'Differences in Soils.
tPfant the Country Gentlemen.]
Soil is the earth wherein crops of every
kind are produced. The component parts
are argil, sand, water, and air. Argil is the
soft and unctious part of clay. Argil and
sand contains each, in nearly equal degrees,
the food of plants. There are different kinds
of soil, which may be divided into four
classes, namely; clay, sand, gravel, and what
is termed peat earth. There is, however an
other kind of soil called garden mold, but,
as it is mainly of artificial creation, it can
hardly be ranked with natural or original
soils. Loam, too, has been considered by
some as an original earth, but in reality it is
an artificial soil, produced by calcareous mat
ters, and vegetable manures. In process of
time the strongest clay may be converted into
a loam, by repeated applications of the sub
stance just mentioned. Sandy soils may also
be converted into light barns by the applica
tion of lime, chalk, marl and clay. And
even peat may be turned into a black, soft
loam, and rendered fertile and productive.
A clay soil differs from all other soils, and
is tough, wet and cold, and requires a good
deal of labor to render it fit for bearing arti
ficial crops of corn or grass. When once wet
ted it does not soon dry, and when thoroughly
dry it is not easily wetted. When it is plow
ed in a wet state it sticks to the plow like
mortar, and in a dry summer the clods can
scarcely be broken or scperated by the hea
Sandy soils may be managed with much
less trouble, and at an expense greatly infe
rior to what clay soils require ; but the crops
which are produced from them are generally
of smaller value. There are several varieties
of sandy soils, and in some artificial plants
will not thrive, unless a portion of good
earth is previously mixed. A true sandy
loam resting upon a sound subsoil, is called
the most valuable of all soils upon which all
kinds of grain may be raised with advantage,
and no soil is better adapted for turnips or
grass. Sandy soils thoroughly invigorated
with clay and marl, by judicious manage
ment, may be made to produce the largest
Gravelly soils freely imbibe moisture, and
part with it with great facility. From the
lightness of their texture, they are neither
expensive nor difficult in the means of culti
vation. They are usually barren, but by fre
quent applications of manure, and by frequent
returns of grass, they may be made fertile
and prolific. Deep plowing is essentially ne
cessary, so that the surface soil may be aug
mented, and greater room given to the growth
of the plants cultivated on them. If shallow
plowed, it is either burned up in a day or
two of drought, or equally injured by an ex
cessive fall of rain.
Peat earth, probably, is an artificial soil,
made and produced by certain substances
deposited upon the surface of the earth.—
Philosophers, however, disagree on this point.
By one it is called a primitive earth ; by an
other, a vegetable which grows and increases,
and continues to increase until it destroys all
other soils ; and by a third, that it consists
of ligneous and aquatic plants. It has been
said that one-fourth of the habitab'e globe is
peat,-or moss earth, and it is, perhaps, sur
prising that so little is known on a subject of
so much importance. The soil is friendly to
growth of oats, if previously it has been
summer-fallowed and enriched with manure.
A heavy crop of wheat, if the season is favor
able, may also be obtained.
As to the use to which soils may be most
advantageously applied, it is requisite that
clay soil be kept rich and full of manure,
- which qualifies it for carrying crops of wheat,
oats, beans, and clover. Usually, clay soils
require great industry and care, and a thoro'
knowledge in the dressing, to keep them in a
proper condition. No soil is so ungrateful as
this one if allowed to get into a sterile condi
tion; but if manure is profusely appropriated,
with an occasional summer-fallowing, it will
yield the heaviest and most abundant crops.
Upon light soils the case is somewhat dif
ferent. The facility with which they are cul
tivated, furnishes encouragement to keep
them under the plow. Grasses flourish the
best, and summer-fallow is rarely required.
The best method, perhaps, of procuring wheat
is to sow upon a clover stubble, which gives
an artificial solidity to the soil, and is thereby
rendered capable of sustaining this grain un
til it arrives at maturity.—w. R. I'.
The hog is now universally recognized as
ono of the most valuable animals on our farms.
Managed judiciously, he will be found to de
fray the cost of fattening, and not unfre
quently leave a handsome balance in the
hands of his keeper. This assertion may
perhaps appear incredible to some who shall
persist in adhering to old and should-be ob
solete notions of economy, especially those
who confine their hogs in close, prison-like
cotes, where they are as much restricted as
was the unfortunate Constance Beverly, shut
up in the walls of the castle, and not only
deprived of fresh air, but compelled to stand
and lie on a hard plank or gravel floor, with
barely sufficient litter to serve as an apology
for a " nest," during cold weather. With
those who manage in this manner, it is not
at all surprising that " pork making" is any
thing but a lucrative business. The method
which reason and experience teach, and which
every farmer should pursue, may be detailed
in a few words. It is this :—ln the imme
diate neighborhood of your hog-pen, have a
yard strongly and permanently enclosed, and
