Smithfield, Nov, 23, 1872
MR. EDITOR!: In four issue of the
3d ult., appears an article of W. W.
Corbin, of Colorado, entitled
" What I Know about (Colorado)
Farming." His article needs some
qualification, and with your permis
uion, I propose to-touch it lightly.
He says : "Of course, the first
thing essential, is land well fenced "
This may, or may not be true, ac
cording to circumstances. In many,
of our counties no fence imased. The
law provides for herdin( or other-
Wise takind care of stock so as' to
render fences wholly useless ; .and
Mr. C. could find farms in some of
those counties cultivated in -corn,
that would make him think he was
seriously mistaken relative to the
culture of that staple in this coun
Now a small farm of say'l6o acres
is not large enough to keep stock on
to any extent, and those who have
but that sort of farm would need to
fence where fence is the law; but if a
farmer had two or three sections, as
many do, and several thousand head
of stock, he could much better afford
to herd his stock than fence his laid,
except a small - portion for orchard.
He says again : " The land worth
occupying is nearly all taken—i. e.,
good land." This, to some extent,
is true. All the niost desirable locali-i
_ties near town or market, are taken.
But some, as fine as can be found
anywhere, yet rernain at lowest
prices; but as a general thing rail
road lands would be Mostdesirable
at present, which can be had at low
figures and easy terms. •
His next trouble is building: "lhe
expense of building is very great.
Most of the lumber being brought
from some of the Stafes." This is an
error no Coloradoan has any shadow
of right to fall into, ,ftud I can only
account for it by presuming- your
correspondent has been in the Terri
' tory but a short time, and made but
little investigation into such matters.
While it is tine that ranch hithber
comes to our country from Chicago
and St. Lunis—mostly from the for
mer place—it does not by any Means
follow that building should be at
tended with great expense. ',Many
'fine houses are standing in Colorado
with not au inch of Eastern lumber,
but roost builders now use more qr
less of thelatter kind, for the reason
that it is cheaper. First-class Chica
go siding, ready forllaying, can be
had at $3O per thou Sand. Flooring
at $4O p r thousand. Mouldings,
sash, (173er , blinds, etc., manufactur
ed East,- • n 'be had hero for• less
than the s rue could •be manufactur
ed in the, euntry. But all this does
not make' building very expensive.
$24 to -$3O buy the rough lumber, and
brick may be bad every year at $7 to
$t per thousand, and carpenters at
from $3 to $5 per day,and they board
themselves. -
The next, irrigation, is in my opin
ion, the worst disadvantage here."
Now, instead of a hindrance, this is
one of the many things which makes
Colorado farming pleasant and profi
tabl. A 160 acre farin can be so ar
ranged that any ordinary. Mexican
can irrigate it-in three days at most,
aud r the preparation is attended with
but little expense. The head ditch or
canal - is so arranged as to be a sort
of feeder to the land, and this 'is al
most invariably a surface ditch, made
by plow and scraper, or shovel. Then
the laud cultivated iii small grain or
vegetables, is plowed at right'angles;
Or nearly FiO with this ditch, and the
-finishing or dead furrows with small
grain, etc., answers for the irrigating
ditch; and of course the rows of corn
or vegetables will carry the -water,
and th a is attended with no expense,
and the farmer is never at loss to
know what to do and how to do it
when his crop needs water, and be
is pot troubled with rain, mud, grain
" growing,"'etc. i etc., as in many in
stances in the 'States.
- It must be understood that this
county is eminently calculated for
this same process of irrigation. The
streams are all high at the time the
water is needed, -say from June to
Angina inclusive. ' Then again, 'tome

with no irrigation it all. This is not
general, and depends upon location.
The mountains produce',potatoes and
turnips of the very finest quality, and
this from 8,000 to 10,000 feet above
tide water.
I am a professional gent, and yet
have produced cabbage to weigh 60
lbs. each, and beets over 30 ; oats,,
100 bushels to the acre; to weigh
rom 40 to 50 lbs. to the= bushel
I have been in the Territory for
thirteen years, and am tolerably well
acquainted with the country and, its
resources and advantages, as well as
its disadvantages. Few have had
opportunity to know these things
better, and if your correspondent C.,
will attend, I will take bim free of
charge from Denver in any direction
`where the country is settled, and
,show him the first one bundred farm
ers consecutively, who have made
money, and there will not be one, or,
to exceed one, who would be willing
to exchange his farm for any he
knows of East.
