Forever freed from grief and luilu
So sweet otornal rest.
Improvement of Meadows.
Viip.n we consider tho Inrgo propor
tion of meadow land which lias for ages
received tlio wasli from tho cattle on a
thousand hill, and ia still of little value,
wo find this to he iv subject of groat im
portance, especially to tho fanners of
Having had ten years' experience with
ten acres of tho Cogiiichang Swamp,
containing over a thousand acres, situa
ted In tho towns of Durham nnd Mitlt 1 -
fleld, Connecticut, I send you the result,
knowing that uotigiit wit is the best.
Tho soil of this meadow Is a mixtures of
flay and sand. The .surface is usually
covered with water In tho Winter, and
frequently in tho Summer; tho produce
in Its natural state fs btftrushes, skunk
cabbage, and coarso meadow herbage.
The previous owner of my lot, acting
on tho wrong theory that high cultiva
tion and manuring for several years
would bring tho soil into a better condi
tion for grass, had half tho lot ploughed ,
tsitbsoilcd,hlghly manured, planted with
corn, potatoes,and other crops, which did
well tho first year, while tho old turf re
mained. The second year there was a fall
ing oft", and tlio third year it full into my
hands. Not knowing what else to do, I
followed my predecessor's example, and
itad itploughed,working in as much good
fiarnyard manure as possible, and plant
1. This was dono so late, on account of
tho condition of tho land, that tho hoeing
came in haying-timo, and tho July sun
fo baked tho surface that tho cultivator
broke it up in hard cakes ; so that it was
about as easy to earth up a hill of corn
as it would have been in one of the
neighboring trap rock mountains. The
crops hardly paid for tho labor. Tho
next Spring I had the piece sowed with
oats, grass, and coarso bone. Tho weeds
camo in so that tho oats wero hardly
worth harvesting, and tlio grass was
kept out for several years.
I then had tho other half of the piece,
which was in its natural state, ploughed
iu September with a Nourno No. ".0
plough, throwing it up iu beds two rodrf
wido, and turning furrows eighteen in
ches wide and nino inches deep, covering
tlio bogs completely. 1 then tried a
fctjuare-tooth harrow. This tore tlio sod
in pieces, and did much more harm than
good. 1 then tried asteel-tooth cultiva
tor. This did well, but a Share's har
row did as well, and much faster. I had
it harrowed lengthwiso of tlio beds,
working in twenty bushels of coarso
bono to tho acre. I then had tho dead
furrows cleaned out, and tho edges of
tho beds rounded olT. 1 then had it
feceded with timothy and red-top rolled
in, and tho following Spring clover. I
had a fine crop of clean grass tho first
season, tho land being worth double tho
other half tho lot, which had received
threo years' cultivation and sixty loads
of tho best manure to the acre, besides a
largo amount of fertilizers.
Tho grass continued good for three or
four years, when it run out, coarso grass
coming in. I then had a piece ploughed
again with a common plough, and har
rowed in about eight loads of good
manure to tho acre, and seeded as before.
I took at tho same tlmo a timber piece
and had it top-drcscd with tlio same
amount of manure, and nothing else.
This last piece did much better than the
ilrst, tho timothy standing so thick and
oven that it looked like a piece of grain
. at a distance.
Tlio following is tho result of my ex
perience : 1st, that this soil should never
Taj exposed in Summer ; 2d, that no
amount of manure will compensate for
tho loss of tlio turf by repeated cultiva
tion j Sd, that one load of immuro as a
top-dressing is worth two loads harrow
ed in after ploughing, or four loads
ploughed In that thoscedlng from sim
ply top-dressing Is much better than can
I have slneo top-dressed each part with
about eight loads of barnyard manure
to tho aero every four years, applied Just
before tho Full rains. I get a ton and a
half of flnohay to tho acre, worth about
twenty dollars an aero more than tlio
natural grass on tho adjoining land,
which Iscqually as good land. Thoprollt
pays for tho Improvement every two
years, and tho lot was never us good as
at this time.
