Trouble in Mexico. Mexico is once more in trouble. What it ia all about we do not know, nor do we care. The time has been brief indeed when that country has been at peace with itself, within the rucmor;' of all living:. Revolutions and counter revolutions, plots and counterplots, treason, rob beries and foul assassinations have been the rule. Xo sooner ia one pre sident put on his throne than a move is made to overthrow him; the result of all which is that Mexico is sunk so low in the scale of nationality that there are " none so poor as to do her reverence." The best thing that can possibly happen to her is to come un der the protection of the United States, becoming one of them, though we can not conceive of a worse disaster to our own country; we therefore hum bly pray heaven that such a catastro phe may long be averted. There is something iuefi'ably dirty and mean about Spanish blood if the 'uongrels who inhabit Mexico may be called Spanish. Spanish blood everywhere is incapable of self government. It lacks energy, life, perseverance, sta bility, and what is more than all these, it lacks solid principle. Cuba has for a year or more been fighting for inde pendence ; it is Spanish blood against Spanish blood ; hence we have small sympathy for what are called the "struggling patriots" of that island, for we well know that whichever party triumphs, the same blood is dominant, and in the end either anarchy or tyr anny will prevail. 111c Cubans arc incapable of self-government, we sad ly fear. They lack intelligence the lack of all Spanish colonics. Spain has been in a ferment for over a year and what has come of it ? She has dethroned a wicked and profligate queen, it is true, but what has she got in return ? Are her people any bet tcr off? Every few weeks we hear of trouble there, and of her people flocking to the barricades, a little blood is spilled, when all is quiet again. Letter from Washington. Washington, Feb. 12, 1870. Mr. Sherman's bill in the senate yes terday, recognizing the present exist ence of a state of war in Cuba, and declaring our sympathy for her, is considered a stroke, with one fell blow,. that will set her free. In both houses, so far as known, nine tenths ore favorable to aiding struggling Cu ba in some way or another. It i& not in the nature of things in. this pro gressive age, that a colony like Cuba only about 400 miles from a republi can government, should be governed by a despotic government over 4000 miles away. The pressure is so ceat that even senator Sumner is being re conciled to some favorable action on the part of the United States toward Cuba.

Self aggrandizement was the cause. The senators were more decorous in their personalities than the representatives, but sufficiently emphatic to show extreme bitterness toward each other. Mr. Sumner has taken upon himself a big load to de fend the well centered attacks upon him from the different quarters of the senate chamber, and it is feared un less a compromise is made, it will be necessary to call to his rescue some of the new senators who have come upon the stage since the reconstruc tion acts were passed, and those of the old who are not seeking after the laurels of having been first to advo cate this and the other popular meas ure in those act3. Senator Sherman, with his practical common sense, made an effort to quiet the turmoil and tran quilize the tempers of those would be famous reconstructionists. But to no avail ; there was an organized force in the senate determined to take a lit tle egotism out of the Puritan Sena- The March " Riverside" gives for a frontispiece, another of Stephens's fa mous animal pictures, illustrating La Fontain'a fable of the " The Cat, the Weasel, and the Young Rabbit." new Beries is begun, in ' Pictures from Froissart," by Paul II.

