The Fanners' High School
[From Correspondence of The Press.]
The report of the Hon. Frederick Watts,
President of the Board of Trustees of the
Farmers' High School of Pennsylvania, to the
Legislature, is an interesting document, as
showing the complete success, thus far, of
the experiment. Gen. James Irvin donated
to the institution two hundred acres of good
limestsne 'land as an inducement to have it
located in Centre county, and an equal amount
has sincabeenpurchased for the sum of eleven
thousand dollars.
The present means which the board have
and which they expect to realize are as fol
Contributed by citizens of Centro county as an induce
went for present location of the institution, $lO,OOO 00
By State Agricultural Society, 10,000 00
By Legislature at last session, 25,000 00
With these funds the board proceeded first
to the erection of such buildings as were ab
solutely necessary to the enjoyment of the
property, and to laying out the grounds and
planting as extensively as practicable, pre
paratory tikthe commencement of a course of
instruction. • A. convenient farmhouse, a large
barn, corri-diibs, wagon-shed, and other ne
cessary out-buildings have been completed ;
an edifice two hundred and thirty-three feet
in front and five stories high, with wings at
either end, built of limestone, is in a state of
forwardness, and will be completed during
the ensuing summer at a cost of $55,000.
This building is adapted to the accommo
dation of at least two professors, with their
families, and 300 students. No students have
yet been taken, as the progress made in the
building is not sufficiently advanced. It has
been deemed better to - proceed slowly, but
certainly, as a measure of economy. It has
been found that time is necessary in the pre
natation 'of the farm for that profitable in
struction - of practical agriculture which is the
design of the institution to impart.
The resources for the further preparation
of the &nit and completion of the buildings,
the success of which they anti;ipate in the
coming year, are :
A legacy from Hr. E. Cresson $5,000
The appropriation by the Legislature . 25,000
Which is made payable when a like sum is raised
by individuals 25,000
The board have no doubt whatever but that
the individual subscriptions will be forth
coming, from their success thus far. This
subject. of, agriculture has been too much as a science, leaving the tilling of
the soil , to the chances of ignorance,
manufactures have ever received the foster
ing attention of Government. A new era
has begun to dawn, distinguished for patent
reapers, mowers, ploughs, and planters, that
would rather astonish the old Agricolas ; and
-why may not equal improvements be mede in
growing the crops, when a knowledge of soils,
sub-soils, and composts is more generally dif
fused ?
The Voice of Illinois
of public notice, a large and enthusiastic
meeting of members of the Democratic party
from various. parts of the State, assembled in
the hall of the House of Representatives, at
Springfield, on Wednesday evening, Jan. 13th,
Col:: McClernand, from the committee on
resoldtions, reported and read the following :
Whereas, There appears to be a difference
of opinion as to the true intent and meaning
of the Kansas-Nebraska act, and as to the
application of the principles of that act to the
existing form of the Kansas question, there
fore :
Resolved ; That we reiterate, as the bond of
union between the national Democracy, the
platform of the party adopted at Cincinnati
by their accredited representatives, and rec
osnisti the same as the authoritative exposi
tion of its principles.
Resolved, That the Cincinnati platform, and
the true intent and meaning thereof, binds
the Democracy of the Union to guaranty to
the people of each Territory of the United
States the right of fully ratifying, by the
majority vote cf such Territory, each and ev
ery provision of the Constitution under which
.apply for admission into the Federal
Resolved, That it would be equally contrary
to reason and justice, that in a seeming an
tagonism of form and substance, the latter
should be sacrificed to the former, or that the
essential rights and liberties of the people
should . be made to yield to the authority of a
mere technical rule—and, therefore; we as
Democrats insist, that any act to be passed
by Congress, unconditionally admitting Kan
sas as a State into the Union under the Le
compton Coastitution, upon the ground of an
implied assent on the part of the people of
that Territory to that Constitution, contrary
to the: fact, would be an unwarranted and un
righteous assumption of power on the part of
Congress, and an unjust and oppressive exer
cise of the same, particularly towards the
people of Kansas.
Resolved, That when a Territory forms a
Constitution without au enabling act by Con
gress, and asks for admission under the same,
such"applicatkm should be regarded as a pe
tition for the redress of grievances ; and to
receive a 'State into the Union under a Con
stitution' thus formed, in opposition to the
knoWn wishes of the majority of the citizens
of such Territory, 'is a violation of the prin
ciples of popular sovereignty as declared in
the Kansas-Nebraska act.
Resolved, That the Illinois Democracy con
sider that-the foregoing principles have ever
constituted a vital and essential portion of the
acknOwledged political creed of the Demo
cratic party . of the United States ; that they
combatted for and triumphed with them in
the last Presidential election; that they stand
pledged to maintain them before the country,
and' lhat they cannot and will not disavow
- -
Reiolved, That the Democracy of Illinois
fully endorse the positions taken by the Ron.
Stephen A. Douglas, our distinguished Sena
tor, in the recent debates in the Senate of the
United . States in support and vindication of
the -faregoing principles I and propositions ;
that-they approve his course, and arc proud
of the ability • with which he has sustained
himself as a faithful exponent of the princi
ples of the National Democracy.
Colonel J. A. McClerna.nd, Colonel Robert
Blackwell, Hon: 0. B. Ficklin; Hon. C. L.
Higbee, 3. L. McConnell, severally addressed
the-Meeting in lucid and eloquent speeches,
in support of the resolutions, which were re
peatedly interrupted Eby the enthusiastic
cheers of the assembled multitude pf Demo
crats present: •
The question on the adoption of the resolu
tions being.then put .by the president, they
were adopted unanimously.
The King of Delhi's Mode of Execution.
The following has been communicated to
the Poona Observer: It appears from a jour
nal of a European traveller ; that a new and
fearful mode of execution has been adopted
by the King of Delhi. The instrument and
process are thus described: A box, each
side of which is fifteen feet square, is con
structed of timber eighteen inches thick,
dove-tailed together; and braced with iron
rods. The outside of the bottom of the box
is covered with a plate of beaten iron, one
inch in thickness. The interior is filled with
perfect cubes of granite, weighing in the ag
gregate several thousand tons. A machine
is erected after the manner of an ordinary
pile-driver, but of course, on an enormous
scale, and of tremendous strength. The mass
is raised by powerful machinery cast in Bir
mingham for the express purpose, though it
is to be presumed that the machinist by
whom it was furnished had no idea of the
horrid purpose for which it was intended.—
The human victim is placed upon a block of
granite, of a corresponding surface, buried
in the earth immediately beneath the enor
mous mass, and covered with a plate of iron.
At a signal given by the vicramadack the ex
ecutioner touches a spring, the mass falls,
and the victim, crushed at once, is suddenly
annihilated, and spread out like a sheet of
pasteboard! The huge weight being again
raised, the flattened body is withdrawn and
dried in the sun. When completely prepared
it is hung over the wall of a public building,
there to serve as a warning to the multitude.

