TEXAS CATTLE. No little excitement has hem created the present winter in this State and Missouri lu relation to Texas cattle. In both States stringent laws have been passed in regard to them, nearly or quit© prohibitory In their character. They are charged with giving to our native stock what is called the “Span ish fever,” a disease that proves fatal in most cases, often sweeping off the entire licrd after it is once attacked. The reports in regard to this disease iu some respects arc so singular that we should pause for more light before coming to conclusions on the subject. It Is said that these cattle, al though In perfect health themselves, so poison the grass and water through which they pass, that the cattle that feed on it will die of the disease, though this native stock do not transmit the disease to the same herd. Statements that come to us from Missouri agree in this, that the Spauish fever is un known iu all parts of the State, except along the line of travel of the Texas or Cherokee cattle, and that stock can ouh be infected by feeding on the grass over which these cattle have passed. These statements from Missouri have alarmed our people, and, without inquiring into the facts lurlhcr than this, they have importuned the LeeUlature to pass a law on the subject, a copy of which was published in the Tribune at the time of its first intro duction. Tbe bill underwent no change, and is now a law. In Will County, out of a herd ol over four hundred head, one-halt of them have died. In a port mortem of these cattle no appear ance ot disease could he detected, other than that they came to the farm in very low con dition, and, not being accustomed to such a severe climate, have, one after another, like IhcFtcoch army in a Russian winter, suc cumbed to the severity of the climate. Mr. Ozburn, of Perry County, says he lost some sixty head from having purcuaaed a small lot of this str ck aud turning them in to gelher. He Insists that they gave the dis ease to tbe native stock, though manifesting no symptom? of disease themselves; nor did he lose any of the Texas stock. This is cer tainly a new condition of things, and if true, most startling in its nature. On the farm adjoining that of the writer, is a large herd of these cattle, wintered on the open prairie without any shelter what ever, and fed on shock com, that is, corn cut up aud shocked in September, and fed to them without husking. These cattle were driven on foot from Texas aud arrived late in November, all of Them low in flesh, but ap parently in good health. They were turned on a blue grass pasture aud fed shock corn up to the middle of December, on a farm dis tant six or seven miles; they were then placed in a small lot and the same feed con tinued, cud a few days since were driven to the adjoining farm. They are yet low in flesh, but appear in good health, aud are ravenous eaters, in fact give ample promise that they will “cat off their own heads,” or, at least, min the expected profits of their owners. This drove averaged about eleven hundred pounds each, heving been selected from a large drove, and cost about $33 per head at this point. Our best stock growers prefer to pay nearly twice as much, pound for pound, of our native cattle to feed for market. They say it is impossible to make beef out of the Texan, under two years. It is said that these cattle can be pur chased In Texas at one cent a pound, live weight, but even at that they arc not profitable slock for the Northern cattle feeders. As there arc several hundred head of these cattle in this county, ot.d as our farmers thus far have not been alarmed on account of the disease, they are likely to have a fair trial on their merits, but with the public opinion against the chance of profit. Under the present laws of Kansas, Mis souri and Illinois, these cattle are hereafter ■virtually shut out. It has been charged, at least in Northern Missouri, that this war on Texas cattle has grown out of competition, hul Ido not think such to he the case. The facts would tend to the opposite belief, for if the stock feeders could obtain these cat tle at such low figures, and if they would take on flesh as readily as onr native slock the profits of stock feeding would be enor mous. I trust that the subject will be thoroughly investigated in all ns details, so that our farmers will have no doubts hereafter in rrgaid to the real value to them of these Texas cattle. I Trill vcrture the opinion that a large part Of the trouble is due to the change of climate, aud the exposure to which they are subject! The ccld sleety storms of the southern part of «ur sinte are as disastrous to exposed stock as the severe steady dry cold tvcaiiicr oflbe north. STOCK FEEDING. The present system of feeding fat cattle Is a most wasteful one, and oue that must soon be chanced. It is impossible for an animal to lay on flesh curing the cold of winter. When exposed to the fierce prairie winds they barely bold their own, end only make prop-ess in warm weather, and especially ■during the flush of spring feed, when the blue pass is in its prime. The great cost of bams bas been urged as an objection to a better system; but even shelter belts of cottonwood, willow, poplar ■or other rapid-growing trees would do much to ameliorate the climate. Inventive genius at this time gives ns promise of cheap brick, which, if realized, will soon give to the stock farms at least extensive barns and sheds. The farmers are watching these de- Telopment with a deep interest, as well they may, when they look over the price list of lumber, with its constant tendency of “firm” ard “upwards.” The period of reckless speculation Is well High at an erd, and the farmer must begin to study the market, the soil, and the climate, or he will soon find himself high and dry on the shore of unthrift, or shoving h!a craft with brute force along the grooves made by the men who went to mill with corn In one end of the bag and a stone in the other.