A Department of Agriculture.
The farmers ol the country should
demand the immediate establishment
of a Department ot Agriculture
whose minister shall be a member of
With an array of less than 30,000
men there is a war Department; witL
a navy that is a navy only in name
there is a Department of the Navy.
There is also a Secretary of tht In
terior, of the Post Office Department,
of the Treasury, and of the State
but although Agriculture embraces
interests greater than all thesejothers
combined, there is no Department ot
Of the 50,000,000 of inhabitants in
the United States, 25,000,000 are en
gaged in agriculture pursuits. Of
the 900,000,000 of domestic merchan
dise exported last year over 700,000
000 was supplied by agriculture.
This country is essentially an ag
ricultural country. Vast as its pres
ent pioducts are the nation is only
in its infancy, for only about one
seventh of its arable land has been
If the money that is spent every
year in the War and Navy Depart
ments were spen in improving an
developing the agricultural interests
it would be vastly better for the
country. There are a thousand ways
in which agriculture can be benefited
by a liberal expenditure of money
There are experiments to be mad
with seeds,with crops, with farm ma
chinery, with transportation that
farmers cannot afford to make on
their indiviual account. But if they
were made by the government and
the results published to the world
every farmer could profit by them
Let farmers see to it everywhere
that Congressmen are elected who
will support the idea of establishing
and sustainnig a Department of Ag
ricultnre on a scale that shall put it
to the front as the most important
and influential branch of the Govern
on private property. These gentle
men also say that the shipment of
cattle on the hoof reduces its weight
and quality one-half before it arrives
in Chicago, besides which they have
to pay the same rate for horns, hoofs,
intestines, etc., as for the valuable
portions of the carcass. In conse
quence of these drawbacks, it is
urged that Texas beef has been com
pelled to rank low in the market
They expect to bo able to manufac
ture their own ice, on a large scale
and at a comparatively insignificant
cost for the supply of their cool storage-houses
and refrigerator cais.
If they decide to adopt the plan on
which they seem at present resolved,
Eastern consumers will certainly be
able to buy beef at a lower rate than
for the past few months.

Grading castor Beans.
At the meeting of the St.Louis
Merchants Exchange on the 21st inst.,
the following rules were adopted in
reference to the grading of castor
beara , vis: For the inspecting of cas
tor beans in bulk $1 per car; for in
specting castor beans in bags, the
bags to be opened and refastened as
before, two cents per bag; for inspect
ing castor beans at warehouses, mills
or elevators, when bulked or other
wise fifty cents per ear.
When ccRtor beans, upon inspec
tion, show over 7 per cent of impur
ites, then it shall be optional with the
buyerto reject such beans, or to de
duct one quarter of one cent per bush
el for cash one per cent or fraction
thereof of impurities over 7 percent.
AH castor beans containing over
15 per cent or more of impurities
shall be inspected "rejected".
All castor beans bought or sold un
der the rules of the St. Lnuis Mer
chant Exchange, (unless otherwise
agreed upon at time of sale) shall be
bought or sold upon a pure basis;
that is, free from dirt and foreign
substances and must grade prime, or
No. 2, to fill contracts.
Prime beans are such as are in
jured by fiost or rain, and weigh
not less than 42 pounds to the meas
ured bushel when cleaned.
No. 2 beans are such as are unin
jured by rani or frost, and weigh not
less than 38 pounds to the measured
bushel when cleaned, and shall be
valued at 2 per cent for each pound
below 42 pounds, less than the value
of prime beans.
Rejected beans are such as are
damaged by rain or frost, or weigh
less than 38 pounds to the measured
bushel when cleaned, and such beans
cannot be delivered by contract, but
must be sold on their merits, oy spec
ial agreement or by sample.
A southern agricultural paper ad
vises that as agricultural machinery
is new in the South, great caution
should be exercised in the use thereof,
and laments that many sad accidents
have already occurred. This was
true in northern States on the first
introduction of farm machinery there.
But machinery is no more to be re
jected on account of an occasional
accident than is the plow, or the axe,
for accidents and deaths have often
attended the use of both.
The latest report from the Agri
cultural Department as to the wheat
crop of 1882, says: "The aggregate
of winter wheat,as indicated by the
September returns, is about 360,000,
000 bubhels, spring wheat about 140,
000,000, or 520,000,000 bushels in all.
The threshing test may slightly mod
ify these figures. The first threshing
generally exceeded expectations;
later thrashing has, in many sections,
been disappointing. It is quite cer
tain that the percapta supply of
wheat will not be quite as largo as in
1S79 or I860.

the sum to $3,000,000.

that the surface mode is the better.
