Advantaged of Draining.
Much as has been written on this subject,
its importance is not yet fully appreciated.—
We do not assert that all lands absolutely re
quire draining, yet full one-half do, and near
ly all would be benefitted by it. Here and
there, a new farm, whose soil is full of the
partly decayed roots of trees, is drained more
or less by them. But when these roots shall
have perished, the soil will settle compactly
together and render artificial draining impor
tant. On some farms the subsoil is gravelly; ,
allowing the surface water to pass off easily;
and here, of course, no other drainage is ne
cessary. But more frequently, the subsoil is
a cold, stiff clay, preventing the escape of
water, and making draining essential to good
husbandry. Travel where we may, we see
thousands of acres, abounding in all the natu
ral elements of fertility, yet of little practical
value because surcharged with surplus water.
We see this, too, in portions of the country,
where the farmers are intelligent and indus
trious, and might be presumed to be awake
to whatever concerns their real interests.—
Is there not room for improvement here, in
American agriculture? Instead of urging
farmers to "plant one acre more," we should
first exhort them to drain one acre more.—
And this we would do, not as a mere echo of
Scotch and English notions, but as a principle
which live Yankees have worked out for
themselves, and proved to be of great impor
tance in American husbandry.
It is easy to ascertain what land needs
draining. In case of doubt, dig several holes
in different parts of the field or garden under
consideration, at a time when the surface soil
is moderately dry and fit to plow. If water
collects in the course of a day, and stands in
these pits, it may be taken for granted that
the land would be benefitted by draining.
It is a weighty argument for draining, that
it relieves the ground of surplus water early
in the spring, and so enables the work of the
farmer and gardener to commence earlier
than it otherwise could. It also makes that
work easier and pleasanter. When the ground
is undrained, it cannot become dry except by
evaporation, or by the oozing away of the
water, particle by particle, through a long
reach of stiff soil into some natural outlet.—
Meanwhile, the farmer must sit with folded
hands in comparative idleness, knowing that
by the time his land bad become dry, his work
will accumulate and press upon him with a
burden he can hardly bear. It would not be
strange if some of that work should be left
undone, or be slighted. Let but suitable
drains be cut through that land, and the
melting snows and drenching rains would
speedily find their way in these channels and
leave the ground dry and warm, and ready
for tillage several weeks earlier than fields
not so treated. It would tetuLto relieve farm
life of a great objection to it, in many minds,
viz: that it imposes such hurryiiig and ex
hausting labors at particular seasons, and
especially in spring. It would enable the
farmer to get certain crops into the ground
earlier, and so make sure of a vigorous growth
before the drouths of mid-summer, and of
maturity before the frosts of autumn. The
farmer at the extreme north, who sometimes
repines at the shortness of • the growing sea
son, and the coldness of his soil, would thus
practically gain almost a degree of south
latitude without the necessity of selling his
farm and moving his household goods.
Draining is beneficial to the farmer and
gardener, also, in that it relieves the ground
of surplus water during the cold season, from
November to April. Every farmer knows
that his wheat and grass are injured by stand
ing in water in the spring of the year. The
freezing and thawing of water about the
roots of these crops, tend to heave them out
of the ground, and when the winter is over,
the soil which has lain charged with water is
left in a cold, sour state, which the balmiest
summer succeeding cannot fully restore to a
warm and healthy condition. The orchardist
on such land finds his young trees either
killed outright or badly stunted and moss
grown. His peaches, grapes, and other choice
fruits, if they live, do nothing more. But
when the ground is well drained, wheat passes
through the winter safely—unless too much
exposed to the winds—and grass lands retain
their smooth surface, free from sorrel and
mosses, and fruit and ornamental trees and
vines, otherwise tender, come out in spring
Draining renders the ground more porous
at all seasons of the year, and enables the
roots of trees and plants to descend deeper
into the earth, and so to find more nourish
ment. In lands undrained, only a few inches
of the top soil are light and dry. The sub
soil being habitually wet, the particles ad
here firmly together, like tough mortar, ren
dering it . almost impossible for the roots to
penetrate them. And if they could do so, of
what benefit would it be ? They would find
not only few of the elements of growth, but
also many elements noxious to vegetable life.
In dry weather, too, soils of this description
bake, and crack open in large fissures, allow
ing the heat to penetrate among the roots of
trees and plants. On the other hand, in pro
perly drained ground, the water leaches
through the soil and subsoil into the drains,
leaving behind it a thousand minute pores or
channels ,throughout its whole extent, and
making it comparatively friable, light and
warm. The cold stagnant water having been
abstracted from the bottom soil, and that soil
rendered - porous by the process, roots of trees
and plants push into it at once, and find there
a wide field for forage. It is an annexation
of new territory, over which they rejoice to
spread themselves. Defiance, now, to the
dog-star ! The roots are not confined to a
few inches of surface-soil: their mouths are
down near to the nether springs. The drains
carried off the excess of water in the wet
season, but by rendering the subsoil porous,
the moisture more easily rises again to the
surface when it is wanted, in the dry season.
Tkis is one of the most beautiful and impor
tant results of draining. Contrary to the
fears of some, draining is beneficial to land
in time of drouth, hardly less than in the wet
season. Paradoxical as it may at first seem,
the best way to prevent land from becoming
too dry, is to drain it ! This benefit will un
doubtedly be the more apparent, if the drain
ing is accompanied with thorough subsoiling
or trencLinr, yet it will be obvious without it.
Draining also facilitates the work of' en
riching land. Manure applied to the surface,
instead of being washed off by the rains and
lost, is carried downward, and its juices in
corporated with the soil. Yet it is not carried
beyond the reach of the plants—it seldom, if
ever, descends. three feet—nor is it borne
away through the drains. The increased
benefit which land so treated derives from
the atmosphere and from.the rains and dews,
is worthy of much consideration. The soil
is in the best state for imbibing and retain
ing the fertilizing gases with which the air
may at any time be charged.
The benefit to the health of the inhabitants,
arising from the draining of land, is a matter
of great importance. But upon this, as well
as some other points, we cannot now dwell.

