"Let idle Ambition her baubles pursue,
While Wi-dom looks down with disdain,
The home of the farmer has charmi ever new,
Where health, peace and competence reign."
The " Soil of the South."
By the last (January) number of this
Journal, we observe that the editorial de
partment has been much strengthened by
an additional chair for Mr. Wx. H. CuAX
BERs. The elder CHAMBER -, who has given
great popularity to the " Soil," still exercises
a supervisory care over the practical depart.
ment. Conjointly, their labors must tend,
with great effect, to the development of our
Southern agricultural resources. We com
mend them earnestly, to the attention and
consideration of our readers.
The " Soil of the Soutit" is published in
Columbus Ga., monthly at $1 per annum.
We should not omit to mention, in addi
tion to the above, that Mr. PEABODY Still
has under his control the horticultural de
partment of this valuable publication.
The Working Farmer,
This is a New York agricultural monthly,
edited by Professor J. J. MAPES of Newark
N. J., at the usual rates, one dollar in ad
Although we believe this to be a good
paper of the kind, neither our politics or
local prejudices, will permit us to recom
mend it very cordially to the patronage of
our readers. We helheve that charity should
not only begin at home, but so far as
.Northern Papers are concerned, it should
stay at home. Independent of Northern ag
gressions and their unwarranted attacks up
on our institutions; the system of agricul
ture at the North in all its various depart
ments, is so entirely different from ours, that
we believe their agricultural yankey-doodle
ism is eminently calculated to lead our
Southern farmers into errors from which
they cannot easily extricate themselves. We
acknowledge that we have learned much
from our Northern farmers, but we believe
that the mos' valuable lesson the South can
ever learn frora the North, is to have nothing
to do with any thing north of Mayson and

But we stop for the present. Our idea is
merely to show our agricultural readers how
rapidly queries and suggestions crowd one
upon another, when attention is turned to
their varied branch of industry. Many com
plain, in reply to a request for some written
items from their experience in planting, that
they dont know what to write about. Now
we respectfully urge that this is doing injus
tice to their nobbs pursuit. It abounds in
interesting subjects and must give birth, if
properly studied, to a thousand useful en
quiries. The foregoing seventeen proposi
tions we have put down as they occurred to
us upon the moment. Yet most of them in
volve points of real interest to our farmers.
Shall we not have a dozen responses within
a fortnighti One thing only we must stipu
late-that no one communication shall ex
ceed a half column. Take a single point at
a time and use no superfluous language.
Save Your Bacon.
In order to preserve bacon from the fly,
bogs and skippers, we furnish the following
After the shoulders and aides have been
in salt for four weeks, they should be well
rubbed with dry corn meal, or with quick
lime slaked to a dry powder, and then hung
up and smoked with green hickory wood.
iu' shnold be taken from the malt and
well coated with a paste made of three parts
of dry slaked lime to one part of common
black pepper, mixed with a quantity of mo
lasses sufficient to form a good, stiff paste.
It should beapplied to the flesh side only.
Then hang them, large end up, and smoke
with green hickory as above. If you wish
to have extra-fine hams-after smoking suf
ficiently, take them down on the first of
March- bag each ham and give each bag a
good coat of common white wash. The
bags will cost a mere trifle and will last ten
years, if taken care of. Try it, and you will
not fear the fly, bug or skipper afterwards.
Agriculture and the Ladies.
We like to see ladies skilled in all the
business of the vegetable garden. And more
than this, we like to see them (if farmers'
wives) participate in all the anxiety and in
terest their husbands feel about their field
crops. We like to hear them talk as if they
had enquired and really knew a good deal
about such things. There is an affected air
of utter ignorance, as to all things pertain
ing to cotton, corn, wheat, &c., sometimes
assumed by farmers' wives and farmers'
daughters. This is simply ridiculous. It
should be their pride to observe and become
acquainted with the business of the farm as
far as may be consonant with womanly
habits. There is nothing more charming
than a down-right, rosy-cheeked, bright-eyed
country lady, who prides herself upon her
country independence and country advan
tages, and can discourse upon them sensibly.
