WESTERN LITERATURE.

Beatty on Agriculture.—This valuable treatise has been before the public for several years, and we have frequently regretted, since we have commenced our labors as journalists, that we could not find a copy for sale in St. Louis. This fact has sometimes caused us to doubt of the success of our own enterprise, for it occurred to us that if a work of so much merit, and of such general utility was not in demand, that our prospects were rather gloomy.

It is possible, however, the edition may have been exhausted; if so, we hope the author will issue another, or publish a work on the same subject, embracing a larger range of topics. With the most thorough experience in the practical details, Judge Beatty has combined the science connected with agriculture, and is capable of producing a better and more useful work for the western agriculturalist, than perhaps any other individual in the country. We beg to recommend the book to every farmer, and trust that arrangements will be made to extend its circulation in the west,

The Priest of the Black Cross, a Tale of the Sea : by Capt. T. Ware Gibson; published at the Great Westoffice, Cincinnati.

We are indebted to the politeness of the publishers for a copy of this work, but as we have not had time to read it, we can take no further notice of it at present. We intend at some future time to give our readers an article on the subject of western literature, in which we hope to do justice to both authors and readers.

FENCES FOR THE PRAIRIES. A new kind of fence is coming into use in northern Illinois. The fence consists of strips of sheet iron, one inch and a half wide, prepared in oil, so as to resist the action of the weather, and painted white. These strips are nailed to posts in the ground, two rods apart, with a perpendicular strip of board every other rod. The whole cost per rod, is estimated at less than thirty cents; and it is superior to wire as it does not sag, and being painted white, cattle will see it and not run against it.-Brunswicker.
