, Vf publish this week our second an
nual Premium List and Clubbing Bates
and believe that an examination will
: show them to be the most liberal and
the most complete of any ever before
offered in this section of the State. We
would invite especial attention to our
Clubbing Rates as as there-are no less
than one hundred and fifty of the best
-magazines and papers in the country in
cluded In the list- and by availing them
selves of the rates there affixed, our pat-
' ons can effect a saviDg of trom flfty to
one hundred per cent, (specimen copies I
of nearly all the publications on our list I
can be seen at this office.
. Ovn exchanges . are still filled with
long accounts of the continued preva-
' lence of the horse disease, .and in those
sections where its ravages are the most
violent the excitement concerning it is
reported as being so great' as to even
overshadow that attending the political
- contest. In Buffalo, Rochester and other
eastern cities, and notably in New Tork,
' there is not sufficient horse-power left to
move the business population, let alone
the transportation of merchandise,build
.ing material and food and fuel supplies.
Many suggestions are constantly being
made as to its treatment and the causes
which brought it into existence and con.
-cerniag this latter it is noticeable that
-all agree in pronounceiug It the result
'of uncleanliness, want of care and im
proper or insufficient food. This being
true, the loss entailed by the epidemic
may possibly be attended with good re-
wilts, If only it shall have the effect to
teach the masters and mangaers of the
horse the necessity of more constant
. care for its comfort and protection. It
is an: indisputable fact that as a rule
there is too much severity and cruelty
and entirely too little attention to qua!
" ity of food, regularity of rest and com-
ifort of shelter manifested by those who
are entrusted with the handling of
' horse-flesh in the heavier occupations
where the auimals are employed. If
then' the present experience shall be
able to teach that all this must be changed
t and that- humanity is a business neces- I
. sity, it is possible, as we said oetore,
'that the present loss may result in good
and prove a valuable and. needed lesson.
On Tuesday next according to the
frequent utterances and well-supported
assertions of the past four months, the
country is to be irretrievably . lost or
saved, just aa the one or the other can
didate receives a majority of the votes
to be cast for a choice of our Chief Mag
istrate. " Possibly this may be so. But
one of the brightest page in Roman
history is that which records the ovation
to a military commander because, al
though returning beatenfrom a campaign
he yet "had never despaired of the Re
public". And we believe .in the fullest
exercise of that sturdy Boman virtue to
lay, and. feel that we have far better
grounds on which to rest our Implicit
faith than had he who marched under the
. Eagles of Bome. There is a melancholy
brood of croakers, who are forever slan
dering the present, denouncing the de
cadence of human virtue, and predict
ing the speedy ruin of the country,
with whom we have but very little 'pa
tience and positively no sympathy at all.
And all the more insufferable are these,
because, for the most part, their doleful
prophecies and "opinions are tounded
upon no better ground than the success
' ' of this or that political faction. If their
pet lot of log-rollers fail, or if that set
of wire-pullers get hold .of the offices,
: the liberties of the Republic will be
knocked into smithereens, and all vir
tue and prosperity given over to the
owls and the bats, tor our part we

