The Test Oath.
Shall welmwediafajy Jlace the goTarn-
rdtnt of thfs nation' rh 'the haads -of the-
lea.dcrs.of, the liite.jdnilliqjn i.Ihis.qu(
tion will come directly before .tho next
Corigrcss,an(lTwlI, fUreil fm fact) at
the very opening. Were it submitted to
the people tlie loyal peopleof the nation,
the answer would be a very emphatic, de
termined, and unanimous "KOI " . And
j et there is considerable danger that Con
gress will answer it " Vt.", , '
The question will bo decided by tho
next Congress in its action upon he test
oath, prescribed by the last Congress, which
every person' must take before becoming
eligible for any .United States office. , Un
der this regulation a man must swear
that he has always been loyal to the Uni
ted States, and has never held office under,
or sworn allcciance and civen aid and
comfort to, any pretended government in
opposition to them. Its object was, and,
if adhered to, Us effect will be, to exclude
every active participant in the rebellion
from anyplace of power undqr : he United
Stafw OwmmniL i It is fair r-
tial in its operation, and 'Is a: essential
now as it was deemed t6 be when created.
An effort is now being organized, and
will be pressed with great energy du
ring the coming session, for the repeal
of the oath. That effort will be made in
the interest of certain red-handed traitors,
who have- bcon notorious leaders in the
recent rebellion, and who are now appli
cants for admission to the national halls of
legislation. . If it. is successful, its only
effect will be to. throw wide the doors
of Congress to every rebel general or poli
tician who has become prominent and pop
ular at the South by his energy in, sup
porting treason. Its legitimate result
will be to restore "the Union as it was,"
aud place the loyal North in the attitude
of humble submission to the crack of
Southern whips, ' wielded by rebel slave
drivers. A Certainly, whether or not this oath
should ever e abolished whether or not
tho Quality' of mercy : should ever be
strained so far as to allpw a nion to rule
a government which hehas endeavored
to destroy, the time tor uoing it nas not
vet arrived. To do it would bo simply to
invite the Southern people to send their
bitterest malignants, their most devoted
nd determined rebels, to represent them
Congress. Nothing can bo plainer
than that the most popular men in tne
South are those who went furthest and
did most in support of tho Confederacy.
This is proven by every election yet held
in the South. Surrounded ao these elections
have been by barriers aud safe-guards,
araed as these voters have been that their
re-admission to the Union depended ou
their display of Union sentiment, they
have always elected the" strongest ' rebel
among the candidates for their sutlriige,
They have dieted "Wade -Hampton Gov
ernor of South Carolina, and Humphries,
another rebel General, Governor of Mis
sissippi. Tho result of the Eichmond
barter election is well known. At least
half of the Congressmen elect from the
reconstructed States announce defiantly
that they cannot and will not take the test
oath, bhould it be repealed we should
have Robert E. Lice among the Senators
IroTn. Virginia, nun Pcomtgm J -..
inna. Toombs would be sent back from
Georgia to his old scat, and if tho Missis
sippians could get Jeff. Davis pardoned
would enter the halls of the benate with
as proud a step as ever, xo periiin miu
cnoourago such a result would be a flagrant
outrage not onlv upon the national secu
rity and honor but upon the true U nion
men of the South. ' "'
Tha fact that men who cannot take the
oath have persisted in running, and have
been elected, shows that this would be the
result were it repealed. We hope, there
fore, that it may be enforced in the next
Congress, and kept in force as long as the
rebellion exhibits its present spirit. When
Wade Hampton can be elected Governor
under the Union, it is evident that recon
struction is going too fust, and it is need
ful that Congress put on the brakes.
Maximilian and Juarez.
It is related of General Bragg, that,
when ordered to hold a certain point
Georgia against Sherman's advancing col
umns, and when Johnston telegraphed
him to enquire what force he had, he re
plied: "Five proclamations and one brig-
ado." Maximilliari, the ioi-disani Emperor
of Mexico,.appcars, liko Bragg, to be bet
ter furnished with proclamations than
with soldiers. Ho has just launched a ter
rible one nt the heads of the stubborn Re
publican leaders who contest his acquisi
tion of the Mexican territory with such
p-allantry and obstinacy. Believing,
assuming to bdk-ve, that Juarez, the Pres
ident of the Mexican Republic, has
from the, country, holms issued a flaming
ifestp.declaring thecontost ended,
that, thn leader of the opposition

