J1MES E. CHAMBERS, Editor. SATURDAY, - - OCTOBER 5, 1872. EDITORIAL PABAGBAPHS. Boston has vindicated in the recent cricket match its proverbial reputa tion for being rather more English than the English themselves; but, then, New England is rather a bad place for bats men, since, from the preponderance of its female population, one might expect to find a "maiden over," no matter how manv matches were made. The woman's rights movement must be making considerable headway in England if we are to believe the state ment of s London correspondent of the Weekly -SotmaWf who ays that oue of the leading lady advocates of woman's suffrage intends, at the next general election, to offer herself as a candidate for parliamentary honors in a popular constituency. The Japanese girl students in Wash' ington have been studying too hard, and one has been so persistant in her appli cation as to contract a serious disease of the eye, which threatens her with total blindness. Indeed the difficulty is so se rious that the Japanese Minister has in formed the unfortunate child that she will have to return to Japau.and another student be sent in her place. The name of the sufferer is Bio Yoshenias, and she is not only the eldest of the party, but particularly bright in intellect, and no ted for. her many amiable qualities When the final decision was made known to her that she must return to Japan she acquiesced without a word of complaint; but her companions were greatly dis tressed, and manifested their sorrow in the most touching manner. Tbk priestoood in some parts of Bava ria seem to have made quite a nice thing out of the recent comet scare, judging from the letters printed in the German papers from Burghausan, Eggcnfeidvn and other places. ; At Vilsbiburg aud Vilden, where the people are unusually credulous and superstitious, several dis honest vicars distributed little handbills just prior to the 12th of August, prom ising complete forgiveness of sins and freedom to all those who would, on the eve of the dreadful uiistastrophc, estab lish a tna-w for themselves and their lc scendants. Incredible as it may seem there were country people who paid as high as from 100 to 1,300 florins to be prayed for and to avert the effects of the fearful comet. The correspondent of the Lintz Tagepout, who gives this inform ation, announces the still more extraordi fact that the authorities did not consid rr it necessary to put a stop to this ini posture ' It would bo a bad thing if all the vine yards of Europe were to be. destroyed, although persons who are totally and professionally abstinent may at first sight be inclined to believe that it would b3 a very good thing. Byron was un reasonable enough to insiuuate that ev ery reasoning being must get drunk t hat is, that he must get from the realm of mere honest practice into that of thought and Imagination, when one may tumble down logical stairs and be brought before spiritual justices of the pence without harming himself a para- nomasia being a panacea for mental bruises and a paase-partoitt for all the phantom locks of argument. But whether such universal fact exists or not it is nevertheless moderately certain that if wine were destroyed people would drink worse things. Therefore there is no re'ason for the temperance lecturer to vaunt himself or be puffed up because, as is reported, the phyloxera vattatrtx lias been justifying its ominous name by devastating the vineyards of Schaffhau- son, Aargan,. Zurich and other Swiss Clinton and has even made Itsvay into Hungary, Spain, Alsace and Germany and spoiled the vines as the proverbial "little Foxes" used to do. In some respects the workmen of Ita ly seem to be endowed wiih a hard prac tical common sense, which is not only in strong contrast with their usual indo lent habits, but which might bebenefl cially accepted as a model for many of our own countrymen. As an illustra tion of this trait, the system of "strikes" seems to find but little favor among them, and when thev feel themselves aggrieved they lay their cases fairly be fore the authorities, who intercede with the employers, and hitherto they have always succeeded in acquiring their wishes, whether as to an increase of wages or a diminution in the hours of lalior. Some attempts have, however, been made to get up strikes in some of the larger cities, and a Roman cor re Kpou!unt of the Independence Bebje tells of a recent abortive one to induce the op- erativc masons of Boino to turn-out When the meeting began, one stalwart workman propounded the very pertinent question : " But who will pay me for tny idle time when I am out of work? " The trades-union funds," was the re ply. "How long will these funds main tain ine in Idleness?" "Five days, said one, ."and perhaps thirty days," said another. "And what after