What Stocks of Horses are mostly
Needed and Profitable to Malse.
Wo think there is no more profit
able branch oi business cn the farm
than raising choice breeds of horses.
We should first conHider what stocks
ot hordes the niaiket calls fpr, or the
kind that is mostly needed and unc
ial to the community. Now, the
query is what breeds ol horses are the
most marketable and profitable to
raise? ll cos's no more to 'raise a
first-class horso than it does a common
ono. agreeable to my experience and
observation. I riud there are three
classes ot horses that are really useful
and profitable to a community ; and
ot these three classes thare are two
classes which are more profitable to
raUc, and these aro the di alt horse
and the -hot so for all work, and the
third is the trotting horse, and this
stock really brings tlio highest price
ot any horses that aro taken to mar
ket; but tor all this there is more risk
in breeding for a trotting horso than
lor draft horses, from the lact, where
they understand breeding they ouly
calculate on ono in titty; that is, it
they raise fiftv head and Buececd in
gelling one that will make good time
on the tu it, they aro doing an average
business. ' Some would centend the
same chances aie to .bo taken in breed
ing . lor dralt horses. Experience
teaches us contiaiy, from the fact, we
hardly ever Jail to get a good work
horse, if not euitable for heavy diatt,
such as are needed f jr heavy teaming
aud draying purposes, wo have a
horse that is suitable for the farming
community; aim ono that always
brings a good price. Ine seconu
query would uaturally arise, which is
the best class to raise ol these three
different kinds of stock, draft, trot
ting, and horso lor all work? The
Clydesdale and Percheron Hock aro
undoubtedly the best draft stock we
have on this coast; and are both good
stocks of horses ; though there seems
to be quite a variance of opinio )
among many stock men in this valley,
as to which is really the best d; all
stock of theso two. The oldesc we
have, of Oregon raising, of the Clydes
dale stock, aro four year old this
spring ; and as far as I have seen, and
from what I glean from those who
have been raising this stock, and oth
ers not interested, in connection with
the many 6ales made East, at enor
mous figures, I cannot help coining to
the conclusion that there is no better
farmer's horse than the Clydesdale';
or ono more suitable lor heavy draft.
An Euglisli writer in a recent article
on Scotch and English farming, says
of the Clydesdale horses : "Although
Scotch. fanners generally have some
thing to .learn tioin their JLugliah
brethren in the mana ;einoiit of cattle
and 'sheep, end require to improve
considerably, in the selection and style
ot their, bucks and harness horses,
they stand almost : unrivalled in the
breeding and management ot their
cart .. horses." There . is no . belter
farmer's horso than the Clydesdale.
He has the power in the right place ;
he can move olf smartly with two
tons belli ud him ; he walks tour miles
an hour; trots, it need be, seven or
eisrhl: ls'aclive and hardy, his feet are
sound aud good, and Mr. Piclford
and others who use many horses in
lariro tow us, assures me that no horses
stand the work on the stones like the
Clydesdale, and none bear up so well
against the rough usage and buffeting
to which these willing van horses are
so often subjected. The heaviest and
most valuable Clydesdale are bred
within about 28 miles of Glasgow;
their style and usefulness have ol lato
years been improved by breeding
them with finer and less hair about
their legs. It is the leg of the Clydes
dale that enables tlio farmer to over
take his work with so few horses.
With nearly double the area of ari.ble
land the agricultural relations show
that in .Scotland there are 3.9, in Eng
land 4.2, hordes lor 100 acres of me
dium land under a four or five course
rotation. The horses are invariably
worked in pairs, plow an acre a day
and are used in singlo and double
carts. Wagons are unknown iu Scot
land. I should judge the , half breed
Clydesdale's that are being raised in
this valley will weigh from 1,400 to
LeO'J fus when they arrive at maturi
ty. The four-year-olds, this epring,
will average from 1,200 to 1,500 lbs.,
this is what I call heavy made horses,
and another good feature in this stock
of bores, they aro invariably kind
and domestic; never fail to poll when
first bitched up to a wagon or to a
load, and a poor horse' ean hardly be
found among them, which goes to
show that there has been a great deal
ot care and torethought in breeding
heretofore, in bringing about such
noble characteristics; and of such
powerful size and strength an these
van horses possess. K. It. 1;.

