NEWS OFJTHE WEEK. The East. Tlie extensive dry goods firm of Jordan, Marsh & Co., Boston, in charged with frauds on the revenue to the amount of * 1,000,000, and the books and . property of the honuo have been gorzeu by an agent of the Treasury Department. These frauds have, it IB alleged, boon curried oh uyBtomaticaliy for a BOrioB of years. ' . .. . . . ' . ' ' ' . A Baltimore dispatch 8t » ten that ' the & H- . buster steamor Edfiar Stewart is fitting out' in that port for Cuba. » ; The United States sloop- of- war Juni » tn, liaviug on board the surviving passengers of tlie VirgiuiuB, arrived at New York the other day, and an examination of them was at once commenced by the United W&& B District Attorney. It ia etated that there is a concerted plan among the prisoners tojirqfCBs nttor ignorauce of the Virginias' mission at the time i'he was captured, and all facts relating to her. They have agreed to this scheme, it is supposed, in order to avoid trouble with ihe United States Government, in case 1 " it should be proved that the neutrality laws were violated. Miss Eliae Holt, the well- known actress, died in Pittsburgh, a few days ago, of pneumonia. The West. Tlie unemployed workingmou of Chicago, to the number of about 5,000, marched in procession to the City Hall, the other night, and, through a committee, had a conference with the Mayor and Council. Mayor Colvin assured them that ho would do everything in his power to afford employment and relieve the prevailing distress, after which the proceseiorj dispersed and everybody went home apparently satisfied. Similar movements have been had in Louisville, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Philadelphia, and other cities, arising from lack of employment. In the latter city there has been some roting among the dock labor ore. A watch factory is to be established at Bockford, III. The town of Lincoln, New Mexico, was lately the scene of a bloody tragedy, in which David Warner, Mr. Herrold, J. I » . Glynn, and Juan Martin were killed. Martin was a constable, and, with a posse, tried to arrest the others. Warner killed him. The Sheriff's party killed Warner, and the other two named were also found dead, riddled with bullets. Edward Schwarzvoegel, hie child and wife, all Prussians, and recently from Baltimore, Md., were found in their room at a hotel in Cincinnati, the other evening, the two former dead, and the latter dying, from inhaling the gas, which they had neglected to turn off before retiring. Five kundred and thirty million dollars' worth of goods were sold in Chicago during the past year at - wholesale alone, being a gain of 18 per cent, over the same business of 1872, and a gain of 31 per cent over that of 1870. A frightful tragedy was - enacted at the village of Riga, near Dddson, Ohio, on Christmas Day. A party had assembled to have a shooting match, and two brothers, named John and Henry Stone, quarreled about loading the rifle . used. John called Henry a liar, when Henry drew a revolver and shot John, killing him instantly. The spectators being much excited, caught and hung Henry to the limb of a tiee, and, when taken down, life was extinct. Too much whisky caused it all. Chris. Bafferty. the murderer of Policeman O'Moam. of Chicago, who has been thrice convicted and sentenced to death, and who was to have boon - hung at Waukegan on the 26th of December, has been granted a suportiodeaa, St. Louis has established a soup and sleeping house for the deserving poor. A Davenport ( Iowa) hotel waiting- maid has fallen heir to a million dollars in Ireland. The great, bridge ' of the Chicago,- Alt on and St. Louis railroad, at Louisiana, Mo., has been corapluted, and trflins are putting over it. Jiidgo Qoddia, of the - Seventh Judicial District of Kansas, has given a' deci.'- iou in the disputed Osage lands in favor of the settlors. The case will be appealed- to the Supreme Court. The Recounts of the Treasurer of Leavenworth county, Kan., are in confusion, and a committee who have examined them report that that officer is " short" $ 69,000. Through the negligence of a turnkey, eleven prisoners quietly walked out of the Pooria ( 111.) jail a few evenings ago. Tho report tluvt the engineers of the Northwestern and Illinois' Central railroads had joined in the late strike was premature. The curniugH of the Illinois Central railroad for the six months ending Oct. 31 wore $ 3,- 189,832.03, an excess of $ 1,623.65 over last year. David A. Gage, the defaulting ex- Treasurer of Chicago, has turned over his property to a trustee for the benefit of the city. The property is valued at $ 528,500, while the deficit in his accounts amounts to $ 507,000. The National Crop Keporter, of the 29th ult., publishes returns from the States of ' Illinois, MiunoBBota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Kaunas, Missouri, imd Indiana, in relation to the supply of hogs for the current season, showing that the total number fattened in the States named is 8 1- 10 per cent, less than for the reason of ' 72. the comparative falling off in each State is as follows : Illinois, 5 per cent. Minnesota, 10 8- 10 ; Wisconsin, 60- 10; Iowa, 0 5- 10 i Ohio, 9 2- 10; i|£ h8 » g, 76- 10; Mis- Bouri, 7 3- 10 ; thieBt citizen of A Washington dispatch Bays the majority ol the Senate are not in favor of the total repoa of tho Bankruptcy act, but of amending it iu Bucli pai- ticular as will guard a debtor from the exactions of a email minority of his creditors, caving tlio question of involuntary bankruptcy'to be determined by those more largely intorcBlcu. ,' . - .

