was SU.000,000; in 1871 it was $3ft,0Jl,7at,Bl,

Owing to the rapid increase of the debt, an

Croquet has charms. Last Wednesday
we saw a Merchantl a Lawyer!! a

trifles as darkness or rain, continued the
game with lamps and umbrellas.
Many of our lnercbauts and business

hotels and stores, may be seen miniature

conclusive evidence of the business enter

The subject of a boat club, suggested by
the Journal a week or two since, has been
taken up by the young men here and there
is at least a possibility that mn mi J.hava
some aquatic organization before the close
of the season. A meeting was held at the
marble rooms of W. II. Dora n, and about a
dozen being present, it was decided to obr
tain information in regard to the cost of
boats and outfits. Pending the receipt ot
this information nothing more1 has been
done, but we are assured that, unless the
expense shall prove something exhorbi-
tant a clubvlll soon be; organized.
Complaints have been frequently made
of late in regard to an establishment im
mediately in the rear of Hemmingway's
saloon. Kept by a negro, it is frequented
not only by members of his own race but
but by a certain number of white nien(.f)
who seem to afliliete ' most charmingly
with their colored breathren and, all to
gether, the ; night is passed in gambling,
drinking and riotous debauchery. As it
now is, the place is not only a disgrace
but a public nuisance and the authorities
ought to see to it that it is broken up.
We have no doubt but that the organiza
tion known as the Grant Cadet Club will
have a very large influence over the re
sults of the- approaching presidential
election, and as a school tor future legis
lators its facilities are unsurpassed. - But
after all, we cannot quite see the necessity
of pounding away on big drums and little
drums during all sorts of times and upon
all sorts of pretexts. To keep it up for,
ay, twenty-two or twenty-three hours out
of the twenty-four, would not be so very
objectionable; but such incessant pound
ing as we have enjoyed for several days
past, is just the least bit annoying.

Housekeepers who desire to always
secure light, delicate and deliciously crisp
cookery, should remember that Messrs.
Dantzer Bros., of this place have recently
commenced tha manufacture of an article,
the "Sea-Foam Baking Powders" which
will always produce these most desirable
results. The manufacturers claim for it
various advantages over other kinds now
in market, and those who have used it
declare it to excel in purity, economy of
use, and effectiveness while another most
desirable quality, is, that it will keep any'-
length of time in any climate if kept dry.
It is manufactured only by Dantzer Broth
Apropot of street sprinkling. The old-
fashioned box has been again brought into
requisition In place of the hogshead used
for the past two seasons. ..For thur change
there are two reasons in the first place it
don't hold so much, and in the second
place having much less pressure tbe wa
ter don't run out so .fast. The first fact
makes it easier to draw and the second
renders a fewer number of journeys to the
river necessary in tbe course of the day.
The remaining fact that the street cannot
be so satisfactory sprinkled is of course
not to be thought of. Then again, as a

About a week since, Mr. L. Farris re

Union Fence Co.'d works, which he has

cane, as a testimonial of their apprecia

any thing or the kind, Mr. Farris uas in
vited into the reception room of the Cowles
House, where about twenty-five or thirty
men were gathered, and Mr. Adams, one
of tbe proprietors of the works, presented
to him the testimonial on behalf of the
men who had so long been under his con

remarks, and shortly afterwards the com

' Die,
In Painesville, on Saturday, July 97, at the
residence of her father, ot consumption, Susau
M. Cook, seat. 39.
The deceased has been an invalid for
something over a year, but, although dur
ing a great portion of that time her phys
ical suneryigs have been most severe, yet,
the . fortitude with which she has 'borne
pain and confinement, has been such as
is only exhibited by those whose trust is
in the anchor ol a Christian's faith. .
A Kind daughter anu a linn laitutui
, friend, the deceased was one who not only
taught those who knew her to love her, but
whose-manjMgood qualities or heart and
head endeared her to all with whom she
came in contact.
The funeral services were held on Mon
day last, from the house, and were con
ducted by Rev. S. B. Webster. The de
ceased leaves to mourn her loss, a father,
mother and one brother, who is now a res
ident of Geneseo, Illinois.
A Card.
We have received a letter from Charles
. Gray of whose exploits in going off with
money belonging to a partner, we gave an
account some lew weeks since. We have
not the space to give the letter in full, and
if we had, can see but little use in doing

