IN Asimal8. When vour animal
has a fever all stimulating articles are to be
avoided. Bleeding to produce the circula
tion; purging lor removing irritating sub
stances from the bowels ; cooling drinks to
to allay thirst and supply diseased secre
tions; rest and quiet to tone down the sys
tem, are what common sense would seem to
dictate, and what nature would seem to re
quire. This is safer than to cram the ani
mal with a multiplicity of cures, without
regard to anything except the fact that
something is the matter. We trust farmers
and owners of animals will heed the admo
nition here given, f ... ........
Rheumatism in Cows. The treatment or
rheumatism should consist in. placing the
animal in a moderately warm place, and
giving diet of a genert-us character. In ca
ses where the pain is severe the tincture of
aconite in twenty drop doses may be given
with advantage. Friction to the joints will
be found beneficial ; and, where much swel
ling exists, the liniment of ammoni may be
rubbed in daily. Cooling applications do
not seem to suit this complaint. The enlarge
ments in the joints sometimes become chron
ic, and should then be treated with applica
tions of the tincture of idoine.- '
Red Water in Sheep. After providing
the animals with comfortable quarters bleed
freely and administer the following: Take
Epsom salts, one ounce ; linseed oil, one
ounce; gentian, one drachm; ginger, one
scruple; warm wartcr two ounces." For a
lamb give half this amount, but to a full
grown sheep the entire quantity. Foment
the abdomen with warm wartcr a Iamb, in
fact, may be placed altogether in a warm
bath. In cases of recovery a change of food
must be afforded, and a short, sweet pasture
shonld be preferred. i
Itch is Horses. A correspondent in
the Southern Cutlicator writes: "I bud a
horse affected last spring with the itch. I
bled him freely, and then gave him a tea
spoonful, every other nay, of a mixture of
equal portions of sulphur and antimony. At
the end of a week the sores had disappeared,
and in a short time the horse was covered
with a fine coat of new hair."
Salt and Asnis for Horses Those
keeping horses should, twice a week, throw
in a handful of salt and ashes. Mix them
by putting in three parts of salt to one of
ashes. Horses relish this, and it will keep
their hair short nnd fine. , It will prevent
bots, colic, etc. A little ground sulphur
mixed with salt and ashes, and given ounce
iu two or three weeks, is also beneficial. AU
domestic animals will be thus benefitted.
Interfering is Horses. To prevent
interfering in a horse who is turned out iu
the front feet, the shoe should be applied to
fit closely on the inside, and the nails, ap
plied around the toe and to thcoutsidc. In
some instances a small piece of leather pla
ced betwixt the sole and the shoe, and al
lowed to project outwards, has a very good
effect in preventing interfering.
Molasses for Sore Teats on Cows.
Some one says: Keep a cup of molasses
at the barn in the season of the year when
it is needed, and apply it to the teats occa
sionally. It is a sure preventive as well as
Now is the time to save seed and nuts to
plant next spring. The black walnut is
one of the most valuable trees to plant.
Gather the nuts and lay them in a pile,
covered with leaves, corn-buts, or any such
thing, and let them freeze and thaw till
spring, and plant- Chestnuts should be
saved in clean sand, a little moist, in a box,
and buried in the surface of the ground,
where they will freeze.
We at the West do not like the yellow
locust; the borers or worms cat the trees
and destroy them. But the best of all for
est trees to plant is the European lurch. It
is the principal tree planted in Europe for
timber ; it is the most lasting for posts : it
is used for ship timber, wagons and carts,
hay racks, ladders, and the many such uses
constantly wantccfon the farm, besides rail
road ties, telegraph poles, 4c.
Timber should be planted thickly togeth
er, that it may grow tall and straight ; then
thin out for poles as the trees grow. Our
Western farmers are beginning to set the
European larch. They are mostly impor
ted "from the old country when one and two
years old. But we should be very careful
who imports them; it is simply a matter of
life and death with them. My ncighlmr

