FARII AND HOjIE.
Oh, not the smile of other lands.
Though far and, wide our feet may roam.
Can e'er unile the genial hands
That knit our hearts to borne.
Remembrance still like dews, returns,
To cheer and cherish life's young flower.
And f rieudniip decks the sacral urus,
That stand in memory's tower.
There still, a spirit, night and day,
With sweet, but melancholy cure,
Perpetual homage loves to pay,
And keel's each trophy fair.
It wears a look of olden time.
And rich and well-iememliered words.
Fall train its lips in tones that chime
With those 01 eh Idhood's birds.
And childhood's birds are Hone and Truth,
And their's tbe pleasant notes that bring,
To bless in age the thoughts ol youlh,
And erery glorious wing.
And sweet the vMons they restore.
Of all the loved, the bright, the true,
Until we trend racli scene once more,
And all te past renew.
The blessed past - the memory's home,
'I he hoine. f buried hoc the urn,
Where slirinod, uniiiouldering, blight in loom,
Our flowers we seek and mourn.
There, Time and Fate Yield up each bud ;
Their niutu:il hands have riven ;
Till Keeling hails with many a flood.
Each earliest gift f heaven.
Oar home on earlh is childhood's heart,
Indwelling In one Sftol we Ant!,
And thus our nature wins from art
An image for tiie mind.
And hence the joys of othor lands.
Though far aud wide our feet may roam,
Can ne'er unite i ho aiicred bands,

Experiment Willi Hooey.
A correspondent of the Scientific Amer
ican say1 : I put up six one pound cans
of beautiful linden homy, being careful
to make i: ne hon;orcnious mass of
stirring. It v n thrown from the combs
by an extractor on July 20th, and put
into thecms on August 1st. The cans
were placed-respectfully :n follows: One
into dark, drv v. liar; one each under
shades of ml j-fllow, green and blue
glass; and tbe sixth can in full light.
On November St!i the honey in the cel
larcandied to a white. November 22nd
to December 10th, honey under colored
hhades candied, first in red, next in the
yell'jw, gieen and blue; while the honey
in full light remained transparent until
January, wlini it soon candied after ex
posure to i-ifV'n. e cold weather. From
my experience an equal temperature
would preserve certain kinds of honey,
while other kinds would candy under al
most any circumstances. I think that
candied honey, instead of being looked
upon with disftvor, should be recognized
as cvnienuy pare, l none, however,

CoTrrinca rr Wound or Trrrv
It often happens that, either by inten-!
lion, as in pruning, or ty accident, trees
are wounded in various wavs. A com
mon practice is to cover large woundr
with coal tar; but this is objected to by
some as injurious to the tree. Experi
ments made in the' orchards and gardens
of the l'omological institute, at Ruth
lengen, in Germany, go to 6how, how
ever, that its nso in covering large
wwund.4 is not injurious, but that, on
the contrary, a callus readily forms un
der the tar, on the edges of the wound
and that the wounded part is thus pro
tected from decay. There is, neverthe
less, another objection ; if the tar is ap
plied a little too thick the sun melts it
and it runs down on the bark of the
tree. This can be obviated by mixing
and stirring, and thus incorporating with
the tar, alout three or four times its
weight of powdered slate known as
late flour the mixture being known as
plastic slate, and used for roofing pur
ioscs. It is easily applied with an old
knife or flat stick, and though it hardens
on the surface, it remains soft under
neath. The heat of the sun does not
men it, nor does the coldest winter I
weather cause it to crack, neither does
it peel off.
The same mixture is also useful for
other pur,K)ses in the garden. Leaky
water pots, barrels, pails, shutters,
shades, etc., can be easily repaired with
it. and much annoyance and loss of time
be avoided. It will stick to any surface,
provided it be not oily; nnd as it does
not harden when kept in a mass, it is al
ready for use..

