|h ™‘ j —:— 1 Wax Cadmus • Myth? We have bwo aectistoiuttl to regard Cadmus aa a historical character, as much mi as any other personage mentioned iu history, bat doubt* an thrown over (ho existence of such a person by the savans || of the present day. Cadmus, we are told, rtaa not a man. but that the word i* de- ; rived from the Phoenician word Kadm 1 signifying: the Kant, from which direction the Alphabet waa iatrodneed into Greece; bat it has generally been supposed that Cadmus was a man and that be was the inventor of the Alphabet. Davenport's Dictionary of Biography," which lies before us. makes no mention of Mich a person, but many Malurions do mention him, sad we oak ourselves the question, whether it b passible that the world has been mistaken in this matter so long? Another question b suggested to our mind,'and it b this—ore not some men wise aborc what b written? We once hoard the existence of Gen. Francb Marion and Paul Jones, two well-known characters in American history, doubted by men assuming to be intelligent. May not the doubts respecting Cadmus arise from a similar muse ? Zell s Encyclopaedia speaks of Cadmus as follows: —‘-According to ancient Greek tradition, Cadmus was the leader of a col ony of Phoenicians, who settled at a very early date in Boot in, and founded the city Of Thebes, B. C. about 1450. The Greeks attributed to him the introduction into their country of the sixteen simple alpha betical characters; and the close analogy in form between the Greek and Phoeni cian alphabets tenders thb account ex tremely probable. Bb personal history b almost entirely fabulous. ’ In Harper's Magazine for March, in an article contributed by Rev. Wm. Hayes Ward, entitled ‘ Our Debt to Cadmus," occurs the following passage:—“Hence forth the East —or Cadmus, if yon please, for Cadmus b no historical character, only the Phtcnician word Katim , -East.'' per sonified —" * • • The Rev. Royal Rabbins, in hb “World Displayed, speaks of Cadmus: —“Cadmus was a Phoenician. He laid the foundation of Thebes. Thb fact b very much in vested with fable, which needs not to be detailed. If Thebes, according to some, sprang np at the sound of Ampbiou s lyre, i. e. by encouraging the workmen, still Cadmus built a citadel which he called Cadmet. and thus formed the commence ment of a city. Cadmus was the first to introduce the nso of letter* into Greece, though some maintain that the same al phabet waa in exittcncc among the native inhabitants. Thb alphabet consisted of only Id letters, to which 8 were afterwards added. The warship of several of the Egypt bn and Phoenician deities was also introduced by Cadmus. Hb era b reck oned to be 1519 years B. C.” Bribery—The New Jersey L-gbla turc, following the example of Congress, b investigating charges of bribery against its members, to vote for and against cer tain railroad bills. Legislators, both State and National, have shown themselves of such easy virtue, of late, as to he as mar ketable as any other commodity. Bribery ought to be made a felony, panbhable by heavy fine and imprisonment in the peni tentiary, of both giver and receiver. Any impudent, purse-proud railroad president, director, or other officer, who dares to ap proach a legislator for corrupt purposes, ought to be made to suffer the severest penalties. Any aspirant to the U. 8. Senate or Honse of Representalires. to any State Legislature, or to any office of profit or trust whatever, who shall, directly or indirectly, resort to bribery, should be rbited with condign punbhmtnt. Penal legislation of thb character, has become absolutely necessary, for bribery b now earned to the moat shameless and unblush ing extreme. The country must protect itself against ail such villainy, or swift de struction b sore to follow. Editorial Tot iwev.—The Fmkrick Vabat shivers a lance upon oar neighbor Scabrook, of the Smtu tef. for having “jus tified the late robbery of tbs United States Treasury of more than a million and a half of dollars by the late Radical Congress.’' The fnion thinks that -the good people of Carroll county had better never pat a man like thb in any of their publip offices, or they may “pay dear for their whistle.' Thb n a little hard upon our neighbor, at this particular juncture, whan, rumor has it, he is looking towards one of the fattest of our county offices. However, let the Knight of Frederick keep hb lance in poise, for be may expect to feci the Iran efaeon of the Kni .ht of Carroll, who cannot 6il to respond to thb challenge of hb ad versary. _ A Boll.—ln hb letter in reply to Sec retary Bontwell’s resignation. President Grant serves upon alt his Cabinet officers the following notice to quit: “Among joar new official associates I trust you will find the same warm friends snd co workers that you leave in the executive branch of the Government,'' The President trusts that Mr. Bontwcll will find the tamo warm friends in the Senate that he leaves in the Cabinet. That b wha! he says, but such is not hb meaning; he simply ini oded to say that be trusts Mr. Bontwcll will find as warm ! friends in the Senate * he leaves in the Cabinet. It used to bo raid—“give an Irishman twice to speak." Whether Irish or not, the President require* it, to be properly understood. The Liberal Republicans would not unite with the Democrats in the New | Hampshire election, hut setup a ticket of! their own The result was that in a rote ef 60,(100 in the S ate they cot', only 500. Last year in the Presidential election, the Democrats adopted tho Liberal Republican candidate and platform. Bwt the Liberal. Republican* evince no each liberality to- ; words the Democrats.

