THURSDAY MORNING, OCT. », 1873 EviiRY regular attache of the Press is furnished wit l) a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat ani bote managers will confer a favor upon us by (knUanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our journal, as we have information that several “bum mers** are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas tively, a party to such fraud Wh do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name and address of the writer are in all cases indispensab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W 3 cannot undertake to return or reserve com municatiouh that are not u?eu. Unwelcome Statements. In Maine, agriculture with its sindred pur-, suits is still the leading industry of the State and upon it depends largely the welfare of the people. In the proportion that (arming is successful or otherwise, will the other indus tries and enterprises of the State be prosper ous or languish. Short crops in Maine limit the means of a large majority of our people to patronize tlie country stores and these in turn eau send but limited orders to the wholesale houses. Consequently the success ot this industry is of as much conse quence to every merchant and manufacturer whose prosperity depends upon a country trade as to the farmer himself. It is the usual, and perhaps the proper thing, to say that, as a general thing, agri culture is prosperous in Maine—that its farmers have'good crons, and as a whole are thrifty and at the close o! each year show a balauce in their lavor, either in deposits in the savings banks or in permanent farm im provements. As it is not our purpose to say pleasant things or proper things when we do not believe them to be true, we shall run the risk to say that as a general thing the out look of our farmers is not so rose-colored as our contemporaries often or always represent it—that but comparatively few are really prosperous, that many just keep along while a large number are falling to the roar each year. We should be very glad to find facts that would lead us to other conclusions but cannot. It is not our purpose to infer from the present condition of affairs that agriculture in Maiue should Ije abandoned. On the other hand, we believe that there never was a time when capital and skill used in farming would pay better in this State than at the present time. Markets were never better, the de mand never greater or surer and the means of transporfation so ready. Men of experi ence who have visited all sections of the country inform us that in no part of the Union can money be more readily realized in agricultural pursuits than in Maine. It is not our purpose to point out wherein many of our farmers fail or the causes that lead to the general unsatisfactory condition that exists. Some, however, are so evident that the ordinary observer cannot fail to note them. For instance, in many sections farm ers rely wholly upon the same crops that were cultivated a half century ago, when the conditions of the country were entirely differ ent and when there were no means to bring the cheap products of the West iuto compe titiou with the same in Maine. For general sale the Maiue farmer cannot compete with the West in the production of wheat, corn and other crops, and it is folly to attempt it. Maiue cannot be made a grain growing Sta'e, but there are many other departments in which she can favorably compete w!th the most favored sections. In good seasons, Maine apples are the best in the market and there is no reason why her farmers with the exercise of care and experience, may not realize hundreds of thousands of dollars from this single item each year ins'e id of doing so periodically. On the other haad, thousands of dollars will this year be sent out of the State to purchase apples. Nevertheless, but comparatively few are so wife awake as to avail themselves of the ad vantage of the situation; yet the traveler through any of our towns will find now and then an orchard that shows care and culture which is loaded with fruit, and (he thrifty fruit grower will tell you that with sufficient culture, good crops can be obtained every year*. Yet the State is full of orchards that produce but half a ciop of ordinary fruit that doe; not bring to the farmers of the State a quarter part of what they should realize. This year Maine sqould have a million dollars from its apple crop. Instead of this the State ! will pay out thousands for a supply for home consumption. Again, Maine pays out thousands of dollars annually for dairy products, while Vermont, which is no better situated, and has no su perior capacities, exports hundreds of thous ands of dollars worth of the same. A new start has been made in the production of cheese that promises to do wonders for our farmers. Is there any reason why this same co-operative