dusted over, when it will be fit to sow : if
you have no lime handy, ashes will do. No more seed should be taken to the field in any one day, than can be put in.— Seed in the soak will keep many days, but does not do to be exposed long to sun cov ered in the earth. The custom is to cover it with a cloth in the carl while being used. Before pulling the wheat in the salt-soak, wash it twice in pure water. There are a dozen other soaks ; but we believe this to be the best, the neatest, about cheapest; and withal, a sure prevention AGAINST SMUT. Selection of Seed. —Be sure to get such kind of wheal seed as is best adapted to vour soil ; let it be hardy, early, and proli fic : be sure that there are no cockle, chess, or other weed seed, in it. It is a good cus tom to pass even the cleanest seed wheat through a good seive before soaking it. Mode of seeding and putting in. — If sown broad cast, we would prefer plough ing, or cultivating the seed in, not less than 2 nor more than 3 inches deep ; to be after wards harrowed and rolled. Either of these methods more effectually cover the seed, than when done with the harrow, and by placing the seed deeper, serve measurably so protect the roots ol the plants from the effects of frost. Drilling the wheat in by a machine, we think a better plan than either of the above ones; and for the following, among other reasons : 1. It requires 3-S hs less seed to set an ; acre of wheat when drilled in. than when ; broadcasted, it requiring but 5 pecks by the former mode, and 8 pecks by the latter, when well done—a saving of 75 bushels in a hundred acre field, is, therefore, effected. 2. The seed are more equally and eligib ly distributed, as regards space and depth, than can possibly be done by hand, however skilfully performed, 3. By drilling, the labor of forming the drill, dropping the seed, covering and roll- j ing, is performed at one and the same lime; thus saving the labor and expense of those separate operations, which are indispensably necessary to be performed, whenever w heat may be ploughed in with the cultivator, or harrowed in. 4. Bv the drilling machine, a slight ridge j is raised on either side of the drill, which. 1 to its extent, protects the roots of the plants from the injurious effects of cold and wet, the slight elevation acting as a barrier a gainst the wind and water. 5. Should the roots of the plants be up rooted by the contraction and expansion of cold and hea', the earth forming the ridges settle down on them, and thus afford a tol erably fair protection, rendering it an esay I operation in spring, w hen the frost is out i of the ground, and the earth settled and dry enough, to replace the roots, by passing the roller over the field, an operation of infinite set vice, and w hich should never be omitted. 6. The space between the tl;ills, give free circulation lo the light and air,matters of great moment lo the plant in the course, of its growth, thereby letting in the light of the sun and the meliorating power of the a'mosphere, whose kindly influences cannot be too highly appreciated ; besides which, U opens a direct channel for the revivifying action of the dews, admitting them at once on lo the earth, to be there absorbed and taken up as food for the growing plants. 7. Drilling is said by one of the best, one of the most enlighcnecl, and one of the most enthusiastic farmers in the country, to ren wheat less liable to rust. lie does not as sign the reason; but we presume the theory j of the thing to be this: that, owing to the, free admission of sun and air between the drills, the plants do not suffer so much from suppcrabumlance of water, as do those sown broadcast, and, as a consequence, vegetation goes on more regularly; the plants, there fore, are not so liable lo be forced into an absorption of an excess of sap, and by this means escape the evils which would bo consequent upon an exuberance of that fluid; the vessels of the stalks avoid disruption no exudation lakes place, so that should the close, murky weather, which so favors the parasitic plants or fungus, to which the rust is refetred, occur, the stalks remaining whole, and there being no weeping out of the sap, no lodgments can be made by the parasitic, tribe; and they are wafted away without doing harm, by the current of air passing through the spaces of the drills— tor the efficacy of this we do not answer. So much fur theory ; and now let us'seej w hat that sterling, strong-minded farmer, of Wheatland, Delaware, says, with regard to) the results of its practical operation. In a letter to the Commissioner of patents, 31 aj. John Jones, says : ‘•When I commenced drilling; and for two or three years, 1 was ridiculed by my Neighbors ; some would advise me to take home, break it up, and cook inner with it.” [Smart neighbors HB&iow ever, disregarded their jeers. and And now the best evidence possibly bring forward in support over the broadcast system, is BSHhB that all my neighbors have adopted HR for sowing their w heat, and most > in all grain; and that we Itave three, drill-builders besides 11. W.Fennock, i of the improved drills, all of Fwhom could not supply the demands for j drills for New Castle County the past sea son. 1 think lam warranted in saying, that rhree-fourlhs of all the wheal that will be grown in New Castle county the next year, i will be from land sown with the drill. One i of the great advantages of the drill over the ; broadcast is, that they can be constructed ! lor sow ing the concentrated manures, guano, poudrette, bone-dust, &.c. I have one lot n f 160 acres, upon which I sowed at the *amc lime with my wheat, fifteen tons of( niaiioj uu a pail of which I sowed 300 pounds, and other parts 200 pounds per acre.” ' “The experiments with the drills and broadcast, on Dr. C. Noble's field, resulted in a yield of 27 bushels per acre of broad cast, where two bushels had been sown, and 35 per acre, where 1 1-4 bushel had been with the drill; land similar in every respect; the variety of wheat, Med it era neat) ; show ing an increase in favor of drilling (includ ing the saving of seed) of 8 3-4 bushels to the acre. The yield of additional straw on the drilled acre, 12 per cent. 