The State - Agricultural Chemist of Maryland, Mr. Higgins, has published a paper showing the necessity of droughts to replenish the soil with mineral sub stances, carried off to the sea by the rains, and also taken up by the crops, and not returned by manure. These two causes, always in operation, would, in time, render the earth a barren .waste, in which no verdure would quicken, and no solitary plant take root, if there was not a natu ral counteraction by drought, which oper ates to supply this waste in the following manner : During dry weather, a continual evaporation of water takes place from the surface of the earth, which is not supplied by any from the clouds. The evapora tion from the surface creates a vacuum, so far as water i3 concerned," which is at once filled by the water rising up from the subsoil of the land; the water from the subsoil is replaced from the next strata below, and in this manner the circulation of water in the earth is the reverse to that which takes place in wet weather. With this water alsp ascend the minerals held in solution, the phosphates and sul phates of lime, carbonate and silicate of potash , and soda, which are deposited in the surface soil as the water evaporates, and thus restores the losses sustained as above stated. The author of this theory appears to have taken considerable pains to verify the fact by a number of interest' ing experiments. The subject is worthy the - attention of men of leisure and of education, who .pursue the rational system of blending chemistry with agricultural science." - The above is from the Philadelphia Ledger, and contains evidence within itself of . correctness. - In connection with this, let ns point out the benefits of keeping the soil well pulverized or cultivated, to pre vent the mineral and other food of plants from being carried away with rains. : En gland has a moist climate, subject to great rains, and is seldom visited with droughts, and yet more wheat is raised to the acre than anvwhere in the world. .Why is this? Simplv on account of the univer sal practice of draining and keeping the soil in a highly pulverized state. When the soil is kept porous, it absorbs ammo nia and carbonic acid gas from the atmos phere, and when rain falls these are carri ed down into the soft porous soil, and are taken up as food by the plants. If the soil were hard and caked, the rains would run violently off the surface, carrying away some portion of the 6oil, and with it the food so necessary ; to Eupply the plants with nourishment. The benefits to be derived from keeping the soil of culti vated fields well pulverized and open, can not be too " highly extolled. Scientific American. ; ' , Budding.' ' " SUBJECTS FOR UCDDINO. StOCKS Orf limbs from , or $ of an inch in diam eter are suitable for budding, and even those of an inch will answer, but they are more proper for grafting. It is of great importance that the stock be well estab lished and in vigorous condition, that it may send up a strong, straight shoot, forming a good trunk for a standard, else it will be stinted and scraggy, and difficult to form into a good tree. " . In this climate,, if .the stocks are young and of common vigor, and the season and the weather as to moisture about as usual,' the time for budding is generally about as follows: , Plums, from Aug.' 1 to 10. "Cherries, from August 5 to l6. -Pears, from Aug. 10 to 20.'f Applesj from Aug. 15 to 20. Peaches, . from Sept. 5 to 15 or 18. Apricots on plums, same as plums. Quince, same as apples. But if the sea son has been forward and wet, and trees have grown fast and early, and then begin to stop from drought, the budding must be done earlier. .; r'r '' - ; Preparation and saving of Scions. Cut scions of the present year's growth, that have ' been, thrifty and strong, and are nearly, done , growing, becoming . firm and ripe..- For early use, scions on old trees of moderate growth are usually best, being more firm .than those of rapid growth. , , ? ... .-. . .. .: As soon as the scion is cut, trim off the leaves; leaving about" J of an inch of the foot-stalk, else the leaves which trans pire moisture rapidly, will absorb it from the bnds and quickly spoil them. , Mode of Budding. The most common and the best is T budding. , . With a sharp knife, make ;.a , perpendicular slit, just through the bark, about an inch long, then a cross cut in the form ofla letter T. If one has not a budding knife,' to raise the bark with, this may, be done with a piece of sharpened hard wood. Lift up the bark not force the instrument between the bark and wopd,f and : disturb the" cambriumi or new layer of soft matter -" t ' : 1 Hold . the but of the scion from yon, and insert the knife about one-half an inch below the bud that is next the but end, and with a" gentle curve cut. about to the depth Of one-fourth the diameter of the scion more in 6mall, soft, or rather green scions, and less in large scions of firm or ripened wood and bring out the knife about one-half an inch above the bud. Then -put the bud under the bark, and slide it down the vertical slit till the bud is. a little below the cross-cut; then if any4 ot tne Dars remain .above the cross-cut, cnt it off there, making a neat fit.
