How to Make the Earm Pay. "
To make the farm pay, propor
tionate to investment, requires
greater skill than most farmers
think necessary, and more than
many of. them possess. There is
more science required in successful
farming than almost any other
pursuit. Scientific farming is not
as necessary in new countries as in
old, but even there, method and
skill are requisite to success.
Agriculture in the South, since the
war, is nothing more or less than
a gigantic failure, even in Anti
Helium times; the secret of ap
parent success lay in the fact that
labor cost nothing .and could be
made available "neplus ultra."
Many farmers in the Northern
and Northwestern States, are just
There must be a cause for thiss,
what is it ? It is no deficiency in
soil, for our lands are as rich as
need be ; nor climate, for it is per
fectly congenial to the cultivation
of the numerous productions to
which our country is adapted. The
answer I think is in a nut shell,
"the want of diversity of pro
ducts." Unless prices are exhorb
itantly high, the exclusive cultiva
tion of one or two products is
never reuumerated ; there are two
reasons for this ;
First One hand produces more
by being enabled to cultivate a
Second Exclusive production
causes over production, and conse
quently low prices, also creates a
demand for articles not raised,
consequently high prices for the
necessaries of life.
Tobacco has almost ruined many
portions of Virginia, Kentucky,
Missouri and some of the North
Wheat is ruining the Xorthwest
crn States and Territories. Cane
culture is injuring Louisiana, and
Cotton has bankrupted the South.
The almost exclusive production
of cotton has brought upon us the
compound evils of cheap cotton,
high provisions, worthless labor
and exhausted land.
No farmer is making the farm
pay, unless he is keeping up its
fertility. There is nothing gained
by gathering a succession of crops
and wearing out the soil. Crops
will decrease from year to year,
and the land finally becomes val
ueless. To "make the farm pay," first
and foremost, keep up its fertility,
there are three ways of doing this,
rest, rotation and manure the first
adapted to all new countries,
where natural Summer and Winter
range is sufficient, land cheap,
and hay valueless, the second and
third are adapted to countries
where winter food has to be pro
vided for stock. There, instead of
rest, it is more economical to ro
tate with clover, peas, etc., turning
under the second crop as a fertil
izer, and saving the first for hay ;
the third is adapted to all coun
tries where land is extremely high
in such countries it is cheaper to
feed all produce and apply manure,
than to turn under green.
To "make the farm pay" every
farmer must be governed by the
circumstances that surround him,
he is compelled to invest in land
labor and agricultural implements.
Where land is cheap and labor
saving implement high, as much
of the former and as little of the
two latter should be used as possi
ble, this can be accomplished by
devoting the largest portion of the
farm, to summer and winter pas
turage, requiring little labor, ma
chinery, etc., and giving handsome
profit on investment; 1 think this
system well adapted to many por
tions of the Southern States.
Where land and labor are high,
labor-saving machinery is cheap,
as much ot these latter should be
substituted for labor as possible,
food should be cut and fed to
stock, as grazing is too wasteful
where land is an object, many of
the Northen States, furnish exam
ples of such localities where land
is extremely high and labor ex
tremely low. Ten hands can be
profitably employed on the same
area that only one would be re
quired, were the conditions re
versed as in the south.
To "make the farm pay" we
must deversify products, have a
variety to sell instead of raising
one or two and having a variety
to buy. It is cheaper to raise" all
the necessaries of life, (to which
our country is adapted,) than to
raise one or two products and buy

A Railway Ticket Good
Either Way. In the Superior
Court in Boston, a case of interest
to the traveling public was recent
ly decided. In 18G8, John A.
Coleman, of Boston, attempted to
ride from New York to New
Haven on a coupon ticket, which
was rejected by the coductor on
the ground that although it was
good from New Haven to New
York, it did not pass the holder
over the road in a train going in
the opposite direction Mr. Coleman
insisted that the company was com
pelled to receive the ticket as it
represented money paid for a pas
sage between those points, and he
was put off the train by force, re
ceiving snch injury as to affect his
health. He sued the New York
and New Haven Railroad Com
pany and recovered. The railroad
company obtained a new trial and
was beaten again. On exception
to the ruling of the judg, the de
fendants obtained a third trial,
which terminated in a verdict for
Mr. Coleman for

