Selling "Not Walnut." —A farmer in
Burrilville once drove to Providence a load of
green white-birch wood, and after trying in
vain, a greater part of the day, to dispose of
it at a fair price, he unexpectedly met a weal
thy gentleman, who admired the outside ap
pearance, and inquired the name of its species.
The farmer perceiving that the gentleman was
about as green as the wood, answered,
" Not walnut."
" Knot walnut !'' said the gentleman ;
" what kind of wood is that ? I never heard
of it before."
" It is a wood," answered the farmer, " that
will kindle the quickest and last the longest,
* any wood that grows."
"What Uthe price of it?" inquired the
" Seven dollars a cord," answered the far*
"Seven dollars a cord!" exclaimed the
gentleman ; " why I can buy the best hickory
and oak for five."
"What of that?" said the farmer; "you
could bum out two cords of good dry hickory

Not long afterwards, the fanner met the

Cotton Culture.
Some of the incipient thinnings of ootton
will have already been done ; but the bum
of reducing to a stand, yet remains ; and
in this month, this important branch of Cot
ton making is to be attended to Much care
and good judgment is now required, and close
personal attention should see that all is well
don«. The fate of the crop is often settled
adversely, by careless, rough work, at this
time, the cotton plant is very tender, and
by bruises and damages at this working, is
often made to die for weeks after, when other
are sought to explain disasters to the
weed. Too much care cannot be taken to
avoid these results. We have said before,
that the distance must be regulated by the
quality of the soil, and the probable size to
which the plant will grow. We have said
also that the tap root of cotton is the main
feeder. This opinion has been objected to ;
and it is insisted that the main office of this
root is to give strength to the plant. Wc do
not admit our error ; but. that we may not
have been fortunate in making ourselves un
derstood. All for which we have contended
is, that this is the main root, and the parent
from which all other roots emanate; and
whilst wc agree that the lateral roots may in
strictness be the feeders, yet these supplies all
back through the common parent of
them all, to send up their support to the plant;
and our theory only insists that provision
shall be made to encourage the vigorous and
ample growth of the tap root, which we have
termed the great feeder, that it may send out
a large supply of those little rootlets, that
they may search for appropriate food, and
bring it through this common parent, to sup
ply the wants of the stalk.
We have thought it necessary to fall back
upon this explanation, for the better under
standing of the opinions which wc held, and
that we may prepare the minds of our readers
for the care which we shall advise in the cul
ture of cotton, not to disturb these lateral
roots, after they have been formed, by close
deep plowings. At the present age of the
plant, not much damage is to be auticipated,
but as it grows larger, the plow should
further oft and shallower. In lands which
not very soft by nature, or which have
been made so by previous good work, we
should advise, at this time, close and rather
deep plowing. This is the more important to
be done now, because it may be done without
damage to the plant ; and if not now doue,
cannot be safely at any other working. Af
ter the squares appear freely, if the work up
to that time has been well done, no deep or
close plowing» will be required, or should be
allowed, in the culture of cotton.
By bad management, or with very adverse
seasons, cases may arise in which it may be
necessary to depart from this rule. All such
cases present a choice of evils, and the best
which can be done is to choose the least. The
hoe is the great implement for cotton culture,
and must now be used freely aud skillfully.
Only enough dirt should be added at this time
to give a better additional support to the stalk.
Beware of working cotton when the earth is
wet ; and if it is very dry, do not depend
upon killing grass by covering up, lest you
may fiud, when too late, that you have been
deceived in the operation.
Beet Sugar. —Beet sugar is extensively
manufactured in Frauce. Great Britain, in
consequence of deriving a large revenue from
imported sugars, lent no countenance to its
culture in that kingdom. Lately, however, a
company has been formed in Ireland, and the
operations of the Irish Beet Root Sugar Com
pany, at Mount Mellick, are favorably de
scribed. The average crop of beet root in
Ireland is said to be thirty-six tons per acre,
while on the continent it is only sixteen tons;
and it is affirmed that the minimum yield of
saccharine matter is seven and a half per
cent, in raw sugar ; whereas on the continent
seven per cent is the highest. The cost of
the process as carried on at Mount Mellick,
averages £ 6 . 5s. per ton, whereas it averages
£9 per ton abroad. Mount Mellick Beet
Sugar Manufactory employs one hundred and
sixty laborers, two steam engines, and works
about three tons of beet root weekly. It will
commence manufacturing refined sugcr in a
short time.— Farmer.
How to Judge Cattle. —In all domestic
animals, the skin, or the hide forms one of
the best means by which to estimate their
fattening proprieties. In the handling of
oxen, if the hide be found soft and silky to
the touch, it affords proof of tendency to
take on flesh. A beast having a perfect
touch, will have a thick, loose skin, floating
as it were, on a layer of soft fat yielding to
the slightest pressure, and springing back to
wards the finger like a piece of soft leather.
Such a skin will be usually covered with an
abundance of soft glossy hair, feeling like a
bed of moss—and hence is ever termed a mos
sy skin. But a thick-set, hard, soft hair, al
ways qandlcs hard, and indicates a hard
For Cattle and Horses.— Mix
ally one part of salt with four parts of wood
ashes, and give the mixture to different kinds
of stock, summer and winter. It promotes
their appetites and tends to keep them in a
healthy condition. It is said to be good
against bots in horses, murrain in cattle, and
rot in sheep.
The Grtbs in Horses. —A person of
much experience in veterinary science is never
troubled with this disease in horses. His
simple practice during the fall months is to
keep a greasy cloth in the stable, and once a
week ruD with it such parts of the animals as
may have been attacked by the nitflv. Grease
destroys and prevents the eggs from hatching.
Household Measures. —In the. absence

