We copy from the New York " Week
ly" the following. It shows the inter
est taken by the New England States
on this important matter. The Sus
quehanna and its tributaries can fur
nish more of the finny tribe than all
the st reams of New England combined,
yet our people leave their streams year
after year to be pirated by fish bask
ets, thereby rendering nugatory the
utmost endeavors of those who are try
ing to bring back this delicious luxury
to our doors. It is to be hoped that in
the coming year all such obstructions
shall be put an end to.
A society has been formed at Green
field, Mass., to prevent the extermina
tion of trout in the neighboringstreams.
Last week a meeting was held at Bos
ton under the auspices of the Board of
Fish Commissioners to consider the
subject of the restoration and propaga
tion offish in the rivers from which
they have been excluded by dams.—
Hon. Harry Jewell, Speaker of the
Massachusetts House of Representa
tives, presided. Prof. Agassi z stated
that the subject was one whose impor
tance could not be over-estimated. It
was a matter affecting coming gener
ations, aud one which should occupy
the attention of our statesmen.
"Ifis words, he said, might seem ex
travagant, but what is now advocated
by the Fish Coi (missions stands in the !
same relation a the fir- attempts stood i
to domesticate mils a d raise cattle, j
llovv could the ; mpulat.on of thiseonti- ■
went goon if we had no artificial pro
duction of food ? Was it ever consid
ered, he asked, that the whole popula
tion of this country, without exception,
are daily fed by substances all of which
are raised artificially ? We live upon
beef or fowl, and upon vegetables and
fruit, no one kind of which is indige
nous to this continent. ' All were
brought from,the old world to be rais
ed artificially here, and more than that,
all have died out in their wild state.
What is now proposed by the commis
sioners is to add one kind of this sup
ply of food for our benefit, that man
may feed on a greater variety. Ilere
he said he touched upon a point which
was equally important. It is a varie
ty of lood taken in daily to build up
the human frame, toeultivatethe brain,
and develope the faculties, which is ad
vancing civilization. The more the
variety of food and better adapted to
these purposes, the higher our civiliza
He further asserted that the cultiva
tion offish could and should be made
as profitable as cattle, fruit, or wheat
raising, or any other "branch of agri
culture." The "time will come when
every man who has water on his ground
will raise fish for his own table, as he
now raises fruit." The general and
State governments should take hold of
this subject, and give it all the encour
agement and assistance required. The
professor also argued that sanitary rea
sons should impel us to the general cul
tivation of fish.
"If there is one thing of which the
American people have a right to com
plain, it is of the uniformity of their
diet. Men are most healthy and more
enduring in proportion as .they vary
their diet and take proper time to eat,
to chew their food. No creature in
the universe requires such a variety of
food as man. The fish enters .largely
into the requisites of thesystem. It is
a kind of food which refreshes the sys
tem, especially after intellectual fa
tigue. There is no other article of
1 food that supplies the waste of the
head so thoroughly as fish diet, and the
evidence of it is in the fact that all the
inhabitants of the sea-shore, the world
over, are the brighter population of the
' country. Fish contains phosphorus to a
large extent, a chemical element which
the brain requires for growth and
health. He would not say that an ex
clusive use of 1 sh would make a block
head a wise man, but that the brain
! should not be v anting is one of its es

BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 10. 1868.
England Commissioners of River Fish- !
eries, gave an account of the various
kinds offish which once inhabited the j
inland streams, and explained how !
they could be restored. He recommend
ed the introduction of black bass, and
exhibited the model of the "Foster
fish way" to enable fish to pass over
river dams at the season of the year
when they were formerly accustomed
to ascend from the sea in order to de
posit their spawn. Col. Lyman also
exhibited a model of the plan pursued
hv Seth Green, of Munford, New York,
for restocking * :: * lie (Mr. G.)
last year turned over fifty millions of
shad into the Connecticut River, beside
realizing $10,006 from the sale of fish
and spawn. ** ' Boston has set an
example in this matter which should
be.followed all over the country. The
fish have in late years been rapidly
disappearing from our streams before
the encroachments of civilization, and
the mill-dams and fatal tan-bark throat
en to ere long deprive us altogether of
the diet which Prof. Agassiz assures
us is so requisite for the "growth and
health of the brain." Judging from the
success which has attended Mr. Green's
endeavors, parties in this State could
raise fish with great profit for the New
York market. We hear that an enter
prise of this kind is soon to he started
in New Jersey.
"I'liL TAKE WHAT FATHER TAKEN."
"What will you taketodrink ?" Halv
ed a waiter of a young lad who, for
the first time, accompanied his father
to a public dinner. Uncertain what
to say, and feeling sure that he could j
not do wrong if he followed his father's
example, he replied, "I'll take what
The answer reached his lather's ear,
and instantly the full responsibility of
his position flashed upon him. If he,
said, "I'll take ale," as he had always
said before, his son would lake it also,
and then ? And the father shuddered,
as the history of several young men
who, once promising as his own bright
lad, had been ruined by drink, started !
up in solemn warning before him.—
Should his hopes also be blasted and j
that open faced, noble lad become a ;
burden and curse, as they had become? I
But for strong drink, they would have j

men ; and if it could work such ruin up- j
on them, was his own lad.safe? Quick-'
er than lightning these thoughts pass-1
ed through his mind, and in a moment j
the decision was made. "If the boy j
fails, he shall not have me to blame !
and then in tones tremulous with e- 1
motion, to th e astonish monto ft hose who |
knew him, he said, "Waiter, I'll take j
water;" and from that day to this,

that man's table and from that man's
That young lad, in this brief utter
ance, was really the representative of
the generation to which he belongs.—
God has so decreed it, that the father
is the highest authority in the world
to his child. Who does not know that
"My father said so," is the end of all
controversy with the little ones around
us? Who does not see the parent's
tones, and gait, and manners repro
duced continually in the children,
whose nature is now "soft as wax to
receive an impression, and rigid as
marble to retain itand who watch
with a quick and imitating eye those
who, to them, are God's vicegerents?
Would that we could impress upon
the fathers and mothers of this coun
try the solemn fact, that the future
character of the children is being form
ed by them. That if they are trained
up in the way they should go, when
they are old they will not depart from
it. But if they become vain, sensual,
and degraded, the seeds will have been
deposited and the bias given in the
early morning of their lives. If we
teach them that strong drink is a good
creature of God, they will believe us;
and when depending upon our judg
ment and truth, they shall have taken
it, and it shall have shown itself to be
the devil's master piece, and have bit
ten, and crushed, and dragged them
down to ruin, we may weep and pray
as we please—the blame will be our
own, and we must not accuse God, or

shall have sown to the flesh, and of
; the flesh have reaped corruption. God
will have visited the sins of our fath
ers upon the children. They only "took
what their fathers took." If, on the

most open to our teaching, we

taking it, has sent them into the world
with a loathing of its very taste. Our
children will believe us. They will

They will be preserved from the poi

There will be a bridgelessgnlf between
them and the companions' who are
most likely to lead them into the ways
of sin. They will be preserved from
habits of extravagance and -waste.—
They will havenocompanions but those
who walk in the ways of God ; no em

