Life is earnest !" And the man who hopes to rise To success in any calling, Most expect to advertise. "In the world's broad field of battle, In the conflict of real life," Advertising is the secret Of achievement in the strife, "Lives of rich men all remind us, We can make our own sublime;" And by libersl advertising To the highest summit climb. "Let us then be up and doing," In the Review our ads insert ; "Still achieving, still pursuing," Business then will be alert, -Spokane Falls Review. MORMON RANTINGS. Salt Lake City, Utah, Oct. 6. —To day was the second day of the Mormon fall conference. Apostle Grant called loudly for tithings, saying those who paid freely were the most happy and prosperous ; declared the saints must live up to the whole law of God. A. B. Morgan called for the education of Mormon children in schools where they can learn that Joseph Smith was a prophet. Apostacy was not so much because of infidelity as ignorance of the true principles of the Gospel. Apostle Richards declared that the Baints must live for the Lord and educate her ohildren in the faith. It is the duty of the priesthood to look after this, but it is not done. We must promoto the young men to look after this, Elder Nobel thanked God that be had seen old scenes. WE MUST BE UNITED and carry ont the principles of the gospel, educate our children properly and no power no earth can prevail against us. A. P. Cannon, a "penitentiary martyr," said : He had seen the place whence the saint had been driven ; these places had * been cuned of God and are unfit for the habitation of men. It is not crawling to accept martyrdom from unjuat bands, which is only a test of our faith. The kingdom of God is now established, never to go down. A HITHERTO UNPUBLISHED LETTER. Bust ,-n Letter to the Now York Tribune! The letter which has never been published, is as follows: BnooKLYN, Nov. S), 1S72.—My Dear Mr. Greeley: I read your card in the Tribune with sincere pleasure, and congratulate myself aud the cause of journalism vm your return to a field in which you have won so much reputation and where you have done such service that the history of Ameriea cannot be written without including, as an im portant part of it, your life and services. You may think, amidst clouds of smoke and dust, that all your old friends who parted company with you in the late campaign will turn a momentary difference into a lifelong alienation. It will uot be so. I speak for myself, and also from what I perceive in other men's hearts. Your mere political influence may for a time be impaired, but your own power for good in the far wider fields of indusrial economy, social and civil criticism, and the general well being of society, will not he lessened, but augmented. It is true that hitherto the times called for a warrior, and such you were ; yet I cannot but think with regret how much ability has beeu spent by you that died with the occasion, and which might have built up positive and permanent elements. But I look upon your years to come as likely to be more fruitful and irradiated with a kind and bénéficient fight, which will leave your name in honor far greater than if you had reached the highest office, I beg that you will pardon my intru sion, especially when you stand in the shadow of a great trouble. I hoped that a word of honest respect and sympathy might not displease you. There are thousands who would like to do aa I have done, and who with me will rejoice onee more to be in sympathy with you in all thiega bénéficient and patriot». I am, my dear Mr. Greeley, very trnly yours. (signed) Henry Ward Beecher. JUDGE GREENE S OPINION. Roger S. Greene, cz-chicf justice of Washington Territory, in answer to the question if he was in favor of the annex ation of North Idaho to Washington, said: "Geographically, the Pan handle of Idaho belongs to the state of Wash ington and the boundaries of the state should include it, if consistent with the wishes of the people." The people of North Idaho are glad to have a man of Judge Greene's intel ligence and large observation of thiegs on this northwest coast, and long resi dence in Washington Territory, whose integrity of purpose and honest opinions no man has ever questioned or dare to questiuD, so out-spoken upon the question of annexation, upou a question of so much importance to the people of North Idaho. It puts iu the shade all the misrepresentations of facts which have over been made in South Idaho by politicians and the people there since the agitation of the question in 1864 and 1865. Is it any wonder that the majority of the people of North Idaho and Washington should desire this annexation ? Pullman is one of tho best business towns in Eastern Washington. The peculiarity of tho place is that while its area is small its business is large and constantly increasing. Its founders, in an early day, wisely procured good wagon roads to it from all the sections round about. The result is that as soon as the railroads opened an outlet to their products, the farmers used ihe road to bring their grain to this common center. To day instead of haring a town scat tered and disconnected, it is like a bee hive, full of life and animation.