TfIE PATENT RIGHT SWINDLE—How
Farmers are Deceircd by Signing False Notes of
Hand. —Among the many swindling opera
tions of the day the patent right dodge is large
ly practiced on farmers, and we have heard of
several cases in this county within a year.
The following note is a copy of one now in
use by these sharpers. It will appear at first
s ight to be perfectly simple, and no person
wishing to take an agency for any of the of the
many patents would hesitate to sign it :
"t• *". 4 .,
_ . .
Now, having read the above note carefully,
and supposing it to be all right for $lO, just
cut in two between the words or, and bearer,
in the first line, and you will find that the left
hand piece is a perfect note for $275. Having
induced a farmer to accept any agency, as
specified in the original note, and having ob
tained his signature, the sharper departs. He
then cuts off the right hand portion, proceeds
to the nearest broker or banker, to whom he
offers to sell the note at a discount on the plea
of needing the money. The signer is general
ly a responsible person. well known to the
business men of the village, and the note is
purchased. When the note falls due it is
presented for collection, and the signatures
arc indisputable, the horrified farmer is com
pelled to pay $275, when he only supposed
that he owed $lO.
This is one of the most infamous of an tricks
of deception, and is largely practiced through
out the country. Farmers should cut this out
and preserve it carefully, in order to guard
against being imposed on by unscrupulous

MIRAMAR IRON AND RAILROAD COM
PANT.-There is a bill now before the Legisla
ture for the the construction of a road in the
Cumberland Valley to run from Mechanics
burg, diverging southward to the South Moun
tain, and then continuing almost parallel un
til it strikes Shippensburg, from thence it
trends off in the direction of Burnt Cabins,
eventually to be extended to the far West by
connection with our great northwestern lines.
The development of the inexhaustible iron re
sources of the South Mountains is a scheme of
of such vast importance, involving such im
mense interest of manufacturing and agricul
ture, that it would seem almost superfluous to
discuss it. Immediately after this projected
road leaves Mechanicsburg it strikes iron ore
at every mile on its route along the South
Mountain until it reaches Shippensburg. The
belt of ore lying along that mountain is a por
tion of the greatest deposit in the world. It
crops out at every-mile. Geologists have dis
covered nothing to equal this on the continent ;
a deposit within the reach of all our great
manufactories, and yet remaining undeveloped
for the want of railroad facilties to carry it to
a market. There can be no fair argument
used against the immediate construction of a
road like this, for the reason that it is de
manded not only as a means of developing the
mineral resources of the region through which
it passes, as well as accommodating the vast
agricultural industries in that portion of the
State, which comprises as productive a region
as found anywhere in the Commonwealth. If
this road is built, and its construction is only
a question of time, it willbe the means of con
centrating immense investments of capital
along its line in furnaces and rolling mills—
and when it is completed from the South
through the North Mountains, it will extend to
the great West, via our great southwestern
railroad connection, and will be a means of
transportion right at the mouth of the great
iron ore mines, instead of having them located
ten to fifteen miles distant therefrom. Besides
all this, the Miramar road will, as continued,
unite the waters of the Susquehanna and the
Potomac, thus making it a project as grand
in its geopraphical aspects as it will be mag
nificent and enriching in its development of
the inexhaustible mineral resources of the re
gion through which it is to pass.
We have reached that period in the affairs
of the State and nation when every facility
must be afforded for the development of our
great natural resources. The land abounds
with wealth, and it is our duty to extract it,
to make a commerce of it, and use it asp the
blessing for which it was designed. The fur
therance of projects like that to which we
now allude, are links in the great chain of
operation by which these results are to be
achieved. If one is allowed to fail, the har
mony of the great whole is sure to be disturb

