Silk Culture, Wc noticed some tine ago the establish ment in Baltimore, of a silk manufactory, the operations of which were carried on in a large upper room of a warehouse owned by us; the great increase in the business requiring more room than was there to be had, accommodations were obtained else where. and we are gratified to learn that groat success is being attained by the gentlemen who have established so import ant a branch of manufacturing in our State: and we note in the daily papers advertisements for a large increase of the number of female operatives in the works. Tt is a beautiful business, paying well fot the female labor employed, and we always rejoice at witnessing increased facilities for its honorable employment. In various sections of our country the increase of the silk business is shown to be very great In one of the New Jersey cities we recent ly noticed that 3,000 operatives in the sill factories there were engaged in a strike that bane to all our business operations. The time will come, and this is what w. now wish to coll attention to, when the necessity will be upon us for the raising ol the mulberry- for the feeding of the worms in order to supply the raw material foi the manufacture of the silk, now so sac cessfiilly inaugurated, and which is al present imported from abroad; and wt would advise those planting out trees t, include in their selections some of the white mulberries, from which a rapid in crease by catlings can be obtained whet the time arrives to supply the demand foi the cocoons and the raw silk. It is very probable that some of the remains of the plantations which were made during the memorable Moms Multicanlis speculation some twenty or thirty years ago, may still exist in many places, and may hereaftei be brought into profitable play; then, everybody was for making a fortune off ot the cuttings and bads, whilst, no one seemed to make a move towards the preparation for the manufacture of the silk, hence the wiklness of the schemes of the speculators was only on a smaller scale with the cele brated South Sea bubble, and eventuated in the rain of a large number of them.— AmeriacH Farmtr. Con in Hills and Brills. At the Michigan Agricultural College, in 1868, two plots of Laud were set apart, substantially equal in character of soil, ■ each measuring forty-eight rods in width. The gronnd was plowed May 5, and ma nure waa spread evenly and worked in by cultivator and harrow. Yellow Dent corn was planted May 21, in rows fonr feet apart; one of the plots being planted in hills, the other in drills. The plots were cultivated and hoed June 15, and again July 7; the plants being thinned so as to leave the same number of stalks on each plot, including the equal distribution of plants throughout, the subdivision of the plots As near as possible each of the two plots received the same labor and cultiva tion. The stalks were cut September 17, and stacked in good order; three weeks afterword the com was husked and weigh ed. The stalks were then again carefully stacked, and hauled and weighed, in good condition, October 12. The com on the portion planted in hills was better in quali ty than on that planted in drills. Bat the drilled portion produced seventy-four and one-sixth bn-eels of shelled com, and three tons of stalks to the acre, against sixty-five and one-half bushels of shelled com, and two and two-thirds tons of stalks per sere produced by the portion in hills. —Rural World. Manuring ton Coax.—A com plan ter makes a very tree remark when be says that ‘ Nature is a great chemist, using up materials; bat not a creator, making something out of nothing. Whatever dressing is appliad merely in the hilt or pon the hill, for effect, depends upon the general condition of the soil outside of the hills. Good ground, in any season, or plenty of dressing upon it, is necessary to • large crop."—Americas Farmtr The Gunpowder Agricultural dub of Baltimore Co., held its meeting for April on the 12th sit., at the form of Mr. Tab hot t. Cmunch. The regular subject up for discussion was upon the breeds of cattle best suited for the dairy, with some subdivisions aa congenital points. An Interesting and pleasant incident of this last season. The host of the occasion had Wn awarded the first prixe for a yield of aMfc, and Mr M. Ooraucb Then mi j**rniancnt mire for wind w? to jrHnm to it again j The N. Y. Sconomut, the loading jour | | i>i>i of the financial and commercial jof the I T . 8., publishes extracts from cir-j i eulais of eminent firms connected with the ji Wool bade in this uoantry and England, tending very positively to show that “good prices throughout the coming year may be anticipated.’ By the way, a short time since the Wool speculators from the East attempted to ; forestall the wool growers at the West, in ; the quiet purchase of all the stocks on I hand—the attempt was discovered in time | to prevent its success, and by a concerted action. which farmers can so seldom take, they determined to hold on to their fleece until such lime as a fair price could be ob tained from the agents of the manufac turers. and for once at least they were I successful. If in every neighborhood of ton miles square an agricultural club could be formed, as wc have so often urged, the farmers would be able in many eases to protect themselves from imposi i tion.—American Farmtr. Tux New Peach, —Col. Edward Wil kins, of Kent county, Md.. one of the most extensive peach growers in the coun ty, is planting out an orchard of 15,000 peach trees of the Eablv Beatrice variety. This is the new peach, of which wo gave an account in the Advocate, sumo months ago. It was originated by f Mr. Rivers, of Sawbridgcworth. England, and is very early, ripening in this latitude, about the 10th of July. This peach is of medium sise, light colored, with bright red cheek, juicy, and of delightful flavor. - There is a fortune in its production, for , Col. Wilkins. a • j Sap. —Professor Collins says the water ( of the sap comes from the ground, being e imbibed by the roots. A considerable i. quantity of starch is stored up in the wood t of the tree in the fall, and dissolved in e the water taken in by the roots. Why sap [, will flow at one time and not at another, ir according to the wind and weather, is not , well understood. Starch and sugar are e very nearly the same in composition. , Sugar only contains a little more water, ir chemically united, not simply mixed with it. rs * ’ ‘ They have a Fanners Club in the city of New Yotk, which meets at the Cooper [e Union, and here ia what they talked about t at their meeting, on Tuesday afternoon j last: —English sparrows and measuring worms, clearing soot from chimneys, sugar c smoke for wounds, cultivation of hedges. Brasilian agriculture, and the preparation re of dried fruits, were among the topics |e touched upon by the talkative savans as sembled. *> According to a newspaper paragraph >r the first cheese factory in the State of Ver o- mont and the second in the country was kt established in Chittenden eonnty, in 1858, '* by E. D. Mason, now president of the t 0 State Dairymen’s Association. At pres lc ent there are sixty-seven factories in the *■ State, twenty-two of which are in Chitten in den county. The town of Richmond. >r which is only four miles and three-quar y ters square, makes two hundred tons of le cheese a year. ic i, Stock Breeding, —lt is claimed that 11 the greatest nutrition and the highest >r vitality produce the female, while the i, want of these in the sire and dam gives if character to the male. The theory is d startling. If nutrition at a very early n stage of development decides thcqncstion ie of sex, it 1s well enough for onr breeders in to understand the fart. But will the thc s- ory hold water? a ——r*“ i At a late discussion by the Champlain Valley (Vt) Horticultural Society, it was stated that a few years ago the fruit of the orchard of Mr. Wright, of Cornwall, was invariably so wormy that the owner thought of abandoning the attempt to ’ grow fruit for profit. The orchard was converted into a hog pasture, and in two years the fruit was all fair. Colic tx Horses.—Either of the fol | lowing prescriptions will cure the colic : One onnoe snip, ether, one ounce lauda num. two tablespoonfulls bi-carb. soda; mix in one pint of warm water and drench. 1 2. Half an ounce of chloroform, one onnoe laudanum, in a pint of warm water; used g. also os a drench. If relief is not given in fifteen minutes, repeat the dose. The first dose is generally found to be sufficient. Nitrate of soda, a valuable artificial fer ’ tilizer, is brought from Pern. In one of ’ the Peruvian provinces is a deposit extend ing for hundreds of miles and several feet ' in thickness, so that the supply is pratical * ly inexhaustible. The rapid decrease of ! the guano deposits will soon tend to bring ' natural nitrogenous fertilisers into extended ! use. 1 I The editor of the Farmtr t Journal t says :—As soon as the cholera ia discovered I in yonr herd give at the rate of one ounce s of catabolic acid to twenty-five hogs, well . dissolved and mixed with swill, and repeat every two or three days. Remove every affected hog at once from the healthy ' ones, and bury all carcasses immediately. s t - 5 The Baltimore County Farmers’ Club, 5 on the 3d of April, appointed D. M. r Matthews, Esq. a representative to the r Agricultural Congress to be held at In - dinapolis, on the 24th of May. A com > mittee of three was also appointed to wait f on Got. Whyte to ask a reform of certain ) abuses in the management of the Hay Scales in Baltimore city. f The custom-house value of wool, goat I hair, Ac,, imported into this country during . the nine months ending September 30, 3 1872, is 821,619,895, according to C.

