8 THE FOURTH UNITARIAN. Dedicatory Services Yesterday Forenoon and Evening. Several Distinguished Clergymen Parti cipate in tho Exercises. Eloquent Sermon by tlio Uov. H. 1Y« Bil lows, of Now York. Tho dedicatory services of tho now Fourth Unitarian Church building, ooruor of Thirteenth etroot and Prairio avonuo, occurred yesterday forenoon, tho small odlflco being filled. Upon the platform woro tho Revs. F. L. Ilosmor, R. N. Bellows,.R. Laird Collier, 11. W. Bellows, 0. W. Wondto, and Robert Collyor. An introductory prayer was offered by tho Rev. F. 8. Ilosmor, after which tho Rev. R. N. Bellows read from tho Psalms. A hymn was sung, and tho following dedication was road by tho pastor and congregation: Wo dedicate this house to tho worship of tho ono truo God, our heavenly Father, who is above all, and through all, nod In us nil. Wo dedicate It to a rational and liberal religion, to sincere prayer, to pure worship, to n freo nud joyous piety, without formalism, superstition, or hypocrisy. Wo dedicate this house to free and earnest thought— too fearless study of tho truth, to an ovor-lncmslng Insight, to an ovor-advauclng knowledge. lt _ We dedicate it to tho culture of tho soul—to all that purifies and strengthens tho spirit In man, and in creases his faith la tho possibilities of life, both boro and hereafter, _ . . We reverently ask (ho blessing of God upon this work of our hands; remembering that "except tho Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build It." The Rov. Laird Collier offered prayer, after which a chant was sung. THE REV. H. W. BELLOWS then preached his sermon, his text being taken from Matthew xi. 6. Tho speaker commenced his discourse by pointing out tho advantages of our civilization, and tho general material pros perity everywhere observable. It redounded to our glory that such a condition of things should prevail. It was fortunate that prosperity some times made a whole nation hopeful of hfimau perfectibility. It was certain that wo woro espe cially favored; certain that poor men woro tiovor so fow as now ; certain that civilization novor advanced at such a pace as now. Peculiar as our good fortune was wo woro still * sharers in that common humanity whoso history was already written. Wo woro mon, and this nos a mbro Important fact than that wo woro Americans. In discuss ing European circumstances, feudalism, and tho liko, wo could soo that wo had not escaped tho conditions of tho raco. Tho world was moro than 6,000 years old. This continent had boon occupied by peoples in tho romoto possessed an architecture similar to our own. If wo look at tho old world, as In China, wo soo that the theory of an inevitable tendency to pro gress was not fixed. Tho Asiatic nationsuad fallen to decay. Spain to-day, as compared with Bp&in of Ferdinand and Isabella, was also in do cay. Greece, in tho days of Thomistoclos, shin ing with arts, vocal with eloquence, where beau tiful minds dwelt in beautiful bodies, [whore Socrates taught in a strain .that only revelation could mako appear loss than divine—what was there to throatou that bats and owls and dirty brigands clad in sheep skins would haunt her valleys aud mountains ? Romo, 'hor language dead, her power a priest-craft, her glories gone, and nor namo a romance, aided in confirming the thought that continuance was not guaranteed by moro prosperity. God valued goodness too much to allow wealth, art, science, to socaro permanence without individual good ness. Ho would not permit a nation rich m art end beauty to imperil human nature by perma nence In wanton and selfish ways, when luxury oto its way into society all tho arts and sciences, churches nud cathedrals would not save a nation from decline. Qrooco was struck with hopeless death in tho zenith of hor fame for art and religion. It was the pride of philosophy, tho hypocrisy of religion, that killed nor! Franco had fallen, liko Lucifer from heaven, with the torch of science in ono hand, and tho coronot of art on hor brow. Bho hod fallen, because she had made pleasure her life. Bho adored saints only as pictures in the Louvre. Holiness had come to lio in whito eyes of pointed madonnas. Marriage was a thing that only tho very rich and very poor could indulge iu. Illo fitimato births prevailed among tho population. F private virtue and self-respect, fear of God, sonso of duty decay iu family life, tho speaker did not care how much educa tion was going on, there was a worm in tho root, a canker in tho bud, that threatened destruction. Tho indecency of tho Times was an indication of tho corruption of society. Some of tho worst poisoners of social lifo wore pat torus of decorum,—models