W cannot undertake to return or reserve com munications that are not used. A Matter for Consideration. A few days since, a remark fell from the lips of a leading state official, who is well versed in Maine affairs, to the effect that in every county except Aroostook there are unmistakable indications that agricultural pursuits are languishing, and that the cum ber of tarms successfully cultivated, is each year growing less. Indeed, so obvious is the decline of agriculture in Maiue, that the casual observer iu passing through the towns nearest our cities, must be struck with the number of houses bearing the placard “for sale,” and the number already deserted. The natural conclusion, one would arrive at, as to the cause of this decline, is that farming in Maine has not proved so remuner ative as u.iior departments of industry. Such however is not the case; for during the ex istence of the State, there has not been a pe riod when agricultuie in Maine has met so ready and large rewards, and when its branch es were so diversified as during the last de cade. Aside from a few instances of rare for tune in speculation which hare been overbal anced a hundred times by great failures, the returns of well directed effort in farming in Maine have born as great or greater than those of any other of the industrial pursuits. Indeed, after some inquiry, we venture to predict that no capital employed in industrial pursuits has been so renumerative iu Maine the past ten years as that intelligently em ployed in agriculture. We are confident that any person who cares to make the inquiry will find our statement true in a remarkable degree. It is admitted that thousands of farmers live at a poor dying rate—that a great many work without heart or purpose, employing the same old methods and raising the same crops in the same way as did their grand fathers when the soil was new. A great many too, work hard, but imbued with the idea that there is no progress to be made in their vocation—that it matters not how the back of the earth is tickled with the hoe, it will laugh, or rather to their minds, gape with an indifferent or sob with a reluctant harvest— follow the old beaten track as mere machioes. Thousands of young men have seen agricul ture through this medium, and there is every reason why it should be repulsive. Few de sire to be machines; yet as they have been taught, there is no opportunity for the exer cise of their brains, no field for development, no certain rewards that young men prize, and hence they seek the city to work harder for generally less substantial reward or go West to till broad acres—for whom?—well, mostly for the speculators and the Tom Scots and Commodore Vanderbilt. While the farming towns arc being gradn ally depleted, the cities are being crowded to iapletion. In the city, even in the most la borious occupations, there is a surplus of la borers ; while for more favored situations and the professions there is a hopeless multi tude of aspirants. Farmers still sacrifice their farms and flock to the city, to engage in lighter business and waste their small sav ings in avocations they know nothing about. In every considerable village and especially in the cities, there are hundreds of men striving hopelessly with poverty, who, by us ing the same degree of prudence and industry on the deserted farms of Maine would secure a competency. ' It is not our purpose to enter into an ex tended enumeration of the direful causes that are tending to depopulate our rural towns. They are numerous and no class can free itself from the responsibility. The boy on the farm learns from his father that there is no alleviation in the ceaseless round of toil. He is taught to believe that there is no ad vance, and that the farm life and occupation is little better than perpetual prison life. The school teacher begins to early remind the boy “that lives of great men all remind us,” etc., and he aspires to the Presidency. His read ing books at school are replete with the “ex celsior” examples of the poor farmer’s boy who toiled on to become a chief justice, or senator, or merchant prince, and henceforth he sees no allurements short of the bench, the forum, A. T. Stewart’s establishment, or some other equally incomprehensible and unattainable object. The rural physician, the rural clergyman and the rural lawyer usually advise the young man to go to col lege or to enter a profession. Rarely if ever, do these real magnates of our country towns ad vise him to stick to the farm. Rarely do they take auy interest in that department, though they have it in their power to do much. But it is not so much an object to diagnos es, e the cause of the decay as to apply a rem edy. That is most difficult, yet we doubt not that it can be found. It mu3t begin in an attempt to correct the pernicious and growing aversion to manual labor that exists in society; there must, too, be an attempt made to make young men see that agriculture is a science that requires intelligence and skill; the school master, the school book and the literature that seek to inspire the coun try boy to strive for positions he can never attain should be banished, their united re sult* being cheap jacks, speculators, office seekers and swindlers; the local press, the clergymen and the other local professionals of the country should use their influence and culture to correct the growing evil; statistics should be published showing that farming is remunerative in Maine; our Sta‘e agricul tural organizations should do something to correct the evil, but unfortunately these have fallen into the hands of the ruffians of the race course and a set of wire-pullers who are only interested in securing the few little offi ces at their control. Those are, however, a large number of in telligent farmers who can give some valuable hints on this subject and from such we would like to receive communications, assured that this subject is one of vital importance to all classes in our State and to none to a greater degrea than those dwelling in cities who de pend upon the country for their bus iness. A commercial college which among other branches teaches penmanship in another city, makes us a proposition to advertise to the amount of $30 on the condition that we shall j take our pay in tuition. It may be possible that the Press compositors would warmly approve the acceptance of the proposition, if n°t for the