That done, the soil removed ia f.rming the furrows, and little more obtained on the opposite side is re turned. This process will be found to form a ridge s .mc inches higher t .an ih2 level cf the adjacent land. As it is not desirable ia our cli mate, where heal an 1 drought (rath ihan e xcess of moisture, as in Eng land, from whence the practice is de rived) prevails, we backdown to the ridges until they are nearly level, and which brings the seed about to be sown rear the manure, so important to stimulate the young plant. Every thing being row ready for sowing, with a Mathews' drill, which is made to open the furrow, deposit the seed, close the furrow, and roll in the seed if necessary, we proceed to sow The drili should be adjusted to sow not less than two pounds of seed and one-half feet apart not that so much see 1 is necessary, if any considerable percentage vegitatcs, and escapes the (ly, the scorching sun, and other unfavorable Influences. It is probable that if two ounces of seed could be evenly distributed, each grain germi nate, and finally succeed, there would be a sufficient number of plants to the acre; but it would be a very unwise procedure to stint the seed to (avc (for the present moment only) the pocket The English, to whom we look for instruction in root culture, ue much more than two pounds per arre, but the turnip has been so gen erally grown in their country for gen orations, that tbe " fly," fed anJ pam pered, has become a most formidable pest; so much so that great difficulty is sometimes found in securing n " stand. " If the sowing, which we have just described, should by any acci dent have failed, pass along the ridg ts a spike tooth harrow to destroy any weed seeds which may have sprouted, and re-sow as before. If. from the time lost, it may be deemed too late to perfect a crop of rutu bagas with certainty, it may be bet ter to make the re-sowing with flat turnips, which mature iu a shorter season. Supposiug the first sowing a suc cess, allow the plants to reach tbo rough or second leaf, then proceed j thu. Taking a light two-inch steel J hoe in hand, and standing so as to bring a corner of the hoc ia an ob lique direction with respect to the line of plants, and near to them, the operator walks backward, drawing the hoe gently, end slightly skimming the surface of the soil, and with it all young weeds which may have sprung up cotemporary with the crop; re turning the opposite side of the row er drill is aken, thus leaving only a narrow line of turnip plants nearly free from weeds. After a few days, when they have grown somewhat stronger, and arc too rank for the fly to injure seriously, they may be "clumped." which is performed bv taking a sharp, light steel hoc of suitable size, say two inches wide, and standing facing the row, cut crosswise, so as to leave clumps cf plants at intervals of four to five inches At first the operator will -ut timiily, learing to destroy too many; but in a little while he will have gaiued courage, and proceed with increasing speed. It is surpri sing wiih what celerity such work may be performed by an expert, which any one may becoma with an hour's practice. We have boya who can pass along a row, cutting as they go, at half the usual walking speed. When the plants left in clunips have fully recovered from the disturbance which is unavoidable, and again stand errect, the process of "sin gling" commences this is simply pulling out with the Cnger and thumb snd cast ing aside all but the most promising plant in each group or clump. After the elapse of a few days when the selected plants fcavo be come upright end self-sustaining, a very shallow furrow .may be cat from each side, the earth thus re moved meeting in a ridge between the rows. If the weather is damp they may stand a few days, each day adding greatly to their strength; but if the weather be hot and dry, it is better to proceed at oice with the hoeing, which done, the ridge of earth is to be leveled down by a spike tooth barrow, or, in its absence, a cultivator with well worn teeth, taking care not to cast the-carth tip- This process of ' vlowing from tLc 1 iti j nd culiiva-' ; i r, it lmmpci i an- v ciltT io ret ui " us soil, will need to be rejicd bcvcr - 1 al times during tbo season ot prowtL; indeed it ihiv be practiced with J great rurantage so J005 as the space j bet ween the rows is not obstructed !br foliage, on each repetition insert- iiJi-iw rWr.rr than l.olorc than before. jm " i ITl, il.o nrin ip!'l ( lr.riV c t n n it len gor rth stand j' daily increasing in vi and bulk, until the time arrives for placing it in winter nuarters in the latitude cf Philadelphia not later than the 26th of November.

