to the subject ; ami (band, by motnal ex

the Spring for corn. I have since found
that other experienced farmers take ' the
same course.

This involves auf inquiry interesting
to fanners. Why ia it ? I acknowledge
that, in all matters of practice, we should
give heed to the teachiug of facts, even if
W are nnaeinainted with the reason of
nch facts. Sometimen, however, prac-1
tir&l conctobions to be drawn from facts :
are mate; ially altered by knowledge of j
the laws by which tbose facts exit... I
think it would be so in this case. Does
the ground actually deteriorate lying, af
Ur it is ploughed, over winter, exposed
to the cold, tie wind, and the wet ? Or
ia there a process of fermentation which
occurs soon after turning it over, which
is favorable to vegetation, and which is
lost by being ploughed so long before
plsnting ? .Or is it to be ascribed to some
other cause ? - .There must be some : nat
ural cause for it, if it is fact -I should
like to bare some light on this subject.
It wonld involve tlie question of the best
time for ploughing for Winter wheat
whether Jane, or as soon as possible be
fore sowing. If immediate fermentation
takes place and is favorable to tbe growth
of the crop, it would follow that in all
cases the seeding should follow the plough
ing as nearly as possible, to. insure the
best result. I am inclined to this opin
ion ; bat not being a practical farmer I
would loaru from thost; that are.

Bairns uk Deep Ploughing. A ecu-1
tlmnan some days since, while convening I
with ns npon the subject of agriculture.
related the following instance ia'favar of
deep ploughing. He said that his father. 1
some 25 years ago, bought a farm which j
had been nearly worn ont : that tbe sur-
face soil was almot a bel of floating aand
with a clay subsoil ; t ht after cnltivatin?
- 1
it ia the nsual w ay, of bhallow plonghing,
for two or three years, he becanio vexed
at the smalluess of proituct, aud deter
mined to try the virtue of deep plough
ing : that to effect this, he procured two
double horse plough, ami made one
plough follow the track of the other, so
that he penetrated the earth fully 12 inch-
e,' and threw up half that number of
inches in depth, of the subsoil upon the
top of the aand thrown down by the op
eration of the plough. This experiment
was first tried upon a field of 20 acres,
late in the Fall, intended for corn the en
suing Spring. The ground after being
- thus ploughed was harrowed arid suffered
to remain until sufficiently frozen to bear
teams, when 50 bushels of lime to the
acre was spread thereon. In the Spring,
the usual quantity of barn yard manure
was carted out. spread and ploughed in
to the depth of four inches ; after which
the ground was hwowed, and an addi
tional quantity of lime, at the rate of 50
bushels to the acre, was spread thereon,,
and harrowed in. ' - .
Our informant assured us, that while
this operation of deep ploughing was
going on, his father's neighbois admon
ished him Of the danger of poitoning his
land ; bnt that when the corn crop came
to be gathered, they changed their tunes,
instead of getting, as formerly, 3 or 4
barrels to thoero there were housed 143

It also, from the
alowness of its decay, continues its effect
longer than most other manures.- Its
cheapness also commends it, for all it
costs is the mere getting from the pond

before a new draft is necessary. In order
to have it prime, it should, be placed in a
pile for a few days, and ashes or lime
mixed with it, aud aubjected to workinfrs ;

The Gulp Stream and Ocean Moun
tains. In arecentlectnre of Prof. Bache,
of the Coast Survey, he stated that the
difficulty in correctly noting deep sea
soundings had been overcome. He said :
They had fonnd that the bottom of the
Atlantic ocean was traversed by a range
of monntams similar to those some dis
tanee back from the coast, and that the
Gulf Stream pursued its. way. over the
tops of these and had an evident connex
ion with them.
In the gorges of these ranges they have
found bands of cold water evidently from
the polar regions. As far South as lati
tude 29 degrees the register indicated, at
great depths water, at only two degrees
above the freezing point. These polar
streams seem to be pursuing a course from
north-east to south-west, and in a direct
ly contrary direction to the bands of warm
water which form the main feature of the
Gulf Stream. How far this knowledge
of the bands of cold water might be made
available to commerce he would not now
pretend to aay. , : . . .

The Greatest Biography of the Age !
Bg lleary S. Kaudall, L. - D. 1m tlirte Vol
. antra, Deface.
THIS work contains upwards of 2000 pages,
is printed on fine paper, and iahandsnmcli bound
in various styles. It is illustrated by several
engravings on steel, and numerous fac similes ;
among the former are two fine portraits of Jef
ferson. The fac si miles embrace, among others,
the original draft of the Declaraiion f Inde
pendence, in Jefferson's own hand-writing.
This is, in every sense, au authorized work.
It was iiu lei-Ukcii under the approbation of his
family, and with an unreserved areess to all the j
private papers of Jefferson in their possession ; j
and has received the benefit of their rvcullee-!
lions and opinions at crery s'ep.
son on every great public question which arose,
from his advent into public life, to his death a
period of about si'ity years, and enilracing the
whole forming period of the Revolntion. It
contains Jefferson's heretofore unpublished fata
ily correspondence ; selections from his finest
polished letters. State papers, etc., etc.
No other Life of Jefferson ever published
probably none that ever will be published can
bear any comparison to this in thoroughness,
fullness of iucident, and conscientious fidelity.
' ' This biography has evi
dently been a Uhorof loveand the years of pa
tient, assiduous toil it has cost, have been given
with ungrudging, untiring enthusiasm. iY. F.
At length the public have a Life of Thomas
Jefferson, that is not only fascinating, and there
fore sure to be popular, but one that will stand
the essential historic test that of accuracy and
truthfulness. It is seen that the ground-work
of the wliole is authentic co temporary mate
rial, and that of the kizhest order. To gather
it has been the work of rears. We would not
compare this volume with that inimitable and
incomparable biography of Boswell, and yet so
faithful is the portraiture that Jefferson is made
tn draw of himself, that his nature, his very
soul, U delineated with a distinctness not unlike
that in which Johnson stands out in the pages
of Boswell Boston I'ost.
Imbued with that enthusiastic a'dmiration of
his subject, without which a biographer is rarely
successful, Mr. Randall, nevertheless, docs not
seek to hide whatever faults he may find, either
from himself or from the reader. He paints the
picture as Cromwell insisted his should be pain
ted, "wartsand all." The picture gains by this
in life-like coloring', without losing any of its
majestic proportions. Albany fee. Jour.
No one who runs his eye, however casually,
over this work, will fail to be satisfied that Mr.
ttanaau nas aoueu very largely h me sweav oi j
ly to
tbe world's information about Jefferson, that he
has had access to sources hitherto unexplored,
and that be has done more than waa ever done
Uv of that great statesman. N. Y. Eoe. Post.
We have read with delight Mr. Randall's
captivating details of Mr. Jefferson's personal
history, which he has sedulously gathered, and
admirably (trouped together, from a great variety
rof authentic sources hitherto unexplored. Out
of the tempting richness of his materials, the
able and clear sighted author has constructed a
book at once most entertaininr and instructive
one that should be studied by every patriotof
the land KuMnena iznj.
.There ean be only one opinion as to the abil
ity, general impartiality and industry which Mr.
Randall has brought into combination in the
composition of this biography. ' ' He has
worthily executed a much wanted book. PkU

It will take a plaee among the choicest class
