Ma rine Zands.mao. S. Ma. Earroz-I had intended next, when I concluded my last number, to take up the subject of rotation of crops; but as there may be more than one " Late Beginner" among your readers, I have concluded first to finish the subject of manures by saying a few words on the most profitable way of applying them to our lands. But before I begin, I wish to make my acknowledgments to "Late Beginner," yourself, and others, for your kind appreciation of my labors. This is some encouragemeut, and I think I began to need it. In old countries, where lands are dear, and rent and taxes high, the most ap. proved mode of applying manures is to scatter them broadcast; but there the whole farm is manured once in every ro tation. In Laurens, and in fact through out the cotton region, I think the best practice is to strew them in the drill fur row for cotton. They then lie undisturb ed, by our frequent plowings, and are not so much exposed to the action of the sun and winds, as they would be if applied broadcast. They are, therefore, not so liable to waste, or to be washed away. In our latitude the summers are too short to mature cotton fully; and by putting the manure in the drill we concentrate its energies upon the young plant, and give it a vigorous start-and every practical planter knows the importance of giving it a bold start. A friend of mine, living high up in Spartanburg, and whose lands are rich, informed me that he could not raise cot ton, except by manuring highly, and that then he could raise one thousand pounds per acre. This is a fine illustration of the effects of manure in pushing it on to early maturity. I commonly lay off my lands with a scooter, drop the manure in the furrow, and cover with two twister furrows. Ma ny object to this, as covering the manure too shallow, and leaving it liable to be disturbed in opening the bed for planting -they prefer opening a deep furrow with a shovel. I am persuaded they are mista. ken in this. I wish to mix the manure with the earth that is in contact with the seed, in order that the young plant, when it cbmes up, may feel its influence at once, which it cannot do when it lies deep below. Again-the rains, as they descend in the soil, dissolve the salts in the manure and carry them down, and of course be low the reach of the young roots. It is trud the roots, as they extend, may reach it at last; but we lose, in a.great degree, its early warming and invigorating effects, which, in the cool weather of Spring, cot ton so much needs. So much for the iode. I prefer giving the compost ma niure to my cotton; First, because it is the most important crop: Second, be cause cotton needs it more than any other erop to push it on to early maturity, be fore the frosts of autumn ; 'Third, be cause I think it less liable to " burn" cot ton than cornmi dry weather; Fourth, be cause wheat is more uncertain and not so viluable a crop ; and lastly, which may not be so certain, because I believe it im proves land more than with corn, or per haps with any other crop. Many prefer putting their manures on the poor, galled spots, where there is but little or no soil. I believe this to be not the best economy. In lands exhausted by cropping, and not washed away, there is often much inert humus or mould; here manure does good, not only by the food it furnises directly to the plant, but indirectly, by decomposing the inert hu mus, and thus supplying additional nour ishment. Besides, these soils are more porous,. are wanner, and retain moisture better- than such spots as have their top soil washed awvay. I would 'say that the amount of manure that would add one hundred pounds to the product of the galled spots, wvould add two hundred pounds to the product of soils that are merely exhausted-not washed awvay. If this lbe so, any one can cypher the differ. ence of profits for himself. Still, I would not discourage reclaiming galled spots near the homestead. They offend the eye, they are near the compost heap, and less distance is travelled to work them and gather their products. One wvord more and I have done. " Late Beginner" says, "in his neighbor hood may be seen a number of pyramids in honor of Franklin," &c. I rejoice to hear it; but they must be demolished, and, like all earthly honors, vanish. Now, in all this month, iis the time to put your compost manures into the cotton beds. Let it be done evenly and carefully ; and though those monuments, to my honor, may so soon pass away, yet, in my ram bles in the summer, I trust and believe I shall see them revived in the coming cot ton crop, waving its rich foliage and star like blooms, to delight the eye. and glad den the heart of others as wvell as of -FnEMKN. WoRK FOr hiABCH.-This should be a busy month to the farmer, Mianures if not already carted out where likely to be wanted, should be attended to. Place your manure in convenient sized heaps, at proper distances apart, and cover the tops of the heaps slightly with charcoal dust, pulverulent muck or peat, or aslight coating of plaster of paris. Either of these will prevent, in part at least, the ammonia escaping with the first warm day. Prepare ground as early as possi ble, and spread no more manure at the time thani can be plowed in within a fewv hours. If you cannot obtain any of the above named articles to cover the manure heaps until required for use, throw a few shovels full of soil over each heap. [Working Farmer. RECEIPTFOEGLANDRs AND COLDs IN H oasss-Take one table spoonfull of ros in, one table spoonfull of vitrol, twvo table spoonsfull of salt, four table spoonsfull of hard wood-asheu, pulverize and mix well teetcr r one dose. By giving a horse two doses a week for four weeks, I never knew it to fail of effecting a cure in the most obstinate cases of glanders, and is equally effectual in colds.

