Tins jHamwhunctt IHoiitjliman (whoso niH'iiriiiii'u among our ex changes vu gladly welcome) comes (o UN with an editorial under the above caption, wliich is almost it wail over tliu fact that tho tidu of omigra tiuu f'roiii tliu old world, :ih well as that from New England, "sots to ward (ho West," leaving tint old homesteads of the oldest Anglo American settlements with nothing hut the hands of old men to till them, and leaving, as a eouseiiieueti of this state of things and tlm dillleulty of hiring clleicnt farm lalior, " farms for nalo in vast numbers of instances." Tho PloiiifiiiitiH wisely, as a eulti- atorof Now Kngland interests, in vites tlm attention of such steady, eareful and industrious classes of em igrants as tliu Scotch, who are in tolerably easy eireunistanees, with a family of children," to the oppor tunities thus ottered for getting homes, surrounded by " all the appli ances of civilization," at eheaper rates, all things considered, than they ran get them "at the extreme west." We of the Pacific slopo elaini to ho "'the extiemo west," and notwith standing wo acknowledge that the Scotch, Irish or German emigrant iMimTd'nfriniui "otloto civilization " and relies of feudal despotism of his native country to settle upon a New ' Kngland farm, wo desire to show such j a ono that ho would in tho end fare ( hotter by coming further.

Here all these classes of immigrants will liud climatic conditions similar to those they leave behind them. Here they will liud men of their own coun try who have preceded them; here they will find them settled, with the freu spirit of tho wido West circula ting around them; where they have I no need to "count tho mouths they , .,.,,, ii -. -ii i i have to Iced," and where it will boi , .. , yiy many yea re oeioio sucii a ipics' lion will bo necessarily raised.

Were it not that the agitation of tho question of war with England is a matter of serious consequence to this country, it would bo highly en toi tabling to contemplate tho present excited state of the governing classes of tho Hritish people over tho rejec tion of tho Alabama ticaty by tho 17. S. Senate. This excitement is to us a sure indication that that portion of tho Ilritish people whoso feelings toward this Government were plainly expressed by tho sailing and action of tho Alabama, aro imbued with a wholesome fear of the power of a I people whoo Government they hate, and would ho glad to seo subverted. It is also a sine indication that the building, lilting out, maiming and sailing of a piratical vessel to prey upon a neighboring power, while pro- feosing friendship for that power, is fet to bo a wrong, the consequence; , ,. , .

Under these circum stances, it only remains for the peo ple of tho United Slates to choose the time and manner in which they will receive their redress; and it is our firm belief that tho longer wo can wait the mora ample will the measure of that redress be. As mutters now stand, tho Government of the United States may well afford to deal for givingly with its repentant individual enemies, and make them friends, while it is in a good situation to enjoy tho mortification and perplexity of those Governments which have liar--w.h- "sine iceiiiigs lowarns it. As matters now stand, wo are drawinc tho very life-blood of England's pros- pority from her. In ono short month (.May last) over thirty thousand cmi- r!Kn,".k,ft verpool, llve-sixtlm of thousand to one million of people, in order to redress oven sogreat a wrong as the Alabama cae ; and tho aggres sor is not in a condition to force a settlement upon terms distasteful to us.

Having read several interesting ar ticles in tho FAKMr.it on keeping cows, and tho results of the diflbrent kinds of food given them, I thought it would bo of some interest to the numerous readers of thu Fa km Kit to know the results of keeping a cow on roots, winter and summer. I have a small cow, live years old, from which wo have milked, in one year, fi,7f0 pounds of milk in ono year, and have made at tho rate of sill! pounds of nutter miring ttiat time. I no aiiove calculation is made fiom tho smallest quantity of milk given during the year. Sho gives at this time two gallons per day, and it is twelve months since sho had her last calf. I have fed her on cabbage, rutabagas and carrots, with tho following re sults : When fed on cabbage, sho gave the most milk, but tho least cream ; when fed on rutabagas, it increased tho amount of cream ; when fed on carrots, the amount of cream and but ter was increased, and tho color and flavor of tho butter was much better. I wonder why our farmers do not give more attention to the growing of roots for food for their horses and cattle, when they can raise, on one acre of good land, without manuring, from seven hundred to one thousand bushels of carrots; and on ono ncre of good soil, eight hundred to twelve hundred bushels of rutabagas; und mis win r.t a no many cows n five ! wes of any other kind of feed, and j " a good preventive against many of tno diseases prevalent among our stock in Oregon. Tho best kind of carrot to grow for stock is tho Long Orange, and the best rutabaga is tho Skirving's Improved. These uro less liable to rot, keep better lato in the spring. 1 had them in good keeping until the middle of April. E. C. Auaiu. A nitKAT exposition of textile fab rics, under tho auspices of tho Wool en Manufacturers' Association of tho Northwest, will bo given at Cinci nati in August next. This is ono of tho outgrowths of tho manufacturing enterprises which may bo said to bo but just commencing in tho great valley of the Mississippi. It is the beginning of a new system of labor, which will advance until the industry of that extensive region shall consume all its own raw material, and only scud out tho finished product to tho markets of tho world. Tho Pacific slope ought to be moving in the same direction. Our manufacturing com panies ought to form an association. Producers of raw material ought to form anothor. Tho two ought then to meet and confer frankly and freely as to tho best means of advancing tho general interests of woolen idan- utacture, for in that direction lie tho particular interests of both parties.
