SHEEP.—Our friend Isaac Negus has been
Appointed agent for the sale of sheep by ex
tensive stock growers in Ohio. Any one de
airing to purchase will do well to call on hitn
at his nursery, three miles from the city, on
the Wilton road. Sheep raising is now a
profitable business in this country, and should
be engaged in more generally.

Coot.—John II. Wallace, a MuscatiiwCop
perhead, sent word the other day to the
editor of the Muscatine Courier that he
would cowhide him if he ever was attacked
personally in his paper again. The editor re
plies by exposing Mr. Wallace's disloyalty,
giving him several severe cuts, and then ends
by coolly telling him that the Courier office
is open from 7
A. M.
to 7
the recent Union meeting at that place, says:
Hon. D. C. Cloud distinguished him
self by delivering one of the soundest and
most argumentative speeches that we have
ever heard in the State. We always knew
Mr. Cloud to be one of our ablest men, but
this speech'surpassed our expectations. We
say to the city of Muscatine, you have reason
to be proud of your distinguished champion of
the true Union sentiments. The contrast be
tween Mr. Cloud and the Copperhead, £. H.
Xhayer, may be estimated by the treatment
extended to them whilst addressing the citi
aens of our county.
Mr. Thayer, at Grandview one week ago,
was treated to groans, hisses and a profusion
of eggs, while Mr. Cloud was listened to for
two hours, with the most profound attention
aid respect, by one of the largest crowds ever
assembled in Louisa county.
THE 7TH CAVALRY.—This regiment, which
has been in process of organization at Daven
port for some time past, is now nearly full.
One battalion has already been mustered into
service and paid off. A second battalion is
^rtning in the Western portion of the State,
Mtd is nearly ready to undergo the same ope
ration. The third and last battalion will be
filled up speedily. It is supposed the regi
ment will go to Fort Randall to watch the op
eration of the Indians in that vicinity. The
men comprising the regiment are all good
ner., and will win for it, if opportunity is
erer offered them, a name for valor, second
ihly to the glorious band of heroes who car
ried terror to the hearts of the foe at Belmont,
and gave to the 7th Iowa a reputation second
to none in the service.

py You can now get at J. A.BISHOP'S
Mo ine Flour made of one-third Winter Wheat
and selected Spring Wheat. Those who have
tried this article say it is better than any
Spring Wheat Flour made in the West. As
it costs no more than common Flour, it is
worth a trial, particularly as you get it de
livered at your house without any charge for
drayage. You can also get at BISHOP'S a
pure Winter Wheat Flour, which has proved
itself fully as good as any St. Louts Flour,
and a great deal cheaper. In buying your
other Groceries, if you will call at BISHOP'S
you will find you can save money. He is
selling all kinds of Groceries at very small
profits and low prices, considering the times.
He always has a very large stock of goods on
hand—buys for cash, and gives his customers
the benefit of his cheap buying. Go and see
for yourselves, and you will be convinced
that BISHOP'S is the place to get^our Grocer

A War Democrat vs. A Batieraai.
KKITHSIU'RG, III., April 28.
FRIEND MAUIX It may be interesting to
your readers to learn how the Hon." J. C.
Griffin, Probate Judge of Mercer county, was
last week divested of his Butternut emblem
at the county seat, (Aledo,) where the Pro
bate and Circuit Courts wero being held.
Last Thursday morning several men were
standing in front of the Barton House,
amongst whom was the Butternut Judge,
sporting his butternut on his watch guard,
when one Hardy Morehead, a war Democrat
and a paroled prisoner, stepped up to the
Judge, saying, "Judge, does that represent
your principles?" To which he replied, "it
does," when Morehead took the badge of
treason between the thumb and fingers of
each hand and snapped it in two and threw
it on the ground and stamped his foot on it.
At this the Judge said, If you was a gentle
man, I would resent it." Morehead replied
he did not know whether he was a gentle
mm or not, but he was a soldier. Two or
three other parties were wearing the same
kind of badges, but after that they disap
peared. It is the wrong place for traitors to
wear their treasonable emblems in a county
that has sent forty-three and seven-tenths
per cent, of her fighting men to the war.

