PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. We print to-day the new circular of this noble and rapidly growing society for the •Imm union of agriculturalists and growers of fruits and flowers. As we havo before stated, tho Order was instituted by William Saunders, Ksq., the Superinten dent of the Experimental Gardens at- Washington, and one of tho most skill ful and experienced practical horticultural ists in the United States. It is designed to unite both sexes and people, in country and city alike, who have a taste for rural pursuits, in a society for mutual protection and improvement. There is just enough of secrecy in it for protection. Its ritual, prepared by Mr. Sawders, is vory beautiful and impressive, tending to elevate and purify social life.—. This Order should be warmly welcomed by all who would see the young people of tho country grow up with the pure and virtu ous, with elevated tastes and sound minds in sound bodies, which tho intelligent study of horticulture suggests. Enquiries can be sent to Mr. Kelly, sec retary, at Washington. Col. D. S. Curtis, the general deputy at Washington, (formerly editor of the Wis consin Farmer and a veteran agricultural writer), will visit any placo in Maryland and Virgiuia where he may be invited to organize the Order. We urgently suggest to all our young people, especially those who have farms or gardens.or who cultivate house-plants even, to unite themselves with this excellent society. ,*, LABOR AND CAPITAL. NO NATURAL ANTAGONISM BETWEEN THEM. For the purpose of convenient distinc tion, and not because there exists such un absolute lino of demarkation in roal life, we may assume that there are three distinct stages of capital in the United States: the capital of physical labor, the capital of mental labor, and the capital of accu mulated or capitalized labor. Between these three classes of capitalists there is . no natural or necessary antagonism ; all of them are interested in the security of life and properly, in the enforcement of con tracts, in the freedom of makiug contracts, in the complete liberty of changing voca tiou and investments, in general education, and the peaceful and economical adminis tration of public affairs. The capitalist of physical labor bas for sale his day's work; the capitalist of mental labor his professional skill, and the capitalist of reserved labor the accumula tion which either he or his ancestors have acquired. Sometimes the ono and some times the other of these classes receive the highest sharo of reward. It frequently happens in our Western territories, or io our mining districts, that physical labor is in so great demand that lawyers and doc tors etigago side by side with ordinary la borers in physical work, because it brings by far the highest reward. At other times the capital represente.d by physical labor is so abundant, and the reserved and ac cumulated capital is in such great demand, that it receives the lion's share of the re ward. STATEMENT OF THE LABOB BKKORM. The main questions which an inquiry into the labor problem suggest, are two fold: First, how can tho capitalist of a day's labor, comprising as it does the largest class of our population, receive in exchange the greatest amount of comfort, aud the greatest share of the profit. Sec ondly, how can he rise most easily and speedily to the condition of a capitalist of reserved labor, or a capitalist of skillful mental acquirement!?. These questions are of the most vilal importance to the progress of the world. Tney aro so profound and interwoven with the fabric of society, that they require tl tl most earnest, conscientious, pains-taking, impartial, and non-partisan investigation. They cannot be solved by the cheap rheto ric of the political agitator, nor by intui tion, nor by the unlettered and untutored •uggestions of any class, looking upon them from a partial standpoint. And if the words of counsel which we are about to present to our fellow-laborers do not clear away all the difficulties surrounding the subject, we know, at least, tbat our suggestions aro the result, both of earnest thought, and of a sincere desire to level up our physical laborers without levelling down any other class. Elevate, educate, make moral and free the basis of society, and not only is the safety of the State en sured, but all other classes will be pros perous and contented. THERE IS NO PERMANENT LABORINB CLASS. The assumption that there is a laboring class, or inferior caste, having separate and antagonistic interests, which descends from father to son, and from which no one can rise or change, is a monarchical idea, im ported from abroad and inapplicable to our country. And to prevent the forma tion of a permanent laboring class, as dis tinguished from a professional or a capi talist class, ought to be the object of earnest solicitude with every American statesmau and thinker. a A Vermouter has had three dollars dam ages awarded him for beiog butted over a fence by a neighbor's bull. The smalluess of the sum is due to the plaintiff's avowal that be was trying to get over the fence as quickly as pos.ible, so that the bull only helped him in carrying out an intention conceived of his own free will. » The Common Council of Chicago has ordered the lax levied iM tho grave of .Sen ator Douglas to be paid out of tho general fund, and the sale advertisetl by the col lector will not take place. Horace Greeley and the South. We oopy the following excellent article from that admirable journal, The Turf, Field, and Farm, ami hoartily endorse its sentiments, and especially its deserved tri bute to onu of our noblest citizens whom our children will appreciate and honor : Mr. Horace Greeley, the ablo editor of the Tribune, is to deliver tho opening ad dress at the t-ccond annual Texas State ' Fair, which c miineuces Muy 22. at Hous ton. To hear the exponeut of Radicalism r speaking to the people who once so fierce .ly fought for the tri-barred flag ; to behold them listening to tho words of advice and encouragement falling from the lips ofthe 1 man who waged such a relentless war 1 against shivery, will indeed be a scene • highly emblematic of peace. i The war lias mado us more tolerant of each other, and Mr. Grcoley will now re ceive a warmer welcomo from Texas than " he would havo received before the hosts in I gray and the armies in blue mot and proved their valor on many sanguinary I