TIE PRIZE WATCH.
WE gave in our last issue a notice to th,
contestants for this valuable prize to hand i
the reports of their crops, &c., to the propt
Committee for their decision. We hop
that this will be done immediately, and be
leave to suggest that not only the crops an
produce be reported, but also the mode <
culture, the kind of implements used, th
quality of the soil, whether old or tres
land, the number of horses or mules enr
ployed, together with all the expenses ir
curred in the raising of their crops. Thea
reports will be valuable documents to man
who are beginning to farm and anxioust
learn how the greatest results may be a
tained at the least possible outlay of labo
time or money. ___
OU!R DiSTRItCT SOCIETY.
W E hope our friends will remember tha
our District Agricultural Society is still in
progressive state of existence, and that th
number of members is now quite a respec
able list ; but yet there is room for moi
names. There are a great many farmers<
intelligence and wealth who have not as y
come up to our help, and we earnestly hop
that they will take a "sober second thought
and identify themselves with this noble er
terprise. We have all the wealth, intelli
gence and practical knowledge in farmini

~The Oats sow. in the fall must be thinne
out by the severe freezes, and a full cro
can hardly be expected. The Wheat cro
has suffered much, especially where sown o
red lands, which are more liable to spe1
up when frozen. Wheat, that was sow
early in the fall, had time to take goc
root and consequently is but little injured
but that sown later being young and tendi
and having hut little root is seriously ir
jured. This being the case, we may infe
from the large crops of cotton and cor
which were gathered last fall, that farmei
were generally backward in sowing thi
wheat, and consequently a majority of th
wheat crops are injured by the sever

Tans is a good time to plant this moi
valuable of garden crops; and as there at
many modes of planting, all boasting certal
success, we will thank some one of oc
numerous readers to give us a plan an
mode of cultivating this crop, that the ur
decided and inexperienced may avail then
selves of their experience.
The best mode we have ever adopted, i
trenching the bed with a spade about twel,
inches deep-then fill up the trench aboc
three fourths full of straw or litter and ma
nure or mould from the woods, and the
plant the sets or eyes, covering them lightl
with rich, loose earth. Then let them corn
up, and when about 6 inches high give ther
a good wvorking and cover deeply with pin
straw and oak leaves in equal parts.

would like to hear from him by owr nea

the soil be modified according to kind; we ded