principle may not be extended to the production of butter? The Board of Agriculture is doing a g<tod work in practically biiuging these special topics before the fanners of Maine. They, and the best farmers have demonstrated that more brains and enterprise are required, and that in no branch of industry will the exer cise of energy pay better. If farming is to be the leading employment of our people, a new and radical departure must be made. The current idea that prevails that any dul lard can be a farmer must be eradicated, and the sounder teaching that the best brain and talent will find a wider and more inviting field for operation in this department than elsewhere must be inculcated. Then the young men will not desert the farm and crowd the ranks of middle-men and non-producers. The border counties of Maine have always been more or less troubled with the paper currency of New Brunswick. Years ago when specie payments were the rule, Provin cial silver and bank notes were the prevailing money. This currency was not current at Bangor or west of there so 'that those who had payments to make at Boston or wanted money to use beyond the limits of the border towns were obliged to pay a premium for funds on a State bank or specie. At one time, the Calais Bank paid drafts in St. Stephen money and the man who wanted State bills or Boston funds bad to pay a per centage. Upon the issuing greenbacks by the United States the regular bank bills of New Brunswick were as good as gold, and soon disappeared. The bright idea, there fore, struck the directors of the St. Stephen N. B. hank to issue a lot of bills somewhat resembling greenbacks, in the form of “orders on Z. Ghipman’’ which arc promised to be redeemed in United States’ currency on pre sentation. In the border towns of Aroostook this wild cat currency has at this time nearly taken the place of greenbacks as a circulating medium, to the great inconvenience of all ; parties who have payments to make outside ■ of the immediate locality. At length so great has been the inconvenience and uncer tainty respecting the C’nipmau orders that the business men of Houlton at a recent meeting, . resolved not to take them for goods or money payments after November 1st. Of course tliis action will send to the St. Stephen Bank several thousand dollars 0f Ofaipman orders tobe redeemed In United* States currency. If “Z Chipman who is a leading merchant m St. Stephen and an officer of the bank do- 1 Clines to redeem these “shin-plasters'’ or i unab'e to do so, there is no apparent remedy* * and a loss to the holders will be the result As new batch of Chiptnan orders were about to be put in circulation to carry on the winter lumbering operations, the action of the Houlton business men is timely, for if the St. Stephen bankers are not able to redeem their notes, it is better to know it before the loss becomes more serious. Uov. Washbcbn of Wisconsin in his re cent speech, said if the President would al low him to make a suggestion respecting ap pointments to office it would be that “lie re quire members of Congress who recommend applicants tor office, to certify on honor that the person recommended was personally known to him, tl at he believed him to be thoroughly competent, a man of ability, so briety, integrity and honor, and if appointed he desired that this certificate should be made public in the community where the ap pointee resided.” _ The receipts of gold at New \ ork by the European steamers the past lew days, are so largo as to attract attention and at this time may he regarded as a most satisfactory indi cation that the balance of trade is in our fa vor. Saturday about $900,000 in bullion was received from abroad and Tuesday the Java brought $2,500,000 in gold. Great Britain must hive our wheat to feed her millions and crur cotton to supply her mills. Current Notes. The Springfield Republican says every pop ular agitation makes haste to get itself formu lated in epigrams. This “fanners’ move ment" of ours lias already struck out two or three that are pithy enough and homely enough to last. What could be neater in its way than this, which served as one of the mottoes ot a farmers’ anti-monopoly gather ing in Lexington, III., last Thursday, “None but lice stock should be watered.” - What impresses the Albany Journal most in the New York Republican platform is the absence of “mincing and meaningless phra ses” in the treatment of live issues. The Chicago Tribune rejoices because the people are beginning to think of something besides the panic. It is truly encouraging to know that the Fall styles are in and all the churches are crowded.

There is so niucU that is petty and boyish in the way students in different colleges treat each other that it is decidedly pleasant to note an instance where common sense and generous feeling bear sway.

