FRIDAT, DECEMBER 25, 1808
Tbe latest dispatches regarding tbe
Eastern question represent tbe Greek Gov
ernment as King more disposed toAisten to
the protests of the other European jpojwrs
than heretofore. The popular feeling
against Turkey is said to have forced tbe
Greek authorities into tho position they
pow occupy, This warlike sentiment is
undergoing -a chango, n,nd it is thought
that i;' the Sultao wjll .grant lime for fur
ther negotiation war rfiuyr.be averted. The
report that Russia hod sett,to Prussia an
unfavorable note xccatdiug he Kas'ero

TnE Columbus Cr!i, a leading Demo
cratic paper in Ohio, has an article layiiu
down the basis for the reconstruction of the
Democratic party. It is to cancel tbe
bonds, .abclish ,the legal tender., abolish the
banks, abolish the tariff, abolish ail internal
revenue duties, ana support the govern
me.it by a direct tax levied on the property
of tbe country. It declares the previous
;uonotary and financial schemes of the
Democratic party all wrong, and that the
only way to restoration ,?f tbe party is by
coming back to these true Democratic
principles. And la vdejv of tV'ir advent
it declares it the duty of tho pros of the
country to warn tbe widows and orphans
and poor people ot tbe country
to disposo of all the bonds in their
posession, for " repudiation is inevitable."
This is Democracy simmered down to what
in practice it would have shown itself to
be. Only the defeat of Seymour and Blair

Fowls in the Horse Stable. Fowls
should never be permitted to have access
to the horse stable, nor the feed room, nor
the hay-mow, 1 heir roost shon'.d been,
tirely separate from the sUble, so that they
rnay not always be ready to slip in when
ever a door is opened, and that the vermin
whioh invest poultry may not reach
horses or cattle. It is a well known fact
that fowls of all kinds frequently drop a
very sordid, offensive, viscious odor, and
when allowed to go on the hay mow, or iu
the feeding room, or anywhere in the barn,
they damage more fodder than we are
Font to suppose We would as soon allow
fowls to live in the kitchen, and hop on
the dinner table while we are eating, and
to roost on in beadstead, as 4o have free
access to tho horscstable and bain. Some
horses are always afraid of fowl,, and when
cue enters the manger, or rack, the timid
hordes will immediately surrender their
entire right, however hungry they might
be, to those lawless marauders Exchange.