OU bo regained, and the Secretary of the Treasury expects bis reserve will hold oni till riext May. Tho Government Directors of the Union Pacific railroad have made their report to the Secretary of the Interior. They say that the condition of the road is vastly improved since tho last nniiual examination, aud speak very encouragingly of its future prospects. They agnei- l that the road can bo made to pay $ 12,000.000 por annum with no exertion beyouc reasonably good management. Calculating operating expenses at 55- per cent., they estimate that this will pay interest on the first luorth'ugQ income and Government subsidy bonde, besides 5 per cent, of net earnings to tho Government, and leave $ 700,00' for divi fiends on Block. The earnings last year were a liUle oTor $ 10,000,000. They take the ground that the road, is completed in the meaning o£ the act that upplieg 5 per cent, of the not caruiugH to form . a uiukiug fund. President Grant is reported a » Baying t ua t he has no intention of withdrawing'the nomination of Attorney- General Williams as Chief . Tnfitico of the United States.

Madam Itumoris busy jwith Cabinet changes. Tho latest is that Secretary Richardson and' > Ir. Schenck, Minister to tho Court of St.. James, aro about to exchange official posiions. A Washington dispatch of Dec. 25 says: " It s safe to say that, upon the resembling of the Senate, the nomination of Williams as Chief fustice will bo withdrawn.; It is ascertained hat if a vote « ecS. taken frvbis confirmation n a full Senate, there wonlil bo a majority of eight against him on the Republican side)) without counting the opposition. It is con- Idently predicted that Cnlob dialling's name will be sent in next." tt is stated that tho estimates for river aud uu'bor improvements will be cut down from $ 20,000,000 to $ 3,000,000. Several of the members of tho Senate Committee on Privileges are hard at work on schemes for amendments to the Constitution, relative to the election of President. At tile irst meeting of tho committee it partially matured a plan before the session began, vhicli involves tho abolishment of the Electoral College, and makes the election by a plurality nstead of a majority. The President has appointed Caleb Gushing i succeed Gen. Sickles as Minister to Spain. The President has pardoned Eiugold, Young, Neil aud Hal- kins, of Alabama, who are now serving out terras of imprisonment for Ku- Clnxism. During eighteen months past fiftynine persona who were convicted of Ku- Kuixsm have been pardoned. About twenty applications for pardon are etUl ponding boforo the Attorney- General. Orders have been issued from the Navy De- > artment to discontinue the recruiting depots it Toledo, Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, and various other points which were opened at he beginning of the complication with Spain. It is rumored that tho President will uomnate Gen. Behenck to bo Secretary of the Treasury, vice Richardson, the present Secretary, to be Secretary of the Interior, and transfer Secretary Delano from the latter department to the mission to England. : Foreign. A Key West telegram to the New York Tribune gives an interesting account of the surrender of the Virginias prisoners to Lieutenant- Commander Braine, of the Jnniata.,' It appears that the Spanish authorities to the last moment kept the poor wretches in ignorance of their prospective release, and with aase inhumanity led them to suppose that they were to be executed. Friends were with them, taking their confessions and dying declarations, aiid imploring them to look , to God for pardon. They were taken out of irison iu despair, but on their way to i the slaughter- pen, as they supposed, their eyes fell upon the Juniata flying tho flag of tho United Statcn. When they realized the truth, a ecane occurred which beggars description. The enthuisiaem knew no bounds. They were speedily transferred to tho deck of the Juniata, and gave vent to the moot cxtranagaut but touching demonstration's of | oy, embracing each other, some crying, some tissing, and others audibly offering thanks to tho Almighty for thoir deliverance from the liorrore of then- dungeon and the prospect of an ignominious death. On the night before the surrender tho officers and crow of the, Juniata wore stationed at quarters, her guna being turned 011 the city. The Spanish volunteers having been excited lo open riot by the rumor, that the surrender wan to tako place, a large number of volunteers went in a body to the Governor's palace and begged permission to attempt tho capture of the Juniata, saying that they could do it with knives alone. Tho Governor refused to grant permission. The poor prisoners presented a most pitiable sight in their tattered and filthy rags, and every heart was touched by the spectacle. They report that then- treatment was moat