Notwithstanding the many perplexities and un
welcome privatatious incident to the life of an Ed
itor, there are many things connected with his la
bors that caa and do afford lam feelings of gratifi
cation and pride. The continued sociable and
agreeable intercourse with good nd worthy co
laborers in his work, and the frequent commenda
tions of patrons and readers, are in themselves, suf
ficient to overbalance the sneers and frowns of po
litical and other enemies. There are many rensi
tive, morose and hot headed creatures, however
although they mayposscss the gift of a continual and
tireless scribbler who work themselves into an
unholy excitement and constant fever, and when
they have brains at all they are oftn misapplied in
consequence of a peevish and petulalit disposition
to wreak their vengeance in some quarter or other
In a controversy with a jolitical orronent, they
pitch into a heated passion, or flounder about like
an ignorant and inexperienced coxcomb in places o f
authority and responsibility, and whether those
with whom they come in contact are highminded
and honorable, or are weak and contemptible, it is
all the same, and instead of confining themselves
toquestioiu they are discussing they are engulphed
in the filth of low and vulgar vituperation and abuse
of the personal reputations of their Opponent..
This is a peculiar characterise ol some political
combatants, especially when they discover their in
ability to successfully meet their antagonists, and
in Editors, a co"arse of this kind is more tobe depre
catcd than in any other class of public men, a3 their
various '.reduction are subject of public scrutiny
from day to day, and from yoarsend to years end
either for g jod or evil consequences, yet some men
hav2 grown grey in such base uses, and frequently
render themselves so odious as to totally unfit them
to even occupy places of respectability in any soci
ety much less to cater for the public eye and public
tastes of all classes of commuiitv old and voung,
high and low.
To pander to personal prejudices, low and con
temptible billingsgate and obscenity for arguments,
net only show incontrovertible proofs of a lack of
more formidable and efiectire weapons,but evinces
low and loathsome ambition, and a total wantof that
courtesy which should characterize every author and
writer for the public eye, and especially the con
ductor of a public Journal, eis before the pub
ic when closeted in his secret devotions,(if Editors
ever are thus engaged.) He is be fere the public
when closely housed within his own domestic circle
and calmly ruminating over the past or the future
Jeisheld up to public gaze though he be comfort
ably slumbering upon his couch at night, and befove
the morning meal, he is often occupying the public
mind with his dish prepared for the occasion, the
evening before, lle'u before the public wheler
at home or abroad in the country hamlet or in the
oityfulL Everywhere and at most times, the
writings and sayings of the Editor are subject to
the scrutinizing eye of the public. He is consulted
upon political topics, the war troubles, the dangers
that threaten and the difficulties that arc p:st. If
his publications is not in the band and under the
immediate observation ofits patron and owner, it
is in tha posession of some one who has the loan of
it; and if the publisher who issues his thou3onds dai
ly, and the tens of thousands, weekly, could know
precisely how many readers each issue had visited
annually, he would doubtless fall short of figures
with which to number them.
How essential it is, then, that the conductor of a
public Jounnal should aim at something coble hon
orable and instructive in his caterings for the pub
lic taste. A full consciousness of having done so
whether he has accomplished all his purposes or
failed in most of them affords him pleasures that
are of no small meaning to tim. But what a mis
erable life the snarling, snapping and bussing reptile
of an Editor, must lead not only in the public esti
mation, but in his own, His fault is a cankering
poison in his inmost soul, felt even in his dream?.
That there are Editors occupying wcrse than va
cant sanctun. s, none wi.l pretend to deny, and pity it
is that any portion of community should contenance
them to any extent. When parents do it they rep
the evil consequences; when professing christians
do it, they bring reproach upon the cause they have
espoused. Such Editors, instead of laboring to ea
lighten the public mind, and to ameliorate the con
dition of the community in which they are permit
ted to live; by sound and convincing arguments
maliciously grapnthe helm of that mighty engine
the Press to gratify some personal pique or petty
and loathsome ambition, and aim a fiendish stab at
private character, under the delusive pretence that
it istall right as aa argument in sustaining their cause
and with a vain show of. independence, which, in
reality, is the legitimate offspring of an unpardon
able Ignorant impuJenee tbey cut 'fore and aft
with a blinded zeal and a reckless fanaticism, wor
thy only of dupes aud hirelings of the quill. They
totally disregard the charity of even al lowing oth
ers to be their own judges of right and wrong; and
untill the press itself makes the beld and deter
mined effort to remedy its own evils, they will con
tinue to hang about it as a burr Ing and a blighting
curse, up to the dying momerts of the last oae of
the fraternity. Daily Ft Wayne Republican.

