CLEANING LANDS OF - WENDS.—The principal
objects in the cultivation of growing crops ap
pear to he
Ist. The destruction of weeds, or in other
words, the preventing of all growth but that of
tae crop itself.
2d. Keeping the soil in the most favorable
condition for the support of the plants.
No person who has cultivated even a " gar
den spot" of land, can fail to be impressed with
the idea of the injuriousness of weeds to all
cultivated crops. Weeds are hurtful in Torii:ids
ways, and crops of all kinds feel severely the
effects of a preponderance of the intruders.—
Not only does the present crop suffer from the
effects of weeds, but unless they are in some
way eradicated,subsequent crops will find them
selves beset with the same enemy, which. not
only injures the crop, but causes a continual
exhaustion of the soil for which the husband
man receives no recompense.
Weeds in their early growth take little but
water from the soil, but this is not entirely in
significant, as it may be needed by the growing
crop. But soon they demand more precious
elements, using up the very food necessary for
the development of the crop. The actual food
required to sustain a vigorous weed, would de
velop and mature a stock of corn, and as both
cannot at the same time employ the same ele
ments, it is obvious that one or the other must
be discountenanced, and when it is remembered
that nothing grows without feeding, the im
portance of feeding nothing worthless will at
once be seen.
Weeds also prove themselves very injurious
crowding the growing crop, and in this way
causing the crop to shoot up slender and weak
in its struggles for light and air, making the
*ants tender and unable to withstand the wind
and rain, and rendering the product much less
than it would be under more favorable circum
is of the utmost importance, therefore, to
pevent the growth of weeds, as far as may be,
and in. order to do this, we must either prevent
their germination, or destroy them as soon as
they make their appearance. Weeds will con
tinue to multiply as long as they are left to go
to seed ; one solitary weed left in a lot to seed
is sure to show itself in succeeding years, and
if the lot is left thus for a few years, it will be
incapable of producing anything but these
"pests of the farm."
There are many ways, generally unnoticed
or unthought of at the time, in which weeds are
disseminated over a farm, before the occupant
is really aware ef their intrusion. Some farm
ers will allow a hedge-row of weeds to grow
untouched around their walls and fences, and
as a natural result the land soon becomes un
productive of anything but weeds. Some will
allow weeds to actually go to seed within their
manure yards,and in this way the seed is carted
to every lot on the farm, to reproduce its kind
there, and so seriously to the detriment of the
farm and the interest of the farmer. It is a fact
that the permanent rooted weeds will retain
their vitality for years in a manure heap ;
therefore it is important that a manure heap
should be kept clear from weeds. Yet I have
seen, within a few days, a large pile of muck
calenlated for manure, actually covered with
thistles, eoltsfoot, and other weeds so detrimen
tal to the interests of the farmer. Such a course
will eventually deteriorate a farm and conse
quently injure the farmer. Indeed it may be
accepted as a rule, that foul land is an infalli
ble sign of a lack of skill ind energy on the
part of the owner or cultivator.
Now the plan of destroying weeds is very
simple if correctly attended to, and done in
season_ It must commence at the fountain
head, by first stopping the growth and dissemi
nation of the seed. After which we must work
diligently for the extirpation of what seed is
already diffused through our fields, being care
ful, at the same time, not to introduce any
more by any careless or accidental process. I
have known of farmers sowing with their oats,
er other grain, " foul seed," which it would
take years to extirpate. In the section of coun
try where I reside, but a few years since, it
was very seldom that the Canada thistle was
seen. Now most of the farmers have their
patch of this pest, whereas if they had been
checked in season.no vrious results would have
been experienced; but they have now made
such inroads upon us, that much expense must
be incurred in their extirpation ; but it must
be done, and the sooner the better. Almost
every field in Connecticut has its charlock, yet
farmers persist in sowing it with their grain,
and I know of some fields, otherwise valuable,
rendered comparatively useless for many crops.
on account of the very seed the farmers thus
earelessly allow to be sowed with their grain.
No perennial rooted plant of any description
can preserve its vitality for two or three years,
if subjected to continual decapitation, no mat
ter how favorable the soil or seasons. The root
exists and sends out young shoots, which in
time become strong like the parent, only by
means of its foliage being exposed to the at
mosphere. If this is continually cut off, the
root naturally dies.
Where land has become very much seeded
with annual weeds, they can be disposed of by
two or three years of plowing, repeated as often
as the weeds get well started. They can be
killed in this way by a germination of all
the weed seed, leaving the soil pure and natu
One of the greatest obstacles to clean farm
ing, is found in the shortness of the period in
which a rotation of crops transpires. Lengthen
this period by the introduction of root- crops, or
some others heretofore neglected, add to this
clean cultivation while under the hoe, and you
introduce the desideratum which will give a
new impetus tuthe husbandman,which will ena
ble him to pursue the business of his calling wi . h
respect to himself, and honor to the community
in which he resides—Correspondence of Boston
SALT AND Irs OFFICES.—Some modern agricul
tural writers have doubted the necessity of
giving animals salt. The following remarks
as to the effect of salt upon health, by Prof.
James F. Johnston, of Scotland,may be relished
by those who still put salt in their own pud
dings, and allow their cattle a little now and
"The wild buffalo frequents the salt-licks of
Northwestern America; the wild animals in the
central parts of Southern Africa are a sure
prey to the hunter, who conceals himself be
hind a salt spring ; and our domestic cattle
ran peacefully to the hand that offers them a
taste of this delicious luxury. From time imme
morial it has been known that without salt man
would miserably perish; and among horrible
punishments, entailing certain death, that of
feeding culprits on saltless food is said to have
prevailed in barbarous limes. Maggots and
corruption are spoken of by ancient writers as
the distressing symptoms which saltless food
engenders ; but no ancient or nnchemical
modern, could expla in how such sufferings
arose. Now we know why the animal craves
salt; wby it suffers discomfort, and why it. ul
timately falls into disease if salt is for a time
withheld. .-Upwards of half the saline matter
of the blood (57 per cent.,) consists of common
salt; and as this is partly discharged every
day through the skin and the kidneys, the ne
cessity of continued supplies of it to the healthy
body becomes sufficiently obvious. The bile
also contains soda as a special and indispensa
ble constituent, and so do all the cartilages of
the bo Iy. Stint the supply of salt, therefore,
and neither will the bile be able properly to
assist the digestion, nor the cartilages to be
built wp again as fast as they naturally waste."

