TO THE EDITOR OF THE GLOBE.
Mr. Editors As you hive lately copied into your piper nn article entitled "Gen tlemao Farmer, tend you another of Ibe lima title, which 1 find in the 'Far mer's Cabinet,' vol. 6, No. 6; which gives a different state of the cue . I have no doubt ofyour willitigoes, to let both sidea be beard; and, consequently, that you will insert me article. s. Mr. Derby gee, at a late agricultural meeting, a sketch of a 'farm he owns on an island in Winnipiaeogce Like, a re . gion where one would hardly expect the state of things be describes. This farm includes 500 acres 170 acres in wood, 280 acres in pasturage, 60 acres In mow ing and tillage, usually 8 or 10 acres un der the plough. There are now 37 cows, and sometimes 44. The original cost of the farm and stock was $4,200. The ale in 1S30 Iwd amounted to $1,008, this year (1842) to $1,500: the falling off being attributible to the decline in prices. The sale consists of butter, cheese, and pork. The cows and swine giro hira abundant resources of manure, which he applies liberally on cultivated grounds, from 39 to 40 loads per aero. Mr. D. bad this year 10 acres under the plough 2 in potatoes, 1 in wheat, I in oats, and Gin Indian corn. Ilia 6 acres produced bim 400 bushels. One acre of his born gave bim 131 bushels, and lie applied to the Agricultural Society of the county for ibe premium ;but was defeated by a competitor who claimed it for 133 bushels. Mr. D. staled that one ground of his success was, that his farm mansger was himself directly interested in the results, la lite first place he has what he needs from the farm for the support of bis family. In addition to this, he bad in cash $300 a year, and on his sales was allowed.when bisbuiiersold a(30cen(s per pound; on cheese sold, 11 cent; on pork. J cent. v This gave tho farmer nearly f 500 per year. His sales was last year new milk cheese, 5,000 pounds, but ter 2,350, and pork 2,000; besides reserv ing enough for the consumption of his family; the male labor on the farm con sisting of the farmer and two hired men. The female department is filled by one woman, the wile of the mmager, who performs all the household work, and makes all the butter and cheese. Under this management Mr. D. has received from bis farm 15 per cent, on the origin- al invosiro.nt.and the farm is in a course of improvement. ..: From the Greenville Mountaineer THE DOG AND SNAKE STORY AGAIN. 0 It will be recollected that we published a dog and snake story several weeks since, tbe correctness of which was doubted by ft writer in the Charleston Courier, ih. .Witnra of "Paul Prvl The fcllowino certificate, sustaining the facta, has been recently furnished us forjmbli ealion: , RnwattsviiXE.

Amos Kendall, in an article upon the whig fallacies about a home market, asks: ,, ' "Has the building up of Lowell or . Nashua increased the pricee of the far-, mar's wheat or corn in Ohio, Indiana or Illineiaf Every man knows better. Has it increased the prices of the farmer's corn and rye raised in the very neighborhood t Every farmer fifly years old who lives there, knows better. He knows that their prices,fhijty or forty years sgo.were higher that they are now. Southern and Western corn and flour have been brought by means of the manufacturing establishment, into competition .with those of the New England farmer at his own door, reducing prices there without increasing them in the regions whence the new supplies come. These are no torious facts the strongest of arguments. io think ol increasing the prices ofWest- em produce by building' up manufactur er!, and thus increasing the number of domestic comumers is as Idle as to think of affecting the volume of the Mississip pi above or below by throwing the water over the levee at New Orleans with a bucket. The production of that teem ing region is too vast to be affected by an operation so minute. The Mississip pi must have an ocean to receive the wa ters of its innumerable fountains,' and a world for a market To create a home market for its ptoduetion in England or elaswhers by legislation, is just about as ludicrous an operation as digging a home reservoir to receive the waters of ' its mighty rivers. As a man of the west, we say to the General Government, clear out our Rivers, improve our Lake and River harbors, protect us from piracy snd war on the Ocean, and give us the World for a market. Do this, and in half a cen tury, we will show you the results never surpassed in earthly beauty and protect-! iveness, since God planted the first garden among the four rivers of ludea. A Test or Pbikciflb. Among other questions at issue in the Late election in Louisana, was that of the adoption of a Constitution, extending the tight of suf frage. 1 he democrats' unanimously vo ted lor that measure, and the whigs aa unammoualy voted against it. The fact is only one demonstration more, added to a large number already before the people, that the whig leaders are every' where Algienar's in politics. Years of dissembling had given the peo pie some grounds for being deceived in this matter. Al the last presidential election,they passed themselves off upon the country as democrats. It was to this deception, that they owed their triumph, the only signs, one 'hey have gained for years. But no sooner had the Rhode Island controversy arisen in the land, than these same men threw off their disguise, and openly proclaimed every where, that the Algerine government were justified in putting down the ceuse of free suffrsg at the point of the bayonet! Not satis. fled with this exhibit, they showd their hand again, in the late Louisana election Let our laboreis remember, that the whig party is led on by men who do not bo lieve that any but the rich should be al lowed to vote Let them remember that opposition to free suffrage, is in truth the corner stone of modern whiggery, and that its whole policy tends, is much possible, to build da the rich at the ex penae of the poor.

