"IflHTHIBlP OHO JOUMAL
JAIES E. CHAIBEES, Editor. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBEK 28, 1872. EMTOBI1L MUAURAPHS. By the Glrard Cosmopolite we learn that Charles Stow has taken the stump for Greeley. At times Providence be stows unexpected favors. A weather beaten tiller of Geauga's soil declares his intentions, of voting for the Philoaopher,because he once lived in that town,near which are buried the par ents of the illustrious Liberal leads r. Might not this be truly called a revival of "dead issues?' Erie has s pickpocket mean enough to practice his art on an unoffending editor. Bender of the Cosmopolite was relieved of bis wallet during the State Fair, and that -although on no more of a "bender" than usual. To be sure the thief got nothing bat some passes and compli mentaries and consequently uncompli mentarily passed the book under a seat, but it shows how perfectly Erie-deema-blc some natures are. Those Grant and Wilson papers which are published on the "cheap-John, pa tent outside" plan must find it rather annoying to have their "weakly" supply furnished them with a flaming advertUe : mnt of the New York Tribune inserted 'in the most conspicuous place on the out side page. Perhaps,however,thoseof their . readers, who have read Arnold are able ' to derive some consolation from a re , membrance of the fate of the Tribune's . of old. . Aud now we again find it duly an - Bounced, that a large delegation of In dians are on their way to Washington, for the purpose of paying a visit to the Great Father." As a counterpart of thisitem we shall receive,withln a month after their return to their homes, har rowing accounts of massacres and bru tal outrage such as have so often been told in regard to the "noble Lo." The fact is, there has been quite, enough of such nonsense, and this toting; Indians to Washington with the idea of impress ing upon them any appreciation of civil ization or its resources,is simply a puer ile attempt to use moral suasion when nothing but the sternest of justice will have, the least effect, i And now with cooler days aud nights has come the cricket, with merry chirps that herald approaching fall and,through association, anticipate the announcement of the pleasant things which art, genius, and Industry are preparing for the amusement and instruction of their de- votees. The cricket at least, is honest, but it is doubtful if the cheerful old time pet of the cheerful clean swept hearth is aware upon what time it has fallen ,or has heard how oftenthe word of if made to the ear only to the broken to trie heart. Chateaux, de Jispunge are graceful, airy, charming, but lack the stern reality of solid structures, aud after all, the exceptionally great things, which one is always going to have,or do.are very apt to come down so as to be written by the twenty-six letters of the alphabet AKKl'MESIT va . ABl.SE As our readers are well aware, wc have taken frequent occasion of late to comment upon the growing license ac corded to, or taken by, the partizan journalist and, while expressing our be lie! in the ultimate success of that power which is ever exerted by an impartial as distinguished from a partizan or even an independent press, to do what we might towards promoting decency if not nnurtpsv imnnir nnliticai writers. I Tn-I ... aer tne snng oi ine party wnip or unaer i the spur of party zeal the wlelders of the mighty pen are all too apt to forget that a' mere exponent is but a slave and that freedom of thought is nothing un less coupled with freedom of expression. But not less alarming than this is the accompanying and marked tendency to substit ute abuse for argument and to act upon the presumption that a lie well told and backed np with scurrilous testi- mony is even better than the truth if so he the latter is awkwardly presented Few will really deny that the practice is a disgrace, but may it not be even worse than thatr May it not be accepted as in a great measure the explanation of the corruptions daily infesting our body politic ? Indeed it can be a matter of no surprise that the men who should have charge of our political affairs avoid them altogether. What man wedded to cul ture and accustomed to courtesy would not prefer the cloistered life of a student ami observer to the scurrilous strife of the modern American politician? De- .. .., .h.Sni, vm , i- r tot-i,, nffif. nr havinc anvthtnff to do with nol- .- rf P idea for fear of the ordeal to which thev would h auhieet hv the uniust crlti- h ii7i.n fn.irnallr. Tr. make political life filthy is to bar ciean men from Its walks. To make chicane and all manner of dishonesty a sine qua non to political preferment is to offer re wards to honest men for staying at home To incessantly lie about candidates is to keep gentlemen out of candidacy. De TocquevUle, the keen-eyed Frenchman, saw in the tendencies we have indicated the chief perils that menace Republican ism. They are, Indeed, the only consid erable dangers that threaten us now Falsehood, craft, and avarice cannot rear a State. While the price of liberty is eternal vigilance, It can only be bought and kept by high-minded men England lifts men of breadth and learn ing cleanly into place and power. In America it too often happens that the man gets office who is willing to wade to it. By tricks