OTTAWA FHEE THADER ; SATCKDAY, JULY 8, 1876.
From Europe-. Turkey. X The withdrawal of the Andrussy note seals the decision of 1U0 European powers not to in terfere in the war between Turkey an J her Eu ropean provinces. Scrvia, though in her quasi-iniiependence of Turkey having few of the grievances against the porte that have Lome down so heavily on Herzegovina, Bos nia, anil other provinces, yet entertains a strong hankering to annex Bosnia, and there fore regards the rebellion as her opportunity to accomplish her traditional aims. Prince IMilitn, of Servla, thus leads off in the war. A3 early as the 24th ult. we find him massing Lis armies on the border, and on the 20th he proceeded to the border in person to head the army. His army consists ot at least 80,000 ruen, ot wnoin ueu. icunuocu lummmius about 20,030, Gen. Zach 30,000, and Gen Aliimpitz ao,UUU. ine nnsi account wo nave of any part ot the army crossing the border is at Saitschar on the northeastern frontier, July 2d. Here a sharp engagement took place, in which Turkish accounts say Osman Pasha, the Turkish commander, gained the advantage over Tehernaycll', while the Servi ans claim the victory on their side. At all events, on the 4th the Servians crossed the river Driua, and again engaged the Turks at Bel ina, where another victory is claimed on both sides, though the "weight of evidence' is that the Servian Gen. Oliinpics was badly punished. Contradictoiy reports of numer ous minor engagements are given, but thus far there has been no great or decisive battle. Great ISrltaiu. The Irish riCeteam will sail for New York August 21-i. At Glasgow, on Monday, the mill owners, owing to the unprecedented depression, gave notice of a 10 per cent, reduction in wages. In the house of commons, on the 12th, .Smyth's bill closing Irish public houses on Sunday was passed to a second reading with out discussion. The government assents to the bill. On the same day, in reply to an inquiry ot Mr. Funster, Disraeli said that the govern ment Lad received nothing about the Bulga rian outrages, except what had already tran spired. Mr. Forster, under a motion for ad journment, attacked the government. He said he believed the reports were true, and it was desirable that the country should know the government's policy. Messrs. Ashby, Mundella, Anderson and Watkins supported Mr. Forster's position Disraeli said : "I do not deny there have been atrocities committed, but I believe the report is exaggerated," France, In the chamber of deputies on Thursday Due Decazes, minister of foreign affairs, re plying to M. Louis Blanc In regard to eastern affairs, said the government wished that France might not bo involved in events abroad In suck a manner as could possibly Linder the restoration ot internal peace. France.must only interlere in a purely paci fic sense, and it is. our part to associate our telyes witli any efforts made to preserve an Understanding with the power?. Tills Uil-' derstanding absolutely eiists, and is founded on a bails we cannot but accept nitu satis faction; namely, on non-intervention. This circumstance tends to circumscribe the ton conflict to the great advantage of the whole world. France has no special Interest iu the question, mid therefore eo reason to take an initiative. The honor and Interests of France have nerer been for moment compromised. The minister statement was loudly ap plauded. OoV. McClure of Pennsylvania, a Liberal and Independent Republican, does not pro pose to follow Carl Schurz into the bowels of the whiskey ring if we may judge by the lollowing extract from a communication to the Philadelphia Times: "For once the Democracy have given the country a leader who is himself the embodi ment of the issues of the contest. He Is no expedient no inoffensive nobody to drivel through a contest without offence. He comes before the American people just when there is a famine of manly leadership and a univer sal feast of unsavory littleness. He will be opposed by some who believe more in the De mocracy of the past than in the grandeur of a national reeeneratinn ; but unless the audible w hispers of Republican discontent are utter ly meaningless, each setting sun will rise again on Gov. Tilden strengthened in the trust of the people. Such is the teaching of to-day, and there must be a reactionary wave stronger even than that of August, 182, if he shall not be the Centennial president of peace." Lewis Steward, the Decatur nominee for Governor, besides being a man 6f decided talent and business capacity, is whole souled and generous, especially towards children. Big circuses and manageries seldom visit so small a place as Piano, where he lives, but whenever one visits Aurora, it has been his practice, for the last four or five years, to gather up all the children of Piano and take them to the show. Thus a late Aurora paper says: Three wagon loads of Lew Steward s friends, two of boys and ono ot jrirls, went through town on Monday bound for the Au rora circus. The Piano children will re member Lew. lonr years to come. He has sent them to nearly every circus that has been in Aurora for the past five years. Blaine has resigned his seat In congress and accepted the appointment from the Gov. ernor of Maine of a seut in the I". S. Senate to fill out the unexpired term of Mr. Morrill, the successor of Bristow as secretary of the treasury. Blaine's health is improving so slowly, however, that he is not expected to re-appear at Washington during the present sission of congress.

