A gricultural M achikbhy .—Th«
farm urn of our K;wUrfi State», says
the New York Evading Vont, com
fxMdcl to till rocky arid un*v«ti lands,
and used to »mall holding«, do not
know, by experience, all of the chan
gea which improved mn^hinery has
wrought in agricultural operation« ou
the great Western prairie*. Three
machines do the labor of men to such
a degree that the farmerV h<javi«wt
toil» are Hghtoned, and one roan is
enabled to acbiove, with ease, tb»
work of half a dozeo.
We saw, recently, » corn field of
one hundred and sixty acre», on the
Grand prairie, in the plowing, plant
ing, and cultivation of which no man
walked a step. A rotary spader,
drawn by four horse«, and driven by a
man upon the box, plowed the field
to a uniform depth of eight inches,
and gave such thorough tilth that it
was not necessary to use a barrow at
all, A corn planter, drawn by two
horses, and driven by a mau upon the
box, next planted the seed. A culti
vator draw» by two mules, one walk,
ing on each side of the knoe-bigh corn,
and driven by a man upon the box,
completed the culture of a row at a
single operation ; and in the tool-bouse
lay another machine, also to be drawn
by horses, which will cut down the
corn wht;n it is ripe and lay it in reg
ular rows, to be finally gathered by
hand. But it is expected tbat by
next year this machine will be so im
proved as to gather up the corn also.
When it is remembe red that the
farmer who follows a common plow or
cultivator during a long summer's day,
performs a march of from ten to four
teen miles, it will be seen what h
boon is the machinery which relieve«
him from this toil. And when we re
member how scarce were men during
the last four years in the West, we
-.hall see that but for such labor-saving
implements our vast crops of cereals
could neither have been planted nor
The farm of which the corn field we
»puait of was a part, has seven hundred
acres in a single field of timothy. Of
what use would this be if it had to be
«Ut by hand ? But half a dozen har
vesting machine« sufficed to cut it all,
in good time, and will do, without
groaning, the work of half s regimtnt
of men ; patent horse-rake* gather it
tip ; and two hay presses upon the
place compress it into bales fit for
shipping. »Seventeen and a half miles
of board fence inclose a little more
than half of this farm, which has, as
it# furniture, comfortable shed* for ten
thousand sheep, a corn crib, rat-proof,
holding fifteen thousand bushels of
com, and extensive stabling for hor
What maohinery has done for the
West it will do tor the tSoutb. now
v,hat frosi labor is substituted for slaves.
There is no reason why the cotton
and sugar-fields of the South should
not be tilled by machinery These
fields, are m Louisiana, Mississippi,
and indeed in almost the whole of the
cotton and sugar regiou, level and de
void of rock*, aod these are the only
conditions necessary to the successful
use of the most valuable farm ma
chinery. The slaves, ignorant, and
<-arelesa because they had no mtereBt
in the work, used only the rudest and
clumsiest tools; but in the handsofin
telligent freedman, the rotary spader,
or the steam plow , or cultivator, can
be used as well as the immense
level bottom lands of Lonisiana, where
augar is grown, as on the prairie* for
corn and wheat.
Yankee ingenuity, too, will pres
ently «et itself to work to devise new
implement* for the more economical
and rapid prosecution of such labor
as cotton-picking and cane cutting.
The next ten years will witness an im
mense revolution in the method of
cultivating the great staples of the
South ; and the fruits of tbut change
will be a greatly increased produc
tion of cotton and sugar by the help
of free labor, and—what the use of
machinery brings with it—such in
creased rewards for intelligent labor
m will prove, even to the most igno
rant of the Southern population, the
importance of school« and the pecu
niary value of education.
gfcg* John S, Wallace, a merchant
of Chicago, wftf arrested recently
for using revonne stamps two or
three times over on his warehouse
receipts. His manner of doing it
was to put a stamp on a receipt
and after it had been passed tear
it off and use it again on auother
receipt. Numbef» of receipts wore
louud in his desk with the stamps
off, and the stampR in an envelope.
In this way be confesses to have
saved about $35, which will prob
ably cost-him about 835,000 the
penalty for each offence being

History and llmription of the Plagne
The report that the plague is
spreading westward, and may yet
visit this continent, will render of
interest the following article from
the OornhiU Magazine:
The black death, like many oth
er plagues of its class, can be traced
far back into the remote East ; and
tbqre is no doubt but that it was
the same disease which ravaged
China and Tartary i*d 1338, fifteen
years before it arrived on the shores
of Europe. There had been a great
famine in China, preceded by earth
rjuakes, which alone destroyed 400,
000 persons, and in the following
year, no fewer than 5,000,000 died
there of this plague from the re
mote East, it made its way into Eu
rope some years later, for pestil
ence often travels slowly, accom
panying the migrations of men,
and being carried about in their
clothing and merchandise. It did
not arrive in Europe until 1347, fif
teen years after the outbreak in
China "From China," says Hecker,
"the routes of the caravans lay to
the north of the Caspian Sea,
through Central Asia, to Tauris.—
Here ships were ready to take the
produce of the East to Constanti
nople, the capital of commerce and
the roodium of communication be
tween Asia, Europe and Africa."—
Contagion made its way along these
channel», and Constantinople, and
the seaports of A ^ia Minor, were
the foci whence the disease was
cairied to nvery country of Europe.
Making its way acrosw the Euro
pean Continent, it committed its
greatest ravages, perhaps, in Eng
land ; in Italy, raging terribly at
Florence where it was observed and
described by the poet Boccacio.
Passing along tho shores of the
Meditteranean it invaded France by
way of Avignon, spreading thence
to England on the one hand, and to
Germany on the other ; whence,
like the cholera ot the present day,
it doubled back two years luster to
Russia, and so back to the cast.—•
The Black Death, so called from the
rapid putrefaction of the bodies of
the victims, was of the same nature
as (he Oriental Plagia», viz : A
putrid typhus, only of greater ma
lignity. The boils and buboes of
the later disease were found on the
former whenever the patient lived
long enough to permit their »level
opmenf. Tim inhabitants of Europe
at that time, have been computed
at one hundred and five millions, a
high estimate. Of these, twenty
fivn tnillioiis, or one fourth of the
whole, perished. In Kngland it
was still more fatal, owing, prob
ably, to the rnder habits of the peo
ple. During the term of one year,
from August, 1348, to August, 1349,
three-fourths of tin; whole popula
tion perished Indeed, if we are to
credit the annaliatH of that period,
not more than one tenth escaped.—
Many succumbed in a few hours,
like Sennacherib's host ; none en
dured for three days
In France, numbers died on the
Spot where they were first smitten,
as if struck by lightning. This ter
rible scourge, having Bwept over
t,h«' known world, committing such
de«»ruction of life, arid leaving be
hind it such misery and poverty as
the world never saw before nor
since, at length died out. It spared
neither age, eex, nor condition ; the
rich and the poor alike succumbed.
There died in Venice the aristo
cratic. no less than 100,000; in
Paris the gay, 50,000 ; and in Lon
don the wealthy. 100,000 ; while in
busy, rich, industrious Norwich,
there died the almost incredible
number of 50,000 persons—nearly
the whole, one would suppose, of
its inhabitants ! At Avignon, the
deaths occurred with such fearful
rapidity as wholly to baffle the at
tempts of the living to inter their
friends and rolatives ; and the Pope
was obliged to consecrate the
Rhone to allow of tho dead bodies
finding a hallowed restinjç-place
upon its bosom, until it finally com
mitted them to the great deep
