[From the Sob'hero Planter ana Farmer.]
ticrsral Bansea ?a Sheep BuaoaneJr?. The advantages of Tidewater Vir? ginia are so many und d? valuable in pinny industries, that it my be fon aldsrsd sup? rfluous to make any an\ ?.u^cstions in that direction; but ohser ration and a small experience, lead BSr to write a few lines upon oue branch of stock raising, which appears to be tntirely neglected in the Tidewater region. The caption to this article is suf? ficiently indicative without further il? lustration of its intent, but ths means and methods may sad can be fully ?Itmonstrated. All farming operations art more or less tedious and full of de? tail, and the quickest crop or production requires a half year to show results. I purpose ?jiving some data as to expen? ses and the same relation to products upon sheep husbandry, and will begin. BS it were, "ab ?to." The farmer is without sheep and has wry little capital. I will be>;'tn with if H'U cash and the forage usually found upon a farm of two or tlnce hundred a.ris. This$100 will buy thirty ewes. delivered in Riihmond. and a little care can have them with lamb, to oedroppeu in December. The ewes should be upon the farm by the beginning of November, so that that they may be fed and go. m tine condition by the time the lambs an dropped. This will insure the lambs coming siroug and active, aud -likewise thai the ewes shall have a large supply ol milk. We must resort to figures ami calculations: 30 i-wn iu Richroand_$100 00 Delivering upon farm.5 00 A sut ip will consume three pounds hay ami oue pint of oats the day. in ad? dition to wlaBl grating they may ?et. Ties ?kill lie a full allowance. A simple Calculation will show that the thins sleep, in five mouths, will coaaam? pounds? of hay and 70 bushels ol tmts, i.tui ibeae, bay at $15 the Uan and oats-to emu the bushel w.llamouut t > |?3; salt will cost $1; here then the actual outlay is $159; interest sin mouths 7 percent. $5.53; total, $164.53 Will pi..per eate there will, on the 1 i tLy oi'Au_u>l. lie the Uiirtj ewe-. aud thirty lamba at leus?, three mouth? old. The latter will net in the New York market, even at the depressed pri?es ?if to-day. |ll*0. Here. theu. Is a clear profit in 0 months of $15 47 on an out.y ol $101.53. which is aver 2U ; i/- tent, annually upon the outlay. Bui that is not the profit. The larmer still La? bis ewes tree of cost and his tweuty percent, upon the investment. The ewes olighl in lie worth two-thirds ol vihat they cost. Now add this to the $15.17. and there results a clear profit of $85.47 upon the outlay of $101.53. which la over 50 per cent, annually. The above. I trust, will not be tiresome. 1 have put it in ? the form easily comprehended, aud Q shows real results, and 1 have, ?Oggeeted that method of realizing where j there is least risk. A few words morel and the leader shall be relieved. I am aware ol the ditll?ulties attending sheep ujj IB our vicinity, but I know, too. there is nu exaggeration one way ; or the other in the statement above. I i Ami let us look at another phase of the i enterprise. Say the farmer wishes to retain or cannot, during the spring, sell ; a?-. The 1st of JoiM his ewes would surely yield him a clip of one hundred pouuds of wool, which would be worth $25; and if the ewes were fattened in October aud November, t'n-v would as certainly bring $5.00 round as that he had them. Here would be another profit of over one hundred dallara, deducting the keeping. w lieh, upon an ordinary fan?, should not be over$l per head. Let us ask it any other opera1 ion pays as well upon any farm now in Bastian Virginia ? a? ?a>? ? ? [Breeding Steck ea tbe Farm. In view of the marKet for choice stock late thrown open to our Barmen by tin exportation of cattle, aud meat to Eu? rope, it behooves them to pay increased Blteutiian lo the raisin-; of ?superior aoimala on the farm. A late report on the Ann ricaa meat, trade by Pruteawof Shelita? ot the Ciriuccstcr Agricultural (Jolle_'e; Eii-iUnd. after fuitnshin.' it 1111? t?| lltorillllt. '11 (Ml the MUbjel.

