Speaking of the mammoth farmers and
farming in Oalllornia, a San Francisco
correspondent of the St. Louis Republican
says: "Dr. Hugh J. Glenn made liis tirat
purchase of the Jacinto grant, California,
in December, 1807, and commenced /arm
ing in the wonderfully productive Sacra
mento Valley. He has now a farm of
05,000 acres, *15,000 of which are in wheat,
and has 175 milesof fence. Of this year's
crop, Dr. Glenn says, although he has on
hand 350,000 Bucks, each holding HO
petiKds, he thinks they will not hold his
wheat. He has his own machine and
blacksmith ehops, boring, turning and
planing machines, buzz-saws, etc.
He manufactures his own wagons,
separators, headers, harrows, and nearly
all the machinery and implements used.
He has employed 60 men in seeding and
160 in harvest, 200 head of horses and
The General opinion ie that Col. Wil
son was about as badly demolished as
ever a speaker was. Mr. Hutchinson read
his record in Congress in a tolling manner.
In reply the Colonel said that Garfield,
had dodged thirty times in three months.
Mr. Hutchinson demanded the dates,
which Col. Wilson said ho would not bavs
time to road. The audience demanded it
and he gave a few of what he called the
moat important ones, but which were
really of a trivial nature.
The meeting closed with rousing cheore
for Garfield, Arthur and Hutchinson and
weaker ones for Hancock aud Wilson.

A telegram received last evening by a
member of the Republican Stale Execu

intelligence tlmt Senator James G. Blaine
will speak in this city on Tuesday, Sep

bring the people in crowds, not only from

Col. Wilson opened in a speech of an

Wilson closing in fifteen minutes by
special request of all concerned. There
was very little enthusiasm visible.

Boston, September 21.? The latest
specials from Maine leave little doubt that
General I'laisted has been elected Gover
nor by a small plurality. The Secretary
of the Republican State Committee is
careful, and be telegraphs that the returns
upon which the vote for Governor is de
termined are canvaesed by the Legisla
ture. when it assembles on the first Wed
nesday in January. The vote is so ex*
ceedingly close that the matter cannot bo
fully determined until that time.
Returns from town clerks at the Secre
tary of State's office from all but thirteen
small towns and plantations give Davis
41)1 plurality, counting all irregular re
turns, such as Hiram M. Plaisted, Malres
Plaisted, etc., for Harris M. Plaisted. Of
these thirteen towns, newspapers have re
turns from nine, which gave a plurality of
513 Hgainut Davis. The other four planta
tions from which uo returns of any kind
have been received gave last year 45 plu
rality against Davis. This indicates a prob
able plurality for Plaisted ol 01).
This estimate is based on the theory that
the clerk's returns and also newspaper re
turns are correct, and that the four small
plantations will vote as they did last year,
and shows a total vote of 147,303 agaius'
138,612 last year. The Constitutional
amendments are adopted; that providing
for the election of a Governor by a plu
rality vote by 78,872 for and 38,153 agaiiiBt;

18,184 against.
Senator Blaine is in the city, having, re
turned from his Sunday's rest in New
Hampshire. He is not in possession of
any later information about Maine than
has been given to the world, and still ad
heres to the opinion expressed by him
yesterday, that the returns indicate a very
doubtful coutest, and one that perhaps
only the official count can decide.
Mr. Blaine refuses to be interviewed,
but there is no doubt from information re
ceived that he looks for serious complica
tions hereafter. It is charged that the
Fusionists have a grand aud mysterious
plot in hand which, if successful, will re
jSult in changing the recorded votes in
numerous towus and assuring Ptnisted's
It is pleasaut to learn that Mr. Blaine
has no sympathy with the people who
would like to iuvoke the aid of the Su
preme Court to overturn the unfortunate
Constitutional Amendment, which, by
changing the requirement of a majority
to a plurality, has made Plaisted'a elec
tion possible*. It is remembered, how

