A GOOD CROP. t1
OUR Friend T. J. H. has kindly handed n
us a report of a crop raised by him for Col.
M. FRAZIER on the Islandford Plantation. t
This report is not made as a brag-crop, but ti
simply with a view to give a fair statement c
of the operations, together with the disad- a
vantageous circumstances under which the 0
overseer had to labour, and the good yield -b
notwithstanding, for the benefit of our broth- h
er farmers. This is as it should be. We A
hope others will follow the cxample.
Mssas EDITORS: According to your re- n
quest, I give you a report of my last year's b
crop, and the manner of its cultivation. In t
January, my first operations were sowing r
and plowing in oats, splitting rails and re
pairing fencey By the 5th of March I had v
sown the oals, repaired the fences, and bro. o
ken up all the land, both for cotton and corn, a
and a considerable portion of the corn land 9
the second time. I then commenced plant
ing corn and finished on the twelfth. 1,
My corn was planted by laying off with a
scooter plow and dropt 33 inches apart, -
being covered with two more scooter fur
rows. I then commenced hauling out ma-r
nure, bedding up cotton land and clearing a
small new-ground. When these operations I
w~ere done, my corn was up,-but the weath
er turned cold and upon examination 1 foundr
my corn so badly killed that it w-as necessa
ry to plant it all over again. This I did in
the same manner as at first. I then com
menced planting cotton on the 7th of A pril,
opening the ridge with small scooters, drop
ping the seed, covering some with harrowvs
.and some wvith small scooters. 31y corn
wvas now beginning to come up. Mly first
working to the corn, was by running in the
coverin'g furrowv with a subsoil plow.(lBroyles'
wve suppdse,) as deep as the best mules
could pull them; following with hand-rakes
and raking the crust and clods off the young
corn. This done and I had the prettiest
stand of corn I ever saw. I then turned<
b~ack and plowved out the middles with long,
sharp scooters and followed with the hoes I
and thinned it to a stand. I then went to
the cotton I had covered with the plow, and I -
w~ith hand-rakes raked off the top of the ridge
and in a few days, I also~ bad a fine stand of (
cotton. I then run round the cotton wvith scoo
ters with boads nailed on the right side to
keep the clods from falling on the cotton,
following with the hoes and thining to twoI
or three stalks in a place.
A fter going over in this way, I then plowv
ed out 120 acres of fresh land cotton. b
My corn was now to be plowed the second a
time. I used shovel-plows altogether this
wvorking. After plowing about 100 acres,
and wvhen everything wvas looking as fine as,
one could wish, on the 18th of may we had|
the most destructive hail-storm I ever wilt- [
nessed. Every thing was beaten to and into I
the ground; fences were blown down ; trees
nd limbs were blown down and scattereda
over de whole plantation ; and all our labor|
thus far seemed to have been done in vain.
I seratobed my head, but that would not do ;
so I order e ot the whole force and with
might and main went to putting up the fen
ees, cuating and rolling logs, and piling up
brush. I then determined to finish .plowing
my corn-stumps any how, and by that time
I could tell what to do with my cotton-shins.
By the time the corn was finished the cotton
began to grow, some that w~as only crippled I
and some coming up from the seed, all to.
gether not enough for a half stand. I run
round it as before and chopped througha it,
not chopping out cotton but grass and weeds.|
I then turned back and plowed out the mid- I
dies with shovels. After this I plowed my c
corn the third and last time. This working ~
was done with shovels and turning plows; e
running round with wing shovels and finish-| a
ing with straight shovels
[ then plowed out my cotton again with '
shovels and at the proper time laid it by with
the sweeps. IE
The crop gathered was as follows:
Corn, 3531 bushels, at 75cts $-2048,25
Cotton, 131 bales, weighing r
Oats, 1200 bushels, at 50ets. ...600,001 fl
Wheat 36 " at $1,50cts.. ..54,00|
Pork, 10,000 lbs net,-at8 ets....800,00 C
Fodder and Potatoes not counted.
Number of hands employed 27, all tod
rated as 24 good hands.
Yours with respect, &c.

nRE n-~s-This is a good crop, but it ig
ust be remembered that all the expenses of
ising it should be deducted before we can
rive at a properestimate. The gross amount
i reported above is a fraction over $354,
ir hand, and we doubt not that even after
I expense is deducted there are very few
at will go over these figures.
WE hope our correspondents will exercise
itience towards our dilatory answers to
eir enquiries. We will give all attention in
THE WEATHER AGAIN.
SiNcE our last issue we have had another
rvere trial of the small grain crops in the
Iling of another snow or sleet, ,which is
t upon the ground. The freezes at night
3der the icy crust of such a sleet must be
reatly injurious to wheat and fall oats ; hut
is sinful to complain, and we hope that all
iings will yet work together for our good.
It is too frequently the case that man is
ver satisfied with that over which he has
Farmers especially are too frequently heard
Icomplain of the weather. If it is dry he
ants it to rain ; if raining he wants it to
op, and he is seldom satisfied. To such
e recommend the beautiful extract below,
om WASHINGTON IRvING:
And here let me say a word in favor of
ose vicissitudes of our climate which are
>o often made the subject of exclusive re
ining. I1 they annoy us occasionally by

