The following sensible resolution,

"That the motives and general

June 13.A Gal
veston special from San Antome
says the following will appear the
morning Herald, and is authentic
from a gentleman just returned from
Clark: Friday last Gen. Muncia,
commanding the Mexican govern
ment troops, was killed by Escobe
dia's soldiers, near that place. Sat
urday, Gen. McKenzie and Col.
Shalter, with a strong force, crossed
into Mexico in pursuit of the raid
ers, about forty miles north of Eagle
Pass. That night they were obliged
to return to Texas and immediately
telegraphed for reinforcements. 20
companies of cavalry have been sent
to their assistance with a section ot
artillery consisting of two Gatling
guns and two rilled cannon. It is
believed at Fort Clark that this ag
gregated force has re-entered Mexico.
The troops have fifteen days rations
and a heavy train, with two experi

THE GRASSHOPPER REPORT.
The movements ofthe festive grasshopper, and
the results of the steps taken to ascertain the facts
regard to his carreer and the best means of anni
hilating him, are not subjects of such intense inter
eat to the people of Minnesota as they were one
yar ago Nevertheless, as a matter of general in
formation, and as a guard against possible future
contingencies, any reliable facts concerning this
ate dreaded pest will be welcomed by ourthought
ful readers. To such we commend the following
statements gleaned from the forthcoming report of
theU 8 Entomological Commission, created by
The Commission consisted ofProfessor Charles V.
Riley, of St Louis, chief Cyrus Thomas, Carbon
dale, 111., and A. S Packard, of Salem, Mass. These
gentlemen have carefully studied the subject of the
devasting locust plague, in all its aspects, andtheir
report, which is not vet issued, will be an exhaust
ive digest of the results oftheir searching investi.
The report devotes a chapter to the permanent
breeding grounds of the locust. The area ia which
the locust breedseach year, in greater or leas num
bers, the commission says, is approximately300,000
square miles in extent. It liesmainly between longi
tude 108o, and 114 west of Greenwitch, and lati
tude 53o and 40 north. From this ground tbe in
sect migrates in all directions. Tbe eastern limit
of its range is marked by the commission by the
following line: "From the southern end of Lake
Winnipeg, by way of Lake of the Woods to Pierce
county, Wisconsin thenee directly soath to Powe
shiek county, Iowa thence southwest to Worth
county, Missouri, thence south through Moatgom.
ery county, Arkansas to Housten, Texas, curving
westward from this point toLiveOak county, Tex-
as," In Manitoba the eastern and also the north
ern limit corresponds very close'? with the Umber

As to tbe Southern limit, the commission lacked
data for determining this line satisfactorily. All
that its members are able to say in reference to it
is that the locusts have been known tottlio Granda
at Eagle Pass, and to penetrate a mile and a half in.
to Mexico that they havebeen observed in Western
Texas as far as the settlements have extended that
they have penetrated New Mexico onthe northeast
as far as LasVegas and Fort Union, andhave passed
down in the mountainregionfrom ColoradotoTaos,
and possibly further south
Probably tbe most important chapter in the book
is that on "remedies and devices for distraction
The means to be employed for the destruction of lo
custs, the commission says, very naturally fall in
to the five divisions' First, encouragement of natur
al agencies secondly, destruction of eggs, thirdly,
destruction of the young and unfledged insects
fourthly, destruction of the mature or winged in
sect, fifthly, preventative measures The means
suggested for tbe destruction of the eggs are, firet.
harrowing in autumn This during dry, mild
weather has been found to be one of the most effec
tive modes of destroying the eggs and preventing
further injuries The commission suggests that it
be enforced by law A revolving harrow, or culti
vator is reccomended for this work. The second
method is by plowing, thus hurrying the eggs so
far below the surface as to prevent their hatching.
The third is irrigation Where this is practised and
the ground is light and pourous, prolonged and
excessive moisture will cause most of the eggs to
perish, and irrigation in the autumn has been found
very beneficial The fourth plan is tramping Many
of theeggs may be destroyed in pastures or fields
where hogs, cattle or horses can be confined, when
the ground is not frozen The fifth is collecting
In cases where neither of the means already sug
gested are available the commission recommends
the collection and destruction of theeggs, and sug
gests that the State authoritiesshould oner some in
ducement for this work Every bushel of eggs de
stroyed is equivalent to a hundred acres of corn
The methods suggested for the destruction ofthe
young or unfleged locusts are, first, by burning,
which may be done by scattering over or around
the fields old straw or hay, in heaps or windrows,
into which the locusts, sometime after they hatch,
may be driven and burned Crushing can be done
by means of various methods, but can only be ad
vantageously accomplished where the ground is
smooth and hard The commission describes a
great number of crushing machines, and illustrates
tne subject by numerous engravings Trapping
can be done by the use of nets or seines of long
strips of muslin, calico or similar materials, made
aftei the mannerofquail nets It is also accomplished
by digging pits and hole and by the use of coal tai
or coal oil in pans These pans are pnshed over
the fields, and asthev disturb the locursts they
jump into the tai or oil and are thus destroyed
For catching or bagging there are innumerable
mechanical contrivances, several of which are de
scribed and illustrated by the commission The
commission has little faith in the application to the
plant or insect of any chemical mixture, fluid or
powder, as a means of destroying the insect, first,
because nothing will more quickly and thoroughly
kill them than coal oil, secondly, because of the
impracticability of lining any such application on
the extensive scale that would be necessary The
commission also suggests the protection of fruit
trees by whitewashing their trunks or by surround,
ing them with narrow strips of batting The de
struction of winged insects, the commission says*
is impossible, but several means of disturbing them
and driving them away are suggested As a means
of protection against the ravages of the locusts, the
commission recomends deversified agiiculture,
legislation, the protection and encouragement of
increase of increase of native locust feeding birds,
the introduction of foreign locust feeding birds, in
ducements offered to the Indians to collect and de
stroy theeggs and young the destroying ofthe eggs
or young by making the greatest possible use by
artificial means of the natural water supply burn
ing the young in spring time aud diverting the
winged swarms by smoke
The commission says that nothing is to be feared
from theseinsects after the illst yearin the tempo
rary region. The insects which are hatched in this
region cause great destruction before they take
wing, but after that they invariably take their flight
toward their original home inthe permanent breed
ing grounds. They however do not usually reach
the end of theirjoui ney They become infected with
parasites and diseased during their stay in the tern,
porary region, and perish on their way DISPATCH
LINDEN, JUNE 17,1878.
Since my last communication to you

a loss to know whether it was received
or not, and wishing to let your readers
know that there is such a town in

I noticed in your last issue the call
for a Republican county convention to
choose.delegates to the RepublicanCon
gressional, State and 37th District Re

the town is almost unanimously Re
publican the call naturally offers a
theme for political discussions. The
people in this vicinity area unit in
the opinion that Major Strait, our pres
ent efficient member of Congress,
should be returned again, and we hope
that our county convention will send a
delegation to Shakopee that will be in
favor of his renomination.
