. There are now thirty-two indus-
trial-colleges itt; the United States
which have received the national
endowment made by Congress under
the act of July 2, 18C2. Massachu
setts has two, Mississippi two, and
ach of the other States one, except
Florida, Nevada, Louisiana and Vir
ginia, in which none have yet been
established. Twenty-six of these in
stitutions are in operation, and it is
expected that the remainder will be
opeisd during the year 1872. Twen
ty are established in connection with
other institutions, and seventeen are
independent colleges. Three hun
tfred and ten professors and assistants
are employed in giving instruction
to more than two thousand students
who are pursuing a regular course of
etudy in agriculture and the mechan
ical arts. Quite a number have al
ready completed the required course
of three or lour years, and nave re
ceived diplomas. A large portion of
thecBtudcnt3 are educated free of
expense for tuition. These institu
tions have excited the attention not
only of the States, but also of pri
vate individuals. Several gentlemen
and ladies of distinguished liberality
who had ia view the laudable object
of improving the industrial education
of the nation, have made liberal
donations for their support. .
Tobacco culture will probably be
come, within a few years, one of the
'jmoet important industries of Califor
nia. The experiments this year in
its production have been remarkably
successful. At San Felipe, where
the American Tobacco company is
located, the yield of tobacco has been
extraordinary larre. One patch of
Connecticut seed has yielded four
thousand pounds to the acre; liavan
na tobacco plants have yielded twen
ty-five hundred pounds per acre
The plants grow very large, and two
cuttings are obtained from them, and
from some plants 6ct out early, the
company have had three cuttings
The Ilavanna tobacco is said to exce
in quality anything produced in the
Island of Cuba. If the tobacco is
one half as prolific and of as good
quality as it is said to be, the cultiva
tion'of it will become in time one of
crcatest enterprises of the Pacific
coast, more valuable even than gold
mining or grain raising. .
It is a eintrular fact, that with nl
the practical 'progressive ingenuity
to which as a nation we are justly cn
titled, we are behind all Europe, and
vMT behinlold Eirvpt. in availing
ourselves of the very important ad
vnntfifrps of steam plowing. In the
cultivation of large tracts of land
steam plowing is undoubtedly more
economical than, the present system
Our Entrlish cousins fully appreciate
this. There are in England severs
different establishments, employing
nwr twelvo hundred men each, in
the manufacture of steam plows
The plan found to work best in Great
Jintain, is to have organized coinpa
tup who hire out their steam ma
chines and do the work by contract
nnd it is said that more than five
hundred steam plows are thus held
for hire. The success of the exper
iment is Droved by its working on a
tract of five hundred acres near Lon
don. So poor was the land deemed
that it would not bring a rent of
three dollars per acre, but after being
plowed by steam it brought a clear
profit of eighteen thousand dollars on
grain crops. Scotland also finds no
difficulty in making steam plowing
pay. In Germany the same mechan
ical force meets,with general approv
al, while further in the East the
Fachaof Egypt employs four hun
dred of t hea plows. In those coun
tries the lands arc old, and thorough
ly freed from all obstructions, which
may account for the extensive use
of the steam plows., Then, again, the
, land being held in immense estates,
the proprietors are enabled to pnr
chasc and use them with great econ
omy, when their expensiveness would
preclude small landholders from the
possibility of availing themselves of
their advantages, liut our western
prairies are naturally level and free
i'rom obstructions, and there seems to
be no existing reason for their not
being plowed by steam; other than
the renson which causes the Turk of
Asia Minor and the greaser of Mexi
co to-day to use a wooden plow in
stead of an iron one, to-wit thrift
less ignorance. The use of the steam
plow is no longer an experiment, as
the above English statistics prove.
It but remains, therefore, for our
western farmers to club together and
purshasc thorn, using them first fur
themselves, and then doing their
neighbors plowing by contract, mak
ing lnotcy by the operation. If the
members of a new colony, for in
stance, would combine and purchase
one of those plows, it will do more
plowing in a single d:ty than all the
men together, leaving tho laborers
free to perfect all the, other details
necessary to establishing themselves;
or private individuals might purchase
them and plow by contract, as is now
done, in manv instances, with reapers
and mowers, and almost universally
with thrashing machines The Free

