Tuere was an earthquake in Asia Mi nor last week and the loss of life was very great, not less than 2,000 persons being killed. These has been a steady decline in the grain market daring the past week. The late advances were undoubtedly the result of the grasshopper scare. Those who have studied the habits of the pests say they are not grasshoppers butlocusses. Thenumberofpersonswho can testify to their depraved character is very great. President Grant has written a letter to Gen. Harry White, President of the recent Republican State Convention of Pennsylvania, in reference to the third term question.

The Bishops of the Methodist Church, who assembled in Chicago last week, preached in the various churcbesof their faith on Sunday, and they made an or ganized effort to arouse missionary inter est and to secure increased contributions for this work. The immediate result to the missionary exchequer was very grat ifying, but how, much permanent sup port they brought to the cause is as yet unknown. In New York City the Board of Trade have a committee investigating the workings of the increased postage on newspapers and parcels. One merchant stated that the new postal tariff made a difference of $C,000 in his annual expen ses. Before the agitation about this matter is over a good many ofour Legis lators will be sor,ry that they took a part in perpetrating such a trick upon the country. At the recent bession of the New Eng land Annual Conference of the Method ist Episcopal church, the following reso lution in relation to reading the Bible in public schools was adopted : Resolved, That the reading of the Bi ble in our public schools, when enforced V lAa! nqnntitns i Sin obllETation fa" consistent with our republican form of government, the principles oi our irroi estant religion, and the teachings of the Bible itself.

Ix Texas the Republicans held a con vention at Hampstead last week and de cided not to make a political issue on the election of members to tlio Constitu tional Convention. A series of resolu tions was adopted charging the Demo cratic party with the destruction of the public school system of the State; the increase of the State indebtedness to twice what it was when the Republicans went out of power; the increase of taxes by creating a large number of unnecessa ry offices some two hundred having been made by law during the past three years; and opposition to internal im provements, which are essential to the development of the State. DECOKATIO.N DAY. Decoration Day, May 30th came on Sunday this year and was consequently divided up into three sections, loose who bad no conscientious scruples against so doing kept Sunday, while those who had were about equally divided between Saturday and Monday. In the leading cities most of the business bouses were closed and vast multitudes of the people took part in the exercises. In some oi the Southern cities the people irrespec tive of partv or race participated in the exercises and decorated alike tho graves of both tho Union and the Confederate soldiers. We believe that Gen. Bartlett, at the centennial celebration of Lexing ton and Concord, cave uttcranco to the sentiments of the great mass of the sol diers of both tho lato armies when he said "that between the soldiers of the two tWtiona of our t uutTy fra. ed long Ume has come when in some parts of our country, at iCMt, the friends of the departed Drav rf . mefit an(J join in tl0 beamifuj and appropriate ceremony of decorating their graves with flowers.

ALLEN COUNTY SCHOOL INTERESTS. We had intended to have an Institute this spring; but the depressed condition of money matters leaving schools without teachers and teachers without employ ment, and the grasshopper scare, with general uncertainty of things, make it impracticable to do so. We hope that all teachers employed or unemployed, will improve the time to the bestadvant- age and be prepared for a good institute in September, closing with an examina tion that will do credit to themselves and others. We urge upon school boards to pay more attention to uniformity ot text books. There are several schools that have as many as three and four text books by different authors on the same subject. For instance, a school visited the present week had of grammars, Clarkes. Pinneos and Harveys, with classes of two and three in each ; and all of about the same grade. Many say tliev cannot afford to change books, and thus there is a perfect mixture of books in the schools. It is false economy. Suppose you allow thirty minutes for recitation, take three classes as above, and an hour and a half is used for a half hours work. Clearly one hour is wasted. Recitations once a day, -term three months, sixty hours, tea school days; you pay, say $1.50 per day for teacher, therefore you pay $15 for time where f z worth of boot would have done the work. In the school alluded to the same thing existed in geographies and -arithmetics.

