Moral Suasion on a Ram.—When a friend of ours, whom we call Agricola, was a boy, he lived on a farm in Berkshire county, the owner of which was troubled by a dug Wolf. The cur killed his sheep knowing, poi baps, that he was conscientiously Opposed to caiital punishment, aud he could devise no means to prevent it. "I can break him ol it," said Agricola, '-if you will give me leave." "Thou art permitted," said the bouest farmer; and wc will let Agriwla tell the story in his owu words. "There was a ram on the farm," said -Agricola, " as notorious for butting as Wolf was for sheep stealing, and who stood in as much need of moral suasion as the dog." "I abut Wolf up iu the barn with this old follow, and the consequence waa lhat the dog never looked ;i h;vvji ii; tli.) I'dco agaiu. The nun broke every bone in his body.)literally. Wonderfully uplifted was the ram aforesaid, by his exploit; his insolence became intolerable; he was sure to pitch on whomsoever went nigh him. " 'I'll fix him,' said I—and bo I did. I rigged an iron crowbar out ol a -hole in the bam, point foremost. apid put au old bat on the end of it.— you can't always tell, when you see a hat, whether there is a head in it or not; how then should a ram? Aries made at it full butt, and being a good marksman from long practice, the bar broke in between hie borne and oatne out under his tail. Thin little admouition effectually cured him of buttiug. S.

RUSSELLS PATENT. FRANCIS MELLUS, HAVING purchased the patent right of the above valuable invention, for the purpose of supply- *u"lhe counties of Los Angeles, Sun Bernardino ;itid Sau Diego, is now prepared ty execute all orders with which he may be favored. The public are aware tliat it has been the study of scientific men, architects and builders, formally yt to discover au article for Roofing purposes, that will withstand sudden changes ol climate, be impervious to water, and of sure protection against fire. The inventor of this roofing labored many years to coin- 'tiuo articles which would answer the above purpose nud obviate the difficulties of rust and decay attendant upon till and shingles, and the destruction by U10 sun and fro3t of the various compositions used lor rooting. This he succeeded in doing, and now, after six years of the severest trial we would invite the careful attention of all interested in such matters, believing tliat they will be fully convinced of its practicaf value both for durability and economy, in which respects we believe that its equal is not at present known. This roofing cau readily be applied to roofs of every description, either steep or Hat, and can be put on over shingles or tin, being much cheap- or than the first aud at half the cost of the latter. Two coats of the mastic put on over an old leaky tin roof, will m ike it as good as new at one-third of the cost. Iu preparing this roofing a heavy drilling or canvass is used, which is thoroughly saturated with a. perfectly water-proof preparation, alter which it receives a thick coating, upon both sides, of the Hour of soapstune, which sets into the texture of the canvass, and gives it a firm body, making it very elastic and durable. After the canvass, as prepared, is put upon thereof, another coating ol mastic, which is thoroughly tilled with sand, is given it, making it fireproof iu every respect. Ity exposure, this coating becomes firm aud solid, giving you a roof that cau be walked upon with perfect impunity, and ae durable as anything known; and we do most candidly and unhesitatingly believe, far superior to anything of the kiud yet discovered; and alter a severe test of many years, stand as reliable aud good us when Grit put on, without change or decay. All that we ask is, that a careful examination may be given it, and we feel convinced that it will bear all the recommendation which wo offer of it. Annexed we give you the names of some of the persons using this roofing, and to whom we are at libei ty to refer: RKFERlCVCF.e.

