The Stock market again display?- gicat activity and
btK'vancy in the WsSfeSSB ?hare?, bnt wa? ?oriK-whiit
tame for our local ?tccke with the exception of Read?
ing, which wa? one of tbe most active of any on the
list, advancing to 47 at the First Board and to 49 in
tie- afternoon, finally closing after the adjorirnment at
?18. This wa? the most important nivanc? of the day;
bnt for Michigan Central, Galena. Illinois Cen'.ial and
Sock Ieland. there was a ?trong and well-rustained
?iemand, with rajtid advance and great excitement.
Tbe constant re?rte from the West of a grea* bne-i
fic-?<j to follow the movement of one of the largest
cereal rrt-ps eyer harveeted, have a ?trong intlaenee
opon the market, and a* price? go up on the share-list
tbe circle of ?peculation l?tiem? to enlarge. The tc-l
egrapliic line? are (jnite actively employt-d with bro?
kers' dispatches, and the commission houses are doin<
a large butin?es. The movement? for several week?
bave been surprising to the veteran ojirator? of the
Btreet, who have been ?cuBtomed to see a reaction
aft?r any material advance; but it is evident that
tbe improvement now going on i? based upon the
-rabetaiitial revival and progress of the Western
country, and the ?peculaiion is therefore of no
ordinary tharaeter. The market ie doubtless rising
too rapidly to ?uit the view? of conserva'ive men,
and must have an occaeional cheek ; but if the West ie
to build up rapidly this Autumn, the iailway? must
-?bare in it* property. The Bond market is very
strong, and the transactions are larger from day to
?lay, and generally at advancing prices. At the IBM nd
Board the market was romewliat irregular, ami some
?f the Western share?, which advanced rapidly in the
morning, were from i to i f$M tarnt lower. Erie,
lU-ad?ig, Rock Islaiid, and Sonthern Gnarant-t.-d were
better. There i? a lively demand for La Crosee LAml
Graut bonds, and even the stock seems tobe undergoing
? tialvaiiiziDg pro-??*. The improvement ttB? BtT-Bbl
canse d by the report that a new BSjBBB? fot rc?orga*ii_

The Bank statement i? as favorable a? ould be an?
ticipated in tbe ?{.ecio bue. The aggregate shows a
d?cruae? of only a million and a balf within the pant
t'-rec months, notwithstanding the larpe f ?reign drain
during that period. Tbe loans ?bow a further expan?
sion, which, however, i? mostly on call. The line
will no doubt be still further increased, until the ?Mb?
uiente of specie afect the reserve Hnfficientlv to alarm
bank manager?, and force a contraction.

Hon. BaBACI Gitr.Ki.i-T??S/r. It i? some time
BBBM we liave had any correspondence. Hot yen have
adrjtt-ered a letter to m? through the columns of your

and I have concluded, not without relue- trine?, to write
this repiy To pas? over your inipu?ati'iu? with tin
silent (JiiK'aiu which their rudeness deHerve?. would
prol ably embolden yon to a?-ert that I admit their
truth and justice.
Before proceeding to vindicate m)?elf frcm your re

e n your own SBBBBfetSf and c. BBTB t as a pablie journal?

and propose to inform the public mind on moral aud
political question?, jou offer your.-ell B? a popular
teacl t-r and guide. Thi? i? a itBponsi hie office, and
imp?as, if tut a compliance with the rules of logii, at
least BOBM regard for th?- law? of decorum and the dig
ni.y of truth. But, unfortunately, you have shown
yoiirn-11, aflat?, utterly incapable of fairnes? and ?an

feelirg or affect party interest?.

