WHAT I KNOW OF FARMING. BY HORACE (IBEKLCY. VIII. -Growing Timber—Tree Planting. In my judgment, the proportion of a small farm that should be permanently devoted to trees (other than fruit) is not less than one fourth; while, of farms exceeding one hun dred acre, in area, that proportion should be not less than one-third, and may often be profitably increased to one-half. lam think ing of such as are in good part superficially rugged and rocky, or sandy and .sterile, such &B New-England, eastern New York, northern New Jersey, with both slopes of the Allegha iiies, as well as the western Ihird of our con tinent, abound in. It may be that it is ad visable to be content with a smaller propor tion of timber in the Prairie States and the broad, fertile intervals which embosom most of our great riverr for at least a part of their course; but I doubt it. And there is scarcely 3 farm in the whole country, outside of the great primitive forest in which openings hr.ve but recently been made, whic-b some tree planting is not -rgently required. "Too much Laud,,' you will hear assigned u every aide as a reason for poor farming and meager crop 3. Ask an average fifmer in New England, in Virginia, in Kentucky, or in Alabama, why the crops of his section are in the average no better, aud the answer three times iii four, wiil be, "Our farmers have 100 much laud" —that is, uot too much absolute ly, but too much relatively to their capital, stock, aud general ability to till effectively. The habitual grower of poor crops will proffer this explanation quite as freely atd frequent ly as his more thrifty neighbor. And what every one asserts must have a basis of truth. Now, I do not mean to quarrel with the in stinct which prompts my couatryrneu to buy and hold too much land. They feel, as I do, that land is still cheap almost anywhere in this country —cheap, if not iu view ol the in come now derived from it, certainly in con templation of the price it must goon command and the income it might, under better man agement, be made to yield. Under this con viction—or, if you please, impression—every one is intent on holding on to more land than he can profitably till, if uot more than be can promptly pay for. What I do object to is simply this—that thousands, who have more laud than they have capital to work profitably, will persis iu half-tilling many acres, instead of thor oughly farming one-half or one-third so many, and getting the rest into wood so fast as may he. lam confident that twu-thirds of all our farmers would improve their circumstances and increase their incomes by concentrating their efforts, their means, their fertilizers, up on half or to two thirds of the area they now > kin and skin, and giving the residue back to •.mber growing. In my own billy, rocky, often boggy, West chester—probably within six of being the old est Agricultural Comity in the Union—l am confident that ten thousand acres might to morrow be given back to forest with profit to the owners and advantage to alt its inhabi tants. It is a fruit-growing, milk-producing, truck-farming county, closely adjoining the greatest city of the New World ; hence, one wherein laud cau be cultivated us profitably as almost anywhere else—yet lam satisfied that half its surface may be more advantageously devoted to timber tban to grass or tillage. Nay : I doubt that one acre in a hundred of rocky laud—that is, land ribbed or dotted with rocks that ibe bar or the rock hook can not lift from their beds, and which it will not as yet pay to blast—is now tilled to profit, or ever will he until it shall be found advisable to clear Ihem utterly of stoue breaking through or rising within two feet of the surface. The time will doubtless arrive in which many iields will i>ay for clearing o( stone that would not do so to day; these. I urge, should be given up to wood now, und kept wooded until the hoursbali have strnck for ridding them ot every impediment to the steady progress of both the surface and the subsoil plow. Were all the rocky crests and rugged ac clivities of this County bounteously wooded ouce more, and kept so for a generation, our floods would be less injurious, our springs unfailing, and our streams more constant and equable : our blasts would be less bitter and our gales less dectnictive to fruit: we should have vastly more birds to delight es by their melody aud aid us in ur not very successful war with devourit insects; we should grow peaches, cherries, and other delicate fruits, which the violent caprices of our seasons, the remorseless devastations of our visible and invisible insect enemies, have all but annihi lated: and we should keep more cows and make more milk on two thirds of the land now devoted to grass than we actually do from the whole of it. And what is true of Westches ter is measurably true of every rural county in the Union. 1 have said that f believe in cutting trees as well as in growing them; I have not said, and do not mean to suy, that I believe in cut ting everything clean as yon go. That was ouce proper in Westchester; it is still ad visa ble in forest covered regions, where the sun must be let in before crops can be grown ; but, in nine casos out of teu, timber should be thinned or culled out rather than cut off: und, for every tree taken away, at least two should be planted or set out. We have pretty welt outgrown the folly of letting every apple tree bear such fruit as it will; though in the orchard of my father's little farm in Amherst. N. 11.. whereon I was born, no tree had ever been grafted when 1 bade adieu to it in 1820; aud I presume none ha been to this dav. By this time, almost ■ very farmer realizes that he can't afford to grow little, gnarly, villainously sour or de testably bittersweet apples, when, by duly setting a graft at a cost of two dimes, he makes that identical tree yield Greenings or Pippins ut least as bounteously. I presume the cumulative experience ot fifty or sixty gum-rations of apple-growers bas ripened this conclusion. Why do they not infer readily and generally that growing indifferent timber where the best and most valued would grow as rapidly, as a stupid, costly blander? It teems to me that whoever has attained the conviction that apple trees should be grafted ought to know that it is wasteful tc grow Bed flak. Beech, White Maple, and Alder, where White Oak, Hickory, Locust, and White Pine, might be grown wiih equal facility, in ' equal luxuriance, provided the right seeds were planted, and a little pains taken to keep down, for a year or two the shoots spon taneously sent up by the wroug ones. North of the Potomac and east uf ihe Ohio, and (1 presume) in limited districts else " here, rocky, sterile woodlands, costing §2 to S,O per acre according to location. Ac., arc to day the cheapest property to be bought in the United Stales. Kven though nothing were done with them but keep out fire and cattle und let the young trees grow as tbey will, money can be more profitably and eifely invested in lands covered by young timber than in anything else. The' paieat, who would invest • few thousand for the benefit of children or grandchildren still young, may buy woodlands which will be worth twenty times their present cost within the next twenty years. But bet-v even than this would it be to buy up rocky, craggy, naked bill r.dea and eminences which have been pastured to death, and. shutting out cattle inflexibly, scratch these over with plow, mattock, hoe, or pick, as circumstances shall dictate, plant them thickly with Chestnut, Walnut, Hickory, White Oak, and the seeds of locust and White Pine. T say Locust, though not yet certain that thlf tree mast not be started in garden or nursir/ beds and transplanted when two or three years old, so puny and feeble is it at the outset, and so likely to be smothered under leaves or killed out by its more favored neighbors. I have experiments in progress not yet matured, which may shed light on this point before 1 finish these essays. Plant thickly, and of diverse kinds, so as to cover the gronnd promptly and choke out weeds and shrubs, with full purpose to thin and prune as circumstances shall dictate. Many farmers are averse to planting timber, because frhey think) nothing can be realized therefrom for the next twenty or thirty years, which is as long as they expect to live. But this is a grave miscalculation. Let us sup pose a rocky, billy pasture-lot of ten or twen ty acres rudely scratched over as I have sug gested, and thickly seeded with hickory nuts and white oak acorus only: within five years it will yield abundantly of hoop-poles, though the better, more promising half be left to mature, as they should be: two years later, another and larger crop of hoop-poles may be cut, still sparing the best; and thence forth a valuable crop of limber may be taken from that land: for, if cut at the proper sea son, at least two thrifty sprouts will start from every slump: and so that wood will yield a clear income each year while its beat trees are steadily growing aud maturing. Ido not advise restriction to those two species of tim ber; but I insist that a young plantation of forest trees may and should yield a clear in come in every year after it fourth. —But this paper grows too long, aud I must postpone to the next my more especial sug gestions to young farmers with regard to tree planting.

