ODE TO WASHINGTON.
t is unto that power great,
Vhose will i destiny and fate
Whose every whject must succeed
Thouge cfties IjIhzc and nations bleed,
Ve meekly bow with humble heart,
And ewi-ii event view as a part
Of Unit endless, wondrous plan,
Oar i'uther, God, ordained for num.
Hut when we peer back on the past.
Full through the gloom that time bus cast,
The mui key shadows but disclose
A Held where man 'gainst man arose.
Oil wrath and vengeance had the sway,
And force and evil gaiued the day ;
And justice, freedom and the right
lias sunk in blood and hopeless night.
And many heroes in the cause
Of so orduiniug human laws
That they should rest upon the right,
Instead of only force or might ;
We see have suffered all the paius
Of dungeous, death, or gulling chains,
Because the truth they dared proclaim
The stolid taught, a sense of shame,
But why imposed is such a task!
None should dare, distrusting, ask.;
lint nobly, like our champion,
The peerless hero Washington
Should hare the arm unto that foe,
Aud let each traitor villain know
" lriiat still he lives, and in thecuusa
(Of 'equal justice, equal laws.
For suchlike brave example given,
.Man owes a greater debt to heaven,
Which does an obligation make
'(That none but vilest traitors break;
Itccause the rights for which he fought,
JCadh roan of reason on earth ought,
Aud every good man will defend,
JLnd at all hazards, to the end.
Each patriot now should take his stand,
It need be, with his sword in hand.
It is as victorious now to fight
For justice, freedom and fur right,
As when our fathers' blood was spilt,
.And freedom's noble temple built,
And flag of liberty unfurled
A hope snd beacon to the world.
Kv'n resolution God upholds
Vhcn'er their progresV plain unfolds
Those sacred fcuturosof his plan
The rights that nature gives toman,
As when our fathers bravely fought,
And on through bKod and freedom sought ;
And so 'tis now, each patriot son
.Defends the cause of Washington.
And sure as treason, nnw arrayed,
Does dare to draw the battle blade,
A revolution back to force,
The friends of freedom to eoerce;
Is vilely wrong not God nor man
Will justiry such fiendish clan:
But freedom's csus. it will succeed.
Though cities blaie and natious bleed.

A Party thut Keeps its Pledges
Tho telegraph informs us that tho President
has signed the bill prohibiting slavery in the
Territoties. Ho has doubtless, nlso, tro this,
signed the Puiilio Railroad bill. These two
measures nro the last of tho Series which thu
Republican party pledged itself nt Chicago to
carry into effect. This is probably the first in
stance in American history wherein a declaration
of party intentions was mado to be kept, inste id
of to serve the deceitful purposes of demagogues.
Tho Chicago platform pledged tho previa N'a
tional Administration to the following- proposi
tious ; 1st. The Federal Constitution, fights of
the States, must and bhall bo preserved. 21.
The National Government must no longer be
administered in tho interest of a sectional and
local establishment. 3J. Tho Territories must
bo kept free forever. 4th. Tho AfViean slave
trade must be met with more vigorous efforts
for its final nnd total suppression. 5th. Kansas
must be admitted as a State into the Union, tit h.
Tho industrial interests of tho country should be
encouraged by a judicious protective taritF. 7tl).
The public lands should be donated without cost
to actual settlers. 8th. The perfect equality of
naturalized citizens with native citizens must be
recognized and maintained. 0th. Congress
should make appropriation for such river ami
harbor improvements of national character as
are immediately nnd tir.ently needed to ac
commodate, secure and protect the commercial
interests, properly and lives of the people. lOlh.
A Railroad should be built to the Pjcilio Ocean,
and, us preliminary thereto, a daily Overland
Mail should be promptly established. The parly
that udobted this wise, comprehensive mid lia
tional platform has been in power only fifteen
months, yet every one cf these propositions have
been enacted into law. Y lieu 1 resident Lincoln
took his seat he found the Federal Constitution and
the Union of the States assailed by armed rebels,
and he has nearly completed tho work' of crush
ing out and saving thu integrity of tho Uepvbiic.

Arkansas Items. By tho recent arrival of
two men from Helena, Arkansas, a point on the
Mississippi ninety miles above tho mouth of the
Arkar.sas river, we learn that great suffering
must soon exist among the people of that part ol
the State, and that they will reqiro food from the
United states authorities, or else many must
starve. All tlio beef cattle had been driven oil
to the rebel army, nnd tho water had been so
high that it stood three feet deep on ninny of the
first floors of tho stores und dwelling in Helena.

