FRAZIER on the Islandford Plantation. t This report is not made as a brag-crop, but ti simply with a view to give a fair statement c of the operations, together with the disad- a vantageous circumstances under which the 0 overseer had to labour, and the good yield -b notwithstanding, for the benefit of our broth- h er farmers. This is as it should be. We A hope others will follow the cxample. Mssas EDITORS: According to your re- n quest, I give you a report of my last year's b crop, and the manner of its cultivation. In t January, my first operations were sowing r and plowing in oats, splitting rails and re pairing fencey By the 5th of March I had v sown the oals, repaired the fences, and bro. o ken up all the land, both for cotton and corn, a and a considerable portion of the corn land 9 the second time. I then commenced plant ing corn and finished on the twelfth. 1, My corn was planted by laying off with a scooter plow and dropt 33 inches apart, - being covered with two more scooter fur rows. I then commenced hauling out ma-r nure, bedding up cotton land and clearing a small new-ground. When these operations I w~ere done, my corn was up,-but the weath er turned cold and upon examination 1 foundr my corn so badly killed that it w-as necessa ry to plant it all over again. This I did in the same manner as at first. I then com menced planting cotton on the 7th of A pril, opening the ridge with small scooters, drop ping the seed, covering some with harrowvs .and some wvith small scooters. 31y corn wvas now beginning to come up. Mly first working to the corn, was by running in the coverin'g furrowv with a subsoil plow.(lBroyles' wve suppdse,) as deep as the best mules could pull them; following with hand-rakes and raking the crust and clods off the young corn. This done and I had the prettiest stand of corn I ever saw. I then turned< b~ack and plowved out the middles with long, sharp scooters and followed with the hoes I and thinned it to a stand. I then went to the cotton I had covered with the plow, and I - w~ith hand-rakes raked off the top of the ridge and in a few days, I also~ bad a fine stand of ( cotton. I then run round the cotton wvith scoo ters with boads nailed on the right side to keep the clods from falling on the cotton, following with the hoes and thining to twoI or three stalks in a place. A fter going over in this way, I then plowv ed out 120 acres of fresh land cotton. b My corn was now to be plowed the second a time. I used shovel-plows altogether this wvorking. After plowing about 100 acres, and wvhen everything wvas looking as fine as, one could wish, on the 18th of may we had| the most destructive hail-storm I ever wilt- [ nessed. Every thing was beaten to and into I the ground; fences were blown down ; trees nd limbs were blown down and scattereda over de whole plantation ; and all our labor| thus far seemed to have been done in vain. I seratobed my head, but that would not do ; so I order e ot the whole force and with might and main went to putting up the fen ees, cuating and rolling logs, and piling up brush. I then determined to finish .plowing my corn-stumps any how, and by that time I could tell what to do with my cotton-shins. By the time the corn was finished the cotton began to grow, some that w~as only crippled I and some coming up from the seed, all to. gether not enough for a half stand. I run round it as before and chopped througha it, not chopping out cotton but grass and weeds.| I then turned back and plowed out the mid- I dies with shovels. After this I plowed my c corn the third and last time. This working ~ was done with shovels and turning plows; e running round with wing shovels and finish-| a ing with straight shovels [ then plowed out my cotton again with ' shovels and at the proper time laid it by with the sweeps. IE The crop gathered was as follows: Corn, 3531 bushels, at 75cts $-2048,25 Cotton, 131 bales, weighing r Oats, 1200 bushels, at 50ets. ...600,001 fl Wheat 36 " at $1,50cts.. ..54,00| Pork, 10,000 lbs net,-at8 ets....800,00 C 89113,00 ? Fodder and Potatoes not counted. Number of hands employed 27, all tod rated as 24 good hands. Yours with respect, &c. Tr. J. H. nRE n-~s-This is a good crop, but it ig ust be remembered that all the expenses of ising it should be deducted before we can rive at a properestimate. The gross amount i reported above is a fraction over $354, ir hand, and we doubt not that even after I expense is deducted there are very few at will go over these figures. TO CORRESPONDENTS. WE hope our correspondents will exercise itience towards our dilatory answers to eir enquiries. We will give all attention in short time. THE WEATHER AGAIN. SiNcE our last issue we have had another rvere trial of the small grain crops in the Iling of another snow or sleet, ,which is t upon the ground. The freezes at night 3der the icy crust of such a sleet must be reatly injurious to wheat and fall oats ; hut is sinful to complain, and we hope that all iings will yet work together for our good. It is too frequently the case that man is ver satisfied with that over which he has 3 control. Farmers especially are too frequently heard Icomplain of the weather. If it is dry he ants it to rain ; if raining he wants it to op, and he is seldom satisfied. To such e recommend the beautiful extract below, om WASHINGTON IRvING: And here let me say a word in favor of ose vicissitudes of our climate which are >o often made the subject of exclusive re ining. I1 they annoy us occasionally by anges fram hot to cold, from wet to dry, icy give us one o.f the most beautiful cli. tates in the world. They give us the bril. ant sunshines of the South of Europe with ie fresh verdue of the North.