Defence of HosoccopathY.
Mn. Eorron:— , About a month ago, it be
came known to a few in this city, that a sett
of resolutions were passed at a meeting of
the State Medical Society at Pittsburgh ;
whieh,according to the testimony ofone ofonr
leading allopathic physicians, originated in
the Erie County Medical Association in this'
'city. The resolutions were as follows:
"Dr. Stewart, of Erie, offered the following
resolutions, which were received and read :
"WIIEREAR, It is alleged that the corpora
tors of Certain medical and surgical institn
lions endowed by this State, ate about to
give position and. authority in the same, to
irregular practitioners, therefore,
"Awaked, That the small amount of truth,
stolen by bamteopathic and other irregular
practitioners from the true science of medi
cine, is so mingled with a much greater
amount of error, as to be, in our qpinion, a
great evil to the whole people: and that we
cannot in any degree aspirate with or recog
nize Eqpt practitioners,
"iiesalred, That when an attempt is made
by any institution endowed by the State, to
put the treatnient of the sick wholly or par
tinily under the care of homeopathy or
quaeirturv. coo. Aul.riao Oro irrigates ploca
tkmers of the state to use all their influence
to induce the members of Assembly of their
several counties to vote for Feint:dr:the so
dangerous and mischievous a practice, and to
refuse all assistance of the State to such in
stitution while so condtteted.
"The resobition Offered at the morning
session by Dr. Stewart was then called up,
and passed, and copies ordered to be trans
mitted to the Governor, State Secretary' and
members of the State Senate." •
The first impulse VMS to treat a thing so
supremely ridiculous with silent contempt;
then with ridicule, but upon reflection, the
end sought to be attained by them Is of too
grave a nature. and upon it hangs the inter
ests, health and even livesof too many thous
ands of our beat citizens, to be treated light

a body of medical gentlemen as compose the
State Medical Society deliberately and with
out a word of opposition,-call upon the Leg
%lature for aid to compel the people to take
their drugs whether It is their wish 'or not.
The facts in the case are simply as follows :
In The United States alone, there are now en
gaged in attire and remunerative practice,
four thousand hormeopathic physicians, who

some domestic treatise. The calls are re

A-Novel Crime.
On Saturday last, Mr. Samuel Strong, who
lives on Maryland avenue, nine First street,
Washington, complained to Senators Harlan
and Nye and Judge Fh.her, of the workmen
engaged in laying the pavement near his
house, for talking against Congress and using
abusive language. He particularized one In
dividual, whom be atlenvanis identified as
Charles Sorrell, a laborer, and was thereup
on advised to have hint arrested. This was
done by the detectives, Mr. Strong accom
panying. them. The Washington Sunday
Herald contains the fbllowing account of
what then occurred :
At the police headquarters, Mr. Sorrell
statedt before Justice Walter that' before the
day's work had commenced Mr. Strong was
sweeping the Sidewalk` in front of his resi
dence, which bad ,been. recently paved, and
remarked to the workmen assembled that
Congress had finished their labors, haviag
passed the military reconstruction - bill, and
would adjourn at three o'clock. Mr. Sorrell
remarked that "Congress and the Capitol
ought to have been blown up before they
passed it;" whereupon Mr. Strong exclaim
ed, "You are a d—d rebel I will have yon
arrested right away. The Dry Tortugas - is
the place for you, sir." He thought noth
ing more of the language he had used, and
proceeded with his week.
Mr, Strong being sworn, stated that he had
often heard the workmen talk. against COn
gresst and they were engaged at this time in
using abusive language. He also said he
heard the prisoner say, "I wish I could place
fifty barrels of gunpowder under the Capitol,

Sergeant-at-Arms was notified of the threat
ening language that had been used; and he
sent the lieutenant of the Capitol police to
make the complaint.
I spoke to Senators Harlan and Nye, and
also to Judge Fisher, and they, all said I was
perfectly right about it.
The next witness sworn was John E. Rob
erts, connected with the Capitol police, and
formerly an attache of General• Baker's de
tective-force, who told a story about the man
pointing at the Capitol, &e., which - was de

Justice Walter, to the prisoner—You will

free in speaking youffeelings.
Prisoner—Yes, sir; I did not know that it
was any halm to my what I did.
The Justice announced that ho should
hold the prisoner in WO for his appearance
hereafter, whenever he may be wanted, and
also for his good behavior for six months.