Statistictjs. tor. 1 he set-to in the house was be tween Hon. Sunset Cox and Gen. But ler, and caused a good deal of merri ment. Butler had made some remarks upon the mileage question, and Mr. Cox in replying wound up with the following : " If there is one gentleman whom I love to defend more than an other, not only in his military, but in his economical career, commencing with the Dutch Gap Canal, and run ning through all his conduct, connect ed a3 it is with his noble, moral, high toned principles respecting the policy of this government, it is the gentle man from Massachusetts." Mr. But ler retorted, " As to the vituperation of the member from New York, he will hear my answer to him by every boy that whistles it on the street, and every hand organ." '-Shoo, fly ; don't bodder me." Mr. Cox being a gen tlernan of rather light weight, became very angry, lost his temper entirely, and in his reply to Butler had to be frequently called to order for using unparliamentary language. The gen tlemen on both sides of the house en joyed the little sparring match, and were frequently uproarous in their applause. An effort is being made to have a bill introduced in congress to author ize the Commissioner of Patents to distribute premiums for the best inven tions in certain specified classes. The patent fund has increased until it is now over $500,000. This fund be longs rightfully to the inventors of the country. It has accumulated from fees which they have pa'd into the Patent Office, and is over and above all the expenses of that institution. The proposition is to give back to in ventors a portion of this fund yearly in the shape of premiums for their in ventive genius and industry. Suppose $100,000 should be set apart yearly and distributed in Fums of $10,000 each to inventors who should produce the best invention with working ma chines, in ten different and distinct classes, such as the Reaper, Steam En gine, Telegraph, Printing Press, tc, what an immense stimulus would be given to inventive genius, and how wonderfully would the industrial pur suits of the country be benefitted. We owe our present advanced state in the mechanical arts entirely to the patent system. Yet every inventor feels that if he ever realizes anything for his invention after he receives a patent from the government, it must be done by his own enterprise and perseverance in introducing it. There is no positive assurance that he will ever be compensated for his time. labor and ingenuity, although there is always a strong hope. Should the government encourage invention by giving it some suitable reward, it wo'd not only be doing its individual citi zens justice, but would be adding to its own wealth and, and to its stand ing with other nations. No one who is unacquainted with the system of patents, and with mven tors as a class, can even well form an approximate idea of the impetus that would be given to genius throughout the whole country, by a judicious dis tribution of positive sums of money for the most meritorious inventions or discoveries which ma; be made yearly. The past thirty years has de veloped many wonderful improve ments in engines of war, means of lo comotion and of communication of useful knowledge, and hundreds of other things which have raised us as a people in the scale of civilization and national power and wealth. We owe all to the inventor, and as there seems to be a lull in the efforts o genius at present, it is the duty of the government to apply a stimulus, and if possible to throw into the shade the results of the past thirty years by the brilliant achievements . of the next thirty. , It will be consoling to your aged readers, whose years admonish them that their stay on earth is short, to know that Mr. John Spence, born in 1762, and an old revolutionary sol dier, is still alive and in sufficient good health to come from Baltimore to Washington on Thursday, to pay his respects to the president, and honor the halls of congress with his pres ence. The above date of the birth of Mr. Spence, shows him to b 108 years old. In conversation with the president, the old veteran stated that he witnessed the surrender of Lord ornwallis at Yorktown, and had met every president of the United States, but feared that he would not survive to meet the next. There is a growing feeling in the senate in favor of a provision requir ing appointments to the supreme court to be made hereafter from citizens of the Circuit over which the judges will preside. It is not at all improbable that the nominations of Messrs. Strong of Pennsylvania, and -Bradley of New Jersey, for the Supreme Bench, will be delayed by the senate for some days. The southern senators ot course are a unit in favor of equalizing the Judi cial appointments among the districts. The late legal tender decision is creating quite a hub bub here. This decision requiring all obligations made prior to 18G2 payable in gold, will affect the south more than any other portion of the country, and especially in these hard times when it is utterly impossible in most eases to pay even the interest in currency on the princi pal. The fact that the decision virtu ally adds one fifth to the obligations of the several states, now amounting to about two hundred millions of dol lars, and which in most part is paya ble to corporate companies, indicate that there must have been great anx icty on the part of the beneficiaries of this decision ; and if it had been a question to be decided by congress, much lobbying would have been occa sioned. The General Land Office has just received returns, showing that during the month of January last, one hun dred aud thirtv-eight farms. embracing 12,329 acres, were added to the pro ductive area of the state of Arkansas, under the operations of the homestead law. The weather still continues to be delightfully warm and pleasant. The snow has all disappeared and the streets are again dry. Like.

