May Heaven forefend and pro tect us from ever coming sunder the pow er of thd'Bdchanan.pftrty again. :. On this subject we append a letter from one of the mostalented as wclhas honor able Douglas Democrats of the country : " A genuine Democrat is always the friend of his country. His. creed istihe Constitution and' the Union. Hc has that reverence for his flag which enshrines it among thefdiviniiies of his conscience. He worships it as the embodiment of tol eration, liberty and law. To tell such a man that the heretofore recent leading or acles of the Democracy are now in arms against this fla, is not to insult, but to gratify him, because he knows it is true. The fact is, the rebellion deprived the old Democracy of its most gifted, most reck less, and most powerful leaders. One rea son for their forcing on the var was be cause they believed that, having so long dictated terms to " the party," they could carry the Democratic masses with them wnen they resolved upon Secession. aThey, had taken ample and systematic precau tions to this end. I have it from the best authority that Mr. Jeffersron Davis had manipulated certain of the Breckinridge chiefs in the free States so effectually as to lead him and his followers to believe that when the Cotton States passed into the outer glr.ora of treason, Jfennsylvania would follou them. .Now is it for ment to be supposed that the era. bo ready to enter their own States and they knew to bo as -Union, hare ever forget, the d Are the ers the tri- cmocracy, the BrUMHIhoHld refuse to carry out tho bargain? or;tqinVke such terms as will bring back the Jtraitors to power, or save, them fromhe suspending 'halter? As pertinent'tp these questions, let me ask if you have' ever gone back to the time wheu the Breckinridge papers in the free States were inv danger of being mobbed and "torn out after the fall of' Port Sumter ? A number of them were torn out. Tfot one of them but'did not tremble before the awakened wraWof he community around them.

The question arises, how rmuch is to be gained by allowing the Breckinridgers to triumph under Jtie name of Democracy ?

IVfy belief is, after a somewhat" care ful consultation with loyal men, that no matter what name the combination against these influences may assume, whether Re publican or Union, there is every disposi tion to do all that can be done with honor to unite for the purpose f defeating the Breckinridge organization. American (Pa:yStandard. 1 1 t 1 JFla? Culture and Machinery. It has become an important question for our country, whetherflax culture in the Northern and, more particularly, the "Western States, could not be brought to rival the cotton culture of the South if machinery were invented for cleansing the fiber and spinning and weaving it, equal to the machinery used for cotton. According to the history bf cotton grow ing in the South it appears that the inven tion of Whitney's cotton tgin and the natu ral adaptation of tho soil were the two great causes which led to the .present very extensive cultivation of cotton. This was about the beginning of the present centu ry when flax was considered a very indis pensable crop among our farmers, but its linty product has since been superseded by the cotton of the South perhaps only through the invention of the cotton gin. We ceciftJRfucse a soil in the West which flax 100 lbs per acre cotton lands of the ; and with much less the breaking, scutching ich should be performed In England, the spin- aving of flax is now accom- machinery with a rapidity little the spinning and weaving of cot- 80 that there would at once be a f or- ien Market if the raw material were raised by the farmers of the great West. A machine that would perform for the flax grower of the West what the cotton gin of the South does for the cotton grower, would'be a great desideratum. Scientific American. Traitors at the Nobth. Our Gov ernmeqt refuses,to allow such newspapers as are openly in favor of the rebellion to have a place ih the mails. This is right. Common sense approves it. But treason is cunnia'g. It is fertile in expedients. In the loyal States there are managers of newspapers, who, deeply sym pathizing with the rebellion, or cherishing a deep anxiety to make money by ostensi hie sympathy with it, are "wary and pru dent enough not to declare qutright in fa vor of it, and at the same time are doing whatever-tby dare in the way of promot ing; it - They ikra avideatly performing the work of thenightsof .tbe.Goldem Circle.

