villiuns it nearly over. Gonorul am-
iio.ty mim eooncr or Inter be dvclnrcd,
no different bow unpalatablo it mny
bo to Radicalism. The Philadelphia
Age, in a late iHnue, sets the business
forth In its Iruo light in tho following
aitiole : "
This qiioBtion will be taken up in
Congross next Monday. It involves
the honor of the nation. It may be
worth while fur every citizen to think
a little about it; aud to know some
thing about it.
The terra "general amnesty" ex
presses that wise political oblivion
that everv atnlcumiin. everr intnlli.
gont man knows to be tho true policy
Willi rugara to acts that wore nharutl
or Approved by millions of people.
lcars have now elapeu, una every
opportunity lias boon allordod to pro
ceed in exceptional cases, for the
frcneral action of the body of tho
nouthorn people in the luto civil war,
there is in truth no practical course
posxiblo but that of amnesty.
W hy has it been Uolityotl !
It has been delnyoJ in the interest
of tho foulest and dirliost truffle that
over digraced a nation tho trade in
iuis trade un nourishing branch
of the system of extortion which tho
lladical carpet boggors liavo ostub
lixbed at the South, and it is this as
sociation of thieves that has succeed
ed in wielding nil influence at Wanh
ington, and with the Iladicul press,
stillicient to resist the general senso ol
tho country in favor of general urn
It is truo that the gcnoral stench of
this infamy has a Utile martled Presi
dent Grant, now that he is on tho
anxious seat as a candidate for re-
oloction. Hitherto, an opponent of
general amnesty, and constantly
quoted sgainst it by bis own organs,
lie nas' thought it expedient lo put
Into his late roessago of December
4th, what might bo taken as a recom
mendation or amnesty. But it was
not explicit enough to prevont his ol
ficiul organs from continuing to do-
clare that ho is opposed to it. We
nnd it poxilivoly asserted in tho jour
nal published by the chief federal ol-fico-holdcr
in this city, that "the Pres
ident is not, howovcr, prepared for
general amnesty." (Press, Uouember
25.) Tha game now of the pardon
mongers is to kcop their trade alive
by putting into tho proposed bill largo
classes of exceptions, not for any pur
pose of punishment or exclusion, but
to make them bny apodal pardons of
tho dealers in that article The trade
has begun hrixkly at this session, and
ll has been briekly driven at every
sossion xince tho close of the war, now
nearly seven yoars ago. Al every
session, bill alter bill is panned, each
containing tho names of liundreds of
humble, 'obicuro individuals who have
boon blllied into buying purdnns.

Depletion of Soils.
From tha Country Oentleman.
After tho careful sludy of tho sub
ject many venrs tho writer estimated
the loss of fertility in ono hundred
million acres of land in tho United
Slatos In consequence of defective
husbandry and improper lillago, as
equal to an nverago loss of ten dollars
per ocro being un aggrcgato of ono
thousand million dollars. This wus
in a report made lo Congress in 1849,
from the Agricultural Department.
Sinco that lime tho undersigned has
investigated tho turned out old fields
and agriculture of tho Southern States
patiently, il not thoroughly, ovor twen
ty years, and he feels confident that
there are two hundred million acres
(about half in old field and half under
fence) in the Union, which aro deplet
ed lo the extent al least ol ten dollars
injury por aero, on a fuir uverago. In
other words, our landed eMale is real
ly poorer than nature made it by two
thousand million dollars. If we cease
to do this evil io the futuro, and learn
to do well, this damage may soon bo
repaired ; but if wo continue to follow
tho bad example of Persia from tho
days of hor greatest agricultural de
velopment when she fed and tlothod

Rarely has tho episenpato of any

by death, superinduced by overwork.'
as hue been that of Ihe Methodist
Episcopal Church in the United States'
during the past four years. Indeed,
half of the effective bishops who pre
sided at the Uoneral Conference four
yoars ago have gone to their blissful'
reward, lhero aro nvo out ot nine
remaining, four of whom only are
effective, and they are nearing tho al
lotted tiino of man'a probation on the

senior Bishop of the Methodist Church,
has been superannuated '.heso many
years, but by husbanding a once strong
aud vigorous constitution ,0 is able to
travel from bis Ohio homo to the East

seventy cignlh year, and as ho looks
back over tho progress which hi
Church nnd his country have mad
during his conscious lifetime his heart
naturally swells with salistuction ana

so long. Though advanced in years

Uo has just passed the sixty fifth yenr
of his ago, tho forty-second of bis min
istry and the twenty eighth of his
bishopric. Ho joined the Philadel
phia Conference in lgiiO, and was
chosen to tho episcopal office by the
General Conference which met in this
city in 1844 the year in which the
Methodist Church divided on the sla
very question. He has lived to see
that bone of contention ground to
powder and mada an agent to over
throw the fubric which itself raisod.
He has been in labors abundant ever
since, and last year ho travelled over
twenty-five thousand mile to meets
Annual Conferences. When it is re
membered that thero are seventy two
conferences in tho United States and
but four bishops to meet them it will
bo seen that their yoke is not easy nor
their burden a light ono. As a preacher
Bishop Janes ranks high. On subject
vital to Methodism, such as missions,
church extension nnd itineracy, in
which ho is deeply interested, ho bo
comes eloquent, and his musical voico
whon warmed up gives him a power
over an audience which enmparatively
few ministers possess. Ho is an nd

beloved by his ministerial brethren.
