THE PATRQNSJJF HUSBANDRY.
Editois IIaktixjiii) IIi:kam:
"When, in the course of human events,
largo lwrtlons of former political par
lie?, of their own volition, emancipate
themselves from the political dictation
nnd party rule of their loriner' associ
ates, a decent regard for past affiliation.
tvould seem to render necessary the
assignment of some reason as to why
Tiiich steps have Ikcu taken.
The issues upon which parties di
vided, as they now exist, began with
the Compromise measure of 1850. The
abolitionists, it is true, ran a candidate
against Polk and Clay, but the slavery
question was a side issue with the peo
ple at large. The increasing promi'
nence of this issue, resulted in the
death of the Whig, and the birth of
the Republican party, soon after the
time alluded to above, and since that
time Slavery became and has been the
vital issue. After years of war, this
issue was settled by the adoption of
the Constitutional amendments. Since
the adoption of those amendments, the
issues before the country, of a political
nature, have been insignificant. The
Republican party has confined itself to
the task of rendering certain these is
sues the Democratic party to a policy
of general opposition. From its very
nature, the question of sdavery could
only have been settled by a mighty
convulsion. The convulsion came, the
question was settled, but refused to
die and be buried. An incident of
the war was wild speculation, and still
wilder and more incredible legisla'
tion in aid of the speculation. In mat
ters ot business atlairs, chaos came
again, and Capital, seeing the confu
sion, grabbed the industries of the
country. Credit Mobilliers, Salary
Grabs, and Sanborn Contracts became
the order of the day. The people,
busy in the herculean task of cutting
each other's throats, became silent
spectators at the birth of that hydra-
headed monster, Monopoly.
"When satisfied that enough throats
had been cut, and the people were
about to awake from their apathy
Capital saw the danger to come from
that awakening, and backed with the
sinews of war which Mercury stole
from Jupiter, Money, it threw itself
again into the breach. The Politicians
were hired to let slip the ballot-box of
war for bayonets were no longer
of use and to arouse sectional hatred
over a question which had been settled,
was practically dead, and ought to
have been buried. The endeavors of
the Politicians were crowned with sue
cess, the people got each other by the
cars, and while in this, to them, costly
attitude, patents were cxtcndcd.chartcrs
granted, royalties magnified, and sub
fcidies voted. The blood cooled, the
people awoke in reality, to find unjust
laws, rascally appropriations, burden
some taxation, and a vast municipal
tebt. As time wore on, it became only
too evident, owing to the extremely
low purchase-price of our political leg
islators, that no relief was to be had
from cither of the present organized
political parties. The Patrons of
Husbandry, forsaking their former af
filiations, have assumed the task of
improving this slate of affairs.
Could the unwise aide bcUutn legisla
tion have been corrected within the
pale of either of the present parties?
. Manifestly not. "Both parties had been
organized for other purposes, fulfilled
their respective destinies, and in de
cency ought to be buried. If reform
were possible with the present party
machinery politicians are stumbling-
blocks in the way of success. In the
face of these exigencies, what remained,
but to do as was done, organize the
Patrons of Husbandry? Iu complct
big this organization there is no claim
laid to a political regeneration; there
is no claim made to a life in the future
with, utter oblivion of the past. The
Patrons do say that, from now and
henceforth, the issues of the last ten
years, if they tvUl live, shall be second'
tmj issue: that tliey will no longer
cut each others throats, that they will
not stand and idly look on while Capi
tal absorbs the-life-blood of tlu: Nation.
"What arc the objections to the order
of the Patrons of Husbandry? The
first one heard is,
IT IS POLITICAL,
Ii is asserted by its opponent?,, that.
hi violatitm-of its national constitution,
acandidatc for a political office has
beciii placed in nomination. The most
pertinent inquiry at this point is,
"Who is to .-;it iu judgment and do
tcrminc when the constitution i viola
ted?" The Patrons accord that right
to its members, and to no other body
of men. What right has Republican-
sm and Democracy to pass sentence
upon an Order which yields no obeJi
once to eithef of those organizations?
Oentlemen politicians, when your
opinion is wanted upon questions of
constitutional construction, we will
ive you due and timely notice. How
ever, if it will be the means of making
you more readily accept your advan
cing ixtlitical doom, it may be ex
plained that, in the sense in which you
undir-tand it, the Patrons of Huiband
ry is not a political organization. In
the sense in which Patrons understand
it, the political issues, which we say
ire dead, but which you won't let be
buried, arc not and shall not be the
subject of argument in the subordinate
Grange. If we discuss an unjust and
odious law which has been the fruit of
your party rule, then we say we will
talk about it until that law is repealed
If we find money squandered, monopo
lies unjustly chartered, exorbitant
salaries, exorbitant fees, impudent
and corrupt officials, then we say ice
will talk of these subjects; yes, and do
more than that we will nominate and
elect men pledged to the reform of
these abuses. If, while doing'this, j'ou
politicians shall be pleased to say: 'Oh!
you Grangers are meddling with poli
tics!" then we say, put it m your polit
ical pipes and see if it will smoke.
The truth is, gentlemen, that all
that troubles you is, that wc absolute
ly refuse to have anything to do with
the matters and things which you call
politics. e are brothers in one
faith, no longer neglecting our home
interests to quarrel with each other
over subjects which you politicians
would keep uppermost.
The second objection to le heard is
that expressed in the words
For years our ears have been dinned
with broken promises that hereafter
legislation should be for the Farmer;
for, said the average political rascal
legislation for the farmer is legislation
for us all. Wc believe this, and also
believe that when the foundation of
house is strengthened the entire cd
ifice is made safe and improved; but
when the farmer proposes to make his
own repairs, and do his own improve
ments, without the aid of the doctor to
humbug him, the lawyer to out-talk
him, or the mechanic to get his pay
and not do the work, you cry out.
