Manufacture of Cheese.
The following is an extract from the st.te
rnent of Alonzo L. Fish, of Herkimer county,
who received the first premium of the New
York State Agricultural Society fur the best
cheese dairy, in 1844.
Calves' rennets only are used, after being
dried one year. There are less animal pru
pertiee in them than in new rennets, and will
not make cheese swell in warm weather; and,
on shrinking,' leave them (like honey comb)
full of holes, with a rank flavor.
Calves whose rennets are'designed for cheese.
making are not allowed to suck sick cows, or,
those giving bad milk, but are fed a plenty of
good milk from five to ten days old; twelve or
fifteen hours after sticking, when the gastric
juices are most abundant and pure, the rennet
is taken out-and stretched on a bow ; as much
fine salt is added as will adhere without drain
ing, and hung in good air to dry. Milking is
done in tin pails, and strained through a large
tin strainer into a tin vat, where it is not skim
med ner moved till the cheese is made. The
pails are set into a common sap bucket, which
being light, and smaller at bottom than top, a
little press on the pail will fasten the bucket to
it so that it carries with the pail without any
inconvenience. A light tap un the bucket will
drop it, and leave the pail clean and not bruis
ed. A tin vat, large er.ough to hold the milk,
is set within a larger wooden cut, with one
inch space between the sides and bottoms of the
two to admit water, which is cooled by ice and
heated by steam ; which water cools the milk,
to take out the animal heat, warms it to receive_
rennet, remains and heats whey, and scalds
curd. It is discharged by a cock, to pass off
into a tub, and scalds bran or meal for slop feed
when it is required. Scalded feed is required
daily when the cows are milked on hay feed.
A large reservoir is built of stone and cement,
to contain fifty hogsheads of rain-water from
buildings, to discharge by a cock into the above
described s,race, into a stream generator. or
to a tub, or any other place in the lower rooms
where it is desired. A pump affords water to'
this apparatus in cause of drought. Thus the
same water is made to perform three distinct
offices, by no more lahor than to turn three
cocks with the thumb and finger.
After the water in the reservoir is not wan
ted for cheese-making, a pipe conducts it into
the top of the ice -house, to freeze in solid mass
in winter, for cooling milk the next season.—
No skimmer, pail, or dipper is required about
this apparatus, only to milk in, as the cream
which rises over night is not separated, nor no
dipping of milk, whey, or water. The heat
ing is done daily by a handful of chips or Your
quarts of charcoal, and all shift of apparatus
can be mbde with one hand, while the other is
employed in the milk or curd. A young man
is hired at 811 per month, fur eight months,
td take the whole charge of nursing, feeding.
making. and taking care of milk and cheese
through the sumer, and does no other businees.
lie is required to keep a register, daily, of the
variation (if any) of heat, salt, quality and effect
of rennet, number of cows milked, quantity of
milk from which cheese is made, condition of
curd when put to press ; when cheese is put
on shelf, that it is weighed and numbered upon
the bandage. so that, when cured. the result of
certain variations may be known. An inch
pipe passes from the steam generator, and dis
charges steam into water under the tin vat; in
ten minutes the whole mass is warmed to nine
ty degrees, to receive rennet. -The cheese is
then turned off (which would otherwise be lost)
into a tub, which stands high enough to dis
charge into the cheese vat and scald it after the
cheese is made. lint water is drawn at any
time from the same to cleanse pails, cloth hoops,
izc. Calves' rennete only are usq, after be
ing one year dry, they being less apt to make
cheese swell in warm weather, and of bitter
flavor. A piece of rennet, to bring curd in
forty minutes. is pounded fine in an iron mor
tar, and soaked a short time in warm water,
mixed with a little annatio, drained, strained,
and put into the milk. When come, the curd
is cut in large pieces with a wood knife: thick
est in the,midd . le , to give it a t slight pressure
before there is much surface exposed to be
rinsed by whey; after standing ten minutes,
the pieces are cut smaller with the same knife.