It requires but small capital to start
with bee-keeping on a small scale, and as
skill and knowledge increases numbers
increase. The fear of being stung deters
many from keeping bees who would other
wise gladly engage in it. To have one's
eyes closed up lor a day or two, and per
haps sutler with a severe headache the
while, is by no means pleasant. This,
however, can be easily avoided by provi
ding one s sell with veil and gloves. A
cheap and easy way to make a bee veil is
as lollows: Procure a piece of plain,
coarse black cotton bobinet, sew it up as
a sack, run a drawstring in the end, which
tie around the crown of a hat ; put a string
in the lower end also.which tie around the
neck, or simply tuck it in around the
neck which will answer quite as well.
Should a bee strike the veil with the inten
tion of stinging, the brim of the hat will
hold it sumcient distance from the lace
to render it imposible for it to reach one

Gentleness and the judicious use of alittle
smoke are the most effectual bee charms.
No one should attemp to keep bees in any
but a movable frame hive. The time to
make bee-keeping successful and profita
ble in the old log and box gums is gone,
They afford too many hidingplaces for the
moth and its progeny of worms, and make
it too difficult, indeed next to an impossi
bility, to extricate them. A cood plain
movable frame hive, well painted, will
last a life-time. There is no such thing as
a moth-proof hive. Common sense will
teach anyone that where a bee can enter
a moth can enter. The secret of success
in keening out moths is to keeD vour col
onies full and strong, in a close, well
made hive, and they will atend to that
part of the business themselves. If one
wishes bees to do well, by all means look
to the strength of your colonics and not
the number of your hives. " Granger

How to Can Fruit.
Though canned fruit can be bought at
any grocery at reasonable figures, there is
really nothing m the market like the
fruit canned at home ; every one knows
that. Most of the canned fruit in
market is in tin, and some of it is very
good, though not so good as one can pre
pare herself, for whatever is done by the
wholesale is usually poorly done. If a
can is erfectly air-tight, it cannot by
any possible means impart a metalic
flavor to the fruit. Some people will
open a tin can, pour out part of the
fruit, and leave the rest in; of course,
that remaining exposed, as it is, to the
action of the atmosphere, will soon ac
quire an unpleasant flavor. When a can
is opened pour all the truit out and keep
it in the earthen or glass dish until
eaten, nou in tin. Always can tomatoes,
P'berriesa and strawberries in tin.

crystals of citric acid, which makes them
so sour that nothing can sweeten them;

least trouble if canned in tin; so will
strawberries and gooseberries. Cherries
are better if put in glass cans; raspber
ries, peaches, plums, huckleberries,
blackberries nnd currants may be put in
either, and no one would know what
Ulty nlle camicuiu umm tuiu,
Now for the process. Cleanse the cans
thoroughly, and test them to ascertain
if they leak or are cracked. If any of
the tin cans leak, repair or send them to
the tinner for'repairs. If glass cans are
defective do not use them for canning,
but keep them for storing things in the
pantry. When the cans have been
cleansed, put warm water in them in a
dish-pan; just before canning have ready
another pan of water quite Lot, and put
in two or three cans that have already
been warmed in water; take out as you
are ready to fill with fruit and stand
them upon a hot platter while filling
them; tne platter keeps the jars from
coming in contact with a cold surface
like the table, and catches what fruit
may drop in filling.
Look over the f' uit carefully, and if it
has pits remove them, leaving only
a few to highten the flavor; for a
can of cherries leave in about a
dozen pits; for peaches one or two.
Use a porcelain kettle for cooking
the fruit and only sugar enough to render
it palatable. If fruit is made very sweet it
is unhealthy, indigestible and expensive;
it is the pleasant, natural acid of the fruit
which our systems require, and sugar
sjHiils it all.
Teaches should be canned by the same
method, but preparing them rememberif
they are quite npe the skin can be re
moved without using a knife, simplyby
pouring boiling water over them the
same as with tomatoes; then cut in
halves and remove the pits. Perhaps
more water may le put. in to form the
sirup than is used for strawberries.
Plums, same as jx-aches, only they will
need to be pared with a knife. How
ever, we have so few cultivated plums
that a method of preparing
ones, or of making the famous plum
butter that our old settlers had to de
pend on for every occasion, would be in