everything that was charged against him,
claims first that he was particial justi
fied in his course by unfair treatment to
wards himself on the part of Mr. Sperry,
hia partner, aud secondly that he was
about' to send the money -back when Mar

only took it in the first place to frighten
Mr. Sperry and to teaoh him a lesson in

their publicity.

Political .
So far as can be judged by the reports of
the meetings held in the townships
around, the campaign is fairly opened
with g0oXni;os,Bects for a, busy season. On
Friday evening of last week there was a
Greeley meeting held in Madison at which
Judge . Spaulding was tbe principal
speaker, and. on Saturday evening there
were two one in Mentor at which Messrs.
E. J. Swenney, B. M.Murray aud Jerome
Palmer were the speakers, and another in
Willoughby with Hon. R. F. Paine and
William Hiesley as expounders oi the
principles of tbe new party.
On the same evening Saturday last-
Grant and Wilson Club was organized in
Mentor with T. G. Hart as President; D,
E. Alvoi-d as Vice President; William II.
Johnson as Secretary and A. M. Parmle
as Treasurer. The meeting was addressed
by Kev. D. Wizner of that town and by J
W. Tyler and P. F, Young of this place.
Last Friday eveuing tbe Republicans
of Kirtland held a meeting to form
Grant and Wilson Club, but we have re
ceived no report of the proceedings. To
night Saturday there are three Repub
lican meetings to be held one in Mentor
which will be addressed by Hon. P. Bos
worth and E. P. Branch, Esq.; one in
Perry where a Grant and Wilson Club is
to be organized and one iu Willoughby.
Little Lake appears to be a very muchly
contested field and whatever may be the
ultimate results of the campaign, neither
side can deny but that their opponents
made a strong aud determined fight.
A Party Organ.
We had always believed that it would be
impossible o .produce, janything, mora
soothing to Ihe car than that 'new' and
sweetly plaintive melody "Captain
Jinks," melodiously ground out of a
wheezy organ, or anything more amusing
and-plcasiug than the usual monkey at
tachment, with its serio-comic face and its
Darwinian suggestiveness. But we were
mistaken. The inventive genius of the
nineteenth century has demonstrated that
two organs can make more melody than
one, and that two monkeys can collect
more pennies than one. Hence, one may
look for squads of organ grinders, hereaf
ter, and another proof is furnished of the
dangerous tendency of centralization.