A Mad Bult—Exciting Chase.
On Monday morning a bull, which had
been taken to a .slaughter-house in Stanton
street, broke loose and rushed into the street.
It was pursued to the corner of Chrystie and
llester streets, where a large number of boys
took chase after the animal, which ran bel
lowing through Chrystie and Division streets
into East Broadway. As he passed the Se
venth Ward station house, with a whole
crowd in pursuit, the captain of police order
ed five officers to follow the bull, which they
did, and were led on a most exciting chase.
On he ran, down Pike stieet, into South, and
thence through Gouverneur into Grand street.
The officers fired at the animal with their re
volvers as he ran, which only had the effect
to infuriate him ; everywhere the streets were
instantly cleared, as the bull a,ppered tearing
along almost at railroad speed. At the foot
of Rivington street the bull ran into the cor
poration yard. Here he received a volley of
stones and bullets, when he clambered up a
pile of stones and scaled a fence eight feet
high. He then ran through Goerek street
into a tree-nail yard, in Third street. Here
a rope, which he carried round his horns, was
made fast to a post, and another and furious
onset was made upon the poor brute. He
was struck on the head with mauls and clubs,
stabbed with knives on the side and neck,
and pistol shots were discharged into his
body. The only - effect of all this appeared to
be to enrage him. For nearly twenty minutes
he kept his enemies at bay, dodging the blows
of the uplifted maul and club. Finally, he
was assaulted with a Upad-axe ; but it was
not until his head was literally chopped half
off that he was finally killed.—N. Y. Times.

