I stopped from Fr' ay to Mgnday in St.
Louis, having some business to transact,
and then set out for Kansas, arriving here
to-day at 11 A. M. he distance is 322 miles,
and there arc few b tter roads or more com
fortable cars in the country than those be
tween Bt. Louis an this place.
Improvements o all kinds have made
good progress sines) I was here in 1867.
This city is growing rapidly on both sides of
the river, and business is brisk. Kansas'
City, too, is going ahead in true weearn
fashion, and now numbers. from fifteen to
twenty thousand &ople. There is a trian
gle here, at each angle of which stands a
thriving and ambitious city—Leavenwortbs.
Lawrence and Kahsas City—railroads form
ing the three sides, which are severally be
tween thirty and Forty miles long. The ter
ritory enclosed is 'very fertild, part prairie
hnd part heavily timbered. This triangle is
bounded on the east by the Missouri river,
and on the south by the Kansas. 8o far
Leavenworth is ahead; but the other two
may yet pass it. Each of the three is the
keen rival of both the others. ,
Thie has been a very prolific season in
this State. The wheat crop was very good.
The corn suffered somewhat from the ex
treme heat of July, but IS fair. Potatoes,
both sweet and common, are very abundant
and as good as I ever tasted. Onions, yams,
melons and beets, as I saw them in the
markets, exceeded anything that I ever met
with. Apples are plenty and very fine, but
the peaches ' laNwd luscious, are carried
about the streets IMthe wagon load. Al
though "as pleasant to the eye and as good
for food" as any I ever saw, I was told that
they were generally Seedlings. Their ex
cellence is owing to the soil and climate.
One gentleinan told me that for five suc
cessive y,earswhich was as' long as he had

Land is rising rapidly in price. Some
tracts of improved laud several miles from
town are held as high as thirty dollars an
acre—others at lower rates, of course, even
down to two or three dollars. Farms are
being bought up rapidly.
In this State politics are pretty much on
one side, and of course, there is little or no
excitement; but in Missouri the contest
is as active and earnest" probably as in
any other State in the Union. Our
friends; however, are quite confident of giv
ing the voteof the State to Grant by a very
decided majority. Two Congressional dis
tricts, one of which is general Pile's, are
hotly contested; and we: may, it is feared,
lose one of them by the conduct of a com
missioner of registration, who is letting in a
'flood of disfranchised rebels. Colored men
do not vote in Missouri. C.
The Ohio Stale Fair
- F -
The Nineteenth Annual Fair of the Ohio
State Board of Agrieulttire will be held ftt
Toledo, beginning on Monday, Septemher
21st, and closing on Friday, the 25th. The
groundsfselected are one mile west of the
depot, and are known as the Swayne track.
We observe that an important change in
reference to entries has been made, to take
effect at the coming fair. No charge what
ever is made as an entry fee for stock or
articles for exhibition. The rule now is,
"Any person may enter as many different
articles for exhibition as he or she may
own, in any of the ,departments free of
charge." No exhibitors.' tickets will be
issued. The Board wt I depend for revenue
from the fair, entirely upon receipts at the
gate, where an admit ance fee of twenty
five cents will be charged.
In consequence of this change it will at
once become apparent to exhibitors that the
desire to Increase the revenuehy receiving
entries out of season will no longer exist,
and those who desire to compete should be
governed accordingly. The corresponding
secretary, John H. Klippart, of Colambes,
Ohio, gives notice that he will attend to all
list of entries sent him before the fair, and
that no entries will be received after Mon
day, September 21. Articles wilt be re
ceived on the ground on and after_Saturday,
the 19th of September. Every exhibitor Is
required to have his articles on the grounds
and arranged by Tuesday, the 22d, and if
delayed beyond 12 o'clock M., of that day,

in sweepstakes, will be awarded to any aged
animal that has received the first premium
at former State or provincial exhibitions
either of this or of any other State.
The premium list is exceedingly full, and
is very liberal. There are seven $5O pre
miums offered for horses, four' $lOO premi
ums,, one $2OO premium, besides a great
number ranging from $4O to $5. Equally
liberal premiums are offered for cattle.

