INDIAN CottN ON WORN OUT LAND.--In
some parts or our country i bt.ms.heen said it
ost more to raise indian Corn than it was
worth, and the notion prevailed tat the
land tmus, be strong, highly manured. well
ploutthed and hured. or it would not produce
!half te value of the labor bestowed upon
it. It can be proved that worn out fields as
they are called. can be made available even
without manure,as an experiment ol the olid
lowing kind has proved. Take the lielm as
it lays, break it with a plough having n
sharp conler, anl a share about the four th
the siz and weight of the common plough
phares, a furrow hoard which will follow the
goulher edgeways. Iurnling the furrows over
in somewhat a spiral formr. Wih thiis
plough which requires only a single horse.
plough a furow through the whole length
of the field, and return with the plough on
the side next to which the Furrow was iturned,
throwimag up another fia rmw gainst the
tsi. At Iuor reet from this, iplough anoth
dr furrow in the samie manner; and so in,
leavmrg a space of four li-t between the
dunle furrow s through the whole lengti an
tie ield. Upon ohese double furrows pant
potatoes, leaving a space of four feet be
tiveen each hill. A horse, with two hov
'ill plough fnel plini iwo and a hell' acres
in- a day. 1 hen the potatoes comae (Iy amt
want tending. two boys with a horse and
plough will turn another furrow, of the u
ploughed ground towards the potatoes on
each side, and tress thema with their hues in
ant day, At half hilling. repeat and the
vthole field will be ploughed. At hilling.
the field mrust be Bross ploughed, the earth
thrown towards the crop each way, a d
diessed with the hoe. By this mode, two
apres and a half to every horse and two
ti jys. ean be completely tilled in tour days,
144ile in the common way of managing
p upd, the labor of a man a boy and Iwo
e - spring fl
lowifng plough between every two rows of
the old potore hills, Iwo inrrows. % hich are
to be throwni one against the other, and
plaim your corn u pona thena ithout any Ma
nure. The ploughmg and planting as be
fore, can be done by the same force; in the
same lime and at the same rate by all your
force. " My corn was husbanded in the
same manner as my potatoes were the year
before. A field on the other side of the
ecase, murch of the description and size of
mite, (upon which I experimente'd) was
two days and a halfin ploughing and plant
ing, with one man. a boy, and two horses,
a ith a comon plough. 'T'his fiel was plant
ed the saime day as mine, and was well
dunged. My corn made its appearance
about two days before my neighbors', rip
ened about a fimr: night earlier, antd I had the
largest crop. I coninued to plant corn in
the samte land. aet ween the old hills as be
fore mentioned, H iihout carrying On it any
manire-the crops increasing about two
bushels every year.
I shrewdly suspect there is no part of the
worbd where so many old fields lay out a
dead lax to their owners, which with proper
indus'ry and tillage, would yiehl a profit.
The foregoing is anr experiment without

A FORTUNATE MIsTAKE.-The acciden -
tal circumstances which frequently bring
medical men into extensive practice, or that
notoriety which may lead to it, is truly
curious. It is well known that a most emi
nent English practietioner owed all his sue
eess to his having been in a state of intoxi
cation. Disappointed on his first arrival
in London, he sought comfort in a neigh -
boring tavern, whence the servant of his
lodging went to fetch him one evening, after
it heavy potation, to see a certain Countess
The high sounding title of this unexpected
patient tended not a little to increase his
exciteutet. lie followed the liveried toot
man as well as he could, and was ushered
it silence into a noble mansion, it here her
ladyship's woman waited to conduct hin
immediately to her mistress' room; her
agitalion must probably preventing her
from perceiving the doctor's state. lie
was led ito a splendid bed chamber, and
went through the routine practice of pulse
feeling, &c. and proceeded to the table to
wriite a prescription, which in all probabili
ty w ould have been mechanically correct;
but here his powers failed him. lI v.ain he
strove to trace the salutary character-, until
w earied in his attempt, he threw down the
pen, and exclaiming,' Drunk by G- !'
-made the best of his way out of the house.
To la safter he - as not a little surprised
by receiving a letter frotm the la'ly and a
check tor 1001. and the promoiseofher fani
ly and friends's patronage, if lie would oh
serve the strictest secrecy of the state he
found her in. ''hie fact was, that the Coun
tess had been indulging in brandy and
laudanunt which er Abigail had procured
;ir her, and was in the very condition which
the doctor had so frankly applied to him
A few days ago a servant, wishing to de
