AGRICULTURE
5 - D1D Jan. 8; ed:3/2 The NEW ENGLAND FARMER says: "The
President, in his annual message to Congress, strongly recommends the
establishment of an Agricultural Bureau at Washington. The proposed
measure is one of great importance to the entire agricultural interest
of the United States, and we hope it will receive that attention from
Congress which it merits."

"We second the expression made by the editor of the NEW ENGLAND FARMER. The establishment of an Agricultural Bureau should have been made years since, and would, had the agricultural interests of the country been fairly represented."

6 DTD Jan. 9; ed: 1/2 - Since the publication of Liebeg's work
CHEMISTRY APPLIED TO AGRICULTURE, in which he advocates the necessity
of applying to soils such ingredients as are apparently deficient for
the production of a healthy crop of wheat, corn, etc., there has been
among some writers considerable discussion as to how far Liebeg was
correct in his authoritative statements.

- To us, while the subject is truly scientific, it yet presents a
plain, practical, common-sense form, which is conclusive. That the ap-
plication of some substance must be made to soil after successive
cropping, in order to continue its productiveness, is a plain truth
known to every practical man.

ANNEXATION & EXPANSION

DTD Nov. 2; ed:2/1 - See Political Campaigns & Elections

· U. S.

18 - DTD Nov. 12; ed:2/2 · Some Whigs are determined to have Cuba annexed, with slavery, and to consider the pro-slavery party not only as triumphant, but sure to have all it may demand. The North would oppose it, as would France and England, and furthermore Spain would not sell Cuba.

"Cuba is not annexed yet; nor will it be with slavery, if there be a North, or anything akin to it."

(10)

19 - DTD Dec. 14; ed: 2/2 The opinion that the slaveholders are eager
to get Cuba prevails. That opinion is not correct. They would take it
as a slave state if all things suited; but the far seeing among them
would not take it at the hazard of another "moral battle," wherein
"Freedom would he sure to win." There is not an intelligent man in the
South who does not believe that the days of slavery are numbered; fur-
thermore the North would not consent to the South taking Cuba.

"We have compromised at the bidding of a slave despotism until our people are sick of it. The voice and vote of the Freeman of the Free States, hereafter, will be for Free Soil, and for Free Soil only."

ANNEXATION & EXPANSION (Cont'd) 20 DTD Dec. 15; ed:2/1 - All over the reserve the Whig press blames the "free" Democrats for the election of a Mr. Pierce, and they say Cuba must be annexed. The South will not take Cuba, nor will the North countenance such a move.

The New York TRIBUNE and the leading press of the South concur in the impracticability of the Cuban annexation. "What next gentlemen? Where now? We hope, at least, that you will inform your readers of your error, and rejoice with them, that the prospect is not so gloomy as you painted." (11)

21 - DTD Dec. 29; ed:2/1 - The annexation of the Sandwich islands will be pressed by California senators; it is said the proposal to carry it out will succeed. "If so, the Wilmot Proviso will come up for discussion again." (5)
