Being one of those farmer's sons who would have an education if I could, I want to bay a word on the education of farmer's Sons generally. It is quite common for them to be tijwkcn of as verdant, frlovenifh, etc. adjectives which conic doubly cut ting whn those to whom they are applied feel them to be true to a cer tain degree, yet are ignorant of the way in which they might improve. The feeling that this is the inevitable result of life on the farm, has done much to mate the profession unpopu lar, and has had no email influence in nending those who were born there, and were well fitted to conduct its business successfully, away to the village or city, to engage in some thing that would at least free them from this fault , Why nH'd a farmer's son, any more than any other, be an ignoramus or a clown, even though he cannot get more than a common school educa tion? Nearly all can get this; and Then the same amount of application that would )e necessary to make it complete under the most favorable circumstances, would do very much towards it, even iu their homes, in the spare hour they luifrht find, which arc so generally wasted. Hooks and pajK-rs can be obtained at a rate that is, to some extent, within the reach of all. Vet it is not enough to rvad, siniplj ; it must be with eonie dcCnite purpose. There are cords of books and papers that leave one worse than they found him, and farmers arc the very ones who encourage their pro duction by buying them, these pa-. jxts, from the character of their sto ries, do more harm among farmers' children than anywhere lc, because they do not have enough society most of the time to counteract their influence. The tendency toward light reading is so strong as to produce permanent injury. The country is flooded with stories. They come in books, magazines, and papers, end are read by farmers' families general ly, with far too little discrimination. The effect is to destroy all taste for more solid reading that requires a Rtronger effort of the mind, and im parts more valuable information. Vet this solid reading that makes think ing necessity, should 1m? the ground work upon which to build an educa tion, and the lighter kinds should on ly be used as a recreation. There is much of it that should not be read at alL Most of th farmers with whom I am acquainted arc comparatively un educated, and from not having its ad vantages themselves, fail to appreci ate its valu to their children, who are growing up to Ell the places of their parents with very few ideas beyond the business of the farm. It is this willful blindness to their own true in terests that makes so large number of fanners incapable of taking a higher position in society. You mutt talk to them of farmine or ther arc not in terested. Their minds narrow down to their own-petty interests, and they wear themselves out to accomplish what an educated mind would do with case. Many of them are not consci ous of their own defects, and are the most difficult to get along with in the town or church, because their minds work perpetually in the same old rut. Farmers do not think enough. They use their muscles more freely than they do their intellects, which are weak for want of exercise. If they cannot get this at the right time ana in me usual pmcc unucr inMruc- ; tors, inev ougui to uave a, cour- oi reading that would produce a similar effect unon the mind, and fit them not I only to form, but alao to express opin- 4 , ions upon those questions sns that concern them in common with others. This 1 would give a new rest to life, and would tit them to do their own work better and easier, while as citizens they would far excel their present reputation. A kos. The Value of I'uMrKixs. Last year I raised twenty ox-cart loads of pumpkins with corn from an acre. The cart would hold forty bushels of potatoes. I consider them a valuable food for stock, taking into considera tion how cheaply they can b raised. I undertook to dry in my apple dry house some for market, and was of fered five cents per pound. I found that a green pumpkin weighing from fifteen to twenty pounds would make about one pound of wall-dressed dry pumpkin, and that it would pay bet ter to dry them for my hogs (as it could bo dona very cheap) than it would to sell. I soaked the dry pumpkin in milk and fad the same to the hogs they gained fast I also dried quite an amount and barreled it to feed them with this summer. I fd my sherp upon the green ones two months, and it did very much toward fattening forty, which I 6old for mutton, and the "forty which I wintered never did better. I commenced to feed my cattle in September, end fed some every day until February. It saved a vast amount of feed. I aim plant ing but a small piece of corn, and wish to raise a large amount of pump kins, so I plant them with my Early Rose potatoes ; their tops die early, which will let in the sun and give pumpkins a chance to grow. Cor. Maine Farmer. Sakdspocts ix Nevada. For sev eral hours there were visible from Tirrinia Citv. Nevada, on Twentv- one