From the Wisconsin Farmer.
ME. EDIoT :-Sir: An incident in Chemistry
me years since, first suggested to my mind
at Paints for common use might be greatly
proved in durability, and cheapness in cost,
nd I commenced- a series of chemical experi.
ents with a view of accomplishing these ends,
hich have been prosecuted at various intervals,
s my Professional labors would allow, up to
ast March, when I became fully convinced that
should, at no very distant day, succeed in my
At that time I turned my attention to Agricul
ure; purchased a large farm, and commenced
mproving it; and as I expected tu have con
-iderable use for paints upon my own premises,
renewed my elTorts to perfect my discoveries,
nd after a labor of nearly 500 experiments,
esting my preparations, and subjecting them to
on, rain, heat, alkalies and every otiler agent
o which paints could reasonably be exposed, I
Ave at last suceteded in producing paints from
aterials known and common i every commu
ity, which are admitted by good judges, to be
uperior in all the essential pualities which con
titute good paints,*ateast fur outside painting,
o those now inl general use.
My discovery, consists maiinly in the use of
nother fluid (a compound) as a substitute for
inseed oil, and other solids as a base, in the
lace of while lead, and substituting cheap, sim
le varnishes inl the place of those expensive
nes now in use.
I use, therefore, no linseed oil, none of the
-onmon varnishes, and no white lead. except in
producing a "pure white," and a few of the
liner tints closely allied to that color, which
constitute but a mere fraction of the paints in
The supesiority of these paints are as follows,
viz: They adhere better; dry quicker, without
"dryers;" are less afected by the weather; they
dispense almost wholly witl the use of white
lead, a mnost deleterious substance to health ;
are much simpler in preparation and cost much
less than those now in use.
All the darker colors, such as the various
shades of brown, red, and ochre and orange,
together with fawn, slate, chocolate. straw color,
&c. &c., which are becoming so fatshionable for
all outside painting, can be prodned at a cost
for materials, of about one-third the usual ex
penise of common paints; and the brighter colors.
as green, blue, red, yellow &c.. at an expense of
a trifle more than one-half the usual expense.
1in connection with these paints, I have sue.
Ceeded in producinig two varnishes, one approxi
mating to a light wine color, for varnishing the
darker colors, and one, transparent, for lighter
colors, both at an expense of not more than one
half time price usually dennded for varnishes.
Following up my experiments still further, I
have produced a wash for rough fenees and out
houses, at a mere nominal expense, which carn
easily be made any color to snit the user; is
hard and lasting, and can with difliculty he dis
tinguished from real paint at a distance of a
These discoveries it is obvious, will immense
ly increase the painting both in town and coun
trv, as soon as they become generally known;
first, because they diminish the cost (if malterials
an an average of at least one-half: and second.
ly, by the information which the discoverer can
convey upon a printed fools-cap page, every
(one who is so di-posed. can lrdue his own
materials, and prepare and apply hi< paints him
self, thus saving to himself one-half in cost of
1aterials, and all the painters's bill.
These discoveries will prove of especial utili.

fron any professional painter, and many of
whmare well niware of thre importance of pro

THE New York Sun rattles away in thle fol

prospect of what it terrms a quadrangulair quar
rel. " Come one, come all."
RUnfors OF WAn:s.-It miay so turn out that
we shall soon be enmbroiiled in war again. Mex
ico is using bad faith ini relation to tire Tehinan
tepee route; Greece ha~s outrarged us by her
treatment of Dr. King, our Comnsul art A thens;
Austria will be in agory when llulsenmann re
turns with his narrative of supposed wrongs,
and Franrce has the quarrels of Mlons. De Sar
teges with John Barney to avenge.
Thus we have a quadrangular qunrrel-but
wve are pirepared to meet the consequences.
Free transit over thre Isthmus rmust lie accorded:
Greece must render satisfution ; Austria mnust
put Hulsemnann's discomfits irn its pipe and
smoke them, and France muist learn to send
gentlemen over here to represent her. If guin
powder is to be burrned, nine-tenths of our
people will rejoice. We are a gna~rrelling nation,
and unless we are quarrelling with our neigh
bors we are fighting among ourselves.
THE Caors iN ANDERsoN DrsTRtCT.-The
Anderson Southern Rights Advocate says that
there will be an imimensely large crop of corn
raised in that District if thnere be good seasons,
and that, independent of them, the, supply will
be larger titan usual, the farmers having carried
into practice. this year, the lesson so often
sounded in their ears " plant more corn and less
cotton." Whieat, however, in some parts of (lie
District has been affeted by the fly, yet an
abunidant harvest is anticiparted.

Lovis NAro.FON AND CALTMFONIA.-A very
singular statement is made to the New York
Herald, by a New Orleans correspondent, who
signs himself David liolta, jr. It is to the
effiet that he has learned by passengers direct
from California, that certain movements are
being made by Louis Napoleon, for the seizure
of that land of gold. This statement is based
upon the allezed fact that the immense number
of French citizensp who have been sentenced
to exile and imprisonment in Cayenne, Guada
loupe, and other South American posaessions,
have not really been sent there, but have been
landed at different points in the Gulf; and on the
Pacific coast, and furnished with money and
other means to reach Sonora, where officers
have been placed to receive them. Quite a
large number of these persons, it is said, have
been seen at this rendezvous, and some of them
have let out the object of their collection there,
to be to take posses.,ion of the Ophir of the
West. The large number of French emigrants
who have been sent by the French government
to California, it is hinted also, are to take part
in this movement ; and the late letter of Louis
Napoleon to the President of Mexico is be
lieved to have a connection with the same ob
Tids whole statement strikes us n.4 a hoax,
but we chronicle it as one of the on dits of the
OUa MEXICAN RELTIONS.-We yesterday
gave the addresses made at the reception of the
new Mexican Minister. Speaking of this mat
ter, the correspondent of the Baltimore Sun
" The reception of the new Mexican minister,
Senor Don Manuel Larrainzar, was not all
honey and rose-water, as appears very plainly
from the wordy. yet ill-disguised burthen of his
speech, and the Anglo.American brief reply of
Mr. Fillmore. Mr. Lirrainzar, I rather think, is
not the best stlection that could hnve been
made for the purpose of settling difTerence.,
that may exist between the two governments,
lie having, by his acts as Mexican Senator, not
a little contributed to produce them. It would
have been more cnndid on the part of President
Arista to have sent us a person not yet coni
mitted on the subject, and, on that account.
more ready to listen and to learn to offer his
"The Mexican Government. I incline to be.
lieve, is very wroth against Mr. Letcher, our
present Minister in Mexico, and de.irous that
Mr. Fillmore should recall him. Mr. Fillmore,
I trust. will not yield to so presumiptuous a
request: unless he and Mr. Webster should
coie to tie wise conclusion to have no more
diplomatic agent at all in the city of the Aztecs,
but simply an Indian Agent.'
THE MIAINE Ltqcont LAw IN MAINE-flOW IT
Wo:Ks.-As an exemplification of some of the
moral effects oif the new Liquor Law, as it is
now working in Maine, the Bangor Democrat
states that ve'ry 1b. d liquors are sold at the city
:inetney there in large quantities; brandy is sold
for four dollars a gallon which could be sold for
one dollar, and pay a profit of twenty-five cents
a gallon. Liquors are indiscriiately sold to all
who apply for them ; all cnn obtain thein in
such qua tities as are desired, by merely saving
