The Changes in the:-Anifilar General,

To-day, the legal term of Eervice of the heads

We cannot permit the heads of these,differen
departments to retire, without thanking them,
in the name of the people, for the able and
faithful manner - in which they have, discharged
their several duties.
Hon. Thomas E Cochran; Auditor General,
WI had a laborious, delicate and important
term. With, the breaking out of the, war, his
labors of course increased as the expenses of the
Common'wealth were augmented. But with a
zeal that Stopped befote'no obstacles, he recr
ganised, as it were, the entire routihe of bud
'tees in his department ; so that with its increased
duties those engaged as clerks were afferdixi

thus faithfully guarded. Mr. Cochran will, be
succeeded by Isaac Sleeker, of Union county:;

elected AnSitor General is to hope that he will

in mere words. He has managed the• State

treasury of the State, but so ,arretting our

The vituperative portion of that synopsis w,t4

in order to satisfy ourselves as to the correct

starless midnight of the mind,) my whole efforts

.- rr We leave the Tory Organ to the digestion of
the aikvie r as a lair sample of the feelings which

humble men in the ranks of the - Union Republi

distil their venom through they columns 11 that

incurring any of the punishments provided for
those guilty of treason.
Who Was isirisvor of Compromise.
_ The political enemies of the Republican party
have made it a standing charge that it was op.
posed to a fair compromise of the d'fferences
!Sting at the outbreak of the rebellion, and is
iheiefore responsible for the war. It matters
not that the leaders among the rebels have
themselves exploded-,the accusation repeatedly
and effectually by declaring that at, the time
they wanted ntiedinpromiie,Whuld have entered,
linto none ; in fact, that if' a blank sheet of pa
, Per had been offered them upon which to write
Aheir owe conditions, they would , have rejected .
ii,theC'harge his been reiterated as often as
opportunity has effer4. IA view of this fact,
David Dudley.Fieldi.of :New York, has recent
ly done an excelleut thing, in the effectual ex
14es .the falsity of the accusation alluded to.
He .was a member of the Peace Congress that
•niet;in Washington city in. February, 1861,:
from l thichationg hopes of some accommoda
tiompihickwonld avert war were at one time
entertained, and his afateraeats go to the pro.
ceedings of that body, which was compbsed of
representatives from rather the more conserva
elements of the South. If anything like
a . reasonable adjustmentof.differences were pos
sible, it is fair to infer that it could have Seen
bad there—at least so far as the disposition of
the South was favorable to it. Mr. Field first
submitted the following :
' 'The Union , of thtt States under the Consti
tution isindissoluble; and no Suite •can secede
frowthe Union; or nullify an: act of Congress,
Or absolve its rcitizens from their, paramount
Obligation of obrdienca to the Constitution and
laws of the United States."
This was laid on the table by the majority
kr. Fieldthen proposed the following : .
•uit is believed to be. the true intent and
meaning of the present Constitutiou that the
Union .of r the States, under it, is indissoinble,
This was rejected by the "Coneervatives.".
Governor Boger S. Baldwin,. (Republican,) of
glonnectieut , ,uthen-submitted the following:
" 41 *.githaili,,Unnappy differences exist which

Hunter of Virginia, Green of Missouri, and
Lane of ,Oregon, denounced it,; and when it
was put to the vote, only three Benators out of
thirty-seven gave their voices in its favor. In
the House its fate was scarcely 'better. This
sheicart conclusively how far the Republicans, or
in fact any party of the North, were responsible
for a failure to compromise at the time the war
of dissdlation began.

DRAKE'S PA LENT CHURN' POWER!!
Patented July 8, 1862.
A NUCH lat:or "and. ingenuity have been ex
j.YJLpended in efforts to reduce the labor, time
and tronble of chin ning milk and cream to pro
duce butter. The old method of churning by
handr equirei so much time and labor that resort
has been had to various machines propelled by
dogs, sheep, calves, &c. for the purpose • of sav
ing this time and labor. But the nwonve
nit= and 'unpkasanfsters arising from the pee of
these animals as a propelling power are such as
to render Any improvement which will obviate
the necessity of their use a great desideratum.
After placing the milk in the churn, it is
only'becteasary to wind inp the weight by mans
of the crank, which can 66 done in from two
to three minutes, and the machine will run
thirtY minutes without re-vtioding, when, if
thb churning is not finished, it can be re -wound.
I .This l power can be so regulate.! as to propel a
Chu any size, Trom one quarter of a barrel
out any change in the machinery, a
child from eight to ten years of age, can, by
means of a lever atkached to the fly-wheel, re
verse the motion, *dud np the machine in ten
minutes, churning at the same time with-a
barrel churn; and then, by letting go the lever,
the motion again reverses, and-the weight runs
down, continuing . the operation for twenty
minutes lger at a slower rate, thus fi nishing
tho churnnig ond gathering the butter in , the
The grand-object of all machinery is to save
time, iiisd the proprietor of-this Machine claims
glint superiority for it in this respect. Mowing
machines and Ahreshing machines will save
from Orietundredto two hundred per cent. in
time,-while this machine will Have from twdvs
'hundred to fourtrea hundred per cent.,as will be
- seen` by 'a simple , •arithmetical cal culation on

ent ways : ~,..., , ~,,,
let. By. means of a= crank to wind.
2nd. By a lever attached...to a fly-wheel,
which winds and churns at the same time.
3d.. By's leaver at fly-wheal without winding
or weight. .. • • ,
1 The machine is so constructed that it
occupies a space of only four feet by tw) feet,
and. is placed in the room where the churning
is done; and it is frequently.. the.case that
"washing is done in the samerootn. In allsnch
'easesit can be used also to pound out clothes,
which is a much moreeconomlcal mode of wash
