there uut lea manic charm, a witchery
of no ordinary kind, in a book that will

Very few writers make one fjd this so

One of the best political notes of the

'"I hope so. my son ; but why do you

The Omaha Ifemf;( can never forget
nor forgive Butler. Every incident that
may come up in our political matters, or
our State government is compared in
some way to the "Butler case," and the
continued cry of "we told you how it
would be ; it's ja-t like the Butler case,"
will ring in our ears, we suppose, for the

We have just been reading the very
able address of Mr- Woolworth, at the
first annual commencement of the Ne
There is much food for thcueht there-
in, and it bears evidence ot the culture
and research of the arthor's min 1. We
should like to publish the whole address,
ut cannot in the fpace we have to
spare for such purpose.
We extract a few gems. It opens by
On the firt dav of March, 1S67, Ne

few months over five years old. No

is Luge a cultivated area, as many miles
t railroad, as lartre deposits in h r
banks, as our's can boast ro-dav. These
are just eauc of congiatulatioii. They
ire facts, which may justlv ultimate our
pride, and stmul.ite our efforts.
His subject is, "the duty of the State
to provide the higher instruction," and
it is divided by two questions. "What
is the true function of government,"
and "What is the higher instruction ?"
Of the first it says this :
Diver.-e opinions have been held as to
the proper sphere of government. One
is, that it may concern itself with the
most personal anairs of the individual.
It may dictate the dogmas of his fa th.
and litfht the lurid fire- of Smithfield
and the auto-da fe. It presort be
tho amusements, the fashions,
the hours aud watresof work, and puces
of food of the people. It establishes
monopolies, charters enterprises, regu
lutes trade, and subsidir.es industries
It enacts m svstrni and (tiiir-j of" .'ilnr-ii
tioti and enlorc s its blessings by K?nal
sanctions. It enters on its police rolls
the birth of every child, the history ot
every family, the character ot every
out. Like the Min, "it goeth forth
from the uttermost part of the heavens.
and runneth about unto the end of it
again, and chore is nothing hid from the
fhe opposite theory rives liicnse to
opinion, and liberty to heresy. It con
signs all charities to private benevolence;
tlie boon it oilers suffering, is In edoni
fpuii it- intrusion. It commits iudu-
tiies to the laws of trade, and prices to!
the regulation of demand and supply.
it encourages soniiee otilv' bv tlie re
wards its own triumph win: entrusts
education to private care aud sujt:rvis
ion and the whole social order to the
wayward irregular, erratic operation of
individual enterprise, eriertv. impulse.
According to its gospel, the only attri
bute tit government is to restrain crime ;
ii' only symbol, . policemen
The-e two theories, one, that truvern
me nt should d- everything, the other
that it should do nothing, are both false.
Tin tli lies in the t!u media.
Some familiar illustrations will discover
it to us. '
Speaking of the self-made man, Mr.
W. thus illustrates his idea :
Some times, one appears from this
clas whom nature has bestowed such an
afll lencj of gilts, that, m il bout treading
the toilson c part ot the schools, he can,
unaided, attain to the highest achieve
ments. You have not forgotten the
story' of htm, born in the humblest sta
tion, who, a rail-splitter, a raftsman.
without early education, unaided bv anv
adventitious circumstances, became tbe
counsel, whose advocacy cast a spoil up
on jurors, an 1 whose erudition and re-si-tle.-s
logi.j constrained tho decisions of
courts ; a statesman of intuitive wisdom.

$What I have said of the numbers of
young men leaving the country for the
town, is true of the ruh in'o the pro
fessions. Young men forget that it is not
their occupation, but their faithfulness
to its duties, which is honorable; that
suo-ess, service, usefulness, in an hum
ble business, is better than failure in oiie
to whose .responsibilities they arc une
qual. It is bttter to be a g cd stage
driver than a poor lawyer ; a good wood
lawyer than a qtiajl doctor.
Remember this, young men, and also
the following, which experience Imi
most fully proved true : "There is al
ways room at the top,' but you must
work for it, or as Mr Woolworth says

lonr years, to gain the heii-hts to which
such men mount, is not at'racMTe ; but
it is given to only a few, a very few, to
be anything but plodders.
The whole address is full of sound
sensend practical wisdom. The prin
ter or proof reader thouah, have made
some sad mistakes which would mar the
work for a young student as a reference
in the way of spelling. We can hardlv
suppose that Mr W. said, "The mind
tnniis with asprration, or that: anew
revelation "impeIs" anything; or yet.
that "a great principle is wrought ourFit
by the philosopher," nor that tae farmer
has learned "empmcal" facts. '
Aside from this we are pleased with
the address and obliged to the friend
who sent it.