which is elevating and purifying, and
when we pass to our reward, they will
rise up and call us blessed, for they
"took what their fathers took."
ItAVr A\n THF. RADK AIA
When the Radical party deserted the
plan of restoration adopted by Presi
dents Lincoln and Johnson, and-a sep
aration ensued between Mr. Johnson
and his party, General Grant appeared
to side with the President. He stood
beside the President when the latter re
ceived and replied to the Committee j
from the Philadelphia Convention of!
August 14th, IS6G. He accompanied the
President in his memorableelcetioneer
ingtour to Chicago in the same year ;
And when the President removed Stan-j
ton, General Grant accepted the ap- i
pointment of Secretary ad interim, as
every one thought, in order to facilitate !
The testimony of General Grant be
fore the I m peach i) lent Coin mi ttee more
over indicates that he approved the
programme of Messrs. Lincoln and j
Johnson : and his celebrated report j
upon the condition of the Southern
people, made shortly after the close of
the war, exhibits a feeling of kindness
for them which is utterly irreconcilea
ble with a support of the Congressional j
scheme of destruction.
How, then, does it happen that Gen. j
Grant has deserted the President, and I
given his adhesion to the abominable 1
plan of Negro Reconstruction ? Has he
deliberately deceived the people for
three years, or has he been corrupted
by the promise of the Radical nomina
tion for the Presidency? His corres
pondence with the President about the
removal of Stanton betrays a desire to ]
create the impression that he was de
ceiving the President and people. But
in either aspect of his course, we wish
the Radicals joy of their candidate.—
If he has deliberately deceived the
American people for three long years,*!
and perfidiously betrayed them at the
end of that time, the Radicals cannot
expect him to keep better faith with
them than with others. Ifhe has been
corrupted by the promise of office, the
Radicals may reckon on his deserting
them as soon as he finds their party
losing the power to confer office.
The willingness of the Radicals to
accept a candidate of Grant's equivocal
antecedents, exhibits their fear and des
! peration. A year ago they would have
i disdained to support any less pro
! nounced candidate than Chase, Wade,
j or one of that stamp. Now, they grasp
at the candidate who promises to afford
| them support in the hour of their ex
; tremity and danger. And they do this
i in the face of their experience of An
j drew Johnson and two of his prcdeees
Rut they fatter themselves that Im
| peachment and the Tenure of Office Act
! will secure the President, whoever he
! may be. The Impeachment of Mr.
I Johnson is not only intended as apuu
i ishment for him., but as a warning to
, Grant, should he be elected. And after
Air. Wade has distributed the patronage
of the Government, the Tenure of Office
Act will prevent Grant or any one else
from disturbing his arrangements. The
new President will find it his principal
business to draw his salary, and expend
it in entertaining his constituents.
The Radicals do not want Grant its
the pilot, but as the figure-head of the
party. They propose to use him as a
decoy to catch votes. If under his name
they can pump up enthusiasm enough
to carry majorities in the Electoral Col
leges and Congress, Stevens, Sumner
and the negroes will rule the country
four years longer, and Grant will have
: their full permission to smoke and talk

SOLD.—A rich old widower in Cana
da is said to have practiced a very art
ful scheme to gain the hand of the belle
of the village. He got an old gipsy
to tell the young lady's fortune in the
words which he dictated as follows:
"My dear young lady, your star wili
soon be hid for a short time by a very
dark cloud, but when it re-appears it
will continue to shine with uninterrup
ted splendor until the end of your days.
Before one week a wealthy old widow
er, wearing a suit of black and a fine
castor hat, will pay you a visit and re
quest your hand in marriage. You
will accept his offer, become his wife,
and be left a widow, in posession of all
his property, before the close of the
year. The next husband will be the
young man of whom you think most at
Three days after, the old gentleman,
dressed in the manner described by the
gipsy, presented himself to the young
lady, and the marriage followed.—
The year is more than out, but the
tough old widower still lingers.
KEEPING UP MEADOWS. —A Wis
consin farmer was asked how he
kept up liis grass lands, selling the hay
off year by year, as he did. His reply
was, "I never allow the after-math to
be cut." To this the Wisconsin Fanner
adds: "If this rule was generally fol
lowed there would be less said about
running out of grass fields or short
crops of hay. Some farmers feed off
every green thing and compel their
cattle to pull up and gnaw off the roots
of grass. Cutting rowen is certain
death to hay crops. A farmer had
be'tor buy hay at forty dollars per ton
than ruin his hay field by close
grazing. The general treatment of
grass lands in this respect is wrong
and expensive, and should be abandon
ed as a matter of profit and economy."
—A man out West who offered bail
for a friend was asked by a Judge if
he had an incumbrance on his farm.
"Oh, yes." said he, "my old woman."

