: Six years since, ia Ohio, there were Terr few agricultural mscUiaw now there , are an immense nnmber. The effect of machines in doinz the work of men it is ' hardly possible to estimate. 1 A mower with two horses, two man : caJ boy, mast accomplish tfy.e work of ? at least twelve men. If so, it mast save the lsbor of five men st least Now, we ' know of one coonty which has three hon- dred aad fifty mowers -and reapers, and i they mast save the labor of about 1600 men ! In the State at large, tWe mast : be about eight thousand of these machines, f thus saving the labor of 40,000 able bodied man. Supposing that they are - employed only two months fa tlia ye.tr, for harvest only, they will save, in money ' paid for labor, about $2,500,000 per an ; .nam. .The interest oa their cost will be about 670,000 only ; so that there will . be aet absolute gain en them of more -then two millions per annum. -If we look to the prairie tatee, the saving will ? be much greater. In the United States ; at large, probably, the labor of 3,000.000 able bodied men is saved during two months in the year. This is eqial in money to 20,000,000 of dollars tr an num. This saving, too, is male in the " last five years. But the saving of raon!y ia by no means the most part of the sav in. Ihe eeonomy of labor i, in our v modern civilization, of the highest Talue, " without reference to the money or the " market value. We have already referred, , onr readers will remember, to the ten dencies of our present civilization towards centralizing in cities and towns. , This is really, and without theory. - 'drawing large portions of onr rural or . ountry population to the towns. The ' consequence is, that both in America and Europe the relative proportion of eulti . rators is continually "diminished. If we appose this process to go on like a matb-'-etn at ical series, without arrest, the coo.se ' qnence would be ultimate starvation ; but, of course, the preliminary symptoms of neb a calamity would be sufficient to -drive many from the cities to the country, and tuns ensnare toe current. - Mill, we 1 must regard the invention and success of tins agricultural machinery as a providen tial interference to avert for a time th alternative of starving in cities or return ing to the country. Railroad Record. Fattcsish TuasiTe. The alimentary properties of charcoal are very great ; in ;ded, it has been asserted that domestic . fowls may be fattened on it without any other food, and that, tee, in a shorter time than on the nutritious grains. In an ex periment made to test the value of the article, four turkeys were taken and con fined ia a pen, and fed on meal, boiled potatoes and oats. - Four others of the ares brood wore confined at the same ''time, ia another pen, and fed daily on the same articles, but with one pint of very Jiaely . pulverized charcoal mixed with .their moal and potatoes ; they had also a plentiful supply of broken charcoal in their pen. The eight were killed on the aame day, and. there was a difference of -ne and a half pounds each in favor of the fowls which had been supplied with the charcoal, they being much the fatter, .and the meat greatly superior in point of tenderness and flavor. This would ap pear te establish, beyond a iWU, the benefit of charcoal for fattening purposes. ' Tools nrTmcTR Placis. There are probably very few men, if any, who have .bad the charge of farms, with men and .boys under their direction, who have not frequently experienced vexatious interrup tions in their business for -want of a tool, which, at the moment it was needed, -could Bot be found. It had probably been -need by some one of the family, left where it was used, and forgotten. Those farmers who require their domestics to fde posite the tools which they use in some Reunite place, whenever they have done -with them, and exact invariable attention to this1 rule, may be deemed punctilious -ana rigid, but they often save themselves and others no trifling share of perplexity and loss or time. When you have place for everything, and everything in its place, you know exactly where to lay your .band upon any tool you may want. U ry it. Look to Your Pem Treks! Persons cultivating dwarf pears, or other low trees, shrubbery or evergreens, must have an eye I them and a shovel, too when the great body of snow now lying on the ground, begins to thaw. It will settle about the tender twigs during the day, ahd freeze them at nieht : but the earth tela, warm, and the process of thawiug and settling still going on, will drag down the smaller branches, and break them off where they unite .with the main stem., So it will be with raspberry and blackberry vines, and even currant and gooseberry bushes. As soon; therefore. m. thaw 'Commences, the snow should be carefully shovelled away from the plant.-, so as to relieve their branches In neglect of this, we have known some! or the finest young fruit tress and shrubs Of our gardens utterly ruined.

