From the American Cotton Planter and Soil.
PLANTATION WORK FOR FEBRUARY.
It is a matter of the first importance to com
mence plowing early; have the work done!,
thoroughly and deeply, and the stalks, both I
corn and cotton, of last year, buried deeply in I
the soil, beyond the reach of the subsequent
culture of the crop. As insignificant as this
work may appear to those who are in the habit
of burning their stalks in advance of the plows,
allow us to assure you, that in practice, you wil
find it pays well. After cutting or knocking
down the stalks, or pulling them up, when large,
have your rows laid off in the water furrows of
the previous rows, with a good large two-horse
plow, deep and open, then with your inferior
hands, have the stalks laid along straight and
evenly in those furrows, and bed on them. This
is the exact food, in part, for the stalk of your
intended crop, already in. great part a-imilated,
and all ready, as the process of decay takes
place, to be appropriated by the growmig plant.
if you have arranged your fields under the sys
tem of level culture, that we so earnestly urged
upon your attention last month, you will not
hesitate for a moment, to commence ploughing
at once; the subsequent heavy rain, tuat will
fall during the latter part, perhaps of this month.
and in March, will, instead of washing and
baking your land, as it did when you plowed
up one hill and down the other, serve to fertil
ize and the better prepare it for producing a fine
crop. Land plowed deep and level is never in
jared by rain water falling on it, it is frequently
injured, however, when not plowed level, by rain
water running oll it or over it.
Planters should never lose sight of this car
dinal truth in plantation economy-that every
advance they make, approximating a perfect
preparation of the soil-thoroughly drained,
broken deep, well pulverized and highly fertil
ized, multiplies to ta::t extent the certainties of
a rich harvest. To aco implish this, a few con
ditions are absolutely xecessary, though strictly
within the means of every planter in the coun
try, save perhaps the imiol taint subject of the
proper and thorugh drainage of land. This,
the planter is very well able to do, after he na-s
once familiarized hinself with the principles of
the system of drainage. This im; oriant subject,
too little practized in the planting States, and
but imperfectly understood by the great body
of planters, proceeds upon the obvious princi
pIes of first cutting off the supply of water by
ditching, that renders low, damp places too moi
for cultivation; secondly, ditches so arranged as
to cut off the flow of water that would other
wise pond on land from inore elevated locali
PLOWS AND PrLowis.-On the subject of
plows and plowing, we ask the especial atten
tion of our readers. The success of our plant
ation economy is dependent almost entirely on
the plow. Taus you perceive there can scarce
ly be too much importance attached to the plow.
A good plow drawn by a good team, and held
by a good ploughman, not only develops the
hidden treasures of the soil, (its productive fer
tility,) but it may be so used as to lirevent en
tirely the washing of the soil, and furthermore,
which is perhaps, its greatest advantage, nany
be made to counteract, almost entirely, the dis
astrous extremes of droughts, either waty, wiicb
the planting interest of the country depricates
every year, more or less. The only remedy in
our climate, in the absence of irrigation, for these
sure and certain evil+-drought from dry weath
er or drought from too mucu wvet, is to be found
in the use of good, the best of plows, connected
with level culture.
We fondly hope, aid we expect to see the
day, when there wimll be such improvement made
in our plows and our system of plowing, -as to
enable us to plow our lands in preparing themn
for- the crops thirty-six inches deep ! The value
of the plow in the performance ot' such work,
cheap and practical, will be appreciated; land
too, thus wrought, will be appreciated, and a
remnunerating crop~ every year fromn land so
treated, is one of the things that may be relied
on. We are quite aware that there is an opin
ion among planters generally, antagonistic to
this position, its truth however, when developed
in the progressive improvement of the age, wiil,
like the glor-ious suu unclouded, sitine none the
Oas.-Spring oats should be sown during
this month, and in the performance of this work
we would aigain admonish our planting friends
against the imp~olicy of sowinig the grain first oin
the unbroken surface, to be plowed under with
the trash andl litter. Here is the difficulty ; one
third of the grain, at least, never comes up, if
the land be wecil loiwed, as it should of course
be ; and another third is so crippled and stunned
in getting up), through the deep cover, anmid trash
and sod, as to be weakened andI afflicted by- the
" black blast" ere it matures.
