iiuine remark* before an Kuglinh agricultur.il
Hern iation on hi.**return home from
thi* country in which lie nllmleil to the
evil i lltfctn of our tarill. lie nnid that if
there w:i* :i Icmoii in public a Hair* which
li.- had learned in America, and which
Engliidimeu'who went there might beexpeeled
to learn, it wa* an inteiine conviction
of the evil* arising from the i-Vflcm
of protection ami from an inlljteil currency.
In America, he w;n Horry to nay,
Adam Smith'* hook was n* little rend a
they were told tin) Uilde w:im in Spain,
and he wn.H afraid that it would l?o a long
lime More public feeling in that country
w.hi 1.1 turn round in favor of free trade.
Considering thedeclincin the last two
year* of our importations frmu Knglaml,
ami the fact of the large balance of trade
iu our favor hut year, it in not nurprising
that the Kngliidi people fthould be warmly
in favor of free trade. America ha.
hImtavh bi-en one of their great market.*
fur the export of their manufactured
good*, and now to tinil in turning the
tallies on them, and sending them, henide
dticli load* of agricultural produce, increasing
shipment* of cotton good', and
cutting down ho largely our importation*
of iron, i* it any wonder that they are
exercised in favor of free Iradt?
Mr. Walter think* that it tvill be a
long time before the American* will be
educated up to the doctrinea of Adam
Smith iu regard to trade. He sjtcak* of
our depreciated currency in connection
with our anti-free trade notions. It
seems to u* Ihnt just there, an the owner
of tlu> greatest newspaper in the worhl, lie
might have made an exetiae if not an argument
on our behalf. We should have
I wen tempted, h.til we ht'Cii privileged to
hear Mr.Walter's remarks,to ask him how
a country suffering from an irredeemable
piper currency could possibly aflord to
indulge in free trade. We can understand
how a nation doing business in a
currency that command* a premium in
every part of the globe?(bat can buy
everything in the shape uf raw material
cheap for cash?that can pay its labor in
money that means a hundred real cents
on the dollar?we can, we say, understand
how such a people can consistently be for
free trade. Such a nation is England.
She depends on the whole
world for her innuendo supplies of
raw materials for her manufactures, and
she admits all such raw material free of
duly. She raiseH the luost of her revenue
hy cxcise and income taxes?ott'say half
a dozen articles iu (lie main?-and admit*
cotton and all such element* of her industrial
wealth and power free of duty.
Seeking a* she doe* a market among all
the nation* of the earth for what *he
manufacture* free of restriction?, she
necessarily must open her porta to Iree
trade. Not no, however, with a country
situated radically (liferent from Kngland,
and doing bu*inesa on the expensive bnnia
of a depreciated currency. Free trade
mean* to thi* country something very
different from what it mean* to Kngland.
It would have.meant sit any time during
the la*t fifteen year* the wholesale undermining
of our manufacturing interest*,
and for the reason that we have been
doing business with'mouey that could not
compete in it* purchasing power with that
of (ireat Uritain. To have abolished our
tarilV with gold at an average premium of
tiftv cunt* on the dollar would have l?een
fiiioidal. NVe could not have supplied
even our own market* with bar iron.
Kngland and llelgiiiui would have sold
iron in Pittsburgh and Wheeling.
Ah to what the future may bring Torth
in the way of tarill' modifications, that i*
an other matter. W?J are of the opinion
that the day* of what i* known a* a
"high tariff" are numbered in tliiit country
Despite what Mr. Walter says
about the American view of this subject,
we mo in the neap future a declining
(arill'sentiment. Hut thin decline cannot
come until our money re?t? upon a solid
specie ba^is. Then we can produce on a
par with other nations, and can hope to
compete with them in all the markets of
he world.
I'lie President nutf the I'lii'ty.
We observe that at the Hepublicnn
Conference at Secretary Sherman's house
at Washington, that our .neighbor, Mr.
Danford, who represents the Belmont
ili?rtiet in Congress, expressed the opinion
that there was no evidence before the
country that the President really desired
the good ot the Kepubicau party in the
course which he hail seen tit to pursue.
He aliuded particularly to his choice of
a Cabinet in which, Mr. D. atlirmed|
"there are at least three members who do
not care n straw what becomes of the
K*l>ublicftn party," meaning Mewr*.
Kvart*, Schurz axd Key.
N\e think'Mr. Danford i* forming concltmioiifl
theae days on a very narrow ham?.
