GUANO PREPARED FOR USE
Guano as Found on Islands.
In tho wise economy of Providence, ther has been
aggregated oil various islands of the PacIfic and
At antic Occans, large natural deposits of Guano.
Witlh the exception of the Peruvian Islands, those
deposits are all of the same general character as to
coniositioii, but ditter iterially in ridchness, physial
structuro and condiion. Thoy may be classified as
earthy, pe'tritied and inineral. It is doubtful if the
latter classes are properly called Guano.
Tho value of these deposits conilsts solely, as is
well known, in the phosphorio acid they contain,
which always neeessariy erists in the forimof the in
soluble neutral photphate of limo, or In some other in
soluble conhitatlon. It could not, in the nature of
things, e"A in the Guano as found on the islands, In
Ience, 4. is true that no uatno, as imported from
the islands, can contain slde.'do p/w.phates.
Now, it is a knownfact that thero is no comparlson
to vahue betveen soluble and insoluble phosphates.
'eio former Is in condition for inmediate appropria
tion by the )lant, and its offects in the promotion of
vegetable growth and developmnent are marked and
wonderful; while the latter is comparatively inert
and inactro, except when In combination with proper
proportions of fo'rmentable animal matter, in which con
dition it ylds to gradual solution.
It must be noted here, that these Phosphatic
Guanos do not contain animal matter, as Iported
fromu the Islands.
It Is the province of science and skill to convert
these Insoluble phosphates into soluble forms, by
whIch these vast resources afforded by Nature are
rendered available for the highest utility.
Hence, as soluble phosphoric acid has a higher agn
6ltural value than the insoluble acid as it exials.in the
atural deposIts, It must be true that no Guano, as it is
imported, can possess a value equal to a Guano which
has been rendered soluble by the appliances developed
A LAW OF NATURE.
The above deductiona appear to be in harmony
with what may be recognized as a law of Nature. It
will. be found, upon reflection, that a large class of
the most useffil materitl gifts of Providence to man
kind are sup plied i crude forms. To fit them for
the uses designed, an equivalent Is demanded In the
exercise of tat inelligence and skill, which is the
peculiar goft to man by the same beneficent Provi
Gold, Copper, Lead, Zinc, Iron, Gutta, Percha, Petro
Ium, and a long list of similar natural rolucts,
which are adapted to Innumeranlo uses for the con
venience and necessitles of mankind, are alifurnished
by the hand of Nature in Ciude forms, In which con
dition they are of no praelicul utility.
The natIral deposits of Guino form no exception
to this general law. It is foiund to exist in crude
insoluble form, and must be fitted for the important
uses for which it wvas provided, by undergoing prepa
ration dictated by science.
- PERUVIAN GUANO.
It may be thought that Peruvi'ian 01:ao is an ex
ccptIon to the above. We think the contrary may
be shown. It ia quite true, Pernvian Guano has been
extensively used with good restilts for th( time eiin,
but whatever may have been tLo opinion enter
salned, in the earlier periods of its use, it will not he
k 6ubted n,), by those who gie the sulpt inteli ient on
eidleration, that it is not bc.t udapted to use in the condi
mfl in whI~ich i is i.npurt<:d.
Peruvian Guano is the only highly ammoniaeil
Guano discovered. IRain never 1iblts on the islands -
Khence its ammonia is retained. That it ahounds in
(his element 'ro icxcss, and is df- ,nt in the more im
portant element of phosphate of liue, is caipable of
rational deduction froim facts developed by long ex

ammonia, which will not he iapplied to its proper use
N4his country, until it can be made available to sup
that elenent to the unammoniacal Guanos when
belng prepared for use, at a cost much less than its
present market price. The present high price of Peru
Nian Guano, makes its use for this purpose too ex
Vensive compared with other sournes Pf aninonla.
More than twelve years ago, we published an
rticle In which we attempted to show by dedulictions
.om facts, that the cont.nued alpplication of Peru
n U4mano must sooner or later brhig about a coi
tion of exhaustion of the soil. This conclusion
as predicated uponthe fact that Its applicationfutr
Wishes the soil with less phwphate of ime than the crops
grown renores; hence we urged that a grqdual but
certain process of exhaustion wvas kept up, which
would sioner or later be realized in diminished pro
ducts, though not nuoticeabmle in the vegetale growth.
Th'at sesuh,. is now beginning to be realized.
It is the uniroral opinion and tesxtamony1 of farmiers
'thea Peruvian Gutano is not so good as in former
*eare." T1he truth is, as shown by bite examiationsa
ynuialysis, ihat it is identically the samec as impiorted in
T 'ho tact is, its use pmas ahausted the soil of phos
phates, and, the condition is realized which confirms
ear deductions made years ago.
It Is, found that crops of straw are grown, but
with diminishal yields of grain, and farmiers attribute
that result to the wrong cause, when they aesume It
is the fault of t he G uano. it in the invtal resut of
its itse. Tihe workc of depreciation has been silently
going on, unnoticedl.

r SOLUBLE PACIFIC GUANO,
Wie have urged that (Aluble Parfii Guano should
puroduc a harger yiel of grain than Peruvian, and
such is found to be the case. T1hme fact was de'mon
strated by a recent examnination of a field of wheat
necar Ilichmond, Va., by three gentlemen. The facts
One part of a field had been dressed with Peruvian
Guano, and the other with a like quantity per acre of
PacIfic. The eye could discern no difference in the
appearance or growth, both having been sown with
the sameO variety and quantity of wheat.
Upon carcful and repeated examination it was found
that the heads of the wheat, to which t'eruvian was
applied, contained te grains to the esh, the aep

verification of the above at"tement we refer to Aesrs.
Allison & Addieon, Richmond, Va.
These facts constitute an Irresistible (emonstration
of the truth of our leductions In regard to Peruvian
Guano, and show that is not best adated to its uses,

To secure the best resdts fromi farmin", Planters
must cultivate only good land, or land nmae good by
nanuring and tihorough preparation. By 11 suboiling,
the land is saved from washing, holds longer the

land to counteract the sumatmer droughts. To sub
qoil, turn under the grass, &c., with a good turning

Dear Sir-I have used 'eruvian iuano, more or

the other. I had one field of about 18 acres ianured

the quall 3' of the land as a basis) is better than any
other field iminured with either. 'ThIe -ield on this

Dear Sir-Being aware that I experimented this

with 1 Peruvian," you ask imy views of the one comn
pared with the other, whieb will state:
My opinion is, that while the " Peruvian " is the
more immediate, it is not so lasting in its effects as
the " Soluible," nor does vegetation stand drought so
vell with the former as with the latter.
In my experiment tfilis year, I contrasted the effects
of stable manure with the " Soluble Pacifle Guainoo"
it rates of expense as follows: sixteen dollars ($10)
per acre of the former, anl(d ten dollars ($10) perincre
of the latter; and the result has been in favor of tile
Soluble Pacific. The cotton pliant stood the drought
better and was more imuplroved by it than that whei'e
I used tihe stable mamnilte. * * * * *
