" Kuni and ruin " appears to be the win ning rallying cry in tbe state of Cam den and Amboy. Concord Monttor, " O.M-v a woman," says a westcrn contemporary, " understands the higber uses of flowers, and only a woman, thercfore, can put thetn to the best possible use." This is very pretty, but not true in all cases. About the worst possible use to wliich flowers can be put is to send theni to brutnl murderers; and yct it is genernlly woruen who do this.

BENATOB HAMPTON of South Caro lina proposes to buy Cuba and colonize tbc negroes. Ile wants the govern mcnt to appropriate 850,000,000. It is a very nice scheme, but like that for catching the hare it requires several things the consent of Spain, the con sent of Cnba, the consent of the ne groes and the consent of our govern menti Such a consensus can bardly be had very easily. Nathua Telegraph. Amkhican strikers sliould take a les son from the orderly conduct of the London laborers in their long contest with the dock companies. An Knglish mob is generally noisyand full of fight, but the present arruy of strikers, under prudent manageruent, have kept singu larly free from acts of violence, and for their sake, if for nobody else's, it is hoped they may preservethis honorable record to theend. New York Tribune. THE politicians of the South commit a grave mistake in making the elections farces, and too often bloody farces, and practicing fraud upon the elective fran chise. They are their own worst enc mies and the enemies of their section. To Intimldate and kill negroes under the plea of " white man's government " and tlie pretense of a war of races, with the war all on one side, is not cal culated to assure material progress or moral advancement in the South. Troy Times, " WHAT are the prospects?" asked one deniOLTutic j)ol it ician of another a few days after the IIarrisl)urg convcn tion. "Very discouraging," was tbe replv; "and growing more so every day." " Ifow so?" " Why, every day siuce the convenlion the "papers have contained rcports of iron manufactur ers voluntarily lncreasing the wages of their employee." "That is bad newa indeed, and doesn't give free-trade ar gumcnts any kind of a show." Norris toum Herald. A STOUNQ lady who went to a ball game tbe olher day said that it seenud to her that the principal feature of tbe game was for tbe plavers to get their uniforms aa dirty aa possible. " Why," she said, "the flrat thing that Kelly did was to slidc along the ground and get up all dirty. Tben when they were given a new white ball they Immedi ati lv rabbed it in the mud, and spoilt il beautiful appearance." Uut for this he thought slie liked the game. JSos ton Evening Beeord.

Redfleld Keudall of Kulland are all mentioned for tlie vacancy, with the chances generally believed to be in fa vor of Ormsbee. Governor Ormsbee is uudoubtedly a worthy gentleman, and an unusually fair-minded nian who nakei a very good referee, who doea everything well withiu his limitations.

