soil from the roadside on to a meadow near by.
as one man could do in one day with a yoke of
The grass on the meadow was coarse,
and as we had an abundnare (d bay, we prefer
red not to Winn' thi6, but to here it green.
One man with oxen would cover nearly one
fourth of an acre in a day, as the long grass
helped to fill up the hollows betwieo the has-
socks. After this was evenly spread over the
grass, so as to cover it completely, a few toads j
of compost manure were spread on the top. and
then herds grass and red-top were sowed and
brushed in. It was near the middle of Septem
ber when it was sown. This summer the piece
gave a fine crop of English hay, and the clover
which was thrown, on in the spring now looks
finely for fall feeding. This land was thorough
ly drained, and the mud from the ditches help-.
ed' us to form the new surface.
Thus where there is soil near a meadow that
is made dry enough to be carted on, one man in
a week, with a si n gle yoke of oxen, will carry
on enough of soil to convert a whole acre of poor
meadow into English mowing.' Say the ex
pense is two dollars per day, or twelve dollars
per acre,—and such land needs not much ma
nure: it will nearly maintain itsell in grass, if
the rowen crop is turned under once in a few
years. This Lind, thus prepared, is worth more
than one hundred dollars per acre twenty miles
from Boston.
How much of such land we have within
thirty miles of Boston, which now bears 'a bur
den that will hardly pay for fencing ! It re
quires no expensive process to double the quan
tity, of hay now cut in Massachusetts.
low Lends.
Now is the time to improve upon lands that
lie too low to be tilled for grain. We know of
many farmers who are determined to make trial
of our mode of treating these lands. We beg of
all our brother farmers to make the trial of at
least one acre each. We know what will be the
result, for we have been practising on this plan
for years. We bring our low lands directly
into grass from gram- without going through
with the very unprofitable process of planting
such lands with corn or potatoes.
We have formerly said much on this subject,
but we think it must not yet be dropped ; and,
especially, as we have very many new patrons
who wish t , know our views in full on a sys
tem of seeding lands to grass which never has
been extensively practised in any part of the
Any farmer may try a single acre without fear
of ruin, for he may plough din a day, one more
day will serve to carry on his manure and seed
it to grass. If he dare not venture so far out of
the common course of hushaudary, let him try
one fourth of an acre, and finish up the business
in half a day.
Every farmer of fifty acres has some land too
low to be planted. Every one has lands which
lie cannot make so productive as he whould
wish. If we pursue the systern of planting
each field before we lay it to grass, the process
requires so much manure we cannot do lustire
to all our fields : some must lie nearly unpro
ductive, merely for want of due attention.
In general, the time to plough is when there
is sot - fiend:l , r on the ground that may be turned
in green. This is cheapest, the easlest. the
safest mode of enriching our worn-out
By adopting this pl.m we can easily make, all

In addition to this, the sod keeps the land
light !ouch longer than if it had been pulverized
by plaiting; consequently the land will no'

that are all worth rather more n he covered up
by the ColDeh than to be mowed or fed.
Many such fields as these may be easily
plotwhed. and now is our time. Our cattle are
strong., Rod Are kept new at small expense, com
pared with 'sprint , keeping on hay. We have
now more leisure for ploughing than at any sea
son when We have any thing that is green to be
covered up.
We will a mil remind our early patrons and in
form our more recent friends of our mode of
,eedinc on tl.e furrow at this season of the year.
We take a good plough that will lay the furrows
flat; we next roll them down hind, then carry
on a duzedloads or more of compost, or fine

We then sow herds-grass seed and red-top, and

as the seed is more likely to vegetate.
In winter we sow on some clover-seed. and

