Those who expectsd the war la the east
to cause an immediately increased demand
for American breadstuff's, as well as an ad.
vancein their price, have thus far been
disappointed. England has certainly im
ported more wheat Ind floor since Russia
declared war aeainst Turkey than before,
but Russia at the satno time has increased
its exports of these same commodities to
England in a wonderful degree. For in
stance, the return of the British board of
trade show.that the importations of wheat
frem Russia into England , durinc the
month of June last amounted to $5,140,
000, while duriog the corresponding month
of 1878 their value was only $863,000.
The London Economist, in discussing
these figures, attributes the compartively
large supplies of wheat recieved in Eng
land from the east, "to the effect of the
war in hastening the dispatch of all availa
ble grains from the disturbed territories,
some of it coming by rail through Germany
by the way of Marseilles." "That it was
the war," the editor of the Economist
continues, "and not the recent rise in
prices which gave this impulse to the con
signments of grain from abroad, may be
gathered from the fact that the month's
imports ot whtat from the undisturbed
countries, notably America, are much less
instead of greater, notwithstanding the
high prices." Another cause assigned for
the increased exports from Russia is the
depreciation of the domestic paper money
in that country, Paper roubles, which
were worth thirty pence each in exchange
able value wnen the war broke out are
worth only twenty-four pence now a dep
reciation ot 20 per cent.
Editor Roberta Defends hia history
From The Utlc Herald.
The Hartford t'ourant, in a.very cordia!
notice of an address delivered atOrislany,
takes exception to the statoment that at
FortStaowix the stars and stripes were
"for the first time raised in victory over
British colors;" and adds that "other rec
ords hare it that the order creating the stars
and stripes was not promulgated until later
and that the first unfolding of that flag was
at Burgoyne's surrender."
On the 14th of June, 1777, congress for- i
mally "Rrtolwd, That the flag of the
thirteen United States be thirteen stripes,
alternate red and white; that the union be
thirteen stars, white in the blue field, rep
resenting a new constellation." Thus it is
indisputable that the stats and stripes had
been adopted as the flag of the republic
before the siege of Fort Stanwix. It is not
claimed that any official order on the sub
ject had been received at that frontier fort
on thi oth ot August, 1777. ism tne tes-
timouv of Colonel Willett. who led the
sortie, in his published narrative, is posi
tive that the stars and stripes were floated
abovo the British colors on that day. IIj
also states that the flag was made of shirts
of tho garrison and a blue camlet cloak
captured from the British at Peekskill; and
a daughter of Gen. Schuyler is authority
for the statement that the red came from
the cloak of a woman in the fort. Al
though "the order wa not promulgated
until later," and although the flag was not
furnished by the War Department, the
proof in conclusive that the stars and stripes
were lifted in triumph at rort Manwix on
the Cih day of August, 1777, and Burgoyne
did not surrender until more than two
months later. The only pattern the gar
rison had was doubtless the resolution of
congress, and that enhances the credit of
Ganscvoort and his men who first lifted the
stars and stripes in victory.
The New Craze.
From The Troy Whig.
But if Congress will take into its posses
sion ull the great lines of road, the railroad
managers will be men appointed by gover
nor and the railroad caVital will be the pro
perty of the government, The danger ap
prehended by the Tribune could not arise,
for the government would own and control
the railroads. The vast power of railroad
corporations would be extinguished
for there could be no longer any such
corporation!!. In Russia, in Germany
inPlfcigiuni and in trance, railroads are
owned and operated by government, with
what profit to the state treasuries we do
not know, bat with great advantage to the
public. Our government could take the
roads and issue to the stockholders a cer
tificate entitling the holder to a certain
number of shares, and guaranteeing to pay
to the holder four per cent annually for
ever. The stock would become a favorite
investment. It would not be necessary for
the government to purchase every railroad
lu the country. The trunk roads, however,

Superior to any Eneltsh or American. A DIPLO
MA was awarded to this Magnesia, by the American
institute m ikm. . ,
Thia very useful and elegant r reparation is used
as an aperient antic-acid in dyspepsia complaints
attended with acidity with very great Denent. li
has the advantage over common Magnesia, in being
dissolved, and therefore not being liable to accu
mulate iu the bowels. It is decidedly superior to
Carbonate of Soda or Potash, ou account of its
aperient a nalitv.
This solution oi KtagneBia is xouna particularly
beneficial as a Dleasina sedative and aperient, in ail
cases of irritation, or acidity of the stomach, f ebtlle
complaints, infantile disorders, or sea-eicknese.
An ounceortwo of this eolation speedily removes
heartburn, acril eructations and sourness, or irreg
ular digestion.
The solution is of itself an aperient, but its laxa
tive properties can be much augmented by taking
with it, or directly alter it, a mile lemon jutc, mix
ed with tasar and water, or even with cream of tar
tar; in this manner a very agreeable eft'erreseent
draught can oe saxeiy taken at any time curing i
fever onsthiret. I
The antisceptic qualities of this solution, o win'
to the presence of so much carbonic acid, have been
found very valuable in putrid and other fever. As
a lotion for tho mouth, it sweetens the breath, and
the Magnesia cleans the teeth from tartar. . -
The solution has almost invariably succeeded in
removing fits, spasms and headaches to which deli-:
rate persons are subject from acids and crudities of
the stomach and bowels.
' he attention of the pubMc is particularly direct
ed to the following certificates of physicians and
other persons who have used the Magnesia :

Vegetable Compound
. Established 1S43.
Made at the olden Anvil manufactory in this
country. All English Anvils, after a time, become
hollowing on the face by continued hammering in
use, on account of the fihrous nature of the wrought
iron cansinir it to '-settle," under the steel. I
Kut the body of the tiagle Anvil being of crys-
wi.Mxen iron, pnen seining cannot occur; ana tne
steel face therefore remains perfectly true. Also.
it has the great advantage, that being of a more
solid material, and. consequently, with less re
bound, the piece forged receives the FULL effect
ot the hammer, instead of a part of it being wasted
by the rebound, as with a wrought iron Anvil.
more woric can tnerefore oe done on this Anvil
with a hammer one-fifth lighter than required for a I
wroneht iron Anvil which is more elastic !
The working surface is in one piece of Jssor's
best tool uast Stkel, accurately ground, bard
enea and given the proper temper for the heav
work. The born is of tough untempered steel
The cast steel surface is warranted to be
oughly welded and not to come off.
