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
nished free to all subscribers who havo
for tho Farmer in advanco until tbo
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.
To the Subscribers of the Vermont
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
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
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
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. Uos

Prof. Riley of the entomological commis

the eggs havo not all hatched as yet, but tho

Thero wero thrco deaths under ono urn
brella at Newburg, N. C, on the last Sunday
evening in April. At tho closo of tho ser
vice at tbo colored JJcthel church a thunder
storm passed over tho town, and two young
girls took rctugo under a colored brother t
umbrella, which had a steel handle There
was a vivid flash, and in an instant thero
were three lifeless bodies prostrato on tho
sidewalk. Tho cover of tho umbrella was
partly burned.
A curious phenomenon occurred at Aspin
wal on tho Isthmas lately. The beach at
that point was found ono morning covered
for a mile or more, with a deposit of a deep
vivid-indigo-bluo something resembling
broad ribbon stretched along tho limits of
high tido. A closo examination rovealed the
fact that this blue deposit consisted of mil
lions ot a peculiar, llat, shapeless sort ot jel
ly-fish, smaller than tho hand, rounded in
contour, with a slightly raised ridgo running
what would seem to bo foro and aft over tie
back. Tho next day all tho bright color
had laded out, and tbe gelatinous deposit
although giving out a strong, unpleasant odor,
dried up and soon disappeared.
Eastern Panning.
Col. 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. Waring boliovcs,
would removo the ono feature of farm life
which, moro than any other, seems to mako
it repulsive to tho young man and young

was compelled to bury her on a spot sot

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
