The republicans staked their all on

machinery; forced the democrats to meet
them on ground of their choosing and to
accept an unequal venture us a test case.
As the canvass advanced, Ohio, though
hotly contested, was given a subordinate
lvosition. Indiana was pitched upon to
be the U aterloo ot the democrats, and,
obliged in anv event to fight their best

thus made to occupy n line of battle not

from Indiana. In carrying Indiana the
democrats have secured what thev did
not bargain for when thev nominated Til

the Indiana democrats, m spite of the cry
ot the uino democrats, that the nomina
tion of lildon would w ilder a contest for

convention, after thorough deliberation
and a distinct understanding of the issue

republicans the October states and

gpiierous sin ! courage jus fidelity, of the
disappointed democrats ot the west.
There was every reason to tear that they
would relapse into disaffected elements,
throwing the entire brunt ot the conflict
where the convention had placed it, upon
the eastern and Paeifie states, Xew York,
New Jersey, Connecticut, California and
The outcome battles the calculations of
the most sanguine. It exceeds all the
original beliefs and reliances. To run
the republicans back upon their inner
line in Hives' own state and to carry
Morton's outright, defeating the greatest
of the republican organizers in a pitched
battle where he j-osressed every advant

the ift. Louis convention, hopeless of
both states, resolved to rest the fortunes
of the campaign upon a totally different
alignment and policy.
The republicans will claim, of course,
that the election of Pdue-Jeans Williams
does not assure Indiana to Tilden. But
they who think this will reckon without
their host, while the sophistries and de
vices of the managcrswhowillattempt by
specious arguments to hold their forces to

