We see it stated in EnglUh papers that
the 3Iarqnis of Twoedale has succeeded
I'crfcetly in working ploughs by steam

culturist, M:. Meche,iu a late article, says,
thcre can be no doubt but that very
fhortly, every agriculturist must use steam
power if he is to stand his ground in-the
race of agricultural .competition. The
want of it is already felt, if not seen, by
tLose who have not the means or the in
clination to use it. The time is approach

could be, they rang for more liquor. A
black waiter came up, but did not bring
the kind asked for. So one of the party
cooly took hold of the poor darkey and

All accounts concur that there is
larire deficiency in the crop of Europe
butwe doubt very much whethor there
will be, in consequence thereof, anything
like the increased demand for train from
this country which is anticipated by many.
W e believe speculation has already car
ried flour beyond the price it can at pros
ent be sustained; it may be that prices e
ventually may reach a higher point than
the present, but, in ttie mean time, tuer
is. in our oninion. dancer of reaction.
Some of our cotemporarios express the
opinion that we have 'not the quantity of
wheat m the country to supply tnc wants
of Eurone. The New York Courier sup
poses the deficiency will be 18,000,000 of
quarters for England alone, while the en
tire production of the country will be but
19.0UU.UUU oi cmarters. or IoU.UUU.UUU
bushels. France, too, the Courier thinks,
will reauire l.oOG.OOO nuartcrs lrom a

"In large sections of Italy not half a
crop is expected. Spain complains of a
deficiency", and Sweden has so poor a bar-
vest inpropect, that sue is now iargei
importing irom tne name.
This, wc apprehend, is rather an csos
crated estimate, and should be set down
as the statement of an alarmist rather
than matter of fact. Private accounts
from England do not corroborate the Con
rief's estimate. It is conceded, however
that there is a deficiency, and that the
wheat crop oi the United fctates will
probably be wanted. There arc various
estimates of what will be the deficiency,
and the following authorities are nuotcd
as shoving the amount: Mark Lane Ex

claimed to be his owner, but as the man
waited on them at supper on Jmuay night,
and at breakfast next morning whn tho
attempt was made, without recognizing
him, we are inclined to doubt it.
Tho soene is described as exciting.
William is full three fourths white, and a
very well made, powerful mulatto. He
was seized irom behind while waiting on
the table at breakfast, by a large strong
man who clasped him round the waist.
Wc are unable to give all the actaus oi

"The announcement is made that anoth
er great cave had been discovered in
Kentucky, and exclamations of surprise
and wonder almost universally accomp
any the statement. Yet there is nothing
strange in the discovery. "Wherever what
is called the mountain limestone exists'
there caves are certain to bo found. Iu
.Kentucky this formation is almost uni
versal, so that the State may be called a
vast catacomb. This is especially true
of the Green River country, which is'
honcy-combed with sink holes and caves.
The popular notion is that the Mammoth
Cave is the only one iu Kentucky. The
truth is, it is the only one explored to
any extent, but that there are other,
though perhaps with no openings to the
upper air, every geologist will admit.
It is not impossible that continuous aven
ues, hundreds of miles long, lead under
whole counties in Kentucky. Almost ev

hollow ground, even when not suspected.

what domes, what bottomless abysses this

can realize who have explored it3 mys
