Governor Morton waa pruent and made an Able ape eos. In which he reviewed the political ave Tiona of the Day. We Lack room in our of lamps for the entire speech and most Content Oare Elvea with a Brief mammary we find in the Cincinnati commercial which give a very Clear idea of the go it Vernor 8 View the governor Dison sea the subject of recon traction and negro a forage ably of oddly and dispassionately. He believe it to be the Firat duty of All patriotic Citi Bena to support president Johnson whose policy he shows to be Bat a conto dance of that by which or. Lincoln hoped to reunite the country in peace and Harmony. He is of opinion that before the Radical pol Iii Ciana of Hia own state insist upon negro auffre for the recently emancipated slaves of the South they should contribute of their influence to secure political rights for the Twenty five or thirty thousand intelligent and Thrifty coloured men resident in Indiana in other words that Charity to the negro race should begin at Home in the Burnt District for instance. Governor Morton is not opposed to negro suffrage. On the contrary he states distinctly that he is in favor of it and of equal political privileges without distinction of race or color. But he Aims to show that the plan proposed by or. Sumner whom be Recognises As the Leader of the Quot Radical Quot party is fraught with serious difficulties principal among which is its inevitable tendency to create coloured state governments and ultimately to produce a coloured balance of Power in the country which would engender prejudice of race and might Lead to a War of the races. His solution of the difficult problem is to educate the negro before giving him political Power and to wait until by White emigration from the North and from Europe the negroes in the South Are in a permanent minority governor Morton is warmly in favor of an amendment to the Constitution making the number of qualified voters the basis of representation in Congress instead of the number of inhabitants As at present. He is mistaken we think in attributing to the editor of the Indianapolis journal the origin of thie measure or the first advocacy of it. The Cincinnati Gazette recently claimed the Honor of first calling Public attention to the Wisdom of such a change in the Constitution. But to say nothing of the fact that the subject is an old one and was length ily discussed in the constitutional convention of 1787, it will be difficult for a Ither of our co temporaries to establish air claim to a copyright in tia matter when it is stated that the proposition has been repeatedly urged by or. Sumner in the Senate since the commencement of the War and that in the last Congress this Dis Tingoi Abad gentleman offered it in the shape of an amendment to the Constitution. It was buried in the judiciary committee and waa never brought to a vote. Aged All Over with personal and political quarrel a. I think that Harmony can beat to preserved by the selection of a new Man whole record is unblemished with these personal atries which have so Long distracted and weakened the party in the District. Such new men can be found by scores in any part of the District. And for the support of such a Man i shall allow no one to distance me in Lealua Effort for Hia Success. But i confess that i Ahall take Little interest in a Mere personal squabble such As has of late Yeara the congressional canvass in the Quot Burnt i Hope i May now be understood and i feel sure that the article in question waa not penned by the senior editor of the times for he knows me too Well to suspect me of a desire to take advantage of Quot any unfair respectfully t.

That question impels me to a further explanation. The language quoted by Yon from my card Ian Quot i am willing co submit to the voice of the people whether that voice a expressed in convention of the whole Union party or of the Goldie a of the District or at primary election to be held in the various townships. By this language i simply mean that i am not a Quot stickler Quot for any particular plan of making nominations. Some think a Delegate convention the proper plan others prefer the popular vote Eya tem while Many Good men have suggested that the Goldie a of the District hold a convention end select a candidate for the Union party. The argument used in favor of Thia latter method a that such a co Rae would fully recon a Oila Tea roof listing claims of aspirants and Chat if a Soldier in to be the Choice al doors should do the choosing for they know who Are Omri Torihas soldiers and would select no other.

