Culture of Strawbeiries in Alternate Strips. A still more easy and economical mo le than that of culture in rows, is tliat of growing the strawberry in alternate htrijis. Early in April, or in August, being provided with a good 6tock of strong yonng plants, select a suitable piece of good, deep soil. Dig in a heavy coat of stable manure, pulverizing well and ra king the top soil. Strike out the top rows three feet apart with a line. The plants should now be planted along each line, about a foot apart in the row. -They will soon send out runners, and these tunners should be allowed to take pos session of every alternate strip of three feet the other strip being kept bare by vrnitiu.-illv iltslrovin" all runners 111)011 J. . rt. - - m .. ! it, the whole patch being kept free ol all . , . . ' ii ' weeds. The ocennied strip or bed of Yunners will now give a heavy crop of strawberries, and the open strips of three feet will serve as an alley from which to gather the fruit. After the crop is over, dig and prepare this alley or strip, for the ocennanev ol the new runners lor in , c.ovn'a mr TU nnnira trnm i u. vi ..: ...:n ,i' luo Ulu u. ... v.... j new space allotted to mem, ana win per-1 Iisds reauire a partial tuianin:? out, to Lave them evenly tlisttibuted. As soon as this is the case, say about the middle of August, dig under the whole of the old plants with a light coat of manure. The surface may be then sown with tur liips or Rpinagc, which will come on be- fnrA tlio nerr. Kp.ienn nf frnit.4 fn this - .

It is a valuable art to know how to make good butter, anu it is also a valuable art to know how to preserve it when it is made. The last named art must depend first on extract ing every thing that will ferment or bo come rancid by absorption of the oxy gen or acidifying principle of the air, and on excluding air as much as possible from it. We will relate a method which was last year adopted by Col. Daniel Craig, of ItadfiolJ. The Colonel's lady makes cxcclent but ter, to begin with, and part of his success Ynast be attributed to that. The butter wa packed down solidly and carefully in firkins, and a clean cloth fitted on tbo top of each, before ilia covers of the firkins were shut on. He then took a clean hogshead, or largo cask, and placod a Layer of salt on its bottom. lie then pnt in one or more firkins, in such a position as not to touch each other, and then poured in salt until the firkins were covered. In this way his butter kept as sweet and as sound as a nut for several months, and when he came to overhaul it for the purpose of selling it, ho found ev erything as pure and as nice as when it was packed away. This hint is worth following by traders and others who may wish to preserve good butter any length of time. We do not know that poor, lialf-inalc butter can be kept from be coming rancid by being managed in this manner, and it is no matter if it cannot, for snch bnttor is not worth the trouble. Maine Farmer. Plowing for Wheat. The first plow ing or breaking np as it is generally cal led, of the "summer fallow," ought to bo dona as early in June as possible, and should be plowed very deep. A sufficient .number of sheep should be turned in after an interval of two weeks, to keep down the grass and weeds that may spring np. The cross plowing should be done as early lis possible ; and the plow should not go as deep this time by two inches as the first plowing. It should bo disturbed no more by plow or harrow until the time arrives for sowing tho seed. It should then be gone over with a cultivator or harrow, and should be made loose and mellow not at a great depth, as many -suppose, but only sufficiently deep to cover the seed well, which should be harrowed in both ways. After following the above directions, your land being as good as mine, yon may expect to reap forty bush els of good plamp wheat from the acre. An Old Farmer. Swise. It is best to begin to fatten hogs the latter part of August, or the be gining of September, so that they may bo fit for the batcher before the weather becomes cold, as it is very difficult to put flesh on them in cold weather. When yon commence fatting swine, care shonld bo nsed not to give them more thsn'tTiey will eat with appetite. If they become cloyed their thriving is retarded ; and there is danger from staggers and other diseases. Their troughs should be replenished with a small qnantity of food at a time, and kept always clean and well seasoned with salt. Guernsey Jefferso nian. Virtues ok Smart Weed. It is al most a sure remedy in case of colic. Steep and drink the same as any other norb tea. in tue next place, it is worth S5 per hnndred for a stock of cattle if it is cut and well enred when in full bloom. Give an ox, cow, or horse, one pound per week during the timo they are np to hay, and it will keep their bowels and hide loose, it is an excellent physic. If a liorso has one pound a week, there is no danger of his having botts, or worms of any kind ; and they will eat it sooner 4han they will the best of hay. Guernsey Jefersoman. Liqpid Mascce for Grates. The Ohio Cultivator says, that a grape-vine -at a hotel in that State, bat three years OKI, nas climbed to tlie second story, and Las extended its'branches round the cor ners of the bnilding to a distance of twen ty or thirty feet, nearly tho whole being lull ot me clusters ot trait. I lie only unusual treatment it has reccivod, was a watering every day with dish water, and occasionally with soap suds. Working farmer. If wheat stands thin on the ground, the vacant places are commonly filled with noxions weeds, whose room had better be filled with wheat plants. Don't spare, therefore, the seods iu sowing. Two bushels of seed to the acre of winter wheat, will be found not too much ; and loss than sit or seven pecks should never he sown. City Ordinances.

No other Life of Jefferson ever published probably none that ever will be published can bear anv comparison to this in thoroughness, fullness of incident, and conscientious fidelity This biography has evi dently been a laborof love, and the vcarsofpa ticnt, assiduous toil it has cost, have been given with ungrudging, untiring enthusiasm. A. I". Tribune. At length the public have a Life of Thomas Jefferson, that is not only fascinating, and there fore sure to be popular, bat one that will stand the essential historic test that of accuracy and truthfulness, it is seen that the ground-work of the whole is authentic cotemporary mate rial, and that of the highest order. To gather it has been the work of years. W e would not compare this volume with that inimitablo and incomparable biography of Boswell.and yet so r.:i.r..i : .1. i . t . faithful is the portraiture that Jefferson is made to 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 Post. Imbued with that enthusiastic admiration of his subject, without which a biographer is rarely successful, Mr. Randall, nevertheless, does not seek to bide whatever faults he may find, either from himself or from the reader. He paints the picture as Cromwell insisted bis should be pain ted, "warts and all." The picture gains by this in iiie-uae coloring, wunoui toeing any or its majestic proportions. Albany fee. Jour. No one who runs his eye. however casually. over thi-work, will fail to be satisfied that Mr. Randall has added very largely to the stock of the world a information about Jefferson, that he has had access to sources hitherto unexplored, and that he has done more than was ever done by any one before him to illustrate the nersonal ity of that great statesman. X. Y. Eos. Post. We have read with delight Mr. Randall's captivating details of Mr. Jefferson's personal history, which he has sedulously gathered, and admirably grouped together, from a great variety of authentic sources hitherto unexplored.
