Deep vi Shallow Plowing.
The agricultural papers of the country
have for years been discussing the ques
tions of deep and shallow plowing and tbe
level or ridging process of cultivation.—
The misfortune is that many of the opin
ions advanced come from men with no ex
perience in farming, and their ideas are
beautiful in theory, but prove false in
practice; and ag3in, the mistake is made
that their plans are susceptible of general
adoption, when only particular localities
are suitable for their application.
Upon our river low grounds and rich al
luvial bottom lauds, deep plowing will
answer and no doubt prove of great advan
tage, but practice proves that upon onr
tbin highland farms, where the soil is
about as thick as a case knife, deep plow
ing does not answer. New grounds, just
cleared of timber, when ploughed never do
well ; whereas, if the soil is scraped np
into a hill about tho siza of a man's hat
they produce finely, and all after cultiva
tion and applications of manures remain in
lor of the land whore the skinning pro
s was pursued at first.
Isk all old farmers about the truth of
i. All lands should be bedded or
jed for corn, potatoes, peas, beels,
:ermelons, and in fact all crops except
has are sown broadcast. The reason
plain that in ridging land the soil is
thrown together ; and auolher and better
lison is that the young plants, being
sed upon an eminence, do not suffer
m too much wet weather, and gither
ire warmth from the Blanting rays of
i sun, when in spring the ground is too
d and too wet.
ijjThe after process should be to level with
harrows aud cultivators until by the last
working the land is nearly level. This is
uniting the two systems of level and ridg
ing cultivation, which practice will prove
is the best about Green Bay. Any farmer
may try both plans, side by side, and bo
convinced which is the better.
No water should bo permitted to remain
upon lands or ruu over it, except what
falls from the clouds, and by tunning fur
rows by a water level there will bono gul
lies or wash places. 11. t. q
Specific manures for Gardens.
There are some manures which act like
a charm upon certain vegetables which d>
not benefit others, indeed, sometimes seem
to do harm. It is therefore very import
ant for those who are acquainted with this
fact, which is the result of many years of
observation and experiments. First, if the
garden has a gravelly, porous substratum,
manuring iv the full is not desirable, be
cause the winter and spring snows and rain
carry off the essence of tbemauure to a depth
beyond the reach of tho roots oi any vege
table. Such a soil as this should be ma
nured in the spring on the plowed ground,
and the manure mingled with the earth
by tho harrow. This sort of soil is best
adapted to fruit trees ; they will grow upon
it better than a clay ; the texture may be
reduced lo any state which may be de
aired.
Secondly, for pens, a sprinkling of ashes
on each side, about an iuch from the seed,
it all peas require, taking it for granted
the soil has been manured, as above re
ferred to, with mixed manures.
Thirdly, for potatoes, vegetablo manures
are best; for we have known flesh animal
manure to injure the crop materially, and
if this is not the o.ise in every instance,
the flavor of the potato is injured. A
mixtuio of plaster, ashes, and wood earth
in equal proportions, we have known to
produce fine crops, without the aid of any
other manure. What the potato needs is
equality of temperature ; this is best ef
fected by putting over them about eigh
teen or twenty inches of straw, or plant
ing them uuder an old sod will luvo the
same effect.
Fourthly, onions should have hen-houso
manure, forked in around the roots.
Fifthly, for asparagus, plenty of salts.
No fear of having too much even if an
inch thick over the bed, no harm would
bo done. There should always be enough
to destroy the growth of grass, weeds, and
anything that grows to the detriment of
the asparagus.
Sixthly, for lettuce, any stimulating
commercial manure is best.
Seventhly, for tomatoes, hog-pen ma
nure, and soap-suds will make them per- !
feet. l
Eightly, for cabbage, the same as let
tuce.
Ninthly, for beets, salts when they are
planted, and a little when they are grow
ing, is all they require if tho soil is rich.
Tenth, for strawberries, soap-suds acts
like a charm, but animal manures are gen
erally injurious.
Eleventh, for cucumbers, any good fer
tilizer put iv the earth five or six inches
from the seed. If the stripped bug should
make its appearance, use plaster freely over
tbe hills and plants.
Too 'Wet or too Dry.
"The farmers of Colorado are complain
ing tbat it is too dry, while the farmers in
Kansas growl becauso it is too wot."—Den
ver Tribune.
"And that's the trouble out there on the
treeless plains of Kansas and Colorado,
tbat it is generally too dry or too wet for
the farmers. We havo hoard of several
instances of Minnesota fanners removing
to the too much puffed plains of Kausas,
who, after losing their all there, were glad
to get back to Minnesota, to start the world
anew, and never again think of seeking a
more southern climate."
We clip the above paragraph from a
Minnesota real estate paper, as confirming
what we have repeatedly said about the
West. We have traveled over overy part
of that country from tlie Mississippi river
to the Itocky mouoUius, and we are con
vinced, from our own observation, that a
very large majority of those who settle in
any of those States or Territories would
gladly get back to their old homes if they
One can see more misery and discomfort
among the new settlers there in one day's
ride, than he would in Virginia in a
year's steady travel. Thousauds and tens
of thousand ot credulous foreigners have
carried their money and energies to those
treeless plains, aud there, deprivi d of every
comfort or enjoyment, dragged out a cheer
less existence. The same piper from
which we make the pJ tract above also I as
the following tuii,..:ra 1.1I1:
"The arable lands .1 Hit: West tertuttnle
at longitude 97 iimr about ono baudred
sonri river."