The criminals were brought in gangs, i(
they were able to walk, or if they, could
not walk; in chairs'; And baskets, in which
usually iios aro carrjed, tho basket being
attached to two poles, and thus carried on
tho shoulders of two men. "When the cul
prits reached the exeMition ground they
were tumbled out of ihir chairs and bas
kets down upon tho -pavement with as lit
tle caV and sympathy as though they had
been loads of pumpkins or potatoes. The
executioners then arraf.ged them in rows,
three usually, when there wa's alarge.num
ber to be dispatched,' as my friend inform
ed me, one executioner taking his place at
the head of eah row, and giving each vic
tim a blow on the back side of the head to
push it forvard and lay it convenient for
tho sword, as all knelt and awaited the fa
tal moment.
When all these thin '3 were thus arrang-
ed the death warrant came; it was a ban
ner, and as soon as it came in sight, with
out any verbal order being given, the
headsmen bean their work of death.
There was a rapid succession of dull,
crunching sounds chep, chop, chop, and
down dropped tho heads, while the bodies
fell forward and streams of blood.were shot
into the air like jets of water from a fire
engine. The frit nd who was my guide,
as we stood ou the very pavement by the
wall on one side of the street where these
rows of victims were drawn up, told me
he had been obliged as others also had bepn
to ?up back of these wretched kneeling
men when the work commenced, lest the
blood, if they were in front, should stream
across the street and fall upon them. No
second blow was ever ofiVcQ fr these dex
trous men are slayers, educated for their
work; for until they are able, with their
heavy swoids, which are in part butchers
elevers as well as swords, to slice a great
bulbvs vegetable as thin as we slice cu
cumbers, thev are not eligible to the of
ßce. Three seconds are sufficient for. each
head. In one minute five executioners
clear off one hundred heads. It took ra
ther longer for the assistants to pick up the
heads and bodies and pack them in rough
coffins preparatory to their being carried
away into the fields a;:d hills outside the
wails for interment. ?ur were the' at nil
careful that the old companionship of head
and body should bo continued, but they
often thrust a head and body., in a coffin
which had never mot before. As. hun
dreds were sometimes executed at a time
occasionally coming up to five - hundred,
while these scenes were of constant occur
rence, the whole area swam in blood if
not to the horses' -brMLs, yet almost ovr
the shoes and up to the ancles. The earth