none or them grew. 1 set 3j,01M) obtained
through the right importers,: and they all
grew. Persons accustomed to handling
nursery stock arc the right ones to apply to.
The wood and root of the larch, like the
evergreens, contains a resiny substance,
which, if once dried in the least, is fatal to
the root Apply to some good nursery
man who deals in evergreens, and apply now
this fall, and you will be likely to get them
in the spring. The larch starts its growth
very early in the spring, and it must be set
out early. Germantoicn Telegraph.
Does Deep Plowing Pay !
It seems that there are intelligent practi
cal agriculturists who still have their doubts.
A year or so ago, David Pettit of New Jer
sey, wrote a letter to the American Institute
Farmer's Club. New York, the professed
object of which was "to demonstrate thet
deep plowing and sub-soiling are of doubt
ful utility." In the discussion which fol
lowed the reading of this letter, stories were
told of Southern farmers who had ruined
their lands by deep plowing. One of these
cases, or n similar one, is thus narrated by a
correspondent of the tSoutliern Culthator :
"Mr. Furse, of Barnwell County, S.C., had
a field of good sandy land on which his
overseer undertook to make a crop. He put
his plows in, breaking as deep as possible.
A splendid crop was the result, but it is
S lid that Furse's land was entirely ruined
The overseer had killed the hen that laid
the golden egg, and bartered his land for a
single crop. That man could not again get
employment anywhere in that neighlxir
hood. The same witcr presents another case
of ruinous deep plowing as follows:
'Mr. A. S. Jones bad a field of fine oak
and hickory land, close soil, with clay sub
soil, near llcrschman's Lake, on the Savan
nab River. He, being a gentleman of exten
sive information and ample fortune, resolv
ed . to introduce the innovation of deep
plowing with sub-soiling. He broke up
his land, with the most improved sul-snilcr,
to the depth of, perhaps, ten or twelve inch
es. There came on a wet spell of long du
ration ; the ground was level ; the rain
beat, and the wateis saturated it. Planting
time came on, his neighbors were laying off
and planting all around him, but uevcr
could that field be traversed again, during
that spring, by horse or ox. It bogged out
ot sight ! It was not planted at all, and tall
saplings now sing their old-field symphonies
above the luckless spot." -
Green House and Window Plants.
Give air whenever the temperature will
allow, and in green-bouses nse lire heat when
absolutely necessary. Plants that are only
to be kept Irom fiost. without regard to
bloom, may have the house as cool as 40, or
36 degrees, but flowering plants require a
temperature of 00 degrees.

thk cloak of the period ; '"
is the coat to all intents and purposes.' The
most fashionable styles, as developed by the
approach of the colder season, is a.stated ;
in a previous letter, the popular Sedingote,
or riding coat, handsomely cut in the fig
ure, and ornamented with reten broad cuffs
and large buttons. : i '; . -i.-,;
..; The coat, when made in velvet, is cut with
side paniere instead of lappels, and richly
trimmed with black lace at tho waist and
across the shoulders, terminating in a cas
cade, or series of loops or bows, in the ; cen- ,
ter of the back. The skirt is lined with
white satin, and the garment when, com
plete is called a Marquut coat
Another very handsome and more useful
velvet cloak is" made almost exactly like
gentleman's dress coat, only lappels arc
rather narrow, and are .turned back in r&
Ten, over a' round paniered upper skirt
This cloak has the advantage : that the skirt
and coat are separate from each other, and
can be worn together or separate.
The cardinal shape is revised in some of
the handsomest cloaks, with the addition
of a broad, loose flap at the back, trimmed
with fabulous lace, which also forms a bor
der to the bottom of the garment.
Quite a change has been effected this
season by the use of heavy ribbed silk upon
clotb and velvet cloaks, as trimmings. The
effect is exceedingly good ; infinitely better
than flimsey fringe and coarse gimp npon
such heavy and costly materials. Seeert
and cuffs, both of cloth and velvet cloaks
are faced with silk, and these facings arc
edged with a narrow double quilling of the
same: this constitutes all the trimming
with the exception of buttons.
The "mantle" cloak can be obtained in
various materials velvet, cloth and Scotch
plaid, but is generally made to complete
suits, and in colder weather require a wrap
of some kind over it, unless- made of very,
thick material. It is of the round mantle
shape, drawn at the back with a belt and
sash bow, and forms sleeves which are some
thing cut up and trimmed so as to form a
model, something like an Hungarian.
For wrap-", besides the water-proof, which
are more comfortable and protective than
ever before, there are Scotch circulars, trim
med with fringe, containing the colors of
the plaid and Holland plaids or scarf, ar
ranged as a hood at the back, and generally
with a corner thrown over the left shr.uldcr.
Opera sacks and loose or neglige style gen
erally, are made of soft white velvet plush
or heavy clesh, or of white Astrakhan fur,
heavily fringed with goats hair; the latter
are worn with muff to match, and arc very
fashionable for matinees, day receptions,
concert and other dressy, but not "full dress"
For opera wear tliere is very pretty new
Russian Ittclielil; made in white velvet clesh,

