.Associated Press Reports of Political Inves tigations. LOUISIANA. The House committee on powers, privileges, and duties of the House in counting the electoral vote is dragging along with daily sessions the greater portion of which are not of absorbing public interest. On the 30th ult., one Littlefield, clerk of the Louisiana re turning board, testified that on the 3d of December he altered the returns from two of the polls in Vernon par ish so as to transpose 178 Democratic votes over to the Republican candi dates that he did this by the express direction of Gov. Madison Wells, and that after making copies of the al tered origiuals and substituting them for the originals, the latter were burned, either by himself or Governor Wells—he did not remember which, bui at all events with Gov. Wells' knowledge. Gen. Hurlburt, of Illinois, cross-ex amined Littlefield, and reading certain answers from the stenographer's notes of yesterday, which witness is record ed as having then made, he as...

THE GKANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 7,'77. H. H. YOUNG. Publisher & Editor. Revival of Enterprise. Last week we gave a summary of the proceedings of a meeting held on Saturday, Jan. 27th, for organiz-. ing a company to build a new flour ing mill in this cit\. There is hard ly a doubt but that that enterprise will be carried into successful oper ation. This week we notice the initiatory movement for forming a company for the manufacture of stoneware, and there is a strong probability that it will develop into a reality before spring opens There are, also, strong indications of the early creation of another company for the erection in Red Wing of a third steam flouring mill, and it is a matter of talk in certain circles that a company of Red Wing capitalists is likely to be organized for the purchase of one of the mills at or near Cannon Falls. We regard all these things as in dications of a revival of business en terprise during the coming season^ and because of such manifest...

Everything of a political nature is for gotten now in the excitement over the Compromise bill which is before Con gress. It is useless to make surmises about its passage for the result will probably be telegraphed all over the country by the time this reaches you. I quote the following from one of our dailies ''A careful canvas of the two Houses not only confirms the general opinion that the electoral bill will pass both branches of Congress by a good majority, but it shows it will meet with but slight opposition—far less, in fact, than has been heretofore supposed. In the Senate not more than fifteen Sena tors, two of them Democrats, are deter mined in their opposition to the meas ure, and in the House but twenty Dem ocrat...

THKEE LITTLE GRAVES. The sun's last rays played round the graves, jj. Beneath a willow's shade,— Three little graves two seemed to he Dwellings newly made. For there, beside the willow-trunk, A snow-white stone reclined, And on the crave a laded wreath Affections hand had twined. And by the grave a mother knelt Her tears were tailing last Upon the turf, which coldly pressed Her darling hoys—her last. Three springs, deep in earth's cold hreast, An opening flowe'- she laid And now, beside tbvir place of rest, The weeping mother prayed. And still she knelt till round her form The shades ot evening stole, And gentle, balmy zephrys came To cheer the mourner's soul While o'er her, from the clear blue sky, Three little stars looked down,— Three shining stars rnethought such gems To deck the Savior's crown. She saw their light, and o'er her brow A look of gladness spread "I'll wee* no more!" the mother crieg,— "My loved once are not dead! O no fin you lair world of light, They're shining br...

That it had been, during one or two seasons, the largest lo cal wheat market of the world, did not appear to us conclusive evi dence that we were in error.

A SONG OF THE PERIOD. Don't tell me ot the pauper brood, Who daily cry lor a cmst ot lood The badly-clothed or the evil-shoed, Or the bare, blue toes of the crossing sweeper Don't tell me ot the white, wan faces. The du-tv lodgings and crowded nlaces, Where Poverty grins and Sin grimaces! "Don't tell me ot the "awkward squad," The loater who get kept in "quad," Or tired men, laid beneath the sod, In graves where they get house-room cheaper! Dear me I've hardly time to think, With business first, and then the rink, And a tellow must sometimes eat and drink, "Am I my brother's keeper?" Don't tell me of the murky air That chokes the lungs and breeds despair Where none are young, and few are lair, And men drink deep, but wonvna deeper Don't tell me ot the moral obliquity, In th se low dens of vulgar iniquity My views may claim a Scriptural antiquity, "Am I my brother's keeper What! come and help, you say Oh no I Some man ol coarser grain may go, 'Twould break me down to see such woe.