Once upon a time theie lived two broth

large, stout, muscular man who looked 'as
though he could whip his weight in wild

fellow, sent by the mother of the two broth

or other, never did have much - affection for

his firm very improperly, that he treated his

when the two brothers met, the subject was
introduced by the big brother, ands dispute
arose between them The dispute soon be

due time, curled in blows. 'Both parties
were engaged and fought like tigers. The
little fellow was tough and spunky, but the

in relation to a certain action of the Cincin
nati Horticultural Society, tuning reference
to a patent lately granted me, for propagating
grape vines from buds, or short cutfts.
I was early Informed of these proceedings,
ai also of Its publication In your paper, but,
being - fully apprised of the fact that the Soci
ety were influenced by, and were acting up
on, information- throbbed them byan parer- -
thy meraber,Aosf residing Its this vicinity,
who, to avoid prosecution for Infringement
upon my rights, had sought the aid of this
honorable body, and procured the passage of
a resolution hostile to my interest, by State
ments and representations 'entirely false and
ridiculously absurd.
This same individual,Mr. John E. Monier,
had opposed iny claim at the Patent Office,
by a similarly false and ilielish - communica
tion, as also by the presentment of other Pa
per- , steed by several individuals interested
In defeating my application fora patent, equal
ly false and malicious.
Perhaps, in justice to myself . I ought to
have replied to this attack, and informed the
readers of the Observer of these facts at an
earlier day, but feeling quite certain that the
Cincinnati Horticultural Society would, on
learning the true state of the case, and the
imposition practised upon them by Mr. Met
tler, rescind their action and fatly exhonorate
me from the aspersions they had thus been
induced to cast upon me, r have chosen to
abide my time.
And now, being furnished by the Secretary
of the Society with the minutes of their lam
meeting, I send you for publication so much
as relates to their former action recording my
patent. Wu. Oitivyrrit:
SATURDAY, July 20.186:.
The Society met as usual—Vice•Ymsident
Sterns in the chair. The reading of the min
utes of the last meeting was postponed. The
following paper was read. by Mr. John A.
Stn. PaEsmErr—ln the resolutions passed
by this Society,- a few weeks ago, We may
have been too hasty, and therefore I beg leave
to present a few remarks to you and to my
fellow members. We then acted under.tbe
representations' that had been made to us
that the Patent Office had granted letters for
the use of mulch in horticulture, which, of
course, appeared very preposterous to us,
and justified our action, and the determina
tion to defend ourselves from any restriction
In the use of mulching Material in our ope
rations. .
It appears that the whole matter was mis
understood,-and now that the merits of the
claim are truly represented and understood,
the matter assumes quite another aspect, and
in justice to ourselves and to the patentee
we should be willing to consider the maiwr
Mr. Griffith claims nothing new of mulch
ing except in its mode and time of applica
tion, and in the manner of its operation on
the cuttings upon which be uses it. „Here he
does seem to have made a discovery, and he
certainlycertainlyp appears to have been eminently
succcssfull in growing grape vines from short
cuttings, even of refractory sorts, which are
planted at once In the open soil, without the
labor and expense of sand beds, flow-pipes,
furnaces, glass, watering, patting, shifting,
hardening off, transplanting and ail the cost
of propagating houses and , their apparanis
and apphances.
If this be true, and no one doubts the suc
cess that has attended his efforts, he ha. 4 cer
tainly made a great advance in the practice of
horticulture, and has a right to protect him
self by .patent, which he has done, after a
thorough investigation of the matter by the
examiners. Of the propriety or good taste
in this proceeding, every horticulturist must
be left to draw his own conclusions and to
have his own opinions; but no good reason
can be advanced why he should not thus pro
tect himself in the use of his discovery.
He writes that he is wiling to submit to
our society to say whether his improvement
is not new and important when we fully un
derstand it He does not wish to interfere
with, nor to ask any special rights guaranteed
claims that Joe method has not been practised
in Cincinnati, nor in any other place, either
in this country or in t nrope, and this, he
hopes will in due time, be recognized by eve
ry member of the society: Ile is anxious
to have an opportunity of proving this to
the society, of showing 'that it is new and
In brief, the cuttings are short, generally of
a stn le joint, with one eye or bud. These
are p lunged into the soil to their full length,
andcovered with three inches of mulch,
which, he claims, retards the starting of the
buds until after the foimation of the callus
- '-and rootlets, by which time the mulch will
hate admitted sufficient heat and some influ
ence to start the buds, which never drop off
. for want of nourishment, as this is abundant
ly ftuaished by the roots that have now
formed a connection with the moist soil.
In presenting this matter, I feel as though
I was performing simply an act of justice to
a worthy man, whose energy, enterprise and
success challenges our admiration.
It was moved by Mr.- Anderson that the
paper be incorporated in the minutes, and
that a committee - of three, of which Dr.

