D. Jackson said that ashes and limo
alone would render a soil fertile. • He ,
had analyzed a soil, a blowing Noand
which had been'. manured with iihes
,for 7 or 8' years, at the rate' of
200 bushels' per acre, and found there
was 3 per cent gain of organic:matter

sods are the . most :benefited by ashes
while heattr clay soils are but little.—
The firit eireets. of unbleached ashes
are the most powerful, but the effect in
succeeding . years, show that.bleached
ashes are as good. It shoUld be re"
membered that - the lime which is added
to'bleached ashen, more than repays the '
loss bf the alkali.'
Mr. Robinson said he had used ashes
and lime‘ mixed, two parts of the. first
to one of4he latter, as a manure for po
tatoes ;, half a pint to a hill. at the time
of plantiug, the soil light and' loamy.--
