x nat this is nut the easiest county in,
the States for farmers, is a fact not to be
5 disguised. But it is also a fact, that this
county possesses advantages which are
not yet fully appreciated. We think it
is now pretty generally conceded, thai
every person who b?r a home here, would
Jo wed to rcta'Ti it— that it will not pay
[ to sell cuA and go West. This being con-'
i cod' 1, it is our duty to devote ourselves
'' io the improvement and development of
hour adopted homes. ;
i The Educational movement id so well
- under way, that we trust it will go on
i prosperously and triumphantly. But this
. can only be done by the action of the peo
. iple themselves. Let them take an in
terest in the election of the best men for
, School Directors, and cooperate with them :
, —the Teachers and the County Superin
, tendont; and the Eedueational improve-;
incuts of the county, will soon be as con
spicuous and as fortunate, as our Tem
-1 peranee reform.
What the county most needs at this
- time, is a better system of husbanding her
' resources, and improving her advantages.;
- T-'O much money is spent out of the
■ county, fur what might be produced in
' it. and too little is accomplished, with the
' money brought in and used here.
Thousands of dollars are every year sent
out fur provisions, that might be raised
here. Beef and mutton can be raised in
this county as easily as in any part of the
United States, in this latitude, and they
arc mora healthy than pork. Why them
should our bard earnings go in thousands
to the west to pay for that greasy billions
article of food, that is, to say the least of
, it, not a necessity to any lxody. Let
(every farmer raise his own meat and a
I little to sell, and see how quick an im
provement will be made in the prosperi
ty uf the county.
We think we note a favorable feeling
on this subject already, and we desire tuj
j strengthen the feeling tenfold. Sheep 1
will gruvy fat on briers and patches of
grass that would be worthless without
them, and every farmer in the county'
who has not a small flock, is suffering a
loss which he ought to stop at once.
Ihe present fail should bo a lesson to!
be improved. It has been very unfavor- <
able for securing crops and doing ordinary
fall work, but it lias been highly favorable
for fattening sheep and cattle, In fget
they have almost fatted themselves. Thus .
tire farmers who had them, saw his work
going on during all those rainy unpleasant '
I days.
j As this is the time to review the work
lof the season, to see what bus been ac
complished, and what may be accomplish- i
ed next year, we shall renew the subject
! as we find leisure for writing.

trol of the northern Methodists. Of

gogue* a line ehance to get up a big
howl about aliolifionisuq and to persecute
a Protestant church. Jim Green, the
agitator, delivered a spluttering nigger

