Harris, Esq., Secretary of the Ohio Wool Growers' Association, and editor of the Ohio Farmer, published at Cleveland, sends the following letter to the Pittsburgh Commercial touching the prospects of the wool market this i season: Cleveland, O., June 5, 1866. To the Editor of the Commercial: The season of sheep shearing is now i upon us. and with it comes the ques tion of what shall be the price of wool. Having spent most of the past months at public shearings and meetings of the wool growers, this question has been constantly asked me,aud I have made such answer as, according to the best xjf my information, would subserve the truth. I think no persou can say con fidently just what wool will be worth a month hence, or what price farmers ought to insist upon, but as far as I have any opinion to express, I will give it, under the above qualifications. In tbe first place as to the causes which will aftect prices this season. The pending tariff measure agreed upon by the Joint Committee on the National Wool Growers' and National Manufac turers' Associations, can operate onlv prospectively. The bill has not, at this writing, been reported to Congress by the Committee of Ways and Means, so that the nearest possible time or its passage is too far in the future to have a very direct influence in determining the price which shall rule for our wools in June or July. But the prospective and collateral influences of this meas ure will be considerable. Let us calcu late. With an impost duty of ten cents per pound and ten per cent ad valorem on foreign wools?of which foreign wools it takes two pounds lobe equal to one of American wool?to the Amer ican wool grower twice ten cents per pound, and twice ten per cent, say twenty-lhree cents, add to this the cost of tbe foreign wool, say at fifteen cents per pound, equals thirty cents, making in all fifiy-tiiree cents, besides ex change, storage, Ac., and the American wool grower will have his own market at au average of some sixty cents per pouud. Even under the present delu sive tarifT. it is stated in the last report of the Boston Board of Trade, by one of the best informed wool dealers in that city that even at a cost of twentj' four cents per pound, the importation of Mestiza wools the past season hr.d not been reuumerative; and this while American wool is q"uted at fifty and tifty-tive cents. If this calculation is correct, I think the American wool grower lias abundant reason to bo satis lied with the prospective condition of! the wool market. Another and more immediate cause affectiug the price of wool in I860, is the fact that the eastern wool houses are unusually bare, not only of foreign, but or entire and desirable lots of do mestic wool. The operations of munu laaturers within the last few weeks have cleared the eastern wool houses to au extenl below that of any other time, at this season, within the last tive years. Meanwhile the machinery of the wool en mills has increased fully fifty per cent, requiring a supplv of one-third inoro than all the wool raised in the United States, to keep it in even mod erate operation. These two main facts?viz: the un profitableness of importation, and the necessity lor domestic wool, fix the status of the market at its present open ing. The wool buyers are already in the field with the express determination to take the new clipata rangeol'iroiH forty live to fifty cents. Formerly it was the custom, just before sending out orders to purchase wool in thespringto get up a sham sale iu Boston or New York, and send out a false report of prices; but as this practice can no longer de ceive intelligent men. the speculators have resorted to a system of decrying the condition of our wools, and for this purpose have held meetings in Michi gan and Ohio, adopting rules both im practicable and unjust, and putting forth declarations concerning the prac tices of wool growers whoso impudence is only equalled by their lalsehood. But tbe rarniershave wool tosol<, and these men will come to buy it. Every farmer will decide for himself how he will dispose of his wool and the price at which he will hold it. Itisalwuj's most satisfactory to the farmer to dispose of his stuff at home for cash in hand, and when a satisfactory offer of this kind is made, I should say take it. But let no farmer be deo-MVed by specious argu ments, as if the bottom was about to fall out of the market. There cau be no prediction iu trade at this time more certaiu of fulfilment than that wool must advance from present quotations, aud although the published rates are from 45 to 50 cents, I know of considera ble purci ases already made in Ohio at from 55 to 60 cents, and I know of no good reason why all the better class of good conditioned Ohio wool should not command the outside figure within the next two months. Believing this, as I do, from a canvass of the whole tie'd of production and consumption. I send forth this state ment to the public lor the consideration of such wool growers as are constantly inquiring of me, "What are the pros pects of the wool trade this seasou?*' H. D.

