Mr. S. Bents, of Boonsborough, Mary
land, has sent us two papers containing
samples of wheat. No. I. is wheat in a
natural state, as grown with the bran on.
No. 2 has the bran taken a, ail is as
nicely denuded uf - its outer coating as is
pearl barley. He has also sent us a third
paper containing the bran taken off of No.
Mr. Bunts is the inventor of the pro,
ctst by which this operation is perforated ;
and without pretending to an extraordina
ry knowledge in die art of milling, we are
to admit that this, improvement appears to
us, what his eirculardesignates it, an Hitti ,
portant". one. Ile affirms that all varieties
, wlvite, yellow, yello, are at
once impravedfroinj.s to 15 per cent. by
the process--end that the red and yellow
wheats will make as goad and fair.meal as
the whitevorleties now do. We, of course,
cannot be presumed to form any definite
opinion open• the validity of his eanclu-
Fiona, but judging by the sample of whor
led, and hulled wheat, we should be dispo
sed to yield our acquiescence sin the just
ness of his declaration, and we arc the more
ready to yield this point, as by the sepa- '
ration of the outer-coating from the farina
cious pari§.o.l*theyry, nearly all the col
oring matter being removed, there can he
but little left calculated to discolor the flour
made from it.
.-imonellie advantages claimed for this
process, the circular of Mr. Bents sets
l'orth that a saving in time in grinding is ef
fccted of from 25 to 50 per cent., while
from 40 to 52 lbs. of wheat is saved in
each barrel of dour : and that this system
imparts to flour made by it the capacity of
keeping in hot climates. This opinion
ho 'predicates upon the hypothesis, that it
is the bran, which remains in all meal
ground after the old method, which causes
it to sour. This opinion derives support
front the fact, that what is termed dyspep
tic flour—flour containing the bran—will
not keep longer than a few weeks without
beitonsirig - sonr. Why this is so, we are
not chemists enough to determine, and on
ly note the tact as one which has come un
der our observation.--:.gmerican Fanner.
FORMATION OF A POULTRY YARD.
As soon as it is determined to have a
poultry-yard; breed or breeds have
ham determined on, for some of them
should be sitters, and others should supply
the nests and tables with eggs. great care
should be taken in the selection of the fowls;
for on their healthiness, or freedom from
tliseaseouceess will chiefly depend. The
signs of health are as evident and as cer-,
taro in the feathered - tribes as in the quad
rupeds. The glossiness and smoothness
of the feathers, the brightness of the eye.
the cleanness of the nostrils, the florid red
ness of the comb, the soundness of the legs,
and the shortness of the claws, will be suf
ficient pledges of health. The male should
be large of his kind, and bold and active ;
the hens should be gentle and tame ; and,
as sitters, by no means above the middle
size; a small comb on the.hen may be par
dotted but should not be chosen." A large
comb is a frequent pledge of her unquiet
ness, awl, rarely belongs to a good sitter
or careful, nurse. They should be of a
middle age, from eighteen months to two'
years. Before that period, the eggs will
not have attained their full size, and the
young broods will be proportionally small.
The first inhabitants of the fowl-yard, and
which will give to it its future character,
should not be bought from a stranger; but
there should be a certainty that the hens
are good and early layers, and that they
begin to lay again as soon as their brood
is disposed of.
When a considerable number of fowls
are kept, a poultry-house, however small
and simple it may be, should be devoted
exclusively to their use. In a farm-estab
lishment it is particularly necessary, other
wise the owner will materially suffer.=
They will wander away, and be liable to
bo killed by foxes, hawks, &c., and the
eggs will be laid in all kinds of places.—
'Fide building, although well ventilated,
should be. warm and comfortable. Few
animals stiller more from cold than our
dometithi fowls. The roosting places
should be easy of access to the poultry,
but sufficiently high to be out of the reach
of varinin, and they should consist of one
or more level ranges. The boxes for lay
ingiad sitting should be convenient and
warntiapart from each other, and suffi
ciently, numerous. H there be sufficient
space, a yard-house should be fenced in,
communicating with the poultry-house,
and in which the whole stock may be oc
casionally antfuted. if it contain a stream
ore pond of water, that. would be a consid
cm* advantage. At all events if the poul
try Whistler about the yard, or other parts
of uhf procaine, their roosting, laying, and
ainimpplace should be comfortable, closed
at aiglit.'ind - there they should always be
fed... Time potiltry-yard should be dry.

Dear Fir—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 triende, but without receiving' the
benefit from any of them her cough was getting
worse every day ; her appetite was fast fai 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 my friends advised me io
call in a Physician. I thought I would call in
the store where you weir engaged and see it I
could not get something that would relieve her,
when you give me a bottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me that it would cure her, she cummen
ced taking it that eight, net, hmeever, without
great cmpositiuer on the part of some of he
friends, who said it was only some "Quack
Medicine," and would do her more harm
than good: But I determined to take your advice,

could spit up with but little difficulty; the follow

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 aye of this you think
proper, for such an invaluable medicine should be

rRILADIMPIIII, AUGUST 11, 1847
Near the close of the year 1845,1 had an attack
of the Pleurisy and while recovering from it, 1
took a severe cold. My condition soon became
alarming-and 1 grew gradually worse and worse.
The symptoms manifested by my disease were
those ordinarily found in pulmonary affeetions—•
but mine were of an exceedingly aggravated char
acter. For a period I expectorated a great
quantity of matter, w hich appeared a mixture of
pus and blood --at. 'roes it seemed as if 1 was dis
charging the very a boiance• of the Lunge. My
voice was gone so as to be unable to utter a few
words without great difficulty, and I experienced
a thoutuffidiOther painful sensations that cannot
be told. One of the most unpleasant attendants
of my disease were chilling sweats. - The cold
perspiration ran from me continually, not ouly at
night, but also during the day so as to keep my
cloths at all times continually wet.
I employed' every means of cure! could heat, '
and was attended brseveral eminent and hltillful
Physicians. Dot the obstinacy of my diseitie
baffled all their efforts. They indeed, raised me
from my bed,lnit they also pronounced ate incur
able. The last Physiciiin attending me, told me
at one time, that 1 had but a few days to live—at
another time I might linger on a tew weeks or
months, but that it was utterly impossible that 1
could get well, or ever be able to attend to my
business. Thus, with no prospect of recovery 1
lingered on during the greater part of the year
181 u—for three months of which period my
friends sat up with me, expecting every night to
see my-sufferings end in death. ,

had been cured of somewhat similar suffering, by

one of your circulars, which had been thrown its.
to the wagon. I read it, and knowing some of
the signers to the Certificate of tbe case of Mr:
Brooks, and believing rpro,myrimwelegigerefthoie
cheracters that they would not lend 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 procu

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 1 went to Chi.

I made arrangements to take 20 bottles, provided
he would guarantee to cure me. He agreed to do
so, and gave me the privilege of stepping ehork of
