It is iiujvwilile a stuble hou!'! W. e built
that it will nllow tho animal one luilf tho
freedom be enjoys when loose out of doors.
Most sialics are built so ns to ngiiraviiU'
llu'ir inseparable cruelly. The. Hooting
slants from the inniujer to n putter, which
runs ut tho horse' heels. Now, if horses
bo in n' field, niul nt resi, they will nlways
be seen Rtmidin"; upon n piee, of ground
that declines in precisely the oppo.siie di
rection. The fait is, our inoih-rn mables
throw tho Mress upon the back hinews or
flexor tendons, und lluis prepare urnny nn
uniinal for the injury he afterwards iinox
peetedly experiences. Nor is thu all : the
stall is perfectly at variance with the habits
of tho horse; he is evidently precarious,
or lives anions; crowds of his fellow-creatures
; the stall dooms him to solitude,
and the groom sits behind to see he does
not put his nose over tho divisions, only to
look at a comrade. In many stables the
stall is so small that tha horse cannot turn
round ; he can tie down perfectly nt ensc
in a very few ; yet, there he stands, look
iiv at n bare wall, with the stress upon
his back sinews, for a period, varying from
twenty to twenty-three hour during the
day. The horse, in any condition beyond
the dominion of man, is necessitated to
walk, in order to crop the herbage on
which he exhists; when under human
protection, ho changes a life of ceaseless
activity for one of all but continuous stag
nation. Is it to be wondered then that the
sinews often fail ! Or is it a cause of com-
Iilaint n gainst nature, that tho feet and
egs so often obligo man to allow his
wretched servant to remain idle? The
foot is the most valuable part of the horse;
but, to preserve the foot, continued motion
is imperative. This is ilenieil ; n condi
tion tho very contrary is enforced ; and
then man in his presumption, blames na
ture beeaitfO the foot of the lurse. is so
often tho seat of disease.
Iiixvse Imixos are better than stalls. Hut
in those the injury is only lessened, not
removed. Tao horse has a loving heart
liestowed upon him. He must love some
thing. Lambs, dogs, cuts, goats, fowls,
&c, every creature he is permitted to see,
by turns have become tho object of his
affections. Mr. Maine records, that
horses have defeated the utmost ellorts of
man to get them into condition when a
companion has lioeii taken away from the
next stall, or when the animal has been
stabled alone. Hales after the fashion of
iniliirry stables, ore to bo preferred to
wooden partitions, unless they be made
much lower than at present. The stall
bhoe.ld be made a few feet wider than is
the custom to build it. The floor should
be slant from behind towards tho middle,
where the gutter may be placed, .and then
be gently raised and afterwards incline
towards tho manger. A notion is abroad
that tho present flooring carries oil" the
urino of the mare, but worn Mables paved
in the manner we t, Ivocate, they would
equally cuiiy oil' the urine of geldings.
The point in depute is, surely, then, in
Most stables, moreover, are kept much
too warm. Not that uny or heated by
means of a stove or lire, but the animals
doomed to reside within them are doomed
to breathe the same air over and over
again, until it becomes hot, and smells so
strongly of ammonia, as to sting the eyes
and take away the breath of the stranger
who unexpectedly enters them. This is
not warmth ; but foulness, (ihh, and abomi
nation, which should immediately be ah
jured. Let a stable be freely ventilated ;
it cannot have too much air at any period
of the year ; its inhabitants and the shel
ter of the walls will always make sutli
cient difference, especially when the mode

The nian 'or mid hay-rut k are lnt low,

acal fumes, which always have a tenden

The loose boxes ou;ht to have their
sides smooth, no nail or projection of nny
kind should be permitted, as the animal is
apt to tear ilself against such substances.
When designed ns Kiibstitutes for stalls, it
is siillii'ient to have the partition close
half-way up, and the remainder formed
of open rails, whereby tho horses are en
abled to ieo one another, nnd much of the
dulness of their lives is removed. Every
box ought to be drained by inenn3 of n
It is a question much disputed whether
tho litter should be removed or not during
the day-time. In the great majority it is
entirely taken from the fore, and but a
small portion left under the hind feet ; and
this method seems to be so good as to ad
mit of nr improvement as a general rule,
though of course indivi-lual cases will re

