The interest and beauty Of the work of a Grango ia much enhance j by a caicful selection of officers. For Masters Iry ai'd select a live, wide-awako person, as he hos tho tame duties to perforin as n chu'iMiau or president in a puhlio meeting or club, with other duties as prescribed by the Ritual. The Orerseer has similar duties to perform, and takes the Master's place in his abseucc. The Lecturer imparls information to the Grange, lecturer, reads eu:h communications as comes to Ins hands, etc.. The duties of Treasurer need no explanation. Tl-.o Secretary should make true entries iu his journal of i ll the things done and past in the Grange. But he is not required to make a note of men's speeches, of things proposed or moved without coming to vote. He is charged with the custody of all tho papers and documents of every description be longing to the Grange, as well as tho journal of its proceedings, and is to let none of them be taken from the table by any member or other person, eicept for Iegitimato purp ises. He shorild stand while leading or calljng the Grange. Tim Steward has charge of the inside gite and per form such other duties as belong to bis oflktt.

Having mastered those, wo shall simply need pood common cense to guido uj iu their application. TALL PLOWING AS AS OPE.V QL'ESTIO.V. Fall plowing has been almo t a8 generally and persistent ly discussed hs deep and nhallow plowing, And the atrriculluriil doctors who Iihvc so de cidedly disagreed on tho subject, have left the question rather more unset tled thou when they essayed lo settle it, ond the poor farmer is still in tl o daik. The way to get light is to fall back on common sense, supported by cirelul experiments. What tiro the supposed advantages of fall plowing? 1. It tu.-ns under and covers, if prop erly done, tlie grass, weeds and other triisli Which h8 nceutnulatcd on Iho f-urfacrt, putting the whole into a po sition to become thoroughly digested and prepared for the sustenance of ihe spring crop instead of being blown off and lodged in the fence corners. 2. It opens tha soil to tho disintegrating ond Ameliorating in fluences ol frost, which rendei it more permeable to water ond Iho fertilizing gasses. 3. It may often So dono when other work is not pressing, and thereby lighten iho 1 bor oT prepara tion in the rpring, when It is im port end to lot ward ihe operations 'of the season as quickly as possible. Now, when the question of fall plowing 'ernes up, we must bear the points in m:nd, and nk ourselves whether, in the pArticuhir case presented, is it de sirable and practicable to promote the objects specified, or either of therti, and if their attainment will bo worth the expense of tho work ? If so, let ns plow by all means. Bat if, on the contra, y, there be little or no vegetable matte on the surface to turn under, which, however, is seldom the case, the first named advantage would be lost : if our soil be already too loose and friable, and esjiecially if liable to wash, we should not de siro to increase that evil ; or if it con sist ol that kind of clay which a sin gle rain will melt again into a solid mass, our lalior in breaking it hp would be lost ; and fall plowing would le a piece of ntter lolly. Much deiends on tl.e Master In if j Grange. He should be a progres-ivc, reeding, thinking, active man. He should lead as an officer, aod have his sng,'estioo ma'tored and sound, and then he will have tho confidence of the members. Let tho Masters wake up to the importance of their position, aud be prepaied for any emergency. Sou I hern A grieul lurist. The Grangers of Augusta county.

"Justice to farmers" was the err so often heard but never heeded "Hon cty of offk-o-holdeTs" was the demand sent up from every toiler's cottage in the land ; " death to oppression " was heard in every town and hamlet on which tho bloated monopolist could set his iion heel ; "social elevation of tho laboring classes" came in plain tive tot.es from multitudes ol sad but eainest souls. And these were the ends lo be secured. So when a new and uncorrupted class of men and wo men stepped to the front and dared lo grapple with questions relating to this great relbim, many of you did not stop to reason further nor talk about chibboleihs, and dogmas, add antiquated customs. You stripped for the fi.ht and enlisted lor the war. And this is reason whyin "re pa 1 1 on. Columbus Grove Vid'-t'o. isi" ! i u it' 4 (o r?

Tho above Resolutions, commend themselves to the earnest and imme diate attention of every Giange 'hroughout the State, aud each Pat- i should realize the importance of the rueusure, and respond promptly and liberally to the call. The great need of Mississippi is immigration, and lo secure this we must offer some of ihe many inducements we have, which can be easily done without nny serious sacrifice on the part of our people. Let the Couniy Granges take immediate notice of this import ant matter and report as toon as pos sible. Subacrlbe forTheSiAi. Grange Benefits Many outsiders seem to think that tho Granges are founded onlv upon pecuniary selfuhness ; that they aro a combination created for tho solrt purpose of cheapening lea, coffeo and sugar, and of ra(3i'ng the price of wheat, corn and potatoes Thi in not exactly true. There is no doubt but that a desire to moko farming pay better had very much to do in the founding of the Ord. r. and that thus far much of tho time and encriry of tho several Granges has i ecu de voted to the question of prices. And there is no doqbt but that tho pecun iary phase of the question hos had a great deal to do in bringing in mem bers, mid satisfying theiii whil in. Still, there Ims been much already ac complished, and there is much more among (he possibilities of the luturo awaiting the Patiei-, that is not con-, neeied with dollaraaad cents. The Patrons art 'itftt'rr. agnot o-.ly ho .v to make more money, but fiov to sivn 1 it in a more sensible manner They are learning that they have brains that need improvement, ns well as farms. The grange enables them to meet each other, compare notes, dis cuss questions pertaining to govern ment as well as grain ; and to sharp en op their intellects by neighborly friction- The grango furnishes, or ought to Inrnisb them with books, and the discussion on subjects of in terest ought to give them a taste for reading them. The social phase td the order is one of its chief attrac tions and benefits. It give a place and motive for neighborly meetings. It give? the farmers wife on excuse for slipping down from Iier home tread mill for a half day, combing out Ihe kinks from tier hair, donning her best calico, aud going out for a g)od, pleasant afternoon with her sisters in nCliclion. Sho goes home to her usual toil, refreshed in body and encouraged in soul. It makes better, more social and more harmo nious neighbors, thus dispensing witlt many of those little vexations and unnecessary law suits that do nobody any good save the lawjcrS. ?f. Y. Granger. . John Cochran, tho Master of tho Patrons ot Husbandry of the State of Wuconsin, has declined Ihe Repub lican nomination for Congress, in his Congressional district or the ground that it is a trap laid to draw the Pa trons of Husbandry, as au O'djr, in to politics which he respectfullir de clines to be a parly to.
