Chicago on Saturday and were forwarded
thence by General Brysbin.
tSTThe Chicago IrSmne says the Re
publican party was organized to put
down slavery, which it has done. What
the Democratic party was organized for
has been long since forgotten.

closed, locking np about 3,000,000 bushels
of grain which will have to remain all

nearly 1,500,000 bushels of wheat '
rjfThe Department of State has
received a telegram from the Consul at
Hong Kong, that the King of Portugal
had by proclamation prohibited the coolie
trade at Macao and closed the barra
coona. The report that the Spanish Gov
ernment requires of the United States the
restoration of the Yirginius and the pay
ment of an indemnity, is not believed in
official circles, no. authentic .information
baring been received to that effect
-Judgment has been entered against
bondsmen of Genet, Norton and other
members of the Tweed Ring who have
made their escape. The bondsmen
thought they were released after an ap
pearance Cor trial had been entered, but
it has been dec ided otherwise.
3F"A part of the company of young
Japanese who have been studying at An
Arbor have been summoned home. It
seems probable that the financial embar
ressment of the Mikado's Government
may render necessary still further cur
tailment of the liberal appropriations fur
educational purposes.
S3 At Riga, a village near Dodson, O.,
there was a shooting match on Christmas
day, at which two brothers engaged in a
personal altercation over the loading of a
rifle. One shot the other dead, and the
outraged crowd put the survivor out of
the way by hanging him on the nearest
tree. Too much whisky caused it all.
' EsT"The criminal Jurisdiction of the
Probate Courts of Salt Lake City, is.again
denied by Judge McKean. In the case of
, Kiesel, sentenced for ten years in the Pen-
itenti&ry, the action of the Probate is set
, aside, and the prisoners held to bail, to
answer in the District Court There is
, some talk of the counsel having the Pro

fSTThe Postmaster General has crea
- ted great consternation among special
agents of his .department by issuing an
order that they should be subjected to a
sort of civil service examination, to as
certain their fitness for the position tbey
hold. He has, however, somewhat allay
ed the excitement by announcing : that
ample opportunity will ba afforded them
to prepare for the examination.
- C2TA review of the produce trade of
Chicago for the past year, just published
shows .the receipts of gram during the
year to have been, 96,731,598 bushels ;
shipments, 91,035,703 bushels ; receipts of
ttgs, 4,360,000 ; head of cattle, 765,000 ;
sheep, 800,000 ; lumber, 1,084,993,000 feet

the produce, received during the year, is
in round numbers, $340,000,000.
5FThe Government Directors of the
Union Pacific Railroad reports .that the
Company are selling lands at i.50 an
acre, subject to the subsequent perfection
of title thereto by the Government, not
withstanding the prohibition of sale on
account of the non payment of interest on
the subsidy bonds. It this statement . is
correct, the purchasers buy at the risk of
' never receiving a good title, and proba
bly under a misapprehension of the real
estate of affairs.

Tbey are of coarse utterly opposed to

South een Te ads Reviving. The
Charleston News remarks that its is
sue of the 19th inst. contained the
largest list of vessels in port that has
been seen at any one time since 1865,
and in amount of tonnage probably
the heaviest that ever occupied the
harbor. These vessels have been at
tracted thither by the liberal offer
ings of cotton, rice, naval stores,
phosphates, fcc. In cotton receipts
alone Charleston shows a gain of
twenty thousand bales over those of
last year. These are anspicions in
dications of the revival of trade and
commerce in the Southern marts,
and, with the completion of the iur
ternal improvement already jit pro
gress, the future prosperity of the
South may be safely assured.
The wholesale trade of Chicago for the
year just closed runs up to 530 millions,
gain of 13 per cent, over the year 1872.