M Inter Pastures.
It is desirable to avoid, rs far as poi- J
ble, an annual expenditure for labor in
the management of our lands. We re
quire a certain amount of forage for win
ter. Pulling fodder is one of the most
extensive and least profitable of the
i .iwr:it ions of the farm. Well cured fod-
ler is the most palatable forage which can 1
, be iven to horses. !nj is champagne the
I most agreeable of all artificial fluids for
! man. But fodder is too expensive for
I the farmer's horse, and the champagne
too expensive foi the farme man. Just
think of a farmer going into a hundred
acre corn fie d with a gang of hands and
handling every separate blade of every
corn stalk. Uontrast this with a mower
cutting down eight acres of grass a day,
say sixteen tons, raked up by a horse
rake, teddered by horse power, loaded
into the wagon and thence into the barn
by a hay-litter, untouched by human
bands in the whole precess.
But there is a cheaper process than
this. It is one which cannot be adopted
at the north, because the climate will not
allow it. This cheaper plan is to provide
winter pastures for our mules, horses,
colts, cattle and sheep, thereby enabling
them to mew and save their own hay
without cost to us, either in the way of
negroes, mowers, hay stacks or barns.
lhe way to obtain a good winter pas
ture, is simple and not expensive. Take
a piece of wood land, thin out the
worthless timber, leaving rail trees and
mast-beaung trees, lhe exact distance
cannot be given, because trees differ very
much in the amount of shade which they
produce. The Kentucky rule is ti thin
the timber, so that the ground shall get
sunlight at least a portion of the day,
otherwise the grass will be sour and re
jected by live stock. The ground should
be well sprouted ; grubbing is not neces
sary, though it is best. The tree tops
and brush should be piled and burned,
and the ashes scattered. Except for ap
pearance, the logs need not be piled and
burned. The ground should not bo
plowed ; grass seeds should be sown on
the unbroken ground, and then all the
available live stock of the farmer should
be turned upon it, to trample in the
seeds. Hogs are excellent for this pur
pose, feeding them shelled corn, scatter
ing as widely as possible, and feeding in
a different place every day.
The seed sown, should consist of or
chard, blue, herd's and meadow oat
grass, if the latter can be obtained. One
bushel of this mixture to be sowed to
the acre one-half orchard grass and the
other half of the other Beeds, in equal
Methods of Cooking.
Boiling. In boiling a piece of meat
the vessel should be large enough to al
low the meat to be entirely surrounded
and covered with water, and sufficient to
last the whole time of cooking. If the
lid be kept on the meat will be csoked in
less time and with less fuel. Clean, soft
water, when it can be obtained, should
always, be used, and filtered if necessary.
If you wish to secure all the juices and
flavor of the meat ic should be put into
boiling water, and then stood aside to
simmer at a temperatute not exceeding
one hundred and ninety degrees. Quick
boiling will harden the tenderest piece of
meat. The scum, which is chiefly coag
ulated blood and the dirt of the saucepan,
should be carefully removed. Theaddition
of a little cold water four or five times,
in quantities of not more than a gill,
will assist the raising of the scum. The
