The following opinions from the finan cial columns of a leading Western pa per are those generally entertained in this locality. All agree that the administration lias made good its pledges to reduce the public debt, lessen taxation, and promote economy, but they also think that the debt is now being reduced at the expense of the general interest faster than is necessa ry. The following is front the Chicago Advance a religions paper: The first and most obvious inference to be drawn front the present state of the treasury is that President Grant has abundantly made good his inaugural pledge to collect the rev enues fully, and disburse them honestly. The efficiency and general iutegrity of the present revenue service cannot lie doubted, and the unwavering determination of the President. Secretary Houtwell and Commis sioner Delano, to prevent shirking among tax payers and thieving among tax-collectors is conspicuous—to some unpleasantly so. With : precisely the same or less taxation, and with i general business no whit more prosperous, ] the revenue receipts in Grant’s first year ex- ; need those of Johnson's last by nearly sixty millions, and expenses fall far below. While we undeniably have an honest and energetic administration, another thing is made cleafby our marvelous monthly treas ury statements, namely, that our Congress, if not rigidly economical in all tilings, at least nobly lbrbears to increase expenditures in the same ratio that receipts augment. A stand-1 ing, ami a valid argument against alargerev- ! enue surplus above the current need* of the j government, is that it lurnishes an irresistible , temptation to extravagant legislation and leg-! illative corruption, but it is only fair to say ] that the present Congress, with an annual j unappropriated surplus of more than one bun- I dred million dollars at its disposal, lias stead ily and materially reduced Instead of inereas- j ing the expenses of the government, even cutting down the estimates of heads of de partments, who are themselves regarded as rigid economists. We consider this a fact of i great significance and great hopefulness, j Frequently us we find it necessary to criticise Congress, we take pleasure in doing it jus tice here. If it blunders it does not deliber ately waste. From these hopeful aspects of the situation we are forced to turn to the unpleasant side and to assure Mr. Houtwell, in all friendli ness, that the country cannot afford the lux ury of las monthly balances. They cost too much for the good they do. They take the life-blood from the veins of business to make tha-treasury look ruddy-faced. Two-thirds of the piesent overgrown monthly surplus, if left in the hands of tax-payers and in the channels of trade, would often make just the difference between comfort and hardship, ease and embarrassment, business activity and business depression. The holders of our unmatured bonds do not want their mon ey, and the canceling of one hundred millions of our debt each year will not help our credit abroad half as much as the basis of that cred it—national prosperity—will he injured by the present weight of taxation. The Treasury Department lias issued another warning circular relating to Can adian in-shore fisheries. It gives the treaty stipulations and the recent action of the Canadian Government, calling attention to the fact that the warning formerly given is now dispensed with, and that vessels tres passing are liable to seizure without such warning. A steamer with sailing vessels now forms a marine branch of the Can adian police to enforce these fishing laws. It is understood that, by a change of boun daries between Canadia and Labrador, the Canadian territory now includes Mount Joby and a portion of shore to the east thereof, which in the treaty of 1818 was described as tlie southern coast of Labra dor. This municipal qhange of boundary does not, however, iuterlero with the rights of American fishermen as defined by the treaty on that portion of what was the southern coast of Labrador, east of Mount Joby. The Venezuelan Dictator, Gcrzman lllauco, intends to make himself felt. The Holland Minister has demanded his pass ports from Hlancoon account of the seizure of a Dutch steamer, and American mer chants arc iu trouble by an order of the same functionary closing certain Venezu elan ports. The Somerset Reporter in an article upon the re-nomination of Mr. lliaine says: No man in the Republican party ban been *o conspicuous a mark for the opposition press and none has been so violently assailed; yet the unmistakable voice of the sturdy republi cans of the district is almost unanimous for the re-nomination of a mail who has done sig nal service to bis district, the country and Id' party. NARROW ESCAPE. The escape of three mechanics from going over l’assaic Falls, on Thursday, was almost a miracle. Their names were