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
Beets and Carrots*
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®
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

Prosiirrtii* of'the Kcpublic.
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.

all parts of the Union, who