Mr. C. sayEi labor is higher than in
the East This perhaps is true; but
why does labor command more than
it is worth ? Such a state of affairs
could no where exist for any length
of time. And I apprehend labor can
be had here as low as in any State
which is in a prosperous condition,
and there were no 'such wages paid
here as the farmers had to submit to
in lowa the past season, say $4 per
One reason why wages fk farm la
bor, especially harvesting , t is not so
high in this\as in Eastern countries,
is, here where we irrigate and rain is
the exception, the work does not
drive as it does where the weather
is " catching." The farmer can cal
culate to a day how long it will take
him to do any certain piece of work,
etc. C. Thinks farming does not pay
here any better, if as well, as it does
in. the States, and tells you the coun-
try does jot produce enough for its
own consumption, etc. Now what
course of logic will induce the "think
ing man " to believe farming will not
pay where crops can be raised early
and of a better quality. than in a
country five hundred miles distant.
He says the facilities are such now
that the Colorado farmer bust com
pete with the States, etc. Granted;
and when it is understoolsr(as is the
fact) that one hundred dollarie worth
of anything can be, and is, produced
in Colorado as cheap 'as in Kansas,
lowa, Illinois,. or any other State,
what hinders farming to flourish'
against equal chances in a distant
country, where freight and two , pro
fits must be paid as against the sim
ple production here:
Bat I fear this note may be tedi
ous, and will close with a word or
two nore. Our country abounds in
gold, silver, iron, copper, lead, coal,
salt, soda, etc., and is ono of-the best,
if not the best, grazifig countries on
the earth. I venture the assertion
that millions of stock can be fed and
fattened 'ready for the butcher, in
Colorado, , all times of the year, at an
expense of ten per cent. on what it
can be done for in any State, except.
Texrs, - and at much, less rates, and
better by far, than can be .done even
in Texas. ,
This is not confined to one season,
or to any particular season. Febru
ary is as good a month to kill fat
beef from the grass alone, as any in
the year. And many,thortiand herd
of stock ranged over 'the plains last
winter, when it was considered the
hardest ever known in this region,
with no bare r not even a herder; and
the per cent. of loss was away• below
that of Kansas, or any feeding State,
where six months at least cattle were
Batter is never worth less than 35
cents per lb. here, and often brings
45 to 50 ; and with the facilities for
f-eding or doing without, who could,
not man some nieney at that ? And
where we °can ship fat cattle to New
York City, and compete successfully
'with States 2,000 miles nearer ,mar
ket, who will think for a momentthat
stock-raising will ever be over done
so long as millions of litres of land
lie inviting the enterprise and indus
try of the energetic pioneer.
I would be glad to say more on
these subjects, but know your valua
ble space cannot be used for such re
marks. I have been much pleased
with your correspondents from lowa
and Nebraska.. They seem to appre
ciate all the advantages of a "large"
new country. There are many diffi
culties to overcome in all new coun
tries : such as absence of first-class
schools and some times churches,
ete.; but if your correspon.lent C. will
come to Denver we will• show him a
better school house than any two in
Bradford would make, and schools of
their class not to be surpassed in the
world. It . must not be, thought for
a moment that no talent finds its
way to this far off Rocky Illonntain
country. Here is, just where you
find it, and our climate rather in
dimes activity in every branch. But
with all our advantages, I would not
advise'any who are well situated in'
the East with 'goOd health, to emi
grate to any other place. Yours as

When the proprietor of a factory,
the director of hundreds of "hands,"
has paid the stipulated wages of the
men, women and children whom he
employs, his technical obligation to
them ceases. Strictly speaking, they
are mere working machines ; he is
an em loying or paying machine.
How th y spend their time ant of his
mills i no iffairL of his. -'Whether
they live comfortably, respectably,
virtnonsly—whether they -starve—he
has-no responsibility. The employ.
ed has no right to look to the em
ployer for anything but the money
which he agreed to pay.
' The reason why a strict adherence
to the letter of this law does not al
waysi work well in practice is that
you never can count on men as ma
d:tines., Calculations always fa il un
less men are reckoned as human,
sensitive, intellectual beings., 'Wheth
er they be rich or poor, learned or
ignorant, they all are tuned to the
same key. The girl in the kitchen is
very unlike her mirtress in the pix
ie!. ; but also very like her. Upon
her presses the same hunger for so
ciety, for mental activity, for moral .
sympathy ; the same love of beauty,
the same affection for kindred, the
same religions sentiment. tAs id wa
ter face answereth to fac,e, so the
heart of man to man; and woman to
woman. ;
It is ignorance of this fact or mis
apprehensien of its bearings which
goes far to prevent the kindly rela
tions which should exist between
employer and employed—between
persons of common nature and com
mon interests. .- If the untutored
Irish woman ; who exults over the .
destruction of her mistress' house
and property should see herself, in
consequence, at once trailed out of
house and home, and reduced to
beggary, she would exult no more.
