THE 11B LI A L I ).
. AGRICUL TIT RA L E-icoiirav M iiiiiiurlorifs. It i only in the sclionl of experience Hint the ni3.cs ot the triple come ton realization of facts :is tlicy exi-t. There are 1 lit few- who learn, cxceiit i:i tl i-s comparatively dear s-ehool. Farmers, from the" nature of their occupation, will, a? a nile, admit of na guide ex empt this. Aggregate fact, learii)g up on their lni.-ine.-s, cons-titule the basi upon which they build. With them all utilized labor is money. There is no lack upon their part of introducing improved machinery for this purpo-e. J5y its introduction, the fanner is en abled to triple his capability of pro duction. This would all be well enough, and his prospects would be assured, if the coiiMimption of his pro ducts could lie proportionally increa.-ed. There are other tilings for farmers to consider, as well as the best methods if increasing the productive capacity of their landj. In this latitude, corn is king, and the hog is no second rate power in the realm. But what would this enormous orop of cither amount to, if the wants of the consumers of them were in the inverse ratio to their jtortion? There must be consumers as well as produ cers, and as the producer has the cost of tranjK)rtation to pay that is, it is invariably deducted from the price awarded in thf leading markets of the world,, does not the consideration of the question of transportation become one of the vital importance to the pro ducer? What, then, is the proper course to pursue. Shall wc continue lo pay the cost of transportation, or pliaH'we bring the consumer to the corn? Common sen?e says, encourage immigration. Itf-ays, create a market at home. It Fays, develop the min eral resources of your respective Slates. It says, utilize the products of the for est and mine by manufacturing them. 3t Fays, avoid tninsiMirtation as much :is possible, and .bring the consumer and producer into closer proximity. The farmer is more interested in the development of manufactories than the professional man possibly can be. The encouragement of local manufac turing enterprises is the height of wis dom, and the increased attention which the memlicrs of the farmers' organiza tion arc giving to the subject, argue tvell for the future. There is not a town throughout any of the corn pro ducing States that should not contain one or more factories devoted to some special industry for which the location is peculiarly situated. There is no reason why the woolen mills, foundcr ies, tanneries, plow and wagon facto ries, boot and shoe factories, fruit dry ing and canning establishments and agricultural implement factories, should nearly all be concentrated in the large cities. The farming commu nity, in order to be prosperous, must have a good local market. The pay ing of freight on what they sell and what they buy, with one or two com missions added thereto, makes it lively for everybody but thenisclve. Such a policy is a suicidal one, and the soon er a contrary course i adopted the bet ter it will be for the farmer. There fore, we say, as soon as the work of or ganization is formally completed, set about devising ways and means for es tablishing local manufacturing indus tries. Where there is a will there is a way, and if unity of action and har monious counsel prevail the humblest lieginning that you may make will, in a few years, lie productive of great re sults. If assured of the hearty co-operation and patronage of the fanning f-omrnunity, manufacturers can he in duced to invest capital and establish manufactories of various kinds, where, under such circumstances as previous ly existed in the farming community, from lack of organization, it Mould have been impossible. Therefore, we fay, to food-producers, it will pay you to offer in j-otir organized or individu al capacity, the use of your surplus cash capita' to the manufacturers at a com paratively low rate of interest, to ena ble him to bring his employees to your very door, and thus create a demand, not only for your staple crop, your corn and hogs, but for your perishable horticultural products and vegetables as well. Therefore, m-c say most em phatically, begin at once to adopt the principle of bringing the consumer to the com. I.caiiing Without Looking. Some of the agricultural and "sec idat" papers make their columns lively with advice to all good husbandmen to engage in various enterprises "witl millions in them," and thousands of farmers, one after another, a ercmual crop, are acting on the suggestions. The strawberry speculation is perhaps widest spread, and stacks of plants are set each year without ever bearing fruit enough to pay for what they co.-t. Fancy poultry U tempting, and high priced eggs are lmught, and may be a few chickens are hatched, but in the end it is discovered that no hen will lay two eggs a day. The bees are rcc ommeiKlcd, especially for Momen, and a good deal of studying i done, but the honey i not abundant, and year after year the complaint i made that "this is the worst season for bees we ever had." Some undertake to raise mushrooms without knowing a mush loom when they sit- it; others, reading that duek are sent to the London market by the ton, get eggs and go to hatching, while others still, plant grapevines by the acre, or dwarf peas by the thousand, and in most cases the conclusion reached i, that corn i a gxid crop, that jwtatoes always sell, jtnd that nothing U much better than a few three-year-old steer.