Ashes in Agriculture.
Wood asließ is one of the most important
fertilizers. It is easily obtained in any quantity
and at little or no expense. Take them care
fully from your hearths, and save them until
your corn and potatoes have risen two inches
from the ground ; then take a basket on your
arm and from it take a small handful of ashes
and cast it at the root of your plants, aud hoe
thein soon so as to cover the ashes. By this
means you will increase your crop half.
Ashes contain all the inorganic substances of
the wood or plants which are consumed, part
of these are soluble, and part insoluble, but the
soluble substances mixed with water will dis
solve the insoluble. dissolved potash will
dissolve silica and prepare it for glazing the
stock of the cane corn, wheat, A*e.
Not a particle of ashes should go to waste.
Leached ashes have parted with most of their
potash, but still retain their phosphoric acid,
and most of their lime.
Ashes neutralize acids in the oil ; they warm
rold, mossy, wet places ; they are destructive
to insects ; they assist to break down and
dissolve the coarse fibres aud stocks in the
compost heaps, render hard, clayey soil open,
loamy and fertile.
The potash, so material to most crops, can
be obtained here only from ashes. In granite
regions, potash is obtained from a dissolution of
feldspar, but we have none in this country.
Wheat contains a large portion of potash—
fifty-nine per cent, of the ashes of corn is
carbonate of potash, and one-half of the earthy
part of Irish potatoes, is pure potash.
Save your ashes therefore as carefully as
you do your five and ton cent pieces, and apply
them to your crops with care, and you will find
them of a rich, deep color while growing, and
heavy with nutrimeut at harvest.
BUTTER MAKING. —Not one pound in five of
the butter sold in our cities, under the name of
" Goshed,'' &e., and very little " Country
butter," is fit for human food. Butter makers
should remember these few short rules :
The newer and sweeter the cream, the
sweeter and higher flavored will be the but
The air must be fresh and pure iu the room
or eellur where the milk is set.
The cream should not remain on the milk
Keep the cream in tin pails, or stone pots,
into which put a tea-spoonful of salt at the
beginning, then stir the cream lightly each
morning aud evening ; this will prevent the
cream from moulding or souring.
Churn as often as once a week, and as much
oftencr as circumstances will permit.
Upon churning, add the cream upon all the
milk in the dairy.
Use nearly an ounce of salt to a pound of ;
Work the butter over twice, to free it from
the buttermilk and brine, before lumping and
Be certain that it is entirely free from every
particle of buttermilk, or coagulated milk and
it will keep sweet forever.
In Scotland, a syhpou is sometimes used to 1
separate the milk from the cream, instead of
skimming the pans.— Southern Cultivator.
THE USE OF SNOW.— The past severe winter
iu its effects on plants lias furnished some strik
ing proofs of the protection afforded by snow.
Several specimens of the tree box, some of
them seven or eight feet high, are as brown as
dead grass above the snow line, while all lie
low is as green as emerald. The Japau Quince,
usually regarded as very hardy, although not
destroyed by the extreme cold, was so injured
and checked iu its growth, that while the flow
ers below the snow are an inch and a half in
diameter, and in dense and brilliant clusters,
the exposed portion of the shrub is thinly
furnished with pale red or pink flowers, not one
fifth the size of the former.
The only blossoms of the peach that have
appeared have been a few that were cover .d
by snow drifts ; aud the strong contrast is; ic
color of the wood of the trees, where expo
or protected, has been sufficient to show tin
precise depth of the snow in any part of our
peach orchards. Observations made at the
Royal Gardens at Kew, iu England, (where
the winter has also been very severe,) showed
a difference of nineteen degrees immediately
above aud below the suow.— Country Gentle
HOME-MADE CHLORIDE OF LlME. —Professor
Xasli says, take one barrel of lime, aud vine
bushel of salt. Dissolve the salt in as little
water as will dissolve the whole. Slack the
lime with the water, putting on more water
than will dry-slack it, so much that it will form
a very thick paste : this will not take all the
water. Put on therefore a little of the re
mainder daily, until the lime lias taken the
whole. The result will be a sort of impure
cab;ride of lime, but a very powerful deodori-1
zer, equally good for allont-door purposes with ;
the article which is bought under that name
at the apothecary's, and costing not one
twentieth part as much. This should be kept
under a shed, or some out-building. It should
be kept moist, aud it may be applied wherever
offensive odours arc generated, with the
assurance that it will be effective to purify the
air. aud will add to the value of the manure
much more than it costs. It would be well for
every farmer to p.'pare a quantity of this and
have it always on hand.
FOWLS. —The Ohio Farmer says, as the man
ure of the hen house is the best for onions, so
onions, chopped fine and mixed with Indian
meal, is occasionally the best food for chickens.
It should be given once or twice a week, and
w ill prevent gapes and all kiuds of intiaiumatiou
of the throat and eyes.
W KEVlL. —These troublesome pests may be
kept out of grain by using salt. Sprinkle a
little line salt on the bottom and around the
sides of the bin as you fill up. and over the top
when full. Wheat kept in old salt barrels will
never be destroyed by the weevil.
PROFITS OF ORCHARDS. — A distinguished ag
riculturalist, who has one thousand apples-trees,
and intends to set out as many more, says that
if apples will sell at twenty-five cents per
bushel, they are his most profitable crop—and
if they will not sell, they are the cheapest food
be can raise for all kinds of animals.
A quiet exposition of the truth has a
better effect thau a violent attack upon error.
Truth extirpates errors as grass extirpates
weeds, by working its way iuto their place, and
leaving no room to grow.

