himself that a man might had been

blankets and the house closely shut up

fire and hold his head down to it and al
most roast it in the effort to warm. I is
a fact that he put cloths on his head to
protect his scalp from actual burning
while doing thus, and the cloths have
been actually set on fire by the heat he
subjected them to in endeavoring to
warm his head. Some time ago he made
a visit to Livingston in the hope of being

out of the office into the street for the

The next day Dr W had him in his
office again to make a more critical ex

mometer the degree* of animal heat he
carried, and found it near normal. With
all of this trouble he lost little flesh, and

JCnaltoh a in Market.
Tlie Mark Lane Expre$$ says: There is
decided change for the better In the appear
ance of the growing wheat, which hi now in
full bloom At first sight the fields seem to
promise a large crop, but in many fields the
ears are small. With the exception of barley
and oath, appearances at present point to a
fair average yield of cereals, as far as quanti
ty is concerned, while the quality is likely to be
mediocre. Insignificant supplies of Englibh
wheat at Mark Lane, and provincial markets,
indicate a rapid depletion of stocks in far
mers' hands, and that little, or not any, will be
left over at harvest time. Imports of foreign
wheat into London have been more moderete
of late, but the supplies go into the grainry
rather than consumption. Small lots of white
wheat have been taken off the stands for cen
tennial account, principally for Belgium and
north France where the crops are unsatisfac
tory and prices several shillings higher than
la London, but no further sales of cargoes off
coast have taken place. Malre has not un
dcrgone much change on spot, but new mix
ed American to arrive was offered at 22s. 6d.
per quarter "cx-ehip," a price hitherto un.
known for this article. With liberal arrivals
at ports of call the floating cargo trade for
wheat is dull and prices declined fully a shil
ling per quarter. Maize and barley receded
fully six-pence per quarter.
Complaint was made at Omaha, N
raska, on the 2nd inst., by U. S. district at
torney Neville, against H. A. Newman, late
collector of internal revenues for the district
of Nebraska, John Roberts and W. Bart
lett, deputy collector. Bartlctt is charged
with the embezzlement of $3,200. Newman
and Roberts are charged with knowing the
fact, but withholding the same from the
commissouer of internal revenue for the pur
pose of shielding Bartlett. The latter return,
ed the money subsequently, and Newman's
accounts arc all straight, tlie government
not losing a dollar. Newman and Roberts
were arrested to-day and waived examination
and gave nominal bonds. Bartlett is now in
Michigan, and will be arrested as soon as
possible. Sympathy here is strong for New
man, as his violation of law was prompted
by pity for Bartlett, whose wife was very ill
at the time, and exposure then might have
caused her death, and as full restitution has
sinoe been made to the government. It is
considered here very doubtful whether the
grand jury will bring indictments against
Newman and Robert* under the foregoing

