The importance of draining is not proP
erly understood nor duly appreciated
among us. Although water is indispen
sable to vegetation, too much of it is quite
as hurtful as too little. 'lt is necessary to
the germination of the seed—to the de
composition of vegetable matter In the
soil—to the transmission of food to the
plant, to its circulation there and to the
maturity of the product.
All these useful purposes are defeated
when water remains in the soil to excess
—the seed rots, the vegetable matter
which should serve as the food of the crop
remains Insoluble in.consequenee of the
absence of heat and air, which the water
excludes; or if the seed grows the plant
is sickly for want of its proper food, and
there is consequently a virtual failure of
It is not from the surface that we are
to determine whether the land Is suffi
ciently dry to support a healthy vegeta
tion, but we must examine the under
stratum from which the plants draw
their nourishment. If this is wet, if it
grows marshy plants, If water will col
lect in a hole sunk fifteen inches below
the surface, the land is too wet for culti
vated crops, and means should be taken
to render' It more dry.
Cold, sour lands are invariably wet
If not on the surface, then in the subsoil.
Wet lands are generally rich lands, be-
Cause the presence of water has prevented
the decomposition of the vegetable mat ter,
which when the surplus water is drawn
off becomes food for the growing crops.
Let me suppose a case which . will be
found to exist in many poFtions . of the
country. There is a slope of a little hill
half a mile in extent, terminated by a
flat through which a little brook runs.—
The soil of this slope is fronveight to ten
inches deep, of a porous quality, resting
upon an Impervious subsoil. Near the
top of this slope, all along on a_horizqn
tal line, or perhaps lower down, "spouts"
or springs burst through the subsoil, the
waters from 4rhieli tin ling easy passage
through the loose porous soil of the slope
and flat, soon find their way to the brook.
A thermometer plunged down to the
subsoil in midsummer will indicate a
temperature of not more than sixty,
whereas most of our crops require a tem
perature of at least seventy or eighty.
How shall we remedy this evil and render
this land productive? Simply by running
a drain across the slope just above where
the land is too wet, and thus eonduct the
water into the brook through a harmless
Some will object to this on the ground
that it will cost too much, but to such I
can give nothing better than the Scotch
man's answer to asimilar objection, "that
it costs more not to do it." •
Nor does the benefit of the drain cease
when the surplus water has been removed,
for it admits the air into and through the
soil to a degree' which would surprise
those who have no experience in such
matters. The draft Ora two inch tile drain
one hundred rods long is more than suffi
cient to put out a lighted candle, and of
course this air must find its way through
the soil or the draught would not exist.
And as the air always contains more or
less moisture It will of course deposit this
moisture when it comes in contact with
the cooler earth, and in a dry time will
keep the soil moist, just as we see the
moisture collect upon the outside of a cool
pitcher on a warm day in harvest.
In fact draining makes wet soil dry and
dry so I wet, as has been proved by my
Petroleum for Asthma.—A correspond

LymEGROPTED BY THE JOHN
HARRISBURG. IH.ERS 9 CONVENTLON AT
Gen. Davis, from.s l Committee on
reP°rted. ''' t though the
committee had been-long e
n •>ered in their
task, yet that was oaring to ~e simple
desire that this expression of minion
should be unanimous, as he felt hal vin
saying, it was. (Cheers.) The reso,.
tions they had to propose were as follows.
Whereas, The convention, managed
and controlled by politicians, which as
sembled in Pittsburg, on the sth of June
last, pledged the officers, soldiers, said
seamen of Pennsylvania to the support
of the Radical disunion members of Con
gress, and as opmek.d to the just and con
stitutional rest tion policy of i'resideut
leereas, The members of the said
see ton falsely styled themselycs the
preileeitati VCR of the soldiers and sail
,eine of Pennsylvania," and presumed to
speak for them without authority;
And iehercas, The proceedings of the
said convention misrepresent the truii
sentiments of the great mass of the re
turned soldiers and sailors of this State,
and do great injustice to the late defend•
era of the Constitution and the Union;
therefore, be it
Reeolis,d, That we, authorized repro
sentativee of our late companions in
arms, do repudiate the proceedings of the
Pittsburg Coaveution of the sth of June,

