A nOlVt FROM TUH KAILROAII CESTUI. Atchison claim) to be the "greit railroad centre" ol Kanjas, and thu claim, we be lieve, Las not been disputed by any of the other towns of the State. Atchison aim claims to be the liveliest town in the State the liveliest town in the West in lact one of the moet proepcroui and flourishing town in all the country. The people and papers of Kansas have so much respect for the veracity of Atchison and her people, ,hat thev have never disputed even this ex travagant claim. Atchifon aA-e;tu also, that Leavenworth is ike dullest town in all rrealiuu that thee i Du real busina-a dune here, lhatt the h retrln are not fixed for anylhia but cow p.oiurw, that the busi ness liou-es bere are all vacant, and that the few people who still continue to exist here, are without any visible means of tup port, and would all leave if they were not too poor to get away. 2Cow, this is not trie, bat its assertion by Atchison puts us in a dilemma to which there are but two horn?, and we are forced to conclude that either Atchison think it is true, or Atchipon has lkd. The latter horn we should be very loth to take, because if we should be forced by the logic of circumstances to conclude that Atchison has lied about our adversity, the natural inference would be an un comfortably strong one, too, that Atchison has lied about her own prosperity ; and as we should be sorry to think that any of our neighbors are less prosperous than they claim to be, we leave this jaosition, as un tenable, and take the other, that Atchison believes all sheeays about the deserted and generally deplorable condition of Leaven worth. The following paragraph is from the Cliampion of Sunday mcrning: A these refugees are all farm hands, the proper place for them to stop is evidently ljeavenworlh. They might be profitably employed cultivating patches of garden truck in the streets of that city. The ground is useless for any other purpose. And at least five thousand of them could find shelter in the vacant houses of that de serted village. Now, as we have said before, either the Clnmpionit guilty of bearing false witness against its neighbor, or elte it believes what it saya. Circumstances point very sus piciously to the former position, but char ity inclines us to the latter. And, con ceding that our Atchison neighbors believe what they say about Leav enworth, and that what they say about Atchison's flourishing and pros perous condition is all true, we should like to ask our neighbors of the Champion whether they think the pitiful howl which they are sending up erery day, because a few unfortunate refugees have landed at that point, is just the manliest thing in the world? More than a thousand of these people have been landed at the little town of Wyandotte. A bait-load came to Leaven worth from St. Louis, and a train-load came here from Wyandotte. The only complaint from Wyandotte has been that they were coming faster than the people could take care of them, and hence an appeal was made to the public for assistance. In the case of Leavenworth, no complaint what ever has been made. A press dispatch from here informed the world of their arrival, and The Times told the public how they looked and acted. A train-load went to Lawrence, and the people of that place at once set to work to take care of them, but there was no howling and crying because somebody elt-e didn't take them. Several train-loads have gone to Topeka, and while they have been and are (till a prievou8 burden to the people, there has been no whining or crying about it. In all of thee cases the refugees have been rent forward by the people of S Louis to Wyndotte, and by Wyandotte to the other towns, jet none of the towns referred to have raided a howl about the conduct of Wyandotte in sending them forward. Thus far Atchison ha the honor of being Ue only town in the State to cry and wfiin; becnne wm; of these un fortunate people have been sent to her. Her great grievance seems to be that they were eent from Lemenvvrth just as though they had not been sent to Leavenworth from Wyandotte, and to Wyandotte from St. Louis, 'lhe refugees in Atchison were sent there just as other parties have been sent to other towns; few if any of the refugees have been able to pay their fare further than St. Louis, and after arriving there, they have been sent from one place to another by the people along the way. Wyandotte has as many refucces on her hands as she can take care of ; Leaven worth has found homes