For the Gettysburg Compiler
The life of a farmer, and especially of
one who makes Ins IVelihood through
the products of the soil he cultivates, is
one of alino:t constant labor, and if, when
in summing up the fruits of his year's
toil, he finds but a mere pittance left after
he shall have provided for his own wants,
who or what is he to blame? Certainly
not the soil, since this (with the excep
tion of a few places) would yield .abun
dantly if properly cultivated. Tiler*
he must account for it himself, and bo
will he do this?
Let us take an example. Suppoite
man purchases a farm of moderate siz ~
say 80 acres, and for which he pays.soo
per making the cost of his farm gt-1,-
7v). After paying his expenses and pro
le' ding for his faintly, he finds he has
ed but $3OO from the products. 'the
farm has been badly worked, little or no
manure, lime or other fertilizer applied,
,the former owner having sold ell the lay
and straw he could possibly Spare fret
his stock.
- Then let the new-corner keep all the
hay and straw he gets off the farm, tindl
from the woods gather all the leave - he
can, (tire more the better,) and with lan
make as much thoroughly rotted manure_
as it is possible to do. Let hitu take the
half of his $3OO, or as much as he Can
spare from contingent expenses, for this
he can posqibly buy about 2000'bushela of
lime; putting 60 bushels to the acre; (it
does not do well to lime too heavily in
the beginning,) and with the addition of
his manure, he will be able to give about
the one half of his farm a good dressing ;
then with good, regular ploughing, say 7
or 8 inches deep, thorough pulverizing of
the soil, and finally a proper care inirt-
Ong out his crops, he will find that he
soil unused to such liberality will yield
very well, considering its yield befOre,
probably giving him a net return of $5OO.
Let him pursue the same plan the peat
year, and give the other half of his farm
a similar dressing, and he will probably
clear $7OO ; thus owning a good producing
farm, clearing from *7OO to $lOOO per
year, as the season may permit ; and he
will be able to pay for his farm in - 8 or 9
years, and live like a noble-hearted tiller
of the soil should.
I have given this example with the fig
ures attached, that any one reading this
and owning such a farm, may take heart
and persevere, resting assured that old
mother earth will well repay his efforts.-
Gettysburg. . - A. A: R.
A lady experienced in making butter,
_Before I go to milk, I put a kettle,
say one•thlrd full of water, and large
enough* let the milk-pail into it, on the
stove, where it will get boiling hot by
the time I come with the milk. I then
strain the milk into another vessel, and
wash the pail (which should always be of
tin), then pour the milk back into the
pail and set it into the kettle of boiling
water till the milk becomes scalding
hot, taking eare not to let it boil; then
pour it into pans anti set it away in the
cellar for the cream to rise in the usual
way. Cream produced in this way will
seldom require bore than twenty min
to churn, while by common practice
the dairy-maid may often churn for hours,
and then, perhaps, have to throw it away,
as I did before I became acquainted 'with
the Russian plan, the essential features
of which I have adopted in my present
mode, as given above. The method is
applicable to all seasons—summer as well
as winter.
At a *cent meeting of the American
InZtitute Farmer's Club, a member re
lated his experience in this matter, viz :
"An Irishman in his employment, in
order to ascertain where he ought to dig
to obtain water soonest, got a stone and
buried it over night in the ground, next
to the hard pan. In the morning he
found it quite moist, but not sufficiently
to snit his fancy. Nei% night he
. tried
it in another spot and it was found very
wet on the following morning. "There,"
said Patrick, "you will find water not
many feet deep, and plenty of it." Sure
enough, in a few days' digging, Patrick
confirmed his prediction, notwithstand
ing the jeers of the workmen, findings
a vein - which filled the well to overflow
ing, and rendered it exceedingly diffi
cult to bail out the water so as to put
stone in it. The philosophy of the ope
ration seems to be that, 113 great evapora
tion takes place from the surface of the
earth during the night, the water rises
np from the depths below to supply the
low, and accumulittes In the vicinity of
the atone, _often, ;pate a puddle.'

