Flvo thousand dollars have been subscribed for the purchase of grounds for the permanent location of the State Fair at Des Moines.

Samuel Kirk wood seems now as likely as any other man to succeed Judge Wright in the Senate. No other man thus far mentioned for the place would better fill it, though some tall men have been named. There are 21 candidates for tha Re publican nomination for congress in the 1st Massachusetts district, with out counting Gen. Butler. The cli mate of New lied ford seems equally adapted to the production of states men and clams, says the State Jour- Thai Senatorial excursion to Mex ico is now credited with a commit slon from the government to see that the graves of the soldiers killed in the Mexican war are properly cared for. But that won't hinder them from taking initial steps lo prevent another war. In comment upon the proposition to make Gen. Hancock the Demo cratic nominee for the Presidency in 1876, the Cincinnatti Enquirer says: Gen. Hancock is a very clever gen tleman, but the demand for the con version of the White House into military barracks is not as great as it was a few years ago." Gen Spinner, who has been TJnele 8am's Treasurer, at Washington, since the Chase's day, will step down and out on tne 1st of July, wheu John C. New, of Indianapolis, is to take his place. Spinner Is chiefly known to the public by his remark able signature. His faithfulnens as an officer never has been questioned but it is hinted that he and Bristow do not hitch well together. The New man is a prominent banker, of Senator Morton's selection. That the next contest for the elec tion of President will be straight be tween the two great parties—Repub lican and Democratic—there now seems scarcely a doubt. Though third party schemes are talked of, they find small favor, and their bot toms soon fall out. The third-term nonsense never had any bottom. The Democracy since a few months carried three-fourth# of their capital in that bottomless tub but that sham will no longer answer their purpose. Whal will they do next? Ata venture we will suggest that the best thing to unite the Democracy would be the nomination of Vic. Wood hull for President by the Dem ocratic National Convention. Then Jeff. Davis should U the nominee for vice-President. Place the pair upon a Beecher platform, get Andy John eon to endorse the piat/orm, spread his sheltering wiftg* over the ticket and swing round the circle for loth, and the many fractions of which the Democratic party Is ettpposed to eofr •1st will be united and cemented. VOL. XIX. KNOXVILLE, IOWA, THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 1876. NO. 44. HsrtM-Haw ts taprets jfiw 8t«ck. It!« gratifying to note the growing disposition among western formers to breed better strains of stoek. They see every year more plainly the advantages gained by giving new and improved strains of blood to their herds. In Iowa this dispo sition has found expression and ap plication for a number of years mainly in the improvement of cattle and hogs. Now it is extending to horses, and with results equally satis factory. In answer to inquiries from many formers as to the best breeds for this State a correspondent of iotro Fine-Stock Qcuctte writes: The desire to raise valuable stock is increased in proportion to the in crease of profflt to be derived from them. This is not in consequence of caprice, but is attributable to the fact that it is cheaper to raise and keep a good horse than a poor one. The prime cost is only the difference to be considered. The price of stable room, keep and care, is identical, but the wear and tear is infinitely less In the sound, able, careful animal, than in the broken-down plug. The valuejand excellence of the work horse consists in the action, power to move or carry weight, and ability to endure fatigue, to come again to work, day after day, week after week, year after year, with undim inished vigor. The horse that can plow an acre while another is plow ing one-half an acre, or that can car ry a load of passengers or grain ten miles while another is going five, independent of all considerations of pleasure and fancy, Is absolutely worth twice as much to the owner as the other. Now the question for the farmers is simply this By what inoans Is this to be obtained? The answer is, by getting the great est possible amount of pure blood compatible with size, weight and power, acoording to the purpone for which he intends to raise the stock, into the animals he breeds. The blood should always be on the sire's side, and for the farmer's pur pose the horse should be of medium height, say fifteen and a half hands high, weighing from 10ro to 1200 pounds (never over the last weight), ffioit bad:, well ribbed up. He should have high withers, broad loins and chest, a straight rump, clear bright, well placed eye, broad nostrils and small ear, and the more action of the trotter the better. From such a horse, and from a well chosen mare, sound, healthy and well limbed, he may be certain (acci dents set aside) of raising an animal that would b« creditable to him as a stock breeder and profitable to him in a pecuniary sense. The farmer who breeds ttf lunk head or plug stallion instead of a fine blooded one thereby saving from $.