At the lat ler place there will l>c a joint diacuuion olthe flaimi o/Clarknburg and Charleston. We are informed by letter that Henry 8. Walker denies having written any sucli editorial! aa that quoted by tin an appearing in hia paper in February 1875, lit which Charleston wa< congratulated, as it were, on baring got rid of the Capital. We hate only to nay that the editorial in question appeared at the time named in Walker'a paper, and those who aro curious in the matter and will examine the fllea of his paper will find it there, Trenton county neetm to be waking up to the importance of getting out a full vote on the 7th of August, and at a mass meeting bold at Kingwood a few days ago passed a resolution providing lor the Appointment of a committee of ten in each district of the county, whose business it should be to "give as general notion as poesible to the people of the object of the vote to be taken, and the time of the election; and to secure as large and general attendance at the polU as possible." A correspondent of tbc Oreenbrier Independent, as showing the inequality of expenditures in the various Congressional districts of the State, says that the government of the United States spent $200,000 at Wheeling and $100,DOG at- Parkersburg for Custom Houses This is probably true, but we an not aware that the people of the First Congressional District participated it the benefits of these expenditures outside of the cities named. Tliey were purelj local. But not ho with the $(>20,000 tint hnvo been expended on the Kanawht river, (or the improvement of its navigation from Charleston to its mouth, am not mo the large amount of money expend <l hy the State of Virginia on the Chesapeake iV Ohio road and turned over tc that company as a bonus by the State ol Went Virginia. J'.nh of the papera published at New Creek, or Kefwsr City, Mineral county support Clarksburg, because, as they say, Martimtburg has no chance, and thu choice in between Clarknbnrg am! Charleston. We quote from the la*! Tribune as follows: "It will be remembered while the tem porary seat of government was at Char leston what inconvenience county am' State otlicers of Mineral, Grant, Hard] and other counties iii this district expert enced in carrying on othcial correspondence. Sheriff, assessors, Stated at tor rjt'VH, court c:lerks, ?fce., were often hin tiered and delayed in the transaction o: important business because of the delaj in forwarding and receiving mail uiattei to and from the Governor, Auditor ant! other heads of State department*. Ehhi ern and western newspaper correspondent! writing from Charleston during session? of thu Legislature, ridiculed the location of a State House inaccessible either by rait or navigation. Member* of the Legislature, when the rivers were frozen up, traveled like emigrant* to the ''Black Hills" to attend their meeting*, in short, the pressure was go strong againsl Charleston as a suitable Capital site thai a Legislature representing the people removed it bark to Wheeling. The same inconvenience and objections exist to day, and for our people who felt then most to vote for the permanent locatior of the Capital nt Charleston would In suicidal folly." Tit* Wheeling Intkllhikkuer is re juicing over the fact that tho mills art making nail* from old nail*. It wil take a long time to make the trade believe that there in any sugar-coating proce*< or other dodgo that will makegooc: nails from old nails, and the Wheeling manufacturer* had better keep dark or the subject, utiles they desiro to jeopard he the good namo their wares have had Tho Imtklligkmcku need not take nnj credit from the discovery that old raili need not go through the puddling furnnce thus waving So 25 per ton.?PiUtbury) Manufacturer. The above paragraph purports to bo J legitimate comment on something tha should have appeared in this paper. I is, however, nothing of the kind. Inatcai of that it is a fabrication of the Manufac lure't own concoction, clear through, got ten up to apparently afford the editors chance to lire off something about Wheel ing nails that otherwise ho would hav< had no pretext for saying. To begin with, the Wheeling mills an not makinff nails nut nf nl.l mil* not even one mill?and iherefon are not in any immediate dan gcr of losing their long standing reji utatlon. There have been (all told * far an we know) three kegs of nails made in part and whole out of old rail* in thi city. They were made under the supei ' vision of Mr. Lewis Jones, of the Atn Mill, to tent his own personal ideas i regard to converting old rails into nai plate, and we have not heard of any c the mills following up the experimen with anything further in the same direc tlon. We had occasion once before to poiu out to tho Mtinu/adurcr the injustice i had done to Wheeling by a very crud and reckless statement in its editorii columns, and we supposed that inasmuc' as the publishers might value the pi tronage, if not tho respect, of the iro; men down this way, that they would I more careful in the futuro. But they d not seem to show any desire to chang their unreliable style of stating things. HUE RKtOllD. JellerMOuvillA?ftSlhOOO. J kkmr80xvili.il, Ikd? JiiIj T.-Th entire saw mill* of I). 8.