barbarous. — Gnu. Ignacie Boneales Ijas been elected President of San Domingo. Tlie new administration, it is said, will attempt to annul the lease of Samana Bay. - A dispatch from the Hague announces that the Sultan of Acheon, seeing defeat in evitablo, has given in hie submission to the Dutch commander. — Advices from Santiago do Cuba represent tho situation there as very serious. A short timo ago twenty- five citizens were arrested, aud after a mock- trial, without any evidence being adduced against thenj, they were told to go home. On their way they were cruelly waylaid and killed. Only one escaped, and he was riddled with bullets. The Americans aro continually in fear of thoir lives, and bitterly complain that nothing has been done io redress their wrongs. — An official denial is given in London to the story of the New York Times, that the Knglish Government has demanded the punishment of Gen. Burriel. — Bochefort, the Communist, is reported to have died recently in the penal colony of New Caledonia, whence he was banished. The German Emperor is seriously ill. The siege of Cartagena, Spain, is being vigorously pushed, aud tho early fall of the city is predicted. The besieging forces have mi& fe a breach in Fort St. Julian, one of the strongest defenses, j A Berlin telegram' announces that tlie Yinperor of Germany is recovering. v, The officers of tho Transatlantic Steamship Company, in Paris, to which the Btoamer Vilh du Havre belonged, have investigated the disaster, aud fully exonerate the officers am crew of the lost steamer from the charges of cowardice and neglect of duty. Francois Hugo, son of Victor Hugo, died in Paris on the 28th of December, aged 44 years Ralph ; Keeler, Cuban correspondent of th< New York Tribune, recently fell overboarc frem a steamer between Havana and Santiago and was'drowned. A desperate conflict between a-- band of Car lists and a Bepubliean forco occurred recently before Bonayrente, in the province o Valeucie, Spain. The insurgents wore de feated with heavy loss in killed and wounded Marshal Bazaiuc has loft Versailles for Ste Marguerite. Tho steamer Gipsy Queen sunk in tho rive Thames on the 2Bth of December. Sixty por sons were on board, eighteen of whom wer drowned. . A Havana dispatch states that the eteame VirgiuiUB has been condemned as a lawfit prize by the Prize Court iu that city. A Madrid dispatch reiterates the statemeu that the Spanish Government has determinec to demand the restitution of tho steamer Vir giiiiua, as well as indemnity, basing its deman upon the decision of Attonrey- GoneralTVil lianw that sho had no right to sail under Hi American Hag. The Captain- General of Cub bos beeu invested with extraordinary powers aud Uurriol relieved of his command at Ban tiago. Political. Judge Hager, of Sau Francisuo, has been lectod to tho short term in tho United States nato from California. Ho takes Mr. Ca « - erly's nnoxpirod term, whioh runs till March 1875, The majority fov tho new Constitution in ' ennsylvania is 115,150. The Hon. Samuel Shollabargcr, of Ohio, is lamed as the probable successor of Gen. ickloB as Minister to Madrid. Ho was formerly Minister lo Portugal. A Washington correspondent says Senators umner and Schurz will unite with tho Demorats in criticising unsparingly tho conduct of he Administration in the Yirgiiiiua affair. Judge Enroll, of Louisiana, who is throatnied with impeachment, has made a direct imposition to tho Washington Administration to resign on condition that ho bo . guaranteed a oroign mission. His proposal was rejected. The Grange. The State Grange of Minnesota, recently in cssion at Minneapolis, was very largely atended, 300 of the 100 subordinate granges in he State being represented, and tho doliberaioiie manifested a stern determination on ho part of the delegates to do their utmost o defeat tho monopolists. J. H. Dcnrnan was tloctod State Agent for the ensuing year, and iis salary fixed at $ 1,500. • A mooting of Grangers waa recently hflld at Xrcleville, Ohio, at which it was revolted to icroafter buy groceries at Cincinnati at wholeale iirioes, through an agent. Delegates from tho granges of Northwestii Missouri, Eastern Kansas and Southern Nebraska met iu St. Joseph, Mo., oil Dec. 24, and organized n District Council. The con- • eulion was well attended, aud a very harmonioua organization was perfected* The ilatform of the Illinois, Farmers' Association ras adopted by the Council, with some slight additions. Tho Masters of Subordinate Granges hronghont tho State of New HnmpBlilre,'* companied by their wives, assembled at Maiihester on tho 24th of December, and organzed a State Grange. A constitution and by- , ws were adopted. Resolutions were also adopted against special privileges agkiug more or themselves than they are willing to grant or other industries; denouncing trickery, > ribery, and