A SCHOOLMASTER, on being asked what was me*til by the word '"fortification," answered, "two tweutifications make a fortification."

Drauqce has a precocious student of as tronomy, who, under examination, gave the following astonishing answer to the question, ! "What is the Milky Way?" ! "The Milky Way is a collection of white clouds in the sky, called the trade-winds or the aurora borealis." A NEW ORLEANS wife-beater, confronted in court with the swollen and inflamed coun tenance of his wife, was asked by the judge what be bad to say about that. "Why, that'B erysipelas: it's an hereditary complaint in my family," was the response. THE most consummate coolness thai we have heard ol was that of the steerage pas senger asleep in a raging storm. " >\ ake up," cried one of his comrades, "the ship is sinking!" "Well, what is the use of waking, then?" he answered, as he turned over for another nap. NOT long ago, in one of oar New England towns, a woman entered a probate office with four little "hopefuls," and with a countenance that would do justice to hard days commenced her truly afteetiug appeal: "Pleaee your Hon or, my husband disd detested, and left four little infidel children, and,., pointed roe txe cutiouer, and [ pray your lordship will allow •no to execute the deed." | Ax ambitious gentleman iu Connecticut i appeals, over his own signature, "Too tbo j rncckanics and labouring men of my native ■ town.

Thunders of applause followed thesenti i roent. The fight began, the ranks wavered, and the priest took to his heels, when a sol dier, stopping hiui, reproachfully referred to the promised supper in Paradise. "True, my son, true," said the priest, "but I never take supper." A LITTLK five-year-old boy was being in structed iu morals by his mother. The old j lady told him that all such terms as "by gol ly!"

