AGRICULTURAL. Improvement of Meadows. Viip.n we consider tho Inrgo propor tion of meadow land which lias for ages received tlio wasli from tho cattle on a thousand hill, and ia still of little value, wo find this to he iv subject of groat im portance, especially to tho fanners of New England. Having had ten years' experience with ten acres of tho Cogiiichang Swamp, containing over a thousand acres, situa ted In tho towns of Durham nnd Mitlt 1 - fleld, Connecticut, I send you the result, knowing that uotigiit wit is the best. Tho soil of this meadow Is a mixtures of flay and sand. The .surface is usually covered with water In tho Winter, and frequently in tho Summer; tho produce in Its natural state fs btftrushes, skunk cabbage, and coarso meadow herbage. The previous owner of my lot, acting on tho wrong theory that high cultiva tion and manuring for several years would bring tho soil into a better condi tion for grass, had half tho lot ploughed , tsitbsoilcd,hlghly manured, planted with corn, potatoes,and other crops, which did well tho first year, while tho old turf re mained. The second year there was a fall ing oft", and tlio third year it full into my hands. Not knowing what else to do, I followed my predecessor's example, and itad itploughed,working in as much good fiarnyard manure as possible, and plant 1. This was dono so late, on account of tho condition of tho land, that tho hoeing came in haying-timo, and tho July sun fo baked tho surface that tho cultivator broke it up in hard cakes ; so that it was about as easy to earth up a hill of corn as it would have been in one of the neighboring trap rock mountains. The crops hardly paid for tho labor. Tho next Spring I had the piece sowed with oats, grass, and coarso bone. Tho weeds camo in so that tho oats wero hardly worth harvesting, and tlio grass was kept out for several years. I then had tho other half of the piece, which was in its natural state, ploughed iu September with a Nourno No. ".0 plough, throwing it up iu beds two rodrf wido, and turning furrows eighteen in ches wide and nino inches deep, covering tlio bogs completely. 1 then tried a fctjuare-tooth harrow. This tore tlio sod in pieces, and did much more harm than good. 1 then tried asteel-tooth cultiva tor. This did well, but a Share's har row did as well, and much faster. I had it harrowed lengthwiso of tlio beds, working in twenty bushels of coarso bono to tho acre. I then had tho dead furrows cleaned out, and tho edges of tho beds rounded olT. 1 then had it feceded with timothy and red-top rolled in, and tho following Spring clover. I had a fine crop of clean grass tho first season, tho land being worth double tho other half tho lot, which had received threo years' cultivation and sixty loads of tho best manure to the acre, besides a largo amount of fertilizers. Tho grass continued good for three or four years, when it run out, coarso grass coming in. I then had a piece ploughed again with a common plough, and har rowed in about eight loads of good manure to tho acre, and seeded as before. I took at tho same tlmo a timber piece and had it top-drcscd with tlio same amount of manure, and nothing else. This last piece did much better than the ilrst, tho timothy standing so thick and oven that it looked like a piece of grain . at a distance. Tlio following is tho result of my ex perience : 1st, that this soil should never Taj exposed in Summer ; 2d, that no amount of manure will compensate for tho loss of tlio turf by repeated cultiva tion j Sd, that one load of immuro as a top-dressing is worth two loads harrow ed in after ploughing, or four loads ploughed In that thoscedlng from sim ply top-dressing Is much better than can beobtaluedbyploughingandro-scedlng. I have slneo top-dressed each part with about eight loads of barnyard manure to tho aero every four years, applied Just before tho Full rains. I get a ton and a half of flnohay to tho acre, worth about twenty dollars an aero more than tlio natural grass on tho adjoining land, which Iscqually as good land. Thoprollt pays for tho Improvement every two years, and tho lot was never us good as at this time. Now, supposo that a thousand acres of tho adjoining land was improved in tho Kimo way, thero would bo a gain of twenty thousand dollars n year in tills ono tract of land, and yet thero are bcores of men who witness my Improve ment every year, and still allow their land to produco coarso grass, worth from ono to threo dollars an ncre, whllo they are travelling round seeking Investment for surplus funds. 