LEWISBUUG CHRONICLE AND WEST BRANCH FARMER
V;KST BRANCH from the Gcrmanfow Tctegrapi. Curing Clover Hay. Clover makes a most desirable and nu tritive hay, provided it le cut in season, and properly cured. Asagrneralrule.it is not advisable to permit it to remain standing much' after the period of inflores er-nce, as the ripening of the seed in' the" field exposes it ta a certain dpgrte of dete rioration which considerably diminishes its value as a feed for stock, besides insur ing a certain degree of actual and unavoi dable loss in handling it, ns those leaves and- heads which have become dry, are easily detached from thr stock during the process of raking and pitching, even when these operations are performed with the most consummate care. My plan of operation in raring ciuver it as follows: As soon as the heads are nil fully blown, 1 commence mowing, care being had to lay the swarths an closely as possible, and to leave no sraHering grass between them, if it can be helped. About fouro-'clock in the afternoon, provided the weather during the day has been clear and warm, I have the swarths turned carefully over with' a fork, and in this position they re allowed to remain till four o'clock the nexr-day. I then, with a pitchfork, com mence cocking the swarths pitching the half made grass in flakes as much as poss ible, and making my cocks compact but small say about eighty pounds uncured hoy to the cock. They are then r.eatly raked off, scatterings" cleaned up, and rocks permitted to remaia unopened and wholly undisturbed, till dry. Should the weather prove favorable, the paling will procred rapidly, and in two days from the lime the grass is cocked, the hay will be fit to mow. This insures iV.e entire preservation of the leps and foli age; confer a beautiful green color to the hay, and prevents the stalks from assum ing that dry, hard ligenious character .. Vi 1 1" I Inn am euro Ir. niueo.B Hnnn mana . " ! " - ay exposure to a not sum uiovcr maae in-this way is never mouldy, -and even should the weather piove unfavorable, or even wet after cocking, the compactness of the cocks will prevent their becoming sat united, and a few hours' sunning will ren- dtf-them fit to mow. I have known hav cocked in this manner to re.naiu out a wcek-orten days, and mil retain all its original greenness and fragrance perfectly unimpaired. Making hay in this onftner, is a practice not yet in much favor with American far- mers ; but in England, Scotland and oih.-r j European countries, the " grass-cock sys- j tem'' of curing, but all other crasscs. even j the finest, when cut for hay, or as a dry ' feed for domestic stock. In the cae of clover, which usually grows thick and : rank, the fork shenld always lake :he place of the rake, which is not rfrj-iitti. A Practical Faiimku. 1'rom the Genctee l'urmer. Corn vs. Wheat. It so happens that my farm consists of i i ii j . i i r IIIIIU ai'll HUH i l'U IU llllll, Oliu iKiin r nr- ... .

When tin? corn begins to sprout 1 ommence harrowing lengihw'ue of the rows with my large harrow, and continue until it begins to appear above ground. This gives the corn a decided advantage over the weeds. I then use the cultivator Ireely, cut the weeds once w ith a hoe, af-tf.- which I Tol low-with the plow. To pre vent the land from being exhausted and save the-cost of manuring, I am carelul to plow in all the stalks, which will thoro'ly renovate and keep up the land for any number of years.

Plaster is so valuable fertilizer, that measures -should be taken to cheapen its transportation to its lowest attainable figure. Lime, ashes, and bones should also be car ried at the minimum charge on railroads and canals. Plaster trade the gain. Messrs. Editors : Many farmers who have used Wheatland plaster for years, think its efrecis uporr the" soil' are nor as good now as formerly, and have conse quently discontinued its use to a great ex tent. They think the plaster has deterio rated in value from some cause either the beds are not as pure as they used to be, or, perhaps, lime-stone or some other stone is mixed with the gypsum. If Dr. Lee has aTilvzed the plasrer of these, and can tell whether ornbt our' s'jppbsitioris are weli founded he will much oblige many readers of the Genesee Farmer. We have not analyzed any of the quar ries of plaster in Wheatland.and we should be sorry to believe that any one should add marl, of which there is an abundance in the neighborhnod,to the pure mineral. The difficulty doubtless U, that your soils are sick of g psum, from the lack of bone-timber, potash, magnesia, and common salt, in the Innd. Plaster is not everything that nature tiimands to form a clover plant, or a crop of wheat, onts or corn. Farmers must learn to take better care of the pot ash, phosphorus, and magnesia, in their soils. Foreign News. The political news from England is of conquerable importance. After repeated efforts of Lord Pulmerston to arrange the Greek difficulty with France, and after several postponements of the debate in the P.riiish Parliament, the question was final ly brought up, and the Ministry defeated Their resignation, in consequence of this defeat, was hourly expected.