the five or thirty days have expired?" To this no body seemed to be able to give a reply, upon which a murmur of dissatisfaction went through the meeting, and the ques tioner was surrounded and applauded with cries of "He is right; we must think of our wives and children." The general exclamation was, "No strike,1 and the meeting thereupon separated the masons returning peacefully to their work. The number of terrible ocean disas ters and lake casualties which have. within a short time past, horrified the country, bring out with a painful vivid ness the fact that our best appointed in land and sea-going steamers are utterly unable to float one-half of their passen gers in case an accident requires the abandonment of the craft. Not long since a steamer reached New York with 1700 persons aboard and with nominal accommodations for 700. Granting that the capacity of boats was not overesti mated . 1.000 persons would have been drowned If this vessel had sank, no -mat ter how calm the sea. But who believes that under such circumstances 700 per sons would have -been saved? . In the struggle for life many would have been drowned, and if one-quarter of the pas sengers escaped in the boats from the sinking vessel we might consider the re sult fortunate. The objection to boats is that they take up a great deal of room ITie law allows the officers of steamers to supply the place of boats by carrying rafts, providing a certain number of the former are supplied to the ship. As far as the great trunk lines of steamers ar concerned, rafts of proper construction easily launched would be as good as boats; as persons in them are almost sure to be picked up in a short time by other steamers in the same course. Un fortunately, however, the selfishness of the owners of steamers leads them to purchase "cheap" raftn without regard to their utility. The raft on the Metis could not be launched at all; why does not appear in the evidence. There was recent convention of lake captains in Cleveland, and the fact there leaked out thatthe same culpable neglect rendered the provisions for the safety of passen gers on lake steamers equally poor and inadequate in case of accident. Con gress should pass a law requiring nil passenger steamers to be supplied with number of "rafts" that can be used, and captains or owners of vessels violat ing its provisions should be rigorously dealt with. A queer monopoly in oil manifests it self. The last meeting of the oil pro ducers, held at Oil City, resulted in the resolve to " shut down" on oil for the next thirty days. So the wells those famous taps of the natural oil reservoirs of the oil region are to stand idle and no more wells are to be drilled until the monopolists say yea! This manifesta tion is odd in several aspects. It disap points the favorite politico-economic ex pectation that the demand will always be equal to the supply, for it was es pecially contended in the case of oil that oil would be wanted for so manv uses that not all Oil Creek could ever yield too much of it. The prospects of its enter ing into use as fuel for engines and lo comotives became suddenly dim about two years ago; but the equally sudden decline of the supply of petroleum was thought for a considerable time to neu tralize the lack of demand tor it, for that and other purposes. That such has not been the result was of course even more disappointing to the oil-well owners than to the political economists, and the action they have just now taken will very likely be denounced as arbitrary and outrageous by persons not thorough ly learned in the ethics of production and trade. At first the simple fact that the oil which lias ceased to flow is the spontaneous product f mother earth does seem to accuse the proprietors of the oil wells of retarding the development of nature for their own profit. But moment's reflection blunts this point and makes its appear that men and com panics who have by large expenditure of brains, money and toil bored the wells which penetrate to the oil reser voirs-in the on regions, nave quite as good a right to quit pumping those wells when it does not pay to pump them as a farmer has to quit sowing wheat or shcnhci'd to quit raising or shearing sheep when the grain, the mutton, or the wool ceases to bring a fair profit. And the only way of escape from this propo sition is through the sophistical and tangled argument that no one has ight to cease doing what he can do bet ter than ahv one else ((. e he has no right to cease pumping oil when he, having an oil well, can pump oil better than auv oiu: else) both on account of the good of his own soul and fo the sen sitive pockets of consumers of oil. We are sure that the entire commercial com munity would call this latter argument ' too thiu." NOTES FROM AFAR. OUR Oiry CORBESPOXDEKT8.

