General Sherman was caught by
an American correspondent repre
senting the Wan, newspaper, at Ge
neva, and interviewed as to his per
sonal experience On _the three conti
nents,he has partially visited, and
also as to tho impression lie formed
of the rulers and tho people with
whom he came in contact. A brief
synopsis of all this was telegraphed,
but its interest leads as to dip into
it more hugely than.. the Associated
Press. Gen. Sherman is an acute
observer, and has an-off-hand way of
putting things that goes to the mar
row of the subject. Starting at Gib
raltar, the General passed through
Spain, France, Italy,Tak pt, part of
Greece, Russia, Austria, Germany
and Switzerland. r Evmwliere he
was received with cordi ali ty . except
in Berlin, where,if we credit tho New
York Tribune's letter, the reception
was cool and restricted by official
formalities such as he experienced in
no other capital.
Switzerland struck General Sher
main by its beauty and grandeur,and
also its smallness. He said:
"Yon seemtto be in the territor
at one moment and all but out of'' it
the next.' The cultivation is wonder-
fnl; not an acre of waste land,except,
of course, on the sides of the monn-
tains, and even there the spade has
been at work on all the gentler slopes.
But, according to my American no-
tions, the yield would scarcely seem
proportioned to the imulertaity of the
labor. Indeed, I have been every
where struck with . the immense pains
people—the mass of people—take for
their living; the prodigality of effort
as contrasted with the slightness of
the reward. In many countries the
agriculture in its results, suggests a
mere gleaning of a soil of which past
centuries have had the full crop.'
The impressions Of Russia received
by the General are very interesting,
especially in regard to its advance
ment in the arts of civilization. He
gave his experience as follows:
'rem assure you that even-in the
rather remote districts of Russia I
reached I found churches, schools
and all the essential institutions of a
growing civilization. I hardly saw
any country---always excepting my
own—which is so manifestly growing
under one's eyes. All sorts of great
experiments seem to be in progress,
social experiments pr,:mtilhi;ig, but
not a few of the political kind. It is
not generally known, for instance,
that in Russia there ' has existed for
centuries, and still exists to-day, the
type of that communal organization
which appears to have such fascina
tion for the Paris "Reds." With the
Russians it is an institution dating
from a period, if not of barbarism, at
least of the dawn of civilization. The
commune there sprang him the nat
ural and indeed almost inevitable as
sociation of the country people living
in a particular district. Before rail
ways were made, and when there
were fewer roads than now, such a
little community would bo almost
completely isolated. It was only a
lamer family living in the Wilderness,
and living under such conditions as
to make individual enterprise nearly
impossible. A division of duties
took place in accordance with these
conditions. The men worked in
common at some trade, and the pro
duce of their united labor was sold
once a year at one of the groat fairs,
generally Nijni Novgorod.
"The communal institution still
exists in some districts,
has of course been somewhat modifi
ed by the many changes incidental to
emancipation. Its great principle is,
if not exactly a common, at least a
kind of equal ownersphip of the soil.
A man on his coming of age has a
certain share of land alloted to him,
and when the community has so in
creased as to have used up all its al
lotable land a new commune is found
ed in another district This offshoot
retains the name of its parent stock,
and, in like manner, all the offshoots
from it bear 'some common designa
tion; so that you have perfect gene
alogy of comMunities, all pointing to
an origin in a very limited number
indeed. The facility with which the
people obtain a kind of part owner

thing in Russia, and it points to a
future in that country in some re

The Czar of Russia, and in fact all
the sovereigns with whom Gen. Sher
man came in contact, struck him as
hard workers. The reverence and
affection of the Russians for Alexan

ernmer.t best suited to the needs of
the empire. On this point he said:

