PORTLAND. ___ Friday Morning, February 1. 1867. T«„ .f »:-W|,r, If there is any advantage or propriety in the law requiring unpaid taxes of non-resident proprietors to be advertised in the State paper, we should be glad to have that advan tage or that propriety pointed out. There were probably some reasons which procured the enactment of the law, but whatever they were they have faded out of memory and the public needs to be again acquainted with them. Th^ disadvantages ef the preseut custom are obvious. These lists of unpaid taxes all over the State are required to be published iu a weekly newspaper at the Capital. There is delay and risk in transmitting the lists. There are unavoidable delays in the publication. There are unavoidable errors of the press, with the inconvenience of correcting them by means of correspondence. The business of the State paper is managed with admirable care, but human foresight cannot avoid these inconveniences. It would be much better if the publication of the lists could take place under the more immediate supervision of the town treasurers. But delay and inconvenience are by no means the only or most serious objections to the present mode of advertisement. The object of advertising is of course to notify the parties interested. After the lists are du ly transmitted by mail, after the mails have carried out the printed advertisements, after the errors have been discovered and, notice being duly given, have been corrected, after the mails have again distributed the revised lists from \ ork to Aroostook, the fact remains that the greater part of this labor has been wasted. The parties who should bo notified are not notified at ail. The notion of adver tising taxes dnc in Kittery and Houlton in a newspaper printed at Augusta is so preposter ous, that the public never will get accustomed to it. People who own property in Rastpoit or Fryeburg will not learn to look in any other direction for information about their property. The most natural course would be to leave to the town treasurers the same discretion in this matter of advertising, which is left to the county commissioners, for example. Let them select, each for himself, the newspapers in their several counties which will be most likely to apprise the absentees of the facts. The State paper deserves all the patronage which belongs to its position. It is and al ways has been a credit to the State. We should be unwilling to see any action taken which could impair its legitimate and well earned prosperity. But this is a matter which, we believe, concerns the public con venience ; we do not believe the publishers of the State paper either need or would accept any advantage inconsistent with the public advantage. n This matter has been presented to previous Legislatures, but has been neglected. It is now in the hauds of the Judiciary Committee, and the session is rapidly wearing away. The newspapers of the State have very generally called attention to it. We hope the Commit tee will report favorably, but if lor satis factory reasons they decide otherwise, we hope they will at least do us the favor to pro duce those reasons and not content them selves with simply reporting “Airther legisla tion inexpedient.” A Bill I* Aba I ink Mtoe-fleefciag. If the Committee on Retrenchment bad done nothing else, they would deserve the thanks of a country tired to the point of dis gust of the scramble for office, for the bill re ported at the last session of Congress by Mr. Jenckes of Rhode Island,and called up again by the same excellent legislator at the present ses sion. The bill requires that hereafter all civil officers of the government, except postmasters and such officers as are nominated by the President himself, shall be made from those persons found to be best qualified for their prospective duties, by an open and competi tive examination. Promotions in the civil service are to be made, three-iourtbs in (be order of seniority and one-fourth on account of merit to be ascertained by an examination. Misconduct and inefficiency are to be suffici ent grounds, when established by due enqui ry, for suspension or removal. This is only the rudest outline of the sys tem proposed, but it is sufficient to show what is the nature of the contemplated reform.— There are excellent officers no doubt in every department of the public service; but there is also a great swarm oi useless drones in ev ery department. The pay rolls of the public offices have become to a too great extent mere pension lists. We want men in those offices to do the work of Ihe offices. It is notorious that men utterly incapable, men who cannot even write a fair copy, are employed to do work which requires at least a respectable ed ucation and fair natural abilities. The best that can be hoped of these men is that they will do no mischief, and they generally avoid that error by doing nothing. But they draw their salaries with great regularity. They keep their places by tho iuilueuce of some un cle or aunt, or on account of their own real or imaginary influence in the local politics of their districts. The people of the United States cannot af ford to hire servants on these terms. There is the work to be done. We want, and arc wil ling to pay, good men to do it We are not willing to pay good-for-nothing men not to do it. We are not willing to pay men for their exertions in political campaigns. The minor ity as well as the majority are