How to ohoapon tho products of tho farm, how to double tho crops, without added , labor, op poors at this tlmo to bo of llttlo interest to tho cultivator; for tho markets aro glutted with tvhoat, with corn, with ryo, with oats, with hoof, with pork, and tho lessor staples of tho farm, tho orchard, and tho garden. And tho rural population stand aghast at this condition of things, and havo littlo desire to Book roliof in how and improved modes of oulturo, whereby Choy may bo ablo to produco larger crops with leas of labor or of outlay of capital. Thoro appears to bo no incentive In that direction, and tho search for roliof must bo tarbod Into ■ some other channel. Prices havo Waxed and • waned; light and abundant harvests have followed each other.; but Just now thoro appears to ho somo giant wrong, some grinding oij overshadowing powor, that weighs clown tho commorco of tho country; or, may bo, wo havo failed to call to our aid somo latent force, that would havo compelled things to movo forward iu their regular channels. “IT 18 THE RAILROADS,” about tho crowd, 11 thot aro driving tho farmers to tho vorgo of ruin and anting out thoir sub stance." “Not so fast, my good friends," soy tho men who demand • • ■ • A REVENUE TARIFF. “ It is tho robbing tho consumers of iron, of salt, of lumber, and all tbo material that goes into our means of transportation, and tho indus tries, of tho profiteof thoirMabor, to build up tho tnonoy kings of tho country,—tho kings of pig iron, of salt, and other monopolies, that Con gress has raised up iu our midst to swallow up tho products of our toll." “My friends,” says an honest deacon, “thoso things may havo somo influence, but 1 soo in ins HAND OP PROVIDENCE tbo real cause. Tho war-prices bo stimulated rural labor that wo btvvo sown and plautod to our utmost, and tbo good Lord has blcssod us with abundant crops for tbo past three years, and given us most timely weather for tbo gathering of tho beautiful har vests. Wo have gorged tbo markets, bavo loaded all tbo railroad trains, and, like tbo olden Egypt, in tho years that preceded tbo years of famine, filled all tbo granaries of tbo country with tbo abundant harvest. Lot us not com plain of this, but morning and night send up thanks to Him who orders tbo seasons and tbo harvests, for those bounties, that have given tho starving millions cheap and abundant food, oven if it boo cut off somo of tbo luxuries of tho rich. Lot us, therefore, continue to pray for abundant harvests, that wo may bavo time for other duties orploasuros." “rr is the rings,” eay the politicians now out of ofllco; “for those All tbo offices and fat places, and manage and control tbo politics of tbo country, from tbo vll lago-cauous to tho nomination of county, Stato, nnd national candidates. Tbo hankers bavo rings, and tboir papor-crodit !s Tho last nnd best supply, That lends corruption Higher wings to fly,— except, perhaps, Credit Mobillor stock or Union Pacific llailroad bonds.” “ What shall wo do to bo saved from any and nil of tboßo evils that beset us ? To whom shall wo apply for relief ?” la tho Macedonian cry that comes up from tbo four points of tbo rural hor izon. THE STATE FARMERS’ ASSOCIATION eay, "Lot us moot at Springfield, wboro sit In council tbo law-makers of tbo land. Lot us bo represented tboro also, and give that august as sembly and tho Governor to understand that wo mean ousimas, and aro no longer to bo trifled with ; that, whllo wo bavo no disposition to in fringe upon tbo rights of others, wo demand that protection at tboir hands from tho intoler able wrongs now inflicted upon us by tbo rail roads which they have a constitutional right to givo us. Tho recent mooting of tho various rail road officials at Springfield moans mis chief to us. Now, farmers, give another day to yonr cause; bettor remain idle nil tbo year, than continue to toil that tbo rail roads may reap tho profits. Select your bestmoa for tho purpose from each county, and seo to it that money enough bo raised to pay tboir neces sary expenses. Appoint youx meetings when it will best suit your convcniuco, but in time for your delegates to reach tbo Capital on the 2d prox.” What Legislature can stand tho pressure of * SUCH A LOBRY ? What