Paris, February 28, 1863
There are numerous shops in Paris called
is n (roc. You min buy anything in them,
except new things, from it mill to a bedstead
—shoes, hats, swords, books, china ; in fact
anything that. the people use, buy, or sell.—
Passing one of these shops the other day, I
saw a lot of books on a tray near tile door,
and stopped to look at them. (in the back of
an octavo volume was the title, The Olive
Branch. I had a dim recollection of the book,
and on openink it, found it to be The Oliver
Branch; or, Faults on both Sides, Federal and
Democratic, by Mathew Carey, Philadelphia,
1815, Svo, I p 48G ) Your elderly readers
all remember Alai hew Carey; the famous
bookseller of Philadelphia, founder of the
'grtstit imrisz of - trrey & Lea, which still sub=
lists, I think under another name. He was
Jetlersonian Democrat of the old school.—
He wrote this book in 1814, at a lime when,
as he says in his preface, faction was fast
rending the country, when "it large propor
Bon of the wealthiest 11101 in the community
were sedulously employed in tearing down the
pillars of the government, throwing every ob
stacle, difficulty, and embarrassment in the
way of its administrators:' when " the na
tional vessel was on Nicks and tjuicksauds;
yet, instead of efforts to extricate her, the
crew were distracted by a dispute as to how
she clime into that situation;" when certain
political leaders (of the Federalist party) were
—determined to seize the helm. and rather
than riot succeed, were willing that the vessel
should go to perdition." The aim of the
book was to implore teen of all parties to “sus
peed all inquiries as to the cause of dangel-,
till the :ship should be righted." It has a
dedication couched in the following terms
" 00, Olive Branch, into a community which
beholds the pillars of the government tearing
away ; the nation nearly prostrate at the feet
of a ruthless foe ; anarchy rapidly approach.

