Meadows and Pastures, "
Several months ago Prof. Buckmaa de
livered a leciuio ou the subject at our
head before the Fariugdon (England) Agri
cultural Library Association. The North
British Agriculturist, iu publishing it remarks:
The principal points brought out are that
meadows and pastures will ouly yield the lar
gest amount of valuable" grasses when they are
Under careful culture. Sour grasses usually
disappear with thorough drainage, and the
more nutritious grasses take their places ; but
to euable the soil to produce these in abun
dance, it is often necessary to apply manure.
To eradicate some of the inferior grasses, weed
ing is necessary ; ar:d as the greater number oi
the 150 species of grasses which occupy mea
dows and pastures iu this country are not rel
ished by the domesticated auimals, the expense
tailed by weeding and manuring will ofteu be
considerable ; but this expense will generally
be more than covered by the improved swathe
of grass cut from the meadows, and the in
creased amount of succulent and nutritious her
bage produced cn the pasture lauds.
Boiling and harrowing aro often beneficial
to certain descriptions of meadows and pas
tures—rolling by consolidating the soil, and
borrowing by removing moss and other weeds.
The trampling by the folding ol sheep is only
beneficial where the sheep are the channel by
which fertilising matter is brought to the
meadows or pastures. Prof. Buckuer indicates
away o( improving a madow or pasture in
bad condition by sheep being removed from
the turnip field in the evening, and kept in
the meadow or pasture during the night.—
This system has not much to recommend it to
general adoption, as it is not conductive to the
health aud general progress of the sheep being
fattened on the turnips. A better plan is to
cart food to the meadow or pasture to be im
proved ; the sheep feed upon turnips and ol
eaginous cakes, corn, Ac , will render the por
tions folded more productive. The Professor
also recommends that in sowing out meadows
and pastures care should be exercised to pro
cure clean grass seeds. This is one of the con
ditions essential to obtain a valuable meadow
or pasture field.
As the season advances, the owners and oc
cupiers of meadows and pastures should study
the character of the plants which occupy the
soil. Draining, manuring and weeding will
eifect iuch decided changes as to render such
]ands much more profitable to ail those direct
ly interested in their productive capabilities.
RECIPE F.OR RHUBARB WINK. — Some time
since we noticed a sample of Rhubarb Wine,
sent us by Mr. C. P. Stephens, of La Salle
Co., 111. It wns pronounced a very fine arti
cle by all who tasted it. Mr. Stephens in bis
method of making wine as follows :
"I strip the leaves from the stalks,and crush
the latter in a sugar mill, and press them in a
press having a three inch iron screw. For a •
40 gallon barrel 1 put into a mixing tub 20 [
gallons of juice, 140 lbs. of best brown sugar, I
and water enough to make 40 gallons. Mix i
well, and pour into the barrel, leaving the
bung open and keep the barrel full until it is !
done working, and then bung tight for six .
weeks. Then dissolve four ox. of isinglass in '
warm wine, pour it into-the barrel and bung
tight, leaving it so for a year ; then rack off
and it is lit for use, but will be much better at
two years, and so on the older the better.
To DESTROY THF, CATERPII.TAR —We find in
the lowa Homestead, the following method of
a correspondent to destroy eaterpillers :
"I have found but one sure means of get
ting rid of them. Once a day Igo about my
trees, carrying with uie a pan or bucket of
common soap, diluted with water to the con
sistency of the yolk of an egg. I make liber
al application of the soap to limbs, above and
below where the web is located, and am care
ful to Lave the web perfectly daubed, so as not
to permit the escape of any insect. I easily
apply the soap to the high limbs by fastening
a " swab'' of tow or rags to the end of a pole
This must be attended to once a day, cr the
fruiting trees will he stripped of a vast amount
of fruit. Their increase is beyond probable
conjecture, and they arc more tt nacious of life
than many would snppo=e Soap appears to
destroy the worm immediately. Many rub tar
on the tree to-prevent insects from craw'iag
up ; this I consider injurious to the bark of the
tree, and only a poor means of prevention."
An exchange remarks that whale oil soap,
about a pound to a bucket of water, is much
stronger and more offensive as well a destruc
tive to insects of all kinds, than the common
soap. Where properly applied, it seems to
kill and keep away all kinds of slugs, worms,
CURRANT WINE. —Dissolve eight pounds of
honey in fifteen gallons of boiling water to
which when clarified, add tlie juice of eight
pounds of red or white currants ; then ferment
for twenty-four hours : to every two gallons
add two pounds of sugar, and clarify with
whites of eggs.
RASPBERRY WlNE. —Bruise the finest ripe
raspberry with a back of a spoon ; strain them
through a flannel bag into a stone jar ; allow
one pound of fine powdered loaf sugar to one
quart of jvice ; stir these well together, and
cover the jar closely ; let it stand three days,
stirring the mixture up every day ; then pour
off the clear liquid, and put two quarts of sher
ry to each quart of juice or lipuid. Bottle it
off, and it will be fit for use in a fortnight.—
l>y adding Cognac brandy instead, of sherry,
the mixture will be raspberry brandy.
RASIBERNY CRKAM. — Bub a quart of rasp
berry jam, through a hair seive, to take out
the seeds, and then mix it well with cream ;
sweeten with sugar to taste ; put into a stone
jug, and raise a froth with a chocolate mill ;
as your froth rises take it olf with a spoon,
and lay it upon a hair sieve. When you have
got as much froth us you want, put what
cream remains into a deep china dish or punch
bowl, and pour your frothed cream upon it, as
it will lie ou.
1100 CHOI.ERA. —The Illinois Farmer says :
*' We have never known a farmer to lose "his
hogs by this di?ea ; c who kept them in good
clover pasture during the summer."
CHERRY JAM.— Stouc four pounds of cher
ries, put them in a preserving pan, with two
pouuds of fine white sugar and a pint of red
currant jam -; boil the. whole together rather
fast,'until it stiffens, and llun put it MI to pots,
"for me. - * ' .

