The sight of a Man on a sulky cultivator sweeping through a a Corn Field astride the rows and leaving scarcely a live Weed behind him leads As to speculate a Little on Tho Cost of raising Corn by Tho old and methods. We wiil take a piece of 80 acres 1g0 rods Long by 80 rods wide and calculate four rows to the Rod running Ono Way. If the breaking up and harrowing Cost s2 per acre we have s1g0, As the Cost of preparing Tho ground for the crop there will be 320 rows in the plat and with a Drill drawn by one horse the com May be dropped Ono foot apart and covered i four Days Quot Tho horse walking �?T20. Miles a Day. At $2 a Day Liis would.,be $10. It will take a Man and a pair of horsed four Days to cultivate once which at $3 50 per Day wiil Cost 314, and Tor cultivating five times s50, making the whole Cost $210. J the 80 �ere3 with this attention on Good land would produce 40 bushels to Trio acre or More say 3,50 bushels. The Corn fool Der to think would be a fair offset against Tho esp Sosa or harvesting and storing As it is cow generally admitted that Well poured and cared for it is Worth two thirds As much As the Best Hay. This would make the coat of Tho Corn a trifle less than eight cents a Bushel. Cultivating the same piece by the bid method Tho Cost of preparing the ground would a Tho name $1g0 marking out the ground both ways with plow $20 planting at 51 an acre $80, cultivating or blowing Between rows both ways Sis times $8g then hoeing three times at is 50 an acre each tame s3g4 making Tho expense about $708, or 22 cents nearly three times As much As by Tho new method. The proportions if not the figures being nearly accurate. There Are variations of these methods increasing or diminishing Tho Cost some do not Uso any Drill or planter but make rows both Waya and Plant by hand covering with Tho Hoe and do All cultivation by horsepower. Tho hand planting increases Tho Cost. If Tho land is poor and the yield less of course Tho com cost3 More. On Somo farms the Cost of raising Corn is probably a Dollar a Bushel. On Tho Prairie under favourable conditions it does not problys exceed Quot ten cents per Bushel. There is on a average to think a difference of two Hundred per cent in favor of Tho new methods. Resumption or navigation on tan recent Rise a the River at Cincinnati has opened navigation for first class boats. The Louisville and Cincinnati mail boat company a Steamer general Lytle loft for Louisville on theil ii. A a our presidents. A it is noteworthy or at least an individual of a curious turn of mind might think it so that of our seventeen presidents All but five have borne Christian names of scriptural origin. Of these ten Oro names from Tho new testament four Jameses three Johns two Androws and Oil Thomas and two from Tho old testament namely Jsu chary and Abraham. Of the five non scriptural names two Georgo and Martin Are appellations of noted saints in the Church Calendar. The other three Aro William Millard and Franklin. But three of Tho presidents have rejoiced in Middle names. A these Are John Quincy Adams William Lenry Harrison and James Knox Polk. Still More interesting is it to examine Tho surnames of the presidents. No fewer than eight terminate really or Tyno logically with the word is an abbreviation of Adamson Jefferson is the Samo As Geoffrey son Madison is a contract Tion of Matthewson Jackson is of course the Samo As Johnson Harrison is a corruption of Ilen Ryson Pierce comes from and Johnson explains itself. These Tho old English Stock from which has come Many of our chief magistrates for in Tho Anglo Saxon times it was customary for a Man to add. A a Sony to the name of his father and id this Way to Forman appellation for himself. Thus some Remote ancestor of the Jeffersons was called Geoffroy and his son styled himself a a Geoffrey a a Sony or Geof Frey son which Intima became Jeff Erst a the name of Washington like All those ending in a ton a was originally the name of a town or Village and was undoubtedly first a suit cd by some one living or owning property in the. Vicinity of one of Tho three English places bearing that Cognomen. Thus the singular anomaly is presented in Tho Caso of our capital of an individual deriving his name from a locality and of that name being afterwards taken from a individual and applied to a locality again. Monroe is most Likely a contracted form of the French Mont Royal or a Royal Mountain a and would appear to indicate that Bur fifth president was of Norman descent. Van by Ren is derived from Buren a to in of Holland the Yan signifies a of a and the name was assumed by one of Tho forefathers of Martin Tiren who wanted to designate himself by some Moro definite Cognomen than that of Plain John or Peter or Martin and so called himself from his Nativo place John or Peter or Martin of �?obu-i1 Ren. A Tyler is also a English a a a to Lerz or tiler using Tho title Ofa craftsman who tiles roofs. Polk is Scoter being a contraction of Pollock which name is still in use in Scotland both As a family patronymic and. The name of a place. Taylor