Th. large. paper In ArtUbal. prl-ted en tlrely t home. Office 1M Main Street. ASHTABCT.A. - - 0"; Friday Morning June .7th, 1878. We have renewed reports of violent on the Mexican border, murder is committed, and cattle stolen and driven across the Rio Grande. Ramon of restlessness among the Indians of the northwest are in circulation, and the indications are sufficiently somber to awak- .hnsions of another struggle. The Bannocks and Brules are the tribes that are in the broil. Wood's Tariff Bill was defeated on Wednesday last, by striking out the enatt- iw plans. A coalition of the Republicans .;tk P Vw Jersey and a few other Democrats brought it about. The poll was 134 to 12014 maj. The impression strengthens that the whole Potter investigation is a Democratic conspiracy based on forged documents agd perjured witnesses, to yerturn the Government. Anderson's examination has developed perjury so -openly that its effect was plain upon the audience. The act nassed bv the Ohio Legislature, May 15th, 1878, to regulate the sale of mineral oil in Ohio, fixes tha test of oil that may be sold in this State, at 130 o flash test by the Foster Cup. Te stand the above test will require oil of fully 150 fire test, which is a higher test than the oil heretofore sold as Ohio legal test. JKo oil lower in test can lawfully be sold L . Ohio, and the act provides for the eppoint ment of an inspector and deputies to en force the law. This is the way the Cleveland Eerald takes on. Is it not a little mournful ? It is high time our citizens besfirred themselves if they de not want the mouth of every creek that empties into the lake between Erie and Toledo to become a rival to Cleveland in the coal shipping business. Ashtabula, Fairport, and Black River have already taken nearly half the trade in this line that used to be transacted here. If this sort of thing is not to go on still furth er the Valley Road must be speedily com pleted and the best and cheapest facilities for the transshipment of coal fiom cars to vessels must be provided at this point. First, let the money be subscribed to finish the railroad : then we can turn our atten tion to the breakwater and the new coal docks. It is stated in the annual report of the Secretary of the State that every one hun dred acres in the Western Reserve, besides yielding a variety of tillage crops,yields al so an average of nearly two hundred and sixty-two pounds of butter, and nine hundred and twenty-four pounds of cheese, whilst the famous Scioto Valley yields less than half that amount of butter, and less than three pounds of cheese on the same area. No other equal group of counties yield more than two hundred and six pounds of cheese to the one hundred acres. The Re serve averaged more than nine and a half head of cattle to every one hundred acres, . whilst neither the Scioto nor Miami Val leys, both famous for cattle, exceed six and one-half head to the hundred acres. Emperor William. The conclusion to be drawn from another murderous attack upon the life of the Em peror following only three weeks after that of Hodel, is that there is an organized con spiracy against the life of this sovereign. This last attempt at assassination seems to have been arranged with more intelligence than the previous one as was shown by the degree of success that attended it. Wounds to the number of 80, were inflicted about the head and shoulders, and the arms, by the tuck shot which constituted the charge, These wounds, happily, were not serious enough to endanger life. Most of the shot were extracted.but the fear of inflammation prevented the entire removal. As in the other case the Emperor was fired at while out on an airing upon the streets of the capital city. The shot was fired from window of the apartment of Dr. Kobeling the assassin, who had not been in the city but a short time. Naturally enough the would-be assassin was tinctured with socialistic notions. He had accompliches, and had been in communication on the plet for some six months. After the attempt upon the Emperor's life, the assassin made another upon his own, so wounding himseif, that it was a matter of some doubt whether he would survive, SOUTH FLORIDA LETTER. This trip took me into new pastures, away down south of Tampa, and into the vast cattle range of South Florida. I have heard it remarked that law and its purposes was a very dry thing, but I found it and its surroundings something to wheton one's appetite, and travelling as we d.d, right after heavy rains, I came to the conclusion it was a very wet thing. There is a peculiar charm in becoming a circuit rider. It is something entirely outside ef any ordinary occupation, especi ally in a frontier country. Ti a veiling from Court House to Court House, hearing suit after suit, criminal and civil, listening to arguments arguments whose force is regu lated by the fee, eloquence that is ever ready to pour forth on receipt of the wel come greenback. Being in company with gentlemen whose rhole mind is occupied by legal technicalities, I tell you, sir, one's mind gets revolutionized, and one meekly sits in wonder at the intricate machinery of law and Is sadly at varience with him self, and perpetually perplexed as to what he is, and