If ihe great Assumption humbug with all its dangerous phrases, should succeed, Direct Taxation must certainly follow The interest on tbe debt it is computed will be but little short ol $15,000,000 Where we ask, is this money to come fromf Not tbe public lends; that is to be distributed not the Custom houses; for the duty on foreign imports is so large as lo amount to prohibition not trie ' roon ey now lying in tho Treasury; for it is empty, bankrupt, in debt. Where, then, we ask emphatically, is this money to coma fromf Tbe people; snd by adi rect lax imposed on their effects. This conclusion necessarily follows. We are driven to it by force, and can arrive at no other. Tha expenditures oi me nation must be met and liquidated. There is no flinching from the point; the debt of Ihe nation must be paid; and when other sour ces of revenue fail, tho burthen of ma king up the deficit must .all direct on the shoulders of the people. .Direct tax ation, with its necessary accompaniments, collectors, excise officers, and govern ment patronage, appears to us to be ce r lainlys desperate, as well aa dernier re sort. We cannot even .' imagine all the mischief with which it must be alien ded, bat enough art plain to make us de- precale such a policy,' end yet the meas ures of our opponents tend directly that way.

That i, everv body who will sell bimelf to vote the whig ticket can be enabled to do so. This is one of the beauties of the prop erty qualification. In the bands . of the whigs, it is a wholesale system of bribery and corruption; and it is no wonder that the State of Louisiania has been so long in the hands of the whips. For the fu- ure. it is to be hoped that the service of the Executive Committee of the 'demo cratic whig parly,' for tbe sale of Real Estate, may not be needed. A better day is dawning in Louisiana.