milt Pesart, five or six tall col umns of eand, sucked up by as many whirlwinds. At sea, these would have been waterspouts, but upon the desert they were onlv what we call sandspouts. The columns ajteared to be ten feet in diameter and one thousand feet iu height Although they waltzed about over the plain for two or three Lours, they never came together or never lost their cylindrical from, and when they did go down they went down at once, all falling to eether. These sandspouts, says a local paper, are well known to all old pros pectors and seem to indicate a change of weather. We have frequently seen in the Forty mile Desert, east of the lower Sink of tho Carson, not less than ten or fifteen of these tall sand columns moving about over the plains at the same time. It is seldom that they come together, but when they do they dart forward like two flashes of lightning, and an explosion like a heavy blast ends all, and the two columns of sand at once fall to the ground. Those who have not been upon our great deserts and who have never witnessed these grand sand spouts or the wonderful mirages, have but little idea of the romantic grandeur of these apparently unin teresting wastes of sand. A day or two ago the steam saw null or Messrs. A. A. Barker & Son known as the "California" mill, loca- tep south of Ebcnsburg, Cambria county, was discovered on fire. The fames bad made such progress that any effort to check them would have been useless. How the fire origins ted u a mystery and oai only be oon jecturedL WES DELL PHILUrt. A ranstlr Review of the PoIlUral Sls IIb Fhtlllps for !. Wfcy he Aheald be Mappvrted racralni; 4iroeleT ernel Hmur. ..Wendell Fhillips has written a long letter to certain colored citizens of Boston, in which he gives his reasons for supporting General Grant and op posinn Mr. Greeley. We offer th fol lowing extracts: Of course, the first thought that oc curs to you and me just now is, that one of your best, ablest, and moet watchful friends. Mr. Senator Sum ner, advises you to. vote for Horace Greeley, and believes that your rights will be safe in his keeping. I touch with reverent hand everything from Mr. Sumner.. I can never forget his measureless services to the anti-slavery cause and to your race. When ever I read his words, I read them overshadowed by the memory of his early and entire consecration to the services of impartial liberty of that real that has never flagged that watchfulness which has seldom been deceived of that devotion which has so rarely shrunk from any sacrifice which no opposition could tire and no danger appal. From such a counsel lor i venture to differ with great reluc tance, and only after mature delibera tion. I should hesitate to publish my dissent if I were not sure that I was right, and that he was wrong that the occasion was very important and his mistake one which leads to fatal results. You remember that in 186S I em phatically denied General Grant's fit ness for the Iresidcncv. Derided by the Republican press, I went from city to city protesting against his election. Iu private with Mr. Sumner and oth ers, I argued long and earnestly against the risk of putting such a man into such an office. At the same time they saw only his great merit, and supported him heartily. The defects of his administration are no surprise to me. I may say, without boasting, that I prophesied those defects. I do not wish to hide them to-day. I en tirely agree with Mr. Sumner as to the grave fault and intolerable inso lence of the administration in the Santo Domingo matter. I think the frequent putting of relatives into office highly objectionable, and the sad ca reer of Webster is warning enough against any man in public life ventur ing to accept gifts from public men. 1 hose and other defects are no sur prise to me. The South has often announced in the last instance by the lips of Jef ferson Davis that the cause was not lost, and must be won by getting possession of the Government and leaving us in the opposition. Such is the present plot. That Mr. Greeley sees it would never prevent his aid ing it That Mr. Sumner does sec it is no matter of profound astonishment At such a moment the regular Repub lican party becomes again the accept ed and onlv iastance of resistance. and Grant represents loyalty as Lin cola did in 1861. I do not care for his defects, wcra they ten times great er. Chatham and Junius rightfully forgot even the infamy of Wilkins when he stood the representative and symbol of the rights of a British sub ject Kven if I accepted Air. Sum ner s portrait or 1 resident Grant which in some senses is true, but in no sense is the whole truth I should still vote for him against a rebellion at the ballot-box, to which disloyalty rives all the strength, and childish j. a th charBCtor, - . . To !' lh subtest faith in the and l'roiesiauons oi oppcrncaus p-s ?n,!