neither are they willing ?bat divisions among N-ttiona)

onion and Secefaion. In aorne of the Northern States, i
they may also cnite to resist the march of ?ect ionaJ
?gitatiom I warn yon of ?he fact, that yoa may pre- t
invetomeet it. If it is laudable for yon to cohabit ,
with the rankest portion of the Democr-vy, for sec- 1
tional purposes, why may not other men eodperate for |
once wiih tbe sounder part, for the safety and bar- ?
mony of the country 1
You tow pris*ud iba?. Mr. Hell i? ?a objectionable a? |
Mr. Br? ckjnrii'ge. How is it pem-iihle that vo'i ctn say '
tbi? I Wh*?, did yon mean by the felicito j-s alliteration, j
in your w.t.eiy-circulat>d journal, of "Bill, Bates, '
or Bolts," ut proper candidate???repeated, if I mistake !
no*, in your celebrated speech at Osawstomie, ia the i
very heart of Kansas I More than once within a '
twelvemonth you bave placed the name of Mr. Bell
among ttoee whom you would be willing to accept, as
? compromise candidate to unite the Opposition. Yon )
know ne voted againet tbe repeal of the Missouri Cora
protniae, under a heavy tire of denunciaron ftom hia I
own ?section, and that he never favored any aggression* j
on the right? of the North. If it were a choice be?
tween him and any one of hi? compeiitora, I believe he
would be preferred by a large majority of ihe tieople. '
On the subject ol coalitions, I have a word to say
fc-r jonr special consideration. Did you not mMmt the
Republican? of Illinois to help retHect Mr. Douglas to
ibe Setate iu preference to Mr. hitcoln ?
Did you not advocate coalitions with his friends in
tbi? State. Pennaylvaniaand elaewhere? And in doing
tliia did you ''??II tbe IvVpublicaua to tbe enemy?
When you dissolved the Wing party, you coalesced
with that wing of the Democratic party which was most
widely separated from n? "ii all practic-d measures of
government; and what ia the Republican party now
but a txioet incongruous coalition? When you ask old
Whig? to support Mr. Lincoln, you also invite them to
accept Mr. Hannibal 11 am I in. Do you forget that he
voted to annex Tex??, to repeal tne Tariff of 1842;
that he denounced it as " the black tariff," " the British
ay-teni," and " the bill of abominations,'' and that he
actively opposed all bill? for the improvement of Har
ljor? and River??
But yon contend that it is neceseary to keep up a
Northern party, because the South is ?till bent on
spreading Slavery over the remaining Territories. I
wholly differ with you on the question of fact. Will
you ?ay, on vonr veracity, that you believe there ia
any danger that Slavery will lie permanently estab?
lished in New-Mexico or Utah ? Hundred? of the
moet reliable men in the Sontb ru sure me that there
il no su. b intention in that part of the country. The
? laim of right by Southern uhraiata is a mere abstrac?
tion, and only three Senate rs could be fonnd to vote
for Congveeaional action in support of it.
You speak of your correspondents iu the Southern
Stater. I am authorized to offer you a reward of one
thousand dollar? if any of them will find a Southern
planter who intend? to migrate with bis slaves to either
of thoae Terri or it a. If I am right in these view?,
your issue, for ?tl! practical purposes, is dead and gone.
Mr. Seward dtclared the war lo be over two year?
ago, and be never made a truer observation. Hut you
promptly disiented, and said in aubstince th it the con?
flict, is uot to l>e ended ?o long as Slavery ha? a foot?
hold on the American continent. Now let me ask you
if any guaranty, any earthly settlement of the Terri?
torial question, would induce yon to abandon your
eystem of Slavery agitation ?
Would you not continue to hold up one large portion
of your country to the obloquy of tiie civilized world,
to i nil. ule its weakness, to denounce it? law?, to repre?
sent it ua a dead body fastened to a li ving organism, aad
to re-aa'ert that this Union is worth le?* than one dollar
per bead to ibe people of the North?
Yon complain that the circulation of The TBIBUII
is utercepttd in the Slave States. It is not for me to
defend any agcreiaions on yonr rights by Southern
post-master?. Perhaps it is not strange, wnile remem?
bering your expressed opinions a? to John Brown and
tbe Helper book, that tue white people in a sUvehold
ing community sbould regard the circulation of The
Tribune among them, with rensation? such a? you
would feel on witnessing a lively discharge of blazing
rocket?, terpeuta and torpedoes into the moat combusti?
ble part of your establishmant.
You have been pleased to refer to some harsh person?
alities, of which 1 was the object, at different period?
of my public life. Probably I have suffered my full
share of this kind of injustice. But it never disturbs
my repose. I have obs?'rved that no man, who.-* aims
are right, is harmed bv the hoarse railings ot a licen?
tious preas. Those who indulge in this mode of war?
fare sutler the whole penalty, and sooner or later be?
come asharied of themselves. Ia it becoming that you
simulo imitate a bad example, now that I am a private
citizen, m? king no advancement, and claiininu nothing
but the right of a freeman to hold |and express my
honest opinions on political subjects ? I make no per?
forai aaeaulta on those who diil.-r from me in opinion.
It is their undoubted right to think and act for them
-elves; but I utterly deny their right to censure
me for adhering to my own convictions of public duty.
Nor bave I ever forgotten any of the claims of gruti
tnde arising from personal favors and associations in
the year? when many, now separated, were bound to?
gether in patriotic efforts I have cherished many agree?
able recollections, even under a deep sense of wrong.
Perhaps you will think this letter transcends the
strict limits of self-defense. Hut it is my answer to
y oars, and I persuade myself that you will give it the
same publicity in the columns of Tin Trihi'ne, if not
from a sense of justice, as a decent tribute to the cause
of truth and free discu-sioii.
With due respect, I remain, youn, i.e..