NEW WINTER KI RS. -
The popular styles this season, apart from
mink, w hich always leads,, arc black or
white Astrachan. The Astiachan. fringed
with goal's hair, with muff to match, con
stitute the most useful and economical set
of furs which have lieen seen for a longtime,
because with such a set no other cloak is
The white Astrachan clonks, as I have re
marked before, are fashionable for matinee
and concert purposes. The black Astrach
an forms a most distinguished streetcar
iiient, but should always be worn with a
muff to match. There are also collars bor
dered with a deep fringe, which, with the
muff, constitutes a handsome and inexpen
sive set for those who dont want a cloak.
An ordinary cloak, with muft, costs fifty
dollars; a collar, with, muff, in black or
white Astrachan, cost fifteen or twenty dollars.-
' . "
There are. however, complete sets this
season finer than any ever displayed before,
the surface of which has the appearance of .
satin moire. At first sight one would think
that the fur had been pressed by art and
maebinety into these beautiful designs; but,
in reality, it is the natural appearance of
a very young or still-born animal, and the
garments are,' therefore, considered very
choice and very rare.
Mink is reduced in price from former sea
sons, and a very good set am now be ob
tained at from forty to fifty dollars.
Ermine is, as usual, regarded as the dress
fur. Children's sets are composed cither of
ermine, chinchilla or squirrel fur. Chin
chilla, is the softest nnd prettiest for very
little girls. The sets consist of straight col
lar and pocket muff, ornamented with the
head of the animal. '
There are also sets of Astrachan, consist
ing ot cape, collar and muff, the price of
which is twelve dollars.
Rich chenille fringes and soft, light white
feather fringes are used for trimming even
ing and reception dresses by ladies who are
tired of lace and satin decorations; white
feather fringe over white satin mauve silk
or blue "glacier" satin.
White Alpaca may be trimmed with rich
white chenille fringe and white 'moss" (a
sort of silvery velvet plush) heading.
Black fans with over-tips and gold mount
ings are the latest Parisian styles.
Very recent French novelties consist of
portmonnaies, bracelets, chatllaines, and
even earrings, ornamented with a mcdalion
into which a minute watch, a perfect time
keeper, is introduced.
With black silk toilettes, or red silk trim
med with black lace, gold jewelry, is worn
of a deep color which is called the Abbys
siniangold. The designs are hoops and
rings, or beads or horseshoes, heavily fring

