From the lfaltiuiove American Farmer.
Farm Work for the Month.
With tite opening of spring, as the
witi'ijy weather clears up, and April
winds dry off the ground, everything
must be put in motion, and nothing
omitted lrom the necessary prepara
tion to make a fair start, and keep
pace with the movements of thejsea
suu. The first great work of the year's
Plowing. —This embraces the prop
er breaking up of all sod-land,and all
such as may be prepared for seeding
down to grass for two or more years.
It is to be borne in mind, constantly,
that it is not nn re cropping and its
results that we were aiming at, but
progressive and lasting improvement,
and that of this, the very foundation
is good ploughing—a thorough break
ing up, of that which we cultivate,
and breaking from such a depth as
will continually increase the bulk of
terti lined soil. Below the very deep
est we have yet reached, there is a
lower depth which we need not fear
to invade one or two inches farther.
I ins f.r the permanent improvement
ol toe laud. For the present crop,and
as a point ot mere labor saving, one
good, thorough ploughing is equal to
three imperfectly and indifferent exe
In any ordinary soil, we sliouid not
be content with less than seven inch
es, and the nearer we can approach
twelve the better. The subsoil plough
will readily break to the depth of fif
teen inches. There may be soils that
lorm an exception to the rule of deep
ploughing, and which,from some hurt
(ul property of the subsoil, need to be
deepened gradually, but they are so
rare, we think,as not to give any con
cern iu our ordinary operations.—
Where there is risk of harm the
ground should be deepened iu the
A deep soil is the very first requis

almost every crop, so very uncertain
in u shallow soil, are, in a deep oue,
almost insured against the vicissi
tudes of the season. I'lanted in a Led
ot twelve inches, our all-important
corn crop, would not fail of a good
yield, one year in twenty.
Except on the lightest laud, three
horses to plough are necessary to
break sod-land properly. As ample
strength ol team, as well as number
as condition, is must necessary to the
success of farm operations, see to it
now, that any deficiency is promptly
The master should bestow the most
carciul supervision, to ensure that
the plough, the gearing, and every
other requisite be in proper order,and

