TILE FARMER'S HIGH SCHOOL
The Board of Trustees of the " Farmers'
High School of Pennsylvania," met in liar
risburg on Tuesday, July 17, 1855, pursuant
to adjournment. Members present Messrs.
James Gowen, Frederick Watts, Win. Jessup
A. L. Elwyn, James Miles, H. N. M'Allister,
John Strohm, A. 0. Mester and Robert C.
On motion of John Strohm ? i'nEntnrvi:
WATTS WSS celled to the chair.
The committee appointed at the last meet
ing to view the several farms proposed to be
donated to the - Farmers' Iligh School, made
the following report, which was ad , pted :
To the Board cf Trustees of the Farmer's
High School of Pcnnsyty mia —Your committe
to whom was assigned the duty':of making an
exhibition of the several points proposed for
the location of " The Farmers' High School
of Pennsylvania," report that they have been
engaged for the last ten days in making such
an examination as will enable there to put the
Board in possession of the facts in relation to
the subject. The first place visited was Cen
tre county, where Gen. James Irvin proposes
to (I , n ite to the Institution either of three
farms of two hundred acre each, which lie
contiguous to each other, at the junction of
Penns and Nittany Valleys, with the pre-emp
tinn light to two hundred acres more adjoin
ing either, at any time within five years. The
land is worth now, sixty dollars an acre.—
This additional quantity, General Irvin pro
poses to lease to the Institution until the ex
piration of the five years, at a reasonable
rent. This point is situate about the centre
of the United Valleys, about twenty miles
north of the Pennsylvania Railroad, at the
Spruce Creek, and eight miles south of Belle
fonte. The land is a tine quality of limestone
sufficiently rolling in .its surface, all cleared
and fenced, but about thirty acres on each
farm ; there is no stream of water upon the
surface of either, hut water is easily obtained
by digging. - The land is comparatively new,
having been all cleared within a few years,
an I the grain now growing upon it dhows the
greatTertility of the soil.
The next point we visited was in Erie coun
ty, where Judge Miles proposes to give to the
Institution tWki, hundred acres of land, which
is.situate about eighteen miles west of the city
of Erie, and lies about the mouth of Elk Creek
between the Railroad which bounds it on the
south, and the lake shore. This land is. in
its character a sandy loam, highly fertile, with
about one hundred acres cleared and cultiva
ted, and the residue in heavy timber, of oak,
hickory, chesnut, ash and hemlock :—this
point, in its situation, is commanding and
beauttful. Judge Miles will also give a pre
empti6ll.,zight to any additional quantity of
land whiee t may be desired, at sixty dollars an
Your committee next viewed the estate of
Geo. A. Bayard, Eq., of Allegheny county,
situate r n the Youghageny River, about three
miles from its mouth, and eighteen miles from
the city of Pittsburg. This estate consists of
six diundred acres of free stone land, worth at
present prices thirty five dollars nn acre.—
There has been a very large expenditure upon
this estate in the erection of buildings, fences
and other improvements, which are made of
the most substantial and durable materials.
A large brick mansioa has just been erected
and is yet unfinished;—there are two large
barns and many other dwelling houses on the
property, all of which aro built of cut stone ;
running water is abundant, end tLe whole
property lies in a bend of the Youghageny Ri
ver, which is navigated by steamboats at all
seasons of the year. Mr. Bayard proposes to
sell this property to the Institution, at such a
price, and upon such terms, as to time of pay
ment, as would make the purchase desirable
We were then invited to view the estate of
Col. Elias Baker, situate on the Pennsylvania'
Railroad, about two miles south west of Al
toona, in Blair county. Col. Baker offers
gratuitously two hundred acres of land, all of,
which is cleared and fenced, except about
forty acres, and lies on both sides of tie rail
road ;—that on the south side, about sixty
acres, is of a very good quality of freestone
land, and that on the north, is a good quality
of slate land. There Ire upwards of two hun
dred acres more in the tract which may be
purchased at twenty-five dollars an acre.—
This land is finely watered, Mill Creek pass
ing through it, and over-head water can be
brought to any buildings which m'ght be
erected upon the premises from a large and
unfailing spring. These are the only points
which have been examined by your committee
but since their return they have received a
communication informing \ them that Mr. IL
Easton, of Franklin county, offers to donate
for the purposes of d 4 The Farmers' High
School" two hundred acres of land, of the val
ue of sixty dollars an acre, upon condition Of
its location there, or that he will contribute
liberally, with others, to induce its location
anywhere within the county of Franklin.
In the examination made by your commit-,
tee, they were accompanied by several mem
bers of the Board, Messrs. Robert C. Walker,
If. N. McAlister, Ifon. Wm. Jessup, anil lion.
A. 4), lteister, of whose opinion allot counsel
we had the advantage It 117:1,9 a remark . ,
common to us all, that the feelings and inter
ests of the people of Pennsylvania bad never

