Having been a tobacco raiser for
quite a number of years, and having
taken premiums at some of the larg
est tobaeeo fairs heldin this country
I took a premium, pa. the best five
hogsheads of shipping leaf at the
great tobacco fair held at Ciarksville,
Tenn., last June I propose giving
voua few items on tobacco culture
and its general management, this be
mg tue season lor preparing and sow
ing the seed. i
This section is well adapted to the
growth jof heavy shipping - leaf,
known As the Ciarksville tobacco,
and therefore my remarks -will have
Reference to that description of leaf.
Firsts select a rich epotl in the
woods where the leaves are, thick on
t he ground and there Is less of "grass
teed, and the soil soft and mellow;
rake off all the leaves airtJ debris.
Old fence rails or dry wood is the
best material used for burning. Put
down some poles or rails, from six to
eight feet apart ; then pile the wood
or rails across them, about three rails
deep; set tire to tbem, as soon as
the ashes become cool, chop up the
ground with a hoe, some two or three
inches deep; rake, and pick all the
roots out, thoroughly pulverizing the
soil ; put one dessert spoonful ot seed
to every hundred square yards con
tained in the bed; mix the seed in a
pan of ashes, sow it, then trample in
or run a roller over the bed ; cover
with brush lightly, so as to keep the
bed moist, letting it remain till the
slants grow t6 thesize of a half dol
lar. To prepare the ground for planting:
break the land deep in the fall, which
is much better than to rebreak in
March. Commence preparing it for
setting as soon as yourplants become
the size of a dollar, putting the soil
in good condition by plowing and
harrowing; lay it oil three and a
half feet apart ; make a small flat hill
in the cross with a hoe. Cultivate
altogether with the plow, .unless it is
permitted to become grassy, then the
hoe has to be used. Continue to plow
as long as you can without breaking
the leaves of the plants. As soon as
the plants are large enough, com
mence topping some farmers lose a
great deal in topping too high ; they
will generally leave from twelve to
fifteen leaves, resulting in the to
bacco being very light and trashy.
From eight to ten leaves is as high
as a plant should le topped to make
heavy tobacco. Never let the suck
f"ers get longer than three or four in
,oh; If permitted to grow longer,
the plant la not good, being light
and chaffy. Any one can- tell
when a plant is ripe, if they ever saw
a ripe pear : when the plant is ripe,
the yellow spots show very thick in
Housing and curing is the most im
portant of all. First, have a good,
tight house, with tiers four feet apart,
- and sticks; ' put from eight to ten
-.- plants on a stick, eight to ten inches
apart on the tiers t let them remniu
until they get yellow it generally
takes from three to four days in warm
weather, longer when cold ; then
start small fires, keeping them so for
- about twenty-four hours, and then
, increase them the quicker it is cured
the better. Continue fires till ' the
leaves and stems are cured. If, af
terwards, there Is a long damp spell
of weather and your tobacco gets
, very high, you must restart the light
fires to dry it out, being very careful
with your fires to avoid burniug, as
it dries very quickly. Let it remain
hanging until it is entirely cured,
stalk and all, and when your tobacco
gets soft, in November, take it down
and bulk it not getting on it with
your knees, as there is danger of its
sticking together so that it-will, be
i difficult to classify It. In taking it
'down at that season of theyear, it re
gains its color and weight.
s Make up these classes, in stripping
v the best in one class, the secoud or
short in another, and the lugs in an
other. Bulk down, as you strip, each
class by it9elf, straightening It well by
hard pressure before bulking. This
is very important, as it is the last
handling; if straightened nicely
when bulked, it will come out as
straight as a candle and you will
have no trouble in pressing. To be in
good pressing order, the stem should
break at least one third from the lar
ger end. Press from sixteen to eigh
teen hundred pounds in a hogshead,
Ihope these desultory remarks may
be of service to other tobacco grow,

