TlaTitude has. doubtless, something to do with a speedy dearth of vegetable matter, for the long hot weather determ ines a prompt conversion of vegetable matter into carbonic acid gas, etc.; while farther north the same material would remain on or in tho soil a much longer time without decomposing. But the loss of the vegetable matter is not the sole cause of the nronensity to bake. The withdrawal of the mineral ingredients must be credited with some of it, for the soluble mineral plant food in a soil ex ercises also a strong mnuenco in Keeping it light and porous. The question then arises: To what causes are due the general exhaustion of our lands l- An easy answer is: crop ping without manuring. This is only partially correct, for though it is the truth it is not tho whole truth. It is the truth, because all plants exhaust the soil on which they grow. Clover espe cially, which is by many regarded as a land renovator, lias been shown by emi nent chemists to be, almost beyond any other plant, a soil impoverisher, inas much as a singlo crop of it contains the ingredients for two or three crops of small grain. The analysis of the cotton fibre would seem to establish tho fact that land planted continuously to cotton ought to grow better year by vear, for tho very small amount of nitrogen and allied min erals, which enter into tho composition of cotton wool are unquestionably much less than that which is appropriated by the plant from tho air or which passes over yearly from the condition of inap propriablo to appropriable plant food. Why then should lands planted to cotton deteriorate? Because, while the fibre crop does not exhaust, even in a slight degree, the seed crop is nn enormous yearly drain upon the soil's fertility. Taken as a whole, the cotton crop is eminently exhaustive. But being, like clover, a deep rooted plant, tho transfer of material from the subsoil to the sur faco soil, insuring to surface rooting plants which come after it an abundant pabulum, the extent of its exhaus tiveness has been measurably lost sight of. But the sublime folly of squandering the cotton seed has been given up. It is now universally admitted that such a course is eminently detrimental. But even if all the seeds were returned to the land from tho gin, or as manure from the hog and cow-lots, the cotton crop would, we think, be still a degree ex haustive, unless certain conditions, to be presently discussed, were strictly re garded. There is one test which goes beyond all others in determining the value of any farmer's tactics. It is this: Have his lands become more fertile? Do his fields yield, with the same kind and amount of labor, larger crops than they did five or ten years ago? Tried by such a test end the excellence of tho test is unquestionable there has been a vast amount of bad farming in the Uni ted States. Tho fact is, there are the fewest good farmers front Maine to the Bio Grande. The northern farmers which are growing better, year by year, are few and far between. (Wo do not here include vegetable farms in the neighborhood of cities.) Clover deceived them and made them believe that its ex haustive transfer, from the deep to the superficial soil, were veritable additions to the soil's store of fertility. Deep ploughing and underdraining deceived in ways not essentially different. All the timo the process of exhaustion has gone on, and if correct comparative anal yses of tho whole plant food in a given depth, on most of our farms, could be gotten, they would show a very material decrease in the last twenty or thirty years. Up to this time we have been rioting upon the bounty of nature, and have at length gotten to tho point where it v !. 1 jrrfittvn iiuiajcwui v ,uj iKt wwui Kuril lith her,rrorder--to- secure a contin ence of her favor. , A few moments ago the opinion was pressed that if every seed of a cotton op wer restored to tho soil, tho cron ould still be, under certain circum stances, exhaustive. lxmg observation of tho effect of rains convinces me that a very inadequate conception of their spoli ations U-fVnerally entertained. I liave intended for years past to subject this matter to tne test oi careiui experiment, but circumstances have prevented. I recommend such experiments to your readers, as a most valuable vein for in vestigation. The nmount is enormous, as tlie billions of tons of foreign materials ifrrMtr swainps and lowlands abundantly testifr. 