Thu Russian Hoard at Customs has Just pub
lished au iatsrustmg paper on the export and
Import trade of the Empire during the Amt
four months of the present year, Hie statements
In which, remarks the Uo'm, are highly surpris
ing, as proving the undeniable and afflicting
fact' that the export of grain alone has decreased
at a Tory uncommon rate. Facts, continues
that journal, have been brought to tight
threatening in no sipail degree flic balance
of the budget, the' more so os at Hie
same time the Import of grain has remarkably
increased. As compared with the quantity ex
ported In the Ant four months of 1878, there
has been a diminution In tin* corresponding
period of the present year of about 30 per cent.
The export of wheat In particular has de
creased by 40 per cent, - that of barley bv 33,
and of oats by 34, the export of rye alone rising
by 15 per cent. The export of hempsccd
shows h diminution of more thin a half, oil
containing seeds falling still furthered, 'the ex
port of flax decreased by 17 per cent, wooden
products bv 40, wool by 55, rags by 50. raw
skins, fat, and grease, hy 80, and so on. Of the
articles chiefly exported, however, spirits have
shown a rcraarkablalucrcase by about 00 per
cent, with a slight Mnrtcncv In the same direc
tion os to cattle uml horses. As for Imports of
thirty-flvo articles, eight only show a decrease,
among which is coalUiy 65 per cent, and as to
the other twenty-seven articles, a more or less
remarkable Increaao Is recorded. Of cast-iron,
for example, two-an U-a-half times the quantity

Menus, July 2.—Owing to the dullness©! trade
and the general feeling of social and political
insecurity pcrvudiuiSall Hussian society, the In
dustrial Exhibition contemplated for next year
at Moscow has been tooslpoucU till 1881. That
great general depression does prevail through
out the Empire maybe gathered, among other
things, from an ofliclal report lately published
as to tlie freights brought to uml dis
patched from Bt. Petersburg by rail and
water in Uic course i f last April. Id compari
son with the some pi riod io 18TS this year's re
port shows a very c msldcrabto falling off, to
the extant, indeed of 43 per cent. Thus in
April, 1878, freights to the amount of £11,148,-
000 were brought to Bt. Petersburg, while this
your Hie figure wai only £0,388,C00. The
carriage of goods; has chiefly decreased
between Moscow f and Bt.' Petersburg,
0,010,000 pouds being the total consignments to
the latter place In April, 1878, 8,105.000 chose
for Die same month this year. The conveyance
of grain In particular was, by comparison, very
insignificant. In the course of the first four
months of 1878 nearir 83,000,000 pouds of goods
arrived at St. Petersburg from the Interior
provinces, while the .corresponding period this
year shows a decrease of more than 0,000,000
manor cov.esso on the zdi.u win.
London, Juno 28.— T0 the Editor of the Lon
don'Hmu: Your readers have no doubt ob
served that Sir Michael Hteks-Beacb, In bis an
swer to Mr. Richard, confirmed tho truth of a
statement which ! made la a recent letter to the
Timet, to the effect UmtUnfunzl audKkfsimanc,
two peace messengers from Cetcwayo, had been
improperly detained at Kranz-kop os prisoners
for a considerable'period.' With reference to a
later mission (~om the Zulu King, tbc Bishop of
Natal, writing to mo on May 24, says:
John Dunn Is understood to have corao back
from his Interview with the last peace messenger,
mid to have reported that the message is bona lido
and that Cclywdvo meins to have peace II possi
ble. Xam quite sure tbit an honorable ana sale
peace ml|{bt be made at once, but 1 am eqoaliy
sure that nothing will satisfy Sir Barlle Fro re, and,
therefore, also Lord Chelmsford, but the deposi
tion of Cotywoyo, which is what is meant
by “unconditional submission." If this Is
insisted on.' it is my- Arm belief that tho
war will go-on, or, rather.* will bo be
gun again, with further vast sacrifices of
nlood and treasure to I the English and horrible
slaughter of. tho' unfortunate Zulus. I strongly
suspect, moreover, that the campaign will be at
tended with more disasters, and I believe that tho
wisest thing which Lord Chelmsford's friends
could do would tro to got an order from the Gov
ernment' to bring tud war to a close with
out further fighllig, If Cctyuayo will
accept -any reasonable terms— e.g., some
such terms os' those', proposed by 'the
tipfctator—'fiz., the admission of a British agent
and the redaction of the Zulu army. But the fact
Is there Is no standing army In Zululand, - . in tho
sense in which the tcrm.ls understood In-Europe,
. nor Is there any fofce?^, - on»crlplfon, as U general
ly supposed. .
Remarkable as this last statement may ap
. peur,'it. Is,-nevertheless, quite true. Enlist
ment la Zululami Is perfectly voluntary. There
oru rnanv Zulus who have never offered them
selves for military service, and yet the King bus
not subjected them to any punishment or disa
bility, The Bishop adds:
I fully believe that If I wore allowed to visit
Cctywuyo (which is out of tho question while Sir
Unrtlo Frero and Lord Chelmsford are loft to do
what they like), I could bring him to consent (1) (o
receive on agent: (2) to buvu never more thaul.Utit)
armed men at his kraal, except with the agent’s
consent: (it) to allow,ns far os ho Is concerned,bin
young men to marry, though tho last point might
perhaps ho left to the course of events, and. If en
forced, It would cisrlainly lead at once to as largo
an extension of the system of ukulobola (purchase
of girls with cuttle) as prevails now In Natal. As
Umbcltnt Is believed to be dcud, and two ut least
of t-lrnyo’s sons have been killed (Including, 1
think, one of the offenders), besides a number of
Slrayo’s people and, perhaps, U.OOO other Zulus,
(hose smaller matters raijot be dropped.
I sincerely hope that the Government will
employ the services ot the Bishop in the man
ner lie suggests. The Zulus Justly regard both
him and Bishop Sebreuder as friends to whom
they can absolutely iulrust their cause. lam,
sir, yours faithfully, F. W. Ciiksson.