-to turn oil in the spring, unless it bo the value (if the same in wool. The continued dis appointments are due almo-t wholly to a want of knowledge in regard to details, and to acquire this is to ac quire what may be called a trade. Nothing would seem more simple than to rai.-e strawberries,, and the majority fail, generally for want of well pre pared ground and the necessary culti vation, and it is probably true that it will take a man live or six years before he can find out what is the matter. And so it is in all other pursuits and enterprises. It would be "splendid," as thegirl say, if one could be born with hereditary experience, so as to take up the thread where the old folks left ofI7 and many an aged man and broken man knows that if he could have had this inheritance, with all the checks and safeguards that it brings, ho Mould non- be rich and happy, in stead of poor and acquainted with grief. The-next best thing, in the ab sence of such hereditary gift, U to feel our way and look before leaping. X Pot ale that Kcsisls Hie Colorado Kcctlc. A. Jackson, of Frederick count-, Md., communicates the following inter esting facts to the Baltimore American Farmer, which he-says, ean be attested by the sworn testimony of two of his laliorcrs: About five years ago he re ceived from Xew Jersey a peculiar kind of red potato, under the name of Silurian Rod. It proved to le a very prolific bearer, and of a monstrous size, very mealy and wholesome for the ta ble, though sonic purple streaks would occasionally run through the tubers. Last summer he planted them in hills four feet apart, between young grape vines which stood eight feet by eight feet, and raised on one acre a little bet ter than one hundred bu-hels of mag nificent potatoes, lie fertilized the hill by mixiug lime with ten lier cent. of salt, and mixing old cow manure with about ten per cent, of said lime and salt compound. He used a good shovelful of it in every hill, and em bodied it nith the ground (.clay soil) by digging. The result he says, was astonishing. When the potato bugs (which had then appeared in myriads) had cateir olf a vine, presently two or more vines would shoot up, keeping on growing until the November frosts killed them. Mo-t curious of all, they bore here and there small potatoes (not seed b:dl-) on the vine. One re markable hill yielded forty-five aver age-sized potatoes. All bis other kind, Early Rose, Pcachblow, Early Goodrich, though treated in the same manner, were an utter failure. For (he Hartford Herald. "HARD TIMES." The American people arc to-day in a condition, and that condition is any thing but enviable. They are, in a financial sense, sick and very sick and unless they get relief, and that oon. many ot us must at no distant day go "where the woodbine twineth," .ind be numbered among the failures of the nineteenth century, ami it will at last Ikj said of ns that wc were thriftless, and anything but benefac tors to our race. The questions naturally arise in the mind of every reflecting man, What is the remedy? And where is the balm to be found which will heal all of our financial ills? Wc do not want a palliative merely, but a permanent, substantial remedy: one which can be relied on as well in adversity as in prosperity. It is the opinion of your humble dolt that the trouble lies in a great measure at our own doors individual ly, and, if wc ever get our heads above water again, there must be in individ ual as well as a general effort. The reformation must begin athoinr, right around our own firesides, in teach ing our own children good, sound, moral, useful lessons in all things which would be useful to them in after life, and better fit them to fight the hard battles of the future, and in set ting our own houses to rights general ly; improve the culinary department, and thereby we will make our sanitary condition better; and then thoroughly renovate our farms, from every panel and fence corner throughout its entire length and breadth exterminating every ti.-ele.-s briar and shrub, and set ting every foot not otherwise used in grass or clover, according to its adap tation. To enable us all to accomplish these very desirable ends, it will be necessary for a large majority of us to use the following once a day, to be taken on retiring lo bed at night: Equal parts of yeast powders, which will make us ric early; an equal por tion of cap.-ieuin, wich Mill stimulate us to action; the same amount of "loco-motion solution," well shaken, and with equal portion of industry, ener gy, economy, faithfulness, sobriety, virtue, honesty, truth, temperance, and hist but not least, a double portion of common sense, the great lever which is indi-pensable at all times to put the machinery in motion, and run it with out friction and too great M"a.