COOPKB —MB. COOPER'S REPLY.
The twelfth annual commencement of tbe Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art was celebrated, last week, in tho large hall, which |wns crowded In every part. The exercises were opened with prayer by tbo Rev. F. A. P. P.arnard, D. D., President of Columbia College. Daniel B. Preston delivered the salutatory addresa, on "Science and Invention," and waa followed by Julius Rettig, with an oration, in German, on "Progressive Tele- The financial report was then read by Wilson G. Hunt, tho Treasurer. From Jan. 1, 1870, to Jan. 1, 1871, tho total re ceipts were $45,852.38; expenditures, $47,296.18 ; balance in treasury Jan. 1, 1871, $1,977.50; unpaid loan, $2,000, leaving a deficiency of $23 50. The Secre tary, Abram S. Hewitt, on behalf ot the trustees, made an oral report of the objects and purposes of the Cooper Union. The work of the institution, he said, is based upon sound mathematical training. It deals with young men and women who aro already engaged in some industrial pur suit. During the next year it is proposed to give two lessons an evening, instead of one, as heretofore. A large provision has been made for instruction in art, tho object being to prepare young women to gain a livelihood income ofthe many branches of art for which they are well adapted if pro perly trained. During the past year the reading-room has been a great success, and bas been visited by more than 200,000 persons. The library has grown very slowly, and the first use that will be nia/le of tbe $150, --000 which Mr. Cooper has just given for its increase will be to make a very com plete reference library for all branches r.f science, art and general literaturo. An address was then presented to Peter Cooper on behalf of the graduates and pupils of the Union, in substance aa fol lows: ADDRESS OF THE GRADUATES. Honored Founder and President —We tender you our earnest congratulations that, in the providence of Almighty G'd, your life has been prolonged beyond the ripe age of fourscore years, and that you retain that vigor of body, strength of mind and warmth of heart whicb promise to you many years of usefulness and honor. Your history presents a rounded and com plete record as a mechanic, as a merchant, and as a patriot. Keenly appreciating the great importance of practical scientific j knowledge to tbe industrial masaes, you determined to place such udvantagea with in their reach through a project conceived in youth, cherißhed through thrifty man hood, and consummated in the mellow ness of age. At that periok in life when men enter reluctantly upon untried schemes, and when they cling most tenaci ously to their possessions, you generously consecrate the bulk of the fortune you bad been patiently accumulating for half a century to found the Cooper Union for the advancement of science and art, au insti tution that, in the present and in all after time, shall stand as a workingman'a lega cy to his countrymen, at once "royal in magnitude and beneficent in design." The grand and solid success which has attend ed it in the past will be vastly strengthen ed and extended in tbe future by tbe crowning act of your life—your noble birthday offering of $150,000, to establish, in connection with the institution, a valu able reference and lending library. The Cooper Dnion has lessons for tbo rich as well as for those in the humbler ranks of life. Rising hero in the midst of the metropolis of a continent, it is an "everlasting protest" against the avarice and ambitiou which rear overshadowing fortunes for mere personal gratification. It teaches such how they may become the "masters and not the slaves" of tbeir wealth ; how they may render it an im perishable memorial of their love and a perpetual source of public good ; so that when they shall be seen no more forever in the walks of men, they shall live on, through their benefactions, in tho enbalm ing love and gratitude of mankind. In conclusion, sir, we can but renew our gratulations that you have been spared to see the day that completes, under such promising auspices, the Twelfth Anoual Commencement of an Institution that long years ago rose bofore your vision in distant and shadowy outline ; that you have lived in a period without parallel in the annals of time for that wonderful progress io the industrial arts and physical sciences which heralds the dawn of a brighter era for the toiling millions; and that you have labored so devoutly and effectively for its reali-i --tion. A career so pre-eminently useful and illustrious is the prelude to a fame neither transient nor uncertain. While virtue, patriotism, and philanthrophy are