The Culture of Celery.
There arc but few farmers who at tempt to grow celery, yet it is not aditHcult matter; and it is an excellent vegetable, not only as a sort of condi ment, like pickle, cole-slaw, &e., but it is nourishing food. And every far mer's wife who has a taste for setting a handsome table, either for her own fam ily or when she lias company, will al ways be glad to have a handsome clislf of celery as a table ornament, if it was not touched as food. Where there is a market for it, it is coiisidered-as good a paying crop as almost any one that can lie grown with so little trouble as this garden vegetable. The lhirtieidtiirist savs: "Nearly all the Celery sold in the New York markets is grown as a sec ond crop. The ground is first heavily manured in Spring for crops of early vabbages, beets or onions, which are sold off usually by the first week in July. The ground is then cleared off, plowed, and harrowed, and at once planted with Celery, if the //round is moist eniiin/li to ren ire it. The Celery i« planted in rows four feet apart for e.irly, and three feet for the late crop— plants 111 each case six inches apart —all on the surface of the ground. This is what is technically termed the 'flat' system. Never manure specially for Celery unless the crop preceding it has been neglected, and then manure over t : ie whole surface, as any one of expe rience knows that the feeding-ground for the roots is not confined to six inches 011 each side of the plants, but that they will meet in the center of four-feet rows; hence the absurdity of manuring only in the rows. The culture of the crop by the 'flat' system is very simple. In a week or so after'planting, the ground is run through by the triangu lar hoc harrow; this is continued at intervals often or twelve days thro, lgh o it the scasi.il to keep down the weeds .and stir the ground. A man and horse van cultivate four acres per day. or something near 120,0 0 roots, which, by the trench system, would require all to be hoed by band, involving at least twenty times the amount of manual labor. As soon as the Celery gets to be 1"> •or IK inches high, instead of the hoe harrow use a plough to throw a slight furrow to the Celery; then the ling" or straightening-up process is gone through with, and a heavier fur rnvis then thrown against it. It is Jlien allowed to remain eight or ten days to extend the hearts, when the banking up process is finished by the spade. This isjjie practice with what is sold in September, October, and No vember. That which is put away to preserve for "Winter use is done the same with in every respect, except that it. is not banked up by the spado nor Iflanclied in any way before being put awav. The crop being all straightened up, begin to put away what you want for n<c through December on the first dry diy after the 2f>th of October (dates are o" great importance for localities of the same temperature), and so continue until you finish, which may be about the 1 "ith of November; any later, in our -district, is dangerous for frost; earlier, the Celery will whiten tooquiek, and rot. The best manner of preserving is to choose a sandy, oh at least a dry spot, in an open exposure, stretch a line, and dig a trench or drain 10 or 12 inches wide, and of the depth of the Celery to be put away. It is then dug up, the earth well shaken from the roots, and packed perpeiiitii-utiirlf/ iu the trench or drain,. just tight enough not to bruise the steins. No earth is put to the roots; the damp soil of the trench gives mois ture enough. You simply dig a trench si ml pack it full of Celery, and let it stand until there is danger of hard freez ing; then throw strawy stable manure on each side, leaving a strip of the green leaves in the center uncovered. This gives ventilation, and prevents too rapid ripening. This may be done the first of December, and by the middle the whole may be covered six or eight inches deep over the sides and top. It can be drawn any time during Winter for use or marker. The near contact of the stalks with the manure while thus stored does not affect the Celery any more than it does while growing before it is taken up, any more than it <loes potatoes or any other vegetable that wo eat. About topping tlic plants when trans planting, a largo grower of Celery says; " I mow ott'with the scythe "some throe inches of the tops of Celery twice "in the season before transplanting."— Tribune. Curing Skins with the Hair on. Tin 1 Irish Farmers Gazette gives the following receipt for curing skins with the hair on: "Steep the skins in water, and wash them well till they are soft ami clean; they are then scraped and thinned on the fleshy side with a fleshing-knife, and laid in fermented loam for a few days, after which they are taken out and washed. A solution of salt and lime is then made, and the fleshy side rapidly and well rubbed with it, till that side is well bleached; after which make a paste to the consistency of hon ey, of the lime and salt solution, by add ing wheateu flour and yolks of eggs, and spread this paste on the fleshy side; after this they are stretched and dried, and then rubbed dry with puui iee stone." We do not understand what is meant by fermented 10..m," miles* it i* l >a- my earth mixed with anything that will cause fermentation. The Indians al ways use brains to soften deer-skins, which they dry in smoke. Deer, calf, I and sheen-skins should he dressed by j farmers for home use.

