FRIDAS MORSISG, OCT. I!. 1838 Every regular attache of the Press is furnished with a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and hote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding sredcntials of every person claiming to represent our journal, as we have information that several “bum mers” are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas try, a party to such fraud ^ e do not read anonymous letters and communi cations.

In reply to the inquiries ol money bond holders and others interested in the Northern Pacific Railroad, Mr. Netlletor, the agent of the Trustees of the bond-holders, has written a circular giving the condition of the road as well as its future prospects as seen ny him. The company has built an equ pped 524 miles of road of which 228 1-2 miles are through Minnesota. 200 miles across the eas tern half of Dakota, to Bismarck ou the Mis souri river ami 105-J miles ot the Pacific di visiou extending from Kalama on the Colum bia to Tacoma on Puget Sound. In addition to this it is a joint owner of 24 miles ol track from Duluth west to Thompson Junc tion and controls by lease 131 miles of the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad ex tending from Thompson Junction to Min neapolis and-St. Paul, givi ig a total length of road operated by the Company of 140 miles. . In respec: to the frame connections oi tne portions already compleied. Mr. Nettleton say* that it has been the policy of the Com pany to make each se tiou completed as near ly independent of through connections as po.-sihie. so if the work is delayed at any point, the finished portions with allied lines would have a remunerative business. Accord ingly the eastern divls’on connects at Duluth with liues of steamers and the commerce of the lakes and the general railroad system of the country by the Minneapolis toad. At the crossing oi the Red river the road receives the trade of the new British Provinces, ana at Bismarck, the present termination, a eonnec ii m is made north and south by Missouri steamers, by which the Northwest is opened a thousand miles beyond the present termi nus of the road. The Pacific division is com plete within itself, and opens up a large trade along the Columbia river which it taps at Kalarna. Of the business of these several divisions it is only said that it meets the expectations of the Company’s officers and is fast increasing. On the part of the road already built and in no way dependent upon its completion, the Company have obtained a title of 10,732, 800 acres of land,.about half of which is in Dakota and the balance in Minnesota, Wash ington Territory and Oregon. Fifteen months since the Company made its first convey ance of laud, since which time 59,353 acres have been sold, exclusive of tracts aggregat ing 200,000 acres selected by colonies and par tially reserved. The average price of land i sold has been $5 48 an acre. At this rate, lands already earned would produce about $55,000,000, or double the cost of the road now completed. It is not probable that this sum will he realized for the lands, though the officers of the Company profess to believe that it will. The progress of the settlement of the country along the road is indicated by thn fact that between one and two thousand car leads of wheal will he carried to market where two years ago breadstuffs were import ed by the residents. The wheat brings a good cash price delivered on the line of the road, and the settlers aie reported to he satisfied. So much for the condition of the road and its prospects. Mi. Nettlelon next gives bis attention to the bonds of the road and attempts to satis fy the doubt as to the value of these securities. He states that all the Company’s property including its franchise, road, rolling stock and lands fs mortgaged to two trustees who repre sent the holders of the bonds. In view of this fact and the value of the road and its lands, the agent concludes that there is no occasion for the bondholders to become alarmed iu the present panic and sacrifice their investment by throwing the bonds on the market in its present condition. All the property pledged for t^ie reJe option of the securities of the road still exists and is ample. Its stockhold. ers and officers are men of experience and wealth and a resolute effort will be made to meet every obligation to bondholders and oth ers and prosecute the work another year. The trustees believe that every department of the service ol the road is managed with ecouo „ my and faithfulness. In respect to the payment of the interest on the bonds of the road due in January, the agent makes no prediction only stating, in re ferring to the fact that in the inter veiling time, the Company will have time to mate new fi nancial arrangements with a view