This we also know to be correct. What, I
' then, must be the condition of the vast j
multitudes of people who are annually I
I enticed to buy and settle upon those deso- I
late plains ?
Potato Sugar.—Tho agricultural jour- I
nals begin to talk of a new industry, the
manufacture of sugar from sweet potatoes. I
The average product of a bushel of pota
toes—the yam variety beiug preferred—is I
said to be over two gallons, ant! as the I
averago yield per acre on poor, saudy Boil I
is from a hundred and fifty to a hundred I
and eighty bushels, it follows that the pro- I
duct will be from three hundred to three
hundred and fifty gallons of syrup. This I
syrup, moreover, is said to surpass that of I
the best, and even that of the sorghum in I
delicacy of flavor nnd in nearly all the I
other qualities which should commend it I
for uso at tho table. The residium, after I
the juice is extracted, is pronounced a I
valuable article of food for either man or I
boast. In the Southern States, whero yams I
grow almost spontaneously, the manufac- I
ture of potato syrup may be very proflla- I
bly carried on, and if it has the effect of
cheapening sugar, the consumers of sac- I
cbarine at the North can have no serious
objection.
Ground Bones.—A correspondent asks,
For what crops are ground bones most
valuable?"
There is scarcely any crop that is not
lenefitted by phosphate of lime, tho chief
constituent of botie. When dried, bones
consist of about a third part of organic
matter, and two-thirds inorganic. The
irsl is in the form of gelautino, chiefly,
nd that you know is highly nitrogenous
Tha inorganic part is mostly phosphate of I
lime, tto I hat you have in bones both or- I
nolo and mineral manures, the oue class I
furnishing the soil without ammonia, and I
the other phosphoric acid.
Perhaps they ure most valuablo for the I
THE STATE JOUKNAI*.
| Thk State Jodunal enters upon a new ca
reer, under auspices which promiso perma
nence and increased usefulness.
This paper will be Republican. The organ
of no wing or cliquo, it will aim to represent
the policy of the National party; to build u-p
a healthy National sentiment, and inspire love
of the whole country.
It will not be the'vehicle of personal detrac
tion, nor be used to get its pets into office, nor
to keep others out. Tbe safety of all is in the
triumph of the cause ; and to secure it, all
must labor zealously and devotedly, and take
their chances in tho general result.
Aiming to treat every member of its own
psrty generously, it will bo just to its oppo
nents. It will discuss all questions of public
interest fairly and temperately. Asserting the
right earnestly and resolutely, and bating no
jot or tittle of the truth which it is called to de
clare, it will aim to "speak the truth in love."
It will commend genius, patriotism and vir
tue everywhere, and bo as prompt to expose
corruption and imbecility in its own party as
in another.
We shall advocate all measures to advance
toe public good, originating in our own party j
or outside. There are vilal questions enough
between us and tho opposition without seeking |
issues where all good men should stand on
common ground.
Believing popular Education to be tho one
cryiog want of our State and of the country,
we shall give large space to its advocacy.' To
educate thoroughly all tbe children of tbe
State should be tho supreme and paramount
work of legislation. To this sacred task we
consecrate our paper. Wo shall plead the
causo ofthe little ones who have no voice;
and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of
Virginia in whatever can make her great and
glorious. j
The financial condition of tho country, and
especially of the South, will not be neglected.
We advocate a financial policy which will
bring back again to the South more than its
old prosperity. We are for the encourage
ment of a varied home industry. We are for
Free Banking, under a system which makes
money absolutely safe and accessible to busi
ness men at living rates. Wo are for such a
revenue system as will preserve the public
credit without imposing undue burdens upon
the people.
Realizing the vast importance of mechanical
and manufacturing industry, we shall labor
heartily for tbe development of tbeso interests,
we shall give accurate and detailed informa
tion of our vast natural wealth in mines, for
ests, water-powers and fisheries.
Believing in the "harmony of interests," we
shall endeavor to show how fully each is de
pendent upon the prosperity of all; tbat labor
and capital, employer and employee, should
be allies and friends, enriching each other by
fraternal co-operation.
Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a VirJ
ginia farm, which we leave lovingly and re
luctantly for awhile, we have learned some
thing of what wide and varied knowledge,
what patience, economy and administrative
ability it takes to make a farmer. We shall
give large space Io Agriculture and Horticnl-
In conclusion, we will say that we will unite
cordially and earnestly with men of all parties
to remove every obstacle to the moral, intel
lectual and physical progress of our State and
nation. There ure thousands of noble young
men and women in the State full of grand
capacity, now dormant and wasting. The old
Commonwealth is sounding tbe drum-beat to
duty. Let tbem shake off the night-mare of
conservatism and old traditions, and march
bravely to the work ol this new day. So shall
they make the future of Virginia worthy of
the past, and themselves worthy of a great an
