Qhfttujt department [From the Constitution of the National Grange.] The ultimate object op this organiza tion is por mutual instruction and pro tection. Human happiness is the acme of earthly unbition. Individual happiness depends upon GENERAL PROSPERITY. From the address of the Master of the National Grange, Master Adams of lowa, de livered at the last National Grange meeting at St. Lonis, January, 1874: “Article xii. also demands most serious consideration to definitely decide what in terprotation ?hall be put upon the word “political.” I ain gratified that our members are auletantiallv a unit in the opinion that the Order should not in any sense become a |>olitical party. But at the same time, there are questions most fundamentally affecting our material interests which can only be reached throtigh legislation —lt seems im perative tliat such questions should bk dis cussed in the Grange. Shall it lie said that such questions were political in the meaning of the Constitution* The questions ot TRANSPORTATION, TAXATION, PINANCE, COR bcption in pculi: places, were such as COWS* home to the conscience* and pockets iff our members, and they wish to know whether they will be denied the privilege of can vassing them on the ground of politics ” To this suggestion the National Grange replied as follows in their NATIONAL PLATPORM. “We emphatically and sincerely assert the oil repeated truth taught in our organic law, that tne Grange, National, State or Subor dinate, is not a political or a party organiza tion. No Grange, is true to its 'obligations, can discuss political or religions questions, nor call political conventions, nor nominate candidates, r.or even discuss their merits in it-* meetings. Yet the principles we teach cedbeur all TRPB POLITICS, ALL TRUE STATESMANSHIP. and if properlv carried out will tend to purify the whole political atmosphere of our country. For we seek the greatest good to the greatest number. We must always bear in mind that no one, by becoming a Patron of Husbandry, gives up that inalienable ri*ht and duty which lie longs to every American citizen’, to to *re a proper interest in the politics iff his country'' “We propose meeting together, talking together, and generally ACTING TOGETH ER, tor our mutual protection and advance ment” “We axe opposed to any such spirit and management of any corporation or enter- Srise as tend to oppress the people and rot lem of their just profit*.” “We are opposed to excessive salaries and high rates ot interest” The Grangers in the vicinity ol 1 Hutchinson propone to build a ware house at that point for their um. GRANGER TELEGRAPH LINES. “The Grangers do not mean to let the monopolists conduct all kinds of business without opposition. They promise to put up a new telegraph line from St. Paul to Chicago at once. We wish them all success in every branch of business wherein they t choose to risk their money.” We clip the foregoing from the Prairie du : Chien Courier. The Age trusts there is no j truth in the report. First, Grangers gener- i illy have no money to invest in telegraph ■ stocks. Second, tney do not understand telegraphing, and it lias got to be about as rauen of a necessity, a monopoly and a faud as railroads, and there is about as much prospect of getting money hack that s ginvested - in telegraph as in railroad stocks. All they put in they can count as so much wasted.— Chicago Industrial Age. Amen, to that. It is all nonsense to set Grangers to building telegraph lines. Hiey might as well organize a Granger ixpress company, or build Granger ob- j •ervatories for astronomical purposes, j rhe average Granger uses the telegraph ! ines not more than once a year, at a I :ost of fifty cents. If our farmers are ! •oped into such schemes by calling them ‘Granger’’ enterprises, they will not be ong in realizing the force of the old ad ige, “A fool and his money are soon >arted.” Go slow on anything that takes mon. ij out of your own pocket and trusts t to the honesty of other men, even ihough they have the pass word and ?rip. „ TREE. The Chicago Industrial Age says: If they (the farmers) want to destroy the monopolies that are grinding them to the ?arth, they must contribute their share to supporting the presses and the friends who ‘ ire devoting their time and money to the ! idvancement ot their interests This Is true. If you are without or- i ;ans or advocates, you are a mere in- j sensate rabble, blindly striking at each j Jther, and corralled and controlled by the few able knaves in the pay of the :orporations ; very much as a band of hunters will drive a herd of buffaloes jver a precipice and slaughter them for the sake of their hides and tallow. You must think, enquire and organ ize. If you do not you cannot protect yourselves. A Clean Sweep Proposed in Ike State Grange. Dei.avan, Minn., Nov. 18,1874. Editor of the Anti-Monopolist: The Faribault Couniy Council, at its last session, passed the following reao lutions and directed me to publish fhem in your columns: '+■ Reunited, That the delegates to the State Giange from this county be requested to labor tor such a modification of the State Constitution as will make it competent to elect the whole of the State Executive Com mittee. instead of one-half of it, each year. Resolved, That they be also requested, in case such amendment prevails, to labor for a new Board throughout; and if it does uot, then to labor for new men to fill such va cancies as m&v exist. Resolved, That thev also be most urgently requested to labor difiigently for a new State Master and a new State Agent. Respectfully and fraternally yours, 11. E. Mathew, Sec’y. TUSCUMBIA, ALABAMA, IN RUINS Nashviuj:, Tenn., Nov. 23.