FIEU) A.I 1 EDUCATION K11 FAIlMEliS The 7(-hmiwi.' Vv .i'i'i r li:n .m rnirabic editorial on the subject of "Education for Farmers," from which wc make the following extract : 11 Becati"'j on9 has a. sproUl vocation h? is nona the le-s a man. M;u will be jtiilgPil after all by vhal th'i arc. Their Iinfpi ness, also, will depend very irrcnily on thei character of their menMl Rtnl spiritual re sources. Niw if the pn?iiioii of n firmer is worthy of a man, then it I'i'llow? that CTery farmer should m ike himst If n much of a nan as possible. TRat i, b tbould bring every one of bis powers an i faculties to the highest devclopinciit within bis Teach. KcasoD, imagination, memory, taste: hive of the true, the lx-autiful and the good, are all to be cultivated to tbe highest extent which It is ciivimitances will allow. To deny this, is to say that a fanner does not need to be a whole man. To deny this, is to drive evory farmer's son, who has j any ambition, into some other c i!!i:ip. how ever full the ranks intent be. lie had rather ha an iuler, a bricfk'.-s lnwyr. or a minister without charge, an J 1? considered a man, than to be full of honest toil on the farm and be considered a drudge. To keep our talented young men on the farm, where they are so much needed, it must be taught that farmers should be men of talent. A truly liberal education should bo demand ed for them. This will not interfere with their farming ; but it wi'.l greatly enhance their own dignity and worth, and will larjr-e-ly increase their sources of happiness. All that will inform therefore, as history, liter ature, astronomy, nnatorry n:id physiolo gy; all that will discipline ar,d develop the mental powers, for which Latin and Greek, and the higher mathematics are so excellent ; all that will cultivate tho ta-te and refine the sensibilities, as poetry and art, all these- studies should be pursued by the intending farmer to the highest ex tent that his circumstances willalow. A far mer, no more than any other man, has a right to stunt himself and settle down into a third rate or fourth rate existence. We protest, that no farmer need leave his chosen pursuit to make the most of him self" This meets our views of the ques tion exactly. There is something so heartless in the idea that a man, be cause he has chosen the honorable calling of a farmer, must " settle down into a third rote existence," that 'we instinctively record from it. It is a doctrine to which wo will never yield our assent, until it is made clear to our minds that farmers must conduct themselves as slaves to the balance of mankind. What is it that drives so many young men from the farm, to seek more congenial employ ment? Nothing contributes so much to that result as the contemptible idea that is so prevalent in the world, that a farmer need not be educated, and that by common consent he is to do the drudgery for the balance of the world. AVe deny that such is the case. We insist that the farmer has just as much need to le thoroughly educatek, not merely to yoke cattle, wield a scythe, harness a horse, or to perform the manual labor of the farm, but that he should be well versed in science and the lit erature of the da "When such a standard of education is adopted for the farmer, and farmers are thus edu cated, there will be less discontent among the sons of fanners, and fewer of them seeking other occupations. A Good Time to Tarn Back. When you are asked to take a drink. When you Hud you are courtlDg a lovenly anJ extravagant girl. When you liud yourself in doubtful company. When you discover that your ex penses are running ahead of your in come. When you think that you are a great deal witter than older and more experienced people than yourself. When you feel like getting trusted for a new suit of clothes, when you haven't money to pay fir them. When you don't perform your duty, your whole duty, and nothing but your duty. Caked Udder. The beat remedy we ever tried wan to bathe thoroughly and perstbteutly with tepid water, and milk clean. Borne use salt and M uter, others fcalt and vinegar, but we doubt whether they have anv advantage over the pure water. The udder at such times Is, of course, intlamed, and perhUtent application of water will reduce the inflamatiou, enabling you to draw the milk. It may require several bathings to eutirley remove the cake. but we are confident that three times out of four it will prove successful.

