TnK garden spots of the globe seem to be marked out this year as the campaign ing grounds of the fiends of destruction. The beautiful vale of Cashmere, the Eden of these latter days, has been rendered desolute by earthquakes, and now.Seville, fairest of all the Castilian provinces, rich In grape and olive, where voluptuous music stirs the twilight echoes; and the ' merry dance, where the dark eyes of the senoritas Bash at gay gallants, land of song and poetry and love there has the dark scourge set up its standard and filled street and lane and grove with its awful horrors. Scores of victims of the disease drop and die in the streets, where, in many cases, they re main hours before they are gathered up at night for a hurried and unceremonious burial in a common trench. The people attribute the visitation to divine wrath, and wear amulets to preserve them from the disease. The priests and sisters of charity are assiduous night and day in attending to the wants of the sufferers. The archbishop has gold his equipages in order to obtain funds for relief measures, and has offered his palace as a hospital The blight is on the land, aud hands are raised in suppliauce when they ought to be dived into soapsuds.

The republican press is visibly weaken ing its attacks upon the acts of the ad ministration. Wilh only three exceptions none of them find themselves able to fol low the programme of general detraction they had marked out for themselves. Kx cept these three all of them feel con strained to faint praise of some of the ag gressive acts of the president and his cab' inet They are impelled to this change of base by the signs, so plain that he who runs may read, of the popularity of these measures of reform with the people. It is a people's president and a people'! cabinet which is now in control of public affairs. The people will always approve honest and faithful administration of the functions of the government, and just measures bravely entered into will gathe strenL'th from public approval. He who, being in power, dares do right, can alwav be sure of the support of the popular arm. In the aggressive fight of the govern ment against the cattle barons the people are on the side of the president. The people approve of the action of the president in issuing a proclamation against fencing in the public domain and declaring that the lands belonging to the people shall be protected. The people approve of the action of the secretary of the treasury in abolishing sinecures, in regulating the whisky pool, and in putting a stop to the abuses in the coast and geodetic survey. The people endorse the action of Secre tary Whitney in ridding the navy depart-, ment of the incubus of John Hoach and his devious ways. The people are on the side of Attorney General Garland for his righteous advice upon the land question, the whisky bond ed period and the naval contracts. The people applaud the stand taken by Postmaster General Vilas against giving away the public funds to millionaires in subsidies. The people are favorable to the side of Secretary Endicot in the assault on the "soft place brigade." In views of American citi.enship aud its protection the people are wilh Secret tary Bayard. Thus in less than half a year the whole country has come to regard the president as a people's president, and the cabinet as a people's cabinet. Republicans as well as democrats see that the administration is not only honest but vigorous and ag gressive aud that the people's business is being transacted with an unprecedented care of public interests. ufactory of agricultural implements con tracted for a year's supply of pig iron, and during the past week another similar establishment bought enough for the sea son's work, amounting to several thou sand tons. An Ohio car works purchased three thousand tons, and a leading stove manufacturer gave an order for one thou sand tons. Transactions to this extent have not of late been frequent by any means. Prices have not advanced, but there has been no retrograde movement for weeks, aud the tendency is now up ward. In dry goods a hardening of values has taken place. The over production has been stopped, and the outpour of fabrics n general has been large, and continues. It is said by some that mills will start up with full production when it is discovered that the demand for goods is increasing. That should not be any cause to fear an other glut of goods very soon, for if they arc needed they will certainly be manu factured. The August report of the Agricultural Bureau is another eood pointer. The cotton crop now promised, and in good condition for fulfillment, is 7,500,000 bales, and with all the favorable condi tions for corn continuing, this crop will probably reach 2,000,000,000 bushels. Oats are promised to the extent of a crop of 683.000,000 bushela, an increase of 50, 000,000 bushels over last year's yield Potatoes are known to be immense in their production, and sugar, which does not come under the attention of statisti cians, is known to be in a fair way of ex ceeding any production since the war. The south has been especially favored for the making of its crops has been at a greater saving of expense than for years, for all supplies have been cheap. Every article used for the sustenance of labor has been obtained at small cost. The crops can be sold at low prices and still yield a handsome profit. The same may be said of farmers who have raised corn oats and potatoes. Wheat will be sold at a good price, and those who have any to sell will be recompensed. The gloom of the past has entirely dis appeared, and the outlook for the future is bright. Farmers will be able to pay their creditors, the country merchants, and they in turn will make the wholesale dealer clad by liquidating previous scores. Railroads w ill have plenty of car rying, wages of their employes will be assured, and stockholders will have more confidence in the receipt of dividends. The millennium will not have arrived, but business will be good, and that will lit satisfaction enough for this year. Cin cinnati Enquirer. SNUBBING UNCLE SAM. A ONE-HORSE SORT OF GOVERNMENT IN SOUTH AMERICA That Will Possibly Maka a Little Mis takeA Probable Cold Day Laying Low for chill -Her "Sarkasom" Likely to Cause Trouble. Washington City, Aug. 25. There has been a great deal of curiosity manifested in diplomatic, circles hare to know the real reason why Secretary Bayard has remained in w ashington all summer, from reliable source it is learned that the relations of tlii country with Chili are not of as nattNfactwy a nature as the Peace society might desire. The trouble dates back to the time when Blaine, as secretnry of state, endeavored to prevent Peru's entire obliteration. Chili has never forgotten nnr forgiven this Interference. Later Blaine sent his son, Walker Blaine, and Mr. Trewott as a com mission to report on the condition of a ft airs. These two gentlemen were snubbed by the Chilian government, and it appenrs from certain lacts made public Sunday night that it has been rubbed in most effectually. Lout year the United States sent down a commission to extend our commercial re lations with the South American countries. The commission visited Chili in the course of its traveR The report of the commission has been made tn the secretary ef state, but Mr. Bayard will aot permit an examination of Its contents by profane eyes. It has been snarl, hew- ever, and when the chapter relating to the reception of the ooramimioa by the president of Chili is made known in its entirety, it will give our people some idea of the con- tempt in which this country is held by Chili. This treatment was cold'y sarcastio, and the Chilian president made no effort to conceal his antagonism to the interests of this coun try. During the war between Chili and Pern, the property of foreign mercantile houses severely suffered. The largest of these concerns wag the firm ef W illiam R. Grace & Co., of New York, of which Mayor Qraoe is the head. They nave a very lar e claim against L Kilt for property destroyed, and the state oVpnrtmant will be recpwsU-d to see tliat the South American bublic y it So far the indica tion an that Chtli will give a prompt and flat refusal It then reman for the ad- niini-.trn.tlon te any what we propoa to de about it. The Chilian government has the Mnet aavy on this continent. One of bur war ships the K.-m-raltia, is second to no vessel afloat ef her ola. It h thought here that Secretary Whitney's rcnt orders rela tive to the immediate completion of the new steel cmisers has name bearing upon this new complication. Toe developments of the next few months if Jl attract much interest, as they will indicate to a great extent the president's foreign policy.

