'The eminent nation, of the de ceased, his high '.character his long career ia the -service of Lis state, and of the Union, his , devotion to the caaso of freedom, and the abil ty he brought to the discharge of every doty, stand conspicuous and are indelibly Impressed In. the hearts aad affections of the Amer ican people. y "In testimony of respect for the dlstiagalshed citizen sod . faithful public servant, the . various depart ments of the government will be closed 'cn' the day of 'the funeral, and the executive mansion and all .the execntlve departments in Wash ington will be draDed with bd?es of mourninsr for thirty days.

" . Signed . '."U.S. Grant." ' . '. . Tin: woi;t . vam.ky ,Tbe proceedings, tn - otir local pae, of the proceedings of the' di rectors of thValnut., Valley rail- road, on ".Tuesday, show that' the movement tJ build a road from Kmporia to Arkansas City is rapid ly taking shape' and (sobHtance. ,A Preaideut,' Vice-President, Treasur er,' and Secretary, were dnly elect- ted; ajhrvey ordered, and subscrip tion books are to be at once opened all along the r9Ute leaving 4-he peo- pi to decide by their subscripUon which kind of gauge they prefer. The books will be arranged so that Iboao who prefer narrow gange shall subscribe for 4 hat, aud those who prefer standard gauge for that kind: This applies the generally approved tesrr that those who fur nish the money shall decide how it Is to be used.' While the directors differ in opinion as to the gaugeof the road, we are satisfied that they are all decidedly id , fafor'-of a rail road being built over the proposed rotta at t,he earliest practicable day. Their proposition to build it If the people "Vflll extend aid at the rate of ($ 2,500 per mile, is made in good earnest, and. there Is no reasonable doubt but that that amount of aid woich is moderate, will secure a roid. We feci sure of this for the reason that if it does not bring about the building of a narrow gaoge road, that it will secure the extension of the Carbondale road. The directors of that- company are rcajiand aLlo-lo push- (heir rosd on to Emporia and down the Wal- nut Valley, It given aid io that amount. They are. now extending it from Carbondale to Osage City for no greater inducement, and have offers .out this side or Osage City to keep on with the extension at the same rato of aid. We repeat therefore, that it is safe to expect and rely upon the speedy building of a railroad from Kmporia to Arkansas City, if the people extend aid at the rato asked for by the Walnut Valley railroad dlreotors $2,500 per mile. The matter is therefore - really in the hands of the people along the route, and what they have to do to tret a road is simply not to hesitate or cavil about tho matter, -but extend the aid, either by private subscrip tions or public funds. The aid will bring the road, and the lack of the aid . will defeat the road. This mnch certainly has been arrived at, and the people therefore, can see ' jussvrhat to do; : :i . 'in regard to the Carbondale rail road, more correctly called . the St. Louis, Lawrence and Southwestern railroad,: we believe-it, . to be, a de sirable road forubotlr. Erapoiia and the Wlut Valley io secure, and that it would be a permanent com potiog Hue with both the M. K. & T. and the A, T. & S. P. road The choice of tbe'peopTe evidently now lies . between that road and a nar row, gauge. . We believe their fu ture Interests would be best subserv ed by a uarrow gauge from Arkan sas City Ma 'Emporia and Ottawa to Kansas City, and thence to SI. Louis, but the Walnut Valley is in a hurry for a road, and can no doubt get the. Carbondale road - quicker than f it, can get ny other road, if Cutler and Cowley counties can tinder the present law, vote the amount of aid required of them. l'ste I alivtl Hiatf Armr. . The annual report of Gen. Shermn after slatsng geographical limits of vaticros deriartoaonls says- The aggregate strength of the line of army according to the last re ports received is 1,540 officers and 21,031 enlisted men made up as fol lows: ..