EDITORs.-I wish to know on what kind of soils buckwheat will grow the best I And whether it is not a great exhauster of the soil I and whether it can be profitably turned under as a green crop? It being objected to by some, that the acid which it contains tends to render the soil unproductive. L. KING. Soils rather light than otherwise are the best for buckwheat. On heavy clay soils it rarely succeeds. From 30 to 40 bushels an acre are not an uncommon crop on soils adapted to its culture, and properly prepared. Buckwheat is not a greater exhauster of the soil than other plants which yield the same amount of straw and grain when removed from the field. A few years since we saw a heavy crop of buckwheat on a piece of land from which the owner assured us he had for thirteen years in succession taken a similar crop. This was in one of the southwestern counties of the state; the soil a light yellow loam. Buckwheat is extensively used in Germany and some other parts of Europe as a crop for a green dressing, and is highly prized. In England, turneps fed on the ground are preferred, as in that way food for animals and the dressing of the soil is at once effected. It is very probable that on a soil divested of alkalies, too liberal dres. sing of any green plant might prove hurt ful at first; but such instances must be very rare, and a small quantity of ashes or lime strewed over the field would pre vent the possibility of such a result. [Maine Farmer. A GOOD WHIlEws.-Half a bushel of unslacked lime, slack it with boiling water, covered during the process. Strain it, and add a peck of salt, dissolved in warm water, three pounds of ground rice boiled to a thin paste, put in boiling hot; half a pound of powdered Spanish whiting; and a pound of clear glue dissolved in warm water. Mix, and let it stand several days. Let it be put on with a paint or whitewash brush, as hot as possible. Another mode-Make Whitewash in the usual way, except that the water used should have two double handfulls of salt dissolved in each pailful of the hot water used. Then stir in a double hand of fine sand, to make it thick like cream. Put on hot. Coloring matter can be added to suit fancy. GOOD BTtER IN WINTER.-We often hear the complaint that butter made in winter is poor. Ours was so for several 'seasons. It was very slowv in coming, and frothy, white, sometimes bitter; while butter made from the same kind of milk in the warm seasons was good. I devised many plans for improvement, such as throwing in salt, warm milk, scalding cream, &c., but to no purpose. At length I scalded my milk when brought from the cow, afterwards setting it in either a cold or warm place, as was most conven ient. I mean, I communicated sufliient heat to destroy the effect which frosty feed has in autumn, or dry feed in winter, upon it. Since which time we have made, wvith fifteen minutes' churning, purer, sweeter, and more yellow butter than we have ever made in summer--and some times from the frozen cream gradually warmed. And were it not that the in crease of manufactures, the pursuit of fashion, and other causes combined, ren. der holding hands in a dairy room now-a days very scarce, I should be at the trouble of scalding my milk before set ting it during the summer as well as in the winter; for surely butter in this way possesses a delicious richness and dryness i'hich can not be found in any other. -Cultivator. TRANsPLANTING EvERGREENS.-We have urged the importance of always, when practicable, removing a large mass of earth on the roots, and where this can not be done, to keep even the surface of the denued roots constantly moist till they are again replaced in the earth. This is corroborated by a statement from G. Jacques, who transplanted in the spring fifty two young hemlocks (a very difficult tree to remove successfully) on a rainy day, all of which are alive and growing. -Albany Cultivator. ON DANCING.