Ait Honest Opinion.
It is to be remembered that the black re
publicans of Ohio have placed themselves
iu active hostility to the fugiiive fi!ae Uw
and have, moreover, commenced the work
of proscribing judges who decide in fa
vor of its constitutionality. It will not be
long before we see those in other Stales
following ih-ir example, and taking active
measures against the law first sanctioned
by üecrge Washington, and pronounced
constitutional by John Jay and John Mar
shall, and again re affirmed by Henry
Clay and Daniel Webster. The black re
publicans demand the repeal or the nulli
fication of this law. Since th party now
occupy this position, the following extract
from a speech by Wm. Lloyd Garrison
will be of interest. He is the most violent
of all the abolitionists, and yet he is not
only forced to admit the constitutionality
of the law, but the right and duty of Con
gress to enact' it, and these .are the vry
positions which the black republicans deny.
The extract is from a speech which he
made last winter before a committee of
the Massachusetts Legislature. Dct. Fr.
Press.
"1 cannot, gentlemen, place the same
construction upon the constitution, re
specting the rendition of fugitive slaves,
which my respected friend, Mr. Sewall,
has done. I cannot plead that it is not in
the bond to give up the fugitive slave. It
is for those who can to do so; for. my&elf
I cannot outface thij nation, and say that,
for seventy years, it lias never understood
its own constitution in this particular. 1
believe that Massachusetts consented, with
her eyes open, and for the sake of making
! a union with the South possible, to allow
the slave hunter to come here and take
his prey; and I would not spend one mo
raent in attempting to argu, on the words
of the constitution, that we have never
agreed to any such ihing. I believe that
the intent of a bargain is the bargain, what
ever may be the language used, and I
would not try to get rid of an obligation,
however unjust, by a false interpretation of
the instrument.
What a waste of time and effort it
would be to argue, from the phraseology
of that nefarious law, that it was never
designed by Congress to refer to fugitive
slaves ! Enough, that for sevonty years,
all the courts, ad the legislatures, all the
Congresses, and all the people, have un
derstood these compromises of the consti
tution in precisely the same way, and pro
nounced them obligatory. Iiis too late,
therefore, to get up a new and unwarranta
ble construction of the constitution, in or
der to justify tis in doing right and obey
ing God.' AU I have to say is, as one
holding loyalty to God tobe paramount in
all cases, I care not though every word in
the constitution .be. foe elavery, or. every
sentence an agreement on our part to stand
by it. In that case it is all null and void,
and a crime of th deepest ilye for us to
carry it out; and so I stand here on the
ground of eternal justice, and appeal to
the law of the liying God, nd ask you to
do likewise." ' .
Keep Your Temper.
- One of the" principal sources of happi
ness in thi world is that of keeping the
temper. It isälsö greatly conducive to
long lifa. Did you ever hear of a quick
tempered, passionate person, living; to be
very old? Did you ever know such a per
son that was not miserable two-thiids cf
the time? If so, he is a rare exception to
the general rule Some persons think it a
very difficult task to curb the angry pas
sions impossible, not so, nothing more
easy. The fact is. a majority of persons
have never tried. Many have said to
themselves, after having experienced the
foolishness and suffered the evil of giving
away to an outburst of ill temper a thou
sand and one times, "next time I am pro.
voked, I will try to hold in." But no soon
er was an exciting cause applied, than hab
it, all-controling babit, ruled and reign
ed, and off they went in a storm, and a
fury, end a passion, and a phrenzy which
soured them for a week, exhausted the
nervous system for a month, and threw
them into a bUious fever for at least two
days.
Now it is perfectly clear that nothing
was ever gained, or ever will be by ill tern
per. Consequently it is true that a quiet
equable tamper, a well-balanced and well
governed mind, has every advantage.
VTho, then, realizes this doctrine, would
not try, try hard, to conquer a habit of in-
J . . t " ; mi. r .
uuiLMiiir in l t-iemner lor everv limine
. J f . o
vexation, or even on any occasion whatev
er? And whoever tries is sure ,to . suc
ceed. Hereii a receipt which we think is
infallible: ;
Whenever you feel - fretted, vexd, irri
table, in ill-humor, angry, avoid ihcir ex
pression in words. This you can do; al
though you cannot prevent the leeling,
you can restrain the manifestations' in ai
ion. Y-m in keep y.tur to'igm, fists and
feet still, and neither rear, strike or stamp.
Thus avoid culiivaiing the feeling, and
soon for tvantof exeicise and cultivation,
the feeling itself will gradually decline,
aiid eventually wear out. Then you will
be as mild, pleasnnt and agreeable a per
son as ever lived, and will not find half as
many things in the world to trouble you.
Granite State Regisier
Advice to Yockg Me.t. In his va'a
dictory address, the ex Lrd Rctorof Glas
gow University, Sir E. JBulwer Lytton, late
ly offered J he following cxcelleutmaxims to
the students: ' ' '
'Never affect (he said) to b? othtr than
what you are, either rich or wise. Never
be ashamed to say 'I do not know. Men
will bfelieve you when you say, 'I do know.'
Never be ashamed to say, whether'appli-d
to time or money. 4I cannot afford it; 1 mh
not afford to waste an hour in the idleness
to which you invite me. 1 cannot afford
the guinea you ak me to throw awav.'
Once established yourself and your
mode of life as what they really are, and
your foot is on solid ground, whether for
the gradual step onward or for the sudden
spring over tho precipice. From the max
iiusletme deduce another.
'Learn to say 'No' with decision. 'Yes
with caution. 'No with derision whenev
er it meets a temptation; 'Yea with cau
tion whenever implies a promise A prom
ise given is a bond inviolable. A m in is al
ready of consequence in ihe woild when
it is known that we can implicitly ielv on
him. I have frequently seen such a man
preferred to a long list of applicants for
some important charge; he ha3 been lifted
at once into station and fortune, merely be
cause he had this reputation that when
he says he knows a thing, he knows; and
when he 6ays he will do a thing, he will
doit."

heard of the horse that bit the steamboat.

of the same perplexing character, before

property. That being indisputably so, ev
ery citizen of any State has a right to take
his steamboat with him upon any of the
public domain purchased by any of the
common blood and treasure of all the
States.
Now suppose somebody takes his steam,
boats with him up into the interior of Kan

men and children, to till a candle box in a

a steamboat; wher the settlers are engaged
raising cattle, hors-s, Aboli ion babies and
hell, about politics.- Suppose our man
leaves his steamboat out of dotrso' nights
and S'urii border uffi.m horse, with malic
prepense and burrs in hi tail, k'eks inio

the people of ihe "parts aforesaid don't
own steamboats, and have no local laws
requiring horses with burrs in their tails
to respect steamboat property. Must Con

