The " Americdn Farmers Magazine."
From this well-filled monthly, published
and.edited by J. A. NAsH, Ann Street, New
York, at $1. a year, we give our readers this
week two or three interesting articles. The
first to which we invite their attention is,
Good and bad Farming.
if there be what our heading indicates,
then it is owing to the fact that there are
good and bad farmers. Did the earth bring
forth spontaneously, in all latitudes aui lo
calities, then there would be no occasion to
speak of good farming and bad farming, nor
- of good farmers and bad farmers, for there
would be nothing to do but to gather the
spontaneous productions of the earth. But
this is not so; for it has beetf decreed to
man, that by the sweat of his face he should
eat bread. This implies labor, whose appli
cation and direction constitutes the principal
difference between good and bad farming.
For the same sun shines, the same dews dis
til, the same showers decend, the same
breezes sweep over the plains of the bad
farmer that do over. the acres of the good.
The latter is diligent, meth)dical, skilful and
enterprising, while the former is wattiug in
all these, and more, for he is a slothful man,
whose portrait is so vividly drawn in an old
oriental volume well known to our readers.
The good farmer takes care to have plenty
of firage, for without forage he can keep no
cattle, no horses, no cows. Grass lands, both
for hay and pastures, are indispensable; and
root crops are also essential to aid in feeding
live stock. Besides these, wheat, barley,
buckwheat, oats, rye, and corn, must be pro
duced to feed and sustain man.
But, says the bad farmer, wealth is the se
cret of success with my neighbor, the good
farner. le bas inherited money, or else has
made it in other busiinea, and can therefore
outdo one who has inherited nothing and
made nothing but what he has got off frtm
the far:n. this may be true in your case,
wiuei it may be also with many well to-do
farmers. Remember, it is good fartmiig that
pays. Ba-lnever does. So far is it from
thii, that it not only fails to pay, but imnpov
eriihes hiin who is eugiged in it. So wan
can afford ti raise seven bushels of rye per
acre,-or'ten busbels of wheat, fifteen of oats
or barley, twenty of corn, &c., while good
farmers produce of wheat and rye each from
thirty to sixty bushels per acre, eighty of
oats, and seventy-five to one hundred of corn,
and two or three hundred of potatoes.
No wonder that bad farming leads ulti
mately to the abandoning of.the business, be
cause it does not pay. True, it doe< not pay,
never did for any length of time, and never
will. There are no more independent poo
plo in the world than good farmers, and few
more miserable, dependent and wretched
than bad farmers. It is the purpose of every
philanthropic man, and more especially is it
bo with those who conduct the press, to
greatly multiply the latter class by duuinish
ing the former. Then shall good farming be
the rule, and bad farming the exception. May
the day be hastened, when this shall be ve
rified. M. M.
There is much good sound reasonling in
the above hints on good and bad farming.
We now give somethirng from the same jour
nal, of a more scientific nature, and which
s'ould be thoroughly understood b~y every
tiller of the soil.
Chemiistry of Agriculture.
&da.--This alkali, in various combination-,
-estists in all soils and manures, and constitutes
a part of the food of all plants, more of some,
and less of others.
1. Claide of &odium, (common salt,) has
in many districts a decidedly tertilizing influ
ence. A small quantity of salt is absolutely
necessary to the growth of crops. Its hens
fit, as a fertilizer, on any particular field, de
pends upon whether the soil already contains
*- sufficient of it; for if it does, then more is
not required by the plants of an ordinary 'ro
tation; but if not, the addition of a little
will produce an increased growth of crops.
The question, whether a soil contains suffi
cient ot it, mybe decided by analysis; but
a pretty gojument may be formed, by
the location. Inuar situations, and regions
along the coast, not more than eighty or a
bundred miles inland, are supplied with it in
the spray from the sea. Hence, it is usually
found that for ordinary crops, salt is not as
beneficial near the sea as farther inland.
Another indication may be obtained from
observing the crops, part'cularly the cereals.
