[ The comparative failure of tlie har vest in the •Xews?!~V district once more , demonstrates the wisdom of scientific ' farming, but farmers are loth to depart from the old trust-to-Providenee meth ods. According 10 our Xcwstead cor respondent, good laud that had been under crop continuously for a number of years yielded only half of what in ferior land lately brought into culti vation returned.
