gor fly lainttr.
[From Cho Germattovm Telegaph.]
MR. FREAS :—The cultivation of much
light land, which otherwise might be of great
value, is often rendered difficult if not almost
impossible, by the tendency it exhibits to
produce real sorrel. I have known whole
fields to be abandoned simply in consequence
of the preponderance of this - pest over more
valuable vegetation. Yet this is not the
proper course to adopt in such an emergency.
Sorrel never finds sustenance, and of course
can never grow where there is lime enough
in the soil. Land of this kind possesses a
sweetness which is not congenial to sorrel,
and if takes root, it rarely outlives the first
year, and never spreads. By liming lands
infested with this weed, or by overcoming
their acidity by liberal applications of house
ashes, they will become fertile in other pro
ductions, even though the sorrel should have
monopolised them entirely. Sorrel is not
wholly valueless. It may be fed profitably
to sheep and horses during winter ; or it may
be ground, (the seed) and fed to swine. Yet
no farmer will ever think of cultivating it.—
When it - will grow—as many contend is some
times the case, despite all reasonable efforts
to restrain it—it would be well to appropri
ate it to some use which will prevent, in
some degree, the inevitable loss its growth
involves, and for this purpose we know of
none more effectual than the above.
One thing to - which it may not be improp
er to allude is, that lands which have once pro
duced a crop of mature sorrel seed—whether
that crop be cut for hay or turned in, will not
be likely to be purified "in a hurry," by any
process whatever, unless it involves an entire
and thorough constitutional change of the soil;
which lime, and lime only, (perhaps) can
completely insure. The seed of this pest is
so hard, or rather the shell of it is so indura
ted that it will remain on, or far beneath the
surface, for years, without injury. Hence
lands natural to its production, when once
well stocked, with it, though they may be
turned out to pasture, or cultivated with the
most adroit skill and assiduity, will, on being
laid down again, become immediately foul.—
Sorrel rarely maintains its appearance or
place among cultivated grasses more than
two or three seasons, but afterwards re-ap
pears in full vigor as soon as the land is bro
Lands common to sorrel are, on many ac
counts, the most valuable for arable purpo
ses, being light, and remarkably easy to
work, and answering admirably all the pur
poses usually required of the more ponderous
description of soils, and are almost equally
productive, whether cultivated in grain, hay,
or roots. W. B. P.
Burlington Co., N. J., April 30, 1858.
Things for the Boys to do.
It is spring now, boys, and the time is com
ing when a good deal of work must be done.
Now some of you must take hold and work
like the full grown man all day. If this is
your lot, don't whimper nor complain. Be
brave, and cheerful, and stick to it. It may
seem hard now. But in the end, it will do
you no harm, and may do you some good.
But most of you will have much time on
your hands. Your work will not do as much
good, as some other things that you may do.
Can you guess what they are ? Now we know
you are good at guessing. But perhaps you
might guess forty times, and miss every time.
So we mention a few of these things.
You can put every tool you use back in its
place, after wiping it clean and dry.
You can shut every gate, and put up every
set of bars you pass through, unless you
know they are to be kept open.
You can do every errand you are sent on,
promptly, coming back and reporting to your
parents, or employer, as soon as possible.
You can do all the chores (little jobs) en
trusted to you, faithfully and well.
You can Orer to do any little piece of work
that some other person would do, if you did
not. Such a habit will make you very pop
ular at home and. abroad.
You can clean your shoes at the door, place
your hat and overcoat in their places, and be
a pattern of neatness in your own room.
You can be good-natured and polite to
your equals, and respectful to your superi
This is the first lesson. When you have
learned this pretty well, we will try to have
another ready, which will be worth as much
as this.—Ohio Farmer.
ROCK OR STONE TURNlP.—Editors COU7I
- Gentlemen-1 wish to tell your-numerous
readers of a turnip worth raising, to wit, the
Rock or Stone Turnip.
I raised from ten rods of ground, (one six
teenth of an acre,) ninety bushels, weighing
sixty pounds per bushels, which I think
worth as much to feed cattle, as potatoes.—
I have no doubt I can raise 1,500 bushels on
an acre of light, warm land, suitably enriched
as for corn. I sow the seed in a bed, as for
cabbage, and after my ground is well plowed
and harrowed, transplant in rows eighteen
inches apart, and the plants twelve inches ;
but I think eight inches - would be better.—
You will find but little trouble in keeping
the-weeds out till they cover the ground.—
Whole cost not over six cents per bushel—
worth from 37i to 50, for the table, and will
keep the year round. Sow the seed as soon
as the ground is fit in the_spang, and trans
plant when largo enough. The turnip -when