corruption iu elections; favoring qnal and just taxation; calling upon tho State o give its children a moral and liberal educaion; acknowledging the rights of woman by admitting her as an equal in the Order; demanding justice and economy in public affaire, and recommending the Order as a bond of Juiou stronger than armies. General. : : The signs of peace are increased by an order cutting off all extra work at the Charlestown ? avy Yard. It amounts to an official declaraion that there is no longer any danger of a naval war with Spain. The lines of the Atlantic and Pacific. Telegraph Company have been bought by the Ventern Union Company. The St. Louis Globe, a paper that has boon lersietently " ref twed admission to a « tilfisn monopoly known as the " Western Associated ? resa," baa been detected iu surreptitiouslyobtaining possession of the telegraphic dis- > atches belonging to the Association, through , hjj:| idof." a lolegraph Aerator, and there is, L howl of virtuoua indignation among the members of tlio aforesaid selfish monopoly. ' Tho ^ remains of tho late Judge Dent wore buried in Bollofontaine Cemetery, St. Louie, in the 20th inat. President Grant, son- in- law of the deceased, accompanied tho remains ' rom Washington. Tho opinion of Attorney- General Williams n the case of tho steamor Virginius has boon published. The opinion is based mainly on- . he law of 1792. Ho decides, after a full iurootigation, that the papers of the Yirginiiis voro procured by false swearing, and that the easel was really the property of certain Cubans, who had purchased her for an illicit traffic. Ho decides, therefore, that the Vic; ginius had no right as' against the United States to carry the American flag. He holds, levertheless, that while carrying this flag she was as exempt from interference on the high seas by foreign powers as if she had boon n'oporly registered, on tlie ground that neither^ Spain nor any other Government could assume a jurisdiction belonging exclusively to tho United States. This decision relieves Spain from the obligation of saluting the American flag, under tho terms of the protocol, and it makes it incumbent on tho United States to. prosecute theVirginius under the laws of this country. The Yirginius prisoners; who were surrendered at Santiago de Cuba, Bay that when the officers from the Tornado boarded the VirgiiiiUB, one of them, iu hauling down the flag of the United States, tore it into ribbons aud trampled upon it, asserting, with an oath: This is what I have wanted." The steamer connecting Cairo aud the Kentucky shore made its first trip on the 24th ol December. This is tho laat link in tbo MiB eippi Central railroad, which makes a through all- rail route from Chicago to New Orleans. As a result of the financial troubles in Japan, a part of the young Japanese students who have been studying at Ann Arbor, Mich., have beeu recalled home. The railroads operated by the Pennsylvania Company are seriously embarrassed by strike of the engineers against a reduction c: wages. There has also been a temporary interruption of the running of trains on the Illinois Central and Chicago and Northwestern roads from the same cause. < The announcement has boon made that tin Northern Pacific Itailroad Company will film all the interest on its bonds up to aud iuclud ing January, 1876, into five- year 7 per cent coupon- bonds, convertible into the Company's first mortgage bonds at par, aud into the Ian of the company at 25 per cent, off from regu lar prices. As is customary at the close of navigation the managers of the great oast and west truul linos, like the New York Central, Erie, an Pennsylvania roads, have met iu New Yorl and raised their freight rates. The strike of the locomotive engineers on the lines operated by the Penueylvania Cen tral. has met with a sudden check in the shape of an official manifesto from the chief of tin Brotherhood of Engineers, who anuouucei that the strike has been inaugurated iu direc and open violation of the rules, advises thosi who have quit work to resume again aud pre vent others from stopping, and warns them not to interfere with the operations of tbi railroads. The roads are gradually gettini into running order again, and the presence o the militia at various points where the excite mont is the greatest has had a good effect Beyond the throwing of a train from the traol near Cincinnati, one or two similar attempt in Indiana, and the shooting of a nou- uniou engineer at Indianapolis, no serious violenc has beeu used by the strikers. ENGLISH FOBTIPIOATIONS.— From a re turn just issued it appears that during the lost twelve years England has ex pended a sum equal to $ 32,646,989 up on coast fortifications, distributed fo the most part at Portsmouth, Plymouth Portland, Pembroke, Sheerijoss, Dovei Graveseud, Chatham, and Cork.

