AUSTIN. MINNESOTA. C.H.DAVIDSON, Proprietor. VARIOUS TOPICS. FIVE years ago the Italian mercantile navy was in a high state of prosperity, but it is now on the verge of ruin, and many thousand sailors are idle. This state of affairs is accounted for by bad management and crushing taxes. CALIFORNIANS are told by the San Francisco Call that, if they want 5 cent pieces, they must get over their preju­ dice against the nickel, as there are not enongh silver pieces to answer the de­ mand. IN 1S73 the legislature of Arizona passed a special act divorcing the terri­ torial governor from his wife. The pre­ cedent thus formed has been followed until in 1S77 no less than nine couples were parted by act of the legislature. SAILS are recovering somewhat of the estimation that 10 years ago they threatened to lose entirely. It is found that all the advantages are not on the side of steam. In freightage of the heavier, coarser kind, cheapness is more of an element than speed. DUKIXG a debate in th...
