had vanished. I know not what I said, but for

A very great improvement in the agricul
ture • of our country, which will be generally
adopted from the practice of the Old World,
is "Drainage." In almost every State ex
tensive tracts of swamp-lands aro found, not
only unfit for cultivation,' but, in many in
stances, by reason of noxious effluvia - arising
from stagnant water, they are prejudicial to
health. Largo grants of these lands have been
made by Congress,DOra the public domain,
gratuitously, to the States in which they lie,
upon the idea that they "were not only worth
less to the Government, but-dangerous-to the
health of, the neighboring inhabitants, .with
the 'hope that .thti state Governments might
-take measures to reclaim them for cultivation,
or, at least, render them harmless, by, the re
moval of their surplus water.
It is' ascertained, - by inquiry at the Land
Office, tthatmore than 52,000,000 acres of
swamp and that,
lands have been selected
under the acts of March 2d, 1849, and Sep
feinber 28th, 1850, from the dates of those
grants to September, 1856; and it is estimated
that; when the grants shall have been sttirely
adjusted, they will amount to 60m00,000 acres.
Governor Wright, of Indiana, In a public
address ' estimated the marshy lands of' that
State at 2,000,000 acres. "These lands," he
say,S, "were generally avoided by early set
tlers, as being comparatively worthless; but,
when drained, they become eminently - fertile."
Ile further says: "I know a farm of one hun
dred' and sixty acres, which was sold five
years ago 'for $5OO, that by an expenditure of
less than $2OO, in draining and ditching, has
' been so improved, that the owner has refused
for it an offer of $3,000."
At the meeting of the United States Agri
cultural Society, at Washington, in January,
1657, Mr. G. W. P. Castle spoke, in connec
tion with Abe great importance of this,sub
ject, of the vast quantities of soil—the richest
conceivable—now lying waste ' to thneittent
_acres, Mang, the banks of the
Lower Potomac, and which he denominates
by the 618 Virginia title of potoson. The fer
tility of. this reclaimable swamp he reports to
be astonishing; and he bas corroborated the
'"opinion by experiments which confounded
every beholder. "These lands on our time
honored river," ho says, "if broUght into
use, world 'ttepply. provisions - at half the
present cost, and Would, in 'other respects,
prove of the greatest advantage."
In the Southern States, we have extensive
tracts of swamps, inaccessible to all but alli
gators, Indians, and' ftigitives, which' render,
at certain seasons, the very air of,healen pes
tilential. In the New England States, also, in
every county, there is a 'considerable propor
tion of bogs and wet meadows; among °Ur
almost barren hills; into which 'the. , uplands
have for.centuries Poured. treasures pf
ziug-elements, but which are given- °vet to
desolation by reason'of too much cold water.
Again, all, our Atlantic coast, and Ihr
, np the navigable rivers, are vastfracte of salt
marshes, or flat-lands, abounding in fertility,
overflowed, qcime of them regularly, and others
occasionally, •by, the ocean. tides. These
marshes, with some costof ditching; produce
what is called "salt-hay," which la cut with
great labOr at low tides; and generall)r stacked
where it groWs, upon stakes driven for the pur
pose. It is valued and usually sold at about
half the price of the best upland meadow-hay,
, and mixed:with other fodder, is eaten by cat
' tle 'which can get nothing bettet; abd.some 7
times' by way of a eondiment even by cattle
that aro, well fed. It has been doubted by
• many, - whether, this-salt-hay is welt(' the Cost
of cutting, or; in other words; whether the la
bor requisite to ditch the truirsheS, and cat;
cure, and bald the hay, could pot be'more pro
fitably applied to other branches of Jim labor.
. By - Many eliporintents; on a, small sdale, in this
country, it , has, been proVed that these salt
marsh lands, aft-0 thn,tidealiaire bedn kept out
' ortheni a few years, arenxtremelyeerille,and,
beteg free from stelaea and other obstructions,
are easily cultivated,: and ao'arelikdly, - when a•

