An exposure of some of their enormities and consequent criticism of the Radical Congress Bingham Schenck and John Sherman Stan Forth. One of the land errand Companie. Known As the Atlantic and Pacific run ning or rather to run from Springfield Missouri to the Union Pacific actually sold out its land franchise granted by the government for the turn of $300 000 to a party of speculators. Thus we see con Gress in Tho attitude of making a gift Enterprise 01 me National Domain which is As legitimate a Dart of the National Treasury As the Money in itto enable one company of speculators to sell out to another company of Eperu ator3, that which belongs not to Congress but to the whole people. If this franchise was Worth three Hundred thousand dollars to anybody and it a doubtless Worth ten limes Liat Why was not the Money put into the Treasury of the government which granted the lands that gave it its value but these things sink into comparative insignificance when we come to the enor Mous amount Given away at the last ses Sion of Congress to the Northern Pacific railway. This corporation which under takes to build a railway from Lake Supe rior to the Pacific at puget a bound has now secured no less than forty seve n Mil lion acres of the Public Domain with full Power to mortgage them to any extent and without any limitation whatever on the Price at which they May be sold. Only think of it forty seven million acres equal to a kingdom in Europe larger than Many of our american states Given away to a single private corporation whose sole object whatever May be pre tended is to make Money out of their Railroad Enterprise. Thia Dwarf into in significance All former Grants of land for whatever purpose n a single body. There have been been granted for the Noble object of education Only 1,082,880 acres for universities and 67,983,914 acres in All for Public school purposes. For agricultural colleges Only 9,510,000 acres have been distributed to the states or about one nit As much As Nave gone to this one railway company. In thre quarters of a Century we have Only devoted the above moderate amounts to educational Purpo ses it is True that in Twenty years past. Congress has voted 185,890.974 acres to corporations chiefly to Aid in the construction of railroads. But the first Grant made in 1850, was to a state and the three million acres thus granted to the Illinois Central railway company have be come to a preponderant extent together with the railway itself the property of Loreign speculators los is a bad begin ning but worse it is to be feared remains Dequina. It is peculiarly this North ern Pacific land Grant business that the Pouse of representatives passed the Bill giving up this unheard a f Quantity of Public lands to private speculation after having at the very same session pledged itself by a formal vote to Tho following Resolution resolved that in the judgment of this House the policy of granting subsidies in Public lands to Railroad and other corporations ought to be discontinued and that every consideration of Public policy and equal Justice to the whole people requires that the Public lands of the United states should be held for the exclusive purpose of securing homesteads to actual settlers under the Homestead and Laws subject to reasonable appropriate is of such lands for the purposes of Educ. Ion the above passed the House of the 21st of March 1s70. It was offered by or. Holman of Indiana a Democrat who has never failed to oppose vigorously every one of these measures of Public plunder. Ana yet the same House three months later passed this prodigious Northern Pacific land grab by a majority of some Twenty votes truly consistency is a jewel too rare to be sought in the record of politicians. It is True some democratic members voted with the re publicans Only four or five statesman for this grab but the overwhelming major Ity of the latter in both House and Senate places the responsibility for the measure unequivocally with the republicans. A solid Silver Island. A whole Island of Silver on the North Shore of Lake Superior millions taken out the most remarkable discovery of the age. We have before alluded to the Silver is land of the North Shore of Lake Superior in the British possessions just Delow Thunder Cape and some fifteen Miles beyond it. Willliam. The Island is quite Small in dimensions say 100 feet by 40 and the most of it is submerged at High water a Small part at one end is is about eight feet above the Lake level. This is land was entered by the Montreal mining company As a tract embracing 108,000 acres and was subsequently purchased of them by capt. W. B. Frew formerly of Portage Lake and superintendent of the South Pew Abic Copper mine for himself and associates including among them major Sibley of new. York a brother we think of gen. Sibley of st. Paul. The Montreal mining company first made the discovery that the Island contained Silver and by their agents sunk a a Shaft on the Island but they knew Noth ing about mining and the water coming in upon them further working of their mine was abandoned As useless. It was Only last summer that capt. F. And his company completed their bargain with the Montreal company for the Island and secured it by paying or agreeing to pay $250,000 for the entire 108,000 to Mcrea. They went immediately to work at improving the mine. Their first step was to surround the Island with cribs of Timber filled with Stone to serve Asa breakwater and and within these cribs a cofferdam was built and filled with Clay having the effect of making the whole Interior of the Island nearly water tight at least trom the intrusion of the Lake. The next step was to set up two Large syphon pumps worked by steam by which the in Side was pumped dry or nearly so and it has since been found that a very Little working of the pumps daily keeps the land Clear of water entirely. Then they went to work laying Bare the vein and now have exposed seventy feet in length and find it to be a True fissure vein of Silver matrix being calcareous Par with some Little Quartz