j—-A (Ngritnllttral Department. FEEDING THE GBAIN UPON i 11); FARM. We last week published an article in our agricultural column, showing the advantage of keeping more cattle on the farm, and feeding the grain to them, w hereby more and richer manure is made, instead of sell ing the grain from the farm, causing the soil to lose the richest sustenance. Mr. Frederick Holbrook, a practical and success ful farmer, continues the subject in the New England Farmer. The grain which he recommends to be fed is of course, such as corn, rye, buckwheat, &c. The true sys tem of bringing the soil to the highest de gree of fertility is by keeping more well fed cattle, and increasing the amount of rich manure. More live stock, and of a good kind, is what our farmers want.—Sun bury Gazette. Mr. Holbrook says :—The hay and coarse fodder are generally fed out on the farm, but often the principal part of the grain is sold of directly for cash. Now I have the impression that in the long run, all things considered, it might be better to feed out the greater par, of the grain along with the hay and other forage, and let the income of the farm be derived mainly from the stock. The grain fed with the forage adds a peculiar essence or strength and activity to the manure heap, is emphatically "the leaven which leavens the whole lump,"and has a very marked influence in increasing the products of the farm generally. The land will be more productive in every kind of crop than if the grain were sold off, and it only got back the colder and less fertiliz ing manure made simply from hay and coarse forage After a few years of this kind of feeding the products of the farm will be BO much increased that considerable more stock can be kept on it, which will, in turn, make more manure for the land. These influences will work back and forth one upon the other, so that in fact the business will grow more and more profitable, and the income will increase more in proportion than it will be necessary to increase the investment There are hardly any limits to the produc tive capacity of our farms, if we only study out ways of expending our crops judicious ly, and making the most of the manures they will return to the soil. Sections of country may be pointed out in Europe, not naturally more favored for soil and climate than our own, where the land has been cul tivated for hundreds of years, and is now more productive than at any former period, and far more so, acre for acre, than the very best virgin soils and lands of our own coun try. Another thing deserving particular consideration, land that is in high cultiva tion, and is judiciously cropped, can be kept at a high mark of fertility with ease, as compared with making exhausted land fertile. The very luxuriance of the crops gives back a large mass of roots and stems to the soil. Especially is this the case when grass sward lias been allowed to form; so that in breaking the sod for a new rotation of crops, we can turn under many tons per acre of matter fertilizing to tho land, con tained in the roots and stems of tho sward Then too, land in high condition is much less injuriously affected by unfavorable pe culiarilies of the season as to drouth or moisture, cold or heat, than if it were in poor tilth, and indeed in a good degree in dependent of these peculiarities. In any season it will pay a larger profit in propor tion to what has been expended to obtain the crop, than can be derived from exhaust ed land. In feeding out the gran corps pretty freely on the farm, there will bo some years when the growth of stock, the meats, the wool, the dairy products, &c., into which tl e grain has been converted, will sell high enough to pay considerably more per bushel for the grain than it would have brought had It been sold off the farm; other years the grain may perhaps bring a greater im mediate income if sold off; but taking one year with another, and considering the stea dy improvement of the farm, where the crops are expended upon it, there will be more profit in feeding out the grain than in selling it off. ,In a period, say of twelve or twenty years, I am inclined to think that seventy-five cents per bushel realised for corn, for instance, fed out on the farm, and the manure returned to the land, is as good as one dollar per bushel realised by sending it off to market for cash, and the farm rob bed of an equivalent in manure for the com thus sold. Take, for instance, the whole amount or number of bushels of grain of any kind produced on an acre of land, or on die farm, and place it in a pile together. It makes only a small heap, even though the yield per acre be a very large one. Yet that heap, small as it is, contains a largg per cent, of s the very essence of the fertility of the soil that produced it, and has taxed the land far more than if it had only produced the stalk and leaf of the plant, or in other words, a forage crop of any kind. This grain, fed out with the hay and other crops, adds wonderfully to the activity and fertilising power of the farm yard manure, and great ly quickens the soil to renewed efforts at production. Then, again, by feeding out the grain with the forage crops, and thus making manure abounding in gases and salts, you may compost much larger pro portions of muck, rurf, the rich soils wash ed into hallow places, or other materials gathered up about the farm to swell the manure heap, andjiave them all decompos ed and sweetened and prepared to become the food of plants, than you could properly use it the cattle droppings were alone com posed of the more lifeless and inactive elements derived only from hay, straw and other forage.

