SATURDAY, - - - JULY 27, 1872.
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

AJtiDST the personalities of the pres

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 :

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
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.
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
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
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

revival of learning, and the decay of
serfdom, consequent upon that discov-
erv, men rushed Into activity with a I
force proportionate to the extreme from
earij settlers of our country seemed to I
think that unceasing toil was the final
end of man's existence. 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.
'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
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.

"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

The Judge was the only speaker-th-t

There was no enthusiasm, and the meet

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

hiKliest prospects for the future. Throughout ,
the year just past il has endeavored tofufBl, aud

ture the aim of its editor and proprietor will be

be asked than that furnished by its past record.
New attraction-, are constantly being .prepared
lor its readers and none will dispute the asser
tion that its enterprise and energy have already
won ior it a foremost pla e in the ranks, of co-
teinporaneons publications. By its influence the
newspapers of this seetion have been driven into
exnrtion never before made and while the pa
pers nere are now a pride to every citizen it
ought not to be forgotton that their marked im- j
provement has been made within the year last
past or in other words since the establishment
or the Journal.

to every class of the reading public.