gardening, was : trench, trench, TRENCH ! A

Best Lemon Pie
I send a recipe for the best Lemon Pie it
ever was my good fortune to taste.
The juice and grated rind of one lemon,
one cup of water, one table spoonful of corn
starch, one cup of sugar, one egg and a piece
of butter the ,sze of a small egg for one pie.
Boil the water, wet the corn starch with a
little cold water and stir it in ; when it boils
up, pour it on the sugar and butter ; after it
cools, add the egg and lemon ; bake with an
under and upper crust.
RECIPE FOR MAKING SOFT GINGERBREAD.-

"it isle so goot dat it couldn't be gooter:"
One cup sugar; one cup molasses ; one cup

one nutmeg ; three eggs ; and flour enough
to make it thick as pound cake.
rpE LIVER INVIGORATOR !-
PREPARED BY DR. SANFORD.—Compounded en
tirely froin.OUJIS is one of the best purgative and Liver
medicines now before the public, that acts as a Cathartic,
easier, milder,and more effectual than any other medicine
known. It is not only a Cathartic but a Liver remedy,
acting first on the Liver to•eject its morbid matter, then
on the bowels and stomach to carry off that matter; thus
accomplishing two purposes effectually, without any of the
painful feeling experienced in the openttious of most
Cathartics. It strengthens the system at the same time
that it purges it; and when taken daily in moderate doses
will strengthen and build it up with unusual rapidity.
The Liver is one of the principal regulators of the
human body; and when it • performs its functions well,
the powers of the system be are fully developed. The
STOMACHis almost entirely dependent on the healthy
action of the LIVER for the (...) proper performance of its
functions; when the sto- J mach is at fault, the bowels
are at fault, and the whole system suffers in conse
quence of one organ—the Liver having ceased to do
its duty. For the diseases! of that organ, one of the
proprietors has made it his study, in a practice of more
than twenty years, to find e •-• some remedy wherewith to

T HE NEW YORK STEAM SAW
MILL AND MACHINE COMPANY,
ITAL, TWO lITINDRED AND .FLPTY 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 Sz 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, 1856,
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 aro 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:
MEsses. EMERSON & 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
finger, 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, JESSE KERR, Jr.,
- Louisville, Tennessee.
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.
TILE COMBINATION MILL,
with all the recent 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.
THE NEW YORK CIRCULAR SAW-MILL
Is manufactured only by this company. It: is of superior
coutruction, 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.
Steam Engines and Boilers; Engines of from 1 to 100
horse power; Locomotive, Tabular, Flue and Cylinder

Nothing at the State Fair displayed greater excellence
in any department than the Piano-Forte manufactured by
Horace Waters, of this city.—Churcleman.
The following is taken from the " Christian Inquirer":
"The finest among the many pianos at the Crystal Palace

The following we take from the "Christian Advocate"
(Memphis, Tenn.:) "The Horace Waters, Pianos are built
of the best 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."
"Mr. Waters has been long established and is favorably
known. We speak from experience when we assure our
readers that his prices are below those usually charged
for articles in his line."—Jacksonian, 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 Con:Want.
The treble is clear, pure, powerful, and very melodious,

"There is one which, for 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

proved principles, it is capable of resisting the action of
the climate, and of standing a long time in tune.—Sarun

Waters' pianos and melodeons challenge comparison
with the finest made anywhere in the country. - -Lfome
C. L. Sholes, editor of the Kenocha "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 indeed its
external workmanship and finish, compared with its cost."
Speaking of the llorace Waters' Pianos and Melodeons
at the Crystal Palace the " 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
tion of visitors. Waters' "New Scale" is recognized by
artists as not only a sensible but important improvement
The " York Express" says : " The Horace Waters'
Pianos are pronounced by musical amateurs as a decidedly
superior article in all the requisites of this instrument,
and it is fast superseding those of other manufacturers."
The "New York Evening Post" says: "The Horace
Waters' Pianos are excellent as well as cheap; but he has
those of other makers, as well as second-hand ones, capi

" 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 llorace Waters, and must say that tbr
tone and beauty of finish, it surpasses any we ever saw
for the price."
Horace Waters' Piano-Tortes are of full, rich, and even
tone, and powerful.—Neto Tin* Musical Review.
" They are fully equal to any of the kind I have seen in
the United States, and far superior to those of a similar
make I saw in England."—Geo. Melbourne 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."—Times and Nes
"The Horace 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 power.' —Courier.
" The Horace Waters' Pianos arc 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."—Thonbas Baer.
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'
Piahos) 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."

G REATEST DISCOVERY OF THE
imPORTANT TO TOBACCO CHEWERS! I
DR. GUSTAV LINNARD'S _
Taste Restorative Troches, the Great Substitute
It isn well known and iucontrovertable 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
THE TASTE RESTORATIVE TROCHES are designed to
counteract these baneful influences, and have proved com
pletely successful in a multitude of cases, and wherever
used. Being 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, corn
ple_ely 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 the 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 are put up in a convenient
and portable form at the low price of 50 Cents per 80x...-.
A liberal discount to the Trade.
Prepared solely by the undersigned to whom all orders
should be addressed.
