THURSDAY EVENING, JAN. 22, 1880.
The Dickens Reaction.
There is an evident reaction of feeling
about Dickens, as there was about Scott
a reaction which in the case of Scott, is
only new subsiding. The Dickens reaction
dates from the publication of his life by
Mr. Fester, and it has been hastened by
the recent issue of his letters. Desnite
Chuzzlevcit and the American Notes, the ad
miration of Dickens seemed never te fla,r
in this country, and with characteristic ai"
der the feeling of his genius was extended
te his personality. Of this, however, lie
was nevei aware, as is curiously shown by
an interchange of notes between 3Ir. Dick
ens and Mr. Delanc, the late editor of the
Londen Times. Mr. Jennings, who was
the former editor of the New Yerk Times,
and who is new the Londen correspondent
of the World, was professionally a pupil of
Mr. Delane, and was trained upon the
Times. Upen a visit te England in 1807
Mr. Jennings was told by Mr. Delanc that
Mr. Dickens delincd te go te America te
read because he feared he might be "tarred
and feathered," or leceive some equally
impiessive mark of American disfavor.
Mr. Jennings laughed, and replied that
Mr. Dickens had a droll misconception of
his American popularity ; that no author
was se universally known and quoted and
iikcu ; uias even xiie ieies ami uiaizzleicit
were net excluded ; and that he might be
sure of a hearty welcome. A few days
afterward he received a note from Mr. De
lane, who said that the conversation about
Dickens had resulted in the note that he
enclosed, which was a note from Dickens
stating that what Mr. Jennings had said,
as repertad te him by Mr. Delanc, had led
him te decide te come te America, and he
had telegraphed accordingly.
The extraordinary popularity of his read
ings here, the singularly courteous and
friendly tone of the press, the manner in
which his desire of personal seclusion dur
ing his visit was respected, and the warmth
of the farewell dinner of the press te him
at Delmenico's, must have shown him that
the surprise and even resentment which
had been felt after his return home from
"his early visit were net se great as our ad
miratien ler ins genius. Indeed, except
for his deep conviction of this fact he
would have hardly appeared at the dinner,
for he was suilerinir severely and could
walk only with great difficulty, when at
last, after an hours delay, he came into
the room with Mr. Greeley, who presided.
The kind of lecantatien of his old opinions
which he made in his speech at the dinner
was both touching and graceful, and his
final readings two evenings afterwards at
Steinway hall was very pathetic. The rea
son of the reaction probably is the convic
tion that he was net the man wc supposed
him te be, and this was first made appar
ent in the Life by Mr. Ferster. This
showed a man wholly interested in himself
ami secmmgiy valuing men ami tilings
mainly as they enabled him te display him
self. Undoubtedly this must be said with
reservation, because of the extraordinary
exhuberance of his expression. Whoever
read the Christmas stories, or the tale of
Little Xell, or of Paul Dombey, felt that
the writer must be a man of singular sin
cerity and generosity of heart: simple and
earnest and gentle. There is no doubt of
his own interest in his work, and he tie
scribes himself as suffering with the suf
fering of his characters, as he was engaged
in writing the stories. But the impression
of the writer which the writings produce is
net justified by further knowledge. How
ever delightful a companion, however ex
hiliarating his spirits, however flowing his
humor, it is another man than the reader
supposed. It is no fault of his. He is net
te be blamed that he is himself ; but the-e
are te be pitied who had expected some
thing else, and who, acknowledging the
genius, regret what seems te them inade
quate character, because it is net genius,
but character which tests the man him
self. There was something of the same kind
of leehng even about Scott a conviction
that it was unworthy of such a man te care
se much for a toy castle, and te suffer him
self te be entangled for its sake in such
terrible toils. Nothing, indeed, could have
been nobler than his heroic self-sacrifice te
retrieve his own fortunes and te save
ethers. It is one of the tragedies of liter
ature, and moves an infinite pity, like the
sorrows of Lear. But it is net the kind of
feeliiig that we wish te associate with that
great and sunny genius. The distinction,
indeed, between the man and his genius is
old enough. It is net revealed for the first
time cither in Scott or in Dickens. It is
net pleasant te see a man of great genius
like Dickens, whose works had made him
justly famous and rich, grasping for mere
money, and dying of excitement and over
work. Might net his own life teach the
lessen of his books ? is the natural and
sorrowful question of the reluctant reader.
Were all these fine pictures unreal, all this
fine feeling really unfelt ? Was he an actor
only, whom he had thought siucere. and is
the sly limner of the bottle-green Itriarch
himself such a figure.