whole, Hendricks is stronger in Indiana

Address by Parke Godwin at Cooper
Sew York special to Courier-Journal, uct. inn.
A large crowd filled the hall of Coopei
institute to-night on. the ocsasion or a
lecture by Parke Godwin. Many prom:
inent and mnuenuai cilixcub wcuuicu
seats on the platform. Mr. Franklin
Mr. Uoawin, on oeing presented miue
audience, said :
I must thank you lor this large gath
ering aua kina greeting, uso aouDt
m:uiy of the faces here present have been
attracted by cheery breezes from the west.
The speaker then began a review ot tue
political history of the country, dating
lrom the war ana ttie adoption 01 tue
constitutional amendments. First, he
wanted it understood that the war ended
eleven years ago ; that as an issue it was
ended, ana that new questions ana new
interests were now beiore the country
The auestion of this canvass was, have
the oartv in power discharged their duties
to the country under the new aspect 01
affairs, or have they evaded and timed
with them ?
The republicans,contiiiiied thespeaker-
started without the policy to meet the
exigencies of a particular crisis, so eager
were they lor mere ascendency, and not
for true mastery so blind, so deficient
iu sagacity, that this party chose for its
leader a man who, to say no more, was
quite inexperienced in civic measures
anci quite ignorant of civic iues. TUjs
has been a party rather of promises than
of performances more devoted partisan
ends than to patriotic aims. Mr. (rod-
win then spoKe of the lack of financial
policy as displayed by the republican
party ; he exposed the exorbitant ex
travagance of the administration, and
praised the democratic house of repre
sentatives fcr reducing appropriations
by $30,000,000. or 120,000 lor every
congressional district in the country.
Our tariff, said he, is a great catalogue of
exactions, four or five thousand in num
ber, not levied for revenue, but to ob
struct revenue, and so aid certain and
special interests. Merchants of New
"iork, where are your clipper ships?
Where is your tonnage ? Where are your
stately steamers? Gone ! Taxed out of
existence by a curse which straddles
your shoulders, aud which will remain as
long as the present administration re
mains in power. Of the currency ques
tion, Mr. Godwin read republican testi
mony to show the lack of statesmanship
and the continued greed and ignorance
of that party. The republican party, be
said, did not favor hard money. The re
publican party, in their wisdom, thought
that the remedy for a plethora of paper
money was more paper money. Mr.
Sherman's sham resumption bill the
speaker described as a tub thrown to in
flation, while Mr. Schurz demonstrated
the utter hollowness of this bill, but
voted for it because he thought it. might
bind the consciences of his republican
friends. The double-dealing and incom
jK'tency of the republicans were next
shown in the matter of civil service.
Said Mr. Sod win, Mark Twain said the
other day of our civil service system :
It throws a fellow into the custom-house
who doesn't know a bill of laden from
transit of Venus. During Grant's ad-lwinistrationoffice-holdershave
from "W.900 to 94,000. We hear ol Conk
ling's men or Blaine's men, not men of
the people. These oflice-holders are the
retainers of politicians, and when they
put their fingers tx lar in their prstectors
conspire to bide up defalcations for fear
ot damaging the party, liiese are the
men who are assessed to carry elections
or turned out as bread-and butter bri
gades, boys in blue. Why, most of the
boys in blue I have seen must have been
infanta in arms during the war. Laugh
ter. Mr. Godwin next described the civil
service reform humbug of Mr. Curtis and
Mr. Eaton. The nepotism of President
Grant was also touched U!on, and the
speaker explained that congress could j
hardly be expected to reform when it i
stood so much in need of reform itself.
f republican reformers Mr Godwin had
the testimony of Mr. Hoar read, showing
shameless and colossal corruption of the
administration, and asked, how are you
going to get cleanliness out of such a sty
as that V l'ension frauds, post office
frauds, contract frauds, building frauds,
grave-stone frauds and freedmen's bureau
frauds were next-described as fruits of
republican rule. To prove the wide
spread corruption the speaker appealed
only to republican authorities. Mr. Wool
sey, Carl Schurz, clergymen, editors and
merchants were called together to try to
stop this wide-spread and almost univer
sal political delay, originated and de
veloed during the past ten years. Said
Mr. Godwin, some say this is not repub
licanism, but Giantism. This is like the
bishop who cursed and said he cursed as
a man, and not as a bishop, and some
asked what would become of the bishop
when the man was damned. II Grantism
is damned, what becomes of republican
ism? When have republicans denounced
Grant or Grantism? When on news-
aper or one leader spoke the truth of
m, lie was excommunicated like Sum
The speaker theu read opinions ex
pressed in republican conventionsof Grant
and his administration, which were saluted
with peals of laughter. Kcpublican cam
tiign talk, said the speaker, is but one
ng war whoop. They dig up issues
from the rottenness of the grave in regard
to persons. In abuse they are beyond
comparison, for they have all the resour
ces of billingsgate at their command.
Mr. Godwin next spoke of Mr. Hayes as
a republican makeshift, andt-aid there was
but a very meagre prospect that he would
turn a Hercules to clean the Augean sta
blesof the dominant party, notwithstand
ing that he was the candidate of the re
form candidate who represents the dir
tiest jH)!itics of the dirtiest oliticalst:ite
in the union.
Of" Mr. Hayes, Mr. Godwin would say
nothing, for the same reason that some
one gave lor not fighting a duel with
with John Randolph : " That there was
not enough of him to shoot." He was
an excellent secimen of mediocrity, and,
in reading his biography, the speaker, be
tween fits of sleepiness, could not help
thinking the biography wa a lame at
tempt to canonize a nobody.
He next addressed himself to thetjues
tion of whether the democratic party
would do letter than the republicans had
done. He said that failing a third party
there wasonly oneorganinzed force which
could In? relied upon for reform, unless it
was proposed to give the republicans
eternal !eae and unlimited power, and
that wa the democratic party. Mr.
Greeley and the Tribune and all liU rals
advocated thedemocraticcause four years
ago, ami were willing to trust it with
i lower. The democratic party ha not
deteriorated since. It has m proved. It
redeemed itself absolutely at St. Loui.
The democratic party have received the
Adamses and the Curtins and the 15art
lettes and hundreds of others of the best
heads and hearts of the other camp, an 1
will recover its pristine vigor and eclipse .'
its partisan brilliancy.

