9 W D ---":vf.- ' r o o f fljtJjaa Jim fim AGRICULTURAL. 3?rom the Chambcrsburg (Pa.) Repository and Whig, THE MANURE HEAP. Among the characteristics of a good farmer, the attention that is paid to husbanding and in- creasing'the manure heap is prehaps, one of the ntiost distinguishing. The farmer may plow his soil most skilfully, and in proper season, and perform all the operations attending his pursuit in a creditable manner, but unless he restore to the soil the constituents that he abstracts from it by means of his crops, his procedure is irrational, and his labor cannot remain remu nerative. Nature does much to relieve the ex haustion 'Occasioned to the soil by the improvi, dence and ignorance of man; the genial show ers of summer and the snows of winter alike contribute to nrich the earth, while the atmos phere is a constant source of nourishment to Vegetation. But nature only aids man in his "efforts to preserve the fertility of his cultivated lands. She has, it is tine, plac...

r AGRICULTURAL. REPORT ON DAIRIES. We have heretofore copied a part of the Re port "made to the Jefferson Co. (NT. Y.) Ag. So ciety at it3 last meeeting, by its "Viewing Com mittee." We now give what they say upon the subject of butter and cheese making: In examining the butter dairies, we did" not find that excellence and uniformity in color, fa tor and salting that would have Tesultcd from a more fixed rule of proceeding than appears to have been adopted. There appears to be too much of a hap haz ard' system, or want of system, in the business of butter making; or too much departure from necessary rules. We would therefore recommencUa strict ad ierence to the following regulations: 1st. Provide a convenient room, if possible a cellar, from 7i to 8 ft. high, so situated that the arr can freely circulate through it when neces sary. Let the walls be plastered, the ceiling whitewashed, and the floor flaged or cemented, and allow nothing to be stored in the rooms but the pans, milk, an...

A w 7 For Loudon Free Press. Mtssrs Editors: I submit the following for publication, if you think it worthy a place in the columns of your piper. That season of the year has already arrived when if the farmer would gather a prolific crop, in the Autumnal months, he should be following his Agricultural pursuits with avidity, and since so much is de pending on his success, every inducement should be held out for his encouragement. The present difficulties in the East, threaten a general European War. The consequence of which will be a very great shipment of bread stuff's trom our ports at advanced prices. But this, the inevitable results of devastation and ruin which ever follow in the wake of war does not afford so pleasing an encouragement to the Intelligent and benevolent farmer, as the follow ingstatement of the nett yield of two fields, culti. tivated by Aquilla Everett, and V. II. Thompson in the Ilackberry, contiguous to Loudon, Roane County. The one cultivated by the former, o...

A permanent manure is one, in which the plant-feeding ingredients are so far insoluble, as in coarsely crushed bones, for instance, that the plants take but little of them the first year, little the second, and so on for ...
