Urnpo Notcs. Jlr. W. W. Dunham, an aotlve member of tho Jlsiue 1'omologlcal Society, reaJ, last winter, a paper upon grape culture from whlch we makebelow some llberal extracts. We print them because they agreo vety closely with our own ezperience in Orleans county, Vt., whero for many years we have foand no difliculty in growing the early varl eties of graper with entire succesa. Mr. Dunham says : "I am cultirating more than forty kinth of grapes, but shall men tion only such kinds as have frulted with me. Among the black varietlea, I have the Florence, Moore's Early, Worden, Cottage, Kumelan, ltogers Xo. 4, Talman or Karly Champion, Janeaville, Hartford, Blood Seed ling, Isabella, Concord, Clinton, etc. Tho Florence is a new grape, but is no addition, except for its eitreme earliness. I thlnk the Talman a profitable grape to cultivate, thougb not of the best quality. Its earli ness, hardiness, strong growth and prodnc tiveness entitle it to a place in every vine yard, and I mlght saythesameof the Jancs ville and Blood Seedling. In 1880 I had them ripe the last of August. The Wilder is a large, showy variety of very good qual ity, healthy, vigorous, and very productive, ripening before Concord. I cannot speak too highly of Moore's Early, Worden and Cottage. If I remember correctly, they are all three seedlings of the Concord, and, like their parent, hardy and productive. Tlie Cottage ripens a little before the Concord, the Worden about a week before tbe Cot tage, and Moore's Early a week before the Worden. I think Worden is one of the best grapes I ever saw, The Kumelan I consider a very nice, early grape and a good bearer. Among the red grapes I have the Brighton, Delaware, Dracut Amber, Muscadine, Stew art's Seedling, ltogers Nos, 3, 0, 15 and 22. I have beeu told that I conld not rlpen the Brighton, but I exhibited quite ripe speci mens at our county fair October 1st, and I consider tbe past season a very poor one for grapes. I think it is earlier than the Con cord, of cxtra quality, and a great addition to our list of early grapes. I have ten vines of the Delaware, which is well known asone of our best grapes, very hardy and produc tive. My Dracut Ambers literally covered the trellises with fruit the past season. I think it is the most productive grape that I ever saw, though it has a slight fozy taste. I thlnk lt a very desirable variety. The Btewart's Seedling is a new grape that originated with the Shakers at I'oland. It is a large, early, sweet grape, but very fozy. ltogers No. 3 and 0 (Massasoit and I.lnd ley) have done remarkably well wlth me, and appear to be as hardy and free from dis ease as our seedling varieties, and are of the best quality. The No. 10 and 22 (Agawam and Salem) were inclined to mildew the past season, but they both ripened ln 1880, and were entirely free from it. I consider the quality of the Salem the very best. Of the white varieties I bave the Lady, He becca, Croton and Martha. I thlnk the Lady is the best white grape for cultivation, belng of eztra quality, vigorous and hardy. Kebecca and Croton are splendid grapes, but not quite so strong growers as the Lady. The Martha Is a strong grower, but the fruit cracked badly with me the past season." (Jucrnscy Cattle. A good many Vermont farmers haveseen, at the stato fairs, the cattle of this breed exhibited by Er-Govoruor Smitb, and have llked their lookB. All experience has ehown them to be ezcellent dairy beasts, quite equal to Jerseys, while ftrst class anlmala of the breed are by no means so costly. The Guernsey Is a native of that one of the Channel Islands (Jereey, Guernsey, Alderuey, Sark and Herm,) whose natue lt bears. It is a larger breed than Jersey. No one after Beeing a herd of (iuernseys will confound them with any other strain. They are us ually fifteeu to tbirty per cent larger than Jersey cattle, and are easlly bred to a prime size. Their color is orange red, or a yellow fawn and white, the latter color being very pure and clear. Tbe two comblue very cbarmingly, and among trees, or on a green hillside they are remarkably attractive to the eye. Tbls, coupled with tbelr eztreme docility, will wlu them many f rlends among the ownera of country places who are agri culturally lusthetic. They are large, free mllkers, and maintain their Itow for many months, it being frequently a dilHoult thing to dry them at all, many milking contlnu ously past several calvings, The mllk, cream aud butter at all Beasons are of rouch more marked color than aro derived fiom any other cattle, and wlnter butter, wheu a proportion of (iuernsey mllk is usod, has a oharacter quite its own, In judging (iuern seys great attentlon Is glven to the richness of the amimalas eviuced by the quality and color of the skln, whlch is very jellow, and by the horus and eats. The horns of good anlmals are waxy and soft, the hoofs like tortoise shell, aud the ears iuside are as gnldeit as the inside of awatch case. The gradea from C.uernsey bulls are large and very well formed. They are easily mado