-Dr. Fitch, in one of his lecturcs on the uses of the lungs, and on the mode of preserving health, says: Dancing is the king and queen of in door exercise. It is suitable for all clas ses, and ages, both sexes. It is a most elegant and most exhilarating exercise. It is one of the most ancient, and one of the most salutary. I do not speak if it as a dissipation, but as an exhilarating and valuable exercise. Among the exercises it is second to none, it is extremely suitable for the sedentary, for invalids, and for consumptives. I have known one of the worst cases of consumption I ever knew cured by dancing alone, prac tised daily for many months. The cure was permanent and complete. It is deplorable that dancing and dan. cing amusements of nearly all kinds should have fallen under the ban of the elkrgy, and should be preached against as sinful. It is doubtful whether the morals of mankimd are benefitted by forbidding all amusements, and it is most certain the health of thousands is sacrificed by it. Who are those that sink earliest into consumption among ladies ? Allow me to say, it is those who take least exercise, and refrain from all amusements, who, at school, at church, at home, are marked as models; whose looks are demure, whose wvalks are slow, and whose con versation is always on serious subjuets.

Johnson Hooper, editor of the Chambers Tribune, we think, is responsible for it: Court was in session, and amid the multiplicity of business which crowded upon him in term time, he stopped at the store of a beautiful widow on the sunny side of thirty, who, by the way, had often bestowed melting glances on the sheriff aforesaid. He was admitted, and soon the widow appeared; the confusion and delight which the arrival of her visitor had occasioned, set off to a greater ad vantage than usual the captivating charms of the widow M-. Her cheeks bore the beautiful blended tints of the apple blossom, her lips resembled rosebuds, upon which the morning dew yet linger ed, and her eyes like the quivers of Cu pid, the ilances of love and tenderness with which they were filled, resembling arrows, and only wanting a fine beau, (pardon the pun,) to do full execution. Af ter a few common-place remarks, " Mad am," said the matter-of-fact sheriff, "I have an attachment for you." A deep blush mantled the cheek of the widow. With downcast eyes, whose glances were centered upon her beautiful feet, half-concealed by her flowing drape ry, gently patting the floor, she with equal ardor replied: " Sir, the attachment is reciprocal." For some time the sheriff maintained an astonished silence-at last he said: "Madam, will you proceed to court ?" "Pioceed to court!" replied the lady with a merry laugh; then, shaking her beautiful head, she added, " No sir, though this is leap year, I will not take advan tage of the license therein granted to my sex and therefore greatly prefer that you should proceed to court." " But, madam, the Justice is waiting." " Let him wait, I do not care to hurry'in matters in such an unbecoming manner; and besides, sir, when the ceremony is performed, I wish you to understand that I prefer a minister to a justice of the peace." " Madam," said he, rising from his chair with dignity, "there has been a great mis take here; my language has been misun derstood; the attachment of which I speak was issued from the office of Es quire C-; it commands me to bring you before him, to answer to a contemi.t of court, in disobeying a subpwna in the case of Smith vs Jones. A GENTLE IIINT.-A sportsman, who, during the shooting season, had gone to pass a week with a friend in the coun try, on the strength of a general invita tion, soon found, by a gentle hint, that he. would have done better to wait for a special one. "I saw some beautiful scenery," wvas the visitor's first remark, " as I came to day by the upper road." " Yes, and you will see still finer," was the reply, " as you go back to-morrow by the lower one." ABsENCE OF MIND.-The most recent case is that of an old smoker and stuff taiker, who puffs and snuffs at the same time. He threw a pinch of stuff into his mouth the other day and stuck a cigar in his nose. He did not discover his mis take until he had run the lighted end into his nostril and burnt the interior of his proboscis A BRAVE young offlcer lost his leg at the battle of Buena Vista. After ho had sufflered amputation with the greatest courage, he saw his servant crying, or pretending to cry, in one corner of the room. " Jack," said he, " none of your, hypocritical tears, you idle dog; youi know you are very glad, for you will have only one boot to clean." CLERICAL WI.