Tho Daily New*, of Greenville, is
outspoken in fivvor of a straight
Democratic ticket for 1N7(?. The
ASurs wants no compromise with
Republican.", and says if there beany
of the latter who desire to go in for
Reform, they can unite with the
Democrats. The Newt supports
Chamberlain now but evidently would
"go for himp if ho should run in 1870.

Tho trial of Capt. F. W. Dawsou of
the N?ir? ami Courier, indicted for
libel, coma to n close on Tuesday hist.
Tho case occupied seven days, and
was watched throughout the State
with a great deal of interest. Solicitor
Ruttz and D. T. Cobin, Esq., were
Attorneys for Bowen, and Gen. Conner,
W. D. Porter, Brnwlcy and Smith,
represented the defendant. On Tues
day the jury was discharged, they hav
ing failed to agree. Eleven of thejury
were for acquital, and one for guilty.
Thus tho case ended ami we do not
b ipposc it will be heard of again except
through the newspapers. Captain
Dawflou seems to be jubilant over the
result, and is right in for the press

The Charades and Tableaux given
Thursday night and last night in the

been received at military headquar

Wo attacked at daylight yesterday |
morning, on the north fork of Sapper
creek, t party of sixty Chcycunes,
which I believe to be sonic of those j
who have been at the agency. We
cut off twenty-seven from their ponies
and demanded their surrender. My
demand was answered by a volley.
After a desperate resistance, they wore
all killed. "Nineteen warriors, includ

were among the dead. I captured one
hundred and twenty-live ponies. The
remainder of the Indians escaped
with a portion of their stock. I burn

Intense excitement prevails along the
Words of i'au tion to I'ntnuisof Husbandry
Several Patrons, seeing paragraphs
in the papers hinting at mismanage
ment and frauds in the National
Grange, general dissatisfaction, seces
sion of Oranges, ami impending dis
organization, have anxiously inquired,
?'What arc the facts in the case? Is
the order already demoralized, and
about to be broken tip ?"
We have hot been disposed to give
the reports alludvd to a moment's
thought, If our correspondents will
trace them hick to their source, they
will find that those who originated
them, and seem so deeply concerned in
regard to the condition anil prospects
of the Order, are not members of it, or
friendly to it. Is it likely that they
know more of ita a Hairs than we, who
are inside of the gates ?
In regard to the National Grange,
we prcMimo it has committed errors,
ll has done things which we are tumble
to approve; but wc arc /ill liable to g >
wrong even with the best intentions,
nor can we all think alike in regard to
what is the wisest and best course; hut
that there hits he it any intentional
subversion of the principles of the
order for selfish, pcisoual ends, or any
fraudulent use of its funds', hj tho
National Grange, we have- no proof;
nor do we believe a word ol it. When
tho proceedings of the last session shall
he published, a detailed statement of
money received aud expended will be
within the reach of every Patron.
Eiicli can then judge for himself.
Among the ignorant and suspicious
? and the greater the ignorance th
more intense the suspicion) tlicro is I
always dissatisfaction. That thcro is
more ignorance, moro suspicion, or
more dissatisfaction in our Order than
in an) other society, or in tho outside
public, we do not believe. "What little
dissatisfaction thcro is, our enemies
rejoice to see, and arc native in foment
ing. Shall we play into their l ands?
"But tho order is breaking up.'1
Yes, one Subordinate Grange in Iowa
has seceded and declared its independ
ence of the State Grange. So far as we
can learn, this is all. This Grange was
under discipline, at the time, for
"irregularities." Let our outside
"friends" console themselves with this
Patrons, if the National Grange be
corrupt, and a fiaud and "humbug''
whose fault is it, and in whose hands
rests the remedy ? Do you not elect
your Master in tho Subordinate
Grange by a free vole?by universal
sufiinge (ii eluding the ladies)? If he
is not a good man and a truce&ttron,
whose fault is it? Do not tho Mas
tors of the Subordinate Granges and
their wives, who arc Matrons, consti
tuto the State Granges? Do not they
elect their Master? If the Masters
of tho State Granges are not good and
true men and Patrons, again," whose
fault is it? These Master (with their
wives, who have taken the degree of
Pomona) constitute the National
Grange To impeach that body__ is to
impeach the State Granges, and to im
peach the St ate Grange is to impeach
the Subordinate Granges and the Pat
rons of Husbandry as a body. Do
you not see, then, that if this great
t ce, which has grown so rapidly nnd
overspread the land, is producing cor
rupt fruit, the corruption lies at the
very roots?in the Subordinate Gran
ges?in ourselves ?
Brothers and sisters, if you aro mind
ful of our "secret work," you will re
member a certain "sign." When you
see a member of the order listening to
such outside slandersns we have allu

A Mother's Care.
She will not allow her girls to ride,
because fox hunters sometimes get
their necks broken. They nwjy not
have f% pet dots in eoso itb?fow|l go
inud,.nor any aconite or 0" on kalt cod in
their gardens for fear they should poi
son themselves. Timid mother for
bids her daughters to visit among the
poor, for fear they might take small
pox, and will not allow one of them to
go alone outside of the avenue gate
from fear of gnrroters. The descrip
tion which she gives of the neighboring
fields is appalling. She represents
them to be the lairs of mad hulls,
savage tramps, venomous snakes and
wild horses. Her girls cannot propose
either work or play which site does not
prove to be compassed with dangers
horrible and hitherto unthought of.
In their childish days they were not
allowed a rocking horse for fear it
should ovoi balance; nor n swing, in
case the rope might break; nor n
pocket-knife, lest they should cut their
fingers. She is always tying comfor
ters around her children's throat and
applying tlanncl to mysterious places
where it will not stay. She revels in
chest protectors, respirators, and her
room is adorned with sticking plasters
and gallipots. She is always intent on
proving that every one either has a
cold or is taking one, and she maybe
se.n at night in a llnnnel dressing
gown going from room to room with a
gruel, pills, mustard leaves and India
rubber hot bolt lev. She i* constantly
discovering obscure sigrs of pome
deadly disease in her children. She
takes it for granted thai, her daughters
have weak spines, so their beds are
destitute of pillows, and there is a
reclining board in every room. When
she takes her girls to a pic-uic she will
not allow them to sit on the gras.-*, nor
in the sun, nor under a tree, nor on a
rock. They must return with her be
fore the dew begins to rise, and are
never allowed to look at the moon ex

Look in your neighbor's cotton field
