The prospects of winter wheat, which amounts to siztenths of the whole crop accepted as a basis of estimats, allowing a fair average to the spring wheat crop, the yield will reach 3C0,000,0C0 bushels. The corn yield, it Is thought, will not be less than 1,300,000,000 bushels. The prospect or a renewal of hostilities in Europe has induced farmers to give increased attention to cereal proiluo Hons." Gbn, Johm A. Lot; an has taken up the per cent claim ol Illinois against the United States. lie has made an argument before the commissioner of the lund Office in substance as follows: "The state ol Illinois has a just and legal claim against the United States, by law required to be stated and paid by the general land offloe of the United States, founded on the fact that congress in the act of admission into the Union, did agree for a good and ade quate consideration, to use twoper cent. 0 the sales of the public lands within said state to make public roads leading to the state, and has In no proper sense pet formed said eontrsot; snd in retaining the two per cent' in the treasury, upon mere quibbles, keeping the state out of this amount, and paying to other states under the same law under which Illinois claims this, Is unfair and unjust and withheld arbitrarily." OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. From Our Ucgular Correspondent. I Washington, D. C, April 3, 1878. At the SEri'BLICAX SENATORIAL CACCL'S on Saturday night no determination as to party action upon the case of Mr. Hayes was reached. Coakllng did not attend, nor did David Davis. It is understood a proposition to send a committee t j reason with Hayes was lost, but that those sena tors who have voted with the administra tionthat Is to sustain nominations will call at the white house soon and talk over matters. Those dyed-in-the-wool Republican senators and representatives who have been a part of the party lrora the first, and who have stuck to it through evil and good report, without wavering, have become convinced that, as things now are, they are steadily losing ground. A tew. like Hamlin, have aN ways been In fivor ot open warfare upon Hayes and the administration, believing that In that way tho next house of re presentatives could bo carried, but that it Hayes continues to bo recognized as a member ot the party aud its ofllctal head, there WOULD BB A STAJII-EDB of the more radical voters of the party and Democrats would have not only the senate but the whole of the lorty-sixth congress. There will certainly be ans other caucus soon, which will be general ly attended by Republican members of both houses, and at about that time there will be music in the air. It cannot be said that tho Democrats are doing all they should to mnke SURE OK THEIR FUTURE. Excellent work has been mapped out, however, and there Is ogam a prospect, as there was two months ago, that the majority ot the houso will push through many reformsand many reductions of expense. Investigations now on foot promise to show ;how over a vast extent of tne country, the matter ot contracting for transporting the malls, has been a mono poly in the hand of a raw RINGS which hayc bcn able by their familiarity with the business, by chivalry and by downright dishonest practices, doubt less when a resort to them seemed ne cessary to virtually silence all competN tlcn and secure to themselves all the big lut Jobs. Subordinate olllcials have often heretofore been detected In collu slon with the shapcrs supplying the needed data for hundreds of straw bids and without whose aid their acceptance would have been very improbable. These have, of course, been punished by dismissal and, when the evidence Justi fied, made to feel the weight ot more poa sltlve penalties. But It seems quite 1ml possible under the system in vogue, to guard the department from the constant impositions which it suggests; and many moderately paid under olllcials find It difficult no doubt to resist tho CONSTANT APPEALS made to their cupidity by success! ul bid ders who an afford to pay haudsomcly from the large profits assured by sub letting, varying from a small up tt CO per cent or even more, for the assistance they are able to render in their official capacity. A radical change In the sys tem seems Indicated by our experience so as to avoid these and other source of loss to the government and corruption ot Its employes. McUarrahan and the New Idlra Mining Company have renewed tho old fight la dead earnest before the ten ate cotntnltlc on public lands. 01 course the latter has nine points ot the law In Its favor, In its possession ol the little plat of coveted territory. The lljrht Is waged with U the cunning and finctu that can be brought to bear by tbo em ployment of tha most emincut legal ability obtainable-on McGarrahaa's side on a contingent iw. liUcly. With the publlo the contest long ago came .to bo HEOARDED AS A DOI1K which ha8no possible interest aside from the cost Imposed by u rehearing at every succeeding session of congress. It seems to be the impression everywhere outside the limited circle on one or the other side hoping to be benefitted by the decision that more than enough of the time that should be devoted to matters of public moment, has been wasted in try Ing to determine the validity of a title which in case ot neither contestant seems based on a foundation much better than mere assertion.