of propriety. The most dangerous persons in this community—cer tainly in tho speaker's—woro loaders of fashion, priests and priestesses of heathen world-worship, gorgeously faithful to propriety. The local au thorities and demagogues gilded vice, made parks, and boulevards, and buildings, and docks, and made everybody forgot that public virtue was dying, and private virtue was dying with it. Aud, with all tho olattor of tho press, thoro was no help for it but personal princi ple and religious oonviotion. . It was easier to build a pyramid than find a King worthy of it. It was easier to obongo Chi cago from dust to marblo than change ono gen eration of its citizens. Wo could not toach chil dren virtue without virtuous parents, or toach religion without religious teachers. Society rested to-day on moro prudence and mutual concession. Christianity was to-day a moro ideal; was by common consent regarded as im practicable. Statesmen and philosophers ban ished it in a moro compromise. The Gospel, whilo it addressed tho heroic iu humanity, novor advanced a fact. Tho moral sovereign would sot acknowledge for his kingdom ono in which avarice, tho lovo of self, predominated. Tho Kingdom of God was always at hard to any who would seize it by violence. Liko that.liberty which every slave could soizo from his owner, it could only bo obtained by violence, and not ono in a thousand generations cared to snatch it. The Church was oroctod tb-dny as a sentry-box, against tho lukewarm followers of Christ, against bad citizens, slaves of appetites, cormo rants of wealth who woro too cowardly to take tho Kingdom of God by violence. The Kingdom of heaven was at band, but unless wo woro ready to enter it sword In hand liko a soldier, pro p&TuU to do violence to tho prejudices of our selves and onr neighbors, wo might as well givo up all idea of getting in. TUB I’ASTOH then made a statement: Throe years and a half ago ho was called to start a now church in this district. He came with misgivings, but ho had tho assurance of tho sympathy and good-will of the congregation. On tho first Sunday ho had a congregation of thirty persons, with ono member. In six months tho church was self supporting. Tho land had cost $12,000, and tho church had cost $23,000. Of this $85,000, about $17,000 had already boon paid, and now about SIB,OOO bad to be raised. There was oue thing to bo settled to-day. Did they wish to bo bur dened week after week with the weight of a debt, or would they clear off that debt now and forever. LEV. UODEIIT COLLYEH was then presented. Ho said ho did not know anything more appropriate to say than that tho Slea made by Mr. Wondto to bo roliovod from ebt should bo mot with an outburst of gener osity which would soud him homo with a light heart, bettor fortified to carry on tho work which he had assumed, Mr. Wondto had oomo hore an entire stranger about throo years ago, an untried straugor. Tho speaker's dear brother Laird had soon him. and foil in lovo with him at once, which showed his perception. Tho speaker did tho same thing. When Brother Laird had inquired whether ho was not tho man thoy wanted, ho would have replied, had he been in Han Francisco, " You hot!" [Laughter.] As It was. ho agreed with him. After some further explanatory remarks, the pastor explained tho system of collection ' which would no assumed on tho present occa sion. Tho Bov. B. Laird Collior then mado a few remarks ns complimentary to Mr. Wondto as Mr. Collyer's remarks had boon. 'iho doxology was song, and then the benedic tion was pronounced. EVENING SERVICES. Tho services in tho evening were fully as in teresting as those in tho morning, consisting of an organ voluntary: an invocation by tho Bov. B. N.Bellows ; reading of sorlpturo by the Bov. F. L. Hosmor ; singing of the hymn, “ Whore Ancient Forests Widely Spread," by tho congre gation ; consecration of tho Church to tho ser vice of God, by pastor and congregation; prayer of consecration, by tho Bov. Bobort Colly-r; an them ; sermon by tho Bov. James Freeman Clarke, D. D.; chant; hymn, (< Lord, Dismiss us with Thy Blessing,” sung by tho congregation ; benediction. Tho services were attended by a large number of people. Louisiana Troubles* Baton Bodoe, La., April 27.