Poor iajplemerts and poor farming generally
go together. I never have yet seen a welJuul-j
tivateii farm, on which the itnplvnnnts used,
were, to say the least, of a respectable chnrac- ;
ter. if not tho very " last improved," they j
were good, strong and well adapted to the pur- J
pose for which tuey were intended, though j
perhaps, involving a great r cutlay ol time
and labor iu their Use, than others.
There is no more foolish economy, than that
practiced by many farmers of going into the
field with poor implements. J>y this term I
do not mean, those simply, which are not in
proper condition for work. A half worn oat
tool is almost worse than none, and can never
he used to advantage, when a better and more
complete one can be hud. Let us illustrate. —
What economy cau there be in using a plow, |
the poiut of which is so completely worn off,
that it is not only adding to the labors ot the 1
plowman to keep it steady in the ground, but
it is, also, almost doubling the labor of the
horses. Trifling as tho difference between a
sharp and a dull plow point may seem to the
careless observer, a moment's calm reflection 1
will convince us that the economy of the dull
point is purchased at the expense of five times
its cost. The horses cannot do the 6atne amount;
of work, the plowman being wearied fails to
accomplish his full task, while last and not .
. least, the work it-elf is not as well done. Now J
pnt that rr:d that together, ye penny-wise
economist, and see on which side of the ques- (
tioo you .should place yourst it.
What economy can tin-re be in the ue of a
harrow, the teeth of which are worn oil?
None that wo can c u\ Tu I lout teeth defeat
tho very idea of harrowing, and the eonso-.
qnence is, that two or three harrowings are ;
required with the duli toothed harrow, where
perh'at s a single one would In ve answered, had
it been in order. Put that and that together,
friends, and determine for yourselves.
What economy is there in the use of a mow
ing machine with the knives in bud order, and
the nuts loose and the journals laekiag oil if—
The most wretched economy we should say.
What are the results of going to tho field with
a mower in -uch condition ? I ir-t, bad work,
second, little of it, third, fagged-down horses,
fourth, worn out drivers, fifth, a machine fit
the end of the season, liteially worn out or
pulled to pieces. Put that and that together,
friends, and then det rmine whice is the wiser |
plan ;—to go to the field with your mower in
first rate order, or in the coud.Loa of which
we have spoken.
The true economy of farming in this day, is
the latest improved implements, kept iu the
very best order. If men are behind the sea
son in this fast age, the fault is with themselves.
Mechanical ingenuity has tasked its powers to
produce the right kmd of tools, with which to
keep pace with the times. If farmers will not
purchase, or if they do purchase, will not keep
them in order, the fault is with them-— Far.
DESTRUCTION" OF SMAI.I. BIRDS-CAUSING ALARM
■—For several seasons, and particularly the
last, there was found to be a scarcity of bread
stuffs in France. This state of things caused
great alarm, and memorials were presented
from some of the departments to the Minister
of Agriculture, the Legislative Chamber, and
the Emperor. An elaborate report has been
aiade on the su' j' in which the destruction
of small birds is c-l.aii.ed with being one ot the
leading causes of deficient crops. The destruc- j
tion of small birds h gone on increasing, and i
in corresp tiding ratio has proceeded the in j
crease of those in J ects and reptiles which prey
on the crops of grain ami ail kinds of vegeta
ble food ; and on these insect tribes the small
birds live. To that degreo of ahum has the
public mind bceu brought, that inquiry and in
vestigation have been iusututed, aud have also
demonstrated the fact that the destruction of
the beautiful r mgsteis may, if coutinu d, l-.ad
to something like positive (amine, 'lhis doc
ument has been tiausl itcd and is being circu
lated in England,to aid in arresting the wanton
destruction of birds iu tiiat country. It was
the subject of a paper recently read before tho
Natural History Society of litigate, from
which we cat the fo.tawing :
" Although the sparrows levy a small con
tribution of the farmer's grain, yet the fur
greater portion of th nr food i.-> .from injurious
insects, anil the whole ot the fuod they give to
their young, is from the tribe of insects. At
tho beginning of the world man would have
succumbed iu the unequal struggle if God had
not given him in the bird a powerful uuxiiiary
n/ faithful ally—who wonderfully accom
plishes the tu-k which man is incapable of per
forming—in fact against his enemies ot the
inject world man would be powerless without
ibe bird."— floor's liural JS'UC Yorker.
FIELD BBAN'SWITH CORN*.— One of thcerop3
used to fill out corn, when it grows scantily,
or Las failed in hi!!s or spots, is the white bush
bean. There is wisdom in the selection. The
leguminous and cereal are considered so
essentially dissimilar in their dralts upon the
soil, that they are adapted to follow each
other in any rotation. SJ tar as we are aware,
expei ience has not yet discovered that corn
suffers essentially, if ut ail, lor having a large
crop cf beans grown at the same time upon
the'soil. A heavier draft is, of course made
upon the soil if a large crop be taken off. It
JS a common practice in some communities, to
drop a few beans on the south side of every
corn bill having less than three stales. An
outlier method is the following : The corn be
ing in hills equally distant, in rows running
both ways, nt the second hoeing, after plowing
or running the weeuer both ways, plant beans
between the hills in rows running one way.—
Others plant similarly at the same tiuit> the
corn is planted.
Beans planted by themselves arc a very
profitable crop, not exhausting the soil, aud
■in admirable food for slurp. They uniformly
bring a remunerative price, and are sometimes
very high and in great demand. They do best
on "good corn land, not richly manured, in rows
two aud a half feet apart, kept well weeded
and hoed.— American Agiicullurist.

> Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
-1 ing for the winter, will lind it greatly to their advantage
? to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburn'a connection with the institution is not
such as to in any way interfere with the discharge of the
regular duties of his oßice.
No pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees io sustaining the high rcpnlatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, aud in rendering it more wor
by of future patronage and support.