On the morning of the 18th of June I departed from the Navaioe Agency in company with my native, guide, for long ride to the Southern Settlement in Utah. John as I christened my Navajoe companion, has an intellect that is not to be sneezed at. He knows the whole country between the Little and Big Col- orados like a book; and in the good old days before bis tribe were bound by troublesome treaties, has been on many a trip to the Mormau settlements in the business of equine abduction. (Nobody steals now-a-days). He rides a short ftur- ro, which carries in addition some tinr- tv nounds of flour and bacon : while ride a large gray American norse and take charge of the sugars, coffee and other light articles. Our direction is northwest to tne ueau of Canyon de Chelley. All this part of Arazona consists oi a succession ot High. almost barren sandstone ridges, separa ted by narrow valleys aoouiiaing in rich grass. While on its eastern Dorcier thought the JNavajoe reservation a very poor strip it contains nearly 6,000 square miles, but since I have seen more of it I think it will graze at least half a million sheep and goats, besides horses enough tor the necessities ot the trine Toward evening we enter the great A a- vajoe Forest, the finest piece of timber 1 have ever seen except that near the Big Trees in California. The strip is some twenty miles long and twelve broad, aud we journeyed through it some niteen miles. The immense sugar pines, mixed with the other timber occasionally ,stand so thickly as to completely exclude the sunlight; a dead calm prevails, and far above us .we can hear the sighings of the wind which had been quite violent on the open plain. De Challey is not im mediately accessible at the bead, begin uing with an abrupt pitch of several hundred feet; so we may enter it by way of Bat Can von. At the head of this we encauin for the night June lien. vv e hasten to uescenu into the Canyon before the sun is high. The way is fearful. Bat Canyon begins with a wild and craggy gorge, dowu which the sight can pierce for six or seven hun dred feet, quite iuaccessable, but a little further along Is a side gulch which ier mits descent. Making all tight we trail halters over the backs of our animals and cautiously urge them before us ; aud in two hours reach the beginning ot a gen tie slope a thousand leet below. But little farther the sides come so near to gether as to exclude the sun, and thous ands of bats flit about in a gloomy mid day twilight. A few miles down througl: this uanyon ao unaiiev, where tue sce nery is sublime. The general height of the dills is nearly 2,0w leet, almost per pendicular, and with sandstone face wo ven into a thousand fanciful shapes by the action of the elements. Elephants and Hippopotami, towers ami castles monstrous forms and giant heads line the edge of the cliff in grotesque order for miles. When the 35th parallel railroad is finished, this vicinity will be the lo- Semite of Arazona. But here are also wonders of art, or more properly of an tiquity; the "cliff cities" standing half way up the walls of the Canyon, once inhabited and now utterly inaccessable One of them is fifteen hundred feet above the bottom of the Canyon and three or four hundred below the top; ev ery hous3 appears in perfect preserva tion, a field glass shows the whitewash still on the joints, and its size indicates that the town once contained near thousand inhabitants. We reached the first of these towns little after noon. It was a mere ham let of not more than twenty houses, and appeared between three and lour bun dred leet above the ground, ihe op posite side ot the Canyon was accessable and there with the aid or my guiue climbed to a point alittle above the town whence I could see into the nouses They are of the same general construc tion, evidently once inhabited by branch of the same race as the towns of the Pueblos' Moquis and Zuuls, and built in such places no doubt, for refuge against the attacks ot Apaches or other mounted Indians. We traveled but few miles down the Canyon , putting in the day examining these curious towns, I found but one accessable. It was only hftv feet up ; the bottom below it was strewn with ruins, evidently fallen from above, and ouly portions of the houses 'were standing. This gave me a clue to the situation. I am convinced that at the time these towns were inhabited the off sets on which they sre built extended much farther out, and were connected with the bottom by continuing projec tions of the stone, furnishing a basis for regular stone stairways. But in this disintegrating sand-rock these projec tions have fallen away, leaving the towns issolatcd ; and where the stream runs close it has undermined the cliff. We camped in the midst of scenery worth journeying a thousand miles to see. Above us rises a sharp corner of rock for some twelve hundred feet; on the op posite side the rocky face presents in suc cessive lines and grooves the complete history of the wearing dowu of the Can yon, and between the two peaks a little cove stretches back into the mountain containing a tract of rich green grass. Here, in an oval valley containing some thing like five hundred acres of rich pasture land, walled in by yellow cliffs and opening only toward the main can yon, dwells a little band of some fifty Aavajoes. llieir young people crowd about our fire, examining eserything with a slightlv troublesome curiosity, and chatter witli John'in their Harsh northern whistline. gniutinjr Kutteral, Which they're obliged to hiss "and spit and spin ier an." Or so it seems to an American ear; while I endeavor to make out a few notes upon the trip between the intervals of gazing on the scenery. tEAII.E. NEWS OF THE WEEK. ZHZOZLvHIE.

