Rutabaga Turnips--The Great Value
of the Turnip Crop.
Here we are at the commencement of
July, asking our readers to be busy now
in making preparation for the turnip crop.
We presume, however, that this has been
done in part by thorough cowpenning on
most of the plantations, where it is a good
and universal-practice to pen the cattle
during the spring months on the'small
lots intended for this crop. This prac
tice, with frequent plowings, puts the soil
in fine tilth, and the droppings of cattle,
sheep and swine, if regularly subverted,
usually make the'land sufficiently rich to
produce fine bulbs. It is the proper time,
all in this month, to sow Rutabagas, and
our preparation of-the soil and mode of
putting in the seed, is briefly as is practi
cable, and-with each plowing give the
field a good harrowing. This is done
once a week for a month, previous to
planting, and when we are ready to plant,
we bed up the land eighteen inches be.
tween the rows, taking care to have it
done perfectly and evenly. This bed is
then opened with a very small plow, and
in the absence of a seed drill, a bottle,
with a quill inserted in the cork, may be
used to drill the seed. If a small quan
tity of ashes is placed with the seed, they
freely fall from the bottle, upon its being
held over the drill-neck downwards
and giving it a good jerking shake at each
step. A careful hand can drill two acres
a day in this manner, and a little practice
soon enables the operator to thus drop
the proper quantity of seed.. We cover
with a rake or light brush'harrow.
The best manure for turnif - is bone
Slust or leached ashes. A good compost
may be made by using guano, peat-earth,
and ashes. This, when properly tempered
with charcoal, pulverized very finely, is a
capital application to the. turnip field.
We have-used Mape's Improved Super
phosphate of Lime with great success -last
season, making an application of one hun
dred and sixty pounds to the acre. The
turnip tribe of plants are all great feeders,
and if any coarse manure is buried in the
field, it will be of service to the crop.
Rutabaga turnips require plowing and
hoeing, and speedy thinning is of essen
tial service to this variety. They should
stand at least ten inches apart in the drills,
and.he kept clean of grass and weeds.
We have given these directions for the
cultivation of Rutabagas, because we
consider. them the most valuable of the
turnip family. They stand the winter's
frost better than white turnips, and can
.be fed off the land without housing or
growing pithy. They require too, to be
planted one month earlier than common
turnips. Being of the same habit and
growth of the cabbage, they must be
plan'ted at any seasonable time during the
summer, but we prefer July for the regu.
We hope all our readers *ill agree
with us, that the turnip crop is one of
great value, and can be profitably grown
even by Southern planters. It only re
quires the proper preparation of the soil,
in most instances, to make very fair tur
nips. In England this is the farmer's
great crop, for on it he feeds his sheep,
fattens his oxen, and even learns his horses,
in a measure, to live on. Ratabagas. It
is economy here to have a fine "turnip
patch," and we see no reason why so im
portant a culture might not be increased,
and made to fill a gap ini our rural econo
my which should certainly be looked to.
Benefits of Agricultural Fairs.
Every thing from the lips or pen of
Daniel Webster still continues to be read
with interest. The following is an extract
fr-om an Address of his, delivered at the
Annual Fair of the Norfolk Agricultural
Society, at Dedeamn, Massachusetts, in
the year 1849:
"The principle of Association-the
practice' of bringing men together bent
on the'same general end, uniting their in
tellectual and their physical efforts to that
purpose is a great improvement in the
present age. We saw it years ago-a
perhaps I might say centuries ago. It
began in the corporations of the old wat-Id.
It began in the -professional associations
of the world-in the legal, the medical
and the theological. But it was long. in
that country and in this, before the prin
ciple of combination came to be acted
upon in the great system of Agriculture
-before it was brought to that pursuit of
life which is the main pursuit of life-be
Iore agriculturists were brought to act in
unison. And the reason is obvious. In
the city communities strive together.
The merchants anid shipowners can come
together at the spound of a bell. The me
chanics, generally, living in populous pla
ees, may do the same. They have the
opportunity of' interchanging sentiments
every how-, and what one knzows', all know,
aind what is the experience of one, all
soon become acquainted with. But the
atg ricultural population is scattered over
aill the fields of the country. Their labors
and their toils are in some degree isolated.
They afe in the midst of the hills and the
valleys, and the recesses of every solita
ry forest. There is no 'Change for them
to assemble upon at noon. There arc no
Atheneumis for themi to meet at in the
evening and converse on theli- inferests.
"Why gentlemnen, every, man obtains
a very great portion of all that he knows
in this world, by conversation. Conver
satiopn, intercouse with other minds is the
general source of most of our knowledge.
. Books do something, but every man has
no opportunity to read. It is conversa
tion that improves. If any one of us is
here to-diy, learned or unlearned, should
deduct what he has learned by conversa..
tion from what he knows, he would find
but little left, and that little not of the
most valuable kind. It is conversation
it is the meeting of men face to face, and~
talking over what they have common in
interest-it is this intercourse that makes
men sharp, intelligent, ready to commiu
iiate to others, and ready to receive in
tiinzations from thorn, and ready to act
upon those only which they receive by
this oral communication.
