BLOOMSBURG,:::::::: : : PfiNN'A.
Department.
New Rochclle, or I,avion Blackberry.
We copy from the Horticulluralist the
following account of the productiveness of
this celebrated Iruit. It is one of the many
striking instances, where money is to be
made by farmers varying from their regu
lar routine of culture, and growing, to a
moderate extent at least, some other crop
than corn, oats and wheat potatoes especial
ly where they reside within reach ol a good
market like Philadelphia.
"Early in the month of August, by invi
tation from Mr. Seymour, when the berries
were in their prime, ivc saw the nursery,
and sufficiently to show that the Lawton
blackberry is among the most valuable va
rieties of fruit. The ground thus devoted is
less than two aud a half acres; from tlrs
ground Mr. Seymour was sending to market
daily, an average of upwards of ten bushels,
lie had been picking nine days, and the
aggregate amount to tho period of our visit
was one hundred and six bushels. Single
hills of some three or four canes, in many
instances yielded a bushel each. One day,
during the season, nineteen bu-hels were
picked. Tho picking is done almost ex
clusive by boys; eight being employed.—
Most of tho berries aro produced from a
field separate from the nursery, half of an
acre being devoted to tho fruit in tho nur
sery; ami here most of our observations
were made. This half an acre, which is
understood to have received the same cul
ture as bestowed upon tho rest of the plan
tation, had already produced sopio thirty
bushels; and probably at least twenty five
bushels remain to l e gathered. This is at
the rate of some sixty bushels to the aere.—
Many good judges who have visited tho
nursery, placed the estimate even higher
than this, lint any reasonable fruit-grower,
might be satisfied with a yield of sixty bush
els of blackberries, — smh blackberries,
larger, fairer, better flavored than the natur
al ft nit— from an acre of ground.
"But docs not this result involve a larger
expenditure in cultivation and harvesting?"
inquires some one.
Definite information on this point, obtain
ed from Mr. S., proves that the entire ex
pense of lite culture of an acre, afer the
ground has been properly prepared the first
year, fall below fifty dollars, and the expense
of picking is but a trifle over one cent a
quart. Mr. S. employed his boys by the
day, paying them fifty cents each. They
have averaged, during the season; from
forty to fifty quarts each a day Tlte ber
ries command a ready market at twenty
five cents a quart, wholesale. The com
mission for selling is one per cent, or one
cent for four quarts. The expense of trans
portation from Norwalk to NewYoak, some
forty miles, about tho sainc.
These aro the facts in regard to the cul
ture of tho Lawton blackberry. What has
been stated 011 this subject, hitherto, lias
mainly been theoretical we aro now able
to state from actual inspection not only
what tho blackberry is cnpablo of doing,
anil what it probably will do, but what it
has done, and what if is doing. Tito yield
from the two acres and three quarters cul
tivated by Air. Seymour, cannot bo accu
rately arrived at in season for the present
number. But if, when the crop is harvest
ed, it fails of reaching two hundred bushels,
we shall be obliged to confess, that tlte
means of forming a correct estimate, obser
vations have led us astray.
Mr. S. lias produced some twenty bar
rels of wine from tho blackberry this season,
which commands a ready market at a great
er profit than is reaized from the sale of 1110
berries.
Cut and Incut I'ocd for Cattle. •
In no instance where an experiment lias
been made in feeding cut hay, straw or
corn fodder, has it proved disadvantages,
but on tho contrary, has proved its econmy
and advantage. There are many reasons
for this
An animal especially a working animal,
is saved much of the labor of masticating its
food, by being cut, and therefore, having
more timo to rest. This is a great advan
tage where the horse is already overworked,
having barely lime to bolt down his food
before ho is again hitched to the plow. In
the larger cities whore the omnibus lines
and city cars employ a great many horses
no hay is fed whole, but all cut up with
machines worked by horse or steam power
Experiments and trials conducted fairly by
the proprietors of those lines, have proved
satisfactorily llio great saving, and that hay
fed whole is wasteful management. By
feeding cut food there is no waste, by hav
ing tho hay or straw dragging under tho
feet of the cattle, as is often the case, wast
ing about 0110 half. Cut food is much eas
ier digested from tho fact that it presents
more points to tho gastric juice of the stom
ach, also reducing the food in bulk. Feed
ing corn fodder in an open barn yard, at all
limes and seasons of tho year, is indeed
wasting at least one half. Tho stock only
picking o(Tthe leaves, leaving the entire
stalk to waste, which in fact contains far
moro nourishment than the leaves. The
leaves being thin and light, at best can con
tain but little of the juice, while the stalk
having a strong coating on the outside, pre
vents the juice in a great measure from dry
ing out and evaporating, the juice in the
stalk gradually working itself into the form
of sugar. (This fact can easily to proved
by crushing and pressing tho stalk,) by
cutting and crushing the whole of tho stalk,
is converted into soli and nutritious food.

