No other cereal jieiils so perfect a food as j
who it, because it families in fitting proportions
and pUntUe form, those fl,h-f arming, heat
supporting mud foroe-yieM.ng constituents need
ful to sustain life and vigorous strength. It is
recognize-J as one of the first necessaries of chll
ited life, and the importance of the crop is to
fully appreciated as to render unnecessary anj
extended remarks on this point. ,
The perfect culture of wheat requires tie
highest exercise of skill on the part of the agri
culturist. This !s none the less true because
thousands of acres jielding plentiful hurests
are grown every year bj individuals totally ig
norant of the principles that underlie the saill
ful growing of the plant
Virgin coils, with very rare exceptions, con
tain all the dements necessary fur the wheat
crop, but, from the very first, the growing of
wheat in this country has been upon the prici
ple of exhausting all, and returning none of
these elements; hence we find that the march cf
full crops is always close upon the heels of new
settlements. The time was when Vermont pro
duced its own wheat; and it is within the recol
lection of many of our readers, that we only
wentto Tork State" foritisthe "Genessee
country at that time being supposed capable
of yielding almost 4inexhaus.ble supplies, where
as we now go beyond the Mississippi for some
portion of it. In i860, or more properly in
1859, with a population of 315,008, Vermont
produced 431,127 bushels of wheat It is gen
erally estimate! that each individual requires a
barrel of flour per annum; which would require
from sources outside cf the State 1,014,403
' bushels of wheat; but placing the estimate at four
bushels of wheat we believe to be more nearly
correct in a farming community, where coarse
bretdstuffr are much used and an abundance cf
milk and vegetables are always at hand, there
was a deficit cf T29.-G5 bushels to be made up
by importation. In the Report of the Depart
ment of Agriculture fur 18C7 the wheat crop cf
Vermont is estimated at 700,000 bushel; but ah
we happen to know something of the manner
In which these estimates are procured we do not
place any confience whatever in them. On the
other hand we are told by dealers in flour that
the sales in the State during the year 1S08 were
largely in excess of those of ISfiO. Of course
the farmers of Vermont who consume all this
foreign whsat raise something else to sell to ena
ble them to buy it, and although it may seem to
them to be good policy to pursue that course,
yet it is the experience of every old country that
it is a most ruinous policy. There are of course
places ani circumstances where specific cropping
and the use of specific manures is justifiable and
to be recommended; but as a rule a judicious
rotation which will afford the firmer all the
various crops that he desires to consume on his
farm will in the long run be found most profit
able and least exhaustive of the elements cf fer
tility in the soil.
Many expedients have been resorted to for
keeping up or rather for restoring the fertility
cf wheat soil and many vague theories promul
gated. In England, from an average of thirteen
bushels to the acre, the crop has been increased,
to about thirty bushels by the use of guano.
Hon. George Gcddes of Onondaga Co., N. Y.,
thinks it perfectly practicable to keep up the fer
tility of the soil and constantly raise heavy
crops in rotation by applying clover seed and
gypsum. The long roots of the clover bring to
the surface the fertilizing agents that are below
the reach of other plants, and the broad leaves
absorb others from the atmosphere, and the de
caying roots furnish very complete food for the
wheat plant From 25 to 28 bushels is an aver
age crop under his treatment. He says: "The
agriculture of Onondaga County is based on
the clover plant,TWoium pratenxa. It is used
' fur hay, for pasture, and for manure."
Joseph Harris, formerly editor of the Gen
essee Farmer, says : There has Jeen much
said about the exhaustion of our soils, but this
one thing is 'certain; as lon as we can grow
good crops of clover, the soil is capable of grow
ing, so fir as the constituents of the plant are
concerned, good cropt cf tchcat. It is not neces
sary to discuss that point at this time. Every
obserting man knows that with very rare ex
tions the soils of Vermont, ranging all the way
from sand to clay, will grow first rate crops of
wheat if properly treated. There is some little
danger of its being Injured by insects, but John
Johnston says that, if plenty of manure is ap
plied to the soil there is but little danger
from that source. He says, moreover, "."tl
that it needed to inture good crept of wheat
it more and better manure.
