The How of Kutern capital which has
lwen frightened out of city property, and
out of transportation nnd manufacture*,
07 recent event*, into agriculture, in tliu
"hape of loans to *mall farmer* ?t the
Went, to the preat extent of which we
called attention in a recent arliclo on
western investment*, is a striking iIIuhtration
ol the manner in which,under the
ordinary o|ieration of the law* of trade,
an? "over doing" in any one field of industry
is remedied. That this in a healthy
and useful movement, if carried on carefull?,
there in no question. It will prove
enormous advantage to the Went, and
to tlmt invaluable body of men who aim
?} "ecuring farms of their own by |?r istent
industry and economy, if conduct*
*d,a* we have no doubt it Im for the moat
part a-* yet, with care and discrimination.
Another proof of the healthiness of
(liu movement of capital into agriculture
"to be found in the wonderful support
ol the nationnl credit mid prosperity
which agriculture has supplied since
m. With the collapse of the homo de
tnanil and the absence o( foreign market*
'or our manufacture*, wo should have
been in a sorry plight during the last
lour yearn if it were not for the enormous
quantity of farm produce we have been
abl?* to export; and the probabilities are
that, with the steadilv improving means
of trangjKjrtation ami increasing skill in
preparing products for transportation?
of which the cheese and fresh-uient trade
*ith Europe are remarkableilluatrations
?farming will continue tp play a larger
ana larger part both in settling foreign
claims against us aud procuring us for*
sign commodities, after feeding our own
population.
Jt would seem as if Uio return to the
country of the surplus (and now ill-fed,
ill-lodged, and discontented aurplus)
population of the towns, which pbllan*
thrpputa have begun to advocate and
w? for, ought not to be difficult to bring
about. The cities being plainly overcrowded
by the drift into them of country
people attracted by the prodigious activ*
ity of manufacturing Industrv and of ex*
change and epeculation, the idle, the tin*
happy, and the destitute ought, it ia said,
to aally out promptly and resume the
purA and healthy life of tillers of thei
soil, Every now and then one reads in1
the newspapers one of thone articles o!
advice in which the late Horace Greeley
was aticli a proficient, calling on the im<
poveriehed city laborer and artisan and
clerk to atart out on the country roads
with the full assurance that they will
Gnd work and welcome at almost
any farm-house (hey come to.
There ia one thing, however, that
well-meaning promoter* of the exodus
j from the city to the country are apt to
forget. and that is, that it ia much easier
to drift from the farm to the workshop or
I a store than from the workshop or store
| to the farm. Capital, in fact, Hows from
the ctty to the country far more easily
than labor. Work on a farm is more or
I less repulsive to all men, from its aeverl*
ty and exposure to the weather. There
is hardly anybody engaged in it who
would not like to exchange it, if ho could,
for occupation needing less muscle, anu
capable of being pursued under corer,
and with greater neatness and cleanliness,
and with more company, and greater opportunities
for aumaeuient. The young
farmer, therefore, generally longs to
"clerk it" in the nearest town, and having
"clerked it" awhile, and become used to
clean hands, warm rooms, the theatre,
anil the concert-room, he will submit to
almost any privation Booner than go back
to the hoe and the plough and the windy
field. Even the day laborer it apt to prefer
working even in city drains, with
the nroapect of a sociable evening and
sociable Sundays, to lighter but more
solitary and monotonous labor on
the farm. In fact, a man who has even
for a year led n city life in any calling Ik
apt to be spoilt for agriculture, and will
try all aorta of dodgea rather than go back
to it. On the other hand, the jjaaaage
from the farm to the city is easy, and it
in the dream of moat farm youths to make
it. They hear of the fortune* won in the
cities by "poor boya" like themselves
from their own neighborhood, and they
are impressed by the well-cut clothes,
and white hands, and wonderful stories
of city gaiety of their friends who sell dry
good* or hardware in the nearest great
town. Our sytem of popular education,
too, and our popular literature, have
much to do with creating a distaste for
farm life and small gains. They sharpen
the wits just enough to make solitude
very irksome and till the head with vngue
ambition.
TheeHect of this policy on the growth
of the cities, too, haa been most unhealthy,
and has made the problem of municipal
government a very serious one for American
nocietv, bv stopping the tide of foreign
immigration on its way to the Went.
Ho long ad the growth of American citien
was natural, their population wan increased
bjr men who had learned the art
of local self-government, ami acquired
their political conscience in the country.
Under the forcing system they have been
built up by vast accretions of ignorant
foreigners, whose first experience of politico
irt acquired in ward primaries, ami
who learn to look on the Bullrage as aimply
a means of getting jobs out of the
public, and taxation as another name lor
the forced contributions of the rich to a
fund for the poor man's relief.
The procees of restoring the balance
between town and country will therefore
probably be a much slower one than
could bo wished, and will have to be promoted
by a variety of ageucies. A rational
tarifl which will recognize the fact
that the average American is a shrewd
bueinesa man and can generally be relied
on to find out occupations that haw
money in them, without bung paid for it
by the Treasury, is one of them. Another
is* a thorough reform in city goverment,
which will restrict the taxing, or rather
conUiicaiing power, of numerical majorities,
and put the charities on a sensible
footing, and thus make city life less
attractive to the idle, the ignorant, and
IliA viriniia. Annllinr allII ia iliu an fa Sn.
vestment of the capital now being ho freely
lent to farmer* at the West. We may
mid, though it is lew capable of delinilion,
and perltapa of execution, than the
other*, the reorganization oi country life
in aouie way that will make it lets solitary
and give it more harmlesa distracttion.
The magazine and piano farmer of
our day cannot stand the silent drudgery
of the fields as the German or French
peasant can.

