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
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
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

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

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

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-
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.

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
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.
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

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.

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

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

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.

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
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
