Clear the brown.path to meet the coulter's gleam!,
Lo ! on he comes behind his smoking team,
With toil's bright dew-drops on his sun burnt brow,
The lord of earth, the hero of the plough!.
First in the field before the reddening sun,
Last in the shadows when the day is done,
Line after line along the burning sod,
larks the broad acres where his feet have trod;
Still where he treads the stubborn clods divide, -A
The smooth, fresh furrow opens deep and wide;
Matted and dense the tangled turf upheaves,
Mellow and dark the ridgy cornfield cleaves;
Up the steep hill-side where the laboring train
Stands the long track that scores the level plain;
Through the moist valley clogged with oozing clay,
The patient convoy breaks its destined way;
At every turn the loosening chains resound,.
The swinging ploughshare circles glistering round,
Till the wide field one billowy waste appears,
And wearied hands unbind the panting steers.

TO RAISE GIANT ASPARAGUS.
The writer in one of the early volumes
of the Horticulturist, (Mr. Downing, we
believe,) tells how to grow common aspara
gus so that it will always rival any .giant
production. Ile says:
Every one who has begged me for the
seed, thinking it a new sort, but I have
pointed out the manure heap, (the farmer's
best bank,) and told them that the secret
all lay there. The sight was only such as
might be in every garden.
About the first of November, as soon as
the frost has blackened the Asparagus tops,
I take a scythe,.and mow all down close to
the surface of the bed; let it lie a day or
two, then set . fire to the heap of stalks;
burn it to ashes over the surface of the
I then go to my barn-yard ; I take a load
of clean, fresh stable manure, and add there
to half a bushel ofhen dung; turning the
whole together throughout. This makes a
pretty powerful compost. I apply one such
loed to every twenty feet in length of my
asparagus beds, which are six feet wide.
With a strong three-pronged spade or folk,
I dig this dressing under. The whole is
now left for the winter.'
In the spring as early as possible, I turn
the top of the bed over lightly, once more.
Now, as the asparagus grows naturally on
the side of the ocean and loves the water, I
give it an annual supply of its favorite -con
diment. I cover the surface of the bed
about a quarter of an inch thick with fine
packing salt, it is not too much. As the
spring rains come down, it gradually dis
solves. Everything else, pigweed, purslane,
all refuse to grow on the top of my aspara
gus beds. But it would do your eyes good
to see the strong, stout tender stalks of the
vegetable itself pushing though the surface
early in the season. I do not at all stretch
a point, when I say that they are as large
around as my hoe handle, as tender anid
succulent as any I ever tasted. The same
round.of treatment is given to my bed eve
WORK FOR RAINY DAYs.-The mechanic
has no trouble on this score, if his wvork be
under cover, but it is a serious question
with the farmer. With all his contrivance,
there are often many days lost. With a
good barn cellar, and plenty of muck, there
is almost always something profitable to be
done in forking it over. With the sheds
for vehicles, there is always a piaying job
in greasing the wheels. This not only sav-es
the wear of the axletrees, and boxes, but it
adds a good deal to the power of the team.
They can carry a much larger load, and do
it easier, with well-oiled wvheels. Yet many
farmers forgot the grease-pot, and go half
the time, at least, with squeaking axletrees.
Such a noise is disgraceful to good husban
The breaking up of old bones for manure
is another rainy-day job, that wvill pay. The
poorest of all jobs is that very common re
sort, fishing. The idea is homneopathic, on
ly the doses are apt to be rather large. A
thorough drenching, an enipty stomach, and
few fish to put in it, are the usual results of
a rainy-day's fishing.
The manager of the farm can hardly
spend his timie better, a~t this season, than
in reading up his agricultural papers, and.in
laying his plans for the future. No work
pays so wvell on the firm as head work.
'There is far too little of it done.
THE WASTES OF THE FARI.
So much is said now in the agricultural
journals about the wasting of manures, that
it is having a perceptible influence upon the
practice of farmers in all parts of the coun
try. Barn cellars for the preservation of
m'anure are now the order of the day. No
farmer who takes the papers, or observes
what is going on around him, thinks of build
a new barn without setting it upon a side
hill. or in sonme place where he can have a
manure cellar underneath. The worth of
muck and absorbents is beginning to be un
But there are other wastes, quite as val
uable, that are still overlooked. If a far
mner loses a sheep, or eow, or hog, or horse,
from disease, the dead bodies are very like
ly drawn off into a swamp, or distant p as
ture, and, there left as food for crows. This
is a great waste of a much more valuable
fertilizez-than stable manure. A dead horse
or cow is worth at least five dollars for the
Comupost heap, and with labor and muck, to
save its gases, it will be wvorth twice as
much before it reaches the - field. - The
amount of muck a dead horse wvill charge
with amnmoniacal gas, and their fertilizers,
is truly astonishing. Dana thinks twenty
loads of good manure mzay be made from
one animal. H~e is not wide of the mark,
if the heap be properly treated..
The dead animal need~not be carried to
a distance. With six to~eight cords of muck
the work of decomposition may go on in
your gardena, without disturbing any one's
olfactories. All anmirmal and vegetable mat
ter should lie carefully saved for the com
post heap. Labor spent in saving these
wastes will be richly rewarded.
lI0lE MADE GUAMO.
By a comumunicatiomn in the American
(Baltimore) Farmer~, we learn that Mr.
Thomas D. Rotch, a genitlemian from Scot
land, but who claims American descent
his father being a New Bedford rwan, and
his mother from Nantucket-bas secured
in this country a patent for the manufacture
of a manure by a treatment of the blood
anid offal of animrals with sulphuric acids or
other acids, or with copperas or other salts.
Statements are made of the effects of this
manure in England, that represent it as far
superior to the best guano. A company
for its manufadture has been organized in
Philadelpiffa, and it is proposed to estab
lish three others,-one in Baltimore, one in
New York, and another in Boston. The
maent in Eng1and was secnred by a Mr.i
Oldham, who sold it to a company for fifty
thousand dollars, and a " royalty" of two
English shillings per ton upon all the ma.
nure thus made. That was a pretty tall
price, but we have no reason to doubt its
correctness. Mr. IRotch fixes. the price of
his manure at *45 per ton of 2000 lbs.
We have long thought, and have often
said, that something ought to be done to
prevent the waste of fertilizing matter in
our cities. We hope Mr. Rotch will meet
with such success us to incite the skill and
ingenuity of others to devise means by
,which the very life-blood of our farms may
be returned to enrich our hungry soils, in
stead of breeding disease and death in our
cities, by being sufibred to pollute the air
and water by which they are surrounded.
Mr. R1otch asserts that the manufacture
of any manure in which blood and sulphu
ric acid are used "renders the sellers the
consumers and the manufacturers eqully
We think that no patent ought to author
ize so broad a claim as the above, which
we gve in Mr R's own words and italics.

