TEE CROPS FOR THE YEAR
According to the report of the Agricul
tural Bureau, the wheat crop for the year
1864, amounts to 160,695,853 bushels. It
takes about five bushels of wheat to make
a barrel of flour, which would make the
production equal to thirty-three and a half
millions of barrels, or more than one and a
half barrels to every one of the population
of 20,000,000 whose industry produced it.
The production of wheat is only about 9,-
000,000 less than in 1863, which was con
sidered an excellent crop. The rye produc
tion was 19,872,957 bushels, or less than
one million short of the production of the
previous year. Barley 10,786,328 —about
the same decrease as rye in the years pro
duction. Oats 176,600,864 bushels, an in
crease six millions over the previous year.
Hay 18,116,751 tons, or about a million and
a half tons less than in 1863. Corn 530,-
581,403 bushels, or about seventy-eight
millions increase over the previous year.
Buckwheat 18,700,540 bushels, an increase
of nearly three millions. Potatoes 95,275,-
888 bushels, a decrease of four millions.
Taking the yearly production, therefore,
the balance is in favor of 1864, and the
quality is much better. If the currency
and taxes did not affect prices, all the lead
ing articles of provisions which form the
support of life would be less in price. The
sorghum, another valuable crop, shows a
large increase. In the production of ani
mal food there is, however, a material fall
ing off in nearly all the States. The pro
duction of flaxseed shows a very large in
crease—New Jersey and Pennsylvania tak
ing the lead in the increas , in the first am
ounting to over fourteen per cent., and in
Pennsylvania four per cent. Ten of the
loyal States produce cotton. The falling
off in tobacco is set down at sixty-seven
millions of pounds.
Balancing all the increase and decrease
of vegetable and animal production, and
there is shown to be an abundance of food
for the population.
CONTRACTION OF HORSES' FEET.
Mr. Jennings, late Professor of Anatomy |
in the Veterinary College of Philadelphia,
we regard as one of our most intelligent j
and skillful veterinary surgeons, and enti
tied to great confidence in his profession, j
He has written much and well for the diff
erent journals, on the diseases of animals ;
and the following article on the "Contrac
traetion of Feet of Horses," strikes us as a
very clear and satisfactory statement of its
cause and remedy, and deserving of atten
The tendency of a horses' foot, in a healthy
condition, is to expand whenever the weight
of the body is thrown upon them. Being a
very complicated piece of mechanism, they
are very easily disarranged, and once out
of order are difficult to repair ; hence the
necessity of preserving them in a sound
Contraction is caused—lst. By cutting
away the bars of the feet, which are the
main stays for the support of the quarters.
2d. By (opening the heels as the smith
calls it,)cutting away a portion of the frog,
in consequence of which the moisture of
frog becomes absorbed, losing its elasticity
and not destroying its function, thus expos
ing the feet to injury by concussion 3d.
By standing upon plank floors. 4th By
An ordinary observer will, upon an ex
amination of the common shoe, notice that
it includes from without inwards at the
heels, thus forming a concavity for the feet
to rest in ; the consequence is a lateral re
sistance of the expansion of the hoofs,
when the weight of the body is thrown up
on them. The effect of this resistance is to
force the heels together, creating a pres
sure upon the sensitive parts within the
horny case; establishing fever by which
the moisture of the hoofs is rapidly absor
bed, rendering the hoofs hard, brittle and
liable to oracle, and not unfrequently caus
ing corns, navicular joint lameness, bony
deposits to be thrown out from the lateral
wings or processes of the coffin bones, ren
dering the animal permanently lame or un
sound. These are but few of the bad ef
fects arising from contraction; enough.how
ever, to verve our purpose at present.
11 KMNI)Y. — Preserve a level bearing by
making the shoes perfectly flat on the quar
ters, so as not to interfere with the expan
sion of the feet. Should contraction al
ready exist to a considerable extent, bevel
the shoes slightly outward at the heels, in
order to facilitate expansion. Care should
be used not to bevel too much, or bulging
at the lower part of tiie hoofs at the quar
ters will be the result. The shoes should
in all cases be forged and not twisted, as is
sometimes done to save trouble by the
bungling smith. Proper applications, to
soften the horny parts and promote elasti
city, should also be used. Such prepera
tions are put up in the form of hoof oint
TO MAKE FARM LIFE ATTRACTIVE.
