A correspondent f the Missouri Pi-mo-crut,
gives tho following account of the
Iowa Stnte fair, held recently in Muscu
tine, in thul Slute :
" Tho third nnnunl exhibition of the
Iowa Stuto I'll i r , closed hero this nftcrnoon
(Oct. 10th.) nftcr three dtiy's continuiuicc,
during whit h tinio it 1ms Ix-on largely nt
tciuli'd. The town hns been nvrrliowing
with pip.-ts from nil pnrts of the. Srhto, anil
many even from Illinois nnd Missouri.
Tho ground nre clligiWy situated nhoui
two miles from the city, and contain inn
jilo iicconimodations for tho minimis tx
hibited. A State Fair should he n per
miuient institidion, to be holden in tho
same place each year, and preparations
STOCK AND llOHStS.
There was n largo collection of very
fair Mock exhibited but little strictly choice.
Carelessness wns jioticenblo throughout,
and were disposed to nttribute the defect
more to tho mode of keeping, than inferi
ority of breedi. , The fanners of Iowa
have not given sufficient attention, we fenr,
to the manner of feeding and raising stock
in brief, do not as a class, fully nppte-
cmte tho advantages of high-toned agri
cultural periodic ils, and works on that
subject. Inceptions can, oi course, w
found, and these few exceptions, do more
good in the community, than ten dozen
old fashioned fanners, who will neither
make improvements themselves, nor adopt
those of others.
We noticed some good specimens of
sheep, and judge well of Iowu as a wool
growing State, from those shown. There
was aUo a good display of swine.
The display of horses vas really very
excellent, ami some few of rare beauty
were shown, which we regret our inabili
ty to notico separately and indivtdunlly.
To partially report would do greater in
justice, than to deal generally as we are
reluctantly compelled to do.
rRVlTS AND VClitTABI.KS.
There were beautiful and numerous
varieties of apples, which we do not re
member to have seen exceeded in quality,
and rarely in quantity at a fair. A upe
cimen of Rhubarb plant from Wisconsin
was thirteen inches in circumference and
weighed eight and one-half pounds.
Hoots, l'umpkins, Radishes, Turnips,
Squashes, and Potatoes exceeded in Me
the bounds of reason and almost of cre
dence, and proves conclusively that Iowa
is some pumkins in the vegetable business,
The display here was laKn ing under
moderate " goneness" and was not very
extensive, though some of tho articles
were very credituble.
Some white flaluiel would do credit to
soiuj of thoso ingenious and busy dames
who preceded u by n half century, Some
fancy needle-work showed great taste
and skill, a scarf richly embroidered
especially. Also, some worked handker
chiefs were very neatly vx"utod. Some
yarn stockings showed that home industry
was yet popular in Iowa, and so long as
it is we have hopes of her pernutut-ncy
and presume she will not be " disolved."
The lady who made her husband a fine
shirt did not exhibit it, but the knit coun
terpanes were there implying that the
maker was industrious. The patch-work
quilt business was luippily represented,
but it is a tui:iess only lit for little girls
and folks who haven't anything to do.
Hon. Yvorannot but think this artic le
dostinq) to supercede boards or rails for
the purpose intended, and while vs yield
our pri -u retire to tin Osage orange iioilge
we bofpenk for wire nt least nn impartial
Messrs. r.mcry &. Hrothers, of the
Agrii-uitural works. Chicago, done some
excellent work with their thresher and
separator, and w e observed afforded gene
ral satisfaction with their horse powers.
The rorn and rob mills were represented
by the " Little (Jinnt," (which seems ubi
ijuitoMs,) the "Star" and " I'xcelsior
Young America," and an interesting con
test took place for tho set of silver ten
service which had been placed nt the dis-Pot-nl
of the ocictv. hv Jaines B. Chad-
wick, of your city, to be awarded ,to the
best Mill. Tho roinnnttpe lotM mined
open twenty revolutions each for the mills,
when they performed as follows: The
Little Grunt ground one and three-fourth
hurdiel-, the Starles.i than throe-fourths
of one buslrol, and the Excelsior Young
Amerira seven-eights of one bushel of
mi;nl in the time. The committee ilnani
iiiously decided in favor of the Little (Jiant
and awarded the silver service nccoid
ingly. 11. Spencer, of 'nurliiigton, had on tin?
ground a thresher which wns not tested
in cotisonuonce of an nnident arising
from defective Muclisniithing. ;
Messrs. Ijindrtth &. Jvuis, of P.-oria,
III., exhibited n rorn-vhetler, (Reading's
rrttenO which astonished mid pleaded by
the rapidity of its performance. It is for
two or four horses, and can lie made to
shell two hundred und fifty bushels per
Mr. Hedges of Cincinnati, though nearly
killed by an accident at the Kentucky Fair,
nt Paris a few days fimc, hud a special
renin rci tiou for the purpose of exhibiting
the " Crescent (ruin Mill," manufactured
by Scott nnd Hedges, of Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Crescent received first award over
the " Felon" nnoiher similar portable
iron flouriii.'r, though a much more expen
sive mill than the Crescent. J. P. Smith
showed a Rough Si Rendy corn sheller,
which did a moderate amount 'of work
with a moderate amount of " hand" power.
II. C. Ilouts & Co., of St. Louis, n patent
wire cloth smut machine. Geo. Kelly, of
Wisconsin, an ingenious contrivance for
equalizing the draft of horses on a thresh
ing machine, which seemed well adapted
to the purpose. N. H. Grupe, of Hurling
ton, hud a churn, but we detest thut spe
cies of ccntrivance from the too vivid re
membrance of our boyhood.
C. P. Lure 8t Co., of Davenport, showed
fmo specimens of blank books. I j ow-
ton, oi Hatavia, III., specimens of wagons
and carriages, the grace of model onu
beautiful finish of which would do credit
to any manufacturer, either east or west.
Faxon, Norton & Co., fine furniture, much
admired. Holt Si Wilson, of Muscutine,
some superb hurness. Geo. Roberts &
Co., fine saddles and harness. S. Ketch
um Si W. II. Stearne, of Muscatine, fine
disiiluy of lioots and shoes. S. 11. Clasher
ambrotypes ; were fine specimens of that
art. Numerous iars of pickles produced,
on our sleep, the effect of an attack of
mania ;oit. They consisted of snukes,
lizards, toads and creeping things goner
nllv. If every housekeeper would pirk!
a few the present season, or accent a few
from the nameless wretch who exhibited
at Muscatine, we think that class of con
diment would not need any immediate
replenishing, ami make the suggestion
uccoi'dinoly. D. Doi wavt, of Linn Co.,
exhibited some beautiful Chinese fowls
called Silkeys, which we fervently hope
and pray may fall upon and exterminate
every long legged Shanghai in the world
The proceedings closed with an address
preceeded by a display of female eques
trianism, more creditable m point of oxe
cut ion than conception. We cannot sepa
rate such public displays from cireusscs,
and would suggest that they lie confined
therw instead of appearing in the crowded
amphiilieutor of the Agricultural Fair.
We have the same fault in regard to the
excessive trotting matches, which was a
fault at Muscatine and at Alton.