Our Taxes and Who Pay Them.
From the New York World.'
_'Fite following exhibit of the financial di
lemma of the State and the country, and of
the Influence of-the preSent system of taxa
tion, was recently presented by a Republi
can member of the New York State Assem
bly :
' Can it do any harm to remember that our
national debt is twenty-seven thousand mil
lions of dollars t Of this, at least one-sixth,
or four hundred and fifty millions, must be
paid by this State. The State is now paying
to the national government not less than sev
enty or eighty millions of i dollars a year in
direct taxes. The State-debt is over seventy
tiVe millions more. In view of our.share of
the national debt, the State debt fails to im
press us as it ointht. Years ago, a State debt
of forty millions startled the people ; and the
watchword went ,forth, stop and pay. On
this very day New York is bonded tor five
hundred and seventy-six millions of dollars
of debt; more than one-third of the whole

the interest on this amount, and must provide
for the redemption of the principal- The
debt is wholly by reason of the cause for
which it was Incurred, and the people accept
it as a debt of honor in the highest sense.
But It is still a debt. The interest comes out
of their earnings and their savings, and the
principal must one day Increase their labors
or diminish their comforts. This Is no dis
tant danger. The fact stares us In the face
that we have entered upon the era of reduc
don of values. The gold dollar is worth $1.35
in paper, or rather the paper dollar is worth
seventy-four cents in gold. The margin of
difference—twenty-six per cent —is oozing
away out of every fortune, out of-values gen
erally. It may be in a few months, it may be
in a couple of years, bat sooner or later, a
share of the values in this State, estimated in
money, not far front that margin, Is to—

John A. Loden, of Illinois, is one of the
vilest defamers of the Democratic party -in
,Ccingress, and one of the bitterest of the
Radio:ilk He led off in the exclusion of the
Kentucky Ilepresentatives on the charge
of disloyalty during the. war. The Illinois
papers are publishing the following upon
Slak.of Illinois,County of Gallatin, as: '
Wm. M. Dav i s, of the town of Equality, in
the county anti State aforesaid, being sworn,
says that on the 25th day of May, A:D.,1861,
I left Williamson county, under Captain D.
Brooks, for the army of the Confederate
States, and did join that army and was badly
wounded at the battle of Shtloh ; and furth
er state that I went to that army by and Un