Little scarlet sailor jackets are the rage
now among young ladies.
Hats are more fashionable for street wear
than bonnets. The high crowned Tyrolean
hats arc the favorite style, in light grey or
black felt or black straw bound with velvet
and trimmed with a bread ribbed ribbon, a
plume of short feathers, which curls over
the front, and an immense jet or . steel
It is fashionable to attach a long gauze
veil of the color to black and grey felt hats,
at the bucks, and wear passed around the
neck and put through in a knot on one side.
An Old Mormon City in Missouri.
Last week we visited the ruins of the an
cient city of the Latter Day Saints. : About
thirty years ago the Mormons took forcible
possession of a tract of laud about two miles
square, situated in the bluffs of Grand river,
in Davies county Missouri, intending to
erect temples of worship, etc. - They laid
outthec;ty of Diamond, and in a short
time had congregated several hundred devo
tees. They subsisted by depredations com
mitted upon the people of the adjacent
omntry. Froni the settlers who were oo-cx-istcnt
with them wc learn that the Mormons
took possession of the dwellings located
within their chosen spot of earth, and burn
ed the dwellings of those in immediate
proximity to them. . Thty pretended that
through revelations made to them, they
knew that to be the veritable Garden ot
Eden. That hens reposed the remains of
Adam. There are indeed some striking pe
culiarities in this siiot of irround, one of
the chief products of which is an endless
amount of crab apples, which to them, per
haps, answer to the " forbidden fruit;" But
of the city nothing but ruins remain. Their
cemetery is now a cornfield. . .
The Dead Letter System.
An evidence of the care used in ascertain
ing the owner and returning to them the

t "The Train Has Arriv." ,f, . -,,
' To-day's mail (Nov. 6) has brought me
sundry .. copies of . the- very labored and
idiosyncratic address of President Smith, of
the North Carolina Railroad, to the stock
holders, in "which he attempts' so wde-
fatigably to throw dust into their eyes .and
make it appear that ., the efforts to; ."lease"
the road was a natural and proper affair.
fa not the most remote purpose of mine to
take issue with the President' on the con
tents of his latest literary progeny, but as
he has seen fit to give me more than my
share of his appreciative attentions it, may
be proper to set myself right on the points'
where assailed. The President wishes to
throw the cause' ol my absence from that
now known to have been important meeting
on myself. . I knew it was tho regular bi
monthly meeting and was notified. ,' '
1. I was aware that the by-laws provided
for this meeting, but I also knew the by-laws
were not above the power the President
claimed to vary (hem. ami postpone regular
meetings. , , . . ,
2. Since I have been a Director in every
case ot a regular meeting I have been noti
fied and expected such notice this time, and
uot receiving it naturally supposed that by
authority there was another postponement.
3. I did receive a notice several days after
the appearance of the editorials in the
Standard and Sentinel referring to -my
absence. I wish to say here that Mr. Stagg,
Secretary of the company, I am satisfied,did
his duty in the matter, and it never occurred
to me that he was to blame for my not :get '
ting the notice. I do not pretend to account
for the fact that it took this notice about
twenty days to reach me this time, and in
this case only, and when it did come it had
no mark of being niisscnt or remailtd.
1. The President further states that I ran
opposed to the lease of the Road, but would
favor its sale. . ...
I have opposed the alienation of the road
under any form, believing it to be a Valua
ble property which could not - be let or sold
to other parties without damage to the State,
and opposed its sale in the General Assem
bly last winter. ' . .
' 2. But if the State and the stockholders
cannot keep it if it mtiat be parted with,
nolens volens, then I am in favor of amZe a
fair public sale after due notice, has been
given. I am opposed to peddling so great
State interest out in this small necret man
ner. If the State has no one man who can
manage the road successfully, then let her
get all she can in a sale open to all parties.
If this miserable lease is perpetrated on the
people, it will be a matter of regret with me
that I did oppose its sale Inst session of the 1
General Assembly. .
3. I could be no party to this transaction
liecause as a Director on the part of
the State I was not appointed 1 to
Itane it. The State nor the stockholders in :
their annual meeting never . intimated a
wish to sell or lease it, and would it not be
arrogance in mc, unmoved and unsolicited,
to alienate so great a property without
evin eondet ending In consult them or let
them know of such intention. To mc jtbis
savors of presumption if it do not liuve,
'other conceivable cause. . ' , ,

u res it is not worth while to analize them; the

cr. will l ailow myseit to spuaK ot the.