FLESH EATING AND VEGETABLE EATING.
To consider man anatomically, he is de
cidedly a vegetable eating animal. Ile is
constructed like no flesh eating animal, but
like all vegetable eating animals. Ile has
not any claws like the lion, the tiger or the
cat, but his teeth are short and smooth,
like those of the horse, cow, and the fruit
eating animals; and his hand is evidently
intended to pluck the fruit, not to seize his
fellow animals. What animals does man
most resemble in every respect ? The ape
tribes; frugiverous animals. Doves and
sheep by being fed on animal food, (and
they niay be, as has been fully proved.)
will come to refuse their natural food; thus
it has been with man. On the contrary,
even cats may be brought up to live on
vegetable food so that they will not touch
any sort of flesh, and be quite vigorous and
sleek. Such cats will kill their natural prey
just as other cats, but will refuse them as
. Man is naturall y a vegetable eating api
mal ; how then could he possibly be injured
bv abstinence from flesh ? A utian by way
of experiment, was made to live entirely
on animal food; after having persevered
ten days, symptoms of incipient putrefac
tion began to manifest themselves.
Dr. Lambe, of London, has lived for the
last thirty years on a diet of vegetable food.
He commenced when he was about fifty
years of age, so he is now about eighty,
rather uiore, I believe, and is still healthy
and vigorous. The writer of the Oriental
Manual mentions that the Ilindoos among
whom he travelled were so far from a tent
dency to inflammation, that he has seen
compound fracture of skull among them,
yet the patient to be at his work as if noth
ing had ailed him, at the cud of thrc days.

H-oRSES CoATs.-ILately going to the
country to spend a fewv weeks with a friend
of umine, I drove a very handsome horse,
and a good 'un-but was always annoyed
about his coat, as it was moure like a lot of
bristles than a horse's smiooth skini, and all
the grooming be could get " wouldn't do it
no good." My friend, who is a great horse
breeder and fancier, muade mec try giving
him a few carrots every day out of my
hand, saying that he would have a good
smoothe coat in three weeks-and he was
right, for in that time my horse had aL beau

and burstings, scatter the cotton to the
flamnes and tihe wind, causing the destruction
of every other bale withiin its reach. Cotton
bound with wire, moreover, could scarcely
be made to blaze, and if combustion be car
ried on at all it must be in a smouldering
condition. The wire would hold the cotton
more firmly than rope, in a compact mass,
so that air could scatrcely reach the parts
on fire. The danger from devouring ele
ment being less, the insurance in store or
on shipboard ought to he redue-ed. Wire
also is cheaper and lighter than rope, and
could afterwards be used in baling up goods
or for other putrposes. It should lbe very
malleable and galanized or (lipped inl coal
tar, so as to prevent the possibility of its
rusting. Like rope, it can lie adjusted to
any sized bale, both ini paeking and coim
A SIMPL.E CURE FOR A SNAKE BITE.-Mr.
Jno: Andr-ews, of this distri et, informs us
that a few days since lhe was fishing; lie
had with him a small negro boy, who mis
taking a mnocasin for a stick, picked it up
and was bitten on tihe thumb. Mr. A. had
frequently been informed that his grand
father, one of our oldest settlers, who was
'a great hunter, had never failed to prevent
any evil consequences resulting from a snake
bite by washing the wound in water, and at
the same squeezing out the poison. HeI, in
this case, resorted to this cure. Iholding
tme wounded mn'mbaer under water, he wash
ed it for some time. The cure was comn?
plete; the thumb did not even swell. The
bite of the nmocasin is as much dreaded as
that of the rattle snake. This statement
may be relied upon. Mr. Andrews is a
man of character.-Darlington Flag.