for one load, and has another load still in town, tjuartered in the colored churches, or cared for in the homes of colored citizens, while two other boat loads are beicg expected. Under these circumstances it is not humane, it is not patriotic, it is not manly, for Atchison to whine like a whipped pjuniel because she is asked to bear her share of a burden which all the other large towns in the State are bearing uncomplainingly. now the virro was i'2ti:iAiti:. It is understood in Washington that President Hayes wrote the veto message himself, and that it was not submitted to the Cabinet until alter it was rent to the House of ISepresentctives. A Washington dispatch on this subject sayf: Although the veto was never discussed or referred to in any Cabinet meeting, the President consulted each member uf the Cabinet singly as to his views on the sub ject. Without giving his own views re garding tbe matter, the President a.-ke 1 his Secretaries what each thought should be done. Then after Jie had obtained the views of a Cabinet oflicer, the President . would remark that he had carefully con sidered the matter in all its details, and had about decided on what his mei-sage should be. Strange to far, all, the mem ben of the Cabinet coincided in their views with the President. This is a fact which may be asserted upon the highest au thority, and it puts to flight theidlerumors that there was a difference of opinion in the Cbinet on the exjiediency of the veto. The President was in doubt as to whether he should return the Army bill with his veto at once, or allow a few days to elape. It was upon this oint that he especially consulted the niem!ers of the Cabinet. They, to a man, advised prompt action, upon the theory that the extra session of Congrats was called for the purpose of con sidering the Army and Legislative Appro priation bills, and that as on accoUDt of obnoxious "riders" to each, they were both to be vetted, it was advisable lo let the House know at the earlist moment the atti tude of the Executive, and to allow tbe Democrats the fullest and quickest time possible to reconsider their policr ami Bake the necessary appropriations for the support of the Government. F.l'BOPEAX IXHIGRATIOX. Among other indications of returning prosperity after the past few years of de pression is the marked impetus lately given to European emigration, which has latterly bees at a comparatively low ebb.

CIIAIlI.EMrit.MCIK. Mr. Charles Francis Adams refuses to say anythinz about the President's veto of the Army bill, not caring to go into the newspapers. "Whenever I have anything to say in them," be explains, "I Cod that I zm prerentlr the recipient of a torrent of letters which I have no time or inclination to answei." KIKIIOP DESIEM. According to the Cincinnati Commercial, Gov. l;ihop, of Ohio, denies the report which came from Clevela-d, that he said that Senator Thurman'a strength as a can didate fur the Democratic nomination for the l'rtride icy wn declining in Ohio. He say he hVi expressed any opinion as to the reiective strength and prospects of Thurman ad Tilden. IMt.V YEK.Sr oiTi: A I X.

This order wa3 issued about ten days ago when it was thought the wheat crop was suffering for rain, but in the meantime copious rrins have fallen, and if the pryers So-day should be answered by more rain, it will bjcome necessary to have a little praying lor a dry spell. THE rREMKYTEKIAa. A r.ew plan on which to unite the Pres byterians of the North has been suggested. It U proposed that the synods shall be larger, and have greater power, and that th-y shall have annual meetings, like that of the re'i eclive general assemblies, and that once in three year3 thTe shall lie a grand aveaibly, or Presbyterian Council. It is not probable that such a radical change in'organiz ition will find much favor. CAM FORMA"! tOXNTITITIOX. It looks a if the new constitution for California, which the people of that State are to decide upon to-day, would be reject ed by a handtome majority. Every day's discussion cf it has increased the number of opponents, for its faults appear to be inex haustible. It rejection will be apt to rid the State of Kearneyism, and bring back a greater degree of stability than has been ex hibited sinca the rise of that noisy agitator. In any event, the question will be settlei and the California pipers will be more in teresting to oub-iders. For the last two months there han't been anything in any of tbe papers of that State but ' Conbtitu tion." ItOTII