battle-fields. We learn to respect these with whom we fight, provided that tbe ' fight is a stubborn and manly one. The North now .admits that tho South is cour ageous, and the South no longer sneers at Northern valor. The better classes of the sections respect each other and this respoct 'is a bond which gives greater strength to ; the nation. Though Radical in some of ' his views, Mr. Greeley has always been ) sincere and consistent. He is no hypo . crite. He speaks plainly the honest senti ments of his heart; and in the hour of 1 tilumph ho does not forget the principle 1 for which ho fought. Mr. Greeley spoke earnestly against slavery, when to do so was to bring down upon him misrepresentation, ridicule, aud abuse ; but when slavery disappeared with ' tbo smoke that cleared from tho battle • fields, ho was satisfied, and held out the 1 olive branch to the Southern people. And i he has stood his ground as firmly after the fight as he stood it in tho thickest of the ' battle. Ho has refused to go to revenge i ful extremes. As he once stoutly pleaded . for the abolition of slavery, so he now 8 pleads for amnesty for the Southern peo ple. Principle is his guidiug star, and it 8 is a principle which blends humanity with justice. He has stood the fiery test, and the SouLheru pooplo have lound him con sistent and honest; therefore, they will extend an earnest welcomo to him whin he goes among them. The Texas Association did well in send ing him an invitation to come to Houston i and deliver the opening address at their , State fair. They proved, by their action, t that in the great causo of agriculture, they could rise above narrow partisanship, aud ' listen to words of wisdom, no matter from ' whose lips the words might fall ; and they ■ also have demonstrated that they have i not bridged tho war gulf with the blind ! prejudices of tho past. We aro glad tbat Mr. Greeley accepted tho invitation, for in ' going to Texas he will see with his own > eyes what th« peoplo are doing, and on • his return to New York can candidly toll us what progress they are making under the new regime. Tho Southern press speak with the ' greatest kindness of Mr. Greeley's pro ■ posed visit to Texas. They urgo that he be treated with marked courtesy wherever .he may go, that genial hocpitality stretch , out her broad arms and make him her dis tinguished guest, indued. Here is an ex -1 tract from the New Orleans Picayune ■ which clearly illustratos the prevailing i sentiment: It is especially in his capacity as a jour« nalist that we hope to see due consideration 3 paid to him by the members of our profession. He ia a veteran, an able and very potent chief in the ranks of our profession, with few peers in capacity, and no superiors in the influence Ihe wield*. The journal which his talent created bas been a powerful engine of publio opinion for thirty years. Aside from his polit < ical essays, Mr. Greeley has written a great deal on all manner of subjects, advocating reforms, advance* and improvement*, and I pioneering all forms of progress. It is per» baps not going too far to say tbat he bas impressed public opinion more than any living American journalist or writer. Dissenting totally from some of his political, ' financial and commercial theories, and disapv proving the tone of bis journal on many other tban political themes, we have yet found much tbat was entertaining and instructive in the oolumns of tbe Tribune. Its tone baa mode . rated and improved within the past few months, and Mr, Greeley's observations and > impressions while visiting Texas may induce L bim to think better of our good people than he ba* ever done before. s Aside from other considerations, Horace i Greeley deserves respect for excellent qualities of mind and heart He is industrious, method. i ioal, punctual and diligent ia business, abste mious and a foe to luxuries, a hater of shams, , rogues and hypocrites, impulsive in generosi -1 tr, a steadfast friend, gentle and kind in so f cial relations, and much esteemed even by ■ those wbo ridiculo some of his peculiarities. The South is making great progress in the field of agriculture, aud agriculture is I a vaßt field in which to work. It is tbe starting point of civilization, the solid base ,of all wealth and national strength. The . intelligent or artistic development of agri cultural resources gave wealth to the 1 North, and it will give a like prosperity to the South. That tbe South is making progress in this direction, is evidenced by the interest taken in fairß of an agricul -1 tural nature. Let the people continue in dustrious, as they are now, and triumph 1 will surely bo theirs in the end. As pa f tient men and women with the light of liberal opinion dawning upon them, we ; trust that they will weigh well the words that Mr. Greeley may speak to them. , i ,ai —— Terrible Accident. —There occurred t on Thursday afternoon,, at Sand Patch ) tunnel, on the lino of the Pittsburg aud ; Connellsville railroad, a distressing acci , dent, by which two men were instantly , crushed to death and seven others moie or less injured. The Cumberland (Md.) News ■ says: The tunnel is being arched, and as it was only temporarily pierced for one track, it is necessary to widen it as tbe arching' , progresses to a width admitting of a double track. Men aro therefore employed to en large the tunnel, and much of the work is i facilitated by blasting. iOn Thursday afternoon, shortly after a . blast had been set off, and whilst a lot of men were engaged in clearing away the debris, a portion of the roof, several tons 'in weight, supposed to havo been loosened - by tbe recent blast, suddenly fell upon a - party of men there at work, burying be t ueath the rocky mass two of the unfortu nates, instantly crushing out their life, and ' mangling their bodies shockingly. Seven other of the workmen there at the instant , providentially escaped with their lives, but were more or less injured. Ono of 1 them had his head scalped, and another a ! hand maßhcd and severed from the arm. The names of the meu killed are William ' Welch and John Courtney. Both were singlomen. i _ «*> Present prophecies from Delaware and Maryland are that the peach crop will i reach 3,600,000 baskets—about half a ■ million more than were gathered in 18C0, I which was the champion peach year. ■ Fr, m 1)00,000 to 400,000 new trecß have beeu planted this season. • " THE WEEKLY SFATE JOURNAL.
