W every species of . matter ca iable o f pronoting the growth of vegetables, ny be considered as a mannre. Decayt ~ng animal-amisvegetable substancaes- cot stituto by far the .most inportant cla;ss of manures. or vegetable food. Vegvetbl.1 and nimal substances deposited in the sttil, tre constimLed during the process of vege. tation;,talnthey can only nourish th 0-.1ln A.y aflording solid matters capable of being <lissolved in Water, or gaseouis ssitanicea as .oapaile of being absorbed by the fluid. in the leaves.of -vegetables. The great obb ject, therefore, in the application of manure, -shotild be to make it afford as much soil tile matter its possible to tile roots of the -plans,. and that inl a slow and gradual mani. nter. so that it may be entirely consuimed iln 1_rming itasap and organized purts. Mucilagtious, gelatinous, saccharine, oily, and extractive fluids, are substances ohut in thicir anchanged states coainal al-' inost all the principles necessary for t:.e life of plants; but there are few cases where they can be applied as manuies in their pure forms. All green succuleti plants con t ai n1 sa Celan ri ne, or mu ucilia gi ni us miatter, -%ilh wv'oo!y fibre, and readily frianet. They cannot, therefore, if intended fior mianire, be tsed too soon after their death. Hience the advantage of plowing in greena crops, whether natural or suwi .tr the pur Uose; they muIst. not, however, be turned ii oo deep, otherniso fermentatiaon will lie prevrenteti by compressioan and exclusiaaon of air. Green crops should be duig in, it' it lie possible, when in Ilower, or at the time the flower begins to appear: for it is at this periol that they' Coiait the largest quantity of easily solubie matter, ad that their leaves are most active in foraning nuii tritive matter. Yeast is one of the mtaist poiweftil and durable of all matiures. Un fortunately. tie article is too expentive to le much tised r;r this purpose, but it will well pay for a trial on fine plants. Fish forms a powerful manure, in what. ever state'it is applied; but it canoat be atsed too fresh, thiugh-the quantity should - ie limited. The skin of tile fish Is prit1nei I:dly gelatine, which, ft in its slight saile of cohesion, is readily soluble in watter; h liev contain also fait ;ar oil, either under he'skin or ii some of the viscera, ane d their fibrous matter contains all the essential lements of vegetable substances. Bolles are also much usei. These aro .gtound in a mill and applied to the land ill fA orm of Powder or dust. .*Sea-weedl is much usedl on the sa-coast ats a manure. It is very' trtasient ina its a..I 1feets; buat is nueverthaeless aif muttch v 'aaae in situatiaos whlere it can be obtainedl. T'he most common method of using it, is ta) catni vey it directly to tihe land, anmd arppl it fresh ats a top-alressinag t) tihe groiwinag craaps. If nlot applied in its recent statec, it shoulbl bae formned into a compost with duung, or wvitht at mixture of that-anda earth. Peat is a substance which may hec uised as a manure; but unless freedl of its tacidl p rinciple it mayfl remain for-years e'xposeda toi yater aind air wvithotit tundeergoinig alecom. position, int whichi slate it can tafford ane nouaitrishamentI to plants. It shtould, there-Ci t'ore, be madle to undergo dlecomnpostioan befaore it is appliedl to the soil. Th'Iis mayt be done by. haong expiosuare to the air, or b tai x'ng it with newly-muade and caamp jlet.-l' slacked limea which adecomposes than wo'yaai fibre~s, andl forms a kind of complhost whaic'h is of soime value.
