The Plooghbcry's Som
On the rummtain's bmw,
And the air is cool and elm;
And who would dream
In the morning's beam,
When beautiful Spring is here!
I'd hasten with speed
To the glittering mead,
Where the mists are gathered now;
They will pees away,
As opens the day ;
As speeds the looming plough.
The lark is high
In the clear blue sky.
And his carols wild and free;
Ile has left his nest,
On the meadow's:bresst,
In the sunlight of heaven to be.
I cannot fly
To the clear blue sky,
Or carol so wild and free,
flat I'll whistle so clear,
That the skies shall hear,
As my plough glides o'er the lea,
And when the day
Shall have passed away.
- And the sun bath sunk in the sea,
VII take my team
From the strong plough beam,
And hasten away o'er the lea.
And then at night.
When my Heart is light,
And sleep stealeth over my brow,
TII lie and dream
Of my field and team,
And of guiding the farmer's plough.
Having had some experience in the culture
of the potato, I beg leave , to call your attention
to one point, a fact not well understood, I believe.
or at least if so. not generally practised, that is.
that planting the large or prominent eyes only,
vet will get a better yield and less small ones.
I have tried the experiment several; times, and
Rlway get the same result. I consider five
single eyes (as. they are called) the-proper seed
for a hill, and would put the rows three and a
half feet apart one way, and two-and a half the
other. When whole or cut potatoes are plant
ed, the large or prominent ones take the lead.
and will product good sized tubers if no other
put, out ; but if the season is favorable, (say
warm and not too wet, the small eyes will
.throw out stalks which much retard the growth
of the others, and only produce small ones, if
any at all. If the ' latter part of the seasons
should prove unfavorable, (ton dry.) the pro—
duct of the small stock would not be , worth
I prefer potatoes being cut for seed to plant
ing whole ones - ; a middling sized one cut in
three pieces being much better than to plant it
whole, as it spreads - the stalks in the hill, and
many kinds of potatoes containing a large num
ber eyes should be cut in several pieces. in or
der to have Di-equal a number of stalks in a hill
as possible. I know this is contrary to the'
theory and practice of many farmers ; but why
not as well plant a dozen kinds of mom, or a
whole ear in a bill, as to plant a potato that will
produce twenty or thirty stalks ? In one case,
I am answered that smou would get no corn ; in
the other, I answer, you gel very few, , potatoes
of any size compared to what you would if pro
perly divided, besides Wasting three times the
amount of seed necessary, if, as I said before, it
was properly divided.
For any planting I take the eyes singly s trom
the potatoes with a pointed knife for the pup
pose ;and consider that I am doubly and thri
bly paid fur the labdr ; first, in the saving of the
hulk of my potatoes required for seed, of which
not more than one-third is required as when
planted whole, and about half as many as when
cut ; and again in harvest, by getting more
bushels per acre, and those of a good, even size

Things to be Remembered.
Horses should never be put to severe work
on a full stomach. More horses are hurt by
hard driving after a full feed, than by a full feed
after hard driving. -
If the farmer wishes to have his pork barrel
and meal chest hold ont, let him look well to
his kitchen garden. Plenty of vegetables con
duce not more to health than to profit,
In laying in a stock of winter fodder for ani
mals, let it not be forgotten that a little too
much is just enough. Starving animals at any
time is miserable policy.
As 'you treat your land, so it will'treat yon.
Feed it with manure liberally, and it will, yield
you bread bountifully.
Avoid debts as you would the leprosy. If
you are ever tempted to
,purchase on milli, put
it off fut three days. You need time fur re
Never beg fruit, or any thing else you can
produce by the expenditure of a little time or
labor. It is as reasonable to expect a man as
give away the• products of his wheat field, to
his orchard or fruit garden.
If you keep vourlsheep and cattle in your
meadows until June, don't complain next win
ter because you are compelled to purchase hay
for your st'oclv.
The man who,uses good seed, has a good
soil, and works it in good season, rarely fails of
having a good crap to reward his toil.
Never forfeit your word. The saying in
truth, of any farmer, his word is as good as
his bond," is worth more to him than the interest
of SIO,OOO annually.

