Change of Soil and Change ol
Seeds. It is the general practice to extol the beneficial effects arising from using seed wheat that has bten grown at some dis tance, when—which is not always —ben- efit really accrues, to the mere change of seed more than anything else. Indeed, so little is the modus operandi by which improvement is produced, considered, that all the explanation wo get of the matter, usually, is, that "seed does bet ter changed from one part of the country to another."*' Now, according to my views —which arc the result of thirty years' experience, in various circumstances, iu wheat culture —a mere change of seed, unless other conditions also are different, lias very little if any necessarily beneficial effect on the resultaDt product of the crop.' Still, I hold that seed should be procured 1 from other localities, or changed, because' by this course tendencies not desirable, of au} kind, may be materially checked j or corrected by conditions whose eufiu cr.ce is to war a a different effect. In the Prairie Farmer of March 7, Pr. N. W. Abbott says he " got ol bush els of wheat per acre more by procuring! heed, of the club variety, from lowa, last reason." But whether there was a change j of soil in this case, we are not informed by him. I judge, however, there must 1 ave been, because a mere change of seed, , of itself, from one locality to another, where the soil and climate are essentially the same, affords no apparent reason for advantage. For iustauce, if seed be chaug ed from white oak loam—probably the best wheat soil we have—in Canada West, to the same quality of soil in New York : is thorcaaythiugof the nature of real change, other than that of the differences of lati tude or longitude involved in the process? I trow not. If the soil be the same nat urally and iu fertility, I contend that no more benefit necessarily follows a change of three hundred than of only three miles, more or less, iu distance. For the same qualify of soil, in the same season, with similar weather aod climate, can not read ily he supposed to produce essentially different effects and transmissablc quali ties in the same sort of grain. It may be earlier or later, heavier or lighter, &c., but its essential or vital characteristics will be quite similar or nearly identical. It, therefore, benefits result, as there are good reasons to believe is the case, they flow from some other causes, more influ ential though closely connected, besides the change of seel alone, whether from far or near. It has been abundantly proved by the experience of farmers] past and present, that change is often beneficial; and some times it is not only no benefit, but an in jury. This I have seen illustrated in abundant iustancis. And such facts seem to confirm the view that it is not a chauge of seed ouly that is necessary, but lhat there must be, moreover, a change ofso'l, as an indispensable condition to improvement. Let us briefly note a few facts which seem to exhibit the reason why this must be so. When wheat is grown on soils essen-' tially different in texture and composi tion, tho nature of the soil affects the; cjuality of the wheat, in all parts and charac'eristics of its structure, produced i on such different qualities of land. On i peaty and mucky soils, for instance —if : in tolerable condition as to fertility, or' ability to bear a full crop—the straw will; l.c larger, softer, inure flexible, and much ; more liable to lodge, in consequence of! the comparative scarcity of silica in its various tonus j and the ears will not li.l to well, uor wilt the berry be so plump, or the yield, io proportion to straw, &c., ho good as where the straw is stiff, and ihe & crop stands up even and well. Much of the prairie laud of the west, lrom its deficiency in silecu, produces crops with such characteristics. On the other hand, sands and gravelly soils and sandy loams have an abundance of snica, and their generally stand up and till well, though the heads are not always large, the soil not being rich enough to do much j work, and do it well, too. It sometimes i also the fact that soils with ample st lcea are defective as to lime, which is a prime essential of wheat culture, and with which a good share of western prairie g >iis are well provided. I shall consider then, that within my observation, as a general rule, soils that abound in silica are deficient in litre, and that mucky soils usually have too little of silica. Strong loauis have a fair pro ; portionate supplv of both silica and lime, and tnav be properly considered the best wheat soils, as they produce the best tim ber—white oak—also, they comprehend nil the necessary qualities, arc represent atives, as it were If we change seed irom a mucky prai rie in Illinois to a like quality of land in Wisconsin or Michigan, of what avail wiil it be? or what detect or tendency will it correct ? If beat lias becn g rowu four or five seasons on such a soil, the tendency to produce weak straw, and to lod-c, rust, shrink, &c M will be strength ened and gradually increased, as it is true of quality in animals; for the influences which impart, transmit and augment present defects, remain in active opera tion I argue, therefore, that a change of longitude or latitude merely, from any bind of soil to a similar one, is no change essentially , but a mere transfer from like 10 Again : If we bring seed from a fertile prairie soil, with a bare sufficiency of si lica but an abundance of lime, and sow 11 on a sandy loam, where liuie is mon acaroe than it was in the mucky land, cat we expect any benefit? I see not wbj we should; for we relinquish the mor, essential ingredient (lime,) for one v sand less urgently required ID the formation and production of the seed-berry, the most essential part of the product. To procure seed from muc-'/y soils with ample lime, to plant on soils deficient in this alkali, can not result in any benefit, therefore, a3 I view it. For the seed so transferred comes iuto less instead of more favorable conditions, —has uiore of the has import ant silica to perfect its straw, but less and not enough usually, of the more necessary lime, tuagne.