Mcketlip, and 11. Vau derford. Curator*. The question for discussion, *‘What isthc : ll Method of Preparing and Fertilizing j Ground for the Cnltivatiou of Cornwas then taken up by the Club. The President, F. U. Orendorff. stated that several years ago he prepared a lot of i seven acres which foul been in clover mixed with blue grass and had been limed the year ’ before. Ploughed it in the Fall and stirred lit in the Spring- Planted by 4 feet, with two and three grain* in every other hill; used a compost made of 4 hen manure j rich earth and added 6U s. plaster to about lb or ‘M . barrels of this compost. dropped a handful to two hills, worked it us long os possible, the object being that the grouud might be kept • mellow and the dew* concentrated around the roots of the corn. Ihe yield was about 12 { barrels per acre. Mr. B. F. Shrivcr s experience was that I frequent ploughing was beneficial even in the | severest drought. Dr. J. ttinebart advocated Fall ploughing . as the better plan, as the frost then kills all - the insects in the ground. Mr. C. Schweigart preferred the plough to , the cultivator, as it gave nourishment to the corn; was iu favor of working corn as often as possible before the harvest. Corn should be dj feet apart in the row and 2 or 8 stalks in the hill, which would give large ear*. Great care should be observed in thinning corn, that the weakest sulks be removed and those remaining not be disturbed : the stalk* should not be close together, but placed so as to give a free circulation of air, by which it produced bet er. The land between the rows shdbid be kept level, so aa to prevent wash ing. Mr. A. D. Schaeffer inquired whether suck ering com waa beneficial. Mr. F. U- Orendorff thought not : the more tou pulled the faster they came. He thought his laud waa too heavy to grow sweet corn profitably. Dr. J. Kinchart preferred using a fork in 1 working corn the first time. The question adopted for discussion at the | next meeting is, ** w hat is the best Method of Producing Potatoes f ? There was no meeting of the Club on Thurs day evening, owing to the inclemency of the weather, the Club will meet at the usual place on Thursday evening next, when the question to have been discussed on Thursday evening last will occupy the attention of the | members.

Euitoks Permit me the MM of | vour vabiablecolumnsfor ihe purpose of notic- t ing briefly a communication which appeare<l j in the Sentinel of the 18th instant, signed ! ••Carroll." and purporting to give information ! of a woif outrageous case, enacted at Pataps | co. Western Maryland Railroad, in regard to portal affairs. The outrageous case referred 1 to by•• Carroll" was, that over fifty male cit- ; izens of I‘alapsco and vicinity, enjoying their uten private, religious ami politietd opinions, j petitioned the Fostoffice Dejutrimeni aUut a , I year ago to grant them a posloffiee at Pataps j co. which fact and the result of which, “Sub- j ' scriber" has heretofore faithfully and truly j made public. Now if it be an outrage in a ! Jiej>**Uican Government that boasts of it* mag ! nanimitv. for any citizen or citizens to petition j their public servants, of whatever ptditical caste ! they may happen to be ; then the petitioners, j the'•‘.-age" aud former post master have been guilty of that outrage: for they did that and nothing more. “Carroll,” however, in his I i intended reply to “Subscriber." has gone into a long tedium about Carrollton Postoffice, | showing iu incipience, growih. oppressions and changes, all of which is not only irrelevant j to the true nature of the outrage as charged, i but also misrepresenting in its character. Ihe | accused did not, nor do they now. ask for any j interruption of the Carrollton Office, bat sim ply that they might obtain one for the accom modation of their isolated community with the assurance, also, that the Department should receive a revenue thereby. “Carroll" is mistaken iu the data and doings when hr says “ 1 hey lamded together to lesson the sal ary of Mr.'Chcw," Ac., “a* soon as the re trocession to Carrollton took place." The re- • troce—ion of the office took place in the early part of 188$. and they sustained the office as best they could under the circumstances, with out a innrmur. And not until they had bat ail hope of being recognized as citizens de siring any favor trom their government either iu consequence of having entertained their oitm political minds (as they and the old post roaster of that place always intend to do ; , or being by some outside manipu lation. did some of those same petitioners, living nearer to the “lioucksville" Office than any other, determine un the first of uan uary, 11*78, to change the destination of their papers, after which the accommodating mer chants then at Patapsco, arranged to have them furnished at their point of business once a week. The papers only were, therefore, at that time, and under (Lose circumstances, changed. And this is what constitutes the grand scheme about which “Carroll" whines so much, and into which he endeavors to i drag the illustrious aud innocent patriot of “Houck*ville," whose character for frankness I and freedom from .scheming, “Carroll" may Ido well to emulate. 1 don t wish to criticise “Carroll" too closely, but really some of his , remarks are quite amusing on account of their I inconsistency. For instance, he says that | Westminster is neither a first-class nor a dis i tributing postoffice. No one knows the class i of the office bettor than he doc* himself, 1 j presume, but it is certainly a distributing one. I Again, he says that so damaged was tin* • financial condition of Carrollton Office by the conduct of the Patapscuniaus, that the post | master thought seriously ul*out resigning, and ! then assurea us that the office nett* to the Gov ! ernment yearly, over S4O. “Carroll" also i makes a strange calculation when he compares j the business of a pootoffice with the number ; of men who choose to go to an election and j vote, and it would nut nave been surprising had be pul that number down to such only as j voted his own favored sentiments. He seems I to forget that men, women and children over a certain age, all require and should have jtostal facilities. Now, in this view of the j subject, let us see bow far wrong “Subscriber" wa* for he is a good calculator), when he ; put the number down at 4ou, as patrons to ! Patapsco Office. Suppose the number of such patrons in the Fourth District to be only 1600 {terson*. and suppose each office referred to ! by “Carroll" did an equal postal business, it would just be 4UU persons to each office, with ' out Patapsco doing all the the btuine.-s. Pa tapsco is a flourishing little village of recent 1 growth, and while her citizens should not give to her undue imjw*rtauce , they, and the com munity among whom >heis located, should*ee that it is to their interest to make her able by their patronage toviewith her*iter villages, that she may do a> least her share of business. In conclusion 1 would say with the prophetic language of “.Subscriber,” “I hope that an office will be established m early spring, and that the little town may again smile under the benign influence- of our new firm post office, and all complete, the ‘sage' not ex- I cepted." lours, respectfully, Dreamer.
