Tlie Tammany Tltievca and Their Tuelts. People have been heretofore puzzled to explain how certain public officers in New York, who, without other busi ness than those of politics, and with out other incomes than salaries, have rioea to extraordinary opulence, aud become the Rothchilds .of the city. By what Aladdin's lamp, for instance. has William M. Tweed lighted himself step by step through the labyrinth of poverty and politics to such oriental wealth ? '. Such a man, we will say, has a daughter to be married. What will he do for her on her wedding day ? He will flusli the occasion witii roal pur ple ; he will gild it with line gold ; he will garnish it with gems and precious stones until the shining list of Solo mon's gifts to Sheba's Queen is out lustered by a New York bride's sump tnous souvenirs of her fond father, and of his henchmen, and -.is appoint ees, aud his time servers,' and his sat ellites. - Then, too. we witness the spectacle tweutj- times a da3' in this city, of a type of municpal officer, wlio, whether of a high or low grade, can roll his fine coach to Central Park, return to his brown stone mansion and his rich dinner of viands and old wine; vary his family pleasures by pilgrimages in courtly style, to the summer watering It is hnrdby possible to give, in a single article, a plan for the raising of wheat, suited to every locality and var iety of soil.

' The Times has solved the rfddle. What was heretofore dark has been brought to light. A key to the bye rojrlyph has been found. The Co-mtv Court House is the treasure vault of tbe Tammany ring, This is an 'unfinished white-marble buildine in the City Hall Par!?, of moderate size and capacity, fitted up for county offices and courts, and which, to say nothing of the original cost of the structure, has cost for its furnishing (and, still stranger, for its repairing !) the following bill of items, to the accuracy of which, the Times is .1 ready to make oath .$8,793 024 92 . 6TJ.75S 49 them in City Hail Park, and hang them ou its green trees. : We do not advise this method. There is a mora excellent way. Let public sentiment blast the malefactors. But will the people rise and strike r Is it not true, as Dean Swift has taught, that "there is as much pleasure in be ing cheated, a to cheat V" ' Will not the popular iudignation, that burns hotly for a time, al last consumes itsell before it has blistered the renegades r Would not the usual aud heavy Demo cratic majority, in this city, triumph antly re-elect these same swindlers to morrow V Of course it would! Let ns point a single mora!, and then dismiss tlie case. I he ring that rules the city1, aspires to rule the Nation. It hopes to nominate j and elect a candi date of ita own choice, as President of the United States. . Hoffman, or some other luable tool, is' already pre-cho sen for that purpose. In view of a Democratic victory in 1872. (which, may Heaven avert !) what would fol lowed ? There would be the. same plundering of the United States Trea sury which we now witness Tn New York Cit3". If the knaves ' steal ten millions here, they would steal a hun dred millions there. Having not only a single city, but the whole country to plunder, what honest man will dare to calculate the measure of their greetl ? We ask the American people to' think once, twice ana thrice, beiore tney look forward without hery. indigna tion, to the bare possibility of a Tam many President of the United States. A. Ten Per Cent. Investment. If any farmer wishes to put from a hundred to one thousand do llars into an investment that will pav"'bim and his posterity ten per cent. , annual in terest, we say, drain. In our frequent trips about the coun try, we occasionally see a farmer, more enterprising than his neighbor, put ting down a few tiles : but alter all the proofs of its good- enects, that the m precious grain. " And every farmer should bear fully in mind this fact in the application of anj' rules for cultivation of any crop that his own judgment must be exer cises in their appliance, if he would not miss the mark. It is a singular fact, that none except civilized nations profitabh' raise wheat, the perfection of this crop being commensurate only, with the civilization which fosters it. Fvcry provident farmer is contin ually asking himself, and using all available sources of information, in re gard to the best varieties of seed, time of planting, and plan of cultivation. Nothing short of this, can bring ag ricultural pursuits up to that standard which will afford tlie best results. Is mental labor more difficult to perform, or expensive than manual labor? Much has been said, and written about manures and their application, and common sense teaches that con stantly exacting without returning on rquivaient, must eventually impover ish the land ; yet how little effort, if property directed, is- inquired to keep up the original fertility of the soil, and m all the prairie States especially. SOIL AJTD SEED. After all that has been said in regard to certain properties ot the soil, re quired to grow certain crops, as silica, the phosphates, etc., to form the per fect grain of wheat ; who ever saw a field of straw, waving in glaring bright ness tinged with 'yt l'.ow, as of pure gold, without seeing a fine crop of wheat? Farmers! get your straw right, and your generous soil will fur nish the material for the grain. time or SOWING. Shis depends on the season, insect enemies and other things, to be deci ded by each farmer for his own imme diate vicinity. - Other things being favorable, it is important that wheat should be sown early enough to be come well rooten, and also to lorm whatever protection the blades mar give; and here lies the great difficulty connection with successful wheat YYILLETT'S GALLERY!

It must be remembered, too, that this carpenter-work has been done to an edifice of stone; that these carpets are laid en marble floors ; "and ' that these repairs were made to building bran new and not xet finished In addition to tlie preceding outlay, the Times also declares that nearly three millions of dollars have been spent on the furniture and repairs of a tew armories and drill-rooms . Now. keeping in mind these facts discouraging to those who have in view the interests ot the agricultural classes, but in the midst of the dis couragement there is one encourage ment, viz. : that we have never yet seen the man who, having given draining a fail- trial, was not satisfied that "it pays to drain." Now, brother farmers, let us have a little plain, sensible talk about the mat ter. All plants need their best growth air, heat, moisture, mellow: soil, and plant food (manure). VV hat they can not thrive in, is hard soil or standing water. Your soil may be mellow as far down as the plow reaches, but beneath this, unless your . sul is quite sand37 or gravelly, there is a strata of hard, unyielding soil, packed by forces of gravitation for ages past; and this soil not only holds water like a cup in wet of sure Crops, without the necessary protection from the rigors of Winter, with alternate freezing and thawing, a pot-r crop is the result. Everything which will tend to guard it from this danger should be spplicd. Light soils should be compressed by the roller, that tl.e roots may easily penetrate the ground. It certainly pays to thorough y prepare the seed-bed, before the seed 13 inserted, and If put in with a drill, much will be gained by; having it of a uniform depth, which should not be more than one-half inch below a well compressed surface. A half bushel of oats sown broad-cast and dragged in previous to planting the wheat, might: prove beneficial as a covering lor the -oung plant; thus preventing the rays of the sun i-udden-lv thawing the surface of the ground while it is vet frozen beneath.

Neither can it be held by the soil, and both run down together, leaving the crown and roots of the wheat plant bare, to be killed by the first dry weather. It is of the greatest importance that all wet lands should be drained thorougbly. EXriAUSTED SOILS. Has the soil became exhausted from a succession of the same crop? Then proper means should be applied to re store it by rotation, clovering, and the application of manures. If course, putrescent manure is applied, it is hardly safe to risk wheat the first year, from the liability of an abnormal or overgrowth of straw, too much sub ject or climatic influences. This is especial' the case on most prairie soils, where the native fertility is abundant, j et not in a state to be ap propriated to the growth of plants. Clay or heavy soils arc considered the best for wheat ; yet, with proper culti vation, it does well in all parts of the United States, except from local causes.