All reaction is unjust and extreme, yet
much of the picsent feeling about Dick
ens is net new awakened for the first time :
it is only freely expressed. The kind of
extravagance and caricature which many
readers have always perceived iu the Dick
ens books has constantly withheld their
smpathy, and it is because the later light
seems te reveal the same thing in the man
that they new new feel their impression
te be justified. But a reaction which is
personal, although it may for a time
affect the estimate of an author's works,
will necessarily pass like a cloud from the
moon. The Antiquary, and Old Jferlaliti,
and the Heart of Jlid-Lethian, and The
Bride of Lammermoer, like the great
pictures and temples, stand upon their
own merits. The depthless tenderness of
the Madenna della Seggiela is net touched
by the knowledge that Raphael may have
loved and left the Fornarina, nor is the
superb and massive grace of the Parthe Parthe
eon harmed by any vanity or avarice of
the architect. It is very possible that the
immense popularity of Dickens will net
continue,and that extravagance which was
agreeable te the humor of his own time
may net be relished by a later taste.
Perhaps his figures like some of
Scott's and Fielding's, will net prove
te be immortal, and it may be his books
will go with Madame de Scudery's. But
it is net easy te imagine an England that
would net delight in the Christmas Chimes,
that would net laugh ever Pickwick, and
acknowledge the power of David Copper
field. Perhaps there is net one of his
characters that stands quite squarely upon
his feet, like Parson Adams, or the anti
quary, or Colonel Newceme, and which is
net in some way overdone. But if they at
last lese their held, it will be because of
their own demerit, net of any personal
disappointment in their author. That
weultl ellect only these of his contemporaries-who
had instinctively identified him
with his work, and who have unconscious
ly attributed te the author all the virtues
and powers which they have admired in
It is an old sophistry that the virtue is
te be judged by the preacher. His duty,
indeed, is that of all men, te take care,
without evasion or excuse, te de the best
that he can. But if nobody should exhort
te perfection who is net himself perfect,
nor .te truth-telling who has net always
avoided even the appearance of prevarica
tion, wl-e could exhort? There is a little
disillusion proceeding in regard te Dickens.
He was much taken up with himself, nis
life and his ideas were, perhaps, uet sim
ple and elevated. He had possibly a
certain trick or knack of pathos and hu
mor. We de net pass from his books te
his life, and back from his life te his books
upon that serene level which the imagina
tion demands. Yet is The Tale of Tice Cities
any the less one of the most pow
erful pictures of a tragical time,
or is the horsemanship of Mr. Win
kle or the sliding en the ice at Dingley
Dell less delightfully droll? Even if
Dickens without his genius might have
been a commonplace, self-involved man,
of a character net winning or inspiring,
yet his genius makes him, like all the true
poets and story-tellers, a benefactor of his
kind. It is the Dickens of Nicktiby and Cop Cep
pcrfield, net of Ferster's Life and the
Dickens letters, with whom wc are all
really concerned ; the Dickens who has se
long filled the mind of this generation
with pleasant fancies, and its heart with
generous emotions ; who has quickened
the hand of charity, and deepened and
broadened the range of sympathy with
suffering and sorrow ; who. as Thackeray
said, has lighted huge Christmas fires, and
kindled a true Christmas feeling this is
the Dickens, and net the wearer of extra
ordinary coats and waistcoats and cravats
and jewelry, or the correspondent who
thought Mr. Stanten a man of extraordi
nary memory, who could quote any pass
age from "my books," of the student of
the scenic effects of his own exertions, in
whom the world is really interested. The
reaction may re-adjust his place, but it
will net obliterate it. Editor's Easy

te see the old modes of catching rats, trav
elling through the papers all ever the

and by which premises are te be kept en

Although the flourishing expert trade in
American live-stock has been destroyed,
ey me measures adopted 111 Europe te
guard against the introduction of stock
infected with the cattle and swine diseases
that have caused se much discussion, the
enormous flecks and herds of live-stock in
all parts of the vast interior of this repub
lic remain sources of cxhaustlcss trade and
wealth when utilized in ether ways. This
is seen in the rapid growth of the experts
of previsions, hides, leather and ether ar
ticles derived from the same animals. In
cured meats, the expert trade of the
United States is limited only by the ca
pacity of the foreign markets. In these
articles the prohibitory measures adopted
in Europe arc wholly inoperative. In the
countries of the Old World, where meat meat
feed has been uncommon with the working-classes
of the people, the cheapness
and inexhaustible supply of American pre
visions lias put witiun reach of the
humblest peasant and factory-hand the
substantial meat required te furnish the
physical health and strength demanded
for daily toil. Thus, while the prevalent
idea seems te be that the main business of
American farmers is te raise grain crops
te furnish Europe with bread, our farmers
are at the same time making even mere
headway in getting command of the great
prevision markets of the Old World and
furnishing nutritious and wholesome feed
for the toiling millions who otherwise
would be suil'ering from want of it.
The Sprinjj Auction Sales.
The columns of many of the rural papers
will seen be teeming with farm auction
sales, and hundreds will be en the lookout
for their annual spring bargains. Very
few appreciate the value of these sales as a
legitimate part of farm economy. Our ag
ricultural literature is filled with treatises
en farm profits. This crop or the ether,
this mode of farm management or that,
little else is ever suggested as an item of
farm profit. But te make money at agri
culture requires the same qualifications as
it docs in the counting-house. One must
net only be familiar with the most im
proved methods of culture, but knew hew
te buy and sell.
