Abstract of a Report Made to the Agricultu ral Society of Philadelphia, April 2, by Dr. Edmund C. Evans, Mr. Harry Inger soli and Mr. Psachall Morris, a Committee Appointed at the Previous Meeting to Re port on Silk and Wool. WOOL IN THK UNITED STATES. . The area of faming land in the United States is 407,000,000 acres, of which 190,- 000,000 are improved land, and of the remainder 159,000,000 arc wood land. The soil in general is fertile, and being adapted both for pasture lands, and for the cere at and textile plants it might be supposed that its population of 38,000,000, would be in the enjoyment of clothes and food and the necessaries of life, at as low prices as the people of any other country. East of the Mississippi, however, owing to neglect of proper culture, from scarcity of laborers and other causes, Ihe productive ness of the land is not increasing. Euro pean immigration, by means of the vast extension of rail roads, and the tempta tions of cheap lands, (which to the extent of many millions of acres are the donations of the government, to railroads and immi grant companies and Credit Hobiliers,) is so scattered, for and wide through these immense domains, that the settlers can aid each other but little; so that in the West, much of their labor is wasted, its produc tions being left to rot on the ground where it grew, or to afford fuel to the people. The “ Country Gentleman.” a short time ago, published the following statement . “ Corn in Central Illinois is worth in the field from fifteen to eighteen cents per bushel of seventy-fire pounds in the ear. Fanners say that three more such crops as we had in 1870-71-72 will ruin the coun try. Price* of forms and of lands are from twenty to thirty per cent lower than four years ago, and, say they, three or even two more such crops, will bring the present price* down to ten cents, and our farms down to ton or fifteen dollsn per acre, which will not be sufficient to release the mortgages covering them.” This is the first time in the history of funning, that large trope are regarded as a curse. The protectionists will tell us, we want factories oat there, in other words consn mere. Bnt where are the consumers of factory products to come from? This condition of things is dne to the fact that the farmers out there have no help near at hand to gather their produce, neither have they the means of getting their grain to market; besides, capital is wanting with which to buy cattle and sheep, the spare capital of these poor immigrants has been largely consumed by the.expenses of travel from the East to the Wes*. The cheapest and most profitable method of getting their com to market, is by feeding it tobeevesandaheepaodthnstraasporting it in the shape of meat; but for this they are too poor. It is said, ■ that whilst the formers are everywhere suffering from want of labor, that at least thirty per cent, of the workingmen of New York, and our large cities are idle, or in other words, Hurt one-third of the time of the working men of these cities is wasted in idleness. Such are the inevitable consequences of our protective policy, and of the interfe rence of the government with the indus tries of the country; at one end of the line creating an over crowded population with idleness, and genera] demoralisation; at the other end, donations of millions of teres of for distant form lands, scattering of the population for and wide, resulting ' in attar helplessness, consequent loss of ! their productions, in a word, their labor ! wasted. In the midst of plenty, our for- ' men are threatened with rain. But a ‘ glance at the Censae table of 1860 and ‘ 1870 ought to awaken ne to our condition. C They show, that, notwithstanding an in- C crease of onr population of 7,000,000 in f the hat decade, and also an addition of 25,000,000 sens to the quantity of impro- * red bund; (this inmate being equal to two-thirds of all the hod of England and Wake,) recording to the agricultural cen- * sus, than was an actual decrease of the * •ora erop of 1870, thus the crop of 1860 ' was 838,792,742 bwsbele, of 1870 was bnt 760,944.549 bushels; alas a decrease in * SI &aqp la 1860, 38,000,000, and of wool j 143.000. pounds; sheep in 1869-70 34.000. and of wool 135,000,000 pounds (the manufacturing census have this 168,000,000 pounds); sheep in 1871 32.000. and of wool 128,000,000 pounds; sheep in 1873 31.000,000, and l of wool quantity not received. The New England States, New York. New Jersey and Pennsylvania, show a decrease in the number of cattle and uxeu, (not including cows); and if Illinois and Ohio be added, there is tn increase of but 300.000 over 1860, In sheep, the States first named, are short one million. It is true that the sixteen Southern States show a diminution of about 500,000 cattle, and not quite one million of sheep; these figures, however, would not materially affect the result. This deficiency exists i notwithstanding the large increase of land and population, and a lapse of ton years. | This exhibit does not place our agricu! lure in a very flourishing condition. How is this to be explained. We all know that labor will do nearly as much for the com crop as manure, and, that with manure and without labor, we cannot have a good corn crop. In the West, though the Census tables show a large return for corn in the aggregate, we most not forget that a very large part of the crop is left to waste, so that the wealth j of the country is that much abort. It seems incredible that the farmers of the country should so neglect sheep hus bandry. In 1871, over the vast domain of 190.600.000 acres of improved lands, and with our population of 38.000,000, wo