School E i.ection.-Wb would call the
atten
tion of our reader* reaiding within the Inde»
pendent District of Independence, to the
call in another column for an election to be
held one week from Saturday, to deteilnine
the question of iaauing bonda to tbe amount
of $1508, for the purpose of erecting anoth
er seh.iol building in the district. It ceeaa
to us that the propoaition cannot fail to cars
rv. The people of Independence have seen,
and are seeing every day the good eflfects of
a lihernl policy In regard to schools, and it
probably will need no labored argument to
convince them that it is beat to continac in
well doing.
Thr WaKTI Ot- ISDCPCitDEHCC.—Thcac
are probably many and it is quite possible
ihnt wc nre not acquainted with a tithe of
them. But there are a few thinga which
have struck us during our short residence in
ihis city, as being likely to become impor
tant adjuncts to its business and growth, if
Ihov can be compassed. Wo will take the
liberty to mention tbcin.
Tbo first is an absolute necessity and
that is, more h»uc». The nnaiber of dwell
ings for rent or for sale in Independence are
entirely inadequate to the demands of the
present, not to mention those of a few months
henre, when emigration shall begin to poor
in tipon us. Ve* comers are not always
prepared or inclined to build immediately
upon their arrival, and depac4 npon ranting
dwellings and biiHiiicss houses. If these an
not procurable here, many uien who would
make valuable citizena will have no other
choice than lo pass ua aad g* where tbey
I oan get these convtnieaoea. Prom enr ex
l||Cj»«ttee. wt thta robjwt it i«

Bit
iu wbii-h
sad to unmuat aad
I air, or uuiler the
i of depressing
nn oih
donbt Whether twenty families can procure
comfoitalh, not to say commodious quarters
thia.city at this time. What is needed it
that so ne of our public-spirited capitalists
shall luvest in dwellings for rent, Consid
ering that this class of property is rapidly ri
sing iu value, the inveatment would be a
good one acide from the rents received.
Another want of our city, is the establish
ment of a first-class woolen factory. There
is nothing that so surely conduces to the
permanent prosperity of a town as the build
ing up of mauufacturing interacts, and no
enterprise in that line promises better returns
than a woolen factory. The 20,000 sheep
of Buchanan county alone would go far to
furnish business for it. If tbe capital is not
here to build it, it i* probable that proper ef
fort woold bring it here.

Our thanks are due to Hon. 8. J. W. Ta
bor for public documents.
There are other enterprises of like charac
ter which if not actual necessities still would
add immensely to our trade and population
if entered into. We suggest a sash, door
and blind factory, the manufacture of wag
ons by machinery, more capital invested in
manufacturing agricultural implements, Ac.
Withont doubt these things have suggested
themselves to our citizens a score of times
before we only suggest them now that they
may be kept iu mind aud furnish topics fur
discussion.
Board or Trade.—Ameetingof tbe news
ly organised Board of Trade was held ia the
room adjoining Jed Lake's office, in Mun
aon's block, on Saturday evening last. The
meeting was not large, but the discussion by
those who were present, of matters affecting
tbe busiuess interests of this community, was
spirited. There was a pretty general ri
pression of view* npon the credit question,
and wbateverche may be said about the ob
jects and purpoaea of the aaaociatioo, there is
no mistaking tbe fact that one of Its designs
is lo work a much nee itd reform iu the sys
tem of long and loose credit which now pre
vails, and which is alike detrimental to cred
itor aud debtor. The opinion of the mem
ber*—comprising very nearly all the best
businessmen of tbe city—were expressed
very emphatically upon this subject. Tbe
fact was elicited as the result ot one geutle
u.an's investigation, that there ia owing to
the merchants of Independence over $40,.
000, very little of which ia represented by
anything but book account, and much oi
which has been ruuuing for a loi.'g time.
Tbe cash system of doing business is un
doubtedly the very best for all parties, but if
(bla i* impracticable, such a ayatem of cred
it should be established as shall fix a definite
time tor payiaeut, .nd shall make it impera
tive upon the party who asks for credit, that
he meet his obligations promptly. This will
work no injustice lo aoy one. It will enable
the business men to do a safor business, and
it will check iu tlwsa who :re compelled tc
ask for time, the ttftidency to expenditure
beyond their ability to pay. We aie con
fident that tbe Boatd ot Trade will endeavor
to establish some rule by which reform in
in this direction will be brought abtwt.
Some mention was made at tbo meeting of
report* derogatory to the character of the
organization, and it was suggested that it
make a public denial of them. Tbis was, very
seusibty as we think, overruled. It the char
acter of the gentlemen who compose our
Board of Trade is not a sulGcent vindication
•f ita aims aud purposes, it will do r.o gi oj
to waste papur and ink |iu tbe effort. It
was voted tbat tbe articles of incorporation
together with the names of the qacnibprB ..I*
published. They will accordingly appear
in tbe Bcl&tix acxt week.

