Decay in Fruit Trees,
W'r have often heard the practice recom
mended of driving nails into decaying fruit
trees, to restore their vigor. Hot we have never
seen tile remit set forth so Strikingly as in the
following from the Southern Pf-inter ;
A fingnlar fact, and one worthy of being
recorded, was mentioned to us a few days since
l>y Mr. Alexander, Duke of Alhennarle. He
stated, that whilst at a neighbors, his ntten
tion wn called to a peach orchard, every free
in which had been totally destroyed by the
ravages of the worm, with the exception of
three, and these were the tno.st thrifty and
flourishing peach trees he ever saw. The only
cause of their superiority known to his host,
was an experiment made in consequence of ob
servation that those parts of worm eaten tim
ber into which nails were driven*were general
ly sound. When his trees were about a year
old, he had selected three of them and driven
a ten penny nail through the body, as near
the ground as possible ; whilst the balance of
his orchard had gradually failed and finally
yielded entirely to the ravages of the worms :
these three trees selected at random, treated
precisely in the same manner, with the excep
tion of the nailing, had always been vigorous
and healthy, furnishing hiin at that period with
the greatest profusion of the most luscious fruit.
It is supposed that the salt of iron afforded by
the nau, is offensive to the worm whilst it is
harmless, or perhaps even beneficial to the
A chemical writer opon this subject, says ;
" The oxydation or rusting of the iron by the
Bap evolves ammonia, which, as the sap rises,
will of course impregnate every part of the fo
liage, and prove too severe a do*c for the de
licate palate of intruding insects.'' This writer
recommends driving half a dozen nails into the
trunk. Several experiments of this kind have
MANAGEMENT or THE BARN. — Let the ut
most neatness be observed in the management
of the barn. No more hay nor fodder should
be thrown on the floor at once, than is requi
site to sujply one feed. Bv throwing large
quantities from the mows or scaffolding, there
i- an unavoidable loss from the drying of the
fibre which renders it less palatable to the ani
mals as well as less nutritious. Sweeping the
floor da iy promotes cleanliness and conduces
to the health and consequently to the comfort
of animals. The " tic ups," and " stanches"
as well as the manger, cribs, Ac.,should lie dai
ly cleared out and frequently washed. An oc
casional white washing should be given to the
ceiling partitions ; its sanitary effects arc well
known, and of a nature too indisputably ob
vious to admit of doubt. Vermin rarely infest
barns or animals treated in this way. The
floors of all tie ups can thoioughly be cleans
ed by the diffusion of water, and which do not
become impregnated with the ammonincal mat
ter contained in the urine, and the foetid ani
mal matter of the excrement.
SALT ON LAND.— An excess of salt upon
land will kill all vegetation for the first year
except asparagus, but the land will afterwards
be found very productive. In Kngiaud salt is
recognized hj Government us a manure of such
value that it passes turnpikes toll free, and it
is used by farmers at high prices Here it is
used to throw away by pork packers,and I have
bought it for four cents a bushel, fcjalt upon
pastures will improve them. It may be used
from five to fifteen bushels per acre. It al
ways does best on land that has been limed. I
would use five or ten bushels per acre on old
pastures. It is useful in all compost. It is
largely used upon cabbage gardens near this
eit v, if you slack three bushels of lime with the
solution of one bushel of salt, it is the best
thing ever used to decompose mulch. It is
also excellent upon the roots of peach trees.
Guano is much more valuable when treated
with carbon of sulphuric acid. 11 makes the
guano fine, so that all the lumps can be divided
and mixed with the super-phosphate.— Prof
THE VIOLET.— This sweet little flower is an
universal lavorite. The ordorata and its va
rieties are most valued, but they cannot he had
in perfection unless a good deal of genius is
bestowed on them. Slugs are very destruc
live to the violet, devouring the flower as much
before as after they are in bloom. Where the
flowers are much in request—when grown near
cities—beds arc made on purpose for them,
eoniposed of a layer of coal ashes 011 the bot
tom,covered with a compost of peat-earth, loam
decayed dressing from the stable.} and sand,
ten inches thick. On this, young runners are
to be planted, six inches apart, and carefully
attended to. The sweet scented violet should
not be wanting in any collection of plan's, on
account of its fragrance and early appearance.
A single flower will perfume a large room The
flowers appear in April, and continue for a
considerable period of time. There arc the
single white and single bine, and the double
blue and white varieties. The double sorts are
most desirable, and may be rapidly multiplied
by division of the plants.
FATTENING HOGS.— When your hogs arc at
first taken up for fattening they should receive
two or three doses of flour of sulphur, and as
many of copperas, say a table spoonful at a
dose, to be given in messes ot or meal,
made into slop at intervals of a dav apart.—
Their food for the first two or three Leeks
should lie pumpkins, apples and roots, or other
vegetables which should be boiled or steamed
and made into messes with bran or meal, the
latter should be increased from day to day so
that when they come to have corn, or meal al
together, the change of diet may not he injuri
ously felt by them.
In connection with the subject of feeding
grain, we would remind our readers that ground
com meal cooked will go .10 per cent, farther
in fattening hogs than will raw grain whole,
nnd the whole grain when boiled, will go 10 or
20 per cent, farther than when not boiled.
During the entire period of fattening, the
hogs should be regularly supplied with charcoal,
ashes, rotten icoad, and silt.
The better animals arc fed, and the better
they arc kept, the tnore profitable they are.
It is said that small twigs of cedar,choppdd
fine and mixed with their grain, will cure a
rough in horses, and that this ha 9 been used
with complete sueeeT.
