From the Xsine Farmer.
tonus Soil for Potatoes.
ll has been remarked by moralist! that
blessingRbrichten as they take their flight."
Tbc good old-fashioned potato used to be
raised so easily, and were so abundant that
we never realized their worth until the po
tato tot crctw, and then the blessings be.
gan to brghti-n, after they had taken their
flight beyond our reach. S.ime remarks
in regard to the culture of them we think
would not be amiss, eve w if not quite in
season to apply tSem in the act of planting.
V?p' have always noticed that the best
crops of potatoes are raised in what may
be catbd porous soil. For instance, new
grounds that have been burnt over.and are
lull of half burnt Waves and sticks, and
ashes and coal andju-reenswards that have
been turned over by the plow and are not
From these facts we have supposed that
alihaagh the vine of the pota'.nto requires
ome source to obtain potash which enters
rnto its substance largely, yet it requires a
chtnja where the atmosphere can have ac
cess to i'.s tubers, an J that while it is nec
essary that they should r.ot be exposed tn
the scorching sun or drowning waier, yet
air is a very important clement iu its f uc
cessful cu'tivaticn, and this it ob'ains in
such situations as we have d. scribed above
In looking over eeme of the w riters who
hve ventured to suggest anything on this
eubiect. we find one quoted in the New
York Farmer and Mechanic, who seems
to think that the atmosphere rfTcirds the
principal part of the nourishment to this
crop. It is tnat we do not yet, after
ail iFie rr searches in the chemical action of
the element, hi how they are always
assimilated, nor what jit-culiar changes and
affinities are tfilcu d during the growth of
plants. It is not impossible that decompo
sitions and re-compositions which are si
lently going on in the ti e plant, may be
-uch as to form substances from the ingre
dier.ts of the atmosphere1 and the aeriform
substances ao J vapors wi h which it is filled,
that we supposed must have come Irom the
soil alone. That the potato, for instance,
can derive in some mys'eriou or hitherto
unknown pnces, potash, and lime, and
soda, and the other mineral matters it con
tiflr from the atmosphere, and hence the
reason why it thrives best in such porous
soil as we have mentioned.
Anion;; the many plans devised to culti
vate tbe potato, if you have not piece of
burnt ground or turf, the breaking up of
sward-lend and manuring wi'h coarse
trawy manure, if you ore sure of suffici
ent moisture, is- the best.
The writer to whom we alluded above,
says that the following is the most success
ful plan that he has found iu the cultivation
o! this vegetable, en1 that he speaks from
Select a piece of hard trama'ed ground,
the harder the better. A lot on which
atock of any Wind but particularly hogs
f.ava bien kfpt aod fed, will be found to be
the best. Break it up wctf, thoroughly and
deeply, one way, no matter how cloddy ;
nud do cot harrow it any, but let the clods
remain unbroktn. The ground being thus
btoktn one way. lay it off into rows the
other wav. or across the plowing, two and
a hall or thrre feet apart. Open these with
a plow, rurniirg it back in the same furrow,
to as to open the ttench as widely and as
deeply as possible ; cut ail the large seed
potatoes so as to have a sufficiency of eyes
on each piece. Then drop them in about
six inches apart. Now fVil the trench with
straw or chaT, or if neitl.tr of these can
be obtained, with leaves from the woods
or trash of some sort. This is very impor
tant to a successful coititatiri of the pta
to. not as is Generally supposed, becanse it
gives thrpo-ato room to grow and expand
in, (though tins is of some impor!an; e,(but
because, as we have shown, it furnishes it
i:h a kind ol bed or nuasery to grow in.
Wc do cot d'.iiy thai rt rmy rt-ctivc some
t lUriincnt from the decom;osing s'raw.but
th n it must be tmirely d'UHrriit from that

Corn and Potatoes together.
The idea advanced by some, that pota
toes pl.inted in rows alternating with corn,
would invent the potato rot, induced many
last year to try the experiment. As thr
potato disease did not prevail ao extensive
ly dur'tiJ the I j si season as usual, the re
sults of the experiment in this respect are
not vi Vfiiiit-Iy ascertained as we could
wish. It h. a!so been believed, by som,
that this is a better mode of raising these
two crops than bv planting them scp-
r':'e'y. We have been reminded ol this
i'n by re.fi. n,j the alres d'-liverrJ by
Mr. ICcwhail before the Esx County
Aur-ciiiitiritl l-oncy, at their last Cattle
Snow. W o An J that be advances the
nrs id-a, asd sting forward some facts
corroborating it. Premium had soma
year ago been offered by that Society Tor
mixed crop of corn, beans, potatoes, &e.
Mr. Newhall says But one premium
had been claimed, which wes for a crop of
corn and potatoes' planted in alternate
rows ; the experiment made at the time,
by measurement of land and produce,
thowed that the mixed crop yielded tome
nineteen per cent, more than that which
was planted separately
The corn and
potatoes planted in this way were mutual
helps to each other ; the potatoes shading
the roots of the corn and protecting it from
the effects of drought, and the corn in the
months of July and August screening the
potatoes from the rays of the sun. The
crops planted in this way, adding the
value of potatoes in corn, yielding from
eighty to one hundred bushels per acre.-
The Farmers' Creed.
We believe in small (arms and thorough
We believe in large crops, which leave
the land better than they found it.
We believe in going to the bottom of
things, and therefore in deep ploughing.
We believe that the best fertilizer of the
soil is (he spirit of industry, enterprise.and
intelligence ; without this, lime, marl, plas
ter, bones, and creen manures will be of
little use. N. Independent.

ting physician to the Hospital for Consumpiion,
Ac, says ; I have prescribed the Oil in above
four hundred eases of tuberculous disease of the
Lungs, in different klages,wbich have been under
my care the last two years and a halt. In the
large number of cases. 206 out ot 334. its use was
followed by marked, unequivocal improvement,
varying in degree in different cases, from a tem
porary retardation of the progress of the disease
snd a mitigation of distressing symptoms, up to
a more or less complete restoration to apparent
The effect of tbe Cod Liver Oil in most of
these cases was very remarkable. Even in a few
davs the couch wss mitigated, the ex pee oration
diminished in uuantiiy and opacity, tbe night
sweats ceased, the pulse became dower, and of
better volume, and the appetite. Bean and slienglQ
were gradually improved.
" In conclusion 1 repeat that the pure fresh Oil
from tbe Liver of the Cod is more beneficial in
the treatment of Pulmonary Consumpiion than
any agent, medicinel, dietetic or regimenal, that
has yet been employed.
As we have made arrangemriits to pro
cure the Cod Liver Oil lresh from head
qunriers, it can now be had chemically
pure, by the single bottle or in boxes of
one dozen each.
Its wonderful efficacy has induced num
erous spurious imitatiovs. As its success
depends entirely on its purity, too much
care can not be used in procuring it of.ni;

FOR the difficult respiration and tlebilitv
amending diseases of the Lungs, or
Throat and Breast, Thomson's Compound
Syrup of Tar and Hood Naptha has
been found an invaluable remedy.' Besides
ita power as an Expectorant to relieve the
lungs from Ihe accumulated matter which
results from the relaxed state of the system
in hot weather, it also acts as a healing
balm to the ulcerated part and a atreagth
ener to the system. .
So salutary ia the action of the Syrup
in this respect, that many of our most
respectable Physicians employ it io their
practice, and we have daily evidence of
cures enectM - in pulmonary- disease
where skill haa utterly failed.