Much money. however, is fruitlessly expend
ed in the opersion of draining: Very few of
our native American farmeis are skilful in the
art and like every - other brinch of farming. it
will pay best when well performed. It is by
no means necessary that a hog or swamp should
have a great fall" or inelinatiop. to he well
drained. It is customary to dig ditches down
to the gravel, instead of digging three cr four
inches in depth into the gravel stratum, which,
by the bye, is one great secret in the business
of draining. W here springs abound, either or
below the surface, they most of course, all be
let down into under drains. Ati expert ditcher
will not often be deceived about the location or
source of blind springs tinder the surface which
generally do most mischief. Stich springs de

drains is of- the -utmost importance. Twenty
four to thirty . inches will in most places be
found a sufficient depth. Thirty inches wide
at the top, sloped to eighteen at the bottom, are
the common dimensions of i good ditch ; ii the
gravel, substratum is more or less shallow, the
deptit should always be determined by it.—
Stones, for many reasons, form the best material
fur filling such drains. After shOvelleag the
bottom of the drain entirely clean of gravel or
mud, the first layer of stone for a foot in depth.
should be set in a vertical position, leaving no
opening or covert; the stones afterwards may be
levelled promiscuously within eight inches of
the surface, reserving the smallest stone for the
top; this done; cover the ,stone, first - with the
inverted sod carefully cut from the surface of
the ditch, and preserved for this purpose. Last
ly fill in over the sod all the earth thrown out
by digging. which will elevate the surface, but
tt will settle down in due time. -
This method of draining I have practiced,
and prefer it to all ,others . An inexperienced
farmer would profit by employing an experienc
ed ditcher from Scotland or Ireland.—.Blbany
What will not thetingenuity of man contrive
A method has been discovered of inoculating
cheese ; or in other words of transporting the
character of an old cheese Into a new one. The
rather curious idea is brought forward in a com
munication to the Agricultural Journal, by John
Robinson, Esq., Secretary of the Royal Socie
ty of Ethubtirg. If it be required," says he,
• to communicate to a cheese the flavor and ap
pearance of an old one. it may be done by the
insertion in the new cheese of proportions of the
old containing the blue mould. The little scoop
that is used in samples of cheese, is a ready
means of performing the operations by chang
ing ten or a dozen rolls which it extracts. and
placing them to disseminate the germ of the
blue mould all over the cheese.
A new Stilton cheese treated in this way,
and well covered up from the air a lew weeks
becomes thoroughly impregnated with mould.
and generally with a flavor not to be distinguish
ed from the old one. I have sometimes treated
half a Lancastei cheese in this way, have left
the other half in its natural state, and have been
much amused with the remarks of our friends
on the sulking superiority of the - English cheese
over the Scotch one."
If this ingenious plan be fotind really success
full on repeated trials by others, Robinson will
deserve our thanks fur bringing it ((award.—
The next invention we shall hear of will pro
bAly be that of inoculating legs of mutton,
and turning them into beef.—Maine Fanner.

Then take a quarter of a pound of common

Let the hams lie after this from four to seven
days, according to the size of the hams.
Then place them in a salt pickle strong
enough to bear an egg: fur three weeks. Then
soak eight hours in fresh water.
Then hang in the kitchen, or other more
convenient place, to dry for's fortnight. Then
smoke from three to five days, till well smoked.
Then wrap them up in strong tar paper, ty-

Dear Sir—Our M . Jones has been in a very loyalty
of health for more than a year; he has had the Warta
of the bestmedical' advice our count, affordi, and ale
visited your'city during the past summer, but found as
relief. On the 15th of April la-t, we purchased a tuff
dozen bottles of your Tonic Vermifuge, and a half do.
zen boxes of your Sanative Pills. Through earelesinew
in packing the articles in a dry goads box, one half the
Vennifuge was broken. Mr. Jones coaßienced with
the Pills, and after taking a few doses, felt a decided'
improvement. The three bottles of Vermifuge, +shah
came safe to hand, brought from him, he thinks, not
lees than ONE THOUSAND WORMS, and perhaps
many more. He is now in better health than he na
been in for many years. and hope a few more bodes of
your Vermifuge and Pills will effect a petma rent cure._
All our physicians have entirely mistaken - his case; Fro;
