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

Tlie Political Situation.

has at length transacted to the War De

the question of requiring the Reconstrac

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-

that that nstrument prescribes the only

President Grant has emphatically declined
to favor the Stoke eheiue of IJa jea! revo

The commonly assigned reason for the.
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

there is time to temper or avert the shock

Tylcrizalion Proclaimed.
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

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

When hogs are kept in pens and cannot
hunt trreen food, they should have clover

little attention to this subject will prevent

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.

Removing Iloucy.ltocs from Hives.
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

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
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

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

would refuse lodoso with 5 lbs. The öoO
