The Irish Labor League, j
LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING
Of LABORING MEN AT THE KINK —
SHALL AMERICAN INDUSTRY HI
PROTECTED AGAINST ENGLISH PAU
PER LABOR—WHAT Till. LEAGUE
WILL DEMAND OF BOTH PARTIES.
A meeting was held at Central Kink on
Saturday evening in'the interest of protec
tion to American industries and manufac
tures, and for the purpose of consolidating,
co far as lhe wrtuence of one evening's
sneaking could extend the sentiment of
American tradesmen against tho doctrines
free trade. The meeting was called under
the auspices of-the Irish Labor League,
and naturally the great bulk of the at
tendance of over two thousand persons was
of Irish laborers, and those mostly from
the furnaces and forges of the city and its
Considerable interest in the subject was
manifested by all those present, and it was
I evident desire of a large number to lis
carefully to the arguments presented
the speakers and weigh them befor
;ing their merits, as was evinced by th
fuland undemonstrative attention give
hat class, while the majority were cv
tly thorough "protectionists," and re
garded the meeting more as a jubilee in
honor of their sentiments, and attended i
prepared to endorse the propositions o
the speakers in toto. It was noticed
too, that some of the large man
ufaclurers and capitalists were ii
the audience, and that they observed the
arguments of the speakers with ob/iou
satisfaction and approval. The men em
ployed at the Lake Shore shops met a
their place of business and came down ii
a body. Half a dozen transparencies, ex
praising appropriate sentiments, were pro
vided for them. The following mottoes
"Shall ourtMechanical Work be. Done in Thi
Country(- in Europe?"
"Shall the Working; Men of America be
Forced to Compile With the 111-Paid Labor v
'Shali Two Millions of American Worltin
Men be Thrown out of Employment, that \
may Support an Aristocracy in England ?"
"Shall We have Home Industries, Plenty of
Employment and Good Wage*, or Idle Factorie*
ttiiil Mills, Little or no Employment and 111-Paid
"Protection to American Industry, or Brtti-li
'"Burn Everything that Comes from England
l.ttt her Goal I"
The meeting was called to order by
Thomas Lavan, on whose nomination Tim
othy Foy was elected chairman. A stir
ring introductory speech was made by
Major Boland, who announced the object of
csts involved in the vital question of protec
tion to American industry, a proposition
which, he said, was assuming a great im
portance in the politics of the day, and the
only question, which was dividing the two
political parties of the nation. People were
prepared to accept the inevitable result- of
the war, its inexorable logic, without un
necessary murmur, but this great question
agitated in the conflict of sentiments now
affected all tradesmen, at their homes, in
their school-houses anil in all their relations
of life. The question for them to consider
was whether American industry should
Hourish in America, whether the manufac
lures which came info use on American soil
iuld be made within her own borders or
'he proposition advanced by free trade
ocates, that inter-commercial relations
Suropc were natural, he did not believe
dd hold. This continent embraced all
natural resources that enter into the
uisites of an advanced civilization, and
ibined all that were destined to con
fute to the elevation of the condition of
humanity. The people are the sovereign
power. They make and unmake govern
ments by virtue of their sovereignty. They
hold in their control the authority which
withholds or allows free trade. The
speaker believed that protection was
necessary to the education of the rising
generation, and that free trade would
be ruinous to it. He declared that
all thoso who preached tho principles
of the latter in this country, were
the hired instruments of England, Hol
land, .or Belgium, the first of which
nations recognized in America a dangerous
rir*l in the struggle for the supremacy in
manufacture, and consequently saw her
own cause advanced by the influence of
free-trade orators in this country. Ameri
ca, he said, with propei protection to her
industries, could send her manufactures to
all nations. She fell back upon her own
resources during civil war, illustrating that
men and nations, who have supplies or
means of supply upon which they can de
pend in times ol* emergency, always realize
.'.lie greatest"success. Commercial pursuits
an_ manufacturing capacity were the only
reliable resources of a nation, as has been
shown in the fates of ancient nations great
in philosophy, literature, and learning, and
yet undecipfined in manufacturing pursuits.
He declared that the members of the
League proposed as Irishmen to be free
people in America, tp exercise their rights
of freedom in American politics, to make
this country the seller instead of the de-
Ident purchaser and to teach all nations |
supremacy in manufacturing advanta- ]
and ability. In his concluding remarks
said that we would always welcome !
l to our shores, but that manufactures I
Id not be landed without being taxed, j
remarks, although brief, were very
nest, and were received with enthusiasm
the crowd. He took advantage of tho
national characteristic of his countrymen,
and his references to Ireland and his con
trast of her former and present conditions
his relations of tales of oppression and
misery borne by lier people were aptly re
sorted to and well appreciated by the pre
dominating Irish element.
When to Cut Corn.
4 Jorreapondcnee of tho Rural New Yorker.
At what time shall we cut corn, and in
what manner V Shall we cut at the ground,
ton, or not cut at all ? These are questions
which are seldom discussed in our agricul->
tural papers; still, they should be thorough
ly understood by all growers. lam aware
that many eastern growers practice topping;
aud if this is the best method, we»should all
practice it. Contending that it is not, I
will present a few thoughts in favor of cut
ting at tho ground. l_aves are the lungs
of plants, and none can be removed while
the crop is maturing, more particularly
while ripening, without decreasing the
amount of such crop. At the time that the
topping is usually done, the leaves removed
are the ones most essential to growth, and
you prevent tho corn trom receiving the
nutriment that it would have derived from
them had they not been severed from the
In cutting corn you have the preservation
of the fodder in view for feeding purposes.
To be of much valuo it must be cut previ
ous to the frost—cul at the proper time and
well saved, they make excellent food; but
cut after they become dry and hard, or
frost-bitten, they are nearly worthless. I
believe it is an accepted fact that wheat cut
as soon as the kernel becomes hard, and
while the straw i.s still green, properly
shocked, improves in the shock, will make
a better quality of flour and more of it
than if allowed to stand until the straw is
if allowed to stand until the stock has be
come dry ; for, if cut at such a time, the
circulation of sap continues till the stalk
has become dry, and the corn ripens and
improves in the shock, whereas in topping
you entirely remove that portion of the
stock most needed in the ripening process.
There is a certain time at which corn can
bo cut, when the shrinkage in the cord will i
bear no comparison to the loss of fodder if
allowed to stand longer; at just what stage
this i.s, each must judge for himself. >lv
rule is when the corn i.s all well glazed, and
rather more than half the ears begin to turn |
yellow, cut and put up in small shocks, and
as soon as the corn is sufficiently cured to
crib, husk, binding the fodder securely, and j
Itting nine shocks of corn in one bunch.