And thin disposition on hi* pnrt in
?'Ot peculiar to liimaelf, nlllioiigh we do
not forget that lie has l>een hostile
ty the Preaidcnt froiu the very
ootoetof hi* adiuuitiaralion. Mr. Danford
iitono of thoiw who believe that the
I'rwldent made a grievous error when he
failed to recoguiw Chamberlain and
l'ackard aa theUoternora respectively,o*
South Carolina and Louisiana, and when J
ho put Key in his Cabinet. He believed i
then, and believes now, that the party
should have been run on in the name rut
in which President Hayes founil it, not-;
withstanding the fact that State after Slate'
was detaching itself from the Republican'
column ami going over to the Democracy.'
We premium to differ ill this mutter!
with Mr. Uanford ami with all who hold
hi* view of the President'* proper policy.
There in a time and ttlno ao end for
all policies. The Republican party, as
n live progressive parly, wan hound to
take cognisance of tho fact that it could
only for a certain length of time pursue
tin early rtcauflruvlion poliry. We are
among iliot-e who endorse the close grip
that wan inaintuinvd on the Southern
States all through the adoption of
tho constitutional amendments. There
was no way to uvoid the necessity 'that
was laid npon the Kepublican parly of
securing tit* results of the war to the
counlty by locking and bolting the revolutionary
tendencies uf the South and the
Democrutic party. Wu Hbotild have deplored
the return of the Democracy to
power n* long a* the logical and moral
results of the war remained unsecured,
NVe believe that theec results would
have been endangered liv the return
of that parly to power. Hut
that day lias alnrnt if not wholly gone.
The time in at hand when the axcemlnney
of even the Democracy necihVat distress un
at< it once did. Thank heaven the Amendment*
are in the Constitution and we arc
pant the dead point of danger in the matter
of iullation and repudiation.
This being the case, the time had conic
wiien President Hay en took the chair,for
a change. he is a statesman and he was
familiar with that maxim which teaches
that a law should cease to operate when
the rvanon f??r its enactment ceases. The
same U 11 no of a policy, General tSrant
expressed tlu> opinion, and gave it ait one
of hi < reasons for not recognizing Nicboils,
that the American |>eople no longer
saw any necessity for the bayonet policy in
the South, and were,therefore, averse to its
continuance. This also wa? the impression
of 1'ratident Hayes. He saw that the
time hat! come for a change and he had
the sagacity and the courage to adopt his ,
administration to it. In so doing he ha*
proved himself a wise, solid and safe Chief
Magistrate, and he can rest assured that
let the politicians at Washington annoy ,
him an 1 hey may fur the lime being he is I
sure tube sustained by the |*cople.
i iiKoiruueiiviiii: uoes hoi nceni j
to get nt tho point of our obj clion to its |
claim that Dunlap should receive the ap- ;
pointment of I'ostmaster. Our point in ;
that of all the people who voted he waa
the flioire of only a meagre number. The '
people ?'f Stcnbenville ?li?l not vote for *
him to nnv general extent, neither iCe?
publicans nor Democrat*. It in not likely 1
therefore that the l'ostoflicc'Department j
will a ppoint a Democrat to the otlicu who .
could not command even the support of i
his ovn party, and ignore Kepublicana :
who received a much higher vote.
Our other point is that the election a* ,
run under Hunter's management wears
tho njipearance of an attempt not to get
the heat man for Postmaster, irrespective
of party, hut rather to gain a p:utinan
victory. It will therefore pans for naught
at Washington.
At tlic late session of the Hoard of Director*
of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind
Asylum at Uotaney the vacancy in llie
musical department of the institution
was filled l?y the selection of Miss Fletcher,
of Staunton, Va, ami a new chair was
instituted for instruction in the art of
communicating to tho deaf and dumb by
lip movement. This movement is pusccptible
of pretty much the same range
of expression as communication by the
regular hand and linger movement, and
has some advantages over that method.
As nn adjunct to the old mode it is in valable.

1 may have left some sort of an imnres
flion that, in obedience to your reined,
you might hear from me on uiy arrival in
the old world, llavingonly a day or two :
ago got well settled down in a com fort a* \
ble resting place, 1 have for the tirst lime ,
an opportunity of giving you some of uiy .
observations and impressions. Enough (
ha? been written of ocean voyages. They
are quite common, and mino proved
quite the reverse of pleasant. Ah a plena- ,
ure ride it wan not a success. 1 feel quite i
certain the Company made a good per
cent 011 my board, an 1 only got to the <
table on the last two days of the voyage.