ing was called to order iherehad assembled
in the neighborhood of the stand an im
mense eencourse of Republican voters, who
tbersevinced their entbusieemtin the cause
of loyalty and justice.
The German Turner Band an& Prefessor
Pope were in.attendance, and' by their en
livening and soul.sttnring strrelns did much
to render the meeting interesting and sue
At 73; o'clock Mr. Jae. E. Brady took the
stand and proposed ther organization or the
meeting by the election of toe following of
ficers, which was - approrred :
. President—Gen. W. Blakely.
Vice .Presidents—D. H. Painter, Dr: Arm

Thos. Harper, Wm. J. Bane, G. J. Parkins,-
W. J. Madeira.
Secretaries—D. 8. Patterson, W. A. Fos
ter and reporters of the Republican press.
Gen. Blakely, on assuming the duties or
President, returned-his thanks to the audi
ence for the honor conferred upon him and'
in a felicitous manner introduced Hon.. P:
C. Shannon. - -
Mr. Shannon was received with vocifer
ous applause and commenced his remarks
by stating that he was an old line Demo
crat, and had acted with the Democratic
party from the corrimencement of his po
litical lite, through all the various fortunes
s hich had attended them; down to the
time when rebel vandals commenced their .
1 vain attempts to subvert the Government
by firing upon Fort Sumpter. It became
evident to his mind that the party which
controled the affairs of Staas for so many
years and had thus shown itselrto be in
competent' to govern wisely or well, had
not sufficient vitality in it to restore
or to save that Government in a time
when all powers must be put faith
in its , maintainance. :He left the
Democratic party then, because he would
not follow its leaders into the ranks of those
who were engaged in the attempt - to over
throw the best government which the
world ever saw. Ho left it because- it had
been "weighed in the balance and found
wanting." He left it because he desired
the salvation of his country and therpre
servation of all those rights and prisileges
whien it had always secured to its citizens.
Ile left it to join, heart and hand, with
these noble, loyal men of another party
who were willing to sacrifice all on the
altar of patriotism, end who lied evinced
such abilities and statesmanship as to im
press upon alt their capacity far saving the
country and governing it with that judg
ment and wisdom which would ensure• its
prosperity, happiness and power.
The speaker then referred to the Demo
cratic party, showing, by its record and the
material of which it was composedt.that it
was totally unworthy the Confidence of
atty loyal man or lover of his country,
touched on the bond question, ably argued
the justice and wisdom of the reconstruc
tion acts of Congress ) and closed with a fer
vent appeal to all to rally aroun&the stand
ard and make old Pennsylvania ring out in
thunder tones in Noeenaber for - those in--
corruptible patriots and accomplished
statesmen, Grant an&Colfax.
Mt. Shannon occupied nearly - an- hour
and a half, was listened - to with marked at—
tention by all, and rewarded at its close
with hearty applause. .
Loud calls were now made for Prof. W.
J.-Pope, who came forward and•sang "The
Miller and his Sons,:', which was received
with. roars of laughter.
At this juncture the torchlight proem--
sion.inade its appeazance and interrupted
the proceedings for a short time.
Quiet was at length restored and Prof.
Pope sang another humorous ballad„after
which. R. J. Powers, Esq., was introdliced
to the audience.
Mr. Powers congratulated the Republ
cans. present on- the large turnout and
hoped that it was but the precursor of what
would take place at the polls in November,
when the loyal masses would throng
around the ballot-box to elect to the high
est postlon in the nation the peoplets candl--
daree and the people's °halm. 11. 8. Grant
and Schuyler Colfax. - - •
The speaker then termed his attention to
the bond questioti, which he ably discussed'
imall its bearings for nearly an hour, show
ing up . ,the fallacies et, the Democracy on
this question, mad proving that the position
taken by the Ropublimn.partv on this paint
was the only just and °quit-abloom. The
gentleman was frequently applauded du
slug his' remarks,: and at the , close the
meeting adjourned with three cheers . ibr
the Republican candidates.
The promotion, whith took place in the
evening andloined liatile meeting, reflected
great credit. on the gentleman having in,
charge the necessary' arrangements.