Thern4urur Killed and tbe Fire
man Probably Fatally Injured.
On Thursday afternoon last a most ter
rible accident occurred on the line of the
Painesville and Youugstown Railroad,
about one mile north of Chardon, by
which one and possibly two lives were
Early in the day a party of excursion
ists, consisting of stockholders and others
had leen conveyed to Chardon aud left
there while the engine .returned with a
freight train to this end of tbe route. Hav
ing been detained by the transfer of the
freight and the making of some repairs
upon tbe tank, the engine started to re
turn at about half-past three in the after
noon, having between forty and fifty minu
tes in which to make the other end of the
line. For convenience in coupling when
they should reach the train at Chardon the
engine was backed up, and as is frequent
ly the case carried up several employees
and others those on I ward at this time
consisting of the conductor of the train,
the engineer, the fireman, one of the en
gineer's corps, two brakemen, and one
passenger. For the first eight or nine
miles they rau at a speed of perhaps fif
teen or sixteen miles an hour, but on ap
proaching within one or two miles of Char
don it was found that they had some ten or
fifteen minutes to spare, and the speed
was accordingly slackened until at the
time of the accident they were not run
ning to exceed six miles an honr. When
within about one mile of Chardon the tank
suddenly jumped the track and almost im
mediately the engine followed, and the
two were thrown over upon their sides,
striking nearly six feet from the track.
The eeuductor, Mr. Jefferis, was thrown
under the tank and must have been almost
instantly killed. The fireman fell under
the engine and was crushed into the earth,
breaking one of his legs aud suffering
other severe injuries. The others all
managed to clear themselves without ser
ious harm.
As soon as possible those present at
tempted to extricate the injured, but not
enough being there a messenger was dis
patched to Chardon for assistance, and in
a short time hundreds of people were pre
sent at the scene of the disaster. The
wounded man was carried to Chardon and
the remains of Mr. Jefferis were brought
As to the cause of the. accident nothing
whatever is known, and even conjecture
has no material upon which to found a
theory. Tbe track, at the point where the
tank jumped off was found to be perfect,
to all appearances, and although the rails
were torn up for nearly forty feet beyond,
yet at that particular point there was no
disturbance ot the bed er rails so far as
could be discovered. Neither can the ac
cident be attributed to any carelessness or
recklessness on the part of the engineer.
All those on board at the time of the acci
dent agree not only in saying that they
were running at a very low rate, but that
on the first intimation that the tank was
off the track he reversed the steam and re
mained at his post doing everything in his
power to avert the catastrophy, nor at
tempted to save himself, until the very
moment that it turned ovef . :
The fireman was a son of Mr. Green the
carpenter, who resides on Jackson street
in this place. His injuries are very se
vere, and it was at first thought that he
would not survive though Thursday night,
but hopes are now entertained of his re
covery. At the present writing Friday
morning we have just heard that he is
more comfortable.
The conductor, Alonzo P. Jefferis, was
a resident ot Westchester, Pennsylvania,
and bad been here for about a year; first
as a member of the engineer corps, and
since the commencement of running trains
to Chardon as having charge of the busi
ness of the road. The deceased, was in
every respect, a most estimaole young
man, and his prompt habits, bis fidelity to
business, and bis gentlemanly genial man
ners, his kindness of heart, and his per
fect uprightness had rendered him a favor
ite with all who knew him. His death has
saddened not alone his immediate com
panions and friends, but even those as well
who but knew him slightly. His remains
were brought here, directly to the house of
A. L. Tinker, Esq., and on Friday morn
ing after a short service conducted by the
Rev. Mr. Putnam, were taken charge of by
Mr. Evans, also a member of the engineer
corps, to be conveyed to his home at
Mr. Wick, the President of the road, Mr.
Steele, Mr. Tinker, and other officers were
promptly on hand and everything that
could possibly be done was attended to
for the sufferers.

efforts (o extend the road already built,
and to have others made," "wherever the
countrv is rich enoucli to sUDDort them.
With this preface as a mild excuse for
the existing enthusiasm, I will proceed to
the real subtect of this letter.
A week or two since, the Texas Central
Railroad reached tbe town of Dallas on its
way to Red River, where it is to connect
with the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Rail
road. The people of D. naturally relt jubi
lant over their being broueht into such
close relations with the outside world, and
beiug of a generous and hospitable dispo
sition, wished to make merry with the
friends who bad given them this great ad
vantage. Accordingly they sent uown tne
whole line of the road, invitations hv the
thousand, for all to attend a grand barbe
cue, to be held for two days, at tbe fair
grounds at Dallas.
In common with some few others, out
side tbe magic circle of the Railroad ring,
I was presented with a ticket for the festf
val, and which also gave tbe far greater
privilege of riding for 200 miles, through
some of the richest and most beautiful
farming country in the Union.
The morning of the 15th was ushered in
bright and clear, with a beautiful breeze
from tbe South, which tempered the hot
rays of the sun to a bearable degree. At
8 A. M. the train left Houston, bearing
awav people who, though tbey enjoyed
everything to tbe full at tbe start, uttered
many a prayer, or curse, before they re
turned to their homes.
For the first fifty miles the country.
though rich, is flat and uninteresting; but
after leaving Hempstead the scene became
one of almost perfect beauty. The land is
a gently rolling prairie, covered with lux
uriant grans, that gives food to thousands
of cattle and horses, of whose presence we
are constantly reminded, by the short,
sharp whistles from the engine, as they
attempt to cross the track ahead of us. At
short distances all through the prairie, are
placed small mots, or groves of timber,
and with such regularity that it seems as
if it must have been done by the band of
man, for his own convenience. At irregu
lar intervals along the road, are planted
large fields of cotton, which 1 am told
look unusually fine, which is true if
beauty is any criterion, though it is not to
be compared with a field when ready to
pick. Corn is also grown in great abundance-,
but the yield is not as heavy as at
the North twenty -five or thirty bushels
to the acre being counted a heavy crop.
As we go further north and west, the
land becomes higher, and the breeze cooler
and more bracing; which warns us that
we are Hearing the wheat region, which is
interesting from the fact that wheat is
here as easily grown, and yields as heavy
a crop, as in any ot the famous wheat see-

