O ur A gricultural R ecord .—
The Commissioner of Agriculture de
clares that but a fifth part of the Unit
ed States is divided into farms, and
that only one quarter of this area Is
tilled. The trouble about our farmers
is that they have too much land,
whereas the average return per acre
could easily be doubled. Our agricul
tural labor-saving machines have ren
dered the planting and gathering of
crops incalculably easier than it was a
generation ago. It is after all upon
the rural industry that our prosperity
chiefly depends, and its progress marks
our advance in national wealth. In
1850 the numlter of improved acres in
the United States was 115,000,000 ; in
I860, 163,000,000 ; in 1870,188,000,-
000. The cash value of our farms was
$2,271,000,000 in 1850. In 1860 it
had risen to $6,645,000,000, and in
1870 to $9,262,000,000. It had in
creased nearly three-fold in twenty
years. The value of farming imple
ment in 1850 was $150,000,000, and in
1870 it had increased to $336,000,000.
During the same time the valuation of
live stock had advanced from $544,-
000,000 to $1,525,000,000. The same
ratio has ruled since 1870. This is far
better than any military records of
victories and their consequent fame,
and, indeed, it shows to better advan
tage than our commerce and finances.
With such a foundation of wealth be.
neath the superstructure there need be
no fear as to the future financial for

The introduction of the postal sys.
tern, as it at present exists in all coun
tries on the globe, has been credited to
England, when, in 1840, covers and
envelopes were devised to carry let
ters all over the kingdom at one penny
the single rate. The plan was adopted
through the exertions of Sir Rowland
Hill, who has been aptly termed the
“father of postage stamps.” It now
appears, however, that there is another
aspirant for the introduction of the
stamp system. In Italy, as far hack
as 1818, letter sheets were prepared,
duly stamped in the left lower corner,
while letters were delivered by special
appointed carriers, on prepayment of
the money which the stamp repre
sented. The early stamp represented
a courier on horseback, and was of
three values. It was discontirued in
1836. Whether Italy or Great Britain
first introduced postage stamps, other
countries afterwards began to avail
themselves of this method for the
prepayment of letters, although they
did not move very promptly in the
Great Britain enjoyed the monopoly
of stamps for three years and, though
the first stamps were issued in 1840,
she has made fewer changes in her
stamps than any other country, and
has suffered no change at all in the
