A few months ago the Administration press were anxious to impress upon the far mers that, whatever else they might do, they mast never go ;iuto politics. Tho fanners have not seen fit to follow this disinterested advice. Now the game newspapers insist that, if the far mers are determined to go into politics, the Republican party is tho only fl a fe puuuL-8 iur uie.u. xtui-uuuwvu, i t riv., t ...... .v.i:.. cartv. it has suddenlv been discovered. I i - ---- - rf is'a sort of patent medicine which has peculiar virture for treating the anti monopoly complaint, as well as ali the other public diseases except possibly salary-grabs. Like one of Mr.'Ilelm hold's decoctions, it only needs liberal advertising to work miraculous cures iu all the ailments from which the body politicnow suffers, or pver shall Le likely to suffer. The average "pull' ' uf this celebrated panacea may be well illustrated ' by the following from the St. Louis Globe, whie't leaves the marks of having been writteu under the patriotic associations of tho Fourth of July: The retirement of th Republican party is impossible, a historic necessi ty will compel this nation, in it sult preservutiou, to see that its vu-sf powers and interests are ooulHed to none hut Republican hands until there are no other than KepuhUean han is .ee.mg j them. Tha progress of events will letter this truth in pillars of fire on the ; skies, and every rolnieal movenu nt j standinj: in the wav of R-pubhcan w- ! cendency will Continue to be swept aside. It is, therefore, both needless and suicidal for the agricultural clashes to pursue their aims iu hostility to the Republican party, which is in essential sympathy with them. . t , at the ; tt j n the From this it would appear that Republican mrtv is vcrv much condition of Teutons brook, an d j fiat, while farmers may come and far- . r w. mers may go, ice go on torevcr. e t . .1 ! are akcd to teheve tbat. the party i - , . f . - , , . r I which proposes to run den.

It is ' a historic necessi- iv, ana, as 1: trie uiero iaet eiu nui . 1 . a-nrtlln. enough, it has been lettered -in pillars of fire on thekies." Tho.e who hope to attain a mansion in ; , .1 ethereal ralms, then, must go th: route. It is the only roa f which pocs through without change of cars. If the f,rm noe& to be saved, thev mu.t patronize this concern. Tho fact is, that the farmers rcco nizc an issue of more importance to them and to the country than the fight over tho dead corpse of slavery. Asa class, they acted with the Republican party while it was engaged iu working out the destiny for which it was created. Now that tho destiny has been fulfilled, it will be a difficult matter to persuado the farmers that tho party Js more of a necessity to them than tho straight forward attainment of their rights. They can recognize nothing in the party as it stands except an organiza tion for'ret lining one set of oTico-holders in power, with whom they have no more sympathy per se than they would have with another set. It is a very cheerful view of the situation for Re publican politicians to regard their party as a permanent abidingplace; but nobody else has any particular interest in it. Tho farmers of the Northwest will scarcely care to voto the Republi can ticket for tho purpose of maintain ing Kellogg in power in Louisiana when com is only worth 20 cents a bushel. If they voto for Goy. Carpcner in Iowa, it will be on account of some other in centive than tho abstract good of tho party, or any faith in ollico-holderd of tho Rankin description. Salary-grabb ing is not likely to attract increased loyalty to a party that has no more j practical claim to existence than that of"histor:c necessity." Credit Mibilxr operations have been brought w tVn the comprehension of the community j of farmers since they have studied the efTect of watered and fictitious stock, 1 and trace most of tho railroad abuses of the day to the Credit Mobilier system of construction. Monopoly is not cal culated to find futther forbearanco at the hands of the farmeis, whether it i f . . ,.i . -r i coma in uic snnno oi cstc;u ramuau . .. . .n ., charges, or tbe protective larin waicn f aUurus tne oniy cxeuse ior .mem. ... wo have properly studied the farmers movement, it does not care a fig for the Republican party, or tho Djuueratio party, or any other party. It is a move ment against frauds, shams, oppressions of all kinds, and it looks to their re form whether existing parties stand or fall. Credit Mobiliers, salary grabs, unerj'ial taxation, laud-steals, prjtec tion of cUs, all fall under their cop- demnation along-with railroad monopo- j iiata art thnv riPfVMn7.. them all as i belonging to one and the game category of sins against the people, which the people alone can wipo out' by taking politics iuto their own hands.

Tho ship is confined to one ftratum of the atmosphere, where may prevail a terrifij torn id . in which nothing will live, while the biloon may rie or fall out of dinner when navigators of experience control her. A well construccd balloon will be as safe as either the ship or steamer. There is no more danger of the collapse of a balloon than of a ship springing a leak or a steam boiler exploding ; bo sides, the balloon may be devided into cornoartmcnt of air chambers to in sure greater safety. I remember read ing a year or two since an article, written, I think, by Chancellor Livingstone in 1812, io reference to the feasibility of steam carriage by rail, in ' which the Chancellor ridicules the ideas as pre posterous, and states why the project will not succeed. His reasons why are very laughable to us now, who sec their fallacy. All inventions of valuo to the world spring not forth as Minervas, but have their babyhood, youth, and man hood.

E. C. A IMXKKUir WOULD. Some English statistician has been computing too public debts of the natioas of tho world. He puts France at the head of tho list with a burden of $5,000,000,000 ; the sad legacy of the German conflict. Great Britain follows with 83,750,000,000, and the United States comes third with a debt of over 82,000,000,000, The aggre gate public debts of all the Qovero ments of the world, amount to the enormous sum of 820,000,000,000, a figure so aast as to be almost incom prehensiblc. If a mao were to coun t it as rapidly as ho could handle it d dlar by dollar, ho would not finish the task in fifteen centuries. When we come to add to this tho debts of States provinces, municipalities, villages. , corporations, and individuals, wo have a mountain of indebtedness perfeotly appalling. And the worst of it is that though nations and individuals aro bankrupt, they aro goining on piling up more liabilities year after year. Wealth, which is tho product of labor, ia completely outstripod in tha race. Some day this enormous burble must burst. Then comes tho deluge. IkalVt College Journal. "Rub is your sister at homo?"