A Committee on Finance was also appointed,
os follows: J. B. Morgan, of Scott, and R. 11.
Campbell, Clinton.
During the retirement of tho Committee on
Permanent Organization, several of the mem
bers were called upon for remarks, but declined,
probably preferring to reserve their lire till tho
work of tho Convention begun In earnest.
Tho Committee reported for permanent of
ficers: President, the Rev. J. C. Pinkham, of
Cedar; Vice-President, Ward B. Sherman, of
Scott; Secretary, tho Rev. George Elliott. Mr.
Pinkham briefly, upon taking the chair, acknowl

them, of relieving Uic people of tbc Slate from
the curse of strong drink. Hu took strong

Capt. Van Zandt, of bcott, then moved that
this Convention will some time during Ihe dar

debate followed, lasting over an hour and a
half, and somewhat demoralizing tbc whole
An omcndmont to postpone the same was
finally moved and carried] by 123 to 21, thus
showing that there were only forty-four dele
gates who were participants.
Capt. Van Zandt then moved that those par*
ticlpatlng In the action of this Convention ha
bound by Its action. This drew out further dis
cussion, the Rev. Mr. Elliott and Mr. Fidler
strongly opposing It, and in their remarks re
flecting rather harshly upon Gov. Gear and his
alleged alllllatlon with the whisky interests of
the State. They were replied to by Mr. Fusker
ot Benton, Mr. Collier of Cedar Rapids, and
others. The motion was finally lost,—ls to 80,
—when ttie Convention adjourned till 2 p. in.
At the afternoon session, a vote on the reso

quiring oil who take part In the Convention to
consider themselves bound to abide by Us ac

A resolution limiting tbe representation of
Cedar Repids to five was lost.
The Coinmtllcu on Resolutions reported a pro
amble eclting forth the evils of intemperance,
and resolving that these bo the basis ot tbo
political action of tbe party:
JUtolrtd, '/rsf—Thit we recognise the traffic In
Intoxicating liquors as the gre.t moral, financial,
Bt-cial, ami duliHchl evil of the present asvi Unit U
is occ of the worst relics of buruartsm; that it has
always been tbo moving cause of crime, and is,
therefore, subversive of our republican form of
government, and should bo overthrown.
Uccund—W'u believe that the prohibition of the
traffic of Intoxicating liquors Is the only sound lev
islativu theory upon wt icu this vexed question can
ho solved and the nation saved from banwrnmey
and demoralisation; therefore, wo Insist upon too
maintenance and cnfoiccment of our Prohibitory
Liquor law, and upon such amendments oy tho
next Legislature or luwu as will place ole, wine,
and beer under tbo same condemnation us other In
toxicating liquors.
V'Alrrf—Wo behove that In tho security of home
rests the security of tbo State; that woman la br
her very nature ibu acknowledged guardian of Hits
sacred shrine; that Intemperance is Its greatest
enemy: therefore we claim tnat the daughters of
this Common wealth, ns well ns her sons, bo allowed
to sav by their vote what laws should liu made for
the suppression of this evil, and what persons shall
execute the same.

