" Let idle Ambition her baubles pursue,
While Wisdom looks down with disdain,
The home of the farmer has charms ever new,
Where health, peace and competence reign.
WE take great pleasure in numbering our
friend "CAMBRIDGE" with our agricultural
'contributors.. We hope that he will enrol
his name upon our book and continue to
enliven our columns with his ready humor
and gifted pen. We refer our readers to his
article, and hope. that many more will follow
his example and write for our department.
The Farmer's life is a merry one, and we
like to have the bright aide of the picture
sometimes turned; and while we are toiling
hard and bending beneath the burdens and
- cares of the farm, it is refreshing to the
weary farmer to have a humorous veil thrown
over his management of the various branches
of industrial pursuit. There are many
amusing scenes on the farm, which, if given
to the public, as " dottings by the way,"
would'serve to enliven the cheerful fireside,
and render our agricultural "department"
"GET OUT'N THE GRASS."
OUR readers will remember that we prom
ised them that as soon as we ourselves got
out of the grass we would inform them of
the fact, and tell them how they might get
out also. We are glad that we are at last
out of the clutches of " Gen. Greene," but
we are sorry we made the promise, as we
hardly know how we did get out. But to
all who are still delving at the unconquera
ble foe, and are anxious to learn how to
subdue him, we give the benefit of our ex
perience. We worked out ! Those of them
who cannot' work out had better wish and
wait for frost.

sired by CAMBRIDGE.
RExAR~s:-As our facetious dictionarian
correspondent wishes to be enlightened with
regard to this most singular phenomenon,
(our having no peas planted,) we can 'only
sny, that we would have planted largely
could we only have procured the seed. Samp
son w~as a mighty man, but even a Sampson
could not have made a pea-crop without the
seed. We now reply to his various queries
upon this important subject, and we earnest
ly hope that our reply will furnish him with
that information which he so much needs.
" Turned under to escape the embraces of
conaolvulus !" What in the world does that
mean I Scratch-Scratch. We have seen
may-pops, morning-glories, brambles, sarsa
parilla, tread-saft and nigger-wool, but we
give it up,-we have never met with that
critter in a pea patch or corn-field yet. It
may lie a varmint that gives peas the bear
hug, but without further conjecture, we
" Do they really injure land I" No. But
they unquestionably injure corn. Ourgrow
ing crop is a living witness to this fact, and
no practical farmer or scientific professional
character can deny it. Although pea-vines
afford shade and vegetable deposit which
add much to the productiveness of the'- soil,
they injure corn to the amount of' nutrdment
they consume. Peas should never be planted
in corn until the last plowing, they should
then be sown broad cast. Peas are a valua
ble crop in the Piney Woods as they are
more certain to mature and yield on sandy
than on clay soils, consequently it is the best
policy to plant peas to themselves for seed,
>n stiff cray lands. So much for" "the modus."
We heartily concur with " CAXBRIDGE"
as to the value of peas - for cows, but when
it -comes to 'bacon, wve might be allowed to
argue that it is safer to make bacon by rais
ing a'greater quantity of corn than to have
all our stock hogs killed by turning them
into a pea-field. The cow-pea for hogs is a
dangerous medicine, but we cannot expect
" CAxBnuoo" to feel much alarmed at the
fatal effects~ of medicine. A jnan can get
used to any thing.
We are really disappointed and grieved to
learn that " CaamtIDGE" is such a bad
horse-master; however, " one ear of corn
and three shucks" may answer as a feed for
.a horse that has to carry comparatively
nothing but a light pair of saddle-bags, but
horses that have to pull "Ferruginous Scoo
ter-" must be fed on something more sub
stantial than cow peal.
We assure our witty friend that no indig
a.t emotions he been glicited bJ Jaia~u
morons queries, and we hope our reply will
be received in the same vein of good humor.
