Placer Digging!— Miners' Misery—The Pah-TJtes—Snowed In—Results of the Expedition. Prom Our Own Correspond'mt. Windsor Castle, Utah Territory. OnthelGthof February, we broke camp on Kanab Creek, and moved to the NAVAJO WELL. This water-station was first known to the whites last summer. The train that met ns at “ Crossing of tbe Fathers” passed this way, and someNavajos were seen encamped about. The well is only eight feet deep by four across, fed by a sulphur-spring, bnt is of value to travellers over the desert. As our animals could not jump in, like the goat in the fable, we watered them from the bread pan. We have all the conveniences, bnt not the style, of fashionable watering-places. On Feh. 23, onr party, numbering ten, started for the “Buckskin Range” (Kaibab Plateau). I rode a mule called “ Sis,” an old campaigner,—intelligent, active, sure-footed. Behold ns! OUR CORRESPONDENT. Man of medium height; thick-set; erect; bronzed; bearded; ferocious mustache : suit of gray; broad-brimmed hat; huge Mexican spurs, with tinkling bells attached. In general appearance, a cross between a highwayman and a missionary. Across the saddle a rifle swings; canteen and revolver balance on either side. Carrying this har den is a mouse-colored mule, with Titanic ears, dark and rolling eye, scorn flashing from nostrils. Although it has a curb bit in its month the beast brays like the dismal gasping of a dozen disordered suction pumps in dry weather. A hundred such voices would take the dilapidated linen from the shrubbery of any Jubilee that Gilmore has yet'dreamed of. PACK-TRAINS present much of the picturesque to our ob server. Winding a single file, the divers colored animals, some mounted, others led, and many heavily laden, follow a leader, whose unerring judgment must find water at least once a day, and whose observant eye must ever keep the surest trail. Now, the cavalcade is lost to view in a gulch; then, they climb a cliff; again, a halt is ordered for readjustment of packs. Suddenly, a panic sets all in com motion. A vicious mule has bolted, stam peding the herds. Off they scurry, with .drivers in angry chase; pots and pans mu sical, and way freight promiscuously dis tributed. At last, an occasional gleam from canteen or rifle, and a cloud-of dust, are all tbat mark tbe progress of the tram. Captain Dodds generally takts the advance, as he knows tbe country well. He was in charge of the Base-Line. While absent, one dav, his camp was robbed. A Winchester rifle was most missed; it was one of the lot brought down on the rough river voyage last year. The persevering, approriator sub sequently made a descent on Professor Thompson's tent, and took some cartridges. We trust the hero of the rifle is happy now. At evening, we camped at a sulphur spring on the plateau, in a grove of cedars.. Pushed forward next morning in a blinding snow storm, to steward’s ranche, which consists of two deserted cabins and a octroi. In front of the huts, a large spring falls fiom the cliff over a tains of limestone, 200 feet m height. The scream, pouring over the friable rock, has deposited upon its mar gins a thick ernse of carbonate of lime; these snowy ridges have parted tbe waters. Soon after onr arrival, yonug Steward drove up a hand of horses, returning immediately to Kanab. “Prof.” pitched a tent, four of the boys another, and the rise put some boards over the roofless house, and took possession in tbe name gof common humanity. Suow fell steadily, and soon we were SNOW- BOCND in a cheerless waste. Showering from above, sitting through tbe chinks, drifting about our dwelling, the white deluge envelops us, and all heartily wish to be “out of the wil derness.” After the storm, found the stock scattered, requiring several days to collect again. I obtained sum© caarmiug suov- Bcapes. Rounded p*aks, heavily wo»ded, covered with snow, rise above ns. Giant pines and cedars hem round the little valley, PINE FOKEST3. Straight, symmetrical, these royal trees, clfa.d’in ermine and emerald, rise to a height of 200 feet, and often 250 feet. There is pine enough upon the plateau of this region to fence all the country west of the Kockys. Thompson will embody in his report stalls* tios concerning the value andextentof these evergreen forests. Ic is thought tbe South ern Pacific Railroad will tap this Territory of its minerals and inmber. O wing to the storm’s delays, we were running short of supplies, and a man was despatched to Ka nab for freth stores. This plateau is chan nelled by Steward's and Kanab