Ilu )i.>f!vcs with good gardens ;at least, so far
as til. writer hits travelled, lie has seldom seen
■. lost l.e would eel! a good garden on farms. —
The excuse for litis neglect is generally the
satn. with all of them they " have no time to
attend to sncli small in itteiv." And vet it
may safely he asserted that an acre of ground
appropriated to a good garden, will he more
profitable to the farmer than any otlmr ten
acres of the farm. The interests of the farmer,
the comforts of l.is family, the good condition
and health of whole household, require such n
garden on every farm in the country. And it
should Je a gitro'i'n, not a mere excuse for one,
a mere weedy patch. It should lie one so
managed and arranged that every vegetable of
a wholesome quality for human food should be
raised in it in perfection, and at the earliest
season. After a Winter's diet on solid and
generally suited animal food, the human consti
tution requires the deterging operations of free
vegetable and fruit diet; and, as a general
rule, no one can dispense with it safely. Be
sides this, the natural appetite calls for it, and
there are few pleasures that may be so safely
and e. n beneficially indulged in. In the latter
part of Winter and early in Spring, measures
should be taken to secure airly vegetables of
all kinds capable of very early cultivation.—
Details will not be expected here; there an
other books and papers appropriated to such
information ; but I cannot help saying, that
when I am at a farm house, at a season when
early peas, beans, cabbages, cucumbers, pota
toes, green corn, lettuce, Ac., are properly in
season, and find none of these luxuries on the
table, nothing but the blue beef, salt pork and
beans or potatoes of Winter. I am free to say
T do not envy the farmer's life nor Ins family
their enjoyments. These very people are fond
enough of such things when they go to tlie city,
and it is not therefore want of taste. It is
simplv the fault of negligence. Why may not
every farmer in the State have every kind
of early vegetables on his table as early as any
gardener near the cities can raise them ? There
is not a single reason why lie should not, while
there a a great many why he should. The
gardeners iinve to incur a very considerable
expense in procuring hot manure for their hot
beds, whilst the fanner has it in his barnyard.
The gardener Ins everything to purchase, and
draw a considerable distance, whilst the farmer
lias nothing to buy. The small quantity of
lumber required is probably rotting on his
premises. If would only be a source of amuse
ment during Winter, for him to construct the
frame of a hot bed, and prepare the manure
and bed for use. Having done this, and got
his plants in a thrifty state lie can, in a short
time, when the season arrives, get his garden
ground in order and make his plantations.—
And then he will have al! these vegetable
luxuries as early as any of his town friends can
purchase them. It only requires a little in
dustry and attention to accomplish this, and as
said before, his enjoyment, his health, and even
bis interest, as well ac the comforts of his
family will be benefitted by it.
Fruit and Orchards.
Although the important subject of fruit
culture is now receiving far greater attention
ihan any former period, still it does not receive
that general attention which it merits. True,
many are devoting all their time and energy to
the raising of fruit, and realize large profits
from their orchards ; but every farm should
be well supplied with the variotis kinds of fruit
tr" s, and each farmer have the pleasure of
eating the fruit of his own cultivating.
In setting out an orchard, select a spot of
ground say two acres, (it makes no particular
differenee on what part of the farm, provided
it suits the convenience of the farmer,) that is
under good cultivation ; make the gronnd
mellow, by plowing, sub-soiling ami harrowing ;
then furrow it out, each way, with the plow,
making the furrows thirty or thirty-four feet
apart. After the gronnd is prepared in this
way, dig the holes (of course where the
furrows crossj large, say six feet in diameter,
and eighteen inches deep, so that in setting the
trees, the roots can be placed in their natural
In transplanting, it is necessary to have
Mary persons, one to lipid the tree steadily in
its proper place, while the other places the soil
around it ; this soil should be from the com
post heap, or that taken from the hole may be
used, if thoroughly mixed with well-rotted
manure. The tree should be set about as deep
as it stood in the nursery.
Iu selecting fruit-trees, especially the apples,
care should be taken to procure the varieties
that produced best in the section where they
are to be transplanted, for while some kinds
yield well in one region, they are nearly worth
less in another. The trees should he two or
three years old from the bud or graft, when
set in the orchard. The usual time for trans
planting is in the spring and fall ; the former
we recommend, yet some prefer the latter.
It is a well-known fact that the apple tree
does not arrive at perfection iu one year or two
seasons, but that it requires years to attain its
growth ; therefore, after the orchard has been
set out with labor and pains, tlie farmer must
noU-Jlnnk Ins work fiiiished, and that the trees
will hereafter take care of themselves, and in
due Mine produce a bountiful harvest ; but
year after year he must not only stir the ground,
and keep ii loose, but aLo feed it well with
manure. Besides, these are those rile mahires
the caterpillars anil borer, who not only in
habit, Iml are ever endeavoring to destroy the
orchard ; they must be routed from their pleas
ant abodes and slain without mercy.
When uecessury, the trees should be care
fully mid judiciously pruned with the saw, and
not with the axe. Fruit intended for market,
or winter use, should Me gathered with
out bruising, as this is essential for its preserva
Ladies and Agriculture.

