Husbandry---Rearing of Stock.
MESSRS. EITORS :-I promised in my last
to give my views on the all-important sub
ject of Husbandry. That Iabor-on our farms
and the rearing of live stock should be re
garded by many of our young men as a
degrading avocation is one of the new
fangied notions of the present corrupt age,
there remains not a doubt. It is obvious
to every unbiassed, observant and intelli
gent mind, that this false corruption has
been engendered in igr.orance, false pride
and indolence. Did the patriarchs and kings
and people of olden times consider Iius
bandry degrading to them? The wealth
of our father Abraham, of Lot, of Isaac,
Jacob and pious Job consiste,l in their
flocks and herds of cattle, and we are told
in Holy Writ that they delighted in attend
ing them personally ; and that their fields
and vineyards teemed with corn and fruits
and cultivated with their own hands and
those of their laborers. In a later age was
not Cincinnatus taken from his plough and
carried into the Roman Senate, because of
his superior wisdom and integrity, to enact
laws for the Roman Empire, and afterwards
declared Dictator of the most powerful
government then on earth ? Did Cincinnatus
or his subjects regard plowing a degrada
tion ? They most assuredly considered that
avocation, then, the most honorable of all
the pursuits in life, and was so regarded
ever since, until quite a late period in the
history of our own country, alone; and
slavery was the obvious cause of so foolish
a notion. In the past century, did Patrick
Henry, the most eloquent orator of his age,
and Governor of Virginia, regard plowing
as degrading? Wnen we are told that while
following the plow, he prepared himself for
the profession of the law, and was after
wards called as a delegate to the conven
tion that formed the Constitution of the
United States? Benjamin Franklin, the
American Philosopher, was no plowman,
but he was brought up a soap-boiler and a
tallow chandler, not half so honorable as a
plowman ; but he was not ashamed, but
proud to write about his poverty afterward.
Neither was Chief Justice Marshall ashamed
to attend to his own marketing nor to carry
a turkey from the market at Richmond for
a dandy and simpleton, who was too proud
to carry it, but not to eat it. Who was
King David but a shepherd boy before he
was called of God to reign over Israel-a
man after God's own heart, the ancestor of
I have digressed from Husbandry, bht as
all manual labor is now regarded asede
grading by some, I has given these proofs
to convince such that it is not. There is
no avocation so ennobling to the mind of
man as that of Hlusbandry. He is not forced
to condescend to low tricks, intrigues or
devices to sustain life, false pride, or posi
tion, as many have to resort to. The far
mer, if he will, can be more independent
of the world than any other man, if he rear
his own live stoch. It is a noticeable fact,
and all history records it, that the wisest,
the greatest and most useful men of tnis or
any other age, were those who labored
either as husbandmen or in some other
avecation requiring manual labor, at sorne
time in life. It is a l-nown fact that the cul
t:vators cf the soil are the main pillars onf
which rest the prosperity and wealth of all
the States, Empires, Kingdoms and Rtepub
h'es of the world. Listen to Virgil, an

We think the election of a New

ing one of the Counties in which
Radicalism has had full sway, by
reason of the large majority of ne

nity to stand forth in the coracils
of the State and claim her rights.
She has stood in a dark shado~w
since 1868. In the last State elec
tion, though she fell 500 votes
short of a Cor 'ty majority, her
gain was 1,200 over 'he elecHon of
1874-a larger ga.in to 'Ae Demo

given by any other County. A
great part of this work was accom

popularity of the man whose name
we offer to the Legislature as Judge.
That body is not so forgetf ~ as
not to remember his great ser.'ces

