The order grew out of the prcs-ing wants ot the tunes, ami waxed strong steadily and rtipidly since its existence. In the short time of live or six years it has spread throughout the length and bieadih of this country, and in this State it now numbers between six and seven hun dred Granges, and is now viewed by political demagogues as menacing the political equilibrium of the most stead fast States lias disappointed the cal culations of veteran campaigners, and put professional .office-seekers to more embarrassment than even the back pay. Editorial Scalpiug- JExtmct from Sheul' aui's Aililrt-Mi before IHI-l'-us AsaocUUou.l Have we not overdone the patriot ism, i.nd havo wo not retarded the advancement of journalism, by this willingness lo scalp one another to gratify the mob, which after ino op- j eration, ha, or ought to have, a low er opinion of both actors than it had before? Personal journalism never tends to exalt the profession, or exalt the journal that indulges in it. It is a waste of time, labor, and means for one newspaper to devote its col umns to the annihilation of the ter soual character of the gentlemen who pnblipli another paper. Wasto ol time, labor and means is, in the:o util itarian days, a crime. Newspapers are published for the pecuuiaiy bene fit of the owners. There may be ro mar. th notions of another kink, that journalism has higher aims than the accumulation cf pelf, bat we know differently, and,- like sensible men, may frankly state that we print and publish our newspapers for the pur pose of making the most money we can. The man who makes the best paper, as a general thiug, makes the most money ; and the lean who makes the most money, as a general thing, can make the best paper, if he knows how. Wo are bidders for the public confi dence and the public trade, just as the lawyers, the physicians or the mer chants are. We offer our services to the public just as they do, and expec pay therefore as they do; and among the services we offer them is a good newspaper, conducted witli doercgard to public decency and morality, aud advocating such policy and measures; as we may think best for the public interest. .01 iff, A-Ht vtutt'i ut t I I i if i n i I i i . , i I . i In I ! f . ,!

Ju consequence of this, the products o! cur fields havo been sub ject, to the manipulations of rings, schooled in the tactics of chicanery, who by tricks and persuasion have impressed the producer, ti nt without their assistance, he would be unable to reach the consumer in a neighbor ing Male of our country, much less find the markets of the old world. So long, indeed, have we lis ened to (he story of our incompetency in business matters, that we had almost udinitled the inferiority of our class in every regard, fn the light of aM thi;, what do vou think of a Grunge fleet on the Pacifio Ocean ? Do you think our rrothers of California have cone cra zy ? Ah, m brothers, that is not what'e the matter, a change is cominp. Theirs is the great wheat producing Stale. Their product of this cereal will this year probably exceed in vaK uo $10,000,000. The enormous pro duets cf 'Ins husbandry io tho years pamt had, under tho old'or.'er of thing-, built up tho jnost power ul monopoly on the continent. Fr ed lander had grown to be a millionaire in shipping the farn.eis' wheat to Europe His ill-gotton wealth was used to impoverish Ihe hands that had built him up. Hedged about aud ground down by a monicd aris tocracy, whoso greed for gain was whetted by their suicessful plauder ings from labor, the fanners of that State were driven by necessity to or ganize and co-operate. Some thir teen month s:nce, at their call, it was our good fortune to raise the stand ard ol'oiir retonn on that coast, in stituting the Staic Grange of Cati-ioruia- An older requiring its members to address each other as brethren, should teach the principles of lair dealing, and generons conduct ia the every day relations of life.

Farmers generally, and especially farmers' wi.es, are overworked. They work j tod many hours iu a day, too many days in a week, nn 1 too many weeks ju n year. Nothing is gained iu the cud by thus slaving the lilo uwiiy. Though most fanners regard it a necessity, yet it is through the Grange we are to learn better , ami the sootier we set about it the sooner shall wo see that wo might have done so before. Let us uet to gether in the Giar-go, und by think ing a little, devise some plan of divid ing our hard work with tho sleek and well fed middle man, and of sharing a portion of his elegant leis ure. Of course ho will object to this show of generosity on our part, but we must press our courtesy upon him until there shall be something like a fair distribution of tho good things of this world between us. Wo do not demand extraordinary privileges; wo demand justice. We do not la bor to pull others down ; we labor to build ourselves up. Six thousand years of einirledianded effort has fail ed to accomplish any satisfactory re sults iu that direction, and it is but tho part of common wisdom lo try other means to lighten our labors and enhance our profits. "The Grange is tha salvation of the larmer, and needs only to be main tained by energotie, intelligent, and, above nil, harmonious action, to accomplish all tho desirable results within t ho scope of any human institution. Stun I by tho Grange, then! Sustain it by zealous labor, and the persistence which of itself in stil es sueeess.

It is pro posed to espend part of it for libra lies for subordinate granges. One of the cardinal principles of the Grange is lo buy nothing yon don't want, and nothing .vou can't pay for. N man who tlaays lived up to this principle ever died in the poor hone. Tlio Mater of the Kansas State Grange, M. tl.

The points to be united are Cupey valley mid Eikhorii Landing. In Louisiana, no Grange can be or ganized with a less charter member ship thun fifteen irales and four fe males, whilo most other states allow organization under the National Con stitution with nine males and four fe males. This we think should be tho universal rule, as it is essential to tho harmony and efficiency of tho order that all its work should bo done lu'te- ono pattern, and that pattern lash ioned by the National head. Wo trust this point also will receive tho early attention of the National Grange. Iu order ta organize a subordinate Grange, it is neeessaiy, as a firt-tslep, that the names of the requisite num ber of persons, actually engnged in agricultural pursuits, bo obtained as nearly as possible in the imtnediato neighborhood where the Grange is to lie oiganizcd.
