The reports of the horse disease in the
East look darker than ever, the late lei-
earams renortinir that it is spreading to
cattle, and that fifty cows have died of
t Q Orange, New Jersey.
Its present damaging effects unon
trade are almost incalculable, and should
it extend to cattle it will be increased
many fold.
It is said that where the afflicted aDi -
ua!s are worked, the disease takes the
form of glanders one of the worst ills
to which borsf. fleh is heir.
Tbe disease is abating somewhat in
Boston, and in Rochester, but seems to
baconie more fatal in New York city,
owing, perh?p., to the persistent work
ing of the Mck animals.

Mr. Hudson is an old friend of ours,
and we heartily rejoice to see him come

There is a great deal of fraud and cor-
ruption in the Republican party. They do
very Daa inings. luey lrank letters to
their friends, they run arouud looc
when they ought to be home; they
make speeches to elect themselves, and
they spend Grant's money outrageously
fiee so saj's the ad interim of the
maua ureuey papjr. it may dc so ; l
but let us look at the other side for a I
moment. Senator Hitchcock is home.
and has been during the campaign at
tending to the proper duties of the sta
tion. Senator Tipton has been cJnssez-
ing around after a tidal wave and spend
ing his time and the people's money (as
the opposition always claim when it is a
Grant man) in trying to break up the
prty anl ruin the men who have helped
him to become all of a Senator that he
Gen. Grant is at his post during his
duty and has been. Horace Greelev
has been swinging round a circle outside
of the wave until an ebb tide carried
him to Chappaqua and landed him on
the bed rock of defeat.
Gratz Brown, is Governor of Missou
ri, a great State, its wants are many,
the need of bis presence at home has
been felt severely, and the people and
press of bis State called loudly lor their
Governor to transact public business for
them during this summer, but Gratz
was away eating buttered watermelon
and gormandizing soft shell crabs, with
a sandwich of political speaking, be
tween whiles.
Sumner has gone to Europe, Schurz
is a Senator, and where has he been ?
Home, or at Washington? Not muci!
Tiumbull, the high minded, of course
hj has bren home ; he has made i,o
speeches, been attending to his Sena?o
rial duties very closely everybody knows
that! A'l these men are Senators or
State officers, all of them receive pay
from the United States, or the people;
very much the Fame as a "Grant Sena

lliss ilorgaa oa Hogs.
Miss Morgan, live stock market re
tarter for a New York paper, and one.
therefore, whose opinion on such matters
should possess 'weight, ays. that the
Berkshire and Essex hogs are preferable
as market hogs, to common native stock,
as the waste by shrinkaire in thoo im
proved breeds is less than one-half of
mat or tbe coarse native hogs. In this
we agree with her, but why does Miss
Morgan state also that the pure bred
Berkshire is entirely black, and that the
pure Essex is almost free from hair,
when these distinctions are not charac
teristics of theso breeds at all ? On the
contrary, the Berkshi re has wKif foot

Thursday, November 7; 1872.
The next thing that worries them,
and this time it is the New York Trib-
ne that has "conniptions," is the Frank
ing business. It thinks $170,000 would
not pay the bills for campaign docu
ments that Grant Senators and Grant
clerks have sent off to elect the "usurp-
er." Well, we'll tell you how it worked
in Nebraska. The first batch of poiiti
cal documents that came to Nebraska
fully franked by a Greeley Senator, we
suppose were Liberal documents. The
V. M. allowed them to slip through
somehow ; the next day or two a batch
of Grant documents came, and while the
officials were in a quandary yet, in re
gard to disposing of these "Pub. Docs'
they slipped out again, and we suppose j
were distributed.
But a few days elapsed when the
medical director of the Liberal pulse
m Uaiaba sounded the alarm or
corruption the Franking privilege was
being prostituted, &c, &c, &c : the
I people's money wasted, the country on
verge of. bankruptcy, paying mail con-
tracts and feeding Grant hirelings.
I Hardly was the ink dry on tbs Doctor's
article when a .huge sack worth 35
I cents of Liberal documents, addressed
-k. A. Allen, Chairman of the Lib-
"al Central Committee of Nebraska,"
I arrived at the PostoDGce.
1 L. A., you all know him, a fine gen
tleman, for a Democrat, too, marched
I into-the office, rear part, you sec, where
they wouldn't let "Itosey" com 3, and
grabbed his bag of "letters !" Our vir
I ,aous "lend, lo?t, stepped up and
showed the Hon. Chairman the Doctor's
tirade, and ventured to remark that
those "letters were all Greeley docu-
ments, and they were franked by
-, Serator from New York and
not onlythe sack franked, as one
may say, but the envelopes of each sepa-1
rate letter, or document, were franked,
and the envelope blank, so that the Hon.
A. cnairman couid nil in his lnends
names and the names of whosomever he J
. wished to convert and re-send, i. e., re-1
frank them to all the persons he desired I
to convert to the Liberal cause in Ne- I
The Hon. Chairman said the
Doctor was some kind cf a
but took his "lotters" and the govern
merit is still defrauded.
We have newspapers, the Graut men
own them, the Grant men run them,
Grant edits them all, 3Ioses ! what a
great man he must be. One daily pa-
per generally uses up an editor every
two years; but Grant edits em all, and
still lives to take his ' bourbon straight,
but not any straight Bourlon.
Let us look at this. Horace Greeley
owns a paper, called his paper, often.--It
has had great influence in its day. It
micht have soincaxrain if GtppW
elected. If it is dancerous for a Prosi-
dent to run newspapers, surely Horace
Grteley shou d not be elected for he can't
hdp but try and run the Tribune vehue he
lives, and sure the T, iburte. is running
him now.
Gralz Brown owned and edltm! a
newspaper, and depends largely on the
newspaper influence for his success. He
would USA tllPni a T.I in if nlnnfo.) nA
evidently knows how to doit, being bred
io the business. If controling newspa
pers is dangerous to our Liberahtes we
dou"t want Gratz then.
Carl Schuiz owns end edits a raper
and he aspired to a high cabinet "po
sish" under the new regime before the
tidal wave washed all hopes of success
away. Carl is a newspaper man he
ought not to be Premier. Gentlemen
and ad interims take notice wc are ahead
on men, on manners, on moraN, on votes
ond on cverytking, so far.