hoe to see him elevated to the

thoroughly qualified, and a position
that, by his enrnent ser. 'ces to the

Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Oct. 24, 1877.
Congress has had smooth sailing so far.
In its first week the House was simply or
ganized, and was the-eafter, as it still is,
engaged in discussing the rights of indi
vidual members to seats. So far the Demo
cratic majority has been e::tremely liberal
in its treatment of the minority. The case
under discussion now 's that of Belford and
Patterson, from Colorado. Belford will
probably be sworn in, not so much on ac
count of any right he has to the seat, as
because of the Democratic liberality before
mentioned. By apparent connivance be
tween the Speaker and Republicans this
Colorado case was considered yesterday
(Monday), to the e::clusion of the regular
busiaess of that day-the presentation of
bills, petitions, etc. The object of this was
to exclude a resolution, to be presented by
Democrats, endorsing the Southern and
civil service policies of the Adminis'ration.
This was intended as a trap for the Rep,b
licans who naturally dreaded it, and R a
dall ehher took pity on them or believed
the resolution would be ;as damaging to his
own party as to the other. Meanwhile, the
Republicans are consulting each other,
members of the Cabinet, and even Mr.
Hayes himself, to find out some way in
which harmony may be made to appear to
exist in the party. The contribution of the
latter gentle.nan to the accomplishment of
so desirable a result is a concession to
members in the matter of appointnents.
It is semi-officially stated that hereafter the
advice of Senators and Representatives will
be heeded unless they have shown them
selves unsafe advisers in such matter.. It
is also ezplained that the c'vil service order
is not intended to prevent the interference
of office-holders afLer nomnina, ions are made.
These concessions arc forced from Mr.
Hayes in various ways. The Senate refuses
to act on his no-ninations, or even to refer
them to Comnittees. Thus is taken out of
reform as promised by Mr. Hayes any heart
it ever had. It wiil be well for the country
when another party-not controlled by the
offce.holders who have fat.tened on the
country for half a generation-shall come
In the Senate, Mr. Edmiunds yesterday
securedi the passage of h's resoluLion for
the nppointment of a comxmittee of seven
Senaors, to act with eleven Representatives,
whose duty it shall be to consider the laws
overning the counting and declaration of
votes for President and Vice-President.
Mr. Davis, of West Virginia, it has been
agreed, shrll have his special committee to
investigate the Treasury Department.
In the Senate, also, imnerous bills have
been presented authorizing the coinage of
Siver Dollars, to be legal teader to any
amount in payment of debts, public or pri
vate, where their payment in gold is not by
law or contract made binding. -Senator
Jones peesen ted one of these and expresses
confidence in its passage. As chairman of
the Silver Co.:mxission, Senator Jones pre
pared an exceedingly elabo:-ate report on
the proprie:: and c:, ediency of ren jn
etizing that metal. This report was pre
seted to Congress in March last; but is now
published as revised during the time since
Gene-'al Sherman yesterday returned from
his extended Westera trip, in good health.
He thinhsthere will not be any further Indian
outbreaks of i.nportance at present, and
favors generous treatment of Chief Joseph,
who, he says, conducted his warfare accord
ing to civilized ideas. How would it do to
retie one of our Brigadier-Generals, and
gve the place to Joseph ? There would be
no difficulty in mahing the selection.
The second laugh of the session-the first
being against Mr. Hale, as noted in my last
leg.er-was at the expense of Mr. Garfield,
late of the Eight to Seven Commission.
The proposition having been made'in the
Senate to -raise a. committee of seven to
consider the meLhod of counting and de
laring the Presidential vote, a resolution
to appoint a commIttee of eleven to act
with them was presented in the House. Mr.
Garfield suggested a reduction in the num
ber, but Harris, of Virginia, settled .the
uestion by,saying the Democrats insisted
on "Eleven to Seven this time."~

Some man (some people would say, t
some distinguished man), we can't
;ay whether he was distinguished or
2ot, is reported in the anecdotes told ]
)f him, to have said, that the highest I
degree of animal happiness he ever i
witnessed was that of a large ox lying <
down beside a stream of running wa
ter, under the shade of a mighty oak,
with tall grass growing all round,
both within his reach whenever his
appetite required it, without the ne
cessity of putting himself to any ex
tra trouble. The Poet Gray thought
the greatest degree of earthly happi
ness was to be found, during the warm:
days of summer, by going out in the
forest, lying down in the whispering
shade and revelling in the pages of
some exciting romance. Every one
has his conception of the juste milien
of earthly enjoyment ; some enjoy the
billiard table, some the card table,
some the sparkling wine, some the
pleasures of the dinner table, some
the hilarity of gay society, some the
ball-room, some the theatre, some the
sweet and melting strains of music,
some one thing and some another.
They are all pleasant enough, if they
tend to satisfy the yearnings of hu
manity and bring content.
"A perpetual feast of nectared sweets,
Where no crude surfeit reigns."
We belong to a class of conserva
tists who are perfectly willing to al
low to every one else-financially, so
cially, politically and religiously, the
right to his own opinions and his own
conceptions of happiness.
Happiness is happiness, be it what
it may. Now our conception of one
species of happiness, where one has
arrived at maturity, is to be so situ
ated that one can sit and observe and
watch the movements and actions of a
group of merry children as they dis
port themselves on some pleasant day
unconscious of the eyes of an observer.
A few days ago (it was on one of
these days when the trees are fu' of
crimson buds, the air of humming in
sects and the woods full of birds;
when the sun shines brightly and the
gentle zephyrs sigh sweetly as they
sweep along), 'twas on such a day as
this; we were seated at our casement
window, with our feet reposing on
the window-sill, with a book in our
hand, overlooking the green swardy
yard of our neighbor across the way,
which is adorned by several respecta
ble trees that aford a delightful
On this green swardy carpet was to
be seen a bevy of little restless chil
dren. Yes, little children. How is
it ? They want no rest; they laugh
at resting, except when nature com
pels them. Like a flock of birds, for
a moment they are still, then they
start off in new evolutions as incalcu
lable as the caprices of a kaleiodo
scope, and their restlessness and mo
tions, from the mixed variety of beau
ty and innocence, becomes at least
pleasant to survey. Our attention
was soon attracted from our book by
the shouts, the songs and the bursts
of merriment that issued from their
childish lips. There were dark eyed
boys and blue eyed~girls; some were
engaged in dancing tbe rope, some in
chasing one another,. some in playing
ball, and some we~noticed were seated
around an earthen bowl, with little
chalk pipes in their hands, which
ever and anon they dipped into the
bowl, then placed the stem to their
mouths and blew out from the bowl
of the pipe prismatic globes, "soap
sud bubbles," that would rise like so
many balloons and then suddenly van
ish away. Some we observed would
burst at the very mouth of the bowl,
some would scarcely get a foot before
they would explode, some again1
would airily float for some distance,
some again would rise and rise and
float high up in the air before they
vanished away. Each little gladsome
fellow appeared to be deeply interested
in blowing "a bubble" that would
rise and float beyond that of others.
A failure was always accompanied by
a drisive laugh, and a success by a
We are by no means envious or pu
ritanical. We love to see the young

