Do not be hum bugged with "colton pickers," but press every hand on the plantation into the work and save your colton tor the pres ent in the good old way. and spend what money you can sp<tre in belter plows, sweeps, gins, and other ??Ho'r saving plan tation implement* and machinery, that yon know will benefit y u. To quote again from Dr. Cloud, "hands should not be allowed to pull the bolls from the limbs in picking-while it re lards the picking it is quitt' an injuiy to the ?rowing stu!'- during the mon;h o' S-pl?-n)b.-r. The (?roduet i veness of ;h colton plant is frequently injured by carly picking hy 'h* etrelessness ot hinds in hendirig Over ir and pressing the limb* t..?eth??fby which they are broken awl otherwise mangled; these injuries are ir reparable by th?; [??ant thus late itt the se ison, and the consequent lo*> i> frequent ly considerable." Make your bales all square and uniform and keep ti.ii. qualities of cotton separate Dealers' and manufacturers- all require b !3 of uniform quality, and the price oj mixed cotton ts generally as low as the poorest colton put in the bale. Choice and valuable varieties of cotton seed must be selected and carefully saved,, so that we may bc ready to go on success fully in the culture of this indispensable crop hereafter. Letal! who have superior colton seed, cither Sea Island br Upland, advertise it widely, in time for thy l?ex? crop. Surglti?h mid h&phe?, should be cut, ground and made .iq? i nib good thick syrup,, as1 fastas the caii? marines. Toe mach care cinuot by taken with the filtra tion of the juice, ami clarifica'i> nt of thc syrup, if you desire a good merchantable article, 'l ite blades of sorghum must, bi cours?', be saved for fodder, and the-seed preserved tor s: ;ck feeding. Cow ljvui> ;nu<t be gathered and stored away in a dry place-giving particular attention to the saving of choice'sorts for the next year's seed. Grass, such ai " Crowfoot," "Crab,'' (or '-Crop,5') etc.. must be cut when in full bloom, and cured with as little exposure to the sui] as possible. The old uegro style, o! waiting 'till ,: firsl frost," and then putting up a lot of dead, dry, sapless grass, and c.dling that " hay," must be stopped, li i< not in accordance with the "progr?s1 of the age." Tue corn und forage crops will bc sc short in all the States cast of the Missis sippi that every provision possible should ba made for economizing them. Turnips will prove most valuable fbi feeding stock of ail kinds. Milch cows sheep, (and it is said horses, if fed it: moderate quantities with other food.) al] thrive upon them. Boiled and the slop thickened while hot with corn meal they are excellent for swine. Sow this crop during this month, at all favorable seasons, and it will be advisable to put in a large crop for stock feeding in winter, it is, generally, best to sow just before a rain, or when the ground is dry, working thc ground thoroughly and not sowing until it has been allowed to dry, for if sowed in soil just moist -enough to sprout the seed the sun often kills it, but in perfectly dry ground the seed will keep without sprouting un?l it rains-covering the seed lightly and pressing the -earth upon it with a roller or plank. We almost in variably sow too much seed, and cover too deep ; but whenever, from any cause, we fail to get a good ?nd satisfactory "stand," the seedsman (or vendor of seed) has to "suffer." Jt is not necessary to drop a continuous line of turnip seed in the drill, especially when the more valu able varieties are rare and diflicult to procure. Two or three seeds, dropped every four (4) inches in the drill, will give you a good " stand," and save a great deal of seed and thinning out. Rye for winter pasture, must be sown very largely, the middle or last of this month. You cannot make the ground too deep Or rich ; and the same may he said even more forcibly of Barley, which on strong, rich soils, is superior to rye. Sow early, use plenty of seed, and put in as great a breadth of land as possible, in these two crops. On lcose sandy soils rye may be scattered among the notion the latter part of the month, and the win ter treading of stock which on heavy soils is injurious, is a benefit to these light lands, but on the richer soils more food is produced. Sow-plenty of the Winter or Egyptian Oats the last of the month for pasturage. lu ordinary winters these three crops afford an invaluable aid in keeping stock in good condition. Procure now, seed of the Red Clover to sow either by itself or in your wheat the last of this month. Any clean soil that will bring good wheat will bring good clover, but the crop is vastly increased by sowing'?pon it broad cast one bushel of gypsum per acre ; auy seedsman can sup ply seed, and we prefer our readers should get it direct. To START A BA ULKT HORSE.-Fill his mouth "with dirt or gravel/rom the road, and he7*!; go. Now, don't laugh at this, but try- it The plain philosophy of the thing is; it gives him something eh''to think of., We haye seen it tried a hun? dred times,, and it has never failed. To put buttons on the horns of cattle, lace a-large-sized baked potato on the orn when hot, and in a few moments it may be taken off' and the button sere .-d j on with a common wrench. A correspondent says : Washing the head with cold black tea once or twice a week will keep the hair from falling oft", prevent its growiilg gray, and give it a fine, lively lustre. SPREADING MANURE IN TII? FALL.-Mr. Lyman Balcom, of Steuben County, N. Y., an old and experienced farmer, writes the Genesee Farmer that he thinks one load of manure, hauled out and spread at any time between the 20th of September and winter/is worth more than two loads applied at voj <tth*r setow. ^^wo-f?ases-ofHP?fm Life. Farming, liSe every other calling, has ?KJ&'JA an tages and l?isadvanfcigcs. The farmer is the most .independent and the most dependent man in existent-D. With farming, as .with every other branch of business, judgment, prudence, und ?corio ny are rerpihsittf -rb success.. .-T^the man .vhn possesses thos^, an agricultural life r>rings the plVas?r?^i?'Jn lei>t-n<3?iicc-Avit?i all the chiirui? ok variety.

