It lias been Aften and well said, "are nature's care." The is, perhaps, no class ol the vegetable world so little un derstood as thi^ "Grasses," says Pro fessor Martyn,"vulgarly forms one single idea, and a husbandman, when he is "looking over his enclosure, does not dream that there arc upwards of 300 species of gjass, of which 30 or 40 may I be at present under his eye. They have ] scarcely had a name besides the general [ one till within these 20 years; and the few particular names which have been given them are far from having obtained general use, so that we may fairly as- j pert that the knowledge of ibis most common and useful tribe of plants is yet in its infancy." i Having heretofore noticed Clover, Timothv, Orchard Grass, Mjllet, Bucket, Wheat,'Ac., we shell now notice briefly scape other kinds that have not yet come into very general use with many of our j formers. ° Jlye Grass —Appears to have been cul- ! ii We tr p revious to the yeor 1077, he- ; j.jdes which, red clover, spurrey, trefoil, : A*c., wero the only plants then culti- ! vated as grasses and it is only of late j years that any other species of the nat- | oral grasse*» has been tried as a substi tute for it, in forming artificial pastures, There has been much difference of opinion respecting tho merits and com parative value of rye-grass. It produces abundance of seed which is easily "collected and readily vegetates on mo t kinds of soil, under circumstances of dit- , ferent management. It soon arrivas at ; perfection, and produces in its first year of growth a good supplv of early herb age which is much liked by cattle. It may be sown either with or with put clover or other grasses in July and August, or in the spring, at the rate of one"and a half to two bushels per aero, pr when sown with clover about half # this quantity will suffice. It is thought • that rye-grass will stand long and severe droughts, longer and better than most any other grass in this country. It is one ot the most prolific grasses now used; often branching or stooling out as high as 50 to 100 stalks or straws from a single seed when and where it |ias an oppoitunity to do so. . It is very applicable to the middle States, and is far north northern N. Y., where ft has become quite a favorite with many farmers. Herd's Grass .—This grass is set down in the YVarburn table of experiments, on the respective A alue of grass at a very low figure; much too low we think under favorable circumstances. We would not advise any farmer to use this grass his cultivated land, as it is too tena cious in its hold, but in low springy, and wetlands we believe it to be ppe of the Agricultural. For The Diamond State. hielt have bee 1 m mrn m and to furnish a tender and valuable, pasture. It may be sown either in July, August, or early in the fall, with or without Timothy or other grasses.
