[Written for the Tbabscbift by one of the most experienced farmers, gardeners and frjMytrowers in the United States.] ^•>LANT POTATOM EARLY. The experience of farmers every where is, that the best crops of pota toes are produced by planting early, or as soon as the land can be got in good condition. It is bad policy to plow land when wet ; and when the season is cold and rainy, it is better to wait for good weather to put in any crop ; but plant your potatoes ub soon as you can safely. An excellent way to man age, so as to have but little work in cultivating the crop, is to plant either in drills or hills, and cover the seed with a plow, forming a ridge over each row ; and when the potatoes have been in the ground from fifteen to twenty days they will have grown up several inches in the ground. Then take a harrow, turn it over with the teeth up, put upon it a large stone or two in front,lengthen your tracechainsas much can as yon, and go over the ground across the ridges, till the land is per fectly smooth. If some of the potato sprouts are uncovered no harm will be done. The weeds will all be destroyed, and your potatoes will come up and grow rapidly, and generally will re quire no other cultivation, but with a horse hoe or cultivator, using a mould board cultivator, or a plow, to turn up the earth a few inches high around the vines to finish up the cultivation for the season. ONION CULTURE. It is important to plant the seed arly. The red Weathersfield is the most reliable variety. The land should be made rich with stable manure every season ; and onions may be grown on the same ground for a life-time. In garden culture, the rows should be about a foot apart, and allow the onions to grow from four to six inches apart in the rows when thinned out. If your soil is liable to form a ernst on the sur face, cover the seed about a quarter of an inch deep with earth, then tread it down firmly, and cover lightly with sand, or sifted coal ashes, so as to pre vent the baking of the soil over the seed, and prevent it coming up. There is no other seed that seems to require the groan;) to be so firmly packed arowod it, to make it to vegetate as onion seed; and the back of a spade should always be used on the sand or ashes for this purpose in small plots, and a hand roller for field culture. TREES FOR A LAWN OR DOOB-YABD. What a great mistake farmers and owners of Tillage residences make, by neglecting to beautify their homes with ornamental trees and shrubs! When we travel through the country and through villages, aBd see houses located in delightfal situations, with not a tree around them, either for fruit or shade, we are compelled to ask mentally, "are the owners insane ?" Why, for every handsome shade tree around a genteel, or even a good comfortable house, cost ing perhaps a dollar originally, one hundred dollars are often obtained is the enhanced value of the place wheir it is sold. Soft and hard maples, elmB, European larch, mountain ash, weep ing do, willows, evergreens, &c., are all obtainable at a small cost, aDd they tend to render one's home attractive. GROWING HORSERADISH. Horseradish requires a rich soil, spaded or plowed deep, aod if it be somewhat moist, that is if too wet for garden vegetables, it will be very good for it. A single root may be divided into as many pieces, an inch or two long, as can be made, and have a small portion of tlecrown attached to each. For grtdfete illture, the rows should be about eighteen inohes apart, and the catlings six inches apart in the rows. As a field crop it is qaite profitable, when one has all the (hoilities to pre pare it and pnt it in jars for market, the labor of preparing being done in the season. The rows in field culture should be far enough apart to adroit a horse-cultivator. e PEACQ TREES. It has been found that banking up peach trees with earth, about a foot high around the trank, causes them, in many places, to produce good crops of fruit, as the earth keeps out the borers that infest the trees at the surface of tha ground, or a little below it. Before insect life begins to depredate, the trees should be examined, the borers cat out with a knife, scraping out every indi cation of them ; and then throw np the earth aronnd the trees, and beat it down with spade or shovel, so as to remain in its place, and in most cases the trees will be healthy, and bear large crops of fruit if the climate is suitable for peach growing. ASPARAGUS. To make an asparagus bed all that is to he done is to dig up the soil about fifteen inches deep, with a very heavy coat of well-rotted manure mixed with it ; then set the plants about eighteen inches apart, with the crowns about two inches nnder the soil. The most popular variety is "Conover's collopal;" yet some asparagus growers contend that dll varieties can be made to grow large by good cultivation. Plants one and two years old are suitable to set, but none older. When the roots are long they may be shortened in for con venient setting. In the fall cut down the Btalks even with the ground, and cover with barnyard litter, mixed with manure, as a winter protection and fer tilizer. HEAVES IN DORSES. The following is a good remedy for heaves and a cough in horses: One pound of ground ginger, one quart of