Ashes Wanted.
Fight cents per bushel ior field, and
ten cents for house Ashes, will be given,
in Dry Goods, at the Subscriber’s Store.
Care must be taken to keep those made
in the field from a mixture of earth.; It
is computed that one acre will produce
five hundred bushels.
Those who live at a distance, will find
an advantage in reducing the Ashts to
biack Salts, for which three dollars per
hundred weight v. ill be given. As every
Fanner is provided with sugar-kettles,
! leaching the Ashes and reducing the ley
to .;lack Salts, will be attended with very
little trouble or expence. To obtain
L'i.~ck Salts, set a leac h tub, as in making
sr ap. When a sufficient quantity of ley
is obtained, begin to boil down,and keep
up the evaporation bv putting in cold
ley. When i. is intended to dry o.v the
Saits, stop supplying the evaporation ;
and \\ iun the Salts are reduced to the
consistency of brown sugar, take them
off, and put them into coolers. When
cooled,they should be kepi from the air.
Only the first running of ley ought to be
boiled down. The second and third run
nings should be reserved for a fresh
quantity of Ashes.
