"All tlie lemix'ratic nu-mlHrs of

said Mr. Morrison, "are in favor of
the central idea of the old tariff
plank a revenue tariff. We care
ery little what words are employed
to express the idea, so that it is
stated clearly. Whether the Con

Mr. I'.u.'kiicr, of Missouri, said:
The Democratic party is m favor
of a revenue tariff. My State will
expect a platform this year as clear
on the revenue question as was t lu

true policy is to go st raight on in'
the line indicated by the votes and

platform and a straight, honest as

Con t a Ills soinet h 1 n g uoithy of the
atieiitioii of farmers and men en
gaged in other pursuit s :
It is now understood among all
intelligent farmers that a diversity
ol crops is positively necessary to
the progress and growth ol an agri
cultural community. The farming
interests of a country are the very
foundations of all prosperity. When
the crops fail then there is stagna
tion in trade, and every department
of industry feels it. It is by varied
industries by the small industries
especially that countries flourish.
Col. Pardee said that the prosperity
of New Fngland was more owing to
the many small industries than to
one or two large industries. Ai
tanner should own his hind, be in
dependent in h is opcrat ions, should
have control of the means of coin
lortable living and should be free
from debt. Without this t hei e can
not well beany healthful, substan
The industries thiivc together.
If one sutlers the others are apt to
feel it. Agricultuie precedes nil
others. In the South a majority of
the pt ople are farmers. In Penn
sylvania of every five men only one
is a farmer. It is known that the
Pennsylvania farms are much more
valuable to the acre and much more
profitable than " Sout hern farms.
Farm lands m Pen n iy I v an i a
average .4'...i0 to the acre. A farm
worker in Virginia produces -1U:
a farm worker in Pennsy lvania pio
duces i4 ',1 . This is because there
are more consumers m Pennsy lvania
and fewer producers and there is a
much higher excellence m fanning.
The Iliirh Tariff, inainlv levied
for (he beiie'it of Pennsy lvania and
New F.nghmd manufacturers, draws
aw ay the people from the farms and
the price of land is so high but few
laborers can buy. If all the States
wa re ti follow the example of Penn
sylvania the pi ice ot lood would be
terribly increased. If in every
State but one man m five worked
on a farm there would not be
enough food made for the people,
or if enough it would letch fabulous
pVices unless other countries com
peted in supply ing our maikets.
l!ut the Pennsy Ivatiiani increase
the productiveness of t heir fai ms by
high manuring and then increase
the net results by d i vi-r-i iy i ng t he

to that letter I received two letters

md a second letter written by
George E. Spencer, the cashier of
the firm of Grant & Ward, and
signed by Gen. Grant himself. In :
tiiese letters he states that all these ;
transactions are all right and I
straight, and that the profits are
genuine. When these facts, and
various other facts which are in my

Mil. Editok: Since I wrote to y ni
last I have been to several picnics and
other entertainments throughout the
county ; but we didn't have a big time
of it like you do about New Berne, for
you have giot the advantage of the
steamboats to carry the whole picnic up
and down the rivers, while here we
haven't any. At one picnic that I went
to a few daya ago the crowd divided
into three parts one was called the
Bartow crowd, another the Mill crowd,
anil th" other the pinpy woods "tickey;"
they all eat their dinner, separate from
each other, in fact they did n 't have any
thing to do with each other, though
they were nut more than one or two
hundred yards apart. Apparently all

I. with two other men. went out on a
hunt and soon came to a kind of a
broom-straw thicket which was about
green but burned tolerably well. It
wasn't long before I saw them jumping
in the ditch, so I told one of ray men to
get in the ditch on one side with a
slick, and 1 would get on the other. 1
saw the rabbits running out when I got
to my post. I stood in tho ditch until
the straw was all burned oil"; then I
counted up 02 that I had killed, while
my friend on the other side had 78, and
the third man with his gun killed 12

we have to make another and the largest
one at the very season too when farm

time of the year. And now while our;
