SIBSCBIPIIOX! i 00 per Tear, la Adf . NICHOIAS B. KLAINK, Editor. FARM TOPICS. THE SCUl'I'EBSOSO OKAI'E. As very little of this specie? of grapes (Ml! rotumUfoli'i) is known by your Northern readers, some of them may be sufficiently enriou to know more of its jieciiliaritie-i. In coniinon with all the other native varieties, it U diaxious Jiolyjmmtf, or in other words the pistil ale or fruitful plants have a portion of perfect flowers and a portion of imper fect Honors in the same clnstcr, while iUmiimte plants have all the (lowers entirely destitute of a stigma and pistil, and aic consequently all entirely barren. This being llio case, of w hat use are thee latter plants ? They are not need ed for the fertilization of the frnit-licar-ing portion, as suflicientflovters are per fect to produce an enormous crop of iruit, aim it makes no difference in the quantity of fruit if there is not a stami nate plant within miles of them. This is the case with hibrusca, cordifolia, rywrta and rofiiiidifulia. V. aitivalis I ha e never examined criticall v. 1 have been cultivating the rotundifolia class for some thirty years or more, and also liavc proved some forty or fifty varieties' of the other classes which are cultivated, at the North. Some years since, t abandoned all ex cept J . rttundtfolia, which I find to be the only one exempt from disease. I now hae quite a large variety under cultivation, having raised a large num ber of seedlings from tho seHU ol the Scuppcrnong, which is a whito or yel lowish grape, with berries varying in .size from threofourthsiof an mcu to one and a quarter inches in diameter, tho clusters varying from one to twenty berries, and it is the only native grape which carries the Muscat aroma. None of the varieties 1 have, ever fail to pro duce good crop', and the vines are en tirely free from disease ia vine, let! and. fruit. The w eight of fruit on each vine, is beyond belief by those who have never seen this class in full bearing. I have this season had arbors crushed down with the great w eight of the fruit on them, although they were built of good, stout chestnut fenec rails. Some grape 'growers complain that the clusters are too small; this is not so; each tine is a 'ime clnster in itseHlhcly"Iii"g!Uhcr-ing-thenr w lreri ripei Uiey af f shaken down on to sheets m'ado for tho pur pose, instead of being picked by luuid asjis the case with the cluster varieties; and in W) bushels of the berries, which arc gathered entirely free from stems. ono will not find a rotten or imperfect berry. Myvinoyard, which is a small one, has this jear yielded four gallons 'of must or juice jer bushel of fruit. I have ouo tine, a seedling jrotn he Scuppernong, raided by nrysolf, which will compare very favorably ui quality with tho DUck Hamburgh, while the berries are from on? to one and a quar ter inches in diameter, of a black color, speckled with ruct.

Thus apple orchards w ill be come often fifteen years old before bear lnz. and. in fact, manvlfef them never bear irood crops. Just how to obviate this difficulty is a problem that has ex tivators all over tlfo Vest, and1 the 4 IjutyCake 1 reason wnv no conclusions nave ueen arried at by our best pomologists, and that will be generally applicable, is that, as a rule, the conditions necessary to success are as varying as the localities, soils and other minor integers surround ing each orcliard planted. Shall we then neglect to plant orchards? Iiy no means. Itut, say many, there is no money in fruit. The markets are glut ted except at certain seasons. True enough, jet this should not prevent any farmer trom planting an orchard on the best site near his house possible, or if the situation is n&t adapted to fruit, make it so, as far as circumstances will allow. It is true it is better that the soil be dry to a good depth. It is true that orchard trees of no kind will do well on a soil in which the water stands near the surface of the ground. It is as true, however, that there aro few farm houses in the West, 'where, by proper means, the drainage may not be accom plished to the depth of at least four feet from the surface. This w ill do ' well for all fruits except the pear, and the cultivation of this fruit in' the West is not successful except in confined and widely separated localities. Tho same may be said of sweet cherries. 1'lunis are difficult of cultivation, principally from the attacks oPtho curculio.

There is one thing that too many farmers forget Jn tliis.connection. That is, all the fruit gathered for family use is worth jus the price asked for it by the village grocer.