The latest harvest of the season i- fit
- hand. It is the guthoringof materials
for a stock of manure for next year.
On this work depends the amount
which may be reaped from next .year's
rop. 1 f the supply of manure -an be
doubled the crops may ho increased in
more than equal proportion. It is not
the droppings of the stock alone that
constitute manure, there are many
materials that may lie gathered from
other sources equally valuable. Tho
groat bulk of the manure from stock
fonfistsof undigested vegetable fiber,
nsorudeaiwl unaltered in character
when it existed in the shape of hay,
straw, or fodder. But its mechanical
condition has been changed, and in its
present state of minute division it
more rapidly enters into decomposi
tion. That is the whole secret of the
value of animal manure. Kvery
fannerjhas in his control abundance
of material worth as much as the
droppings of hts cattle, which, if
gathered and uiincled with the more
easily decomposed matter, will furn
ish for his crops food of the richest de
scription. Of those the first in im
iMrtince is forest leaves. These rap
idly decay, and contain a much larger
proportion of the most valuable fertil
izers than the wood. While dry wood
contains from one-tenth of a pound to
four pounds in the thousand of potash,
dry leaves and young twigs contain
from half a pound up to ten pounds of
potash iu the thousand. Almost ex
actly the same relative proportion
hohis good In regard to the phosphoric
acideoutainHl in these suUUnee. A
thousand pounds of leaves of the
' mixed forest (trowths, common in the
United States, will yield nearly two
pounds of this mont Indispensable fer

ehould be raked together with hay

tected at the sides by a few boards, is
an excellent vehicle to haul them in ;

American Tobacco Planters.
At the banquet given in Liverpool
to Mr. Hager, editor of the New York
Tobocco Leaf, the chairman, Mr. T.
Cope, in proposing the toast, "The
Health of the American Planter,"
delivered the following humorous re
In my fancy the planter has always
been pictured as a kind of rood look
ing, burly, well-to-do, clear headed
man, given to good dirraers, and
rather fond of. shooting squirrels
Laughter. But one peculiarity of
or theirs undoubtedly is thattuey are
always on the brink of ruin. Never
was a period known when the crops
paid them, no matter how high the
prices go. 'i ney really appear to car
ry on business from motives of pure
phiianthonv. IKenewed laughter;!
Of course the first planting of tobacco
is always destroyed by some cause or
other. In this extremity the plant
ers borrow plants from their neigh
bors. I gather this from Mr. Hager's
paper; but I never j'et could under
stand the reason why, under such
circumstances, their neighbors should
have any; but they have, neverthe
less, and they seem always ready to
lend them.' Well, soon after the sec
ond batch is planted out, a long and
severe drouth usually ensues, causing
the tender leaves to wither and Tade.
The drouth is generally succeeded by
a deluge of rain, which washes the
plants up by thei. roots and carries
themaway-into the rivers to be seen
no more. Laughter. Should there
be any tobacco still remaining, a pe
culiar worm or grub suddenly appears
on the scene and attacks it. This
grub eventually develops into a fly,
and the fly, in its new shape, makes
a still further onsaught renewed
laughter; but after all these risks
our unfortunate tobacco plant is not
out of danger; there stills remains
the inevitable frost, that sad enemy
to all vegetable substance. After ail
this, as a kind of climax, comes the
grand conflagration In the burning of
the barn I laughter!. Of course, by
this time, we have resigned ourselves
to the temptation of short supply and
famine prices; but, bless you, quite
unnecessarily. The import season
arrives in due time, and tobacco is
landed in about the usual quantities.
The reports that have reached us may
have been perfectly true in them
selves, but spread over the vast acre
age of America, reports of floods,
frost, or whatnot, are of little practi
cal moment when we come to aver
age results hear, hear. I have said
tobacco comes over in its usual ci'uan
tity, but I would like to make a re
mark or two respecting quality. The
great bulk of the American planters
are, 1 know, very honorable, high
minded men, and we purchase many
marks In the full faith that we shall
get hogsheads honorably packed.
There are some shippers, however,
who pack falsely, concealing all man
uer of short, dirty tobacco in places
where it will not be discovered when
sampling. But the attention of the
trade has been drawn to this; and
the officers of the bonded . warehouse
are much more vigilant, and further
more, the prices realized for such
falsely packed hogsheads is generally
the value of the worst portion of the
hogshead not of the best; so that
the practice will no doubt soon be
discontinued. Hear, hear. I only
mention this as a little incidental
circumstance. On the whole, we
have much causa to be satisfied with
our friend, the American plauter, and
1 have much pleasure in ; proposing
his health. Loud and continued ap
plause. The toast was received with

