Conrupondmct of the Middletown Transcript.
Mr. Editor Our Farmers' Club of the Fifth Election District of Kent county, Md. is progress ing, and increasing in incm»>crR; and the farm ers are taking a great deal of interest i the meet ings, and 1 can also add, are taking more than usual interest in their farm operations, making peri men ts with fertilizers, and testing new machinery. We are regularly supplied with Reports from the Department of Agriculture at Washington, and have received a variety of •seeds, which having hecn distributed among the members, we expect to report favorably of them in the future. There are now four farmers' clubs in our county, and on May 3d we are to meet by delegates for the purpose of forming a county organization. Our subjects for discussion arc varied. On last Thursday evening the sub ject was, " what variety of com is best for gen eral crops, the proper way growing lute potatoes, and wlmt is right und what is wrong." The subjects were well dis cussed, and the latter port of the question brought out a good debate, and the question whs a good one, and gave an opportunity for pointing out some evils in our farm operations, our social and business relations. Motto—do unto others as you would have others do unto you. The question was held over for further discussion. Wheat in our section is looking well, and the usual breadth of acres was sown last fall. In connection with the wheat crop of 1870, I would here remark that there will be but little money to pay out of it for fertilizers. Grass is looking well, and more than usual will be mown this year. Oats not sown largely on account of the corn-ground being sown in wheat. A very large crop of corn will ho planted, and some of our furmers have been planting for some time, whilst others are waiting for warmer weather. The prospect for fruit of all kinds is good. Ap ples and pears are showing fora full bloom. At this time we are feasting on fresh shad, which are just now very plenty and selling at fair prices, and then too wc can get them in our part of the w'orld, alive and kicking. Our county has only to be visited to tic appreciated. With good crops this year, even at reduced prices, our farmers will begin to feel relief, ns farm operations this year are being conducted at much less expense than for some years hack.
