Five men were working tin one stack the. pitcher threw the sheaves upon the stack, and then there were three men engaged in getting them to the stacker. The slack was onlv an ordinary round one, such as two men often build with us. Some ef your readers know that I have some knowledge of the uses of a pitch fork, and I could" hardly control my lesire to get on the load and show them how it might be done. I am sure five men were not doing more thau two-thirds as much as I have seen two do. I might have been dis appointed in the tool I would have to use if I had undertaken to teach the pitcher tome forks I have seen are about as elegant as two cows' horns fixed on a handle. By the way, i 11t ink the best solu ii that can be given of the fact that is often observed by Americans as well as Englishmen, that wc are lean er thau our English cousins is that we work hinder. 1 am more and more of this opinion. Englishmen will tell you the same. Out* of the complaints of tlie dissatisfied Englishmen who wen coining home in the ship I came over in was that they had to do too much in America. itn all the excitement that is made about shorter hours of labor, one would expect to find the English workman a lean, wrinkled, weary looking man with the marks of over work on face and limb. The truth is, h«» is quite a different fellow from that, plump as a parlridge. and rosy as a June morning. I candidly don't think they hurt themselves. Birmingham pleases me better than Manchester. Of course the impres ions of a traveler who remains onlv a week iu a place are liable to a great many errors. I don't give nyne as of any great value but iny impression is quite clear and strong that Bir mingham is a nicer town than Man chester. It is a little larger than Manchester alone, considerably less than Manchester and Sob'ord togeth- There are not as many fine store buildings as in Manchester, and no more public places of interest, but the strei is are wider and the whole own seems more cheerful nor are there as many places where one would want a policeman on each side if he had to be out at night. Birmingham is at least a city of fine suburbs. 1 have spent nearly two full days walk ing round in them. 1 think I must have walked altogether twenty miles. I have a prettv fair ''impression" the surroundings of the town. The plan of building houses partly or wholly detached from each -other is much more in vogue here than it was in Scotland and as most of the hous es out of the heart of the town are surrounded with trees it gives them a homelike air that a long row of con inuous houses can have. Indeed, when one gets out near the city limits the places become a succession -of country seats and a walk along them seems more like a walk through a park than through the streets of a city. A young Scotchman, whom 1 met on the boat, found fault with Chicago because it was scattered over so much ground I am sure he had not seen Birmingham. However I am not mentioning this to find fault with it 1 rather like it. 1 visited (.iillott's pen factory this morning. It is a large establishment, of course, and one likely to interest any one by the ingenuity and simplie tv of its machinery. It employs about 400 hands, mostlv girls, and turns out about 4.0(H) gross of pens in day. That would seem to be enough to do all the writing done in England, but I am writing with a pen not made there. I was pleased with the bright cheerful appearance both of the rooms and workers. I should think from appearance that Mr. Gil lott is not a bad master. One would osreely think pens would he made as TIPTON",. IOWA, SEPTEMBER 25, 1873. LETTERS FROM El'ROPE.

[Special correspondence of the Advertiser, Birmingham, ENG., i Sept. 3d, 18T3. WrHmd Char It?*:—You will fee from this tliut I am still moving drifting toward London, I left Man Chester Friday last, came as fi Lichfield and stopped off to see Licli field Cathedral, it is called, 1 am told, "the gem of English Cathe drals." I have not seen enough nth ers to be able to say whet tier it woiiliv of the name or not. hut it eer tainly is very fine. It is 45 feet long, with main aisle feet wide ami 60 feet high, and side aisles feet wide, making the entire width 6'2 feet. |t is 1 tiiIt in the "firm of a cross, and hits three spires—a large center spire and two at the two western corners. In side and but it is quite elaborately ornamented, but there is such an en tire harmony of parts and such an airy grace and elegance in all, that tiothing seems amiss. It is of the few buildings I have seen that gave me an entire feeling of satisfaction. Lichfield is a quaint old town, with little business but just such a place as one would like to lose himself iu for a month, if lie wished to do noth ing but rest. I was quite anxious to see something of this part of the country, so I walked about eight miles of the road to Birmingham. The country is very pleasant, but no finer naturally than the road from Tipton to Slanwood of course culti vation has done more for it. I think the chief characteristic of English scenery is its variety. There are no broad fields devoted entirely to grain The land is divided into sma IP areels, generally by live fences, and nearly all the fields arc dotted with troce. The climate, too, is moister and cool er than ours, so that the fields seem to have a more cheerful green than with us. It wants of the grandeur of Scotch Highland scenery, and much of the brightness that I suppose be longs to Italy and parts of France but there is a quiet homelike air about be loud ol. Sli'! for the I'mruier it will not compare with Iowa. I had been told that this was a good fanning section: bit the whole e glit miles 1 walked was almost a great gravel bed you cou'.d see the* little stones lying between the rows of tur nips almost as thick as we sow wheat. The finest country I have seen yet is the section around Edinburgh. 