JAMES E. CHAMBERS, Editor. SATURDAY, - OCTOBER 19 , 1872. EDITORIAL PAKttBAPHS. The Persian Government lias placed the rf Old Catholic " faith legally on the same footing as the other two recognized churches, by acknowledging the bind ing force of its ministers' acts. Infal libilist priests are now required to enter on the parish books, births, marriages, &c, when solemnized by Old Catholic clergymen, when they are requested to do so by them. Sara Fayson Willis Parton better known as. the brilliant paragraphist Fanny Fern we are now told 13 no more and those, who looked weekly for her spicy, biting lines will be forced to feel the loss which is theirs as much as it is that of ber friends and relations. Born in Portland, Maine, she received her education at the school of Miss Catherine Beecher, at Hartford, when Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe was then a junior teacher. Married to a Mr. Charles Eldridge, cashier of a Boston bank, she lived happily with him for a number of years, but his sudden death, and her quarrel with her brother, K. P. Willis, threw her upon her own resources, to maintain herself and children. Her first attempts to earn a living with her pen were not successful, but finally se curing the ear of the public she thence forth never lost her hold upon the affec tions of her readers. AT least one of the police magistrates of New York, shows a lamentable lack of appreciation for the natural desire of the light-fingered gentry of that city, so toadorn their persons as to render them presentable in Broadway.- ' What is a thief or gambler without his diamonds? He is looked down tiDon by his brethern Mi unskilled .and incompetent, and can not but lead a miserable life. Yet dia monds are not to him such necessities of existence; as an abundant supply of handkerchiefs and variegated neckties, without which the world seems cold and cheerless, and the open street but a place where want and despair stalk aboatl. Viewed lu this light the late sentence of Mr.' John Wilson to two and a half years of pining in the State Prison iuerelv because he appropriated to his use f48 worth of neckties and handker chiefs,cannot but strike the aesthetic per son as a heartless endeavor to suppress the growth -of a love of the beautiful among a class of men who so much ap preciate and so sorely necn it. New York is becoming virtuous. In her Criminal Court, a man named David Massey, has been convicted of the of fense of distributing obscene publica tions through the post-office, and lias been sentenced to pay a fine of $500, and one year's confinement in the pen itentiary. For New York this is a good thing well doue. . The principal evi dence that led to his conviction was the testimony of A. F. Comstock, who, it ap pears, had written to the " Professor," as he styled himself, under various names and from different places, for specimens of the goods he was dealing in. It was in reply to this that Massey had sent his immoral and obscene stuff. It furthermore appeared that no less than thirteen tons weight of obscene books and pictures, all the property of the prisoner, had already been seized by Mr. Comstock, and that ten tons more of this abominable stuff were, at the time of the trial, deposited in the cel lars of the Tract Society to await the judgment of the Court for its destruc tion. The jury found Massey guilty af ter but a few minutes of deliberation, and the Court sentenced bin to the ex treme limit of the law. How much of ftucli infamous busiuss is being done fontinually can not, perhaps, be fully known. But the revelation made in tliis one, case, may serve to show the need there is of public vigilance for lui ting a stop to the circulation of these vile ami villainous articles, which so 31- reetly lend to sap the foundations of public 'morals, and turn the country over to a carnival of crime. Jx another column will be found the announcement of the death of Wm. II JSeward, an event which as there had been no intimation of immediate danger "may be said to have fairly taken the country by surprise. For many years Mr.. Seward's name has been as familiar as a household word, and his eminent abilities both as orator and writer have made him conspicuous since early life As a State legislator, Governor, Sena tor and Cabinet officer, his career has been marked by singular ability, and uprightness of character.' Against his personal integrity there has never been si whisper heard. Born at the begin ning of the present century! his whole adult life, almost, has been given to the public service. Few men excelled him in felicity of oratory, when the topics discussed werephilosophieal and funda mental. His mind was singularly lucid upon questions depending upon ultimate principles, which minds more superfi cial than his would have failed to dis cover. As a political writer Mr. Seward had no superior. His management of our foreign relations during his long in cumbency of the State department was of the most masterly character; and the amount of personal labor given to that serv ice during the critical periods of the war was inconceivable. The work of his Department was never in arrears, vast and complicated as were its duties and demands. For some time retired from active life the past few years have xeu passed in comparative retirement .amidst literary pursnits, and at the time of hU death Mr. Seward was engaged aipon a work for which the public will now look all the more anxiously, that it author has passed to his final resting )Uu.'C. A Queer Question has recently arisen cmieerning the African. Queer questions are continually arising about the Afrl- onn. The present one has however, just got his quietus by an opinion from the Attorney General of the United States The question arose in this wise : One of the persons pnt in nomination as Presidential elector in the State of Mis sissippi Is a colored man. It has recently heen discovered that he was .not Ameri can born; but was an alien, never hav ing been naturalized. The ques tion was made to Attorney General Wil liams, whether an African alien could receive naturalization papers. The At torney General declined an answer, inas- juuiqIi as the Junctions or his office did jnot warrent him in giving opinions ex A-ent to the President or heads of de partments. The President was then 4uetloMed by the committee having the matter 1m fharge, and he called for the Attorney (General's opinion. It was found on investigation that the act of 1870 had provided for the naturalization of persons of AfrUa nativity, as well as for persons of. African descent. So the alien African Presidential elector jmay possess his soul in conuUieu.ee of being enough of a citizen to enable him to cant the vote of a sovereign State for Preside jof the ' United States. And that one Might think, would be quite euough of cirizeoi'hip for one man to ..carry. Book and Papern.

