Kxtraot from Speech of
HON. EDWARD BATE!,
Delivered nt the Rotunda, before the Young
Men'. Democratic Whig Association of St.
Louii, oi Saturday evening, Oct. 23d.
Reported for the Intelligencer, by E. F. Underbill.
Gentlemen, I am older than most of you, and
ome facts have come to my knowledge, which
may have escaped general observation. For a
good many years Mr. Calhoun was Secretary
of Vtr, and at that tim he was at the head of
the entire system of Internal Improvements in
the United States and so eager for them was he
that he took the entire superintendence and
control. He went to the Alleghany mountains
with brigade of engineers, to make reconnois
ances for the Chesapeake canal. He there
met with a party of Indians, I believe under the
charge of Capt. lito. H. Kenncrly, who was
taking them to their new homes, and who
introduced them to Mr. Calhoun as one of their
"Great Fathers;" and upon their asking him his
business, Mr. Calhoun said: "My children, I
have come upon a strange mission. I am look
ing for a good place to make the river run over
the mountains The Indians hung their heads
and were very mtlanclioly; and upon being ask
ed the reason, said "that they knew that most
of the white men were double-tongued and
vf ould He, but they had not thought that the
tongue of one of their Great Fathers " as fork-
ed." This circumstance was told at Washing
ton straightway, and it was resolved to send
them through New York by way of the Erie
canal, to let them see how rivers ran over Hie
mountains; and when at one point on the Erie
canal I forget the name of the place they
ailed for some miles upon a high embankment,
and saw fields and villages on either side of
them below, the old Chief said: "You may talk
to me as you will hereafter I will believe it

that Congress has not only the power under the

that it is also the duty of Congress to exercise

the words of the Father of his Country, to avoid
entangling alliances with foreign nations, to

lie I ore l close I will say a few words about
the candidates that are respectively before the
people. JMovr, fellow-citizens, it lias hardly ev
er happened since the days of Washington, still
less since those of Jackson, that any one has
been elected President in virtue of his personal
popularity. But there are reasons which should
induce every man to choose between the two
candidates to prefer one man over the other;
and he who does not exercise his own judgment
in this matter is no freeman. In the approach
ing contest between Scott and Pierce, men will
vote for the one over the other because they be
lieve him better qualified, and because they be
lieve the principles with which he is identified
are superior to those of his oppanent. And if
a man's reasons are of this sort he should act up
to them, it anybody expects .ne to denounce
General Pierce, here or elsewhere, he is mista-

uii. d.x ana twenty yenm ngn, i was a can
didate in opposition to Air. Scott, from the Boon's
Lick country; and in making stump speeches
round the country, I told them that Mr. Scott
was one of the cleverest fellows in the world
that he had served eight or ten years in Congress
and to my belief had done it to the very best of
his ability. And I never knew a man to lose
by rendering to a political opponent strict jus
tice and courtesy. Tremenduous cheering.
General Pierce. I have no doubt, is a gentleman;
man of character and standing of good me
diocrity of talents. And the fact of his having
slunMul from his horse in Mexico, I think has
nothing to do with his physical courage', though
it teems to me that he did not meet with the best
of luck, and was particularly unfortunate in dis-
playing Ins courage on the battle lield. Certain
it is, that by towering genius or discriminating
juJgiuent, he never won laurels in the halls of
legislation, though he has had excellent oppor
tunities for distinction. But I cannot, fellow-
citizens, admit that he is qualified to wield the
destinies of a mighty nation like this, and calm
the storms of international discussion. But of
General Scott, who has been selected as the can
didate of the Whig party, it can be said that his
ui rer lus been marked. His brilliant military
exploits, the intrepidity of his youth, the cool
and practicul wisdom that has everywhere dis
tinguished him, and his characteristic qualities

