Gen. Sain. Carey, representative in
Congress from Cincinnati, andtheonly
Republican member who voted a
giiinst impediment, in a speech deliv
ered before a working man's meeting
in that city on Monday night, thus
gives his reasons for bis vote:
1 will now give you briefly my reas
ons for voting against impeachment.
In the first place it has, in all the his
tory of this Government, from Wash
ington down, been regarded as the
President's right to select his Cabinet
officers in every administration, and
to remove them at his pleasure. You
remember when Duane was Secretary
of the Treasury, and he was ordered
by General Jackson to remove the de
posits, contrary to the law of Congress.
He refused, and Jackson said: ".Step
out sir: I will find some one who
will." [Applause.]
Yes, my countrymen, it has been the
uniform practice, and has been regard
ed as indispensible to the wise and le
gitimate administration of this Gov
ernment, that the President should
have Cabinet officers who should he
his confidential advisers and friends.
Ain't that right? Yes; and these
very men, these very judges who are
sitting to-day on this trial of impeach
ment thought so. When Mr. Lincoln
was President o! the United States it
was supposed that one member of his
Cabinet was nut in sympathy with
him—Mr. Montgomery Blair. Sena
tors, including Wade and Sherman, of
Oltio, and Sumner of Massachusetts,
to the number of twenty-four, address
ed a letter to Mr. Lincoln, in which
they used this language:
"The President of the United States
should be aided by a council
agreeing with him in political princi
ples and general policy, and all impor
tant measures and apppointments
should be the result of their combined
wisdom aud deliberations."
That's good sense, isn't it? They
then go on to say that Mr. Montgom
ery Blair does not entertain that rela
tion towards Mr. Lincoln—that he is
not in full sympathy with him—and
then add:
"The Cabinet should be exclusively
composed of gentlemen who are the
cordial, resolute and unwavering sup
porters of the principles and .purposes
of the President of the United States.
Here, then they charge Mr. Johnson
with being guilty of high crime, in this
that he wanted a Cabinet Minister who
was in lull sympathy with him with
the administration. Those men say he
ought to have it, and every President
ought to have it, and J say so. It
doesn't matter whether he be Demo
crat or Republican, the confidential ad
visers of the President should be in
sympathy and harmony with him.
He has a inemher in the Cabinet who
dot l s not speak to him : that is in open
and direct hostility to him, and will
not go and sit in Cabinet Council with
him and lie wanted to get him out.
[A voice, "Kick him out.") Yes.
[Laughter.] If General Jackson was
in there he would touch him with the
toe of his boot. [Cheers.]
Think of the precedent we are set
ting. Suppose we should have a Dem
ocratic Congress and a Republican
President one of these days, and the
Democratic majority should say:
"There is no use in trying to do any
thing with tliis Republican President;
Let us kick him out." "Oh well,"
some one says, "what can you get up
against him?" But they can say
"what did they have against Mr.
Johnson" [Avoice —"tliat'sit."] And
if you can impeach one President and
turn him outunder the present charges,
what President is hereafter safe when
the majority in Congress is opposed to
him?" [Cheers.] It is no matter to
me how bad a man Andrew* Johnson
is. lam not his apoligist and defen
der. A man told me to-day, "Ah Car
ey, you have been Johnsonized." Put
have 1 gone over to Johnson because
I dare to say that he or any other man
sh til be protected by the laws of the
country. [Cheers.]
Mr. Carey continued !y saying that
Andrew Johnson could nly remain in
office a year longer. Stvnton had lost
! self-respect by acting as he did ; and
' even those who had advsed Stanton to
remain in the War Oilhe had a eon
i tempt for Lis action in so doing. He
! referred to Ben. Wad. 'ssitting on the
trial, and said that by tic spirit if not
by the letter of the Constitution, Mr.