School Board, and -a'-bretse more or. less
fearful, is impending. The City Solicitor,
who seems to be destitute of knightly
gallantry, headsthe opposition, while the
press of the city leads the march ot ideas.
The ladies are plucky and are not going
to dwarf themselves by a tame, ignoble,
submission, and how the thing is to ' ter

'Investigation, says the St Paul Pioneer'

Only the successful thief has been. wor

The passengers of the Yirgiuius arrived
at the port of New York in the steamer
Juniata on Sunday last, and an examina

Louisiana " Middle. The Kellogg
and ilcBnery Legislatures meet in New
Orleans on Monday next, when it is prob
able that the bitter political warfare of
old will be resumed. The proposition
which was made, last winter to effect a
coalition of the two so' as to weed out
the impure element . of . each . body and
consume a Legislature founded upon hon
est returns, has been revived, but meets
with little favor. The New Orleans Pie-
ayune, pronounces it impractical, ana
says it cannot be effected without reflect
ing discredit upon all engaged in it . In
theKeilogg Legislature there : will be -a
fierce strife over the Speakership between
the Kellogg and Pincuback factions.. As
the United States Senate Committee on
Transportation is now in New Orleans,
they will be ' witnesses of what trans

Dispatches from W asmngton within a
day or two have stated that it was propos
ed to appoint Prof. Edmund Andrews, of
Chicago as oue of the Regents of Smiths
oman Institution in place of Prof Agasaiz,
The appointment would be, says the Chi
cago Tribune, an appropriate, recognition
of the claims of the West to share.. in
whatever honor and responsibility may
attach to the management of the in
stitution, but it would be eminently prop
er in itself, for he is one of the leading
scientific men of the country. . Only last
winter he proposed a theory of the Gey
sers, a problem that had never been
solved, though Bunsen and Tyndall bad
attempted it, and, by a :very. simple
contrivance, he showed his theory to be
correct-.. Apparatus illustrated" all the
phenomena -of -tea-Gaysew' perfectly.
Our Academy pt Sciences and all who
saw his experiments were perfectly satis
fied that the secret of theGeysers' was at
length ' revealed.- ' The authorities' at
Washington would honor themselves and
pay a just tribute to the Science of . the
West by making Dr.' Andrews one of the
Regents of the Smithsonian institution ''
The strike of the engineers on the lines
of tie Pennsylvania , Co., has attracted
considerable attention and interest on ac
count of the movement being so extensive,
and affecting so great an extent of lines.
The movement, which at first scent
ed so powerful,;, has, however, . Jost
much character from an official manifesto
from Chas. . Wilson, Chief of the Broth
hood of engineers who publicly an
nounces that the strike was inaugurated
in direct and open violation of the rules,
advises those who have quit work to re
sume again ana prevent otners lrom
stopping, and warns them not to interfere
with the operations of the railroads. The
appearance ot tne man lies to will un
doubtedly have a great influence in re
storing quiet throughout Indiana ' and
Ohio where the strike is the most general
and violent. Notwithstanding the fact
that a train was thrown off the track near
Cincinnati, and that one or two attempts
of a similar nature were made in Indiana,
there is a percep:ible improvement in the
condition of things. The roads are grad
ually getting into running order again,
and the presence of the militia at various
points where the excitement has been
the greatest has had a good effect. There
is good reason to bclieva that the worst
is over, and that the present week will
witness the end cf the strike.
Hon. Alex. II. Stephens thinks the
colored race ought to have equal
protection with the white in their
rights, but is of opinion that it
pertains to these vera! States to se
cure them, and not the Federal gov
ernment. If the colored race wait
until "the several States" guaran
tee them equal civil rights, ; they
will wait until their race is extinct.
Why even in Pennsylvania, the
Constitutional Convention refused
to incorporate a clause protecting
them, and if not in Pennsylvania,
where then, out side of Massachus
etts? Mr Stephens would pontpono
it until indefinitely. - ' i

has been assumed, in the hope that
we (shall be able, through the
promptness and liberality of our
friends, and the probable increase of
business, to see our way out. But
whatever the sense of the burden
may be, we are not left comfortless.
The size . and appearance of the pa

us, as we presume it is to our patrons

EsGUSH . Importations. The
statement of American Foreign trade,
for the last fiscal year, shows that
about one-third oi our imports came
from Great Britwn, The Engli
trade return, giving the exports of
that country to the United States,
explains what kind of goods make
up this large aggregate. ' For the
eleven months of the current. 'rear
ending November 30, Great Britain
sent us, among other, articles, .104
millions of yards of cotton goods; 97
millions of yards of linens;' 83 mill
ions of yards of worsted goods; five
millions of yards. of carpets;' mill-
ions of yards of woolen cloth; 99,000
tons of pig iron; . 22,000 tons of , bar
and rod iron 1 1 8,000 tons of rail
road iron; 18,000 tons of hoop and
boiler iron; 2635 tons of lead; nearly
one million pounds of wool.; and silk
goods to the value of nearly$300,00Q.
Compared : with the corresponding
period of 18?2, every one of these
items shows a decreased importation,
the largest decrease being in the im
portation, of iron, - which, aggregated
for 1873, 317,730 tons, whilst in the
eleven months of 1872 it was 719,106