If the straw in any given region is feeble, not
well glazed, inclined to lodge, it is an indica.
tion,--not a certain proof by any means,
but an indication, that salt does not exist in
sufficient quantity in the soil. When this
indication is observed, it would be worth
while, at least, to try the effect of salt.
True, it is not salt that forms the glazing
of straw. Silica is the substance which forms
the glazing; but some alkali is requisite to
render the silica soluble; and the soda in salt
has been found by practical farmers to answer
this purpose. Abstract science may have
suggested the prehability that such would be
the result; but practice. In this as in many
other cases, 'has confirmed the theory. In
England, where science has taught, and prac
tical men have experimented more accurate
ly, perhapa, than in any other country, the
farmers have long believed that the effect of
a small application of salt is to stitlfen the
straw, and thus to enlarge the kernel'and
render it less liable to blast.
Salt destroys small weeds; where deficient
in the soil, it improves the quality of pas
tures, rendering the feed more palatable to
animals; probably, under the same circum
uitances, it would improve the quality and in
crease the quantity of hay from mow lands;
it is said by some to destroy worms, and
while this is denied by others, the probabili
ty is that neither are quite right, that the
truth lies somewhere between, that it cannot
be relied upon as a destroyer of worms, but
that it does nevertheless diminish their rava
The effects of salt vary on different plants.
We have often experimented with it on mow
land. One trial was, to scatter salt along a
narrow strip of mowing, only a few feet
wide, in the spring, and then to watch for
the effect. Another was to scatter it along
such a line, very thickly at first then less as
we passed on, ending with the least possible
quantity. The result was, that where there
was the most, the grass was killed out-right ;
where the least was sowed, there was no
visible effect ; but there was in every case an
intermediate point, where the grass was bet
ter than where no salt was applied. This
was on a light loam, that had not been ma
nured highly, about a hundred miles frm
the sea-board. Two conclusions were admia
sable ;-.one, that on such land as that, situa
ted as that was, and treated as that had been,
a very small dressing of salt, say five or six
bushels to the acre, was 'avorabie to the old
meadow grasses, and would probably pay for
the cost; the other that these grasses will
bear but a small dressing. unless there hap
pens at the time a large fall of rain to dis
solve the salt and ditifise it through the soil.
We found that asparagus would flourish.
with three or four times the amount of salt
dug into the soii, that would entirely kill the
meadow grasses, sown on the turf in dry
weather; and we ascertained the truth of
what has often been stated, that you may
sow on an as itg5bed salt enough to kill
Thtsalt brightn thestw of weat and
oats, and renders the grain heavier per bushel,
In the opinionof many English farmers. Some
believe that these effects are heightened by
a mixture of quicklime with salt, formed by
slaking thi lime with salt water, at the rate
of one busliel of salt to three or four of lime.
This wakes a very caustic mixture, and
shouldrather be comnposted with other ma
nure, than applied directly to the crop. It
is a valuable addition to swamp muck, te,.d
lg to hasten its decomposition and at the
same time to supply it with those activ'e salt.
of which it has been deprived by lying long
under water. A ed of muck, with half a
bushel of. this mixture and a bushel of wood
ashes, well comiposted together is, in our.
opnon, worth qmite as much for ci.ourn
uah ton dressDiUgspan mmadow frpga%
as a load of barn yard manure. Whenever
I m-! can be had at a small price and swamp
mcnk abotund<, the farner has an immense
resource for enriching his land and enlarging
Salt ba. been said to be specially favorable
t) the niangold wortzel, but of this we have
no cer;ain knowledge. For asparagus it is
all important, and shoull be applied in the
spring, when you fork in the manure spread
on before the setting in of the previse win
ter, at the rate elf at leait bushel to the
square rod. Salt in which fi..b orneats have
been packed will answer well for this pur
pose, only that more should be used, as it is
not as strong.
