AGRICULTURAL. - - - • Pro Ali, Compco of American A grivnlititc 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. :Sandy soils are improved by the fro- Tient use of a heavy roller ; it cannot be used too often. They require to be made more compact, and any treatment that se same this object, will be advantageous. 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. ly if supplied with a slight addition of ma nure and an abundance of water. Sandy, soils can peyer,be profitably_cultirattultill they have acquired sufficient compactness and fertility to sustain a good growth of grass or clover ; and when once brought to this condition,' they are among.the most valuable. obey are at all times easily plowed and worked; they require no draining; and thought light and dry, are quick and kindly soil*, giving an immediate and fuU return for the labor• nod snanure bestowed upon them. When in a condition to produce rise, idieep are admirably adapted to pro; aerie and 'augment their fertility, and by their incessant migrations over it, their sharp hoops pack the surface closely, pro ducing the same effect as the roller. Gravelly soils are, in some re spects, . similar to sand, but much less desirable. being appropriately termed hungry.— 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 over pabulum or food of plants may from time to time be given to it for the want of litters Drops. Unless of this description, gravelly soils should not he subjected to but appropriated to pasturage, when sheep will keep them in the best and moat profitable condition of which they are capable.

Every farmer is sensibly aware of the fact, thetitifiimpossible to realize a remunera ting crop from soils which exist in a state ofrfupzussiturisatiou during a large portion cif•the year, or for a considerable length of time subseipseot to every shower or fall of _.vainoititikisnder crop.

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.

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. • R.

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.

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.
