.Tip Legislature pf Illinois is railed
upon to appropriate $3o0,ft00 to Keep up
the Penitentiary at Joliette, and par
tics stand ready to pay this and $4,000
more for the rent of the Prisoner's la
bor, if they can bo transfered to Alton,
which would Ik) a saving to the State
of . S-f ,fXK) a year, if the Penitentiary
was located more favorably for work.
Nebraska may profit by these facts if
she vill. A Penitentiary, although
Sri the present state of society, a neces
sary,, institution, may also be a very
burdensome one, unless economy be
considered In Its location. The buil-dlris-itself
would cost Immensely more
sixty miles from the quarry than one
within onoor two miles thereof.
The prospective growth of this coun
ty In population," wealth and business,
never was so promising as now. The
farming community and the towns on
the river Peru, Brownville, Nemaha
City;1 Aspln wall; Hillsdale and St. De-
rain, all are catching the spirit, and
'are strcatching,.out In nil directions,
crowding 'the hills back,- building
dwelling, churches, school houses
arid 'other conveniences of civilization.
TL. fanners are contemplating the
cultivation of a few more broad acres.
They have 'for some' time' past had
tlitfr eye -on a certain strip of land just
outside the field, revolving in their
mind jnst the labor and the material
it would take to fence it In with the
rest,' The laborer is taking advantage
of the spirit of competition among
farmers to secure the best hands for
the . summer. The mechanics are
viewing the pleasing prosjeet ahead
of plenty of work, and pay. The mer
chant is contemplating the idea of put
ting up a few more shelves, or to so
economize room -as to make space for
a few mote goods, and the newspapers
are enlarging to meet the growing
wants of commerce. We opine from

printer Carder. 'We find in its issue
of the 20th of February j 6vcrtro c 1
umns, very respectfully devoted' in
criticising the correspondence of the
Advertiser. Such slashing editorial
serv ice should not go long unrewar
ded, still it is hopeful that no heavy ap
propriations of State funds will be nec
essary to liquidate their demands.
Doubtless no averment on our part
would convince the sage and wise
genious who presides over the columns
of that paper, that we arc neither ac
tuated by "'pithy spite" nor "rancor
ous yellow-eyed malice" in writing for
the Advertiser. .
The Commonwealth Adjutant Gci
eral'i of the opinion that the question
of extravagance depends upon the
fact as to whether the State Treasury
or (what ought to have been in there)
the "State Capitol Building Funds"
is the funds drawn upon,' and because
'we don't see it," flippantly talks of
malice and. spite; reminding one of
the spoilt child, who, if you are not
continually .petting, praising and
humoring itsevcry whim, the offender
is charged with spite, malice or jeal
ousy; We are confident that no rea
sonable, Independent thinking man
looks upon the correspondence of the
Advertiser in the light which so wor-
rys our editorial friend of the Com
The Legislature had a large amount
of businnss to transact and but a short
time 'in 'which to do the same, and
much ofits wo'rk had to be done with
out due consideration ; it might have
been malice that induced us to so ex
press ourselves, but the discovery Is
due "to the , editor of the Common
wealth. , i ; i .
-.We are now informed- that Mr.
Chamber's bill ' for ' selecting State
Lands has not been allowed. The com
mittee to whom thebills of these Com
missionere were refered, and who re-'
ported a resolution strongly censuring
the. payment of such extravagant
charges were . otherwise informed.
Most certainly it "would have been too
much trouble for the Advertiser man
to say that it (the bill of $3,900 .for
furniture, chandeliers, sundries, &c.,)
was paid out of the proceeds of the
sale of Lincoln lots, and did not cost
the people a dollar," for such was not
the fact; such "presistant misstate

Commonwealth man, however. What
Is said about a Senator and two rail
roads,. Is to us, without observable
point. -Wo await further elucidation
from the editor's very agreeable pen bo
forc venturing In such "muddy wa
ters." We' accept the gentleman's
arithmetical solution and should con

lie not mention the fact that he came
to his knowledge on a casual visit to
the House when the subject was un

In the opinion of the CommonwcaUJt,
our oposition to extravagant expen
diture of the public funds "indicates
a narrowness of intellect, and a lit
tleness of soul that surprises us in a
western man." We suppose it can't
now lo helped, for oppose we are
bound to do. We feel easier on learn
ing that our unconscious "pithy spite"
has injured no one, and that our "per
sistent misstatements" do not mislead.
It is painful to the Commonwealth
man to think that as we "belonged to
the section of the party that triumph
ed in the late Senatorial contest," we
could not be generous enough to be at
least quiet under the immense appro
priation of the "State Capitol Funds"
and of the general funds.
We have some Jjttle reputation for
generosity when our own honor, repu
tation and money are concerned, Mr.
Editor, winch you will doubtless con
ceed on reading this article; were it
not so,' we might feel inclined to be as
abusive as j-ou were insolent.

good deal of minuteness. . ; ;
In the weekly Tribune of the 23d

signature of . Robert D. Holmes the

scarcely knew Mrs. Cunningham at
the time of the murder and was but a
mere child at that time and believes'
him innocent of the murder of Wal

convicted and sentenced, and Mr.
Holmes refers to A. Onkey Hall and

of counsel in the same case, and as en
