Pc nut following suggestions of the Secretary of state in his annual report in regard to Tito Public printing contain a great Deal of truth. Tha next legislature should give this Brunch of sub Lic expenditure a thorough investigation and make the Burthen on the people by taxation to support it of Light As a possible. Great Reform could be made in this matter without injury to the character of the work or the prompt execution of it by Law the Secretary of state b charged with Trio duty of superintending the Public printing and consequently Lias the examining and certifying the accounts of the state Printer. While in the discharge of this duty it has frequently occurred to me that a modification of the Law regulating the duties of the state Printer and the once paid by the state for Public printing might int crinkly Conduce to the Public interest on the score of Economy. It Isa cud that cannot have Esca kid the attention of any one conversant with the administration of the state government that the item of Public printing in the annual expenditures bears heavily upon the people. The Laws now in Force regulating the duties of state Printer and the Price of Public printing Woro enacted Many years Ngo when the Public printing was comparatively Small and the facilities for executing such work tar inferior to Liat they Are at the present Day. Otott Milb mule race started by the committee As the great feature for the fun Loving at at the next Marion county agriculture society b going to be copied at the next National horse show to be held at Springfield mass., in september next the Groat attraction at the last National horse show was the Trot bet ecu lined and Flora Temple the most celebrated on record and this mule race will take its place. It will make More fun and draw a larger crowd than All the fast trotting horses in the country. The following notice of the Donkey once is from the Springfield Republican a a at every show then Are a class of Beautiful horse of moderate abilities. Like some handsome humans it the notorious Jim Lake of Kansas Lias at last got himself into a serious difficulty by shooting Down in wild blood a most exemplary citizen. Jenkins was one of the founders of Lawrence a devoted free. State Man and one of the first slate officers elected under the Topeka Constitution. The following account is Given of the murder by the so Louis Democrat of the 8th inst the fact that Gaius Jenkins of Lawrenc was killed by James 11. I.an., a in Friday last has already been re to sorted by told Grapoli. To particulars of the horrible affair As we learn from a gentleman who left the territory on saturday morning Are As follows there was a dispute de tween Lane and Jenkins concerning a voluble land claim lying in close proximity to 1-Awrence. Thumb put engendered a cordial hatred which extended to the private relations of the parties. Some weeks ago lanes family arrived in Kansas and Lane took them upon the cont Slud claim without having a Legal title to the sonic the suit concerning the title being still before the tribunal. This action on the part of Lane excited Jenkins but nothing passed Between them till Friday the 4th Insl on ibis Day Jenkins informed line that he intended drawing some water from the Well on the claim. told him to refrain but Jenkins a id no attention to the caution and made his appearance near the claim during the Day. To was provided with a gun and Unave and was accompanied by three companions. As he approached he Laid Down his gun and took up the axe to Knock the Chain fran the lock by which it was fastened. As he stooped Forward Lane approached in front of the House Annex with n loaded shot gun. Jenkins gave a look of Defiance at his enemy and in the next moment fell to the Earth in a Corpse having received an immense charge of Buck shot in lib breast. As Jenkins fell one of his friends fired three times it Gen. Lane one kill missing him another grazing his forehead and the third burying itself in the calf of his leg bringing him to tie ground. It was a harrowing spectacle the body of or. Jenkins was soon removed and Lane taken into custody. Mrs. Jenkins was nearly crazed at the fearful intelligence of the death of her hit land. She is lying in a dangerous condition. We have read of they Are pretty hut not smart. Ave Tenkins bore a most excellent character and his loss have a plan to display these at the coming fair of course be will deeply regretted. With the consent of the owners. It b said Liat the inhabitants of Minorca have the following amusement on their list Viz a Donkey race in which their May be from twelve to Twenty competitors. The rules of the race Are that no one who starts shall turn Buck or Stop and that the last one at the goal shall be considered the Winner. Of course it is for the interest of every a Pirant for the prize to urge Forward the Donkey on which he rides and keep Hack his own Ridden by another. It must be a very comical and ludicrous sport and being a tory unusual thing we throw it out As worthy the attention of the horse committee. Such a rues As b described above could be got up for one twentieth part of the expense of the a Flora Temple and a neut lib play of last year Anil would be almost As it the floods the floods Are upon us 11 it must be evident to the honorable members of the City Council that something should be done for the Protection of their people against the unparalleled i clemency of the Etc meals which seems to have entered into a determined conspiracy to drown them in a second deluge it b proper to state Flint Gen. Lane claims that he was fully justified in shooting Down his adjutant gun enc Nln for strange As it May seem such Jenkins was a and asserts that he can establish he justification before the courts of ids country. The feeling against Lane was general through the territory. Last report indicate that there was some talk of Lynching Lane but it is hardly probable that this will be done. Lane is at present m close custody and he trial will come off at an Early Day. F Ranklin to wn8iltp.

