ftponse to oor petition for executive clemency,
and to came tbe day he listened, to those who
have used him for their own ends; who have
used the pnblio prisons to gratify their private
malice; who have suborned witnesses to prove
guilt against tbe innocent; and above all, be
will have reason to regret that he has so long

Tli© Great Colorado Desert Jielow
The theory that the great Colorado desert is
below tidewater, and might be flooded by dig~
Ring a canal from tbe Golf of California, re*
oeivefl important corroboration from the state*
ment of Mr. Denton, of San Diego, who has
been traveling through the desert with an ex*
ploring party. On their arrival at New River
Station, on the New Itiver, which runs'from
Colorado, they fonod tbe water subsiding stead
ily, indicating that the stream wonld soon be
dried np. Advancing into the desert they came
to an oveifliwed section on which tbe water
was two feet deep, and when tbey reached tbe
New River again, abont sevonty miles from
where they first struck, they found the water
from four to aix feet higher than at New River
Button, and running like a mill race. This
proves that tbe deprcsHion in the desert, a? ore
advances from the Colon do, is quite marked.
A fact rot generally known is that at extreme
high U**e« tbe tide of the Califorria Gulf rifles
from twenty-five to thirty-five feet, and this
formidable body cf water ruflbes up tbe Colo-
rado, backing np tbe fresh water.
now They Kill Tliem Over In Ala-
Mr. D. F. Front, a largo planter living in the
Ganebrake" section of Alabama, writes a let
ter to the, Selma-Times describing his method
of killing the caterpillar, and which has proved
entirely suoccs*fal. He says;
I had ordered two hundred pounds of Paris
green from New York about t middle of Jnly,
bnt it was delaved on the way acd did not reaoh
here until tbe first of August. In tbe meantime
the worm had appeared in large numbers on the
most luxuriant of my bottom land cotton and
threatened sorions injury. Immediately on its
leoeipt I commenced vigorous operations in
tbe following meaner: The different eqnsds
hsving been provided with all tbo appliances for
bsnling water rapidly and storing it conveniently
ia the field, six active, oartfal hands were pnt
in charge of that number of two gallon watering
pots, and were waited on by other hand*, each
snpplied with a common blue bucket. An iron
teaspoon was filled heaping with tbe Paris
green, and was thoroughly mixed with about
two gallons of* water in the buckets, poured
into the watering pots, and immediately applied
to the plants. To thoroughly sprinkle the cot-
ton nboot forty gallons of water to the acre
were used, and this quantity required abont a
ponnd of Paris green.
Water being abnndtAnly supplied, acd the
hands active and willing, the work went on
ith dispatch, and in a day and a half sixty
acres were watered. Tula being all that waa
seriously infected. I stopped operations for the
time. In twenty-fonr hoars after tho applica
tion of the Paris green the worms were nearly
all ddad or dying, and tbe cotton is now pat
ting on a new growth. To destroy the worm
effectually the plant must be thoroughly water
ed, and f nongb of tbe Paris green n«ed to be
perceptible on tbe leaves. After it is well dried
a light rain does not remove it, but it will re
quire time to test its power applied in this way
to effeot tbe seoond crop hf worms.

in order to win votes rather than serve tho beat

likely to be considered more with a view to

by popular men controlling votes are fri q lently

Down on Agricultural College*,
The Boston Journal of Chemistry strikes a
new rote in tbe following:
It i« well known that connected with Har
vard University is a department of agricnllnre,
magnificently endowed; known as the Baasey
school. This school has been dnly organized,
having its corps of accomplished instructors,
with lecture-rooms and laboratories, and all so
cessories for imparting instruction, but it is
without 'Indents. Daring tbe past year but
ae yonrgroan and one young woman have
thronged the baba” of tho Bn*«»ey Institution,
and there seems to be no decided indication of
the increa»e of Btpd#» c ts at present Tbe cor
poration of the Uoiversify aro puzz’ed to
know what to do with this foundation. It has
means enough, and room enongh and facilities
enongh. bat wbere are the students? To teach
agriculture or hnrticnRnre after anv of the
rules of ihv school is a d ffi-ult undertaking, and
mu*t resnlt in a foilnre. Why shall we deceive?
why thall we novei* np? Why shall we not tell
the truth? Onr agricultural colleges are fail-
nres—all of them. The difficulty lies not so
much in the honesty and capability of those who
are endeavoring to condnot them ; the plan, the
idea, the claims, are fonnded in eiror, and tbe
srener this is acknowledged, and a revolution
fleeted, the better it will he for the interests
of practicil agriculture. We clearly understand
that io thus taking decided ground against the
schools of agricnlfnre. Ro-oalled. which hAve
been established under Congressional ana State
aid, we d'saffect a considerable number of high
ly esteemed friends; but while we are Roiryior
this, we cannot smother our conviotlons, or
hesitate to declare the tralh. The colleges are
not failnreR from want of s'ndentR in all cases,
but from the faot that they do eo*. aid or pro
mote the great interest of practical husbandry
in any sensible degree. As educational institu
tions they mav be well enongh, but as "agricul-
tnral colleges" they aro failures.
Massachusetts rgrfcultnre is itself, we snp
pose, a rapidly declining interest. Tho pro
portion of area scsieptible of profitable tillage
very small and bears a high value, while the
high prioe* of all manufactured goods and of
labor, and the very low price3 of produce dis-
oonrage the growth of that industry. It is no
wonder, therefore, that a Mas? achusetts Agri
cultural school should lack pupil*. Bit it is
absurd to deny that a good reboot of natural
and applied science may be of great advantage
to the young practical agriraltnriat, or that In
fact it may not make him acquainted with all
the advances in practical agriculture by bock*
Patron •! Uasbaadry.
It seems that certain men who have been
leaders in days past, are now reeking an issue
with us, whether for the good of the dear peo
ple or for self aggrandizement, this deponent
saith not. Unfortunately, I think' for them,
ihe alarm has a j ngle of rule or ruin about it,
and consequently will be duly considered and a
irae verdict given. There are others also who
have long subsided upon prefits derived from
the toil and sweat of the poor ignorant former*.
And now forcoatfa, because these humble dod
hoppers dare to unite tn secure tbeir rights and
protect their interest, the cries of "Hambug"
and "Duplicity” are raised against them. The
order has Buffi riant merit in itself to oombine
all tbe agriculturists of tbe ooantry into one
oernmon brotherhood, which will be done at no
distant day, for their own protection and pre
servation, and all growlers and dissenters will
be remembered accordingly. The cry of affiiia
tion with the political parties cf the present day
nothing more thin a sound wiihont an echo.

unsettled and the Com mis doners hope to finish
