GARDENING FOR JUNE.
The Southern Cultivator, (capital authority)
furnishes for June the following excellent ad
vice to gardeners:
Little can be done the present month, in the
garden, with the exception of mulchinr, weed
ing and watering. We regard the first opera
tion (mulching) as of a paramotut importance
in this climate, and have spoken of it so often
that repitition seems unnecessary. Mulch every
thing-trees, shrubs, vines and vegetables
covering the surface of the earth, as far as the
roots extend, with 4 or 5 inches of pine straw,
'hip mould, spent tan, sawdust or forest leaves
-and you will fine that trees and plants thus
treated grow much faster, and receive little or
no check from the long-continued drouths of
Aid-summer. Water should now be freely and
regularly applied to all your growing vegetables,
through the mulching, in the manner heretofore
directed-leaving no moisture exposed on the
surface to the baking rays of the sun. This is
an excellent time to attack the weeds, and you
must show them no quarter. Cut them down
and let them die on the surface; or dig them
up, and burn them, root, branch -and seed.
Plant Snap Benis and scatter a little short lit
ter or saw dust o the ground after having cov
ered the seed. This will make them come up.
Irish Potatoes can be planted and heavily
mulched; they will give a fair crop in October.
Plant Waternwsluns for a succession. During
the latter part of this month, Cabbage and
Brocoli plants for fall and winter use may be
Seeds of Cabhbaye, Ciodifte-ner, Cdtry, &r.,
may be sown under low arbors, made of brush
or pine tops, in order to shelter them from the
fierce rays of the sun. Water often, until the
plants are well up, when a little liquid manure
may be used alternately with the water, from
time to time. Plant a full crop of Okra, without
delay. Plant Peas, Siceet-Corn and Snap Beans,
for a succession. Transplant Tiates and ear
ly Celery, &c., and prick out Celery. Cauliflower
and Brocoli. Pinch off the leading shoots of
of your early Tomatoes, Lima Beans, Melons
and Cucumbers, if you want the fruit to set
early; and give the plants liquid manure if you
desire large specimens. If the green worm is
troubling your fine Musk-melons, place the
fruit on a brick, when half-grown. Sow Toma
toes for a late crop, they will come in when the
first is gone. Sow Rutabaga 'Turnip- seed and
transplant them like winter cabbages, in rows
2 feet apart and 18 inches apart in the row.
The white and yellow summer Radish must
now be sown. Transplant OViions and Leeks,
if not done last month, whenever the season
suits. Also transplant Beets where they stand
too thick in the seed beds.
Strawberry Beds must be kept free from
weeds, well mulche4 with leaves or broom straw
and freely watered in dry weather. If you de
sire fruit, cut off all the runners as fast as they
appear, and keep the ground cool and moist.
But if you wish to increase your plants, the
mulching may .be dispensed with (except imme
diately around the plants as directed heretofore)
and the surface must be kept clean, and well
worked with a pronghed hoe.
THE ORCHARD AND FRUIT GARDEN.-Where
the frost has not cut oft a portion of your fruit,
thin it from one-third to one-half, if the branches
are heavily laden, and the remainder will be
enough larger and finer to pay for the trouble.
Peaches, Pluwns, Nectarines, Aprico.'s, &c., aty
now be budded, using for the stone fruit., by
way of experiment, fre~e growvinig and vigorous
stocks~ of the wild Chickesawv Plum; but the
tree must be trained low and br~umchinir instead
of tall, slender and "spindling." Mulch all
yoting trees set out last spridg, and give them a
copious watering occasionally. Turn your small
"shoats" into the orchard to devour fallen fruit,
and encourage them to " root,"or loosen up the
earth by scattering a handful of corn to them
occasionally underneath the trees. Large h.ogs
.are frequently destructive to orchards, tearing
and mutilating -the branches in their efforts to
obtain the fruit, even when the ground is thick
ly covered with it.
CAPITAL ADDRESS TO FARIERS.
Donald G. Mitchel (Ik Marvel) recently de
livered the annual address before the Connecti
cut State Agricultural Society. From a con
densed report in the Hartford papers we select
the following admirable closing paragraphs:
" But there is something worth living for
besides money. That is very good, but it is
not all. With the rest, let us raise a crop of
good ideas. While you are a farmer, remember
that you are a man, with duties and responsi
bilities. Live down the old brutal notion that
a farmer must be uncouth, uneducated, and un
thinking-a mere plodder.
"You are brought into immediate contact
with the great heart of civilization. You can
not get out of the buzz of the toiling world.
The trill of the wonder working wires and the
rumble of the locomotive (the thunder-threat
of nations) come to your secluded hills.
"Move towards a better life. Do not keep
your boys corn-shelling in the long winter eve
nings. Make your farm a place that your son~s
and daughters cannot help loving. Cultivate
tho trees-they are God's messengers. Dpon't
say that you care nothing for looks. You do
care, else why did you build that two-story
white house, with blinds, and a cupola into
which you never go? Or why did you, years
* ago, carefully brush your coat, and pluck up
your shirt collar, when you were starting, on a
Sunday evening, to visit that good woman who
*now shares yotur home?
"Care much, more for books and pictures.
Don't keep a relemn parlor into which you go
but once a month with the parson, or the sews
ing society. Hang around your wall picture
which shall tell stories of mercy, hope, courage,
faith and charity. Make 'your living room the
largest and most cheer-ful in the house. Let the
place be such that when your boy has gone to
distant lands, or even when, perhaps, hie cling,
to a single plank mn the lonely waters of the
wide ocean, the thought of the still homestead
*shall come across the desolation, bringing al
ways light, hope and love.
"Have no dungeons about your house--no
room you never open--no blinds that are always

