WWUitg HIS Mcl%cncft,
(jrlllui H oil Off by Banning (
The WelUburg News reaffirms its re- a
iiiirk that young men are obliged to j
letre Hrooke county in order to make a
living, ami nay* that William Cafsner,
ttie uian who got well otTby cropping on
ihe .'hares,came very near ruining his
health and that of his family during thu
process. The logic of this ntateincnt in H
that it i* not possible to get well ofl* by g
cropping on the shares in Brooke county j
itvo by the loss of one's health, a conclu: }
siou that ia virtually an arraignment a
of tho whole business of farming on the
jhsret in this p?rt ol the country. The (
editor does not,we presume, pretend to be r
iery well pouted in agricultural matters. *
b'lee he would know that there are two I
wiri to nuke money iu that business as t
iu most other employments. One is by c
hard work and close economy, aud noth- c
ing else, and tho other is by intelligent ^
attention to the opportunities presented t
by the business. It in not alwnyti tho n
hardest working farmer who makes the ^
most money, but tho one who combines c
work with knowledge. Of course, at the
iery outset, a man must do the beat he
cm in farming, m in everything else, and
acquire his first capital bv hard knocks.
This is a necessity that is laid upon nearly j(
everybody in this hitrd working world
nave the favored few who are born with *
*ilver spoons in their mouths. It is not J.1
only a necessity but apparently a safe- f
guard, and is really the only safe channe 1 y
upon which most men can embark in the i:
business of life. A man rites or sinks in '
Lis modus operandi of pursuing agricul* .
ture as he does in other pursuits. Gen* f
erally speaking, it is'the man who applies i
his mind to the business who makes the 1
most and the easiest money by farming.
The farmers who 25 years ago took to
sheep in advance of those who persisted
in raising grain made more money arid
made it easier. Those who Mince that
liuio have paid attention to stock raising '
of ail kinds, especially the selection of '
ihe best breeds of t<tock, have prospered .
more than th?.se who have ignored this t
manner of farming. On the other hand ?
many farmers have made money by sheer J
hard work and close listed economy who j
have never applied their mental faculties ]
to their business. They have done this t
at the expense of everything like self-iui- 1
provement aud proper consideration for
the culture of their families. Aud so in
all the other avenues of business men
have done the same thing. It is the man J
and not the occupation that determines
this question of methods of business. ^
Squire Atkinson of Hrooke county, |
who yet lives at the village of West i
Alexander, wan a fair specimen of an I
intelligent farmer who always made J
money at the business, and yet was {
among the best informed men of the i
country, lie raised a largo family, gave ?
each member of it a fair education, and 1
ii they branched off from the parent ;
stem gave them a good etart in life, and
vet Htill retaineil for himself an auiple
competence. And he irf one of many faruiern
wh# have done the name thing. (
When therefore the Seas as*umen that :
no man can martin life as a cultivator of '
tUc soil in this part of the country and J
.uike a good living, without doing ho at .
v.uexpense of his health, it argue* in the <
f*:eoi well known facta to the contrary. I

The llrcllue in (icwlnml uutl
ritlibur^li KuilroaU Stock.
We alluded on Saturday to the raid
made on thin security in New York on
the previous day, by which its price was
forced downsuddenly from SG to"80, seller
30." We notice by the New York
papers of Saturday that only 100 shares
were wold at this price, and the operation
was therefore whit we described it on
Saturday, a bold attempt on the part of
the railroad wreckers who affiliate with
Jay Gould to undermine public confidence
in one of the most nolvent railroad
securities in the market. The New York
Fo.it, alluding to this raid, describe* the
modus operandi of il as follows :
The method of doing this is to take a
stock which is distributed among inventor*,
(and which no one in the street hus
a di reel money interest in Htistaining)
sad oiler it "seller thirty" or 'Veller sixty"
several points below the current 1
price. These oflera to Hell attract the
attention of holders and they say something
must be wrong; they, inquire and no
one can tell what is the matter; they see
the price day by day lowered in this way,
and in the vague fear that there maybe
?ouie terrible disclosure to come reanon
that they better save what they can sell, '
and are aided in coming to this conclusion
by calling to mind Jersey Central.
rtie.se sales by investors bring stocks into
the Mtreet, and this makes the work of
tilling the stock down easier. Rumors
.ire started that something i.s wrong
either with the company or with those
.in>hi concerned, and in a few days the
work of sliding the ntock down is as easy
a* gliding down hill; and yet there may
be no chatigo in the condition of the company.
'I he New Yoik Tribune of Saturday
alludes to the "raid* aj follows :
"The chief feature of the ?tock market
was an ontdaught upon the shares of leased
railroads, which wan aoindincriminating
a* to include such a ntock a* that of
Cleveland it Pittsburgh, wiling it down
to 81 and SO, seller day*. This little
l-roperty is leased and guaranteed by the
1'ennsylvania Company, and there is no
reason to doubt that it is one of the few
which payB a handsomo protit to the
lewee; so that even in case of the worst
coming to the Pennsylvania Railroad the
dividends on Cleveland ?S Pittsburgh
would be promptly paid, as the lease is a
T.nlnablo HHset which would be sacriliccd
by a default.
It will be 8eeu by our financial dispatch
that the C. P. closed on Saturday
evening at "79J." The record of sales,
however, on .Saturday aliow that theucfuai
closing of the market was "80 bid, 83
The true condition of this security
is a matter of much concern to rnanv
readers of the Ixtelliukmcer in this
region, and we are therefore glad to he

