Maishall: J. C. Hamilton. Albert Scheffer,
True 8. White, E. M. Van Dervee, J. J. Mc

RECEIVING THE PIIES1DENT.
The committee appointed to arrange for the
reception of the President and party met at the
chamber of commerce yesterday, Gen. Smley
presiding. It was resolved to invite the army
officers, the fire department and the vanous
civic societies to join in the reception. The

THE SIME FAIR AND CONTRIBUTION BOX.
A lady prominently connected with one ot
our city churches applied to an officer of the
fair for a booth at which to sell articles ot
various descriptions lor the benefit of the
church. The gentleman aBked her $150. This
sum fhe thought to high, and protested that
the object ot the enterpuse ought to commend
it to consideration, and insure a lower figuie.
"Madame," said the gentleman, "in my official
capacity I am obliged to adhere to the figures
set by the board ot trustees but in order to
show you that individually I appreciate youi
enterprise, I will pledge you my honor that
eveiy time 1 go to church I will place a dollar
bill in the contribution box. and when my
wife accompanies me I will give 82." Thepossible,and
lady paid the 9150 demanded, but discovered
shortly afterwards, much to her sorrow, that
the omVer who promised so libeially had not
been within chinch doors for eighteen yearB.
1HE FAIRMONT HUNT.
A letter to Seererary Judson, from Mr.
Aithur Lyon, mastei of the Fairmont hunt,
states that he and the other gentlemen of the
hunt to participate the hurdle racing, cross
country sports, etc., of the State fair, will leave
the Wednesday preceding the fair for St. Paul.
The gentlemen ot the hunt bring their own
saddle hoises, hounds, boat and othei paraphei
nalia foi the diffeient sports in which they pr
pose to engage.
STOCK 1ROM WISCONSIN.
A letter from R. Ogden, the great breeder of
Madison, Wis., to Secretary Judson, of the
State Agricultural society, says he will have
three car loads of stock, hoises, sheep and
swine, for the fair. I leave Monday foi
Canada, wheie I expect to meet some stock
from England and Scotland in the sheep and
hoise line. They were fiist royal winners
England this year, and will, if they meet with
no mishap in coming, be sate and suie winners
in this country. While Canada I will add
some to my importations from the old country,
so that by the time we get all of our stock to
gether and begin to unload you will think
have come foi all the money you are offering."
The matter of accommodations for the thou
sands of people ho will be in St. Paul fau
week, has been placed in the hands of W. D.
Rogers. Persons who aie willing to accommo
date one or more persons, with rooms or board,
or both, are requested to communicate with
Mr. ltogeis at once, so that he may be able to
make a calculation as to what other accommo
dations will be required. No city in the North
west is so well supplied with hotels as St. Paul,
but they will be entirely inadequate for the
rush fair week, and every citizen who pospiblj
can should open his house tor the entertain
ment of the stranger "within our gates."
A gentlemen, recently returned from Indi
ana, says that the enthusiasm aroused by the
State fan is something beyond compaiison.
Excursion parties have been oiganized in all
directions iiom the sections named. The
whole talk was about the State fair and how to
get there. The influx of visitois from the di
rection indicated will be something immense.
MAUD MURDOCH'S VENGEANCE.

The main interest developed in the munic

the culprits of the stabbing affray at Maggie
Morse's on the previous evening, as detailed
ye-iteiddj'b GLOBE. The immediate circum
stances causing the cutting need not be par
ticularized, but it would seem that the girl,
Maud Muidock, had abundant leason to be
come angiy, although her use of the
kmlc w.i* unjustifiable. Rose, the man
assailed, whose leal name is Rosenblatt, a
traveler for a Chicago wholesale house, went
to the house with the evident intention ot get
ting the women drunk. In the process, he
himself succumbed, and so acknowledged be
fore tho court. His obtustication was o ex
treme that he knew nothing ot the stabbing he
experienced, and his prevarication was
so transparent that the court fined
him 5 and costs. Maud's case,
on motion other attorney, was continued until
this morning, and she was committed in de
fault ot ijjsl5U bail.