* to $10 in the service, is not posted upon the subject. He loses the time and use of the mare in each case alike, and while in the first case he raises a miserable, scrawny scalawag of a colt worth anywhere from ten to twenty-five dollars, he In the latter case stands the chance of raising a trotter worth from one to six hundred dollars, and with the same amount of latxr arid expense, saving the mere difference paid for the ser vices of the horse. At the last State Fair held at Keo kuk there were exhibited three ciases of horses for the sweepstakes for the best herd of horses, to-wlt: The Norman Percherons, the thorough bred, and the Bashsws and Hambie tonlans combined, and the premium was awarded to the last breed, on the ground, that while the Normans were too large and unwieldy, the thoroughbreds too fine and spirited, the others combined all the qualities that go to make such an animal as I have described above. I am aware that there are many who will disagree with me upon this subject, and will breed their small mares to these large stallions, but I predict that in less than five years time I bey will see their error. M. Lssli. Ifow that we are In the midst of struggle for railroad connection di« feet direct with the "fa to re great city," and earnestly longing for au opportunity to carry our products to her markets and bring back her manufactured articles, thereby secur* ing better prices for what we sell and lower rates on what we buy, some ^jtatisUcs showing what that city Is and indicating what it la to be, will no doubt prove interesting to many of our readers. The Davenport Ckb sett* compiles the following: St. Lotto is just aow challenging the credaility of the oataide world by the claim she la making to sub stantial progress during a period of general depression. From advance sheets of Gould's St. Louie Directory for 1875, which has been given to the public, It appears that the directory contains 118,870 names, not including the 13th ward—a gain of over 4,000 names within the same territory since last year, indicating an increase of about 18,000 population. Upon the basii of the estimate adopted last year the population on the first of Januaryt 1875, was 490,000. In 1*70 the oensns showed the population to be 312,911, and the number of schol ars enrolled, 26,811. There are now 42,068 scholars enrolled, which would make t^B population, at the same ratio, 4il,816. This is a gaiu of 57 per cent* in five years. This Increase is proved by other statistics. In 1870 there were but 64, 425 names in the directory, aad ac cording to the ratio of that year the present population is over 650,000. Again, within the five years, build ing penults for 7,465 substantial structures of brick and stone have been imucd, costing $34,412,466. Of these 1,801 were issued during the year 1874, costing $10,209,230. It Is claimed that iu New York only 1,800 substantial buildings were erected last year, and In Chicago only 756 such buildings. The records of food consumed support these estimates of growth. Iu the three years from lstw -70 the oonsumption of flour was 175, 187 barrels, and for the three years '72-74 inclusive 275,995 barrels, an In- crease precisely corresponding to that of population above given. The In crease In theconsumption of potatoes was still greater—from 180,000 to ii60, uoo bushel* of corn meal from 82, 000 to 88,(oo barrels of oats, of oats, from 1*100,000 to 2,275,000 bushels and of hay, from 82,000 to 171,000 bales. The growth of bnelnees eeems to have more than kept pace with tho increase of population. The bank clearings have increased 60 per oent. »ince lflp. For the two year*. 