Dr. Cumming has been stating his opinion at Leeds respecting tbe great events whtch, according to hip interpretation of tbe Book of Daniel and the Apocalypse, are looming in tbe future. He said the year 1867 seemed to end 6,000 years of the world's history, and from the earliest periods onward it had been the almost universal belief that the six days of creation were typieal of tbose 6,000 years, and that the seventh day of creation, or tbe Sabbath, was typical of the millennial rest of 1,000 years. But they would say that, supposing this were so, they were at this moment over 140 years short of tbe 6,000 years, it was a remarkable fact, how ever, that the ablest cbronologists, irrespect ive of all prophetie theories, had shown that a mistake of upwards of 100 years bad been made in calculating the chronology of the world, and that the year I860 of the Chris tian era began not from the year 4004 of the world's history, but in tbe year 41S8, and that the year of Christ's birth was five years before that, or in 4132. If his premises were just, then they were at that moment within seven years of tbe exhaustion of tbe 6,000 years so that as 1867 was to be tbe termi nation of this economy, tbey bad arrived at the Saturday evening of tbeworld's long and dreary week. If this wore so, it was a mag nificent thought that there were some io that assembly who would never die. They were just plunging into days auob as tbey had nev er seen an European war was looming, more dreadful than that through which tbey had recently passed, and when these things hap pened it would be «Mn that th» be had uttered were not the dreams of fmi Mem, but of soberness and truth.

"But no real Republican is willing to take the baok traok now, when ths tide of public feeling against the Slave Power is so much higher than it ever was before. If the out siders will vote with us for our men, give them all due credit, and let them have for their reward the blessings of a renovated Government and a country rescued from dis honor.

"With sueh men ae Seward and Chase, Banks and Lincoln, and others in plenty, let us have two Republicans, representing men, to vots for.

ANOTHBB SLAVXBY TBTO. Otrr readers will remember all nbotrt tfm effort at "unfriendly legislation" touching the Slavery queetion in Nebraeka how ths impadsnt sovereigns of that inohoate State attempted to regulate "their domeetie insti* tutions in their own way" by deelaring that involuntary servitude ehould not exist there in, all the Democracy voting against the proposition and how tbe bill was vetoed by the Governor, (or pooketod, I now forget which). Well, another sample of Demo •ratio abstraet preferenoe for free inetitu tions, (for they all prefer Freedom, at the North they are "opposed to Slavery, in the abstract,") of Dsmooratio willingneesto let the people deoidefor themselves, (they have n right to have Slavery, they eay, if they went it, and if they don't, to say so, and re solve tbey will not have it), has lately been exhibited, in Kansas, as perhaps our rea\|fs have already been made aware, to-wit: The Legislature of that Territory declared that their people didn't wan't Slavery, either, and passed a bill abolishing it. if any politioal fact had been clearly proved, it A«seem ae if that bad been. For several years in every possible way they have been reeieting the threats, tbe foroe, and the entreaties of Border Rufians, of the Administration, with the horde of intrigaers and oorrup tionists it has sent out, and tbe powerful machinery of tbe United Democratic party to make them eay that they did want it, or at leaet would tolerate it all without effect, other than to unite them more firmly in the effort to reeist the approach of that sooial and moral blight. But, true to its instincts, trus to its ruling spirit, true to the resolu tion of tbose who now manage it, give it doc trines, and bestow its honors and rewards, Democracy, in the pereon of ite Territorial Governor and cat's-paw, bae attempted to nullify the resolution of the people there, too, and to maintain Slavery in defianoe of tbe interests and tbe emphatically pro nounced will of tbe people, and vetoed the Legislative aet. Long and active effort to put down the spirit of Freedom in that Ter ritory, however, has reeulted in rousing ite energies and giving it almost irreeistiblelife and power, and it is therefore possible that even the requisite two-thirds vote may es tablish the law in defiance of Democracy and its petty and malignant minions. Do not these things ssrve to show more definitely and undeniably, if more proof upon that point were needed to oonvince one can did mind, that tbe reeolution to maintain, fortify and extend tbe accursed system of human bondage is tbe great, leading, active principle of tbe Democratic party What do all these things prove, what is their sig nificance and oharaoter, if tbey do not prove that? Some Douglas men eay their wing of the party is not pro-slavery, any more than it is anti-slavery but their wing ie not in power, and tbey oan't help it if they were, tbey would. What subterfuge is this! Doee the Douglae press (with a solitary exception or two) raise its voioe to object to this sort of thing Is it not permitted to transpire unnoticed before ite eyee? Nay, hae Dou glas himself opened hie mouth in reproba tion? Dare he do it? Would it not be the knell of bis hopee if be ehould It is true, as no intelligent, uoprejudioed man oan deny, that the defence of the principle and the ex tension of the system of human slavery is the pervadifig, all-powerful principle of tbe Demooratio party, ie that the doctrine and desire of tbe American people, too If eo, then they will continue this party in power and defend its aots. if not, then tbey will only stultify themselves, or demonstrate that it rulee tbe nation, not tbey, if they permit ite expiring leaee of power to be renewed. POUOLAS'e nUKANOK. Douglas's personal deportment at this time dearly exposes hie tendencies and the spirit of his present efforts. Hs hssthe Democra cy North, he thinks a large majority of the Democraoy North, io fact. Therefore it need be no more thought about. It is osr tain in any event. When he was fastening that to his person, he etruok a lofty attitude. He wae defiant. He went as far as was neeessary to seours it. But, ths Northern Democraoy in his breeohee pooket, he now goee whining, truokling, [maneuvering after the Soath. And I wish his Northern sup porters could witneee his movements and his personal demeanor, now-a-days. He is never eoen on the Republican eide of the Hone*— tie is never eeen petting and patting anti Leoomptonitee. The Demooratio Senatorial oauoas may eonteae for the purpose of eet tling tbe dootrine of the perty on the Terri torial question, and to harmonise ite senti ments. Bat Douglas ie not there. He is no where to defend a principle at tbe poaeible risk of compromising personal interests and offending party friends. Jeff. Davis may there defend Congressional intervention for the defence of Slavery. Bat equetter soversignty may go undafsndsd for all Douglas. For the first time in month* he oan meet Forney in the Houss, and find it not convenient to see him. He oan etand al most by the side of him, neoessarily knowiiqg of bis presonoej but before that Home 0/ Southern Democrate be dare not r—ogntsc him. Forney wae second only to him io anti Leoompton eminence. Rot be hae been con sistent in tbe support of anti-Leeompt*n Demooraey. And Douglas ie on tbe other taok now, and declines, ie afraid, even to recognise his presence or aoknowledge per sonal aoquaintanee. This is ths bravery, this is tbe manhood, this the elevation of Demagogue Douglai, JSoryitniPp^tr^ttt, behold your chief. "W '»#•».* ABULAM LINCOLN.

