Uallrvaxla em Aerlealtur.
The full effect of railroads upon our
farming population and upon their habits
of lifts, roo-ies of farming Linds of
crops, etc., I truppof-e can hardly now be
estimated. Their general political effect
in uniting and assimilating the parts and
5eople of every county, however much
cprecated by lovers of the curious and
unique hi the developments of human
nature, is one to be rejoiced at by pa
triots and philanthropists. Human na
ture loses its narrowness of thought and
its bigotry, and advances made in any
department of human thought or practi
cal life spread rapidly, and the general
advancement of civilization goes on with
accelerating speed. I have seen it inti
mated that the unification of Germany,
which we may now perhaps regard as
substantially aerompHshed, is more the
result of railroads facilitating intercourse
betwee her petty States than of any
master-strokes of Prussian statesman
ship ; and no doubt as time advances,
and these iron ways of traffic and travel
penetrate the by-places of Europe, wo
hall find them an influence more potent
for peace, good-will, and general pro
gress than any, or perhaps all other
causes combined. Travelers tell us,
somewhat regretfully, that the charac
teristic costumes, manners and dialects,
of the formerly isolated rural districts
are rapidly di?appeariug, and peoples,
dress, manners and language, becoming
homeogeneous. The end of this process
when all Asia in girt with railways even
to the extent that India is to-day, when
the African Central and I'atagonian
Shorelines run through trains without
change of cars, can be only partially and
imperfectly imagined, but I more than
half believe that the "thousand years of
peace" will eee the land gut with rail
ways and the ocean-depths with the mag
netic wires, and that another iron age
will brinz the uolitisal millenium.
But I started to speak of the effects of
railways upon American agriculture
rather than upon general civilization.
The topic is less pleasing in some of its
more immediate aspects, though not, I
cresume. in its more reniate consenuen
ces. It brings in unpleasant thoughts of
the railroad gamblers and swindlers who
have abused their trusts as railway offi
cers to plunder the people, and even the
stockholders who elected them. It sug
gests freight charges that consume the
fanner's crop tiefore it can reach tide
water, and express rates that leave a very
narrow margin of profits, if any to the
fruit-grower. The producer and the
consumer are taxed, sometimes plun
dered, to support extravagant and un
warranted expenses of management, and
to pay usurious rates of interest on
watered stock. Such is the visible pres
ent, with which all honest men are at
war in railroad management, behind
which it is sometimes difficult to discern
the future advantage of a system so in
iquitously managed in some of its parts.
Yet the advantages of railways to the
agriculturist are numerous and indisputa
ble. I do not reckon one of them to be,
though many would, the additional fa
cility with which the farmer can despoil
his land of its better constituents in the
shape of grain, and send it to enrich the
fields of 2sew or Old England. But the
increased facility of exchange, whereby
each part of the country is enabled to
grow what it can grow best, and send it
to less favored sections in quantity, even
though perishable in its nature, is a de
cided advantage. It is no small mutual
benefit to Delaware and New England
that the peaches of the former State can
be placed in the markets of the latter in
a few hours. It is well for Illinois, as
well as for New York, that the fat bul
locks of the Sucker State can have so
rapid, and, compared with earlier meth
ods of carriage, so cheap a transit to the
metropolis. And these are only speci
mens of a great variety of instances that
might be adduced.
Then there is the advantage of a more
general equalization of opportunities.