1 It seems as though there ' was com
ing to American politics a period of
utter and complete demoralization.
The condition of our public affairs is
becoming truly nlarmiug is already
alarming, and demands the considera
tion and action of tlio honest men ot
tho nation to Bave the country from
humiliation and shamo. From the
highest to the lowest in official sla
tiou, honest official conduct seems to
ho tho exception rather than the rule.
So widespread is this feeling that we
find ourselves congratulating tho pub
lic that the President himself has not
been detected in any mal-conduct.
The suspicion of crime reaches tho
Presidential mansion, the proof at
taches to tho Cabinet; lis presence
permeates the political attuosuhere
of tho Capitol and extends to the very
smallest ot official positions and im
plicates tho integrity of tho great
mass of office-holders throughout the
land. . Not only in tho General Gov
ernment do we find tho presence ot
corruption and abuse of political po
sition, but in nearly all the Slate and
municipal administrations not ouly
in the Kepublicau, but in the Demo
cratic party ; not only tho result aud
abuse of long-contiutied political
power, but it manifests itselt in the
very first acts ol a minority, party
that comes suddenly and uneNpeot-
illy to place; not only in othcml lite
do we find crimes prevalent, but itj
pervades private business oircles; and
from Lnnks downward through all
places of trust, and confidence, we
meet with continual and multiplied
proofs 'ot .dishonesty. .The last and
most startling 'disclosure of crime
now attaches to Secretary 13ulknap,
one ot our cabinet officers, accom
pfnied with proofs thatseom to carry
the full evidence of complete convic
tion. Another Cabinet officer loaves
tho position ol tho Attorney-Generalship
under circumstances that tend to
how that) iu bis office be was not an
honest man. Wc refer to Attorney
General Williams. If Secretary De
lano has not mado a practice of sell
ing his positiou, and has uot been
guilty ot repeated crimiual offenses,
he is a much injured man, for tho im
pression ol his guilt leaves upon his
name an ineffaceable slam.
Secretary liorie stands eharged bo-
fore tho country with such extrava
gant expenditures aud such seemingly
unnecessary outlays in bis depart
ment as to raise the fair presumption
that, if he is not stealing himself, he
is blindly oblivious to an army of
thieves around him.
Our minister to England, the high
est position iu tho diplomatic service,
is implicated in a scheme of swindling
conspiracy that affects tho personal
honor aud makes him the central
figure of a ' Cl ime that is world-wide
iu its notoriety. This Minister Schenck
now comes homo in the vain effort to
save his, personal honor upon no
hii'lier evidence than that of. Senator
Stewart- and Trenor.W. Park,' con
federates in his crime. In every de
partment of our government .there is
an organized. ring of publio 'plunder
ers, who are prepared, and whose oc
cupation it i is, to steal in. revenue,
and!), contracts and supplies. : lliese
rings are so intermixed each with 4he
o'.lier that to attack the one compulp
all tho o'-hers to band together, in
self-defense. Tho city of New York
presents a history ot robbery and
crime upon tho part of Democratic
leaders that estops .that party-rom
charging that this demoralization is
the result oi Uepublican supremacy.
Hie fact is politics has become a
dishonest industry, to steal from fie
people, to rob tho treasury, ti plun
der the tax payer, is only a crime
when detected. Washington has be
come a eocial hell, in which vice, ex
travagance, profligacy and prostitu
tion flaunts itselt. The waiting rooms
ot the Senate Chamber are assigna
tion rooms for the painted harlotry
of tho nation. One of theso low-
necked demireps has, by virtue of po
litical status, endeavored to lead so
ciety at the nation'' capital. Lust
and social depravity airs itself in lan
daulels and flaunts its piratical flag in
tlio face ofdece.it women and honest
men. Tho departments are partial
aids in support ot the kept mistresses
ot officials. We hear of social enter
tainments where the wives of Cabinet
Ministers, Supremo Court J'idgesand
Senators, upon salaries of from five to