4ro- eerie*, Careen, Dried and Canned Fruit*, lee Cream, Lemonade, and nil klnta of good thlnpw. rapidly as they are. There are four teen distinct processes at least, and eight of these require each pen to lie handled singly but always doing one thing the girls learn to do that very rapidly. Wie machinery is quite sim pie, and 1 think it might be combine and the processes shortened indee one steam stamp is at work which perftjrins four of the ordinary opera tions at once. I am having a little experience of the uncertainty of English weathci I hare asked some persons tn giv me tn opinion of the weather, andliad them stare at me as if they were de ciding whether to take me to the asylum or not. A man is not expect ed even to guess whether it will rain in an hour, and to ask if he knows is preposterous. However, if there anything at stake it is always safer to say it will rain than it won't. Aj» ever, vours. .T. II. Uioby A Fearful Leap. The Uuttalo Commercial Advrrtitter, of Aug. 26th, details the exhibition of the rope-walker at the Kails, who first walked over the rope from the Cana dian to the American side, and tlieu, returning, leaped from the middlwof the rope into the river below. The length of tlie rope from hank to bank was over 1,400 feet, considerably over a quarter of a mile, and fully 500 feet longer than any heretofore used on such occasions. The detlection was almost ninety feet, making u very steep ascent and descent at the ends, a feat that created many doubts of the ntrepid walker'i ability to perform he task. At 5:V3 a start waB made for the utuping-ofl place. Tbe excitement was up to fever heat, and great were the fears of those who had predicted hat he dare not jump into the river. Said one, '(If he goes under the surface even, he is gone forever, for the under tow will surely drs^ him toward the vvhiiIpooiand another, "No matter how he descends, his momentum will force him many feet below the surface, nd the under current will deprive him of the power of swimming." But the Kiguor selected a spot winch was generally quiet on tlie surface, below which lie cared very Jittle, a-lie had no feats of the much talked of under tow. Arriving at the center of the rope in xactly six minutes, the Signor com menced preparations for ttie feature the occasion. Here he lowered his balance pole, aud wus about attacking small piece of rope to it by which to slide it down one of the guys to the main land, when it slipped from his grasp Htid went endwise into the river, coming to the surface some distance below the bridge. Uefore starting on the return trip the Siguor had provided biuiself with a rope, or bundle of straps, about ten feet in length. It consisted of Inch strips of pure rubber, laid together and fastened at each end. One end of this he fastened to the rope, and with the other s:id eastward as far as it would reach, and before any one thought be was ready, he made the leap to the river a distance of 110 feet. The rub ber being elastic, bis head was kept well up, aud he struck feet foremost, but not in a perpendicular |Msition. oming down on a curve, he struck the water in a partially horizontal nilioti, slid simultaneously commenced swimming toward the boat, which was in teadiness to pick him up. His head ari cly went beneath the surface of the water. He was immediately row ed ashore, where he was met by his ife, who was, of course, exceedingly gratified at his safe return from the greatest feat of the day. How Gen. Harrison appointed a Governor of Iowa. President Harrison had great re spect for the inetnbors of his cabinet, and generally acquiesced in their sug gestions without remonstrance. On one occasi in, iwever, lie asserted the authority of his oftlce with a degree of determination aud diguity that aston ished the executive council. Colonel Chamber*, of Kentucky, ail intimate personal friend, who hud served on the staff of (General Harrison in one ol his campaigns against the Indians, was under an engagement of marrisge with thi- widow of hi-* son. Chambers accompanied him to Washington, at his request, and the arr ingeui'iit was that he should have the appointment of Register of the Treasury, and after the marriage he was to reside at the White Hou*e, Mrs. Chambers to be the presiding lady of the executive mansion, ."•iiowasau accomplished, legant woman, greatly caressed iu Washington society. Tlie finished gentlemen by whom she was sur rounded at the seat government ontrasted so strikingly with her Ken lucky lover, who was a plain man, of brusque manners, that she finally de litied to fulfill the engagement. Gen eral Harrison wa» much concerned at this unfortunate contretemps, and perceiving that Chambers would be uncomfortably placed in Washington, ottered him any appointment else where that he might select. The un lucky suitor asked for the office of Governor of the Territory of Iowa. The place was assured liim as a matter of course. Meantime Mr. Webster had promised the offlce to bis friend (.Jen. Wilson, of New Hampshire. At cabinet meeting Mr. Webster in formed the President that it had been decided by the gentlemen of the cabi net that James Wilson should be Gov ernor of Iowa. "Ah! that is the de cision, then, Is it?" said Gen. Harri son. The gentlemen of the cabinet replied iu the affirmative. Without making any further remark, the old gentleman wrote a few words upon a piece of paper and handed it to Mr. 8KNATOB WRIGHT. His Beoord on the "Salary Grab bing" Business. In his speech at Osceola, on the 17th inst., G. G. Wright, U. S., Sena tor from Iowa, made his record on the "back pay steal"' A week or ten days after this I called upon the