A statement which has been issued
from the Department of Agriculture,
Kays that the returns of the 1st, instant
to the department shows aa increase in
the wheat crop of the United States of
31,000,000 bushels since 1879. The
yield per acre is somewhat less, but the
incivaan in urea sown more than counter
balances the loss of vield. In the States
ii Minnesota and California, the yield
per acie, as well as the average, shows
an increase. The reports from the cot

than lust. In the States of North and
South t'arolina, Georgia and Florida, the

this poem is not devoid of genuine merit. In

At the eoming sessinn of Congrem it
is said an H&rt will bo made to suspend
the navigation laws for a period of sever
al years that foreign built ships may be
registered and sail under the American
flag. The idea is to make an experiment,
for a stated time, with the view of per
manent legislation for the restoration of
our carrying trade. It is urgdthat the
folly of endeavoring to foster ironship
hutldtng in this country lias been demon
strated; that the Uritish possess too
many advantages in this particular to
mi tier any from competition in this coun
try. At the present time the British are
building one mile of vessels for the North
Atlantic trade, several of which were or-d-red
by and will be owned br Ameri
cans, but. will sail under the British llag.

never been as warm in our admiration of

sufficient regard for him to deyrecatc the

We would suppose that it would be ex

the manner in which his friends are do
