Northern Paciffic Road.
Holders of bonds of the North
ern Pacific railway are natur
ally anxious over the probable
effect of the suspension of Jay
Cooke & Co. on the value of
the bonds. For the benefit ot
these bondholders, and all oth
ers interested in the comple
tion ot this great railway en
terprise, we append the state
Went ot Sainudl Wilkeson,
Secretary of the Northern Fa
cific railroad:
Tbe Secretary, speaking of
the suspension ot Jay Cooke
& Co , its financial agent, said
ho had no doubt of the future
of the road. It would be con
structed. There were those
supporting it who would
not allow it to be abandoned.
The board of directors alone
represented millions The com
pany had not a dollar of un
paid paper up to the present
time. Not a note of theirs was
ever seen in Wall street, and
not a bond was hypotecated
by the company, consequently
tbe company had no liabilities
hanging over it that might de
scend without warning. The
interest on the company's
bonds was not due until the
1st of January next, and it
would then undoubtedly be
met. That portion of tbe road
already built was earning
more than was anticipated
from it. That portion of it
running to the Red River
country had already developed
a fine carrying trade. lie be
lieved the road would be hind
ered more by hostile Sioux
than by financial revolution.
Neither force, however, could
prevent the successlul com
pletion of the road. Two or
the members of the firm of
Jay Cooke & Co. were direct
ors of the Northern Pacific
Railroad Company. Ihe re
Eult will be that tbe work of
construction will be somewhat
retarded. It is more than prob
able Congress will be asked to
grant an extension of two
years to the company, beyond
that already granted, to enable
it to complete the road. No
such enterprise was ever be
fore attempted by private cap
italiststhat of constructing a
railroad 2,200 miles in length,
across an unsettled continent
Congress should have come to
tbeir aid by extending credit
to the undertaking. It would
have done so but for the dema
gogical cry that corporations
were grasping the entire do
main and overriding the rights
of the people.
The rolling stock is as folj
lows: Locomotive.engines, 72,
passenger cars, 16; baggage
and mail cars, 6; immigrant
and dumps, 25, platform
freight cars, 1,113; box freight
cars, 305. Total cars, 1,516,
The road being in process of
construction, no account of its
earnings can be given.
The expenditures have been
as follows: Surveyors, $109,
153; construction, 12,200,600,
rolling stock, $909,835; too!sf
machinery, and stock supplies;
$358,831; harbor improvements

It is reported irom Washing
ton that a majority of Presi
dent Grant's Cabinet are in fa
vor of restoring the franking
privilege to tbe Departsmenti.
The Postmaster-General will
Oppose the restoration, howev
er, in his next annual report.
Those who lavor it argue that
tbe present system adds to tbe
revenue of the Foal-Office De
partment at the expeube of tbe
Other Departments, and is in
the interest only of those who
told mail contract.
The Presidents Views About
The Panic.
Wasbinct -n, Ost. 12. The
views of President Grant on
tbe financial question were ex
pressed yesterday during con
versation, lie thought the
panic generally through the
country differed essentially,
both in cause and effect, from
any similar event of which he
had known. When such events
have heretofore taken place,
distrust has been occasioned as
to the currency in circulation.
Every one in possession of cur
rency would rush to the banks
with it, or spend it in a most
liberal manner, but now cur
rency actually depreciated is
becoming daily more valuable.
In response to inquiry, he
said he thought he saw in pass
ingevents the nrst steps toward
resumption, for the reason that
panics generally occur when
the country lacks pros
perity, such as from the failure
of cropj, over-purchase from
abroad, etc. In this instance
the panic has occurred in the
midst of the greatest general
prosperity. The aid recently
rendered in the purchase of an
unusually large number of
bonds was not so much real as
moral. The fact is, the Presi
dent said, the money corpora
tions of the country had be
come stampeded and in turn
startled and stampeded the
whole country. 1 ad the Na
tional Treasury seemed to aid
them in some way, fright would
have become more general,
and the consequences to tbe
country were latal. As it was
ha really believed the effect
was going to be beneficial in
many ways to the couniry at
large, though the cost to some
individuals deserving of a bet
ter fate may be serious. The
return to a specie basis can
never be effected, except by
shrinkage of values; the shrink
age has now taken place. Dis
asters to individuals have al
ready overtaken them, and he
siucerely hoped the advantage
might be retained in order to
reach a solid financial basis.
Already currency has appre
ciated to about par with silver,
and be wondered why silver is
not now pouring out. When
this should take place, his the
ory was thai the country could
absorb from two to three hun
dred millions of it
This would prove a great
benefit in several ways. It
would supply a market tor a
number ot years fur the produci
of our miues, now becoming a
drug. It would take the place
ol $40,000,000 of fractional cur
rency, about tbe amount ol
change that experience has
proven to be necsssary tor the
transaction of business, and
will become the currency
which will be hoarded in small
amounts. Lie believed with
silver once more in circulaiion,
greenbacks would never be at
a discount fox silver. All fluc
tuations from that point would
be in the appreciation of the
value of our paper money.
