Farm, Garden and Household, Poultry ParaBltei. The tine of Bftflsnf rsa wood for perches and nest boxes has been repeatedly reo ommcnd as a preventive of vermin in poultry houRes. A recent correspondent of the Poultry Bulletin famishes to that paper an artiole from the American Farmer of 1819, in which it is most positively as serted that sassafras possesses this vir tue. Every year or two this same old Btory is repeated by theorizing writers pn poultry affairs. Why is it that such idle statements so often find their way into print ? In this case it must be owing to a misunderstanding of terms as well as to ignorance of the nature of Borne of our poultry nests. The term " vermin," as used in the article abvo mentioned, is explained to mean chicken Hoe, yet the writer no doubt "referred to what are commonly known ns "jiggers," or chicken mites ; for chicken lice proper live on the bodies of the fowls, while the mites in fest the perches, and trouble the fowls chiefly at night.

How the Battles were Fought Very few of the battles in which I have pnrticipated, says Gen. (Sherman, in his Lessons of the War, were fought ns described in European text books, viz. : in great masses, in perfect order, mnno5uvering by corps, divisions, and brigades. We were generally in a wood ed country, and though our lines were deployed according to the tactics, the men generally fought in strong skirm ish lines, taking every advantage of the ground, nnd of every oover. We were generally the assailants, and in wooded and broken countries the " defensive " bad a positive advantage over ns, for they were always ready, had cover, and always knew the ground to their im mediate front, whereas, we, their as sailants, had to grope our way over unknown ground, and generally found a cleared field or prepared entangle ments that held ns for a time under a close and withering fire. Rarely did the opposing lines in compact order eome into actual contact, but when, as at Peach-tree creek and...

Farm, Garden and Household, Kitchen Garden. Prepare oold-frnmeB for wintering the young cabbaere plants grown from seed the last month. The frames should be a foot high at the back, and eight inches In the front, and the width of the length of a common sash, viz., six feet. Set out the plants two to three inches apart each way, putting them down to the leaves J cover in freezing weather, but not before, as the object is to keep them dormant. Treat cauliflowers in the same way os cabbages. Finish earthing up the celery, bank ing the earth well np to the stalks, nearly to the top of the leaves. In cold loonlities it may be stored in trenches the latter part of the month. Some of the hardy varieties of lottnoe will winter over in the open ground, if covered with loaves or litter. For early spring use the plants should be set in the cold-frames the same as cabbages.

Farm, Garden and Household. Drill Bowing Wheat. Every year's experience is In favor of drilling wheat. It shows more and more that, as against sowing the seed broadcast, it is economical in labor and in seed, and gives a better crop. The difference in labor is at least $1.00 an acre, or the cost of two harrowings after sowing, or one cultivating. The difference in seed is at leant half a bushel, or BO cents to a $1.00 an aore. and the difference in the crop is fully one-fourth, or upon fairly good soil, six bushels or nine dollars per acre. Eleven dollars per aore upon ten acres will more than pay for the best drill made, which will sow ten acres a day. But if the means of purchasing a drill are not available, nnd there are less than ten acres of wheat to be sown, it will yet pay to hire a drill, which may be done from some neighbor, fortunate enough to possess one, for 50 cents per acre. We have not yet seen a part of the country whore a drill could not be purchased or hired, and v...