On a tobacco plantation, the iand

Oats and Parley. — These crops are
usually sown upon such lands as
save been cultivated the previous
year iu corn and other hard crop,and
not thought suitable for wheat. As
clover seed is usually sown with
them, or should be, unless under the
system which wheat iollow oats, at
least a hundred weight of some good
superphosphate should be sown on
the surface in immediate contact with
the clover seeds. Sow at the very
earliest time that the ground may be
in order, ploughing in the seed with
a liht furrow. Then sow immediate
ly, clover and grass seeds and the
fertilizer, and follow with a lieavv
Clover Seed on Wheal Fields.— lt
clovei seed has not yet been sown on
wheat fields, wait till the frost is out
of the ground, leaving it cracked and
open, then sow and follow with rol
ler. This implement will cover the
seed sufficiently, and be very benefic
ial to the wheat. Six quarts of seed
to the acre is not all too much. It is
a wasteiul practice to put this costly
seed upon land not properly prepared
tor it, hut otherwise no price would
justify its omission from an ordinary
rotation of crops.
Orchard Crass. —Sow seeds of this
valuable grass at the same time that
clover seed is sown, and put it in by
the same operation ; this is the best
of the grasses adapted to our soil
and climate, when a strong and per
manent sod is wanted for grazing, as
well as for a crop of hay. It makes
good hay, little inferior to timothy if
not allowed to get too ripe. It starts
very early in spring, endures drought
well,grows late in fall, makes a large
alter math, and bears close grazing,
indeed, makes the better pasturage
by it. It is fit for the scythe at the
same time that clover is, and the two
should be sown together. A bushel
ot seed to the acre is the usual quan
tity, sown with other seeds, hut two
bushels is not too much to ensure a
thick sod. It is too expensive, how
ever. tor seediug in an ordinary rota
lion ; but where hay and pasturage
is needed for a succession of seasons,
it is iudispensible.
\ EOETABLE^GARDEN. — We hope soon
to have arrived at the most favorable
time of the season for seed sowing,
and upon the right use of it will de
pend, in a great measure,the success
of keeping up a plentiful supply of
vegetables for summer, fall and win
ter use. Those who have not yet
commenced to make hot beds for the
sowing of tomatoes, peppers, Ac.,
should lose no time in doing so, and
whenever the weather is favorable,
and the ground in good condition,'
preparation should be made for the
planting, sowing, Ac., of the main
ciops ot earl}' spring and summer
vegetables, much has been said of
artificial manures,of unfavorable sea
sons, blight, mildew, Ac. Hut we in
cline to think the grand secret lies in
the proper preparation of the soil,
more particularly in sub soil and ef
fective drainage. Manures of what
ever kind applied to land in an ill -
di ained condition, we think, is very
frequently the cause of disease, and
the crops become the prey of insects, i
Aywagus Beds.— Asparagus beds
should be lightly forked over and
dressed with salt,at the rate of about
one pound to the square yard—sow
seeds for new beds.
Cal/baye. —Crops of all kinds,unless
previously removed, will now begin
to cumber the ground, and should be
removed at once, if there is any fear
of the supply running short until spi
nach and kale comes in. Plant the
best < t the old stalks in a border bv
themselves, and they will produce a
few good dishes of tender greans—
Sow seeds of brnssel's sprouts, Scotch
kale, and savoy, for fall use. Sow
also early york and Winingstead cab
bage on a slight hot bed or warm bor
der. Soou as the ground is in good
condition plant out cabbage from the
fa ; l sown beds.
Cavlifloicers. —Caub'flowers under
glass, will be growing now that the
weather is milder. Remove the lights
in warm weather, and give thetn the
benefits of warm showers, but cover
up at night when there is any danger
of frost. Towards the end of the
month prepare to make plantations
of those which have been kept under
glass during the winter—transplant
those raised in heat in January and
February under. Sow as directed
for cabbage ; the early Paris for an
early crop has succeeded best with
Celery. —Transplant the early sown
into boxes, or on a slight hot bed,and
sow for succession ; the early white
and red solid we can recommend for
Lettuce. —'Towards the end of the
mouth, some of the b .-st plants that
have been wintered in covered frames
may be planted out upon a warm bor
der and others upon a more exposed
situation ; sow for succession. The
only kind we cultivate is the "Paris
Onions. —Sow the main crops as
early as the ground is in good condi
tion ; for very large ones we plant
the small bulbs of last year, or the
fall sown plants in very rich ground.
The "yellow Danvers" and large red
we are well satisfied with.
Potatoes. —Do not neglect to plant
for the principal crop early as the
ground is in good working order. We
prefer that the sets should be hard,
dark green ; and the sprouts (should
any have made their appearance) a
dark purple ; we cover about four
inches,so that the hoeiug and plough
ing between will add to the depth
about eight inches of soil.
Radish. —Sow upon a warm border
the early short top, and red turnip
Peas. —For tire first crop, sow the
Daniel O'ltourke, or Carter's "first
crop." If there is any fear of the seed
being attacked by the wire worm, it
is an excellent plan after they are
sown, and previous to covering them
up, to water them well with a solu
tion of spirits of tar, in the propor
tion of one pint to six gallons of wa
Rhubarb. —Rhubarb may now be
forwarded by placing hand-glasses,or
boxes over it, with a little manure
round the bottom to prevent the iu
gress of cold winds. This plant is
greatly benefitted by copious water
ing of liquid manure during dry
weather ; it delights in plenty of
moisture and good living, now is the
time to make new plantations ; choose
deep, rich soil, trench deep, manure
heavily, and plant good roots of good j
varieties, such as Myatt's Liuu<eus,or i
Salt's crimson perfection. We have i
on trial upon the following grounds, j
some twenty varieties,which we hope j
to report upon in due time.
Parsnip*. —Sow for the main crop '
on good, rich soil,early as the ground
is 111 good working order ; we believe
the old hollow crowned, or Guernsey,
to be the best yet.
Parsley. —A sowing of the doubled
curled should uow be made ; clean
and cultivate the ground well be
tween the rows planted last summer.
Spinach. —Sow ou rich soil for suc
cession the round-leaved ; cultivated
frequently between the rows to pre
vent the giowth of weeds, ami the
plants running to seed.
Preparation of Whitewash-
Whitewash is one of the most val
uable articles in the world when prop
erly applied. It prevents not only
the decay of wood, but conduces
greatly to the healthiness of all buil
dings, and fences whether of wood or
stone. Out buildings and fences,
when not painted, should be supplied
once or twice every year with a good
coat of whitewash, which should be
prepared in the following way :
Take a clean, water tight barrel, or
other suitable cask, and put into it
half a bushel of lime. Slake it by
pouring water over it, boiling hot,
and in sufficient quantity to cover it
five inches deep, and stir it briskly
till thoroughly slaked. When the
slaking has been effected, dissolve it
in water, and add two pounds of sul
phate of zinc,and one of common salt.
These will cause the wash to harden,
and prevent its cracking,which gives
an unseemenly appearance to the
work. If desirable, a beautiful cream
color may be communicated to the
above wash, by adding three pounds
of yellow ochre ; or a good pearl or
lead color, by the addition of lamp,
vine of ivory black. For fawn color,
add pounds of umber—Turkish or
American, the latter is the cheapest
—one pound Indian red, and one
pound common lampblack. For com
mon stone color add four pounds raw
uinber and two pounds lampblack.—
This wash may be applied with a
common whitewash brush, and will
be found much superior both in ap
pearance and durability, to common
ORNAMENT FOR THE PARLOR— An ex
change says : Suspend an acorn by a
cotton thread so as tS nearly touch
the water iu a glass vessel, a hya
cinth glass is perhaps the best ; set
upon the window or mantel, and let
it remain for eight weeks, more or
less, without being touched, except
to supply the evaporation of the wa
ter, and the acorn will burst, and as
it tLuows a root down into the water,
a spout or stem will shoot upward,
throwing out beautiful leaves, thus
giving you an oak tree in full life and
health within your parlor.
DUMPLIXGS WITH PORK.— Put on to
boil any required quantity of water,
put into it a lew slices of salt pork ;
to this add a quantity of potatoes.—
Let these boil a few minutes, then
drop into the mixture a few small
round dumplings made of raised
dough, season with pepper,and serve
immediately. If preferred, a small
piece of butter may be added.
APPLE PUDDING.— Six or seven large
sized apples, chopped fiue in a chop
ping tray—one quart of milk, four
eggs. Make a thin batter ; just be
fore putting iu the oven, add the ap
ples. Have a hot oven, and eat with
sauce, with a little brandy or wine