ADAMS TO MR. RUSSELL—ENGLAND
LeOATION OF THE UNITED STATES,
London, April 7.
3It Lord: I have the honor to trans
mit to you a copy of a letter addressed to
tha Sevretarv of State at. Washincton by
the Consul of the United States at Rio
the Consul ol tne u uitea oiuies at iv
Janeiro, Mr. Monroe, making a report of
the depredations committed upon the
commerce of tho United States by the
vessel known in the port of London as
the Sea King, but since transformed into
the Shenandoah by a process already fully
exnlained in a note which I had the honor
to address to your Lordship on the 18th of
November last. "
Were there any reasons to believe tnal

the paiuful necessity of announcing to

tain amicable relations with the Govern-
mvnt which I represent.
A hile perfectly read V to Dear testimony
,o the promptness with which all the nu
merous remonstrances and representations
which it has been my paintul duty nere
tufore to submit have been met and attend
ed to bv vour Lordship, it is, at the same
time, impossible for me to dispute the fact
that the hostile policy which it Is the ob
ject of all this labor to prevent has not
nly not been cnecKea, out is even now
p-oing into execution with more and more
Mr. Adams declares that this policy
eiilisiiinfinllv din destruction of the entire
of the United
States, and that it is going oil by the co
operation of English subjects with insur
gents. He procceeds to ask if there is any
parallel case to this, of injuries done one
nation by another without the most serious
practical consequences. He acquits her
Majesty's Government of any aggressive
disposition, but insists that their measure,
however well intended, have failed to rem
edy the evil. He continues:
Prompt to acquit them of any design,
am reluctantly compelled to acknowledge
the belief that practically this evil had
origin in the first step taken, which never
can be regarded by my government than
in any other liglit than as precipitate,
acknowledging persons as a belligerent

the very country wuicn gave it tne sneitcr
of that title in advance. Neither is
whole case stated even now. . I he results
equally show that tne ability to continue
these operations with success during
whole term of the four years that the
has continued bus bccnexclusively owing
to the opportunity to make use of

courts and the ports and harbors of
very Power that furnished lhe elements

the kingdom cf Great Britain cannot
be regarded by the government I have
honor to represent as not oiuy uavuig

also as having nursed and maintained it
EARL RUSSELL'S FIRST LETTER.
Earl Russell on, May 6th, responded
great length. He begins as follows:
Allow me to observe, in the first place,
that I can never admit that tho duties
Great Britain toward the United States
are to be measured by the losses which
trade and commerce of the United States
may have sustained. The question is
what losses tho L nitcd .states have
bv the war. but whether in difficult
and extraordinary circumstances the gov
ernment of Her Majesty have performed
faithfully and honestly the duties which
international law and their own municipal
law imposed on them.
He argues tho question of belligerency
very fully, justifying the course of
Knclish rj-overnmcnt in recognizing
Ho points to tho vigilance of Her Majes
ty's government in respect to the Mersey
rams. WTith respect to the Shenandoah,
he says no evidence of her character
offered to them by Mr. Adams or any
else. Had such evidence been given,
prompt action would bave been taken.
The letter concludes as follows:
" The question then really comes to
Is Her Majesty's government to assume
or be liable to a responsibility for conduct
which Her Majesty's government did
in their powor to prevent and to punish?
a responsibility which Mr Adams,
the part of the United States government
in the case of the Portugal, positively,
firmly, and justly declined.
Have you considered to what this
" Great "Britain would become thereby
answerable for every ship that may have
left a British port and have been found
afterward used by tho Confederates as
ship-of-war ; nay, more, for every cannon
and every musket used by the Confede
rates on board any ship-of-war if manu
SECOND LETTER FROM MR. ADAMS.
Mr. AdamB' response is dated May 20th.
It makes the followtng points :
1. That the act of recognition by
Majesty's Government of insurgents
belligerents on the high seas before
had a single vessel afloat, was precipitate
and unprecedented. !
2. That it had the effect of creating
these parties belligerents after the recog
nition, instead of merely acknowledging
ah existing fact.
3. That this creation has been
effected exclusively from the ports of
Majesy's kingdom and its dependencies,
with the aid and cooperation of Her
4. That during the whole continuance
of the struggle in America, of nearly
years In duration, there has been no
of the insurgents as a belligerent
on the ocean, excepting in the shape
British vessels, . constructed, equipped,
supplied, manned and armed in British
ports. -- -- - ....
- 5. That during the same period it
been the constant and persistent endeavor
of my government to remonstrate in every
possible form ngainst tho abuse of
neutrality of this kingdom, and to
upon Her Majesty's Government to exer
cise the necessary powers to put an effec
tive stop to it.
6. That, althotio-h the desire of Her

