Agricultural Department-
AVky do Wc riough?
DM any of our reader? crer aok this
question of liitnsolf, and try to answer
It? 1Ye npprrhenfl not. Some peroral
millions in t)ic United States are in the
daily habit of doing the very necessary
work, but they, Ai ho liare asked or can
Ml why, rosy be counted by tens. AVc
belonp; to this little minority. VTe hare
oftcu Troi!lercd to oisrselvcs, and sought
dilligently to discover, all the reasons
why we plongh. Onr success in elicit
ing patififictory answers, has l)een very
gratifying. Somo of these we respect
fully offer to the consideration of our
readers. 1. "Wc are most commonly told
that wc plough to stir the soiL WelL
why stir the soil ? Well, we are told, so
that the crop will grow. This is aliout
the substance and the words of mopt of
our answers. Not Tcry lucid, it is true,
yet the germ of the philosophy of plough
ing is there. We do plough to stir the
ground that crops may grow. All soils
adapted to the growth of farm products
contain the natural food of such plants
this food the plants will naturally seek
through numberless small rootlets. But
it is the natural tendency of all soils, and
especially of clay, to stiffen and grow
hard, from lying undisturbed under the
influence of a burning sun and beating
rain. . Hence, in a iittle while, the little
rootlets, which are the . plant feeders,
could uot penetrate the hardened soil,
were it not for the pulverization of the
soil by the plough.
' Again, the plough not only helps
tlie plant to collect what food is near
and ready made, but manufactures more,
by opening tho way for those great fer
tilizers, air and water. By disintegra
ting the soil, every particle is made use
ful, and brought into action. While it
is hard and stiff, it is impenetrable by
air or water, and whatever stores of
plant food it may contain, arc hermetical
ly scaled. But Jet. once the bright
plough share gleam through it, and all of
its wealth is poured out, and the hungry
plants suck it up, and transmute it as by
magic into the gorgeous leaf, the lovely
bloom and luscious fruit
3. And yet again, we plough to kill
the weeds, to keep down the grass.
What is food for the plants, is food also
for tho weeds, and if left uncared fotf,
one ploughing were almost worse thgn
uoue. But if kept up, iu this, as iiVoth
er ways, the plough is a blessing
4. Iu the fall and winder also, we
plough to kill tne rootso'f weeds and
grass, and ihe eggs oftfsccts, by expos
ing them to the rigours of winter. So
too, we open th soil to tho disintegra
.tion power ofe frost and snow of win
ter, ana niid in the spring, when seed
time comes, a light and mellow soil, free
II of weeds and insects, all from fall plough-
.Jiiig.

tlier use, scarcely less important, which
is in incorporating manure with the soil
? J where, in time, it becomes digested
ill and assiniliated to tho wants of the
ij plant.
So much for the popular, and what
j would commonly be called, the practical
reasons why we plough. There are oth
er leasons, in our judgment, quite as
pract ical ; yet, as they cannot be explain
ed without the use of a few chemical
terms, we will call them scientific
Though they arc no more entitled so to
be called in strict parlance, than those
that we have given. Of these, wo give
only two this morning.
L Ammonia and carbonic acid are es
sential elements to the growth of plants.
These gases are constituent parts also of
the air. It is a property of porous bod
ies to attract these gases, and other
tilings being equal, this power of attrac
tion is iu proportion to the amount of
surface exposed to the air. That is to
say, the more a soil is pulverized and
permeable to the" air, the greater will be
its power of attraction.
2d. Again, it is established that almost
every soil contains matters that has what
is termed a chemical affinity for ammo
nia that is, naturally attracts and ab
sorbs it This is especially true of clay
of almost every kiud, and still more es
pecially of limestone clay. As the soil is
stirred, and these substances mobilized,
j its capacity for absorbing ammonia is dc-
vcloped. The supply of plant food, is
ft increased, the plant flourishes, and in
turn draws fresh supplies from the air,
through its lungs, which are its leaves.
It may thus be readily seen how a well
ploughed field will drain its neighbor that
is but illy tended, of much of its health
and strength. In view of these conside
rations, therefore, we commend to our
farmers the laconic and wiso advice of
one who was successful beyond his day
as a farmer. When asked for tho secret
of his uniformly fine ' crops, ho replied,
Tbat to God, axd Keep the Ploughs
agoiso.''
Dcst and Cheapest Method of Ma
nuring a Farm. v
The 3Tark Lane Express contains an
article upon this subject by Jfr. llechi,
from which we extract tho following :
"I am often amused at the various un
founded charges laid at my door, seeing
that they originate in the brain of erro
ucous conviction and unfounded belief.