The creatn whh from the state ox periment farm, Ohnrned in a Stoddard liarnd churn, wuslied when in (ine granular state, aalted and worked with a Wuters butter-worker, linisheil up ready for pac k ing, aml testcd liy the audii'tire. The whole procosR took about an hotir, hnt in the mean time 'r- Qilbert told all about. hOW to do it, from lettlDB the milk to paeking the butter. It was rather of a puttering job, and he slopped round on tlie tloor more than mo.st WOinen would allow of, hut tlie butter was good and the advlee sound, sensible and praoticali A sharp diacuBBion followed be- iween Mr. (lilliert and l'resldent DoUglaa on the temperature of setting milk. Mr. (lilbert would set it at ninety-llvt to ninety eight degrees and cool to below llfty de- grees, ainl get all tlie creaui in six or eihi DOUre, Mr. Douglas would have the milk set longer at sixty-three to Hixty-live le grees. They also differed as tothe ripening of the oream and tbe cao.se thereof, The debate waxed warm, aithough in geod tem- por. ProfeeiOt Atwater of Middletown, Donnj one of the highest eliemiral authori ties of the day, was in the auilience, and being ealled upon by Mr. Douglas to ex plain the cause of riiiening cream, spoke briclly but with that ('learne.ss and dlreot ness that. always plea,ses leamers. His ROlentiflo Version of the mattnr rather laid out President Douglas and helped the Yorker. Not havingtaki ti any notes, I an give no fair abstract of this interesting and instructive discussion that was carried oo until a late hoor. There is but little doubt but that a dairy eohool of this kind in every OOUnty WOUld be prolitable if rightly 0On dUOted, Theory isagood thing lfyou have theright one, but it takes actual praetice and pertormance to test and decide which is right. The dilTereiit ways of manipulat tng milk, oream and butter are importaut BUOjectB, and if they were better under stood there would be more uniformity in our dairy products, and that is wliat, we need uniformity and perfection as near as we can get it. The best butter pavs the beat. Thursday evening session was presliled over by I'rofessor Cooke. The churning was bardly ai IttOOeHful as on the evening before, Tlie cream was from dilTerent partieej the eudienee asked so many cpies tions that tbe butter was too long comiug and at working got too soft. It is evident that a man sliould not talk too much While making butter; still the talk was good. M. W. Davis of the board of agriculture spoke for twenty minutes on " Glltedged But ter" a very bad text. It is the edge of butter we know that eatehes tlie golden hairoftlie waiter girls. Old men sbould be rontent to have their butter bald-lieaib d. Uut Brother Davis always makea tlie best of the situation, so he talked mostly of good butter eows, good feeding, eleanlineSH, eto, of making solid, yellow, granular butter. He would work it tlie second time before paeking. In faet, Mr. Davis .seemed to Wanl tbe butter all right clear Ihrough, as well as the edging. Quite a debate was had on the kind of paekage best for keep ing butter. Mr. (lilbert prefers white oak tirkins beaded at hoth endl, Mr. Douglas had tried all kinds and preferred spruce, soake.d a week in brine. Tin tnbs did not seem to be favored, neither did any of the various ways of preparing wood by jiaratine or other substances. For I'hurns, most speak ers preferred a revolving kind, eitber barrel sbaped or sipiare. William Cnapln read a paper on " Cirass," olalmlng that to be the great and best orop for Vermont, urging ltl presi-rvation, in orease and improVement by top dreaeing, draining, cleariog the Beldsof weedg, stmies and useless fem es. For restorking he would sow tifteen pounds of herds grass and ten pOUndB of red dover to the aere, in eurlv pringi with a tliin sowiug of wheat, barley, oats or rye, and he would keep the eattle iiT the mowings at all times, tnt early and often, onre tborougbly, feed liberally and judieiously . This paper drew BOme ap- plauee fromoommon people, but waeeharply Qjitioieed by the eilotete and new ityle farmers. Mr. Qilbert claimed that ripe oorn iut Into a ello, eari and all, withoui OUtting, was a muoh better feed than any grass: that a 0OW kept three moutbe 00 clear berdl grass would grow poor and starve. Mr. Fergursoii said that some farms in Ubittenden couuty bad doubled their oapacity for keening stock by adopt Ing the new ityle of larming, oorn-raialng and more plowing. Mr. Douglae Bald be bad become a oonvert tothe gflo and was bullding one. Mr. Chapiu, in replv, Bald that be knew notliing of the stlo, was will- ing everybody sliould have one who eould get any good from it, but still believed that grass was more to Vermont than oorn, The addresscs that were advcrtisrd to be delivered by 1'rofcssor Cooke, It.

TBK Intervals between the meetings were spent in visiting such objects of interest as tlie state fair, tlie experimeut farm and F.lhan Allen's grave. The fair was an or derly and widi managed expoaltlon. The show of cattle, horses and shcep was very line. Jaraeyi and Ayrshires Neem to be the favorite breeds of eattle for milcb cows, wbile the Durhami, Herefordi, Devoni and some others inake a better Bhow as oxen or beuves. Among the sheep the Southdowns, Sliropshires and like mutton breeds liud more admirers than the once celebrated Merinos. The productB of the tleld and dairy were not as plenty as they OUght to have been. The season has not been very good for line farm productions.. Horse Besb seemi to oome to tbe frontin all our fairs nowadays, and pretty good horses too. on the whole, the fair was a oredit to the state and to (Ndouel Hooker, ita president, and lo all his alile assistauts. WHAT ItrUOh me as most rcmarkablc about the fair was the large attenduucu of ' visiting Mtatesmen," from I'nited Statea senators and members of congress, with govemors past, present and future idear UOWB to i'x-edilors and postinaslerK. (!an it be thal all the bright arruy of talent from other OCCUpationi has become interestcd in agrioultnre? Orilthildn time in an oll year favorable for ditch digging and pipe laying for tbe nazt year'i campaign. Somkiiow there seemed lo be a brcath of poiuics on tbe gaie, eepeotally state politioi. Among the wire-workers, some who have been high in ollice, are prophesying an en tirely new state tioket next year, and good men are named for aii the plaoee axoepl lieutenant-governor, Nobody teemi to have voluntaerea for that ottoe.