During ast Hummer tie. traveled oveta large lerritory, lecturing upon the objects of ho order, and preparing the way for the irganizntion of subordinate bodies. The Master of tho Ohio State Grange s 8. H. Ellis. He is a native " Buetsye," is forty- three years old, and has > een a farmer all his life. He was one S. H. EIiLIS. > f fifty who organized the first grange n Ohio, when he was elected Master, md was subsequently appointed by tho ! fational Grange a tiepiity for Ohio to organize new granges. The Ohio State Iriiuge has more than one hundred subordinate granges under it. The State of Missouri ranks next to xnva in the number of subordinate jrangcs, having, we believe, over seven mndred. Tho Master of the State Swinge is T. B. Allen, who is an active T. B. ALLEN. working Granger, and one of the most efficient members of - the order. The rapid growth of the organization in the State is largely duo to his influence, combined with that of his co- laborers. Co- operation. • The system of co- operative purehjv has been Adopted by the grange i) i ' t State, though it has not been perfected & it has in Iowa. Whevi'therf were five granges in this county- t- the'ro aro now eighteen— arrangements were made with leading merchants in Otfliko. sh to sell the Grangers tit ten jler cent, ad vance on the cost of the goj> ds at tho place where they were bought. This gives the merchant about five per cent. profit, and the advantage of a large eash trade. The arrangement has beer most satisfactory. On groceries iirit heavy articles, on which there has always been but little profit, of course tho saving has been small; but 011 hats caps, boots and shoes, cloth, clothing dry goods of every kind, ribbons anc and other millinery articles, books auc stationery, and all kinds of fancy ary eles, the saving has been from ton to sixty per cent. As new granges havo been formed, the trade of those who made the arrangement with the Patrons has increased, and the majority of the Grangers, who had always boon in the habit of having accounts at the stores in this oity, now pay cash for every thinj they buy. In the purchase of farm im pleinents, machinery, sewing macliincf and musical instruments, a considerable saving has been made. I think it ii contemplated to havo the grange of this State unite in purchasing with that o Iowa— that is, that it shall be so ur . ranged that the granges of both Statoa and perhaps of Minnesota, shall con tract with the same manufacturers, am ' thus, by increasing the size of tkei aggregate orders, get IOWPI- prices thun either could alone. A good many farm ers as yet hesitate about sending tliei money to the State agent when the, wish to make a purchase, but they ar The Triumph of Independents.

These overgrown money- powers have Bystomitically " run" the State government, vhioUovor. " party" might bo in tho ascendant, juntas they havo run the busiicss behind their own oftioo- oountovH. L'hey - have . composed - Legislatures and nado laws, havo corrupted judges, and x> nglit and sold offices; havo bought eats for their creatures in the United States Senate, and havo owned the Caliornia delegation at Washington.

STewtou Booth, the ablent and most eonipieuons leader of the Independent po itical movement in the United States, is chaseu to the United States Senate for six years from the 4th of March, 1875.

Developing the Country. As Congress has now assembled, it may not be uninteresting for tax- payers to tako a brief survey of the lobby anil see what that delectable body has in Land. Por eight or ten years past tho lobby has boon the power behind tho throne, and in order that we may form some idea of what Congress will do, it is necessary to see what the lobby will re quire of it. Combinations of unscrupulous men, both in and out of Congress, have been BO successful in their raids upon the National Treasury, for tho past few yearn, that, notwithstanding the indignation whioh the people have lately oxpressed through the ballot- box, wo fine that we have a large aud powerful corn bination on haud. whose avaricious spiril and ravenous appetite is not to be stayet by any. disapproval which the people may show so long as Congressmen are willing and anxious to aid and assis them.
