NUMBEE 26. "VOLUME 15. Religious Department, He. Wm. A. KOBIJfSON, Editor. " eentiaU until, in non-eentiah liberty, in all tkimj charity." "According to Your Faith." There wore seven of them active, dar ing, handsome fellows fearing nothing, reverencing few things, and effervescing with fun at all times and places. Their eager minds were keen to detect inconsis tencies, or to revolt at sham professions. They discussed with equal zeal the exact appearance and locomotive power of Eli jah's chariot of fire, or the intricate doc trine of election. What should 1 do with them, as .Sunday after Sunday I came before them, and they called me teacher? t I axked the question of myself and of the superintendent. The first gave no reply. The latter, with his usual blandness of tone, said, " Ah, yes ! difficult claws very. Fine boys, though ; yes ! ah ! um ! to be sure. Win their hearts, Miss Ci ; win their hearts. All tho rest will follow." This was not enlightenment nor any com fort. It was not ditticult to follow the superin tendent's advice, however. Any earnest woman could not fail to win the regard of those chivalrie boyish natures. So, before long, my boys and I were warm friends, and our Sunday meeting the pleasantest hour of all the happy week to me. Kometimes, when the eager eyes and flushed cheekshowed thutsome heart chord was touched, I wondered a little sadly that its vibration was not more lasting. I could not but know that the plea which wrought effect upon their words and acts was not for "Christ's sake," but for "teach er." They were won, but by human love, not Jesus' power. I pleaded God's prom ise, and rested upon iU distant fulfilment. And thus the months passed into the rec ord of a whole year. One day, in our teachers' meeting a Granger rose to address us. " Friends," said he, "you have been talking of sowing the seed now, and being content to wait (rod's time for the harvest. Very good. Iiut some of you lament that the harvest is so far off, and wonder why it is. It is because you don't expect it now. Look at your classes. How many pupils have been converted this year? None? Why not? Because you don't expect Clod to hear your prayer now. They are laid up to be heard by-and-by. It's only with you according to your faith. You are satisfied to gain the personal love and Sabbath interest of your pupils for the present, and wait for luture fruit from the seed sown. Well, if you work, and trust for the years to come only, surely you need feel no sadness. Look on to the years, that, after all, may never come in this world to you or your children. Friends, (rod's time, as given in his own Word, is nmr. Why not plead hi own Word to him? " Why should not your pupils be con verted .' As of old Christ asked the blind, to-day he asks you teachers, ' Believe ye that I am able to do this?' Your an swer is found in the present trust and work and, whatever that answer is, the response comes unchanged -' Arcordin;; to your faith lie i unto Ion. ( nir teachers' meeting has never again heard that rough but loving speaker. Yet I know that many hearts thanked him for the faithful rebuke, and more than one head was bowed sorrowfully in prayer for present faith. And when, six months la ter, " my boys" and I were parted, joy (trove with sadness in the hearts of pupils and teacher ; for she knew, that, of the seven sorrowful faces that watched her from the receding deck, three she should surely see in heaven, if never more on earth. They had a hope urc and steadfast, and were her brothers in Christ. To-day she holds a letter, bidding her rejoice, that of that dear class two only now remain uncon verted. Dear friends, might it not be better if we had each less future and more present, faith? Christian Banner. Our Friend at Court. 1 "Our Fellow-sufferer yet retains A fellow-feeling of our pains, And still remembers, in the skies, His tears, His agonies, and cries. With boldness, therefore, at the throne, Let us make all our sorrows known, And ask the aids of heavenly power, To help us in the evil hour." Ciive me a friend so cries the heart uni versally give me a friend who will listen to my wants and sorrows; who will appre ciate my feelings; who will bear with me in my weaknesses, whose arm shall prove strong to raise me from deep waters. Most of all, I want a friend in my relations and affairs on high, an experienced, watchful friend, one who has influence as well as sympathy. So oppressive are my guilt and timidity that no common advocate, and no common kindness will suffice. The assur ance that there is such an One at the Court above, and that my case is in His hands, brings joy unspeakable. " For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." The Rev. Thomas Charles of Bala, at 17 years of age, went to hear the Welsh min ister, Daniel Rowlands, preach. Those words, Hebrews 4th chapter, 15th