Redner th Taxes !
The publication of the monthly debt Statement give occasion tor another of the senseless periodical jubilations of tin Kepublican press. It is asserted that the national h ht has been reduced more than live millions during the month of August, and the country is asked to admire Presi dent Grant ml his Secretary of the Treas ury lor so auspicious a result. But what have fA done, durinir tin: month of Au gust, to entitle them to this shallow and j fulsome praise? They have been jour neying and junketing, attending dan M and clam bakes, horse-races and monster musical festivals; flitting from place to place on pleasure excursions leaving the Government to be run by clerks and side ordinate; the President and win to Cab inet being absent from Washington, and as free from care as the gayest butterflies of fashion that flirt and talk nonsense on the corridors of the watering -place hotels. If the amount of the debt is lessened, small thanks to our jaunting, loating Presidenl and finance minister, who have contribut ed no more to this result than they have to the unwonted abundance of the August peach crop. Dismissing their agency in the matter as too ridiculous for consideration, let us look into the actual state of the case, and see if it affords a fair subject of congratulation. The debt has been diminished out aftUM! which were laid by Congress before Gene ral Grunt was inaugurated. Ii' Secretary Bout well had never lilted a finger, if no bonds had been purchased, if the Money sent to him by the collectors of the reve nue had lain in the Treasury, the monthly debt statements would nevertheleai have shown a reduction. The net amount of the debt is reached by subt ratting the money in the Treasury from the sum to tal of the bonds anil greenbacks; and the balance would have been about the HUM if no bonds had been purchased. What the country is asked to rejoice over is the enormous amount of our taxation. The capacious pool of administrative wasteful ness and extravagance is not only tilled but runs over, if the revenue were less redundant, if the Dconle were not so " P M plundered by taxes, there would be less money for the Republican olli ials to j squander; and because they collect more ; than enough to gen their rapacity, we j are expecttd to admire them as great geniuses in finance ! Instead of praise for saying a little out of the overflowing reve- ' nues, they deserve censure for spending and wasting H much. The bnjjnew of the , country is crushed ander oppressive taxa- ' tion, and such reductions as have taken ! place in the debt merely attest the prodi gious amount ot the Federal taxea -;- The Republican gtorifcatbm over the monthly debt statements is b.)t!i foolish and knavish. It overlooks the disastrous and ruinous effect of our cruhing taxes. m the business of the count it ; and it ismade a con venu nt cover tor the raseality and extravagance of a spendthrift party. It is used to give a deceitful and delusive im pression of prosperity, which blinds the people to the prn Hgnl expenses of the gov ernment. If the government eosta three or four times as much as it did Ik lore the war, the country is expected to feel that our resources are loundless ami we can afford it, inasmuch .as we have a constant surplus to be applied to the piwiunt oft he debt. That surplus is a trifle, and the country could well enouirh stand it. if it were not for the hundreds of millions that are annually raised and squandered to pro duce this delusive show f prosperity. But the country cannot stand the enor mous taxation by which so many great industries are c rippled ami crashed : ami the fact that there is a surplus over and above the prodigal expenditures of the government, proves that our taxes could be largely and immediately reduced with out injustice to the public creditors, or detriment to ihe public c edit. All that is required ol us is to meet our obligations as they ma'ure; and money that is not nee. nnwy for that purpose 'had better be lelt in the hands of the community to Ihi productively employed in increasing the national wealth. A redaction of the ras cally tariffand the ahoBUon of the income tax are'among the most urgent financial reforms demanded at this juncture of at fairs. JV: Y. Wotht, fkm 2 aaaaaa .. Tlie Political Situation. urn uispatcnes tins morning concern ing the political situation are interesting "and important. Attorney Genend Hoar has at length transacted to the War De partment his opinion with reJerencc to j the question of requiring the Reconstrac tion test oath of the members of the newly elected LagJahtfUf of Virginia. The opinion appears to h a somewhat eompli- cased one, hot the gha ol it i.-. that the adoption of the new constitution of Vir- ginia supersedes the Reconstruction la WS. so far BS . hey could apply to that State, and that that nstrument prescribes the only legal qiialitications ol the members of the L ghdatare This would seem to make th; General Assembly of Virginia a pro-: visional bodj until the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment. That measure baring ben adopted, the Stale becomes rehabilitated and sorereign.

