(gwmttfl jfrtat-v gqitiml SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 0, 1871. A CHAPTER OF WONDERS. Little people have been delighted with fairy stories ever since fairies were thought of, but I can tell you something far more wonderful than your fairy stories, and true, besides, which makes it more interesting. If you think small peoplo two or three Inches high are amusing, what would you think of a little creature so small as barely to be seen by the naked eye ; so small, indeed, that he and thousands of others havo pleuty of room to live, and grow aud travel around in a tiny puddlo of wator ? And what sort of a house would you think such an atom of a thing could build ? What if 1 should tell you that he can build a brick house : that he selects from the water in which he lives the necessary materials, shapes them in a mould which he has in his body, and piles up a regular bouse for himself? You can hardly believe it, but it is perfectly true. What do you think of creatures so tiny that a "whole famil...

The development ot our unrivalled resources, the transportation of the'products of the soil and tbe work of machinery, the necessities of travel and tho impoverished condition of many sections of Virginia, imperiously demand the completion of tho old, and the construction of new lint s of railroads. Hut the great difficulty is to find the capital willing to invest whore there is but faint probability of an adequate return. Tho average cost of railroads in this Stato is about $40,000 por mile, and this in new enterprises becomes an obstacle not easily surmounted. Can this expense be lessened aud good accomplished ? This is tbe question which the scientific aud commercial world has been considering, and which has brought to light the results of experiments more or less satisfactory.

George Geddes, of Onondaga, was present; and the way ha did cut and slash among the theorists with his sharp, practical sense, was refreshing to hear. If there is one thiDg more than any other that wo like to know belongs to man, is common sense; and there is nothing that breeds it so surely as hard work on a farm, or dealing with material facts anywhere. Take, for instance, the hackneyed old theme of whether One HUNDRED B USIIF.LS OF corn can be produced per acre, which waa being discussed wben wo last entered the clubroom. W. Wilson, of Coatsville, Pa., had written tho club that he doubted the statements of the Professor of Foreign Marble in his history of the Worth Farm concerning tho production of 110 bushels per acre, and adds:—"ln this vicinity I cannot find any ono who credits it.

. l ■ ■ -i— -= Til* Petrrsliurg Index on Ihe Decision of Judge Mann nna Ibe Journal. The Petersburg Daily Index, of the 4th instant, takes us to task for, and attempts to refute, our article in relation to the remarkable decision of Judge Mann, of that city, in tho contested election case of Armistead vs. Davis. It gives an account of the case, and justifies fully the decision of the Judge, by which Mr. Armistead was awarded an office for six years, which Judgo Mann, Mr. Armistead aud the Index know tin people did not desire him to fill, which they kuew would not be given him if the case was remanded to the people— a decision by which Judge Mann seized the power which the constitution and laws of the StAlo place in tbe hands of the people, and virtually appointed a man to an office which, by our constitution and laws, is made elective. The argument of the Index, in support of this decision, is based upon two propositions : First, that by tho election law of tbe State tho decision of...

Reaves, Marshall, Mo., had two fine steers that were fed ou corn until March 25 and then turned into a field of red clover. "After they had been on the field twelve or fifteen days, on the evening previous to their death they appeared to bo unusually full and uneasy, and ou the following morning found them dead. Now I wish to know if clover will kill cattle ?" Mr. Dodge said yes ; it generntes gas in the stomach, resulting in bloat or hoven. Mr. Peters never had trouble whou he turned bis cattle into fresh clover, provided they were not turned iuto it until tho dew was off and had been previously fed salt aud ashes mixed. Mr. Qeddes said that the best way to relieve an animal affected by hoven or bloat is to puueture the ttuimal wilh a dirk-shaped knife (which every herdsman should carry) iv the flauk, on the left, about three inches below the spinal column and midway between the last rib and...

Bprrr.li of Gov. Ueaiy, of l'r lill.y I vanl«, Delivered Before the Working■ll.n*. Council. [EXTRACT.] There should be no conflict between labor and capital, and if wise counsels pro rail they will go hand in hand. I have always looked upon labor and capital as twin sisters, or, perhaps, to illustrate my meaning more strongly, as the Siamese twins, connected together with a cord, the severing of which might be fatal or greatly injurious to both. Without labor capital would be comparatively useless ; without capital labor would fail to be remucorative, and public and private enterprise would cease. Neither can, therefore, •ncroach upon or wrong the other with Impunity. lam a friend of that protection to American labor which has brought this country to its highest condition of prosperity ; and when the nation extends Its protective and fostering policy over the productive and manufacturing interests the capitalist and transporter should not be permitted to apply all the advantages to ...

The people of this city have not forgotten, nor do we intend to allow them to forget, that the mercenaries who control our municipal affaire have increased the city debt during the last year $682,129.50, and that there is now a deficiency to be provided for in round nurt.bers of half a million of dollars, or, to be exact, $450,---799 22. We have day after day pointed out item after item, sum after sum, squandered or pilfered from the city treasury, part of this deficit and increased indebtedness, until the itemized list is as long as a yard-stick ; but up to this time no one has dared to undertake to deny the truth ' of our statement or tho positive accuracy of our figures. As a consequence the impression has been growing stronger every ! hour that the public funds have not otly < beeu squandered recklessly, but robbed and pilfered mercilessly.

A correspondent of the Rural New Torker, at Washington county, Virginia, asks us to furnish him with facts and "statistics" likely to sustain the argument that agricultural societies aro conducive to the agricultural development of tho country. It is not easy to separate and define the influence these societies have had distinctively and directly upon agriculture in the Northern States. For immigration and internal improvements—such as the building of railways, canals, etc. —have been stimulants to production. On the other hand, the increased production resulting from competitive rivalry at fairs and tbe mingling of faimers with each other and their interchange of experience, has attracted immigration and stimulated internal improvements. So, as we have said, it it nut an easy nutter to give facts and figures that can be regarded as illustrative, exclusively, of tho influence of agricultural societies upon agricultural production and the progress and prosperity of agriculturists, Bu...

The writer traces the process by which the people of England havo gradually been divorced from the soil, and shows how pauperism has kept even pace with the progress of land monopoly, while the land-owners themselves have steadily endeavored to shake the burden of supporting the poor, who havo been chiefly made so through their instrumentality.