Oct. 24tb, 1868, attendance was not commensurate therewith. From the reports of the various committees of this society, and the Fruit Growers Convention, we take the following extracts :— TEARS. The committee on pears report, that many 0' the summer pears, the Bartlett included, were ov er-ripe and the true flavor could not be diaccrned' But anything superior to the specimen of Bartlett pears exhibited by Mr. Gould, we do uot remember to have tasted. We have lound no pear that can compare with this variety of summer fruit. It is worthy of note that tho specimens of Bartlett pear from Smith's gardens, at Sjcrameuto, are le?s ripe than those from the hay districts—say, ten days later. And tho same pear is just enter iug our markets from Los Angeles (400 miles south) in barely ripe condition. Fall pears are not ripe, which makes judgment difficult of determination. That tho Seckle is properly a fall pear, is made certa'iu by the fact, that it is at this time (September d, 1S5*J,) unripe' Tlie Louis Bonne appears to be the second hest, after the Seckle ; hut it is apt to decay at the centre, unless it be plucked before maturity, aud allowed to ripen off the tree. Tbis remark probably applies to lall pears generally. The winter pear presents much more difficulty ; not any being far enough matured to afford any lair judgment. Besides, we have as yet uo experience that covers more than a fractional number of tlie varieties exhibited. The Easter Beurre aud the Winter Neliis appear to he the most fully proven as to keeping realities and to flavor coiubiued. WILL CALIKOKNIA API'LLS KEEP ? This question, so interesting to our fruit men, is now answered in tbe affirmative. Mr. Wadswortb, editor of tho Culturist, and originally impressed with tbe idea that our apples would not keep, presents specimens of apples grown hy Charles Mock, of Petaluma, iu 1858— whicb are now iu a state of good preservation. There aro three varieties—viz: first, the Ilall, second, the Green Skin, or Green Cheese; third, the Carolina Greening—all being of South Carolina stock. Dr. Haile, of Alameda, exhibits specimens ol what looks like the Green Newtown Pippin (and so we call it) grown on his ground in 1S58, aud now iu sound condition. Mr, Osborn, of Napa, and Mr. Hill, of Sonoma" have each preserved the Newtowu Pippiu of 1858 to the cud of May, 1859. It Is earnestly desired that other public spirited ments. From experience so far realized, we commend to notice tbe cultivation of several varieties of apples (aud of other fruits) which are being introduced, natives of South Carolina aud Georgia- It appears tbat trees from those latitudes east are better adapted to the climate of California for late keeping than trees from lhe more northern Slates. Bernard Fox, of Sauta Clara, bas raised in his nurseries some lifly varieties of southern apple trees, hearing many names quite unknown to us, being mostly seedlings from the Indian settlements. As our fruit increases, it behooves growers to look to their stock. Trees which this year are in good market standing may be supplanted in public favor a few years hence. It is the design of Ihis report lo serve the iutere.Lt of growers by giving publicity to whatever new suggestions seem to bear upon their interests. The experience of every grower seems to unite in recommending the selection of nursery trees of one year's growth Irom the graft in preference to older plants. The mutilation of root is proportionately less in transplanting, and the future hardihood of the tree will repay tbe apparent delay of growth—which is ouly apparent, as the third year will rrove.

Second Day, Friday, Sept. 9.—TLe convention met at i o'clock, Mr. Osborne, President, iu the chair. The subject of grapes was then taken up, and the following varieties recommended for cultivation : Black Hamburg, Wilmot's Black Hamburg, Black Cluster, Violet Chasselas, Mclieady's, Early White, Jocelyn, St. Alhaus, Victoria Hamburg, Chasselas, Foutainbleau, White Muscat ol Alexandria, Cannon Hall Muscat (for some localities.) Catawba—Catawba was placed on the list for further trial, as it haa uot proveu worthy of general cultivation. California Mission—The old grape of California has fallen in Ihe estimation of fruit growers, as so many varieties of foreign grapes prove superior. Itis therefore recommended lbe culture iu some localities, and not fur general cultivation. WINE UllAl'ES. Mr. Delma3, of San Jose, recommended the following species of grapes as the best for wine, the fiuiling ol winch have beeu tried by him during the last three or four years, and are adopted by the society, from their knowledge of his culture. As every piece of information in regard to the wine business possesses no secondary interest, we give the list entire : For Red Wine—Black Burgundy, Black Hum- burg, Black Bluster, Balzac, Barbaronx. Cabinet, Charbonneau. Dischia Gris, Large Rosa oi Peru, Gros noir d'Espagne, or Large Black 6'pauis-h. Gros noir de Guislin, cr Large Pluck Guislin, Lachrima Christi (Tearsof Christ), Mfllvoisleide Berlin Mennier Noir. Merienn Noir. Mansm. Noir Doux (Black Sweet), OeuilladeNoir(BluckGlauce).

