When Guenon's theory a determining
the T:ilue of milk cows by the growth cf
.'.air on their thighs clove and adjacent
to the bag, was nmt introduced, the- idea
was received ~ixu a good deal of skepti
cism: : pfi. io Lias wrought changes At a
latg ..invention by the Legislative Club
:.i the state of Xew York, one of the.
speakers gave the evidence in rcLticn to •
Guenon's theory:
" M Guenoa, a French writer, has
discovered certain indications which ho
ehiins to determine the talking qualities '
~ ofcovrs This locally ''escutcheons," being
the hair which grows upwards, (contrary
to the getieral rule,; on the udder, thighs
and hinder part of the body. It is easy t
"to distinguish the escutcheons by tliej
upward direction of the hair which form
them. T canuot go into detail here upon j
the system, hut would refer to the work
J t T f ( ' : j
of M. Gueuoii itself. But to show tha}
it is esteemed worthy of notice, 1 will al- j
l-.jde to the testimony of who have
given attention to it.
Mr. John Ha x ton, in a work publish- '
1 •
e.l in iSf/d, entitled, " How to dure u:
good milk cow," in rofercnea to the indi
k¥cion of a good milk cow, p. ITS, says :
" The writer ht}s examined many hun
dreds of dairy QUWS in Britain, and the .
conclusion arrived a', in regard to Mr.
% ' . i
Guenon's test of judging of the milking
properties of a cow, by the development
of the ecusspii,, is that, in a yery large
majority of gus£s, it is borne ojrt by facts."
d.u a London dairy, belonging to M r Biggs
hi Edgeware road, where about fourhuu-j
lived cows are kept, and where nine tenths
of them are above average milkers, the
development or upward growth of the
hair on the posterior part of the udder,
thighs and periumuni, was too remarkable
to he accounted tor by accidental causes.
As well might it he said that skin, and
wide quarters, were accidental, and by. 1
no reference r/> the milking properrias of
a cow. when a phenomenon png uts it
self over and over again, accompanied in
a majority of cases by certain results, w<•
may bo, certain that it is not accidental,
but natural; and while we may be una
ble to account for these results upon
Satisfactory grounds, it is neither philoso
phical or prudent, to deny or ignore the
connection between the oue and the other,
and thus forfeit the' advantages which
the fact itself is calculated to afford."
The late Mr. Phiuney, of Massachu
setts, a very careful and critical observer,
made examination of a large number of
milk cows, found in a majority of them
that were good milkers these develop
ments well marked. Ife couversed pith
a large number of intelligent gentleiugn
when he was abroad, ip 1851, in Great
Britain and France, and found but one
opinion as to the general character of the
animals which possessed these develop
ments ; and so far as \ye have learned the
views of gentlemen in this country, gho
have given attention to this subject, the
result has bequ the same.
"I think it may with safety beafijrmed,
that this 'one principle' is established—
that all things being alike, as regards
fhape, texture of skin, <fce., cows with
well-developed escutcheons, will, in ama-
jority of cases, bo found to be the best
milkers, and above an average; while on
the other hand,- thqso with very small
I
escutcheons, will be found tinder, or at
most, not above au average in their milk
ing properties.
"In calves, the escutcheons show the
shapes which they are aftarwards to i,s
muue. They are more contracted only
because the parts which they cover are
slightly developed. They arc easily per
ceived after birth, but the hair wlpeh
forms them is long, coarse and stiff. Af
ter this hair falls off, the escutcheons of
calves resemble those of co.ys, though of
less size. This will enable the farmer to
save such calves as will probably serve
him as good milkers.— Farmer and
Planter.
THE APPLE BORER.—Some affirm that
the borer never attacks a tree except at a
point where the bark ut least is already
dead; and that instead of the dead bark
and wood in the vicinity of its depreda
tions being the effect, it js in tact the
cause of the attack. Of course, after the
borer once obtains a lodgement in the tree
it spreads the mischief aqd hasteus the
decay of the tree. Those who adopt this
theory say that the borer generally attacks
the tree on the southwest side; and the
reason assigned for this is, that while the
tree is young, aud the branches few and
small, affording but little shade, the bark
is frequently killed in spots by the after
noon sun; aud as soon as there is the small
est dead spot to be found the borer is in
to it, and once there, he spreads disaster
#ll around him.