We are requested to announce to the
readers of the Timb that there will be a
meeting of citizens of Richland District in
the City Hall, on the first Monday in Au
gust next, the 6th, for the purpose of appoint.
is; delegates to represent the District in the
Agricultural Convention, which is appointed
to meet in this city on the second Wednes.
day in that month. In view of the great
interest of agriculture, which will be greatly
promoted by the formation of a State agri.
cultural Society, we trust that there will be
a general attendance of the citizens of
Richland. The indications are that there
will be a large number of delegates in the
Convention from various sections of the
State. Meetings have been held in several
Districts, and the most intelligent farmers
and planters have been commissioned to be
present in the Convention and to contribute
the influence of their experience and obser-.
vation to its deliberations. Richland should
send up her quota of wisdom and talent to
aid in the work proposed to be accomplished
by the Convention. She owes it to herself
and to the State to do all in her power in
furtherance of the cause of agriculture, and
in the advancement and improvement of
this all-important source of the wealth, hap
piness, and.the moral and intellectual well
being of the people of the commonwealth.
And .whatever good Richland may do the
cause in other portions of the State, that
good will reflex in its influence and effects;
she too will be benefitted. A social com
mingling of her people with intelligent and
devoted planters of other Districts, will sug
gest to them new ideas and plans in the art
of agriculture ani bring to their knowledge
new modes and implements of cultivation.
Let there then be a general attendance of
the farmers and planters of the Districts on
the first Monday in August.
The citizens of Columbia should feel an
especial interest in this matter, and should
by all means secure a large representation in
the coming Convention. Not only should
they manifest interest in the scheme of form
ing a State Agricultural Society, by being
represented in the convention, but they
should hold themselves in readiness to sub
scribe money promptly and liberally in aid
of the work; The annual meetings of. the
State Society will be held in this city, and if
the exhibitions of stock, agricultural produc
tions, and the delivery of agricultural ad
dresses, essays, &c., shall prove half as in
teresting and attractive as they have proven
in Georgia and elewhere, thousands of visi
tors will be congregated here. These will,
of course, expend a large amount of money
in our midst, in the purchase of groceries,
agricultural implements, dry goods, &c., &c.
Our merchants will, therefore, be largely
benefitted by the annual influx of visitors.
Our hotel proprietors will share bountifully
in the profits to be derived from an ingather
ing of persons from the various sections of
this and the adjacent States. The real-es.
tate holder will bo inoirectly benefitted in the
enhancement of his property and his rents.
The mechanics and artizans of the city will
also come in for a share of the annual har
vest. In short, every class of our citizens
will be, more or less, benefitted by having
the annual exhibitions of the State Agricul
tural Society take place here. TIhey should,
therefore, hold themselves in readiness to
contribute liberally in furtherance of the
scheme, whenever called on. Other towns
and cities have appropriated thousands of
dollars for the purpose of securing to them
selves the advantages of such exhibitions.
And if the people of Columbia expect to
keep pace with the progress of the age they,
too, must be liberal of their means in aid of
such schemes as are calculated to enhance
her prosperity. We feel confident that they
will do this ; that they will do all that may
be reasonably asked of them in aid of the
proposed State Agricultural Society. At
any rate, they will furnish the Society with
suitable grounds and enclosures, and all ne
cessary buildings. T1o do this properly, and
in a style comportinig with the character of
the city and of the contemplated Society,
will require no inconsiderable sum. What
ever sum may be necessary, we are sure our
merchants, hotel proprietors, real-estate pro.
prietors, mechanics, artizans and professional
men will freely furnish. This is their duty,
and they will not fail of performing it. Let
then, the citizens of Columbia make some
little sacrifice of time and attend the meeting
on the 6th of August.-Columbia Times.
HORSES TEOUBLED WITH FLIEs.-At this
season of the year the following recipe to
prevent horses from being teased with flies
may be humanely instructive to owners and
drivers of horses.
" Take two or three small handfuls of
walnut leaves, upon which pour two or three
quarts of cold soft water ; let it infuse one
night, and pour the whole next morning into
a kettle, and let it boil for a quarter of an
hour. When cold, it will be ready -for use.