relative measures and weights of articles in

lady readers:

Wild Cherry.
A Truly Wonderful Cure.
Dkckmbeh 25tb, 1848.
Dr. Surnym: ..
Dear Sir—Having contracted a severe cold,
which settled upon my lungs, attended with a
lent cough, pain in my side and breast, difficulty of
breathing, I was attended by physicians of the
first respectability, but my symptom» became very
alarming, there was an abscess formed in mv lungs
and made its way through my side, and discharged
large quantities of pus externally, so that my phy
sician thought the functions of one of my lungs
were totally destroyed—therefore supposed the
case hopeless. This mournful state of things con
tinued for a long time, until I was wasted and worn
to a skeleton. 1 had tried a number of remedies,
but all failed to do any good. But there still being
a spark of hope left with me and my anxious pa
rents, and having heard of the great virtues of your
Compound Syrupof wild Cherry, and ita being ap
proved of by physicians of the first eminence, I
concluded to make a trial of it and to my great
satisfaction, my cough gradually grew better, the
hole in my side began to heal, and I am now happy
to say, from a poor and almost hopeless skeleton
I have become healthy, and weigh more than I
ever have. All my neighbors can testify to the
above fact. ABRAHAM HUNS1CKER.

Patent Ointment.
TI1V IffAftT
Ulcers, Piles, Rheumatism, and Burns,
and also for Galls and Sprains
in Horses.
VERY planter and every physician should have
Lj Gray's Patent Ointment among their supplies.
There is no other remedy equal to it for the cure
of Sore Legs and other Ulcers so common among
negroes ; for Snake Bites and other poisonous at
tacks, it isa speedy and certain cure, and the most
painful and obstinate cases of Piles may be imme
diately relieved by its application. It is equally
valuable for the cure of fresh wounds from cuts
or bruises, as it will quickly remove allinflamma
tion, and heal the wound. To the owner» of horse*
it is invaluable; as for Scratches, Bruises, Sprains in
any of the joints, Galls Cuts, Cracked Heels, and
other injuries, it is an infallible remedy. The gen

Uterine Catholicon.
W E now come to the most important medicine
of the day, when the number of those af
flicted is taken into consideration; and when it s
remembered that until the introduction of this
remedy, it was thought impossible to remove: he
disease without mechanical means, and by a pain
ful course of treatment.
Marshall's Uterine Catholicon
is the discovery and invention of Dr. Theodore
Pomeroy, of Utica, an old and successful medical
ractitioner. Its
■peculiar efficacy was suggested
by unexpected developments in a case of Prolapsus
li teri while under treatment for another complaint.
The suggestion in this instance fed to a course of
long and severe study, which resulted in the com
bination of the Catholicon. We have seen so much
pain and patient endurance of suffering to those
who labored under these diseases, with the cor.vic
tion that there was no cure, that we feel this medi
cine will, ere long, be deemed an inestimable ac
quisition. . .
A physician of much eminence, after examining
the medicine and observing its effect*, remarked
that "a new era had sprung up in the lives of fe
males and that did they but understand in the least
degree the virtues of tne remedy, and the inability
of the profession to treat their cases, they would
not long waste their money in doctor s Mils, nor
yet suffer from the torture of a curable disea»."
This medicine is a certain cure for Prolapsus
Uteri, (falling of the womb,) Profuse Discharge,
and painful Menstruation, Luchorrh®», or Whites,
and for most of the distressing Complaints incident
to Females.

the doctrines and measures of that party, now j
maintained by a large majority of the people, and
it has seen the final trumph of the great popular
issues which it has supported. By discussing the [
great questions of policy before the country, ex- j
noundirig and advocating the Democratic doctrine,
though the most able pens that that party could
furnish, in articles of greater length,more condensed j
force, more elaboratory research, and more elevated j
tone than ia possible for the newspapers, it has '

enlightenment and formation of public opinion, and I
for the support ofthe principles which it advocates,
As long as the Democratic Party remained united
it trimphed. and sustained those cardinal doctrins
of political faith, with which the eau» of the peo