'yhe deterioration from this cause is '-specially great in lands planted to cot ton, lor tuo reason unit, cotuin naving w surface roots, the slightest obstacles re ofl'ored to tho translating ixwcr of nins, whereas both corn and the small grains permeate, with a close network of roots, the surface soil, and bind it so firmly as to bar very effectually such depredations. Tho inclination, or lay of th land and tlio rows has, or courso, milch to do with the extent of these iliations. There are, I learn, in this ito Homo lull lands, cleared since the nr, that are already absolutely worn out, and present to the eye a congeries of rod hillocks and gaping gullies. But even when tho inclination of tho land and the rows is very gradual, an ex tensive olwervation convinces mo that the deterioration from this cause is con siderabloi In this connection it will Ixs interesting to mention a fact noticed by Prof. Johnston in his Agricultural Chem istry: Htiir clays kept in gross some years are very much ameliorated more than the increase of vegetable matter would explain, l'rof. Johnston in discussing the phenomenon declares that there is an ac tual decrease of tho proportion of alumni urn in tho superficial strata. IIo attributes this to a sinking of the finer clay par ticles. My own explanation is that while the coarser particles, of soil are en- I vclocd and firmly Jiojd by the mosh of grass root, the fino particles, siispuudud in the rain water, escape with this and settle on some adjacent or remote low land. The creator weight too of the coarser materials would insure to them a comparative immobility. Whon the western rivers overflow, the coarse sand is deposited on or near their banks, whilo tho finer sediment 5s carried fur ther back into the swamp. Horo I will glance, and only glance, at ono feature of the climate of tho northern states, which is largely conser vative on this point. During the winter months their soils are firmly locked by ice, while ours, liquified as it wore, are depredated by the ever recurring winter deluges of rain. I remarked above that the effects of deep ploughing, and underdraining even, had often Wn mistaken for proofs of veritable additions to the real fertility of soils, when in fact they were, in great measure, devices for more thorough ex haustion. That farming is essentially poor, whatever its temporary results, that does not add year by year to the soil-store of appropriable plant food. But before dismissing the subject of rain-spoliation, I would remark that while un derdraining seems to offer an efficacious remedy, there are objections to the device now so popular. In portions of Ger many, on underdrainea lands, such an accumulation of vegetable matter takes place, that a species of worm thrives to the destruction of the crop. In England the same accumulation of vegetable mat ter is frequently encountered, and they are forced to apply enormous quantities of lime for its correction. In Germany, in some places, driving the sheep over the soil is resorted to, for its compres sion, to the groat injury, i,t is said,jif the sheep. The same injurious tcudency, doubtless, outcrops in our northern states, for we noticed, some years ago, that farmers, who had incurred the very bo rious expense of underdrains for their land, complained that the resulting growth, though making a brave show of stem and stalk, am not give a corre sponding increase of grain. In our lati tude this evil tendency will be probably, le&t manifest, because of the more rapid decomposition of vegetable matter, be fore noticed, and a less propensity to the encouragement of peat plants. The farmer's soil being his real bank of deposits, we have tried to show with tho importance of keeping well locked, some of the insecure doors. At another time we may have something to say about the proper mode of depositing in it, for as in other good banks, facile draws and timely deposits are closely connected. J. A. Goree, in Rual Carolian. TRICliiNOSfsT Tlie t.l(lle Wormi nrf Mprwf Inff RnpMIr Look out for them. For microscopic examination of pork killed in southeastern Indiana, we have from three to 10 icr cent, of tho hogs affected with trichinosis, the number of hogs diseased varying greatly in diflorent localities. That over 5,000,000 hogs are slaught ered and packed in the western states, not including those which are put up for family uso by the farmers: that if four per cent, of this pork is diseased, which we believe to be a low estimate, we have 211,484 diseased hogs put annually upon the market ; or, at an average of 200 pounds to the hog, 44,296,800 pounds of diseased meat, every ounce of which, under favorable circumstances, is capable of producing disease. That from the cases of trichinosis that camo under our observation, and the post mortem examinations, and the effects upon the diseased meat, wo have come to the conclusion that 90 per cent, of dis ease produced by eating trichinous pork appears cither us gasto-enteritis, or as a diarrhea or dysentery, and not mor, than 10 per cent, as the fully developed form of trichinosis, in which the mus cular system becomes affected. That as diarrhea, dysentery and en teritis rank high as causes of mortality in the United States, these diseases caus ing 31,143 deaths in 1870, as shown by the last census reports; and as wo have seen that a large amount of trichinous pork, capable of producing these diseases, is among the principal articles of food in our country ; we think it mora than probable that trichinie have a much greater influence in the etiology of this class of diseases than has been recognized by tho profession. That it is highly probable that, when the fact becomes