Wo ask ail persons who read the hand
bill fur the Buchanan mass meeting at
this place, and who remember the appeals
made to Free Kan-as democrats to vot o
fur the Cincinnati platfortu, to digest the
'significance of the lowing Telegraphic 1
uisputeh 1° thiQ .17 Tribune :
Washington. Tuesday, Dec. 1, 1 s'f>7.
, At the Cabinet meeting to-day the Kan
'sas question was discussed. A number
of leading Southern Democrats have ar
rived wit Liu a day or two, and thrir in
fluence upon the counsels of the Admin
istration is always very manifest. The
Lecoinpton Constitution is to be lbrced
upon Kansas if it can be got through Con
i gross by the most stringent party drill.
The H'.uth insists upon it, and the Ad
miuistratiun acquiesces. Personal as well
as party considerations have tended to
produce this decision. It is'consiJered
: a good opportunity to check the aspira
tions of Governor Walker and Senator
Douglas, and to purify the narty from the
remnants of Free-State sentiments. Gov
-1 crnor Walker, if not removed, will have
a policy in Kansas prescribed to him
' which he cannot follow, and which will
compel his resignation.
" The South insists upon it, and tijir'
Administration acquiesces," and thus it
has been ever since the election of James
K. Polk. Whatever the Slave Power de
manded, the admin! ffralion granted.
I'uder the Leeompton programme, the
people of Kansas are no l allowed a single
word upon the general spirit or the par
ticular d' tails of their Slate Co verm nt.
J.V regards tf>e ho-1g of the Constitution
the people of J\ ins'ts are not alio iced (fa-
S aflernalict of adopting or rejecting it.
And )et James Buchanan, the idol oi'tuc;
Pennsylvania professing democrats, in the
face of his oft repeated declaration that
the people of Kansas, should have a fair
chance to form their own Constitution in
their own way, now accepts this Leoonip
ton fraud berausc the South insists upon
it. What does he earc fur the people of
the North. Have ti.ey not submitted for
years to the rule of the South, and wiil
they not continue to submit (
Mr. Buchanan is sold, body and soul to
the slave holders, and will acquiesce in
whatever they demand.
i'hc TriitEi From an I nexyt'cteil
Tho Chicago limes, said to be the
mouthpiece of Senator Douglas, tells
more truth iu the following extract than
we ever knew Douglas to tell iu a four
hours speech. The Times is comment
ing on the exultation of the Washington
Union at the Leeompton Convention,and
thus replies, with true Anglo-Saxon
pluck :
"if the person conducting the Union
were a tune man, he would know that
Mr. Buchanan would never have been
['resident, nor any of his cabinet now in
office, had the Democratic party in lssb
hinted at tho possibility of the people of
Kansas being denied a vote on their con
stitution ! and yet the Washington Union.
in its issue of the 18th, 19th and 20th
lilt., can hardly find words enough to ex
press its gratification that the principle* (
ui the Democratic party have not only (
been yhaiuelully degraded but actually ,
trampled under foot iu Kansas, The
Union may exult, but the Union is not 1
the administration, and the / uion is not
the Democratic party. The Democratic
party stands pledged in every hamlet in 1
the I nited .States to secure to the people
of Kan-as the privilege of making their *
own i onstitutiou, and that pledge, though '
a I i> ion newspaper and a cabinet officer 1
stood at every cross road throughout the
land forbidding it, MI ST BE MADE HOOD." (
itirDou't forget the Agricultural Go- i
eiety'e meeting advertised eLcwh®re. jf

, We hope the people of Kansas will
tlprail themselves of ti.e opportunity of

! Just at this moment, our own, and all
'other Christian Missionaries, are in emi
nent peril in the blast indies. jhe sym
pathies of Christendom are very properly
excited by these unlocked for dangvrs.—
Cod forbid that we should not weep with:
tiio.se that weep, and be in peril with
' thosC that are in peril. Bui while ic is
•dearly our duty to be in warm sympathy
with missionaries in that di taut region,
it is no less our duty to remember the
perils of holiest men in our own count , v.
Great as are the dangers of a residence in
India at this disturbed juncture, they are
not as great as in the Southern States of
this confederacy. It i- safer to preach
tiie (lospei among tiie infuriated .S-.-puvs,
than among Southern slave-holders. No
Christian minister can safely preach a '
whole Gospel south of .Mason and Dix- ;
on's line. Christianity in its fulness i> j
more effectually excluded from the slave |
States of this nation, than from any otli- '
cr region on the globe. Lot a man preach
against the sin of slavery in tho slave
States, ami his life is at an end. .So "
deadly is the pert-couth n maintained
against this part of religion, that silence
everywhere prevails. The Gospel is (
abandoned for the sake of peace. It is |
safer to preach a whole Gospel in any
other country on the face of the earth
than in this where slavery has swav. If .
. an
India abounds with murderous heathen,
thirsting for tiie blood of Missionaries of ,
the Cross, so also do thc l nited States: •
we have them blood-stained and ferociou* -
beyond all precedent at our own doors. — .
1 nstead v therefore, of exhausting our sym- i
pat by on foreign missionaries, we must
reserve a portion of it fur the martyrs on
our own ground —for the anti-slavery
evangelists in our slave .States. — Xorth- °