Wade had no right to vote in the
Court of Impeachment. If Mr. Wade
| did vote in that Court," "he ought
to be spit upon by the whole civilized
world." [Applause.;
In referring to the growing inclina
tion 011 the part of yeung men, after
they have served long and hard ap
prenticeships to acquire a good trade,
to abandon this mode of making a liv
ing and to enter the or medical
profession, where it is supposed great
er emoluments can be secured and larg
er honors won, a cotemporary well
observes that in nineteen cases out of
twenty such ventures are failures, for
two reasons: First, the professions re
quire peculiar talent and the most
thorough education. As a rule, ap
prentices to the trades have neither the
time nor the means to acquire this edu
cation. Hence, when a mechanic at
the end of his apprenticeship aspires
to and enters any one of the profess
ions, he does so at a great disadvantage.
He may be a fluent speaker, know
how to argue a point in a debating so
ciety or hatangue a crowd at a ward
meeting, luit such talents do not fit
him for the legal profession. He may
know how to extract a splinter from
his own hand, how to make a salve,
how to mix a powder or administer a
pill, but all this, while it might quali
fy him as a good nurse, does not fit
him for the medical profession. The
fact is, the young men who abandon
their trades are tempted to do so by a
feeling of false pride, erroneously
imagining there is 110 honor to be secur
ed in a pursuit of the mechanical arts.
History proves the fallacy of such sup
The brightest names which now a
dorn the annals of all countries are of
the best mechanics who have blessed
mankind with the productions of their
genius. All that is beautiful and grand
is the result of improvement in me
chanics. The pendulum, the main
spring, the barometer, thermometer,
printing press, steal*> engine, locomo
tive, sewing machine, telescope—all,
all are the result or mwrhanb' arts,
making those famous who produce
them, and the people great who adopt
ed them.
A good mechanic who becomes a
pettifogger or quack, merely because
he is too proud to work at his trade,
is, indeed, a pitiful object. A man of
the right mental balance, who has pro
per mental form, with the necessary
independence, will win as much honor
and as fair a living in the trades as in
the profession ; indeed, an indifferent
lawyer or doctor lacking briefs or pa
tients is always a miserable being, a
bad example in the community. Let
our young mechanics, then, become
ambitious in their own vacation. If
they dignify their trades by becoming
proficient therein, the trades will dig
nify them with the highest honors.
If mechanics pursue their business
with a purpose to self-improvement
therein, and not merely to hammer
and file and saw, but to improve the
art, to develop something new therein,
the mind will be strengthened as the
arm becomes muscular, and the heart
of the mechanic will be made to swell
with as true a pride as ever glowed be
neath the doublet of a prince. Will
the young mechanic think of these
"THAT'S II ow.' '—After a great snow
storm, a little boy began to shovel a
path through a large snow-bank before
his grandmother's door. He had noth
ing but a small shovel to work with.
"1 low do you expect to got through
that drift asked a man passing along.
"By keeping at it" said the boy,
cheerfully; "thats how !''
That is the secret of mastering al
most every difficulty under the sun.
If a hard task is before you stick at it.
Do not keep thinking how large or
how hard it is; but go at it, and little
by liittie it will grow smaller and
smaller, until it is done.
IF YOU desire to impress the public
that you have the best wares, and the
best prices, and are worthily enti
tled to their patronage, ADVERTISE
YOURSELF. Do not expect to accom
plish everything with one trial, nor
three, but KEEP AT IT, and you will
surely win. ,
Have some SYSTEM about your ad
vertisement, and let that be your shov

AT IT, and you will as surely get
through the dull times and bring more
custom than you can attend to, as that
boy went through the drift with his
small shovel.

