Would the supply of men of the Curtis stamp were not so limited—men who are scholars without being pedants, gentlemen without being lops, orators without being diffuse and tiresome. Curtis “touches noth ing which he does not adorn.” As author, editor, lyceuno lecturer and legislator he is equally brilliaut aud successful. Delivering agricultural addresses would seem to he some what outside of his special lines of effort, but his remarks before the Franklin County (Mass.) Agricultural Society, last week.prove that he can bring the same grac»s ot style and vigor of thought to performances of that sort as to his inimitable “Easy Cliair” essavs iu Harper’s Monthly. We cannot forbear to lay helore our readers the concluding por imu ui iuul auure-s, in wnicD air. Curtis describes with admirable piecision the causes which have kept the farmer in subservience to aristocracies in other years, and in other lands, aud which still threaten his inde pendence even in America: But beneath all other reasons of the his torical condition ol the farmer is the funda mental reason, and that is the leudal or ar istocratic principle, which has always pre vailed in various torms in every country, and which oppresses the larmer most of ail. It is a theory that God made a little ot his human clay into porcelain vases to hold the dizzy wineot exclusive power, but the most of it into common crockery lor base uses; a theo ry that the many are made for the lew, or as Voltaire defined it in government, ‘ It is the art of making two-thirds of a nation pay all it possibly can pay for the benefit of the other third.” This system is the fourfold enemy of the farmer. First, it distributes all.the land to a few proprietors. Second, lo those tew pro prietors it gives exclusive political power. Third, it degrades labor by making the labor er wholly dependent upon those few; and fourth it fosters their ignorance that they may be willing slaves, in a word, the aris tocratic system gives political power to the land and (he land to a lew. The popular system divides the land and derives political power from m inhood. What is the result of this aristocratic system upon the general wel fare, and especially upon the larmer? Look at England. The united kingdom is com posed ol 78,000,000 acres of laud, and lias nearly 30,000,000 of inhabitants. Thirty thousand persons own all the land, and the English school system is the worst of any civilized country. What follows? Air. Olsc stead, in his most valuable and delightful hook, “l'be Walks and Talks of au American Farmer iu England,” says: “I did not see in Ireland or in Germany, or‘in France, nor did I ever see among our negroes or Indians, or among the Chinese or Malays, men whose tastes were such mere instincts and whose mode of lite was so low, so like domestic an imals altogether—as these farm laborers." He spoke ol them to an intelligent radical, who replied, vVe are not used to regard that class in forming a judgment ol national character, and yet it is probably the largrst class iu England.” The wisest English statesmen agree that the root ol the Irish difficulty is the land ten ure. They will presently see that it is the root of the English difficulty, and that Eng land is in constant danger so long as 30,000 proprietors own the soil of the country. They will soon question the right of the Marquis of Biedalbane to turn sheep walks into game preserves ;and unless some method ol increas ing the ownership of land is adopted, perhaps by redistributing laxaiion so that the land w ill be sold t > escape l he heavy burden, the great proprietorships will be abolished iu England, as they wore in France, by civil con vulsion. Wherever the agricultural laborer does not own the land and has no share in political power, ‘.here he anil he an ignorant and de graded man; and the instinct ve attempt of an aristocracy to keep him in that position will sooner or later involve any country in the most relentless war,—lor if the gov ernment is a popular government, the aristocracy will aim to subvert it or to chauge its nature. The political history the United States for a generation illustrates this truth. Our southern system of society aud labor was au aristocracy which controlled the government by the power derived from lour millions of agricultural laborers deprived of every right, and by its alliance with ignor ance and avarice elsewhere. Seeing the alarming tendency ot a nation ol small pro prietors and of tree schools to oppose aristo catic influence in every peaceml and legal way, it steadily aimed to change the charac ter of the government by nationalizing its spstem ot slavery. Ii pursued this purpose with relentless energy, aud with apparent ap palling success. In 1800, Alexander H. Ste phens" retired from Congress because he was sure the supreme court would uphold the ansmcwiMi; binuu. xu iiiiKjauiuariw Webster, tbe sou of a New England farmer, bowed bis great bead to the cap of Ges ler. and asked New England to conquer its prejudices in lavor of liberty. In New York diaries O’C'onor, a son of the Ireland which the same aristocratic spirit had ruined, insis ted before, the highest court that slaves should be held m the blalc. It Urey cuum ne uma tliej could lie sold, and thus the slave trade he restored to the banks ot the GeDnessee and the valley ot the Mohawk Emboldened by apparent success, tbe aris tocratic power laid its hand upon Kansas, the heart and the garden of tbe continent.