Cutting Hay.
MB. UREAS :—There are t present a multi
tude of conflicting opinions in relation to the I
period when grass should be cut, some contend- 1
ing that the operation of mowing should be j
commenced as soon as the development of the :
f.ower has commenced ; others, that the scythe'
should by i)i means be introduced till the seed !
has become partially matured, as they suppose j
the superior value of this adds more to the
value of the plant as a whole, than it abstracts.
No definite rules, however, can belaid down in
tliis matter, as practice must necessarily vary
with the contingencies of temperature, aspect,
climate and the specific character ol the grasses
ordinary cultivated. For my own part I think
that one should commence as soon as inflor
esence begins. He will then have time to get
through haying before the crop becomes too
far advanced towards maturity, and Lis hay,
though less heavy, and consequently somewhat
less valuable as a market product, perhaps,
will be much more succulent and sweet, that if
permitted to stand till a later period, or till it
becomes dead ripe.
The old method of making hay in the siui,
and drying it till scarcely a particle of moisture
is left in the fibre, is now almost universally
deprecated. On this subject, oue of the
greatest farmers who has ever lived, has the
following remarks :
" As soon as the grass is fairly freed from
moisture, it is put into narrow heaps, which
are made as high as possible ; and to prevent
these from falling down, a small stake is driven
into the ground, around which the grass is
carefully arranged with the hands. A hand
ful of grass is then taken from one of the
swaths, and the longest and strongest portions
are chosen from it to cover the top of the heap
or bay-cock with, care being taken to trim the
upper or (lowering part of the grass downward.
These pyramidial heaps are theu suffered to
remain until the grass of which they are com
posed, is thoroughly dry which is generally
somewhere between the eight and fifteenth day. i
On the heap being opened, the grass in the
interior of it will generally be found to retain
its hue and freshness. 1 have seen grass thus
made into large heaps, in dry and windy
weather, which has made very vapidly with
out requiring to be moved and has been quite
green. Temporary rain or showers will not do
it any harm beyond that of depriving the
external parts of some portion of its greenness ;
but should the wet weather continue for any
considerable period of time, there is a possibility
of the hay becoming too much compressed ;
it will then be necessary to open the heaps, and
shake and loosen the hay, in order to prevent
it from acquiring an unpleasant flavor."
This may be obviated by making the cocks
small —say of about eighty pounds weight,
when first put up, and covering carefully with
green grass. I give you this for what it is
worth—some may be induced to try it this
season, 011 a small scale, and report the result.
One thiug is admitted by every one, which is,
that the less the hay, in making, is exposed to
the sun, the more valuable it is—it retains its
color and flavor better, and consequently is
worth a great deal more per ton than when
dried up by the burning rays of the sun. Jam
respectfully yours.— Germuiitoini Telegraph.
SHEEP FEEDING. —The J. 11. R. correspondent
of the Germantown Telegraph details interest
ing experiments made to test the relative value
of carrots, turnips and beets for sltecp. The
beets were discontinued, because the animals
refused to cat them, except upon compulsion of
the sharpest hunger. His method with carrots
and ruta-baga turnips- he describes as follows :
Three sheep were confined in a yard, in
which there was a close shed for feeding, with
plenty of water supplied from a cistern. Three
more were placed in a similar enclosure, the
fixtures of which were iu every respect precisely
the same, and that there might be no discre] -
auey whatever in the management of the two
parcels, even their water was supplied from the
same source. All the animals were of the
same age, and nearly of the same weight. In
the morning chopped ruta-bagas were given to
the sheep in one pen. and chopped carrots to
those in the other. This feed was regularly
repeated at noon, and again at sundown ; the
quantity allowed each animal being one peek
(by weight) of each.
Salt and common house ashes were kept
constantly in both apartments, mixed in the
proportions of one of the former to three of
the later. Good, clean leaves from the woods
were scattered daily over the shed bottom-,
and a few handsful of hue clover hay kept by
them to supply the end.
The experiment commenced 011 the 12th of
November, and was brought to a final close on
the 12th of the ensuing March. Both sets did
remarkably well, as indeed might be expected
front the careful and systematic manner in
which they were tended and fed ; but those
kept oil carrots gained each eight and thrfte
fourths pounds more than those fed on ruta
bagas. 111 April the six sheep produced six
lambs—fine, healthy ones, which have grown to
maturity, and are by far the most valuable
animals to be fouutl iu the flocks to which they
Ct BRANT TREES.- —Currant bushes may as
well be made trees as shrubs. In the spring
of 1831 my father set cuttings for currant
bushes. I determined to experiment on one of
these cuttings, and as it grew, 1 pinched off
all the leaves except the top tuft, which I let
grow. The cutting was about fourteen inches
long, and during the summer the sprout from
this grew ten inches. The next spring I pinch
ed off' all the leaves to about half way up the
first year's growth, so as to leave the lowest
liiub two feet from the ground. Is branched
well, and became a handsome lit tie dwarf tree.
When it came to bear fruit, it was more pro
ductive than any other bu.-li iu tlie garden,
and the fruit larger. It was less infested with
spiders and other insects ; hens could not pick
off the fruit, and grass and weeds were more
easily kept from the roots, and it was an orna
ment instead of a blemish. Now I would pro
pose that currant cuttings be set in rows about
four or five feet apart each way—let them be
loug and straight ones—and trained into trees.

