The aWcot writera on the tournee of political economy recognise the principle of free trade aa the true theory which ought to govern the exchange of com mod itiea In the commerce of the world. That it ha* aot been adopted by this govern ment is owing to the aversion of the American people to direct taxation. The same may he said of the people of other countries, sa all the maratimc nations practice the system of collecting imposts, because it is an indirect mode of meeting the public expenditures, but coats the peo ple more than a system of direct taxation, because it requires an army of office-hold ers who have to be maintained by it. The operations of a tariff hare been so much mystified by writers on the benefits of “ protection,” which is a sad misnomer, that they are imperfectly understood by men who are not directly engaged in com mercial pursuits; but stripped of all mys ticism they may be simplified and plainly ill oatrated thus: A. owna a valuable horse, and B. owns a carriage of about equal value, which they wish to exchange; but C. represents the government, to whom they are required to pay fire dollars for the privilege of making the exchange. Free trade would enable them to make the exehaage without paying anything for the privilege. The opinion that free trade, or any approximation to it, is impractica ble at the present time, on account of our public debt, is erroneous. England sup ports an army which coats more than twice that of outs; a navy which costa nearly twice and a half that of oars; a national debt neatly double the amount of ours and exceeding it in the annual charges it entails; civil expenditures which exceed ours in the proportion of four to throe; and yet England raises her whole revenue om the principles of Free Trade. The dutiee she levies are chiefly confined to articles of luxury, and are paid mostly by her wealthier classes. Nor docs she now levy duties upon one-twentieth part of the articles formerly included in her tariff. And yet, her system worke well, and has Mood the teat of a quarter of a century. If England's revenues have prospered un der a comparatively free trade tariff, why would aot similar results under a similar system enure tq, us? We have tariffed ourselves out of a navy, out of a com mercial marine, out of commerce. We have destroyed one branch of industry, that of ship-building, in which our skilled mechanics excelled, and driven them out of the country tv seek employment. Would it not be the part of wisdom, now, to change our policy, sad try some other system, especially one that has proved itself beneficial by the test of experience. The Vienna Scandal. The Baltimore American, a leading Administration journal, which has accord ed a lesions and unfaltering support to the present dominant party, makes the following frank acknowledgement of the reeking corruption which has disgraced that patty, and through it, the whole country. Let honest Republicans, in view of the many evidences of the cor ruption which pervades that party, an norer to their own consciences, how far they themselves will remain guiltless, if they continue to sustain by their suffrage the existing state of things. Ponder this extract from the American, your own lead ing organ in this State ; The fact that oar Government has had to discredit and suspend the Vienna Commis sioners, Including General Van Uuren,will be sharply felt aa a rankling misfortune and dis grace. Whatever may be the character of the irregularities of the Commissioner*, sad it is to be presumed that they must be of a nave description; in view of the very decided ac tion of the Slate Department, it will be im powible in the eyes of Europeans, to separate their individual nets from their position as representatives of the Nation, and the Amer lean name will be humiliated in the eyes of the people of all Europe assembled at V tenna. It must he confessed that the scandal ocenrs at a most inopportune time, ns well ss under circumstances that will add greatly to the dis gust aud annoyance it mast inflict. In one of the chief capitals of Europe, thronged with • the delegate. from every civilised nation of the world, thrown into broad and conspicuous publicity by the universal attention that is attracted to the Exposition, we stand shamed by an exposure of semi-official corruption and cupidity. Following the Congressional inves tigation, the Credit Mobilier scandal, the proven corruption by which seats in the Uni ted States Senate have been bought and sold, the salary grab, and the dishonest speculative dealings that have given ns a had name, this thing comes to add point and sting to the whole. We may take some consolation from the promptitude with which the State Depart meat has acted and from the hope that inves ligation will clear the majority of the Commis sioners from complicity with anything wrong. But still the whole affair is a sad one and will leave a sore and uncomfortable feeling behind it. The New York Journals am disposed to relieve General Van Buron, the Chief Com missioner, of any blame except that of care- Issaasm and want of good judgment in select ing and supervising the Assistant Cornmis Stoners, hot even these fanlts, in a matter on which the standing of the country so grcstl] depended, are inexcusable. —Baltimore Amer Mog* or It —The New York Tribmv another Republican journal, says; “ Onr Government, legislation, and all de pert meats of public affairs are involved in t chaos of corruption Legislation is sold, jus tics is sold, the administration of government is sold.