— Then at last the iaruiers saw themselves lace to lace with their old, remorseless enemy who bad puisued them in every country and in every age. If slavery could be planted in Kausas, tbe Yankee boy who had gone there lor more elbow room—tor richer fields and a better chance for lnmself and his children, would find the field slave who could be kept for less than a hundred dollars a year', in brutish ignorance, liis immediate rival. The snatch at Kansas was the old policy of the aristocracy, everywhere and always, to per petuate ignorance and degrade labor. Tbe response was the tremendous political cam paign 01 1800, when the battle cry ot the lar mers ra»g from sea to sea, “ tree land, free speech, free schools, tree men,” and Abraham Lincoln, the representative of a working people against a proprietary aristocracy, was elected president. But aristocracy is brave,—and it did not falter. Foiled at the polls it drew its sword to overthrow a government whose nature it couid not chauge. Still the air thrills with the tremendous story. The larmers whose ancestors in tbe revolution had lettthe plow in the furrow to inarch to Bunker Hill, die not delay. Over all these sunny hilis, through all these silent valleys, rolled th« loud drum beat, and the bugle rang. Thou sands and huudieds of thousands of farmer boys marched away. Over all these silent valleys, are the darkened homes and the broken hearts to which thousands of the far mer boys returned no more. Gentlemen, if when Lee surrendered to Grant under the Appomatox apple tree, the spirit-oi aristocracy had also surrendered its purpose m this country, we should to-day be the happiest of nations. But to renounce , s purpose would be to change its nature, Le leal does not convert. A cause which lus been a tradition and a passion, nben it is a lost cause becomes a religion. It awaits its opportunity. Fu.ied at one point, it tries an other. King diaries the First tried to assert the royal prerogative by torcc. He lost Ms head. But his cause survived, for it was in 1, uuian nature, and more than a century af terward King George the Third tried to win it by corruption. So with the aristocratic •pint and system in this country. When Lee surrendered Wall street sang Old Hundred and thought the mdlenium at hand. But no man who remembered history, which is merely human nature displayed, shared that sweet illitsion. For the maxim that eternal vigilance is tbe price of liberty springs from the universal experience that the enemy of liberty is as crafty as it is cruel and will rt«^u rt. . .,orm “ teadi|y and rapidly as ths devil that tempted St. Anthony. «ndi a fabled, riTer in Greece which WI..N, ^ r ist again undiminisbed and flowed on L belore. Mva* K f,'stocr“y vanished upon the battle field,—but it reappears in the political arena. 11 believes that the country, so weary so oppressed with debt, so strained bv long and severe exertion, so vexed by tiie delay ot pacification, is like an army fatigued alter its victory, sleepiug upon the field, and fatally exposed to another cunning assault The ogre was yesterday a tiger—to-day he isafox, —but be is always an ogre. The Anti-Ameri can, inhuman spirit of caste and aristocracy in this country yesterday shouted, “Down with the Union in thebioodof its defenders.” lo day it shouts, “Up with tbe constitution as we understand it.’’ But it is still tbe same old leudal barbarism defying democratic civi lization. Gentlemen, this spirit is your peculiar ene my. It is the foe that has always oppressed and deg. aded the farmer. It is the explana tion ol the melancholy fact recorded by the latest historian of England that in that coun try “the primitive husbandman has long since merged into the laboring peasantry,” and that “the yeoman or small proprietor has almost wholly disappeared.” The total overthrow of this spirit in this country is essential to its peaceful aud prosperous progress. How pow ertul it U, tl.o tat- rebellion revealed. How crally it is, its present appeal to tbe ballot *ox shows! It is a vast, organized skillful influence, intrenched in the very weakness and passious of human nature, throwing its whole force in an agricultural country in fa vor of ignorance and tbe degradation of la bor. Ten years ago when its iron haDd was tee ling among the New England hills for fu gitive slaves, it blighted the farms and dis graced the farmer. You spumed that sp rit, but it is not destroyed. You leel its power to dav m every remotest country of New Kng gland. You hear its voice in every word that asks you to swindle the public creditor and to reluse to pay th - honest cost ot tbe war. Y'ou bear its haughty treason to humanity and to national peace in tbe demand ibat tbe Southern laborer be thrust again uuder its feet and submitted to its pleasure. Flashing its rebellious sword in our eyes it promises peace; and throttling the poor man, it prates ot Iraternity. Aristocracy played tor this eontnient and it lias not abandoned the came. Does onr experience teach us noth ing? I>o you suppose this spirit could pre vail and you not suffer? C«n labor in half the land be disgraced and the laborer inibrut ed, and labor and the laborer everywhere not be degraded? Do we know tbat the princi ple ol New Ensland and the mighty North west has won in the held ? The hostile spir it is waiting to see. It believes that we do not understand our owu victory or that we are alraid ot it. Had it won. Kooert Toombs would to day tie calling the roll of bis slaves upon Bunker Hill. But since we have con quered let us call the roil of ircem^n upon Hubert Toombs plantation. Let us have peace by securing and organizing the princi ple of lair play tor all men which has won the victory. A (sw Tralh* frees New Ur Irmas. Niw Orleans, Sept. 26.1868. To the Editor 0/ the /‘reit : 'Tis true that 12,500 Republicans were out in procession Saturday night Sept. 12, and that 500 of them were whites. 'Tis true, that said procession was orderly and mule as good appearance as did whits proces sions on similar occasions, in times of Tyler or Cass, and that the Democrats threw every obstacle in the way, to prevent its becoming a success. 'Tis true, that the the Democratic Rebels armed themselves, hoping to excite a riot, and that they threatened to murder Union white men first, and were only restrained by the presence of the military. 'Tis true, that Rebel women closed their doors and darkened their houses in contempt of a Union procession. 'Tis true, they teach their children to hate Northern people, and the old Flag. Tis true, the New Orleans Democratic pa pers systematically abuse Union men, but al ways laud Rebels, dead or alive, without any regard to truth. Tis true, thatiu this city, and the South gen erally, Rebel and Democrat are synonymous terms and that every day makes more and more apparen tthe necessity of the election of U. S. Grant for our next President. Tis true, that Union men are proscribed and marked here, all patronage is withheld from them, are branded as scallawags, and earpet baggers. 'Tis true, that the Rebels are as intolerant as in 1860-61, and the tree expression of opin ion is equally as dangerous. Tis true, they have learned nothing by the war, aud hope by the aid of Northern Demo crats to put such traitors as Howsll and Slidell again into Congress. Mameds.