AGRICULTURAL SCHOOLS.
A Convention of the friend? of practical, especially
agricultural, education waa held last week at Bloom
ington, Illinois, with a view to tbe establishment of
an Agricultural Seminary in that State. To this Con?
vention, Mr. C. T. Chaee of Chicago m.?de a report of
bis travels and personal observation? among the em?
bryo schools of our country, which we find reported in
The Chicago Tribu tie, as follow?:
I tirai visited Cincinnati with a view of visiting the
Fanners' Ci liege in that vicinity, but on learning from
several iiiitlligent gentlemen ?f tbe city thai it was
strictly a literary inttitution, and made Bn? little pre
tensions even to teaching those, branches which have a
decided bearing on agrie til tu re, I did not visit it, but
proceeded to Washington and had a very satisfactory
interview with Prof. James Henrv anc] Prof. Boin,
St. rotary and Assistant Set r-tary of the Smithsonian
Inatitution. These gentlemen manifested mm h inter?
est in the movement in this State, furnished me with
what infortxatiun they were in posseasion of, and ten
dered tbe coop? ration of the Institution.
The State of Maryland has an Agricultural College
at Hladensbtirgh, aa-ven miles out of Washington.
Tbi? institution went into operation nine montliB ago,
nuder tb?; direction of a Board of Trustee?. They
1 ave a Professor of Mathematics, of Chemistry, of the
Ancient and Modern l?anguagea, and an hntomologiet
who is purtuiug b'B investigations th. re and preparing
a text-book on The subject. Tbi? gentleman lecture?
before the a? bool at stated honre each week. There
are about ?ixty pupil? iu attendance, from twelve
years of age upward. The College was eatablisbed bv
act of the Maryland Ixegis'attire, Muii'h b, 1S6*5
f2b OIK) waa rail ed by private subscription, and tbe
State made a paTiiianent appropriation of ?j?>,tX?0 annu?
ally for ibe endowment, of the institution. A farm of
4M acres of land wa? purchased, and a build-ng erect?
ed of ISO feet by .'el leet, ?> ?tones high, at an expense
of about $-5,000. Tbe accommodations are considered
anfficicnt for about l!2U boarders. There are a lartn
bouae and out-buildings on the place, oecnpied by the
lttgister of the Hoard of Trustees, who is the buainess
mat agir. An annual endowment of |.',000 per year
for three v?arB haa also tieen made by a wealthy gen?
tleman. Ti.e institution is laboring under some pecu?
niary i uibairaseu.eiit, and difficulties of a Bcri< us and
unfortunate nature have arisen liotween the Trustees
and the Faculty resj -cting the detail of its manage?
ment, which have soiuewbat impaired its efficiency.
Tbe pupils are all required to work aeveral hours ?
day. It waa eviceut that tbe work they did was not
generally agreeable to the pupils, and thai it cost all it
came to. The course of study ia not yet wel delinee),
but It will be a?-n from the ages of ?onie of the pupila