and 10th verses, were the text. ' This is a day much to be remembered by me as long as I live. F.yer since that happy day, I have-lived in a new heaven and a new earth. Ihe change which a blind man who receives his sight, experiences, does not exceed the change which at this time I experienced in my mind. It was then I was first convin ced of the sin of unbelief, or of entertain ing narrow, contracted, and hard thoughts of the Almighty. I had such a view of Christ as our High Priest, of His love, com passion, power, and all-sufficiency, as filled my soul with astonishment, with joy un speakable, and full of glory. My mind was overwhelmed and filled with amaze ment. The truths exhibited to my view, appeared lor a time too wonderfully gra cious to be believed. I could not believe r very joy. I had before some ideas of the gospel work floating in my head, but they never powerfully and with divine en ergy penetrated my heart till now." Let us therefore come. This t!nrrj',,,-e bridges over a gulf otherwise impassable, between us in our sinfulness, and the holy throne on high. Here is a celestial logic, binding the invitation that follows to a bioad field of most satisfactory encourage ment. Thus is the wondrous privilege at the close of this chapter, linked to a con text, setting forth the high priesthood of Jesus Christ, our friend at Court, fully able and ready to do for us all that is needful. With daring, yet characteristic perver sion, these words have been so changed in the inscription on a church at Borne, as to read, "Let us come boldly unto the throne of the Virgin Mary that me may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in lime of need." Rome supersedes Christ ; true Protestantism enthrones him. Rome does not scruple at idolatry, and she multiplies mediators; the Holy Ghost teacheth, " There is one God, and one mediator be tween (iod and man, the man Christ Jesus." I Might Have Been. Every person, in looking back upon his course, can trace two lives, the life he has led, and the life he might have led. In proportion as these two coincide, he is hap py in the retrospect. The disparity between the two is the bitterest element in the mis ery of fallen man or fallen angel. The Wave-Ripple Mark. ( n the east coast of Scotland, in Fife shire, on the sea shore between Anstruther and Crail, there is to be seen a " petrified, forest." Part of the trunks of some eleven or twelve trees stand there, hard as the rock beside them, and lashed by the billows of many centuries. Near those trees, which grew, and waved, and flourished years ago, something, at first not so noticeable, attracted our attention. On the surface of some of the slabs of red sand stone we distinctly saw impressions or undulations. The.se were the wave-ripple mark. Some bore, as it were, the trace of a rougher, and others of a gentler wave ; but the ripple marks were very manifest. There lay those large blocks, like the leaves of a book with Uie handwriting of the great Creator imprinted on them ; and at a subsequent period they had been tilted ly the arm of the Almighty. Now, young friends, as we gazed on the imprints made by these ancient waves, and which had remained for centuries, we could not help thinking of another book the Book of God's Remembrance, (iod has a book of remembrance more en during still than those rocks. In this book arc written every thought, word and action of your lives; and these words are more lxsting than those marks on the rocks writ ten by the hand of time. On the shores of time the record of your life is silently but surely being made up, God is writing down in the book of his re membrance the story of your lives. Every idle thought, every idle word, every idle act, is recorded there. Every sin is regis tered in that book. Time w ill not, can not, wear out that re cord. "Your forgetfulncss of your sin won't do this all the influence of your friends won't do this all the power of an angel can't do this. No created being can do this for you. There is only one thing which will ac- complish this, and that is the blood of Je sus Christ. " But now once in the end of the world hath he appeared, to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself." Heb. 9 : '2i'. The bkod of Christ can put away your sin it can cancel it, it can wipe it out, it can cause it to be forgotten lorever. Dear reader, will you pray this prayer in faith '.' O Lamb of God, which takest away the sin of the world, take away my sin! VL-tior. House, Farm and Garden. I. 0. K. COLLINS. Editor. Religion and Science. One of the most short sighted of fashion able opinions in literary circles is that there is a feud between revealed religion and sci ence. The adversaries of the Scriptures try to make the impression that science and learning are altogether against the super natural and miraculous ; and unstable and