It has been assorted of late years by ag
riculturalists of standing and eminence,
that the turnip and other root crops are so
far from being profitable to the farmer, that
when all expenses of cultivation and atten
dance upon the cattle are taken into the
account, the balance-sheet wotild show a
heavy loss at the end of the season, with
out reckoning the loss of animals by acci
dent or disease, which is frequently also
very heavy -, and they argue from this that
farming would be more profitable if they
could dispense with root crops and cattle
grazing altogether, so far as winter is con
cerned, the bullock shed being, at best, only j
a manure manufactory, and the cattle the j
working machines in it
This, however, is a very narrow view to j
take of the question ; because, if it is ad- j
mittcd that the direct return for the expense j
of raising a turnip crop and consuming it j
by bullocks is usually very small, and prob-!
ably may sometimes exhibit a balance on
the wrong side of the page, those expenses
ought in fairness to be spread over the
whole course of crops, which receive a j
double benefit, in the better condition and j
cleanness of tlie land, and in the unexhaus- j
ted manure in the soil after the turnips are ;
removed. If we add to these the conver- j
sion of the straw into manure of a far su-,
perior quality to what was formerly made
by lean cattle, it needs no calculation what
ever to prove that the turnip husbandry is
the basis of agricultural prosperity ; and
we see the proofs of it in the condition of I
the land, as well as its cultivators, as com- j
pared with what it was before the alternate j
culture and the turnip husbandry were !
It is not always, however, that cattle
winter grazing is unprofitable, or attended
with a loss ; and at the present, which
seems likely to be the permanent, price of j
beef and mutton, we might expect to find I
the reverse to be the case, and that inde-;
pendent of the collateral advantages there •
would be a direct profit upon the consump
tion of the turnip or mangel crops. If we
estimate the whole expense of raising them, 1
in round numbers, as averaging £9 per
acre (which we believe to bo not far from
the truth), that quantity of Swedes will fat
ten a bullock of front 60 stone to 10 stone, ;
tnat may be purchased at any of the fairs
at Michaelmas for £l4. When fat, it will
fetch 8s per stone, or from £24 to £2B,
which certainly will entail no loss on gra
zing. We have, however, given the ex-;
treme cost price of the lean animal, which i
may frequently be purchased for £l2 or
JtJl 3 ; but the above estimate is sufficient
to show that cattle grazing is not liecessar- j
ily or invariably a losing game. If corn
or cake is employed, the fattening process
will be hastened, with a corresponding de- j
crease in the consumption of the turnips,
so that it will benefit rather than injure the
acount. — Agriculture, Ancient and Modern. j
How to live cheaply and at the same time j
healthfully, is a problem which many would
be glad to solve, A few hints in this di-1
rection may be of service. Flour or some :
equivalent is an essential, but superfine j
wheat flour, for constant use is not esscu-j
tial, and quite an item may be saved by j
purchasing wheat, instead of barreled flour, ,
and having it ground without bolting. The J
use of this wheat meal a portion of the
time, will conduce to health, and perhaps
save another item in the doctor's bill. Rye ;
flour is not near us expensive as fine wheat j
flour, and corn meal is considerably less
also ; it will pay therefore to use to some i
extent the good old fashioned rye and In
dian bread. A very sweet bread may be
made of corn meal alone, with no addition j
but pure water, if baked quickly in thin
sheets. If you have milk to use with it,
there are many excellent ways of prepar
ing corn and corn meal, to accomapny it, ;
and this grain may properly be used largely
iu winter. Many have forgotten how peo
ple used to hull corn by the use of weak
ley, and what an amount of good solid food i
may be prepared thus from two or three i
quarts of corn. New Dent corn makes ex
cellent hulled corn, and eaten with cream
and maple sugar, or with milk, or milk and
butter, or cream alone, is good enough, and
very nutritious. Butter and lard are very
high ; it may interest some to be reminded
that butter-milk with a slight addition of
butter or other shortening—that which
