All these positions are false. It is true, a fait
'proportioa.of alumina is valuable to soils, and in
the absence of carbonaceous matter is absolutely
necessity for the retentity s.f manures, but it isnot
true that the tenacious property LI: clay need exist!
to such an extent as to prevent the lice filtration of
pure water, before the minutes will be retained—
far many snits Wh:ult will pass pure water readily,
still retain, from impure water, all its impurities,
pertaining only the pure water to descend indeed
this is true of all arable soils, and if it were nut so.
the water in all our wells would be unlit to drink,
frdm being surcharged with soluble organic mat.
Even the brown'fluitla of the bam•yard will not
leach downwanl in the soil ; without leaving all the
weld matter in the surface. Dig in an old barn
yard, but a Jew inches below where the soil has not
been before distuibid, and it will be round not to
have become dark colored ; and not to contain any
undue proportion of the soluable matters resident in
the Suiface, bat to be like the subsoil of adjoining
fields. Alumina (clay) has the curious property of
recesvatg and retaining all animal and vegetable
substances, and their gaseous products, until ab
stracted again by growing plants, and f_u this reason
a free clayey loam will pt.rily water during its pas
•tge through the surface soil, retaining all the ter.
tilixing substances originally held in the solution,
and permitting the pure water to pass awn ward
Nor does this retaining power cease wi;h organic
substances alone,. for many of the alkalies are also
. retained, and all of them to a certain extent.
Excess of lime, pots-h or magnesia will pass
down and therefore the chemist finds variable por.
lions of these alkalies in our well water. This pr.
cal ar property ''‘ , l clay was owed by Mr. Tree h.
maker of hasten, in his public addiesses many
years since, and in our public addressee before the
American Institu e as far tu.ck as 1810, the CIRRI
wattle ate set tor•h. Within the last two years,
Professor Way and other English chemists are
claiming this as a new discovery.
Alumina is not the only substance in soils which
has this retaining power far carbon in every form In it
similar properties, and it is not important whether
charcoal dust be artificially added, or exist in the
the soil by the decay of former vegetation or at
manures; for in either case, carbon is the result,
and as such has similar retaining powers to those
of clay. Thus charcoal dust placed for a time near
a ferment'ng dung heap, will receive and reiiin the
gases arising honi decomposition, and it placed in
the soil will give out those gases again to the roots
of the growing plants. Privies, stables, are
rendered inodoruus by the use of charcoal dust.—
Decomposed peat, turf, swamp, muck, &c , are but
varied forms of carbon, with some more partially
decomposed vegetable matter.
The dark color of soils is doe to the presence of
carbine ; humus, vegetable monk, d c. , are but
modifications of carbon. AU know that an old
black garden soil will retain manure longer than
field soils and that a less. quantity of manure will
act in them, for the simple reason that the carbon
(charcoal,) contained in them and arising from pre.
•tow decay, retains the resultant gas's from the
decomposition of the manure until used op by plants
14t any farmer try the following experiment, and
he will be satisfied as to the troth of the statement.
Prepare four barrels by taking out the upper
beady, and boring small holes in the lower heads,
stand the barrels on end and 611 them with the ltd.
No. 1. By/en raMI, with one-tenth the bulk of
clay intimately mixed throcetiont the mass.
No. 2 Barren sank with one-tenth of finely
ground charcoal dust.
No. 3. A dsik colored loam of garden soil
No 4. Barren .and alone
Pour on all four barrels the brown solution from
the barn-yard, and it will be found that the water
tanning out of the bottoms , of Nos. 1, 2 and 3, will
be colorless and without smell , while that from Dirt%
4 will be unaltered and as offensive as when plac.
ed on top. The question may now be asked, "If
the soluble results of vegetable decay do not alter
downward, what becomes of them!" We answer
that resident in the earth's sot lace, from the cum
bitted influences of son and air they decay and fait
the gaseous form; it the soil contain. either clay
or carbon, these gases are absorbed by them, until
abstracted by growing plants. But if these sub
stances are not resident in the soil, then the gases
rise into the atmosphere, and are absorbed by bet
terd tepared soils elsewhere, or are carried to the
ocean and are thus lost for time from the land.
' Let our readers reflect that both vegetable and
shimsl production* of the earth's surface are cot -
tinually decaying, and that nothing but the facts we
have stated can account for continued fertillity
For, if the results of decay could fitter downward
in solution with water, long before this time, the
whole amount of organic constituents would have
passed below the fertile surface, allour wells would
be filled with misses of filth, and both animal and
vegetable life would have ceased. The simile
facts are, that all organi: manures do decay in the
earth's surface, and are only lost by rising in the
gaseous form', and not by sinking below the roots
of plants, and therefore they should be plowed an
der to snob a depth that their resultant gases, when
rising, shall meet with sufficient quantity of alun.t•
via or carbon to arrest them.