The arch-demagogiam of John W. For
ney has been completely unmasked by
the publica,lion of the following letter.
It is well known that this renegade's bit
ter hostility to President Buchanan origi
nated in no worthier cause than dbiap
pointnient at being foiled in his efforts to
obtain control of the patronage of Mr.
Buchahan's adminiatration. And it now
appears that his opposition to, President
Johnson has beep provoked by a similar
failtfre of his ambitibus schemes for place
and plunder. That a man, who only six
months ago, couldi declare himself the
"open and avowed ifriend" of the Presi
dent, and heartily in favor of his restora
tion policy, should ilow so bitterly revile
hint, is evidence Oa depth of duplicity
and meanness to which it was hardly to
be suspected the m est corrupt politician
would stoop. His letter shows the utter

A correspondent of the Elston Argun
says: Several days ago I happened to
(drop in to see one oflmy neighbors, a sol
id - Democrat, where I fotit'id another
neighbor, .a .ftepublican.
A conversation sprdng up between 'the
two in regard to thd crops, politics, ace.,
of which the following is about the sub
Democrat.--Well. helot - L. ~
a seat. What is thejnews?
Republican.—Oh, there is nothing spe
cial that I know of. How . do your crops
look? •
Democrat Well, they are looking ve
ry well, and I was in 'hopes we would
have a full crop of wheat, but within a
few days the weevil has made Its appear
ance in my wheat and rye, and I am
afraid I will have only half u crop. How
does yours look?
Republican.—l flnd some weevil in
mine too. It is a grat pity, because the
taxes are so high and the wheat failed
lust year and if it fails this year again,
'where under the sun is the money to
come from, to support our fainilies and
pay these heavy bounty and State, school,
county and. road taxes ?
Democrat.—l don't like taxes myself, ,
but I'm like the old woman's eels, I have
baen skinned so much and so long that I
I got kinder used to it.. We're a rich peo
ple and the government can make just as
much money as it pleases, and the fact
is, we need heaps of money to pay our
Republican. —That is so, but I think it
about time our government begins to
practice economy. The war is over now j
and with peace we ought to have some of
the blessings of peace.
Democrat.—Very true, but then our
duty as a people has just begun., We
have made all the slaves of the South
free, and it is our bounden duty to take
rare of them, feed them, to educate and
clothe them. At least, so the leaders of
your party in Congress tell us.
Republican.—Well, I know Thad Ste
and the radicals say so, but I can't
say that I like the proceedings altogeth
er. We made those • niggers free and I
think that's doing enough for them.
They ought to go to York now and make
their own living—not depend entirely on
the government.
Democrat.—Yes, that used to be con
sidered sensible. talk, but the times have
changed. The negro is all Congress cares ,
about; now. It is reported that a new '
Bureau law is to he passed by Congress,
which will do better by the negro than
the present law, and if President John
son vetoes it, it will pass any how. The
.Republican congressmen think they are
,not doing - enough tbr the negroes, and ,
'they talk of spending fifty _millions a
year to build colleges for them so that
they can learn French and engineesing
and everything, of that kind, in order
that they ms 3r become fit to vote with ns,
to sit on our juries and take charge of our
public works and be school teachers and
professors in our colleges and ministers
in our churches and everything of that
Republican.—And 'vho is to lay - for
all that?
' Demnerst.—WhyOron and I WI John
here. We pay for it. You help pny for
these things in everything, yon buy.
When you buy a pair of hoots you pay
three dollars towards it. When you buy
a hat for two dollars and a half, you, pay
about a dollar tax. When yen tiny a tit
fo; $3O, you pay perhaps six dollars tax.
Some articles are taxed three or four
times before they get into your hands.
For instance, when you go to a tailor and
order a $3O suit, he hay to pay six per
cent. government tax to the collector
every month. The tailor, when he bought
the goods, paid a tax to the manufacturer
who made the cloth, and the farmer who
raised the wool out of which the goods
was manufactured, paid an income , tax
on the wool ho raised. Ail these taxes
we have to pay and the money gog3 to
support the negmes. At Washington
City there are mbra,than ten thousand
fed by the government every day. And
if you Will read the report of Gen. Fuller
ton and Gen. Steedman, who were sent
down to South Carolina to examine the
condition of the negroes there, you will
find that the government has to support
them all, while Yankee preachers cheat
them out of all their earnings.
Republican.--If these thin:72 are so,
why do our Congressmen support ouch
Demoerat.—Be,.. use the leaders of the
Republican party have "niizger on the
brain" and are d • termined td persevere
until the negro is our equal. They will
keep on until we lave negro jurors and
negro judges, an when you go to vote
you must stand la(cit and wait until Sam

will go to the eleeltion next October, and
vote for the huMbug
,John W. Cleary,
for Governor, who Is in favor of negro
equality and in favor of everything you
condemn. Now how canyou go and
support the man and vote against your

Repubilean.—l tell you I won't do it.
I am a Republican, but I swear if our
leaders don't smell too strong (S. nigger

