Old again. man Bender baa been caught Tbia time he is in Colorado. The founder and editor in -chief of the Galveston Neva, Wtllard Richardson, died last Monday. Two more cases reported last week of persons endeavoring to kindle fires with co.il oil, one at Ft. Scott in this State and the other at Jopiin, Mo. Tub term of office of the present county treasurers will expire the first of July 1876, and those who are elected this fall will rot take possession of their offices until the second Tuesday in October. The vacancies which will exist from Ju ly till October will be filled by appoint- ment made by the County Commis sioners. THE DEMOCRACY AND (J. S. BONDS. The bridge across the river at Atchi son Will soon be finished, and the ques tion is being discussed by the citizens whether or no they will celebrate the day of its completion. The Journal, heretofore published at Elk Falls, Howard county, has been re moved to Sedan, Chautauqua county. This is one of the two counties into "which Howard has been divided. Some time in September there is to be j grand reunion of soldiers at Indianapo lis. All the most noted generals will be 'invited, and the meeting wjJU doubtless be the largest of the kind -ever held in Indiana. The French Assembly recently voted by a large majority to take a recess for three moutns from the 4th of August, and'the political future of France is un certain, as the majority which has of late controlled the Assembly is thus broken up. Eastern Democratic papers have de nounced the inflation plank in the plat form of the Ohio Democrats so severely that they begin to show a willingness to Abandon it. .Geo. H. Pendleton in a late speech stowed the white feather on the money Question. The Galveston Newt announces that the grain elevator at that port has been completed, and that they are receiving and shipping wheat and oats. It is en couraging that the business of handling grain has been commenced in that city, for the trade will become a permanent and profitable one and in time our farm ers will reap the benefits of a market at the gulf. Last Wednesday night the greatest, rain storm ever knows in that part of the country passed over central Miisouri. At Sedalia great damage was done in the city and vicinity, and between Sedalia and Boonville some twelve miles of the track of the M. K. & T. railroad was rendered useless. Culverts and bridges were washed out on all the roads through that section of country. The announcement of Xbe suspension of the banking bouse of Duncan, Shear man & Co. of New York City last Tues day morning caused intense excitement on Wall street. The cauie of the sus pension is not definitely known, but it is reported that their loe extend over a period of several years, the heaviest loss having been in cotton. The liabilities of the house are given at inside of six millions of dollars. The firm made a general assignment to W. D. Shipman, Our State Board of Agriculture have filially decided not to hold a State Fair this year. At a bite meeting they adop ted the following : "Whereas, A sufficient inducement lias not been offered to insure financial succeiM. Therefore, resolved, that we deem it inexpedient .to hold a State Fair the coming year." It has been decided by the Supreme Court of our State that a condition in a deed that no intoxicating liquors shall be sold on the premises is valid, and that for a breech of this condition the grantor may recover back the land. The case on which the decision wts rendered was from Osage county. Almost every paper in the State is filled with glowing accounts of the big crops in Kansas this season. The news papers have wisely determined to adver tise our prosperity more extensively than they did the grasshoppers and the aid business. Some of .our papers may occasionally overdo the thing, as for in stance where they state that corn stalks are twenty-five feet high with from twelve to fifteen ears to the stalk, this is merely figurative, and they simply mean that such a prospect for corn was never before seen in any country. That public benevolence is not ex hausted, although during the past year there have been great demands made upon it, is shown by .the substantial sympathy that has been called out by the late destructive floods in france. A fact worthy the attention of those who harp on the degeneracy of the times. CoSTBAR" to expectation the army on the frontier is pretty effectually guarding the Black Hills country, and it is very difficult for miners to get there and a poor chance for their staying if tbey do. And to make the matter more provoking late dispatches from Prof. Jenney report the discovery of encouraging prospects. Government revenue officers inspec ted the liquor dealers at Sedalia, Mo., last Monday and made one "crooked" discovery. They found some twenty empty barrels in possession of a Mr. Glass which bad government stamps on them that had not been canceled. There appears to bo no end to the dishonesty in fl3 vhiaky traffic. Last Saturday evening the captain of a British steamer created considerable excitement among the city authorities at New Orleans by refusing to give up to the police three of big sailors charged with theft. The matter was referred to the British consul, but in the meantime the steamer sailed for Liverpool with the accused sailors on board. Justice Strong, of the U. S. Supreme Court, says in relation to the laws passed by the State Legislature of the Confed erate States during the rebellion: "AH the enactments of the de facto legislatures in the insurrectionarv States during the war, which were not hostile to the Union, or to the authority of the general government, and which were not in conflict with the constitution of the United States, have the same validity as if they bad'been enactments of legitimate legislatures: and any other doctrine than this would work great unnecessary hard ship upon the people of those states, without any corresponding benefit to the citizens of other States, and without any advantage to the national government." Governor Allen and