WHITE WAstilNG.The season
white washing is now at hand. No farmer or
householder should fail to make a free use of
white wash in the beginning of every sum
mer. No expenditure of the same amount of
money will contribute more to the health,
comfort and pleasure of a family. Besides
the improved appearance a coat of white
wash gives everything, it purifies the air, and
thereby exerts a fine sanitary influence. It
also preserves woodwork. Every cellar and
and dark closet should be thoroughly coated
with it; all the fences around the buildings,
and all stables and out houses should be wash
ed with this preserver and purifier. Nearly
every experienced housewife has her own
mode of mixing the lime, but to beginners we
venture to recommend the following:
Take the very best stone lime, and slack it
in a close tub, covered with a cloth to pre
serve the steam. Salt—as much as can he
dissolved in the water used for slacking and
reducing the lime—should be applied, and the
whole mass carefully strained and thickened
with a small quantity of sand, the purer and
finer the better. A few pounds of wheat flour
mixed as paste may be added, and will give
greater durability to the mass, especially when
applied to the exterior surface of buildings.
With pure lime, properly slacked and mixed
with twice its weight of fine sand and sifted
woodashes, in equal proportions, almost any
color may be made by the addition of pig
ments. Granite, slate, freestone and other
shades may be imitated, and without detri
ment to the durability of the wash. This
covering is very often applied, and with good
effect, to underpinning, stone fences, roofs and
the walls of barns and other outbuildings.
Probably the pure white wash is more healthy
than the colored, as its alkalescent properties
are superior, anti when used in cellars, kitchens
and sleeping apartments, produces sanitary

ly do we welcome the May number of Wood's
Household Magazine. We hardly recognized
it as it entered our office in its new spring
clothes ; but while admiring the color and
quality of its dress, we were delighted to dis
cover that it adorned our old friend. The im
provements which have followed thick and
fast in this Magazine, show the enterprise and
success of its publishers. The heavy paper is
a great addition as well as the cover, and its
typographical appearance is unsurpassed.
Its contents are unexceptionable, and among
its list of contributors are some of the most
noted writers of the day. We do not under
stand how Mr. Wood is able to do so much fur
so little money—nevertheless we are glad to
acknowledge his achievements. The Magazine
is furnished for the small sum of one dollar.—

A SIGNAL TAOIST FOR CARS.—A signal
light, to be attached to the rear car of a train,
invented by two officers of the Little Xliama
Railroad, has lately been tested on that road.
It is thus described by the Railroad Gazette:
"In the centre of the roof of the rear car of
the train, over the rear axle, is placed a square
lantern, with alternate panes of red and white
glass. The lantern is connected by means of
a shaft, with one of the axles in such a manner
that eight revolutions of the axle produce one
of the lantern. When the car stops, the lan
tern, of course, ceases to revolve. Upon each
side of this main lantern are two others, also
connected with the axle in such a way that
when the train is moving forward a solid red
light is displayed, and if backing, a solid green
light. The engineer of a train coming up in
the rear can thus tell, by observing these
lights, whether the train before him is moving
or at a standstill, and if moving, in which di
We are glad to inform our readers tLat our
friend Capt. Johnston, of the firm of Henry &

THANKS.—We are indebted to our
clever friend 3lcKiernan, the Fourth street
tobacconist, for a bunch of prime segars, none
of the cent-a-grab kind, but a pure Havana
brand. We have sampled them, and have no
hesitancy in recommending them to the lovers
of the weed.
The old saw has it that 'lit never rains but
it pours," and this is our fix at the present
time. We are in receipt of more segars from
our jovial friend, Col. Fcerrer, the Hill street
tobacconist, and pronounce them A No.

NEURALCIIA.—A correspondent of the
Lancet says: "A few years ago, when in

camel hair pencil. Since then, in my own
practice, I frequently apply th is oil as aloes' au

gout, with remarkably good result-."

that its title imports—"critical, explanatory

plicity of its arrangement—for the conciseness
and clearness of its style—for the brevity and
comprehensiveness of its statements and ex

THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE FOR
181. _ _ _
Through struggle and suffering, at the cost
of multiform agonies, bereavements, devastations, the
American Idea embodied In the preamble to our fathers'
Declaration of Independence approaches its complete re
alization. The noble, insphing assertion that •'all Men are
created equal," and endowed by their Creator with inalien
able rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is
no longer a glittering generality, a poet's fancy, a philos
opher's speculation, but the recognized base of our politi
cal fabric. The benign Revolution, which dates from the
Boston Massacre of 1711.1, Bade its logical completion, just
one century later, in the XVth Amendment, which gives
to the equatpolitical and civil rights of every man born or
naturalized in oar Republic the shield and defense of the
Federal Constitution. The billows of Caste and Privikge
may roar and rage around that rock, and may transiently
seem on the point of washing it away; but its foundations
are deep laid and steadfast, and the breakers of Reaction
and Slavery are hurled against and dash their spray over
700 to 7 40
We do not underrate the forces of Prejudice and Aristoc
racy. We do not Corot that a very large minoriy of the
American People still hold in their inmost hearts that
Bleats have no rights which Whites are bound to respect.
We fully appreciate the desperation wherewith all the war
ring element. of hatred to Republican achievement will be
combined and hurled against the battlements of Republi
can ascendency of 1072. We do not doubt that local am
ebas., facilitated by Republican feuds and dissensions, will
inspire the charging host with a sanguine hope of victory,
such as nerved it to put forth its utmost strength in the
earlier stages of the constests of 1864 and 1068. Yet our
faith is clear and strong that tho American People still
bless God that, on the red battle-fields of our late Civil
War, the Union was upheld and Slavery destroyed, and
will never consciously decide that theprecious blood there
on poured out was lavished in vain.
Tns TBIBUNv believes in the prosecution of the great
struggle by legitimate means to beneficent ends. To State
Sovereignty, it opposes indissoluble National Integrity; to
Slavery for Blacks, Liberty for All; to Proscription, En
franchisement; to Popular Ignorance, Universal Educa
tion ; to intensity and eternity of Wrathful Rate, universal
and invincible Good Will. It would fain do it utmost to
hasten the glad day when the South shall vie with the
North in exultation and gratitude over the disappearance
of the last trace or taint of that spirit which impeded Man
to exuy in the ownerwhip and chattelhood of his fellow Man.

Profoundly do we realized that the contest is not yet
ended—that Millions mourn, more or less publicly, the
downfall of the filaveholders' Confederacy, and rear their
children to hate those by whose valor and constancy its
overthrow was achieved. if we eve: seem to differ omen-
Rally from other Republicans, cur conviction that magna
nimity is never weakness, that vengeance's never politic,
and that devils are not cast out by Beelzebub, must serve
to explain alleged eccentricities whose perfect vindication
we leave to Time and Reflection.
Ton Thlscws has been, is, and must be, a zealous advo
cate of Protection to Home Industry. Regarding habitual
idleness as the greatest foe to human progress, the bane of
human happiness, we seek to win oar countrymen in
masses from the ensnaring lures of Speculation, of Traffic,
and of always overcrowded Professions, to the tranquil
paths of Productive Industry. We would gladly deplete
our overcrowded cities, where thousands vainly jostle and ,
crowd in misguided guest of "Something to Do ' to cover
prairies and plains with colonies absorbed in Agriculture,
Mechanics and Manufactures, and constantly projecting
into the black, void wilderness the homes and the works
of civilized Man. Holding the Protection of Home Indus
try by discriminating duties on imported Wares and Fab
rice essential to the rapid, beneficient diffusion of Frahm-
Bonin all its phase. and departments, and so to the in
struction of oar people in all the gainful arts of Peace, we
urge our countrymen to adhere to and uphold that policy
in undoubting faith that the true interest, not of a clam or
a section, but of each section and every useful class, is
thereby enbeerved and promoted.
Tut Tumrsz aims to be preeminently a Newspaper. Its
eorrespondents traverse every State, are present on every
important battle-field, are early advised of every no able
Cabinet decision, observe the, proceedings of Congrese, of
Legislatures, and of Conventions, and report to us by telt
graph all that seems of general inter.. We bans paid
for one day's momentous advices from Europe by Cable
far more than our entire recoiptse for the issue in whit]]
those &deices reached our readers. If lavish outlay, un
sleeping vigilance, and unbounded faith in the liberality
and discernment of the reading public, will enable us to
make a journal which boa no superior in the accuracy,
variety, and freehr.ess of its contents. Tee Tamest shall
be such a journal.
To Agriculture and the subservient arts, we have de
voted, and shall persistently devote, more means and
space than any of our rivals. We aim to wake Tan
Wszzi.s Tiustnee such a paper that no farmer can afford
to do without, however widely his politics may differ from
ours, Our reports of the Cattle, Horse, Produee and den
seal Markets, era so full and accurate, our essays in elucid
ation of the farmers calling, and our regular reports of
the Farmer.' Club and kindred gatherings, are so inter
esting, that the poorest farmer will find therein a mine of
suggestion and counsel, of which he cannot remain igno
rant with positive and serious loss. We sell Tint Waau.e
to Clube for less than its value in dwelling. for wastepa
per, and, though its subscription isalready very large, we
believe that a Half Million more farmer. will take it wboo
ever it shall be commended to their attention. We ask
our friends everywhere to aid no In Bo commending it.