more generally known hat so large a per centage of pork is swarming with trichns, capable of pro ducing disease, it may have an effect upon the use of this meat, and conse quently affect the sale, to some extent, of one of the principal articles of com merce in the west. Dr. Qeorg Sutlon. Oiling; Harness. A good harness is costly, but if prop pcrly used and cared for will last a good many years. If neglected it will soon need repairs, and in a short time become utterly worthless. In caring for a har ness one great point is to see that it is suitably oiled. A work harness, in use on a farm, should be oiled twice a year, in the spring and fall. It should bo taken entirely apart ; the places where sweat and dirt nave collected cleaned with a chip or an old case-knife, then washed clean in warm water, in which a little Castile soap has been dissolved. As they are washed the straps should be hung on a pole to dry. When the outside is nearly dry, but before the moisturo is all out of the leather, the oil should be applied. This may be done with a clean paint brush, which is the best th'ng for the purpose, a spong or woolen cloth. A moderate quantity slionld be used, and if it does not soften the leather enough, another light coating may lie applied when the first one is well dried in. This is better than it is to put on a great deal at once. Care should be taken to obtain a good qualilty of oil. Neat's-foot is the very best kind of oil, for leather. There are some patent preparations in which a water-proof ingredient is ndded to tho oil and also a little coloring Biibstanco to make the leather look black and glossy. An honest mixture of this kind is octler than the crudo oil. Cheap oils are gen erally poor. When dry, the harness should be rubbed with Castile soap, then with a dry woolen cloth. When this is done, it may bo put together and used. This work should not be neglected until tho hurry of planting and hoeing time, but should receive attention now. Live Stock Journal.

Tiwm or lilr Wr.rlf In MlwilMlpl Ko Maarkofelu Fro&i Uiorlo IMwovrry. Prof. James it. Uage, of Washington city, an eminent geologist and mineralo gist, who has recently been engaged in making extensive explorations regarding the works of the ancient mound-builders, reports the discovory of a very remark able wall in Claiborne county, eighteen miles east of Port Gibson, Miss. Thd dis covery has boon incidentally mentioned in several papers within the course of a fow days, but they do not appear to have realized a tithe of its antiquarian and ar chaeological interest and importance. Wo condense the particulars of the discovery from the Professor's statement in the Washington Republican. It appears that blocks of the stone have been taken by the farmers for building purposes fur many years, and it has formed a general quarry for furnishing large blocksofstono. But the farmers have never, it seems.boen aware of the antiquarian importance of this wall, which is claimed to be coeval or anterior to that of Hadrian's famous wall in England. Prof. Gago employed laborers and uncovered a portion of the wall 20 feet in width and 175 feet in length, but on removing the soil here and there he traced it 600 feet. Tho workmen un covered the wall to a depth of six feet, but lower than this the excavations were not continued. Large forest trees of pine and oak, several hundred years old, are growing on top of the wall. The blocks are limestone, and belong to the tertiary formation. They were hewn out of this formation and are three feet in length, twenty inches in width and twenty-two inches in thickness. One of these blocks has been shipped to Philadelphia for the centennial. The wall from which it was taken forms two Bides of a jectangler.one part running east and west and the other north and south. The excavations were made near the angta. Three miles' due south from this point another portion of the wall re-appears on the banks of Bayou Pierce, owing to the washing out of the creek, making it a large exposure, and it is therefore judged that this is a continu ation of the ancient wall. The wall was built on the sido of a ridge overlooking a swamp which, in ancient times, was evi dently the bed of a lake, and the inference is that the wall waserectedbythcancicnt occupants as a barrier against an enemy, or possibly as an ancient levee or dyke erected for the protection of tho inhabit ants against the encroachments of the lake or the waters of the Mississippi. From other evidences of the wide extent of this wall, as described by Prof. Gage, it appears that it included a large area of land, covering probably 400 square miles and extending to the Mississippi river. The locality where the wall exists is in the neighborhood of the Natchez Indians, who were found in a state of considerable civilization when first visited by the French.and these romains,it is conjectured by Prof. Gage, had some connection with the occupation by the warlike ancestors of this interesting and famous tribe. Warner's Firc-Extinguishcr. Mr. Warner, a respcctablo and