'l’he yield of additional wheat on the drilled acre, 27 per cent.” Such facts require no comment —they write their own history. Time of seeding. —We have ever been the advocate of early sowing; and notwith standing the oft repeated attacks of the Hes stan-fly, to which early sown wheal plants are subject, we remain unshaken in our be lief of the propriety of the practice. It is not our purpose to designate the day on which wheat should be sown ; but merely to urge, that it should be got in as early in this month as possible ; and to express the hope, that when done, it tiny be well done, us the manner of pulling in a crop, exrrlsa powerful influence over its product. H ater Furrows. —So soon as you have finished seeding, run your water furrows, and pass the roller cross-wise over them. Quantify of seed per acre. — If sown broadcast, it w ill require S pecks per acre : I if by drill, 5 perks, per acre, will be ample; I so that, by drilling, 3 pecks of seed will be , saved on each acre; a mailer of considerable moment to the economical farmer; besides which, out of many experiments made to test the relative product!vencss of the two sys tems, the results are signally in favor of putting in wheat by the drilling machine. Calcareous matter for Wheal lands ; All lands on which wheat may be cultivated, I should be either marled or limed, as lime formes a very important constituent in the elements of the wheat plan’, being an im portant part of its structure and substance Ashes will answer as well as lime, or marl, inasmuch as more than one-half of the body of ashes, is, in fact, lime : perhaps, it i would act better, as besides the lime, there are comprised in ashes various other sub stances, which enter into the wheat plant, and form portions of its food and structure. Wet lands. —Wheal should never be grown on wet lands ; indeed, there are but few of the cultivated plants that succeed well on such soils. By draining, such lands are improved in texture and temperature, are worked at less expense, may be worked i sooner in spring, produce earlier, larger, and ' belter crops, anti render the place more healthy. These reasons should induce all notable farmers at least logo to work, drain ! such land?, and thereby add to their solid comforts and wealth. Spring rolling. —Wheat fields should al- I ways be rolled in the spring, so soon as the ; frost is out of the ground, and the soil suf ficiently firm to resist poaching from (lie horses’ hoofs. It serves to replace the roots of plants thrown out by frost and thaws, con solidates the earth, gives an impetus to vege tation, and exerts a beneficial influence gen erally. Granaries — the weevil. —BeTore any new grain is stored therein, granaries should be thoroughly cleansed. In the first place, the floors, walls, and ceilings - , should bo care fully swept, the dirt, cobwebs, and insects gathered and burnt, not swept out of doors; then the entire interior, should be scoured with hot lye, made strong ; and, when dry, should be white-washed, with at least two coats of white-wash. Such a cleansing, would probably destroy the weevil, which proves so destructive to stored grain. We have seen it stated that by placing several vessels with tar in them, in a gran ary, and renewing the tar occasional!v, that the fumes arising from it was so offensive to the sense of smell of the weevil—so suf focating in its effects—as to either kill or drive them from the premises. Of this lat ter remedy, we have no personal knowledge; but as it is inexpensive, it may be well to test its virtues, as an adjunct to the thoro’ cleansing which we have named. We have seen it stated also, that by ! sprinkling lime through the grain at the time of storing, it would secure it from the rav ages of the insect. This being a cleanly remedy, and easily tried, it would be well to give it a fair experiment—not omitting the thorough cleansing we have recommen o o ded. The following plan, is the one pursued by the lion. Wm. Carmichael , of Queen Anne’s County, of this State; we published it in Aug- 1848, but as it is one of those things that will bear repealing, we republish it for the benefit of our friends ; ami do so with the more pleasure, as it proceeds front a gentleman of great experience and know ledge— one who is always implicitly to be relied upon : “I last summer,saw some publications in your paper in relation to the weevil fly and Black-weevil. The weevil-fly deposits its egg in the grain, in its green and tender stale. If the wheat is threshed soon after harvest, ami thrown into bulk, it undergoes a heat, which destroys the egg, and it sustains no injury ; but if it remains long in the shock jor stalk, the weevil hatches and makes its way out of the grain to its great injury, both in weight and quality. One degree to the I north of us, this pernacious insect is bnl