When Logan spoke •at Carbondal , last
week, his mother and sisters were nt.
In the course of his speech he den - that he
had ever given any one money to enter the,
rebel service: whereupon his sister, Mrs.
Blanchard, remarked, " That's a lie, John ;
you gave money to my husband to go into
the rebel army." A- little later Logan de
nied that he ever was inlavor of the rebels ;
to which his mother replied, "That's a lie.
John !"
The lifgaldngton correspondent of the Cin
cinnati Commercial (Republican) tells how
Logan became an enemy of the President's :
"Philosophers have in all ages been puz
zled to account for the remarkable changes
that have taken place in men's' minds and
opinions on great and . betpatant questions.
Every now and then, smeh - Bab.l was tripped
upon his way to Damascus, a case of sudden
conversion in religion or politics has startled
the world and staggered the theory that con
victions are born with babies. The present
Congress affonts many illustrations of this
character. One of the most insatiate Radi
cals in the House is a member from Illinois.
A little over a year ago he was, as he had
been all his life, a conservatiVe person. He
was the first man to implore the President to
veto the Freedmen's'Bureau Bill. He called
twice at the White House for that purpose,
and being taken sick before the veto was
written, sent a message from his sick bed at
Willard's, repeating his solicitude in this im
portant matter. Soon after this, this same
worthy statesman became the attorney in a
cotton claim amounting to $90,000. (He was
-not then a member of Congress, but he had
been one before and is now.) He had a fee
of $30,000 in thetnatter. He called on the
President at least twenty_ times to get the
claim allowed. ThiPresident examined the
matter and . concluded he had no right to in
terfere in it. It mast be settled by the Secreta
ry of the Treasury, and if he said the demand
ought to be paid, well and good. The con
servative gentleman got Mad at this, and the
result of his distemper was a change of his
political convictions.
"He became a Radical. He went further. A
President, thought he, who . won't let me
make $30,000 is not fit to hold office in this
great Republic, and henceforth I am for isu;
burden of hie, song ever since. Now this
would appear to be a fair subject for the Ju
diciary Committee to inquire into. It comes
legitimately within the general • scope of the
charge that the President stands in the way
of reconstruction, and ought to be removed
as an obstacle. He certainly was an obstacle
to this $30,000 fee, and to prevent a loyal
man from pocketing $30,000 is a -grave' of
Several days-ago a Republican and a Dem
ocrat got into conversation on the subject of
making voters out of negroes. The Repub
lican contended that the negroes should be
allowed as a matter of right. "But,"
replied the Democrat, "that will lead to sociaj
equality." "Let it,"rejoined the Republican,
"the only difference between the negroes and
the whites is in the color of the skin and in
the hair." "Then you think." said the De
mocrat. "that the negroes should have the same
social us well as the same political privilege ,
the whites enjoy." "Certainly," replied the
Republican. "Now, .suppose a negro and
your daughter should conclude to contract
marriage, what would you do in regard to
that ?" asked the Democrat. "Why, I should
queried trio beri - Lk - Vspalali,
not do that. - If my daughter married a ne
gro, I should discard her." replied the Re
publican with spirit. -"What," asked the
Democrat, "discard your daughter for be
lieving and practising the doctrines you
teach? Come, neighbor, don't you think you
are carrying this ne,gra , business too far ? If
there is no difference really between a ne,gro
and a white man, excepting the color . of his
skin and in the matter of hair;:why would
you discard your daughter for marrying %ne
gro instead of a white man?" The Republi
can hung his head thoughtfully..

of our exchanges tells - a story of Commander
Sickles, which ought to make our friend
Pierson grateful that he is not within the
Sickles bailiwick. In Charleston,- as here,
smoking is prohibited in street cars. Gener
al Sickles does not always go abroad in his
four-horse write, and recently he conde
scended to ride with ordinary folks in the
street cars, but he for - ro t to observe the rule,
"no smoking allowed." The conductor call
ed his attention to the fact,
"What did you observe?" said the Gen
"I merely desired to inform you," said the
min, in the blandest manner possible, "that
passengers are not allowed to smoke in the
cars. It is edhtrary to the rules." •
"Alt ! indeed," replied the great man, tak
ing out his watch with the utmost nonchal
ance. "Indeed! Then you shall consider the
rules suspended for the next half hour."
.This is a capital joke, no doubt, though
old-fashioned Republicans may not "see it."