MTATE3IEXTM ARE TIU'E. The Leavenworth Times of yesterday morning says: "The refugees who came here from Wyandotte a short lime ago have all fecured work and are proving them selves faithful, valuable servants." Either The Times or the Mayor of Leavenworth inut be lying. The Mayor of thst city telegraphed the Mayor of Atchison yester day that there were three hundred refugees at Ieavenworth, and wanted to know whether thevcould be provided for in Atchi son. Or was this one of the jokes of the funny jierson who is Mayor of Leaven worth. Atdiifm Oinwplon. Xeither The Times nor the Mayor of Leavenworth has stated an untruth in this matter. The refugees who came here from Wyandotte have been provided with homes The others who came from St. Louis are still here, provided for temporarily in church building', or in the houses of Our colored citizens. Leavenworth is perfectly willing to do more than her full share in this work, but she thinks that Atchison ought to le willing to dn a little. "IAViiriAvisl After a careful survey of the political field, the Washington correspondent of a Bjston paper gives it as his conclusion that "everthing seems now to be working in favor of Uncfe David Davis, of Illinois." Taking Ihis for a text, the Chicago Timet, which is a very enthusiastic I). D rrgdn, sayr: It isg-nerally admitted that Tilden cannot carry a tingle Northern Htate, and that if he is not nominated he will not allow a Democratic candidate to carry New York. Hence the necessity for a candidate who can carry Western Slates enough to balance the vole of New York. The antagonism of the Hendricks and Thurman factions renders the nomination of either of them an experiment too haz ardous to be tried. The party is thui re duced to the alternative of nominating a candidate with the certainty of defeat, or of nominating Judge Davis with the eer- taintyof succrss: TI!E TRITII FROM THE SOITII. The Memphis Avahndie does not agree with the Louisville Courier-Journal as to the cause of the negro exodus. The -Ita-landu. says the incendiary teachings of the Bourbon press and politicians have fur nished the material now Jfeeding the emi grant movement, as they taught only bit terness, and mirked for social prescription all who relused to submit without question to their partisan guidance. A to perse cution and its effect, the .IrofancAe says: The la-vlc-s classes were but too ready to begin the da-tardly work of jie-rsecution They found it a certain means of i-uppress-in; the ballot. They inaugurated rj-igns of terror, shot and killed where shooting and killirg rcani necessary, and so preyed on the fears of the unprotected blacKs as to practically disfranchise them in every locality where the bull-dozing programme was adopted. And the Bourbon presses and publications, instead of demanding protec tion for all classes under the laws, pro nounce 1 all charges falsehoods, and at least indirectly encouraged the dastards to furtlur d'etds of violence. This is the truth, and the truth should be told. 4.Ai:ils.l. Itl'S CHI LIHt EX. TLe London Truth gives the following in teresting statement of Garibaldi's lamily affairs as an explanation of his visit to Borne: Garibaldi, ss it is generally known, had three children by Anita, the laithtul companion of bis Italian campaigns, to wit: a daughter, Teresita, now Signora Canzio, and two sons. Menotti and Riciotti. By another woman, Franceeca, Le has two more living children, Clclia and Manila. He was not married to either of these wo men. On lhe other haod, he was married to a Signora Raimondi, who on the Gist nicht after the wedding confes-ed to him that she was encicr.le by another man, and with whom, in consequence of the confes sion, he parted at once and ft rever. Now, it results lrom the above circumstances, un der the- ltaliau law, that the only lawful heir to any property feft by Garibaldi is not his own, but Signara Raimondi's The said property, by the way, is merely the 00,000 lire a year voted by the Italian Par liament in perpetuity to Garibaldi and his descendants in the direct lice. The jour ney of the General, therefore, to Rome is fur no other reaeson than tbe advisability of contriving some legal or extra legal ar rangement by which his family should profit by tbe revision of the-annual annuity to the exclusion of tbe strange child. An act of Parliament giving the annuity in trust to the executors ol Garibaldi will most proba blv bi reported to. Drsenes the Fatronase. (Medicine Lodge Crescent, I.)

