I propose to tell the Gaz It? family how I realized $l,fi20 from ten acres of land in one season. The ten acres was a white clover sod that had been used as a cow pasture for the two previous years. T plowed it deep last winter. In April I planted it to corn. The cutworms destroy ed it entirely. I then replanted, in May, and sowed to millet. "When ready to cut it stood very thick and live feet high. It yielded four tons to the acre, which was worth $50 per acre $500. It was now plowed again and sowed to turnips, and the sight was manitkect to behold. The c rop was 6,000 bushels. I sold 400 bushels at lifty cents per bushel, and fed the re mainder to my cows. Estimating these as being worth twenty cents per bushel (a very low estimate), the remaining 5,000 bushels would be worth jl.1-0, and the whole, add...

Amo tion lias been lately made ly Tweed's counsel before Judge Drady, to change the sentence to what it was when it was orig inally entered. It arrears from the affida vit accom'auyiug the papers, made by the clerk, that Judge Davis made the change in the o.iler, cot publicly in open court, in the presence of the prisoner, but in an under tone rather privately to the clerk. Upon these statements Judge Brady holds that the change was illegal and that the Boss must be transferred to the county jail. Tbe latter prison is la New York city, in the charge of Tweed's friends, and we suppose tbe change will prove quite agreeable.