represent it. The records show that
Main, Logan and other prominent lead
ers of the republican party have been
the principal southern war-claim agents.
The first serious check the prosecution of
these claims ever received was from the
present democratic house. Nearly all
the claims introduced have been pre
sen ted by radical carpet-baggers from the
south and nearly all that have been allow
ed were indorsed by a republican claim

congresses. Kama City Timet.
The disavowal of Hayes of his natural
aud wroper responsibility for the actsand
words, while in his service, of his confi
dential private secretary, throw an im
portant light on the prospect of " re

should be elected to fill the seat of
Grant. Grant, in like manner, has dis
avowed his confidential private secretary,
Babcock. But liabcock disavowed "is

Last Tissue of Reimblicuu Lies
Hayes and the Ameri
The desperate and futile attempt is
made to extricate Hayes from Lis "Amer
ican Alliance" discomfiture by brazen
falsehood. The following letter was
handed to the New York Times to be
telegraphed to the country, and the coun
try is aJready in possession of the lie :
American Alliance, Executive Com
mittee Kooms, New York, Oct. 6. To the
Editor of the Xnr Yurk Timet: I wish to
correct some of the msi takes in the letter
which was published in the Wcrld, Sun, &c.,
on Wednesday, as coming from Governor
Hayes' secretary :
First Governor Hayes never was a mem
ber of the Americau Alliancev
Second lie never saw the constitution or
by-laws of the organization.
Third Xo committee of this order ever, at
anv time, called on him Rt Columbus, Phila
delphia or nny other place for any purpose.
AVe simply notified him by letter that we in
dorsed his nomination, in ans'ver to which
we received the letter from his secretary.
That letter was taken from ny oftiec, and
I was as much surprised as any one can b
to see it in print. I am at a loss to know
why those papers should find any fault with
the proceeding, as we indorsed Mr. Tilden
two years ago and he found no fault with it,
but,ou trae contrary, was very grateful for
the assistance, only he requested that it
might be kept secret, for if it should become
public he feared he might losj tht foreign
vote, lteapeetfully yours,
I.emcel 3. Tyler,
Secretary of the Amerie ui Alliance.
This is a sample of the republican
methods of conducting the canvass. The
above is a forgery to begin with, and a
tissue of lies in "the second place. The
letter is dated Oct. 0, 187f, and purports
to be signed, in New York, by Lemuel
S. Tyler. But Iemuel S. Tyler was in
Germany on that day, and has been
abroad since the 29tt day of
July last. He could have writ
ten no letter in New York on
the sixth instant when three thousand
miles away. The letter being a forgery,
a fact of which we are just now assured
by an officer of the "American Alliance"
in Ohio, is, of course, mads up of lies,
the admission of the genuineness of the
title of the private secretary of Governor
Hayes being the one redeeming feature
of the political trick and falsehood. It i
is charged, for example, in this forged j
letter, that the "American Alliance" in- i
dorsed Air. iilden for governor two years
ago, that he found no fault with it, that
he was very grateful, and requested that
it be kept secret, for if it should be made
public he feared it might lose the foreign
vote. Thin is an important admisssion.
The truth has hit. It is confessed by
even the republican liars that Hayes
ought to lose the entire naturalized vote.
It is attempted to charge a like offense
upon Mr. Tilden. We" have before us
the authentic paper giving the date of
the organization of the American Alli
ance, signed by Lemuel S. Tyler, chief
secretary. It begins as follows :
Amf.iiiCax Alliance, National Exf.cv