Tt is deemed best to issue from this ollice this statement, in answer to the many let ters of Inquiry relattve to the nnoceupled landl in vermont, The letter to the town listers, under date of August 5th, ndating to this subject, seemed to excite much in terest through this and neighboring states, and the couiinissioner sees no better way to answer the numerous impiiries for informa tlon than to QUOte some of the communica tloni reoelved from town listers, and other prominent men who have made the subject a Itttdy, and whoee opinions OUght to have muoh weight, A letter from the town of Reading, Windsor couuty, says: "I can safely say that four thousand acres oau be purcliased in lliis town alone, adjoining, and of this amount about onc-hulf are in farms of from seventy to two hundred acres, and several with bulldinga, many of them ocoupied, whiofa could be boughf for from ?:t to ?4 per aore, The remaining one-half are lands whlofa formerly oompriaed good farms, but with bulldingfl now gone, and fail growing up to tlmber, Bome of thii land is uied for tiasturage and on other portions the fenees are not kept np, leaving old eellar holcs and milea of Btone wallfl to teetify to former oiv ilization. Such lands can be purcliased from $1 to ?'J per aore." For fiirther infor mation write to E. W. Goddard, listcr, South Reading, Vt. From Chelsea, the county seat of Orange connty, a gentleman wriles: "I know of some farms that can be boUght at from to S,ri per BOre, and rumor tells me of one farm of two hundred acres which can be boUght for 1100, with fair buildingl and ' good soil 1 ' grass lodged.' I, as admiuis trator, have just sold one farm of elgbty acres, good land and passable blllldlngl, for S260; another farm of threc hundred acres good soil and good Imihlings for 01,100, Beoauee there were no buyers to pay more." Other information will be given (no doubt) by addreaaing BS, N'. Bacon, Cbeliea, From Vershire, in the same county , comes the following information: " I will say that in the south part of our town, and in the town of Strafford and Chelsea, there are from thirty-live forly farms, contiguous or nearly so, ahaudoned and unoconpied, Many of tbese farms have a fair set of build ings on them, and others could be made oomfortahie with a emall outlay. As to the prioe of these lands or farms, I think, with out doubt, they could be bought of the dif- ferent ownera for a snm not to exoeed ,?r. per acre in any case, and at considerably less for most of the land. We have many other ahandoned farms, in dilTerent parts of our town, with good buildingl on them, that COUld be bought for gR or less per aere. All of this land was once ocoupied by thrifty and proaperoui farmers. The cauae of this stale of things is simply Ihis: Of the people who once OOOUpied thcse farms, aome bave dled, others have gone West and to the cities, and in'in came to till their placea." Tlie reader is referred to E. Ii. Filller, town olerk, Vershire, for turther parl lcnlara. A gentleman in Jamaica, Windham county, has oompiled a list and deeoription of farms in that town, from which are taketi the follow ing exatnples: " (1) a farm of two hundred acres, fair huihlings, good BUgar orchard, plenty of wood and Umber, has been one of the best in town. Ilsted at f.SlO: t") afarm of one hundred thirty five acres, g I buildingl, sugar orchard, fruit orcb- ards. in good state of OUltivation, listcd at 9700: (3) another of ninety acres with good huihlings, vaoant only one year, timber enough on Ihis farm to pay for it : (4) twcnty tWO acres listcd at SlBS, with good build ingl, vaoanl one year; (5) ulnety-seven acres, good buildingS, sugar iiinl fruit orchartls, listed at .7io a good farm: (I!) ninety acres lilted at gtOB a good farm in a high state of CUltlvatlon and muit he sold: (7) one bundred Afty-flve aorea the Bnest looation in town has got to be sold." For further partloulara write to f. L. Bpragne, Jamaica. A gentleman in Ksscx county writcs: " In the town of Norton are 30,000 acres of good farming land. and once stauding ou a con- aideraole portion was spruce and bard wood timber, now taken ofl. This land is lalllng loi per acrc. The soil is bluo c lay not aandy some parts are itony, but tbc atonea are small and easily removed. I liavehcard differenl men say that there is no better land for farming in the state." Magnui K. N'elson of Norton Mills will give further information. The Kim ('"'intii GTeraM, Island Pond, says: "There are in this county three un orga leed tOWnsbins and three large gores of land, in which there are probably all told not more than tifteen or twenty famllies, They are: Averill, containing J'.'.THi acres: Ferdinand, 'JT.l'.M: i.ewis, 21,900: Avery s Gore, lO.liL'.'i: Warner's Gore, ,'),li!Ni; War ner's Grant, 'J.IKKI.

