A sad picture indeed, yet there is one
more painful still. One step from Gen.
liabccck s office, which has become the
arcanum of our national disgrace, and we
are in tbenrtVAte office of the. nreiident
of the United States. To-day the eyes
of the whole nation are turned to him in
shame and reproach. There he sits
stolid, sordid, sullen. It is possible to
believe Gen. Henderson's solemn assur
ance of faith in Grant's entire innocence ?
There is but one ground where it cau be
presumed, and that is bis utter imbecility.
Until that is proven, and until it is de
nied that from the very first day
day of his inauguration, up to the present
hour, Grant baa invariably associated
with the most corrupt scoundrels and bas

it could be avoided";' until his intimac7

free from the knowledge of what his most
intimate confidents daily practiced before
his eyes, and largely, if not entirely, by
the use of his name and power. There
are constitutional governments in which
ministers resign the very moment they
lose the cofidencc of the people. One
hundredth part of the disgrace of this
whiskey ring would instantly drive the
cabinet of any constitutional government

Removing StumMw A friend ask

We are sure It will j found it preferable to remove stamps

and burn them afterwards, if desired.
It is slow work Burning isolated
stumps in a field and the same amount
of time spent in uprooting them will
be much more effective. A good team,
horses or oxen, with a stamp machine,
will clear quite a space of ground in a
day, and if the ground be atony, tbe
work may be further progressed by

A New Investios W. A. Weant,
of Salisbury, has invented and patented a
"seif-adiuptinff railway switch, which
will be of incalculable advantage to rail
road companies, both iu point of economy
and safety. With this attachment, a
train running thirty miles au hour can be
run on tbe side track at the will of the
engineer, and should the connection be
with the switch, and tbe engineer wish to
go ahead on the maiu track, be can with
equal ease shift the switch, running at
the same gperd; in fact, it is impossible to
run a train oft at a switch with this at
tachment. Some company or party of
means should own the patent, so as to
put it into practical use. Mr. Weant, be-

Mammoth Petition. A special dis
patch to the Richmoud Dispatch, among
other information given says :
Mr. Randall filed at the speaker ' desk
to-day a mammoth petition praying for
the repeal of tbe bank sump check act.
Tbe petition was enclosed in a handsome
waluut box. It is seven hundred aud
six feet, or about one eighth of a mile in
length. It contains thirty thousand three
hundred and nineteen names, represent
ing thirty -three States and five territories.

In the preparation of the soil for
crops, the first thing to be done is to
remove all surplus water. Not to do
this, would be about as unwise as for
the carpenter to commence building
the house at the ridgepole.
The next, to plough deep, because
the minerals in the subsoil may be
needed in the upper portions.
The thin!, to pulverize the soil un
til it is in a condition so fine that the
elements of fertility which it contains
shall be intimately mingled with each
other. The plough, harrow, and hoe,
will not perfectly accomplished this ;
the roller will accomplish much,
and a more recent implement, called,
'The Breaker aud Leveller," will do
definitely more. Jn this condition,
the soil will cling to the small roots,
the rain water will come along with
its ammonia to dissolve tbe sand, the
potash, the lime, the magnesia, and
other minerals present, and plants will
grow with great vigor. But this is
not all. If a drought occurs, the air
will penetrate a porous soil, taking
along with it, moisture, heat, ammonia,
carbonic add, &c, Ac, and give life