All men are, in one sense, near the mar
ket, and the farmer near the great cities
or towas docs not have the same relative
superiority that he once did, except in
the 'ae of very bulky products. The
daily or weekly account of markets
reaches one man but a few hours later
than another; and the new ideas and
new improvements in farm implements,
seeds, or live stock are spread rapidly
over wide extents of territory. Thus,
a more homogeneous, more intelligent,
and advanced agriculture is the result,
and no part of the country suffers at the
expense of another. I see that the Illi
nois correspondent of the Countn Gen
tleman, whoe ideas are always worth
noting, whether we agree with them or
not, takes the ground thr t the ton ns arc
not going to thrive as well as the cities,
under the new order of railways. I have
seen something of this kind indicated in
the arguments of others, who suppose a
town loses its advantage in being made
a station upon a railroad, itrstead or a
terminus. But whether this be so or
not, which I doubt, if it prove anything,
it i3 the welcome fact that the present
" necessary evil of commercial towns may
yet pass away, and future aggregation
of human beings, based upon a higher
law ot self-interest than that of trade,
may take their place-
Railways tend, perhaps, to special rath
er than mixed farming, because of the
facility of exchange and the greater ease
with which the farmer can dispose of a
large amount of one staple. And while,
in view of many results, I wod strongly
doprecate the growing of a single crop,
yet there is aa opposite extreme which
may be avoided, and a greater simplicity
of management reached than some of
the advocates of mixed farming would
adept. Thus railways have created nu
merous exclusively iruit tarms in South
ern Illinois. Many of these have been
nlanted exclusively to one kind of fruit,
as the peach or pear. The result is
often, perhaps generally, disastrous trom
this extreme tendency. Yet, a fruit
farm, planted 6 m to furnish fruit all
the year round strawberries, raspber
ries, gooseberries, currants, blackberries,
peaches, pears and apples, all in their
order can hardly in any season make a
total failure. A similar variety within a
fixed ranze may be allowable in a stock
farm, perhaps even in a grain farm, if
the inexorable law ot reuoenng back to
the land that takeu from it, in the shape
of grain, in the new form of a proper
fertilizer, bo observed.
But tha future farmer, whatever else
he be, will be wonderfully different from
the farmer of the past. He will in the
railroad age now dawning upon us be a
quicker moving and quicker thoughted
TltU.ll He will need steam ploughs, and
other appliances beyond the means of
moat farmers, ana cenc win come w
operation in farming, or at least in the
um of implements, ramihanty with
pecialitiee will make hun more of an
y, of yesterday?
Star King, when asked to define the
daflerence between Lniversalists and
UniS, replied that "Umerlita
believed that God was too good to damn
men eternally, and the Unitarians be
lieved that men were too good to Iks
IIew Knln la orraed.
To understand the philosophy of this
phenomenon, essential to the very exist
ence of plants and animals, a few facts,
derived from observation and a long train
of experiments, must be remembered
Were the atmosphere at all times at a
uniform temperature, we should never
have rain, hail or siow. The water ab
sorbed by it is evaporation from the sea
and the earth's surface would descend in
an imperceptible vapor, or cease to be
absorbed by the air, when it was fully
saturated. The absorbing Jpower of the
atmosphere, and consequently its capa
bility to retain humidity, is proportion
ably rreater in cold than in warm air.
The air near the Burface of the earth is
warmer than it is in the region of the
The higher we ascend from the earth
the colder we find the atmosphere.
Hence the perpetual snow on very high
mountains in the hottest climates. Now,
when, from evaporation the air is highly
saturated with vapor though it be in
visible if its temperature is suddenly
reduced by cold currents descending from
above, or rushing from a higher to a
lower latitude, its capacity to retain
moikture is diminished, clouds are formed
and the result is rain. Air condenses as
it cools, and, like a sponge filled with
water and compressed, pours out water
which its diminished capaoity cannot
hold. How singular, yet how simple is
an arrangement for watering the earth.
Hcien tijic Am erica n .
How Vitnderbllt Started.
Every little while the newspapers con
tain an account of Vanderbilt' s begin
ning. Most of these accounts are apoc
ryphal. His own statement of his first
real success is this :
He was a young man on Staten Island.
He was a master of rowing athletic,
strong and daring. One night a stranger
came to the landing and wanted to be
rowed across to Gowanus. The night
was dark and stormy, and the wind blew
a gale. Not a boatman could be found
who would leave. The landlord said,
"There is nobody can row you over but
Corn Vanderbilt" for he was so called.
It was doubtful, he said, whether he
would do it. Vanderbilt was found, and
in answer to the reouest replied : ''It's
pretty rough, but if you'll give me ten
dollars, lay down in my boat and not stir,
and do just what I bid you, I'll try it."