The truth is, all the legislation of
the past decade has been class legisla'
tion, and it has included every class im
aginablc, save and except the farming
class. To avoid all future "class legis
lation," wc have become Patrons, and
from this time on there shall be no
class legislation. The next objection
urged is that the order is
Well, none but farmers are eligible
to memlwrship. If the politicians are
to be lelieved, every farmer is an lion
est man. So then at least the order
will be controlled by honest men
Who finds fault with that? Well, you
won't admit Lawyers and Doctors?
AW there the shoe pinches, does it?
What a glorious oider the Grangers
would be, if the Lawyers and Doctors
could only get control of it! Selfi
preservation is the first law. Given a
particular legislative body, and the
bigest end Ls made up of Lawyers and
Doctors. WclI,most grave and reverend
seigniors, 'Ou have run the machine
for tenjyears, and we say to you frankly
we arc not satisfied with the way in
which vou have shown vour engineer
ing capacity. We will not presume to
go so far as to intimate that your rey
al highnesses have ever sold yourselves
out, but we will say this, that while
you have acted as pilots, the ship has
been run on rocks; while you hav
liad control, the outgo has exceeded
the income, though the latter has been
enormous, twso, wc "rumble, and
have concluded to pilot the "Ship of
State" under direction of the owners,
Wc will take you as passengers, free
of charge; but 3-011 shall have nothin
to do with running the boat more cs
pccially, you shall not be intrusted
with the key of the safe. Seriously
we like you as a lawyer anu wi-li you
to stick to your briefs. Weadmir
your skill as a physician, and ask you
both to stay at home, keep us well anil
out of trouble, and ice will make the
laws. If wc succeed, you are lwuiul
to prosper, for your bread and butter
comes from us. Wc always have done
well by you, and always intend to
Wc admheyour talents and energy
so don't ask us to send you away from
home, for we need you here, ut you
intimate that wc don't know what the
laws are, and so- will fail to make prop
er connections, "Tisplty, 'tis true
and pity 'tis, 'tis true." Now wc d
claim to know something about law
until the General Statutes were ailop
ted, but since that time well, gentle
men, it's a delicate subject, we wi
not press the matter.
How' about middle men? Now, con-
ss that there is one middle man too
many, won't you. It is the purpose of
the Patrons of Husbandry, in so far as
ley can accomplish the same by co
operation, by agitation, by just and im
partial laws, by disseminating intelli
gence, by moulding public opinion, to
mve as many professional men as arc
eeded, and not one more; to have as
many agents as can do the business,
ind not one more. Every surplus pro
fessional man, agent, mechanic, doc
tor and merchant ought to get to pro-
ucing something; and in the manner
indicated and by the means stated, as
nich as within us lies, we arc bound to
accomplish these ends. Wc war
against none, and have charity for all.
We shall malic labor respectable, so
that young men shall no longer desire
to rush headlong into professional life,
to become in maivy instances the fag-
ends rf an honorable order of men
We need more producers; wc need
schools; wc need organized effort; and
we need improved machinery. Bury
iiiur obsolete issues, wc address the
living present and look to the future
To these ends, wc have, as farmers,
banded together. Wc realize that ev
ery man has his place in life, and we
complain of no men or class of men
Wc will do better by other men, than
other men have done by us. We ac
knowledge talent and energy, whenev
cr displayed; and, in conclusion, say
with Fcstus: "lie lives most who
thinks most, acts the best, feels the

The American Chemist says that a
Western farmer discovered many years
ago that wood could be made to last
lontrer than iron in the ground. Time
and weather, he says, seem to have no
effect on it. The posts can be prepared
for less than two cents apiece. This is
the recipe: Take boiled linseed oil and
tir into it pulverized charcoal to the
consistency of paint, Put a coat of

TnE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA,
A JIAGNIFICANT CONCEPTION WON
DERFULLY CARRIED OUT.
The necessity of a popular medium for to
representation of the productions of our great
artists has always been recognised, and many
attempts have been made to meet the want
The successive failures which hare so Invariably
loliowed eacn attempt in this country to estab
lish an art journal, did not prove the indiffee
ence of the people of America to the claims of
high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of
the want and an ability to meet it were shows,
the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to
its support, and the result was a treat artlttla
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
xne Amine wane issued with all ol the regu
larity, has none of the temporary or iisatly in
terests characteristic of ordinary periodicals'.
It is an elegant miscellany of pure. lisht. and
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest collection of artistic skill, in black
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty ot The Aldiae will be most
appreciated after it is bound up at the close of
the year. While other publications may claim
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals tl
a similar class, The Aldino is a unique and
original conception alone and unaooroached
absolutely without competition in price or
cnaracier. me possessor ot a complete vou
ume cannot duplicate the quantity of .fine px-
er ana engravings in any otner shape or nam
er of volumes, for ten tima ill ml; and lit.
there if the ehromo, letidei!
The national feature of The Aid na must be
taken in no narrow sense. True art Is eosato-.
politan. While The Aldine is a strictly Ameri
ran institution, it does not confine itself to the
peproduction of native art. Its mission is la
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, ona
iiiaa win uiscrimmaio on grounas or lninnsia
merit. Thus, while pleading before the patrons
of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic th
productions of the most noted American artists,
attention will always be given to specimens
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the
pleasure and instruction obtainable from horn
or foreign sources.
The artistia illustration of Amenean leenerr.
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates are of asisa
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious Interspersion of landscape,
marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where tka seopa
of the work confines tho artist too elosely to a
single style of subject. The literature of Th
Aldine is a light and graceml accompaniment,
worthy of the artistic features, with only sueks
technical disquisitions as do not interfere wit
tne popular interest ot tne worx.