—A detachment Of 126 of the Metropolitan Folico. with Wiuuhea tor rifles and onq plooo of artillery, arrived hero last evening from New Orleans, and loft this morning for Port Vincent, Livingston Parish, for the purpose of installing appointees of Kellogg. They wore mot at Harold's Perry, Amilo River, at noon to-day by a committee of throo persons representing the Port Vincent party, ami it is presumed that matters will bo adjusted without bloodshed. THE FARM AND GARDEN. Tlio Potato* ami tho Conditions that iTliist Ho Supplied In Order to Its Successful Oulturc-oTUluirs that TVo JLonvo Undone that Wo Ought to l>o* and Some 'Pilings that Wo Should Not Do—Tho Castor-Oil Ucnn a Peren nial and an Annual—Tho Ilttiiitluy> Out of Varieties* From Our Agricultural Correspondent, Ouampaiok, 111., April 20, 1873. As a general thing tho importance of THE TOTATO CROP la lost sight of on tho farm, and is loft to those cultivators who mako it a specialty. This is, to a certain degree, wrong, for tho potato is a profitable crop when put in its proper place in tho rotation. Then, aside from the markets, tho potato has a value for tho feeding of stock,— not undor all conditions, it is truo, but uudor many circumstances, and it is our duty to study aud consider those. Wo must novor lose sight of tho fact that tho weather is beyond our control, and, whilo wo cannot order tho woathor, wo may accommodate ourselves to its changing moods. Wo need not stop to pray for rain, for that is a matter thai does not pertain to prayer; wo need not ask for Us suspension, for no amount of praying will change tho elements, for they aro controlled by fixed laws; but wo may pray for .knowledge how best to ooufonn ourselves to tho conditions that God has given us. God is not going to soud its baked loaves, broiled fish, and roast beef, when wo ask Him to givo ns this day our daily broad ; but wo aro to obtain those from tho moans that aro presented to our bauds. Our King is Commerce, and wo worship in groups. Wo aro bent on money-getting ; wo must turn our labor to cash before wo look after our own comforts or our boat interests. Wo grow wheat, and sell it to tho shippers, aud then buy our flout' from tho dealer. Wo grow corn, and sell it for 20 cents a bushel, or loss than half a cent a pound, and buy meal at a cent a pound. Wo send to Minnesota andMlchlgaa forpotatoos, or, what la worse, often do without them. Wo send to tho market-gardener lor onions, and buy canned fruit from Baltimore. Wo sell beef and pork on foot, and depend on tho Chicago packers for corned beef and bams. And then wo raise a hue and ory against railroads and middle men ; and yot no class of men employ those, more unbusinesslike, than the farmers. Lot us, then, show a little more wisdom, and first produce all tho products that wo need for tho form that aro consistent with our soil aud cli mate, and thon spend the remainder of our ef forts in growing something for the market. Tho old story about hog and hominy was no myth, but ono based on solid truth; hut tho hominy-mill has given placo to tho potato-patch and every family that has a supply of good pota toes abandon tho use of hominy. If you go on a woU-cultivatod and woll-managod farm, you will find a well carod-for field of potatoes; if at tho North, it will be tho Irish potato, and, if at tho South, tho sweet potato. In short, tho potato is tho index of good farming and of thrift. Tho farmer who knows whore to placo his field of potatoes knows that there is a fitness of things, aud gives to oach crop its proper position in tho rotation. WHERE TO PLANT is tho first question to bo considered. And hero is whore most farmers make tho great mistake in regard to this crop. Wo must not forget that all plants havo a natural homo ; that is, thoro aro certain conditions that make up tho measure of success. As an instance, tho castor-bean is a perennial ia tho iropios, and I have seen sections of thoso bean-stalks 0 inches in diameter,—a groat, hollow stem for a bean-plant; but, with us, it is an annua), grow ing aud ripening its seeds as far north oa 40 de grees of latitude. Now, while wo may grow caetor-boans for local nee, wo cannot compote in tho markote of the world with those grown in a tropical or semi-tropical climate. Hero wo must make annual plantings, and force tho plant by high culture, and thou, in cool seasons, it will fail of maturing; while, at tho South, it is at homo, delighting in a higu and is so deeply-rooted that no long-continued drouth will seriously affect it. Tho potato plant is somewhat analogous, only that it is a native of a mountain-elevation, wboro tho summer hoot does not roach it. and whore the winter-snow pro tects the roots from frost; la short, a cool, damp atmosphere, saturated by the molting snows, and never subloot to drouth or oxcoss of mois ture. A high latitude, whore tho summer is short, tho air impregnated with continued mois ture, on absence of drouth, and a deep, rich soff , filled with humue, will supply tho conditions that tho volleys that lie deep la the snowy range present to