salt, four ounces hard wood ashes, two ounces black pepper, and one ounce each of pounded rosin an(l saltpetre Mix thoroughly and give a tablespoon ful in the horse's feed twice a day. This oompound is beneficial in all cases of difficulty in breathing before the animal's lungs become affected. PEAS AMONG POTATOES. When potatoes are planted, if a few peas be dropped in every other bill in every second row. a fine crop of green peas will be produced, supported by the potato vines The black-eyed marrow fat are best for such planting, as they grow freely aod quickly ; and the crop of potatoes will not bo diminished in the least. Durable labels are very useful in gardens to name varieties of plants, shrubbery and fruits. They can be brought at a low price at seed stores in large towns and cities. They should be attached with fine wire, and renewed a.? often as necessary. LABELS. jutaorous. A man is a fool to try to beat the sun in rising It will be sure to rise some morning when be won't. "I have eery little respect for the ties of this world," as the rogue said when the rope was put around his neck. ; a a It has been found that in nearly every civilized oonntry the tree that bears the most fruit for market is the axle-tree. It was observed of a deceased lawyer that he bad bat few effects; to which a lady remarked, that "he had but few causes." A landlord, baviBg let all hia houses bat one, was asked if that nnlet house was his last. "Yes, last, but not leased," was his reply. Curran was once asked by one of hie brother judges : "Do you see anything ridiculous in this wig?" "Nothing but the head," was the reply. A Covington man died and they put him on ice, but he awoke in the night and yelled out: "Why don't you put some more wood in that stove ?"— De troit Press. "Were you drunk?" asked a lawyer of a witness. "Well," was the reply, "1 had been drinking so mach I could not tell whether I was sober or not." "Did von notice how splendid I went through that last reel, at the ball last night, Tom?" "Yes, and I also noticed that you kept it up all the way home." A New Hampshire man sends four teen of his children to one school, am* when they combine against the teacher he knows he can safely bet on the re sult. •'What have yon got in your carpet bag?" asked one clergyman of another, at a railroad station. "Dried tongue," the reply. He had several manu was script sermons in it. A man whose appearance indicated that he had bad a glass too much, being asked if be was a Son of Temperance, replied : "No—no relation (hie)—not even an acquaintance !" . A young man asked his bachelor uncle : -'What advice would you give to a young man who was contemplating matrimony ?" "I should advise him to keep on contemplating it " Being President is not such a fiüe thing, after all. Grant is no better off ! than the rest of us. It's no uncommon thing to hear him say, "Fish, lend me a dollar till Saturday, when I draw my .. pay. A rich contractor was holding forth upon the instability of the world "Can you account for it, sir?" he asked, turning to Sam Foote. "Well, not very clearly," he responded, "unless it built by contract." An old bachelor says that giving the ballot to women would not amount to anything practically,because they would keep denying they were old enough to vote until they got to be too old to take any interest in politics. An enthusiastic admirer of Shakes peare, who claimed that no other poet had ever been able to equal him, after exhausting praise, exclaimed : "I tell you that Shakespeare climbed Parnassus to a height never before reached, and then'fymvjp the to elder after himT' Will aoaae of the boys speak up for the Detroit Free Press, which asks : "Is it billiards that are 'a healthy ex ercise,' or is it the act of walking from the table to the bar, throwing the head back and murmuring'Um-um-um?

A yonng lady engaged to bo married, aod getting sick of her bargain, ap plied to a friend to help her nntie the knot before it was too lute. "Oh, cer tainly," he replied, "it's very easy to untie it now, while it is only a beau knot. »I "Now, my boy," said the committee man, "if I had a mince pie and should give two-twelfths of it to John, two twelfths to Isaac, two-twelfths to Harry, and shonld take half the pie myself, what would there be left?" "The plate !" Bhouted the boy. A goose that sees another drink will do the same, though he is not thisty. The custom of drinking for company, when drinking is indispensable and prejudicial, seems to be a oase of the same kind, and to pnt a man, feathers only excepted, npon a footing with a goose. A young lady dressed in mach false hair was warbling at the piano, and when her mother summoned her to as sist in some household duties, her rosy lips opened pontingly and she snapped out, "Oh, do it yourself!" And then she went on singing: "Kind words can never die. II A blacksmith brought up his son, to whom he was very severe, to his trade.

"Horsewhip it, father," ex claimed the boy, "if that don't harden it, I don't know what will. A celebrated French preacher, in a sermon on the duties of wives, said : "I see in this congregation a woman who has been guilty of disobedience to her husband, and in order to point her ont I will fling my breviary at her head."