A Boise City dispatch aay? the follow ing is nn extract Irom a letter received e here from Major M. A.Connoyer, Indian Agent for many years at tho Umatilla reservation, lie has lived in that country and has been personally acquainted t with the Indians spoken of in hi* letter J for over thirty-five vears: The Indians referred to in his letter 1 embrace every thing within reach of the hnstiles except tho Bannocks and Piutes. "On this reservation, the number of In- ] diana last January was 682 men, 167 ( women, 202 boys and 167 girli. Now I have some more?I think an addition*of about 200?and the Indians are all here." "Two only are at Lapwai, and both are very friendly to the whites. None have gone to join the hostile Indians. 1 estimate the Indians on Ynkama Reservation, and tho renegade bands on the Columbia river, from Celils to White Bluff, at about 2,000. I know nothing of other tribes north. These Indians will not take up arms against tho whites. I am also sure theC?ur d'Alenes will remain friendly. The reports of the Umatillas moving to join the hostile Indians are false. Noue have gone, and 1 cannot believe they will go. The chiefs and head men of this reservation are keeping their youtig men close at home, and 1 do not think any can leave without being discov- ' ercd."

" "Looking Glass wishes to come in with i* his band, Watkina states, and Joseph has j n crossed the Salmon, ana is making east | ^ tor the [Jitter .Koot countrv, with General Howard ftt hiaheeli and Whipple barring 0 the way; that Joseph, thus harassed, is ;c on the point of breaking up. There are no signs of other Indisns taking a hand." INDIANS VERY DEMONSTRATIVE. The second telegram is dated the 5tU, and says the following was received from Captain Perry, dated atU A. M.of the 4th e at Cottonwood: * "The Indians havo been around us all i* day in force, and are very demonstrative. - Last evening Lieutenant Rains, ten sold iers and. two citizen scouts were killed. 0 Had not Whipple, with his whole comr mand. como to our rescue, my little party I, would have been undoubtedly taken.

Instead of the Second Infantry, as directed, 1 have determined to send it as 3eneral Howard desired?that is, by rail to San Franciaco, steamer to Portland, ihence by boat to Lewiaton. The troopa it aod en route to lioiae, Idaho, will do lufficient, 1 believe, for that district, and if not, it can be more readily rcinforced ,han that of Columbia. I have ordered ill the troopa from Fort Yuma ?two :ompaniea?to Boise, and have broken up lamp at Independence, and sent the company to theaame destination.

Here sixteen mportant ranches were discovered, confining a largo amount of mens'clothing, igars, Hour, Indian blankets, Ac. A arge band of Indian horses and some excellent beef were also captured. This will >e a serious loss to the Indians, and has incouraged the troops now pursuing Joeph's supposed track with all possible need.

London, Jul/ 7.?Concerning the situation on the Danube we have no new information from any quarter, except denial* HQ of the first hasty reports of a rapid ad* vaiice of the Kussiaus. Tirnova in not in their hands nor is not likely to be, u* the Turks probably mean to hold the line of gg Zanitra, if they can, and Tirnova is very favorably situated for strong defenses. The fighting, thus far reported, cannot have amounted to more than out . post affairs, for the Russians are ,n not yet prepared for any serious 1 work. The Turkish quadrilateral re mains intact, and in not "lens threatening to the 120,000 Russians said to be across i|*t the Danubo atSiatova than if General 1 Zimmerman had not crossed at Ihrail and swept the Dobrudncha. His 30,000 uieu must connect with the garrisons of the three fortifie<l position* of Kuntendij, Bilistria and Varna before they can render effectual help to tho army now at , . Bistova. In some way provision must , IB bo made against the Turkish , forces about Nikopalis and Widdin , before any serious advance .upon , Balkans can be undertaken. Nothing is yet known ot the Turkish dispositions, except that the headquarters remain at Bhuiula, where Redif Tasha, Minister of ' War, haii joined Abdul Kcrim and a conn- ' cil has been established, under whose 1 direction the campaign will be prose* ! )k cuted, possibly with more vigor than heretolore, as the only good quality gen* erally conceded to Reuif Pasha is energy. The Turkish Danubo tlotilla remain , supine, while a single pontoon bridge at j Ristova is permitted to supply a large , g. Russian force with provisions and war . material. The bridge is reported as l~ very weak; that it has broken of its own I weight several times in the past week. ce uub ui mu iiuu utuun liugiu jiihuu luv Russian army in a desperate noeition, for J* the country along the Turkish side of the m river would not keep them many ] days if thev were deprived of their com a missary. It was reported, recently, ( fl8 that llobart Pasha contemplates an , lte operation of this nature on the j Danube, under his personal dircc* , tion, but has thus far been restrain- ( ed by jealousy on the part of the Turkish | ^ Paahaa. Nearly all accounts from the ja seat of war in Asia Minor agree that the jy Russians have met with serious reverses, but their positiou does not appear to be | !jj as thoroughly compromised an would be inferred Irom the earlier dispatches by j way of Erzeroum. , ie THE MOST SIWSTEll | re feature of the Russian situation in the < in* almost utter absence of oflicial bulletins 1 es from the Grand Duke Michael, which e* hel]>ed to keep un informed of the pro* h, greHN of the Russians. tie The following are the positions of the a- respective forces n? near as can lie ascer* lie talned: The Russian left after advanc- I >e ing to Delibaba has now turned back on I le- iu line of advance and is marching ou i to Bayazid, which is still invested by irreg* d- ulars from Van.