Canons; the valley we are now in connects the two. Dodds and Jones went in search of some way from the plateau to the Colorado, to con tinue topographical work. In each monu ment put up. a tin case is deposited!, contain ing date, and name of builder. Some of ns went on a deer hunt; tracks mn in all di rections. but we had no time to stalk the wary fellows. The mound-builders returned, driven hack by the snows, which lay ten feet deep in places, rendering travel dangerous, and dif ficult. VARIED VIEWS On tlie 3d of March 1 started out, with Assistant Jolly Jack, to take views. The picture-writing in Moguls Canon was copied by the pencil-sketches. These pictures seem to be heraldic history. For Instance, there will be the figure of a Chief, followed by representations of a mountain sheep, taran tula, lightning clouds, serpent.— The sacred symbol, and the epic song. Unknown the character, forgot the tongue. A common and curious freak of Nature is to tet an immense boulder on a slender stem of shale: a sort of Atlas lifting a globe. It is marvellous how these mushrooms retain their positions. As we journey through the Talleys, we find the grass growing green, the nightshade in bloom, willows and cotton woods budding. In strange contrast, sno v cxowned mountains tower above, and lesser peaks are seen, with glittering crests. Climbing np a ridge, we will leave a shower of rain to find snow dying in onr faces. We depend freqneutly on water pockets to quench thirst. Some are large, holding many thousand gallons; others are wide and shallow, exhaling more vile odors than the City of Cologne. The deeper ones (and the smells) last the year round. Having got the country ‘‘packed” np, we returned. Met a party of miners, with picks and shovels, “ grub ” and rockers. Arrived at PIPE SPRINGS March 11. This is a place of importance. It is 20 miles west of Kanab. The spring gushes from a did of red sandstone, and spreads ont over a bottom in quite a stream, affording excellent pasturage. The follow* ing legend accounts for the name: A com pany of hunters and. trappers, resting here, amused themselves by bring at a mark. Some wild shots being made, one of the men stuck np his pipe near the water, thinking it perfectly safe. The sharp-shooters blazed away, and the pipe was shattered in frag ments. Pipe Springs has figured conspicu ously ih frontier annals. EARLY HISTORY. This barren wilderness ot rock and sand offered few inducements and little protec tion to the emigrant. Forts, posts, soldiers, and even stage-station* were few and re mote. There are now no old settlers, daily papers, Dolly Vardans, or other luxuries. Mormon people, however, are persevering, and Moimon leaders sagacious. Colonies have lodged along all the mountain-streams, and in every green valley; taking root, like the pine and willow, wherever moisture would nourish and soil mnport. So due a paatuiage as that of Pipe Spiicgs was speedily used as grazing gionnd for herds of cattle, sheep,and hoises. In 1805 Whitmore owned the ranche, living in a stone hut with his sou and two hired men. A band of Indians surrounded the premises, drove off the flocks, and killed the white men who rushed out to the rescue. Still later, an In dian surprise was eflVcred, and 600 sheep ta ken. The savages satisfied themselves with sticking the door fail of arrows, and burn ing the corral. The ranchemen, more pru dent than the first owners, did not show them selves, and were savt-d. \ THE NAVAJO INDIANS, living in Arizona, some 200 miles distant, oc cupied the time, when not fighting other tribes, in raiding over the river to plunder the whites. They forced the cowardly Pah- Utestolead them where settlers* stock was herding; then, in trne Indian style, the Nav ajos would suddenly emerge from behind some rock or cliff, seize their, booty, and be off in a iiffy. The Mormons, getting intelli gence from scouts and sentinels, would promptly arm and mount; and an exciting chase for the river began. As the Colorado is only fordable at “Crossing of the Fath ers and month of Pahria, the pursuers and pursued dashed at utmost, speed for one or Doth of those point?. Moving along parallel routes, the sheep-stealers and sheep-owners often arrived at the fords abont the same time. The accute savages gen erally managed to skirmish and cause delays, nctil the plunder was safe onthefatrher shore; the warriors then re treated. In this way a few dead Navsjos were exchanged fora good many live horses* It, is hard enough, and bad enough, to live unmolested on the