little known. Here 1 have sometimes mark ed its absense for several years ; but after a mild winter, they generally appear, frt the more southern States I believe, they are never absent,” “The Black Weevil haunts our granaries where they are generated. Some years ago | I suffered much injury from them, but have now an effectual defence. When my gnstt* aries are clear of grain, I place powdered brimstone in an earthen pan, which, for safe ty, I put on the floor in a bed of sand, dos sing doors and windows, and fire it. The smoke either destroys them or drives them off.” Threshing out grain. — ft is, we think, al ways good policy to thresh out and store away your grain as soon after harvest, as your other more pressing labors will permit you, as it places you in an eligible position to avail yourself of any favorable changes of the market. Your grain ready, you can embrace any occasion of a sudden rise in ■ value, to dispose of it, w hereas should you ; have to wail for the operations of threshing land cleaning, a fall in the price might occur | before you could have it ready, and thus you might loose the golden opportunity of ! realizing a handsome profit. Bui indepcn idenl of these considerations, the danger of the depredations of insects, and of vermin, |as explained by the Hon. Mr. Carmichael , | in the preceding paragraphs, ahould at once point out to you the policy and propriety of getting your grain crop out at an early period, and storing them in your granary, 'as a means of predervation. THE TIMES. PORT TOBACCO, MD . I WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEP. 12,1850. The Executive Committee of the i Charles County Agricultural Society, will meet in Port Tobacco on Tuesday next, the : 17ih inst. The members of the Committee are requested to be punctual in their atten dance, as business of importance to the So ciety will require it. The time for holding tite Exhibition this fall is fast approaching, and to make the Exhibition what it should be, it will be necessary for the Committee to complete without delay their arrange ments. The members of the Committee, we know, have the interests of the Society at heart and fed ‘deeply concerned for the prosperity of our county. We sincerely wish we could say as much for all of our Farmers and Planters, We should then be taunted no more about “hen-grass fields and barren knolls,” which we are now compelled to admit area disgrace to us as a community. It shows lack of a spirit of ; enterprise and energy. Yet we rejoice to say that the Society is gradually bringing about a complete renovation of our worn out lauds; but how much faster would this process go on if the Agriculturists of the county would unite their efforts and mutu ally purpose the same end. Let all who arc interested in the matter lend a helping ‘hand, and make old Charles the garden spot of Maryland, as her position and advantages entitle her to be. By a resolution of the Executive Com mitee of the Charles County Agricultural Society, we are authorized to announce the following premiums to be added to the list found in another column : For the second best improved Bull, §3 j “ “ common do 2 “ “ - improved Milch Cow, 3 u " common do 2 | “ Yoke of Oxen, 3 “ best Vokc of Young Oxen, 1 to 3 y’rs, 3 “ best young Bull of any breed, 1 to 3 y’rs, 3 : Important Proceedings in Congress. , It is with feelings of pleasure and satisfac tion that we record the final passage of four of the most important measures which have ever claimed the consideration of the Ame rican Congress. These measures are the the Texas boundary bill ; the bill establish ing a territorial government for New Mexi co; the bill admitting the State of Califor nia into the Union, and the bill establishing a territorial government for Utah. The two first named bills w r ere united in one, and passed the House of Representatives on Fri day by a majority of 10 votes—veas 107, nays 97. The vote admitting California - 5 stood, yeas 150, nays 5G ; and that for the territorial government of Utah, 97 yeas and 85 nays. Both Houses on Monday adopted a reso lution to adjourn on the 30dt inst. This intelligence will be received with general satisfaction. An attempt was made in the House of Re presentatives on Monday to reach the Fugi tive Slave bill on the Speaker’s table. Tivo ; thirds of the members, however, did not vote for a suspension of the rules, which was necessary for that purpose. Jenny Lind 'Pickets.— At the auction sale in New York, on Saturday, 1,429 tick ets to Jenny Lind’s first concert were sold, i 7 bringing the aggregate sum of $9,119.25, or an average of $6 38 a ticket, it is estima i led that $30,000 worth of tickets for this concert will be sold. A ticket for the choicest seal sold on Friday at $225, and others at from $l5O up to S2OO. Mr. S. 11.

S ime of the above delegates may not sustain the radical mea surcs which will be proposed by others; but we presume that they will all favor the election of public officers (with the excep tion of Judges) by the people ; a change in the judiciary system ami in legal proceed ings ; and various other matters deemed necessary for the public interests. It is quite likely that the delegates from oilier ihan the above named countie?, will concur in most of the changes which may be pro posed, and that the new constitution may be formed with tolerable unanmity. We hope that the wisdom of ihe Convention will produce an organic law that will pro ; tect all interests, and prove acceptable to the people of the Slate.