F, Duane, Esq., of Philadelphia, is one of the greatest living humorists. He is a gen tleman of high social position, the son of the former Secretary of the Treasury, and held, himself, until a few years past, a po- i sition in the Treasury Department at 1 Washington, from which he was relieved on account of his political proclivities. He is now, we believe, in one of the Philadel phia Banks, from which he occasionally emerges, at the coll of charity or to serre some recreative or benevolent purpose, to deliver one of his side-splitting lectures. His laughable “ Ninety Minutes in Kueer J Kompany, by B. F. Duane. X. T. K , which is Ex-Treasury Clerk,” sa he an- nounces himself, is really good for a fit of | the bluet, or any other malady curable by < hearty laughter. His urbane and gentle- , manly department, bis versatile genius, and the ease and rapidity with which he can assume such a variety of humorous and grotesque characters, avouch him to . be a gentleman of extensive culture, and < an amateur actor of such strict fidelity aa \ completely ‘‘holds the mirror up to ua , tore.” Had he been a professional, he 1 ’ woulcf have ranked with the highest com- ' , medians of this or any other country, and i , it ia because he is not a professional actor, J , that we appreciate him all the more. We 1 I have had the pleasure of hearing him 1 . twice, and go where he will, his auditors l are bound to become perfect personifica tions of “ laughter holding both his sides.” We would like to hear him in Westmin r ster, in behalf of some benevolent purpose, f or on the occasion of some cfanrch anni s Ternary or festival, if we were sure that t oar eitixens would honor him with such an audience as his refined and attic wit and hnmor merit. ’ The annual reunion and exclusion of ’ the Maryland Editorial Association will , take place on the 12th of June.

Corporation Merino. —Pursuant to pre vious bolic a large number of citijmas, irre spective of party, aaewtbled at the Court House ou Saturday evening last, for ike our pose of taking into consideration the affairs of Ike Corporation, noil naming suitable eau didates for Corporation officers to be support ed at the ensuing election. On motion of Geo. W. Matthews, Hanson T. Webb was unanimously elected Chairman, and Win. B, Thomas, Secretary of the meet ing. The organization having *bqpn effected several spirited addresses were made. Goo. W. Matthews offered the following resolution, which was adopted: Hetoloed, That for the harmony and well being of the interests of the Corporate affairs of the City of Westminster, politics should be ignored in the select!tto, of officers as Mayor and City Council, and only such men put forth as candidates as will look to the welfare of the whole people, regardless of party politics. A motion was then adopted that the meet ing proceed to nominate candidates for Mayor and Common Council, whereupon the follow ing names were suggested: For Mayor—Edward Lynch, B. W. Ben nett, Wm. P. Maulsby, J. B. Boyle, J. W. Perkins. For Councilmen —Wm. Hcese, John E. Smith, H. L. Norris, Geo. W. Matthews, W. H. Vanderford. Levi Evans, Joshua Tingling, Denton Oehr, H. Haines, Wm. B. Thomas, Elias Tingling, H. E. Morelock, Isaac C. Bade. CoL Wm. A. McKellip and several others were also named but declined. Col. MeKel lip made a spirited address, stating that he declined to servo because he did not believe that any persons, however well disposed, could accomplish the wishes of the people of the town under the present charter; but that if the gentlemen put in nomination, would pledge themselves, if elected, to meet the next Legislature of Maryland and have the present Corporate charter changed and re modeled so as to give vitality and strength to its construction, avoiding all technicalities, so that any enforcement of its laws cannot be d flayed or hindered, he was with them. Ou motion of Col. Wm. P. Maulsby. the Chair was directed to appoint a committee of five persons to select a ticket from the general list of nominees or others. The chair ap pointed Wm. A. Cunningham, E. O. Grimes, John E. Smith, H. Hatues and Thomas B. Gist said Committee. On motion the committee were allowed until Thursday evening, May Ist, to make their report, to which time the meeting then adjourned. HANSON T. WEBB, President. Wm. B. Thomas. Secretary. adjourned Merino. Thursday Evening, May let.— On motion Joseph M. Parke, Esq., was called to the Chair, and the Secretary read the proceedings of the last meeting. In the proceedings of former meeting there is an error of omission, viz The gentlemen selected, if elected, are to serve the Corpora tion without compensation for one year, and also that Col. Wm. P. Maulsby, if invited by the Board, volunteered his services as counsel to the Board free for the same length of time. Owing to the refusal of Judge Smith to serve ou the committee. A. D. Schaeffer, Esq. was appointed in his place. The report of the committee was next made, and they selected the following gentlemen as candidates: FOR MAYOR. E. K. GERNAND. for city council, JOSHI’A TINGLING, EDWARD LTNCH. UENRT VANDERFORD, DR. J. W. HEHING, ELIAS TINGLING. On motion it was resolved that these gen tlemen be recommended to the people as the Citizen’s Ticket, and to be supported by them at the election