Washington, May 15tb, 1882. The
signal service Is abont to send two ex
peditions to the Arctic regions for the
relief and supply of the parties already
there. A year ago Lieut. Greely.of the
5th cavalry, a meteorologist, who has
h;id long service in the signal corps,
headed an expedition to Lady Franklin
Bay, and Lieut. Ray, of the 8th infantry,
headed another expedition to Point
Barrow. They reached there safely,
having with them provisions and other
stores for a year and building materials
The two stations thus established,'
are part of a chain of international
stations, among which are stations at
the mmith of the Lena and at Barnaul,
in .Siberia, and at North Cape, in Swe
den. These stations, with others, have been
established for the purpose of taking
meteorological, astronomical, magnetic
and time observations as near as possi
ble to the north pole. The observa
tions are to be taken at the same actual
time. The simultaneous observations
will begin on the first of the coming
August. The two expeditions that are
to btart out as soon as possible will
c.rry to the parties at Point Barrow
aad Lady Franklin Bay another year's
supply of provisions, clothing, l'uei,
medical stores and other needed arti
cles. Three or tour observers will ao
c- mpany each party for the purpose of
rc'idciug any oi toe meu who may
i.ave died during the year or relieving
. uuse who may have become incapaci
l vied for remainiug in the cold climate
i thb far north. No communication
-.a been had with either Lieut. Greeley
..r Lieut Uay since the return of the
' . -.-sels that carried them to their sta
"ons a year ago. Maj. W. M. Beebe,
J r., will proceed at once to St. Johns, N.
F., fur the purpose of chartering a ves
sf'l and arranging for supplies for Lieut.
Greeley's party. He will then probably
be ordered to supervise the difficult
task of makiug his way through the ice
and landing the supplies. Lieut. J. S.
Fo well will have charge of the paity
going to Point Barrow. He will be
obliged to make his way to the station
by sledges for two hundred miles on
the ice with none to depend on but the
treacherous natives. He expects to sail
from San Francisco about the first of
July. All supplies or letters must be
sent to him at that city in time to reach
him before June 10th. All supplies or
letters destined for Lady Franklin Bay
should be sent to the signal office in
Washington before that date.
A report upon the silk manufactur
ing industry of the United States by
W. C. Wyckoff, special census agent, is
an interesting document showing as it
does that mulberry trees from which
silk is made were first grown on this
continent, near the City of Mexico, in
1522, under direction of Cortez. There
are now in this country 382 factories,
employing 34,521 hands, to whom wages
amounting to over nine million dollars
are paid. Capital to the amount of
$19,125,300 is invested in this industry.
In speaking of the early nistory or. this
industry, Mr. Wyckoff finds that North
and South Carolina occupied a promi
nent position as early as 1693. Sir
Thomas Lambe considered the South
Carolina silk of that day equal in
strength and beauty to that of Italy.
Yet in twenty-five years but 287 pounds
were exported between the years 1731
and 1755. In the last named year Mrs.
Pinckney, who is also famous as the
introducer of the indigo plant into
South Carolina, took with her to Eng
land some silk which she had raised
and spun near Charleston ; three com
plete dresses were made therefrom;
one was presented to the princess dow
ager of Wales, one to Lord Chesterfield,
and one remained an elegant heirloom
in possession of the family for more
than fifty ears. (During the Revolu
tionary War the Pinckneys won re
nown which outshone that of the arts
of peace.) It i3 said that 630 pounds of
silk were raised in at Silk Hope
plantation. Perhaps South Carolina
d d not get, full credit for her silk pn;
ducts, as much of it went to Georgia to
be reeled, resulting in its ultimate ship
ment from savannah, "luere is some
carious evidenc of popular belief or
rumor to this effect, which will be men
tioned hereafter. Charleston people
wanted a filature in their city to pre
vent the diversion or trade, ami an act
was passed to meet the wish, in 1766,
by the colonial assembly. This was
followed by a grant of 1,000 to support
the enterprise. Meanwmie tne juonaon
Society of Arts was giving handsome
bounties tor cocoons ana raw siik, ana
kept up the offer till 1772; Parliament
in 1769 granted a bounty of 25' per cent,
for seven years on all raw silk imported
from the colonies. But the Revolu
tionary War put a stop to the bounties,
and the silk industry of South Carolina
ceased to exist. The Abbe Raynal has
pronounced its funeral oration. That
philosophical writer of course offers a
theory; silk was not exported because
neeresses were not imported. He con
Yet the progress of this branch of
trade has not been answerable to so
promising a beginning. The blame has
been laid on tne mnaoitanis oi tne col
ony, who, buying only negro men from
whom they receive an immediate ana
certain profit, neglected to have women
who, with their children, mignt nave
been employed in bringing up silk
worms, an occupation suitable to the
weakness of that sex and to the ten
In 1732 Georgia, which had been a
part of the fertile Carolinas, was by
charter placed under a board of trus
tees. To them the famous General
Orglethorpe in 1736 addressed a poem in
hope of stirring up their lagging ener
gies on the subject of silk culture. The
last lines run:
"Nor less the care
Of the yonng province to oblige the fair ;
Here tend the silkworm in verdant shade,
The frugal matron and the blooming maid "
Despite appeals to the muse by Gen
eral Orglethorpe and forcible letters by
Sir Lambe, the silk industry did not
thrive. An average exportation from
Georgia from 1750 to 1772 being 500
pounds per annum.
