THE VERMONT FARMER : FRIDAY, MAY1 18, 1877.
I lllOAY, MAY 18, 1877. To the Patrons of the Vcraont Farmer. During nearly botcd years, I havo pub lMicd tho Viruont Farmeii, endeavoring to supply my many patrons with a homo ag ricultural journal that should prcoludo tho necessity of sending out of tho stato for such papers. Itut vrhllo tho kindly words of many patrons and tho generous contributions to its columns by many gifted writers has been a source- of pleasuro, tho limited circu lation and advertising patronago bestowed upon any local paper, even in such an in telligent and progressive stato as Vermont, renders it Impossible to compoto in variety of matter, in bomity of illustrations, in com prehensivo markot reports, or in tho monoy and talent lavished upon tho ngricultura1 papers of immenso circulations published for tho country at largo. I havo found, too, by costly expericnoo that it is impossible- for a country paper, howovcr ably and conscien tious p conducted to givo its subscribers as muoh valuo for their subscription monoy as ono that has a broader Gold of patronago and a larger fund of cash and varied talout to draw from. Desiring to deal fairly with my subscrib ers, I havo dono what I think thoy will con sider a very liberal thing for them, in selling and transferring tho wholo subscription list and patronaco of ths Vkruont Famish to the American Cultivator of Boston, an eight-pace illustrated wcokly paper that stands deservedly at the head of tho ngtl cultural press of America; a papor .with i circulation nearly ton times larger than that of tho Farmer in tho days of its greatest prosperity ; ono that spends on each weekly issue ten times tbo money that any country papor can afford to, and employs an editor' ial staff, reporters and correspondents, un surpassed in ability, energy and knowlcdgo of public ncods. In making ohoico of tho American Cultivator as tbo paper to which I most desired to transfer tho list of tho Farmer, I also had in mind tho fact that tho number of Vcrmontcrs already taking that paper is much larger than tho subscription list in this stato of any other agricultural paper, and henco believed tho American Cultivator would be tho natural choice ot tho larger portion of tho Farmer subscribers, Upon receiving a copy of tho Cultivator I am suro tho fiicnds of tho Farmer will heartily sanction tho choice. Tho American Cultivator will bo fur- nished free to all subscribers who havo for tho Farmer in advanco until tbo paid timo such subscription expires. Ono copy of tbo issuo of May 19 will bo sent frco to each subscribers to the Farmer and as this issuo is tho lost number of tho Vermont Farmer every subscriber will rcceivo the American Cultivator in its stead as long as ho may wish to continue it. The undersigned respectfully desires jour carelul examination and cordial reception and support of the Cultivator, fully believ ing that you will bo satisfied with tho change and in making tho abovo announcement de sires to add that ho will continuo his fonneo tion with the combined issuo and hopes meet many of his old friends and subscribers personally during tho coming season. ItOTAL CUMM1N03. To the Subscribers of the Vermont Farmer. Having mada arrangements to publish th Vermont Farmer in connection with th American Cultivator, and to supply news papers free to all thoso who have paid for th Farmer in advanco until tho expiration such subscriptions,wo desiro that all subscrib crs may carefully examine our issuo dated May 19, which has been scut frco to them and in futuro continuo to rcceivo tho Ameri ican Cultivator as their standard agricul tural and family paper. Sinco wo already have a larger number of subscribers in Vermont than in any other state, wo feel that our previous efforts havo been appreciated, and wo can only promiso renewed exertions in making a paper worthy the enterprise and intelligence of Vermont agriculturists. We desire to call special attention to few leading facts regarding tho American Cultivator. It is tho largest weekly agri cultural paper 111 America and contains tho greatest variety of valuable matter. Eaoh number