The fearful effects on the mind are much to be
dreaded. Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas,
Depression of Spirit*, Evil Forebodings, Aversion
to Society, Self-distrust, Love of Solitude, Timid

Thousands of pel-sons of all ages can now judge

who have injured themselves by a certain prac

learned from evil companions or at school, the
effects of which are Sightly fell, even when
asleep, and, if hot cured, renders marriage Im
possible, and destroys both mind and body—
should apply immediately.
What a pity that a young man, the hupe ef his
country, the pride of his parents, should be
snatched from till prospects and enjoyments of
life by the consequence of deviating from the
I path of nature aud indulging in a certain secret
' habit. Such persons, must, before coutempla
reflect that a sound mind and body are lhe most
necessary requisites to promote connubial hapi
ness; indeed, without these, the journey through
life becomes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect
hourly darkens to the view, the mind becomes
shadowed with despair and idled with the mel
ancholy reflection that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with your own.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of
pleasure finds he has Imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease. 11. too often happens Hint an ill
umed sense of shame or dread, of discovery de
ter* him from applying to those, who, from odn
cation nnd rosporlahtllljycan alone befriend him.
He falls into the hands of ignorant and designing
pretendors, who, incapable of curing, lilch his
js-cuniary substance, keep him trilling month
after mouth, or as long as the smallest fee can lie
obtained, and with despair leave him with ruined
health to sigh over his galling dj«app_h,tnient, or
by the use of that deadly polio- Mercury, hasten
the constitutional symptons of Hie terrible dis
