AGRICIU T L.
A COMPOST FOR ORCHARDS AND
Take in the proportion of 20 double
holler elm loads of marsh mud, mould from
tart sikieds, scrapings from the roads, or
earth fibm the fence corners, 10 bushels
of as**. 19 bushels of soot, 10 bushels of
powdered charcoal, 2 bushels of salt, and
100 gallons of urine, either animal or hu
man, mix the /Wile w.tll together, form it
into pie, and let' it remain for four weeks.
At theexpiration of this time, turn it well
over, end as you do so mix in with the
mass 1 bushel of plaster. This done,
spread evenly over every acre of your or ,
chard 'lO double-horse cart loads of the
mixture, and plough it in about three inch
es deep, takingeare not to lacerate the roots
of the trees in so doing—then harroulihe'
Whole °vet; and compress the earth by,
running a roller over it.
To make an orchard boar well and pro ,
duce good fruit, it is just as necessary to
mannte and cultivate it, as it is to manure
and cultivate any other crop which is
grown, as every crop of apples, peaches or
pears, that is grown, extracts from the soil
certain portions of the mineral and nutri
tive. manures, which must be returned to it
by artificial. means to keep the soil in a
Piefieztuate of fertility to yield a good crop
of fruit. As the roots of fruit trees pene
trate the earth Much deeper than do those
of grain and grass :rope, the presumption
is that as the field of feeding of the flamer
is deeper titan the latter, that they may not
require attelt frequent manuring ; but it
must n'OtAiei keen - Med that they, therefore,
do not require any. An'application op
loads of compost, such as we have name
would answer every fourth or fifth year. .
The body of the trees, however, should be
washed every year with a weak solution
of potash, say I lb. of potash dissolved' in
2 gaileiti. s of ift into—Kir be painted with a
mixture; composed in the proportion of 1
gallon soft leap, 1 lb. flour of sulphur, and
I pint of salt. _ _
Neither Whea t ; Rye, Barley, Oats, or
any tifilitignuis crops, should be grown in
an orchard. . Potatoes, Turnips, or any
Other root crop requiring row culture said
manUrifigt, may, with decided advantage,
be ciil4V-ated therein, provided care - be
servedin the preparation of the soil and
subsequent suitnre of the crop, not to in
jure the roots cd• the trees. With such pr . , „.
eau tiou the cultivation of thasoil Kill port
of infloite benefit, as each stirring of the.
earth will increase its capacity for' attract
ing and condensing the enriching gases of
the dews and atmosphere, increase the'
feeding resources of the trees, and, as a
consequence, improve the size and quality
of thelfrait.---Ameriews Farmer. ,
New Roars SD OLD Tam.—Thu New
Light:id farmer mentions the fact theca:le
editor of that juutritil, basing some peer,
trees en quince stocks which were dying,
took adOzen pear stocks, two years old,
and partially removed the earth from about
the roots of six of the most sickly looking
trees, so as to titske room for the roots of
the young Pear stocks, placing one on each
of the opposite sides of the old trees. The
tops of the young• stocks were cut off by a
drawing stroke, making the taper about
”lI'D inches in length, as for splice grafting.
A horizontal cut was then made through
the bark of the tree just above its junction
tvithke . quince, and then an upward inci-
Illon in the bark of the desired length. E.
Hough o f the bark below the, horizontal cut
was removed to prevent its offering any
obstruction. The bark was then raised by
carefully passing a t h rre coraered wedge
up the incision. The tapered point of the
stock, prepared as above, was_ gently
crowded up till it felt firm in its place, and
Was bound up firmly with matting. The
corgi was then carefully covered over the
roots;and heaped up four or five incites a
hove, the,pleee of operation to exclude the
air. • The • result was highly satisfactory.

be used in trimming the branch into which
the bud is put, the latter will commence
growing in ten or twelve days, and a foot

the process of increment and induration,
or hardening, is consummated before the

My daughter, a girl of twelve years old, had
been afflicted with White Stivifiege, in one of her
legs, directly below the knee joint, for several
months, during which time her suflbrings have
been excruciating and deplorable. I called on a
Physician, who, during frequent vialte, made use
of every means in his power to omit the fell dm
stroyer, but all without effect. The leg continued
swelling, until it opened, forming various disa
greeable ulcers, rendering amputation necessary
unless immediate relief be had. Fortunately; how
ever, on the first day of December last, your agent
having been in our village; and hearing of the init
borings of my daughter, he sent me one bottle of
your Liniment, the use of which alone, thank Lind,
has not only arrested the further progress of the
disease, but has cured the leg perfectly, removing
all pains and swellings, and restored the leg to Its
