To Our Parons.
As this is already acknowleged to be one
of the best papers in the State, we think it
will not diminish either its usefulness or in
terest to add two or three collumns exclu
sively devoted to Agriculture. Having agreed
to take the supervision of the Farmers De
partment, the undersigned feel assured that
they can give - something each week, inter
esting and edifying to the farmer-but they
make no rash promises. Our readers may
therefore rest assured that they will not be
disappointed. S. S. COLTER.
B. T. SCOOTER.
The Iron Plow.
This is indeed the age of progress. The
"iron horse" has long since puffed and
snorted himself into notice; but now comes
the Iron Plow and language fails to tell all
his merits. This is one of the best utensils
for the farmer that has ever been invented.
The ever-ready plow-that niggers nor
mules can break. It may be left in the fur
row in August, and hitched to again in
February, without having to tighten a
wedge. It will never weather, crack or rot
off at the foot. For thoroughly turning or
breaking land deeply, this plow can not be
surpassed. It does its work thoroughly, with
ease to both man and horse, and for durabili.
ty alono it is worthy of the highest recom
mendation. As plow timber is growing very
scarce, the iron plow comes to the rescue all
in good time. The time lost in repairing a
plow-stock, and wedging it up &c., in the
course of two or three years, will pay for
the iron plow, which will last fifty years at
least. Evry farmer in Edgefield ought to
supply himself with this plow, as one step
towards economy; and no one will repent
:having made the investment.
This plow is now being manufactured by
Mr. S. F. GOODE in this place, and all persons
'vho wish to purchase had better send in
:their orders as early as possible, as we un
.derctrad that many have already given
motice that they wished to be counted in.
The Cotton Planter.
The farmers of Edgefield are particularly
invited to call and examine the "Cotton
Planter," a moddle of which is left at this
office by Messrs. Calhoun and Carter, Pro
prietors. This is a machine which speaks
for itself. It opens the seeding furrow,
strews tho seed evenly, and properly, and
then covers it. It is a labor saving machine.
One hand and one horse do the work of
three hands and tco horses-in a much bet
ter manner than it can be done in the 01(1
wvay of planting cotton. We cannot recomn
mend a farming utensil of this character too
highly. Call and see it for yourselves and
then order the machine, or buy the right im
mediately. The amount of time and labor
saved by its use, wvill more than pay for the
machine.
Plow Deep.
Success in farming depends upon many
contingencies. A farmer may do his work
wvell, and yet the soil which he cultivates
ma~y fail to meet his expectation in yielding
a crop corresponding to the amount of labor
bestowed. Thue seasons may be unpropi
tious: and good work may, (for the want of
a correct judgment) be misapplied, and even
with good seasons, may prove in the end to
be rather injurious than otherwise, to the
growing crop. There is no kind of labor
expended by the farmer, so well calculated
to insure a good crop, as deep plowing in
the preparation of land before seeding. A
thorough preparation of the soil is a crop
half made. Land~thoroughly broken up and
pulverized, affords greater facility to the
feeders (the roots) of the plant to go in
search of food and drink to sustain and
nourish it. Deep plowing also has a ten
dency to give to the soil about the roots of
the plant a capacity for attracting moisture
from the subsoil as well as absorbing it, to
getherawith those gasses, genial to the growth
of the plant, from the atmosphere. " Plow
deep," and you will have made a good be
ginning. Those who .wish to make a good
crop must thoroughly prepare the land, and
now is the time to prepare. Plow deep not
only the soil, but break up the sub-soil. He
who breaks deeply the sub-soil, has cleared
a new-ground.
FOR THE ADVERTISER.
Planting Out Fruit Trees.
AIR. EDITOR :-The following is my ex
perience in this business; which, of course'
yon can make use of in whatever way you
think best.
Lay off your ground about 15 feet each
wvay, and in each cross dig a large deep hole.
Fill up this hole wvith rich soil from the
wvoods, until it shall just receive the plant to
its natural depth; that is, just as deep as it
was growing when taken up. Dig side
trenches for the horizontal roots. Set in
your tree, observing that none of the roots
are crowded or pressed out of their natural
position. Let one hold the tree perfectly
upright, while another carefully packs in the
dirt. That's all.
In the winter of 1853-just two years
ago-the writer procured four dozen trees,
of different varieties, from Mr. Wig. SUMMER,
of Pomaria, and planted them out in this
wvay. They all lived and are now living,
(except two pear trees, which were planted
on a very hard red place, and the weather
becoming dry, they wilted and died after
leafing out,) and will bear fruit this year.
be taken to destroy as few roots as possible,
and in setting them out, there should be two
hands; one to hold the tree steady and per
fectly upright, while the other carefully
packs in the dirt. If the ground is very dry,
a bucket of water should be poured into
each hole before putting in the plant.
But, planting out the trees is only the be.
ginning towards having good fruit. They
require a great deal of care and attention
afterwards-such as protecting them from
rabits, borers and various other kinds of ene
mies. In fact, they should be worked and
kept clean, just like every thing else we
raise. No kind of stock should be permit.
ted to run among them, except hogs, and
these only during fruit time.
FARMER.
Higgins' Ferry, S. C.
REMARKS :-Many thanks to our friend
"FARMER" for his sensible and practical
views upon " Planting Fruit Trees." We
hope that be will continue from time to time
to give us " a few more of the same sort."