After the ueual order of bueineee the fol lowing questions were discussed: 1st, What is the beet winter treatment for early blooming fruit treee to prevent the too early flowering of fruit buds This quee tion was discussed by Meeere. Hubbcil, Hil ton and Barnea. 2nd, iiot-bede for propagating garden plants. Mr. Duke considered them of great impor tance, and gave tbe following directione for making a substitute for glass for cover Get good bleached muelin of length and width required, eoak forty-eight hours in a very ttrong brine, then bang it up, and when dry saturate with boiled lineeed oil, dry in the open air, and it will beoome quite trane parent. Had made one with frame 3 by 0 feet for 50 cents, and believed it would an ewer the same purpose ae glass and suffer no damage from hail. Mr. Lambert could make the beet bed of leaves, but when waoted for qoiok propaga tion preferred manure. Beds level with tbe surfaoe are warmer, bat when raised above tbe groand tbeir temperature ie better regu lated. Had tried cloth as a eover, but it woald not do as well as glass. Mr. Weyand would make beds with horse manure as follows Throw it into a pile un til wanted allow no oow manure to mix with it turn it oceaaionalJy to prevent shake it up loose and put it in 2^ feet deep if dry tramp down and pour on water on this put 4 to 6 inchee of old manure, then 4 inches soil, and on top a little sand to pre vent baking dig draine on the eides to run off the rain water. Mr. Lambert woold let the rank beat es cape before putting on the eoil. He exhibit ed a fine radish grown this seaeon. Mr. Maltby thought cloth ehonld only be need when glaee could not be procured. Mr. Tewtsbnry called up the queetion touched upon at the last meeting, vis: Are the exhalations of plants during the nigbt deleterious in sleeping rooms? He believed they are unwholeeome as tbey exhale at night a deadly poison known as oarbonic aoid gas. Dr. Knowlee contended that plante during the night absorb 1 oarbonle acid gas, decom pose it, appropriate the oarbon and exhale oxygen. Tbe oxygen being the vital princi ple of the atmosphere, animals appropriate tbe oxygen exhaled by plante and plante ap propriate the carbon exhaled by animals, yet all require the influenoe of solar light, at least a part of tbe time, with other enrround ing conditions, to insure the health of both. When thie is the eaee, they then mutually act and reaot upon tbe health and development of each. Mr. Maltby queetioned thie system of things, and read from Boussingault's Rural Economy to prove it falee. The quotations were to the effeot that plants do exhale oar bonic acid gae at night, and that thick and watery leavee give off leee than othere. Mr. Duke gave notice that be should at tbe next meeting offer an amendment fixing the yearly fee at fifty ocnts, instead ef ens dollar ae it now is. It was decided that the queetion for die oueeion at tbe next meeting shall be "The Cultivation of StrawbevriM." Adjourned to meet at the same place, on Thursday, April 5th, at 2 o'elook, p. m. J.R.
