! II oobies, who Lave never been we..t cf
th ; AlleL'henies, and who writ? editorials
for the New York WurU, and otherfrco
trade papers, call upon the people of
Indiana to do.-troy the tarifl laws enacted
for the Leneiit of New England monopo
lists. They say as Hull said in hisspe-ch
the other niilit, that "Indiana pays SI, -Omm,i
K) in this tarili'on t.Sankets alone."
The fa'-t is, as any one can find out who
will inquire at our WiKilen iniils, that
blankets of Indiana manufacture are now
sold in Uo.-toii. New York, Ilitrtf rd
(Connecticut), I'hila ljlphia. New Or
leans and San Francisco, in successful
competition with New Fngland and
European poods. Our mills manufacture
tlu wool prowii by our own farmers, and
the men who work in the mills consume
t li ; products of our own farms. To re
peal the taiiiTIaws enacted by a llepuh
liean Congress will c!o-e our miil.s and
comjiell us to buy our blankets in New
Mm land or from European manufac
turers. Stsall AVe Jhil Agnlii.
T!:e following is said to be one -f the
mo'-t brilliant articles overwritten by the
late (Jeo. I. I'rentiee.
'"IJut the fiat of nature is inexorable.
There is tie repeal of relief from the
preat law which dooms its to W e
flourish and lade as the leaves of the
forest, and the ilower.s that bloom and
wither for a day have no frailer hold
upon life than the ininhtie.-t monarch
that over shook'the earth with his foot
steps. ( generations of men will appear,
and as the prass, and the countless mul
titude that throng the world to-day will
to-morrow disappear as the footsteps on
the shore.
"Men seldom think of the preat event
of death until the shadow falls across
their own pat -h, hiding from their eyes
the traces of loved one.-, whose living
smiles were the sunlight of their exist
ence. Death is the preat antagonist of
li.e, ai d the cold thought of the tomb is
the skeleton at all feasts. We do not
want to po through the dark valley, al
though its passage may lead to Paradise;
and, with Chailes Lamb, we do not want
to lie down in the grave "even with
kings and prit.ccs for our bed fellows. "
"In the leautiful drama of 'Ion,' the
instinct of immortality, so eloquently ut-t-red
by the death devoted (Inck, finds
a deep respon-e in every thoughtful soul.
When about to yield his young existence
a-a sacrifice to fate, his beloved Cl.j
mantha a-ks if they .-hall not meet
aiaitj, to which he replies: J a-ked
that dreadful question of the hills that
look eternal of the clear streams that
flow forever of the stars among whose
fields of azure vy raised spirit has
walked, upon thy living face, 1 feel that
there is something in the love that man
tlei through its beauty that cannot per
idi. We shall meet ajrain, Clemautha."
The Uiiea Ifmilil wants to know how
and whrre Tweed, the dictator of the
New York Democracy, acquuired his
wealth. It. -ays: "Ten years ago, Wil
liam M. Tweed was a chairtnakor and a
bankrupt, in New Yi rk. He left his
honest trade and devoted himself to poli
tics, lie became a sachem of Tammany,
and held various ollices. Ten years have
clap-ed, and he boasts that h' is one of
the large.-t tax payers in New York city.
His wealth is reported at twelcr, iiiilliuu
ilnlf irs. Where did it come from?
Politics ha been his vocation. Taxes
have marvellously increa.-ed wherever
his influence has been felt. The assessed
valuation of all the real estate in Oneida
county is about ?! 1,'!)0,KK). That n p-re.-oiits
the hard toil of many men for
three generations. Tweed, in ten years
has. by Tammany polities, acquired
nearly as much. That is the striking
fact thrust upon the electors."

In order to show how much the Amer
ican people lose by not saving the pieces,
it may be interesting to know that under
the rules of the United States Treasury,
all mutilated bank notes are redeemod
according to the degree of mutilation.
A note wdh a certain portion of its su
pt r :ei-.l -u; face torn off, is never redeem
ed at it-f ill value, bu in proportion to
the quantity of superficial surface pre
sented fur re lemjition. Since green
backs came into fa.-hion, the redemption
division of th Treasury has been con
stantly engaged in redeeming this mutil
ated currency, and an account, of the dis
count has been kept, whicli .-hows an ag

Tn Decatur county. Mrs. (it: A. Crosby
acts as Con-table, Her husband is a
.lustice of the l'eaco. The Garden
Grove Enterprise says that Mrs. C. sum
mons jurors, Mibpeenas witnes-es, !tc.,
with admirable ceieiity and correctness.
This is not all .-he does. Early in the
sprimr, al ls the Enterprise :
"She put out a lare garden and tended
it till it matured, in pood shape, and
when the harvest came on, hands were
scarce and demanding wages, and al
though Mr. C. was perfectly able to pay
any price for his hands, this good, indus
trious woman mounted a self-raking ma
chine and ran it during the harvest, cut
tlieir own grain and that of several of
their neighbors, and actually made a full
hand during the whole harvest time.
Some of our readers may suppose what
we have said of Mrs. Cro.-by that she
puts her whole attention to out-door
work, to the detriment of her domestic
affairs, but such is not the case. There
is not a more tasty housekeeper, nor one
who takes greater pride in doing ail her
work, and doimr it well, too, than does
Mrs. Crosby. The facts are that she is
naturally a stirring woman, and has no
family to care for, except her husband
and herself, consequently her whole time
is not required indoors. As an evidence
of her tastes, we have in our residence a
very larpe collection of flowers from her
irarden, gathered and arranged by her
self. Says an excliAnge:
Pamphlet campaign documents may be
good may be handy for reference and
may reach reach a class who otherwise
would not post themselves. Hut the
best document is a good newspaper and
plenty of them. The papers of all parties
are the only true mirror of the times
though as distinct in matter as the men
who edit them. They give a force to
ideas which otherwise would have fallen
on waste places, and endow the dullest
stati-tics with life and vitality an im
possible feat in a labored essay. No cam
paign document can compare with them
in waking up the masses, or in value or
cheapness. Their very immaturities are
often attractive.

of Prussia understood. Austria will not
oppose German unity, and all the diiu
culties for consulation of that union will
proceed from the Southern govern
ment and the essence of a party
of independence nnd pro
gress. It is reported that Bazaine is
determined to support the imperial
cause with that view. He had offered to
surrender Metz, has bo nd him-eif not!
to tight against Germany, it amoved to
march out with all the honors of war,
and with the further proposal that he
should, if liberated on these conditions,"
assist in putting down the Republic and
the re-establishment of the Emperor Na
poleon. This propo.-iiion is declined hy Bis
mark, and in his refusal he states that
he is not satisfied with the, integrity of
the officers and soldiers, and believes the
army would not in general yield to ibis
intricue. This report has obtained con
siderable credence, since the King of
Prussia permitted Gea. Burbaki to pa-e
the Prussian lines.