The exportation of wheat from San Francisco to New York, Europe, Aus tralia, and other parts, and which c«n tinucs, is likely to provide a demand for our surplus in California. A San Francisco paper estimates that this de mand will equal 70,000 bushels before the next crop will come into market. Another fact in connection with the future market in San Francisco, should he considered. The weather litis been so dry in California, so far, the present winter, that but very little wheat has been sown. If there is no change in the weather there, California must look to us, another year, for wheat for home consumption. These tacts ad monish our fanners to soir all the irhcat tin '/ mi) the present winter. It they con suit their own interests, tin's irdf lie if one. Wheat and Hour are advancing in Sail Francisco.

The low price of freight has induced a large transportation of flour to San Francisco from this port. We are in formed that the tlour thus sent is a su perior article. There is at this time a very large amount of tlour awaiting shipment. We are glad that there is a market for it even at the present pri ces.

Wendell Phillips, in his late eulogy upon The odore Parker, said ; "The very last page thov busy fin gers ever wrote tells the child s story, than which, he says, 4 no event in my life has made so deep and lasting an in*-1 pression on me.' 4 A little boy in pet ticoats, in my fourth year, my father sent me from the field home.' A sp< t ted tortoise, iu shallow water, at the foot of a rhodora, caught bis sight, and lie lifted his stick to strike it when a voice within said, 4 lt is wrong. ' I stood with lifted stie'e, in wonder at the new emotion till the rhodora and tortoise vanished from my sight. I hastened home, and asked my mother what it was that told me that it was wrong. Wiping a tear with her apron, and tak ing me in her arms, she said: 4 Some men call it conscience; but I prefer to call it the voice of (.Sod in the soul of mail.

CONSULTATION, by letter or otherwise, FBBK. CONSTITUTIONAL DEBILITY AND SEMINAL WEAKNESS.-—Dr. Young addresses those who have injured themselves by private and improper indulgence in that secret and solitary habit which ruins the body and mind, unfitting them either for business or society, with the view to impress upon their minds, before it is too late, the übsolute ne cessity of skillful medical treatment, and by a direct course of reasoning to show that although we may not he ungrateful for the health given us, that it cannot be sported or trifled with without loss; and when once engendered cannot be regain ed by mere abstinence from folly, or urgent and strong display of courage. It may nut be generally understood by the great majority of sufferers from mental depressions, that these dull and heavy sensations experienced in the head and about the chest, accompanied by feelings of anxiety and foreboding, arise from a disorgan ization of the important functions of the body.— Such, however, is the fact, and in latter years to such an extent has this been carried that our In sane Asylums are becoming filled with patients who owe to this cause alone their suffering. The study and practice Of years lias shown conclusively that to the weakness of the genital organs, super induced far too often by self-abuse, which has be come so apparent in the face ; and where once our fathers stood giants in muscular force, the men ot to-dav are dwarfs in comdarison. The >ymptoms of the disease may,be faint to-dug. but so surely as you experience that weakness in the buck and limbs, dimness of sight, nervousness, derangement of the digestive functions, and gen eral debility, so surely will follow the harrowing mental prostration too awful to contemplate, and which will end only as the last breath comes strug gling. gasping from the breast of the expiring vic tim. There is something noble in dying when the good has been fought, but what mnii can view a grave tilled by one whose life dribbled out in pollution, without a feeling of disgust. Do not hesitate, hoping that time will eradicate what it only strengthens, but call at once at my office, with the full assurance ot a speedy and per manent cure. Let no sense of fit he shame deter you. but save yourself from the awful effects of this dread disorder, and regain the full strength <>'' your manhood.