honored on earth and recorded in heaven, your deeds shall- not drop from the memory nor your name fade from the lips of men. In love and gratitude they shall evermore dedicate to you an exalted Btation in the Pantheon where from every age aod clime are enshrined in holy keeping that royal brotherhood—the benefactors of humanity. The following is the principal part of jj.TLY OF MR. COOPEIi. My Young friends— \l I needed any re ward for my humble efforts to benefit my fellow-men, the touching language of your address, and this expression of your affec tion and gratitude, wo.'ii- be ample com pensation for labors howe?ei' exacting and sacrifices however great. While y. , » * child, I learned that the "hand of the dili- I gent maketh rich," and whatever of wealth I have achieved haa been due primarily to habits of patient industry formed at the outset of my career. It did not tako long for me to learn that drunkenness was the parent ofthe larger portion of tbepoveity, vice and crime which afflict the JAmcrican people; and hence, until advancing age seemed to demand moderate stimulants, I carefully avoided alcoholic liquors as the greatest curse of the young, and the most deadly foe to domestic happiness and tho public welfare. 1 always avoided debt, aud endeavored to keep somo ready money ou baud to avail of a favorable opportunity for its profitable use. But I found it far more difficult to learn what I wanted to know, tiaii to be industrious, temperate, and pru dent. Hence 1 decided, if I should pros per in the acquisition ol worldly means, to found an institution to which all young people of the working classes, who de sired to be gcod citizens, aud to rise iv life, could resort, without money aud without price. Providence did bless my efforts; and this institution ia tho result of thia resolution, never lost eight of during a business career of utarly 60 years, in Which I was cheered, comforted, anal lint 1 and encouraged by tlie greatest cf human blessings, a diligent, wise, intustrioua. / tho proper age when, and not liefore, they can see the way clear to a decent and com fortable support; and thus fulfill tha first law of nature, with a high.and holy Bern. of its happiness, and its duties,the greatest and most serious in the path of life. Love and duty I have ever found to bo the pass words of all that ia true and noble in life, and when they are separated, the fires on the family altar die out, and life loses all its charms, never to be compensated by the falso jewels which are often worn in tlie public gazo. But, having also acquired what ifl re garded a? riches, have I earned tbe right, by the use I havo made of them, to give any advice or speak a word of encourage ment to others, who, by the will of God, are entrusted with the great responsibility of wealth ? Whether I have this right or not, I feel impelled to record my convic tfoo, dorived from personal experience, that tho rich man who regards his wealth as a sacred trust to be used for tho welfare of his fellow man, will surely derivo more true onjoymcut from it in this world tban from tho most lavish expenditure on mere personal enjoyments and social display. I do not pretend to prescribe any standard of expenditure for othera, and 1 am quite ready to subscribe to the doctrine that a just and faithful trustee should be liberally paid for his services, and should not bo re stricted iv the reasonable gratification of his desires, so long as the rights of others are not thereby infringed ; and I desire to give the fullest recognition to the eacrod ness oi private property, and tho conser vation of capital, as for tho best interests of society and all tho members thereof ; but I cannot shut my eyes to the fact that tho production of wealth is not the wotk of anyone man, and tho acquiaition of great fortunes is not possible without the co-operation of multitudes of .men, and that, therefore, tbe individuals to whose lot these fortunes fall, whether by inheri tance, or the laws of production and trade, should never losa sight of the fact, that as they hold them only by the will of society, expressed in statute law, so they should administer them as truatees for the benefit of society, as inculcated by the moral When rich men are thus brought to re gard themselves as truatees; and poor men learn to be industrous, economical, temperate, self-denying, and diligent in the acquisition of knowledge, then the de plorable strife between capital and labor, tending to destroy their fundamental, ne- I cessiry, and irrefragible harmony will li cease ; aud the world will no longer be af flicted with such unnatural industrial con flicts, as wo