No political question is less under stood, and therefore more liable to mis'rep snntstion, than that of the tariff. Tbe whig journals advocate a high tariff for the protectionnof American . nimufactu u erg, and represent the democrats as be ing opposed to protecting borne industry, because they oppose such high tsriff The difference between the two parlies on this subject, is simply this: The whigs desire to make protection 1he main object of'Hhe tariff. The democratic party, desire that the leading object shall be revenue for the support of the gof ernmeot; and are willing that manufac turers should have the advantage of the incidental protection such tariff would afford. Now, as tariff is an Indirect mode of levying taxes, all that is thus raised from the p eope, by tbe whig policy, over enough to support the government, is so much tax paid, by the mass to sup port a few manufacturing establishments in the eastern Slates, and to increase the wealth ol the rich stockholders, ma ny of whom are English capitalists, who are always ready to leap the advantage of oppressive laws, whether enacted in England or America. This is the rea son why democrats oppose a 'ariff for protection, higher than is necessary " for the support of government.. As the gov ernment is for the benefit of all, it should protect t alike, and all wilt then Cheer, fully contribute to Its maintainance ; but when the government compels the mass to increase tbelr contribution for the benefit of the few, it cesses its protec tisn, and becomes a tyrannic oppres sor. , .. "Butwe want a home market for our sur ptus agricultural produce," say the advo cator of a high tariff for. protection. If we were by a high tariff to exclude most articles of manufacture that are now im " ported from foreign countries,' and cause Ibsm to be manufactured in the United States, where tSen would we get revenue for the support of government f The same party that would impose such tariff, de sire also to distribute the proceeds of the public lands among tbe States. They would thus leave the treasury empty, and the only resort then for revenue would be lo direct taxation:. there would be no al ternative left. " And yet this seme party accuse the democrats of being in favor of direct tsxation! ' How absurd! If we ehould, by imposing an , oppress ive and unjust tariff, so ' far -encourage manufacturers that more would ho mans ufactured in this country than' could be consumed here, where could wo sell Ihe surplus? England would not buy. from us,',becaue, according to the statement of the high lariffites, she can manufac ture much cheaper than we in ' America can. We could not sell in other foreign countries, because England could, suc cessfully compete, with us there, and thus monopolise the carrying trade of the world. : Our commerce, under such a system, would languish and decay: The tea and coffee, and what little else of for eiffn production we would consume in ep .t-. r - this country, would be brought to us ;n English vessels, and be bought of Eng lishman at their own prices. J ( A very large quantity of our surplus agricultural produce ia now sold in Eng land and other manufacturing countries. But under the protective policy proposed, as we would buy but little of their manu factures, tbey would buy but little of our surplus produce, but would go for bread tuffs to countries wherein they could exchange or sell their manufactures. - So that the farmer would lose a vast deal more by a home market thus created than the direct tax thai would be ' impos ed upon bim for", lbs support of Ihe Gov eminent. And the mechanic of the weal would doubtless deem that a baJprotec iion wbicb would compel him lo pay a heavv indirect lax on every Coat he ShOUlU DUy, lor iuq uvucui i vnaiaru manufacturers, besides . paying his pro portion of the direct tax. , . ' t he true American policy is io impose such duties only on imports as may be necessary for Ibe support or uoveroment; and then leave our citizens to raise and manufacture such articles as tbey can rhainar than can be done in other coun tries: their surplus will then sen reaanv in foreign couutries, agriculture, man u lac urea a jd commerce will nourish, eur vessels will float upon eveiy sea, a lid we will have the whole world for a mar ket. f . ; ORGANIZESORGANIZE!! " It is now but two weeks before the election. Are our friends organized and prepared to bring out their whole force f A few townships, we are informed, are ready for action. We hope that the dem c orals of tbi oiber townships will not fail to organize immediately, by the appoint ment of township ahd school district com mittees of vigilance, whose dury it shall be to see that every democratic voter at tends the polls on Tuesday the 11th of October, and that no illegal votes are la ken.

And as Franklin appears still unsatisfied" with what we said on this subject two weeks since, we will stale further that Mr. Barker resided in this county until he was fourteen years,, of age, when be removed to Clermont.'and returned to this county two years Sjgo I his fall, where be has resided ever since with the exception of three months in the summer of 1842, when he weot into the edge ofClermonl county to leach a school. He went with the intention of returning, and did return when bis quartsr endad. That he is a resident snd a citizen of this county, no impartial person will deny. Hamilton Couhtt. A few late con verts from whiggery, who have been act- l ng with the democrats for a year or two past, are making desperate efforts to de. feat the nominees of the Hamilton coun ty dsmocratic convention; but. from the resolutions passed at recent town ship meetings, we think there is no pros pact of the disorganize accomplishing their object.'

V" The Whig presses all over the country are savoring to create the impression in the public mind, that the - revival business is the necessary result of the tariff. They carefully shut out from public view, the important facts, that al vsst number of men have been driven from unproductive to productive labor 1 that an immense surplus of produce was in the country for sale and that a for eign demand existed for It. Alljhese canses combined, have operated to pro duce the increased action in the business of the countrv which we now witness.

It is a fact well wot-' Ihy the American people's attention, and should be particularly borne in mind . by farmers, that our exports lo Great Brit ain have steadily increased under a low tariff.'

The salt bef exported increased from 899 ewts. per annum, m cwts; Dutier iron one cwt. lo 3879 cwts; cheese from nine cwt. to 14,097 cwts; bams from 62 cwts. to mfn . . . .. 1133 cwts; ard from nothing to 20,555 cwts .clover seed from 350 cwts.to22,632 CWts: ' sheep's Wool from S34 R7S lha. la 561,028 pounds; pork from 1352 cwts. lo 13,408 cw'.s; wileat from nothing to ' 16.1 11 Etlfflish On'artAra, ftnni- from t - 659 cwls. to 381.06G cwts; tobacco from 20 748.317 lbs In 38.018.012 lbs.
