Thle darkest hours of night are just be ore the dawn ; a.l those who do not watch the principals at work in human society may not in the hlor of darkness see the light beyond. Five years ago the out look was dark, the tide of legislation seem ed controlled by muoney kings, and the pro tests of the laboring classes were ignored. The grange with its aggressive ideas was scarcely known, and the name was spoken only will tderision, It was not ia politic:l organization, said politicans, awl amomnted to nothing, By tlds they nmer.nt it would comnltlld no inltueue, D)id these wise heads pause for a momuient, to think that the organization that makes public senitiment, ultimately makes law? So the grange has done. It has kept clear of political traps, but has sounded loud its demands for jus tice to the agricultural classes. And at last these appeals have reached the most high courts. Four years ago, while the railroad law was pendling in ...

MIrELLANEOU U. SBANDS BELOW THE OCEAN LEVEL. In an article treating on some remarkable results of evaporation and rminfall, published on page 257 of our issue of April 28, this year, we described one of the instances of the great excesses of eval)oration over rain fall. namely, the Caspian Sea, on which the surface is as much below the ocean level as our Lake Champlain is above the sam:ue, namely, more thanl SO feet. There are how ever, two still more remark able cases of tile same sort, the Dead Sea in Palestine and the Great Desert or Sahra in Africa. The former is remarkable for the great amount or the depression, and the latter for the im inense surface depressed, being in fact the bottom of an extensive island lake, totally dried up by the heat of a tropical climate, :uded by the absence of feeding streams, and by the rainless area which covers its greatest portion. It is, on an average, SO feet bbtlow the ocean, about as much as thi (Caspian Sea ; but it is remarkable for its ...

Rocky Ioutailn Hllsband an. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. -THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 1877. ONE of the most important events that has happened to the American farmer and stock grower, is the successfuil introanetion of American dead beef into the English market. Heretofore it has been looked upon as experimental, and not likely to result in a matter of much importance to either coun try. The experiments, however, having met with satisfactory results, has rapidly increased into a business, and is assuming such proportions as to awaken an intense interest throughout England. Fully a thoua sand tons of American beef and mutton are landed every week in the several seaboard 1owns of the British Isles-not tainted or r:oughily dressed carcasses, but meat as sweet and .feesh,. and ins as flue shape,. as can be tound in the best markets of our own, cilies. The importations of fresh beef into Eng land during the month of March last was 60,120 cwt., nearly six times the amount im ported during March, 1876. ...

SIscELLA EO U U S. THE DICTIONARY AS AN IN.`RUCTOR, We notice as a matter well worth men tioning that at the recent great publishers' trade sale in New York. the books that :ere most in demand and brought the best prices, were Webster's dictionarnes, from the fiamous quarto, to the neat .and and handy pocket edition. This f.act is a good indication of the almost universal 1)opulari ty of these books, and of the growing pub lic demand for them. It indicates also a ftct of far greater importance, and that is the interest the people are taking in the study of their own language,. This is en couraging, as there is no branch of educa tiot that is now and has been so much neg leted as the common branches of spelling and defiuin.y, It is often astonishingl ahd grievious to see how grossly ignorant are children and youth, and even men and wo men, of the orthography, promn nciation and meaning of the ordinary' words and phrases.