The experience of many thriving l?rmet? all over the country, proves thata baiter run of animals is obtained by breeding them on the farm than by purchasing them. More care is bestow? ed in selecting the likely oll'springs ot trial I animals, they will goon fattening more rapidly and uniformly than strati gers puked up here and there, for U takes some time before these get ac? quainted aud become content enough to lay on flesh kindly in their new hoim ; and moreover, the tendency of prices for young stock is upwards, and the ?reliability is very strong that ere loin; it will not pay farmers to ?jo into the market for young animals. Id auy case, it ?g, as a rule, more profitable tu breed the stock one handles thau to purchase it. ITRTARD.?Custard, which consist* of egirs beaten up aud mixed with milk BATctcued and set ins slow oven to bake, is one of the most easily digested and nutritive articles of food we can have, especially adapted for young children ?tul invalid?. flftw?ball Ei* ?it?!-* Laatf? be Brelalsse Much has been said and written t thisininortaiit questioh, bat such is tl advance of sclchcc, that ht fore hi t'.eory can fr? put into general practic it i? .?aperceded by something new. The world morts and everythn mu?l move with it. The great hook nature is spread out before us. amltho who wish may, by the light of scieiu read her laws. 1 predict that the day will come win nature's storehouse Will be unlocked I he key of science ?ftd the riches there will be placed within easy nach those who labor diligently with bra and muscle. The source from which must come Vefy large per ceutage of the constiti ents necessary to plant life, is tl atmosphere. Then, if this pp-positi, be true, the question naturally arisi Hew can we secare and turn to praclic account those constituents of plant !i which a kind Providence has plan withiu our reach nnd lor our benetii I will only malic a few suggestion hopping thereby to draw out ?mi: geutleronn who is able to throw ??on light on the subject. First. 1 ??aid suggestrest, when I land may become charged with hum which is an important ingredient of V soil. having an affinity f??.- nitmge dniws nitrei:en and moisture from tl atmosphere, and holds them until tin may be taken up by plants, keeps ?1 soil pourous. triable and in condition I [?ermit the rootlets to perm ate tli soil m search of food, holds IheSeasoi as they fall charged with plant foud. Moisture or water is the great dt'ftlderi turn with the farmer, for without il n fi-rtilizer will nvail any tiling- Tlie ?111 portance ol a porous soil is well uti'lei Stood by all experienced egr?uilurUti A deep, mellow soil, made so b\ tl incorporation o Vegetable matter ha? capacitv for alntorbiust and retaiuili moisture over and above ?tard, ihin s??i as the sponge ha? ovt i hard Mlhstanc?

In rotation we grow > n>p whose demand ior some of the in.r ?bents of tin soil ?ale??, than were th preceding; and by the time the rotatin ?a completad the materials required fn the tiist crop, have been, to s. n:e ej tent. restor.-,l In atmosp ore action. For example: Follow lime plnnl will potash plants, pota?!, plants ??r silica plants; iu llii? way the soil : gati erlog one eonstitu? nl of planl lili while it is being exhausted of another thu? it is that the fertility ol the soil i kept up for a much lunger period of tini without artificial manure?. Third?deep plowing. Where thei is vegetable matter to incorporate will it, (though there is such a thing as plow ini; too deep), not more than one iiic of clay should be turned up durm: twelve mouths. A deep soil is ver [important, but should be rieepeuei gradually. A soil twelve inchcs dee has twice the absorbing c;i,.:.cit. of ??III ais inches deep, and will ?land dmugh just in proportion to the depth of s??i and the amount of huniiM conUaloi i therein. Fourth. Thorough cultivation i another nu-ans of sustaining and im proving our lands. 15y this means tin organic constituents of plant life, (eve present in the at'noapherv), are absorbe? by the soil and there held until let otfa drafts are made on them by vegetation be that what it may. Fifth. By tnrulug L'reen crops, sue! as peas, clover ai.d vetch, but mon particularly peas, as they an- itilmiieh better for loir latitudes, and ihey wil grow on any kind of land, and gnu two crops in a season for fertilizing pur poses.