This despised reptilo probably destroys

We should study the history of these
humble parts of creation, uid learn to
protect, encourage, and upply to use ?uch
as were provided for that purp se. An
enemy the curculio and the ci,Kllinfc
moth may yet be discovered among them.
F.neourngement is nlso to be taken from
the fact, that when any rpeoies of the ani
mal kingdom becomes thus numerous, they
arc apt to rapidly disappear from the. ope
ration of causes not always discovered or
understood. A few years since a species
"f grasshopper began to increase beyond
its usual tiumlx r. At the end of the third
seusMi it was so numerous, in ninny locali
ties in this county, that it lirst devoured
every kind of green vegetation; next it
ate off the down from the surface of old
rails, nnd at length each individual, Kil-kenney-bke,
attacked the legs and wings'
of ils neighbor. In this predicament they
all died, ond lit this day very liuuted iiui'u
bers are to be found.
The rose-bug, potato-bug, and slug have
ench'had ils periods of increase, excess,
nnl disappearance, in this vicinity, during
the last ten years. TJie wheat-weevil is
now increasing and sni'eailit'g Over this
country, yet it is probable some counter
acting agent will sooner or later appear
to arrest rts progress.

A few days ago we met n gentleman
from Alabama, who gave us h piece of
information in regard to ascertaining the
age of a horse after he or she has passed
the ninth year, which was now to us, and
will be, we tire sure, to most of our read
ers. It is this, after the horse is nine
years old. a wrinkle comes at the upper
corner of the lower lid, and every year
thereafter he has one well defined wrin
kle for each year over nine. If, for in-
iustance, a horse has three w rinkles, he
is twelve; if four he is thirteen. Add
the number of wrinkles to nine, and you
will always get it. bo says the gentleman
and he is confident it will never fail. As
a good many people have horses over nine
it is easily tried. If true tho horse uen-
tist must give up his trade. S. Tlanter,

Guessino Time. It is recorded of a
minister, in the early settlement or this
country, that he broke off in the midst of
a sermon and exclaimed :
"I guess you are all asleep, ain't ye 1
Upon hearing this, a young man rose
in tne miust ot uie congregation, anu
"I guess we ain't half asleep !". .
An action was instituted against the of
fender, and he was brought up to trial for
speaking in "sarmon tune. When tne
penalty was about to be adjudged, the pri
soner gained his liberty and his case, and
overthrew the logic of the prosecution, by
declaring to their honors, and the jury,
if they had one, that lie had not spoken

The judge let him go at liberty. . -

Alone toss'd rolls a tear by Moses,

To mark the sprouting Indian corn,
And see the lambs at play.
"Lafayette told a camp anecdote of the
revolution one morning at the President's
(Monroe's) table, of such gout, writes
AVirt to his friend Morris, "that I think
Pope ought to have it in his budget. Hay
asked him whether Lord Sterling wa
really a nobleman by birth, or only
lord by courtesy." The marquis said he
did not know how that was, but that there
never was a lord that was prouder of his
tide; that no one could say "lord" or
"lordship" in his hearing, but he thought
that he was the person spoken to or
spoken of. In proof of which he stated
that one of Sterling's soldiers was to hs
shot for some offense, and as the po
devil was going to the place of execution,
with his arms manacled behind him, h
raised his eyes to heaven, and, in his
despair, exclaimed, "Lord have mercy on

portance of Jupiter, both cheeks puffed
up with rage, "I'll bo d 1 if I do," im
agining that he alone could be the object
of the ejaculation. It was extremely well
told, and produced a high effect.