Their rooms should bo entirely separate from the stable, so that they may not always be ready to siip in, whenever a door is opened; and that the vermin which infest poultry may not reach horses and cattle. It is a well known fact tha fowls of all kinds frequently drop a very sordid, offensive, clammy, vicious odor; and when allowed to go on the haymow, in the feeding room, or anywhere ia the barn, they damage the fodder then we are wont to sup pose. We would almost a.s soon al low fowls to live ia the kitchen, to hop on the dinner table while we are eating, and to roost on our beadstead, as to allow them to have free access to the horse stable and barn. Some horses arc always afraid of fowls: and when one enters the man- ! ger. or rack, the timid horses will im- mediately surrender their entire right however hungry they may be, to these lawless marauders. And after they have scratched ovc: their feed with their feul feet, and smeared a portion of it with their filthy crrop pings, a horse will be hungry indeed before he will cat his mess. Many a hungry horse has been deprived of his feeding of grain by a lot of these bold, pa'ltnacious robbers that have learned when and where to fill their empty crops with the feed of a jaded horse. Let gates and bars exclude fowls and pigeons from the doors and wind i ws of all horse stables. AI.m Mllklnfr. Next to Laving jrood cows is the importance of Laving milking well and property done. Cows iou!d be put into some secure place to milk, cither in a barn or f-Led cxpres.-Iy for that purjioje, with a good ventilation for wann v. eitLer. TLe practice of milking cows running looe in the yard is inconvenient and disagreeable; Dcit'jer can it be done as cleanly as in stanchions; nor will they do as well out-of-doors, where they are the the greater part of the season teased by flies. There should be a? much uniformity in the hours of milking as possible. Ueforc commencing to miik the udder should be entirely clean, and each milker should milk the same through the season end ia the same cows order. Harsh treatment sLoulJ never be tcle:ated;ftr cows that r.not weii lreatcl wi.i not give so great a flow of miik as when used rrcntlv. Rratbrr Joanliinn. This term, as npplied to the United States, originated in a playful remark onVarddngton. The incident is this: When General Washington, after be ing appniate-1 commander of the army nf the ilevoluiiuii.iry War, went to MasFaehusvtta to organize it, he found a great want of ammunition and other means of defense, and on the occasion it seemed that no means could be devised for the necessary safety. Jonathan Thumbull, the el der, was then Governor of the State of Connecticut; and the General, placing the greatest reliance on Lis excellency's judgment, remarked, "We must consult Brother Jonathan on the subject." TLe General did so and the Governor was successful , in supplying many of the wants of the army; and thenceforward, whoa diffi culties arose, and the army was spread over tbe country, it became a byplirasc. "We must consult Broth er Jonathan;"' and the came now Las become designation for the whole countrv, as John Dull Las for Eng land. " The Story ol a (.ood limy. IJYM. QVAP. This boy wa3 a good boy.

When this boy was a. year oi ler h heard it said that "truth was mighty and must prevail," and that a bov whi nlwav3 spoke the truth would surely make a great and good man. He commenced to tell the truth. -On; day he got his father's best razor out and hacked it on a gent came blazes had bomc flnJ aited lo in thaL CLristonher that.