Canbv will proceed to the inauguration of Governor Walker and 1 stt ps be taken to Convene the Hew Legis lature at an early Way. It iurther appear- by our advices that President Grant has emphatically declined to favor the Stoke eheiue of IJa jea! revo lution in Tennessee.

President's pilgrimages is that he may in- ' form himself of the state of the country and the drill of public opinion. Not rerr familiar with either before assuming office, ' it may well be that he is now, if not an apprentice, at haal 1 Joaiaf JfsSlO, acquir ing while he practice- th. art of civil gor ernment. These are his wanderinir years, and he is to come out of them a finished master in political wisdom. The people are very lotstant of saeh an explanation as this, which flatters our vanity w hile it promises 1:0 1 results furan in. jerienci d President. But they will noon begin to inquire why it is that he confines himself to so small a part of the great country he governs why h- honor- New York and New England wit h soaaaeh of his coin pany, and neglects a journey through the South.

The suprema cy of the party that elec ted Gen. Grant is hut paig away in the South, and it is growing weaker all oyer the North. Be fore the reaction culminates, and while yet there is time to temper or avert the shock of defeat, it behooves the head of the Ad ministration to give earnest thought to the problems of Southern politics.

The work of Tylerization, upon which the Preaidi nt entered immediately after being sworn into office, and which was undoubtedly comnieneed by him some months before, now stands open ami con fessed. The divisions in the Kepublican party in the South were under discussion in tlit Cabinet on Friday, and the Presi dent a " Secretaries rah, Cox, Rawlins and K m had determined to sustain the CoBau retire movement in the South ern States. So tar as the execution ol the les' onth in the Virginia Legislature is concerned, Attorney General tloar acted with the President and the Secretaries aboye named. Probably the regular Republican organ isation in the South knows what the Uon narrative movemenl is, and what its leaders intend Does not Stokes know who op posed him in the late election in Tennes see! Is Wells igoranl of the elements of which the opposition to him was composed in the Virginia election? These two prominent leaden in the Republican party sar that the men calling themselves Con- servatire Republicans in the South are Democrats and ex rebels, acting in unison With a few men who have hitherto been "loyal," and that the purpose of the Con servatives is to overthrow and ntterly an nihilate the regular Kepublican party in the States which were in rebellion. This view has also been taken, since the ! Tennessee election, by a majority of the newspapers of the ruling party. Before thai election they fa voted the Conserra , lire movement. Now they assail it, and i demand tint war shall be made on Dent ; in Mississippi and Hamilton in Texas, al ! though those gentlemen are working for i precisely the mine results that Walker and Center souffhl to accomplish in Virginia and Tennessee. Since the election In the States fast nanied, t c Republican press appears to have gained information about the Conservative movement w hich has led it to change tront. The President has not changed front. He was with the Conservatives, secretly, from the first lie is now w ith them open ly. He knew what tbeir plans were, and knew that with Iiis assistance they could triumph. If the prevailing opinion in the Republican party concerning the Con servatives be correct, their successes are, in fact. Democratic victories The Presi dent and majority of the Cabinet, in Con tempt of this opinion, pledge their support to the Conservatives and, consequently, to the movement w hich proposes to crush the Republican party in the South. In this the l're.