unlearned men, whose religion will not al low them to read what unbelievers write, or even to examine a book on geology, im agine that real orthodoxy consists in shut ting the eyes against everything which their ignorance and sloth will not permit them to understand, because they have not the tact and energy requisite for investiga tion. Such men ought to go to school, in stead of attempting to teach; for when they begin to speak on such subjects they prove nothing more clearly than that they know nothing about them, and of course they simply confirm the doubts of the skeptic. The error of scientists is not de votion to their favorite studies ; it is haste in forming conclusions which are almost certain to prove untenable with time, pre cisely as the recent case of the submarine formations, brought to light by dredging, when securing a bed for the deep sea cable. o far, all the ascertained facts of science are in lull accord with the Hible. -Men A person who has enjoyed opportunities who have no tn-e for natural science will for intellectual development, looking back may say : The man I might have been, en dowed with fair talents and possessed of ordinary advantages, used all hi:; powers to the utmost, left no opportunity unimpro ved. Each victory gained was but a means of new attainments. His acquisitions gave him access to the society of the learned and refined ; and in turn their example and do well to leave questions which can be de eided only by patient investigation, to tho-c who are prepared to discuss them, lest they darken counsel bv words without knowl edge. ( 'Irrhthnt hitell'menerr. Luther's Preaching. Cursed are all preachers that in the church aim at high and hard things, and A Need of the Soul. Many are the Christians we aro fain to believe, to whom these first few sentences do not apply. Many do live in the light, and why not all ? With the ineffable blessedness of heaven so sure and so near, why do we feel so much the hardships, the troubles, the losses inci dent to earthly life? Soon we shall be in everlasting rest and satisfaction and joy. Tain can sting but a little longer. All tears are to be wiped forever away from our eyes. In God's own glory and bliss are we to dwell and rejoice! Might not such a prospect give us more cheer than we have ? Could not should not a hope so gladsome teach us not to sing so many of our songs on a minorkey ? Is there not in it a balm to heal our severest wounds ? A gloomy countenance.despairing impatienco, sighing over seeming ills, why are they ever seen and experienced among the pil grims to "a better country, even an heav enly?" Ah, the faith that reveals the in visible is not ours as an abiding light, but rather as a flash that now and then cleaves the terrible darkness all round us. Its beaming is as startling as helpful. We walk by it with more of trembling than as surance. So little do we realize the glori fied Christ as our life now and eternally, that He fails to be to us as we need He should, an ever unclouded sun. " Rejoice evermore." Then when I stand at the grave of my precious little boy, (the last thing he played with is lying on the desk before me priceless stick and stringl I must bo able to see him fairer and happier than he was in the form that is moldering to common earth. If you are worn with toil that will last as long as your strength, you need to look forward to a reward better than a livelihood or wealth. When disease is killing us, we want to know that in the end victory will be ours. A dim belief that there remains something which shall more than compensate us for the calamities of the present is not enough. With only that our tear must be bitter, our burdens crushing, our weakness and torture distres sing. We must have our conversation in heaven ; must feel that we are risen with Christ ; whilst till in conflict, must lean ujMjn the throne awaiting us J Oh, for that enlightenment of the eyes of our under standing by which the saints may know what is the hope of God's calling, and what tho riches of the glory of his inheritance in them !

Luther's Table Talk, When you are examining yourself, never call yourself merely " a sinner ;" that is a very cheap abuse, and utterly useless. You may even get to like it, and be proud of it. But call yourself a liar, a coward, a Bluggard, a glutton, or evil-eyed, jealous wretch, if yoa indeed find yourself to be in any wise either of these. Take steady means to check yourself in whatever fault you hare ascertained, and justly accused yourself of; and, as soon as you are in an active way of mending, you will be, no doubt, more inclined to mourn over an un defined corruption. An immense quantity of modern confession of sin, even when honest, is merely sickly egotism, which will rather gloat over its own evil than lose the centralization of its interest in itself. Ruthin.