Preparation of seed \lint.
_ I have noticed several communications in
our velualile paper, al mot the preparation of
seed ; as they all differ somewhat from
the method I have adopted for the last three
years with much success, I beg leave to give
you inv mode of preparation.
I place a half e liesehead nearly full,of water
in my barn—add glanber salts until the water
ceases to dissolve them ; then take half a bushel
of wheat in a bale basket, sink it gradually,
stirrinz it with a paddle, untillevery particle of
filth is washed out, whir h'Avill float on the brine;
raise the basket suddenly to throw off the filth,
let the brine drain from it. place the wheat on
thereat and roll it in newly slacked lime, then
run it a side to let it dry a few hours before
seeding ; skim the floating filth from .the brine
and strain it throu gh a colander or IMO seive.—
lly this mode one hand can wash as fast as ten
ploughs can put it in.
In 1813, I' received 100 bushels of seed wheat
from the Western shore ; after seeding more
than one half. 1 discovered smut in it, and pre
pared 30 bushels as stated, =shine °Min quanti
ty of smut and other filth. In 1844 Ifound the
smut much increased in the wheat not prepared ;
in that prepared after a careful examination. I
found only one smuthead ! I then examined the
grain, and thought Iteould see a perceptible dif
ference in favour of the prepared wheat.
In the fall I seeded 75 bushels of that wheat,
washine imly 12 bushels. In 1815 1 examin
ed carefully the 12 bushels seeding, and found
no smut; I did not - examine that not prepared,
but found none in cleansing it for market. 1
again compared the grain, and observed if any
I thing, a great difference in favor of the prepar
ed wheat. I also discovered a like difference
in a white wheat that I was seeding.
Last 1,11 I prepared my entire crop s 162 bush
els, using
. 200 lbs. salts, and nearly six barrels
of slacked lime. '1 seeded two small parcels of
wheat, one from Pennsylvania, the other from
the southern part of this ititte, both containing a
large portion of smut ; if these prove clean, the
coming harvest. I shall consider this preparation
Roof against smut. As we have discovered an
antidote for this pest, I now no longer fear it
and will recommend to your subscribers in this,
part of the country, the change of their seed
wheat at least every two nr three years, for I am
fully satisfied from experiments I hive made, that
great gains will result from it.—Farmer's Cabi
MENTAL. AnarrsTios.--Wonderfully does
the mind of man suit itself to occasions, and
become accommodated to every circumstance.
It will rise superior to the strokes of fortune,
he happy in adversity, and serene in death.—
The consciousness Of rectitude will not onlyi
enable it to endure evil, but divest misfortune
of its every terror. Tenderness will yield to
an unbending firmness, and the eve in which
the tear of emotion has so often started will
disdain to weep. Ile who remarks the vicis
situdes of fortune, and how quickly prosperity
may be succeeded by a fall, can alone appre
ciate that property of the mind by which it be
comes elevated in triumph and . extracts from
adversity its hiddenjewel . N ot rightly allow
ing for the action of this property, we err often
in imputing misery to the cheerful, and felici
ty to the sad. Belisarius, blind, and the sport
of his enemies, might have yet been happier
than the emperor of the east. The principle
of adaptation to every thing which can be the
lot of man is a good genius which follows him
throughout his being. and its workings are
alike evident, whether you regard his mental or
physical relations to the phenomena which en
, compass him ; it is this which gives a zest to
his pleasures, a solace to his cares ; it gilds for
him the sunbeams of the morning, and when
night approaches. it smooths" for him the
raven down of darkness till it smiles."
PARSNIPS FOR Moos.—W hile carrots appear
to be excellent food for horses and cattle, and
very poor food for hogs. parships are found to
be very fine for hogs. A writer in the PRAl
rue FARMER. says, that parsnips are preferred
by hogs to all other roots. make excellent pork,
and will fatten them in six weeks. A hog 22
months old, weighing when alive 750 pounds,
was fattened entirely on-raw parsnips, and sour
milk " and liner rneat was never seen."

the demand has increased to cover 1000 boxes per day.
They arc intirely vegetable, and cause no pain in their
operations, being perfectly safe for young or old, and

for diseases of this climate,such as bilious diseases in all

Author of the " Treasury of Knowledge," " Biographi
cal Treasury," &c. including
The republication of this valuable work has been
undertaken partly on account of the high favor with
which it has been received in England, but chiefly in
consideration of its.intrinsic value, arising from the
felicitous adoption of the plan to a want that has been
long and generally felt and from the judgment and
fidelity manifested in its execution. The idea of giv
ing in c single work, of no very formidable dimensions,
a sufficient outline )f the world's" whole history, and
similar outlines of the history of every nation, is so
obvious, judicious and appropriate as to require no
culogium. Every person who cares at. all for the
acquisition of useful knowledge must desire to posess
such a general knowledge of past cventr, pot only in his
own country but in all countries, as shall enable him
to understand the perpetually recurring allusions that are
found in almost any course of general reading; because
for want of such understanding there is always a'serious
diminution both of pleasure and profit. even in the
perusal of such works as are designed chiefly for amuse
ment. For instance, most of Sir Walter Scott's novels
are founded upon history, and abound with reference to
historal events and personages, a want of some acquain
tance with which detracts seriously from the interest and
delight they are so well qualified to awaken; and so of
most other works belonging to the better class Of what
is called light literature. lint the difficulty has been to
obtain this general knowledge without going through
many books, requiring a greater expenditure of time and
money than most persons are able or willing to afford;
and to obviate such difficulty has been the purpos of Mr.
Itis plan has the merit of completeness, and is un
doubtedly the best that could have been desired. H.
gives first a general sketch of ancient and modern his
tory—a rapid and comprehensive bird's-eye view, as it
wercynt the rise and progress of nations, the most im
portant incidents of their career, and their relations to
each other; and after this he takes up the nations
separately, furnishing a concise digest of all that is im
portant or desirable to know concerning each, and thus
affording a sort of key to the changes and events that
were more briefly indicated, rather by their results than
theri incidents, in the general sketch or ontline. Thus
the salient points of history- are brought within a man
ageable compass ; and an excellent foundation is laid for
more thorough and extensive reading in reference to
any portion of the world or any epech of which a com
plete knowledge may be desired.
In the execution of this plan the author haii been very
surri, , f Li I. His notices of historical events,though brief.
are lucid and satisfactory; and he tracer the connection
of effect and cause with singular acumen and generally
with most commendable freedom from partiality or bias;
thus supplying a very• good idea of the philosophy of
history as well as of the facts which history records.—
In word, the work will be found invaluable to the ge
neral reader, and a very useful help to the student.