AN editor in lowa has become so hollow
from depending upon the printing business
for bread, that he proposes to sell himself
for stovepipe at three cents a foot.

HEADING. March 4ih.
The undersigned, members ot die Commit

two Safes originally agreed upon by F'arrels
ft Herring and Evans &. Watson, placed side
by side in a furnace, viz: The Sale in ne by
the Paymaster of the Philadelphia and Head
ing Kuilrmid Company, in his ollice at Head
| ing, manufactured by Farrels k Herring, and
the Safe in use by 11. A. Lantz, in his store,
manufactured by Evans & Watson, and put
in bonks and papers precisely alike.
The tire was started at 81 o'clock, A. M.,
and kept up until four cords of green hickory,
two cords dry oak and half chestnut trip wood
were entirely consumed, the whole under
tho superintendence of the subscribers, mem
bers ot the Committee. The Safes were then
cooled oil wi h water, after which they wete
opened, agd the books and pnpers'taken out
by the Committee and sent to 11. A._LaiPz's
store for public examination, afier they were
first examined and marked by the Commit
lee. The honks and papers taken Ironri the
Safe manufactured by Evans k Watson were
but slightly affected by the intense heal,
while ihnse taken from the Safe manufac
tured by Farrels & Herring were, in ourjuttg

than those taken from Flvuns k Watson's

I JAHHKTT, OF THE NEW YOUK LUNG
j INFIRMARY.—My connectiou fir the past
e ghl years with the above Institution, as
| Chief Physician, and a twelve years' course
i of steady devotion to the Cure of Pulmonary
I Consumption and its kindred disease, logeth
| er with my unrivalled opportunities and ad
j vantages ol pathological researches—aided
| not a hole by a perfect system of Mcbical In
halation—has enabled me to arrive at a de
j cisive, direct, and successful course of treat
| meat fur tho positive and radical cure of all
diseases of Hie Throat, Langs, and Air-Pas
sapci. By Inhalaiicm, the vapor and curative
properties ol medicines are di'eetly address
ed to the diseased organs and the integument.
1 do not advise the use of medical Inhalation
of any kind, to lite exclusion of general heat
meat; and although I consider it a useful ad
juvant in the proper management of those
tearful and often fatal diseases, yet I deem it
very necessary that each pa'ient should have
ihe benefit of both gsneiut and local treat*
meat. The success of rhy treatment in Ihe
above diseases, and in the high character of
the Insiituliou over which 1 have so long had
the honor to preside, are too well known to
need any eulogy ot comment from me. At
the solicitation ol many private and profes
sioial friends, through whose philanthropic
aid the above charity has been long and lib
erally supported, and alter due consideration,
1 have concluded lo make such arrangements
ae will bring the beuefits of my experience
and treatment within the reach of all, and not
confine myself, as heretofore, to those only
who entered the Infirmary, or who were able
lo visit trie at my office. Hoping iherelora
that the arrangement will give entire satisfuc
tiou, both lo my professional bretliern and
the public, I would respectfully announce in
conclnsion that lean be consulted personally or
by titter, oil ell ill-eases as above, ami thai ihe
medicines, the same us used in lite Institution
brepared to suit each individual case. In
haling vapors, Medical Inhales, kc. ka. will be
forwarded by express to any part of the Uni
j ted States or Canadas. TERMS —My terms of
treatment by letter are as Ibllows, viz.: $l2
permonlh lor each patient, which will include
medicine sufficient for one month's use; al
so, Inhaling Vapor, and an Inhaling Apparat
us. Pay meats as follows : $6 lo paid lo Ex
press Agent on receipt oi lite box of Medi
cine, und the balunce $6 at Ilia expiration of
the month, if the patient is cured or is entire
ly satisfied widi the treatment. Patients, by
giving a lull hisiory of their case, and their
symptoms in full, eau be treated as well by
letter us by personal examination. Patients
availing themselves of Dr. Jurrett's treat
ment may rely upon immediate and perma
nent relief, as he seldom has lo treat a case
over thirty days. Letters of advice promptly
answered. For fiilher paoiicttlurs address.