of last May, and its doctrines was first
formally promulgated on the Sth of last

need be said about that forged letter of

speak at any length on the subject of
blindness. His speech was marked by
its cheerfulness and the entire absence
of anything sentimental.. He was
listened to with breathless interest,
when, drawing upon his own cperi
enee, he .said that the ideal of one who
is blind would be to lead tlie same life
as they might have hoped to live if they
were not so afflicted. Persons, he said,
sometimes imigined that it was hardly
polite, or might be even cruel, to de
scribe before the blind beautiful scenes
and attractive objects, lest they should
make them feel too deeply a sense of
their deprivation. But this is a total
mistake. The best servico that can be
done is to treat them and speak to them
without regard to their aftl iction. They
are continually and unconsciously culti
vating the power of seeing things viv
idly through the eyes of ot hers. It was
within his own experience that thing3
which had been decscrilted to him had
afterward become so real that he could
hardly ersuade himself that he had not
seen them leforc he ost his sight. He
dwelt most impressively on the new hope
that would light up the hearts of the
blind as it more and more became kHown
that an American had came here to
teach the English how such might be
taught the means of helping themselves
and rescuing their lives from fruitless
ness. He said he had heard that in
America twenty-five jer cent, of the
blind were able to do something for
themselves a fact startling; enough to a
community which had never till lately
imagined the possibility of such a thing,
unless in very exceptionable eases. ,You
may imagine the great etlect produced
bv this address from a man in Prof.
Faweett's situation. He stood as a high
type ot what a blind man may accom
plish under favorable circumstances.
The story of his blindness has been often
told. He has just graduated at Cam
bridge with high honors, ;ind was out
shooting with his lather. His father's
gun went off by accident, and in each of
his son's eyes entered one shot. The
father almost died ol grief, but the son
was cheerful, and assured his father that
blindness should make no difference in
the parliamentary ami scholastic career
to which they had both looked forward.
The youth not only fulfilled this promise
to his father, but it seems very probable
that his efforts were so stimulated by the
circumstances that he has achieved more
than he would have done had the accident
never occurred. It has alwaps been a
characteristic of Prof. Fawcett that he is
invariably cheerful and happy.

FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.
From the American Berkbhire Record
we take the following in regard to the
treatment of pigs for weeding purposes:
In warm weather let them run in a grass
pasture if to be had. In cold or stormy
weather, provide a yard with dry soil and
southern exposure, with comfortable
pens or sheds, well littered, under which
they can retire at will. Cold night air
is pernicious to young pigs, and is liable
to give them swollen throats, which
sometimes proves fatal. Those of neaily
the same age should be kept together,
and not so many as to endanger any
being overlaid and smothered. When
kept in pens or yards, supply them with
decayed chunks of wood, charcoal, etc.
In the treatment of pigs-selected for fat
tening, careful experiments have proven
that time is economized, and that pork
can be more cheaply produced by pushing
pigs forward as rapidly as possible from
the time of their birth to that of their
slaughter, giving them regularly, at least
thrice a day, all the most suitable food
for this purpose which they will eat up
clean and digest. The last three weeks
or so finish off with Indian meal pudding,
or whole corn, with pure fresh water to
drink. Old corn, or well ripened and
dry of this season's growth, is best. This
makes the sweetest and most solid" pork
of anything we have yet tried. Some
contend that roots and pumpkins have so
great a proportion of water in them, that
if fed with the whole corn or meal, they
tend to an increased appetite, kaep the
bowels in better order, and lessen the
quantity of water a lattening animal
would otherwise drink. They add, also,
that this combined feed lessens the cost
ot fattening, and makes as sweet and
solid meat as corn alone. We can not
vouch for this, method, never having fol
lowed it ; but should use the sugar-ueet,
in preference to other roots, and the
winter squa.sh in preference to pumpkins,
for they are best fitted for this purpose.
Oil tbe Harueu.
America a Stock Journal.
Have your harness repaired, if neces
sary. before a dry season sets in. Wash
it thoroughly with warm soft water and
soap, and brush out every particle of
dust before nutting on the oil. Ibis is
the important point. Better not oil at
all than to applv it on dirty leather.
The harness should be taken apart, and
the -pieces washed and oiled separately.
Rub on the oil while the leather is
softened with the water. It can be ap
plied at once if the leather is rubbed a
little with a dry cloth ; it should be soft,
but not too wet. After applying the oil,
hang up to dry for a few hours, till the
oil is absorbed. Old harness that has
been neglected, and is dry and hard had
better not be oiled ; it will do no good
the evil is already done. The libres of
the leather have lost more or less of
their tenacity, and oil will not restore it ;
in fact, by softening the .'eather it only
weakens it, just as a wet sheet ot paper
will tear more easily than a dry one
Oil does not add to the strength of
leather ; it merely softens it and keeps it
from cracking ; it is a preventive of de
cay, not a restorer. Harness are now so
high that it is more than ever important
to take care of them. Never let them
suffer for want of oil ; keep in good repair
and they will last as long again.
Magnitude oi the Farmlnur Inl-r;-l
It has been stated on good authority,
aud can easily be made to appear from
the census returns of 1S70, that in the
United States there are in round num
bcrs twelve millions five hundred thou
sand bread earners. By the fruits of the
labor of these millions nations are sub
sisted. They supply food, shelter, and
raiment to the forty millions of people
who make up ourown population. Thus
it is seen that every bread earner has to
fill, on an average, a little more than
Of the whole number of these bread
earners there are not less than six mil
lions (about one half) engaged iu agri
cultural pursuits, and nearly two mil
lions in their rural trades and callings,
and making with their food dependents a
total of not less than twenty-four mil
lions of consmters.
The manufacturers, including all clashes
of operators earn bread for about two
million ot people. Ihe commercial
classes, including all that properly be
long to them, support two and a half
millions : the railroad and express com
panies about half a million more.
Yet whiie agriculture and mechanics
taken together leed ten times as many
as commerce, twenty times as manv
manufacturers, and fifty times as many
as railroad companies, yet the least

