The farm, on which he has lived since 1821, Was pur chased soon after reselling this country from Scotland, and the land at the time was not thought to be valuable, as the crops that grew on it were light. ' But it was fortunate for me," said Mr. John ston, that I had learned in the old coun try the value of manure, and how to ap ply it. It wns fortunate also that I understood the advantage of draining, for I soon found that was the first great want of my farm. 1 sent to Scotland for samples of tiles and had them made here. My improvemt to ts, through draining, soon attracted great attention. I drained my farm as rapidly as I could meet the ex pense, a...