less of the corn[lloll danger, struggling to seize
upon the government, and with this view op
posing every measure calculated to ensure our
It strikes me that an abridged reprint of
this book would be very useful just now.—
It would be useful to the fearful and despon
ding, by showing them that faction was just
as busy in the war of 1812 as to the present
civil war, and yet that the vigor and virtue
of the nation were strung enough to put down
faction. Then. as now, the object of many
of the journals and politicians was, as Mr,
Carey states, to "run down the incumbents in
otlice at all events." The "public function
aries" who happened to be Democrats, were
treated by their opponents, who happened to
be Federalist, worse, the writer says, then we
should treat the veriest rascal in society."—
It was the favorite idea of those people to de ,
pose "Jim Madison," as they styled him, and
to "supply his place with one of thoir:frionds."
The favorite phrase of Mr. Barent Gardenier,
and other members of Congress, was, that
the present administration must CO um down.—
At a•public meeting. "General Wharton gave
the toast : "James Madison on the island of
Elba." Everything tended to a dissolution of
the country into "several separate confedera
cies, under which we should be cursed with a
constant border war. fomented by the nations
of Europe, to which we should be a sport and
a prey."
Mr. Carey, as I have said, addressed his
appeal to both parties. The Democrats, ho
thought, had erred fearfully in adopting, in
part at least, from a few theorists, the State
right 4 , tleettino.--ile--fraakty—con fesses--h is
own error on this head. "We were wild and
extravagant enough," he says, "to see des
potism in many. features of the Constitution,
and were so fortutitous and blind as not to
have the slightest idea of danger from the
State governments." The conduct of the Fed
eralist legislatures during the liar opened the
eyes of leading Democrats, and. cured them
of what Mr. Carey admits to have been a mis
erable Infatuation. But, as may naturallfbe
supposed, the book chiefly ,aims to convince
the country of the danger of the course pur
sued by the Federalists. It aims' to do this
by facts and documents, gathering - together
---the---resoltv ions-of-public - meetings, lelfiTila
tures, etc, and thus showing how far the
spirit of faction had gone, in order to awaken
the slumbering masses 'of the people
./o the
perils of the times. The favorite cries of
the opponents of the government were, of
course, that its acts were unconstitutional and
arbitrary. Before the war broke out, the
embargo was thus denounced. A meeting
held in Philadelphia, " Commodore Truston
in the chair," passed resolutions declaring
" the enforcing law" ,(passed under Thomas
Jefferson !) to be " a direct invasion of the
established principles of civil liberty and the
express provisions of the Constitution."—
Boston begged the Legislature of Massachu4
setts to " devise means of relief against the
unconditional measures of the General Gov
-ernment." A circular issued from Newbury
port called on the people to " nerve their
arms with vengeance against the despot Jef
ferson, a man who, with the dagger of public
confidence, was stabbing the public liberties."
Mr. llillhouse declared,' in the U. S. Senate,
that as the "act contained unconstitutional
provisions, the people were not bound to sub
mit, and in his opinion would not submit."
All this was before the war. But even during
the heat of the strife, the opponents of the
administration went still further. They de
clared that the vote of the Senate in favor of
the'declaration of war had been secured by
bribery and corruption. The Federal papers
generally published a declaration that "a
gentleman employed in the office of Foreign
Affairs [in France] saw on the books the
names of the Senators bribed. and the sums
paid each of them by Serrurier." No doubt
plenty of good hunest people believed this
story then. The assaults of the party jour
nals on Mr. Madison were furious in the ex
trete -Th 7tEc
1814, declared that " Mr. Madison cannot
complete his term of service if the war con
tinues. On or before the 4th ofJuly, if James
Madison is not nut of office, a new form of gov
ernment will be in operation in the eastern
section of the Union.'' Au address to James
Madison, published May 1814, and widely
circulated throughout New England and Now
York, gave the following warnings and ad•
vice to the l/emocratie Chief Magistrate:
' You have eitrneil your opprea:iions to the
utmost stretch. We will no longer submit.— the Constitution to its purity. Make
a just and honorable peace:. Unless you com
ply with theii•e just demands without delay,
we will v. ithdraw from the Union, scatter to
the winds the bonds of tyranny, and trans
mit to posterity the liberty purchased by the
In the Massachusetts Legislature, Mr. Law,
of Ly man, on the sth of October, 1 . 811, pro•
posed a resolution that. "a committee be ap
puinted to confer with all the New England
States, to repair to Washington and person
ally make known to the President the general
opinion, of the New England States, as to the
present war and the manner in which it has
been conducted, and to inform him that he
must either resign his office ur remove those
ministers and officers who have, by their ne•
forious plans, ruined the nation."
The Senate of the same State declared that
"the war was founded in falsehood, declared
without necessity, and that its real obje,:t was
to aid the late tyrant of Europe (Napoleon)
in his view of aggrandizement." A M:L , S -

that this would he to violate the Constitution
and sever the Union, the Centind replied :
" Are they not both already virtually de•
stroyed ? Or in what stage of existence would
they be should we declare a neutrality or
even withold taxes and men ?" Tlie same
paper, Sept. 10th, 1814, asks : " What shall
we do to be saved ? Ono thing only. The
people must rise in their' majesty, protect
themselves, and compel their unworthy ser
vants to obey their will."

"Come tell and !whore the maid Is found,
Whose heart can love without deceit,
And I will range the world around,
To Milli one moment at her feet."
One fine July day, the fair Margaret,
Queen of Navarre, then on visit to her roy
al brother, had arranged a rural feast for
the morning following, which Francis had
declined '',Mtending. He was melancholy ;
and the cause aas said to be some lover's
cplarrel with a favorite dame. The morrow
came, and the dark rain and murky clouds
destroyed at once the schemes of the court
ly throng. Margaret was angry, and she
grew weary: ricer only hope for amusement
was in Francis, and ho had shut himself up
—an excellent reason why she should desire
to see him. She entered his apartment ;he
was standing under the casement, against
which the noisy shower beat, writing with a
diamond on the glass. As Queen Margaret
entered he hastily let down the silken curtain
before the window, and looked a little con
"What treason is this, my liege," said the
queen. "which crimsons your cheek ? 1 must
see the same."
"It is treason," replied king "and therefore,
sweet sister, thou must not see it."
This the more excited Margaret's etfrosi
„ll, and a playful contest ensued. Francis
at last yielded ;_he. threw hi niself un huge,
high-backed settee; and, as the lady drew
back the curtain with an arch smile, he grew
grave and sentimental, as he reflected
on the cause which had inspired this libel
against all woman-kind.
f•What.have we here?” said Margaret.
"Nay this is Ics inuirste—