W B. Tegetmier, a well-known
writer on Fowls, writes to the Lon
don Field " -
"The fatal disease caused by the
presence of the gape worm appears
unusually prevalent. I have had in
my runs, where it has attacked some
Sebright bantams ; but I have found
no difficulty in curing it by the means
of carbolic acid, which I first recom
mended for this purpose iu the Field
of last year, bo potent are the fumes
of this powerful remedy, and so des
tructive are they toparasiticlife, that
their inhalation fur even a few mo
ments seems perfectly 'etlectual in
destroying the life of the worm. It
is not even necessary to employ a
special apparatus ; a few : drop of
carbolic acid may be placed in a
spoon ami held over the flame of a
candle until the vapor is seen to rise,
when the head of the young chicken
may lie placed in the vapor, which
the auimal is forced to inhale. Care
must be taken not to carry on the
lrooess until the fowl as well as
worms are killed. I find after expos
ure to the fumes for a few seconds,
the bird may be regarded as cured,
ami may be seen running about quite
well the following day : if not, the
treatment should be repeated. The
medicinal carbolic acid is preferable
to the tarry liquid used for disinfect
ing sewers and drains."
We copy the following interesting
items from the American Agricul
Young pigs, like all young, grow
ing auimaN, should have abundance
f fond, and the best care and treat
ment. Sheep-killing dogs are apt to be
around at this season. Put bells on
two or three sheep in each flock, and
keep a gun loaded ready for the dogs.
Manure in the nursery and orchard
is needed, in order to secure the best
results, and the fall is a good time to
haul and spread it upon the laud.
Spring pigs, if not in nnusually
good condition can probably be win
tered with profit. Pork can hardly
fail to be much higher next year than
Patnto tops are well worth draw
ing to the yard to absorb the liquid
inauure. Allowing them to remain
scattered over the field until spring,
is a very slovenly practice.
On low, moist laud, the fall is a
good time to cut ditches and cleau
out and deepen old ones. Under
draining on uplands is usually best
done in the spring, or late in the fall
or early in winter, when the ground
is saturated with water.
Pieces of boards, broken rails, bar
rel staves,' should lie gathered up be
fore they becomesaturated with rains.
A few hours' labor in strengthening
up would add much to the a insur
ance of many a farm. Nothing pays
better than neatness, system and
order. , .
Do not sell the best ewes or lambs.
Sheep are scare, and butchers are

Combinations Against Farmers.
n a paper on combinations for con-
k re1 y.
is kept wailing by it, like a beggar
at the back door, while commerce,
manufactures, and all the royal inter
ests of the capitalists and speculators
are admitted in front, and receive
obsequious attention. The produ
cing classes among whom the far
mers are foremost pay, directly and
indirecjly,all the taxes and receive
the least consideration. Still for this
the farmers are themselves largely
to blame. They have not pushed
their claims, but have plodded on
Datientlv at home, and accented
whatever was ottered them. They
have not seen theouga all the tricks
of the non-prod u ing classes, and
now -they ara wondering if -farming
pay?" , J does pay, but not in pro
portion tot. other callings; mady of
toJiicb-are- paid too 'wejland at the
farmer's expense. Farming is rob
bed by high rates in interest, extor
tionate rates of freight, and manu
factures, by commissions and through
tlie tricks of agents and impostors.
While it gives employment to fully
one-half our entire industrial popu
lation, it fixes neither the prices of
what it sell Pr buys. Tradesmen,
mechanics, aud speculators fix these
prices. Is it any wonder that the
farmer does not get the best of the
bargain under such a system ? Sup
ply and demand regulate prices of
farm products to some extent, but
the prices of farm tools, manufac
tures, mining and the like are reg
ulated by combinations, directly and
indirectly. " '.. $
Agriculture and Manufactures.
An able writer in favor of uniting
manufacturing industry witn tnat
of agriculture, says: "A merely ag
ricultural people can never have any
thing that deserves the name of ag
riculture. Toey can rob the soil ot
its fertility but they cannot cultivate
it. Tuey nave nonome marnec, ana
can produce nothing but tue courses
and crudest products; and sending
all their produce abroad, they cannot
refresh the energy of their lauds by
returning, to iheua a fair portion of
their products after they have served
their Human use. So their accounts
runs out at last in a bank in which
they make no deposits." Tbe above
statement expresses a general truth;
yet nothing can well oe easier than
to set aside all the conditions on
which the truth rests. Let us sup
pose a man has a good foreign de
mand at a high price for cotton and
tobacco. He is under no necessity of
robbing his soil; for a small part of
tbe money received for his crop will
purchase tbe alkalies and acids re
moved by washing rains falling on
tilled ground, and in the staples sent
to market. Full restitution may not
be practiced, but is by no means im
practicable. A cottou planter in
Tennessee may impoverish his plant
ation by raising cotton to be manu
factured in hi9 own county as well as
in New England or Old England.
The defect is not iu the place of man
ufacture, whether cotton or tobaccou
but in a want of knowledge of the
true principles of tillage and hus
bandry. It is not more necessary
that a tanner should renew his sup
ply of raw hides and tan bark to keep
up his stock,- from year to year, thau
that a farmer should purchase the
raw material cousumed in making
cotton, grain and tobacco sold off tike
farm. It is idle to talk about tb e
coarsest and rudest products. Coa'.-ge
or tine, restitution in some way is in
dispensable. Manufactures fa vov res
titution, and ought to be encou raged;
but they are not-the sine que. non of
successful agriculture. An increase
of knowledge will do more for farm
ing than any home marVcet. Such
a market does not uecef warily give
existence to cheap and perfect ma
nure; nor does it tell what kind of
plant food is most needed to keep up
a high degree of fruitful ness. Manu
facturing industry net teach agricul
ture as a science ; nor does the theory
or protection and J-i igh tariffs devel
op any new agricultural truth."