On the 24th of December we left Sau Francisco for Yisalia, travcliug by rail through the Sau Jose, or Santa Clara, valley, south easterly SO miles to Gilroy. For the two or three pre vious days we had been having warm refreshing rains, and the grass and grain were already green, and cattle of good quality and fine condition were grazing in the pastures. This of all the valleys in California is the most celebrated for fertility of soil and beauty of scenery. Much of this and, cultivated as well as uncultiva ted, is covered with scattering oaks which add much to its beauty. It is lickly settled, except such portions as are held by speculators, and which at present they refuse to price. The valley i3 well dotted with towns and villages, the principal one being San Jose City, which is fifty miles from San Francisco and contains about 0,000 inhabitants. At Gilroy we took conveyance by stage, our party consisting of eleven passengers, including a state senator, whose rich brogue and voluminous re marks on various topics, plainly indi cated that he was not long since an inhabitant of the " Green Isle." For the first twenty miles we followed the same valley, then crossed the Coast Lange of mountains, by the Pacheco ass, to the San Joaquin valley. The rains had barely reached the eastern, base of these mountains. Be yond could be seen nothing green and the ground was dry and parched. We followed this plain or valley about one hundred miles, and in the whole distance scarcely saw a tree or shrub. Neither did we see any buildings, ex cept at stations where we changed, or occasionally a shepherd's cot in the distance. In some parts of this plain the land is very good, but most of it is low or of inferior quality. In ad dition to the flocks of sheep and bands of horses, there were thousands of cattlo grazing on those plains and most of them were looking fair for the season. There were also many poor, little, ill shaped black hogs, a few antelope, and wild geese and ducks without number. Passing King's River Ferry we stop ped thirty minutes for dinner. It be ing christmas the table was bountiful ly covered with the best the country afforded, prepared and arranged by an experienced Chinese cook. There was neither tea nor coffee, nor cold water on the table ; the only bever age being the best of wine from their native grape, set on in bottles with corks already drawn, and each one was expected to help himself. Wc left feeling very much refreshed and perhaps a little exhilarated. From here to Yisalia, a distance of twenty-five miles, the land is general ly good, covered with wood sufficient for fencing and fuel. With pleasure we there parted with senator , deeming his verdan cy if not vanity in some measure excusable. Knowing hinf to be a cat tle broker who for a few weeks only had laid down his whip to mingle in affairs of Btate, but I apprehend that his constituents will not be so unkind as to again insist upon his breathing the malarious atmosphere of Sacramento. acres of land to endow a college, where the practical education of the industrial classes should be promoted, it is in honor bound to put enough money with it to carry out the intended puprose. In 1804 the war was just closing, and the body of men incorporated as the Agri cultural College were required to raise l '0,000 in a year. It was not raised ; and the state had no right to expect it of those men. The gift cost the state hut little, yet it will not allow its benefits to accrue to the whole mass of the people unless a few men will pay 100,000. The state should endow the college and start it as it has the Reform "School. If it can do credit to itself educating bad boys what glorious results would be seen edu cating the good ones when means are al ready furnished to pay the teachers and buy a farm. The law especially provides that a tenth of the fund may be used to purchase a farm and the interest of the re mainder used every year. After the state had performed its duty iu providing more means there is strong probability that in dividual generosity would be very often applied to the same purpose ; as in Massa- chusetts, where thousands have been given. In Connecticut $140,000, was donated by one man, and in New York $750,000 ; and to every live agricultural college, gifts of stock, tools, plants, collections of curiosi ties, &c, fcc. The question, "how to do more good with the present means," is worthy of con sideration. lo anv of vour readers call to mind any agricultural fact or experiment that has in the last five years been devel oped by this institution? President Angell speaks of those who have been associated with him and have approved the action taken, and especially mentions Senator Morrill. No doubt he desires to see his ideas carried into practice at Burlington, but compare the list of stud ies there, as given by "Orleans County" in his communication, with the studies adopted in Illinois (which is appended to this article) and with Senator Morrill's words in Cougress. When have the farmers been invited to college halls to hear lectures, discussions, and reports of experiments and progress? Never ! But they are going to give a free course in February or March every winter during the next five years if there is a de mand for it ; and they believe there is no demand, when Yermont as well as New England is in a ferment of excitement for agricultural knowledge in school houses, town halls and city halls farmers meet in clubs, associations aud conventions, yet President James B. Angell believes that public opinion is not ready 'for institutes He wrote me this in substance in 1868 and 1869. He tells J. C. Wilder of Charlotte the same, when he comes, full of zeal, from consultations with prominent men in the state, among whom was Senator Morrill, and also L. T. Tucker of South Royalton All favored an institute with lectures, &c, but the wet blankets were thrown by Pres ident Angell and the Professors. Unless I am misinformed, the secretary of the Dairyman's Association, when he was col lecting the talent of the country to speak at St. Albans, went to President Angell and desired him to speak any day of the ses sion upon any topic, but received no en couragement. He or his professors could not address us at our annual meeting of the Orleans Co. Agricultural Society, but he could have been at Glover two days af ter if he had known the college was to have been discussed.