Petition the On Tuesday the Board of Supervisors took up the question of lnildinr a jail for the ureal county of La mid the result of their action does lioiior to the intelligence and humanity of the board In the wrong way! The discussion on the question was (in animated one, and wus par ticipated in by a number of the members. Messrs. Finley, of Bruce tow nship, and Net-ley and Lynch, of Ottawa, made speeches in favor of ereetinir a iail. while G. Wash. Armstrong and oiht-rs thought the jail good euougu, or, ut least, that this was not the proper time to build one. One supervUor, from the northern part of the county, showed his knowledge of county utl'uirs by objecting because " tho county U so much in debt!"" thousands of dollars in debt, you will find by Inquiring!" When the vote was taken only frt-o Ncely and Flulcy voted for the jail, ull the others, except those who were abst-ut or dodged, voting nay. A few weeks ago. It will be remembered, a mo tion for an injunction to restrain the detention of criminals in the jail was overruled by Judge Leiand. On Wednesday a new movement was made to abate the evil; that is, a petition for a mandamus to command the lioard of Supervis ors to provide forthwith a suitable jail. The pa pers were filed by E. F. Bull, and summons is sued and served on the Board of Supervisors, re turnable on Monday next. The petition shows that the present jail has been in use ns such for years, . . since It-Ill; that the provisions of Ch. 7o of the llevised Statutes of 'T4 are being violated by using this jail; that said La Salle county Is a very large and wealth county, containing a population of over i'iO.OOO people, and that the assessed valuation of property iu said comity, biibject to taxation for county purposes for the year 175, was ubout ns follows : Lands 5dvr.,.!15 Town Lots t'i,0?-,4.M Personal Property T,rii:i,oi; It.

Where fore tliu petitioners pny a writ of mandamus direett-d to the Board commanding them to do their duly at once. The petition is supplement ed by exhibit " A," a ciny of the indictment against the jail returned by the Grand Jury at the June term,l75. The hearing will be on next Monday before Judge Leiand, and is looked forward to with great interest, and should the Judge issue the writ, the subsequent proceedings ukij be still more interesting. . A SftbUril: We liiiVe heeti at Percttrii arid kliO'w all about it We might sn.y Mint a tHp to Serena is most en- joyed visiting it by proxy, or in anticipation, par ticularly With tho mercury up in the !K)'s. One fctej'a on the cars of the C, B. it. Railroad, In high glee; pushes up the window; then falls back on the luxurious cushions, and, half lulled to sleep by the gentle clatter of the wheels and the breeze over his forehead, dreams of cool drinks and other impossibilities as he rushes over "hill and dale," by "rocks and rills" and the lovely scenery that characterizes this route, till the brakt-man jells out "Serena ah!" His dreams have actually made him believe that ull is "sc. reue" but he soon gets over this foolishness when he finds himself baking in a eun hot as everything. Serena is a natural town, but one hardly feels jus-tided in raving over it as the "loveliest Village of the plain". Five trees, a luxurious growth of wevds und a lawn of black dirt, may be beauti ful, but tastes will differ. Rural cottages, the meadows, green fields, "And violets blue, And lady smocks, all silver white, And cuckoo buds of yellow hue," and o'l "Unit sort o' thing'' Is nice enough, cull, ed from Miss Mitford or Ike Marvel or N. P. Wil. lis, while swinging In a hammock in the shade and pulling the fragrant LaDora, but do you ncv. er let Charley Hupp swindle you Into going to Serena to see these things, if you want to see h'nn, that's all right, he' a tip-top boy, but don't believe in this "loveliest-village of-the pluin" business. It is generally cu-iomary to cuil such towns "risini' town," tiud we f uppose we have to do so iu this cu-e. How we can satisfy our conscience, wt' cannot say, unless it be in consideration of the town's capacity for raising a racket at kic bail