-ls' 7 w gn ', " , " exception of Mr. Sumner, no lead- rag KepuWican docs really put any faith in those pretensions. Theirs is not a case of delusion. They arc, hypocrites, not dupes. They know wvll the plot, and lor the sake of of fice are willing to help it and risk the consequences. They know that Mr. Greeley s election means the negro surrender to the hate of the Southern States, with no interference from the nation in his behalf; that it means the constitutional amendments neu tralised by a Copperhead Congress, our debt tampered with, and our bond falling 30 per cent in every market. The Democratic millionaire who is willing to risk this has al ready '"hedged." He holds millions of Confederate bonds, and is plotting to make o them more than enough to pay four times over all that he lotcs on the national securities, and then safely laugh at the small bond holders he has duped. If General Grant is set aside, who is offered us in his place? Horace Greeley. I need not tell you, my friends, what Horace Greeley is. We abolitionists know him too well in the weary years of our struggle. He had enough of dear moral vision to see the justice of our cause. But he never had emirago enough to confess his faith. If events had given him the courage he never would have had principle enough to risk anj-thing for an idea. A trimmer by nature and purpose, he has abused even an Amer ican politician's privelege of trading piiaciples for kuccchs. But for lack of ability he would have been the chief time server of his age. I never knew till now any of his ulogists so heed less and undiseriminating as evjen to claim that he was a sincere man. As for his honesty, for twenty years it has been the by word with us that it would be safe to leave your open purse in the same room with him ; but as for any other honesty, n.o one was ever witless enough to connect the idea with his name. Mr. Sumner trusts him as a '"life time abolitionist" This is certainly news to you and me. You and I know well, when abolitionist was a term of reproach, how timidly he held up his skirts about him, careful to put a wide distance between him self and us. You will find few work ing abolitionists, who stood in the trenches from 1840 to I860, willing to trust the negro race to Horace Gree ley. I can remember the day when he and his fellow-Republicans quot ed our criticisms upon them as cer tificates that they were no abolition ists. We can give him just such a certificate now with a clear consci ence. Judged by the files of the Tribune itself, there never was an hour when Horace Greeley could have been trusted with the care of the black man's rights.. No man has known better than he how to manu facture political and pecuniary suc cess ont of the convictions of other men. For himself he never had a conviction. Men contrast his former praise of General Grant with his fault-finding now; and neither his praise nor his blame ia of any ac count ; neither comes from the heart ; both are measured and weighed out with shrewd calculation for effect Examine the files of the Tribune You will 6ee that whenever men's convictions on any subject have got a keen edge, Mr. Greeley was always ready to blunt them with a compro mise. He is only acting now the text he has always played. Men augh when some stirring and loyal sentence is quoted from the Tribune of 1863 and 1864, nnd Horace Gree ley immediately proves that he did not write it, but you and I know that three-quarters of tho loyalty of the Tribune was smuggled into it in his absence, or in spito of him. If his letter to Mr. Lincoln, during the dark years of 1862 and 1863, arc ever published, the world will see, what vou and I have always known, that he could hardly have aided the Con federacy more unless he had enlisted in its Cabinet If as Mr. Sumner says, Mr. Greeley is a "lifetime abolitionist" how comes it till within three years Mr. Sumner hardlyever got a kind word and never had any hearty support from the Tribune t How often have Mr. Sum ner's friends heard him expatiate at length on this point ? On the floor of Congress he has stood for many a year tho incarnation of the anti- slavcry movement But he has again and again complained that instead of giving him any support tho Tribune has constantly belittled his efforts and Iiut obstacles in his way, cheering lis opponents and carpi ug at his measures, or at best damning them with faint praise. My recollection of these well-grounded complaints is so fresh that I look at Mr. Sumner's picture of Mr. Greeley with unfeigned astonishment. Even the supiKised conversion of the Southern Rebels is not so wonderful as that of the Trib une into a supporter of Charles Sum ner. We put aside with scorn it deserves the insult it implied in preaching to us forgivness and conciliation. An dersonvillo and Libby prison are still living horrors. Besides the thousands who were starved there, hundreds still drag out dreary lives in our streets, poisoned all through bv that dread cruelty. The graves of seven white native Georgia loyal white men, ruthlessly shot down in the streets, arc hardly yet covered. The first-born of a hundred thousand households are still freshly mourned. Meanwhile thanks to