A writer in a St. Louis paper i? ?rB" ing tho iinportnnce of deep cu['"?? the soil ns n means of preventing the diseases which appear oni the grape. In the preparation of soils for permanent vineyards, too much stress cannot be placed upon the importance or drain ,,uo and deep stirring ot the soil. It costs heavily to do this; and in son e places it is Impracticable; but, Sn the end it is economical to do so. Not alone are diseases of the vino and fruit pre vented bv such culture, but the causes or diseases or plants and grams a re re moved by such management of the S?A H A o. B. Worthen of Hancock county, Illinois, sent samples ..r wine of their tirst vintage to .the American Institute Farmers* Club, which were highly commended by good judges. The following Is their mode ot ""Di'Sawares wore picked September 14- eatawlias October 12; sorted and im perfect berries removed, ground in a wooden lluled mill, the Catawbas being pressed immediately, and Delaware* alter remaining eighteen hours. Iho vat of the wine-pleas is the follower being moved by a 3y& inch wrought iron screw, 5 feet long. "KlftV gallons or the must was put in a wixlv-tive gallon cask, and a syphon inserted, one end lilting the bung air tight, and the other placed in a vessel of water, the thermometer in tho cellar Indicating G5 d. g. Fan. The must com menced fermentation in about _fori\ eight hours alter being placed in the cask. When the gas ceased to bubble up through the water, the cask w as tilled from another one, and the bung placed lightly over the hole for u week, when it was driven in tight. "Tlie wine cellar or vault is built in the aide of a lull, and Is sixty feet long and eighteen feel wide in Iho clear, and eleven aud a half reel high lu the cen tre of the arch; iho walls are ot liiuo slone, two leet thick, and arched o\er with the same initeriul; side w ills are carried up to the lop of the arch, und the space between tilled with eartli. The cellar has a limestone floor, plas tered with cement, making it rat-prool and water-proof. A good well of water is in ".he cellar, and a large cistern out side, eight feet in diameter and fourteen feel high." Dr Hull, of Alton, stated at a meet ing of the Alton Horticultural Society, MaV 3, that full one-third of the fruit buds on his grapevines had been de stroyed by the Chatybra or Steel lllue Beetle. Mr. S. Wilson sent a statement re cently to the Merriuiac Horticultural , Society that he had found a ' the grape rot. It is: Spriuk?4r^i ,lu t I over the vine. Dr. Warder stated that I Mottier of Cincinnati had found limeot j more service than either ashes or sul phur. M. Bracbes thinks the rot de pends upon minute nocturnal insects, and asserts that the rot is not found il the average night temperature falls be low SO3; even if the rot is in progress, it stops when the rot falls below0. Dr. Beale thought this fact might account for the rot being unknowu in Califor nia, where the night* are uniformly cool. Talking about a sample of Concord wine on exhibition recently. Dr. Hull, of Alton, is reported to have said that he considered it no better than vine gar; and that if we make wine from so | poor a grape it must be augured. J. A. Ltarr said he had procured a must scale, thus intending to bring wines to the same standard. Me should use sugar when necessary; but conform to the standard. TRICKING IN MGTTO.M. A. J. Murray, Veterinary Surgeon, """Currency has been given to the statement in the American press, that an Italian savant has discovered tri chinae in mulion, and that he found them especially abundant in the 1U1>&& of sheep. This statement is calculated to produce alarm, and to excite ( nicions as to the soundness of mutton, which it does not deserve. The Italian savant was mistaken as to the nature of the parasites in the cheeps lungs They were not trichina?, but are small worms scientifically termed the Slreu qi/lus filaria, and which produce a dis ease popularly known in Britain as the "husk." Their ova will not develop in human beings, so that their presence in sheep is not dangerous to uiau. I have dissected tho lungsola greatmany sheep or dilterent breeds in England, and have found the lungs ot three.out ofevery four sheep more or less affected witt them. They do not apparently injure the animal's health, unless they are present in very large numbers. I have not yet ascertained whether they are present in American sheep or not, though they have been found by scien litio men in the