How to Wake Good Eutttr.
In llio Corning Journal we find :v lettei
fr< tn the linn. Andrew Dickinson, of&tcuhcii.
which contains much valuable information 01
the process of making butter. Mr. Dickinson
is a thorough practical farmer, and his opinion.*
und suggestions are of more than ordinate
value. The following is his 'ettcr: —
I will endeavor to give the general outlines,
the essential leading principlesjwithout attempt
ing to give all the exact details, as it would
be a much easier ta.-k to teach a man to make
a watch, than how to make the first quality
of butter ; as it is the most sensitive, it is
the most liable to injury, of all eatables extract
ed from the vegetable kingdom. The first
important thing for making butter is the cow-
Without stopping to give a full description for
selecting she must give good rich milk, as first
quality of butter cannot be made from poor,
pale milk, as pale milk lacks the essential
quality of good butter.
The idea of coloring butter with anything
after it is made, is as absurd as would be the
painting of rye bread to make it white, with
the expectation of changing its flavor, Butter
is so sensitive, it partakes of everything that
can effect it, that it comes in contact with ;
as onions, carrots, parsnips, turnips, fish, or
anything else that would make it uypalatahle,
either in the butter or the milk churning. Not
only so, but the butter partakes of everything
the cow eats or drinks, and the longer it
stands after being made, the more perceptible
will the unpalatable things on which she fed
make themselves manifest. By this it will
be seen that the most important thing for first
quality butter, is the food for the cow. Neither
frotn roots of any sort or kind, nor grain of any
description, can first quality butter he extract
ed. It must be from something that imparls
a sweeter and liner flavor, and from nothing
growing in this country that I know, except
timothy, white clover, blue grass, red top and
foul meadow, can fir-t quality of butter be
made, that will stand the test so as to remain
sweet until the winter or spring after it is made
and each of these grasses must have been
sowed or-seeded down sufficiently long and so
cared for as to have a soil thick enough to
make it produce a fine solid grass, to make
it a perfect dairy pasture, though inanv other
grasses will make good butter for immediate
use, but not to keep. The cow, too, must be
well wintered, however good she my have
been to make good butter, because if poor, her
milk will also be poor and white, and of course
the butter ditto. Your correspondent says.
" If von had seen, as I have done, the farmers
wives and daughters with tears in their eyes,
when told that the product of their summer's
labor, as shown in their butter, was a poor
aitiele," &c\, &c. For none of these things
are the dairy women in the least resposible, and
no one else but the dairy man, or provider of
the cows food ; jet in this, as in many, very
many instances, the wrong persons arc held
accountable for things over which they have
no control. The inanfacturing is an essential
part of the business, yet the neglect of any of
the above mentioned requirements is fatal to
a first rate dairy for winter use.
The cow must be looked efter as soon as
she comes in, and milked sufficiently after to
prevent her bag from becoming feverish and
caking, as one milking from a feverish cow
would spoil a whole churning, and that would
spoil a whole firkin in which it was packed,
though it might not be percceptible for imme
diate use, and and none but the skilful butter
maker would perceive it in the churning of the
butter. Such milk froths and foams, and when
it docs this as well as from other causes, it is
always safest to sell it for immediate use, or
pack it separately in a firkin to sell for what
it will bring. The churn should be as nearly
straight up and down as possible, as the dash
should stir all the milk every stroke it makes,
so that the butter in the churn should all
come at the same time. If the milk is too
cold, the only safe way to warm it is to place
a pail of milk in a large boiler of warm water
to bring it to the exact temperature, which i
about 55 deg. to 00 dcg.,—a few degrees war
mer in cold than in warm weather. As soon
as the butter has come and gathered, take it
immediately from the churn in its warm state,
and put in a large wooden bowl, which is the
best vessel for the purpose ; than put in cold,
soft water ; then continence pulling the butter
over with the ladle in so gentle and careful a
a manner as not to affect the grain,
for as sure as that is injured at the washing or
working, the butter becomes oily and can
never be reclaimed. Every particle of milk
must be washed out, and then seasoned with
the best of Liverpool salt. Set the howl
away until the next day, and when sufficiently
cool, work the mass thorughlv, but not so as
to affect the grain, and on the third day pack
it away if it has assumed the right color. Ex
amine if well before packing and be sure there
is no milky water runs from it, for as sure as
it is packed with the least drop in the butter,
you will hear from it the next March or Apri'.
The sooner you dispose of unwashed butter !
the better, as a little in Ik would not harm it j
much for immediate use.
If your spring or well water is hard, I should
advise saving the ice from river or stream,
though the water is hard, as the lime never
congeals with the ice. Save rain water, and
then with ice you will have soft water sufficien
tly cool to wash your butter, without which no
mau or woman can get the milk without injur
ing the grain, so that the injurious effects of
the lime water will not exhibit itself in five or
six months. Soft water is as indispensable ♦(>
wash butter as fine linen. From all this Ido
r.ot wish to be understand that washing butter
is positively necessary if it be used within a few

WEAVING CALVES. —The best mode of wean
ing is to keep the calves in the barn on hay.
And whether they are permitted to suck the
cow three days or three months, they should
not be turned out to grass, provided you can
procure good hay. Calves will readily eat
good fine hay when they are two or three
weeks old, but they will not then eat grass
enough to keep a grasshopper alive.
We often see young calves tethered out in
gardens and on headlands where the richest
clover grows—yet they always seem pining for
something to eat. And when they have slops
given them and all manner of stuffing they
look poor and emaciated
One reason is, the tlies pester them exceed
ingly when out in the open day light, but in a
burn properly c'o;ed the flies are seldom seen.
