looks a little worse of the wear, but
the Godcss is as bright and pert as she
was ono hundred years ago. Sho is a
standing figure in Harper's Journal of
A Plenipotentiary Wanted. It
is whispered that Hayes will give the
English Mission to Grant when be gots

ezchango chimes in on that point in
this way: "If tho English Mission is
to be offered to Grant, Mr. Evarts says

FARMIXO AAD FAIRS.
No business equals in importance
that of fiirming. The farmer while
contributing to bis own advancement
in wculth adds to the prunpei ily of tho
State of which ho Is a ciliten ; ho digs
out of the earth riches while thoso who
follow other pursuits only receive them
soennd hand in reward fur services
rondorod eilhor directly or indirectly
to tho sturdy titter of tho soil. It is
this fact which renders tho business ol
funning so independent in its character
and places it far above any other oc
cupation. A man who owns a farm
clear of debt and who properly under
stands how to conduct it, is bettor sit
uated to enjoy the real and substantial
comforts of life than any of thoso who,
cooped up among tho brick walls ol a
town or city, aro compelled to worry
day in and day out to earn a precarious
substanco by exacting physical or
mental lubor. Tho farmor is not oom
pellcd to work on time; no bell strikes
to sumon hitn to labor, and no task
master counts each minuto during
which he mny wish to rest from bis
work. Wbilothe farmor sleeps, bis
crops grow and increaso in value ; even
Providence works with him assisting
him with warm sunshine and with In
vigorating, refrosbing showers of rain.
The farmer breathes, each day of bis
lile, wholesomo air, drinks pure water,
eats the products of his own Holds, and
clothes himself with tho warm flecco
of bis flocks. Ho truly rests "under
his own vine und fig tree" and need
fear no man. Out, too, of this business
of farming, comes tho wealth wbicb
crcatoa what aro tormcd "good times"
and replaces again the destruction
caused by war.
The present revival of business is an
example of what farming can do for a
country. Tho selling by our farmors
during the current "harvest yoar" of
at least t 100,000,000 north ol tbo sin
gle farm product of wheat to Kngland,
Iroland, and Scotland, shows how val
uablo our farms are, and teachos us to
rightly realize tho truthfulness and
lorcihlcncss of tho saying that be wbo
makes two blades of grass grow whero
ono grow beforo is a greater benefactor
of mankind than any of the ambitious
millitaiy heroes that havo over lived
upon tho face of tho earth. The farm
ers of tho United States are doing their
wholo duly toward restoring our Na
tional prosperity and all tbat is poo;
needed is wise legislation, founded up
on tho Dcmocratio system of self gov
ernment, to muko us the most prosper
ous country on tho globe. If our farm
ers will only steadily support the wise
principles of Government incorporated
in tbo Constitution by tho revolution
ary fathers our character, gs a free
nation will be nobly and worthily de
veloped, and to our futuro progress in
wealth and power tbero will practical
ly bo no limit.
Now sinco to farming in the great
est measure is due the fact that gold
from foreign hinds is reaching us in
large quantities, then it follows that
whatever encourages and prooiolos
farming is deserving of liberal patron
age. Hence it is that our local County
Fairs cannot be too highly valued as
a means ol nromotintf a"ricultnrn iirwl
thereby increasing our resources, stitn.
ulating our manufacturing industries,
adding to our wealth as a poople in
many ways. At a County Fair tho
farmors ol different townships are
brongbt in competition with each other,
and are enabled to see for themselves
tbo great improvements which aro
made lu Btock, in farming implements,
etc, and can also soo the marked su
pcriority of the products of an indus
trious, thoughtful furmer ovor thoso
who bave not deemed it worth while
to expend tho same caro and labor in
their farm work. This is educating
farmers rightly. This gives them a
proper conception of their great calling
and demonstrates to them that their
pursuit does not wholly consist in more-
ly plowing each year so much ground
and in sowing so much soed. Our
peoplo should now by thoir generous
patrongo endeavor to make our Coun
ty Fair prosperous, in erdor that our
County Agricultural Socioty may bo
tbo bettor enabled to moot the increas
ing demands of our peoplo as thoy aro
annually being educated utto higher
views regarding tho oouupation of
farming and its kindrod pursuits. The
time is now close at band when
our County Fair will bo held. It will
well repay the larmors of Clearfield
county to take a lively intorest in its
success end to encourago it by their
Good. A brothorof Sonator Blaine,
still more Radical than tho Senealor,
has held the position of Suporintcdent
of tho Senate. Document Room for
many yoar. As no man by the namo
of Blaine appears on the War records
during "the irrepressible conflict," tho
Democrats have removed Superintend
ent Blaine, and put soldier in bis
place. Oh, dear) but it has made
tbo Senator from Maino and bis broth
er mad I The Copperheads and Con
federate Brigadiora will now catch
Hail Columbia from those two brothers
who holpod to "crush tho Rebellion"
in the Sutler and Quartormaster de
partment!. For truo domagoguism or
a sun stroke, give ui a Blaine I
Newspaper Marriage. Nothing
baa occurred recently that pleases us
so much as the marriage of the True
Democrat and tbo Sentinel, of Lewis
town, This union will go farther to
destroy rival factions and build up tho
Democracy of Mifflin county than all
else that could be done. Two organs
in a county, especially in a small coun
ty, produce about tho samo confusion
politically that two wivps would in
ono household. Two mothers In one
family always render that family un
happy. 1 1 is just so where two news
paper! in the samo county are rccog
nited as organs.
Those Cirmas How annoying
thoy soem to be to the organs! The
New York Tribune, baving stolen an
other cipher dispatch, announces that
Mr. Tilden bu sent 115,000 into Ohio
to help Ewing. On tha strength of
this false report the Republican man
agers will blood John Shormsn sfrosh
and probably skin the New York banks
to the extent of $25,000.
THE NEXT SESSION.
The next session of Congress being
what is called tbo long session, says
tho Washington Putt, ainplo timo will
be had fur tho dome of all needful
work with sufficient caro. There will
bo do Kepuhhean Semite to contend
tor oxtravagant appropriation!. Tho
Democracy will ho held responsible lor
tho amounts appropriated, although
Republican ofllcials collect and dixburso
tho revenues. Thcro is undoubtedly
room for agood deal of saving without
impairing the efficiency of any branch
of the service. While the heads ol de
partments are preparing their esti
mates, it will bo well for them to bear
in mind that they will be suhjeotcd to
the most rigid scrutiny, and that, when
cut down by tho Houso, thoy will not
be built up again in tho Sonitto. In
most of tho departments there are
numerous sinecures that ought to
be abolished. In all tho depart
ments there are abuses that do
mand reform. As we have heretofore
atatod, ono of tho most prolific soureos
of corruption and publio robbery is tho
custom of buying goods from profes
sional contractors instead of dealing
with manufacturers, importers and reg
It is not a difficult thing for a ring
Department official to so thoroughly
disgust reputable manufacturers and
jobbers that they will bo glad to koep
aloof. Whon a legitimate dealer has
his wares, although furuishod accord
ing to contract, thrown back on bis
hands on frivolous pretexts, ho becomes
discouraged. When this has been done
two or thrce'times he retires from tho
field disgusted. 11 is next Blcp is to
soil an inferior article, for tho same
prico, to a contractor, who re sells to
tho Government, dividing a margin
betweon the official ring and himself.
This is the old, old story of robbery
that is being repeated every month.
This is why so many men grow rich
on salaries baroly sufficient to support
themselves and families. We confi
dently assort that this system for it
has boon reduced to a regular systom

