In tia'.e, of course, this ease of the market and accumulation of money heco will load to specula ion again ; but 'or many years, in our opinion, the Grangers will havo brought d certain calm lo tne fevered speculations of oir East ern capitalists. The East wilf now show a more tegular and measured growth. Thin is the wav Brolhee Garret son, replies in the Patrons Helper, to iho communication of the secretary ol Moreauville Grange, Lu, one of whose mein'iers wi.-hed to exchange sugar lor floor and pork.

There Was a Spider iu His Ilead. Old Jile. CollamoiH is very d'-nf. Tiie other Sunday, in the midst of the services, Mr. Iloff, who sits imme diately 1 ehind Mi. Collatnore, saw a spider traveling over tho hitter's bald head. His first impulso was to nudge him and tell him all about, but he re membered Mr Collainoro was deal, bo lie lifted up his hand and brushed the spider off Iloff di.i nt aim quite high enough and consequently, in ids nervoui-ness, he hit old CoUamore quite a severe blow. The old gentle man turned round in c rage to Fee who dared take fucli a liberty with him, and Ilcff hrgnn to explain, with grsture?, the cause of the occurrence. Cut CoUamore, in a loud voice, de manded what it meant. It was very p-.iinlul to Iloff. The eyes of the con gregation were upon him, and hegrew red in the lace. "There was a spider on your head." "A white place on my head, hey? S posen there isi what's that to you?" said CoUamore, "you'll km w what it is to be bald headed yourself some day." "It was aspidir," shriik.'d Iloff, whilo the congregation smiled and the perspira tion b"au to roll offhisfnee. 'Cer tainly ii's wider." , said Collntnore. "and got more in it than vonrs..' But li t it alone do you mind ? Yon may let my head uloue in church." "Mr. CoUamore," sl riiked IlnU', "there was a bug on your heal. an 1 I blushed him off ihia way," uud Iloff made another jesture at Mr. ColiaN nic re's head. The o'd man thought he was going to light him then and there, auc burling a hymn-book at Iloff, he seized ihe kneeling stool ou the floor ol the piw, and was aliout to bang Mr. Iloff. when the siXion iu teifcrcd. An explanation was writ ten on the fly-lewl of the h inn book, whereupon Mr. Collanmre apologized in a boisterous voice, and thei ic- sutned bis rea!. Then the seviccs proceed' d.

The mrchair ie wlio invents new nnd iiiqirnvcl Uliiir having machinery, is the natur al u!ly ol him, who by their aid, can produce heavier and better crops at a r ilii'ied cost." Ia proportion to the increasing density of popu'ution, the stern logic of facts is forcing the farmer ami mechanic to tho unavoid able conclusion that their prospeii. ly, individually and juiudy, depends upon being brought int i tho closest proximity. It is this conviction found d on tho rip -r" experience of the p"ople of the older states that is inciting iu the minds of the people of the ino-e spaisdy settled distiicts of the west, a desire to co-opcrato in s'multaneonsly developing tho agri cultural and mechanical interests, inasmuch as no pureiy agricultural community ever did or ever will at tain auy perccjitiblo degreo of pn s perity. It is confidently believed that tho establishment of tho order of Patrons of Husbandry will do much to hasten the union of labor nrd thought, inas much us this order has the following distinct objects in view, viz: Social, intellectual nnd business advantages. The formati'in of Mich an industrial organization by the farmers, and sim ilar ones, liko the Soverigus of Indus try, by the producing classi a in the city having tho same oljects in view, will do much to lessen any prejudice that may have heretofore existed between the few thinkers nnd many wmkers, and which has so seriously modified the innuiy independence that should always bo the leading characteristic nf each- Wh'-n tho workers become thinkers and thinkers workers, we can confidently look for progress and enlightenment, -and the many wid be less dependent upmi tho lew lor their thoughts, and the lew less depcndi-nt upon the many lor the built ol phys ical toil. ' It should be known to PatiotiS, that one uf the plank in the plutfo 'in ol the Older ol Patrons of flusiiinrl ry is, to buy only for ca-h.

Farmer mo our main dependence iu times of great emergencies. In the Revolutionary war, they constitu ted, for Ihe must part, the army that gained our national independence. At the same time they cultivated tho soil to provision that army. Thus they literally held the sword with one hand, and the plow with tho oth er. Washington, their commandersin chief, was a farmer, and forever put a dignity upon that calling, of which every American citizen may well feel proud. For his military prow ess and great admii.istrative ability, he was twice mado piesident, but af ter all, chose to end his illustrious career in the private walks and occu pations of a farmer. The same is true ol Jefferson uud most of the ear lier piesictents, as well as many of the most celebrated men of the republic. In tho late war also, as in the first, our farmers, irrespective of creed or party, with their sons and tfives and daughters, proved tho main stay of the nation. If it had not been for those men, who so nobly filled up tho decimated ranks of our armies; and those womi'n, who. like, very angola of mercy, ministered to our wounded, sick aud dying soldiers, in camp and hospital, the strtu'glc, would have been much harder, if we had not utterly failed in the terrible internecine war. And withal, the Geld-i were cultivat ed, the granaries of the nation were kept full, and all were supplied with lood as before. Farmers hold the keys to the grans at ies of the world, and though a be lli lice nt Providence, distribute to the hungry millions or earth their daily bread. I Perhaps it is lor this reason that the word grange, whose first mean ing is grain, is also made to mean farmer, that the producer and the t1 intr p'oduced are signified by the same term. We believe that it will be a bet ter day for'America, when those who have so often helped to save our na lion, shall have more potent voice in runuing it. W h more fanners in our slate and national legislatures. we believe a happier day would dawn lor our free republic. Then, surely, political corruption would re ceive such rebuke from honest, sturdy yeomanry, as to make it hide iu uly head. Alien would flow "peace ou eaith, goodwill to man," followed by the establishment of a more perfect and more universal brotherhood of ihe race. Ex Georgia ha made thia year plenty of food tor homi consumption Und a good cotton crop. With a Rood cheap white government, and the ad vantage ol diiect trado "through their growing port Savannah, the Georgians are on -the high road to prosperity. TV- v " t .. 4.' I'll ("- f 4J .iw !?

Allen. Moro, Ills., Sep. 11, '74. Caldwell county council, Texas, was organized in June last. Tho council met again for the first time afterwards. September 5th, at which meeting the delegates declarod their determination to adopt co-operation in buying and selling. If they can not command at present more than one-tounh of a crop in cotton, they will use what they hive in the right direction, and increase their trade as they get able. The council was to have met again on the luth, at which time all the granges were to report tho amount produced and money that they can turn over to the council, when a business ageut will be aelect ed for the council, aud, by the flrat of October, they confidently expect to be able to make a start in co-operative trade.

Monterey offers equally as great advantages for loading ships as San Francisco, with the additional reccui'nendations of chsapnees.
