In our present issue wo shall simply outlino
tho subject, and first givo au extract from a
paper read by Krncst T. Ucnnert, Secretary
ot tho Maine Bjet Sugar Asiciatiou bel'ore
tho N, Y. Stato Agricultural Society.
Ho said tiiat sugar is exclusively an ngri
cultutaj production; the manufacturer only
extracting it from the crop in which it is
grown. Tho cultivation of tho sugar cano is
constantly growing less in tho West Iudios,
and whenever slavery shall be abolished there
it will nearly cease. Tho consumption oi'su
gir is constantly increasing, especially in tho
United States, which imports itinlargoquan-

unless tho land is rich and well manured aud
deeply cultivated. Beets pay in Kuropc at

will produco 40 bushels of wheat per acre.

age cellar temperaturo than it shodriuksfrom
a brook or spring iucold weather.
So far the result of tho experiment made
last season tn tho manufacture of beet sugar
iu manic nas Deen very encouraging. About
450 tons were worked up, yielding nearly
95,000 pounds of sujar about 10J per cent,
of tho green weight of tho roots. Thocun
pauv onljr uses tho roots grown from German
seed furnished at cost by themselves. Anal
ysis showed 14 to 15 nor cent of sugar iu the
roots grown from this seed in Maine, or n-s
much as when grown iu Kuropo. Some seed

ricultural Department, and unwed in Mniitn.
produced beets yielding only 5 per eeut of
sugar ; so tnat they wero worth less eveu tor
feedicg purposes than tho pulp left at tho fac
tory aner extracting the sugar. Tlio compa
ny paid last season $4 per ton to the growers;
this vear they will pay $5. Tho yield varied
last season from 15 to 40 tons ner acre, aver
aging 20 tons. This, at 4 per ton pays well,
as the cost of productionlia mostly labor which
rive huudred tons havn lwnn triln ilrtn.l in
Northern Maino (his vear wlilh iWrnmn-inn
willworkup soon, thero is no difficulty in
getting the sugar out of tho dried beets. Five
hundred pouisds of green roots make 00 pouuds
when dry. Tho pulp is excellent for feeding
cattle, but few of the Maino farmers could
be induced to try it. lien. Mattocks and one
or two others used it in larirn nuantitiW
paying 50 cents per ton for it. Three tons of
green oeets mako ono ot pulp, in Uermany
the tons and pulp are put into silos and thus
kept for daily use all summer.
To make a beet crop pay tho ground should
be plowed deep in the fall, having been well
manured lor the previous ciop. In the spring
as early as possible, the seed thould be sown ;
the earlier the better, as frost will not hurt
tho young beets. No weeds must bo allowed
to grow ; tho crop should be thinned as toon
as all danger fiom insects is past, and enough
seed should have been sowed, mj that no va
cant places may occur. Mr. Gennert said that
IB pounds pera;ro is inno too much, asagood
stand must be mada witsii. By the fourth
of July the crop should cover the ground.
The crop is not suited to tho prairio region, us
the summers aro either too wet or too dry.

Last week, tho Governor's palace, in liar-ri-burg,
ou tho banks of tho Su-quehauna,
resounded with the linginof decanters, tho
clinking of wino glasses, and maudliug con
viviality, costly decorations, expensive up
hnlsteiies, music aud dancing, far eclipsing
tlins'i of tho feast of Belshazzar, given in
Babjlon, ou tho banks of the Euphrates,
twenty-live hundred years ago, and with tbe
same barbaric indifference to the suffering of
thu people Thus our Republican Governors
and office holders live, riot, faro sumptuously,
ami array themselves more gorgeously than
tho lilies of tho field, while tho farmer, the
mechanic and tho laborer aro compelled to

Those grand gubernatorial receptious,routes,

in Pennsylvania. Neither Wolf, Bituer.l'or

now, and havo been given sinco tho days of
John W. Geary. Thcto meu received $3,000
a year and rented their own houses, and had
no yearly appropriation of from $4,000 to
$0,000 for furniture, &c, as now. But sinco
Republicans rule tho State, a palace with
$10,000 a year, and an annual appropriation
of four, five or six thousand dollars, for inci

our Republican Governors can now so hilari

moral effect of these grand gubernatorial re
ceptions which are p.iid out of tho taxes of

their husbands forbid a display like that mado

wonder that there is so much offioial corrup