that if he destroyed it was not be

cause he wished to build a nobler ed

Ayer's Cathartic Pills,
For the relief
and cure of all
the stomach. Iiv.
er, and bowels.
Tbey are a mild
aperient, and an
tive. Keing pure
ly vegetable, they
contain ao mer-
ciny or mineral
serious sickness and suffering is prevented by
tneir timely use; and every lainuy snould
hare them on hand for tlieir protection and
relief, when required. Long experience has
I . roved them to be the ralest, surest, a id
e-t of all the Pills with which the market
abounds. By their occasional use, the blood
is miriiied, the cnmnmu" -pelieti,
iinsmit'tians removed, and the whole
machinery of hie restored to its healthy activ
ity. Internal organs which heroine clogged
and sluggish are cleansed by Aiirr' fill,
and stimulated into action. Tims incipient
disease is changed rnto health, the value of
which change, when reckoned on the vast
multitudes who enjoy it, can hardlv be com
puted. Their sugar-coating makes tliern
pleasant to tnke, and preserves their virtues
unimpaired for any length of time, so that
they are ever fresh, and perfectly reliable.
Although searching, they are mild, and oper
ate without disturbance to the constitution r
diet or occupation.
Full directions are given on the wrapper to
each box.hotvtonseliicm as a Family l'nysic,
and for the following complaints, which these
Jfitla rapidly cure :
For lysiepaits or Indigestion. Hat
leasaeiM, JLHnjrnor, and Mahm t A im

stimulate "the stomach, and restore its healthy
tone ami action.
For .Liver Complaint and its varions
symptoms, IllHoua It endue b, nick
llradarhe, Jaasilite or t.rrra Mirk
aea, Mil ion Cnllc and Illliana V
Trn, they should be judiciously taken for
each case, to correct the diseased action, or
remove the obstructions which cause it.
For Irynenfery or Iiarrbaa, hut one
mild dose is generally required.
For It heanjatisni, Unwt, ravel,
Palpitation mt th Heart, Iaa ia
the able. Hack, and Lola, they should
be continuously taken, as required, to change
Uie diseased action of the prutem. With such
change those complaints dfsapiiear.
For Drapay and Drapalcal HweIN
lags, they should he taken in large and fre
quent doses to produce tbe effect of drastia
For Aappresslaa, a large dose should be
taken, as it produces the desired effect by
Asa INswr Pitt, take one or two Fills to
promote digestion, and relieve the stomacn.
An occasional dose stimnlates the stomach
nd bowel, restores the appetite, and invigor
ates the system. Hence it is often advanta
geous where no serious derangement exists.
One who feels tolerably well, often finds tlist
a dose of these Pill makes him feel decid
edly better, from their cleansing and reno
vating esoct on we aigesuve apparatus.
