I JllES'E. C1A1BEI8, Editor. SATURDAY, - - - JULY 27, 1872. . EDITORIAL. PABACBAPHJ. Harmony does not always exist even among those who dabble In politics. We notice that several of our Democratic exchanges make most terribly wry faces at swallowing the pill prepared for them at the Baltimoie Convention, and some refuse altoeether to do so. Among these I? the Eugene City Guard published and oMmA in Oregon bv Geo. J. Buys, a former resident of this place.

AJtiDST the personalities of the pres ent Presidential campaign there are to be found' occasional gleams of that fun and humor which it was at first thought would characterize the entire canvas but which liave now become noticeable through their infrequency. The latest thing in this line is a very clever pam phlet "That Convention, or Five Day s a THriclan" in which.' while giving a ' full account of the Cincinnati gathering the authors have endeavored to make , a telling cariacture of the present system of national conventions. In speaking of it the New York Time says : The satire is broad and easily appreci ated by the reader. The accounts of Gree ley and how bis aomination was received ur harrowed from Mark Twain, Petrole um v. Naabv and others. . The illustra tions are very numerous, almost every : paee Containing one, and are from the pen- ell Ol iron. era. a vigorous, and some of tbeia .arable originality. . of them are show : eonsid- Few 'subjects have given rise to such I trAtl a ml acrimonious d SCUSB on w..... -. . as has that 01 ine uocirine 01 paput i- i fallibility.

Filled I Tmcmonthly part of Appleton? Jour Catliolie countries, attracts to the full as J wicU thia newly arroused spirit, the 1 nal, including the four weekly numbers much attention as ever. In a late mini-1 ber of the Xorth German Gazette there I appears ari article, in refutation of the j Ultramontane position that no change was wrought iii the doctrines of the Catholic church by its adoption, which cites the' declaration of twenty-seven Irish Catholic prelates, who, in the year 1828 ! attested on oath to Sir Robert Peel that "It is no article of the Catholic doc trines, and it Is not required of them, to believe in the infallibility of the Pope, and that' thev do not hold themselves bound to obey a direction which is moral in its nature, whether such an ornVr has come from the Pope or from aay ecclesiastical authority." The Ga zette asserts that by this fact the in fall i billtlsts are driven to accept one or the other alternatives of a dilemma, either of which must prove fatal. If these Irish prelates awore honestly they were ignorant of the doctrines of their own church if they swore dishonestly they were guilty of perjury in order to gain from the British Parliament Catholic eaaanclpation. JcDorso from the present prospects, the coming county election will be only less exciting than that of the Chief Mag Istracv of the Nation. With five offices to fill there are already no less than four teen candidates, and a strong probabil ity that this number will be somewhat Increased before the meeting of the nom inatlng convention. The office of Pro bate Judge Is the only one, so far as we know, for which there is but one aspir ant, none caring to enter the list against the present Incumbent, G. X. Tuttle For Prosecuting Attorney we have heard of two candidates certain, John L. Branch and J. W. Tyler, and another, J. B. Burrows, possibly this last being desendant somewhat, we presume, on the strength developed by the new party of which the gentleman is an enthusias tic member. , . For Sheriff, we understand that J. M. Benjamin, C. O. Barrett and J. B. Moshier, of Willoughby, are to be the contestants. In connection with . the office of Treasurer, we have heard mentioned tbe names of S. T. Ladd, F. . Hart, of Mentor, and Charles Ackley of Willoughby ; while for the position of clerk there are no less than five entries George Shepherd, F. Paine, Jr Orando Sawyer of Mentor. Thomas King of Madison, and M. B. Cook of the same towh. ' Whether the present Clerk, Mr. Bosworth, intends to add 'his name to the list or not we have not heard. Taken , altogether, however, there are enough rival candidates for the various vacan c-ies t hat are to be, to present a splendid opportunity for the exhibition by each one of all they know about getting them selves elected. WOOD.11AJI SPAR THAT TREE. The question of the 'destruction of our forests is one of vital Importance, not so much because of any fear that the timber will not be abundant enough for years to come, for building or heat ing purposes, as because of its effects up on the climate, and through that, upon tbe growing of crops and the health of the people. -- It is well known that trees are great .moderators of violent extremes of tem perature, because of their power to con . dense the moisture in the air and thus produce a more equable fall of rain which in turn, prevents severe freshets or sud den storms. But the demand which has been made upon the timber of the coun try, to supply building material and the wants- for fire-wood have been so enor nions, that within a comparatively few years, whole sections of country have been cleared and entirely stripped of their forest protections. Nor has this whole Fale destruction, been confined to any one section, although, for.varlous rea sons, the south has suffered less than other portions of the United States. From all parte of the country the reports that come of the climatic changes consequent upon this reckless clearing of wooded tracts, have been such as to furnish rea sonable grounds for the fear that if the destruction of fbrestscoiitinues in the future as it has in the past, the springs nd . streams of the country will lie so dried up as to lead to protracted drouths and to affect in a very unfavor able manner the health of the inhabit ants in every section. At the meeting of the National Agri cultural Convention recently held at St. Louis a full report of which was pub lished in tbe American Farmer ftAdvocate, from which paper we extract the resolu tions given below this subect received considerable attention, and a committee, appointed for the purpose, submit- , ted a lengthy and carefully prepared report, at tli end of which were the fol- ' lowing resolutions, an attentive cbnsid eratlon of which was earnestly Recom mended. ' 1. That we recommend farmers through out the United States to plant their hilly . r waste land, and at leaat ten per cent, of their farms, with trees, in such manner as to provide shelter belts or clumps and rapid growing and useful timber, 2 That we solicit the legislatures of the several states to pa laws providing J bounties ror planting trees, encouraging nec the Dlantinz o the highways, and a tor ine i provision ol state nurseries 01 young um ber trees and also the appointment ol an arbor day for the annual planting ot trees. as has already been done in the tate 01 Nebraska. 3. That we ask the Congress or we United States to require, so far as practi cable, that railroad companiesand settlers hereafter receiving ine Deneniminenonie- stead and other acts donating lands, shall plant with trees, one-tenth i tneiana so donated. 4 That we urge upon the professors ot agriculture in the several colleges to give their special attention and mvestigtion to this important subject. 5. That we ask tbe railroad companies of the country whose necessities have led to the destruction or so large a quantity of our forest to co-operate with us in restor ing the timber growth, and that tbey will provide for the planting of such lands as may be at their disposal and are adapted to the purpose, with timber or trees. Although the measures suggested may not be in everv respect the best- that could be devised, yet their presentation, by those who - posses'? a thorough acquaintance with the subject,' shows how necessary is some action or legisla tion in. regard to the matter. A Straw. Whether permanently successful or not, tbe recent move of the clerks in our mercantilQ houses, to secure to them selves a portion of their time for pur- noses of rest and recreation, is so far significant as that it is, to a certain ex tent, a sign of the changing views of the present time in regard to the subject of labor. Everywhere there is a growing inclination to devote fewer hours to the toil of profession or trade, and more to the demands of pleasure or repose, and everywhere the movement is met with that certain amount of recognition which renders its consideration intere3tin because betraying: the existence of a wide-spread cause. . . . It is undoubtedly true that, until a comparatively recent period, Americans were the hardest working people on the face of the globe rpi, c f.,:.i u osv vi '"'"' I and pageant and holiday, immediately preceding the discovery of America, was suddenly invaded by a resultant energy, and with the opening of commerce, the suddenly invaded by a resultant energy, 1 an,l with . nr-nino- of commerce, the ,.. j. .

