The Wool Interest??ForthcomingClip
?-I'ruwpert of the Market.
S. D. 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
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
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
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?*'

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.

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

by the now apparatus, but, in practice,
its power is not limited to such etTects.

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 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.

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

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

at Cincinnati. Dr. Buckler published'
some remarkable illustrations of Its
power?among others, remarkable