T was on the verge of dui grave, and so Tar gone that
1. my Emily and friends had lost all hopes of my re.
covert' ; and when in this situation, having been res
cued by the use of Schenck's Puhnonie Syrup, I de
oho to testify, with grateful emotion to De. Schenck,
the unspeakable benefit I have received from the use
of his invaluable medicine.
Early last felt. I contracted a violent coil, and .in
consequence of whichl had chills, alternated with fa
fun. pains in my right breast and shoulder blade, with
s bed cough. and no expectoration. I kept getting
worse until I took my bed, and had the attendance of
sky family physician. teras under his ure about four
weeks, and at the expiration of that time was reduced
so low that despair took hold of myself and friends.
and even my physician abandoned me and gave me
op to die with the hasty consumption. My appetite
was gone. my bowels very irregular. fever and night
sweats, pain in my breast end shoulder. attended with
a distressing cough, which was very tight ; my flesh
had nearly all gone, and was so weak that I could
scarcely raise my head from the pillow, and was truly
an object of pity to behold. My friends had been sent
for to see me die. and my sick bed was surrounded by
kind and empathizing neighbon, who bad come to
, witness my departure from this world.
When all rays of hope bad fled of my recovery, a
neighbor, Mr. David Conrad, proposed to try Schenck's
Palmonic Syrup, with a view of loosening my cough
and relieving me of the tough phlegm, and as a means
of affording temporary relief, remarking of the tithe.
"that I was too far gone for the Syrup to be of any
permanent benefit." My wife, anxious for the relief
of my intense sufferings, procured some of the Pul•
runic Syrup. I found it afforded me relief, and con
tinued using it. I could feel its healing influence
upon my lungs.
I continue to improve under its use, and my friends
were much gratified to witness my _unexpected tin.
pavement; many of my neighbors came to took at me
u one raised from the dead.
My cough now became loose.. and I felt something
break, w en I bad the pain in my West, and I dis
charged large quantities of yellow matter. I have for
weeks discharged and raised a spit box full of matter
every day, with bard lump' like grains of something.
My bowels now became regular and natural, and my
appetite was so far improved, that I could scarcely re
frain from eating too much. My strength improved,
and I regained my flesh. "
I continued to improve in every respect soon after I
commenced using the Syrup, and the improvement
continued until Iwu restored to my health. I have
passed through the inclement weather of the latter
Part of winter and the spring, and feel as well now as
ever I felt in my life, and I am this day a living testi
mony of the great efficacy of Schenck's Pulmontc
Syrup in curing pulmonary diseases.
Lest this statement be thought too highly catered by
some people, I subjoin certificates of a number of the
inhabitants of Tscony, who saw me at different times
during my dig:lase, and never expected to see me restor

going statement for the benefit of suffering mankind.
I reside at Tacony,and am well known by most o

The undersigned, residents of Tacony„ eight miles
above Philadelphia. being well acquainted with John
C. Green, and the circumstances attending his case,
feel impelled by a deep sense of imperative duty, to
make universally known to the public his entire mos.
cry from the very last stages of Pulmonary Consump
tion. So entirely helpless was his condition, having
been but a brief period since in that rapid,y sinkin4
and emaciate state, as try ut•erly preclude, in the opin
ion of his physicians and friends, who watched by his
bedside, all hopes of even a temporary recovery and
restoration to his present robust health. Thus the care
ful use of yourqnvaluable Specific, the Pulmonic
up, makesit our belief, under the circumstances of his
previous prostrate, not to say dying condition, one of
the most startling results that the whole annals of niedi
oat skill or science ears-produce. It deserves to be im
perishably recvded to your credit, and secure to you,
the greatest discoverer of this hitherto remediles■ dis
ease, • lasting monument and a world-wide reputation
in the healing art, that no time may either diminish or
destroy. Having witnessed Mr. Green's distressing
struggles and sufferings from a continued cough, su
peradded to the other symptoms consequent upon, or
attending to the last stages of a pulmonary drsrase ;
and moreover, it being so generally believed by his nu
merous friends that no human power could relieve, or
protract his life, much less restore him back again to
his former health, we feel it thus our duty to give our
unqualified testimony of Mr. Green's perfect .recovery,
by means of the exclusive use of your wonderful Syr
up ; and we should indeed rejoice if we could he made
the humble instruments of relief and cure to others who
may bean unfortunate as to be similarly aided.