Should the present movement for a third term for President Grant ever become im portant on jugh to demand auy notice from him, we have no doubt whatever that it will receive as positive a refusal from him as did similar movements from Washington and Jefferson.—Providence Journal. [Reported for tlie Press]. State CosiYentio» of Hie Young Mens’ Christian Associations. The first topic of the convention, “How shall we more generally interest all church members in Association work?” was opened byH.H. Burgess, by a written essay. We ought not to carlessly interfere with organized church work; opposition and hostility should not be courted; lack of interest by church members should uot interfere with our legitimate work; despise uot the gift of any Christian brother, whether time, labor, money or prayers; cordially and earnest ly invite all church members to help us; work not for name but for conversion of souls, help ing poor, teaching, etc. Several gentlemen fol lowed in an animated discussion of the sub ject. Being faithful in our churches; keeping the churches posted in regard to our work aud inviting the members to accompany us in our inissiou work, were points especially dwelt upon. The devotional exercises of the evening were conducted by Rev. John Allen, after which words of welcome to the delegates were ex pressed by Mr. C. W. Hill, Auburn, in behalf of that Association, aud Rev. G. P. Matthews in behalf of the churches, aud responded to by the President, Hon. II. H. Burgess. After singing “Rescue the Perishing,” Mr Ii. W. IlaDscom read a paper upon the topic of the evening, “What can the Associations do to guard the young against amusements of an immoral tendency?” The young must have amusements; supply them in the home; incul cate right principles; set right examples; our influence should be positive; furnish music; a social cup of tea and refreshments at the rooms were beneficial; were some of tlie sug gestions presented by the essayist, followed by Rev. Messrs. Stephen Allen, Cousins, Matthews aud Heatli, and Messrs. Frank Dinglcy and Cobb of Auburn. WEDNESDAY. Tne exercises of Wednesday were begun by a prayer meeting at (> o’clock, followed at 8$ by a praise meeting, and at !> by a promise meet ing, These meetings, together with all of the devotional meetings of the convention were characterized by an earnest, free and heavenly spirit. The topic, “How shall unevangeiical and in fidel influences be counteracted?” was discuss ed by Rev. Messrs. Hannaburg of Portland, Goodrich of West Auburn, Heath of Farming ton, and Messrs. Heath of Augusta, Sturdivant of Portland, Heath of Hallowell, Hobbs and Smith of Portland. The remainder of the forenoon session was occupied iu the presentation and answering of questions connected with the work of the As sociation. At the opening of the afternoon session an invitation from the Portland Association to the Convention to meet in Portland next year was extended and accepted. “How shall the working force of our Asso ciations be increased?” the first topic of the af ternoon, was opened by Rev. D. H. Hanna burg. lie said, earnest, zealous workers were wanted; make the Association rooms very at tractive; encourage a missionary spirit; assign men to some particular work; make them feel their responsibility. Messrs. Learned aud Rob inson of Auburn, and Roberts of Lyndon, fol lowed in earnest remarks. The Cheese Factories.—The associated dairy system in this State appears to be a mark' ed success, especially as concerns the manufac ture of cheese. At the recent meeting of the Board of Agriculture in Houlton the results o* several experiments were given as follows: Capt. Spooner of Sangerville said, “We have built a cheese factory, 00 b.v 32 feet: cost $1000; apparatus, 8700 more. Have made 12, 000 lbs. of cheese; sold when 30 days old. One man had 8 cows and famished milk'two months when he received 1020 lbs. of cheese. It costs 2 1-2 cents per pound to manufacture. Vais hold SOti gallons each, aud cost $80. Bought material for vats iu New York, and put them together at the factory. Prefers Bavarian ren net obtained in New York. Had milk of 100 cows. ■** Mr. Pulsifer has followed milk business for several years. His market is Portland. Kail road freights got so high lie was obliged to change lii.s tactics. He built a cheese factory— cost $2600, hired experienced men from Ver mont for $3 a day. Eight pouods of milk make one pound of cheese now, being better than in duly. Milk is worth 12 cents per gal lon. A man oilers to make cheese