"Ma. Editor: My experience in the
cultivation of the Grape is pot extensive,
bat it is enough to convince me that no
more profitable orop can be raised. My
Concord vines but leasoir, in their fourth
year, bore from 80 to 40 bunohos'caoh,
averaging say 15 pounds to the vine.
This io at the rate of 14000 pounds to
the acre. ' If I bad had an aere in bear
ing I could easily have realized 10 cents
per pound at wholesale. Io fact they
would readily have brought from 15 to
20 cents at retail. Mr. Knox, of Pitts
burgh, sold Lis Concords at 25 to 35 cents
per pound and disposed of many tons at
those prices. His Dekwarea brought 50
oentB a pound. Ionas sold at (1,00 per
pound in the New York markets. This
was of course an extravagant price, but
the Iona is an extra grape and more diffi
cult to raise than some other varieties.
At the meeting of the Cincinnati florti-l
cultural fiooiety 8cpt. 22, 1868, Sicaats
elated that he had sold his entire crop of
lves seedling at wholesale for $27,00 per
100 pounds. Besides this he sold (o . a
grape-grower $1500 worth of propaga
ting wood, ' '' 1 , ., .,,

Tg raise grapes, Mr. Editor, requires' not
only some cash, but a great deal of cour
age and much good sense. If every avail
able acre in Ashland county wcro put in
grapes, there would be a market for the
whole; probably a better market than
there has been yet. If there wtje but

on the place, of rather indifforent fruit;
and I debated a Ions time with myself
whether I should plant a good siscd field
in apple trees or Dot. To plant o not to
plant, that was the question. The lost ar
gument in my ohain of reasoning ran
thus: "Apple's are now (1845) worth
from 10 to 12 oents a bushol. If I plant
a now orchard I shall in all probability so
overstock the market that I may have to
tako 5 cnts a bushel for my fruit ! for if

who would buy all the apples 7" .And so,

Mr. Butler then aaked unanimous con
sent to speak ten minutes.
Dir. bldridge expressed the hope that
the House would not bottlo up tho gen-,

Unanimous oonsont having been given,
Mr. Butler expressed bis infinite obliga
tions to the House for its kindness, and
alter speaking some, closed as follows :
If during the war the gcntloman from
Ohio, Bingham did as muoh as I, I
should be glad to reoognize that muoh
done, but tbe only victim of the gentle
man's prowess, that I know of, was an in
noecnt woman hanged .upon a scaffold, his
only victim id the war was one Mrs. !Sur

To which Bingham replied : Docs the
gentleman moan to say, by his sweeping
judgment, that it is also on tho hands of
those brave man who were constituted by
tne warrant ot your president, a court to
pronounos tbat opal judgment, without
whioh nobody could be excouted. Sir, I
repeat in the language of a man, the
latohcts of whose shoes tho gontleman
was not worthy to unloose, who said that
wo should patiently hear first, and con
sider and pronounce judgment afterwards.
In the language of the Lord nigh Chan
cellor of England, notwithstanding the
utterance of a synical poet, that he was
the greatest, wisest and of mankind, t
will say that, whether the blood of inno
cence is on my hands or not, I leave to

