of the rille club leaders, and refers to
the recent commissioning of men as

By whom has he been informed ?
By men who came South to steal and
rob?aid of course by men who will
lie ! What right has the President
to "proclaim" about the militia of a
State? Not the least. It would be
nice for the South Carolinians to lay
down their little pocket pistols and
pocket sabres, and allow a set of tliicv
ing carpet-baggers to pounce down
upon them, and by the aid of ignor
ant f: ecdmcn, not only tob them, but
murder them. Better ask Grant why
he don't enforce, his proclamation to
the Indians to disband. Were it not
for the t hie vis, whom Grant, through
Belknap and others, havc~sent but
among them, there would be very lit
tle trouble out West. But the nimble,
and perambulating Yankee carpet
bagger must be sustained. Perhaps
they won't find the Southern Demo
crats more timid than the Indians of
the Western wilds, and they may yet
lose their scalps.
If it were not for their (the Demo
era is") threats and turbulence, there

L-3t tho Lesson be Read.
A few days since n man attempted
to assassinate the pretended Governor
of Louisiana, Packard, but was foiled
in the ell'ort. Upon it our ab'c
Georgia cntemporary, the Chroniejn
and Seutiac1, re ids that unrighteous
usurper tho following warning.
Should Cbambo lain be fois'od upon
the people of ibis Stale, the same, with
a few trifling modifications, would
be equally applicable to hi in. Here is
the Chronicle and Sentinel's clarion
warning to usurpers :
Whatever explanations may be
given of the recent occurrence in
New Orleans, whether Weldon is a
man or myth, whether he was dnihk
in- crazy, the fact remains that the
pcop'e of Louisiana are being made
mad by outrage and opprcssb n.aud
ihat in this" madness they may adopt
a summary mode of ridding them
selves ol their oppressors. It may be
that the. man who sought to free t c
world of the monster Packard is a
stranger and a madman?though his
act has not the color of lunacy But
if be is indeed insane, there is a ter
rible method in his mndne.-s. It is
the same madness that sent the blade
of Brutus to seek a scabbard in the
bosom of the Roman tyrant. It is
the sunn madness that nerved the
arm that drove the dagger of Char
lotte (.'onlay home to the heart of the
murderous Muruc. Such madness is
contagious, and il is a terrible thing
tor tyrants when the poplu thus be
come "iiiiirl." Wo censure lawless
ness, we condemn violence, we abhor
assassination; but. wo recognize the
fuel that liiere arc times, haply for
humanity not oft oecurrimr- wheti tho
law is impression, when violence, be
comes virtu.', when assassination as
sumes the shape of a judgment of that
highest 1' aii tribunals, the v otirt of
Public. Opinion. Under some cir
cumstances the assassin is only an
executioner. Let Packard take care
lest that time arrives in Louisiana.
We tdl him that if the General
Government shall foist him upon the
people of that Stute his life will not
be worth the purchase of an hour.
The people o i Louisiana have sub
mitted for four years. They have
twice reported to the ballot box; each
time they won a g'oriotis victory, ami
each lime they were cheated id'its
fruits, and cheated so bungling I y that
the whole world saw the swindle and
cried shame. They have appealed to
the President for justio , but in vain.
The President has been in league with
the scoundrels of whom they com
plained. They have sought redress
from Congress, but the dominant party
in that body, caring more for the suc
cess of a fiction then the happiness
of a people, has turned a deaf ear to
their appeals. They have been the
victims of continuous spoliation, in
sult and oppression. They have en
dured wrongs sufficient to have sent
n hundred nations to the field of bat
tle. Tho men who have cheated
them, who have robbed them, who
have outraged them, may well trem
ble if the General Government de
cides that they shall rule yet four
: years longer. They know that they
deserve to die the death. The death
of a hundred such carrion would not
expiate the ruin they have brought
upon a fair Stute and a high-spirited
people. If Puckatd is recogni/.cd as
the Executive of Louisiana tho people
of that unhappy State, goaded by
persecution to desperation, may de
termine that if they cannot have a
ruler of their own choosing they will
have uoi.e at all. When they thus
determine, woe to the sham Governor.

A Waterville girl worked the mot

Hog-Raising and Pork-Packing.
It'is worth a visit, nt this season of
the. yeqr, to one of the Northwestern '
pork-packing houses, to see them
kill the hogs and convert them into
'he killing is usually done in the
fiftli story of a building, and in a few
hours the meat is rolled out. from the
low.^r story as clear rib sides, dry
sa'hid, or smoked bacon. The hogs
are \driven up a winding inclined
plavjo-front the lot to the upper story,
where they arc forced or crowded, by
twijrities and thirties, into small pens
communicating with each other by
trap-or.sliding doors. As soon as the
pens are lull, a chap, with a rope in
his -.hand, steps up to an opening in
the jide of the pen, quickly thrusts a
cluc.m that is attached to the end of
the rope or chain around the hind leg
of rt' hog. In an instant the rope is
lightened by machinery, and the great
grunting porker is susp tided by his
hind Jog in the air. The pulley from
\\h:~h he bungs runs along on a track
to :ho end of the building, where in
an ^nsl'ant a butclicr-knito is forced
in tea his throat until it touches his
j hea. jj, ..and, before the first is dead, r.
seco'btF-comes rolling along; and thus
one after another thoy are hitched to
the claVnps, dragged from the pan,
and swung along through the air to
the man in oil suit who bleeds them
an aij - average of four to the minute
all day long.
After he finishes with them they
are shoved along suspended fr mi the
mi natu re railway until they come to
the ?1< ng scalding trough, into which
they are dropped, frequently before
life ; is . extinct, and, sooner than we
can tell it, they are s\tept through the
scolding water to the nnd of the
t..f.-?i;r-.iT.-!f?4?l! *!?sir hair
and bristles, are again suspende 1 by
a gaitibrell, and shoved upon another