N from Dallas, Oregon, states that
a scouting party of 14 men, on the south fork
of Day river came upon a body of Indians sup
posed to be 1,400 strong. An encounter
ensued, but the scouts escaped with one man
killed. A Umatilla dispatch of July tith re
ports a fight with Indians at Campos Prairie.
One Indian was killed. June 29th Gen. How
ard's advance cavalry was pursuing Indians
in John Day's valley. A Van Couver despatch
of July 6th says news from the Indians was
creates great excitement and stir. Every
available man is ordered out. Major Throe
morton writes to Gen. Wheaton, from Can
yon City, July 1st, as follows: I have just re
turned from carrying dispatches to Col. Gra
ver's command. Everything is disorganized.
Indians all around us. We have been fighting
far the last three days. Can't tell how many
are killed. We know of 11 of our men. We
want help. I have been in the saddle for
three nights. All business houses are closed.
The rretltlrnt In Pennsylvania
A flarrisburg telegram of July 2d says:
President Hayes accompanied by Mrs. Hayes,
two sons, Secretary Sherman, Attorney Gen
eral Devens and others, arrived here this after
noon. The party were met at the depot by
Gov. Hartranft anil a number of citizens and
were driven immediately to the executive
mansion. President Hayes was introduced
by the Governor and spoke very briefly, refer
ing particularly to the centennial celebration of
1876, it having inspired patriotism of the peo
ple, and proven beneficial to the country. By
way of illustration he mentioned the fact of
the large increase of exports over imports.
The Presientd introduced Secretary Sherman,
who also spoke very briefly. lie touched
lightly upon the finances, and predicted that
gold, silver, and greenbacks will soon be
equal in value.
Tlie Massacre Wyoming
A Wilksbarre, Pa., on tbe 3rd inst. the
opening exercises of the commemoration of
the one hundredth anniversary of the battle
and massacre of Wyoming took place to-day
with fully 6,000 people in attendance. The,
Presidential and gubernatorial party were
met at Northumberland at 2 o'clock in the
moroiig by the reception committee, and
along the route between Northumberland
and Wyoming the greatest enthusiasm pre
vailed. Every station was profusely decora
ted and .the inhabitants turned out en mass
to greet the President,' and bid him welcome.
But few stops were made. At some points
calls for his Excellency were so great that
the President shook hands with as many as
he could, while at other stations he made
a shott speech, thanking the people heartily
jor their pleasant greeting.
Mesasantion of speci a
Senator Sherman says he has not de
cided to announce the resumption of specie
payments in advance of the first of January
next, the time fixed by law. He says, howev
er, resumption may come before that time by
natural causes, or when the premium on
specie shall disappear that we are now ap
proaching the point and that it is the duty of
the government to empfoy all legitimate
means to procure such a result The coin
balance in the treasury is about two hundred
million and steadily increasing, as there is no
idea the balance will fall below the present
figure this, with the present low premium on
gold form the basis of the general anticipa
tion here that resumption will occur before
the first of Jannary.
Th India War
The savages are active in their hos
tility, and seemed disposed and prepared to
night out a long campaign. An Oregon dis-
patch of July 8th reports the Indians strongly
fortified, 35 miles from Canyou City, waiting
to give Howard battle. Gov.Chadwick tele
graphed from Umatilla., that Capt. Sperry's
command, fortj strong, is nearly annihilated,
a repetition of the Custer massacre. Sperry was
kUled, and nearly all of his eommand killed
or wounded, only seven left. The friendly
Umatilla Indians fought 400 Snake savages all
day July 2d, killing 80 and wounding two.
Volunteers atJ»ortland were hasting to aid
the settlers in eastern Oregon. Howard was
expected to be ready to fight the fortified sav
ages, represented to be 1,600 strong, 1000 of
whom were well armed.

A charge comes from St. Louis that the

closing the race at an hour earlier than an.

7th says: "A St. Louis man who returned
from Louisville makes a startling statement
concerning the race of the 4th. He says Col.
Lewis Clark, of the Louisville Jockey Club,
told him that the horse had been got at, how
or in what manner he was not at liberty to
state, but from information fnrnished him on
July Sd, be felt sure that efforts would be
made to irug the horse, and all precautions
that could be made to prevent it were taken.
Gov. Cbadwick, of Oregon, received

dated June 29th: Our scouting party sur

south fork of tne John Day river. Indians

THE I'RESIDESTIAL rJLrJt IIOS.
InveatlKatlna" the Election ot 1M70 I
the Potter Keaolntlon—James E. An
derson and Secretary Sherma on the
TUESDAY, July 2.--Thomas C. Anderson
recalled. A long examination of witnesses
regarding the opetations of the returning
board elicited nothing new. Witness had
heard that Daniel Weber was killed because
he signed the protest. Never heard he was
killed as Judge Campbell testified because he
was supposed to have had the Sherman letter
on bis person, nomas E. Jenks denied that
he ever made an aflidavi'c in James E.
Anderson's hand writing similar to the one
submitted before tbe Louisiana sub-committee
yesterday. James E. Anderson testified that
Jenks dictated the aflidvit and Anderson
copied it and then went to notary Seymour's
office and Jenks swore to it. The object in
making the affidavit was to aid Anderson in
securing Jenks a position. Anderson was to
show the affidavit to Matthews. Emile \veber
testified that his brother Daniel and James
E. Anderson said the two parishes had gone
fairly Democratic. A great influence had
been brought to bear on his brother to get
him to sign the protest. John Sherman was
spokesman for the visiting statesmen, and
witness knew that Sherman had given his
brother assurances. Sherman assured wit
ness his brother would be cared for. His
brotliT showed his (Sherman's) letter and
said he had received it direct from Sherman.
Witness was familiar with Sherman's hand
writing, and was satisfied the letter was writ
ten by Sherman. Great search was made for
the letter, and late in the summer witness
found and destroyed it. Mrs. Jenks had been
in no way connected with tlie authorship of the
Sherman letter. The witness was shown a
long letter he had written in March, 1877. He
requested committee not to have it rend. But
it was read. Witness denied the truth of
statements in the letter. He had written it
under misinformation. He was subjected to
a long cross examination, and before conclud
ing, committee adjourned.
W E N E S A Y, July 3 Emi L. Webci
testified before the Potter committee that in
conversation with Senator Sherman witness
was assured that if his brother should stand
by the President he would be protected. Two
or three days after his brother Bhowcd him
the Sherman letter, and told him Sherman
gave it to him. Witness had the Sherman let
ter in bis hand. It was written on double
sheet note paper. Witness said it was arranged
before election by Kellogsr, Thomas Ander
son and Packard to secureaffidavitsof intimida
tion in he parishes of East and West Feliciana
for the purpose of throwing out those par
ishes. Witness testified farther as to tlie ex
istence of the Sheiman letter, and its de
struction about the action of Mrs. Jenks.
Mrs. Dan Weber and her brother about Eliza
Pinkston, and other matters, averring that
Mrs. Jenks had tolu Mrs. Weber the 8herman
letter was worth a thousand dollars, and said
she would pay her a good price for it. Mrs.
Jenks did not intimate to Mrs. Weber that
she had any thing to do with the authorship
of the letter, but always spoke of it as a letter
written by John Sherman, assuring Weber
and Anderson positions under the adtnin
ist-ation. Witness produced letters from sev
eral parties, and his further examination was
postponed, and he was ordered to appear be
bore the sub-committe at New Orleans. The
committee adjourned to July 10th,
MONDAY. July 8.—The Potter sub-com
mittee had a session at New Orleans, Monday
July 8th., and witnesses were examined. But
nothing of importance) was elicited, except
ing to bring out in bolder relief the crooked
ness ef Louisiana political action. It was
shown that in 1872 indictment had been found
against Thomas H. Jenks for embezzlement,
and had been nollied. and the records do not
show that any warrant, had been issued for
Jenks, and he may not have known of the in
dictment. No evidence of an indictment
against T. B. Jenks was found.