produced bnt 128,000,000 pounds of wool, and imported 68,000,000 millions of pounds. In 1872 we imported 122,000,- 000 pounds to pay for which we sent out of the country $26,000,000; and this im ported wool paid a duty of twenty-five per cent. Those little islands of Groat Britain and Ireland, containing 77,000,000 acres, and 32,000,000 of people produced in 1870, 260,000,000 pounds of wool, being ' over 100,000,000 pounds more than onr total production. With our hundreds of millions of pastoral lands, we must go to England for our wool, even with a tariff of; twenty-five per cent to protect us. "Pauper labor" surely cannot give England this I advantage in sheep husbandry. Her farm men pay higher per acre for the annual | rent of their farms than onr Western farm- j ere pay per acre for their fertile farms in fee. How is it they can afford to grow wool on their high priced lands twenty-five per cent, cheaper than our farmers can, with all their advantages of abundance of cheap lands. Sheep husbandry doubtless requires knowledge, skill and attention, not generally possessed by paupers, but which our general school education, costing an enormous sum, should give to onr fanners; besides onr immigrant population come from sheep countries. Sheep supply ns not only with wool and meat, but on our new lands and stump lands are very profitable ; they destroy weeds snd undergrowth, and by dropping their manure evenly over the sod, they arc peculiarly valuable for re novating old grass lands. In looking over the history of sheep husbandry in tbia country, we find one of the greatest obstacles to its success and extension, is the dread of dogs. The value of $150,000 in sheep were killed by dogs in 1871, in lows, and in thirty-two coun ties of Missouri 10.662 sheep have been killed by dogs. From the South, as well as the North and West, we hear of the lamentations of farmers for the damage done to sheep, and yet farmers continue to submit to this tyranny. Mr. Berg of New York, publicly draws attention to the “infectious” condition of the sheep in that market, caused by their sufferings in their transit from the far West. But he seems 1 to be ignorant of what may be called the remote cause of this dreadful condition of the meat market in New York, and of the remedy. It is this, that in the thickly settled farming districts near our large towns, the dread of the dogs has driven sheep away from farms, and until a reme dy is applied, we most submit to eat “in fectious" matter. Remove the dread of dogs, and the hills will be restocked with flocks of sheep, and onr markets supplied with healthy mutton and increase of wool. Our Farm Product! The census of 1870, in the portion de voted to agriculture, announces the fact that there are 407,785,041 acres of land iaeludsd in farms in the United States, the cash value of which is estimated at $9,262,803,861. The value of the farm products, implements and live stock is stated at $4,309,693,544, and the annual amount of wages paid to farm hands at $310,286,285. Of the acreage of the farms nearly 189 millions are arable land, which is cultivated, and on this laud during the census year there were produced 1887 millions of bushels of grain. The wood land amounts to 159 millions of acres, and the unimproved enclosed land to 59J mil lions of acres. The grain produced was 288 millions of bushels of wheat, 58 j mil lions of rye, barley and buckwheat; 782 millions of oats, and 761 millions of Indian corn. Besides this grain there were also produced the following. potatoes, beans, and peas, 171 millions of bushels; rice. 741 millions of pounds; hotter, 514 mil lions of pounds; cheese, 53) millions of pounds; honey and maple sugar, 43 mil lions of pounds ; molasses and syrup, 23J mill! ons of gallons; cane sugar, 87,043 hogsheads; wine, three millions of gallons; swine, sheep snd cattle numbering 681 millions; milch oows numbering nine mil lions; milk, 2351 millions of gallons; hay, 271 millions of tons; and the slaughtered animals were valued at 399 millions of dollars, and the orchard and garden pro ducts at 68 millions of dollars. Those enormous products are much more than are necessary for onr home consumption, and hence we export vast quantities of food to all part* of the world. Great as are these returns, the Superin tendent of the Census thinks they do not some up to the real total, as with so large an expanse of territory an omission of value in the gross has been unavoidable. They give us an index, however, of the 1 great (Ufcare in store for our country. Leas | than oae-haif of the acreage of enclosed ’ forms is under cultivation, and as the i country contains altogether 1942 millions ■ if serai, sad bat 189 millions (less than J rne-tenth the surface) are under cnltiva- ' ion, the opportunity for agricultural ex- , motion is evident. Three-fourths of the r nwnt production of the country is raised ( m the farms of the Mississippi Valley. t Treatment of Sick Horses. Bots. —Bots are not necessarily fatal to hones, bat often are the cause of internal I complications, which, if not checked in time, will result in death. The pressure : of an immense number of hots will often j impair tho digestive organs, bring on dys pepsia. ur induce internal inflammation. When tho nostrils are distended, the breathing fast and hard, the extremities warm, and tho horse bites at his flanks, means should at once be employed to get rid of tho bots, which can bo done effect ually by using the following, as a drench : Prescription.