S. F. Cary, can didates on the Democratic ticket of Ohio for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of that state are publicly denouncing holders of IT. S. bonds as "coupon-clippers," "thieves," "plunderers," ete. In response to these charges the New York Timet says that the holders of these bonds have paid the full value of them and in most instances above their par value in gold and asks these gentlemen to tell the people wherein the transaction is not honest and legitimate. According to Mr. Cary a man is a thief because he invests hia money in a security, the safety of which is guaranteed by the United States. This gentleman was once a not ed temperance lecturer, and if in defense of that cause he paid as little regard to truth as he does in politics the best tbiug be ever done for it was to desert it and go to making Democratic speeches, for in the latter business it is expected of him that he deal in buncombe and draw Upon hi imagination fur facts. The Timet closes its comments on this subject as follows : And now see in what a position this places the whole country. At this very moment the United States, through their Government and its agents, are making strenuous efforts to sell these very bonds, not only in the United States, but all over Europe. Everything has been done to induce people everywhere to place the utmost confidence in them. They form a security which fathers and mothers are tempted to buy and lay aside for their children. As we have shown, they can only be bought at a sum which is above their face value. And yet, while the government is endeavoring to sell them for the sake of causing a great saving in the interest on our debt, the Democrats of the vast State of Ohio are exciting popular clamor against all who buy them as "coupon-clippers" and"thieves." They argue as if these bonds were given away to a "moneyed aristocracy' Jf the people generally took up this cry, what could De saia or tnought of us ex cept that we were a nation of swindlers? ror here we snouia be, selling a security to-day under the most solemn obligations of good laitu, which we had deliberately made up our minds to repudiate to-mor row, rray. who would be the thief in such a case as that the buyer or the seller? A more infamous course than that which is being pursued by the two chief candidates on the Democratic ticket in Ohio is not recorded in political his tory. It is worthy only of foot pads. NOTES AND EXTRACTS. One part of the governmental display at the Centennial exhibition at Phila delphia will be a collection to illustrate the ethnology of the United States. The Smithsonian Institution has charge of this work, and in order that the collec tion may be as complete as possible this Institution solicits from all interested in this display whatever specimens they can iurnish in the way of objects of stone, bone, earthware, etc. Specimens can be sent either by express or mail and their transportation will be paid for on their receipt at Washington, where they fchould be fent addressed to the Smithsonian instition. Apainnhletcon- tain the classification of the objects that go to lorm this ethnological collection will be sent on application to the Insti tution. A jWUUb REVIVAL. The Parsons Sun under the manage ment of Reynolds, Gilford & Winters pomes to us greatly improved in every respect. The citizens of Parsons have occasion ,to rejoice that the Suu has ab sorbed the Surprise, although it was a lii;ely little sheet, as one good paper is more credit to a town than half a dozen poor ones. On the 2Gth inst. Judge Fisher ten dered his resignation of the office of U, S. District Attorney for the District of Columbia. He was compelled to jesign his office on account of failing to prompt ly prosecute .parties charged with de frauding the revenue. Ex-Governor Wells, of Virginia, has been appointed as his successor. It is estimated by Senator Sargent, of California, that during Grant's adminis tration by day and by and night the reduction of the national debt has been at the ra,te of ape hundred and twenty dollars per minute. Two dollars a second does pretty well, and if it is kept up long enough will wipe out the nation's in debtedness. The telegraph dispatches last Thurs day contain a report from .the Indian Territory" .to the effect that $ol. vVP. Ross, principal chief of the Cherokee In flian,, was assassinated near Port Gibson last -Wednesday. Col. Ross was a candi date for electjoa to the .position 'of principal chief of his nation. The mur der is supposed to have beep .committed by the .friends of Downing, an opposing candidate. " ' " ' " ' ' In a late numberof Frank Leslie's lllus- trated Ncicspapcr is au editorial under the above heading in which it is claimed that instead of a religious revival such as has heretofore followed beosons of de pression our people have undergone a great social change, and that its good ef fects will be manifested both in the fam ily and in society. The editor says : "It is safe to say that had there been no era of clerical scandal at this time, there would have been a religious revival A series of sad stories relating to pastors and their charges culminated in one wretched tale of huge dimensions, whose snauow cxtenued to every corner of the land. Under such a condition of things it was impossible Jo create the zeal of tho pietist. There was a widely prevalent icenng irom me nrst tuat the matter ev idenced the need of a social revival rath er than religious fervor, and that this was the best time to create a demand for a reformation that should reach through out society, carrying both clergymen and their people with it. Society had been too long at the mercy of experi menters. The crusade of free love, or, rather, unbridled license, bad reached even to the church-doors and was knock ing far admission to the sanctuary. It was feared that even those hallowed premises were invaded by the fantics of tne new gospel ot lust, for a certain mawkish mode of expression had made itself manifest it the iiulnit. tn tho rxril of pure doctrine.