We suggest, however, that we think 15
feet, too close to plant fruit trees. It would
be better to plant them 15 steps or about 30
feet apart. We were informed by a very
successful Peach-grower, that in planting
peach trees, each tree should be inclined to
the South, so that its foliage or top would
shelter its trunk and roots from the scorch
ing rays of the summer's sun.-SCooTER.
Paint Your Implements.
The primary agent in all decomposition of
organic matter is oxygen. Without its pre
sence under normal dircumstances, no
change takes place. . But this oxygen, in at.
mospheric air, is everywhere present, and
decay under its destructive influence is al
ways going on. To exclude the air, then,
from all bodies we wish to preserve is the
first requisite. In nothing is the rule of
more practical importance than in the pre
servation of the wood. Filling the exterior
cells of wood with paint is perhaps the
cheapest means of retarding its decay. This
is well understood and generally acted upon
in the construction -of all new implements.
There is however, one point which appears
to be forgotten, or at least to be generally
disregarded. Paint by the action of air and
rain is washed out of the pores, and when
this is the case, the work of destruction pro.
ceeds, we believe, more rapidly than though
the wood had never been painted. Enghsh
implements are much more costly than
American, and this may be the reason why
they take better care of them. Though paint
is more expensive than with us, they are in
the habit of thoroughly washing and clean.
ing wagons, carts, harrows, cultivators, and
in fact every wooden implement on the farm,
every other year, and giving them a good
coat ofred lead paint. It is astonishing how
long their implements last. Many of them
look as though they had been handed down
from father to son for several generations.
In no matter of economy do farmners miss it
more than in allowing their implements to
go with deficiency of paint. We venture to
say, that a wagon frequently washed and
cleaned, and receiving a coat of paint every
fall, will last twvice as long as one never
washed, except by being allowed to remami
out in the rain, and never repainted except
with dirt.
Reader you have a paint-ean and brushes;
at least, it is to be presumed you have, for
no intelligent farmer would be wihout them,
and an unintelligent farmer would not be
found reading the Rural. If you have not
done so already, get your paint and brushes,
wash your implements, scrape off all the
blisters, stop up every hole with putty, and
theni give your wagons, drugs, cultivators,
plows, wheel-barrow, (for of course yo~
have one,) roller, seed-drill, neck-yokes, andC
whiffle trees a coat of paint. The imple'
ments would look as good as new, your
hired man will take more care of them, and
you will save by this single operation, fromi
the increased durability of your implements,
more in the course of a dozen years thani
would make you a life subscriber to half a
score of the best Agricultural papers pub.
lished.-Rural New Yorker.
HINs -ro FARMERS.-A bare pasture en
riches not the soil, nor fattens the animal,
nor increases the wealth of the owvner.
One animal well fed is of more value than
two poorly kept.
The better animals can be fed, and the
more comfortable they are kept, the more
profitable they are-all farmers work for
profit.
Ground once well plowed is better than
thrice poorly.
Bountiful crops are more profitable than
poor ones.
M~ake the soil rich, pulverize it well, and it
Iwill be productive.
Weeds that grow unmolested around the
fences, stumps and stones, scatter their seed
over the farm and are very likely to grow.
Cowvs well fed in winter give more milk
than in summer. An ox that is in good con
dition in the spring w~ill perform more labor
and stand the heat of summer much better
Ithan one that is poor.
When you see the fence down, put up-il
it remains until to-morrowv the cattle may
get over.
What ought to be done to-day, do it; for
tomorrowv it may rain.
A strong horse will work all day without
food, but keep him at it and he will not last
long.
A rich soil will produce good crops with
out manure, but it will soon tire.

& Co., 44 Market Street, Manchester. Prin
cipal Warehouse, 102 Wood Street, Cheiapside,
London, England. A merican Establishments, 38
Ann Street and 102 Nasau Street, New York.
The IIYDRONIAGEN is a valuable discovery for protect
ing the feet from damp or cold, and therefore a preventative
or many Lung diseases, trithoutl any doeforing chvtever.
The lydromagen is in the forn of a sole, and worn iside
the boot or shoe. Its nedicated character is a powerful an
tidote to disease.
For Gentlemen it will be found agreenble, warm, and
healthy, to wear in the coldest or raine* weather, as the foot
cannot become wet if the Iydromnagen is inserted. Ladies
may wear the lightest soled boots oi shoes in the most in
clement wenther with impunity; while Consumption, so
prevalent among the young of our cslntry, may be thwarted
by their general adoption. They entirely aupersetle over
wes, ns the latter caur 'he feet to perspire in a very un
healthy manner; am' esiles, are not dangerous wear to
pedestrians in icy w -er, like India rubbers. While the
latter cause the feet to appear extremely large, the llydro
magen, being a mere thmn slice of cork prepared, peculiarly
plois inside, does not inerease the sizo of the boot, or
caW the foot to appear untltdy. To Children they are ex
tremely valuable, as they mny engage in exercise with com
fort and healthy effects. 'their expense is so slighti us to
scarce need mention; besides. those who pnironize them will
fnd their yearly doctor's MWs inuch dintnishe therebv.
As the Hlydromagen is becoming more known, its sale is
nerensing to an almost incredible extent. Last year in Lon
dIon. Mmiehester, Birmingham, Liverpoi. GlIsgow, Leeds,
Dublin, Paris. Antwerp, flamburgh and lerln our sales
reached 1,732.4:01 pairs of Cork Soles. This year the num
