The Kopek year in a Dyance. Fort Vaycie Allen county Indiana saturday evening May 14, 1850v Oto prospects is tse event of a Wab. Supposing the Long threatened. European War which so often promised and As often postponed says the Baltimore american to be really inevitable the question of Paramount inter est to us is How will the United. States be effected by it our geographical position Alovic secures us from any involuntary connection with the struggle and our Long settled policy will prevent us from unnecessarily taking sides quarrel with which we have nothing to do. I other Jon Athan. to Light if he has anything 10 fight about but his own Honor must be assailed or his own rights invaded before he grows warlike. We had nothing to do with the. Treaties of 1810, and so far As our own interests arc concerned we Are indifferent about their violation or maintenance. We have no very warm affection or Affinity for , the despot isms represented in that famous Coli Gross under whose authority and by virtue of whose enact ments Austria s cruel fingers were fastened upon the throats of her to aus Alpine Subj cos. Lizul whatever sympathy we May cherish for the oppressed we arc not going to allow oar kindly feelings to involve us in an unprofitable contest however selfish All this May appear in is in strict accordance with the Wise old proverb he that Lucid leu Wilh 5u-ifes which do not concern him is like one that to Kalb a dog by Ibe it is perfectly Plain that an european War would have the effect to enhance the value of All our exportable agricultural products. A Large part of the food for the armies engaged would be furnished by us. This fact is so obvious that we need do no More than state it. From present indications it u supposed Hal the wheat crop of Lac United slates will be larger in 1850 than it has been for a Long series of years. The Promise of an extraordinary yield is heard from All the wheal growing slates and if this Promise should be Fol Jill cd and our Harvest prove largely beyond be average the continued in cat of hostilities Wil be Sulli Cint to keep the prices up. If Lucre should by actual War within the next iwo or three months 11 is not All improbable thai prices would reach Tho figures obtained during the prevalence of the Irish famine. As was Lac Case Ihen hero will be much Money made and much lost there will be found Only of Cullors scoring Grain at High Cost hoping for further advances. There can of course be no estimate made of these crops that mature later in the year but the value of All other agricultural products to a certain extent it is generally supposed the Collon grow ing states will be losers almost if not quite in pro portion to the increased receipts for Cereal pro if the exportation of hrad Lulfs should be or thirty millions in excess of former years it is very probable that there will be a corresponding decrease in the Export of the great Southern Staple. It docs not by any Iri cans follow that there will be As Greal a decrease in the Home value of Coupon. La is said thai inc present Supply is lighter than usual at ibis season of Lac year and Many holders arc still further advances. One very important customer fing land is not Likely to be entangled in Ibe european difficulties and our own manufactories Wilh their present Small Slock will 116 doubt Aid in keeping the prices up to a remunerative Point nevertheless it seems Clear enough thai a War would exert to influence upon Coupon and Iho suggestion Uii it planters should Holdover their crops Foi the restoration of peace or even withhold half their crops from Market is Perfec dlr Idle. Granting that their course would him. Tho effect to prevent a present decline the Block which would be thrust upon inc Market a Tho earliest available moment would certainly end to ensure a much More serious full in prices. Probably the Mobil obvious Benefit accruing Lotis from ulc misfortunes of our neighbors across the water would to the Active employ Cul of our shipping. There Lias been for years gradually increasing complaint of the if ship properly. It is notoriously certain thai them Aro More Idle vassals in All our seaports than fit any previous period of our history. W whatever Causti May have combined to bring about this stagnation the fact is palpable enough Lull an european War would ensure tin a Active employ ment of our shipping. Instead of lying in Harbor it filing for freights at starvation rates american vessels would Btu it demand once More and our Flag would again be found in every port All we wish Lor our commercial Marine is Remus Ralic and constant employment a few years activity with no competitor but England would secure to american ships the first place in the mercantile navies of the world. The Newark advertiser. Things by their 1uohi Hames.

Hut a truce to inc War and to reforms abroad. There Aro reforms that really concern ourselves most intimately. They Are nol of the Constitution but of the personal character and conduct of business men. The Reform the abolition this country wants is the abolition of cheating. The Independent has a chapter on.

A Mirror is needed Large enough to reflect entire Fea Tures of the ugly reality. To understand the deformity of this vice of cheating in ought nol Only in be seen but seen in All ils infinite and disgust ing variety. Look at some of the a wholesale and retail dry goods stove Sells you Twenty pounds of sewing silk. When , its wig he is ten or fifteen pounds to More. Such is Lac custom.

A paper of Cut ticks marked contains As will be found on opening Only Iuo you get Only 700 percussion Caps for a tool has cast steel stamped on it. There is nol a Bil of Sll Eliu in the . Is All in the trader. A bundle of a Gross of balloon should Ronti Iii of course 12 pieces of 12 Yards each but it Actu of Christian equity and Honor. Such is ther form Hal is now needed in the ii Reantillo world.