We suppose that the Clarksburg Tekram
might conduct the Capital discus
ion against Charleston without printing
uch uncomplimentary historical ullu
ions as the following, but inasmuch ai
t quotes from a Charleston paper it can
lardly be charged with malice. The
irticle is as follows:
"1 An ()hserver' writes to the Charleston
Tourier' Uy examining the records ol
linety yearn ago you will find that men
rcre indicted before the Grand Jury for
>rofam> swearing and for desecrating the
labbath day. Under that order of thing'
hu Kanawha Vallev, and etq>oeially the
ity of Charleston, became noted lor itf
ulture, refinement and piety. Now ille
itimates abound everywhere and mulutoes
claim blood kin, and, indeed, go by
lie names of some of our so-called besl
len, to say nothing of the crimes, tin
ark waters uf Kanawha and the procuds
of medical preparation* cover.'"
As if this quotation were not enough
I itself, the Telejrdm goes on lo write
bout it* competitor for the Capitalahip
a follows:
"Charleston is known to consist ol a
cw mine*, tumble down miner*'shanties,
few saloons, poor hotel, the bar of

New York, April 21.?The Herald's
, Albany correspondent telegraphs that the
, Attorney General has not, and never has
t had, in his possession nt Albany, any
, original contession of Tweed, or any <?f
, the vouchors required to substantiate it.
The only docuiuents he haa are abstracts
of intended confessions to be made in coso
1 the arrangement for Tweed's release was
concluded, which included reference*
partly from memory and partly from
documents immediately under the control
of Tweed, in Ludlow street, ton sufficient
extent to substantiate the allegations gen*
erally, but not to furnish sjveeific proof
of |iurticuhir transsctiitiis.' The supple*
mental confession relative to the Court of
Apnea(s~ Judges is of the same nature,
<ii? ...t f?- ?.??u .?:n i.~
delivered only when the term* and date
of Tweed's release are titially agreed
| upon. The abstract* are not very
\ bulky, nnd were made out at the sugge*tion
of Char lea O'Connor as a basis upon
' which the Attorney General could form
his opinions upon the advisability of recommending
tiie pardon of Tweed.
The Tribune nays: The fact that Tweed I
is indisposed to testify at this time is all
th? mure to l>e regretted because of the
. evident disposition on the part of some
persons in authority, or having great inj
lluence over those in office, to uuppreH*
1 the statement as a whole, and to use such I
. fraction* an are necessary to exposo
I those whom it is desired to crush, and
to suppress other portion* afiecting per|
sons who may be profitably used for
u political or other purposes. A large
I part of the material collected by II. F.
t rain tor in examining the bank accounts
. of the ringmen years ago, has never seen
light, but, carefullly arranged, lies safely
j deposited in the drawers of Samuel J
. Tiideit's library in Gramercy Square,
where it is probable Tweed's statement
and evidence willg(rii i\ot speedily published.
Tilden kept this material that ho might
draw on it from time to time for political
purposes, and to a "similar use
1 Tweed's hundreds of checks may yet go,
if, as reported, Tilden has already begun
' a canvass for the nomination of President
' in 18S0. Among those shown by Tain>
tor's investigations to have profited by i
the ring transactions was Joseph 1>.
Young, Clerk of the Hoard of Supervis-'
: ors for years, but Young's name never)
' came out. Comptroller Green one day
' relused to sign a warrant for Young's
pay. Young in retaliation, declined to
1 certify, a* required by law, the warrant
r for Green's pay as Deputy Comptroller.
> This threw Green into a great rage, and
* he applied to Tilden for advice. Tilden
U'onl iiiiiwtlv tn liia lilii-nn' unit frntit u
' large number of yellow packages took
" oge marked "Joseph B. Voting." In it
' there wan found a record of Young'*
* transactions with the King. The next
' morning this appeared in the newspapers,
* and that was the last ever heard of Mr.
> Young. He found that he was to be indicted.
When the committee met Mr. Tweed,
which was almost immediately after their
arrival at Ludlow street jail, there wa*
little delay. Mr. Townsend, counsel for
. Tweed, introduced hi# client, who was