they can weed a flower-bed or cling to a side
saddle; and, daughters! do not he ashamed of

Szca.rs or T.IrrNU lkinss.-A correspon
dent of the New York E&pres submits the fol
. lowing method of horse taming:
"For the oil of Cummin the horse has an in
stinctive passion, and when the herse scents the
odor he is instinctively drawn towards it. The
oil of Rhodium possesses peculiar properties,
All animals seem to'cherish a fondness for it,
and it exercises a kind of subduing influence
" To tamo horses, procure some horse castor
*and grate it fine, also get some oil of Rhodium,
and oil of Cummnin, and keep the three separate

getting a little of the oil on it. You can then

of oil of Rhodium- into a lady's silver thimble;
take the thimble between the thumb and mid

USEFUL ND DOUESTIC UCIPES.
BEE KEEpiNo.-The keeping of honey-bees
might be made a source of considerable profit
to eery plantor. As it is, but few persons are
fmund who devote the least thought to this
subject. One imay now and then be found who
keeps bees, but it is in the old fogy hives, and
the bees left entirely without care or attention.
They continue this for a few years until the
bee-moth destroys the broods, and the final
conclusiun is that " bees do nut pay?" Now,
let the bee-keeper get " Lang.-troth's Movable
comb Hive," and the accompanying book of in
structions, and we may venture to assert that,
with a little attention, the difficulties of bee
keeping will be entirely removed. In this Hive,
the operations of the bees may be viewed at
any time without the least danger to the obser
ver, or interruption of the work of the bees.
Our limited space prevents us from a more ex
tended notice in this number, but we shall re
cur to it hereafter. In the meantime we invite
an examination of the Hives, and the bees at
work, at the residence of Col. H1. H. Kellogg,
26 Broad-street, or at the office of the Inventor.
Tin FARM ER' Carn.-One of our exchanges
gives the following first rate advice undor the
heading of "The Farmer's Creed:"
" We believe in small farms and thorough
cultivation. The soil loves to cat as well as its,
owners, and therefore to be nurtured. We be
lieve in large crops, which leave the land better
thait they found it-making both the farm and
farMer rich at once. We believe in going to
the bottom of thing?, and therefore in deep
ploughing, and enough of it-all the better if
with a subsoil plough. We believe that the
best fertility of any soil is the spirit of industry,
enterprise and intelligence ;-without this, lime
and gypsum, bones and green manure, marl or
plaster, will be of little uie. We believe in a
clean kitchen, a neat wife in it, a spinning pia
no, a clean cupboard, dairy and conscience. We
firmly disbelieve in farmers that will not im
prove; in firms that grow poor every year;
in starved cattle; in farmers' boys turning into
clerks and merchants; in farmers' daughters un
willing to work ; and in all farmers who are
ashamed of their vocation."
RvcnmrT rol MArmIN LiclIT BEAD.--Take a
pint of milk and let it come to a boil; put in
enough cold water to make it a little more than
milk warm ; put in one teaspoonfgl of salt, two
large teaspoonfuls of corn meal, and enough
Hlour to make it as thick as you can convenient
ly stir it. Keep about milk warm; if water
rises to the surface, stir your yeast up-and if it
does not begin to rise in four or five hours, stir
in a little more meal. When your yeast rises
-sift your flour; put in a little salt and a piece
of butter half as large as a hen's egg; mix up
with warm water; grease your pans and warm
them and fill them full, and when the dough
rises to the top of the pan, put it to bake. Bake
to a light brown, then take it out of the -pan
and wrap it up. Bread ought not to be cut
under twelve hours after baking.-Talley Farmer.
BE CAnmrIi, wrra rimE GUAN.-It may not

