H COKSEU . op sMraiXog CO ., ILL . At this late day , I presume it will no longer be disputed that our climate is well adapted to wool growing , and also for the fattening of mutton . I have been growing wool in this State for the last fourteen years , and several years previous in the State of New York . — When I first saw Illinois and its Prairies I arrived at the same conclusion with many others at that time , having been raised amongst the hills and rocks of the East—that the Prairies were too low and level for the health of sheep and thendevelopment . It is a very-common idea that sheep Will only do weE 5 in a hilly country , from the fact thatmuch of the low , level lands , of those countries are inclined to be springy and mossy , and that sheep confined to such . pastures , soon get diseased , ...

Clean np ! Glean np ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Clean np ! Glean np ! Editor- of the Farmer : —Most of the articles in your paper are addressed to farmers and about the business of farming . But you neglect somethings of some importance . Every woman is told that her house is her kingdom , and its man agement especially belongs to her . To some extent this is true . When the house is made comfortable and the surroundings pleasant , it should be her business as far as possible to keep them So . A woman of ambition has some taste in regard to the appearance of the outside as well as the inside of her kingdom . — She likes to see th » grounds about the house kept neat , and this she cannot do without the assistance of the men . Men are prone to carelessness . They think it all ri ght to lumber up the grounds about the house with all the broken implements of the farm . I know a neighbor who has a fine yard if kept in order , that now looks as though it was the general receptacle of all the cast off articles of the farm . In passing t...

Calves . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Calves . Nothing is more important to the successful rearing of stock , than that the young animals should receive a good start in life , and it is idle to expect a profitable return from an animal which has been half starved and uncared for during the first few months of its existence . When we look into a farm yard and see the young calves cringing and shivering in the corners , their legs drawn together under them as if they were huddling together for sympathy , their long , rusty , lifeless looking hair standing at right angles with the body , their paunches stuffed with coarse , unwholesome , or inutritious food , until they are swelled to an enormous size , their eyes dull , dreamy and listless , and the whole general appearance impressing one vivid ly with the idea that there is indeed such a thing as a state of semi-existence , we do not require to be told that the owner is a poor man . Such management will make any man poor in a short time . A large portion of the cattle ra...

More Staples . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

More Staples . Editor of the Farmer : —The Agricultural press has had much to say of the benefit to be derived by our farmers by increasing the number of their crops , so that if one fails , they will have others to fall back upon . This subject should bo pressed upon the attention of our farmers . We have tried wheat as a great staple , and in its failure all have suffered . Now my opinion is that if we had succeeded with our large wheat crops for the two last years , they would not have paid as well as good crops of corn . Wheat is not high in the Eastern markets . Although the crops last year was confessedl y short , the prices in New York would scarcely justify the wheat operators in the West to buy , at low prices , wheat for shipping . The truth is , wheat raising will not pay well here unless there is a war , or short crops in Europe , to raise the prices . Europe dont want our wheat when she has good crop seasons . Thia fact shows that our farmers are leaning on a frail supp...

"Icis Land and Better Culture . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Icis Land and Better Culture . Editor of the Farmer : —A friend sent me some days ago the Wisconsin Farmer , a monthly agricultural paper , published at Madison Wisconsin . I was struck with a remark in the first article I read . It was headed Less land and better culture , and , said the editor , If we had a voice like a trumpet , that might be heard all over our State , our first utterance would be , Farmers eon tent yourselves uith such farms as you can thoroughly cultivate . That s the doctrine , Mr . Editor ! We have wasted our labor and lost our crops and got our lands into a bad state , by our system of cultivation . Unless blasted with frost , or hail , or hurricane , we can make crops every year , of such as are suited to our climate and soil , by thorough cultivation . And to do this , we must so drain our lands , that the water will run off from them . We must plow deep , so that the roots of plants can go down deep if weather be dry , and if wet so that water may be enco...

Breeding Ewes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Breeding Ewes . We find in a , late number of the Mark Lane Express , an article in relation to the selection , care and management of breeding ewes , from which we extract snch portions as are of most interest to American breeders : The aequiring and maintaining a flock of ewes in good and uniform condition and character requires a vast amount of judgment and perseverance , combined with care and attention ; judgment in selecting that breed or description which will give the greatest return , taking into consideration the soil and situation where they are to be kept , also in choosing male animals that will rectify and improve the imperEections of the ewes ; care and attention are also necessary in drawing the ewes to that ram which appears most calculated to correct their faults , persevering in this course till they become of one uniform character ; that is , not resting satisfied before you obtain them as near alike as possible as regards symmetry , description of wool , and gen...

Blood tecs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Blood tecs . A writeT in the Spirit of ffie Times says : The following are some of the many reasons why the stock bred , or warm blooded racer , is vastly superior to , and more valuable than the stock of the common horse ; 1 st . They have more and better brains , or more sense—more intelligence—and their disposition is more kind and tractable . 2 d . When properly viewed they have a refining and elevating influence—man with his refined sensibilities has semi-socialized the horse , and now he seems to be happy , as he shares the kind feeling and ministers to the happiness of man : As a man sowcth so shall he also reap ; where Deity creates , tis surely mans dignity to cultivate . 3 d . They are more free from disease ; their action is more free and elastic ; their form is more beautiful ; and their carraige is more elegant and showy . 4 th . They arc more active and can endure excessive heat much better . A fine blood horse can travel long distances rapidly iu the hottest weather ,...

