?Mr. Dodge, Htatintician of the Depart
raeni oi Agriculture, reports as tne ro
cult of au investigation of the lonsex,
from diseases, of swine during the pant 111
month*, the destruction of four million
auimalrt of all ages, and a money low oi
more than twenty million dollars. Onefifth
of the reported loss occurs in the
Htate of Illinois. Next in prominence arc
Missouri, Iowa and Indiana, which together
lose $10,000,000. Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi and Louisiana have
nearly as large a per centage of loss in
number*, aggregating in value $1,500,000
Reported losses are very small in New
England, the country bordering on the
great lakes and Pacific coast. Of the remaining
districts West Virginia comet
nearest exemption, and Ohio and the Atlantic
coast States stand better than the
alluvial districts. The apparent loss ii
equivalent to one-third of the stun ol
exports of pork products last year. It in
somewhat greater thau usual, eliciting
demands from correspondents for a com*
petent scientific investigation by the Government.
The Great Speculation in bread
Htuift, says the Philadelphia Ledger, which
recently caused such rapid advances in
prices overreached itself. There has
lately been a steady decline, and, under
the influence of favorable crop report*
now coming to hand from the graingrowing
districts, the decline promises to
continue. There in no reason why Americana
should permit the war between
Turkey and Russia to inllict on consumers
hereabouts two or three dollar* more
for a barrel of Hour, and nearly a dollar
more for a bushel of wheat; and the speculators
*ho caused these unwarranted advances
are now paying the penalty in
losses caused by the dccline. Prices ad
vanced at a much greater ratio in the Atlantic
ports than was warranted by the
European market, and there was not the
correspond! ng advances at San Francisco.
Hence,the Californians, finding they could
undersell the Atlantic market for European
export, began to uvail themselves
of the opportunity, and the Sun
Francisco wheat market, which had
been almost dormant, sprang into sudden
activity week before last, with large en
K.??i-mivui? tor miipiut*nih 10 r<uropc. 11
is quite |iofli*ible that the discovery of
this may have accelerated the decline in
wheat and Hour here, but whatever may
have been the cause, it is none the leva
true that there is a steady downward tendency
now in breadstuff* priccs everywhere.
Not very Jong ago there was
aim oil a phrenzy to ship breadstuff* to
Europe, all the vessels being engaged
that could bo got hold of, to carry cargoes
that were sent out on ventures, hoping
that future necessities would enable
them to be sold at large profits. It is
probable that some of the shippers ol
these cargoes wish now that they had not
dono it. The grain growers will not suffer
by the decline, for they got nono ol
the advance. It is gratifying to find thai
the prospect now is that our own people
are not to pay so much for wheat nnd
Hour, and that if any future advance shall
come about, the farmers will share the
benefit of increased priccs.
The illoumlNTllIc Library uuil
Mounusville, May ."1st, 1S77.
Being invited by a friend to attend the
ineetiag of the Moundsville Library and
Literary Association, on last Friday evening,
I did no, and beg leave to state
through tho friendly columns of your
paper what 1 flaw and heard
there. When I arrived at the llall O. L.
ilolliday had the lloor Bpeaking to the
affirmative of the following resolution:
"Rtsolxed, That Turkey is justifiable in
her attitude to tho European rowers," or
something to that effect.
Judging from the closing part of his
speech he delivered a very able argument,
though I apprehend from his manner he
ww performing a duty, rather than
speaking from choice, lie wan followed
by Mr. C'riswell, who by tho way was the
mover of the resolution, and who to all
appearance in sentimentally in favor of
the affirmative. W. II. II. Showacre followed
him, speaking very earnestly in
favor of the negative, lie reviewed the
past history ol Russia and Turkey in a
manner that showed that he had beer
posting himself for the occasion. Capt.
>y. ij. uriuges upoKo 10 tiio at formative
He made some good points, but did no!
speak with that vim that should charac
terize one speaking for what he honestlj
felt to be right. F. II. G'rago spoke on
the negative, and as no one espoused thi
affirmative just then J. W. cCarrihei
earnestly advocated the negative. Hi
was followed by Dr. 0. W. Dodd, aftoi
which, so many wishing to speak, andai
it was growing lato, on motion tho ques
tion was laid over until next meeting
when it will again Ihs discussed. 1 fount
the association in good condition. Geo
Edwards, E<q., ij the presiding officer a!
preient, and the members comprise th<
principal men of the town. I spent ?
very pleasant evening, indeed. Running
across the centre of the hall
is a large table, on which ii
found nearly all the principal dalies of
our owu and adjoiuing States. One end
of the hall is furnished with shelving
capable of holding moral thousand volumes,
and already it contains several
hundred volumes. Mj impression is that
the association will noon bo a great powei
for good in Moundnville. It is strange
that more of the people of our town uo
not talco an interest in this Association,
and it is passing strange that so few oi
our people even havo a knowledge of iu
existence. I havo heard some wondet
why our papers do not say more about it
than they do. Wo would kindly suggest
to the editors that were they to take the
p*ins to attend the meetings they could
find items for n good local each week,
For our own nart we will go again, and
we are sure that would others gp onc?
they would feel like repeating the visic.

