AGRICULTURAL. From the Ala., Planter. Apple Orchards, Hogs, Ac. A little experiment was made by the writer of this article some years ago on fattening and feeding the hog and cow. The following preparation he found singu larly valuable and recommends it with con fidence for either, if keeping or fottening the animal is the object or superior pork: two parts apples, (sour) one part pumpkin, and one cotton seed boiled, salted moderately and given milk warm; another, rather quicker in producing flesh—two parts apples, the remaining half divided equally between the pumpkins, sweet potatoes and cotton seed —prepared before. Peas were substituted for the potato and the effect in producing solid meat, plain to the touch. In all cases, copperas given once a week. While simply keeping was the object, the 'That fruit, put through a culinary process is wretchedly neglected in our southern diet, none can deny,and that its effects on the animal economy would be salutary, all medical gentlemen freely admit. That people, of whom the great and good Doctor Rush asked why they never died ofconsump lion, make a constant and free use of pre pared fruit throughout the year, and espc nally with their salted meats in the winter months. The dried fruit cooked, is with them a standing dish. To those accus tomed to fruit prepared by stewing, &c., it is a luxury. The good old apple pie and dumpling that puzzled a great monarch to find out how the apple got in, he not being able to find the sea?«, are as much relished by the bon virant as when the wise monarch expressed his surprise, lhe good and distinguished Timothy Pickering gave his opinion at the table of the Father of his country, before a brilliant assemblage, the conversation having turned on diet—that a large, rich sweeting nicely baked, a bowl of good milk and a slice of good light bread was a preparation fit for majesty, and to which the great Washington nodded assent. "Uf the fruit of every tree shalt thou eat, ! but," &c.,—was the divine command: Is ! not the inference allowable that fruit was especially prepared for the human frame? # Or can it be supposed'that the good lady, in the caper she cut in her tete a tete with old homey, changed in any degree the salutary qualities of the fruit. We hear of only one that passed through her hands, and whether it was a Newtown Pippin or a .crab apple we are left to conjecture, though from the prevailing disposition of some of her grand daughters, we are almost ready to believe it was the Inst. Still by adding a little sweeting to both we get along with them. Among the many pre parations of which the apple is capable, the old apple butter, of the North; the apple jam, of the French; and the preserved apple of the East, will certainly stand among delicious preparations; and that they are highly salutary cannot admit a doubt. Washington. Productive Apple Trees. —Browne, in his treeg of America, says there is an apple tree at Romney, in Virginia, which, according to Dr. Mease, grew spontaneously from seed,is estimated to be fifty years old, and has attained a height of forty-five feet with a trunk more than a yard in diameter. In 1835, it produced one hundred and eighty bushels of large fruit, besides four or five bushels left under tho tree as damaged, and several bushels taken by visi tors during the course of the season, 60 that A whole amount in the opinion of Dr. Mease, must have been nearly two hundred bushels. The greatest quantity of fruit borne on a single tree in England, in one year, grew in Littlefield, Sussex,and produced seventy four bushels of fruit the total weight of the crop being nearly two tons. The greatest competitor with the United States for supplying the world with bread, Russia. It is estimated on good authority, that the quantity of wheat annually exported from Russian ports averages 20,000,000 of bushels. for O the Trout Fishing. —We have a friend who r is a soit.ewhat noted practical joker, resi ding in a pleasant country residence near the ocean. Some time since he had a visit TT from Prof.-, of poetic memory. The Li professor is a keen trout fisherman, and seeing a large pond at some distauce from c * l R.'s rcsidunce, inquired, "can- you fish for trout in that pond?" "Oh yes," said R_, "as well as not."' "Possible? Where's your rod? man. I3ut if you want to try, we'll go' over to F -, and get tackle, and you may try your hand at it to-morrow, as thereupon agreed to do so, and the day passed by the worthy professor in pre parations for angling. The next morning early, R-- drove with hiru over to the pond, and he whipped it all around, to windward and leeward, and finally waded in up to his waist, and threw his flies most skilfully, but never raised a fin. At length, as the sun grew intolerably hot, he turned to R_who lay under a tree solacing himself witfi book nnd segar, and exclaimed, "I don't believe there is a trout in your pond, know that there is," replied R-, imper turbably. "Why, you told me there was. "Oh no, said R-— ,very leisurely turning «Wer »nd lighting another segar, "you askqd me if you could fish for trout here, and I said you could, as well as not. I've seen folks do it often; but I never knew of one bei nu caught here." ° The result might be anticipated. R walked home, and the professor drove the horses; nor did R-venture within reach of the professor s rod until after dinner_ Journal of Commerce. He that cannot abide the storm without flinching or quailing, strips himself in the sunshine, and lies down by the way side, to he overlooked and forgotten. He who but braces himself to the struggle when the winds blow, gives up when they have doua, and falls asleep in tbe stillness that follows. - "Did you ever know anybody to »tick to any kind of business, no matter how un promising, ten years at most, who did not prosper?

FÏ1HIS Extract is put up in quart bottle*—it 1 is six times cheaper, pleasanter, and war ranted superior to any sold. It cures diseases without vomiting, purging, sickoning or debili tating the patient, and is particularly adapted for a Fall and Winter MEDICINE.