a flour which will stand a hot climate far
better than the best brands of St. Louis
or Rochester. At present there is not
enough raised to supply the demand in the
State, because the natives are more used
to growing cotton and sugar; but as im
migration becomes greater it will become
almost as great an article of export as
either of these staples. In the centre ot
the wheat region is situated the town, or
as it is called here, the city, of Corsicana,
some fifty miles south of Dallas. We ar
rived at C. at dark, and as most of us had
never seen the country lying between the
two towns, we determined to spend the
night there, and take the morning train
for D.. bv which maneuvre we honed to
gain a good night's rest, and an acquaint

who were to take the same conveyance tor
the barbecue. In our last expectation we
were not disappointed; in fact, on retiring
to our rooms, we were introduced to the
inhabitants of the hotel, who were so ex
ceedingly friendly, that they "went for
us" nearly all night; when becoming
wearied with their attentions in point of
fact, being nearly eaten up we adjourned
to the prairie, where we managed to snatch
an hour's sleep before sunrise.
At six o'clock we again louna ourselves
on the way, ariving aiong at iigntning
speed through a region that only needs a

part of the Union.
Every few miles stations have been es
tablished, at each ot which were people
waiting for the train. Moat of tbem had
never traveled in this manner before, and
manv now saw a railroad and train for the
first time. Could manner, accent and play
of feature, be given to the reader, their re
marks would be amusing in tne extreme;
but it would require the genius of W ard
and Twain to do them justice. As we
were passing over some trestle work, built
across a deep cannon, two girls seated in
frontof me looked out the window,but drew
back hurriedly, and one exclaimed: "1
swan to man, Mollle! but I never want to
be so high off the ground agin I" "Scairt,
ain't yerf" said Mollie, contemptuously.
JNo more scairt 'n von De," reioriea tne
other, "guess I'm as ready to die as any
body about this here train, else 1 wouldn't
have tried it."
At nine A. 31. we reached Dallas, and
were immediately escorted to carriages,
and driven to tbe hotel, where time was
given us to get rid of our accumulation of
dust and cinders, when tbe carriages came
into play again, and we were driven to tne
fair grounds, which are finely situated on
a high, rolling prairie about two miles
from town. A large stand had been erect
ed for the speakers, whose place tor the
time was occupied oy a nana, wno piayeu
a quantity of lively airs, which kept the
people amused, though they were not giv
en in first rate style. The speeches made,
though very interesting to those belonging
to the locality, will hardly go down to pos
terity as specimens of tbe eloquence of the
nineteenth century, so that we were all
rather relieved when two o'clock came and
we were at liberty to turn our attention
to the eatables, ot which there was a great
variety, though of course the principle
article was the different kinds of barbe
cued meats. After the rough edge was
taken off our appetites, we had a great
many toasts, which, if taken for the senti
ments of the people, prove them to be as

four or five thousand hungry folks takes a

down in the west wheu we started for

while the greater number were obliged to
camp in the streets.

