A scientific observer reports that he has detected traces of arsenic in the crops raised from seed which had been steeped in arsenic to prevent smut. If so Small an amount of Poison can so Albect Tho soil As to be taken up by Tho wheat crop what must the result be when it is used in Many Hundred times Tho proportion As where it is scattered Over Fields of potatoes often for successive years arsenic remains arsenic forever and suffers no loss of its poisonous qualities in the lapse of years or in whatever combination it May enter. Or. Dewey prof. Tusen and m. A Dou urd join in warning Tho Public against the poisonous effects of arsenic in even so Small a Quantity As is found in crude superphosphate of Lime used As 1 manure.

Tho pall mall Gazette of March 18, says Tho expectations of French wino growers with regard to Tho Vintage of 1874, have not been disappointed. It has Provod one of the most abundant of Tho Century. Indeed since 1800, it has Boon exceeded Oulu three times in 18 55, in 18 30, and in 180 and in Ibl i the gain was vory slight. But it is when to compare Tho Vintage of 1874 with those of the three years immediately preceding that we become fully aware of its exceptional abundance. It exceeds the yield of 1873 by 27,421,000 hectolitres and that of 1872 by 1 3,000,000. The average Price of late years of Ordinary wino in Franco exclusive that is of wino in bottle and of the highly prize cams is estimated by m. Do Rovillo at about 51 francs 00 centimes liven at this Low average Tho gain of Franco of Tho whole Community that is not of the winegrowers by Tho excess of the production of last year Over that of the preceding year was fully .�55,000,000, or More than one fourth of the indemnity paid to Germany. The fact illustrates m a very striking Way How dependent to still Are upon Tho weather with All our boasted inventiveness and it suggests too How immensely the material Prosperity of even the most advanced countries May be expected to to increased by such an and Vanco of Petrological science As will enable agriculturists to foresee and Tako precautions against changes of temperature. But in the meantime Tho extraordinary productiveness of last year s wine Harvest can hardly fail to Lave important political consequences especially As Tho Corn Harvest was equally abundant. It will not Only enable the Rural population to Bear with greater ease the Burden of increased taxation but it will also give the Workman of Tho towns his wine at 11 More reasonable Price. F appears to be beyond a doubt that the Homo consumption of wine decreased very sensibly last year. This was due to several causes among which May be mentioned the very deficient Vintage of 1k73, which necessarily increased the Price in the Early part of last year the considerable augmentation of Tho wine duties required by the necessity to raise so in Large a Revenue and Tho depression of business generally which prevailed throughout the whole year. The abundant Vintage of 1874 will tend to these causes and to prevent wine from becoming so dear As to seriously a Fleet the working classes. As a set off it must be stated however that the Price fetched by a Largo portion of the wine exported fell so considerably that Tho aggregate sum received for the exports amounted to no More than x10,275. I20, against �11,250,000 received in 187.1, when the crop was so deficient. But As we shall presently see Tho Quantity exported is but a very Small portion of the whole and furthermore to Are not told if there was a falling off in Quantity As Well As in prior. In any Case even if Tho abundance of Tho Vintage did not Benefit Tho producers much it benefits the Consumers All Tho More Oil Eliut very a . A local correspondent of Tho Bouton Globe relates this Remini sconce of anti slavery times in Tho year 1849 or 1850, Hon.

On receiving Tho copies the Man asked Tho Printer if to could Send him to some benevolent person. That gentleman who had just read Tho article in the transcript gave him the address of or. Sargent at armory Hall where several wealthy gentlemen had desks and wore accustomed to meet daily telling him to say that or. Theodore Parker sent him with Tho request that to would read Tho Lotter.
