But little has beer, accomplished so far in the way of legislation, and consequently I have blit little of interest \ j.^ to write. The first bill introduced was by Col. Stevens, of Hennepin county, and it is a bill to appropriate money for the purpose of having Minnesota properly represented at the Centennial Exposition. Its author modestly asks for $35,000. It lias been referred to a committee, and will probably not be urged for a week or ten days. Judging from the conversation by the members, as the subject is discussed at the hotels, there is manifestly a disposition to appropriate but little money, it any, for Centennial purposes. Perhaps $10,000 will be appropriated    I do not believe that more than this amount can be. Its friends, however, with a the persistency of sincere men, who believe that the future of our State will be materially brightened, will make a strong effort to pass the bill as originally introduced. It is claimed by its friends, that with $35,000, Minnow** can make such a display of the products of her soil and manufactories as to attract the attention of the Nations of the world, and as a consequence, thousands of emigrants, who would otherwise be permitted to drift into other channels and become citizens of other States, would be induced to set tie upon ber vast prairies, lf it is true as claimed by many distinguished writers, that each uew settler is worth a thousand dollars to his adopted State. there is considerable force to this argument.

Y. When two years of age, his father moved to Clinton county, N. Y In the war of 1812, William enlisted as a teamster, and was with tho army in its operations and movements about Plata-burg, for which he'was awarded a bounty land warrant by the government in 1814. In tho fall of that year. he, with ’..is father moved to Tioga county, N. Y. Here he engaged in the lumber business and farming, operating in his lumbering trade upon the Susquehanna river for a period of 41 years He was married to Margaret Lane * and raised a family of four sons and fica daughters, all of whom are yet living, and grown up to man and womanhood, excepting one son who died a few years ago. In the spring of 1857, Mr White removed to this county with his family. and settled in the town of Nunda, on the 17th of June, of that year. Making over nineteen years residence in this county.

The Senate and House have each had an election case to settle. In the 38th senatorial district composed of Martin and other southwestern counties, I. P. Durfee was elected by about 600 majority. Owing to the ignorance or careless of two or three County Auditors, the returns were not forwarded to the Auditor bf the senior county as the law requires. The certificate of election was therefore given to Mr Thompson, w ho took his seat and held it until it was investigated by the Senate, when the voice of the people as expressed at the polls found expression in a resolution to admit Mr. Durfee. In the contested election case in die House, more time was required In Dakota county Mr. Baker received the certificate, owing to the town of Empire making no return of IOO votes cast for his opponent, Mr. Siebenaller. Counting the IOO votes, he had a majority of 33, and of course contested the seat. Mr Baker admitted the claim of Mr. 8iebenaller as to the town of Empire, but undertook to offset the majority of 33 by showing illegal voting. Each party was represented by able counsel. W. VV.

A large number of depositions were introduced, and the case was contested at every point with all the fervor arid force of the attorneys. It resulted iii giving 8iebetiallcr his scat.