not favor that amendment last winter,

Miamimburo, 0., September 21.?The
killing of Lee Brumbaugh in Dayton cre
ated intense excitement. Postal Agent
Ware, who did the killing, was a particular
friend of Brumhaugh's, and Mrs. Ware
and children were here visiting Mr.
Brumbaugh's family last week, and had
returned home last Saturday. Mr. Brum
baugh was a promiuent attorney of this
place and was about thirty-three years of
age. No suspicion of any uudue intimacy
between Brumbaugh and Mrs. Ware
seemed to have existed either in tho
minds of Mrs. Brumbaugh or Mr. Ware,
or at least the secret was kept locked up
in thoir hearts until the announcement
brought sorrow, shame and deep ailliction
to both households.
A special dispatch to the Gazette from
Miamiaburg says:
Tho news of the killing of Lee Brum
baugh,the well known, youngand popular
lawyer of (his place, at the hauds of Goo.
Ware, of Dayton, was startling, and pro
duced a decided sensation among all
classes. It was thought at iirst that poli
tics had to do with his sudden taking off,
nml there were many expressions of re
gret over the sad affair, and of the warm
est sympathy for Brumbaugh's wife and
two children. When, however, the facts
became known, the excitement ceased to
a great extent, and while the ter
rible tragedy ia greatly deplored,
there are a great many ready to
sav that Ware was perfectly justifiable in
doing what he did. For several reasons,
however, the case is a peculiarly sad one,
Brumbaugh, who was considered a sharp,
shrewi lawyer, had succeeded in building
up a good practice, so that, while he was
not growing rich very fast, he was making
some money, had a nice little home in the
town, and a small farm a short distance in
the countrv, ana, bo far as the world
goes, was getting on nicely. His wife is a
most exceilent woman, and their home is
giaccd by two handsome, bright children,
who are now left fatherless, and to add to
the sorrow of the widowed wife she is now
in a delicate conditiou and will soon
he cnntined. The two families have heeu
on the most intimate terms for a long time,
frequently visiting back and forth, and it
was only last week that Mrs. Ware visited
Brumbaugh's family here, when the two
families rode out in "the country and spent
the day together at the house of mutual
friends. No suspicion of any undue inti
macy butween Brumbaugh and Mrs. Ware
eeemed to have existed either in the
tuiudsof Mrs. Brumbaugh or Mr. Ware;
at least, if they did, the secret was
kept locked up in their own hearts
until the denouement to-day brought
sorrow, shame and deep affliction
to both households. A large crowd
went to the depot of the 0. II. A D. road,
at 0 o'clock to-night expecting the retnaius
to arrive, and despite the circumstances
surrounding the deuth of Lee Brumbaugh,
the fact of his popularity with a great
many people here is abundantly witnessed
in the expressions which are heard on
every side. It is a very sad affair and
may prove the death of his aged mother,
who doted upon her son, and of his wife,
who thought she had the most devoted of
Tho remains will reach here at 8 o'clock

thing about the suspiciousness of such

Admiral Seymour's original instructions

Paris, September 21.?M. Ferry's at
tempt to form a cabinet has led him into a
hard aud thorny road, llis difficulties
seem to increase rather than otherwise.
M. Noailles, who lias been tendered the
Foreign Office, is reluctannt to accept, and
there are as yet no further positive de
velopments. The Republican journals ad
vocate a general election and convocation
of the Chambers. The opinion gains
ground that the country doee not want an
aggressive policy, and that the new cab
inet may Hud itself standing on the very
ground on which M. Da Freycinct Jwas
compelled to resign.
The chief subject of discussion in the
German papers is the ministerial crisis in
The National Zeitung (Liberal) says: In
no case will the crisis be interpreted as a
peaceful symptom. The policy of revenge,
alluded to in Gambetta's speech at Cher
bourg, seems to be again in the fore
~ The JReiclibolc (Conservative) pays: Iu
summoning this ministry, President Gervy
is digging his own grave. Gambetta will,
before long, have filled all the immaterial
and diplomatic posts with bin creatures.
He will then replace Grevy. Gambetta'a
name ngnifies war to the. knife againat the
church and revenge against Germany.
The Tagblal (Liberal) say a: Germany
knows too well that men like Waddingtou
and I)e Freycinet, with their independence
of character, constituted in their quality
of Miuistera of Foreign A Hairs a more
valuable pledge of good neighborhood
with us and peace in Europe than the
new men, who are really only the mario
nettes of Gambetta, the apostle of revenge
against Germany. The Ultramontane ques
tion in the crisis was really whether the
policy of moderation observed in domestic
and foreign affairs shall be replaced by u
policy of force.
Pakis, September 21.?The situation at

in possession of Dulcigno. There is but
oue opinion outside of oflicial circles
about this strange and foolish demonstra
tion business. Events and delay have put
the Powers on the loosing side. Thus far
they must either maintain the concert,
and attack, which is highly improbable, or
withdraw and leave the Montenegrins to
capture the prize if they can. As the af
fair now stands the obstinate Sultau,
backed by the majority of the Albanians,
constitutes one side and the powers disa
greeing and hesitating make up the other.

