Latest Reports from Leading
Gov. JJuJtcr, Mayor Palmer, Congressman-
elect Collins and others were tho guests of the
Merchants' Club, Boston, last Saturday night.
Gov. Butler made a speech. Tho primary
causes of the decadence of American commerce,
he said, are the thanges in tho build of shipi
from wood to iron and the war of the rebellion,
nud the- principal remedy is not in free ships,
but in the manner of ruuning tho ships. If
Bo-ton wants to maintain her eminence as a
commercial port she must nialco connection
with the waicr-borno commerce of the United
Stater; in other words, tho Hoosac tunnel must
join with the Erie canal. "Water-borne com
merce is from four ro ciglit times cheaper than
any other commerce, and ho appealed to those
present to open through ways to tlio great
Wof.t. When this is done Boston will be tho
nearest cntreport to Europe. It would be better
to put capital in this than in some of the cat-and-dog
tchemto out in Arizona ; it is better to
courage honest labor than to engage iu
Dr. Xorvin Green, president of the Western
Union Telegraph Company, appeared on Satur
day before" the sub-committee of tho House
Judiciary Committee, by invition, and discussed
provisions of the' bill recently introduced by
Mr. Joyce, of Vermont, for the regulation of
telegraph and cable companies. He said tho
Western Union had nearly 400,000 miles of
ivire enough to girdle the earth lifteen times
and 1.:,G00 ollires scattered in every Stale and
Territory of the Union, and in the Provincesof
Canada, 'from the borders of New Foundlandat
the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Pneet Sound in
British America. It had also cables to London,
so that it now required more than nine hours
for the sun to rise on its lines, and the feat had
been performed of publishing in tho San Fran
cisco morning papers the quotations and trans
actions of tho closing of the London Exchange
at 3 o'clock of the samo day.
The prolonged drought in Maine, New Hamp
shire, and Vermont has been productive of most
disasterous results. The loss of water power,
it appears, is serious, aud there is "inuch do
mestic distress. In Manchester, N. II., sonic
2,000 operatives are idle on account of the mills
being obliged to shut down. The lumbermen
of Maine suffer severely, the product of tho
saw mills being reduced by some 20,000,000
feet. The rivers of Maine are lower than for
half a century, and tho losses on account of
suspended operations reach many thousand
dollars. The mills on the Penobscot lose over
$100,000. The establishments on tho Kenne
bec, Androscoggin, and Saco are likewise crip
pled. Farmers and householders aro greatly
In 1SS0 the exports of grain by sail were
63,376.000 bushels; by steam, 49,060,000 bushels.
In 1SS1 the exports "by sail wero 19,007,000
bushels; by steam, 53,532,000 bushels. In 1651
our wheat and corn crops wero both short, and
as a consequence our exports of lfas2 were ma
terially affected thereby. The sail shipments
for that year were 6,231,259 bushels, while those
by steam wero 39,876,449 bushels, making a
total of 46,152,733 bushels for the year. Tho
conclusion is thus evident that steam will
crowd the sailing vessels from the grain trade.
Another important fact to be noted is that not
a single bushel of grain was shipped to Europo
from Xew York in a vessel bearing the Ameri
Wm. G. Morris, collector of customs at Sitka,
Alaska, is confident the rich mineral deposits
of Alaska must soon attract attention. Tho
lodes found at the base of tho mountains,
which can be traced up their sides, are being
worked by surface-diggers to advantage. Last,
season a small force of men inado over $230,000.
Little respect, however, is paid to tho proprie
tary interests of others, and tho diggings have
been much interfered with. Considerable
Pacific coast capital is finding its way into
Alaska, and has already brought into promi
nence lines of mines as large as tho whole
Reliable information has been received from
various sections of North Carolina to tho effect
that the cotton crop of that State will be over
50,000 bales less than last year, and that great
quantities of cotton left in the fields unpicked
have been badly damaged by snow. It is esti
mated that the cotton crop of Virginia will be
less by several thousand bales than it was last
year. The difference in the receipts of cotton
in Petersburg, Va., up to date and the receipts
for the corresponding time last year is over
John Eaymond died in Scranton, Pa., a few
days ago, aged S3 years. In ls23 he built the
first mile of railroad track that was ever laid
in America for actual commercial business.
This was on the Delaware and Hudson Canal
Company's Road between Honesdale and the
coal mines at Carboudalc, Pa. On this mile of
track, on tho 2ath of August, 1829, the first
locomotive ever run in America was tested. It
was run by Horatio Allen, who is now living
at East Orange at the age of nearly 90 years.
The annual report of City Comptroller Patti
son, of Philadelphia, puts the revenue of the
city from all sources for the vear 1882 at
$13,125,401.97. The total expenditures for tho
yearwere $13.255,63 1.33. The balance on hand
nt the beginning of tlie year wa-s $2.250.693.4 1.
The funded debt of the city January 1, 1883,
was $67,468,316.21, aud the floating debt at the
bamedatewas $155,376.17, the total debt having
been decreased $706,511.31 during the year.
The entire numbc-r of railroads sold last year
according to tho Italltaiy Age, was sixteen, and
most of them of minor importance. The total
mileage was 867i miles, represented by $26,160,
000 ot capital stock and $39,265,001) of bonds
and other debts. This is a better showing than
in any year since tho era of railroad bank
ruptcy set in.
