THIS subject is becoming one of especial in
terest to farmers, and more particularly to
tliose who own small farms, and are under the
necessity of economising iu a rigid degree, in
order to support their families.
The principle and economy qf foiling is
this, a- half an acno of land can easily be made
to furnish green food for a cow or a horse
during the season, till it becomes necessary to
commence with winter feed in December,while
it requires from an acre and a half to two
acres of pasture to keep the same animal the
Rem® length of time. Besides this gr< at sav
ing of land, the manure of each animal soiled
la worth the interest on two acres of land, at
sso ! per acre, over what it would be on the
common pasturage system. To offset a por
tion of this advantage, we must take into the
account the labor it requires to cat the greeo
fodder and feed it out daily ; and yet 1 am
inclined so believe this labor is no more than
a fair equivalent fur the saving of time in diiv
ing stock to pasture, and keeping the fences
in a condition far more expensive than the
soiling system requires. Indeed, on this a/s
tem, fences may be dispensed with altogether,
except euclosure and roadsides.
Feuciug materials are now becoming an
item of great expense to ail farmers, net only
in the materials themselves, but also is the la
bor of building the fences and keeping them
in good repair. Moreover, the waste land
that fences occupy (which is very considera
ble,) on the soiling system may aii be cultivat
ed—an item of considerable importance on
small farms where the land is divided into
To adopt tLis system with the best results,
the land from which the green fodder is to
couic should be adjointly the barn, level and
very fertile ; and with the abundance of ma
nure that is procured by soiling, there is no
difficulty in making the land rich and produe
The best article for soling is clover, and
next to this is corn sown in drills or brood
east, oats, millet, rye, sugar cane (sorghum)
barley, Hungarian grass, and any variety of
grass that grows tall and iuxuraut which E
relished by 6tock.
Sweet corn is the best to sow for soiling
1 have used a kind called " Darling's prolific,"
which is well adapted to this purpose on ac
count of its thrifty growth and its tendency
to tiller, or throw ont numerous suckers. Jt
may be sown in drills about 18 inches apart
with a seed sower. Cattie are kept in much
better condition by soiling them. They are i
often turned out to pasture too early in the ;
spring, before the grass is sufficiently grown !
to afford them enough to satisfy their hunger,
and if there happens to be early drouth they
cannot thrive, and they will hardly get over!
the effect of a bad winter's keeping before i
they enter upon another. On the soring sys ;
tern, a drouth does not seriously affected the
stock, as their supply of fodutris always green '
succulent and abundant.
Independent of all the considerations cf
economy that I have named, cows gives much j
moie milk when soiled, und yielded it mo:e
regularly than when pastured, aud the waste !
of time, and the worrying cf cows in driving !
them to distaut fields in warm weather are
avoided. What can be more injurious to a
noble cow than to seud an unfeeling boy to
drive her a half a mile to pasture every day
during the summer, with the thermometer oi
teu up to 39 degiecs, while perhaps she is
worried by a dog, or pcuuded with a club,
because she docs not happen to suit in her
gate, or othe r wise, her driver ? Milk when
thus heated by improper driving of cows does
not produced as much cream as it does under
other circumstances, which is a good argument
in favor of the soiling system. Butter made
from the milk ot soiled cows does not have that
oily appearance which is so often tho case in
warm weather, when oowa are driven to and
from the pasture. Nor is there any difficulty
in butter " corning" in the warmest weather,
A farmer in Wa!tham,Ma9s.,.is said to have
made last season 386 lbs. of butter, from the
milk of four cows, in thirteen weeks, fed on
green fodder—chiefly grass, and corn sowed
broadcast. The cows w ere not out of the
barnyard during that time. Two o; the ani
mals wero heifers only two years old, which
bad calves in the spring, and the whole of the
milk ofoue ot them was takeu by her calf
during six weeks of the thirteen, and some of
the milk of the other was used in the family ;
from which circumstances it may be said that
the four cows should not be rated-ut more than
three ordinary one-.
A yard should be connected with the barn
of a size proportionate to the number of cat
tle soiled. For a hail a dozeu cows, about a
quarter of an acre is necessary, so that the
weaker one 3 may not be annoyed by those
that aro stronger and pugnacious. They
should have an open shed to lie under in stor
my weather during summer, aud in November
they should be housed in their stalls at night.
On this system of feeding, large quantities
of roots can be fed to advantage. Indeed, let
no-man think that he can derive the greatest
possible profit from his live stock who does
not grow root crops. Roots are the key to
aii successful fartniug in England, and they
are almost as important here. Carrots stand
at the head of the li.>t here, but the turnips
in Englund. Every Miich cows ahold be fed
a half a bushel of carrots, at least, daily, from
November till June, or some other equivalent
root that does not uffeet the milk —T. 13.

TILLING ORCHARD LANDS. —It is doubtless
well to cultivate the ground in which young
orchards stand. By this, we mean that the
laud is to be mauured and worked, as well
as cropped. It is supposed, also, that in plow
ing great pains is taken to guard against bark
ing the young trees by the wbiffietree, or bav
iug them gnawed or broken down by horses.
But when the trees have arrived at bearing
age, it is better to suspend plowing among
the roots. The loss will be greater than the
gain for it is impossible tc avoid looseuingand
breaking the roots ; amd if this be done, it is
sure to engender disease, stint the growth, and
lead to premature decay. When an old or
chard, having long Etood in sod, gets napping,
moss grown, and scaulily fruitful, the best waj
is to scarafy the surface with a harrow, and
nfterwanl apply a good dressing of manure

Normal Department —Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Sehools. Prof. C. R. COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to be pursued.
He will also be present to conduct its exercises as often
RS practicable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.

such as to in any way interfere with the discharge of the
regular duties of his oflice.
