Editors : Looking over the first number of your paper under its new name I was pleased to see a portion devoted to Agriculture, a branch of productive labor in which all have one common interest, and which appears to me, in Franklin County, is demanding the attention of every farmer. With oil admitted to be, not the strongest yet, beautiful, kind and easy to till with a subsoil in many parts of supe rior character, neither too tenacious nor too open and porous, and whic has been proven by experiment to be when turned up to the sun andatmos phcre, very productive, now cannot such land be made the very best by propjr treatment ? First keep it from being trampled and poached by stock in wet weather during fall, winter, and early spring; then plow deep with good turning plows, -carefully iave and judiciously apply all the ma nure not only that is made but all that can be made. The soil would then become deep and loose, w...

At a public dinner lately given by lb conductors'of the Patriot And Brit ish Banner newspapers, the Rev. Dr. Campbell referred to the experiences of an editor in the following manner, the latter parts of which strike us with peculiar force just at this particnlar time; : "There are some pitiable little things to be encountered in journalism as well as elsewhere. Something, per haps, is sent for insertion so late that it reaches the office on the morning o publication, just when going to press or when there is already more matter in type than can be admitted, and whole columns stand over The com munication -a trifle it may be does not appear. Immediately they write by the return of post, expressing great surprise and prodigious disappoint ment, and perhaps order the paper to be discontinued.

The only method of preventing it with which we are yet acquainted, is by the introduc tion of a skillful rotation or alternation of unlike crops. In adopting such a rotation, wc only copy from nature After, perhaps, fifteen or twenty successive crops of the same kind, the jMirfaco soil through which the roots are spread becomes so poor in those substances which tho crop especially requires, that the plant cannot obtain from it a sufficient supply to nourish unci briny to maturity the full-grown plant, within the time allotted to it in our climate for its natural growth. Tho roots do their best; they collect as dilisentlv as thev can, but winter comes on, and tho growth ends before the plant is fully matured. In the case of corn, the f...
