charine matter contained in the circulating
fluids may be saved, that might otherwise be
expended bj the plant in the subsequent sta
ges of growth ani in the maturation of the
feed.
The proper or axact time at which to cut
the plant after being topped, in order to ob
tain the greatest amount of saccharine matter
from its juices, was not statad; but is to be
ascertained bj observation and experience
The juices of this plant having a great ten
dency to run into the acetous fermentation,
owing, as id supposed, to the peculiar condi
tion of our atmosphere, its heat and moisture
at the time when it must be cut. they render
ing it diflicult to convert juices, at that time
int'? sugar or molasses, it was proposed to
make use ??f ?ome means in order to cure or
dry the plant when cut, that it might be stored
for subsequent use when the temperature of
the atmosphere might serve to counteract this
tendency. Might not this ol^'ect be attained
by cuiiug the plant in tho same way as m?ny
farmers cure their corn provender; by setting
it up in the held when cut, taking care that
the shocks be made of such size and in such
manner as to secure full ventilation, or the
tree circulation of air through every part.'
Ihe most important point in regard to this
subject is the adoption of some efficient mode
of converting the juices of this plant, whether
lu its green or dry state, into sugar or mo
lasso; This point was not settled, nor was it
much dwelt upon, but it is very desirable that
a large sharo of the inventive talent of our
country should be directed to the accomplish
ment of this most important object.
The debate that incidentally sprang up
the subjects of agricultural chemistry and the
animalcules or po'^g sttica of fchreaberg w is
not calculated to throw much light on the gen
eral subject or to afford an^ useful instruction
to the Society I am disposed to doubt if ag
riculture ever has or ever will derive any ma
terial benefit from either of the^ br^nchei of
study?sciences they are not. Thi's'.-Oftclosion
is founded on a few very plain reasons: 1st.
, In the cbcmical analysis of soils and of plants
i m-sny substances are formed during the pro
I cc*i that had no existence in the matter an
alized but are first formed io the crucible or
, retort. 21. The living organized body of a
plant cannot, as suoh, be subjected to ana*
ly-is Before this can be done, an important
and radical change must be effected in the
nature and character of the body. It must,
as the fir^t step towards its analysis, bo con
verted into a mass of dead, inert matter . and
then the chemical compounds are formed in tho
process and exhibited as constituents of the
plant, but which, in fact, bad no place in its
ooiy when alive Again, the living plant ab
sorb? the materials of nutriment from various
sources or substances in the soil, and the?e
materials are assimilated or acted on by its
vita energies until they are converted into
one homogeneous mass, tbo circulating fluid,
t r peculiar juice of the plant, and out of this
hixnoffeneoua mass tho organized body and its
several parts are elaborated The common
opinion that plants select particular substan
ces f? om the soil, anl that these substances,
uncharged, become a part of the body of the
plant is entirely erroneous The agrtcultu
? rut, in this connection, is accomplished when
be fnrn.'ahes his plant with food or manure in
such quk ntity and such variety as its instincts
require. -For tho reasons now given, I think
it will be acknowledged thit the deductions of
agricultural chemists are entitled to but little
regard fiom practical agricultural*
The objecti ons that arise to inferences drawn
from obaervat ons made with the microscope
are: 1st, 0-bat i'o twoobserveis have given the
same representation of the object* observed .
the account* we have of the same objects from
different observers not only contain many dis
crepancies, bu? are frequently flatly contra
dict, rj21, T 6c objects to bo observed are so
extrcmoly minute, (2 1000 of a line, or of a
tenth part ?f air ijch !) and are seen eo dimly
and imperfectly, that a large fiold or scope ;g
presented for the cxercise of the imagination;
indeed, observe rs commonly sae whatever
their imagination* prompts or suggests; and
id, I d uht net th vt many obj3cts represented
to be, ani supposec to be, animalcules are the
seed3 of plant* and minute particles of inert
matter, so that I conclude that it is not essen
tial to the interests a? agriculture that much
interest be taken in the curious descriptions
of monads by Ehranberg, or in the still mora
imaginative repr? ?nt.%tions of such objects by
