HsJ.DICjilnsoii's Peim-Tan Address, CCiSO 1KD SOOT MAT CO ELSEWHERE. Sir. President I desire to say but few words ca foreign or manufactured man ures, as the class cf men I am addressing jis not one likely to be caught oa a hook tailed with guano at sixty dollars per ton, bowerer much it may do for some south ern lands or worn-out Lon-Island soils. There, I fncy, it only enriches the land, as a neighbor of mine gets rich two or three times , a yeap-th'? whole expense of Lis o atlay in his case not exceeding- a peck of rye, and that not well distilled. And because some farmer has accomplish ed much ia Ireland frosi soot, there is good commoa sense here enough to know that the soot made from burning bogs is very unlike ours, and that there is suffi cient material for renovating the soil c: Yates and the surrounding counties, ca our own farms, except plaster, the expense of which is so trifling we can use it freely. BIS TirWS 05 TrR5IPS. The turnip crop, either the Norfolk, Swede, or ruta tagas, are exhausting crops in this country. Yet they furnish a large amount cf food, and if fed to cat tle cr sheep on the same land, will enrich instead of impoverishing it; but take them erf f cr several years' in succession, and the soil will be very much reduced. En flihmen sav thev draw much of their f . i t. - ncHjriihment from the atmosrhere. It is not so ia this region, many of the scien tific farmers of the day to the contrary notwithstanding-. England has. a soft moist atmosphere, ivhile oars at the sea ron they need care z.nd nourishment, is hot and dry. There is, indeed, no more mistaken notion prevailing- than that tur nips do lest in wet weather. They re quire moisture but not wet ; they hare a long tap-root, and no plant cultivated is more easily drowned or injured by excess of water. AGKICCLTCRiL PAPEES A2CD 3JACHISIJ1T. The machinery on exhibition is exceed ingly good, and I hardly know from which the agriculturist has profited most for the last eiht or ten years, the agri cultural journals cf die day, or the labor saving machinery that has been invented and put in operat:cn. Many, farmers fancy that if they Lave a mowing machine and a reaper, it is all that is necessary ; but let me say here that these implements are only so many more reasons for in creasing the care and taxing the ingenui ty of the husbandman, for they neither run themselves, nor will they permit the unthoughtf ul or . the wayfaring man to profit much by their use. CARE iXD ECOSOMT ESSENTIAL- There has never been a time when it was more important that the husbandman should do his work well, and look c!osely to his seed of every descripticn, than the present, since the time cf the b?ack death. The seasons have been so deranged from what they formerly were, from warm to cold, and from wet to dry, that more care and protection seem to be every where required. On your soil where wheat un til the. last few years grew luxuriantly, and the failure of a crop was almost un known, you could afford to sow lime broadcast at the rate of fifty or a- hundred bushels to the acre. Ia the present un certainty of the crop you cannot afford so p of use an application, however lime is indispensable in the growth of wheat. Most cf your ether crops are not benefit ed by its use, as is the case in portions of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I ask you to bear with me while I tell you of s. much cheaper and equally beneficial mode of applying it: a half pint of tar is suffi cient to put a coat all over every kernel of a bushel, sufacient to fasten a bushel cf lime to that quantity of wheat, which would be as beneficial zs fifty or aa hun dred sowed broadcast, as the one bushel would be brought into immediate contact with the wheat. He who will take the trouble to test my pracrice for three years, by civing both a fair trial, will follow my advice thereafter, I wiil give all the particulars to prepare the seed for sowing as there is no seed that a farmer can af ford to sow cr plant without first tarring and then applying the very thing cr things his soil lacks. I wo-uld just as soon think farming without tajr, lime and plaster, as I would of keeping house without arni ca, camphor and stickicg-salve. THI MODE Or lr?LTISC Til, LIME, &.C. It is very simple, yet there is a 'know how' to everything. I will tell you how 3oa can put a coat of tar over all kinds of seed as evenly as a painter could put a coat of paint over a board with his brush. An iron kettle is the best