Nothing more is required than to moisten a
sponge with the liquor, and before the borse
goes out of the stable, let those parts which
are most irritable be smeared over wvith the
liquor, viz: between and upon the ears, the
flank, &c. Not only the lady or gentleman
wvho rides out for pleasure will be benefitted
from the walnut leaves thus prepared, but
the coachman, wagoner, and all those wvho
use horses during the hot months."
SOAP, WHITE LEAD AND OI.-Mr. Edi
tor-It is not so generally known as it should
be, that a mixtnre of the above named in
gredients makes an excellent coating for
gates, fences and out-buildings. The addi
tion of the soap (soft soap only is to be used)
considerably diminishes the expense of the
paint, without, in any degree, lessening its
durability, or the-facility of laying it on.
I have a house, the north-west side of
which was painted with this mixture nineteen
years ago, and the paiint is now much more
brilliant than that put upon the other sides
at the same time, though the latter was of
the best quality of white lead and oil, and
four heavy coats applied, while the soap
paint I applied but two. Fences painted
painted with this mixture, as well as the roofs
of buildings, for which purpose any coloring
matter, or pigment may be substituted for
the lead, endure much longer, it is ascer
tained, than those painted with pure oil paint.
The alkalescent qualities of the compound
render them impervious to the atmospheric
influences which are the chief causes of de
cay and rot. The quantity of soap to be
used can be best asertained by experience ;
on this point no definite rules can be pre
scried.-NewEngland Farme~r. *
REMEDY FOR THE BLACK K.JoT.-In con
ve-sing with a friend a few days since he
informed me that he had succeeded in remo
ving the black excressence that have proved
so injurious to plum trees, as follows: Satu
rate the knot with. spirits of turpentine, and
in tims3it will dry up and heal over. He
akika k.Aiaa is caused bi an insect,
which the spirits of turpentine destroys, and
thereby remedies the-evil. He had recom
mended it to his neighbors, and in all cases
it had proved alike -beneficial. In looking
over some of the back numbers of the Cul
tivator, I find the general remedy recom
mended is excision and knowing that this
sometimes proves injurious to the tree, I
thought I would send you this remedy, so
simple and yet so beneficial, for publication,
not doubting but that I should get some ideas
in return from your correspondents.
I see the cherry is affected in some sec
tions of the country, with the black knot,
and I presume the above remedy will prove
alike beneficial to them.-Country -Gentle
HORSES AND MULES FOR THE SOUTH.
The neglect of grain crops by the cotton
planters of the South has been often and
justly animadverted upon. The maxim
" produce, if possible, all of your home sup
plies at home"-cannot be too often or too
deeply impressed upon the agricultural com
munityof the Mississippi Valley South.
But there is one corollary from this max
im, which so far, we believe, has' been but
little agitated or discussed. With every nat
ural facility for growing fine horses and mules
all the cotton States (excepting a small por
tion of Tennessee) are tributary to Kentucky
and the Western States for their supplies of
those useful and indispensable auxiliaries of
man, whether engaged in agriculture or com
''here is no reason why Tennessee, Car
olinas, Mississsippi, Alabama, Georgia, and
Texas, should not raise all of their own horses
and mules. There is no earthly reason why
these States should not also raise all of their
own corn, hogs, cows, &c. There is, like
wise, no earthly reason why these States
should not pay particular attention to the
improvement of the breeds of all the differ
ent kinds of stock.
It is sometimes said that the South is not
a good grazing country, and therefore not
suitable for growing fine stock. A moment's
consideration will show that this is the purest
" fudge." The low lands bordering upon
every perennial stream in the South-from
the lordly Tennessee to the smallest brook
"singing its quiet tune"-are capable of be
ing made-a little expense-the finest pas
tures in the world.