sheep of most European countries." PRESEBVINO ORAIN. The following is the report of a com mittee "on preserving grain in raritied air1' to tlie French Academy, and is I worthy the consideration ot grain deal ers. "the apparatus made for carrying out the process consists of one or more sheet-iron cylinders, each provided Willi a man-hole on the top lor the in troduction or the grain, and a hopper below through which il can bo discharg ed. A partial vacuum having been made wilbin the cylinder, by means ol an air pump, it was founJ that this could be maintained during six months or more. All the insects which attack grain, and particularly the weevil, were . quickly destroyed by the raritied air of ine cylinder. The grain was perfectly well preserved during the bix months devilled to ihe experiments of the com mil tee. HOW TO KEEP EGOS. Mr. G. Kenyedy Genelin, in his work entitled "JViuliry breeding in a Com mercial Point of View," gives the fol lowing directions for the preservation ol eirgs: "Now ibe most effective, sim ple,and economical plan ?or truly pre serving eggs, or reodering^ them^t^or j hatching purposes, is to use the patent stoppered glass jars with vulcanized India rubber Joints, and proceed thus ?Immediately alter daily collecting the eggs, put the jar in hoi water, and when thoroughly warm so as to rarify the air, place the eggs in the jar the pointed end upper-most, and pack and line with paper shavingsorcocoa Bbres to prevent iheir breaking; then close the jar before taking it outorthe waier, and It will bo found that the eggs pre served by this method will be ht for hatching twelve months after, "od that those intended for the breakfast table will be as fresh as on the day when In id " Prof. Smith, of Columbia College, said Ibut the common way of preservi ng ecus in the North <>r .Europe, aud which an pea red to be ntoro effectual than liny other in ide be bad ever seen was this. The eggs are placed in a barrel, keg, earthen jar, or .any other suitable vessel, and then melted tallow, only |?st warm enough to flow, Is poured in, filling the >ot.Br" slices, and thus hermetically sealing the'onus from the air, which appears to I be alTthat is necessary for their perfect preservation. When wanted for use, ibey are easily obtained by warming I the open end of the vessel to soften the ' tailow.

Atmonpberlc Treatment of Diseaie* ? Our medical friends who are gen erally a little skeptical as to new dis coveries. especially those which are heralded by great pretensions and puf fery, are destined, we think, to be most agreeably surprised at the wonderful results o! the application, on a gigantic scale, of a method of treatment with which all well-educated physicians have for many years been familiar. >\e mean nothing more nor less than dry cupping, by exhaustion of atmos pheric pressure. This simple agency, which has here tofore been so very efficient in relieving local pain and luilamation, has recently been applied on a scale QftnagnitudeauF ncent to embrace any part of the hu man body, one or more limbs, or even the whole person. The gentlemen who huve constructed the necessary ap paratus and made the experimental application to patieuin are themselves physicians engaged in practice, nnd appear to be gentlemen of intelligence and veracity, whose statement* are fully co 11 tinned by all that we have seen, and who tuke pleasure in showing their newly-invented apparatus and its application. Although we should reasonably ex pect from this more efficient and ex tensive application of ? well-tested principle many valuable results, we were not prepsired for the wonderful power over disease and marked struc tures which the new apparatus dis plays. Judging from experience, we suppos ed thut would be more efficicently re lieved, inflammation controlled, "and states of torpor or feeble vitality aroused by the now apparatus, but, in practice, its power is not limited to such etTects. It appears to bo a general renovator of life, l?y taking off a portion of the fif teen pounds of atmospheric pressure which rest upon every square inch of the body, and thus enabliug tho blood to circulate with leas of friction and obstruction. When tho patient is put into the pumping chamber, from which the air is partially extracted, a glowing circu lation is produced, commonly produc ing perspiration, and such a renovating impression on the constitution as to cure most cases of ague and fever. Rheumatism yields with great