The November number of Gody's Lady's Book, is presented to the public as one of special interest to all classes. We have here fashions for those who de sire them ; literature of a character cal culated to adorn the mind and make home a paradise, with instructions in everything that make up the pleasures of a happy fireside. The beautiful steel and wood engravings are something to look upon. We understand that the an nouncement of Godey in his October number, that lie would give a-Chromoto every subscriber for the year 1873, has created a sensation throughout the'eoun try. His well-known reputation of ful filling, and in fact exceeding, all his promises, has lea the reading pumic to lookjfor something extra in the Clirouio line. And they will not bedisappointed. Those who have seen the early proofs of "Our Darling" speak of it with the highest praise, and as far surpassing anything before offered by publishers. The Journal, with the Souvenir as its premium, and Godey with the Chromo will be furnished all together for $4.50. Peterson's Magazine for November is on our table, ahead of all others. It is an unusually good number, eveu for this first-class lady's book. The princi pal Steele Plate, "A Game Two Can Play At," is from an original picture, and is a capital illustration of one of the best stories we have read for months. A prominent feature of this Magazine is its copyright Novelettes, two of which appear in this number, "Lindsay's Luck," by Fanny Hodgson, "And Bought With A Price," by Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, both very far superior to the continued stories to be found in magazines generallv. But, us a cotem- porary says, the stories, the Jashions, the patterns, in short everything in Peterson's is the best of its kind, Xtie price ot tins magazine, too, is another thing in its fa vor. It is but two dollars a year. The Prospectus for 1873 is published with this ii umber, and we find the prices to Clubs are astonishingly low, vis., three copies for $4.50, with a superb Mezzotint (10 inches by twenty), "Christ Weeping Over Jerusalem," to the person getting up the club; or six copies for $9.00, and a copy of the magazine for 1873 as a premium to the person getting up the club; or eight copies for $12.00, and both, au extra copy and the premium engra ving to the person getting up ths cTub. For large clubs the prices are even lower, a choice ot six splendid premiums engravings, for framing, is given for fifty cents extra, to subscribers for "Pe terson" for 1873.

Peterson, 306 Chest nut Street, Philadelphia. The Golden Age has published a beau tiful portrait of Hon. Horace Greeley, life-size head and bust, executed in fine lithographic style, suitable lor hangings ou the wall of a parlor, or library, or club-room. The original was a photo graph from life, taken by Pearsall in .Brooklyn, drawn on stoue Dy JtsaKer ot Boston, and lithographed by Armstrong of that city. The head is exactly the size of life, showing how big the brain must be that dwells within it. The ex pression is pleasing. The white hair is soft and silky. The spectacles have a wise look. The beard ripples over the collar with a graceful curve. The dress is not disheveled. The coat is of black broadcloth, such as Mr. Greeley gener ally wears, The picture is thoroughly characteristic of the man, and an admir able success especially gratifying to Mr. Greeley's intimate friends. The success wluUi nas attended trie - Golden Age s portrait of Mr. Greeley has prompted the proprieters to follow this admirable and popular picture with a companion likeness or lion, unarlcs Sumner. Tins new lithograph will be an engraving as successful and popular as the old. The original is a photograph selected by Mr. Sumner himself. The lithographic cop ies, printed on thick white paper, will go safely through the post-office, each wrapped eareiully on a-roller. The pos tage will be paid by the Golden Age. These works of art "(size 24x30, price $1 eaeh,) have been executed under the su- perinteudance ot Mr. Tilton, and are the best Lithographic Likenesses ot Messrs. Greeley aiid Sumner made. Every new subscriber for six months, will receive (at his option) either the portrait of Mr. Greeley or Mr. Sumner. Every new subscriber for one year, or every old subscriber renewing for one year, will receive both these valuable pictures. The subscription for half a year is $1.50; for a .whole year, $3. The pictures them selves are more than worth the money They are life-size, suitable for framing, and will be welcome in the households of thousands of American citizens, who, without distinction ot party, love and honor these representative and celebra ted men.