Qlobt-Democxat, 4.1 We cannot help thinking that the life insurance companies are making a mistake in the course they are pursuing regarding the policies issued by them on the life nf the late Mr. LMigbt, ot omgbampton, 1. It will be remembered mat. several . months ago, that enterpri-ing gentleman, after iomrin hb life in dcz:n Iesding companies for abjut S250.000. tuddenlv died, juu in time to avoid the payment of the second instalment on his premiums. If he had lived for a few days longer his pol icies would have lapsed, bcciuse he could cot have met lhe payments due. But he died in good season, and the companies took pains to bave a cartlul auty of his bedymadeto prove, if possil-'e, that he had committ) d suicide. The examination made by the Coroner s jury, who were aided by a great many medical experts em- ployed by the insurance companies, failed to produce any evidence showing th it death was intentional, men the ineory w adopted that the deceived hid caused bis own death by inducing malarial fever, but, after a time, tvej that theorv was abm dosed. Having f.iltd to establish the ssstimp lion that Mr. Dwight died for the sole pur jxwe of enriching his heirs at law, the com panies announced their intention of paying their policies in tbe usual way. But now they come to the front again with a nw theory of suicide, and another examination of the body is being made to enable them to avoid payment. They cow claim that death was caused by strangulation, and that the strangulation was ace implihcd by mean' of a cord passed aronnd Dwight's neck and slipped over the headboard of tbe bed in which he lay. The supposition is that he devised the icheme and applied the fnT on L? ulck wh;e death overcame i cord nim-elt, and that be then lay reice him. They account for tbe absence of the cord and all mention of it at tbe previous inquest by claiming that there were other parties to the con-piracy preent when death took place. The bedr his been exhumed and n learned physi cian testifies that he has fcund a distinct indentation around the neck, which he claims was made in theniannerdescribed. No other evidence of death by strangula tion seems to have been discovered, which seems somewhat remarkable In view of the many and easily discernible rigns usually left when death is caused in this way. When the first autopsy was made the b;dy was cut and slashed most liberally by the siireon, bat no one seems to have fourd this cord mark or any other proof that death wss caused by compression of the throat. Able physicians testified that nearly all the vital organs were more or less dia eafed, and tlmt in their opinion death was caused by a congeitive chill. No matter how the second examination terminate-, it will have a tendency to raise doubts in the public mind as to the willing ness of the companies to settle their Io.-tes promptly and without cauring a recourse to vexatious litigation. Men who inf lire their lives for the benefit of their wives atd children do not desire to b.queatli law suits which will not only caus: their own bodies to be dug up and cut up, but may also defeat the very purpose of the insurance by defrauding their heirs There are many suspicious circumstances connected with the insurance and death of Mr. Dwight, and it w pavible. though im probable, that be meant to rob the compa nies. But it is quite as pcs-ible, and not less probable, that his death was due to natural causes, and that it was rather a strange combination of circumstances than premeditated villainy that can-ed him to get insured and die as he did It is safe to sav that, if the total insurance on his lif had been but $G,(KK) instead of S2 JO 00O, the companies would have paid it without dodgirg. Having taken larse risks, they i-hould rw willing to assume the conaeqiint resonsibi!ity in a fair and honorable spirit. T2IE COLORE. XOSES. Iap Singleton Epr-.-.- Hi Views nn tin Colored Edtt From Ilic South. lUJobf-Democrat.) Berjimin Singleton, better known as "Pap" Singleton, and who has gained a wide reputation among the whites and peo ple of his own race as "the Moes of the colored exodus," called at the GloU-Dcmo-crt t ffice yesterday and gave a glowing account of the success of the colored set lie meet in Morris and Ljnn Counties, Kan , giving nt the game time a most hoj eful picture of the prospects of the settlers, and the object they intend and hope to compass liefore many "years pass over their heads. As has bsen published before, the Single ton settlement is about sixty miles south west of Tojieka, Kansas, and embraces 100,000 acres of th abandoned Indian Reser vation which the Government now proposes to dii-po-e of at low and alluring rates to stich ierous as desire to make eraianent nmes there. 'Pap" did not know when e land would be placed in the market for actual settlement, but eiip0ed the time could not Ix very far off. lhe tettlers al ready on tl.f land are highly delighted with the change they have made from the uncertain arid unhealthy climate of Middle fenne-s ee to the fertile and rolling plains f the ..