time necessary is about a quarter of an
hour to twenty minutes for a pound.
Fresh Killed meat requires rather longer
time than meat which has been hung a
few days. A piece of string or tane, tied
around the meat with a loop, will enable
you to remove it from the saucepan with
out sticking the fork into it.which is al
ways to be avoided, because the juices and
flavor then go into liquor.
Stewing is a gradual simmering. It
may be done in a saucepan over the fire,
or in a stone iar which will stand the
fire, with a lid fitting steam-tight. The
common red jar is not to be recommended ;
it does not stand the heat, and the glaze,
which is a composition of lead, often
gives way in the presence of salt. Stone
jars are preferable to metal sauce-pans ;
they can be easily cleaned and they re
tain the heat better. For stewing, se
lect clean meat, free from blood. The
quantity of water should be about a
quart to a pound of meat ; but this
liciuor will be very rich, and it can easily
be reduced, ii necessary, with warm wa
ter. Add about a teaspoonful of salt to
a quart ot water; I think the salt is best
added toward the end of the cooking, as
the tendency is to harden the meat. Peas
l)oiled with salt pork wiil remain hard
throughout the cooking. Bring the
water gradually to the boil, remove all
the scum, and let the contents simmer
till the flavor of the meat is absorbed in
the liquor. Remove all the fat, which
can be eaten with bread, or used for pud
dings or frying.
All and every kind of meat can be
used for a stew. They may be used to
gether or separately, according to taste
or convenience. The better the meat
the better the stew, but by careful stew
ing the coarsest and roughest parts will
become soft, tender and easily digested,
which would not be possible by any
other cooking. All the gristly parts
feet, shanks, knuckles should bestewed.
There is no other way of cooking these
parts to advantage. They require time,
and this is often the difficulty and objec
tion ; but what is to prevent a woman,
when the family are all sitting around
the fire in the evening, thinking about
to-morrow's dinner? The fire which
warms the children will also cook their
dinner. The great vice of most women,
not only among the poor, but among the
middle classes, is that they never think
of cooking till they feel hunjjfy. Trim
mings of all kinds of meat can some
times be purchased cheaply.
A woman who has but little to spend
should watch her opportunities. Sheep's
feet, the shank bones of legs of mutton,
and pieces of bone and gristle are often
thrown away as useless. We used form
erly to send ox-tails to the tan yard,
and even now how much goes there
which could be turned into good food !
Twopence or threepence spent in the
furchase of bones although containing
ittle meat, they contain thirty percent,
ot gelatine, and may be made to yield
excellent lood; large bones should be
broken into small pieces, and allowed to
simmer till every bone is white and dry.
I have said nothing about flavoring, or
thickening or adding vegetables. As a
rule, all vegetables, except potatoes, may
le cut into slices ana cooked in the
stew; or, it preferred thev mav be cooked
separately, and added afterward. Car-1
rots, turnips, parsnips, swedes, cabbages,
leeks, onions, celery, beetroots, vegeta
ble marrow any or all of those may be
used in a stew. J. C. liuckmoxter.