Hie great iCepublicau demonstration on Tuesday was a grand aud imposing one, notwithstanding the exceedingly adverse nature of the weather during the previous fortv-eight hours. The delegations from the country were not as large as they would have been with more auspicious sKies. Hie procession was one ol thennest ever seen in Cleve land. Though scarcely as large as that of four years ago, the display was very fine, ln.the evening an audience of about six thousand persons gathered at the Central Rink, when the Welsh Glee Club of Newburg appeared and sung some patriotic songs. Mr. N. B. Sher- win then introduced Hon. H. Lpson, who made quite extended remarks. Stentorian voices called for Senator Wil son as soon as Mr. Blaine concluded his telling address, ancLanother grand ova tion was extended to the everywhere re spected Massachusetts orator. At an early hour in the evening people began to assemble around the pavilion in the park. By the time t"bat the speaking was ready to commence, as tar as the eye could reachjuothing was visible but a sea of upturned faces. The parade of torch-bearers in the evening was conce ded by all to be the finest ever witnessed in Cleveland. Although the skies were threatening the entire evening, and there were at times ominons sprin kles of rain, the weather was, upon the whole, highly satisfactory and the thanks of all concerned are duly tendered to Old Probabilities" for his good behav ior. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. Recent newspaper reports of threaten ed troubles in the Creek nation are found to be false. The Acting Secretary of the Treasury has directed the Assistant Treasurer at New York to purchase one million bonds each Wednesday and to sell one million of gold each Thursday, during the month of October. Superintendent Bangs, of the postal railway service, estimates that the in crease in the number of miles of service for the present fiscal year, ending June 30, 1873, will be 10,000 against 8,000 Jor the last fiscal year. The stamp duty upon all documents, except bank checks, drafts or orders, ex pires Sept.30th, in accordance with a re cent act of Congress. Hereafter no stamps will be required on any legal documents whatever, no paper being subject to stamp duty except bank checks, drafts or orders, as above men tioned. No stamp is required on foreign bills of exchange. The acting Commissioner of Internal Revenue has decided that wholesale and retail liquor dealers may continue to sell malt liquors under their special tax re ceipts, as such, without being assessed as malt liquor dealers, and that the col lection of taxes assessed contrary to that construction shall be suspended until the question can be brought before Con gress. Persons who sell only malt liq uors are liable only to a special tax of twenty or fifty cents, accordiny as they are wholesale or retail dealers in malt liquors. PENNSYLVANIA. At a final meeting of the oil producers, held at Oil City, relative to the shutting down of wells, it was unanimously agreed to suspend all pumping wells. aiso further drilling, for a period of thirty days. Resolutions were also adopted prohibiting the use of Roberts' torpedos until after March 1873. All the districts are represented at the meeting, and the feeling was unanimous The object is thoroughly accomplished, A number of wells throughout the oil regions were stopped at midnight on Friday, and the balance will follow soon. " The movement recently inaugur ated in the oil producing regions to stop pumping wells to raise the price of oil, has met with very general success. Nearly every firm in the region will keep up their pay rolls during the sus pension. The unanimity among the pro ducers is astonishing. The most impor tant phase of the movement is that it binds the producers together In a solid organization and they will hereafter keep prices up to paying figures. MISSOURI. An invitation, signed by a large num ber of business men, both Democrats and Republicans, has been sent to Sec retary Boutwell, asking him to made a speech on the financial condition of the country and the prominent questions of the day. Henry E. Alvord, Special Indian Com missioner, and Enoch Hoag, Superin tendent of Indian An airs, arrived in St. Louis Wednesday with fifty-one wild Indians from the country west of Arkan sas and Texas, and five interpreters. The party consists of twelve Camaehes and seven squaws, four Kiowas and two squaws, three Apaches and two squaws, six Arapahoes, three Caddoes, three Wichitos, two Towaccahoes, one Wacoo, one Keccliie, and one Delaware. Cap tain Alvord states that he don't waut this considered a peace omission. There have been no propositions of peace made to these people: they have been told what they must and what they must not do. "We are now on the way to Wash ington, wjiere they -will have a confer ence with the President and authorities. The