The reduction of the public debt dur
ing June was 20.203.772,04. Since March
1, 1870, the debt has decreased 51,909,877,
43. In four months 52,000,000. A year's
work at the same rate will show a reduc
tion of 156,000,000. This is doing the
work the people elected Gen. Grant to
do. The figures for the month just past
are much in excess of those of any pre
ceding month. They show two things,
at least First that the administration is
working with a will to redeem its pledge.
Second, that the reduction already made
is helping, by cutting off the interest, to
increase the monthly decrease. Not a
month has passed without a reduction
being made of the debt There is some
thing in honesty in high places.
The week closing July 23, was one of

From the hotels and cottages of New

Journal. There is an awful preponder
ance of women and children at all of
these resorts, and the drawing-rooms
look like those of a Mormon elder,
Governor Hayes has received the
resignation of General B. F. Potts, State
Senator from the Twenty-first Senatori
al district, composed of the counties of
Carroll and Stark, he having received
the appointment of Governor of Mon
tana; and of James R. Hubble, Senator
from the Sixteenth Senatorial district
composed of the counties of Delaware
and Licking, he having received the
Democratic nomination for Congress in
the eighth District Writs will be issued
for a special election to fill the vacancies,
on the second Tuesday of October. It is
said that Popplcton, of Delaware, will
be the Democratic candidate for Hub
bell's successor in the Senate. Potts
was a Republican Senator, and Hubbell
Democratic Pott's majority in 18C9 was
437. Hubbell's was 647. The election in
October will probably not make any
change in the political character of the
Senate by those who may be chosen to
fill the vacancies.

Supreme Judgeship.
Judge Brinkerhoff having declined a
nomination, the friends of Milton L.
Clark, of this city, have prevailed upon
him to allow his name to be presented
to the Republican convention for the
nomination for Supreme Judge, and
from Mr. Clark's great legal experience
esd learning, his studious habits and
well known ability and integrity, the
movement seems one eminently proper
to be made. He was admitted to the
bar in 1844, and at once took a promi
nent position in his profession. He was
elected Prosecuting Attorney in 1S45 and
re-elected in 1847, during which term of
service it is said he never lost an indict
ment and seldom failed to convict when
convictions were proper, notwithstand
ing he was yet young and often brought
in opposition to the best and ablest legal
talent in the State. In 1849 he was
elected to the Legislature, where he took
rank as an able lawyer and as an indus
trious and influential member of that
body. Returning from the Legislature,
he applied himself with untiring indus
try to the arduous duties of his profes
sion, building up s lucrative practice in
this and adjoining counties, and by bis
strict attention to business, integrity and
ability, commanding the confidence and
respect of all who knew him.
Originally a Whig, upon the disrup
tion of that party, Mr. Clark identi
fied himself with the Republican party,
to which he has ever since faithfully
adhered. He was on the stump in the
Fremont campaign, and in most of the
Congressional, Gubernatorial and Presi
dential campaigns since then. In 1S00
he was a delegate from this then the
Tenth District to the Chicago conven
tion, in whieh, with marked ability
and effect he espoused and urged the
claims of the lamented Lincoln. He
took an active part in the ensuing con
test and his speeches were characterized
as among the ablest of the campaign.
