It appears that e iat oi Mr. Comstock 't discovery hat been for tome time before the public, but owing to want of any provuriou m oai patent and eopy right rnirniini7 nr tecurinir reward for such discoveries, he has that fur only wads limited and confidential communications of hit new agricultural theory, tnfficient to testSnd de monstratt ttt practicability and importance by actual experiment. At the only method by which he caa disseminate and obtain remu neration for hit discovery, Mr. Comstock gives private and confidential lectures all over ine iuu, wnerevcr unuaom ber of lubscriber are obtained to justify his attendance, charging ons dollar for admission, and five dollars at the end of the year to those who adopt and make practical application of hit new theory. .,- ' ; ' ' ,' 'i. for two years Mr. Comstock hat made hit confidential disclosures to agriculturists, and as the remit of the information' thus commu nicated, he now presents certificates snd let ters from Urge number of gentlemen of known intelligence, probity and honor, all tending to establish and prove from actual ex periment the validity of his principle, and the most remarkable results of iu practical appli cation.' The experiments prove S general law applicable to the whole vegetable kingdom. ! by the terra-culture all kinds of trees, forest, ; fruit and ornamental, flourish; peach trees from fifty to a hundred yeart old, partially d. aail and km-re ii aril restored to a health V and thrifty condition; at when young, in a sia nL ....nn uiutrtnrJnrA thn most abund ant and li'aaet fruit. The tame results are produced upon all fruit treet, and wnat teemt tcarcely lest remarkable, It appears that the precise ages of trees are ascertained and, de termined by Mr. Comstock't theory. 1 he terra culture has been applied to all kinds of garden vegetables, plants, fruits and shrubbery, at, alto, to all kiudt of crops, with wonderful success. Wecsnnot go into de tail of what experiments hsve proved. Cropt of grain and vegetables are, at a great saving of labor, more than donbled by terra culture. One experiment shows the production of 135 bushels of shelled corn to the acre, and. anoth er the production of 1001) bushelt Mercer po tatoet to tne acre. It is alto shown that the great cropt which have commanded premi um! at agricultural faire have, been produced accidentally, by terra culture,: of which, we , 1 Hn ...i.l.nna in flaurafrn f.nntlt.V.