editorial rooms, for some our correspondents; but until the arga\n is made with the commer entTtn C0'.lege>lct us adjure our correspond ed °n,y °n °ne side slanding^bout ^lrginia"a had a misunder ing,the%erveVKhady-^e to teach tlemen required them to Rn-ii°n0r as gen“ blood. They chose seconds-th 6aCl1 others fired and one was made to belie m6t ’ t,1Py had fatally wounded the other* tjjat *'e turns out that their seconds imposed °W 11 them by putting blank cartridges in shot guns. Evidently the “code of honor” is on its last legs in Virginia. It cannot stand ridicule. The Boston Advertiser believes that the postal card is a new means of communication, and that those who keep a separate postal ac count will find at the close of the year tha they have used as much for letter postage as usual. The conclusion, therefore, is that the introduction of the postal card will not be in jurious to the revenues of the post office de partment. : The fellow tbat sends tbose curious dc bes from the Modoc country undoubt ed^ could find a better model for tbe prepara tion of concise and valuable news than that adopted by him, but he makes amends by at tempting to be humorous by telegraph, and, considering that he is in the Modoc country > and on short rations, displays a gushing cheerfulness that surpasses Mark Tapley. For instance: About this time the gentle Warm Spring Indians, who were outside the interviewing apartment, commenced singing one of their nationcl melodies and drawing their bright knives across their neat moccasins, which caused an uueasiuess among the squaws and terminated the consultation We regret however,tbat after previously stat ing that Capt. Jack is a temperate and seri ous minded savage, he should so far impair his previous statement of his high character, as to relate the circumstance of his possession of a stolen watch and with it played cheap jack to delude his followers to believe that they were pachyderms and might defy Feder al bullets. The fanciful dispositions he has made of that Shacknasty family, first having them all killed in battle, and then bringing them into camp as irresponsible prisoners of war, is reprehensible and can but lacerate the finer feelings of the braves that bear that aris tocratic name. The Bangor Democrat has always beeh a setious and sometimes an intense newspaper. Consequently when its offshoot the Commer cial attempts to be funny, it over-shoots its aim very much as good Daniel Drew would as the clown of (he circus ring or Gen Butler in the attempt tobs a statesman. We are reminded of this by its latest at'empt at drollery,which was that Judge Kent’s friends were making arrangements to withdraw that gentleman in favor of Mr. Stone at the dicta tion of the Ilamiin men. Judge Kent’s friends are quietly but earnestly at work to secure his nomination at Bangor and their assurances are such that they do not contem plate any such contingency as that to which the Commercial refers; and least of all a bar gain cf that character. Bcciness Changes.—The following are re cent business changes in this State: Auburn,—Dorman & Littlefield, wood, coal, &c., dis; now Henry P. Dorman. I. C. Lombard & Co., boot and shoe manufac tures, admit Joseph Littlefield and G. W. Cur tis. Fairfield.—C. D. Lawrence & Co; E. T. Hinds withdraws.

A colony of Friends, counting some thous and thees, is to be settled in Western Texas. According to Florida papers, fleas hare mul tiplied there to such an extent that all the in habitants are suffering from phlebitis. An Ohio legislator has presented a resolution forbidding any more babies being named John Smith in that State. The difficulty of disposing of vagrant canines as the dog-days approach has been solved iu San Francisco by the establishment of numer ous Chinese eating-houses. Gen. Schofield writes that the Sandwich Is landers are ripe for annexation aud anxious to become a pait of the territory of the United States. Well posted men in tha upper peninsula of Michigan estimate that 1,500,000 tons of iron ore will be shipped from that part of the State this summer. Persons sending five-twenty bonds of 1862 this month to the United States Treasurer, in cluded in the fourth call, upon which interest ceases on the first proximo, will have mailed to them checks of redemption by the 1st of June. The residence of the late LeGrand Lockwood at Norwalk, Ct., wiiich cost 81,300,000, has gme into possession of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern railway company, which held a $300,000 mortgage on it. A Boston clergyman, last Sunday, alluded to the spring bonnets, as those incomprehensi ble huddles of finery and frivolity which ladies place upon their heads.” Incomprehensible huddle is good,even for a clergyman. According to Mr. Creswell, the postal cards costs the Government $1 36 per thousand. The orders up to date have reached the enormous amount of 25.000,000, of which the cost to the people will bo $250,000, and to the Governm ent $34,000. They have a business like method of proced ure iu Kansas. In the midst of the excitement caused by the terrible discoveries of bodies uud er the Bender house, a small board appeared on one of the graves announcing that the deserted Bender claim had been pre-empted by another settler. The Chicago Times doesn’t take to the New York World’s plan for galvanizing the Demo cratic party iuto life on the free-trade issue,and contemptuously speaks of the paper itself as the “Eastern frontier organ of the recollection call ed the Democratic party.” A young mau in a suburban town sent off his first postal card on Thursday morning. After writing a message on the back he enclosed it in an envelope,clapped on a three cent stamp, and dropped it into the Post Office, remarking that it was a very handy arrangement, and should have been introduced years ago. It has been stated in New Hampshire that Mr. Parker, one of the Democratic Congress men from that State, who so bravely voted against the extra salary, and, after the elec tion, drew the money, proposes to devote it to the founding of an orphan’s asylum; but the Nashua Telegraph says that the only orphan’s asylum he is erecting is a $5,000 residence for his own use. STATE NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. Last Friday night one corner of the store be longing to Mr. Prince, on Lisbon street, Lewis ton, settled about four inches breaking the glass in the windows.