-An old gentleman of eighty-four, havinig taken to the altar a young damsel of about sixteen, the clergyman said to him-" The font is at the other end of the Church." " What do I want with the font?" said the old gentleman. "0! I beg your pardon," said the clerical wit, " I thought you had brought this child to be christened." " WHAT are you writing there my boy," asked a fond parent the other day of his hopeful son and heir, a shaver of ten years. " My composition, thir." "What is the subject 1" " International law, thir," replied the youthful Grotius; but really I shall he unable to concentrate my ideas, and give them a logical relation, it I am constantly interrupted in this manner by irrevelent inquiries." " MR. SurIrr," said a little fellow the other evening to his sister's beau, " I wish you wouldn't praise sister Nancy's eyes any more. You've made her so proud now that she won't speak to cousin Lau ra, nor mind mother the least bit." A LOIN of mutton wvas on the table, and the gentleman opposite took the carver in his hand. "Shall I cut it saddlewvise ?" quoth he. " You had better cut it bridle wie," replied his neighbor, " for then we shall all have a better chance to get a bit in our mouths !" QUITE LIKELY.-A man of much ve racity, recently told us that there is a man ina Kentucky, wvhose feet are so large that he has to pull his pantaloons on over his head. WE learn from a late California paper, the important fact, that in one District of a considerable population, that there is not one married man in its limits.

This beautiful and cnvenient application of the myterious powers of GALVANISM and MAGNET I., hn, been pronounced by distinguished physi. cians, both in Ewurope andl the United States, to be the most raeluahte newdiciral discouery of the .4ge. Dr. CHRISTIE'S GALVANIC BELT and MAGNETIC FLUID, Is usedl wvith t'ne most petatct and certain success in all cases of GENERAL DEBILITY, trengthening the weakened body, giving tone to the various organs, and invigornting the entire system.

TURE of the SPINE, HIP COMPLAINT, DISEASES of the KIDNEYS, DKFICIENCY OF NERVOUS and PIYSICAL ENERGY, and all NERVOUS DISEASFS, which complaints arise from one simple canto -namely, A Derangement of the Nervous System. Qg- In NERVOUS COMPLAINTS Drugs and Medicines increase the disease, for they weaken the vital energies of the already prostrated system ; while tinder the strengthening, life-giving. vitalizing influence of Galvanism. as applied by this beautl. ful and wonderfil discovery, the exhausted patient and weakened sufaferer is restored to former health, strength, elasticity and vignr. The great peculiarity and excellence of Dr. Christie's Galvanic Curatives, consists, an the fact that they arrest and cure disease by autiward application, in place of the usual mode of drugging and physicking the patient, till exhausted Nature sink hopelessly under the infliction. They strengithen the whole system, equalize the cir culatiw of the blood, proaate the secretions, and never do the slightest injury unvder any eircamstanters. Since their introduction in the United States, only three yebrs since, morre than 60,000 Persons Including all ages, classes and conditions, among which were a large number of ladles, who are pecu liarly subject to Nervous Complaints, have been BNTIREIY AND PERMANENTY OUREED, when all hope of relief had been given up, anal every thing else been tried in vain ! To Illustrate the use of the G ALVANIC BEL11, supponse the case of a person anlicted with that bane of civilization, DYSPEPSIA, or any other Chronic or Nervous Disordler. In ordinary cases, stimulants are taken, which, by their action on the nerves and mucles of the stomach, afford t'emporaryj relief, hut which leave the patient in a lower state, and with irured faculties, after the action thus excited has ceased. Now compare this with the effect resultIng from the aplication of the GA LVANIC BELT. Take a yp csuS'erer, even in thewrs smt~oms o using the Ma~gnetic Fiuid as directed. In a short period the insensible perspirationi will act on the positive element of the Belt, thereby causing a Gal vanic circulation which will pass on to the negative, and thence back again to the positive, thus keeping up a continuonus Galvanic circulation throughout the system. Thus the moat severe cases of D'aSPEPSIA are PF.RMANF.NTLY CURED. A FEW DAYS IS OFTEN AMPLY SUFFICIENT TO ERADICATE THE DISEASE OF YEARS.