e anetticiency oi tne iaw v i
relied, and from their absolute reiusai,
when solicited, to procure suu...oa.- r"
ers to attain the object. . .
7. That by reason ortnetauure to coeca
this flagrant abuse of neutrality, the Issue
from Untisn ports oi a numoer vi
vessels with the aid of the recognition of
their belligerent character in all the ports
of Her Majesty's dependencies round the
of property belonging to the people ofjthe
TTi, Itnii KfiLt.Pj;.
8. That, in addition to this direct injury
the action of these British-built, manned
and armed vessels has had the indirect
effect of driving from the" sea" a large por
tion of the commercial marine oi wo
United States, and to a corresponding ex
tent enlarged that of Great Britain, thus
enabling a portion of the British people
to derive and enjoy advantage from the
wrong committed on a tnenaiy nauou UJ
another person. . , .
a That the iniuries thns received by
country which has sedulously endeavored
to perform au its oDiipauoiui, umauj
the imperfection of the legal means at
hand to prevent them, as well as the un
willingness to seek for more stringent
powers, are of so grave a nature as in rea
son and justice to constitute a valid claim

Mr. Adams goes into a lengthened de
tail of facts to prove these propositions, es
of the Alubama. He
. , . . tji
then argue, the precedent a leged by Earl
Russell to have been established by the
United States during the revolution of the
South American Stares against Spain and
Portugal, showing that it does not apply
to tbe present case. He again refers to
the extraordinary decrease of American
shipping, and concludes as follows:
Thus it is that whatever may be tne line
ment 1 pursue, I am compelled to
bu .1 . .i... .u
return ever to the one conclusion : that the
nation that recognizes a Power as a bel
ligerent ffor it had built a vessel, and be
came itself the support of all the belliger
ent character it has ever possessed ott the
ocean, must be regarded as responsioie tor
all the damage that has resulted from that
cause to the commerce ot a power wiin
which it was under the most solemn obli
gations to preserve amity and peace.
EARL RUSSEL'S RESPONSE—HE DECLINES
ARBITRATION AND PROPOSES A COMMISSION.
SION. : .
On the 30th of August Earl so
in ah elaborate reply, stating that it had
been purposely delayed, but that now, the
United States being at peace, and "Mc.
Seward recovered from the injuries he
received from an accident and tho wounds
inflicted by Aft assassin, . and, horefor,

Whether her Majesty s lovernment nave
tae state ol a lncnoiy aa

tion, and whether they have correctly ap-
Slied the law of nations in respect to thair
uties toward that friendly nation."
Ha lays down the following proposi
1. That the insurrection had no paral

2. That while in the spring oi ioi,
Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a blockade.
and Jefferson Davis issued letters

val forces on our coast asked for instruc

majesty's government put that neutrality

5. That the Foreirra Enlistment act

6. That the owners of the Alabama suc

7. That the Oreto was begun to

8. That the rams were seized at Birken

forced to take refuge in Calais.
9. That it is not enough to say that

been amended, unless it be shown that
amendments would have been efficient.
10. That only the most extensive

1 1. That the Shenandoah was dispatched
to other waters, and there made an armed

After arguing these points at
length he concludes as follows :
In your lotter of the 23d of October,
1863, you were pleased to say that
government of the United States is
to airree to anv form of arbitration.
Her Majesty's government has
been led to consider wbat question
be put to any sovereign or State to whom
this very great power should be assigned.
It appears to her Majesty's government
that there are but two questions by which
the claim of compensation could be tested.
The one is: Have the British government
acted with due diligence, or, in
words, with good faith and honesty, in
maintenance of the neutrality they
The other is: Have the
officers of the crown properly understood
the Foreign Enlistment act when they
in June, 1862, to advise the deten
tion and seizure of the Alabama, and
other occasions when they were asked
detain other ships building or fitting
It appears to her Majesty's government
that neither of these gueetion could be
to a foreign government with any regard
tte dignity and character of the Jiriiish
crown and the British nation.
Her Majesty's government are the
guardians of their own honor. They
admit that they may have acted
bad faith in maintaining the neutrality
they professed. The law officers of
crown must be held to be better interpre
ters of a British statute than any foreign
government can be presumed to be.
Majesty's government must, therefore,
either to make reparation and
pensation for the captures made by
Alabama, or to rejer me qucsiwn io any