havo seen during the past cen tury in every quarter of the civilized globe; and latterly, on so great a scale in this county, _rraying those, whom naturo in- I tended to be firm allies and inseparable friends, into hostile camps in which tbe great law of love and mutual forbearance is extinguished by selfish passions. The law of force, whether expressed iv trade associations, preveuting other men from exercising their inalienable right to labor where they can find work, or in com binations of capitalists, seeking by lock outs to close up the avenues of labor, are equally reprehensible, and should never be allowed under any provocation whatever to take the place of the Divine law, "What soever ye would tha. men should do uuto I you, do ye even so unto Ihem ;" nor will I such an unnatural and criminal substitu tion ever be possible; if poor men will re member that it is the duty, and therefore I the right, of every poor man to strivo to I becomo rich by honest, intelligent, and patient labor ; and if rich men will remem oer thai tbe possession of wealth, which ia tho fruit of tho general effort, confers no right to ita use, as an engine of oppression or coercion upon any class which ia con- I cerncd in its production. Lot me then record that, duriug a long life passed iv active business, I have never known any but evil consequences to all I classes, and especially to the inuoceut, to result from strikes, lock-outs, or other forc ible measures, deaigoed to interfere with the steady and regular march of produc tive industry, and I feel justified in an earnest appeal to both workmen and capi talists henceforth to regard each other as equals and friends; and to imitate the great example, so reccutly set by the en lightened governments of Great Britain j aud the United States, in tho submission of iheir differences to arbitration ; and not I i to expect to reform social evils by comiii j nations designed to forco either side into I tho acceptance of unpalatable terms, by I tbe stern logic of starvation and iudiscrim- Beform, to bo of any permanent value, must be based upon persoual virtue, uot I force ; and it seems to me that tho milieu- j nium will not bo far off. when each mdi- I vidual shall set about reforming himself I rather than society, and conforming his life to the great law of loving God and his fellow-men. While I thank you, my young friends, (I had almost said my childrou.) for this manifestation of your respect and grati tude, so touching because so full of love, I let me ask you to accept of this feeble but heartfelt reply, as a kind of last will aud testament of the garnered experience of ao old friend, whose days are almost num bered, and who askß ouly to be remem bered as "one who lovea his fellow-men." ——i ~, —- Free Trade England loses yearly people enough to plant a State. . Home consumption of home manufac tures ia an unfailing teat of prosperity. A people cannot make themselves in vulnerable by agriculture alone. risHIS IS TO OIVK NOTICE: !

There are vital questions enough is and the opposition without seeking ere all good men should stand on ng popular Education to be the one ant of our State and of the country, ;ive large space to its advocacy. To thoroughly all the children of tbe mid be the supreme and paramount legislation. To this sacred task we c our paper. We shall plead the the little ones who have no voice; o pleading, we plead for the future of in whatever can make her great and ancial condition of the country, and ■ of the South, will not be neglected, icate a financial policy which will :k again to the South more than its lerity. We are for the encourage i varied homo industry. We are for king, under a system which makes isolutely safe and accessible to busi at living rates. We are for such a system as will preserve tbe public thout imposing undue burdens upon te people. Realizing the vast importance of mechanical nd manufacturing industry, we shall labor leartily for the development of these interests, c shall give accurate and detailed inform* on of our vast natural wealth in mines, for sts, water-powers and hsberies. Believing in the "harmony of interests," we lall endeavor to show bow fully each is de lendent upon the prosperity of all; that labor I nd capital, employer and employee, Bhould c allies and friends, enriching each other by raternal co-operation. ] Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a Vir inia farm, which we leave lovingly and re» uctantly for awhile, we have learned some hing of what wide and varied knowledge, what patience, economy and administrative ability it takes to make a farmer. We shall give large space to Agriculture