Correspondence ot the Cincinnati Gaaette.
. A day among the newspapers here has
convinced me that whatever Mr Gree
ley and his friends may nay in public tor
the world to hear, they have given up
the gauie lor the I residency as lost.
1 here is great speculation among; the
newspaper fraternity as to the course of
the tribune, after the election, and ru
mor says that the stockholders of that
paper are to hold a meeting soon to de
cide upon a policy for them to pursue,
so confident are they that Mr. Gneley's
deleat is certain, and some change will
be ntcessary to save the financial inter
ests of the Concern. The Trihuite. has a
a Republican constituency behind it
which ihe result of the election proved
has not changed its political faith, aud
as a DemiK'iatic organ it would have
neiiLer place nor support. Its present
editor, Whitelaw Reid, is perhaps as
much responsible for the altered tone
and temper of the pa er which was no
ticeable before the Cincinnati Conven
tion which gave birth to the Greeley
phase of the Liberal movement as any
one person who has had a voice in its
aff iis, at.d he is also credited with do
ing more than any one man to secure
Mr. Gteeiey's nominati m Th;s gentle
th man i- ta'ked ot as the first one to le
s&ttificcd after his defeat Mr. Gree
ley says, if defeated, he shall retire to
Chappaqua and spend the balance of his
davs in retirement from pull c affairs.
He is thought to be too partisan ir his
constitutional make up to be a successful
editor ot an independent newspaper, and
it seems not un'ike.y that the Trilmne.
may pass under entirely new uianage
Mr. Dana, of the New York Sn,
s:iys, it is po-sshie, but not at ail prob
able, that Mr. Greeley will fie the next
I resident, and the editor of the own
savs that with a secret satisfaction which
he cannot coni-eal. for it is well known
here that he whs thoioutrhly disgusted
with the nomination at Cincinnati. So
ure was he that Charles Fiancis Adams
would b' the nominee, that he had or
d red to be prepared an elaborate glori
fication ut that gentleman for pub ica-
tion as soon as the fact should be made

Mr Tilton, the Adonis of the Greeley
movement, editor nt the (mhien Aye
and bi grapher of Victoria Woodhull, is
very much inclined to think the Liberal
movement a lost einse. Unlike the
editor of the Snn, Mr. Tilton sincere y
regrets this defeat. He says "tbe Adndn
istraM n boutrht everything though,"
and dwell.- with sadnes upon the Mntr of
things to which the country is brought.
He says the proscription practiced upon
the opposition is something tearful to
contemplate. An evidence of this pro
scription, to his mind, is found m the
fact that Charles runiner is spoken ot
with bitterness in Massachusetts. He
was surpii-e I to find this "great man.
b cuu-e he had airain made a sacrifice of
his se fish interest, tor the maintaineuce
ot principle, was almost hated where for
hall a century he had been idolized.
"Why," said he, they openly d nounce
hitu as a tiaitor."
The unwillidgness of the people to
accept treason to principle approvingly
is termed proscription, and the commit
tee and bureaus having in charge the
supplying of lecturers for the coming
season, in preferring Mts. Liveruiore
and Mrs. Stanton to Anna Dickinson, is
spoken of as the pernicious mflu'-nce of
political partisanship. Mr. luton eave ;
it as his opinion that the cotnine speech
of Anna at Cooper Institute, which the
tribune has announced with a flourish
of t lumpers to be made on Monday,
evening in favor of Mr. Greeley's elec
tion. will c-st her $10,000.
Ilartter's Wrrfcfy is recognized as one
of the most successful elements of the
newspaper press egaaged in working for
the success of the Republican party,
which success is due in great part to
rast. who e inimitable caricatures have
won world-wide reputation and influence.

This is what we found on our table
after several dajs ahaencc.
Dr. Latham, it appears has been 'do
ing it again," in the way of an Address
before the Board of Agriculture and the
people, at Lincolu, during the State
Fair. W cannot give his Address in
full, but will give bur readers the closing
sentences. They correspond well with
some ideas of our own, very frequently-
advanced, viz: That from the West
eventually will come our great souroe of
supply and aemand read this :
In addition to this mining demand,
all the grazing regions west of you will
look, to this trans-Missouri grain belt foi
supplies. In this region whicfc I have
indicated there is new a million of min
ing and graz ng population, nine ont of
ten ot whom are dependent npon other
regions tor food. The one million of
this decade will be ten millions in the
m-xt, aud so on, increasing at a progres
sive rate that will tax all the energies of
your future millions, and the capacity of
your tapidly increasing area of produc
tion, to keep pace with. In order to
properly estimate the value of this de
mand, you must bear in mind another
importaut principle of trade, which is,
"that all consumption is in proportion
to the value of the labor of the consum
ing classes." The average wages of the
miner in the Rocky Mountains are $'24
per week, whi e the same laborer in
Great Britain. Germany, or Russia, re
ceives less than one-sixth that sum.
The miner that you ought to strive to
supply will cousume as much as six
foreign miners. fhe trade of one
million gratiers and miners in our own
mnutains i worth more thin that of six
millions of miners, operatives and arti
sans in Europe, for which the agriculture
of all our States is comretimr. at such
ruinous disadvantage-. You are situated
at the very gateway of these mountain
regions, and to you, in this fertile belt of
the Missouri valley, must their present
and future population first come for va-
ri d products, pounne into vonr Iud in
return thfir gold and silver millio. s.
Ihe distance you are from the Lisfern
seaboard, which lias been vour great dis
adva 'sage heretofore, will be your ad
vantage now. The farm hinds west of
the Missouri, which are now low-priced,
should b the highest in value f any
in the United States. The farm lands
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois are worth
from $ GO to $100 per acre. From your
nearness to this new and better market.
I believe that your products will sell for
higher prices thau I heirs, und conso-
qaen'Iv 1 cannot see why your lands
should not be equally as valuable as
Your aim and effort, then, should be
to study the wants of this new m: rket,
and 'o labor to produce what their wants
demand. In-fead of strivinr for lines
f communication to the east, vonr ef

Rather important wa should think;

"Does the Teacher seem to have pow

"Is the relation between teacher and

"Does the teacher talk too mach ?"
These "talks" are by the IVesident of
the Illinois Normal University, and seem
designed as a guide to school room ex

at all events.
