The subjoined remark's of Secretary
Seward made at Washington on the
night of the 3d inst.,on the occasion of
the fall of Richmond, are well worth
reading. They have an easy, light
air; but are full of point and wisdom:
"I thank my fello.v-citizens for the
honor they do me by calling to congrat
ulate me on the fall of Richmond.
I am now about writing my foreign
dispatches. What shall I tell the
Emperor of China? I shall thank him
in your name, for never liaving per
init'.cd a piratical Hag to enter the har
bors of the Empire. Applause.
What thall I say to the Sultan of
Turkey ? I shall thauk him for always
having surrendered rebel insurgents
who had taken refuge in his kingdom.
Cries of "That's it!" and cheering.
What shall I say to the Emperor of
the French? A voice-'To get out
of Mexico. 1 shall" say to the Em
peror of the French, that he can go to
morrow to Richmond and get his to
bacco, so Jong held under blockade
there, provided the rebels have not
used it up. Laughter and cheers.
To Lord John Russell I will say
that British merchants will find the
cotton exported from our porta under
treaty with the United States cheaper,
than cotton obtained by running the
As for Eirl Russell himself, I need
not tell him that this is a war for free
dom and national independence and
the rights of human nature, and not a
war for empire; and if Great JJritain
should only be just to the United States,
Canada will remain undisturbed by us
so lone ns she prerers the uuAomji f
the Qui?en to voluntary incorporation
into the United States. Cheers and
excJutiiations "Thai's the talk; you're
Whit shall I tell the King of Prus
sia ? I wiil tell the King of Prussia
that the Germans have been faithful to
the standard of the Union, and his ex
cellent Aliniitfr, Baron Gerolt, has
been constant in his friendship to the
United States during his long residence
in this country. Cheers ,
To the Emperor of Austria I shall
say that he has proved himself a very
wise man, for he told us in the begin
ning that he had no sympathy with re
bellion anywhere. Cheers.
I tlo not doubt, fellow-citizens, bul
that at least you accede to the theory
by which I bvc governed myself du
iug the war, namely, that the rebel
lion will end in ninety days. Laugh
ter and cheers. I have lhought.tb.is
the true theory; because I never knew
a physician able to restore his patient
to health unless he thought he could
work a cure under the most unfavora
ble circumstances in ninety days. Re
Finally, to the American people,
I will say that our motto in peace shall
be what our text has been while in
war. Every nation is entitled to regu
late its own domestic affairs in its own
way, and all are - bound to conduct
themselves so as to promote peace on
earth and good will to mankind.

One of the Committee of Citizens of
Charleston, charged with the distribu
tion of the rice, asked that. 'an .order
should be issued requiring the colored
people to meet at specified places on
one day, and the whites on -lhe jday
succeeding. 'Col. Woodford replied:
"Sir :---Yhcn a man approaches mo

that he is black ; and when he comes
with the shield of disloyalty he looks

. .. ; . . WEST- -
A trip of four thousand miles through
the heart of the west, awakes a kind
ling thought of the greatness' f th re
piflilio. The west is the empire ; a fact
not acknowledged at the east,-'tecase
the east knows not the west. ,$ut, n
impartial traveler soon perceives, tbJt
the ca-ii is net the country. New Yor-
and New England are but the -thumb
and forefinger, the west is the rest of
the hand. i; jJ
A western visit in summer is best
for seeing the country; in winter, besi
for seeing the people. And 4ire thfj
not the heartiest, friendliest, most hosj
pilaUe of the . human race i What $
"Scotch welcome"-; may be, we know
not ; out. if belter than a western mau'a
welcome, it is better than a plain man
deserves. Jostle a western man in the
street, and at once you are an acquaint
ance ; meet him the next day and you
are friends. A shake of the hand in
the west has more grip in it than be
tween New York and Bangor. Child
of lhe east, the west is the chief crown
of the paient. The universal New
England elemeat westward is the best
part of New England ; for only . the
courageous, the energetic, and the con
quering have had the will to quit their
eastern homes for the western prairies.
Thus the early pilgrims to New Eng
land have their truest sons in the latter
pilgrims from New England. A Yan
kee, therefore, does no: come to his
fullest stature in Yankeeland ; the
grown Yankee is the .westerner. At
the east he is a geraneum in a pot,
thrifty and prim ; at the west, a gera
nium in a garden, where he grows
rank, exuberant and generous. New
countries greaten men's souls.
Does the west seek a heraldic sign?

