AM ESSAY ON THE IMPORTANCE OF LIME IN SOILS . —No . 4 . Br DABIM LAPIUM , CIVIL ENOIKKR . Continued from page 86 . 9 . Carbonate of Lime . —Vniei the term of carbonate of lime , may bo included , not only pulverized and disintegrated limestone , but likewise all the various description , of marl , or any substance containing a moiolyof caloaroous earth . The term , carbonate of lime , conveys a distinct and definite idea , always meaning a compound of fifty-six ports of pure lime , and forty-foar parts of carbonic acid ; but the term , mart , is very indefinite , and requires to be qualified by some adjective , to give il an approach lo definitiveness ; such as , shell marl , day marl , marly clay , green sand marl , & c . But the value of marl for agricultural purposes depends partly upon the quantity of calcareous matter contained in it , and partly upon oihor component parts , which may be useful as fertilizers of the soil , or as correctives and amendment , of tho co...

CATTLE SHOW AND FAIR OF THE U A S AT AURORA . _ 1 wo prouder days for Illinois—yea , for tho GKEAT V , EST , tho sun never rose upon than tho 19 th and 20 th of October at Aurora . Long will thoy bo remembered with pleasure and satisfaction by the thousands of noble hearts , who by their presence and aid added so much to the hilarity of tho occasion . Copious showers of rain on Monday and Tuesday just sufficed to lay the dust ; and Wednesday , the first day of the exhibition , was ushered in with almost a cloudless sky . Providence indeed smiled upon the enterprise , favoring tho attendant multitude with two of our delightful autumnal days ; and nothing could have been more appropriate than the prayer of the Rev . Mr . COOK at the organization „ f the meeting , and tho return of thanks for past and pacnt favors . It was doubtless joined in most rcarnly by tho many farmers in attendance ; than whom , surely none have greater occasion for gratitiidc WHIM , who has crowned their labors...

USEFUL RECIPES , [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1842

USEFUL RECIPES , DISEASES OF SHEEP . ( Continued from page 8 G . ) Causes of Rot—K any one had been asked 30 years ago , the cause , or rather causes . o ! the appearances which pass under the name of rot he could not have enumerated them even in a day , for at that time each symptom was a disease , and as such was reckoned worthy of a separate and proximat e cause . Nor could any person have had the courage to promulgate a common sense opinion on lie ubjeci ; for simple . vieOT regarding the diseases of domestic animals were then cither not deemed worthy of a moment s notice , or , if considered , were swept . at once by the strong current of prejudice , into the tad ocean j | - predetermined disapproval . Opinions in cattle medicine were at that time valued according to the prolixity of their detail ; and ,, o more improbable the dependence of the ,. fcis upon the cause assigned so much - ore was ifc discoverer lauded , and in like pronuriinn was the ciiimorical fabric ho had rais...