" To be, or not to lie— hat is the question!
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The .-lings and arrows of outrageous apposition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing in I;,
And opposing, end them."
THE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver
tising his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for iling
about a "sort of a concern," which ishoping " to delude
the public.*' As I have opened a Bindery on rny own ac
count, the inference is that if the public bring their
binding to me, they are in no danger of being defrauded.
For two years I have worked for Mr. PARSONS, and he
has taken great pains t satisty the public I was the " best
Binder in America,' as the columns of the Argus wil
testily. Has he been all that time " deluding the pub
lie?"" If I have been engaged in a fraud.lie has been th
principal. But I refer to my work during that time a
evidence that there has been no fraud practiced.

The Collegiate year is divided into three terms of 14

the close of the Spring term.
No deduction will be made for absence, except in case
of protracted illness of over two weeks.
Instrumental Music will not,as heretofore, be tanght in
the Institution,but by special arrangement—a class will
be taught in a null adjoining the grounds ofthe Institute,
b\ - the Teacher of Vocal Music.
This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,
and experience has proved it to be eminently superior to
tlic plan pursued in former years. Special pains will lie
taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Terms will he as heretofore :
Tuition on Piano Forte, per term $lO 00
Use of instrument on which to take lessons 50

Pupils boarding in the Hall will furnish their own tow
els, Ac., and the table silver a. their option. It is desira
ble that they also furnish their own lied and bedding
when it is convenient, but when otherwise, these will be
furnished at n slight charge.
It is strongly recommended that students from abroad
should hoard in the Institution, as bettor opportunities
lor advancement in study are thereby secured.
Xormul Department —Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of (lommon Schools. Prof. C. It. CO BURN, 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 lie present to conduct its exercises as often
as 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.
Prof. Coburn's connection with the institution is not
such as to in any way interfere with the discharge ot the
regular duties of his office.
NO pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining the high repnlatatinn the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, and iu rendering it more wor
by of future patronage and support ... N