"Here your poor mother is working like a ilave, and you are around swil- Ming soda wp'.er! I don't think you 11 swill any more, I don't! Come over my right knee." And she agitated him in the live icst manner. That night as he turn ed on his downy strawbed the boy I made up his mind that honesty didn't pa-, end ho resolved to cheat tne whole world if he could. When Christopher was a half year older he came across the injunction, "He kind to the poor." lie did not know whether it would pay or not, but he set about it. lie knew of a poor woman who sadly needed a spring bonnet, and took over his mother's, along with a few other things, including his father's second paircf boots, his own Sunday shoes and so on. lie went around feeling very big hearted until the old gent wanted to go to lhe. lodge one night and then it came out. 'f- "Gin a war mv boots, eh: inqu cd the father; "lugged your mother's best bonnet off, cb? Well. I don't think you'll remember the poor very much later to-night!" And he pounded Christopher Co lumbus with a pump ban lie until the boy fainted away, and never made a thorough job of it. They fooled the boy once more, lie heard a rich man say that every body should "make hay while the sun shone." So when there came a suny day he went out, took his fath ers scythe down from the plum tree and went to making hay. He broke the scythe, cut down tbe tulips and hacked his sister in the heel, and his mother came out and led him around by the hair and bounced bim until he almost went into a decline. They couldn't bamboozle this boy after that. He grew wicked every day of his life, and before his eighteenth birth dny arrived he was hung for murder. He said he didn't care a huckleberry about it, and died with out making the usual Fourth of July oration. Mot iieri. Mothers you stand at tLc fountain, with the liihtcst trace of your finger on the yielding soil; you can give a direction to the infant stream, you can send a gilding down through ver dant fields and flowry lawns, impar ting new fertility and beauty.aud anan contributing its strength to propel the complicated machinery of indus try, or you can send it dashing, foam ing ovei precipices, to join with oth er impetous, headlong streams, carry ing devestation in their course; or you cm suffer it to roll its slugprish way into some stagnant pool aflor ding refuge for loathsome reptiles, and poisoning the atmosphere with its pestilential vapors. In infancy and afhome the deepest and most lasting impressions are made; your children may have had able and faithful instructors, but there are ma ny lessons of practical wisdom which are not taught in schools. The mind of your child is constantly busy it will be learning a lesson of you when you least think of it.

Hereditary lalltimrr. I'arer.ts aware of their own tend ency to infirmities of body and mind should be unceasing in their vigilance over their children, so as to prevent j predisposition from becoming a habit. r or exampie, a child or parents prone to epilepsy, apoplexy or insanity, and who displays precocity of mind and great vivacity of feeling, should be kept from all irritants, cither in shape of food, or drinks, or applica i tions to the outer senses, from strong j appeals to the feelings, and be en- couraged to bodily exerciso rather than to book-tastes, to hasten the development of the intclectnal facul ties beyond their strength. TLe very early activity of an organ, the consequence of its premature devel opment, so far from being a reason for tasking it to greater exercise, should, on tbe contrary, be the sign for dismising the supply of stimuli cr agents capable of still further excit ing it. But however good and per fect the home discipline, it cannot be successful without the hearty co-op eration of the sensible school instruc tor, who not only ought to under stand human nature, and know the parents by their cLildrcn, but be as able to teach the full use of the limbs, and Low to wear a graceful carriage, as to lead the pupils through all the steps of a mathematical problem.

