James II. Gill says, in the Ohio Cultiva
ror : I have never been troubled with
this worm much. My plan for defeating
them is, to stir the ground as soon as the j
rora is up and keep at it, Irom day to day,
until it is too large for these destructives.
I generally, alter getting the coin say four
inches high, try to have it ploughed every
teo days, until it begins to tassel if the
soil is very rich, say about eight days. I
never stop plowing for drought, and never
plow when tret. My method of planting
is, to have two of the best and most r liable
hands that 1 can get, to drop f jr one plow,
and three next best to cover after them. I
generally drop four grains on an average
to the lull if (he ground i9 moist cover
about three inches ; if dry, about four inch
es. My object in having so many hands
follow one plow is, that they can take their
lime, and do their work just as I tell them.
I never have any occasion to re-plant.
1 scarcely ever hill my corn more than
is sufficient to smother the weeds. You
have noticed.no doubt, that there is a thort
joint near the ground, almost as hard as
wood. My opinion is, that nature designed
this for the special purpose of supporting
the stalk and ear above it ; and Irom oo-
serfanons that I have made, I think ta

A worthy clergyman informed us recent
ly, that he purchased seven acres ol mis
erable, sandy land in the neighborhood of
Saratoga, a few years since, which, by ma
nuring and judicious cultivation, he brougfit
up to such condition, that from three acres
and lull a only, he produced grren fodder
throughout the tseason, for three cows, one
bull, one horse, and seven sheep ; and
cut ail the hay consumed by them in
the winter. The hay, however, was pierced
out by the use of grain, roots, and straw,
taken from the remaining half of the seven
acres. When the land sold, he received
over $100 an acre, for what a few years
previously, was bough.t for as many shil
lings. We have kept a good lookout for suc
cessful farming, for the last fow year?, and
have invariably Ibund, that intelligence and
a careful investigation of the experiments
and best practices of others, furnished the
