Election this year comes on Nov. 5th. Dr. R. V. Pierce, the great patent medicine man, has been nominated for Congress by the Republicans of Buffalo, N Y. The town of Edenburg, Pa., was almost totally destroyed by fire last Sunday morning. 225 houses were burned including the business por tion of the place. A late Constantinople dispatch says the port has received informa tion that the Russians have recom menced marching on Adrianople. The Turks have mounted guns on the Constantinople lines. The Republicans of the Senatorial district composed of Nicollet and Renville counties held their conven tion at X.Brunner's Hotel, in West Newton, yesterday "but up to the time we go to press we were unable to learn who received the nomina tion. The Greenback-National party has so far elected three members of the next Congress, but all three are Democrats and will vote as the Democratic Congressional caucus dictates. The Republicans of Meeker coun ty last week adopted the following sensible resolution: Resolved, That we object to the present mode of grading wheat, and that we reccommend our senator and representative to do all in their pow er to accomplish some legislation at the earliest possible day to correct the errors that now exist in regard to grading wheat. The expedition that was senl out against the Cheyennes has proved a complete failure, so far as the cap ture of the renegade Indians is con cerned.It failed because it was illy fitt ed out, and the unreliable character of the scouts furnished the expedition The savages ^baffled the troops at every point, and led them into the Sand Hills, from which they might never have emerged. Thornburg's command was without water for 70 hours. Their rations had also given out two days before they made a junction with Carlton's command, QBOujj ia^Ba^iTra in VOLUME I.

In New Orleans there were 988 new cases and 340 deaths during the past week. Total cases in the .city, 11,- 206 total deaths, 3,400. For the week ending Oct. 10th there were 157 deaths in Memphis total deaths, 2,784. While the above reports are bad enough, the greatest fatality ex ist in the suberbs. The relief steam er on its mission of mercy has reach ed Vicksburff. During a performance last Thurs day night at the Coliseum Theater, Liverpool, England, which is now used as a music hall, a fight occurred under the gallery. The audience hearing, but being unable to see the disturbance, became alarmed. The cry of fire was raised and the people rushed to the doors and some slid down the pillars of the gallery upon the heads of the occupants otthe pit. Thirty-five men and lads and two women were sufficated and many persons were severely injured. By an article printed elsewhere it will be seen that Hon. Henry Pceh ler has written to a gentleman in Dakota county acknowledgeing that is in sympathy with the ge reenback party, and declares is support of the main prin ciples of their creed. W are also re liably informed that he has written letters to hard-money Democrats, who have sounded him on the finan cial question, disclaiming any green back sentiments, and assured them that his sympathy was for honest money. Mr. Pcehler's financial po sition seems to be "anything" to beat Major Strait. The election on Tuesday, the 8th inst., in the four States of Ohio, In diana, Iowa and West Virginia, did not result so largely favor of the Republicans as the first telegrams led us to believe. In Ohio the Republican majority tor the State ticket is from 8,000 to 10,000,but through tne gerrymander ing of theDemocratic Legislature last winter the Nationals and Democrats have secured eleven out of the twen ty Congressmen. In Indiana the Republicans elect ed six and the Democrats and Na tionals seven Congressmen. The senate stands 24 Democrats, 25 Re publicans and 1 National. I the house the Republicans will probably have 45, Democrats 51, Nationals 4. The Democrats and Nationals will have a majority of 10 on joint ballot, which secures the election of Voor hees for Senator. Iowa has gone Republican of course, but the Greenbackers and Democrats have succeeded in elect ing two of their candidates for Con gress. West Virginia, which has herto fore been represented in Congress by a solid Democratic delegation, has elected one, and probably two, of the Republican candidates for Con gress. The Chicago Times (Ind.) when commenting upon the result, says: "Stated in brief, the result shows a large increase of the administration party strength in Ohio, in Iowa and West Virginia/while in benighted Indiana the administration party "holds its own." Thus the fiat lu nacy, suddenly risen to a formidable political force in New England, the natural home of hard-money senti ment, is beaten and effectively checked on its own western ground by the administration party, whose timid chiefs did not know and were afraid to trust the strength of that party by taking an honest, open, unequivocal stand in favor of fiscal honesty. Pflehler a Greenbacker. ,Ns* A^ g 4JH 'ft- Hastings New Era (Ind Hon. Henry Pcehler has written a letter to Cook, of this city, in which he acknowledges himself in sympathy with the greenback party, and declares his support of the mam principles of their creed. So it ap pears that the two elements must necessaVily combine to fight Strait. How will this be received by all true Democrats? *& **fe i^i, STRAIT VS. PCBHLER. W are glad to notice that the Republican papers throughout the district, as far as we have seen, with out an exception are according to Mr. Pcehler, the Democratic candi date for member of Congress, the respectful and courteous treatment which one gentleman deserves from another. W are sorry, though not surprised, in noticing that the Dem ocratic papers throughout the dis trict, with now and then an honor able exception, are conducting their canvass against Mr. Strait in the usual Democratic style of personal detraction and abuse. The St. Paul Grlobe having struck the key note, all the lesser hounds join the cry. Here is a choice specimen from the Globe of the 7th inst: "Hod Stiait,the National banker,wlio wants to go to Congiess from the Sec ond Distuct, is a man who will not stop at dishonesty if it puts money ia his purse." Now the writer of that paragraph knows very well that H. Strait is an honorable high-toned gentle man a man whose word in business circles is as good as his bond a man who has made a record as a represen tative in Congrefcs alike honorable to himself and the State which he in part represents. The author of this dirty little screed is not unadvised of the fact that Major Strait has won for himself the reputation of being one of the most efficient and success ful workers in the house. The Glebe man is fully posted in all that our representative has done for his con stituents in procuring the passage of bills