For Tin Bloomficld Timet.
? What I Know About Farming.
Mr. Editor Having rend Horace
Greeley's articles in the Tribune, with
the above title, I wish to give my opinion
through the Times, on the sanie subject :
1st. I know there is a great difference
in the natural productiveness of different
kinds of soil, and that the best land will
get poor if cropped too often without be
ing fed with some kind of fertilizer.
2nd. I know that lime is a good fer
tilizer. 3d. I know that it is better to plow
ground when it is too dry than when it is
4th. I know that farmers generally
tow their grain and plant their cum too
5th. I know that one bushel and a
peck of seed-wheat drilled into an acre
is better than two bushels.
6th. I know that two grains of corn
to a hill is better that four.
7th. I know that Horace Greeley
knows something about farming, but 1
know more about crows than he does.
He says crows are the farmer's friends,
but I know them to be his enemy.
The crow pulls up his young corn and
roasting ears, carries of his chickens and
young birds. I know that every farmer
in Perry connty will agree with me
that the crow is an enemy, and ought
to be shot.
8th. I know that small farmers can
have more leisure and pleasure, and live
more independent than big farmers, or
any other class of people.
Such is my knowlcdgo of farming,
which I have received from experience
and observation, and if any of your read
ers think they know more about farming
than I do, I would like to hear them
through the Times.

IXomlny Muffins. y'
Wash a pint of small hominy through
two or three waters, pour boiling water
on it, cover and let it soak for several
hours. Then put into a farina kettle
with half a pint of boiling water. Let
it boil until sott enough to mash ; drain
it, and mix it well with a pint of white
cornmeal or wheat flour, a little salt,
and a pint and one-half of milk in which
two tablespoonfuls of butter have been
melted. When nearly cold add four
tablespoonfuls of yeast, cover it, and set
it in a warm place until very light, with
the surface covered with bubbles.
Butter some muffin rings, set them on
a hot griddle, pour into each a portion of
the mixture and bake them brown on
both sides. Send them to table hot.
mere is no dimculty in raising Cur
rants in a clay soil, if you trench deeply
getting the ground mellow and having
it pretty rich, rrune the bushes so
to let the sun and air have full scope
After the useless wood is removed, the
best way is to keep back, the sprouts by
thumb and finger. Cultivate the soil
and mulch with some vegetable fertilizer
such as chip manure, leaves, garden weeds
grass, &c. The red dutch is the best
variety among the red, the white grape
among the white currants. But yearly
attention is necessary to good annual
crops. For the currant worm, hellebore
is a sure cure. Dust bushes with it in
the morning. One dusting will
for several weeks in dry weather.

pounds, so as to keep the pickles always

Keep the barrel in the shade, and in four
weeks take off the stone and fill to the
top, as they will settle some. Put more
salt on, head them up, and they are ready

t Those keeping horses should,
twice a week throw in a handful of salt
and ashes. Horses relish this, and it
will keep their hair short and flue. It
will prevent bots, colic, etc. A little
ground sulphur, mixed with saltand ashes
and given once in two or three weeks, is
also beneficial. All domestic animals
will be thus benefitted.
Some young ladies and gentleman who
were taking advantage of the fine sleigh
ing in the interior of this State, last win
ter in attending a donation, surprise, or
wedding party or something of the kind
were obliged to sit three on a seat. One
of the scats contained two gentlemen and
one lady. The gentlemen of course would
not allow the lady to take an exposed scut
therefore sat in the middh. As the night
was extremely cold,gentleman No. 1 quiet
ly passed his hand, by the way into the
lady's muff. As the muff was not very
capacious, the lady quietly removed one
of her hands from it. In a few moments
she felt a movement on the other side,
and found gentleman No. 2 attempting to
pass his hand into the muff on the other
side. She then ouietly drew that hand
from the muff, and allowed him to do so.
What took place in the muff afterward,
she is unable to say. I3ut each of the
gentlemen privately reported to a small
circle of friends how warmly the lady
had returned the pressure ot his hand in
the muff, while the lady as privately re
ported to her friends the magnificent sale
she had made of both gentlemen.