WHEAT, CHESsTsMUT, ETC.
Thcro has been so much said already in re
gard to wheat producing chess, that I would not
trouble you with any views of mine, in relation
to this very important topic, were it not that I
have acen in your paper, a communication,
written by Agricola, who seems to denounce the
opinion of many, that wheat will degenerate
into chess, as being a mere theoretical assump
tion, and not the resultof practical experience;
but to believe that Wheat, or any other grain
when sown, will produce entirely a different
species, is a thing that very few persons would
be willing to do, had they not some practical
evidence of the fact; and why is it that so many
farmers do believe, and are convinced, that
wheat will produce chess? Because they have
proven the fact by experience; they know that
they have sown wheat entirely free from chess,
and have found, in harvesting the same, that
their crop was filled with it. From whence did
it originate!' Was it particles of earth that veg
etated and produced this chess, or was it sent
with the rain from the clouds? If we deny that
wheat will produce it we have no other alternative
but to believe that it is produced by some au-
peruaiural agency, where
land was free frora
chess 4he preceding year.
Again, we see that where wheat has been
cropped by the fowls, or stock, during the win
ter, we have a luxuriant crop ot chess, w hile on
other parts of the same field there is none to be
t , i ' .i .i i .i i
iouiiu; anil again, wuere me Wheat lias lieen
winter-killed, chess will appear in abundance.
and none can be seen where the wheat escaped
winter-killing. These are undeniable facts,
and facts which I deem sufficient to convince
the most skeptical that wheat will produce chess.
I do not pretend to deny tliat chess will germi
nate, l believe that it will.
We cannot in the face of so many facts deny
that wheat will produce chess; yet there are
few amongst us who are philosophical enough
to account tor tho why and wherefore of this
degeneracy, still we know it to be a fact, and
therefore we believe it.
Another very important topic is being agita
ted among the farmers, relative to harvesting
wheat which I wish to touch upon. It has been
ascertained bv some that the proper time to cut
wheat, is before it is properly mature, that is.
while it is in what is called the dough state
Their motive in cutting wheat at this stage
of maturity, I believe, is to have fairer flour.
1 believe that it will, when cut on the green or
der, make fairer flour thai when permitted to
stand until properly matured, but the quantity
will not be equal. X nave touml, by weighing
the grains, that seventy-five well matured grains
is equivalent to one hundred and twenty that
were cut while in the dough state, both being ta
ken from the same field; the ripe ones being
procured from those heads, which by chance,
were permitted to stand alter tha ether was
harvested. Now, when there is so much differ
ence in the weight of such small quantities,
what Will be the comparative weight in a bushel
of each. It is evident that the loss which the
farmer saxtains, by not permitting his wheat to
ripen berore harvesting, is very great; and,
when wheat is cut green, it does not do well
for seed, ns the grains become shrivelled, and it
is by sowing these defective grains, that our
crops are ro frequently polluted with smut; for
I liud that by steeping the seed, previous to
sowing, and removing nil such grains as will
float, there will be very little, if any smut in the
wheat when harvested.
It is a custom ameng farmers generally, in
this section, to soak their wheat in blue-stone,
previous to sowing it, to prevent the production
of smut. Whether the bluestone has any agency
in preventing the growth of smut, I know not,
but, I am inclined to think, that the greater vir
tue consists in the removal, by swimming) of
those defective grains, which, if sown, will in
variably produce smut. Dollar Newspaper.

A statement bv Clarke &. Co.. one nf thm r.

" Uncle Tom's cabin," shows the popularity of
thut work in England. It snys :
An early conv was sent from Amur! il.-
latter end of last Anril. la Mr. Ilocrno in -..l.
lisher, and was offered by him to Mr. Gilpin,
late of Bishopjgnfe street. Being declined by
Mr. Gilpin, Mr. Some offered it to !tV Un-t
Vizetelly and by the latter gentleman it was
eventually purchased for us. Before printing
it, however, as there was one niht allowed fm-
decision, one-volume was taken horn In l. ..l
by Mr. Henry Vizetelly, and the other by Mr
Salisbury, printer of Bouverie street. The re
port oi me latter gentleman, the following morn
ing, to quotchis own words, was, "I sat up t ait

kept her awake, and that nhe, too, laughed and
shed a tear occasionally, I settled in mv mind
that it was a book which ought and might with
safety be printed."
Mr. Henry Vizetelly' opinion coinciJeJ with
Mr, Salisbury's J and to the latter gentleman it
was confided to be brought out instantly. The
week following the book was produced, and an
edition of 5,000 worked off. It made no stir
until the middle of June, although we advertised
it very extensively. From June it began to
make wav. and sold at the rate of 1.000 ner
week during July. In August the demand be
came very great, which went on increasing to
the 20th, at which time it became rjerfectlv
overwhelming. We have now about four hun
dred people employed in some way or other
upon the book, and about seventeen printing
machines, besides hand presses. The following
is a correct statement of sales : Illustrated
edition, 5s. Gd., 5th thousand ; original edition,
2s. 6d., 30th thousand ; Routledge &. Co., Rail
way edition, Is., 95th thousand; Routledge &
Co., People' penny edition, 30,000 weekly.
Thus about 150,000 copies of the work are
already in the hands of the public, while still
the weekly returns of sales show no decline.