But this is just where a large majority of
farmers are at faults; lacking the necesrary
k. owledge, skill, or care they do not know the
cajnbUU.es or recqutrements cf their soils, and
they as often make unprofitable applications cf
manure as otherwise. "Stable manure is
claimed to be a universal specific for all soils and
crops; but as more generally applied among us
in its crude, uncomposted state, it tends to an
excessive production of straw and weeds rather
than of grain. The remedy for this is in
thoroughly composting the manure. Although
the soils of western Vermont are supposed to con
tain sufficient lime for most crops, applications
of that substance have frequently resulted in
improved crops. On this subject Prod Way
sajs: Much money was at one time wasted
in liming imperfectly drained land, and there is
still considerable scope for improvement in this
respect Drain first and (when necessary) lime
afterwards, is an agricultural axium that should
form the motto of every farmer who trouU wish ; " "V c?nt'acra"'J: , " , V .1

Todd, in jhla " Wheat Cullurittt, says : "If
there is any cue practice among American firm
er for which'they deserve sharp rebuVe, it is
for permitting such immcLse quantities of bones
to be exported for the improvement of the agri- !
culture of foreign natiens. Thousands of tons
of bones are collected annually in Chicago, But !
lido, New York, and other populous cities, and
shipped to foreign countries to fertilixe the land
for raielng turnips; wheat, fat cattle, tnd sheep. '
And yet, Americin farmers. In stupid quietude '
look on and say : It don't pay to collect bon-s ;
and apply them to the soil
It will pay. They have not tested the ap
plication of ground bone. There is not a meadow
nor a pasture in the land with rery few excep
tions that will not be greatly bentfited by a
drwsiug of ground raw bone. Thousands of
acre of tic beet farming Und in New England
are in a lew state of Impoverishment for the
l want of a liberal dressing cf raw ground bone.
( Such fertilizing matter is the very life of ths soiL
European farmers -understand and appreciate
this lact They know It pays to ship bones from
America to enrich their farms. The value of
every ship-load cf bones that is picked from our
land cannot readily be computed in dollars and
cents to the agriculture of our country. En
gland delights in her own fatness produced on
the choice theese of American dairies, while we
mutter and grumble over a pot of whey. Euro
peans rejoice over the rich, sweet American but
ter while we are so unaccountably stupid as to
be sat;sfied with the butter-milk. Our farmers
di" and delve, and rake and scrape their grain-
fields, meadows and pastures to get phosphotic-
frrtilizcrs to send to Europe to produce big crops
of turnips, and then grumble and denounce their
own lands as go 3d for nothing, because their tur
nips refuse to grow as they do in eastern coun
tries. The truth on this point is, American farmers
must save and apply more manure to their im
poverished land ; especially must they save
bones for growing a crop of turnips. As soon as
we can produce a bountiful crop of turnips we
can grow wheat Wheat and turnips in Eng
land go hand in hand. And when the wheat so Is
of America are rendered sufficiently fertile to pro
duce a crop of turnips, we may have the emi
nent satisfaction of seeing bountiful crops of
choice wheat, where now the yield will scarcely
defray the expenses cf harvesting and thrashing
the crop. Sometin.cs the farmer will have to
cultivate several years before he can produce
In addition to the mineral elements required,
wheit demands a larger supply of nitrogen for
vigorous growth than almost any other crop.