To HOUSEKEEPERS. —Monsieur Loysel, n
French chemist, says that he iias discovered
that by grinding tea in the same manner as
coffee, before infusion, the quantity of exhila
rating fluid obtained is nearly doubled. The
experiment is worth trying, especially if with
an additional strainer similar to those used by
:te Fr?g?h suspended from the snout of the

J. A lowing remedies are "tiered to the public as the iicst,
most perfect, which medical science can afford. AYKK'S
CATHARTIC PILLS have been prepared with the utmost
skill which the. medical profession of this age possesses,
and their effects show they have virtues which surpass
any combination of medicines hitherto known. Other pre
parations do more or les good : but this cures such dan
gerous complaints, so quick and so surely, as to prove' an
efficacy and a power to uproot di-euse beyond any thing
which men have known before. By removing the obstruc
tions of the internal organs and stimulating them into
healthy action, they lenovate the fountains of life and
vigor-— health courses anew through the body, and the
sick man is well again. They are adapted to disease, and
disease only, for when taken by one in health they pro
duce but little effect. This is the perfection of medicine.
It is antagonistic to disease, and no more. lender chil
dren may take them with impunity. If they are sick they
will cure them, if they are well they will do them no
Give them to some patient who has len prostrated with
bilious complaint; see his bent-up, tottering form straight
en with strength again ; see his long-loatappetite return ;
sec his clammy features blossom into health. Give them
to some sufferer whose foul blood has burst nut in scrofula
till his skin is covered with sores ; who stands, or sits, or
lies in anguish. He has been drenched inside and out with
exei v every potion which ingenuity could suggest. Give
him "these l'jlls, and mark the effect; sec the scabs fall
from his body : see the new, fair skin that has grown un
der them ;' see the late leper that is clean. Give them to
him whose angry humors have planted rheimiati-m in his
joints and hones'; move him, and he screeches with pain ;
he too has been soaked through every muscle of lii.s body
with linanU'Jits and salves ; give him these Pills to purify
his blood ; thev may not cure liim, for olas ! there cases
which no mortal power can reach : hut mark, he walks
with crutches now, and now he walkes alone : they have
cured him: Give them to the lean, sour,haggard dyspep
tic. whose gnawing stomach has long ago eaten every
smile from his face and every muscle from his body. See
his appetite return, and with it his health; see the new
man. See her that was radiant with health and loveliness
blasted and too early withering away ; want of exercise,
or mental anguish, or some lurking disease has deranged
the internal organs of digestion, assimilation, or.secretion,
till they do they do their office ill. Her blood is vitiated,
her health \f gone. Give her these Pills to stimulate the
vital principle into renewed vigor, to east out the obstruc
tions. and infuse a new vitality into the blood. Now look
again—the rosea blossom on her cheek, and where sorrow
sat, joy hursts from every feature. Fee the sweet infant
wasted with worms. Its wan, sickly features tell you
without disguise, and painfully distinct, that they arc eat
ing its life away. Its pinched-up nose and ears, and rest
less sleeping". tell the dreadful truth in language which
every mother knows. Give it the Pills in large doses to
sweep these vile parasites from the body. Now turn again
and see the ruddy bloom of childhood. Is it nothing to
do these things ?' Nay. are they not the marvel of this
age ? And yet they are done around you every day.
Have you'the less serious symptoms of these distempers,
they are" the easier cured. Jaundice, Costiveness, Head
ache, Sideache. Heartburn. Foul Stomach, Nausea. Pain
in the Bowels. Flatulency, Loss of Appetite. King's Evil,
Neuralgia, Gout, and kindred complaints all arise from the
derangements which these Pills rapidly cure. Take them
perseveringly, and under the counsel of a good Physician
if you can ; if not, take them judiciously by such advice
as we give you. and the distressing, dangerous diseases
they cure, which afflict so many millions of the human race,
are'east out like the devils of old—they must burrow in
the brutes and in the sea. Price 25 cents per box—s boxes