Thomas dowdy. Richard Coyle, and John Carter; the two first named being heads of families. They hired a boat of one Thomas Mallowship and pushed out into the river, but fifteen or twenty feet above the high dam of the Society of Useful Manufactures, situated some dis tance above the Great Falls. Above this dam the water is deep and smooth; below, and to the cataract, the stream is broken and kept boiling by ragged rocks, until within a few feet of the main plunge, where the surg ings rest for a moment as if for gathering of strength for the final leap. Rut even above the dam the current was too strong for the unskilled arms of the three mechanics, and the boat drifted rapidly to ward the dam. dowdy, who could not swim, screamed in terror that they would be drowned, and at the instance of his compan ions jumped overboard and succeeded in pull- , ing himself along the dam until he safely reached the shore. The other two, however, \ Coyle and Carter, remained in the boat, and clinging to it went over the society dam, ! which at this point is eight or ten feet high. In going over the boat capsized. Luckily the ; boat went over on the north side, opposite ; from the great fall. Some one on the bank called for them to leave the boat and swim for the shore. Carter obeyed and arrived to land safely, although thoroughly exhausted in his battle with the fierce current. Coyle, how ever, clung to the boat, which was fast float- ! ing toward the cataract, turning over and over as it went, making it a very difficult task for the unfortunate man to retain hiwhold. | On one occasion, as the boat rolled over, Coyle went under it, and all who witnessed his struggles thought he was gone; but in an instant he was up again and had hold of his j risky life preserver. As he neared the fatal precipiee he apparently gave up in despair, and ceased his efforts to save himself, and the unfortunate man would undoubtedly have been lost had not some one from the bank , cried for him to keep up his exertions. He did so, and by a superhuman effort succeeded in heading the boat for the shore, managing to reach the Water Company’s pump house, and catching a rope thrown to him just an in stant before he would have been dashed over J the precipice, seventy feet in height, with six j tv feet of water at the bottom. So tenaciously [ did he retain his hold of the boat that had saved his life that he did not let it go even after he caught hold of the rope thrown him, and the little craft was also saved. He was hauled upon the shore, and fell to the ground prostrated with his exertions. Not a whole : garment remained on his person, all having , been torn in his battle with the current and by coming in contact with the sharp points of the rocks. POLITICAL. The Lacon (111.,) Statesman comes out for Hon. John T. Hoffman of New York, for President, and Mr. Samuel F. Cary, of Ohio, for Vice President, in 1875. The Springfield (111.) Register thinks “this is a good ways ahead.” The Cincinnati Chronicle predicts that the Ohio Democracy will name Senator Thurman ns their preference for the Presidential race in 1872. Only three Illinois papers oppose the adop tion of the new constitution, and two of these base their opposition on the recognition of the fifteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States. A Texas pnper asserts that the bitterest Radical in the Legislature of that State is an ex-Confederate general, who went to Brazil at the close of the war because he would not live under the hated government of the Yan kees. He is wiser now than he was at the close of the war. The Wisconsin State Temperance Society held its annual meeting in Milwaukee on Tuesday, and voted to hold a mass convention in the same city on the 8th of September, to I consider the advisability of organizing a tem perance political party. j The Union League Club of New York has ! pronounced officially against the income tax. The Legislature of Michigan has been called together in extra session in consequence of the recent decision of the Supreme Court of that State, pronouncing town and county sub scriptions to railroads unconstitutional. A CHINESE COLONY IN. MASSA CHUSETTS. A colony of Chinese has been brought from California anil settled at North Adams, Massachusetts. The Crispins ; have made some opposition to this arrange ment, as the new comers are intended for 1 the shoe manufactories. A correspondent j of the Boston Advertiser at that place i wrote on Wednesday : “The Chinese shoemakers have had another holiday to-day, time being found necessary to complete the preparation of their quarters, and tor rest from the fatiguing journey. They have been busy in many ways, some washing out clothes, some learning the Knglish language, some studying arithmetic in the calculating machines they have brought with them. One rapid learner, who did not know a single