A srjecial from Oak Orchard via Carlton says: The steamer Charlotte left the Olen House at 12:45 Monday morning, carrying a party ol over 100 who had paid to a piece for the privilege of seeing Baker aud Rlattery ngnt wnn nam gloves te a nnish. When the steamer arrived at Charlotte the tug Florence Ynte was waiting with another party on board. The two steamers made the trip in company, arriving here at 0:45 a. m. It was learned uoon landing that Slattery and Baksr were both in jail at Albion. At about 3 o'clock Monday moruing CoU Howard, sheriff of Orleans county, and a post of men, came there with warrairt, issued by Justice Tucker, for cisb arrest or both the men, and captured them. An Albion special say that at 10:31) Mon- iay morning the parties were arraigned be fore Justice Tucker, and discharged on bonds of 4,000 eaoh to keep the peace. Grouns of people are gathered at every cor ner discussing the affair. P0IHTEKB. The pessimists have had their boom and made the best of it, but are probably still unhappy in contemplating the fact that their efforts to create panics have been unsuccessful. The depression in business has been all that could be de aired, and conditions generally were ex cellent for their favorite pastime. The recuperative properties of the country and the economical practices of the peo ple were not counted upon . These have at least asserted their power, and now the croakers are without occupation. Econ omy, although at all tiuies not to be con sidered a virtue, has been of benefit in laying the foundation for that feeling of confidence which is now the basis upon which future prosperity rests. Croaking has ceased, and now all are looking for ward to the realization of thut reward in to active business which is guaranteed by patience and home. There is no whirl in the marts of com merce, nor is it desirable that there should be, but there is everything in the indications which give assurance that the worst is over, a turn has been mode and business is about to be resumed. Point en are numerous, and a few may be men tioned to give hope to those who may still be doubtful. Buyers of pig iron have became convinced that prices are at last upon the lower level, and are acting ac coidingly. A short time ago a large man A Baptist church at Talk Uiver, in Das kota, has devised a new scheme to raise money. A liheral member donated a large track of land to it, and the people got up a plowing bee. Next season the church will have seven thousand bu.helof wheat if the weather is propitious.

The same desperate, drunken "PuggV O'Leary, on Saturday night, shot and killed Kate Snyder, hi mistress, and mortally wounded Mary Scully, his sister. The bloody aad eownr.lly deed was the culmina tion of a drunken orgy carried on L O'Leary and tbe two women en the open prairie near the corner of Halsted and Fiftieth streets. At any rate, the circum stantial evidence that O'Leary committed the erime is almost conclusive, although his sister, lying at the hospital da-perately wounded in tlie neck, is loyal to him and refu- so speak, although she is the only witness of the crime and raliovm she must die.