Tb remarkable success which attended our negotiation of the Loans of the CEXTUAL PACIFIC RAILROAD CUMPAXV and the WESTERS PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY, and the popularity andcred- I it which these Loans have maintained in the markets, both in this country and Europe, have shown that the First Mortgage Bonds of wisely located and honorably-managed Railroads are promptly recognised and readily taken as the most suitable, safe, and adrantageous form of investment, yielding a more liberal income tban can hereafter be derived from Government Bonds, and available to take tlieir place. Assured that, in the selection and negotiation of superior Railroad Loans, we are meeting a great public want, and rendering a valuable ser vice—both to the holders of Capital and to those great National works of intorual improvement whose intrinsic merit and substantial character entitle them tc the use of Capital and the confi dence of investors—wc now offer with special con deoce and satisfaction the FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS OF TIIF. Chesapeake uiul Ohio Railroad Company. The Chesapeake an-' Ohio Railroad, connecting the Atlantic coast and the magnificent harbors of the Chesapeake Bay with tho Ohio River at a point of reliable navigation, and thus, with the entire Kailroa system and water transportation of the great West and Southwest, FORMS THE ADDITIONAL EAST AND WEST TRUNK LINES, so imperatively demanded for the ac commodation of the immense and rapidly-grow ing transportation between the Atlantic seaboard and Europe on the one hand, and the great pro ducing regions of the Ohio and Mississippi Val leys on the other. THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ROAD AS A NEW OUTLET FROM THE WEST TO THE SEA magnifies it into one of national consequence, and insures to it an extensive through trafHie from tho day of its completion; while, in the de velopment of the extensive agricultural and min eral resources of Virginia and West-Virginia, it possesses, along its own line, the elements of a large and profitable local business. Thus the great interests, hoth general and local, which demand the completion of the CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO RAILROAD to the Ohio River, afford the surest guarantee of its success and value, and RENDER IT THE MOST IMPORTANT AND SUBSTANTIAL RAILROAD ENTERPRISE NOW IN PROGRESS IN THIS COUNTRY. Its superiority as an East and West route, and the promise of an immense and profitable trade awaiting its completion, hare drawn to it the attention and co-operation of prominent Capital ists and Railroadmen of this City of sound judg ment and known integrity, whose connection with it, together wilh that of eminent citizens and bas inets men of Virginia and West Virginia, IN SURES AN ENERGETIC, HONORABLE and SUCCESSFUL MAN A<; EM EXT. The Road is completed and in operation from Richmond to the celebrated White Sulphur Springs of West Virginia, 227 miles, and there remain hut 200 miles (now partially constructed) to be completed, to carry it to the proposed ter minus on the Ohio river, at, or near, the mouth of the Big Sandy river, lid miles above Cinoin. nati, and 350 miles below Pittsburgh. Lines are now projected or in progress through Ohio and Kentucky to this point, which will con nect the CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO WITH THE ENTIRE RAILROAD SYSTEMS OF THE WEST AND SOUTHWEST, AND WITH THE PACIFIC RAILROAD. Its valuable franchises and superior advanta ges will place the CHI-APKAK* ASO OHIO KAIL ROAI> COMPANY among the richest and most powerful and trustworthy corporations of the country; AND THERE EXISTS A PRESENT VALVE, IN COMPLETED ROAD AND WORK DONE, EQUAL TO THE ENTIRE AMOUNT OF THE MORTGAGE.- The details of the Loan have been arranged with special reference to the wanta of all classes of investors, and combine the various features of convenience, safety, and protection against loss or fraud. The Bonds are in denominations of SIOOO, *SOO, and 8100. They will be issued as Coupon Bonde, pupa ble to Hearer, and may be held in that form; or The Bond may be regietered in the name of the owner, with the coupons remaining payable to bearer, attached, the principal being then trans ferahle only on the books of the Company, unless re-assigned to hearer; or The coupons may be detached and cancelled, the Bond made a permanent lirgietered Bond, transferable only on the books of the Company, and the interest made payable only to the regis tered owner or his attorney.

The Loan is secured by a mortgage upon the entire Line of Road from Richmond to the Ohio River, with the equipment and all other property and appurtenances connected therewith. A SINKING FUND OF SIOO,OOO PER AN NUM IS PROVIDED FOR THE REDEMP TION OF THE BONDS, TO TAKE EFFECT ONE YEAR AFTER THE COMPLETION OF TUB ROAD.

