1st. The Stale doe% not pay "$00,000
interest yearly," not 2n4,
do Its "rad
ical officers" say hI* i-- out of debt.—
The people have »nld, however, upon
ascertaining her financial condition,
that she is practically out ef debt,
and lhat is just her poHiiiou.
The proper officers publish regular
reports of the State's financial con
dition, and theHe report* are as ac
cessible to Democratic journals as to
Col. Carpenter the General Assem
bly providing by law that they, with
all the other journals, Khali be fur
nished with a copy of the session
laws, to which is appended a full
statement of the finances. From
this sUtement we learn that on the
first day of November, 1W9 the close
of the last fiscal term, the State was
indebted in the sum of $3UU,000, be
ing the amount of what ih known as
the War and Defense Honds, on
which the State pays seven per went,
per annum interest. In addition,
the Uenerai Revenue Fund is indebt
ed to the School Fund in the sum of
$234,4{8.01, on which olght per cent,
interest is annually paid. (Of this
amount $122,(XH) represents the sum
placed in the State Treasury during
Ciov. Grimes' administration, to pre
vent its being squandered by Eads A
Co.'s Democratic management). Of
the bouds representing the latter
amounts Auditor Elliott v«ry proper
ly says, in his last report: "1 do not
consider tiiese bonds as State indebt
edness in the common acceptation of
the term. The interest only Is to be
paid, not lite principal—for the
School Fund belongs to the State as
much as the Reveuue Fund does."—

commenced teaching school iu his
native village, and he alternately
taught school, worked on a farm, and
attended as a student at Hartford
Academy. He afterwards went West,
I and arrived at Fort iodge, Jowa, in
June, 1854. At that time Fort Dodge
contained only the old Fort build

few inhabitants. Here he found
himself aiuoung entire strangers, a

five cents in his pocket. Ou the

We were to classify the

We once knew a Hungarian who

A Washington correspondent gives
what he regards as an insight Into a
great conspiracy. A movement has
been organized, he says, with Victo-*
ria C. Woodhull at its head, to work
upon Congress at tbe oomlng session
and secure the passage of a "Declara
tory act" affirming the right of wo
men to vote. He says there are a i
number of Senators and members of
Congress pledged to a warm support
of the movement, whose names,
when made public, will certainly as
tonish the community, Iu the Seri
ate, one of the most active, upright
aud progressive members of that
august body will have the matter in
charge. And the House of Repre
sentatives, if tbe members mean
what they say, Is charged with fe
male euffragism and declarations
enough to make it absolutely danger
ous. During tbe coming session of
Congress, in addition to the National
Female bulfrage Convention, there
will be iu session in Washingtou the
National Labor Convention, the Na
tional Spiritualists' Convention, and
meetings of the differeut sections of
the Internationels. All of theee or
ganization* will have their head
quarters at Mrs. Wood hull's palace.
WONDERS will never cease. Good
news comes from Ohio that salt wells
have been discovered in the old aud
supposed-tobe- finished Village of
Bradenburg, that not only furnish a
large supply of brine, but also gas,
more than sufficient to boil down the
brine, and ligtit up the town, while
the boiling progresses.
Halt is being produced there at a
cost of 60 cents per barrel. At lhat
rate tbe new Salt works can almost
oompete with Sunshine, at Turks

is a man out In Oregon who has a
mule. A few days ago he was driv
ing the animal across the prairie,
when it suddenly stopped. The
man left his wagon and attempted
to induce that mule to move on, but
without success. He beat it, he