rashly; "to instance the falsehood of one no

"Nut even Emilie de Lagny ?" said the
This was a sore subject for the queen—Eiui
lie had been brought up in her househ.ild,
the most beautiful and virtuous of her maids
of honor. She had long loved the Sire de
Lagny, and their nuptials were celebrated
with rejoicings, but little ominous of the re
sult. Dc Lagny was accused but a year after
of traitoriously yielding to the emperor a
fortress under his command, and he was con
demned to perpetual imprisonment. For sonic
time Emilie was inconsolable, often visiting
the miserable dungeon of her husband, and
suffering: "n- her-return from witnessing his
waetehednetls, such paroxysms of grief, as
threatened her life. Suddenly, in the midst
of her sorrow, she disappeared ; and inquirey
only divulged the disgraceful fact that she
had escaped from France, bearing her jew•
els with her, and acooadpanied by her page,
Robert Leroux. It was whispered that du
ring her journey, the lady and her stripling
were often seen together; and. Margaret eu--
raged at these discoveries, commanded that no
further quest should be made for her lost
Taunted now by her brother, she defended
Emilie, declaring that she believed her to be
guiltless, even going so far its to boast that
within a mouth she would bring proof of her
"Robert was a pretty boy," said Francis,
"Let us make a bet," cried Margaret. "If
I lose, I will bear this vile rhyme of thine as a
motto to my shame to my grave, if I
"I will break my window, and grant what
ever boon thou askest," said the king.
The result of this bet was long sung by
troubadour and minstrel. The queen em
ployed a hundred emissaries—published re
wards of any intelligence of Emilie—all in
vain. Tl/0 month was e spicing, and Margaret
would have given many bright jewels to re
deem her word. On the eve of the fatal day,
the jailor of the prison in which the Sire de
Lagny was confined, sought audience of the
queen ; he brought her a message from the
knight to say, that if the lady Margaret would
ask his pardon as her boon and obtain from
her royal brother that, lie might be brought
before him, her bet wive won. Fair Margaret
WAS very joyful, and readily made the re
quired promise. Francis was unwilling to
see his false servant, but he was in high hu
mor, for a cavalier had that morning brought
intelligence of a victory over the imperialists.
The messenger himself was lauded in the his
patches as one of the most fearless and brave
knights in France. The king loaded with
present's, only regretting that a vow prevented
the soldier, from raising his visor or declaring
his name.

on the lattice on which the ungallant rhyme I
was traced, Francis reposed ou the same sot.

