The undersinged have discharged their duty, by a careful examination of all the articles on exbibition in this class, and report as follows:

There was only one set of farm barness, but that was in every way worthy. One pair of hames-very superior.

The display of brushes--some very fine brushes, by Industrial School, but the best display was No. 7.

The committee were at some loss to decide upon gents' dress boots, but finally came to the o onclusion that No. 16 should have the premium, combining more utility and strength, with a high order of finish and skill in the manufacture. We wish, however, to state that No. 6 (fancy dress boots) cannot be too highly cominended as articles of taste and fancy skill. There were three entries of heavy boots, all good, but the best were No. 7. There was only one entry each of gents' dress shoes, congress gaiters, laidies’ gaiters, ladies' booties, and ladies' slippers, but these were all of such excellent workmanship and quality, that we did not hesitate to award the premiums offered.

There was one entry only of gents' suit of clothes a most excellent suit. We also commend Nos. 2, 3 and 4 under the head of suits of gents' clothing. No. 5 (miscellaneous) is a very ingenious and worthy article for the army, or travelors deprived of hotel or house accommodations. We highly recommend the boot and shoe pattern, No. 19, (miscellaneous) ; it must be a very useful article. The patent buckle (No. 34) we commend bigbly. (No. 31), brooms, an excel lent article.

Po the Awarding Committee on Cheese :

Gents: You are presented with twelve samples of cheese, to which your attention is called, and a careful examination respectfully solicited. Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, were made the 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th days of June, 1863. Number 12 was made the 21st day of July, 1862, from the milk of 80 cows, evening and mornings milk, with no addition of cream.


The evening's milk is strained into the vat, and the animal heat taken therefrom by pouring cold water into the water chamber of the vat, and setting tin holders filed with water into the milk.

What cream bas arisen during the night is applied into the steamer, and the morning's milk poured on to it. A fire is made in the heater and milk brought to a temperature of 84 degrees Enough rennet is then added to coagulate the milk and make it sufficiently firm to cut in 60 minutes. Then cut with a wire cutter into inch square blocks ; it then stands 20 minutes ; then work the curd carefully with the hands 20 minutes ; then take off a portion of the whey and start a fire in the heater; commence heating gradually, stirring carefully until the temperature reaches 94 degrees, then shut off the heat and cover the vat with a cloth and let it stand 60

minutes ; then take off some more whey, start the fire, and continue to work the curd with the hands until it is raised to a temperature of 104 degrees; cover with a cloth and let stand one hour, or until sufficiently cooked; then get the wbey off, and salt with Onondagua factory filled salt-twi pounds and four-tenths to the 100 gallons of milk; work the curd fine before putting to press. Press one day with two-inch wrought iron screws as hard as one man can turn with a lever four feet long. After taking from the press, grease and turn every day.


Kill the caif at five days old, when their stomachs are empty, salt them inside and out, and hang them up to dry. When one year old and dry, put one dozen into a crock, to which add salt and water, let stand until the strength is out, when it is fit for use.

To the questions propounded we answer as follows:
1. Improved natives.
2. limothy, red and white clover.

3. Long continued pa-turing exhausts the soil. Rotation of the grasses with other crops rightly managed will improve it.

4. Wheu cheese commands 8 cents per pound, dairy lands may be used profitably at $35 per acre.

5. The proper temperature of a roym for curing cheese should range from 75 to 80 degrees. A much higher temperature would cause too rapid a state of fermentation ; causing a sharp pungent flavor and bitterness. Ata much lower temperature fermentation is too slow, causing the whey or moisture to remain too long in the cheese, causing a sourish bitterness.

S. E. & H. N. CARRTER,

To the Commitlee of Judges on Cheese at the Ohio State Fair, 1863:

GENTS : The cb: ese offered for exhibition are a sample of 1,200 cheese of an uniform size and quali y, manufactured by me during the present season, at the Barlett Dairy, in Munson, Geauga county, vbio.


The milk at night is received and put into tin vats, set inside of wooden opes, and a stream of cold spring water set running through the wooden vats to keep the milk cool and sweet, and kept running all night.

In the morning the milk is again received and put in with the last night's milk, the temperature of the wbule raised to 82 deg. Fahr.; coloring is added sufficient to produce a rich cream color, and sufficient renuet to produce perfect coagulatiou io one hour. The whole mass is then stirred until it begins to thickeo, and is then left until the curd is sufficiently formed to commence working. It is then cut up very fine, heat raised to 88 degrees, thoroughly stirred 20 minutes, and tben allowed to stand for the curd to settle, the whey is then drawn ott' duwn to the curd ; the curd is then fially broken up and the heat raised to 98 degrees ; it is tben kept stirred for an har, so that it shall not pack together, and then allowed to stand until the curd is done, the heat muntained at 98 degrees all the while. When the curd is finished and firm, it is dipped into a draiver, where the whey runs off, and three pounds of salt to every 100 gallous of milk is adu d, and thoroughly worked in and incorporated with the curd. It is then put into the press, pressed iwo bours, taken out, turned over, and a cloth bandage put ou, replaced in the press a « left until the next day. It is then taken from the press and rubbed over with grease, carried to the curing rooms and placed on the ranges, turned and rubbed every day until cured.