Young men often leave their homes in
the country for city employment because
lhey dislike the hard and dirty work, and
because the adornment of the homes of
their childhood has not been attended to.
(Jirls dislike to marry young farmers be
cause they see a life of drudgery in the
prospect, such as cooking large meals for
hired men, and because the throng of labor
ers which must fill up their houses preclude
the idea of comfort and seclusion. By at
tending to the following points much of
those evils could be avoided.
1. Build cheap, but good and comforta
ble laborers' cottages, and hire steady mar
ried men to occupy them and thus board at
2 Let the owner attend to strict clean
liness so far as may be practicable ; that is.
never enter the house with a heavy or dirty
pair of boots, but take them off in an out
house whenever entering for meals or for
(he night, and replace them with slippers.
The same care should be given to outer
J!. Attend to frequent washing and bath
ing, and a frequent change of clothes -it
is nearly as easy to wash several garments
slightly soiled as one loaded with dirt.
4. bet all rooms, and especially bed
rooms, be well ventilated, and evciv cause
of foul and offensive air be removed.
5. Let the living-rooms be handsomely
furnished inside—with books, pictures,
minerals and specimens of natural history
philosophical apparatus, (all in proper
cases,) materials for drawing, and every
thing else to make ill-doors attractive to
6. Let the surroundings of the house be
appropriated to ornamental planting—trees,
shrubbery, flower beds cut in smooth turf,
Ac., and have ample orchards and fruit gar
dens, so that a constant supply of delicious
and fresh fruit may be obtained from them,
from the season of the earliest strawber
ries in June, until the late frosts MI autumn
-—and afterwards that a copious supply
may lie obtained from the fruit-room until
the first of the succeeding summer.
7. Let all the operations of farming be
carried on without hurry or excessively
hard labor, by means of the most systematic
management ; let agriculture be made at
tractive by its neatness and succes.—Coun
THE BEST TIME TO SOW GRASS-SEED. —1
have an impression that experimental
knowledge is the most valuable to the far
mer. For more than half a century I have
been experimenting to find the best time to
sow grass seed. For more than thirty of
the first years of my farming 1 did as my
neighbors did ; we supposed the spring
months were the only proper ones for that
purpose. But later in life by reading ag
ricultural papers, I discovered that some
enterprising farmers were successful in
sowing their grass-seed in August or Sep
tember. I tried the experiment with com
plete success; that being the season it
would naturally fall, it appeared evident
to my mind that it was the right one. But
still later I have been particular, and have
sowed grass-seed at any season when my
ground was prepared to receive it, and if
the seed was good it has uniformly vegeta
ted and done well.
Last fall wc (my son and myself) after
harvestimg our potatoes from the low, wet
soil, which would not admit of seeding dowli
in early spring, sowed herd-grass and red
top seed on the 14th and 15th of October
upon said potato field, doubting, but still
hoping for the best; and now, the Bth of
July, it bids fair to give us the best crop of
hay produced on any of my farm lots. This
grass probably will require two weeks lon
ger to grow than that which has been
seeded down longer. I think I never saw
seed vegetate better at any season. Grass
seed will vegetate a long time after being
sowed. In the spring of 1862 1 seeded
down a lot of good ground, but rather dry,
with red-top seed ; the months of June and
July were uncommonly dry, and at the mid
dle of August there was no appearance of
a grass sprout on the piece. On the 1 Otli
of August, the same year, it began to rain
profusely, and continued raining for several
weeks till the ground was saturated. In
September, more than-four months after the
seed was sown, every seed seemed to vege
tate, and the ground appeared like a beau
tiful lawn. And on the whole, I have con
cluded that any time when our land is in a
good state of preparation to receive the
seed is the best time to sow it.— [SU.AS
BROWX, in Boston Cultivator.
