Great Farming Implement Trial at Aubnrn,
AUBURN, July 11. —The farm of W.
S Leach, upon which the mowers are
being tried, is one of tne richest among
the rich lands of Cayuga county. It
contains 2431 acres and 243 acres of
tillable land, and all ot it workable in
a few hours after a heavy rain. It is
valued at SIOO an acre, the buildings
adding very little to the value. The
clover field, in which the mowers are
now at work, has a very heavy growth
—lodged flat It is also studded with
that tall white blossom weed known
as 'flea bane.' 'small daisy,' etc. The
ground is smooth and pretty level, but
owing to the condition of the crop,
which has been reserved a week or
more beyond its proper time, it is in a
had condition lor mowing.
The Buckeye machine, by Adrianc-e,
Piatt & Co., No 1. The Eureka, by J.
D. Wilbur, No. 2. The American Mow
er. W. H. Halliday, No. 3. The Kir
by, D. M. Osborn k Co., No. 4. These
worked together. No 4 coming out
ahead, cutting its acre in 40 minutes,
cutting a swath 4 ft. 6 In , Mr. Osborn
himself driving an excellent steady
pair of horses. No. 2 cutting (5 ft.
driven by the inventor, would have
finished first but tor the accident of a
breakage. This machine is unlike any
other in use. the cutter bar being di
rectly in front of the wheels.
No. 1. driven by John P Adriance.
cutting 4 ft. 1 in., was the next out,
having made no stops, and backing
for a clog only once slightly, finishing
in 54 minutes.
No 3 slightly exceeded the limited
time of one hour for each acre. All
the work was about equally well done,
and considering the character ot the
stuff cut, wa> remarkably well done.
After dinner lour other Nos. were
called .- Nus. 5 and fi Cayuga Chief ma
chines, of C. Wheeler, Jr. No. 7 not
being ready, ks place was taken by the
same Kirby machine ihat worked be
fore driven by the proprietor. No. 8
the same Buckeye as before.
I will here remark that several ma
chines entered in duplicate numbers,
a-"single mowers." "combined mower
and reaper," and " self-raking," so that
the work of four machines may actual
lv he done bv one.
Of the quality of the work of all, I
have heard but one opinion. All are
competent, even new as they are, to
mow, each its acre, in one hour, with
out heating the journals or fatiguing
the horses. It is certainly competent
for any farmer to mow ten acres of
tangled clover in a day; and in the
case of the Kirby machine it is demon
strated that it can he operated by a
•'cheap hand," as the man who work
ed it to day only has an income of 540,-
000 a year. At art}- rate it shows that
such a man is wiliiog to labor in be
half of the farmer, in the great work
of improving machinery to facilitate
In the second trial the Kirby, driv
• n by L>. M. Osborn, finished his acre
first, coming out in 40 minutes—the
others but little behind.
The third trial ot four machines was
by the Columbian Junior Mower,
American Agricultural Works, New
York ; the Harvest Clipper, R. Dutton.
Newport, R I ; the Yankee Mower,
Dow A Fowler, and an Iron Mower,
Ohio and Buckeyo combined, Dodge
Of these the first out was the Yan
kee Mower, in 48 minutes, with pretty
severe labor of horses; tl.e Harvest!
'dipper next, working much easier.
Like the others, these axe all excel
lent machines. I leave it to the Com
rnittee to say which is best. It is
claimed for the Yankee Machine that
it is very simple in construction and
remarkably flexible, working with
ease over rough surface. This is true,
but we do not see how it can claim any
great advantage over several others.
The Harvest Clipper is one of the
most compactly constructed machines
in the whole exhibition, and has some
features that must entitle it to a high
place among its competitors. For in
stance, all its gearings aDd shafts are
so covered that they are not likely to
become wound with grass, nor to en
dauger those who are about the ma
chine when it is in operation.
So tar, the ditference in time of cut
ting an acre between the fastest and
slowest machine, is about twenty min
utes L'nder some other circumstan
ces this difference might not appear so
strong, and it might appear to the
farmer that the slowest machine was
an easy working one, and would there
fore And favor. But wo be to its pop
uiarity if it proves both slow and hard
upon the team.
JULY 12 —At eleven o'clock there
was no beginning of the Dynamometer
trial, and so I abandoned that part of
the field for the other, when I found
the following machines at work : The
Eagle combined machine of E F Har
rington, Rondout, N. Y., ot Walter A.
Wood s combined machines; and one
of Osborne's one horse Ivirby machines.