next season, if 500 cows are furnished, for 3-4 cent jier pound. Thinks cows will pay $50 per year. A correspondent of the North Star says the St. Albans cheese factory was built this sea son at a cost of $2500. The building cost $1350. It is 30z(>0 feet and two stories high, and being well finished is an ornament to the place. The apparatus cost $1150. It was in operation sixty-nine days, and manufactured nearly seven tons of chees of a line quality. V e consider pur factory a success. The farm ers bring their milk lo the factory every morn ing. It is weighed and the amount credited to them. The cheese is divided among them in proportion to the amount of milk each farmer brings to the factory. The charge for manu factnnng is 2 cents per lb. For making aud selling 2^ cts. h Good judges estimate that a good cow will SSk!*om “0 to 600 lbs. of cheese pery'a, lmtter and ,°if Wb,‘‘y ,mlke twenty pounds of for bigs. d 'e Wlle,y 'S tben just as Suable A cheese factory should the located on the side of a lull if possible, so that water and communication is easily obtained. Build 80 to 40 by 100 feet, 3 stories, for 500 to GOO cows Milk can he gathered from live to six miles by teams engaged for the purpose. Board aud batten the factory; no ceiling or floor are neces sary in the work room. Iron vats cost from $100 to $300 each. Milk cans should hold 10 gallons. Another Greeley Letter.—The Nation prints the following characteristic letter from Mr. Greeley, written at what will be remem" bered as a critical time in our history: New York, April 6, 1804. Mj Dear Sir:—I see those who know least about tile way things are managed at "Wash ington want Mr. Lincoln re-nominated, ami I presume they will have their way. 1 match their judgment with that of Congress, whereof not one third of the unionists desire Mr. Lin coln’s reuomination, and not half can he con strained to seem to approve it, even by the ter rors of popular reprobation. Count Gasparin, 3500 miles away, is naturally eveu .more decid ed and zealous than Connecticut; were he 10, 000 miles away, he would be still more so. 1 am uot accustomed to allow majorities to dictate my opinions; if I were, 1 should he among the new converts for abolition, and share their choice for President. But having seen and felt too much during the last three mournful years, it seems my duty to favor the nomination of someone who will not go through Baltimore in disgu’se aud darkness when he goes to be inaugurated, and who will cause the Mayor and young Chris ians of that city to be kicked out of the White.House whenever they shall dare propose that troops be forbidden to cross tile territory of Maryland to defend the federal metropolis. Had the throe tirst gene rals that proved treacherous or cowardly been shot on sight thereafter, we should long since have seen the end of the rebellion, says yours, Horace Greeley.

Ami after thirty years trial, the “PAIN-KILLER', may justly be styled the great medicine of the world, tor there is no region of the globe into which it has not found its way, and none where it has not been largely and hi ghly prized. Moreover, there is no cli mate to which it has not proved itself to he well adapted lor the cure of considerable variety of diseases; it is admirably suited lor every race. It has lost none of its good name bv repeated trials, but continues to occupy a prominent position in every medicine chest • and is still receiving the most unqualified testimonal’s toils virtues, from persons of the high st character and responsibility. Physicians of the first respect ability recommend it is as a most effectual prepara tion for the extinction of pain. It is not only the best remedy ever known for Bruises, Cuts. Burns but for Dysentery or Cholera, or any sort of bowei com idaiut.it is a remedy unsurpassed for efficiency ami rapidity of action. In the great cities of India ami other hot climates, it has become the Standard Medicine for all such complaints, as well as for Dyspepsia t.lver Complaints, and other kindred disorders. Coughs and Colds, Canker, Asthma, and Rheumatic difficult!88, it lias been proved by the most abundant, juid convincing testimony to be an invaluable medic cine. No article ever attained such unbounded popI ularity. As an exiernal and internal medicine, the Pain-Killer stands unrivalled. Thirty Wars are certainly a long enough time to prove tlie effleenev of any medicine, and tw PAIN-KILLER is deserving of ail its nro hc claim tor it. is amply proved by the unparalelbA popularity it has attained.
