Jon-- H irm, President of our Agricultural I
Society, for two ears of the Canada Prolific
Corn. We also take the liberty of stating, c
for the benefit of the Members of our Dis.

FULLER'S LAD LEVEL.
WE have examined this valuable instrm
ment for grading land, either for hill-side
ditches or horizoatal culture, and are well t]
pleased with the result. It is a water level
with a graduated scale for any required grade,
easily adjusted and attached to a straight
edged'plank of 16 feet in length-this plank
is placed on the ground, and gives the aver
age of all the points of the grade for 16
It was invented by our enterprising friend
and farmer, Mr. R. M. FU.L.ER. We invite all c
who wish to inspect it to call and see it.

BODS ET11 PROLIFIC COTTON SEED. I
Tnn attention of our readers is directed e
to an excellent article upon the many supe.
rior qualities of this improved seed. We I
are sorry to dif'er in opinion with our friend [
" RYN.ARD," but so it is; we can not see C
any advantage in the Boyd's opening so
fast, all at once. We would prefer to have t'
cotton open as fast as it could be picked out, '
but no faster. Especially on the red hills t
of Cambridge, it would be a serious objec- r
tion for all the cotton to be open at once, 3
as the greater part of it would be, before it y
could be picked out, on the ground-nankin c
-died in the wool. But we know this va- c
riety to be well worthy the attention of our C
brother farmers, and hereby recommend it to C
themi as a source of profit. e
Those who wish to purchase the seeds of ii
this celebrated cotton might obtain them of
Capt. Wx. CARTER, as wve are informed sa
that he has a quantity for sale at one dollar n
per bushel. They might also get one of d
his patent cotton planters, to plant them

AGRICULTURAL PROGRESS. .1
WuNL.s the progress of science, literature, o
the arts, architecture and mechanics has, p
with giant strides, reached an eminence al- a
most unparnlelled, the progress of agriculji
ture has been comparatively slow, but sures
It is a matter of some surprise to see the
vast improvement that has been effected r
even in our own District within the last a
twenty years. n
Although the fairmers of a past day lived, s
as independently, and probably realizing a
fair compensation for their outlay of labor, p
yet those of the present day are urged on- h~
wards by a laudablo spirit of emulation, pl
prompting each to excell his neighbor in ec
somae one or all the various branches of ag. 2
rieultural itndustry, which, tw~enty years ago, na
was entirely unknown.I
Although the soil twenty years ago was a
comparatively fresh, and though the-farmers bi
of the present day are compelled to culti- p
vate the same land in a state of exhaustion, p
aided by a miore enlightened system of sci
entifie culture they are actually realizing it
muck larger yields per acre, living more com- ti
fortably, enjoying more luxuries, and accu- w
mulating more wealth. o
'This is the more acrange when it is re- bl
miembered that these progressive formers, are it
paying more exorbitant prices for land, ne- fr
groes, mulee, horses, pork hogs, improved ec
cattle, and buying more costly improve
ments in the form of agricultural, labor- *
saving machinery and improved implements j
of every description. Notwithstanding all I
this apparent extravagance, the general ap
pearance of our farms, with their large and ei
comfortable dwellings, indieates not only an Ia
improvement in the management of the t
farm, but ant unmistakable proof of a cor
responding increase of wealth.
The science of agriculture, or " Book
Parminag" as it is sneeringly called, is doing
much for the people, notwithstanding the
railery of many am* igoorant " hard-sell' J

BOYTS EXTRA PROLIFIC COTTON SEED.
Massus EDITOUs:-As planting time is
pproaching, it would he well that farmers
rrange their plans to the greatest possible
dvantage. Some farmera contend that the
ost essential requisite in ensuring a good
rop is a good stand, either in corn or cotton.
'hat is certainly true; but in order to ensure
ie greatest yield per acre, with equally
ood stands, it is essentially necessary to
lant improved seed-seed that will, from
ieir prolific qualities, produce a double
ield from the same amount of weed or
To illustrate my position: you may plant
op-corn and if you gather any thing at
11, it will be a small yield of pop-corn. This
3le will also hold good with regard to mean.
r varieties of cotton, wheat or any other
eeds. There are many varieties of improv.
d cottons, each one of which has its strenu
us advocates; but of all the varieties that
have yet tried, or seen tried *by others,
give the preference to anm immproved cluster
otton, well known in many portions of thnis
~istrict, as "Boyd's Extra Proife." A mong
ine many claims to superiority whlichm this
ariety possesses over all others, the first is,
at it can be crowded in the drill, and the
wa need not be wider than 30 or 36 inches
part, either on np-lands or low-ground. If
our stand is thin or missing, it will throw
ut branchmes at or near the grounmd, each
ne of which will bear a crop equal to an
rdinary stalk. This seems to be a provision
f naiture and peculiar to this variety-thus
nabling it to mature a heavy yield either
ia crowded or in a thin stand.
In the second place, I do not pretend to
sy that it will mature or comnmenee making
more early than other varieties, but whlen it

or it does certainly make faster than any

iakes all it can and holds on to all it makes.

were good fresh land and 10 of old land, 5
or 6 of which were manured with stable
and lot manure. The number of hands!

Now, this is in the region of the Dark
Corner wvhere land rates from three to eight
dollars per acre.
I broke up my cotton and corn land both
with a long scooter or bull-tonague plow, as
you may please to call it. My cotton land
was laid ofi from thirty to thairty-six inches
according to quality, bedded with a turning
plow. I run round my cotton with a turn
ing [plow, board side next the cotton, and
followed with the hoes chopping it out; after
which I replaced the bed to the cotton as
quick as possible and every wvorking after
I endeavored to put a little more dit t to the

and not replacing it, you may produce a
