MONDAY EVENING, MAY 8, 1871 American Insiltute Formers' Club. NOTES OF DISCUSSION—EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS, «C. At the last meeting Hon. George Geddes, of Onondaga, was present; and the way ha did cut and slash among the theorists with his sharp, practical sense, was re freshing to hear. If there is one thiDg more than any other that wo like to know belongs to man, is common sense; and there is nothing that breeds it so surely as hard work on a farm, or dealing with ma terial facts anywhere. Take, for instance, the hackneyed old theme of whether One HUNDRED B USIIF.LS OF corn can be produced per acre, which waa being dis cussed wben wo last entered the club room. W. Wilson, of Coatsville, Pa., had written tho club that he doubted the statements of the Professor of Foreign Marble in his history of the Worth Farm concerning tho production of 110 bushels per acre, and adds:—"ln this vicinity I cannot find any ono who credits it. I have lived the most of my life in Brandy wine, and know where aro many farms equalling Mr. Worth's, if not so large, and you cannot find a man who will say ho grew 110 bushels, shelled corn, 50 lbs., to the acre. I have found (by measurement) that it takes four stalks to the hill, three and a half feet each way, and two largo ears to tho stalk, to reach Dr. Trimble's statements. However rich the land, corn will not mature so thickly planted, ears being too much shaded." The arraigned professor was rehearsing tho testimony in his possession confirmatory of his state ments. He sat down exhausted and dis gusted at the incredulity of men, when Mr. Geddes startled tho club with the conundrum : that 110 bushels of corn per acre was raised on the Worth farm, does he moan 110 bushels of merchantable corn ? JiV, sir; I warrant not. He means green corn, nfit for market, and which will shrink rom 15 to 26 per cent, before it ctn bo fely marketable ; for if marketed as easurod, green, it will rot in a very short ime. Now lot us talk sense. And when c say that we grow 110 bushels of corn. et us mean that wo sold 110 bushels of orn produced on one aero. I have grown good deal of corn, but 1 never produced 00 bushel? of marketable corn on one ere, nor ever saw a crop that would yield lat amount." Thereat there was "silinco n the court," until Mr. Fuller, surnamtd The Doubter" by the Big-Coru-Cropists, e-expressed his skepticism concerning octrines, aud said he could produce more msbels of shelled pop-corn por rcre than ie big-corn farmers could of their big ared corn—that the small kernelcd corn bat would produce two to six ears on each talk would yield more than tho larger orts of the West, that rarely matured more than one ear to the stalk. Deep vs. Shallow Pi/jwino.— Grow ng out of this Worth farm discussion ame up this old hobgoblin again, Mr. Yilson Btating that he reads a half dozen agricultural journals which frequently •try to show that deep plowing and sub oiling is the very thing for corn as well as all other crops" ; but that statement in the Worth farm story, that shallow plowing iroduced such wonderful results, has given fir. Wilson "much thought and concern," and he asks with evident anxiety, "What s the use of getting agricultural papers when they confuse you? I appeal to the club. What are wo farmers to be ieve and practice when we see such con iradictory statements ?" Prof. Squelch advised bim to believe nothing, try all things and' hold fast to that which Is good ; and the said professor meu tally added that any man who fails to use judgment and common sense in ac cepting or rejecting, using or abusing, any recommendations made in the papers ought to be put iv a straight jicket long enough to enable him to think tho matter over. These people who denounce agricultural journals because what ono man does iv ouo place aud profits by doing, will uot answer for another man, in another place and un der different circumstances, to do, are kin dred to tbe woman who informed her hus band one morning that she had discovered that all the beans he had planted in the garden were growing wrong end up, and she had taken tho trouble to reverse their position before breakfast, and came to him for a kiss of gratitude as a reward for her services, gently suggesting that ho must be more careful how he planted his beans next time. that deep plowing cluy soils for corn did not produeu as good crops as shallow plow ing. He had tried it—had turned over clay eight inches deep aud didn't get s good com aa when it was turned but three inches. It made Squelch's hair stand straight up with indignation. Such noti sense! "Cannot men uuderstand," h said to us, "that when we talk of dee plowing we do not necessarily talk of in verting the soil to a great depth '? Don you know, sir," turning to a neighbor §at if you tarn up cold clay i ng, eight inches deep, and tha never seen sunlight befoie that you cannot expect seeds to germinal and plants to grow iv it as they will in th surface soil that has been warmed ant civilized by suu influence and" is full o organic matter? And dou't you know sir, that you can turn over but three iucho of clay soil in spring, aud yet plow twelve to eighteen indies deep by follow ing the surface plow with a subsoiler; an that such practice is just what the advo cates of deep plowing, especially of heav soils, in spring, advocate?" "The no dies!" we heard him mutter, as he rollet over the quid ot tobacco io his mouth am expectorated half-way across the root at the Commander's polished uuderstani ings. Turning agniu to his neighbor, he said: "If y«" » re S" iu g to turn over stiff soils- deep, do it as early is the fall as you can. Don't wait until spring. Do it when the soil ia dry, and let the rains, snows and frosts act upon it ; add your manure to it, and iv nine cases out of you grow and tbu nature of the soil. The advocates of deep plowing io not plow soil deep that does not need it ; nor do they plow soil deep that dues need it, at aDy time of yes)f; nor do they always invert soil deeply when ihey plow,!.ep. You want to reuieuiber that, aud that t their nature aud requirements just a? a builder should know tlie nature of the woods be puts into a building. Vvo fi : a'ly changed our seat to get away from tliti garrulous professor. _____ TIIK BTATK JOURNAL. Tbb Statb Joukhsl enters upon a new ca reer, under auspices which promise porma nence and increased usefulness. This paper will be Eepublican. The organ of no wing or clique, it will aim to represent the policy of the National party; to bnild u-p a healthy National