The inquiry is almost daily made as
the canse of the low prices which prevail
for wheat. In 1884 prices for wheat at
Raltiir.ore ranged about the same figures
as now, and in ltU fully ten cents lower
than at present, good to prime selling at
75 to 80 cents per bushel of 60 pounds.
The special cause of the low price is in a
measure the abundance and excellence of
the present crop, and the lack of demand
from Europe, where the yield is represen-1
ted a? large.

On Tuesday afternoon as Messrs. Chas.

ran out to them and being unable to
speak English hail great difficulty in mak?
ing his wants or his treatment known,
they brought him here and .sending for
Messrs. S. Nushanm and Jacob Metzinger,
(who speak and understand the German
language,) it was ascertained that his
name was F. Franz. Codlitz, and that he
and P. Schramm were traveling afoot
from Alexandria to Strasburg, and that
on or near the locality named, he had
been assaulted violently by Schramm by a
blow upon tho head which rendered him
insensible for several hours, and he sup?
posing him dead, had taken from hi?, per?
son his pocket-book containing flO.T-', hat
and shoes, and his satchel containing all
his clothes. Schramm had been seen in
