A HEALTHY POLITICAL CONVENTION. Dr. True, of Oxford county, Me., was once on a visit into Aroostook county, and lie chanced to be present at a political convention. The doctor was known as one of the best agriculturists in the State, and his contributions to the agricultural papers, on all sorts of common-sense and scientific matters appertain- ing to the farming interests, had been for years widely read and discussed. On the present occasion the doctor occupied a seat on the platform, for the purpose of reporting the proceedings of the convention for pub- lication in his own country paper. By and by a committee was appointed to prepare and present a series of appropriate resolutions, and as soon as said committee had retired to attend to their duty, a hard-fisted old farmer arose and addressed the chair Mr. President! "Mr. Sweet. The meeting will listen to Mr. Sweet. "Mr. President, I ain't a goin' ter say noth'n only to ask, while th' kermittee's aout, why Doctor True' <5an t tell us sunth'n 'baout the Airly Rose pertaters." Aye—the idea was a good one, and Doctor True Doctor True!" was sounded upon all hands. ? What could the good, genial doctor do but comply ? So he arose and stepped forward, and entered at once upon a grand, lucid and practical discourse on the subject of potato culture. The speaker was zealous and animated, and his hearers were deeply interested -so interested that the committee on resolutions re- entered without being heeded, and even the committee became interested, and sat quietly down to listen. When Dr. True had concluded his remarks, it was !me to adjourn; and the convention arose without calling upon its committee to report the resolutions— an oversight, perhaps, but evidently no great loss to the members of the convention or to the country.—New Ledgw. i'