Now, supposo that a thousand acres of
tho adjoining land was improved in tho
Kimo way, thero would bo a gain of
twenty thousand dollars n year in tills
ono tract of land, and yet thero are
bcores of men who witness my Improve
ment every year, and still allow their
land to produco coarso grass, worth from
ono to threo dollars an ncre, whllo they
are travelling round seeking Investment
for surplus funds. 11. II'. Matheioon,

To Destroy the Hop Insect.
l- W. Collins, nn experienced culti
vator of hops, writes to tho American
Farmer that u decoction of tobacco,
strong enough to kill ticks on sheep, or
the bhto lousoon colts or calves, is Direct
ive against vermin on hop vines. Others
use strong soapsuds made with toft soap
and tobacco water, with one pound of
copperas to every llvo gallons of the
liquor. Tills wash is applied to the vino
when trained on tho horizontal plan, by
a syringe, or, If on the plan of long
poles, with a force pump, or garden en
gine pump, to throw tlio liquid with
force against the underside of the leaves,
as the louse Is always thero first. The
writer adds! " It Is of great Importance
to tho hop-grower to secure a large crop
this year, as even if tho crop Is a full
one, the price must be high, nnd If It
should bo a partial failure, tlio prlco
will rise very high. There aru two causes
for this: 1st, tire rapid increase In the
demand for hops; and I'd, tho destruc
tion of hop yards the past season, owing
to cutting the vine at picking, as Is prac
tised in yards on long poles. Tho vines
were cut early, and the open Winter left
the roots, after a mo4 severe drain upon
their vitality by loss of sap, exposed
throughout its wholo extent to severe
frost. Jinny yards ko treated wero
wholly destroyed, or so Injured as to
cause them to bo ploughed up this

The Goblin's Chestnuts.
litTTi.K Gi'.oitm: was trudging along
witli a great bushel-basket slung at his
back, a market-basket on each arm, two
smaller baskets In tho bushel-basket,
and tho least basket of them all slung
about ills neck.
George was bare-footed ; George shlv
ered, for his Jacket was very old, and
tho October morning wns cold as well
as bright. George was hungry. Oat
meal, with butter and salt, may be all
very well, but oatmeal for breakfast,
oatmeal for dinner, and nothing for sup
per, every day in the week, is not good
growing material for little boys; and
George was hungry nearly half tho time.
And, dually, Georgo was very sorry at
heart, for his mother was a widow. She
had been ill that Summer, and could
not do as much spinning and sewing as
usual. Consequently, she was not ready
with her rent ; and Mr. Dawson, their
landlord, was a hard man, just the fob
low to turn Georgo and his mother out
of doors, and keep their one little bed
Georgo was going to Squire Dawson's
Woods to gather chestnuts ; not for him
self, but for Squire Dawson. He was to
till tho bushel-basket, tho two smaller
ba.-kots in it, and the two market-bas
kets, for Squire Dawson ; and that least
basket of all, hanging about his neck,
he might till for himself and take home
to his mother as his wages. That was a
very mean bargain ; but, then, theSquire
was a mean man, and had grown rich iu
a mean way, you - ee.
There were plenty of che-luuts lying
on tlio ground, for a great wind had
been thrashing the old trees, and the
ground was thick with the brown-look
ing nuts ; but the wind, having thrashed
tho trees, thought, it lino. fun to thrash
Georgo also, and it blew his hat oh", and
his hair in his eyes, and Happed his jack
et about, and found its way in under it,
and pinched Ids nose and his lingers,
as if it had been Jack Frost himself.
"What a bitter cold wind!" saitl
George to himself, with a shiver.
"That's so," rehired a voice from
behind the tree. "Ho spent tho night
with mo; and we Goblins think we
know how to keep warm, but he nearly
frozo us out. I told tho old fellow he
had his Winter cap on by mistake."