comes from boiled beef should not be over
looked—makes a healthful and very good
pie-crust. For pies, il apples are scarce,'
remember the pumpkins and squashes ;
good pumpkin pies can be prepared with
out eggs, by making the milk used, or a
portion of it, into a Hour porridge before
stirring the pumpkin into it. Custard pie
may be made without eggs also, from milk
flour porridge, by adding the necessary pas
tery and seasoning. Custards may be made
iu the same way, or with Irish moss, or ren
net. Samp from Indian meal makes a very
palatable pie in imitation of rice. Baked
apples are a good and most wholesome sub
stitute for pies, and they save sugar. Good
cake may be made with thin sour cream
and soda, without eggs, or butter. Mince
pies, to be very good, need not have all the
customary ingredients—dried berries may
be substituted for raisins, and if you have
blackberry pickles, try tliem—they are
good. Green Hubbard squashes prepared
as pumpkins are fixed for pies, are relished
by some, and it is a very good way to use i
them np. Rutabagas cost much less than
potatoes, per bushel, and are certainly good
food. Beans are high, but they give more
nutriment for the same money than many
lower priced articles of food. Onions eaten
with potatoes are a good substitute for
meat With plenty of vegetables, milk,
and fruit, meats are not essential. Health
and strength can be maintained without
pork, notwithstanding- Die high opinion
many have of its strength-producing qual
How A PIONEER ESTABLISHED AX ORCHARD.
—Mr. I. \V. Rollins removed from Xew Eng
land to Minnesota, in 185,0. At that time
the locality where lie settled was entirely
new, there being no land under cultivation
in his neighborhood. He did not wait until
he could afford to invest in fruit trees be
fore lie provided for an orchard, but sowed
apple seeds the first spring. In three years
he had trees ready to plant in the orchard,
and in four years more gathered his first
fruit. He has now a healthy, thrifty or
chard of 300 trees just coming into bear
ing. Many persons after they establish a
new farm wait more than nine years before
they are ready to plant an orchard of young
trees, and then several years more lor it to
yield returns. A little providence at the
beginning in starting the seedings, a little
skill iu budding or grafting, and care in
setting and protecting the young trees, are
all that is needed to soon give the poorest
settler in new countries a valuable orchard.
DRIED apples may be easily removed from •
strings by cutting the knots at the ends, j
and soaking the fiuit in water a short time.
Such fruit should always be washed clean '
BLIGHT IN TREES.
During the past aeason a similar malady
to the blight (in the pear) appears to have
attacted evergreens. We observed it first
in the Balsam Fir, where shoots only three
or four inches long became affected during
the excessive heat and drouth of the past
summer. Specimens of some of the pines
were sent to us by S. Rhoades, Esq., of
West Philadelphia, showing a similar re
sult, the tip shoots being dead and the
leaves a rusty brown. A fine specimen of
the Finns exeelsa on our own grounds has
mostly perished, the lower branches only
remaining fresh ; but the leaves have not
been discolored as in the other instances,
and it may not be precisely the same diffi- j
culty. Among several thousand pear trees I
growing within a short distance, not a sin !
gle case of genuine fire-blight has occurred !
this same season ; although a few have I
perished by that peculiar disease of the i
roots which has been observed of late years
But, in the latter case, the leaves, instead
of turning black, as in the genuine blight,
have only withered and become light-brown,
evidently in consequence of the mere lack j
of nourishment, the supply of which could j
not be obtained through the dead roots.
It is obvious that these appearances are ;
more apt to be openly developed (if not :
caused)during very hot weather, a system '
of training should be adopted that shall dis
tribute foliage evenly through the head and
prevent the sun from striking too severely
on any exposed portion. Succulent growth,
it is well known, renders the tree more li
able ; and hence, on a good, dry soil of ine
! dium fertility, that shall prevent an excess
! ive growth, but favor a healthy ripening of
| the wood of the shoots, the tree will be
| more likely to escape.— Country Gentleman.
SUMMER FALLOWS FOR WHEAT.