is handsomely illustrated, and pains aro spared to stamp each issuo with typographical excellence In addition to its agricultural department a vast amount of valuable reading matter is presented for tho family circle, tho ladies and tho youth, making it a welcome guest to every household. Its market reports con Stituto tho most important featuro ef tho paper and aro admitted by all to bo tho most complete, trustworthy and comprehensive published in any paper. In theso days rapid fluctuations in tho prices of produc such reports are worth to any farmer th wbolo cost of tbo paper. as me (jest oviucnco, not only ot our in tention but of our pcrformanco is in tho pa per itself, wo hopo for a careful reading and a continuance or the same generous patron ago so long bestowed upon tho Vermont Farmer, and wo shall continuo sending tho consolidated paper to tho address of each subscriber unless properly requested to dis continue tho same. Very respectfully, The American Cultivator. All payments of subscriptions to tho Ver mont Farmer should hereafter bo Bent to Doston, addressed as follows : "Vermont Farmer, aro of the American Cultivator." All arrearages of tho Vermont Farmer aro 82 per year. Tho price of the American Cultivator which our subscribers will re ceive in place of tho Farmer alter this week, is $2.00 a year when paid in advance, or 82.50 per year when paid toward the end of of the year, so that a remittance of 84 will pay a year's arrearages on tho Farmer and a year's advanco for the Cultivator. Thcro is a funny rivalry between the towns of St. l'eter and ho Sueur, Minn., a circular having been issued by business men of tho former place to tho farmers in that vicinity, advbivg them to avoid LcSueur in marketing their produce, becauso an antMiquor-eclliug ordinanco had been adopted thero, whilo at St. l'ctcr tbero is no such oppression of tho boncst husbandman. Lo Sueur reports that tho publishers of the statement falsify know ingly ; that liquor licenses are issuod, and ovcry facility afforded farmers to till them selves with bug juice, ad lib. Protection, to Fish and Game Under tho provisions of our new gamo law, most of tho trout brooks aro boing pla carded. And for tho first timo in tho his tory of the stato eomo woll-dcfincd and in tclllgcnt action is being taken to replenish our streams, and to mako choap ono of tho most delicious and now most cxponsive, arti cles of diet. Of courso tho now law is, to greater or less extent, an experiment, and works hardship in a fow rases. Yet tho ro suit which is sought to bo obtained is bo ob viously desirable, that wo think all will con cedo tho propriety of at least a trial in this dircotion. And whilo efforts aro being mado to re plenish our streams, we aro pleased to learn that in somo sections of tho sta te at least, tho stato associations and camo clubs aro also moving in tho matter of restocking tho mountain lands of Vermont with deer. The law in regard to their protection is very stringent, and as tho clubs aro at a consid crablo expenso in tho matter, it safo to say that thoy will prosecuto all violations of tho law with tho crcatcst vigor. Wo quote from tho law : "It shall not bo lawful to pursuo, tako, kill or destroy any wild doer in this state, from and after tho passaco of this act, until tho first day of September, 1880. And if any person, during said pe riod, shall pursuo, take, kill or destroy with in this state, any wild deer, or shall havo in his possession any wild doer or part thereof so taken or killed, ho shall bo llablo to fino of City dollars tor oach and ovcry deer so kilted, taken, destroyed, or had in poss ession. And tho possession of tho meat or hido or any part thcro- ot ot any wild uccr, by any person in this state, charged with any of tho offences mentioned in this scotion shall bo prcsump tivo evidcuco that tho person so in possession ot said meat, hide or part thereof, is guilty of said offence. It shall bo lawful for any person to kill any dog found pursuing any wild deer in this state, during tho period named in tho third section of this act, provided such doz bo killed whilo in tho actual