ant sunshines of the South of Europe with
ie fresh verdue of the North.-They float
ur summer sky with clouds of gorgeous

oling showers to refresh the panting earth
nd keep it green. Our seasons are all poet
!al; the phenomena of our heavens are full
f sublimity and beauty. Winter with us
as none of its proverbial gloom. It may
ave its howling winds, and chilling frosts,
nd whirling snow storms; but it has also
s long intervals of cloudless sunshine, when
e snow clad earth gives redoubled bright
ess to the day ; when at night the stars
eam with intense lustre, or the moon floods
ie whole landscape with her most limpid
adiance ; and then the joyous outbreak of
ur spring, bursting at once into leaf and
lossom, rebundant with the vegetation, and
ociferous with life !-and the splendors of
ur summers-its morning voluptuousness
ad evening glory-its airy palaces of sun
ilt clouds piled up in a deep azure sky; and
s gusts of tempest of almost tropical gran
leur, when the forked lightning and the bel
owilg thunder volley from the battlements
if Heaven and shake the sultry atmiospihere.
-and the sublime melancholy of our autumn,
nagnificent in its decay, withering down the

A proper supply -of pasturage is the great
rant of southern husbandry. Unless this
rant shall be better supplied, our agriculture
nust continue to decline. A routine of
rops which furnishes a plentiful supply of.
~rass, hay and small grain, is essential both.
or successfully rearing valuable stock and
mproving our soils. Add to this as bounti
ul a supply of manure as can by care and
~ttention be made on the premises, and there
il be a reasonable assurance for prosperi
y and independence, if not wealth.
The agricultural statistics of England
how that while she has some ten millions
>acres in crops, she has fifteen millions in
~rasses and pansturage. And there cannot
>e a doubt that the most profitable rural
nanagement in our country 'is that which
jrnishes the best exhibitions of pasturage
md the grasses.
There are portions of Virginia and Northi
'arolina, whicli twenty years ago, were so
~ullied and exhausted by the continuous cuil
ivation of the t wo hoe crops of Indian corn
mad tobacco, that the lands were dilficult to
ielI at three and four dollars per acre. Those,
ands now sell at from forty to one hundred
lollars per acre, and are annually becoming
nore valuable, under a diff'erenit treatment.
Vhere formerly were seeni the ganr't cow
ad horse, the half starved hog and sheep,
Lre now to be found fat and improved ani
nals of every kind; luxuriant fields of red
lover, of timothy and blue grass, or rich
heat or oat fields occupying the places
ihich were cast away as wvorthless ; ei-i
~ration is checked, and the country not less
ban the inhabitants, present a cheerful,
leasing and happy aspect. Now wvhat has
aused this revolution ? Simply the change
rom the unremitted hoe crop of hiidian corn
d tobacco, to a judicious system of rota.
ion, and proper attention to manure, which,
rhile it has improved the soil, at the same
ime has furnished a plentiful supply of grass
d hay. Add to tbese the increased facili
ies for transportation, by rail, roads and
lank roads, and we have a full explanation
f the great reformation and transformration.
Have the net profits of the farm beeni di

ion vill be found in the enhanced value of
be lands-for it- is hardly probable that
here lands have increased in value 1000 to
500 per cent, that the profits have not ad.

With such examples before him, why is it
bat the cotton planter will persist ini his
inous coursei Is it because be believes
othing can be relied upon for stock od
rut Indian corn, and nothing for profit, but
otton ? If so, let him ask the Virginia and
~arolina farmer, and they will satisfy him
f his error. They will tell him that the
pinion once prevailed with them that Indi.
n corn for rood, and tobaeceo for' market,1
were the only reliable crops and that this
as the great error of their old husbandry,
'ich impoverished their stock and their
mda, and was rapidly depleting their pock.

