Renovation of wormoat Land.
rout sarron or THE AMERICAN FARMER.
Laurel Fartorv, (Ma.) March 29, 1847.
• 14,11430111; I have frequent letters from
different parts of this State and Virginia,
se.iiips,tay experience as to die effects of
difflorent manures, particularly guano, and
of 'my success in renovating these worn
out the modus operands, &c. Now,
my arming operations being quite a sec
ondary consideration in my general busi
miss, I Minot spare the time from my oth
er ttecepations to answer in detail these
various communications, and therefore
have concluded to,gply to them generally
through your valuable paper, and hope it
Moly reach through this channel every one
. °tiny correspondents. -For to this paper,
and other agricultural publications, togeth

Yon know my whereabouts in this de
seri of old fields, gullies, and poverty grass,
and are well acquainted (as who, is not,
who has ever travelled from the city of
Baltimore to the seat of Government!)
with the total barrenness of the land gen
erally: I therefore need say but little on'
the general character of the land to start
with, and will begin by giving the reasons
for my first attempting, what appeared at
that time a Ilerculean task, the renovation
of these barren old fields.
Having been reared amid the green Beide
and lowing herds in one of the most fertile
regions in the State of New York, I could
not look upon the barren face of this coun
try without its producing a feeling of mel
ancholy. I came to the conclusion it
would never do for me to ,plant myself
down here with the expectation of making
ita permanent residence with such a pros-
Peet ,always before mc. I therefore re
solved either to change the general aspect
of the country in this respect, or leave-it.-
The &rater appearing the most feasible, I
matte the effort, and I have the satisfaction
to say that, as far as the vision extend.
irom•lay resideaca, I have succeeded.
This country, with all its faults, has re
deeming qualities. Favored with Heav
en's greatest blessings, universal health
and a never-failing supply of the purest
spring water, with a soil possessing .natii
rallithe elements of fertility, a_lmatinitul
rolling surface covered with clamps of
tretariWitleb, for richness and variety of
foliage, and beauty of proportions, for
landscape or lawn purposes, cannot' be
surpassed in the world, it is not indebted
to Heaven for its liirbidden appearance,
but to that reckless system of cultivation

'There arer two ways, Mr. Editor, of 14-
learning these old fields ; one I see recoin
mended frequently in your very valuable
worle;,that is to sow broadcast over the
laud some five bnshels of ashes with 'il
'bushel of plaster per acre, .to be followed
by ploughtagin of green erops,ler,e. Now

;Another plan is to go at it Taylor fash 7

wnside of thisliater plan, I will give you
site resultf en experiment made lust year
upon one of these "old fields," and I taka

trees tker was one lot which lay iu upon
thertands I had already improved in such
manner as to injure the appearance of the
whole, In the spring of 1840 I resolved
to mike' inattack -upon this old field ; and
to satisfy myself still further of the cost
4f.iiiieh improvement, I had it surveyed
and platted by a regular surveyor, and
found the contents to be 27 acres, out of
which them was, taken, for a house, lot,
' and road, one acre, leaving twenty-six acres
to,bertultivated. This field was tenanted
out In the" year 1845 to a very worthy
Idien; l who cultivated it in corn, and I have
hiq ward that the product (and I am sure
sopereett who saw the crop growing will
overthiah of questioning the amount) was
twent.pave bushels of nubbins, or less

by,the way, is about the character of many

I sat dean" upon the spur of the mo

answer sundry communications on the
subject of farming, which I really could

I am fearful the perusal of this will be
found tedious. Should it be otherwise,
having cleared away the brush and started
the plough, I may at same leisure moment
give you some further pickings from my
memoranda of experiments, and perhaps
a description of some of my stock of De
von. and Durham's, of which I have a fair
specimen of the purest blood in this coun
Let all new beginners keep in view 'the
following axioms in fanning: Drain your
lands well ; plough deep and at the proper
time I pulverize the soil well by ted
ploughing, harrowing, and rolling; put on
plenty of manure, no matter what it be—
every thing in that shape you can scrape
up, buy, borrow, or beg ; do not spare the
seed, 'and be prodigal in grass seeds; be
careful and ascertain, by observation, the
proper time and proper manner of putting
them on the ground, (for one is as imFort
ant as the other,) and old Zags: himself is
not more sure of success.

with so many mules, herself, and horned
cattle ! They all produie something- T
mules are employed in hauling wood, the.

Dear Sir,—At your request I cheerful-
ly give you an account of the wonderful
cure effected upon tme by Dr.. Cullen's In
dian Vegetable Panacea. At the age of
fourteen years I had upon my right knee
a White Swelling, which stiffened the
joint, and caused some seventy or more
pieces of the hone to come away in the
sores, and which was temporarily relieved
by thl remedies, but not entirely cu
red. At ti es sores would again break
out, and bec the so distressing and painful
that I could get uo rest night nor day. In
this way it continued till last spring, when,
having witnessed the extraordinaryeffects
of your Panacea, as an alterative, upon a
a daughter of mine who was using it for a
elirouic4ilense, I concluded to make a tri
al of it in My own case; the result has
been an entire cure. lam now sixty-sev

have heard, of the cures performed by your

To whom it may concern.—This may
certify that my Odd, almost from birth *
was afflicted with Scrofula, which covered
most of its bodies with sores; and that for
eighteen months, though commonly under
medical treatment, nothing afforded relief
till I was induced to make a trial of Dr.
Cullen's Indian Vegetable Panacea. The
attending physician, on witnessing itsgrood
effects, recommended its continuance ac
according to directions, and by using a
single bottle of the Panacea, the child was
apparently cured. It is now about four
months since the medicine was discontin
ued, and I hate no doubt but the cure is
complete. Y ours truly,
