ON FATTENING PORK.
MR. TucKen.--The fatening of pork
has became Hn important bu-sites with
the fartmer, by reason of' its int insic value
aid great usellulness in every family, it be
ing a substitute for alnost every other kind c
of ment. It never cloys. and never goes
nait of liashi'n: hence the Urentt antd in- .
caiang demand, high price, and reaty ,
nareket. Ahatut ten yeatrs ago te tmediumj
price was three dolbars petr huandred, anid
the ereatest pa'rt was fattened on corn unt- t
grounad andi unicoioked. Fromr that time ,
ihe ;arice has gradlually improved, under
increasing faeilities for fatitening, until nowv
the price is 8,U() per huntdred, ad it is
maade mnostly without corni. Potatoes honi
ed, and peas raw for a while, constitaute
he main food, ro which latterly have been
added pumnpkins, apples, and barley, with P
an impraoved process in feaeding by b'oilinag h
steanming anad grinadinig, hy whicha the gnan
tity has mucht increased, and the busintess V
heen mnade more profitabale. The improv
ed breed of hogs has also hail its influtence P
itn moving the farmter to pay attention to ti
feeding andl t-o advanc'e the quality and s
qaantity of hi. pork, unitil no part of the t
farmter's business is mnore advant ageous.
Good pork mtay he hadi on raw apples ti
alone-pornpkins, apples, and potatoes, II
steamed or hoiled atnd mashed together,
or with atiy or till of these, with barley,
oat or pea meal mixed with thean; baut "
much go rd pork has been made itn this E
county (Onondoga) without the meal.- at
T have some little experience in feedling 0
pirk, atnd will slate it. I commencedl l
farming where I now reside, in 1827, and a
ntial three years ago, I fattened fr'oam 60
to 90 hogs a year. anda mostly on corn; e'
whetn pot atoes were fed, they were boiled
and fed wvith corn meal. I took the price e
along as the market olf't-ed : andta however U
lowv ihe price of lands, labor, cornt and
store hogs as wvell as pork, it was rather a "
lean business. When, three years ago, e
my corn was killed by the frost, and rot
ted on the ground, so that T did not harvest st
a baushel, potatoes were worth .50 cents si
per husahel at the cellar, antd all my cosarse
grain I wvanted for my cattlo, Iconchuded ,ei
to feed the btogs that I had otn hand, ten i5
oly, on apples, of which I had plenty.
They had had thte raun of atn orchard anid .Cl
uniu field and were in road condition... E
shut them up about the 20th of sept.
ad gave them in charge of a trusty old
mtlnlsh domestic. [ie dI them with raw
pplel, brought as wanted, either sweet

lops fiomn the kitchen, as all that they
ad, except about ten bushels of sereen

Iways been kept itn high order. I butch

'hey weighed from 260 to 314 potunds.
'art I sold at SS per hundred, and the re
iainder. aliout half, I put up for fatmily
se. The pork was hard, fine flavor and
4it as well as any I have had however
rhe next year I had some goodi and
lore poor corn. I fed ny hog, on apples
nid1 poattoes liled, the soft corn, and the
itter part f the time added harley meal
the boiled swill. The pork was tnot as
nod as biefore, nor did they weigh as