Experience at clearing lands, both in
removing stumps and large bowlders,
with dynamite, in Scotland has proved
successful. The following account is
given of a late trial in an Edinburg
A spadeful of earth was removed from
the side of a stump, and a hole driven
into the etump, with a crowbar. Into
this hole a cartridge of dynamite was
pressed by means of a wooden ramrod,
then a detonating percussion cap, with a
Blackford s fuse attached, was squeezed
into a smaller cartridge or primer ot
dynamite, and inserted into the hole in
the trunk in contact with the charge.
The hole was filled up with loose cartR,
about a foot length ot the fuse being left
bare. A match was next applied to the
fuse, and sufficient time was taken for
the powder to reach the percussion cap
to allow th operatives to retire to a
safe distance. When the explosion oc
curred the trunk was literally blown
out of the ground, some of the fragments
weighing nearly twenty pounds, being
thrown to a distance of over a hundred
yards. The destruction of the stump
was complete. In breaking up big
bowlder stones, the dynamite was simply
placed on top of the stone, covered with
wet hand, and fixed with the fuse in the
ordinary way. The result was the re
duction of the bowlders to fragments the
size of a walnut. It wus effectually
proved by the experiments that land can
be speedily cleared of formidable obstruc
tions to good cultivation by the use of
dynamite, and the committee of the
society who watched the operations ex
pressed themselves as highly satisfied
with the results.

Room for More Sheep.
Last year we paid foreign countries
fifty millions of dollars for wooleu goods
and eleven million dollars for unmanu
factured goods. When we have in the
country twenty millions more sheep
than we now have, we shall only pro
duce what wool we use ; and yet there is
no country on earth where it would seem
sheep could be raised so profitably as m
the United States. But we are coming
every year nearer to supplying our own
markets with the wool they demand. Ju
1875 the wool clip of the country was
nearly 200,000,000 pounds, while in 1860
it was ouly 75,000,000 pounds.
Ireful Suggestions. There are
very many articles with which every
housekeeper is lamiliar that can be made
helpful in many ways, and some that
can lighten labor wonderfully, if their
modest excellencies were only better
understood ; and none can be used for so
many purposes, with great success and
entire safety, as ammonia. Most of our
housekeepers think of it as only to be
used in "smelling botiles," as our grand
mothers used to call them, for faintness
and headache. But let us enumerate
some f the ways in which, if pronerlv
applied, it can make many kinds of labor
easy, over which now we groan and are

