It is not our purpose in this mentiou to
write a biographical notice of this great
man. We only say, he sirred his coun
try iuiuauy foreign courts, uln ays with
oisliiictiou.lie was privy councillor, vice
chancellor.chancellor.aud finally received
the marked honor of having the emperor
confer upon him the "Dignity of Serene
ilighne:s ' on account of his diplomatic
triumphs. His ideas of statesmanship
were broad ami liberal. It was mainly
through his influence, the Russian em
pire has been liberalized and especially
towards its subject, diflcrin iu their
faith from the Greek church; iu fine, the
Russian empire in its every progressive
feature today bears the impress of this
man's character and genius.
All can remember the picture of the
wonderful trio, Hismark, Disraeli and
Gortchakolf in the Congress ol natives at
Ueriln at the close of (he late bloody
struggle between the Ottoman and Rus
sian powers where tho peace of Europe
waf guaranteed. There is no American

was u friend and .-m admirer of Ameri

he refused to permit Russia to assume
an uulrieudly attitude towards our coun
try during our ciyil war, although both
England and France hud assumed such
an attitude toward us. and Knrim.in
liplomiicy required that Ru.-via should
at that time maintain the closest friend

for them to give the matter prompt

if sufficient material can be found.

While the iron trade in other cities
is depressed and uncertain, that inter
est in St. Louis is not only prosperous,
but is advancing as to capital and con
trol of territory. An evidence of these
facts is the recent purchase by Messrs
L. L. fcsouther & Bio. of the entire
stock of merchant, bar, plate and sheet
iron held by the Chouteau, Harrison
and Valle Iron Company. The stock
is estimated to amount to about 1,500
tons, but may exceed that amount.and
the transaction involves very nearly
$100,000, as a considerable portion of
the stock- was of the highest grade of
iron. The Messrs. Souther Lave also
rented the buildhn;s,933 and 941 North
Second street, in which the stock is
located, and will occupy them until
their new buildings. 832, 034 and 936
on the same street, are completed. The

There are only tour nations in the

to make er.ds meet and show

fifty times as much, and Holland and
Belgium both keep about even. With
these exceptions every nation in the
civilized world shows an annual deficit