to meeting its obligations promptly. Of course Mr. Nettletoti takes a cheerful view of the situation and shows the future in as favorable light as he can by a presentation of facts; but if the Company proposes to en hance the value of its bonds and rescue them from the present uncertainty, it must not fail to pay its January interest promptly. A:i Obvious Moral. The little city of New Brunswick. N. J., has just been the scene of a terribly destruc ive and instructive disaster. The State Bank there was „n institution of the highest possi ble character, and for very many years its name was the synonym for safety iu invest ment and integrity in dealing. About a dozen years ago the spirit of Young America in vaded the Board of Directors, and some of the members wished to make money faster by shaving notes in Wall street, rather than ac commodating tradesmen in their own county. The cashier, who had been a leading influ ence in the bank for thirty years, remon strated in vain. He pointed to their already large semi-annual dividends in cash, and their occasional large dividends in stock,to show that their safe way of doing business, and accom modating the people for whose accommoda tion the bank was chartered, was profitable enough. But Young America triumphed drove the cashier out of the bank, and re versed the policy of the institution. The dis carded cashier was, in 1864, made President of the National Bank of New Jersey, in the same city, then a weak and uncertain rival of the State Bank. Under the rule of “safety first, profit secondary,” which he introduced, the National Bank has steadily risen, until it now stands in the same high position which the State Bank once held. The State Bank steadily declined until a few weeks ago, when it was suddenly discovered that the new cashier and his confederates had plundered the bank of about one million of dollars, the capital, the surplus, and eveu deposits and ne gotiable bonds on special deposit.. The direc tors were by law personally liable, and there fore cheaply won the credit of great and noble generosity by stepping forward and giving from their private fortunes toward making up the deficit; thus inducing stock holders, who were not liable, to make volun tary contributions. It is a comfort to know that some of the directors who were of the original Young America party that reversed the honorable policy of the bank, have been thus in the stern court of Providence mulcted in the sum of hundreds of thousands. At the pres?nt rate, the exports of the country the present year will exee d those of 1872 in the sum of $141,000,000, while the im ports will be nearly $50,000,000 3hort oftbose of last year; so that when the figures are made up on the last day of December, the foreign imports of the country will be less than $600,000,000, while ils exports, exclusive of specie, will exceed $650,000,000 Thus the country changes the balance of trade tvbxh was against us in 1872 to the amount oi $100,000,000, to $60,000,000 in our favor. The result is as marvelous as it is satisfac tory. A political party is not responsible for crimes of officials it lias placed in position, except so far as it shields them from punish mout and defends them as the Democracy of New York did the Tammany Ring. We made this remark to a Democrat who was dilating upon Republican corruption as shown by the recent stealing by the cashier of the New York Treasury. As some other parti san may be using this same case, it may be well for him to know that Mr. Raines, the State Treasurer, who appointed this man Phelps, left the Republican party last year, and is now the Democratic candidate for that office. Phelps, a Fentonite, was thrown out of the Custom House by Collector Murphy several jfears since for disreputable conduct. If the gentleman who made an arithmeti cal argument against foreign missions the other evening in New York, could have read one of our contemporaries which associated a discussion of the rather impracticable ques tion of the resurrection or non-resurrection of the body with “coffee and pistols for two”, he would doubtless have changed his base of attack and urged that the evidences of igno rance and depravity at home demand that effort in this direction be restricted to our own country. It has got to come;” indeed before this item appears it will probably have come—that speechof Andy Jo., son,which has lain on bis political stomach the last four years like a breakfast of sausage and bard boiled eggs on the stomach of a chronic dyspeptic. His friends at the national capital have tendered him a serenade, and the old gentleman is said to be loaded to the lips with one ol his old 22d of February speeches. As there is no law against it, the public must submit. At one o'clock this morning nothing