the unparal lellcd mercy ,thc unutterable generosi ty of the nation ninetv-nine out of every hundred . Confederate soldiers enjoy to-day all the rights they had before the war. I dare not fix the epithet I think fitting to that mood of mind which deems it necessary ana becominir to preach to such a commu nity the duty of forgiveness ! I wish my voice could be heard by every colored man down to the Gulf; not because they need my advice. No; they understand and see their danger But I should like to rally them to help us a second time to save the na tion. I should say to them "Vote, every one of you, for Grant, as you value property, life, wife, or child. If Greeley is elected, arm, concentrate, conceal your property but organize for defense. You will need it soon and sadly." JF.Kl SALEM. Of all the cities of the globe, Jeru salem has been the most memorable for its divine honors, in prophetic distinctions, and its misfortunes. Its original name was Salem ; its first king said to be Melchizedec; and the proposed offering of Isaac .was said to have been on Mount Moriah, one of its three hills, afterward the site of the Temple. Jerusalem was conquer ed in the time of Joshua. Its history I was thenceforth a succession of sieges. It was recovered by the Canaanites, and re-taken and burned by Joshua; then captured by the Jebusites, and finally captured by David, in his res toration of the fallen glories of Isra acl. Its lofty position and evident strength determined the conqueror to make it his capital ; and leaving He bron, and rejecting the opulent fertil ity and natural loveliness of Samaria, he fixed bis throne in the citidel of the Jebusites, and named it the "City of David." Jerusalem stands nearly central between the Mediterranean and the Jordan thirty-seven miles east of the former, and twenty-three west of the latter. David brought the ark within its gates with great pomp, and fixed the site of the temple on Mount Moriah; but the erection of the Temple was appointed to his still greater son. The reign of Solomon was the summit of Jewish grandeur, and the building of the Temple was the summit of the grandeur of Solo mon. It was the most magnificent edifice ever raised by man ; not mere ly for its position on the pinnacle of the sacred mountain, or for us noble architecture, but for its splendor. Wherever gold, cedar or marble could be shown,- it was all gold, cedar, or marble. When Solomon, in advanced years, fell into idolatry, evil was declared against Israel. The kingdom of Da vid was shorn of its strength by the loss of the ten tribes, and the eivi , war terminated only in their captiv ity. Judah still retained its royalty for 130 years longer, until the Assyr ian invasion, when the city was stormed and the Temple was burned by Nebuchadnezzer, and lost its inde pendence as a kingdom forever. Re stored, after a captivity of seventy years in Babylon, it returned only to an enfeebled vassalage and a ruined Temple even saw its commonwealth recovered only to fall again ; and af ter suffering the repeated suprema cies of Syrian Egyptian and Roman, finally perished as a nation by the Roman sword. Yet the city was not wholly de serted. But an attempt of the em peror, in the year 141 of the Chris tian era, to make it a Roman fortress rased an insurrection which was ex tinguished in national blood, and con cluded the national ruin. For nearly two centuries more Jer usalem was forgotten by the world. At length, on the accession of Con stantine to the imperial throne, the Empress Helena is presumed to have made a pilgrimage to the wreck of the city to discover the sites made memorable by the history of our Lord (a. d. 326). Constantine re pealed the edict excluding the Jews from entering Jerusalem, but he al lowed their entrance only once in the year to weep over the destruction of the city. The ages of monachism followed; and in the reign of Justin ian a man of whom history has scarcely yet decided whether he was a philosopher or a dupe, a warrior or a dastard, a restorer or destroyer of empire the site of Jerusalem was adorned once more, according to the custom of the time, by building a su perb church on Mount Moriah to the Virgin (JL D. 527). He also built a succession of convents in the neigh borhood of Jerusalem and Jericho, and hospitals for the pilgrims of both these cities. But evil days were at hand. A Persian invasion of the Greek empire rushed on Syria (a. d. 614), broke the emperor's army, and stormed Jerusa lem with desperate slaughter. AH now was rapine ; but the Persians at length retreated and. the Emperor Heraclius entered the city, bearing the Cross on his shoulder. A still more formidable trial awaited this "City of misfortune." Mohammed ravaged Arabia, Egypt and Syria. The torrent of fire and steel rolled on Palestine. Jerusalem was besieged (a. d. 637), and, after a desperate de fense, was taken. Omar, the con queror, then built the mosquo which still stands on the spot once hallowed by the Temple. Jerusalem now rested, powerless and enslaved, for