Argument Before Judge Fisher Upon De* marrerto the Indictment. Wasboiqtos, December a In the case of Conover, upon argument of the demurrer to the Indictment, the prisoner was brought lu o conrtbefore Judge Flaber this morn ing. ihe accused is quite a floe looking mao, an parently twenty-six or f.renty-eigbt y arsold, six n-vt high, oval bee. blue eye* and dark hair. Mr. Hooding, fortbc prisoner, after briefly reciting a hbtorv of the case, proceeded to argue the de murrer to the indictment filed yesterday, taking the following grounds: First. The Itiue on which the evidence ot defendant was given was so immaterial issue. The so-called depositions were rut depositions, and were not affidavits, e\ en the Judge Advocate, General Holt, bavins no authority to administer au oath. If false they would not have auproited the charge of perjury, and, therefore, anything said as to their truth or faUtty would not support the charge. The said depositions were never swore to, and could >,u have been evidence. The defendant was sworn to testify as to the truth or falsity of .aid depositions, and as to the truth or falsity ot Hate's statement, which was altogether about raid depositions, all of which Was immaterial to the inquiry authorized to be made. Sccand. Ad mitting said deposition* were proper and legiti mate evidence, the Court does not expressly state that they were admitted as evidence la the In- Spending, which omission cannot be sup in thejlndlcuncnu Third. The first and sec ond assign treats of prrjnry are repugnauhthe first alleging that the defendant denied litre's state ment, and Ibe second (bat be denies It In the main. Fourth. A* to the second assignment, the defendant says in substance that a part of Bare'* .tatementls true,and* part net true. Ibe In dictment should ettontihe part about which the f Ue statement b nude for proper certainty. Both the first and second questions are too general to support the charge of perjury. Fifth. Fbat the defendant has reason to aoubt, or docs doubt, Is Immaterial a* an abstract question. The fact that the answer forestall* farther inquiry Into ibe bets does not make U perjury, Hts doubts and icasona to doubt are millers of personal opinion, not even professional opinion, which sfoco Is admirable a* evidence, and Id which ctrjury can seldom I ever be sustained. Mrih. The ssld deposition* or at least contents, should be set out in the indictment for proper certaiuty. The defendant may desire and be sblv to prove the truthfulness of the said deposi tions. aod that he bad no reason to doubt and cld rot doubt their truth fulness. The history recited by Sir. Goodlft: Is to the elfcct that. After the trial of the conspirator*. Judge Dolt took certain affidavit! lending u> tm* plicate JcfL Davis la the conspiracy. Among ether*. Joseph A.