Another effort was made in, 1775 to
revive interest in silk manufactures
and the London society in offering pre
miums mention among others in their
respective colonies who are authorized
to pay them, George Pollock, Cullen
Pollock and John Rutherford, of North
Carolina. ' But no; silk manufactures
were not destined to cut any considera
ble figure in colonial history and per
haps not iri American annals. ,
Between 1831 and 1839. a 'speculative
era in which silk culture took an impe
tus because of - the introduction- of a
tree known as morus multicqulis, gave
rise to high hopes, but these were
blighted in 1844 by trie ' hard season
which; put an. end practically Bilk
culture until now when interest in its
growth is reviving.

be done or what was expected taking
the place of statistical
A writer who seems to have been
more conservative than the majority
estimated the annual production in
1841 at 30,000 pounds.
After the blight of the mulberry in
1844, a long period elapsed in which
there is no record of anything- more
than trifling experiments in producing
silk, except ah" indefinite account of a
considerable quantity of cocoons ob
tained at and near New Orleans and
shipped to Europe about the year 1860.
The cultivation of the mulberry was
begun in. California in 1854; silkworm
eggs were received there in 1860; "in
1865 about 250 pounds of cocoons were
obtained, and tbe product reached 1.9C0
pounds in 1868.
The enterprise reached its highest
point in 1870, when more than a mil
lion mulberry trees were growing in
the State. The production of silkworm
eggs for export to Europe on a large1
scale was attempted, and one company!
raised from 7,000 to 8,000 ounces.
This industry was encouraged by an
act of the California Legislature in
1865-'66, giving a bonnty of $250 for
planting 5,000 mulberry trees and $300
per 100,000 cocoons. The operation of
the law proved .unsatisfactory and it
was soon repealed. An attempt to
pass a new act to "encourage silk "cul
ture and manufacture" was defeated in
the California Senate in 1872. The
speculation in silk raising "raged with
unabated fury for several years, inflict
ing severe losses. It is at present al
most extinct in California in conse
quence of the reaction against this ma
nia." An inquiry was attempted by the
writer to ascertain the amount of raw
silk raised in the United States during
the census year ending June 30, 188a
It was soon determined that the ex
pense of making such an investigation
thoroughly would be more than tbe re
sult could be worth.
The only instances of the use of na
tive silk iu manufacture were at Wil
liamsburg, Kansas, and at Salt Lake
City, Utah. The . latter experiment
proved financially a failure, the raw
silk costing much more than the Asiat
ic product. It may, however, be stated
in a general way, without pretension to
accuracy, that the amount of reeled
silk produced in Utah Territory during
the year was less than 1,000 pounds; the
amount in Kansas : was less than 500
pounds, and the product in no other
State was more than half as much.
Missouri and North Carolina probably
came next in amount of cocoons raised,
and after those States Pennsylvania
and New Jersey, the quantities produc
ed there and in scattered localities
throughout the country being incon
siderable. Mr. Joseph Nimmo, Jr., statistician
of the treasury department, furnishes a
summary of the imports and exports of
the United States for the month ended
February 28, 1882. From this state
ment it is shown, among other
articles, that 37,147,274 pounds
of coffee were imported, valued at
$3,657,488, making for the eight months
of the fiscal year 294,487,130 pounds,
with a total valuation of $30,606,812,
which is about six million dollars less
than fbr the same period the last fiscal
year. Strange as it may appear in this,
the greatest agricultural country in the
world, we imported breadstuffs and
other farinaceous food during the past
eight months to the value of over saven
million dollars. Tobacco and cigars
were imported to the value of over four
million dollars. The total importations
of over 250 articles amounted in the
past eight months to the enormous sum
of $458,639,962, or, in other words, that
amount of money was sent out of the
country for articles most of which are
the products of our own soil. For the
same period domestiexporta amounted
to $518,168,736, which is $89,659,205 fess
in value than was exported for the
same months of the last fiscal year,
while the imports for the same period
increased in value $50,288,653, thus
making an unfavorable showing for the
United States. Among the articles.
most largely exported are cotton goods,
of which over 1,300,000,000 pounds,
valued at over $150,000,000, were ex
ported for the past eight months of the
fiscal year. Wheat comes next, 74,280,-
494 bushels, valued at $88,165,201, being
exported ior the same period ; this how
ever is a heavy falling off for the same
months of the last fiscal year, when
$118,219,833 worth was exported. To
bacco shows up very well in this ex
hibit, 157,128,160 pounds of leaf, valued
at $13,486,533, being exported beside
cigars and snuff to about one million
dollars. Other articles that figure
largely in the list are provisions and
oils, but these are the products of the
whole country, w hile cottoh amd tohac
co are indigenous to the South, from
which it may be remarked that the
South in these two staples adds much,
perhaps more than any other one sec
tion in swelling the value of the ex'
ports of the United States.
The United States Brewers' Associa
tion held their twenty-second annual
convention in this city last week. They
represented, in the persons of the three
hundred delegates present, over fifteen
minions or dollars in money, it was
stated during the proceedings that over
one hundred and fifty millions of dol
lars capital was invested in the brewing
ousiness. Tne president or the con
vention, Herman B. Scharman, of
Brooklyn, N. Y., made an opening ad