-rest West. A number of towns have m ready been laid out, and are in a irogrei- ing way; one in particular, Dun lap, in Morris County, being in a very flatter!' g and flourishing condition. The Smgletfn Colony, in Cherokee county, he also reports as a hxed and indisputable success. "Pap" has beeo, until the recent in creased excitemct took place, constantly traveling backw r.l and forward between Tennessee and the West, and from 1SG9, the year in which he first started out on his mission ot ilelivcriDg the colored people from tbe bondage of the bull-dtzer to the hppy lai'd of Kansas, he carried over 11, 500 of his people from Tennessee and Ken tucky. He is constantly engaged in this work, takirg it up on every hand and urg ing colored men in al the distressed and terror-ridden districts of the South to shake off their thraldom to the Southern planters, and instead of living in a condition ot serfdom, to become free men and good, honest, and reputable citizens cf the Re public He says Kansas is as good a country as the sun ever shone upon, and it is just "the plce for the poor man to look for a home. The product of thesoil will repay him amply for bis labor, and besides this he has the comfort and happiness of health, freedom, and citizjnship. "Pap" advises all who rr3 not doing well here or in the South to pack up and go to Kansas at once that ia the happy land of Canaan, and in the good time coming if thtir cups of jjy don't over flow in an increased ratio to the oveifiow of their grainaries, it will be because they have not made use of their minds and mus cles with which the Almighty has endowed them. He says thereis just as much neces sity for colored emigration from St. Louie as from Mississippi, Louisiana ard lennes see. The cece-sity may not arire from the same causes, but it is still as urgent and hould be as fully recognized. There are hundreds and thousands of colored men here cut of employment, who have not any means of" support and have no near pros pect of work. These men hewould advi-e lo turn their attention to Kansas and the West, and to seek cut new homes for them selves where the field for labor is almost boundless, and the remuneration is far in excess of anything they can hope to ob tain here. " "Are there manv colored people anxious to leave St. Louis?" asked the reporter. Oh, ves," answered "Pap," "a great many. Tne colored people here ae very anxious to get away, but mot of them have no money. I am delighted to see that a real estate association has been started and that already the treasurer holds a good round sum. Tiie objec. of this association is similar to that of one I started in Ten nessee to get money to buy lands in the West, upon which the Degrees can settle. There are many good-thinking colored men bere who can get nothing to do, out wno, it they went out to Kansas, would find em ployment, and would thus be enabled to support themselves and their families, and to bring up their bovs and girls so as to make coed men and women out of them. These people could do a great deal better in Kansas than here." Mr. Singleton said he greatly deplored the split between tbe colored Aid Associa tions, and said there were many "tongue" men in all enterprises of tbe sort, who just wanted to hear themselves talk and others talk of them. These men were like dilap tdt.d wagons, madi a racked when they moved in any direction, but had no bottom to them, that is, they were not capable of holding anything. This character of men hid stepped in between bim acd the glory that attached to his great enterprise. While be was studying out plans for tbe better terment of the colored race, these men were stacdin&idly by and coming ia for tbe fame of the thing. He desired to speak f avora b)y,koTeTer,of tbe work cf tbe two aesocia UMs, mi Mid be did aot wish to go rtv -- , if I any of the organized societies. He thought, ' though, it was high time that color! men should look forward to something more than have a dram beat and society banners wave over them when they were dead, and that now they should begin to understand msi mry were uui living merely lur mem- selves, but to leave something tenind them for their childien The road they were travelirg now was 100 years growiDg, the re w road proposed .would make the trip much shorter, hay ten rears. One of the main objocts of "Pap" Sin gleton's visit lo the GkU-Dtmocrat effij was to deny the assertion made by the Democratic pres that the negroes were leaving the South for political purposes, and at the instigation and by the aid of the Republican party. To this Mr. Single ton HJK ' W't don't leave the South on account of i'liitcal purposes, but to secure for our , telvts homestead) and quiet friends where we would not be awakeued in the dead of tugbt by tbe dread rap ot the messenger ot death and dr.-ged from our beds to be shot i r buug lik dogs by the midnight adniinis- I ret ion.

'Yes, I do," answered "Pap. "It is j'ist as well for the-n to die here M there, ll is better, in ficu" "Pap" then went on to say that the col eiied people were going to Kansas to be Iaw r.biding men and good citizens, where thev would have free speech, free thought and i ailort.' right.

ITopeka Commonwealth, 4.1 Adjutant General Noble returned yester day from the South acd West, where, under the directions of the Governor, he has es tablished the Patrol Guard. Reports everything quiet, and no indications of any outbreak. Personal supervision was given the posting of this patrol, and in the selec tion of a large number of the men compos ing the command. This patrol is composed of first-class citizens, and will make the very best scouts obtainable. It is the in tention of the Governor to establish another post, either in Clark or Meade county, and to that end Adjutant General Noble will visit that section the coming week. This action on the part of the Executive is rapidly restoring confidence to settlers, and will be the cause of populating the Southwest rLpidly and inducing immigra tion. On the whole, the military of tbe State is assuming a shape and form of which Kansas may be proud, and we un derstand lrom the Adjutant Uenerai that his every effort will be given to make a complete and lasting military organization throughout the btate.