Mr. Butler called the a tteution of mem.
bers to tbe faot that Mr. Bingham had
revised and altered and materially ohanged
tne bloat reportnnr manuscript or the
personal debato between himself and Mr.
Bingham. Mr. Butler then laid on the
desk "Of members a printed pamphlet,
showing the report as written,-and the
report as printed. He characterized this
proceeding as most unfair, in defense of
his own assertion made tbo other day,
that Mrs. 8urratt was hung without evi
dence. Ho chanced John Wilkes Booth's
diary whioh showed all his movements
preparatory to the assassination of Lin
coln, whioh was kept from the knowledge
of the Court, and it now appeared it had
been spoliated, by having eighteen pages
of it cut out after it had got into tbe
hands of the Government. He said there
is still'remaining in tbe diary, a remarka
ble instance withia a few 'hours beforo
Booth's death, and quoted from memory :
''I havo endeavored to cross the Potomao
five times and failed. I propose to re
turn to Washington and give myself up,
and clear myself from this great crime."
tie contended tbat this piece of evidenoe
would have shown in his judgment. Tho
whole ease now shows - that Booth, up to
a certain hour, meant tne capture and
abduction of Mr. Linooln; and that be
ohanged his purpose aud rosorted to as
sassination, it Mrs. Surratt did not
know of this change, she would havo hod
no knowledge of the intended assassina
tion, and therefore oould not have been
If all the testimony bad been present
ed, we should have been able to pursue
the accomplices, and find out who it was
that changed Booth's purpose from cap
ture to assassination ; who it wsshatwas
to profit by the assassination, and who
would not profit by the eapture of Lin
coln ; who it was that' succeed to Linooln,
in ease the bullet made a vaoanoy.
: Mr. Bingham replied in the exoitement
and hurry of the time, that it so happen
ed that the report of my reply to the gen
tlemen was tho most Imperfeot report
ever sont to me of remarks made by me
in the House, and any gentleman may ex
amine it, and he will fail to find in its
corrections a single accusation that is not
by expross words, or by neoessary' impli
cation in the reporters' notes. ' I defy his
calumny (of what oharge be is complain
ing of) that I said he had condemned
without knowing or caring for evidenoe ;
and I say so yet, If he is the lawyer he
is reputed to be, then be is to be pitied
for coming here and arraigning his peers
for not consenting to admit the testimony
of a man accused, and made after the
faot. I defy him by an investigstion
which he dare to institute hero or any
where to show that any oommuniogtion
came into my hands purporting to be i
production of J. Wilkes Booth, that was
not made after foot, and long after the
faot. Is there any lawyer in Amerioa or
England who would say words and decla
rations of an acoused felon after the feet
is evidonce w'lioh the advocate of the
Government is bourd to admit in any
court j I treat with oontempt'and sooro
any imitation from any quarter that I or
my associate eounsol were under obliga
tions to adnjit any suoh evidence. The
oommon law the growth and gathered
wisacm ot thousand years excludes it.
Perhaps that great monument of wisdom
and learning is not equal to the incom
parable genius of the imoomparable hero
of Fort Fisher. fLauchtcr, whioh tbe
Speaker endeavored to suppress.
Dir. Uutler tried to get in a remark,
but Mr. Bingham would not let him, add
ing that the gentleman from Massachu
setts had no right to ask favors at hii
Mr. Bingham continued : T never saw
any memoranda by J. Wilkes Booth,
which indicated any plan or motive by
wo.ion ne was to carry out bis projected
conspiracy. . I never saw any such thing;
and 1 am not snrpnsed that the gentle
man would not let me see tho book which
he put into his pocket
- Mr. Butler again essayed to make an
explanation, but with no better result.
' Mr. Bingham said : No, sir j I do not

inspect the book on which he based his
oharge, he may now imitate the example

Fight Between a Rat Terrier
and a Swarm ot Unlit T la e
Doe Yananlsbed And Devour-
ed-Funeral ot the Victims of
The Milwaukee Sentinel vouohes for
the following remarkable incident : .
"Near one of our erain warehouses sit
uated on the river bank, large swarms of
rata b&vo been in the babit of feasting on
the wheat whioh has been scattered a-
n und. A few days ago a terrier getting
wind of tbe rendezvous, made an attack
npon a couple ol rats tbat bad ventured
too far into the open air. Seizing one in
its teeth, it shook it vigorously. The rat
squealed piteously, attracting to tho spot a
aozeo or more companions. These, -on
soeing the situation of affairs, joined in
raising the alarm. In less time than it
takes us to toll the incident, the ice
ouna was blaok with a swarm of rats,
numDenng several Hundreds. Tbe tern
er, alter dispatching the first victim,
charged into the swarm with the evident
determination of serving the remainder
in like manner. But for onoe a terrier!
was doomed to meet with fight from tbe
poor animals he had so long devoured at
pleasure, snd in a tries he was surround
ed on all aides bv a swarm of ferocious
brutes anxious to be aveozed f jr the
death of their companion. Then ensued
the most frightful soene imaginable.
Tbe rats b firmed around their adversary
and fastened their claws and teeth into
his flrsb. The dog, enraged by the pain
fought bravely, killing scores of his ene
mies in his contest for life. But the odds
against him were so great, and after a
sharp conflict, whioh lasted for about five
minutes, he was forced to succumb. - His
body was literally devoured by the rats,
mcy seeming to take a nendiah, savage
plensure in tearing their vanquished ene
my to peacemeal. Soarce a vestige of the
animal remained behind. 'The terrier
died game, however, for there were about
half a hundred rats loft upon the field.

or less injured. "
A singular instance of the kindness of
dumbanimals to their fellows was noticed
at the conclusion of the combat A num
ber of the combatants had been somewhat
lacerated ly the toeth of the dogs. Their
companions gathered in groups around
them, licked the blood from ther wounds.
and then tenderly carried them in their
teeth to their nests. The bodies of tbe
slain were as tenderly cared for. One bv

around them, and one of the number.