Gather the rose-buds of life, for old<
time is swiftly flying, and comingi
days will probably overcome you with
their cares and sorrows.
As we sat and gazed on this merry,j
heerful little group of children, we
gradually became unconscious of the]
scene before us, and the happy shoutsr
and joyous laughter died away on our
ears, and our mind went wandering
back to early days of mirth andin

The system of Pomona Granges,

vast advantage, and will, it is confi

ment becoming tired. of dull monotony,
and feeling, ine- the absence of any
amusement, that life had become "as
tedious as a tice told tale to the dull
ear of a drowsy man" determined to
seek refuge in a Hop. So after "in
vestigating" the matter they decided
on Tuesday evening, the 23d, as the
most proper time and on the Town
Hall as the most desirable locus in
quo. The invitations being then ex
tended they waited ;with~bated breath
the arrival of the appointed time.
At 81o'clock the tide of couples
began to flow in, which: continued for
half an hour when the Darkey Band
struck up one' of its liveliest airs and
the said couples moved off in exquis
ite time to the thrilling strains.
Upon observing it was noticed that
seventeen young ladies were present,
two of whom, however, h.ad respect
ively taken a "worser" half,
All seemed to have their cup of joy
full to overflowing, there being not a
single objectionable element to mar
the pleasure of the refined company.
Till the "iron tongue of time told
twelve" they revelled in the pleasures
of dance and of converse sweet when
the party homeward wended its way
with better hearts and blither spirits.
Such intermingling with the "fair
ones" of which 'Newberry may well be
proud is couducive
"Not on'v to keep dowui the base in man,
But teach high thought, and amiable words
And courness, and the desire of fame,
And love of truth, andall that makes aman."
We cherish the hope that the party
will go and do likewise soon.
The Russian Court invited Dr. Ayer
and his family to the Archduke's wed
ding in the Royal Palace. This dis
tinction was a .?arded to him not only
because he was an American, but also
because 'his name~as a''physioian had
become favorably known in Russia on
its passage round the world.

ECONOMY IS WEALTH,
Poor Richard sayis. If this be true, then it
is wise in every family to use Duryeas's Sadro
Gloss Starch in preference~ to any other, be
cause it is the most economical ever man
factored in the world. It is the most econom
'al because it is the best; it is the cheapest
because -it is the best. It is purer, whiter,

be decei red by your grocer. Ask for Duryeaa'

take no other.

A BEAUTIFUL WOMA.N.
In a neighboring village there Iives a
young lady1rho, two years ago, was an ob
jet of pity to all wbo knews her. 'From a
little imprudence at an improper tiine, she a
became irregdir, and was the victim '.of 'c
'suppression iu gll 4ta bprrors. iSuch were a
the ravages of the disease, she was miserable i
and unfit ror'social bnjoyment. After trying E
many recmedies, and paying much money to
physeians, a friend sent heps couple of bot-a
tIes of Regulator. She improved after taking t
the first, and before taking the second she b
bame -sound and 'weli. Now,-two years z
after taking the firat bottle, she is fully re
stored to her former health, and is a moat i
beautiful woman. Proper respect for the
famiry' prevents our giving the name.
