Plant White Tarnips. We repeat olir advice to you, farmers, to plant turnips. You will need all your spare corn—you that have any to spare— to feed your hogs and horses for the oat crop will amount to nothing. A vast amount of hay has been damaged your straw will be of an inferior quality, and what substitute have you, except turnips By all means plant iu drills, and we would recommend the white varieties. Broad cast sowing does not pay. Haifa pound will seed an acre. Those who have not already planted their turnips, should choose a piece of mellow ground harrow it thoroughly, make furrows from twenty to thirty inches apart, and cover with a brush—letting the horse walk between the rows. Shortly after turnips come up they are liable to be attacked by flies and bugs. Ashes sprinkled upon the plants is a pretty good protection. Light prairie soil, especially if new, is excellent for turnips. As corn is generally thin, it would be well, when there is no other vacant ground, to drill turnips between the rows. They may easily be covered with a garden rake. In gathering the crop, let one person go ahead with a sharp hoe and cut off the tops, and another fol low with a good spade and dig them out. Gather and lay them away the same as potatoes. They will stand considerable frost but should be gathered when you gather winter apples.—Prairie Amp. 6th. Farmer Beets and Carrots* THOSE farmers who raise these crops for winter feed for stock, if they have continued the practice for a number of years, need no arguments to convince them of the economy and value of root crops. The yield per acre of either beets or carrots when put in at the proper sea son on ground rightly prepared and suit ed to their wai.tj, is enormous, wheu com* pared with most other crops. As fc~d for farm houses in winter—a season when tbey are comparatively idle, we would pui fer to feed on half carrots, to all oats or corn, and as with proper culture 500 to 1000 bushels per acre of carrots can be raised on any soil that is rich, deep and light, the saving to the farmers will be at once perceived. We speak from long experience when we urge upon farm ers the importance of paying more atten tion to tbis crop, every where else more' highly valued than at the West. Ani mals are as much benefitted by eating such vegetables in winter as are human beings their health is always improved by change and variety in their daily diet. The great reason why so many farmers are dissatisfied with their attempts to raise these and like crops, is mainly the result of careless culture. To raise fine crops of beets or carrots they should be careful ly thinned out and the cultivator run through the rows once a fortnight at least, from the time the rows can be seen until frost comes. In a season of drouth it will pay to double the dose. Let us hear from the few farmers who do grow these crop® successfully. OTEK THE CELLARS.—Yes, let the cel lar have a good airing in every corner— root bins and every spot where vegetable matter of any sort may have been. If there is a damp or mouldy spot anywhere clear it out keep up a ventilation several days and then whitewash it, sill and post, side wall and ceiling. The cellar is gen erally the part of the house where the master of the house will hold undisputed sway, and here he ought to set an exam ple of neatness, cleanliness, and order, that will not only bo comfort in itself but a practical lesson. How often it is other wise A heap of leaves thus dropped from the decaying cabbages, rotton vege tables of various sorts, rotten boards and nails, old barrels, rusty brine, fish and pork casks, and a thousand and one things are too apt to crowd the corners, and skulking in darkness breed disease in the household, afford nests for vermin, and are no more touched than would be a nest of bumble-bees. Don't let this re main so another day, go with barrow and shovels, and brooms, and finally with whitewash, and make a renovation. PICKLED TOMATOES. Take siilafl smooth tomatoes, not very lipe scald them until the skin will slip off easily, and sprinkle salt over them. After they fetand twenty-four hours, drain off the uice, and pour on a boiling hot pickle, compose*! of one pound of 6ugar to ev «ry quart of vinegar, and two tea-spoons each of eitniamon and cloves. Drain off the liquid, scald it and pour it on them again, cvciy two days for a week, and (Wr will require no further cure.

A sufficient time has elapsed since the inau guration of Mr. Buchanan, to dispel the hopes entertained by many who did not support his election to the presidency, that his administra tion of affairs would be "so, moderate and con servative ns to give repose to a country too long agitated by exciting collisions of opinion and interest. On the contrary, it has leen so far marked by a violence of measures, which is without precedent, even in the administration of Mr. Pierce. In Kansas it has given all its patronage, not merely to a faction detested by the ]»_ople of that Territory, but to tbe most odious men of that faction, some of whom have participated directly in the scenes of violence and bloodshed while it has concentrated the entire disposable army of the United States at Fort Leavenw orth, under the command of a man of known violence of character, for the manifest purpose of intim idating our fellow-citizens there into submis sion to a foreign usurpation, and if intimidation fails, of desolating them with lire and sword. In foreign lifiVirs it does not disgni-e its pur pose to take immense sums from the Treasury to lie ex]tended in the purchase of new Terri tories, while it threatens us with comvlieatioiis nud wars fatal to commerce, in the sole interest of an institution deemed temporary ntid excep tional by the founders of our Government, but which now aspires to an eternity of duration and to universal dominion. The purj o.-e of Mr. Buchanan's Administra tion clearly is to keep up tlmt agitation of the Slavery Question, which was delilierately enter ed upon as n matter of political calculation in lf-54, as the bas is of a new party then formed to control the destinies of the country that agi tation to which Mr. Buchanan owes his own election, and to which those who surround him now look confidently for the perpetuation of their own aower. 1 here are large bodies of our countrymen, in all parts of the Union, who deplore this organi zation of a sectional party at the South, bottom ed upon the revolutionary proceedings of 1854, and still maintained by violent acts, appealing to sectional passions who perceive that it os tracises the moderate and conservative portion of the eitixens of the slave holding Strifes from participation and influence in public affairs and who see in this geographical arrangement of parties the greatest dangers of all kinds, in cluding dangers to the peculiar institution, the sensitiveness of which is so recklessly appealed to by political gamblers. It is ^proposed by the undersigned to estab lisha Newspaper at the city of \Vaahin_rton, in which the views of those oortions of our coun trymen may be reflected. This newspaper ill lie styled The Republic, and will endeavor to maintain a nationality and comprehensiveness of views worthy of its "name. Esteeming as the most imminent, and pressing nalional danger, the attempt to maintain a gt'» graphical jmrty hy pand. ring to the passions of I the slavery propaganda, The Rrj.ullic will reso lately oppose an Administration which has de termined to perpetuate itself bv keeping up a i form of party so drngerous and so odious. An inflexible attachment totheUnion, a rev erence for the Constitution of the United States,' ns the highest achievement of human wisdom' a general conformity as to doubtful ceuistnic- i tions of the Constitution, and as to principles of public administration, to the school of politics illustrated by the genius of Mr. Jefferson pence andjustiee in our foreign relations the eonsoli nation of our civilization at home, rather than! needless, premature or dangerous enlargements of territory the- dedication of our present pub lie detmain ns a theatre for the proa|eroi: indus try of fre emen, anil, with that view, the prohib-! it ion of its transfer except in moderate qnanti I ties to actual settlers. Such, briefly, are the! i principles, feelings and objects which will give tone to The Republic It will lie one of the aims of The Republic to co-operate in reducing the expenditures of the I Government, which have been swoh n to seventy millions per annum by the extravag. nee and I corruption of the party in power. The revenue s of the country are mainly contributed by its free laltor^rs, while its disbursements, of' late! years, have IK-CU made with very little reference I to their interests. Public employments, mili tary, naval and civil, have become more and more engrossed by a peculiar class, which bears I little of the public biu-dcas, and which has thus had a double motive to augment salaries and ex peiiditures. i The publication of The Republic was com-! nienced in September last. The prices and terms of subscription an* given below. It is ex pccieel that a daily pubpeation will be added,' to commence with the next session of Congress. DAMI:L R.