Mil.i-.t-is of public regard. TW practical working of
thess schools is exceedingly interestingatid their result?

Twenty-two fat?iio-fl of swamp land? were appropri?
ated for the purpose. By sa act of the L?t"g-?.*feBre,
February. 1 "->.?. provieion was made for the ?ale of th*
lands and the establishment of an Agrictilior?l College

two years, and last year a farther appropriation of
Mint f 10 000 more was given. The act of o-gini-.?

ten miles of I/.n?n,g.
A firm of ?'?" ?>_ acres of lands was porehased f_bout
:ij mile? from a*tBB_fta* This tract w is covered with
a ti. us?- forest of heavy first-growth timber?a few
acresonly betag cleared. I-main g i? mtuated 50 mile*
from the Michigan Central Kai i road.
Two buildings 100 by 50 feet, thre? stori?-? high,
were erected, one for the college, and t?h* other for a
1" ?n dii.tr.house. The Profese.irs lived at Lansing,
three and a half mile* distant. Tho ac-'/mm.tdarion?
were ?nfficient for .r*0 pupil?, yet the applicants for ad
i.i!"i'Ti at the opening of the third t?rm were '?f00. Th?
??tucent? were required to labor each day. They wer?
allowed a dime an hour for their servi*-??*. lu In* re
port. April, 1850, the Presiden? says: " We now have
" evidence to expect that the student? will perform
44 daring the same period of time, oe-arly a? mac? <-g-i
" cult mal labor as the average of fall grown lal>or*rs
44 through?!':!, the country?though, perhaps, tint is
*' ? certain ing a very sanguine expe?-*ation.'' Pair
residences for the Professors and various oatb**iIdina-B
bave been erected, and stock imported and par. Ira*???.
A four year?' bterary coarse of in??m?*tion wa?
adopted. Among the higher ?tudies pnrgaei, som* at?
tention was devoted to surveying, leveling, ?V.C, Ex?
perimental, itg-ricnlfiiral. and analytical .hem'stxy.
Although the accommoiiations were sufficient lor 1c?-*
than 60 popils, 1-0 were receive?!.
The Summer of 1858 wa* exceedingly anpropiti?<rM
for this institution, lire farm was new and stnmpy.
They liad undertaken to raise ?considerable ?mount of
{*rain, but the weather was unpropitiou* early and
ate.
During the Summer 100 acres of heavy timber-land
were clear?>d and logged, ?tamp* extracted, tile laid
through quicksand?, in all which labor the student?
participated. They also had charge of the stock, the
bunding??, and waited on the table?. In a-hhlion to
this, it was attempted to ?Htablii-h a grand uuivertrity in
which the entire general range of human knowledge
wa? to he taught.
It is scarcely m-.-?-?eary to remark that wider all this,
the Michigan Agricultural College was in desp water,
and had touched Dott<>m.
A thorough organization has since taken place?oily
one of the original protestor? being retain.*?!, and strong
hope? of ultimate success are now entertain-id.
A large number of the student* and th* Prestent
were compelled to leave the institution in conaeqaenca
of sickness, and many who remained were invalid?.
At one time but about thirty wer? In the li.-M. The
d?coijj-agement wa? almost equally ?ever? for ?veveral
week?, and extended with more or leas severity over
a period of three months.
IOWA AGRIcrLT-i-RAI- CO?.LEOB.
A bill piist-ed th? Legislature of th* State of Iowa
in 1858, authorizing the ee*_bli?hment of an Agr,e?x_
tural College. A large prairie farm ha? been pur?
chased, and a Board of Trustees appointed. Their hav*
chosen from their number a Secretary, who tfevote?
his time to the intereets of agriculture in the State, at?
