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 at 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.

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. ItcpThe genuine Pills are for sale in Gettysburg, by S. If. Buehler and S.