—The following particulars of the disastrous storm at Tuscumbia, Alahama, arc just received. A terrible storm occurred here last evening at six o’clock, destroying one third of the residences. Twelve per sons were killed and many others in jured. The killed are Mrs. Winston, mother of the late ex-Gov. Winston ; the wife and two children of Hon. J. B. Moore. Senator from this district; F. D. Hodgkins, editor of the Chronicle. and his wife and four children. j, The Catholic church, iho Dishler Fe male Institute, recently finished, many j of the finest residences, bath of the | flouring mills, and the most substan- : tial brick buildings ia town were d«- j stroyed. Many poor families an with- i out homes. A bridge on the Memphis t Charles ton' railway, near town, was destroyed and the eastern bound train was pre cipitated intoSpnag creek. Fortunately no one was killed, though the engineer is badly burned. Several days must pass before trains will run through. The Mayor appeals to Huntsville. Louisville and Memphis and th» adjoin ining towns in the following terms: “Nearly half our town is in ruins. Twelve persons are killed and many wounded. A large number of families are entirely destitute. The tornado came from the southwest, passing northwest. Unless immedi ate aid can be extended to us much suffering will be the result. We appeal to the charity of a Christian public in behalf of the unfortunates. (Signed,) H. T. Newscu, Mayor of Tuscumbia, Alabama.” —The direct cable fleet are storm bound in a Newfoundland harbor. MULLET! Something; About that Resignation. [Washington Special, (Nov. 23) Chicago i Times.] The resignation of Supervising Archi- i tect Mullett, noticed in last night’s dis- j patches, was to-day accepted by Secre- ; tary Bristow, to take effect as soon as ! Mullett’s successor can be named. The change has caused a positive sensation in Washington, for Mullett’s unlimited expenditure of millions, the vast i patronage which he controlled in let-) ting contracts and selecting builders, clerks, workmen, etc., in-the erection of j the new public buildings, gave him a ' power that has been felt for many ! years. Every effort was made to-day | to induce the President to interfere to ; save him; for although Mullett apolo- j gized to Bristow for his- language to i him on Saturday, the latter insisted on 1 accepting his resignation- Boss Shep- i herd and Mullett visited, the President ; during the day, as did ; Treasurer Spinner and. others, but it appears without result. It is de- • clared that the President did not want | to interfere with the reforms which 1 Secretary Bristow had. made in the j treasury department, and especially j with any disagreement as to the man- I agement of affairs in the bureau of the j supervising r-chitect. Had the Presi-I dent interfere d, it is well understood | thit he would have received Bristow's resignation without a moment’s delay, j So altogether there was at one time to- . day promise of a very, considerable i storm. Secretary Bristow denies the sensational story that violent language passed between Mullett and himself. ! New York, Nov. 23.—A dispatch > from Washington announcing that Mul- j lett, the administration architectural fraud, has resigned, •and that his resig i nation has been accepted, has given general satisfaction here. Mullett has j long been regarded among architects as j a charlatan o£ the worst stripe. The ' last of his quack architectural fixtures ; was that of placing on the top of the ' front of the new postoffice building a large gilded arraugement which was ' out of all keeping of this really fine j structure, in the design of which Mul- ! let had no hand. A special dispatch to the New York ; Times to-night, on the subject, says the real difficulty, between the Secre tary and Mr. Mullett is much more re- , mote than any controversy about the treasury furniture. The architect’s ! office has had rather aa abnormal con- I nection with the treasury department, j and Mr. Mullett has- exercised, during’ , several years, almost absolute author- j itv in his bureau. Secretary Bristow 1 differs from Mr. Mullett in the ' policy of constructing costly pub- i lie buildings. While he does not ob- ! ject to large expenditures’ and fine i buildings in some of the most important ‘ cities, like New York, he doubts the ex pediency of building elaborate and I costly structures all over the country, 1 but thinks thinks that plainer and more | substantial buiidings would be more in accordance with the wants of the gov- 1 eminent, and that for the same expend- ; iture a greater number of buildings , should be erected. It has been for ; J some time manifestly imposs.Sle that the treasury department could contain , both the secretary and the architect, j since the secretary, while not arrogat-, ing to himseif unusual powers is de- ■ termined to exercise according to his. own judgment those which arc necessa ry for the discharge of his official re-. sponsibility. Mr. Mullett. in referring J to his resignation, said that the secre- - tary had accepted it on account of his bad temper. Track of ibcStwai R kick EmrojreA Half «i TuwoMbia, Ala, Selma, Ala, Nov. 23.—A terriblfe storm visited Montevallo, 56 miles north of Selma last night Twelve or fifteen bouses were destroyed, two persons j were killed and 15 or 20 injured, scute j seriously. Cincinnati, Nov. 23.—A storm of | wind last night about li# o’clock uo i roofed several houses in Covingtoa and 1 Newport Ky., inflicting about fISiOOO damage, but causing nc.personal injury or loss of life. Crossing the Ohio .river i it passed up the Little Miami Talley with abated strength. Evansville, Ind., Nov. was a terrible wind and rain storm las t night.

