From the American Fanner
TIME TO CUT WHEAT:-
The proper time to cut is, *hen the
atom, just below the head, becomes dry,
and the sources of nutritive supply from
the roots are thereby cutoff. By waiting
until •the estire stem is dry, great losses are
sustained from shattering, while, on the
giber — hintt; Rio "adian~gt` is - to - be — derived
to the kernels. Thai this it the case, is so
obvious, that we need scarcely illwitrate it
by argument, and will content ourselves by
remarking, that when the extremity of the
stem becomes arid, that the circulation
from below ii arrested in its course, and
the process of nutrition cannot be carried
on, as At that point, the conduit is literally
'cut off. It is worthy of an observation,
that wheat, when cut before it becomes
dead ripe. yields a heavier grain and whi
ter and more productive Bower than when
harvested at a later period. What we
mean by -more productive flour, is this,
that it will , take - more water, and 'conse
quently make more bread. By cutting
wheat at, the period we have named, the
straw is infinitely bettor adapted to the
purpoit of feeding, much of its not:ilia
properties being routined, whteh, when cut
ate later period, would be lost by evapo
We would iterate our advice that all
possible care be taken to protect the grain
and straw, after it is down, from the influ
ence of the weather, as we know froro
perience that nested at*i Period Is . cal- .
__impair the sightly appearance;
as wallas the market value of the grain.
In sticking let the utmost care be taken to
exclude the possibility of injury from the
rains, and to ensure this, each stark should
be capped. so as to turn the rain. And we
would here remark, that, White every op
eration of the harvest is going on, the mas
ter's presence is indispensably necessary—
dial, though he may not labor himself, his
presence will tend to make his hands do
their work in the way that it should be
done. The best of hands, if not closely
superintended by those whose interest is
at stake, will, without intending it, slight
their work, and inflict injuries without de
signing them, Unfortunately it is the na
ture of most men to act thus, and although
we would not punish a natural fault, we
certainly would so act as to ensure against
it. Bear in mind that he who encounters
the - wil and expense necessary to make a
crop, rests under a high, moral obligation
to preserve it from going to waste.
fdasantra.—The English' Gardener's
Almanac for 1844 says that in 1837.2254,-
000. worth Of bones were imported into
England, and the quaitiity is ~annu~lly'in=
creasing. Of woolen rags, from 1836 to
1842, over 7,050 tons. or 1,101 tons an
nually, were imported,and used chiefly by
hop growers, although excellent also as a
general manure. In England, with a ter
r:try but little larger than the State of N.
York, 10,000,000 of catile and 44,000,000
sheep are kept advantageously. With the
manure imported and secured at home by
these means, and a system of careful cul
ture, there are raised annually, when fa
vored with ordinary seasons, 232,000,000
bushels of grain. Whitt a lesson to the
farmers of the U. States.

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
Philadelphia, Dec. 4,1847.
Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for
the benefit experienced by- the use of Thomson's
Compound Syrup of Tar, and that others whe,
like me, have languished through years of affliction

make the following statement.
About four years since, alter being affected with

long period, language fails to tell what I have sub

mark a severe pulmonary affection. The relief

time, I am satisfied that my complaint is entirely
removed and eradicated.

a great many articles which were recommended
to her by her lrisods, but withont receiving the
beucfiu tram any of them ; her cough was getting
worse every day; her appetite was fast bilis.
and to sleep was imposibe: the pales in her

had to go to bed, and my friends advised me to
call in a Physician. 1 thought I would sill in

great opposition on the part of some of Is