Iodlans is believed to be less during ihopas't year than In any former year. 4 j The prospect is that as "the coun try settles up It will be less and less each year until all the Indians are established on small 'reservations, but until they acquire habtts of In dustry In farming or Jo .stock . rai sing they will need food from the general government, because the game which they have hitherto sub. sisted upon has diminished' very rapidly. . France .proposes 'to. present the United' States 'with" a collosa bronzs. statue of Liberty, 109 feet high. Its head radiating streams of light at night, if'the people of this country - will provide, a suit able stone pedestal 100 feet high, and be set op In 'New York harbor, for the statute to stand upon. It is a magnificent enterprise, and In tended to . commemorate' Centen nial year. There has been a beip 'o much of the following kind cf patrio tism In this country. A member of the Arkansas legis lature in pronouncing a panegyric upon his deceased colleague. Col. Yell, of Vellville, said pathetically ': "When my distinguished colleague's voice was last heard In this hall, it was on the accasion of the suspen sion of the Yellville Bank. My colleague, Mr. Speaker, did not, when- explaining his connection with 'that 'institution, acoount for all the funds in his possession, but sir, his remarks showed that his heart beat . wjurmly for his native laatf." - - " j The value of commercial itatis Ucs was shown in the exposure of the Stl Louis whisky ring. It came about in this way : Mr. Colo ney, commercial editor of the Dem ocrat, in compiling his review of the trade of.St."Lou)8,'lfound that the amount or whisky whlcn en tered into the commerce of the city was vastly In' excess of the amount returned as made. fie was ap pointed a secret revenue agent and had to compile the statistics of the entire bnsiness of St. Louis, so as to prevent bis object being known Mia figures net only disclosed the fraud, but the distilleries . and houses eozsjred in it. Thus was this most formidable combination overthrown. . Every city ought to keep correct statistics of its trade transactions. Coat f 1'eaclBB. We find in the report of the" iiro ceedlosrs of. the Agricultural Soci ety of Kansas, for 1873, a report of which we take some ex&racts: Mr. Kelsey says that he linds the cash value of the annual larni products of the United States to be $2,450- 000.000. while the value of all live stock of every description is $659,- 211.033. or about $800,000,000 lesa than the value of farm products To orotect this, near two and a half billions of growing crops, and a little over two. hundred and fifty million acrea of ground have beeu fenced in at a cost of S1.71S.520.185. or about ninety ' millions or dollars above the value of live stock. The annual cost of repairs of these fen ces is nearly three hundred millions of dollars. But this is not all. It Is estimated that the fences them selves occunv one-fiftieth of the land fenced in, which is so much waste. For every dollar's worth of livestock we have in the United States -we have 'expended one dol lar and six cents in fencing to pro tect one dollar and forty-seven cents' worth of growing crops, This is kept up at an annual ex pense 25 per. cent in tho cost of re pairs, interest and loss of land The reader' will ' remember that these figures are not mere puess work, but . compiled from otlicial tables by the best elatisticiahes in the country.

