the most interesting branch cl which to
the farmer is the dealing in pork. .
Poz'S Business. In the January !o
A the Agriculturist, we g-.v3 some ac.
csunt vi' this, and the slaughter and
paeiiing houses; but 'the business done
tho present year is much greater than
ever known before. " It is estimated
that upward of 30,000 !io have bec.ri
! killed at. Cincinnati the p-ast season
with a greater average weight than
any preceding year. Hany of these
were p.j.CAu uy ii.i.iia agents, ssnt

ter their c.vn method, for the market of
GrcatBritain, the sale of which thus far
Iia3 quite satisfactory, and will prove
cr.cc-urEging for the pcrk-raissrs cf the
west. In addition to the pork, great
qarmtitifs of lard are put up here, 12,
COO.000 pounds at least the past year,
worth nearly $-500,000.
Stock. Oi swine, as a matter of
ccurse, in thoneighborlrood of Cincin
nati, where so many hogs aro raised,
one would expect to find choico breeds;
uor would he be disappointed, for in no
district of country have wo ever 6een
a3 good animals generally prevail.-
Sheep are kept in considerable num
bers, but very few choice fine woolled
flocks ; which we think a matter of regret
the soil and climate are both admira
ble for the purposes of sheep-husbandry
Of cattle there are many varieties, the
best cf which, undoubtedly are the Dur:
harsc. Amon.t these, the choicest herd
within our observation was tnut cf Mr
William NetT, kept on his farm situated
on a fine Macadam road, about . seven
nVtfes from town, and it was a great
pleasure to us while .stay in in Cincin
natl to often vh;t the superb animals.
The herd is composed of a reserved

At. iefT from his own importations.

fje-ntb hills, and is as wide a' the Ohio

W e wish we could see the miserable

a point of national Interest, and is al

been the means ofdoub'.ing crops in sev