He rowed the man over and back in
safety. As soon as he landed on Staten
Island, the stranger said: "Young
man, how would you like to run an oppo
sition steamboat?" "Nothing would suit
me better," was the reply. "Have you
pluck enough to obey orders?" said the
stranger. " I have," was the response.
" Suppose I should tell you to run into a
steamboat, what would you do?" "Run
into her, by ." The bargain was
scaled amid the storm that night, en the
island, and Vanderbilt entered on his
well known career as a steamboat man.
It will be noticed that the BUR
LINGTON & MISSOURI RIVER
RAIL ROAD is like a tree with three
forks or branches, for it has three Termini
in the State of Nebraska.
1st. At COUNCIL BLUFFS AND
OM AHA, at which latter place its trains
make close connections with those cf the
Union Pacific Rail Road for all points cn
the Pacific Roads and the Pacific Coast.
2d. At PLATTSMOUTH, where its
trains make close connection with the
trains of the Burlington & Missouri
River Rail Road in Nebraska, which lat
ter Rail Road runs for fifty-five miles
through the country lving SOUTH OF
THE PLATTE RIVER, to Ashland
and LINCOLN, the Capital of the
State of Nebraska. A glance at a cor
rect map of the United States will de
monstrate the fact to travelers bound to
all that section of country South of the
Platte River that the Burlington Route
is the only direct line through ; and that
they should not be persuaded to go to
Omaha, or any other point, in order to
reach that country, for they will find that
in doing so they lose from 24 to 3G hours,
and have an additional expense of more
than six dollars. In short, the Shortest,
Cheapest and Only Direct Route to that
country is via Burlington and Platts
mouth. 3d. At Hamburg and Nebraska City
to whic-h point it runs by means of its
Branch Road from Red Oak Junction to
Nebraska City through trains running
from Chicago to Nebraska City. This is
the only Railroad running Direct from
the East to Nebraska City and the coun
try adjacent thereto, and passengers by
taking the Burlington Route will save
delay at junction points, and the ex
pense consequent thereon. Lantze's In

Jrom Nebraska City Chonicle, 11th. '
The building on the corner of 8th and
Main streets, occupied by Geo. Clininn
narrowly escaped burning last night. The
occupants did not retire until al'tertwo
o'clock this morning and the work must
have been done after that time. The ef
fort to burn the building is well under
stood from the signs still apparent. A
cork was found near the corner of the
building, which evidently came from a
vessel containing coal oil, and there is no
doubt but the oil was thrown up on the
corner of" the house and then set on fire.
The lumber is charred for about six feet
up, and a number of matches, half burn
ed lie on the ground. The quantity of
coal oil was not sufficient to overceme
the dampnest of the wood, ana after
burning a short time on the surface the
fire went out.
The object for setting out such a fire
cannot be conjectured. Several families
reside in the row of buildings, and many
human lives would be endangered from
such a conflagration as was evidently
contemplated. It seems to have been a
desperate maniac or a villian whose
heart is already black with murder. Let
some villian be shot in the act and the
work will stop not until.
A Southern paper spoke of "Turkey
showing her teeth," whereupon Mr.
Greeley wrote to the editor th it none
but hen turkeys have teeth. The hen
turkey gathers the food and chews it,
and the gobbler is called to gobble it.
Lady Pigott, an English lady famous
a3 an agriculturist, is now nursing the
wounded at Metz. She describes the
Prussians as " loud and consequential "
the French "pale and haggard," and
both weary of war.
A juror of a Philadelphia court lately
requested that the jury might be called
into the court room for instruction upon
an important point; which, being grant
ed, ho arose and asked the honorable
couit whether it was strictly legal when
one juror could not see the evidence in
the same light aa the others for the rest
to bring him to their view by knocking
him down with a chair. As the dam
aged condition of his head lent a certain
pathos to his appeal, the court instruct
ed the jurr that there was no law au-
thonzing tbat mole ot persuasion.

Bay op Sam an a, Feb. 2, 1871.