The Arkansas river runs directly
through the middle of tbe country from
west to east. There arc also four large
streams tributary to tbe Arkansas, besides
a number of small creeks or branches,
while so great and abundant is the supply
of water at all seasons of the year, that
cattle and other slock are never subject to
a want of this important element. Tbe

Here at Pueblo, and at Denver, are our
most important and nearest markets,
while the military posts and railroad ter
mini create quite a demand, The mines
also furnish a market fir alimiteil amount
of produce. Considerable, slock is sold to
Denver dealers, but the large proportion
is either shipped on cars or driven to the
markets east . The average prices of stock
horses, mules, sheep, hogs, cuttle, and
milch cows are as follows: American
horses, $.100 nor span; native ponies $75
per head; mules, about the same as Ameri
can horses; work-caltlo, $0o per yoke:
stqok-oattle, $20 and $40 a hail; milk
cows, $40 to $100 a head, according V0
quality; sheep, $2.50 a head: hogs average
about $10 a head.
A mistaken idea seems to prevail at the
east in regardj to the cost of living in Col
orado. A family, be it large or small, can
live here in good style as independent and
cheaper by far. then in the crowded cities
of the East. Dry goods, groceries, domes
tic and Yankee notions, can be purchased
at a small advance over prices paid in tbje
States: Hour retails at five and six dol
lars per hundred weight; while beef sells
from seven to twelve cents per pound.
And right here I wish to remark that the
bread of Colorado is superior to that of
any otner country, ine wheat is always
white, plump, and thin-skinned, and
wholly free from every species of heredi
tary taint, as a consequence, the nouns
richer than other samples. Even the
bread of tbe professional baker can be
eaten and digested here. It is neither
tough nor tasteless, but white and fleecy,
and very satisfying.
Another product we iustlv feel nroud
of, is our Colorado beef. Here cattle are
never rattened by stall-feeding. All the
beef is exclusively from animals that
range at will, and grow tender and fat
with leeding on the scuculent and peren
nial grasses of the valleys and plains.
The meat is juicy and tender, and has a
flavor as delicate and appetizing as the
wild game of the mountains. In regard
to rents, there is no established scale ot
prices, but good comfortable abodes or
Drict dwelling nouses, wltb trom three to
six rooms, rent readily at from $18 to $25
per month. On the principal business
streets and Santa Fa avenue, store-rooms
are held at $100 and $100 per month. Real
estate is rising rapidly, and business
lots, which could have been purchased
five months ago for $203, are now held at
$1,000 and over. Residence lots, in the
suburbs, sell readily at $75 and $100.
Farm property, in the vicinitv of town, is
high, and a respectable ranche, embracing
three hundred acres, or such a matter,
cannot be bought for less than $20,000, ow
ing to the improved railroad prospects.
Good board can be obtained at all of our
leading hotels and boarding houses, at the
rate $0 and $8 a week for day board, and
from $10 to $15 with board aud room.
Wages are liberal, aud skilled or unskill
ed labor in fair demand. Common labor
ers receive from $35 to $40 per month and
board: carpenters $5 a day, and masons
$0. School teachers are paid $75 and $80 a
month; while the msst common and unas
suming domestic would never think of
pulling on her paste diamond rings, and
settling down to the vulgar toil of the
kitchen, for less than $12 or $15 per month.
Some girls are paid as high as $25. There
is a good demand here for strong, vigor
ous, respectable servant girls, and if there
is any public-spirited man at the east, who

class, and at the same time gain the ever,

How is This kok High If Wm. Haydn,
of the Globe Mills, has just received the
First Premium on the best barrel of White
Wheat Flour at the Northern Ohio Fair,
held at Cleveland, Ohio, 1871. Premium,
a Silver Medal. This is indeed a triumph
for the Globe Mills. Some 30 or 40 of the
best mills in the west competed for this
medal, but there was no use, the old Globe
was put through a courso of sprouts 111
the early part of the season, and has been
turning out flour that wins friends of those
who use it once. Mr. Haydn employs
the best millers to be found, and has in
troduced all tbe latest improvements,
consequently he has one of the beet mills
in the United States. We are glad to see
him reap a reward for the liberal expen
diture he has made on the Globe. -'Cast
thy bread upon the waters" if you want a
silver medal.

