The farmer* of Montgomery county, Maryland, recently held convention *t Sands Sraiuff at which some airriculturai ed and acted on. One was whether any meana could bo devined by which the several Farmer s Cloba in the county can carry on, in concert, a seriea of sgricnl tnnd experiments no as to aeenre a com parison of definite results. The discussion led to the raising of a committee charged with the duty of making further investiga tion of the subject. A comparison of views on the question whether the epiaooty has left horses enfeebled, resulted in s j general conclusion that horses which were overworked or unduly exposed while the disease was npon them, if not permanently injured, were at least left in n delicate condition, and that hence all should treat them with due care and avoid overtaxing them. Mr. William J. Scofield presented a written statement of his dairy operation for the past year. He reported a herd of niuo cows, and, reckoning from January 1,1872, to January 1, 1873. an average of2oo pounds of butter per cow. This j was sold at 43 cents per pound, amounting to $774, of which he reckoned $650 as profit. Attention being called to the fact that in Maryland the legal weight for a 1 bushel of oats is 26 pounds, while in the District of Columbia it is 32 pounds, a committee was appointed to bring the matter before the District legislature and endeavor to effect a change. It would seem that the application is to be made to the wrong legislature, since 32 pounds is the prevailing weight in the United Slates; out of thirty States in which the weight per bushel of oats is fixed by law, it is 32 pounds in eighteen, 30 in five, 33 in two, and 28, 28, 33j, 34, 35, and 36 in many single States. —Monthly Report Depart meet of Agriculture. BUy Where You Are. Wo have many inquiries asking advice about selling farms at the East and going West. This everlasting uneasiness be longs to the Yankee character, and is one of the elements, perhaps, in his enterprise. We wish, however, to express, with em phasis, our dissent from the too prevalent opinion, that forms at the East are past working with profit. If, instead of selling out, the owner of an Eastern form would inform himself as to the character of his soil and its needs, and then expend the amount of money be must sacrifice in sell ing off all his stock, farming tools and oth er personal property, in needed improve ments and thorough working of his form, he will find all he desires in the possibili ties of the old homestead. There is no lack of the natural elements of fertility in these forms; they possess the undeveloped equivalents of a thousand crops. The de posits are there; only draw your cheek with the proper formality and the teller of Mother Nature’s hank will honor it. Cook at the advance of British agriculture in the last half century —her increase from fourteen to twenty-eight bushels of wheat per acre. If she had possessed millions of acres of virgin soil, her farmers might have abandoned the old and sought the new fields; hat instead of that, they have ad ded a new kingdom below, doubling the production of the acres they possess. Young men who have no farms, the old hive being full, will do well to seek one in the West, but do not abandon the ances tral acres to tiie stranger. — Lin-Stuck Witit at A Nil Corn Prodccts or Cass County, lowa.—The secretary of the Csss County Agricultural Society reports; The Arnautka wheat is a hard, flinty variety. It has been raised in this county two years; is a prolific fielder, but of inferior quality, being so hard that it is impossible to make choice flour out of it. It is only worth 75 cents per bushel in this market, where wheat like the Oran is from $1 to sl.lO per bushel. Our best wheat is Australian and toft Siberian. The Australian is a soft, choice wheat, and yielded as high as 40 bushels per acre last season. This is a good wheat county. Of the crop of 1872, up to present date, there have been shipped from this point, At lantic, over 200,000 bushels at an average juice of $1 per bushel. Of corn there are V in this place 100,000 bushels; 50,- 000 bushels have been shipped, and only a ■mail part is in as yet. All has been bought at 15 cents per pnshel. It is now Poslrt ok Purslane. While every farmer and gardener in this country is pronouncing anathemas against this pest in Europe it is being carefully cultivated In Britain and upon the Continent, purs lane is considered a very choice and deli cious vegetable, and this only shows the truth of the old adage, “what Is one man's food is often another's poison.' Although we ore inclined to believe that this plant is not a very bad one anywhere, and when rofuse sowbofeLT or delicate' a dish Nature bestowed blessings npon us with such a bountiful hand, that we hare come to loot upon