A Nl> CHERRY PECTORAL.—The fol
-I\. lowing n medies are offered to the public a- the best.
most perfect, which medical science can afford. Aykk'-
Uathartio Pills have been prepared with the utmost
skill which the medical profession of this age possesses,
and their effects show they have virtues which wirpuss
any combination of medicines hitherto known. Other pre
parations do more or lee good ; but this cures such dun
gerous complaints, so quick and so surely, as to prove an
efficacy and a power to uproot disease beyond any thing
which nien have known before. By removing the obstruc
tions of the internal organs and stimulating them into
healthy action, tliey renovate 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 hv one in health they pro
duce but little effect. This is the perfection of medicine.
It is antagonistic to disease, and no more. Tender chil
dren may take them with impunity. If they are sick they
will cure them, if they are well they wili do them no
Give them to some patient who has l>oen prostrated with
bilious complaint; see his hent-up, tottering form straight
en with strength again ; see his long-lost appetite return ;
see his clammy features blossom into health. Give them
to some sufferer whose foul blood has burst out in scrofula
till his skin is covered with sores ; who stands, or sits, or
lies in anguish. He IRIS been drenched inside and out with
exery every potion which ingenuity could suggest. Give
him these Pills, and mark the effect; see the scabs fall
from his body ; see the new, fair -kin that has grown un
der them ; see the late leper that is clean. Give them to
him whose angry humors have planted rheumatism in his
joints and lames ; move him, and he screeches with pain ;
lie too has been soaked through every muscle of his body
with limiiuents and salves : give liiui these Pills to purity
his blood ; they may not cure him, for olas ! there cases
which no mortal power can reach : but mark, lie walks
with crutches now, and now he wulkes 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; seethe 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 is gone. Give her these Pills to stimulate the
vital principle into renewed vigor, to cast out the obstruc
tions, and infuse a new vitality into the blood. Now look
again—the roses blossom on her cheek, and where sorrow
sat, joy bursts from every feature. See the sweet infant
wasted with worms. Its wan. sickly features tell you
without disguise, and painfully distinct, that they are "eat
ing its life away. Its piiicbed-up nose and ears, and rest
lcss sleep tugs, tell the dreadful truth in language which
every mother knows. Give it the Pills in large doses to
sweep thc-e vile parasites from tile 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 yon every day.
Have you the less serions symptoms of these distempers,
they arc the easier cured. Jaundice, t'ostiveness, Head
ache. Sideache, Heartburn. Foul Stomach, Nausea, Pain
in the Bowels, Flatulency. Lo.-s of Appetite, Kiug's Evil,
Neuralgia, Gout, and kindred complaints all arise from the
derangements which these Pills rapidly cure. Take them
per-cveringlv. and under the counsel of a good Physician
if von can ; if not. take them judiciously by sncli "advice
as we give you, and the distressing, dangerous diseases
they cure, which afflict so many millions of the human race,
live east out like the devils of old—they must burrow in
the brutes and in the sea. Price 25 cents per box—s boxes
for f 1.
Through a trial of many years andthmngh every nation
of civilized me, AYER's ('iikkky PECTORAL has been found
to afford more relief and to cure more cases of pulmonary
disease than any other remedy known to mankind. Cases
of apparently settled Consumption have been cured by it.
and thousands of sufferers who were deemed beyond the
reach of human aid have lieen restored to their friends and
usefulness, to sound health and the enjoyments of life, by
tiiis 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 CONS i*ml'TtoN*. He tries everything; but the disease
is gnawing at his vitals, and shows its fatal symptoms
nioic and more over all his fame. He is taking the Cher
ry Pectoral now: it has stopped bis cough and mado his
breathing easy : his -deep is sound at night: his appetite
returns, and with it his strength. Thcdart which pierced
his side is broken. Scarcely any neighborhood can be
found which has not some living trophy like this to shad
ow forth the virtues which have won for the Cherry Pec
toral an imperishable renown. Inlluen/u, Croup, Bron
chitis. Hoarseness, Pleurisy, Whooping Cough, and all ir
ritation-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 find it an idvahiabic pro
tection front the insidious prowler whieh carries off the
parent sheep from many a tiock, the darling lamb from
many a home.

