the present week. There aro, alsti,

were much interested last week in a
motlol of atonm plow, mIiowh i by
tho luvcutur, Mr. Wilkinson, a ma
chiirf'St engaged at the railroad ma
chine shop' of tills city. It is obvi
ously a very jxiwrrrwl contrivance for
(lie purpose Intended. The model
. liow 11 uh bears six plows,, but the
plau admits funnily well flee use ol
twlsKi. It is so arriingtsl as to turn,
at the jdeiisure f the conductor,
Mfmethlng like a side wheel steamer.'
i'or six plows the power estimated Is
t liatof eighteen horses, though twelve'
horse J low or would lie suiUcient in or
linary loose ground; hnt for Inrf or
prairie a greater power Is required.
'1'lils miwlutu. bearing nix plows, Mr.
Wilkinson says, will cost three thou
fand dollars, and would caslljr do the
plowing of xcvcral neighliorhoods, or
peiiiapii half a county. A plow uf
this kind would probably do the work
f 11 fly thousand dollars worth of
horses. Jt deserves the expenditure
of three thousand didlars and a trial.