Assuming this theory to he true, the
remedy proposed n simple and obvious
First, branch the tree as low as practicable;
and secondly, in planting, lean it slightly
to the southwest. These two precautions
will afioffd every protection from the
scorching rays of a southwestern sun. —J.

"PI{ILAL>KJ,PH;A. .July 18. —ThqSu r j
preijie Four' this morning decided that 1
Willjam 11. M aim was legally elected hujt!

That tells the whole story. Wil|iam|
11. Maun was the 1 niou candidate for'
District Attorney in Philadelphia. The .
Certificate of election was given to his
Buchanan opponent, but Mr. .Mapa was
so well assured that he had a majority of
the legal votes, that be Contested the
election before the District Court, and
prqycd the polling of fraudulent votes |

I f ogr friend:, in Philadelphia will but a

VViimot will be the next. Governor of
Pennsylvania.
WHAT QTIIKRS TIJINIV OR I s AMI
TI(KMSEI,VKS. —The Newark Dady Mer
cury says thaf last fall Mr. Buchanan re
ceived 1550,500 votes, Fremont 1 17,117,
and Fillmore, counting fiis Cnion votes
laud the straight ticket, 82,227. Thus'
Pennsylvania proved itself nmeli sounder
on the question of freedom fljan New Jer
sey, although here Mr. Fremont receiv
ed 10Q0 more votes than Mr. Fillmore. —
lp,it Mr. M i!mot ha s now been nominated,
and it is estimated by his friends that he
can poll all the Vnion votes of last fall,
which were oyer 200,000, an>] gain a con
siderable portion of the straight, Fillmore
vote. Ji is believed that a large portion
of the vote for Mr Buchanan was fraudu
lent, brought out by the immense oxpen
diture of money raised for that State, qnd
that no such vote can be approximated
airain. The prospect of success grows ev
ery day better. It would certainly be a
triumph worth recording to chronicle the
election of David Wiluiot as Governor of
Pennsylvania. With Bissel! in Illinois,
Chase In Ohio, King in New York, Banks
in Massachusetts, and Wilmot in Penn
sylvania, the great States of the North
would present an array of talent and high
principles never before equalled in the
history of the countrv.
AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. —A friend
of ours, says the Philadelphia 2 ranscript,
has taken the trouble to analyze a tum
bler of XX a'e, and reports thaf he found
it composed of the following ingredients
Two parts putrid horse flesh, three parts
'pool water, one part malt, one half part
hops, aud the balance, two parts and a
half, he couid find no name for. The
discovery vras any thing but an agreeable
one to him, as he is an inordinate lover
of the nut-brown beverage with its snowy
foam. He thinks that during his life he 1
has drank the carcasses of about sis dead j
horses, aud enough stagnant water to sup-;
ply Faninount basin for three month.

Vyo never doubted the wbsdgm of the j
Free Stat? uiep not to yoje at the Bognfcj
election for delegates to form a pro-slave-.
TV Constitution for that Territory. A si-!
ylo glance at the provisions .of the act i
proyidinv fpv this election, was sufficient
to show that it was not intended to per
mit a fajr vote —that no matter how nu-|
morons the Free State uieu, it was not
possible for them to elect a single dele
irate under this act. Because the Bor-|
der Ruffians decided who should vote,J
aud who should count the votes; and
niep who would throw printing presses
into the river, and burn towns for the;
sake of establishing Slavery, would stufi
the ballot-box, and refuse to receive any
but pro-slavery votes. The census fyaud
aud the registry list of voters, vindicated
the \y is do ni of the Free State men, for
nearly one'ha// the counties were entire
ly ignored, not a delegate being accorded
to any one of 17 counties, and not one;
* ; • ' i i
quarter of the Free State men in the
otlicr half of thp Territory was put on the'
Registry list, apd yet in the face of all
thjs, tliQ Buchanan press of Pennsyhun ,
nia has the hardihood to whine at the re- J
fusal of the Free State men, who were on
the list, for refusing to vote. This |
proves what we have all the time assert,
ed—-that the Buchanan men of the Free
Spites, are the :;llies of the Border Ruf
fians in Kansas. If not, why should
V' •> ,
they fed such disappointment at the dc
fi-at of this fraudulent scheme to over
throw the Free State cause.
