STAR OF THE NORTH.,
QVgrictt.lurnl Department.
THERE ARE very few soils lhat do not re
quire more or less under draining . The
cold clay soils holds a super-abundance of
water the year around, "eight inches of
such soils, saturated with water in spring
cannot quickiy become dry if all aier
must cross slowly and silently downward
through the particles of earth in a broad
field. It has been shown that a single acre
of soil a foot deep, holds at a wet season a
surplus of more than two thousand barrels
of water, which if disctiarged would leave
the land moderately moist and right for veg
etation." The only way to do this is to pro
vide artificial channels for its discharge.
There are some soils that do not require
draining, such as 6and and gravelly soils
'that do not permit of a high state of culti
vation, as it is impossible for such soils to j
hold manure enough to preserve them in a
.rich sta'e of vegetation. Other sods are I
■provided with natural draining* of gravel
underneath. The land when thoroughly
drained will .permit of working at almost
any season ol the year, and will bear deep
tilling, so that a farmer can get good use ol
the land each year by draining the co'd lands
are made warmer,as they are not as liable to
freeze deep in the winter,and then out much
earlier in the spring allowing the farmer to
commence his work early, and is not obli
ged to wait for his lauds until the best seed
trmo has passed. The soil is not so easily
affected by drought, for if the land is not
muddy in the spring, it does not bake up
in lumps in dry weaßier, but remains me!- i
low to a great depth, so lhat roots can pen- ]
etrate to the moisture beneath, lit this |
count}* there are many acres of swamps and |
log holes, that by a little systematic drain- !
ing, could be made drv enough in one sea- !
sou to cultivate. Farmers are apt :o think I
that because the soils resemble the while
clay when covered with water, that if drain
•cd the sand would be worthless ; but instead
•of that alter draining it gradually changes
to a dark color, and by mixing it with the
barn-yard manure makes a compsition al
most as rich as the pure Peruvian guano.
We know of swamps within five miles of
this city that could be drained with little ex
pence, the lam! of which alter thorough
draining would sell at least lor Slot) per
acre, which is worihless in its present coil- j
■dilion and only a nuisance.
Decline in Wheat Growing
Between 1840 and 1850 the production of I
wheat increased 15 per cent., while the pop- j
ulaliou increased 33 per cent. In New Eng. j
land the decline was 50 per cent.; in New |
York 25 | er cent., the increase being in the ;
Northwestern Slates. The average yield ol
wheat in this country was not more than 12 |
bushels per acre. In England it is 24 ; in J
Belgium 23 , in Scotland 30 ; or two and '
e hall times as much as in this country.
These are serious facts, proving that a !
system of improvement has been pursued |
in this country in growing crops by r.o j
means calculated to build up a reputation j
.for good farming—facts which ought to stir
up the indolent to better exertion, and stim- I
ulale the active to still greater activity in '
their calling many, it is true, have aban- j
doried the depleting process of farming, and |
are making some headway in tho direction j
of increased production, but still a greater I
number are plodding along in the path of \
their fathers. The latter seldom read, put- |
ronize, or try to gather better ideas Irom
lessons in improved agriculture, Iroin either I
practical or written example.— Montgomery \
Lt> go .
RYE AND ITS CUI.TIVATION. — It has been re- .
marked that four crops of rye do not exhaust
the soil as much as three of wheat; and a j
successful cultivator ol this crop gives as |
his experience, that when rye has been
cultivated for a term of years upon the same
land, and early clover sown upon it in
spring and plowed in with the stubble in |
autumn at the tune of sowing the next crop, I
the land, without any other application, has I
been kept in a gradual course ol improve-j
metit and the yield of rye continually in- I
creased. This accords with my own expe
rience; but from experiments made on my
own farm, and others by my suggestion, I
believe it much belter to let the clover re
main the second year before plowing under,
as then it is more mature, furnishing a larg
er amount of green manure in a bettet con
dition lor improving the laud.— Genesee Far
mer.
A BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT.—When engineers
would bridge a stream they often carry ov
er at first but a single thread With lhat,
they next stretcli a wire across. Then strand
is added to strand, until a foundation is laid
for planks ; ai d now the bold engineer finds
safe footway and walks from side to side.—
So God takes from us some golden threaded
pleasure, and stretches it hence into heav
en. Then betakes a child and then a friend.
Thus he bridges death, and teaches the
thoughts of the most timid to find their way
hither and thith'er between the shores.
GONE. —Just as an auctioneer in Hartford,
Conn., was saying "gone !" a few evenings
since, his audience went thro' the floor in
to the cellar, but, happily, without hurting
one of thern. The auclioneet, as soon as
he found his legs, remarked that the acci
dent would enable him to sell LOWER than
before, arid called for a' bid," and they "bid
him good night."
A witty man, who lived in cons'ant fear
of bailiffs having absconded, one of his ac
quaintances asked what the reason of his
absence to which he replied, "Why, sir, I
apprehend he was apprehensive of being
apprehended, and so he left to avoid appre

JAKKKTT, UK THE NEW YORK LUNG
INKIBMAKY—Mv connectioi for the past
e lit) ear* with the above Institution, a*
Chief Pli)*iciari, and a twelve )ears' course
of steady devotmn to the Cure of Pulmonary
Cm-sumption and ns kindred disease, togeth
er with my unrivalled opportunities and ad
vantages of pathological researches—aided
not a litde by u perfect s\s t em of Mcbical In- |
halation— ha* enabled me to arrive at a de
cisive, direct, and successful course of treat
ment for the positive and radical cure of all '
diseases of ihe Throat , Lungs, and Air-Pas j
sngei. By Inhal.nion, the vapor and curative I
properties of nledicnes are di r ectly address- 1
ed to the diseased organs and the integument. !
I do not advise the use of medical Inhalation I
ol any kind, to ihe exclusion of general heat*
meat ; and although 1 consider it a u*eful ad
juvant in tfie proper management of those
tearful and often latal di-ease*, yi-t { deem it
very necessary that each pa'ient should have
(he benefit of both gsncial and local treat'
mcM. The success of my treaiment in the
above (liweaaea, and in the high cbaiacier of
the Irisdiutiou over which I have so long had
the honor to preside, are too well known to
need any eulogy'oi comment from me. At
the solicitation of many private and profes
sional friends, through whOMi philanthropic!
aid the above charity ha* been long and lib- i
eraliy supported, and after due con.-ideruiioii, I
i have concluded to make such arrangements |
ae will bring the benefit* of my experience i
and treatment within the reach of all, and not :
confine ni)*elf, as heretofore, to those only j
who entered the Infirmary, or who were able ;
10 visit me at my r fllce. Hoping therefore !
that the arrangement will give entire snitslac* 1