The true character of the money-making
farmer comes out at a spring vendue. The
peer farmer one who is and always will
be peer buys the cheap things. Wc can
not tell who does read the Telegraph by
simply looking at the bidders at these sales,
but we always knew who does net. There
is the man who buys for fifty cents an arti
cle which costs new one dollar. He puts
it in thorough repair at an expense of per
haps seventy-five cents, and even then it
gives out within half the time a new one
docs. We knew well he is net one of our
leaders. Anether also buys net perhaps
an old article, but one well used. He sees
that the use has rather been a test of
strength than an injury. It is really as
geed as new, and he buys it at half the
original cost. He has really made one
hundred per cent., as well as if he had
made two blades of grass te grew at the
same expense and where only one grew
Wc like te attend these sales and see
"hew things go." We can sec here the
human natureef farm-life in au entirely
distinct phase from that of evcry-day life.
It is a capital school for the young farmer.
At the same time it is one fraught with
danger. Like the hard treatment of
young Indian life, the weak ones arc
killed by it as we have often given warn
ing while the stronger ones may be ren
dered stronger than ever.
A College Via g.
In a certain college tin dcr Presbyterian
auspices, net a hundred miles from New
Yerk, it is a rule that the students shall
attend church at least once each Sunday
either in the college chapel or some church
in town which they shall designate, and
for non-attendance satisfactory reasons
must be given. Of course en Monday
mornings, when these reasons are called
for, much ingenuity and some fun are
brought out. In one of these interviews
Prof. L asked a student, "Mr. C ,
where did you attend church, yesterday ?"
Mr. C plied, "The First Church.
The professor looking a little surprised,
said, "Are you net aware, Mr. C , that
there was no scvice at the First Church
This was a poser, but was coolly met by,
" I mean, professor, the first church I came
A general laugh followed, and somehow
the young gentleman get rescued.
Recent Improvement in the Breeding of
r rem the earliest tunes te the present
day it has been a great misfortune and less
te mankind that se little attention has been
paid te the breeding and rearing of a mere
perfect and powerful race of horses for
heavy farm and read work, and the use of
the city dray and large express and truck
wagon. Peets, from the sublime Jeb down
te the high-spirited Byren, have been pro
fuse in their descriptions and praises of the
horse for war, the chase, and the course ;
while historians, travellers and sportsmen
have ever been eloquent ever them in vol
umes of prose. Strange that the most gen
erally useful of all the different breeds of
horses should, with few exceptions, be
ignored and passed by in silence, and se
much be written and spoken of ethers
which, although requisite for special pur
poses and worthy of high admiration, have
contributed less te the benefit of human
ity. But fortunately a great change in
this respect has taken place within the
past few years in Europe as well as in
A numerous society, composed of noble
men, the landed gentry, and farmers of
Scotland, has recently been formed for the
purpose of improving the breed of their
larger sort of horses. This society takes
the name of Clydesdale, and that distin
guished nobleman Earl Dunmore has been
devoting a considerable part of his time
during the past two years te editing a
stud book of their horses, classed also as
Clydesdale. The first volume of this has
already been published, and the matter for
the second is collecting. England is new
zealously following the laudable example
set her by Scotland for what has long been
known as the Shire and ether of her best
large breeds of horses. The Prince of
Wales, Earl Ellesmerc and ether noble
men are giving no little attention te the
getting out of their stud book, and the
whole landed interest of the United King
dom is fast waking up te the importance
of improvement of the most useful of all
their breeds of horses.
Within the past three years 200 te 1,000
guineas ($1,000 te 6.1,000) has been the com
mon price in great Britain for select heavy
horses for breeding purposes, and even
1,300 guineas ($7,300) has been refused for
a few of the very choicest, while 50 te 80
guineas ($230 te $400) is the ordinary
price of these for farm and dray work
alone. In France, Belgium, Helland, and
a few districts of Northern Germany,
prices have also advanced considerably,
and greater attention is given than former
ly te the improvement of their horses, all
of which shows the rapidly increased
interest in the subject abroad. Ner has
this matter been neglected in America,
particularly in the past four years, during
which large numbers of powerful heavy
animals have been imported into Canada
and the United States from Great Britain
and France, with a few also from Flanders.
The Clydesdale breed has been mere
generally preferred for Canada, while the
Percheren and Nerman have taken prece
dence in our own country.
Fer the Percheren and Nerman in Amer
ica a Stud book was published in 1877, by
Mr. J. 1 1. Sanders, of Chicago, III. A re
vised edition followed the next year, of 212
large octave pages, handsomely get up
with numerous line engravings. The ob
ject of this Stud book is te preserve an ac
curate record of the males and females im
ported from France and their full-bred de
scendants, se that the public may net be
imposed upon hereafter by unprincipled
dealers palming off their inferior grades
for full-breds. A. A. Allen, in Harper's