conscience remain. And these will re
main to us so long as general education
and a field for honest industry prevail
in our land. . Whatever may be the re-
suit of the impending elections, wehave
' no doubt of the continued growth and
' glory of the Republic. The-nation is
'"greater than parties, and in the exercise
of their enlightened judgment the citi-
'.,y.ns can and will correct the evils and
,: errors of .the past. ..Whatever, there-
fore, may be the outcome of the politi
cal contesty we may justly look forward
to the ever-Increasing power and pro-
, . gress of the Republic-r-a progress toward
,ji more perfect day, a day of sweeter
manners, purer laws, greater culture,
niore Hbsolute justice. The tendency of
the., world, despite the jeremiads of
; croakers, is steadily toward the light
and the truth.
' 1 LefendisrFactn!
As there is no nation without its le-
: gends its shadowy fragments of truth
' and fiction handed down from the cloudy
confines' of pre-historic antiquity eo
there is no portion of a people's litera
ture so dear or so cherished as this,
. True the authority upon which these le-
' gends. rest may be questionable or even
unknown the incidents may be fantas
tic and fabulous but they are fraught
with lessons drawn from the beneficent
and the heroic and commend themselves
, to the human mind through that which
Carlisle has so aptly called "the virtue
of a proneness for Hero worship." Nor
are their effects light and transient. In
the infancy of literature it is the bard
- or the minstrel who first rouses the peo
ple's mind to a perception of the unseen
world of thought and by them abstract
Ideas are clothed with the vesture of in
dividuality arid action in the person of
: some . hero whose name and - exploits
became teachers to all the generations of
their race. Fable and legend are ever
the- favorite' teachers of infant
nations as well as of children, and
though both the one and.the other may
.; outgrow the simple tales of early lessons,
yet their Influence remains for aye,
It is therefore with feelings of real re-
, ' gret that one finds studious and schol-
arly'men, industriously at work through
" vears of investigation, to prove that
their national legends have no fouuda-
d at Ion in fact. Amitting their labors
to have Ufeen so far unsuccessful as to
: have 6hovn the falsity of the supposed
-".facts upon which the legends rest, what
possible good has been accomplished
when all this poetry of the past shall
have been made to yield to the realistic
... spirit that prompts the investigation?
1 And apropos of this, there just now
comes to ns from across the ocear. the
new -that learned men are at work un
' dcr the sanction of the Historical Socie
, ty of tho old Swiss cantons, to show
, that the legend of William Tell is purely
' inythlcal and had no foundation inac
tunl. firm fact. We are even told that
the learned Kopp has brought forward
. evidence from which he reaches the con
delusion that there never was any Wil
liam Tell never any tyrant Gcssler
that neither William Tell or any other
man was ever required to shoot his arrow
at an apple placed on the head of his
own son, and that the barbed point from
crossbow never pierced the heart of the
cruel Governor. Possibly all this may
really be true nud iossibly the historian
Kopp has been successful in thus tearing
off the legendary veil from the skeleton
facts that led to the foundation of the
Swiss Coufedeartion. But what great
good, to history even, bas been accom
plished by all this? -Indeed what actual
harm has not, possibly, been done to
that country and to the world vy brand
ing as false the subtimest lesou ever
given of., devoted patriotism triumph
ing over the cruelty aud arrogance or
tyrannical power? Certainly it is pain
ful to every mind susceptible of poetic
thought or feeling,to be required by the
evidence of -dry dismal Materia- records
to abandon it belief iu cheruud tradi-
ditions, long accented. as actual events
and & exchange them, - with all their
gow cf romance, . for dull narratives,
around the moral foundations of which
we can gather nothing but dust and ash
es? Is it sufficiently, profitable to com
pensate? .In this one instance Swit
zerland herself, heroic as her brave peo
ple have undeniably been, owes halt her
heroism to the lesson which their Tell
has inculcated in the minds of her youth
and it seems almost a sacrilege for cold-
eyed dull-mouthed History to issue the
heartless mandate commanding that
freedom-loving people of the mountains
to "tear down the flaunting lie." ' r-
By fable and ' allegory all minds aie
first taught abstract ideas. None are
too wise to keenly enjoy the lore . of the
legend which clothes imaginary events
with the garb of personal heroism. No
one can be so prosaic as to De wholly
unmoved by the hopes and straggles, the
embarrassments and the-achievements
of characters for whom his human sym
pathies have been enlisted by the elo
quent story of legend old and rich with
hoarded treasures of thought and feel
ing. Was it not by allegory nd the
parable that the Divine Teacher in
structed his followers and disciples, so
that "without a parable spoke be not
unto them?" The legends of a country
belong to its literature, its history, its
very life. Willing to accept almost any
novelty as history, if so required,' we
must protest against' that realistie at
tempt which seeks to attack the mystic
tales around which are twined the flow
ers of cuikiliood'g Imagination, the
memories of early emulative ambition,
and even the' half-sad half-pleasant sug-
gestions of later life.
BOOKS AND PAPERS.
We have received from the music
publishing establishment' of Horace
Waters,. No. 481 Broadway,' NV. Y.,
verv prettv piece of music entitled
"When the Light Wave Rippling
Play" words by Arthur JMattuisoii and
music by J . It. Thomas.
This Aiding -or November comes to
us replete with gems of literature and
art. " Niagara" is probably the most
beautiful engraving, although all are
good. The poetry, stories, and general
miscellany are excellent, and ' R. II
Stoddard is proving himself fullv able
to edit the most recherche publication in
the country with credit to himself and
satisfaction to his. readers.
The Over iand Monthly for ' November
has reached us, and, so far as we can
judge by a' brief examination," is fully
equal to any of the preceding numbers
Joaquin Miller has another installment
of his "Isles of the Amazons." There
are several interesting articles on general
subjects, some fine poetry, and the usual
amount ot pains-taking editorial: work
Altogether, the -November Imerland is
an excellent number . or : an excellent
magazine.
The story of "An Open Question,
published in Appleton's Journal, by
the author of the American Baron,
and " Dodge Clnb," is so full of interest
that we impatiently await the com in
of each succeeding number;-' Besides
this, the biographical sketches, articles
on art, history and science, the poetry
and illustrations in this weekly periodi
cal are bo excellent that we wonder that
any person of l'terary taste is not

