THE PERftf mm JOURNAL VOL. III. PERRYSBURG, OHIO, SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1866. NO. 43, Agricultural. The Virtues of Snow. Professor Page, of Washington, communi cates the following to the National Intelli gencer. It is a tradition of long standing uinou" country people, that a hard winter with abundant snow guarantees a good crop year. Mr. Pago gives some of the philosohi tal processes which tend to this result : the ssow. The snow was proverbially called the. ' poor farmer's manure' before scientific analysis had shown that it contained a larger per cent age of ammonia than rain. The snow serves as a protecting mantle to the tender herbage (i iu( the roots of all plants against the fierce' blasts and cold of winter. An examination of snow in Siberia showed that when the temperature of the, air was seventy-two de btees b.dow z.ero the temperature of the snow a little below the surface was twenty-nine degrees above zero, over one hundred degrees difference. The snow keeps the earth just ...

338 THE PEIiRYSBURG JOURNAL. The Chinese Rebellion. An English gen tleman in China, writing to a friend, says : " The rebellion still continues in China, bat is now principally confined to the mountain ous parts. The rebels in the neighborhood of Canton were some time since driven away and captured, and the trade has been revived. By a report, obtained recently from good au thority, it appears that upward of 70,000 men have been publicly executed in Canton since the commencement of the Chinese new year, on the 17th of February last. The same authority states the number put to death at Shan-king-fu, at 27,000, and about 25,000 at the taking of the fort in Blenheim Reach, and the subsequent captures auong tha vil lages thereabouts. I believe, however, that the numbers are vpry much understated. I was at Canton in February last, and visited the rebels at the fort in Blenheim Reach. 1 also went to the execution ground at Canton, and it stank worse than half-a-dozen slaughter-houses. The...

339 The Pittsburg Gazette edited by one of the' sag-s of the north, whose words are wisdom and whose judgment is entitled to the utmost respect, says : " Looking ut the question with such lights hs are now before us, we incline to the opin ion, tliut the south is playing a deep game. We do not believe they will give Fillmore and Diiuldson one southern electoral vole. The object is to conquer by dividing thenorth. The south will throw its entire vote for the democratic pro-slavery sectional candidate. By dividing the north, Pennsylvania, and probably one or twp other of the free states, may bj carried for slavery. This would se cure the triumph of the slave-power, and de vote. Kansas, New Mexico, and Utah to sla very. Such is the programme. The. picture i dark, but it is best to look it fairly in the face. There is hone in one quarter, and on ly one, ami that is that the-great republican party w hich is now organized, may attract to its broad and liberal banner a sufficient number of...

THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. VOL. III. PERRYSBURG, OHIO, SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 185G. NO. 44. Agricultural. Pratt's Ditch Digger. Land draining is now a question of great interest among our western farmers. The whole north-western portion of Ohio must come, upon a system of draining, to avail themselves of the full use of one of the rich est sections of farming lands in the nation. The. same is more or less true of the whole range of counties west of the Miami valley, while for local purposes there is hardly a township in the state, or even in the entire, west, but would be greatly benefitted by tlior-1 ough drainage. In tins view of the case, machinery for digging ditches ami lor making! tiles are loudly called for, and if t hey could b, put in operation in this region,' would be. largely patronized. This subiect was discussed at the last an- mini meeting of the. Ftate board 01 agricul ture. Col. Kerr, of Fayette, said that in his region there was a great demand; that in de?ault of anythin...

The patent va3 signed by the president last week, and delivered by him at the white house to Col. Fremont in person. Patents are now generally signed by ths private sicretary of the president, who is thereunto authorized by an act of congress ; but Gin. Pierce signed this one with his own hand. The instru mint is engrossed upon parchment, and cov ers twelve shi3ls, including, on a large sheet of parchmmt, a finely-executed mip of Las Mirriposas, as surveyed by tli3 United States surveying-general.