We append the following extract from an
address recently delivered before the .lary
land State Fair, to show our ladies how
their sisters in Old England look upon this
" As showing the interest English ladies
take in agriculture, I cannot but relate a
casual interview I chanced to have with an
English lady, in going up in the express
train from London to York. Her husband
had bought a book at the stand as we were
about starting, and remarked to her that 'it
was one .gf her favorite American authors
HAWTHORNE.' 1 casually observed, 'I was
pleased to see young American authors
found admirers with English ladies,' when
the conversation turned on books and au
thors. But I said to myself pretty soon,
' This is a literary lady-probably her hus
band is an editor or reviewer, and she uses
the "scissors" for him-at all events, I must
retreat from this discussion about authors,
modern poets, and poetry. What should a
farmer know critically of such things? If I
were only in those fields-if the conversa
tion could be made to turn upon crops or
cattle-then I should feel quite at home.' I
finally pointed out a field of wheat, and re
marked that it was very fine. The lady,
carefully observing it, said, 'Sir, I think it is
too thin-a common fault this season, as
the seeding was late. Those drills,' she ad
ded, turning to her husband for confirma
tion, 'cannot be more than ten inches apart,
and you see, sir, the ground is not complete
ly covered-twelve,, and even fifteen inches,
is now preferred for the width of drills, and
two bushels of seed to the acre will then
entirely cover the ground, on good land, so
you can hardly distinguish the drills.'
" if the goddess C2eres had appeared with
her sheaf; or her conucopia, I could not have
been taken more by sur-prise. A lady des
canting on the width of wheat drills, and
the quantityi of seed !"
"'I will try her again,' said I ; 'this may
be a chance shot;' and remarked, in refer
ence to a field of plowed ground we were
passing, that it broke up in great lumps, and
could hardly be put in good tilth. 'We have
much clay like this,' she replied, 'and fo
merly it was difficult to cultivate it in a til
lage crop; but smece the introduction of
Croskill's Clod Crusher they will make the
most beautiful tilth on these lands, and
which are no0w regarded as among the best
" The conversation turned on cattle. She
spoke of the best breceds of cows for the fall
-Ayrshires and Devons ; told me where the
best cheese was made-Cheshire ; the best
butter- Ireland; where the best milk-maids
were to be found-Wales,"
"'Oh !' said I, ' I wvas mistaken ; this
charming, intelligent wsomnan, acting so
natural arnd unaffected, dressed so neat arnd
so very plain, must be a farmer's wife; and
what a helpmate he has in her !' ",
" The train stopped at York. No sooner
had my travelling compinions stepped upon
the platform, than I noticed they were sur
rounded by half a dozen servants-men and
women-the men in full livery. It turned
out to be Sir John and Lady H. This gen
teman, I learned, was one of the largest
land-proprietors in Berkshire, and his lady,
the daughter of a nobleman, a peeres in her
own right; but her title added nothing to
her-she was a noble woman without it."
Work for January.
We take from the " Soul of the South" the
following hints to farmers upon the matters
demanding their attention at this season:
"'This is one of the busiest months of the
year. It may with propriety be termed the
jobbing month on a cotton plantation, and
perhaps no month in the year requires more
constant attention, or imposes a heavier tax
upon the judgment in the proper distribution
and employment of the laborers. Fencing.
clearing, cleaning up, building, plowing, and
a thousand unthought of jobs of minor corn
sequence, divide the attention. In this month
most of the oat crop is sowvn in this section.
t would have been better to have attended
to this some time ago, but the earlier now
the better. For this season the golden or
yelowv oat is preferable ; indeed so far as
our experience goes, it is better than the
black oat for all seasonsa. It does not mature
so early as the black oat, but that has inot
been an objection with us. Break the
ground well with a scooter plow arnd turn
the seed under -with a half shovel or a turn
ing scooter, wvhich would do better. Tlhis
plan ensures a better stand, a heavier, better
Use every day which can be so employed
this month, in plowing, Your corn land
would pay well for a thorough broad cast
plowing, before the crop is planted.