that he would scorn in business, and that he would as soon bis wife and daughter didn't know about, he paddles his way to official place. He crosses an uncertain and filthy stream to reach the prize of his low calling, if at all, dripping and soiled. -We may be mistaken, but we cannot -divest ourselves of the idea that a decent observance of the amenities ordinarily heeded and practiced among gentlemen, and a tolerably, near approach toward honesty by political partizana would be quite as graceful and becoming and far more effective than the present ordinary course. But in the beat of a Presidential campaign this opinion has never found universal favor in this free and enlight ened land, aud has seldom, if ever, been put i nto general practice. The ed itor of the Smithville liee considers it his sol emn duty to his country to call the ed t- or of the Smithville Eagle a soulless liar and a brainless 'villain, if what ehanees to be political gospel for the ed itor of the Eagle happens to be political heresy for the editor of the Bee, And Mr. Smith, who is a candidate for some thing, or Mr. Smith's friend, is moved by patriotism to declare that the great grandfather of Mr. Brown, who is also s candidate for the something, was no better than he should be, and that Mr. Brown's friend entertains heretical re ligious opinions, is unhappy in his do mestic relation, wears his stockings out at the heel, and. baa a. second cousin by marriage who was accused of stealing. Mr. Brown and his friends retort, of course ,after the tu quoque fashion, aud thus is the country preserved. That a change is imperatively needed is in fact a vital necessity, no thinking, reasoning man will deny. In speaking of this subject the Daily State Journal of Uarrisburg, Pa., had, recently, an ex-j ceedingly able editorial, the closing par agraph of which we cannot do better than to quote in full in this immediate connection : We are DennitUni: the exalted business of government to pass into the bands of scamps, lor toe reason mat we are iw nroue to blacken the character of all wlio assume to govern. Take the testimony of the Democratic press to-day, and if it is worthy of belief, we are governed by the greatest thieves, liars, and tyrants the world ever beheld. Take the Kepublican press ou the other hand, and with a few respectable exceptions, us testimony is tliat our opponents only nominate jail birds, loafers, and shoulder-hitters. Is this proper or politic? Is it decent, com porting with genuine State or national bride? We unhesitatingly say. it is not! This practice in our politics must be stop ped or we will co to pieces. There must be an end of this personal abuse of candi dates, this slandering and libeling of polit ical opponents, or we will go to the Styx as a nation, and become irredeemably dis graced before the people of the world. Let us nave done with personal abuse and de traction while we differ as broadly as we mav on all Dolitical issues. We speak now for the great body of the people of all parties, who have become disgusted and appalled with the fierceness of the person al abuse which attends every succeeding political contest. i Confined to no one party, but shared by all alike this evil would be still more alarming, a3indicative of a public so debased as to be qualified ouly to receive scurrility in place of candid truth, were it not that the more respectable papers of the land are thus beginning to rec ognize and protest against such prosti tution of a great aud noble power. And in this lies our safeguard, for in the Americrn press alone is lodged the pow er to banish blackguardism and intoler ance from American politics. But in reading a dozen political newspapers at random, from whatever latitude, one would be almost persuaded that we are leaning on a broken reed to depend on the political press for the hastening of the era of political honesty and courtesy. "One story's good till another is told," and "berate your opponent and you ex alt yourself,"are the maxims which, in four cases of five, seem to be tne editor ial inspiration. We are old fashioned enough to think on the contra', that 'honesty is the best policy," and are fully persuaded, in ourjownjmind that a man might be a respectable citizen, pos sibly a moral man, perhaps, even, an ex emplary Christian, who should differ with us as to the amount of duty that should be imposed ou pis iron. And if we believed that the Hon. Mr. Ferguson would make an honest and capable of ficer, we might be persuaded to vote for him without deeming- it of national im portance that his father was a tallow chandler, and that he himself was once jilted by Sarah Jane Pettingill. We be lieve, too that toleration is most incum bent upon political men, inasmuch as politics are not an exact science, and no man is likely to be so completely right that he may not be a little wrong. When the happy day comes that a partisan press aud partisan speakers draw the dividing line between what is personal abuse and what is political logic, and discriminate between truth and false hood in favor of the former "When the Chnrch is social worth. When the State-bouse is the hearth, Then the uerfect State is come. The Republican at borne." Oar Exchanges. You can aret the following pieces of new Music by sending 30 cents to J. L Peters, 59!)

