Raising Potatoes uuder straw.
Several of our correspondents, within
a year, have spoken favorably of the
practice of planting potatoes and cover
ing with straw, both as a less laborious
and more profitable method of raising
that crop. The idea is new to us. As
long ago as J 825, wo saw this method
practiced in Vermont, Bnd it was reported
highly successful, but for soma reason it
has not come into general use. The ex
periments we saw tried by selecting a
short pasiure field, dropping the seeds at
suitable distances over the ground, and
then covering the whole with a coat of
straw to the depth of a foot or more. In
the fall the straw was raked and the po^
titoe* picked up. all dry. I a wet season
this i'lan was thought to be very effec
tive. The edi'.or uf the Pike county (Illi
nois,) Free Press has been presented
iv iih potatoes raised the last season by
Mr. Shipmnn. of -that vicinity, and de?
v.ils as follows :
Mr. -Shipmati informs us that he plant
ed tht tn in the usual manner, then cov
ered them to the depth of about six in
cites with straw ; after this no further
cultivation was required?the straw ke^t
down the weeds and the potatoes were
not disturbed until they were dug. Not
only has this method brought him a su
perior pot aloe, but it l;as brought him an
extraordinary yield?four bushels to the
square rod. Or at the rate of six hundred
and forty bushels to the acre.
He lias tried this mode of culture for
three years past, and has found it in ev
ery instance to bring results superior to
the common method. This year he has
planted at least three different times,
with the following results :
Early in April, ha planted Meshanocks
in both ways, aud Pinkeyes under the
straw ; nil were in the same kind of
gro'im'. The Meshnnocks cultivated yield
ed two bushels nnd one peck to the
square roil ; those covered with straw,
four bushels and one peck, and the pink
eyes covered, lour bushels.
The Pinkeys, planted on the 24th of
May, covered with straw, yielded two
and a half bushels and four quarts to the
square rod. They were the smallest po
Pinkeyes planted about the last of
June, covered, brought two bushels and
one quart to ilie square rod. These, nl
though the smallest y ield, were the lar
gest potatoes, and of the best quality.

The Casumkre Goat?The Philadel
phia Ledger savs the Thibet goat, from
whose wool the famous Cashmere shawls
are made, has been introduced success
fully into the United States. This enter
prising undertaking was achieved a few
years since, after many difficulties, by Dr.
J. B. Davis, of Columbus, S. C., at the
time employed by the Ottoman Porte in
experimenting on the growth of cotton in
the S iltan's dominions. Dr. Davis suc
ceeded, at vast expense in securing ele
veil of the pure breed, which, on his way
home, he exhibited in London and Paris.
Since that period the goat has been intro
duced from South Carolina to Tennessee,
where it is said to thrive. The value of
a flock may be estimated from the fact
that no real Thibet goat has ever been
sold for less than a thousand dollars.
This enormous price, moreover, is not a
speculative one, for no fleeced animal has
wool of such fineness, softness nnd dura
bility. The wool of a'Thibet goat of
Tennessee, lor example, has been engag
ed at New York, this year, at eight and a
half per pound, the purchaser designing
to Bend it to Paisely, in Scotland, in order
to be manufactured into shawls.
Several of these beautiful animals pur
chased from Dr. Davis, are now in pos
session of Col. Braxton Davenport of
Jefferson County.? Spirit.
Lime on Grassland.?An application
of lime has frequently a very beneficial
effect on grassland. It kill* heath, moss
and sour and bentley(ctgrostis) grasses,
and brings up a sweet and tender her?
bage, mixed with white and red clover,
moru greedily eaten and more nourishing
to cattle. Indeed, all fodder, whether
natural or artificial, is said to be sounder
r.nJ more nourishing, when grown upon
lantl to iv'ji'-h linio has been abundantly
applied On benty grass the richest an
i!j;al ;.:?nure often produces little benefit
until a dressing of lime has been laid on.
V 1ST Cabbages, to preserve them
throughout the winter, must be set in soil,
just dirt enough thrown around to cover
tho roots. Oilier vegetables, such as
beets, carrots, parsnips, vegetable oys
ters, ?fcc., may be preserved in boxes till
ed with soil. Ouions require a dry and
cool phice, but not exposed to frost.
Pumpkins and squashes may be well pre
served in any place tolerably drj and
witrm. Diied pumj kins, squashes and
apples should have a dry place, as should
all other dried fruits.
Jt-if Posts and stakes for fencing, should
be cut.peeled.and have the surfaceof those
parts intended to be inserted in the soil,
charred. This will greatly enhance the
Actual value of the same by preventing
decay. Set them top down, and they
will last a great deal longer than if set
the other way.
Broadcast Corx.?As your pastures will
be given out in August and September, it
would be well to put a few acres in Indi
an corn, sown broad cast, in order that
you may have provender to soil your stook
upon. An acre will grow food enough
for 10 bead of stotk. In the preparation
of the ground, manure liberally, plough
deep, and harrow and roll till you get a
perfectly fine tilth ; then sow on each acre
of ground three bushells of corn, harrow
and cross harrow that in, and then roll
Wkkds?Allow no weeds to mature on
your cultivated lands ; cradle all and de
stroy them thoroughly, for one weed will
be sufficient for the perpetuation of its
hind, an will fonl a greater extent of sur
face than can be cleansed effectually in a