We have received the second number
of a new illustrated magazine published
by T. Elwood Zell, under the name of;
ZeWs Monthly Magazine. ' It is a very
neatly . printed "forty-page publication,
and seems to be well calculated to take
a position as a popular, interesting work.
The present number contains several in
teresting articles, and, as a rule, the ' il
lustrations are good. .As to the especial
objects to which this magazine is to be
devoted, perhaps , we . cannot - do better
than to quote the closing paragraph of
its own prospectus: ' lo sum up the
heads of our undertaking, we purpose
to make of Zell's Monthly Magazine a
popular serial; of an eclectic character,
as well as a hand-book of encyclopedic
reference a work which shall form an
index, so to speak, to all those current
sociai, scientific and literary events of
importance which may arise to attract
the public interest and attention. The
work wiil be issued with due ' punc
tuality, and will receive every addition
and improvement that time or circum
stance may suggest."
In providing reading for your fami
lies, do not forget your children. ; They
need a weekly paper as well as the older
folks, and a good paper of that kind is,
the Bright Side and Family Circle, Which
is published by the'Bright Side Compa
ny, Chicago. This Company suffered so
much from the great fire a year ago; that
they were able to issue it this year only
once a month, but they have so far re
covered from the effects of the fire, that
they will issue it weekly again in 1873,
at f 1,60, and every subscriber will havo
a handsome Chromo, which alone will
be worth more than the price of tiie pa
per. Specimen copies will bo sent to
any who ask for them.
Naturally, with the reception of the
November number of Scribnar's one
turns to read the opening . chapters of
Arthur Bonnicastle's" Dr. Holland's
new story. After reading it, it is impos
sible not to experience a feeling of regret
that omy one chapter, of, perhaps, a
dozen pages, is given, although that is
amply sufficient to awaken interest and
give, promise of futnre excellence.
Probably we cannot do better than 1 to
quote and endorse the following from
the New York Evening Post: "There
is a good deal of quiet humor iu the
dialogue, and the characters are. fresh
and natural, while the style of the
descriptive passages, it need scarcely be
said, is fluent and fascina ing. Much
of the effect of Dr. Holland's writing is
to be attributed to the ease and grace of
the composition. The dramatic promise
ot Arthur itoumcustle, however, is such
as to make us regret that the author has
not been writing novels these mmy
years."
From. the hands of the lady canvas- j
sers who are about to introduce the work
to the citizens of this place, we have
received a copy.of Dr. Cowan's "Science
of a new liie." We have not read the
work thoroughly, but Have examined
it with sufficient ease to ia ..able to
recommend it to all who may have it
brought to their notice. Its scope is
prettv well indicated by iu dedication
"To "all the Married, but Particularly Jo
those w no contemplate .Marriage
And
it is a work devoted to all that relates
to marriage. In treating the subject the
doctor writes with' the most downright
plainness on the most delicate matters,
but with the "most perfect purity, - and
with an evident intention to do good.

