"That this payment," says fiov. Hi.aiii, lu his report to the House of Itepresentiitives, "wu not only without law, but In direct viola tion of law, theio can be no doubt what ever.

Moreover, as he Is not content to woik for en tirely Impracticable ends, he hn brought down upon hiui'elf the denunciation of u certain class of the profescional agitators in (iretit llritaili, who, witli the best In tentions, uro doing their utmost to elc.; intelligent elTort in behalf of tho iu- I u-t rinl ulasscs there. lu a recent speech delivered lu (ilnsgow, Mr Cii.iiti.us Dii.ki: exhibited a keen ap preciation of the poll I leal situation in i'liglaud.

Those who entertain thu Idea that Sir Cii.wu.i-s Dii.kk Is it weak man will do well to study his programme. Agriculture in Mew KiiRland. In it speech on tho opening day of the New r.ngl.md Fair, Dr. H eouuk II. Ioiiino, the gloat amateur agriculturist, ssld that thu people of New Kuglniid nro doing their whole duty In respect to nurleullure; that thu agricultural popul .tlon was never In better condition than now, nnd Hint they occupy Mich land ns will rewnrd them for their toil. If Dr. I.oiti.s'o had said that tho funning people of New I'nglniid occupy such hind us they think will r wnrd them lor their toll, ho would havu been more correct in his assertion. No one who has travelled through the rural die- 1 t riots of New England hut must kuow that uiiiuy thousands, of uoruri nro lying waste, uovorod with useluss brush or ouni bored with stones, which might by n com paratively small amount of labor bo made to bear remunerative crops. Less ambi tious ancestors were happy to cultivate lands which their fortuue-hiiutiiigdeseeud-auU permit to lie lu frowy desolation. Never has there been u period lu Now Kngland when agriculture could have been moro remuuerative than now. Every ntrcnin Is dotted with manufacturing vil lages, with their hundreds of consumers, all dependent on the surrounding country for milk and vegetables, mid lurgely for fruit and cider. Yet the farmers generally complain that their profits are scarcely suf ficient to meet expenses, and I hey express thu opinion that it would pay better to raise wood, We suspect that If New Kng land fanners were lo work moro them selves and hlru less help, farming might he mure prolltahlc. Make the young iiieu work Instead of driving thclr.futhc r's horses into town, and poring over dime novels lu the garret, Then crops u III be. gin to bo bigger, nml mortgages smaller. If New I'ngltiud ngricultiiru is tn be made prafllnhlc, the sous of New Kngland farm ers must not bo ashamed to hold the plough their fathers held. The.