Governor would not quail before tbo menacing attitude of tho gathered delegates of Farmers’ Chibs and Patrons of Husbandry? Then lot tbo rural population go up in their might to tho Stato Capital, and, in thunclor tonos, demand of tho law-makers and the Exec utive tbo needed roliof. DDT WHY have wo scut men to tho Legislature who dare betray ub ; am! why put iu tho Gubernatorial Chair a man who required ho many days to select tho best tlirco men out of ninety candidates for Railroad Commissioners ; and thus compel us to go up to tho Capital,—tq call tho workers from tho farm just when tho orchard is swelling its buds into loaf and bloom ; when the pastures are redolent with tho blue, and purple, and gold of vernal floral; when tho for est is whispering, through all its sinuous bolts and borders, of a robing for sum mer; wbon tbo seed must bo sown, or there will bo no coming harvest: when the soft, warm Bouth wind sends its rippling zyphyrs over tho russot-ficlds, calling on plants and trees to greet tho new-born spring: and when tho birds call us from tho night’s calm repose to boo all Nature putting on tho livery of spring, that beckons ns out in the sunshine and tho warm air ? It must indeed bo a crisis that would thus call us from our homos, when those homos need our atten tion. and at that timo have so much to attract us to them. “BREAK XJT THE OLD JUKOfI,” filiout nil tho politicians ami middlemen out of place. “Put us in tboir places. Lot usnmn ngo tbo Ship of State, mul wo will bring all to n snfo liarbor, Glvo na tho order ing, and all thlngo ttbnll find tboir level. Tho farmers shall have war-prices for nil that they bavo to sell, and peace-prices for all thoy need to buy; and tho mechanic shall bavo high wages, while tbo consumer shall bavo cheap goods, ” “down WITH THE TARIFF I" say tho men of tho rovouuo tariff, “and wo will build up manufactories in ovory city, in ovory village, and in every hamlet j for wo will thou Imvo tho world boforo no In which to purchase tho raw products of the hold, tho forest, and tho mluo, nt cheap rates: and can add to thorn now values by our (drill and our labor, aided by cheap water-power, cheap coal, and cheap living for our operatives, and tho cheaper transportation for them.

Tho aid of tho old mas tors. when tho world depended largely on tho mothers to supply tho waste of ar mies, and on whom iu a groat moasnro depended tho supply of arms, shall have our host attention. Thus tho farmer's daughter will bo prepared for either a cottngo or a palace; tho wifo of a millionaire, or tho fanner of ton acres enough; to tnko hot place at tho kitohon range, or to range through Europe; to knit a stocking for hor husband, or to knit her brows at hor neighbor, Mrs. Smithkins. En dowed with all thoso. and moro, tho daughter shall go back to hor iron-clad homo to await au invitation to fill hor future station Iu life. “With all thoso now powers and gifts that shall bo taught tho sous and daughters of tho farmer, tho world must swing into trim, and movo smoothly forward to Its destiny.” My humblo poa is not wall enough odvisod to say wno is nianT. and it Is therefore tho duty of “Tho Farm and Garden" to stato tho facts as they aro, and await further developments; to soo whether tho world will stagnate on 20-cout corn, or movo forward at tho rate of 8 cents a mile, with all unjust freights thrown out of tho list. In tho meantime, this soothing cauldron must continue to boll,— perhaps co-oporato itself dry, perhaps simply send tho water off in steam, and leave tho woll-proparod contents for use. “ Tho salt-mon syndicate tbo crop of salt, and put. It on tho market as tho world de mands it, no moro, no loss; no competition, no reduction in prioo, for it is all posted and sola on account of thoso to whom it may concern. Lot us therefore bo advieod, and SYNDICATE TOE CROPS OF TUB FARM, and'placo them in tbo bands of aomo National Head-Centre at Washington,—some Farmers* Club, or Patrons of Husbandry; when wo might pool the corn, tbo wheat, and other small matters that wo bavo to dispose of. Wo can tbon put snob a prlco on our staples as will procludo any question In regard to freights. Hay wheat at $2, com sl. oats 60 conts, and all otbor