The Radical Defeat in Connecticut.
The Chicago Tribune, in mourning oyer
the Radical defeat hi Oaanecticut, gives
its readers g.impses of a great truin.
After a bitter fllri at the faction in the
Borate which delayed the admission of
Texas and Georgia,nd so lost Governor
Jewell the negro vote'which he might have
had, the Tribune proceeds to remark very
sensibly and philosophically, that it is a
matter of much mora interest to know
"what has become of bur white Voters,
and that "after putting together the Fund
ing bill, the nroiect foe keeninc Georgia
out of the Union, and the Domingo sell,
it is not difficult to account for the defe
k tion of enough votes in Connecticut to
turn the scale." In other words, the Trib
une Pays the blame of the disaster upon
three of the most prominent features in
the recent policy of the Administration

nal zealously supports. The Funding
bill, althoueh ostensibly the invention of
Senator Shnrman. is known to have origi
nated with Secretary Boutwell, audit is to
be presumed has the sanction oi a majori
ty of the Cabinet as well as the Presi
dent. "Keeping Georgia- out of the
Union" has the support of a large
proportion of Radical. Senators, in

The way appropriations are managed
in Washington is worthy of remembrance.
An estimate is made of tbe amount that
will bo necessary to run a certain depart
ment. As it is desired to make a great
show of economy and retrenchment, the
sum is usually put at a figure muck below
what will be actually 'expended. This is
the intention, so that when the appropria
tion bills are presented, they' will show a
smaller sum than in the previous year was
expended, if possible. Sometimes it is.
difficult to do this, and , yet have money
enough to supply the speculators on the
treasury. This was the point to which
Mr. Dawes called attention, and showed
that the proposed bills called for a sum
greater by nearly f 5fJ,0OO,00O, than was
expended by Johnson's administration.
The appropriation bills made abed show
ing, and preparations and schemes are
now going on to cut them down so they
will show better. TheTe is little doubt
that this will be dene, and then we shall
hear again how economical the Radicals
But there is another kind of bills a
kind of supplement, or addenda to the ap
propriation bills. These are the bills by
which the sums needed above those pro
vided for in tbe appropriation bills are
obtained, and are ' called the deficiency
bills, because they make up the deficien
cies left by the desire to make an econom
ical showing in the appropriation bills.
Congress has lately been engaged in ma
nipulating the deficiency bills. In the
present instance the deficiency hill counts
The bill now before jthe House origi

FARM AND HOUSEHOLD
It is a question upon which all do not
agree, whether it is best to wash wool or
put it into maraet unwashed. W e Dene ve
in the West and Northwest the predomi
nating opinion is in favor of washing.
The strongest argument in support of
this conclusion is the cost of transporting
the additional weight to market for
whether the farmer ships his clip to a
commission house, or sells it at home, the
coat of freight is counted against him.
The best remedy for this will be found in
encouraging the manufacturers to erect
their factories in wool o-rowin or localities.
Then freights upon both wool and cloth
will be saved. Another help to the con
clusion to wash wool has been found in
the arbitrary rule or practice of the ma
jority of buyers. They will pay more for
washed wool, even though it nas run long
enough alter washing to Decome nearly
as heavy as before. With those who feel
it is their interest to wasn, tne question
is, how can we do it best, all things con
Where the necessary facilities can be
had, we recommend swimming, as saving
much labor to both men and sheep, and
doing the work quicker and better than
by any other method. A running stream
should be selected, and a point found
where the bottom and banks are not
muddy. Sheep should be put across as
many as three times, with an interval of
about half an hour of sunshine between
crossings. If in clean water and deep
eneugh to keep clear, sheep can be washed
no more thoroughly in any of the modes
common among dock masters. We have
known three men to wash a thousand
sheep in this manner in two hours after
getting to the water and do it well, too.
Very Bttle preparatory work is necessary,
as most well-trained flocks can be put
across a stream without trouble, at almost
any point Western Rural.
Work Over the Manure.
One of the most important things to be
attended to, in the month of April and in
early May, is the preparation of the ma
nure that has been made in the winter for
the coming plantig season.
Many farmers have improved the win
ter days in hauling it out and placing it
in large heaps on or near the field where
it is to be used.- These heaps should be
dug over, perhaps three timet, of so
many as will perfectly fit the manure to
impart all th,e fluids and gases to the roots
of the planti when needed, withont loss.
If it has been allowed to overheat in the
heap, or if there is lack of complete in