A Torching Incident
A confederate soldier furnishes the
editor of the Howling Green Demo
crat with the following extract from
his diary, relating a very touching
incident of the recent war :
"After the last struggle before Rcbi
motut, thousands of bodies lay for
many days without burial. Among
the number' was found one that was
scarcely anything more than a skele
ton. Nearly all the flesh was decay
ed, but underneath that skeleton
hand, lay a copy of the Holy Bible,
open, while the bony fingers rested
on those precious words of the fJ
Psalm and 4th veise: "Yea though
I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil
for thou art with me; thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me."
.TrriGE Davis has rendered his de
cision granting the motion for a Etay
of proceedings in the iStokcs case.
The case will now go to the full
bench for hearing. This will probably
involve a delay of a couple of months.
A ptspatch from Logan, Utah,
states that Charley Benson shot and
killed David Crockett, Jr., of that
place on ihe evening of the 14th inst.,
without provocation. Benson is still
Charles Lamb said he didn't believe

A Few rnrarnished Facts About
Sewing Machines. .
Why the New Wheeler 4 Wilson Is the
best the world has ever produced 1
It is the only machine that makes the
lockstitch with a rotating houk, thus
avoiding the annoyance of a shuttle and
threading and breaking thesame.
It bus much less machinery tbananyoth
er, and is constructed on the most scientific
p-lnciples. Each joint is adjustable by
tempering screws; hence its durability.
it is the most silentand rapid sewing ma
chine and also the lightest running in tbe
world, and unlike other machines, which
make the more noise tne longer they run.
It has no oil above it cloth surface; thus
theim possibility of getting the work oiled.
It has the French prized glass faot im
provement, and new style combination
hemraer, performing with ease and rapid
ity broad aud narrow hemming, felling
and binding. The glass feet enable the open-tor
to see every Ktitch and to run as
close to the edge as desired, all rf which
are attached by a slide, thus avoiding the

Every year increases the popu
larity of this valuable Hair Prep
aration, which . ia due to merit
alone. We can assure our old
patrons that it is kept fully up to
its high standard ; and it is the on
ly reliable and perfected prepara
tion for restoring Gbat ob Faded
Hair to its youthful color, making
it soft, lustrous, and silken. The
scalp, by its use, becomes white and
clean. It removes all eruptions and
dandruff and, by its tonic proper
ties, prevents the hair from falling
out, as it stimulates and nourishes
the hair-glands. By its use, the
hair ctows thicker and stronger.
In baldness, it restores the capillary
glands to their normal vigor, and
will create a new growth, except in
extreme old age. It is the most
economical IIaib-Dressino ever
used, as it requires fewer applica
tions, and gives the hair a splendid,
lossy appearance. A. A. Hayes,
iLD, State Assayer of Massachu
setts, says, u The constituents are
pure, and carefully selected for ex
cellent quality; and I consider it
the Best Pkepabation for its
intended purposes." ;