public Interest affecting the perpetuity of our Gen
eral Government which oro now absorbing the
thought and action ol all our people, deem It inex
pedient and unwise to nominate a titato Prohibi
tory ticket at the present lima.
A long and spirited discussion followed the
offering of (lie substitute. When the vote was
colled, the wildest disorder prevailed, Score*of
men Jumped to their feet, questions of order
woru raised, and a perfect bedlam prevailed for
a time. Mrs. Maxwell made a most tolling
appeal to the Convention, begging them in
iho name of the women of lowa to not Injure
Du cause of tempfraaco by putting a third
ticket in the Held, nor by such intemperate ac

When the Convention reassembled, the Hon.
A. 11. Coflroth was made permanent Chairman,
and Lewis C. Cassidy, Chairman of the Com
mittee on Resolutions, presented the following
report, which was adopted:
Itftoired, F>r»t r Thaijwe, th« Democratic party
of Pennsylvania, In Convention assembled. renew
our vow* of fidelity to the fundamental principles
proclaimed ami practiced by the Illustrious men
who sellledour free Institutions and founded Ilia
Democratic oarly. to protect and preserve them.
Second—That the Just powers of the Federal
Union, the right of the States, and the liberties of
the people are vital parts of one harmonious sys
tem, and to save each part In its whole constltu
tlonal vigor to save the life of tlm natnm.
J/iird- That the Democratic party maintains, as
it over has maintained, that tno military arn, and
might to be, in all things snhonltnato to thoctvll
onihorlllcs. It denies, as u ever has dented, the
rlclit of the Federal Administration to keen on foot
at the general expense a standing ormr to invade
the Stoles fur political purposes without regard to
constttuitonal restrictions, control Iho people at
the polls, to protect and encourage fraudulent
counts of voles, or to Inaugurate candidates re
jected by the majority.
Fourth—' That right to free ballot lithe right pre
servative of all rights, the only means of peaceful
ly redressing grievances and reforming abuses.
The presence at the polls of a regular military
'force, and of a host of hireling nfllciaN claiming
power to arrest and Imprison citizens without war
rant or hearing, destroys all freedom of election*,
and upturns the very foundation of nelf.govern
inent. We call upon all good citizens to aid as In
preserving our Institutions from destruction by
these Imperial methods of aoporvlslng the right of
sudrago.Tind coercing the popular will In keeping
the rfJir to the ballot-box open and free, ns It was
to our fathers. In removing tho atmy to a safe dis
tance when the people assemble to express their
sovereign pleasure at Iho polls, and in securing
obedience to their will when legally expressed hr
their votes.
F-Jth— That nolherfnrd U. Hayes, having been
Disced In power against the Well-Known and legal*
It expressed will of the people, in tbo representa
tive of a contrary only, and his claims of the
right to surround the ballot-boxes with troops and
Depot; Marshals to Intimidate electors, and his
unprecedented nee of the veto to maintain his un
constitutional and despotic power, are an insult
and a menace to tho country.
tfix/A—That the Democratic Party, as of old.
favors tbo constitutional currency of gold ani
■liver, and o( paper convertible Into coin.
Strenth— That wo arc opposed to a system of
subsidies by the General Government, under which
during the period of Republican ascendency
political rings and corporations profited at tho
people’s expense, and to an* Appropriation of the
the public moneys or public credit tonnr other
object than tho nubile service. The reforms and
economies enforced br the Democratic party slnco
Its advent to power In ihe Lower House of Con
gress have saved the people many millions of del
lors, and we believe tbsl a like result would fol
low its restoration to power Id thcbtaioof Penn
Abi/ifA—That the Democratic party being tho
natural friend of tbo workingmen, and having
throughout its history stood between him and all
oppression*, renews Its expression of sympathy for
honest labor, and Its promlifo of protection to Its
.V.nfA—That we look with alarm and apprehen
sion of the pretensions of the great transportation
companies to bo aonve tho fnndamcntoi law of this
Commonwealth, which governs all else within our
borders, and until tnoy accept tho constitutional
amendments oilfiTU in good faith they should re
main objects of the utmost vigilance amt Jealousy
by both the'Legislature and tho people.
Teuth-~ That the recent attempt, under the per
sonal direction of tho ruling Kt-publlcan leaders, to
debauch the Legislature by wholesale bribery and
corruption, amt take from tho Commonwealth
84.uun.CQu fur which its liability had uover - beep
fliCbftalned, is a fresh.and olnrmli.g- evidence nl
tho aggressiveness of corporate power in collusion
with political rings, and should recojye the signal
condemnation of die people ut the polls,
KlettuUi— Thai tbo present condition of the
State Treasury, a bankrupt general fund, and even
the schools and chanties unable to got money ions
since appropriated to their support, Is a sufficient
illustration of tbe reckless financial mismanage
ment or Hie Republican party.
D. O. Durr, of Allegheny, was Dominated
State Treasurer by ocdnumtlnn.
A resolution was adopted empowering tho
candidate for State Treasurer nnd President of
the Convention to name the Chairman of thd