a severe engagement that occurred in
October, 1864, about 25 miles northwest
of Petersburg, Va., where his father's
command was covering the right wing of
General Robert E. Lee's army. At the
time both of Governor Hampton's sons 1
were acting as his aids, and when young ,
Preston fell the father galloped recklessly
to the spot, followed by his Adjutant
General, Major Barker and Wade Hamp- 1
ton, jr. Both of the last named were severely
wounded while Governor Hamp- <
ton was lifting tho dead body of his boy

a system which had grown very
popular out West, by engaging a Chicago
firm to procure him a decree of divorce
from a Beaver county (Utah) court without
his going any nearer to the territory
than Chicago, and then married again.
[ Ilis first wife brought suit against him
, on tho charge of fornication in living
i with the second woman, and the jury
i found him guilty, the penalty being six
J months in the county jail. The judge
j ruled very properly that the Utah court
, had no proper jurisdiction in such a case,
and therefore could not grant a legal
I divorce, and the Supreme Court will
; probably sustain hia rulings, in which
; case a small army of people similarly

! themselves in a very awkward position. |

P AN-PRESB YTF.IU AN COUNCIL
It ft Approaching SeMlon at Edln
Imrgh?Lint ot DelegitM Ap
pointed by the General AMem
It hu been ascertained that there ar
forty-eight independent organitationi o
the Presbyterian Church, although thee<
churches have hitherto had no bond o
union. Yet, as they hold substantial!,
the same creed, a strong feeling ha
arisen that they should become better ac
quaintaf with each other and co-operat
for good purposes.
The formal proposal of Presbyteri
in federation was made November 2C
1872, at the tri-centenary meeting, com
memorative of the Scottish Reformation
held in Philadelphia, in May followin,
motions approving of the object wen
carried in the Oenoral Assembly of th
Presbyterian Church in America and o
tho Irish Presbyterian Church.
In October following the Evangelica
Alliance met in New York, when a pre
visional committee there api>ointed, ad
dressed thirty-eight churches, nskioj
their countenanc^and concurrence, and i
pajwr wan drawn up explanatory of th
principle* and aima of the movement. Ii
the summer of 1H74 meeting* of friend
wero held in London, Belfast and Edin
burg, and it wan ngreed to organise tb
whole scheme at a convention to be heli
in London in July, 1875. At this meetin,
there were deputies from twenty of th?
principal Presbyterian Churches througl
out the world. The meeting lasted onl<
three days, but during this brief perioi
an agreement was come to as to the principles
held in common bv the churches
and a constitution was tlrawn ont. I
was agreed that the first council ahouh
be held in Edinburg in July, 1870, but t
had to bo adjourned till tho fir?t week ii
Julr, 1877, in conacquence of the Centen
Tho council will meet in Edinburg 01
Monday, July 2. In tho evening then
will be n reception. Next day thecoun
cil will be formally opened byadiacoura
bv the Rev. Dr, Flint, Profenaor of The
ology In the Univeraity of Edinburg. I
will continue in neaaion a week or tei
dayi, during which time important pa
nera will be read and addreaaea deliverer
bearing on the spread of the Goapel ii
varioua countries. At thia meeting of th<
council, in all probability, atepa will l?
taken toward a union of the difleren
branched of tho Presbyterian Church.
