Tho following is a summary of tho condition of tho winter wheat, just issued from tho Agri cultural Department: On tho first wook of April; a considerable por tion of tho northern bolt of tbo winter wheat area was covered with snow. Tho condition of that visible gave promiso of general exemption from winter injury, leaving the crop subject to tho meteorological vicissitudes of April. In tho Middle States, a groat improvement upon tho allowing of last spring is everywhere conceded, especially in Now Jersey and Pennsylvania. *lho prospects in tho States south of Maryland is loss favorable than last »3roar, and there aro indications of a diminishing (.area la tho cotton States, although tho acroago ;tis not intended to bo given in this report. Miolu ..gan, tho only State of tho northern border In • which winter wheat is mainly grown, presents a /green and vigorous growth, wherever snow has : disappeared to rovoal it, and Ohio makes for 'moro favorable returns than last year. In Ken tucky, a more checkered showing is made, giv ing tho present appearance a decidedly unfavor able case, with indications of future improvo ■inout us tho weather becomes settled. In Indiana and Illinois, tho un ,favorablo returns outnumbered tho roso ..tcolorod. Tho dry autumn retarded seeding oand germination, and left tho plants too weak land shallow rooted to onduro well tho olfootß of the winter’s changes of temperature. Similar causes affect tho condition of whoat in Missouri, “but a groat improvement over last year is re ported, and a still moro favorable condition ex ists in Kansas. In Wisconsin, Minnesota, lowa, and Nebraska, as is known, very liitlo winter wheats produced, but full reports arotyvon of Hiioli experiments. Tho indications from Cali fornia all point to another year of great abund ance, scarcely a county reporting an unfavorable .condition. As a whole, tlio wheat prospect at itho close of tho winter is moro favorable than at ’tho samo date in 1872. FOn VIENNA. J. 11.

Murdorß- Me* ..id Robbery of Americans by |ans— ■Barbarous Amuse •j ments of Cochise. Great Decrease in Population, Wealth, and Business. • Washington, April 24.—Tho Treasury Depart ment has information of tbo following state of affairs on tho Texan border : On or*lnbout tho 2StU of March ,an American rnnehoro, living near Fort Quit man, was brutally murdered by the Mexicans, bis body thrown into tho Rio Grande, and his animals, horses and mules, driven into Mexico by bis murderers. Immediate pursuit waa started by'a party of citizens, and tho Mexicans wore overtaken. A fight ensued, in which tho pursuing party was defeated and cotumod to Quitman without having accomplished tho re covery of the animals or tho arrest of tho mur derers. In Arizona and Now Mexico, Cochise, nominal ly nt poaco with tho United States, continues to practice his favorite pastime, and occasionally roasts. a whito man, moroly as a matter of amusement. In Mexico, matters are in a state Of confusion quite beyond tbo compass of an ordinary mind. Tboro are wars and rumors of wars in Sonora and Sinaloa. In Chihuahua, several business bouses have boon closed by tbo General Govern ment, and tbo property confiscated and appro priated by tbo Stato, ou account of duties alleg ed to bo duo on tbo introduction of merchandise, and which duties oro levied in compliance with authority granted by iho late President Juarez. Tbo author of this official communication to tbo Secretary of tbo Treasury says: Where all this will finally ond is a question of importnuco and interest. Its immediate re sults are hoing dallydoreonotratod by the gradual decrease of business affairs of all descriptions. The disregard shown to tho laws and legal au thorities, tho frequent violation of tho extradi tion treaty on tho part of Mexico, coupled with tho refusal or inability—probably tho latter—to onforco Lor own laws and control hor own peo ple, has crippled American interests to an in credible degree.