Death of the Double Baby--0ne Head
Outlives the Other 1
From the Boston Post, July 19th.
We mentioned in our columns
yesterday, the presence in Boston
of a most remarkable child, the off
spring of Joseph and Ann E. Fin
ley. It presented the remarkable
as well as unprecedented phenom
enon of two heads, four arms, and
two legs, and all upon a single
body. The girl for such was its
sex died last evening at No. 6
Bowdoin street. The first half or
head breathed its last at 5, and the
second shortly after 8 o'clock. The
many thousands in the Western or
Middle States who have seen this
marvellous eccentricity of nature
will learn its death with regret.
The child or children as it would
almost seem proper to allude to the
phenomenon had enjoyed excel
lent health from her birth, nine
months ago, until within two
weeks,-at which time one exhibit
ed signs of illness. This, however,
was but temporary. It recovered
and was bright and playful. Since
reaching Boston, a few days since,
the other or the other half was
taken sick and died yesterday af
ternoon, as already stated, "The
two portions of the" body were so
intimately connected that the
death of one rendered that of the
other inevitable. The spectacle
was equally novel, strange and un
paralleled. Upon one end of the
body reposed the head of the
dead infant ; upon the other that
of the. live one with its eyes still
bright and curious, and its lungs
in full breathing order. All that
medical aid could accomplish was
done, but it was found unavailing.
The children died in the presence
of its parents. The corpse presents
th e appearance of two infants
asleep. Apparently they escaped
the ordinary suffering incident to
death, for the countenances had
the expression of repose. The dis
position of the body is not deter
mined upon. Several of our phisi
cians were desirous last evening of
having it opened for examination.
It is doubtful if the parents con
sent. They reside in Morrow
county, Ohio, and live upon a farm.
They have other children, but none
have exhibited any unusual devel
opments. Nor can this' extraordi
nary departure from the laws of
nature be accounted for. In Phil

lons undertook to solve the prob

Good Place for
Georgia is a good place for crimi
nals. It appears that Gov. Bullock
has, during his incumbency, grant
ed 402 out of 403 applications for
pardons; among the olfences par
doned being fifty-six murders, thirty-one
manslaughters, thirty-six as
saults with intent to kill, and fifty
two burglaries. Bullock, of Geor
gia, beats Scott, of South Carolina,
as a friend of the lawless. It was
thought monstrous of the latter to
nullify the actions of the courts in
20S out of 48G convictions in one
year, by granting pardons to the
former number of convicts, but
Bullock's pardons throw Scott in
to the shade. These carpet-baggers
have fine conceptions of pub
lic duty. No doubt the criminals
pardoned by Bullock and Scott
are "trooly loil" and reliable men
at the polls.

A River Eunning up Stream.
The 15th of Jnly will long be
remembered as a gala day for the
inhabitants of Chiengoj " who on
that day enjoyed the curious and
novel spectacle of seeing a river
flow backwards, up against its
stream, and in the course of a few
hours changing forever its course
of centuries. Yet it was not the
novelty of this sight that gladden
ed the hearts of all Chicagoians,
but the prospects of the benefits
to be derived from this novel
rfmanipulation ot the Chicago river
in future. Ihis river, emptying
(formerly) into Lake Michigan,
has for many years been a great
source of annoyance to Chicago,
in consequence of intolerable and
unhealthy odors, caused by the
filth drained into it from the city
sewers, and in 1866 work was

dam which held back the water of
the Chicago river, at a height of
six feet above the level of the
canal. In about three hours the
dam had been swept entirerly
away, and the water had, fallen

by the black and offensive water
of the Chicago river proper, and
on the following day the blue wa
ter from Lake Michigan appeared,
resting for a depth of two feet
upon the denser water of the river.
At last accounts the current of
the river could be plainly distin-
guished running up at the rate
of a mile an hour, and the pre
cincts of Chicago were being rap
idly purified from the offensive
odors which had heretotore ema
nated from the stagnant and filthy
Chicago river. After the dam
was cut, along the line of the
deepened canal the approach of
the water was announced hy a

accumulated filth from Chicago
