Is Wisconsin they are said to have
sent out as campaign documents litho-
grathicpor traits of the renominated State

Commerce suggests that for the Demo

In a letter written from Cowley coun
ty, a correspondent of the Leavenworth
Timet has the following in reference to
poor farms :
"This western country must, of neces
sity, be burthened with poor farms, and
miserable farmers as long as so many of
mem continue to spend so mucn of tneir
time in towns, and so much of their lim
ited means for whisky. Will they ever
learn that 'time is money,' and that
whisky is poison ?

Of late years great attention has
been paid to sanitary matters in New
Orleans, and there has been a correspon
ding decrease in the number of -deaths
during the hot season. This year only
four deaths have as yet resulted from
yellow lever. Uicanlincss ana a proper
observance of the laws of health may yet

From all parts of the State comes the
report that farmers are shipping in sheep
with the intention of giving the wool
growing business a trial. It would be
well for them to petition the Legislature
for a law protecting the sheep from dogs.
A tax of one dollar per bead leavied on
dogs would raise a fund in every county
large eneough to pay for all sheep killed
by them, and we believe that our Legis
lature would pass such a law if our farm
ers would get up a petition to that effect.
Vice-President Wilson, in answer
to a letter from a member of the Massa
chusetts Republican State Committee,
gives good advice to the party in Massa
chusetts and in other States. He says
for many months the position and pros
pects of the party have been a cause of
solicitude. It was founded to redress
human wrongs and advance human rights
and if its luster has been dimmed it is
because it has somewhat departed from
these grand principles which called it
into being. As an evidence that there
is true vitality in the party, he mentions
that "unfaithful officials have been dis
missed, and the public voice imperatively
demands that all such shall be ; and there
is increasing evidence that the party in
whose ranks is found so much of the
worth and character of the country looks
with regret as it was expressed by a
British Statesman upon every hour
that passes over recognized and unrecog
nized abuses." In attempting to recon
cile divisions and heartily unite the
party he is opposed to any "lowering of
tko standard in regard to principles,
measures or men." He advises Republi
cans to adopt the motto, '-Forgive, forget,
unite ;" and to earnestly invite those to
return who are in sympathy with the fun
damental principles of the party, but
who, for some cause, have failed to give
it their support. The advice of the
Vice-President is candid, plain and prac
tical, and is worthy the consideration,
not only of the Republicans of Massachu
setts, but of Republicans everywhere.

gument in their f.tvor. It is shown that
of the thousands of boys and girls who
become subjects for reformary institu

is from neglect, and not vicious incli

destroyed, the telegraph wires all broken

"The capital in railroads is live, mak

through which they pass rich. The mon
ey iuvested in fences is dead, unproduc
tive, cumbering the ground and filling
up the tax rolls, and not returning a sin
gle cent of profit. Take Sedgwick coun
ty for instance : We have twenty-eight
townships, or 1,003 sections of land.
Fence this area up into forty acre fields,
on an average, with a rod around each
section, and it would take ten miles of
fence to each section, or 3,200 rods, or3,
22o,G00 rods of fence for the county.
This at twelve cents a foot for post and
board fence would cost $G,3S6,688,
enough to grid-iron the county with rail
pads. The taxes at two per cent., over
and above the cost for repairs, would not
be less than $127,732 per annum.

In Brooklyn caste prejudices has tri
umphed in the exclusion of a colored boy
from a public school. To sustain his decis
ion in the case Judge Gilbert revives the
old idea that the State gives education
as a charity and has a right to prescribe
the terms" upon which give it, and to
exclude any class of tax payers it sees
fit from any of the public schools. This
doctrine is anti-Democratic and anti
Republican, and would lead to the sanc
tion of the abuses that result from a un
ion of Church and State.
Fast mail trains from the Eastern to

by means of which the latter get the pa

Postmaster General Jewell has tendered
the thanks of the Department to the

trains are run. He says: "The accura

now transferring our mails, are, I think,
unequaled anywhere in the world, and I
believe marks an epoch in our progress."
What a change there has been
among Democrats in reference to
greenbacks. In Indiana, where they
are now demanding an unlimited issue
of the legal tenders," Dan. Voorhics was
in the habit, when addressing Democrat
ic mass meetings just after the first issue
of thes3 notes, of taking a ten dollar
green back and holding it up before his
audience with the query, Is that money?
He was must emphatic in his declarations
that it was not, and he would then de
clare that in five years the man who
would offer one of these bills to pay for
a meals victuals would be considered
greener than.the greenbacks. (Applaus).
And now these men some of whom we
fear have no more regard for the good of
our country than they had then want
greenbacks issued until the "demands of
trade" shall cry enough.

The St Louis Republican thinks that
from the unwise resurrection of the mon
ey question in Ohio the Democratic par
ty is threatened with a ruinous schism;
and in speaking of the late convention in
New York says:
The emphatic, resolute declaration of
the Dcmqcrats of the most powerful State
in the Union in favor of specie resump
tion has a meaning and will have an effect
greater even than was imagined before
the declaration was made. Coming as it
does, in the crisis of the strangle in Ohio
and rieht on the heels of the contrary
resolution adopted by the Democrats ot
Pennsylvania, it would wear an appear
ance of audacity but for the calm argu
mentative tone in which it is made. The
New York platform not only demands "a
8 peed y return to specie payment," but
compacts ino a few sentences unanswera
ble reasons for it, and fortifies the whole
by quoting the resolution of the last
Democratic national convention in favor
of the same demand thus showing that