MR. J. L. LOOMU.
My Dear Sir :—As there is no
longer doubt that I am tbe preacher refvred to
iu your recent article on Small Sine" (I
have private and unsought information to
this elect,) I wish to offer a few words in
tbe way of correction. Naturally, an honest
man ia not unwilling to be held responsible
for hia real opinions. Nothing should
be published from the pulpit iwtfeh
will not bear publishing elsewhere. If
aa unwilling to be represented in a certain
way it is only because I do not beliva in that
way and what I do not believe, I do not
deliberately express.
In »y judgement many acts which fall
short of the guilt of the vice of intemperance
do have the guilt of jeopardizing tbe Intcis
cats of self and others.
Acts not vicioas may be sinful. If a
brother's blood cries against one from the
ground it is no suAcent defease—** I com
mitted no immorality." Tbare ia no vice in
atanding apon the edge of a precipice—but
if my companion i* known to be lubject to
fit* of giddiness his blood may lie found upon
me. The innocent
in itself often becmes frqm
its relatiou*, guilty. Who would auepeft tbat
the mini*te^of the gospel into whose mouth
you put the noxiona aenfiment expressed in
yoor article, was really engaged in earnest
inculcation ot the,4nty of Total Abstinence
on the iia|wegnab1e grocada of prudence
and the pgUio welfare? Yoc Bake him
iWponebtt Tat ft aentjstent which as you
clearly e, become Ihq cQtnmon (aith of
our yonth Ihe saloons of Independence
would yearly send more soals to eiernal
peiditiea than would be saved by the com
bined effort of alt the churrhta." gBch a
sentiment as that will bear repudiation.
Ia my diacouraa of- the 14th, I thought I
had. Wttf guarded against foiaapiychension.
In enuaarating the difficulties''' of dealing
with intempfraucc I naraeJ tti^ fact that it
wae'avice.oi exeasa. Acts not ia them
selves ftcip«s drew by i0M«stb\c stage* into
the vice. The whole force of the conscience
cMld votbe bacaght to. bear at tbe^ouieet,
as in the caae of vicea ia which the first act
involved their characteriatic guilt. In this
connection I said—I quote with careful acs
curacy froi6' the mdnritcript read—" A
•tan could oot morally (that ia morally
•peaking,) be called intemperate wboaa
aaa of wiae or other apiritioua liquors never
gave hia apparent injuay. The act of
drinking, ia not vicious of itaelf—it becomea
vision* only when of certain degree. 1 aay
nothing here of whether the act of drinkuig
ma aetto Very likely it aay he,
mm*
fruin. its relations lo private or Ibe public tenuiices
good. But it may not be vicious—It may
not be the vice of intemperance. Ycu have
to know some thing more of a man than that
he has drank rf some of these dangerous
beverages before you can call him a vicious
or, evLn a sinful atan. It ^ay have been
but a single act—it may hav^j been to fortify
himself against disease—to cure a disea^
already in progress or have been in suclTl
careful moderation that whatever the mur
al qwdUty of the aH in itt relatione it did
oot have the guilt of the personal rice of in
teinpaannce."
Horn dbee tbia qdfoparo with your state
ment, "lie did claim tbat it was only tbe
excess of drinking that made it a sin
Yon say you hav.i no conflict but with
"principles." But a careful looking to facts,
when giving testimony, ia often aa impor
tant as scrupulousness as
to principles. Nut to
untrue things, (however mistakenly and afcfck
innocently,} is often as important as to
contend against things which do not exist.
I trust I shall not have occasion to recur
to thia subject again. I was doubtful wheth
er it was not better to allow ynn the re
sponsibility you had taken of bringing the
influence of a pulpit to the moral support of
dram-drinking. On tbe whole, I thought it
better not to be constructively responsible.
As to any "conflict," personal or other
wise, I should be ashamed to entertain tbe
thought. Undoubtedly your views and
mine on this question do not agree but I
know no reason why tbis should give ex
traordinary uneasiueaa on either tide—espe*
cially as we come to the the same practic
al conclusion.
Wishing yon prosperity in the new torn
of your affairs I am very truly your*.

