Agricultural Mating% in Boston.
At a late' , Legislature Aericulturat Meeting,
held at the state House, the subject discusseu
was the " Hearing and Management of Horned
Mr. Buck mtniiiter, editor of the Ploughman,
thought the subject one of much importance,
and that farmers should pay more attention to
breeding suitable cows for the dairy. The
European breeders look mere to fine forms than
to the milking qualities. 'rile imported stock
has not: excelled for milking. although some
crosses had proved very fait milker'•. If the
hest milkers are selected to breed front, the
stock will improve from rear to year.
As evidence of the infertority of the Euro
pean stock, Nit.. Duel:minister quoted the wri
tings of M Colman, the Agricultural Commis
sioner to Europe, who stares that the European
farmers estimate that sixteen quarts of milk will
make one pound of butter.' In this State the
common estimate is ten quarts of milk for a
pound of butter: The great trouhld here is that
we kill our young cattle too indiscriminately,
andlinostlfaimers prefer purchasing to raising.
We should select the best cattle and raise their
Mr. Brooks, of Princeton. stated his method
of raising calves. Ile thought it best for the
calves to nurse until or six weeks old--
then take them away and wean them on a lit
tle milk, or milk.and water. When weaned at
that time calves will be hardy. If they nurse
beyond that time they ivdl lose more flesh on
weaning. W hen weaned, they should be turn
ed into the pasture. Ile estimated the cost Of
raising a calf in this section of the country as
follows : The original cost of calf five weeks
old is eight cents per week ; the second year
12 cents wand the third year 15 cents. At this
rate, the cost of a calf two -years and a half old.
would.. be $l2 82. adding twelve per cent fin in
terest. The calf at that age will bring $22 for
beef. The same relative value in proportion to
the expense of raising, will hold good for sub
Mr. Brooks said that he has four half Ayr
shire two years old heift4s, which g ave this
year ten quarts of milk per day, wh ich milk
yielded ten per cent. of cream, from which a
pound of butter cold he made. He, had also
four native cows. which gave about !he same
proportion of cream to their milk.
For making butter. Mr. Brooks prefers a
cow* which gives frnm,twelve to sixteen quarts
of milk to one that gives more. They ,will
make more butter. He was inclined to think
that the native cattle are the best, though he
thought well of the half breed Ayrshires.
In answer to inquires, Mr. Brooks stated
that he usually cried two calves to be nursed
by - one cow. It is better for them not to have
quite enough than to be over fed. He. gave his
experience in relation to the new method disco
vered by the French cattle breeder,Guinon, by
which It is asserted • ahe 'milking qualities of
cows can be readily ascertained by certain
marks. He said that lie had carefully studied
his book, 2 and had not made ten mistakes id tell
ing within two quarts how much milk a cow
would giv, and within a 'pound or two how
much butter she would yield in a week. He
was fully convinced that there was a great deal
of truth in the plan recommended, and that the
directions are So certain, that no one need buy
a bad cow. Some of the marks noticed by
Guinon lie had himself noticed before reailine
the work. Guinan says the marks are develop.
ed when the calves are six months old, but Mr.
Brooks said he was satisfied that the qualities
of a calf can be predicted with tolerable cqtain
ty, when but four or five weeks olit. The
work in question is very cheap, costing but 37/
cents, 'and should be in the hands of every
Mr. Denny, of Westboro', alluded to the
publication mentioned by Mr. Brooks. He
said he had distributed twenty or.twerity-five
copies among the most experienced breeders of
cattle, and they had informed him that the theory
of the author is correct. He thought that every
one who has or expect to have a cow, should
have a copy of this work.
Mr. French, of Braintree, tho't any one who
would take the book in question, and give it a
thorough perusal, would come to the conclusion
that the author must be right. The diffusion
of this work will perhaps change the character
of the stock throughout the Union. The
knowledge which it imparts, will give purcha
sers more confidence in purchasing, and insure
better stock. Mr. French was of opinion that,
obtaining good milkers from cnws is a mere
.matter of chance, lie did not think that more
than one in live of the calves of imported stock,
however pure- the blood, prove fair takers.—
Breeding cattle for their fattening qnlities is
.In conclusion, Mr. French alluded
to a Militant cow, with no pet:igree, which was
brought from England by the captain of a vessel,
end sold to Mr. Swift. the Mayor of Brooklyn,
which yielded on an average, twenty-seven
quarts of - milk per day for ten months.
Mr. Brooks, in an answer man inquiry, es.
limated - the yield of milk of ordinary cows • t
about five quarts pey.t - day. during the year.
though he had nothing on which to base the
calculation, as he had never measured the yeai ,
/y product. The reason that the English cattle
are no better milkers is because they breed for
shape, size, and fat, rather than for milking
qualitieg. He had rarely known a good milk•
lag cow to be a good fuller. The Ayrshires
Will fatten better than any other. The reason

is because they are crossed in frequently, .
Mr. Nferrimarn,jof Tewskbury, said that he
'did n I believe the production of good cattle de
vended' upon chance, but thought it was based
outfundamental rules. It depends on the blood,
and is probably - owing to the crosses that So

The Hon. Mr. Calhoun, the Presidentof the

The First St. Louis Agricultural Society
The first St. Louts Agricultural Society, as
near as I can discover, was started by three
amateur farmers, who. although they were g -
eil with an abundance of the theory of cultivation,
yet they had •• never set a potato in the field,
or the raismg of a cabbage knew tin more than
a dandy." The old farmers looked upon the
society with much suspicion. and. like all new
projt ets, gave it the •• cold shoulder ;" but they
were, nevertheless, curious to we how the new
system of farming by science would succeed,
The founders stood alone. but they resolved
to go ahead ; so they elected each other to the
different offices, and put trust in time. and their
experiments in farming, to convert members.

New York city, fs.the only real successful remedy for
that dangerous sad distressing complaint—the PILES
-ever offered to an American miblic.
Mark this. It is an INTERNAL REMEDY — and
not an - external application,' and will core every case
of Piles, either bleeding or blind, internal or external,
and probably the only thing that will. There is no
mistake about it. It is a positive cure—speedy and
permanent. It is also a convenient medicine to take,
anti improves the general heal h in a remarkable man
ner. Each box contains twelve doses, at S a dose. It
is very mild in its operation, and may be taken in eases
of the most acute inflammation without danger. All
external applications are in the highest degree disagree
able, inconvenie t and offensive ; and from the very na
ture of thedisertee, inconvenient in their effects. This
medicine attacks the disease at its - source, and remoring
the cause, renders the core certain and permanent.
To NIARiII ED LA D tr.S.—Married ladies are almost in
variably subject to that painful and injurious disease,
the Piles, with consequent inflammation of the stomach,
bowels and spine, weakness of the back, flow of blood

The Electuary contains no mineral medicine, no al