The opening scene is laid on the Bhine frontier dur- ing the late Franco-German War The story turns upon the assumption by one woman of the name and position of an otherthe death of the latter occurring under such circumstances as to render this feasible. The heroine who takes this bold step was formally a Magdalen of Londou, whose past character, despite her noblest exertion, has persistently followed her, and pr evented her from regaining that social position which she now see ks to retrieve by deception. That the career growing out ot such an as sumption will he one of thrilling in terest no one need De told who has read Wilkie Coll'n's former tales. The five editorial Departments are well filled, and the Drawer comes to us this month with the added charm of illustrations. Scribner's Monthly for October is a re markable number for tho variety of its articles and the profuseness of Its illus trations.

Mrs. Charity Motiatil is employed as teacher at this Agency, and reports considerable progress among the Xavajoes under her charge. In a visit I made there to-day, she gave me many interesting particulars of Xavajoc the ology, etc. Like most savage races, their religion is principally superstition. ChinO.iiij. the devil, is a . more important personage in all their daily affairs than iVkailluhay, the god. Like the Mormons, Shakers, and other white schismatics. they attribute everything they don't like in other people to the personal agen cy of the devil ; and about the only value of their god is to protect them from the devil- They have a tradition of a flood, but think that was caused by the devil damming the rivers. Their moral code is extremely vague; whatever Is good for the tribe or band is in general right ; whatever is not pro bono publico is wrong. Cowards, after death, will become co yotes; while braves will continue men in a better country. Women will change to fish for a while, and afterwards to something else. But they don't trouble themselves much about the next world If they had plenty in this, they would consider themselves in luck. But just now they are almost in a starving condi tion. Their crops were a complete fail urc last year, and nearly so the preced ing vear; and Congress has made no provision for them. They have horses and sheen enough to last them a month or so ; after that "steal or starve" will be the onlv alternative. June YSth. isews ot a ternoie trageuy has just reached us, and thrown the com- ....... I . 3n.n a etn-A aC nnnDamlllnn I munitv into a state of consternation We were seated at breakfast this morn ing when one of the San Juan party ar rived, exhausted with tatigne, ana an nounced "Miller is dead killed by the Utes." The announcement seemed to sturefv everv one. The Utes had lately had some trouble with the troops atTierra Amarilla in Aew Mexico, but It was soon settled, and no one dreamed of their in vading the JCavajoe reservation to at tack tiie whites. J lie party, consisting of Agent Miller, B. SI. Thomas, John Avers, and. the interpreter, Jesus Alviso, left there 011 the 4th of June to inspect the San Juan valley, and select a better Dlace for the Agency. They were thor oughly successlul in Uncling a valley ca- seph Fierheller, Charles Hardison, and It. E. Johnson started to prospeet on the San Juan, and camped in a cotton-wood thicket, a few miles from Miller's camp. On the morning of the 11th, just after tlaylight,Miller's company were awaken ed bv the reuortof a gun and whistling of an arrow ; they sprang to their feet, and saw two Utes riding oft with their horses. The one who had hred the gun was seen mounting. Miller lay wrap iiorl in liia blanket. Avers shouted to IJL" thM his blanket, and saw that the shot had truck in the top of his head aud passed behind his right eve. ilia leot were crossed and his hands lay exactly as when he went to sleep ; bis eyes were losed. and his lins slightly parted into a faint smile, as if from a pleasant dream ; all showed beyond a deubt that he had nassed from sleeD to death without a struggle or a sigh. Thus died James it. jsiuier, a vnris tian. a brave man, and good official. He was a native of Huntington county, enn.: served three years and four months as a Lieutenant in Company H, 55th Pa. Vols., and was appoiuted to this agencv from Jnewtou county, .Mis souri, in December, 1870. No one im agined that there was the slightest dan ger of a Ute outbreak, and particularly on this reservation, as the Utes are at Deace. and white men have been con stantly traversing their country. If they are not called to account at their Agency, and the murderers given up and pun ished the worst of consequences will re sult. TheAavaioes lament the occur rence, but it is needless to point out how dangerous will be the lesson, that a ma raudingband of a "friendly trioe" may invade another's reserve, and commit such a murder without punishment, Mr. Millers wife aud intant son are at this post. I need not speak of her anguish on tins occasion June ith. The rest of the San Juan Dartv came in to-day. completely worn out, having walked a hundred miles in a little over tnree aays. ne oniy nurse left them by the Utes was ridden ahead bv the special messenger. The party had sought tne miners- camp, men re turned and buried Mr. Miller. The miners came.