— Review. Willis Sweet, though billed to appear in the combination on Saturday night, was not here. He was so busy up North trying to reconcile those people with the action of Dubois that he could not leave. His non appearance was a disappoint ment, for we all wanted to hear the crack talker of the Duboisites.— Democrat. PottsVILLE, Pa., Oct. 10.— Inform ation [reached thisj^city to night of a tcrrible'accident'Jwhichjocrurr il on the Lehigh Valley railroad, at Mud Run, tho first station above Penn Haven. A grand parade of Catholic societies took place at llazeltou to day, and a largo excursion was rnn from Wilktabarre for the occasion, composed of lodges, bands, and sight-seers from Wiikesbarrc, Nanticoke, and other poiuts along 'the fine. The excursion train was run in two sections, end upon their return trip to-night the rear section ran into the forward section at Mud Run, about nine o'clock, with disastrous results. Several cars of the forward section were teles coped, and forty persons were killed outright and about an equal number injured, many of them probably fatally. The late hour at which the accident occurred, the remote and isolated locality of the scene, and the reticence of the railroad people, combine to tender the obtainment of details extremely difficult. It is impossible to ascertain the names or residences of any of the victims, hut their uumber is stated above with ap proximate accuracy. FRIGHTFUL DISASTER OR THE LEHIGH VALLEY RAILROAD. The Wheat Maiket. New York, Oct. 10.—On the wheat market Ihe Mail and Erpress says : The feeling before the opening was that wheat was geing to 31 straight. The first sale after the gong sounded was 31 lli[for[December, 'a break of 2|e and the next 31 10i. The bears were after stop orders, [and caught some, but were caught themselves. The old bull clique bad orders in the market to tuke all tho wheat offering, and sent out numerous [bully points. The firm baud of the bulls and the bull points soon caused a vigorous rush to cover. The market was bare of wheat, and prices advanced 4 to 4fc before 1 P. M., with the old Chicago k Northwestern clique still in oontrol, breaking rapidly toward the dose. Flooa and Destruction in China. From advices by tho Belgic thi following is gleaned : Disastrous floods oo curredin the province of Moukden, abou 35() miles northeast of Pekin, bringing with it the immediate death of huudrodi of inhabitants and utter annihilation t< very muny homes, destruction of cropi and the prospects of u general tamiuo iu tho coming winter. The cholera is stil raging at Hong Kong, The daily aver age of new cases is from forty to fifty A stprui on the 30th of August a Notogan, Japan, caused the followin| damage : Number of houses damage« or half destroyed, 8,000 ; vessels totall; lost!, 85 ; vessels wrecked, 500 ; numbe of persons wounded, injured and receiv ing public assistance, 02,000. Th whole of the new embankment of thi Ye low river at Chang Chow, began las autumn, and carried on at the cost o ovc) £:),(!00,000, has been completel swept away by the flood. Of the 8,001 lineal teet of river wall recently com pleted not one inch remains and watet are pouring through the immense gaj into Ilonau unchecked. From 800 ti 1,000 laborers, who were on the bank were drowned. The FaolUo Rond«. Washington, Oct. 6. — General Joseph E. Johnson, commissioner or ' railroads, in his annual report to tho secretary of the interior, states that the, railroads south of the Uuion and Central Pacific and east of California have been inspected during the year by Hassard, engineer of tho office. Tho commissioner iusppcted the Union aud Ceutral Pacifie, und all roads in California and Oregoa connected with the latter and thomla Washington Territory. "These roads," the commissioner adds, "are all in « very satisfactory condition.- They were wall built originally and have been kept la excellent order sino*. Steel rails have b in substituted for iron almost mn when. Tacoma is receiving a large portion at the vfheat raised in Eastern Washington , 1 much larger than «ver Mm.
