Ely (lobe. HUNTINGDON, PA. [From the N. Y. Tribune.] WHAT I KNOW OF FARMING. BY HORACE GREELEY DRAINING-MY OWN My farm is in the township of New castle, Westchester county, New York, 35 miles from our City Hall, and a lit tle eastward of the hamlet known as Chappaqua, called into existence by a station on the Harlem Railroad. It embraces the south-easterly half of the marsh which the railroad hero traver ses from south to north—my part measariog dome fifteen acres, with five acres moro; Of slightly elevated dry lndlietween it and the foot of the rather rugged bill which rises thence on the cast and on the south, and of which•l-now- own some - fifty acres ly log wholly eastward of my low laud, amid in good part covered with forests. Of this, I.hought more than half in 1853, and the residue in bits from time to time - ai3 I:could - afford it. , iThe ave rage cost was between $l3O and $l4O pbrOrpi; One Itni4ll and poor old cot thge being the only building I found on the - tract,'whicli - consisted of the ragged edges of two adjacent farms between the Western portions of which mine :is noir :interpoised, while they still adjoin each other beyond the north,and•south"road half a mile from the-railroad on which their buildings are located and which forms my east ern,,boundary. stony, gravelly uplandmainly slopes to the west; but two acres on my east line incline tow ard the road which bounds me in that "direction, While two more on my south east corner descend to the little brook which, entering at that corner, keeps 'irregularly near my south lino, until it emerges, swelled by a smaller runnel that enters my lowland from the north 'and 'traverses it to meet and pass off with the larger brooklet aforesaid. I ,have done some draining, to no great purpose, on the more level portions of my upland, but my lowland - has chal longed my best efforts in this line, and ,I , ahall here explain them for the en couragement and possible guidance of novices - In-‘draining. Let me speak first -of marsh or bog consisted, when I first grappled with it, of some thirty acres, wheri3of I then ,ow r . 3 / 4 ed lets than athird„ _To drain it tilffidvantage, one - Person should own it alt or the different owners should co-operate; :butlhad to go it alone, with no other aid than . a freely accor ded privilege of straightening as well as tie:epening the brook which wound its way.. through the dryer meadow just below me, ,forming here the,boun dark: &Iwo adjacent farms. ' I spent one hundred dollars on this job, which is still imperfect; but the first decided fall in the stream occurs nearly a mile •below'me; and you tire easily of doing at your own, cost, work which benefits Antral ethers as much as yourself.— illy drainage will never be perfect till this,brdok,.with that far larger ono in ishiCh' it :is °merged . sixty -rods below me, shall have been sunk three or four feet at a 'further expense of - at least five hunlited 'dollars. : This bog or marsh, when I first t9u,ght it, was mainly dedicated to the in4es'mf-frogs, muskrats -and snapping turtles. A few small water elms and eat:Maples grow upon it, with swamp alder.partly fringing the western base of tho'hill east of it, whore the rocks iihich'had,through thousandi of years, relied from -the hill, thickly covered the surface, with springs bubbling up around and amonethem. Decaying iitinnps and, imbedded 'fragments-of trees Argued that, timber formerly cov ered: tbia marsh as,woll'its the encir cling -hills. A tall, dense growth of blackberry briars . thoroughwort, and all-panoer of - swamp weeds and gras l i - covered tho,:center . of the swamp each Summer; but my original portion Of it; being too wet for these, was main-' ly addicted to hassocks or tussocks of wiry,. worthless grass: their matted 'roots :rising ;in hard bunches a few in• gibes above •the :soft, bare, encircling mud: The - hog ranged 'in depth from a fewinahes to five or six feet, and was composed of black, peaty, vegetable mold, diflitaified'by,occasionid streaks of clay or sond,call resting on a sub -8414511P. c!f:kiarfi i -goarso gravel, out of Whi'cli•twP - Pi three springs bubbled up, in addition - to the half a dozen which poured in from the east, and a tiny. rivulet which (except in a very dry, hot time) added the attribute of three or four more which sprung from the base of a higher shelf of the hill boar the middle of what is now my farm. • Add to those that the brook which brawled and foamed down my hill-side near my south line as afore said, had brought along an immensity of pebbles and gravel of which it had mainly formed my five acres of drier lowland, had thus built up a petty swain, whereon it had the bad habit of filling up one channel, and then cutting another, more Aevious and ec centric, if possible than any of its pre• decessors—and you - have some idea of the obstacles I encountered and resol ved to overcome. One of my first substantial improvements was the cut ting of a straight channel for this cur rent and, by walling it with large stones, compelling the brook to respect necessary limitations. It was not my fault that some of those stones wore set nearly upright, so as to veneer the brook rather than thoroughly con strain it; hence some of . the stones, undermined by strong currents, were pitched forward into the brooks by high Spring freshets, so as to require resetting more carefully. This was a mistake, but not ono of 2fy Blunders.