Mr. Clark has frequently been solicited
to be-a candidate for nomination for dif
ferent positions, but uniformly refused
until he was nominated three years ago
for the Senate, which, in view of the
importance of the campaign, ho con
sented to accept and thereafter can
vassed tbe entire district Mr. Clark
having been a distinguished member of
the bar in Southern Ohio for more than
twenty-five years, and being one of the
best lawyers in the State, having in an
extensive practice before the Supreme
Court been concerned in settling the
laws of the State upon some of its most
important subjects to the people, and
being possessed of those other qualities
of ability, learning, industry and endur
ance, and withal tbe iaculty of due
analysis and discrimination, so essen
tial to the complete jurist we believe
that his nomination and election would
reflect honor to the judiciary and the

Berlin, July 20. Tho Reic-hrath, or
North German Parliament met yes
terday afternoon. The Grand Duke
of Mecklenberg-Schwerin was chosen
President without cheering, when Count
Von Bismarck announced the declara
tion of war by France. The King then
opened the session with a speech, which
was received with the wildest enthusi
asm. He said Prussia had no interest
in the selection of the Prince of Hohen
zollern for tbe Spanish throne, except
that it might bring peace to a friendly
people. It bad, nevertheless, furnished
the Emperor of the French with the
pretext of war, unknown to diplomacy,
and scorning peace, he had indulged in
language to Gormany which could only
have been prompted by a miscalculation
of their strength. Germany was power
ful enough to resent such language and
repel such insolence. lie said so in all
reverence, knowing that the result was
in God's hands. He had fully weighed
tho responsibility which rests on the
man who drives into war and havoc two
great and tranquil nations. He yearned
for peace and the enjoyment of the
common blessings of Christian civiliza
tion and prosperity, and for contests
more salutary than those of blood,
Thoso who rule France had shrewdly
studied tbe methods of hitting the sensi
tive pride of a great neighbor nation,
and to promote selfish interests have
misguided it "Then," concluded the
King, "as our fathers before us have
done, let us fight for liberty and our
rights against the wrongs inflicted by a
foreign conqueror, and as He was with
our fathers, so God will bo with us in
a struggle without which Europe can
never enjoy lasting peace."
In the North German Parliament, after

London, July 23. The Times sharply
criticises the language used by the

to mitigate the war, therefore Austria
will preserve an attitude of entire neu

The European Press on the War.
The comparative quiet that had settled
down upon tho press of the Old World
after the decision of the plcbiscilnm was
simultaneously and most noisily broken
by the sudden rovealmont of the Ger
man candidature for the Spanish throne;
and it is a matter of much curiosity to
observe the tone of tbe various national
journals, of every different shade of po
litical opinion, as presented to us by our
latest foreign mails. The English papers.
almost without exception, deprecated
sometimes in very pungent terms what
thevcalled the rashness and self-will of
the French government, and praised the
ouiet dignity of tho Prussian King. The
Timor, however, when Prince Leopold
of Ilohenzollern popped np from the
diplomatic juggling board like a jack-f-tho-box,
expressed the hope that "the
good sense of the Prince and of the Prus
sian reigning family would withdraw
him from a position that could only lead
to present confusion and ultimate de
feat" The Pall Mall Gazette sees any
thing but a promising prospect in the
present attitude of France. "If Napoleon
III. determines to fight Prussia this
Autumn," it says, "it will not be because
he himself wishes it, but because he dare
not stand the risk of declining to do so,
TJie prestige of the empire has already
had more shocks than it can well sustain
and it must not give such a handle to its
enemies as would be afforded by the
spectacle of a Prussian prince on the
throne of Spain." The Globe speaks
slightingly of the skill of Prim in mak
ing this nomination, and says that the
Spanish nation must begin to see how
dangerous it is to have its destinies
placed in the hands of a man who may be
brave and ardent but who is not dis
tinguished for caution or common sense.
The Telegraphxery distinctly recognizes
the menace to France involved in the
German candidature, and says: "Imme
diate humiliation, future peril that is
what Prince Leopold's success will really
signify to France."
The French prets on the first intima
tion of Leopold's name burst into full
cry, all seeming to regard it as an omen
of disaster to French pre-eminence.
What, then, can and ought France to
do?" says the Sicclc, "Simply to demand
from Spain a pledgo of neutrality in the
eventual struggles of the Continent"
The Journal de Paris states that Baron
Werther reminded tho French Minister
of State that when Prince Charles of
Ilohenzollern accepted the crown of
Roumania he did so without the consent
and almost without the knowledge of
King William, and that France had more
to do with the affair than Prussia. The
Constitutionnel prognosticates that the
European Powers will intervene to pre
vent Prussia from disturbing the equilib
rium of the Continent "the security of
France and the peace of the world."
England, it adds,had for a long time con
stituted itself the guardian of the latter.