-They float ur summer sky with clouds of gorgeous nts or fleecy whiteness, and send down oling showers to refresh the panting earth nd keep it green. Our seasons are all poet !al; the phenomena of our heavens are full f sublimity and beauty. Winter with us as none of its proverbial gloom. It may ave its howling winds, and chilling frosts, nd whirling snow storms; but it has also s long intervals of cloudless sunshine, when e snow clad earth gives redoubled bright ess to the day ; when at night the stars eam with intense lustre, or the moon floods ie whole landscape with her most limpid adiance ; and then the joyous outbreak of ur spring, bursting at once into leaf and lossom, rebundant with the vegetation, and ociferous with life !-and the splendors of ur summers-its morning voluptuousness ad evening glory-its airy palaces of sun ilt clouds piled up in a deep azure sky; and s gusts of tempest of almost tropical gran leur, when the forked lightning and the bel owilg thunder volley from the battlements if Heaven and shake the sultry atmiospihere. -and the sublime melancholy of our autumn, nagnificent in its decay, withering down the omp and pride of a woodland country, yet 'efecting back from its yellow forests the olden serenity of the sky, surely we may av that in our climate " the heavens dleclare he glory of God, and the firmament show th forth his handiwork; day unto day utte eth speech, and night unto night showeth mowledge." .PAlSTURES. A proper supply -of pasturage is the great rant of southern husbandry. Unless this rant shall be better supplied, our agriculture nust continue to decline. A routine of rops which furnishes a plentiful supply of. ~rass, hay and small grain, is essential both. or successfully rearing valuable stock and mproving our soils. Add to this as bounti ul a supply of manure as can by care and ~ttention be made on the premises, and there il be a reasonable assurance for prosperi y and independence, if not wealth. The agricultural statistics of England how that while she has some ten millions >acres in crops, she has fifteen millions in ~rasses and pansturage. And there cannot >e a doubt that the most profitable rural nanagement in our country 'is that which jrnishes the best exhibitions of pasturage md the grasses. There are portions of Virginia and Northi 'arolina, whicli twenty years ago, were so ~ullied and exhausted by the continuous cuil ivation of the t wo hoe crops of Indian corn mad tobacco, that the lands were dilficult to ielI at three and four dollars per acre. Those, ands now sell at from forty to one hundred lollars per acre, and are annually becoming nore valuable, under a diff'erenit treatment. Vhere formerly were seeni the ganr't cow ad horse, the half starved hog and sheep, Lre now to be found fat and improved ani nals of every kind; luxuriant fields of red lover, of timothy and blue grass, or rich heat or oat fields occupying the places ihich were cast away as wvorthless ; ei-i ~ration is checked, and the country not less ban the inhabitants, present a cheerful, leasing and happy aspect. Now wvhat has aused this revolution ? Simply the change rom the unremitted hoe crop of hiidian corn d tobacco, to a judicious system of rota. ion, and proper attention to manure, which, rhile it has improved the soil, at the same ime has furnished a plentiful supply of grass d hay. Add to tbese the increased facili ies for transportation, by rail, roads and lank roads, and we have a full explanation f the great reformation and transformration. Have the net profits of the farm beeni di inishedi The best answer~to this ques ion vill be found in the enhanced value of be lands-for it- is hardly probable that here lands have increased in value 1000 to 500 per cent, that the profits have not ad. an cod pari passu... With such examples before him, why is it bat the cotton planter will persist ini his inous coursei Is it because be believes othing can be relied upon for stock od rut Indian corn, and nothing for profit, but otton ? If so, let him ask the Virginia and ~arolina farmer, and they will satisfy him f his error. They will tell him that the pinion once prevailed with them that Indi. n corn for rood, and tobaeceo for' market,1 were the only reliable crops and that this as the great error of their old husbandry, 'ich impoverished their stock and their mda, and was rapidly depleting their pock. FaRwTrox PASTE 'FOR WHEELS.- The est composition that can be prepared, to. lieve carriage wheels, and machinery from iction, is composed of hogs' lard, wheat our, and black lead (plumbago.) The-lard to be melted over a gentle fire, and the ter ingredients-equal in wveight-many he dded, till the composition is brought to the onsistency of common paste, without rais ig the heat near thme boiling point. One; -ial of this paste, wvill satisfy any one, of s superior utility.--Am. Mech. If the black lead is considered too expen. ye for common wangon use , great economy' 'ill be found in mialing a paste of commain r..