* Thirty years ago the pain arriving from the West at Albany and New Tork, was measured in the half bushel, put in sacks xmd carried on the backs of men from the river basin, over the wharf; and up two or three pair of stairs, forstorage. If weighed, it was done by ballaccing two platforms on a beam, on one of which was the grain, and on the other an equal weight of cast Iron, rep resenting bushels of llfty-six pounds. Com merce had not then become freighted with agricultural products, nor had fanning be come a commercial calling. Now these things have changed, and the sooner wc con cern to the new condition the better. We have not done fairly by these Texas cattle, because we have abused them in common with our native stock, and because they could not stand the abuse wc have con demned them. We have charged them with importing a disease fatal to others that is mocuous to themselves. Under such a Slate of things, is it not time to pul the Illinois Industrial University in active operation, that farmers msy be taught in a more thor ough and sc icntlfic manner? WELLS AND PUMPS. It is veil known that wells, near the kitchen ard stables, both In city, village and country, become worthless, either partially or wholly, from surrounding impurities that find their way to the water. If these could l>e kept out. no doubt it would improve the general ncauti. Pe:ug o«i. UHC well in my horse barn, I have been forced to Etudy the situation with a view to accom plish the object. Between the back end of the stalls and the west wall Is a space or drive way of twelve by forty-eight feet. The floor of this is of well rammed clay. .Against the west wall of the stable Is a court for cow stable, also twelve by forty eight feet, and capable of holding fifteen Lead of cattle. The lower stoiy of the etahle is of brick, and it is desirable to Lave the well near the wall, close to the cattlfT stalls. The soil is a clay loam, with an abundant supply of water sixteen to twenty feet. At this time the well cannot oc sunk below sixteen feet on account of the EUriace water, but in a dry time it is proba ble that it could be put down twenty feet. The Impurities must come lu with the sur face water, and, if this can he kept out, the "water coming in through the lower strata will be pure. To remedy this, some people Lave resorted totLe use of water lime to lav up the wall, with a view of keeping out the surface water, but In no case have they suc ceeded, so far as 1 can ascertain. I now propose to try the following plan ; To sick the well as deep as practicable, in the usual manner, and to brick it up, say four feet, and than to arch it over with brick. Into this well put an iron nine, similar to a gas pipe,? of one and a half inch bore. On the too of this pipe cut a thread sons to fit a common suction pump. The well Is then to be filled with well rammed clay, so that no surface water can reach the reservoir below. I can sec no reason why ■Hue plan may not prove satisfactory. Ido not know whether this plan has had a trial, and make the suggestion at this early state of the experiment, so that others may give it a trial, or if it has been tested, that tbe Jacts may come to light. There is a further reason to think that it Will prove valuable. At th.« time parties ore sinking a coal shaft near this city. For the Cr»t thirty-two feet the soil is a clav loom with quicksand, which supplies over filly barrels of water am boar. A curb is sunk doirn through this strata, to the 60 iid band of bloc clay. Inside of this curb will be another curb, with a space for clay filling, to beep out Ibis surface water, where the miners expect only to encounter the veins of water that percolate through this clay, which, if fed from above, will have had all of the impurities absorbed out ofit by the soil. Ii is probable that a wall of brick-work could be made sufficiently strosp and light to exclude surface water, hut at a large cost. If the iron pipe will answer the same purpose, it will be a great saving in the cost. First, it will save a large part of the brick-work, and as no mice, rats or other vermin can get into the well, there will be no danger of Impurities from this source, and consequently no expense for well cleaning. The cost of a good iron pnrop is about $3.50, and the pipe will bo about twenty-five cents a foot. In the ag gregate not exceeding the cost of an ordinary well with pump complete. In many parts of the State the wells are sunk deep into the band of blue clay, and depend on the accidental meeting of a vein of living water. During spring and autumn these wells are seriously injured with sur face water, which becomes mingled with the pure, and It Is often late in the season before this surface water has disappeared. It would appear that if this surface water could be cheaply excluded, the good house wife, at least, would rejoice. It would cost hut. a small sum to try the experiment on the old wells especial ly those in need of new pumps. The brick work could he taken up to the desired depth, arched over, and filled in with clay. If It should fall, of which there is little dan. ger, the earth could be taken out and the brick-work replaced. Some persons have auidea that all wells need air, which Is true, hut