Resolved, That we hold the same belief
now I hid we did when we took up arms
in ISGI, and that tire war was "a tear for
the Union," and for tie other purpose;
that the agreement we made with the
government when we took up arms to
defend her against armed rebellioil Is
found in the joint resolution of
adopted . July 22, 1861, . which declares
that, "This war is not prosecuted on our
part in any ,spirit of oppression, nor for
any purpose of conquest or subjugation,
hut to defend and maintain the suprem
acy of the Constitution and to preserve
the Union, with all the dignity, equality,
and rights of the several States tin impair..
ed." This is the bond many sealed with
their lives, and many others signed in
blood. (Great cheering.)
lessoked, That the failure of Congress
to carry Into effect this joint resolution,
after' the war is over, and to restore the
Union, "with all the dignity, erptality; and
rights of the States unimpaired," is a
gross violation of a solemn compact made
with (he defenders of the government at
her time of greatest need and peril. (Ap

Resolved, That we cordially indorse the
restoration policy of President Johnson,
as announced in his annual, special, and
veto me-usages, and as further made
known to the country in his treatment
of the States lately in rebellion.. We be -
lieve it to be just and humane, and better ,
adapted than any other known policy to
restore those States to their constitution

to the country. It is in keeping with I
that generous treatment which a iriag- i

of the Radicals who are now plotting to

whilst the Senate was unorgmilzed the
Democrats were justified in voting
against any resolution which was intend
ed to virtually take from them a great
power in the Senate.
During that memorable contest the
Democrats-voted against many such bo
gus propositions and resolutions, amongst
the number one tendering the thanks of
the people of Pennsylvania to General
Grant and the officers and soldiers under
him ; another Inviting the Harrisburg
clergy to open the sessions with prayer ;
another, on the Bth of January, for the
reading of the Proclamation and Farewell
Address of General Jackson - another
tendering thanks to Gen. Meade and the

which gave the "Republicans' 17 yotes.
The Senate was then organized and the
various officers elected, but the "Repub

the thirteenth ballot fur Speaker, which
resulted in the choice of the old Speaker,
Penny—the vote standing: Pettily 17;
During the remainder of the session,
when the hills and amendments allow
ing the soldiers to vote were brought up
for consideration, Mr. Clymer and the
other Democratic Senators used all pro
per exertions to secure a good law upon
the subject—one which would secure to
every soldier the right of choice. To that
end they opposed parts of proposed bills,
designed to make the law grossly parti
san, and submitted amendments which
would enable every; soldier to vote un
influenced and without compulsion or in
timidalioa, but their efforts were un
availing, and their amendmcnts were
voted down by the misehßed Republicans!
Notwithstanding the law that was
passed is-a strictly partisan one, and de
signed to take from the private soldiers
the free right of choice in a great mea
sure, Mr: Clymer, rather than put him
-elf into seeming antagonism to the sol
diers' interests , voted for the bill on its
final passage. ' Let the Soldiers them
selves sav whether it is such a law es
they would have passed, and whether as
Democrats they had a fair opportunity
to vote, and a free unobstructed choice
under it. Hundreds of soldiers have de
clared they had not. —Patriot & Union.
Myren/a/or the Phitadelphict Conven
tion.—.-A great "wigwam" for the accom
modation of the National Union Conven
tion has been erected hi Phildelphia. The
Newe, referring to, it, says :
The plans are now in the hands of" the
architect. They will be rapidly carried
into execution and the building proba
bly completed by the 10th of August.
The wigwam will be the most extensive
pyramid of canvas ever erected in the
United States. It will exceed in size the
Chicago Lincoln convention of Dol.
It will seat ten thousand persons. A
special gallery for ladies will be a prom
inent feature of the building. It will be
erected on the Central Skating Park of
Dr.- Jansen, at Fifteenth and Wallace
streets, and will occupy nearly all of that
large quadrilateral. The Convention
that is to assemble within three weeks
will be the largest and most important
body of statesmen .ever convened in
America. The wisdom and forethought
of the National Union Johnson Club of
this city in erecting it is commendable.
Without It no place of meeting for the
convention could have been atYorded in

The Radioal lltembors of the Louisiana

summer for the purr).* of taking aetion
on the amendmout the Constitutlon'of

the present ConiTess. This Mr. Durell
refused to do, 011 the ground that his
functions ceased when the Convention of
18414 adjourned, end imeitentling that that
body could now have no legal existence.
Notwithstanding this refusal, the Con
