MADLSON; WIS., FRIDAY AFTERNOON, MAY 12, 1871. "NUMBER 215. STATE J( T 1 L. THE OFFICIAL' STATE PAPER Th Foreign Element From the census returns of 1870 it weuld appear that the largest proportion of foreign born pei sons in any of the States Is to be found in California. It stands thu : Natives a,83 Foreigners . . . . . S09,f Wisconsin comes next with this eihibii Natives 690,880 Foreigners 304,845 The States with the smallest foreign population would appear to be North Carolina and Yiiginia. The Utter, with a population of .1,211,838, has but 13,578 foreigners, while North Carolina, with 1,068,113 inhabitants, has but 8,022 foreign born. There are lew foreigners' in' the unthrifty South ; in faot, most of the residents there were boru within the borders of their respective States They are conservative and exclusive. They cling to old ideas and lack the activity that comes from aa influx of men. who. have brain, muscle and hope,; men who have shaken off the dead past and are seeking homes in new places. The natives are too illiberal there. They are afraid-of the ne ideas that immigrants from the North carry in. They call the Northerners 'carpet-bag gers," and persecute or kill them for exer cisine the right of free speech. The South will begin to develop her vast resources when her inhabitants become tolerant and judicious in their treatment of those seek ing homes there. The residents will even tually leara, perhaps, that no community can flourish where freedom of speech i suppressed. The Wlsronsin Items. Milwaukee Sentinel says that First Note of the Campaign. We copy the following from the Milwau kee A'evw, to show exactly how the thing looks to men up a tree. The New says ; The Democratic State Central Committee held a special meeting in this city yesterday. It was attended by the members of the committee, and by a number of leading Democrats and Democratic journalists, who were invited to take part in the consultations of the committee The condition of the parties in the State and the nation, the issues between the parties, and the general policy of the campaign were subjects of deliberation during a lengthy session, and a free interchange of views was had. Among other matters, the time of holding the State Convention, and the appointment of delegates were considered. It was determined with great unanimity to hold the convention at an early day probably August and that the convention should consist of two delegate from each Assembly district, thus abolishing the system of representation from Senatorial Districts. The sentiment appeared to be unanimous that the campaign should be made on the line issues as authoritatively stated by the convention, and no on dead, outside, or irrelevant issues provided by the enemy. In other words the Democrats propose to select the battle ground, and to define what we are fighting for, instead of leaving this duty to the other party. It appears to be conceded that the repub licans have material advantage in their ability to levy an enormous lectoneering cor-raption fund from a percentage on the salaried Siate Federal officers, and the same officials, with their hangers-on and dependants, constitute a formidable disciplined electioneering force for use in the canvass. This advantage must be overcome in the demand of an honest cause on an honest people, in placing the ticket at work in the field at an early day, and by an active campaign. ' "The demand of an honest cause on an honest people," and the prompt response of the honest people who come up and vote the straight Republican ticket is precisely what injures the Democrats. We are glad they are going to nominate candidates early ; it was the early worm that was caaght by the bird. an accident happened Wednesday evening to a laborer employed' at the Cay Vfcw Iron Works, named August Gatzky. While engaged in whitewashing the hoist eugirje-room, he stepped on to the uiachiuery, and his foot came in contact with a crank in motion. On examining the injured member the toes were found to be nearly crushed off, and the top of the foot was very badlv sruashed. It was found necessiry to ampu-tate.tho; loot Several weks ago a. little four year old son of Frederick Barelman was so badly scalded by the upsetting of a teakettle of boiling water, that he died of his injuries on Monday morning. . . .A promising youth one who promises very badly, about fifteen years old, was caught Wednesday afternoon by policeman Meyer, who had his eye on him, in the act of setting fire to au unoccupied building, owned by K. JN. Austin, e Esq., on Poplar'1 street "fle: was taken care of. His name is William Auer; he has served a term hi the House of Correetion.and cow will probably prove a successful candidate for the Reform School. The FJIihorn Independent says the an nual reunion of the old settlers of Walworth and adjoining counties, will be held at the Court House Tark, in Elkhorn, on the 14th day of June, 1871,-' at ten o'clock A.?