I letter yesterday, has mastered the alphabet perfectly. The Chinese foreman has visited the stores witli Mr. Sampson’s foreman, made many purchases of dishes, shirts, &t\, has not been molested by the Crispins, and has | been very heartily welcomed to town by many citizens. The instructor- engaged by Mr. Sampson to teach the new hands, a veter an shoe manufacturer from Springfield, has arrived, and proposes to begin his task to morrow. lie had been in town but a few hours when he was accosted by strangers, one after another, and warned with various significant hints that it would be well for him to desist, and was told that more money i might be made by going home. He is a man of some obstinacy, however, and not likely i to be either frightened or bribed away. Other- | wise the Crispins have not made any demands, j and are not likely to make any at present, i There are some citizens of the town, not , Crispins, who think they see cause for alarm in the introduction of ‘slavery,’ as they call j them, fearing a decrease of trade by the ! Chinese habits of cheap living, hut the better j class of residents unanimously approve Mr. j Sampson’s movement as made necessary by j the outrageous conduct of the Crispins, and express confidence that they will give no : trouble if well treated, but harmonize with New England communities.” A Pesth journal say* the Poise intends j to make a compromise on the question of | Infallibility, which he hopes will receive the unanimous sup|>ort of the Council. THE SAGUESAY FIRE. An official enquiry 1ms been made into the i results of the great Saguenay fire which re-! veals facts of a distressing character. In his report the Commissioner thus des cribes the scenes he witnessed : I everywhere found the most complete ruin and desolation. Animals, honset, /enecs, growing crops, j forests, all, had well nigh wholly,disappeared. Seven persons perished in the flames, and a great nunider of others were seriously in jured. The great proportion of those who j escaped death did so only by flying to wells, cellars and deep holes in the earth, or by j taking refuge in their boats and pushing into | the streams. Upon the road I encountered the destitute families of the unfortunate colonists, some of them half naked, and all of them waiting in anxiety the arrival of food ! and succor. In one under ground chamber which I visited four men had taken refuge and were burned to death. Their ashes were afterward gathered together. On the way I was continually stopped and begged to visit the sick and the woupded, and I complied in each ease, giving them all the consolation in my power, and promising them the most prompt aid possible. The reports published in the newspapers, far front being exaggerat ed. came, in my view, short of the reality. The extent of country ravaged by the fire commences at the Kiver Mistassini, at the head of Lake St. John, ns far as Ha! Ha! Bay, a distance of 25 leagues (75 miles). In this district the number of families who have lost everything and arc ruined is 555. Two churches were burned to the ground, as well as several mills. In the parish of St. Jerome, on a road built up on the east side for a dis tance of not less than nine miles, only two j ovens were found standing. Next follows an account of the distribution of supplies, anil the Commissioner continues : 1 am unable to restrain the expression of my admiration with regard to the conduct of the clergy and the other citizens of the ravaged localities, their zeal and readines to help being apparently without limit. The more fortunate have freely shared with their destitute brethren all their linen, grain, provisions, and money. Many poor people must of neccessity have died of hunger had it not been fur the charity of the people belonging to llcrbertville nnd Chicoutimi. WASHING TOS SEWS. The House committee on territories is ready to report an enabling act for the ad-1 mission of New Mexico as a State, to be | named Lincoln, but the ehanees for the j passage of the measure this session are j not favorable. General Dix was one of the pall bearers at the funeral of Jerome Napoleon Bona parte at Baltimore. The tax bill, as reported in the Senate, fixes the duty on coal at fifty cents in place of. the existing duty of $1.25. The House declared for free coal by a large i majority, and such an amendment will be 1 moved in the Senate, when the bill comes up for action. The House Military Committee has ap pointed Messrs. Negley of Pennsylvania, Stoughton of Michigan and Stout of New York a sub-committee to investigate the management of national asylums for vol-! .unteers. ' Gen. Butler appeared before them and presented the report of the Board of Managers, showing what moneys they have received and how it lias been expended. The real estate purchased is wortli now more than it cost, and fifteen hundred veterans