and Horticul ture. In conclusion, we will say that we will unite cordially and earnestly with men of all parties to remove every obstacle to tho moral, intel lectual and physical progress of our State and ation. There are thousands of noble young men and women in the State full of grand apacity, now dormant and wasting. The old Commonwealth is .ounding tho drum-beat to < uty. Let them shake off tho night-mare of onservatism and old traditions, and march bravely to tho work ol tbis new day. So shall hey make the future of Virginia worthy of tae past, and themselves worthy of a great an- BEPUBLI.AN national platform. the National Republican party of the Uuittd Btat«a, assembled In National Convention in tho city of Chicago, on tbe 21st day of Slay, 1566, make tb* ol'owlng declaration of principlea : 1. We congratulate tho country on the assured lucccaa of tho reconatruction policy of Uougreaa, aa evinced by ths adoption, in tho majority of Iho Statos lately ia rebollion, of couatitutiona aecuring equal civil and political righta to all; and it laths duty ofthe Government to suatainthoße iuatitutioni and tn prevent the people of auch Status from being remitted to a state of anarchy. •_ The guaranty by Cougreaa of equal suffrage to all loyal men at the South was demanded by every consideration of public safety, of gratitude, and of Instce and must be maintained; while the question of suffrage in all the loyal Statea properly belong! to the people of thoao States. 3. We denounce all forma of repudiation aS a na tional crime ; anil tbo national honor requires the payment of tho pubtio indebtedness in the utter- I nioßt good faith to all creditora at homo and abroad, uot only according to letter, but tho spirit of tbe I laws under which it waa contracted. 4. It ia due to the labor of tlie nutic- that taxa- I tion Bhould be equalled, aud reduced aa rapidly us 1 the national lattn will permit. 6. Tbe uutional debt, contracted aa it baa been for the preaorvatlou of the Union for all timo to come, ahouid be extended over a fair period for rodemption; and it is the duty ol Oougresß to roduco tho rate of interest thereon, whenever it,can be honestly done. 6. That the beat policy to diminish our burden of debt is to ao improve our credit that capitalists will I seek to loan ua money at lower rates of intereat than 1 wo now pay, and must continuo to pay ao long as re- I palliation, partial or total, open or covert, ia threat ened or auapected. 7. Tho Government of ttie Uniiod Statos ahouid be adniiniatered with the strictest economy; and the corniptioiiß which have been so shamefully nursed 1 and f_*tored by Andrew .lohuacu call louJly for radi cal retorm. ... 8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic death of Abraham Lini oln, and regret the accession to the Presidency of Andrew Johusou, who haa acted treacherously to tbe people who elected bim aud tlie cause ho was pledged to support; who haa nsiiipod high legislative aud Judicial fuuctioua; wbo haa re fused to execute the lawa; who has used hia I igh office to iuduco other officers to ignore and violate the lawa; who has employed hia executive powers to render Insecure the property, the peace, liberty aud life of the citizen ; who haa abused tbe pardon ing power; who haa denounced the uational legisla ture bs uueouatituttonal ; who haa persistently and corruptly reaiated, by every meana iv his power, every proper attompt at tho reconatruction ol the States lately in rebellion; who has perverted t_e public patronage into au eugfoe of wholesale cor ruption; and who has been justly impeached for high crimoa and misdemeanora, and proporly pro nounced gul'.ty thereof by the vote of thirty tive Senatora. 9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other Ku rop'eau powera, that because a mau ia once a aiibjoct ho is always ao. must be reaiated at every huzard by the Uuitod Statos, aa a relic of feudal times, not au thorized by tho lawa of latlooa.and atwar with our uational honor and independence. Naturalized cit izena aro entitled to protection in all their rights ot citizenship, as though they wore native-born; and no citizeu of the Uuitod Statea, native or natural ized, must be liable to arreat and Imprloonment by auv foreign power for acta dove or words spoken In thia country ; and, if ao arrested aud imprisouod, it ia tbe duty ot the Government to iuterfoto iv hia be -10. Of all who wero taithiul lv the trials of the late war, there wero uouo eutitled to more eapecial honor than the brave aoldiera aud seamen who en dured the bards-ipa of campaign and cruise, and im perilled their lives iv the eervice ofthe country; the bounties and pensions provided by the lawa for these brave defenders of ibe nation are obllgatiouß never to be forgotten; the wiilowa aud orphan! of the gallant dead are llio wauls of Ihe people—a sa cred legacy bequeaihrnl to the nation's protecting care, . ~ . , .. . . 