As to legislation, the Presi
dent said he had thought much
on the subject, and if he were
cow engaged iq writing his an
nual message to Congress he
should recommend positive au
thority to reissue $44,000,000
reserve, a free banking law
with the same protection to bill
holders, as now, a repeal of the
clause requiring a reserve for
the protection of depositors, a
percentage of other reserves to
i?e in gold, and that it should
be increased in regular ratio
until the whole reserve would
be in gold. This could be sole
ly effected by requiring such
institutions to 6ave tbe whole
or a large percentage of tbe
gold interest paid to the banks
on their bonds held by tbe
Treasurer of the United State
lor the protection oi bUlholders.
Lie alee favored an absolute
prohibition of interest on de
The President did not con
tend that he would be right in
these recommendations, bu
they embodied views wbicL
nnaided reflection bad brongh
to biui. There was no question
but that much demoralization
and injurious speculation and
gambling was caused by the
accumulation of capital in the
large cities by the payment of
interest on deposits during that
part of the year when money is
not required for moving pro
ducts. This leads country
bankers, merchants and others,
to deposit in city banks, prin
cipally in New York, to make
this money earn something du
ring the period when they do
not wish to use it. Banks pay
ing interest on deposits can
not afford to hold money idle;
hence gambling in fancy etocks,
millions of which would not
support a family even in the
most economical manner, and
the building of railroads that
are not wanted, and which can
not for years pay running ex
penses, etc. Such gambling
and speculation had,he trusted,
received a blow from which he
hoped they never would recov
er. The President said that an
less bis mind should undergo a
change, he would recommend
a poatoffice bank. This would
give an institution in which ev
erybody would have great con
fidence, within reach of every
one who can approach a mon
ey order postoffice. Lie should
recommend payment of 4 per
cent, to depositors, and the
conversion of deposits into
outstanding United States
bonds, or into new 4$ per cent,
bonds, and the taking up of a
corresponding amount of those
American Hardware.
[From the Philadelphia North American.]
A recent article in the Lon
don Tidies, respecting tbe pro
gress of our American hard
ware manufactures, both
abroad and at home, had the
following paragraph :
"Not a little interest and ap
prehension have been excited
in the hardware district, of
which Birmingham is tbe cen
tre, by advices lately to hand
from New York respecting the
wonderful development of the
iron and hardware industries
ot the United States. The ac
curacy of these advices is, in
deed, to some extent confirmed
by the serious diminution of or
ders lor certain classes of hard
ware, tbe manufacturers ol
which have hitherto found In
the American market their
principal customers. Nor does
it appear that our rivals in tbe
States are content with satisfy
ing the requirements of their
market, for. their productions
are alreadysupplanting English
goods in Canada, and to some
extent in Australia and New
In order that this might not
be an exaggerated view of the
case the Times quoted 4a well
informed correspondent" of tbe
Birmingham Post writing from
from New York to this effect:
On one point the hardware
merchants of New York are all
agreed, that tbe day for the sale
ot English hardware has almost
departed. In some few special
articles, such as pliers, etc., the
Germans will probably always
be able to undersell all com
petitors; some English manu
facturers of Jong established
repute, such as Rodgere' cut
lery, will always continue to be
in demand, but lor the rest for
eign made hardware 'will soon
be unknown in this market,
unless some unexpected tarn
ot aflairs changes for awhile
tbe course of trade. And not
only Is this country now com
petent to supply its own needs,
but every year it is gradually
increasing its exports of bard
ware to Canada, to tbe South
American States, and to the
British Australian Colonies. In
deed, it is a very common
boast that in a very short time
he superiority of Yankee skill
and ingenuity will force a mar
ket in England itself for many
articles of American hardware;
i hat Yankee cutlery will ap
pear on English dinner tables,
md Yankee saws, augers, and
chisels be preterred by tbe car
penters of Birmingham and
"These statements are to
some ex'ent corroborated by
tbe advices now being received
by the merchants in Birming
ham and Wolverhampton.
There can be no doubt that ibe
American manufacturers have
turned to profitable account
tbe opportunity afforded by the
present course of events in the
English labor market. For
some years the American man
ufacturers have had to contend
with tbe disadvantage of dear
labor; but ibis very circum
stance has in tbe long run
proved a benefit to them, see
ing that it has enforced tbe ap
plication of labor-saving ma
chinery on a much larger scale
than has been attempted in
this country. The superiority
of American fine iron casting?
has long been acknowledged,
and in tbe earlier years of
hardware manufacture in tbe
States, the dearness of labor
was largely, compensated by
the substitution of cast for
wrought iron in almost all
classes of produce. This ad
vantage was however, obtained
at the expense of the quality
of the goods for strength and
endurance, and the necessity of
increased mechanical appli
ances for tbe saving of hand
labor became apparent some
years since to the leading
manufacturers ot the States.