Display, of Specimens at the Uliiiols Central Dallroad—Samplcs of West ern Prodoce—The Goods Beady for Shipment. Oarzmm’s Project for an Indian Dele- galloD. Tbe extensive preparation* which have been in progress for some time past throughout the vari ous Western States, to send lo tbe Paris Exposi tion specimens of Western produce and manufac ture, are now completed, and tbe goods are ready for shipment to New York. Chicago was made ibe central place of deposit for tbe State of 1111- nols, acd the LUnoi* Central Railroad Company I enacted the use of tiiclr depot as a temporary re ceptacle for the various articles. A visit to tbe offices of the Land Department revrsls at present an abundance of all kinds ol produce, represent irg tbe mineral and agricultural wealth of Illi nois, Its industry and Its development in every branch of progress. Our worthy Alderman, C. C P. lioldeo. Esq., the land salesman of Ibe road, towliomwaseoirn.tcdtbe task of assorting and arrarglzg the specimens, has bestowed every pos sible ere ra the proper fulfillment of this arduous duty, baring tbe articles all correctiv labelled, and packed into the rates which will be shipped early in tbe week for New York, Aroongtbc specimens of various kinds ofproduce now at the Land Department, we observed a van collection of samples representing the agricultural development of the West—corn, barley, rye, oats, wheats of various kinds, sorghum, Chinese sugar cane, broom corn, surprise oats, and cotton, both In the raw state and manufactured. Tbe Illinois Central Railroad Company have themselves con tributed an immense variety of specimens which will prove of great interest to tbe Europeans. There are bottled samples of soli from the Illi nois Cenual r> ad. buttle* of grain* from various portions of tbe State, case* of pork, neef and bams, and a variety of articlea too multifarious to be enumerated. In addition to the specimens from onr own Side there ere a variety from other Western crates which bare been forwarded to Chicago fur shipment. Minerals of all kinds from Michigan Wisconsin and lowa, Including all tne forma tions, with copper, lead and iron, bnilding alone, cement, and mmble from lowa City, coals from Danville. DnQuoin. Italic and other parts. Tae collection is a very comprehensive one and will serve to convey some idea to for eigners of <he wealth and indnatrlal progress of the Great Northwest. The show of agricultural Implements. It snonld be mentioned, which was anticipated to be very complete, falls considerably short of wfaat we were led to expect. We note tbat one of (he famous SchntQer wagons Is among the Chicago specimens. In connection with the subject we may mention the existence of a very interesting projectfor send* lug a few specimens of the aborigines to tne great Exposition—a few real, live Indians, who win t mbtlees be regarded In Europe by the mats of the people with more cmiosiiy than all the minerals and imp'etnents nut together. The scheme wia originated byP. T. Bonrnro, Esq„ of New York, os Com-uluioner for Connecticut, who Is now in this city, and has »>een token np and carried Into effect by 3. £5, Derby, the United States Commissioner. As soon as It was understood that arruigeme&ts could be made in Parts forthn accommodation of outride exhibitions, Mr. Barn am, with bis usual enterprise, conceived the Idea of sending over a few good specimens of oar original native redskins, a?id prepared to expend a considerable sum of money for (be purpose. He communicated on the subject with Mr. Derby, and a scheme was proposed to send over a group of Indians without calling for tnv appropriation of public money or public subscription. Commissioner Rowland, who represents vat loua tiutes and Territories of the Northwest, acting on the suggestions of Mi-Bar* nam, took hold of the project; and a plan was soon de* eloped to seed a delegation of Indian tribes to the Exposition tor pnrpos a of scientific study and the gratification of the Europeans. From a letter address-d by Mr. Rowland to Mr. Barnmn on (be subject, we learn that arruege aicnta have been made to collect and forward about thirty picked men from the tribes known as the fclonx, Dakotab and Chlppewaa, consisting of sav twentv men, five sqna«rs and Jhelrrblidren. h here will be selected mtb great ran-, their physique, their habits, as well ss parity of blood rcceinng the utmost coofiaeratlon. They will be accompanied by three Interpreters and one medicine man, under the con'roi aadcare of an experienced agent. It is proposed that they -hall carry with them a variety of goods o* their own manufacture, and will probably exhlbl l on the grounds of the Champ de Mars. A suitable space may be apportioned ontdoe of the Exposi tion building tor the erection of their wigwams. This Interesting party will probably embark for Parts abont the 10th of March. It Is very de sirable that such a representation should be made, and i be project will oonblless receive the most fa vorable consideration from the Imperial Com missioner, In order to secure the fnlleat benefits to the Indians aid to those who bars undertaken the risk. We understand that Mr. Barntun. see ing bis suggestions so aMy earned out, baa re linquished nls connection with the project. OUR BRIDEWELL.

The sale of Use personal property of the Tru sell Mtate on Friday, and the prices brought as compared wuh the Intrinsic values, may well be a matter of comment with reflecting people.

Innocent young men are first " roped in," through tbeir so cial and convivial bablis, to associate with loose who are worse, and by degrees they become tally ronreioas that they are risking tbeir altuations ana their mural stand ing in a better circle of acquaintance. But Ibe allnrtng haunts they secretly visit have msriiold attractions to them, not least of which 1* ibe barard of exposure Incurred In an evil boar :hcr borrow money of tbeir companions—more money than they can replace from tbeir salaries. Tbedebtwascieatcd in hours of excitement at tbe gaming table, when to have abruptly left tbdr friends would bate seemed weak and unmanly. To meet with them subsequently without paying tl cm, would biand them with dishonor. To sbtm tbeir society would subject them to the dan ger of being v lolled at tbeir places of business by min whom tbeir employers would at once remark upon as gamblers, oud point plainly to a tacit ad mission of their ascociatio's. In tbla dilemma comes rathe temptation lo steal. For a long tunc it Is resisted, but at la*t they Call. The gamblers of, this dlyfunfortunat ly, fill fsr below ibe mvk in imitating the better qualities of tfce "ma«trt"G orco Tnwoell.