products in proportion. Tboro would bo no cutting down in price, no foes to middlemen, for tho Hoad-Contro would bo simply an agent, working without sal ary and boarding himself. Lot tbo man who can indulge m tbo whoaton loaf do so, and the man who takes to corn-meal do so at a reduced cost, and those who can only indulge in oat-moal or boan-porridgo, bavo that food in plenty at lower rates. Thus all grades of society will be pro vided for at a uniform rate. Tboro could be clubs of wheat-bread, of brown-broad, of corn broad, and of poa-porridgo. Thus all men would realize and comprehend tbo motto on tbo Ameri can Eagle, that all mon aro on a level, —tbo level of tboir purses. Thus tbo farmer would never bavo a glut in tbo market, for tbo Hoad-Contro would always keep tbo supply equal to tbo de mand ; in abort, “Tbo wind shall bo tempered to tbo shorn lamb.” Then, again, this Hoad-Contro could fix the prioo of agricultural implements, of garden-seeds, and . tbo thousand things that tho farmers may need. No man would bo allowed to pay moro than 3 cents a mllo for riding on a rail, ana no one would dare to put him oil; for no man would bo elected Jus tice of tho Peace, or oven to tho Supremo Bench, unless ho pledged himself to glvo a verdict against tho monopoly, and hold himself subject to bo advised by tbo people, who aro tho source of all law. Tho great Qood-Contro at Washington, wboro all mon would bo Uko its illustrious namesake?, who would not toll a Ho, could, with a sweep of his pen, regulate all matters that warred against tbo Interests of tho fanners. That wo must bavo something like this to pre pare tbo way for THE MILLENIUM is certain, for all things will tbon como to a common level, and all mon—save a fow who prefer wheat broad, but, by reason of the tightness of tboir purse, aro compelled to eat mush and molasses or poa-porridgo, and are not pleased with tho condition of things,—all those who wish for tbo good of tbo country will take what is sot before them, and not bigglo in regard to mat ters of moro tasto. But wo must learn TO WORK AND TO WAIT, and especially to work; and, If any ono is in doubt which of tho plans proposed will boat load totboopon sunshine of prosperity, bo bad bet tor proceed to put in tho usual crop, and go about bis business, very much as though bo would bavo to run somo risk in re gard to the quantity that his well-tilled acres will yield, and to take bis risk of tho market prices; send his children to school; attond church; bo thankful for good health; pray for a bountiful harvest: keep out of dobt; and veto for good, practical, honest, business mon for office. Then will his days bo pleasant, his sloop bo free of nightmare, and tho robins shall wako him just as tho sun usuora in tho dawn. 'Bubal. UNWISE COUNSELS TO FARMERS. To the Editor oj The Chicago Tribune Bin : Permit mo to ontor my protest against tbo tone and spirit of S. M. Smith’s lottor to J. P. Day, published in your columns of March 18. Mr. Smith is Secretary of tho State Farmers’ Association, which position gives weight to his words. Do first assails tho Oovomor, saying, “Wo need look for no help from him. Ilis ap pointments fully show ho is not in sympathy with us.” Now, tho Governor is a politician, and was elected by n party. According to usage in those latter days, his first duty is to satisfy that party. Perhaps wo can introduce a bettor one. His first nominations for It allroad Com missioners wore not acceptable to us, in part, but 1 think ho has endeavored to satisfy us since, and has, I believe, given us good men. Mr. Smith then "goes for” tho Legislature, saying, in substance, they are not to bo trusted, unless they can bo kept thoroughly fright ened. This I chink extremely un just. Tho Senate rejected tho Governor’s first nominees for Pailroad Commissioners, in compliance with our wishes; they have unani mously passed Donahue’s bill, which I doubt if any of us could improve; and I have yet to soo tho first manifestation of unwillingness to do all wo may justly ask on tho part of either Houso. Again, many of tho members are farmers, hav ing common interests with us. It does not look well for us to condemn them in advance, either for stupidity or corruption. Nor do wo want hasty, ill-considered legislation which cannot stand tho scrutiny of courts. Lot them make hasto slowly, and beware of inconsiderate friends ns well as secret foes. Mr. Smith next comes down on the Supremo Court for its recent decis ion. Would ho like to trust to that old law, to have had our Court sustain it, and to go to tho Federal Court at Washington with it as a moans of redress for our grievances ?