"!' X.i, . - Premiums at Fairs. fCOr Chicago Tribune. Probably a majority of the officers of county fairs have already had under con tideraticu tbe annual premium list. As a rule our county fairs run too much to big premiums for fa-t I orses and herds of fat cattle, and do not pty attention enough to breeding stock! agricul ural products, and other things that really are deserving of encouragement. Many fairs offer over two twousand dollars in premiums, over, half of which is devoted to pay for races. which, in the end, are demoralizing, and lead to httinj and gambling. If it is necessary to hive races in Older to have a good fair, make the purses reasonable, and not to the eiciusion ot all ele. Home breeders of cilt ' ht aL'.to encouraged, and the ' show stock," and carry the money out of the county, is the poorest way to do it. Lo cal breeders do not take the pains with meir siock mat inose breeders do who make a businc-s of showinz at ali;the fairs where thre are $200 or $300 to be carried o9 in prizes. Most fair associations also neglect to pay decent premiums on grain, and a naif dczeu sacks and a few baskets of corn ii'uslly make up the display in that de partment. We believe in encouraging the production of fine grain, fine vegetables and fruits, and let the horse rncin? take care of itself. Xarilinll County Agricultural Meet ins. Vsrysvllle Xews,3.

The men who made the experiments last season have furnished us more light by far, on some of these i-oinls, than I have been able to find in all the data to which I vui get access, from this country and from Eu rope. A brief outline of the results of 27 trials on corn with nitrate of silver, su perphosphate and jiotajh salts, each alone, two by two, and all three together, on vs rious soils, some very good, others fair, nnd more verv poor, in good wewtther and bad, from Maine to North Carolina was given in the March article, page 91. The effects of the individual ingredients, as shown by the averages for each exjieriment of the in creased yield on the several plots were, in brief, as follows : Phosphoric acid ia S experiments was de cidedly the regulating ingredient the croj responding uniformly to the superphos phate, and paying comparatively little at tention to the other materials. In 14 expe riments it took a less important, but still prominent place. In o experiments it pro duced little or no effect, the average in crease with the superphosphate on the sev eral plots being, in each case, less than 4 bushels per acre. Potash in 4 experiments, held decidedly, the dominant position; in 14 others the po ash salts were more or less efficient, in 0 the increase with them waj less than 4 bushels per acre. Nitrogen took, in no experiment, the reg ulating place. In lb' the nitrate of soda was more or less useful; in 11 the increase fell below 1 bushels per acre. !The phosphoric acid and potash together, No. V., (No. F, of this year's set), costing at the rate ot v'Jao per acre, brought a larger yield than either of the two with ni trogen the average with these "'miacd minerals" being 4o bushels per acre. This was the mo-t profitable fertilizer of all. The complete fertilizers, No. VI., (O, of this year), containing all three, and costing $10 OS p-r acre, brought the largest average yif Id, 4s I bushels per acre, and thus ex celled the farm manures, which were vari able in amount and quality, but brought on the average 40 bushels. The variations with the same fertilizer in different experi ments were very wide. Tame (;racs. ILawreuce Trlbuue, 3.1 Secretary Gray has correspondents in every county, and he bus made a tabic showing the progress of the tame grasses in eacn county. Douglas county makes an excellent show ing. The correspondents, by the way, are mree in una county, viz: ... ej. Elevens, ol Lawrence; II. M. Greene, of Lecompton, and Wm. Roe, of Vinland all well in formed and truthful gentlemen. Oneof these gentlemen writes to Mr. Gray in regard to blue grass as follows: 'Formerly it was difficult lo get it started, but for the last few years it seems disposed to root out every other variety, if given half a chance. In five years' time the fence corners will be completely set if the work goes on as it has for two years past. I consider that for fenced pasture blue grass stands toward prairie gran as five to one." And again: "This grass seems to be steadily finding its way into all prairie and woodland pastures, and of course is very valuable as pa-turage." Once more "Blue crass here is as sne- cssful as in Illinois, and one acre of blue gra's pasture is equal to two and one-half acres of prairie." Acres of blue graas in Douglas county in 1878-673. We notice that our citv narks an? now beautifully set in Timothy, and Secretary uray nas a good word lrom our county on me iimoiny question, lie says that lrom all reports he concludes that Timothysuc ceeds as well in Douglas county as in Illi nois, and that one acre of