Bat dim was wisdom's taper;
Because the evening glided by
Without a weekly paper.
But woman's eye is quick to see,
As Mrs. Gray was shrewd;
And though he was quite a man,
Yet sometimes he was rude:
And when they went, last Friday night,
To call on Mts. Draper,
She said her husband wawa goose,
And doesn't take a paper.
Good natured Alfred when accused
Of this before them all,
Looked calmly round and softly said,
My income is too small ;
I always wear a bonnet less,
Said gentle Mrs. Draper,
Throughout the year, to give my dear
That good COMPILER paper.
How would we know produce was up,
Or shoes or dry goods down;
The name of our new President,
And where his native town.
Nor would we know young Andrew Brown
Haff wed the rich Miss .Layper,
With ninety thousand, all 14 cash,
if 'twos not for the paper.
This I have done, said Mrs. Gray,
For bonrielless am I

Yet nothing have laid by,

Get something new to clear the mind,
Or shoes upon the feet ;
The good wives chipped their hands with Joy,
The children cut a caper,
The vote at once was twelve to one,
And so he took the paper,
There is an edifice up town,
In upper-tendum Street,
There's Alfred Gray Ee q 's home,
The rich and poor to greet.
He rose quite soon from obscure life,
Soon left Its murky vapor,
For affluence and usefulness,
Because he tdolt the paper.
Dear reader, in fretful home,
If you from d: y to (lay

As once did Alfred Gray;

Although you bear them meekly,
If you'd outlive them and be rich,
Then read the COMPILEp. weekly.

For the Gettysburg Complier.
MR. Enrrort-By --your perthission, I
will present a few thoughts and sugges
tions to the rural readers of the COMPILER
on a subject of vast importance to them.
The means at our command for in
creasing and maintaining the productive'
powers,of soils are numerons. Experi
ence has in every age taught the necessi
ty of supplying to the soil those substatil
ces which are essential to its fertility.
Lime, as is well known, is the most
active and efficient fertilizing agent with
which we are acquainted, and the Judi
cious • harmer will not fail to apply it to.
his impoverished and exhausted lands
whenever he can raise the money where
with to pay for it. Indeed, if it is ever
expedient to incur debt it is in buying
But there are other means which may
be employed for this purpose which are
not attended with , any expense, and'
which are within the reach of all.
All substances which, when mixed
with the matter of the soil, tend to fer
tilize it, are, in common language, term
ed manures ; -as for example, the con
, tents of stables and barn yards, marl,
ashes, salt, ; -lime, compost, and every de
scription of animal and vegetable
. It is the uniform experience of
farmers and gardeners in all parts of
the - orld that barn-yard manure, that
is, the. which eomes from the stable, the
cow-hou. • , the sheep fold, the pig sty and
other simi • sources, is in the whole, the
most valuabl • because it is the most uni
versal in its hen • i cial effects, of all knoWn
manures. /Other ... • ures, such as the
phosph, guano, ~ . ne dust, gypsum,
&c., are very valuable or particular pur
poses. This is useful f all.. This, al
most the only agent we k'n wof which is
apted to all kinds of soils, nd which
keeps up the fertility of all kin . of land.
The farmer's main reliance . .t be
upon this kind of manure. "Nat . has
ordained that he shall humbly wait u . • n
1 the dissolution of organic matter, and es-.
1 pecially that; he shall convert the disgust
ing excrement of animals into forms of
beauty and utility. His success in his
calling makes him the ever watchful sen
tinel upon putrefaction." Here is the
mine in which is to be found, his princi
pal wealth; and the day is not far distant
when he will avail himself of all the re
fuse animal and vegetable matter that is
now suffered to go to waste, by its decom
position to poison the atmosphere and
thereby engender disease.
The barn-yard should be the reeepta- 1
de for everything of the animal and veg- 1
etable kind possessing fertilizing proper
ties. • For substances found in small quan
tity this is doubtless the best place. Of
this class may be named the offals of
slaughter houses, consisting of blood,
hair and filth of every description. So
are the shavrngs and chips of the repair
shop and the wood-pile. So are the
woolen rags, bones, feathers, old hats,
old shoes and boots, fragments of leather,
and the sweepings of cellars, yards and
streets. So also all muck, leaves, and
decaying and rotten vegetable matter
that may be collected in woods and along
fence•rowa and water-courses.
Whatever of the abOve Is to be obtain
-04, should. be collected sad with other
waste substances carried to the barn-yard
and converted into manure.
The quantity of either inay appear
small, and 6carcely worth attention; but
it will be iDund that the aggregate in a
year will swell the manure heap to double
or treble its usual size. It is by attend
ing to suchtsmall things that the farmer,
as well'as the man of business, becomes