sentiment, and inspire love of tho whole country. It will not be the vehicle of personal detrac tion, nor be used to get its pets into oflice, nor to keep others out The safety of all is in the triumph of the cause | and to secure it, all must labor jealously and devotedly, and take their chances in the general result. Aiming to treat every member of its own party generously, it will be 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 be as prompt to expose corruption and imbecility in ita own party as in another. We shall advocate all measures to advance the public good, originating in our own party or outside. Thero are vital questions enough between va and the opposition without seeking issues where all good men should stand on common ground. Believing popular Education to bo the one crying want of our State and of the country, we shall give large space to its advocacy. To educate thoroughly all the children of the State should bo tho supreme and paramount work of legislation. To this sacred task wo consecrate our paper. We shall plead the cause ofthe little ones who have no voice; and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of Vir»ii.ia in whatever can make her great and glorious. Tbe financial condition of the country, and especially ofthe 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. We are for such a revenue system as will preserve the public credit without imposing UDdue burdens upon the people. Realizing tho vaat importance of mechanica and manufacturing industry, we shall labor heartily for the development of these interests, we Ehall give accurate and detailed informa tion of our vast natural wealth in mines, .for ests, water-powers and fisheries. Believing in tho "harmony of interests," wo shall endeavor to show how fully each is de pendent upon the prosperity of all; that labor and capital, employer and employco, should be allies and friends, enriching each other by fraternal co-operation. Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a Vir; ginia farm, which we leave lovingly and ro« 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 '"rge space to Agriculture and Horticul ture. 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 are thousands of noble youDg men and women in the State full of grand capacity, now dormant and wasting. Tbe old Commonwealth is sounding the drum-beat to duty. Let them shake off the night-mare of conservatism and old traditions, and march bravely to tho work ot this new day. So shall they make the future of Virginia worthy of the past, and themselves worthy of a great an cestry 1 REPUBLICAN NAHONAL PLATFORM- aud tn prevent the people of each Statos from being remitted to a Btate of anarchy. 2 The guaranty liy Congress of equal Billlrage to all loyal men at lhe South waa demanded Ly every consideration of public safety, of gratitude, and ot iimtice aud must be maintained; while the question of suffrage ill all the loyal Statea properly belongs to tie peoplo of tiiuae States. 3 We denounce all forma of repudiation aa a ua tloiia.l crime; and tlie national honor requires the payment of tho public indebtedness iv the utter most good faith to all creditors at homo aud abroad, uot iiuly according to letter, but the Bpint ot the lawa under which it was contracted. 4 It ie due to tbo labor ofthe nation that tax* tlnnshould be equalized,and reduced aa rapidly as the national faith will porrult. 5 The national debt, coutiacted aa it haa boon lor the'nresei vatiou of the Onion lor all tinio to come, should be extended over a Mr period for redemption uini it is tho duty of Congress to roduco the rato o iiitoreat thnrouii, whenever it can be houeally done 0 '1 hat tho beat policy to diminish our burden o debt ia to ao improve our credit that capitaliata wi seek to loau us money at lower ratea of interest tha we now pay, aud must continue to pay so long as r pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, la threa ened or suspected. ,« . t ,j 7 The Government of the Uuited Statos Bhonld administered with the strictest economy; and t corruptions which have been bo shamefully, nurse and f'steied by Andrew Johnson call loudly tor rad Ca s r \Ve in-ofountlly doploro tho untimely and trag death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the acceaaio to tho Preaideu-y of Andrew Johnson, who haa act treacherously to the people who elected him and I cause be waa pledged to support; who has usurp. hiith legislative and judicial luuutions; who has i fused to execute the laws; who haa used hia tig office to induce other officers to ignore uud viola the liwa- who has employed hia executive powe to render insecure the property, tlio peace, liber and life of tho citizen ; who haa abused the pardi ing power; who has denounced the national legtl ture as unconstitutional; who haa persistently and corruptly resisted, by every means in hla power, every proper attempt at tbo reconstruction ol tbe tutea lately in rebellion; who has perverted the public patrunago into an engine of wholi sale cor ruption ■ aud who haa been justly impeached lor 9 The doctriuo of Orcat Britain aud other Eu- 1 roo'eau powers, that becaiue a man 10 once a subject • be I. allays so, must be restated at every hazaid by the United State., a. a relic of feudal tunes, uot au thorized by the law. of ratious.and at war wilh our national honor and independence.

Sydnor .o'king the Watt plow and 8. Gravea the Dixie— both of whom handled them with masterly ak I! urd jhe plow, entered were the Dixie two horao right and left-hand plows, and the »att two-horse left hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam of the Dixie r'ght hand broke In two and wsb laid aaide tho contsat being narrowed to tho Watt left hand and Dixie left-hand. The sol' first selected was a Btubble loam without soil ; but as the plows were new, aud did uot turn lv conaequence of the roagbnefia of the castints, after a short trial it was decided to take tbem into another field where the soil was a well-trodden, tenacioua clay, . ith a timo thy Bod cove.cd with vegetation and wiih straw. The plows hero performed their work admirably, cutting and urniug clear without choking. As the Dixie waa a new comer, aa the contest waxed .arm most of tho judges took hold of It lo test personally ite practical working. While there is no intention to do injuatice to auy, as neither party had agent or representative preßont, aud loth pliws old well, yet the trial, with the award of the ju'ges, Ib deemed of sufficient lihiortaiice to the in terest of agiicultuie to justify Its publication.