The loss of millions of dollars' worth of property in L ouisiana, and the utter devastation of an immense district of fertile lands, by the Bonnet Carre crevasse, is all chargeable to the idiocy of a cooper and the stupid inaction of his neighbors. The cooper cut a roadway through the levee for his own convenience, and when the water rose, attempted to stop the hole with a board. Then the people turned out and proposed to barricade the mailing waters with an old flat boat; but, while they were quarreling about the best position in which . to sink the boat, the swelling tide swept the object of the dispute through the gap. The ' consequences of this untimely difference of opinion have been graphically snown in re cent telegrams. , At the Womu's Suffrage Convention in New York, yesterday, Mrs. Elizabith Cady Stanton said "the Republican party has done its work, and should now be gathered to its father." The party is too young to think of being "gathered" yet; beiides, its father is still alive, we believe. Mrs. Stanton talks like a mother-in-law : who is anxious to get a child out of the wrld, that she may enjoy its property. i ' Ritiiujb Statistics. The statistics in regard to the revenue collected from spirits ii Indiana and the northern district of Ohio, for the nine months ending March 81, 1871, compared with the same time last year, show a decrease of 7 6-10 per cent, in the north-rn district of Ohio, while Indiana has increased 18 per cent. The whole gain in Indiana is 402,492.95 ; loss in Northern Ohio, $72,121.33. from his proprietor in Charleston, twelve years ago. Revkrdy Johnsos, the negotiator of the old Johnson-Clarendon treaty, commends tbejtreatyjof Washington and favors its ratification, Mr. John Green, of New York city, is to pay for a new library building for Prince ton College. He has made uo restrictions as to the expense, and it is estimated that the building will cost about $100,000. Mrs. Laura Fair, the California murderess, paid her lawyers $12,000 for her defense, and it wasn't a particularly good article of defense either, for the jury voted that she ought to be hanged for not having better lawyers, probably. The Russian minister has advices that the Russian prince has postponed his visit to this country till Ociober next. All the preparations in 1 progress for giving him a grand reception have been abandoned. The lat-3 Senator Howard's' will has been admitted to probate, and divides his property among his children, except Mrs. Uildukth, of Chicago, who has srwspecial bequest.

The Queen of Pers'a, for a year past has ben missing, piece .by piece, ber most valuable jewelry, and no trace of the thief them drank class alter class of whisky, until he fell dead upon the floor. His companions kept up the carousal for several hours after his death. Jacob Black, the keeper of the saloon, was arrested for keeping a nuisance, but the jury returued a verdict of not guilty. Judge Chase administered them a very severe rebuke. A letter received in Baltimore, from Cap tain Griffith, of the American Schooner Lilliat, of Stockton, Me., states that ' his ; vessel has been seized at Sagua la Grande, Cuba, by the Spanish Aiit.hort.ies, and- him-telf imprisoned in a filthy pen. He does noi. know for what cause the seizure was made, and there is ne prospect of release or even a trial or statement of the' charges against him. u.' " v r A womsn in Rockford, 111., named Abbey Rutledere has lately become violently insane and been removed to the asylum. This sad calamity is said to be the result of overwork and anxiety for the care of her children, who are thrown entirely upon her for support by the desertion of her husband, who is no livire: in the far west somewhere with an other "affinity." Three children were burned to death at Auburn, New York, on the 8th inst . They were at play in an outhouse where there was a barrel of fireworks, which exploded. It ia presumed that they, with matches, set fire to the barrel. Two of the children were, probably, instantly killed. The third lingered some hours. The youngest child, aged four years, was the son of Mitchell AJ Gilder. The others were the children of McCarty, of Capitol street, where the accident occurred. A lady named. Uiggins, af-i ter visiting the scene of the disaster, was so shocked by the horrible sight that sho died , at 10 o'clock the same evening. j Gov. Palmer,- of Illinois, executed an acS of the Legislature of 1853, for the relief of Mrs. Leanna Knox, ; which . has stood for nearly twenty years in abeyance. The case has a curious history. Leanna Knox was a free colored woman of Kentucky, and Josa Kr. ox was a slave. - There Leanna married him, and having money,bought his freedom'. They removed to Springfield, ; where su? bought real estate, which she had deeded to him. -' He died without any heirs, and half the property escheated to tho State. li 1853 the Legislature passed an act restoring to the womati the property which her own aeans had bought. .