I should think that your correspondent,
'Kent,' tad convinced himself by his
own experiment that making meat is
the cheapest way of obtaining manure,
but as he still seems doubtful, I would
recommend him to read Mr. Xawe's pa
per on that 6iibicct, in tho Koyal Agri-
, , i - i t i i. : 1. -

to convince him, scientifically. A far
mer will seldom fail to have au abun
dant crop of corn on one-half his farm, if
he makes, as I do, ten score oi meat per
acre on every acre of his ftirnv The la
borer makes thirty-two score per acre.
How the meat is made is dependent on
circumstances. Nothing pays me bet
ter than giving sheep one pound of rape
cakc rcr dav : as they irct Cit they will
cat nearly one and a half pounds per
dar. liapocakcs cost JLO per tun; as ma
nure it is worth JC3 per tun, and we
believe that seven pounds of rapecake
will make one pound of mutton. Fat
tening hogs entails a loss of about ten
ior cent as an average, bat still it is
mwch cheaper than guano, fifty-six lbs. of

S. A laborer generally fats one
pig, using about tour pack of barley
meal, and adding alout six score to the
weight of his pig. This, on his garden
of one-eighth of an acre, would be 48
score per acre on the consumption of 15
to 2G quarters of barley per acre."
Form and Action of Saddle Horses.
When a horseman sits on a good road
ster, he need not take the trouble to pick
his way when riding down a rongh
country lane or over broken ground, be
cause the forefoot of a clever saddle
horse, be the pace, wUk, trot or canter,
are always well forwiand fall flatly
and evenly on the ground ; and when in
action the fore legs are sufficient but
not too much" bent, the action coming
direct from the shoulders. But the most
agreeable feature experienced in riding
perfect saddle horses is, the case and
elasticity with which they move in all
their paces, thereby sparing the rider
any feeling of fatigue. Not only is the
number of hacks and hunters very limit
ed, but those we have except a few in
the hands of masters of hounds and mem
bers of hnnts are too apt at an early
age to display some of the infirmities to
which their race arc now so subject, in
the shape of curbs, splints, and spavins,
consequent upon the hurry the breeders
are in to bring them into the market be
foi e they am ve at a proper working age.
Thousands of capital saddle horses are
annually sacrificed from this very cause.
I attribute the downward tendency of
our breed of saddle horses, to the rage
for speed, which is now so prominent a
feature on the English turf, but when
we take into consideration what long
considered and careful selection on our
turf has effected, when the sole object
was speed, we may reasonably anticipate
as important and beneficial results from
equally jndicious selection, when our
object is to produce horses possessing
that fine union of qualities so essential
to good saddle horses.
There arc few people who know what
constitutes good shoulders in a horse a
good many asserting that they should be
Jine, meaning by this, lean at the withers.
It is, However, certain mat tne snooiaers
of a j'oung horse intended to carry
weight can hardly be too thick at that
place, provided they are not too thick at
the points or the icwer ends, while in'
clining their tops well back and leaving
a good space between the end or tne
mane and the pomel of the aaddle.
There is a certain cross-bone which con
nects the lower end of the shoulder
blades with the hone's fore-legs which
very materially affects his action. When
this is too long it throws the fore-legs too
much back, causing the hone to stand
over like a cart hone ; and such an ani
mal, besides being unpleasant to ride,
when at all tired, is very likely to come
down. I am here stating what is well
known to good judges, but I write for
the many. 1 would also observe that
the form" of shoulders I here recommend
only contribute to good action, they
alone do not secure it Good hind-leg
action is as important as good action in
the fore-legs. The hock joints should
bend well, when in action, bringing the
hind feet well forward, but without stri
king the fore feet, commonly called over
reaching. It i3 a common practice to pay little
attention to tho action of the hind legs,
so long as the horse possesses what is
termed "fine knee-up action f but all su
perior horses, of whatever breed, are
eminently characterized by good hind
leg action ; for be tho shoulders ever 60
good, unless the action of the hind-legs
is also good, the horse is uneasy to ride,
because the action of the two sets of legs
are not properly balanced, and, no mat
ter how accomplished the rider may be,
it is with difficulty he can accommodate
his seat to the action of such a horse.
Such a horse is unsafe to ride, and his
rider, if a judge of action, feels that he is
so ; but if the action of the hind or fore
legs be properly balanced, the rider icela
his horse firm under him, and that he
cannot very well come down. Indeed,
in this case ho seems to be riding
up hill, while under opposite circumstan
ces, he seems to be riding down hill.