Eadroad from Kansas te St Joseph.
We invite the attention of our readers to a
call made in to-day "s paper, for a meeting to be
held at Platte City on Wednesday next, to adopt
measures to secure a railroad from Kansas to
St. Joseph. The purpose is to have a memorial
to the Legislature, prepared in time to be pre
sented to the people for their signatures at the
Presidential Election. The time is short but it
is necessary that prompt measures should be
adopted before the meeting of the next Legis
lature, as movements are in ugitation elsewhere,
taut will make it next to impossible to obtain
the Road unless we make a vigorous effort at
the approaching session. Weston Reporter.
Speaking of the wreck of the Atlantic, the
Oswego Journal says: That Mr. Green is
now constructing in Buffalo, a new sub-marine
armor, which will enable him, if necessary, to
remain under water two hour, at the depth of
the wreck, 162 1-2 feet, which will avoid the
repetition of frequent asoeuts. . The same paper
adds the following interesting facts :
Mons. Maillefert has made some curious ex
periments to ascertain the preamre of the water
at the depth or one hundred und sixty feet. An
empty junk bottle, corked and sealed air-tight,
sunk beneath the surface at the above depth for
sevan minutes, takes in by some phenomena un
explained, a large quantity of wuter.
A piece of iron attached to a scale by a piece
of wire, weighing 18 lbs,, sunk at the same
lentil, loses 3 lbs and 1 oz. One may judge
from this the pressure sustained by a human
ng at the same depth. Air. u. is sanguine
that he can attach fastenings to the wreck by
whicli it can be raised. The diving of 162 1-2
feet below the surface is the greatest perform
ance on record, by 36 feet.

Measuring Cora in Crib. '
A. farmers frequently wish to know how to
estimate the amount of corn contained in a crib
or storehouse, we give the following rule rela
ting thereto, which may be considered as relia
ble: Having levelled the corn ao that it will be of
equal depth throughout, ascertain the length,
breadth and depth of the bulk, multiply those di
mensions together, and their product by 4, re
moving one figure from the right of this last
product. This will give you so many bushel,
and decimal of a bushel of shelled corn. If it
be required to find the quantity of eared corn,
substitute 8 for 4. and remove one figure aa he.
Example. For a bulk of corn in th Mr 12
feet long, 8 feet broad, and ten feet deep, there
will be 384.0 bushels of shelled corn, or 768.0
of eared corn. Thus, aa 12X8X10X4 3JU O
or 12X8X10X8768.0. The decimal 4 is used
when the object is to find the euantitv of ahull.
ed corn; because that decimal is one-half the
decimal 8, and it require, two bushels of ear-
corn to make one bushel of shelled com. Dol-

A New Styptic A physician of Rome
has recently succeeded in discovering a liquid
possessing so extraordinary power ot coagulat
ing blood, that if to a large basin containing this
fluid, tihe drop of the styptic be added, complete
solidilicution ensues, so that the basin may be
inverted without causing any blood to be lost.
The following is its preparation: Take eight
ounces of guin benzoin, one pound or ulum, and
ten pint, ut vvutir. Boil sli together, fir the
space of eight hours, in an earthen ware glazed
vessel, frequently stirring the mass, and adding
water sutucient to make up the original quantity
of that lost bv the ebullition, taking care, how
ever, to add tlie water so gradually that boliing
may not be suspended, The liquid portion of
the compound is row to be straiued off, and
preserved iu well-corked bottles. Albany

The ruins of ancient cities have long been
known to exist in several islands of the Pacific
ocean, the origin and existence of which, history
furnishes no account. In one of the Ladrone
islands, a group lying in latitude 16 dee. north.
and longitude 170 deg. east, some twe thousand
mile, from the coast of China, are the stupen
dotis ruins of one of these ancient cities.
1 he ineyurd Gazette, published at Edar-
town, gives an account of a visit to these rums
by (..apt. Alfred K. fisher, of the Nantucket
whale ship America. The .principal street was
three miles long, and the buildings all of stone
of a dark color and of the finest material. Near
the centre of the street ware twelve solid .tone
columns, near fifty feet in heihth, and ten feet
in diameter at the base, surmounted atone caps
of immense weight. From the principal avenue
other straeta diverge at regular interval, and at
right angles. The ruina of the whole city were
overgrown with trees of ancient and gigantic
growth, ine native innaoiianta, uor the sspan