-ident is sustained by General Bhei nam. What the opinion of tn latter is concerning reconstruction, and the class of men entitled to rule in the lately rebellious States, may be known firona a reading of the agreement with the r. be! o nend Jo. Johnson, at the time of Johnson's surrender. It is as notorious that Sherman has a good opinion of the ex-n Dels, and would treat them generous ly, as that his influence with the President i greater than that of any other man. These facts will, in part, account for the persistency and industry with which fjfraat has pursued his Tykrizing plans. Those plans, by the close of .November, will not only have taken the States of Virginia, Tennessee Mississippi, and Texas from the control of the Radicals, bat they are now working dissension in the ranks of the ruling party in Pennsyl vania, Ohio, Maine, Maryland, Delaware, and Massachusetts. The fact thai those dissensions exist, and are largely caused by the Presidential appointments, joined to the fact that (.Irant has, to ull intents and pnrposes, declared that he would Ty-leri-, by joining the Conservatives, amply justifies the suspicion that the appoint ments were made with a view tTj leria tion. What agencies the President has recently set at work in the Northern States to disrupt the rtilin n ir! v i ill donbtlesa, he dtscloaed a 1 1,1 j " 01, before the next t resKicmiai election. There j. good reason to belieye that the Tylerizing movement has been accelerated by a reaction of public sentiment against the parly in power, w hich lias suggested to lac President the policy of a renewal of ni-connection with the Democracy, in OfdV r to obtain a second term. 15' tiii- a-it may. the question now- fair ly come- up whether the political situation i- such as to Justify him in Tyleriimr. Of coarse, he does so al the expense oi con (listener, and in violation of pledges, ex presseo and implied, as sacred as any which can be given by a politician. It is .1.. I....... 11.. -i .. . t me una 01 a j resn 1 e n I 10 do what he thinks Im -t for the public interests, but it is also his duty, before he accepts the nomination of a politieal party, and pledges himself to stand by its policies and mat- mim, careniiry to examin its proposed course ot action, ami come to a l tiint conclusion thereon. There are such things as party obligations of a grave and bind ing character, and these, in Tyleri.ing, t he Pr sklent casts aside. We hope good may come of it, but it now looks as if " moral id-a-" will meet w ith sundry pullbacks, because of the nnfiuthfulnessof the Presi dent toward meat. Chioojm IfMmm, Srft. u. The Modest Slokes.

The time has gone by w hen intelligence like this would create any surprise, it is a perltet illustration of the impudence, audacity and revolutionary character of Radicalism. Doubtless General stokes caa cite man a Radical precedent in sup port of his demand.

How short it has been seven davs 1 seven chapters of light and happiness- -of toys and sorrows of hopes and fears -of trials and conquests of births and mar riagesof sickness and of health. Hut a little thing is a week but it is a life to some, in the results it doth bring. To-night we were made to feel sad, yet happy. On the way home we passed a woman in calico leading by the arm a weak, tottering, trembling old BUUL His step was hardly a step he could hardly lift his feet from the pavement his face was wrinkled with the lines of ninety-one winters, while his scattered hairs were silky and white as the purest snow. And the woman was at fifty. Her face was kind her eye told volumes. The crowd on the Bowery turned aside a? it hurried by to let the oU man toddle on. "Good evening, good woman can we help vou " " Oh, no, thank you." And she looked so kindly at us. W are almost home a few steps farther, and you are in a hurry going home too, perhaps." Almost home ! Yes that old man who little heeded the crowd and who looked with mazed and puzzled gaze on the busy scene was almost home! A few more Saturday nights and he will be there with Him, ami then he can walk, and run without stumbling or 1 . . ........ l.itn II. other sunoort than He And we passed on to think, and think, and we thought of woman's love, and the worth of it. How she cared for him we should think her father. Perhaps he was cross and petulant years ago, if not now, yet she was kind to him, and with care steadied his steps lest he fall and the busy crowd trample him under feet. And we thought of thousands and thousands of good women in different places who love, are good, and true, and pure, and kind who deserve happiness here and Heaven hereafter. All over the land we saw them as we walked home. The entire line of clouds seemed to be rolled back by some gn at hand as somebody said, " Look at them everywhere." And we did look into thousands of homes. ly the farmer's lire and in the woodman's cabin. Br the sick bed and kneeling with grief-laden hearts and tear Wct faces, beside corpses and collies. We saw them in calico and homespun by thou sands, and they all told of woman's worth, love and devot ion. Little do men know of woman's sor rows, heart aches, hungerings for love, temptations ami resistings. Hen go and i come. They are busy. Avenues of labor and amusement are open to them, for they have the power to open tosuil themselves. They plunge into business, engage in en terprises, hunt, lish, sport, idie. dissipate, go and come, mixing, talking, eager to be , interested. When tired they rest, but woman's work is never done, and she must labor on, a prisoner within close walls, like a caged bird seeing the world but not mixing therewith lesl she be lost, We know oi a home where a woman works cheerfully, lor those she loves wrks like us. She wears calico, and knows nothing of opera. Her hear! is in her home, her loved ones, she is happy, for they all live for her as sh,. does for them. And oh, the wonderons depth of her 1' ve. She is by 1 he 1 Yl . .11 ncosuie, me laoie, she is monarch of the ( hair, everywhere, home, queen of hearts, and willing tributes lo her subject- pay. Her band stills pain, her hps greet with such pure, earnest, loving hisses, Her words are ever so kind and eentlo. while her life is not lost in scllishin ss. gbc is not a vain beauty, cold as marble, in Iii' j ferent to others, caring only for herself, for positioa und the outward adornmcnl 1 of her person, tyrannizing over heart-, compelled by the ukase of society to pay Towi where none are due. But she is a : good woman, a loving woman, a loving, affectionate, gentle, caressing woman a man always loves, and i ' for, protect and defend. willing to cafe We love a good, warm-hearted woman. ; Not one of these simple beauties who are gay, painted, padded, befrixed and beftiz xled adornings of fashion without heart or S true worth. Such are very nice to look , upon good to llirt with nice b take to the opera, the race-, the theatre, or toskir lnish w ith w hen the coast is ch ar and willing ones seek for adventure, but they ; don't wear for keeps like the good, plain, : sensible women who have hearts ami ! whose worth is more than pen or tongue can tell. Women would be better and happicT If ; men loved them better and were more true to them. If nun would strive as i much to make home happy as they do to seek happiness elsewhere, the world would be better. Hours do come when men admit the ! power, the worth of woman. Not in Ban ; -hine so much as In shade and storm. When engrossed with business and rolling on the sea oi success, we too often folget the ones without whom life would be a blank, and only fly to the bavens and shel ters the lore and gentle caresses of wo man when the waves are high and to rc main abroad is to perish. Then comes the hour w hen all admit the power of the weak. It is the care of wo man which makes millions of homes beauti ful, and makes love's palaces of laborers cottages. It is the love We have for WO- 111:111 tin- love they have for us nie)., thai drires us ahead ti conquests nnd victories. The words kindly spoken, the smile of those we love, the commendation of those we respect of women, make men of all who arc not debased, and draw our hearts to them with irresistible power. And as we see them day after day patiently, earnestly toiling to help others a alk, as we see them leading t he w eak, aiding the unfortunate, and by the wondrous, power Of their (bid given love, and the magic of their bo. d -. caresses, and prayers, we wonder that all men do not pay more tribute to the worth of woman's lore.

Conse qiiently, birds with very long wings have this advantage, that with pre-acquircd momentum, they can sustain themselves a very long lime without flapping their wings it all. Under these circumstances a bird is sustained." very much as a boy's kite is sustained in the air.

