UNION AND AMERICAN.
FARM AND GARDEN.
Autumn is tho time for selecting a
stock for keeping over, as well as choico
breeding fowls of whatever variety we
intend to try the next season. A cor
respondent of tho Ohio Farmer says
all old and needless" fowls should bo
cleared out, to give the choicer flock a
better chance. It will prove a failure if
too many aro kept; better err on tho
other extreme. A small number always
pays handsomely. Forty to sixty of a
good kind in one lot, will shorten the
face and lengthen the pocket of the
cwner, if he docs his part. Feed and fit
them well in tbo fall, and prepare qnar
ters for winter laying, for it is good policy
and much moro satisfactory to have hens.

highest prices, returning their cost many
V fold, than to be a bill of expense, return

among a majority of farmers.
Cni-ting Out .Manure In the Fall.
Our springs aro often so wet that tho
painting season is crowded into a very
tew days, and it greatly helps the hurried
labors of seed sowing to have the manure
upon the ground. Some of our best
farmers, says the American Agriculturist,
cart out the most of their summer-made
manuro in the fall and early winter, and
if the heaps are properly protected the
value of tho manure will be increased.
The advantage of making manuro under
cover is not that it is kept from moisture,
but that the degree of moisture can be
regulated, there being neither too much
ynor too little in any part of the mass.
Tho compost heap needs water to regu
late its fermentation. If it can be so
constructed that it will receive just water
enough, and so that the surface will not
dry, nothiig will bo lost Tho heaps
should have six or eight cords cf manuro
each, should be made four or five feet
high, well trodden down, with sides
sloping at an nngla of 45 degrees, to shed
a part of tho rain, and bjth top and sides
should hi covered with a few inches of
surfico soil or muck. The fermentation
will go on through the winter, and when
the compost is forked over in the spring
previous to spreading, as it should bp, it
will be found very "short," and better
than if it had lain in the open yard all
i winter. Most farmers havo not room
enough in their cellars and yards to store
all tho manure their stock is capable of
makiu, and it is a great advantage to
clean out all their accumulations in
autumn, as well as spring, and furnish a
new supply of muck, loam, or straw, for
tho winter. A much larger quantity of
manure is made by thi- course. If con
centrated manures aro used in addition
to those made upon tho place, they may
often be mixed with the yard manure in
these compost heaps with good results
The danger of burning tho seed, which so
often occurs when these artificial ma
nurcs are applied in tho hill in the un
diluted 6tate, would bo avoided, and if
the combined manure be used for spring
grain a imre even distribution is effected.
Why is it that our farmers, and
fincicrs, too, almost ignoro the good
qualities of the duck ? They are no more
difficult to rear than chickens, if proper
care is taken the first few weeks, and
they mature much earlier. The common
duck does nut require any more care .
but it is not to these that we specially
refer. AVe do not sec the advantage of
raising ducks that weigh two or three
pounds nt maturity, rather than those
that will weigh six to eight And there is
just that difference between the common
duck aid cither the Aylesbury or Kuuen
varieties. The Horticulturist says it costs
.hardly, if any, more to raise an Ayles
bury or llonen than tho common mud
puddle variety ; and laying beauty (which
is a great desideratum with us) aside,
there is still tho gain in weight as well
in the gain in eggs the coming year.
Either of the above varieties is de
sirable, and the choice may be said to lie
almost with one's fancy. Both aro ex
cellent layers, frequently commencing to
lay in the fall and continuing until cold
weather, recommencing in February or
March, and not ceasing until July or
August, and maturo at about tho same
ago, reaching about .the same weight,
which sdnctimes attains eighteen to
ninteen poun-ls per pair. This weight,
though, is very rare.
It seems to be the impression with
. many that ducks cannot bo kept except
with a pond or stream on the premises.
Hut this is a mistaken notion. True, a
running stream, or, when that is not to be
had, a pond of water, is great help, but it
is not a necessity. AVc have known fino
broods raised with a largo tub or box
sunk into the ground and filled daily with
fresh water. A good way to do this is to
excavate tho ground under tho tub to the
depth of eighteen inches or two feet, and
fill the hole up with stones ; have a hole
. i-.d plug rig'at over the excavation, and
'the water will run off easily and freely,
and not keep the ground around tho tub
"Hut they eat so much," is the reply
"vrhy, half a dzen ducks will cat a half
bushel of cirn aday. Now, reader, did
you ever comparo critically tho amount
consumed respectively by a duck and a
hen? If not, d.i so, and you may dis
cover les difference than you persuaded
yourse'.i there win.