There was some satisfaction in the fact
that one fellow-passenger got one day's
leas good eating than 1. Ho did manago
by ureal perseverance, to get one day's
meal* in the saloon.
We caught a welcome eight of Ireland's ,
rocky coast on a beautiful sunlight morning,
something quite unusual, 1 am told,
for it nearly always rains there, llefore
leaving the vessel we were advixed, as a
very important matter, to purchase an
umbrella before doing anything elce. 1
earl V followed ihn ndvirn nml Imvx kt>nt
it a? my constant companion until safely
nettled hero. But let mo say a good word
for wet old England: My umbrella ban
never been put up for a moment. Fifteen
darn in England and nil over the Lake
District even, and yet never an occasion
to line an umbrella! It is doubtful if such
a fact was ever before told. The pant
summer lias been both here ami iti England
one of unprecedented wetness. The
harvests are at least a month late, and 1
j generally very poor.
I 1 found the farmers in Lancashire cutting
their wheat, Ac. On our arrival,
Sept. 18th, and during my visit in that |
| section, many second crops ot grass were
harvested. No where else have I seen
rich green fields, such splendid pastures,
I America never has such, I am sure. lint
Krass is about all that can be grown profi
laity so far north. The summer* arc so
ftiiort and cool that farm crop* do not
1 ripen well, and in Lancashire very little ,
farming is done, the farms generally? ,
what few aro there?being used for gra*!
Of courxc, your readers know Hat this
iiart of England is a great cotton manulnctllring
district. Here I spent ten days ,
miiong friends, ami visited half a doitu of i
the smaller cities, having populations of
thirty thousand to ono hundred anil twenty
thousand. Burnley, with a population i
of 60,000, has about two hundred cotton :
mills. And yet these t*o hundred chim- I
ne/i neml forth but little more nmoke
than the few chimney* of Wheeling.
Mure intention in paid to the conmuuplion
of mnoke, and various methods have
been devised to accomplish the desired
object. None, however, linvc jet proven
very ?ucce**ful, and more Im now accomplished
by skillful and careful Uring than
by any other method. They put coal on
(hi1 lire* frequently and in small quantilite,
anil thin the lires are kept nt n red
heat. The cotton trade in now flat, and
no money in made by manufacturer*.
Many articles of American tuake are sold
on thin nide. Everywhere 1 go free trade

colore, tlmt you need not be our*
prised to lienr of me lecturing against
the tHrifl' on my return. Would it Ik?
perfectly safe to do so in Wheeling? It
in astonishing to tind how ileep an interest
our English Iriends linve in our future
progress! After all, is it perfectly
certain that we are right and they wrong
on thin issue? The i|iieHtion would nut
be answered in the atlirnialive, I think,
by every citizen of Wheeling even.
My opportunities foreseeing something
of Knglish life and honied have km
good, since 1 found relatives and friends
on this side the water and have not been
living in hotels, Since leaving home j
liave been in the homes and nat at the
table* of the minister, phjaician, manufacturer
and working man.
One very noticeable thing in the plainliens
of diet a* compared with that of our
own country. If 1 were to venture on
an average bill of fare, it would be abom
this: Dreakfast (at 8 or SJ), bacon (luscious),
eggs, white and brown bread end
coflee; Dinner, roast lieef, potatoes, preserves,
bread and water; Tea, bread, tunter,
tea and cheese; Supper, no uniformily,
generally only a sort of lunch after
o'clock. Frequently, in the homes of
those who are in good circumstances, the
dinner is more elaborate and nearly always
served in courses, n practice tli.it
might with advantage be adopted by
Americans, as thus "bolting" one'* fond
is rendered impossible. Frequently, also
a lurch is eaten about tuiddny, nr.d the
dinner served toward* evening. Hut
four nuals, or eatings at leaM, are veiy
commonly indulged in; and at my present
boarding house we have some days lu.d
live, viz: breakfa?t, lunch, dinner, t?-a
and supper. This in a. practice that
Americans had U'tter not adopt.
Knglish homes are) scrupulously la-nt
and clean. For the pa* t live years, you
know, I have been in almost constant
search for dirt, and generally did not have
to search long. ller?? everything and
everybody looks clean. Kven the bouses
of the humblest classes, which I pcep?d
into as 1 passed along the streets, presented
uniformly a cleeii ami tidy appearance,
and very generally two or thrupots
of llowers set in the front window.