San Domingo at last ! Wade's first
exclamation when he caught sight of
the island and was, "San Domin go
to ," well, no matter where. Wade,
you know, belongs to Greeley's church.
When we reached our anchorage in
Samana Bay the shore was fairly black
with people. They had come trom all
fiarts of the Island to see us. When we
anded seventeen distinct revolutionary
factions were there to welcome us, each
professing to represent the island, and
claiming the honor of receiving the Com
missioners. As each delegation had a
speech-maker, and they all "orated" to
gether in the heathenish language, the
effect may be imagined.
They selected Fred Douglas, by com
mon consent, as the most important man
in the party, he coming nearer to their
idea of a representative American citi
zen than any other, and getting around
him the seventeen committees of recep
tion howled seventeen speeches of wel
come into his ear. He was driven al
most distracted by it and has been com
pelled to carry his ear in a sling ever
It was terrible on our interpreters, too,
and three are now raging lunatics in con
sequence. I wanted to take down one of
the speeches, at least, but the interpre
ter toli me I couldn't do it unless I took
down the speaker and got it way from
him by main force. These Domingosters
so hate to give up anything. French,
English and Spanish have in turn tried
to make them give up their little island
without success. It remains to be seen
whether or no they will give up to the
Fred Douglas, who has a sort of grim
enjoyment of a joke, finally made the
committeemen understand, by talking a
little African to them (having" brought a
little African along with him for that
purpose), that he was not the head of
the party, but that Steel, who was stand
ing by with a look of supreme disgust
upon 1113 countenance, was bossing the
Then they invested Sicel. and proceed
ed to bombard him with their welcomiug
orations. The General resisted, an
there was some prospect of the welcom
ing party getting into a "fight mit Sigel."
But sturdy old Ben Wade'd 'em one all
around, and harmony was restored.
Afterward I ascertained from one of
our interpreters the buiden of the re
ception speeches. The speakers (bar
bers, for the most part), were tolerably
unanimous in welcoming us with dirty
hands to dishonorable shaves !
They were somewhat divided in their
sentiments regarding the annexation of
the Limed States to San Domiiigo.
While one speaker was assuring Wade's
right ear that they would take his old
Mates under his protection if thev would
behave themselves, another was com
mitting himself to a different policy in

The effect of this was ouite distract
ing on Dr. Howe, of the Boston Idiot
Asylum. He stood apart, gazing upon
the scene hko one who felt his senses
gradually leaving him. I was alarmed
for the Doctor and approaching him I
asked Howe he felt.
"U. Hum !" said he, as a smile ap
proaching imbicility flickered across his
I told him that I did.
"Oh !" he cried, falling upon my neck
and bursting into tears, "take me, oh,
take me back to my idiots !"
The tears saved him, although they
ruined my collar, and he became calm-
But who can describe the scene when
they attempted to escort us up town.
The seventeen revolutionary parties, each
of which claimed to run the island, had
engaged accommodations for us at seven
teen different hotels, and each delegation
attempted to march us off to thehotel
they had selected. Having ascertained
that Ben Wade was the most important
one in the commission, they all went for
Ben. They pulled him this way and
hauled him that, the old insn swearing
like a trooper all the time. No sooner
would one party succeed in shoving him
into an omnibus for the "L'Ouverture
House," or the "Baez Hotel," or some
other of the seventeen hostleriesthat ex
pected him, than a rival faction would
haul him out through the window.
Again a clan would seize him and march
him off up the hill, when another party
would attack the escort, recapture and
march him down again.
After such treatment as this, Old Ben
finally reached a hotel utterly exhausted
in charge of the last successful party of
iiaytien revolutionists, with nothing on
but one stocking and a paper collar.
The remaining revolutionists finally com
promised by each seizing as distinguished
a man as they could vet hold of and
marching him off to their headquarters,
and the sound of their seventeen bands
as they marched away in different direc
tions, was stunning I can assure you.
We newspaper correspondents, as a
general thing, were not regarded, and
straggled off where we pleased. There
was a line of street cars running up
town, but there was a sign on them,
"No white folks admitted. So they
didn't do us any good.