ACvmair Agricultural laeleiy.
It fctcurj to rs that a false idea Is perra
ding tbe mind* of some of our farmers in
referancc to sustaining au Agricultural So
ciety. We as farmers sh u1d increase our
efforts to advance agriculture in our county.
We must admit it is a benefit to all classes
ofaiciety, hencj the necessity of forming a
County Agricultural Society. We as farm
er-. feel that it is quite us intellectual au oc
cupation as Commerce and a great deal
more bur.eat in many cases quite na honor
able as a»iy of the professions and a great
deal wore healthful. Agricultural S u it-lies
are capable of u-sUl nir us in our pursuits.
The fact is, farming is in any country the
main stuy, and in those societies we come
in contact with men who are capable and
willing to impaW instruction.
Agriculture is my hobby, and greatest
pleasure, and my conviction is strung that
if ever Buchanan Co. is to become rich, the
means moat certainly will be found in agri
Cub ure in «ne shape or another. Many of
us have taken up our residence .n this coun
ty we have come here but recently, we in
tend to make a living for ourselves and fam
ilies frrtm the cultivation of the soil. In re
viewing the past with rt f-reme to my farm
ing operations, I cmi di-e,,ver in a great
many cases where 1 ive missed it. U'h it
we want is the experienae of practical farm
ers and if we form ourselves into an Agri
cultural Society, we cau then obtain the de
aired information.

Tbe averaga'niimberiaaaallerthan it would
bare been, were it not tbat many of those who
came in for tbe winter term, were obliged to
leave before its closed in order to secure
work for the com.ng season. It is an en
couraging fact, tbat tbe number and regular
attendance of pupils, in our echoola, have
been constantly increasiug since organiza
tion.
A year ago, we numbered450 pupils now
we have 597, an increase of 147. We shall
soon have publi-hed, a list of all those in
tbe -rhoola, wbo have not for the past term
nnd the term previous, been absent, or tardy.
Our pupils are performing cheerful aud will
ing labor, and I know tbey share fully intbe
fride taken by patents and teachers, in the
success that should constantly result from
school labor. We ask, paren s and friends,
for your continued help in our work. We do
not doubt that tbe very great aid you have
given us in the past, ia a warrant of the fu
ture.
Let the merits of our schools equal the be
nevolent spirit shown by tbe District in its
i early support of thein, then must they cou*
stantly do a more complete work.

Wi*THnor, March 28,1869.
Ed. BCLLETIK Is there one amougvour
many patrons, who docs not l^eep a hobby
horse, to show the pleasure ot parading a
favorite, be it material or iutel ectual,.is in
different. If there is, I should like to see
him in our quiet village and compare him
with piclenece curiosities heretofore unequal
ed, or even by a living specimen of the dodo,
or a yearling ichthyosauraus making its first
clumsy efforts towards amphibious perfec
tion. Inasmuch u I do not believe one
among us to be hobby-horse less tbere need
be no diffidence oil my part iu confessing to
having one. I fa- cy, however, that the
height of my ambition will be reached wheu
the fact becomes patent ibal the horse I ride
is made after tbe Will o' Ihe Wisp" pat
tern, jumping here, there, and everywhere,
capering over every kind of pasture, aud iu
a measure letting solid, truthful facts, take
the pen aa it were at bitt in ita 'mouth, ant'
attempting to exemplify ita alrengtb by its
truth.
Thus much, Mr. Editor, as a preface to
my first local correspondence.
In Winthrop, as elsewhere, the roads are
uddy and trade and minerce have now
a resting apell. Owing to tb depresaed state
of the grain market, there has not been the
same activity luamfeated here as there waa
last year. Still tbe grain must have an out
let, and onr buyers, among whom the most
prominent are the Messrs. Rich & Bro's.,
Alex. Risk, Galrin A McGowan have dur
ing the lust winter the highest possible
figures tbat could paid and at tbe same
time save themselves from bss. Since the
last harvest tbere has been five times that
grain haa declined rapidly. At cach time
Dame Fortune found our warehouses full
and the Railroad Co. willing to switch in any.
number of empty cara for loading. When
grain increased in value not ene-fourth cars
enough ware to be had. 8uch haa been
their experience. In tbe laat month there
has been more lumber sold from tbe yar^s
here than in any one month heretofore aince
their establiahment. Wa have two owned
and managed by Mr. Chaa, Slidell and Mr.
E. A. Hu^ both men of known probity and
atrict integrity. In auch men the fiarsMra
can and do place implicit reliance.
Our town boasts (and well it may,) of two
good, live doctors—H. C. Markhaa and E.
Chamberlain—who, during thia unplaaaant
aeaaon of tha year, think it not harah
treatment to be called from their warm beds
to alloviate th* suffering of the distressed.
Their ewn ragged'flf%me* and tlnitW eon-
-notwithstanding th'-ir frequent terilory,
exposure—loudly proclaim the merits of
their medical !reatn.e,.t, 'l b,-v eacn havt a
drug store, where can be uui. at a!i times,
uantnm safiieit" of (he varioes elixirs
a qua
or life. I
In the rnercaii'ile line there is th old e»
tablhihuieiii of J. II. Palmer, who bus lately
added strength and merit to hia own former
powerful name, by tbe addition of two good
men «8 pirtner.s wilb him.
Kdmison A Jamison have about comple
ted the sale of their dry gt,o-ls, and are now
preparing lu open ilia kpriu/ trade with a
full stock of druga and groceries.
Locke A Wallace are .s'iii.g along a*
best they know how, to secure alar^'e trade,
upou the arrival of their spring goods, which
are expected daily. They have the mo-t
commodious store in town, and present ap
pearances would indicate that tin-yarn bound
uvl to be behind with gti..ds nor higher in
prices than th'ir neighbors.
Hil.lreth A Fellows have also a good
stock, well selected, well kept and selling
well. They nre known and hiirhly respect
ed as honest, straight-forward dealing men.
Mr. George F»rr represents the hardware
hnsines-i. His stock of iro." nnd tin war*
were selected by himself, a'!i being himself
a workman, knows best what to purchase.
It is a pleasure to deal with him, as ho is
one of tbe few wbo can make business a
pleasure.
In the different branchea of mechanical
art there are none wanting except a Jailor,
bull have not time at present to fa ther
roam. If tbia ia accepted you may expect
to bear again from