-in this afternoon, fearing that the Utes contemplated an attack in force on this reservation. Their prospecting was quite a success, lhey found surface diggings yielding half a cent to the nan, and others which re turned ten dollars a day to the man Thev commenced sinking on the bank, and had reached a depth of five feet one-third or the distance, tney juugea, to the bed-rock when the mnrder oc curred, and thev left. The same com pany, with several more, enough to sus tain themselves, win return mere in a few days. The specimens oi goia brought here were of rather nne tlust; and an examination of the sand with a glass, showed that many of the liner Darticles were lost in washing. Quick silver would increase the product at least flftv ter cent. The San Juan is higher than usual this Spring at least fifteen feet deep in places. Both parties agree that it now has two-thirds of the I m r 1 . - Pa fi ft ii i Ui Kut nr. tins volume of the Rio Grande, but at this time is running down very rapidly. From the 1st of July till February the lowest bars could be worked ; then the rise begins and increases till May. In the fertile valley the Asency party found ruins of acecquias, and inauy traces ol former extensive settlements Next Thursday I shall leave this post with Navaioe euides. and visit the Can on de Uhilley, containing tne Aztec-1 r; join a Navajoe party going thence to the Colorado.

"VASKToif, Dakota Territory,) August 13, 1872 .f Thinking you might be willing to al low a little space in your columns for the purpose of giving information to your readers concerning this portion of the Northwest, I shall take the liberty to write to you from time to time. The Territory of Dakota to-day offers excel lent Government lands free to "home steaders," and also open for pre-emption but not open for sale to speculators. These lands are mostly gentle rolling prairie lauds, very fertile, and well adapted to cultivation,being well watered and generally convenient to timber. The Missouri River forms the southern boundary of the Territory, along which there are bodies of hoavy timber, suita ble for sawing into lumber and also for supplying fuel. These tracts of timber are divided into lots of a few acres each, and sold to settlers on the adjoining prairie lands at prices ranging from f lu to 30 per acre Cominir down from the North and emptying into the Missouri, are the Big teioux, vermllliou auu uaKOia wans are so injured as to be totally un rivers. each flowinir through rich bot- fit for use. A portion of the back wall torn lands, skirted occasionally with tracts of timber, and furnishing every few miles excellent water-power or sites for mills and manufactories. Many of these waterfalls are improved, but nianv more are undeveloped for want of capital. By referring to the maps of the Western States and Territories, ua- kota will be found to occupy a large tractof country, quite regular in shape. being nearly square, extending through six degrees or latitude north r.nd south and about the same degree. of longitude I ea?t and west, aud embracing territory enough for four good sized state?. At present the settled portion of the Terri tory is in the south aud east, bordering on the states of Jliiinesotu, Iowa, ami Nebraska, which portions of the Terri tory are easily accessible by any of the railroads traversing the btates eastot l Da kota, and which will shortly be extemlcd into and across the Territory, affording facilities for travel aud commerce that will raniciv develop the country. Al ready aeveral of these great "through liues" ot railroad have reached our eastern and southern border, and with the opening of the spring of 1873, will be built far into Dakota, and eventually push to the miijiug uistricts ot Montana on the west. the UaKota .-onilierii Railroad is now nearly completed from Sioux City, lovra, to Yankton, Dakota Territory, "and will be running through trains hy uecemuer i, lt-iJ. Ibis road runs through a section oi the country unsurpassed in the fertility of its soil, and its adaptation to agricul tural purposes. lsitors from all sec tions of the United States have conceded that the crops in this section are equal to any portion of the West. The North ern portion of Dakota is traversed by the line or the .Northern f acinc Kaiiroau, which is being rapidly extended west ward and will probably reach the Mis souri river in the fall of 1S72. It is hoped that the northern portion of Dako ta will De orgamzea into a new territory at the next session of Congress. It is now rapidly settling np with a hardy and industrious class of people aud with the opening up of the northern 1'acihc, the country will develop and improve rapidly.