Journal: Having had frequent applications for information relating to this portion of Kansas, I find myself un able to reply as fully as I would wish to each one, and threfore would ask that you publish the following, embodying certain facts that ought to be known in order to counteract a very erroneous impression, that, seems to prevail in ref erence to this part of the country. .None of the new counties in this State have been so badly misrepresented as Sumner. A year and a half ago, the westward bound emigrant was told that west of the Arkansas river there was nothing but a broad expanse of alkali prairie, upon which even the hardy musquit grass would not grow. And even now we hear it said in the coun ties farther east, that there is but a small strip of land west of the river fit for set tlement ana cultivation. These things have been said of Sum ner county so long that many believe them, 'and thus the settlement of our county is retarded. But the fact is, that there is no finer body of agricultural land in the State than this county. The bottoms of the Arkansas river on the west side are so wide, and the ascent so grad ual, that it is almost impossible to tell just where the bottoms end and the up lands begin. And as to the soil, there is little difference. The finest of crops are grown both on the high and low lands. Then we have a large number of streams flowing through the county from the northwest to the southwest, ail of which have valleys varying from one to six miles in width. What are really uplands here, have a loose, red-colored soil, similar in appearance to the wheat growing regions of Wisconsin and Iowa: While tiie low lands have a deep, black loam, such as is foil nil in the corn grow ing portions of Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa. Along all the streams in the county, belts of timber are found, varying in width from a few rods to more than a mile. And this timber is not as many suppose, a species of stunted cottonwood, but is jujhieljy oak, blackberry and wal nut, tne former predominating. Nor is the growth of this a stunted one. Many of the trees growing uhmt cur streams are suitable for sowing into lumber, au- would compare favorably with the same kind of trees grown in a timbered coun try. In fact, for a prairie country, Sum ner comity is well timbered. The county i situated in the body of land known as the Osage Diminished Reservation, which lauds are subject to sale to actual settlers at $1.25 per acre, and are being fast settled by ah indus trious enterprising class of people from the Eastern States. Yet there is a large amount of agricultural lands in this county still subject to be taken, and with the natural advantages whjeh we pos sess the great area of arable land, the close proximity to the Indian Territory, which will oe the Dorder ior years 10 come in fact that a numoer oi rauroaus lire now in process of construction, that cannot by any probability avoid run ning through the county all tenu to point to the fact that in a few years Sum ner is destined to become one ot ; tne wealthiest counties in the State. Across the Csstweat. - " -LETTER XUMBIX TWUTf June 22-i The Moquis are a strange, isolated, and unaccountable race of In dians (some doubt the"Indians") who live in well-built towns on the summit of lofty Mesas. Their location is nearly on latitude 36, about one hundred miles west of the eastern line of Arizona. Conjecture wearies in , the attempt to make out who they are, ami how they came here. The v differ from all other Indians in almost every ' respect. They never go to war, and have a horror of shedding blood. They are not so dark or smoky-looking as the Utes or Arapahoes but rather of a bright mahogany color. Thev are not tall and gaunt, with the aborignal high cheek bone : but ronud featured, mild-eyed, and full in person, inclining to tiie stout built. They are scrupulously honest, and the women are reputed perfectly chaste., .siyNava- joe takes no pains to guard our proper ty here as among nis own people; all come and go in our room at will, and he assures me that it is perfectly safe. They work very hard and live poorly; but are generally healthy, and seem contented mid happy. There are no oaths in their language; they have no great disputes; are ignorant of liquor, tobacco being their only stimulant ; they have acquired neither the diseases nor the vices of the white man, and are totally unconscious i of social evils. Really, they ought to send missionaries to New York. June 23d. I worked my way down the cliff to-tlaj' to the main spring. Besides the one passable for horses there are two wa vs persons can travel ; and the Moquis women go springing up these with wa ter-jugs strapped to their heads, making the distance in ntteen minutes, winch requires an hour for me. These springs are all high up the foothills, about the line where they give way to the perpen dicular cliff; and the main one easily fortified to be inaccessible from below. All their provision is stored in their houses, and thus at any moment they are ready for.a siege. , This state of af fairs seems to be the result of a time when thev were much troubled by the Apaches. They are at peace now. The country presents tne hardest pros pect of farming I ever saw. Down among the lower sand-hills and out on the plain, are their little fields, each about three rods square. They dig a hole some sixteen inches deep, through the dry sand, and into a moist stratum in the edge of which they plant the grain. Then they pile a tew stones around the hill to draw moisture, and seating them selves by the field in a white dress pray lor rain, if none comes in time, they carry water by the jug-full from the springs, and dash a pint or so on each hill. By such labor eacn family produ ces five or six bushels of grain. Their principal living is of corn and goat's milk; their luxenes are mutton, aog meat and dried peaches. Many trees grow in the mountains near, and yield fruit every year. They occasionally gather Mescal from some place farther south. -.'