Near Wabash ind., sept. 30. Messes. Editors we left Albion after 2, p. M., on thursday the 28th inst., came through Michigan City and Lafayette and reached Wabash at p. M., in the rain. I could say much about soils crops climates and the advantages and disadvantages of locations hut a few words must suffice. In our Western states there is not so much difference As some imagine but there is now and then a desirable spot which has fallen to the lot of some fortunate individual. It is Industry and the proper application of labor that make a country. As a Rule poor land is inhabited by poor people and Rich land by a provident population. I find in my tour this season through four Western states that the school House and periodicals Are the Pride of the people and contribute largely to their Prosperity. They beget that activity and Enterprise by which the resources of the country Are so rapidly developed. We May say what we please about the almighty Dollar it is the Dollar intelligibly directed that is developing so rapidly the Western country and the human mind. Witness Chicago. Thirty years ago the place was but Little More than an old military fort and now As i see in the Chicago Tribune of a few Days ago it is a City of Over 170,000 inhabit arts and its buildings cover a place which was mainly a swamp. What has and is making the place a Mammoth City it has been done by her indomitable Energy and is being done and will continue to be done until she is second in the United states to but one City the Mammoth new York. She Baa now to Laid her foundations and extended her Arma that Ehe a grasping in every direction and Atill extending and will continue to extend until with one hand Ahe grappa the North and with the other the West to the Pacific. This May seem a fancy picture but let us Chicago has now the great North Western Railroad running from that City to Green Bay cutting All the railroads in the state of Wisconsin turning the Trade from Milwaukee and other Points on the Lake to her own port and then taking the Trade from Green Bay and even from Ake Superior by the Railroad from the upper part of Green Bay through the Mineral regions to Lake Superior. I was in the Cara last thursday with a Man going weat to St. Paul to make arrangements for the Railroad to much talked of from Superior City to St. Paul but tia latter operation a to cheat St. Paul out of her Trade and turn the connection to that the largest amount of the business will be diverted to Chicago leaving St. Paul in the name condition a the North Western Road Haa left Milwaukee. Chicago Haa the Fox River Railroad the Road from Kenosha on Lake Michigan connecting with the Galena Road this lat ter Road taking All the Trade through the Northern Railroad of Iowa and Southern Minnalou. Then she Haa the Dickson air line Road or saing the Mississippi at Clinton inning weat to the Missouri River and now finished two Hundred Miles to the daa Moines River. All of these roads Are Iota hands of a single company. Next Ehe has the Rock Island Railroad to Iowa City which w in a a handed farther into the state. Then aha Haa a Railroad to Burli Ogton Aad weal to Ottumwa to be extended into Nebraska through the South Era portion of Iowa. Than aha Baa Tea Railroad through Galesburg to Quinoy 111., Thenea through Hannibel to St. Joseph on the Miaso Ari. 8ha Alio has a Bia ooh of Tea i Luttia Central from Cairo drawing the a Malhar Trade. Beaida All Tea Trade these roads constantly Pont into bar Lap aha hat Tea Trada of a Corner of North we Starn Indiana and a portion of Sontz was Tara Michigan. Then her Mineral a Eon Roas Are not Aeo Ond to any City i the United states and Ahe obtains Iron of a Quality not to be surpassed by any in the world. The Globe does not produce an area of As Rich and Fertile Lande As is embraced in Thia one and besides one of the very Best lumber regions is depending on Chicago As a Center of Trade and Bua Ineas. Sheep Are already absorbing a considerable interest especially on the Des Moines River and in portion of Wisconsin but it can not be expected that Chicago or its immediate neighbourhood will engage in manufacturing As Long As there Are so Many ways that capital can be profitably employed. The Iron interest must gradually grow into a considerable business As Well As All the Trade depending on Wood and Iron for their Staples. The Railroad which have been built and which Are still necessary must absorb for a time All the capital of every description that can be raised. Before closing the series of articles which i have written in the past four Montha i must Call the attention of our people to a matter in which our county As Well As the entire Eastern portion of the state is interested. This article has been delayed for some time for the Lack of some Tofor mation which i have Only partially obtained. But i am in Possession of sufficient facts to show the importance of a Railroad from Connersville North to in Oak Vara la the it la dist let. Connect with certain railroads now being begun in Michigan. One commencing at grand Rapida and running South through Kalamazoo to the state line. Another commenced at Saginaw and partially finished to Lansing the capital of the state. This last Road is designed to run North through one of the Best Pine regions of the West and South through Calhoun county where the Road is now graded and to extend South to Amboy near the South line of the state. Thus it will be seen that theae roads have their origin in or near the great Timber Region and at the rapids with a City of some Sise much water Power and a Large Field of plaster of mris. Saginaw has another inexhaustible to Ted of plaster is a Good lumber Market and is located in a Fine Region for the Lake fisheries. These two roads could be United in Noble county Indiana and a Road run thence South through Huntington and Blackford counties to Connersville or it could take what is called the Cale Smith Road through Muncie and Wabash thence to Noble county. The length of the Road through our state would be 160 Miles Over a comparatively level country where a Good Road could be made which would Cross All the roads in Eastern this Road completed would connect us with the finest Pine lumber Region of the North West and will some Day be made. It would add largely to the interests of Eastern Indiana thus abruptly i must close As my private business will claim my attention for some time to come. Yours Phi up Mason.