danger may be incurred by the reckless hand.
lin" of uaio. We understand that eases have
occurrei of persons having cuts upon their fin.
ers who, in handling this manure, have received
a deadly poison into the system. The guano
contains an organic element which is just as
certain to operate against lile if it once reaches
the blood, as the corruption of a body that gets
into a woud upon the person of the dissector.
Farmers should be aware of this fact and be
autious. We hear of a death from this cause,
occuring within a few days in a neighboring
couty.-Ph iladelphia Anaeicani.
To MAKE 600on VINEGAR.-The juice of one
bushel of sugar-beets, worth twenty-five cents,
and which any farmer can raise with little cost,
will make fromt five to six gallons of vinegar,
equal to the best made of cider or wine. First
wash and grate the beets, and express the juice
in a cheese pres, or in any other way which a
little ingenuity can suggest, and put the liquor
into a barrel; cover the bung with gauze, and
set it in the sun, and in fifteen or twenty days
it will be fit for use. By this method the very
best of vinegar can be obtained without any
trouble ; and I hope all who like good vinegar
will try it.
To MAKE GL.sr Sniar Bosoms.-Take two
ounces white gum arabic, powder it in a pitcher,
and pour on it a pint or more of water,,accord.
ing to the degree of strength you desire, and
then, having covered it, let it set all night. In
the morniing filter it carefully from dregs into a
clean bottle, cork it and keep for use. A table
spoonful of gum water stirred into a pint of
starch, made the usual way, will give to either
white or printed shirts a look of newness that
nothing else can restore to them after washing.
CoMMON BAKan Ccsraan.-Mix a quart of
new milk with eight well beaten eggs, strain the
mixture through a fine seive, and sweeten itwith
from five to eight ounces of sugar, according to
the taste ; add a small pinch of salt, and pour
the custards iinto a deep dish, with or without a
lining or rim of paste ; grate nutmeg or lemon
rind over the top, and bake it in a very slow
ovemi from twenity to thirty minutes, or longer
should it not be firm ini the centre.
Cucmnar BorcEcv.-Take a peck of morella
eherries, and a peck of black hearts. Stone the
morellas and crack the stones; put all the cher
ris and the cracked stones into a dlemijohn with
three pounds of loaf sugar, slightly pounded or
beateni. Pour in two gallons of double rectified
whiskey; cork the demijohn, and in six months
the Cherry Bounce will be fit to pour off and
bottle for use; but the older it is, the better.
To REMovE DAtyoRTFF.-Take a thimbleful
of fine powdered refined borax, (can be had at
any druggist or country store,) let it dissolve in
a teacupful of water, first brush the head well,
then wet a brush with the mixture and apply to
the head. Do this every day for a week, and
twice a week after, for a few times, and you will
effectually remove the dandruff. So says a lady
friend wh'o has tried it.
A Cement which gradually #ecomes as hard
as stone miay he made by mixing twenity parts,
by weight of clean sharp sand, two of litharge,
and one of whiting, and making them into thin
putty with linseed oil. For seams in roofs, it
may be formed of white or red lead, thinned with
linseed oil, and dry sand added.
Hons's Arm'sT.-A horse's appetite may
be improved by rubbing common salt gently on
the roof of the mnouth. The salvary glands are
thus excited into action, and digestion is promlo
ted. Or, put a lump of~ rock salt in his manger,
and his~ lieking it occasionally will improve his
How vo ExeL.UOE Fiums.-Suspenad a net of
light cord thread in a window, andl no flies will
pass through, although the meshes are large
enough to pass a dozen through. This plan is
only effective when there are windows on one
side of the room-no opposite lights.
To PasavE TIMBna.-It is said that iI one
pound of sulphuric acid is mixed with forty
pounds of water, timber immersed therein will
not rot, and that the underground portion of
posts will hnst for manmy more years tor being so
LEMoN CatEAM.-Tnke a pint of thick cream,
and put to it the yolks of two eggs well beaten,
four ounces of fine sugar, anid the thin rind of a
lemon; boil it up, then stir it till almost cold
put the juice of a lemon in a dish or bowl and
pour the cream upon it, stirring it till quite cold.
Ris CUARDas WITHOUT Car.A~m.-Take one
tea-spoonful of rice flour, a pint of new milk,
the yolks -of three eggs, sugar to your liking,
mix the rice very smooth, and stir it with the
ris into the boiling milk; an excellent dish for
To TELLI Goon Eoas.-If you desire to be
certain that your eggs are good and fresh, put
them in water; if the buts turn up, they are not
fresh. This is an infallible rule to distinguish a
good egg from a bad one.
CuacoA.-As a medicine, should be used
very sparingly. It does not digest, and it fre
quenty caues fatal results by lodging in the in
testines and folds of the stomach.