what he may come to; wheth er he will die of habeas corpus, or catch the aeire facias or if an epidemic of mains in m comes along nunc pour tune, it one will have to take a dose of lex tcripta or just lay down and die. The Bar is composed of gentlemen who are eminently fitted for any legal' sphere, but I must say there are those who excel and those who do not. Some may be hid ing their light under the bushel, as yet,, till there are those who are as lawyers and advocates should be, perfect almost in their profession, Tne Judge, of whom I have already spoken, occupies his position be cause of his fitness to fill it, and not from favor. I must acknowledge my admira tion of him, not alone as a jurist but as a gentleman par excellence. I am under obligations to him for kind, courteous at tention and treatment, as also to Messrs, Wall and Willis, two of the young and bright lights of the Bar, and the werthy States' Attorney, S. Spark roan, Esq. It is good evidence of a county's serial condition to notice the amount of work on the criminal docket, and a ready inference can be drawn from it. In HilUboro and Folk counties it was very light, and what there was was not of terrible nature. Even down in Manatee county, a place that same one libelled in telling me, it was the home of run away criminals, even there, where no Court had been held for two years, there were but about 6 criminal cases and the worst one was cattle stealing. On the whole the Courts show s very "small prevalance of crime, and even at this the majority of crimes are committed by colored individ uals. I was more than amused at some of the attorneys whose lack of eloquence made them satirical, to degree, and brought down on their unfortunate beads the anathemas of those capable of yielding fhem. The poor unfortunate was told that he came down here from the jungles of Alabama and was admitted to practice where ignorance was a qualification. An other who bad undertaken a case which be could not handle efficiently, on asking of a brother attorney what he should do, was told to advise his client to employ a com petent attorney. It was at Pine Level, Manatee, where I witnessed the first broil in Florida. In a suit the attorneys bad been somewhat vin dictive and it aroused the passion of one of the parties to the suit, and he went for Mr. attorney. The latter shot at his an tagonist but missed him, and then friends intervened and the fuss was over and no body hurt. Manatee county is immediately south of Hillsboro, and is almost entirely nsed as a cattle range. Thousands of the bovine species wander through the woods and praries. The inhabitants are not numer ically strong, but are wealthy as a rule. To own 5,000 head of cattle is about the usual thing, but there are those whose stock numbers 40,000. Good cattle are worth $15 dollars at the wharf so you can estimate the wealth of the people and their annual income from increase of stock. We are now well started on our summer weather and linen is the order of the day. The weather is warm in the sun, but ia the shade and with prevailing breezes, 80 is about the average. The country is in glorious costume now, and flowers innu merable are all around. We too. are en joying the mocking bird. You who have listened to that feathered individual's sojg from the cage, are not aware of what ha can do. Just now is housekeeping time with them, and the aaxious cares of a father is thrust upon the songster. You should hear bim singing to the little folks while mother is off foraging. He sits up on a limb near the nest, and with full note pours forth such a flood of melody that is taken up by other careful fathers all around, until the air is full of their reso nant harmony. He sings all day and at night, in the soft, stilly darkness, snugly ensconced near the nest, his head nnder his wing, fast asleep, dreaming of huckle berries and other good things, Mrs. M. nudges him with her beak and informs him "baby's awake," then, ye gods, hear him surmount the babv's tweakings. With a clear full note, in the hour of quietude and and darkness, he peals forth his srng; all nature is bushed, and tbat alone has sway. Let Apollo and his lute. Pan and his pipes, Theo. Thomas and his orchestra, forever remain dumb atrer that. No tiresome tramp and soft hushaby, no paregoric and squills, but a song of the purest, sweetest melody, it serenades you while it sooths the nestlings into sweet slumbers, and yourself into whistling snores. We have a nest close by our window, and from the way the fellow sings every night, baby is, or the babies are, a very wakeful set. May they ever be so. In the way of local news let me tell you our Telegraph communication is complete. We have an elegant new steamer ArrwelJ, belonging here, and everything is progress ing well. Before I close, let me inform you of an incident that occurred to two of your worthy citizens, Messrs. H. and F. Notwithstanding all that has been said and written of mules, they would make the acquintance of one. As each of them try to cast the onus on the other, I take the two, sides and con dense it. While out on the survey, and 12 miles from here, Messrs. H. and F. had oc casion to come to town. As they had but one pony for the