desert, but, when one is obliged to receive visitors at so moch ex pense, and with so great display, the amuse ment grows stale. The frontiersmen, un- daunted, kept a sharp look out, learned the trails better, and perfected means of defense. At first alarm, they were at the heels of the Arizona Arabs, better armed, and equal in numbers. The battles then waxed notter. The “ reds ” were eeverly punished: as the phrase go*s, “they salted a good many Irjins,” Finally a fort was built and gim eon maintained at the crossing, and a treaty of peace concluded. Pipe Spring* was often the theatre of war. President Young and Bishop Windsor seonrfd th© peace. Under the supervision of the latter, a large stone structure was projected, andisnow building, at considerable copt. WINDSOR CASTLE, as w© call it, is lospholed for musketry, and is used as a ranche, dairy, and fort. It is on the direct trail leading from the Indian country to the settlement, and forms a strat egic point the Navujos or Apaches will find difficult to mrn. We are encamped in one of tbe stone Looses within the fortification, and enjoy hugely those rarities to the cam paigner,—fresh milk and good batter. Eleven thousand sheep, 500 cattle, and some horses are kept here. Wear© indebted to the Bishop for many favors ; he is a genial host. Rest ing from onr labor*, the younger and unmar ried memheis of the party wander pensively about, singing, to slow music, strictly original and soothing strains about Hurrying a rich Smorlta, Living on a ranobeln toe West, BzcoMtg tbe light clgarita, Taking our ease, and having the best. Daring the day, weather is warm. The nights are cold, on account of the nearness t f the mountains. To the southwest. Mount Trumbull shows its wooded crest, 30 miles away. The foliage of the pines looks bine in the distance. Back of us the Vermillion cliffs; southwest, the peaks and ridges of Kaibab iglint in the glimmer of sunset. FUTURE PLANS engage attention. Three trips are proposed, —ore to the Valley of the Virgins ; another to th© Dirty Devil; a third to mount Tram hull. This will keep ns busy until Jaly, Stores will then he collected, boats repaired, and the fleet started down Grand Canon. If F-uccestfol, we shall tarn oar faces home ward in November next. Will work up the country from Fort Yuma to St. George; thence to Salt Lake City, and disband. Captain Bishop’s topographical map of the river is completed; it is* finely executed, taking time and skill. My smashed camera bas been replaced by a new one; the cam bereoiue “hand organ” exchanged for a lighter and mote convenient dark tent. My pack-horce is called “Chemicals,” and is pretty well colored up. We are ready to make hay when the sun shines. A RUNAWAY. March 21.—Left Windsor, in light march ing orcer, for Monut Tramhnll. A short way out, we halted to reainch “ Chemicals.” Onr riding animals stampeded in the mean time. All were soon caught hut my horse. “Buttons,” who ran with speed and bot tom, heedless of the gnn tied to pommel of saddle. Those who joined me in the chase at first gave itnp and went back to the train, which had not stopped. For a day and a half 1 continued the search for the “Win chester,” —a valuable rifle presented by tbe Major. FinaUy succeeded, with help from the ranche. The horses here are half wild, and are ever alert for a stampede. When on the march, they slip and fall, kick and plunge. If, in the course of one day’s jolt ing, pack and passenger are not sea sick, either is good for an Atlantic voyage in win ter. 1 had determined, after resting the fn gitive “ Battens,” to make a forced ride for Trnmbnll. Intelligence arriving that onr boats on the river were being used and rnintdby the miners. I started immediately for the Colorado. In the saddle at dsv hreak, with assistance to recover the craft. The new settlement at the month of the Puhria la called COLORADO DELL, A ferry has been established; a road thither is being made. The trail leads down a canon, and np on the other side through a gulch. Tbe Mormons are blasting rook to get a grade passable for wagons. All this has been done since November. When we cached onr boats there, and left for Kanab, there was not a living souliu bight. Meeting Mr. Hamblin, an old comrade and man of influence, we transferred onr mission to him. The PLACER DIGGINGS, on the Colorado, still absorb interest. There ih a constant stream of miners to and from Pioche. Those hastening to Grand Canon are hopeful, confident. Those returning are desponding, disgusted. Old Californians