Tho following sensible reply which appeared in the Free Frew to a challen ge received by Mr. Shedd from parties in Milton explains itself: BuitiiiNcjTo.v, May 17th,lS(it. Mcm'S. Charles Osrood and others: Gr.NTLLMKN, 1 have received your communication of the 0th inst., adilic.--sed to me and published in the Free J'rcss on tho lUth inst. I am unable to determine whether your commu nication was- intended lo extol the mer its of Short Horns, orwhetnor you wore desirous to use our Short Horns to form a third term in order to asceitain, by proportion, how many Ayrshire cows it would require to make one good Short Horn cow. When I talk about a cow, I mean a cow, not an inlinitessim al part of a cow, to be determined by '"proportion." 1 might with propriety meet your "proportion," as you have met my cballango, by proposing to match tour goasts against vour Ayrshi re, and tho relative merits of tne two breetls of animals bo determined by the amount of milk each should produce In 'proportion ' to t lie weiglr, oi annua. s. I have cows weightihg 1,500 nounds unwarda. According to the terms of your proposition, 1 should have to fur nish lour cows that would give as much milk as eight or ton of your cows, unlo.-s they have increased in their "propor tions" since J saw them. In my opinion, milk is not the only quality to bo taken into account in ureceing, or in selecting the Uest hrccii of cattle, oven for Vermont Farmers. hen we consider thai nail ot all the calves are male- and not available for ttto dairy, that the females (at least ShorlHorns,) do not allpassotl'in in. Ik, but mustsooiur or later lie turned oil for beef, and that some farmers must raise oxen and steers, it would seem that the size and woight of iho animal had something todo with its value, and that this vuii.0 might properly lie de termined by "proportion." If these tilings are int to bo taken Into account and goats will produce more milk in proportion to their weight than Ayr shire cows, tho goat would be eonsidoi ud the more valuable animal. Short Horn brooders are not so foolish as to claim that Ayrshiresare not good milk ers. Some Ayrsnire biveders claim tnat Short Horns won't givo a.iy milk anil some that nothing will or can com pete with Ayershircs. My object in finding the challenge was, to disabuse you, in your early career in Ayrshire breeding, of ih. ido'.i that nothing can compete with Ayrshire in milking qualities. If weight must bo taken into account in order that Ayrsnircs can compete successlullywitli Short Horns in quality of milk, or even if Short Horns, combining as they most certainly do great size and beauty u itli early maturity and quick fattening oualities, will givo as much milk as an Ayrshire it would seem very easy to de termine which were the mo. t desir able. Now, gentlemen, 1 extend you the riinu ntinii oi ienowsnii), ami tint vou God speed in your ellbr s to improve the breed ot cattle in Vermont. I have nothing to say against Ayrshire cows, and Sln.rt Horns will speaU for them selves. Yours respectfully, Jamls A. Sm:ni. Tin: way to get along in the world is to make every stop one that is ahead, and each to follow its predecessor. Full 50 per cent, of the efforts of the world is absolutely wasted in indirect, diffuse, indefinite labors. Young men start on in life without purpose or point, casting a thought neither on their fitness nor untlitncss for u particular calling ; now doing this thing, then that, and after that nothing; one day going on, anoth cr c:i the right which Is wrong or left, tho next backward, and then not going at allj which is perhaps as bad as tho whole combined. The right lino in life is tho ono which loads straight ahead. This almost always secured success There is an ex-scavenger in Jlo-iton who drives Ills span on the Brighton road afternoons, gathers his dividends on State Street lorenoons, and lives in a swell-front palaco at South End. Ho did not disdain an unsavory calling pushed and made it pay, and remained on tho pine seat until ho could afford to lift h.niself over to halraud plush. Stei early, stop often, but above all, step straight ahead. j Definition of llildv Tvi'ins.

He is accompanied by his wife and three daughters, and his Secretary of Legation. A Washington telegram says, Mr. Motley's llnal instructions from Wash ington, by special messenger, aro to proceed in the Alabama claims question with a Ii rm but temperato policy, recently corrected list of incomes in the Eighth Congressional District of this city shows it to be the wealthiest Dis trict in the Union. A. T. Stewart's incomo is over three millions a year. The Intnan steamer from Liverpool onthotith, arrived at this port yester day. Her European files aro two dnvs later. Avlces received in Loudon from the Cape announco the finding of another diamond, much larger than any yet met with in the colony, valued atJCa",- 000. The diamond was found near the Orange Kiver, in the diamond territory, um was bought of a native for 500 sheep and a few cattle, by a Dutchman, wno again sold it for 11 "00. This news is confirmed by the civil commis sioner to our colonial secretary, and has caused great excitement here, as .there can be no doubt of tho immense wcnlth of this diamond country. Koine has been crowded with neonlu in attendance at tho jubilee festivals. and with two exceptions every house was illuminated when the Pope celebrat ed the fiftieth anniversary ofhis ordina tion. The gifts count up in value to mi.lions of d Jlars. There were boxes of of gold heavier than a man could lift. Every crowned head in Europe sent congratulation". New Yoiik, 18th. A Washington correspondent states. that the commission of den. Sickles as Minister to Spain, was signed by Presi dent Clrant yesterday, and an order is sued susnendini: Minister Tfuli. lTi resignation was tendered, to take cfl'ect on July 1st, and his friends at the eapi- tol, who have been working to have him retained until that time, tire much chagrined at his suspension for they look upon it as giving color to the al leged corrupt practices charged against Hale. Letters from the West Indies .state that the southern portion of (he island of I'orlo Rico was the scene of a fearful conflagration on the 18th ult. The buildings of a whole street In the city of Ponce being burned to the ground. The firo was the work of incendiaries. There was no water to check the flames, and house after house was swept to the ground. Circulars had been distributed among tho ntuives, informing them that all houses marked with blocdy hands were doomed, ai,d advising those that lived near to remove their ellects. All the houses of Spaniards were thus marked. Despatches received five weeks since intimating that a crash was pending, have boon more than verified. The gold operations have been fairly pushed into a corner of their own making. Large amounts of bonds sent to Europe have been returned. Many financiers attribute the difficulty to the fact that Secretary limit well has endeavored to do too much ; others attribute it to the Sumner speech on the Alabama claims. A largo proportion of foreign funds is controlled by foreign rosidents hercymd the belief that a European war in some shape is approaching gains strength every day. Since 1807, there has not been so much doubt as to the financial future as to-day. The receipts from the sale of tickets lor the Peace Jubilee- yesterday amounted to upwards of $40,000. Hoston, 18th.
