party lrom tne ism waaiuioen ror in uob
Kress was a rerraeUoht of $100,000,000,
which, if in pMrer, they . would have
made, with a correspond id.? redaction of
the expenses of UM government, more
especially in the atanrllng army, now used
mainly in the Sout h as a brute force to
put down self-government in the 8tatea,
and to carry elections there. Whether
the income tax will expire in two years
or not depends, a stated by Mr. Wilson,
upon the caprice of the Republicans in
Congress. The tax imposed daring the
war was to conHnue two years, and no
longer; but it has been continued two
years longer, and it may be longer and
longer, if the Republicans deem it neces
sary to keep up the collectors and the
patronage of the ' offices necessary there
for. It is not tp be wondered at
that a Senator from Massachusetts
is content with the mode 'and man

This ULle tells th Whole tale of the
content of the Senator from Maasac.hu
setts and the malcontent of the Democracy
in tne southern states, because ot tne un
equal redaction made. I The table tells
too, how much that Massachusetts senti
ment means, which, while professing ex
clasive love for the negro, thus practical
ly leaves the hesvleut Federal taxation
upon twelve States where that negro
lives, while it trees its own sell toeretrom.
The ooath has not beea in the least re
lieved from the tariff, while increased
taxation has been imposed upon the iron

on hair cloth, on nicke and on the manu

just to the Western States as to the South

The table here given shows tbat in the
States of Iowa, WiaoQrtsiiLMiahigan, Min

Thus, we see Massachusetts, with only
ten representatives in Congress, is re

sentatives in Congress, are relieved hi

is in it that should pass current event in
"Buncombe," that famous county in
North Carolina, for which such addresses
are usually made. A family, consisting of
man. Wife, and four children, say six in
family, will consume 90 pounds of sugar,
6 pounds of coffee, and 1 found of tea
per head annually. These facts are statis
tically calculated, and may be verified by
every housekeeper. Now. then, suppos
ing the consumer does get the benefit of
the whole of these redactions that have
besm made (which is by no means pos
sible), fie savings on the above reductions
for aJainily of six in number would be as
fcflowav (after Jan. 1. 1871, for the re

Now, the above tamed family win ad
mit that it buys one pair of blankets
every two years o say one-barf pair a
year for which it pays $4 50 per pair ;
and surely they are not the best for that
price. These blankets, weighing tour
and one-half pounds a pa'r, if they could
be imported, cost in England one shilling
aug six pence fM3il,K,Ar' to onr
money, 'exactly $t 51"gtd. per pair.
Under a revenue tariff of 25 per cent.
y could be breweht to New York by
e cor sum er for 19 SO currency, which
ly proves that if such a tariff ware
le consumer would save f 1 70
,ir of blankets, and the above-
I v would save 85 cents on the
half pair of blankets it consumes yearly.
The aforesaid family cf six will not deny
that they use annually six spools of cotton
thread, on Which there is now a duty of
88 per cent. Mow, the best six corded
thread, which any housewife knows is the
cheapest, for strength and every purpose,
costs the housewife in some places 10 cents
per spool of 200 yards, and in the largest,
cities 8 cents per spool. At a duty of 25
per cent on spool thread, every house
wife could buy the above spool of thread
for 4J cents, currency, a spool. This
certainly proves tbat had such a
tariff been adopted, the above fam
ily, numbering six, would have saved
on the six spools, even if they only pay 8
cents a piece for them now, 3t cents per
spool, or 21 cents. We further must as
sume that a family of six. using 180 pounds
of sugar , 86 pounds of coffee, and 8 pounds
of tea annually, will certainly buy 12
yards of alpaca, Orleans cloth, or woolen
dress goods suppose we say common al
pace, for which it has to pay 50 cents a
yard, or $6 for a dress of 12 yards. How,
we have the custom house authority, the
merchants' authorities, and the authority
of experts, that a yard of alpaca selling
in New York for 50 cents, costs, in Eng
land, 9 pence sterling, or 18 cents, gold.
It now pays a duty of from 85 to 88 per
cent. Under a revenue of 26 per cent, it
could be bought by the consumer for 33 to
36 cent s sav .the latter. The above fam
ily would, therefore, save on the twelve
yaras oi alpaca, naa suet a taitxt been
adopted, 15 cents per yard, or $1 80. A