been awakened to the importance of this sub
ject. Everywhere we went, and every one
we saw, seemed to increase the impression,'
-that this, of all things else, i 9 what Pennsyl
vania wantsa place where farmers may
safely and cheaply educate their sons in the
science and practice of agriculture.
There is not one point viewed by your com
mittee tvhich would not be eligible for the lo
eation of " The Farmers iligh School." But
so little has heretofore been known through
out thi , State of the movement now being
made for its establishment, and the determin
ed purpose of the Board of Trustees to act
speedily, that it would be inexpedient and
injudicious that your committee should, at
this liniment, recommendel the adoption of
one site as more eligible than the others. (me
already offered, we have had no opportunity
to see, and doubtless others will be presented
possessing advantages to coin tad the atten
tion of the Board.
The point where the school shall be so,cated
is a matter of very great inter ‘st, and should
not be hastily determined um,n, nor until
greater publicity should be given to the fact
that :the Beard ore clout to net definitely
upon the subject.
- Which is respectfully submitted,
A• L. ELW YN,
Elt El • WArts.
The Committee then offered the following'
resolut:ous which were agreed to.
Ecso/red, That when tans Board adjourns it
be to inert again at this place on Wednesday,
the 12th of September next, tit 10 o'clock. A.
M., and that the Board will then proceed to
determine finally the point where the " Far
mers' high School,' shall be located.
Resolved, That the duties or the committee
het'etofore appointed to receive communica
tions and examine proposed points of location
be continued ; and should any further pro
po•itious be made, that they report the same
to the Board at its next meeting.
Wiimmks, The determination of the Board
speedily to put the " Farmers' High FCIli , 01"
into operation remlers it necessary that a
Principal to conduct its operations and teach
ings, and especially to nil in its organization,
should lie chosen ; therefore,
Rewired, That Dr. A. L. Elwyn, John
Strohm and Win. Jessiip, be a committee
whose duty it shall be to select a proper per
-son for that purpose and that they make re
port to the next meeting of the Board.
PA.—After the Board had taken action
upon the foregoing report and resolutions, a
gentleman of Dauphin county, a member of
the executive committee ,of the State Agricul
tural Society. appeared before the Board, and
said that at the next Meeting, the citizens of
Dauphin county, to induce the location of the
School here, would offer to pay the sum of
ten thousand dollars, and with a view to its
attainment he would head the subscription
with one thousand dollars. A' delegation of
Messrs. Geo. W. Patton and 4,9,hn Morrow
from t 6 countyof Blair, on behalf - of h citi•
zens, pro 'posed that they would purchns& and
pay for two hundred acres of land of Col.
Baker, in addition to what he offers gratui
tously. Thus presenting to the Board a grant
of four hundred acres'on condition of the, lo
cation of the School there.
A communication was received from Joseph
Bailey and referred to the committee having
charge of the subject, inviting the Trustees to
look at a.large tract of land in Perry county
which lie proposes to sell upon liberal terms
to the Farmers' High School.
A communication was received from Alger-
non S. Roberts, stating that the imperative
demands of public business prevented his at

not produce the slaves because they were be
yond his control, and the District Attorney

The main facts have been already stated of
the unsuccessful attack nn Sebastopol on the

It is stated - that General Margan's French
division, on the wily to attack the fort on the
extreme right, by the Careening Harbor, Corn
miqivell the attack prematurely, and before
the i-ther dkisiens had taken their ground.—

Grders were then given to withdraw the troops
into the trenches, although Weneral Aute•
marre had meantime reached the Malakoff
Tower. The retreat wits effected with good
order, but with great loss.
wh,,„1„ 1 ,1 Raglan saw the defeat of the first
French Division, he hastily or,ll.,reil an attack
on the Itediin, to effect a diversion—in favor of
the-I'l.mnd'. although it was previously inten
ded that the Fritish should not attack until
th e French should have captured the Malakoff,
inasmuch as. , the Maluk df, inasmuch as the
Malakoff's guns i l uite commanded the Redan.
So far :IS civilians at a iGsuauee could judge,
Lord Raglan's order to attack was a great
rror. for the British storming, party not being
sufficiently strong to carry the works, were
repulsed with much slaughter.- A curious in
cident is, that Gen. Eyre, with 2:000 British
troops, penetrated into the suburbs of Sebas
topol itself, and held possession of tine houses
in one .street for seventeen hours, but being
totapy . unsupported, he retired at nightfall.—
TheT inference is, that had the assault been
general, or systematically
,planned, the city
would have fallen, or at least its first line of
drlcucc inigAt have been carried.
French letters of June 23d says that the
army was full of confidence. The approaches
were pushing forward to the Malakoff tower,
and a French battery or thirty guns was
nearly completed, in front of the Careening
Bay to beep off the Russian ships, their fire

,Careful estimates show that this war has
already cost half a million of lives, and yet no
decisive battles have taken place.
The Journal of St. Petersburg publishes a
correspondence respecting the recent affair at
'Tango, stating that the flag of truce was not
visible, and accusing the English of making
improper uses of truce generally.
On the sth of July the Legislature voted the

this loan, au increase of taxation is proposed,
