ii Jiw farmer. Catting and Caring Grain. Experiments lure pretty well settled the fact 'that wheat should be cat while the grain is in the state called doughy. The conclusion was, indeed, reached several years since in re gard to wheat, bat it has bj the experiments of Voelcker, been earl shown to be equally ap plicable to' oats; and it is also known to be equally applicable to Indian corn. At first it was feared by some that there would be a great shrinkage of grain, cat in this stage, which would amount to absolute loss. It is prored, however, that the sap of the stumps of straw is sufficient to perfect the grain, and that the grain, under such circumstances, even possesses some raiuable properties which it has not when it remains uncut till dead ripe. Mr. Colman states that he found by many in quiries in England that the "best rule for bar- Testing is not when the sulks below the head have changed color and the circulation has con sequently ceased, but when the grain, though it h...

Northern Missouri is becoming pretty well "co erced" or "subjugated" into law and or der. The North Missouri and Hanni bal and St. Joseph Railroads are now guarded by Union troops, and an Iowa regiment, nnder command of Col. Cur tis. now occupies St. Joseph. Where- cver the troops go, we notice a sudden letting down of the tone of secession journals all of which is very queer ; for, of course, the editors of these papers, who every day cnt Federal armies to pieces, and exhort'everybody to turn out and fight, ought to be thankful for an opportunity to act as well as blow.- The troops are arresting traitors by wholesale, upon charges of burning bridges, and other crimes. It is said they have a hankering to get hold of Prince Hadgens, in which holy desire we hopo they may speedily be gratified, Prince is supposed to possess a very clas tic neck, as well as conscience. ...

It is probable that tbo country will have to come to the good old Whie doctrine'of a National Bank at last. The necessity for one is keenly felt, and the qocslion is being agitated. Even such hard money organs as tho New York Herald speak favorably of the pro ject. JThcre never was a good argument " adduced against a National Bank, nor can there be ; on the contrary, i( would be -a benefit to the whole country. The Democratic party made opposition to a National Bank their chief hobby for years. ' and 'succeeded in making thousands of honest people believe that it was a mon ster, which was robbing them and eating np their substance. Then they destroyed the Bank, and made the people believe that the Whigs were tho authors of tho ruin which followed.

The impression pretty generally pre- yjuIs that mischief is contemplated by the Indiana on tho Western frontier. Those who have the means of knowing beat, express great fears upon the subject. They will be assiduously plied by emis saries from the seceding States, who will leave no means untried to instigate the savages to depredations npon unprotected loyal citizens. As much has been threat mud by the traitors, and they are not a whit too good to execute the threat, as far as the power in them lies. The In c dians are naturally inclined to" mischief, andjare treacherous in the extreme ; and no doubt great inducements will be offer ed to incite them to murder and pillage. It will be borne in mind that nearly eve ry Indian Agent (if not every one) un der the late Administration, sympathized with the South, and they are nearly to a man secessionists?