to mix the tar and wa:er. Have sufneient boiling water to cut the tar; mix it with hoc water; then pour in sufneient cold to make it near blood neat. Have sufneient water to stir what ever grain you put in, that the water and tar may come into contact with every part and particle ; it will then be coated evenly and is ready to be taken out. Shovel it into a basket for economy the basket may be pla ced ever a tight barrel to catch iie water ; as soon as it is done draining throw into a tight box, where yon can mix and put on whatever, your soil lacks. If wheat or barley, yon need not fear to ap ply lime and salt. If oats, com cr buck wheat, plaster , and salt. And on the soils of Y'atea county it would be benefi cial to all of the above-named grains, to sleep in strong brine twernight. Every species cf grass seed I sow with a heavy coat, and fai-tea as much plaster as paisi- lie, which draws moisture in a dry season and prevents rotting in an excessively wet cne, and I never fail to hare my rrass I seed take welL Ana to me wneaMarm ers let m say that the importance this process for their clover is two-fold; it not only dispenses with the necessity cf sowing plaster on the wneat to enke the clover catch, but the quantity that is fas tened to the clover does not come into con tact with the wheat sufficiently to give it the rapid growth rendering it liable to rust. HJSTS OX SAtTHrG STOCX. 4 Mr. President, believing that I can use Professor Backley ta advantage for a few moments, I will again call your attention to what he says: "Bat when the Hen. Senator says that the grass growing next the ocean contains salt, and that that growing in western New York does not, and farther that the chemist canuot detect salt in the former, but that his ox can. and hence his ox knows more about the composition of the grass than the chemist he talks about things beyond his ken. We know the chemist can detect the salt." The argus-eyed Professor knows the che mist could detect the salt in the grass. I gave him a fair trial and he failed. What I said then I will rep-eat, as L regarded it important information to farmers, and even Mr. Buckley might profit by it. (was it not too simple and plain for a ..Profes sor's understanding) if he has oxen, cat tle and sheep to look after, and profit by their being correctly salted. The Philadelphia meadows axe much unlike the pasture land of England and Ireland, or other pasture lands lying with in the influence of salt waier, for on lhein the grass on which the cattle feed, is al ready so seasoned with salt that they will not eat it in other forms. The meadows of which I speak, are those which have been made by dykeing, and the salt wa ter comes sutnciently near the surface for the grass to partake cf it; for on pasture equally near the Delaware, upon the up lands, the cattle anl sheep will eat salt. I regard those meadows as the best fat tening land ia the world. I have seen a bullock that was fattened there without grain that had two hundred and fifty pounds of gut fat. , I said that I pastured my cattle many years since on the Philadelphia meadows, and after they had been there one week, they would not touch salt. The pasture seemed to be seasoned just to their taste, while in Yates county, or on my pasture, they ould eat a handful in each week more in wet than in dry weather. Most of the grasses in loth places being cf the same kind, and to all appearances preci sely identical, I cut and cured on the Phi ladelphia meadows as much as I could bring home in my valise, and then cut and cured the same kinds at home, labeling them so that each might be distinguished. I then carried both to a celebrated pro fessor of chemistry, and told him there was as much difference ia the grass as there would be if one had grown on hard water and the other on soft water land, but did not tell him that such was the fact; that I wanted a thorough analysis in order to determine which contained the best fattening qualities. After a fair trial, he told me he could find no differ ence; I then told him what the difference was, and I remarked neither he nor my self knew as much about grass as my ox; and from that -time to this I have been trying to learn from my cattle their wants, by consulting their tastes as to what they would eat or drink, and I do not hesitaie to say here ia the presence of practical farmers, that I have not only learned from my ox, but from sheep, more as to their wants and how to treat them, than from all the