present too young a country (in a
certain sense) for a theoretical Tier
perfection of polity . There is so
much for the people to do that a very
simple and primitive form of
government sulkss for them. There
are so many material problems to
salve that the great mass of the na
tion have neither leisure nor inclina
tion for_ politicalspend , ation. Asia
has to be united to Europe by roads,
by telegraphs, by identity of social
life and manners. Whole provinces
have to be peopled, surveyed, plant
ed, or cleared. Capitals have to be
built, towns made out of villeges.and
villages out of rows of tents. In the
older countries of Europe all this
has been secemylished, and the
problem is what is to be done with
the accumulations of labor? When
Russia becomes like Italy or Spain,
that question may arise in its turn,
but there is no immediate prospect
of,.it just now. The government is
fally on a level of intelligence) with
even the most civilized parts of the
empire, and to the least civilized in
its guiding, srudaining. promoting
power, it must seem lace an emana
tion of superior intelligence. _ For
this reason, I suppose, one hears of
so few serious rebellions among the
many races subject to the Russian
sway. The needs.of these races are
BO great and their own helplessness
is so extreme that \ they must be

power which sapplies them with that
initiative in civilizatic" m whicif they
could never find in themselves."
'General Sherman was favorably
impressed with the Khedive of Egypt,
from whom he received marked ab
-tention and civility. We quote:
"He (the Khedive) is a ruler who
personally superintends the work of
government.. He is well , educated
abd a perfect man of the world, fully
alive to the fact that hii own inter
est lies in furthering the development
of his people. 'He takes an active
interest in trade and manufactures.
He is ono of the greatest sugar plant
ers in his own dominions. During
our civil war, you will remember, he
set to work to raise cotton for the
English market. V. hen the war was
the Egyptian trade in cotton
came to a standstill, but a very hand--
some profit had been made out of it
in the meantime. Then the land re
verted.to its original uses, and the
old cotton fields were planted for
produce better suited to climate and
soil. The growing of sugar is now
the Khedive's favorite scheme. I
called on him one day and found him
sitting at a table covered with sever
al varieties of cane and specimen jars
of the sugar extracted from them.
He laughed and said I might suppose
he had turned grocer, and then ho
went on to talk about his plantation,
and showed as much practical know
ledge as if ho had been at that kind
of farming all his, life."
In Egypt, as in Russia, the Gen
eral thought the existing government

Of the Gorman army, the General
while in Berlin made every investi
gation available to him, and gives
his observations" as follows:
"It is unquestionably the -finest
army in the world, and no Wonder, if
we consider the years it has taken
them to make it. It is a perfect ma
chine of war. The men who have
recreated it have made every separate
force aptitude and- impulse that can
contribute to military success the
subject of the most rigorously cam
tific. study. Originality is only a now
form of truth, and truth is generally
the reward of painstaking thought.
By hard thinking and close observa
tion of the mental as well as the bod
ily habits of, men the Prussians have
established a system eiactly adapted
to their national traditions, tempera
ment, and moral and political organ
izations. The same study would
yield other results as applied to oth
er countries, and therefore an imita
tion of the Prussian scheme in its
details instead of in its spirit would,
in my opinion, be a mistake.
"The most striking thing about it
is the new recognition in has given
to individuality in tha soldier. The
army is an aggr e gate of localized and
therefore individualized corps, and
every man in every corps is taught
to combine a sense of personal res
ponsibility and self-reliance with_the
instinct of military obedience. It is
not only an army of thousands, but
an army of units. And this I take to
be the nicest military problem in the
whole range. It has often been talk
ed about before, but perhaps never
fairly grappled with. I do not say
the Prussians have completely solved
it; but they have gone further than
any nation I know of. You may talk
contemptuously of the Prussian dril
ling; but , their idea seems to be to
drill men to do without drill; in fact
they have made their drilling so thor
ough that it has become a kind of
synonym for the aggregate of all the
forces of their varied culture, and
that culture has the union of the
most thorough individuality with the
most thorough subordination for its
highest end and aim."
Of France the General had not
seen much, and was therefore reti
cent in his opinions. Everything,
the army especially, appeared to be
in a state of transition.