AT THE
HEX-ROOST.—The Courier
of yesterday contains an account of a meet
ing at Grandview on the 11
tb. Grandview is
15 miles distant from this city, by railroad.
The meeting was held on the 11th, resolutions
adopted on the 18th, and the proceedings
published on the 28th. Mr. Thayer was in
troduced without the prefixed, but
with "Esq." affixed. After the speech, and
when all hands had gone to gazo upon the
proud Websterian orator illustrating the prop
osition that "distance lends enchantment" to
the smell as well as the view, a committee of
five was appointed to draft resolutions ex
pressing tha^sense of the meeting. From the
composition of the committee we take it there
are six Democrats in Grandview. Being too
few and mean withal to procure the use of a
church, a school house, a dwelling or a cor
ner grocery, the committee agreed to meet in
a cooper shop, on the evening of the 18th.
The committee met, adopted resolutions ex
pressive of the sense of the meeting of the
11th, but didn't submit them to those who
composed that meeting. There are several
important omissions in this published report.
Mention is made of the election of Squire
McCleary as President, but none of his re
treating from the stand through the back
yard, before the speech was concluded. No
official information is given of those stones,
eggs, sticks, &c., that were thrown at the
speaker while he was speaking. No mention
is made of how the orator acquired the title
of Hon.," and no resolution asking the
publication of his speech. Not a word is ut
tered about outraging free speech, throwing
odoriferous eggs, retreats through back alleys,
&c. But then the last notes to the printed
edition explains the whole.
The Judge proposes to call a mass meeting
of the six Copperheads of Grandview, to vin
dicate free speech and provide better eggs for
carrying etta more vigorous prosecution. «f
peace.
FAIRBANKS' SCALES.—Having learned that
in some cases, persons with whom we have
no connection whatever, have been traveling
through the country representing themselves
as our agents, or as selling scales made from
Fairbanks' patterns, &c., we deem it proper
to say that the genuine Fairbanks' scales are
made only at Saint Johnsbury, Vermont,
where they have been made for thirty-three
years or more, by E. & T. Fairbanks & Co.,
the original inventors, and that others repre
sented as such are only imitations. If the
agents for such other scales have confidence
in their merits, they would have no occasion
to resort to such means to sell them, or avail
themselves of a reputation which the Messrs.
Fairbanks have honestly earned. All our
traveling agents will be furnished by us with
certificates of agency, which they will be hap
py to show to purchasers with whom they
may not be personally acquainted.

"A WnoppiNG BIG LIE."—The telegraph
informs the world that letters have been re
ceived in Washington, "that within twenty
four hours after Gen. Thomas' great speech
at Helena, Ark., 25,000 colored troops in that
vicinity were recruited." This is one of the
biggest lies of the season.
Since such a letter could have been receiv
ed at Washington, an officer in the Federal
army, who is now present in our office, left
Helena, and he states that he is ready to be
sworn to the statement that less than THREE
HUNDRED negroes had enlisted since General
Thomas visited Helena. He states that any
number of cavalry companies were sent out
in every direction to hunt up negroes, and
that all the negroes they could find, were
driven in like sheep to the slaughter. This
300 is the 25,000 which the lying telegraph
tells such a lie about.
MB. MAHIN—Sir: The above was cut from
the Courier of this day. To let the public
know who tells the "big lie," I would say
that Capt. Schenck, of the Commissary De
partment, late from Helena, says the tele
graphic dispatch referred to was true except
the error in it made by the printer. It should
read 2500, in place of 25000. He was there
and saw it, and says further, that the negroes
make the best of soldiers and when we con
sider the character of Mr. Schenck and the
fact that he left here to join the army with
strong prejudices against the negro, and in
the last Presidential campaign supported a
southern man for President, I think as much
confidence ekn be placed on his statement as
on the Courier man, who is afraid to give his
name.
By-the-way, I would like to know why
Judge Thayer never gives the names of those
soldiers who so often send orders for his val
uable paper. Can it be that the Judge is so
anxious to have such orders that they only
come to him in his dreams at night Per
haps the crowing cock disturbs hi# slumbers,
and the remembrance of his visit to Grand
view and his emerging from town amid a
shower of hen fruit and the groans of those
Black Abolitionists," all conspire to cheat
him of that sweet restorer of exhausted na
ture," (sleep,) which is necessary for every
one, and more especially for editors of public
journals. -fkam.