The condition of the money market is un
changed,, continuing easy at from 8 to 4 per
cent, with some loans made even as low as 2 per
cent. The condition of the banks in New York
has improved materially during the week, le-gal-tencer
increasing 800,000 dollars, and an in
crease of 3,000,000 in deposits. In money circles
it is anticipated that the dullness and ease in
the money market will soon be over and the
Banks are preparing for a stringent market.
United States Bonds have made another ad
vance, 1887's closing at last quotations at 116.
This is partly owing to an unusual demand for
our securities from Europe and the payment of
dividends iu August, which furnishes means for
further investment.
Gold is firm at 115 with au upward tendency.
There hare been large sales in the leading
speculative stocks, Erie leading off, with Pacific
Mail, Northwest, Wabash and St. Paul follow
ing close in the amount of sales. There seems
to be a fair chance for a quick rise in Wabash

We have to note but few changes in the gen
eral market since our last report. Flour is steady
at the late slight advance with a moderate
good demand. The grain market has been
marked by no especial activity, although prices
generally have been well sustained. But little
old Wheat has been offered, and Corn remains
steady at previous prices. Butter hag been mov
ing quietly during the week and although pric
es show little apparant tendency to change in
either direction, yei it has gone up 3 cents since
our last quotation, both to seller and buyer.
Cheese is in passable good request but receipts
are light and there is not much prospect of any
great change nntil a change takes place east.

The wool market at this point is very dull and
quiet. Buyers are making little effort to over
come the opposition to prices which farmers are
making, and but few lots are purchased. The
prices offered are somewhat indefinite when
quoted, as the range is scarcely sufficient to
cover all the ditfereut, grades. We give how
ever, 5055c as the range of prices offered, with
very light business doing. The reduction of 10
(8)30 per cent, in entries on foreign wool took ef
fect August 1st, an event which has been await
ed by speculators and manufaoturers, general -
ly,as most likely to exhibit the amount of for
eign wool In this country, which has been held
in bond and which will now be placed upon the
market, whereby prices will be reduced to some
thing more definite and settled. Up to this
time tbe eastern markets have been very dull,
and manufacturer have refused fco accept more
wooltbau barely sufficient to answer their im
mediate wants. Notwithstanding the fact that
reports from the London sales have been favor
able to higher prices, still the movement has
been downward in all parts of this country du
ring the past week. The most which can be
said is, that nothing at present is definite
enough to bring either buyers or sellers into t uo
market, and timi) alone can decide the vexed
question of uniform nnd fair value of wool.
Cleveland, O., August 3, 1S73
Throughout the week the markets have been
generally quietboth as to prices and ahausac
tioue, although lu most articles of produce there
has been a slight advance. Flour exhibits a
rise of SSc per barrel on all kinds and has doue
a fair business with the market firm. On Thurs
day wheat was quiet aud no business done at the
Board. Old wheat has beeu la very light supply
aud but few offers to sell have been made; new
seems to be held a little firmer but there are no
advance movements to note. Corn has been in
light demaud at prices which have been current
for the past ten days. Butter remains unchan
ged but sales has been made with sufficient
readiness to carry off receipts aud preserve tbe
market in an easy condition. Cheese still uani
festa a decided dullnvssllro.ugh absence of re
ceipts from the country aud the inability of buy
ers to advance buying prices, in view of the un
settled state of other markets.

The Dry Goods market this week has been
characterized by a fairly active demand in most
departments of trade, and at present a decided
ly better feeling prevails among all classes. In

fine brown sheetings c per yard on all grades.