Austria will not like to see her rival
strengthened by disguised aggrandize
ments, and Russia is too much engaged
in developing her social institutions and
her almost new-born commerce not to
fear anything that will sliake public cred
it in Europe and impede the course of
business. Italy, it thinks, must have
the same feelings in a still greater de
gree. The Journal Des Debats, referring to
to the Ilohenzollern negotiation, says,
"the moral of this history is that in times
like ours the most secret diplomacy is of
no avail if it has not tbe instinct to re
spond to the wants and to receive tho as
sent of public opinion." The Manorial
Diplomatique clearly and , boldly inti
mates what French policy continues to
be: "Franco has always been in the
habit of not allowing herself to be shut
in by the neighboring States. Such is
the policy which has been pursued since
the days of Francis L, by Henry IV.,
Richelieu, Louis XIV. and Napoleon I.
Tbe Independanee Beige details a conver
sation that took place between the French
Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Prus
sian representative. The former used
the word "catastrophe" when hinting (.he
results that would follow a persistence
on the part of Leopold in accepting the
Spanish Crown. Baron Werther then at
once asked him if tho true meaning of
that expression was a menace of war.
The French Minister of Justice, who
was standing near, broke in at once up
on the colloquy, emphatically remark
ing that it was, and that ho replied in
the name of tho Emperor and his gov
ernment The German press at home manifests
extreme surprise at the snddeness of the
crisis. Judging by the language of the
Koelnise Zeitung, the A llcgemeine Zeitung
the Xeue Prewssisehe Zeitung, tho Airu
Freie Presse, they at first supposed the
war threats of Franco to be directed
against Spain, and were one and all fa
vorable to the withdrawal of Leopold as
means of allaying excitement The
German editorials are temperate and
conciliatory in tho highest degree, and
vet are firm and confident in the wisdom 1
of King William and the strength of
Fatherland. Tho Dutch, Belgian and
Swiss papers are pacific and neutral, but
the Spanish and Italian alike are very
decided ly defiant of France. The Italian
comic journals caricature Napoleon un
mercifully, and hint without hesitation
at the impending downfall of his empire.
In fine, if the tone of the Continental pa
pers in general be any fair criterian, the
French claims to a control over the Span
ish situation have few defenders. AWr

Letter from Iowa.
O'BRIEN, IOWA, July 10, 1870.
Editor Chronicle : The rapidity
with whieh a county, just in advance of
a line of railroad that is being built,
settles up, is truly astonishing. This
county, for instance, had, two years ago,
but ten or twelve voters ; now, the cen-sus-takor
estimates the population at
eighteen hundred and this without be
ing on the direct line of the road. Coun
ties through which the railroads pass
have grown oven faster. In these almost
treeless couutics of northwestern Iowa,
anything except a half civilized life, at
any distance from the railroad, was
impossible ; but with one tlw- scarcity of
fuel and fencing becomes merely an
obstacle, not an insurmountable liarrier
to settlement
The certainty that the Dubuque A
Sioux City railroad would be completed
this season, started the tide of emigra
tion hitherward a year ago last spring
and still they come. Nearly every State
in the Union, and every European nation
is represented. Of the foreigners, per
haps the most numorous are the Nor
wegians, a half-fishing and half-farming
people, used to hardship and low rations
just the class of men to settle a prai
rie country, after they have served an
apprenticeship, as most of them have,
ith their longer settled countrymen in
tho older States. Hollanders, too, and
Swedes, nationalities but thinly repre
sented in Ohio, are numerous here. Of
the emigrants from this country, those
from the more western States, being
more accustomed to "roughing it" are
the most likely to be successful as
homes teadists.
The emigrants come in every style of
land vehicle in use since the days of
Noah, and drawn by every variety of
team horses, mules, oxen, horses and
oxen together, oxen yoked and oxen
harnessed like horses. The single men
usually come from the nearest railroad
station on foot The Yankee or Yorker,
with a large family, perhaps, buys a
team in the eastern part of the State and
drives out in a newly painted, white
covered wagon, with considerable style
at first, which diminishes as ho goes
westward, till, by tho time he has
reached government land, it is not visi-
blo to the naked eye the style isn't.