in this case the well Is simply a spring, and no one can ob ject to drawing water from a spring. THE OIL EEGIONS. IVnrobcr of the Well* Increasing—Great Increase of Production—Latest Strikes at Xiolouto aud oil Creek. {From the Pittsburg Commercial, MarchS.] The evidence of renewed activity in the Pennsylvania oil regions this spring and com ing summer is apparent everywhere, and the number of new and paying wells beihgstrnck reminds ns of the more exciting times of 1801 and 18G5. Notwithstanding a large puraber of operators “shut down” their wells, because of the depesaion In the mar ket, it would seem that the production Las not been materially’ less ened, fis new well* have yielded their quota to more than make up for the deficiency caused by the “shutting down.” A new class of operators Lave now control m the oil regions, and the production of petroleum will not be lessened, unless a stop be pat to further developments, which is not likely to be the case so long as the richest and most available territory is now in the hands of landowners who desire to realize by selling to those only who will develop. OIL CREEK AND VICINITY. The Foster Farm territory, near the Alle gheny River, is again attracting great atten tion. On the 21st ult.. a well was struck on the farm, which at last accounts was yield ing one hundred aud twenty-five barrels per day. On the Patterson farm. Bull Run, a fifty barrel well was struck by Bickford & Russell, on the 201 h, and on the 2let a thirty barrel well was struck on the same farm. The total production of Bull Run is given at five hundred barrels daily. The new well on Lease No. C of the Shoe and Leather Petro leum Company’s tract of the Foster farm Is producing seventy-three barrels per day. CHERRY RUX. A new well was struck about two weeks since on the lands of the Pittsburgh and Cherry Run Oil Company, on Upper Cherry Run, which Is now producirg one hundred barrels daily, and rapidly increasin';. This is a fortunate strike for this company. The Shamuburg well, on Upner Cherry Rnn, has been running since July, !Sf»s, and is reported to have netted over $200,000 to iis owners. It is now producing aoout sev enty-five barrels per day. TDB TIDIOOTE On. FIELD. Tie sinking of new wells in this favored territory is being prosecuted with commend able vigor. Among tie latest new strikes is that ol 2so. 10, Pierce «fe Ncyhart tract, doing two hundred barrels per dav. The produc tion of the Pierce & Ncyhart tract is stated to be at present 1,760 barrels daily. The well No. 8, on the Pierce & Ncyhart tract, on Dennis Run, was recently purchased hy the Bennehoff Mutual Pe trolcum Company, for $15,000. It is pro ducing 100 barrels of 46 gravity oil per day, and increasing. The stock ol crude on hand at Tidionte is given at eighty thousand barrels. There is sufficient tankage In that place to store 113,000 barrels; and when the isnks now contracted lor are completed, they can store 150,000 barrels. There are 85 000 barrels of crude oil now on hand. The ship ments of oil to New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Eric from Tidionte. lor the week ending February 25th, was fourteen thousand, seven hundred and ninety-nine barrels. THE riTUOLE OIL FIELD. The condition of the wells on tho various farms at Pllhole Is unchanged, no strikes of any prominence having been made. The Jitcvrd says: '“Laboring under almost in numerable difficulties as bur operators do at present, owing In the main to the coa unued low price of oil and the con sequent dulnees of all branches of trade in the oil region; still, with an energy commendable in the highest degree, they have never lost faith in the permanency of Pithole oil territory, and vet continue to ex pend both lime and capital In the effort to bung the precious fluid to the surface. We I.are uo doubt that tbeir efforts will be reward o t their ionJ'and‘pSient& t i!‘rs,^ana we hope ere long to be able to chronicle the fact of a rise In the price of the commodity and a consequent revival ot business all over the oil region.” 3IAEEIAGE OF BLOOD BELiTIOXS. An Important Report. The Commissioners of the Kentucky In stitution lor the education aud training of feeble-minded children, at Frankfort, have just made their animal report to the Legis lature. These Commissioners arc persons 1 thoroughly competent to the mat • tr r which they consider, being the Principals of the Asylnm for Deaf .Mutes and the Blind and the Superintendents of the Eastern hos pital for the Insane, at Lexington. Against the marriage of Wood lelations, -which is much more frequent iu Kentucky than north of the Ohio River, they protest in the fol lowing emphatic terms: . A subject of very great social importance is brought Incidentally to notice in the re port ; the Intermarriage of persons nearly re lated. “We deem it,” says th« report, “our duty to the interest oflmmanity, as well as to the pecuniary interest of the Stale to bear onr testimony, in addition to the abun- Jr? 1 j e f tln >°, n y heretofore collected and onb iished by physicians aud philanthropists, aid to the observation of every close ob server, as well as to general considerations of propriety, that a -large percentage of deaf mutes and of the blind, a limited percentage of lunatics, aud, no doubt a much larger one than either of feeble minded or idiotic children are the off spring of the marriage of first cousins. Our charitable institutions are filled with chil dren all the time whose parents are so re lated—sometimes as many as four from one family; and we have known in the case of id'pts, of a still larger number in a