Would it not be an advantage to the fruit growers and others if the Marion county agricultural society would commence meetings this season for the above purpose publish in another column a petition that b now being signed by a Large number of citizens for a change in the Market regulations. It covers the whole Groin ii of complaint. It is a fact evident to every thinking Man that the attendance at Market does not justify the producers in preparing their product and attending Market and the markets will be entirely abandoned unless a change b made and the whole provision business thrown in the groceries and Corner stands. It the Marion boys did not do As Well at their festival on wednesday evening As their services to the Public entitled them to expect.

To the honorable the mayor and common Council of the City it a a Indianapolis the undersigned Memoria lists comprising More Alliati seven eights of the regular Market and store dealers in meat and vegetables in the City of Indi Anapole respectfully represent As follows that the deficiencies of the present Market system in tins c it combined with the Multi it location of private Sale Estabil Slimens not Only injure materially too by iness of your petitioners but of they believe Are even More detrimental to the True interest of our citizens. Indeed while it b problematical whether a healthy and productive Trade at our Market stall can in no stained at All subject to the constant Competition of private Sale shops for the disposition of meat and vegetables it is certain that it cannot be so sustained under present regulations. It is a fact that Many of our Market stalls remain unleashed and vacant that two of our Market houses Are virtually abandoned while at the other the attendance both of producers Anil Consumers b decreasing daily. To maintain both of the above systems b impossible and yet tween the bad vantages of both we. As dealers and the Public As Hyora Are forced to alternate. Which of these systems is to be retained if necessary even to the Earl Orion of the other remains to be determined. Fur ourselves interested As we have been and Stilt Are in both we feel no hesitation in urging the confinement of mint and regu Lable soles to our regular Market Bouses and sure rounding spaces. In support of this position we respectfully offer the following suggestions 1. Tim direct Revenue to the City now curtailed by a loosed stalls would be at once increased if the business referred to was confined to a greater extent to the Market houses. Under now regulations it would be easy to secure on amount of Revenue far beyond Liat needed fur die salary of the Market master. 2. Under the present system Consumers especially of Midi Abl produce Are forced to a considerable extent to Purchase from second Liand dealers inferior supplies at higher prices than Thoy need pay to the producers. It b notorious that the Trade of the private Sale establishment b kept up by purchasing the surplus remaining with regular dealers after Market hours and re exposing to same for Sale from Day to Day often in an unwholesome condition. 8. Trio Early and insufficient i cried of Only three hours from 4 of clock a. Until 7 o clock a. M., al Lowell for Market prevents the attendance of a Large majority of our citizens at die Market houses and forces them to pair close from the limited and already culled Stork of private establishments or to depend on Street speculators for their daily supplies. 4. The present regulations Lead Dir Erdy to forestalling by a my Ula tors who seek opportunities of purchasing produce at the lowest rates to be do a sed of at the highest thus deterring Many from bringing supplies to the City where they Linic repeatedly tailed to realize compensating prices or to find suitable Market facilities. 5. Nor in the connection is it deemed amiss to mention that the scanty attendance upon our markets resulting from the causes designated produce us Favores Able impressions a Jim strangers regarding the real Progress and population of our City. It b a common remark among those visiting Indianapol that while we claim a population of More than 25,000 inhabitants Oft Market Gadi rings indicate less than one fifth of that number. Your Memoria lists finding themselves unable by any resources or efforts of Mieir own to even palliate die evils mentioned and being fully convinced that your honorable Lindy is clothed by express provisions of the City incorporation act with unrestricted Jio Wor in the premises respectively petition that your honorable body Mill provide by ordinance 1. That die Sale of fresh meat fish and vegetables be confined to die Market houses and adjoining tacos and 2. That the Market hours to extended until 11 o clock a. M., on Market Days and Diat during said Houra said sales be so restricted As aforesaid and 3. That a saturday evening Market be established at the most Central Market House for the Benefit of operatives and others receiving their wages at the close of die week or 4. That by other suitable enactments your honorable body will Grant to your petitioners such Relief in the premises a May be proper.