The more experienced westerner comes
with a few heavy yoke of oxen, well
knowing that the slowness of their gait
will be more than compensated by their
superiority to horses in slough3 and
moist places and by the cheapness of
their keeping, for they only need liberty
to graze a little on the always abundant
praire grass, while the horses must have
grain, difficult to get and expensive
when off the line of railroad.
Through this part of the State every
alternate section (a section is a square
mile of land) has been granted to rail
road companies. Some of the other sec
tions haye been granted to schools and
for other purposes, so that less than
half is open to settlement Of the land
within railroad limits, as most of it is,
eighty acres can be homesteaded. The
promise of eighty acres of as good land
as the west contains, with the certainty
of railroads and all the conveniences of
civilization in a few years, on the simple
condition of living on it for five years.
would seem enough to tempt any one
not owning a home of bis own, to come.
But the matter is scarcely as easy of exe
cution as it appears. In tho first place,
the land is usually preempted or home
steaded a dozen or two miles beyond tbe
settlements, and but few wish to go that
distance from neighbors, on the track
less prairie. The homestead and pre
emption claims are invalid unless the
party is living upon them ; but if the
actual settler goes on one, though he
may defeat tho title, the process will be
vexatious and expensive before he ac
quires the title himself. Speculators
take advantage of this and take out
numbers of preemptions in fictitious
names, which they readily sell to set
tiers, who would rather purchase what
they know to be their right than to
spend their timo and money litigating
for it And this traffic the speculators
"land sharks" they are called here
carry on under the very noses of the
officials of tho United States Land Office,
at Sioux City. The homestead and pre
emption acts, though good and righteous
in their way and dav, need cither a
revision or a different way of adminis
tering, if they protect the settler from
the self-stvled "land agents," who are
the curse of a new country.
Tho distance to supplies of every
kind, is the second great drawback to
homesteading. Nor is this remedied by
the approach of railroads, for however
fast the line may be built the settlement
will keep so far in advance of it Last
season most of the land in this vicinity
was preempted or homosteaded. The
nearest base of supplies was then fifty
miles distant, and supplies to a prairie
settler means more than to one in a tim
bered country, such as Trumbull county
was. The settler m the woods may sub
sist on a little corn and what game he
can kill, build a house of logs, and
clothe himself with skins and home
spun, so as to want for nothing, if he
docs not see another face, except those
of his family, for half a year. But with
the prairie settler the case is different
The lumber for his bouse must come
forty or fifty miles, and a trip to the sta
tion for lumber, last season, when the
wet weather had majo tho prairie roads
well nigh bottomless, meant a week's
hard work. The larger game, elk and
deer, were too shy and hard to approach,
on the open prairie, for any one not an
experienced hunter, to depend on for
meat and tho prairie chickens, though
plenty, and fine eating, require too
much time to kill enough of. The team
busy breaking the sod or next year's
crop must have feed, and so the supplies
were quite an item, both in time and
purse, when hauled half a hundred
miles over a road in places quite moist
around the edges. Sometimes the sup
ply of provendor would be extremely
low. "I and my team worked four
days with nothing to eat but bran," said
a homesteader. At another time the
satno man had for himself and family
but boiled wheat for three days, being
kept from town by a snow storm. The
men who, for the sake of having a home
for themselves and families, endure the
privations of the prairie settler, are not
the drones of society ; nor are they usu
ally the great or rich of this world, and
though at times you may notice the
sparkle of a diamond or the rustle of
silk, which indicate tlat the broken
merchant banker or speculator have
endeavored to leave and forget their for
mer haunts, while as homesteaders they
in an humble, but honest way, retrieve
their broken fortunes. While suoh oases
are met, the bulk of the homesteaders
are hard-handed men men who waste
no time complaining of better days, but
work while it is called the day, with a j
determination which no ordinary defeat
can bailie. There is enough to discour
age in every walk of lifo, but especially
has the prairie settler much to contend
with. The change of food, of water,
from living in a comfortable house to a
covored wagon ; exposure to cold and
rains often prove injurious to the health,
especially of children. Passing over
tho claim of a settler, tho other day, I
noticed two graves, which must havo
been newly made, as no rain had fallen
on tht-m. This settler, as ho told me,
was from northern Pennsylvania, and
had had, he seemed to think, more than
his sliaro of trouble. " First," he said,
" lost a fine marc, and by means of
her death failed to get in ten acres of
wheat; then my wife and oldest boy
died, and threo of tho children had been
very low, but were gaining." How I
deeply sympathized with the poor man
in his many afflictions. I conld not but
wonder at his speaking of the loss of his
mare before that of his wife. As a rule,
however, tho country is a healthy one,
the fresh prairie breezes being especially
invigorating to weak lungs.
