DBAH Sin—Astheidea of suitably enclosing our prairies to render them fit for cultivation , appears to be a topic likely to produce a good deal of speculation and interest ; and as various ways and means arc almost daily planned out and exhibited to the world , as being the best plan and most economical us regards the consideration of timber ; I , among tho rest . have my plan , although not entirely original with myself ; but having had some experience wilhin the lastyear , I propose to write down tfiat experience ; and should you think it advisable , you can publish it or not as you think best . In the first place then , I think that Providence couid never have created a section of country , and better . adapted , it to the wants of tiie Farmer than is this Western Prairie country ; unless tie had built houses and fenced farms . It certainly is no longer a question to be ask...

I then pack two hundred weight of ham in my barrel , prepare a pickle , by putting six gallons of water in a boiler , with twelve pounds of salt , twelve ounces ol saltpetre , and two quarts of molasses . This I stir sufficiently to dissolve tho salt , Ac , and let boil and skim it .

DRAR SHI—In your paper for October is an article on Butter , which I think needs a little correction . You say that on account of the superiority of Mr . Vials Butter , he has received 15 cents per lb . during the season , while other butter has went begging purchasers at 6 to 8 cents per pound . In the first place 1 would not wish lo be understood as saying any thing against Mr .

I have sold several hundred pounds this season at different times in lots of from 50 to 100 lbs . without previously contracting it , and that too without , an ) difficulty in finding cash customers , at the uni form pri...