endanger the position of neutrals in all
Her Majesty's government are, however,
ready io consent to the appointment of
commission, to which will be referred
claims arising during the late civil
which Vie two Powers shall agree to
to the commissioners.
I cannot conclude without taking
opportunity to ask you to join with
Majesty's government in rejoicing that
war has ended without any rupture
two nations which ought to be
by tha closest bonds of amity.
Hot is there any question in dispute
seems likely to disturb the friendship of
nations, which, the one in Europe and
other in America, are distinguished
their love of liberty. Let our two nations,
therefore, instead of captious discussions,
respect the honor and believe in the friendly
intentions of each other. In this manner
we may preserve unbroken the ties
peace, and exercise a beneficial influence
on the future destinies of the nations
NO. V. MR. ADAMS HAS THE LAST WORD—THE
ENGLISH PROPOSITION LIKELY TO
The last letter of the series is by Mr.
Adams, and bears date, September 18th.
Mr. Adams begins by reciprocating Lord
Russell's courtesies as to the friendly feel
ing with which the negotiations have been
conducted, and claims ior his Government
that H has been actuated by amicable in
tentions. By acknowledging the friendly
intentions of Her Majesty's Government,
however, he 6 not wish it to bo under
stood that hehas always approved of the
manner ir which those intentions have
been eawied into practice. Nor do the
questio'9 at issue lose much of their grav
c fom anv disavowal of ill-will on the
use. the follcrmng forcible language:

t SSStS .action at least until something
SJVav. r-n RcftHllv done to require
t I..- .hi was nocertaintv
it. In this ins'ance mere was uouauauvj
at the time when her Majesty s govern
ment acted that either of those declara
tions of intention would be fulfilled. The
result proves that one of them, in point
f fact, never was executed. Neither is it
at all beyond the possibility of belief that
the other Would have been left equally in
complete but for thi tery action of her
Ma'ieatv aovernmcnt vhich precluded all
.chance of aeoiding having recourse toil.
IliH actual blocKaoe, men, "
being a cause, became actually an inev
itable consequence of it
He again defends the course of this
country in the war between Spain and
her Spanish colonies, and re-asserts his state
ment that the recognition of the belligeren
cy of the South was the origin of all sub
sequent difficulties and ill-feeling. He al
ludes to the important bearing of the dis
cussion Upon the commerce of future bel-
ligerehts, significantly pointing out the
fact that England itself would be the
loser if its position were successful.
this poitlt lie says i
" For if it be fairly once established as
a principle of the international code, that
a neutral Power is the sole Judge of the
degree to which it has done its duty under
a code of its own making, for the preven
tion of gross and flagrant outrages, limited
in its own ports by the agent of one bel
ligerent in co-operation With numbers of
its own subjects, ana perpeiraieu upon uie
commerce of others on the high seas; if it
be conceded that the neutral, upon recla
mation made for the injuries thus done by
reason of the manifest inefficacy of its
means of rfcprtssion, which It has At all
times the power to improve at will, can
deliberately decline to respond to ahy such
appeal, fall back upon the little that it has
attempted as an excuse, and thencetorward
claim, with justice, to be released from the
inevitable consequences that must ensue
from its ihactioti, then il miist surely fol
low that the only competition between
neutral Powers hereafter will be, not which
shall do the most, but which sh-U do the
least to fulfill its obligations of interdic
tion of the industry ajld enterprise of its
people in promoting the conhicts that take
place Detween tne oeingereuui u tuo
ocean. If this be once recognized as good
law through the authority wnirh the pow
erful influence of Her Majesty's Govern
ment can attach to it, I dare not venture
to foresee how much reluctance there may
be on tbe part of the people whom I have
the honor to represent td accept and act
upon it. Hitherto a want of eagerness
the part of the most adventurous and least
scrupulous portion of them to promote en
terprise on behalf of any belligerent that
promised personal advantage cannot
charged upon them. The reference made
bv your lordship to the case of Spain and
Portugal must have convinced vou of this
truth. The prospect of impunity in such
enterprises is all that is needed. Further
than this, I might only venture to suggest
to your lordship to consider which of
nations of the world presents on every
around the globe the most tempting prizes
in an event no friend would more deplore
than myself, of its being again, as it has
often been heretofore, doomed to be afflict
ed by the ChlamltiM of a war."
Mr. Adams next points out that
cases spoken of by Earl Russell as prov
ing that the English law is sufficient, were
just those in which the government went
outside of the law. . lie expresses nis sur
prise, not to say astonishment, at the
that biuisBGreat Britain
already passed a law as stringent
effective as that of the United States,
is therefore justified in declining any
to go on amending it. The two
are, however, very much alike. The Brit
ish law omits the "sections which were
enacted by tho United States
1817, as a temporary law, on thecomplaint
of the Portuguese Minister, and were
permanent in 1818." Mr. Adams
" It is in tlieso very seetions that our
has shown us to reside the
preventative force in the whole law."
they had been in the British law he thinks
that much of what complaint is
could not have happened, and he does
think his Government can be blamed
wishing to see the reciprocal legislation
this respect more complete.
Mr. Adams' letter concludes as follows:
But if tho example thus set by
Majesty government should come to
generally adopted, and the principles
neutrality upon which it rests be recog
nized as a part of the code of international
law, then it is .not difficult to foresee
probable consequence. A new em in
relations of neutrals to belligerents on
high seas will open. Neutral ports
that event will before long become
true centres from which the most effective
and dangerous enterprises against
commerce of belligerents may be
fitted out and executed. The
restrictions upon the exploits
daring adventurers will rapidly become
obsolete, and no new ones will be adopted.
Ships, men and money will always be
hand for the service of any Power
strong to hold forth a probability
of repayment in any form, or
enough to secure a share of the popular
sympathy in its undertakings.
Floridas, Alabamas and Shenandoahs
appear on every sea. If such be the
law, will not undertake to
that the country which J hate the honor
represent would not in the end be as able
accommodate itself to the new circumstances
as Great Britain.
Understanding her Majesty's Govern
ment to decline theproposal of arbitration,
which I had the honor, under instructions,
to present, in any form, for reasons assign
ed by your lordship, 1 nevertheless
happy to be informed that "her Majesty's
Government are ready to consent to
appointment of a commission, to
shall be referred all claims arising during
the late civil war, which the two powers
shall agree to refer to the commissioners."
I have taken measures to make known,
at the earliest moment, this proposal to
Government, and shall ask permission
await the return of instructions befc re
a reply. '
Disclaiming all authority to express
advance any opinion on the part of
Government, I pray at the same time
lordship's attention to a single circum
stance which, without a previous
upon the great principles of
law involved in this controversy,
may raise a difficulty in the way of
the proposal At a first glance
would appear as if it were in substance
indentically the same with that long
made by the Portuguese Government
that of the United States. The essence
the answer returned in that case happens
to bave lately passed under your eye,
it is found incorporated in your lordship's