on Monday, May 6th. On motion it was resolved that John L. Reifsnider, H. Haines, and Thos. B. Gist, be appointed a committee for presenting the claims of the above ticket to the suffrage of the people, and making all other necessary arrangements. On motion the meeting adjourned nne die. JOSEPH M. PARKE. Pres’t Wm. B. Thomas, Secretary. Scicidb. —Mary E„ daughter of Solomon Zepp, Esq., residing about six miles from this city, on the Deer Park road, committed suicide by hanging herself with a strap on Monday.' We give the following particulars : —The deceased arose as usual and assisted in the accustomed household duties, and was engaged at the breakfast table for sometime, after which she left the dining room. Her absence caused no alarm on the part of the family, as they had no idea of her contempla ted destruction. About half an hour after she left the room one of her brothers went to the garret for some purpose and discovered her suspended by a strap. He at once alarmed the family, and every effort was made to re suscitate her, but, though the body was still warm, life was extinct. Miss Zepp was in her 26th year, and was highly esteemed by all who knew her. Her family have the sympathy of the community io their deep affliction. It is said that she was subject at times to great mental depression. She left a note in her room which explains the cause of her sad end, which must have been written a short time previous to her death. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon, in the M. P. Church, of this city, and was attended by a large num ber of persons. The body was interred in the Westminster Cemetery. The following is a copy of the letter alluded to above : “Farewell, dear Parents and kind Brothers, for 1 feel this morning that my time has come and that 1 can’t survive this earth another day. It is so hard to part with you all, but such must be a fact. l*ast night whs to me u night of terror. 1 have been thus afflicted for over three years, with these spells, but they have grown worse upon me. so that I can't stand it. If you will read our Dr’s. Book, under the head of Insanity, you will find my case exactly described to you—called Mel ancholy Insanity—for which you will find there is no other remedy but this. At times 1 have felt all right and would determine to try and do better ; but it has all been of no ose. I have been in this way ever since 1 was convict ed of sin and did not yield to that Spirit which strove so hard with me, and which at last 1 grieved away. Mother, may God bless every one of you, and may He comfort you all in this sad hour of bereavement. I hope that my case may be a warning to everybody.” Hood's Mills Items.— Hood9 Mills, April 29th. —Locals are as scarce in this section as money, and that article is almost “among the things that were.” The truth is, our people are so remarkably morel that such a thing as a wife-murder or whipping, or a fight, or any of the little diversions, so very popular in oth er sections, is unknown here. To be sure our good neighbors of Svkesville had a little ex citement on Friday last, caused by the partial burning of their fine school house, and, but for the exertions of the citizens, the county would now be S6OO poorer than it was a week ago. This is the second time this house has escaped total destruction, and from the same cause, viz: the want of some protection to , the roof through which the pipe passes. There is not even a piece of tin to protect it from fire, and we think those in authority, whose i duty it is to attend to such matters, should . remember the old adage of a “Stitch in time,” 4c. Fruit. —After careful inquiry we are sorry to inform you of the total failure of the peach ’ crop in this section. We were yesterday in formed bya gentleman, pretty well posted in f such-matters, that he had not seen a poach I blossom this year, and from all appearances . the apple crop will also be short. The lon of these two luscious fruits will be severely felt, particularly by the little ones. Agriculture. —Our farmers are busily en . deavoriug to overcome the impediments of the _ season. Owing to the backward spring; little more than half the nsual oats crop will be J sown, consequently the area of corn will be . much greater. Wheat is backward, but looks well, and should the season prove propitious a good crop is expected. Our gardens nevei ; were so far behind. Land Sale. —Mr. H. 8. Hunter, near this ’ place, sold his farm, containing about 238$ acres, for $6,000, or a fraction over $26 per acre. All things taken into consideration, this is considered by knowing ones a capital sale, and evinces the fact that property, in tbispart of the county, is yet worth owning. Weather.— All kinds, and indescribable. A severe accident took place at the jail on Wednesday. A man named Thos. Harring ton, who had been confined for some misde meanor, amused himself by teasing a man named Fisker, who is demented. Harring ton was advised against doing so, and Fisher becoming enraged^ struck st Harrington with a stick, wounding him in the left eye. Dr. Fringer, wko attended the wounded msn, fears that he will loose his sight. • Sabbath School Anniversary.