iiorcd with lewn—Whent and Railroads--
Wheat Capacity or tbe Northwest.
Acklr.y, loica., Aug. 5. —After dinner
George Wells talked with mo two hours
all about wheat-growing in the Northwest,
'f hen, as 1 knew his mind was out there in
Ihe middle of that quarter-section where
his men were threshing, we went to the
ham for my horse. On the way in to the ,
station, I found it for my interest to review
all he had saitl in those "two hours and fix
every important fact in memory or on my
note book. It is not likely that many men
in the Northwest know more about wheat
than a farmer who has engaged to lay down
at Chicago 50,000 bushels from riis own
acres.
Tribune —As you make spring grain your
main crop, lam a little surprised that"you I
did not go lfiO miles north of this into ;
southern Minnesota, where nine-tenths of i
ihe wheat raised grades No. 1 at. Milwau
kee.
Farmer —l know the Minnesota wheat is '
a little plumper than mine, and brings a
rent or two more. But mine always grades
No. 2, if not higher, and there are other
advantages that I should let. slip if I go
much north of this. If you go up to Aus
tin or Owatonna or Mankato you will find j
the soil in the main like this, and the cli- !
mate better suited to wheat; but Minne-:
sota is going back in her wheat crop much !
faster than lown, and 1 think I know the I
reason of it.
Tribune—l should be glad to give our !
readers the benefit of your views on the
subject. Thousands are looking toward
.Minnesota as well as lowa for farms.
Farmer —The bottom fact, which every- |
t>ody should understand who proposes to j
become a grower of wheat in the West, is |
this: When an acre of our average rolling j
prairie is broken, and the turf so rotted
ihnt a harrow will tear it, there is a surface
good the first year for about 20 bushels of
wheat, and 20 more the next year. Then
I think a crop of corn should go in. If
you keep right on with wheat, wheat,
wheat, the land will get very foul with
tfeeds; we have something that we call
colts-tail that is worse than the rag-weed
on Eastern farms, and it is so rank that it
almost takes the land on the fourth or fifth
year. My plan as to rotation is one-third
of my land in grass, one-third com, one
third white grain. I have more than that ;
proportion in wheat now, but I am getting ,
in tame grasses every year, and propose to |
Winter one-fifth as many head of cattle !
and horses as I have ucres. On this place !
my proper stock will be 1,200 head. |
With such a stock as that I can keep my i
wheat fields up to 20 bushels an acre and j
over. If I were in Minnesota I could I
make more wheat and better wheat at first,
but my crops would fall oil" for want of ro- i
mtion, stock and manures.
Tribune —Then you do not call this black
prairie soil inexhaustible ?
Farmer —My farm is just as good land
..s there is in fowa, and I know it runs
down just like the land in Ohio, where I >
have farmed, and faster than a farm of ISO
acres that I still own in Wethersfield on
ihe Connecticut liver.
Tribune —Do you say there is land in
i 'onnecticut better than this rolling prairie?
Farmer —Yes ; the alluvial soils of those
river bottoms will hold up aud give good
.■rops with little or no manure longer than
•diese Western uplands. The truth is, that
when a prairie sod is well rotted the »./.. at
is pretty well out of it. Your yield will
drop off to 15 bushels per acre, and then to S
12 per acre, and lower than that, if you
don't rotate. Two or three years ago Mm- ;
uesota was good for 20,000,000 buaheli. j
This year her crop is estimated at 1,100,01X1 I
icres, with a yield of 12 bushels per acre,
if .1,200,000 bushels. Considering tbe great j
■ plantitlea of fresh land she has under the
plow, the average of Minnesota ought to i
ibe from 1S to 20 bushels.
Tribune —ls not rotation and manuring ;
as practicable in Minnesota as it is here?
Farmer —Not quite as much so. You I
will find it a fair corn country as far north |
as the road that inns west, from St. Paul j
toward 'be Pacific, but north of the 41th :
' legree the summers are short and cool for
corn, ami there is less money in stock, bc
<*iise it takes so much to carry animals
through the winter. Still there is a great
deal of money iv raising spring wheat in I
Minnesota. If they can get labor at as
moderate rates as we can, they can make a
bushel of spring wheat for 20 cents.
Tritiu/ie —A bushel of wheat for less
than 20 cents! I hear men complaining i
that there is no money in wheat at 70, the j
price to-day at the elevators along the road. !
Vau must cipher by a different arithmetic. ;
llotr do you make it out ?
