Tli? Capital <|u?Ntlon.
We hail a pleasant call yesterday from
Judge Camden, of Clarksburg, who i? actively
on the stump on behalf of that
place for the Capital location, lie has
spoken in Calhoun, (Jilmer, Upshur,
Lewis and other counties, and reports
the outlook as encouraging, although he
admit* that a necessity h laid upon
Clarksburg to lie up and doing if she
would win the prize, lie say* that the
advocates of Charleston are doing their
best to arouse sympathy for their town
by representing that tho "Third District'
has been'made the Ireland of West Virginia.
They neglect to say anything ol
the immense donation thai was made bj
West Virginia to the Chesapeake <fcOhir
railroad?(of her entire interest in thai
road)?which was a gift to the people o
the Third District ol the moat nia^nificen
The Charleston Courier which iiutneili
aleljr alter the Capital was removed t(
Wheeling, proceeded at once to shon
that it was no particular loss to Charleston,
is now showing how the re-locatioi
of it will set things to humming once mor
in that antiquated town. Here is a speci
men of its argument:
"If the Capital is located here the pric
of labor of all kinds will Imj increased
The necessities of life cost as much as eve
they did, but the wage* of workingmei
are at the lowest ebb. The location of tin
Capital at Charleston will increaco wago
without increasing the price of bread
therefore it is to your interest working
men 10 voie lor unarieuon.
Inasmuch nn the Capital is not to 1*
removed to Charleston until 1885, if ever
the "price of labor" down there must h
exceedingly sensitive to fur off events.

I, Wells sends the above to us on

uncharitable insinuation. Perhaps if 1
was better informed himself he would n
be so suspicious of 'other people. I
ought to know that Peter Coouer's fina
cial viewa are not a novelty to the cou
try. On tho contrary they are old ai
etale. They were *own broad-cut throui
the land last year. We are not indin
to devote much of our space to republic
ing them. Mr. Cooper is not the patent
of any peculiar notions on finance. T
greenback iuue has been before t
people tbeec many years. It in general

platform of "more money and less m

American people that there is

Crop KeporlM. - p
Judge Camden, of Clarkaburg, inform* n ?
ua that the crops in Harrison, Lewis and Oil
Upther counties never looked better.
1 The graaa is perfectly splendid, and soia j|J01
the wheat crop. Corn is late but looks
' well. Col. Jacob Hornbrook, who has
; juat been down in Marahall, brings the
same report from that county. Previous gjJjJ
to the late rains the prospccts were that
1 the grass would be short and hay go
, up in price. Now hay is heavy on the
market. The
1 The crop reports from all parts of the
' country are cenerally very encouraging.
. The Chicago Tribune, however, of Friday
last, complains of "cold, damp weather
in all that part of Illinois," occasioning
some anxiety aa to the corn crop. Large
arena of land within the corn belt are re. p
ported to have been so much flooded that
they are not yet plowed, and very much ,enco
remain* implanted, with no prospect of for wl
immediate drying up. The northern IMP0I
counties of that Stale are looking pretty
, well, but people further south are com* a circ
ulainistr. We see nothing in these re> ntptini
, ports, however, to conflict with the assur ti
ances that wheat and oats are safe. r,j'c J
According to the Toronto Olobe, "the
Canada crops make vigorous advance- j^.or,

tine growing weather. Wheat in looking menu

e glowing account: *ou

ed, yet up to this writing no arrivals of k

0 from the central and northern parts of the .J

havo nothing cheering respecting cither * ?:
,* barley or wheat. The grain valleys of :* l.
18 the San Joaquin, Salinas ami ?ome others m k
i- of lesser note are almost desolate by l .
reason of the protracted drought, while jj, .
there are other sections of the State that p j
hist year were too wet for setd or even t '
e cultivation which will this season pro:
duce enormously. The tule lands of the
n foothills and the cultivated islands on the ..
. main rivers will produce immense crops ..
of barley and wheat this year, and all go