intermixed. The vent is eight feet wide and is from there state for one Quarter i this Width it will average seventy per cent of pure Silver. On the first trial after the water was gotten out six men took out $35,000 Worth of Silver in four Days and up to the latest accounts the working has continued at about this rate. Already 123 barrels of native Silver said to be Worth 75 to $100,000, have been shipped. The yield of the mine computed by the ton is not less than a Dollar to the Pound. The mine employs now about forty men and the company will increase their Force immediately. The Royalty paid on this to the eng Lish government is quite Small not exceeding Eye witnesses of intelligence judgment and experience re port that capt Frew will probably take out of Silver up to the opening of Navi gation next Spring from 1 to $3,000,000 Money value the Steamer meteor conveyed Down the lakes on her trip before last sixty to o barrels of Silver. This Silver Island is no Humbug but an actual Bona fide affair in which the most wonderful results have already been obtained and All bids fair to make it yield and Richness the most remarkable mining discovery in this country for Many years. Some masses of Silver went Down i on the meteor larger than a Man could lift. A part of the Island vein say one of the eight feet in Width is wonderfully Rich and it is from this portion that the Largo Silver masses Are extracted. Other Rich mines of Silver Are reported As having been found on the main North Shore in the Ranee of the Silver Island and Cadt. Hod son of Portage Lake has gone East to organize a company 10 work them. A Duluth minnesotan. Marshall mich., Cor. Of Detroit Post the Vanderpool Fiel d murder one of the suspected assassins of Field i arrested and hangs himself. Last week officer Rowley arrested a Man named sen sly de Forest prowling around his House in Frodonia. De Forest bad been sleeping in barns a he was placed in jail charged with vagrancy and in default of bail was sentenced to the House of correction for one year where he desired to go. He said that be bad friends living in Flint in this state and that a lawyer there had charged him with a great crime. He spoke of the Vander Pool trial As though he knew All about it. He acted very strangely and an of Congress from Pennsylvania who saw him As he come into Rowley s Bouse questioned him somewhat and then gave his opinion that de Forest was the Mur Derer of Field. De Forest was placed in jail and this morning he was found in the cell with a rope banging around Bis neck and tied to a Iron bar Bead. An inquest was held and a verdict rendered that he came to his death by his own hands. A mystery hangs around the Man and it is said from his own statements that he implicated himself in the murder of Field and supposed he was arrested for some such crime. No one Here knows him. The Kansas Tribune relates that two persons passing out out of Lawrence on the Galveston Road were struck with the Beaty of the town. Whose place is that said one of them. That is the lordly residence of major George a. Reynolds. Cost thirty thousand what is his Indian what is his salary and How Long has he held o5ce ?

It was believed by Many eminent and distinguished men that As science increased and that As education and intelligence became general that War As a Mutual consequence would decrease and utterly disappear but such is not the Case. Hen we look at the desperate struggle and sanguinary War now raging Between France and Prussia or if we take a Back Ward glance at our bloody four years struggle it seem to us that the science has but Little or nothing to do to Piotr aspirate its carnage or to mitigate their Mencomi Tan t evils. We claim to be the most enlightened educated and civilized nation on gods foot Stool yet our science and enlighten to did not prevent us from entering into a Long civil strife the termination of which no foresighted Man could presume to deter mine. Prussia is claimed and pronounced by Manv americans to be the Best Educa Ted and the most intelligent nation in Europe the same is also claimed of the leading people of France. Yet to a y the two nations Are engaged in one of the most Causeless and bloodiest wars on record with the implements of War rendered so perfect by science and Art that they greatly increase instead of decreasing mortality. Such is the experience which our own country furnishes and such is the experience which the most enlightened nations of Europe furnish that science has but Little or no influence on War. Wars exis Ted from time immemorial and we believe that they will exist As Long As the world stands not that we would justify War or disparage science. We All know that War is the Moat evil that afflicts us it is Murn or and not anything but wholesale Slaughter. And those that excite enmities and kindle the fires of War Between nations for ambition and Persona causes Are Butch ers and should receive the execration of Mankind. We believe that science has done much and is still doing much for the world but men Are always about the same the passions of men Are not Whit More mild than a thousand years ago. What is wanting is More genuine christianity and brotherly love. There is no flesh in Duan s obdurate heart it does not feel for Man. Gems of thought. A Wise Peov eeb. Buy what thou Hast no need of and Ere Long thou Shalt sell by necessaries. Forgiveness. Laws Are Only proper to inflict revenge forgiveness is a Power beyond them and it is a nobler Cem in the Royal Crown than that of condemnation. H Poste Eitt. The greatest Man is he who trouble himself the least about the verdict that May be passed upon him by his contemporaries or posterity but who finds in doing Good honest work to the Best of his ability under existing conditions its own exceeding great the would. Seek not to please the world but your own conscience. The Man who has a feeling within him that he has done his duty upon every occasion is far happier than he who hangs upon the smiles of the great or the still More fickle favors of the multitude.