They easily recognized the duty of labor, but failed to perceive the claims or needs of recre ation. The forest stretched before them and must be cleared. ' The prairie lay in view, and, its broad , surface must I yield to cultivation. Rivers must be onagea, teiegrapnic communication es- tablished, railroads bMilt, copimerce ex- tended, cities erected, the Jog cabin of the nioneer reolaced bv structures of brick and marble, the wealth of the country developed, and, in a word, a world must be wrought opt of a living wilderness, before the thought of rest could be entertained, i All these have not yet been accomplished it is true, but their approximation is producing a re action which is the remote cause of a movement that is seen as well on the coast of the Pacific as the Atlantic, and in the Northern States as in those of the Gulf. In short, civilization has pro duced an appreciation that demands an opportunity tor cultivation. No one denies but that the professional man, the artizan and tne business man alike, are all too frequently oyertaxed- nelther does anyone but admit that some solution must be found for a problem arrising fioni tbe force of a reaction in the social organism but with thnse ad missions there comes to all, the vital question, as to how the remedy shall be provided. But with those various de mands, that seepj as straws to show the direction of the coming wind, there is the encouraging fact that as .yet tbe movements are the results of a compara tively healthy agitation. For this rea son it is is not unreasonable to hope that the day is not far distant when, through the Increased productiveness of our fields and our industries, and the application of science and invention to agriculture and manufacturing, fewer hours labor per day and fewer days labor per year, will supply the needs as well of tbe man of business as of the laborer. JIISTRESS AND MAIS. 'Find two matrons together any where and tbe chances are strong that they are discussing that acknowledged greatest plague of life, servants Kr sep vantangalism as the vexations and an noyances of this necessary but almost unendurable evil have been designated by'Punch. In fact, the airs and pre tensions of servants is the inexhaustible subject of complaint with all American housekeepers ; and to those inexperienc ed in the matter the many instances of their impertinent assumptions would apt- pear almost incredible were it not for their coming so ..,-.11 .,n. One would think that Ireland in throw ing some ' millions of her population upon our shore had emptied, for our special behalf, a land of milk and honey, a paradise of ease, plenty, luxury and wealth. It Is really exceedingly 'difficult to believe that hovels, dirt, pigs, potatoes and rags have been in truth the story of these people's lives rthat they have stepped from besotted ignorance and wretched poverty to enter one's domicil with sneers at, its simplicity, contempt for its absence of wealth of complaints at the amount of work.. Let a lady at tempt, in these present days, to hire a servant and absolutely she must undergo a catechism she must almost have the hours of her meals dictated must subr mit to exactions, accord privileges, and quietly bear impertinences that only stop short of open dispute as to the control of the household. Not long since we remember to have read the apropos anecdote of a gentleman who in searching for a servant was so wearied at the intolerable demands and impertinent questionings of ait he encountered, that at last he entered fije rooms of an intelligence office and in a loud tone expressed his wish to obtain two. ladies who would consent to come and sit in his parlor for the pittance of eight dollars a monthf It was true there was work to be done, but his wife and daughters would no doubt be glad to at tend to these matters and leave the hon ors of the house to those who might thus consent to fill the situation if any could be found who would not consider even those duties too onerous. The fact is, the European masses fly to our shores with the most preposterous ideas of the "land of liberty." They seem to be oppressed with a vague, shad owy, indescribable conception ofa free country where exist the largest wages for the least labor, the utmost freedom of speech, a magnificent equality and a supreme independence to say, act, do, am) perform as one pleases. Their minds appear to be fermenting in a contused, rhapsodical, wild, upside-down Fourth of July oration In which all their life long habits of subordination are up rooted and all their common sense, de cency and perception of place are utterly swamped, But, although, when one thinks of the demagogueism with , which their minds are crowded, all this is not so much a matter of wonder, yet it is none tbe less i - geary that some reined v be devised To a certain extent tbe employing f ne - . . ... groes furnishes relief, for with diem na ture has set a bound beyond which they cannot go. In time too, the importation of Chinese, who are said to make most excellent house servants, may serve as a partial supply for the demand, but the true and only remedy must be looked for bevond and below these in the educa tion and training-f girls so that they may be fitted for the supervision or per formance of domestic duties.-. Remove the fact of dependence and servants are deprived of three-fourths of. their power. In fact it ought to be considered quite as necessary to train girl? for household duties as to instruct them in reading,' writing, and all the other branches of education--. If the - wife, kaews bow- to "keep bouse," if she understands how- to "set the table, ' if she has learned to cook, to make beds and to perform all tbe other duties of a family she is far on the road to independence and has no need to submit to impertinences and ex actions which are simply tyranieal. r Excbaireo In the Atlantic for August John A Bolles tells ""Why Semnies of the Ala bama was not tried;" James Parton contributes an article on "Jefferson, Governor of Virginia;" John Hay does not add to bis reputation by a poem of the Commune, for the story has been better told in better verse ; T.