two something else had to be got to carry them and some kind neigh ber lent them a mule. Mule and pony came in town with them alright. Staying until near nicht and ha vine made various purchases, which were duly packed on to tne mule tney set out ior tneir camp, r, F. on the mule. Now Mr. F. had all the confidence in the world in that mule, and to say he was sur prised when the mule raised the center of his back and precipitated his rider oyer his head, would be superfluous. Mr. F. said when he raised the mule was contemplating him with ferward ears, as if to say, ''how came you so." How soon confidence is de stroyed. One single act and that constitn ant oualitv of frieudshiD is forever cone, Mr. F. lost his confidence in mules there and then. Mr H. vainly endeavored to explain it was a mistake, flies and numer ous other things, but F. was resolved. No more mule for him. Then with heroic sac rifice H. changed the pony for the mule and V mlonnnp mora in confidence. H. had just remarked, "F. you don't know how to ride a mule, wnen tne centre oi mat dack came up aeain and F. says H. did a splen did circus performance, but H. says he merely eot down to see tz tne baiter, si though be might have dismounted quickly, H. however mounted mule again. Now that mule evidently was electrical, lor 11. savs he distinctly felt a shock that raised him out of his stirrups, although F. says H. described a parabelic curve. Be it as it may. H. and the mule parted company. The mule in' glee set off at full gallop, throwing up his heels in frantic pleasure. His pack became disorganized, bread - flew one way, butter another, condensed milk became uncondensed, sugar sweetened the air, and there was a coffee trail for a mile. In fact he went in for a communistic dis tribution, letting no place receive more than one deposit. H. and F. ran and hal- loaded, hallooed and ran, and the mule did likewise. As darkness came ocr them shutting out the last traces of fair light. the distant bee haw was all that was left of the mule. Two hours search gave them the rem nants oi their pack, and in about the same state as the Eastern question. They were leit were ten miles to go to camp, plenty te carry, and only a small pony to help them, and a deep creek to cross. They packed the pony and walked to the creek. Here they both mounted the pony to get across to save a wettine. but as the touv bee-an to break in two they got off, toek off their ciotnes, tied them to the pony and waded across. Had the pony got away then, the consequences are too awful to contemplate. Just think, two Adams in a foreign coun try, a country full of thorns and pointed grass ana leaves, but they say this did not occur, and I take their word for it. ' The mule was found tied to a stump next morning, but saddle, blankets and everything was gone, a. ana x . reached camp at early morn ALFRED. Tampa, May 16, '78. KANSAS. Eds. Tel. Several of my friends asked me, before leaving home, to write them and let them know what I think of Kansas, Knowing that the Telegraph has a very general circulation throughout the county at least, I thought the easiest way to reach them all would be to avail myself of its columns, if you will be kind enough to ac cord me the privilege. Our excursien left Cleveland at 7 p. m., April 2, in charge of Mr. Cullver of that place. We arrived at Kansas City, on the 4th, about 10 a. m. Here I left the excur sion whloh suffice it to say, got through to A.insiey all right after a short delay west ef Topeka, caused by the engineers' strike on the A. T. & St. Fee R. R,-to visit some friends in south east Kansas. Kansas City is like a beehive in the eum- mer-time, all bustle and hum. It reminds one of some of the more important places along the Penn. Cea, during the Centen nial. Hera we have to recheck our bag gage to all points west, southwest, north west, north or south, and it is almost im possible to get near the baggage room. We have to take our turns the same as in a barber shop. Kansas City is essentially the head of navigation en the Missouri river for Kansas, In my opinion it is des tined to be a large city in a very few years. The railroads centering here, have now just completed a yery fine, large Union depot, constructed of stone and brick and roofed in with tin and sheet iron. They have also long promenades constructed entirely of iron. The surface of the country in southeast Kansas is quite rough and broken in places. There are a great range of limestone hills found here that can neyer be put under cultivation. There is also a great deal of timber in this part of the State, on the ridges and along the streams, but of small growth, and only sufficient for fencing and fuel where found. Coal is also found in many places. ; The bottom lands are very rich. South -east Kansas as far west as the Arkansas river and for 50 to 75 mile west of it, is the great corn district of the Siate. Corn average in this district from 40 te 45 bushels per acre. Small grains does not do so well here as in ether parts of the Stats. West from this district, beginning with the Medicine Lodge district in Barbour Co. and continuing the whole length of the State, is the great grazing district. Cat tle feed here the year round