In a few minutes, but I'd wait till morning for a companion, and give him a seat in my buggy. Enough said, I'll go. And thus at an unexpected moment the good opportunity offered, and I was ready. I packed my saddle-bags in good old itinerant fashion, bid my friends good bye, slept, awoke, and was ready for niy journey. At an early hour we were on our way. The road is smooth, the air cool, the horses fy-Ai. lhe knogy light, and my travelling companion Is a scholar, well versed in ancient and modern literature, has been ou this frontier from the be ning, i3 thoroughly acquainted witb the mam and customs of the people, has seen the elephant on all sides, aud, like all men of his claa's, is communicative, aud seems never to tiro iu rei ting his adventures and answering your question so I am '-thoroughly furnished" for a pleasai trip. The country through which we traveled is sui-geueris. Hero are no bold mountains, no gently rising hills, no broad prairies stretching beyond the reach of the eye, no msjestic forests overarching the road but a level counlry thickly set with low scrubby trees, scraggy bushes and all varieties of the cactus. This may well be considered a thorny laud, for almost everything has a thorn; hut nowithatanding lhe growth of the conn" try, the soil is rich, and where there ia rain, produces a variety of crops in great abundance and with lit.le labor. Our seasons are so long that two crops will mature in oue year; but there ia so little rain here lhat people cannot depend upou tlieir farms for a living unless they irrigate tlieir lauds, hut this can be easily done. The land is cheap and productive on the Rio Grande, and thousands who are almost starving on the wcrn out hills of the old Stales would do well to seek homes upon tliis frontier. Itisahcaltby country, aud never molested by ludians. I heartily wish that enterprising upright Americans would come aud settle up this whole valley. They would give a new tone to our society, aud sow more than one kind ol goodseed. But while wo have talked ol the appearance and productiveness of the country, tlie coolness of the air has goue, the sun has mounted to zenith, and now makes dusty viejentes and panting caballo glad to see a raneho, aud at the lirst opening we turn in. And now that we are in the shade, (how pleasant it is) and while we arc waiting for dinner (don't think you'll hear anything more of the dinner, for if J could ask no questions *or stomach's sake, I'll tell no tales for con- ;-cienCi! sake) we will havo a tale about the ranchos. whic.lt ine larms on which several families live, and resemble small villages. Generally | there arc Irom twentymo a huudred persons on a lancho. The fields are fence wilh brush, and tho houses are made ot poles and crass or carl. The frames of the houses ure first mads of poles and then wealherboaided with cane or long grass, thongs of raw-hide being used instead of nails. The houses or jaocols (pro hark-ols) thus made are plastered inside with mud and covered with grass or palmetto. A dozen or two of these rude buildings clustered together in or uear the brush-enclosed lit'ld are called a raneho, aud tbere are many of these ranches on both sides of the Rio Grande, and ihey are all very much alike, but there is a remarkable addition to some of them. At a convenient place there is a loug broad arbor covered with grass or cane and surrounded with seals. At one end of this arbor there isa fixture somewhat like a pulpit. But the arbor, what ts it for? It is for a fandango. Here men and women, old and young, often meet and spend lhe whole night in lively Mexican dances. And the pulpit fixture, what is il* It is the bar, where are kept liquors and viauds Lo refresh and inspirit faudaugeros. But I cauuot teli you all the thoughts aud thco" ries that passed through my mind duiiug the trip. A trip up the Rio Grande will make auy earnest man Ihink much and feel more. At almost every raneho one cau liud material fur a long letter, so peculiar and strange are the manners and customs of Lhe Mexicans; but I must try to close this letter. Atouerauch where we stopped for dinner, we fouud some white people, some black and some neither the one nor the other, but they all seemed to understand English. 1 bad never heard of them before, but tbey were huinau beings and Christ died fur ihem. They had uot heard a sermon lor years and perhaps would uot for yenrs tOCOme. My heart yearned for them, and I rmiember the great commission, "preach the Gospel to every creature," and so I told my fried if he would wait I would pr each. He said lie would gladly do so- In a short time hveuly-iive caine together. 1 took for text the lllh and 12th verses ot the sec- [ ond chapter Of Tilu.;, and preached as earnestly as as I could, aud at lhe conclusion oi the service I baptised three children, by the request ofthe patriarch of the raneho, who had beeu a melhodist in Alabama before comini; out west.— One mau told me he had uot heard a seimon for twenty-four years.