Ashes---Some ways to Use Them as
1. One excellent way, is to scatter them
thinly over the ground, and leave the dress
ing to soak in the soil. This is the best
mode on meadows that you do not wish to
2. They may be applied in the same way
to land which you arc going to plow for corn
3. Liuleached ashes may be applied to corn
after it is up, at the rate of a tablespoonful
to a hill, partly as a manure, and partly to
arrest the ravages of cut-worms.
4. It may be profitably used as a dressing
for strawberry-beds in the spring. It should
be applied dry, and spaded in. Strawberries
love an application of this sort.
5. They may, when concealed, be strewn
over crops when growing. Such as grapes,
or oats, or other grain. They should be scat
6. They may be scattered with the seed of
winter grain, and will often thus be of great
T. They form an excellinat dressing for
lands, to be used for fruit trees. They con
tain so much of what is needed for the
growth of trees, that a generous application
of ashes, plowed in deep, will be beneficial.
Trees already set out, may be helped by spa
ding, in ashes sparingly about their roots.
S. Applied to clay soil, they soften it.—
Used on sandy soil, they harden it. Scatter
ed on sour land, they correct its acidity.—
They are quite generally useful.-- Ohio Far
TEE Ct - r WORM.—Some twelve years ago,
we first printed, from the personal statement
of No. 1 farmer of Delaware county, the
beneficial results to his crop of corn from an
addition, at the usual time of " plastering,"
of twenty five per cent. of salt—that is to say,
to three pecks of plaster he added one peck of
salt—apply in the same proportion as is cus
tomary with the pure plaster—about a ta
blespoonful to a hill—taking care, however,
that the mixture does not come in contact
with the corn, or it may destroy it. The salt
is not only found to be a sure protection
adainst the cut worm, but greatly increases
the vigor of the plant.

rrIE NEW YORK STEAM SAW
MILL AND MACHINE COMPANY,
Lu'ITAL, TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND
This company has been organized with the above capital
for the purpose of supplying the demand for the
COMBINATION PORTABLE STEAM SAW-MILL,
and other improved machinery.
They have purchased the entire machinery business here
tofore carried on by J. M. Emerson & Co., also the Mont
gomery Works at Yonkers, on the Hudson, near this city,
and with the experience and facilities combined in its or
ganization are prepared to furnish machinery of all kinds
at more liberal rates, than has ever been offered at any
The Combination Saw-Mill was patented October, 1356,
and is now generally acknowledged to be the cheapest, and
most practical, and efficient lumber manufacturing ma
chine in the world. A number of them are in successful
operation in different sections of the country, Canada,
Cuba. and South America, and wherever their merits have
been tested they are being adopted by lumber manufactu
rers in preference to all other mills.
The following letter expresses the general opinion of
those who are using the Combination Mill:
Mans. ESIERSON & Co.—Gentlemen: I have tried the
saw-mill purchased of you, and will say that it performs
well, and more than meets my expectations. I am well
pleased with its performance. I set it up on a small stream
that afforded constant water about as thick as my little
Enger, which was much more than sufficient to supply the
boiler. We are able to cut 3,000 feet of beautiful lumber
in 12 hours, with something less than one cord of wood.—
It is the very thing we have so much needed in our county
for a long time. With a little trouble and expense, we are
able to move it from five to ten miles per day, and set it up
in the heart of the timber, which saves the great burden
of hauling the logs a long distance to the mill.
Yours respectfully, JEZSE KERR, Jr.,
The company has purchased Lund's Patent Feed Ar
rangement, which is illustrated and described in the Scien
tific American for October 24. This adds greatly to the
efficiency of the mill.
TIM COMBINATION MILL,
with all the rocont improvements, and steam power of 15
horses, is capable of sawing from 3,000 to 4,000 feet in 12
hours, and is sold for $1,650.
TIIE NEW YORK CIRCULAR SAW-MILL
Is manufactured only by this company. It: is of superior
contraction, and sold for 25 per cent. less than other mills
of no greater capacity. A mill with 36 to 54-inch saw can
be sold for $450 to $5OO, and with a 20-horse engine and
boiler is sold for $2.200.
Stearn Engines and Boilers; Engines of from 1 to 100
horse power; Locomotive, Tabular. Flue and Cylinder
Boilers furnished at greatly reduced prices from former
Drawings, with plans and specifications for buildings
and machinery, furnished gratis to our customers.
Competent mechanics are sent out to put up and set in
operation our machinery, when required.

