Kidder, our delegate inCongress, is just at this time in the wilds of Minne sota with a fishing party. It is under stood that he will come out of the wil derness in a few days. CoL Lonnsberry in the Hills. The daily papers of Tuesday announce the arrival of Col. Lounsberry, editor of the Bismarck TRIBUNE, in complimenta ry terms. Well they may. There is not a man in the Union, who has been a bet ter friend or done more to develop the resources of the Black Hills than Col. Lounsberry. The railioad strikes are all over. No good accomplished, and many valuble lives lost, and millions of dollars worth of property destroyed, but the probabilities are that a working man's party will be inaugurated all over the United States What influence this new organization will have on the future destinies of the coun try, remains to be seen. It is much the best way, however, to settle the whole business through the ballot box. United States We have used considerable industry as well as expense in trying to find out who the new marshal of the territory is, but up to this time we are unable to give the desired information. We are still in hopes the Raymond means our Capt. J. W. Raymond, but, of course, are not sure. The Dakota Herald, of a recent dais, -ays "that the President has tendered the ap pointment to John H. Raymond, of Mis souri. The commission makes it J. B. Raymond not J. H. or J. W. However, time will tell. Where the Money is, Sec'y Sherman says that there are $60,000,000 ot greenbacks deposited in the vaults of the United States treasury for safe keeping, upon which the Inter Ocean truthfully remarks: The iron vaults serve in lieu of stock ing legs. No wonder times are clcse. What we need is a state of affairs that will bring out this idle currency and give it circulation among the people. The large wheat crop in the west this fall will have a tendency to circulate some of this surplus capital, but if the owners can afford to salt down so much money without drawing any interest, the rest of the world can stand it. Southern Brjzota Itnoc. One hundred and fifty harvesters and reapers have been sold in Sioux Falls this season. The recent sore threat epidemic which prevailed among the children in Bon Homme county so malignantly, has en tirely ^disappeared, and all those who at suffering therefrom are now conyp.les cent, Springfield Times, Niobrara Pioneer Mr.Jos. K. Steer, whom we mentioned recently as having been discharged from the Santee Agen cy, has been re-instated. Petitions have been circulated among the Indians by both parties, but the one praying for his retention considerably overbalances the other. Farties who are good authority on the subjeet, say that the Bohemians in the* Niobrara valley have the finest wheat they ever saw in any place, and they have traveled extensively in a number of states in the Union. Sioux Falls Pantagraph: Some un worthy perverter of veracity has tele graphed to a Wisconsin newspaper that Dakota's wheat crop has been "injured one-tenth part by the grasshoppers. A mere wholesale fabrication could not possibly have been invented. On the contrary the 'hoppers have, as a general thing, left wheat entirely alone, and the whole amount of their, depredations thus far, giving the largest margin possible, will not amount to one two-hundredth part of the entire crop growing. BY TELEGRAPH. Special to the Bismarck Tribune. RUSSIANS BADLY WHIPPED. ST PAUL, Aug. 4th.—The SEVEN MILKS. Lossin killed and wounded is estimated at seven thousand. The disaster is so complete that the Russians will be obliged to withdraw all forces south of Balkans, except, perhaps, at Balkan pass. The Russians have also met with re verses elsewhere along the Danube and in Asia, around Ezeroum. Reinforce ments are being hurried forward to both Russians and Turks, and the latter are moving to follow up their recent suc cesses. CREMATED. Ten girls and two or three men were bunted in a box factory at Cincinnati yesterday. In Pittsburgn seven men, while lining a furnance, were precipitated into the fiery volcano by the burning of the ropes supporting the scaffolding. Two were taken out dead, and the others are not expected to live. THE STRIKE IS OVER, and the strikers are resuming business, except in the mining districts, where nothing is being done. There was no disturbance yesterday, but considerable excitement prevailed. EUROPEAN WAR. ST. PAUL, July in 26th:Grain harvest is in full blast in this county, snd fully one half of the wheat and cat crops will be cut this week. Never before in the histoiy of this county has the cereals promised such a large average yield, and farmers are all in high glee over their abundant harvest. Elk Point is to organize a juvenile tem perance society. There are two thousand healthy shade trees in Elk Point, and they add greatly to the beauty of the place. a letter to the Secretary of 'War, says that when the new posts at Big Horn and Tongue rivers are occupied by a strong garrison, Sioux Indians can never regain that country, and they Hay is only worth VOL. 5. BISMARCK, D. T., MONDAY, AUGUST 6,1877. Russian de feat at Plevna seems to have been disas trous in the extreme. The road to Si menitza was blocked by retreating troops, rushing pell mell along without order ambulances, horses, wagons and soldiers jammed together in indescribable confu sion. The mass extended in unbroken line for 6th,—The London Times correspondent at Buclarest thinks the panic in Roumama groundless, and that the Russian defeat at Plevna will certainly be retrieved. Schipka