as sert that the mines will pay from $lO to $2O per day. They expected t£j rich leads of that never-to-be-forgotten year of ’49. The excitement broke out so suddenly, the fever ran so high, that people crowded to the auriferous shore without food, with out knowledge of mining, with out proper implements. After for a time, and getting but tew fine gr ins of gold, provisions ran ont, hopes fail, starvation stares them in the face. The dismal reports of the luckless ones sometimes cans© new-comers to tarn buck when within 10 miles of the river. Oiheisare deteimi'ied to see the elephant for themselves, after so long and fatiguing a jourrey. Bonnamont and Riley bay np tbe quicksilver and copper plates of the “bust ed” companies, aud Seem to be successful. Driftwood, for camp fires, is scarce. Canon walla are 2 000 feet high; tbe talus about 150 test. The liver mat gin is passable for some distance. The wozk is hard, turning over boulders, aud digging dthris. The only way of getting in or out of Marble Canon, by laud, is ria the Kanab Wa-h, described in my last. It is thought the gold is washed down the Grien and Grand, and lodged, with sand and dirt, all along Grand Canon. Others think the shining grains come from tbe Pabria ai d Little Colorado Rivers. Last year, an English Company sent an expert to this region. He prononaced the indica tions of precious metals on the Kaibab plateau as good as anywhere in Utah. Capi tal w ill probably be required to develop the mines. MINERS’ MISERY. Of course, every prospector remembers the extraordinary luck of new miners, and, like the lottery-ticket holders, hopes to draw a large prize. One young man left heme with his earthly all; lost it by the time he got here, and now depends on char ity of the miners. The hapless youth has a walk of 200 miles before him, without adime for food or shelter. Another penniless ad venturer tied his horse to a sage-bush. Tne horse and bash are now ebasiog the ante lope over the plain. The owner Is working for.money to take him home afoot. Fre quent lights are indulged in. The miners’ camp is a cheerful and elevating place. THE PAH UTES prowl about, begging, doing odd jobs, and t ellirg Indian trinkets. Short in stature, half-siarved, scantily-clothed, they present a pitiful, abject appearance. The squaws transport their progeny in Konnnkwas,— willow baby-baskets, covered with back skin. When at Kanab we noticed a Ute mother, not more than three and a half feet high, cairying a queer little imp, evidently the youngest of a numerous family. The papoose attracted the attention of the young Mormons, who followed in a crowd, crying, “ Oh, see that little devil!” The remark was coarse, dis respectful, but wonderfully apt. Pah mesas elk. White children should never address t beir fathers with such a discourteous term. Must of the tribe are now ont on the plateau, gathering yant,—a speciesof the rose. From this product they make a cake, by baking it in the ashes. It is said to taste like roasted chestnuts. March 29.—A storm of mingled hail, rain, and snow drives all within the castle walla. I have been writing this letter the while. A ciazy shepherd pesters me with questions. He has heard of my acquaintance with drugs, and asks, for the hundredth time, what is good for his sore throat. After mak ing a ciiiical examination with butoher knlfe and spoon, a severe process of reason ing has ltd me tosnggest, confidentially, the ute of soothing syrup atd sage (bush) tea. To beguile the hours. I have lectured to the miners on the Correlation of Forces, the Im mortality of the Sou), and the Eternity of Matter. Have also aavised them to go West. Practised with the lasso, which I can no w throw with accuracy around stray sheep. Confinement soon proves monotonous, and I wearily wait the return of the train. SNOWED IN. April 3.—Sunday last, Jones and Fenni more arrived, having ridden 50 miles with out water. They reported Thompson’s party snowed in at the lower end of Mount Trum bull, Feed for horses and wood for fires ex hausted. Captain Dodds can find no way for the train to the Colorado. He succeeded in reaching the river on foot. It nas stormed steadily. Onr comrades have experienced the discomforts we endured at House Hock Valley. Stores will be immediately taken for their relief. GOLD EXCITEMENT is unabated. Fifty men are here encamped, waiting fof the weather to close. A brisk trade is being carried on in batter and beef. The currency used is fair to see,—silver dollars, halves, and quarters, five-dollar gold