For the Journal.
SsprocatatiMi cf tia -"aztci Statas at tha
International Expositions are great
National adverv.isc:nenta It is a good
thing tor a Nation to be well represented
at them ; but it is better not to be repre
sented at all than to make a poor show.
One of these expositions is evuivalent to
a consud. W hen tho people are num
bered tha figures are apt to stand for
the whole term; and when the indus
trial st ttm of a nation is fixed by the
position it takos at a great exhibition a
judgment is passed in the mind, univtr-
al ot iu.ink.!id, wliK-a change not, un
til the occurence of anothea Exhibition
furnishes now d ta for consideration.
Now, there is to be an International
..position at x icua x. m Austria, in
tbo course of 1S73. ienna is ia the
v.:rv' cs-'nt'-'r of E iro3. " Upon one side
ii' it comes agricultural nn i jjstoia! Eu
rope, and on the other manufacturing
virope. All tnat the old continent can
xhibtt in value, art, science, mauufjc-
tutes aud agriculture wiil find its way to
icuui. It is proposed that the United
.Mates shall have a department in the
World's Show ;" and wo say that that
department must be good exhibit the
best we can or it will be injurious rath
er ttiau nenecoiai to mj country,
as regards the object w must have in
view, whieh is not ao much to spread
abroad the name and the fa ma of the
United States, a t3 extend our trade
an J commcrtje, and to bring Old World
eapitol and labor to our laud. This, at
all events, must be the object ot the
'et ; and we ar8 therefore interested
nt making the American Department, at
V ienna, euthuiently attractive to draw
men's thoughts hi; her ward. The De
partment must not be stinted in its ne-
oensary expenditure. ' Nothing is to b-j
done without money, and money enough
for thj purpo-e. We find, however,
from a circular issued by. the Hon.
Thomas YanBuren, IJ. S. Commissioner
Is the International Exposition, that the
committee on Foreign llclat'ons, of the
House ot Kepresentativcs, does not re
aiiza the importance of the work. The
committee suggests to tha House, an ap
propriation ot $100,000 Inr conveym
goods for exhibition, from New York to
the Austrian port of Trieste. This sum
is too small. If this country is to b
adequately represented and we think
we have shown reason why it should, if
it is to oe represented at ali the appro
priation ought not to be less than 3)0.

ald : According to an
nouncriucm, tbo Wecpine Water Divis
ion, No. 1G, Sons t.f Teinierance, ha
a festifal at their hall (the Folden Schoo
Hou-e) on Wednesday evening, Deor'tn
ocr Jb, 18i2, which was a perfect suc
cess. The rnembers of the I)iriion had
purchased and furnished a goodly quan
tity of andies. nats, apples, raisins, etc.,
etc., which were sold at a rapid rate, the
house being crowded to its utmost, with
men, women and children. One of the
features oT the festival was the sale of
forty papers of candy, containing about
two cents worth of candy each, one of
which contained a $2.50 gold cin Tbe
papers were sold for twenty-live cents
each. Lhas. W. i olden drew the pnee
pspcr. Besides the abox'e candies, nuts,
ia, the lady friends brought in cakes,
pies, and other good things, which were
rapidly sold at auction, bringing a very
high price for each article sold. But
the most excitable feature of the feast
was the selling of a beautiful cake, at
ten cents a vote, to be presented to the
ady who should receive the highest nutn
ocr ot votes as ocrig the nest lookine
ady (married or single) in the house.
The voting started out with but little
hopes of success, with threw candidates.
In a short time, however, the house be
came divided, and settled dowu upon
two candidates Miss Lucy Murphin
and Miss Sarah Hastings end at five
minutes past one o'clock, a. m., the
voting was closed, Miss Murphin having
received 874 votes and Miss Hastings
870 votes, Miss Murphin taking the
prize by four majority, the cake having
been sold for $174.40.
Everything passed off lively and
aCL-ably, and at the close, many, who
had taken no interest in the Division
heretofore, expressed themselves as be
ing satisfied that tne cause of temper
ance was commendable, and tint here
after they would throw their moral infl.i
ence in that direction. The net proceeds
of the evening were about $2-0. W).

