Mr. Tanner lias neither been removed, nor has ho re signed, But one Both of those the other may yet occur, as the relations between the 8'oeretary and the Commissioner arc decidedly strained. The day after Tanner's return from his western trip lie received a summons from Secre tary Noble to come at once to his private office, Arrived there lie found Assistant Secretary Bussey, who has charge of the appeals from the.penslon office and who is in sym pathy with the Commissioners ideas, and Secretary Noble. An animated discussion was at once begun with Tanner and Bussey on one side, and Noble on tlie other. It is said that the Hecretary gave tbem both to understand itg tiie plainest sort of language, that they were subordi nates of His. The Secretary has serious objection to anything that Tanner bas done, but he objects to Tanner's way of doing them.

To lie a skilful workman should he the ainliition of thu former as well ns the mechanic. Men of the highest attainment«, lu every railing, are al ways in theascendeuey. Bui how is it with the farmer in general'.' An idea here seems to prevail, ami with some degree of accuracy, too, that with the farmer it is a matter of "luck," that the successful ones are those that are »0 fo-tuuate u» to in herit or marry into a good farm, or are born w ith the proverbial "silver spoon in the mouth" lu some other way. The reason why I say that the matter of luck seems to influence farmers more than other men, is that thuj evidently have less apprecia tion for the force aud ulilily of brains orskiifu! attainments. Hut tu look at tlie mattei in Its true light, v. eoai see that the advantages of ndencr, skill and a high degree of lug m ii equally as potent, uecessary, and valuable with farmers as with any class of men. It is peculiar to some men to espe cially excel In one branch, while with others their talents are of the opposite order, inclining towards a versatility of attainments. Among the latter class we should look for the best farmers. It is 001 sufficient that a man should know how to I manage a fractious horse, drive a four-horse team, plough furrow, or eveu raise a good crop of grain under favorable circumstances, but It is equally as much in his line, aud to his credit, to he an adept al some veterinary work, do a little doctoring upou occasion, to pickle a barrel of good meat, to make a batch ' t sourkraut, trim a fruit tree, set a lien or some cabbage-plants, thin n bed of radishes, ami do a score more of useful things. And yet I think I am safe in s ty ing not one farmer in flfty will go iu to a garden and properly set a plant or use a hoe or rake. And it wont take long to tell whers theirmistakee are. In setting plants the custom is to press the dirt on iop instead of on tlie roots ami leaving tho soil loose top. And in hoeing tlie invari able practice is 10 hack the ground aud hill up everything instead of us ing a shuttling motion to loosen tiie soil aml'hill uponly what needs it. I have had hands actually getquar reisomo and refuse to obey orders when I would tell them to "not hill up those plants." To be a "jack-of. all-trades" is sometimes not credit aide; but with a farmer he needs to bu a jack-of-many-trades, and the better the jack the more credit,—Ger m&uiowu Telegraph. so re as to y , ; straight tbe Hon.
