Daniel "WeLstet was once riding through a runtl district with one ol' KIM colleagues, and, seeing some i'avinora at work, made the following remark: There, sir, is a class of people not represented in Well, what of that? Why, just this. Had not this Maine Daniel been boosted up by fanners where he could be heard, he probably never would have been honored by foreign nations aa the great American statesman, or his orato- ry been listened to by his own people. Ihcn why, Oh, Daniel, didst thou for- sake them, and leave to be bit and bled by tho political lions that preyed upon the rights of the people ?_ IJut there seeuis to be lions now, ns well as in the days of Daniel, according to report. Poor Wbitfeiaore. of Caro- lina, sells a and bouses for the people of his district with the aioitcy, ami is ronied out of den in a harry; whilst R. R. Butler, of Tennessee, commits the offense, but applies proceeds ibr'sabsidizing newspapers, and to Tennessee election, gets off 'with a few growls. Then next comes the ,Oregon land job which pressed through the Senate, giving acres to a railroad not over 100 miles long; and the Senate in passing icf used to admit an atr.cnd- iiient giving protection against the specalator. ticn, Putuutn left his cattle Bitched to the plow, and hastened to assist his countrymen to fchrow off the yoke of the British inontnrch. And yet King George was not hialf as tyr? utiical Qbthc no-hearted monojwlistB who give free pusses aud splendid entertainments to the so-called of the peo- ple, and even trantspoi t whole Legisla- tures into cxcfcding high mountains, showing them the kingdoms of the world, with lavish promises to reward for fealty and support. What food for thought! Is it not enough to startle the American eagle from, his roost, or the pen to leap from its holder? says one. business have you, a fanner, Jo ventilate this subject Whv not get Judge Biglittle or Justice Biglitlle to engineer this thing for That's what the matter vrith us. We have let this same family of Biglitrlcs run the machine too long already. We complain that they have robbed us of our money, and now must we acknowl- edge that they have stolen our bniius? Tf we do not seek to elevate our calling, who can we will elevate it? If we do not manifest proper respect for ourselves, who caw we expect to do IIP reverence? If we put our own weight in the balance ag.iinst our own intcr- who shall wci expect to help us off? In these jostling times it behrfoves us to look well to our being; to think and act for ouri-eh es. but not alone of In ing, LU-e the horoc, from tljiy to day; but not alone of giving Health for prif, or souls for pay. oh, be niiiclunei no longer, Toiling just for tlnily food, Think 'twill made you fresher, stronger, you to the great and good. Thought einKg and lightens labor; Thought forbids the to ainl: Self-respect and love Tor neighbor, Mart the men Iliint. While others are looking after their interests, we should see to ours; and in order to profit, we must take a more comprehensive view of our situation. And instead of worshiping the Gods set up by others, and trying to gain a little respectability by holding on to their skirts, we must apply our labor, our money, and brains to our legitimate business.

At the State Sabbath School Con- vention, held in MankatoHwo weeks ago, there were 400 delegates in attend- ance, and the'proceedings are reported having been of a character.