David Bairett, whose assault upon and rob
beiy of Samuel Schultz has been previously
noted in the GLOBE, was committed to await
the action ot the grand jury.
The balance ot the docket consisted of mat
ters of little interest.

Hon, James Middleton, of Washington
County, Mattes'a Good Showing-for an
Off YearLar^e Yields Reported From
the Northern Pacific Country.
Hon. James Middleton, of Woodbury, Wash
ington county, has completed threshing Ms
grain, and certainly has no reason to find fault
with the return he has received, considering the
season. Mr. Middleton, believing that a change
of seed would be beneficial, last spring pro
cured a car load of Canada Club wheat, grown
in the vicinity of Hamilton. Of this he sowed
thirty bushels upon a few rodR less than twen
ty acres of land, by actual measurement.
From this field he has just threshed 565 bush
els of wheat weighing 56 pounds to the bush
el, machine measure, a Meld of 28J bushels
to the acre. His field of White Fife, some on
equally good land and as well prepared, yielded
twenty-two bushels, weighing fifty-four and a
half pounds to the acre, while his Lost Nation
only yielded twenty and a half bushels, weigh
ing but fifty-four pounds. Of his entire grain
crop Mr. Middleton only lost some two acres
from being lodged. Of the three kinds of
seed used the Canada Fife stood up the best
and sti ongest, the White Fife next and the Lost
Nation the poorest. His barley was a orry
crop, yielding only about thirty bushels to the
acre, and colored badly, though it is better, he
thinks, than the great bulk of the barley crop
in that county. Speaking of the injury to the
wheat this jear irom blight and rust, Mr.
Middleton said it did not weaken his faith in
Minne-ota for grain farming. This, he said,
was his thirty-fourth crop in the State, and
only once before, 1858, had wheat suffered se
riously from blight or rust. In other seasons
the giain had suffered in some localities from
other causes, but there had been no general in
jury except in the two years mentioned.
Mr J. B. Power, land commissioner of the
Northern Paeifb. is beginning to receive reports
of the wheat yield along that road. From
Messrs. Moyer ana Cross, of Mapleton, twelve
miles west of Fargo, he has received a sample of
the grain grown on a two hundred acre held,
which yielded 30 bushels to the acre of No. 1
wheat. This will do pretty well for what is
called an off yeai. Threshing on the great
Dalrymple farms is progressing as rapidly as
the yield promises to be as bounti
ful as last year. The first shipment of fifteen
pais was graded by the inspector as extra No. 1.

LEW WALLACE ON OKTH.
The Reasons for the Formation of Ant i
Orth Republican Clubs in Indiana.
A reporter of the Cincinnati Enquiier has
interviewed Gen. Lew Wallace as to the rea
sons for the formation of Anti-Orth Re
publican clubs. Gen. Wallace states his
views as follows:
"We will make no charges against
Mr. Orth until we have examined all the
documents and evidence connecting him
with the Venezuela affair, and if, upon in
ves&gaiion, we find that the charges are not
sustained, we will promptly report that we
exonerate him from them. If, on the other
hand, we think they are sustained, we will
give our reasons to the public."
"As you seem to be hunting for proofs
against Mr. Orth, allow me to ask upon
what you base your objections to him as the
nominee of your party?'
"Our objections aie based upon his re
ported connection with the Venezuela affair,
as stated in his own testimony in regard to
that matter, in which we think we discern
conduct on his part not consistent with com
mon official honesty. Speaking for myself
personally, I will say that if, upon a fair and
impartial investigation of all the documents
and proofs pertaining to this business, rfty
conclusion should be that he is to blame or
in fault, I mean to say so. If he is found in
fault, as we think he is, then we will say
that and fasten it upon him, and for that
purpose we will delay the issue of the ad
dress until we can examine these proofs."
"Bat, General, as you seem not to have
any of these proofs at hand, allow me to ask
why you have taken any steps to organize
this society in advance of knowing whether
you will decide him innocent or guilty?"
