Mr. Headley, of all writers, is perhaps best
qualified to portray the the stupendous feat
ures of the mighty contest. His previous
works on less momentous themes have placed
him in the first position, as a graphsc and pow
qui ddeniator of war scene and characters,
and the magnitude and grandeur of the pres-
PM subject, impart to his pen the fire and vi
vid a yet more exacted inspiration, and fur
oh ample scope for the highest eXhibition of
his peculiar genius for military . description.
Crider hia powerful pen the stirring scenes of
the War pass in review with the vividness sod
distinctness of a present and living reality;
Mile his great talent for condenuation ena
bles him to embody everything of importance
ill a compass just suited to the public want.

Villagers, and Farmers who have

Mr. Smith.—Trade is very dull nowa
days; I don't sell half as much as I did
five years ago.
,Mr. Jones.—Good reason. Things
're so high, we can't afford to buy.
You charge such awful prices, Smith.
Mr. Smith.—Can't help it,. I have to
pay so much more. When I sold sugar
at 10 cents a pound, I made a cent a
pound, and I only make a cent now on
20 cents, and this cent prbfit don't go
-ao far io_keep my family.
Mr. Brown.—l boy just an much as
ever. I don't see as there is much
change. I used to sell. my 600 bushels
of wheat for 75 cents a bushel; or $450.
Of this, $250 went for family
and $2OO to iiity off my farm debt. Now,
when I sell for $1.50 perbushel, or $9OO
it takes-about $5OO for store bills, and
tented $4OO to pay off-the debt. In fact
these high prices suit me. I wish Mr,
McCulloch bad kept out of the Treasury
for he threatens to make Greenbacks
par, and knock down prices.
Mr. Price.-1 don't see as it makes
much difference. If there is twice se
much money going, and everybody gets
twice as much for everything he raises,
and pays twice as much for_ everything
he boys, it all comes out square at the
end ; and there is this gain in the opera
tion : those who' save money, or mate a
profit, make double, as neighbor Brown
explains about paying his farm debt.
Mr. Butler.—Thaea so.
Mr. Greene.—So I think.—Mr. Moore.
—So do I. ,
Mr. Baker.—There is a little draw
back. 1 keep the accounts of Widow
Roberts, who has the mortgage on Mr.
Brown's farm, and the $4OO he pays,
don't go only half so far in supporting
her, and educating her children.
Mr. Mavis, (the School Teacher ).
Yes it does, for I only get $3O a month
for teaching Mrs. Robert's and other's
children, and I used to get $25, with
wheat at 75 cents.
Rev. Mr. Corey.—And I only get $6OO
a year, while I always had $5OO with
wheat at 75 cents and sugar 10- cents.
Several froices.—That ain't quite
square. _ ,
Mr. Knox, ( Editor ).—And you only
pay me $2 a year for my newspaper,
which you thought cheap at $1.50, five
years ago, though 1 have , now to pay
three times as much for everything I use
in making a newspaper.
Mr. Greene.—Why- don't you raise
your prices, too ?
Mr. Knoz.—People won't stand it.
I must keep along: Wish no profit, Or .
even - at ' a' hoping for better times,
or else lose my subscribers, and let the
paper go down. Why, when :.I raised
the price from $1.50 to $2 a year; a good
many stopped the paper-:ainotig' thim
Mr. Brown himself, though I paid hint'
double for his wheat.
Mr. Browis.-4 didn't stop it eo mnch
for the price; I wentin - for paying for
My farm by extra econoely.
Mr. Enex.—Yes, he followed my ad
vice for people " to economize , and pay
their debts now." But let ureee - Mr.`
Brown began at the - right place. On