From my limited observation, 1 fe?-l in
clineil to way that many o( the hut tor cla.-s
>>f working people are more inttlliiccni
than their fellows on the western sid<-of
the ocean. This may Ik' due to the f.iet
that thin country is not curbed with the
importation of the worst elements of other
lands, an America it*. 1 have not seen a
single foreigner since setting foot on English
soil, until a North Carolina physh-hrn
greeted me in the ward.-* of the Koyal hi
lirmary (hospital)Jhere today. The lnw< r
order of operatives in the cotton mil is
:ire, however, ignorant and deb:n><d.
fheir great curse is drunknesM. .
I Fpent an hour in Hoi ton, a city of 1 !! ?.D00
people, and thereafttrilco was in pi >i;ress,
alul the streets were filled at midilay
with groups of drunken men. Hue,
in everywhere, workingmen ccetn to entirely
lose sight of the fact, that the only
and sure way to elevate themselves iiml
families to make their inllueuce fell in
the community, and to lliemselvea become
sapitalisM instead of laborers is to let 1
kv hirky strictly alone, to give their attrii- J
lion to business, and to improve leisure
liours by storing the ixiind with useful
information. Many, very many of the 1
mill owners of England of to-day wete
Ihemselves onco operatives, and others !
ire paving the way for the same end. '
Unfortunately these are the small minor - '
it V.
I cannot close thin desultory comuun.i:ation
without referring to the warm- ,
lienrtcd, cordial greeting extended to me
w an American by Englishmen where I
>ver 1 go. This wan {o be expected among
friends, but it has been the name nir.ee
leaving my friends. (.lentlemen on I lie
railroad cars eagerly converse about our
land, and always hare a kindly word for
lier and a heart? handshake at parting
with one of her humblecitizenfl. lint they 1
never fail to get in a word on the blessing's 1
i)f free trade. 1 have left England with '
a letter opinion of lier even than that 1
with which 1 came to her. 1 have enjoy- <
ed the beautifnl broad vnlleys and rolling
hills and green fields of Lancashire, the
lovely taken and rugged mountains and 1
most charming scenery of the "Lake Dis- 1
trict," but most of nil her bright homes
iiml friendly intercourse with her warmhearted
people. 1
At another time you may hear something
about the English lakes.

Col. K. 8. Stevens, general manager of
the Hannibal A St. Joe Jiuilroad, in an
interview laat evonlngaaid all the trouble
of that road had been produced by out*
aide parties, and that other roads, no
doubt, have had a linger in the pie. It ia
monstrous, he said, that a receiver should
be appointed for the road, and especially
as the road is not in default for a dollar;
that not one of its obligations has ever
been protested, and that the interest on
its bonds has never been passed, but alway#
paid in full. He further says that
the company is now in the possesion of
independent assets of over three millions
of dollars, subject to the control of the
Board, for the payment of whatever indebtedness
may bo against it, and for the i
improvement of the road-bed, laying steel
rails, Ac.
A sjK'cial from Jefferson City to the
Globe-Democrat says: The matter of the
appointment of a receiver for the Han*
mbal & St. Joe railroad wan laid before
the Supreme Court to-day in the shape of
an application by tho attorneys of the
railroad company fornn appeal from the
decree of Judge Brooders, of the Circuit
Court, and for a supersedeas huspending
the appointment of a receiver and staying
execution of hi* orders by the court.
After a brief speech by the Counsul on
the different sides the court granted till
Thursday for filing the objections to
granting an appeal.
The company's Counsel are Ex-Go v.
Willard, P. Hall, James C'arr,George W.
JUarley, of Missouri, and Henry Crawford,
of Chicago.
The New York attorneys for the complainants
aaking the appointment of a receiver
are Willis Hendershott, of New
York; Samuel F.Glover,of St. Louis;and
A. 8. Harris, of Chilllcothe. The company
are also represented by Mr. Mis*,
J. M. Hartshorn, H. If. Cook and A. W.
Uxecnleaf, of the New York stockholders.
The following telegram was sent from
Jefferson City, late to-night, with the request
that the Associated Press Agent
put it in his dispatches :
Noticing Mr. Griwold's card to the
New York World, and Mr. Hartshorne's
interview with a reporter of the St.
Louis Tiwim, wherein the statement is
made in the interercst of Jay Gould and
the Wabash Kailroail, 1 deem it my
duty to say that neither the Chicago,
Uurlington ?Sc Quincy U.K., the Wabash,
nor any other corporation nor Jay
Gould, has nor ever has had any interest
in the suit with the plaintiU' either directly
or indirectly. I further slate that
the application was in behalf of an honest
administration of the a 11 airs of the road,
in the interest of the people of the State
of Missouri and all others interested in
an honest management.

