Cuts„,l'his,ris mach asany other crep,
delights in cleanliness, add exuberates most
under the genial infltrence of a warm sun
and a moist and well stirred earth. Let it
be our object then, to keep the soil.in sash
a condition as that it will, at all times, be a
ble to derive the greatest degree of benefit
from the rain as it may descend from heav
en, and be in a condition to drink in the
rich sources of food to be found in the
tnosphere and night distilling dews. In
preference to wasting your time and
strength, in making mound-like hills around
your corn, let it be your object to keep the
earth open; in preference to delving the
earth with the plough, and thereby cutting
up and injuring the roots of the corn, let it
be your pride to keep its mouths open by
the free use of the cultivator, from this pe
riod until you lay by your crop. And we
wish you to bear this in mind, that you
can do no possible injury to your corn by
working it in dry weather, provided you
use the implement just named, but on the
contrary esseutial service.
Ilev Atetso.--As soon 25 your grass
is fully in blossom, and before the ripening
1 ' of the seed, you should cut it: and in curing
your bay it should be your object to dry it
without exposure to the rain, and as little
as possibld to that of the sun. A. half day
in swarths, with good wind and tutor-will
be enough, when it should be cocked.—
Ilay cured in this way is greener, more
frsgrant, and we need not add, is eaten
with much greater avidity. in stacking
your hay do not omit to sprinkle a peek. of
salt over-every ton of it. ,
MILLET.—TIIOSB who may apprehend
a shortness of provender to carry them
through the coming winter and spring,
may aril themselves of sowing millet up
to the 10th of this . month, provided they
manure well to ensure prompt and condo
ned growth to the plauts. It bears the
drought well, but cannot bear a stinted diet.
Ilucawit EAT.—In [hitt grain the farmer
has a resottece to eke out his fodder and
hay. If cut when in blossom, properly
dried and stacked away with a peck of salt
to the ton, it will make a hay which will
be well relished in winter by his cows and
working oxen. Though not as good as
clover, herds grass, timothy or millet hay,
it is better than that cut from salt marshes,
is au excellent promoter of milk, and if cut
and mixed with bran or meal of any kind,
will prove a highly nourishing food. For
grain it may be sown any time up to the
10th of the month. If sown with this ob
jeet, as soon as cured the grain should be
thrashed out and the straw packed away
as above directed for cattle proveuder.—
For boy. or for ploughing in, it may be
sown as late as the 20th of the month.—
Whether sown (or either purpose, it Would
be well to sow a bushel of plaster to the a
rils. While the plaster would promote
the growth of the plant, it would tend to

The extraordinsry and well authentica
ted cures wrought by the celebrated Sugar
Coatetl•Pills, or Dr. Sinith's Improved In
dien VegskablePills, have naturally drawn
puldie attention to them. Perhaps in the
history of Medicine, frogs the time of Hip
pocrates to the present day, there is no ev
idence of 4, 41a1C411 compound obtaining
equal celebrity in so shorka time, There
was never a medicine recommended by
such high authority as Dr. Smith's Pills.
Besides their great curative properties,
(possessing as they _do, such astonishing
curative powers to. open all the natural
! , imitif i ef - the body, viz.: the LungS; Kid
, Skin and Bowels,) they are, unlike
ail other pills, extremely pleasant, being
coated with sugar, and as they do not gripe,
nor produce nausea, or any other implem
ent consequences, they.have become very
popular for Dytipepsia, Headache, Costive
ness, Bilious Complaints, Foul Stomach,
Fevers, Worths Want of Appetite, Impu
rities of the Blo od,: Obstructions and Fe
male Complaints generally, Colds, &c.—
One of the most influential and benevolent
ladies in New York, Mrs. S. A. Gould,
Matron of the U. S. Naval Hospital, says
"there is no medicine within her knowl
edge so well adapted to the numerous ail
ments of mankind, as Dr. Smith's Sugar
Coated Pills." She especially recom
mends them to ladies. Read her certificate
in the pamphlet.