- , , , . j could possibly be discovered. The other day the diamond rings and bracelets were all found among the toys of one of her little grandchildren, who had confiscated them for the benefit of her dolls. ; " The confederate graves in Cavehill cemetery, Louisville, were formally . deco rated on the 1 0th. An immense crowd was present, and every grave was beautifully bestrewed wit'j flowers and evergreens. A handsome sum was collected to place marble head stones to each grave. The Prinoees Dora D'Istba is said to be the most learned woman in the world,, reads and speaks fifteen different languages, has written novels, historical, philosophical annd philological works, is an honorary number of the acidemiesand learned sciences, but she cannot build a loaf of bread, Jcsfph Gomknqer, aged 88 years, a soldier or the war of 1812, died on Thursday, in Philadelphia. He leaves a widow aged 86 years, 16 children, 68 grandchildren, 88 great-grandchildren, and 2 great, great-granchildrenin all 174. 4- Sumner's Paradise. An Alaska corres- pondent thus describes the delectable coun try over which Mr. Sumner went into such ecstasies : "Hundreds of people have been to Alaska, have looked, and have gone away despairing. There has been no immigration except camp followers, who tumble in after the armies. The population is diminishing, and there has been no improvement under American occupation. . - Since the withdrawal of the Russian Company, the fur business at Sitka has ceased. Thd Russian population left behind with a sum of money as a gratuity to each person, has spent the gratuity, and now lives upon the American commissary department. The trade stores, shops and 'deadfalls' have deceased. Alaska, in short, is cut off by insurmountable bar riers from that class of American pioneers who hitch up their teams and penetrate to the remotest parts. To get to the territory by water requires money in hand, and when one gets there the place is uncoogenial to a good class of pioneers. The Indians arq the purest North American type of savages, and possess villainous traits of character, committing atrocious murders for the sake of plunder and revenge, but thev do not scalp and kill for mere bravado, they are large, stalwart, sharp, bright and aquatic, eating fish and living at the water's edgs rejoicicg in feudc, and their weapons are firearm, chiefly the Hudson Bay flint muskets, and knives. They make hereditary slaves of prisoners. Their houses are built of hewn timber, and are large and well conducted. They are fond of rum. A gunboat is requisite to move into the shallow water among the Indians. The report recommends that the Indians' habitations and canoes be destroyed whenever they become . noisy. Sitka cannot be maintained without a garri son of 100 men. Sitka has a harbor that can be entered without a pilot, and could easily be taken by an enemy, and is the only harbor of any consequence."

The Tilegrafh has a special dispatch from Frankfort on-the-Maine, containing the following statement : "The Germans, in the treaty just concluded, promised to send back to France at oi.ee all the prisoners that entered Germany. A French loan of one milliards francs has been secured by the Frankfort bankers. Paris forts, still held by the German troops, are to be immediately evacuated. The cities of Nancy, Belf'ort and Longvey are to be retained by the Germans till the conditions of peace are fulfilled." A special dispatch from Pans says Gen. Rossel has been arrested, and General Dombrowsky is in supreme command. The Yersaillists are now on the Bois de Balongne. It is reported that Bismarck promised to relinquiah one niillard of the war indemnity, on condition that France agrees to immunity for private property captured on the sea. Inconsequence of a proclamation just issued by the commune, the furniture and property of Thiers hits been seized, and bis residence in Paris demolished.

W. bimon- ton, General Ag nt of the Associated Press, to Cyrus W. Field, exposing the practice of the cabla management in London of throwing the cable busine.-s out of the order as filed and diueiiniinating in its transmission. The concluding paragraph of Simonton's letter, which suggests grave complaint against the cable company, is aa follows : The multiplicity ot errors in the service between London and Xiew lork, averar,in? about six serious onej per day in our busi ness, is of iUelf no slight discouragement: but if to this be added the disarrangement of dispatches as to the order of transmission ccording to the will or caprice of the man ager at either end of tha line; if neither legal enactment nor regard for the simplest principles of commercial in'egrity and fairness in cable management can insure its patrons the advantage which his activity and enterprise have earned, you must see that public confidence is at an end until mere snau oe new means ot establishing a trans-Atlantic cable. The communication is conducted on fair principles. 1 The report of an alleged attempt to throw an express train fram the track on the Erie Railroad, near Derosit, is a malic ious fabrication without the' slightest foundation of fct, and was evidently concocted by designing parties to injure the business of the road.

