FARM AND FIRESIDE.!
[From the Southern l'ltnter and l'aru.er Pkum Gjch. G. 8. linn, OT SlIKXaXUOAH Co., Va : : I read, with much interest, Col. Knight's article, from the fact that it is corroborative of my experience, as to the yield where wheat was sown moderately thin. 1 never witnessed Bach results Irom a half bushel seeding, hot the best crops 1 have ever mate were where one bushel was chilled In. 1 thinkthe conditloa of the hvnd,its fertility aud the time of sewing, should control the amount of seed to be used. I shoud not like to sow at any lime less than one bushel when drilled, or five peck? sown broadcast. The season oci ally might suit a lesa quantity, Iho re? sult be very gratifying, as in Col. Knight's case, but the nop has too many risks to tun from drought, fly, fui zing out and other causes to ex? pect evert grain to tiller and matun lvances,lhi My of seed should be increased,hut nd flvc 1'i.tks when drilled, as - more halle to al ovc. It Is the experience ot everj farmer where a strong, well-tillered growth is obtained in the fall, that he eau safely rely upon a good crop to follow, provided the land i-nough lo continue the growth aud there ai\ not K>o many plants m the ground. 1 have seen many line fall prospects blighted by its being toe thick; the land not being strong enough to bring ?tali into head. ?^1 am satisfied that one bushel cut ol five can be saved iu seeding, and the crop increased. If this should be the real saving to the Slate. There are several varieties wheat with us. and they all have their -. The Clawson ami Wicks town to a limited extent, but the ... farmers think the white variaties do not suit u^ When a good crop is made, the berry is dark nutl flinty, and dut s nut look like the white wheat cast of the Ridgi or Tidewater. , The red wheats are the Fuit?, Lan? caster and Key's Prolific. The lattei ately been introduced, und has proved to be a wonderful production. It le the old Mediterranean duced into the Valle) teme thirl' ?, It is a tall and vige . with long beards, and the heads have a purple appearance plump and 1 right. 1 write this much about it I gnat fall. My preference is Fultz, and I certainly can't go back on the best wheat ?friend I ever had. . my crop made from twenty live t ' Ihiry-three bushels, averaging nul and corn ^land in . : ' avi j is! thi sh< - eleven sty-seven bi ? field that the November went an over, of as blight amber as ] ver saw, and which a Id not object to. : smut have I found iu my entire crop, which is exclusive!)

These for the mo9l part are dyed of various brilliant colors, and look lo our taste, bo thon unnatural, that we are repelled rainei than attracted by them, the pleasing effect of grasses is in form, rather than in color, and when we see specimens which are naturally of a soft green or -uaw color, dyed with the most intense crimson or blue, or ol a green the like of which no grass evei presented, the is arrested by the "stunning" i and takes no note ol the beauty of form. Others load their grasses with crystals of alum; aud worse yet, others are given a metallic appearance by the application of bronze powders.