it. That is the natural homo of the Sotato, and whence shall come tho largo supplies iat commerce demands. Thus Minnesota among her lakes, Northern Wisconsin, Michi gan, and along tho whole lino of lakes, is a climate suited to this crop; and tho fanner has but to soloot the soil, and loaru from experi ence in regard to tho time of planting. But hero, In Control Illinois, in Missouri. lowa, Kansas, and othor points not well adopted to tho sweet-potato, wo need this vegetable tabor, and mast have it; and tho question is, Shall wo bring it from a more congenial climate, or shall wo not see if there are not tho conditions hero that may warrant us in tho planting? SVo may not expect to essentially change its habits. \Vo ought not to suppose that it can bo brought to endure our long, hot summers; nor will it resist tho frost of our winters, in tho open ground. But, as It will grow in a low tempera ture, and thrive in cloudy, cool, backward spring weather, wo may plant it as soon as frost is out of the ground, ana havo tho crop matured before the long, hot days of summer. If wo plant early we must plant shallow, or tho seed will rot in the ground; and, if wo plant shallow, tho plants, when above ground, will bo liable to be lulled by frost. But wo will look a little further, and see how this shallow planting may bo managed, aud this brings us back to the planting, and tho MOST SUITABLE LAND. I have said that tho soil should bo rich, deep, and well supplied with humus, or, in plain English, the partially decayed roots of plants; and this is best supplied by tho roots of tho grasses and clover; and wo find that meadow or gesture, tho second crop after hroak ig. is tho best for tho potato; and that tho old land is only admissible when a top-dressing .of manure Is added after tho planting. Wo have now selected our land, and tho next thing in order is to plow it and to plant tho crop. There is a subsoil plow, that is attached to the under side of any common plow. 1 think it is called tho Kansas suhsoilor. and made at Fnlrbury, or at least was -made tuoro, and costs about $6. This subsoil-plow is some 4 Inches below the bottom of the old land-plow. Wo now mark out two lauds, and lum a furrow around each. Tho old land-plow* is so gauged that it turns a shallow furrow of I}£ to 2 inches deep, while tho subsoil-lifter stirs tho soil 4 inches deeper, making a furrow 6 inches deep,— nuito sufficient to satisfy the ambition of any farmer. , t , In tho second furrow, wo drop tho single oyesj of tho potato, If Early Boso or Noslmunock, at; tho distance of 8 Inches ; if Ponoh-Blow, Poor loss, or larger, lato-growlug varieties, 10 to 12 Inches is tho bolter distance ; but, in all canes, out tbo potato to single oyos. Tho team follows tho droppor, and turns tho shallow furrow oqj tho seod, while tho subsoll-attaohmont stirs and, loohodb the soil 4 inches bolow. This makes a« nlooly-proparod sood-bod, and, at the same tlmo,u. acta as a drain for any excess of raluf&U. Aft or £ the teem has covered tho two rows on tho flrstf land, tho'plowman turns throo other furrowsJ wldlo tho droppor is planting the i two rows of tho second land. t The droppor then returns to tho first land, which ■ is mado ready for him, and tho second land loi treated as tho first; and thus tho plowman fol lows tho dropper from land to land, and neither • interferes, to auy groat extent, with tho othor. Two acres a day is a fair average day’s work for ouo team, a driver, and one man for droppor. CULTIVATION. Nothing moro is douo until tbo plants begin to prick through tho soil, when tho first crop of weeds will present themselves also. Wo now take a two-horso harrow,—by tho way, tho old doublo Scotch-harrow is tho best,—and tho whole hold is thoroughly pul verized, and iho outiro crop of woods destroyed. Tho roller is to follow where tho eurfaoo will bo smooth and so finely commin uted that tho air and the heat can easily pene trate it, and tbo plant will soon be above tho surface, and again followed with tho woods that have a wonderful nortinaoltv in springing up at THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: MONDAY, APRIL 28, 1873. this early season. The riding cultivator is tho next implement brought into requisition, and tho shovels aro so arranged that tho earth is tlirown on to tho row of plants, covering them wholly or partially. This is the beginning of tho hilling, ond has covered tho several crops of woods that had sprung up along tho rows. Not only this, but tho tops aro secured from tho oarly frosts. A few days more, and tho plants aro again above ? round, while tho third crop of woods is ready or tho second killing, which Is