largest artificial hand ever made. A
single finger is about as large as an ordi

the size t a dinner plate. The hand
holds a torch, the extremity of which
forms a platform en which ten men can

the hand is made the full height of the
statue when complete would be one hun- i
dred and twenty feet. It is to stand
a pedestal one hundred feet high, so that

summit will be two hundred and twenty
feet. 1 here will be a staircase inside,
and through the arm out to the platform
forming the extremity of the torch. The

portion of the staircase with it, and is eo
huge that for transportation it had to be
constructed in parts which could be taken

that he is a dangerous enemy of his

that for full ten years the republican

labors have brought that result about
merit the gratitude of the country, as
they will receive the blessings of God.
That mighty church will no longer be
divided in America by geographical
lines, nor disturbed by sectional pas
sions, but united, as the body of Christ,
will press forward in the work of man's
elevation everywhere. In the address, a
week since, it is declared : " These
fraternized churches have no further
occasion for sectional disputes or acrim
onious diflersnces." As the love of the
whole for all the parts has animated the
churches, and raised them nearer the
throne, so the same spirit will strengthen
our union of states, and will raise our
country into higher regions of patriotism
and upon brighter fields of glory.
Now, my countrymen, I have to ask
your judgment touching the question
and measure of reform. What think
you, Is reform a necessity of our condi
tion? Do we need reform in respect to
the purity of the public service; in re
spect to the number and character of our
public officers, and in respect to the
amount of money collected from the peo
ple, and the economy of its expendi
ture? I think I know your judgment
and feel the response of your hearts.
I now assume that, intelligently and
earnestly, you are in favor of reform ;
that you sincerely desire an improve
ment in the public service, so that it
shall become purer, more efficient and
less expensive. The practical question
of these times is, how can these results
be attained ? and how can each man con
tribute to their attainment ? Ex
perience has taught us there is but one
remedy, and that is a change of admin
istration. 1 ou mav hold mass-meet
ings and conventions, and declare your
' wisnes 111 resolutions, but your com
plaints will go to the winds if you do
not give them force by the ballot, chang
ing men and politics. What other reli
ance have you ? Is it in the character
and promises of the candidate for presi
dent? tour vears ago last lGth of April
(ten. Grant approved a system of regula
tions for civil service reform. He gave
assurance, the most solemn possible, that
political assessments had been forbidden
within the various departments, and
that "honesty and efficiency, not poli
tical activity, would determine the
tenure of office." That approval and
assurance are found in an " executive
order." Many of you trusted and ex-pressed-your
confidence by voting for
Gen. Grant's re-election. You thought
that with the aid of a board of officers
he could and would remedy the growing
evils. You trusted him because you
admired him as a great and successful
soldier. And you relied upon his per
sonal integrity and his iron will. Have
you been disappointed ? Political assess
ments, the most pernicious influence,
have been and are enforced with relent-
Collected as a tax and
a bribe, manhood, honor
and public virtue are all assailed
has that other assurance been kept to
the nopei J lave "honesty and effi
ciency, and not political activity,'" de
termined the tenure of office? Again
the answer is found in investigations, re
ports, indictments, verdicts and judg
ments. Whose fault is it that there has
been no reform, but on the contrary that
the public service has been drifting from
bad to worse? It is not fair to charge it
altogether upon Gen. Grant. That
charge springs from an unworthy motive
on the part of a class of republicans who
seek Gov. Hayes' election upon the
ground that he can accomplish reforms
which Gin. Grant could not or would
not bring about. Upon this subject
Gov. Morton expressed the following
opinion in his late speech:
" The administration of any president
will be in the main what the party
which elected him makes it. If he
breaks away from his party, the chances
are that he will be broken down. In a
government of parties like ours the presi
dent must have bis choice of officers.
The men to whom he owes his election,
who have defended him from assaults, to
whom he must lKk for support in the
future, will ordinarily controlhis action,
and he will do nothing offensive to them."
In a larger degree that expresses the
truth in respect to Gen, Grant's admin
istration. It is what its party has made
it. And his party is what its leaders
have made it. i our years ago, m my
opening address as a candidate for gov
nor, I expressed my personal respect for
Gen. Grant in the opinion that the peo
ple had less cause to apprehend an evil
policy lrom him than trom tne malign
and powerful influences with which he
would be surrounded. You all know
that the results have more than realized
my predictions. Civil service reform is
now sneered at, and has ceased to be
even a pretense. Wasteful expenditures