The Republicans of Minnesota met in State convention at St Paul on the 28th inst, and nominated a ticket headed by John J. Pillsbury for Governor and James B. Wakefield for Lieutenant Gov ernor. The following is the platform adopted : First The Republicans of Minnesota reaturm the cardinal principles of their party, which hae become the established policy of both state and national govern ments. Second That on the prominent ques tions of the day, we favor that policy of nuance winch shall keep in view a return to specie payments. Third A tariff strictly for revenue, yet so adjusted as to be least burdensome and most favorable to the interests of home industry and labor. Fourth We demand that all railway and other corporations shall be held in fair and just subjection to the law mak ing power constitutionally exercised. Fifth Thai we endorse the progress ive and liberal policy of the Republican party in its well defined and clearly an nounced purpose to foster the agricultur al industrial interests of the country bv a judicious system of internal improve ments. Sixth That to the Republican party is justly due the honor and credit of se curing, for the first time, recognition by foriegu governments, and full and com plete rights of citizenship, in reversal of the monarchal doctrine that a subject can not absolve himself from allegiance to his sovereign by naturalization under our laws. Seventh We commend the honesty ot the State administration, and point with satisfaction to the fact that ithas reduced the aggregate of state taxes twenty per cent within the last two years. Eighth That the example of Wash ington in refusing to be a candidate for the third term, and affirmed by President urant that the principle is one we sac redly cherish, and should regard a de parture from it asadangerous innovation. Ninth That weapprove of the present uepubiican national administration, and its earnest efforts to collect the revenue. to prevent and punish fraud, to expose past violations and to guard against their recurrence in the future. Tenth We indorse the policy of ad justing uiihcuities between this and for eign nations by arbitration instead of war. Eleventh A grateful people can nev er forget the services of her soldiers, and it is due to them that liberality and gen erosity should be exercised in matters of bounty and pensions. Twelfth That since purity and per manency of free institutions of govern ment depend upon the universal diffusion of knowledge among the people, the Re publican party of Minnesota affirms its connection that it is the duty of the State, not only to maintain the integri ty of the common school system, but to do all that is needful, so as to increase efficiency, so as to secure the blessings of a wise and generous'education to every child within its borders. If the Democrats should carry Ohio very improbable such a result now seems the National Convention will be anoth er "howling inflation mob," and the is sue would be squarely met by the Re publicans. If Senator Thurman or oth er old-time .Democrats fail to see this. tucir uMuuucws a suiyi:icuireaauii luruio- trusting them as popular leaders. Bos ton Advertiser. Prof. Marsh is still poking sharp sticks into the sore shins ot the Indian King. The flinching and yelling prove that the Professor knows what he is about Cin cinnati Commercial. For our own part we care little wheth er the candidate of the Democrats and Conservatives for the Presidency shall be chosen from the North, the East, or the West All we want is that be shall be an impartial patriot, a broad-brained statesman, and in sincere sympathy with the highest aud best interests of the whole American people. Richmond Whig. How much has President Grant gained by putting off the compul-ory resigna tion of Secretary Delano till the newspa pers ceased their reflection on him? What progress has been made in the sub sidence ? And how much has Secretary Delano made by deferring his desired resignation till he could seem to do it without any pressure, save that of the imperative demands of his private affairs? Cincinnati Qazette. Mr. Smith may be a good and pious man, and Prof. Marsh may be mistaken in saying that he makes fraudulent con tracts, keeps bad men in office, and tells lies ; but his friends ought not to leave him alone now. Some of their certifi cates to his goodness would be of more value to him now than at any previous time in his life. Nation. The fact of the matter seems to be that Allen has gone oyer to Cary on the rag baby issue, and Carv to Allen on the question of whisky. The two are now in a beautiful state of harmony. Cincinnati Qazette. President Grant, with all his mistakes has done several grand things, and one in particular, that at present looms up in all its majestic proportions. He has placed his Administration, by his mes sages and acts, squarely on the side of specie payments. notion lranscnpi. The attempt to array the Republican party as a hard money party, and the Democratic party as a depreciated paper party, is sheer folly. There is not a grain of common sense-in it, and it shows utter inconsistency on the part