&ILT FOR STOK.
Professor Simonds, Veterinary Inspector of
he Royal Agricultural Society, observes, in
elation to the action of salt on the animal
tconomy, that " it is exceedingly beneficial
n moderate quantities, but prejudicial in large
nes." lie thought horses might take with
idyantage from an ounce and a half to two
)unces of salt daily ; but that an excess or it
6vould render animals weak, debilitated, and
infitfor.exertion. Similar flcts were applica
)le also to oxen, which accumulate flesh fast
!r by the judicious use of salt, than without
t. le cited Auther Young and Sir John Sin.
,lair, to show that salt had a tendency to pre
ent the rot in sheep. Prof. S. added as his
)wn opinion, that salt, by its action on the
iver, and the supply of soda yielded to the
bile, led to a greater amount of nutriment be.
ing derived from the food. The substance,
be said was also well known as a vermifuge,
Jestroying mny kinds of worms in the intes.
tnes of animals, and conferring a healthy
tone of action which prevented their re-oc
sorrence. Several members of the It. A. So.
Diety, as Col. Challoner and M1r. Fisher
Hobbs, stated that their experience led theim
to agree with Prof. Simmonds in regard to
the value of salt for animals. In reference to
the mode of giving it, the practice of placing
large lumps of rock salt in fields or yards,
where it was accessible to the stock, was
mentioned with approbation. The practice
is now adopted by many farmers in this
oountry, and after several years, trial, is pre
ferred to the former mode of giving salt pe.
riodically. When animals are only allowed
to have salt once or twice a week, it is some
times the case that they eat too much al
once, but by having it constantly in theii
reach, they eat such quantities as their systetr
requires, and it assists the digestion, and pro
motes health and thrilt.
M.AN SUAR--The following interestin
letter was handed over to the commissioner o
Patents by Dr. Bernhisel. It is from Mr
Aaron Daniels, who resides in Provo city
Utah LTerritory, and is dated August 11, 18'55
We copy as follows:
"According to agreement, I send you i
small cake of the sugar made fron the sirul
or honey found on cotton-wood trees, and
as you requested, will give you a fe w particu
lars concerning the manner in which I discov
ered it. As 1 passed along to and from m:
cornfield, (which is situated one mile fron
town,) I discovered a white substance on th
coton..wood trees, which, upon examination
I found to be a sweet substance, somewha
resembliig the honey dew in the States, bu
in far greater abundance, and possessini
other properties-sonie of the cakes bein,
as thick as a knife blade or window glast
I thought, from the quantity there was 01
the trees, that sugar might be made of il
and signitied the same to a number of in
neighabors, who all ridi' uleud the idea ; so
thought I would try anid see what I coul
do with it. J took home two bushels, an
washed the twigs, and then strained an
boiled down the water, whicb made one an
a quarter poundus of sugaIr. Since that tim
most of the towns have been at work. Sonm
families have made as high as one hundre,
pounds of sugar. It makes excellent mc
lasses, and as good vinegar as I ever sau
1 averaged about eighteen pounsds per da
with two three gallon kettles."
Although the quantity of sugar made fror
this sirnp is smadl, yet we are assured thr
it is still profitable, from the fact that sugn
in that region of country is worth forty ceni

mong the various mlodes5 of preparing foo
tor fattening swine, I do not recollect seein
in " The Cultivator," the favorite plan of th
writer of this no ute, viz : Th'lat of having a
kinds of meal from grauin in tended fosr fatin i
bogs, instead of bouiling or staaming, p)
into water in vats or tubs of sizes in pro~po
tion to the number fatting. and there remai
until fermenitation takes place, before feedin
out to the swine-not giving any meal
hogs or pigs, until this acid fdrmaentationi
observable. In this state I have unever know
swine to become cloyed lby overeating, hou
ever freely fed. On farms where cheesei
made, I have found, as I apprehend, in
only a safety but pro~fit in putting the nie'
whey into the vat whiere this process wa
going on. The~concistency of this prepari
tion, i think, should not exceed that of goo
cream. In this way l have seen swine fat
ten. faster than from meal given in any othe
form, and seen less marks of food havin,
passed the annual undigested, which is ofte

freely given, unlprep~ared ; and I may adt
according to my experience, (though ou

WARNING TO EVERY SENSIBLE WOMAN
Why Femnales Suffer in Realth.
No woman of delicacy is willing to disclose the peculiar
ailments iucdcideat to her sex, even to a most intimate family
This modesty and delicacy is implanted by nature, and
neither should nor need besubjected to the rude shocks in
evitable in making known to the othersex those allknents.be
lunging exchtsIvely to the female.
Except in extreme cases, her sensitiveaess will sacrisce
her health rather than her delicacy.
The onseiuences are aerious, lamentable, and life-long.
Thus what at first could have been easily remedied,- or
pmrhtas better still, not Incurred, becomes a coniplication of
disen'e, not only ruining the health of the mother, and em
bittering her days by micknes. and suffbring, but entalling
brisken constitutions upon her children, and embarrassing if
not distressing, the business and pecuniary prospects of the
husband. Let every sensible woman

peculiar to the female system, which undermine the health,
the effects of which they are ignorant, and for which their
delicacy forbids seeking medical advice! How many suffer

her dellencty, the nature and charneter of the allment (to whleh
she as a female Is subject)the causesfrom which It miay arise,
and the proper remiedies for Its cure and future preention.