• then broken up by putting the hands to the
bottom of the tub, bringing them through to
the top, with fingers spread, with a slow mo
tion, to give it all a slight pressure without
tearing fine, while tender. Heat is kept as
high as eighty-eight degrees while working.
steam let on ; the motion and pressure with
hands increased with increase of heat and
toughness of curd ; heat is kept up to continue
the action of the rennet, as it is most active
when warm ; heat raised to ninety-eight de
grees; the steam is then turned off; it is kept
at that heat thirty minutes. The heating is
stow done ; the water and whey are discharged.
One pound of fine salt to fifty of curd is added,
while warm, to shrink the curd and oreient
holes in the cheese. After getting cool, it is
pot to press ; the-pressure is from five to seven
tons. In six hours it is turned into clean cloth;
and again. in twelve hours more, is taken out
of the press and put upon the shelf. weighed.
bandaged, greased with oil or whey butter—
turned daily. No greater heat is ever used in
the operation than the natural heat of milk,
(ninety-eight degrees.).
On Saving Seeds
We lose immensely by not taking care, in
season, to save the best seeds for spring cols-
In the multitude of our cares we forget.

is always leading us into new .sehenies, and

SEED IVDEAT.—If we could ever spare the
time—and n hn cannot ?—we might easily se
lect the very-beet of seed from our own fields.
Experiments are not wanting in show, that
in must fields of wheat, there is a vast differ
ence between the productiveness anti the quali
ties of the different heads. Some will ripen
much earlier ban others, and these should
therefore never be sown in the same field; for
it is an important point to harvest the grain as
soon as it is ripe.
It is also ascertained that the straw of et main
kinds of wheat is much heavier than that of
other kinds ; that the straw of some will weigh
less titan the grain which it produces, while
the straw of other kinds will weigh twice as
much as the grain.
Very little attention has yet been bestowed.
in New England. on this subject. We 60W in
haste, and. we reap in haste, without spending
time to examine the different varieties in the
same field; and no doubt a dozen different
kinds of wheat and of rye are often sown to
In regard to
,potatoes, we have generally
been so careless that we are obliged very often
to procure new seed from those who have been
more careful. It is notorious that most people
use only the refuse potatoes for the seed of a
new crop ! Can tt, then, be a matter of sur
prise that our potatoes run out ? If we should
always save our poorest calves and pigs for
breeders, we should he obliged to send to Eu
rope for cows as often as we do to our neigh
bors for new kinds of potatoes.
In regard to Indian corn we have been more
cautious. This has ever been a favorite grain'
in this country, and more care has been taken
to save good seed. The consequence is. we
have now the very fine=t varieties of corn ;
tind we need only to be more careful to select
those grains for seed which are soonest ripe
in the field.
But - who ijoes into his wheat and his rye
tield; his barley. his oat, or his buckwheat
fields', and selects the best heads in order to se
cure a prolific or an early variety ' We hardly
hear of such an instance ; but all this must be
done before we arrive at perfection in farming.
Harvesting Corn
As to the best mode of harvesting, we have
some hesitation. If we had a field oflate corn,
and we were in fear of a frost, we should be
inclined to cut the whole stalk at bottom and
make shocks of the corn, to stand two or three
weeks before harvesting. Fifteen or twenty
hills may be put together "in one shock, and
onesliould be left standing to support the oth
ers winch are to be placed around it. One
band,lor birch withe, Will be sufficient for one
shock ; and, if. well put up, they will stand
two or three weeks without racking over.—
V hen we wish to cart them home, we throw
a whole shock at a time on the cart, and' keep
the stalks straight. In this way they are more
easily husked.