WASHINGTON.
The Army of the Potomac Reinforced—
Maryland Politics—Arrest of Spies Here
—etc., etc.
WASHINGTON, April 25.
Queer things frequently happen in all the
civilized portions of this world, which has
given rise to the hackneycd expression—truth
is stranger than tiction. The Army of the
Potomac has had a queer history—very. And
that is true, whether we take in the lump or
by detail—whether we consider its history as
a whole, or reflect upon what varied and ro
mantic interest must necessarily belong to
each particular regiment, to each company,
yea, to each^individual member of an army
which has marched much, fought much, and
"experienced" much "quiet" But the other
morning a very strange, I think it may safe
ly be cal'ed very unusual, occurrence took
place. Tho first corporal of a certain compa
ny gave birth to a tine hearty boy I The said
corporal was on picket at the time, too. You
may be certain it made considerable noise
among the picket guard. It was christened
Picket Falmouth."
This corporal was the wife of one of the
members of the same company—a good Ger
man soldier who volunteered long ago, but
could not persuade his spouse from doing the
same thing. She has been enabled to con
ceal her sex up to yesterday morning, when
this little incident necessarily let the meal out
of the bag. She had been a good soldier, re
markable for a quiet, retired demeanor, and
for courage in action. Sho will now doubt
less be honorably discharged the service, but
can consolingly reflect that, in the opinion of
Napoleon at least, she is a greater woman
than was Madame de Stael.
There was a tremendous Union meeting at
Baltimore on Monday night of this week.—
I understand from several who were present
that it was the largest gathering which has
been held in that city for a long time. I al
lude to it now, for the purpose of putting
upon record some of its doings and sayings,
which go to show that the anti-slavery feel
ing in Maryland has acquired wonderful
strength within the past twelvemonth. One
of the speakers, Mr. Bradford, of Delaware,
made use of 4he following language, which
was loudly applauded:
But now, fellow-citizens, I am going one
step further. I say this institution (slavery)
has not only produced this rebellion, it not
only stands as an obstacle in the pathway of
success, but, unless it is rooted out, you nev
er can have a reconstruction upon principles
of harmony. We are to judge the future by
the experience of the past, and I say, in ref
erence to this institution of slavery, that we
never can have a reconstruction of this Union
unless this cause of the rebellion is rooted
out and this Government has the power not
only to protect the life of the country, but to
put down the rebellion, and to protect it on
such terms as will enable it to be reconstruct
ed upon principles of harmony hereafter."
Among the patriotic resolutions adopted
the one which follows was received with the
most enthusiastic cheers:
Resolved, That the safety and interest of
the State of Maryland, and especially of her
white laboring people, require that slavery
should cease to be recognized by the law of
Maryland, and that the aid of the United
States, as recommended by the President,
ought to be asked and accepted to alleviate
the public and private inconvenience incident
to the change."
Permit me for a moment to call attention to
the particular phraseology of this resolution.
Why do the people of Maryland, who know
all about slavery and hate nigiers supremely,
want to get rid of the institution You can
bet your bottom dollar they hate negroes
with as mnch intensity of feeling as is possi
ble. It is not because they have any the
least respects for the right9 of negroes, that
they favor emancipation, but because they see
with their own eyes that the safety and inter
est of Maryland, and especially of her white
laboring people, demand emancipation. That
what is the matter. White laboring men
see that they are wronged and degraded by
contact with slave labor. They demand
emancipation as due to labor. Such is the
phase of the question in Maryland and while
it will undoubtedly terrify such men as Roger
B. Taney, and other anti-deluvian fossils, it
will attract the respect of all who desire the
true welfare and prosperity of the State. A
large majority of the people of Maryland are
now more earnestly devoted to the Union
cause than ever was the case before. They
will elect at least three Emancipation-Union
ists to the next Congress.
James L. Addison, Chief Clerk in the Ad
jutant General's Office, and Anthony Addi
son, his brother, Chief Clerk in the Pension
Office, were arrested here, the other day,
charged with giving valuable and important
intelligence to the enemy. No body knows
what evidence there is against them, except
the Government officials, but the arrest has
caused considerable of a flutter in all the De
partments, not one of which, with shame be
it spoken, but contains scores of officials who
are not entitled to as much respect at the
hands of the Government as the rebels in
arms. They are rebels at heart, no man has
ever heard them utter a word in sympathy
with the Government in this terrible struggle
for its life. As Jim Lane said about the South
Carclina rebels, "I hope to see them all in
hell, and that right soon." Certainly it is a
crying, most lamentable shame, and atrocious
infamy, that any such should be in the ser
vice of the Government. Perhaps the case
of the Addisons may serve a useful purpose.
I will be glad to say so—when it does.
Gen. Fitz Henry Warren of our State is in
the city on official business connected with
the army. He is looking hearty. Capt. Van
deventer, of Clinton, is also here. Mr. Pay
ton, of Davenport, has received an appoint
ment in the Treasury Department. So has
Mr. Stone, of Mt. Pleasant. LINKENSALE.
THE CULTDRB or TOBACCO.—Tho following
are some interesting and apparently practical
instruction*, condensed from the Michigan
Farmer, as communicated by a cultivator of
the weed: He states that the latter end of
April, or early in May, is the time for sowing
the seed in the Northern and most of the
Western States. Connecticut tobacco seed
is best for Northern cultivation, and the six
teenth of an acre of ground devoted to its
culture will supply the wants of any farmer
who indulges in its use. The soil should be
put into good tilth—plowed deep and render
ed quite mellow. A light sandy soil or loam,
well supplied with roiled stable manure,
raises the finest tobicoo. A strong-flavored
tobacco is raised from what is called "a rich
strong soil." A quantity of wood ashes
mixed with the soil kills insects and promotes
the growth of the plants.
First of all, a seed-bed is made and the
seed for sowing is mixed with ten times its
weight of fine earth and some wood ashes.
Tho seed is then sprinkled evenly over the
bed, and it is not raked in, but simply beaten
down gently with a spade. This seed-bed
should be in a sheltered position, and when
the plants start they should be covered with
a little straw every clear night until all signs
of la'.e frost have departed. When the plant*
are about live inches high they are tit for
transplanting. A cloudy or rainy day is best
for this operation. They should be set out
about two feet apart each way—three feet is
the Virginia rule. But before the plants are
set, a small quantity of rolled stable manure
should be placed in the spots intended for
etch, and the earth drawn towards them to
form small hills. The plants must be hoed
as often as necessary to keep down the weeds,
and a sharp look-out must be kept for the
"tobacco worm," which delights in commit
ting ravages on this plant. This worm is
about one and a half inches in length, and
should be looked after every day.
When the plant begins to head, it should
be immediately cut back, so as to leave from
six to ten leaves suckers then begin to
spring out at the junction of the leaf and
stalk. These should be nipped off (some,
however let them grow nntil si* inches
long, then pick and dry them, thinking them
more choice for various purposes than the
larger leaves,) as, if allowed tb exist, they
will take much from the full development of
the main leaves.
Planting is done in May, hoeing and over
looking^ n June, July, August and Septem
ber cutting and housing in October in the
Otber months pulling the Reaves
off the stalks,
JN THE SOUTHERN,' PLANTATIONS, A
woman are allowed throe acres to manage.
When lipc, the s'alk should be cutoff near
the ground. When tobacco is ready to cut
up, it must be attended to, or it will spoil
especially if frost is expected there should be
no time lost.
Tobacco of commerce is generally divided
into three qualities. The lower leaves, or
those which touch the ground, are liable to
git dirty and torn but on the higher parts
of the same stalk two different sorts of leaves
are generally found one yellowish and one
brown. These should be carefully separated
and put up in bunches somewhat th'cker
than a man's thumb, and tied round with a
thong made of the leif itself. The bunches
should be thing in pairs across poles and put
in the drying house. Too much heat will
spoil the whole crop. More depends upon
proper drying than any other part to deter
mine its market value. The heat of the dry
ing house should be moderate, and the dry
ing should be slowly conducted. The very
finest qualities of leaf tobacco will be destroy
ed if they are subjected to a high heat in the
drying-room.