is our Ordinary a tailor a slightly disguised by spelling. Tho derivation of Fillmore is unsettled. It Miry to simply a contraction of two words a a fill and a More a or it May Como from Tho French Feuille movie meaning Leaf or it May be the same As a Filmer a which would seem to have its origin in the word , Buchanan is scotch being Tho name of a Parish in Scotland and formerly that of a Ella 16 Sci been borne by several eminent Scotchman. Lincoln originates in the name of the Well Khawn county in England it is ancient Brit ish. And its interpretation is a a Hill by Tho the names of twelve presidents Aro therefore pure English two Are Norman or French two Are scotch and one is in Tab. The name a of six Are taken from the names of places. Some noticeable historical deductions May by drawn from these facts Byan acute antiquarian. I. A a a a new is is a a Brolly Kaowili in mtg Rny a Revenue tax per Pound is Vollee Tableton All a Cotton exported from this a this tax a legitimately payable at the place of production but in. Order to Facilitator ales tiie Treasury depart ment allows Cotton to to shipped in Bond from to Northern ports and the tax to be collected at tier warehouse when Export is made. Not Long ago a Defi Cooney was discovered Between the number of Bales of Cotton called for by the books of a certain Cotton warehouse of this City and the number of Bales in store. An investigation into this discrepancy brought out Tho fact As is alleged that about three Hund rect Bales belonging to different parties and left on storage had mysteriously disappeared and Are supposed to have found a european Market with out first paying the tax required by the internal Revenue Law. The warehouse in which this Cotton was stored was with its contents destroyed by fire a few months since and the three Hundred Bales now alleged to have Beer surreptitiously removed we to supposed to have by a a burned such probable destruction of the Cotton would Liao been credited until now had it not been As is alleged that when the parties owning the warehouse made application Tor the payment of their instances Tho usual investigations Renado by the companies was instituted and resulted in the discovery that the presence in the warehouse at Trio time of Tho conflagration of the three Hundred Bales for a which payment was claimed could not be proved by. The Hooks of Trio establishment. Tho principal party connected. With this affair Isnow in Canada Thead Juster of the insurances Lias Tho matter in charge and will if his surmises As to Tho fraud is Correct bring Tho matter speedily before the y. Herald -13ih nil. Young japanese in Tow a Tho Alt of october 3rd, says among the Young Japan Ese noblemen now in Sau Francisco bound for the Atlantic states where they will Bendy Tho English language and Tho arts and sciences of civilization Ara several of the sons of the highest families of the Empire one.

Woman either a according to his or her own account by any Accident Over. Possess but what a is very largely developed in even y body. A 1 a Mura in tha Frontu at an exp Clad Hugro instr acc Tho Prospect of a negro out Brnko in the South is beginning to excite serious alarm in official quarters Here. Several prominent gentlemen from the South have a a Fehily called upon Tho president and represented that the Negros Wero possessed of arms and ammunition in Large quantities. They Stato that the Blacks were organizing with hostile intentions and contemplated the Slaughter of defenceless Whites at the-1 first favourable a a Opportunity. Tax ago. Gentlemen urged Tho president to increase Force in Tho five military districts and thus by a timely1 display of Power of Vetaw the disaffected Blacks. Nothing Short of this they think will prevent an Early uprising of this half civilized class and the repetition of All the atrocities of san Domingo. One of these gentlemen predict that Tho War. Of Casto will commence before the expiration of a month. Unless the government adopts Strong measures to prevent such a calamity. This gentleman declares the Negros throughout the Outh Lff Ive a thorough understanding and that they have even fixed non the impeachment of the president As the proper moment for a bloody uprising. These gloomy forebodings May be Only Theu offspring of the natural fear entertained by the Southern Whites but i have reason to think that the government entertains the most serious Appelh onions. The Whites Are entirely unarmed and defenceless while the Blacks Nave an abundance of offensive weapons picked up from the battlefields during the War an since Puro Haspod by Money hoarded away. I am informed that Eca Coly a negro Cabin is without arms enough for four or five persons. The president will undoubtedly Tako Steps for the Protection of defenceless Whites but should Tho negroes revolt at the present Toio ment while Tho Whites Are so entirely de a ded of All Means of defense it is no exaggeration to state that one third of the latter would be butchered before the National forces would have time to offer effective us Cdr.