A number of cotton manufacturers met at
Atlanta Tuesday and organized the Southern
Cotton Manufacturers' Association by the elec
tion of J. F. Hanson, of Macon, president, and
T. B. Dallas, of Nashville, secretary and treas
urer. The convention of the Bricklayers' National
Union at Piovidem-e, Ii. I., on tho 10th inst.
elected JItnryO. Cole, of New York, president;
David It. Gibson, of Ontario, vice-president;
and L. Carpenter, of Ohio, secretary.
W. T. Blackwell, of Raleigh, N. C, has sold
his interest in the firm of Blackwell & Co.,
manufacturers of Durham smoking tobacco, to
his iartiKr, Julian S. Carr. for $250,000, but
reserves royally on the "Bull" brand.
Chicago's elevators have 5,370,000 bushels of
wheat, 2,828.000 of corn, 1,518,000 of oats, 459,
000 of rye ami 263,000 of barley, making a total
of 10,468,000 bushels, about the name a a week
ago and a year ago.
Returns show that during the year ended
September 31 last, 175,418 persons arrivod in
Canada, of whom 76,72a went on to the United
States aud 98,691 remained in that country.
Tho first cargo of corn in bulk shipped to
Europo fiom fcavannah, Oa., was loaded from
tho new elevator, Tu.wluy, aboard tho British
steamship Mareka for Liverpool.
TheTexas legislature lias adopted a bill with
drawing the filly cent laud from sale.
Some Ktirniiig OuestioiiH.
To the Editor National Tkibune:
Last week Rev. D. W. Sprinkle, late private
of the Seventy-eighth Ohio volunteer infantrv,
delivered two lectures on Andersonville and
prison life during the late war. The lectures
were delivered in the M. 12. church, which was
literally picked. The lectures had the effect
of setting some of our people to thinking. A
uumljcr ol our old fossils are contending that
such hctures are wrong; that they tend to
stir up partisan feelings; that the war and its
railt should be forgotten as soon as possible,
and that the minds of the young should not bo
poisoned by reading and listening to such nar
ratives, &c. Will you plcaso answer a few
questions, which none of our soldier-haters
have vet answered to mv rci '.infant inn v vi.,
should the trials and sufferings of our soldiers
te Jorgotteu? In what respect wero the deeds
of the soldiers of the late w;$ less glorious than
were thoso of the soldiers b the war of the
Revolution, the war of 1R12, or tho war with
Mexico? Why should our Fourth of July orators
extol thedeods of the heroes of tho three former
wars and remain silent in recaid to the List
and greatest war this Nation ever witnessed?
What particular poison will be instilled in tho
minds of tho young by the narrativo of tho
events of tho rebellion ? Would it have nerved
the arm of tho soldiery of tho late war to havo
been told t a tho greatest blessing that could
be conferred upon the Nation after it had been
preserved from destruction would bo tho con
signment of their deeds to oblivion? Will
such an event havo a tendency to fill tho
ranks, should occasion again occur to put an
army in the field to repel an armed foe? Any
light you may be able to shed upon the above
subjects will bo received with gratitudo by
your humble servant o no of the to be forgot
ten Ouio Soldier.
THE STOCK MARKET.
Eericn of tho lVcck In Wall Street and Closing
Spccinl to The National Tribune.
Ni:w Yokk, Jan. 17. Tho course of tho
market has been steadily upward from tho
beginning to the end of to-day's business. The
movement has been duo almost entirely to en
ergetic pushing on the part of tho Bull's clique,
but there aro undoubtedly some outside buy
ing. It would be strange if there wero not.
It is a season of tho year when outsiders aro
likely to bo enlisted, if ever they are to be
Until within the last two days there has been
an entire absence of them from the market.
Their presence may he construed in two differ
ent ways, as an element of strength and as an
element 6f weakness. If their number is largo
and increasing and their confidence and en
thusiasm great then wo may look for quite a
Bull market for just such a period of time if
theso factors continue to exist. If, on tho other
hand, they aro few and sporadic, and if their
buying only lasts, as on previous occa
sions, for two or thrco days, then wo may
look for an immediate transit of stocks from
strong hands into weak ones and a speedy cul
mination of the present rise. In any event the
sales of stocks can be but from two sources, viz.,
from tho Bull cliques and from the old hold
ers ; there aro no Bears. We do not seo any
thing in tho situation to warrant any decided
expression of opinion. Stocks are concentrated
in the hands of parties who want to sell them,
and if possible at higher prices. Of courso
every effort is being made to manufacture pub
lic opinion in order to bring about this result.
When tho movement shall havo succeeded, and
the public shall have been loaded, tho market
will be a sale. If tho movement does not suc
ceed, tho market will be a sale. Money about
5 per cent.

Hitherto a low-priced watch has been tho very poorest
of investments; being of no value a3 a time-keeper, nnd
n constant source of expense and annoyance to its owner.
The WAT12KHLKV WATCH will be found a
marvel of simplicity, accuracy, and cheapness.
MHII'Mi, because it is composed of less than one-half
tlie usual number of parts in a watch, which are so
arranged as to be easil v cleaned or repaired.
Al'CUttATU, because it will run twenty-four hours,
and keep time equal to the better grades of watches.

at a price within the reach of everybody.