family It is a learful penally to which persons so related lender themselves liable by lorrain"- the matrimonial relation, and whicS they in nearly every instance incur, not incecd In all, but in one or more ol their offspring. Instances, we do not deny, may be shown where a por tinn of the children—one or more—may in herit from both parents, where possessed of high mental and bodily endowment of a common origin, enhanced and remarkable qualities of body and mind ; bat it is gener “**y expense of unfortunate and deep j Jy afflicted brothers and sisters. We believe lew instances can be given where such en- Lanced endowments are common to all the offspring; while instances arcnotnnfrequent where nearly all, and, in a few, perhaps, every child, is afflicted either in body or mind, and sometimes in both. The State has, in a large majority of ca®es Im. . uc ? t *’., a , ljd often support for life, these afflicted children. Has she not then a clear and indisputable right to Interpose her au thority to prevent matrimonial alliances «o pn dnctivc of private calamity and of public injury / The State is thereby not ouly dc -1 rauded of the labor, usefulness. eoerg\- aud intelligence of a considerable portion of her citizens, hut she has, in addition, the burden ol their edneallon and support, aud. in the case of uneducated Idiots, their support for tile, thus unreasonably superinduced. , h cr - 'lhe unfortunate, bv un * on able casualty, she must ana ought cheerfully to provide for; hut surely she Is not hound, in reason and good policy, to legalize marriages so productive ol private and public damage. Indeed It is preposterous, not to say wrong, that sh;’ should do it. A Jaw of a few lines would cut off, hence forward, the expenditure of thousands of dollars for the support of the offspring of marriages of first cousius, as well as prevent the buruen of a lifetime of sorrow and re gret in many estimable families. We desire to say, emphatically, that this opinion is not a theory, but is based upon well-ascertaiacd and indubitable facts. THE IXADEK Of THE HOUSE. Tbnddcc* Steven*.

A letter dated Corfu, February 15, says: “The French steamer Sentinelle, which left on tbe Sth instant, to carry assistance to the victims of the earthquake, has returned from its mission. Orynstoll is completely de stroyed. The whole lower part of the town, which was the finest and the richest, has dis appeared—not a single bouse remains stand ing, and those which had been able to resist the first shocks are now thrown down. In the centre of the town the bouses have also suffered to a great extent; most of them will require to he built again. The only part spared was the one Ijing against the moun tain: hut It is doubtful if that town, so flourishing a few days ago, will ever rise from Its ruins. During the last lew years the cultivation of the Corinth raisin and olive had made great advances in the Island, and since the annexation to Greece, Oryostoli had become the principal centre of tco raisin trade. During the last > ear 18,000,000 pounds of that produce had left tie port. Used to a life of comfort, tho inhabitants of that doomed town are now without home aud without clothes —in fact, with no resources at all. They have not vet been able to look among the ruins for {Heir precious effects; they are seen wandering about, sad, east down, exposed to the clem- ; tccics of the season on tbe desolated plateau.

The full extent of the disasters In the interior of the island is not yet known but it is certain that they are considerable. A great number of villages are in ruins, and two of them have been engulpbed. The vic tims belonging to those two villages arc said to outnumber live hundred. In the town of Lisiuri only, more than one hundred bodies have been discovered up to this time, and the search is far from being finished. In the whole island fifty thousand persons at least are withont home and without food.” Tliu Kentucky Election.

[From the Detroit Tribune, March 01 , Yesterday afternoon about i o’clock, a well uressed woman came to"the house of Jacob Smith, a colored roan, residing on Lafayette street cast, near Dcuuindre street, complain ed of feeling ill, nud asked permission to lie cown for a short time. She soon requested u glass of water, and mixing in it some in gr« dicctsshc bad with her, drank it oil*. Since writing the above we have learned additional particulars concerning the unfor tunate occurrence. The woman has led an abandoned life for some time, both in this and other cities, and has been the kept mis trets of several parties.' About a year a-'o or so she “captivated ” a young man, aod un der an assumed name lived with him iu rooms on Jefferson avenue. So strong was her attachment to him that she desired to change her state of “single blessedness” and become his wife, but he failed to “see It in that light,” and in order to break off the attachment he proposed to leave the city. To this she objected, and took a largo dose of chloroform with the intention of commit ting suicide. Medical aid being summoned, however, the “shullllng off” business was postponed, cud the parties cohabited to gether as formerly. Latterly the estrange ment formerly attempted manifested itself again, this time with some purpose. Tim man decided to leave her, did so, and is now away fromthecity. Despairlngof his return the woman has undoubtedly resorted t > poison a second time to release her of her misery, and the probabilities are that she ha succeeded. There does cot appear to be on chance in one hundred of her surviving. The name of the woman is Nellie Greene.