-"We base our action upon the printed re
port of his own testimony, given the In
dianapolis Journal a few days previous to
his withdrawal fiom the State ticket two
years ago, connection with the Venezuela
affair, which were given in connection with
the published statements ot other persons
touching the same affair. I also base it upon
information derive 1 from Mr. White, who,
in answer to a question of mine, said that a
night or two before the end of the last ses
sion of Congress the committee made a
formal report to the House on the Venezuela
affair, which report stated that the whole
business was a fraud. These are the reasons
which form the basis of our action."
"Did Mr. White say that this report made
to the House connected Mr, Orth with the
"He did not, for I did not ask him that
question. Mr. Orth had sworn that he was
connected with the affair, and the commit
tee said it was a fraud. I shall use no in
formation which is not official or based upon
Mr. Orth's sworn statement, and if I find
that I have been mistaken I will be swift to
so declare. ^But I understand and believe
that his decimation was referable directly to
the Venezuela affair and the circumstances
at the time, all taken together, I construe
into an admission of the truth of the charges
made against him."
"Mr. Orth was abroad, holding a high
official place as the representative of our
government, which he resigned, and came
home to accept the nomination tendered
him by the Republican party of this State,
for the office of governor. came home,
accepted the nomination, and proceeded to
make speeches and take an active part in the
canvass. Then these charges were made
against him, and they occasioned great
solicitude among Republicans all over the
State, because they felt they could not carry
him if they were true. When it was told
him that these charges were made, I am in
formed, an appointment was published by
him for a meeting at Masonic Hall, in In
dianapolis, its special object being to give
him an opportunity to explain the charges
and exculpate himself. Shortly before this
appointed time the public were informed
that Mr. Orth had resigned his candidacy,
letting the meeting go by default. This ac
tion left the belief upon my mind and upon
that of every intelligent man in the State,
that his declination was the direct conse
quence of his participation in the affair, and
that it would admit of no explanation which
would be consistent with common honesty.'*
"Our position in this matter may be stated
thus: Are there furnished by the case, ad
mit ing the charges to be true, sufficient
reasons for dropping his name in voting the
ticket? The rule which I have adopted for
my own government in such cages does not
extend to the private morals, though I think
it dught to. I recognize the fact that an im
moral man may faithfully serve his country,
for we have all known of such instances.
Without inquiring into Mr. Orth's conduct
in the manner of his political appointments
without inquiring into the alleged instances
where he has used money to procure nomina
tions, either by himself or his agents with
out inquiring-into the charge of his having
procured support by the promise of the gift
of offices without inquiring into the report
of a sale of a revenue office, where the money
was paid, and the office, instead of being
given to the purchaser, was given to the
agent to whom the money was paid without
inquiring into his alleged habit, for eight
years of the ten served by him, of promising
the same office to a number of persons as a
reward for support, when he knew well that
but one could have it without these things
and lesser ones, the rule that decides and
spots each day, and he advised the dogs to governs me is this: if a person elected, to
get new spotsso the dogs began to cheer
up bat they mistook the doctor's meaning,
he meaning that the -dogs should go to a
new spot of country, where they were not
known, but they thought he meant to paint
new colors on their lousy dog skinsso
they got some Granger revenue hair dye,
and came out new dogs, that never
had stolen any mutton, and nobody
could claim pay for lost mutton of them
since their treatment Dy old Dr. Ruptcy.