A tray -wlfli the Medium A Prof. Baldwin is traveling around outdoing the spiritualists in wonderful performances, aud claiming that he. does it all by mere slight of ' hand aud stage trickery, and that they nee similar .means He gave an entertainment Friday evening last in Kansas Citv, and for the edification of people inclin ed to believe in spirits, we clip this much of the Daily Journal's ac count of the show : A committee of four gentlemen was selected. All were well known citizens.-' After- a comical game of hide-and-seek with a nickel in a handkerchief, be hantled each one ot the committee a tumbler, aud also produced an earthenware pitcher for examination, lie then produced wine and water at will, and the audience were much amu eed. . . . Mrs. Clara Baldwin was then in trodoced. She is a pleasant ap Deannar vounsr lady, and acts as stasre manager for her husband du rinsr tho cabinet" Seances. Mr. E. C. H.aller, the p.rofessoris assistutit, was also , introduced.. lhe two gentlemen - took their 6eMB in the eabinet, which was tharoughly ex amined by the committee. The committee took ropes, and each did .his best to tie these young men so they could not assist the spirits in producing the chaos 'of sounds that usually proceed l.om a cabinet during a Spiritual seance, the doors were closed, and almost Instantly bells were heard riuginjj, 1 the .tambourines sounded, hands were' shown at the Opening, aud ev erything was done that the Daven ports 'accomplished in their double seance. The doors were opened and ;.theperformerg were Jound tied as at first. The doors were closed again ' closed, aud 'after a apseof a few minutes tae professor land his assistant stepped, upon the platform untied.' The cabinet scenes were truly wonderful, and we venture the as sertion that the audience, together with their elected committee of ex aminers, were completely at a loss to account for them. No descrip tipp we can give will, do justice to the subject, but we cannot resist tho inclination to give one scene t'.at was not only pnzling, but quite amusing. ' The Professor' was tied feccurcly in hi chair with strong ropes, by all of the committee, and his hand, feet and elbows were also securely Tastened in the same way, each man struggling to make the - knots thor oughly secure. They occupied several minutes in perfecting their work. The knots were also sealed with wax so no movement could be made.1 One of the committee was then placed In a'chair in the cabinet with the Professor, with his back to him, but holding him securely by the knees. The door was closed and the nproar bosun. Tambou 1 fines, fish horn, dinner bells, rattle 00ie,8 "uu. lue i'Pll!"cc(j oi a I Pandemonium setmed ioiued in a colossal effort to destroy the com mittee, man, but. upon opening the doors there sst-lhe Professor, tied in the same position, with the com mitteeman in his chair holding his companion by the knees and a tam bourine balanced ou his head, look ing for all the world like the Mi kado of Japan or some other public functionary. In connection1 with this trick the Professor put on a coat belonging to a gentleman present, while tied and in the cabinet, aud then, allow ing his wife to socurely sew it in front, and also to sew the sleeves together, the doors were closed aad. the medium took off the gar ment without breaking a stitch, to the astonishment of all present. After this came a few clever tricks, wbeu Mrs. Baldwin entered the cabinet at the conclusion of the above and performed the final trick of the evening, viz., duplica ting the performance of Katie Kin g and of the Eddy Brothers, which was exceedingly, wonderful, she be ing securely fastened to the end of the cabinet by her neck. Faees and forma appeared and talked, and finally Katie King wal ked1 but on the stage.' This was a stumper, and discounted the best feats of the well known mediums. .tIioi'liiirtl and Kan A OI4 Debt Ier One 1 f-oX"i"l ty or ttae Ftn. A lloXon Enlrrprle-TbeA(h. I.n, 1'oprUu V rsAE.ta. S-'e liallr-uiui. Correionloiiee cf the Boston Journal. Topka. Xov. 15, 1S75. Politically, Kansas owes much to Massachusetts. No sister of this union oi'st&tes did so much to help uk in our c-ai-lv stru;?r!e8 asrainst our eiifctnie over the border. That K&iiiiis came into tha Union a free State i3 duo largely to the timely and staunch support which was candered bv the irrnd old com monwealth whose oil was earnest consecrated by patriot blood, and which has always bec-n foremost jn freedom' cause. We can never foryet nor rcnav our debt, lut ll we were in auy danger of forget liner the oast, wo have within our State a constant reniicder that we owe our wonderlul growth anu orosperity to Massachusetts, as cer tainly as we do our first triumphs. Let me speak througn your columns briefly, first concerning this pros perity ana then ot mat io-iiou en terprise wmcn nas oeen io greai degree the c -use of it, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe IUilroad. lbe war gave a chect to emigra tion in Kansas as io all other States, but in 1S70 we bad a population of 304,231. In 1S71 we bad a popula tion of 530, 307, an increase oi near ly 4: per, cent, in me lour years, We have now moro msm iw,irju. The number of acie3 under culti vation in 1S73 was 3,031,957. In 1S74 it was 3,CC9,io!J, showing an in crease ot 21 per cfui. iii a biugic vpr.'