—One ounce of chloroform, one pint of linseed oil, in a pint of warm I water. The chloroform will diffuse itself | through the system, and stupefy the bots. { causing them to let go their hold on the j maw; the oil heals the wounded places. { and at, the same time acts as a purge, ex -1 pelling the bota from the system, j Worms. —To make sure that your colt ; has worms, give him an ordinary dose of 1 physic, and watch his evacuations ; if he has worms, one or more will appear therein. After being satisfied that ho is troubled with them, adopt (he following treatment: Take of tar tar emetic I drachm; powdered ginger, j drachm ; linseed meal, enough | for a ball; mix with boiling water. Give I ouc ball every morning for a week, then n ' dose of physic, linseed oil being the best, under the circumstances. Let the stomach . rest a week. Give another course of balls and physic, after which let the horse have a drachm of sulphate of iron (powdered) twice a day with his feed. Spavin.—The use of simple ointments or tinctures will do no harm, and may have the desired effect. Diluted tincture of arnica, used as a wash, will be found ben eficial ; bathe the parts with it four or five times a day; or anoint the parts with Wigg's Horseshoe Ointment, rubb well in. Avoid for the present all violent exorcise, j —Tn if Field and Farm. Going West. The American says: —Wc ' j would like to hear of a case similar to that stated in the annexed paragraph, of any : one who has emigrated to the West under ; parallel circumstances, faring us well, or j likely to do so, as this Mr. Stamp, who in his native country was an ordinary laborer, but who, instead of ‘ going Weal" on reaching our shores, turned his face South. I and went to work on shares, with the re sult told by the editor of Trewstcra Exe ■ tor (Eng. ) Flying Putt, of Jan 29, one of i the English papers received at the office ; of the American Farmer : , Cotton in its Raw State. —Mr. He i mens, of St. Sidwell, has received from ■ America afi nc sample of cotton as taken , from a plant. It was sent to him by a I very fortunate Exonian—Thomas Stamp, , formerly in the employ of Mr. LuscouAc. builder, of St. Sidwell as horse-keeper. 1 Some two years since Stamp emigrated to . America, and soon after his arrival enga . ged with a planter to give his services for a portion of the proceeds from the culture , of the plantation; and at the end of the f first year Stamp became part proprietor of 1 the estate. He is now the sole proprietor 3 of it, so he imtimates in his recent letter > to his friend ir this city. His success . has been so unequivocal that he anticipates , in the course of a few years the blissful ] pleasure of being able to return to his o£u 8 native country to enjoy the fruits of his 8 perseverance and industry. 8 * f Remedy for the Cut-Worm. s J. Wilkinson in the Maryland Farmer, t says:—l have a matter of special impor r tance to communicate to all who may have s corn to plant after reading this. It may 8 save the Ices of a crop for many, and if but f one should heed it, and thereby save bis e crop, I shall feel that I am fully remuuc- J rated for my effort to benefit a class who 8 actually need all that they can get, that i will in any way promote their interest. As soon as the corn is planted, apply a - full labletjuion of ground tall to the hill; f let the salt spread over an area five or six i inches across. 1 Do not delay the application until the . corn is up, or is about coming up, or you will destroy the plants. If applied soon after planting, the first - rain will dissolve the salt, and so charge t the soil around the plants with saline mat i tor, that neither the black grub or cut , worm, nor the wire worm will harbor in it. t It is a reliable remedy, and the fertili i ling properties of Ihe salt will |iay well for its cost aud application in the increase of I the crop. Leave a row occasionally, and t observe the effect. Be sure that your I > seed com is good. , Treatment or Frozen Trees.—Mr. Hanford of Indiana stated, at the recent . meeting of the Michigan Tautological So -1 ciety, that in the cold winter of 1856 he hod a poach orchard of thrifty young trees i absolutely killed to the snow line, and of course a total loss as far as appearances indicated or experience could suggest. Knowing, however, that the trees had been vigorous and that their roots must possess considerable power of reproduction, he proceeded to cut off the cutire top of every tree that had been killed, and left nothing but unsightly stumps throughout the orchard. The spring came on ; ad vanced somewhat; he watched his stum;* with anxiety; found that numerous buds started out from these stubs, put forth their ahoots and made a remarkable growth, and in two years he had as good and healthy an orchard os that which had been cot off by the frost. Since that time he has frequently had occasion to treat other trees in a similar manner, sometimes catting off injured branches only, and has almost uniformly bad good results. But it is necessary to cut off the injured bran ches of frosen tops as early aa possible af- . ter the snow is gone, and always before the sap has begun to ascend the tree. , Tanning with the Wool on. Inquiry as to the best method of tan ning sheepskins with the wool on, for uae , aa rags and door-mats, is frequently made. Hera are the directions: Tack the t •kin upon a board with flesh side oat, then 1 scrape with a batcher knife; next sprinkle r over with pulverised chalk until it will J absorb no more. Then take the skin from the board, and cover it with pulverised alum, double half-way over with the flesh side in contact, then roll tight together, and keep dry for three daya, after which unfold it and atreteh it again on a board or door, and dry in the air aad it will be 1 1 ready for nee.