Life has chirms tor him which it has not for men of other professions. Ho wel comes tin* changes of seasons nt their ap proach : he' is not afraid of being behind hand wi h his crops, being overtaken by an earl) frost, or disconcerted by a pre mature spring. He welcomes every change of tin? seasons, being always well prepared for their coming. ' ut with some it is hu- difi'eieiit, they are never at case, everything around them goes wrong;. \VTith them ic is too bot or loo.cold, too wet or loo dry. No matter whether the sunshines, or" whether the cloudsdrop rain, snow, orhail, the weather is always wrong. No matter whether the .narket price, of wheat is 50 cents, or ?1,50 per hu-he! il is always too low, and rh?-higher it goes up, the less inclined are they to ?elh Their cattle and hogs are helping themselves to corn at home, or plundering their neighbor::. In this way. they are continually in trouble, and lead a restless, unsatisfied life. There is nothing more important on the firm thatl system and order. Never undti take to do too much, do one thin? a? a lime, and do ir well.

Never exceed your, nieass'by attempting 'tbcult?vate more than you can do well, and in due season. 'Keep a memorandum of you.- work, household expenses, cost of labor, &c", arid balance with lin- income of your business. Under such manage ment, you will at Jill times understand the exact state ot" affairs. The farmer should know bis profit and loss just as i^uch as thc merchant. Observe these few hints and you will find les- rough corners: in the routine of your farm opera lions.-Farmer and Gardener. .. - ? * -- W/ANTS AK EXPLANATION.-A corres pondent i-f th" Hartford Post, writing from Collinsville, says: >;i observed a iTolsce in one of the pa pers recently of thu betii-iit nf drivii?? iiaiis in to'inri t trees lo increase i hu sup ply bf fruit, lt litis long boen claimed by..som'*, that oid scythes, sickles, horse shoes,' &c, hung on the limbs of trees, would increase their fertility; by others it has been scouted as a superstitious no .tion. The writer will state.OKO circum stance which came uuder his personal ob servation that is worth recording: li Mr. G. H. Nearing, of this place, had a thrifty growing apple tree fruin a nur sery set out in Iiis garden, on ??nc of thc limbs of which was the label attached tc a small wire, which he neglected to lakt oflj and soon the wire was entirely im bedded in the bark. The next year thc limb was loaded so heavily that it was neces?ary to prop it up, while there was uot an apple on any other part of thc tree. Can some one of our pomol?gica] friends explain the phenomena''5' RsMEllT KOK WOBMS IN PiACII AM: OTHER FRUIT THEES.-Expose the tops of the roots to the dislance of a foot 01 eighteen inches all around the tree, by removing the earth carefully, and fill up the place with Pride of India berries and cover them loosely over with dry earth, The rain, dew, or any other moisture car ried to thc roots through this "bed ol berries" will effectually destroy iwy kind of worm by which the tree is troubled. Thc same treatment will doubtless prove efficacious in protecting the roots of the artichoke and other plants of Ue vegeta ble garden. GREASE THE WHEELS.-Oil aud black lead is supposed to be the best substance, but wo have always found lard and flour apparently as good. If the wheels arc kept well lubricated, very little difference will be found between the ease of running wooden and iron axles in ordinary farm work. The smaller the axle, the less will always be the friction, other things being equal ; because the spokes have a greater purchase, the friction being the resisting force, and being nearer the end of the lever when the axle is small.
