HINTS ON BUTTER-MAKING. . Although everybody knows how to make but ter, everybody does not take that care and pains which thoy ought, and everybody does not look into the philosophy of the business as they ought and, indeed the whole philosophy of it is not yet so perfectly ascertained that everybody can bo sure that be knows all the " whys and wherefores" connected with the business. The first requisite is to have cows that give milk producing large quantities of cream. There is a great difference, .as everybody knows, in the quality of milk from different cows. The milk of some cows contains a largo portion of but ter particles, or cream, and comparatively little of cheese particles, or caseine, as it is now called. On the other hand, you will find cows that pro duco comparatively little cream, but a largo por tion of caseins. The next requisite is to have good food for your cows. There have been no very exact and definite experiments tried with the different grasses, by which the...

INTERESTING FROM SALT LAKE CITY There is so much bon hmmc in S. VV. B.'s, letter that we cannot resist the desire to copy it. It is from the Milwaukee Daily News: Salt Lake City, July 2G, 1852. ' Dear Mother 1 arrived here the day before a grand jubilee of the Mormons. They were cele brating the anniversary of the arrival of the Pio neers who first planted their Colony, and I be lieve, first discovered the valley. The proces sion was magnificent.

The Sxut Cahjll. We publish, for the in formation of the people, in another column, the uct of the last session of Congress, appropria ting 750,000 acres of land for the construction of the Saut Canal. We beg to nay only that no work of so great importance to the whole State has engaged the attention of the public. The great Superior country is quite undevelop ed, and it must, to & very considerable extent, remain so, unless the Cunal is made. Its value to Michigan is beyond calculation; it is that pearl of great price to our industrial interests "which should be first considered by the Legis lature. It is a project emphatically of the peo ple, and in their trusty hands Congress has placed the means of constructing the work. It remains only to receive the impress of legisla tion from this State to insure its early com pie tion. Private interests have no right to obtrude upon the Legislature : and those interests ex cluded, there is no danger to be apprehended. Dot. Free Press. W...

MINNESOTA. A gentleman who has been engaged in survey ing a Territorial road from Lake Pepin, to the most Southern bend of the Minnesota, sends the Minnesotian tho following sketch of the coun try which he traversed ; The extreme length of the road is 113 miles. A tangent would make it about 105, thus losing 8 mile's in avoiding swamps, &c The country near the lake is very broken, be ing cut up by ravines descending from the high lands to the lake. In many of these ravines may be found some of th richest farming lands in Minnesota. Hardly a ravine but has its "trout brook" shaded with a luxuriant grovo of all kinds of timber. At your near approach to the highlands.you continually encounter springs; and it is not an unfrequent occurrence to find at the very height of some ridge, a spring of limpid water. We made it a point to search the high est lands for water. After you leave the lake, say five or six miles back, you will find a different country, the soil of winch would be har...

Teetotallers will be glad to learn that an ex traordinary t-ise has taken place, in France, In the price of brandy.

LAKE SUPERIOR COUNTRY. Mr. Stuntz, of Grant county, Wisconsin, lias been deputed by the General Land Surveyors of this Northwest district to lay off such a track of tand about the Southwest point of the Lake into townships and sections, as emigration will first require. He returned via. La Point and Stillwater last week. Wo have obtained from him some new views 'of that region. From Fon-du-lac, a trading point, situated eleven miles inland on the St. Loui river, eastward, for perhaps fifty miles, the margin of tho lake is a flat strip of land, reaching to a rocky ridge about eleven miles off. Tho soil of this flat land is a rich red clav. Tho wood is white co der and pine, and the most magnificent growth. Tho American line is beyond the mouth of the St. Louis, as far north-east as Pigeon River, one hundred miles. A mountain extends nil tho way between the St. Louis and Pigeon river. It evidently abounds in copper, iron and silver. Terestrial compass cannot bo used there so strong is...

" Notwithstanding the superior inducements for emigration to this State, it has been comparatively small. This is a matter that seriously effeets the interests of the State, and deserves consideration. Some steps 6hould be taken to inform the emigrant of our condition, the peculiar advantages possess ed by us, and to give each other information as is communicated to him by other of the Western States. There are yet within our limits 25,000,000 acres of land belonging to the general government. Most of these lands are fertile, productive, eligibly situated, easily improved, and cheaply obtained. No State can offer to emigrants more desirable lo cations and homes." After advocating the passage of a general Rail Itond law the following excellent sugges tions are made with reference to a general Bank, ing Law. .

Effect of Railroad upon the price of Land and Farming Produce. . It has been estimated by those whoso obser vation has qualified them to judge correctly.that the increase in the value of a etrip of land three miles wide, through which a Railroad is con etructed, is sufficient to build and stock it. The experience of the whole country has proved that this estimate is not extravagant. Every mile of a strip of land three miles wide one and a half miles each side of the road will contain 1,920 acres. The average increase in the price of such a strip of land has been not far from $15,00 an acre, in new and thinly settled districts of court try, it has been much more in many instances. This would be equal to 28,800 increaso to ev ery mile of the road; or in other words, if the farmers or owners of this strip of county should themselves build the Road, their land would be worth enough more to pay the whole expense of its construction, and they would own the Road besides. If Railroads, ther...

CALIFORNIA AND OREGON. The San Francisco Times of the 15th ult., says, the late rains in the mines have almost clo sed communication between many remote town9 and the large cities. As an evidence of this, we may refer to the case of Shasta City. By cer tain vague rumors, we had heard that a destruc tive fire occurred there on the night of the 27th Nov., yet the communication has been so imper fect that it was not till last evening that an au thentic account of the disaster reached us. By an arrival from Honolulu, some two weeks since, we received intelligence of the total loss of the ships Superior and Huntress ; the loss of the American ship George, and French ship Li ancourt, were reported a short time previously, . while it is not more than four months since the whale ship Huntress was wrecked on the coast of Kamschatka. Now we have to add to this list the further loss of the whale ship Bramin, and the serious damage of other vessels. Before the close of the season we shall proba...