performed as the first 5 and, with tho destruction of tho third crop of woods, tho killing is nearly completed, and tho further oulturo la pursued in tho usual man ner. until the plants are in full bloom. After that period, tho stirring of tho soil between tho rows may no continued; but tho hills, or rathor drills, should not bo disturbed with tlio plow or cultivator. After tho plants are in bloom, tho tubers make a rapid growth, in oaso tho condi tions aro favorable, and this Is the critical period of tho plant, ana tho soil must bo kept in tho bet possible condition, and tho woods must bo kept out of tho hills by nulling them with a sharp boo, or pulling by hand. The root growth is mako in about two wooks. and, if tho oonaUlons aro unfavorable tho crop will bo correspondingly stinted. Should a drouth sot In at tho period of bloom ing. a mulching of straw will ho found useful. Whilo wo cannot compote with tho places named above in supplying the late summer, autumn,, and winter markets, yot wo may find it profitable’ to grow a crop FOB THE EARLY MARKET, and ship them to all points north of us. But wo must hoar in mind that tho planting must bo oarly, and tho oulturo continued. There must bo no neglect of tho crop, from tho planting to tho harvesting for market. If old land is used, tho top-drossing of manure must bo applied after tho seed is planted, so that the harrowing will pulverize it, and distribute it ovonly over tho surface. It wiU bo soon that tho planting anil cultivat ing of tho potato-crop by tho plan thus laid down is much moro economical than any other process ordinarily pur sued, ana thon . tho orop is measurably assured, both in oarlinoss and quantity. No farmer, oven in moderate circumstances, should Slant less than ono aero of potatoes annually, so iat, In caso of a short crop, bo may havo an abundant supply for his family, and, in most seasons, a fow bushels to sell, or to food to his cows and pigs. TUE HUNNIKO OUT OP VARIETIES is a popular idea, and generally conceded, and upon this is based the change of seed from one district to another. Mr. Knight, an eminent English botanist, and late President of the Lon don Horticultural Society, claimed that each fruit-treo remained vigorous during a certain period; and that no called the life or period of tho variety, when propagated by cuttings or grafts j but this idea has boon combated hy our irdo-plontera and orchardists, and it is found that thoro aro peri ods of weakness of varieties, from which they most generally recover. The Noshonnook po tato was for a long time tho loading early potato of tho country, but, from some cause, it gave out in most localities, and notv It is claimed that tho Early Rose already shows signs of weakness, and now varieties aro offered on tho market. This is probably rather premature, and we may rather look to a change of seed with distant locations than venture too confidently on now varieties. Bubal. NEW MEXICO. Tho Pllnornl "Wealth oC tlio South* western Portion of tho Territory* Bn,vnn Crrv, March 80,1873. To the Editor of The Chicago Tnhunc* Sm: Recent discoveries and developments afford grounds for tho report that this is ono of tho most valuable mineral regions known In our country. Gold, silver, copper, iron, and load ores abound in seemingly oxhoustloss quantities, and of unusually high grades. SILVER CITY, tho county coat of Grant County, is about 100 miles west of the Rio Grande, and 76 miles north of tho Mexican Republic, It is a town of 1,000 to 1,200 inhabitants, mostly Americans. Tho buildings are principally of brick, some of which ore quite pretentious structures, aud would bo creditable to far larger cities in the States. Tho fine character of the improvements evidences tho faith tho people havo in tho richness and permanency of the mines, for to them the city looks for its future prosperity.. Tho town is ad mirably located on a broad with a small stream running through it, affording splen did sites for tho several mills and furnaces, now in Operation and in proocoss of erection. Four mills aro now successfully reducing ore by amalgamation; two others will be completed soon. Small smelt ing-works are already in operation, with othor very extensive ones soon to bo added to the list. Among tho institutions of Silver Oity may bo enumerated six stores, carrying largo stocks of goods; two hotels ; ono bank ; and a number of saloons, blacksmith, carpenter, tailor, and shoe shops. PRICES. Brick of lino quality aro furnished at sl2 per thousand, and lumber at $55 to SBO per m. feet. Supplies cost about as follows; viz: Wood, $2.50 per cord ; flour, $7 per sack of 100 lbs . sugar, 85c per