pursuit of deer." During tho past fow years many deer havo been killed in tho northeast part of the state, and somo outrageous cases of wanton destruction aro reported. Wo trust that tho proper authorities will sco that such cases aro not repeated, or if thoy aro, that somo tcrribla examples aro mada of the per pctrators, It is a hundred-fold easier to re stock our hills whero deer aro to bo found at the present timo, than to exterminate those which wo possess, and then have to im port them from other sections of tho country for that purpose. A word to the wise shonld bo sufficient, and tho unwiso should bo made to pay for their folly. Montpelicr Watchman. Increase of Business. There can bo no doubt that tho volumo of business in tho country is steadily rising, the first place, tho internal revenue, by which tbe English aro accustomed to guago tho condition of tho people, is steadily ris ing. In tho second place, tho imports which havo fallen steadily for about thrco years, havo begun to rise again. Wo took notico of tho fact that thoso for Maroh at tho port of Now York showed an inercaso and now thosa for April show a still great er increase, namely, from 23,700,000 tho samo month of last year, Si-S.UUU.UUU, exclusive ot specio, an in crease of 14 per cent. Taking tho first fou: months of tho year at New York, the im ports of merchandise arc almost exactly equal to tho imports of mcrchandiso in the samo timo last yoar. Tbo specio rcccip for the samo time wcro 80,.!00,000, against $1,570,000 last year. Tho volumo of im ports indicates two things, tho extent which foreign manufactures and labor tako tho place of our own, and tho extent to which wo can afford to buy foreign products which we can't produco at all in this country, An inercaso in tho former respect may prejudicial to domcstio industry ; in tho lat ter not so. Wo find that the English ex ports ot steel nails to tnis aro increasing, which is not on tho wholo a favorablo sign but most of tho inercaso in imports is in ar ticles under tho free list, that is, thoso which do not compete with our own industries. Tho increased consumption of imported good bearing duty also would bo indicative of in creasing moans of expenditure among th people Tho exports at Now York aro con stantly rising, except in specio. For fou mouths tho exports from that point have been $80,050,000 of mcrchandiso and $5,500,000 of specie, against $79,809,000 of mcrchandiso and $15,207,000 of specie for tho samo timo last year. It is a common experience of traders at this timo that, whilo tho volumo of thoir business increases, tho profits of it aro still small, and this is truo of businoss goner ally. Tho volumo of it is increasing, tho body of unemployed labor is diminishing every day, moro men aro getting adjusted to tho now state of things. For tho mo mcnt, the actual cxpcricnco of tho day not encouraging, and yet it is constantly im proving. As this inercaso in tho employ' mcnt of labor and of capital goes on, pcopl ultimately havo moro monoy to spend, Tho first step in the lino of recovery from d prcssion is to re-establish industry and find new places for tho idle. That process is go ing on quite rapidly Tho next will bo for tho newly employed to bcoomo spenders and accumulators of capital, and as this process succeeds tbo other, cons'imption will gam upon production. Print works aro coming moro and moro to run upon contract and to suspend whenover business is slack. A Fall River contributor to the Now York Bulletin says the contracts for print cloths in that market called for 47,000 pieces weekly April, 45,000 in May and 43,000 in June whereas, for tho five weeks already elapsed tho avcrago deliveries havo bcon 79,000 pieces per week, and tbo market is now firm ar 4a4j, according to the terms. Theso two processes, tho ro-cmployment of labor and the resumption of expenditure, are not, of courso successive in point of time, but go on together in varying stages under varying conditions. They aro both going on now. and from them wo shall get a higher stato of prosperity. Tho South is reported to bo very des pondent at the prospect of high