pieces, eagles, and'double eagles. An occa sional greenback adds variety. A counter feit $lO note was passed on Mr. Windsor, that greatly puzzled the good Bishop. Miners re port every trail to the Colorado Canons crowded with men seeking the new Eldo rado. The washes leadiugdown, such as Pipe Spring, Kanab, and Grand Wash, are the only practicable routes to the river. All sorts of outfits arrive. Some come in wagons, some on horseback, male back, afoot, and one in a donkey-cart. Anything on 'wheels is utterly useless be yond this point. Many miners are going to Arizona and New Mexico. It is said that gold has been found along the Little Col orado—Amule, wUhsaddle and bridle, costs here from $4O to $5O. As intnre letters will chionicle active operations only, it may be well here to give the RESULTS OF THE EXPEDITION thus far. Fourteen hundred miles of a tor tuous and almost inaccessible river have been mapped by the civil engineers. A con tinuous sketch of the left wall of the Col orado and Green has been made by Dellen bangh. His portfolio is also fall of miscel laneous drawings. Nearly 1 000 stereoscopic views have been obtained. Many can never be duplicated ; most are pictures of scenery as grand as the Yosemite, as wonderful as the Yellowstone, andlees known than either A book will be written explaining the views* An accurate snrveey will soon be completed of the Valley of the Colorado and tributary streams. The Base-Line, three miles from Utah and Arizona boundaries will form the basis of future section, county and State surveys. The difference in time between this point and Chicago is 1 3 4 hours. The minerals of the country traversed have been examined, and specimens obtained. The most important are silver, copper, and coal. Gold is very fine, and placer-diggings have alone been discovered. The report of the Geological Corps mil be of great interest. Hooh new information will be .added, and studies in structural geology completed. Fossils of boros. plants, fishes, and corals have been shipped in large quantifies. We find evi dences of large fresh-water lakes ; remains of oorioDß animals; forests turned to stone. SiHcificd tree-trunk?, 80 feet long, and 2 or 3 feet in circnmference, are scattered over the desert, diifted overby sand.—reminding one of the broken columns of the Nile. The plants of Utah have been gathered and classified. Mrs. Thompson has over 200 va rieties. They will appear in late editions of standard works on Botany. Major Powell bas given especial attention to Indian lore. He has made vocabularies of the Übe tongue, learned their traditions, re ligious rites, and tribal laws. He speaks the gibberish of the vari ous tribes, and probably is the most thorough student of their jargon of any white man now living. Specimens of the implements of war and husbandry, pro ducts of the industry and skill, of American Indians, from the Mound-Builders and Az tecs to the Utes and Navajoes, are being col lected in as complete seta as possible ; also blankets, and robes of rabbit and wild cat skins. The arrows alone are suggestive of the power and prowess of the warriors who use them. The Pah-Ute bows have hacks. The Navajo arrows have iron heads, and are feathered. With one of these ar rows they can shoot a man through and through at 50 yards. TRIP TO TUMBULL. April s.—We start to day for Monut Trum bull. A council of the Indians will beheld there, and gifts distributed. Thence we will tnm southward, to the Valley of the Virgen. Fine views and plenty of advent tnres are expected. Storms continue. The mountains, peaks and ridges, of Kaibab look drear in the chill and misty air. Who would he an explorer? Clement Powell. THE CAMPAIGN, Oglesby at Taadalla. Va.nda.lia, 111,, Jaly 6. To tbo Editor ol The Chicago Tribune: Ex-Governor Oglesby, in his address here to night, bidding for Democratic votes, told the Democrats, “I have no fault to find with the course pursued by the Democrats of this State at present; it is upright and commendablethat they were just doing as they should do. “ I have known yon for along time, and yon have known me ; there fore, yon ought to vote for me in preference to a stranger.” The Liberals, because they do not think as he does, he conld not estimate too low; bnt told them * kindly that they are natural born fools; that they are trying to rain this, the greatest and best Government in the world, by handing it over to Greeley and th© Democrats,” by the course they are pur suing. He spoke of the intelligence of the peo ple of the present