As showing the interest the English ladies
take iu agriculture, 1 cannot but relate a
casual interview 1 chanced to have wit ii an
Knglish lady, in going up in the express train
from London" to York, ller husband had
bought a iiook at the stand as we were about
starting, and remarked to her that "It was
one of her favorite American authors- II iw
iHoHNK?" I casually observed " 1 was pleased
to sec youffg American authors found admirers
with Knglish ladies," when the conversation
turned on bdoks and authors But I said to
myself pretty soon, '• this a literary lady pro
haoly her husband is an ditoror reviewer, find
sue uses the •' sci. sots" for him -at all events |
L must retreat from thLdiscission about authors.
modern poets, and poetry. M hat should -a
farmer know critically ot such things ! 1' I
wire oulv in those fields —it the conversation
could be"made to turn upon crops or cattle—
then I should feel quite at home." I finally
pointed out a field of wheat, and remarked that
it was very fine. The lady observing it, said,
" Sir, I think it is too thin—a common fault
tills season, as the seeding was late. Those
drills," .-he added, turning to her husband fur
confirmation, "cannot be more than ten
inches apart, and you see, sir, ground is not
completely covered-—twelve and even fifteen
inches is now preferred for width of drills, and
two bushels.of seed to the acre will then en
tirely cover the ground, on good land, so you
can hardly distinguish the drills."
If the goddess Ceres had appeared with her
sheaf, or her cornucopia, 1 could not have been
taken more by surprise. A lady descanting
on the width of uhcut drills and the quantity
of seed !
" I will try her again," said I, "thismay be
a chance shot;' and remarked in reference to
a field of plowed ground we were passing, that
it broke up in great lumps, alul could hardly,
be put ia good tilth. "We have much clay
like this," she replied, " and formerly it was
difficult to cultivate it in a tillage crop ; but
since the introduction of CROSKIIJ.'S Clod
Crusher they will make the most beautiful tiltli
on these lands, and which are now regarded as
among the best wheat lands."
The conversation turned on cattle. She
spoke of the best breed of cows for the pail—
Ayrshires and Devons ; told me where the best
cheese was made—Cheshire ; the best butter
—lreland ; where the best miik-muiiLs were to
"Oh !" said I, " I was mistaken ; this
charming, intelligent woman, acting so natural
and unaffected, dressed so neat and so very
plain, must be a farmer's wife ; and what a
hcljHnate he has in her ! yes, a single brace
let clasps a fair, rounded arm—that's all."
The train stopped at York. ?vo sooner had
my travelling companions stepped upon the
platform, than I noticed they were surrounded
by half a dozen servants men and women—the
men in full livery. It turned out to be Sir
JOIIX and Lady 11. This gentlemen, I learn

Recently there has much been written in
regard to the Lobos guano question, which has
mused no small stir among the importers,
venders and consumers of this important
manure, in England and this country. The
annual removal of organic and inorganic matter,
contained in the productions of the field, dairy,
and stalls of the rural districts of our country,
will, no doubt, in process of time, oblige every
thrifty farmer to use imported manure, contain
ing those ingredients especially, which shall bo
wanting in his soil, for production of remuner
ative crops. The cheapness at which these
foreign manures, of a good quality, can be
afforded in the American market, will be a
subject of great interest to the agricultural pro
ducer, in all parts of the country.
Yet every American farmer should be con
stantly impressed with the vast interests con
nected with his profession, in saving and mak
ing all the fertilizing matter at home, on his
own premises, he possibly can, thereby saving
his money, to be otherwise expended in im
provements, increasing the productiveness of
his lands, and tlms putting within his reach, at
a small outlay, the means of rendering tliem
more and more fertile, as every succeeding crop
is gathered into his garner.
The object of this article is to recommend to
the American farmer the manufacture of do
mestic guano, from the droppings of his barn
yard fowls. Let liiin have erected a suitable
hen-house, and then insist that every old
rooster, hen and chicken on his premises, shall
make it their resting place for the night, at
least, under the penalty of death, after a suit
able time of training has been expended on
them in vain. At the close of every week,
cause these premises to be thoroughly swept
and the products thus obtained to be carefully
packed away in barrels or tight boxes, mixed
with about one-third its weight of plaster.
When you have your corn-ground ready for
planting in your crop, not before, have a box in
readiness, sufficiently large to hold two or three
barrels, and mix well with this domestic guano,
about double the quantity of wood-ashes, a
peek of pulverised charcoal, and four quarts of
salt, to the barrel. Take a small handful of
this mixture and drop it into each hill, dust it
over with the soil, from one-half to an inch in
depth, then drop your seed, cover as usual and
if your ground is able to perfect the crop in the
latter part of the season, you will find reward
in Lite day of harvest.
I saved, from eighteen liens, about nine
bushels the past year, and found it superior to
half a shovelful of hog manure to each hill.—
Tiie increased productiveness of that part of
the field, where this mixture was applied, will
more than furnish the r< quired stock for a
year's food for my fowls. lam well satisfied j