It contain Jefferson's heretofore unpublished fim iir eorrcspon Jence ; selections from his finest poluhed letters, State papers, etc., etc. . OPIXION3 OF THE PRESS. No other Life of Jefferson ever published probably none that ever will be published can bear any comparison to this in thoroughness, fullness of incident, and conscientious fidelity. This biography has evi dently been a labor of love, and the years of pa tient, assiduous toil it has cost, have been given with ungrudging, untiring enthusiasm. .V. 1. Tribune. At length the public hare a Life of Thomas i Jefferson, that is not only fascinating, and thero Ut.rs aura to be popular, but one that will stand tae essential historic test that of accuracy and truthfulness. It is seen that the ground-work of the whole ia authentic cotcmporary mate rial, and that of the highest order. To gather it has been the work of years. We would not compare this volume with that inimitable aud incomparable biography of Boswell, and yet so faithful is the portraiture that Jefferson is made ti draw of himself, that his nature, his very oonl, is delineated with a distinctness not unlike that in which Johnson stands out in the pages of Boswell.

No one who runs his eye, however casuallr. over this work, will fail to be satisfied that Mr. Randall baa added very largely to the stock of the world's information about Jefferson, that he has had access to sources hitherto unexplored, and that he has done more than was ever done by any one before him to illustrate the personal ity of that great statesman. .V. V. Ene. Pott. We have read with delight Mr. Randall's eaptivating details of Mr. Jefforsou's personal history, which he has sedulously gathered, and admirably grouped together, from agrcatvariety of authentic sources hitherto unexplored. Out of the tempting richness of his materials, the able and clear sighted author has constructed a book at once most entertaining and instructive one that should be studied by every patriot of the land Richmond Enq. There can be only one opinion as to the abil ity, general impartiality and industry which Mr. Randall has brought into combination in the composition of this biography. He has worthily executed a much wanted book. Phil adelphia Prett. It will take a placo among the choicest class ics of American literature, and be consulted by evary future historian of this country.

Tobacco affects also the entire nervous sys tem, manifesting itself as all who have ever nsed the noxious weed will bear testimony in Lassitude, Nervous Irritability, Water Brash, Dyspepsia, and many disorders of a similar character.

WHITE CL0UD1 J f ,, rlw im innlj WHITE CLOUD is situated on above St. Louis, and two miles below tte JNebraska line, lae landing, a mile in extent, ot oeautitui mxm root, is equaueu by but one from St, Louis to Sioux City, I distance of one thousand miles, and being the natural business point for a large extent of rich and beautiful country, will, of itself, in a few years, build up"a flourishing city. Upon the town site, and all through the adjacent country, there is an abundance of timber of every kind needed for family and buildinz purposes. Iron ore ia found on the town site, also stone of a superior quality, for building purposes. Bituminous coal of an excellent quality is found in large quantities near the town. As a point for Manufacturing,White Cloud has no superior on the Missouri River. No portion of tho West has a finer climate, better soil, more beautiful scenery or is better watered than the country for 150 miles back of White Cloud. Of the central position of White Cloud nothing need be said. An accurate map of the Country is the best comment. It is immediately on the air line from the great State of Iowa, and Northern Missouri, to Western and Northwestern Kansas, as well as Southern Nebraska. The roads di verging from here are good at all seasons. A State road is now opening, and will soon be completed from the opposite side of the Missouri River to Des Moines, in Iowa, and as there is a new steam ferry recently established, this will be the most direct and convenient route for the emigration to Northern and Western Kansas. A Railroad has already been chartered to Fort Riley, in the interior of the Territory, and will be built at no distant day. The healthfulness of the climate, and fertility of the soil are proverbial, and are surpassed only by the beauty of the gently undulating prairie. This portion of the public domain is rapidly filling up, but still most valuable lands can be obtained within a very reasonable distance at the government price. White Cloud, though scarcely a year old, contains one of the best hotels in Kansas ; five stores all doing a good business, and a class of buildings superior to most new towns, and has a populatian of five hundred, and is rapidly improving in every respect. Already there are flourishing schools in operation in the place, and whithin eight miles, in the growing town of Highland, there has been established a Uni versity under the management of the Presbyterian denomination, which is now under the process of erection, the cost of wich, will be more than twenty-five thousand dollars. Thus the morals and intellect of the people will keep pace with the improvements of the country, and render White Cloud, as a commercial mart, aud the adjacent country as an agricultural district, the most desirable and attractive portion of the mighty West.