law abiding citizen of Baker street, rode home in an express wagon the other day, having a hand fire-extinguisher and the driver for company. "What's that thing ?" asked his wife in contemptuous tones as she opened the hall door. " What's that ? Why, that's a fire-extinguisher; best thing you ever saw; meant to have got one a year ago." " Jacob, you are always making a fool of yourself," she continued, as she shut the door. " Every patent-right man gets around you as a cat lays for a mouse. "Does, eh? If you know anything at all, you know that every store and office in Detroit has one o' these. They have saved lots o' buildings, and may save ours." " You throw it at tho fire don't you?" she asked in sarcastic tends. He carried it up stairs into a closet without replying, and sho followed and asked : " Does it shoot a firo out?" "If you don't know anything I'll learn you- something 1 It is full of chem icals ;"you strike on this knobon top and she's all ready to open this faucet and play on the fire ? She grinned as sho walked around it, and finally asked : "Do you get," a horse to draw it around ? " No, I don't get a horse to draw it around. You see these straps ? Well, I back up, put my arms through them, and here it is on my back." " I see it is," she sneered. "And can't I run to any part of tho house with it?" he demanded. "See see r And he entered along the hall, into the bedrooms and out, and was turning the head of the stairs when his foot caught in the carpet. He threw up his arms and she grabbed at him, and both rolled down stairs. He yelled and she yelled. Sometimes he was ahead, and then she took the lead, and neither of them had passed under the "string when tho extinguisher, bumping and jamming, began to shoot off its charge o, chemicals. " You old ! " she started to say when a stream from the hose struck her between tho eyes, and Bhe didn't finish. " What in o-u-e-ht" roared Mr. War ner, as he got a dose in the ear. They brought up in a heap at the bot tom of the Btuirs, the stream playing into the parlor, against the hall door, and up stairs by turns and she grasped : " I'll have you Bent to a fool asylum 1 " " Who's a fool 1 " he roared, dancing around with his eyes full of chemicals. " I'm fainting I " she squeaked. " And I've broken my back 1 " he shouted. ' It was a sad house when those two highly respectable old people got bo that they could use their eyes and discuss matters calmly. And she doubled up her fist and hoarsely said : " Take that investigator, or distin guishcr, or whatever you call it, back down town and tell everybody, that you are a lunatic 1 " And he said: " Dummit 1 1 know more than all your family put together 1 " Free Prm. Literature for Children. We hope we will not be considered a misanthrope if we aver, that of happi ness or misery in this lifo of ours, thero is a preponderance of the latter. The infant in long clothes is not a stranger to grief; youth is acquainted with anguish as keen as it is brief ; middle ago with calm endurance suffers continually ; and old age, looking back on all the years contemplates a waste of woes only re lieved Dy an occasional oasis of green memory. Since, then, sorrow is the birth-right and heritage of man, should it not be the study of the old to shield the impressible young from emotions that will sadden the bright spirits ? Especially does this responsibility rest upon the writers of books, and tlie editors of magazines and papera for children. With a majority of these, a studied effort is mado to excite the emotional nature of tho sympathetic young, tho effect is often tho reverse of salutary giving them dreary views of life and discouraging aspects of human nature, which to an innocent child is better than It really is. We were lod to these reflections to-day by a scene that occurred under our ob servation. A little daughter of nine summers, of fino and sensitive organiza tion, was reading in another room a re cently published book. She alarmed us by running into our room, weeping bit terly, and throwing her arms aoout us. sobbed out, "This book is too sad. I want to read more, but I cannot." Bhe would not be comforted, and aftcrawhile, her imagination beinir actively exercised. she again sobbed out, " I'm so lonesome to-day, and I don't fid well ; my limlx acho,'and my head hurts me trio," Fi nally she was composed, with faco-bath-ing, caresses and a genllu reprimand, jy was put to bed. In tho midst of tho weeping of tho little girl, our attention was called to a wee baby sister just seven months old; who, in sympathy was hiding her head on her nurse shoulder, and with quivering lips was sobbing out bcr woes. This was too much. Tears started to our own eyes, and we inwardly de claring that our precious darling, eager as she is for knowledge, should learn from tho great teacher, nature, and not sutler, out of time, on account of the uentimun tulisiu of the writers of the day. Iron-Making: In tho South. " If some statements on the subject of Iron-making, presented in a letter pub lished by Mr. Geo. T. Lewis, of