NOTES AND EXTRACTS. It is a hopeful sign to see Presidential aspirants seeking the favor of tlio people through opposition to corrupt rings. Til deu and Bristnw have gained decided ad vantages in this direction. Toledo Blade. The people are determined to have honest and good government, and those who estrange the honest body of indepen dent voters are the enemies of the people. MUieauiee Newt. With all the negro and skallawag dele gates from the South in his favor, and with a few office-holding delegations from the North, Gen. Grant can be nom inated for a third or a tenth term. Mo bile Regitter. Gen. Sheridan takes the right position in preventing tresspassing on the Indian reservation. As long as our treaty with the Sioux exists, this is the only way for the government and its agents to act, and it would be well if there were more officers like Sheridan to enforce the rights of the red men as well as to enforce our own.

Philadelphia lima. The duty of self-abnegation will ad monish every true friend of his country that the public good should he consider ed before self-interest, and the public sentiment should control individual as pirations. Wathtnglon Chronicle. There is no doubt that the Secretary of the Treasury is making himself the strongest man in his party, and if he should be the Republican nominee for President it would involve the necessity on the part of the Democrats to nominate Gov. Tilden, making the canvass turn on purely reformatory and domestic questions. Louisville Courier-Journal. It is asserted that Bristow is to be the nest President. The evidence of this ambition is said to be his energetic ef forts to put the business of tho Treasury Department on an economical footing, and to make honesty and efficiency char acteristic featuresof the administration of its affairs. If this is the result of an am bition to reach the Presidency, it would be a wholesome thing for the country if all the members of the Cabinet were suf fering from an attack of the Presidential fever. Cincinnati Commercial. It can make little difference now whether the President speaks or remains silent, for Pennsylvania has spoken, and with such distinctness and emphasis as to carry assurance to the timid that if any third term aspirations have been indulged their indulgence was vain. Philadelphia Inquirer (R'p). Slaverv is dead, and if it is necessary to keep alive the memory of its wrongs, let not the benefits it conferred be studi ously ignored.

The Republicans of Ohio met in State convention at Columbus on the 2d inst. The following is the ticket nominated : For Governor, Ruthfoid B. Hayes, of Sandusky: Licutenant-Orovcriior, ilium as 1j. Young, of Hamilton: Supreme Judge, Geo. W. Mcllvainf Auditor, James Williams, of Franklin ; Attorney General Jno Little; Treasurer, Minor Milliken; Member of the Board of 1'ub lic Works, P. Thacher. Hayes' nomina tion was made unanimous, on tho motion of Chas. P. Taft, son of Judge Taft, who was the only other formidable candidate for Governor. Before the convention adjourned Hayes accepted the nomination by telegraph. Iho following plattorm was unammou -ly adopted : Tho Republicans of Ohio in convention assembled, reaffirming the cardinal principles of their organization, which have become recognized maxims of policy, Stato and National, declare on specific points the scries of sentiments following. First : That the States are one as a nation, and all citizens under the laws are equal, and entitled to their fullest protection. Second: That a policy of finance should be steadily pursued which, with out unnecessary shocks to business or trade, will ultimately-' equalize the pur chasing capacity of the coin and paper dollar. Third : Wty in favor of a tariff for revenue witfr tScidehtal protection to American industry. Fourth : We stand by free education, our public tclioorsystem, the taxation of all lor its support, and no division of the school fund. Fifth: Under our Republican system of government, there should bo no" con nection, direct or indirect, between Church and State, and we oppose alt legislation in the interest of any particu lar sect upon this subject. Sixth : We demand such a revision of tho patent laws as will relieve indus try from tho oppression of monopolies in the administration. Seventh : A grateful people will nev er cease to remember tho services of our soidiers and sailors ; and it is due them that liberality and generosity should be shown in the adjustment of pay and bounties. Eighth: That we demand that the public domain shall be scrupulously re served foroccupancy ofactual settlement. Ninth: The determination of the government to collect the revenue, and prevent and punish frauds, has our un qualified approval. Tenth : That the power of municipal corporations to create debts should bo restricted, and local and other expendi tures should be so reduced as to diminish taxation. Eleventh : The observance of Wash ington's example in retiring at the close of s second Presidential term, will be in the future, as it has been in the past, re garded as a fundamental rnle in the un written law of the Republic. Twelfth : The distinguished success of i his administration, which to the fame of the patriot and soldier has added that ot the capable and judicious statesman, entitles President Grant to the gratitude of his countrymen.