—Theso, the natural result of inexperience and haste, were very grave. Not only had I had no real experience in draining when I be gan, but I could hire no foreman who knew much more of it than I did. I should havehegun by securing an ample and sure fall where the water left my laud, and next cut down the brooklet or open ditchen into which I intended to drain to the lowest practicable point—so low, at least that no drain running into it should ever be troub led with back water. Nothing can be more useless than a drain in which water stagnates, choking it with mud. Then I should have bought hundreds of Hemlock or other cheap boards, slit them to 11, width of four or five inches, and, having opened the needed drains, laid these in the bottom and the tile thereupon, taking care to break joint by covering the meeting ends of two boards with the middle of a tile. Laying the tile in the soft mud of a bog, with nothing beneath to prevent their sinking, is simply throwing away labor and money. 1 cannot wonder that tile draining seems to many a humbug, seeing that so many tile are lain so that they never do any good flaying, by successive purchases,be come ownerof fully half of this swamp, and by repeated blunders discovered that making stone drains in a bog, while it is a capita! mode of getting rid of the stone, is no way at all to make . drains, I closed my series of ex periments two years since by - careful ly relaying my generally ,useless tile on good strips of board, sinking them just as deep as I• could persuade the water to run off freely, and instead of allowing them to discharge into a brooklet or open ditch, connecting each with a covered main of four to six inch tile; these mains discharging into the running brook which drains all my farm and three or four of those 'above it just where it runs swiftly off from my land. If a thaw or heavy rain swells the brook (as it sometimes will) so that it rises above our outlet aforesaid, the strong current formed by the concentration of the clear con- tents of so many drains will not'allow the muddy water of the brdok to back inteit so many as three feet atmoat; and any mud or sediment that may be deposited there will be swept out clean whenever the brook shall have fallen to the drainage level. For this and similar excellent devices, I am in debted to capital engineering and thorough execution of Messrs. Chick ering & Gall, whose work on my-place has' seldom required mending, and never called for reconstruction. Success.—l judge that there arc not many tracts more difficult to drain than mine was, considering all the circumstances, except those that are frequently flowed by tides or the wa ters of, some lake- or river. ;liad I owried.the - entire'swarnp, or bad there been a fall in the brook just below me, had I liiid. - „tiny prior experience in draining, - Or had others equrilly inter. ested co-operated in the good work, my task would have been —compara tively light. As it was, I made mis takes which increased the 'cost and postponed the success of my efforts; but, this is , tit length complete; .I had seven acres of Indian Corn, one of corn Fodder, two.of Oats, and seven or eight acres of grass on my lowland in 1869; and though the Spring months were quite rainy, and the lat ter part of Summer rather dry, my crops• Were all good. I did not do better in Westchester County; and I shall be quite content, with as good hereafter. Of my seven hundred bus. of corn,(ears) I judge:that two-thirds would be accounted fit for seed any where; my grass was cut twice, and yielded one large crop and another heavier than the average first crop throughout' our State. My drainage will require some care henceforth, but the fifteen acres I have reclaimed from utter uselessness and obstruction are decidedly the best part of my ESE • • IA HUNTINGDON LIVERY STAntb !filo undersigned, having purchased the Livery Stable recently owned by Mr. Simon Weston, ate now pre- Pared to accommodate the public with Horses and Carri ages on reasonable terms.