The Best Whitewash that wc Know of . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

The Best Whitewash that wc Know of . The arrival of the house-cleaning and house-repairing season , and several recent inquiries , remind us to again refer to that first-rate in-door white-wash we described last June . Nearly a years trial has confirmed all wc said of it . Our house ceilings , and the walls where not papered , which received one coat last May , are now as white as after a usual fresh coat of lime , and wc have not been iu the least trouble with its rubbing off . The numerous published receipts , to the contrary notwithstanding , wc believe no preparation of lime or other material will adhere well without the addition of the glue , oil or varnish . The latter two articles arc expensive , and caustic lime mixed with glue will soon change its color . White chalk is itncaitstic lime , ( carbonate of lime , and this substance is the best substitute for lime , as a white-wash . A very fine and brilliant white , washed preparation of chalk is called Paris White . This we b...

Goodnle & Co . Cirrular for April . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Goodnle & Co . Cirrular for April . CLEVELAND WOOL DEPOT . DEAR SIR . —Our receipts for the past month have been confined mostly to pulled wools with a few medium clips . We think that the fine clips through Ohio and the West are closed out . We quote : Fancy clip at 65 Full blood 55 Three-fonrtha blood 50 Onerhalf blood 47 One-fourth blood 44 Common 41 These prices for domestic wools are very fully sustained , whilst pulled wools in our market have deelined , with less demand . — The city pullers , however , have very small stocks on hand and we notice a very marked decline in sheep pelts , as some of our pelt buyers have been largely engaged in purchasing skuuk pelts which during the warm days of March have declined in price . It would not be surprising if this strong declining favor of this new article of commerce had some influence in working down the price of sheep pelts . There seems to be an absence of the usual number of Eastern buyers in the field and the cause ...

White Beans . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

White Beans . Editor of the Farmer : —As one of the crops which should be raised in our State , mention may be made of White Beans . If cultivated with system , and with an understanding of all the wants required for the sucessfnl growing of this crop , a good yield may bo expected . — Beans usually bring a fair price . I havo known them sell for $ 3 a bushel and also for 75 cents a bushel . Prairie the second season after breaking , is usually good land for beans . It is then lig ht and clean from weeds . — The seed can be drilled in , in rows three feet apart , and about three inches between the plants . They will come up readily , and , with the soil I mention , free of weeds , they will require but little care Our lands are all rich enough indeed , they are richer for beans , without manure , than is desirable . When the Beans are up four inches , the cultivator should pass between the rows . If there are weeds among the beans , they should be wed out . This cultivation should b...

. ^ Union Fairs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

. ^ Union Fairs . ¦ E ditor of the Farmer : —AVh y cannot Union Eairs , to be gotten up by the Agricultural Societies , of three or four adjoining Counties , be made useful ? It is too late to agitate this subject for the present year , but some thoughts may properly be given to it . A Union Fair in which the counties of Sangamon , Morgan , Macoupin , Menard , Lincoln and Macon , and perhaps some others , could unite , would be a grand affair . The first Eair could be held in Morgan or Sangamon and then could travel all around so as to embrace every count y named . It seems to me that the measure would get up a great interest , second only to that of the State Fair . By another season every county I have named Trill be on a Railroad , and stock and other articles for Exhibition conld be transported to the Union Fair ground by the cars , and visitors could also reach the Fair by Railroad from all the counties . I cannot doubt that the Railroads would find it for their interest to fur...

Sntiiial History : For tlia Illinois Fanner . laessig . SlDBPsTSBOio , Jackson Co . m . April 12 th . 1859 . As the grasshoppers are beginning to make their appearance , I select them as the subject of this article , not in the order we find them in the books , but as they are appearing this season . The insects we commonly call grasshoppersbelong to the families GryUidae and Socustidae ; of tho order Orthoptera distinguished from each others by the long antennae and exserted ovipositor of the former , while in the latter family the antennaeare shorter than the body and the ovipositav wanting . Fetrixis the name of a genius belonging to the family Socustidae , which was established by Labreille , and distinguish ed by the enlarged protliorax , which like a horny shield extends back over the entire abdomen , and terminates in a point , and by the small wing covers which are reduced to little scales on the sides of the body . All of our species of this genius are small , none exceedin...

Hie fotaloe Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

Hie fotaloe Crop . % \\ t gJHmois Janitor . SPRl XUII JEI , I > , MAY 1 , 1800 . The value of the potatoe crop is rarely estimated by our farmers . Within the last fifteen years , the consumption has been greatly increased . It is an acceptable food in all forms in which it is prepared at every meal . It ought to be a cheap food ; and if it were cheap , it would greatl y lessen the expenses of families . A few years ago there seemed to be no difficulty in procuring good crops in Central Illinois . They were rarely affected by the rot , and their quality was excellent . The pink eyes and the Irish Greys were tho leading varieties , and they were of good size and as fine as could be desirod . Afterwards other varieties were introduced—such as the Boston Blues , White Neshannocks , Mercers , Peach Blows , Kidneys , Jackson Red Eye , White Mexicans—several of which proved to be good , though the seasons were unfavorable , and some are yet on probation , promising well . .

The Mill . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1859

The Mill . Notwithstanding the general regard the public have for the Robin , many fruit growers within the last few years have imbibed great prejudices against him , regarding him as of very serious injury to fruits . At a meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society , in January , 1858 , a resolution was offered by E . S . Rand , jr ., to the effect that a petition be presented to the State Legislature for the repeal of the laws which prohibit the taking and killing of this bird . Qn the presentation of the resolution , an animated discussion took place —the result of which was that a committee was appointed to make a thorough investigation of the habits of the Robin , Prof . Jenks , Chairman . At the last January meeting , Prof . Jenks made his report to the society . — His investigations were very thorough . Beginning with the first week of March , 1858 , he obtained and examined specimens at least weekly , and most of the time dail y , to December , and during the winter ...