U.MOK, Doc. 20. 1S72
Iciiaa War ia Crssca.
The Indian war in Oregon continue, i
So far f'Urteen settlors are reported
killed, one of whom, Henry Miller, was
tortured to death. About thirty of the !
Modocs have been killed. Litest alvi
ces say the Modoc Indians have retreat
ed to Wright's Cave, on the southwt-s? i
side of iu!e Like, Oregon, with their
children and squiws, and have laid in
a good supply of provision. The cave
is si uated on the high tabu land md
covers about three acre. It has an un
derground entrance, narrow and easily
guarded. It is calculated that fifty Mo-j
loo warriors with a numrer from Put
River, and several Pintes with thorn, are
fortified there, t'our hundred United
States soldiers and mam volunteers are
in arms against the Indians. Last Sun
day, a week ago, a simall parry of scouts
left Lamp rairchnd and they have not
b."en heard from siuce. It is expected
that a decisive battle will take place at
Wright's Cave if the Indians bold their
Ya'a College aad V7s:naa Castors.
It is stated, "as a piece of news not
generally known," by the Yale Record,
hat ' s veral adie app tod for admis
sion to the Medical School at the begin
ing of the current term. ihev were
re fused admittance, and "the Medical
Facu'ty unanimously resolved that lilies
woulluot be admitted to the Medical
Department until they were also admit
ted to the other departments of the Uni
versity." We do not see the force of
the rule. Perhaps society does not
need female lawyers or' preachers, but
nobody can deny that it. does need, for
certain branches of practice at least, fe-
ma e doctors. omen are in tin pro
fession, and cannot be put out of it.
The question is whether they shall le
we!! or ill-educated ? To thi the lale
Medical School substantially answers
that they shall nit ba educated at a!!,
until other women can be educated for
the pulpit and the bar ; which amounts
to sayiiig that the YaKi doctors are per
fectly willing that we should have female
physicians worthy of that name.

The American diamond thieves, Davis

robbed the Russian Empress and three
of the Imperial museums in the great
city, confessed th.'ir crime to the au

our paper not long airo. The two Ameri

convict, they were marched out, chained
together band and foot, with three other
retched convicts, and started en route
fjr their cheerlesx destination.
rounded by a battalion of soldiers of the
line, and followed by a jeering crowd,
the miserable procession na-si-d alor:r
who had mingled in the bet society of
New lork. Davis and Saunders ali
along acted with extreme resignation,
and seemed not to notice one another,
though chained together; bxit when
coming in sight of the village of Dalo
grow, twenty-nine milas from Moscow,
they broke their fetters, and, rushing
upon the soldiers nearest them, snatched
th;ir ma-kest, and incited the oth-r con
victs to follow their example, which for
a time partially succeeded, the guard be
ing weak that point. All were e
cured. ' again, towever and the two
Americans were sentenced by the mili

and be knotted with fifty lashes, which

Many years ago lloraoe (Jreuley wrote
hi opinion of the province of a true
American-journal in the following for
"My leading idea was the establish
ment of a journal removed alike from
servile partisanship on the one hand,
and gagged mincing neutrality on the
1 believe there was a happy medium
between these extremes a position from
which a journalist might openly and
leartily advocate the principles and
commend the measures of that party to
which his convictions allied him, yet
frankly dissent from its course on a par
ticular question, and even denounce its
cindidates if they were shown to be de
ficient in capacity or (far worse) in in
tegrity. 1 felt that a journal thus loyal
to its guiding eonvictiftns, yet ready to
expose and condemn unworthy conduct
incidental enor on the part of men at
tached to its party, must be far more
eiieciive, even party-wise, than though
it might always be counted to applaud
or icprobate, bless, or curse, as the par
ty's prejudice or immediate interests

A pleasant little incident is related of
Miss Clara Louisa Kellogg, which oc
curred while visiting the (jrindelwaldY
glacier in Switzerland, daring her late'
tour. Her party encountered; as other
parties do, a young Italian Swiss, who
earned a precarious existence by frautio
efforts to rouse an echo from tne oppo
site cliffs by means of an awkward horn.
Mter draining every muscle he brought
forth a melancholy too, with no great
effect upon the opposite) crags. Misa
Kellogg watched for some time bis vain
endeavors, and then raising in the car

four or five beautifully perfect echoes,
with an impertinently clear trill at the
end. The young lulliaa doffed his hat,
and exclaimed: "Ah, madam, could I

here would be made."

Eli Perkins, of the N. Y. Commerciai'
Advertiser thus discourcs:
I've been ptudj-ing the cause of laugh
ter lately. I thought .if I could nly
find out what produces laughter, I'd gel
some of it, and go to work, on philo
sophical principles, and produce a hu
morous lecture, but I find people are
different. What one man will laugh at,
another will call stupid. I know Sidney
Smith says wit is a quick surprise and
Sidney is right It's a switch off from
the general course of thought an un
common motion. Men laugh when a
horse kicks up, laugh at anything cut of
the ordinary line from, a bauged-up
stove-pipe hat to a banged-up sentence
in rhetoric. Arteinus Ward once spent
a few days with me on tbo Balfour plan--tatioo,
which I was running at Lkka
Providence, Louisiana, in 1806. One
day I caught him laughing at a grind
stone which jerked auk wabbled aa tho
negroes turned it to grind their hoes..
This eccentric wabble made the humor
ist laugh, when a regular grindstone
would have escaped his attention.