THE SWEETWATER SCANDAL Tlir Ollirr NKIn of the I mf, ."wkktwatkh, Tknn., July 31, 1873 To thr. Illitor of the CUronicle: In the iwsue of the A'c of dnto thi'21'tli iimt., Is tin article headed the "Sweetwater SiVindal," (which -dioull have been called the Lea I Spring" iSciiiidal) accompanied by n let ter rroni t-enox, which contains sever til statement, but very few facta, en proceeding to make any charge, the following niimulur and startling sen tence prexeiitp itnelf. " Littietliil they suppose thai he (C'hriHuian) wax an advocate of the tUtestilile doctrine of HeeeherNiii, which seems to be eU'eef ing the ministerial fraternity through' our the land." Here f-senex unprov voked, makes a sweeping charge of incontinence against the clerical " fra ternity " of America, exhibiting an utter contempt for religion, by grossly attacking the entire body of divines, and indirectly accusing them as a a class, as wanting in virtue, and therefore, undeserving of the ccnlU dence nud respect of all the people. Asa lover of justice, a member of a Christian church, and a supporter of, and believer in the chastity and relig ion of the honorable body of men, I hurl back as false, tlieiutainous charge, and denounce the attack as cowardly in its nature, false in its premises, un manly in its design, nnd ussussln-like in its character. If Mr. Clinsmnn, or any other minister, is guilty, prove theiu so, hut in the name of justice do not calumniate the clergy as a body. The name "Seucx" implies silver hairs, judgement, mature tliouclit and reason. Surely then.he lias rt fleeted hut little before making so gross and sweeping a charge. But to the unfold ing of the letter. It says, "on the ar rival of the eastern bound traiu, Mr. Chrisman got oil' the cars and at once repaired to the residence of Mrs. Tuck er. The purpose of his visit is yet un known, uud lie only remained until the couiinguown of the western train." Tins seems a plausible statement, but it is not true. Mr. C got oil" the eastern train at and came to the store of Ilighl & Scruggs, asked for Major Iliaht, went into the Drug store, then to the residence of Mrs. Tucker and staid one hour and eleven minutes, neither more nor less. Ho much for this misrepresentation. Atjam, frenex savs. "while here he did not visit any of his ilock, except ilrs. i ucker." J,et us set r-euex right airaiu. lie went to the otllce of Mr. Woodward, and from there to the res idence of Mr. A. Chance, who is an Klder of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church In this place, lie remained there a long while, ate bis dinner, and repaired to the depot, and there stayed until he stepped into the cars. Again, the venerable senex asserts that "some of the members are inclin ed to think that they are innocent, while the majority believe that they are guilty of great imprudencies, if not of criminality." A majority, and a very large one, to my certain knowl edge, believe no such thing, aud will never denounce them as guilty until proved to be so. A mere circumstance is not evidence, aud a charge direct or indirect is not proof. J5ut again, lie says, "there has not been any action by the church, look ing to an investigation of the affair.'' Another mistake. Steps have been taken to have the matter thoroughly examined into by an ecclesiastical court of competent jurisdiction. I as sure Henex that there is as little dispo sition among the members of this church to suppress, conceal, or varnish over any disreputable act, as there is to give credence to all the vile, low, and diabolical slanders that till the laud. Ho much for the communica tion of tiii A antediluvian fossil. Now, if you will permit me, I will give a brief history of the case, setting forth the facts, and detailing the circumstances that originated the unwarrantable and malignant slander. Mr. Crisman and Mrs. Tucker were at Lea's Hpriugs, boarding at the same hotel. On two occasions they walked out together; once in company with another lady, and the second time alone, in the pub lic road. Very criminal this, indeed. On the afternoon of the 17th of July a violent storm, accompanied with much electricity, passed over that sec tion of county. Its ellecta could not be seeu'from . the ladies' rooms on the opposite side of the passage. Mrs. Tucker, feeling some alarm, and de siring to witness the electrical display of the elements, went into Mr. C'ris man's room, the door of which stood open. And while she was standing at the window a gust of wind slammed the door shut. Just at this moment a lady came to the door and asked Mr. C. for some matches. He gave them to her, and Mrs. Tucker accompanied her from the room. This is the slan der complete. Is'ow I ask any virtu ous mind if there is in this the slight est criminality ? The country is in a fearful situation, If every couple, married or single, who walk, ride or sit together iu a room alone are to have their charac ters assailed, their virtue suspected, and their names published for the sport aud derision of the heedless multitude whose prurient maws are never so well satislied as when digesting the latest scandal. The situation Is truly critical, for no man, woman, youth or maiden are safe. For slander has more eyes than Argus, more tongues than JSriareus bad hands, more energy than Hisy pbus, more venom than the viper, and more villainy than Hatau. its attacks are more cruel than detail, aud mote relentless than the grave; for one grapples with you face to face ; no hidden weap ons ; no masked designs. Its banners bear no dubious device. It is victory or death ; the other stalks abroad in In the vestments of darkness, firing its envenomed arrows from tho ban dit's ambush, indiscriminately, at chastity, virtue, iuteuritv. friendship. and iu line every (juality that tends to honor, elevate and rellue the human race. Every parent is interested in suppressing this growing evil. Every woman is