many of her gifts as annoy •uni Home. ia still a vast amount of wheat seeking market, it is a matter of some interest to know that the demand in Groat Britain will be at least onc-fmmh greater during the next three or four months than has heretofore been supposed. It is also sta ted opon what is considered correct data that the supply from countries other than the United States will probably be one-1' quarter below previous estimates. An English journal which is looked up on as authority in grain statistics gives these conclusions a* the result of its inves tigations, and they are not probably far out of the way. The supply in England from Russia, it is stated, will bo very j much below the estimates heretofore given. Estimates carefully prepared of the amount required before the new crop | comes into market, place the figures at ' 54,000,000 bushels, and for the bulk of | this amount England looks to the United I States. There is no doubt hut that this country can supply the needed grain. Al- j though the amonut in store at the prinoi- , pie shipping points is considerably below the corresponding period of last pear, still j it is probable that there is no more than the usual quantity of wheat in the country. The reasons for this are the high rates of freight and the severity of the winter. These have operated to pre vent farmers and small dealers from send ing their wheat to market. If this demand does not create a decided advance in prices it will certainly stiffen them somewhat and bring out the remnant of last year’s crop which has not yet been marketed. Wheth er a material improvement will take place in prices before harvest will largely depend upon the prospects of the growing crop. Selecting Seed Corn. A correspondent of the Maryland Far mer, writing from Baltimore county, over the signature of “ Plowman.” says:-—lt is my practice to Select from stalks of medi um height, bearing one large ear, the tops of which are bent down for a mark that they are to he shocked separate from the crop. When time permits, pull off the ears, strip and hang them up in a dry airy loft. Previous to shelling or planting, make a second selection, having an eyq to the grains being regularly set on the cob, and the sis© of the cob. Cat off 11 inches from either end of the ear, which will cause the grains of the succeeding crop to he more uniform. If the land was not plowed late last autumn to expose the larva of the cut-worm, the seed ought to be soaked in fish or meat brine over night, and rolled in gypsum previous to planting. When the plants are fairly up, (as an ad ditional antidote against the worm,) strew over them slightly, 5 parts of dry wood j ashes and 1 part each gypsum and salt; or if the land is rich enough and does not re quire these stimulants, a desert-spoon full of salt to each hill will be sufficient. Note.—Seed corn obtained east or north of Mason k Dixon’s line will not produce an average crop in this or a more southern latitude short of the third year. | A Splendid Opening.—We learn j that Mr. MeMurray the great corn ean i ning merchant, of Frederick, Md., is thinking of Staunton as a place for a branch |of his business. [We would be glad if he would try Westminster, also.] lie com menced in Frederick, after the War, and now cultivates 1,200 to 1,500 acres around that city and on Monocacy River, in sweet early corn, which he preserves and puts up, besides buying large quantities from others. He makes bis own cans, packing boxes, fattens large herds of fine cattle on the shucks. Ac., raises tomatoes also fur canning and gives employment to nearly 500 persons —the women and children looking on him as their greatest benefac tor.— Staimlon, Vo. Spectator. Caution to Farmers Who Take Stock to Pasture. To the Kdiiort of the Maryland Farmer . According to a recent decision of Judge Garey, of the Court of Common Pleas of Baltimore city, farmers taking horses or other kinds of stock to pasture, are re sponsible for the value of the same to the owners, if they ire stolen or stray away, t recently made a test question before the said Court, and was mulcted fur all charges, and the value of the horse stolen. I feel it a duty I owe my brother far mers to inform them as to this decision, as a warning, and that they may avoid the responsibility by specific agreement in the future. SaHCEL SfTTON. St. Dtnnit, Baltimore Co., Md. Aveuage Yield* in Illinois.—The j secretary of the Butler Agricultural Club lin Montgomery county, Illinois, reports that the members raised, in 1872, products !as follows; Total acres of wheat, 405; j products, 6,304 bushels; average yield, 13J bushels per acre. Acres of coni, I 708; product, 30,745 bushels; average per acre, 43J bushels. Acres of oats, 326; product, 16,400 bushels ; average per 1 acre, 50 4-13 bushels.

