SEDALIA TUESDAY, MAY 7, 1878. The war news from Europe is be ginning to be interesting. The Florida electoral vote is to be investigated by Congress, when the truth will come out. John Morrissey, the renowned ex. pugilist, gambler and Senator from New York, died at Saratoga last night The St. Louis authorities are begin ning to be alarmed at the Socialists, who lately held a meeting under the red flag. Berlin has a population of 804,000 Protestants, for whom there are but 34 churches and 95 ministers that is one shepherd to a flock of 8.-163 eheep. Gov. Irwin of California does not believe in hanging on Good Friday. He reprieved John Runk, a murderer sentenced to be hanged on that day, giving as a reason "a respect for the religious sentiments of a very large number of citizens, that a revered re ligious holiday should not be profaned by fixing upon it as a day for the infliction of capital punish ment." Among the curiosities of the Paris Exposition will be the treasures of the Prefecture of Police, which include portraits of ministers, lieutenants, and prefects; also, of eminent criminals and reproductions of burglary tools. Burglary having now become a science, delegations of the trade will doubtless be sent from other countries to see if France supplies a wrinkle or two. Russia cannot raise a loan in Berlin. Some of the London newspapers ex press dissatisfacaion with the shilly shally policy of Austria. The Russian official organs allege that Russia is willing to accept the broadest possible basis for the programme of Congress. There is some apprehension of Russian privateering, in British shipping cir cles, and continental merchants are refusing to consign their goods on ves sels under the British flag. From the east Indies we learn that native troops in the British service are arriving dai ly at Bombay, to be transported to Europe and employed agaiust Russia in event of war. By an official statement it is shown that the decline of the American mer cantile marine began half a century ago, and though accelerated and aug mented by the civil war, it is not doubted that had peace prevailed from 1861 to 1865 the shipbuilding interest would not have been much better in condition to-day. It is suggested by some that the principal cause of our weakness in the ocean carrying trade is due to the wonderful increase in the ateim marine of Britain. The vessels built on the Clyde, of iron, being swift aud safe, have taken the places of hundreds of our slow wooden sail ing crafts, and have thus put our ma rine architecture out of reach of trade. This decline continued under law and high tariffs, and has never been checked until recently, when the Delaware has been transformed into the "Clyde of America," and we are launching at Chester and Philadel phia iron and steel steamships superior to any afloat. We now rival in this kind of- ship construction with the British, and a year or two hence we shall be able to boastof the best iron steam mercantile marine on the ocean. That is our goal, and if our ship builders are encouraged as they should be it will soon be reached. .Speaking of Senator Cockrell's war claims bill, the Republican says : Sen ator Cockrell goes to work in a straight forward, business-like way to secure an adjustment ot the war claims of his State against the general government. His bill, passed by the Senate, Mon day, does not make an appropriation for the payment of these claims ; it merely provides that the secretary of the treasury shall examine them and ascertain whether they are just or not, and report to Congress, from time to time, the result of his examinations. The claims in question are founded on the action of the State in furnishing men and supplies to the Union armies during the war for which no payment has ever been received from the gov ernment. The theory of Senator CockreU's lull is that if the secrctarv of the treasury finds the claims to be just he will so report to congress, and that body will feel bound to make pro vision for paying them. There has been a great deal of fraud attempted in connection with these claims, but the bulk of them are just. Adjt. Gen. Bingham fearlessly exposed the frauds three years ago, and therebv gave a guaranty of the State's up right course in business. It will be an easy matter to sift out the fraudu lent claims from the honest ones; in deed it is not probable the former will ever be presented after the merciless exposure they received from Gen. Bingham. But the honest ones ought to be paid, and Senator Cockreli'a bill is the first step towards having it done. There does not seem the least hkeli- hood that the Paris Exhibition will be finished before July, at the earliest. France is more backward than most of its guests.

The Colorado beetle has made good his landing on the coast of Glamorgan shire, Wales. He may prove far more formidable than the Baslii-Bazouks in Thessaly. He is not so. cruel, but he is far more rajiacious. Since the suicide of Sultan Abdul Assiz in 1876, Turkey has had two Sultans, five Ministers, forty Cabinet Ministers, one constitution, ona Parlia ment, one war, lost three-fourths of her provinces, and been forced iuto bankruptcy. Gov. Emory of Utah says that polygamy is on the decliue among the Mormons, not through any change of sentiment, but because the wives have taken to extravagance in dress. More than one wife is now an expensive lux ury in Salt Lake. j Boston law says that a full loaf of bread shall weigli two pounds, and smaller loaves shall be either three quarters, half, or a quarter of the full loaves in weight, each size to be marked for precisely what it is.