-te of grease. Now, brethren, Patrons and all, let us strive with all our might, to get up and bring about a general reformation in agriculture and education in the Green River country, for as little as is said on the subject, a good common school education is alino-t indispensa ble to success in almost any avocation, (pardon the digression). Let us see if we ran make the farm pay. Quit our lazy, slovenly manner of half-doing thing for that which i worth doing at all is worth doing well go to work and develope our va-t mineral as well a agricultural resources, and thereby we will become exporters to a greater amount than wc are now im porters. It is a lamentable fact, that after nesend all of the barter we have to spare to Europe, it fall short one hundred and fifty millions of dollars of ballancing our import account, and thL amount must be paid in gold, or Eogli h exchange, it equivalent. Everybody wants everything from Eu-i rone, and it all has to- be paid for in gold, except the little raw material which we hare lr ft over after our home demand are supplied, which i :r small portion of cotton, wheat and tobacco, lience the high premium on gold. Can't these evils be remedied? Wc answer emphatically, they can; and they mut be before we are a prosperous people. The.-e things cannot be accomplished in a day, by a spa-modic effort, with a leap in tlie dark, but we must open our eyes, inform ourselvc as to the situa tion and surroundings, and then act like sane men, with a firm and steady resolve that God being our helper we will do better for ourselves and chil dren. Another evil at this time, is the tendency of running to extremes and denouncing all of our old system1! and advocating nothing unless it is new. Space will only allow me to drop some reflection on one of these at this time, and simply give my views of the sul jeet, and ak that some one who may join issue with me show up the other side of the question. And this is what is known a the conventional interest law. Now, I cannot see how a law can injure any one that is mutual and inoperative, pro or con, unless it is so agreed and reduced to writing. It differs from other contract, in thi, that it may be in writing, while the courts will enforce ninety per cent of all other contracts, though they may be verbal. Every citizen of this proud commonwealth should be allowed to pay for the use of any and all commodities, money included, whatever it is worth to him. You have your money just as I have my horse, house or farm. Money is like all other articles of commerce, gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. There have been periods in the past twelve years here that it could not be loaned at any price, but at this time the supply is so meager that it cannot even be had at JlcII.'sruinoti conventional rates, and men are actu ally offering more than 10 percent., and in the next breath, cry out against the law, and say it must be repealed. Borrowers paid more interest under the old law than they do under the present, for under that law whenever money became scarce it varied from 10 to 13 per cent., and it was paid in ad vance, and a note was taken drawing twelve months for the principal. At the end of that time the lender would come on and remind him that he was to pay 10 per cent, on that hist money, and he must pay him another year's inter, est, and he would take a new note for another year. So it was compounded every year. Under the present sys tem I give my note, bearing 10 per cent. There is no dodging to do, and as it is secure, my creditor being full handed, gives mo all the time I need at simple interest. If I choose to pay any reasonable per cent, for money rather than have my property sold for one-half, or, as i often the case, one fourth of its real value, I ought in candor, without a doubt, be allowed to do so under the sanction of the law. Low rates of interest have a tendency to demoralize the money market, drive conscientious men out of the field, which diliiini-hes the competition, and offer a premium to note-shavers, mon eyed corporations, and all kind of mon ey sharks and sharpers to fleece the people at their will. They also favor hanking monopolies, whose terms of loaning money does not suit a farmer or anybody else, their rates being from one to two per ceut. a mouth, and r.inety days is the extreme limit of time. At the end of that time you you must pay up or go to protest, or in some extreme ea-es, if your paper is gilt-edged, the)- will, by youf giving a new note, give what they call an ex tension for ninety days more at these rates, and these are the be.-t any bank gives, and you would at the end of the year have paid from 'JO tooO per cent., it being compounded ever y ninety days; nor will they take any collaterals as any individtnd money lender will do. And lat, but not least, these banks are all Federal corporations, created by the powers that be at Washington to oppress the masses and to make the lucky few who, in the great grab game which has been going on for some time in the capital, have by their feats of legerdemain got rich "richer" and the poor poorer. All of their grants and privilege. are derived from the Federal government, and are out of the reach of State legislation. These institutions, in the absence of any competition, would certainly be come grinding monopolies of the worst character, when wc remember that nine dollars out of every ten borrowed in the State must come from these shav ing shops.

