              GREAT YIELD. Mr. Joshua Jewett of this town informs us that he has raised
          this present season, on a piece of ground containing eight square rods or one
          twentieth of an acre fifty-six  bushels of Ruta Baga turnips, equal to 3,584 pounds
          weight.  This is in proportion of  1,120 bushels of 71,680 lbs. to the acre. This at
          20 cents per bushel would yield $224 as the product of a single acre of ground.
          Such a crop deserves a premium.  The Ruta Baga is one of the most valuable and
          profitable crops the farmer can raise. [Somerset Journal]

          launched from the yard of Rufus C. Counce in Thomaston, on the 3rd inst.

         of Factory Island, where he has been exhibited "free gratis for nothing" to all who
         who would take the trouble to look at him.  He is the fin-back species.