Through a trial of many years and through every nation
of civilized me, AYKK'S UMKKKY PECTORAL has been found
to afford more relief and to cure more cases of pulmonary
disease than any other remedy known to mankind. Case's
of apparently settled Consumption have been cured by it,
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 and
throat. Here a cold had settled on the lungs. The dry,
hacking cough, the glassy eye, and the pale, thin features
of him who was lately lusty and strong whisper to all but
him CONSL MI'TION. lie tries everything ; hut the disease
is gnawing at his vitals, and shows its fatal symptoms
more and more over all his fame. He is taking the Cher
ry Pectoral now : it lues stopped his cough and made his
breathing easy : his sleep is sound at night : his appetite
returns, and with it his strength. The dart which pierced
his side is broken. Scarcely any neighborhood can le
found which has not sonic living trophy like this to shad
ow forth the virtues which have won for the ( berry Pec
toral an imperishable renown. Influenza, Croup, Bron
chitis. Hoarseness, Pleurisy, Whooping Cough, and all ir
ritations of the throat and lungs are easily cured by the
Cherry Pectoral if taken in season. Every family should
have it by them, and they will lind it an idvaluable pro
tection from the insidious prowler which carries off the
parent sheep from many a flock, the darling lamb from
many a home.

pleasure of calling the attention of the public to this useful
invention. The Hive is truly a great improvement on the
old square box ; and the facilities it affords for taking out
tlie honey are as harmless to the hoes, as they are profita
ble to the owner. No resort to drums and pans is needed
to hive the increase in the spring, and no resort to brim
stone. tire and fagot is required to conquer the bees and
procure their honey in the fall. As the bees multiply,
new sections are added to the hive ; and when the honey
is wanted, they are removed accordingly. The arrange
ments for feeding the bees, for changing them to different
parts of the old hive, or to a new one, for ventilation, are
unqn est ion q ldy ahead of anything hitherto known.
A description of this Hive is impossible, without refer
ence to a model, but an examination will satisfy anv one
of its advantages. For sale, Town and Individual Rights,
with hooks, bill of feed. Ac., giving full directions for ma
king the Hive, and managing the Bees.

It is not to be wondered at then, that 10 and even 20
bottles of tin se S i are sometimes taken without
any perceptible benefit. Not so with the Forest Wine.— j
By the invention of a wonderful chemical apparatus, a per
fect wine is produced without beating: retaining, at the
same time, all the primitive healing properties of the rare
medicinal plants of which it is composed, thus rendering j
the Forest AVine the most efficient medicine the world ever i
produced, at the same time time the most agreeable. I
This is to certify, that I have used Dr. TT ilsey's Forest :
AVine in 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, I
confidently recommend it for the good of others who nmy
lie suffering front similar complaints. It is the best medi
cine with which I am acquainted, and those who are afflic
ted with the above, or any similar disease, may safelv re
ly on its virtues. E. ti. MUSSeY.
Du. G. AV. 11 ai-sf.v —Dear Sir : My wife last autumn was
reduced to a low state of Debility." My family physician
advised her to take your Forest AA'itte. Accordingly 1
went to Mr. Terry's, your agent in this town, and procur

to perfect health.

A bottle of your Forest Wine and box of Pills, which
I procured of James Carr. (your agent for thi* place,) has
done wonders for me. 1 had l>eeii 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. I be
came almost a skeleton, and had been unable to leave my
room for more than two months: nty friends told me "l
had the Consumption and despaired'of my recoveay. 1
could not obtain any permanent relief front any medicine
1 had taken, or my physician, until your Wine nud l'ills
were procured. The lirst dose of the i'ills brought up front
my stomach, much phlem and greenish mutter, and my
| stools were perfectly black. I then commenced taking
your Forest AVine three times a day, my appetite began to
return immediately, my rough left me, and in less than
two weeks 1 was almost well. 1 now enjoy better health
I than 1 ever did before, having increased twenty-five pounds
I tn seven weeks. Your Forest AVine and Pills are highh
valued in this vicinity, and I owe nty recovery entirely to
their virtues. Yours, respectfully,

Dr. G. AV. HALSEY : New-York, March 12, 15.",3.
Dear Sir—ln the summer and fall of last year I had a
severe complaint of the Kidneys, which rendered me quite
unfit for business. I procured your Forest AA'ine and Pills
which cured tne in a few weeks time, and I have since en
joyed better health than 1 had for many years previously.
Front their efficacy in my o.wn ease, and from what 1 know
your medicines to have done for others, I am induced to
recommend them as the liest medicines with which I ant
acquainted. Yours, respectfully,
There are thousands cured every year of this disease by
the Forest AA'ine and l'ills; Dyspepsia, Costiveness anil
Indigestion, are kindred complaints, frequently existing
together, and the cure of one is generally the cure of all.
The Forest \\ iue and Pills above all remedies are pre-emi
nent in the cure of Dyspepsia.

Dr. (r. AA r . HALSEY :—Dear Sir—Having been cured of
Dyspepsia by the use of your Forest AA'ine and Pills, I take
the liberty to offer you my name, lelievitig many who
know me may be benefited by your excellent remedies.
For many years I have been afflicted with this malady so
bably that nearly one-third of my time has Wen lost from
business. The Forest Wine and l'ills have restored me to
excellent health, and I cheerfully recommend them, as 1
atn convinced the discovery of these remedies are a bles
