It will bo seen by this comparison that many articles are one hundred .per cent., but most of them from two to three hundred, higher than I hey were five years ago Yet some of the farmers and others who now receive these fabulous prices for the pro ducts of their labor, complain at high prices, If the comparison were extended farther into the cost of clothing, dry goods and articles indispensable to the household we should find an equal or larger advance. Statesman. THE NATIONAL WEALTH. It is estimated that eight millions of coal More Trouble in South America War' ; Inaugurated between Chili and Spain From the New Vorlt Herald The Spanish Admiral Pareja has actually inaugurated another civil war in South A merica by the blockade of Chilian ports and the Congress of Chili has declared war against Spain. President Johnson, in what he said Io the Minister of the Argentine Republic on Thursdny, exprcsd pretty distinctly the interest the Utk0l States has in all these South Amerioan troubles. He expressed the "special favor and affec tion" with which we "regard the republics on this conlirent ;" and while he regretted the miseries that wnr must inevitably bring, he hoped also that the issue "wculd involve no detriment to the cause of republicanism.'' This expresses the national thought as to the late of South American Republics, while it intimates to (lie Argentines that their present relations to the empire of Bra zil, in war against a sister republic, neces sarily lessens our interest in their tvalfare. In the case of the war just begun against Chili, there is no such cause to qualify our interest ; and all our sympathies with an American republic at war against a Euro pean monarchy are even intensified by the arrogance the assertion that might should make right with which Spnin has entered upon this contest. It had been supposed that the dilliculiy between the two Govern ernmculs was amicably adjusted some time ago ; but the Spanish Admiral, arriving at Valpuraiso on September 17 with a con sideruble fleet, announced in the most brusque manner, that his government en tirely repudiated the'nrrngement that had been made, and authorized him to commence hostilities at once, if certain things were not dune by the Chilian Government. The Unties required were that Chili shotihl make certain explanations ol supposed out rases to Spanish dignity, and Balule the ".ot Foutiicomiso. We understand that ; ..ors of the Cahoka Oil Company have suspended for the present, as the in dications of the presence of oil do not seem to increase as the boring progresses. The gas which first attracted the company to that locality, still continues to blow off, and some of them, who pretend to know, think that oil will yet be found in connection with the source from which it is derived. The company have expended about five thousand dollars in the attempt, and do not feel like doing more under the circumstances. We learn that very favorable offers have been ade to citizens residing near the Incalitv of the well to induce them to continnn ih Hurts, which if successful would be of much advantage to the neighborhood.

Mr. King, who has enjoyed no little prominence in party politics, was born in or near Og- ensburg, St. Lawrence county, New York. He graduated nt Union College, and adopted the profession of la x, which he practiced with considerable success until within n few years past, when he relired altogether irom llie bar. He was a member (Dem ocratic) of the New York Slate Assembly from 1S35 to 183S. From 18-13 to 1847 he was a member of the lower house nf Congress, and also from 1S49 to 1S53. He was Ihe Republican candidate for Secretary of Slate of New York in 1855, when the party first assumed a distinct oremization in that State. In 1857 he was elected to the United States Senate to succeed Hpffl- ilton Fish, which office he held to ex piration of his term, March 4th, 1863. Since Mr. Johnson's accession to to the Presidency he was appointed Collector M the port of New York, rice Simeon Dra per, an office esteemed to be worth $100:- 000 a year. f Republican IRih Wre learn that on Friday last, two horse thieves, from Iown, made their way into this State. Three persons, the const,,!,!,. he owner of the stolen horse, and a friend. pursued, and came upon them in the vicin ity of Laplata, in this counly. On demand, one of the thieves surrender d; the other resisted and fired on the pursuirc parties. and wounded in succession all three the constable cn the top of the head; a second was shot in the bowels, and the third, the ball entered the left cheek, and came nut back of the right ear. The alarm being given, the Snraged ci izens turned cut, captured, and executed both thieves. At our hit odyices, the wounded meti were all living, though two were consid eredvery dangerous.

Every effort will be made to render the new journal generally acceptable. It is al most needless to say that every thing cal culated In (he slightest degree to sully the bright surface of youthful purity, will be excluded from its columns. This, though indispensible, is a negative virtue; it is also hoped that those iu charge of this new enterprise will succeed in presenting to the pubtio weekly, a well-digested sum wary of domestio and foreign news, a selec tion from what is most valuable in the ephemeral literature of Europe and Amer ica, with such editorial t'omments and criti cisms as will add real interest and Value to their columns. Arrangements will be made to secure the co-operation of correspondents of ability in the leading" cities of Europe In short it is proposed to offer to the Culhulio population of the West a weekly newspaper, which, while by no means prominently religious or controversial, will meet a want which has long been felt, serve as an organ dl Catholio sentiment, a medi um of communication among the Catholics of the West, and prove a welcome visitor in he family circle.

The ball shattered his arm, and ampu tation being deferred too long, he died af tcr lingering three or four weeks. Ha leaves a wile and three children. The white population of th? District of Columbia is to the black as four to nriA. but the statistic of the War Department show that two black soldiers were raised to one white. The whites furnished 1.7.10 soldiers, almost entirely by drafting; the blacks 3,900, and nearly all by volunteer ing; yet during the war it was impossible lor a negro to leave this city to go North without a passport. We learn I ruin the Nashville Banner that the small-pox has found Its way into Nash ville in a dangerous and even dreadful form That in a miseruble building on the bank of the river, erected as a temporary shelter for patients put off from steamboats, now lie sixty-three human beings in all stages of this loathsome disease white and black) mingled together. The Monitor says it regrets to say that the same frightful disessa exists in Mur- freesboro, and it is still Increasing to an alarming extent. At a meeting of the officers of the "Chil- licothe and Brunswick R. R.

A reward of $500 has been offered for the recovery of the body of Hon. Preston King. The bottom of the river where it is supposed to be lying is being carefully dragged.