How Will into Wheat Do?
A Boone obunty, Missouri, correspon
dent of Coleman's Rural World says a
question of much importance to tho farm
er is here put; How will late wheat do?
and this : llow late is it safe to sow fall
or winter wheat? and proceeds to answer
these inquiries as follows :
Seed timo and harvest come and go and
the timo must, as every man knows, be
employed, and not allowed to slip away,
otherwise there is danger to the crop. It
is cenerally believed that September is
the most proper time, and that the suc
cessful wheat grower wilt not delay much
beyond this month. Ho wishes to see the
ground well covered with the green blades
of wheat, and well matted over the sur-
Untoward circumstances, however,
sometimes thwart the best designs, (such
as continual rains,) hence, delay is un
avoidable. Farmers having large crops
to put down are therefore left to abandon
them or run the risk attending late
sowing. uctoDer succeeas Septem
ber, he hurries on, and still the continued
wet weather interferes, and now tho
question arises "When shall be stop ?"

ations drawn from experience.
it is desirable to have the seed ail in

teaches us that it is safest We do not
say, however, that tho husbandman should
instantlydiscontinue operations when the
first day, or tho tenth day of October ar
rives because it is a-fact that many good
crops have been produced from late cow
ing. 1 have in my mind Mr. J. A., who
sowed'ten acres on the 27th day of Octo
ber, 1S67. His crop was better than av
oi age. Mr. A, who, by the way, is a
good farmer, tel s me that he planted one-
hall an acre two years ago in November,
the wheat did not come upatall until the
succeeding spring and from all appear
ances lay dormant in the earth. It pro
duced twenty bushels.
Mr. K., who owns a " timber farm,"
(low land) planted fifteen acres in Novem
ber, 1S6G, and states that he had a better
than average crop Mr. G., of i lat ' eek,
states that he sowed fifteen acres of wheat
iu November, 1867, from which he ob
tained 300 bushels.
Other instances which 1 might allude
to, have fallen under my observation, of
late sown wheat, that produced good
excellent crops. I suppose that I offer
an opinion to which you will hardly agree:
That it is, taking all things into consid
eration, the best plan, if, by unavoidable
delays, the 20th of October has been
reached, and the seed isnot in the ground
the farmer's duty to go ahead and assume
the risk of failure, especially if the
ground is in good condition. 1 refer, us
must be understood, to central Missouri,
and I know not why tho same will not I

hat are the dangers ol very late sow
ing r ihe answer is ready the danger
is that it will " freeze out" in other
words, that the wheat plants rendered so
very tender by the failura to get well set
in the ground by having, in most in .
stances, only a single shoot, and but a
partial root are destroyed by the alter
nate freezings and thawings.
The theory is good. Yet, experience
has, I think, sufficiently demonstrated
that the sower may run the risk. I
would 'say let the rule be, " sow your
wheat in September, but if you aro pre
vented by circumstances beyond your
control, sow your wheat if it takes you
till the last day of October."
1 will mention that ilr. . 11.. ot len-
ton countj, sowed fifteen acres of wheat
(white), on the 27th of October, last year.

bushels good, plump wheat.