First plow up y.our land well with good turn
plows, and before an'y rain falls on it, sow your
oats and harrow them in smoothly and nicely ;
all your seed will come up quickly, grow oli
vigorously, and you have no " bhst."
SweT- PoTATvos.-Prepar-e amnd lhed your
sweet potatoes the first dry, warm spll of weath
er that comes on during this month. Spread a
pretty heavy (oat of compost manure on the
surface ofi lie grundi intended thr the bed-say
f ivefet wide by, thme length that will fornmishli'
plants enough-dig ny the~ land deep. with a good
long grub hoe., then rake smmirthe anmd p~ub erized
and lay down your potatoes, the best go :have.
nearly touching throughout the entire surface.
This'done, cover the potatoes with iome li-zt,
well pulverized compost, thenx throw on th's thrzee
to four inches of so~il, dug up immediately around
the bed. wvhich ditches and drains off' the bed
effectually, giving it partially the advanitages ofa
hot bed. This should be protecte~d at first, till

and manuring, that it may bec readly. (wbr-nm the~

and manuring. I retr to plant coraln riru thiy
month. Thmere, is, howe-ver, no :advantmague in it
wvhatever; it certainaly dwarfs the sudlk and: addr
nothing to the .size or certamint of t., ear. it as
maucha better to spend the tim'ne in piropier~vlyipr~
paring the land, and. conuence plhantinag aftera
the first of March, which is a sumil job whn
everything is ready ; if. however, it be dohme a:
all, the seed corn should be eo,-ered va shaiow.
Everything should he, put in cotmpicte ordecr
during this month for plantiajg the crop, so that
when that work comnmenmeert there shall he nao
unnecessary delay in fixing and menadinig up.
Have all thei tools of the lanttation repaired amal
put in complete working order--the plows, hoes,
harrows and every implement connected with
planting. Overhaul your pilanitati~m gear, and
see that the haimes, collars, backband.<, haim
strings and trace chains are all in roo- l ix amnd
read; for work. Your seed corn should not lhe
neglec ted till the day of plantiug: it should be
shucked out. selectedl carfulvy, shelled and poai
in barrels beforehand. Tfhus prepared. as every
judicious planter may ho, when the season fo'r
planting rolls around, the work commences with
out confuision, progresse.s expeditiously and sat
The great month for Gardening is again upon
us. Prepaire the soil well before a seed is put in
the ground. 1f the garden is in a dry locality,
the beds should tnot b6 elev-ated above the walks.
Asparagus bieds may now be made. This planit
is not yet half unders~tood or appreciated. To
grow it ihr the table,, is entirely an artificial pro
cess. It is a saline plant, but in its unatur-al state
is but a spind!ing weed. .Manmg suppose, that as
it is found on thme sea shore, salt to he a special
manure for it. But this is a great mistake. Salt
is not a fertilizer Ao any vegetable life. .It may
be applied to many erops with advantage, from
the fact that it attracts moisture from the atmos
phere. A pplied to the Asparagus bed, it kills
grass andl weeds, but the roots of the asparagus
must have a large quantity of the richest food to
produce those large succulent stems, so desirable
for lie table. An Asparagus bedl, once properly
made, will last for fifteen or twenty years. if
the roots are to be transplanted, the earth sl.uld
be excavated us lar-ge as the bed is to be, two
feet dewn. ant Aillan in with gone atahin msaue
just cover this with soil and plant the roots, j
covering the crown bud two inches. Large vig
orous stems may be cut the next spring. The
seed may be plauted in common soil, to produce
the roots for transplanting into the rich bed.
Beets may now be planted; spade in a good
lot of well rotted manure, pulverize the ,round
thoroughly. Beet seeds will vegetate five, six
and eight yejtrs old. but where they are more
than one year old, they should be soaked forty
eight hours before planting. As each beet cap
sule contains from two to five seeds, care should
be taken not to plant more than one seed in a
It will yet be too early to plant the dwarf snap
beaus in the open ground, unless they are plante(d
in pits. Dig a pit twelve inebes wide at the top.
six inches deep, in the bottom of this, dig in
some well rotted manure, and in the centre of
the furrow, plant one row of dwarf beaus, have
a wide plank convenient to lay over the trench
in cold nights, and by the time that the tender
bean cau stand the weather, their top will be
even with the surface, when the sides may be
dug down and the beans worked with the hoe.