Genbral Garaijaldt. General Gara-
baldi, the Italian wl o is now at the head
of the insurrection iu Austrian Lombaidy,
was born m A ice,. in 18U7, on the 4th of
July. That was a vert good day for a
revolutionist to be born on. . In his early
life he was implicated in the Savoy revo
lution and compelled to flee from the coun
try. He went to South America where
he raised an Indian legiou of eiSht bun
dred men, and, as a citizen of Monte Vie
do, he joined in war agiinst Rosas, .he
tyrant of Uuenos Avers. Iu 1848 Gari
baldi went back to Italy and enlisted under
Lhaiies Albert, King of Sardinia, whd was
then at war with Austria. That monarch
was defeated and compelled to abdicate
before Garabaldi could do anything for It
aly. He had, however, some desperate
fights with Austmns. He was prominent
ly connected with the formation of the
Republic at Rome, when the Pope . fled
from that city in 1848. He ws one of
its most gallant defenders against the
French when they took it and placed the
Pontiff on the throne in 1849. After the
failure of the Roman Republic, he tied to
Sardinia, where he was taken and impris
oned for some time. Permission was final
ly given him to emigrate to the United
States. He came here and remained until
1854. Such is tho man bold and enter
prising who at the last accounts had un
furled the flag of rebellion in Austrian

"It will be remembered that last Feb
ruary we published'an account of burning
ot two houses of prostitution i:i Oshkosh,
by the indignant citizens, and the convey
ing of the inmates, twelve girls and a man,
to jail. The houses were burned to the
ground, and the clothing, trunks and. jew
elry belonging to the inmates were also de
btroyed. As before stated by us, the girls
wera liberated after tho trial The next
move was a convention of thi class of
artists,' which convention was attended
by protimtes and tl eir pimps from neigh
boring cities and' villages. At this con
vention, ii is said, a solemn oath was ta
ken to bum the ciiy from end to end, be
fore the summer was over, in revenge for
the burning of the two houses afore men
tioned. The city is now in ashes, evident
ly fired by an incendiary, but who the in
cendiary is we cannot yet tell. Ihere is

Cutting ami Curing Clover.
. 4 Fw crops sailer greater injury
from imsnianagement, thnn clover
hay. In favorable weather, clover
may be cut and cured and-rexidor-ed
as bright in color, and as pala
table to any kind of stock aa the
best of timothy" hay; iadeed, we
would preler well cured clover to
timothy. It' contains 1.15 per ct.
of good sugar when handled prop
erly. 1 lie percentage of sugar is
greatest just when full v in bios-
som; but it is best to let it stand
until a portion of the heads are al
most matured, as it contans less
moisture, a superabundance of
which delays the curing, and ren
ders the process more uncertain.
A clear sky and . dry atmosphere
are important in making clover
hay. If the mowing be commenc
ed in the morning, that which is
first cut should be placed in small
cocks of fifty or seventy five pounds
each before night, and" that which
is cut in the afternoon should be
put up next day as soon as the
dew is off. Let it remain this way
a day or two, according to the
weather, and the day it is to be
hauled in. the cocks should be
turned over and opened, until all
the external moisture is carried
away.
;To make bright, sweet hay, the
mode of stacking is important.
Some means of ventilation must
be employed, whether in the barn
or stack. If-excessive fermenta
tion is allowed to take place, por
tions of the most nutritive proper
ties of the hay will be lost. A
slight sprinkling of salt should be
added to' each layer of hay as it
is hauled in, as itwill tend to ar
rest fermentation, and render the
hay more palatable.
Agriculture s a profession
does mt sparkle with glittering
inducements of wealth and fame
and glory. AVe are glad it does
not. True, men become wealthy,
and are noted,-who are fanners,
and their wealth, is substantial and
their tame is lasting. But specu
lative adventurers do not belong
to the farmer's legitimate sphere;
neither is his prosperity due to
such ventures, or subject to be af
fected by disasters which often
flow from them. We thank God
that all men do not dig for gold
do not wreck health and destroy
the best years of life in pursuit of
pelf that this is not the result of
the farmer s occupation. We . be
lieve the wealth of the agricultur
ist to be, and will consist, more in
the possession, within himself, of
the essential means of a comforta
ble subsistence, than ia the power
of accumulating fortunes such as
are often acquired by men in other
pursuits, and we believe also that
as a consequence of this feature' of
rural life, we shall ever hereafter
hnd more general intelligence and
a better distribution1 of it among
farmers than among any other
class. -Farmer,
All animals working at the plow'
or other frirm work need extra
feed and care at this season. It is
much cheaper tafeed a little extra
and have the' auimal enabled to
work vigorously ami steadily, than
to starve, and have the animal
wincing ::nd t wi-ting and lagging
at its work. It costs less to'keep
flesh when once on an animal than
to put it on again if worked and
starved oh. reed and carefully
attend your working animals,-
if
you choose to make money or re
tain any credit lor judicious man
aerement.