Browing an Inference A . “I liked your sermon very much to-day S * j with a single exception,” said a worthy j pdstor to a minister who had occupied his pulpit a portion of the Sabbath. I ■ Well, what waa the exception ?” ■'l think you used too many technical J phrases." I “Did I? I didn’t think of it." "You repeatedly spoke of drawing in-; | forenoes. Now, that was Greek to many hearers." | "0, no! Most every one, knows what wc mean by drawing inferences." “You are mistaken, brother, as sure ss | you live; Ido not believe one-half of my I i congregation would understand the phrase ' ) “You certainly cannot bo right." “I am. Now, there is Mr. Smith," | pointing out a man just turning the cor- 1 nor, "who is quite an intelligent farmer: | * we will overtake him, and I will ask him if he can draw an inference, and I do not I believe that he will understand me." Accordingly the ministers quickened j their pace, and as they came up to Mr. ! Smith, his pastor said to him : “ Brother Smith, can you draw an in- ■ ference 7" "Brother Smith, thus summarily in-1 terrogated. looked at hia pastor for some - fifteen seconds, quite surprised, and then | rather hesitatingly said: |, “Well I suppose I could. I've got ai ’ pair of steers that can draw anything to I which they are hitched, but 1 shouldn't 1 ' like to on Sunday.’’ !, A Little Puxxled ■ An old woman who traded in groceries ; ; got involved in a complicated business' , transaction, as follows: 1 A customer came in one day and said, , "Old woman, what do you ask for hcr i ring? , “Three cents a piece,” said the old ; lady. ■ i “I’ll take one,"said the customer; sod , j the aged vender proceeded to do it up. "What do you ask for beer?" said the | . customer, as the parcel was handed him. 1 “Three cents a glass." said she. r “On the whole," said he, “I’ll take a r glass of beer instead of the herring." So t he took the beer and started to go. i “Beg your pardon,” said the old lady, 5 “but you haven't paid for the beer." r j “Paid for it! Of course not. Didn't ,1 1 give you back tbe herring for it ?” j j i , “Well, but," persisted the old lady, you 11 s didn’t pay for the herring.” “Pay for the herring! Of course I did not, I didn’t take it, did I ?" ; 1 “Well, said the old woman, after a; 1 pause, in which she strove to master the mathematics of it, "I presume you’re | * correct, but I wish you wouldn’t trade here ' ' any more.” ! J Strange Rivals.—They tell a funny incident which happened lately at an auc tion sale of damaged goods. A pair of ‘ blankets were up which seemed to take the eye of the crowd ; the highest bid was ■ one dollar from a lady who was determined £ ito have them. "Dollar fifty,” cried a gentleman from the opposite side of the room. Two dollars, from the lady. “Two * fifty, nodded the man. “Three.” screamed 1 the lady, "Three fifty,” rejoined the ‘ man. "Three fifty I’m offered,” says the auctioneer. "Say four?” “Yea.” “Four fifty and that's all," added the gen tleman. "Sold,” cried the man with the hammer, bursting with laughter. "To * Captain Smith, four dollars and a half.” j "Captain Smith,” shouted the lady, “whatl my husband ?” and raising herself on tip toe to get a sight of him, “why, you good j for nothing man, you have been bidding f. against your own wife.” I A Story ok Henry Clay.—Sam f Long, a well-known circus clown, tells the 0 following story of Henry Clay: “I re- c member once we entered Lexington in | procession, and it just happened that • Henry Clay was driving in at the same time. I brought up the rear of tbe pro- i cession, riding a mule. Aa he was direct- I ly behind me, I turned my face to the ass' tail, and sang out, “Hero we are, fellow citixens, Wisdom led by folly.” The peo ple laughed and sbonted. and old Harry seemed greatly amused. The next day at the circus 1 made him a speech, in which I advised him to be President of the United States, and take me in his cabinet. That night he sent me a bottle of the finest wine r I ever tasted, with bis compliments, say ■ ing "from the poorest fool to the best t clown in the United States.” Ah! sir, - there was a great man for you.” f _ ! An old negro stretched upon a board, and I slumbering, with his feet pointing to a glimmering fire, opens one eye and gets a glimpse of them os they stand in the 1 obscurity. Mistakes them for two little * negroes, and cries: “Gif fnm ’fore me!" B and relapses into sleep. After a while ' opens the other eye, and still seeing the * intruders, says; “Gif fnm ’fore me, I 1 say! I kick you in de fire if you don't—l f will, shuah!" and again he snores. Mis - dreams not being pleasant be soon opens his eyes, and still seeing the little pests, ’> he draws up his foot for the threatened ' kick, but is alarmed to see the enemy B advance upon him; ‘ Wha-war you cornin' to, now? Humph, mj own feet, by ; joH,r 1 A young lady, at a dinne- party, f pestered Doctor Johnaon with a conun drum a thing which the bluff old phil t osopher abominated. “Why is the letter , J like tbe end of spring, doctor?” was I, the question, and, of course, the doctor couldn’t tell. "Because it’s the beginning f of June,” was the solution. "Now, miss, , will you tell roe why tbe letter K is like a pig’s tail ?" sternly asked the doctor. The yonng lady had to give it up. The doc tor was bothered with no more connn - drams. > " 1 ■ • . Mcinbenr von Duack attended at court J in New York to get excused from the I jury-box, “I can't nnsthand goot Eng , lesc,” quoth Meinhcrr. “What did he say?" asked the judge. “I can’t nnsthand i goot Englese, ” repeated the Dutchman. _■ | "Take yonr seal," cried the judge, "take I I yonr seat That's no excuse; you need | not be alarmed, as you are not likely to hear any here."