\ 44TH YEAR.-NO. 41.
THE NESP,TRICK TO roue": NEGRO
ISEFFRAGE TIPTON THE PEOPLE
OF TUR EXITED STATES.
The Disunion 6ongressional Directory
have at last agreed npon their plan of "re- '
construction." It co slats of an amend
ment to the Federal \ constitut'ion the
principal object of which \ is to establish
Negro Suffrage. Let us eiamine it for a
moment. Section first decd' that
"All persons born or natural ed in' the
United States, and subject to the ti risd ic
tion thereof, are •eitizens of the 'tilted
States and of the State wherein th • re
side. No St ate shall make, or enforce
law which shall abridge The privilege,' :r
immunities of citizens of the Culled States,
nor shall any State deprive any person of
life, liberty, at property, without due pro
rem of law, or deny to any person within
its jurisdiction the equal protection of the
Observe; "all persons born or natural
ized in the United States," are made
"citizen* of the United States and of the
State wherein they rude." Certainly
and indisputably this means tint Negroes,
Mulattoes, and every body el,e per
sons) shall be citizens. Now, the leading
Disunionist» in Congress argue that eiti
zenship embraces every right that can be
enjoyed under our form of government.
They tell us that one citizen is as good as
another, arid, therefore, that a white citi
zen can have no privileges which do not
equally attach to the black. Thus they
intend to compel the people to accept
Negro Suffrage. First, by this amend
ment to the Constitution, they propose
to make "(Li/persons," including Negroes,
citizens. Next, the Negro being a citizen,
they will demand for him the same rights
as are exercised by other citizens.—
Should any State attempt to interfere
against their scheme by legislation, they
will say, "You dare not deny to any per
son' within your jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws." To carry out
their - programme, should they have a
majority in Congress, they will pass such
laws as will suit their purposes. In order
to enable them - to do this they have added
a section to the amendment under con
sideration, which reads as follows :
"Section 5. That Congress shall have
'power to enforce, by appropriate legisla
tion, the provisions of this article."
~Again, Section second declares that
whenever the right to vote is denied to
any of the male inhabitants of 'a State,
being twenty-one years of age and citizens
of the United States, the basis of repre
sentation shall be reduced in proportion
to the number of such male inhabitants
excluded frhrn the right of suffrage. For
instapce", Pennsylvania has a Negro pop
ulation sufficient to give her one member
of Congress. Had not the Negro inhab
itants been counted in the last apportiOn
ment, Pennsylvania, would have had but
twenty three instead of twenty four
members of Congress. Now, if this
amendment be adopted, Pennsylvania
must either give the Negroes the right to
vote, or lose one member of Congress.—
Th is yule would operate still more severely
upon the Southern litotes. They woul
be compelled to lose one third, at last, of
their present representation in Congreis,
if they declined to confer the right of
suffrage uphri their Negroes. On the
other hand, if they choose to give the
Negroes the right to vote, they , would
gain largely in representation, as but
three-fifths of the slaves were counted in
the last Congressional apportionment.—
Hence, this section of the Amendment
compels, on the one hand, and bribes, on
the other. Its whole purpose is to induce
the States, North and South, to OM the
it T egroem the right of Suffrage. This, even
"he who runs may read."
Such, 'then, Is the plan of "reconstruc
tion" presented by the Stevens and Sum:
ner Disunionists of the so-called "Repub
lican" party. In the language of the
Bedford Gazette s it is NEGRO SUF
FRAGE, or it is nothing. The people
must choose between it and the uncon
ditional Union policy of President John
son, advocated and supported by the
THE TRUE ISMtE.
The Springfield Republican, one of
the most independent Radical newspa
pers in the country, is determinedlo hold
the majority in Congress to their appoint
: ed work of setting the negro on a level
with the white man, and will not suffer
them to avoid that issue, or confuse it, or
deny that it is really before the people.
We take a few paragraphs from its col
umns on this subject, which are honest,
out-spoken, and to the point :
"The suffrage question is not to he got
rid of. It must' be a leading question in
our polities until it is settled, spite of all
etrorts of the politicians to shove it aside
qr (lodge it. The Congressional recon
struction scheme innores it, Awl for this
reason, if for no other, that scheme can
not bring final settlement. Indeed, it is
framed chiefly and confeassdly for use in
the fall elections, and especially to enable
certain. shaky thngressmen to dodge the
Bi 4 rage question. We doubt whether
they will get even this temporary advan
tage from it, for it is ittipossibte to make
the people believe that the suffrage question
has disappeared from the political arena,
or that it is not really involved in the clec-
Siens. The Democrats will be certain to
keepit alive, for they consider white suf
frage their strong point, and rely upon the
prejudices of ignorant or negro-hating
whites for votes in support of a 'white
Man's government.' "
There are other "prejudices" on which
the Democrats rely, such, for instance, as
the "prejudice" of the people in favor of
the Constitution as our fathers made it—
in favor of free speech and a free press,
and Immunity from arbitrary arrest, and
the popular hankering after the writ of
habeas corpus, trial by jury, and other
antiquated follies. It ut this is by the
way. The Itepnblic‘n frankly admits
that it will be as vairt and ruinous Nunn
just to attempt to fasten negro suffrage on
the Smith if the Northern States refuse
to give \ votes to the blacks within their
own borders. Its words on this point are
truthful, significant and, we take it, pro
phetic of what will actually come of the
dishonest and selfish policy which gov
erns the Radidaltiln and out of Congress :