of sufficient extent to accommodate comfort
ably the number of swine you intend to keep.
Into this enclosure, convey as much muck,
chip manure, rotten wood, mould from the
roadside, leaves from the forests, straw and
sods, as will supply over the entire surface a.
solid and compact stratum of one foot in
depth. As the mass of material increases,
sprinkle over the whole a few handfulls of
corn, peas or buckwheat, and mix the same
with the manure by digging it in, leaving
but a small portion of it on the surface to in
duce the swine to root and turn the mass for
more; and when the first deposite has been
well manipulated, and the several ingredients
thoroughly mixed, add another stratum of
the same depth as the first. In this way you
may proceed till your yard is full; and you
will find that you have secured a quantity of
manure equal in value to the best stable
dung, and which, when applied to your soil
and crops, will produce prompt and perma
nent results. The quantity of manure which
may lie manufactured in this way, is almost
incredibly great. It will also be less expen
sive than any article of equal value that can
be had in any other way. On corn and wheat
lands, as well as on root crops, it possesses
great value.—Cor. Ger. Telegraph.
ABEAUTIFUL HEAD OF RICH
GLOSSY HAIR, COMPLETELY PRESERVED TO
TtLe GREATEST AGE.—And who that is gray would
not have it restored to former color; or bald, but would
have the growth restored, or troubled with dandruff and
itching but would have it removed, or troubled with scrof
ula, scald head, or other eruptions, but would be cured,
or with sick headache, (neuralgia) but would be cured.—
It will also remove all pimples from the face and skin:—
Prof. Wood's Hair Restorative will do all this : see circular
and the following:
PROP. 0. J. Woon—Dear -Sir: I have heard Mach said
of the wonderful effects of your Hair Restorative, but hav
ing been so often cheated by quackery and quack nos
trums, hair dyes, &c.. I was disposed to place your Resto
rative in the same category with the thousand and one
loudly trumpeted quack remedies, until I met you in
Lawrence county some months since, when you gave me
such assurance as induced thu trial of your Restorative in
my family—first by my good wife, whose hair had become
very thin and entirely white, and before exhausting one
of your large bottles, her hair was restored nearly to its
original brown color, and had thickened and become beau
tiful and glossy upon, and entirely over the head ; she
continues to use it, not simply because of its beautifying
effects upon the hair, but because of its healthful influence
upon the head and mind. Others of my family and friends
are using your Restorative, with the happiest effects;
therefore, my scepticism and doubts in reference to its
character and value arc entirely- removed; and I can and
do most cordially and confidently recommend its use by
all who would have their hair restored from white or gray
(by reason of sickness or age,) to original color and beauty.
and by all young persons who would have their hair
beautiful and glossy.
Very truly and gratefully yours,
LOIkION MAN N
FRIEND WOOD : It was a long time after I saw you at
Blissfield before I got the bottle of Restorative for which
you gave me an order upon your agent in Detroit, and
when I got it we concluded to try it on Mrs. Maines hair,
as the surest test of its power. It has done all that you
assured me it would do; and others of my family and
friends. having witnessed Its effects, are now using and
recommending its use to others as entitled to the highest
consideration you claim for it.
Again, very respectfully and truly, yours,
C.oll,vt.t, ILL., June 28, 1552.
I have used Prof. 0. J. Wood's Hair Restorative, and
have admired its wonderful effects. My hair was becom
ing, as I thought, preunatmely gray, but by the use of his
Restorative it has resumed its original color, and I have
no doubt, permanently so.

on the bowels and stomach to carry off that matter; thus
accomplishing two purposes effectually, without any of the
painful feeling experienced in the operations of most
Cathartics. It :trengthens 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.

" They arc 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. Washbourne Morgan,
"I take great pleasure in announcing them instruments
of a superior quality, both in tone and touch."—Augnst
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 Mes
"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 porter."—Cburier.
g• The Horace Waters' Pianos aro 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 mairufacturer."—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."
3p) P. BRUNNER 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. He 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, HU.

1 REATEST DISCOVERY OF THE
IMPORTANT TO TOBACCO CHEWERS!
Taste Restorative Troches, the 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 derango
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
TUE TASTE RESTORATIVE TP.OOIIES are designed tc,
counteract these baneful influences, and have proved con,
pletely successful in a multitude of cases, and wherever
used. Being harmless in themselves they mcert 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 the Stomach, invigorate the whole system.
Persons who are irretrievably undermining their con
stitutions and shorteping 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 60 Cents per Box:.—
A liberal discount to the Trade.