A Western paper describe a Brandy Man fit need from water Melous and pronoun toes in exo Ellen. It Imperata Paopao would Eibink Bat it waa Iii next think to a tract ing. Ran Baama from great improvements in sewing machines. Butter making. Thera a no earthly or unearthly reason Why in All the Midland and Western re Giona where Good pasturage and water abound there should not be produced just As Good Buttar a waa Ever manufactured in Orange or any other county of the Empire state. There a no mystery about butter making that ought to confine the production of a Superior Quality to limits so narrow As an individual state. Instead of the Greasy Streaky Strong rancid abomination by a great stretch of Courtesy called Buttar with which the Marketa and tables of Many places Are supplied it is quite As Essy for All Butler makers to give us a sweat uniform coloured clean cutting delicious article by simply abating their slovenly careless and barbarian practices. We Are eating daily As Fine delicious Golden butter made from the milk of a Little Quot native Quot at the rate of ten pounds per week fed on Clover grown the bosom of Jersey Sand As Ever was sent to Market from Goshen or anywhere else. Among the requisites for the production of Good Buttar Are first Good cows then Good feed clean tidy milking a Cool clean Sweet Dairy shallow earthen or Glass pans that the Cream May Rise quickly before the milk begins to turn sour or bit tar vigorous churning and of working the Buttar washing thoroughly in plenty of pure soft cold water washing out and working out every drop of Buttermilk then Fine clean Salt and just enough of it and above All scrupulous cleanliness in everything. No butter however Good May be the prime material of its manufacture will keep Long or is Ever fit to eat if foul with foreign filth no matter whether visible or invisible. There would be an immense a Liing off in the consumption of the material if our townspeople could see but a tithe of the abominations i Corpora Tad with some people s butter. Within these six months a Railroad Accident made us the unwilling guest at a farm House where from forty to fifty pounds of prize butter was made weekly for the City Market. The old shanty of a Kitchen was the Dairy and these Are a few of the things we saw in that Dairy at one churning churn washed out with dish water and Greasy dish cloth that had done duty on dishes for thirteen in the family.

We stopped our bread in pork Gravy while we tarried at that farm Cosmo. The first american newspaper. There waa not a newspaper printed in the English colonies throughout the continent of North America until the 24th of april 1704, when the Boston news letter was issued on a half Sheet with Small Pica Type. It was published by John Campbell a Scotchman Book seller and postmaster. Tea contents of the first number were the Queen s speech in the English Empire shuttle machine patented february 14, Iseo.

Parliament a few article under the Boston head one advert Zemeru extracts from London papers and four paragraphs of Marine Newa. Advertisements were inserted Quot at a reasonable rate from two Pence to five in 1721 James Franklin established a newspaper in Boston. The paper waa severely critical withal somewhat hostile 10 the clergy. Franklin became unpopular was censored and imprisoned for scandalous James Franklin was Quot strictly forbidden to print the new England courant without a supervision Quot amp a. He evaded this order of supervision by substituting his brother s name for his own. The courant lived three years. The american weekly Mercury of Philadelphia issued in 1722, was the third newspaper printed in the colonies. It was made up of quaint advertisements and Short paragraphs of antique Newa. The Pennsylvania Gazette edited by or. Franklin and published in 1729, was the next step towards journalism. In its prospectus Franklin announces his intention to make a Good readable journal and in Bis ideas it is easy to see that he was far in Advance of his contemporaries. Hia paper consisted of four Small pages and the subscription was ten shillings a year. In 1735 Thomas Fleet established the Boston evening Post. Fleet was born in England and Learned his Trade there. He once advertised a negro woman for Sale As follows Quot to be sold by the Printer of this paper the very Best negro woman in this town. She Haa had the Small pox and measles is As Hearty As a horse As brisk As a Bird and will work like a Fleet waa a humorous fellow and made Money out of his paper. The Pennsylvania journal and weekly advertiser was started about 1760. At the time of the stamp act in 1765, the paper came out in mourning with the motto Quot tha times Are dreadful doleful dismal dolorous and there was also a death e head in one Corner of the Page and under it these words Quot of the fatal a journal called tha new York Maiette flourished a Little while in 1771. It waa Reinar Kable in no particular. The first daily spar in the United states waa tha Pennay Wania packet afterwards called the daily advertiser started in 1794. Theta were tha first tude attempts at american Joa realism and As such Are worthy of mention. Upon the a event