6vo years ago, now it averages irotn
two dollars and fifty cents to live dol
lnr and fiftv. Nothinir under the
former figure is desirable Pine
lands can scarcely bo found in tiov-
crnnicnt hands. It is gradually con
riitrnliru' into the liamls ol fewer
nurtiea. antl is most rapidly onhitno
inrr ill vulnn. Thero are patties who
now number their lands in la.h tracts
M..rs. CliHtinintt A Thorn, of this

several other parties on the Wiscon
sin, Chippewa, St. Croix, t'pptr Mis
sissippi rivers and Iribtlinrios, own
nn.l eonlrnl from 20 to 8(1,0110 acres
ouch. Tho business, in fact, has as
stimed a very d:fl'ercnl phase from that
of ten years ago, and all available or
valuable pino lantJs aro now pin me
property, and owned in tho main by
men who appreciate their value, and
who aro fast clearing away tho forests
and acndinir the products lo mni Ket.
Now. with all this lame concentration
of lands nnd tho heavy dralt that lias
l,..n mmlft on the ltireets ol Pino in
I Im nnst few years, it becomes a scri
oils question to mo man no mu
". .. i ...:n
think what is to sustain this immense
draft for ono of llio most common no
cessarics of life, and a demand for
which every improvement in civilisa
tion is only increasing. While the
object of those who control this largo
interest in monopolizing to n creai ex
tent tho trade of tho future will be
most seriously felt w hen tho heavy
demand that is lo come from Euroiie
and prospectively that of Asia, tlie
former of which is already drawing
on us for supplies.
"Tho lumber trade of Michigan,
Wisconsin, nnd Minnesota, for tho
year lHli'.), shown tho amount rut as
being 2,0'!,.7-'..r).r) feet for tho State
of Michigan. .17,4(10.000 feel for the
Stato of Minnesota, and lKll,(100,('il)O
feet for iho Stale of Wisconsin. This
includes I no lake shore, and the whole
Slate of Wisconsin, which heretofore
has been dilllt ult to g' l a report from.
Tho total amount cut in theso Stales
was ,:ill,:i72.2.r.r) feet, and thai tool),
tain this tpnintity thero have been
shipped tS:i,(ii! acres or 1,U0 square
miles of pine have been removed. It
is calculated that 4.000,000 acres of
land still remain nnsl ripped in Mich
igan, which will Vield 15,000,000,000
feet of lumber. While 11,000,1100 acres
are still sltitiilinif in isenn.in, which
ill yield 1 l,f)H.0OO.OII0 feet, and that
w lilt Ii remains in Minnesota, taking
the estimate of a few yenrs sinco of
that which was surveyed and unex
plored, after deducting the nninttnt
cut the past few years, wo find 3,0:10,.
000 acres lo be llio proper estimate of
trees now standing which will yield
3,.'lli,500,OOO feet of lumber. This
mukes a total of 15.lbiO.UOO acrea r
pine lands, which remain stat.ding in
the above Slates. Ihut will yield fS,
ti4,(:0,(!0t) feet of lumber, and it is
thought that fifteen or twenty years
will be required to cut and send to
market tho trees now standing
These figures show llio Increased rule
of consumption during the past year,
and indiciiltt with what rapidity our
forests can lie cleared. We w ill take
the filler lumber Slates for inslanco,
w hich hsve surprised every inhnliitaiil
at tho early disappearance of their
w hile pine. I ho Maine forests have
been so Well snipped that ti"t a tree
of old growth is to bo seen in them.
The white pino is represented only by
saplings, which will not be of any wor
vice, as lumber, for years, and most
of the lumber thev use now comes
from Michigan. Twelve years ago
j New York was a great lumber Slate,
CLEARFIELD, PA., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2G,
anil exported houvily tho manufac
tured quulities ; while now her pine
forests tiro exhausted nnd alio has to
rely on the Inko regions of tho Wost,
by way of tho Erio Cantil, and from
Cnnada by Lake Chatnplain nnd the
Chaiiiphiiu Carat. Large quantities
of hemlock and spruce tiro yet to be
tountl in tho northern counties nt th
Stato, whii'h in part substitutes for the
pino, and railroads are piercing the
wilderness in order to bring it to mar
Uet. Wo have now reached a period
when tho demand for timber is rnpid
I)' on tho increase and tho supply di
minishing. Settlements, too, are ap
proaching tho trcelesN regions of the
plums. liy what agency tho ostcrn
jiruiries and tho country beyond have
been denuded it is useless to speculate.