have continued, and official . misconduct
has become widespread and alarming.
Surely the president can not be relieved
of responsibility of so shameful a condi
tion ot public affairs, but yet tne aomin
istiation is, in the main, what the party
managers have made it. Will it be
otherwise if that party elects the tuc-
cessor? Do yu find the ground of such
hope and expectation in the candidate
himself? Do you claim that he is a per
son of higher personal character than
ft r . r. . 1.1 . 1 "ii -
uen. tjranii And inai ne win more
certainly keep his pledges to the people?
Or do you think he is a man of stronger
will to stand by his convictions and his
pledges ? Gen. Grant had four years of
civil experience when he pledged him-
seli and his administration to reiorm.
Even he was not strong enough to
achieve success in the midst of the ad
verse influences which party and party
leaders brought him.
Is the party, with the machinery in
the hands of the well-known managers
and leaders, better than Gen. Grant?
Does it show a disposition or ability for
reform ? A democratic house of repre
sentatives has lifted the covering and the
country is astounded and shocked at the
spectacle. You may mdge ot the tem
per of the party by the manner in which
it receives the investigations, exposures
and proposed relorms. When you see
the newspapers and 1-aders convulsed
with rage because crime is exposed and
criminals are brought to punishment,
you know full well that a party under
such control can not restore public vir
tue. Again, you seek retrenchment in
public expenditures. Can you rea
sonably expect it from the party in
power? Turn to the history of the past
eight months. A democratic house de
termined upon retrenchment. In every
bill appropriating money they applied
the test the lowest sum possible consis
tent with efficient administration. Un
less offices weie abolished, extravagant
salaries reduced, and unneccessary work
suspended or abandoned, and the result
was a reduction of about forty million
dollars as the bills passed the house.
The retrenchment was resisted in the
senate and the opposition was carried to
the extreme of a threatened suspension
of the public service. So determined
was the senate that upon many bills the
house was compelled to yield somewhat.
The result was a reduction of only thirty
millions in the appropriations, as they
finally passed. A reduction of thirty
millions at the first session is the reform
in economy with which the house re
turns to the people. Wrill you stand by
the houseuor will you sustain the senat
and the administration? My fellow
citizens, upon which side of this well
defined line "will you stand ?
I have another inquiry to make of
you, the answer to which will influence
your votes. Have you reason to confide
in and rely upon the pledges of reform
made at St. Louis ? The pledges were
distinctly made ; not so in the Cincinnati
platform. There no reform, no retrench
ment was promised. The assurance that
the civil service should be purified, the
expenditures reduced, and useless offices
abolished, would have been a rebuke and
condemnation of the administration ot
Gen. Grant. On the contrary, the Cin
cinnati platform declares the "national
administration merits commendation for
its honorable work in the management
of domestic and foreign affairs." But
may you trust the pledges made at St.
Louis? Who will be most likely to
abolish the thousands of useless offices ?
In some instances they were created tor
party favorites, and in others they have
been continued after their occasion has
ceased. They are now filled and their
emoluments enjoyed by men who con
tribute money and bestow their labor to
elect Gov. Hayes.
Gov. Tilden will encourage no politi
cal embarrassment in correcting this
great evil. Not so with Gov. Hayes.
This reform requires that thousands of
places of profit be made vacant now
filled by his supporters. The present
house is democratic. Has it not proved
itself true to every pledge given ? In its
investigations it has gene as thoroughly
into the work as was possible for men to
do who had been excluded from the re
cords and the departments for many
years. In the reductions of expendi
tures and the abolition of useless offices
it went as far as the persistent opposition
ot the senate would allow. Have you
occasion to be offended with this house?
Has its work not been in the interest of
the people? Wa3 it not for you that
useless offices were abolished; that $30,
000,000 were saved ; and that the enor
mous corruption was brought to light ?
If this house had not been democratic,
do you not know that Gen. Belknap
would still lie secretary of war? Be
cause this house is of and for the people,
it is denounced by ever epithet that a
vicious political taste can command.
Until the present congress the demo
crats have Deeu a small minority for
masy years, and have been unable to
control the record; but in the house they
have now made a record, by no means as
full and complete as if they had con
trolled the fortunes of their measures
elsewhere. You may not agree to many
things that were said, and you may be
dissatisfied that some measures were" de
layed and others lost in the house, yet
do you not choose to go forward and
complete the work well begun rather
khan go back to the practices of preced
ing years ? Would you venture to re