Alden, oakum manufacturer of Cam den, is erecting a new building, and will put in new machinery. So says the Herald. A lady and her daughter boarded last sum mer with William Cobb of Camden. Wh.*n they left the lady said to Mr. C., “If I should die will you adopt my child?” He assented. East week he received a letter stating the wo man was dead. True to his word be went after 6 girl and brought her borne.

The addition to the post office in Lubec has been plastered with our lime, and the mason who did the work, after an experience of thirty years in the use of Rockland lime, pronouuces the lime manufactured by the L. L. B. Compa ny to be superior to the Rockland article, re quiring one-third more sand and making a much stronger and more durable cement. Sam ples of the Time have been sent to Boston, tried by practical masons and received their unquali fied recommendation.

The Maine Poultry Association offers a libe ral premium to the boy not less than 12 years of age, and another to the girl over 12 yearsold, for the best collection of fowl of their own rais ing, to lie exhibited at the fair of this Associa tion For All Iiocnlitien and Climes. A true specific is adapted to all localities and climes and lor this reason, that it strikes at the causative principal of the diseases which it is administered to cure. Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters, for example, is a true specific, not only because it fortifies the body against the external influences which prompts dis ease, but because, when taken as a remedy instead oi as a preventive, it neutralizes the infeci ive principle in the blood and thereby destroys the primary source of the ailment. Hence as an antidote to epidemic disorders, and to all complaints wbich are produced or aggravated by miasma, or the presence of any thing deleterious in the air. the water or the soil, it is as nearly infallible as any medicinal preparation can be. In our own country, as a remedy for intermit tent fevers, bilious affections, constipation, dyspepsia, nervous weakness, rheumatism and general debility, it is unrivalled, nor is it. less celebrated in the tropics as a preventive of malarious feveis. SPECIAL NOTICES. MV SOW SPEAKS. Mr. H. K. Stevens : Dear Sir—This is to show thnt my son was taken sick in January, 1864, with Scrofula, which came out in large sores and ulcers on his leg and hip. His leg and hip was swelled more than twice its natural size. He hat! several doctors of high standing in their profession—two from Boston and three from Charleston—without getting a bit better. He was obliged to lie wherever he was placed, for ho had no nse of his limbs whatever. When we had given up all hopes of his living, we were told to try VEGK 1JINE, the great blood remedy; and he had taken it but a short time before we could see a great change. The sores run so bad that we had to change the cloths four or five times a r’ay. Still, he was getting better; for he conld move his limbs and help bimselr a little. He was soon able to sit up in bed, and, by constant use of VEGETINE, it has cured him. He has a lame leg which he will probably have for life; but we all honestly believe, if wo had used VEGETINE before we had bothered with those doctors, it would have saved the use of his leg, and restored it to nat ural health. I hope all those troubled with Scrofula will read this testimony of me and my son, who is now woll, and able to speak tor himself.. CATHERINE MAHONEY, DANIEL MAHONEY. 19 Trenton St., Charlestown, Mass. May 10‘ 1872. ' The above plain but honest statement conclusively shows the quick and thorough cleansing effects of the VEGETINE in Scrofula. Wliat is Yegetine? It is a compound extracted from barks, roots, and herbs. It is Nature’s remedy. It is perfectly harm less from aDy bad effect upon the system. It is nour ishing and strengthening. It acts directly upon the blood. It quiets the n«rvous s stem. It gives you good, sweet sleep at night. It is a gieat panacea for our aged fathers and mothers, for it gives them strength, quiets their nerves, and gives them Na ture’s sweet sleep, as has been proved by many an aged person. It is the great Blood-^urifter. It is a soothing remedy for our children. It has relieved and cured thousands. It is very pleasant to take— every child likes it. Unsolicited Evidence. Springfield, Me., May 14, 1872. Mr. H. R. Stevens : Dear Sir—My daughter has been out of health for about two years. About a year ago she had a tumor coroe<on her hide, which was very painful. I saw VEGETINE advertised in the Farmer, and sent to Bangor and got two bottles. She is now tak ing the second b ttle: her health is much improved and the tumor is going away as fast as it came. Everyone in this vici.iitj knows what VEGETINE has done for my daughter, and I take every opportu nity to recommend it to those who are not aware of its great value. Yours respectfully, MRS. SUSAN C.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused t he cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia arc the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate from a disordered condition of the etomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result.* Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly.