Thb Vikginius has found an owner
iu John F. Patterson, of the city of New
York. ' He has sent a letter to Secretary
Fish declaring that he is the registered
ownerjof the steamer Vinrinius. He pro
tests against the opinion of the Attorney
General by which he and the vessel were
condemned. He states that the Solicitor
of the Treasury gave him a bill of sale of
the steamer thereupon he (Patterson) tru
ly swore that he was the oner and the
Government gave her an American reg
ister which has ever since porotected her.
Any testimony charging perjury on his
part is false. He has hitherto kept si
lence by the advice of counsel and because
he has not been netifiod or culled upon
by the Government to testify or defend
himself m relation to the matter. He re
auests a copy of the evidence upon which
the Virglnius and he were condemned by
Attorney General, be sent him, and that
he be notified of the time aud place
for examination of any other witnesses.
While the steamer has thus found an
owner, the owner has not round the vir
glnius. The Ossipee that had her In tow
has arrived but, without Its chargo, and
as yet nothing Unknown of her, or her
fato. This is a singular aspect of the af
fair. The opinion not an improbable
one is that the storms that have prevail
ed upon the- Atlan'ie within a few days,
past, ' proved too severe for" towage
with Barely, and that It may have become
necessary to cut her clear, in which case
Bho probably went to the bottom an end,
perhaps; worthy ot her fame.
Later Information is to the effect that
the Virginlus founded off Cape Clear.
She leaked so bady as to put out the fires,
and the water could, not be controlled by
the pumps. Very naturally, the suspicion
will be raised thai the vessel was sunk by
deaign, but thus far, there Is nothing to
Justify the suspicion.
telligence, and publo spirit of any
community is, supported, in neatly
printed, sprightly, and carefully ed:
ited local journals. In no way,
through no other conceivable chan
nel, can the wants, aspirations, er
consequence of any locality or com
munty become so well known to
the world at large as through its
own home papers. If the reader
will call to mind any inland town
near his residence, which enjoys a
hne reputation all over the land, he
will find that such a place is favor
ed with an excellent county paper,
the editor of which is wide awake
and alive to all its interests, jealous
in protecting its good name, and un
tiring in his efforts to promote its
weltare. buch papers and such men
deserve the highest rewarads and
the most thorough appreciation at
the hands of the people for whom
they are . performing so useful and
noble a mission. This being true
and no one disputing the premise
it follows that the first duty of the
people is to subscribe and pay for
their own home paper before looking
abroad for reading matter of this

we never solicit patronage, nor. sees
in any manner to advance our own

the highest usefulness outside of our

have neither . the ' . disposition nor
the ability to compete., .No mon

Diplomatic Dinner—Brother Jonathan

A strange scene took place at To
koi Japan, on the Emperor's birth
day. . In the evening dinner was
given at the emperor s palace to the
foreign ministers accredited to Ja
pan, lerashims, the new .Minister
for; Foreign affairs presided. With
the dessert Sir Harry S. Parkes as
British Minister, rose and proposed
the health of , the Emperor, which
he accompanied by a speech, At
the close he called upon the French
Minister, remarking it was his turn
next . to speak. Ihe count briefly
responded, excusing himself, and as
he resumed his seat J udge Bingham
the American Minister, rose to offer
"Prosperity, happiness, and pro
gress to the sovereign and the , peo
ple of Japan," when Sir Harry, ,,vio-
Jently interrupting, shut him off
completely, , nouoning nun 10 sii
down, and crying out "No more,"
"No more.". Judge Bingham re
sumed his seat gracefully, when a
lively discussion ensued across, the
table, in which. Sir Harry became
very much excited, contending
warmly that the sentiment was out
of order, as it introduced politics and
superfluous in language, as the "i.m-
peror was the, people;" but the
Judge cooly informeq. him that he

