The Pine Forests of America. A writer in the St. Louis Republi can givos llio following vnlualile facts and spei'incatioiif in rr-puru 10 tnc lumber production and trade of tins country : ' . . ti "Ion yenrs ago stumps in jiame tlie Penobscot and Kennelieo riveis won al wlitit wnsconBiilered n nominal valuo, from fifty cents to ono tlollnr per thousand feet. M lien it tan uo obtained now, it is sold from seven to ten dollars. On the M. Lroix river, Minnesota. tuninni!0 was only filly cents to ono dollar per thousand feet 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 citv. or the, Eitu Claro Lumber Cum panv. fir inslanco, own over HO.OOO acres; Kntipp, Stout & Co., ol Du btiqno, now connected with tho firm of Boss Si Walk-up, of this cily.own and control 100,(110 or more acres, and 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, PRINCIPLESi 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." IE NOT MEN. 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 cation. Ho spoko strongly, as ho fell strongly. He knew thai Iho accusa tions were unlruo, and he v:is loth to believe (though by this limo his loyal faith must bo a little staggered) that (his pet Mr. Stunlon (for il was Judge Blink who gavo him his position) eoiil J bo so false. Judgo Piluck was earliest in tone, antl us ho is apt to be, vigorous in phrase, and his resent ful tlel'enco of the dead carried dis may into iho nest of tho slanderers. This was in June lust. It now seems (for this new Atlantic artitlo tells us so) that the whole fra ternily was promptly culled into t out til. Suwurd, und Sumner, and Hoar, and Howard, ami Holt, and liuwts (antl .Mrs. Ihiwes,) dii mnjoret ct mi. Sores of ..assuchusults and Michi gan, were summoned lo Wilson's res cue, and nil gavo their testimony. The October mugaaino serves up to us tin dish of which thero woro so tnanj cocks. Its article blazes away at our poor Pcnnsylvanian like the gun charged wiih trumpery which Maiot (iahagan fired at tho elephant. We hivo not hud limo to hear of its effect lu Yot k. Willi more than ono peculiarity in this nnnil'csto Iho ciilicul reader can not fil to bo struck. Though the memtries of Slanlon, proving him to have iecn an original acrid aoolitioii ist of , tho Luntly school, go back over niativ years, no dutes are given ol ro cent' occurrences, so thul I hey can be tented, and everything rests upon the p-esenl hearsay. II is what Mr. ! Simner, or Mr Inwes, or Mr. How ard says Stunlon told him, so tliul the tightest flaw of truth in eilhor link stpnrates and destroys tho whole.

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 white race. 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 tain Ilervey. "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 ailh uniform plainnc. and acriiptilmis neatness.

Now, Farmer Joyce is a practical minded man ; disbelieves in love, Cu pid, spirits, good or bad, and is dowrf upon what ho terms "book larnlng." While jogging along, ruminating upon tho probable rise mid fall in grain, his wagon suddenly came to a stop by one wheel breaking off from Iho axle. Joyce, being a practical man, put his ideas into practice, timl waSsoon mov ing along wilh a rail dragging under llio broken axle, with tho wheel laid upon the top of his loud : "All fur liie best," thought lie" "there may lie a rise in grain before 1 get lo town."

Kansas City Bul letin. CcRiosiTirs in American History. American political history is full of furiosi lies and singular incidents. For instance, three nf our Presidents, ull of whom participated in tho Hernia lion, died on ils great umiivcrsary tho 4th of July, viz: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe, (ieorgo Washington, when ho retired from tho Presidency, was in the sixty sixth year of his ago. His successor, John Adams, w hen ho led, was sixty six years old. After him came Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, nnd James Monroo. Mr. Jefferson was sixty-six, Mr. Madison had just passed his sixty-sixth year, and Mr. Monroe was in his sixlhy -seventh, when they respec tively left Ihe Presidential niliec. From 110 to 1H5. the Presidential oflice was filled by Virginians. lur ing the same interval, w ilh the cxeep. lion ot four years, the Vice-Presidential office wus steadily held by citizens of New Y'ork. John Adams negotia ted the treaty of pcaco that concluded tho war of the Revolution with Eng land. His son, John (Juiney Adams, was a lending envoy, and negotiated tho treaty which ended tho second war with' England, in l!14. His son. Charles Francis Adams, at tho third great crisis of our country, was our Minister to England during tho recent war, from 1X01 .to lti."i, the period which covers tho Alabama claims question. Beauty or the Sf.xks. The rela tive beauty ot tho sexes is said to dif fer considerably in different countries. French travelers in England have re ported that, as it rule. Englishmen tiro oettiT looKiug sH-ciiuciin ot uie iiuiiiuu race divine titan Eolish women. To this opinion our gallantry forbids us lo defer. We, however, will slulo also that these impartial French observers have said thai a beautiful English girl is iho most lovely mid lovable crea lure among created beings. In this opinion we at once und unreservedly express our entire coneiirreiico Hut ol tho relations between male nnd f" male beauty in other countries wecifl speak more freely. Under tho sun ny skies of southern Italy, fine figures urn much more common umoug tho male than among llrj female sex. In northern Italy ibis is less remarka ble. In Franco this slate of tilings is reversed. There, handsome women are lo handsome men us ono to six or eight. Among the snows and frosts of liiissin, too, both in regard to fea tnro and figure Why is this? Is it not in judging of femulo beauty our canons of criticism aro much more strict than thoso we apply to the lords , , of Creation I I and wo stand amazed at the power and greatness of God as it pours from the hollow of his hand. But one Niagara is enough for tho continent or tho world, while tho same world requires thousands and tens of thous ands of silver fountains nnd flowing rivulets, thai water every farm and meadow and garden, and shall flow on every day ar.d nighl wilh their gen tle und quiet beauty. So wilh the acts of our lives. It is not by great deeds, liko those of the martyrs, that good is lo be done, but by the daily and quiet virtues of life, the Chris tian's temper, and good qualities of relatives and friends." At a trial in nn Alabama loan, not long since, ono of tho witnesses, an old lady of somo eighty years, was closely questioned by tho opposing counsel relative, to the clearness of her eye sight. "Cun you seo me?" said be "How well can you see mo f" persisted the lawyer. "Well enough," responded tho olj lady, "to see that you uro neither n nero, an Indian nor a gentleman." Tho answer brought down the house, and silenced the attorney. Missr.n ins Ciianck. An elderly gentleman, returning home on Sun duy from church, began to extol Ihe merits of tho sermon to his son.