One important point which I consider
has been gained by the breeding of hors
es for speed is, the great length between
the hip-bone and the hock, as exhibited
in the greyhound ; and although the pos
session of this point is not so absolutely
necessary, yet I, for one, should be in
clined "to give its possesor the prefer
ence for a hunter of the present day, for
the horse either is, or ought to be, capa
ble of great speed. But our hunter had
not formerly this shape, and did not so
much require it There is, however,
one objection against any excessive
length between hip and hock, which is,
that it frequeutly causes over-reach, a
most disagreeable infirmity for cither
hunter or roadster. A horse's hips
should be wide, fo carry weight, and his
loins highly muscular, but the lower
ends of his shoulders should be light
His chest cannot be too full, but it may
be too wide for speed, as well as for
agreeable action, causing a rolling mo
tion, very unpleasant to the rider.
Great depthof the chest is a powerful
recommendation, and the ribs before the
ghtli3 cannot be too long, but the back
ribs (when much speed is required)
should be rather short For very fine
action, the shoulder-blades must be long,
while they cannot be so without inclin
ing well back. If a horse so formed has
good hind-leg action, he will be very
valuable as an active weight-carrying
cob, because this form of shoulders is, I
regret to say, now rarely to be found
among our saddle horses, as in tho major
ity of them that come within the pale of
a "moderate price, tho girths are contin
ually slipping forward, causing the rider
to sit on the horse's withers rather than
on hi3 back : and this is one cause of
horses falling down, 88 the weight of the
rider pressing on the top cf their shoul
ders seriously interferes with their free
action, and when they make a slight
stumble it is next to impossible to recov
er their feet The best height for horses
intended as hacks, is about fifteen
hands. Tall horses are not so good for
hacks as those of lower stature, as they
do not more with so much ease and
lightness, wearing their legs more and
causing more fatigue to their riders.
The majority of tall horses are now-a-days
tall only because they have long
legs, which are very objectionable, as
they never wear well, and are mostly al
lied with a very shallow body. These
horses may do well enough when a
showy appearance is the only object in
view; but they are not calculated for
hard work, or to ride in hilly country.
I may dismiss this subject by remarking
that 1 would not advise the purchaser to
reject a horse just because he does not
happen to possess all the good qualities
I have here recommended, s they will
remember tho old adage, "That there
never was a perfect horse." London Re

Crrr vs. Cocstrt Lite. Cory OTa-
nus, of tho Brooklyn Eagle gives his ex
perience of the felicities of country life
at this season. The locality is some
where in New Jersey :
The place Is a lonely spot, but wants
improving. The sidewalks are not flag
ged, and there are no street lamps.
No ice cream saloon, no lager, no al
dermen or any of the luxuries of city
life.
But there is a great deal of nature.
The natore consists mostly of trees, rail
fences, eernfic lus and mosquitoes.
Particularly mosquitoes.
Also dors. Everybody in the country
keeps dogs. They are animals of large
pattern, not particular about the breed.
They earn their bread by barking after
cows horses and strangers.
There, is a pictnrepquo village, com
posed of a tarern and two blacksmith
heps. Being situated on the banks of a
canal, it may b rcCTrded as a watering
p!c. The gracelm canal ooats gently
gliding at the rale of two miles a veek,
reminds von of Venice ami gondolas.
It rrta. h re-setnbles Venice before Ve-
Farming is very serene. You get up
in the middle of the night and miik the
cows vnd split wood for breakfast You
then hoe tlie corn till the breakfast is
ready. - - t
; After breakfast yon feed the pigs and
hunt eggs
Then hoe the corn till dinner is ready.
By way of variety you then milk the
cow's and feed the pigs.
The balance of the evening is spent in
the cheerful recreation of sparring with
the mosquitoes.
Then there's the girls.
Most of the fanners raise girls. They
are useful to feed chickens and sit up
with the young men in the best room on
Sunday evening. .
Country girls are nice.
If you should want to get married at
any time, I'll take you out to Jersey and
introduce you.. .
The Jersey girls wear waterfalls, ex
hibit a preference for male society, are
very fond of peanuts.
When you go'courting them, yotnnust
always take a pocket full of peanuts if
yon don't want to be considered mean.
The plulopena business is very popu
lar. The girls are apt to expect it I
have jusjt bought out a fancy store, and
sent it up there by express, to square my
outstanding liabilities in that line.
Otherwise, Bitting up with country
girls is very refreshing. Sitting with one
arm around her waist, the other hand en
gaged in flattening mosquitoes, while she
tells you all about the quilting party last
winter at Aunt Jerusha's; what Sally
Ann Spock wore when she was married
to Josiah Corndodger, and how many
chickens they had when they commenced
housekeeping, is an enjoyment not be
met with in town.