The wonderful system of la
bor saving machinery is the re
sult. Railway fastenings, door
locks spring bars, curry combs,
tin wares, and some descrip
tions of edge tools are among
the classes of produce in which
American competition is be
ginning to be seriously felt in
Birmingham and the South
Staffordshire district. Last
year's produce of iron rails in
the States was nearly 1,000,000
The elections for the past
two years show that it pays to
nominate good men. All of
our county ticket ran ahead of
the party vote except Keck,
and he has no cause to feel
hurt at Ihe race he has made,
for the whole strength of the
Ring was turned against him,
and Be I lord is acknowledged a
most popular man personally,
and has a large acquaintance
all over the county. Where Mr.
Keek's acquaintance equalled
Belioid's h ran Mr. tMlord
far behind his party. We ra
gret Mr. K's deleat, lor he
would have made an excel
lent Auditor, and would have
been under no obligations to
the Ring if elected.
Explanations as to the dis
crepaucy between the cash re
ported in the Treasury by the
Treasurer and Auditor are
still in order. The Auditor re
ports $6,965 59 andlheTreas
urer reports 0.
The worst feature of the elec
tion is the defeat of Major Cher
rington by Pjrter Dulladwaj for
Judge, which i9 reported by a
telegram from DuIIadway to his
friends here.
A keceji'T Poetoffice decision
is that, if a Postmaster knows
that a letter addressed to his
office is intended lor a person
living within the delivery of
another office, it is his duty to
forward such letter (if it has
been properly prepaid) with
out waiting for a request to do
so, and without additional
charge of postage.

Every merchant, manufacturer
or business man who has lecuvxe
prominently rich, hat made Mb
fortune ly judicious advertising.
JVTo exception to this rule can be
cited! Stewart, the Prince of
Merchants, when a poor man, was
driven to advertising, as a lad
resort, to gel his stock turned into
money so as to meet a note. Ar
guing from this that if it was
good for him in adversity, he
could make it still better in pros
perity, he became a persistent ad
vertiser, and thus gained his co
lossal fortune.
ome merchants b j it is not worth
while to advertise; for no person rends
advertisements; vet every merchant in
this county will read this advertise
ment, and if lie is wise he will profit
hy its sujigeslion, if he has anything to
offer wurtli advertising. How much
mere then will those rend them who
are not so largely supplied with read
ing matter, aro at leisure in the even
ing, and must depend un their paper for
their local news, the most important
item ff which is where they can Bnd
just what they witnt when they come to
town to make their purchases. Ifyoui
stuck is so old, rusty, dusty and out of
stylo that it is worthless, or if it it run
down so that you have nothing left that
people would w.nt, it is not worth
while for you to advertise. But if it is
new, Irenh and sparkling, up to the
times, nnd such as the people want,
don't hide them, but pulilish to the
world that you have them, and want
to sell thom at a fair price.
An advertisement published for a sin
gle day does duty beyond that day,
nnd its effect continues in a greater
ratio thnn most men imp'jine. Jn the
end it will make a man's name a per
manent nmtler, rt piece of rent proper
ty built up in toe minds of men until
it becomes more valuable than any
corner lot in his locality.
If you lose a watch, a dog or a child,
or if you desire people not to trust
your wife, you rush tt-your local pa
per, knowing toateveiy one will rend
the advertisement llui you will plod
along in business year after year, with
out calculating how much you ore los
ing by not advertising it Rtporter.
If those persons who profess to be
lieve that newspaper advertisements
are not reai by the publio wish to be
convinced o." their error, just let them
pvo pu'inc-.y to somo matter they
would not care to divulge to the world,
even in the most ohsenre corner of a
country paper, and see whnt notoriety
they would soon attain. Advertiser s
Advertising is apt to give ns that
gentle joj ol conscience which tells ns
that we want a new suit of clothes for
Sunday, or tliut we promised our wife
a new drees as soon ns the liny was in.
Perhaps it would be a good plan for
Madame to mark this passage nnd lay
the paper nnn her husband s break
fast plate. Who will sny that adver
tising will not yet civilize the world!
Why do people read advertisements?
To see who is eoterpt ising and to learn
what is going on. To see if there is
anything new, or anything that they
want, t'o see if tbe season's styles
hnve come in, and to find out who has
them. To know if any one is selling
off at reduced rates, or to watch the
chance of an auction. For amusement
To euliefy curiosty. Because they
have read all the stories, marriages,
births, deaths, !ocals and accidents.
Becnose they want to. Because they
can't help it OA to Stale Journal
The power of print is well known,
but not well understood. A printed
sentence has a wonderful advantage
over one that is written or spoken.
This is one of the many reasons which
gives n importance to advertising. But
advertisers, even those of experience,
do not comprehend as well as they
might the capaoity to influence, to per
euade, to convince, which lies in print
ed matter. Spoken words require the
graces of elocution and the force of
eloquence, yet even then fade away in
to nothingness if not caught in tbeir
flight and printed. But there is some-,
thing in the silent langnage, the quiet
assertion and the sense of permanence
about printed matter whioh gives it a
marvelous force and influence. Busi
ness men should never permit them
selves to loose sight of what may be
accomplished by a persevering nse of
the printing presses. Learn to adver
tise, and then the "how, when and
where" of it, and yoa will have a
frnowlodge worth having.
