MEASURING CORN. The following rule for ascertaining the quantity of shelled corn in a house of any dimensions, is by Wm. Murray, Esq., of South Carolina, and was read before the St. John's Colleton Agricultural Society, and communicated by them for publication in the Southern Agriculturalist. Rule.—Having previously levelled the corn in the house so that it will be of equal depth throughout, ascertain the length and breadth and depth of the bulk; multiply these dimensions together, and their products by 4, then cut off one figure from the right of this last product. This will give so many bushels and a decimal of a bushel of shelled corn. If it be required to find the quantity of ear corn, substitute 8 for 4, and cut off one figure as before.

Example.—In a bulk of com in the ear measuring 12 feet long, 11 feet broad and 6 feet deep, there will be 316 bushels and 8-10ths of a bushel of shelled com, or 633 and 6-lOths bushels of ear corn, as:


The decimal 4 is used when the object is to find the quantity in shelled com, because that decimal is half of the decimal 8, and it requires two bushels of ear corn to make one of shelled com. In using these rules a half a bushel may be added for every hundred; that amount of ears results from the substitution of the decimals.

AMERICAN COTTON.—RUSSIAN PORTS. The Chamber of Commerce and Manufactures of Amsterdam has published a notice to the effect, that according to arrangements made by the emperor of Russia, in concert with the Danish government, American cotton, no matter under what flag, and coming from any European port excepting those of the Mediterranean, will be henceforth admitted into the Russian ports in the Baltic, without being furnished with clean bills of health, delivered by the Danish quarantine officers. The American origin of the cotton must be proved by the requisite certificates delivered by the Russian consuls in the ports from which it is consigned, or, in the absence of consuls, by certificates of the local authorities.

There are 67,935 engaged in agriculture, 1,382 in commerce, 17,706 in manufactures and trades, 497 in navigation of the ocean, 209 in navigation of lakes and rivers, 1,422 in the learned professions, 1,403 pensioners, 179 deaf and dumb, 154 blind, 177 insane and idiots at public charge, 308 insane and idiots at private charge, 2 universities and colleges with 430 students, 68 academies with 5,746 scholars, 2,110 common schools with 81,890 scholars. Only 927 persons over twenty years of age, who cannot read or write.

Colored persons—males, 249; females, 281; who are included in the foregoing total number.

The population of the state in 1800 was 183,858; in 1810,214,460; in 1820,244,161; in 1830, 269,633. The population in 1840 is 284,480. The gain in the ten years previous to 1830, was 24,152; the gain in the last ten years was only 14,848.

The increase in twenty-three manufacturing towns, viz: Exeter, Newmarket, Salem, Dover, Gilford, Meredith, Rochester, Somersworth, Concord, Hooksett, Northfield, Pittsfield, Goffstown, Manchester, Milford, Nashua, Petersborough, Fitzwilliam, Keene, Claremont, Wendell, Bristol and Littleton, is 15,055, being more than the entire increase of the state.

The increase of forty-four agricultural towns is 7,062.

Fifty-five towns present a diminution each of over fifty persons.

It may be remarked, that for a larger portion of the increase of the manufacturing towns, there will be a corresponding decrease in most of the towns surrounding them— going to show that the manufacturing villages engross the business and population of the towns in their vicinity.