The difference between 7 and 8 is not very great , only a single unit. And yet that difference has power over a man's whole temper, convenience and dignity.: Thus, at Buffalo, my boots were set out at night to be blacked. In the morning no boots were there, though all the neighbor ing rooms had been served. I rang. I rang twice. liA pretty hotel nearly eight o'clock, going out at nine, breakfast to be eaten, and no boots yet." The wait er came, took my somewhat emphatic or der, and left. Every minute was7 an hour It always is when you are out of temper. A man in his stocking feet, in V third story of a hotel, finds himself restricted in locomotion. I went "to the 'door, looked up and down the hall, saw frowsy cham Dermaids; saw afar off, the master of the coal scuttle; saw gentlemen walking in bright boots, unconscious of the privileges they enjoyed, but did not see any one com ing with my boots. A German servant at length tame round and ruddy-faced, very kind and "good natured, hone?tand stupid. He informed me that a gentleman had al ready taken boots No. 78 (my number.) He would hunt him up ; thought he was breakfasting. Here was a new vexation. Who was the man had taken my number? Somebody had them on, warm and nice, and was enjoying his coffee, while I walked up and down, with less and less patience, who had none too much at first. "No ser vant returned. I rang again, and sent en ergetic and stoccato messages to the office. Some water had been spilled on the floor. I stepped in it of course. In winter, cold water feels as if it burned you. Unpack ed my valise for new stockings. Time was speeding. It was quarter past eight; train at nine, no boots and no breakfast. slipped on a pair of sandal rubbers, too large by inches for my naked foot, and while I shuffled along the hall, they played un and down on my feet. First, one shot off, that secured, the other dropped t the stairs ; people that I met looked'as if they thought that I was not well over last night's spree. It was very annoying. Reached the of fice and expressed my mind. First, the clerk rang the bell three times furiously, then ran forth himself, met the German boots, who'had boots 79 in his hand, nai row and long, thinking, perhaps, I could wear them. Who knows but 79 had my boots ? Some curiosity was beginning to be felt among the bystanders It w&s likely that I should have half the hotel inquiring after my boots. I abhor a scene. Retreated to my room. On the way thought I would look at room 77's boots. Behold, they were mine. There were the broken pull straps ; - the patch on the right side, and the very shape ef my toe infallible signs! The fellow had marked them 77 and not 78. And all this hour's tumult arose from just the difference between 7 and 8. I lost my boots, lost the train, lost my temper, and, of course, lost my good man ners. Everybody does that loses temper. But boots on, breakfast served, a cup of, coffee brought peace.and good will. The whole matter,tpokra ludicrous aspect; I moralized upon that infirmity that puts a man's peace at themercy of a Dutchman's chalky Hadjjii written seventy-eignt, I had been a good-natured man, lookiagat Niagra lajla in .its winter, drest.

Thailand should have been deeply.pTowed in autumn so as .to secure a fine tilth. -The-swd, which should, if necessary,, be carefully freed from the seeds of vweeda by screen ing, is usually sown broadcast by thehand, and covered by harrowing with the grass- seed harrows and rolling; nine peck's1 is the usual quantity of seed 'for an aere. The flaxv crep in the NorihT of Ireland, where markets for its sale exist and . where it is. carefully cultivated and pre pared for sale, is very wnmnerauveso much as 20 (100) clear profit over- all expenses, rent of land included, being frequently realized. Unless under very careful "management flax is However, a most precarious crop ; and, while, on tho one hand, it may be the most Valuable which the iarmer can. grow,. on-the other, it may be the most worthless. Hence' tho extension of its cultural ..beyond 'theIax growing districts should be cautiously un dertaken; and hence, .also, the. reason for the very contradictory .statements which one hears regarding' the, productiveness and value of the crop? The above is from" the Irish Agricultural Review and waj intended for the sowing of the seed in A.pril in that country it will answer for May in our Western, Mid dle and Eastern States. , , Watch Your' NxioHbOBS.
