Where are you going So fast, old man,
Where are you going so fast 1'
There's a valley to cross, and a river to Ihrd,
There's a clasp of the hand and a parting word,
And a tremulous sigh for the past, old man;
The beautiful vanished past.
The road has been rugged and rough, old man,
To your feet It's rugged and rough;
But you see a dear being with gentle eyes,
Who shared in your labor and sacrifice;
Ah! that has been sunshine enough, old man,
For you and me, sunshine enough.
How lona since you matted o'er the hill, old man?
Of life o'er tie top of the hill
Were tnige beautiful valleys on t'other side . ?
Were there flowers, and trees with their branches
To shut out the heat of the sun, old man,
The heat of the fervid sun.
And how did you cross the waves, old man,
Of sorrow—the fearful waves?
Did yotflay your treasures by, one by one,
With an aching heart and "God's will be done,"
Under the wayside - dust, old man,
in.the graves 'neath the wayside dust?
There la SOMA' and labor for all, old man—
Alas! there is sorrow for all;
And you, peradventure, have had your share,
For eighty long winters have whitened your hair,
And they've whitened your heart, as well, old
Thank God! your heart as well.
Ton are now at the foot of the hill, old man—
At last at the foot of the hill I
The sun has gone down In a golden glow,
And the Heavenly City Is Just below;
Go In through the pearly gate, old man—
The beautiful pearly gate.

In a recent number of the Sehnellpbat
We find an account of a method of com
pelling the wheat become peren
nial, like grass, and to perfect its grains
annually without annual sowing of seed,
whieh has been successfully practiced at
Constance, Germany. It was discovered
by the steward of an estate, named Kern.
His method, after ploughing and manur
ing Oland and sowing it with summer
or winter wheat, is to mow it in the spring,
before the ear makes its appearance.—
This process is repeated several times in
the season, and the product is used as
hay. The plant is then allowed to grow
and be cut in the ordinary manner. The
next year it ripens earlier and bears more
abundantly than when treated in the or
dinary manner. It is manured in the
autumn like grass in the meadows, and
in the spring cleared from weeds. In
this manner, from one field, four success
ive harvests have been gathered. "
.Our farmers are learning one very im
portant thing in farming our clay lands ;
that is, fall plowing, if done at the right
time and well done. Although It does
not accord with the views of our exam
piers, yet experience has taught us its
great benefit. No machinery yet invent
ed can fine our chiy land like the frosts
of winter. I can convince any one if
he will only look on a piece of barley
here, part fall plowed, and part plowed
this spring. J But the benefit to.the crop
is not all; we can plow for one-half the
cost in the fall. Our teams are in good
condition, and ready, with a small ex
pense for feed. I close, and may say
more on the subject of plowing, tome oth
er time, as that is a very important part
of farming.—N. H. N., Geneva, New
We lost, a few months since, a tine
cow with this disease, and there has
been considerable fatality with it
some of our large dairy districts._ A
practical farmer informs us that, in his
own dairy, he has found nearly a certain
cure to be a large dose of laudanum, not
less than six to eight ounces. It has also
proved very successful In many other
cases outside of his own dairy. With
our own now—and we believe it is a gen !
eral accompaniment of the disease—
there was a violent dashing about with
the head and horns indicating great ex
citement of the brain. The laudanum
alleviates this, - and by temporarily
checking this excitement, allows time
for the disease to be thrown off by tfie
natural efforts of the system. Whatever
may be the theory of its action, how
ever, the favorable results in nine cases
out of ten have been very remarkable,—

A beefsteak ought always to be broiled
and never fried ; but the following meth
od of cooking is recommended by Mrs.
Hutton, which even those who are accusr
tomed xo frying may be willing to try:
"The frying pan being wiped very dry,
place it upon the stove, and let It become
hot—very hot. In the meantime, mangle
the steak—if it chance to be sirloin so
much the better—pepper and salt it, then
lay it in the hot, dry pan, which cover as
tightly as possible. When the raw flesh
touches the heated pan, of course it
seethes and adheres to it, but in a few
seconds it becomes loosened and juicy.—
Every half minute turn the steak; but be
careful to keep it as much as possible un
dercover. When nearly done lay a small
piece of butter upon it if you want much
gravy, and a tablespoonfulvfstrong coffee.
In three minutes from the time steak
first goes into the pan it is ready for the
table. This method of cooking makes
the most delicious, delicately broiled
steak, full of juice, yet retaining the
healthful beefy flavor that any John Bull
could require. The same method may be
applied to mutton chops, only they re
quire a little longer cooking to prevent
them from being rare. An excellent
gravy may be made for them by adding
a little cream, thickened with a pinch of
floor, in& which when off the fire and
partly cool, stir in the yoke of an egg,