lb ; coffee, 40o; bacon, 85c to 40o; tea, $2 ; butter, 750 to $1; eggs, 600 to 750 per doz ; calicoes, 200 to 250 per yard; muslin, 250 to 850. Clothing is cheap. Mexican labor com mands $1.50 to $2 per day ; American labor, $8 to $4 | mechanics ami skilled labor, from $5 to $6. There is demand for more skilled hands in the different departments of labor. One groat advantage to the laboring man hero Is the favor able weather, which enables him, If bo desires to do so, to work every day in tho year This country is so far south, and yet of such an altitude, that tho cli mate is perfectly delightful, and constitutes a charm which should not be overlooked by those seeking a homo. Tho atmosphere is dry, pure, and health-giving. Sliver City Is the centre of a section of coun try about 100 miles square, in all ports of which discoveries of motuls, FBOM GOLD DOWN TO IKON, have boon made. It lies in tho • Sierra Madre range,—tho same in which the old mines of Mex ico exist, ana from which that nation has derived her millions of treasure in tho ages past, and which are still yielding almost fabulous amounts, although worked in a very crude and unsystem atic manner. Tho silver mines of this locality aro said, by those who have visited both, to bo almost exactly of tho samo general oharaoter, equally rich and extensive, and, when folly de veloped by skilled American labor and improved machinery, will undoubtedly produce much greater proportionate results. Tho ore from tho various mines differs materially in oharaoter, and requires different processes for its reduc tion. A groat deal can bo only worked by smelting, wltilo some of it can bo easily separated by crushing and amalgamation. Bomo of tho mines aro believed to bo huge deposits, while others show true fissure-veins. The grade of much of the ore is very high, some yielding os high os $4,000 to tho ton, and none is worked that does not run as high os S6O or $76 per ton. Thou there aro millions upon millions of low grade ore, which will run from S2O to S6O to tho ton. A few miles to tho north aro tho FAMOUS PINOS ALTOS PLACERS, ‘ which aro rich in gold, but lacit water for work* ing; there aro also rich and woll-doflnod true fls suro-voms of both gold and silver, which aro more or loss worked, some to tho aoptlT of 100 foot. Pinos Altos is a remarkably hob district, and will eventually give employment to thou* Bauds of people. LONE MOUNTAIN DISTRICT Is about 0 miles oast of this place, and con tains many mines of groat richness, nearly all tho ore from which shows puro hom-sllvor. Tho disadvantage uudor which this place is laboring is tho Irek of milling facilities, or means of re ducing tho oro. About 15 miles northeast of Silver City is tho RENOWNED SANTO RITE COPPER-MINE, which has boon worked for many yoars, yielding oro so rich in copper and gold as to moko it prof itable to pock it on mules to tho coast, —a dis tance of 1,000 miles,—thonoo ship to Europe for separation. Tho cheaper transportation which will be furnished upon tho completion of the Texas Pacific Hallway will mako this mine ouo of groat value. lu tho samo vicinity are tho lIANOVEU AND BAN JOSE COPPER-MINES, and also a an iron-mountain, from wldoli oro has been taken sufficiently puro to bo hammered out without smelting. To tho westward aro tho UUUUO MOUNTAINS, which aro almost a muss of oro,— gold, silver, and copper all being found there. RALSTON, just west of those mountains, Is another placo whore millions of tons of rich silvor-oro exists, but caimot at present bo obtained for lack of wood and water. In time, a road will be built from tlioao mines to tho 011 a River, a distance of 26 miles, ovor which tho ore will bo transported to tho splendid water-powers on this river, whero it may bo profitably worked. AMONG OTHEn DISCOVERIES made in this vicinity may bo enumerated kaolin, flro-olay, end a vein of very fine wblto marble. Good Indications of coal exist, and tho early dis covery of this material is confidently expected. There is a splendid future in store for this sec tion of country, which will bo hastened by tho construction of tho TEXAS PACIFIC RAILWAY, which is now being rapidly built. It is expected tho oars will roach hero in about two years, and then tho greatest drawback to tho prosperity of tills region will bo removed/ viz: expensive and slow transportation. Tho natural wealth of this country is enor mous. Hero aro MOUNTAINS OP PRECIOUS METALS. enough to build an empire, only waiting tho moans of development. Tho present supply of mills and rodaotlon-works Is not equal to ono tonth of the demand. Lot capitalists mako a note of this. * Settlement in this country has boon