It is of more importance to the farmer
than is generally supposed, that a certain
proportion of his farm stock should con
sist of sheep. Speaking on this point, It.
S. Fay. of Lynn, recently remarked nt an
Agricultural meeting in llostun (as re
ported in the N. E. Farmer), "Sheep are
gleaners nfter other stock, and will help
keep the cattle pastures in good condition
by U ing turned into them occasionally, to
eat the coarser plants which have been
left. They will enrich the land. There
is no manure so fertilizing as that of
sheep, and it does not so rendily waste by
exposure as that of other animals. Sheep
may be made exceedingly useful in help
ing to prepare land for a crop. A Ger
man agriculturist has calculated that the
droppings from one thousand sheep dur
ing a Ringle night would manure an acre
Rufliciently, lly that rule a fanner may
determine how long to keep any given
number of sheep on a particular piece of
land. Mr. Fay said he was accustomed
to fold his sheep upon land which he de
signed for corn and other crops ; nnd in
so doing he shut them upon half an acre
at a time, keeping them there by a wire
fence, which was easily moved from place
to place. In this way his land was well
manured without the lalnir of shoveling
and carting." These ideas are worth
reading bv the farmer. Wo believe any
farm will bear a certain number of sheep,
in proportion to the other stock, not only
without loss to tho amount of grazing
which it will yield to the cattle and horses,
but to the increaso of the same. Mr. Fay,
by his management, makes the iambs and
manure pay tor keeping the sheep, and
tho wool is clear profit.

The English Agricultural Gazette cal
culates that if manufacturers could only
distribute 10,000 reapers before another
harvest, it would lie equivalent to more
than letting loose nil England's standing
army on the gram fields of Great lsntain.
And it further remarks "Had we had
such means at our command this year we
should not now have had to complain of
one-half our crop being five days in the
rain. Supposing these machines to have
been a week nt work, 500,000 acres
would have yielded 2,000,000 quarters of
grain, worth more both m money and as

Hut even ir we Republicans were ttisposeii
to fold our arms In slumber, our adversaries
would not permit it. They are busy to-day in
lengthening their cords and strengthening
their stakes with a vigilance and activity
which reveals a consciousness on their part
that their dominion must be made sure rm tli
with or their seenter will have forever de
parted. To-day, myrmidoms of the Slave
Power threaten and harass Northern Mexico,
are encamoeil in the heart of t entral Amen

listraeted inhabitants of its petty Kepntilics
while it by turns leers and scowls at Cuba,
while its most ruthless bands are precipitated
on devoted Kansas, under the protection and

as we write, the telegraph informs us that
tw-en'y Free-Slate men, guilty of attempting
to defend their homes against the rapine and
violence of Hnford's nnd Titus's Mood-thirsty
bandits, have been convicted by I.ecnmptc'g
Court of manslaughter! and sentenced to five
vears' Imprisonment at hard labor ns felons
This is hut a fair specimen of what has long
passed for "justice" in Kansas a justice
which takes the criminals into pay and aids
them in hunting down, plundering ana "wl
ping out" the innocent, whom it consigns to
the State prison if they are ever goaded into
tlie mailness or resisting ineir oppressors
Such crimes nnd wrongs as unhappy Kansas
has for twelve months endured, even Hungary
or Poland has never known; nnd the Power
at w hose.ins'igation these villainies were and
are perpetrated sits enthroned in the White
House, nnd has just achieved another four
years' ascendancy in the Federal Govern

that Republicans may now pile their arms,
even for an hour?

Throughout the country there arc thousands
of persons who purchase or subscribe for the
leading magazines, at book stores, all of
whom, by joining this Association, will not
only receive their literature for tho sam
money as before, but will be, in addition,
equal and free participants in a rare art-work

Such an enterprise cannot fail to command
the approval and patronage of the public. It
has a basis as firm and pure as its objects are

it should not become national, in its claim's

by intelligent, reliable parties, the new Asso
