It. is free from impurities, and when used with sonabie care burns eutinly to asnes, widen are of • He deepest red of any Coal t nown An equal quantity ignited will yield at least one third more heal dim any other coal. It is more quickly ignited than any other anthracite (thus sav ing expeuse in kindlings); while after ignition, with a proper reduction ot orait it will outlast all other coal, and remain longer <>n fire. A much l< ssquantity of this coal can be kindled and will retail its fire, tliau can be possibly used ol white ash, this tact will result in large savings in spring and fall, and at such times as require only a moder ite degree oi heat.

I. live ■' • Union Republican County Committee. Portland, July I4th, 18D8. Balter, Cheese. Cows, Ogdesikarg Bail road, Ar. It is well known to the public, and the con sumers have a realizing sense of the fact that butter bears a much higher price, even in lo calities where the most is made, than it did several years ago. We do not intend to dis cuss the question, whether it bears too high a price compared with the cost of producing over former times, nor whether there is a less proportional production, causing a scarcity. It is true that the rapid increase of cheese factories may somewhat reduce the quantity of butter. These factories greatly lighten the burden of the housewife and dairy woman and have tended largely to the increase of cheese making. The stopping the free ad mission from Canada has also tended ta in crease the price. But a greater cause than all these may be found in the extravaganco and prodigality of the people who have been induced by the redundancy of our currency to indulge more freely in the consumption of articles of luxury as well as of necessity. Some light is thrown upon this subject by the census report for 1800. In 1850 the num ber of milch cows was 6,385,094, the amount of cheese made 105,535,893 pounds; butter 313,345,306 pounds, averaging about 50 pounds per cow. In 1860 the number of cows increased to 8,581,735, the cheese made decreased to 103.535,927 pounds, ; nd the butter increased to 459,681,392 pounds, aver aging 3 or 4 pounds more per cow. The probability is, there has not been quite so large an increase of cows and butter as there has been in past decades. But one thing is quite certain, iartners will continue to receive a good price for best butter tor years to come, lliere is not much danger of overstocking the market with first rate table butter. Ev ery cow’s milk does not make good butter; every pasture does not furnish the right kind of gras:: and we are sorry to say, every da> rywoman does not know bow to make A No. 1 butter even it the cows and pasture are all that is desirable. There are many drawbacks and always will be; consequently the first quality of butter will never exceed the de mand for it. Vermont butter has always bad a good name, but we have seen and eat en some made in tnat State which was not very good. Poor butter is made there as well as in other States. There is some butter made in Maine quite as good as that made among the Green Mountains. There are many localities in our State where the pas tures are excellent and as good butter can be made as in any other part of the world. We have all heard of the 3t. Albans butter market in Vermont. And much excellent butter is brought to that market. When the Ogdensburg Railroad through the Notch shall hav“ been finished, we expect to see tons of butter come directly to our market from Vermont. The editor ot the New England Homestead, a new agricultural pa per published at Springfield, has recently vis ited St. Albans, and gives his readers some statistics about butter. He says the sales of a single day otten amount to $20,000 or $30, 000, and for a year on both butter and cheese not less than a million and a half of dollars. For seventeen years since the railroad was was opened through to Boston, there has been shipped from St. Albans to Boston 38, 941,123 pounds of butter and 18,435,949 pounds ol cheese. Reckoning these products at 30 cents tor butter and 12 cents lor cheese, we have the large amount in round numbers of fourteen million of dollars. And nearly all this is the product of Franklin county alone, although before the reciprocity treaty was abrogated in 1865, some of it came trotn the border towns in Canada. Now let ns see how many towns Frank lin county coutains aud glance at its geo graphical position. This county contains ouly fifteen towns, bounded on the north by Canada, and on the west by lake Champlain. The Missisquoi river, taking its rise in Can ada runs through it westerly and falls into Champlain lake. This valley contains much tertile laud and the farmers improve it to the best advantage. The Ogdensburg railroad will opm an avenue to this valley as well as to the Lamoiie region, and other places of importance on the route, and Port land would immediately feel the salutary effects. A new impulse would be given to I trade, and such an impulse as some of our citizens have not yet dreamed of in their philosophy. In this county and also in some others ia Vermont the dairies vary in number of cows from twenty to one hnudred, and we knew one farmer who kept 150 cows. As yet ev erything has been done in private dairies, although a tew cheese factories have been started. The marketing is mostly done on Tuesday oi each week in the forenoon. We have been there on market days when St. Albans presented a very aclivc life, the far mers’ teams crowding some ol the streets the purchasers thronging the sidewalks who are mostly commission men residing m the country; but the telegraph keeps them in constant communication with the houses in Boston. They receive a uniform commission of one cent per pound from the Boston deal' ers for all that is purchased. We hope the day is not tar distant when our merchants will hold a similar communi cation with their commission men, stationed at St. Albans and at other localities for the purchase, not only of butter and cheese, but also for other products of the farm. We will hazard a repetition of what we have said be fore—a successful merchant of Danville, in Vermont, told us that in times past he has sent, in a single year, through the Notch to Portland one hundred borseteams loaded with pork and other farm products, which brought back salt, molasses, fish and other goods. And if such things were done in the green tree how much greater things will be done in the dry when railroad communica tion is opened? _ Aoricola. Kecrnl PabllcuiMa. Burns’s Poetical Works. Complete. With a life of the author by James Currie, M. D. New York. D. Appleton & Co. Price fifty cents. These publishers seem determined that tha public shall not be forced to subsist upon trash, and tollowiug their cheap editions of Dickens and Scott, they now give us the popular edi tion of the standard poets, at the low price of titty cents per volume. They see no reason why Burns, and Dante and Chaucer should be monopolised by a few literary aristocrats, and hence, bring the Iruit of genius within the means of all, hoping to displace literature of the lighter class. We welcome to our table all cheap editions of standard authors, believing them to be a step towards the popularisation of art and literature.