you have three quarts of one of the most
useful compounds to be found.
To remove grease spots. Put half a
teaspoonful of the ammonia to a half a
table spoonful of alcohol ; wet a bit of
wooleu cloth or sponge in it, and rub and
soak the spot with it, and the grease, if
freshly dropped, will disappear. If the
spot is of long standing it may require
several applications. In voolen or cot
ton the spot maybe rubbed when. the
liquid is appliedaud also in black silk,
though not hard. But with light, or
colored silk, wet the spot with the cloth
or sponge with which the ammonia is
put on, patting it lightly. Rubbing
silk, particularly colored silk, is apt to
leave a whitish spot almost as dis
agreeable as the grease spot.
For pants, coat-collars and woolens
nothing cleanses so quickly or so
thoroughly. For grease spots on carpets
it is unequaled. It will not injure the
most delicate colors. It is well to rinse
off with a little clear alcohsl.
For ink spots, on marble, wood, or
paper, apply the ammonia clear, just
wetting the spot repeatedly till the ink

Hair-brushes. A fewdropsof ammonia
put into a little water will clean a hair
brush bette than anything else, and does
the brush no harm. If very dirty rub a
little soap on the brush. After cleans
ing, viDse in clear water and hang the
brush up by the window to dry." Do
not let the bristles rest on any hard sub
stance while wet. It is better to tie a
string round the handle and hang up.
Ink spots on the 'fingers may be in
stantly removed by a little ammonia.
Rinse the hands after washing, in clear
Silka. A little ammonia in a few
spoonfuls of alcohol is excellent to
songe silk dresses that have grown
"shiny" or rusty, as well as to take out
spots. A silk particularly a black be
comes almost like uew when so sponged.
For cleaning jewelry there is uothing
better than ammonia and water. If
very dull or dirty, rub a little soap on a
soft brush and brush them in this wash,
rinse in cold water, dry first in an old
silk handkerchief, and" then rub with
buck or chamois skin. Their freshness
and brilliancy when thus cleaned can
not be surpassed by any compound used
For Washing Silver. Put a half a
teaspoonful into the suds in which silver
is washed; have the water hot; wash
quickly, using a small brush, rinse in
hot water, and dry with a clean linen
towel ; then rub very dry with a chamois
fkin. Washed in this manner, silver
becomes very brilliant, and requires no
polishing with any of the powders or
whiting usually employed, and the
silver does not wear out.
I. lass. rut halt a teaspoonful into
clear water to wash tumblers or glass of
any kind, rinse and dry well, and they
will be beautifully clear.
For washing windows, looking-glasses,
etc., a little ammonia in the water saves
much latior, aside from giving a better
p dish than any thing else and for gene
ral house-cleaning it removes dirt, smoke
and grease most effectually.
Spots oil towels and hosiery will dis
appear with little trouble if a little
ammonia is put into enough water to
soak the articles aud they are left in it
an hour or two before washing; and if a
cupful is put int the water in which
white clothes are soaked the night before
washing, the ease with which the articles
can be washed, and their great white
ness and clearness when dried, will lie
very gratityiiig. Remembering the small
sum paid for three quarts of ammonia of
common strength, one can easily see that
no bleaching preparation can lie more
Dish-Towels and Dish -Cloths. No
articles in kitchen use are so likely to le

Care of Looting Glasses.
Perhaps some readers have wondered
whv lookintr-glasses sometimes get so dull
and dim that no washing or rubbing will
make them clear. Ihe dimness is caused
by heat. A looking-glass or mirror, sub-
Cted to ine sunjmne several uours a
day, or to fhe hot air from a furnace,
register or stove, or to the heat ot a gas-
iglit or kerosene lamp, win soon become
ruined. At first some portion of the
glass looks dim and misty, then more
cloudy, and, finally, spotted or speckled
with black ; for the heat has caused the
coating ot quicksilver to expand and
loosen its hold upon the back of the
glass, till, after a time, particles fall
entirely away, and the glass, once leau-
ful bvlair reflections, is rendered un
sightly aud unattractive forever.
