The Potato.,
This plant, solighly esteemed by- the generali
ty of mankind, and of the first importance as an
article of food for the poorer elassf,s, is evidently
and rapidly advancing to its final extinction in this
' We cap hardly conceive of a greater calamity to
the people of this cotuttry than the ,utter
tion of the potato. We have once .litaitn . visited by
a total failure of the wheat crop in many sections
of our country, when wheat was imported for dO
mestic use from Europe, suppose a more exten
sive failure of the wheat crop to happen again, an
occurrence 'which we are not by any means secure
against, and suppose the total extinction of the po
tato at the same time, who will undertake to calcu
late the inconvenience that would ensue to the peo
ple of this country "f All people Ipok with fearful
~ apprehenson' to the sad event.
The plant is beset by a disease which admits of
no cure, it is a lingering, flattering malady,' like
c. sp , I. ion in the human family. It intermits
;'• .. . ally, resumes a healthy aspect, for a time,
returnts . with accumulated strength, and death ensue.
Variens conjectures are afloat as to the cause of the
.diseased many remedies prescribed for its cure,'
but they have all thus far proved abortive: I do
riot belive that the true cause of the disease has yet
been fully ascertained. I believe the efliCient cause
ii inherent in the plant itself. It is an exotic, and
it segms that by an established law of Nature,
plants transplanted from their native to a foreign
soil will, by loni ll and successive reproduction from
the original stoc sicken and decay from exhaus
tion. The longevity of plants that have been trans
planted froni a foreign Soil depends much on the
harditiesser delicacy of the original stock in the
place of its nativity. The potato is among the
' hardiest plants, and has undergone the longest
series of of reproduction in soil foreign to its nature
of any exotic known to agriculture.
The first discovery of the plant by a Eirropean
was by Pizarro, in his passage over the. Andes in
1526—'27. Ale there used it as an article of food
for his famished soldiers. After the conqueror
passed the Andes, Mr. Prescot says, " higher up
the Cordilleras, beyound the limits of maize; dpi,
\vas found the potato. the introduction of which into
Euroi e has made an- era in the history.of agricul--
titre. Whether indigenous to Peru, or imported
from the neighborhood of Chili, it fanned the great
staple of the more elevated plains, and its culture
was centnued to a height many thousand feet above
;the limits of perpetual' snow in the temperate lati•
'odes of Europe. Wild specimens of the veg,eta
might be seen still higher, springing Op spon
ously amidst the stunted shrubs that -clothed
t fry sides of the Cordilleras." It was introdne
- Spain about the middle of the 16th century
an o England in 1596. .

ARTIFICIAL At. rt.—There are now made in Al
bany beautiful d ..r knobs of common clay and
some other mixt . res. Mr. Pepper of Albany, we
believe is the in •entor, and it is not an incitation of
agate merely, is as real agate as that formed in
Nature's own !Oratory. From this by a preeess
of remelting and careful but expeditious moulding
and baling, in ovens similar in appearance to those
used in bakeries, Air. Pepper manufactures
door knobs and!other articles or household orna
merit4f7l;re dtrrability and beauty. These . door
knobs are of the highest polish and are blended
with - a - Variety cif colors an 4 are strong and beauti
ful. Set in silver or bronze, the knobs are sold,
at a rate which already commands the market.—
It is perhaps AT generally known that the common
clay fused in a crucible runs like water, and makes
a beautiful stone. The door knobs in the Albany
Argillo Works are fused and then put into the an
nealing nieu. 'After the knobs come out of this,
they have no appearance of Agate until they are
grodnd and polished, which is done by a cast iron
grindrtrinr on which a stream of wet and sand con
tinually flows. The method of grinding is not in-'
genious„ all being done by hand. It is not pos
sible to conceive to what perfection the manufacture
of glass and earthenware may be bought, and to
what purposes the allele may yet be appled. The
balance spring of a... Chronometer is note made of
glass, as a entistiniteforsteel, and possesses a greaten
degree of elasticity anda greater power of resisting
the alternations, of heat and cold. One of these
chronometers with agless I:valance-spring has been
exposed' to compejition with nine other chronome
ters on a long voyage, and the 'result was in favor
of the glass-spring one.-IScieniific American.
DittisisG.—h is almost needless to observe that
the importance of draining- is not properly appre
lciated by our farmers, or that few have practised it
systematically. , A writer ori•tbis subject very just
remarks : "Our ;best lands are denominated
cold and wet soils, because the water is suffered to
soak into the ground, and there remain until it des
troys the power Of prsdocing little else than
or a poor crop of poor gqisi:" We are scarcely
able to define that peculiar species of hallucination
under which those of our farming friends suffer.

productive'soils to remain submerged, while they
exhaust-their wea l lthand energies on and and sterile
uplands; casting their manure broadest, and taxing
their utmost efforts in order to y wax .poorer rather
than, richer while by properly draining and manu
ring these' submerged lands, they might render
them . far knore productiie in valuable products
than their sandrand porous soils, which are de
nominated dyy, simply because they drain them