Cookeo meal is nearly double the bulk of uncooked, yet quart for quart it is said to go as far. The difference is, that much of the food is undigested unless cooked. It is said that the juice of one lemon a day, taken in water, will cure the most ob stinate case of neuralgia. No sugar should be taken, as it has a tendency to counteract the effects ot the lemon juice. Two quarts of hot water, one pound of Indian meal anda quarter of a pound of unbolted wheat flour, will make more eggs when fed warm to hens than twice the amount of whole grain, bo says an ex change. The black knots on plum and cherry trees have been decided on good authority to he neither the production nor the sne cial nest of any species of insect, but a , little parasitic plant ol the class Fungi I The only cure is to lop off and burn the ' affected branches, as if left until late in the season they throw on lnnuniucraoie sim, which lodge on healthy branches and there vegetate. When hogs are kept in pens and cannot hunt trreen food, they should have clover and other succulent grasses given them oc casionally. Sods, charcoal, stonecoal or clay should be given to them frequently. These tend to correct and prevent diseases ami are very much relished by them. A little attention to this subject will prevent inuch disease among hogs. If you plow down your weeds before they go to seed they will prove a heneht to y our land instead of a curse. If they are allowed to go to seed they will be source of endless trouble. Plowed under they are worth as much as a dressing o manure. Beside, enriching the soil they tend to keep it loose. It you add from twenty-five to ntty nusnem oi nine per ucreito the ground, and harrow it in, it will convert your weeds into plant food. A lady sends to the Farmers' Club the following pickle prescription, which she has used several years with success, am she has repeatedly heard the piekles calht superior: I'ick over uie vines every other day, select the perfect fruit, wash clean, ami cover with u strong brine lor twenty-four hours. Then take them from the brine, rinse with clear water, am drain them dry. When dry, pack them close in stone jars, and cover with good vinegar. Red peppers may be added if we like. Good old vinegar will keep pickles prepared in this way for a year without its being; changed. Watered, flsshy vinegar win scum over ami uceu to ne changed." WHBAT vs. CHEAT. "Wheat never turns to cheat, nor does cheat ever turn to wheat. If cheat is not sown with the wln at, and there is none In the ground, there will be none found In the growing crop. Cheat is often found growing so closely among the roots of wheat as to have the appearance of having come from the same seed. But that is not the case. Wheat never will become cheat, however badly it may be damaged or degenerated. The two are (piite different plants. Farm Journal. PÄCKnra Bi ttf.r. It is of the fir-t im portance, in packing butter, either for market or home consumption, that the vessel in which it is placed should not only be clean, hut made uf a material from which the bulter will not derive any un pleasant flavor. In speaking on this sub ject, the Toronto Qkb$ warns fonnera against tin nseof pine firkins and tuba, antl continues : " The idea of using pine originated wit li country storekeepers who generally furnish tbe package to the farmers' wives to till, and desire to go to as little expense as possible rather than to give the buttermaker a good name in the market. Use stone jars or crocks for packing butter for home use, or to be sold to DeighborsGf to city consumers. Wben wooden ; ackages are used, have them Bta de only of the best seasoned whiteoak, maple, or any hind of itohI, lmr.i wood. Pine, or any kind of resinous wood, however well it may be seasoned, scalded, or whatever else is done to it, will still give a bad flavor to butter when used as a package; the salt in the butter seems to draw out the resinous flavor from the wotxl at some time or other after the butter is put in. Ve Should imagine that so cheap and strong an article us glass could be made much use of for the purpose of making batter packages." Items of Agricultural Experience. 1. AlX soils are benefited by being itn- oerdramed, but the neneiu is more ap parent and lasting in those of a clayey na ture, Off having a subsoil retentive of moisture. 2. After drainage, suhsoiling and good Cultivation are necessary to ensure good crops on heavy soils. .. Lime is the best manure to supply strong clay soils. It renders tltein more pervious to light and heat, ami also cor rects their acidity, by combining with some of the chemical salts in the soil, making plant food of poison. 4. Summer fallow ing tithe most efficient and profitable means of preparing strong soils for wheat, and of beginning a rota tion, after grass has been grow n for a length of time. .. Green crops plowed under, when in the most succulent state, are powerful aux iliaries in rendering a light soil fertile, but if this is done too often successively, the soil becomes overcharged with carbona ceous matter. 6. Leached ashes applied in large quan tities to sandy soils, or those containing too much vegetable humus, will greatly ameliorate their condition, and render them more compact. 7. There is no soil so poor or sterile but some mode may be found of ameliorating and enriching it. 8. Blowing sands may be gradually made productive by spreading six inches thick of straw over them, to remain till rotted. Then seed thickly with clover on the surface, w ithout plowing, ami when the clover has taken hold ami becomes es tabtished, pasture sheep upon the land for I two or three years preparatory to manur ing and cultivating il. !.

