[Prop the YilaxAnchusetta Ploughman
,Tl.te„we of this fly are usually ten in
number, brown, and about the size of a
brass pin's head. 'l'hey are most com
monly deposited on the body of a tree,
close to the surface of the earth, and the
fly prefers to lay her eggs on trees that are
surrounded with grass and weedS, where
hi tlinting 'arc better protected from the
sun, the storms, and from other toracious
animnitted:heings, than they would be in o
pen, initiritted orchards. In such shaded
and ilielterecl situations, the bark of trees
iq !flop moist and tender, and the young
white serums enter more easily than in
bark constantly exposed to the weather.
lln regard to the best method of destroy
ing,tbese eggs, or the young
_worms that
ecorrisqrom them, there may be some dif
ference of opinion among those who have
attended closely to this subject. We have
urgently recommended a wash of strong
lye before hatching; or, at least, before the
worm can bury itself under tho bark.—
This.should be applied in July; and as
the whole trunk need not be washed for
this particulue purpose, a swab will soon
wetlitlY treett near the roots, where the
IVOtTEIO are. -
Leached or unleashed ashes, placed a
round, the wanks, are en effectual relief
from the borer, And it is probable that
fine land, or 'sandy loam, would stifle the
young worms and prevent any considera
ble progress into the body of the tree; for
the worm •.in boring, must have air, and
room, too, to back out the chips that she
cuts with her auger teeth. •
Sind piled around the trunk of an old
tree that is surrounded with grassor weeds
will have.a good tendency to prevent any
depoiit of eggs on the trunk ; and wohave
before intimated to our readers a wish that
some of them "Would try the effect of a

so brown and clingy, in its foliage, as fre.
qiiently to present the appearance of a
dead rather than a lire fence.
.Having a fine line of this hedge on one
of the boundaries of our premises,.and ob
serving that did borer was commencing
his attacks upoh portions of it, we applied
in April, 1815, a pretty plentiful dressing
of sip along the whole line of liedge;and
inunediately, about the base of the thoin
stems. The application was strong enough
to kill the young tufts of grass, that were
growing here and there Along the roots
of the hedge. The hedge itself was great
ly luxuriance by it. But what
most surprised' us was this : The spring
and summer of 1845 were perhaps the
divot and hottest ever known here.—
TreCs and plants of every kind suffered
greatly. For the first time within our
remembrance, since the hedge was plant
ed, it .remained in healthy and green ver
dure' through Me whole season till ati
tainn. We attribute this solely to the ac
tion of the salt, and cannot but think, there
fore, that it must be one of the best ali
ments, when the soil is naturally too dry,
far any tree or plant, provided the tree
and plant to be grown there is one that
will bear salt.
.A.-dry soil is one that from its -texture

Cotatiton salt has an unusual capacity for
attracting it.
This is probably one reason why the
plum tree, which loves a moist soil, thrives
so Well tiller the application of salt. •
Bros ex VINES.—Bugs on squash and
pimpkin vines are caught by placing shin
gles, or bits of board, near the plants.—
Early in the morning, you will find the
large black and the small striped bugs un
der these boards, where they gather at
night and are protected. Take up one
board in each hand, bring the two in can
tad, where the bugs may be crushed by
robbing them together.
Sprinkling the vines repeatedly with
ashes, plastrr, and such matters, drives the
bugs away. Charcoal dust, lime, ashes,
and all such remedies, have a good tenden
cy to keep off' the intruders.

Mr..Tas. F. RC/FPI
Dear Sir—About three weeks ago my wife
caught a severe cold, which troubled her a good
deal and gave her great uneasiness: she prepared
q great many articles which were recommended
to her by her friends, but without receiving- the
benefit from any of them ; her cough was getting
worse every day ; her appetite was taut to ling
and to sleep was impossib'e: the mos in her
breast end side begrime so severe that that she
had to go to bed, and my friends advised me io
call in a Physician. I thought I would call in
the store where you were engaged and see it I
could not get something that would relieve her.
when you gave me a bottleof your Expectorant,
assuring me tLat it would cute her, she commen
ced taking it that night, not, however, without
great opposition on the part of some of her
friends,. who said it was only sonar "Aleut.
Medirine,' and would de her more hams
than . good. But I determined to take pion adviee,
and now let 01l know the !Molt I Front takirig the

could spit up with but little difficulty; the tallow—

tions, sod that time, for the first time for uteri,
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest and by
the time she had finished the first bottle, she was
entirely cured. Make what use of this you air&
