TAKE IT EAST.
Take it easy; life at longest
' But a lengthened shadow is ;
And the brave as well as strongest
Dare not call to-monW his,
Take it easy for to-day
All your plans of wisdom lay.
' Tk ic easy : done with fretting :
Meet your neighbor with a smile.
Frjjm the rising sun to setting,
Live the fkksknt all the while,
Take it easy ; every vow
Make it reference to qow.
Take it easy ; what is hidden,
Or is wrong, or seemeth so,
Leave it as a thing forbidden,
Out of which a curse may grow,
Take it easy ; never pry
Into what will cause a sigh.
Take it easy ; daily turning
To the monitor within ;
On its altar, always burning,
Keep an incense free from sin,
Take it easy ; never fear,
"While you keep a conscience clear.
Take it easy ; ever leaning q
To the side of truth and right,
Happiness from virtue gleaning.
Peace of mind and wisdom bright,
Take it easy ; for at best
Life is but a sorry jest.

About 600,000 pounds of cheese
were .made in McIIenry county, 111., in
18C7, by eight factories; and none of
-these were run over six months, and most
of them notver four. They used up 5,
t00,000 pounds of milk in the manufacture
of this cheese. Previous to 1SCC there
was not a factory in the country.

A correspondent says that sheep gen

A gentleman who has tried the plan
successfully for five years, communicates
the annexed method of preventing horses
from chafing under the collar. He saj3
fee gjU a piece of leather and has what he
terms a false collar made, which is simply
n piece of leather cut in such a shape as
to lie, singly, between the shoulders of the
. fliorse and the collar. This fends off all the
friction, as the collar slips and moves on
the leather, and not on the shoulders of
the horse. Chaffing is caused by friction,
icnce, you see, the thing is entirely plaus
ible. Some put pads or sheep-skins under
the collar ; these do as much hurt as good,
for they augment the heat A single piece

Catching rata is often difficult, as the
old rata pre proverbially cunning. Lay
ing around poison is not alone dangerous,
but objectionable for the reason that the
rats may die at inaccessible spots and con
taminate the atmosphere with the well
known detestable odor. A better plan has
been adopted by one of our correspon
dents, by which he takes advantage of the
cunning habits of the rats. He covers the
floor near the rat hole with a thin layer of
caustic potash ; when the rats walk on
this it makes their feet sore ; these they
lick with, their tongues; it makes their
mouths sore, and the result is that they
shun this locality not alone, but appear to
tell all the neighboring rats about it, and
eventually the house is entirely abandon
ed by them, notwithstanding the neigh
borhood may be teeming with rats.

A DOTTED BY THE NATIONAL UNION CONVENTION
Resolved, 1st. That we congratulate the
country on the assured success of the Re

securing equal, civil and political rights to
all, and we regard its the duty of the
government to sustain these Constitutions,
and prevent the people of such States
from being remitted to a state of anarchy
or military rule.
2d. The guarantee by Congress of
equal suffrage to all loyal men in the
South, was denjanded by every considera
tion of public safety, gratitude and justice;
and must be maintained ; while the ques
tion of suffrage in all loyal States proper
ly belongs to the people of those States.
3d. AVe denounce all forms of repudi
ation as a natural crime, and national hon
or requires the payment of the public in
debtedness in the utmost good faith to our
creditors at home and abroad, not only
according to the letter, but spirit of the
laws under which it was contracted.
4th. It is due to the labor of the nation
that taxation should be equalized and re
duced as rapidly as the national faith will
5th The national debt, contracted as it
had been for preservation of the Union
for all time to come, should be extended
over a lair period, and it is our duty to
reduce the rate of interest thereon when
ever it can honestly be done.
6th. That the best policy to diminish
our burden of debt is so to improve our
credit that capitalists will seek to lend
money at lower rales of interest than we
now pay and must continue to pay so long
as repudiation, partial or total, open or
covert, is threatened or suspected.
7th. The Government of the United
States should be administered with the
strictest economy. The corruptions which
have been so shamefully nursed and fos
tered by Andrew Johnson, call loudly for
8th. "We profoundly deplore the un
timely and tragic death of Abraham Lin
coln, and regret the succession of Andrew
Johnson to the Presidential chair, who has
acted treacherously to the people who
elected him and the cause he was pledged
to suppoit, who lias usurped high legisla
tive and judicial functions, has refused to
execute the laws, has used his high office
to induce other officers to violate the laws,
has employed his Executive power to ren
der insecure the lives, property, peace and
liberty of citizens, has abused the pardon
ing power, has denounced the National
Legislature as unconstitutional, has per
sistently and habitually resisted by every
means in his power, every attempt at the
reconstruction of the States lately in rebel
lion, has perverted public patronage into
an engine for wholesale corruption, has
justly been impeached for high crimes and
misdemeanors, and has been pronounced
guilty thereof by the votes of 25 Senators.
Dth. The doctrine of Great Britian and
other European powers that, because a
man is once a subject he is always so,
must lie resisted at every hazard by the
United States as a relic of feudal times not
authorized by the law of nations and at
war with our national honor and inde
pendence. Naturalized citizens are en
titled to be protected in all their rights of
citizenship as though Uiey were native
born. No citizen of the United States or
naturalized must be liable to arrest or im
prisoninent by any foreign power for acts
done or words spoken in tins country ana
if so arrested and imprisoned, it is the
duty of the Government to interfere in bis
10th. Of all who were faithful in the
trials of the late war. there were none
more faithful for special honor than brave
soldiers and seamen who endured hard
ships of camp and cruize and imperiled
their lives in the service of their country.
The bounties and pensions appropriated
by law for these brave defenders of the
Union, are obligations never to be forgot
ten. The widows and orphans of the gal
lant dead are wards of the people, a sacred
legacy bequeathed to the United States for
11th. Foreign immigration in the past
has added so much to the wealth and in
creased resources of this nation, the asylum
of all nations, that it should be fostered by
a liberal and just policy.
12th. This Convention declares its sym
pathy with all oppressed people who are
struggling for their rights.
The following additional resolutions
were offered and adopted :
Resolved, That the adjournment of this
Convention shall not work dissolution of
the same, but it shall remain as organized,
subject to be called together at any time
or place that the Republican Executive
Committee shall designate.
Resolved, "We highly commend in a
spirit of magnaniniity and forgiveness the
men who hare served the rebellion and
who are nov frankly and honestly co-operating
with us in restoring peace to the
country and in the reconstruction of
Southern States on th basis of impartial
justice and equal rights, asd. are received
back into the commuQion of loyal people,
and that we are in favor of thji removal of