war was but a repetition of his course

defender of secession; he changed to
a vigorous champion of the war, and
thereafter was forever recklessly
making proposals for peace and as
recklessly withdrawing them—mak

ty.y.ears he has been an uncompro

that kind of a fight was forced upon

in Chicago, voting not for Lincoln,
nor for Chase, but for old Edward
Bates of Missouri, one of the fossils
of the slave party. He was then the
associate and co-laborer of that oth

ver I came to 'this place;. Which
about thirty miles diststnt, and about
the same distance from the moun
tains as Denver. - Erie is a small coal -
mining town of abbnt 200 inhabitants -
and about 80 buildings, - nearly all of
which have been put up within two •
years. There is ono hotel, several
stores, and boarding 'and dwelling
honks -to accommodate. the people,
here and the traveling public. There -
''is a railroad completed- as far as
here, and is to be extended to Bonl
der City, which place 'I shall speakof
r hereafter. The coal fields here are '-
I'very extensive, and promise, to be of
'great value.' -The mines are operat
ed chiefly by Eastern companiei. • _
1 Some of the 'principal stockholders
live in Binghampton, N. Y. On ac:
count of4here being no water, 'there
are no Vegetables raised here, not
even FO much as a turnip or - onion ;
hconsequently there is
-a very good
market here for the farmers sound
r iabout. The farming land here is as
good as any in the country. 'I have
tried to investigate thoroughly the
advantages and disadvantages of the
country, and will try and tell what I
" know'abont" Colorado farming in
I will tell you of a short visit I
matle•to the mountains a short time
ago: , I left here and went to Boni- -
r tler`City, which place is about twelve
miles distant, situated at the base- of
the Rocky Mountains and mouth of
Boulder Creek' Canyon. This is the
capital of Boulder county: From
hero I went up the canyon about 20
miles and stopped for the night at
Brownsville. The -scenery in this
canyon is unsurpassed by. any . I ever .
saw. .Anrono'whe could view the
mighty rocks towering hundreds and
thousands of feet, in an almost per
pendicular ascent, with the trees
projecting from thaorevices, and the
water rushing and roaringdown over
such mighty precipices, all in ono
grand scene, and then dare to say,
" There is no God r—is worse than
an. infidel. At Brow - mine are situ
ated the quartz mills of a_silver
ing company. `"From" here - I took a
southerly direction across the range
to Black Hawk and Central City.
These are gold-mining towns, situat
ed abOnt twenty-five miles from the
eastern base of the mountains. They
are closely connected to each other;
and remind me of Mauch Chunk,
Pa.; more than any other place with
in my acquaintance. - Central City
is the capital of Gilpin county. And
there I spent the Sabbath, and for
the first time since I left, l'etles)lva
nia, had the -pleasure of attending
church. The churches and school
houses are among the best in the
territory. The " Teller House " is .
the largest hotel in Colorado • being
entirely new, it is a fine place to
stop. Monday, July 1, was occupied - -
in looking around -the mines. I
gathered some specimens, some .of
which I will perhaps present to you,
if I ever-return East. Them are' a
goodly number of mines in operation
- here, from which theAnartz rock is.
,taken out and drawn to mills, where
it is crushed, and the gold separated
'from the rock. - In company with a
Miesouri gentleinan, I went into one
tunnel called the "13obtail," a dis
tance of about 750 feet. Any one
who is accustomed.to the moan
lain air can hardly breathe, because
of the air being so light: One promi;
nent feature is the lakes, -which are-'
q_nite plenty along the top of the
(range. What would on think to
tread on snow on the . tirst of July?
;This I did, and there la any qnanbty
of it in the mountains yet, and there I
[will be - all Summer. returned to
the valley to spend Fourth, which
I puseed'oll very quietly here. There
I l were several of tis in a party, who -
I went out on teblf . tff in the evening to
see an illumination from Pike's Peak,
,but could not,- it being a little too
far away, a distance of about one
hundred miles. Of those in tho par
' ty, there were Judge Kattell of Bing
lhamton, Rev. 11. j. Van Talkenburg,
Mrs. Wallis, - formerly of Owego, who
now reside here; and Mrs. Evans and
daughter, of Owego, and others..
I I Hoping that neither , your own. pa
11tience, nor that of your readers, may
ilbe exhausted by reading this, I will
'close. My next will be "what I
11:now abut [Colorado] farming."
Yours truly, -
W. W. Conran.