O, bounteous land of small Louses and
big barns ! So fertile is the great val

"Only tickle the eanh wiih u hoe and
she laughs a harvest !" Though beat

snows, corn stalks are yet standing, in
January, so high that one riding among
them en a tall horse, and rising in (he
stirraps, cannot touch the tops! The
prairies common-place, Bad and sub

Four Years of War.
The rebellion, to use a slightly un
dignified phrase, has about "petered
out," the predictions and hopes of the
Copperheads to the contrary notwith
standing. The "Democratic" party,
through its National Convention on the
30th of August, in the city - of Chicago
assembled, declared "as the sense of
the American people," i. e., the Cop
perhead part thereof, that "after four
years of failure to restore the Union by
the expedient of war, during which
public liberty and private rights aliVd
trodden down, and lire material pros
perty of the country essentially impair
ed, justice, humanity, liberty and the
public welfare demand that immediate
efforts be made for a cessation of hos
tilities," with a view to an ultimate con
vention of Slates, &c."
; The "four years of failure" to "res
tore the Union by the expedient of
warfare" does not end until the 14th of
April 1SC5. The despised and con
teiEced 'expedient of warfare' will have
nearly, if not wholly, restored the
Union and crushed the rebellion with
in four years, as matters now look. If
the ' Democratic" party were again to
meet in National Convention, we sus
pect that they would materially modify
the second section of their infamous
and cowardly " Chicago ; Platform."

A King Leaving Ills Capital in
It has been already announced that
Victor Emanuel suddenly quitted Tu
rin and Uok up his abode in Florence.
The French Courrier, published in
New York, gives us some interesting
particulars totichins this event. The
King, who a few years ago was uni
versally honored, has recently lost fa
vor in the eye3 of the people. The
main cause is, that he is , suspected of
having lent himself as the tool of the
ambitious schemes of Napoleon. So
s rong has the feeling against him be
come in his own Capital,'- that he was

majesty?: He determined to submit to

ments, anl before the citizens were
aware of vbat was going on, had left
the city anS'was well" on his way to
Floreuc"eV As the future" capital is to
be lopated at the latter place, the King
only anticipated his departure by a fev
months ; but it would certajnly have
been more agreeable, if not more dig
nified.'to leave the cradle of his fore
fathers under mere friendly auspices.
He may have succeeded in vindicating
his Rojal Dignity, "and turning the ta

fact augurs badly for tie future of Italy.

The inhabitants of Richmond, we are
told, received our troops joyfully.
They have been so long half carved

they welcomed a change. There will
be no occasion to send Ben. Butler to
Richmond to regulr.ee the city. The

nooks and crannies in tb-3 human heart,
and what a lurking place for bats of
thought.it is, just as the pittance that
poverty gives to want is the truest gen

freest entrance into the kingdom of
Heaven. It costs them little to be gen

ItlcCULI.OCII THE CUKEtEX
, In a recent trial in Washington, lr.
McCulloch," being asked the cnan
causes of our depreciated currency i'ar
swered as follows ; ,
There have been various influences
operating upon what is called the gold
market. The necessity which the J
rovernment has been under of issuing
a large wmountof paper money has un
doubtedly had an effect In that direc
tion; and the uncertainty that has ex
isted in the minds of many persons in
regard to the ability of the . Govern
ment to suppress the rebellion, has, un
questionably, had an influence in that
direction; and then everybody under
stands there is a .great influence ' all
over the country in favor of a depreci
ated currency, The, use that has been
made, by persons who are not in actu
al sympathy wjtk the goverument, of
our reverses in the field has had a very
decided effect upon-the "gold market.
The effort that has been made to dis
trust the abilityl cf the Government to
maintaiu the payment of its obligations
is also a cause.' In fact, various caus
es have conspired. i :

Change of Seed. T. E. Willouh
by of Ogle county, III., writes the
Genesee Farmer that he obtained
some seed corn last year from Joseph
Wright of Waterloo, N. Y., and "had
a large crop." Mr. Wright sends to
the Wt;st for his seed corn, (Ohio
Dent,) aud we suppose the object in a
Western farmer getting his seed from
him is that after it has been grown in
this mere northern latitude it will be
earlier. Corn ripens earlier as we go
North, and when taken South has a
tendency for a year or two to ripen at
the same time and is consequently
earlier. With wheat' the case Is re
versed. Wheat ripens earlier as we
go Sou.b, and for this reason it is de
sirable to get seed wheat from a more

in water, exposed to the air, and then
mixed with about one founh of the milk;
the oil, iu which the pitch is dissolved,
to be added, a little at a time, then the
rest of the milk, and afterwards the
Spanish white. This is sufficient foe
twenty-seven yards, two coats. This is
for white paint. If desirable, any
other color may be produced; thuj, if a
cream color is desired, in place of part
of the Spanish white, use the ochre
Calves with Sheep. It is well
known perhaps, to most cf our agricul
tural readers that late calves, when
they come to the barn in the fall, wi'l,
if confined iu yards with older animals,
frequently sicken and become debili
tated. Being weaker and small, they
are usually shoved about, and depri
ved of their due share r rood, and 111
consequence, "fall away" rapidly.
Now I never allow animals like this to
associate or be confined with larger
ones, but put ihem with my sheep,
where there is no danger of their do
ing or receiving any harm. Sick
calves, I have observed, often pick up
and devour with avidity the hay and
straw from among the sheep dun. It
,, t medicinal, and I know of no article
hat has a more immediate and salu
Irry effect in restoring diseased calves
la health than sheep dung. I have
practiced this usage for many years,
anti have never lost an animal, though
I ha'e had many sick when they came
to th barn.