This shows that they were enterprising dogs,
and it did not take them long to lay their
plans. They soon round where a very re
spectable, kind-hearted and wealthy gentle
man with a great family lived, and they
jumped over into his front door yard, ran
about familiarly, barking, dancing, and
making themselves very much at home, as if
they had always belonged thereall for the
pursose of compelling honest people to
notice them and believe that the rich man
with the large family owned the dogs. They
pretended to take care of his sheep and every
thing on the premises so well for a time
that the rich man began to think that they
really were valuable dogs. They pretended
to take such great interest in all of the af
fairs of the estate that strangers began to
wonder whether the dogs owned the family
or the family owned the dogs. Sometimes
when they were only looking at and listen
ing to the dogs, it seemed as if the dogs
really manufactured or created the family
and all their surroundings from nothing and
Soon the dogs concluded to
give a great party upon the prem
ises, and in the name of their
newly selected master, for in such a great
gathering as could easily be gotten together
in his honest name, great opportunities for
plunder would be presented, and if mutton
should be lost, it would be impossible in the
great jumble and crowd to trace it, and they
could leave some mutton on some man's
door step and make everyone believe him
the thief, (an old trick of these dogs). So
all the world was invited and oame to the
rich man's entertainment, and while the
mirth and enjoyment were at the highest the
old dogs slipped out and carried off great
quantities of mutton and hid it in two large
fields owned by two women who could claim
it as their own, and where no one could find
or recover it, and they pinned a lambs tail
into the coat pocket of each of the guests,
leaving an end sticking out, so that when
they went horns each man thought the man
in front of him had mutton*in his pocket.

OUTWITTING A DETECTIVE.
An Episode of the Chase for Kimpton, of
[Hartford Co urant.
The recently reported arrest of Kimpton,
the former financial agent of South Carolina,
at his place of hiding in Westfield, Mass.,
calls to mind an episode which occurred in
this city last March, about the time that
Kimpton escaped from New Haven to Cana
da. had been living retirement with
his wife in New Haven, but a detective dis
covered his place of refuge, and Kimpton
managed to escape. The detective contiuned
to watch Mrs. Kimpton's movements, how
ever. She set out to rejoin her husband,
but the same car she discovered the per
sistent detective, and surmised that he was
following her as a guide to her husband's
whereabouts. At this city she left the train
and sought lefuge at (he house of a gentle
man whom she had formerly know. Telling
her troubles, he received her hospitably, and
offered to do all in his power to assist her in
continuing her journey.
Very soon the ubiquitous detective was
discovered prowling around the house.
had followed the lady's carriage to the house
of her friend, and seemed determined to
watch all her movements. She could not go
out wiihout being "shadowed," and the tire
less officer even hired two spies and bribed
the gentleman's coachman, the better to pre
vent the lady eluding him. To overcome
such vigilance was a puzzle which, as the
gentleman says, "kept him awake nights."
Finally a plan was devised, and, as will be
seen, it succeeded. Mrs. Kimpton put some
few, necessary articles in a hand-bag, and
Mr. covering the bag carelessly with
a buffalo robe, placed it in his carriage and
told his coachman to diive the carriage to a
repair shop on Front street, and leave it there
until he should call in a short time, and
superintend some slight repairs. Then tell
ing Mrs. Kimpton to call at his Btoie on
State street at precisely 11 A. M.,
and to observe if she was shadowed,
he went to his business as usual. At 11
the lady appeared, but reported that the
pertinacious detective was on the track.
"Very well," said the gentleman "now you
go up Market street to Temple, as though
yc were going to Main. Th detective will
probably go up Kingsley street (parallel with
Temple), expecting to come in sight of you
at Main street. But, instead of continuing
up Temple stieet, turn about and go down
Market stieet to Pleasant street as fast as
you can. I will meet you there."
Immediately the course as explained to
Mrs. Kimpton was followed out. As pre
dicted, her follower took Kingsley street,
and she thus eluded him. Mr. leaped
the fence in the rear of his place of business
with an agility that would do credit to a man
of half his weight, was in his carriage in
Front street in a second, and quickly rejoined
his fiiend at the corner of Pleasant and
Market streets. Then a rapid ride to the
Ten-Mile Woods, and on to Windsor. She
took a train and went to Boston,
tbence rejoining her husband. Th
gentleman returned to the city by a
cucuitous route. Th detective was not
lon^ in discovering that he had been foiled,
and, approaching Mr. in the evening, he
asked, "Di you have a pleasant ride?"
"Yes," was the reply, "an it was a ride
which threw you off the track, or, in other
words, you were distanced.' Subsequently,
the problem of getting Mrs. Kimpton's
tiunks through to her stopping place came
up, and her ingenious friend was again equal
to the emergency. Having them taken to
his store, he inclosed them in ordinary dry
goods cases and shipped them with his usual
consignment of goods. Th detective and
his spies, completely thrown off the scent,
gave up the job in disgust.