greatly re tarded by tho . . HOSTILITY Off THE INDIANS J but Coobiso, tho groat Chief of tbo Apaches, having mode peace, aud his people having gone on their reservations in Arizona, it is believed there will bo little further difficulty of tbo kind, although it Is still doomed advisable to travel In compony, and armed, to in sure freedom from molestation by roving out laws whom tho Chiefs may not be able to con trol. Tho material is on tbo way for tho establish ment of , _. A NEWSPAPER at Silver City, under tho charge of 0. L, Scott. It is to wear the significant title of tho Thun dercr. THE SILVER CITY LYCEUM has a largo membership, and is a success. They have raised about SI,OOO towards a fund for tho erection of a hall and reading-room. W, CORN. Experiments at the Illinois Industrial University. Experiments were made with* thirly-flvo varie ties of corn, kindly furnished by J. B. Pliinuoy, Esq., of Champaign County,—a gentleman who has given this subject a groat deal of attention, aud has made experiments with most of the loading voriotios. Tho ground upon which tho com was planted has boon In cultivation about twenty years, with out manure. and 1b of good quality, though a little variable in its different parts. It was plant ed fa com in 1871, It was plowed about six inches deep, on the 25th of April, 1872, and. on tho loth of May, rolled and marked four by four foot. It was planted by hand, four Sralns to tho hill, and covered with the hoe. no-oighth of on aero of each variety,—five rows, sixteen rods long,—wore planted, except of tho Blaok Purple, of whioh there was hut one row. or one fortieth of an acre. The com was harrowed, May 25, with Bake well’s com-harrow, oast and west; May 80, with tho same implement, north aud south ; Juno 12. it was plowed with a double-shovel plow, east aud west; Juno 20, with tho sumo plow, north and south; July 6, oast and west; and July 10, north and south. Tho following Is a list of tho varieties planted, with remarks by Mr. Phinuoy aud others: I—FLINT. VARIETIES, Not desirable for oar Western markets. 1.

Reports to tho HlaHiachiwotlN Loglsta* cure—Grand Railroad Consolidation ficliomoN—State Control of tUoTuuuol Proposed* Soeton M pril 23) Diepnteh to the Xew ForJt Tribune, Tho lloosao Tunnel Railroad Committee ren dered two reports to-day. Tho report of tho ma jority provides for consolidating tho Fitchburg, tho Vermont <fc Massachusetts, tho Boston % Lowell, and tho Troy & Boston Railroads (or tho last tliroo, if the Fitchburg refuses) into one corporation by tho name of tho Boston & North western Railroad Company. Tho bill for consolidation Is a long one, and makes all tho necessary stipulations for compen sation. If tho corporations vote to form tho now company, and cannot agreo upon tho terms, then tho Supremo Court Is to appoint tkroo Commissioners for that purpose. Tho lloosao Tunnel aud its approaches, including so much of tho railroad on oaoh sldo of tho tunnel as shall, within two months from tho passage of (Ids act. ho determined by tho Governor and Council to bo “ necessary and convenient ap proaches" to tho tunnel, aro to remain in com mon for tho public benefit in tho transfer of passengers and freight from ono side of tho lloosao Mountain to tho other, and the title and ownership are to remain in tho Commonwealth. Tho State, by tho Governor and Council, or In auy manner proscribed by tho Legislature, may control and regulate tho uso of tho tuanol and approaches and tho pas sage of trains through and ovor tho samo, and if at any time any corporation operating tho tunnel or the approaches thereto falls to observe tbo rules and regulations so es tablished, the Commonwealth may by duo process in tho Supremo Judicial Court prevent the uso of tho tnnnolandtho approaches thereto, and in such ovout tho Commonwealth shall pro vide other moans for tho operation of tho tunnel and Us approaches. Tho Boston & Northwestern Railroad Com pany shall operate tho tunnel and its approaches, but all railroad corporations connecting there with, or with tho Boston & Northwestern Rail road, shall possess tho right of Bonding' their cars and passengers and freight tlirough tho tunnel upon oqual terras and with equal fa cility. For tho uso of tho tunnel the Common wealth shall bo entitled to receive not exceeding 11 per cent of tbo amount charged for transportation by tho consolidated company. If tho Troy & Boston, ond tho Boston & Lowell Roads refuse to to bo consol idated, tho now compony may bo formed by tho other corporations voting to unite. Should tho Fitchburg Road decline to como into tho arrange ment, ami a consolidated corporation bo formed, tho latter