The refusal of the Free Sfafe men to
vote has exposed the weakness of the'
Border Ruffians, as It could liuye been
done in no other way, and already leading
Southern papers acknowledge the fact. —
lint see how the home organ of \\ illiain
F. Packer groans over this exposure of,
its alljos in Kansas. The following ie '
part of an article in the last Lycoming
Gazette.
"But. in giving place to a faint
that the Abolitionists in Kansas were
honest in their professions of a desire to
see it enter the luion with a constitution
prohibiting slavery, wc were most egregi
ously mistaken. True to their policy of
turmoil in preference tQ peace, they car
ried out their Topoka resolution, by the j
whole body of them refusing to vote. Jt
was their desire that the pro-sjavery men
should elect the delegatus, anij rharthope!
delegates should be men who would in
sert a clause in tiie constitution making
slavery a permanent institution, thereby j
securing for themselves and their abet
tors in the States a pretext for renewing
the. agitation of the past two years and,
it' possible, the disturbances alsjp, for they
know that, peace is death to the whole
fabric of Black Bepublicanism But (he
election has pnsseu, delegates have been
chosen without their votes, the convention
will assemble to discharge the dijty as
signed it, and. mark our word, there, will
be no slavery in Kansas after it becomes
a State. '1 here has sprung up a party;
within the territory wiio stand' between
tbe knaves of the north and the fools of
the south. That party has already made
its influence a thing to be felt, and when
the vote is taken by the people on the 1
final adoption of the constitution, and the
quest-ion''is put, "Slavery or no Slavery,' 1
as it is now probable it will be put, tlie
men composing it will be :{ the polls to
vote "Xq Slavery, - ' and thus settle the
question forever without the assistance of
those demagogue? who have refused to do
anything but light the battles their own
acts have helped bring aboqt."
It will be seen from this extract, that
the writer feels very bad about something.
That is clear enough. But that he gives
the true reason for his bile we doubt yery
much. TJie reason given for disappoint
ment i, that the Free State men did not
elect their sort of men to frame the Con
stitution. AVho believes that; in the face
of tlje record of the last Congress. The
whofe influence of the last and of tjie
present National Administration has jjeen
with the Border Ruffians and against the
Free State men.
So that the real reason for disappoint
ment on the part of William F. packer,
and his supporters, is the exposure of the
weakness of their allies in Kansas
The bogus election was a graud fizzle —
only about 1,600 out of 25,000 voting
residents of Kansas, took part iq the at
tempt to enslave the Free State mqn
This shows the utter and hopeless weak
ness of the moq on whom the Buchanan
party of the North have staked their all;
and therefore tho groans of its press.
"The fools of the South," sosneeringlv
referred to in the above, are the;neu who
elected Buchanan, and who now control
his administration as they did that of
Fierce. William F Packer and his sup
porters, could stand before these "fools
of the South'* just about as long as dry
grass would stand before a prairie lire.
It takes Free State meu, aud Republi
cans to do that job.

ST. Vm u, M. T., July 13, 1837.
The Convention to draft and report to
the people of Minnesota a Constitution
for their ratification or rejection, ptepar
atory to donning tlie mantle of State
sovereignty, which lirwt assembled in this
city to (jay, has developed such a series
of rare and racy incidents,
The Convention is composed of 102
members, of whom fW RJ- • Republicans
and t'j Democrats. All the Republicans
arc at their post, except three, while 11
Democrats are still absent, 'J'o balance
the delinquent Doughfaces, nine half
breeds and (1 hippo was have been sum
moned from J'oinbina, and have magic
ally made their appearance, armed each
with n certificate in English, undoubted*
ly tVr;ed for the occasion, which 02\fy
/bwr of them can read. Early on Satur
day it began to }ic pniufully apparent that
the jjnterrified could not succeed in mar
shalling their multiplied minority so as to
meet the exigency of "the second Mon
day in duly." They had spattered men
aces and execrations gratuitously wher
ever the Republican members congregat
ed; the forty-three Democrats had sworn
."in the name of all the gods at. once,"
that tl-ey would organize the Convention
over the heads of fifty-nine Republicans,
and that the nine bogus delegates from
Pembina, elected by an alien constituen
cy outside "the boundaries of the propos
ed tState," and hence in direct violation
of the Enabling Act, should take and re
tain their seats, or, in the expressive lan
guage of an Fx -Governor among thf.m —
"the Convention shall never organize!"