That In P. O. Barr, this day nominated for State

urer entitled to the confidence of ibe people; one
who. It elected, wiil k»*Po the punlic moneys safe*

Washington, I). C„ July 10.—A curious
story comes from Florida by way of New York.
It Is to the effect (hat a scheme Is being devised
to call a special session of tliu Florida Legislature
to change the law providing for the choice of
Presidential Electors in that State. In thu pres
ent Legislature there Is a Democratic majority
of 14 op Joint ballot. Should the Electors by
chosen by the present Legislature lu November,
there would he no doubt as to their action,
while to wait for thu now Legislature Is to
take a great chance. Thu programme Is reported
to have been suggested by Montgomery Rlulr
to Gov. Drew, of Florida, mid thu pretext
for calling the Legislature together Is to submit
to It some Information relative to the construc
tion of a ship-canal across Florida. Montgom
ery Dlulr, according to this authority, who may
bo a romancer, Is reported to have said
In substance, to Gov. Drew, who
said that ho could nob call the Legisla
ture together for such a purpose as that:
Of course you can't, out you shall be fur
nished with a pretext, and the purpose of an
extra session must be distinctly stated in your
proclamation convening thu Legislature. When
thu Legislature assembles, it Is Independent of
you, m>4 you ore not responsible for its action.
Call the Legislature together for the purpose of
gra ntlnc a charter for the construction of a ship
canal across Florida, and then if It passes an act
cha nglug the mode of choosing thu Presidential
Electors (t will bu of their own volition.”
“I see jour point,” chimes In the Governor,
anxious to beof service to his party, “but I
don’t kuow anything abopt this proposed canal,
ami, If culled on for information, could not fur
nish lu”
“Thotdifllculty is easily overcome,” save Mr.
Blair, as smilingly as ho knows how. “ Return
to Florida ami some French gngluccrs shall fol
low you for tho purpose of making a recon*
nolsiuco of thu proposed route. Have tho
project well Advertised lu your local papers.
All tho Information you desire shall bo fur
nished vou, imd you will bo enabled to construct
a very plausible message when the Legislature
convenes in pursuance of your proclamation.”
Thus posted in regard to bis duty to Mr. Tll
den, Gov. Drew returns home, the French en
'gmeers have appeared on the scene, and ore now
ploying! their part In the grand lorcc.

WssniNOTOH, D. C., July 10.—Tim editorial
In the Kingatreo .Star, stating that the colored
Republican, Bwslli, if ho should return to
Williamsburg County, Sorth Carolina, he
would do so at bis peril, lias excited alarm
among the Northern Democratic politicians.
The first fruits of this alarm are seen In an
editorial In the Charleston Newt and Courier,
a Democratic paper, which once defended
Gov. Chamberlain from tbe attacks of the
Northern Democracy upon him. The Newt
and Courier, however, in commanding the
Klngstrce Star to bait, makes an admission
which is as extraordinary as tbe original arti
cle la the Klngilrco paper. That admission Is
tluit Um bulldozing outrages which the Republic
ans have always Insisted marked the elections
of 1870 and 1678, by means of which the Dem
ocracy have obtained tho control of
4 ■
the State, did la fact exist. The
iV«* and Courier says: “We cannot bbllcva
that the Rlngstrce Star U serious when It says
that It Is the doty of the Executive Committee
of the Democratic party to warn Swells that If
he Intends to return to Williamsburg County to
take up Uls permanent residence bo will do so
at his oersonal peril. The Democratic party
cannot countenance-such a. procedure. It Is
the fear that Southern Democrats acquiesce In
such propositions that mattes It so 'dllucult for
the Democratic party to regain public conll
dence. Things were done In the canvass of 187(1
and 1878 that cannot and must not be done
again. It was a supreme necessity. The neces
ally no longer exists. The Kingstree Star bas
taken an untenable position. Its threats are al
ready echoing nml re-echoing In the North.
This will not improve the prospects of the na
tional Democracy. What c< itncs so near borne
Is the fact that bulldozing of any sort harts us
right hero In South Carolina.*'

roneous. Mr. Ilubbcll, Chairman of the Repub
