Calendar ox Operations for Sept. 1359.
Farm.—The A<^rifuiilirl year nsy be said
to commence ii;is month. New plan? are to
be laid and preparations made for the coming
eeascn. Fart of the seed, the wheat or.d rje,
are to be *'sou in hope," and fields intended
for next year's planting to be cleand ot sur
face stone, diaincd, the stumps removt d, and
other necessary preparations made. For drain
ing especially, the time is propitious. The
fieds are now mostly clear, there is compara
tive lesiure where wheat is not extensively sow n,
but little rain will interfere with out-door op
erations, and the heat of Summer no longer
oppresses. Now too, is the time for storing
the magazine with abundance of the farmer's
ammunition—manure. " Well I egun is half
done," —begiu at the manure heap, and you
may expect to end well with next year's harvest.
Boundary and other |ermane;it fences may now
be erected, let them be put up as near as possi
ble, for all time.
Agricultural exhibitions arc bring held in
most counties, and claim the attention of in
teligent cultivators. Visit them and take
specimens of your best crops to increase the at
tractions. Premiums are secondary considera
tions but premium crops and stock pay the
Barns and Hovels.— If some of the stock
went through the last Winter unsheltered, re
solve that it shall be the last Winter. Pre
pare to erect additional buildings early.
Beans will need pulling and drying. When
properly cured, the haulm or straw, makes
good sheep food.
Beeves. —Begin to give additional feed to
animals intended for beef. A little extia food
now, will save many bushels of corn iu cold
Buckwheat will need cutting. It cures,
handles, ami thresh* s best when cradled and
bound. It should not get so ripe as to shell out
badly iu the field. Thresh as fast as caittd
Butter and Cheese making are supposed to
be going on briskly in-doors. September and
October are the best mouths for laying down
butter for Winter use.
Cattle.—The cows are now beginning to
sbriuk in milk, and require some of the soiling
crop to keep up a fuil supply. The garden
will furnish turnip and beet tops, cabbage
trimmings, corn stalks, etc., which should be
fed out tothe cattle. Give the animals a frequent
change of pasture, turning them upon the tine
rowen crop where it is not to be gathered.
Cellars will soon be wanted for storing vog
tables and fruits. Let them be well cleansed,
and properly regulated. There is much sav
ing in arranging them conveniently.
Coru.— Select the earliest, most prolific,and
best for seed, tracing up by a few husks and
hanging in the loft or granary. Cut and shock
as soou as ripe, or upon the first severe frost.
The grain will be heavier, and the fodder much
better than when exposed uncut iu the field to
alternate storms and sun, frost and heat.
Cisterns.—lf these conveniences for hot It
house and barn were not built as directed last
mouth, the present is a suitable time. WeiL
may also be dug.
Eggs.— Now that the fowls arc laying inor
than are wanted in the family and the market
price is low, put away a good supply lor Win
ter. We have invariably had good success
with them, when packed iu common salt.
Fences should be carefully watched now that
pasture feed is short and the corn field looks
Forests—Continue to cut away, those intend
ed to reclaim for til luge.
Grain.—Thresh early, especially if stacked
in the field where rats, mice, squirrels, and
crows feed upon it. See that granaries are in
and proptr order. Make them proof agaiust rats
Hedge Rows and Bushes—Clean up any al
lowed to grow till now.
Hemp and Flax.—Full, and spread for rot
Hogs.—Separate those to be killed this
season, and give them extra feed. They should
be in first-rate condit on when the ordinary
fattening season commeuct s. Cook the food
rather than feed it out in a raw state. They
are capable of making much manure.
Manure—Among the other labors do not
neglect the manure yards and heaps. Dig all
the muck possible befote the swamps arc filled
with water.
Pastures need examining lo see that the feed
is sufficient. A frequent change is desirable
Flow, for rye and wheat, unless it was
done last month. Turn the soil over Sto 10
inches deep
'Potatoes.—Unless for present market, or to
clear the ground for Winter grain, it is usually
better to leave potatoes iu the giouud until
I'onl ry may generally run at large, dur
ing this month without injury, and will lay the
belter for their freedom.
Root crops are growing rapidly this month
Keep the ground well stirred wirh the cultiva
tor and horse or hand hoe, and suffer no weeds
to grow in the rows.
Rye.—Sow, if not done last month. See
that the seed is well cleansed. A strong brine
will float any oats and chess among the seed
and they may lie skimmed off.
Sheep require the same care as last month.
As cold wheather approaches get them iugood
flesh for Winter.
Soiling Crops.—Cut and feed as wanted.—
Any remaining should be harvested and cured
while the weaither is still favorable for doing
Sugar Cane for Grinding should be cut, or
begun upon ul latest, as soon as the frost has
killed the foliage, which will be, in some locali
ties. There will be a large quantity to manufac
ture this season. The grinding and boiling
should follow close upon the cutting. Roil iu
shallow pans with a free circulation of uir
around them.
Timothy—sow with wheat and rye, or by
Itself for a future grass crop.
Turnips—Thin late sowings, feed early ones
and keep all well hoed. Sow more of the quick
growing varieties on vacant ground.
Wheat should now be put iu as early as may
bo, on deeply plowed und finally pulverized sod
that has received a <_ r ood coating of manure.
Many complaints of Winterkill are owing to
late sowing. The growth is not sufficient to
protect the roots before Winter sets in.—
Where it cau be ('one, use the diill iu sowing.
Instead of relating upon the man who culls

acres of productive s il lias been divided into Farms of
various sizes to suit the jmrch lser. A population of some
Fifteen Hundred, from various parts ol the middle States
and Mew England have settled there the past year, im
proved their places, and raised excellent ci p*. The
price of the land is at the low sum of from sls to S2O
per acre, the soil is of the be t quality for the production

The place is perfectly secure from frosts—the destructive
enemy of the farmer. Crops of grain, grass and iruit are
now growing and can he seen. By examining the place
it-elf, a cornet judgment can lie formed ot the produc

the rapid improvement of the land, which is only sold lor
actual inipro ement The result lias been, that within the
past year, some three hundred house* have been erected,
two mills, one steam, four stores, some forty vinyard and

The Market, as the reader may perceive from its loca

than double the price than the West. It is known that
the earliest and best fruits and vegetabn s in this latitude
come from New Jer-c-y, and arc annually exported to the
extent of millions.
In locating here, the settler has many advantages. He
is within a !• w hours ride of the great cities ot New Eng

every article can be procured in the place, good carpen

buddings and improvements can be made cheaper.
The reader will at once be struck with the advantages
here presented, and a-k himself why the property li is not

in the market; and iinlc-s these statements were correct,
no one would be inc ted t > examine the land before pur

than any other made by Machinery. The two threads are
double looped into each other, and firmly tied and knot

stitch ever made.
sth. They sew with cotton, linen and silk thread equal

tith. They finish their work. There is no occasion to
fasten the thread at either end of the seam, as is required
by olher shuttle stitching machines.
7th. Every Machine is made to run by hand or foot
