Correspondence of the (Phil.) Saturday Courier. IMPORTANCE OP. ROOT CROPS. Baltimore, May 12, 1842. Messrs. Editors:-. It is surprising that so few of cur far mers avail themselves of the advantages of cultivating root for feeding stock. I have cultivated the Suar Bea and Ruta Baga lor the two last years, with much satisfaction and suc cess. 1 think thtse two kinds the best foj field culture, and sufficient for the farruer's use: and they can be cultivated cheaply. Five acres of ground in thrse roots cost me no more in the cultivation tnan it would in corn. The nlantino-of th j -: o BACiitLORS, get Marriid. If you are desirous of wealth, gt marritd, for a good wife promotes habits of indus try and economy, and prevents a great many unnectssiry ex penses wliich cannot be avoided in a single life. If you are looking for s'.ations of distinction and honor get married, for a good wife will seek to advance her husband in the prosecution of all honorable purposrs, and lend him that aid and tncomagtment, which ho can derive from no other source. If you would become a good citizen, get married, for he is alone worthy of the title, who is connect d to thft great lamily of man, by the ties of husband and father. If you are fortunate, get nariud; for a good wife will in crease your prosperity and render you twice blessed iu the tn joymeut of your lichts. If you are unfortunate, get married; the cares of the world are lessoned by having a wifu who takes a pleasure in shar ing them with you. If you are in business, get married; for the married man has his mind fixed on his business and his family is more like ly of su' cess. If you are young, get married. Dr. Franklin advocated earlv marriages, bcaase a man who marries young can have the satisfaction of raising and educating hischildieo before he dies. Get inanitd Let your plans and purposrs for future be what they may, the b-siness of gttting married is one that should beattendrd to farst, as it neither itueiferes with your plans, nor prevt nts their execution. Get married Live foberly, be industrious, engage in ny thinMhat will deteriorate from your character as an honest man? a pure patriot, and a kind husband take our advice, and with all your giltings, get married.

The hoe passed through them once and the cultivator twice, and notwithstanding the drought caused the more elevated pans of the lot to perish entirtfy, from two to three hundred bushels were harvested. Hundreds of bushels were sold on the farm at twenty-five cents per bushel, not ex clusively for stock, but for table use. They prove a very su ptrior vegetable for the table, and when served up as our com mon whi-.e English turnip, are generally preferred to them, and if cultivated extensively, would, in my opinion, supercede ihem lor the use of the table entirely, excepting the early sorts of white turnip for the spring use, 'The farmer who loves tho best quality of milk and butter in the winter, and ple nty of it, roust depend chiefly on roots. Dry fodder soon makes dry : cows. During a part of October and Noember, when crass had nearly failed, fifteen bead of cattle were fed on the leaves of the Ruta Baga. Many of these leaves measured 2 feet in length, extending 4 feet across the row when spread out, from the same root: and I am sure that one hundred cows roiht have been led for one month on the leaves of this piece with out the teat injury to the crop, and would have increased the milk to double the quantity produced by the frost bitten decay ing grass of November, with great improvement in flesh -r and the quantity of milk and butter was doubled in one week, and greatly improved in richness, wi'hout imbibing any upleas ant taste. These roots should be fed to milch cows in tha winter, in addition to their usual quantity of dry foid, lor tha express purpose of producing milk, which will be increased to twice the usual quantity, and of the richest quality, the cows being sheltered and warm; many are thus prevent ed from going dry. Betides all these advantages to the far mer, his manure is greatly increased, the health of his stock improved, he makes a siving by substituting coarse fodder for the best hay, and his soil is cleaned and ameliorated by the cui'ivatiou of roo's.

If you th.nk it of use to the farmer, and calculated . to supply our market with a more plentiful and imDroved quality of milk and butter, you are at libetty publish any pail or inaKe sucu use oj u as you choose.

A Certain Cure for the Cancer if You follow the Directions Take half an ounce of bluestone, a quarter of bumi coperas, aqua;ter ofan ounce of burnt allum, half a quarter ofan once of verdigris; powder them all to gether. Take, bluestone and burnt allum, a quarter ofan ounce of each, finely powdered; add to that half a pint of the best rum and a table spoonful of honey. You can put it in a tin cup and lay a, saucer on it, and se t it on some live coals, and let it boil a few minutes; then strain itthrough a flue cloth and put it in a phial. t The cancer must be dressed twice a day. If it is not raw, you must scarify it a little. Scrape a little lint of linnen; thrn pour but a liule otthe liquid in a spoon; dip the lint in it, and then iu the powder; lay it on, and bind a .small piece of linen ou it, in order to confine it to the place. You must be careful to pick all the flesh off every time you dress it. Wash tho cancer with a little milk and water or castile soap. When the patient finds the powder has no f fleet, a poultice must be ap plied, in order to rot the roots. If the cancer does not become easy, apply the powder again. When the cancer is our, pour a little of the liquid in the hole, and apply the powder again twice, in order to kill all the remaining roots. .