We are not sure that we save any labor in
adopting this mode of harvesting, but it is cer
tain the fodder is better when secured in this
way. If the stalks are cut above the ear, they
shOuld always be put in pikes, or shocks, as
some call them, and there suffered to stand as
long as two or three weeks : they become
sweeter, and are better relished be cattle.—
When we house them soon after cutting. they
retain an acid which is not agreeable to cattle,
even though we take the trouble to hang up
the bundles on poles and let the sir in the barn
draw through them so much as to prevent any
mould from gathering. We have had stalks
that were thus kept, and looked perfectly well
and bright, but the cattle would not eat them
so well as they would others that had' been
weather-beaten. r
When we have put stalks in the pike we are
apt to suffer them to st,,fid out too long. Three
weeks of pretty good weather will fit them to
be packed close on the scaffolds. They
should be opened and sunned on the day of
GATHERING POTATOES.—Young farmers of
ten dig their potatoes too soon. They should
be suffered to stand until fully ripe, if we wish
for the most nourishment they will afford. In
truth they are not wholesome for man or heast
when unripe ; and by putting them early in
the cellar, they are liable to heat and spoil in
the heap.
They should he hut little exposed to the air,
and no amount of dry loam mixed with theni
will prove injurious when housed at the pro
per season of the year.
We have known some very early farmers
obliged to overhaul their potatoes and throw
them out oldie cellar to prevent their spoiling.
So long as the vines are green the potatoes are
growing; and, though after the frost has taken
their tops we expect no great increase, we
think the potatoes often become more ripe and
mealy by lying in the ground until the vines
are dead.
ask, What shall we do with our cold and
wet grounds ! If we put no manure in the
bill we fear we shall get no crop." It is be
lieved that most farmers have some dry and
warm land. Let•the corn he planted on such
land. We are not so bound by a system of
rotation of crops as be obliged to try every
field with corn. Rotation to some extent is
useful. hut we have thousands of acres • excel
lent for grass, yet wholly unsuitable for corn.
Let these acres remain in grass. If they need
ploughing. sow them again, to grass in Septem
berc they need not he planted. .
Warm and dry grounds. if =inured, and the
manure thoroughly mixed with the soil, will
generally give us good crops of corn when they
are well attended to.
To FARMERS.--ThOge farmers who hesitate',
about their ability to take a newspaper, are re
quested to keep one lien more than usual. The
profits will p.iy all costs.

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 n single work, of no very formidable dimensions,
a sufficient outline 31 the world's whole history, and
similar outlines of the history of every nation, is so
obvious, judicious and appropriate as to require no
eulogium. Every person who cares at all for the
acquisition of useful knowledge must desire to poses
such a general knowledge of post events, not only in his
own country but in all countries, as shall enable him
to understand the perpetually recurring allusions that are
found in alinoA any course of general reading ; because
for want of such'undcrstanding 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. qualilied to awaken; arid so of
most other works belonging to the better class of what
is called light literature. Bnt the difficulty has been to
obtain this general knowledge without going through
many books, requiring u greater expenditure oh time and
money than most persons me able or willing to afford;
and to obviate such difficulty has been the purpoa of Mr,
Maunder. •
His plan has the merit of completeness, and is un
doubtedly the best, that could have been desired. ff.
gives first a general sketch of ancient and modern his
tory—a rapid arid comprehensive bird's-eye view, as it
were of the rise and progress of nations, the most int.
portant incidents of their career, and their relations to
each other; and after this lie takes up the nations
separately, furnishing a concise digest of all that is im
portant or desirable to know concerning each, iand thus
affording, a sort of key to the changes aid events' that
were tame briefly indicated, rather by their results than
thcri incidents, in the general sketch or outline. Thus
the salient points of history are brunalit within a •neul
ageable compass ; and un excellent foundation is last fo r
more thorough and extensive seedling in reference to
airy portion of the world or any epee!' of which a com
plete knowledge may be desired.
In the execution of this plan the author has been very
successful. lfi= minces of id.torical eveidts,tlidnigli brief,
are laid and nalisilaary ; aid Ile traces the coma...non
of direct and cause with singular acumen and generally
with most commendable freedldint front partiality or bias ;
thus supplying a very gond idea of the philosophy of
as sell as of tile facts which
In a word, the work will be loniad invaluable to the ge
neral reader, and a very useful help to the student.