Timothy is worth double the same amount of prairie grass for all purposes. Timothy meadow in Douglas county in 1373, 3C41 acres. Timothy pasture 292 acres. Which places old Douglas at the head of the list as far as tame grasses are concerned. But besides Blue grass and Timothy, Red clover makes a good showing for itrelf. Judge Thacher thinks it ought to be mixed with Timothy, and should not be pastured too early in the spring. Clover meadow in Douglas, 1373, 750 acres ; clover pasture, 190 acres. Hints for Sprins Work. American Agriculturist tor May.l Beplanting. There is always more or less replanting of corn to be done, because ol loss by cut-worms, crows, and weak plants. It is well to have a bed made in a warm sheltered place, which may beplanted thickly at the same time as tbe main crop, to provide plants to replace those lost The vacancies in the field may be filled from this bed by transplanting on a rainy day, or when the ground is wet after a warm rain. It is not generally known that corn may be successfully transplanted. Fodder Crops. After the April-sown fodder crops, will come the earlr kind of sweet corn to be cut in June and July, after clover hat been fed off, as a change, or to followearly sown oats. Daring May, win ter rye will be cut and fed, and meanwhile a portion of the clover should be pushed aneaa to iouow the rye. borne early varie ties of cabbages, of which the writer finds Fowler's early drumhead the best for this purpaee on his soil, should be planted out as soon as possible for the cows. A head of this variety, weighing twenty pounds is good mid day lunch for a cow when the eras is failing. As the fodder rye is cut off, in strips through the field, the ground mav be plowed and resown immediately with sweet corn, a second sowing of oats, or set with cabbages. Hones A moderate quantity of sreen rye will be very acceptable to the horses. It will have a healthful effect, aad will cool the system as well as a dose of medi cine.

Oae lunce a day is rufficieai, acd it will prevent possible injurious effects of the fresh succu.eul food which otherSi-HS might appear in the form of tu-verc and dangerous as disorders of the blood. Wa hia Sheep The practice of wash ing sheep before shearing is very disagree able, and is unnecessary. Nothing is gain ed in the price of the wool in lact, the usual deduction made by wool buyers for unwashed wool leaves an advantage with the seller. The practice is dangerous to health of both men and sheep, and may well be abolished. Poultry Youre chicks will thrive best when they are kept dry and clean, and moved frequently to fresh ground. There is no better place for a coop than the gar den through which the chicks will wander freely, picking up or driving oil many in sects. A bed of joung cabbages mav be kept clear of flea beetles, and other crops may be preserved in a similar manner, by a few broods of thicks: Provide an abundance of clean water, tight shelter overhead and a dry floor. There will rarely be gapes if this plan is followed. The Orchard and Cartton. (American AsalcullurUl for May.) Insects will demand attention this month until vegetation ceaes. Much of the success in fruit growing depends ujion the close watching and proper combatting of these enemies. Oaly the leading jests can be mentioned. Bark Lice These, especially the Oyter- ter-jhell iiark-louse, has much increased lately. Jt a tree lrom the nursery is infested, ded't plant it, but charge it to the nurseryman. If an infested tree has been plantad, pull it up and burn it acd plant another. If an established tree shows this pest, paint it over, before the growth begin,with lard oil, or other chetp, non-drying oil. Several have u-ed crude petroleum with success. Canker Worms Birriera of tar or print er's ink upon bands of- strcrg paper, put around the trunk, will kt-ep tbe wingless female from ascending. Where the insects have reached the top, laid eg.:, and the "worms" are already at work on the folia e prevention is u-eless. Birds will destroy some. Some Western orchardists have found benefit from the use of Paris green a tablespooaful to a pailful of water, syringed upon the foliage The Tent Caterpillar We have in time advised the destruction of tbe egg. The caterpillars, when hatched, keep together and form a web or "tent." As soon as one of these is seen, destroy itin the mornirg or evening, when the insects are within. A hand, with or without a glove, to remove the tent, and a foot to criirh the whole, are all the appliances needed Borers sre not batched within the tree. The eggs are laid on the bark, and the cat erpillars then eat their way in. When within their presence is shown by sawdust, by gum, by a depretdon in the bark, all near the root. When disco vereal cni out with a knife or probe, or kill wkh a wire prole. . Curculio, especially destructive to the plum, and often so to the ieach and other fruits, can only be treated by shaking off with