INCREASING Son..—By deepening the culti
vation of your soil you add to its quantity.
Thus, by having your soil eight inches
deep, where before you only had it foni in
ches, you double its capacity —somewhat
as though you had two acres now where
you had only one before. Hid you ever
think of this ? Eight inches of cultivated
soil has double the strength of four. This
is a new- way of increasing your land—not
new to our best farmers, who understand
all this—and hence they cultivate deep—
not deep at once, but gradually, each year
a little deeper, or at every plowing.—
Ploughing alone makes the soil mellow, has
a wonderful effect, even without manure ;
but manure, it must be remembered, is the
main reliance always.
In deepening your soil judgment is re
quired. Not too much of the raw subsoil
must be brought up at a time, unless it is
rich—then plough deep. In clay soils little
at a time is the true theory. Cut off half
an inch of clay, more or less at each plough
ing. This, thrown up to the action of the
elements, will be reduced to powder, and it
at once goes to work drawing strength from
the atmosphere—clear profit, you see ; it
has the effect of plaster. Then it is a ma
nure in itself. These heavy clay beds are
valuable beds of manure. As they are gen
erally spread < ut with your soil, you need
only to adjust your clevis pin to manure
your ground. But this must only lie done
when the super-soil is thoroughly friable,
in good cultivated order. Too much clay
brought up will stiffen your soil ; and air,
and heat and rain are kept out ; and thus
it remains stiff, cold, stubborn soil, on which
little or nothing can he grown. Grass is
the only thing that stands the least chance.
- J 'alley Farmer.
TOP-PRESSING GRASS-LAND. —Many New
England farmers top-dress grass land, and
find it very profitable. We noticed as
early as August that some farmers had lie
gun to cart out manure for this purpose. It
should be spread down soon after the heads
are dropped, and if the manure is lumpy, it
should be pushed over immediately after
spreading, in order to break the lumps in
pieces. Then it should he picked over if
the compost, as is sometimes the case, con
tains small stones, such as are in the way
of hand-scythe and mowing machine.
Farmers lot unfrequently suffer the ma
nure heaps to remain too long before spread
ing them. Some even wait until spring be
fore doing it. This is had economy, ordi
narily speaking. It is said by some far
mers, that if a side hill, liable to be washed,
be top-dressed, it is better to let the ma
nure remain till late in the spring before it
is spread. If this be an exception, which
some even doubt, it is no argument against
fall spreading <>n level meadows. When
heaps of manure are suffered to remain uu
spread over winter it will be observed in
mowing, that the grass is much heavier
where the heaps remained, thus proving
: that much of the value of the manure was
washed out during the fall and winter. Let
manure for top-dressing, then, he early
spread.— Massai-husetts Ploughman.
"WHAT IS A COMPOST?" —This name is
properly applied to any manure made by
mixing various substances of fertilizing
value, so that by their action upon one an
other, or by the effect of the mixture, their
joint value is enhanced. Thus, when we
mix a bushel or two of lime clacked with
brine, or ashes, with a load of muck, the re
sult is a compost worth more to the soil
than both applied separately. So when we
take bone dust, lien manure, and leached
ashes or plaster, in judicious proportions,
wc make a compost which is good for ma
nuring corn in the hill, for top-dressing for
grass, etc., and so composed or " compos
ted " as to he more conveniently handled,
and worth more than if separate. "Coin
post" does not mean anything in particular,
but all compound manures in general which
farmers make.— American Agriculturist.
How TO MAKE AN OMELET. —The proper
way to make <lll omelet, is to tke three
tablespoonfals of milk for each egg, and a
pinch of salt to each one also. Beat the
eggs lightly for two or tiiree minutes, and
pour them into a hot pan in which a piece
of butter the size of a walnut has been
melted a moment before. The mass will
begin to bubble and rise in flakes immedi
ately, and the bottom must be lifted inces
santly with a clean knife so that the softer
parts run in. An omelet should be cooked
three or four minutes, and made in this
way will melt in the mouth.— Se ientific-ulm