Foddejs fob Hoo A correspondent of
the Journmt of JLqrxovitvre Bays : 1 have
never seen any distinction made between
growing fodder for cows and hogs, and
one might suppose that there is none ;
but there is quite a difference. Any close
observer-will see that cows eat the blades
first and then the etalk. With hogs it is
lost the reverse: they look for nubbins
first, then the stalk, and last the blade (if
at all.) My experience is this : If I meant
to ieeu to cdwp, X wouiu sow aooui iony
grains to the foot ; if it was intended for
hogs I would sow about twenty to the
foot. Where it s sown about twenty to
the foot, every stalk will have a nubbin
on it, which is q arte an item. 1 sow in
drills four and a half to five feet apart,
and cover with a one-horse harrow, as it
comes up more even than if covered in
any other way.
What a Kitchen Should Be.
I would have a kitchen well lighted ;
some, yes, a great deal of the broad, ex
pansive sunlight coming in boldly, as if
it had a perfect right to be there. That
would, of course, necessitate large win
dows. And, then, I weald give as much
attention to the ventilation of a kitchen
as I would to a sleeping room. I would
have a large, circular device suspended
over the cooking stove, with a hole in the
center, and a tube leading to the top of
the house, to carry off the savory smells
which the process of cooking generates,
and prevent them from permeating the
Then, I would have a large sink, with
permanent soapstone or marble wash
bowl, for washing the dishes, and another
for draining, I would also have an ad
justable tank leading from the hot water
tank to either of these basins. Besides
thk, sundry cupboards and closets ar
ranged on the wall, so as to be tasteful and
decorative, as well as convenient.
Then a space devoted to tiny drawers,
such as one sees in a drag store, and
labeled in this manner : Soda, allspice,
nutmegs, cream of tartar, eta, so that at
single glance I could discover just what

things in some oat-of-the-way ' corner.
placed th -re by some untidy person. Cook
ing is becoming so complicated now-a-day s
that one needs all the arrangements, and
many utensils as a chemical laboratory.
Wn cannot urge to strongly the impor
tance of fall plowing of land, that to to be
planted or sown with grain next spring.
In hard, strong soils, there is little danger
of breaking it up too finely for grain, and
If hoed crops are to be put upon it next
spring, the after cultivation will be. very
much lessened by deep and thorough
plowing- this fall. We know of more
than one boy who fo.-med his first resolu
tion to leave the farm when of age, while
he was hoeing a rough, once-plowed field,
that might have been greatly improved
by being turned over the previous au
tumn and again in the spring. Newly
cleared land cannot be worked over too
of cen before it is occupied with a crop.
Working among stumps, stones, and roots
is not easy or agreeable labor, but it is far
better and cheaper to employ oxen or
horses in killing grass, weeds, and roots,
than to do it with a hoe, and especially
among growing corn or potatoes. Where
there are none of the incumbrances we
have named, and the land has been under
cultivation, then it should be plowed In
the fall for the purpose of killing weeds
and insects, and giving the air and frosts
of winter an opportunity of acting upon
the soil which is turned op from the bot
Hearth and Home.
The Art Making a Loaf of Cake.
Begin by getting in readiness all the
utensils and ingredients to be used. See
that the oven is at a proper temperature.
Rich cake requires a slow even oven;
plain cake a quicker heat. Never add
fuel while the cake is baking. Line the
tins to be used with battered paper. The
trait should be prepared, the flour sifted
and measured, sugar, butter and milk
apportioned out, the eggs laid in cold
water to make them beat light. Hever
mix sweet and sour milk.
Dissolve soda in a little water and
strain ; cream of tartar or baking powder
must be sifted in with the flour. Sift
spices through a fine hair sieve, and
strain the yo'ks of the eggs.
The order oi mixing the ingredients is
as follows :
Put into an earthen dish the required
amount of butter; stir with a wooden
spoon until soft ; then add the sugar, stir
ring until a fine cream is formed, next
add the yolks of the eggs, then a little of
tne nour, and very gradually the mtik,
stirring the batter all the time, then the
flavoring and spices, lastly the whites
beaten to a stiff troth alternately with the
remainder of the flour; now beat the
batter until the ingredients are thoroughly
incorporated ; this will insure light, fine
grained cake. The best way to put in the
fruit, after dredsins- them with the flour.
is in alternate layers with the sponge as
you put K in the pan.
Put the cake immediately in the oven
and watch carefully ; so much depends
upon the baking. Avoid a draft of cold
air while opening the oven. If the heat
or fire is too great cover the cake for
awhile with a piece of brown paper. Try
with a broom splinter; if it comes out
quite free from any particles of batter, the
cake is done. If desirable to remove tbe
cake at once from the pans, transfer it to
the top of a sieve until quite cold. I The
cake keeps much fresher, however, to re
main In .the pans. Cake must not be
frosted until quite cold. A stone jar and
a clean piece of linen will keep cake fresh
a long time.
Stale cake may be steamed and eaten
with hot sauce, which makes an excellent
