Radical Hatred of the President.
At no tinio during the administration
of President Lincoln did party spirit and
ill fueling towards him run as high, or
was cirricd out with such bitter & ungen
erous outburst. of wrath, as is now hurled
t President Johnson by the present Rad
ical party. Words can scarcely be found
odious enough for them to utter. The!
hatred of him sccnu o have taki n poss
ession of them even to madness and loyal
as the party professes to be, no ouc who
docs not agree with them, in their polit
ical schemes, is scarcely fit to lire.
Tho time is fast approaching when tho
Radical party with its odious principles
now advocated, will be swept away the
people are awakening to the true state of
affairs yea, light is dawning in tho East
and the political sky is assuming a bright
and brilliant future. Let all who arc
for the old TJnion and the Constitution as
it is, keep their eye on the polar star that
leads to vietory and the tyranical oaths
that now choke tho popular sentiments
of this State will be abolished, and t he
people will shortly exercise the right
guaranteed to all by the U. S. Constitu
tion tho right to vote.
The time is coming, and when it docs
come, and every white man who is entitled
to exercise that right, the putrid carcasses
of dead drakes will be sunk so deep in
the bottomlcs pit, that tho sound of Ga
briel's trumpet will never reach them.
Tke Facts of History.
In the Washington correspondence of
the Cincinnati Commercial wo find the
following as a specimen of Ben. Wade's
private talk with the President. Wade,
in giving an account of an interview he
had with the President, soon after his in
"Before I left him, I told bim to be
warned by the fate of Fillmore and Tyler,
who had come to the Presidency very
much as he had. Said I: 'There never
was a man in your position made Presi
dent by tno death ot another, that the
men who voted against him didn't try to
get hold of him; and whenever they've
sold out, they've damned themselves eter
nally." What a terrible fate was that of Tyler
and Filluioro which Wade held up to An
drew Johnson. Both Tyler find Fillmore
carried all their measures of administra
tion. Both broko down the party oppa
sedto them. The administrations of hot!
were sustained by the people. Both have
honorable names in history. That is
what Wado calls "damning them
selves eternally." It was the opponents
of Tyler and Fillmocr who were damned.
Jjet the radicals put this in their pipe
and smoke it.
M&. The editor of a Radical German
paper, uses the following language about
the President. Such intense loyal feel
ing ought to make the editor feel happy.
"The President has to he indicted and
rt moved from his office. This is the only
correct way. But we, unfortunately,
have little confidence in the determina
tion of Congress, and our consolation sole
ly consists in the certitude that President
Johnson will show himself just as weak
ami miserable as he is a dcpiuvcd wretch.

Cows are scarce, milk and butter are at
high rates, and tho farmer will find it
prontabio to raiso every heiter calf that
comes of a good milker. We were fool
ish enough to give a calf to a neighbor
two years ago, as wo did not care to be
troubled with it. That calf at twenty
months old was sold for $40. To raise
it had cost nothing but a small quantity
of corn-meal, with skim milk, buttermilk,
grass, and nothing but straw during the
winter.. When thero is plenty of pasture
room, and a small lot is fenced off near the
house on purposo for calves, tho trouble
and expense of raising them in sight.
They need not take anything from the
value of the milk except so far as it would
produco pork if fed to hogs. Calves ta
ken from the cow at two days old, will
readily learn to drink buttermilk gruel,
and, indeed, almost anything. Thero is
no danger ot lecding corn-meal provided
it be not overdone, and should any diffi
culty arise during the early life of the
calf, it can be readily corrected by a meal
or two of new milk. Raise your good
heifers calves by all means.