cweaand refused 10 application. Among
tbwe lecommended for pardon waa E.J,
Ford, the negro who waa convicted in
Philadelphia in 1801 for the murder of

relations with his wife. Owing to a doubt
of the justice ot the verdict the Governor

a death warrant, and he haa been aerving

Mr. Matthews submitted a concurrent 1
resolution, reeling various acts of Congress
in authorizing the issue of homls, 1
Sic.; and declaring that all bonds of (lie
United States, under mid act, aro payable,
principal and interest, at the option '
of the government of the United States
in silver dollars of 412? grains standard
silver, and such payment is not in viola- ,
tionof public faith or rights of public (

...
Mr. Kerry presented a petition of citi- |
rons of Michigan in favor of the parage ,
of the hill to authorize the coinage ol a ,
standard silver dollar. ,
The following bills were introduced |
and referred:
By Mr, Thurman: To provide for [
the Circuit and District Courts of the
United States at Toledo, Ohio. I
By Mr. Dorsey: To organize theTerri ,
torjr of Fisbuingo, and for other pur- (
popes.
By Mr. Burnside: For the protection
of the widows and orphans and heirs at
law of officers in the anuy.
By Mr. Matthews: To extend the time
for presenting claims for collecting,
drilling or organizing volunteers for the (
war of the rebellion. ,
During roll-call Mr. Wallace, of Penn.,
eaid his colleague, (Cameron) was paired j
with the Senator from Maryland (Dennis) ,
but as to how either of them would vote ,
he did not know. I
Mr. Thurman said he was paired on all ,
political questions with the Senator from (
Vermont f Edmunds) who was detained at j
bis houseby sickness. He, Thurman, did
not consider this a political question
upon which a pair should be observed.
If any Senator thought it was ho would
withdraw his vote.
Several Senators?Oh, this isn't apolitical
question. _
Mr. Morrill said lie did not consider it
a political question, but he had doubts
as to how his colleague would vote.
Mr. White said he was paired with the
Senator from Alabama (Spencer] on the
(Cumin case but nothing w?? an'ul wh?t. 1
ever about the silver question. i
Mr. Blaine paid during my recent illness
I wan paired villi Senator Lamar,
who with great courtesy anil kindness
consented to maintain the pair until my
recovery and reappearance in the Senate.
The Senator from Colorado (Teller) was
flaired at the same time with the Senator
rom Oregon (Grover), that pair being
indefinite on political questions. When
the question of the Louisiana and South
Carolina Senatorships came up, the Senators
from Mississippi and Colorado tiesired
10 record their votes, and with the
concurrence of or colleague there Senators
were mutually released and I was
considered as paired with the Senator
from Oregon until the close of the late
session. My return terminated my pair
wilh the Senator from Mississippi (Lamar),
and the Senator from Colorado
fTeiler) resumes bin pair with the Senator
irotn Oregon (Urover). 1 make this detailed
statement lest my voting to day
without explanation might be misunder*
stood, as the Senator from Oregon has not
yet returned.
Mr. Teller said that his pair with
(]rover waa on all political questions but .
as this was not a political question he
felt at liberty to vole.
Mr. Cookrell said that ho would not ,
have paired on thl? question with any i
one had the term* of a pair been no under* i
stood, but the Senator from Masaachusetts
(Hoar) spoke to hitn about a pair t
and he promised to either imir with him |
himself or furnish one; to this Mr. Hoar i
agreed, and the extent ot the pair was i
left to his colleague (Dawea), who thought <
it should be observed on thin bill, and
therefore he did not vote. I
Mr. Mathews submitted tho following i
resolution in regard to the payment of
bond* in silver, and at hia reqoe'at it wat 1
ordered that it lie on the table and be
printed:
Whereab, By an act entitled, "An act 1
to strengthen the public credit," approv- <
ed March 18th, 18G9, it was provided and ?
declared that the faith ot the United

"An act supplementary to an act
entitled 'an act establishing a mint and
regulating the coins of IheUmted States/11
to be a legal tender of payment according
to their nominal value of anj sums
whatever; therefore be it
IIewired, by the Senate and Iloute of Representative*.
concurring therein, That all

lender in payment of said bond*, prln
cipal and interest, is not in violation of
the public faith nor in derogation of the

the Senate what legal impediments, if
any,exist which prevent fromcirculating

branches of the Union Pacific are the
Kansas Pacific, Denver Pacific and Central
Pacific, of California, the Kurlington

h vote was taken on the substitute for the
above resolution, submitted November

omitted the named of the roads said to be
branch roads of the Union Pacific, and it
was rejected without roll call.