Evkuv skillful apiarian knows that If he depends upon the increase of the colo nics alone as the only means of making his apiary profitable, and render the bast ness of Rcepina bees worthy nf his atten tion, he will fail to realize success. Hence it is that hives have been invented, and brought to a high standard of excellence, for the purpose of obtaining surplus honey, and at the same time not to inter fere with the operation of the bees in rearing broods, and increasing their num bers Supposing the hives to be of the most improved patterns, and honey boxes placed npoathssaat the proper tana, I propose to give a few directions as to the best way i nit l oi removing mem wnen iuieu. n is never giMKl policy to destroy a single bee w hen it can be avoided, and especially in the honey harvest, w hen every bee is required to git her the produce of the flowers. Careless apiarians arc very apt to destroy bees unnecessarily while obtaining sur plus honev. When hives arc so constructtsi as to allow of the use, a piece of sheWlroii or tin to slide under the Imx tobe taken oil, so as to prevent the Im-cs from below from (lying alt when the bOS was removed, is vi rv handy. Sniok of sonic kind, (either tolwuco, rags or wood, will an wer the purpose) ami should always be used to quiet the bees, and prevent them from slinging the operator. A litlle blown under the box as it is lifted from the hive will cause the hees lo be very peaceable and harmless. As soon as a has is removed, U empty one should be put Ota, for il it be delayed, the bee keeper will often löte the best of the harvest, for a few .'iivs in the height ot the hom y sea son ire often of more value than wcekfl sfterwardi would be. The best method I ha ve ever 1 l it tl (of driving the bees from the boles, is U) lake them off just betöre night and place them upon the table alter supper. They should e inverted, as several 01 ineni can ue dared side by side, and a box of some kind turned over them, which is just large nough to cover the ent ranee ol the caps. In the morning the bees will be found clustered together, when they can beset out ol uoors and allowed to seek their own hives. Or if it is preferred, ehch set of boxes may be numbered, and kept separ ate trom otiu rs, aiel the bees emutied in front ot the hive from which they were taken. The chief advantage this nlan possesses over others is that it prevents the Jarring of the boxes, which in warm weather, when the comb is tender, often does serious injury to the honev. both in appearance and value. Cor. Itu ml Ameri ca n. Washing Sweated Horses. A CORRESPONDENT of the London Field anawera an inquiry whether it is a safe practice to wash sweated horses in cold water. lie says he has adopted it, ami with beneficial results, both in summer and winter. After washing, the animal should be rubbed dry, as far as practicable, and the legs especially. Should the hair on them be too long to admit of this beinfc sufficiently done, flannel bandages should be put on, and a woolen rug thrown loose ly over, but without the roller. In the course of an hour the horse will be tolera bly dry, and should have another rub down, and be clothed In the ordinarv man ner. If horses were treated in a more ra tional manner than is often the case, with pure air and scrupulous cleanliness disease would be far less common. What is more refreshing to a man after a hard day's shooting, or rather luxurious exercise, than a warm or cold bath? And I believe it to be equally so to the horse, To the tired hunter, a warm foot bath and fomentation, if the animal is sufficiently quiet, is most refreshing. "With gentle treatment, most horses can be used to al most anything. Some years ago, I visited the royal stables at Buckingham Palace. There, as I was informed ami at the time myself witnessed the operation every horse, summer and winter, was washed from head to foot with cold water, after re turning from work, no matter whether it had been out one hour or six. A regular bath house, cold water and plenty of it, two men after the ablution, scraping, scrub bing, etc.; a kind ol web cloth was thrown over to admit the evaporation, and the horse was afterward rubbed down ai d clothed as usual in the course of an hour or two. We cannot all have such appli ances, but still 1 consider the plan rational and conducive to the health of the horse, il only ordinary care is taken. Fanal for Faiteabif sheep. The questioii is frecftreritly asked: "Whit kind of grain is best for fattening beep? 1 answer, for