pass, held by Russians, is strongly fortified. LARGE REINFORCEMENTS are constantly arriving at Constantinople and are being immediately forwardedto Adrianople. The Czar has issued ukase ordering the immediate organization ot an entire corpse of imperial guards and several dther divisions to join the army in Bulgaria without delay. Another ukase orders the movement ot one hun dred ^eighty-eight thousand and six hundred men of Landwehr. The situation of THE STRIKE in the mining districts of Pennsylvania, remains as heretofore telegraphed. Strikers still hold out and work is at a standstill. The railroad strike is over, and regular business has been resumed on all roads. Gov. Hartranft has is sued a proclamation congratulating State troops for gallant conduct is resisting the mob at Pittsburgh, and condoling friends and relatives of those who fell in that struggle. GEN. SHERMAN Trill be forced to remain at agencies or take refuge in British Possessions. CHIEF JOSEPH has gone to place his women and horses in a safe place in the mountains, and will return to Comas Prairie in seven days, when he says he will burn the grain and then go to Willcw villa. Black HOls It ens. The Champion says: A forty stamp quartz mill passed through^ town Sunday. Cur reporter was unable to learn the destination of the mill, but he contented himself with the assurance that it belonged to this section. There is bound to be a stampede to the Castle Creek coun try. Every report from that section is calculated to produce this resuit. Fifty cents to the pan is consid ered a small find en that creek. $10.50 a ton. Laet year at this time it was worth considera ble more, but if the "government coffee coolers" continue to clean out the hay camps throughout the country, as they have during the past month, there will be no hay for love or money. Hall, of the Northwestern Express and Transportation company is a rusher. He received twenty-four wagen loads of freight on Sunday and sixty on yester day, but still we were unable to observe any airs about him. He didn't claim to own the trains. Col, C. A. Lounsberry, editor of the Bismarck TRIBUNE, a newspaper devoted to the interest of the Hiils, and one of the best journals in the west, is in town. The Colonel is a big bundle of personified sunshine, and we suggest that our citi zens take him in and do the square thing. He will appreciate it. There was an essay of ore from near Harney City, made at Chicago, that show silver $10,143.23 per ton. RIVER NEWS. A8RXTALS. Ashland, Williams, Tongue River. Kate Kinney, Consoll, Bnford. DEPARTURES.

The Odor of the Human Body From Nervous Affections. Dr. Hammond's Addren to the Neurological Asso ciation. Dr. Hammond called attention to some facts in regard to the natural odor of the body in the human species, and of the faculty which some of the lower animals possessed—that of differ entiating between the odors of differ ent individuals. Besides the inherent odor of the body there was reason for believing that an entirely different one may be given off, not only as a conse quence of disease, but as a result of economical disturbance. During the middle ages manifestations of the kind in question were not uncommon in the persons of both sexes and were attribu ed to miraculous power. That such cases existed was probable, |not, how ever as a special gift of God, but as a neurosis similar to other instances which had come under the doctor's ob servation. Cases were then eited of a number of the more important instances ameng the saints, who were consid ered highly odiferous. So far as the author of the paper was aware there had been no attention given to the sub ject in the relations now under notice. The cases cited as bearing upon this point were briefly as follows: A young married lady of strong hys terical tendencies, from whom, during a paroxysm, an agreeable odor similar to that of violets, was exhaled only from the left lateral half of the anterior of the chest. At such times the pres piration was remarkably increased in this region as compared with the cor responding part opposite. The odor was perceptible at a distance of several feet, but was entirely absent during the intervals of the paroxysms. From an examination of an alcoholic extract of the odiferous respiration exhaled by this patient, it was presumed that the odcr was due to the presence of butyric ether. The local application of several remedies to the parts, among Thich wsre preparations of carbolic acid, soap and water and other alkaline substances, gave the patient only tem porary relief froa ilie odor but the internal administration of the salicylate of soda, in doses of five grains, entirely cured this lady of her violaceous edor, and the prespiration of the region was reduced to the normal character. A second case \7Z% that of In a third case a pine apple odor was emitted from the okin of the head, neck, and checi of woman whenever 3he was angry. A fourth case was thr.t of r. man who during frequent hypochondriacal peri ods, emitted a violaceous odor. No opinion as tc the actual and immediate cause of these odorous emanations Tras expressed, further than- that thej were duo to a nervous disturbance. Dr. Hammond passed around a small vial containing an alcoholic extract of the odoriferous perspiration of his first patient, which had a distinct violent smell also a second vial of the same extract, with the addition of bicarbon ate cf sods, smalling strongly of pice apple. The Bozeman Courier, cf July 19th, states that a raft of lumber, destined for Tongue