on Sunday at which they are said to excel. Having seen no churchus in the place we reckon they take this meth'xl of duly observing the Sabbath. The attractive feature of the place is the wan ner of dress. These people come nearest the idea of pantaloons with arm holes for summer wear, which are almost universal ainbng the na tives. Boots and ahoes and stockings are not the most salable goods one can h A e in stock there, but one is sure to reap a rich harvest from a stock of straw hats, the bigger the holes the better no boy will buy a hat there unless the salesman ha worn or chewed a hole into the brim. There ate worse towns than Serena. Ju't now times are Lard, for the farmers who trade large ly then?, are at work. The prospects for a good trade later are good. The crops in the neighbor hood are good, while the corn look better than most we have seen south of this city. North of Serena the prospect are still better. The town has two fir-t rate general stores, Hupp huts', and Mason', a good hardware tore, and the ns;i! accessory tstablishmcnts of the village, while the inhabitant are genial and sociable, and excel lent people to go among.

Beach, of Dayton, made the following remarks on the subjec t of the assessment of personal property in this county: Mr. Cir.urtMAS: I have a few facts - id fig ures which I would like to present for ae con sideration of the committee on personal proper ty, relating to the assessment and eqiiniizatioii of that das of property. I learned, by being a member of that committee two years ago.and from what I have observed since, that there is great injustice done to some towns by the manner in which property is assessed, also by the commit tee In equalising by that assessment. To lllus. tnite the different manner of assessing In differ, ent towns, we will suppose that I, living iu the town of Dayton, have uu equal amount of prop erty to be assessed with the Chairman, Mr. Lew is, living iu the town of Full River. When the asfe'sor calls upon Mr. Lewis he commences the list by asking 'how many horses have you' 'I have ten in all, six work aud four colts.' 'What quality are your work horses)' 'I have four good ones and two are old.' He calls the four itood ones 70 each, two at '-to each, two colts at and two at 25 each. He assesses cattle, hogs and all stock la the same maimer. He fob lows the list down to money and credits. ' Have you any money owing you, and how much)" ' I have $2,(NJO.' 'Any money iu bnuK or otherwise)-' 'I have SoOt).' lie puts it on the list. Ho fol lows the list down to all other property. ' How many bushels com)" 'Suppose I have 2,000 bushels.' Calls it :W cents a bushel. 'Any oth er grtiiu ' Have WO bushels oats.' Calls them 20 cents. After getting through the list he adds it up and it amounts to ..,00o, and goes through the town iu the same manner. The assessor in the town of Dayton comes to me and enquires, " how many hures hare you)1" " I have ten six work horses and four colts." Ho says, " I don't call usses colts, as I dou't consider them horses. What quality are your work hor ses)'' " Four good ones, two old ones." He says, " I will call them five horses at .f Ml each." Of cattle, he cuts down the number and makes an average of $20 eauh. Then coming down to mon eys audi credits, he fays, " have you any num. ey to put in )" I say, " you may put in $500." 1 le says, ' I take oil' 40 per cent, from money," and makes it s:iU0. Savs nothing about other prop erty. Adds up the list and makes it '2,0iHJ. He goes through the town iu the same way, and re turns his book to the County Clerk, und makes oath that he has made a full and correct list of all property In his tow n, and assessed it at a fair cash value. The committee take tho statement from the books of the average value of i ropertv of each kind in each town to equalize from. They find that in the town of Fall River horses, cattle, iV:c, do not come up to the general average and they will have to add 20 pur cunt, to that town, in creasing Mr. Lewis' property $.1,000 to $i 1,000. They lind that Dayton's horses and cattle rate above the average, so they reduce