8«w- -Vor-K. O. Bryn, the law
yer who carried on the procreation on
the part of the State ageinct Judge
Hubbel, in Wirconiin, in the impeach
sent case, has obtained a verdict of
93000 for his services. Mr. Bryan mod
estly claimed but $2003. The House
cut down his bill to $1000, aud the Ju
ry in the Supreme Court, prompted by
three lawyer witnesses, compromised the
matter by putting the two estimates to
gether. Mr. Bryan gets the $2000 that he
claimed, and the f1000 they offered him.
This is about $100 per day. Con
gress men get $8 per day; the Presi
dent gets along with $60 per day ; Mr.
Byan has found the richest placer yet.—
We may expect that the Impeachment
vein will now be industriously worked.
Xiitchfleld Cm. Agricultural Society.
The annual Exhibition of our Agricul
tural Society takes place on the 28 th
inst., and the plowing match and awaid
ing of premiums on the following day.
The managers are doing everything in
their power to facilitate and increase the
interest of the proceedings, and there is
no doubt the farmers and mechanics will
sustain their part.
Uouhtt Agricultural Societies.—To
develop the spirit of improvement in any
business, the spirit of competition must be
rouaed. The matter must be talked of,ag
itated and a spirit of generous rivalry ex
cited. Nor is farming an exception fo this
general rule. If the farmer in his quiet
*• unconsciousness” is not aware that an
other man having equal or perhaps less
natural advantogeu, by a judicious system
of management, produces better crops,
grows better stoi-k,and consequently makes
more money than lie does, lie remains quiet
and satisfied perfectly content to plod on in
the very footsteps of his father. In fact,
in many.instances there is a strong affec
tion for the “ good old way,” aa the habits
of the grand fathers are termed, and what
is still worse a strong prejudice against any
thing new—a disposition to condemn it as
such, without a heating. An instance to
the point now occurs to us. Many years
ago wlien cast iron plow shares and moul
boards were uot generally introduced
among farmers, a quiet neighborhood in
the Mohawk valley was thrown into a high
excitement by the arrival of a cast iron
plow. A rather intelligent farmer being in
town, had been persuaded to bring one
home with him, partly by his own convic
tion, but more by the recommendation of
the vender, who repeatedly stipulated that
he should return the instrument if it did
not “stand trial.” He met with but one
opinion among his neighbors, viz., that it
wist “Yankee humbug,” and that the
first contact w ith a stone would be sufficient
to demolish it. All were on the ground the
next day to witness as they confidentially
supposed, our “ innovators” discomfiture—
but after following the “ humbug,” which
did its work well, until weary, and the
prospect of a “ smash”growing beautifully
less, the spectators left the field, their faith
in the infilibilny of their judgment some
what on the decline.
But to return. The best, the most ef
fectual method of getting up an interest
among fartners, is by firming Agricultural
Societies and holding County and Town
Fairs, and Cattle Shows. And now one
word about what these ought to be. Not
merely to award premiums; but those who
exhibit and especially those to whom the
prizes are awarded should be required to
give the full particulars of the means used
to produce such superiority. This should
lie done in particular detail. The Society
will be incomparably more benefitted, by
knowing how the premium cheese or but
ter is made, than by learning who made it.
The same of grain, cattle and all else, «ex
hibited, and in publishing the list of premi
ums awarded we would suggest that it
shall include a detailed account of the
manner by which prize articles are pro
duced.—Prairie Farmer.