Hence the whole history of Kussian conquest in the cast is the history of a fight for the possession of certain water courses the con quering party securing them by aa ever-lengthening chain cf fortified posts, and gradually pushing back the conquered farther and farther in to the desert till no alternative re mained but starvation or submission. "Fioeks and herds must drink," said a Russian general to n.e years ago, who had himself practiced what he preached with terrible effect. "Flocks and herds must drink, and so must men ; cut them off from water and you have them." And this method is still looked to by Rus sia as a 'sure weapon for tne wcrk that remains to be done. More than once during my journey from Tash kent toward the Hockhariotc frontier, I remarked to the officers whom 1 met on the way, "You will have ea sy work with Rokhara when you do invade it," and the answer was al ways the same, "We shall never need to invade it ; we have only to cut off the water (which runs from us to them) and they must give in without firing a shot."' Defective I'liio. A correspondent of the Ciiicinuatti Commercial gives the following prac tical answer to the question : "The quastion is often asked, 'What is a defective flue?' It is a flue that has open, unpiastered joints in the brick work through which (lames or sparks can pass into the spaces between the floors and ceil ings, or ia which soot can accumu late and take fire. If the joints In the bricks of tbe flue are carefully cov ered with mortar, no joints built into or touching it, and no floor or wood work allowed to come in contact with it, the owner cf such a flew can re- tire to sleep with a mind at case oa .1 . c . r. n : 1 Uiai score, rsaiu uues iu jiuu.-cs uuut by contract arc exceptions, as the the contractor sub lets to the brick layer, and he does not feel responsi- i blc to the owner, who gets a ucfec tive flue unless he stands by and bosses the job. If he does nut he must chance .it. I have had seme eight or ten flues built for ovens heat ed to a white heat, but have always stood bv to see that every joint was well closed, as the first flu; I used fired the building. The last one I built was so dangerous passing through a Lay-Lit that, rather than trust it to others, I buiit it myself; and although it made the loft unbear ably Lot, I felt perfectly safe, and used it for three years constantly. Another cause cf frequent fires is the careless use of matches. A porter in a store sent into a dark cellar cr upper story goes with a lot of match es to strike v.Lile Lunting what Le wants; the match is thrown down : if it goes out, good ; if not, and there is straw, paper, shavings, moss or rags lying around loose; presto! there you Lave a spontaneous combustion. Always take a lantern, and let it be a globe lanters, fed with lard or sperm oil. In looking back through a busi ness life in Cincinnati of tLirty years, I find that Cre originated eight times on my premises, all, however, got under without calling out the engines. rOnlv onee was I burned cut. thanks to a neighbor. Once, defective flue, twice, defective stove pipes; ence, pan of Lot ashes left on the floor over night (servant girl), once, Lot ashcs ia an tut Louse (servant girl ; onee wood cole spilled on a floor (servant girl); twice, matches used and thrown on shavings. to 31alic Io(l II::!It r. A New York lad" of large experi ence in dairy management gives the following directions fr making good butter : In the first place, the milk must be brought into the dairy Louse clean; see that the milkers do their part nicely, for you cannot, v.-ith all the cleaning and scalding of pails and pans, make a delicious, nutty-flavorcd quality of butter, if straws, soaked in impurity, adhere to tb: udder, and from thence fall into the milk iai!. The ncx take out degrees. move is to cjol t r.i no aimnai teat, t i ion: ''.'J i he::, i! y ;t k. ;i oi oave i ii., yjn'c ie s neyr fit) de ueptn t!i:it order to i.h.g the milk i!;e.'v is io ivij vi v i'iX-d , 111 s. 1 r.-rt th.' mi I'l ll.'C soon! i be si 1! the en-Hi have set ii it ty inches, ai c"im,. rr at tv. inches and ttvea id the result was the ie mini is not comed.' two inches is as deep as milk should be set for all all the cream to rise be fore the milk sours. And the b. si time to skim the cream is just as you caa detect a change or slight add, which is generally in from "thirty to thirty-sis hours- The reason is, the butter is sweeter and better in color, and you get more from tha same quantity of milk than you can if the cream remains on the milk until it La3 become quite thick and sour. 1 churn every day ia warm weather, and cream should never be kept long er than three days in a cool place. The temperature for churning with me is CO degrees ia summer and C2 to fi-1 degrees in winter. I think that the best churn is the Eureka. V.'c are doing the churning now ia from one to two minutes, and in winter we have not at any time exceeded four minutes. I thoroughly rinse my but ter, but handle gently with a wooden ladle ; then salt with the best dairy barrel salt, one ounce of suit to a pound oi butter ; mix ia tLorougLly, being careful to pres.' gently so as not to break tLc grain ; then let it stand to become solid, tLcn work again until dry, but never until it is oily. If your cream is too warm, surround your cream pail with cold water or with ice if you have it, stir ring the cream until it is brought round with hot water. Do not put cold or hot water ia the cream to get the required temperature. My but ter bring "Orange County Pail" prices, invariably, in the New York market ; MUctllaneoiu. !
