THE FARMERS’ COLUMN.
CORN PLANTING. V e take the following interesting commu nication from 1 lie Southern Rural Gentle man, one of the best agricultural journals in the Southwest: Mlt. Editor:—In fulfillment of my pro mise to you, I herewith submit, for the bene fit of your readers, and of all who arc dis posed to profit by it, a regular system of corn culture—for any season—which, from expe rience and observation, I am satisfied is the best and surest yet adopted in this country. 1st. \\ hen coni is to be planted in cotton land, take a large two-horso shovel plow, and with a strong team run it deep under the old cotton stalk*, with mole boards, so as to open a deep, broad furrow. Step-drop, or gunge the corn at from twenty to thirty inches apart —putting three to live grains in a place—to be thinned to one stalk—cover wulr one of two furrows, with a scooper plow. When the corn is four orfivc inches high, run round it two furrows to the rowg with a small stamp er plow—with a cross board—close and deep. In two weeks plow in with a soldier sweep —of the proper shape—two furrows to the row—hilling up the corn well, and burying up the middle. In two weeks plow in again, with the turning plow’, deep—lapping the furrows well in the corn. In six or eight days, drill peas on the remaining middle, and break it out deep at one furrow with a large shovel plow ; and your corn is made—only you have to thin it out by baud of wot days —when the corn is from one io three feet high. 2- When old corn ground is to be planted, a center furrow should be run, and t lie 1 md well-bedded, with double team—plowing deep —the corn planted in the bed, and cultivated as before. It old corn laud lias not been much tramped, or from any cause tolerably loose, and you arc in a hurry, it may be plant ed and cultivated as in cotton land. All rows—except on very poor land— should be three and a half feet apart, so as to answer for corn or cotton ; and tbcic should be, at least—on all good common ground— one stalk to every squaie yard, in cultivation. One hundred good ears will make a bushol; and if each stock brings one good ear. it will make a bushel ; and it each stock brings one good ear, it will make a bushel; it will make forty-eight (48-100) bushels per acre; for each acre contains, exactly, 4840 square yards, Any good, common land, ought to make, at least, forty bushels corn ] er acre ; as this would allow 84'J missing hills and blighted ears to each acre. Philosophy of this System—of Planting and Cultivating.—The best, warmest, and dryest land is in the old cotton bed ; conse quently, the corn will grow oiF earlier there than anywhere else, and as there is no grass seed in the old lied by planting in, you are seldom troubled with much grass in the drill. The old cotton stalks should not be beat down till just before planting, as while standing with their numerous branches, they break the f* !’• . I 1 " .. mice ui me uescenuing winter rams, anti tints keeps the ground mellow and loose. In my judgment, all that corn requires is. that the land should be broken deep, close and thor oughly, once in its cultivation. l?v this sys tem—this only is done, and 1 eor.-ider all be yond this a waste of labor. By this ;5y>. jn all hoeing is avoided—a large amount of which is generally indispensable, when the barring and shoveling system is adopted. By this system, corn will seldom succor or over shoot itself, and as very few corn roots are broken, it will generally stand drouth better than when cultivated differently. Shape of Sweeps.— '1 lie best sweep in the world for corn or cotton, in my opinion, is solid—nearly a triangular sliaj o—rounding under the bottom—cuts fifteen inches—and is bent backward and downward time incite. front the outer corners, so that these run onlv about one inch shallower than the point. Why don't your l'oiindery men ca-t s. me sweeps of this description, and let us have them ? Crass beam far Sroof- r /b —T presume most farmers know how this i- fixe 1. A small hoard tacked to the foot and beam of the plow—parallel with .lie rod, and on the side next the corn—to pulverize the ground and prevent the large clods front rolling on the corn when it is small. Hoping that this may be beneficial to some, I remain yours, IJ. K. G. Give Yota Plants Poom. — Farmer can never get the idea into their heads that plants need room. 'J hey crowd them so near together, that they frequently suffocate ; and instead of large s| editions, an 1 large croj -. the farmer often gets small plants and small crops. It looks hard, indeed, to | nil outmic third or in ore of good, thrifty growing plants; but as hard as it looks, it :s nccessaiy -i we wish for large returns. Carrots, turnips an l beets need thinning at least six incite-, and to be fourteen inches between the rows, i have seen a number of crops of root the i -t season, and grown by tim e wlm pri led them selves on their- knowledge of fanning; and. in manv instances. I found that t*>ev i a i. t properly thinned their growing ci and the prospect was a small return f.,r the r la bor. i liave often experimented with rows, side by side, and aiways found the crop double, and the roots better where properly thinned. Sparc not the plants m>r tlic h.