to our farmers upon the oceitii'sheres.--
Along our rivers and streams, in every part
of the country, are large tracts of low, flat
lands, flooded in times of freshets, and at all
times tilled with cold or • stagnant water, and
are nearly or quite unproductive. In New
England, on almost all the streams, and at the
outlets - of the lakes and ponds, are,daras, for
the use of sawmills, gristmills, and factories t
and the interior lakes arc ,used as reservoirs to
keep back water for the, use of the mills in time
of drought. By these obstructions to the na
tural flow of the streams, thousands of acres of
the most valuable lauds in this sectiou aro ren
dered- worse than tideless ; for the water is kept
up till•midsunitnet, and' drawn off when a dog-
day. climate is just ready to convert, the rich
and slimy sediment of the pond into' pestilen
tial' vapors. This same evil has attracted at
tention itiScothuid. "In many palls of this
country," says a Scottish writer, "small lochs
(lakes) and dams are kept up for the sake of
mills under old tenures, which, if drained, the
land-gained by that operation, would, in many
instances, be worth ton times the rent of such
ponds and stagnant mea
doWs, might all be drained, and afford vast
tracts of easy and fertile lands,
equal to the
bottom-lands of the West; and they are right
by; doors of young men who leave sheir
homes with regret, because the rich land of
far-off now States offers temptations which
their native soil cannot present.' Now, while
we should never advoeate any attack upon the
rights of mill-owners, or ask them to sacrifice
their interest to those of agriculture, it surely
is proper to call attention to the injury whick
the productive capacity of the soil is suffering,
by the flooding of, our best tracts, in sections
of the country where land is most valuable.
Could not the mill-owners, in many instances,
adopt ate= instead of water-power, and, be
coming. land-draining companies, instead of
land-drowning companies, at least let Nature
have free' course with' her gently-flowing riv
ers, and allow the promise to be fulfilled, that
the earth shall be no more cursed with a flood ?
; per the' reclaiming of salt-marshes and of
- flats npon,our rivers, as Well as for the draining
of lakes and ponds, a thorough 'knowledge, of
the proper - methods of constructing embank
ments is requisite. This belongs, however, to
a branch of the science of engineering, above
the practice of , the common agriculturist, and
beyond the scope:of the design of this article.
To show • the practicability of, condneting
operations of draining, not only ormarshes,
but even - of extensive lakes, in such manner
as to- repay,hy the land reclaimed, the ex
penses of the process, no ,better Illustration
is' required than the draining of Haarlem

in the oonstruotion of this Road, and are among the
richest and moat fertile In the world. They extend
from North-East and North-West, through the middle
of the State, to the extreme South, and include every
variety of climate ami productions found between those
parallels of latif.Ude. The Northern portion is chiefly
prairie, interspersed with fine groves, and in the middle
and Southern sections timber predominates , alternating
with beautiful prairies and openings.
The climate is more healthy, mild and equable, than
any other part of the country—the air is pure and bra

Bituminous Coal is extensively mined and supplies a
cheap and desirable fuel, being furnished at many
points at $2 to $4 per ton—and wood can be had at the
same rate per cord.
Building Stone of excellent quality ales abounds,
which can be procured for little more than the expense
The great fertility of these lands, which area black
rich mould, from two to five feet deep, and gently roll
log; their contiguity to this road, by which every tad
lity is tarnished for travel and transportation to the
principal markets North, South, East, Vi'est, and the
economy with which they can be cultivated, render
them the most valuable Investment that can be found,
and present the most favorable opportunity for persons
of industrious habits and small means to acquire a com
fortable independence Ina few years.
Chicago is now the greatest gram market in the world;
and the facility and economy with which the products
of these lands can bo transported to that market, make
them much more profitable, at the prices asked, than
those more remote at government rates, as the addi
tional cost of transportation is a perpetual tax on the
latter, which moat be borne by the producer, in the re
duced prim: he receives for his grain, ha.

The prices are from $6 to $2O: interest only 3 per ct.
Twenty per ot. will be deducted from the price for cash.

best seen in the rich and highly cultivated district
which has been Improved, almost made, by their use;
but It may be interesting to examine the causes of their
great value in Agriculture, and to compare them with

be taken at an average of five per cent. of ttio whole
weight of Marl, a bushel when dry weighing eighty
pounds, and in the proportion mentioned nould contain
four pounds of potash; this Is nearly as much no there

it isprobable that the great value of the Mart is to ho