Plant early cabbage. These may be planted
in rows where they are to remain to head, or
sown broadcast and transplanted. It is not im
portant to transplant the early cabbage. The
cabbage is a great feeder, and to head well, must
have a good supply of its favorite food, which is
atmmouia and potash, good stable manure contain
them in large proportions. The Cabbage is a
sea shore plant, and will bear salt in its culture,
without injury. Salt, without being any positive
benefit to the feeders of the plant, destroys the
insects that prey upon the tender leaves.
Sow Carrots, Parsnips, Salsify, Cress, Kale and
Lettuce. Plant English Peas, some pinnach,
parsley, early Turnips and Mustard. Plant the
Onion button, the set and the seed. Those raised
from the beed keep best, and are about as easily
raised. The soil for onions should he very rich.
Poultry manure is the best fertilizer for the on
ion. Garlic, Leeks and Shallotts should now be
planted. The great French Shallots makes a
outton on the top like the button onion and is a
grcat acquisition to the garden.
The tender plants, such as Egg Plants, Okra,
Cucumbers, Melons, Peppers, Tuuatoes, etc.,
may not yet be planted in the open ground, but
if planted in a hot bed, will be ready to trans
plant into the open ground as soon as the weath
er will permit the seed to be planted. Okra may
lie bru-ought forward some weeks earlier by being
started in hot beds. It may be transplanted as
easily as cabbage. Melons and cucumbers are
not so easily transplanted; to get them early, a
hot bed should be made of each hill. The squares
in the garden designed for the tender plants,
should now be thoroughly manured and deeply
subsoiled. The ottener the ground is spaded or
plowed, and the deeper the manures are incorpo
rated in the soil belore the seeds are put in the
ground, the greater the crop.
SrFrOLK Hous.-In the good qualities that
constitute a perfect animal for producing the
most pork, of the best quality, at the least cost,
this family stands unrivalled as yet, by any in
the United States. Their merit in part consists
in size; length of quarters; short and lean dished
heads; fine, thin and upright ears; prominent
eyes; tine tail and limbs ; quietness ; and above
all, their perfect adaptation to take fat readily on
the most thvorable parts. I have slaughtered hogs
of this breed whose live and dressed weight dif
fe.-ed less than a ninth. No thorough-bid antimnals
of this fitinily have yet been slaughtered, but
enough is known to warrant us in sayMin they
will readily attain 500 lbs. at maturity. One lit
ter of eight half-breeds averaged 289 lbs. at nine
months. Two three-fourths dJo. attained 390 lbs.
at 14 months. Although I rather doubt the as
sertion of their becoming very fleshy on "two
chips and a corn cob," still I know they can
manufacture pork of an excellent quality from
clover and apples.-Albany Cultivator.
Lt.xn FOaL POTAToES.-A correspondent
Smiith Groom. of Troy, New York-informs us
that his experience in the culture of potatoes
has convinceed him that about a handful of dry
slacked lime, placed in each hill, tends to pre
vent the potato rot. The lime, he states, brings
the p~otatoes earlier to maturity, and imparts to
them a vigor which resists the attacks of the
disease. A experiment with lime cant lie con
ducted by any of our farmers at a small expense,
mad if it does not prevent the potatoe rot, the
lime w~ill certainly enrich the soil for other
H-ow -ro BrtNi -rim Wn.nEST- Ilonas FOn SnoR
INEZ, AMs -rue Wum~mms-r Cow Foit MItKIXG.-The
way to do it is simply this: Put around the
animal, just back of die fore legs, a strong rope,
or chain; into this twist a stiek, so that every
turn the r-ope? will be drawn tighter, until the an
imal will suibmuit to beinig handled at your plens
ure. The most unmanageable antimual can be
sub~duied in a few miunutec. in this mianner.-Gen
Cons ANO Hoa.-From carefully condneted
exp -riments by ditferemit persons, it has becen
ascertained that 'ine bushel of corn will make a
little over 103 pounds of pork-gross. Taking
the result as a basis, the iblowinig deductions~
are made, wich all fatrmr-rs will do well to lay
by for a convenient reference.
When corn costs 25 ems per bushel, pork costs
3 ets per pound. W~hen corn costs 33 cents per
bushel, pork costs 4 ents per pound.
Whten corn CostSsO ets per, bushtel pork will
cost 5 cents per ponnd.