large veal or early boef if treated for theso purjoses, and tlie heifers make most ad mirablo cows lor family use or for butter dalries. They are all hardy and koep easlly ou as rouglt food as will sustalu any milking aulinal. At recent New Knglaud fairs (iuernseys baveooinmauded much attentlon, aud at the last New York Stato fair n (iuern sey cow wou the sweepatakoa prko orer a strong eompotltion as the best dairy cow of any Dreeu. i ne prizo lor graucs was also awarded ln H half nunrnaav. llrnnt. atM. bitlons In Eugland have aliSo mado a marked impression In their lavor. New StrnTfberrlcs. It bas bcen charged that the new Manches ter strawberry, so highly pralsed, is only the old Ilovey's Seedling, an ulterly worthless sort in most Iocalltles. Mr. Ilovcy so charged ln hls last catalogue, but now admtts that he was mistaken, saylng " I must frankly aoknowledge my great error, for thera ls no comparison or resemblance, only In the sin gle fact that both are plstllate." Mr. Hovey is a vain, basty, and arbltrary old gentle man, but he is a gentleman, and so shows himself In this case. He is one of our great hortlculturiats, and we wish he had origin ated the Manchester, as a crowning trlumph of hls long and useful life. For we fully belleve that this new berry is the long-Iooked-for equal of the Wilson in productivenesa and flrmness, wlth superior quality. The Windsor Chlef Is another pistllato straw berry that Is a close rival of the Wilson, be ing equally productive, wlth a much louger season. We have been greatly pleased over our experience wlth it this year, when nearly all our beds were almost an entire failure from winter-killlng. The Windsor gave a full crop, a last picklng of which we had for breakfast this morning, August 2. Though a plstilate, the Windsor was thoroughly fer tllizcd, in a bed two hundred feet from any stamlnato klnd, and the crop was immense. The fruit ls carrled high on strong stems, is of very regnlar, nearly round, shape, fine color, and moderately good quality, though not high flavored. Tbe Crescent is enor mously productive, and of good size. Tlie quality is only so-so, and the stems areweak, so that mulch isrcquired to keep the berries from thedirt. The Bldwell wlll, we think, prove a failure, being productive only ln favored places, and having that fault of many hlghly-puffed sorts of not coloring over the tip tintll long after the base of the berry is colored. The Glondale is a large, coarse, and not very productive variety. Wo have dropped it, and shall substitute Windsor Chlef for that and Kentucky, as a slandard late sort.

These figures mean that, by means of gambling sales ln which there ls no delivery, the whole crop of the Unlted States ls sold for speculative pur poses every week in the year.

" Well, yes," said my host, Captain Stan lev, as brave a soldier as ever drew a sabre, " I have seen some hard times slnce I have been out here, and so have we all. A man in our profession can't pass five years of his life on the plalns without getting some hard knocbs, I tell you." We had just flnished a late supper, and having drawn our chairs about the wide fire place, had fillcd our plpes preparatory to in dulging in a social sinoke. There were a dozen of us ln the room, all except myaelf wearlng Uncle Sam's " honored blue." I was at that tlme correspondent for an east ern paper, and had been ordered to the fron tier to "write np" the campalgn which General Crook was about to nndertake againat the Cheyennes who had broken away fiom their reservation. Finding that a detachment led by Captain Stanley, the commander of old Fort Frazier, waa expected to bear the brunt of the work, I jolned my fortunea with it, accompanied lt on a peril ous scout of fourteen hundred miies, and we had but just returned to the fort. We had got back, too, just in time to escape what western men call a " blizzard." And what is that ? It ls an old-fashioned New England snow storm a dozen times intensi fled. The wind blows as if it would sweep everything before lt, the cold is eo piercing that one shivers over the hottest fire, and the air ia filled, not with snow, but with sharp needles of ice, which seem to threaten destruction to every living thing exposed to its f ury. We were all snugly housed, our jaded horses were munchlng their barley in their warm stables, the sentries were stand ing grim and silent in their boxes, and those of us who were fortunate enough to have no duty to call us out into the storm, spread our hands over the cheerful wood fire and congratulated ourselves on the safe ending of our tedious journey. I said there were a dozen of us in the room ; but I must not forget to mention Captain Stanley 's body-guard, four magnifi cent Scotch deerhounds, which lay Btretched out in front of the fire. They were large ahaggy anlmals, with immense bone and muscle, and bore on their bodies numerous evidences of the battles through which they had passed. They were terrible fighters, and the ease with which they could overtake and pull down an