chemists, professors of agricultural colleges, royal or state nurse ries,and government trial fields, oa earth. And I am quite anxious to impart a few of the most important of the truths deri ved from the observation cf the instincts of animals. These instincts are much stronger with wild than domesticated ani mals, which latter are looked after by man, while the former select their food with much more care. Thirty-five years since, Red Jacket, the child of nature, told me how to salt deer, or in other words, how to make a deer-lick, by bor ing holes in a log and patting salt in them; and he Temarked that they were much founder of fish brine, and would leave their licks made of salt, and feed wholly on those made cf fish brine. I tested this thoroughly and found it to be true. SAI.TI5G SHEEP WITH FIJ.H BRUTE. I then tested it thoroughly with sheep for many years, and say to you that a flock of fite Saxony ewes in a dry season, will make their lambs at least four pounds heavier each, by having fish brine than common salt, while the common ewe will not increase the weight cf her lamb an ounce; nor do I believe the Bakewell, Southdown or Leicestershire would in crease them. The reason is, the fine Sa xony sheep, Ike the goat, gives very rich milk, but a small quantity of it not suf ficient for the rrowth of her Jamb. Lak in-y the fish brine best, she eats more salt than she otherwise would her appe tite for water is increased, and the more she dnnk3 the greater xhi quantity of milk she yields, and this gives greater growth to her lamb, n mist large ccarse wooled ewes' milk not being so rich, but in larger quantity, in many cases it would be injurious to pursue the course in ques ; tion. The cow can by the same process be Erode is increase her milk and not her butter. Too much salt 13 injurious in fattening, but it should be regularly fed, and more ia warm thaa ia ciid weather.

Marriage for SiioTr. To the question often asked of young men as to why they do not marry, we sometimes hear the reply, 'I am not able to support a wife.' In one case ia three perhaps, this may be so ; but a3 a general thing, the true reply would be, I am not able to support the style in which I think my wife ought to live. In this again, we see a f ilse view of marriage a look ing to an appearance in the world instead of a union with a loving woman for her own sake. There are very few men, of industriou3 habits, who cannot maintain a wife, if they are willing to live econcmi- ! cally, and without reference to the opinion of the world. Tr.p ptmi pttiI k thp ! are not content to begin life humbly, tofor breastworks, surely no cne should retire together into an obscure position, '-censure the ladies for making the same and together work their way in the world i use of "Alabama siik." .Ve5.

A journal notices a new prima dGsna, thus: 4Her voice is as soft as a roll cf velvet, and as tender as a pair of slop shop pantaloons."

New Ycrl; In dependent thus describes the domain cf the D-ke cf Devcnshire : : "The domain cf the Daks cf Errca shire would cover cne of cur largest coun ties. The psrk imrrredkitel? surreurding the palace is eleven miles in circumfer ence," and contains 3, CCD acres. The principal garden for rege:atle3, fruits, green-houses, &ct J3 twenty-five acres. There are thirty green-houses, each firm fifty lo seventy-fire feet bng. We went into three or four containing nothing but pine-apples, ripe; ethers contain - nothing but melons ' and cucumbers. One peach tree on the glass wall measured fifty-one feet in width and fifteen feet hirrh, and bears one thousand peaches. It is the largest in the world. The grape-houses five or six ia all are 6) feet long; and sv.ch grapes ! We saw pine-apples weighing ten or fifteen pounds each. One green-house had only fig3, another enly mushrooms. B-t what shall be said of the great conservatory, filled wkh every variety of tropical plants ? It is cne cf the wonders of the world. It covers an acre cf ground, is 100 feet high, cf oral shape, and cost S-500,000. It is heated by steam and hot water pipes, which ia all are six miles ia length. The apparatus consumes six hundred tons of coal in a year. We saw banana trees twenty feet hisrh, with clusters cf fruit, sugar-cane, jj coflee-trees, bamboo, and in short, every tropical plant that can be named. Several of the palm-trees are from fifty to sixty feet high. The smoke cf the immense fire underneath is carried ia pipes under ground to an outlet ia the woods.