without debasing. The work is published
by the doctor himself, and is sold

white inhabitant, except ' the employes

country is rich in pasture '. and timber,
but has no cultivable land worth speak

but no running streams to irrigatethem.
To-day we crossed a valley, or rather a
depression, some ten miles wide and
reaching as far as 1 could see from north
to south, completely matted with the
white-top bunch-grass, which make the
richest pasture in the world. But the
Indians ten me tnattne wnoie tract con

the face of the peak drops off au angle
apprently of seveuty degrees for three
or four thousand feet; at the bottom of
this begins a plain, broken by offsets and
chasms, extending four or. live miles,
and broken by ; an abrupt gorge, some
3,000 feet deep, at the bottom of which
appears in furious whirls and rapids the

Friend Chambers':'. Having spent the
most .of my time, in, Nebraska for the
last two years,: I have received numer
ous letters from parties in Lake eounty,
inquiring as to the soil, water, timber,
chances for getting homesteads, Indians,
&c. ; but not being-' settled,' and travel
ing the most of the time, I found it dif
ficult to answer all such inquiries; but
having returned home some three weeks
since, and being confined .to my house
with the fever ami ague, , and having
every other day to myself, I thought it
best to answer the ' numerous questions
through your paper.. ''AS to 'the soil, I
think it is the richest and easiest tilled
of any land I ever saw. We had the
finest crop of wheat and corn I ever saw
grow out of the ground a great many
pieces of wheat that went as higli as 35
bushels per acre. As for timber, it is
scarce not enough in most places for
fuel; but we can get plenty of coal at
$8 per ton, aud the farm ers say that they
can raise corn for fuel cheaper than they
could chop the wood if they had the
timber. As for water, they have the
very best and plenty , of it. As for
homesteads, the chances are just as good
to get good laud as ever. The land in
the Platte Valley is mostly taken up,
but there is plenty of JJ. P. R. R. land
to be had at from $5 to $8 per acre, and
there is just as good land in the smaller
villages that is subject to homestcaiHng.
The country is being settled verv fast.
and I think the next year will see every
loot oi tne government- iana taxen up.
There are a few thousand Indians left.
but they are just as harmless as the
whites. They are all sef.led on reser
vations, aud are under the charge of
the Quakers, They have good schools,
and the children are making fine pro
gress in civilization. The Indians arc
not permitted to go outside their reser.
vation without a pass from their agent.

A synopsis of the October crop report
of J. R. Dodge, Statistician of the De
partment ot Agriculture, indicates the
comparative production of wheat, oats
and barley, and the condition of the
corn crop on the first of October. The
record of the yield of wheat is quite as
variable as was that of its condition dur
ing summer. : : Some states have made su
perior crops, and others almost the poor
est ever grown. 1 The New England
States have nearly their usual average.
The middle States and Maryland togeth
er have reduced their last year's aggre
gate from thirty-seven million bushels to
twenty-four million, or thirty-five per
cent. The Southern States, from "Vir
ginia to Tennessee, which were known
to have iucreased largely their wheat
area, appear to have enlarged their pro
duction fifty per cent,, or from eighteen
million bushels to twenty-seven million.
California has increased her product at
least seventy-five per cent. Minnesota
and Iowa have made a material increase,
while Missouri and Kansas, the former
growing winter wheat mainly, the lat
ter both winter and spring, have had a
comparative failure in both varieties.
Virginia and Kentucky have had good
crops, while Maryland and Ohio return
diminished yields, as does the entire dis
trict between Ohio and the lakes, the
Miami and the Hudson. - Returns have
been received from counties represent
ing a large proportion of the wheat of
each state, which Indicate an increase of
l auoui nve per ceni,
over the product of
last year, which is estimated at 23,000,000
bushels. It Is probable that the comple
ted estimate will not fall short of 240,
000,000 bushels, upon an area a little
less than twerty million acres. This
will make the yield between twelve and
thirteen bushels per acre, which may be
considered an average-for the United
States. The increase in the states west
of the Mississippi appears to be about fif
teen million bushels, or, in comparison
I with last year's products, eighty m
to seventy million bushels. The

tral line of wheat production, running
north and south, is this year farther
west than ever oetore, and nearly iden
tical with the 00th meridian, wlilch dl
vides centrally the States of Wisconsin
and Illinois. Nearly all the wheat pro
duced between this line and the Missis
sippi river is grown in the western half
of these States. The quality of wheat is
better than last year. The percentage
of product, in comparison with last
year, in each of the States, is as lollws:

Mr. Jionneri ..
- Dear Sir. In the spring ot 1868 a di
sease broke out among my cavalry horses
at Fort Sumner, .New Mexico, t hat ap
pears to be identical with that, now ra
ging among horse in our cities, and in
a very lew days oecame an epidemic
At first it defied all treatment, and the
great majority of horses attacked by it
died. On examining the throats of the
dead horses, 1 lound the lining mem
brane of the larynx highly Inflamed and
thickened, and a thick mucous pus lilt
ing it, causing sufflcation. I ordered
all horses on the first appearance of the
disease, to be thoroughly rubbed betwee
the lower jaws and along the larynx
down the neck with spirits of turpentine,
causing a very severe external irritation
and blister.
I saved every horse thus treated, end
In a few days entirely broke the distem
per and checked the epidemic.
I do not doubt , that thohsands
of horse where this , epidemic
prevails can de saved by adopt
ing this treatment. 'It acts more quickly
as a counter-irritant than any other
I know, and relieves the fever of the
membrane of the larynx in a very lew
hours, ....
Besides, spirits of turpentine is al
ways at hand, and can be more readily
applied than any other, counter-irritant.
It should thoroughly be rubbed in
through the skin, for a distance of some
twelve or fifteen inches under the jaws
and down the neck of the horse, imme
diately over the larynx. The remedy is
severe , and makes the skin sore for sev
eral weeks, and for an hour causes great
suffering to the horse. But It acts
promptly and effectively, and, in my
judgment, it will be found the best, and
perhaps, the only cure for this fearful
malady, causing such suffering and loss
among horses throughout the country.
My love of horses induces me to ad
dress you, and to ask you to give to this
communication such place iu your pa
per to reach the public in the most
prompt and general way, and stay one
of the greatest misfortunes now threat
ening all communities, and destroying
by thousands the noblest animals created
for the service of man.
Very truly yours,

The horse malady has now spread to
such an extent that almost all horses in
New York are said to be suCering, in
one form or other from symptoms of the
epidemic. There are thousands ot hor
ses which have not vet been put upon
the list, but observation shows that many
oi these have germs ot the disorder 111
their system. The disease has thus far
beeir rather slow in its development and
it is not knowu yet whether all its stages
have been seen. It is estimated that in
the city and immediate vicinity there
are from thirty to forty horses suffering
trom well developed symptoms. The
disease has begun to exhibit new and
alarming phases, which are looked on as
highly dangerous. The inflammation ot
the throat extends to the lungs and rap
idly ' grows more alarming, and the
coughing grows more convulsive, the
animal pants for breath, and becomes
quite cold at the extremities. This
seems to be the warning ot the malady
and if it continues as widely prevalent
as it is now a lew days longer there can
belittle doubt that hundreds of horses
will die,
The street car companies, some of the
livery stable proprietors, ad many of
the down town merchants are still work
ing their diseased horses,and in all these
cases signs of fatality are becoming more
alarming. 111 staoies wnere au bust
ness is suspended until ' the disease is
mastered, very tavorabie reports are
made; In some instances the con vales
ence is very rapid. T netaotters and ra
cers stabled in the city seemed to have
nearly escaped disease. American Girl
is already almost recovered from her
slight attack.
At least three hundred cars have been
withdrawn from the city railroad liucs.
In this branch alone the disease throws
a thousand men out of employ. Hack-
men have almost tripled fares tor pas

stock cannot hold 'out longer than Sun
day night. No stable reports, as yet,
that any horses have been perfectly
cured.