prices for breadstuff's and low for cotton. It is rather too early, however, to assume that cotton will bo low in conscqneuco of tho war, Turkey and Russia are both largo consum ers of cotton goods. Daring tho Crimean war our exports wcro largo, but prices ranged higher during tho three years 1853- 1-5 than in 1852, With tho current econ omics and improvements in culture, wo doubt not the South will bo ablo to meet the crisis, if it should provo to be ono, without material detraction from her pros perity. Springfield Republican, Possibilities of ths War. Tho Turkish war must for a long timo bo regarded everywhere with profound interest. Pnvato expressions of opinion from huropo, and somo or tho English papers, show an apprehension of a gcnoral complication. Thcro are great preparations in England, and great anxieties evorywhoro. Tho ques tion which excites apprehension and cxpee tation is whether Russia intends territorial onquest, whether tho Czar really mcam to try for Constantinople and tho Mediterran ean. It is observed that in his manifest ho said nothing on this point. But tho Grand Duko Nicholas, in his address to tbo army, announced distinctly that the Russians did not march for conquest. Yet every quid nuno in ovory cafo in Europo asks, with a knowing shako of tho head, "That is all very well J but how docs Russia mean to pay herself for tho oxpenso of tho war 7" Her ostcnsiblo object is tho protection of tho Christian subjoots of tbo Porto. In tho Confcrcnco shn stated what arrangements would be necessary. If, now, after hard fighting and immenso loss, Turkey offers, as a condition of peace, tho arrangement which sho refused at tho coofcrcnoc, is Russia like ly to accept it? Will Bho not naturally say that Turkoy has obliged her to loso largo numbers ot men and enormous trcasuro in order to pcrsuado Turkoy that sho could do no better, and that as Russia has now shown that sho was in tho right, Bho must bo paid for her trouble and expenso ? This is but reasonable Tho guarantees of protection for tho Christians which would havo been satisfactory beforo tho war, will not satisfy after. Tho eternal talo of tho Sibyllino books will bo repeated. What would the further proposition probably bo but Russian protection of tho principalities 7 And what, in turn, would that bo but the ad vanco of Russia to tho Balkan 7 All this is not only possible, but probable, and it is the perception or it which is filling up tho English regiments and setting tho British dockyard humming. This is something also which Austria could not favor. It was tho suspicion of such Russian designs that pro duccd tho secret treaty for Turkish protcc tion, between Austria, England and Franco, after tho Treaty of Paris. Tho practical result would then apparently bo tho active co-operation of England, Austria, and Tur key, whilo Franco held Germany passivo On tho other band, there is to bo consider ed tho force of the feeling in England which is represented by Mr. Gladstone. Thus far it has practically restrained tho government which has notified Turkey that, under exist ing circumstances, sho must not expect Brit- 1st aid. It is now said, howovcr, and by in telligent men, that if Russia threatens break through into tho Mediterranean and to throw herself bpon the English line of com munication with India, England will eager ly go to war. Tho "sentimental" and "hu mamtarian" and "Christian" fooling will be swept away by tho national feeling, and England will fight Russia for her Eastern cmpiro as zealously as sho ever fought France. It Is asserted that Mr. Gladstone himself docs not appear to trust tho fueling to which ho appeals, and that if bo were re ally in earnest, ho would attempt tbo over throw of tbo Disraeli Administration. But that it would come to this, should tho ad ministration evidently intend war, thcro can be no doubt. Then wo should see precisely tho force of conflicting sentiments in Eng land. Certainly it would bo an oxtraordi nary spectacle, that of Protestant England led by a descendant of Spanish Jews, allied with Roman Catholio states to protect Mo hummcdan oppression of Christians.