TESTIMONIALS FROM PROFESSORS AND OPINIONS
"The Horace Waters' Pianos are known as among the
very best. We ore enabled to speak of these instruments
with some degree of aonfidence, from personal knowledge
of their excellent tone and durable quality."—N.
Having inspected a logo number of the Horace Waters'
Pianos we can speak of their merits, from personal knowl
edge, as being of the very best quality."—Christain
Nothing at the State Fair displayed greater excellence
in any department than the Piano-Forte manufactured by
Horace Waters, of this city.—Churclunan.
The following is taken from the " Christian Inquirer":
"The finest among the many pianos at the Crystal Palace
are those placed there by Horace Waters, whose instru
ments are always popular.
The following we take from the "Christian Advocate"
(Memphis, Tenn.:) "The Horace Waters, Pianos are built
of the hest and most thoroughly seasoned material. From
all we can learn of this establishment—said to be the lar
gest in the United States—we have no doubt that buyers
can do as well, perhaps better, at this than at any other
house in the Union.v
"Mr. Waters has been long established and is favorably
known. We speak from experience when we assure our
readers that his prices arc below those usually charged
for articles in his line."—Jacksonian, N. J.
"Your instruments are a sensible improvement upon
American Pionos, and an honor to the skilful manufacturer.
There is no doubt but they will be appreciated by the pub
lic and all admirers of true merit.—Oscar Coniettant.
The treble is clear, pure, powerful, and very melodious,
the base is deep, rolling, and sonorous: the middlepart, is
rich, and sympathetic, and possessing the power of sing
ing, i. e. of uniting the sound of each tone, in a degree but
rarely achieved."—Henry C. Watson.
For power of tone, depthof brass, and brilliancy of tre
ble, together with accuracy of touch, they are equal to any
make lam acquainted with, and I cordially recommend
them to those wishing to purchase.—V. C. Taylor.
"Our friends will find at Mr. Waters' store the very
best asortment of music and of pianos to be found in the
United States, and we urge our southern and western
friends to give him a call whenever they go to New York,"
" We consider them worthy of special attention, from the
resonant and exceedingly musical tone which Mr. Waters
has succeeded in attaining."—N. Metsical Wiwict and
"There is one which, fur beauty of finish and richness
and brilliancy of tone, equals, if it does not excel, any
thing of the kind we have even seen. It is from the estab
lishment of Horace Waters. Being constructed of the best
and most thoroughly seasoned material, and upon im
proved principles, it is capable of resisting the action of
the climate, and of standing a long time in tune.—Saran
molt Republican. Savannah, Ga."
Waters' pianos and melodeons challenge comparison
with the finest made anywhere in the country."—Home
C. L. Simko, editor of the Kenoeha "Tribune and Tele
graph" says, " The piano was received in good order, and
is pronounced an excellent instrument by good judges,
the tone of it is particularly commended, as is indetsd its
external workmanship and finish, compared with its cost."
Speaking of the llorace Waters' Pianos and Melodeons
at the Crystal Palace the 1' New York Disptach" says :
" A number of these pianos and pedal bass organ melode
ons, from their great power, and fullness and richness of
tone, attract the very general attention and commenda

artists as not only a sensible but important improvement
The "New York Express" says: "The Itorace Waters'
Pianos are pronounced by musical amateurs as a decidedly
superior article in all tho requisites of this instrument,
and`it is fast superseding those of other manufacturers."
The "New York Evening Post" says: "The Horace

those of other makers, as well as second-hand ones, capi
tally adapted to limited means."

