HANDY SOILS AND THEIR MANAGE
The diameter and treatment of sandy
soils aro in almost every particular the re
verikrof those of clay. They do not pos
sesilif property of adhesiveness, and they
have, but little affinity for water, which es
capes from them almost as soon as it falls.
They Inive but a slight hold upon the ma
nures which arc diffused through them :
they are loose in their texture, and may be
plowed at any time with equal advantage,
provided the sowing or planting is to fol
low immediately.
As clay soils are much beneitted by a
mixture of sand, so likewise are sandy
soils greatly improved by the addition of
clay; yet in a much greater degree ; for
though it Would never pay, as a general
ride;lii'idd'itand to clay, yet the addition
of's few loads of the stiffest clay to a light
sand would, in,ahnostevery instance, much
more than compensate for the trouble and
eipenee. For this purpose, the clay
hbu id be thinly spread in autumn upon
•Werd previously plowed, and the winter's
frost will effectually separate the particles.
It should then be harrowed thoroughly
and' deeply in the spring, and subsequent
ly' plowed if necessary. Such a dressing
on a light, crawling land, is more than an
equivalent to an equal quantity of the best
manure, and will be permanent in its ef
fects. Clay and sand are necessary to
each other, as they both contain qualities
which are essential to a good soil ; and that.
WilF,always be found the best which has
the proper proportions of each.

Tient use of a heavy roller ; it cannot be
used too often. They require to be made

time, by its chemical action on the con
stituents of soils, while it separates clay,
renders sand more adhesive ; and when
cheaply obtained, it is always a profitable
dressing for sandy soils, to the full amount
they-may- require. Gypsum, in consider
able quantities. has an effect similar to
day add - sati'd • -
added in small portions, produces a stri
king increase in the crops of sandy soils.
Equally beneficial are ashes, leached or
unleached, peat, or vegetable manures of
any t kiud. Some calcareous sand, con
taining a large proportion of tube, like
those of Egypt and extensive regions 'of
the. Barbary titates, will produce luxuriant.

and fertility to sustain a good growth of

valuable.

They are also like the latter, peculiarly
lettehy, but in an increased degree, permit
ting the rapid escape of manures both by
evaporation and drainage. Such as are
calcerous, or composed of limestone peb
bles, are, in a great measure, not subject
to those objections ; as the deposing affin
ities of the lime, (of which enough will be
found to exist in the soil in a finely com
minuted or divided state, which, in this
condition, is enabled to act efficiently,) have
a tendency to retain the vegetable matters,
thus compacting the soil, and lioldinrwhat

time to time be given to it for the want of

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
Philadelphia, Dec. 4,1847.
Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for
the benefit experienced by the use of Thomson's
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
m•y know wig.° 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 during this
long period, language fails to tell what I have suf.
fared 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 neat•
ter which ob.tructed the healthy action of my
system, but increased my tears, as the purulent
wetter discharged was frequently stitial.cil with
Mood.
During this time I was under the treatment of
several physicians,and took many of those prepa
rations recommended as serviceable in the cases
of others, hut without relief : and I at length con
eluded that a cure in my case was hopeless. But
how agreeably changed is now my opinion! I
have used for about three weeks ThomsoMs 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. Jas. F. Rose.
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 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 fast Ise ling
and to sleep was impossible: the pains in her
breast and side became so severe that that, she
had to go to bed, and rdY (Fiends advised me io
call in a Physician. 1 thought I would call in
the store where you were engaged and see if 1
could not get something that would relieve her,
when you gave me cbottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me that it would cure her, she commen
cad taking it that night, not, however without
great opposition on the part of wine of he
friend., 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 lel alt know the Result 1 From taking the
first dose she fel t easier, though unable to sleep
orrecoeunt-of. turiktwarwity of phlegm that loam,-
ed and would almost choke her, but which she
could spit up with but little difficulty; the follow
ing day she continued it according totthe direc
tions, and that time, for the first time for nearly
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest and by
the timeshe had finished the first bottle, she was
entirely cured. Make what use of this you think
limper, for such an invaluable medicine should be
made known to the afflicted every where. With
beat wishes for your success.- '
I remain yours &e.,

and perfectly independent journal. It will
have no party views—no political bias. The pro
prietor, by the terms of hie contract with the
Senate of the U. States, is bound to the condition
that -,the paper shell contain no political dawns
sioneexcept the debates:" It will be a vehicle of
news, 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 responsible ogeni. 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 which
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, will be re
order., with favor by all chrism of the communi

AN EXTRAORDINARY CURE
MESSRS. RO WA ND & WA LTON—Having
experienced the extraordinary efficacy of
your Dr.

my
own
our
wonderful discovery, and a desire that ytiur Med
icines should be known and appreciated by the
public, has induced me thus woluntarily to give
you an account of my case, hoping that others
who may be ito unfortunate as I have been, nasty
be induced to throw prejudice aside and give your
Panacea a fair trial.
In February, 18411, • lump , or tumor first ap
peared upon the spine of my n;bl leg, and poth
er on the lower part of my breast near the junc
tion of the ribs; they increased gradually until the
pity part of June, about which time they became
very painful. In July the tumor on the left leg
et.c • • AVM and became a running sore, extending
itself until it was 'halt the aiwrof a-mates hand,
and had eaten into the bone, and one Of two smal
ler ulcers appeared below the uncle. 3ty physi
cian and others pronounced it Scrofula. Up to
this time every remedy Deed gave no relief; the
leg continued to pet worse; during the eatly part
of August my sufferings were intense. •-I neither
went to bed 'or slept regularly for nearly toe
weeks, being compelled to set up, with my leg
supported Q 0 a chair. About this time my son
brought home with him from Cincinnati market
one of your circulars, which had been thrown in
to the wagon. I reed it, and knowing some of
the signers to the Certificate of the can of Mr.
Brooks, and believing from my knowledge of their
characters that they would not lend their names
.for.-tha purpose of palming en imposition -upon
the public, I concluded to try what effect-it would
have upon me. On the 20th of August I procu
red the first bottle, commenced taking it accord
ing to directions, and in four hours the pain was
so much relieved that 1 fell asleep and enjoyed that
greatest of blessings, a few hours repose. I con
tinued using it until the 28th of August, when I
sound myself so much better that I went to Cin
cinnati to your Agent, Mr. Danenhour, with whom
1 made arrangements to take 20 bottles, provided
be would guarantee to cure me. 1 - ht agreed to do
so , end gave me the privilege of stopping short of
the 20 Doilies, whenever 1 considered myself well.
I now lett encouraged, and continued to use it un
der Mr. D's instructions, until I had taken 12 Loot.
Iles, (using no other medicine whatever.) when I
found myself entirely, well ; the tumor on my
breast having softened, it opened, cantle out, and
was healed up when 1 had taken 6 or ? bottles.
1 will here observe, that for many years 1 had
been troubled with a kind of dry Totter, which
greatly annoyed me, particularly when heated or
w-srm in bryl . 1 na re telt nothing of this since ta
king your medicate, and have no doubt that my
system is Bow entirely free from disease, my gen
oral health neser hawing been.better.
On the 3d of December 1 again called on bfr.
Datienhower. I then prononnced myself well and
offeied to gise him a Certificate to that effect,
w hull I promised to tend him in a tew days. A