—for tho Railroad Company would have tukon tho case there had it boon sustained by our Judges. Col. Morgan, whom wo wanted reappointed a Railroad Commissioner, said, In his lottor, copied in your paper, that the decision was a sub stantial triumph for tho farmers, and tho Execu tive Committee of tho State Grango, at its recent mooting, “resolved" “that tho decision seems dictated by patriotism and wisdom, and, so far as wo understand its reasonings and suggestions, thoy are accepted with satisfaction and ap proval.” If those gentlemen are mistaken, ami most other people witli them, and tho Supremo Court was wrong, will not Mr. Smith point out their error ? Tho Legislature Booms to agree with the Supremo Court, for they hayo repealed tho old law (or tho Stato has, tho House not hav ing yet taken action), ami have framed tho now bill In accordance with tho principles of tho de cision. Tho truth is, whilo there is no more honest, single-hearted, hard-working, and unselfish friend of our enuso among us than Mr. Smith,— no ono whom wo should moro highly esteem,—his impatience of injustice loads him to rash and un\vlso utterances ; for references to Bostou-Uarhor tea-parties and.talk of revolution aro unworthy of his good sense, of tho solid Jiistico of our olalms, and of our abundant powor, if united, to onforoo thorn. Now that wo aro roally nearing, as I think, tho ond of our railroad fight, if Mr. Smith would “froo his mind" as To tho thieving, lying, hypocritical monopollflts who, by tho Protective Tariff, draw blood from ovory pore (nearly doubling tho cost of making and running railroads), ho could thou hardly oxcood lu denunciation tho hounds of “ righteous indignation," and might wall adopt tho mlo in an Irish fight: 11 Whenever yo soo a head, hit it," and wo could woll giro him tho benediction, “ Moro powor to yo, my lad I" March 23, 1878, Farmer. A PERILOUS SITUATION. The Steamship City of Oiliiaola Eoso* Her Rudder In n Storm, ami Drifts for Several Days at tho Mercy of the Winds and Waves* Wo aro permitted to publish tho following ex tract from a private latter, dated Liverpool, March 11, 1873. • • • • You havo learned from my dis patch homo that I wan a passenger on tho Oily of Brussels, which sailed from Liverpool on tho 20th of last month, and lost hor rudder in a heavy galo, whon four days out from harbor. Wo wore twelve days at sea after our disaster; at tho timo of which uono of us thought of seeing laud, oven under tho most fortuunto circum stances, within a month; and all tho time wo stood in groat danger of total shipwreck: Wo loft Queenstown on Friday, tho 22d, and tn&do ovor 600 miles by Sunday noon. Thon wo enooaniorod a hoary hand-wind, which increased steadily, blowing a galo all day Monday, so that our run for that day was only 200 miles. You cannot imagine, or I describe, tho wild tompoat of Monday night. Wavo aftor wavo came dash ing over us, carrying overboard tho forward bridge, and smashing our breakwater. Tho bridge was supported by six solid wrought-irou pillars, nearly iinohoa in diameter; andthoyworo twisted and broken as so many straws. Tho broakwator was a solid pioco of timber, 20 inohos by 80 inches, stretching at right angles across tho dock, in front of tho foremast,—its object being to break tho force of boos shipped ovor tho bows. This woo struck by a heavy wavo, and broken os though it woro no stronger than a pipo-stom. Towards morning, an awfal soa struck us, carrying away ruddor and rudder-post, leaving tho ship wholly unmanageable, and com pletely at tho mercy of tho winds and wavos. Tho rudder-post was wrought Iron, about 10 inches In diameter, and it scorns impossible that water could acton so small a surface with force enough, to break tho post. Ono would think that it would ho twisted from tho ship hoforo breaking. The