"It is truo Unit thero is a large re
gion in the vicinity of Georgian May
and tho Province of Ontario, Canada,
as yot hardly touched by ti e wood
man's axe. Put when wo lake into
consideration the vast extent of terri
tory of the West and South to bo sup
plied, we cannot look to Canada from
tho West for supplies, while tho Amer
ican Eastorn is destiluto and will re
quire, all '.hut region enn furnish.
Then Wisconsin, Michigan, and Min
nesota will be the more heavily drawn
upon each year for tho demands of the
West and South, and the question is,
can any plan be devised to replace the
loss by consumption of lumber now
being exhausted with such prodigali
ty f In Europe, among tho questions
that for tho last century have been
important in tho councils of the na
tions, has been that of preservation
atid adding to the growth of tho woods
of the countries. Vulunblo orders of
merit aro accorded to tho men who
preserve or grow tho limber needed
for ornament or manufacture. And
lo the intelligent man from England,
France, or Prussia there is no night
that occasion) him more surpriso and
puin than tho recklessness Willi which
ho sees our wood cut down in the for
est, lost in the transit by carelessness,
or wasted in tho inanuiacluro. We
Americans uro not exempt from the
stupidity that has taught Ihe people
of the Old World such a fearful lesson.
The destruction of our forests and de
nudation ofour prairies of their prim
itive vegetation have niudo feui ful in
roads upon our climate. The rains
have lens frequency, nnd when they
do come arc moro deluging than for
merly. We are more frequently suffer
ing from tho opposite extremes of ox
eessivc droughts and destructive in
undations. Our spring, brooks and
rivers aro drying up. Our old folks
all tell us that brooks now moro than
half the time dry, in their child
hood afforded constant water power
lo mills; and as a proof of what they
say, point to the mill sites long since
abandoned. Whv is this J Jtccauso
our forests have long since succumb
ed, or uro rapidly disappearing before
tho axo of the woodman and Iho fires
of tho incendiary, and our flocks have
denuded the prairies of Iheir primitive
grasses. Experience has established
tho fact that ihoso regions, by protec
tion from firo and proper care, may
he covered with a growth equal lo the
wants of Iho settlers, and may be con
tinually renewed for all limo.
"Projects huvo been suggested for
planting and retiring forests, and yot,
while all descriptions of timber uro be
coming more scareo in settled com
munities, and moro expensive, it is
nevertheless the conviction that tho
evil may he lessened by proper effort
in all tho Slates cast of ihe great
pluins, and even in those pluins the
grand forests of the Cascade region
w ill furnish supplies until tho science
of arboriculture may clotho such tree
less localities as are now appropriated
to ccrcul cultivation. The process of
fostering this interest should bo en
couraged, and every farmer and indi
vidual consult their greatest want.
Tho method of planting and rearing
Irccs is reduced lo a science. 11 is
known that tho pine and fir tribe aro
generally grown on sandy, shallow
Htirfaee soil ; other trees are native of
swamps; whiletho oak, hickory, chest
nut, and others of hardier nnd moro
solid growth exist in natural and bet
ter soils, situated to their peculiarities.
The Slate of Kansas is the first to
take steps in this matter, for tho cul
tivation of foreign trees, and tho gov.
eminent is offering rewards of merit
to thoso who will cngngo in tho enter
prise. Mr. US. Elliott, ofthis citv,
us industrial agent ol tho Kansas Pa
cific Itailrond, is similarly engaged
along tho lino of that road.
