f .4r !ar. u'lle. Trim., The Empire of Traih-. Whatever may be our settled policy with regard to tariffs, it is certain that the trade between America and Europe . Is deslinei to go on increasing for many generations. The improvements in the arts and industries during the last thirty years have given to this trade life "and stability, and so great is it about to become that nations, sections, and. individuals through the whole world will feel its influence. e have already reached a transition period. A future of new, of imperative and ' ( unknown wants is lleforc us. Frivo lous and weak (systems of education and of thinking must give way before actual science and facts relating to I'ommcrcc and mechanics; and our Legislators and young men, seeking for a pathway, must awake to the new conditions if the' would become ac tors in the immediately approaching scenes.. In connection with thin for eign trade is the trade across our con tinent, which, of itself, already excelV ihc trade of the whole world in the most prosperous days of the Roman Empire Some have supposed that - railroaws have iuflit a lmJIy blow i 1 1 . .1 1 1 i ' ujmjii tin-i-isiijuii-i i v: ui tilts j-ripni'n, uu far from this being the enscj the tun nagc of Chicago exceeds the tuimage of the City of New-York. When we adl'to this the traffic of our railroads, and of our Western rivers, navigable tl rough an extent of at least 10,000 miles, wc must see that we are in a new age, and we shall realize that the weak Past is incapable of guiding the vigor ous Present. A commercial centre always reaches out toward the fountain of supply. Situated at the head of a deep, beauti ful bay, and looked by islands, green hills, and many 6horcs, with scenery and soil unsurpassed, and in a climate which gives vigor and health. New ,York can have no superior. Only one . other city on the globe has similar na tural advantages ; this is Constantino ple, the grave of a buried Empire. ' There, on the East, is a mountain re gion similar to New-England ; beyond , is one similar to rennsyivanm, JNew York, and Ohio; on the West is a, Varied COUntry not loan valualJo tban Virginia toid Tennessee; andjon the North are wide districts which even to-day rival in productions Illinois and the great North-West. The City of Brooklyn originated when New-York i began to reach a hand to the home trade of New-England, of Europe, and thejslands of the Ocean. While there was no West, the East River side was sthc center of activity. Until the Erie Canal was opened, the North River side had no more consequence than rwhat the trade of New-Jersey and the ..river counties created. When Wes tern New-York and Ohio could be reached, the trade gravitated toward -the Western piers. When tliq Erie, Hudson River, and Harlem Railroads were built, Courtlandt become a rival W Pearl-st Next, tk'Wcsi finds entrance by the Pennsylvania and the New-Jersey Central, and in these very days New-York is going forth on this Ijae building villas and towns. Thus, jj fn giving; a hand to the West the trade 'of this city has moved like the bands, on a dial, and. having nearly made a circuit, it stops, facing toward the West Cicago now builds five houses west ward where she builds one in auy oth cr direction. The attempt has often been made to build commercial cities on the eastern banks of our Western riverf AJtotf rywja better location than St. Louis, ana it nas tno aavan tage of being nearly opposite the mouth of the Missouri, and just below . the mouth of the Illinois. When the u Michigan Central Railroad was build ing, St. Joseph, on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, expected to be the terminus ; everybody suddenly became rich, and lots were immensely valua ble. The plan was to have a ferry of ixt miles across 'the lake to Chicago but the road ran clear around the lake to reach a more insignficant town on the :Western shore. On the lower Mississippi, towns are on the eastern side because the. western shore i3 an f Tunbroken swarno. 'ifAFiT ' '" 6u the western bank of the mighty ocean stream stands the City of New York. It is the realization of Phocnt flan. Curtharronian. Venetian, and all later dreams of commercial greatness. : - a - i re i!.:tii ::!, it is a chief jewel in a it'ille ui siiriiii-.-in.MV i!'wi;:iu niiin , - ..I i: ....,...,.j !!..

On our whole continent, between the Arctic and Antarctic Seas, no other region is so favorable for the sustaining of hu man existence. It is also in the gold and silver belt of Colorado, Dakota, Nevada,' and California. Neither France, Spain, Italy, Germany nor Russia has such natural wealth ; and in all Europe, only England has simi lar meadows, orchards and mines to 6how. Outside of this belt, we still have a country richer and more exten sive than Europe, which modern agri cultural skill, combined with a patriot ism that will disregard human com plexion and parallels of latitude, will develop, by building lines of trafllc from the Gulf of Gilifornia and the City of Mexico to Norfolk. Then, and then only will lines of deeply laden ships sail to Havre and Marseilles. In these passing days, a mighty struggle is going on to Secure, if it may be, a mononolv of the rich trPffrowing r ..j of the mountains, and put of the tea gardens and mulberry plantations of China and Japan. On one hand, we see the Harlem, the Hudson River, the Erie, the Central, the Canadian Grand Trunk, and the Lake Shore Railroads striving that they may become consol idated into one corporation, so as to secure unbroken transit of passengers and freight to Chicago, and thence across the Mississippi, the Missouri, and the Platte. On the other hand, are the great Pennsylvania Central and its extension, the New-Jersey Cen tral,' with an uninterupted track from Chicago to the deep liny of New-York, grasping for the snmo prifte, and in so doing they relax thoir hitherto rigid grasp on the" route to Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Kansas ''-City ; or, what is' the same, on the South Pacific, so su perior are the attractions of Omaha. Not less than $2,00,000,000 are rep resented in this contest even this sidr of Iowa. Two points, on these two rival lines are prominent Pittsburgh, wtth its industries in iron, glass and staple ftforics. and Rochester. - enduring muns, orcnaras, wheat fields, and intelligent women and men. One may be more successful than the other, but it will le a national calami ty if they harmonize and form ..one monopoly. There is enough for both ; in 20 years there will be more than both can do. Our Continental trade, thus throw ing its shadows before, will demand millions, of men in all the industries and arts ; and, in connection, farming and fru it-grpwing will require a prac tical aD d scientific dcvelopement only possible in times of peace and in a land of liberty. Ono who takes these things in view, natunilly will prophesy that the new systems of education and thought nec essary in carrying on our vast trade will react on Europeon Constitutions, and make the coming generations smile that their fathers were the slaves of aristocrats and kings.

Many fanners have a mrplus of stale fat and dirty grease, which can be made into good candles at a trifling expense. - I kept both tallow and lard" candles through the last summer, the lard can dles standing the heat best, and burn ing quite as well and giving as good a light as the tallotf ones. Directions for making good candles from lard : For 12 lbs. of lard, take 1 lb. of saltpe tre, and one lb. of alum : mix them and pulverize them ; dissolve the saltpetre and alum in a gill of boiling water ; pour the compoundjnto the lard be fore it is quite all melted ; stir the whole until it boils, skim off what rises ; let it simmer until the water is all boiled out, or till it ceases to throw off steam ; pour off the lard as soon as it is done, and clean the boiler while it is hot. If the candles' are to be run, you may commence immediately ; if to be nipped let the brdQfrl first, to 1 cake, and then treat it aiyOu would tallow, -r Cor. 2T.E. Farm.tr.
