WORK FOR THE IONTH-(.PRIL.)
C'orn.-The backwardness of the season,
thus far, has retarded all operations on the
Plantation, and few persons in this section
have even commenced planting Corn, up to
the present date (March 15.) It is absolute
ly necessary therefore, that the utmost en
ergy be called into requisition andi that not

proper condition. Manw e heavily and plow
deep-use the best and heaviest seed you
can obtain, and let your after-culture be of
the most thorough character, working often
and shallow, so as to break no roots. More

fancy varieties. T'hey should receive at
least another season's trial before being plan.

the ground very deep and throw thenm up
broad and flat on the summit, so that they
may eatch and retain as much moisture as
possibale. Potato " draws,' or any similar
plants may be safely-set out even in dry
weather, by dipping the roots in a thick bat

.and water, as heretofore described.
Irish potatoes, if not already planted,

protecting the blossomsin gardens and small
orchards, by burning piles of partially de
cayed wood on frosty nights, but no feasible
and practicable plan has yet bEen discovered
for counteracting the frost in extensive or.

most critical time for the blossoms is (accord.

PLANTING AND CULTURE OF CORN.
MR."STOKES :-After the flattering notice
you gave my last communication, it might
have been expected I wvould appear again
sooner in your collu ns, but really it has
been too cold to write. I feel gratified that
even one young farmer has thought he de
rived benefit from my humible lar bors in your
columns. This cheers me on (and I needed
cheering) to further efforts. To be, in some
degree, -useful to nmy brother farmers is the
top of my .ambition.
It has been suggested to me than a state
ment of my mode of planting and cultiva
ting corn, as it differs in some respects tromt
the common mode, might be useful. As it
is raining, and confines ime to the house, I
have conicluded to try my hand upon it. lin
fly last, among other things, I urged the
plan of deeply breaking up our stubble lands
early in the fall and winter. l rejoice that
mine were Vroken up before Christmas, ior
I have not been able to break up any since ;
and those of your readers, if there be any,
who took my advice, will no doubt thank me.
Having thus broken up my stubble lands
thoroughly and deeply, I corumice late ini
February or the first of M~arch, to lay it off
fr corn, by running a scuter furrow, if on
uplands, 5 feet apart, as nearly horizontal
as I can, (my brokeni lands are a.l laid oli
with grade ditches.) TJo this work I put
my very best pluwmen-the less skillfll
follow, running round this furrowv at thme dis
tance of about a foot--all three of the fur.
rows deep. I do this so long before plant.
ing time (3 or 4 weeks,) 1st, because itI
breaks up the land thoroughly where the
corn is to stand, and which cannot be broken
up afterwards; and in the 2d pliee, because
I have more leisure then to attend to haviung
the rows run horizontally than I will when
the hurry of plantinig time approaches.
Having thus prepared, about the 15th of
31arch, or later, I begin to plant by opening
the middle onue or these furrows with a shovel
plo---the dropper follows and drops 8 or 4
grains every 3 feet. The corn is then cov
ered wvith two scuter furrows, managed so
as to make a ride 12 or 14 inches wvide, sharp
enoug7h to turn the water. Nothing further
is done until the cnrn has come up. I am
opposed to scraping the top of the ridge
with a board or borrow, Ir will keep looser
and hoe better when left uintouched, especial.
ly if there should be heavy rains. When
the corn is up if it is very missing, I re
plant; but I have not much faith in re-plant.
ing ; it seldom does much good. And now,
when my corn is up, and before I am called
aayto my cotton, I give it wvhat I consider
its miost important working-a thorough
hoeing. This is done by cutting off the top
of the ridge, all along fronm hill to hill, and
loosening the earth around the corn if it has
been settled by the riins, iio hilling is done,
all is left fiat. By this course every weed
and sprig of grass is killed or thrown where
the plow will reach it, and the corn left to
start without a rival It is this first coat of
grass that i zost to be dreaded. If it is
destroyed, a good plowmanv can keep the land
clean alterwads. This wok is usually done
from the middle to the end of April, in time
to begin fairly with the cotton.
Some two wveeks after the hoeing comn-.
menes, I bring ina my plows for the first
time since the corn was -planted. The seu
ter is run next to the corn, and the shovel
plows out the middles-all as deep this time
as can be done with justice to the mules.
The seuter is not allowed to run so close as
to lap the furrow. T'he earth should barely
ineet about the corn (nor is it esseintial, after
suhi a boeing, that it should meet at all.)
The next plowing, ivken the corn will he
large enough to bear it, is the time to throw
earth to it and make the furrows lap. The
next, or second plowing, is done about 20
days. after, only deep enough to kill the
gass. Three weeks after, the third and
last plowing is given. This is done with
raud :pointed plows or swveeps as shallow as
possible, stig bonving in view the destructioni
of tbs grass, 'The first cenvenient opportu
nity after this plowiog, the hoes shouldl
fol~ew, cutting. out the bushes, weeds and
large banahos of -grass, jf any are 1e[4, which
ays bye the corn,
e'Ia poor groundiI putdinte.peas the sec.
o.A ptamingn in good ground; the third
plowing. I would like never to put in peas
until the third plowing, but in poor ground
it is then too late.
And now, Mr. Editor, to sum up: By this
1st. The ground is well broke and pre
pared for planting and at a time when we
will have leisure to attend to the horiz.,ntal
2d. By cutting off the ridge after the
corn has come up, there is no danger of
leaving grass or weeds, however small and
awkward the hands-a little attention makes
sure of that-and it leaves the rdw in a con
dition to throw earth nicely to the cern by
3d. It Is done before cotton is ready, and
prevents the necessity of doing it after we
have commenced to work that crop, which
every one knows will not hear to be slighted.
4th. This mode looseis the ground deep
before the coin is planted, so that it may
take deep root; and it avoids cutting the
roots after they. have taken. --possession of
the soil-another great advantage.
If any manure is to go into.the corn crop,
I forgot to say, in the proper place, it should
go into the first furrow, 'scattered all. along.
either when first laid off, or it may. be done
at the time of planting. I need. hardly to
say the corn planted. as above, is thinned to

there is so much diffierence of opinion. I

it so-I am no candidate, and if any- of

that's just what we want to see, and I am

up, and the ears small and poorly filled. A
spade was procured, and a hole dug; about
eight inches deep we came to a hard pan,
and with considerable labor brnke through

The subsoiled lot of our friend was then
