From the Qtrmantoum Telegraph. Value of Nitrate of Soda as a Ufa FARM & KITUHM i mire. In very many sections of our country, this article is now extensively used as a stimulant for soils, and especially for those cultivated in grain and grass, in our late agricultural journals of , lhe better class, I have lately noticed some very interesting accounts, all going to confirm the fact that the nitrate of soda is an economical and efficient fertilizer, particularly when applied lo the above crops. In a Liverpool paper, the following has lately appeared, and we copy ii, in hopes lhat some who may have hitherto questioned the utility of this and similar applications, may be induced lo test its virtues for themselves, and ihus be enabled lo judge underslandingf y whether it is capable of being made an economical adjuvant{in the great and important process of vegetable nutrition, or not.

ELECT MISCELLANY. Oiner Paslm'8 History. The son of a poor1 Austrian Lieutenant of the name of Hattah, Oiner was, in his youth, appointed Sub- inspector of Roads of Dulmutia. Already he was tired of Austria, whoso government he detested. Turkey being the neighboring country, offered him the best chance of making his fortune; with a passport and some money he passed the frontier, and entered by the village of Omer-Assay. Hardly had he penetrated into Cosnia, than he was plundered by robbers of all he possessed, even to his shirt. A Turkish peasant took pity on him, and" furnished him with clothes and money. Arriving at Benja Louka without resources, he was happy to find employment In the house of a Turkish merchant, he had a daughter, with whom the young Austrian became enamored, and was about to marry her, when unfortunately sho died. From this time Ilaltah turned Mahometan, and took the name of Orqer,. in remembrance of the first, Turkish village he stopped at. From Denja L...

Farmers, Look to your Forests. The forests of Western New Yprk, and indeed of a\J the Western Slates are disappearing like the morning mist fromlihe hills. The increased rapidity of this destruction is hardly manifest, because the landmarks of the forest disappear after a few years', and give place to fertile fields. I' Prominent among the enemies of Hie forest (although it must be admitted a friend to humanity) is lhe railroad. The immense amount of timber used in the construction and management of railroads can hardly be conceived. Bridges, ties, and fuci, create such a demand for the products of (he forcsl, lhat they disappear before it as ih jy do belore a devouring fire.; Nothing it spared.

The women ride on the hind quarters of their horses without a saddle, cross legged, with the load on the horse in front.

It the First milk Pohou? A friend informs us ihnt Mr. FI. B. Wyman, of Sidney, lost a valuable sow not long ago, in consequence of giving her the first milk of the cow after calving, and asks if it invariably causes such trouble if hogs are fed on it. We believe that it does. We one year gave such milk to a sow thut was with p i g. It made her sick and she cast her pigs before her time, all of which were dead. We were told that such would be the result if we fed her with il, but we were faithless. The next year wo fed it to atjbther under the same circumstance and the same—all the pigs were dead. Wo found that ralher cosily experimenting, and we have never tried it again. Last spring one of our nei g hbors who had a very fine sow, fed her with a pretty generous portion cf such milk, she immediately became sick and came near dying. And now we have the fact related of Mr. Wy man's sow, as above. We think those experiments sufficient to warrant the conclusion, that such milk is...