them clean ami turn them over to th o
most dexterous butcher in the
The man wc saw ''gutting" these
hogs disembowel 12(1 ab .ut four tJ the
minute, ami said he "had cleaned of
their entrails as many as ' seven in
At soon as the hog is divested of its
hair the head is cut off at a single
stroke, almost as quickly the entrails
a'c taken out, ami the beheaded car
casses are then rolled along on the
track to the cooling room, o l)J hung
in solid column by the gain broil tor
perhaps twenty-four hours for the
meat to get thoroughly cold. The
little railroad tracks upon which the
suspended hogs are shoved along have
regular switches as they approached
the rooms, so lint j"st so many may
bo suspended on one tiack and so
many on another until the room is
When perfectly cold the carcasses
j are lowered to another story, whero
they arc cut up almost at a single
stroke, the lard ami sausage meat
taken out and the f et taken off. AI I
these various duties are performed by
a different sot of men and each hav
ing his speeiiic work to perform does
it in less timo than an inexperienced
hand would begin to do it, and it all
seemed to be done most dexterously.
At a single blow the hams arc etit
from the middlings of all the hogs.
The shoulders aro taken only from
the large ones, The shouldor blades
are taken from the shoulders of the
smaller hogs in a most ingenious
manner. With a very keen knife the
meat is cut loose from the boiic on one
bide, and then similarly treated on
the und or side, when a small cord is
attached t<> the bone and to a collar
around the man's neck, and with
both hands pressing on the shoulder
ho raises or draws hiinsch back and
the bone slips out from the shoulder.
This entire piece of meat is then sold
as middling meat and called "long
sides." Thus you seo the farmer who
buys "long sides" pays as much for
shoulders as he docs for middlings,
though he gets nothing but meat in
the shoulder, as the bouo has beeu ex
On a still lower fluor those pieces of
green meat are salted und lowered to
the packing room. When the visitor
reaches the lower story he sees in ihe
hogshead, box or cask,or in banvls
of lard, the veritable parts of the live
hog he had seen in the fifth story sus
pended by his hough.
This butchering and packing is car
ried on all the summer, the tempera
ture of the rooms being kept almost
to a freezing point by tons of ice that
are packed uway overhead and
around'the rooms on all sides. Por1*
packing is now so skilful.'y done that
the art has become a real science.
Where so m ny dirty rooters are
butchered so rapidly, so milch blood
spilled, and so much liquid was'e
bundled, one would suppose that
there was a greet dtgrec ot filth in thti
establishment. But not so. In the
bouse we visited, where scvcul thous
and i arc butchered daily, there is less
filth than would be around the bog
pen of a country fanner who bad just
butchered bis winter's supply of a half
dozen home raised pigs.
Single house in Chicago will aver
age ten thousand hogs in a day from
early fall till late in the spring, for
there will bo several s-its of hands per
forming the labors we have been des
cribing in two or three part of the
building at the same time. The
capacity ot the City of Chicago is
about fifty thousand hogs daily
throughout the packing season, and
these hogo average nearly two bund
red ami fifty pounds;
The laborers never seem to know
the day of t'.e week, for they areas
busy on Sunday as iu the middle of
the week. What plea there can be
for this gross violation of t'ac Sabbath
we could not discover. There was to
our mind no more necessity for that
sacrilege than fur the or4???*?J n"
hier to have bis ploughs and hoes at*
work. But all mammoth concerns,
such as these pork packing houses, j
iron furnaces, railroads an 1 tho like,
etui commit acts or crimes that silene
the condemnation of tho world, if
they do not receive its commendation,
whereas if a private individual were
to do the stiineor similar deeds on a
small scale, he would be denounced
i far and near. So also with great
thefts in these degenerate times; they
corn-mat id the very admiration of the
world because of their daring and
stupendous criminality. Petty lar
cehy is handled by petit juries, and
they both seem petty indeed by the
side of these mighty adventurers.
All the ?fihl of these house are uti
lized by a manufactory of fertilizers
near by, who uso everything profit
ably except perhaps the livers and
lights. These arc bulky, and almost
valueless. It takes nineteen livers to
make the bulk of one liver after the

big price by the cotton planters.?

A Blue Glass Curo in Chicago.
A. prominent member of the Chica.
go Board of Trade relates an experi
enco in his own family which tends
to confirm the blue ray theory. His
daughter had been an invalid for sev
eral months, and recently bad been,
so much debilitated that she was un
able to move her limbs more than a
few inches. Dust week he had one of
tho windows of his residence fitted up
with blue glass, and the young lady
was v?heeled in a chair to a position
where she could enjoy the benefit of
the lay. The fisst day she felt some
what better. The second day the
affected part was uncovered so that
she could receive the full force of the
ray on the lower part of thespine,
without the interposition of clothing.
The family was astonished the follow
ing morning to see her bound into tho
room at breakfast time, the picture
and the very tact of health. She is en
ti rely recovered, and her father is a
happy man. though he confesses that,
while the blue glass appears to bo a
wonderful thing, lie ''cannot sea
through it" a?clearly as ho would like