: DA.— There is near Ocola, a remarka
ble spring, one of the largest of the
great number known in Florida, it is
called Silver Spring. I found it in the
midst of a lone hammock, overflowing
its banks. It bubbled up in a basin
thirty-seven feet deep and about an
| acre in extent, filling and overflowing
1 it, and sending from it a deep stream
fifty or sixty feet wide, and extending
| eight or nine miles to the Oklawana
river, into which it empties. In the
spring itself fifty steamboats may lie
at anchor, and in the stream, steam
j boats of considerable draught. The
: spring thus forms a natural inland
! port, to which three steamers now run
regularly from the St. John's. The
clearness of the water is truly wonder
ful. It seems even more transparent
than ai r . You see on the bottom,
thirty feet below your boat, the exact
form of the smallest bebble, the out
line and color,and shadesof eolorofthe
leaf which has sunk. Large fish swim
i in It, every scale visible, and every
movement distinctly observable. The
water is impregnated with lime and
magnesia, but lias no appreciable
taste, and is excellent drinking water.
If you go over the basin in a boat you
will see the fissures in the rocks, from
which the river pours upward like an
inverted cataract. There are more of
thespringsin theehannelof the stream,
further down. Such springs arc almost
I common in Florida. Clay Spring,
! near the east bank of Lake Apaka,
pours forth a navigable stream into the
! St. John's. Bug Spring, on the west
| side of Lake Harris, is nearly as large
as Silver Spring. I have laughed at a
story of a spring in lowa, which was
! large enough to turn a mill, but I can
: swallow all such tales now, after hav
-1 ing seen one that will float a fleet. —

VOL. 62.--WHOLE No. 5,439.
One of the gi cutest obstacles to the
successful civilization of Turkey is the
condition of the femalesex there. The
theory of the Turks is that women are
created to be slaves and bear children.
As a consequence, their education and
refinement are wholly neglected. Their
ignorance is accompanied with an
amount of superstition and fanaticism
almost beyond the imagination. They
give themselves up to the ideal entire
ly. Their minds are peopled with
spirits and genii that hold high carni
val and dethrone the reason. When
sick, the spiritual physician attends be
fore the regular practitioner, and his
means of disenchantment are often
more potent than medicines. The
priest has unlimited sway over their
beliefs, and that he has power to exer
cise the devil, raise the dead, and per
form countless miracles, is accepted as
part of their religious teaching. Their
devotion to the Koran and to the Mo
ham medon religion is as sincere as it
was 1,200 years ago. Indeed, female
society is the same in Turkey as it was
hundreds of years ago.—Yet these
women, steeped in superstition and
ignorance, revelling in the errors of
heathen ages and reeking all over with
unchristian and uncivilized enormities,
are the mothers and teachers of the
Turkish youth. Reform'is impossible
with them, for the effortsof the priests
all tend to keeping them in this dark
condition, and the interests that hus
bands take in the reformation of even
their own harems is too remote to ac
complish any good. Some of the more
enlightened Turkish men speak of re
forms and education, but never in con
nection with the women of the land.
Until the female sex are relieved from
their barbaric ignorance; until the
load of superstition that now sinks
them far below the scale of mortals is
raised; until these mothers and teach
ers of the young are rendered compe
tent to fulfil their high trusts, we can
expect but little in the way of Turkish
writer in the American Farmer writes
as one learned in the chemistry of food.
He says : "Our whole process of con
verting wheat into bread has, at al
most every step, violated the laws of
nature and disregarded her sugges
tions, and the reform must be a funda
mental one. Wheat is, beyond all
dispute, the most perfect article of hu
man food, it being the only vegetable
production yet discovered that con
tain—nil the elements necessary for the
nourishment of the muscle, bones, fat
ty tissue, and brains, in just the right
proportions. Beans, peas. Indian corn,
and the other grains afford perfect nour
ishment for all the organs but the brain,
by which term is included the spinal
marrow and the nerves, which branch
from the brain, and are identical in
composition with it, the whole forming
one system or set of organ-. Now the
pabulum of the brain is phosphorus,
who.-o life-giving fire thrills along the
nerves, and whose light illuminates the
chambers of the mind—for eould we
rightly understand the correspondence
between the materia! and the spiritual,
we might see that light in the intellec
tual sense was something more than a
mere figure of speech. The wear of
the brain by study or any mental ef
fort throws off the phosphorus which
is found with other waste matter in
the urine or other secretions. 'To keep
the brain healthy and in working or
der, the waste must be restored by the
use of food containing phosphorus, and
that food is wheat.