A word of solemn consciencious advice to
those who will rcflect.
A class of maladies prevail to a fearful extent iu com*
munity, dooming at least 100,000 youths of both MXN
annually to an early grave. Tlioso di*e&s6H are very
imperfectly understood. Their external manifestations
ot symptoms are nervous debility, relaxation aud ex
haustion, marasmus or wasting and consumption of the
whole body, shortness of breathing or hurried breath*
Ing on ascending a hill or a flight of stairs, greut pal*
pitation of tbe heart, asthma, bronchitis and .sora
obroat, shaking of the hends and limbs, aversion to so
liety and to buui ess or study, dimness of eye sight*
ross of memory, dizziness of head, neuralgic pain In va
bious parts of the body, pains in the back or limbs, lnm*
ca^o, dyspepsia or iudigestion, irregularity of the bow
tjs, deranged sections of the kidneys End other elands
ef the body, as loucurrliuea or tlUur albus, Ac., irulent
diseases in both male and female. Likewise epilepsy,
hysteria and nervous Fpasins.
Now, in uinety-nine cases out of every one hundred9
all the above named disorders and a host of others not
named, as consumption of the lungs and that most io^
•idions and wily torm of consumption of the sp***!
nerves, known as Tabes Dornaies and Mesenteric** have
their seat and origin in diseases of the P»*lvi" Viscera.
Henee the want of success of the old school practice la
treating symptoms only.
Dr. Andrew Ston?, Physician to tbe Troy Lung and
Hygienic Institution, is now engaged in treating this
class of modern maladies with the nr.ost astonishing
luccess. The treatment adopted by the Institution is
new. It is based upon scientific principles, with new

their homes, in any part of tbe country, trom accurate
inscriptions of their case by letter, and have the medi*
lines sent them by mail or express. Printed Interroga
tories will be forwarded on application.