347 lvouv. Few of our lady readers, while theypiep so bjwitchingly over the tips of their ivory fans, or ply their fingers so nim bly and gracefully over the white keys of the piano, are wont to cast a thought towards t lie manner in which this material is procur ed, the quantities of it which are annually used, and the number of noble animals which lire; annually slain for the purpose of supply ing the constantly increased demand. Mr. Dal ton, a celebrated SliT-fli-ld manufacturer, estimates that the annual consumption of ivory in the town of Sheffield alone is about 183 tons, equal in valm to 30,003, and re quiring tin labors of 500 persons to work it up for trade. The number of tusks to make up this amount of ivory is 45,000; and ac cording to this the number of elephants slaughtered every year for the supply of the Shefii.'ld market is 22,500. lint supposing some tusks to be cast, and smtH animals to have died a natural death, it may fairly bj estiimted tint 13.03 J are killed f...

J2-The Cincinnati Gazette and other pa pers recorrmsnd that but one set of electors be selected by both the Republican and K.N. parties, in each of the free states, with on understanding and pledge that the candidates of the party receiving the highest vote in such states as beat the pro-slavery ticket, shall receive thi vote of the electoral college so chosen. This seems to be the only course left open by which ths pro-slavery party can be baaten and every man enabled to vote his untramelled sentiments. It is a good move. The State Journal says that tin state house commissioners of Ohio have made a report to th3 legislature. It appears that the last legislature was importuned, as the present one is, for large appropriations, and di...

THE PEREYSBUM' MJKME; vol. nr.. PERRYSBURO, OHIO, SATURDAY. MARCH 22, 185G. NO. 45. Fat Meat as Food. The prevHiling fashion and taste are against the use of fat mutton -and beef. At hotels u iid in priv ate families, the fat mpat to which persons are served, is usually left, and the lean only eaten. Those who purchase meat, of course select the lean, instead' of the. fat ter pieces, and butchers, accommodating themselves to the demand, kill all sorts of lean and ill-fed animals. The losses resulting from this are many. In the first place, it is contrary lo public economy, the number of lean animals sacri ficed to secure a given weight of meat, be ing 1 wice as great as would be required, if nil the animals slaughtered lor food were well fattened. The cost of raising animals far ex ceeds the cost of fattening them, and there lore a pound of lean meat costs more '.o the nuiniiri man a uuiuiti 'i iai. u. cuirn uu uii-i necessary waste of animal life involved.- Another disadvantage res...

354 Patriotic. The merchants of Baltimore lately called a meeting at the Exchange to express their indignation at the conduct of the Hon. Francis P. Blair, for representing himself at the late Pittsburg republican con vention a3 the representative of " merchants of wealth and standing in Baltimore." What ever else the meeting demonstrated, they suc ceeded in proving this, that the merchants present were not of the number Mr. Blair represented; and they declared that " their loyalty to the south" must not be doubted. The papers spsak of the ' Baltimore republi can association," whose delegate Mr. Blair professed to be, as a thin unknown ; yet the meeting singled out a Mr. Francis S. Cock ran as the president of the. association, and proceeded to hustle him out.

TUB PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. 355 Seek desert, but wait for distinction, lie doubles his troubles who borrows to-morrow's Many literary "effusions" proceed from water on the brain. The high minded and low minded come in Contact without mixing, like oil and water. The chief mistake of most aspirants for greutness, is their neglect of the precept, " He that would be greatest among you, let liim be. your servant. Labor is the great support of good morals. After Adam and Eve. were obliged to earn their bread by the sweat of their brows, we hear no more of the serpent's tempting them. A man may think well, and yet not act wisely. The power to see what is right is very different from thr power of doing it. A man of moral energy, will accomplish more with a little knowledge, than a man of inferior will, with much. And strength of will is generally acquired by struggling with difficulties in early life. Lawyers OrjTwrrrti). Not long since, a man about to bi tried for the murder of hi? wife, agree...