I. B. Lawcs, of England, in his long scries of
experiments, ascertained conclusively that where
every mineral tlement was in the soil necessary
for a maximum crop of wheat, the yield on an
acre was doubled by the aid of two hundred
pounds of sulphate of ammonia alone. Although
it requires much more nitrogenized manure to
produce a crop of any of the cereals than of the
lezuminous plants, such as clover, peas, beans,
c, it is found that neither the stalks nor the
seeds cf the cereals contain any thing like the
proportion of nitrogen that those cf the lequ
minosa do, hence Mr. Lawes concludes tint the
nitrogenized compound are used up in rendering
soluble some other matters contained in the soil
and converting them into plant food.
Todl says : The result of these experiments
should teach' grain-growing farmers the great
importance of also growing red clover and other
lequminous plants, whiclfcollcct most of their
nitrogen from the dew' rain, and air, and yet
retain it in their tissues to twice the amount that
it is found in the cereal grasses. Thus, clover,
peas, beans, etc., whether ploughed under in the
green state, or fed to animals and the manure
applied to the soil, are nearly thrice the value
of manure made from the cereal grasses.
Hon. Geo. Geddessays cf the use of clover:
The eftcner we can fill the soil with roots, and
then plough them under, and thus allow them
to rot, the sooner we expect to get our land in
condition to crop with grain. Clover is a bien
nial, and two years is all that one seeding should
V. heat growing upon soA lands is not general
y recommended, but upon a clover lea it suc
ceeds very well and generally has the advantage
of being free from weeds and grasses.
The further consideration of this subject is
necessarily deferred till next week.

HiNtTiCTCRE Of MAI 'LI SUGAR.
Horace Goodhue. I um a half inch bit to
tap my- eugar trees with. I think it large
enough, if you uee larger the wound is not as
soon healed over, the using of larger bit may
run more rap. but not enough to pay. I have
Iwred three inches deep, and one and a half
inch aeep. ana l hnotc tuclormer method will
yield as much again as the latter, and others
in mr vicinity will onch for the mme. I
cmiorte the sentiment of the club as reported
last week, (cleanliness and dL? patch.) To
make nice sugar execute the work as won as
to&eible. When I have boiled my sap down
to good molasses, I put a pail full of cold tap
into it, and three eggs beat up to raise a scum
and skim it before I take it from the fire to
strain. It fares time. I use the" Felt Hat"
train.r, and thick tyrup does not pass through
readily,. if wraicwbat dirty; then put it
hack over the fire, and to ascertain when it is
done enough, I try it upon snow, and wlien
cold, and it breaks like glafs, I call it done.
jubenczcr Hall Most all have different
methods. I approve of the method of boring
with J inch b!t,aid boi e 3 v chedeep 2 in will
do for small trees. I think it hurts tree to
tap them, especially if we put two spouts into
Email trees, they will not lear it. I know it
is practiced, till I tsbmk I can get nearly as
much sap from one epout. Hut if you wish
to leave nu inheritance in the sugar orchard
to the next generation, then tap away, but it
is poir policy, and ignoble. Keep the cap
clean, and lioil it into sugar as noon as pos
sible, fcugar oft twice a day. I practiced tell
ing my sugar in molasses. I use the " Felt
hat" for the strainer, straining the syrup
when quite thin, for if thick it is difficult to
! run it through, then rebuil and strain through
flannel. If I make it into sugar, I do so as
soon as convenient, not let it cool. I think
the41 Evaporator" it what we want. It don't
boil it over and over. Again I think there
is a difference in sugar orchards from their
location. I have one upon low wet land, and
another upon high rocky land. The Jatter
makes the best sugar. Trees standing in dif
ferent soils, produce sugar of different color
Question by Mr. Goodhue. Whcndjou
know you bate boiled your syrup to proper
consistency for your merchantable irolasscs?

ecdiment than other?, lbe concreting ol a
species of lime npon the bottom of the pan.
But it is after all sited rap that makes white
sugar, for it needs Ices Iwiling.
I would pet nothing in to raise the scum,
if I could strain It, but if difficult, 1 put in
eggs and milk, and pursue the same courte
as, Mr. uooijue in liDisiiing tucworc. as to

I never would skim if I could strain. I think
