Important Facts in Butter-Making.
To !\|| Editoi• of The New York Tribune.
1" I have before me vonr paper of the
27th Oct., which contains a communication
from a farmer of Wheatland, Mon
roe oiiutv. iti w itch i • ici .lev o- o ti_.st oy
at Tine !-.i oown *-y myself
t the .State Fair, iu Elmira, that no first
quality of butter can be made on limestone
land where the water with which the butter is
washed is hard.
Your eorresjondpnt seems anxious that a
trial should be made this Fall, after the 27th
"November, as well as in June as in August
next. I here desire to lay down what I re
gard as another truism, that there never was,
and never ran be, one pound of first quality
butter made after a heavy frost has killed the
grass —which in this region is as early as the
27th of October. The grass becomes insipid
and bitter, and butter partakes of the flavor
of the food on which the cow feeds, for sweet
ness, richness, and solidity, in the same ratio
as cows which feed partly on garlics, wild
onions and rutabagas, afford butter unfit for
table use ; and with the same result as to keej>-
ing. The longer this kind of butter is kept
the more offensive it becomes; while butter
made when the cow gets nothing but the sweet
high-flavored grasses will improve, if well
manufactured, until it is ripe, which will be in
from three to four months.
I am rather inclined to think that your cor
respondent is not a good butter-maker for a
hard water country. I fancy his wife is the
butter-maker, and if he will take the trouble
to inquire, she will inform him that no first
quality of butter can be made either in Nov.
or August. While the one is too cold with
frost-bitten grass, the other is quite too warn;
and without ice it is impossible to make first
quality butter. And even with ice, I believe
I hazard nothing iu saying it is so difficult a
task that a package containing 100 pouuds
has never been found in the market.
Now if hard and soft water lands are to
have a fair test, so as to decide which is best
adapted to making first quality butter, the
trial certainly shonld take place at the season
when first quality butter can be made. May
and September are the two best montlis in
this latitude, with part of June, something
depending on the season.
In this communication it is not my purpose
to say whether I believe that grasses as well
adapted to the production of first quality but
do not grow on hard water land as on soft,
but 1 do mean that it is just as indispensably
necessary to have soft water to wash the milk
from butter, as it is to have soft water to wash
fine linen, or to water rot flax to make the
hurl soft, or to water plants, Ry this I do
wish to be understood as saying that hard wa
ter lands are not best for some crops, or even
that hard water is not better for some purpo
ses. Eggs may be kept for years in lime-wa
ter properly prepared, which would spoil iu
soft water in twenty days.
And it is by no meaus invariable that in a
lime-stone country the springs or streams are
of hard water, though usually they are. In
some localities they are just as soft as the rain
that falls from the clouds, and which was ab
sorbed within a mile distant, from some hard
water lake, or pool, or the ocean itself.
It may be said that many of the best but
ter- makers do not wash their butter. Of this
fact I am quite well aware, and iu the vicinity
of Philadelphia, where they make as good but
ter for immediate use as anywhere, they never
wash their butter, nor do I believe that it
would be improved for immediate use there or
here, by washing : but I do mean to say, and
on tliis point I wish to be distinctly under
stood. that to work butter sufficiently to sepe
ratc every particle of milk, so that it will keep
a year, wouid destroy the grain and render it
oil-. A ' r keep" a fe* U wo'M .ybi
t:t FIT. B. ff. -t, .I . .. . . ■ t 5'.1,,.A! Ofc
t • • e : yin .oua alt that effect
The plan which your correspondent propo
ses, at your suggestion, to test the question, is
practicable and fair, and should be tried. I
will see that some butter made from soft w:-
ter land by a fair test is forwarded in March
or April, 1857, as the butter cauuot be made
Meantime I think I ran suggest a plan
whereby butter makers on hard water land, if
skeptics, eau satisfy themselves fairly. In
May, when grass is pood, work oue crock,
without washing, in your best manner; then
take rain water and wash, as soon as your
churning is completed, all the milk from the
butter. Re careful in washing to pull the but
ter over with a ladle so as not to affect the
grain ; then put it away in some sweet, cool
place, out of the reach of any bad influence
of which it can partake, until it has assumed
its proper color ; then work it over by hand
and lay it down iu your crock ; and after it is
laid down the same care must be taken to keep
it through the season. A common farm-cel
lar, with meats, fish, and vegetables, would
spoil in sixty days the best package of butter
ever made. Then iu like manner, or iu your
own way, wash another with water that you
know to be hard, as sonic springs that are
hard in dry weather iu the rainy seasons arc
nearly soft ; lay down aud keep both parcels
ns near alike as possible, without salt, as but
ter does not require salt to preserve it any
more than lard does. Salt is only necessary
for the purpose of flavoring anything that is
not palatable. Salt can be worked in at ?ny
time. Then pursue the same course with three
more packages salted with Liverpool salt, and
observe the result. You will probably be as
well satisfied as I am that hard water injures
butter. A. D. DICKINSON.

To MARK FRUIT PITS.—No under crust
shonld be.made to apple or any fruit pie. It
is always heavy and not fit to eat. Place a
narrow riin of paste around the edge of the
plate , and fill with the fruit, either raw or
stewed, and cover it. The juices will be re
tained much better, and it will save a sight of
batter and flour, which is no trifling conside
ration iu these days, aud what is of more con
sequence, save fiysficpaM, which costs more.
After cutting they arc taken out with a spoon.
To KEEP MILK SWEET.—A ROYD, a eor
rcsjiondent, informs us that he has practised a
peculiar method with much success, preserv
ing milk sweet iu the pans. It simply consists
in placing a piece of new hammered iron, or
three twelve penny nails in each tin pan pre-
T'ously, and thou pouring the warm milk ou
tli<*in. H" believes that electricity has some
thing to do with producing ihc result —.V"Y

BY USING THE GERMAN CHEMI
caI Erosive Soaji. Made from a German process,
and, as believed, not known to any other manufacturer
in the United States. The proprietors having tested this
article in various ways during the past six lu. utlis, now
offer it to the public as possessing the following advan
tages over other washing soaps :
Ist. It may he used equally well with hard or soft wa
2.d Tt requires but half the quantity required of other
soap to accomplish the same object.
3d. Clothes need no boiling and but little rubbing,
(most articles none,) thus avoiding their w ear upon a
4th. It requires less than one half the time and labor to
do the washing of a family, that it requires with the best
family soap ; does not Injure the fabric and tends to set
sth. For cleaning Paints, and removing Grease Tar
and Printer's Ink, It io unsurpassed.
fith. One pound will go as far. for any use, a* 3 pounds
of common rosin soap, or 2 pound* of best family soap
Machinists, Printers and Painters will find it an invalua
ble article for washing hands—as It docs not chap but
softens the skin.
