ri'ItCIIASE OF THE RUSSIAN
Thcro haj been a good deal of complaint
in certain quarter! with oar Government on
account of Its parchaso of tho Russian
Possessions. We have defended from time
to timo this treaty, which conveys to us
Alaska, because, In our judgment, the
purchase was clearly defensible, and be
cause it was In point or fact, and on many
grounds, Important to ns to hold this do
minion. It has been said that the Czar
was right glad to be rid of a territory that
was nothing but a bill or expense to him
and to his people, and that It yielded no
adequate return for the outlay In its be
half, which amounted to a burden noth
ing more. The Russian people, It has been
said, chuckled in their sleeves at the idea
that, In this instance, they hare nitwitted
the Yankee, with all his accustomed
shrewdness. By this treaty they had rid
themselves of a cold, unprofitable coun
try, which produced nothing valuable ex
cept a few furs, and they were compara
tively of no account, inasmuch as their
cost was such that only a trifling profit
was realized upon them in any single
j car. Why should they not accept eight
or ten millions of dollars hard money
and thus rid themselves of what was a
It is very easy to decry a measure of
this sort, and to appeal to the prejudices
of this people against it. Prejudice is one
thing; facts and benefits arc quite another
thug; and after a little, when prejudice
shall have worn away, and practical re
sults shotting the benefits and advantages
of this purchase to us as a nation, the won
der will then be that anybody should ever
have opposed it.
lint the question returns, why did Rus
sia sell and why is the Czar and his home
subjects glad to get this territory off of
their hands ? It is supposed that these
questions settle the mooted point in the
controversy, and that if Russia was triad
to free itself of this incumbrance, it was
no evidence of wisdom or wise statesman
ship on our part to pay a large sum of
money for what was of little or no value
to them Now, suppose wc admit that it
was to the advantage of Russia to sell
this dominion, and of course they so be
lieved or they would not have made the
conveyance, what, then, docs it follow
that in our possession Alaska may not be
made valuable to the United States t '1 he
abo c reasoning is absurd. Under the ope
ration of the laws of exchange and of trade
we have daily demonstrations that what in
tho hands of one party is comparatively
of little worth often turns out to be in
other hands a most valuable acqulsiton.
But,this is tho stand-point frcra which
some of our journalists and people look
upon this purchase. Let us see how the
Russians view it. They do not seem to
think that there has been any overreaching
In this transaction on either side. They
regard it as a fair trade, and one that
lias its reciprocal advantages, from which
each party will derive its duo share. The

qnote ns follows. The Journal s-us
"That in looking at the matter some at
tention is to be given to ulterior conse
quences. Considering the matter in all
respects this paper says it is a transaction
of reciprocal advantage, which will proba
bly result in aprontable reaction upon the
commerce of our (Russian) ports in East
ern Siberia, In giving a new value to pos
sessions which we have not been able to
develop according to their worth, and,
finally, in assuring protection and ample
satisfaction to the commercial and politi
cal interests of the two contracting patties
in tho Pacific Ocean."
Here, then, in our judgment we have a
precise statement in respect to the advan
tages which are to flow to both parties to
One single remark more, and wc con
clude this already too lengthy article.
While this country was under the domina
tion of the Russian Government emigra
tion would not flow there. Under our rule
it vwll be quite different. Tho tido of eml
gration is tending hitherward in a resistless
wave, and there is no point or pait of our
vast domain that will not be penetrated by
our own piople, and by the hardy, bold,
and experienced explorer and pioneer of
the Old World who shall come among us.

has its rights as well as labor, and aro
willing to concede to it all that it is enti

Committees have been appointed on
sending a delegate to Europe; on tho
subject of taxation of United States bonds
and uncultivated lands; on the disposition
of the public domain; on sanitary meas

and on political measures, but no reports
have been made'.
A motion was made by Mr. Keibs to
throw to the breeze a banner inscribed
with the name of tho "National La
bor Reform Union of the United
States." Ills constituents in Pennsyl
vania had instructed him to work to this
end in this Congress. Several gentlemen
doubled tbe wisdom of taking a political
step, and some expressed their astonish
ment at tho attempt' to induce such a
step. The motion, sprang upon tbo Con
gress, has caused great excitement, and
may occasion a very stormy timo when it
comes un for final action. Nearly tho
nhole of to-day has been devoted to dis

CiitcixiAti. Aug. 20. 10 o'clock p. m.
Hon. Ben. Wade made his first speech of
tne campaign at Marietta csteruay. it
was ono of his old-fashioned orations, and
ho did not introduce any of his Kansas
eccentricities, no said tnat lor thirty
years be had advocated the rights of all
men. without regard ta race, color and
condition, and that was still the burden of
his argument. lie declared that A allan
dlghnm's doctrines are In all respect frien
ncai witn tnose oi too uemocratic party
in Ohio. Negro suffrage, he argued, is
tbe Icgitim'.: result of republican prin
ciples, and tho terms for reconstruction
ouereu tno soutu are coin just and gen
erous. Senator John Sherman also made his
first speech of tho campaign at Canton
lie aavocatea tno negro suiirage amend
ment. A large portion of his argument
was devoted to a defence of our national
financial sj stem. Our national banks he
thinks a great public blessing, and ho ex
plained and supported tho present system
of taxation. lie said the failure to col
lect the whiskey tax is tho ono great blot
on our method of taxation.

Weioiiuville, 1'a., Aug. '22 'Iho rain
storm last night was one of great severity
la this section. An Immense volume of
water fell. Bridges and culverts aro swept
away on the Northern Central Railroad,
and communication between Baltimore
and Ilarrisburg cut o(T.
In the town of York the cellars on ele
vated points aro filled. The streams are
much higher than for years before.
The Susquehanna canal is broken, and
business entirely stopped. Last night's
storm completed tho work begun last
week by sweeping away culverts and em
bankments then somewhat injured.
'1 he corn crop has sustained no serious
injury, however, thus far.
Tho storm appears to have tended south
ward, as very littlo rain Is reported to
have fallen above at Ilarrisburg and Mid.
Thcro is every prospect of a continuance
of tlm rain in Lancaster county. Trains
on tho Pennsylvania railroad are Impeded
on ascount of damigesto culverts. Work
men aro repairing damages.