price, and thought he did well. .:Lie
came home boasting about it, until he
met neighbor johrufon, who got the 15
cents advance, because he read my pa
per, and was wide-awake. Mr. Brown's
loss on 60 bushels would pay four-whole
Mr. Brown:--Don't say anything more
about that, Mr. Knox, and put me down
a iabscriber for life.
Knox.—l have heard of several other
such losses by those who stopped my
paper. Not to be too personal, as some
of them are here, rwill call them A, B,
C, etc: Mr. A. paid 4 per cent more
fees on $7l taxes, because he did not -
see the collecter's notice in my paper,
and thus lost $2.84, to save $2. Mr. B.
paid $3.60 the same way. Mr. C. failed
to bring in his claim against au estate,
because he did not see in my paper the
legal notice limiting the time. That
cost him $34, to save $2 subscription.
Mr. D. sold 200 pounds of wool at 62
cents, because he did not see an adver
tisement of Mr. Smith, right here at
home, offering 70 cents. That, cost him
$l6, to save $2. Mr. F's. boys went
down to the village every night or two,
to get the news and local gossip, because
they had no paper at home, and one of
them fell into bad company, and is ruin
ed. I know twenty cases where people
lost money for not learning what is going
on. I gather up all that is going on in
business and society, and condense it in
to my columns. It is important for
every man to know all about home mat
ters, and I doubt if there is a man in
this whole town who would not, in- the
course of &leer, get some information,
that would pay him back mere than $2 a
year. Anal then think of a household
sitting dowm.together 365 days in'a year,
and hating nothing to talk about, except
their own affairs, and a few items °Pips
sip, gathered up by occasional contact
`CM other people. •
Taylor.---Let me help Editor Knoxla
argument. Wife read to me an item he
published about a humbug, which he
cofied from the American Agriculturist;
of New York City. Next day one of
these same humbugs came round- with
his article, and was so plausible that he
almost persuaded her into paying him
$3, for his swindling recipe ; but the
editor's - caution kepther back.
A:max.—Yes, and do 'yeti know that
.the fellow sold more- than fifty of the
humbug recipes hereabouts, at $3 a
piece Y but-not to any of my subscribers.
Potts.—Pat me down as .16 subscriber,
Mr. Knox, here -is your two dollars.
Show.--And me too.
Knox.—Thank you, gentlemen. I'll
try to make a better paper than ,ever,
Every dollar helps ; a new sabscr iber
only adds to my expense the co at of pa
per. If everybodyto2k the paper, and
thus divided the cost of getting news,
setting, gine° rent, etc , I. could
double the value of the paper le each.
Please talk the matter over with other
neighbors and see if it cannot , be dpne.
&veral I%oices.—We , will.
Sinith.—And now while you life about
it, I' want to make up a club-for a good `
New York paper.
BroMn.—We can't afford to take so
Smith.—Xoe has,jiet seen that you
could not afford to stop year 'home pa,

our club. Mr. Bir t h, you have taken the
American Agriculturist for urinal years.
Does it pay?
ilich.—Pay? Yes, fifty tildes over`:
Why I got two ten-aire fields ready to
OW to 'wheat; and pat one Of thein.
That night my Agriculturist ca me, and I
read a simple recommendation' shout
preparing seed wheat: I called
and we put 15 bnalkels snok, for the
nest day. It cost 50 dente for the ma
terials. Well, tinikeecoad field , yielded
5 bushels an acre more than the other—
or 50 bushels extra, and better wheat
too. Pretty good pay' for $1.50 expen
ded fora paper. .And I hive got loth
of other hints almost an profitable. You
know I get better plofiti on my beef

at $1.50 a bushel, when otherlinds ing
only 50 cernts. That's $250 clear gain,
for the $l4 extra I paid for seed, and
the $1.50 I paid for the Agriculturist.
It was through this paper that I learned
about both the cabbages. and potatoes.
Its editors are careful, intelligent men,
on the constant lookout `;for anything
new that is really good, while the pa

