‘.IRIBII ItOSE .1117TTER:
.A notice was published initlie Cultiva
tor for July, as to "Irish Rose Butter,"
said to be the article which the govern
ment required to be conformed to in con
tracts.for supplying the navy. I have
lately received letters from England and
Ireland in relation to this Irish butter, and
the reeult-is, that so far as I can learn,
there is no such butter manufactured in
Ireland for their shipping, as "Rose But

A;teiter 'from Cork, from which port
the Muter for the British navy is purchased,
beinemade in, the counties of Cork, Lim
erick, and Kerry, says, "The term "rose
butter" we know not the derivation of.—
There is may one description shipped
hem, end ell is brought id" for inspection,
to a Italie market in this city."
The letter front. Cork gives the method of
manufacturing butter for the British navy,
which I will give for the benefit of your
readers, trusting that it will be useful to
our dairyman, and may perhaps enable
some of then► to compete for the supply of
the Navy, with the one country referred
to by your correspondents. The writer

the farmer iu original packages, which

tsinita-Daapasto.—Mr.Johnsto - n is of I
opinion that the winter-killing of wheat is
caused by two great a retention of water 1
inthe tail and subsoil. In this we fully
agree with him: To obviate the evil he
had resorted . to under draining with tdes.
of which he laid 700 rods. The tiles are
made by Mr. , Whartenby. of Water
loo, after a pattern procured by Mr. J..
from Scotland. They cost at the kiln
twenty cents per rod. The drains are
dug about two and a half feet deep. or so
low that the water does not come up
through the bottom. The digging costs
from eight to ten cents per rod. The tiles
spear to be made in the best manner,—
They are not in the - least injured by the
weather; even when exposed to the most
severe frost. When the bottom of the
ditch is firm, the tiles are placed immedi
ately on it; if the ground is soft, a hem
lock board is laid down, on which the tiles
are placed. A little straw is laid over the
tiles'and the earth which had been exca
vated is Then thrown on.
'w The beneficial effects of drain,g on Mr.
'Johnson's farm are very apparent. Pla
ces which formerly would bear no wheat,
nor indeed scarcely any thing but a kind
of sour grass and reeds, are made, merely
by draining, to produce the finest crops of
every descriptfou of grain. He is so well
convinced of the advantages of the practice
that he has laid 400 rods the present sea

various Departments of the Government, in refer

tione of the country, will be given with scrupu

and Debates of the U. states Senate, which the
proprietor is bound to furnish daily to that body,
in accordance with the tiirms of the contract made
at the close of the last session of Congress. The
arrangementi now made wilrat once tally smite
to the 'Senate of the United States ah authentic
and complete tecord of its debates; and to the peo

the experience, sagacity, and statesmanship of
that body to ihich they have ever looked with
solicitous and respectful regard.
111. The Proceedings and Debates in the House
of Representatives will also be given, with full
ness, impartiality, and the utmost promptitude.
Each day's record will be completely made up,
and appear in the "Reporter" nest morning.
IV. A Synoptical View of the Proceedings and
Debates of all the State Legislatures will be regu

Such is a brief:view of what the "rnited Steles
Reporter" is designed to be. All the plans an
arrangement■ have been sell matured, and the
hope is confidently cherhhed that the "Reporter
will prove itself an energetic. indut,trious. digniti
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 ~erns.
skins except the debates." It will be a vehicle of
news, not the organ of any set of opinions. The
grand aim of the subscriber is to:establish at the
seat of Government a faithful and prompt reporter
°E'en - torte' of intelligence—a responiible agent, do
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 which
place it within reach.of the great masses of the
people, at the commencement of what promises to

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
Philadelphia, Dec, 4,1847.
Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for
the benefit experienced by the INC of Thomson a
Compound Syrup of Tar, and that others 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 intermission daring this
long period, language fails to tell what I have suf.
feted from debility, pains in the breast and side,
night sweats, difficult expectoration, oppressed
breathing, and in fact all those symptoms which
mark a severe pulmonary affection. The relief
occasionally obtained by the discharge of the mat
ter which obstructed the healthy action of my
system, but increased my fears, as the purulent
matter discharged was frequently streaked with
During this tittle I was under the treatment of
*erase phySicians,and took many of those preps
ratierns recommended as serviceable in the cases
of others, but without relief t and 1 at length con
cluded that a cure in my case was hopeless. But
how agreeably chunged is now my opinions I
have used for about three weeks Thomson's Com
, pound Syrup of Tar. By the -use of one bottlemy
cough hasheen relieved and my system reinvigo
rated, sad by continuing the use of it up to this
time, l atn satisfied that my complaint is entirely
removed and eradicated,

AN EXTRAORDINARY CURE.
ESSRS. ROWAND & WALTON—Having
experienced the extraordinary efficacy of
your Dr. Cullen's Indian Vegetable Panacei upon
my own person, a feeling of gratitude forour

this time every remedy used gave no relief; the
leg continued to get worse; during the early part
of August ray sufferings ware Litotes. I neither
went to bed or slept-legularly for nearly two
weeks, biting campelloTto set up, with myjeg
supported on a chair. About' this time my son
brought home with him from Cincinnati market
one of your circulars, which had been thrown is
to the wagon. I reedit, and knowing some of
the signers to the of lb. ewe of Mr. .
Brooks, and believing from my ktrerlodfle of their
characters that they, would not lOW their names
for the purpose of palming an imposition upon •
the public, I concluded to try what effect it would
have upon me. On the 20th of August I proem
red the first bottle, commenced taking it accord
ing to directions, and in four hours the pain ,wee
so much relieved that I fell asleep and enjoyed that
greatest of blessings, a few hours repose. I con
tinued using it until the 28th of August, when I
found myself so much better that Iwent %An,
cloned to your Agent, Mr. Danenhonr,with whom
I made arrangements to take 20 bottles, provided
he would guarantee to curs me. Ht agreed todo
so, and gave me tie privilege of stepping short of
die 21) bottles, whenever I considered myself well.
I now felt encouraged, and continued to use it an
tler Mr. D's instructions, until I had taken It bot
tles, (using no other medicine whatever.) when I
found myself entirely well ; the tumor on 14..- , •
breast having softened. it opened, crane our, and
was healed up when I hail taken 6 or 7 bottles.
I will here observe, that for many years 1 had
Ova troubled with a kind of dry Teues, .which
greatly annoyed me, particularly when heated or
worm in bed ; I have telt nothing of this since ta
king your medicihe, and have fro doubt that my
system is now entirely free intim disease, my gen
eral health never having been better.
On the 30 of December 1 again called ea Mr.
Danenhower. I then pronounced myself well and
offered to give him a Certificate to that 'Sect,
which I promised to send him in a few days. A
few days thereafter, however, while killing hogs,
I hurt the same leg badly, in consequence of
which I postponed giving the prettified Certin
cote, wishing thoroughly to test the permanency
of the cure. I now used nothing but the nasal
simple remedies for fre.h wounds. and found my
flesh perfeetly healthy. and in the usual time for
such rases my leg healed. Sufficient time bee e
lapKA to convince me that I am now a sound man
and that I have been cured bv your Panarnalone.
In short. I have every conflrience in itirirtifer:=