11. II'. Matheioon, in Country Gentleman. To Destroy the Hop Insect. l- W. Collins, nn experienced culti vator of hops, writes to tho American Farmer that u decoction of tobacco, strong enough to kill ticks on sheep, or the bhto lousoon colts or calves, is Direct ive against vermin on hop vines. Others use strong soapsuds made with toft soap and tobacco water, with one pound of copperas to every llvo gallons of the liquor. Tills wash is applied to the vino when trained on tho horizontal plan, by a syringe, or, If on the plan of long poles, with a force pump, or garden en gine pump, to throw tlio liquid with force against the underside of the leaves, as the louse Is always thero first. The writer adds! " It Is of great Importance to tho hop-grower to secure a large crop this year, as even if tho crop Is a full one, the price must be high, nnd If It should bo a partial failure, tlio prlco will rise very high. There aru two causes for this: 1st, tire rapid increase In the demand for hops; and I'd, tho destruc tion of hop yards the past season, owing to cutting the vine at picking, as Is prac tised in yards on long poles. Tho vines were cut early, and the open Winter left the roots, after a mo4 severe drain upon their vitality by loss of sap, exposed throughout its wholo extent to severe frost. Jinny yards ko treated wero wholly destroyed, or so Injured as to cause them to bo ploughed up this Spring.'' POR YOUTHFUL READERS. The Goblin's Chestnuts. litTTi.K Gi'.oitm: was trudging along witli a great bushel-basket slung at his back, a market-basket on each arm, two smaller baskets In tho bushel-basket, and tho least basket of them all slung about ills neck. George was bare-footed ; George shlv ered, for his Jacket was very old, and tho October morning wns cold as well as bright. George was hungry. Oat meal, with butter and salt, may be all very well, but oatmeal for breakfast, oatmeal for dinner, and nothing for sup per, every day in the week, is not good growing material for little boys; and George was hungry nearly half tho time. And, dually, Georgo was very sorry at heart, for his mother was a widow. She had been ill that Summer, and could not do as much spinning and sewing as usual. Consequently, she was not ready with her rent ; and Mr. Dawson, their landlord, was a hard man, just the fob low to turn Georgo and his mother out of doors, and keep their one little bed for rent. Georgo was going to Squire Dawson's Woods to gather chestnuts ; not for him self, but for Squire Dawson. He was to till tho bushel-basket, tho two smaller ba.-kots in it, and the two market-bas kets, for Squire Dawson ; and that least basket of all, hanging about his neck, he might till for himself and take home to his mother as his wages. That was a very mean bargain ; but, then, theSquire was a mean man, and had grown rich iu a mean way, you - ee. There were plenty of che-luuts lying on tlio ground, for a great wind had been thrashing the old trees, and the ground was thick with the brown-look ing nuts ; but the wind, having thrashed tho trees, thought, it lino. fun to thrash Georgo also, and it blew his hat oh", and his hair in his eyes, and Happed his jack et about, and found its way in under it, and pinched Ids nose and his lingers, as if it had been Jack Frost himself. "What a bitter cold wind!" saitl George to himself, with a shiver. "That's so," rehired a voice from behind the tree. "Ho spent tho night with mo; and we Goblins think we know how to keep warm, but he nearly frozo us out. I told tho old fellow he had his Winter cap on by mistake." "Kb? What!" said Georgo to him self; and getting up from his knees, looked carefully all about him, but see ing nothing, concluded he had thought all that. " Hut then it is very curious I should think of such a thing," ho said to himelf. " "Why don't you look where I am?" said the old voico again. "If I had been a poodle I would have bitten you long ago." And sure enough, thero on a stone, just iu front of hlni, sat a little brown thing, as brown as a chestnut, only it hud a race like a man, nnd was buttoned In a thick overcoat up to Its chin, as It sat on a btone, smoking a little short pipe. " I have been watching you fill your baskets," said this queer object, with a nod. " You will have a heavy basket to carry homo for yourself. How you will ever get It homo I don't see. I should think It would hold very nearly a quart of nuts. There will bo enough to last you and your mother all tho Winter, I should say." " I don't eo why you should mako so much fun," answered George, a little provoked. , " A few nuts are better than none, and my mother is very fond of them. I am euro we have littlo enough to bo glad of anything, no matter how small." "You littlo silly l" said tho Goblin. " Why don't you fill tho bushel