and thousands of sufferers who were deemed beyond the
reach of human aid have been restored to their friends and
usefulness, to sound health and the enjoyments of life, by
this all-powerful antidote to diseases of the lungs anil

Dr. HALSEYS' FOREST WINE.—The
discovery of the FOREST WINE i" the greatest bles
sing of the age. Put tip in Quart Bottles, a single Imtlle
of which does more pood, and poos further in the cure of
Disease, than ton hot ties of any Sarsaparilla in use, and
warranted to cure without an unpleasant or weakening
The method hy which all Sarssnnnrillas. and other simi
lar medicines are prepared, is hy boiling the Boots of'plants
to obtain the extracts. Their medicinal virtues are thus
principally evaporated and destroyed.
It is not to be wondered at then, that Ift and even 2ft
bottles of these Sarsapai illas are sometimes taken without
any perceptible benefit. Not so with the Forest Wine.—
By the invention of a wonderful chemical apparatus, a per
fect wine is produced without boating ; retaining, at the
same time, all the primitive healing properties of the rare
medicinal plants of which it is composed, thus rendering
the Forest Wine the most efficient medicine the world ever
produced, at the same time time the most agreeable.
This is to certify, that I have used Dr. Halscy's Forest
Wine iu my family with the most entire success.' My wife
was badly "afflicted with Neuralgia, affections of the Spine
and Kidneys, and general Debility. She found speedy re
lief, and regained her health by the use of the Forest
From my own knowledge of this excellent medicine, 1
confidently recommend it for the good of others who may
lie suffering from similar complaints. It is the liest medi
cine with which I am acquainted, and those who are afflic
ted with the above, or any similar disease, may safely re
ly on its virtues. K. (1. MUSSKY.
MO UK TESTIMONY FROM COHOEK.
Pit. G. W. HAI.SKY—Dear Sir : My wife last autumn was
reduced to a low state of Debility." My family physician
advised her to take your Forest Wine. Accordingly I
went to Mr. Terry's, your agent in this town, and procur
ed a Isittle of it, which restored her in a very short time
to perfect health.

DREADFUL COUGH, DEBILITY, AND LOSS OF
DR. lIAI.SEY: Hempstead, Dec. 1, 1847.
A Isittle of your Forest Wine and box of Dills, which
I procured of James Carr, (your agent for this place,) has
done wonders for me. 1 had lieen in a state of decline for
more than a year, afflicted with a dreadful cough, pain
in the breast, general debility, and loss of appetite. 1 lie
came almost a skeleton, and hail been unable to leave my
room for more than two months; my friends told me "l
had the Consumption and despaired of my recovery. I
could not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
1 had taken, or mv physician, until your Wine and Dills
were procured. The first dose of the Dills brought up from
my stomach, much phlem and greenish matter, and mv
stools were perfectly black. 1 then commenced taking
your Forest Wine three times a day, my appetite began to
return immediately, my cough left me, and in less than
two weeks I was almost well. 1 now enjoy better health
than I ever did before,having increased twentr-five pounds
in seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Dills are highly
valued in this vicinity, and 1 owe my recovery entirely to
their virtues. Yours, respectfully,

Dear Sir——ln the summer and fall of last year I had a
severe complaintot the Kidneys, which rendered me unite
unfit for business. I procured" your Forest Wine and Dills
which cured me iu a few weeks time, and 1 have since en
joyed better health than 1 had for inanv years prcviouslv.
From their efficacy iu my oaui case, and from what 1 know
your medicines to have done for others, ! ain induced to
recommend them as the liest medicines with which 1 am
acquainted. Yours, respectfully,
