Th Lincoln Xiutminan has changed
fess that this particular meeting of the

Said article would have been com

upon the readers of the ILrkald. espe

I)r. JoKiiSoaV Benj. Franklin, all the
sogeS and philosophers of history have
declared that the greatest human hap
piness and the nearest to perfect con
tentment are to be found m the mid
dle walks of life; that a reasonable
competence is better for the develojv
ment of a happy and prosperous race
of people than either thd extremes oT
wealth or poverty .
This is as true in the development of
the judgment and the application of
political . science, as" it L simply in re
gard to the qualities of the mind and
heart. For instance, neither the ex
tremely rich or the poor, ignorant and 1
vicious aro the most suitable persons
to make and control the laws of a
country. Tho ono is prejudicial by its

Latest iiecoiints from the field of In
dian war, represent Gen. Davis as having-
employed Sfcack-Xnsty Jim and
some other nastier Indiaii yet, to huut
r).p Captain Jack, the great chief of the
Moderns.' Three of "thesr; traitors to
their own people, not to say thieves
and murderers in general, have been
arnled with SpringSeld rifles and hor
ses for the pursuit and capture of Cap
tain Jack. They1 propose: to kill or
capture hini, and Gen. Davis is said to
be satisfied of their loyalty (f ). This
is the telegraph report at present. AVe

not seem possible that an officer of
high rank in the regular army of the
United States, would; ..hold, one mo

throats and outrageously cowardly
traitorous villains as this Shack-Nasty
Jim, Hooka Jin), and Bogus Charley
must be. All these parties were pres
ent at the murder of Gen. Canby, and
two of them, at least, taking an active
part therein. The full measure of
their other murdera .and atrocities is
untold ; nnd unrecorded. To cap the
climax of cowardice and hiaod-thirsti-i
ness, they come into our camp and now
of wealth, which always brings in its offer to turn round and kill or capture

If this. .theory is correct it follows
that whatever measures tend to ele
vate and raise the lower strata of so
ciety to the middle and more intelli
gent plane, or curb and . check the
grasping, .ambitious tle-ires of; those
who by fortune or accident are greatly
elevated above their fellow-men, must
be the true theory of a republican
democratic government, and it is.
j It is very doubtful if the reduction
j of the mass of laboring men's hours
! of labor from ten to eight, does increase
their happiness and prosperity. If
they would employ their leisure time
in study and cultivation, or if.'as one
writer suggests, they will earn better
wages, economize more closely, marry
more frequently, and thus become bet
ter citizens, then would the eight hour
law be an object devoutly to be prayed
It is to be feared that these increased
hours of non-labor are in too many in
stances spent in dissipation or in tlin
pursuit of the w orst antl most dissolute
aocts and tho secondary products of
their manufacture froni producer and
cohsituier, at the lowest possible
cost, is the worthy and mot desirable
object of the dayi . '
We find moreover, that rates charged
by transportation companies are exor
bitant as Compared with the necessary
cosWiuul ire very prohibitory in theirl
character at points remote from the
great markets. AVhlle Mr. Josiah
Quificy and M. It. It. Ferguson have,
demonstrated that it is iossible to
carry a bushed of grain from St. Louis
or Chicago-to the sea board by rail for
six cents," wo believe tea cents perl
bushel is ample to do so. The statis
t tea -show - that during - the hist
live years the charge for such
enrriage lias averaged ever thlrty
6m; cents from Chicago and' fiver
thirty seven cents from St. Louis, cr
from three to rivet times the necessary
cost The rates by. watei .while con
siderable lower, are still much above
necessary cost, and in the northern
part: of. the country ate inoperative
duringthe winter season. '
. In view of these facts yolir committe
believe that due encouragement should
be cive ito the opening of new routes
and tllefmprovement of tho old ones,

rates between all parts of the republic

Td these speeches' General . W. IL
Jitekson. of Tennessee, Was called upon
by the chairman to rescind. The
(reneral is a genuine Sotithenier, itf the
chivalric days, but he now walks in
the paths of p-ace, and on. this occa- I
sion preferred to meet the representa- :
tives from the various sections of the
West in one general cause4, that of ad- j
vancing tue -agricultural liiteresis oi
the country. Those who believed the
business . of the agricultural Interest
was to crush out any other interest la
bored under. a mistake. One could not
prosper without the. 'existence of the
other. All ought to be recognized in
their preper place. One o'f these inte
rests hinges upon the other. The agri
cultural interest simply asks, aild if
nece-ssai'y, will exact, tluif its-rights be
observed. O'her than this , there is
nothing analagous bet Ween the two.
The General thought that meetings
would not only bring about a mutual
understanding in this respect, but also
tend to harmonize the various sections
of the country disturbed by strifes anel