This machine cuts its acre in 73 min
utes. The Hubbard mower which was
to have gone in on this trial, met with
an accident and had to haul off for re
While the trial was in progress, the
people were giving their attention to
the operations of two of Bullard's Hay
Tedders, many of them never having
seen one in operation before They
do the work of thinning hay most ef
fectually, but with hard work for one
horse. The two-horse machines work
A number of rakes were also at work;
several were toothed; one of thera
newly patented by S. R. Nye. Barre,
Massachusetts, shows some excellent
improvements in the convenience of
working. The wooden revolving rake
mounted upon wheels, is a decided
improvement upon the original.
The raking of the lots mowed, de
veloped the fact that all were about
equally well mowed, except by the
Eureka's; that by the Buckeye was
generally spoken of with admiration,
yet the other lots were all done so
well, that no one eonld object to the
quality of the work, nor the time in
which it was accomplished. I could
not help thinking that the Wood ma
chine tried this morning was very hard
to beat in every respect.
At the second bout the machines
tried were two of C. Wheeler's Auburn
machines; one of Osborn's Kirby ma
chines: and one of Aultman, Miller &
Go's Ohio and Buckeye combined.—
The two Wheeler machines cut their
acre each, in 48 and 49 minutes; the
other two were a trifle longer, and all
did their work perfectly.
Mr. Miller, the inventor of the origi
nal Buckeye, was present, and felt
justly proud of the continued success
of bis invention for more than eight
years. Some of his strongest compet
itors at the first start, have been long
since laid upon the shelf I believe
the only one that was at the Syracuse
trial in competition with the Buckeye,
that still" holds its place, is the Kirby
machine. McCormick, even, has been
obliged so far to yield to the popular
requirement, as to mount h<s machine
like the Buckeye upon two wheels.

There are few of us in this world
who have attained to years of maturi
ty, who can look back upon the past
without calling up some sorrowful in
cidents in our history of a deeply pain
ful character, and which are calculated
to throw a gloom and a sadness over
our hours of pleasure and enjoyment.
Life is but a checkered scene, a thea
tre ot great doubt and uncertainty, and
although the earth may be fair and the
skies clear above us. clouds will, at
times, settle upon tin and the
burdens of disappointment weigh heav
ily upon us. No position which we
can gain in life, can bring to us sub
stantial happiness. Wealth has its
cares, and poverty its numberless af
flictions, and even mediocracy, the
most enviable ot ali conditions, fre
quently embittered by its losses and
weighed down by its sorrows and af
flictions There are none who are ex
empt from the vicissitudes which beset
us here, or can claim an immunity
front the changes which come and go
like clouds upon our pathway, yet iiv

ignore. The purest amongst us will
And in the records of his past life, dark
spots which soil their pages, and which
they would cheerfully obliterate, were
it in their power. The infirmities ot
our nature are pictured upon every
leal, and we shrink from their contem
plation, because the}- furnish proof of
our folly and evidence of our condem
nation. After we have done our best
in this world, there is much remains
undone, for the omission of which we
will be held responsible according to
the strict rules of justice, tempered, it
| is to be hoped, in our case, with the
1 intervention of mercy. A conscience
fully approved before God and man is
a rarity seldom, if ever, met with uere.
. Errors will be forgiven and pardon ob
tained when pieaded for, yet the sting
of' remorse is, at times, too deeply
planted in the human heart ever to be
| successfully eradicated.
We were, some years ago, acquaint
ed with an aged clergyman who had
been a faithful minister of the Cross
lor over fifty years, a devout follower
of his Divine Master, and whose influ
ence and example for good had been
widely felt in his neighborhood for
more than half a century, who at one
time told us that he believed firmly
that all the sins he had committed
: had been forgiven, but there was on*
I act of his life which was so fixed in his
ILSTOLSSf&WSSd SLaEKFffiBS? IPIiSySSo
memory that he could not rid his mind
of its painful recollection. When a boy
he had thrown a stone at his mother
because she refused to indulge him in
some childish fancy, and although she
had died when he was but a youth, In*
could never forget the circumstance.
It followed a into the pulpit, in the
crowded a- \ at the family altar,
at home and abroad, -'*> ping and wa
king, for even his dreams r.t times
were disturbed by its reproachful pres
ence. Children might take warning
from this aged man's experience, and
do nothing to wound the feelings of
their mother, the first and best friend
they will ever meet in this world.
What Whisky Does.