She would see that her mistress' loss
was her own. Society has become
so compact and complicated that the
loss is too t Minutely subdivided to
attract Bridget's notice; but ,it is
none the less there, and is just as
truly hers as if she bore the whole
brunt of it on her broad shoulders.
When the workman earns his two,
three, and four. dollars a day, and
sees his proprietor gathering in his
tens and perhaps :thousands a year, -
it seems to him an unequal and im
partial distribution of awards. If the
workman could suddenly be set in
the proprietor's place; if heould
see by what painful steps the latter
bad toiled to his . present elevation;
if he coned see what- wide horizons
had to be scannned, *hat - multitudi
nous featureseoniurehended, remem
bered, reproduced; if he could feel
the tumult of anxieties, the nftni
tude of issues, the perplexity tyagen:
cies, the bitterness of mist es, the
responsibility of losses, hewknld see
that the carriages and, carpets of the
proprietor are but a very small part
of his establishment. There is a re
verse side.
It is. impossible for the subordi
nate to see things as the pricipal
lees them. If reicould do ore he
would 'be the principal! But he can
certainly be made to feel that he is
to the proprietUres well as to himself,
something more than a machine.
There are - factory masters who are
not only the employers but the per
sonal friends of. their operatives.
Without trenching upon their. inde
pendence, or their personal. dignty,
the proprietor does occupy toward
them something of the attitude of a
patriarch, - ti sovereign. He provides
commodious and tasteful dwelling'
houses. He beautifies his grounds
snd even his factories. He opens a
reading room and . library, procures
lecturers, visits schools, encourages
concerts, tableaux and dramas. His
family live in no remote sphere, apart
and unapproachable ; but they, as
well as he, dwell among their own,
people. , They cast their lot with the
daily toilers. His wife and- daugh
ters.know the community, their cir
cumstances, their character; their
children. Not with condecension,
but with sympathy, they are always
ready for advice, for aid, . for the
right word in the right - place. There
is on the ether aide no malice, no'
envy of superior position, for it is
seen to be only„a source and centre
of grace. And of all that proprie
tor's investment in stocks and lands,
in railroads and ships, none I vent
ure to say bring him' larger returns
of happiness than the money and
tithe and thought he expends in en

wages he has contracted to pay them.

Many of the exquisite forms given
to those beautifUl specimens of earth
en ware which form the service of
our brUakfast add our dinner tables,
are not capable of being executed in
the lathe of the potter. The embos
sed ornaments on the edges of the
plates, their polygonal shape, the
'gilded surface of many of the vases,
would all be difficult and costly of
execution by the-hand; but they be-,
come easy and uniform in all their
parts, when made .; by pressing the
soft material out of - which they are
formed, into a hard mould. The
care and skill bestowed on the prepa
ration of the mould are amply repaid
by the multitude it produces. In
many of the ;works of the China man
ufactory one part only of the article
is moulded—the ripper_surface of a
plate, for'example, ,whilst the upper
Surface is figured. by the lathe. In .
some instances, the handle, or only
a few ornaments, are moulded, and
the body of the work is turned. An
other, instance which may be cited in
illustration of this iieculiar kind of
mechanical operation, is that of glass
scuds. Is is well known, the process
of engraving upon gems is one re
quiring consiclerabls - time and skill
in order to insure, a perfect result..
The "sears thus In-educed can there
fore never become common. Imita
tions, however, are made of various
degrees of reseinhlance, and these
have extensively ta>ll the place of
the genuine article. The color which
is given to glass, is perhaps the most
successful part of the imitation. A
small cylindrical rod of colored glass
is heated in the flame of a blow pipe,
smtil the ext.remity becomes soft.
The operator'then pinches it skillful
ly between the endS of a pair of nip
pers, which are formed i of brass, and
on one side of which has been carved
in relief the device intended for the
Ornamenting of the seal. 'When the
requisite care has been I tcticen to heat
the glass in a proper manner, and
when the mould has been .well fin
ished, the seals thus produced - are
not bad some of them be
ing extremely, beautiful' in their ap
pearance. They are .produced in
very large quantities and at, a- small
cost. •
