AMKKICAX <* KAI'E CULTUKK.
The Western Kailroad Kecord contains :»11
extended statistical article on the American
grape culture, and from the facts it has path
ered, expresses the opinion that while the
vine remains as it now is in the region of
Cincinnati, unaffected by any increase • t
insect*, parasites, or other causes «>{ Might,
the grape may here he cultivate 1 at a large
profit, even when thewineis reduced tooOct
per gallon. But, such is the demand f< r pure
Catawba Wine, and such is the cmeump
tion of wine in the country, that it is sale to
aay, that in full thirty years to come, w ii e
cannot ho reduced t*» 5ti cent* a gallon.— In
ail that time, the good cultivator* must real
ize heavy prosit*. The Kecord thinks, that
there must he five millions ofacic* planted in
vines, before the pi ices can be reduced to a
minimum in the United State*! This fact i »
enough to insure cultivator* against any haz
ard of an overstocked market. There will
probably he fMMigallons of C»itaw ba won*
raised in the Ohio Valley, in 1S55; hut this •*
nothing to the demand. If it weie donb ed
(which cannot he,) every year for live scars

EXTKA0KD1XAKV ACCIDENT.
We find in the English papers an account
of the bursting of a railroad engine, which
had just arrived at Gloucester with a train.
The explosion was terriiio. One large piece
svas carried a distance of a quarter » fa mile
over streets and houses, while a massive in n
ring, about a foot in diameter, was carried a
distance of about 250 yards, and striking the
corner of the new market Inn, drove a hole
completely through the wall and destroyed
numerous articles of furniture in the room,
some of the bricks being projected fifty yard*
up a narrow lane. The wood work of tin*
engine was splintered into a tbou*uud hit*.