111-concealed whispers of and vi
olence havp tilled their camp with an ar-
ticulate hum for the hist two weeks, and the
general spirit that has seemed and still
seems to inspire them has been summed up
in—7"We will rule the Convention or it
sha]l "break up in a row."
Yesterday (Sunday) afternoon at 7 o'.
clock the Democratic Delegates held a
caucus at the capital, adjourning at 11
o'clock, for (he ostensible purpose of say
ing their prayers and retiring for the
night, but with the real object of perfect
ing their intrigue. The Republican mem
bers having apprehensions—well-ground
ed they have since proven to bo —that
the enemy was plotting to anticipate them
by an early organization, met at the Con
vention Hall at 12 o'clock last night,—
Not desiring to take any unfair advan
tage, they did not proceed to organize the
Convention by the election of permanent
officers, as they might legally have done-- j
having a majority of ail the members
but, ascertaining that the Democrats had;
only withdrawn to an adjacent hall for
the purpose of throwing them oil their
guard—they appointed a Committee of
rive to confer with them, and make some
mutual agreement for convening on the
uiorrow. A verbal arrangement was en
tered into between the parties, by vyhieh
each pledged Xhe other not to attempt an
organization until 12 o clock m. to-day.
The compact >yas reduced to \yriting and
signed by the Republican Committee,
when the Democratic Cpmmitßm, instead
of signing it as they had promised, qui
etly pocketed the document and drew up
and presented to the Republicans anoth
er, pledging themselves "not to organize
the Convention until the vsnal hour in
Legislative bodies!" Tim Republican
Committee now declined all the Demo
cratic proposals, returned to the ( onven
tion IJall, and remained at their post till
dawn. The desperate taction —sell-styled
Democracy—made an attempt to get pos
session yf fhe hall during the night, but
their plot was thwarted, and the morning
rose on delegates who had C;■ xf
watched the night, and dclended the
,\iusc and the Constitution against the
treacherous strategy of tin.* Holder Ruf
fians.
They remained at their vigils during
the forenoon, and at 12 in. "a scene" oc
curred. C. L. Chase (Pern.), Secretary
of the Territory ( pijt .n>t a delegate to tbo
Convention ), stepped into tho Speaker s
desk, and ended he Convention to order.
The Democrats luid taken their seats.—
Kxdiov, Gorman, seeing a dangerous Re
publican prcpondajwfJJCQ, moved "that this
Convention do now adjourn until 12 o'-
clock noon to-morrow!" J■ AV. North
(Rep.) stepped upon the other end of the
platform and attempted to put to vote a
nomination which had been made ofT. J.
Galbraith for President pro tern. The
motion to adjourn got precedence, and in
the midst of the most perfect Redlam,
from out the depths of a tumultuous, tem
pestuous thunder-storm of cas" and
<N;lyis," the Secretary pronoiiuced the
Convention (what Convention.') adjourn
ed! As no "Convention" yet organ
ized, oy assumed any tangible form, this
summary "adjourn rucipt"- is supposed to
he typical of the fast age.we live in. Alr.
North then put the nomination of Mr.
Galbraith, and that gentleman was elect
ed temporary Chairman. The Democrats
withdrew and the fifty-six Republicans
proceeded with U permanent organization
of the Convention. St. \. D. Ralcombe
(Rep.) was elected permanent President
(as you have already learned by telegraph)
and all the offices were tilled with Repub
licans. The Convention has also accept
ed, in behalf of the people of Minnesota,
the proposition of Congress, "to come in
. "to the l uiou at this time, on an equal
"looting with the original States," and
has acquiesced in all the provisions of the
Enabling Act.
Meantime, while the Republican ma
jority of the Convention have been labor
ing with dignified success in execution of
the trust imposed by Congress, the sore
headed Remocratie minority outside have
done nothing except hold caucuses and
threaten. One of them was overheard
to say a short time ago, '"We will have
possession of that hall before morning."
At tho time I write —11 p. m., Monday
—every Republican is in his seat, fully
determined to watch out another night
and defend the seats and the officers
against any and every invasion. Some
of the pale-hearted look for violence to
morrow ; I thjnk the threats of the dough
faces will evaporate in smoke, though if
their numerical strength were equal to
their desperation and recklessness, I do
not doubt they would attempt to carry
them into execution. Secretary Chase,
Indian Agent Flandrau,, Jv\-(i<v. (for
mat). Gov. Medary, and Orr of South
Carolina, who is now in the city, are con
spiring together to wrest the Convention
front the Republicans. There are now
three courses, either of which they can
take, ami oqe of which they will proba
bly adopt to-morrow.
