The Grasses
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.

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.
