AGRIOULTURE. H YnU1InzINU WHEAT. - Another maxim which farmers generally ac eept as an axiom Is, that by sowing wheats of different qualities together, they will so hybridize as to produce a mixed breed; while even a little obser vation would teach them the error of this conclusloi., and that each grain produces its own like, and that really no hybridization takes place at all, and that the mixture of seed produce the unmaltigated evil of inixing wheats which perhaps ripen at different pe riods, or perhaps require dill'rent treat iment when they come to be reducett to flour. A little study of the nature of plants would seem to be necessary to a knowledge of their proper treatment during their giowth. Of the flowers of plints some are male and soine fe male. In soie the staminate and pis tillate flowers occupy different parts of the same plants, as iII Indian corn. in the larger number of plants the male and female organs mature at the same time in the same flower-t and of these some...