Trial cf Ecai Engines.
On the invitation of Professor Thurs
ton, of Stevens Institute of Technology
we lately attended a trial of road lot-o-motive
eneines, held at South Orange.
IS J. 1 he trial was und. r the direc
tion of the Professor, and was eminently
sawsracrory. i ne eninrs, of English
manuiaciurc, were ot ten horse power
nominal, solidly and very neatly con
structed, and were handled with the
greatest facility. They were turned in a
circle of thirty feet diameter outside of
the whcel-i racks, and one of them
hitched onto a train of ten loaded wa
one, weighing altogether twenty seven
and a bait' tons, went off in a verv hvelv
manner up a hill with a grade of one
foot in twenty. The power thus devel
oped wou!d be amply sufficient to draw
a ganir of a dozen plows through a tough
cod- The only question is whether or
not the usual difficulties experienced
with locomotives in the field would inter
fere with tha success of this engine. .It
would bo interesting to see the question
tested. Ea.

o- ilie tie'fit
The present campaign, or the different
roads to the White House, reminds me
of a circumstance of a friend of mine
who was traveling on horseback and
j came to a town on a river, and there was
J a railroad along side of the river; the
first man he met was a colored man. He
asked how far it was to a certain town,
below. He said, "Sah, if you take the
river, 12 miles, ifjoutake the wagon
road, 10 miles, if you get aboard the
I cars, j ou dah now."
lheald Democratic stage route was
once considered a popular road; but
having been out of use for the i&t
twelve years, it is badly washed, and
overgrown with mullen, cedar, grass and
dog fennel, it's considered a hard road
to travel. The Greeley road is thought
by some to be shorter and more direct
but it is hedged in on one side by rocks
of Protection, and Free Trade on the
other, recently we have understood that
a part of the bottom had fallen out.
But he that gets aboard the train that
General Grant rides on, is "dah now,"
for as North Carolina went so goes the
Union. ' Cosmopolite.

There is scarcely one in this large class
of our people, whether male or female,
old or young, that is not ambitioas to
rise in position and pay. Many a youth
of brilliant capacity sees the plodder
advanced above him, and thinks his own
merits underrated. Many a girl aspires
to that confidence of her employer, and
longs to be tieated as an equal rather
than an inferior. We propose to put
all these striving souls into the posses
sion of the secret by which they may at
tain their desire. The very first quality
taken into account by one who is looking
for help is trustworthiness. "Ia this
man or woman an eye servant?" is tbe
first question in the mind of the employ
er, careful though he is not to express
it. Ability, experience, skill, may be
requisite, but of what avail are they if
the man or woman cannot be depended
on? Suppose we could not trust ia the
steadfastness af nature we could not be
sure that the sun would rise at just such
a time every morning and set at the due
hour at night ; suppose we find water
running up hill, and weights rising sky
ward instead of failing to the eartn how
utterly baseless in such a world all our
plans aud hopes become. We want to
feel the same confidence in those we de
peud on as we feel in nature. "Louis
has been in uiy employ for fourteen
years, and he has never once disappoint
ed me. He is always prompt, faithful,
trustworthy." So said a friend the oth
er, day and straightway Louis, with his
sooty skin, took rank in our minds with
George Washington both men could
be trusted. God give us more of them !
There is a large class of men and women
who an succeed in life only as they link
their fortunes to those wise in turning
the rudder bands and shaping their
course to the desired haven. Left to
themselves, they drift. on an uncertain
sea, often upon the shoals, rarely into
deep soundings; smooth waters, cur
rents and eddies bear them now here,
now there; upon the rocks, upon the
sand. Best it is for such to hitch with
a man3'-stranded cable to some powerful
craft, and fpeed direct over the main
The advantage need not be at all one
sided. .Dropping the metaphor, there
is no man in heavy business tha voes
not need a steadfast, trustworthy, : .1 .
handed helper. Loes he find Mich .
one? How soon the world knows it, i.
this fame right-Land helper becomes
partner in the business. A few months
ago " Josie,'' an American girl,
expressed a willingness to go into an
American kitchen and keeps it clean,
provided she were treated in all respects
as an equal. Scores of letteis were ad
dressed to thi column, clamoring for
Emma Jo.-ie "for some one," said thev
all, "that we can trust." The reputa
tion one wins who is always where he is
expected to be, keep doinj; as he is ex
pected to do, is better than gold, more
valuable than rubies. This will place
him on the roliof honor in the estima
tion of all noble souls. This will put in
his hands the golden key that, opens the
palace of eternity, for no human lips that
will utter the words, "Thou hast been
faithful over a few things; I will make
thee i uler over many things, enter into
the joy of thy Lord." Tribune.