THE HIGH <(M RTOrniPKKHMF.ST.
After the usual proclamation of the
Sergeant-at-Arms, Mr. Wilson offered
further documentary evidence, among
which was a copy of Stanton's commis
sion from President Lincoln, under
which only does he claim to hold his
office. \V. J. McDonald, the Chief
Clerk of the Senate, was called and
testified to having left certified copies
of the action of the Senate on Stanton's
removal at the Executive Mansion.
Mr. John Jones testified to having de
livered similar documents to General
Thomas. E. Creecy took the stand
to testify as to the difference between
commissions issued before and after
the passage of the tenure-of-oftice act,
in order to show that the President ac
knowledged the validity of the act.
Mr. Van Horn was examined as to
what took place at the interview when
General Thomas made the formal de
mand upon Stanton for possession of
the War Office. In the cross examina
tion Mr. Stanbery brought out the
fact that the presence of Van Horn
and other Congressmen 011 that occa
sion, was preconcerted, and not acci
dental. Mr. Moore head was examined
concerning the same interview. Mr.
Burleigh was calied and examined as
to conversation between himself and
General Thomas. Mr. Stanbery object
ed to the testimony, and the objection
was sustained by the Chief Justice.
Mr. Drake appealed from the decision.
The Chief Justice ruled that he had the
right to decide legal points. Mr. But
ler combatted this view, saying that
lie did not consider the Chief Justice a
member of the Court. The Chief Jus
tice restated his position, that it was
his duty to decide upon the admissi
bility of evidence, subject to the decis
ion of the Senate. Mr. Bingham spoke
briefly in opposition to the ruling.
Boutwell also spoke. Mr. Evarts
briefly replied. The question being
put whether the Senate should retire
for consultation, the vote stood ayes
25, nays 25. The Chief Justice then
voted aye, and declared the motion
; carried. The Senate returned from
| their consultation at 6:20, and reported
a rule sustaining the Chief Justice.
The Court then adjourned.— Age.

GIVING THEDEVILHIS DUE.— There
is a point in the following anecdote :
A parson was making a call upon an
old lady, who made it an habitual rule
never to speak ill of another, and had
observed it so closely that she always
justified those whom she had heard
evil spoken of. Before the old lady
made her appearance in thQ. parlor,
one of her daughters playfully said;
"Mother has such a habit of speaking
well of everybody, tHat I do believe if
Satan himself was the subject of con
versation, mother would find out some
good quality or virtue even in him."
Of course this remark elicited consider
able smiling and merriment at the
originality of the idea, in the midst of
which the old lady entered the room,
and on being told what had just been
said, she immediately and involun
tarily replied: "Well, my children, I
wish we had Satan's industry and per
THE Cheyenne Argus says the aban
donment of the Powder river forts is a
game in which the Sioux Indians have
baffled Uncle Sam, and that it tells the
people of the frontier that their only
protection is in their own stout hearts
and American rifles. The Argus ad
vocates the raising of scalp money. It
says: "A good premium in fresh scalps,
with what plunder can be obtained in
horses, furs and buffalo robes, will
soon place enough of the right sort of
men in the field, and send the Indians
to other hunting grounds."

SWEET CORN.— It is surprising fact
that sweet corn is not abundantly
grown among farmers. Every farmer
thinks he must raise his five or ten a
ores of Indian corn every year, in or
der to fatten his pork, and to furnish
fodder for his stgck, &c. Now, if every
farmer would grow three or five acres
of sweet corn, his crop would prove of
much more value in proportion to the
number of acres of Indian corn for feed
ing purposes. Last spring I planted
six acres of sweet corn for the purpose
of taking it into market green. But,
after the market became "glutted," I
concluded to save the balance of my
corn and cure it to feed. I cut anil
fed my hogs corn (in the stalks) every
day, and they would eat stalks and all
as clean they would green clover. 1
would recommend it to those that sow
corn in preference to any other.

FLOUR MAKING. —The question how
much wheat does it take to make a bar
rel of flour is often asked, and the an
swer is of general character, "five bush
els aae allowed." At the anniial fair
of the Dubuque county (Iowa) Agri
cultnre Society, in 18G7, a premium of
three dollars was offered for the best
barrel of Hour made from winter wheat,
and also the same made from spring
wheat. .V firm entered one barrel
each, accompanied with the statement
that sixteen bushels of winter wheat
yielded three barrels and one hundred
and three pounds of flour at the rate of
four bushels and fifteen pounds of
wheat to the barrel. Of spring wheat,
fifty bushels yielded eleven Garrets or
flour, being four.bushels and thirty-two
pounds to the barrel. The wheat was
fair quality and no more.