for their benefit and relief in various ways, and he knows that his experience and the knowledge ac quired during the last six years, not only of the needs of his constituents, but of the means to be used in ob taining such legislation as they re quire, renders him an hundred fold the better man of the two to repre sent us in Congress, Yet Henry Pcehler, the man who would be as much out of place on the floor of the House of Representatives in Wash ington as a fourteen-year-old-boy who had never been outside the shadow of his own roof-tree is ex tolled by the Globe for no other quali fication than that of his being a Democrat. Personally we have nothing to say against Henry Pcehler. We believe him to be an honorable gentleman, a good man for his place, and a man of influence in Sibley County, but in Congress he would be a mere ci pher, nominated by his party be cause he was a German and had mo ney to spend in the canvass. W know what Strait has done and can do for us we know that Henry Pceh ler has not the first qualification that Major Strait does not possess in a greater degree. We know there can be nothing gained by making the exchange we do not know that much may not be lost. W cannot close this article with out administering to the editor of the Globe a portion of the dose which he prepared for us: "When a party is reduced to the necessity of maligning and misrepresenting an opponent in direct defiance of well known and established facts, its con dition is indeed desperate."Glencoe Register. Russia andTurkeynot yet in Peace. A dispatch from Constantinople, correcting the statement of October 8th, says: Prince Labanoff informs Savfet Pasha that the Russians will retain Adrianople, not only un til the treaty of Berlin is fulfilled, but until a treaty is signed confirm ing those parts of the San Stefano treaty which are not effected by the decisions of the Berlin congress. This incident has caused some alarm in diplomatic cirles, but the corres pondent has reason to believe the ob ject of the demand is merely to- has- ten the Porte, which is lagging over some deputation's. A dispatch from Pera reports Prinje Labanoff told Savfet Pasha that until the supple mentary treaty is signed a state of war exists. LINDEN CORRESPONDENCE. Editor Review: With due regard to your host of cor respondents, and with the hope you will not frown upon me, I make my debut, assuring you I am no bard. Farmers are busy turning over their stubbled fields, burning what they did not harvest, preparatory to plowing, husking the coin, and in a general way preparing for the visits of the hoary haired old gent Jack Frost, thinking h will be severe, and earlyjfreeze up everything. Politicians are in the field. Linden will acknowledge the services of our present officers, by polling a large 'ma- jority of votes in their favor on election day. Manderfeld is making herculean ef forts to cany the county. Paulson, I am told, is saddling his political war hoise and intends to give his opponents a hard run. We want Maj. Strait in Washington to keep an eye on the Southern war claims, and 0. C. Brandt in St. Paul to watch Liberty Hall. ObituaryWe lament the sad fate of our "portly looking gentleman," whose hair had become giay in the seivice to the public of this community. Our heaits beat waimly, and he had our sympathy, when seen trudging along to some popular resort, or standing in an obscure place, with his memoran dum book and stub pencil, taking notes of the doings and happenings, to be scattered, bioadcast, through the col umns of the widely circulating Review. His last moments were painful to witness. Amidst convulsive shudders, he died of the effect of the "bulldoz ing" he received from ye editor's quill for writing balderdash. (Ibid.) SLEEFYEYE, OCT. 10, 18T8. ABOUT RESUMPTION. Written for the Review. Let it be borne in mind, as before stated, resumption means that when the holder ot a greenback wishes to exchange it for com he can do so. He is not obliged to make the exchange but if he does he may receive .for it a dolar in coin. 1. Now the obligation of the govern ment to resume specie payment is one thing and its ability is another. The government may assume an obligation beyond its abilitv to discharge. As. the day of resumption nears is theie any evidence that the government can fulfill its promise? Certainly there is. There is already, and has been tor some time, more than enough coin in thfr Treasury for resumption purposes and still there is considerable time for the accumulation of more. The question of the nation's ability to resume is off from debatable giound. 2. Now it is a noticeable fact that as it becomes more and more certain that resumption will take place the value of the greenback increases and has been but one-fourth of a cent on a dol lar as good as gold, Or stated a little differently, the nearer we come to re* sumption the greater is the value of the laborer's noneythe greenback: and the nearer in value it becomes to the rich man's moneygold and silver. Actual resumption will give one man's money the same purchasing power as another mans. In all this there is nothing that indicates at all that the day of resumption is ''the day of doom' for the nation. 3. There are those who think that the effort to resume specie payments contracts the currency, of which there is not now a sufficiency, and so is one cause of the hard times. But as the act of resumption does not mean con traction, so neither in providing for re sumption is there contraction or the effect of making provision for resump tion. On the other hand the revival of business and prosperity has attended the process of resumption. The causes of the hard times and the numerous failures of the past few months belong to the inflation and panic period which andedates the resumption period .There is now i* circulation more than three times the amount of currency that there was prior to the war. In 1870 business was moving at full tide, but there was less currency by over eighty one million dollars than in 1874 the year, of the panic. There is a great contrast between 1870 and 1878 in trade and business when the contrast in cur rency in circulation is not near so marked. All this shows that the in sufficiancy of currency but to the other causes. The remedy is not then in in flation but in something else. There is more paper in circulation than the demand of trade calls for hence the banks have been obliged to reduce the volume of their notes. It does not fol low that because men can't get hold of money that there is none to get hold of. Resumption then has nothing to dfo with the hard times. Resumption will increase the volume of cunency it will increase the, value of the green^ back and naturally'cause better times* O. P. CHAMPLINw -*rrWMrff 1 H^^*^" LINDEN, Oct. 14th, 1878.