is familiar in every part of this country for the purity
of his celebrated SCHIEDAM SOHAPPS. Mr. Wol.ss, in
his letter to me, speaking of the purity of his WIN ES
and LIQUORS, says : I will stake my reputation as a
man, my standing as a merchant of thirty years' resi
dence in the City of New York, that all the BRANDY and
Winne which I bottle are pure as imported, and Sf the
best quality, and can be relied upon by every purehase k ot

public are respectfully invited to call and examine for
themselves. For sale at RETAIL by all Apothecaries and

Read the following from the New York Courier:
Enormous BUSINESS FOR ONE NEW YOKE MERCHANT,-
We are happy to inform our fellow-citizens that them is
one place in our city -where the physician, apothecary,
and country merchant, can go and purchase pure Wines
and Liquors, as pure as imported, and of the best quality,
We do not intend to give an elaborate description of this
merchant's extensive business, although it will well re
pay any stranger or citizen to visit UDOLPHO WOLFE'S
extensive warehouse, Nos. 18, 20 and 22, Beaver street,
and Nos 17, 19 and 21, Marketfield street. His stock of
fichnapps on hand ready for shipment could not have
been less than thirty thousand eases; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of 1836 to 1856; and ten
thousand cases of Madeira, Sherry and Port Wines,
Scotch and Irish Whisky, Jamaica and St. Croix Rum,
some very old and equal to any in this country. He also
had three large cellars, filled with Brandy, Wines, &c,
in casks, under Custom-House key, ready for bottling.
Mr. WOLFE'S sales of Schnapps last year amounted to
one hundred and eighty thousand dozen, and we hope in
less than two years he may be equally successf with
his Brandies and Wines.
WS business merits the patronage of every lover of
his species. Private families who wish pure Wines and
Liquors for medical use should send their orders direct
to Mr. WOLFE, until every Apothecary in the land make
up their minds to discard the poisonous stuff from their
shelves, and replace it with WoLows pure Wilms and
We understand Mr. Worm; for the accommodation of
small dealers in the country, puts up assorted cases of
Wines and Liquors. Such a man, and such a merchant,
should be sustained against his tens of thousands of op•
ponents in the United States, who sell nothing but tint
tations, ruinous alike to human health and happiness.