J Dear Sir: A short time subsequent to the Presidential election of 1872 the press, a portion of it hostile to the Re publican party, and particularly so to the administiation, started the cry of "Caaansm," and "third term," calling on me to define my position on the latter subject. I believe it to be beneath the dignity ot the. office which I have been twice called upon to fill, to answer such a question before the subject should be presented by competent authority to make a nomination, or by a body of such dignity and, authority as not to make the rcplv a fair subject of ridicule. In fact I have been surprised that so many sen sible persons in the Republican party suouia permit meir enemy m lorce upon them and their party an issue which can not add strength to the party, no matter how met. But a body of the dignity and party authority of a convention to make nominations for the State officers of the second State in the Union have consid ered this question, I deem it not improp er that I should now speak. In the first place I never sought this office for a second or even a first nomi nation. To the first I was called from a life position, one created by Congress especially for me, for supposed services retiuereu to tne itepuunc. ilie position vacated I liked. It would have been most agreeable to me to have retained it till such a time as Congress might have consented to my retirement with the rank and a portion of the emoluments which I so much needed, to a home where the balance of my days might be spent in peace and the enjoyment of do mestic quiet, retired from the cares which have oppressed me so constantly now for fourteen years. But I was made to be lieve that the public good called me to make the sacrifice. Without seeking the office for the sec ond term, the nomination was tendered to me by an unanimous vote of the dele gates ot all the States and Territories se lected by tho Republicans of each to represent their whole number for the purpose of making their nomination. I cannot say that I was not pleased at this, and the overwhelming endorsement which their action received at the elec tion following. But it must be remem bored that all the sacrifices except that of comfort had been made in accepting the first term. That too much of a fire of personal abuse and slander has been kept up, for four years, notwithstanding the conscientious performance of my du ties to the best of my understanding though I admit, in the lightofsubsequent events many times subject to fair criti cism that an endorsement from the peo ple, who alone govern republics, was a quaiincaiiuu iimt it js uuiy uuuiuu tu have appreciated and enjoyed. Now lor the third term, I do not want it any more than I did the first. I would not write or utter a word to change the will of the people in expressing or having their choice. The question ot the num ber of terms allowed to any one execut ive, can only come up fairly in the shape of a proposition to amend tho constitu tion; a shape in which all political par ties can participate, fixing the length and the number of terms for which any one person shall be eligible for the office of President. Until such an amendment is adopted, the people cannot be restric ted in their choice by resolution, further than they are now restricted as to age, nationality, etc. It may happen that in the future history of the county that to change the executive, because he has been eight years in offie will prove un fortunate if not disastrous. The idea that any man could elect himself Presi dent or renominatehimsclf, is preposter ous. It is a reflection upon the intelli gence and patriotism of the people to sup pose such a thing" possible. Any man can destroy his cbahecs for the office, but no one can force an election or even nom ination. f To recapitulate : I am not, nor have I ever been a candidate for nomination ; I would not accept a nomination if it was tendered, unless it should come under such circumstances as to make it an im perative duty, circumstances not likely to arise. I congratulate the convention over which you presided for the harmony which prevailed, and for the excellent ticket in the field, and which I hope may bo triumphantly elected. With great respect your oDeaient ser vant. U. S. Grant. To Gen. Harry White, President Penn sylvania ivepuoiican oiate vxraveuuou. STATE NEWS. Miami county has a chceso factory.