Mar 11. Sir John Frederick William Hercf.ell. an only son of the great Astronomer, and Lim-elf an Astronomer cf world wide recuLe 1. died this morning, at the use of Edmonia Lewis. Edvonia Lewis, the colored sculptor, residing at Rom, , is attracting considerable attention just now. A correspondent of the Revolution says of her: "Miss LewiB is one of the few sculptors whom no one charges with having assistance in her -vork. Every one admits that whether good or bad, her marbles are all her own. So determined is she to avoid all occasions for detraction, that she even 'puts up' her clay ; a work purely mechanical, and one of great drugery, which scarcely any male sculptor does for himself. It is a very hard and very fatiguing process, for it consists in the piling up of misses of wet clay into a vague outline of a human figure, of which the sculptor brings the model into form and beauty. If Miss Lewis were aot very stroDg, she could not do this, and it setms to us an unnecessary exp'enaiture of her physical powers. Edmonia Lewis ie below the medium height; her complexion and fe-tures betray herAfrican origin; her hair is more of the Indian type, black, straight and abundant. fcne wens a rea eap m her studio, which is very picturesque and effective ; her face is a bright, intelligent and expressive one. Her manners are child like, simple and most a inning and pleasing. She has the Droud spirit of her Indian ancestor, and if the has more of the African in her personal appearance, she has more of the Indian in her character. She ia one of the most inter esting of our American women here, and we are glad to know that she is fast winning fame and fortune. There is something in human nature, poor as it is, which makes every one admire a brae and heroic spirit ; and if people are rot always ready to lend helping band to struggling genius, tbey are all eager to applaud when those straggles arj crowned with sui cess. The hour of applause has come to Edmonia Lewis." . The Soarta Herald says that Hon. Hailow Orton is in train ns for the race for the Demo cratic nomination for Governor of this State next tall. La Orosse Leader. We think we are wai-ranted in asvin? that Judge Orton is not "in training" for that nomination, or for any other position of a political character. ; He has never eonght office, though office haa oftsn sought him and he has honoi-ed every office that he has filled. He is not a politician, and he has the honesty and ability to fill any office, but it is certain ne is not a candidate for Milwaukee JSrev$. any. TUB EX(iLIH TREATY. New York. May 12. The Tribune1 Washington special says that there are very few who criticise the treatv ot Washington as a whole, but there are some points waich will arise in the debate. They will relate principally to the articles which provide for the settlement of claims of British subjects. Considerable surprise is expressed by Senator Sumner and one or two others, that the American Commissioners did not insist that Great Britain should submit p schedule of the claims of her subjects, so that it might be definitely known of what kind they are, what they amount to, and that they will not include any of those to which the American people object. Earl Granville's letter to Lord Lyons about the claims of British subjects in France is cited to show that there is no occasion to fear that they wil be large ; but a reply to this assurance is, that we are not sure that England will abide by these precedents, and that lc would have been mud more satisfactory to have had these points definitely settled in the treaty itself. To show that these claims may be very considerable in amount, it is said $1,500,000 is involved in the case of the PeUr Hoff alone, which was captured in the Rio del Norte acd condemned. Caleb Cush'ng Is reported to have said, within a : cay or two, that this case has already been before the Supreme Court, aud an opinion against the United States given. A law firm in this city has $600,000 in claims for tobacco captured on vessels which were a few hours late in getting away from Norfolk' and other ports when the blockade was declared. GREAT BRITAIN London, May 11. It is thought that the trial of Boltou and Park, two of the men implicated in the woman personation affair last summer, will fail at the present term, as this sitting of the court will expire at midnight Saturday, and there are yet a score of witnesses to be examined. The proceedings will probably have to be commenced de novo some months hence. In the House of Commons, this evening, Mr. Monsell, Postmaster General, expressed his inability to explain why the Cunard Steamship Company declines to bring American mail. ' The array regulation bill was debated at length. ' '; In the House of Lords, in reply to a question from the opposition, Earl Granville declined to state whether English claims on the United States would be adjudicated in England. m a MAR1.E. - .

The referee in the Mace-Coburn fight, has decided for the men to meet at 10 o'clock to-morrow at Erie, Pa., where be will name the fighting ground. Dick Hollinwood, of Naw York, is referee. New York-, May 11. The fight between Coburn and Mace was prevented by the Canadian authorities. The men, in splendid condition, entered the ring shortly after noon. During the first round, and before a blow was struck, the Sheriff and County Jjdge, backed by a number of soldiers from Simcoe, dispersed the crowd, who fled in everv direction. The fight is postponed indefinitely. Erib, Pa., May 12. The mill yesterday between Mace and Co-burn was interrupted in the first round by the militia, and was, therefore, undecided. The ring was pitche J at Hay Creek, about 21 J miles from Port Dover, Canada. The principals left Erie about 2 o'clock tester-day morning, Mace in the propeller Winona, and Coburn on the Xew York.
