The Monthly Report of the IV parment of Agriculture for the months of May and June,lß76, give* the following figures as the average of monthly wages of farm hand* in the several States and Territories re spectively: South Carolina, $12.84 ; North Carolina, $13.46; Alabama, $13.60; Georgia, $14.4*); Virginia, $14.84; Tennessee, $15.20; Florida, $15.50; Mississippi, $26.40; Ken tury, $18.12 ; Louisiana, $18.40 ; Missouri, sll»..'JO ; Texas, $19.50. Under $25: Maryland, $20.02; Dela- waw, $20.33; Arkansas, $20.50; West Virginia, $20.75; New Mexico, #22.75; Kansas, $23.2<>; Nebraska, 924; Ohio, $24.05; Indiana, 124.35; lowa, $24.35. Under 30: Illinois, $25.2<>; Maine, $25.40; Wisconsin, 525.50; Pennsylvania, $25.89; Min nesota, s2f>.l <>, New Y«>rk, $28.22; Michigan, $28.22; Connecticut, $28.- 25; New Hampshire, $28.57; Ver mont, $29.67. Under $35: Rhode Island, S3O; New Jersey, $30.71; Massachusetts, $33.50; I>akota, $32.- 50. $35 and over: Washington, $35; Utah, $35.50; Oregon, $38.25; Cali fornia, $41.50; Colorado, $38.50 ; Montana, $45; Wyoming, $47.50. It will 1M« observed that the rate of wages in Washington Territory, aa given, is nearly three times as great as in the Carolinas, Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia, and consid erably greater than in any other,with the exception of California, Oregon and four of the Territories. These statistics, however, wore compiled from data taken some Tears ago, since which time, the rate of farm wages lias fallen somewhat in California and esj>ee»ally in the oast em and northern States. At the Name time, it has remained essential ly unchanged for this Territory. The lesson in these figures is, that even aside from all considerations of climate, free farms and diversified openings n|H>n industry, which tell so jower fully to immigrants in favor of our country, - the working man can do infinitely better with his labor alone in this Territory than in the great majority of the |»olitical sub divisions of the Union. In all the cases cited, it is under- stood that the items of board is in cluded, but in the matter of all the other necessaries of life, the cost is not greatly less in the older States than hen*. There, a man may slave all the best part of his life without lading able to accumulate savings enough j to buy a small farm of his own. Here, with t>erseveranee and ecouo my, by a carefully huskuulrv of his earnings, he may in a short time ac quire a comfortable home and easy j independence. If these facts wen* clearly realized by this valuable class in the Eastern States, we should at once have a vast inundation of im migration settliug over our vast but fertile acres, "like a grand maj estic sea."