Vermont Dairymens' Association. Ag. Editor Standard : Permit me to call the attention of your readers to the first volume of the Transactions of this So ciety, which has just been issued by the Socretary in a neat octavo of 113 pages. Its contents are of the most useful char acter, and to every farmer who makes ei ther butter or cheese are worth very much more than the subscription that would en title him to the work and also make him a member of the association. A brief review of the contents will aid in substantiating this estimate in the minds of those who have not seen it, and may do good in stimulating at least the-more en terprising dairymen of the county to aid the important objects of the association by their approval and co-operation. A few pages are occupied with an account of the organization of the society by a meeting of those interested, held at Montpelier Oct. 27, 18(50. Then comes reports of the vari ous addresses and papers offered at the first regular meeting subsequent to the organ ization, held in St. Albans Jan. 19, 20, and 21, 1870. First is a brief opening address by Hon. K. D. Mason of Itichmond, the president of the association, in which the dairymen of the state are reminded of the great progre-ss of their art in other locali ties, and the urgent necessity there is that Vermont farmers should exert themselves to secure and maintain their rightful posi tion as a leading dairy region. Following this is a very interesting and instructive paper by Henry Lane of Corn wall, upon the culture of the sugar beet and its use as food for dairy stock. In this it is apparently demonstrated that the im proved American sugar beet is the best, most profitable, and most cheaply grown of any root crop adapted to the purpose. With good ordinary (not extra) cultivation, crops of this beet are grown in Addison Co. reaching SO tons to the acre at an average cost ol eight cents per bushel. One acre of these beets will feed a herd of 25 cows, one-half bushel each, for eighty days, with paying results. If harvested dry they will keep well in any quantity, stored in a place protected from frost. This paper strike me as especially worth v the attention of all who understand the value of root crop for dairy stock. The next in order is a most valuable address by X. A. Willard of New York, the greatest authority on dai rying in America. In this address the substantial scientific and practical facts upon which the successful manufacture of dairy products i based arc set forth most clearly, in a way calculated to fix them in the minds of all who desire to improve themselves in the art and to raise their productions to the proper level of the time in quality ami quantity. Any attempt at an abstract of this address would be vain, for it is in itself a contradiction, as com pact as can be made, of all the great lead ing facts in connection with the subject, every word having its weight and value. Dr. Goldsmith of Rutland furnished a pithy and pointed paper, devoted to a re sume of the objects and methods of investi gation necessary to the development of the lairy interests of Vermont, and urging up on the association the importance of de voting its time and its funds to exact ex periments for the purpose of settling im portant points in dispute, or doubt, regard ing the value of various methods of feeding and manufacture, breeds of stock, &c. Ex. Lieut. Gov. Aivord of .Syracuse, X. Y., gives some important information in reference to the value of different kinds ol salt for dairy use, and recommends the Onondaga Factory Filled salt as equal to the best for butter and cheese. A useful paper on Grasses, by H. Good man of Lenox, Mass., succeeds, followed bv an abstract of an address bv Prof. 1. ('. Caldwell of Cornell University, treating of Fermentation and Putrefaction in their re lation to the manufacture of cheese. This paper explains the whole subject in an in telligible manner, placing the operative in possession of facts that enable him to pur sue his labors with a full knowledge of the elements that must control, and often, if not understood, injuriously modify their results. An address upon the subject of Ergot in the seed of grain and grasses, and its per nicious effect upon dairy animals, by Prot. Prentiss, also of Cornell University, is next in order. These two addresses, which were delivered before the American Dairymens' Association, show that the faculty of that young but energetic institution are work ing actively in the spirit of its founder, and bid fair to do more to promote the union of science and practice in the art of agriculture than any other in the country. A well-considered Esay on Butter Mak ing, by (). S. Hliiss.Sec'y. of the association, is the last article of these Transactions, and is eminently worthy of being studied, not only for its practical value, but for the warning it contains, and the evidence it adduces to show that the position of Ver mont as a dairy state is in great clanger from thecoiupetition of other regions, more awake than the farmers of Vermont have yet become to the imparlance of co-operative action and the adoption of all the mod ern improvements in manufacture, pack ing, transportation and selling their dairv products. To those who are already aroused to the necessities of the case and the action re quired to maintain our place in the front rank, nothing need be said. To others, not deficient in the requisite sagacity, who from not keeping sufficiently posted, have allowed themselves to fall behind the pro gress of tho time, I would advise that they at once send in their subscriptions of membership in this association, (two dol lars,) receive this Report, study it, and be prepared to co-operate