THE AGRICULTURAL INTER-
i ESTS OF OUR STATE. . ;
The report oh the general condi
tion of the agricultural interests of
North Carolina, from returns made
to the State Department oi Agn
culture, is one o the most valuable
and instructive pamphlets issued
from that Department: Circular let
ter of inquiry were eehimrttocorreSf
pendents in every county, and from
the annwers to the questions- 27 in
number tho facts and data were
collected. Only 4 counties failed to
make returns.
Of the 90 counties reporting 64
produce cotton Of these - torty
lour estimate , the yield ot. last year
to be less than that ot 186, and ol
these thirty-six report " an averagt
decrease ot twenty-eight per cent
In twelve counties, the yield is es
timatod to be about the same, while
in eiht an increase is reported
The average of the estimated cost oi
production per- ouni throughout
the sixty-tour2 counties, is 8 11-12
xty-tour'
cent. . I , ,
The average yield per acre of to
bacco in the forty-two counties re.
parting it, is about six hundred
pounds.: Estimated cost of produc
tion is not given.. . j
I orty-einht counties -produced an
ample supply of.bread and meat and
forage for stock, and of thesw t wenty-one
rejiort aMirpliis. Twenty
others report a supply ot grain and
forage but not a suthciency ol meat,
while the remaining twenty-two .re
port a general deficiency ,
One county reports no small grain.
One reports no wheat, but a largely
increase acreage in oats. Two - re
port a smaller acreage-than in 1876.
Thirteen I estimate fhe acreage as
about the same, while seventy-three
gave an increased acreage, varying
from 25 per cent, to' 200 per -t cent.
In eighty-nine I counties shep
could be raised profitably; and the
average ost per head of keeping
them through the winter does not
exceed 50 cents. In iifty-six. cun
lies sheep husbandry woul'j ai 'once
engage theattentiii of .'ihc$l larjmeiv,
and couldbVniadf very .rein'iiiera

l'ss sheep-killing dogs, v :
Four crnitf ties report that they do
not desire immigration, and eignty
six respond strongly in ttie ufarina:

There is no system 'recognised v.i

in six count ies there fs iv h.ar ke I

In forty-one counties ' farmers are
generally fiee from ' debt, and ae

th ej'o nf "r e in am in g counties, while
they have a -supply of forage, grain

AMONG THE ANIMALS IN

The oid llsdn who has so long
been an inmate of the park Tias a his
tory. Some years, ago a dispatch
was received by Mr. Conklin that a
"bufralo"' had beeri seen .in lbwfr
Canada, having evidently wandered
from the fur west, and that, if aotne
one was rent to aasist in it.4 capture
it would, be 'presented to New York.
Mr. Conklin marted in person, and
after a few weeks. of 'genuine hunt
ing they discovered,, the "wanderer,
and he was tiuocesstully lassoed by
Mr. Conklin. He woti d no,t be led,
and .it last the huge creature was
thrown to the ground and tied and
dragged upon a sled to the nearest
railway and rapidly wheeled to its
present quarters,'