taxed to sup port the government, and the minority is un der no especial obligation to the men who de mand these offices as their due for party ser vices. Xeither the minority nor the majority stands in need of such services bought with a price. We do not need the help of these men to enable tu to make up our minds. The American people have a mind to govern themselves, and do not expect or intend to he governed by professional politicians. Let the public service be purified ol these men. Let the public servants understand that they arc servants of a whole people and not of a party. Let them learn to respect themselves, to hold their own opinions, to to vote in accordance with those opinions, to abstain from tbe attempt to control public opinion, and so secure to themselves the re spect which tbeir qualifications ought to com mand. We see Mr. Seward insulting our Min ister to Austria, because an exaggerated ru mor ot Mr. Motley's disapproval of the Presi dent’s policy had reached tbe State Depart ment. We see Congress cutting off the salary of onr Minister to Portugal, because Mr. Har vey wrote a letter disapproving the Congres sional policy. This is all wrong. The politi cal opinions of an officer should not be con strued as an official misdemeanor. Congress itself has a direct interest in the passage of Mr. Jenckes’s bill. Applicants for all sorts of places, and on all sorts of preten ces except capacity, infest the lodgings of Congressmen and the lobbies of the Capitol, in swarms. The prospect of a strict examina tion would warn off at Least nine-tenths of these pests. On grounds of economy, for the furtherance of the public business, for the restriction of the evil of office-seeking, for the relief of Congress from a most onerous and thankless burden, this bill ought to pass. With the hill restricting the President’s pow er of removal, it would be of incalculable ben efit in correcting the political Immorality which has lo.ig been regarded as one of the worst blemishes upon our system of govern ment. _ —The waiters in a Cincinnati hotel quit work because the proprietors re fused to take again into their employ a discharged seevant, They had twenty-five days wages due them when they gave up their places.

A looking-glass is a good thing to have It is a very old remark that looking-,!,*** fuJ. msli a hne opportunity ior reflection. H(re in the first place is a French mirror, the Mor. iteur, which publishes a letter received by ti e French Government from New York, an nouncing the following important fact: Thu competition of the French Transatlan tic) Company and of the English Companies of Navigation has put an end to the existence of the only line of American steamers plying regularly betweeu Europe and tho United States. The directors of the New York and Havre Steamship Company have determined on selling the Arago and Fulton. These two vessels date from 1850. Their service was in terrupted during the civil war, but was resum ed towards the end of 1866. Not possessing the speed of the Transatlantic steamers, they obtained little freight, aud the number oi their declined every day. With them the united States flag disappears from the steam lines between Europe aid he State*. Tills is rather a cheerful view of ourselves in the French looking-glass, isn’t it? Even these lubberly Parley-vous, who never pre tended to be seamen, are shrugging their I shoulders and talking about the disappear ance of our flag from the ocean. But let os take a look in the great revolving minor at London. The Times says,— If there was any branch of manufacture or commerce in Which the United States enjoyed natural aud apparently indestructible advant ages, it was that of shipbuilding. Americans took to navigation as instinctively as English men; tlieir forests and mines gave them inex haustible supplies of material, and their pecul iar skill in design am', workmanship has been so recently exemplified in the ocean yacht race, that we need not insist on the point any further. There were, iu fact, no better ship builders or hardier navigators in the world and, us a necessary result, they had a building and carrying trade inferior to none but our own and competing hopefully with that. Bow, it is simple matter of fact that half tins trade ha* already been destroyed. The Secre tary gives the exact figures and shows that some fUXlO,00(10 tons of American shipping have fallen duirng the past five years to little more than 3,000,000, while tlie foreign shipping by which the trade has been appropriated counts for some 4,500,000 tons instead of 2,000,000. Iu other words, business to this ex tent has left the United States and been trans ferred by the irresistible law of commerce to other conutriei—mainly to our own. The British looking-glass Jlatters us no more than the French. Nay, we cut a still more pulftil figure in this aspect The Tiroes takes the figures of our Mr. McCulloch, and shows beyond a peradventure just what our legislation is doing for us. This state of af fairs demands a remedy. In this industry of shipbuilding we must compete directly with foreign builders, and we must put cur own la bor on an equal footing with theirs. Our builders must have their materials fiee, or the business must be given up and with it the transoceanic carrying trade. Whether this Congress furnishes the needed relief or not, we do not believe the American people will submit to the ruin of the shipping