I. They can come respectfully into the
Convention, take their scats like men,
and acknowedge that they were in error
to-day.
11. Resort to violence and physical
force to accomplish what they caunot do
qthenyise.
111. Convene to another place, and
set up an independent lonvention of;
ihoir own.
A voice in a crowd at the door of
the Mozart Hall, in Louisville, the other
night, *" as heard to say, "look out for
your pocket books.'' A gent who was
up the steps at the time, instinctively
clapped bis hand on the breast of his
coat, where be had his pocket-book, with
some S7O enclosed, and feeling safe,
thought no more of the warning, After
leaving the Hall, at the close of the lec
ture he had attended, he discovered that
his pocket had been cut and his money
stolen. That warning cry had been the
ruse of the thief to ascertain who had a
pocket book, and where it carried.

LAWRENCE, K T , July 11, LSJJ
A formidable military expedition has
been plauued by the War Department.
Its avowed ulterior object is Utah.
to concentrate in Kansas. Col. Sgmuei
with a lorce of nearly 1,200 men, is ullt '
toward Platte River, in advance of rho
rest. Major Sedgwick, wRh several huu
died mure, js (4 the greai bead oi
the Arkansas River. Meanwhile, other
try ops are concentrating at Leaveu worth,
and a heavy force is destined to nr t di
westward by the 20th int. In all prum
bility, it will be the Ist of August bylV> trt
they get fairly started.
Such arc the aspects of the ea a e that
present themselves, but there is souiethiug
in all its features worthy of serious at ten
tion. As to the relative merits ut a mil
itarv expedition against Utah I have
nothing to say. Let me direct attention
to another point. Toward the close oi die
Summer, when the grass is withering au<J
drying up, when the streams are dry and
the plains scorched and arid, a large >oii.
itarv force proposes to undertake a march
that will require nearly three mouth*
During the whole of that time this fa
tiguing march would be carried ou at a
great distance from the base ot supple*.
Allowing that they encounter 110 delay,or
are not hindered by being obliged to keep
the Indians in cheek, they vvuiild arrive
in L'tjih about the Ist of November.—
Their horses and teams would beoxhaus
ted, ii many ot theiu did not perish on
'the way. The grass will begone. There
will be no pasturage nor needed proven
der. They will be encircled by black
mountain ranges, (drain lojr the horses,
food and clothing for the men, aimuuui
—;dl ,>f the iuimense supplies that
such a force require, must be conveyed
over a drearv, snow-covered waste in \\ iu
ter. Of course every rational man will
j see the utter folly of such an enterprise.
Nor do L think the War Department se
riously contemplates anything of the kiuj.
1 think the excitement about I tah is
made a blind to cover something else. I
believe the design is to concentrate a
large military force in Kansas this Kali
and W inter. 11l corroboration of this, 1
learn that at Tort Riley, the contracts for
cutting hay have been given out, and for
a much larger quantity than ever used
before. This, too, in taee of tlu* fact that
there are 110 troops there ;;t present. It
is the same elsewhere. The same exten
sive preparations are being made to main
tain a large military force 111 Kansas the
jensujug fall and Winter.
This may not mean anything, hut it
looks suspicions. The Pro-Slavery Con
vention which will assemble at Leconip
t ton will triune a Constitution, and, I be
lieve,"will send it to Congres without
i submitting it to the people " fairly,' or
!even submitting it at all. The language
recently held by Douglas was significant
of a desire to further legalize what those
men proposed to do. The present atti
tude of Cov, Walker is hostile to the
Free-State men, and has a partisan lean
ing to the Rutlin party, liurculean ef
forts'are being made, through intrigue
and corruption, to induce the Free-State
men to abandon their position under the
Topeka Constitution. Is it the design
to break down the people's Constitution,
so that the other eau ho accepted when
it is out of the way ? It looks very
much as if this was the design, and
as if the consent rat ion of a military force
in Kansas at such a time was foreshad
owing sonic contemplated viilany. Alter
all that has been done, we may well view
all such suspicious circumstances with
distrust.