are being maintained at a very low rate. It is stated that Judge Bingham is will ing to retire from the Congressional field if he can get the right sort of foreign appointment, and his friends are getting up recommendations in his favor for the mission to Italy, now filled by George P. Marsh. The last reported count of the Senate shows that eight Senators are wanting to make up a two-thirds vote for the Sun Domin go treaty. The Republican Congressional Committee has chosen as-Secretary, T. L. Tullock, who held the same position during the Grant cam paign. The Senate judiciary committee has agreed to report favorably on the nomination of Mr. Ackerman for Attorney-General, and his friends do not doubt his confirmation. Commissioner Delano is of opinion that the receipts of Internal Revenue for the present fiscal year to the end or last day of this month will exceed $182,(J00,000 which will be seven millions of dollars above his estimate. A Washington special says that a statement is made by the most unquestionable authority that Secretary Fish will retire from the Cabi net as soon as the President decides on his successor. The Ohio Patriot lays down its platform of the following democratic timber: “White men only to hold office in town, county, state or United States. No mixture of the Anglo-Saxon with the African race in our public schools. White men for jurors and all other public positions.” Capt. Knight’s new paper—The Star—has twenty-eight columns, is on new type, and makes a fine appearance. It is to be issued every Sunday, and will undoubtedly become indispensable to the reading public of Port land. The Captain is a versatile, genial and pungent knight of the quill, and we predict for him a pleasant career in his new enter prise. Rev. George E. Adams, pastor of the Con gregational church in Brunswick, resigned his pastoral services on Sunday. Mr. Adams has been a most active and fathtul minister for over 40 years. He will probably go to Orange, New Jersey. Langdon N. Moore, one of the New York parties implicated in the Lime Rock Bank robbery, was on Monday taken before Judge Dickenson of the Supreme Court on a writ of habeas corpus, and a motion for reducing his bail, which is twenty-five thousand dollars, whs argued by counsel. The motion was denied and the prisoner remanded to jail. ' GENERAL NEWS. The French Academy lias found several plants as sensitive to chloroform as animals. New York is making arrangements to con vey fruit from Delaware this season by water. “Vacation,” says the Church Cnion, “is a true whetstone, on which over-taxed men sharpen their faculties for better work.” The Journal Offlciel contradicts the reports of the illness of the Emperor and Prince Na poleon, nnd states that both are in good health. A Rhode Island paper is very severe upon a mean man in that .State. It says he would take his grandmother’s coffin to slide down hill on. A horse of Plymouth, Mass., was fright- ■ ened to death at the sight of an elephant. The proprietors of the managerie paid the owner. Baltimore has painted its garbage carts a bright blue, v itli the running gear nnd shafts red, nnd had a grand procession of them through the principal streets a day or two ago. The Michigan State geological survey is in progress north of Houghton lake. The iron and copper regions of I.ake Superior will be thoroughly examined. Here is the way in which they advertise the qualifications of a situation-seeker in Brig ham Young’s domain : “He is a watchmaker by trade, a faithful man and a saint, and is willing to help build up Zion.” I.nborcrs on an English railway lately found a thrush’s nest under a rail, with the hen peacefully sitting on four eggs, undisturbed by the thunder of passing trains. The bill to equalize the bounties of soldiers passed the House on Friday, without opposi ;ion. It appropriates $19,000,000, nnd had previously passed the House, substantially as sow. Two boys, aged respectively twelve and thirteen years, started from Cedar Falls, Iowa, a few days ago for the plains, to hunt bears jnd Indians. They were overtaken twelve miles front home and taken back to their mammas. An old gentleman who resides near Bostou never has green peas for dinner without re membering the poor by sending the pods to the orphan asylum. Bishop Simpson, while in Europe, will visit Denmark, Sweden and Norway, as well as Germany and Switzerland to attend various Methodist Conferences. Cincinnati is to have a grand industrial cx- ; hibition, commencing September 21 and con- ! tinuing to October 15. It is said to be held j under the auspices of the Chamber of Com merce, the Board of Trade and the Ohio Me chanics' Institutes. A giddy student, having had his skull trae- j tured, was told by the doctor that the brain ; was visible, on which he remarked, “Do | write and tell father, for he always said I Igul none.” A