The "Sunny South" reaches us with the following:—
"This gentleman is one of the most extensive music-deal
ers in the Union. His pianos and melodeons have ob
tained great celebrity for their excellent tone and durable
Says the "Valley City Advocate:" "We have taken a
look at a piano which has just arrived from the celebrated
establishment of Horace Waters, and must say that for
tone and beauty of finish, it surpasses any we over saw
for the price."
Horace Waters, Piano-Fortes are of full, rich, and even
tone, and powerful.—New York Musical Review.
"They are fully equal to any ofi,:the kind I have seen in
the United States, and far superior to those of a similar
make I saw in England."—Geo. Wizshbourne Morgan.
"I take great pleasure in announcing them instruments
of a superior quality, both in tone and touch."—August
We don't know that we ever saw better pianos—pianos
_better made, of finer tone and of greater power—than we
met with yesterday at the fair in the Crystal Palace. The
finest among them are those placed there by Horace Wa
ters, whose pianos are always popular."—Tinzcs and Mes
"The Ilorace Waters' Pianos now on exhibition at the
Fair, have attracted a surprising degree of attention;
they are unrivalled by any other instrument, in perfect
quality of tone and pozver."—Courier.
, •The Illorace Waters' Pianos are among the most cele
brated and improved makes of the day. For power, bril
liancy and richness of tone, elasticity of touch, and
beauty of finish, they will not suffer in comparison with
those of any other manufacturer."—Thomas Baker.
The "State Register" contains the following: "For
beauty of finish, sweetness and brilliancy of tone, they
undoubtedly surpass anything of the kind ever brought
before the public. They equal in tone the grand piano;
and being constructed of the best and most thoroughly
seasoned material, they are capable of resisting the action
of any climate."
Says the "Evening Mirror": They (the 'Horace Waters'
Pianos) are very superior instruments and the maker
may confidently challenge comparison with any other
manufacturer in the country, as regards their outward
elegance, and quality of tone and power."
va,.P. DRUNKER is agent for the sale of these Pianos,
for Huntingdon county. He will attend to the unpacking
and putting up of them, and keeping them in tune, for
a year, free of charge. Re will also see that every pur
chaser is satisfied. They will be sold as low as any other
Pianos in the United States. Sept. 9, 1857.

GREATEST DISCOVERY OF THE
IMPORTANT TO TOBACCO CHEWERS!!
DR. GUSTAV LIN NARD'S
Taste Restorative Troches, tlle Great Substitute
It is a well known and incontrovertable fact that the use
of Tobacco is the promoting cause of many of the most se
vere MENTAL AND PHYSICAL DISORDERS to which the
race of man is subject, as careful analysis and long and
painful experience have clearly proven that it contains
certain narcotic and poisonous properties most dangerous
in their effects, which by entering into the blood derange
the functions and operations of the Heart, causing many
to suppose that organ to be seriously deceased.
TOBACCO affects also the entire nervous system, mani
festing itself—as all who have used the noxious weed will
bear testimony—in Lassitude, Nervous Irritability, Water
Brash, Dyspepsia, and many other disorders of a similar
TIIE TASTE RESTORATIVE TROCHES are designed to
counteract these baneful influences, and have proved com
pletely successful in a multitude of cases, and wherever
used. Doing harmless in themselves they exert a benefi
cial effect upon the entire system, restoring the taste which
has become vitiated or destroyed by great indulgence, com
pletely removing the irritation and accompanying tickling
sensation of the Throat—which are always consequent
upon abstaining from the use of Tobacco, and by giving a
healthy tone to Stomach, invigorate the whole system.
Persons who are irretrievably undermining their con
stitutions and shortening their lives, should use these
Troches immediately and throw off the injurious and un
pleasant habit of Tobacco Chewing.
These Troches or Lozenges aro put up in a convenient
and portable form at the low price of 50 Cents per Box.—
A liberal discount to the Trade.
Prepared solely by the undersigned to whom all orders
should be addressed.