day; tbat the time was past for leading people. Then went oh, at some length, to explain and convince the people (just as though they were children) that “ the bonds tbat are paid and cancelled, are paid and cancelled, and if you will go on to Washington with me I will show them to yon, and that they are cancelled;” and that they had been paid by the Republican party. He tells the Democrats, “If yon indorse Greeley and the Cincinnati Platform, yon indorse every principle the Republican par ty has advocated for the last twelve years;” that Greeley was an old Abolitionist, and that Grant had once voted the Democratic ticket. He spoke of Grant’s war record in glowing teime, and received a whoop from one per son that perhaps was not aware that the war was over, aud tbat Lee had surrendered. He said nothing of Grant’s statesmanship, bnt tbat “all the fault yon can find with General Grant is, that he ap pointed relatives to cffice. I would rather he had not appointed his relatives; but yon will not denounce a man simply because he appoints his brotber-in-law to office. There is a man in this State that has a brother-in law in office at Springfield; but, as that is the Judge’s brother-in-law, “it is all right.” Bnt not one word of how Mr. Casey, the brother-in-law of General Grant, had be trayed his trust, until even General Grant at last consented to his removal; nor how honorably Dr. Jaines, Judge fra mb nil’s brother-in-law. bad discharged his duty. “ Governor Palmer,” said Oglesby, “ has been blowing aronud tbat he has paid $3.000,000; why, I paid $7,000,000, and paid it ont of my own pocket.” He (Oglesby) was about the only man in the State fit for Governor; and “ We are going to the noils this fall to vote for Grant and Wilson, and Oglesby, ana Beveridge.” In speaking of the Liberal Republican can didate for Governor, Oglesby, instead ot speaking of him as one gentleman should of another, bad to vent his spleen, and termed him an “ understrapper.” The Demo ciate he dubbed as “stnoip enckere,” and Liberals as “sap-snekers.” “Aud now,” said he, “let me tell yon, Democrats, as I stand here upon what was once a consecrated and hallowed soot,—on the steps of what was once the Capitol of Illinois,—that witnessed the foimation of tbe Democratic party,—that here I make my last speech before that party shall fall. You do not die a quiet death; you do not die as an old man sinks to rest; bnt yon die an ignominious death. And now, as I have put the Democrats to sleep, 1 guess I will close. Democrats. 1 bave said nothing hard of yon, havelf So we willparcm peace- Vote for me in November, and that is all I care about.” Immediately to the right of the gentleman who, according to his statement, is going to carry the State of Illinois by from 50,000 to 100,000 This fall, stood our Postmaster and one of the Route Agents on the Yandalia Rail road; and, when it came cheering time, yon could almost see what they had for supper, and very easily guess where that sapper came from. A. P. How an Admlnlsirationiat Treated a Crippled Soldier* Portage Oixt, Wis., July c, ~ To the Editor of The Chicago Tribane: The Wisconsin State Register , a Grant organ, is published by Brannan & Turner, of this city. While a poor, one-armed Union sol dier was playing a hand-organ, in front of the Post Office, this week, Jack Turner, the principal editor, wilfully threw a pail of dirty water, out of his office-window, upon the poor, crippled soldier and his organ. When the poor man went up stairs to de mand the cause, Turner drove him out of his office with a poker, hnt afterwards offered him one dollar by way of recompense. The offer, of course, was refused. The people of this city are justly indig nant, and have made up a parse for the poor soldier, and another one to have the whole proceedings published in detail, if editors will not publish it without pay. The Wisconsin State Register is the same pa per that advocated Lynch law, two years ago, in this city, when every. good citizen deprecated the dastardly act of lynching Spain and Wildrioh; and every newspaper in the State condemned its coarse in that matter. I was an eye-witneae, and saw Turner throw the water, and hope you will publish this statement. A Lady. Liberalism »l Kenosha, Wls. Kenosha, Wis„ July 8* To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sir: When the nomination of Horace Greeley and B. Gratz Brown, at Clnoinnati, was telegraphed here, only four or five of us Hepnblicans at once accepted and openly in dorsed the nomination; although