Graph operators is River at Millville in Clayton county is a very great Public injury there by stopping the mails Aud preventing Intercourse Between Dubuque Aud Mcgregor on the stage route and whereas the county of Dubuque has caused every Stream in Dubuque county on said route to be Well bridged therefore resolved that the Atte Tiou of the Board of supervisor of Clayton county be called by this Board to the propriety of making an appropriation to the building of said Bridge and that a copy of this preamble and Resolution be forwarded by the clerk to the Clayton county Board. On motion of or. Bahl a committee of two be appointed to compare books of delinquent taxes ordered to he made out by to insurer Stewart Aud have the prope amounts charged up to the treasurer. Messes.

James Mcle an As the amount has been paid. Of motion the Board adjourned. Saturday Jan. 15, 1870. Roll called. Quorum present. Minutes of yesterdays proceedings read Aud confirmed. Petition of Al. Gremm ii it a1, for Bridge in Augh to elect him on the first formal ballot and As the result shews he was not disappointed. Judge Wright is a Strung Man an i though the people of your Section failed to secure a senator from their locality they wiil find in the judge a Man with heart and brain in ugh to take in the whole state. The people will find in him a True defender of the right at All times Aud everywhere. The contest for the Short term had been from the first very Uncertain. Toe whole interest had been absorbed in the main fight. There were s x or eight candidate in the Field and most of them of Hegi oud urging their claims in person. The exception in this was judge Cooley of your City he did not arrive until late the night before the caucus and then manifested hut Little inter est in the matter. It via currently believed Here that the judge was not a candidate with a View to secure his election but to accomplish some other object. At All events neither he or his friends seems i in i h Trou hied about the result. I think on the whole the Dubuque delegation in Iii interest will go away Well satisfied with the result the first ballot stood As follows Gunnel 39, Vandever 24, col. Scott 8, Cooley 7, Howell 38, stubs 4, and Kasson 2. Howell was Terai rated on the next ballot by a Large majority. There had been a Strong Effort on the part of the soldiers in the legislature to secure the election of a military Man. Ii was claimed by the friends of Gen. Vandiver that he should we the Man hailing As he did. From Dubuque and the worthy judge Murdock of Clayton county urged his claims in a Strong Appeal Oil behalf of hts Friend and the soldiers of the state Aud it a a a thought at Oue time Fie might be the Man but it was otherwise ordered. The Man selected is in every Way worthy of the position. He has fought the Battles of the party Ever since us organization and his election is a fit return. The senatorial contest of 1870 is thus brought to a close. Thai it a resulted in the selection of Good and True Tutu none will deny. I Here has been personal disappointment and All that but the True interests of the state has been Subserve. Now that the work has been done the third House stands adjourned. It has worked hard and deserves Well if not of the stale at least of the candidates. It has done its duty Aud will no doubt again re assemble in 1872 to again engage in the strife. May All who helped to tight the Battle that has just closed live to reap the fruits of the Victory Aad to acknowledge that in this a in All else there is an Over ruling Providence that shapes the destinies of the people. Ojus xxv a. Publicans to the objection of democracy that it is illegal they simply reply if new York can repeal Why Ohio Tau Tiff aet by her repeal another Way. And that the cae virtually stands As it did before the legislature attempted to repeal its ratification. The official investigation into the irregularities alleged to have been discovered in the Revenue returns of several distillers and whisky dealers in the thirty second collection District is still conducted at collector Bayl ions office no result is Likely to be arrived at for some time. A of Ai Mitt of three from Susquehanna Jersey City and Buffalo shops waited upon Jay i of id yest r Lay asking to be reins ated in the service of the company at the same time proposing the adjustment of the difficulties.

Lapp congressional Printer in a private letter to a gentleman of this City denies the truth of the statement that a late investigation of his office showed that i a Large sum of Money had been recklessly decl on the contrary there has been no j charges made to Congress whatever. In the House no investigation has taken place. The commercial says Chas. A. Lord in j the dry goods Trade has been compelled to 1 suspend through endorsed papers for other parties. Mcdonald a Mccolley i Woolen dealers also reported suspended. The Segeant at arms of the United states House of representatives is Here to sub a la witnesses for the banking committee relative to the Gold investigation. It is reported that an injunction is to be applied for re training the Lake Shore Railroad company tor paying dividends upon its Stock upon the ground that Money tor that purpose had been borrowed. The Rumor not authenticated. Copeland the alleged principal in the conspiracy to defraud the fourth National Bank. Has surrendered himself. Oakley cashier of the merchant s Exchange Bank has also Given himself up and bailed in the sum of $10,000. A special dispatch from Atlanta of the 14th says the Senate met this morning. Coiler who took the oath on the 10th, having made application to withdraw his oath set ting Forth that it was made under Unis sapper Henston and party pressure was allowed to withdraw. Seventeen democratic members of the House and three democratic senators who were in the old organization and a that time took a oath declaring themselves eligible have made written application to be relieved of their political disabilities and refuse to yield to party pressure and take the oath.