"Kb? What!" said Georgo to him
self; and getting up from his knees,
looked carefully all about him, but see
ing nothing, concluded he had thought
all that. " Hut then it is very curious I
should think of such a thing," ho said
" "Why don't you look where I am?"
said the old voico again. "If I had
been a poodle I would have bitten you
And sure enough, thero on a stone,
just iu front of hlni, sat a little brown
thing, as brown as a chestnut, only it
hud a race like a man, nnd was buttoned
In a thick overcoat up to Its chin, as It
sat on a btone, smoking a little short
" I have been watching you fill your
baskets," said this queer object, with a
nod. " You will have a heavy basket to
carry homo for yourself. How you will
ever get It homo I don't see. I should
think It would hold very nearly a quart
of nuts. There will bo enough to last
you and your mother all tho Winter, I
" I don't eo why you should mako so
much fun," answered George, a little
provoked. , " A few nuts are better than
none, and my mother is very fond of
them. I am euro we have littlo enough
to bo glad of anything, no matter how
"You littlo silly l" said tho Goblin.
" Why don't you fill tho bushel basket
full, and carry it homo? Who would
know It? Take a cut across tho fields,
and who Is there to see you?"
"That Is stealing," said George, nnd
went back to his work without another
He thought that thlsmnst bo u wicked
Goblin, since ho was urging him to
steal, and felt a little afraid.
"Hut, then, if I do right, ho surely
cannot hurt me," said George to himself,
and worked away stoutly.
"If I were not too lazy, I would help
you," Hold tho Goblin, as Georgo lifted
tho great bushel-basket. " liut It is so
much pleasanter kicking tip your heels
Iu tlio sun than tugging and straining at
" Thank you for nothing," answered
George, who began to think this was a
sneaking sort of a Goblin, nnd heartllv
hoped that ho would have taken hiimclf
oil" by tho tlmo that ho camo back after
his other baskets. Hut no, there ho was,
lolling in tlio sun, and smoking Ids pipei
and watching George carry off each'
basket, as If ho had never seen a boy
picking chestnuts before. At last George
came to his own littlo basket.
"Stop a moment," said tho Goblin,
and pulled threo chestnuts out of his
pocket. " 1 lore are threo mits from my
own chestnut-tree. Take them homo to
your mother, and seo which sho likes
best the Squire's nuts or mine."
"Why, ho is a mean Goblin, too,
thought George. "Ho Is worse than
Still he put tho nuts in his pocket;
and when lie had told tho story to his
mother, sho was at once curious to try
them. Georgo peeled ono of the nuts at
"How do you do?" said a littlo man,
stepping out; "tho Goblin has sent mo
here to cut your wood, mend your
fences, mako your garden, and bo your
And, shouldering his nxo, ho went
out Into tho forest, where they heard
him hacking and bowing nt tho trees.
" Quick, quick 1" said George, " let us
seo what is In tho other two;" nnd ho
began peeling away, laughing all tho
" What do you mako a body's head
ring so for?" said a littlo woman, step
ping out with a spinning-wheel and be
ginning to spin. " If you had sent mo
out of my senses with your clatter,, It
would havo been your loss ; for the Gob
tin sent me to spin and sew for you, and
be your servant."
And setting up her wheel, she began
to spin. George wns now in such a Hut
ter, between curiosity and impatience,
that ho could hardly crack the third at
all ; but as It Hew open, both ho and his
mother screamed outright, for there
was a great, long purse, full of gold."
"That will pay tlio rent," said the
" And buy you a shawl and a gown."
"And you a jacket and a coat, and
"And a cow "
" And another bed"
" And send you to school"
" And get you some tea that you like
so ; but, dear me, to think that 1 never
thanked tlio Goblin."
"He! he! he!" tittered the Goblin,
peeping at them from the chimney.