many were in sympathy with the Liberal Hepnblioan movement prior to the Cincinnati nomina tions. after which they turned against it. Hardly any, in the towns of this county, even hinted that they were in any way favorable; but, on the contrary, it was said that not a Republican in the towns was for Greeley, but now we have not less than one hundred and fifty Republicans, in the city and county, ont-and-ont for Greeley and Brown. Some who, a few weeks siuce, were loud in their denunciations, now say “ W© are for Greeley.” After the Baltimore Convention, we shall organize the county for a vigorous campaign. Earnest work will be immediately com menced, and prosecuted till the election, when Kenosha County will give a glorious report for Reform and the Sage of Chap paqua. Yours, Republican. Liberalism In Clark County* Dio* Cahoka, Clark County, Mo., July 6, To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sir : The Democrats in this section are unanimously for Honest Old Horace Greeley and Gratz Brown as the next chief rulers of this country for one term of four years. There area great many leading Republicans of this (Clarke) County supporting Greeley and Brown who supported Grant in 1868, and who now openly denounce him daily as an unfit rnler for this nation. The Son. Bryant Bartlett, a leading Republican of Clark City, t-womiles fromnere, is a strong advocate and supporter of the White Hat candidate of Cincinnati; also, Caotaiu Day, of Waterloo, formerly the county-seat of this county. (The change to Cahoka as the county-seat occurred last year, and. since thti), we have built a fine Court House, costing $23,000 to $30,000 ) The Hon, James Blair, Congressman from this district, is in town, and is going to address the citizens or Lnray to-day for Greeley ana Brown. Luray is situated on the railroad, ten miles from here. There are a great many leading Re publicans keeping silence until they see if Greeley and Brown are approved at Balti more. If thsy are, they will be loud in their denunciations of Grant, and it will make a great change in this county. Here tofore it has been strongly Radical. —from 800 to 1,000 majority,—but it is conceded by all that it will go for Greeley and Brown by 500 to 700 majority. The disfranchised citi zens will poll COO votes, and about 400 Regu lars are going for Greeley, Resneotfnlly, L. Moore. Liberalism In Lake County * Hl* Waukegan, 111., July 9. To tho Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sir; I am pleased to see that many of our Administration men are opening their eyes THE CHICAGO TRIBUTE: THURSDAY; JULY 11. IBT2. to the facts, and are gradually, but steadily, con in g out for the Philosopher, fL G. As an evidence of the fact, a voce was recently taken at a dinner-table, surrounded by county officers, in onr place, and the result was 1 hat l ota vote was given tor Grant. Sr.vtrul of these gentlemen had heretofore been advocates of Grant. 1 think I can say that the County of Lake, that has, for sev eral years, cast three-fourths of her voces for the paity in power, will tbia fail gi 70 25 per cent 01 her Republican vo-es to the Lib eral party. Constantinople, Grtelry Grinding Grant, To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune:" Sir: To-day, Grant is being ground, or, rather, pulverized, by and Tietween two enormous millstones: Liberal Republican ism and Liberal Democracy; and if, by next November, he is not ground to wafer-like proportions, he will surely be pulverized ex ceedingly small. By that time, the hero of military stiffness will have had most of his 4 ‘civil service” starch taken out of him, and will learn, when too late, that a party may be “done up” with too much starch. Gree ley, once a farmer, is now showing the peo ple what he knows about milling. He is now inning the mill of the gods. Chicago, July 10. Oglesby on Greeley. From the Bock Island (111) Argus. Oglesby made a slashing speech at Decatur on Saturday. Great mt-rrlmeut arose when the speaker said : “ Greeley is a man of great ability. Hh is rotto be laughed at—if you can help it.”