We have received sovcral communicntions on the subject of Land Monopoly, aod we Imvfi had repented npplications from subscrihers who regard tho projects of this party favorably, lo publish somethiug on the subject by which the reader could get an accurate view of the Lnnd Reform sought for by ihcm. For the&e reasons we shall miike room next weck for an art iele from the N. Y. Tribune by H. Greely, addressed to the N. Y. Convention. It is wriüen with ability, and is woll worth ronding and consideraron. We are not now prepared lo express any opinión on the principies it advocates.CF Tho Europcnn rcco will uhimalcly fill the wholeearth.

After delibérate and frec discussion on the best apparent mode of precedure, a constitution was adopted and officers for the ensuing year elected. Business meeting to be held semi-monthly and county quarterly. It is hoped that auxiliary societies will be formed in various places in the County to extend our operations and strengthen our influence in this eflbrt on behalf of the suilcring and oppressed portion of mankind who are held in bondage for no crime, save that they are guilty uofa skin not colored like our own." While we leave to our Fathers and brethren in the Republic, the exciting arena of polilical action, wc cannot but fcel that woman is nppropriately employed in aiding the cause ofhumanity, though so gently as to be almost imperceptible tothe multitude, yet as eflectual as the little silent riíls are in forming the "mighty torrent which eventually shall proudly bear in its progresa the riglitful boon of Freedom TO ALL."

We intended to publish most of it, but cannot, becauso part"f it is illegible.