a sudden jar, catching on a sheet or some substitute, and killing. If any any one offers a curculio preventive, try be- lore btijirg. Plant Lice, often in crowd on the ends of cherry and other twigSj are easily killed by tobacco water. Thin the Fruit. Really choice fruit can only be had by thinning, and those who grow for market find that it pays. The sooner the thinning is done, after the fruit has fairlyset, the better. Jn moet seasons, one-half is tco little to remove. Rispberries and Blackberries When new shoots start from the ground, allow only thoe to grow that are needed for next year's fruiting. Novices need to b-j re minded that next year's Iruit will be bcrne on stems that haye grown this year, and that those which bear fruit this year will die. Home Markets. It is a mistake to sup pose that large cities afford the only profit able markets. Thosa dealers who pass by nourishing towns and villages to get their lruit to New York, Philadelphia, etc., often makes a mistake. As a general thing small places are jtoorly supplied with fruit, often having only that which has been sent to the large ct-nters, and from thre dis tributed to them. It will pay to build up a market near home. Beans. Do not pnt in the Limas until the long rains are over; thrust them into the soil, eye downward. Two vines are enough 'o a pole, but to guard against acci dents, put in four or five beans to each ; the surplus may be transplanted to fill gaps. Sow a succession of tbe bush sorts BeeU Sow a succession of early, and when lhe weather is settled, put in Long Blood for winter. Cabbages and Cauliflowers. Siw the later varieties. The plants of early kinds needs frequent hoeing or raking. Celery. Sow in seed bed ; be Biire and bring the earth in close contart with the seed by rolling or pattini: the soil well with the back of the spade. If a dry lime comes on water the seed-ted. Tomatoes, in every private garden, should have a trellis of some kind, not only for the sake of better fruit, but for neat ness. Whatever will keep the plants up from the ground will answer. Odds and Fndj. Applv Paris green to potatoes as soon ai tip. Sow sweet herb? in a seed-bed for a sup ply of plants, to occupy the soil when other crops come off". Thin all thickly-sown crops as soon as they can be handled, while the ground is moist. Dust squashes, melons, and all of tint family, as soon as the plants are up, with fine air-slaked lime, or a mixture ol plaster anu allies, to keep oil insects. rnpli-asant Tor the .senator.

A f.errnan .Subject Outraged. Topeka Commonwealth, I. Chas. Bennewitz. acting German Consul at St. Louis, by direction of the German Ambassador at ashincton City, has called the attention of Attorney General Davis to the viol ation of section 3, chapter 33, of the Uenerai statntes ot Kansas ol Iboa, by cer tain officers in Kingman county, in seizing property under an attachment of one Wm. E Viese, a German renident of that can- The complaint is made that the officers eized not only all the property for debt that the law permits to be taken, but took "all tht provisions, groceries, all tetii; tools, household ware, kitchen utensils, all what he and his family needed and had for the next month', so that they are left hun gry and must starve, if the neighbors do not help them." This claim for protection is made by an ttority granted in and by the consular con vention between Germanv and the United States of America, dated June 1st. 1S72. The Attorney General promptly respond ed, that immediate investigation into the charges should be made, and that every remedjr known to the law, looking to the protection of Mr. "Wiese. should be rizidlv applied, acd that if he bad been wronged, me wrong snouni oe righted. Tbroe-and-a-IIair Per Cent ItoniN. The government has in four months sold over 5500,000,000 of -1 per cents, and for the 5194,000,000 last offered to meet the ten forties recently called, the competition was someining quite unprecedented in the his toryof the government. Messrs. Fisk & Hatch estimate that not less than S100.000 - w ci me nve-twenues called in are still in ru-.v e.t - .- .... - ':. : the hands of investors acd institutions, and must seek reinvestment within the next 00 days. At the same time they express the opinion that the amount of capital ot the kind which avoids ordinary business risks, and seeks rather safety than high returns, is rapidly increasing in the United States, and that this amount is teing steadily in creased by the savings of the masses 0f the people. It is rot singular, therefore, that the 4 per cents are eagerly sought for. While English consuls at 3 per cent, sell for 97, a 4 per cent, bond with 27 years to run is, at 11842, the equivalent of a 3 per' cent, bond at par. With this basis of cal culation, it is even thought that before the sixes and fives of 1S31 are reached, the sot- ernmeat may be convinced of its ability to ioaciKs. per eeay cairniiHoa fcrao axe.
