Mr. Editor : Ilaving becn intcres'cd for soveral years in tlie wool growing businoss, I have cngerly perused evcry communication on tlie suhjcct which has come undcr my observa tion. It is well known that sheep, in our norlhern cliniaie. rcquire jjrcat caro and at tontion, espcciallv in tho winter season. The hcalth of tlie flock during tho winter, however, depends vcry much uj on the manncr in miiich it is fed through tlie summer and fa.II. Sheep, that havc been wull fcd during summer and come to the barn in good flcsli, are siddom dis cased in tlie winter. No farmer siiould kccp more stock, of unv kind, tha:i hc can kecp uoll. It is weli known that halfblood merino are moro robust and les-s subjoct to diseaso, and of course necd much Iess carc lliah full blood, or Saxony ; and un'ess a fair prcmiiim is paid for fiiie wool, it is lo Ir expcctrd that farmers will not bu disposcd tu improve ihoir bicud of bliecp. I have real tho corrrspondcnco hrtwcen Mr. L. A. Morril, of Lancing N. Y. and Mr Lawrcuce of Lowell, wiili no small degree of interest. It appoars from Mr. Laxvrcnce's staipmcnts tlint American, or more espccinlly New Eng. land wool, is by far the most filthy that cotncs to market, from any part of thc world, cven Botany Buy not cxcepled. I acknoiilcdaic that tliis f.ict is humiliatiii" to New England farmers. I. rcflects nit only unnn thir scneral cliarncter for industri', but also it indicates a decidedly unfavorablc staie of feeling, in regard to moral lionesly, and iu tecrity. I am willing to admit that sorao part of the censurc, which tlie stateineut of i.Jr. L. implies, should rcst upou thc farmers ; but I npprehcnd that the Manufhctiircr, indircctly at least. encourages the cvil which it would seem to be thc design of Jlr. L. to correct. Has the Manufacturer cncouragcd thc wool grower to put his wool in a suitable condition for markelT Has hc givcn information re spccting thc subject such as tho growcr ivould not bs able lo obtain from any otlier source ? Has he instructed his agents :o pay for woolin proportion to its qualityand condi. tion 1 Farmers wish to rcalize tlie greatesl possible amouut of profits from their Iabors, and if manufacturcrs pay nearly tho sanic for coarse filthv wool, as for fir.c well washod wool, can thcy expect-that farmers will make sacrifices mcrcly for thc reputation of growing the best wool and preparing it for market in thc bcst manner 1 I would ask, have agents paid any hifiher price for wool thoroughly -washed, tag ged, and sheared m eight or ten days after washing, and ticd up with suitable cord, than wool which is scntto maikot with almost no preparation ? I get no more per pound for my wool, prepared for market in the manner statcd above, than thosc who only soak their shcep, and thcn let them run twenty days huddled to. gether, in flocks from 2 to 800. and in addition put in all the tags. They boastingly say to nie, you are a fool to be so nicc about your wool, I got as much per pound for my wool as you do for yours. This being a truc statc mcnt of facts, is it strangc that the wool is so plenlifullv rnnnnr0rI7 If farmers Bet no pay for their labor, and ir by ncglcctmgto preparc their wool for market, they gain half a pound to a flecce, is it to be cxpcctcd that their wool will be put into the best condition 1 My sheep wore formerly very fine, but I could get no more for a "flecce. weighing 2 i pounds, per pound, than my neighbors, whose sheep yielded fleeces weigh ing 4 pounds. Consequently, I have bcen in duced to graduato down my breed of sheep in stead of improving it. I hsve statcd here whatl consider facts, and if theso are facts, have the manufacturers any rcason to complain Wlien sand and manurc will sell for 30 to 39 cts. per pound, is it not to be cxpectcd that yankees will sell it? Is it said that if farmers wou'd improvc their wool, the market price would be vuiscd ? I answcr that onc farmer has no povvcr over his neighbor in this respect; but the manufacturer has theability to improic the condition of wool that is carried to market, if he will makesome discrimination -when hc puichases, between fillhy and clcan, well washed wool- What I havc here itatcd re specting the price of wool. might bo said with rqual justncss rclativo to butter and chcese. Tho merchants give no adcquatc encournge ment for cxtra labor in making good butter and checsc. Werc we all able to carry our produceJo market it might be different. llut sittiated as we are, we try lo make the most oT our labor. P. P. D. We should be glad lo learn from the pur chasers of woo! in Vermont hovv far they are instructed and prepared to reward cxtra carc in thc wool-growcr, by an cxtra price. The piices given, we take it, are generally gradua ted on the average cleanlincss. Are agents of manufacturcrs authorizcd to give cxtra pay for exlra neatncss, or are their instructions all on thc othcr sidc ? ENGL1SI1 CORN LAWS. Urcat Dritain al the prcscnt momcnt isshn ken lo its centrc by tho strugglo more ficrco than any that has cccurtod sincc the passage of the reform bill. The Jliinisters havc an- nouuccd their intcntion lo fix tho duties on grain nt certain ratcs, which it is clear will ad niit of cxicnsivc importations, or in other words to abalibh the corn lawsystem ofthc kingHom. Thi has hrougUt out the whole of thc landed and fanning intercst in violent opposition ; as it is well un'Jerstood tho cxorbiiant prices uhich have prevailed for years, and on which thc present systcm of English farming is main ly based, could not hc maintaincd without tho protfclion of sush latvs. On the other hand, tlie inanjfacluring and commcrcial inlcrcsts are ratiging themsclvcs on thc sidc of Miuis tc s, and as the Queen is siid to favor them, it s probablo they will cventually succeed, al though prcscnt appcarances indicatc a pro Ionjicd strugglc. Tho questlons at issuc are very impo-tanl to this country. It is the monopoly of thc homo market that shuls out our whcat from England ; nnd the abulition or modification of tho corn laws woulu open an cxtensive marKct to us at oncc. It is the first limc in thc history of England that the aristocrncy or tho land holdcrs, havc found ihemsclves fairly brought into opposition with thj mass of laborers, nianufaclurcrs, and commcrcial mcn, and thc rcsult can hatdly be doubtful. The nocessitics of the govcrnment have led to this course, ns it is only two years since the present prcmier, Lord Molbonrne, dcclared a repeal of the corn laws impossible. Thc discussion hasopcncd the uliolo range of comtnercial rcstrictions and. frce trade policy, nnd promises, cven should it lead to the overthrow of the prcscnt ministry, a thing by no means improbablc, to lc.id to a better understanding and a more cor rect application of thosc important principVs. Cullivator. WOOL. The Troy Wht learns frnm the farmeri hat iheyare leceiving seven and cight rents more per pound for wnol than they received at this time lat year. Should Congrcss rnake the a nicndments uhich are expected by the people, iheic is cvery piobability that thtre wiil beastill farther rie in thc prices f ivool, until our far mer' shall .igain receive an ample reinuneration f t their labor. Forunles we are deceived, the m lntifaciurin imerests of this country are about to receive an iinpulse which will place them in a more pmspercus condition than ever. Boslon Dailrj .lif.

AVe have no doubt thc Boston cxhibitor of this ridiculnus foolery, will soon find it cxpodient to play his gamc in some olher place, where therc is a Icsi arnount of ger.eral intelligence than in the largest of the New England citics. PnoTECTiox. We occasionnlly meot with one of thosc hard-hcarted, stitT ncckcd, old fashionod aiisiocrats.who wish togct thtirsilk-s, their wines, Iheir broadcloths and luxuries from tho old world cven chcaper than they now do. Ciuch persons. wlio can alturd to rido in their English built carriagc?, imported frec of duty, who wear London madu hats. Insh linen, cambriok ruffles, and cockncy boots, all duty free, and sold here in Amcrica cheapcr than our mcchanics are willing to make them, can not for their lives undcrstand why the mcchan ics wish for a protcctive duty. Our grand- iamer useu to ten us wnen we were quite- a boy, that thc true American policy was to mannfccturc evcry thing we consnmcd. When we can do that, said he, we slnll be indepcn dent. To be sum it matters little 'with the rich, they can aflbrd to buy foreign luxuries but thc poor, if they wou'd thrive, must manu facture sufficient to buy all they consumc. Protect American induslry, and America is truly frce and indcpendent. Dcprcss Ameri can, and you ruin the great mass ofthc Ameri can people, the farmers and mechanics. We speak particularly ofthc farmers bccnuse they constitute the great intqrcsts of the country. The mechanics, manufacturers and nrtisans come next. When their intercsls arc protec ted, all oihcis will follow, for that of the mer chants depends altogether upon thc prosperity of tho producir.g classcs ; they arc mercly factors employed in exchanging the commodi ties or pfoductions of olhcrs. We apprehend it would bc f ir bclter for the people of this country if instead of having their farms and their raechanicarfaculties taxed, a heavy and suflicient tax were put upoii all foreign producttons to help support our gov crnment and give our working populationa chancc to live instead of obliginglhem to pay the taxes and permitting foreigners to fill our country to overflowing with thenr productions, at a less price than we can produco them.- Tax foreign productions then, say we, and let American industry bavo thS benefit of the taxation. - t . tant measures of thc Exlra Sesston passed the IIouso of Rcpresentativcs on Tuesday by tho strong vote of Yeis 134 to Nnys 93."