Waring, in his paper in tho Atlantio .Monthly, docs not givo any artihcia 1 color ing to tho "Life Work of tho Eastern Far mcr," but on tho wholo makes tbat avoca tion about as attractive as tho avcrago of those in which man is compelled to toil and strivo to plan and economize to got his daily bread. The labor Is hard, but on tho wholo Col. Waring concludes that i'- may bo as Bafcly relied upon to givo as cortaiu returns as any other. Tho writer treats tho lifo work of the Eastern farmer in a manner which will entirely disabuso tho reader of an idea which was quito provulcut years ago which was that any man who had muscle aud enduranco could manago a farm. Th writer of tho interesting artielo refcrrod to demonstrates tbat to bo succcsstul in iNew England agriculture to-day a man must ros 8 ess a good sharo of that practical, Bound senso which is essential to sucoess in other avocations. In short, tho farmer ought to havo the best quality of brains. In treat ing of the causes which have mado farming in Now England forbidding to tho sons of farmers, tbe writer thinks tbat it is the iso lation of tha farm lifo, tho dcadlovcl, so to sneak, in which ho and his family move more than tho sovero toil, makes it forbidding. If somo means could bo devised to mako tho country farm life moro social, Col. Waring thinks that tho occupation would becomu quito nttraottvo as any other calling. To this end, ho recommends tho system which prevails in Europo where pcoplo cugaged in agriculture tivo in littlo villages and go out to till their acres. Ho admits that this sys tem has its disadvantages, and expresses doubts as to its success, nut would liko to seo it tried. Tho littlo village of a half dozen tanners bouses and tho help which thoy would need, would constitute a com munity where all tho advantages of a Now England village would bo available. The farmers could associato aud cconomizo by tho introduction of a system of co-operation by which ono could attend to tbo business o a half-dozen with littlo additional labor, Tho good result of this co-operation has al ready made itself manifest in tho chceso fac tories which havo sprung up bo rapidly in somo sections ot INew England. Tho villago life would afford that rocreation and social intercourse which tho isolation of tbooountry farm pi events. This, Uol.

Whilo a gravo was pre paring for her in a publio oemotcry, several men camo forward and objected to her bur ial becauso the placa would bo haunted, all theso idiots being imbued with tho fear of a post-mortem appcaranco, with tho usual blood-ourdling capers of tho disembodied spir it, and tho husband of tho unfortunato lady was compelled to bury her on a spot sot apart on bis lurm. J. ho circumstances lo camo generally kbown, and somo kind- hearted noighbors, who don't tako much stock in ghosts, resurrected tho body, and buried it in tho plaoo which sho had aolooted previous to shuttling off. Then tho supersti tioua people got violent. Ono of them who appeared to have dabbled in tho art of as trology, or mystical loro, mado a calculation to tbe effect that tbreo hundred years must elapse bctoro tbo "spook" could bo linally quieted, and so great was tho feeling in the matter that tho gentleman in ohargo of tho cemetery has bocn notified to removo tbo body inside of ten days, or abide tho conse quences.

A new species of cotton plant has been re cently discovorod in Egypt, which promisos to produco rcmarkablo results. Its valuo is in its remarkablo produotlvoncss. Eight acres of this cotton, which was cultivated by tho hoglish enginocr of ono of the vicoroy s great sugar plantations, produced 20,000 pounds of seed cotton. This gonilcman says that "on tho best lands ol tho American cot ton bolt tho yield would not bo less than fivo times tbo quantity grown from tho ordi nary seed." J lo describes it as growing to tho hight of ton foot, and having a straight vertieal main stem, with low branches and parscly leavod. Stvcnty balls, of .larger size than an ordinary cotton plant, is not a remarkablo number lor a einglo branch to bear. Ho planted tho stocks from whioh tho results mentioned were attained, half a yard apart. Tho season whioh suits it best Is a spring damp and warm, with showers or irrigation, that tho plant may rcceivo a good first growth. Then a summer with bright, hot days, and nights cooler, with moist ovap. orations and heavy dews. Tho Egyptian autumn, which is dry, permits tho fullest timo for tho maturity and gathering tho orop. Tbo viceroy baa usod every precau tion to prevent tho seeds from being exported, as ho desires to rotaio so valuablo a plant exclusively in his own dominion. Whero tbo new plant originated is not known. It is thought to havo first been brought down the Nilo from somo of tho cotton-producing oouotrics ol Alrioa, lying under tbo equator. The seed is worth in i-gypt tit ty cents per pouod, and will not bo sold at all for expor tation. Auiox, N. Y Nov. S9, 1976.

This cmphatlo endorsement of tho Henry F. Miller Pianos Has addod to their world-wide reputatioa. They are conceded to bo the finost Hanoi among Instruments of THE FIRST RANK. Tho Henry F, Miller rianos are used exclusively In the New England Conservatory ol Music, the largest music school In the world.
