ALPENA WEEKLY ARGUS. WeJncadaty August 29, 1877. Hardest expectations in Minne sota have been more than reauzeu in the y'u as ascertained since thrashing began. The wheat crop of this wonderful crain-producing State la set down at the enormous total of 35,000,000 bushels, leaving a surplus for export of from -o nOiVOOO tn 28.000.000 bushels. The average yield thoughout the State is now estimated at twenty bubh els to the acre.

Iowa rejoices in surplus pro ducts for its farmers this year amounting in value to The surplus includes 32,500,000 buebelsof wheat, 21,714,7 1 3 bush els of corn, 2,750,000 bogs, 420,000 bead of cattle, 12,857,808 bushels of oats, 3,000,000 bushels of bar ley, 500,000 tons of bay, 1,500,000 bushels of potatoes, 30,000 horses, 80,000 barrels of flour, and pounds of butter, eggs, poultry, etc. Vanderbilts' $100,000 will be distributed among 8,904 men. The division as made by General Auditor Chambers gives the passenger conductors each $20; train baggagemen, $10; brakemeu, freight conductors, $15 engineers, $30; firemen, $15; flagman, switchmen, $9 laborers and watchmen, $7 mechanics, $14 foremen, $16; track foremen, $11; all others, $9. This is just about equivalent to three months' restoration of the 10 per cent, reduction. Liverpool, England, boasts itself of being the most economical city in the world in the use of water suppled by water works.

By tbe use of a water meter invented by the engineer of the works, it has reduced the water consumption from 33.58 gallons per capita per day, which was the rate before the meter was applied, to 16.14 gallons per head in 1876, and thus far for tbe present year 14.20 gallons. Most of tbe larger cities in the United States consume at least four times the latter rate daily per capita. The Omaba Indians, in Nebraska, according to tbe report of the agent there, make a very fair showing of this year's work. They number about 1,000, and will raise this year 9,000 bushels of wheat, 600 bushels of oats, 5,000 bushels of corn, and 850 bushels of tur onions, etc. Some of these Indians receive small annuities from tbe government, but as a rale tbey are 6elf-6upporting, at least tbat portion of tbem living after tbe manner of the whites.

If the Indians generally could be induced to live after tbe manner of the whites, the Indian problem would be easy of solution; but the trouble is that very few of them will, and only upon compulsion. Steerage Diet. Each emigrant has a contract ticket which stipulates for his transportation to New York in consideration of four, five or six guineas, according to the current rate of fare. Tbe company en gages to provide a full 6upply of wholesome provisions, cooked and served by its stewards, and tho passenger is required to provide himself with bedding and cooking utensils. The weekly allowance of food for each adult is prescribed by the government and printed on the contract ticket as follows: 'Twenty-one quarts of water, three and a half pounds of bread, one pound of wheaten flour, one pound and a half of oat meal, rice and peas, two pounds of potatoes, one and a quarter pounds of beef, one pound of pork, two ounces of tea, one pound of sugar, two ounces of salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar.1 Scribner.

Oar Wheat Crop and the War. From the New York World. Russia's difficulty is our oppor tunity. It is announced tbat the export of wheat usually sent from the northern ports will be seriously diminished in consequence of the war, and that the exports from tbe southern ports will be cut off altogether. The London Economist, in the last number at band, on the authority of a London expert, treats the "cessation of shipments from the south of Russia9 as a foregone conclusion, and affirms tbat there Is reason to believe that both the English crop and tbe French will be deficient tbat is to say, tbe demand for imported trheat rill be greater than usuilj both in France and England, and the chief source of supply will be cut off.

It is perhaps useless to speculate how much the diminution will be in the exports from the northern ports of Kussia, but the usual supply from that source is not much more than half the supply from the southern ports, which is now absolutely cut off. The proportion, taking the average of the years lbil-o inclusive, was al most exactly as one to two. With tho shortness of the crops or cveu with an averago crop in Central and Western Europe it seems therefore, that at least two-thirds of the wheat usually shipped from Kussia to England aud France will be called for from this country. The importance of this virtually new outlet for our surplus may be judged by the fact that the t-xport of wheat from Itussia to England alone for tho live years named above was of the averago value of 10,000,000, or almost the same as our own export of wheat for tho same years. Such an access to our trade as a doubling of our export of wheat would be of great importance to us at auy time.

At this time it is of vast importance. Of our own ability to meet this increased demand the assurance of our maguiliceut wheat crop loaves us no doubt. It is the opinion of careful exports that the surplus of the crop available for exportation will be between eighty millions and one hundred millions of bushels. The promise of a market in Europe for so large a share of it is a moro solid assurance of better times than almost any other assurance that could be given to us. This blessing has come to us undeserved.

That we should get a share of the Russian wheat trade happens to be our good fortune and the misfortune of Russia. To keep it will require wisdom in the relaxing of our abominable com mercial laws. We do not even now get the full benefit of our in creased export, for our navigation laws have made it impossible that Americans should get tbe profit of handling and' transporting to its market the surplus of this great harvest. But if Congress does its duty what is now a windfall may become a 6teady and permanent source of prosperity. War News! Special Correspondence from the iscat oj War.

Silt. CLUTCHS, Correspondent. London, August 20. A correspondent telegraphs: Independently of retreats being made necessary by the disaster at Plevna, General Gourkr's forces were over whelmed by superior forces of Turks, and although the Russians gained a brillant victory at Yemi-Saghra, July 30th, Gen. Gourka was compelled to retreat the following day, although in sight of Eski-Saghra, where he was obliged to leave the Bulgarian legion, operating as a separate body, to their fate.