-,-' June 24th. We took dinner by express invitation witu Chino. The bill of fare ran thus; corn-mush, wafer-bread, dog meat, parched corn, and goat's milk. I also took along a box of sardines, but. neither Moonis nor Navajoe eat anything of the fish kind. The party consisted of myself and Navajoe guide, Chino and a grown son, and two Moquis who -talk Spanish, and call themselves Papa and Misiamtewah. considering that we rep resented three languages and talked quite imperfectly at that, in the fourth we had a very social time. This is a period of scarcity with them ; their crop was a total failure two years ago, and a partial failure last year. w no are tne Moqmsr it you put it as a conundrum 1 give it up. It is evident that these Pueblo races Zunis, Moquis, Tegnas, and Pueblos are ot one origi nal ; but there I cannot trace their origin. They have successively been called Jews, Egyptians, Japanese, Syrians; the Chi nese now claim thenu ' Quien Sabe? June 25fA. I have had a delightful three days rest at the Moqui towns, not ing ten times as many curious things as I have space to set down here. We leave to-day, intending to traverse the distance to Lee's Ferry on the Colorado in five days. 1 must he my own post master, carry this communication through, and mail it at the first office I reach in Utah. Beadlk. South America. U. S. Flagship California, 1 Panama U. S. op Columbia j August 26th. 1872. . , It is a difficult matter to give a fair idea of the interior of .Valparaiso for turn whichever way you please and some strange anomoly paesents itself to the view. Originally a Spanish city with all its peculiarities of plan aud architec ture, the people speaking the same lan guage,,, having the same manners and customs, the same religion and but a few years independent of that country, yet the name of Spaniard is held in the ut most detestation and mentioned only with the heartiest , well, anything but blessings. And then the influx of foreigners, chiefly of the Anglo-Saxon raee, bringing with them their customs and not blending to auy great extent with the natives must necessarily produce great clangor. - JN early all tne husmess of the place both local aud commercial has been absorbed by the foreign ele ment; whether from lack of capital or want of enterprise, it is certain neverthe less that the native merchants do not try to compete with their energetic go-ahead rivals.thougli they do seem to bear more business qualities than in any other Spanish citv. Shocks of earthquakes have been felt occasionally, and their disastrous effects have taught ttie people to build their houses long and low. This the foreigners have disregarded and fol low the same system observed at home of building higher and more elegant struc tures. It forms quite a striking contrast to see over one door a sign with a famil iar name, say John Smith for instance, and over the next ope a Spanish name so long that It would take yon an hour to pronounce it, and near a day to write it. But perhaps the greatest surprise of all in this remarkable city was the ap pearance of a street car jogging along as unpretendingly as though it was an old inhabitant and appreciated its dignity. You may not think this an evidence of enterprise, being accustomed to Ameri can cities where street cars are now an old institution, but just remember Lon don is still dependent upon cabs and han soms and Paris upon stages and omui busses for transportation and all other European cities still follow in their wake, and then you can better appreci ate the surprise it occasions to find them way down here in South American cities, Di 1 you ever see any cars with two stories or rather the top fur nished with seats and a railing placed around it? That is the way these are ar ranged, and the upper seats are well patronized. Two and a half cents for one of these, and five cents for the more aristocratic seats below. The streets are so narrow that two cars can scarcely pass, (the track being double,) without touching or striking against peoplo on the sidewalk. Most of the houses have balconies and these approach so close that two persons ou opposite sides of the street could easily carry on an ordinary conversation. There are very lew im posing buildings, either in size or archi tecture. The custom-house, post-office, theatre, cathedral and some of the busi ness houses occupied by foreigners, are the most notable structures. The hotel, "Odds," Is the only really first-class in stitution of the kind, the others being very inferior. . Of, their schools, or systems of ednca tion, I cannot give you any information, but ao not think much attention is paid to it. The great mass of the people are poor and ignorant and .seem to be con tented to stay so. They are said to re semble the Chinese in many respects, but I failed to detect it. In personal ap pearance they get the best of the celes tials, but the latter are infinitely supe rior In mental attainments, in mechan ical skill either in designing or copying, and excel them in manual labor eveu. I was very much disappointed at the state of affairs in Chila. Having heard exaggerated accounts of the prosperity and progress of the country I had expec ted to find it iu many respects very much like the United States. Instead of that, it proved to be quite the reverse; though at peace just at present, revolu tions are nearly as frequent as in Peru; there are no manufactures, and no capital or disposition to start them ; very few schools apparently, and they poorly attended. Agriculture