The Orerland Monthly for August has reached ps during the.present weeV and is fully as good as usual. We have never yet encountered an inferipr article in this magazine.

Altlrough some qf its articles occasional- i iv evince a iacK oi rnerancai doiisu ann refined scholarship, they never contain any thing like the namby-pamby plati tudes with which many magazines ot a "riper civilization" are so frequently saturated. Nervous force, earnestness of purpose, and directness ot expression are its most prominent features, which plainly indicate the characters of its contributors.- The August number, now before us, - is ' specially illustrative of that point, being nued w in terse, vig orous , strongly-worded articles that en force and retain attention: "A Chapter of Condensed History" discusses Japan I past, present, anu prooauie iuture UUIIUILIUM MI IUV1U M lliabl M-H 114411 neF.

Greeley's supporters xiiu allegations uiaue ny me liemtutica are supported by numerous affidavits and by references to a voluminous cor respondence. The charges made are substance as follows: I. As early as September last, .Mr Greeley was approached by prominent Liemocrajs w;tu a view to securing him as the candidate of. their party in the presidential campaign of 1872. II. lhese negotiations, conducted on the one side by Jewis Carniiehael an Horatio Seymour, and on the other by Horace Greeley, Waldo Iiutchins and Reuben L. i enton, resulted in the nos- itive declaration by Mr, Greeley that, if the nomination were tendered him, he would consent to be the Democratic can uiuaie ior i-resiuein in is2, i his as surance was giyen verbal ly to Mr. Car michael in October, 1871, III. Among the opinions subscribed to by Mr, Greeley, was one exuressin his approval of the payment of pension iu reoei suiuiei&, : IV. Mr, Greeley Is therefore the can aidate ot the Democratic Party, and th "Liberal" Republicans were as srrossl'- deceived by the professions of his friend! at Cincinnati, as were the subscribers to the Tribune -who were entrapped into renewing their subscriptions lor a Re publican paper alter Its editor had so cretly sold himself and the influence o his paper to the Democrats,' " To' these charges the Tribune.

Horatio, Seymour Secre tary ot state, m case ol fiis election to the President s chair 1 1. Mr. Greeley wrote many letters i reply to invitations to become a cand date for the Presidency but he never said in a letter, that ho would accept the nomination. III.