[New York Telegram, Nor. 20.] The slander suit of Henry C. Bowen i \ against Demas Barnes, one of the nu- ' s merous actions growing out of the I ’ Brooklyn scandal, was begun to-day in | the Kings county court of sessions. The i * case was submitted to the jury without | argument on either side. The Judge | charged that proof of malice was neces- , sary to convict, and the jury, after a , brief consultation brought in a verdict 1 of acquittal. The jurors, at the same j 1 time, handed ia a written statement to : the court, to the effect, that while the | i defendant was legally exempt from con- | viction, yet they believed the printed : matter in the- Argus relating to the * deceased Mrs>. Bowen, was atrocious I and cruel. The formal order of the general terra, j < affecting the order of Chief Judge 11 Neilson, at the special term, denying >, the application of defendant for a bill of particulars in the suit of Theodore I Tilton vs. Henry Ward Beechee, was-! signed by Judge Reynolds this morn- ! 1 ing. It affirms Judge Neilson’s- order, and every part thereof. Beeeher’s j counsel have decided to appeal froto the order of the general term tic the- Court of Appeals. From tbe Criminal Court (o- cat- I While House. 1 [From the New Y'ork Tribune: 1 j c It is not our business to criticise the ! President’s taste in tbe selection of hi.* associates. If it pleases him to- ionite 9 Mr. Shepherd to the White House ©a occasions of special festivity, that ton a 1 affair of ours. It concerns only Gen. J Grant himself and the gpests into * whose compaay the ex-chief ot’ tbe- Dus- j trie# ring is thus unceremauaouslfj in- ] truded. And if the President cherishes a particular friendship for the persons J who have got themselves, into difficul- j ties by them irregular and excessive , zeal in protecting tbe D'istJrict ring from exposures,, we certainly laave no dispo- j sition to find, fault wit h him so long as he indulges bis sentiment with some measure of decorum. But there is a point of indecency to which Gen. Grant ought not te ventur a without provok ing remonstrance, a ad he reached that point whan be took a prisoner out of the dock of the Cr raiinal Court, where he was on. trial for a felony, and luvited him to % cereraan; .ous reception at the White Hooae. General Grant never allows public duty to-interfere with personal friend , ship. But mti .is instance there were I vhy he ought to have ' been cautious f« jr his ovn sake. He | and his intima te associates have been j charged over a nd over again with a de i sire t-o suppew inquiry into the prac : Dees of th* La te District Government. ! Politicians La gh in his confidence are | known to ha ve obstructed the prose cution. ia. making up its case for the SI afe Burglary trial, and | some of the present officers of the di»cr ict have taken a shameless . p3-r<- iw gstl .mg witnesses out of the way as-woll *» in the recent contempt of * enwrt. W e may as well talk plain ' English', * there is a widespread belief that tbw President has had pecuniary relation!* with the ring which is now on trial aa the person of a subordinate j agent:—* , 0 t necessarily corrupt rela- J turns* bi it secret, and, therefore, sus piciooa ones. An Executive with any regaz<i for his honor would have taken parlio* Jar pains, under such circum : s. not to stand between the pris otut-t znd the law. Bat General Grant, it am ms, is not that kind of a man. FOMETS PRESS.

C., Not. 25.—The House committee on appropriations will redace the appropriation for Indian service 5250,000 from that of last /ear. This redaction is justiftnd by the expi ration of several Indian treaties. Some cf the committee think that appropriations for army should also be reduced.