I have spoken ot our growth as a State, and have intimated that tec railroad is largely me cause oi it Kansas is culy one of many proofs of the saying of an eminent political economist, tnai -rauroaus create States." We have a perfect net work of roads over our eastern counties, and these counties are the moat thickly settled, liut we have two roads, aud only two, crossing the whole length of the btate, the Kausas Pacific and the Atchison Topeka aud Santa f?c. lheyare ahuurcd miles apart, iiie lormer runs through tho northerly part of Kansas to Denver, tho latter from the northwest corner, southward and westward to Pueblo iu Col orado. I shall speak uow only of the latter, as I suppose your readers will naturally ba more interested in its affairs since, as I have 'said, it is almost wholly a Boston enterprise, Boston capital built it aud Boston men manage it. Tho President of the :C0inpany' Thoniis Nickcrson Esq., was aud is one of tho most successful ship managers of your famous port, aud is managing this ship of tho priirio with consum mate 6kill. Tho Vice Prebident Francis II. Peabody, Esq., is one ot your most successful bankers. The Directors are, nearly all of them men well kuowu ia your citj', and eminent for their enterprise and success. AW are glad ttiat au in stitntion of so much magnitude and such vital importance to our State is under trie control of audi men They have a splendid piece of property here. Their land grant is almost the last one made by Con grcs", and without boasting it may be said to be the best. They have nearly three mil. ion acres o the most fertile land in this Slate, which as a whole, leads all othe States in productiveness1, (see Uni ted States Agricultural llcporls. Their road is completed and is earning enough to pay the interest on its bonds. The net earnings of August wero $100,000 and those ot September and Octobpr so far sur pass the estimates. Even ia the dreadful "rasn-hopper" year tho net li-pppinta of thfl road Wfre Sfilfi 8f0. and the returas so far. render it quite certain that they will exceed 57oO,000 this year. The Company has, besides what it leases, 510 miles of road, having extended over the western line ot Kausas to Grauada, Colorado, and the purpose is to push i'.i. ugh'to Pueblo this fall Thu ti traffic of Southern Colo rado ;uid of New Mexico will be secured to this road. This exten tiou which is now being built will bo of incalculable value to the Com pany and also to the Siate, giving us a ready market for our produce among the mining regions of Col orado, and bringing us coal of bet ter qnality aud at lower prices. It seems to us here that the luture of this road is one of very great promise. Wc aia contLleiit that no railroad enterprise in the We6t has brighter prospects; and we aieelad that Boston men are to be the reapers of this rich Lai vest. They deserve success; they have earned it by houotaolc dealing and hone?t work. Both the Leg islature of Knuaas and the Con gress of the United Siaies cin aud do testify that tho Campany has kept the spirit aud the letter of ail its engagements. But while the Company has made a profitable invest incut for itself, it has done a work of in calculable benefit for Kaunas. It has brought us people by the thousand, ane has ciu-cd farms and vilages to multiply. The section of the State which it parses through tha valleys of tic Cottonwood and Arkansas rivers is wonder fully attractive to settlers. While the average of the increase in the State iu population was 1 per ccnte along the Hue of the AtcbUon, To peka and Santa Fe Bailroad the In crease was more than CI percent., And whilo the average iucrea&e in acreage of cultivation iu 1S71 was 21 per cent., along this , line the in crease war 30 per cent.," not reckon ing the new counties, in which t was much larger. The Company had sold between March 1, 1S75, and January 1, 1S75, 451,007 acres of its lands, at au avcrageprice of $5.17 per acre. The sale of 1S74 alone amounted to 200,l-'9 acres. Of tho purchasers 4C1 came from Illinois. SO from lows, r2 from Ohio, 50 fruin Indiana, 30 from Massachusetts, 23 from Michigan, 22 from Wisconsin, and 327 from foreign countries.-direct. There were 1260 purchers, and they took on an average 1G0 acres each. The terms are very favorable to meu of smalt meaus, and still more so to those who can pay cash. The pol icy of tha company is to get the lands settled and improved, aud thus Increase the business of the road, rather than to make money out of the lands. Besides the com- nifiv'a land lAtre is ma oi iuo . . . . i . r il Government, equtally good and con venient to tne roaa. mucn oi wcicu the road has helped and is helping to settle. Kansas never made a better in vestment than when it cmSrincd the grant of Congress to ibis com pany, and she knows it. She gave much to Boston, bat she has alrea dy got more than she gave, and her revenna will increase lorau ume th come. Kansas is to be congrat ulated that she was able -to offer such an iuducement to captlalists, and Boston has given another proof of its wisdom by its investment here. Massachusetts and Kansas politically are sisters, financially are partuers. Call ns the Junior partner, if yon pleose; our profits out of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe IUilroad are large enough to satisfy ns, and that is saying a good deal for the road.

