About nineteen years ago, I heard that some men who had been brought up on a farm had clubbed together, and one of them was going to publish a paps'r, which should consist mainly of accounts of hue different farmers cultivated various craps, and such like matters. I sent for the paper and have done so every year since, and now I have nineteenlarg? volumes, every page of which 1 have read, a little at a time, and the whole has not cost th? produce of a single acre.

There can be no difficult}' in ascertaining. They are not to be found in the utterances of any excitid demagogue, or of an extravagant fa natic. Take the general tenor of Republi can speeches in Congress at the last session. See what is really put forth as Republican doctrine in the Chicago platform. Note care fully what is said by the sounder and more influential Republican journals. Read the cumpaign speeches of the most popular Re publican orators. Above all study the re corded opinions of Abraham Lincoln him self, as the most direct possible exposition of the principles that will guide his administra tion. I)o not seize upon and attempt to per vert his abstract avowal* (not more positive than were long ago uttered at the South and have been constantly repeated there,) of nat ural antagonism between slavery and free labor but look at his explicit declarations ''in regard to every actual, practical measure in which thj South is specially interested."

The following concluding remarks are appli cable to all classes of young men As a means of resisting the temptations of youth, I would only repeat a long entertain ed conviction that young men should marry early in life, and commence its cares with some loving heart to lean upon, and the in spiration of some suft, sweet voice to nerve him for the conflict of care into which he enters. Let her be no painted butterfly to lead him along the path of pleasure but let kindness warm her heart, affection beam in her eye, truth cling to her lips: and above all, her intelligence be linked with re ligious convictions. With her, life's darkest hours will brighten with hope, i!s worst for unes be met with courage.

We want his Railroad bill passed, and he can do it better than any other man you can put in his" place. I find that the people in California have much more confidence in the ability of Col. Curtis to do something for them in the way of a Railroad than they have in their own representatives. A great portion o! the peo pie 're ive passed over his proposed route and they know it is practicable, and they very much desire to have his bill becoaie a law. The people are wide awake here on the subject of a Railroad to the Pacific and they liegin to look with distrust on any man who "shuffles," as some of their represen tatives have, on that question. Give us Col. Curtis's road and we are all right. Yander bilt the great shark of the Pacific, may row his own boat then. The Republicans are sanguine here that they will carry California for Lincoln. The Douglas and Rrcckenridge parties are very hostile and bitter, and, judging from their accounts of each other, I have come to the conclusion that they are very corrupt. ,,.