of the daily paper the ideas of collating and digesting the news grew More and More comprehensive and from 1800 up to the present time the american newspaper has grown steadily. Until it the press its the whole Springfield Union. Effect of stripping a country of its Tress. The Eummer heats Are beginning to dry up the Springs and Brooks which were lately so full and noisy and the attention of observing people is again turned to the fact of the diminution year by year of the Quantity of water in our streams at certain Sessons in consequence of stripping the country of its. Trees and converting to hts forests into pasture and tilled Fields. Almost everywhere our rivulets and Rivers show by certain indication in their Chani Neis that they once flowed towards the sea with a larger current than now. If we go on As we now do we shall at length Eek Many of our ancient water Cour Isaa As nearly obliterated As Addison found thai i in Italy. This deluding a country of its tree has made the Rivers of Spain for the most part Mere channels for the Winter the Guadalquivir which some poet Calls i Quot mighty River Quot enters the sea at Malaga without water enough to cover the Loose Black stones that pave its bed. The holy land now often misses the Quot latter rain Quot or receives it but sparingly and the Brook Kedron is a Long dry Ravine passing off to the eastward from Jerusalem to descend Between perpendicular Walls beside tha monastery o mar Saba to the Valley of that to Jordan and the dead sea. Or. Marah in Bis very instructive Book entitled Quot Man and nature Quot has collected together a vast number of instances showing How in the old world the destruction of the forests has been followed by a general aridity of of the country which they formerly overshadowed. Whether there Are any examples of frequent Rains restored to a country by planting Groves and Orchards we cannot say but we remember when travelling at the West thirty five years since to have met a gentleman from Kentucky who spoke of an instance within his knowledge in which a perennial Stream bad made its appearance where at the Early settlement of the Region there was none. Kentucky when its first colonists planted themselves within its limits was a Region in which extensive Prairies Burnt Over every year by the indians predominated. The causes which operate to make the Rains More frequent and the Springs More regularly full in a Well wooded country Are probably mgt re than one. Under the Trees of a Forest a covering of fallen leaves is spread Over the ground by which the Rains Are absorbed and gradually Given out to the Springs and rivulets. The Trees also take up Large quantities of this moisture in the ground and give it out to the air in the form of vapor which afterwards condenses into Clouds and Falls in showers. All the snows likewise that fall in forests Ara More slowly melted and sink More gradually and certainly into the Earth than when they fall on open Fields. On the other hand the Rains that fall in an a wooded Region run off rapidly by the water courses and that portion of them which should be reserved for a dry season is lost. In some Parte of the country with a View of supplying the deficiency occasioned by the gradual diminution of water in the streams they Are beginning to resort to tha old method of. Collecting the Raina into reservoirs. In a part of Massachusetts contiguous to this state the county of Berkshire the owners of the paper Mills on what is called the Windsor Branch of the Housatonic have already begun the construction of a Basin on that Stream at a spot in Windsor just above a series of cascades sometimes called Windsor fall and sometimes the wac Conah Falls. Here the Mouth of a Small Valley through which the Stream descends is to be closed by a Wall of massive masonry resting upon a stratum of the original Rock. No Mound of Earth would answer the purpose nor Wall of Etone resting upon Earth since if that were by any possibility to give Way before the water pressing against it in a time of Capiotis rain a flood would be let Loose which would carry destruction to the Village below. By this Reservoir a Hundred acres or More will be covered to a great depth and As it is the Centre of an extensive water shed it will be filled in Rainy weather in a very Short time. This example will probably be followed in other Parta of the country by those who desire to secure a Supply of water for their Mills in such a season As we had last summer when the want of water was vary seriously Felt a new York paper. How to arrest the potato bet. We have been informed by Jesse Meek of this Vicinity that he Haa succeeded in totally arresting tha rot in Irish potatoes by digging the crop As soon As the rot appears leaving tha potatoes hey in the Aan Ona Day and than burying them in tha ground covering with Earth to tha depth of about three inches. Or. Meek a atm that a treated potatoes on this plan commencing when the rot first appeared in july last and that tho a treated thua Ara now found to a perfectly sound and frae from the trouble. He Saye the plan adopted by him has been to place tha a Utora in Small piles so As to avoid their heating.