Queen, having labored upon it unceasing
ly for over two years, in consideration
of his faithful services the Mounmental

Columbus, September 21.?A special dis
patch from Corning this morning says:
One of the militia officers to-day found a
suspicious character in camp who, upon
being pressed for particulars, said in the
battle of Sunday one miner was killed out
right and eight wounded, one of whom
will die. The man who was killed was
buried on the way home by his associates.
It is said the miners expect arms from
some quarter and intend making a gen
eral attack on the troops as soon as the
arms arrive, and that they will commence
operations by burning the buildings. The
colored minora all went to work to-day.
No trouble has occurred at Corning to
day. To-day a party of miners came to
mine number three and asked per
mission to search the woods for a dead
man, whom they alleged had been killed
during the charge of Sunday. Permis
sion being given they soon discovered
the body of Thos. AlcMahon, of Nelsou
ville, who had been shot through the ab
domen, and the miner wounded on Sun
day is fatally injured. The eight other
wounded men will all recover.
Gov. Foster declines to take part in the
campaign at present, believing his place is
here while matters are so uncertain in the
mining region.

During the current week the great Pres
byterian Council will sit in Philadelphia
with a view to unite inore closely the dif
ferent branches of the Church of Calvin
and Knox that are scattered throughout
the world. Three years ago the first gatli
eringof tho kind took place in Edinburgh,
Scotland, and the result was so beautiful
and impressive the Council determined to
renew itself iu Philadelphia in 18S0. In
deed, the notion of an Ecumenical Coun
cil of Presbyterians originated between
Philadelphia, Princeton, N. J., and Now
York. It was enthusiastically embraced
by the late Dr. William Adams, of this
city; Dr. McCosh,of Princeton; Dr. Board
man and Mr. Geo. II. Stuart, of Philadel
phia, and other prominent ministers and
laymen of the church. Drs. McCosh and
Adams and Mr. Stuart, as a committee,
visited Europe previous to the season of
the former Council, aud with others per
formed a large share of correspondence 011
the subject. They found that tho form
of faith organized as Freabyterianfsm, with
its varying qualifying adjectives, such as
associate, reformed, united, etc., has forty
two branches throughout tho world, and
that some of those branches maintained a
separate existence on merely technical
or frivolous grounds, such as the singing
of hymns instead of inspired psalms
iii worship, or the uso of an nrgau to
accompany the human voice, or of the
receiving of calories from the State by the
clergy in some countries of Europe. Sink
ing these petty differences in the higher
good that may be accomplighed by united
efforts iu benevolent, reformatory, educa
tional and other Christian work, theso
councils seek to bring the separated parts
of the one great whole together, thai their
fitness to work smoothly ami haimoni
ously with enc!* other may be tested and
approved. The first Council, iu IS77, con
sisted of two hundred and fifty delegates,
representing Proabyteriauism iu every part
of the world.
The Programme Committee, which has
had a year or moro to consider and select
its work and workmen, has chosen thirty
topics?ten theological, ten practical, re
lating to human life aud conduct, and ten
ecclesiastical. With such a large number
of papers to be read and discu&ed within
ten days - September 23 to October 3-it is
certain that all of them cannot receive the
time and consideration which their im
portance demand. Tho Council will prob
ably be divided into sections for (he better
consideration of those papers, aud the en
tire proceeding will proh.ihly be gathered
into a volume at tho close of the Council's
sittings. Tho list of theological topics
to bo presented to and be discufised
by tho Council includes papers
on the "Inspiration, Authenticity
and Interpretation of Scripture," "The
Vicarious Sacrifice of Christ," "Future
Retribution," "Modern Theological
Thought," "Theology of tho Reformed
Church," "Religiou* Science and Philoso
phy," "Modern Fidelity." In Eeclesi

Elders," "Creeds and Coufessione," "Ili

"Presbyterian Catholicity," "Aomission

Among practical subjects are: "Religion