Haul out your manure, but do not spread
it any more than is necessary. The larger
the piles, the better it will keep. Avoid the
common error of undertaking to make the
manure cover too much ground. Better
manure one acre well than three poorly.
Less than three hundred bushels to the acre,
of such trash as we generally make in our
mule lots under the name of manure, will
not pay for applying it."
0::' Make manure when you have nothing
else to do; and when that useful article

FGR THE ADVERTISER.
MR. EDITOR :-l am glad to see that you
have added to your invaluable paper the
Farmer's Department, and if it will only
hold out as it has begun, I shall look with
more than ordinary anxiety for the weekly
visits of the Edgefield Advertiser. As I think
it may be of service to some of my brother
farmers, I give you the benefit of my experi
ence in raising Water-melons. If any one
wishes to raise this delicious fruit to perfec
tion, or if they wish to show at the next Fair
water-melons as large as a barrel, my ex
perience may aid them.
Early in the last spring I laid out my
mellon-bed ten feet each way. Every hill
was prepared in the following manner. After
digging out holes eighteen inches deep and
about eighteen inches wide, the bottom was
covered with stable manure about three
inches thick. Next was a layer of pulver
ized charcoal about three inches, with a
table-spoon full of guano mixed well with
the coal; then the hole was filed with al
ternate layers of rich soil or mould from
the woods, and sand. Finishing with the
mould I planted the seed, and after covering
them very lightly, I gave a top dressing with
sand, to keep the ground from baking, and
to secure a gcod stand. All came up well
and in a very short time my vines were bear
ing and so much in advance of those of
others that they were the wonder of the
neighborhood. By the first of June I had
one nearly as large my head, but a rascally
little negro pulled it. After that, all my
vines died and not one melon did I get for
We are under many obligations to friend

EOR TI ADVERTISER.
Massas. EDITORS :-l congratulate your
readers on the Agricultural arrangement of
your paper and have but few remarks to
make. Why do farmers save their stable
and cow, and hog-pen manures ? Because
their daddys did before them. Nuf sed about
the chemico-meteoroligical modus operandi
of their application to corn, wheat and cot
ton lands. But just ask them why not save
night soil, anid a laugh is the reply.
Well, nowv for our new wvay of making
old Bacon and old Corn. One negro will
conesume in 12 months 144 lbs. of Ba
con, at 10 cents,................14.44
13 bushels Corn at $1 per bush.. 13.00
Now, the same negro wvill produce "in
liquid and solid excrements on an average
14 lb. daily (5.4 lb. of urine and i lb. feces,)
and that both taken together contain 3 per
cent of nitrogen, then in one year they wvill
amount to 547 lbs., which contain 16,41 of
nitr-ogen, a quantity sutlficnt to yield the
nitrogen of 800 lbs. of wheat, rye, oats, or
of 900 lbs. of barley."
This 547 lbs. of domestic African Guano,
Iwith 100 lbs. of pulverised ebarcoal and 200
lbs. of gypsum or plaster tn fix it, costing
about $3.00, and worth as much as Peru
vian Guano, say $25.00 will manure 4 acres
of wvheat (on land producing without manure
0 bashels,) and produce 20 bushels ol good
w'heat per acro.
T 'hen 80 bush. wheat at $1.00.. ..880.00
deduct 24 bush. at $1.00...24.00
A little more than clear gain enough, to
pay for the old bacon and corn consumed
by the same negro, in the twelve preceed
ing months, and leave a balance, to pay for
the interest and trouble of making the calcu
lation. This is what a young American farm
er would tell an old fogie to be a newwa
of making old corn and old bacon. -