The National Intelligcnce'r ` publishes
the following circular from the National
Union Committee in reference to the
Philadelphia National Convention :
In many of the States active steps have
been taken to have full and able delega
tions to the proposed National Uniolt
Convention at Philadelphia, August 14th.
In others there' seems to be some misun
derstanding as to the manner in which
delegates are to be chosen. With a view
to give the ,proper information, the fol
lowing circular, emanating from the Na
tional Union Committee, has just been
issued and Bent into all the States and
Territories * The indications are that this
Convention will be one of the most impo
sing and important assemblages ever held
in this country :
WASHINGTQN, D. C., July 10, 1866.
Your immediate and earnest attention
is invited to the annexed call for a Na
tional Convention, is:ued by the Nation
al Union Executive Committee, and the
accompanying endorsement thereof by
prominent gentlemen who are well
known toThe country.
The undersigned have been duly ap
pointed a committee to facilitate and ex
pedite, by correspondence and otherwise,
such action as may seem necessary to
- ring togetherlat Philadelphia a Convent
tion of the ablest men of the nation, with
out regard to their party antecedents,
who favor, generally, the restoration pol
icy President Johnson has advocated
as against the dangerous course pursued
by the majority of Congress.
We deem it proper to suggest that it is
desirable that there be sent from each
State four delegates at large and two from
each Congressional district who favor the
principles set forth in the call, to be ta
ken from the supporters of Lincoln and
Johnson in 1804, and a like number from
their opponents. Also, four delegates
from each Territory, and four from the
District of Columbia.. In those States
whereof a portion of the people were
lately in rebellion, a corresponding
of delegates may be chosen by the
people generally who accept the princi
ples stated in the call. It is not intend
ed, however, that these suggestions shall
interfere with any arrangements already
made for the selection of delegates. It is
entirely to the political organizations in
the different States and districts that con
cur in . the principles of the call to decide
whether they will choose their delegates
by joint or separate meetings, by their
executive committees.
We have been authorized to appoint
temporary executive committees in the
States where the same are presumed-to be
necessary. You are, therefore, request
ed to act as such committee, and to adopt
immediate measures to secure a full dele
gation to the proposed Convention, not
interfering, however, with the action
which existing organizations may have
taken for the same object. Your action
will be such as to aid such movements—
the purpose of your appointment being
to provide for the selection of delegates if
no adequate preliminary arrangements
have yet been made.
The day fixed for the National Conven
tion is near, and we desire to impress on
you and on all friends of this cause, that
It is of the first importance that district
or State Conventions, or State executive
committees, immediately appoint dele
gates. And it is particularly requested
that a list of delegates and committees
appointed be speedily forwarded to the
chairman of this committee.
In conclusion, we have to add that the
paramount object of this movement is to
bring into a great National Conference,
from all parts of our distracted country,
wise and
.patriotic men, who may devise

We Commend to the notice of the Re
publican newspapers of this county the
following honest expression of opinion
from the Selinsgrove Post, always a con
sistent Republican journal :
"Duiing the past few weeks we have
been asked: 'Are you in favor of ,Ans
drew Johnson's course?" To which we
must •emphatically say yes! Ile stands

the Union Republican party placed him
in 1961—iiit the Baltimore platform. We
have pursued, in regard to the Lincoln-
Johnson policy, the rule which we al
ways observe lu the discharge of ou rjdu ty
as journalists—we have interrogated our
conscience as to what we ought to do, and
that fathful guide tells us that we ought
to, with all our might, mind and strength,
sustain the statesmanlike and patriotic
policy of the President of the United
States; and renounce, with all our abili
ty, the evil designed party—Stevens,
Sumner dr, Co.—who would, if they pos
sessed the power, lead us down into_ the
darkness of despotism,hr the shame and
confusion of anarchy, for their personal
le - The Disunion press have not denied
the charge, made against Geary and the
State Central Committee of his party, that
they waited upon Gov. Curtin and urged
him to ignore the people and to prevent
them from voting on the Rump amend
ment, by calling the last Legislature
together, to adopt it immediately. Will
the voters of Pennsylvania cast their bal
lots for a mall who has thus insulted their
intelligence, ignored their prerogatives,
and counseled a usurpation of their dear
est rights? Will they vote for a man who
wants to take "snap judgment" upon
them, and to prevent them from having
an opportunity of saying whether we shall
have a Union or not—whether or not ne
gro suffrage shall be forced upon the
Southern States—and whether the word
"white" shall be struck out or remain in
their State constitutions? We hope they
will not. Let them ignore - Geary as
Geary has ignored them.
BEZir - The Bumpers are not so liberal to
the soldiers of the war of 1812' a.s they
have proved themselves to be to the
"colored citizens." After many sharp
practices upon the bill to grant pensions
to those soldiers and their widows and
orphans, the Dlsunionists were finally
compelled on Friday week to vote almost
directly upon it. On motion of Kelley
(Disunionist} the bill was referred to the
Committee' on Invalid Pensions by a
vote of ayes 74; nays 47—the Democracy
voting solidly against the reference.
Thus the bill for white soldiers of 1812
and their widows and orphans was
quashed by the Stevens-Gearyites. The
money already squandered upon lazy
Africans would have made all of them
comfortable and happy.

