AGRICULTURAL MEETING OP THE STATE AGRI CULTURAL SOCIETY. FARMER'S CLUB. We take the following from the pro ceedings of the last meeting of the Farmer's Club of the State Agricutural Society : The meeting was culled to order by Hon. L. D. Bailey, President, and F. G. Adams acted as Secretary. The President briefly reviewed the proceedings of the meetings that had been held during the winter, and con gratulated the Society upon the sub stantial and gratifying results achieved. At the commencement of the meetings the Society had but a single Life Mcm per. Now it numbers upon its roll upwards of one hundred life members, embracing a large share of the intelli gent, enterprising and public-spirited men of the State. It has received an appropriation of 1,000 from the State Treasury in furtherance of its objects, and had elicited facts which he deemed of the greatest importance in developing the resources and promoting the pros perity of the State. They have shown conclusively in his judgment that Kansas to-day presents greater attractions to men of small means but willing hands, who are seeking for homes in the Far West, where they can rear and educate their children to a life of honest indus try and independence, than any other State in the Union. It had been shown that the soil and climate of Kansas was admirably adapted to the growth of the great staples, hemp, tobacco, flax and wine, while cotton, if not permanently profitable, can be raised with immense profit so long as the present high price shall continue, lie thought that here, where millions of acres of land were for sale, at from one to three dollars per acre, much of it more or less improved, when it is shown that one farmer ( Mr. Pewett, of Anderson county) has actu ally raised $400 woith of tobacco on one acre of such land, without manure of any kind, during the past year. While another (Mr. Lattin, of Leaven worth )had, on less than an acre, raised $400 worth of grapes. And still an other, (Mr. Farnsworth, of Topeka) has realized a net profit of 33 per acre upon twenty acres of hemp. They had good reasons to be satisfied with the results, and trusted he might be privi liged to attend another series of meet ings next winter, with results equally satisfactory. But there was one branch of the farmer's business more important than all else at the present time, and that was stock raising in its various branches, and if the attention bestowed upon other topics should tend in any considerable degree to withdraw the at tention of farmers from the paramount importance of their flocks and herds, he feared they would not have done the State much service. He proposed, therefore, that the evening be devoted chiefly to the consideration of stock husbandry, regretting that Gen. Colla morc, who had been invited by a vote of the Society to address them on the sub ject of wool growing, had been unable by reason of sickness in his family to be present. By way of opening the dis cussion, the President stated that he had had a conversation with lion. W. Spriggs State Treasurer, who was largely en gaged in farming in Anderson Co., and Mr. Spriggs had furnished an estimate of the profit from raising 100 steer calves, till they were fat for market, as follows ; viz : 100 steer calves, bought in the fall before feeding time, at 3 per head, $300.00 Cost of keeping 1st vear, $2 per head, $200.00 Cost of keeping 2nd vear, 2.50 per head, 250.00 Cost of keeping 3d year. 2.50 per head, ' 250.00 Whole cost in fall, after 3 years old, ' 1000.00 Worth 25 per head 2,500.00 Profits, 1.500.00 The President said he presented the estimate for discussion and criticism, at the hands of the practical farmers pres ent. The President then presented an esti -mate on what the progeny of one cow would amount to in ten years, supposing her to have a heifer calf each year, and that each heifer would commence bear ing at two years of age. The number amounted to 144 at the end of 10 years and at the end of twenty years to 20, 736 twenty thousand seven hun dred and thirty-six). He thought no person need hesitate about going into the stock business for want of cap ital. Start with one cow, and get more as fast as possible. He stated on the authority of Treasurer Sprigg, that Mr. John Joucher, of Mt. Gilead, Ander son county, came into Kansas in the spring of 1857, and brought one cow, and had last fall on his farm thirty-six head of cattle from that one cow. IITNE'S MEDICINES For Sale by hall.

A WEEKLY BEFUFLICAN BEWSPAOTt, DEVOTED TO TUS INTXSKSTS OF WESTERN KANSAS Volume II. The success which has attended us daring the past year, a? shown by our increased cir culation, in our securing so extensive an adver tising patronage, anil by the high enccraiutai which haT teen received from tho press and people of the State for our bold and indepen dent course, ia defence of the Right, have satisfied the Publishers that the Umojc is a fixed and permanent institution of Western Kansas. While thaukiug our many patrons for the bountiful support which they have giren U9j c and for the encouragement received bv the many cotiiplimests bestowed, we would ask a continuance of their help in making the Umos a reflex of the prosperity and advancement which is sure to attend the course of Western Kansas. Strictly identified with the interests of Western Knnsas, and well knowing its vast resource?, which are only awaiting the magic hand of the capitalist and laborer to he fully developed, and added to the growing wealth of the country, we shall spare no pains or energy to bring before the masses of the East the great advantage of our country as a place of settlement for the home-seeking immigrant Everything tending to induce capital to flow hitherward for tho development of our exten sive Coal Fields and rich Salt Springs will receive that particular attention which it deserves. In politics, wc shall pursue that course which we believe justified by principles of Right and Justice, and which tends to Human Progress, Universal Liberty, and the free pursuit of Happiness by all mankind. The importance of having a full and com plete local department we would not under estimnte, and we are again impelled to ask our friends to aid us in this matter give us information of any thing transpiring in your neighborhood. We desire the Umos to be a perfect history of this locality. As we are unable to reduce tho price of our piper, and live by it, at the same time making it a useful institution, we have concluded, in view of the mighty interests involved in tho present struggle, to so arrange our terms a? to .jive our friends an opportunity of extending ur circulation in their localities: One year 52 numbers -"Six months 2C numbers -Ten copies, one y.ar, - - '$2 00 1 00 - 15 0Q Ve would appexl to our friends to aid m in putting the Umos in the bauds of every mn n Webtcrn Kanas.