Fanner —l will take that ipnii ter-seclion i
lam now thrashing out ami give you the j
figures, J call the , labor of a horse his i
actual cost to me oil the farm, counting !
iiay at $0 to $10 and oata in proportion.
My men I hire at an average cost of $20 |
jier month and found. S_f in calculation 1 ]
call the cost of a day's work $1. The seel
Ibr ICO acres, at $1 it bushel, will amount j
i 05240; the drilling and har/owing cost!
me 840; harvesting, seven hands to a ma- j
.hine, lfi acres a day, 10 days' lat-'or of;
M>ven men, $1 a day, s"0; threshing, four
cents a bushel, 3,000 bushels, $120— total i
*500. I shall have about 20 bushels per '
iicre on that quarter, say 3,000 bushels, at ;
cost in seed and labor of $500. That is, j
$. in seed and work gives me 30 bushels of
wheat; at $1 a bushel this is $30 worth of ;
wheat. One dollar in labor gives six
bushels of wheat. One-sixth of a dollar— |
!'!§ cents—makes my bushel. So, if 1 sell j
:it 20 cents, I do not lose labor and seed ; j
1 lose my interest and wear to teams anil :
tools.
Tribune —l'nh-.s jour calculation is quite j
amiss, there is a good deal of money in I
ivlieat at present nrices.
Farmer —Certainly there ia. Funning !
on these rich, fresh lands, that can be had ',
tit $10 an acre near railroads, is a splendid ;
business for a man that calculates right. —
Hut the prairie fanner must go in for big ;
idgures, his policy must be tight at the |
•«ing, and he must let the eggs and chick- ,
ens and green peas go. Not but he can j
have thousands for his own use, but when j
it comes to an income it must be from j
'.rain, and from fat hogs ann beeves.
—I_awreuce Minor, the colored man re
cently appointed to a Professor's chair in
Alcorn University, Miss., by the Governor,
although at the time a porter on a Missis
sippi river steamer, is a man of remarkable
'parts, possessing an education in every way
qualifying him for the duties which he is
called upon to assume. His career has
been one of great vicissitudes, illustrating
the inequalities of servitude iv the days of |
slavery. While yet a slave in Louisiamia,
Mr. Minor, through the kindness of his •
master, a wealthy planter, received from j
the hands of a private tutor the rudiments ,
"f an English education. Upon the death
of U| owner, by a provision in his will, '
Lawrence, together with a brother and sis- j
ter were manumitted and a fund appro
priated for their education. (Joining North,
in 1846 Lawrence went to Oberlin aud en
tered College, but owing to a difficulty with
one of the faculty ho failed to graduate.
In IHSO, returning to the South, he taught
school for several years m New Orleans.
Marrying in that city, he remained in the
I South until the outbreak of the Rebellion,
• when he returned North, and has .inc.
s been on the Western river., as a porter on
. various boats. For years ho has been
- known and noticed as a man of superior
attainments. His appointment is com
mended warmly by all acquainted with his
I culture and ability.

'I —11 was commonly believed before its
' t sudden collapse that. Tammany aspired to
'■ the control of the national treasury, and
| I was craftily laying its plans to thnt end. j
!We have evidence now teat this was no idle I
| fear. As a pttrt of the scheme it appears
' j that Tammany was securing an interest in
i ; newspapers at various points, designed to
' [ promote its interest. Tweed owned a large I
; share iv the Washington Patriot —a paper !
• which pretends to be the national organ of j
the Democracy. He was also a partner in
1 other papers, like the Elmira Gazette. Last !
! year a Georgia paper suddenly run up the j
' name of I Governor Hoffman for President, i
' This was doubtless due to the same inspi- j
1 ration. It has been said that the people of I
other States had no interest iv the Taiiiinii
\ ny light. These facts now coming to light i
most effectually answer that pretence, Ilad I
j Tammany not been broken down, it would
' have controlled the national contention of
1 its party, and made a desperate effort to
'. fasten its sway upon the whole country.
—The monstrous outrage on law, liv
' | inanity, and order, perpetrated by the
1 I Spanish volunteers at Havana, will once
j more call the attention of the civilized
' world to the unhappy condition of Cuba.