11 Foreign immigration, winch in Ihe past nil added ao much to the wealth, devi-li.pement, aud re aourrea, aud increase of power to Una republic, the asylum ofthe oppressed ol all natlonß, should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and just policy. IU This convention declares itself in sympathy with all oppressed peoples struggling for their rights. 13. Thst we highly commeud tne spirit ot But* uaulmlty aud forbearance wi«h which men who have aorvedin the rebellion, but who now frankly and houoßtly co-operate with us lv rcßtoriug Ibe peace of tho country and reconstructing the routh crn Bale governments upon the basis of impartial juaticoaud equal rights, are received back Into the communion ol tho loyal people; aud we tavor tho removal of the disqualinctlona and reatnotlona im posed npou the late rebola in the same measure as ihe spirit of dißlo> alty will dieout, aud as may bo con sistent wiih the safety of the loyal poopie. 14 That we recognize tbe groat principlea laid down in tlie Immortal Declaration of ludipeu.l. lv as the true foundation of democratic governuieut and we liail with gludneas every effort toward uiak mg these principles a living reality on avary ■-• -b i olooflhP treaty between th* United States ef America and the Kansas tribe of Indians, conclu ded October 6, 1859, ratified by the Senate June 27 1860, and proclaimed by tlie President Novem ber 17 1800, and acting under the diioctlon of the Secretary of the Interior, 1 hereby invite sealed projwsals for ihe purchase of all ihe lawrs litre tnrifter (loseribed, to wit; liRSI.HIWION OF I.AXOS KANSAS TRrST I,A.\DS.

STARKE'S _DIXIE PLOW. BY INVITATIONJOF MR. P. 0. WILLIAMS, OF the county of Nottoway, a number of gen tlemen assembled at his residence Saturday, Decem ber 10, to test by practical experiment the compar- Elue of the DIXIE PLOW, manufactured by fc Co., and any other that might enter_tbe I ;om petition, ows were taken to the field at half past two ie following gentlemen acting as judges : F. J. B. Williams, Robert Scott, Jas. 8. GIL 'un. T. Christian, Richard Epes, Dr. Darring, Graves, Walton Sydnor, F. U. Williams, a. i aud J. M- Hurt. Mr. 8. Graves and Walton irere tbe principal plowmen, Mr. W. Bydnor working the Watt plow and S Graves the Dixie both of whom handled them with masterly skill aid j success i The plows entered wore the Dixie two horse right j and left-hand plows, and the Aatt two-borse left hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam of tbe Dixie right-hand broke in two and we* laid ■wide, tho contest being narrowed to the Watt left hand and Dixie left-hand. The soil first selected was a stubble loam without soil; but as the plows were new, and did not turn in consequence of the roughooss of tbe castings, after a short trial it was derided to take them into another field where tbe soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with a timo thy sod covo'ed with vegetation and with straw. The plows hore performed their work admirably, cutting and turning clear without choking. As the Dixie was a new comer, as the contest I waxed warm most of the judges took hold of It to | teet personally its practical working. While there ts no intention to do injustice to any, as tetther party had agent or representative present, and Loth plows did well, yet the trial, with the award of tbe judges, Is deemed of sufficient importance to the in terest of sgiicultuie to justify its publication. The award of the judges was unanimously in favor of the Dixie on thn following grounds: Ist. It cut a deeper furrow. 2d. It cut a wider furrow. 3d. It more effectually Inverted the sod. 4th. The draft seemed to be no greater. I>tb. The mechanical arrangement for altering cut was deemed more simple and efficient. At the conclusion of the trial some of the judges were so pleaded as to determiue to order them for tb- ir own iho. J. M. HURT, Secretary. I certify th .t the above wse sent to the Richmond "Whig" for publication by myself; that I am not 1 acquainted with Mr. Starke; that ho had nevar seen the paper and knew nothing of Its contents, and was In no wlso a party to the tffol of the plows alluded January 7, IR7I.

I do not believe In plow trials made by the manu facturers themselves, but hope that every fanner wi'latonco make a full tr'al ofthe DIXIE with every plow he can find, and buy tbat which does the best work.