DAVIS' PLATFORM BEE-HIVE.
fTUIE subscriber having been appointed Agent for the
1 counties of Bradford, Sullivan and Lycoming, has the
pleasure of calling the attention of thepnfdic to this useful
invention. The Hive is truly a great improvement on the
old square box : and the facilities it affords for taking nut
the honey are as harmless to the bees, 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. fire 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
uiiquestioiiqhlv ahead of anything hitherto known.
A description of this Hive is inqa S'ilile, without refer
ence to a model, but an examination will satisfy any one
of its advantages. For sale, Town and Individual Rights,
with books, bill of feed, Ac., giving full directions for ma
king the Hive, and managing the Bees.

DIL lIALSEYS' FOREST WINE.—The
discovery of the FOREST XVINE is the greatest bles

of which does more good, and go. -s further in the cure of
Disease, than ton bottles of any S.irsapaiilla in li-e, and
warranted to cure without an unpleasant or weakening
The method by which all Sarssaparillis. and other simi
lar medicines are prepared, is by boitingthe Bootsof plants
to obtain the extracts. Their me.li inal virtues are thus
principally evaporated and destroyed.
It is not to he wondered at then, that 10 and even 20
bottles of these Sarsaparillas are sometimes taken without
any iterceptible henelit. Not so with the Forest Wine
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 ot 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 1 have used Dr. Halsey's Forest
Wine 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. 1
confidently recommend it tor the good of others who may
be suffering from similar complaints. It is the best medi
cine with which 1 am acquainted, and those who are afflic

ly on its virtues. E. CI. MUBSEY.

reduced to a low state of Debility. My family physician
advised her to take your Forest Wine. Accordingly 1

A bottle of your Forest Wine and box of Pills, which
I procured of James Carr. (your agent for this place,) has
done wonders for nie. 1 had been 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 lie
eatue almost a skeleton, and had been unable to leave my
room for more than two months; my friends told me I
had the Consumption and despairedof my recovery. I
could not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
I had taken, or my physician, until your Wine and Pills
were procured. The first dose of the Pills brought up from
my stomach, much phlcm and greenish matter, and my
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 tweuty-five pounds
in seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Pills are nighly
valued in this vicinity, and I owe my recovery entirely to
their virtues. " Yours, respectfully,
