At a recent discussion before

A fatal malady lias made its ap
pearance among the horses and mules
in Mississippi, in the shape of a small
hard lump or swelling, which gouGncs
itself to one part of the animals body,
but in the majority of cases appears
on the throat and breast, thence
spreading rapidly in every direction
all over the body. In some instances
a few animals have lived 2-i hours af
ter the fist swelling, but generally
six or eight hours is the outside time.
Various remedies have been tried, but
without success, although in a very
few instances the animals have re

Washington reports that there has
never been so favorable a season
for uniformly good crops, since the

There arc strong grounds for be
lieving that the barometer may yet
be made available in giving premo
nitions of storms. G. W. Hough,
Director of the Dudley Observatory
at Albany, stated at the last meeting
of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science that the ob
scrvations made during the past year
with his self-recording barometer
confirmed the opinion advanced by
him at a previous meeting that the
barometric column is restless during
a storm which may not be within sev
eral hundred miles of the instrument.
The number of minute oscillations of
the column, taken in connection with
the movement apparent to tho eye,
will indicate the comparative severity
of the storm. It is probable that
100 similar instruments, properly
distributed across our continent,
would record the atmospheric changes
with such minuteness that new and
important generalizations might be
A greater than Burke in this
country, our own peerless W ashing
ton, with a burden of public care on
his mind such as seldom weighed upon
any other person conscious,through
a considerable part of his career,
that the success not only of the
American Revolution, but of the
whole great experiment of republican
government, was dependent in no
small degree upon his course and
conduct, yet gave throughout his
life, in time of peace, more of his
time and attention to tho super
intendence of his Agricultural oner
aliens:, than to any other object. "It
will not be doubted,''' says he, in his
last annual message to Congress (th
of December, ) "that, with ref
erence either to individual or nation
al welfare agriculture is of pi imary
importance. In proportion as na
tions advance in population and oth
er c'lrcumstaces of maturity, this
truth becomes more apparent, and
renders the cultivation of the soil
more and more an object of public
patronage. Among the means which
have been employed to this end, none
have been attended with greater suc
cess than the establishment of boards,
charged with collecting and diffusing
information, and enabled by premi
ums and small pecuniary aids to en
courage and assist a spirit of dis
covery and improvement." On the
I Oth of December, 1799, Washing
ton addressed a long letter to the
manager of his farms, the last elab
orate production of his pen, trans
mittiiig a plan, drawn upon thiity
written folio pages, containing direc
tions for their cultivation for several
years to come. la seven days from
the date of this letter his own vener
ated form was ,; sown a natural body,
to be raised a spiritual body."
In tiijc Da uic. A gentleman up
in Yamhill stops his paper ' because
we go against the railroad." We
take pleasure ia assisting any enters
prise iu this State, when it is based
upon correct principle, and we have
only attempted to show that it was
not reasonable to expect that this
Yamhill railroad can be built by any
of our farmers, as represented by
l lie Courier. Wc shall not encourage
recklessncs in such a scheme as this
appears to be, though we lose every
subscriber in that famous region. Iu
a year or two we will reprint what we
now say regarding this matter, and
people then will wonder why they
could not see it as wc do.
Tt has been remarked that invent
ors of late times have scarcely ever
received either the pecuniary or the
laudatory compensation tint is their
due, and we find that often overlooked
and grossly-neglected are the orig.
inators and couceivers of the most
momentous plans of comfort and
utility. Perhaps, after a generation
or two has passed away, and the im
portance of an invention has caused
it to become universally adopted, the
curiosity of those benefitted may di
rect itself toward an examination of
the person who was tiie inventor or
discoverer of the means which have
produced their afiluence.

They are simpler in structu-e, and therefore
stronger, and less likely to be injured th in
the majority of foreign watches, which n're
composed of from liio to Sou pieces, while in
an .hl English watch there are n'.o'-'e tlnn

by you have been in use on this railroad for
several years by our enginemen, to whom
we furnish watches as part of our equipment
Tlisre are now soma three hundred of them"
carried on ur line, and we consider them
good and reliable time keepers, lndved I
'have great satisfaction in savin J)Vl)Jlr
watches give us less trouble, and' have worn
and do wear ninth longer without repairs
than any watches we 'nave ever had j0,,sc