It meets many a luck lee traveler on
the great turnpike of life, and rol s
him of character and friends. It in
trudes into happy families, saps the
foundation of their peace, and drives
them homeless, wretched and forlorn,
to subsist on the cold charity of an
unfeeling world. It meets a rnechan
ie and causes him to neglect his busi
ness, drives away his customers, and
reduces him to a state of wretched
ness and misery. It meets a tanner,
and soon briars cover the face of his
farm, his lences are broken down, bis
habitation becomes leaky, and the
windows stuffed with rags. Finally it
sells his farm, and whisky sellers
pocket the money, while the heart
broken and sickly wife, with her little
children arour.d her crying for bread,
is turned out of doors. But where is
that once thrifty farmer, kind and af
fectionate father? Yonder in the
street, a miserable wretch, wandering
from doggery to doggery pawning b;s
coat for whisky. And the vampires
who hide themselves behind screens
and blinds, are willing to take the last
cent and then kick their miserable
victim into the street because he has
no more money.
Bayard Taylor in Colorado.
Bayard Taylor is out in the 'Far
West.' In writing to the Tribune oi
Denver, Colorado, he says ;
First, let me say that the views
which have appeaYed in the illustrated
papers are simply caricatures. In
stead of being a cluster of' houses on a
flat plain, with a range of clumsy
mountains in the distance and Pike's
Peak standing alone in the centre
thereof, it is built upon a gradual slope,
rising eastward from the junction of
Cherry Creek with the Platte. It is
as well built as any town of equal size
in the Mississippi Valley. The Meth
odist Church and Seminary, the Banks,
and principal busiuess houses, soiidiy
constructed of brick (the former edi
tice with considerable architectural
beauty,) give the place an air of per
manence, very surprising to one who
bus just arrived lroic the East. Be
yond the Platte the laud rises with a
gentle, gradual slope, to the base of the
Rocky Mountains, 12 miles distant, and
there is no pari of the town bich
does not aflord a view of the great
range. Long's Peak, more than 15,000
feet in height, just tilis the vista of the
principal business street. Pike's Peak
is far to the left, overlooking to the
head of the great Cherry Creek Val
Although business of ali kinds is
extraordinary dull at present, and the
people are therefore as much dispirited
as Colorado nature will admit, Denver
seems to me to have a very brisk and
lively air. A number of f-übstantial
buildings are going up, there is con
stant movement in the streets, the
hotels are crowded, and the people
one meets are brimfull of cheerful en
ergy. The stores and ware houses
are thoroughly stocked, and prices are
lower than one would expect, eousid
ering the tedious and expensive iand
*; transportation. At the Pacific Hotel
you pay $4 per day—no more than in
New York, and have an equally good
; table. There may not be such an ex
, cessive bill of fare, but I could distin
, guish no difference in the cooking.—
Vegetables in the market are pienty
and cheap, and appear to be of remark

I was interested in noticing how
attached the inhabitants are to the
place. Nearly one who had re
cently been East seemed rejoiced to
return. Even the ladies forget tho
greater luxuries and refinements of the
Atlantic coast,when they see the Kocky
Mountains once more The people
look upon this Alpine view as one of
the properties of the town. Every
street opens one direction, at
least,) upon it; and the evening drives
along the Platte or over the flowering
ridges become as beautiful as any in
the world, when the long line of snowy
peaks flash down a brighter gold than
ever was unpacked from their veins.
There are no manufactories as yet,
except a brick yard and two flour milis
—the latter driven by waterpower. A
good gray building stone is found
about tour mi'es off. The timber is all
brought from the mountains, which, I
fear, are in a fair way to become dis
forested. Coal, however, is coming
into general use as fuel, several mines
having already been opened in the
neigh berboood. It resembles the
brown coal of Germany, burns freely,
and it is said to produce a great deal
of gas. General Pierce, the Surveyor
i General, considers the coal bed in the
Kocky Mountains one of the largest in

Mr Genio C. Scott, an old sports
man and contributor to Wilkes' Spirit
of the Times, writes to that Journal:
The enterprise of gentlemen of the
metropolis causes them to monopolize
the salmon rivers of the North as well
as the striped fisheries of the East, and
the trout waters of the middle and
eastern States. Already are the sal
mon rivers in New Brunswick parcell
ed out. as in Scotland and Ireland, at
so much a rod. 1 have just received a
letter Irum the lessee of the famous
Nepisiquit river, near Bathurst. by
which I am informed that he and five
New Yorkers have the whole river
this year, with the stipulation that
only six rods are to be used. Other
waters, away on to New Fouudiand
and those of Lower Canada and Lab
rador, which empty into the St. Law
rence, are chiefly hired by gentlemen
of New York.
It is now necessary for good salmon
angling Jo go as far as Labrador.—
There is a prospect that the numerous
salmon rivei-s on the island of Anta
costi will soon be opened to competi
tion. in which case the steamers to ply
this season between the coast of Lab
rador and the terminus of a railroad
in New Brunswick will render all
these northern fisheries much more
accessible to New Yorkers than they
art at present; and instead of making
the rounds to the watering placeß witE