antelope was surprislng. They accompanied us on the scout, and I could not imagine why it was that they were treated with so much kindness and consideration by every member of the com mand. On this particular night I waa to find out. " How the wind blows I" exclaimed a young lieutenant from his seat in the chim ney corner. " I declare, it will take the Btockade up by the roots." " Yes, it is a wild night ; and I hadn't been on the plalns as long as you have, Jack," said tbe captain, addressing hlmself to the lieutenant, " before I was called upon to face just such a storm as this without shelter of any kind, except wbat was to be fouud in the hills, and under circumstances that were calculated to freeze the blood ln the veius of the bravest man that ever stepped. Those hours of horror turued my hair white as you see it now, and made me an old man before my time. I cannot re call them without shuddering." Tbe captain puffed vigorously at hls well-blackened brier root for a few minutes, and after making sure that it waa well lighted, continued : " I always was fond of horses, dogs and guns, and I can scarcely remember the time when I did not own some of the very best. My pointers could not bo beaten, my pony would take a fence almost as well as anv of my father's thoroughbreds, and my little fowling piece was aure death to any bird that got up within any reasonable distance, When I left home to go to West l'oint it almost broke my heart to part from my pets; but my uncle, who waa an ardent sportsman, asaured me that if I would pass a creditable examination at the end of my school term, he would present me with a pack of dogs that would more tban take the place of the one I left behind ; my father, a veteran of the Mexican war and a great ad mirer of the cavalry, told me that lt I would tii mysen to enter tnat nrancn ot tne aer vice, he would clve me the finest horse in his stable, and my mother said she would give me another.

" As soou as I receivod my commtssion I waa ordered to report to the commanding ollicer of Fort Scott for duty. The ollicera were all lovers of the chase, and at the slght of my horsea and hounda they received me with open arma. In company with the neighboring ranchmen, we bunted almost constantlyi there was little scoutlng to be done, lor tne inuians were qutetly settled on their reservation, and wheu winter came and the first snow covered the grouud, the sport we had in coursing antelope was Blmpiy magnlticent. " Early one niornintr, while I was retunb ing to the post with a freahly kllled antelope sluug across my saddle, I noticed that my eyea burned and that the aurf ace of the snow, from which the brlght raya of the sun were rellected with almost dazzling brilllancy, seemeu to te coverea witn uoating specKs. Now and then something that looked like a cholu danced across the range of my vision, and this would be f ollowed by multltudea of mlntaturo pln-wneeis ami sky-rockets. J knew that the glare of the aun on the snow had ailected my eyea, but I thought nothlng of it, for I was ioolish enough to belleve tnat lt would wear ou lu iitne. " When I reached the fort I fouud there waa a ruoner from the Ued Eagle agency, who bad brougbt informatlou whlch ren dered lt necessary that a courier should be sent wlth ditpatches to Fort Morris. The dtapatches wero ready and the colonel was waiting for me. I changed horses, received my instructlons and set out at once with my Ilenry rille tlung at my back, and my hounda trottlng along before me, For two or three daya I had noticed a suspicious baok of cJouds hanging ln tlie northern horizon, aud the colouel had warued me to make haste for u storm was brewiug. Acting upon his advice I pushed ahead aa rapidly aa posslble, shadiug my burniug eyea with my haud, and now and then calliug to my dogs, which seemed inclined to turn about and give bat tle to a pack of gauut aud huugry wolres that was following behind me. I saw wlth no little uueasiness that although the south wind was blowing strongly, that threateulug bank of clouda lu the nortit was rialng rap idly againat it. The Arctlo Klng was corn ing lu his inight, and J knew tliat the storm would overtake me long before I could reach my destination. I bezan to feel timlcl. I did not like the perslstency wlth vv'.ilch those famine breedora hung on my trall. There was sometning omlnoua in it. "Just before dark I reached my camplng ground. It was a sheltered nook among the Hills, bare of snow, and there waa a spring ot food water close by. After puttlng the blan eton the raareand feeding her and maklng her aa comfortable as I could for the night, I bullt a fire under the lee of a rock, and wlth my dogs about me sat down to eat my supper. Just then tho war wlth the ele- ments Degan. witn a roar and a rusli that was terrific, tho advance gnard of the Arc tlo forces Btruck the south wind and drove lt back. Then there was a lull. such as sometimes occnrs after a battle when the op- posing lorces are gatnering tnemseivcs lor a decislve effort, and wlth