A f jw days since, our young friend,
Sidney D. Richardson, received the
following circular, together with the
sealed envelopes therein mentioned.
But Mr. Richardson, not wishing to
invest in this enterprise, has kindly
handed us the circular for publication
for the benefit of Messrs. Charles
Elmer Ss Co. It read 3 thus :
VriLLIAMSBCRG, XgW YOKE, 1SG7.
We would like to introduce our
business in your neighborhood, and
thinking that you are a reliable; party
we make you the following offer:
Wc enclose in this letter three
small sealed envelopes, w hich entitles
the person having them to whatever
article the certificate names. By
sending the amount named in the
certificate, which is two dollars for
each article, besides the postage and
package, we will send the articles by
return mail to you. After you have
received them, you will be kind
enough to show them around among
your friends and neighbors, and say
you obtained them from us for two
dollars each. You can then sell our
certificates and keep 30 per cent, on
all orders amounting to one dollar and
upwards for your trouble, and can
thus make three dollars to five dol
lars a day easy, as the most of our
Dg'.-nts are now doing.
Persons residing in remote sections
of the country can send for goods
with perfect safety. Every order is
fiiled by us on the same day as re
ceived. We know that prompt res
turns are always desired, and we are
determined that in no case shall an
order be delayed.
Hoping to hear from you soon.

It is probable that these gentlemen
have, at least, seventy. -five thousand
other persons in whom they place
great confidence, and npon whom
they wish to confer like favors. . Of
this seventy -five thousand favored in

as there arc, and ever will be, per

right that such operations should be
shown up in their true light. Not
only so, but there ought to be a gen

penalties attached. And then it

country has for export will, for this
season, probably be distributed over
many months, instead of being thrown
on our market early in the winter.
France has secured all the early de
li vcriei of this country. There is no
very definite information as to the
quantity grown in the countries hav

The wheat crop is reported to be in
good condition; and as the supply
from those districts is pretty steady,
we may expect average shipments
less, however, by what may be re
quired for France. Belgium has a
bad crop, and will require to import.
Spain has a very small crop, and has
already made importations from
Marseilles. Crossing to Africa, we
find that an almost total failure is re
ported from Algeria, demanding ur
gent measures of assistance from
France; but Egypt appears to be a
land of plenty again, and will no
doubt send us a fair supply. And
lastly, as the Times tells us, we have
" America within reach to supply us,
from a harvest of incredible fertility,
and to send us shiploads of grain in
exchange for productions of our
own." The Iatests accounts, how
ever, from that country do not quite
confirm the brilliant prospects which
the American newswapers, as is their
wont, have described. Even at this
time last year they promised us some
help from the east coast of the United
States, while the fact has turned out
to be that the eastern States not only
reqvired to import direct from Cali
fornia, but rdso had to buy from us
large quantities of California wheat
after its arrival at Liverpool. The
failures in the American crops are
never heard of until the next year,
at harvest time they are always good.
Still we believe that America has a
good crop this yeur; but as there was
no stock of old grain left, and as the
North will shortly have to supply
the South; we do not estimate that
America will be able to spare more
than the average of her exports to Eu

it is rather vain-glorious in its pre.

question of rascality, Chicago is as

sixteen to eighteen cents a pound, are
among the most common evidences
of the skill of Chicago operators.

into the city, taking them by the
