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 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.

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.

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.