G-DEISTEK.Xj NEWS &0-. &G-, ScO- A fire broke out in the Northern Ohio Lunatic Asylum at Newburgh four miles from Cleveland, about one o'clock Monday afternoon and in hve hours the entire building was in rums. Ihe sight ot the tire from the village and surrouning country quickly drew a large crowd of men, not anxious to see out eagar to worK, ana ttiey lent their assistance with a hearty will to the at tendantsin removing the patients. Luck ily the wards were some distance from the hre, and atter the hrst consterna tion had subsided every effort was made to remove the unfortunate ones to a place of safety. In thirty minutes after the alarm not a lunatic, as lar as can be ascertained, remained in the building, Ihe females were taken to the rear of the west wing, and the males were re moved to the east of the east,wing,in the garden. The attention was then turned to the saving ot the furniture and other moveables. The windows are barred and grated, which proved a great hin drance in the endeavors to move the fix tures. In some instances the bars were battered Ou, and articles thrown to the ground. A large amount of bed cloth ing was saved and all of that in the wings was removed, a portion ot the lurni- ture in the center of the building was removed, but the losses in personal effects of the officers will be quite severe, many or tnem losing almost everything. ur. J. w. iewis, the superintendent, who was absent from the institution in Mt. Gilead, lost about everything tie had in the building. In three-quarters ot an hour the names had spread all over the upper portion of the central building. At this time Mrs. Walker, a lady about forty years of age. who was employed as a seamstress in the institution, and had been connected with it for fourteen years, ran from the rear part of the building to the third floor under the fire. It is supposed that she was endeavoring to reach her room for the purpose of securing some articles there, when the fire closed in behind her and cut off her escape. Steamer No. eight appeared upon the grounds at aoout a quarter alter tnree, Jtwas driv en to the rear ot the building, to one oi the reservoirs, and at twenty-five min- iitoa oftoi fhroa n'nlAnlf an limit- . 1 1 1 .1 11 half fter the conflagration began, the I .. - - . ' nrst water was thrown on tne nre. The central portion of the asylum was erected by the State in the years 1854-5, and received its nrst patients in the lat ter year, ihe institution at that time was only about one-quarter of its pres ent dimensions, and capable of accom modating about one hundred patients, About six years after the completion of the central building:, two winss were placed on the east and west ends,increas- the capacity ot the institution to Sia. ree years ago the Legislature appro priated $150,000 for making still further additions, and last year two new wings were completed, increasing the capacity ol the institution to 020. A rear portion was also bunt last vear, containing kiteh ens, engine rooms, etc. Last winter the Legislature appropriated lo000 for mak ing repairs in the old wards and the older portions of the building had just been put in good condition, and repairs ou dinerent parts ot the building were being made. The central portion of the building was used as othces, parlors, rc- ceptiou rooms, officers rooms, etc., aud the west wing was divided into wards for the accommodation of the females and the east wing for the males. The building was four stories high, and built ol stone, having a front ot 5.i- feet The firemen mainly directed their efforts tQ the preservation of the two wings that were completed last vear They had been built fare-proof, with brick arches under the roof and iron joists interlaid with brick in floors. The roof was slate, and it was intended to have been laid on iron rafters, but the appropriation was found to be too small and the slate was placed upon wooaen raitcrs, which gave the lire chance to demolish it. ft crept under the slate, which protected it from the water, anu burned the wood-work, which gave way and let the 'roof down upon the arches. By six o'clock the roof had been burned off the whole building. With the exception of the roof, the wings arc in a good state of preservation, being damaged somewhat oy water, out they can easily be repair ed and fitted for use at 110 large cost. The remainder of the main buildiuor is a total ruin ; a large portion of the out nna laueii uown, anu otuer parts ot that which stands is cracked, and will havu to be torn down! and but a very small portion ot it will be 1ft to use in rebuild