Of the Bulgarian legion, which was originally 1,60 strong, only 400 or 50U managed to reach Schipka Pass. Exclusive of the Bulgarian loss Gen. Gourka lost 3,000 men in the fighting of the COth and 31st of July. During Gourka's retreat through the narrow Dalboka and Hainkoi Passes, which was accomplished on the 2d tho wounded died like flies from the jolting of their conveyances and exposure. Halo men succumbed from fatigue and sun-stroke.

Tho Russian cavalry is now all on the north side of the Balkans. The column, consisting of the Bulgarian legion, two batteries and three regiments of cavalry, were to march from Eski-Saghra. The central column, under Gen. Gourka himself, consisting of a rifle brigade, a regiment of Cos-sacks and four batteries, marched from Kaza-wolik. Tbe left column of five battalions of infantry, two batteries and some Cossacks marched from Hainkoi pass, the objective point being Yeni-Saghra.

The result was the destruction of the Bulgarians and rout of Gourka, who had, however, previously effected a junction with the left column. Gourka marched upon Dzuronli, on the road to Eski- Sarhra, ignorant of the fact that some thirty thousand Turks confronted bim. Turkish batteries swept tbe road, nevertheless Gourka came into action, sending forward five battaltion of infantry covered by tbe artillery. He bad forty-eight horses killed in one battery and eight in another. The Turks made a desperate attempt to turn his flank, but were repuls ed by tbe assistance of Prince Leuchtenberg's cavalry, who cut their way out from Eski-Ssgbra, wbere the Bulgarians were beset by 20,000 Turks.

Goukft, tnall as was his force, resolved on an at tempt to succor them, and in the meantime determined to maintain bis position, but his resolution quailed before the appearance of two massive columns of Tuiks marching on his flank and rear, and he had to leave the Bulgarians to shift for themselves and make good bis own retreat. St. Petersburg, August 21. A special to the Golos, reproduced by the official Russian Agency, admits that the Russian loses in tho two battlps before Plevna were b.OOO to 10,000 men, half of whom were killed or seriously wounded. About 5,000 are in the hospitals at SUtova, Simuitza and Turna-Magurelli.

Of two hundred persons attached to the Red Cross ambulances, forty were killed while collecting tho wounded. London, August 21. The Daily News' correspondent at Russian headquarters explains tho mystification which has arisen concerning the reported capture of Hainkoi Pass by the Turks. He says on the ICth inst. a column of Suleiman Pasha's force attempted strenuously to force the pass.

It has boon reported that they were successful, but though the column did indeed force a way into the defile it was there so roughly handled by the Russian artillery and the regiment holding the pass that it was compelled to retire. The Times Vienna correspondent remarks in relation to the attack of Sbipka Pass that all along the main range of the Balkans, especially among the Tundja-Valley, the face of the mountains is precipitous rocks, through which the road leads up in 6teep curves. However much the bulk of Suleiman Pasha's forces may have been inured to mountain warfare, and however heroic the efforts made within the last two days may have been, it will be little short of a miracle if they should ultimately succeed in carrying the pass. Constantinople, August 21. Suleiman Pasha telegraphs that August 21st three of his brigades ascended the heights of Sbipka Pass, and in ppite of a thower of Russian projectiles drove back the Russian outpost, and advanced to within 100 yards of the enemy's intrenchmuut.

There was desperate fighting for fourteen hours, aud although the Turks retained the ground they conquered the enemy still held their fortified positions, which were defended by fourteen cannon and a large force. A telegram concludes: Tomorrow we tball bring up our siege guns and renew tho struggle. We hope to be succssful. London, August 21. Bulletins from the Russian General commanding at Shipka Pass show that August 22d tho Turks erected two batteries of long range artillery ami made trenches through which they approached the Russian position.

The Russian loss August 21st was 200 and on the 22d much less. The latest bulletin recounts the operations of Thursday. It says the Turkish fire commenced at half-past 4 in tho morning and lasted till noon. Meanwhile the Turks made several desperate assaults but were repulsed. Our heroes did cot yield a foot.

At noon the firing slackened and tbe reserves under Radetzki began to arrive. Our loses have been great. MISCELLANEOUS. Fifty thousand shirts, on which are printed extracts from tho Koran in blue characters, and as many woolen waistcoats, whereupon is emblazoned the Prophet's seal, are being manufactured in Paris for the Turkish soldiers. This will give the Turks many literay advantages they never before possessed.

Ten car loads of ammunition, 140 tons in all, have been loaded upon the steamer John Bramhall at tbe Winchester rifle works, New Haven. The destination is Turkey. The Imperial Guard of Russia, which is now on its way to the seat of war in Turkey, is a good-sized army in itself. It consists of three divisions of infantry, with a brigade of artillery attached to each division, a brigade of rifles, and three divisions of cavalry, with two batteries of horse artillery attached to each. Altogether it numbers 77,097 men of all ranks and arms of the service, and at its full strength can place in the field 120 infantry, 7,497 cavalry, 144 field guns, and thirty-six horse-artillery guns.

The Czarowitch is commander of tbe Guard. Mukhtar Pasha, who has killed a good many Russians by telegraph, reports 4,000 Russians killed and wounded, at Keziltepe, in Asia, on the 25th. A large quantity of and ammunition is said to hare been captured by the Turk. A TurkMi loss of 1,200 killed and wounded is admitted. The Russians admit a loss of 303 killed and wounded at Agbas-lrs, Europe, on the 23rd.

Despatches, dated August 27th, show tbat the fighting at Schipka pass, in tho Balkan mountains, was still waging. Tho Turks were the attacking party. The Russians admit a loss of 923 wounded. The number killed is not known. Both parties claim to bo bueccssfuL official.