— Chicago Post Ir. is very common now for Grant’s office holders to underrate the abilities of Mr Greeley: and even editors of Grant news papers sometimes so far forget their nride in their own profeesion as to join in this senseless talk. Mr. Greeley is one of-the first and ablest statesmen in this country. For thirty years hismind has been a loading one upon all the great questions of home and foreign policy. He belongs to a class of great men, like F. P. Blair, Father Ritchie, Tbnrlow Weed, James Gordon Bennett, William Cullen Bryant, William L. Marcy, B. Gratz Brown, Edwin Croawell, Charles G. Greene, and others, all editors and statesmen, and any one of whom would have made a better President than some we have had. For thirty years Horace Greeley has been in a position where he was com pelled to thoroughly discuss every question in American and Foreign politics. He is and always has been better informed on all pub lic questions than most of the men who are called statesmen. He has furnished most of them with with brains. His discussions of pn Pile questions have furnished Congressmen, Cabinet Ministers, aud Presidents with ideas. He is and always has been the peer of them all—the superior of most of them. His ever ready, ripe, thoroughly cultivated and vigorous mind has been in the very front of all the leading minds of the country. How puerile, then, are the attempts of his opponents to belittle his abilities. Presi dents. Cabinet officers. Senators, members of Congress, Governors of States, and thousands in authority have songht hia counsels or drawn inspiration from his editorials, for years, and all the efforts to belittle him in the eyes of the people will fail now.

STEALING A STEAMBOAT; How a Delrolier Became Gap I ala and Crew. From the Detroit Free Press, July 7. Kotlong ago a well-known Detroiter paid a visit to some friends at an interior town in Canada. When coming home he took the Sarnia branch of the Great Western Hall way, intending to cross the ferry to Port Hu ron, and remain in the lattercity overnight. The train did not reach Sarnia, however, un til the ferry boats had laid np for the night, bntas the gentleman had daring the even ing assiduously applied himself to strength ening his nerves (he bad been presented with a pint of Canada rye at London), the fact that no boats were rnnning did not seem to him a very great obstacle. Step ping into the Belcbamber Honse he took one more drink, and started for the ferry dock. Arrived there he went on board the boat, cast off her lines, sot the engines working and then “went lor” the whistle cord. There was a fair head of steam on, and as he opened the valve to its fnllest extent the screeching presently be came frightful. Away went the boat, but, as there was no person at the wheel, the conrse she described was one of the most ex traordinary known in nautical records. All this time the screeching of the whistle was kept, np, varied with occasional lusty pulls at the hell rope. Within five minutes half the population of Sarnia were on the dock. The men belonging to the boat were among the first arrivals, and, partially comprehend ing the real state of afiairs, procured a yawl boat, manned it, and started in pur suit. They yelled to the man aboard the ferry boat to lay to, but no human voice could be heard above the clanging of the bell and the piercing shrieks of the whistle, which seemed to grow louder each in stant. The pursuers after a tortuous chase at last came alongside. The engineer man aged to clamber aboard, rushed to the engine and shut off steam before addressing himself to the task of pitching the intruder over board. The latter had by that time become sufficiently sober to comprehend his situa tion, and saved himself a tumble into the river by promising to explain matters. The boat was headed for the dock (the Detroiter having surrendered the engine and taken the wheel), which was shortly reached, and everything was again made secure. The excited crowd were of oonrsa eager to know the cause of the strange com motion. and the gentleman who was still in the wheel-house, volun teered to explain. He came down, and the moment he stepped ashore he was recog nized by a dozen or more persons on the dock, who were also familiar with his little eccen tricities, and were not long, therefore, in finding a eolation of the puzzling affair. The Detroiter related the circumstances, or such of them as he could remember, and con cluded with an invitation to all present to join him at the nearest hotel for refresh ments. The alarm over, good-nature was restored, and dnring the next two hours the Detroiter did his utmost to convince the company that he was a pretty good fellow after all, and that rather than steal a steam boat he would prefer to buy the concern out aid out and set np a ferry business of his own. The joke preceded him to Detroit, and upon his return home a delegation met him at the depot, who insisted upon “one all around,” without sugar.