THE UTES AND TIIF.IR (1R1F.VAKCES.
Tho Utos, of Colorado, havo been
giving more or less trouble for threo
years pajt, and these were grave lears
of an outbroak in tho Full of 187G, in
which it was expected that tho wholo
tribe ol L ies, Bomo a,U() in number,
would join, ticncral Hatch, however,
had siit'li a largo and wcl disposed
forcp under his command at the time
that tho Indians were deterred from
attempling an ontbrouk. Last year a
commission consisting of ex Senator
Lot M. Morrill, ol Maine, Juul'O M l ur-
land and General Hatch vinted their
country wltb tho view ol arranging
for the consolidation of nil tho I'tc
bands into one, to be located on a new
reservation on or near tho Wliito river.
The negotiations wero successful, and
about tho prut of lh'" year a dplcga
tion from tho tribe visited Washing
ton, whero they confirmed tho agree
ment 1 ho new reservation contains
about 250,000 acres, and It much
nearer railroad facilities than the old,
rendering the transportation of sup
lilies more expeditious and less expen
sive. Under tho agreement, 1,894,000
acres formury occupied by the diner-
aim alter deducting expenses the re
ceipts wero to be invested in 4 per
cent. LJnited Mates bonds lor tho ad
vancement and welfare of tho Indikns.
Tbo remalndor of the land formerly
occupied by them is to be treated and
disposed of as other portions of the
The Utos are a warlike tribe, and
Oeneral Hatch speaks of them as the
most dangerous and villainous ol all
the Indians in tho west, the bost of
fighters and tho most ingenious of
strategists. Tho Interior Department
has accordingly done all it could to
conciliate them, but apparently with
out success. Tho pntiro tribe num
bers, according to tho Indian bureau
census, 3,800 persons, divided into the
Southern Utcs of U00, tho Los Pinos
Utos of 2,100, and the Whito River
U'les of 800. It is Iho latter who have
goue on tha warpath, or rather who
are now known to bo in arms, whilo
tbo causes which havo incited them to
rebellion against tbo Government op
ply equally to the Utcs in tho lower
part of the reservation, and they too
may movo against too whites in south
Tbo causa of the present outbreak,
it is asserted in Washington, is not a
scarcity ol provisions, a want ol cloth
ing, or tho payment of annuities, nor
even unkind treatment by the Indian
agent, but it is tho non-fulfillment of
promises mado by the liovernment,
empowered to negotiate for tho cession
ol certain portions of their old reser
vation, relerrcd to above, and tho In
vasion of other portions by prospco
tors, so that tbo fear of being crowded
lo doath without any bone ol Justice,
bus impelled them to toko up arms In
dolense ol their homes.
Ever since tho Summer of 187" Iho
Whito Rivor resorvo has boon visited
continually by parties ol whito men
locking sottloinont and prospecting for
gold. Tho agent has succeeded, un to
theprcsont year, in sending most of
tbcso unlawlul visitors away, hut their
visits have been a sourco of constant
irritation to the Utcs, nd tho tribo
has burned down many Bottlers' cabins
and sot tiro to tho grass and sago
brush frequently to smoke out hunters
and niipcrs tn token ol thoir annoy
On the 8tb of September, Agent
Meeker reported that a few of tho
Utos had insisted that ho should dis
continue the ploughing of a certain
pieco of land which they wanted for
the paslurago of ponies. As It was
near the agency, and was Iho most
availablo tract lor an agency farm,
and as tbero was abundant pasturage
elsowhore for Indian herds, bo continu
ed tho work of cultivation, after prom
ising to remove tho tents and corrals
placed thcro by the Indians to another
suitabo locality. Moreover, had be
givon notico when tho Indians began
thoir building of corralal here that tho
placo would soon bo required for farm
ing. The Indians persisted, and they
fired on tho plouirhmnn. Tho atront
called a council, which resulted finally
in a roiumaiii consent on mo pari ol
mo inuians to nave me worn proceed
A few day! later, Aifont Mcekor was
assaulted by a loading ohief, Johnson,
and lorocd cut oi bis own bouse and
injured badly, but was rescued by his
omployes. Agent Meeker feared thai
his lilo was in danger, and ho asked
for troops to arrest the turbulent In
dians and enforce order on the reser
vation. The npecssary orders woro
issued by that Department on the lflth
of September. Major Tbornburgh was
orderod to the White Rivor agoncy,
and it was during his march thither
that he was attacked by a powerful
and well armed forco of tho Utcs.