n Raid he was 01 yearn old, and on being
asked where he resided, replied that his
, family lived in Connecticut, and he was
. a New York Senator for four yearn; the
material <|ueation ho declined to answer
,x at the outset, and read the following
L. statement, duly signed:
? "1 did not give, nor did 1 authorise any
v one to give, to the^ the statement

H treat your honorable committee with all

? that article, its assertions, or any part of
0 them, or any newspaper article not furj
nished by me, and to which my name has
not been attached, by me; and I beg leave
while respectfully declining to answer,
to hand you a letter written and forwarded
on the 19th inst. by my counsel,
John I). Townsend, Esq., to a member of

"Wm. M. Tweed.
; "APIL'JI, 1877."
J The letter of Mr. Townsend, referred
* to in Mr. Tweed's statement, and address*
ed to the chairman of the committee, i?
as follows:
"Xlew York, April 19, 1877.
, "Mr DkakSik?In reply to your telegram
asking me whether my client, Mr.
Tweed, will submit voluntarily to be ex1
amined by the coinmitteo of which you
I are a member, appointed to take testi*
r mony in the matter of the nlleged brif
bery of Senator Woodin, ami thus avoid
{ the necessity of a compulsory process, 1
I have to say that 1 have consulted with
' my client on the subject^, and by my ad.
vice he will decline to give any testimony
before your committee relating to the
subject "to which you refer, except to me.
I believe Tweed has not confided the
statement which, under certain circumstances,
ho is willing should become a
matter of public action. I have deemed
* it advisable for his interests to put the
name in form and submit it to the Attor*
ney Uenoral of this State for his consider*
' ation.and I believe he is now engaged in
'* determining upon the course in regard to
' which will best subserve the interests of
" tlie people. This statement was only
1 submitted to him upon his assurance that
? it would be returned to me, and its con'}
tents remain undivulged, should he de'
cline to accede to my client's release from
" imprisonment. I can conceive of no pos J
Bible advantage that this prosecution
' could be to the public beyond
p the moral effect of the full publication
of it, unless it could effect
punishment of the offender*, and the recovery
of the money. Believing that the
e examination of Tweed before the Attor[>
ney General was prepared to move in the
e matter might seriously affect public ins
terest by giving the offenders an oppori
tunity to escape or make away with their
I property, I felt compelled to advise
1 Tweed to decline to be a witness at this
i* time. But beyond this, and as the mate
ter especially affected him persontllv, I
have advised Tweed to declino examina
lion at this time, upon the ground that hid1 the
annwers might tend to criminate him. it ron
wan admitted by Senator Woodin in hid can
speech before the Senate on the 17th inat., 'i
that Tweed had testified in 1872 before Tor
the Senate committee appointed to Inves* op|
tigate the charges against Senator James win
Wood in, in effect that'he had never, di- "
recti/ or indirect!/, paid or offered to grn
I my money to any member of the Legis* ent
lature to secure the passage of any law.' I
it thut be ho, and 1 havo no reason to gru
doubt the correctness of Senator Wood- li
ill's investigation of the subject, I feel sail
impressed with the propriety of such ad- Toi
vice at this time. Assuring you that to I
nothing would give me greater pleasure ing
than to nee my .client in a position where fern
ho could safely testify on this and kin? The
dred matters, I am, with great respect, visi
your obedient servant, and

Being asked were there two parties in ho, *