The next day he borrowed the farmers sleigh and went to St. Albans or Swan ton, and returned Monday afternoon, with his own sleigh. While absent his cart had been opened and goods taken therefrom. He made his loss known to the farmer and his wife. Search was at once made by the lady, and one shirt was brought forward which the pedlar said he thought must be his a3 it was like another iu his cart. The farmer had a joung man in his employ who came forward and claimed the garment found as his property aud gave the name of its ma ker ana when he got the materials. The pedlar had his doubts and so he took the gafment and called on the young woman who the young man said had made it, and she honestly told him it was none of her making. Then the young man told the pedlar he was mistaken, it was his mother who made it. Again the pedlar took the garment and called on the mother of the young man and she told him very politely she never made it. Fi nally the young man "owned up " that he did take the garment. The ped lar being postive other goods were missing, offered to settle with the thief for a small sum if he would bring forward the goods, but the thief said the shirt was all he had taken 1 Not to be outwitted, the pedlar and the farmer searched the premises for the missing goods and found some $75 worth secreted iu the hay-mow. The pedlar caused the thief to be arrested and his father and others became bis bail to appear for trial on the 10th inst. There being some "uncertainty in the law," the young thief has very quietly "lelt lor parts unknown." Hence we fear he won't appear for trial. We have givtn facts and suppressed names, for the reason, that the parents and relatives of the young man are among our good inhabitants and feel deeply their humiliation. Richford sentinel. At the State Fair at Burlington, where thousands of farmers assemble, are they invited to the college halls to hold their farmers' meetings, and thus show that the college is the fountain-head of knowledge? No ! The farmers' club ia advertised at the city hall, and when I appeared there to read an essay in 1868, I found it occu pied by a. troupe of theatrical performers, whose door keeper knew nothing about the farmers' club. After considerable inquiry I found a small collection of farmers in an other building, second or third story a. company so small that college pro fessor waa indisposed to address it. No posters told of the place of meeting, and no agricultural college gave enthusiasm to the subject. This college intends to show its usefulness to young men by its instruc tion, lias it advertised its advantages ? The Michigan college advertises as A Lady writes to the London Stan dard saying that scarlet fever and kindred diseases may be treated suc cessfully by means of the Turkish bath. One of her children, aged four, being attacked by scarlet fever, was wheeled in a perambula-.or to a Turkish bath and was much tetter when she return ed home. For four successive morn ings she underwent the same process, and the progress of the disease was rapid and satisfactory.

Tight Lacing. The Chester cor respondent of the Middlebury Regis ter gives the following account 01 tne death of a young lady in that town from the effects of tight lacing : The cause of the death proves the terrible hold accursed fashion has on the ladies of our day, and among its victims are the pure and good. Tight lacing killed the poor, foolish girl. To such a fearful extent had this prac tice been indulged in, that the ribs were found lapped over one another, and the breast bone was pressed over one lung so that she had entirely lost its use. For several months previous to her death, this one victim has been oblisred to sleep with corsets on and tightened to the last notch, for the loosening gave such pain in the inter nal expansion that she could not bear it. This is but one instance ; we have heard of similar cases within a short time. There is a child not out of Windsor county whose head is flat tened on either side as though a pair of squeezers had been applied to it. and there has. The mother has laced her child into that inhuman shape. Who can tell what misery is caused not to this generation alone, but on, on, by the unwomanly passion for a small waist? Peacham. One of our subscribers in Peacham, who was a boy at the time of which he writes, but remem bers all ahout the cause, sends us the following item of Peacham history, which will be remembered by many people now living iu that town : On Friday, the 8th day of June 1816, snow began to fall in the after noon, and by dark there were several inches of snow oq the ground. A man iu Peacham, named Walker, nearly 80 years old, who resided with hia son. Caleb WaUer, took his grand son, 11 years old, just before sunset, and started after the sheep in the pas ture. The storm increased and the wiQd blew and blinded them so that they lose their way, wandered itito the wilderness, and finally crawled under a tree that had blown up by the roots aud lav there the remainder of the night. The next day the neigh bors all turned out and searched for the lost ones in vain. On the follow? ing day (Sunday) the whole of the male inhabitants of the town over 10 years of age, with many from Cabot, Danville, Barnet and Ryegate, rallied with the full determioatiou to find the lost ones either living or dead. The larae tract of woods convering nearly one quarter of the town of Peacham, was alive with over 1000 people, which was at that time a large pro portion of the male inhabitants of these towns. The lad was found about 12 o'clock M. on the shore of Onion River Pond. He was wild and ran away from the men like a frightened deer. He was soon caught, but could give no correct account of his grand sire's whereabouts. The old gentie man was found soon after, lying in the same place where he had lodged the two preceding nights. hen he laid himself down last, he said he nev er expected to rise again. His feet were frozen so that his toes had to be amputated, but he recovered and lived several years afterwards. Un ion. Caution to Mothers. The death of the little daughter of Mr. Alexan der, recorded in our obituary column thjs week, was a very painful affair. Some seven weeks before her death, the little girl had swallowed a hair pin with which she was at play. She was eating an apple at the time she got choked, and when the mother ran her fintrer into her throat to relieve Cheap Beading ! Good Reading I FARMERS SAVE TOUR MONEY! STANDARD aud STOCK JOUUSAL.