in a backward state,-as well as the means for conduct ing It; their mines of copper and iron worked by foreigners and sent abroad for manufacture, and that commerce nearly monopolized by the same class. This is the state of the country as it ap peared to me divested of pll tinsel and exaggeration. We made a trip up to Santiago the capitol distant over a hundred miles from Y; went Into Coquimbo, Caldera and Serena three of the principal sea ports, and spent nearly a month in V It may be my conclusions are somewhat unfair to the country for we saw but lit tle of the rural portion except, along the lines of railway. I am simply telling you what came under our observations and "naught set down in malice." Soon after our arrival, a ball was given by the President, or to him, 1 have forgotten which. The theatre was used for the purpose, and was gorgeously fitted ud; all the foreign and diplomatic officers received invitations ana "the .Beauty and the Chivalry of Chili were gathered there." It was a grand affair, but there was such a fearful jam, that we were glad to make our escape at an early hour. Our receptions aboard ship were not as namerous here as in other ports, very few of the people being able to speak English. Went to the theatre one night and saw the play of "Lucretia Borgia;" it was in Spanish of course, and none of us being very weli versed iu that tongue, we had to depend upon our knowledge of the play itself with the as sistance of the pantomine actions of the players. There was aiso an opera troupe, of no celebrity however except local. which we had the pleasure of hearing occasionally. Thera are many other things that might be mentioned, only that I have too much respect for your feelings to open this long-winded yarn out auy further. If yon find it very rambling and unconnected please re member the difficulties of writing when you are liable to be coutinually interrup ted, with-several others talking and amusing themselves in various ways. I intended to send this letter per steamer of the 13th, but she has not arrived and there are fears of her loss. It is now the 30th, and no signs or tidings of her yet. Will send this on the 3d.

Morti fying as is the fact, justice to Liberal Republicans, and an earnest desire to re trieve the misfortune, requires ns to de clare it. In our chief towns the Liberals exceeded our most sanguine estimate. In the country it fell short but the aggre gate ot laDerais in tne city ana country who voted our state ticket, added to the Democratic vote of 1868, would have overcome the Republican majority at that election and the negro vote com bined, and given us victory. Can we repair the mischief? We can. Four fifths of the democracy who stayed at home last Tuesday can be induced to vote for Greeley in November. Those who will absolutely refuse to go to the polls will be counterbalanced in nnmber by those Republicans who went against us last Tuesday, but will vote for Gree ley. We have only to poll our usual Democratic vote to snatch from defeat a glorious victory. The Liberals stretch forth their banns. Shall we refuse to take it? The prostrate and plundered South cries out for help. Shall we be deaf to their appeal? By Greeley's elec tion we can restore prosperity and good government to the South, kind feeling to tne now nostiie sections, nonesty anu honor to the civil service, respect for the Constitution and laws to the national administration. Could we do more with a Democrat as President? Could he ex pect that co-operation in congress which Mr. Greeley would command ?

PISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. PKOCLAMATION BY THE PRESIDENT'. Washinctqn, Oct. 11. Ifg the President of the United States of America A proclamation ; Whereas, The revolution of another year has again brought the time when it is usual to look back upon the past and publicly thank the Almighty for his mercies and blessings ; and Whereas, If any one people has more occasion than another for such thank fulness, it is the citizens of the United states, whose government Is their crea ture, subject to their behest; who have reserved to themselves ample civil and religious freedom and equality before the law; who, during the last twelve months, have enjoyed exemption from any grevious or general calamity, and to whom prosperity, in agriculture, niimu factures and commerce, has been vouch safed : Therefore, By these considerations, I recommend that on Thursday, the twenty-eighth day of November, next, tile people meet in their respective places of worsnip, and tnere make their acknowl edgments to God fqr hjs kindness and bounty. In witness whereof, I hereunto set my hand, and cause the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Signed U. S. Grant. By the President: Hamilton Fish, .Secretary of State. The Secretary of State received by special messenger an official copy of the decision of the award of thu Geneva Arbitrators, handsomely engraved, on parchment, bound, with the signatures of the Arbitrators. The document was enclosed in a neat wooden case, highly polished. The Secretary has presented it to President Grant. It was afterward taken to the Department to be deposited in the archives. Colonel Bobb, of Georgia, and Mr. Savage, of California, two of the Com missioners appointed by the President to take testimony relative to tne jepre dations on the Kio Graude. having re turned to Washington, called on Presi dent Grant, aud had a long interview with him. The Presidenfwas much in terested in the narrative of the gentle men, who will prepare a report for trans mission to Congress. The incursions by armed Mexican bands into Texas have heen numerous, and have continued there since I860. They have since that time driven cattle, said to be worth sev eral millions of