another mighty roar the final onslaught was made. The blizzard waa in full blast. The air was lit erally filled with ice. It grew colder and colder every mlnute and my fire seemed to give out no heat. I could not look at the blaze, for the paln ln my eyes had increased unlil it was almost nnbearable. Finally I wrapped my blankets around me and lay down to sleep. " How long I slumbered I do not know. I waa awakened by one of my does. whlch came up aud Hckod my face. I started up aua tnrew ou tne DianEets. lt was pltch dark. The blizzard was still raeine fear- fully, aud the wolves had approached eo close to my carnp that 1 could hear the pat- ier 01 tneir ieec as tney ran anout among tne scrub oaks, and my faithful dogs now and then gave a growl to warn them off. A Btamptng among the brutes told me that my mare waa rendered nneasy by their presence, and I thought I would tro out and speak to her. I looked toward the place where my fire had been klndled, but could not see a slugle coal. It had burned Itself completely out. Gropiug my way on my hands and sneea to tne pue ot luel 1 had gatnered be fore going to sleep, I picked up a stlck and began poking around for the coals. Fres ently a sharp stlnglng sensation in my haud told me that I had found one. I could feel the paln, bnt I could not see the coal, and yet lt must have bcen a live one, or else it could not have burned me. With trem bling hands and a terrible einklng at my heart I took out a match and lighted lt. I could distinctly hear it burning, but I could not see the blaze, although I held the match untll my fingers were scorched. Then I dropped it, and with a scream of terror jumped to my feet. Great heaven I I was snow-blind. " With the experience I now have I know that my situation would have been desper ate if I had been in full posseasion of my sight ; as it was I gave myself up for lost. I was paralyzed wlth horror, and for a time I could not move. The actions of one of my doga aroused me. He bounded forward and began a terrible battle with one of the wolves. With another cry of terror I groped my way back to my bed, and catching up my rille succeeded after a desperate scram ble in placlng myself on the top of the rock. By thia time the battle between my doga and the wolves waa in full progress, and a fierce one it was, too. I lired shot after shot into the air in the hope of frightening the famine-breeders, but they were rendered too desperate by hunger to fear the smell of gunpowder. How earnestly I prayed that my noble dogs mlght succeed in fighting off their savage foea I 1 shouted to them words of encouragement to which they had never failed to respond during a hunt, and finally I knew that they were gaining the victory. They drove the wolves away from me, but the ravenous auimala were not to be cheated. They turned their attention to my horse. I fairly cried as I stood there sightless and helpless on my rock and listeued to the struggles of the frlghtened beaat as she strove with desperate energy to break her f astenlngs. To my great joy she succeeded, and with a shrill neigh of terror set off up the valley. I Leard her hoofs clattering over the bare eround and the snarls and velps of the savage pack aa it followed close to her heels and then all waa still. I called to my faithful guardiana and each oue answered to hia name by a joyful bark, all except Maior, whose responso was a mournful whine. Poor fellow I He had been Beverely nandled, "I did not delude myself with the hope that I had seeu the last of the wolves. I knew that my steed, fleet and endurincr as she was, would in the end be overtaken and torn in pieces by her tirelesa pursuers, and that having whetted their anpetites thev would return in suflicient numbers to over- rmer my guards and make and end of me. bad always prayed for a soldier's death, and the thought that I must give up my life in this horrible way was agonizing. "I cannot tell how long I stood there waittng for the wolves to come back and put me out of my misery, for I waa daed with terror. I fell into a sort of stupor, from which I was aroused by a bark from one of my hounds, and (I know every note uttered by these animals as well as I know tne souna oi my own volce, lt was a bark of welcome. Ilelp was near. Mv first feel- ing was one of amazement, and before I had recovered from it 1 heard a ritle shot, and then another and another. The whole pack broke out into a joyous baying.

" I remained a full month at Mr. Butler's hospitable ranche beforo I was able to re turn to the post. He and two of hia neigh bora had been out after black-taila and were caught in the blizzard, but knowing that they must reach home or run the rlek of be ing snowed up in the hills, they boldly f aced it, and a fortunate thing it was for me that tney dld so. iney saw tne wolves devour ice my mare. and took the back trail ex- pectine to find my maneled bodv, When they diacovered me lying there behind that rocit, aurrounded oy my meedlng nounds, no words could express their astonishment.
