Calender of Opentions for Dec. 1858
FARM. —Hard frosts and northern snows are
near at hand, for both of which the thrift}
farmer is about prepared, having his Autumnal
work so done up that lie sleep* sweetly at night
undisturbed by fear of snow before morning,
upon on acre of turnips still uuharvestcd.
The close of the year is an appropriate season
for balancing the accounts of the farm. It is
well to make an inventory each sense 11. Any
permanent improvements should, of course, be
considered as enhancing the value ot the farm
and placed to its credit. Live stock, I ay, gra 11
and other provisions on hand should be Miiuincii
up, the outstanding debts taken account of, by
comparing the statement with the previous
year, one can readily conclude whether lie makes
his farming operations pay.
If the merchant takes an exact account of
stock each year to ascertain his standing, why
should not the farmer? It need take very
little time except a few of the winter evenings
Mature early all your plans for next season,
deciding what fields to plant, what to sow, how
many drains shall be dug, and where young
orchards shall be planted.
Some of the surplus produce may now be
marketed and the groqer's and outstanding ac
counts liquidated. Resolve that during the
coming year you will " pay as-you-go, rather
than rnn up lengthy accounts like those yon
now find it difficult to pay off. Keep a strict
expense and cash account, taking and filing
away receipts, which, besides saving many (lis
putes, and sometimes paying bills twice will
enable you to discover where some of the Av/.<
arc, ami if created by the purchases of tb .se
things you would he better off without, resolve
to stop them at once. Remember that the
apparently small sum of "six cents per day for
drink or tobacco, will, during the next ten years
aimunt to over S3OO, tosay nothing of the time
spent in getting it and the constitution injured
ly its use. Rut moralizing aside, let us look
over the farm, and especially at the.
Buildings for both man and beast, to see
that they are as comfortable as possible If
not already storm proof make them so.
Cattle come for a large of attention now.
Complete fattening the beeves as early as may
he, keep up the flow of milk by giving cows
the remaining pumpkins, turnip and cabbage
tops, with cut feed and Indian meal, or shorts;
supply full feed to young stock that they .suffer
no check, in their growth, have working oxen
sharp shod where the ground is frozen or icy ;
and see that all the stock is sheltered at night
well supplied with water and salt, or salt hay
given them once a week.
Cellars may need additional protection to
keep out frosts.
CHRISTMAS. —May it be a merry one to nil,
and a feast of fat things, in which the are not
Drains may still he made where the ground
is not too wet or frozen.
FF.XCING. —Get material from the woods and
swamps and split a full supply of rails, and
prepare posts against the busy season of next
FODDER. —Do not waste it about the ham,
but run it through a straw or hay cutter and
add some kind of ground feed I'se racks in
the yards to keep it from being trodden under
FOREST LEAVES. —Large quantities of these
arc still blowing about the roadsides and wood
borders. They make excellent bedding ma
nure and hot-ocd materials. Shall a few loads
be secured under cover, before it is too'late?
HOGS. —Complete fattening, those intended
for killing. Keep their pens and yards well
supplied with muck and other manure agents
and absorbents. Have an eye to the increase
of stock, and turn the male among your breed
ing sows, if early pigs are wanted.
HORSES AND MCJ.ES. —With grain feed, give
a portion of carrots, and see that their stalls
nro warm and well bedded at night Ventilate
their stables and use absorbents or deodorizers
to take np the gasses which are unhealthy to
breathe but valuable when fixed in the compost
heap. Keep horses well shod.
ICE HOUSES. —FiII with the first firm, thick
ice, which is usually the best of the bens n
Houses may still be built.
MANURES.—Push the manufacture of these
at this saason. Use muck, loain, leaves and
straw to absorb nil the liquids of the yards
and stable. Cart a large heap of muck from
the swamp to the stables for winter use. A
free bedding of it tinder horses to absorb the
nriue, will make twice as much manure as would
bo saved where all the liquids were allowed to
run to waste, with no absorbent.
Flowing during open weather may still be
continued on clayey soils when sufficiently dry.