-ia, and cognates, to perfect its more vital and valuable seed- Some of the conclusions I arrive at may be roughly stated as follows : —Our strong ioauis—white oak lands being their type —are the most complete wheat soils, sup plying all the Deeessary conditions tor a perfect product, which will tend to re produce itself if not checked by adverse cuuditions. Buc a comparatively defect ive soil, either as to lime, sand, the phos phates, or otherwise, would check this tendency. A change from such a soil to loamy or mucky land could be no ad vantage, but the contrary; a change of seed from rich prairie to light loam soil can secure no good result, be cause the more important lime is uot pres eut, however silica may abound. On the other hand, if there be au im portant improvement of conditions to the seed, in the change of soil, —as for in stance, from a sandy loam, deficient in lime, to black limestone prairie,—the less vital silicia of the former will be greatly overbalanced by the advantage of suffi cient lime, and its compounds, for the production of prime seed-heads. A change of so/7, from either light veg etable mold or thin sandy soil to a strong loam—not the contrary —is a good change, because the seed goes from comparatively defective to more generally complete con ditions of lull growth and maturity, either as to straw or berry. Usually there can, I believe, be no advantage—and I have seen these conclusions practically tes'ed in various instances —iu changing from a soil rich in lime to one defective as to this ingredient. But the opposite of this, as I have ofteu seen, is a good ehauge. From lighter to stronger soils of the same O C general composition — not the contrary — is a good change. Generally, a transfer of seed from sandy to mucky soils— not the contrary —is productive of decided benefit to the product. Ou the best strong loam wheat soils, the tendency to improve is itself checked, in some in stances probably because the best condi tions and most perfect product have been nearly attained, or from a long uniformi ty of conditions causing the habits of the plant to become comparatively "fixed" and difficult to change in any direction ; in which cases, and others that I have not space to particularize, seed from any lighter and less complete soil —the re verse being impracticable —can usually be used with considerable advantage; and an importaut general rule, in procuring seed for the sake of improvement, will be seen to he, to transfer to soils that are less defective, in lime or otherwise: in brief, to change to more complete condi tions of growth and perfection, when im provement may, from the law of like cause like consequence, be reasonably an ticipated.— Genesee Farmer.

D' MOTT'S FILLS IISCS • r % An aperient and Stomachic preparation of IRON purified of Oxygen and Carbon by com bustion in Hydrogen. Sanctioned bv the highest Medical Authorities, both in Europe and the United States, and prescribed in their practice. The experience of thousands daily proves that r.o preparation of Iron can be compared with it. Impurities of the blood, depression of vital energy, pale and otherwise sickly complexions indicates its necessity in almost every conceivable case. Innoxious in all maladies in which it has been tried, it has proved absolutely curative in each of the following complaints, viz : In Debility, Nervous Jffcctions, Emanciations, Dyspepsia, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Dysentery. Incipient Consumption, Scrofulous Tuberculosis. Salt Rheum, Miimcnitruaiioti, Whiles, Chlorosis, Liver Complaints, Chronic Headaches, Rheuma tism, Intermittent livers, Dimples on the Face, to la eases of Goners! Debility, whether the result of acute disease, or of the continued di minution of nervous and muscular energy from chronic complaints, one trial of this res torative has proved successful to an extent which no description nor written attestation would render credible. Invalids so long bed ridden as to have become forgotten in their own neighborhoods, have suddenly re-ap peared in the busy world as if just returned fro in protracted travel in a distant land.— Some very signal instances of this kind are attested to female Sufferers, emaciated victims of apparent marasmus, sanguineous exhaus tion, critical changes, and that complication of nervous and despeptic aversion to air and exercise for which the physician has no name. In Nervous Affections of all kinds, and for reasons familiar to medical men, the operation of this preparation of iron must necessarily be salutary, for unlike the old oxids, it is vig orously tonic without being exciting and overheating; and gently, regularly aperient even in the most obstinate eases of costive ness without ever being a gastric purgative, or inflicting a disagreeable sensation. It is this latter property, among others, which makes it so remarkable effectual and permanent a remedy for Files, upon which it also appears to exert a distinct and specific action, by dispersing the local tendency which forms them. In Dyspepsia, innumerable as are its causes a single box of these Chalybeate I'ilis has of ten sufficed for the most habitual cases, in cluding the attendant Cosfiveness. In unchecked Diarrhoea, even when advanced to Dvsentery, confirmed, emaciating, and ap parently malignant, the effects have been equally decisive and astonishing. In the local pains, loss of flesh and strength, debilitating tough, and remittent hectic,which generally indicate Incipient Consumption, this remedy has allayed the alarm of friends and physicians, in several very gratifying and in teresting instances. Iu Scrofulous Tuberculosis, this medicated iron has had far more than the good effect of the most cautiously balanced preparations of iodine, without any of their well knowu lia bilities. The attention of females cannot be too con fidently invited to this remedy and restorative. in the cases peculiarly affecting tlieni. In Rheumatism, both chronic and inflam matory—in the latter, however, more decid edly—it has been invariably well reported, botli as alleviating pain and reducing the swellings and stillness of the joints and mus cles. In Intermittent Fevers it must nocessarih be a great remedy and energetic restorative, and its progress in the new settlements of the West, wiii probably be one of high renown and usefulness. No remedy has ever been discovered in the whole history of medicine, which exerts such prompt, happy, and fully restorative effects Good appetite, complete digestion, rapid ac quisition of streugth, with an unusual dispo sition for active and cheerful exercise, imme diately follow its use.