financial clerk of iht Senate, who is our disbursing officer, for some money. lie inquired if 1 would take my 'back pay.' I told him 'wo, that 1 should never touch that.' lie says 'all right, but I hav the amount coming to you figured out: it is some thirty-four or thirty-five hundred dollars, and if you will this rea ipt you can have it.' I said, no, never. I want #100 on mysala ry for March, and that is all.' This I got and left. At this time, alio* to say in passing, as much has been said about rivh ineu opjHwimj increase if salaries and poor men favoring theni, and not as magnifying mv own self-denial, that at this time, this 13 500 was equal to all the property I had, of every kind, aside from my homestead but I did not take it. I returned home, was sick for some time prior to leaving for Colorado, on the 2d ol June. Before leaving found that sttfi question was bein made as to the 'back-pav'—whether it would or would not be covered in to the treasury on the 30th of June? and similar questions. I wrote to the financial clerk, a most excellent and intelligent officer, telling him I pro posed to let it be covered in by act of law, without noise or parade on my part, for I wanted no cheap or clap rap notorieiy on the subject but that if it would not thus revert, or if 1 •uld do it without publicity, I would at once make the order. He answer assuring me that it would revert at the end of the year, and said that in order to pay it back it would have to go through a dozen or more hands, and 1 therefore determined to adhere to my original resolution. For you must bear in mind that there is a general statute which provides that II unexpended balances of appropri ations remaining at the close of each fiscal year shall be covered into the reHsury. Before this the balances were carried over from year to year, and the accounting officers were una ble to adjust, finally, their books and accounts. And now, my fellow citizens, you will see thus far, that 1 rtef, .spokr and worked against the back-pav— that 1 determined never to touch it— t'aat I coqferred with those actios and agreeing with me, anu we all de termined what to do—that 1 refused irhtii ojf'rrtd mr.

I took steps to be re assured that it would certainly go to the treasury at the close of the year. never have directly or indirectly ta en it. And it is for you and the people of the State to determine whether I have acted improperly in any sense in this connection whether my conduct has been 'infamous.' or whether 1 have so violated the spirit of the tith resolution of our State platform, or that my appointments should be withdrawn. I propose to add a little more. I returned from Colorado on the 10th of July. After this 1 again learned from the papers that a question was being made, whether this money would go into the Treasury, and involving a instruction of the general law for iverin^in unexpended balances. It was also announced that some of the Senators with whom I had conferred, as before stated, had drawn aud paid ill their 'back pay.' Not understati ng this, and desiring to be right if possible, I addressed a letter to my ood friend, and that best and purest of officers, General Spinner, asking what, if any rulings had been made, and stating again my view that the money would revert under the gene ral law. There was published in the press, within the last two weeks, a tter written by the General to an ithcr member on the same subject, in hieh he savs he cannot better answer in thau bv giving an extract from a tter written to another, and he then proceeds to copy word for word what lie had written to me. From this I arned that the first Comptroller and eeretary of the Treasury had ruled that this appropriation was an indrji- itf Webst- r, requesting him to read it aloud. Ttie Secretary of State looked little embarrassed, but there was no Iternative, and he read, in an audible nice, "William Henry Harrison, President of the United States." The General, rising to his feet, said, "And William Henry Harrison, President the United States, tells you, gentle men, that by —, John Chambers hall be Governor of Iowa." Of course that concluded the subject, and Cham tiers was appointed —From "Recollec tions of an Old Stager," in Harper'i Magemtnc. one, that balances remaining thereunder would not ertiser. very much clear er than some of the two-penny polit cians who have been howling about him will like to see. After rehears ing his constant opposition to the bill on the floor of the Senate, which is a matter of history and need not be re peated here, he referred as follows to his subsequent course in relation to the money made due him by the pas sage of the bill: be covered into the treasury but would remain for all time subject to tin-order of Sena rs or members. He adds that Sen ator Sherman, who drew the law for vcring unexpended balances into the treasury, construing it as I did, had determined to let his 'back-pay' •vert by operation of law}» but in Inference to the decisions of tin ac counting officers, he had ordered the amount coming to him paid into the rcasury. The very hour I got this letter I wrote to the treasurer and financial clerk of the Senate, to at once thus dispose of mine. But for this ruling I never should have chang ed my course, and I made the order, not because I feared should ever touch the money. but because it was eminent'}* proper that this money, in stead of remaining in the hands of the clerk, year after year, indefinitely, should be covered in, that he and all the officers might close and adjust their accounts. I only add that I have word from the clerk that my order has been implied with—the money is now and forever beyond my control—and hope those who have been troubled over my iafamous course, will rest easy."