years? Had 30,U00,000 been saved

There is one resolution in the platform
adopted at Chicago, in 1864, that has
been the subject of great misconstruc
tion. It has been construed to show
that the war, up to that time, had been
a failure. I don't think it properly bears
that construction ; but it is a thing of
the past, which I shall not discuss to-day.
Morton told them yesterday that Gov.
Tilden and I were both members of that

formed the country long igo that in the
committee which decided that he op
posed the resolution, and so far as I am
conc-rned it is simply-a lie made out of
whole cloth, for I was not a member of
the convention at all. Great cheering.
What do you think of such leadership?
you proud republicans, you men who
would rather sustain the truth than
falsehood. Will you follow it? Have
we been growing prosperous in the direc
tion you would like ? and don't you
think we had better change now ? God
will bless us. God blesses all changes
for the right, if we will return to the
principles of economy in expenditure,
dispensing with unnecessary sine-cures
and apply the public money for the pub
lic good. Cheers.

or the place; saw a lot of men there,
near to a larsre tree. I notified a lot of
Jeraeymen that they might be wanted,

and looked at tnem lor a nuie wnne ;

and "pulldown your vest," which I
didn't ao. The most of them, though,
ran away. I afterwards went to the
wharf and locked the Creedmoor cutter,
but they came down and took her away.
I forbid them doing it, but they didn't
seem to care what I said. They struck

. Don't Belong to Our Party.
The old Knickerfcoker magazine, under
the editorship of Louis Gaylord Clark,
was famous twenty or thirty years ago
for its out-of-tha-way anecdotes. Among
them was one concerning a party which
existed in one ot the southern states
about the time of the first election of
Gen. Washington to the presidency.
called the "John Jones' party."
lhe said Jones, alter whom the party
took its name, was a man of talent, a
plotting, shrewd fellow, with a good deal
of a kind of "yankee cunning;" inshoit,
possessing all the requisites of a success
ful politician, except personal popularity.
To overcome this latter deficiency,
of which he was well aware, especially in
a contest with a popular candidate tor
congress, John Jones early avowed him
self as the peculiar and devoted friend
of Gen. Washington, and on this safe
ground, as he thought, he endeavored to
place his rival in opposition. In order to
cairy out this object more effectually, he
called a meeting in his county, of "all
those friendly to the election 01 uen.
On the day appointed Mr. John Jones
appeared and was, on the cut-and-dried
motion of a frendly adherent, made chair
man of the meeting. He opened the
proceedings by a high and carefully
studied eulogium upon the life and ser
vice of Washington, but taking care only
to!speak of himself as his early patron and
most devoted friend. He concluded his
remarks by a proposition to form a party,
to be called " The True and Only Sons of
the iather 01 his Country." and lor
that object he submitted to the meet
ing a resolution something like the fol
" .Resolved, That we are the friends of
Gen. Gerge Washington, and will sus

reading the resolution, "tbe chair is now
about to put the question. The chair
man hopes that every raan will de
clair his sentiment either for or against
the resolution. All those in favor of the
resolution will please to say "Ay."
A thundering "Ayl" shook the
very walls cf the building. The united
voices were like the " sound of many
" Now, gentlemen, for the oppostion,"
said John Jones. "All those who arc
contrary-minded will please to say " No.'
Not a solitary voice was heard. The
dead silence seemed to confuse Mr. Jones
very much. After some hesitation and
fidgeting he said :
" Gentlemen, do vote. The chair cannot
decide a disputed question when nobody
voles lor the other side. W e want a di
rect vote, so that the country may know
who are the real true mends or Gen
Upon this appeal one of the audience
arose and iaid :

" lhe amendment is in order 1 ac

man, speaking very quickly; "and the
chair will now put the question as
"All those who are in favor of Gen.

"Ay ayl" said John Jones and his
brother, with loud voices, which they
had supposed would be drowned in
the unanimous thunder of the affirmative
The "chair" squirmed and hesitated.
" Tut the contrary 1 " said a hundred
voices at the same moment.
"All those op po-po sed," said the
chair, " will please say ' No ! "
" No o e I " thundered every voice
but two in the whole assembly, and
those were Jones' and his brother's.
Then followed a roar of laughter, as Car