MOFFAT'S LIFE FILLS A XJJ PII(EXIX BITTERr 11JIESE MEDICINES have how been befo^a . the public for a period of THIRTY YEARS and during that time have maintained a high character in almost everv part of the Globe for their extraordinary i ni immediate power of restoring perfect health to persons suffering under nearly every kind of disease to which the human frame is liable. The following are among the distressing variety of human diseases in which the Vcftelhble Life Medicines Are well known to be infallible. DYSPEPSIA, by thoroughly cleansing th j first and second stomachs, and creating u flow | of pure healthy bile, instead of the stale and I acrid kind: FLATULENCY, Loss of Appetite, : Heartburn. Headache, Restlessness, 111-Tem per, Anxiety, Languor, and Melancholy, which are the general symptoms of Dyspepsia, will I vanish, as a natural consequence of its cure. COSTIYEN6BB, by cleansing the whole I length of the intestines with a solvent process, I and without violence ; all violent purges leave : the bowels costive within two days. FEVERS of all kinds, by restoring the blood to a regular circulation, through the process |of perspiration in such cases, and the thor \ ougb solution of all intestinal obstruction in ! others. The Life Medicines have been known to : cure RHEUMATISM permanently in three weeks, nnd GOUT in half that time, by re i moving local inflammation from the muscles | and ligaments of the joints. , DROPSIES of all kinds, by freeing and I strengthening the kidneys and bladder; they [operate most delightfully on these important organs, and hence have ever been found a cef* tain remedy for the worst cases of GRAVEL, Also WORMS, by dislodging from the turn ; ings of (he bowels the slimy matter to which ! these creatures adhere. SCURVEY, ULCERS, and INVETERATE SORES, by (he perfect purity which these LIFE .MEDICINES give to the blood, and all the humors. | SCORBUTIC ERUPTIONS and BAD COM PLEXIONS. by (heir effect upon the . fluids that feed the skin, and the morbid state I of which occasions all eruptive complaints, j sallow, cloudy, and other disagreeable com j plexious. The use of these Pills for a very short time, will effect an entire cure of SALT RHEUM, land a striking improvement in the clearness of the skin. COMMON COLDS and INFLU ; ENZA will always he cured by one dose, or | by two in the worst cases. PILES.—The original proprietor of these Medicines, was cured of Piles of 35 years j standing, by the use of the LIFE MEDICINES : alone. FEVER AND AGUE.—For this scourge of the Western country, these Medicines will be (ound a safe, speedy, and certain remedy.— Other medicines leave the system subject to a return of the disease—a cure by these Med j icines is permanent —TRY THEM, IJK SATISFIED, AND BE CL'RED. BILIOUS FEVERS AND LITER COM PLAINTS.—GeneraI I>( bility, Loss of Appe tite, and Diseases of Females—the Medicines have been used with the most beneficirl re sults in cases of this description:—Kings Evil, and Scorfula. in its worst forms, yields to the mild yet powerful uction of these re markable Medicines. Night Sweats, Nervous Debility, Nervous Complaints of all kind 3, Palpitation of the Heart, Painters' Colic, are speedily cured. MERCURIAL DISEASES.— Persons whose constitutions have become impaired by the injudicious use of MEUCCRY, will find these Medicines a perfect cure, as they never fail to eradicate from the system, all the effects of Mercury, infinitely sooner than the most pow erful preparations of Sarsanarilla.