- byth admnixtre of Ilour. which pre -ents its melting and running away as soon s applied. &ILT FOR STOK. Professor Simonds, Veterinary Inspector of he Royal Agricultural Society, observes, in elation to the action of salt on the animal tconomy, that " it is exceedingly beneficial n moderate quantities, but prejudicial in large nes." lie thought horses might take with idyantage from an ounce and a half to two )unces of salt daily ; but that an excess or it 6vould render animals weak, debilitated, and infitfor.exertion. Similar flcts were applica )le also to oxen, which accumulate flesh fast !r by the judicious use of salt, than without t. le cited Auther Young and Sir John Sin. ,lair, to show that salt had a tendency to pre ent the rot in sheep. Prof. S. added as his )wn opinion, that salt, by its action on the iver, and the supply of soda yielded to the bile, led to a greater amount of nutriment be. ing derived from the food. The substance, be said was also well known as a vermifuge, Jestroying mny kinds of worms in the intes. tnes of animals, and conferring a healthy tone of action which prevented their re-oc sorrence. Several members of the It. A. So. Diety, as Col. Challoner and M1r. Fisher Hobbs, stated that their experience led theim to agree with Prof. Simmonds in regard to the value of salt for animals. In reference to the mode of giving it, the practice of placing large lumps of rock salt in fields or yards, where it was accessible to the stock, was mentioned with approbation. The practice is now adopted by many farmers in this oountry, and after several years, trial, is pre ferred to the former mode of giving salt pe. riodically. When animals are only allowed to have salt once or twice a week, it is some times the case that they eat too much al once, but by having it constantly in theii reach, they eat such quantities as their systetr requires, and it assists the digestion, and pro motes health and thrilt. M.AN SUAR--The following interestin letter was handed over to the commissioner o Patents by Dr. Bernhisel. It is from Mr Aaron Daniels, who resides in Provo city Utah LTerritory, and is dated August 11, 18'55 We copy as follows: "According to agreement, I send you i small cake of the sugar made fron the sirul or honey found on cotton-wood trees, and as you requested, will give you a fe w particu lars concerning the manner in which I discov ered it. As 1 passed along to and from m: cornfield, (which is situated one mile fron town,) I discovered a white substance on th coton..wood trees, which, upon examination I found to be a sweet substance, somewha resembliig the honey dew in the States, bu in far greater abundance, and possessini other properties-sonie of the cakes bein, as thick as a knife blade or window glast I thought, from the quantity there was 01 the trees, that sugar might be made of il and signitied the same to a number of in neighabors, who all ridi' uleud the idea ; so thought I would try anid see what I coul do with it. J took home two bushels, an washed the twigs, and then strained an boiled down the water, whicb made one an a quarter poundus of sugaIr. Since that tim most of the towns have been at work. Sonm families have made as high as one hundre, pounds of sugar. It makes excellent mc lasses, and as good vinegar as I ever sau 1 averaged about eighteen pounsds per da with two three gallon kettles." Although the quantity of sugar made fror this sirnp is smadl, yet we are assured thr it is still profitable, from the fact that sugn in that region of country is worth forty ceni a poundc. Paln1r.inhNG Foon) ron SwyNE, &c.-A mong the various mlodes5 of preparing foo tor fattening swine, I do not recollect seein in " The Cultivator," the favorite plan of th writer of this no ute, viz : Th'lat of having a kinds of meal from grauin in tended fosr fatin i bogs, instead of bouiling or staaming, p) into water in vats or tubs of sizes in pro~po tion to the number fatting. and there remai until fermenitation takes place, before feedin out to the swine-not giving any meal hogs or pigs, until this acid fdrmaentationi observable. In this state I have unever know swine to become cloyed lby overeating, hou ever freely fed. On farms where cheesei made, I have found, as I apprehend, in only a safety but pro~fit in putting the nie' whey into the vat whiere this process wa going on. The~concistency of this prepari tion, i think, should not exceed that of goo cream. In this way l have seen swine fat ten. faster than from meal given in any othe form, and seen less marks of food havin, passed the annual undigested, which is ofte visibuhe when food of a farinacious kind i freely given, unlprep~ared ; and I may adt according to my experience, (though ou very limited scale,) the most profitable. rThe Yankees of New F~ngland have Ion; siiice discovered, that the point of an ol sythe, rendered- unfit for mowing grass, b; long usage, or hroken by accident, sixteel or eighteen inches long, attached to a har dIe of wood, at right angles, or somnewhar obtuse, serves all thme purposes for cuttin up corn, that the more ' formidable machin propjosed by our Virginia farmer would-an auost without expenise.-F.unun.

No woman of delicacy is willing to disclose the peculiar ailments iucdcideat to her sex, even to a most intimate family physitm. This modesty and delicacy is implanted by nature, and neither should nor need besubjected to the rude shocks in evitable in making known to the othersex those allknents.be lunging exchtsIvely to the female. Except in extreme cases, her sensitiveaess will sacrisce her health rather than her delicacy. The onseiuences are aerious, lamentable, and life-long. Thus what at first could have been easily remedied,- or pmrhtas better still, not Incurred, becomes a coniplication of disen'e, not only ruining the health of the mother, and em bittering her days by micknes. and suffbring, but entalling brisken constitutions upon her children, and embarrassing if not distressing, the business and pecuniary prospects of the husband.

'To thme eineistionm, how are these to be prevented? what shall be dlone the nns'wer is simply. Let every womnn ascertain fo~r hserself, w ihout violence to her dellencty, the nature and charneter of the allment (to whleh she as a female Is subject)the causesfrom which It miay arise, and the proper remiedies for Its cure and future preention. This se canm do by possessing a little volume (already postsselt by thosands) whIch tells he~r what Is the matter, and tells her what to don for it, In simiple but chaste words, aneil such'I as shte can understand.