Fettital in aid of a Sidewalk-—Programme
Scenes, IncitknU, Sunijn, PanUminen,
Tableaue, Ac—A very creditable thing for
Neiijbnr Jetvp.
Euituii Bci.Lt.TiN.—The principal event
of tbe week just imaged haa been the enter
tainment gotten bp by tl.e young li.lks to
aid in building a si '.s walk out by the church
es. Both tbe I'rrslivterUn ut.i Methodist
chruclies are quiie a di.-iante .'roin uio-t pails
of tl.e town, aid iu muddy weather il is very
disagreeable -tling to an i from chur b.
Generally in auclt caasea, it only wants
some venturesome person to atari the ball
rolling, when utliers fa!! iu the ranks, and
the guod work trots on.
Moving Tableau —Coming Horn a from
Church at liigLt in Jesiip.
Tableau—Uur L-.st Scenc.
Tbe prugratuiua on Lutb evening? was
quite lengthy but with the experience of the
brut evening, ou tbe see Ji.il tbe performances
moved off wore smoothly and bad a better
effect. It bat! been announced that red fire
would be uaed fit councctiou with tome of
tbe Tableaux, but from an unfortunate cir
cumatanie on the first evening, tbey were a
total failure—But on the second evening it
worked all right and p.-o.'uced a splendid
effect whenever used.
Tbe performances tbreugi.iut were inter
spersed with music by Cheeney'a String Baud
not the leaat of ibe good feature* of tbe oc
casion.
The Tableau—Prayer, was beautiful, ai
vi ry appropriately ooei.ed ibe evenings en
teitaiiiiueiit. Tba salutatory addrea i.y F
U. Jacksou waa good aud pertinent lu IDs
occasion.
The Tableaux of the ibe Gleaners Summer
uoou and Idtii)—as repeated on tbe ^d even
ing were beautiful, the statuary Perfect—
and tbe light aplendid.
The statue of the'Skipping Girl waa very
prettv, indeed.
Tbe moving Tableau was very appropri
ate for the occasion.
The Pa Ottiae of Sparky ntider diilicul
tiea was lull of laughable incident* through
out, that caused the bouse to ''come down.''
The Blue Beard Pantomime »a grand—
both in costume, scenery and acting. Espec
ially when Fatitna opens the closet d. i rand
wo see the bends of hia former wives bang
ing by tbe hair Hi ghostly array, the very
picture of death.
Tbe Ups and Downs of a Married life,
abounded in ludicrous incidents throughout
and was a gocd piece of acting.
Tbe Oration and Declamation were both
well done aud reflected credit on tbe speak
era.
it waa intended to have had a paper read
on the aecnnd evening but aa materia!
enough was not furnisb-d iH time to do
justice to it, it wa* omitted.
The singing was done ia tha usual good
style of home talenL
I should like to give a detailed account of
each perlormance, but lime nor space will
not allow it. Altogether it passed off verv
pleasantly and every body seemed satified
with the performance*. Item* of newa re
served for next week.

With ths in view, our ^oif ft rot up
these entertainments, hoping that the effori
they would make might end oar town be
ing provided with sidewalks on every ftiwei
pal streel.
This lime of lite year ia very apt to be wet
and disn?reea*ile, and life pre.tit proved in
be no exception to lha general rule. On
Tuesday evening It waf pleasant enough go
ing about town, iu.t the roads wi-re in ry
bad condition and but lew from the country
could be present. On Wednesday evening
it was very stormy and disagreeable so thai
fewer were present '.ban on the firsteveniiig.

a go. success financially, and a very good
one otherwise.
