jgricttltaral it. TO AVOID IttTWIXG UA1, OUT OF Every farmer naturally has an aver sion to running out of hay in the spring oefore grass comes. 2so one desires to buy that which he ought to have raised, to keep his cattle from starving ; and the only alternative, when short of fod der, namely, placing them on short allowance, is still worse. The farmer should know before he enters winter, whether he has enough feed for all his domestic animals. To ascertain tliis, many resort to past experience, determining as nearly as they can guess often a very vague kind of guessing. Those who have kept a careful record of the number of tons consumed by a given number of head of cattle, or a certain number of horses, may determine more nearly. "Where the cattle and horses have been weighed, and the aggregate weight of the herd thus determined, the estimate may be made with considerable accu racy. Some animals cat more than others for the same weight ; a greater difference is occasioned by the mi...

TELEGRAPHIC; The Charleston Mercury of the 22nd nit says President Davis, in secret session, had advised the Confederate Congress that the prisoners of war released by the Yankee Government upon parole, should be absolv ed from their oath, and allowed to take a part in the struggle for independence. He urges as a reason for this infamous reckless ness, a breach of faith exhibited by Mr. Lincoln on the exchange of prisoners. Attempts are being made to raise troops by conscription. Editors and compositors arc not to be enrolled, except for local duty. Intelligence has been received from Richmond via Baltimore, that the rebels are sending their tobacco to the interior towards Danville and Faunville" and beyond Petersburg. It is added, private citizens have no control over cotton and tobacco, the military having assumed charge of them. Jeff.

McClellan, and What They Say About Him. We mate the following extract from a letter of 3Ir. Samuel Bowles, of the Spring field (Mass.) Republican, who has been on a visit to Washington. Id is paper has here tofore been strongly McClellan : " Indeed, it is very difficult for an earnest, candid seeker of the truth to reach a cor rect judgment as to General McClellan's management of the campaign, and his rela tion to its successes and failures. There is no doubt of a great abatement of confidence in him on the part of the Cabinet and Con gress. The President, too, measures what he gave him before without stint. It is not easy to see why, with nearly a quarter of a million of the oldest and best troops of the Union at his command, General Mc Clellan permitted the rebels to press their lines in upon him at all points, and to hold the Potomac, both above and below Wash ington, aH winter why he refused to seize fine opportunities to cut off large detach ments of their armies why he denied ...

TELEGRAPHIC. Yorktown and Pittsburg"- The correspondent of the New York Times says that tin -officer who -left the National army before Yorktown, reports that he left General McClellan in the bet of spirits, and sanguine of his ability to drive the rebels out of Yorktown and Vir ginia. The same officer say3 that when he left, the rebels were burning their barracks, an evidence of a preparation to evacuate, or an expectation of being diiven out. The absence of official news from Pitts burg Landing is iu consequence of the want of telegraphic communication, the lines having been cut at seeral points in Tennessee by person in the employ of the rebels. The Secretary of "War has ordered that any one caught in this act of barbarism Bhall be shot on the spot. A man detected cutting wires in Virginia was served so but a few days ago.

oriental ttiiiui LOCUST SEED. The following mode of preparing this seed for planting Las been kindly fur nished by a correspondent: Pour boiling "water over the seeds and let them soak for twenty-four houre ; change the water at the expiration of that time, pouring on boiling water and letting them soak twenty-four hours longer. After this, place them in a. warm, moist place, or, if you prefer, keep them in a vessel, well moistened and warm, and in the course of two or three days they will commence to sprout. After they have nearly all sprouted, pick out those that have started and plant ; those that have not sprouted treat as before. Plant from the first to the tenth of May, in nils rour feet apart. The seed should not be planted before the first of May, as the plants are as liable to be killed by the frost as young melons. The locust is a most rapid grower, and requires but a few years to form a beautiful shade tree. Let every person who has a rood of ground and who has not in thi...

Yorktown in Our Two Great Wars for the Union Tho Siege of 1781 and the Siege of 1862. The New Yoik Herald of the 12th inst., contains a map of the seat of war at and about Yorktown accompanied with the fol lowing historical account of the memoriaqle siege of 1781, as compared with the pres ent: In the first instance, the object of the war was the establishment of the independent nationality of the Union against a powerful European enemy; iu the second instance, our object is the maintenance of the " in tegrity of the Union" against the most cause less, foolish and hopeless, and yet the most formidable, domestic rebellion in the records of any nation on the face of the earth. In the first of these two great wars, after five years of a gloomy and doubtful struggle against superior numbers, resources and facilities for war, by land and sea, the final issue was decided iu favor of the Union in 4he successful siege of Yorktown; in the -present war, with all the advantages of su perior nu...

rrcultaral Calmim. MARAUDING CATTLE. Cattle may be educated into almost anything. A quiet cow may be converted into a skillful jumper in a single season. The first requisite for such training is short feed, resulting from over-stocking. The second is low fences ; and the third, tempting crops of corn beyond these low fences. In the spring grass is usually good, and other crops arc smallJ and uninviting ; but during some mid summer periods, when pasture is dried up, the process often begins. One or two rails arc accidentally knocked or blown from the fence ; the quiet and orderly animals stretch their heads over to reach a morsel of the tall grass ; they throw down accidentally two or three more rails, and finally leap over. The owner drives them out as soon as they have learned the difference between de licious food on one side and short com mons on the other, and puts up a rail. They have already learned to leap a little, and the next day they improve and go a rail higher. Another ...