energetically in the work which must be done, and cannot be done without the earnest efforts of the en tire dairying interest of the state. T. II. Hoskixs. Newport, June 30, 1870. r. S. The address of the Secretary of the Vt. Dairymens' Association is O. S. Bliss, Georgia, Vermont. Cutting and Curing Hay. H. L. Reade, of Hearth and Home, gave his ideas on this timely topic as follows : "The natural food of the three principal classes of domesticated animals horses, cattle, and sheep is grass, not hay or grain. When, therefore, civilization removes them from a state of nature, the artificial life to which they are introduced should be as near the natural as possible. Six months in the year our horses, cattle, and sheep (in the country) live on their natur al food. In providing for the other six, we should prepare for them something as nearly like their summer diet as possible. It should not, therefore, be matured stalks dried, but preserved grass. All grasses reach their highest point of excellence, considered as food, when they first come into blossom. The vital elements are then scattered throughout the entire plant, which in no part has suffered the exhaust ion and loss attending the complete or even partial development of the seed. Grass, then, should be cut when the blossoms first open. Practically, if the grass on any giv en farm is mainly of one variety, it is bet ter to begin cutting before it reaches even this state of maturity. Timothy and red- top head ibout the same time. If we wait for the appearance of the blossoms before we begin, we shall have the matured seed and the weedy and almost worthless stalk before the end is reached. In the matter of clover, if it stands erect, it is safe to wait till one-lialf the blossoms begin to turn, never later. The other half will be so per fected ir. growth that there will be no loss in quant.ty or quality. If lodged it should be cut much earlier, as the decay it the root will more than counterbalance any growth elsewhere. In regard to grasses not specified, the same general rule will apply, bearitg in mind that it is always better to cul considerable before it reaches perfect maturity rather than considerable afterward. Next and most important, how shall this grass be cured so that it can be packed in bulk and be kept without injury until such ti:ne as it is needed for food, and yet retain most of its n itrative properties? The best way, as it seems to me is this : If there is reasonable promise of a fair day, the mowing machine should be started at five o'clock the night before, and again as soon as thedew is oil' in the morning. Ky 11, all the f.-ass that can be handled will be cut. Then, transfer at once the horse irotn t.ie iiactiine to the tedder, and iro over the i:cld once before dinner. At 1 o'clock, start the tedder the second time. Domestic Recipes. To Toast Ham. After boiling it well, take the skin oi cover the top thick with bread-crumbs, and brown in an oven. 0 Nice Cheap Cake.

The Michigan Farmer, letroit, one of the best of our Western agricultural ex changes, has this about top dressing: "Here is a farm that a few years ago would hardly raise feed enough on live acres to keep a sb.gle head of neat stock. I'y means of tile draining and lop dressing, the heaviest crops of clover and grass are now being raised, mid a field of clover that hail been sown lat year promised a crop that would yield at the rate of two and a half tons to 'dire? t ais per acre from the first cutting. It was a soli.) ma-s of vege tation that a mouse could hardlv find its way into. The manure on this farm is j soaked at all sea-ons when wanted wilhl the liuuid manure from the vards aval i barns, and this is applied as a top dressing to the grass fields." We know of a lot containing an acre up on which the growth of grass was raised from less than half a ton to over two tons an acre by the spreading, for three years, eight loads of manure annually.

Hastings, who is one of t he d l i els ti, uu enuuiit. in slip pi villi; ; cattle tortile llust-m market, o;i e his J evpciionec and observation in relation I to Ihttenint; stock, at a late nieetiiitr of the Caleb u, ia Ci unit v Kai i nets' Club. lie said the main object of the farm er was to oe; the most out of his f idder. It docs not pay to feed o-r:1i,i to a poor creature, olleth.lt does led take oil llesh rapidly. Fanners will do better to dispose ,t sued stoek tor what it ; will bniiur, and procure animals of ,,, j style. He believed that one-half of the ' grain fed w as wasted not by bein fed to o,,od cattle. Another important point is farmers do not feed heavy eliomgli. He would commence with as much feed as they could boar at first, and then increase. In feeding twelve ipiarts of meal, the last fimr quarts are worth twice as much as the first four for fattening; purposes. Some farmers complain that they do not get pav for the or:iin they teed out, but lie has not noticed that it was only those who fed liirht that thus complained. Whether the animal was to be fed a IoiilT or slu U't time, he w ould recommend heavy feod intr. Mr. Hastings said lie knew tioth- lno lietter than corn meal. 1 lie col) is not worth much if anything. Those persons of w In un lie purchased fat stock, who were the most successful, and made ii the most profitable, were those who fed meal largely. If a farmer litis po tatoes or other roots, it is well enough to fee 1 those in part, but a farmer will do better to exchange some of his roots for corn than to feed roots altogether. It is important to feed regularlv anil J not too often, as the stock will eat and lie down and ruminate. It is better to j feed cattle but three times a day, and i sheep but once. Oil CLARK IIORSF..