1810 and 'TO. they avtnfged yearly while for 1878 and 1874 the average waa #1,159,918,880, an in crease of 70 per cent. The cotton trade has been nearly created within five years. In 1870 the receipts were 11,372 bales In 1874, I VI.95S. Other branches show remarkable growth In) the rtame period, as the following:1 Head of cattle, 201,J22 in 1870, us against 360,925 in '74 hogs, number, 810,xfo as against 1,126,580 lead lbs., 18,903,120, against 85,301,520 sugar, hhds., 23,289 against 3H.337 coffee, bagH, 113,950 against 158,919 wheat, bushelti, (1,638,163 as against 8,255,221 flour, bbls, 1,481,626 a» against 1,083,- 898. Notwithstanding the 1'presHion last year, the value of goods received and shipped is estimated at $30,000, 000 iu excess of the previous year. The growth of manufacturing, not withstanding the prostration in Iron and other brauches, and the legiti mate effects of the panic, is equally gratifying. In flouring mill products the production whs 1,100,000 barrels in lHtki, and 1,573,202 ill 1874. Pork packing advanced from 241,000 hogs to 4&i,000--a gain of 92 per cent. The products of sugar refining increased from 4,135,250 to $6,500,000 manufac tures of furniture from 2,863,659 to $5,000,000 pianos from $103,700 to $500,000 type foundries $105,000 to $150,000. The entire value of manu factured products of Ht. I»uis for 1874 is est I mated at $239,fi00,000—a gain of $29,600,000 °ver 1S73, and of fifty-one per oent. in value since 1870. These results, so flattering to local pride, are interpreted as proving that Ht. Louis is "impregnable to disas ter" while credit is given therefore to new facilities of communication, and especially during tho pa»t year to the completion of the Ht. IXMIIS Bridge, muter the auspices of Capt. Eads. If the population and business of Ht. I^juis have increased over fifty per cent, in the last five years, in spite of recent discouragements, as the advance sheets of her new di rectory show, she may well enter tain high hopes of the future. Thai her prospects are destined to grow brighter, under impulse* which she has not yet begun to feel, there w?»» not be a doubt. The improvement of the Mississippi, by the early eoin plrtka Keokok canal, the ?ff v I.-"- 3m ti %«.,* i- ftBK reaaoval of ofcatructioae at points, and theopenlng of tfce math of the river to ocean vessels, is die* lined to change important tenants of trade, to the manifest advantage of St Louis and New Or!sees. Pree» ant railroad legialatloe, If it no other crimination will secure transhipment to the' peal water highway wheoever that becomes the beet route te the foreign or domestic market This control will not be reilnqniehsd If the people find that it servee tfeafcr interests. Those who lack faith the Mississippi is to beeome mensely more important to merce than it has yet been, have oft* ly to wait till they see ocean steam* era ooaneetlng the river with Llvep*' pool, the Weet Indies, and CentMl and South America, and bringttf Importations direct to the gnat cities of the valley, with whom all the towns which line the river will then be brought into closer business relations. We believe this will 0Q» eur within the next deoade. Hence all that relates to the growth, pros* perity, resources, productions and advantages of St. Louis is of Inter* eet to the people of the Northweetf' and should eolist their attention. Let us prepare for the day, not dis tant as all doubtless hope and trust, when Iowa will have "two strings to her bow -when the South will bid agaln«t the East for the privilege of marketing and consuming her MM** plus productions. r|iwnsivai ii it vamp otyeds. bee deetrote* ion againet the liver, aad TUG FERRY COCTROTERIY.

There is good occasion here perhaps for edi torial comment, but we forbear for the present, as the eommualcatioas are quite lengthy: PKI.I.A., Iowa, March 20, 187# BOTTOK BLAIK My attention has been called to a communication In the Kroxvllle Jolknal, and in justtae to tndself 1 deem It but proper, Ineatmioh as It reflects very inat«rially on me, that 1 make a brief explanation of tha fact* in the case: I believe that tba traveling pabtle. who Lave patronised uiy Hue between Pella Slid Kuoxvllla, will *a»«rt that I have ai *war»trfs& to adocapttndate ibem aad make tint trip aa pteaaant aa poaaiblel There are tlrn«a In the year, bownevpf, wlimi a trip from Pella to KnoxvtJle by ata|[e or otberwiae la anything but atrre* able, cither for paaaanger* or myself, mid at such times I notioe that tny utaaaenger trade lagroally Increased, and I am ex pneU«i to »rry passengers for the ssrno fsre Hint 1 |o vrhon the ron«1a are good, mid in thia the public have not beMi dis appointed, for 1, bare never raiaed tiu fsre on anouunt of bad roeda, ainea I knvo had the contract for carrying the mail itelwoen Pella mid Knoxville.

