.:The soil most favorable to the growth
of Aureipe,ls a deep sandy loam. The

hive, and as the greatest benefit is derived
by the Crop, from preparing the.soil pre
viouY to planting, it is necessary by re

Tlt lOtteksed product of all crops from the
use of the sub-soil plough is worthy of the
attention of our farmers generally, as our
ItindiOnjured by the superficial ploughing
in general use, would,be vastly benefited.
In. Addition to the benefit Which would be
derived by the turnip crop from thiscou
of preparation, it will be iii a much better
ebndition for the succeeding crop. As
the,iiirnip is subjected to the attack of the
fly, to prevent its destructive ravages, we
have commenced a regular change of our

But to , proceed with the preparation of
the soil.. The harrow was passed, to re
duce the ,soil to a proper condition, and
tie pieeels designated for Huta Degas was
then laid off, and furrows made six inches
deep, and eighteen inches apart. The ma 7,
nure was then dialed in the furrow each
way, the ridge was then prepared by open
ing.a slight furrow, for the reception of
the seed,. and, in the absence of a dri ll bor
row, the seed was sown by hand, at the
rate of two or three pounds to the acre.—
A slight dressing of ashes was then scat
tered into the drill, and the seed covered
with rakes. To insure a good crop, the
seed should invariably be put ikt by the
first of August : though we have grown
thinly successfully, planted as late as the

afe of a size to admit it, thin them down
t0..10 inches in the drill, at the same time
give..them a good and careful working
With ihe hoe. A second waking should
follow in two or three weeks, which will
usually - make the crop. ,Care - should,
lthwever, be taken to draw the earth about
them as they begin to grow above the
giound, to protect the roots from the sun
and, winter's frost.
Vroin the 15th to the last of Ampntt, the
common turnip should be sown to insure
a good crop.
To prevent the injurious effect of the
fly, various substances have been resorted
to. To steep the seed in train oil is bene
ficial,. The best remedy which has yet
been resorted to, is Gypsum, sown broad
cast o'er the leaves of the young plants,
while the dew is on, at the rate of three or
four bushels to the acre.
I The root culture gives the most green

under good management, the moat certain
in its returns. It best ameliorates the soil,
and affords an important link in the great
chain 'of alternation.

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
Philadelphia, Dec. 4, 1847-
Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for
the benefit experienced by • the tee of Thomson's
Compound Syrup of Tar, and that otheri who,
like me, have languished through years of affliction
and suffering, without being able to find a remedy
may know where it can be obtained, I voluntarily
make the following statement.
About four years since, after being affected with
a violent cold, it left upon me a troublesome and
severe cough. Whilst the cough continued, which
was with scarcely an interrniuion during this
long period, language falle to tell what I have suf
fered from debility, pains in the breast and side,
night sweats, difficult expectoration, oppressej
breathing. and in fact all those symptoms which
mark a serene pulmonary affection. The relief
occasiontlly obtained by the discharge of the mat
ter _which obstructed the -healthy -action of -I T
system, but increased my fears, as the purulent
matter discharged was frequently streaked with
During this time I was under the treatment of
several physicians,and took many of those prepa
rations recommended as serviceable in the rases
of others, but without relief : and I at length con
cluded that a cure in my case was hopeless. But
how agreeably changed is now my opinion! I
have used for about Shree weeks Thomson's Com
pound Syrup of Tar, By the use of one bottle my
cough has been relieved and my system reinvigo
rated, and by continuing the use of it up to this
time, I am satisfied that my complaint is entirely
removed and eradicated.

Mr. JAI. F. ROSS.
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
a greet many articles which were reerdrnmended
toiler by her friends, but without receiving the
benefit from any of them ;.ber Gough wee getting
worse every day; her appetite sou fast lei ling
and to sleep was impossible: the pains in her
bruit and side became so severe that that she
had to go to bed, and my, friends advised me i 0
call in a Physician. 1 thought 1 would call in
the store where you weie engaged and see if 1
could not get something that would relieve her,
when you gave me a bottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me that it would cure her, she common
cad taking it that night, not, however, without
great opposition on the part of some of be
friends, who said it was only some "Quack
Medicine" and would do her more harm
than good. But I determined to take your advice,
and now let all know the Beishit f From taking the
first dose she felt easier, though . unable te,eleep
on iecoun~ of sititintlti of phlegm that loosen
ed and would almost choke her, but which she
could spit up with but little difficulty; the follow
ing day she continued it according to the direc
tions, and that time, for the first time for neariy
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest and by
the time she had finished the first bottle, she sou
entirely cured. Make what use of this you think
proper, for such an invaluable medicine should be
made known to the afflicted every where. With
best wishes for your success,
I remain yours he.,

