As for ourself, we cannot plead guiHy to
the charge of losing many potatoes with
the rot. The first year (140) they be
gaa to decay to a considerable extent in
this section of (ho country, wo planted on
a piece of low land, highly manured with
fresh manure from the stable. Wo suc

were a few decayed potatoes when they were
dug. Since then our practice has been to
plant upon turf land, as dry and loamy as
we have on the farm, and wc use no ma
nures that undergo a rapid fermentation
when placed in the soil. Wo have used
leached ashes alone for the potatoes; and
have increased tho yield 2") per cent, by
their use; nnd have also used a compost of
leached allies, saw-dust, leaves, &e., with
advantage. With the compost wc have re
alized 3U0 bushels per acre. Bolh the ash

from 1.') to 20 loads to tho acre. We have
heaid of the use of dry saw-dust alone,
placed upon tho potato in tho hill, and co
vered slightly with earth. This method is
said to bo a remedy for the rot, and gives
a product possessing rare excellence for
the table. We have never made use of
paw-dust in an iindecoinposcd state, and
cannot speak of ita merits from experience.
If any of our readers have experimented