river or the Yellowstone, had passed Shield's river all right. This is the first attempt to ran lumber down the Yellowstone. Next seaaon we hope to see pine lumber, in log, by the million, run down that river to cur city, and here manufactured into Iuni» ber. The running of lumber in rafts •S7ill never be a success on the Missouri, owing to the great amount of sediment In the water, which would soon deposit on a raft in sufficient quantity tc sink it. We hope some enterprising Konta nian will, the coming winter, cut a few millions of logs for use on the Yellow stone and at this place. They need have no fears of a market at good pri ces. Black Hill* Hews. Three acres of wheat in the Spearfish Valley, near Crook City, yielded $15 $250 $6,000 600 310 ung lady, in vrhosi the first exhibition of the odor (in this csce that of the pine apple) occurred contemporaneously with an attack of chorea. 36 bush els to the acre. The EIRefugio is shipping large quan tities of galena to St. Louis which yields nearly $5oo to the ton. Cruok City is improving very rapidly. A large number of buildings are being put up and rents are high. Twenty-one saw mills are in" operation in the Black Hills and lumber is now sup plied at to $2o per thousand. A large number of quartz mills are be ing put up in the Black Hills and in eve ry instance they are working with profit. Water is becoming low in most of the creeks in the Black Hills but the August rains will help the miners to a good ex tent. The Crook City Tribune reports the di*» coverj of quicksilver on Rapid Creek. It is believed a valuable lead will yet- be discovered. Troops have been sent to the Black Hills with a view to the protection of miners from the depredations of road agents and Indians. The commissioners of the county in which Deadwood is situated offer a boun ty 6f caught in that county. Dr. Burleigh is putting in smelting works on upper Rapid and is also work ing the deep diggings on Castle Creek with gratifying success. Three first-class hotels have gone out of business at Deadwood within the past few days. The Gen. Custer House has been turned into a sample and club room. Charley Collins has retired from the management of the Daily Champion and now devotes his attention to the weekly, which is one of the best papers in the Hills. The timber in the Black Hills is being removed rapidly. It is cut for cabins, worked into sluice boxes, built into piles of cord wood and much of it wantonly destroyed. Military companies have been organ ized at all of the principal points in the Black Hills and the people of that aurif erous region are prepared to give the reds'a bloody welcome. The streets of Deadwood are being sluiced for blackmailing purposes. The industrious miner hopes to compel the citizens to hire him to raise the block ade Vkhich injures business. Though the Black Hills are ever run with idle and dead broke men ye true laborer who will accept the situation and wresge at the tail end of a sluice box for teasonaL-le-wages are scarce Chas. Wolf, formerly of Bismarck, has forty acres of corn, oats, potatoes, cab bage, etc.. within the corporate limits of Crook City. The oats were harvested Aug. 1 st- Though on new ground the crops promise more than half a crop. The Bismarck TRIBUNE recently spoke of Fred Penhler as a member of the staff of the Deadwood Champion. The Cham pion repudiates and says Penhler left for the East with an overcoat and rifle be longing to attaches of the Champion of fice. The Deadwood Champion says the Ft Pierre stage company has "gone glim mering through the past like a school boy's tale, the wonder of an hour." In other words it has petered out completely and the stock has been disposed of at sheriff's sale. The Deadwood Champion says: "The Black Hills, the very district that the government officials and the Indian ring didn't want opened to white settlement, pays twice as much internal revenue tax as all the balance of Dakota Territory. Dr. Jennings, the collector of this district, took in for the month of May, $1,- for June, and $2,000 for July. Ail this money found its way into the treas ury. Not a cent cf it was lost in a dog fight or at faro. From (he Champion. We find the '.following items the Daily Times: Most of the claims on Deadwood and Whitewood gulch are being worked day and sight. There is a good opening for a quartz mill in the vicinity of Battle Creek, in the vicinity of Harney city. Chamber C. Davis made an essay of ore from the new silver district on Battle Creek that 6howed $8,(29.74 Some «f the silver quartz from Battle Creek is very light colored and gives the appearance of more sliver than quartz. They are doing well in the Harney district near Hayward, on their placer claims, and report comes in that they are getting out big pay. The silver district on Battle Creek has been staked off for miles since the new discoveries, and it is supposed to &e the richest discovery in the Hills. Mr. Tuller, of Sioux City, having read the Champicn article on the scarcity of cats in the Black Hills, and the specula tions to be derived by importing them here, has loaded up one hundred of them of all ages, sizes and quality, and is now on his way here. Another party in Chey enne also acted on our suggestion, and is bringing in a load. There'll be music in the air, and a cat-er-waul in hair when these feline marauding free lunchers ar rive here. Save your odd dimes and be come a domestic stock-raiser. ELECTIONS. States that are to vote this Fall __ Kentucky will hold the first State elec tion on August 6.