Smith.—What say yon, Mr. Taylor ?
Does it pay to invest. $1.50 in the Agri
Taylor.—Nost certainly. - A hint in
he paper led me to look 'after certain
insects at the proper time, and the re
sult was, I had 160 barrels of splendid
apples, which brought me a clean $5 per
barrel, and this , you know was better by
$l, than the average prices here, or SI6P.
Then I have read so much about _good
and bad times, the method of treating
thein, etc., that I can beat the town in
Tieing grapes profitably. My son. Wil
liam, got a kink in his head., about To
matoes,• from something the Editors
said, and sent for some seed. He made
more money on the crop raised in his
spare hours, than was cleared by half the
farmers in this town.
Smith.—Let's hear from Mr. Crane.
Crane.—l only read in the paper what
waty said about hogs—what kind paid
best, how to feed them, and the like ;
but if you will call around and see my
porkers, and my expense account, I'll
bet a pippin I can Eh:low fifty dollars
more of pork for the same money, than
any other man here. And this•.: comes
from readinurtial, oiher men think and
do. But Wife aught to be here.to speak.
She and. the girls read the Agriculturist
next to the Bible. They think the
bollsericild department Is . worth more
than all the - t e as ion magazines in the
world. They say, it is so fall of good
hints about all kinds of house Work. All
I can say is, that we do have better
bread and-cake ; and wife says the cake
don't cost so much as it used to do.
She has learned from the paper how a

Rev. Corey.—Let me say, also, that
Mrs. Crane and , her daughters have ad

the other day, they got thoee .np from

,knew but little of gardening ; but this

best-things to plant and sow, when to
plant, and how to cultivate—all told in
so plain and practical a way, by men
who seem .to talk from their own expe

how, to do it well. The high moral tone

Smith.— The "Geneses Farmer," was
not really stopped. The Publishers of
the Agriculturist invited Mr. Harris to
jein the Farmer to the Agriculturist, and
pat his whole force into the latter paper.
They paid him a large price for his of
fice, and moved it with everything con
nected with it to their office. So the.
Agriculturist is really two papers joined
into one, and of course better. I think
we better go with Mr. Harris to the
Agriculturist, that has been published
for 25 years, and has a hundred thousand
circulation, which, as Mr. Knox has
told ns, supplies the means and facilities
for giving us a great deal more for the
same money. •Mr. Harris carries on hie
large (arm, and in his "Walks and Talks
on the Farm," And other things he
writes for the Agriculturist, he tells us a
great deal about all kinds of farm work.

This does not come - from the "sweat" of

A VERY PROPER ANSWER.—Gen. Clin
ton B. Fisk, in charge of the Bureau of
Refugees and Abandoned Lands for
Kentncky and Tennessee, has his head
quarters at Nashville. and has much
trouble with the "poor whites," who are
beggarly, mean and impudent. A Nash
ville letter says :—.
"Not long since a woman from the
refugee camp, which the Government
has been supplying with subsistence for
'some time, called on Gen. Fisk for the
purpose of getting transportation or ra
tions, She Wits a fair specimen of the
tobacco-chewing, snuff-taking 'white
trash' ofTennessee. After considerable
conversation of a general character, th(
following occurred :
Refugee.—' Mister Fisk, be yon al

Refugee.—' But you don't believe i
nigger equality, do you ?'
General F.—' I do not think, mademi
that you have occasion for the slightel
Uneasiness on the subject of negro eqias
ity ; for you must certainly learn a grel
deal more, and do a great deal bette
before you can possibly be on an equal
ty 'with a great many of the negroes.'
Our female refugee departed withou
much ceremony, and it is predicted tha,
she will throw her influence in favor of
the conservative candidate at the com
ing Congressional election."
WAS IT A " WATERFALL ?"—ln that
admirable book "The Canoe and Sad
dle," by the lamented Theodore Win
throp, in the description of the manner
of catching salmon by the Klalam Indi
ans up in Puget's Sound, we find the
following : " They don a head-gear like
a.` rat's nest,' coofected of wool, feath
ers, furry tails, ribbon and rags, consid
ered attractive to salmon and highly
magical." This sounds very like a de
scription of the- modern "water-fall."
Perhaps our belles took the hint from
the Klalams and think their "head-gear'
will make them more successful "fishers
of men." -
Wurrirsrso.—The attention of the
mistress of a family was lately called to
the fact that a little colored girl was
constantly seen lying on the grass-plat,
with her face turned up to the sun.
Upon being questioned why she assumed
that posture, she answered, "Why, blis
sis always lam& things on the grass

to-get white too."