I Tha volunteers have gradually gained pos
• i session of the island, and now administer
; j affairs by mob law with military machin
' i cry. Spain has virtually abdicated, and
' I though the Captain-General made a show
of refusing to give up to the ruffians the
> I students who had desecrated the grave of '
j Q«n. Castafion, he surrendered at a more i
1 i urgent demand. It now stands on record
[ j that this brutal soldiery took from the civil '
I authorities eight of lliese boy-students,
\ | condemned them at the drum-head and put j
1 them summarily to death. This atrocious I
" murder is more conspicuous than many !
J that have preceded it, but is not a greater .
outrage, it onght to raise an inquiry 1
J among other nations as to the propriety of \
intervening in the interests of humanity.
1 Civilization cannot look on calmly while
these lawless butchers rule Cuba with a
I i bloody hand.—.V. 1". Tribune.
—Iv an article on the "Civil Service" the
' | Rochester Democrat says: "We confess,
' | also, to a conviction that the public service ;
| can be satisfactorily performed by Repub- ■
j j licans; and the idea of admitting Democrats |
' to competition with them is entirely re- [
[ i pungent to our notions of party policy as I
■ j well as to our conception of the public in-!
j terests. While we would not appoint an !
, ! incompetent Republican, we consider it the !
. I height of folly not to give the preference to
j competent ones. Let common sense die

I>R. JOHNSTON,
. Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lol- . I
I don, graduate from one of the most eminent Col- ,
| jpges in the United States, and the greater part '
ot whose life has been spent in the hospitals of j
I London, Paris, Philadelphia and elsewhere, has | 1
effected some of the most nstonisldng cures ;
that were ever known; many troubled with ring- |
ing iv the head and ears wheu asleep, great :

j sometimes with i derangement of the mind, were j >
cured immediately.
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. j J
Dr. J. addresses all those who have injured ;
i themselves by lmpro]>er iudulgencies and soli la- ] _
ry habits, whli h ruin both body and mind, unfit- j
ting them for either business, study, society, or j ..
marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholy ef- j
! fecte produced by early habits ef youth, via: [l
! Weakness of the Hack and Limbs, Pains in the '■ 1
'■ Head, Dimness of Sight, LoM of Muscular Pow- | 1

Irritability, Derangement of the Digestive Func- j 1
lions, General Debility, Symptoms of < 'oittfamj*- : 1
; Uo:i
MENTALLY. 1
The fearful effect* on the mind are much to be
| dreaded. Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas, c
. Depression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion
:to Society, Self-distrust, Love of Solitude, Timid 1
, ity, 4c, are some of the evils produced. <
! Thousands of persons of all ages can now judge t
j what is the cause of their declining health, loosing
their vigor,' becoming weak, pale, nervous, and
emaciated, having a singular appearance about 1
the eyes, cough and symptoms of consumption. 1
YOUNG MEN \ *
i who have injured themselves by a certain prac- ;
j tice indulged in when alone—a habit frequently | 1
i learned from evil companions or at school, the r 1
effects of which are nightly felt, even when j 1
asleep, and, if not cured, renders marriage im- {
possible, and destroys both mind and body— j J
should apply immediately. *
What a pity that a young man, the hope of Ids
country, the pride of his parents, should l»e I
) snatched from all prospects and enjoyments of j i
| life by the consequence of devlntiug from the ! t
! path of nature and indulging in a certain secret
habit. Such persons, mc:it, before cont*»mpla- i
ting I
MARRIAGE,
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most i 1
ueeessary requisites to promote connubial hapi- ! f
nese; indeed, without these, the journey tlirough j
1 life becomes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect i *
I hourly darkens to the view, the mind becomes j J
I shadowed with despair and filled with th; mcl- j 1
i ancholy reflection that the happiness of anothei J 1
becomes blighted with your own-
When tlie misguided and imprudent votary of _
pleasure finds he has imbibed the- seeds of this i
painful disease, it too often happens that an 111-
Umed sense of shame or dread of discovery de
ters him from applying to those, who, from edu
cation and respectability, can alone befriend him.
IHe falls into the hands of ignorant aud designing !
pretenders, who, incapable of curing, filch his j i
\ pecuniary substance, ke*>p him trifling month »
j after month, or as lone as the smallest fee can be ! *
! obtained, and with despair leave him with ruined ;
j health to sigh over his galling disappointment, or |
Iby the use of that deadly poison Mercury, hasten !
! the constitutional symptons of the terrible dis- : I
I ease, such a* Affection of the Head, Throat ] .
| Nose, Skin, etc., progressing with frightful rapid- j j
] ity till death puts a period to his dreadful suffer- ; ;