-c. it it would raise large and remunerative cro-s. [Philosopher, in llural American. - ♦ m A IIorse with the It paves.-—We have heard scores of remedies proposed for lieavcs. Ginger mixe I with oats has be _u pre scribed, and hundred- of hordes have heitu killed by doses of spirits of turpentine in va rious quantities. Indeed, we know of very few things which have not been recommended in turn as a cure for heaves. Prevention is always better than cure. A riddle in front of the cutting box. to let sand and dust out of cut feed, will he found advantageous. Steaming the food prevents the dust from separating from the food when eaten, and materially ameliorates the disease. The use of earots. however, is not only a preventative, but a remedy. Nor horse will be troubled with heaves while carrots form part of his food. [Working Farmer. For Blind Staggers.— Gum camphor, one ounce ; whisky or brandy, one pint—dis solve. Dose : One giil in a half pint of gum Arabic, flax-seed, or other mucilaginous tea, given every three or four hours; seldom ne cessary to give more than three doses. '] lie horse must he kept from water twenty-four hours. Never bleed in this disease. Wrap ping the legs in woolen cloths and keeping them bathed in water, as hot as can l-c borne seem beneficial in connection with the above receipt. --— ♦ — - Underdrain iso Boggy Land. — In deep, mucky bogs it is a difficult matter to make underdrains that will work, but it can be done, ’the Boston Cultivator says : " We liave seen deep ditches in a soft bog tartly tilled with sand, so as to make a solid founda tion. boards laid on the sand an 1 the in - laid on the boards, and then covered in the ordinary way. They have remained in good order, and teams pass in any direction over the ditches.” V.'nlx Beacon Y. got into a lad fix lie was very expert in crawling out of it. Though quick tempered, lie was one of the best dea cons in the world. He would not in sober moments utter an oath, or anything like one, i for his weight in eider. At the close of a rainy day lie was milking upon a knoll in the barnyard, at which was a dirty slough, and , near by an old ram, that, in consideration of his usual quiet disposition, was allowed to run with the cows. The deacon was piously hum ming Old Hundred, and had just finished the 1 line, " exalted high,” when the ram, obeying a sudden impulse to be aggressive, gave him a blow from behind, that put him up a short distance. Only to fall directly in the slough, I where the dirty water was just deep enough ; to give him a good ducking. As he crawled I out. and before he rose from his all fours, he looked over his shoulder at the rani, aud qui : etly vociferated—“You d—d old cuss, you!” j out looking aroun 1. and seeing one his neigh bors at the bars, looking at him. lie added, in the same breath, “ if 1 may be allowed the ; expression.” -» m » f*»-— Revenue and 'Taxation of England. The whole net revenue of England for the year ending Eeccmber 31. lboJ, amounted to £71,1)07,495, about equal, in round num bers. to 8300,099X90. 1 his is but the net j sum. The cost of collection, estimated at an | average of 8 per cent., would make the gross j amount of English taxation £77.700,999. or ; 8388.909,009, to be paid by a population | smaller than our own, atul the majority of them much poorer. This vast amount is raised thus : Customs, £23.909,990; excise, £1.999,900; stamps, I £2x50,000; post-office. £3.5 JO,995; crown lands. £250,000; miscellaneous items, nearly £2,000,000, and property tax nearly £3,000, ; 000. Yet immense as this amount is. it falls short nearly three million pounds of meeting the year's ex pen. lit urcs. It is estimated that the late war with China will cost England 875,000,009. lit return for which she gets indemnity to the amount of 87,500,900, in installments, running < u for several years.

Fitiident's Last Levee. — The President's levee on Tuesday night was Mr. Buchanan's last. It was the largest of his Administration, and was very brilliant. It is estimated that at least five thousand people were in attendance. The venerable heads of the Peace Conference were prominent among ■ the throng. In contrast with the.-c were the representatives of the army an 1 navy, attire 1 in their brilliant warlike trappings. All the leaders of the incoming Administration now in the city were pic-ent. including Governor (. hare, of Ohio, whose chances lbr the Cabi I net increase. Of the officers of the present Cabinet Mr. King was present; also nearly all the foreign ministers. The President expressed no regret that his , end had come, and Miss Lane never did the , honors more gracefully. Bite was attired in pure white, and during the evening was sur rounded with hosts of friends and admirers, each one of whom seemed to have a parting word to say. Everybody seemed to be merry, the outgoing as well ns incoming.