with very lit tle if any care at all. Dodge City, on the A. T. 4 St. Fe R. R. is the great cattle shipping point for this district and North western Texas. I am told that 200.000 bead were shipped from this point last year. The great wheat belt of the State, I learn, is about 75 to 100' miles wide, running from east to west through th centre of the State, traversed throughout its length by the A. T. & St. Fe and th Kansas Pacific railroads. The largest crops of wheat have been produced along these roads. Ed wards Co., only organized in '74, produced last year 35 bu. of winter wheat per acre as a first crop, having been plowed in the spring and then replowed and sowu iu the fall. Other counties have done equally well, in some instances 56 bu. of wheat per acre has been raised. After the first crop, 30 to 35 bu. per acre is not unusual. Th average yield of several counties in different parts of the State in "76 was 20 bu. of winter and 10 to 12 bu. of spring wheat per acre. But it must be borne in mind that this included all the sod wheat, which of course gives a light yield, only 10 or 12 bu. of winter, and 7 to 8 bu. of spring wheat per acre. When it is proper ly put in on "old ground," that is after the first crop the general average is about 30 bu. of winter, and 20 bu. of spring wheat per acre. Oats, Barley and Rye do equally welL Spring wheat, as you will see from th abeve does not do well here, the rainfall not coming at the right season. The greatest rainfall here is usually in June, July and August while soring wheat requires it in April and May. I do not like the country immediately adjacent to the R. R. between Kansas City and Topeka. A great deal of it appears to be low, and is covered with quite an undergrowth of timber that would require a great deal of labor and expense to clear off before the plow could be used, and the timber would be worthless, as it is too small for use. It will not be necessary for me to make particular mention of Topeka, the capital of the State, as it is about as well known as New York. The main part of the city lies up on an elevation about one half or three quarters of a mile north of the A. T. & SL Fe R. R. I stopped here one day. It appears to be quite lively, but they say, "times are not as they were in days gone by," even in Topeka. The office of the Topeka U. S. Land District is located here. The State House and part of the insane ayslum are the only State institutions lo cated here. Coal is rained here sufficient for home consumption. The repair shops of the A. T. & St. Fe railroads are located here. Emporia, a very nice, flourishing little Tillage of about 1500 inhabitants, situated about 55 miles southwest of Topeka, at the crossing of the A. T. & St. Fe and the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railroads is the next place of importance. The State Normal schools are located here. Newton, the next place of importance, also a flourishing little village of about 1000 inhabitants is situated about 75 miles southwest of Emporia, From this place a branch road runs south about 30 miles to Wichita, a lively little village of about 2,600 inhabitants, situated at th mouth of the Little Arkansas, where it empties into the Arkansas river. Coal is being mined all along the A. T. & St. Fe railroad as far west as Newton. The coal is rather "lean" but it answers very well for house use. In this county Harvey Marion, McPherson, Rice, Bar ton, Ellis and in several other counties, there are large settlements of Russian Germans, called Mennonites. These are a religious sect, their founder, Menno Simonis, being a contemporary of Martin Luther. They left Russia because of their being averse te military duty. There are about 10,000 now in the State. Hutchiason, another flourishing little village of about 800 inhabitants, situated about 30 miles west of Newton, is the first town on the Arkansas river reached by this road. I think there can be no objection made to the lay of the country, or to the land, by tha most fastidious, between Topeka and this place. It is like looking out upon th mighty ocean after a storm, when the whitecaps have ceased to fly and you can see nothing but the great swells and de pressions, only the swells here are further apart and the depressions more extended, Oue can get no good idea of it without seeing it. The lay of the country about here is the same, and as far west, as the west line of the State, and even beyond, well into Colorado. But the soil from here on west, differs in different localities. Between Hutchinson and Great Bend, a distance of about 50 miles, there is in the immediate vicinity of the railroad a great deal of alkali land, great patches may be seen on either side of the road tbat look like a board covered with white frost, However, all the crops I saw along the road looked very well. Great Bend is a flourishing little town of about 2,000 inhabitants, situated on the north aid of th great bend of the Ar kansas river. Here I tarried about a week and drove out both north and south from 15 to 20 miles in company with Mr. and Mrs. Prescott of this place, formerly from Syracuse, New York, with whom I was somewhat acquainted, and from whom I got a deal of information.
