/1ft- We are anxiously awaiting an
other communication from "Edisto" on
the subject mentioned in his last.
. General Green is making an at
tack in front, rear, and on both 'flanks,
and the complaint among farmers, of in
ability to cope with him, isjeneraf.
Mr. Editor :
In your issue of the 29th ult., I en
deavored to show Gaf o?r energetic
farmers were making rapid progress in
the field department of husbandry, and
promised to give you some of my crude
notions on the subject of cattle improve
ment. That thore is room for improve-"
ment no one will deny, and every enter
prising farmer who has any pride in his
farm and its surroundings, must be de-j
sirous of doing something in that direc
tioH',-if* he could see how it could be done j
at a? reasonable cost 'Tis true that we
have an- abundance of cattle, such as
titey atffe,-tint aft least fifty or., sixty per
cent of them" ar? very inferior,, itnprofita- J
tile for mijky butter" or beef, and a dis
grace to good farmings?costing as much
to keep as ttie Very best kind.
It is the experience and practice of |
many of the best farmers and dairyman
of New York and Pennsylvania' that]
milkers raised from native-cattle, sired
by pure jbreD bulls, make the best and
most profitable stock for all farming pur
poses. Now if tbis is so (and there is no
reason to doubt it,) then wo have abund
ant material to improve on.
Scattered all over our County we have
native grades of the Devon, Ayeshire,
Jersey, Durham and Brahmin, besides
many of our common breeds, having
good milking and beef qualities.
yyewant, then, pure hlooded bulls.
Havo we them in our country ? and if so,
how are wo to know it, and how are we
to' utilize them ? I would suggest to
those who have them, or grade cows or
heifers, or good common breeds, to pre
pare the best they have. This muBt be
done by extra feeding, haltering and
handling them, so as to make them do
cile and manageable. Thus prepared,
let them bo exhibited at our County Fair
to be held in October next, when every
convenience will Be aforded for their
shelter and protection. We will then
see what we have, and what we really
want, and perhaps we can select and
purchase such as we may need for breed
ing purposes ; and, in addition, will have
an exhibition of cattle that will surprise
us and do credit to the County, and be
tho means of stimulating our farmers to
go ahead and strive'to excel.
I would further suggest that the Or
angeburg Agricultural and Mechanical
Association, as soon as they can make
the necessary arrangements on their Fair
Ground, purchase a No. 1, pure blooded
Bull', of the kind that best suits our cli
mate and section of country, to bo kept
on their grounds, and a reasonable charge
made for all animals put to him. It
would pay them, benefit the farming in
terest, and would be carrying out ono of
their avowed objects?tho keeping of
pure blooded stock animals on tho farm.
Never put a good cow to an impure
bull, but bo sure, always, to have tho
male of the purest w.ooi).

Dear Tdhes :-?4> Farmer writing
in tho Orangeburg Times wishes to mako
long forage other than stripping fodder,
and n ska for in form a Lion in sowing, ?cut
ting and curing corn. Not king I have
tried will turn out long forage in quanti
ties to equal com. I first break- up my
land, then lay it oft' with a deep furrow,
four feet; between the rows?manure in
that fnrrow well, and drill in tho corn at
the rate of one and a half bushels per
acre?work it with the sweepl When in
tassel, cut and cure it?-you can cut it
with hoes or a bramble knife. Put two
hands to cutting, and two to follow, gath
ering up the stalks. 80 soon as the hands
have each an arm full, they come togeth
er, when by thumping the butt ends of
the stalks on tho ground, and leaving the
flops together and t icing it at tho top, the
stalks will left standing over the field in
large shocks. Three, hands might tie
the stalks they have gathered up to
gether. Tho bottom being spread out a
little and the tops brought together and
well tied, there is no danger of thoir
falling down. It may be leit in that
way two or three or four weeks in the
field, until thoroughly cured all through,
without danger of spoiling from the
weather. When hauled in, you will see
the prettiest cured fodder you ever be
held. It will bo best to cut it up to
feed. If the stalks are large the horses
will break tho sticks or puH tho racks
down in getting it out.
There is so much sugar in the stalk's
and blades, cured so finely, (for neither
dew nor rain can get to them) that when
put before a horse he will have them,
and the rack must be very strong-to re
sist the continued jerking of a bundle,
prosed together as they are in the mouth
of tho animal. I have made a great
deal of hay but, mostly on bottom land.
Up land must be well manured and the
season tolerably wot, to make good grass.
You must not allow hay to get wet; even
ono nights dew materially injures it.
The beat manner I have found of curing
-is to pile it in large shocks, as high as a
hand can throw it on with a fork; let it
remain a day and;, then-open it to the
sun and wind. Whilst in the pile it gets
heated and goes through a sweatafter
that it is cured as soon as it dries off.
The time to cut' grass is when U is in
bloom. A hand can cut and cure three
thousand pounds of hay in a day, and if
he pulls and takes in three hundred
pounds of foDder ho does a very good

Pickling Cucumbers &c, in Salt.
I observe in your May number an in
quiry in regard to saving cucumbers in
"brirte or salt," which I judge from tho
reading, is intended only to bo answered
by the ladies. Now, Mr. Editor, I am
not one of that sei, but I- know a plan
so very simple nnd good' 1 take the lib
erty of making an answer.
The plan' is this : Take any woodeu,
stone, or glass vessel that will hold water,
have your vessel well cleaned and gather
cucumbers of any size you choose, (ex
cept yellow,) rinse in cold water and
pack in your vessel, first putting a layer
of Bait about an inch thick, then a iayer
of cucumbers, and so on until your ves
sel is full, finishing with a layer of Bait
sufficient to hide tho cucumbers; put on
a small weight to keep them under the
brine, which will naturally form?no
covering is particularly necessary. Thus
packed, they will keep lougcr than you
would likely hayo them. I have seen
theiu perfectly good two years after pack
ing. When they are to be taken out to
picklo in vinegar, they will require soak
ing in fresh water about two or three
days, changing waters about twice each
day, in order to get out tho excess of salt
and restoring to original shape. Almcst
everything tnat is ever used for pickle,
can bo kept by following the above di
rections. To namo a few I would say
peaches just beginning to turn, young
melons of all classes, green tomatoes, ar
tichoke, pepper (green) young radish
nods, snap beans, ?c., &c, and am not
buro that tho beans would not do for tho
cook-pot, as well as for tho pickle jar.
While on the picklo.question, I will
tell how to mako n nico'turnip picklo :?
Boil your turnips until they can bo
pierced with a fork, take out and cut in
pieces to suit your own notion, after
ward* treat aa you would anything else
intended for pickle.