Democrat. —I am glad to hear you say

danger of ruination.
Republican.—Well, I must be going.
We will talk these matters over more
fully some other time. Good-bye.
Demoerat—Good-bye—call soon again.
The above report is substantially true
and I want you to put it in your paper.,
1 To the PeopTc of the Utile(' ,Vo(ra :
I Danger threatens the Constitution!
The citadel of our liberties is directly as
sailed ! The future is dark unless the
vi e o o u p r le o r
p ll e i ri c l ou n t a e t to n t a l;e j i e i s i t o - e n ie. sho l u nah i Ls
the watchword of every true map. As
essential to national union we must main
tain unimpaired the rights, the dignity
and the equality of the States, including
the right of representation in Congress,
and the exclusive right of each State to
' control its met domestic- concerns, sub
' ject only to the Constitution of the United
States. After an uniform construction of
the Constitution for more than half a
century, the assumption of new and ar
bitrary powers in the Federal Govern
ment is subversive of our system, and de
structive of liberty.
A free interchange of opinion and kind
feeling between the citizens of all the
States is necessary to the perpetuity of
the Union. At present eleven States are
excluded from the national councils.
For seven long months the present Con
gress has persistent*: denied any right of
representation to the people of these
States. Laws, affecting their highest and
dearest interests, have been passed with
out their consent, and in disregard of the
fundamental principle, of free govern
ment. This denial of representation has
been made to all the members from a
' State, although the State, in the language.
of the President, presents itself not only
in an attitude of loyalty and harmony,
' but in the Persons of Representatives
whose loyalty cannot be questioned un
der any existing constitutional or legal
test. The Representatives of nearly one
third of the States have not been con
sulted with reference to the great ques
tions of the day. There has been no na
tionality surrounding the present Con
gress. There has been no intercourse
between the representatives of the two
sections, producing mutual confidence
and respect. In the language of the dis
tinguished Lieutenant-General : "It is to
be regretted that at this time there can
not be a greater commingling between
the citizens of the two sections, and par
ticnlarly of those entrusted with the law
making power." This state of things
should be removed at once and forever.
Therefore, to preserve the national 'pion,
to vindicate the sufficiency of our Admi
rable Constitution, to guard the Spates
from covert attempts to deprive them of
their true position in tho Union, and to
' bring together those who are unnaturally ,
! severed, and for these great national pur- '
poses only, we cordially approve the call '
for a National Union Convention, to be
held in the city of Philadelphia, on the '
second Tuesday, fourteenth of August
next, and indorse the principles therein
set forth.
We, therefore, respectfully,. but ear
nestly urge upon our fellow-citizens, in
each State' and Territory and Congres
sional District, In the United States, in
the interest of union and in a spirit of .
harmony, and with direct reference to i
the principles contained in said call, to 1
act promptly in the selection of wise,
moderate and conservative men to repre
sent them in said convention, to the end
that all the States shall at once be re
stored to their practical relations to the
Union, the Constitution be maintained,
and peace,bless the whole country.

Strong and Thompson, constituting the
majority et' the Court, tanned, whilst
Justices Itead end Agnew dissented.
The decision of the Court does not as.
sulne the unetie.titutionslity of the net
of Congress, ender which the case arose,
though it recites the grounds upon which
its con , tittajollality has been assailed:
tlrst, that it iseer po. , t forgo qvconti, that
it is an attempt to regulate tlie right of
suffrage in States; and, third, that it
proposes to inflict pains and penalties
before and without trial and conviction
by flue process 01 .
Upon the tirst, it Is stated that it may
be insisted that the penalty . its not• pre
seribed for the original desertion, butter
persistence in desertion.
Upon the second, it, is stated that. the
act operates only upon the Individual
°Mustier, and does not override Stato
laws, but leaves each State to determine
the qualifications of the voter.
Upon the third, it is stated that the law
does not presume to inflict the additional
punishment of 11t franchipemont
'deserters, except upon trial and convic
tion by court martial according to the
Pre previous acts to which the
act in question i* only supplemental. ,
'According to this view a person who

but only after trial by regular court mar

to this view, also, a record from a provost

with desertion and ehtssifying him as a
deserter, is not ouggeient to (ultra, teleran

Election officers cannot ptesume to try

is held that it is not in the po .r of Con

authorized to constitute such courts, thu

Althoufrii the constitutionality of the
act of Congress was Not at Issue in the

consider that subject in full in all Its
bearings, Chief Justice Woodward does
not heAtate to say that be considers the
