The ntitnruii is lite l>cst time ftt* draining.
"Waste and useless ground can now lie drained,
which, if left until the spring, would be una
voidable for another year. Manv have been
astonished at their own success in this work.
Two years since a farmer near this city drained
an ugly swamp, thinking it might answer for
willows the following spring but failing to
obtain cuttings, the land became so dry the
last of May, he was induced ♦< try corn, and
raised an excellent crop. Digging stumps,
grading and all out-door jobs of this nature can
done now better than at any other season.—
Our springs are short, unsettled, and generally
very unpleasant. Oar autumns are glorious
all foreign travellers agree that, the beauty
of the American autumn is unequalled. Let
it be well improved.
Hogs for early killing should now nccive
attention, and be put on full rations. This
matter is delayed generally too long, The fine
weather in the fall is the very bci-t time fur
making pork cheap. It will cost less to man
ufacture it now than during the cold weather
of early winter, when the pigs will have all
they cau do to keep warm.
This is the best time for sowing timothy,
nnd it is a question worthy of consideration,
whether the growing of timothy and clover
seed might not be made profitable in the " (Jen
esee country," now that our great staple,
wheat, has failed.
.Manure is much more easily made in the
fall and winter than in the warm weather of
Fll miner, and the quality is better. Decompo
sition takes place more slowly and irregularly,
and the valuable gasscs are more easily ob
tained. Then there is less danger of loss by
burning or becoming lire-tanged, as this
burning is generally termed. Muck Irom the
swamps, the remains old straw stacks, nil re
fuse and coarse stuff that cannot be made
available for feed, should be gathered together,
with the view of turning it into manure by
spring. Many fanners in some sections of our
country spend hundreds of dollars for guano,
and other fertilizers, that they might save if
they would give more attention to making ma
nure at home. In these parts, little guano is
used, but many crops are starved down to half
their natural proportions for want of proper
Above all tilings, save fodder. Let noth
ing be wasted that will help the stock through
the winter. Don't sell anything in the fall
that you may have to buy back again in the
spring at double the price you obtained for it.
If you have too much stock for your feed, pro
cure more at once, or sell off part of the stock.
A small number well fed will be more profita
ble than a large number badly provided for.
During the first part of the winter feed well
but not lavishly, and improve as the spring
approaches.— Rural yew Yorker.
OCTOBER.— Work to be Done. —Make com
post industriously ; use those made in August
on your clayey lands, ridging and backfurrow
ing them, running the sub-soil plough in the
bottom of the open furrows. By this system
the manures will occupy the centre of the
riilges, and thus their grasses during decompo
sition will be absorbed, instead of passing off in
the atmosphere. The sub-soiling between
ridges will prevent the ridges from compact
ing by rains, and the sub-soil will be rendered
fit for sustaining plants another year from re
ceiving the atmosphere and the carbonic acid
and ammonia carried in by the rains. The
frequent freezings and thawings during winter
will render the ridges pulverulent by spring,
and suitable for early culture. Do not plow
sandy lands in the fall.
Rake up leaves from the woods as they fall,
and put them in the compost heaps. Cart
headlands to the manure shed. Have a good
supply of materials suitable for bedding, near
the s:tab!es. Do not attempt to fatten more cat
tle than you can fully supply with food, or they
will not flourish well even if fully supplied.—
Young cattle cannot be brought up in flesh at
an outlay which will pay, if neglected early.
Skin old woods of the surface soil, and rc
place half its value as manure with iiiue and
ftshc3 in the woods, and both farm and wood
land will gain in the exchange. (Jet all the
night-soil you can, and mix it with head-land,
Ac., for the compost heaps. Wet the compost
heaps with salt lye from the soap boiler's, if
you can get it. Use half a bushel of refuse
salt to every cord of compost, to prevent the
re-germination of weeds, grubs, Ac. Do not
forget that corn is more valuable when chang
ed to fat, than when found in the hog manure ;
and to secure the first condition, cook it before
feeding to hogs, or your manure will lie very
rich, at too high a cost. Mr. Ellsworth Ims
satisfactorially proved, that one pound of cook
ed corn, will make more pork than two pounds
fed in the raw state.