To-morrow's sun will light up, through out the Union, another glorious festival of onsututionai liberty another Jubilee of. Freedom. Each anniversarv of this hal-' lowed day brings with it rejoicings more thoughtful, yet more exultant, than its predecessors. Each twelve-month's prog ress up thc steeps of fame and power is, latterly, prodigal of great events, and shadows forth fresh wonders in thc future. Each passing year dcvelopes anew the measureless capabilities of our free insti tutions, imparts to them renewed life and potency, and strengthens and deepens the foundations on which they rest. It is difficult to realize the changes of seventy-five years that have elapsed since thc political tics that connected us with thc mother country were severed, and it is doubly right that the fires of patriotism should be annually rekindled,, aud our country's origin and destiny be thus vivid ly recalled. Aud these festivities could never be more appropriate than on thc present auniversary, while the insane cry of " disunion," from a scattered handful of political fanatics is yet ringing in our cars. springing from the feebleness and de-eudc-nee of our colonial days, as with thc energy of a new creation, our country has in three quarters of a century attained a proud and just pre-eminence in all thc cs- st.ntial elements of national greatness. It is but yesterday, as it were, that one half the present populous States of the Union were a wilderness when there i icithcr turnpike, railroad, canal, or stcuiuUat in the whole country. AVhcn merchandize was conveyed across our mountains on pack-horses, and transported upotin-treams j unwieldy barges that were urged iigainst the current by the most toilsome hibor, at within thc life-time of a single individual all this has been changed as by the touch of a magiciau's wand. Manufactories and institutions of learning have sprung up in all directions. A net-work of turnpikes, canals and railroads has been extended to all points of thc compass. Many of thc niost improbable dreams of the Arabian Nights' Entertainments have been realized, The thunderbolts of heaven have been j disarmed of their terrors aud guided safe- t'ie uosom f tuc earth. We have harnessed up fearful enginery that savages ... . b J , , micht innocently suppose could only have fe J 11 ... been discovered " down below, and with . ' it plou"h at will our lakes and rivers i e ferry the ocean and make thc earth J . ; " - "'s 1'"""-- rous railroad trains. And not satisfied ' with these, and numberless other minor victories over nature, wc have laid a mas ter hand upon thc most subtle of all known elements, and called upon the lightning's flash to become onr obedient messenger. Improvement has kept even pace with thc I progress of scientific discovery. Our wes tern forests echo to the tread of thc ad vancing column of civilization.

I cabinets of Europe, and ly its directness ' and honesty of purpose, has cut the Gor- dian knot of their Machiavellian poliev, and taught them to respect the dictates of justice, and the demands of right. Thc warlike spirit and achievements of our people Las impressed the despotisms of the Old W orld with a sense of the char- cctcr and rapacity of cur institutions that they had failed to receive from our prog ress in the arts of peace. And now, while thc once powerful dynasties of Europe arc resting uneasily upon the brooding ele ments of revolution beneath them, fearing momently the destruction that ultiuiately awaits them at thc hands of their oppressed subjects, onr once contemned republic stands proudly forth as thc exemplar of thc nations; sitting enthroned between the seas, with the decaying civilization of Europe on one hand, the barbaric rude ness aud freshness of Asia on the other inviting and receiving thc ends of the earth iuto her bosom, to assimilate with her own life-blood aud with the commerce of thc world soon to be at her feet, and pouring its countless treasures into her lap. All this prosperity is the direct result, under Providence, partly of our geograph ical positiou, but mainly and essentially of the principles of thc Juffersonian De mocracy, first announced to the world in the Declaration of Independence princi ples which have placed us in a wonderful ly short period on vantage ground that can not be rivalled,, and, traveling across thc Atlantic, have undermined, upheaved, aud will ultimately overturn the despotic gov- j t.rnmcnts 0f crusbed and exhausted Europe Startirjg as wc did with principles and a r... r l.-.t ; i. ;...

IIIUM IU 111V lOkllllit- tion of Monarchist, seemed as powerless and unstable as thc shifting sands of thc sca-shorc, we have proved by tho demon stration of varied and perilous vicissitudes, that our political institutions can cope successfully with the most formidable ex ternal danger, or the most alarming in ternal dissensions though thc one should be found in the opposing hosts of thc 'mis tress of thc seas," and the other be lashed into phrenzy by thc madness of sectional, or party strife. The only real element of danger which was iutcrwoven with our fa bric of government, the Slavery question, has already sufficiently developed its pro portions and prospects, as to remove for ever all apprehensions which the most faint-hearted and desponding may have entertained, on that account, for thc safe ty and perpetuity of thc republic. The Union was never more firmly entrenched in the hearts of thc people than now, and its dissolution never before so absolutely impossible. The only source of danger lies in the very elements of our strength thc possi bility, as some imagine, that thc people themselves may become unworthy of our institutions, or indifferent to their value. It is perfectly true that like causes produce like effects. Corrupt and degrade the masses, and the safeguards of freedom are gone. I5nt elevate and enlighten them provide for the universal and thorough education of thc people and let them, and the public servants to whom they del egate thc reins of government, adhere with inflexible firmness to the letter and spirit of the federal compact, and there will be imparted to our republican institu tions a renewed elasticity and strength that can not be successfully assailed by any adverse influence on earth. The Constitution of the Union is worthy thc reverential regard of the pros perous millions who repose under its shad ow in jieacc and security. It has proved equal to every crisis that has tested its strength, and adapted to our condition in every change of our national advancement. It has grown with our growth, and strength ened with our strength.