In the post mortem ex amination of the lungs of Miss Brad ley, who died very suddenly on the 25th ult., in consequence (as was sup posed) of a fall on the ice, on the 23d, the lower part of the lungs were found to be ossified to a certain extent, and in a manner never before observed. There were a great number of small bones, the longest about an inch in length, and varying in size and shape. It would be only a slight exaggera tion to say the lung3 were full of them. The immediate cause of death wa3 congestion of lungs, however. Dr. Parker has taken measures to call the attention of eminent medical men to this singular case. Caledonian. A Groton Chap Outdone. A cer tain young man in Groton who ia wont to come shrewd games upon his young friends recently got paid off handsomely by one who has proved himself enough for him. The circum stances were as follows : A young man from Jefferson Hill, Newbury, is in the habit of paying his addresses to a young lady living in Groton, and in the early part of the winter he went to call upon her, carrying along with him a grist, which, when ground, he left at the residence of this shrewd young chap, while he w&3 engaged in the agreeable occupation of courting. The Groton wit assisted by some oth ers emptied the meal out of the bags filled, them again with ashes and so left them. - The young man from Jeff erson LTil returning among the "wee sma1 hours," unsuspectingly loaded his bags iuto his sleigh and then drove home. Upon examining the bass the joke was discovered and much fun en joyed at the expense of our young friend. A notice of the affair was forwarded to the Lyndon paper, and no one enjoyed the fun more than the Groton wit. A few days ago, how ever, the tables were turned, as a box came to our Groton friend by express with $2.10 to pay, which was prompt ly forked over, when the unsuspect ing victim began to examine hia mys terious box which was found to con tain the same article with which he had.fillted the bags. The joke was a rich one for the young folks, and not the slowest to enjoy the sport is the young suitor from Jefferson Hill. I St. Johnsbury Times. his premises.

The "town talk" for the last few days has been the sudden dis appearance of one of our merchants, Mr. Mark Banister, who was owing farmers in this town and merchants in St. Albans and elsewhere $5,000 or more. He has been in the grocery business for the last two years, and has been accustomed to buy butter every week and take it to St. Albans. For some weeks past he has bought butter quite extensively on credit and in some instances has offered as high as 40 cts.. which was two or three cents higher than the market would warrant. On Monday, the 31st ult., he went to St. Albans, as has been his custom on Mondays, to dispose of his butter, and has not since re turned. Inquiry shows that he dis posed of his butter, bought some flour and other groceries, for which he got trusted, and then disappeared. As soon as i: was found that he had decamped, what few goods he had in his grocery, were turned over by his family to one of his creditors. He owes over $3000 to farmers in this town and vicinity for butter, and to merchants in St. Albans and else where $1500 to $2000 for groceries. Mr. Banister has been in business many years in this place, and the fact that everybody wa3 willing to trust him, shows that he has hitherto been considered an honest, reliable man. His whereabouts are unknown. Richford Sentinel. Washixgton, Feb.17.

The income tax is to be reduced, but not abolished. Presi dent Grant and the Administration favor a reduction of the tarriff by $20,000,000 and of the Internal Revenue by $30,000,000!