Buying a Farm.
A farm should be the home, and its man
agement the business of the owner. It is
true one may be hired or worked on shares,
but very seldom do we see land, cultivated
under such circumstances, managed in a way
worthy of the name of farming. Ownership
seems necessary to a proper appreciation of
the characteristics and powers of the soil.—
We again see a movement in the real estate
markt t—sales and purchases of farms, and it
suggests some thoughts on what. one should
look to and seek for in buying a farm.
Considered as the homestead and abiding
ing place of the owner, a farm should be pleas
antly and conveniently situated. The health,
happiness, and comfort of those who occupy
it aro of the first importance; so every social
and physical influence which bear upon them
should have due weight in determining a
choice. A healthy locality should be consul
cred far above a fertile soil. The thousand
things which promote home comfort will coup
pemsate for many pecuniary disadvantages.
Happiness, the enjoyment of social privileges
and blessings, go far to make . a sterile soil of
greater value than the most productive, where
a moral - miasma - prevails:. A' situation 'of easy
access to the great routes of business and
mails, with educational and religious privi
leges of a high class, would be considered of
the highest importance by the intelligent and
cultivated man, who would enjoy the best
privileges of American life and society.
Another thought The new location should
be suited to the tastes and character of the
purchaser. Men of mature age are usually
of fixed habits and dispositions, such its do
not change with a removal LO another home.
They should lied thou in the new, the best
pleasures and Conveniences of the old, and as
ninny improvements as may be. But if cir
cumstances require any consideaable change,
it should be remembered that to make it will
rcquire Home exertion awl energy—they 'must
expect this or meet disappointment. Their
children arty find a happier and butter life
in this new locality—the sacrifice of old Lab•
its can he inade for their sakes.
As a business the requisites of successful
farming depend to a considerable extent on
choice-of the farm. It should be one which
the owner has the means and understanding
to manage. One cannot put all his capital in
land, and expect to tarn' profitably on credit
and make shifts—often so cramped that. all
improvements are out of his reach. As well
might the merchant put his 'whole capital in
to tiuo store, reserving nothing to purchase
Met goods wherewith to fill the shelves and at
tract customers. It requires as much capital
to stock and carry on a farm generally, as to
pay for the land itself. The farmer needs
capital to keep his credit good—to take ad
vantage of the market in buying and selling,
and in making _seasonable improvements. A
farmer loses money who is compelled by want
of money to sell his crop at the lowest stage
of the market, or who cannot COMmand extra
labor in any emergency of the season, or who
is obliged to watt for a few years to get a few
hundred dollars to drain a swamp that would
pay hint the interest on alhousand dollars as
soon as the work was done.
The farm should he suited to the products
which it is desired to devote it to. The
taste and experience of the owner will ex
cite hint to undertake certain branches of
farming., but some soils are best calculated
for grain growing, others will produce extra
fruit, others have grass and water ftr the
dairy, or stuck generally, while occasional
locations are to be mound where all these
may be combined to a greater or less extent.
These things should be taken into account
in buying a farm.
Then market facilities are to be consider
ed. In the management of a farm much
depends on this, and it is a matter of mo
ment whether it will cost five cents or fifty
to bring a dollar's worth of produce to the
consumer. In the vicinity of large towns
the production of garden crops is often very
profitable, while at a distance from the mar
ket no dliendence can be put on such pro
ducts. The one can grow a largo variety to
spose of—something every week bringing
in 010 cash—whilst the other must necessa
rily devote himself to a few leading articles
his harvest accruing but two or thrce times
a year. But the recent great increase in the
means of transportation has done inuch to
equalize the value of fanning lands through
out 'the country, especially when devoted to
the more valuable and least bulky articles
of producb.
Agiiin, a farin should possess in itself a
good capacity of production, so that it may
be readily and profitably managed, in such
a way as to retain and increase the fertility
of the soil. A farm easily worn out—a
course of management rapidly exhausting
the fertility of the soil, would soon bankrupt
the farmer i his business would no longer be
remuneratiVe; his home and his comforts
would soon-pass away. Hence it is not all
to buy a farm ; one must have the skill to
manage it rightly. To do business profita
bly one must understand business principles
and carry teem out, and nowhere is this
more important than upon the farm. The
question is often debated whether farming is
really profitable or not, but could we only
see the fortunes lost by the careless habits
of those who : pursue it, the decision would
soon be arrived at —Country Gentleman.

The final and pdrmanent fruits of liberty

immediat effects are often atrocious crimes,
conflicting errors, skepticism on points the
most clear, dogmatism on points the most
mysterious. It is just at this crisis that its
enemies love to exhibit it. They pull down
the scaffolding from the half finished edifice;
they point to the flying dust, the falling bricks,
the comfortless rooms, the frightful irregu•

newly-acquired freedom produces—and that
cure is freedom ! When a prisoner leaves his

faces. But the remedy is not:to remand him
into his dungeon; but to accustom him to the
rays of the sun. The blaze of truth and
liberty may at first dazzle and bewilder na

house of bondage. But let them gaze on and
they will soon be able to bear it. ff