An English Estimate of American
dust rial Trogress.
Douglas Calton, one of the English
judges in the group for railway appliance
at Philadelphia, writes as follows to the
London Time : I last visited the United
States in 1856. The progress made in
the interval of twenty years is very
marked. The stimulus afforded by the
demands and expenditure on account of
the war, assisted by the protective system
which has been adopted, has developed
and nursed every variety of manufact
uie, from iron rails to Parisian fancy
articles. The advocate of the protective
policy say it should be called natiuna'.ity,
not protection. Without discusKing the
wisdom of the protective policy, or how
far it has been instrumental in aggravat
ing the present stagnation of trade, it is
certain that it has Ted to the erection of a
large numler of factories and f numer
ous iron and steel works, and to a rapid
development of manufacturing industry,
as evidenced by the great increase in late
years ol the amount of coal raised. Thus,
while the total amount of coal raised in
the United States in 1870 was about 82,-
000,000 tons, as compared with 113,000,
000 raised in Great Britain, the coal raised
in the United States in 1874 was 59,000,
000 tons, as compared with 125,000,000
raised in Great Britain. Of the coal
thus raised in 1874, onlv about 500,000
wan exported from the United States, of
which about 400,000 tons was export
ed to the Dominion of Canada. The
coal-fields of the United States cover an
area of 196,000 miles, and the coal is, in
most case, easily accessible; iron ore
is Sbundant. The rate of wages for un
skilled labor varied in the works which
I visited from ninety cents a day toa dol
lar and twenty cents equivalent, at the
present rate of exchanging, in our money
to three shilling six pence, or four shill
ings seven pence. The wages of carpen
ter, joiners, blacksmiths, and fitters
varied from one dollar and fifty cents
to two dollars and seventy-five cents i.
e., in our money, from five shillings six
pence to ten shillings six pence. The day
is at least ten hours long; these higher
prices are moreover counterbal
anced by the use of machinery, guided
by unskilled labor to an extent much ex
ceeding that generally in use in this
country. Notwithstanding the stagna
tion of trade, I observed several new
works in course of erection. Although
there is nt so large an amount of new
railway in construction as was the case
in 1872 and 1873, many lines are substi
tuting steel for iron rails. Tbe rails now
used in the United States are almost all
being manufactured in that country, and
it is not probable that England will tie
called upon much longer to supply rails
for the United States. The development
which the manufacturers of the United
States have admitted, and the energy
wkh which they work, make it manifest
that not only can we no longer expect to
obtain a market tor our manufactured
goods in the United States, but that we
must be prepared to find the manufactur
ers of that country competing with us in
everv market to which we and they have
access for all our principal mamifuactres,
such as iron, cotton ijoods, etc. It is
most important that England should
thoroughly appreciate its true position in
Utilizing the Motion of 1 lie Sea.
For the last two centuries attention
Has been directed towards those natural
elements of power which might be de
rived from the rise and fall of the tide.
Theoretically this would afford a source
of power which would be limitless, lut
practically it has never gone turther than
the engrossing of such tidal motors on
paper. O.' late this subject of utilizing
the natural movement of water has been
renewed, with the idea of making the
rolls and oscillations of the ship caused
by the ocean swell as the means of pro
pelling the vessel. On the occasion of
the passage of a vessel lrom England to
Australia, a voyage extending over
some 2,000 hour, a ship made 1,705,088
beam oscillations or rolls, and 1,041,137
fore and aft oscillations or pitches. A
Mr. Tower, of England, describes a ma

impart propulsion to the vessel. By the
natural rise ana iaii 01 tne vessel air is
compressed into cylinders, which, as res
ervoirs of power, are to be called upon
for mechanical use. lhe inventor sup
poses that the long swell in the tropics
would give at every impulse a power
equal to thirty-horse power, and that the
average Atlantic wave was as much as
two-hundred-horse power, while a heavy
head sea would represent six-hundred-horse
Lost in the Wall Street Whirlpool.
New York Cor. Philadelphia Ledger.
Almost every day the auction sales of
gentlemen's private establishments arj
bringing up to tne sunace tne sunken
wrecks of Wall street. One of these,
which comes off to-morrow, is of an espe
cially noteworthy character. I refer to
"all the high-bred, lass-trotting roau,
saddle and family horses, together with
the elegant carriages, road wagons, fine
harness, stable fixtures, etc., the property
of Daniel Drew, Esq , which (according
to the advertisement) must positive.y ue
sold regardless of cost or value, and with

Mr. Drew says he bore the loss ol all nis
fortune without a pang, " until they came
and took away my horses, and then I be
gan to feel that 1 had nothing else lett in
the world worth living for." The old
gentleman, it may be as well said here, is
in much better health than he nas
been for some time past, and though still
very feeble, he is gaining strength every
day. In the course of a day or two he
hopes to be able to go down to see his
life-long friend Com. Vanderbilt.