Indians are a special representation of their tribes, and all tribes that have been creating disturbances in Kansas and south of that State, with the excep tion of the Cheyennes, are represented. ' UTAH. Affidavits were taken in the Moun tain Meadow massacre, fully coroborat- mg the testimony of Bishop Smith and giving further details, showing more positively the guilt of the .Mormon lead-, ers. Testimony is also being obtained, proving the identity of the assassin of JJr. Robinson. Passengers on the Union Pacific Rail road report immense work along the line to protect the track from snow. The division superintendants are confident that there will be no blockade the com ing winter. A heavy snow storm was in the neigh borhood mountains on Monday night, between Evanston and Wahsatch. Dril'ts were three feet deep. Telegraph wires were blown down. XEYT YORK. A Washington dispatch says that. Areh-Biliop BayleyV installation and reception of the P 'allium will take place in the cathedral at Baltimore, October 13th. John McKeou. senior counsel for Stokes, says he sees no reason for a change of venue. The new trial will take place next month. McKeon fears he will be unable to conduct it, on account of his health. Comptroller Green denies his inten tion of closing any hospitals or charit able institution, and says he intends to adopt some means to furnish those in need with funds. The official statement shows a decrease in the county expen ditures for the year ending September 1st, compared with previous year of neoriy two million dollars. Spence Pettus, arrested for complicity in the sale ol Donus stolen trom a aiiii neappolis bank, is said to have given in formation relative to a large number of forgeries, including a large amount of railroad bonds sent to Europe and repor ted to be returned here and disposed of in small lots. At a special meeting of the Demo cratic General Committee in Tanimanv Hall, quite a number of members were excluded, by a large majority, for oppo sition to the regular candidates of the party. The discussion was quite stormy, one -of the excluded declaring himself in favor of Greeley, and another saying it was impossible to reconcile the mends of Tweed and Tilden. It was also resol ved to issue a call for a Convention to nominate candidates for citv and county ollices. A base ball tournament lias been ar- raugeri to take place on the Union grounds, beginniug October Sth, to con tinue for one week. The prizes amount to four thousand dollars. The Bostons, aud Athletics will compete for the pri zes. The Police Commissioners recently refused permission to St. Patrick's Mu tual Alliance Society to form iu proces- 1011 lor the purpose 01 participating in the laying of a corner stone of a church in Jersey City. It had been rumored that that, ascociatiou would parade in violation of law, hence a heavy force of ponce was in readiness tor service, but the members of the society to the num ber of about six thousand crossed the ferry in groups ar.d paraded in Jersey City. A procession of the Society from Brooklyn was disbanded by the police. ST A IS I'll AJiD STIKl'HMU. The beautiful display of starch to Ije seen at the Exposition gave rise the oth er day to the question, '-How came starch to be first used?" The Dutch are said to have first inade and used the article. Previous to and in the early part of the reigu of Queen Jblizabeth, kerclnets, cults aud runs were worn made of finest linen brought from Holland, which required little stiffening. With the introduction of cambrics and fabrics containing less body the necessity lor some body that would give firmness and keep the plaits of the ruus in place, lea to the use ot starch. A writer describing these times speaks of the perplexity of the Queen as to how she could nave her runs starched, there being no one m iingiana who under stood the art. At length the wife of her coachman undertook to prepare this part of the royal wardrobe, having iu some mauner learned how it was done. This is not the onljr record of the art of stittening mystifying royalty. It is related of the celebrated Buau Briumnel that he directed all his genius to tin in vention of some.artiele for the neck which would supersede and do away with the padded and wadded adomr.ia- tions which the gentlemen of his day wore about their throats, lie closeted himself with nis valer, whom he swore to secrecy, locked his doors and denied himself to his friends. At length one evening he appeared respleudaut in a white cravat, without spot, blemish, or wrinkle. Pale with envy the fops, crowded around him eyeiug his choker, and begging to know how.it was done,but he was deaf eveu to "the first gentlemen in Europe." He kept the secret for some time by preparing his own cravats, aud shutting himself in jwhen he did so. Obliged to leave London he relented, and in contemptuous disdain wrote up on his door "Starch