If not, bury them in the editor's waste-ba.-ket without the sound of a trumpet or the toll of a bell. More anon. A SUBSCRIBER, Cromwell, May, 187."). HDUSElSoTo HINTS. To Clean Kii Gloves. A good way to clean black kid gloves is to take a teaspoonful of salad oil, drop a few drops of ink in it, and rub it over the gloves with the tip of a feather; then let them dry in the sun. To Pit event Tin Resting. Rub fresh lard over every part of the dish, and then put it in a hot oven and heat it thoroughly. Thus treated, any tin ware may be u.-ed in water constantly, and remain bright and free from rust indefinitely. Lu;iiT Rye Tea Cakes. One pint of sweet milk, two eggs, a tablespoon lul of brown sugar and a large pinch I of salt. Add enough rye flour to made it as still as common griddle cake bat ter. Bake half an hour in "gem" pan. Serve hot or cold as de-ired. j Chicken Cheese. Did you, read er, ever eat any? We like it. Boil two chicken till tender; take out all the bones and chop the meat line; sea son to taste with salt, pepper and but ter; pour in enough liquor they aie boiled in to make moi.-t. Mold it m any shape you choo-e, and, when cold, turn out and cut into slices. It is an excellent travelling lunch. A Broom Holder. A good broom holder may bo had by laying the broom down with the brush flat, and Wing a hole through the top of the handle with a three-eighths bit. It will not cost a cent, and the broom can hang on any common nail. To Clean Cane Chair-Bottoms. Turn the chair bottom upward, and with hot water and a sponge wash the cane work well, so that it is well soaked; should it be dirty, use soap; let it dry m the air, and it will be as tight and firm as new, provided none of the canes are broken. Western Rural. Cheap Mouse Thai. Take the bowl of a clean, clay pipe and fill it with cheese; put it under the edge of a glas tumbler in such a manner that a slight touch will cause the tumbler to slip off the bait and mouse of course, underneath. I his arrangement will catch more mice than any trap I ever saw, at the cost of one cent. Rural Afit) 1 oitcr. To Break Glass at Will. An- easy method of breaking glass to any required form is by making a small notch, by means of a file, on the edge of a piece of glass; then make the cud of a tobacco pipe, or a rod of iron about the same size, red hot in the fire, apply the hot iron to the notch, and draw it slowly along the surface of the glass, in any direction you please; a crack will he made in the glass and will fol low the direction of the iron. Round glass bottles and flasks may be cut in the middle by wrapping round them a worsted thread dipped in spirits of tur pentine, and setting it on fire when fastened to the glass. Prksruvixc. Strawberries. Gath er and handle the fruit carefully, taking them in the early part of the season, as they are the finest and most perfect berries. Stem, weigh, and place on dishes. To one pound of fruit allow one and a half pound of the best white sugar; sprinkle over them half or more of the sugar, and let stand some hours, or over night if gathered late. Put on fire in close bell-mettle or porcelain kettle, with remainder of sugar. Jsoil and skim about twenty minutes, or until syrup thickens, and first looks transparent, using, during the process, a "silver" spoon, and avoid mashing. Seal up immediately in air tight can; if glass, wrap in paper to exclude the light. N. 1. Oltcrver. AV3I. I'. GREGORY. (County Judge.) AT TOR NE Y AT L A W, HARTFORD, KY.

THE ALDINE THE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA, ISSUED 3IOXTOLT. A MAGNIFICANT CONCEPTION WON DERFULLY CARRIED OUT. The necessity of a popular medium forth a representation of the productions of onr great artists has always been recognized, and many attempts have been made to meet the want The successive failures which hare so inrariabl y followed each attempt in this country to estab lish an art journal, did not prove the indiaee ence of the people of America to the claims of high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an ability- to meet it were shown, the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and the reult was a rrcat artist's and commercial triumph THE ALDINE. The Aldine while issued with all of the rem. larity, has none of the temporary or timtt in- C . . ..... ut uiumaij cnuuicai. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and graceful literature, and a collection of pictures, the rarest collection of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real value and beauty ol The Aldine will be most appreciated after it is bound np at the elose of the year. While ether publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of a similar class. The Aldine is a unique and original conception alone and unapptoached absolutely without competition in price or character. The possessor of a complete vol ume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine pa- per aau engravings in any oiner snape or num ber of Tolumes, for ten timet iu mt; and then, there is the ehrotno, heeidet! The national feature of Toe Ald'ne must he taken in no narrow sense. Trne art is cosmo politan. While The Aldineis a strictly Ameri ran institution, it does not confine itself to tho peproduction of native art. Its mission is to cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, ona that will discriminate on grounds of inlricsia merit. Thus, white pleadingbefore tho patrons of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic, the productions of the most noted American artists, attention will always be given to specimeni from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the pleasure and instruction obtainable from horns or foreign sources. The artistic illustration of American scenery, original with The Aldine is an important fea- -4 tare, and its magnificent plates are of asiza more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment of details than can be afforded by nj Inferior page. The judicious interspcrsion of landscape, , "a"" .uujvi, sustain na unabated interest, impossible where tke scopa of tho work confines the artist too cluselr to a single style of subject. The literature of Tho Amine is a lignt and graceful accompaniment, worthy of the artistic features, with'oaly such technical disquisitions as do not interfere with the popular interest of the work.