Terry, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of this State. The difficulty bad beeu long pending, and aa the whole matter has already been bruited abroad, wo decliuo going over the ground. The parties named met yesterday morning, about a quarter before seven o'clock, la n beautiful ravine ou the raneho ot Mr. Davis. in .San M.ueo county, two miles from the dividing line between the counties of'Sau Mateo and Sau Frauol800. They were accompanied by their seconds, surgeons, and about seventy frieuds. The ground was measured oil, the principals posted, and the word given. Tho weapons wero regular dueling pistols, Lhe distance ten paces, and the tiring to be done between tho word "lire" and the word'-two." At lhe first lire Mr. Broderick received hia antagonist's ball iu Lhe right breast, about two inches above tho nipple, while his ball struck the ground a few feet in advance ol Judgu Jerry. Mr. Broderick reeled aud fell, when Judge Terry left the ground with his friends. Mr. Broderick was couveyed to the bona of Mr. Lconidaa Haskell, at black point, where he received erery possible attention. At eight o'clock last night, wu learned Lhat the ball had beeu extracted. It wae found lodged under the skin on the outside of lhe left shoulder, near the poiut of aiticulaliou. Tho ball had entered the right breast at the point above named, when it took an outward course, passing through the muscles, shattering the sternum, or breast bone, and wounding the left lung, but how much has not been ascertained. It was tho opinion of llie surgeons, at tliat hour, that unless tbo left lung was badly injured, tho wound was not necessarily mortal. Mr. Broderick wus a good deal easier at eight o'clock.-— Herald, llth. Front San Jitnn. The Victoria papers contain but litle news from San Juan.

Moral Suasion on a Ram.—When a friend of
ours, whom we call Agricola, was a boy, he lived
on a farm in Berkshire county, the owner of which
was troubled by a dug Wolf. The cur killed his
sheep knowing, poi baps, that he was conscientiously Opposed to caiital punishment, aud he could
devise no means to prevent it. "I can break him
ol it," said Agricola, '-if you will give me leave."
"Thou art permitted," said the bouest farmer;
and wc will let Agriwla tell the story in his owu
words. "There was a ram on the farm," said -Agricola, " as notorious for butting as Wolf was for
sheep stealing, and who stood in as much need of
moral suasion as the dog."
"I abut Wolf up iu the barn with this old follow,
and the consequence waa lhat the dog never looked ;i h;vvji ii; tli.) I'dco agaiu. The nun broke every bone in his body.)literally. Wonderfully uplifted was the ram aforesaid, by his exploit; his
insolence became intolerable; he was sure to pitch
on whomsoever went nigh him.
" 'I'll fix him,' said I—and bo I did. I rigged
an iron crowbar out ol a -hole in the bam, point
foremost. apid put au old bat on the end of it.—
