THE TI.HETO CO.HE.
This earth’s weary waiting time, The world is full of anrrovr, But soon within a cloudless dime Will dawn a brighter morrow; For that we watch, for that we wait, It ie the same old story. And An* time through the Future’s gate j Will come the promised glory. Xot ours, perchance, the bli«s of those Who greet its full appearing, Yet still triumphant o'er all foes We know that it is nearing; When truth and right shall grandly rise, And yield to no oppressing. And on all hearts the opening skies Shall shower.their richest btu.'siug. But while we look with eager trust For every welcome token, It may n »t come till ‘Must to dull” [ Ha-* o'er «»ar graves been «p»kon. Wo helped the precious seed to sow, We bore it forth with weeping, Xot ours the harvest-joy* tA know, Xot ours the golden reaping. Thank God that One **«n see, B*en from each small beginning: Nor counts the life in vain to be. That hoa«ts no outward winning. Without .1 thought of human praise. We'll bravely bear each harden, 1 util beyond these mortal days We clasp the longed-for guerdon! IIOIIUi; GIIKELEY. Somewhat over a century an I a hall ago, a colony numbering about two hun dred persons emigrated from Londonderry, Ireland, and settled in New Hampshire, giving their new home the name ol the county from which they had come. Among them wasa lamily name I Greeley; and one of that family marrying, the result was the birth of Zaccheus Oreeln . who in turn, took unto himself a wile, and at Amherst, New Hampshire, in February, 1X11, Hor ace Greeley uow candidate ior the Presi dency. came into the world Greeley's lather was a farmer, and not over well off in the goods of this world. Therefore Horace had to alternate his early days be tween the school and the farm, seeming, however, iu s|«te ol a weak constitution, to he continually improving at both. Fi nally, his father, failing to make the two ends meet, broke Up the place at Amherst, and betook himself and family to West Haven, Vermont. Ol T IN TIIK WORM).

I he said article embrace* nearly a coin inn of printed matter, which is taken front the People's Defender, of Adam* county, »nd front the Pike County Republican. I'lic publication is uot written in good I temper or Spirit. It ap|>enrs to be a stud ied eflbrt to impress upon the minds of the settler* on the unsold land* in the Virginia Mi Hilary District that they are the victims ot a conspiracy between the Legislature, the Trustees oi the Agricultural College, and Hon James M. Trimble, as tbe r"pl lesentative of the board ot trustees, charg ed with the duty ol causing these lands To be surveyed and the right of settlers upon them to be ascertained. Mr. Kylur, of the Defender, attacks the law authorizing the survey ami aale ol the lamia and inferenlhtlij the board of trustees, for lie says, “It seems to tts, that the law the |ieople need is one allowing the agent to sell in less qnnntities than 120 acres, instead of opening up these lands to soul less speculators; and adds, “there is room for them to do loo much grabbing under the law as it now stands." * • * « The Pike Canity Republican copies the entire article front the Defender, and then ; assails Mr. Trimble in the language fol ! low ing: “1 lie above is from the Peplet Defen der, printed in West Union, Adams county, and we bail its words, fitly s|oken, with delight. Had the pa|a-rs of the several counties taken the hill originallr in troJuoed at the instance of J. it. Trim ble, and exposed its nefarious provisions, the friends of justice and equity would ' have gotten through I he Legislature a bet ter law. It seems that the editors in sev- | « ral counties were derelict, and ought to 1 have done better. But we are glad that the interest lins not died out, and that .Mr. Trimble's intentions to again open the question, to the disadvantage of “The Peo ple, ’ against the interest of the State, and in favor of Swindlers, will meet a stern, determined successful opposition, and that Mr. Trimble will be defeated ami finally I driven from the Board of the Agricultural College, which he disgrace* by bis at tempts under tile cover of a law gotten through the Legislature by bis own exer tions, to distress the occupants of land in tended by Congress lo have been given to them outright, lie is a disg-ace to the College he represents, ami we are pained to believe that lie is making fools of some eigh teen gentlemen who do tint, or ought not! desire to do inju-lice, that a College large ly endowed by the munificence of Con gress, may prosper. We propose to ‘carry this war into Africa’— or that hoard itself, before the great wrongs Mr. Trimble evi dently intends shall be consummated." I cannot suppose that the editor of the Hepuhlican would employ the shove strong and opprobrious language lo an old and honored citizen of the State, engaged in the performance ol a high public trust con fided to him by the board ol trustees of which he is tv member, without ynotl rrtnse, ' The article is before me as 1 write. There t is no wherein it any charge that Mr Trimble lias in any respect violated his duties, or wronged any one. The men who have thus assailed his conduct, are invited to make specific charges and introduce tfieir proof. J>eing a member of tins boar I of trus tee*, an l an advi-ory member of the com mittee with Mr. Trimble to reclaim these 1 lands, I deem it a duty that we owe to the public, and especially to the settlers on these “Unsold Iasi-, with whom Mr. Trimble Iris purlieu arly to deal, to make the following (statement ot facts: I lie unsold and unreclaimed Ian h in the Virginia Military District had been sur rendered by the holder* of the miJilnry Ian I warrants to the I’nited States, and re eeiied therefor.

I cannot believe that Colonel Pike, or Mr. Eylar, would purposely iiillict It woun.l Upon the feeling* of Mr. Trimble, or at tempt to iveikeii public confidence in tlie Collette trustees, now engaged iu [lie per formance of important public duties. Mr. Trimble was selected bv tlie trus tee* to cauae tli >»e lands to be surveyed, divided and sold, and to adjust tlie claims of settlers, under tlie law, because they had confidence in his integrity and sagacity, and knew that he was more familiar with titles than any other member of the board, or any one they could employ. Mr Trimble accepted the trust knowing full well the onerous duties it imposed. As he had procured the grant of this land from Congress to the State, for the College, the board insisted upon his taking care of it. From my own knowlelge of the (nets, l do not hesitate to affirm that Mr. T. is performing lor the State, without pay, a service which would cost tile College fund at least #.»,OuU to hire done, lie, liko some of his colleagues have an honest State pride in their endeavor to establish at the Capi tal of the State, a University in fuel, eipial in all its appointments to any in the Uni ted States. ii wan tinn feeling that moved Mr. 1. to take measures to enlarge the endow ment fund. During the past three months lie has had from two to three surveying parties employed, spending a good share of Iiirt time with them. He lias already run «tr over 23,000 acres and is nut half through this branch of his task. Next will come the buying otr of settlers’ claims and procuring them titles. He has found some timber thieves on these lands who were operating some with |>ortal>Ie saw mills, others with workmen cutting railroad cross ties for the Cincinnati mar ker and others in getting tan hark, staves and locust timber for the markets. His surveys have brought to light an other class, viz; men who have made false entries, and claim thousands of acres with out the shadow of right. These facts are well known, and yet I am not aware that the people which have so violently assail ed the board of trustees, through Sir. Trim ble, their representative, have yet doue j anything to expose the numerous felonic-J under the statute which have been com*] milted upon these lands in their own coun ties. What motive can thc-e gentlemen have, j in thus attempting to bring the trustees »»i (he College into public scandal, tml. -s it be to forestall public up nion, in anticipa tion that they may institute in the courts the necessary legal proceedings to reclaim certain fraudulent entries of these Ian Is, based upon the double Crimea of forgery and perjury. The settlers will find no just cause of ; complaint, fur each re vives as a gift ab j •oluteiy forty acres.