dollars, from Texas across the river into Mexico, where their plunder was sold to soldiers and citizens, i General Cartina, who is not at present iu , active serviee, but on waiting orders, is represented to ue one of the- most active instigators of the Incursions, by which he largely profits. Texans, while en deavoring to drive away the thieves, are sometimes killed by the superior num ber of the Mexican bands, while occa sionally the latter suffer in like manner. Owing" to the frequent incursions, the border continues in a s;tate of excite ment. There is only one company of eavalry on the frontier, which is of little- use considering the distance which requires to be guarded, it being eight hundred miles from the mouth of the Rio Grande to the extreme American settlement. The infantry are located at long intervals. The distance is nearly three hundred miles from Fort Brown to Ringgold Barracks, with only one camp intervening. Some of the sufferers by the Mexican raid traveled two hundred miles to give their testimony, and ex press their gratification that preliminary measures have been taken, not only to protect, but to indemnify them for losses. General McCook, commanding on the Rio Grande, corroborates the statements of witnesses as to the boldness with which the raids were made, and testified as to his inability, with an insufficient force, to give the required protection. There is reason to believe that the President, in submitting the report of the Commissioners to Congress, will ac company it with a recommendation that prompt measures be taken to protect our citizens on the border in their lives and property. The announcement of the death of Mr. Seward is received with regret in all quarters. The State Department build ing was, as a mark of respect to his memory, draped in mourning. The recent decision rendered by the Mixed Commission on British and Amer ican claims on demurrers of the United States as to non-appeal iu ship cases against the United States, is as follows : As there may be circumstances which may make it the duty of the Commission ers to consider some of the cases in which there ha3 been no appeal, demurrers in these cases will be disallowed, but the Commissioners wish it to be known that they will not allow any such claim in which the fact ot not appealing is not satisfactorily accounted for, and it is de sired that Her Brittanic Majesty's agent or counsel should state in writing, as soon as may be, in each case, the reasons relied upon, it any, to excuse a failure to appeal. since the adjournment of Congress, the Government printing office has been finishing the printing ordered during the late session. This amounts to seven hun dred and fiftythousand octavo and quarto volumes, varying irom three hundred to six hundred pages each.

Walker, Commissioner ot Indian Ailairs, and a large party of Indians representing the Kiowas, Comanches, Apaches, and other tribes of the western part of the Indian Territory, who have so ( long made Kansas, Texas, and New Mexico their raiding grounds. Tne Commis sioner, after advising them to cultivate the soil, raise stock, send their ehiluren to school. &c, told them plainly that the Government had determined to put a stop once for all to the murder aud steal ing which have of late become so com mon, and that Indians inclined to be un friendly and insubordinate would be dealt with summarily. Finally, the In dians were informed that, besides this general address, business witli each tribe would be taken up in detail, separ ately, day after day until completed.

Advices from Tucson, Arizona, Oct. 8. say that on Sep. :0 the Apaches attacked Hughes' Ranch, near Crittenden, killed the Mexicans and stole the animals. Lieutenant Hall and fifteen of the Fifth Cavalry went to the ranch, where Mrs. Gaberu and children were besieged, aud found the Indians one hundred strong, with breach-loading guns. They retired to the mountains and defied the troops. A sergeant with live men, were dis patched to warn the farmers of the So noLi Valley of their danger. Near Hughes' ranch the Iudians killed Serg't George Stewart, Corporal William Na tion, and privates Edward Can- and John Walsh. An order was received by Lieutenant Hall from General Howard not to lire on the Indians in the moun tains, unless engaged in actual outrages.

Mayor Medill has issued a proclama tion to the police authorities di recti ug them to enforce the law forbidding the sale of intoxicating liquors on Sunday. J-he union bricklayers are still on a strike, and for ten hours pay for eight hours work, and some ot them evince a disposition to interfere with non-union men who still work on the old basis. Monday afternoon a gang of 125 strikers went to McCormic s factory, in course of construction in the southern part of the city with the intention of driving oft' the workmen. They sent a committee to request the workmen to stop work and ou the refusal of the contractor to allow them to enter the premises threatened violence. The police wore called on to protect the workmen, and so far no fur ther disturbance has occurred, the em ployers are firm in existing the demands of the strikers. The ladies' car on an express train on the Paducah and Elizabethtown Rail rood jumped the track last night, eight miles from .Paducah, and went down a forty feet embankment, landing bottom upwards and demolishing it. The car contained about twenty passengers, nearly all of whom were more or less injuied. Two were killed outright a little girl named Georgia Jordan, of Clarksville, and Feadefassi, a tobacco agent for the Italian government, lie was found standing on his feet, leaning against the car dead. The wounded are A. S. Harrington, Lucy Burnett, Mrs. Thornberry, Mrs. M. R. Cobb, M. Liv ingston, 31iss Matilda Ross, J.