The obvious rea son is, that it is a tnorc reliable and far more ef. fectual remedy than any other. Those who have tried it, know that it cured them ; those who have not, know that it cures thoir neighbors and friends, and all know that what it does once it does al ways—that it never fails through any fault or neglect of its composition. We have thousands upon thousands of certificates of their remarkable cures of the following complaints, but such cures are known in every neighborhood, and we need not publish them. Adapted to all ages and con ditions in ail clitnatcs; containing neither 'alo mel or anv deleterious drug, they amy be tak*m with safety by anybody. Then sugar coating preserve- them ever fresh and makes them pleas ant to take, while being purely vegetable no harm can rise from their use in any quantity. They operate by their powerful influence on the internal viscera to purify the blood and stimu late it into healthy action---remove the obstruc tions of the stomach, bowls, liver, and other or. gans of the body, restoring their irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever they exist, such derangements as are the first origin of dis ease. Minute directions ure given in the wrapper on the box, for the following complaints, which these PILLS rapidly cure : For DYSPEPSIA or INDIGESTION, LIST LESSXESS. LANGUOR and LOSS OF APPE TITE, they should be taken moderately to stim ulate the stomach and rrstore its healthy tone and actios. For LIVER COMPLAINT and its various symptoms, BILIOUS HEADACHE, SICK HEACACHE, JAUNDICE or GREEN SICK. NESS. BILIOUS COLIC A BILIOUS FEVERS, they should be judiciously taken for each case, to correct the diseased action or remove the obstruc tions which cause it. For DYSENTERY or DIAURIKKA, but one mild dose is generally required. For RIIEUMATI.-M. GOUT. GRAVEL, PAL PITATION OF THE HEART, PAIN IN THE SIDE, BACK and LOINS, they should bo con tinuously taken, as required, to change the dis eased action of the system. With such change those complaints disappear. For DROPSY and DROPSICAL SWELLINGS they should be taken in large arid frequent doses to produce the effect of a drastic purge. lor SUPPRESSION a large dose should be ta ken as it produces the desired effect by sympathy. As a DINNER PILL, take one or two PILLS to promote digestion and relieve tho stomach. An occasional dose stimulates tho stomach and bowels into healthy action, restores the appetite, and invigorates the system. Hence it is often advantageous where no serious derangement ex iats. One who feels tolerablv well, often finds that a dose of these Pills makes him feel decideu ly better, from their cleansing and renovating ef fect on the digestive apparatus. DR. J. C.

Mr. Middleton: Dear ; Sir:—Mrs. Bowser was in much suffering for some four weeks with Rheumatism, and got some of your Pain Care, and the first night I applied it it eased the pain; and after keeping on using it for two weeks she was restored to health. I feel it to he my doty, as It is a pleasure, to write this recommendation tor the benefit of others. JACOB BOWSER. BEDFORD, May 18. 1869. Mr. W. W.

AUGUSTUS GARYER. BEDFORD, May 26, 1869, Mr. Middleton: Sir— I procured one bottle of your medicine and used one-half of it for Khenmatism, which effected a permanent cure up to this time. I cannot hesi tate in saying that it is the best remedy I ever used. A. B. CARN. BEDFORD, May 8, 1569. I take great pleasure in giving my testimony to the value of 'Middle ton's Wonderful Pain Care." I have been a mar tyr to Rheumatism. For two months previous to Feb. 25th, last, I was suffering intensely with pain so severe, that daring all that lime I had not one night of comfortable steep. I could not put my hands to my face, could not comb my own hair, nor feed myself: hut after having the Pain Cure applied once, I found relief enough to give me comfortable sleep, and with its steady use, I con tinued to get better, and now at the end of ten weeks from its first application, I have compara tively free use of my hands, sleep well and can attend to business. It has done me more good than all other mediciues I have evir used put together, and I cheerfully give this certificate of its value. ELI M. FISHER. BEDFORD, April 11, 1869. Mr. W. W. Middle ton: This is to certify that I was taken with Rheu matism, in my right shoulder, ox the evening of the Sth inst., so that I was unable to raise my hand to my face. I got some of your Pain Care and applied it twice, and was entirely relieved. I would recommend to every one who suffers with Rheumatism to give it a trial and be cured. Yours Ac. A. F. MILLER. BEDFORD, May 17, 1869. Mr. Middleton: Dear Si* I b*ve used several bottles of your medicine in my family, and find U to be all yon claim for it. Yours, truly, JOHN HAFER. BEDFOKD, May 13, 1869.

In point of liter ary ability this Review is fast rising to a level with its competitors. It is the advocate of polit ical and religious liberalism. 4.

Passing beyond the narrow formalism of schools and parties, it appeals to a wider range of sympathies and a higher integrity of conviction. 6.

Equalling the Quarterlies in its literary and scientific depart ments, it has won a wide reputation for the nar ratives and sketches which enliven its pages.