LANDIS, A CLERGYMAN of New Jersey, of distinguished attainments and ex ated reputation Sosrav, New Jersey, July 12, 1848. Da. A. H. Caaawava.-Dear Sir: You wash to know of me what has been the result in my own case, of the aplication of TIlE GALVANIC BELT AND NECK. LACE. M\y reply is as follows: For about twoenty years I had been suffering from Dyspepsia. Every year the symptoms became worse, nor couald I obtain permantent reliel from any course of' medical treatment whatever. About fourteen years sice, in consquence of frequent exposure to thae weather, in the discharge of my pastoral duties, I be. came subject to a severe Chronic Rheumatism, which for year after year, caused me indescribable anguish Farther: in the winter of '46 and '46, in consequence of preachiang a great deal in my own and various other churches an this region, I was attacked by the Bronchitis, which soon became so severe as to require an immedaiate suspaension of my pastoral labors. My nereous system wa new thorougly/? prostrted, and as my Bronchitis becamwe worse, so also dlid my Dyspepsia and Rthe'amatic an'ection-thus evincin that thesse disorders were connected with each other through the medium of thae Nerrous System. In the whole pharacopeis there seemed to be no remedial agent which could reach and recuperate my Nervous sys. tm ;every thiirg that I had tried for this purpose hod completely failed. At last I was led by ,my friends to exasmine your invenations, and (though with no very sanguine hopes of their etflciency,) I determined to try the effect of the application of the GALVANIC BELT AND NECKLACE, with the MAGNETIC FLUID. This was in .June, 1846.

E. M.-.-snAL,-Dear Sir: In compli ance with your request, I make thissinplestate mncut of facts. My boy Daniel stuck-a thorn in his foot about the first of last June, the -tiorn was extracted, and no more thought of it for 15 or 20 days, his foot then began to swell, and in a few days it was opened. It discharged a large quantity of matter. The discharge continued for eight days, and then cesed. His foot then re-commenced swelling and extended up his leg, thigh, and hip, with violent pain. He then be. gan to spit from his lungs matter similar to that discharged from the abscess on his foot. I then called in medical aid, and from the remedies used, he was alternately better and worse for eight or ten weeks. During this time a large abscess formed upon the hip, the discharge was large, and as soon as it ceased, a general swelling of ' leg, thigh and breast commenced, which was very hard to the touch, and at times experienced much difficulty in swallowing. Medical aid seemed of no further avail, and was discontinued. .1 then had recourse to your "Magical Pain Eradiator." In forty-eight hours, from the time I commenced its use, his foot began to soften ; the syelling an his hip and breast subsided, and I am pleased to say he is now well. I again used your remedy in a ease of Neu ralgia, with great success, giving immediate re lief. I have tried it also for Tooth-Ache, with my youngest child, with entire success. From the success I have had in the your "Magical Pain Eradicator," I baiehaolied tation in recommending it to the public. Yours truly, W. W. HUGHES' The above statements of the use of "Mar.. shall's Magical Pain Eradicator," are known me to be true. - (Signed) ANGUS BETHU14E None is genuine without the written nmame J. E.