German inventor is exhibitng a talking machine at Bremen. It is made of wood and caoutchouc, and is of life size, in the form of a woman. It chatters away like any living member of the sex. What the age really re quires is a machine to diminish the excess of talk. This is to be a wonderful year in Holland, j for this is the year of the blue tulip. A pre- i diction exists that in 1»T0 some successful ! horticulturist will raise a blue tulip, and a prize of many thousand francs awnits the producer of the rare flower. Already there are some six hundred different kinds of tulips in Holland. There is a renewed oil excitement at West Hickory, l’a., and the various roads leading to the Forest county oil regions arc lined with pedestrians wending their ways over the hills in search of leases and employment. Build ings arc being erected, and oil rigs are spring ing up like mushrooms, reminding one of Pithole in its palmy days. Oscar Cespedes, the son of the leader of the Cuban rebellion, who was captured by the Spanish troops and executed on May BO, had just been married to a Cuban lady of seven teen, who was also captured. It is said the Spaniards do not treat her as his widow, but consider the marriage as of no binding effect. Westerville, Ohio, with twelve hundred in habitants, is quite a model town. No drink ing snloon or other low place of resort has ever been tolerated, and the citizens are de termined that none ever shall be. The streets are lined with shade trees, and the yards fill ed with evergreens and fruit trees. For healthfulness and beauty the place is not readily excelled. SEW PUBLICATIONS. The Harpers publish a veay neat edition of Charles Keade’s works, and have just issued as a part of it “Put Yourself in His Place,” the same work which we have previously noticed. Purchasers can exrmine the differ ent editions for themselves and take their choice. Clapp & North have it. And still another edition by the Harpers of the same, of which we have “Put Yourself in Hie Place,” in larger form, or as the printers say, royal octavo, instead of 12 mo. as the other is. These three editions read very much alike. Clapp & North liave it. We have received of the magazines for June, The American Naturalist, Hours at Home; Uood Words; Oliver Optic’s Maga zine for Boys and Girls ; for July, The Atlan ta Monthly; Our Young Folks; The Galajy ; and Godey’s Lady’s Book ; Lippencotts ; all of which may be found at the bookstores. Hearth & Home for this week (dated June 25) contains the first of a series of sketches entitled Jethro Throop's Night Thoughts, hy John Thomas, who is no other than Petrole um V. Nasby. The great humorist will take an honest country boy to the city, conduct him through the usual experience, nnd re store him to his home a sadder and wiser boy, satisfied that the peaceful, honest, and tem perate life of the farmer is the best and safest life that can he lived. This is a lesson great ly needed at this time, and Nasby is the man to teach it. THE EARTHQUAKE AT OAXACA. The terrible earthquake at 'Oaxaca, which nearly destroyed tl;at city, is fully described in letters lately received, and published. One account says: •• About half-past eleven I*. M., several hard shocks were felt, causing destruction of life and property all over the city. The , motion was oscillating at first from south to north, then vertical or trembling. The shocks lasted about fifty-eight seconds, and in force, destruction and severity surpassed any thing of the kind that has ever taken place in this State. Oaxaca is probably one of the strongest, most firmly constructed cities in Mexico; yet the condition of the houses since the earthquake is truly deplorable—some of them in complete ruins. The palace is al most destroyed, and will require thousands of dollars before it can he made suitable for oc- ; cupation. San Francisco is one mass of ru- i ins. and the whole of the corridors of the old j convent ot San .Juan de Dios fell, burying four j persons and wounding many more. The clock | tower, which was only finished on the 5th of May, was shaken down, passing through the top of the building into the Supreme Court rooms, and through the floors of these into the portals of the palace. The total number of persons killed is about one hundred, while it is impossible to ascertain the number of the wounded. The shocks continued the next day (Thursday.) and about a quarter to one a very severe one was felt. Friday there were one or two very slight shocks. Terror j reigns supreme, and upon the countenance of every one anxiety and fear of greater evil are plainly depicted. All remained in the public squares and outside of the city for fear that greater shocks would come, and, on account of its dilapidated condition, would make a complete ruin of the entire city.” • -=---I Pure Drugs & Chemicals Foil SALE At tho Lowest Rates !