LET US I1A VE Mil.
There aro a few fuels in connection
with tho (irunt era thut greatly aug
ment Iho denire of the Democratic
parly to havo the ex President nomi
nated for a third term. When (irnnt
came into office bis party had a majori
ty of 103 in tho Ilouse. Before he
went out that majority had dinspn-ur-ed,
und, in its place, there was a Dem
ocratic majority of 81. This immense
Democratic gain was largely duo to
tho third-term movement in 1874.
These figures inspire ugucious Demo
crats with an earnest wish that the
Grunt movement, muy result in his
nomination. But the same fuels con
vinco tho prudent Radical leaders that
bo is not the man fur tho occasion. In
the States that are expected lo furnish
electoral votes lor the Republican can
didate thcro is no indication that tho
managers arc Grant meu- His strength
now, as heretofore, is in those States
where his party is in hopeless minori
ty. Missouri and Kentucky havo done
tho most lusty screaming for another
term of Grant. Thero isa deep seated
conviction that no man, however pop
ular, can bo elected lor iho third lime
to tho Presidential office It is the
opinion of many of the most intelligent
men of both parties that if Grant's
Administration hud been as remarka
ble for purity as it was for corruption,
if bo bad been the wisest and bost man
who had evei tilled that exalted sta
tion, instead of g'ving the country the
most dishonest ind degrading Admin
istration il hudicvcr known, ho would
still bo doomed to defeat in an attempt
to violato a precedent that is regarded
as littlo less than i-acrci1. As the
third-term organs continue to violute
decency and propriety by claiming the
nonpartisan welcome extended lo tho
Gencrul in Calforuia as a phaso of
"the boom," wc aro fairly called upon
to treat him, not perhaps as a candi
date urging liii own claims, but cor
luiuly as a nun who is obtrusively
paraded as a candidate, and who has
not entirely discouraged eucli efforts
The cx-PrcsUent, under whoso Ad
ministration t io Republican party was

bo an acceptable Republican candidate