48TH YEAR. NO. 43,
While the Republican newspapers of
Pennsylvania are to a.great extent igno
ring alt the vital issues of the day and
contenting themseh es with heaping stale
slang abuse upon the Democratic party
and its candidates, they follow the lead
of Thad. Stevens and of John W. Forney
with a blind infatuation that is wonder
ful. We admire their stolid stupidity
and would not have them change their
tactics. They do not see that their party
is in the very throes of dissolution.—
Whetber they will wake up to a realiza

coming election, we neither know nor

wisdom sufficient to enable him to fore

Those who follow the lead of Stevens and
Greeley dare not break loose from the

neasedl.l We do not suppose they will

Times imys : ,
The Union party is not united. The
present condition of the party exhibits
strong and dangerous dissensions rather
than armony. And in the regular ar
rangei eats of the party no provision has
been ade for eliciting the prevalent
opinio in regard to questions that have
arisen ince the last Presidential election
as wel as since the election of the mem
bers now in Congress.
On the principle that quit should be
hidden which is not pleasant, and that
that which we. would fain not believe
should be concealed, perhaps, there is
gross Wrong in these confessions touching
the - position of the Union party. It may
perch nee be.eriminal to disturb the ho
sann: - of those who cry peace when there
is no I ace, and who write about the
party . s though no difference of opinion
exist • • In its ranks. But we confess our
inabili y to discover either wisdom or
hones , in this course. Disguise It as we
may, tie unpleasant fact does not admit
of mistake. The Union party is divided
so dirt ed and distracted that its defeat
will he nevitable unless sonzething he mean
while one to determine authoritatively,
its col se on the question of restoration, its
cond it •ns and consequences.
The Lancaster Intelligences well says
that a ter such a bold and authoritative
exposi on of the true condition of the

"Republicans and Democrats, who act

IM.The Radical disu,nionists greatly
fear the adjournment of Congress. They
think that when that event occurs, they
will be all turned away from the public
erib, at which they are now feeding.—
They are shamelessly prolonging the ses
sion, and recklessly spynding the money
of the heavily burdened tax-payers, sim
ply to prevent, if possible, any changes
irr the offices they now hold. If they
were assured that they would not be dis
turbed in their present snug positions,
they would adjourn ,to-morrow; but,
feeling somewhat uncertain on this point,
they want Congress to sit forever, and
thus hope to have a perpetual stream of
public plunder flowing into their pockets.
And these are the fellows who are all the
timeprating about a "bread and butter
brigade !"—Pcitriot & Uaion.
'The rumor that General Geary is
to be withdrawn from the Gubernatorial
contest is daily gaining strength. The
reason of this stragetic movement, how
ever, is not the absolute certainty of de
feat that stares him in the face, but is, we
learn, the fact that he has been tendered
a high command in Victor Emanuel's
army, since the latter'a uncomfortable
defeat by the Austrians. It is thought
by V. E. that the prestige of Geary's
name and his great fame as a warrior,
will promptly rescue from destruction
the Sardinian forces. We understand
that the General is pre ring a farewell
letter to his old friend Major Samuel
Maguire, clearly defining, his position
upon this all-important subject. —.Age,

session of the Legislature to adopt the
Rump Constitutional patch, and thus
entail taxes upon the people of the State
to the extent of at least two hundred
thousand dollars, the people will elect a

dare to elect Curtin to the United States
Senate. We may safely say, therefore,
that Curtin dare not ignore the people's
right to have a voice in the matter by call