basket full, and carry it homo? Who would know It? Take a cut across tho fields, and who Is there to see you?" "That Is stealing," said George, nnd went back to his work without another word. He thought that thlsmnst bo u wicked Goblin, since ho was urging him to steal, and felt a little afraid. "Hut, then, if I do right, ho surely cannot hurt me," said George to himself, and worked away stoutly. "If I were not too lazy, I would help you," Hold tho Goblin, as Georgo lifted tho great bushel-basket. " liut It is so much pleasanter kicking tip your heels Iu tlio sun than tugging and straining at bushel-baskets." " Thank you for nothing," answered George, who began to think this was a sneaking sort of a Goblin, nnd heartllv hoped that ho would have taken hiimclf oil" by tho tlmo that ho camo back after his other baskets. Hut no, there ho was, lolling in tlio sun, and smoking Ids pipei and watching George carry off each' basket, as If ho had never seen a boy picking chestnuts before. At last George came to his own littlo basket. "Stop a moment," said tho Goblin, and pulled threo chestnuts out of his pocket. " 1 lore are threo mits from my own chestnut-tree. Take them homo to your mother, and seo which sho likes best the Squire's nuts or mine." "Why, ho is a mean Goblin, too, thought George. "Ho Is worse than tho Squire." Still he put tho nuts in his pocket; and when lie had told tho story to his mother, sho was at once curious to try them. Georgo peeled ono of the nuts at once. "How do you do?" said a littlo man, stepping out; "tho Goblin has sent mo here to cut your wood, mend your fences, mako your garden, and bo your servant." And, shouldering his nxo, ho went out Into tho forest, where they heard him hacking and bowing nt tho trees. " Quick, quick 1" said George, " let us seo what is In tho other two;" nnd ho began peeling away, laughing all tho time. " What do you mako a body's head ring so for?" said a littlo woman, step ping out with a spinning-wheel and be ginning to spin. " If you had sent mo out of my senses with your clatter,, It would havo been your loss ; for the Gob tin sent me to spin and sew for you, and be your servant." And setting up her wheel, she began to spin. George wns now in such a Hut ter, between curiosity and impatience, that ho could hardly crack the third at all ; but as It Hew open, both ho and his mother screamed outright, for there was a great, long purse, full of gold." "That will pay tlio rent," said the widow. " And buy you a shawl and a gown." "And you a jacket and a coat, and shoes." "And a cow " " And another bed" " And send you to school" " And get you some tea that you like so ; but, dear me, to think that 1 never thanked tlio Goblin." "He! he! he!" tittered the Goblin, peeping at them from the chimney. WIT AND WISDOM. How was Jonah punished ? Whaled. Coi.'.vrmt -attu action A pretty saleswoman. Wm:x has a man four hands? "When he doubles his lists. Why ought a greedy man to wear a plaid waistcoat ? To keep a check upon Ids stomach. A rooit man who had been ill, on be ing asked by a gentleman whether ho had taken a remedy, replied : " No, I ain't taken any remedy, but I have taken lots of physic." Josh Billinos says ho has got a good recollection, but not a good memo ry. He recollects having lost ten dollars the other night, but don't remember where ho lost it. A witty doctor of divinity, whose physicians had ordered him for a time on a purely vegetable diet, demurred, on tho ground that " ho should not bo able to say grace before meat."

Tin: following somewhat remarkable advertisement appeared in the columns of a recent number of a newspaper: "Lost by a poor lad tied up in brown paper with a white string, a German lluto in an overcoat, and several other articles of wearing apparel." Tin: mayor of a country town was questioning tlio boys at the ragged school, and ho asked them what wero tho pomps and vnnltiesof this wicked world. Ho asked them ono by one, but they could not tell him. At last a littlo boy near the bottom said, "1 know, sir. Tho mayor and corporation going to church, sir." A Chinimi: widow fanning tho tomb of her deceased husband, and belngask ed tho cause of so singular a mode of showing her grief, accounted for It by saying that ho had made her promise not to marry again whllo tho mortar of his tomb remained damp; and as it dried but slowly, she saw no harm in aiding tho operation.

Some were not awaro of tho curious fact ; others set to work to give learned and long rea-ons; but all were anxious to know tho real cause. After keeping them wondering for awhile, ho said : " Tho reason is, be cause there are more of them." JOS. Hi KG EL A 11. S.