compost heaps, and when used for this

DR. SMITH would rospeetfully inform his
friends and the public that he continues to
be confidentially consulted at his old established
Medical House. No. 16. South Frederick street,
on all diseases of A PRIVATE OR DELICATE
NATURE. His long experience and attention
to this class of complaints; his safe and speedy
method of treatment, and his extraordinary suo
cexs during a long and extensive praotioe, ena
bles him, confidentially, to promise all persons
so afflioted, a safe and radioal cure, without in
jury to the constitution or confinement from bu
siness. By a long course of study and practical
experience, Dr. S. has now tho gratification of
Eresenting tho uafortunato with remedies that
avo never failed'since ho first Introduced thorn,1
to cure the most alarming case, and that in a ve
ry short but reasonable time2 without tho aid of
mercury or any other deletorious drug. Within
the lust ton years Dr. S. has cured more than
thirty thousand easesof tho above oharaoter, and
it may bo safely said that kobb thai* os? iiai.?
of the patients had been previously treatod with
morcury and other mineral poisons by somo for
eign or nativo pretender to tho healing art.
Dr. Smith does not'profess to bo a Parisian, or
a graduate of any London or Parisian hospital.
Ho bolieves the United States can procure physi
cians as capable of curing disease, "no matter
how difficult," as any foroignor who has been
compelled to leave his own country because his
boasted skill and wonderful discoveries in medi
cine havo failed to afford him u living at home.
Let the unfortunate bear in mind, whon affliction
overtakes him, that no time should bo lost in ma
king application to a compctont physician, as
they would not only obtaia rolief from pain,
avoid mortification through oxposnre, and elude
groat constitutional injury, butenablo therr med
ioal assistant to be moro moderate in his charges
than ho could justly bo whore symptoms have
boeomo confirmed or the disease mere widely dif
fused. The rapid advances of this truly torrify
ing disease is sufficient to alarm tho boldest
hourt. When ulceration and discolored blotch
es, with racking pains, betray to the unhappy
victim thodeadly poison preying upon his-vitals,
then, "and not till then," do many awake to a
full sense of thoir danger.
Youno Men and otbera.afflictod with a Seminal
Debility^ whether origininating from a certain
destructive habit, or from any other cause, with
the train of bodily and mental evils which fol
low, when neglected, should make an oarly ap
plication, with the full assurunce that they can
bo speedily restored to sound health and tirm vig
or. This is on6 of the groatest ovils that can be
fall man, nnd has doomed thousands of tho hu
man raco to untimely graves; blastod the bril
liant hopes of parents; and blightod, in tho bud,
tho noble ambition of many an aspiring youth.
Dyspepsia, weakness of the Dack, eyes anil limbs,
palpitation of the heart, dizziness, forgotfulness,

IiiroT.ENCE?lurujasANCE.?One of tho most
frequent penalties paid by thoso who give unre
straiued liconse to their passions is a loss of vi
rile power. The young, unaware of the fearful
results that inav ensue, are but too apt to com
mit excesses. Impotency may, and doos, occur
from stricture, gravel, deposites iu thonrine, and
from many other causes; but by far tho most fro
quent source of it is an abuse of tho sexual or
gans, by excossivo venory or self-pollution?par
ticularly the last. Too groat oxcitomont of tho
genital organs is, however, productive of othor
otfacts, besides premature impotency; it tonds to
derange tho digestive functions, anil weaken tho
physical and mental jiowors. Thus parents and
others are often deeoivod as to the true source of
tho complaints of tho youth and young men. It
could be shown how attenuation of the frame,
palpitation of tho heart, dcrungemont of the ner
vous system, cougli, indigestion, and a train of
symptoms, indicativo of consumption, are often
ascribod to wrong causes, whon, in reality, tlioy
are the consoquonccs of an alluring and perni
cious practico, alike destructive to tho mind and
Dr. Smith has givon particular attention to
tho euro of female complaints. His rnothod of
treating Suppression, Irregularities, and othor
complaints peculiar to thoir sex, is safe,and sol
dom requires but a short time to euro. Patients
can bo curod at homo by addressing a letter to
Dr. Smith, doseribing symptoms, and rocoive

complaints will do well to avoid boasting impos
tors, whether foreign or nativo, as also tho nu
merous specifics, advortisod as a certain euro for
any'and every disease. Thoso preparations aro
put Up to sell but not to cure, and frequently do
much more harm than good, therefore avoid
them. A word to tho wise is sufficient. <1