A town lister from Newark, Caledonia county. says: " There is in this town as good land as there is in the OOUUty, It is silu atediuthe center of the town, six miles from Umi raUroad, There is another traol of land only ihree miles from the railroad, tweuly-live farins. wliich can be bought for from ?:i lo 81 per ai-re." If further Information la deeired, addrees 0, M. Bruoe, Newark. There is no ollicial information relating lo lands iti some sectlous, where unoccupied, und so-calleil ubaudoned lamls are knowu ti be located. For iustance, the OOmmiS- aioner, on a risit to towu in Windham OOUnty found that in the town of Wilming ton, over .1,000 acre were available for OO- oupanoy by those desiring them. Some of tbc (armi are c. ntrally Located, with habil able buildings. Further infonnution may i btained by addressing Hosea Mnnn,Jri Wiliuiugtoii, Vt. From the toregplngi there appeanto he UO doubt about there being, in Ihis State, large tracts of tillable, unoccupied lands, Whloh can bc bought al a prioe approxi- mating the prioe f weetern lands, situated near BOhool uml oburob and not far uway from railroad fscllitlos, The oommls- aioner has not risited all of the oountiea in the state, where these lamls are reported, but bl has vislted enough lo salisfy blffl thal while much of the unoccupied und for merly cultivated land is now practicully wortbleiH for cultivation, yet very much of it can be mude to yiehl a liheral reward to iutelligent labor. A good portloo of tbese lands la espocially ailapted to dairy pur poses. It, Is hopeil that the Informntion as to the quallty and prlce of the lands of Vermont will attract to our state lillers of the aoil, hoth native and forelgn-born, who will be come good citiens of our common wealth, and the cominissloner will glaillv give all the Information pOBafbie, though informa tion in detail can lie best obtalned by writ ing to tbe geiilletnen whose naines and resideni es are Indicatcd above, A.

A Periinrni fnqnlry, Apropos of " Farmer's " statement of aome ofthe faota about the late dairy oon- ference at Burlington, we publish t iio fol lowing: " Ab things are now'llxed' the tmateea of the agrii'iiltural oollege have everything their own way, and all the agrl i iillnral roads in the state are made to lcad to the Oollege CempUBi To a plaiti old farmer It seems strange that the ' powers that be 1 Hhouhl lix the meeting on colb-ge hill and expect farmers who attend the fair during the day lo walk two miles after Hi ven or eight o'clock to attend a meeting of any kind, xbe aeleotlon ofthe plaoefor hohling the conferetice is in direct line with the pollcy adopted in piircdiasiug the slate experiment station farm.

We were the first in New Etlgland to adopt this method we believe, and it has been our aim to tell you of what we had with tlie strictest fidelity. We are a Dry Goods House and nothing else. Our first sign bore the lejcnd in 1830, "Dry Goods and Carpets." That was the work we started out in life to do, and to it we have devoted our energies through all the years since. It is " Dry Goods and Car pets " to-day, but how vast the change can only be realized by those of us who have been through all the immense efforts that have resulted in one of the largest and best equipped es tablishments devoted to Legiti male Dry Goods in New England. Long before we began our weekly letters to you we had our nicely arranged Mail Order Business that kept us in more or lessconstant communication with our friends at a distance. Since the weekly letters be came welcome to you, you have found it altogether convenient to write us very freely, not alone for what you found written. but you also found it pleasant to write us for any new want that mightcomeupin your dailylife. W ith the enlargement of our store we made; ample pmvision for the reception aml )roper handling of the largest possible business that might come to us through the mails. This special department is under the same chief that has given you such perfect satisfac tion for so many years. W ith him an- associated lady ex perts in all that goes to supply a lady's wants in this direction. The purpose is to make this Mail Order Department wholly independent of all salesmen. All orders by mail are filed in regular order. They are closely examined, so as to get as near the actual wishes oi the lady as possible; and in due course go into the hands ofthe buyer, who selects with the most exacting care in accordance with your supposed wishes.