" Therefore if there were not a' thing
exhibited-if there were not a good pair
ofsteers, nor a fine horse, nor likely cow
in'the whole country, if there be ladies,
wives and daughters-if there be those
connected with the tillage of land, I say
that these annual meetings are highly im
pdrtant to progress in the art to which
~they refer. I come here as a poor farmer,
to. meet with other better farmers, to re
ceive from them any intimation their ex
perience may teach, anid desirous only of
suggesting something for their reflection
which now or hereafter may draw it use
fully, to something in the agricultural
' VALUE OF PEAs AND BEANs.--These ar
tieles, says an exchange, have been found,
by chemical analysis, to abound in nitro
gen. The inference has been tliat they
wodld be specially useful in supporting
tewaste of the mucles of animal and
it has been suggested that they would be
particulary useful in the production of
wool. 'They are evidently valuable for
these purposes, but not the less valuable
for the production of fit. Those persons
who have used peas for fattening hogs,
consider them worth as- much as Indian
corn. In districts where that grain is not
grown, very fine pork is produced from
peas.. Dickson, in his work "On the
breeding of Live Stock," states that a
sweep stakes was entered into between
five East Lothiam farmers, to be claimed
by one who should be pronounced the
best feeder of cattle. Forty cattle of
the same breed, and in equal condition,
were divided between them, as fairly as
possible. They were put up together the
second week in September, and killed at
Christmas following. The winner of the
stakes fed his cattle wholly on boiled beans
To Keep Butter Hard and Cool.
A writer in the Scientific American re
commends to the ladies a very simnple ar.
rangement for keeping butter nice and
cool in the hottest weather. Procure a
large, new flower-pot of suficient size to
cover the butter plate, and also a saucer
large enough for the flower-pot to rest in
upside down ; place a trivet or meat stand,
such as is sent to the oven when a joint is
baked, in the saucer, and put on this trivet
the plate of butter; now fill the saucer with
water, and turn the flower-pot over the
butter, so that its edge will be below the
water. The hole in the flower-pot must
be fitted with a cork; the butter will
then be in what we may call an air-tight
chamber. Let the whole of the outside
of the flower-pot be then thoroughly
drenched with water and place it in as
cool a place as you can. If this be done
over night, the butter will be " firm as a
rock" at breakfast time; or, if placed
there in the morning, the butter will be
quite hard for use at tea hour. The rea
son of this is, that when water evaporates,
it produces cold; the porous pot draws
up the water which in warm weather
quickly evaporates from the sides and
thus cools it, and as no warm air can ncw
get at the butter it becomes firm and cool
in the hottest day.
Prom the Valley Farmer.
To Drive the Weevil from Mills and
Numerous remedies have been pro.
posed to protect wheat and corn from the
destructive ravages of the weevil (curculho
granarius,) but most of them have been
impracticable, or too expensive. Tar has
been found a certain and economical agent
for expelling these insects. A writer in
a French publication asserts, that-his father
had, a long time ago, his granaries and
barns infested with these insects-; so much
so that they penetrated into all the chests,
and among the linen. He placed an open
cask impregnated with tar, in the barn,
and then in the granaries; at the end of
some hours the weevils were seen climb-.
ing along the walls by myriads, and flying
in all directions from the cask. On mov
ing the tarred vessel from place to place,
the premises were, in a few days, corn
pletely cleared of these troublesome and
pernicious guests. The farmer who in
troubled with these insects may, as soon
as he pereives their presence, imipregnate
the surface of some old planks with tar,
and place them as .r'equired in his grana
ries; care must be taken to renew the
tar from time to timec in the course of the
yar, to prevent their return.
The same means may not prove equally
-efctive with the grain moth, an ash-col
ored miller, called by some a weevif.
TR AxsPLANTING EvERGnEs.--The Lon
don Gardner's Chronicle describes the
fllowing method as promising gieat effi
cacy in reviving plants dried by having
had their roots too long out of the ground,
and insuring their safe renoval in late
spring and summer, and as being especial
ly fitted for evergreens when transplanted :
" Make a hole in the ground to contain
about 20 gallons of water, and pour about
16 gallons into it; add to this about 20
lbs. of barn-yard manure mtixed with
about the siime qu'antity of fine rich soil.
By workinig the mixture for a long time,
and carefully, you reduce it to the con
sistency of' white-wash. In this mixture,
steep the roots of your plants just befo~re
putting them into the groundl ; the ear-th
throwvn over them into. the hole sticks to
the roots, which immediately begin to
swell. At the very first movemuent of
sap, rootlets appear through this .coatinug,
which gives the immeidiate man~ure. and
not only brings on, but secures the t'urther
foration of roots. Once fairly started.
there is nothing more to fear."
SPEcwmlo FORt BUos oN 'INEs.-Ilaving
seen by your paper that umany truckers
in your section are anxious to ascertain
a simple and sure remedy to destroy bugs
on squashes, cueumbers, and the like, I
will give you one which is alnost a spe
ciic, and within the reach of every onle,
especially those living on the sea-board.
Procure fresh fish-of any kind what
ever, the commonest and cheapest ,just as
good-a sufficient quantity, according to
circumstances, say one peck to a barrel
of water. Let them stand therein a day
or two. in order to commence decompo
sition, anid omit thmer necessarily unpleas
ant odor ; then remove the barrel to your
patch, just dampening the leaves.
In addition to driving away the bugs,
your plants will become green and heal
thy, and soon grow beyond the reach of
any titture swarm of depredators. It
may be necessary to use the water two or
three times in the course of two weeks,
but remember that every application is
equivalent to a dressing of mannre, which
is very trifling. Fresh fish oflid is of
equal value with the fish.-Cor. Co. Gent.
DAIRv SArLr.-A correspondent of the
New England Fahrmer furnishes the fol
lowing mode of preparing dairy salt:
"Take the best crystal salt, wash it, dis
solve, strain, settle anid turn off; boil it
down in some per fectly clean iron vessel,
skim as boilIng; when stirr-ed oil' dry, it
will produce fine salt, wvhite as the drift
ing snow, which, if stirred up in a glass
vessel of water, will produce no sedimeint,
and will be distinct from any mineral or
other possible impurity."