If, from painful observation in a
extended through four years, I cannot

the process of so wonderful a revolution,

Correspondence of the Cleveland LEADER.]
SANDUSKY, OHIO, October 14, 1865.
How many so-called County Fairs have
.nn and T. and all of us. attended in our
time, which so far from being a pleasure
to the visitors were positive bores, and so
far from being creditable to their respec
tive location, were totally destitute of
value from the meacreness of their exhi
bitions and the apathy of the peoplO In re-
I spect to sustaining thcin. I arh glad to re
I corf an exception to this too general rule
to be able tb give Eriel county, Ohio, the
credit of havitig jut closed a Fair that
was both well attended and gcnorously
sustained. The display iri all respects was
good, tut particularly so in the grapes
and wines , the staples of this region. 1 n
exhibition of crapes was truly uiagiuncotr
and received the hearty encomiums of
those-who had come fironl all over the
country for the express purpose of attend,
ing the exhibition and comparing notes
unonp-rane culture and wine manufac-
ture, the county Fair being consolidated
for eihibltion purpose wun tne .noriu-
ern Ohio Grape Growers Association
The staple varieties of grapes grown here
are the Catawbas and the Isabellas, al
though the culture is by no means con
fined Id these, as may be known when I
state that one exhibitor had over eighty
varieties of grapes upon the tables, while
ofliors exhibited thirty and forty varieties
.nrh. The extent of the grape culture in
this region is something wonderful consid
ering its recent growth, and I proposo to
give you some facts regarding this. , -'
TcVeimohtlttn- with irrapes commenced
here about fifteen years ago, but the busi
ness, as a business, dates from about eight
years aao. In that time so much prog
has been made .that there are now
over five hundred acres in vineyards
.,., tho lon.la in this portiori of Lake
TT-Itt anil unnn the La ke shore within a
distance of three miles from Sandnsky
The warming influence of the water keeps
tha frost away until long after it has nip
ped the vines in 8outhern Ohio, so that
while the vintage of the Ohio river grapes
closes with the month of September, it is
here just commencing and will last into
November. Messrs. Smith and Parsons,
who are among the present growers and
manufacturers of wine, will commence
picking their Isabellas on the 25th instant,
and the CataWbas a weeK later, x am
debted to Mr. Parsons for many statistics
and facts of interest regarding the grape
trade, and it is worth ones' while to walk
through the wine collars of this firm and
ih.h whom in a lone successionof cask.'.
holding from 500 to 600 each, is stored
the rich, red and pure juice of the grape.
Of tha five hundred and thirty odd
of cranes hereabouts, one gentleman
has a vineyard of sixty-two acres, while
others vary from the modest plot of a
sinirle acre to those of thirty and forty
acres. The average yield of grapes is two
(2) tons to the acre, yielding a net profit
over and above expenses of about $280
per acre, which should satisfy the most
usurious land-holder. Of this production
of one thousand tons and over, it
i . ttimatl that one third arc
used for table use, leaving about seven
hundred (7001 tons for wine. Allowine
twolvp pounds of irrapes for a gallon of
wine, this would cive nearly one hundred
and seventeen thousand- gallons of wine
from this rcprion. or about two thousand
nine hundred barrels. A large part of
this,,howevcr, is manufactured abroad, tne
grapes being purchased and shipped U
Cleveland, tjiuctimaii, wt. -ijoma an-,
pressed there. The price of Isabellas and
Pntawbas is now about five and seven
cents repctivelv,and itisexpected that this
price will be reduced to three and ti ve cents
in a few days, these being wholesale prices
of course. "Heretofore the producers have
generally sold the grapes irom me vines,
but many of them are ailoptintr improved

into use to ecouomize and facilitate the
wine manufacture. Among others is an
apparatus which I saw in operation at
Hosmer's for separating the grapes from
the stems, which it does cleanly and
thoroup-hlv. In spite of the increased
home manufacture, however, the express
companies are shipping an average of six
tons of cranes per day.
The grape trade of this country is yet
in its infanoy, notwithstanding these largo
figures. But it has already done a good
work for Sandusky. Land which ten
years ago could be purchased for $50 or
$60 per acre, are now hard to get at from
$000 to $800, and each coming year will
aoo a Inrn-nr increase of the vineyard.
But grapes are not Sandusky's sole
dependence. Her fish trado is im
mense and constantly growing.
The amount of white fish, muscas
longe, black bass and pickeral which is
ved andshioned from here is immense.
The shipments last year amounted to over
sinn m i nnn tnis year tvui ue uno-n
larger. Stretching from island to island,
until thev nearly form a net work across
the lake, are the "pounds" of the fisher
men, which consist of an encircling row
of stakes driven into tho bottom of the
lake, forming traps into which the un
wary fish, once beguiled, can never escape
until they are hauled to the surface and
tumbled, w.th many a contortion and
flounder, into tho hold of the boats which
make daily visits to their respective fish
ing grounds. Un reaching tne snore ine
fish are packed into barrels, each of which
has a large "chunk" of ice, the barrel is
headed up and tho express car taKcs tnein
while yet cold and fresh, all through Ohio
and Indiana. Years ago,before the fisherman
had so widely extended forth his nets and
his business, the standard price for white
fish was "three lor a quarter (tne n.n
weicrhing from four to six pounds) and
take your choice for the pile. But now,
when vou go to buy you your
Friday's dinner or Sunday's breakfast,
vou must pay ten cents a pound. Tho
business is extremely profitable, and in
stances are pointed out of individuals now
worth their hundreds of thousands who
few years ago labored by the day. Is this
a revival of the "Codfish Aristocracy?"
Sandusky has many natural advantages,
chief among which is its magnificent bay
and harbor, where the navies of the world
niin-ht ride at anchor. 1 ne city was nand-