POULTRY. —Give warm quarters, plenty of
food and drink, with gravel, lime and meat,
and you may expect eggs in the winter season.
Clean roots often, barreling the contents for
an excellent home-made guano.
Schools arc now in session in multidistricts.
Let the children attend as steadily as pos
sible, and show them, by frequent visits, that
yon take a lively interest in their success.
SHEEP. —Provide racks for, and feed under
cover during storms, Keep horned cattle and
horses from them. Give turnips or carrots,
instead of all dry feed. See that they are sup
plied with salt, and provided with a good buck
of an improved breed, if possible.
TOOLS. —Look over, during the stormy days
of this month, and if any need repairing you
can better afford the time now than when they
are wanted for use at a busy season New
ones of domestic manufacture, such as harrows,
ox yokes, hows, hoe, fork and ax handles, wood
sleds, Ac., may also he made. Don't let a
snow storm bury the plow in one place, harrow
in another, the ox-yokes here, and chains, axes,
Ac., somewhat ebe Tliey should he housed
TURNIPS. —Harvest, any still in the ground
Give pits an additional covering and close the
ventilators at night if there is danger of freez
WATER PIPES AND PIMPS. —See that they
are sufficiently protected from frosts.
WINTER GRAIN. --Allow nothing to graze
upon the fields duriug the present month.—
Water should not be allowed to stand iu little
ponds upon them.
WOOD. —-Commence early to get up the winter
supply. At the North where Abundance of
sr.ow falls it is better to cnt and draw together
as much as possible before the deep winter
snows fall. Ktrly snows usually make the best
sledding to draw it home upon. A year's sup
ply should be brought to the house, cut nud
stored under cover some time during the winter,
the earlier the better.
ORCHARD AND NURSERY. —There is compara
tively little to do in the Orchard and Nursery
the present month. In the orchard, nnless dis
lodged last month search out the borers which

Philadelphia, on the Camden and Atlantic railroad. New
Jersey. An old estate has recently been opened for sale,
ami tiie first division of 10.000 acres divided up into farms
of twenty acres and upwards. The soil is of the best quali
ty (or the production of fruits, grains, Ac. The price is
sls to S2O per acre, payable in easy quarter yearly instal
ments, within a term of four years, with interest. The j
terms are made easy, in order to insure the rapid im- j
provement of the land, by enabling every industrious man
to buy a farm. It is now being extensively improved by
good roads, and some of the best citizens from New Eng- I
land and the Middle States are erecting large improve
ments. It is a scene of the greatest improvement out of I
Philadelphia. Seventy-live houses have been built in four ;
months. Practical farmers and business men from the
length and breadth of the Union are settling there. It
is an important business place, on account of its being i
in the midst of a great market. Every article raised up- j
on this land finds an immediate sale. The water is ex- j
eel lent, and no such thing as fever is known.
The soil is a sandy or clay loam, with a clay bottom
and retentive of manures. It is free of stones and easily
worked. It abounds largely in the phosphates, and such
is its fertility that from the crops produced both upon
this land and the large area adjoining under cultivation,
it will he found not to he excelled anywhere in the pro
duction of crops most adapted to its market.
The reader may be well aware that the earliest and the
best fruits and vegetables come from New Jersey, which
are annually exported to the amount of millions of dol
lars. The land, besides being accessible in every way for
fertilizers, lias an abundant supply of the best quality ot
Lumber and bnihling materials can be had on the spot
at a cheap price, from the miils. Other mills are now
being opened, and brickyards being started on the ground.

venience for one hundred dollars. On account of the ex
tensive emigration, this is the best course to in order to
get a place to live in at first. Carpenters and builders
are on hand to put up houses on tlie best terms.
In settling here the emigrant has many advantages
He is within a few hours' ride of the great cities in the
Middle States and New England : he is near his old friends
and associations ; he is in a settled country, where every
improvement and comfort of civilization is at hand; he
is in a healthy place, and is not subject to the certainty
of losing the greater part of his family and his own health