Still, the' lack justification in the eyes of the world. England, being isolated as to territory and without immediate inter ests, except in common with the bal ance of Europe, in the countries af fected by Russia's success in the late war, cannot justify her war prcpara- tions without satisfaction to the bal ance of the Powers. This from the New York Sun is rather "sourkastic" "The Supreme CoifK of the State coming to the cue of victimized taxpayer," is the hearting ot an article 111 the St. .Louis Timet. The "victimized taxpayers" 5 are the residents of a number of towns m Missouri who obtained monev from 3 other people by the sale of town bonds, used the money, and now don't want to nsiv t.li hmnlhnl.Ipis: The Snnreme Court of the State has come to the rescue of the j debt-shirkers by pro- I.' 1 , nouncing the act under authority of which the bonds were issued unconsti tutional. Hence the triumphant head lines in the St Louis paper. Too much statutory law and official corruption have impelled the people of twenty-six States to order their Legis latures to meet biennially instead of annually, and there is very little doubt, that the remaining Commonwealths! will follow suit in the course of the J next five years. This is the outcome ' of a new spirit af federalism that lias j been growing in this country for the past ciguieeu j ears, xi tavors ine en- actment onlyof general laws, alike in all States a unification of the rules of 1 action that must ultimately render all local statutes simply reflective of a Federal law system, which conforms as nearly to the common law as possible. The new order of things gives such general satisfaction thus far that some of the Western statesmen are agitating the propriety of having the National Congress hold biennial sessions, to be gin as soon after the election as possi ble, so that the will of the people might make immediate impress on all the laws enacted. Millions of dollars would be saved by this change, and we should, no doubt, have law enough, and be governed enough, too.

The buildings are well advanced, but the exhibitors are tardy with their goods. The American and English departments are among those nearest complete. The circus isn't as lively as twelve mouths ago. Hayes was then re,ady -a mm I to talk on all occasions ; now lie is . loth to talk on an v. Then he was iUlrrhlg it yorlht South, East and West ; now, with the skies lowering West, East, South, and North, he only makes two successive runs into Pennsylvania, where, however, he is shunned by his old political friends, and has to rely on those of Purio Welsh. The leap into Niagara's foaming cat aract has again been made, and an other man added to the loug list of men who have sought death in the roaring torrent. Guides never tire of telling of disappointed men aud heart broken women who have Hung them selves into the rapids, to rise again no more. There is a fascination about the falls that tempts many a strong minded person to make the terrible leap. Moreover, this method omni cide is so tragic, so absolutely certain, so mock-heroic if the term may lie applied to self-destruction that the details are always interesting. The chief poiut at issue between England and Russia is thus stated bv the London Time.: "It is the partition of Turkey that Russia desires now ; it was the partition of Turkey that she desired at the time of the Crimean war. Against such policy we con tended then and are contending now." The Time does uot seem to think it w 11. . ; proper tor Jtigiaiwi to suggest a scheme for the adjustment of this dif ference. On this point it declares: ''It would be futile and inconsistent with our position to propose any scheme until the main principle of European control has been conceded, withuut which no scheme could acquire validity or sanction." The House has taken up the legis lative, judicial and" executive appro priation bill. The amount apportioned this year is 14,735,000 which is about S682.000 less than in 187b, and $714,- UUU less than in lUt i.

The election is to take place May 14. The credit of the town is first-rate so good in fact that it ought not to pay over G per cent, on its debts. The saving by the proposed rerunning would ne COW a year. Some time ago the count court of Boone county submitted to the people a similar proposition that of refunding its 8300,000 bonds, now bearing 8 per cent, interest, in other bonds bearing 6 per cent The sav ing would have been $6,000 per an num. But strangely enough the peo ple took little interest in the matter, and the proposition failed through a lack of votes. It onght o have been adopted. Boone county is (00 sound, solvent and prompt a debtor to be paying 8 per cent, when 6 per cent is the measure of value of good secur ities. It is proposed that the question be re-submitted to the people at the November election. Schleicher of Texas wauts Congress to ask Hayes to keep at least 5,000 United States troops on the Kio Grande, and to authorize them to cross into Mexico if the Mexican bor derr misbehave ihonirelvcs. John O'Connor, of the Ohio Legis lature, has resigned, thus virtually confessing that he is identical with Three fingered Jack, formerly of the Michigan enilentiary. The receiver of the stolen Presidency should follow Three-fingered Jack's example.

In fact, they were stolen expressly for him. More than this, he sent men for the very purpose of stealing them. Is not the receiver then, as bad as the thief? And when the thief confesses aud would fr.in make restitution il he could, but the receiver refuses to sur render the plunder, is lie not worse than the thief? THE GREAT FRAUD OF 1876.

At that hour the gentlemen appeared at the start ing place accompanied by two or three friends to get them oir in good style. At 4:20 the four men started out. two 011 each side of the street, in order not to attract the attention of the public. The route was straight out Washing ton avenue to the Olive street plank road, aud thence to Mount Olive, the distance by that route being eight and one-half miles, as surveyed by Mr. Pilzman. Ine parties all wagered that they could make the trip within two hours, ami the agreement between them was that the man who reached Mc. Olive hist should nay for a dinner for the four. A hack accompanied the party. The pedestrians reached Grand avenue in a pretty good con dition, one of them lieiug about one third of a block behind the others, and the only incident that far having beeu a little scene with a corpulent German lady whom one of the party attempted to run Aver at the corner of Tenth street.

But the lagging man did not go much further before he called for the hackman.

Precisely at 6:02 p. in. the leading man iu the race walked into town oi Mt.