HAYJKS' FAVORITE COLLECTOR.
How He Institute? Groundless Charges
Against Public OfficersProbability that
He frill Be Bounced.
[Washington Special, (Aug. 17.) to New York
One of the charges brought by the mer
chants at Chicago and St. Louis against the
New York custom house is that excessive al
lowances are made to New York merchants
for damages. This claim is used as an argu
ment why Chicago and St. Louis are not as
thriving seaports as New York. Assistant
Secretary French is engaged in preparing an
opinion on a case involving this serious charge
against the N York custom house, although
he has previously decided in favor of New
York five different times. The cordial rela
tions existing between William Henry Smith,
the collector at Chicago, and the President
enables the former to constantly prosecute a
series of groundless charges against the New
York customs authorities, which may result
disastrously to the interests of New York
merchants. Smith has the reputation in the
treasury department of being a hard fighter.
He is now engaged in -in offensive warfare
against Mr. James, chief of the customs divi
sion, and Mr. Hill, supervising architect, and
it is said that his relations with Assistant
Secretary French are not entirely har
monious. At any rate, Mr. French cham
pions Mr. James in the fight which Smith is
making against him. Secretary Sherman is
the umpire between the New York import
ers and Smith, and as a friend of Mr. Hayes
he also tries to soothe and placate the Chi
cago collector. There is talk of organizing
a crusade against Smith in the treasury de
partment which will force Mr. Hayes to sus
pend his favorite collector.
A Rejoicing tliat Never Occurs in the Tri
The St. Paul GLOBE, this morning's issue,
editorially announces that OD Saturday a gen
tleman, (name not given,) deliberately walked
into the counting-room of that establishment,
subscribed for the paper for six months, pay
ing therefor in advance, and "retired in good
order." The Tribune congratulates the GLOBE
upon the occasion of this, to it, apparently
novel experience, and trusts that it may prove
the dawn of anew and lasting era in its affairs.
Happiness for One Day. *J*j
i St. Cloud Times.l
St. Paul people must have enjoyed a sea
son of unalloyed happiness on last Saturday.
The dailies of that morning announced to
their readers that the Fort Snelling bridge
muddle, which had been agitating the* city
for several days, was finally settled and the
contract signed: that the vexed question of
the election of a school superintendent, also
a bone of contention of huge proportions,
had been disposed of by the election of Prof.
B. "Wright that the order for the return
of military headquarters from Fort Snelling
to that city had been issued, and that the
"shoulder straps"' were once more a part of
the population of the enterprising capital
citythe last information being especially
pleasing to the ladies.
The State fair managers seem determined
to overwhelm everyone with the coming
State fair. "What with the wonderous dis
play of horses, stock and every class of ex
hibits, what with the promise of Rarus with
hie 2:13J4, what with the great bench show
of dogs, what with the base ball contest be
tween the celebratee White Stocking and
Boston clubs, what with Carver and Bogar
dus, what with all these and number
less other wonders, one feels over
come just to think of it, and fears
that they actually will be too much for him.
We trust therefore Mr. Finch & Co. will
hold up, for they have certainly promised
enough not only for an ordinary, but even
for the extraordinary State fair that is to be.
I Swift County Advocate.]
President Hayes has accepted an invitation
to be at St. Paul during the State fair. Won
der what the GLOBE will do while he is
here? It agonies, no doubt, will be ex
treme to have the "great fraud" in the saint
ly city. I contortions are fearful with
Hayes in Washington, and what will they
be with him in St. Paul. And if John
Sherman should come withbut spare us!
O, spare us
The ish Daddy to the Thought.
[Red Wing Republican.
The St. Paul GLOBK says that if Mr. Al
bert Scheffer would accept the nomination to
Congress in the Third district he would be"
elected. It must be painful to know so

will try can't come within 6,000 votes of do
Jim and Ruth if.