is required to establish terminal facili ties at or near tide-water before tho Ist day of May, 1877, and is required to oxtond its railroad from tho present terminus of tho Vermont & Massachusetts Rood in Fitchburg to tho depot at or near tide-water. For those purposoo it may, within two years, toko and hold ana uso so much of tbo road property and franchises of the Fitch burg Railroad Company as may bo necessary and convenient therefor, subject to the laws relating to tho taking of land by railroad corporations and tbo compensation to bo mode therefor, or it may lease or hire tho Fitchburg Railroad, sub ject to all tho laws relating to the leasing of rail roads. The consolidated corporation may purchaaoor loqbo any railroad or railroads now chartered or built between the intersection of the Troy & Greenfield llailroad with the State lino of Massa chusetts and Lake Ontario or Lewiston on tho Niagara River, or on the route thereto, and may operate and maintain tho same, and may locate and construct such tracks in tho towns of Bel mont, Cambridge, and Arlington os maybe nec essary to connect tbo Fitchburg Railroad and its Watertown branch with tho Lexington & Arling ton Railroad, for tho purpose of making the Hyetio River terminal faculties accessible to tbo lino hereby authorized. Tho Board of Directors Is to consist of thirteen S arsons, three of whom shall bo appointed by 10 Governor and Counoil. Tho now corpora tion can make all tho leases of other roads that may bo requisite for tbo development of Its busi ness. If the Commonwealth chooses it may any time, after six months’ notico in writing of its intentions so to do, tako possession of the road, franchise property, rights, and privileges of tho said consolidated corporation. Tho minority of tbo Committee, aonslsting of four members, say that tho tunnel will be com- Kd during tho current year, and wIU cost the , including interest, abont $12,000,000. They state that tbo tunnel itself must bo worked and managed for all parties using It by one head. It foUows that tbo Commonwealth should own or control one lino of road between Boston and tho West, at tho samo time giving all parties equal advantages in tho tunnel. The method recommended by the minority is to form a corporation for tho management of the Troy & Greenfield Railroad and Hoosao Tunnel, com posed of five Trustees, appointed by tho Gover nor and Council, each to hold office for. five years, and one of whom shall bo appointed annually. To these five. State Trustees are to bo oddodf'not exceeding throe, one by each of tbo roUroad corporations whoso property may bo acquired or managed under the terms of tbo act. instead of directly purchasing tho railroads constituting tho direct lino, provision is made for leaning thoßO railroads by tho now corpor ation upon tonus which are fair and equitable for all parties. Tho minority bill places tbo Hoosao Tunnel, when completed, and the Troy & Greenfield Railroad, on or before tbo Ist day of July next, in tbo hands of five Trustees, appointed by the Governor and Council. Those Trustees ore to havo tbo solo direction of the tunnel and Troy & Greenfield Railroad, and are authorized to re locate, whore necessary, tho tracks of tho Troy «k Greenfield Road. Five million dollars are ap propriated for carrying out tho provisions of the act, tho property of tho Commonwealth in tho railroad and tonnol boing pledged to the re demption of tho scrip. Tho Trustees are ompoworod to loose in per petuity the franchise and property, and to maintain, improve, and operate the rail road with its branches of tho Vermont & Massachusetts Railroad Company, also those of tbo Fitchburg Railroad Company, and like wise to lease tho franchise and property of tho Troy & Boston Railroad, and to maintain, im prove, and operate it. In tho cose of those roads 25 per cent of the gross earnings Is sot apart for the payment of rents. Tho Trustees are further authorized to leaso any railroad king in tbo tunnel route be tween Boston ond Lake Ontario. In tbo carriage of through passengers and merchandise the rates of transportation shall bo estimated pro rata per mile, and tbo Hoosao Tunnel shall bo estimated at such length In miles, not exceeding fifty, as shall seem equitable to the Trustees. Similar provisions aro made for obviating grade crossings in Boston, Charlestown, and else where, as in tbo bill of tbo majority. short 44,0 NEWS PARAGRAPHS.

Annlo Hennessey Says that God and Angels Told Her lu a Vision to Kill tho Children* From tho Xcto York Herald, April 25, Annie Hennessey, who murdered bor children in a (It of religious frenzy, remained at tho BoUovuo Hospital yesterday.
