the life of a Inrmer, where f n lunes are
not nui'le iu'an hour. Thry aie not'
aware that (he pursuit of agriculture
can be made ono of most happy an i
independent, as well as p'ogrcssive,
occupations that our Creator has
placed before us, and as lor comfort
und hnppiucs, it rests more in the
hands of a farmer to make it so than
any other prolessiou iu lite, ills cares
are not equal to the tradesman's, who,
when he invests his all iu a stock of
goods, takes his rUk ol fire, robbery
dishonest clerks, bad debts, uu 1 fi c
nueut failures of his brother mer
chants and business men. Ha sees
.heir skeletons in all linrtiches of trado,
and it is truly said that a man's hoalih
and linppiiiois are easier ruined bv
mental cure and toil than by inanua
labor. The queatiou comes, what can
be done to make the pursuit ol ngri-
culiure more, desiiable? In. the fust
piace, we, as a general rule, ncgleot
education. Let our sons aud daugh
ters bo thoroughly educated, so that
our sons may bo ratable of ossistinir
iu revising our laws and averting our
igius in our lesiirlative halls, and
then we mny hopo to see some of the
canul, railroad, end other political
rinfts broken up, and we hall not be
unduly taxed lo euppjrt an army of
contrrctors and political jobhets in
wealth aud uftlueuco. As we become
better educated we shall be more re
fined, and our homes will be rendered
more attractive. It requires but lit
tle time and labor t6 plant shade aud
Iruit trees, und flowers, and by spend
ing a few leisure hours in to doinjy we
shall be doubly repaid. Thore is no
reason why our homes aud firesides
cannot be made as pleasant and Imp
pr a." those of our h it uds in town. I
Jo not mean as costly and cxtrava
gant as theirs, lor we must not con
sider our happiness na dependent on
these things. There- uie, too, some
privileges that wo us farmers do not
fully appreciate. We can spend our
evenings at homo with our lamilies.
This is not so in many other pursuits
of life. -Secondly, in the cold and
stormy days of winter many leisure
hours cau be devoted to reading and
improving odr minds. There" is no
reason why the bead ol every house
hold should not provide plenty ol
good reading matter for the amuse
ment and improvement of Lis family.

CiTtb Rights in Kentucky On
March oth a meeting of white and
colorid citizens of Ilarrodsburg, Mers
cer county, was held, at which the
Oi vu Itghts Act was discussed by
several lawyers, preachers and oth
ers. The result was lie unanimous
adoption of the following resolutions :
Resolved, That in our opinion
there is a radical difference between
civil and social rights ; the former is
the investment of the freeman, the
utter is limited by tbe triple circle
of private inteiest, pleasure and affec
tion. Within this tacred arena none
may enter unbidden, and from it the
unwelcome may be rightfully ex
pelled. Resolved, That we conjure our
people to be cautious, considerate and
resectfu! lo all ; to refrain from all
words and acts that may offend or
mar the peace of society. The gov
ernment has spoken to us, and com
mitted the future to our own hunds.
Our destiny will bo, under God, what
we choose to make it.
R.solved, That industry, economy,
intelligence, morality and teligion are
the five points ol permanent, private
and publij pi ogress. These virtues
we ought, we must and we will culli
vate, if we hope to succeed in life.
. Resolved, u hat with malice to
none and charity to all, we enter up
on the pathway of free men, hopiug.

desperate affair between two di-itin-gaishsd
The seconds took their principals
aside and thoroughly drilled them iu
their particular luetics. Leech, Butt
terwoi Ib's second, advised bis princl'
pal to maintain bis position and re
ceive the rhot ol his adversary with
out Incurring the hazard of disturb
iug the accuracy of bis aim by ad
vancing. Two pistols were placed
in the hands of the combatants and
two iu their belts. Butterworth in
sisted ou the two in the belt having
the hair-trigger sprung. His second
demurred, b-it DuiterwortU made a
point of it, rather ruffled at bis
friend's objections, thinking that ho
doubted his coolness and nerte.
The triggers were set, tho parties'
took their positions, the word wis
given, and grant advanced slowly,
taking deliberate aim and fired, with-'
out effect. He stuffed the oilier pis- -tol
into his right hand and advanced
a few steps farther, when Butter-
worth, resting pistol on his left arm,
took deliberate aim and fired. , The
ball grazed the upper lip of Grant, .
causing him to i eo til. He quickly .
resumed bis selfspossession and ad
vanced with his second pistol. But
terworlh fired again, and the bullet .
entered the muzzle of Grant's pistol,
caused it tc explode aud knocked it
out of Grant's hand. - -
Grant immediately drew ono of
the pistols from his belt and fired at
about ten paces, his ball passing
through the coat, shirt, and under
shirt of Butterworth, without touch- -iag
bis body, but striking tbe belt iu
about where his two spare pistols
with the hair triggers sprung were,
causing them to explode, with tho .
muzzles down, the contcuts lodgiog
in the earth and fairly enveloping
Butterworth with the dirt and dust
which they created.
Butterworth was then left without .
a load, and Grant with one. But
Butterworth, with great self-possession,
stooped and picked up one of
Ibe discharged pistols, cocked it and
leveled at Graut, who returned tha
compliment with his remaining pistol.
Neither desired to fire as it was a
great point to have tbe last shot, ' -whioh
would bava placed the party,
who l3d discharged bis last load
completely at the mercjr of h's antag
onist, who could have walked op
within a few feet and deliberately
shot him. Butterworth s second,
perceiving bis ruse, that tho pistol ha . ,
bore in bU band had exploded, felt
deeply concerned for the result. But
it was evident that neither Gsant dqp
his second observed the maneuver.
All that we have desorihed oa-
curred in about a ball minute, but
when the parties were brought to a
stand with their last shot a pause of
nearly a miuute ensued. There wero
consequently eight and a half minutes , ,
remaining for the combat,' when, a
parley was called by tbe seconds, and,
it was pioposed that they should
withdraw their principals and load
fur another shot.
While the Boconds were preparing
for this nncoiinter, the crowd, who ,
had beta kept off for soire time,
broke through the lines and inter
fering between the consbatauta, de
clared tbu the fight should end there. ,

but wes never resumed.