Associated Press Reports of Political Inves tigations. *t LOUISIANA. The House committee subjected ex Gov. Wells, of the Louisiana returning board, to a long examination on the 4th. He denied very positively and in detail having entered into a plan with Maddox, or any one else, to sell the electoral vote of Louisiana. He said his letter to Senator West, where he spoke of having matter to communi cate which he could not write, re ferred to his (West's) candidacy for re-election. Witness also denied point blank having had anything to do with altering the Vernon parish re turns as testified to by Littlefield. The House committee continued the examination of ex-Gov, Wells on the 6th. The examination largely con sisted of bandinage between the com mittee and witness. Wells testified that Duncan F. Kenner, a wealthly gentleman of New Orleans, offered him $200,000 to give the vote of Lousiana to Tilden. Kenner telegrapheo in reply that W€lls offered to sell for 8200,000 but he (Kenner) ref...

TJIB GRANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. .FEB. 14, 1877. II. II. YOI'NG, EDITOR Financial Reform. "It is not owing to oiu errone ous financial system that we have hard times." say certain wiseacres, "for England and Kuiopean nations generally are in a similar condition of business depression." Just so, and those nations are suftereis from a similar cause. The)', too, have sought to reduce money to the sin gle metal, gold and have officially refused to lecogni/.c any other sub stance a a legal tender for the pay ment of debts. Not only so, but they have fixed an arbitraly value to the geld, much lower than it ought to bear, if it is to be the only medi um of exchange. instead, there fore, of the general prevalence of business stagnation being an aigu nient against the declaration that the existence of such depression in this country is due to the wrong fi nancial system in vogue here, it on ly proves that such a system will make hard times in evecy country vvheie it is adopted.

I suppose that in all largo cities there is a great amount of suffering, misery and vice occasioned by poverty but I doubt if so much squallor and ab ject wretchedness can be found in any other city of its size in America as in "Washington and this winter it has been much worse than usual. might say, perhaps, with equal truth, that no other American city exceeds this in gayety and luxurious extravagance. Both extremes are certainly heie and the presence of the latter makes the knowledge and bitterness of the fcrmer the more unendurable.

Speaking oi Western borrowers ot money the Philadelphia Ledger says "The banks are anxious lenders on good business paper, paper made irom actual transactions in the sale of commodities. Indeed, they also lend ireely on good interest and dividend paying securities, but the rule is almost uni versal with them not to make loans on shares that do not pay dividends, or on the bonds of companies that have passed their interest payments.

Earthquakes—The Losses They Have Caused. The lops of life and property caused bv earthquakes is almost appalling. AVithout going deeply into the subject, the following will embrace a chrono logical list of the more important earthquakes, from the earliest records down to the present period About 423 vears before the Christian era, Eubusa was made an island by an earthquake, and in the year 372 B. Ellice and Bula, in Pelopponnesus, were swallowed up. Fourteen years later, a chasm was opened in Rome, when, as Livy informs us, Curtius mounted on horseback, in obedience to an order, and leaped into the yawn ing abyss. Thirteen years after this event, Duras, in Greece, and twelve cities of Campania, were buried through an earthquake, and all the in habitants perished. In the year 283 B. C, Lysimachia, with all its inhabi tants, was buried and seventeen years after Christ's birth Ephesus and other cities were overturned. Hercu laneum and Pompeii were both visited by an earthquake in the y...

THE DARKEST HOUR. BY SARAH J. WADUAMS. 'Tis dark and dreary waiting For the night to pass away, ut they tell me it is ever Darkest just atdawn ofday. But the cross it seems so heavy, And God's ways so dark to me. That I've grown weary waiting The dawning bright to see. Oh. must it grow much darker lire the coming of the light Will the bright, bright star ot morning Ever show its promised light Some stars the dareness showed us, But their light soon passed away, And the darkness groweth deeper,— Surely it must soon be day. A quiet stealeth o'er me, For I feel that morn is nigh Though all earth's paxhs are dreary, There is light for us on high. For bright God's radiant sunshins To mourning hearts is given And we shall know no sorrow, For there's no night in heaven. TWOSflOBS TB1ES IT ON.

T7IE GRANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. FEB. 21, 1877. II. H. YOUNG, EDITOR Will the Decision be Fair? The action of the high joint com mission, organized to decide the question of the presidency, has ex cited severe criticism. Itsfirstvote, taken on the Florida returns, seemed to be a party vote. The republican members voting in accordance with the republican view, and the demo cratic members in accordance with the democratic view. This was to have been expected. We must re member that the questions involved were not really as to matters of fact or law, but of opinion and the con clusions arrived at by any intelligent man, who had inquired into the matter, was likely to be the same which any other intelligent man holding similar political views, would reach. It matters not whether a man be a judge, senator, represen tative, or private citizen, he is still only a man. Clothing him with the ermine does not endow him with in fallibility, for we do not believe, with the judges of the supreme c...

Considerable disappointment pleasurable and otherwise—was felt wh§n the vote of Illinois was read and no objections were made.