The editor of the Country Gentleman, in
an account of a visit to the farm of John
Johnson, of Seneca county, X. Y., one of
the most successful wheat growers in this
! State, says :
" Mr. Johnson believes in fallows. He
always fallows for wheat, until on renting
his farm some years ago he would allow
the tenant to sow after other crops, but he
now returns to the old practice as prefer
able and really more profitable. We went
out to a fallow of about 13 acres, broken
up because the twitch or couch grass had
j begun to coino in ; and the thorough pre
paration it was undergoing is like nothing
we have seen since the similar labors on
I English farms. It was ploughed early in
I the season, and cross-ploughed and har
rowed twice, in July. Xow (the first of
August) the roller was going over it, and
though already in as good order as most
fields are sown, Mr. Johnson has planned
to cultivate it, using this instrumeut to
| draw out what twitch roots remain, to plow
again, harrow, re-cultivate, and if neces
sary to harrow again before the seed is
drilled in. This will completely lid it of
the twitch, which will be raked up and
i burned, and the crop of wheat that follows
1 ought to be a good one indeed. The truth
; is, said he, ' our farmers don't half irorl
; their land ;' and this field was already so
! mellow that while a few lumps layover the
| surface hard and dry—close to the top on
j most of it, the soil was shown to be as
I moist as ever, notwithstanding a fortnight's
; lack of rain.''— Genesee Fanner.
OATS CHAXGED TO RYE. —Dr. Keissenborne,
a German naturalist, makes the following
remarks on this transmutation :
j " With reference to the transmutation of
I oats into rye, this remarkable phenomenon
has not only been verified by new experi
' merits, but we have caused beds to be
I sown with oats, in order that we may be
able to silence disbelievers by producing
1 rye stalks which have sprung from the
crown that still shows the withered leaves
of the oat plants of the previous year. 1
repeat that this transformation does take
place (about midsummer), the plants be
| ing cut twice (or thrice) as green fodder
before shooting into the ear ; the conse
quence of which is, that a considerable
; number of oat plants do not die in the course
' of the winter, but are changed in the fol
lowing spring into rye, forming stalks that
cannot be known from those of the finest
rye. The society (agricultural) at Coburg
takes credit to itself for perseverance in
having struggled against the opinion of the
public for several years, in order to estab
lish a fact which no physiologist would be
lieve, because people are always apt to
confound the laws of nature with those of
their own system."
SHELTER FOR GARDENS. —The real value of
shelter enn scarcely be too highly estimated
in many of the delicate operations of ifiod
ern gardening, and the idea of it when as
sociated with warmth is no less pleasing to
the mind in winter. On both grounds the
free use of evergreens when forming new
gardens or plantations is strongly advoca
ted ; they are invaluable for .the shelter
they afford, and the idea of warmth which
they convey. But a garden or pasture
ground, planted wholly with evergreens,
few would be bold enough to advocate ;
such would bo heavy in summer, and mon
otonous in winter. Evergreens may abound,
but they must not superabound. To abound
even, they require to be judiciously varied.
The free and spreading forms should be
mingled with the formal ; the large-leaved
and small leaved kinds must be properly
arranged and adjusted ; the light green,the
dark green, the glaucous and the variega
ted, must be represented in varying propor
tions to suit the character of the mansion
and the surrounding scenery.— Gardenerd
SALTING STOCK.—A correspondent of the
Germantown Telegraph says :
" I have used salt for stock a good many
years, and have pretty much made up my
mind not to gire'my cattle, any more. I have
been feeding a little less and less for the
past four or five years, and it seems to be
a waste of money, inasmuch as my stock
is quite as fat and sleek as when I fed salt.
" I have also been told that salt fed to
milch cows would cause butter to churn
easier and quicker, but I cannot see the
benefit in this case either.
" I spoiled a stack of clover by salting
it. I tried putting it up without salt, and
it was much better.
" Such is my experience for a good many
years : and although cattle are very fond
of the article, I am sure they will do quite
as well without it. Salt is worth four dol
lars per bushel here, and is advancing.—
Give your stock good food, and a variety,
and they don't need salt."
VITALITY OF TURNIP SEED.— The London
Agricultural Gazette says : " After exten
sive experiments we can declare, as their
result, that turnip seed of one year o'd will
only germinate about fifty per cent.; three
years old, fifteen per cent.; four year old,
five per cent.
