Transcript 1861. Be sure to attend annual fairs and not Only attend of Catt bring with us for exhibition of Stock farm produce farm machinery and Domestic manufacture. Let ladies bring their butter and cheese their bed it Wilfe fancy works and Jawors for without their Aid and pres ence our society cannot nourish and our fairs will fail to be attractive. We should make such experiments in agriculture As reason dictates would be profitable keep statistics and report the game to our society that All May reap the Benefit for it is Only by Experiment that we acquire knowledge. Whatever we know to it Ever so tical was at some time the result of Experiment. Children should be educated to work their physical As Well As their mental Powers should be fully Detel oped give them a Small piece of to cultivate and the sole profit of the same encourage them in keeping it Well tilled and have them bring their productions to our fair thus educating them into habits of Industry so that when they gift old enough to attend our seminaries and Coll they will study to make themselves useful to make themselves men and women not drones in they will not study As too Many do now a Days solely for the purpose of enabling themselves to live without work. The dignity of labour should be fully appreciated the most that i have said has had Especial reference to the Farmer and those of other occupations who Are interested in this society will not fool that i Dis Par. Parago callings when we remember that most tradesmen lawyers and doctors of our county Are Farmers. Here even the taunt of the sneer ing infidel that the divine is a Moth in society and preaches for profit looses its apparent plausibility for they All la Bour through the week for their temporal welfare and on the Sabbath for our spiritual Good. I have endeavoured As much As possible to make my remarks of a practical a they arc addressed to a practical people already possessing within our county two printing presses that keep us posted in Tho news of the Day our Tele graph wire gives a the latest news by Lightining our Seminary University and common schools All the product of these hard times giving to the Young ample opportunities to obtain a Good education without which our Onward course must be retraced. Our county is yet Are to be opened watch Powors improved roads Laid and worked towns organized Bridges Mills factories and schoolhouses our people have minds to plan and Energy to execute. Let Forward be our motto in the future As in the past. There Are Many other indications of Thrift in our county these Are Only a few of the Many proofs that our course is on Ward that county Agri cultural society will in a few years com s pare favourably with the older societies of this staid or even of any state in this Union. Thia Unior. For which our fathers fought spilled their bests heart blood to secure for the maintenance of which our country has sacrificed one of Ita noblest sons and for which Corea of ouf fats and sons Are now fighting to up hold sustain. We Are Herd for the laudable Pur Posa of improving the agricultural interests of our country for the Mutual pleasure and Benefit of All let us at the same time throw our influence on the Side of right let us if necessary take our Pla Ces with Many of our neighbors who have voluntary shouldered their Musket March to the Battle Field there to do service join d defence of our once Happy country now in gulped in the miseries of civil War. Believing that god who rules the u in verse will favor our exertions give Vic tory to our armies make us again a peaceful and Happy nation and ultimately cause Good to come from this our great calamity. I thank you for your kind attention wishing you All a year of Prosperity a Happy reunion at our next annual fair. The effect on my. Correspondent of the St. Louis Republican writing from Washington thus describes the effect of care upon or Lin Coln. You must see the president before you can have any adequate Conception of How heavy the complication of cares that have thickened around him have exhausted oven his immense physical Powers. See him and then you will have a vivid con caption of a tired giant. See him and you will have some idea How Atlas looked just after he had lifted the world upon his shoulders. One never thinks that the immense mental labor and haunting care that has accumulated since his inauguration. If you saw him then you should see him now and if you Ever thought it a pleasant thing to be presi Dent you will immediately abandon the extravagant idea. The Chicago Jour Nal on thursday last sent Muggins out to got the fashions. He was gone just ten minutes and reported himself As Fol lows there Are no three women in the City who dross alike you May find them in couples but never in threes. Each lady seems Bent upon following that particular Stylo of dress which is least suit to her complexion and the Best calculated to Render her hideous. Would i you believe it he continued in a excited manner i have just met two highly respectable ladies with Sallow blonde complexions they had upon their Heads dark purple bonnets outside and inside of which were As Many dandelions and pop pies As would grow in a ten acre Saloio complexions rendered Beautiful by dark purple hats stuck full of red and yellow Flowers and Muggins actually Crosse dem spies in oter correspond pendent of the Cincinnati Gazette writ ing from Carnifax ferry Virginia since the Battle Between Rosencrans and Floyd gives this information. Allusion has repeatedly been made to the valuable information concerning the enemy s strength plans and move ments that the papers in Floyd s Camp disclosed. The fact that he left in such haste As to desert Hia private baggage and Large quantities of his private papers is the Best evidence could be asked of the vivid nature of the scare that was upon him. Papers found in Camp demonstrate that Floyd knew the strength of Gen Rosccrans army to within a Hun dred men. Floyd knew More than our numbers the diary of an officer loft in big trunk As Well As numerous letters written in the Camp but not yet posted All contained accurate statements of our Force our position our named to within five hours Tho time we might be expected within their entrench ments. More than All this Floyd s spies had tracked us from our first movements and clays before we vere in the neighbor Hood he had sent to Wise and Back to Lewisburg. I read for myself the let Ter of the adjutant general making the they should have arrived a Day or two before the fight but for some unaccountable origin of tub term among our industrious and frugal fore fathers it was a Maxim that a Young woman should never be married until she had spun herself a set of body bed or table Linen.