the Dublin papers thus raises a shout of
grateful exultation over the present condition
of Ireland :
"We can hardly be grateful enough for the
high position our own Ireland holds. Here
no banks have stopped payments—nay, by
wisely assisting trade, they are paying un
heard of dividends. No manufacturing es
tablishments have failed, throwing out of em
ployment numerous hands. The storm reach
ed us and passed over, leaving us unscathed.
Possibly as we are deprived of the profits re
sulting from gigantic factories, so also are we
free from their fluctuations. Probably the
terrible lessons which our country learned at
so fearful a price in former visitations
wrought their effect, and we are wiser and
better men. Thanks be to God, our harvests
were great. What trade we have is steady;
our people have abundant work, the necessa
ries of life are cheap. We are informed that
thousands of our peasantry who left our fam
ine stricken land. years ago, are threatening to
return. Let them come; they will be wel
comed. We shall find work for all. Glad,
only too glad shall we be if, in the western
land they sought and now fly from, they have
learned industry and prudence."
A DESPERATE Prusosnu—At York, Pa., on
Monday, four persons were arrested on a
charge of creating a. disturbance. One of them,
named Fisher, made a desperate resistance,
and assaulted High Constable Ruby and sev
eral citizens with a long-bladed knife, but
without doing them any injury. The York
Republican says :
It was with much difficulty that he was
tied, thrown into a wagon and conveyed to
jail. When he arrived there ho managed to
get a bar of iron, with wheh he assaulted one
of the keepers, injuring him somewhat.
When in the cell he tore off the spiggot of
the hydrant, which he threw with much force
at those outside, who narrowly escaped feel
ing its weight. He then broke up some of
the wood work inside, with which he made a
club, and swore he would knock out the
brains of any persons who should enter the
cell. His conduct was such that the sheriff
ordered him to be shot, and two balls were
fired at him, one of which grazed one leg,
and the other ball took effect in the other leg.
He then submitted—the ball was extracted,
when he asked to eee it, and swallowed it im

$l5, $2O, $25, $3O, $5O, $75, $lOO, $2OO, and $5OO. Don't
cry out, "Humbug'. Lottery !" It's no such thing. The
Pencils are sold at their cash value, and all the profits over
the first cost are thrown into the gifts, which actually cost
the purchaser nothing. The prizes aro distributed on a
simple plan of drawing, which would take too much room
to explain, but which has never failed to give complete
satisfaction. We have drawn and sent to purchasers IS3
gold watches of various prices, 7.1 purses of gold dollars,
2.38 gold lockets, 850 gold chains, and a corresponding
number of other prizes, within two months.
but every purchaser draws a prize worth V. certain, and it
stands thousands of chances to be a higher figure.
We want a good agent in every neighborhood through
out the country, to solicit purchasers, and any agent, to
be successful, must have a Pencil and prize to exhibit.—
'We pay agents cash for each purchaser he obtains, and
the first person in any neighborhood who applies for a
Pencil and gift, will receive the agency for that locality.—
Should an agent obtain a valuable prize to exhibit with
his Pencil, he would have little difficulty in obtaining
scores of purchasers, and making it a paying business.
We ask nobody to send their money till they I:now what
prize they draw. Any person wishing to try their luck,
can first send us their name and address, and we will make
their drawing and inform them by return mail what prize
they drew, when they can send on and take the Pencil and
prize, or not, whichever they choose. We give this privi
lege only once to a purchaser. After the first drawing, ev

drawing. Address C. B. TODD & CO..