But I must bring this rambling letter
to a close. I see I havo not writton
many things that I had intended to, and
have written some things that might
as woll been left unwritten. For these
faults, both of omission and commis
sion, as woll as giving, perhaps, too
gloomy a picture of homesteading, I
trust tho editor and the readers of his
paper will pardon. r. H.

Financial Affairs...The Effect of a
European War on American Business.
From the monthly circular issutsj by
tho banking house of Henry Clews &.
Co., No. 32 Wall street New York,
dated July 18, we take the following:
The outbreak of war between Franco
and Prussia has subjected financial af
fairs in this country to a severe strain.
Tho great resources and tho national
pride of tho contestants, together with
the possibility, not to say probability,
that other powers may be ultimately
drawn into the struggle, too plainly
indicate that the war may prove to be
much more costly and protracted than
that of ISoo' ; and the event lias, there
fore, produced a profound sensation in
Wall street circles. Tho experience of
tho effects of the war between Prussia
and Austria, when affairs in this coun
try were substantially in the same con
dition as now, educated Wall street to a
proper treatment of tho effects of these
European outbreaks; and to this fact,
perhaps, may bo attributed the fortu
nate circumstance that the derangements
growing out of this war have not been
so marked as those which attended tho
war of ISO!, although the foreign situa
tion is more threatening now than then
The first effect of a foreign war is felt
upon our exchanges. In the present
case, circumstances are. in some respects.
pecuniarily unfavorable for resisting the
effect From natural causes, the Euro
pean money markets have recently had

treme ease in the home money markets.
has rather favored the return ot securi
ties to this side than otherwise. As
usual at this season, the foreign ex
changes are against us. Our exports of
cotton and produce are every week be
coming lighter, from the working down
of stocks : and in addition t this ine-
oualitv on the trading account, we have
to remit to Europe, during the first half
of this month, several millions or semi
annual interest upon securities. A con
dition of things in Europe, therefore,
which is calculated to induce the calling
home of balances held here, a contrac
tion of and an extensive realizing upon
our securities held there was calculated
under these circumstances, to have
very marked effect upon the home bond
market and upon the price of gold. The
disturbance, however, has been less than
might have been expected. The price of
gold has advanced lrom ill; to iit, ana
bonds have declined three and three and
one-half per cent., while the decline of
sixty- t wos on tno London market lias
been eiu-lit and one-half per cent At
no period since the outbreak, has the
bond market hero been high enough to
admit of the return of any considerable
amount of bonds from Europe, tho rise
in the gold premium having almost con
stantly kept tne goiu vaiueoi tuosc secu
rities a fraction below that of London and
Frankfort If this relation between the
price of gold and the price of bonds be
maintained, no return of bonds is to bo
expected, in tne war crisis oi iti,
about $10,000,000 of Five-Twenties were
returned from Europe ; bnt scarcely had
the bonds begun to arrive here before a
reflux movement set in, which resulted
in our sending out within two or three
weeks, about $1.",000,OOU of bonds to.
Europe. With this knowledge of the
preference for United States securities
in Europe in periods of war, there is.
both abroad and at home, little disposi
tion to run into panic npon tnem ; ana
although it is possible that in the event
of the complications involving powers
at present neutral, prices might still fur-
there wouia DO an uiumaie recovery.
This conviction produ-es a compara
tively stead v feeling on the market hero,
and is an effectual stay against panic.