Vet nearly two months have elamped and tiiey are all till at large. Tlie excitement bus quieted down, and tlie bold dt'cd aud actors are scarcely given a thought. The old saw, that "murder will out," has apparently fulled to verify tseif. To all appearances the most strenuous eflorts were made to capture the banditti, and there seems no oilier (inclusion than that they were mem bers of a regularly organized band, which reudercd them valuable assist ance, thus enabling them to escape. However, nothing certaiu is known, and we can do little better than class it with the Bender and tlie Nathan murder mystery, and wait for some persevering detective to unravel it all. Tlie rewards offered, it will lie remem bered, amouot to the iHrge sum of $8,5i)0, and this will be a powerful in centive to professionals to ferret out these desperadoes, although the peo ple and county ofileials may not have the time or inclination to continue the so-far fruitless search.

She had dropped and broken it, in bringing it back from tlie field to which she had taken her father's dinner, aud said she would bo beaten ou her return home having broken it. As she said this a sudden gleam of hope seemed to cheer her. She innocently looked up Sir William's face and said "But you can mend it, can't you?" Heex ilained that he could not mend the bowl, but the trouble lie could over come by the gift of a sixpence t:i buy another.

Ivdtaa Territory. OsAfig Agkxct. Aag. ttth, INK, Dear Advertiser:—I thought I would reply to an article in your sue of the 7th inst., reflecting what lightly upon the Presidents peace policy with the Indians. As such policy may work differently in Wyoming Territory, where the arti cle was written, than here, I will say nothing about the merits of that par ticular cs-e but I believe it has al-4 ways proved a failure in carrying out the rules of peace our Saviour has laid down for us, in attempting to govern the Indians by physical force, as the writer of that article says is the case in that \icinity. Wherever there is a military post the most de grading influences are brought to bear u|on the Indians and if the whole history of the case could be published, in nine cases out of ten the whites would prove to be the aggres sors. either in cheating the Indians or furnishing them whisky to excite •ir passions. I have been among the Osages near y four mouths, and in that time the ocal pajiers of the West have had war declared between these Indians and the whites once, and twice with other tribes, but the Superintendent and Peace Commissioners have set tled these difficulties without blood* lied or any expense to the govern ment, thereby saving many thousands of dollars which would have been ex pended had the military been called out. There are many whites who we always ready to enlarge upon any out* rapes committed by the Indians, and plenty of editors who are anxious to publish the news, so as to keep the public mind wrought up to a high pitch of excitement against the pesee policy of the government. It is only three years since the Osa ges were moved from Kansas into the Indian Ten iloiv and placed under the iresent Agent, I. T. Gibson, and they ivc always had the reputation of being the hardest tribe to control e*« pt the Kiowas and Comanches. A large majority of this tribe seem iilmg to abandon the war-path and the hunt and commence cultivating th e soil for a living. 1 am located 16 ilea from the Agency with a band of about live hundred Indians, who bad two ten-acre fields broken last year which bore good crops of corn this year. With three breaking teams under my charge, we were not able to break near all the land that was called for this season. The patches broken from one to five acres in size, for each family, as we can get help from the Indians to hold the plow. There iu all about seventy-five acres bro ken for this hand, and next Spring#e xpcct to break twice as much more. These Indians are anxious to build houses, and keep stock as fast as they can learn to take care of it. Respectfully, Mobks Vakwit, It is mentioned a* a somewhat Siftr golar coincidence that Gen.