A correspondent of the Country Gen
tleman gives his views on the question
of fall plowing as follows .
Tha time for fall plowing has arrived,
and the ground seems to come up nicely;
but the late rains havo affected theground
so that it becomes us to ba careful how
we plow, particularly on wet soils. These,
in some cases, are turned up witn tne
water following the plow. This, we need
not say, is a severe injury. Tho frost
will ameliorate pomcwhat more in lata
plowing, as the sun is apt to harden the
early plowing but it is hurtful, killing
the soil, and that for years. Can wo
never persuade our tanners to Jet their
clay soil clone in wet weather? The
difficulty is, they think tho frost will
remedy it all That is almost the uni
vcrsal expression "tho frost will make
it all right it will not maKe it ngut.

plow in tho fall than in the spring; but

rains and the frost ; the rain after is not
hurtful, but benefits in connection with
the frost. It is therefore advisable to
plow all clay soils in the fall, especially
sod. Low lands that aro wet may thus
be treated if the ccason is a dry one and
the ground has lost its surplus water.
ThN is a very great advantage to such
land, as it will expose it to tho elements
and prepare it tho better for early sow
ing. Indeed early sowing is sometimes
the only remedy, as the alter rains win
preclude putting in such land in time.

As to low, dry, sandy soil, dry by
drainage, cither artificial or otherwise, it
is not so clear what shall be done. The
soil is not dry (Oct 12) either sandy or
"ravellv. It will not take long, however,
to fit it for tho plow wit fairh weather.
A rich vegetable mould with good un
der-drainago is no doubt the best soil for
plowing now. It will dry readily, and is

tho clay in it to be packed. Iftherois

Ths Nashville Usiox axd Dispatch and the
Nashville Gazettz by consolidating; the two
papers, propose to maKe the Usios axd Ameri
can thebtst and cheapest journal ever published
in Tennessee, and we ask the united support and
favor of tho patrons of both tho former papers,
in the new enterprise, pledging ourselves .that
in every particular our paper will compare fa
vorably with the best in the entiro country ; and
in saying this, we only repeat tho expressions of
many of our patrons, who are most capable of
udging in such matters.
In the Political Interests of
The Union and Amieicax will take tho Con
stitution and laws for its guide, adhering to the
teachings of the founders of our government. It
will gtfard with vigilance and firmness the
rights of all the people, urging upon all, modera
tion, forbearance and a steady adherence to
and order, thereby enabling the people to
develop the resources and advance all the mate
rial and other interests of our State and com
mon oountry. feeling that these are endan
gered by the revolutionary schemes of the Radi
cal politicians, who now hold the legislative
power of the government, we shall abite noth
ing of our past opposition to their measures.
Schools and Education,
Wo will take especial pains to ascertain the
true situation of all our school and educa
tional Interests, so as to keep our readers fully
posted in rega.d to thoso important matters.
Too much consideration cannot bo given to the
educational interests of our State.
Our Manufacturing and Do
We shall constantly admonish the Souther
people to be self-reliant, and shall do what we
may be able to induce the establishment o
manufastories in our midst for onr home pro-
diets. To this end we will pay special attention
tothecoaT and statistics of manufacturing,
and exert ourselves to encourage tha diversiS
cation of Southern industries and the develop
ment of Southern resource'.
Our Financial and Commer
Erory department of business has an imme
diate interest in the markets of the country, and
in its financial fluctuations and condition. The
man who falls to keep himself properly ad
vised as to the rise and fall of the markets, as
controlled by the laws of demand and supply
aad the relative condition ol tho currency, is
exposed to constant loss, and mast necessarily
fall behind his more intelligent and enterprising
neighbors. In order to makeur paper valuable
as well as interesting, we shall make this a
sfzcial 7ZATUEK. Our Daily Market Reports,
domestic and foreign, by telegraph, and our
City Reports, gotten up at heavy expense, shell
challenge the commendation of our best busi
nessmen; while ourcurrent Financial Reports
from all the leading money centers of the coun
try shall be fuller than have ever been pub
liahed by any other journal in Tennessee.
Upon the Subject of Agri
And kindred topics, we shall also give an ex
tensive variety of valuable and interesting mat
ter the best adapted to the farming classes of
our State, which will, in a great measure, cup
ply tee place cf a family agricultural paper.
In Every Thing.
News, Commerce, Finance, Manufactures, Ag
riculture and miscellaneous topics, together with
political matters, shall be the special object of
attention in the columns of the Umos and
Aueeican, eo as ta make it ahead of all others