Glorioti^fews .
._^iepras. On
rations to the publio. the proprietoraare aware
of the prejudices which they most oxgect to en
counter. The oo on try is deluged with quack
nostrums, each claiming to bo tlio no pins ultra
?the medicine of all medicines?and are pushed
into notice by the aid of printer's ink, with a
zeal worthy of a better cause, notwith standing all
that has been said and the essays written against
their use by the. profession, .and^-ont of the pro
fession. Indeed so prevalent has beoomo the
mania for quackery, that a recent writer, a man
of eminenoe in the medical .professionstrongly
advises thatthe subject be let alone. -'It exists,
says he," In every walk and occupation of lift,
by the exercise of which men procure bread,"
and thinks it timo wasted to endeavor to stem
the tide.
We have long Blnee thought that the only ef
fectual method of counteracting this strong cur
rent of quackery was to place In the hands of the
[ people, regular medfoinas, prepared in aocordanoe
[ with tho rules of pharmacy!, ' -I, Li.
When our prairies and mountains oatoh fire,
and the inhabitants behold, the Afl'imring ele
)<nent sweeping "towards their devoted homes,
what do they do t "Do they vainly'endeavor to
stop its progress by throwing a few buoketa of
water upon it I By no means ? Thoy build up
oounter-fires which rnsV forth 'to meet the ap
.proaching torrent of flume, and by exhausting
its l'ood, put a stop to its' ravages, or tarn it ou -
of its course. Now this is precisely what wo are
trying to do: The counter-fire which we are
kindling, consists in presenting to the public, me
idielnes which are prepared according to the
laws of Scionce, from the boat of drugq, and un
dor the superintcdnence of a regular'phvsicihn.
For testimonials of their efficacy in the treat
ment of tlw'various diseases for which they are
rocommcndcd, wo would refer to all that havo
ever used of them. We briug/orward no certi
ficates from obsure ifldlviauals, stating that
they have boen cured of all manner ofinourahlo;
diseases. dObming it an insult to the intelligence,
of the community to try to palm ..off such stuff
upon them. If theso medicine* ore a humbug
then modical scionce is a humbug.
K|ieuuiatic Ijinbrocntion.
Is confidently rooomiuonded to invalids as un
aurpassod by any known preparation for the
cure of Spaaips, Old Soros, and swelling of all
kinds." Indeod it has no superior whore an out

foctly magical powor appoars to bo over all U1
cers, and oronic casosof Khcumatism, that havo
resiated all other remedies for yoars. (It never
having been known to fall oven onoo in the course

able medicino in many complaints to which fe

In fact it is unexcelled, if equallod by anv other
preparation known, for tho cure of all diseases
arising from cold.
Tbe Neutralising Cordial, or Physic.
This is one of tho most valuable preparations
known, for cholera morbus, cholera infantum,
or summer complaint of children, diarrhiea,

Afflicted Head !
tablished twenty-two years ago bv Dr.
KINEL1N, comer of Third and Union Street,
j Philadelphia, l'a. Twenty-two yoars" experi
ence has rendered Dr. K. a most successful prac
titioner in tho cure of all diseases of a private
nature ; manhood's dobility, as an impediment
to marriago ; nervous sexual infirmities, disea
ses of the skin, and thoso arising from auuse of
I mercury.
Thoro is an ovil habit nomotimoa indulged in
by boys, in solitude, often growing up with thorn
to manhood ; and which if not roformed in duo
timo, not only begets serious obstaulos'to ruatrl
monial happiness, but gives rise to a scries of
protractod, insidious, und devastating affections.
Fow of thoso who give way to this pernicious
practice aro aware of the consequcticos, nntil
they tind the nervous system shuttered, feel
strange und unaccountable sensations, und vaguo
fours in the mind. (See pages, 27, 23,'i9, of Dr.
K.'s book on Self-Preservation."
The unfortunate thus affected booomea feeble,
is unable to lubor with accustomed vigor, or to
apply his mind to study, his stop is tardy and
woak ; ho is dull, irresolute, and ongagos oven
in his sports with less energy than usual.
If he emancipate himself before the practico
has dono it's worst, and entur matrimony, hiu
marriage is unfruitlul, and his sense tolls him
thnt this is eausoJ by his curly follios. Those
are considerations which should awaken the at
tention of all who are similarly situated.
Romember, he who places himself undor Dr.
Kinoliu's treatment;, may religiously oonflde in
his honor as u gontloman, and rely upon the as
surance, that the secrets of Dr. K.'s patients will
never be disclosed.