C7Se aho .Vf Adv'ts. Correspondence of the Chronicle Burlington City, loiia. ? June 12, 1850 $ Mr. Editor : After writipg my last let ter at Green Bay, I passed up the north side Fox river to thc Green Lake country. I believe I said good deal about the coun try along, and the capacity of that river, but within the limits ot an epistolary com munication, justice can not be done so great and growing a country. The ra pidity with which this country improves, is incredible to an eastern man, unless he comes here and sees for himself. For an ex ample, I will give fne town of ArptrroM, on the north bank of that river, some sev en miles from its source. On the 19th of February 1849, the preparatory school house for & college was commenced, on the site in the woods. Not a house was near, nor a tree cut, before this. And when I was there on the 11th May, 1850, seventy-three houses were up, and occu pied ; the school in full operation, with some 100 scholars ; a splendid hotel fin ished, and two others about finishing ; and many more buildings commenced. The town was already well supplied with stores and mechanics, 6f all kinds, and several doctors and lawyers. Your readers must not imagine that these buildings are cabin; by no means. They are neat, well finished frames painted white, and some of them built with much taste and elegance. The same spirit of go ahead is manifested at Neena, Menassa, Oshkosh, A'goma, and Fon du luc, which lie on the west side and end of Lake Winnebago. The latter place is the oldest, and lies at the head of the lake. It was commenced some four years since, and now numbers a popula tion of some 2,500, is very neat in appea renre, and full of business, life and anima tion. Thc country in the neighborhood ol Ceresco and Green Lake, as far as Fort Winnebago is also a magnificent section of conn'ry. In traversing this country, we can soon find a key to the magic prosperity of these towns, as it requires not the slow process of years' hard labor to clear and prepare the ground for cultivation ; thousands of acres being ready for the plough, and w hen once ploughed is as easy farmed (and re quires not half the attention) as the best bottom land on the Susquehanna, after forty years, cultivation. In the western part ol Ihe State, however, we find a diffe rent soil, and quite a different state of things. I allude to the mineral lands. Lead is found in great abundance, and some Copper, but the county as well as the population, is rugged and uncultivated. The Southern part of the State is unques tionably a master-piece of nature. Rock and Walworth counties, in Wisconsin, Winebago and Ole counties in Illinois, I appenr to have every element of perfection libra farming country ; and Wntcrtown, 'Janesville, Itelnit, and Rockford, which are located on Roelc river, partake of the nature of the country. Wisconsin is generally healthy, especi ally l lie lake country. Milwaukee is a beautiful nnd flourishing young city. It is rincipnlly built with a rich cream-cob lured brick. These bricks are made by steam, pressed ready for the kiln. There is one establishment there that turns off from 30,000 to 26,000 bricks per day. They make a very permanent and magni ficent looking wall. Their sand stone is of thc finest quality, and a very rich sub stitute for marble for sills, steps, &c. The architecluul skill and workmanship of the mechanics of Milwaukee, will favorably compare with the best in the eastern cities. If our eastern cities are not thrown in the shade by this modern improvement, will soon perceive an imperceptable shadow steal over ihem.because their grandeur and style is examined, and improved upon. Port Washington, Racine, and Southport are also handsomely located, and pleasant coast towns. Chicago (Illinois) is quite a city; is built principally of wood, streets and pave ments are all laid wkb plank, and in dry weather has quite a combustible appearance It is considerably larger than Milwaukee, but nothing to compare with it, in point of elegance and taste. Its public and private buildings as well as its stores and business depots, have more of a picayune appear ance. The whole State although it con tains a soil of superior quality, and very little that is not first rate, lacks that neat, flourishing, and enterprising appearance that arrests Ihe attention, and elicits the admiration of the traveler in Wisconsin. Peoria is decidedly the most pleasent town I have seen in the State. It is situated on the Illinois river near the out-let of Peoria lake, and has a population of some 2,000 to 2,500. In the western part of the State is some broken, sterile counly, but nineteen twentieths of the land is really delightful, and wculd yield the industrious husbandman a rich reward. Piairies are large and luxuriant ; and roads are some times not easy found. I would suggest to those who propose traveling in the West, to supply themselves with a pocket com pass, 1 have found it very convenient on these prarics. Of Iowa, I am not prepared, as yet, to speak, but from what I can learn it is the same character of soil. It appears to me that I have already seen first quality of land enough in this country upon which, with a supply of Pennsylvania farmers. and lhe assistance of Ihe ploughing, sow ing, reaping and "thrashing machines, a CELEBRATION.