PnTsuuJum, October, 23.?The line of
the new railroad which is heing built
by the capitalists of this city and known
as the Pittsburgh & Erie Railroad, crosses
the track of the Lawrence & New Castle
road, a leased line of the Pennsylvania
road, at Mahonningtown, Pa. Last week
the latter company began grading for a
side track to be nlaccd four or live feet
below the grade of their main track, with
the intention of preventing the new road
from crossing their line. The Lake Erie
road, however, put a large force of men
on and succeeded in making the crooning.
Last evening a lare force of workmen employed
by the Lawrence & New Castle
road marched to the crossing and tore up
the newly laid track of the Lake Erie
Company. The latter road with a still
larger force of workmen relaid the track
to-day, and it was again torn up this
evening. Trouble in feared there tonight.
Twenty leading manufacturers of oil
barrel met here today, and unanimously
resolved to hold out for $1 40 per barrel.
The Standard Company ia endeavoring
to break the market l?y bringing in barrels

have agreed to close their
shops, and when the supply is exhausted
the Standard Company will have to agree
to the market price to prevent the complication
brought on by the journeymen
striking for a rise of 40 per cent, which
rendered it necessary to increase the
selling price.

The Mark Lane's weekly review of Llie
grain trade: The weather this aiituiun
has been very favorable to the Northern
agriculturist/, and the apprehensions,
felt some live or nix weeks ago for the
ultimate safety ol the crops, have proved
groundless in the North. Wintry weather
has set in accompanied by a heavy fall
of snow, and the outstanding corn, of
which,however,the quantity id inconsiderable,
will stand no chance of ripening.
The farmers appear determined to lose
no time in sowing, and have been devoting
their energies thereto rather than to
threshing out their wheat. This is testilied
to by the small supplies which have
been received at the country markets, ami
also the demand for seed wheat under
the pressure of an advance of 1 shilling
to 2 shillings per quarter which has taken
place in some cases. The improvement
lias not. however, been felt in Mark Lane,
where the factors have not been successfill
in establishing the advance, hut
nevertheless the tone of the market has
not l?een depressed for Khglish wheat,
The natural inherent strength of the
trade, based on the enormous consumption
requirements of the country, must lie
attributed to Oiu fact that although hut
Monday's return showed the week's imports
of foreign wheat to be not near U'y
000 quarter*. The previous rates were
maintained for all except American and
Indian clashes. We have now arrived
at that period which may he considered
the crisis in trade, as far as regards the
inlluence of imports on prices, l'her.qud
approach of winter will practically withdraw
Russia as the source of supply, and
if po marked a decline takes plane before
the actual closing of the Baltic ports,
there appears to he sufficient strength in
the trade to withstand the action of
'America without our present range of
values undergoing any change during the
winter. These remarks must only he
considered of value supposing that no
change occur* in political ? Hairs, tin any
demonstration by the nation* would
as certainly weaken the situation as a
sudden termination of the war would depress
\hc state of the wheat market. As
a teHt of the strength of tho trade, to
withstand action in the roads, it may lie
worth remarking that the averse weekly
importation of wheat to l^ondon, fince
the 1st of July, lias been 08,000 quartern
or very near 1,100,000 quarters in 10
weeks. Our local trade has been <juiet
with only moderate consumption. The
demand, necessarily, is no speculation.
The arrival of some recent heavy shipments,
from United States ports, reduced
the price of American wheat a shilling
to two shillings per quarter and
the same reduction has occurred iti Calcutta.
A better feeling is noticeable in
maize, and a slight improvement has
taken place on American, l'or barley and
oata trade has been dull, and former
prices are not exceeded. Arrivals of
wheat cargoes at the ports of call the pant
week have been small, but shipments
from the United States continue large.
Trade ruled dull at a fall of about a HhilJ
ling per quarter. Maize has been in good
demand both oil' tho coast and for shipment
at an improvement of fully a 0d
per quarter. Hurley steady wjthout quotable

The mitrkct still continues to improve
during the past week. The Southern buy*
cm an* buying a good smooth claw of
chunky young horses and mnrcs and paying
very good prices for them, but this
class of stock is coming in very slowly to
market, and are picked up fast as they
come in.
Wo have some Eastern buyers here
l hey are wanting ti better class of stock
than the .Southern buyers. Heavy draught
horses are still in good demand, and are
bringing good prices.
Mules sell very readily as fast they comc
in, but there are very few on the market.