Quot come the softness of tie air and the brightness of Tho rising noon Are influences too charming to to resisted come shall to not have a Nail to night a Quot a such was the invitation i addressed to my Cousin Joo on one of the Tunny Beautiful evenings of last summer. He readily assented and taking up the guitar which be Luul a few moments before carelessly cast aside we started for tie Lake. Arrived there we found our Little a Nymph rocking to and fro As if a patient to escape her moorings. While my companion rigged the sail i contemplated in silence the Lov Lineas of the scene before the surface of the Lake jewelled by to Moon and stars was broken into gentle Ripples that softly lipped the a bore or Nirom singly glided away among the rocks the Mellow Light through which i traced Tho opposite Hills India red to them a softness of Beauty rarely equated. soul grew full of emotion by reason of the glorious loveliness of the scene trembling in the soft Moonlight lingering in tie Groves and hovering Over the dreamy distance. So carried away by it was i that Only after repeated Colls from Jos was my attention directed to the fact that Tho boat was really. What a thing of Beauty she seemed or. Be Bojied in her snowy sail her bosom rising and falling upon the Waters like a Maiden s when dreaming of him she loves. In a moment we were off and away. Proudly did our beauteous Nymph sweep Over the gentle Ripple that in homage showered pearls in her War. A outward bound were we. On on we sped Aud soon far be. Hind As loomed Tho City with its Spires glittering in the Moons Bright Sheen and Here and there a glimmering Light beyond us on the Lurt abruptly Romeo the Shore ahead in dreamy distance Lay sloping Hills while outline right then towered n Rocky Point crowned with Forest Trees. To the we turned our coarse. As we approached the grim shadows that Lay sleeping at its base Joe without a word lowered the sail and ship ted the oars and save their soft dipping no other sound disturbed the silence of the loudly scene before us. Nearer and nearer to the dark shadows we came and now enveloped in them we rested beneath tie jetting rocks. Tie Ripples broke upon their base with a Mournful sound seeming like the sobbing of n broken heart. A shut 1 Joe Liat was Liat a a nothing girl nothing but the splash of a jumping Fisk Quot a no Joe no How i tremble i it was a scream 1 How foolish i am. It was Only my fancy i How like a scream it was How wild Asil it were Tho death scream of an Indian Maiden who tired of life because her Lover has passed to Tho Lippy Hunting ground part with it by burying herself and her desolate heart in the a one of your romantic vagaries. Pray Aillik do not startle me again with their like do not with your Idle prattle break this oppressive silence disturb this Sublime gloom. How love it i i am filled with wild a with shuddering Delight i hear the hollow murmur of Tho water. It b the whispering of spirits from Trio world of Tho dead. List 1&Quot a Joe Joo you frighten me let is away out of the gloom a a nay Aillik dear be not frightened it i with you a Joe. I know you find no pleasure in the gloom your heart is attuned Only to Joy. And i Pray the time May never come when it would be in sympathy with your feelings. It b in sympathy with mine of i have just said. You know my grief he suddenly seized the guitar and with a prelude of two or three sad chords Sang tie following song with a pathos indescribable a none reign Masr no. Those i a Lovyl have All grown Oil a strange in every chilling vacant Gate my son i can air la uie change.

Tha louder words i used to hear Are area land no More into my ear now Nono remember is Nono remember me he ceased. He voice died in the cadence of very Minnif ulness. Tho last tones of the guitar floated away into distance. The murmur of the water was again the Only sound that fell upon my car. A melancholy stole in non my heart and a reverie upon my mind. The Lake seemed but a great tear of sorrow in which we two floated. Joe was not disposed to disturb my reverie but with he right Arm resting upon the guitar he bowed his head Ujjin his hand. Thus enveloped in the grim shadows we sat in deep silence till suddenly there arose upon the Nir a moan seeming so expressive of anguish and despair As to suggest the Wail of a a spirit damned. A Joe a i screamed. But he needed not the incentive of my cry. Having seized Tho oars of suddenly As we had been startled in a twinkling he forced our Little a Nymph far out into the Moonlight. A it was nothing. Amilte although i confess it startled me it was Only the cry of an a there it b again. Of Joo Liat a weakness has come upon a i think we be rather been playing tie fool Aillie by moping in those shadows. It b a Good joke upon me indeed. Think of it in a born in the Woods yet a scared by an owl now a let us laugh and be pay. Como you play a skipper Man the Mcc a hip hoist away a but be played master and Sailor Toth and now the sail hoisted moorings Leeward and a Good Breeze we skimmed Over the Waters with the Speed of Light. There were other parties out on Tho Lake. Upon one from which faintly came the tones of a flute and guitar we bore Down. Like fairy music fell those Dulcet sound upon ears. The Melody was that of the celebrated duct from Norma. After it bad been finished we distinguished a prelude a Jim the guitar then a Ricoli toned Manly voice Sang a a sleeping 1 dreamed scarcely Luul the last note died away Ere there arose upon the air the tones of another voice a a female voice of Melody so rare it might be envied by the Angels.