The New York Local Option bill re JJusiutss jLflfairs. The Darien Ship Canal Two Government expeditions have been sent out under Captain Solfridge, 11. 8. N., 1 to explore route for it ship canal across j the Isthmus of Darien. On the first ex- j pedition in 1871 Captain Selftidgo found ; the Atrato to be a magnificent river, and ; at a distance of 180 milea from its mouth | capable of floating the heaviest shi|ia, oven at ita lowest stage. This river, in ita course, eumes within a few miles of the Pacific coast, and the object of the second expedition was to find tho beat route for a canal to connect with the rivers running into the Pacific. It should be remembered that the Atrato runs northwardly into the Gulf of Darien, and that the City of Quib do, on that river, is the point near which it was proposed that the canal should com mence and connect with tho Pacific by tho Napipi river, running aouth. This line by the Napipi route, as surveyed by the ex pedition of 1871, required a cutting of thirty miles with a tunnel of five miles. The cost of a canal twenty-five feet deep by this route was estimated to amount to $85,000,000. On his second expedition of 1873. Capt. Solfridge commenced on the Pacific side, and, running up the Napipi till he reached tho Doguado, a large tributary of that stream, surveyed a practicable route to tbe Atrato. On this new line, following up ' the valley of the Doguado, the length of the canal has been reduced to twenty-eight I mites, that of the tunnel to three miles, of j the cutting to eight miles, and the cost of | the work to $70,000,000. Twenty-two 1 miles lie through an almost level plane, in i which nine locks, with moderate cuttings, | will be required. The engineering difficul , ties are presented within the remaining . six miles, and this obstacle remains to be i conquered. .Vs the expedition was about concluding j its labors, a Peruvian Commission for the , examination of a canal route sailed from Panama for the purpose of co-operating 1 with Captain Sclfridge. It is understood i that the Government of Peru will under- I take the construction of an intcroceanic | canal, provided there can be found a line ( the estimated cost of which will not cx j coed $70,000,000, and as the Napipi and I Doguado route appears to fulfil this con- I dition, it is believed that the question may j arise whether Peru or the United States ! shall build and control the Darien Canal. 1 The Power and Duty of Journalism. | In a recent sermon Henry Wan! Beech- I cr said: | “He who to-day sits in the editorial I chair, sits second to none. In all the world of influence it is fur him to discrimi nate between right and wrong, and to be always on the side of truth, justice, purity and manliness. And if the editorial chair co-operate with all good men in the great professions and trades in the land; if we take hold of hands for a better sentiment and for a noble purity, wc shall raise the standard of character for young men so that we shall be proud of their honor, and their honor shall bo in their truth and in their honesty. So far as our knowledge extends, the press throughout America is faithfully endeavoring to perforin its high mission. The people have no truer, more disinterested or vigorous representatives than they possess in the journalists of tho land. The press is the most trustworthy exponent of popular rights, and in the hour of the country's shame the people turn with increased confidence to the journal ists who defend their interests and de nounce their wrongs.'' We candidly believe that it it wore not for fear of the press the corruption which develops itself in so many official places would he tenfold greater, and show itself with more effrontery. But the wholesome influence of the press is a harrier of offi cial crime and political corruption, and os the people come to understand their re presentative they will increase their own safety by enlarging his powers. V\ hen the American pres* becomes what it is fast becoming—the undaunted antagonize of wrong in evety shape—the American gov ernment will emerge from the foulness which now in part surrounds its legislative brauch and become the stronger by reason of the stern lessons tho governing classes were now learning. The people are now realizing that when the press heretofore pointed to political corruption the truth was uttered; and, hereafter, when the press denounces such wrongs, influence of such denunciation will be felt in the Imllot boz. To the journalist, therefore, and not the legislator, will the people rely for a representative that is entirely honest. — Mtmphit Appeal. Condition or Tim South. —Wc have long heard complaints from various por lions of the South of the dishonesty of ' the negroes, hut the following extract from ’ a letter sent by a gentleman who resides ’ in Arkansas, to tho Department of Agri culture, shows the enormity of the evil ’ in a particular instance: r “My apples are all stolen by the negroes, ' so that I never have any to put up for r winter. My hogs have long since been 1 stolen. I have cut down my peach r orchard. If I plant a garden and have a nice lot of vegetables, they are all stolen. If I put up a nice crib of corn, the lock is , forced and my corn is stolen. So I have come down to cotton, and plant just enough corn to make my crop." 1 Women as Pall Bkakfbk—A cere 5 mouy of singular interest was witnessed I* recently in New York, at the funeral ol Miss Mary Kllen Kerr, at the Chnrch oi the Immaculate Conception. She was I 1 member of tbe Church Modality, and thi 1 funeral was conducted by tbe ladies of thi * I society. The procession, composed entire | ly of ladies, moved from the house of the , deceased sister in Hast Fourteenth streci Ito the church. Six young ladies as pall j bearers bore the casket, preceded by twe i ladies who carried tho society's banner i A large multitude followed the processioi ' | into tbe church. i i The primary cause of tho death of Chie • j Justice Chase was the bursting of a blow 11 vessel in the brain while be was aflecp and the immediate cause compression o the brain resulting therefrom.