2. Sip/dutte of Soda, or Glauber's salt.
This salt has been highly commended in Eng
land for clover, the grasses, and the green
crops generally. That it would have the
sate, or even a better effect than salt in
strengthening the straw of the cereA.., we
can readily believe, as the alkalire effect of
the soda would be to disnsolve the silica in
the soil, while the sulpliuric acid could hardly
fail on any dry, bweet bplind, to be favorable
t-) the growth of crop.. lut we.,-uppose that
the price would pre-hde it, use in tis coun
try; or, at least, that commnton salt, fir the
purpose of strengthenhag and brighterninig the
straw, of prevnotinit lottltinlt ad tlhe shrink

3. Car&wrc f -&kaa.:The common sods
of the shups, iseAl for W4bhing; would lasve a
similar elfrot to streingtinen the straw of the
cereals. It is hardly cheap enough to be
used in field culture but is risied to produce
a fine effect in strawbeiries in the garden.
It should be dis.olved in: much water, and
applied as top dressing in fruiting time, or
the effect will be to produce more vines than
In the form of' soda ash, it has been ap
plied as a destroyer of the vine worm. It
may be sown with the sed, -oi ipplied as a
top dressing, with gool effect, after the rava
ges of the woaru have toinneucead.
Nibrate 4' ,da, or aslpetre, a. sounetimes
called. Thi< is known to, greatly promote
the growth of all you.ea:plansts. giving theirs
a dark green color. Expytimjents in Etgland
have shown it to be of great value f..r the
wheat crop, on sandf iils. It lasi been
shown also to lie exce-e liogly favoralile to tie
growth of tihe -tigar canie. Might it not prove
equally favunale to the corn crop, and per
haps to the sorghum ? A.4 imnense quanati
ties of it are found inapoints of South America,
along the eastern slope of .the Andes, we
should not think it strange if, in the progress
of commerce with those countries it should
be obtained cheaply, and be among our val
uable imports. It would at least be worth
while to try its effects on corn, on the sor
ghum, and on the gra.se<, 'at a top dress
ing applied in the early stages of the growth
of these plants.
It is well knowanto our readers that we
are not much in favor of bringing mandro ten
thousand or live thousand miles, and having
the farmers pay twice as much for it as the
importers oiuld alfford to sell i: for, as has
lately been shown with relation to guanao.
We have thought, and have said freely, bet
ter husband the home supplies, and make
them -go as far as possible-.all the manure of
the barn, everything that can be composted
with it advantageously, the swamp muck, al
most everything found, the gree.t sand marl,
which is tihe cheapest fertilizer now ofleredl
for all who cant obtain it without much inland
carriage, and so of every fertilizing s.ubstanrce
at home or near home.,
But we are by no mnsln sure but that
these immense beds of nsi rate or ,oola fouti
in South America maay yet pirve .of gre.at
advantage to this counafry ; anid we should 1,e
glad if trials of its value for v-arious crotps,
especially for corn, sorghum, anrd the gra.sses
could be made.
The Old Brown Cot.
By UDwARD A. DAaSr.
Among the scenes to memory dear
To which mny fancy oft returns,
And for whose long-lost days of joy
My spirit in its adness yearns,
There's none whaich ems se dear to we
As that where passed life's early morn ;.
There's none for which I sigh so oft
As for the cot-where I was born.
The old brown cot, the low brown cot
The moss-grown cot beneath the hill;
Though years have passed since I was there
I love it, oh, I love it still !
It stood beside the running brook
Whose waters turned the noisy will,
And close beneath the tall so<d oaks
That nodded on the sloping hill.
The woodlbine ceeping o'er the walls,
The sunshine on the grassy plot,
low beautiful they were to we
When home was in that old brown cot !
Though I may view the fairest lands
On which the sun iu glory beam.,
And dwell in climes more beautiful
Than poets visit in their dreasms;
Still will affection linger ritund
That loved and consecrated spot,
And tears will fall as I go back
To boyhood and the uhf1 brown cot.