NO. 27. ABOUT ANITA DICKINSON. Her Family, Her Surgonnflfngt HerFntnre. Hew York Correspon denoe of the Baltimore Ameri can. I saw Anna Dickinson the other day, and the contrast between her life at home and the stormy episode through which she has passed was so marked that I thought your readers might be interes ted in assisting to trace it. Few people know Anna Dickinson as she is, or the sort of stock from which she sprung. She is generally supposed to have been a poor girl, of New England birth and parent age, with an assertive, dominant will, and strong but uncultivated intellect Nothing could be farther from the troth. She is a born aristocrat, if we have any such, able to trace her ancestry back 300 years, on the eastern shore of Maryland, on! the mother's side, and^through one Of the oldest and proudest of Pensylvania lines on the father's Her mother was an Edmundson—shareholding Quakers, until, in her mother's grandfathers time, a liberal movement in the'society obliged its members either to give up their slaves or resign their membersnip he chose to give them up. Her mother—her "patron saint," as she loves to call her—is a wo man of refined appearance and exquisite manners, who has always sustained her place in the very best society. As a girl, her most intimate friend was Miss Fish er—Sallie M. Fisher afterwards Mrs. John M. Clayton—and an illustricusman said «f her that she was *(the finest lady and most thoroughbred woman" he had ever seen. Anna Dickinson's grandfa ther on the father's side was a Pensylva nian nabob, whose ancestors had occu pied for six generations a plantation, or rather principality, of 2,000 acres, upon which he lived like a prince, and became, probably, somewlat of an old Pagan, for he quarrelled with his eldest, and, I be lieve, oldest son, Anna Dickinson's fath er, and the latter left his home, deter mined to make his own way in the world, which he did. He became a great whole sale merchant, a friend of James G. Bir ney, of Whittier, Joshua R. Giddings, and, in short, one of the founders of the Lib eral party. Unfortunately, however, he failed, and six months thereafter, before he had time to recover himself (for he was an "old-fashioned" merchant and had given up everything), he died of heart disease, dropping dead in the street on his way home from a Liberal meeting, where he had made, what there are per sons who still remember, the best extem poraneous speech to which they had ev er listened. Anna was the youngest of five children, one sister and three brothers, and there were plenty of rich relatives on both sides ho would have divided up the children among them and given the widow a home, but this did not suit her ideas. She wished to keep them together and rear them herself, and so she did, and did it so well that her son (one boy died) was Professor in the first cellege on the Paci fie slope at twenty, and if Anna did not share for quite so lenghthened a period (she left school at fourteen) in the ad vantages which her brothers and sister enjoyed, it was because she was the youngest, and elected not to do so, seeing that the long struggle was wearing upon her mother, and fearing that if she gain ed all she wished to give her in the way of scholastic training, it would be at the expense of that mother's life. Moreover, she has lost nothing. Experience has given her abetter education than books could have done. From her father, An na Dickinson inherits the ardor, passion and almost insane love of justice which distinguished her, while from her moth er comes the love of fine and rare things, the tenacity of purpose, the persever ance and determination to do or die, which are equally apart of her nature. Underlying the whole is a sensitive soul, which vibrates to every passing breath like the sensitive plant, and responds so quickly and truly to the winds that pass over it, that it almost depends upon them, whether it discourses sweet music or dis cordant sounds, like bells "fangled" and "out of tune." Anna Dickinson's home consists of an apartment shut in from everything but the breeze, which comes through the fo liaged spaces of one of the wide streets of New Yorkt Here she lives with her maid, her books, her pictures and her work, and here her intimates share her dainty lunch or quiet dinner, unpretend ing as to discription of viands, but exqui sitely cooked, and served in such rare old rhina, with the additon of such delicate bits of glass and antique silver, that the soul who loves such things is gladdened while the body is being satisfied Full and complete stock of Win js Liquors and Cigars at H. Cahn'd. 19 Several officers belonging to the regi ments stationed up the Missouri ani its tribuatries, left yesterday for their respective commands. In som3 in stances they were accompanied by their familes. They expect a long telioas ride up the river. Twelve Years After the War. Twelve years ago, Richmond, with 45,009 inhabitants, lay half in rains. Now she has rebuilt the whole of the burnt district. ba3 established 200 fac tories, and with a population of 70,000 people is the hand3ome3t city in the world. Norfolk ships near 1,000,000 bales of cstton this year, and has devel oped a trade in vegetables, fruit and fish which has extended through oar great Northern cities, across the Atlantic and has increased the value of lanis in the adjacent counties many hundred (old.—Danville Va) News.