Now, I have always inform ed thoae who hsve a^ked for pasxage at aiivh time* s* trnnafer had lo be inad« at the river, that if they oould not walk across on the ice that they would be re •pilred to pay their own ferriage, and of this the Rav. gentleman from Knoxville waa fully aware, because when he twine over to Pells, a demand for ferriage wa# made and he refused to pay it. The driver having been to Sunday ttcbool several times during bla lifetime, re~ ff)entVred, bleaaed are ttie peace maker*," and made no further demand, but paid it out of the pittance allowed as fare, and informed tbe eoeleelastloal gen tleman that abould he return by his line and a transfer of bsggs«e and paseengers ww necessary, he might espeut to pny l)i|i own passage across the river. He aiclved asfely at Pella and quietly wend ed bla way to Oskaloosa, perhnps ou alericnl business, snd as quietly returned.

As to what occurred on my way to Pella. Mr. W. says that ademand was then made ea me for ferriage, which I refined te pay, and that it was paid by thednver out of "the Blermore, lttanee allowed seine:" and, fur that I waa taen notified that, on my return, I mast expect to pay my own ferriage ecreea the river. Now Mr. Willey was not at the river, and must have pram red his misinformation from hie hands. The frets are these. Mr. 8. K. Bellamy and Mr. William Gamble were my co-passengers on that trip. After we had crossed the river in the skiff, the driver or ferryman asked Mr. Bellamy for his ferriage, and he paid It. He then applied to Mr. Gamble for his, who, In substance, said that that was too thin to pay for fare and ferriage both, and declined. Mr. licUamy then made the party refund hit ferriage and no demand was made on tne of which I have any re memborance, Mr. Gamble** »efo»al nutting a stop to the whole thing. Xo uotice as to ferriage wn* given to any of us on that occasion but the one driver halloed to the other to tell the old man to notify pattseugers when they take their Heats, Nor did I rain*! the question As to the language, more expres sive than iMmutiful," indulged in hy his son towards me, its character and violence may tie infer re'I from the fact that hie swearing and abu*e waa audible to Mr. A. J. Hrigga and others, who were on t/ie J.her thm* the river. And Mr. Wiiley couvc nieutly suppresses all allusion to his threats and attempt at personal Vie* lence. 8. As to the solicited iiass." IJke all the rest, this is evidently designed to niisrepreweut. A friend of mine asked laat fall if Mr. Willey would make a reduction in his fare to me such as has been customary else where in the ca»e of minbterH, and I was informed that he would. Once since, I traveled over hi* line on the ordinary "round tri n" fare, the same charged to Mr. Waite ou the trip of tne assault, and tbo same obareetl to ail other* for round trips. But! have not asked him for any uouimutation since, and on my late trip paid him full fare both a ays, as he knows, without asking even his "round trip" deduction. Ho much for his "pass." He i« irate because i gave tiie facts of lite outrage for publication. He ought not to com plain. It was what his son challenged me to do. it will give an indication of the kind of abuse to which 1 was subjected from thoHon of this men who "always trie* to accomodate paasengers and to make their trip fileasant," «($» I ti te say that Whan Hn roads are alasost fmpwtibla aad a taass «nso( ba fsrrtsd suwius tbe riverso tfcalasieasfcr haatoba mada, an extrachwrB* wtU ba mads of twsnty-flra 8suts,aad aelass ttwrenrsreod gentleman 1** a pose (wfctsb has base sotMted), he WW be raqtrired to pay rt other folks #a, and w» bona thai ute neat Hint not so potsk will be aad* about it.

Of the we facts, oeotirr ing ou my out trip, Mr. Bellamy and Gamble nre competent and relia W i fl fW| 'M 2. As to the return trip, Mr. Will telh part of the truth part he con veniently suppruwHs.

Wiieu we rtmched the river, inetead uf being infonind that the ice waa safe, we wore told the exact contrary. And here a wortl al»oul that Ice.
