A happy new year to all our
friends—and enemies, too, if we
have any. In entering upon the
year 1877, desire to say that if
we are blessed with health and
strength and the degree of prosperi
ty that we have aright to expect,
we purpose to devote it all to mak
abetter paper in
every particular than it has been.
In order to do this, we shall strive
to be our own agent and get out oc
casionally (as often as we are able)
amongst the people, to ascertain
their wishes and opinions, and fit
ourself to cater for them more ac
During the past year our business,
like all other kinds, has suffered in
the general depression, yet we have
been more prosperous than we had
a right to expect. Our surplus in
come, however, over and above
current expenses, has been con
sumed in extraordinary outlays,
such as the purchase of the office,
establishing a home for our family,
&c, leaving us little or nothing to
pay for additional material where
with to improve the paper. Dur
ing the coming year, we purpose to
apply whatever we can spare from
current expenses to adding to our
office what is essential to the pub
lication of such a paper as we desire.
In order that our present readers
may have the benefit of this, we
must urge subscribers who are in
arrears to pay up as soon as they
possibly can. True, what each one
is only a small amount, but these owe
aggregate very considerably, and,
if we now had them all in hand, we
should have an ample supply of
means to make all the improve
ments to our office material that is
needed now, or will be required for
a year or two to come. In keeping
back these small sums, those who
do so incommode us seriously, in
jure other subscribers, and deprive
themselves of the benefit of such im
provements as we would make were
the means to which we are entitled
place at our disposal when they
—The effort on the part of the,
European powers to induce Turkey
to submit to the humiliating pro
posals offered by Russia do not
Mseem likely to succeed. If Turkey'
is the "sick man" among the nations
of the other continent, he isn't sick
enough to accept any such medi-J
erne as this. The Turkish Porte
has sent a counter proposition, but
Russia seems indisposed to listen to
it and declares her former proposal
to be her ultimatum. If that is not
acceded to, war must follow. Mean
while both governments are arming
and concentrating troops, and if de.
pendence can be placed upon the re
ports which reach us, the entire Mus
selman world is in sympathy with the
Turkish government, and a very
large proportion of it will, no doubt,
render material assistance. It looks
to us very probable that the "sick
man," when fairly aroused, will be
found not so very sick as the Euro
pean powers suppose.
—The item which appeared in the
last week, mentioning
Judge Crosby as a proper person for
congressional candidate, but intend
ed, more particularly, to call atten
tion to the niggardly salary paid to
the district judges of this State, in
time for the legislature to apply the
needful remedy, was wholly and
solely our own work. The party
who suggested the judge^for Con
gress did so without thinking or in
tending that the suggestion would be
published. We learn that his Hon
or thinks the suggestion ought not
to have been made while he is on
the bench, but he can't expect peo
ple to hold their tongues about pub
lic officers, and if he objects to be
ing talked about, he had no business
to be a judge.

—The railroads running east from
Chicago have inaugurated another
advance of freights, which are now
raised to 35c. per ioolbs, and 40c.
on fourth class, which includes all
kinds of provisions.. The excuse
for this is, that the freight came on
so rapidly that the roads could not
carry it, and they increase their
rates to prevent being crowded with
an excess of produce. *-,:,.