interest Our people take to the water like ducks, and a Congress of hens will be unable to eradicate the aquatic instinct. We do not believe the Thirty-ninth Congress will neglect this mat ! ter, but it it should, there are other elections coming. Main Board of Agriculture. The annual session of this hod; was held in its room in the State Capitol, Augusta, from Jan. 16th to the 20th last. It consists of six teen members, one for each of the fifteen counties, and one representing the Maine State Agricultural Society. Samuel Wasson, Eh).,of Hancock county was elected Presi dent of the Board, Hon. Asa Smith of Penob scot couhty, Vice President, and S. L. Goodale Esq. of Tork county, Secretary. Mr. G. has sustained this office for several years, and has discharged its important duties with much ability and great public acceptance. His An nual Reports made to and published by the Legislature, have always contained muck val uable infuitnation, and hare contributed largely to promote the cause of Agriculture, not only in Maine, but in other States,—lor no State has had so good Reports as his. They have been extensively called for and circulat ed widely throughout the Union. On the afternoon of the first day, thirteen topics, in an interrogatory form, were assign ed to different members of the Board. They were as follows: I. Under what conditions will agriculture in Maine be most successful?—French of Franklin. 2- To what extent can the preparation of the soil for crops be profitably carried in Au tumn.—Smith of Penobscot. 3. In what manner and to what extent should farms be fenced ?—Prince of Audio scoggin. 4. The constiuction of bams.—Farley of Lincoln. 5. To what extent should mixed husbandry be practiced ?—Carpenter of Kennebec. 6. What are the best methods of seeding down to grass ?—Ayer of Waldo. 7. Do health and economy require more at tention on the part of our farmers, to the pro duction and use of garden vegetables and fruits?—Chamberlain or Maine State Society. 8. The imperfect obligations—as their dis charge affects the physical as well as moral health of the farmer and his family.—Dana of Cumbeiland. 9. Are the direct and indirect advantages of sheep husbandry wifh the present tariff on for eign wool such as to warrant its increase in Maine ?—Moore of Somerset. 10. Which is the more profitable, the rais ing of cattle or sheep .’—Holmes of Oxford. II. By what practical method can an effec tive and useful connexion between the Indus trial College and the common schools be ef fected ?—Dike of Sagadahoc. 12. Can artificial manures be profitably used and if so, what kind, and to what extent ?_ Wasson of Hancock. 13. The comparative advantages of the cul ture of lndiau com aud the smaller grains.— Jefferds of Piscataquis. Some of these questions, perhaps, are so general as to afford scope for too much of mere theory and speculation; yet, several of them are of considerable practical import ance. On the afternoon of tlie second day. Mr. Jeffords of Piscataquis read a paper which he had prepared on the Raisicg of Horses, aDd Mr. Chamberlain of the State Society made a Report on Apple Orchards. This elicited a discussion, which Is briefly reported in the Maine Fanner, to which wc arc indebted. Mr. Dike of Bath believed there was no dif ficulty in raising fruit anywhere in the State of Maine, where our apples are superior to those of any other State in New England. It was very important to keep out the grass, and to thoroughly manure the soil. He had apple trees upon a cold, wet soil, but had been un successful with them until he underdrained the soil, and gave the ground thorough culti vation. Black-heart cherries with him, upon the above soil, had borne abundantly the past season, and he attributed it largely to a heavy top-dressing with compost manure. He al luded to the importance of cultivating the land on which trees were growiig, and deem ed itas necessary to cultivate an orchard as a corn fuld. Mr. Dana of Portland concurred in the same idea and said : The proper placo to plant a tree is on the top of tho ground, not in a hole. A tree can not live in a cold, wet soil, without under draining. The rootlets make a poor growth if coniintd in a hole, but if covered with the material nature provides, they succeed admir ably. 11c believed the soil of an orchard should be kept open the same as with any oilier crop, aud no crop should be allowed near the trees, or within reach of the roots. Rapidly grown wood contains a superabundance ol sap, and heuce the tree is injured by the frost. He regarded the super-phosphate of the Cum berland Bone Company the licst manure tor apple trcei be bad ever used, as it produces good bald wood, but he would not have it put too near the tree. Dwarf apples will produce in two years from time ol planting, and a Red Astrachan apple, ou a tree not higher than his head, bote much better than some on larger uecs. In this climate our orchards must be protected from the winds. He would recommend belts oi trees on the windward side of the orchard for this purpose. If these cannot be secured, a slat lence will answer the purpose, having the boards about ouc inch apart. The subject of injurious insects is oi great importance, and he thought it should receive the earnest attention oi the members of the Board. In order to stop the increase of the apple worm, he had taken about a ijuart of coal tar, inccr|iorated it evenly with about a bushel of sand, and