Such is a brief view of what the "United States
Reporter' is designed to be. All the plans and
arrangements have been well matured, and the
hope is confidently cherished that the ••Reporter"
will prove itself an energetic, industrious. dignifi
ed, and perfectly independent journal. It will
have no party views—no political bias. The pro
prietor, by the terms of his contract with the
Senate of the U. States, is bound to the condition
that "the paper shall contain no political discus.
skim except the debates." It will be ■ vehicle of
sews, not the organ of any set of opicions. The
grand aim of the subscriber is to:establish at the
seat of Government a faithful and prompt reporter
of all sorts of intelligence—a reeponsible agent, uo
which the politician, the business man, the menu
lecturer, the mechanic, and every one interested in
the affairs of Congress and the Government, may
rely at all times with implicit confidence.
It is believed that the establishment of such a
reliable Journal of Intelligence, on terms ss hich
place it within reach of the great masses of the
people, at the commencement of what promises to
be a most interesting and eventful period in the
history of Congressional proceedings, wilt be re
garded with favor by all classes of the communi

AN EXTRAORDINARY CURE:
IaRESSRS. RO WA NO & WA LTON— Having
all" experienced the extraordinary efficacy of
•your Dr. Culleo's Indian Vegetable Panacea upon
my own person, a feeling of gratitude for your
wonderful discovery, and a desire that your bled
kines should be known and apprecieteet by the
public, has iodated me thus volearseny to E l„„.,
you an account of my cue, hoping that issfie rsi
who may be so unfortunate as I have' bey m a y
be inducal to throw prejudice aside and give your
Panacea a fair trial.
In February, 1846, a lump or tumor first apo
peered upon the spine of my right leg, aud Rooth-,
er on the lower part of my breast IMF the pee-
Lion of the ribs; they increased gradually wit the
early part cif June, about which time rho Nem e
very painful. In July the tumor on the left leg
oLCII a ATED and became. 'unsling sore, extending
itself until it was half the. size of • man's hand,
and had eaten into the bone, and one or two smal
ler ulcers appeared below the audit. Sy.physi
cian and others pronounced it Scrofula. Up to
this time every remedy used gave no relief; the
leg continued to set worse ;:during the early part
of August my sufferings were intense. I neither
went to bed or slept regularly for nearly two
weeks, being compelled to set up, with my leg
supported on a chair. About this time my son
brought home with him from Ciheinnati market
one of your circulars, which had been thrown in--
to the wagon. I rod it, and -knoWing wine of
the signers to the Certificate of the cant of Mr.
Brooks, and believing from my knowledge of their
characters that-they would-not-lend thcirtunnes
for the purpose of palming an imposition upon
the public, I concluded to try what diet it would
have upon •me. Oa the 20th of August I pmeti
md the first bottle, commenced taking it accord
ing to directions, and in four hours the pain was
so much relieved that I fell asleep and enjoyed that
greatest of blessings, a few hours repo*. I con
tinued using it until the 28th of Auguit, when I
found myself so much better that .l went to Cin
cinnati to your Agent, Mr. Donenhour, withwbom
I made arrangements to take 20 bottles, provided
he would guarantee to curs me. He agreed to do
so, and gave me the privilege of stopping short of
the 20 bottles, whenever I considered myself well.
I now felt encouraged, Ind continued to use it un
der Mr. D's instructioniontil I bad taken 12 bet
tles,lusing no other robliciue whatever.) when I
found myself entirely well ; the tumor on my
breast having softened, it opened, come out, and
was healed up when I had taken 6 or 7 bottles.
I will here observe, that for many yeari I had
been troubled with a kind of dry fetter, which
arena) , annoyed me, particularly when heated or
warm in bed ; I have felt nothing of this since to
king your medicihe, and have no doubt that my
system is now entirely free from disease, my gen
eral health never having been better.
On the 3d of December I spin called on Mr.
Danenhower. I then pronounced myself well and
offered to give him a Certificate to that ef f ect,
which I promised to send him in • few days. A
few days thereafter, however, while killing hogs,
I hurt the same leg badly, in consequence of
which I postponed giving the promised Certifi
cate, wishing thoroughly to test the permanency
of the cure. I now used nothing but the usual
simple remedies for fre,h wounds. tied foetid my
flesh perfectly healthy, and in the usual time for
such cases my leg healed. Sufficient time has e
lapsed to convince me that I am now a sound man
and that I have been cured bv your rallattil alone.