is the man." The same writer quoted above informs us that Flow Passe in the year 1SG4, came to London from Flanders, and for some 6 a lesson instructed ladies and ladies maids into the mystery of clear starching and preparing the starch. Later in the reign of James I, the art was pretty well understood. The French had improved on the white starch, and ladies appeared in ruffs of all colors, but yellow was the favorite and;, fashionable hue. This continued in vogue until it was made odious by Mrs. Turner, who being convicted of poisoning Sir Tuomas Over bury, mounted the scaffold and was be headed, dressed in black satin sml wearing "yellow starched tiffany ruff and cuff." From that time yellow starch went out of fashion, and it has never since come in. British gum or dextrine which is largely used for stiffening cotton goods is starch brought to a high degree of heat. The discovery that dextrine could be so produced was made by accident. A starch factory was burned down ; a work man observed this new substance among the ruins, aud, being impressed that if was valuable and would .supply a large want, tried it. It proved the new agent he hoped it would be. He communica ted his.discovery to a friend, and the two prooeeded to manufacture the gum. They were successful and had many ap plications from many manufacturers for the secret, but refused to tell. They, however, fell upon evil times. They had no capital, either guarded their secret ill or were forced to sell it for :au insignifi cant sum. As in most instances of great discoveries, they reaped but little beuelit from it, while others made fortunes. This is the age of starch. Everything is stiff. The graceful flowing India m us lins of our grandmothers, which fell in wavy lines about their figures, are no longer seen, Xothing falls, everything protrudes. One of the slang sayings of the day, like most such in use, more ex pressive than elegant, "Take the starch out of him," is happily descriptive of moral or other limpness.

Terms $2.00 per year. o THE Journal, with the numlier for .Inly 13, enters upon its Second Volume with the highest prospects for the future. Throughout the year just past it has endeavored tofnffll, and has,fulllled the promises contained in its original prospectus, and its aim to present an elegant miscellany of pure and pleasant literature has been so far carried out as was possible in view of the many obst acles necessarily incident to the first year of publication. As set forth on its title page it has been devo 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. Xo pains or expense have ever been spared to make the Journal the best paper published in this section of the State, and for the year Just commencing no other or better promise could be asked than that furnished by its past record. Xew attractions are constantly being prepared lor its readers and none will dispute the asser tion that its enterprise and energy ha ve already won for it a foremost place in the ranks of co- tcmporancous publications. By its influence the newspapers of this seetion have been driven into exuition never before made and while the pa pers here are now a pride to every citizen it ought not to be forgotten that their marked im provement has becu made within the year last past or in other words since the establishment of the Journal. :g-h:t SPECIAL REASONS Which cannot fail to commend the Journal to every class of the reading public. First. Because it is the larerest naer ever published in this county, and because it fur nishes each week nearly tbree columns more rending; than all tne other pa pers combined. Second. Because it has a larger list of contributors than any other paper in Northern Ohio. Third. Because it is in every sense of the wonl, "a live paper," "for live people." Four! H. Because it is, in the broadest sense, lair and independent nion all subjects, wheth er Social, Beligious or Political: Fitl n. Because its articles are all to the point and its columns are not filled with long and prosy essays devoid of all interest. Sixth. Because it gathers the news trom all quarters of the world, by telegraph and through its own special correspondents and re porters, and condenses it into such brief shape" as tp present a reliable mirror of all that is go ing on in this and other countries. Seventh. Because its Market Reports of Stock, Grain, Groceries, and Agricultural pro ducts, of home and foreign markets are always reliable. Eighth. Because it is a paper for the Home Circle always having something for the young folks, as well as the old folks; some thing for the humorous as well as the thought ful; something for the gentlemen as well as theladics; iu fact, something for all tastes. New Features. Eor the year just commencing the publishers of the Journal are preparing several new and attractive specialties which will be brought out as fast as possible.