this leaxe a finger should be pointed at " a
rtng.r Lord! what is man? It was only
however lo show why I was not at' the Di
rectors meeting. Even the notice did not
say it would be an important one. Also to
say why and under what pressure only I.

ficient pains to make themselves acquainted
with the true facts of the case; and I must
here confess my ' surprise : that even in so
grave a document as the pamphlet, -which
appeals to the tribunal of public sentiment
against the Supreme Court, one of its Jus
tices should have been condemned upon a
total misapprehension of the facts. Surely
here is matter for interrogation.
But without further reference just here to
this question, I present a copy of tho pro
ceedings in the matter referred to, simply
premising that the paper was read by Mr.
Justice Settle from the Bench, and filed
with the other papers in the case with the
Superior Court Clerk of Rockingham
county, where it has alwavs bein open to
the inspection of even the most solemn of
the solemn protcstants, to alt the rjolotnonic
reviewers, and also to the gentleman, who
wields the double-barreled blunderbuss in
the Daily Sentinel.
. The following is tlie copy of the paper
alluded to above : '. m'

Thos. Hutson and '
T. W. Patterson, the Sheriff of Rocking-'
ham, having returned this n arrant, endorsed
"executed by arresting PutrickSjmpson,
Thomas Hudson ' and Zan Barham," and
havinu them before me, Thomas Settle, one
of the Justices of the Supreme Court of.
North Carolina, at W entworth, on the 2nd
day of August, A. D., 18G9, Messrs. Jno H.
Dillard, A. M. Scales, and J. I. Scales, At
torneys, &c presented themselves as Court
sel for the prisoners.. , Thereupon they were
reminded by the Court that their names ap
ppared to.be attached to a paper styled "The
selcmn Protest," ifcc, which in substance
charged that the Justices of the Supreme
Court, singly uniX en masse, bad so demeaned
themselves during thelute political struggles.
as to unfit them to hold the scales of justice,
and that the w-avi-rinij balance would shake
in their hands so- as to serve their fellow-
partizans 6x ; That this Charge applies to
the Justices when sitting en masse as a Sit
preme Court, and also to a Justice when sit
ting singly to discharge any duty imposed
;iii)o!i him by law. That they had doubtless
seen the action of the -Supremo Court
in the case ot Jj. a . Moore, . iSq , and
others, and that their answers had been ac
cepted as sufficient in that Court: and doubt
less any one ot the Justices would- regard
their answers in that Court) as sufficient . t A
entitle them to. appear before a single Jus
tice. That answers tiled before a single Jusj

respondents to appear belorc such Justice,
and coiim also He lor warded by lilui to the
Supreme Court fur, its consideration if tho
respondents so desired. ,

own contumacy." ',l ' '
It is also ..evident that' the reviewers
of. Judge Settle's conduct never troubled
themselves very much with attempting to
learn what the true ruling in this case was;
and-that the lover W civil libertY," in the
ardor of hisadmiratioh for the coy goddess,
has even surpassed them in ignorance or
carelessness, since he came to oscillate be
tween Kik'kinghum and CaSwcll counties, ns
to a choice of the locality where the events
did actually occur. , Bat love is ever blind ;
in order to .set him straight I will inform
him again . that it is Rockingham and uot
Caswell dounty1. However, if he is not' sat
isfied, he can load cine barrel of his blunder--buss
with Rockingham arid the other with
Caswell and thunder away., until he is suffi
ciently amused. ' ', , , , ".
How much comfort the 'protesting attor
neys', who have failed to answer in inthei'
parts of the State, can draw from the quoted
cases of Tillingliast Austin and Biadley,
and the opinions of Marshall and Gibson, I
do not Know, but they are heartily welcome
to it all. They will never be able to set Tar
river afire, if they stay whwe they are. And
those wnq nave answered will hud it to be
an unpleasant job for them to reconcile the
conduct of Messrs. Dillard and the Scales,
to their own; but I will not press them too
nara, since re realty does seem as true ot
the protesting lawyers as of the Romish
clergy, " that if you offend one Monk, all
the cowls will flutter as far as Rome."