Tennes see, be correct, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee are dostined to become, if not the future center of iron-making in the United States, the seat of large and im portant furnace interests at least. Mr. Lewis has been engaged in making-iron in Tennessee for forty years, and has studied and experimented until he pro Teases to know all about it. Ho slates that pig-iron not only can be made, but has been and is made in theso three southern slates for less than $16 a ton, a price far below the cost of making it in tho iron districts of the north and east. Tho cost of producing in Pennsylvania is put down at $29.50 a ton j at Youngs town, Ohio, at $30.50 a ton, and in Indi ana at $28.50 a ton, while in the south it ranges from $15.43 a ton in Tennessee to $10 in lleorgia and Alabama. 1 planation of this greater chew Thefx- found in tho abundance of chari , good stone-coal in these states, bOji be nau, wun limestone, near me iron .urns; the mildness of the climate which makes winter expenditures nearly as light as those of summer, and the cheapness of colored labor. The Alabama and Ten nessee ore is said to be of a sujicrior quality, and a favorite in the market. When it is considered that the Pennsyl vania furnaces are now forced to send to Missouri and lake Superior for ore to mix with tho different ores of that state, there would Bccm to lie nothing needed but capital to transfer, a largo portion of the iron manufactures of Pennsylvania to these favored states of tho south.1 Passions that Induce Disease. Tho paisions which act most severely on the physical life are anger, fear, hatred and grief. The other passions are com paratively innocent. What is called the passion of love is not injurious until it lapses into grief and anxiety; on the con trary, it sustains the physical power. What is called ambition is of itself harm less; for ambition, when it exists purely, is a nobility lifting its owner entirely from himself into the exalted service of mankind. It injures when it is debased by its meaner ally, pride; or, when stim ulating a man to too strenuous efforts af ter some great object, it leads him to the performance of excessivo mental or physi cal labor, and to tho consequences that follow such effort. The passion called avarice, according to my experience, tends rather to the preservation of the body than to its dete rioration. The avaricious man, who seems to the luxurious world to bo debarring himself of all the pleasures of the world, and even to bo exposing himself to the fangs of poverty, is generally placing him self in the precise conditions favorable to a long and healthy existence. By his economy, he is saving himself from all the worry incident to penury; by his caution ho is screening himself from all the risks incident to speculation or the attempt to amass wealth by harzardous means; by his regularity of hours and perfect appro priation of the sunlight, in preference to artificial. illumination, he rests iitd4V0TlaV)1,'-. 45 ,. ,:iu n, :u.;i l ...in. .nTT-Bacon dear Side: ill periods that precisely accord with th- poriodicy ot nature: by Ins abstemious ness :n living he takes just enough to live, which is precisely the right thing to do according to the rigid natural law. Thus, in almost every particular, ho goes On his way freer than other men from the external causes of all the induced diseases and better protected than most men from the worst consequences of those diseases which spring from causes that are uncon trollable. ' Hoo Cholera Preventive. We ftpd the following in an exchange, creditetf to a writer in the Southern Cultivator: I-ast year I lost nearly all my hogs with chol era. My neighbor lost none scarcely, which led me to believe that he must pos sess a soverign remedy for this eviL I asked him why he lost no hogs. Irjre? ply was that "he kept them clearof worms and stimulated with black pepper." 8aid he, "I first fed them on corn soaked in lye and copperas, to clear them of worms afterward gave them plenty of black pep per. Those that were sick got well and those that were well remained so, of course." . This year I have given my hogs art oc casional dose, twice a week, of knrosene oil, said to be a preventive of cholera. Several of my neighbors lost nearly all their hogs, and six weeks ago mine showed signs of disease, and I concluded1 to try "lye and pepper." I prepared it as fol lows: First, shell an ear of corn and soak in strong lye all night; next morning, add a half teaspoonful of pulverised cop. per as, mix and feed in a ti High. This was repeated on tho following Homing and a half teaspoonful of black pepper was added. Alter this I put a teaspoon ful of pulverised pepper in the food, boiled grits, every other morying for a week. Result My hogs stopped dying, all that ate got well, and are as thrifty now as I could wish. The above is the dose for a single hog. It is limple and reliablo; as a preventive it can't be beat, and I have seen hogs sick, very sick, too, re stored to good health by tho use of this remeuy.