had been received to solve the doubt respecting the election in Ohio. The indications, how ever, are that the venerable Allen will fiud occupation in the Executive office of Ohio, and will not have time to fill a contract to supply the Rhode Island coast with a fog ■horn. The Democratic journals can bring out their chanticleers over this wonderful piece of second adventism performed by the Ohio Democracy. At the meeting of the Free Religionists in New York, Wednesday evening, James Par ton advocated the taxation of church prop erty, fncludiug sectarian schools. He claimed that such property should be taxed on the same ground as any other, for in the case of the destruction ot any one ot these churches by a mob, the city would be obliged to tax the other property to pay the damage done to “dead-head” property. Hon. James W. Nesmith, the newly elected Congressman from Oregon, is a na tive of Maine and a man ot character and ability. During the war he served as United States Senator from that State and was con spicuous as a patriotic war Democrat, serv ing on the Military Committee. He has been thirty years a resident of Oregon. The Rockland Free Press takes occasion to sharply criticise the charge of Chief Jus tice Appleton in the Mink murder case, on the ground of its being an argument tor the State and because he “indulged in inferences and hypotheses rather than an explanation of the law.’’ The Belfast Age believes that Mr. Carey’s policy of protection will lead to the resump tion of specie payments in the proper time, if Congress will but supply the “oil of com merce”—which we take to be more green backs. Sold dropped down to 107 5 8 yesterday, which is the lowest price since June 21st 1862, the sixth month after the suspension of specie payments. Current Notes. The San Francisco News Letter impolitely alludes to Mr. Joaquin Miller as “the long hailed, greasy howler of ibe Sierras,” and ridicules his attempt to pass himself off upon the English public as an (ex) bead man among the Modoc?. A Modoc chief would hardly deign to eat out of the same dish with him, it says. The Philadelphia North American says: “What we want is not a foreign market for our produce, but an in-reased home market. We jeed not diminish our crops. There are thousands at the South who never eat wheat bread because it is beyond the.r reach. Theie are other thousands who cannot get even corn bread, a d therefore eat clay. For these the grand civiiizer roust be the railway, ami by that agency the West must send its grain to the South to feed those who raise cotton, tobacco, rice, sugar, hemp, aud who make tar, pitch, turpen'ine, resin, and who gather sumac or work in the factories.” A series ot cancatures now popular in Vienna represents the Austrian idea of the besetting sins of the great powers. Prussia, a haughty dame resting upon a sword, rep resents Pride; England is a scrawny female seated on a cotton bale, and is called Ava rice ; Russia goes skating and scowling by under the name of Envy; Turkey lols on a sofa, a fit odalisque, as Luxury; France, with a man’s hat iu one hand and a glass of champagne in the other, dances a decollete cancan, and is called Immodesty; Spain is a wild Petroleuse, and repiesents Anger; Scot land is a bonny lass, dropping to sleep on a mountain sidej as Laziness; America sits on a pile of Pub. Docs., scribbling furiously, and the iniquity she repiesents bears the uncanny name oi “Zeitungschreiberei.” In these days when banks have to sustain so many breaches of trust, it is no wonder that they occasionally announce themselves as suspenders.— Worcester, Mass, Press. We always took great delight in Mr. Cur tis's “Easy Chair” in the Harper's Magazine, but we never knew before exactly what he did to it. We have some light on that point from the Chicago Advance, which speaks of “the Easy Chair, which he has gilded with graceful renown.” The trope is a trifle con fusing.—Springfield Republican. A lively verbal warfare is going on between the Winnemucca Register and the Unionville Silver State, both published in Nevada. The latter paper, after severely reflecting on the paternity of the editor of the former, says that he is a hunchback ape who can’t write his own name without wiping his nose with his tongue. A cringing, debased, and decrep it wretch, whom, had be even the semblance of a human being, we would kick publicly through the streets of Winnemucca. I believe all historians will hereafter admit that the policy of the bold and well-planned attempt to seize hold of the power of the United States to promote slavery was almost the greatest escape civilization has ever had. —Mr. Forster. The Chicago Times, which has been called Democratic, says: “That eminently servile organ of a putrid reminiscence, the World i of New York, enumerates a few of what it calls the “popular delusions of last Novem ber.’ ” Senator John Sherman, of Ohio, expresses his view of the proper policy to be pursued by the Republicans in Congress, as follows: Reduction of the Congressmen’s salary to $5,000 ; measures to reduce the cost of trans portation ; the reduction of taxes: retrench ment in expenditures; and the adoption of measures to raise our paper money to the specie standard. It seems to us that Mr. Murray is carrying the horse business a little too far. He may be devoting the proper degree of attention to the duties of his sacred calling, 8u* we can not help thinking that the Gospel has, at least during the present reason, played second fiddle to the horse.—New London Telegram. It is hardly safe, nowadays, to name a mountain or a baby after a man, till he is dead. He may embezzle or take back pay, or become a dreadful railway autocrat, or a candidate for the presidency, then you’ll wish you hadn’t-done it.—Grace Greenwood. A Terrible Affair—A Lesson to Collegians. —The telegraph, several days since, made brief mention of the death of Mortimer Leggett, son of the United States Commissioner of Patents, and a student at Cornell University. From de tails recently received it appears that young Leggett was undergoing the ceremonies of ini tiation into a coliege secret society, the Kappa Alpha Fraternity. The members of this society gathered on the banks of a creek a little out side the village, and Leggett, the candidate for initiation, was blindfolded and subjected to the usual ceremonies, which appear to have been rough and err el. While they were in progress, Leggett and the two young men who had him m charge fell over the brink of the precipice into a gorge fifty feet below. There they were found by their companions, Leggett with his skull fractured, and the other two seriously and possibly fatally injured. Leggett lived about half an hour after the fall. Sagrdahoc County Fair. There were very many people present on the third day of the Sagadahoc County Fair, many drawn by a desire to hear President Allen’s ad dress, but more assembled to witness the horse trotting.

It was couched in the form of an appeal to farmers to perfect themselves in the theory as well as prac tice of their profession; to pay more attention to the constituents of the soil and to the fertili ers proper for differing crops, for differing soils and for differing conditions of the same soil. He spoke of the necessity of teaching yonng farmers agricultural chemistry, and looked for ward confidently to the time when an examina tion of the soil of a given locality will tell us what crops it is best suited to and what ferti lizers are indicated for use. The address abounded in practical suggestions, and was well received by the large audience. At its conclusion, the trol, open to all horses owned in Maine, was called. The already large crowd on the ground was augmented by visitors from Portland, Augusta, Lewiston and other places, anxious to witness what promised to be an exciting trial of speed. Fully 6000 persons were upon the grounds. Iu the stallion race, for a purse of $160, White Stocking, Bumpus and King William were en tered. The latter was taken sick and with drawn, and White Stocking won in 2.44. In the second race, for a purse of $80, Slasher, Dwarf and Little Fred were entered, Dwarf winningfin 3.02f. The trot concluded the exercises proper of the Fair. But a grand blow-out took place in the evening in the shape of a ball. The at tendance was very large, and the occasion one of great enjoyment to the devotees of Terpsi chore. It may not be out of place to remark that the flying hoars were chased with glowing feet. Divorce Annulled.—In the case of Louisa P. Holmes, petitioner, vs. Samuel L. Holmes, which has been on trial in the Supreme Court at Alfred, Judge Peters ou Thursday gave the following decision: “Upon all the evidence ad mitted it was considered by the Court that the original decree was fraudulently obtained, and as a matter of law should be set aside, and it is thtreupon ordered that the said decree be set aside and annulled.” The case was ably argu ed by lion. John M. Goodwin for petitioner, and W. H. Clifford, esq., for respondent. One of the Tricks.—The Kew York Jour nal of Commerce says ou Saturday last Mrs. Claik, a daughter of Commodore Vanderbilt, went into bankruptcy. This relieved the Com modore from protecting her 30,000 shares of Lake Shore and other stock at possibly 90 or 91. and also warned connecting firms that he would not assist them. It was supposed on the street that Mr. Vanderbilt preferred buying those stocks under the rule at 60 or 62, and gaining the difference of some 30 per cent., when the stock should be forced up to 90.