sowed it under the trees at the time when the lly is deposing the eggs. It is oll'ensive to the insects, and it is not in jurious to the tree. He placed a very high value upon It, and couid recommend it to oth ers. What both of these gentlemen said of the importance of underdraining cold, wet land, is very true; but there may be tome doubt about the utility of keeing the land ol an orchard al ways under cultivation and llee from grass. You caunot plough among iroes without wounding and breaking many of the roots, and wj are not aware that the mutilation of roots is of any advantage to the growth of the tr'e. Grass never will grow rank and bind the ground uuder trees; and annual mulcl - *ng will keep the soil loose and moist, which k a grand condition of health and tbritt. oreover, stable manure, which Is commonly used in cultivated crops, grown in orchards, sue as potatoes, corn, turnips, beaus, <fcc., is positively poisonous to the root, of trees. It p uces gangi* ,e an(j other vegetable dis ersesupon the wooden til,res. Well rotted 3h°“ld "• Wied to apple trees, and If this is spread on the surface, it will do as much good as il ploughed in. it will be sure to leach dowu and find its way to the feeding rootlets. What Mr. Dana means hy saying a tree s'tould Ire planted on the top of tire ground and not in a hole prepared to retain its root-, we are at a loss to apprehend. Snrely dame Nature never intended an apple tree to grow with all its roots above ground. She plants the tree under the surface; and if we follow her laws, we can hardly ever err. Probably he meant that a tree should not have its roots doubled up and jammed into a stiff post-hole, like a post that is set lor a fence. If so, he was right in his remark. The ‘‘hole” should be made large, and the roots spread out nat urally in it, and then have tine earth silled to till the hole. Mr. Dana said, “rapidly grown wood contains a superabundance of sap, and hence the tree is irOured by the frost.” It strikes us that his system of enriching and cultivating the #,il ol an orchard, must cause a rapid growth of wood, while the fleering of the superabundance of sap is calculated to injure and kill the new growth. VV'bat he says about the protection of orchards from high winds is very true. His commendation, also, of the super-phosphate of the Cumberland Done Company, is well deserved. Some apples, dwarf or not, will bear in two or three years when transplanted from the nursery, whilst o the is require a longer time to fruit. Tie Ked Astrachan, the High Top Sweeting, the Nodhead and some others bear very young; wnilst the Northern Spy, the Porter, the ILI. Greening, &c., are some years in reaching tho bearing state. The coal tar and sand sowed under the tree will not prevent the fly depos iting its eggs in the bark near the ground, un less it coats the bottom of tho tree so the fly cannot penetrate it, and then anything else which will thus protect the stump will an swer the same purpose. The fly has no muff lers by which the odor ol the car will prevent its approach. Mr. Ilaincs of Aroostook said, twenty five years ago he carried trees from Hallow well to Aroostook and set them out, but they did not succeed. Iu late years, however, they succeed very well in Aroostook county, but the trees are not grafted. Forty years afo, no ap ples or plums were grown iu Bangor; now, they are grown there to great perfection. He would like an explanation of this fact. So should we like very well to know what has produced this change in the climate at Ban gor, if, indeed, it be true, that apples arc grown there to great perfection. We have a friend residing in that city, who gives much attention to gardening and fruit culture, and yet he says he cannot do any thing to advan tage with apples. He comes to Kennebec tor them. Cherries, indeed, do exceedingly well in Bangor. We hope the Industrial Colletje at Orono will settle the question of the adapt ability of the climate of the Penobscot valley to the raising of apples and other fruit Mr. Goodalo thought the failure of New York frees in this slate was not simply be cause they came from New York, but because they wete cheaply grown ami grown to sell. They are sold in Bocbciter lor a small price, and brought here and sold tor a large one. He had New York frees upon his grounds, gro- n in a proper way, that were as good trees as he had. Scions cut from trees In Massachusetts, will grow ju*t as well with us as scions grewu and cut here. True, some kinds are mere ap plicable to the climate in Massachusetts and some to our own climate; but this is a matter that any intelligent grower can decide for him self. We always like to hear from Mr. Goodalc. He it a practical man, and has had great ex perience in the nursery business, and in fruit raising. There has been much injury done in this State by some of the New York nursery trees. Like Peter Pindar’s razors, they are “made to sell.” Grafted on small bits of roots of old trees, and planted out thick in the nur sery. they grow up rapidly and lank like whip sticks, and when brought hither and planted ont in the open ground, subject to the wind and storm, like feeble children, they yield to the rude elements and die. A tree grown from an old bit of root can never be long-lived. We have little hope of children bom of octo genarian patents. The discussions on other topics were inter esting, ot which we may take notice hereaf ter. _Traxi.
