MULES, HORSES, OXEN.—We read iu
almost every agricultural paper, we hear
in most agricultural addresses, and ewe
often hoar 13) OclnVerS4tion that one or the
other of these animals is the one, and / the
only one, that farmers should use, ye we
have never seen a farmer who wmildr say
"I know." One who has always one
his farm-work with oxen is sure that they
are the best in all 'tespeets ; while; fifty I
miles away he would search a huadred
farms to find as many yoke of oxen, and
when he did find therdbe would probably
be told they were duly fit for drudgery—
that horses only are suitable for farm
work, and their (*tiers are ready with
)(lads of re,asoqs to substantiate their the
pry. But take another day's journey,
arid the theory, is upset with mules—
mules here, there, eveywhere ; nothing
fa for a farm but mules, because they are
so strong and hardy they never tire, and
live upon almost nothing for their daily
rations, and are the very personification
pf life-everlasting. -
Now, while the advocates of each class
pf animals disagree so widely, how are
the seekers after truth to satisfy them
seJves r Do-they look to us for an opin
ion? We can give it; here it is,
are best; and loon a large farm all weuld
be found economical to. keep for different
classes of work, and it is our opinion that
no man who farms a hundred acres can
afford to do without oxen, mules, and at
feast one horse., If his oxen are well
trained, they Nilt travel as fast before the
plow and wagon as mules, but the latter'
are so much more enduring in hot ;Vil
er, at all sorts of hard work, that heir
services are then particularly valuable.—
They are better, too, to gooff pen the
road, or to carry produce to market, be
cause they may be, the gh naturally /
about as slow as oxenoraiued to travel
homeward without a loud at a round trot.
For working singly / i the enitivation of
eMps, mules areiar superior to horses,
and of Course can do a great deal of work
Shot could n , s be done by oxen, We''
have teen mules that were fair substitutes
for stuhile'horses, having one good quali
ty, that 0 sprefootodßess. There is one
object:on to mules on a farm, Where the
stock is generally pastured—there is notli
ing.short of a Mississippi fence that will
held them; that is twelve rails high, and
atake-ancl-ridered, and we have heard
planters declare that they had often known
the brutes to climb over such a fence as

keep mules, we Iherefore advise him to

stable all the time they are mg, of the

readers to the article on our 4th page,
from Harper's Magazine, headed "The

is common to mazazine writers about

upon by such writers as mere puffing at

other object than heralding the coming

than being kicked aside as trash when
they can no longer be used to the advan.

(thouglive had little reason to,4pect
I,that,thei old fogy limper is the first to
change to appreciation of the newspa,per.
1t is the greatest progressive stride it has
taken for many years,
'The Lock Haven Madman has
the following editorial in regard to the.
Congressional question. W agree with
the Wafeknian that allie availability of
the two candidates" should be thoroughly
examined, and ,the most ayailable, one

Republikan Congressman from this Dis
trict ,are good at this election—indeed, if
there is ‘ a proper degree .of vigilance man
ifested in selecting a candidate, there is
no doubt of surcess— z at least, if the pres
ent in.eunibent is re-nominated by the Le-.
comptonites, of , whieh there is no present
doubt. • The chances, at best, we are free
to confess, however, will be entirely gov
erned by the exertions made by the rank
and file of the
. opposing force. If Re
publicans are lax in going to the polls,
we are almost certain to'be defeated ; on
the contrary, if every anti-Lecompton
vote is polled to the purpose, a Republi
can Congressman can be eldeted by from
500 to 1,000 majority.

it becomes the opposition, if they wish to

availability of the two candidates, and
nominate the one which will prove the

IQ a report of the proceedings of the
Clinton COllll ty 4 ‘Demeratia" Convention,
we find the following item :
"Allison White then addressed the
Convention, and in his remarks in regard
to his Kansas policy, he boldly avowed
that voting flir the Lecompton Consti
tution he done right, and if lie had it to
do over again he would vote just as he.did
Allison White has more "grit" than
any of his smooth-tongued apologists. A
man who takes a wrong position and
it, is infinitely superior in point .of
integrity to those who endeavor to cover
up the wrong they see in it with metaphys
ical speculations and dis; illery blackguard
ism.' What we admire in the above para-'
graph, is the boldness with which White.,
declares his willingness to stand by thel
real issue of the contest. It is really re
fresling to turn from the wheedling, fawn- 1
ing, fence-striding editorials of the Clint*
Democrat, to such boldly avowc'l
ments from one who has so long been tli;
subject of its sickening cant.
Io etdcricc of the editorial force of the
Clinton Democrat, we extract,. entire, its
two leading editorials in the last number
received.. The first embraces the. or,gul
mentativc and the other the apologeti
capacity ofAhe paper:
"BOLD RECKLESSNEsS t -,-.We find a
Tariff letter in the Potter journal, over
the signature of Rush Petrikin. In view
of the fact that Rush used to denounce
his own party for favoring - protnetion, and
that he was loud in praise of DALr.As and
WiLmor for voting to repeal the Tariff of
'42, this letter is either a bold forgery or
a cool piece of impudence. If the letter
turns out to be genuine, we shall correct
some of its perversions hereafter."
Now for the apologetic :
"S&" We 'want no better evidence of
the integrity, political strength and sound
Denweratio candidate, than to see -him
violently assailed by the opposition press.
They generally falsify the most about the
candidate they arc certain would give them
I the most trouble to defeat, if nominated.
Detraction loves a shining i mark: "
." People who lice in glass houseishouldl
not throw stones," is an adage •to which
3ve, would respectfully solicit the attention
of IL° . Democrat man. There is no pa-[
per, of any party, in the district, so uril
Compromising and unscrupulous in ita
abrisc and .detraction of an opponent aS
the Clinton Democrat, and none that sO
' pertimmieusly avoids the slightest allusion
- to • any of the deserving qualities ofan
antagonist.' We may add, in this cornice-.
tier', that it is the only "Democratic" pa-.
per iu the State, of which we have any
knowiedge,which fails to deduce aatraightl ;
forward, emphatic argument, by which its
real position may be defined.
Iu regard 'to the letter of Mr. Petriker,
We would assure the editor of the Demo-'
crat that' it is genuine, and that any at
tempt 01:1 his part " to correct seine 'of its
perversions," will be perfectly harmless
I to its admirably spoken truths, except so -
I far as low slang and personal detraction
of its-author are calculated to indirectly/I
neutralize its influence on the minds oil
the "untetrified." The editor of the Demi r
oero t dare. not copy it, entire, in his pa
either with or without comment.
We hope he will eopy it when heat:01110
