Classification of Soils ,
When farmers are conversing with each
other with regard to soils, or discussing
questions relating to them in their clubs,
there seems to be no well-uuderstood, com
mon standard among them, whereby each
may comprehend at once the kind of soil
Six divisions have been adopted by those
who have investigated the matter. These
are rocky soil, stony soil, gravelly soil,
sandy soil, loam and clay soil. When lands
are so rocky as to be unfit for cultivation,
they scarcely come under the term of soil;
although they often produce heavy crops
of wood and timber. But they sometimes
materially benefit the crops of the neigh
borhood by the influence produced from
their shade, moisture, and protection from
Their gradual decomposition furnishes a
certain portion of lime, potash and other
fertilizing materials, which are washed
down, and greatly contribute to the sup
port of vegetation which is within their
reach. The mosses which 'rest upon aese
rocks, and cling to their sides, may appear
to the beholder as worthless vegetable life.
But it is not so. They are living, active
organisms, penetrating every fissure of the
TatTilidieuperceptibly corroding the solid
structures, and preparing them for future
usefulness in soils, or composing soils them
There are some other soils peculiar in
themselves, and have what are denominated
peat or vegetable soils, or the prairie soils,
which have been anually 'burned over for
ages and are highly charged with ashes
and alkaline salts.
Some simple distinction ought to be as
sumed for reference, and in order to gain
these, Professor Johnson has presented a
classification of soils, which is based prin
cipally upon these chemical constituents.
1. Pare Clay, consisting of about sixty
parts of silicia, that is, flint and forty parts
of alumni—which is a common ingredient
of clay—and oxide of iron. When this
earth is passed through water, no silicious
sand will settle at the bottom, and it rarely
forms any extent of soil.
2. Strongest Clay, the stickey clay, con
sists of pure clay mixed with five to fifteen
parts of a silicious sand—that is, flinty
3. Clay loam differs from a clay soil in
allowing from fifteen to thirty parts of fine
sand to be separated from it in washing.—
By this larger admixture of sand, the clay
ey parts are mechanically separated, and
the soil becomes of a more free and friable
4. A loamy soil, upon washing, will
leave from thirty to sixty parts of sand on
the bottoni of the vessel in which it is
5. A Sandy loam will leave from sixty
to ninety parts of sand.
6. A Sandy soil, or light sand as it is
called, would have less than ten parts of
- Clify. Such a soil, if worthy of the name,
would scarcely produce any compensating
This classification may easily be made
by means of simply washing. The soil
should first be dried, and then after boil
ing in water should be throughly stirred
in some convenient vessel. The sand will
settle first, and when it is at the bottom
the liquid alone, hold the fine clay &c., in
suspension, may be poured off: when this
has been done a few times, nothing will
remain at the bottom of the vessel besides
nearly pure sand ; this may be dried and
weighed and the quantity will indicate to
which class of the above the soil belongs.
But the above classification has referred
only to the clay and sand, while lime is an
important constituent of soils, and of which
they are seldom entirely destitute.
7. Marty soils, in which the proportion
of lime is more than five parts, but does
not exceed twenty parts of the whole
weight of dry soil. The marl is a sandy
loam or clay marl, according as the pro
portion of clay it contains would place it
under the one or the other denomination.
8. Calcareous, or limy or chalky soils, in
which the lire exceeding twenty parts in
one hundred, becomes the distinguished
constituent. There are also calcareous
clays or loams or sands, accoding to the
proportions of clay or sand which are pre
sent in them.
Then vegetable matter is sometimes the
characteristic of a soil, which gives rise to
a further civision of
9. Vegetable moulds, which are of vari
ous kinds, from five to ten per cent , to the
peaty soil, in which the organic matter
may amount to sixty or seventy. These
-soils arc also clayey, loamy or sandy, ac
cording to the predominant character of
the earthy admixtures.
The management of these soils would re
quire quite a diversity of practice, some
account of which may be referred to in an
other article.—X E. Farmer.
SAVING CABBAGES TILL SPRING.—We
know of no better way to preserve cabba
ges through the winter than that which we
have recommended for a number of years.
It is to plant or set them up in rows as
they arow—that is with the roots down—
till in with soil pretty freely, then make a
covering by planting two postswhere there
is a fence to rest ou, or four where there is
not, allowing pitch to carry off the
water; lay bean-poles opposite the way of
the pitch and cover with corn fodder or
straw or boards. In using through the
winter avoid as much as possible the sunny
aide and close up again. We have kept
our cabbages for more than a dozen years
this way in a perfect state through the
winter and into the spring and could even
up to the first of Nay if desirable.—Gcr
MINCED MEAT.—Four pounds beef,
boiled tender; one pound suet, two pounds
raisins, two pounds currants, one pound
citron, cut fine ; six pounds apples, oue
pound sugar, grate the rind of four lem
ons, and add the juice; cloves, cinna
mon and nutmeg to taste, cider to moisten
them. Some use brandy to flavor, but I
prefer it without as it is an article I use
only as medicine.

It is unnecessary for me to give a description of
it to those who are acquainted with it, and to thoss
who have not seen it, and who desire to purchase
a neat and complete residence I would say go and

upon a full lot of ground, 60 feet by 240, on East

the Steam Mill, which makes it one of the most