"Kill ofall limber Iho whilo pino is
one of iho most common necessities ;
it enters more largely into use for gen
end purposes than all others combined,
and its preservation should interest
every individual in Iho land. Al the
increased rale of consumption, and the
fearful inroads llial arc being nunlo on
our forests of pine, the years will soon
pass by when Michigan, Minnesota
and Wisconsin will bo ns destitute of
this timber us Mttino or Now York.
"llut the question comes back lo us.
can any plan bo devised to prevent
Iho waste, inereaso tho durability, or
replace tho loss by consumption of the
lumber now being exhausted with
such prodigality T 'Tis truo lhat
there should be more economy in
building houses. Build so as to ac
commodate tho wants of tho commu
nity, and not with tho extravagance
of room nnd waste of material which
is so nnticeiihle in the tenement houses
of our day. There is plenty of timber
which can be used in tho place of pine
for cerlaiti purposes thai it equally
as gootl antl servicahle, antl by this
means iho pino interest can bo foster
oil for a much longer limo without
much competition or much ndvaneo in
prices, antl cheap homes, ' heap rents,
will enter into the domestic economy
of tho people."
A lady, who through the autumn of
life h.d not lost nil dreams nf it
spring, said to Jerrold : "I cannot
imagine what makes my hair turn
gray. I sometimes fancy it must, be
the essenco of rosemary, with which
my maid is in tho habit of brushing
it. What think you f" "I should bo
afraid, mad.tme," said tho distinguish
ed dramatist, dryly, "that it is Iho es
sence of thyme."
Stanton the Suicide.
Some months since wo published a
vory able and caustic review, written
by J uilge Black, of certain sluloments
mad. by Senator Wilson, of Massachu
setts, in an extravagant eulogy made
by tho hitler upon Stun Ion, llio late
tenacious Soerctarv of War. To this
review, which excoriated the hide of
the Massachusclts Senator toatlcgreo
that aroused Iho pi I y of all who cult
not look with composure upon rxces
sivo cruelty lo uiiimnls even of ihe
vilest order of vermin nnd creeping
things tho eulogist of the defunct
"stickist," alter licking his flagellated
hide for a limo in quiet, put in re
spouse, which appeared in lheirtii'c
Mimtuty of the current ninnlh. The
character and effect of the response
may bo gathered from the subjoined
notice of it, which wo find in the Now
York World of Thursday. If the
frirmlt of tho "late lamented" two
faced secessioloyalist keep up the
light over his remains effete morally
and physically they will have him
appear so smirched and spotted that
no ono will recognize his picture,
except the few irlto knew him so infi
mately at to be able, to conceive of hotc
much basenefs and treacltcru he wat
really capable :
mt STANTON CONTROVERSY.
Tho quarrel over Mr. Stanton's
character, which bis friends have
provoked, is a very pretty quarrel
as it stands. To us, w ho, having our
own matured opinions n limit Mr.
Stanton's character, uro profoundly
indifferent on the s ill nee I, tin simple
alternatives are equally satisfactory.
Lilher, pending the ttuchanan admin
istration, Mr. Stanton was meanly and
basely falso to his patron and bis
trusting friends, or else he was tech
nically 'disloyal," nnd actively en
gaged in cheating Iho lie publicans.
lie may have been both, for Mr. Sum
ner tells us bo hud "an instinctive in-
eight into men and things." Certain
it is that Mr. Stanton s Iriends cannot
claim for him immunity because ho is
dead. Had they chosen to pile up
positive panegyric nn his tomb until,
with tho festive Mr. Seward, Ihty
muJo him "almost divine," no ono
would have said a word, lint this did
not stiflicc. His ravenous shudo bud
to ho propitiated by richer sacrifices.