"It would seem as if wheat was made
for bruin food, and man, the only ani
mal that works with his brain, is the
only consumer of it. But by a strange
caprice, the promptings of his intui
tions are overruled by his tastes, and
in this particular instance, t" his groat
detriment, nearly every particle* of
this brain-nourisding phosphorus is
found in the hull or bran of the wheat,
which, when separated from the flour,
for the sake of merely gratifying the
eye with the sight of white bread, car
ries with it all the superiority which
wheat possesses over a dozen other
kinds of cheaper vegetables. In addi
tion to this, the mechanical action of
the bran on the internal organs keeps
them in a healthy state, and supercedes
the necessity of pills and other cathar
tics, 'which many people are obliged to
use habitually. This matter of making
flour of the whole wheat is well under
stood, and approved by every school of
physicians, and through their recom
mendation to their patients, and the
teachings of health journals, its use is
becoming somewhat common, and
wheat meal, as it is called, is a staple
article in the markets."

A writer in nn Eastern paper says
there "ought to ho p. new edition of
Father Grant's story published irunu -
diateiy, with copious illustrations, not
forgetting, as the most prominent of
theinall, that of Grant, junior, riding
on a mule with a monkey on his back.
S ichan illustrat ion, alt hough retrospec
tive, would be quite apt to-day ; for is
not Grant riding a rnule; the animal
sometimes represented by Andy John
son and sometimes by Thud. Stevens
and the Radical party? But which
ever animal he rides he always carries a
monkey on his back in the shape of the
politicians. What effect this literary
contribution may have on public opin
ion or how it may boused by thoßolu
miunsund other men of genius we know
not. We know, however, what was the
effect of General Scott's speeches about
the sweet Irish brogue and delight
ful German accent, the delicate allusions
to a garment which shall be unmen
tionable, and the hasty plate of soup,
the tire in the rear and all the other
well-timed and ill-timed allusions of
that disappionted politician; but wecan
not conceive what the effect may be of
this paternal biography on the fortunes
of Gen. Grant.''
Too BAD.—A little girl, dressed in
bloomer costume, who had been seated
between her elder sister and beau
during a drive to the country, on her
return accosted her ma thus: "Ma, 1
won't ride with siter Jane and Thomas
Smith any more, for he ke; ps a hug
ging ana kissing her all the while.—
Now, just see how lie mussed up my
pretty bloomer hat," at the same time
holding up to the astonished mother's
view a dilapidated-looking bloomer.
"Susan! Susan! how can you talk so?"
was the mother's exclamation, "it
can't be possible that your sister allows
Mr. Smith to take such liberties!"
"Yes, but it is possible," was the reply
of the mischievous little minx; "and
mother, she likes it, for she leans up
to him just like brother Jack's Guinea
pig when he scratches his back."
friend whose snoring power is so great
that on a summer's night a watchman
roused the family, thinking some one
was dying in the house, lately stopped
at a hotel in Maine. Aware of his in
firmity, he requested the man to give
him a room as distant from other dor
mitories ars possible, that he might not
disturb their tenants. He retired in
due time, and fatigued by travel, sunk
into slumber and soon began to snore,
the sound gradually increasing from
that of a droning bagpipe to the loud
est trooper's bugle. At length he was
aroused by a tremendous pounding at
his door, which he opened and inquir
ed: "What do you want?" "Want!"
exclaimed the fellow who had waked;
"Want! quiet to be sure. I've slept in
a saw mill; but, hang me, if I can stand
your noise."

"Take your stoek home," was the reply;

to me for your dividends on it." And
that man is now receiving on his in
vestment of ten dollar.-, eight hundred
dollars per annum in gold.
