' From ihc Valley Farmer for February. '
FARM WORK FOR FEBRUARY.
Our good friends must not suppose (hat
in any hints whiu'i we throw out, we for
get that the farmer should have other me
thods of spending his time, especially in
winter, besides continual (oil labor and
unreniitti:;-; drudgery. No he has ma
ny other privilege and enjoyment ', and
while the Yunke philmitlirof ints some
times thatik God that their soil is so stub
born, and their climate so ungcni-.il that
the farmer is compelled to incessant toil to
keep soul and boJy together, we rejoice
that with us a man oi ordinary prudence
and sagacity may command for himself and
family every comfort, and still have abun
dant leisure to cultivate the social virtues,
improve his mind, and enrich it with val
uable knowledge. But herein consists
the secret good management, and a sys
tematic arrangement of all your affairs.
Never put ofT till to-morrow what can be
done to-day. Not only have a place but a
rime for every thing, and let this time be
at (lie very lirst opportunity, liy always
keepir.g ahead of your work, you can se
cure many seasons of leisure which you
cannot otherwise obtain,
During this month your stock need more
caretul attention than during any other ol
the twelve. If your working caltlu and
horses now gel thin, and weak, they will
be tin tit for the spring work, which must
Bonn be commenced. And llie animals
with young wee that they arc provided
with good food and plenty of it ; with ttarm
bedding, and not worried or teased by vi
vinus animals yarded with thcm The
mod lor such animals should be nutricious
rather than hearty, and as the period fi r
parturition approaches, they should be
sheltered with additional care. For three
or four uculis before they hrinir forth,
ilhpir looil should be ot such a naturo as
will impart strength to them and their rlf-
sprii'g, and ut the same lime promote the
secretion of milk. Brewers' grains or
' wheat bran from the mills, where (hey
can be obtained, arc among the bet and
' cheapest articles that can be used. They
' limy be fed to cows at the rate of a peck
fur each cow per day, before calving, and
a hal.'' biiihel per day afterwards. Sheep
may be !ed from one to three quarts per
day, When these articles cannot be hud,
a little corn or oats lor sheep, uml fur cows
corn meal, at the rstesol' from two to lour
quarts each per day, will be beneficial.
A few crrots will greatly favor the se
cretion of milk, both in cows ond sheep,
and may bo given with advantage in addi
tion to tho corn or meal. , We cannot o
mit this opportunity to say one word more
here on a subject upon v hidi we express
ed ourselves pretty freely last month we
mean the protection and shelter of stock.
A meicif.il man is merciful to his beast ;
and no him ane man wilMeave his stock
exposed lo all the storms und colds of our
variable climate, if he can by any means
prevent it; and there are but lew men
who cannot provide something to protect
their poor faithful dumb beasts. A man
had better sell one hi. If of his stoc k and
' provide shelter for the rest, than to keep
hi! he has and leave them exposed lo the
winds Htid storms of heaven.
Make your preparations during this
month for the cultivation of a Gakoen.
How much comfort ond luxury do ni.,ny
farmers deprive themselves and families
of, by neglecting that all-important matter
the kitchen garden! Many will throw
(he labor and care of it wholly upon the
1 female members of the family, hardly w il
ling, apparently to take time to plow the
ground 1 and. many, very m.,ny, have wc
seen that lived year after year, with none
at nil not even a 'truck patch.'.: In the

If you have not finished gelting'up your
year's Supply of wood,, take our advice,
tvnd Jo M vviilioi.t'dchiy. This is a matter
in which every' Head of a family should
feel a dero and uU'Jrbing interest. We
' wish that every fa rte'sr eould'couslfler hiui
sell' morally bound to have a pile in his
yard this month, which will be sufficient
to last him during the entire year) there
fore, let all push ahead and accomplish the
desirable task. '
So soon as you have secured your sup
ply of lire-wood, set your hands to eeUintr
out as many posts and rails as will serve
to maku all the new fences you deML'ii to
put. up," and to fepftir the old ones. The
timber for these purposes being felled and
cut into lengths, every opportunity should
be employed (o fusluon therri into shape,
so that your posts and tails may be ready
in early spring to be put up.
Give one more look tu the tools which
may be needed when you commence w"brk
for the season. See that every thing is in
perfect order ; and remember that it is
miserable policy to use poor tools. If
there is any thing more foolish than the
custom of some farmers using ill-shapen,
badly constructed and dull tools, unless it
be another custom of depending upon one's
neighbor, for the implement needed al
most daily upon the farm, we do not know
what it is. Resolve, then, to have the
best tools, and keep them in complete or
der. Ii an axe or chisel or saw gets dull,
have it sharpened immediately, and not
wait until you want to use it again, for
two to one you will then be in a great
hurry.
J7r"We h'rfo the spirit, and adopt the
sentiments, of the Fulton Telegraph, in an
article we copy concerning Dram-shops
without license. While Public Opinion
is effectually getting rid of them, in our
vilhiges how shameful, that legislation
should come in to increase the evil uu
der tho insulted name, forsooth, of Chari-

DRAMSHOPS WITHOUT LICENSE
Several bills, for the purpose of ena
bling persons to keep dramshops without
license, have been presented during the
present ses.io;i ot our Legislature ; but
we have been pleased to see that they
have L'ei',erallv mil with an unnelcome
reception! both in the House and Senate.
11 is bad enough that such things should
exist under the sufferance of general law,
by paying a high price lor the privilege ol
making paupers, criminals and madmen
but thai ihey should be Inhered by spe
cial legislation, in behalf of needy indi
viduals, is, in our humble opinion, a strange
perversion of charity and humanity. It
is like giving a scorpion to one who asks
lor sustenance.
Wo hold that no combination of circum
stances can occur which could make it
advisable or proper, upon any considera
tion, to grant such special and injurious
privileges. Better would it be, in all cu
sea where meritorious individuals are in
want, to make them the direct objects of
charity, than to encourage them lo labor
in disseminating the seeds of penury, dis
ease and vice, in return for public bounty
We have been led lo these remarks by
the report if Ihe passage of a bill for the
relief of Absalom, Hughes, ot this coun
ly which il appears, has been carried
through the nuuse und senate solely by
the inlluer.ee of our representatives. We
would fain hope that there is some mis
take in the mailer, so far as Mr. Heed, ol
the Senate, is concerned. He is a t on of
Temperance, and we cannot see how he
ci ii reconcile his obligations to that Order,

all lis principles to opposite to all it
ends. But, apart from this, it in a sn ;

Of Mr. Hughes, we are entirely ignorant
but from the interest manuested in his
case by our representatives, we are con
vinced (hat he is a very worthy man.'
Our objection is, to special legislation in
behalf of a cause which has produced
more misery in the world than all others
combined, and for the overthrow of which
patriots, philanthropists and moralists are
uniting their most powerful efforts Fat