upper part of tho ruddor and post remained intact, while all below (somo 21 feet), compris ing aovon-oights of its whole length, was swept away. Tho vessel now foil away from tho wind, bringing us into tho trough, to battle with a boam-soa, —tho most straining position a ship can assume. Sotting tbo mizzon topsail brought us up a littlo, but wo could not lay to nearer than eight points from tho wind. But lam bound to say that no ship could havo behaved hotter in that trying Eositlon than did tho Brussels. Though tho oavy wavos brought a groan from each plate, she rode ovor them all. fiho seemed a groat leviathan, assailed ou all sides, wounded, and suffering tho greatest agony, yet endowed with a courage and resolution that would onduro to tho end, firm and unshaken. Tho officers and orow behaved nobly. Tho firm, manly faco of Oapt. Brooks novor changed from Its confident, cheer ing expression, ana ho imbued his passengers with a hope ana confidence which perhaps ho did not fool himself. Wo lost onr holm on tbo morning of Fob. 25, and was sighted by tho City of Paris, Capt. Lecob, on tho morning of March 1. Yon may well imagine that tbo intervening days dragged along their slow course wearily enough. I used to onvy tbo passengers who woro in tbo second stogo of sea-sickness. You know, in tbo first stage, you fear that you will die, and, intbonoxt, that you will not. It was a glorious sight to see tbo Paris bearing down to our roscuo. At first wo thought sbo would pass us unnoticed, but tho boom of our cannon, and tbo distress-signals from every spar, called her attention to our con dition ; and our relief was inexpressible when wo saw her lot go her bead-sails, and turn slowly from her course. I did not appreciate bow high tbo sea was running until tbo Paris was rolling and pitching on tbo waves, a quarter of a mile distant. Sometimes tbs wholo ship, with screw out of water, would bo visible on tho crest of tbo huge waves: and again she would sink in tboir hollows, until topmasts alono woro visible. Sho lav by us over tbreo days before tbo sea calmed sufficiently to admit of communication. Then wo succeeded in attaching tbo two ships by tbo boavy chain anchor cables (having broken two hawsers, one of 11 inches and ono of 13 inches) ; ana, favored by tho calmest of weather, wo woro towed snfo to Queenstown, reaching that port on tbo evening of tbo 7th inst. It is a remarkable fact that tbo cablo, after towing us so many miles, performing its work so well, should have broken just as wo reached tbo en trance of tbo harbor, and had four largo tugs to afford their protection. Having bad this experience, I do not regret it. And yet nothing would induce mo to rc-oxpor ieuco tbo long, anxious days, and sleepless nights, that I passed while wo woro alono upon a stormy ocean, and powerless to direct our course. Wo bad on board somo forty cabin and 460 steerage passengers. Those woro ail trans ferred to tbo City of Now York, at Queenstown, and sailed again for America, within a fow boars of tboir reaching Queenstown. This prompt ness reflects groat credit on tho Inman Lino. With regard to this trip: wo woro more than fortunate in being picked up so soon by tho Pans. A storm might easily bavo driven us far out of tbo courso of steamers crossing tbo At lantic, and wo should tbon bavo drifted forwooks and maybo mouths.—possibly bavo gono down, leaving our fate, like that of tbo ill-starred City of Boston, forovor unknown. However, what is* writ is writ, and I am on solid laud, a thankful man E. E. F. A WORD WITH A BUSY-BODY. Dwioht. Livingston Co,, 111,, March 20, 1878. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune ; Sm: Newspaper reporters, in their proper sphere, ore an institution which cannot ho ais- Sensed with. Bat. when resolutions are intro ucod In a convention, which do not accord with tho views of tho newspaper thoy represent, and thoy attempt to dictate in regard to their dispo sition, thoy become a nuisance which should bo speedily abated. At tho mass-convention hold at I’ontlua, on Friday last, a report of which ap- Jioared in The Cuioaoo Tribune of Saturday, a nrgo number of delegates from Dwight and OdoU woro prevented from being present at the opening of tho Convention, Tho Chicago & Alton Railroad Company, at Odell, refused to carry delegates for 3 cents a mile, until thoy had first attempted to procuro a list of tho names of all those who refused to pay the illegal faro. This absurd plan would not work, and detained tho train more than nn hour, and tho delegates woro then permitted to ride to their destination for Ocontsamilo. Reaching tho Convention, wo foimd that tho Committee upon Resolutions had made a partial report, and, believing that tho Interests of tho farmers are such that thoy should fight not only onb monop oly, but all, wo submitted tho following resolu tion, which was road, and unanimously and en thusiastically adopted: JUaolved, That while tho sufferings among tho farm ers of Illinois and tho West from tho want of cheat) transportation aro palpable ami alarming, and tho freight upon corn to tlio sco-coast la greater than its price at market. and while wo aro anxiously looking to any and all of tho proposed methods of relief, wo bo* lioro that our interests and thoso of tho whole country require absolute froo trado In all tho materials which arc used in tho construction of railroads, engines, cars, and steamships, and that all laws prohibiting us from buying In the cheapest, and selling In tho dearest markets, should bo at onco repealed. While tho Secretary of the Convention was reading it, tho reporter of tho Inlcr-Qccan took it upon himself to suggest to tho Chairman, I. XI. Stilt, “ that this resolution waa entirely out of place, and cut no llguro in this fight, and it waa introducing nolltica ; that tho majority of tho fannora in Illinois woro in favor of Protec tion, and ho would suggest that tho resolution bo laid upon tho tablo or referred hack to tho Com mittee on lleaolutioua.” Thia lino of argument waa a “IHumb" which tho Chairman or tho Con vention did not boo fit to owallow.

Tho second floor and lower story only remained. No debris was on the floor that fell. Tho falling was caused by a springing forward of the piers on tho street wall, whereby the girders woro displaced and tho Joists woro unseated. MANUFACTURES.

The receipts wore the largest of the season thus far, reaching 17,800 head, against 14,061 lost week, and 14,822 week boforo lost, hut the supply at no time seemed oppressive, and, with the exception of yesterday and to-day, when a slightly easier fooling was noticeable, the market exhibited a decidedly firm tone. Telegrams from tho East havo boon uuiformally favorable, but, as a result of tho large number of hooves forwarded Eastward from hero during tho week just closed, shippers an ticipate a reaction there, and accordingly their movements during yesterday and to-day wore conducted with rather more caution. Continued improvement is noted in the quality of tho re ceipts, tho average of tho past few days being exceptionally good, oven for this season of tho year. Tho proportion of rough, thin stock was unusually small, and a record of tho week’s sales shows tho bulk of tho business to have boon transacted at prices ranging from $4.60 up ward to $6.00. Numerous sales wore reported at $0.10@0.60, while, in soveral instances, SG.6O@ 7.00 was realized. Stockers havo boon steadily activo, and ruled firm to tho close at $3.60@4.00 for common to medium lota of from 700 to 050 lbs average, and at $4.25@4.50 for good to primo droves, averaging from 000 to 1.080 lbs.

Tho sup ply, though larger than in former years at a cor responding period, has proved Inadequate to supply tho legitimate wants of shippers, and each day’s receipts wore absorbed at bettor prices than prevailed tuo day before, tho daily advanco averaging a strong Co per 100 lbs. Now York, Boston, Now Havon, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Buffalo, and Canada buyers wore regularly in attendance, and tho competition was, at times, spirited. It is now apparent that tho available supply of bogs Is much smaller than has gen erally been supposed, and, if the demand con tinues as urgent ns at present, prices, in all probability, will undergo a further advanco. To-day Ihb market was active and buoyant. The arrivals were liberal, but did not equal tbo demand, and prices crept up another 10a, or to $5.20@5.CG.