The union of Emerson's Magazine and Putnam's Monthly
has given to the consolidated work a circulation second to
but one similar publication in the country, and has secur
ed for it a combination of literary and artistic talent prob
ably unrivaled by any other Magazine in the world. Du
ring the first month, the sale in the trade and demand from
subscribers exceeded 90,000 copies, and the numbers al
ready issued of the consolidated work are universally cou
ceded to have surpassed, in the richness of their literary
contents, and the beauty and profuseness of their pictorial
illustrations, any magazine ever before issued from the
American press. Encouraged by these evidences of favor,
the publishers have determined to commence tho new vol
ume in January with still additional attractions, and to
offer such inducements to subscribers as cannot fail to
Place it, in circulation, at the head of American magazines.
With this view they now announce the following splendid
programme. They have purchased that superb and costly
steel-plate engraving.
and will present it to every three-dollar subscriber for the
year 1858. It was engraved at a cost of over ~ `.5,000, by
the celebrated A. L. Dick, from the original (...)f Raphael
Morghen, after Leonardo Da Vinci. and is the largest steel
plate engraving ever executed in this country, being three
times the size of the ordinary three-dollar engravings.
The first impressions of this engraving are held at ten
dollars, and it was the intention of the artist that none or
the engravings should ever be offered for a less sum than
five dollars, being richly worth that amount. Thus every
three-dollar subscriber will receive the Magazine one year
—cheap at three dollars--and this splendid engraving,
richly worth $5; thus getting for $3 the value of $B.
We shall commence striking off the engravings immedi
ately, yet it can hardly be expected that impressions of so
large a plate can be taken as fast as they will be called
for by subscribers. We shall, therefore, furnish them in
the order in which subscriptions are received. Those who
desire to obtain their engravings early, and from the first
impressions, should send in their subscriptions without
delay. The engraving can be scut on rollers, by mail, or
in any other manner, as subscribers shall order.
In addition to the superb engraving of " The Last Sup
per," which w ill he presented to every three-dollar sub
scriber for 185 S, the publishers have completed arrange
ments for the distribution, on the 25th of December, 1808,
of a series of splendid works of art, consisting of ono hun
dred rich and rare Oil Paintings, valued at from $lOO to
$l,OOO each. Also 2,000 magnificent Steel-Plate Engra
vings, worth from three to five dollars each, and 1,000
choice Holiday Books, worth from one to five dollars each,
making, in all, over three thousand gifts, worth twenty
thousand dollars.
Inclose $3 to the publishers and son will commence re
ceiving the Magazine by return mail. Yon will also re
ceive with the first copy a numbered subscription receipt
entitling you to the engraving of
and a chance to draw one of these "three thousand prizes."
Ist. Because its literary contents will, during the year,
embrace contributions from over one hundred different
writers and thinkers, numbering among therh the most
distinguished of American authors.
2d. Because its editorial departments, "Our Sineo,"
"Our Window," and "Our Olio," will each be conducted
by au able editor—and it will surpass, in the variety and
richness of its editorial contents any other magazine.
3d. Because it will contain, during the year, nearly six
hundred original pictorial illustrations from designs by the
first American artists.
4th. Because for the sum of $3 you will receive this
splendid monthly, more richly worth that sum than any
other magazine, and the superb engraving of," The Last
Supper," worth $5.
sth. Because you will be very likely to draw ono of the
three thousand prizes to be distributed on the 25th day of
December, 1558—perhaps one that is worth $l.OOO.
Notwithstanding that these extraordinary inducements
can hardly fail to accomplish the object of the publishers
without further efforts, yet they have determined to con
tinue through the year,
To any person who will get up a club of twenty-four sub
scribers, either at one or more post offices, we will present
a splendid Library, consisting of over Forty Large Bound
Volumes, embracino• ' the must popular works in the mar
ket. The club maybe formed at the club price, $2 a year,
without the engraving,Dr at the full price,s3, with the
Last Supper to each subscriber . List and dscription of
the Library, and specimen copy of ,the Magazine, will be
forwarded on receipt of 25 cents. Over 200 Libraries, or
8,000 volumes,l have already been distributed in accordance
with this offer, and we should be glad of an opportunity to
furnish a Library to every school teacher, or to some one
of every post °Rice in the country.
The success which our agents are meeting with is almost
astonishing. Among the many evidences of this fact, we
are permitted to publish the following :

This company has been organized with the above capital
for the purpose of supplying the. demand for the
and other improved machinery.
They have purchased the entire machinely business here
tofore carried on by L M. Emerson S. Co., alsd the Mont
gomery Works at Yonkers, on the Hudson, near this city,
and with the experience and facilities combined in its or
ganization are prepared to furnish machinery of all kinds
at mere liberal rates, than has ever been offered at any
other establishment.
The Combinatiim Saw-Mill was patented October, 1836,
and is now generally acknowledged to be the cheapest, and
most practical, and efficient lumber manufacturing ma
chine in the world. A number of them are in successful
operation in different sections of the country, Canada,
Cuba, and South America, and wherever their merits have
been tested they are being adopted, by lumber manufactu
rers in preference to all other mills.
The following letter expresses the general opinion of
those who are using the Combination Mill :
MESSRS. EgErtsox & Co.—Gentlemen: I have tried the
saw-mill purchases of you, and will say that it performs
weli, and more than meets my expectations. I am well
pleased With its performance. I set it upon asmall stream
that afforded constant water abort as thick as my little
f.nger, which was much more than sufficient to supply the
boiler. We are able to cut 3.000 feet of beautiful lumber
in 12 hours; with something less than one cord of wood.—
It is the very thing we have so much needed in our county
fora; long time. With a little trouble and expense, We are
able to move it from five to ten miles per day, and set it up
in the heart of the timber, Which saves the great burden
of hauling the logs a long distance to the mill.
Yours respectfully, JESSE KERR, Jr.,
Louisville, Tennessee.

Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Larry ugittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs. by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the I:mutton Hospital,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to got at the disease in the direct manner.—
medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon. which
Inhalation is based. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs are dis
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lunge. Medicines are antidotes to clii.ease and should
be applied to the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs,
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells, and
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering Medicines. The reason that Consuinptiom
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should only act Con
stitutionally' expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unotrending stomach, whilst thu foul ulcers
within the lunge were unmolested.' Inhalation brings
the medicine in direct contact with the disease, without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its appliCation is
SO simple, that it can be employed by thu youngest infant
or feeblest invalid. It does nut derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
Other Diseases Treata—lu relation to the following dis
eases, either hen complicated with lung affections or ex
isting alone, I also invite consultation, I usually find them
promptly curable.
Pr - olapsus and all other forms of Female Complaints, Ir
reguhirities and Weakness.
Palpitation and all other forms of Heart Disease, Liver