ten thousand dollars, undertake to
vie in dress, jewels and equipage with
harlots and contractors' wives.
While all this stealing. and extrav
agance goes on, the people stagger
under a mountain load .of debt, and
there is no seening relief from it. .'If
we drown one hungry horde of bloody
vampires, another takes its plaee.
Just now we are on the eve of prepa
ration for a Presidential election. It
is the constitutional opportunity lor a
change of officials and reform, but the
cumbersome party machinery seems
to make reform impossible. We ot
California will send delegates to a
National Convention dictated for one
jpirty hy Federal officials aud for tbe
j other party by a clique of foreign and
' chivalry party leaders, each and every
one of whem aro intent upon advanc
ing their personal intorests and secur
ing or continuing for themsolvcs tho
opportunity of publio plunder. Party
issues aro mado for us at Washing
ton, and the people aro Old ; that
thero is danger from Southern aggres
sions, rendering it necessary for
Northern men to band together iu
sell defense) that tho finances ot tho
nation are disarranged; that banks
aro injuring tho ourrency and tho
credit of the Government, and that
tho financial is the important question
to consider. Tariff, revenue and oth
er issues aro provided for tho pcoplo
to discuss, while by secret intrigue
political plots are devised and con
summated to hold the purse, the
power and tho patron.igo of tho gov
ernment. There ought, iu this coming cam
paign, to bo made another and a
prominent issue indeed, two. Theso
two embrace all the others; they are
of higher importance than party or
nuance or local questions; revenue,
protection, Slate sovereignity all sink
troin sight when they are mentioned ;
they aro named each by a single word,
"Patriotism and honesty." There
should be inaugurated a great national
reform under a banner upon winch
aro emblazoned these words. A Na
tional Convention should bo called
whose resolves should bo confined to
the declaration that "tho policy bf
this Independent People's parly sha'.l
be patriotism and integrity,'" lie-
solved, "that our candidates for the
office of President und V ice-President
shall bo loyal and honest men." All
the long find wordy resolves of both
political " parties are for buncombe ;
they amouut to nothing; they are uot
even a chart or guida to party con
duct. It would bo a happy day for our
republic if it could bo rolled back for
halt a1 century to the economy and
simplicity ot its early times. It would
be a blessed thing it we could purge
Washington oi its debauchery and
vice it wo could restoio to Cabinets,
courts and Iccislativ;e ha'ls something
oi tho honorablo sentiments that dis
linguised our earlier statesmen, some
thing of the personal integrity that
characterized tho gentlemen ol the
Why Halkuap Fell.
The case of General Iiulknap, says
the Courier-Journal, has a special and
particular interest for the pcoplo of
Central Kentucky. His first wife and
his last went henco, and both 'were
famous belles. If the Secretary's of
ficial mal-practico does not auto-date
his marriage two years ago ho is to
be deeply commiserated. ' Much can
be sa d lor a weak man who ( has to
support the honors of a groat place
and tho extravaganccs of an ambitious
woman. The victim of this unhappy
combination was in no senso equal to
its dcmands.i 1 lie dnties ot a chief

honorable service to care for. Steal

day. It wis going on all orouud

amplo set in the most, shameful ways
by his chief and creator. Hotter men
than himself were constantly misus
ing trusts; why should not he ? Al
most in sight ot the War Department
might be seen tho palaces of men
grown rich in the Government ser
vice, and yet walking among their
fellows unscathed and unscorned.
Precedents in plenty were furnished
by the common usage ; and there was
tho temptress not merely to stimulate
his passions and to instigate his vices,
but actually to participate in his
crimes. The man is to be pitied as
much as blamed. I he 1 resident is
responsible for his fate. His wife is
merely an executioner chosen by a
Providence which seems to link wo
man with all the great tragedies as
well as all the great blessings oflife,

less than the moral law, that pride
