0 0 45 While the earth remaineth, seed-time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. - Genesis viii, 22.

Land and trade are knit together, and together must wax or wane ; so that it never shall be well with land, but trade be better for it, nor the trade shall suffer but land shall feel it. -Sir Joshua Child.

COMPARATIVE SUPPLY. While the quantity of corn imported from Russia increased in the interval 1840—2 and 1851–3 more than fourfold, the quantity imported from Egypt increased of all kinds of corn tenfold, and of wheat thirtyfold ; and the quantity imported from the United States increased of all kinds of corn sevenfold, and of wheat and flour more than sixfold. Our increasing supplies, therefore, are coming in greater proportions from other countries than from Russia. It is highly satisfactory to see, though the supply of all kinds of grain from the United States does not much exceed that from Russia, that the supply of wheat and flour on the average of the three last years exceeds the supply from Russia by 407,265 qrs. It further appears, too, that while the quantity of wheat and flour imported from Russia was about 16 per cent. of our total importations, that the quantity imported from the United States in the three years 1851–3 was more than 23 per cent. of the total imports.Economist, April 1, 1854.

(Sittings at Nisi Prius, before Chief Justice Jervis and Special Juries.)


Mr. Serjeant Byles and Mr. Montague Smith were counsel for the plaintiff; Mr. Knowles, Q. C., and Mr. Willes appeared for the defendant.

This was au action upon a contract to deliver 1,036 quarters 6 bushels of Syrian barley, of fair average quality, of the seasou of 1851, by the Helen, from Jaffa to London. The question was, whether the cargo which was delivered was of the fair average quality of Syrian barley of the season.

Mr. Serjeant Bylfs, in opening the case, said, that he should prove that the barley was excessively foul, and contained dirt, stones, straw, and camels' dung, was heated and tainted, and that he should test the quality by that of Syrian barley brought by the Hannah, the Lauriston, and the Hector, which sailed from Jafla (the ancient Joppa, where Simon the tanner had his house by the sea-side) to British ports; that the cargoes of these vessels weighed respectively 464 lb., 451 lb., and 44, lb. per bushel, whereas that of the Helen weighed only from 40 lb. to 414 10.

Hinckley, a lighterman, proved that he took 200 quarters from the Helen. The weight was from 404 lb. to 41 lb. per bushel. He never knew such barley; it contained quantities of straw, stones, camels' droppings, and insects of various kinds. The stones (exhibited to witness) were a fair specimen. In the process of winnowing witness threw away 40 sucks of dust and insects, 11 of straw and stubble, half a sack of large stones, and bad three four-bushel sacks full left--equivalent to 30 quarters altogether. After winDowing the weight was 46ļ lb. per bushel. In consequence of the great loss by winnowing, he recommended it to be screened only.

It appeared the witness was speaking of Egyptian barley, but was ignorant of what would be a fair average for Syrian.

Baby, the last witness's foreman, spoke to the same effect, and said it had a bad smell, and contained mould.

Cross-examined -He had never seen a cargo of Syrian barley before.

Mr. Wright, a cornfactor, said the cargo was heated from excessive foulness. A loss of 4 or 5 per cent. was not a great loss on Syrian or Egyptian barley.

Re-examined.-It is used for feeding pigs and poultry. Mr. Hutchinson said,-It was discoloured and very foul. Not being a distiller, he could not say whether it would do for that purpose. The market for it would be limited. By the custom of the corn trade quality had reference to the time of shipment.

The Chief JUSTICE (who eutertained a different opinion) took a noto an objection raised on this point.

Cross-examined. The last witness said the quantity of dirt in all Mediterranean cargoes was about the same.

Mr. Asser.---Had been at Smyrna. The harvest is at the end of May. They have no fails. The threshing is done by the treading of oxen.

The CuIEF JUSTICE, in summing up, said Syrian barley was an article not much intro


viz. :


duced into this country, and it was plain no one knew much about it. The question was, whether, notwithstanding the mixture of dung and other things, the quality was a fair average for Syrian barley? There was little in the evidence to show how the barley was got in in Syria; they had not Garret's winnowing-machine there yet. Upon the evidence, necessarily slight, the jury must satisfy themselves that the cargo of the Helen was of fair average quality of the season of 1851. If the barley was, in their opinion, of a fair average quality for Syrian barley of that season, the damages would be the difference between the value of it, supposing it had answered the plaintiff's contract, and the value of it such as it was. The Jury found a verdiet for the plaintifl-Damages, £77 14s.

USES. Mr. Wallis notices, in the report of his visit to America at the time of the New York Industrial Exhibition, that the cheapness of cotton in the United States, as a raw material, causes it to be used for many of the purposes for which flax and hemp are alone employed in Europe. There was cotton sailcloth at our own Great Exhibition in 1851, and in the Exhibition at New York there were very excellent specimens of the use of cotton in the manufacture of cordage

and twine. Fishing-nets of cotton-twine, woven ou a loom at Baltimore, are stated to be quite equal, in every respect, probably superior, to hand-made nets. Seamless grain-bags are another novel and important article of trade, and a company at Manchester, New Hampshire, have 126 looms employed in producing them. The inventor of the seamless-bag loom has lately patented an adaptation of the invention to the weaving of cotton hose for fire-engines. Mr. Wallis describes it as coming largely into use in the covering of articles of furniture and for carriage linings. CRANBERRIES