ns 10 per cent., making my 2,0W f 1,S(X. It may seem to the committee that there is not this dilierenee In the ilifl'ereiit towns, but ull I ask is to take the fig ures lrom the books, and take Into consideration the area, the apparent wealth, the number of acres of corn and other grains, Ac. I do not claim the committee can add to towns that have not returned their property, but I do claim that they cannot equalize and do justice without the property Is all assessed as the law requires. The Chairman and many of the members of this Hoard will remember 'that four years ago there was an extra session culled for the pur pose of devising some means to increase the as sessment. The property was assessed so low, and so much escaped taxation, there was not enough to levy a tux on for county purposes, us they were limited to a certain per cent. The as sessors were culled together at that time. T hey had mostly finished their assessment and refus ed to re-assess, so the Board agreed to borrow money for that year, and ut the next session passed the following preamble and resolution: Wiimrkas, Tt lr bt-llevrd by thin Hoard that creat ln)u. tlce reruUs to t lie Uvpayprii in tins Cjiinty by reason ol Hie non-compliance with ihe law requiring )MOierty to bens sesMJd at !r cn-h valur. Iherefoie, rMilmi, Tbat I hla Hoard itronRly recommrr.d th.it a sessora value property at a lalrcasli ratio, and the Hoard reserve tlie rlsht to order anew aKseMtnont lu any town wiiere the law has beep violated in ttila repcct. The result was that the next assessment of 1873 personal property amounted to $11, 1 HS4.524. The next year In 187-1 It amounted to $!i,r.r),'.i02. The number of horses In 17:1 was 2VOti; in li74 there was 2-1,130 1..V17 less than the yeur before, and a similar reduction Id other property. It has continued to decrease each j ear until we have about $4,000,000 of personal property this year. If this decrease continues, iu a year or two we will be lu the same situation again. If this decrease was proportionately ulike iu ull the towns there would not seem to be so much injustice, hut by looking at the abstract from the books, we find that the towns of Dim mlck, Serena and Northville have not returned u dollar for corn or grain of any klud, while our new town of Miller returns nearly fW.ooo lor that class of property. The town of Meriden docs not return anything for household furni ture. I am not acquainted in any of those towns but Serena, hut I know 1 have seen the largest crib6ofcoru in that town of any in the county. The people in the town of Dayton felt much aggrieved last year that they had to pay a tax on their grain to build a county house and other county und state expenses, while their neighbors across the road escaped that tax in part. If the same rule Is to be adopted this year, to class towns (lu equalizing) that have returned a part of their property with those that Lave returned it all, I shall be compelled to vote against ull appropriations asked for by this Board. Hotter nnil Ilotret. The great excitement of the city for the past two or three days has been the jail question, and the petition of Mr. Bull for a writ of mandamus, noticed in another place. One good effect thus far resulting from the petition is a must thorough ventilation of the subject, und u development of the Board's opinion ou the subject, which is de. cidedly curious. Many of them fay the county needs a court house us badly as u jail, thut both ought to be built together, aud to that they -cctii to Le opposed "on account of the hard times." A number of others, as well iufonin l of the inidi tion of the jail us the gentleman from a northern town was of the county's finances think it good enough, busing their opinion on the report of the jail committee, and the statement that prison ers can be kept therefor 11 cent- a il.iy. The Hourd is the maddest set of mi n in I'Veii coun ties In regard to the filing of the pet. tion. Short ly after it was tiled, a number of them rushed over to County Attorney Mayo's oflice to consult him, asked bis pi:ilo:i und which side he was un for or against them!