Although it would be a manifest error
to suppose that a country could be per
manently Dencnueu mrougu war ue-
tween other nations with which it was
in commercial intercourse, yet there are
some important advantages which this
country may bo expected to derive from
theniLslortuuosoi t,urope. iurex(xiru
of food products will realize higher
prices; our securities, being exempt
from tho iniluenees which atioct injuri
ously the credit of some of the loading
European governments will naturally
stand higher in the forei-m markets
fter the first Danickv effects of war;
and when the war has terminated, the
population of Europe being oppressea
with taxation and wearied of their lia
bility to be used as the tools of war, will
be more disposed to seek a home amid
iiio ne.icefal Dursuits of tlio United
States, swelling emigration and promot
ing the commercial development of this
country. But it must be admitted that
bevond those hopeful views, to which
our buoyant people naturally incline,
there are dangers upon which it is nec
essary to keep a close eye. It is not
impossible that the struggle may enlist
ultimately all the leading powers of
i-'nrnno including even llugland ; and
although we caimout regard that dan
ger as somewhat remote, yet it involves,
if realized, such an extent of devasta
tion, panic and common derangement,
that a certain degree of timidity and
caution must prerail until the danger is
past It is not to be overlooked that at
present we are running a trading account
with Europe which requires us to re
mit nearly ?100,000,0i)0 of securities per
annum in settlement oi an huvcqiu imi
anco. This condition of things requires
us not only to feel ure mat our ixmus
will not be sent home again, but also
to be satisfied that Kurope will continue
to increase its investments in our secu
rities. This is the weakest spot in our
armor; and with this view, it would not
be unfortunate were me war 10 emuar-
rass our importing operations.
With so much uncertainty respecting
the future course of affairs in Europe,
it ia imnossibla to form a satisfactory
opinion aa to uie tenuency oi prices oi
any class of securities. Itailroau stocks
are at present comparatively firm, upon
an idea that an advanco in Western pro
duce, the ample crops ami the active
demand for food products from Europe,
will induce a large trainc over uie roans ;
but, although there is some force in this
view, the dangers connected with the
war hang constantly ever uie niantoi
and resist any speculative advance.
Moreover, the period approaches when
the demand for money lor moving the
crops usually proves unfavorable to the
carrying of stocks on speculation. As
to the market for 'government bonds, it
can hardly be otherwise than unsettled,
whiln a condition of war prevails in
countries where nearly ?l,0u0,000,0o0 cf
the bonds are helU. Al ine same nine,
unless the struggle should assume Eu
ropean aimensions. there is reason to
hope that our securities will be better
sustained abroad than those of most
other countries ; for the United States
government being far removed from
Ue probabilities oi eiiiaiijsieiueu.
hnotilities. its credit Will stand high, as
compared with that of the governments
lavolveu in tne sirw?rgio ur uu;
In suite of this, however, it is to be
legarded as possible that the situation
na hennmA so serious as to produce a
universal distrust and indisposition to
invest in any kind of securities. It Is
too evident that all efforts at funding
Five-Twenties, under the Funding bill
just adopted, must be postponed in con-
sequenco oi the changed condition ol
affairs. At present, our Five-Twenty
bonds range about ten per cent below
par ir gold, which distinctly enough
means that a bond paying four, four and
one-half and five per cent, interest could
not be negotiated at anything near par
in gold. It is important to keep in mind
that the market will be steadily pro
tected against the effect of any return of
bonds from abroad, by the purchases of
the Treasury, notwithstanding tiie re
duction of taxation, it is quite likely
that the Treasury will have nearly
$1ip0,0u0,0U0 annual surplus for llie re
duction of the debt, so that there is little
danger of the home market being long
oversupplied through tho return of se
curities from abroad.
Ohio will bo allowed two additional
members of Congress nnder tho new
apportionment, to be elected at large
unless the State shall otherwise provide.
The Superintendent of the Census is re
quired to make a preliminary report of
tho enumeration so that the basis of rep
resentation mav be established as early
as tho '-'Jth of September in order that
the additional members may be elected
this fall.
