LETTER OF PKOF. P. B. WILSON, LATE ASSISTANT OF BARON J. VON. LIEBIG.
CHEMICAL LABORATORY OF PROF. P. B. WILSON, No. 3D Second Street.
Baltimore, December 1st, 1873.
M (.t, N. M. Tasxor, Piesidert Guanahani Guano Company, Petersburg, Va.:
Dear Sir : I have drawn samples of the Guano, as it has arrived in cargo lots, and hnd
exceedingly uniform in the amount of Phosphoric Acid it contains, namely, from 15 to j
19 per cen'
This is combined with Lime, and
! v i.'r.iits It contains potential ammonia
value equal to from 2 to 3 per cent, of ammonia, with the alkalies Potash and Soda, and
YPi'ip.bie proportions of Sulphate of Lime. The whole forming a very desireable combina
for all crops, and when applied to land, the crop receiving proper tillage, must in my
.pinion, give as good results as any guano offered to the fanner.
Iii;g of animal origin, the organtic matter has undergone partial decomposition, and it
i.f cessarily contains a valuable amount of Humus, which makes its fertilizing power much
greater than fertilizers which are compounded largely of Peruvian Guano, which, beyond
i.s ammonia and small phosphatic value, has little or no power in absorbing from the at
l.e' e and retaining in the soil the movable elements absorbed by moisture and brought
-,n ny the rains, as the guano yoa are now placing npon the market. All of the
ivmponenis of this Guano are very soluble in the soil, and possess such- physical proper
ties as to render it at all times and under all circumstances as immediately available plant
Tne late samples you sent me for analysis, from the deposit which you inform me you
iii'cnd to ship from, show a decrease in the phosphatic value, butfja large increase in its ni
tr.u?n compounds. I think, however, from previous observations of cargoes, that you mar
:eao! ably expect, that cargoes taken fro'.n where these sample were drawn, will materi

Maj. N. M. Tannfr, Petersburg, a.,
L)n.p. Sir: In compliance with your request, I have analyzed sample of " Guanahani
Guano," and have made additional examination of an average sample from a lot of 300
t .-.ns the result of which, I beg to embrace in the following. The Quano is a brownish
p.i-.vder, with lumps of combinations of lime with Carbonic Phosphoric and Nitric acids.
It contains a considerable quantity of water (about 20 per cent), and when dried is a paler
bi-.j'.vn powder. Toe Guano is evidently of animal origin, and the minute bones, which
wpre discovered in the same, indicate that it is the result, of the decay of bats, mice, &c.

A STILL DAY IN AUTUMN.
BY S. H. WHITM4X.
" I love to wander through the woodlands
In the soft light of an autumnal day,
When Summer gathers up her robes of glory,
And like a dream of beauty glides away.
How through each hived familiar path she
Serenely smilina through the golden mist.
Tinting the wild grape with her dewy fingers,
Till the cool emerald turns to amethyst.
Kindling the faint stars of the hazel, shining
To liaht the ;looni of Autumn's moulder
With hoary pUmes the clematis entwining,
Where o'er the rocks her withered garland
Warm lights are on the sleepy uplands wan
ing. Beneath soft clouds along the horizon
Till the slant sunbeams ibiough their fringes
Bathe all the h i! in melancholy gold.
The moist wiiuls breathe of c.isped
the damp hollows of the woodland
Mingling the freshness of autumnal showers
With spicv airs from eedarn alleys blown.
Beside the brook and on the umbered mead
ow, Where yellow fern-tufts Heck the faded
With folded lids beneath their palmy shadow
The gentian r.ods in dewy slumbers bound.
Upon those soft fnned lids the bee sits
Like a fond lover loth to say farewell,
Or with shi.t wings through r.ilken folds in
truding. Creeps near her heart his drowsy tale to
The little birds npon the hillside lonely
Flit noiselessly from spray to spray,
Silent as a sweet wandering thought that
Shows its bright win
is r.nd softly glides
The scentless dowers in the warm sunlight
Forget to breathe their fullness ot delight,
And through the tranci I woods soft airs are
Still as the dew fall of the Summer night.
So. my heart a sweet, unwonted feeling,
Stirs like the wind in ocean's hollow
Through all its secret chambers sadly steal-
Yet liiui- no word its mystic charm to

The Boy Organist.
Mozart's first experience of a
large organ was in the monaster of
a little town on the banks of the
Danube. He was then only six
years old, and in company with his
father had left his home in Salz
burg, and started upon a long course
of travel. All day long they had
been sailing down that majestic
river, past crumbling ruins, frown
ing castles, cloisters hidden away
among the crags, towering cliffs,
quiet villages nestled in sunny
valleys, and here and there a deep
gorge that opened back from the
gliding river, its hollow distance
blue with fathomless shadow, and
its loneliness and stillness stirring
the boy's heart like some dim and
The company of monks with
whom they had been traveling that
day were at supper in the refectory
of the cloister, when father Mozart
took Wolfgang into the chapel to
see the organ.
And now as the boy gazed with
something of awe upon the great
instrument looming up in the shad
ows of the great empty church, hia
face lit up with serene satisfaction,
and every motion and attitude of
the little figure expressed a wonder
ing reverence. What tones must
even now be slumbering in those
mighty pipes ? Tones which, if
once awakened, could give utter
ance to all that voiceless beauty
which the day's scenes had showed
him life and death, present and
past ; the peaceful river and the
deserted ruin : the sunshine unfail

pedals, and trod them as though he
had never needed to have their

in the world. It is a vast hollow
sphere of iron, weighing 8,000,0oQ
pounds. How much is that? A

about 70,000 full grown persons, or
about equal to a thousand loaded

nearly 20,000 pounds more to the
square foot, and St. Genevieve, at
Paris, 66,000 pounds more. It
would require, to crush the suppor

cost was about $1,000,000. The

Greeley said : " I estimate the value
of salt at 25 cents per hushel on my
place, which is some twenty miles
from Long Island Sound, and near
ly twice as far from the broad
ocean. That is to say : I consider
ten bushels of salt per acre, applied
to my fields one half in each cf two
successive years, about the best two
dollars and a half worth of plant
food that money will buy me."

life into all parts of the system,
and building up an Iron Con
stitution. Thousands have been changed
by the use of this remedy, from

tures, to strong, healthy, and