ing. The loss to the State has been estima ted by compctopt judges at $500,000, aiul It will take from $300,000 to 500.000 to place the Asylum In the condition' that it was before the fire. A mcetinir of the trustees, and such directors as can be got tngcther, will probably he held to take the situation under advisement. Noth ing can be none by them beyond laying the matter before the Governor, who will probably feel called uon to convene an extra session of the Legislature to make an appropriation for tli3 rebuild ing of the institution, as all the other insane asylums in the State are full to overflowing. There arcouly threeluna tic asylums in the State now, that can bo used. The one at. Dayton, the Long view, at. CiiK-iiiuatti anil one belonging to Toledo, which is being partially used by the State. There nre several cau-es given by those in the vicinity of the fire lVr its origin. Upon examining tho engineer, our reporter learned from him that about ten o'clock in the morning sonic six or seven bushels of shavings had been thrown into the furnace for the purpose of burning out the stuck, which had be come choked with soot. The wind was blowing strong from the south, and the ashes from the stack were carried toward the cupola, which contained eight win dows, all of which were open. It is sup posed that a spark was blown through one of the windows into tlie building, igniting the wood-work beneath the slate root. I1X1XOIS. George Lewis, who shot and killed En rich rlardcastle while the latter was ploughing in his field in Green county,. Illinois, on the hrst of August last, was brought to Jacksonville, Illinois, last evening, on the way to the Carroiton ul. He confessed his guilt and shows that the murder had been deliberately phiunediweeks before. It is feared fie will be lynched on his arrival in Green count-. A isioux City special says a vigilance committee has been formed in Dakota, to deal summarily with the horse thieves and desperados of that region.

A Sail Diego dispatch reported a light between Gen. Crook and the Indians at Dale Creek reservation. Anache chiefs were detected going on the war path and Gen. Crook, with a guard, attempted their arrest, t our or live hundred Jn uians hred on the guards killing one soldier. The fire was returned by a company of calvary, killing thirty Indi aus. Ihe remainder broke and lied to the mountains pursued by two cavalav companies Mayor Atwoou received a communica tion from D. J. Williamson, United states uonsul at CallaOj that small pox prevails in au epidemic form in many eaport towns between alperaso arid Panama. The character is more perni cious than ordinary small pox, much more destructive to lite. At one hos pital at Santiago, Chili, out of fifty -eight patients entered in one week, hfty-six liave died. The supervisors, by a vote of ten to two, passed an ordinance al lowing the people to vote ten million dollars donation to the ban r rancisco autl Colorado Railroad Company, also two and a half millions to the Central Pacific Company for constructing a bridge across the hay thirty miles south of San Franeisco at Ravenswood. While those ordinances were pending, the Su pervisors were served with a notice ot ipphcation for an Piniunction from one of the District Courts, ou complaint of citizens who chargeu that the Supervi sors had been bribed for three hundred thousand dollars to pass the ordinance disregarding their sworn charges. The supervisors proceeded to take nnai ac tion and a legal investigation will be made. XEW YOUK. The November interest to be paid by the Government amounts to nearly $18,- UUU.UUU, and fully nine-tenths of it be longs to Luropean holders ot our bonds. It is reported that a portion is short. At Long Branch, General Geant ex pressed himself to a reporter as pleased with the result ot the Alabama claims arbitration statement. The contest, in his opinion, was not for dollars and cents, but for the preservation of amity between the two countries with lull and firm maintenance of our national dig nity, These points have been achieved and our nation should be satisfied. Forrester, the alleged murderer of Benjamin Nathan, was discharged, the District Attorney advising discontinu ance ot the case, as he had not sufficient evidence to prove the guilt ot the pris oner. Forrester was sent to the Tombs to await a requisition from the Governor of Illinois, where he will be sent to serve thirteen years imprisonment. -ihe Jjoudon lelegraph ot the 'Jth says that tumult, discord and dissention, if not disorganization, have been the char acteristic features of the continued