iris 3HANSS ADVANCE- WEDNESDAY, N O E E 76. H. H. YOUNvi. Publisher & Editor. Possiblebut not Probable. We cannot deny that it is possi ble for this country to be plunged into civil war, because of circum stances which may result from the presidential contest, but it is hardly wri&e to predict anything of the sort. As for either house of Congress throwing out the vote of any State, it is sheer nonsense. First, they have no right to do so. Their only duty is to count the votes of the electors who are chosen by the peo ple of the States. As to whether these electors are fairlv and legally chosen, it is none of theii business. These electors are State officers, and it is the prerogative of each State to choose whom it pleases to act as electors, provided that they are not disqualified by alienship, at tainder of crime, or incumbency of some federal office. Certificates of election are issued to these electors by the authorities of their respective States, and for either house o...

CORRESPONDENCE. ^^.Constributions for this department atr respectfully solicited, and thoae who aid us in this manner will hi^eour thanks. We have only to as': writer? to avoid porjonaU ities and abuse. Study Your Ritual. We are afraid a great cause of the lack of interest in our Order is from a want of proper appreciation "of the sublime teachings in our ritual. To op preciate them fully, they must be under stood and studied. The want of effect is frequently destroyed by blundering and stammering reading, so that what would otherwise be beautiful and in structive is rendered simply ridiculous. Granges are so quickly organized that really they have no time to get properly instructed in the working of the Order It is not infrequent to find, during initia tion of candidates, a number of members who do not really know where to find their respective p.irts. Then a great number of our officers are not posted in the secret and unwritten work of the Order. This is a fatal mistake, and must...

VOL. IV. Our Public Schools. The report of the State Superin tendent of Education, as we have already remarked, is a singular pro duction. opens with an argu in favor of the new method ol apportioning the public funds, i. e. on the basis of the scholars en rolled in the schools instead of on that of the number of schoolable children in the district, as was form erly done. Of course, he gives some very sound reasons for ap proving of the new plan and points out distinctly objections to the one it superseded but we can hardly agree with him in all his conclusions. us the new method seems to be almost as objectionable and unjust as the old, and quite as likely to be made available for dishonest prac tices. We would recommend Mr. Burt to put himself to the trouble of walking to the opposite side of the statue and examining the color of the shield from that stand-point, be fore deciding so positively whether it is made of gold or silver. Continuing his argument, he pro ceeds to say that ...

GRANDMA'S BOTS. Our little Allie stands to-night So close beside his grandma's chair, And qestions her of various things— Of earth, and sky, and everywhere, And grandma answers o'er and o'er, Her gentle patience never lost Tho' oft it would be hard to tell Which of the two is puzzled most. Such mystic things he wants to know, Olt times tco deep ibr her to show. But patiently she tries to give An answer to each question rare His hand in one of her the while. Her other smooths his ringlets fair. At last he says, with earnest voice, "Your little boy I'll always be But, grandma, did you ever have Another little boy like me "No little boys said grandma then, "Ah, me!—my little boys are men." Deep hidden in the human heart Are chords of wondrous harmony And truer after many years Their quick vibration seems to be And Allie, thoughtlessly, has touched A chord, whose muscle, sweet and low, Thrills grandma's aged heart again As in the days of long ago When she could, with a mother's pride, T...

MS GRANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 6, 76 11. II. YOUNG, Publisher & Editor. An Exaggerated Story. The Pioneer-Press of the 30th inst., publishes a horrible story of murder and outrage in Louisiana, being the testimony given by a col ored women named Eliza Pinkston, before the Returning Board of that State, to show that the democrats resort to violence and intimidation in Ouachita parish.. The story that her house was visited by white men during a night shortly before the election, that her husband was dragged out of bed, taken a few yards from the house and atrocious ly butchered, that her babe's throat was cut and the dead body cast in to the lake, and that she was out raged by the assailants and then barbarously hacked with an axe and knives. Throughout the story is hor rible beyond conception, and, asdeemed the women told it, far worse than even the highly colored accounts of cruelties perpetrated by savages. Indeed, it is incredible that men The answer made by the witnes...

The very consider able amount involved would seem to make some efforts to arrive at a know ledge of the value of our own poultry product desirable. We may, however, readily make some estimates for our selves which may approximate very nearly perhaps the truth. Knowing the habits of our people in regard to the consumption of poultry and eggs, and something of those of the French people as to their necessity, on acount of their poverty, of selling in the mar ket th...

VOL. IV. —Mr. Abram Hewitt, son-in law of Peter Cooper, and prime minister to Samuel J. Tilden, recently had a conversation with President Grant about the result of the presidential election in the Southern States and especially In South Carolina. afterwards made- such reports of what the President had said to him as to lead democrats to conclude that their pretensions in the South- ern States would be supported by the Administration, and it is possi ble that his reports influenced Wade Hampton's conduct as well as that of the Carolina rifle clubs, and led them to proceed to greater ex tremes than they otherwise^ would have done. Subsequently, Mr. Hewitt has had another conversa tion with the President, when the latter gave him to understand dis- tinctly that he had misrepresented the import of the former conversa- tion materially, and that the admin- istration would not recognize any other authority in South Carolina than that which appeared to be le- gally elected. And, likewise, ...

FAR AN Do Horses Reason. Here is a good story about a horse, which Is told in the Boston Journal, and we presume many of our readers could tell as good a one if they would only take the time to write it out for publication. Such notes on animal in stinct or reasoning powers are always interesting to old and young: It would be difficult to convince some people that horses and dogs are possessed of reasoning powers, and as difficult to convince others, who fond ly love these animals, that they are unable to reason from cause to effect. A story comes to us, well vouched for, which will at least interest the reader, if not convince him that horses are possessed of more of the human at tributes than many people are wont to credit them with. Among the many horses owned by the Highland street railroad company, is one which used to give the hostler's a deal of trouble by slipping his hal ter and roaming at will about the stable. The halter was, on each occa sion, buckled on as tightly as po...

THE ELECTORAL VOTE. How it was Cast on Wednesday, the 6th. The electors met in their several State capi tals on Wednesday, Dwceinbur 6th, to cast their votes for President. Everything was done as previously reported, except in the States of South Carolina, Louisiana, Florida, end Oregon. In the two former States the canvassing boards gave certificates of election to the Republican electors. In Florida, the majority of the canvassing board coinmis sioned the Republican electors, while one member of the board—the Attorney Genera) of the State—commissioned the Tilden elec tors. In Oregon, the Governor refused to commission Watts, one of the Republican electors, because he was a postmaster when elected, and it is claimed was thereby ineligi ble, though he has since resigned. The Gov ernor commissioned one Tilden elector in his place. The result is, that in the four States named there are two sets of votes for Presi dent, and the final result now depends upon which set of votes is allowe...

T7IE GRANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 13, 76 O N O Publisher A Editor The Southern Vote. That fraud, intimidation and vio lence has been practiced in the Southern States to prevent the ne vent the negroes from voting and to secure democratic successes, we have never doubted. It is entirely natural that this should be the case, inasmuch as no people can bring themselves to recognize as political equals those whom they have been accustomed to regard as inferiors and slaves. And especially is it re pugnant to humanity to do this un der circumstances which implies that such conduct is the effect of compulsion. By a little self-exam ination we may speedily discover that, with the best of us, attempts to coerce us into respecting and es teeming even those who are not obnoxious to us, will result in mak ing us hate them if it is persisted in and we may be sure that the peo ple of the South are not more char itable and amiable than ourselves. Knowing this and being some what acquainted w...