ot those Republicans who are striving to do it. Harrlsbury Patriot. Delano still hangs on the edge of the Cabinet. He is a veteran in that body, and must be humored in some of his ec centricties, such as allowing his agents to cheat and starve the Indians. Of course it is not exactly just to the In dians or whiles who pay the taxes, but Delano has been in the Cabinet so long. Troy Whig. Mr. G. W. Snow and Mr. John Camp bell will commence the shipment of grain from this point by sendiqg two car loads of oats to Kansas City this week. Grain was shipped in all wjnter, and now we propose to turn the tide. Uarnett Plaindealer. An eastern drummer, and one of our plebeians were arrested this week for gambling for money with dice, and the former contributed $13.UU to appease the law and its officers, and the latter did the best he could in the same direction. Wilson County Citizen. The Walnut Valley Timet says that the at Louis Usage City and Walnut Val ley railroad company, recently incorpo rated under the laws of Kansas, has ma terial on hand sufficient to build one hundred miles of road. This company is to build a road from some point on the Carbondale line near Lawrence to Ar kansas City, by the way of Osage City and the Walnut valley. St Nicholas for Angast. We doubt if these vacation-days yield ny pleasure to the young readers of St. Nicholas greater than that of the maga zine. No days are too hot for the exer cise it affords; no monotony is to fixed but it will vanish before the appearance of this monthly novelty. As for the visitor itself, SL Nicholat wears always the jolly face which the good saint whose name it bears puts on during the holidays, is as merry and cheerful in the open air as at the fireside. It brings us this month a series of ex cellent contributions, all interesting and some of them pleasantly suggestive of mountain air and sea-breezes. "The Cruise of the Crusoe" for instance (a pro longed boat journey such as almost eve ry boy would like to take on some one of these summer days), hardly needs il lustration, since it is itself a very perfect picture; yet it has six characteristic and familiar scenes in pencil. There is an interesting paper on Umbrellas, with a picture of the first umbrella in the streets of London. "A Gunpowder Plot" is the storv of an assault upon a hornets' r.cst, in which the strategy of the attacking party has to contend against the power and numbers of the garrison, and is natural, humorous and pathetic, appealing strongly to the in terests of all boys, nose Merry uooice gives us a lively controversy in rhyme between two chickens on that familiar subject always a fruitful source of con tention the origin of the species. Besides all this and much more, there are stories by Helen C. Weeks and Emi ly Huntington Miller, a paper on the collection and preservation of "sea weeds;" a description of "A Boarding- School in 1570;" and a deb'ghtfut story tor girls. "The Pine-stick Doll." with its beautiful illustration the frontispiece of nie uuuiuer unwo oy juiss Jessie Curtis. "Jack-in-the-Pulpit." with its para- grams and conundrums, is still as wise and witty as ever , and worthy of notice also is a bright little iiogle called "Hans tliA Small 17aniiiinaw '' Brirh ! miMriif in which the iceberg is as refreshing to us as the Polar Bear is terrifying to the little fur-clad northerner.

Cheese factories have increased in nnm ber very largely in Kansas during the past two years, and so far as we have ob served reports from them they all seem to be doing remarkably well. At least the success of so many of them shows that the business depends upon the sagac ity with which it is conducted, and that there is nothing in our climate or grasses which renders the making of good cheese in Kansas a matter of more than ordinary uimcuuy. with our cheap lands and abundundant feed we ought to be able to compete with any part of the country in this business. The cheese factories in Nejsr York depend upon land worth from! sa to au per acre. The feed of a cow in that State costs, at least, double what it does .here. Labor is just about as high. Hence, the Kansas cheese maker has largely the advantage an advantage which in the long run must tell power- imiy in me Dusiness. - , California's surplus f grain this year will not exceed three-fifths of last year's. Scribner for August. The publishers ot Scribner call atten tion to the series of articles by Col. War ing, now being published in that maga- ziue, under the title of "A Farmer's Va cation." These papers are claimed to be among the most amusing as well as prac tically valuable illustrated articles which have appeared for some time past. Col. Waring is well known as an engineer and a farmer, as well as a graceful and enter taining writer. j.n bis recent .European travels he was naturally attracted not only by picturesque phases, quaint scenes and quaint people, out also by the va rious agricultural customs and devices. His article in the August number de scribes the pretty isle of Guernsey, and tells a great deal that is of interest about the famous so-called Alderney Cow which is here "at home."