—The Sab bath School Anniversary of the Methodist Protestant Church will take place in the church to-morrow evening, at 7$ o’clock. Addresses will be delivered by the Pastor, ' and R. B. Norment, Em. imaging by the School. Do not forget the temperance meeting and the address of Rev. Pennell Coombe, at the M. P. Church, this city, on Monday evening next. I 1 ■ ■ "V Music.—Moric doubtless is of heav ! only origin, for we are informed, that when j the foundations of the earth were hud, and ! order aud harmony from chaoa sprung, “tho j morning stars sang*OMthor. and alPthe soas 1 of God shouted for joyi 1 ’ A. high authority tells ns “it was designed to celebrate the I praise of God, and to give to the devotion of ; cherubim and scraphnn its most lofty expres | sion.” It fills the heart of man with mystic | transports, and elevates the xml. purifying it ! from the grossness of earth. Music has been } cultivated in every age of the world, from the | time of Jubal until now. Among the Jews it entered into all their religions ceremonies, and was under regal direction long after the time of David, and until the captivity. It still forms a part of the religious ceremonies of nearly every denomination of Christians. How important it is, then, that the science should be properly understood, that the praises of Goa in public devotion should ascend in bar monioos numbers, as incense to his throne. How thrilling to the soul is the blending of human voices in sacred melody. How soften ing to the rude nature of man, inspiring him wuh devotional feelings and preparing his heart to render devout homage as ho sits 4 ‘beneath the droppings of the sanctuary.*’ It is receiving much attention, at the present time, in all our churches, and its high impor tance as a part of religious worship, seems to be more fully appreciated. With the view of stimulating efforts to attain a higher excel lencc among all our choristers, these thoughts are hastily thrown together. It will interest our town readers, at least, to know who are i the “sweet singers” of Westminster. We ac cordingly give the names of the members of i the several choirs, as they have been given to * us by persons connected with them. 1 St. Paul's, Unformed. —Organist. Miss Alice ) Shriver; alto.

The Corner-Stone Laying. — A correspon dent sends us the following, in regard to the laying of the Corner-Stone of the new Church, at Baer's Tannery, near this city, on Saturday last: The morning train from Baltimore switched off the Ladies' car at Baer’s Tannery, con taining Rev. Thomas Guard, of Mt. Vernon Churcn, Rev. Dr. Wilson, Arthur P. Baer and wife, and several other gentlemen, nearly all relatives of Mr. Baer, who owns the tan nery and is building the Church. The Mt. Vernon Choir and others were detained on account of the unfavorable weather. The ceremonies attending the laying of the Comer Stone commenced at 1.80 P. M. Mr. Guard being assisted by Mr. Richardson of West minster. Quite a number of people from the neighborhood were present, ana some few from Westminster. A hymn was sung, a prayer offered by Mr. Guard, and after a short exercise, consisting of reading and re sponses by Messrs. Guard and Richardson, the former gentleman made an eloquent ad dress.. Mr. Guard stated, I think, that this was the first Corner-Stone he had laid in this countiy, and said that in Ireland it was al ways done by a lady, with a silver trowel, and he requested Mrs. Price, from Baltimore, to take bis place and deposit the box containing the Bibkg papers, etc., into the place prepared for it, which she did. A prayer was then of fered after which Mr. Richardson stated that he felt sure they would all like to contribute toward building a church in their midst, etc., and that a collection would be taken up. which was done, ( realizing something over forty dollars, which was increased to fifty dollars by Mr. Baer and others after they hail retired to the house. Mr. Baer and his party left on the afternoon train for the city. I think most of the money for this church has been collected by Mr. Arthur Baer in Bal timore. Double Pipe Creek Items.— Gold dollars and peach blossoms are scarce in these parts. Of the former a few may be found, but of the latter none, but few peach trees of bearing are living: a new set of trees must be reared be fore this vicinity will afford a crop. If we have oo peach blossoms in this vicinity, we have young and blooming brides, one not ftilly blown out of the bud. lacking nearly two months of fourteen years of age. 1 believe such marriages are common among the Orien tals. yet I hope that no other community in America will have a similar case. The weather for the lost fortnight Ims been very winter-like. Grass is looking very bad, not only short but pale and sickly. Wheat stands well, and grows slowly. Farmers are putting in all the time between rains in plow ing their corn ground ; a few who succeeded in plowing their ground last fall are prepar ing it for planting. Mr. Gratia Eyler, one mile south of here, planted last Monday, the 28th, The cold rain of Tuesday was no ben efit to it. No tidings of the lost child vet. Mr. An ( family and friends, as well an the sur rounding citizens, especially those living along the line of Big and Double Pipe Creeks, are , on the constant look-out, in the fond, but 1 t hope, of seeing its body floating on the surface of the water, on its wav to the Potomac. . _ Mr. C.

