The llalk, formed into reeds filled with a white pulp, from their ftrength towards the root, were forced to have been cut about two feet from the lurface of the foil.—The draw, or rather reed, Mr. Dorm got cut with a machine, and lerved to horfes as a fubftitute for oats, on which they greedily fed, anti fettmed to thrive on it as well as on their ufual food. The general produce of the Wheat, refpefting the Seed, was ten bar rels wanting fix pounds ; on grinding the proportion of Bran, refpebling the flour, was three pounds of the forw.er, to one barrel of the latter. at B LANK BONDS—For sale at the Mir. rur Printing office und Book store.