They all seem ed to appreciate the fact that a railroad down the Walnut Valley was a lore gone concluslfNuv There were no ifa or anus about it. , Aa we Intimated in our last fsue,tbe'only question to de cide was from what point should this road, becojtetructed.. .The discussions were lonjr and animated and' lasted for At tha doKA nlciha mtintr It n determined" to organize a compan for the construction of a railroad from Emporia, via Svcamore, Chelsea, Eldo rado,' A'uusla' Douglas, Rock, Win field nd Arkansas City to' the State line on the sooth,--with the following gentlemen as Directors ; Lyon County P.

The question of a narrow, or stand ard gauge road was left to be decided In the future. ' "' ' Ilad the peopl of Emporia united upon a feasible plan for the const ruc tion of the road, we presume it would have been-adopted. -Their proposition that the- people -6 boo H construct and own the-road after it was built, did not meet with general, favor. Emporia is divided as to what should be done to secure the road. Her delegates came to us with nothing hut talk. We had na pledges from Etn porla as to what heritiaenswoulado, and- therefore, no ctenjfeite laa waa united upon. There was LtimeTthat if Emporia fiddled the .Walnut Valley . danced. This order bTtbfnga is reversed. If Emporia means -frtiiej, let ber people aay ichat iA?y eM do. We are going to have a railroad down this val ley. next . yeiav While - Emporia is quarreling over what she .wants, the Carbondale A Osage City road will go to Burlington' and the. Walnut Valley road will make its connection else where. - - .When the people of Emporia arte upon a proposition which is feasible aad will back it up With money and bond, we will be pleased to loin hands with them and go to work. We in the yalley have money and bonds and credit, and are willing wad anxious to ro to work, and use then to sec are a railread, - - - ;' The people ot our vail ev sxe In earn est and will not ceas their efforts un til they get a railroad. The Directors of the Atchison. To peka & Santa Fc road were not author ized to make as a Dronosition.

The Junction City Union demands the passage of a herd law applying to the entire State. It looks as if there would be a big fight in the next legis lature, on this question, and some very lively dodging on the part of sundry members who want to remain popular with both sides. The sheriff ot Labette county is in receipt of a letter fromnBafmon City, Idaho, which satisfies him that Old Bejder committed suicide iu that place last Augiiit. The funeral of R. R.

Mr. Ed. Hutchinson, supposed to have mysteriously disappeared lrom Lawrence, has been discovered peace ably selling real estate in Humboldt The question of the apportionment of the state will be the most interest ing subject bsfore the Legislature this winter. I lie greatest cnange will be in the representation in the Senate. The west will gain largely and many of the eastern counties lose. Leaven worth will lose one Senator, Atchison ore and Douglas one, whilo the dis trict represented by 11. C. Stf. Clair will be nivided into four districts Leavenworth will lose at least three ol her seven representatives, and Doug las will lose one and perhaps two. Johnson and Linn will each lose one representative. In the Senate the east has the power to fix the matter to suit tnemselves, but in tue House the west has the power to prevent un aujust dis crimination. J lie organization of the House is likely to turn on this qucs tlon. Prof. A. C.