A. CLARK. Gluver, May 2", lSTO. L'2w4 Caustic'Lime for Insects. There are but few insects that can with stand a doso of freshly slacked lime. We always keep a quantity of it on hand ready for sprinkling over plants infested with slugs or bugs of any kind, and it has al ways proved effectual if applied at the right time. Last year, the white pine worm attacked nearly every pine tree on our place, but two or three dustings of lime when the trees were wet with dew banish ed or destroyed this pest, which in a few days, if unchecked, would have stripped every leaf from our trees. The asparagus beetle appeared upon our beds of this veg etable in countless numbers, but a few dos es of lime have made them leave, and the plants look healthy and vigorous at the present time. We have driven from our garden the slug, cabbage flea, and numerous other pesta by the use of this same material, and we have nevei observed that the plants were damaged by its use. A correspond ent at the West says he has entirely check ed the ravages of the Colorado potato bug by freely using lime upon the plants, and we have no doubt that others might be equally successful by a persistent use of this material. Lime is so cheap that no one can object to its use on that score, and even if it fails to kill the insects, it will usually do the land good wherever applied Hearth and Home. Sawdust for Mulching Strawberries. Quite often the question is asked us: "Will sawdust make a good mulching for strawberries'?" We thought so once, and gave a thorough trial, and learned better. It will certainly keep the soil moist and the weeds down, and the berries will grow to an enormous size ; but when a heavy rain comes, the small, sharp particles of wood will be dashed over, and stick into the berries until they look like a "fretful porcupine." If one wants to "blow" on his big strawberries, let him try fresh saw dust, and he will find it a necessity instead of a pleasure, for before he can eat the fruit he will have to blow from it the ad hering sawdust. Old, partially decompos ed sawdust may answer, but we have tried the fresh article to oursatisfaction. Hearth and Hone. Unfermented Manure. ! .Many excellent farmers have an idea ' that manure to be most efficient in j raising crops should be well rotted ; but this is a mistake. Jlanitre looses i a very heavy percentage. Fresh ma nure, ilnjiiintr with animal nrine.liauleil directly from the stable on the land and ploughed under, is worth nearly double that which has decomposed to sapona ceous consistency. When it is conven ient for fanners to haul manure on corn ground from the stable as it is made, it saves handling it twice, ami forwards the work in busy springtime. Xo fears need be entertained that the atmosphere will carry off the strength of the ma nure if left on the surface. The only danger to be apprehended by this meth od will be in ease of the ground lioing frozen and covered with snow and ice when the manure is applied ; if upon sloping land, the virtue of manure might wash away; but on level ground there is no exception to this plan of operation during the entire tall and w l n t e r season.- MORGAN BLOOD, : DANIEL J:i3STEH!

This horse is a beautiful Blood Bay, Mark ' mane and tail; stands lo hands high; weiphs j 1000 pounds, in fair llesh ; is H years old this ! season; smooth as a colt; never was sick a mo- i nient in lus life ; was sired by young Kamsey ; , he by old Ramsey, and he by the old Crane !

"A choking horse may often be relieved by pouring a quantity of water into the ear of the animal, which will cause him to shake his head violently, and the obstruc tion will be speedily dislodged ; if necessa ry, repeat the operation, but the first dose will generally suffice." ALBANY BOY. GcriDfmtomi Tth- Beets. The culture of beets is said to lie worth more to the country as a fertil izer than the product directly derived from the treatment of the root, the waste lulp proving more valuable than the sugar. It is fed to baroed cattle in large quanties. It is stated that in France, where the business has grown to enormous dimensions, the increase in cattle on account cf beet pulp is wonderful. In the district of country surrounding the city Valenciennes, where, before the production of beet sugar, seven hundred oxen were the total amount, eleven thousand five hun dred were the total amount raised last year. But this is nor all. This enor mous increase of stock has so much advanced the fertility of the land that one hundred and ninety thousand bush els more wheat are raised in the same district per annum than were ever rais ed in previous years. N. Y. Commer cial livMttin. There was shipped from Geneseo, for Chicago and Peoria, recently, 25,000 bush els of corn, 3,500 bushels of wheat, 6,500 bushels of oats, and 500 barrels of flour.