tend? the fair? in hi? own State aud in other State?,
procur?e valuable seeds, recommend? implements,
stock, t?. c. for introduction. The building? are not yet
erected. It i? believed that the State will not oha?ge
i'a policy in this regard, but on the return of prosper?
ity the plan will he put into execution.
"In other State? the initiatory step? have boon tnk-n
for a similar object, to which the report make? refer?
ence *? mew hat. in detail.
It yet remain? to speak of the conree of agricultural
lecture? at Yale Coll-ige, in the month of February
hist. It? object was a no vel one ; it* re*ult* a rare suc?
c?s?. I ti'-ed not detain yon with the hiirtory of t ...
It is familiar to us all. But very few pei-eo*?? outside
of the State attended, and yet it paid. Tbe effect was
moet happy upon that region of country. Bringing to?
gether so many *nen of nigh analitica'jon? from differ?
ent section? of the Union, and hearing their addresee?,
the i ?-.ill's of observation, experience, and study, a*
well as the private conferences in u social way, were
highly gratifying to tho proje-ctor? of th? plan. We
feei here in this remote region tbe effet r.? -feiuiilatiug
us onward in hopes of better thing?; and her? ]?t m*
ask, if ?ucees-fu! in it, why would not ?ucb a ? varre be
?in < csful in Illinois ?
Mr. ( licsiiy, known to be deeply interested in agri?
cultural education, and to have devoted himself tor
years to that department of science intimately related
to agriculture and tbe art?, was called upon by m. .lion
for information, who trtated briefly but with gr***.
clearness the importance and magnitude of the enter?
prise under discussion, the place it should occupy in
the hearts of the people, the ne?x?ssity of wise ant, ju?
dicious, measures for the acA-omplisLnieui of ends in
view, and hi? be-lief in the certain ?neceas of the pro?
ject il thus wisely managed.
Be then stated unit an enterprise was about inangn
rated in the City of Chicago, tor an Agricultarai Col?
lege, in connection -with the l'uiversity of Chicago,
whit h he wished to mention that the Convenu >n might
know what had already been done; and to prevent
misapprehension as to his own motive?, he won d a'so
state that he liad the otter of a position in that Univer?
sity which he would probably accept, and that while
the Profeesorahip tendered him was in another part of
the institution, he would be expect?*! to take some
humble part in the management of th? Agricultural
Department. The institution ha? a commodious boild
it g completed, six professorships already filled, a libe?
ral endowment, and will so*n stArt an experimental
farm at a convenient distance from th? city. Land?
have lieen offered by the liberality of ciritens in two
or three direction? from the city, and will be accepted
at tone one of the point* on the line of some railroad.
Good ?oil? it several varietiea can lie tecured sa a
form of Ml acres, at any one of the point* tinder con
ruli-ration. '1 he farm will be pnt ander the ii_uiage
inc-nt of the lieet agriculttiral tutors of the country.
PrtifeBBorshi* s appropriate to an agricultural college of
the very h'.glr rt order, and studeut* r?-.? r. -?i next
l'ail.
He made these ?tat?mente without any wish to have
them control the actions of the Convention, and ex
pr?s?-?'? a hearty willingnee? to coop?rai* to th? utm.at
of his ability with any oiher in-tituti in of the kind
that might be < ?tobl'ishi .1.