From two to five times the usual price of rent Is paid by these wretched women into tbe bands or tbeir merciless landlords, that they m«y carry on their vAe traffic. Thefr bouses arc sometimes "polled* 1 bv tbe police authorities, ard they are fined (35, ISO or (too. Urjihleto p»y it, they apply for aid to the gam bler*, wbo get tin in out of tbeir troubles by re cclrli'g a bonus Taiytng from (33 to SSO, accord ing fo the amount their victims can possibly be made to obligate themselves to pay. Prom tbe gambler •* Cap," and those of bu class on Wells ftreet, thronen Monroe and Randolph streets, to those gamblers wbo were nrond of the ac quaintance of George Trussel, there is only a dliu-retjre in degree, not In kind. Aft seek to lire In tbe world without honest labor, and bare ■ deal t to acquire money for tbe sole purpose of gratifying tbeir individual pleas urc'. A love of any viruefor its own sake, a respect tor the bonor of women, or an unalloyed friendship (n the hour of adversity, never ebarae leme the career of the gambler. If George Troa sel. the ehlninglight among them, possessed any of these virtues. It Is much to be regretted that they could sot have been pre-erved in some sub stantia) shape to have be<m disposed of to bis so lid out friends at lb* sale on Friday, as the most useful souvenirs whicn could have been left them.

IDATBinONML ADVERTISE* DENTS* Calls For Correspondence—Fools and Beenes. The column of a dally paper headed “Corres pondence Wanted” furnishes an Interesting art], cle of mental food for the digestion ol the phllos opher. Although the topics presented for reflec tion are not of the moat practical or Improving character, they show op quite brilliantly the sen timental and verdant stdeot the number* /if all acts ana both sexes who take thr pains to air (hemseh cs before the public. The great majority •if ibe proper*!* for “correrponaence” come from »of-hesdea youths “between the ages of slxtoej aid iwcnty-oiit,** who Men anch gushingnames .-a ••IlaTTy Seymour,** “Clarence Le Vere. ,r “Arch- Lsld Mortimer.” “Mind,” “ill! 11 cent," and ••Henrietta Isabcl'e.” *1 here romaoic creatarea are generally impressed with tbe idea Hat there Is an aching void In their : extensive oosoa*, which the ulnuanlive world cai.nut fltlj that until their “ affinities” are fonnd they are alone and friendless. And so they stray Into tbe oewspaoers with their stereofvped phrase, “olxecifan, love, and matrimony,” and clo*e op with the pleasing suggestion, “photos exchang cd.” When age has brought wisdom to these Uck-a-dalsical beings, the reading of these early ptrfo.marce* will answer the purpose of an emetic, and thus prove valuable as a substitute fur a pbysioan’i* prescriptions. Then there la a mature, bat hardly leas weakly tint of a-plrauta for comapondcnce. who apeak of “ I'latooic aneedon ” and “ mutual Improve ment” One of this claaa, who signs the languid name of “ Estelle.” wants to form an culstolatory acquaintance with some gentleman. x ‘£rne and Ui.d,” who does sot own a nunared feet nor spor i diamonds on the stmt.” Observe tbe Un common* rhyme which shows the lady to be one of talutc’e poet*. Her objection to centipedes i certaialy natural, and her dislike to the pnblic dt.«p<ay of expensive jewelry hints at tbe modesty tea n-dnemest other taste. “ A lady with a prac tical view of lift” announces her willingness “ to form tbe acquaintance ot a isidd'e-aged gentle man of means;” in abns nese-Uke way that savors more ot Mammon than ot Copid. The number of voutg cecilemen “with plenty of time asd mosey,” who strangely lack tbe acquaintances which that happy condition wo ibi naturally be tuppored to bring, and seek to remedy the want through the mails, la singularly large. If the turpiua time, which they undouhiedly hare, were employed lo increase their limited stock of com mon sense, their means and information, which a-e Invariably email, might be conalaembly in created. This valuable hint, for which no charge U made, will apply to all the “fasonaJng young pent*,” M r*T young men,” “romantic school gitW “interesting widow**” and “gentlemen of ample means” who rash into print foi “fto,” “love,” “matrimony,” or “the consequences.” If the “photos” of ail ad- Teitlscrs of this kind could be collected, tbe majority would find appropriate places in (be rogues* or fools* galleries, cut while most of the** notices are prompted by Immoral and di-bocest motive*, some are merely tbe result ol an Id e cunotliv, or lore ot amusement. without any objections tie Intentions, aad a few ana from realty noneat individuals, who take this method of obtaining wives.