vitally so, for the female character is like a highly polished Grecian mirror ; a breath, the passing shadow of a vapor upon its surface, mars its beauty forever, and no amount of after care aud labor can ever restore it to its pristine tX'kudor tuid LiUii' ancy. It Is as delii-.ite as the flower that buds In the oasis of the desert; once lilasteil ly the poisouous simoon of slander, It withers ami blooms no more, Its beauty Is destroyed, and its jmcrance lost forever. Ql have several motives in writing mis article, uneis a natural love 01 Justice ; another to contribute my mile towards stemmg tho torrents of Man der.that bill fair to inundate tbe land, and lluallv that no woman iu tiie XlXth century, shall with outstretch ed hands and streani'"T c-4 plain that she has no will write a plain recti. refutation of a base sla. no . maud that time, place, . ...nstniice and niiuu'S of witnesses be iveu, and not mere surmises and slanderous lu ll uendos, which can be son' fully array ed and marshalled as to uti rly destroy the strongest fortress that virtue has ever elected. FitAXK A. Kamsay. ALABAMA. A (.raniiry Iluruetl Horrible Cane of Murder, ICfc. Union Simuxor, July 31. On last Monday night, Mr. James Grady, a farmer living some few miles from this place, lost his granary, together with about ,'SOO bushels of corn aud all the oats made from llt acres of land, which was consumed hy lire. Mr. Grady suspected a negro of burning the granary, whom he arrested. The negro denied that he did the burning, but confessed that his brother was the guilty party. Mr. Grady then tried to arrest the accused, who made good his escape. i esterdav evening a negro was found murdered in the neighborhood, who was horribly mangled, with his tongue pulled out of his mouth and iw stick ran through it. The negroes all sus pected Mr. Grady of tbe murder who is a highly respected gentleman aud soon after the hotly of the dead negro was louuit ttiey gathered in large crowds around his residence, threaten ing to bum him out entirely, and " to make sausage meat of him." Mr. Grady made Ids escape from the house with his family, nnd lied. The news came to town.Jand the Hherill", with a posse ot well-armed men, left here this morning for Mr. Grady's residence, to disperse the mob, and hold an in quest over the dead body. The mob lias oeen estimated hy some to he l.oOil, armed with every conceivable weapon. A Man Dies of the Hiccough. ; From the liurliniiton llawkeye. About one of the most singular cases of death that ever came within our province to mention is that of Milton W. lilair. of I,ouisa countv. who died last week in California, of the hic coughs. Mr. B'air is an old merchnut of Louisa county, but has not been engaged in business for a number of years. He has been residing near Morning sun since retiring from busi ness. Last fall he was attacked with a fit of hiccoughing, which continued for some weeks, with scarcely any in termission. Becoming alarmed at the loug continuauceof the spell, Mr. U. came to Burlington to consult with a doctor, who, after treating him a while, declared he could give him no relief. From this city he proceeded to Chicago, and consulted the best med ical authorities there, who did all in their power, hut could not relieve him. lly their advice he went to California. accompanied by his sister, thinking mat the change or climate would help him, remaining in that Htate to the time of bin death, hiccoughing almost continually, and having but few In tervals or rest. The continued strain and distress wore him to a mere shadow of his former self, aud last week his sister telegraphed to friends and relatives In this and Louisa coun ties that he was dead, and she was bringing his remains on for burial. A Htabbluu; Ncrne Occurred in the 2d district ou Monday week between G. W. Vann and Aaron Cormany, in which the latter was ser iously slabbed iu the breast aud atido men. For several days his life was de spaired of, but late information states that he is recovering. the uimcuity was all about a nog of Cormany's, whose mysterious death Vanu understood Cormany had charged him with. Vann called to see about it, and after a few words came fo blows, with the above result. It was a running hisht, iu which stones aud brickbats were freely used, each thus alternately knocking the other down. The most serious wound was received by Cormany in the abdomen a lontr. deep gash but none of the vitals were readied. V ann has not been seen since the light and it is not kuown whether he was injured or not. The corn ha t auts were brothers-iu-la w. at Ten" ntssccan. Godless Geographies. Buffalo Expreu. Sneak in? of the geographies in use in the public schools, the CutUulio 2L- cgrunh, of Cincinnati, says : " Is'o Catholic can, with safe con science, consent to the use of books from which compilers have either wit tingly or uuwittingly neglected to give to true religion that importance wnicu 11 uetterves." The inference from this seems to be that All text books used iu public schools should be subject to revision oy me authorities ot the Catholic Church. Is this the next step iu the programme? For the sake of know ing what to expect, it would be a re lief if the full demand, the granting of which would satisfy the Catholic cler gy, could be clearly aud fully defined. The friends of public school would no doubt like to know just bow much of a surrender is required of them. There Is to be a hanging at Kuox- vllreontho loth itist. The name of the party is John ebb, sentenced for murder and outrage. Home weeks ago the pastors of that city united iu a pe tition to the sheriif to have the hang ing privately iu the Jail yard. The matter was discussed iu the communi ty and mentioned in tbe papers. The sherill" took time to consider, felt the public pulse and concluded that he could not comply with the request, so the hanging will be public Mtuihii EAGLE WING PROPELLER.
