&l)e Xtnion. Junction City, Kansas, 8ATUEDAY, MA.Y 9, 1863. FROM ARKANSAS AND TEXAS. Mr. John Whitefokd, an old resident on Clarke's Creek, in this county, returned, -with his family last week. Mr. Wihteford has passed through the horrors of a rebel prison, his loyalty untarnished, but his sentiments considerably abolitionized. By way of paren thesis, a full view of the iniquities of Slavery. has a most beneficial effect. Mr. W. went to Texas some two years ago, but starting to re turn one year ago, he was captured by the rebels and confined at Fort Smith. After suf fering indescribable tortures of mind and body for some length of time, he was released. Think of standing for four days in six or eight inches of human filth, in a narrow cell, for merly used for the imprisonment of runaway negroes, with but a few inch-auger holes for ventilation, your mouth, part of the time, at one of the holes to secure air, and the remain der occupied in keeping the breath of life in by a fan un...

Jpcitlfaral tttntit. CURING TOBACCO. To cure tobacco you must hang it in a barn, free from exposure to the sun, on rails or poles. Hang up by the butts with twine. Commencing at one end of the pole, fasten the end of the twine ; then take a plant and wind once around, holding tight to the twine, then another plant on the opposite side, and wind once around, and so on until you get to the other end of the pole. Be careful not to hang too thick on the pole, or have the poles too near together, but have it so that you can see daylight up through the plants, after they have hung a few days aud get so they hang down. Let them hang until they are perfectly .dry, which will take from four to eight weeks, and then, when the atmosphere is damp enough from rain to make the tobacco soft, so that the leaves can be packed in the hands without breaking or cracking, so that the leaves will pack as you take hold of the plants, it may be taken down and the whole and perfect leaves tied in handfuls o...

---sssss " f. 52E?o Junction. City, Kansas, SATUEDAY, MA.Y 1G, 1863. ET The dispatches from the Army of the Po tomac are a jumbled up, incomprehensible mess of BtufF. Vauge and startling rumors of the cap ture of Richmond have been received. Nothing confirmatory, however, has followed ; nor have they been contradicted. The latest telegraph we have, before going to press, contains no news whatever from that army. The report, as con nected with the previous telegraph is plausible, and the statement that a move was to be made from Fortress Monroe in the direction of Rich mond, but adds to its probability. No official news of the affair has as yet been divulged, but we opine were our troops safely in the rebel capital the news would be too glorious to with hold from the people. Would to God that it is so. Peace would speedily follow the downfall of the rebel capitol a conquered peace would bed its lustre over the land. Affairs on the Rappahannock are somewhat lulled by the unfathomable ...

gnodtWai f 0tanJ "LAMP AS IN HORSES. The horizontal bars in the roof of the horse's month are undoubtedly intended to retain food in the mouth while it is being masticated. They are abundant ly furnished with blood vessels and neires, and are therefore very sensitive. When colts are teething, the disturb ance of the adjacent parts sometimes causes these bars to be inflamed and swollen: Then the animal cannot eat without pain, and uninformed persons have ascribed the falling off of appetite under such circumstances, to a disease named "Lampas." To remedy the supposed ailment, it has been recom mended and is still practiced in some localities, to burn out the swollen bars with a red-hot iron made for the pur pose. The operation is an unnecessary and injurious cruelty. The portion of the mouth thus destroyed, can never be replaced, and thus the power of perfect mastication is impaired. The only surgical operation allowable in cases needing assistance, is to lance the in flamed parts, t...

The apologizers of treason men whose pro Blavcry instincts lead them to justify assaults upon the Government, but whose circumstances or want of manhood forhid the overt act have organizations, of a secret nature, throughout the .North. Their object is to counteract the tfforts of the Administration in securing a permanent peace by means of the war power, which would result advantageously to the whole countryat the expense of their rebel brethren. The sensi tiveness of this class of men, in this particular, is a pretty certain indication that rebellion is an offspring of slavery. Hence all their efforts in opposition to the anti slavery attitude of the Administration. ...

In reply to the above question of u correspondent, the Genessee Farmer remarks : The answer must depend on circum stances on the character of the soil and the system of agriculture adopted, as well as the price of mutton and wool, or the taste and experience of the far mer. During the past year, on account of the great demand for the army, coarse, long wool brought an unusually high price. How long this demand may con tinue is uncertain. If we might calcu late on anything like the present relative price of long and fine wool, we should be entirely safe in saving that the long wooled sheep would prove the most profitable in all sections of the country where mutton is in demand. In saying this we do not wish to" be understood as ,sserting that, leaving the mutton out of the calculation, more wool can be...

In accordance with youf kind request4 that I should write an essay on " Tim ber Trees,5' to be read at this meeting, I will endeavor, in a brief manner, to throw out a few thoughts on the subject. I approach the task assigned me, with great diffidence, and feel that one with more leisure and ability should have been selected to accomplish it. - I need not enlarge on the great utility of timber trees. In the great West, where we may often travel many miles without meeting a single tree, an immense amount of timber is required for fuel, fencing and building purposes anti may I not add, for shelter and wind-breaks around our orchards and buildings. " A treeless plain, Tiow fatiguing to the eye, while the woods embellish the landscape." While the great desideratum of our prairies is the want of timber trees, our timber is fast disappearing from ...

m liiotlfural alwm. ESSAY ON TIMBER TREES. ' BY JONATHAN HUGGlNS, WOODBUBNj ILL. (Concluded.) The Tulip tree is one of our tallest trees, valuable for many purposes, but thought, by many, to be impatient of removal, and hard to grow from the seed. The Black Walnut, and the Butternut or "White Walnut, are fast growers when under cultivation; hardy; and if they are ever troubled with insects I am not aware of it. They are easily grown from the seed, which should be planted in the fall where you wish them to grow, as thev are very sensitive of removal. Both varieties are valuable for their fruit and timber, and should be found in every grove. The Sugar Maple, or Hard Maple, as some call it, attains a great height, but is a slow grower as compared with the Silver Leaf Maple. It is valuable for fuel and many other purposes. The seed drops in the fall, and should then be planted, or caretully kept from dry ing until spring. The Red or Scarlet Maple, naturally found in swamps, will thrive ...