two centuries and a half: but the tenth century raised a 1 new spirit in Europe formidable to Mohammedan supremacy. A roman- ' a.! v -1 r it.i ai. i i . ? lie uenei turn me worm was coining to its end in the year 1,000 urged a multitude of pilgrims to the Holy Land. Its masters laid a tribute on the pilgrims. The insults and injur ies inflicted by tho Arabs on those European strangers became the uni versal rumor, and roused the universal wrath of Europe. In the tenth nnd eleventh centuries Jerusalem had passed from the Saracens to tho Egyptian Khalifs, from these to the Turcomans, and from them to the Egyptians again. In this period of doubt and distraction the army or the Crusaders under Godfrey of Bouillon appeared before Jerusalem, (a. p. I09i); the city was stormed; after a siege of forty days the Moslems were exterminated, the Mosque of Omar was consecrated as a Christian church, and the successful command er was proclaimed King of Jerusalem. The Christians preserved their con quest eighty-eight years. Iu the twelfth century the Sultan Saladin, an Arab hero, captured the city, threw down the Cross, and puri fied the holy places with rose-water. The prince a man of great bravery, sagacity and success restored the fortifications of Jerusalem on the ap proach of Richard Ceeur do Lion (a. p. 1102.)After the death of Saladin it fell successively into tho hanuls of every invader of Syria Mamaluke, Christian and Turk" In the sixteenth century its walls were rebuilt by the Turkish Sultan, Soliman the Magnifi cent (a. d. 1642), whose inscription remains over the Jaffa gate. Even in the present century this "City of lassitudes'' has changed masters, falling into the possession of Mchcm et Ali, the Pasha of Egypt, in his Syrian invasion (a. d. 1832). From him, however, it was wrested, with all his Syrian conquests (a. p. 1841, and restored to the Ottoman govern ment, under which it now rests. The Jewish nation, exiled from their Temple, city and country, have lccn dispersed all over-the world, harassed by plunder and persecution during the vast period, the seventeen centuries, which have passed since their national ruin. But a change has already begun. The Jew in all nations is sharing the protection of the law and the jossession of proper ty. It is to the honor of America that this change was begun by her, and that as she has long taken the lead in liberty, morals, and religion, she set the example of acknowledg ing the claims of the Jews to the fellow-feeling of mankind. Then and Xw Crl Hrkurz ia ltttS d IS73. Some of the German papers are amusing their readers with an illus tration of Senator Schurz'a versatil ity. In 1SC8 Senator Doolittle, of Wisconsin, in a speech, denounced the Republican Government of the South as a " military despotism more horrible than any ever endured bv the Poles, Hungarians, or Irishmen." Mr. Schurn, speaking in Chicago shortlv afterwards, referred to Mr. Doolittle as that " paltry statesman of Wisconsin who delights the public with his undertaker's wit and comic al earnestness." As to the charge of oppression in the South, Sehurz said that " If made by a sensation news paper, a pothouse politician at a ward meeting, or by Andrew Johnson, it might be allowed to pass, but when a Senator of the United States comes before the people and compares the acts of the military government in the South to the cruelties practiced in Poland and Hungary, he deserves chastisement Ho must either le more ignorant than an average school boy or have a love for deliberate mis representation incompatible with the character of an honorable man. I understand that Senator Doolittle has travelled in Europe. I think it would have been a useful employment of his time had he taken from a German school boy some elementary instruc tion in European history." And then Mr. Sehurz went on to give gome details to show what mili tary despotism in Europe really means. The comparison of the two speeches is amusing, in which the Sehurz of 1868 and 1872 express themselves on the 6amc subject. True, fairness properly suggests that what was not a fact four years ago may be a fact now. But the explanation suggested is not satisfactory, as the impression is irresistible that the speaker in both cases is one of those highly-gifted rhetoricians who can descant with equal emotion and equal effect on either side of the same shield, fully persuaded that he is quite in earnest all the time. The simple truth is that whatever mistakes may have been made in the reconstruction and general treatment of tho South, there has been no military despotism there, and when Senator Sehurz, in 1 872repeats and applies Uie words with which he so severely rebuked Sena tor Doolittle in 18C8, he lays himself open to the charge, not of ignorance, but of misrepresentation. - Deaaperaae Ikhnr Don't look of dat lager wLen it bin red, when it was given poorty much golor in dat bier glass, nnd when he vas rnorin all rite ; for of der last he ftting liko 0110 pumblebec, nnd bites like a Xewfountland bull-dog.