Her cluld in her arms was unhurt. Mrs. Cobb, of Paducah, had her legs so badly fractured as to necessitate amputation. Her condition is critical. Much credit is due to the officers of the road and the citizens of Paducah, who were promptly on the spot with surgical aid, and did everything possible to alleviate the suf ferings of the wounded. NEW YORK. Hon. William H. Seward died at 5:15 P. M., Thursday last, at Auburn N. Y. . Mr. Seward, having taken cold and somewhat unwell for a day or two, was on the evening of Saturday the 5th, seized with a severe chill, and his phy sician was suuiuKMicd to him. He had been, during the summer, in his ordi nary good health, suffering only from the inconvenience of muscular palsy of his arms, and hud been engaged in preparing for the press his account of his recent journey around the world. The chill was that of ordinary tertian ague, accompanied by a harrassing ca tarrhal cough. It was followed by fever and delirium, whieh lasted until late in iu the night. On Sunday ha was up in the afternoon, took his dinner, and passed a confortable night on Monday. With the exception of his cough and ca tarrh, he was comfortable, and and dic tated as usual to his assistants in the completion of his book. He played whist Monday evening, but at 10 P. M., a slight chill eccurred, followed by de lirum and fever, with aggravated catar rhal disturbance of the chest, which lasted nearly all night. After midnight, Tuesday morning, after some sleep, he was again better and drove out iu the afternoon, but fever, delirum and rest lessness returned, with the cough, on Tuesday night. .On Wednesday he drove out for two hours and dictated to his amanuensis as usual, though harassed all day with a cough and catarrhal effu sion in the chest. Wednesday evening his cough abated for a while, and there seemed a promise of a good night.but fe ver, restlessness aud cough returned at bedtime. He was nearly sleepless un til five o'clock in the morning. At four in the morning, to relieve the tedium of lying sleepless, he had his son William read the New York Times to him of Wednesday morning. He slept after live pretty well, till eleven A, M., of Thurs day ,Jthough his fever kept up without any remission. At half past one he was seized with great difficulty of breathing, caused by a sudden catarrhal effusion into the lungs, commencing with the right lung, aud soon involving in the left also, which occasioned his death in about two hours, lie entertained no ap prehension but that he should recover from the attack of' catarrhal ague till last night anil this morning. 'While, at his age, and with the. condition of the muscular palsy from which he had suf feaed so long, the fact that the fever was increasing upon him, together with lhe catarrhal disturbance, led his physican to apprehend a fatal result in the course of a week or more, yet no immediate fear was felt. His dissolution was sud den and unexpected. Mr. Seward's in tellectual faculties were clear and vig orous to the last, save when disturbed by paroxysms of fever. Just after an effusion from his lungs Thursday, and thinking it would relieve his breathing, he was, at his own desire, placed on a loung and bolstered up, and moved from his adjoining bedroom into his study, where, in the midst of his books aud his literary and other papers, sur rounded by his relatives aud a few friends and all his devoted dependents, he breathed his last. For the last hour of his life, as the powers of nature were giving away, his condition become easy, and he spent the lime in allectionate leave takings of his relatives and depend ents, and finally sank quietly to his last rest as if going to sh'rp. Tweed said to a reporter, Thursday : "I have not been ten miles out of the city iu a year, except to Greenwich and New Canaan. 1 am not agoing to leave, and shall stay, perhaps, longer than some would like to have me."' District Attorney Garvin has received notice thatau application will Ik- made for a further postooneinent. of the trial of William M. Tweed, and the reason in timated is irregularity in the action of the Gra-id Jury that fou id the indict incut. If a postponement, is ordered, it is probable the t rial will not take place for several in onths. The increase, of the debt in the city iu eight- mouths, is $4,314,7!. The' iu c rouse is caused by tho isuo of sue via. bonds to raise money for school build ings, docks, &c. The National Democratic Committee lias issued an address to the people of United States,in which they rehearse the result of the recent election, and urge the performance of energetic and cour ageous measures in tho prosecution of the campaign. It is now thought that Havemeyer will be nominated for the Mayoralty by the Committee of Seventy, and Com missioner Geo. W. Van Nest, Tweed's successor, by the Republicans. This will make four candidates in the field for Mayor, the other nominees being Lawrence and t )"Brien. Charles O'Hara, sentenced to the State prison for ten years for burglary and larceny, Edward Retwan, senten ced for live years for grand hireeny,and Francis Northhouse, sentenced for three years for burglary, escaped from the officer having then in charge, while being removed form rhe railroad car, at five o'clock Wednesday morning. The