. . Jt is a. giqgular fact, that with all
the pmctioil progressive ingenuity to
which" as a nation we arc justlj en?
titled,. w are behind old IQajpt in
availing ourselves of the very imnor
taat advantagoi of steam ploughing
In the cnlftvation of large tracts of
Und .steam . ploughing is undoubtedly
more efficient, as well a a economical,
than the present liyFteih, Our Eng
lish. . cousins, fully appreciate this.
There are in England several different
establishments employing over twelve
hundred men each i mauufacture
'ttam pioughg.' The plan found to
work best in Great Brittain, ia to have
organiied companies who hire out
their steam machines and do the work
by contract, and it is said that more
than five hundred Btearn ploughs are
thus held for hire. The success of the
experiment is proved by its working
on a tract of five hundred acres near
Loudon. So poor was this land deems
ed that it would not bring a rent of
three dollars per acre, but after being
ploughed by steam it brought a clear
profit of $18,000 on grain crops;
SooMaod also finds do difficulty in
making steam ploughing "pay " In
Qermaay the same mechanical force
meets with general approval, while
further in the Hast the Pacha of Etrypt
emtlovs four hundred of these I
Id those countries the lands are old
and thoroughly freed from all obstruc
tions, which may aecount for the more
extensive use of steam ploughs. 1 ocn
again, the land being held in immense
estates, the proprieters are able to
purchase and use then with great
economy, when their expeDstvenes
would preclude sat-II laod-iowners
from the pofsibjlUy of availing them
selves of their advantages.
But our western prairies are natu
rally level and free from obttructionr,
and there seems to be- no existing rea.
son for their not being ploughed by
steam other than the reason which the
Turk ot Asia Minor and the Greases
of Mexico, to day, to use a wooden
plough lustead of an iron one to wit,
thriftless ignorance. The use of the
steam plough is no longer an expe
riment, as the above Er glish statistics
prove. It but remains, therefore, for
our western farmers to club together
and purchase them, usiug theii first
for themselves, and than doing their
neighbors', ploughing bf contract,
ro&kinz monev by the operation. If
the members of a new colony, for in
stance, would combino aud purchase
oue of these ploughs, it will do more
ploughing in a single day, tl an all
the men together, leaving the labor
ers free to perfect ail the other de
tails necessary to 'establishing them
selves; or private individuals might
purchase them and plough by contract

Whereupon Beau called his servant