It * been thought preferable to meet on Sat d urday afternoon, instead of Thursday evening, u and to meet but once a month, during the summer, and weekly during the winter.

Home Manufactures. —We dropped in at Yingling & Bro s, a few days since, and were shown u large roll of beautiful List Carpet, fresh from the loom of the weaver, Mr. Pidi Miller, of Carrollton, about three miles dis tant from this city. Wo do not know that we ever saw a superior article of the kind. We understand the Messrs. Yingling take all he makes. We should be pleased to see these manufactures multiplied on every hand. There is no good reason why manufactures should be chiefly confined to the cities. On the contrary, cheaper rents, cheaper living, and many other advantages, invite these en terprises to seek the country as far preferable to the city. The Messrs. Mallalieu, English woolen manufacturers, who have been estab lished fur a number or years in the upper part of Queen Anne’s county, Md., near the town of Millington, Kent county, have grown rich in the manufacture of woollen goods. Their beautiful cassimcrs have a high reputation in the market, and are much sought after, wherever they are known. Indeed, the mer chants, throughout the peninsula, can scarcely keep up their stock of these goods, because their standard quality and excellence insure them a ready sale. Would that we had a number of similar establishments in Carroll county. pRORERTT Sales.—John E. Smith and C. B. Roberts, trustees of John Ueckurd, sold, on Mondav last, the real estate of said Reck ard, near Defiance, containing 112 j acres for SIB6O cash. Jas. A. C. Bond, Esq., trustee, sold, on Saturday last, at public sale, the Hotel and six acre's of laud, in the village of Mexico, to Wm. Myerly, of Baltimore county, for the sum of $1,860. On Tuesday last, Charles T. Besfsnider, as trustee, sold a house and lot in Silver Run, to Absalom Kooutz, for $560. On Saturday, the same gentleman sold a lot containing 9 acres, situated near Taylors villa, to David Lmrlo. Price not transpired. J. J. Baumgartner, as trustee, sola last week, at private sale, a farm containing 37 acres and 1 rood, situated near David Kiler for SI6OO. James (). Patterson, as administrator, W. A. of Georgeanna C. Steever, deceased, has sold at private sale a tract of land containing 63 acres, more or less, situated in Freedom District, to Jacob M. Zimmerman and L. W. Schultz, for SI6OO cash. Open At r Concerts.—ll has been suggested, that, with the return of pleasant weather, our musicians who are associated in the several bands of Westminster, inaugurate a series of open-air concerts for the gratification of our citizens in the pleasant evenings which are approaching. In return for this kindness, the people of this city will cheerfully contrib ute tor the purchase of new instruments, new music, or any other aid the several bands may need. There are two Cornel Bands and one String Band in Westminster, and between the three they might afford our citizens a musical treat two or throe nights in each week. It would be specially agreeable on balmy moon light evenings, give our town new life and an imation, and impart enjoyment to all, These concerts are given in the neighboring towns, and are very popular, esjieciaily with the la dies, and ihe juvenile population. Celebration.—The 641 h anniversary of Odd Fellowship, in the I’nited States,' was celebrated in Manchester, on Saturday last. There were three Lodges present, viz :—Dan iel and Jacob, of Manchester; Salem. No. 60, of Westminster; Hereford, No. 80, of Bal timore county, and a delegation from Henry Clay Lodge, of Reisterstown. There were about 160 members present in full regalia, with a brass baud, and after marching through the several streets of the town, they halted at the Lutheran Church, where an address appropriate to the occasion was made by Rev. Daniel Hauer, I). D. It is known to every Odd Fellow that the order was introduced in to this country by Past Grand Wildey, and there is a monument erected to his memory on Broadway, Baltimore. Centenary M. K. Church.—Sunday, May 4th. Morning 10J o’clock, third of the ee-. ries upon “Ihe Lord’s Prayer.*’ Subject, “Thy Kingdom Come.” Followed by the Administration of the Lord's Supper.