Tiiko tho easo of Senator Wilson and
his man Kriday Hoar. Tho latter
for Stanton's suko mado a dissecting
room of tho Supremo Court, and man
gled a dead President in his honor, to
the disgust of all about him. But as
Hoar bus had his reward, wo say
naught more about him. Senator
Wilson steals away lo Boston, and,
collecting nil ihe crisp fuggota of his
periodical rhetoric, the very rubbish
of the Atlantic, ho rears a iiugo pile,
lilio old Cuxton's at (ilenwithershins,
and sets it on fire. Great and ghastly
was tho glare thereof. He laid upon
it the dead Mr. Buchanan, and the
dead Mr. Toucey, nod tho dead Mr
Kloyd, and tho hideous sntnko and
louiliy smell ofthis frightful incrcnu
tion dispersed itself throughout the
land. Then wns it lhat Judge Pluck,
a friend of at least two of theso mal
treated dead, Indignantly came for
ward with his honest words of vindi

Chinese vs. White Lalor.
A correspondent of iho Now York
Tribune has been interviewing tho
Chinese, at North Adunis, Mass. und
Bcllvillo. New Jersey. Liko his hrolh
er radicals ho is enthusiastic over the
pig tailed toilers, and predicts that
they will effect a great revolution in
the relations of capital and hibor. In
speak ing of Mr. Sampson's yellow shoo
makers, at North Adams, he says
"t hey like money and know the value
of it, yet the gen-'rosity of ihcse men
is remarkable. In the .Sunday school,
when tho collection box was passing
around for pennies, for somo far away
healhen, one of tho f'hineso pupils
placidly dropped in a dollar, nut-weigh-ing
by his simple gift tho liberality of
the w hole school." And vet this cor
respondent, nlmost iu lite same breath,
informs us thai these people have ul
ready saved und sent away $1,000 out
of tho small pittance I hey receive for
their labor. We submit it to sensible
people that ihcy could not throw
many dollars into contribution boxes
and suvo such a large sum in so short
a lime. Put since radicalism bus now
placed the negro on the highest attain
able political and social pinnacle, it
must of necessity seek out some other
race to glorify ul tho expense of the
Passing on to Hellville, where Capt
James Ilervey has resent by imported
a squud of Chinese to carry on the
business of his immense laundry, the
correspondent finds himself forcibly
reminded of wartimes. Cupt. Ilervey
and his rul-ealing allies have found it
necessary to throw up entrenchments
and employ sentinels lo protect them
selves Irom the threatened wrath of
enraged w hite people. Put the magic
word "Tribune" disarms the sentinels,
unbars tho gatos, und ad mils the eu
logist of paganism to the presence of
his friends and brethren. The visitor
asserts in ono place, that the Chinese
aro perfectly safe whilu in another he
says Cupt. Ilervey wus fully justified
in his apprehensions of serious (rouble.
The reader may believe either or neith
er of theso statements us may suil
him. The fact that the doughty Cup
tain has built a strong fence around
his establishment, and employed a
strong force of men to guard against
violence, is conclusivo proof that he
feared the whilo workingmen would
not lamely submit to ibis inundation
of barbarians. So fur, however, his
fears have not been realized, and prob
uhly never will be.
Put w hat we particularly desiro to
draw iho attention of our readers to,
in this connection, is the evident desire
of tho Tribune correspondent to im
press upon the public mind Iho great
superiority of iho Chinuso to the former
employes of tho laundry. Truo to
the principles und actions of his party,
he endeavors to extol the pagan be
yond iho chrisiiim. His conduct is
moro shameful in lhat ho depreciates
while females. It is bail enough to
decry whilo men, but w hen women
arc held up to public deri-ion, every
instinct of humanity rebels against
tho foul traitor w ho is guilty of so
huso an action. lie endeavors lo mil
igitlc tho enormity of llio offense by
styling theso females lrih women,
but this cannot avail him or his friend
Greeley in tho fast approaching hour
when whilu men sl.iill call him antl
his fellow knnves loan account. The
relative economy of the Chinese and
iho women is Ihtis spoken of by Cap
"I shall be alile." be said, "to fatten my p-rk :
enough to supply my bands, on tor scraps which
the girls wa.te, and he Cbiiiainen save."
Hero is wluit the Tribune has to say
about tho contrast between iho wo
men and Chinese in personal appeur
aneo and cleanliness :
-In pere-inal appearance th. women are not
ne.t, nor alw.i s cleanly, while tile I liinree dress

Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe,

John Adams, w hen ho led, was sixty