All are invited to call and examine speci mens. [Oct. 6, 1858. Scrofula, or King's Evil, is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated, fveak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it pervades the whole body, anil may burst out in disease on any part of it. No orgun is free from its attacks, nor is there one which it may hot destroy. The scrofulous taint i 9 variously caused by mercuriul disease, low living, dis brdercd or unhealthy food, impure air, filth and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,- above all, by the venereal infection. What ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con stitution, descending •' from parents to children unto the third and fourth generation indeed, it seems to bo the rod of Ilim who says, " I will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon their Children." Its effects commence by deposition from the blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed tubercles; in the glands, swellings j and oh the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor ruption, which genders in the blood, depressed the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitua turns not only suffer from scrofulous com plaints, but they have far less power to with stand the attacks of other diseases'; conse quently, vast numbers perish by disorders which, although not scrofulous in their nature, arc still rendered fatal by this taint in the system. Most of the consumption which de cimates the human family has its origin directly in this scrofulous contamination; (bid many destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain, and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or arc aggravated by the same cause. One quarter of all our people are scrofulous j their persons are invaded by this lurking in fection, and their health is undermined by it. To cleanse it from the system we must renovate the blood by an alterative medicine, and in vigorate it by healthy food and exercise/ Such a medicine wo supply in AYER'S Compound Extract of SaTsaparillay the most effectual remedy which thy medical skill of our times can devise for ttad every where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com bined from the most active remeiUals that have been discovered for the expurgation of this foul disorder from the hlood, and the rescue of the system from its destructive consequences. Hence it should be employed for the cure of not only scrofula, but also those other affec tions which arise from it, such as ERUVTITU and SKIN DISEASES, ST. ANTHONY'S FIRS, KOBE, or EUYSII'KI.AS, FIMFI.ES, PUSTULES* BLOTCHES, BLAINS and BOILS, TUMORS, TETTER and SALT RHEUM, SCALD HEAD, KfNOWorkM, RHEUMATISM, SYPHILITIC and MERCURIAL DIS EASES, DROPSY, DYSPEPSIA, DEBILITY, and, indeed, ALL COMPLAINTS AHISINQ FROM Vrru- TKD OR IMPURE BLOOD, The popular belief in " impurity of the blood" is founded in truth, for scrofula is a degeneration cf the blood. The particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapm rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid, without which sound health is anpoesible in contaminated constitutions, Ayer's Cathartic Pills, FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A FAMILY PHYSIO, are so composed that disease within the range of their action can rarely withstand or erade then* Their penetrating properties search, and clomnse,' and invigorate every portion of the human organ-' ism, correcting its diseased action, and restoring its healthy vitalities. As a consequence of thes* properties, the invalid who is bowed down with pain or physical debility is astonished to find hi* health or energy restored by a remedy at once so simple and inviting. Not only do they cure the every-day complaints of every body, but also many formidable and dangerous diseases. The agent below named is pleased to furnish gratis my American Almanac, containing certificates of their cures and directions for their use in the following complaints : Co*tiv+> ness, Heartburn, Headache arising from disordered Stomach, Nausea, Indigestion, Pain in and Morbid Inaction of the Bowels, Flatulency, Loss of Appe tite, Jaundice, and other kindred complaints, arising from a low state of the body or obstruction of its functions. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, FOR TUB RAPID CURE OF Coughs, Colds, Influenza, Hoarsenesa, Croup, Bronchitis, Incipient Couimp. tion, nnd for the relief of Consumptive Patients in advanced stages of the disease. So wide is the field of its usefulneu and so nu merous ere the cases of its cures, that almost every section of country abounds in persons pub licly known, who have been restored from alarming and even desperate disease, of the lungs by its use. When oneo tried, its superiority over every other medicine of its kind is too apparent to escape observation, and where its virtues are known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote to employ for the distressing and dangerous affections of tho pulmonary organs that are incident to our climate. While many inferior remedies thrust upon the community have failed and been discarded, this has gained friends by every trial, conferred benefit* on the afllicted they can never forget, and pro duced cures too numerous and too remarkable to be forgotten.