rebel authorities at that place, included in which

How Slavrky Affects tiis Wiutk Max.
The following remarks nro from Rev. J. Bal telle,
a Virginian and ''conservative." They occur in
a calm, well considered ml Iress to th-i Constitu
tional Convention of Western Virginia, of
wh eh Battcll" is i leading member i
The injuries which slavery inflicts upon our
own people nro manifold and obvious. It practi
cully aims to enslave not merely another race,
but our own race. It inserts in iti bill of rights
some very high so'liiding phrases, securing the
freedom of speech, and then practically mid in
detail puts a lock on every man's mouth and a
seal on every man's Ii s who will not shout for
and swear by tho Divinity of tho system. It
amuses the popular fancy with a few glittering
generalities, in tlio fundamental law about the
liberty of tlio press, and forthwith usurps uu
thority, even iu times of peace, to send out its
edicts to every Postmaster, whether in tho vil
lago or at tho cross roads, clothing him with n
despotic nnd atisoluto censorship over ono of the
dearest rights of tho citizen. It degrades labor
by giving it the badge of servility, nnd it im
pedes enterprise by withholding its proper re
wards. Jt nlono has claimed exemption from the
rule of uniform taxation, and then demanded and
received the largest share of the proceeds of that
taxation. Is it any wonder, iu such a state of
facts, that Ihero lire this day, of thoso who
havo been driven from Virginia mainly by this
system, men enough with their descendants, and
means and energy, scattered through thu West,
of themselves to nuiko no mean Stato
It has been in a ftllow observer, mid 1 will
add as u fellow sufferer, with the members of the
Convention, that my judgment of tho system of
shivery among us his been formed. Wo have
seen it seeking to i nugurate, in many instances
all too successfully, a reign if terror, in times of
profound peace, of which Austria might be
ashamed. We havo seen it year by year driv
ing out from our gen nl climate, nnd fruitful soil,
and exhaustions natural resources some of thu
moil of tho very best energy, talent mid bkill
among our population. Wo have seen also,
iu times of peace, tho liberty of speech taken
away, tho freedom of thu press abolished, and
the willing millions of this system, iu hunting
d irtn their victims, spare from degradation und
insult neither the young nor the gray hairo I vet
eran of seventy Winters, whose every thought
was in free from olfoiiso against society as is that
of tho infant ot days. And last, but not least,
wo havo seen its own chosen und favored inter
preters standing iu the very sanctuaries of our
political Zioti throughout tho land, blaspheming
the holy principles of popular liberty to which
tho very daces where they stood had been con
secrated by dooming my child and every man's
child that must live by labor to A virtual and
lulpless slavery. And as tho natural outgrowth
of nil this, we havo seen this huge barbario raid
against popular rights nnd agaiu.st tho world a I ,st
hope. It has been the merit ot other utteinpted
revolutions that their motive ut least whs reach
ing upward and forward tiller libeity ; it is the
inl.imy of this th.it it is reaching backward und
dovv nward nfler despotism. It would put bark
the hand on thu world's dial a thousand years.
It would put out tho world slight in the darkness
of utter und dreary despair. Surely, to tho ex
tent that we have suffered from theso ills, our
very manhood calls upon u to guard, by all
reasonable preventatives, against their return.

Hay and ltoots Comparative Value.
A correspondent of the New England runner
remarks, that hay is tho chief article of food for
stock during the Winter season; und, generully
speaking, if u sufficiency of good hay is proper,
ly fed lo stock, they will thrive upon it, and
increase in weight und value. But it is not al
ways, nor even usually the ciisc,' that farmers
have u sufficiency of tho best quality of hay to
feed to their stock, with no exceptions iu the way
ot coarse fodder; damaged hay, straw, etc., nnd
in caso tho latter is fed, or when the usual yield
of hay has been ledueed, by reason of drouth of
other causes, root crops alford u valuable uuxil
iury, whether used iu connection with tho former
or us u substitute for the latter. Hence it ofien
becomes necessary to know the comparative val
ue of potatoes, uirrots und rula bagas, that
farmers may be uble to tuibslituto in part; these
root for hay.'
It is becoming more and moro the practice of
our best farmer to feed out, not only their car
rots, turnips, etc., but their potatoes, instead nf
selling them from tho farm, iu tho belief that the
good of their farm's demand it," nnd that their
purses in tho end will not bo the losers thereby
and tho more it 'a practiced, the more convinced
tiro they of the economy Uud profit of such u
course of feeding. Not only is tho profit derived
from tho roots, as stich, but tlio relative value
of the hay, us well us that of the roots, is increas
ed when fod together.
Potash A Manure!. No vines enn produce
fruit without potash. Dyewoods, and all color
giving plants, owe their vivid dyes to patash.
Without it wo cannot havo a mess of peas.
Where it exists iti a natural ktatu in the soil,
there we find liguminous plants growing wild,
and in such places only we find wild grapes.
All tho cereals require potash, phosphate of mag.
tiesiit, and silicea, which is dissolvable in a solu
tion of potash. It is this dissolved sand that
forms tho hard coat of stalks, und gives them the
strength to stand up against tho blasts of vi In J
aud ruin while ripening. It is this substance that
gives bamboos their strength, and beards of
grain and bludes of grass their cutting sharpness.
No cereal ever came to perfection in a soil do
void of potash, silicia, phosphate of lime, cur
bouie. acid u id nitrogen. if, 8. Journal.