ses sion of the International Congress. Six of the foremost members, including the rresiuent, 31. JKanvier, have seceded from the conclave, in dispair of found ing that international political solidity of the working classes to which their efforts and most of the discussion have been directed. They were also adverse to the transfer of the General Council to America. One of the curious results of the meeting is the dispatch of a letter to three Emperors at .Berlin, m which the democratic conclave expresses the hope that the conference of sovereigns will have results favorable to the durable maintenance af peace and the pacific so lution of all social questions. Utah. . The report from Washington of a fight with the Indians, near Beaver, and the consequent interruption of Wheeler's Expedition, is without foundation. C nited States officers, just in from the South, say all is quiet, and there are no further fears of disturbance. No fight has taKen place. The Mormon papers are still excited on the disclosures in regard to the Mountain Meadow massacre. The News says: The animus, in charging the Mormon authorities with this crime, i3 despicable. Small pox is still prevailing in differ ent parts ot the Territory. Which ! C. S. GRANT AT PHILADELPHIA. Gentlemen and Merchants oe Phila delphia: You have heard much better speeches to-night than I could make if 1 were so inclined. I am very glad to see you and am pleased to hear that you nave been to hear such fine speeches, and how you have been engaged to night. H. GREELEY AT ERIE. Since I have but five minutes more let me improve them to this purpose. You see men all around me who say I snail De ueteated, hut I cannot De defeated. may not succeed as a candidate, but the effort I am making to bring this people into more trusting relations with each other cannot fail ; it must-succeed. This day men are on the stump all over the country trying to prove that Grant has been more magnanimous toward the Southern States than I have been. don't want to contradict that; I want the two parties running the race to see which can be the most magnanimous aud generous. Suppose I am beaten They cannot go back on the record have made any more than thi record which the party made at Baltimore. If 1 were beaten to-morrow you would find them coming in next winter with a bill of nearly universal amnesty. So then in a few years we will drar them up to it. L)o your duty, therefore, citizens of I'ciiusylvauia. Do whatever you think right and best. I believe that out of all this strife and contention, this bitterness and proscription, a divine l'rovnleuee is working out beneficent and glorious ends lor the future of our whole conn try.

A LIVE PAPER FOB LIVE PEOPLE, Published every Saturday at No. 114 Main St., Paiuesville, "Ohio, by W.C. CHAMBERS & SOX. Proprietor. o Terms $2.00 per year. THE Journal, with the number for July li, enters upon its Second Volume with the highest prospects for the future. Throughout the year just past it has endeavored tofnffll, and has,fidflled the promises contained in its original prospectus, and its aim to present an olegaut miscellany of pure and pleasant literature baa been so far carried out as was possible in view of the many obstacles necessarily incident to the nrst year or publication. As set forth on its title page it has been demo ted to Literature, Science, Agriculture and General Home and Foreign news and in the fu ture the aim of its editor and proprietor will be to maintain its present high reputation in these several departments. No pains or expense hayc ever been spared to make the J our nal the bent paper published in this section of the State, and for the jear just commencing no other or better promise could be asked than that furnished by its past record. New attractions are constantly being prepared for its readers and none will dispute the asser tion that its enterprise and energy have already won ior it a loremost place in the ranks of co temporaneous publications. By its influence the newspapers of this section have beon driven into exurtion never before made and while the pa pers here are now a pride to every citizen it ought not to bo forgotten that their marked Im provement has been made within the year last past or in other words since the establishment of the Journal. EIGHT SPECIAL, REASONS Which cannot fail to commend the Journal to every class of the reading public First. Because it is the largest paper ever published in this county, and because it fur nishes each week nearly tnree columns more read In or than all tne other pa. pers combined. - Second.
