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

river, (or the improvement of its navigation
from Charleston to its mouth, am
not mo the large amount of money expend

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:

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 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

not seem to show any desire to chang
their unreliable style of stating things.

PEACEFUL UMA1ILLAH
! 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." '

"Indian Inspector Watkins, who has

0 eral Sullv, here, that thin success and !
. General Howard's vigorous action are
' producing marked results.

- Last evening Lieutenant Rains, ten sold

General Howard's application for more
troops. "Kkklkr,

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

lamp at Independence, and sent the company
to theaame destination.

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.
