Ships, A child, I played beside the sea. Across the far horizon line: Ships came and went the whole day long, And went and eame—but none were mine. A girl, I sat upon the shore," And dreamed sweet dreams of what might be When out of tropic latitudes My laden ship should como to me. A woman, still unsatisfied, I clinicd the cliffs and gazed afar My wishes freighted every ship That sailed across the harbor bar. Near by, upon the rugged roclss, A bright-faced workman toiled and sang, And loudly, over wave and beach, FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.

THE TRANSCRIPT OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE COUKTT. A. A. UAUWOOI), Editor & Proprietor. -AtJSTUT, KINN- TIItTRSDAY MORNING, Al'ML 30,1874. TIM Veto the Coming Bill. When Congress met last December, wc cxpremd the hope that it would at once proceed to*the adjustment of tho national currency. The cxf inordinary and disna irAnilaiiures of so many old and appar­ ently sound banking houses, not only in­ terrupted the business of the couutry. but eatne very near destroying all confidence in the reliability of moneyed institutions. We thought then that if banking facilities urcre increased as they might bo, by the issue of additional U. S. Bonds, to form the requisite security, that capitalists would put their Money into circulation, father than hoard it orloan it to banks, on short time, and at low rates thns putting the currency of the country to legitimate use. Of the issue of bonds made some time ago, it is well known that the west­ ern states had not their full share, aud that the easte...

THE TRANSCRIPT OFFICIAL PAPEB OF THE COUHTY. A, A. H.VUWOOD, Editor & Proprietor. -Austin, mim.— THFRSDAY MORNINO, MAY 7, 1874. The Relations or Tiling*. It was established at the begiuing, that there should be a diversity of human pursuits. In primitive times there were —as at present—learned men, those ohurgeil with the administration of gov­ ernment, :ii*{ the care of the church,—til his of the soil, keepers of herds iindtlocks, hewers of wood etc. The wants of man having im-reused in number, as civili z.'ition has advanced, there is now a much more extended classification of employ­ ments than was made in the early history of the race. The successful development of the various industries, of art and sci. race, necessitates this. Government is of itself a distinct science, and although in this country the people arc the sole repos­ itory ot power, they delegate that power and arc themselves controlled by the au­ thority with which they have invested tltcir representatives.