WINTER ONIONS AND LETTFCE. —You like
onions, either ns salad or otherwise? Would
you like to have tliern fresh very early in the
Spring, before they could grow after Spring
planting ? "Of course I would.'' Very well
then perhaps we can help you to them. Se
lect a good spot of ground, prepare it well, and
make one lied of onions about the 10th of Au
gust. Male another about the Ist of Septem
ber. Sow the seed quite thick. Let them
grow till Winter, keep the beds five from weeds
and thinning them out a very lit tic. When
Winter comes, cover them over with a good
coat of coarse litter. Further south, the cov
ering may be lighter. You may thus have
the onions for use to March or next year.—
TKey will be excellent then, if you like onions.
Sow a bed of lettuce in the same way, at
the same time or latter, and protect in the
same manner, and you have that luxury also
very early in Spring. Try both of these oper
ations and yoti will probably th ink us next
Spring for these hints. American Agi icuturisl.
A NEW KIND OF FORAGE. — Prince Sell art zen
berg has lately made successful experiments in
some of his farms for converting the leaves of
the ash tree into forage for cows. About 50
lbs., of the leaves were, in October last, ar
ranged in a tub with alternative layers of salt,
and kept covered until the beginning of March
when they were taken out, mixed with chop
ped rye-straw, and given to the cows. This
new food appeared so palatable to them, that
they would select the leaves with the greatest
avidity, leaving the straw untouched. The
leaves were then given to them without any
mixture, and were eaten with the same rel

Purgative Medicine i-not more or less required, and much
sickness and suffering might be prevented, if a harmless
hut effectual Cathartic were more freely used. No per
son can feci well while a costive habit of body prevails :
besides it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases,
which might have been avoided bv the timely and judi
cious use of a good purgative. Tlii-is alike true of Colds,
Feverish symptoms, and Billions derangements. They
all tend to become or produce the deep seated and for
midable distempers which load the hearses all over the
laud. Hence a reliable family physic is of the first im
portance to the public health, and this Pill has been per
fected with consummate -kill to meet, that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Professors,
and Patients, has shown'results surpassing anything
hrtlierto known of any medicine. Cures have been ef
fected beyond belief, were they not substantiated by per
sons of such exalted positions and character as to forbid
the suspicion of untruth.
Among the eminent gentlemen who have testified in
favor of these Pills, we may mention :
Pont. A. A. HAYES, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorser! by the—
Hon. EDWARD EVERETT, Senator of the United
ROBERT C. WIXTHROP, Ex-Speaker of the House of

Cite, endorsed by
lion. W. L. MARCY, Secretary of State.
WM. B. ASTOR, the richest man in America.
S. KELAXD & Co., Proprietors of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others.
Did space permit-, we ronlrl give many hundred certi
ficates from all parts where the Pills have been used, but
evidence even more convincing than the experience of
eminent public men. is found in their effects upon trial.
These Pills, the result of long investigation and study,
are offered to the public as the best and most complete
which the present state of medical science can afford.—
They are compounded not of the drugs themselves, but of
the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies extract
ed by Chemical process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together in such a manner as to insure the best results.
This system of composition for medicines has been found
in Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a more ef
ficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any
process. The reason is perfectly obvions. While by the
old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened with
j more or less of acrimonious and injurious qualities, by
this each individual virtue only that is desired for t.lie cu
rative effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious
qualities of each substance employed are left behind, the
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self
evident the effects should prove as they have proved,
more purely remedial, and the Pills a more powerful an
tidote to disease than any other medicine known to the
As it is frequently expedient that many medicines
should be taken under the counsel of an attending Physi
cian, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy
without knowing its composition, l'have suppled the ac
curate Formula- by which both my Pectoral and Pills are
made, to the whole body of Practitioners in the United
.State's ami British American Provinces. If however there
should be any one who has not received them, they will
be forwarded by mail to his request.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how few
would be takeu ii their composition was known ! Their
life consists in their mystery. I have no mysteries.
> The composition of my preparations is laid open to all
men, and all who are competent to judge on the subject
freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic
merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scienti
fic men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were
known. Many eminent Physicians have declared the
same thing of iny Pills, and even niore confidently, and
are willing to certify that their anticipations were more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the inter
nal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it into heal
thy action—remove the obstruct ions of the stomach .bow
els, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their
irregular act ion to health, and by correcting, wherever
they exist, such derangements as are the first origin of
