An Interesting . Affricultaral Experiment,
Shellsburq, Iowa," Feb: 1870. Several
years since I selected a plot of new. jriclK
alluvial prairie, TTlth a clepttr rrf nearDw
feet of black surface soil, x or six years in
succession I grew upon the plot such crops
as I could remove almost completely, root
a nd branch, . from the ground such , as
crops of currant bushes, and grapevines
from cuttings, seedling apple trees, follow
ed by beans, rutta bagas, &c,'At the end of
ix years of careful cleaning everything
from the soil, this plot, with the land ad
joining (fanned in the ordinary way), was
prepared, and in due time planted corn.
With the same culture, the contrast in the
crop surprised all who had Hot given this
vegetable mold-doctrine some study. -Upon
the side cropped in the ordinary way, the
growth of stalks and of large, well-ripened
ears, were above a good average prairie
rrop. Upon the experimental plot the
blunted looking stalks and ears reminded
i one of cobble knolls of Jew -England. s..
' For the eighth year the cornstalks were
removed from the soil J by pulling, and the
land, with that adjoining, was sown to bar
ley. Again we had the same contrast. On
the one side a strong, well ripened growth,
with half developed heads, too short to be
all cut by the reaper.
No chemical analysis wonld detect in
this rich, deep, alluvial Boil at the end of
the eighth year, any deficiency in the ele
ments of plant growth, aside fromlta vega
table mold. By practice upon our rich soil
it is found that even dry cornstalks or stub
ble plowed into the ground year after year,
will hold the land measurably- ill good
condition. But perhaps no portion of the
Ptate will be more benefitted , by . alterna
ting with clover than the great prairies, i
Why ? Simply because when the great
natural supply of humus, furnished by the
virgin prairie sod, is exhausted, it must be
renewed. J. E. Btjdd, in the German- j
town Telegraph. j
Stirring Soil Around Trees. Open
ing or lightening the soil around the roots
of tres, either In the spring or fall, for thm
purpose of letting, in warmth, and afford
ing a freer medium for the expansion and
development of the roots, is of great value
in promoting the health and vigor of the
tree. All trees, whether fruit or ornamcn-.
tal, young or old, indigenous or exotic, are
vastly benefitted by this process: In old
orchards, the 6oil about the trunks of trees,
and to a considerable distance from them,
in every direction, should be carefully bro
ken, and the upper surface, to the depth of
three or four inches, removed in the
tpring, every four or five years. The eggs
of the curculio and other insects are depoji
ited in this stratum, and If not removed or
destroyed, will produce insects, the rava-.
ges of which the succeeding, year, will be
nrmliitivA fif far trrpaifr Iosh than the ex
pense of-removing the soil and replacing
n wim compose or iuhlu. . ai
hopeless undertaking to attempt the. culti
vation of good fruit, when no measures are
resorted to to obviate the fatal ravages of
this detestable and insidious foe, and the
remedy now suggested la by no means ex
pensive, if we take Into consideration the
advantages otherwise resulting to the trees
from its application. '. - '
Any good soil, taken from the open fields
or culUvated lands, may b&u?edas a sub
stitute for compost, and a very small quari-:
titv will suffice. Even if no fresh matter
is applied, I would recommend the remov
al of the surface soil, and -would replace it
when convenient.: Chip mazmreor old
dung covered with straw, answers well for
that purpose. GermaMown TcUgraplu

Scours in Cows. I once had a valua
ble cow that was troubled with scours, and
I expected to lose her, till using this reme
dy, she was saved: One quart of wheat
flour, tied tight in a cloth, put into a ket
tle or boiling water, and boiled three hours.
After it was taken out" and cooled; it -was
Sjunded fine, and given Aer to.eaLdry
y twice feeding with this she was cured,
and never troubled with it again It is
said to have been equally effectual in cases
of dysentery with persons. J . B. 8. '-
Free trade journals have recently been
making a great noise over what they are
pleased to style " decline of Ameritjan ship

tariff system. V The following; from the
Washington correspondent of theNew
York ? Trio arte, shows that instt-ad of de
clining our shipping interests are reviving:
" The Bureau of Statistics is in laily re
ceipt of a large number of applications for