roe, corn is the het for tbe main (ecd, aHbongb I like a few "ats mixed to start with, and have no objections In beans, peas and oil-meal, if they don't eo.st foo mach. Whenever they cost as much or more than corn, 1 dis pense with them, as a Bhecp feeder must count his cosi as well aa his reputation if he intends to sm eoed. Another question arises: "Do you find whole or gonnd feed lu-si v" For hoist s, cattle and pigs, T prefer ground feed, but for sheep, especially fattening sheep, I choose whole or unground feed, find that the sheep will grind it jut as well as the mill to which we must give every tenth bushel, besides having the trouWcof hauling the grain to anil from it. 1 also find that Gal slurp will hold up u their full feed much better, especially in soft weather, on whole than on ground feed; Consequently drawing grain to and from thu mill, ami uavinir toll. is. in mv estima tion, labor and lift ncy lost. It is aakedy u What kind of lmy is liest for sheep? Emphaticalbr J t-ny clover, but it should be cut t ally, and cured nice and green. Timothy is probably best for hoist s, but for cattle and sheep I prefer clover, and would rather have u ton of nice green tine clover than a ton of timo thy, although in market one ton of timo thy will bring as much as two of clover. I have sometimes fed some timothy hay to my sheep, bUt always found tha't it was not the kind for them; they would grow b and thin upon it not a very- good sign that a fattening animal is thriving welL As soon as they got the clover again they would plump up ami look fulr and nice, and I can assure yon unless jr our sheep look tun and plump, inej are not fattening very fast. Is straw good for feeding sheep? One feed at noon of nice blight oat, barley or pea straw, 1 prefer to hay, as they not only relish it, hut it is a change for them. Sheep are very fond of a variety, and will cat daisies, weeds, thistles or almost anything of the kind that is cut and cured green. Nice green corn-stalks are not very bad for sheep, and when 1 have plenty of tin m I always feed the sheep with them at least once a day, and consider them as good as hay. I prefer, however, feeding them the fore part of the winter, as towards spring they, will sometimes contract dampness, and then the sheep do not cat them as well. With regard to the value of roots for feeding, my experience is that whenever they are worth more than seventy-live Cents per bail el, and corn not over from one dollar to one dollar and twenty-five cents per bushel, the corn is the cheapest, and I Would use only- a few roots as a stib- stitute for green food. 1 consider carrot and ruts bagas better than common turnips; still by feeding a little more of the hitter than "the former, I think Ute sheep do just as well on them. JV. Y. Agri cultural Report. Dolt-Breaking. It is by no means an uncommon prac tice with persons in the eountry, who wish to break a horse to harness, "to put him into a strong cart, and then he can't do any harm ; perhaps he may not, hut the chance is, that, by this mode of commenc ing his harness education, he will do no good. This may be breaking; it is not teaching. The horse is not accustomed iy nature to propel anything with his shoul ders ; tin act is therefore unusual to him; his natural act would be to recoil from it if he could. Of course, therefore, the heavier the weight he feels against aim is, the more disposed he is to recoil from it. A good and well-trained carl hone will pull twenty limes running at an immova ble object, for this reason : he has been ac customed to lind t hat by increased exer tion he aas generally succeeded in moving an object to which tie has been attached; he therefore always expects to be able to do this, consequently will try to do so ; bat the nonioc in harness, if he feels a grcal weight behind, will most probably do everything but what he ought to do, which is, to resolutely Bel his shoulders to the collar. The fact is, in this as in all cases with borst s, tin y should never, If possible, be put to do that which it is likely they will refuse to do. It is quite natural a horse should at lirst refuse to 1'acc a collar with 500 lbs. pressing against him none would refuse lodoso with 5 lbs. The öoO lbs., therefore, should never be tried till We know be will draw the 5 lbs., and then Increase the draft by degrees. 'Neglecting lo do this is one of the great causes that produces jibbing, which is the almost cer tain result of injudicious treatment, Prai rie Farm- r. Btray Qraias for Chiekens.