three three prisoners had been shackled together and placed in a cell over night, where they managed to loosen the rivets of their shackle. When the party ar rived in the street, O'Hara complained that his shackles hurt him, and while the officers were stooping to relieve them, the prisoners threw off their irons and escaped. Spain. A dispatch from Ferroy of the 14th, says the insurrectionists made two at tacks on the frigate Asturins, yesterday, but were repulsed. Three, govermenr. vessels are blockading the entrance to the harbor of Ferrol. It is impossible for any of the vessels captured by the rebels to get ont. Anarchy, prevails in the insurgent band. It is believed that the insurrection will be overthrown by the first attack of thegovernment troops. Marshal Bregna, Captain General of the Province ot Corrunna, has arrived at Ferrol, with a force of goverment troops, l lie reneis continue to concen trate, nt the arsenal. Fifteen hundred In surrectionists who left Ferrol for Jnbas were intercepted by Marshal Breguo, and retreated to the town. France, Prince. Napoleon and Princess Clothil- de, who were in Paris, have received notice to leave France. The Prince re plied to the agent of the Government, who brought the summons, by refusing to quit his native land, insisting on his rights as a citizen and declaring; he would yield only to force, and the Prin cess answered that she would only leave Frauee between two gens d' amies. Thiers, in the course of his remarks before the Parliament Commission of the Assembly, used the following words: "Europe has rendered us justice at Ber lin; our army is recovering, ar.d our credit is excellent." These assurances were received with cheers by the mem bers ot the Commission. M. Rouher has made an appeal to the Government Commission ot the Assem bly iu behalf of' Prince Napoleon. He proposes to prosecute the Minister of the interior for expelling him from France without authority of law. The Princes aud Princess have left Geneva for Milan OGLAXO. Ministei Schenck is about to visit Italy, accompanieu ny nis uauguters.to be awav two months. Benjamin Eoran, Secre tary ot Legation, will act as cnarged' af fairs during his absence. A special from Berlin to the Telearanh says it is believed that, the decision of the Emperor on the San Juan boundary question will be favorable to the United states. The Times' obituary of Seward says he was a nseful statesman, an eminent American, and gaye proof of his deeds of uniform philanthrophy and a love of liistice. Bentinck, member of Parliament, in a public speech, announced the settlement ot the Alabama question a dishonor to England. It was absurd that a rule should be made, and held to bind Eng land to responsibility for an set commit ted long before the rule had anv exis tence, England deserved the scorn of the whole world and would cease to hold her position among the nations. London journal.-, foresee in Tuesday's election the re-election of President Grant in November.

A LIVE PAPER FOR LIVE PEOPLE, Published every Saturday at No. 114 Main St.. Painesville. Ohio. Iiv W. C. I'HAHIBEIH 4c SO, Proprietors Terms $200 per year. THE Journal, with the number tor Jnlv 13, enters upon its Second Volume with the highest prospects for the future. Throughout the year just past it has endeavored tofuCU, and has,rolfiledthe promises contained in Its original prospectus, and its aim to present an elegant miscellany of pure and pleasant literature has been so far carried ont as was possible in view of the many obstacles 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 Beveral departments. No pains or expense have ever been spared to make the Journal the lest 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. New attractions are constantly being prepared tor its readers and none will dispute the asser tion that its enterprise and energy have already won for it a foremost place in the ranks of co- temporaneous publications. By its influence the newspapers of this seetion have been driven into exnrtion never before made and while the pa pers here are now a pride to every citizen it ought not to he forgotten that their marked im provement has been made within the year last past or in other words since the establishment of the Journal. SPECIAL REASONS Which cannot fail to commend the Journal to every class of the reading public. First. Because it is the lmrsrest paper ever published in this county, and because it fur nishes each week nearly three columns snore reading than aJl tne other pa. pen combined. Second. Because it has a larger list of contributors than any other paper in Northern Ohio. Third. Because it is in ever-sense of the word, "a live paper," "for live people." Fourth. Because it is, in the broadest sense, fair and independent upon all subjects, wheth er Social, Beligious or Political : Fifth. Because its articles are all to the point and its columns are not filled with long and prosy essays devoid of all interest. 8ixth. Because it gathers the news Irani all quarters of the world, by telegraph aud through its own special correspondents and re porters, and condenses it into such brief shape as to 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-1 ducts, of home and foreign markets are always reliable. Eighth.