Shriver, of Union Mills, who has been conducting the C fruit and vegetable packing business for sev [• end years in that place, has found it neccssa- I ry to enlarge his establishment, and is now engaged in erecting a new building. Mr. j Shriver, we understand, has not been able to , "upply his orders heretofore, and he contcm , plates working some fifty or sixty hands dnr , mg the coming season. We wish him every } success. The Bcell Family, consisting of father, j son and two daughters, of this city, are rapid k jy rising into notoriety as skillful vocal and instrumental musicians. They have given several concerts recently, for charitable pur | poses, which have been crowned with com . pleto success. Mr. Buell conducts the musi t cal exercises in the choir of the Centenary M. E. Church, of this city. J Election.—The Pleasant Valley Building 6 Association held its annual election recently, „ which resulted as follows President, Jesse t Hesson ; Vice President, Jacob W.

His brother Henry died on the Bth ult. age 18 years, 6 months and 20 days. h “ Business Change.—The well known firm lt of Gehr 4 Orndorff, of this city, was dissolved on Thursday, Mr. Orndorff retiring from the business. Mr. Oehr will continue at the d old stand. \ There are many persons who subscribe for a daily paper, but in order to learn what i. * transipnng at home borrow their local I paper. This is liberal. Mr. John H. Thompson, lately connect ed with the New York Evening Post, died I in that city Wednesday last. Sir. Thomp - son was a Virginian by birth, and fora long t series of years has been well known in literary circles. Previous to the rebellion t he was on the editorial stiff of the Balti ■ more American, and afterwards had charge I of the Southern Liter ary Messenger. Mr. I Thompson was a fine Hehokr, an easy and ‘ | graceful writer, aud an amiable gentleman. i j George Davit, a resident of Baltimore *: county, Md., was arretted on Monday, by I I the authorities of Anne Arundel county, ion the charge of killing Robert Perry, . j colored, in 1883. No of the mur , dercr was discovered until recently, when I circumstances pointed to Davis >br the Jtemoeratic Advocate. In the DEMocaATio Advocate, of the 19ih | instant, an account was given of the proceed ings of the Union Bridge Agricultural Club, | 1 at whieh mooting a paper was read by Solo j I mou Shepherd, announcing the existence of j I a Farmers’ Club in Carroll county, many , rears, uud rather opurobriouuly denominating the Alpha Farroere Club a “young Bant- j ling,” and suggesting that the young Bantling ! change its name. It is not quite certain that the word ! “Alpha,” is not uerfectly applicable to the Club, meaning, of course, the first Farmers’ J Club organized in Carroll county. Tim “What is It?” alluded to by the writer of the above named paper, was, if I am correct ly informed, a company formed for the pur pose of facilitating the transportation of each T member’s produce to market. No one mem- 1 her raising a sufficient amount of produce or butter to Justify his going every week, hence several joined together and in turn took the other’s produce with his own to market. A Elan which is doubtlessly very commendable, | ut those companies were in very few respects like the “Alpha Farmers’ Club. ’ It is ques 1 tionable whether that company ever had a Constitution, or whether the subject of the improvement of stock, or the soil, or farming implements, or seed grain, ever came up for the deliberation of that Company, which was formed for the express purpose of breaking 1 down middle men usually called “Hucksters.’ | I And again, whatever may have been the ob ject onthe Company, alluded to in the above named paper, it was not formed in Carroll but in Frederick county. In regard to the other association alluded to, if it ever existed as a Fanners’ Club, it must have been without the knowledge of ninety-nine hundredths of the people of this county. The organization must have been dead and buried, or laid torpid like the viper in Winter. Iflhe formerbe the case, * then the “Alpha Farmers’ Club of Carroll county” is entitled to the honor of restoring life to the dead, and raising from the grave a lifeless association. But it the latter be the case, then the “Alpha Club.” like the genial warmth of the Summer restore* action to the viper, is entitled to the credit of restoring vijror and action to the Union Bridge Agri- i cultural Club which so few of the citizens of j Carroll ever heard of until recently. There is an Agricultural Society, and Man- I ufacturing Societies of Agricultural iiuple- ; ( merits, and there may be many other Societies i ’ in Carroll county, which direct!? or indirectly pertain to Agriculture, but no Farmers’ Club ' was ever formed in Carroll county before the j j “Alpha,” thence the appropriateness of the , worn “ Alpha .” The liaidling had better j retain its name.