Joseph Areh has bad an interview
with Premier Gladstone at the re-i
quest of the latter. He recounted
his Canadian experiences, and.
told Mr. Gladstone the only!
way to keep the laborers in the!
country and arrest emigration is
to grant household suffrage in the
counties, and to induce land owners
by legslation or otherwise to improve
cottages and grant leases of two or
three acres of land on the term as

stone said in reply is not reported.'
On the point of oouuty suffrage
there will be no difficulty. The
Prime Minister has announoed his
readiness to put It on the same ba
sis as iu boroughs, and there is rea
son to suppose that a bill to that
end will be brought iu next session
as a Government measure. Dealing
with land owners is a more difficult
matter. They are, as a body, the
slowest to see the necessity of
changes, or to accept them, or to
imagine the possibility of a state of
things in England which should dis
turb their tenure.

The Warren Chronicle gives the
following cheese item: ;The number

bull County the past year, according
to returns, was o.iiuxdo. ixrain
exceeds us by over 1,000,000 pounds
Trumbull County produced over 900,

over 1,200,000..:. Trumbull produced
over half a million more pounds of
cheese than Ashtabia. -.
"A year ago says the Chicago Tri
bune, the Hon. John F, Farnsworth.
of Illinois, who opposed the salary
Grab law, drew the 'back, pay and
uiviueu it uetwveu tuo eeveiai wuu-
ties 6f his district '. The' people- of
those couhtiea erenitorly refused to
receive the money ;bn the ground
thai; it-w'as stolen property,' and one
of the " counties actually forwarded
its T portion: to the Treasury of 'the
United States. ' This same district
composed of the Counties of 'Boone,,
Winnebago, DeKalb,' Kane,' and Mc-,
Hehryi is now represented by" GehJ
Stephen A.1 HurlburV'who instead
of voting for' the repeal of the act of;
roDDery : nimseir proposed inai ine
salary of the 'members of Corigresa
should 1 be - increased .' fronj. ' what
it was a' year ago to the sum. i6,00d
a year and traveling expenses;. ' If
it was robbery a year ago to receive,
$7,500," instead of tS'.OOO and ' inile-!
age,' fs it less than' robbery now to;
take $6,008 and personal expenses?
Does the robbery consist in tne
amount taken, of in" the person whoi
takes it?.' ' Farnsworth opposed and
form; he refused to take the ' money
when forwarded him; and the peo
ple agreed that ' H was Unclean be-
cause' dishonest, runout aeiiDer-;
atelv nronoses to pay himself $6,000
over $5,000 of which he had al-j
ready drawn and his traveling ex-
penses, ' Perhaps the people of that
district were not in earnest in de4
nouncing the increase of pay; per
haps Stephen knew they did not
want that law repealed ;. and per j
haps there is a moral difference be
tween taking $1,000 extra pay and
taking $2,500. ' , ' '. ; . " j

How Ton Can Do It?
..' Save Your Money!
Don't be Salted any longer !
1 HE old style of Buying and Sell
ing Giocerie is Played Out with ua. CASH is
the only TRUE principle on which to do Busi
nesses within the last few weeks we have worth
ed a wonderful and marvelous change. Hundreds
of people a month ago never thought that GRO
CERIES could be sold at inch
Marvelous Low Prices.
Now, every day scores of customers are added to
our list, a they find they can get bettor Good
for less money.
This is no Advertising Uumbn". The fact is
patent to ail. Common sense tells how we can
atford to underaell.
WaiVSelL Only For - CASH!
This is an advantage which NO STORE IX ASH
TABULA can offer yon. If you buy of a credit
store, yon must pay credit prices, yoa must pay.
the bad debts of dishonest customers, the expen
ses of extra help and book keepers, interest of
long standing debts, and ruinous price of old
alow style of doing business. ,
. . i
and the-aid yon extend to us will sustain in
your midst competition that will keep prices down
break -np extortion and high pricca, and sell yod
good goods for less money than you have been
accustomed to pay for inferior articles.
We Mean Business,
and we guarantee to Save yoa Honey. The
reasons must be self-evident to every reasona- :
ble citizen. It is not in keeping with good '
. sense or economy to waste money in
these hard times by paying
high prices or buying
poor Good.