facilitv; paralysis, neuralgia, auda host of com plaints, for which no one ever expected h mechanical treatment to accomplish much, are so readily benefited or cured as to force tho conclusion that tho re sults are attained by renovating the eirculation, and giving to every nerve, capillary and fibre, its duo supply of arterial blood. There is really nothing more wonder ful than this in the history of medical improvements; and we should not be surprised if this mechanical or atmos pheric treatment of disease should rank, in the history of the times with the discovery of the application of ether, chlorotorm, and tho nitrous oxyde gut*'. Indeed, it promises far more valuabio results, as it accomplishes some things which have been heretofore beyond the power of art. We would refer merely to one case wnich was promptly cured in our city by Drs. Limerick and Starkey, who have the apparatus at their office, on Jelferson, just above Third street. This apparatus was gotten up by Drs. Had ueld. Limerick and Starkey, the latter of whom are in our city, the former in Cincinnati. We refer to the case of Mrs. A. Drake the celebrated queen of tragedy in America, who is enthusiastic in praise or an agency by which she has been so greatly relieved. In consequence of a fall, some years since, she has been suf fering severely with pain and lame ness, which bid fair to last through her life. To use her own language, "for four years," says she, "I have not known what it was to be free of pain in my knee for one hour. It was like a perpetual toothache. Frequently it has confined me to my bed for weeks at a time, with a total loss of sleep for sev eral days and nights in succession. And when I have been able to walk, in the better conditions of this lameness, it was with difficulty thatl could walk even by dragging the lame limb after tne other; and, after sitting for a while, to rise upon my feet was perfect torture, causing the cold perspiration to run down my face and my teeth to chatter. 1 have consulted the most eminent phy sicians, or different schools, of New . ?' ..V^adelphia, Cincinnati and Louisville, but without benefit." lu addition to this lameness and pain there was a kind of tumor upon the inner portion of the knee, of about the size ol a hen's egg. a lew days since the apparatus of Drs. Limerick and nfHrJit;^,WU3 "PPlied to the limb, and after three applications on different days the pain and lameness have en tirely disappeared, and, what is most marvelous, the tumor has entirely dis appeared also! We are not surprised at the relief of ,?.P"r!i y "if ?UI'P'?K operation so powerfully applied; similar things have been done by a much less efficient ap paratus, but we are astonished at the """or by so simpleand speedy a process. And tho pro ession T3 ?'kL"s ''? community, will be as tonished to learn that this process Is as signally successful in edematous and engorged conditions of parts as in the opposite cases of anemia and atrophy V lewetl as a triumph of practical science for the benefit of humanity we uro most struck with its practical re sults in cases of paralysis, in which it serves to restore nervous power when it'Would o herwfse be beyoud the reach of the healing art. Il the results al ready realized by Dre. L. and a. "re confirmed by a wider experience, there will be few cases or chronic disease to which their Invention will not be ben ehcial. It is certainly worthy of a trial by invalidfe; and we would respectfully suggest that members of the medical profession should give it their attention and publish a sketch of its practical value in medical journals, which would bring it before the medical profession and men or science. Drs. Limerick and Starkey are not mere practitioners or ibis mechanical process, b?it treat their patients by medicine also. This invention and application are new here, but the principles involved are old and familiar. It was recom mended in Paris by high authority some fifteen or twenty years since, but did uot come Into much use, possibly on account of the expensi veness of the apparatus. It was warmlv recom mended about that time by Ijr. Breck ler. of ltaitimore, and 1'rof. Buchanan at Cincinnati. Dr. Buckler published' some remarkable illustrations of Its power?among others, remarkable cases or intermittent fever. The re sults attained by Dr. Buckler, almost f ? ?.u?r "PPa?'a?. authorize ns to expect the most brilliant achievements from the apparatus used by Dr#. Lim erick and blorkey.