An Important Aid far I'arm.-tit.
Happening in at the office of Seymour,
Sabin&Co., Wednesday morning, our at
tention was called to the .number of orders
received by mail that morning, for Min
nesota Chief Threshors. Single orders came
for ten machines there were two for two
machines each, and four for one car load
each. The entire number of machines
ordered amounted to thirty, and the orders
were all from Minnesota and Iowa, except
two. This led to inquiries as to the busi
ness of the firm, and we gathered some
facts that may be of interest to our readers.
EXTENT OF THE BUSINESS.
On the day before our call there had been
shipped 15 machines, and the entire number
shipped this season, up to that hour, had been
424, while 8 more were then ready for the
care, making tho season's shipments, up to
Wednesday night, 432. The number of
sales this season has been something over
600 machines, about 175 orders lemaining
yet to be filled. No business day of late has
brought orders for less than 15 machines,
and the selling season has just fairly opened.
The prospect now is that three, and perhaps
fonr machines will be wanted by agents foi
every one that can possibly be supplied.
MERITS OF THIS MINNESOTA CHIUF.
The letter files of the firm give conclusive
evidence that tho Minnesota Chief sells on
on its merits to a remarkable degree. In
places where single machines are once in
operation, there is at once a demand for
more. In sections where the Minnesota
Chief is introduced, agents almost invariably
report that the representatives of other
threshing machine firms are cutting down
on prices, and still the Chief sells steadily,
and much more rapidly than it can be sup
plied. The Stillwater firm is now building
more threshers than any other house in the
country save one.
Sales are rapid in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan,
Kentucky, Texas, and Kansas. In the last
State it is believed that the nnmber of the
Minnesota Chiefs sold is more than double
the number of sales of any other threshor,
and if all orders could be filled the sale of
the Chief would be greater than the sales of
all other machines, introduced in the State,
combined. The Minnesota Chief is already
an established favorite with farmers who
have seen it in Oregon, and the foundation
of a large business has been laid there.
Proposals have been made to the firm, by
a New York house, looking to the introduc
tion of the Minnesota Chief in New Zealand
and Australia, and arrangements for the first
shipment will probably be closed
ere this article reaches the eye of
the reader. Business with those distant
markets will be done entirely on a cash basis.
Reports from Texas, Illinois. Kentucky, and
all winter wheat regions where the thresher
is now in operation, indicate that the de
mand another year will bo far in excess of
tho demand the present season, and the
Bhrewdest may well hesitate before fixing a
limit for the future growth of the business
of manufacturing the Minnesota Chief.
l'AST GBOV T1.
The record of tho past few years shows
conclusively how satisfactory the Chief has
proved in operation. In 1875 there were
manufactured 5 machines. The next year
125 were made. In 1877 tbe nnmber reach
ed 312. It was intended to double that
nnmber this year, but the pressure of de
mand will compel the firm to do much more
than that, and even then a majority of ap
plicants will be obliged to wait. The firm
will, however, fill all orders that it con
tracts to fill, and all who are promised
threshers by responsible representatives of
the concern, will get them. The growth of
business based on the merit of the thresher
has been fostered by such judicious manage
ment as insures the future.