Look at the Tennessee river bottom ; how
many millions of acres are there, yet awaiting
the occupancy of the grazier, to whose pur
poses they are better suited than to those of
any other class of agriculturists? So of

When will the South be true to herselfI
When will the southern men learn their true
policyi When will they learn that everything
produced at home, corn and horses, peas and
hogs, potatoes and mules, shucks and sheep,
brogans and beef-is a saving of always
double, and often quadruple, of what the
same article would cost if they have it to
buy ?-Memphis Eagle and Enquirer.
GREEN BEANS oR SNAPs.-Oreen beans
or snaps, green peas and rostting ears may
be had every day in winter at a very trifing
amount of troub~le. They are all preserved
by being packed away in salt. The salt is
removed before cooking by steeping in warm
water. We-had on the table a fine dish of
snaps on the 25th of December, Christmas
day, and have been using them since as often
Mode of precserving Beans.-TIake any
tight vessel, jar or barrel, and lay down a
layer of beans and then cover lightly with
salt and so on untill the vessel is full. Green
peas are preserved in the sam~e manner.
To preserve Corn.-First shave the Corn
from the cob with a sharp knife, and then
pack in a close vessel, corn and salt in al
ternate-:layers, untill the vessel is- full, soak
well in wvarm water before cooking, and it is
just as good as it is in summer. Try it all
you whlo are fond of good eating.

DzaunSin:-I send you this to cert ry to' you that youl
Extract of Yellow Dock and Barsapartila has performed
one ol the most wonderful cures on me that has ever been
effected on man. 1 have been affieted for for ty years with
eruptions on miy legs and feet ; in 1848 they got so bad
that I had to go on erutches, and In 1849 1 had one l
amputated above the knee. In aboutnlnenmonthsafter am:
other leg broke out in large eating and running sores froni
my knee to m fot, and discharged a great deal of olen
sive matter.,l groin also broke out in large biles, which
discharged mucha offensive matter, and at the same timt
my left hand broke out in large rnnning sores nearly to amy
elbow. The misery that I hiave suffered for the last twc
years I cannot descrIbe to you. I was In such agony that
I never rested day or night.
In October last my son brought me one of your bottle
wrappers; 1 read It, and found record of some wonderful
ures performed by your " Extract of Yellow Dock and
Sarsaparlia." I sent and got two bottles of It, and comn
menced taking it. In two weeks, to my greet astonishment,
my sores all became easy, and I could sleep all night, a
thing I had not done for two years. When I had takei
sIx bottles, my sores got well as if by exchantmnent. I have
now used In all eight bottles of your "Extract of Yello11
Dock and Sarsaparls" and I consider myself well.
I entreat all of the afficted to try'this medicine, for I be
lieve it will cure any known disease In the world. Lay
aside all prejudice and just try It, and proclam its grea
worth to sufflering mankind ad entreat them to take it, foi
It will cure them. hty case is well known to a large portion
of South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, and If any should
doubt the above cure, I invite them to call on me, and I
will show them the sears. I ean be found In 'lmibiapoosu

A PURE & UNADULTERATED ARTICLE,
FOR DISEASES OF THE LIVER,
A0 !i W3Fm 2EB =3ZU.
T HIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the Sarsa
parilla which grows in the Southern States and
nothing else. It has the natural Sarsaparilla taste.
Its efeet uponfthe system in all cases in which Sar
saparilla is indicated is wonderful. It is a great
safeguard against diseases arising from a torpid state
of the Liver, qr impure state of the Blood.
Generally, it acts upon the Bowels as a mild pur
gative or laxative. It not only mildly moves the
Bowels, but gives tone to the system by restoring a
healthy action in the Liver, and by freeing the blood
from its impurities. .
For children it is a great preventive of worms
and supercedes the necessity of giving them so
much worm medicine; at the same time it improves
their general health.
A better and more useful medicine cannot be in
traduced into Edgetleld Distriet, either for profes
sional or family use, than the Georgia Sursapar Hla.
