Atidrains are dug abotit two and u-half

The tiles appear to he made in the best

immediately on it ; if the ground is soft, a

-SALT es Duiiiutui;.—Couniton salt may
advantageously be employed as n manure
directly, or it may be mixed with the dung
heap. In the latter application of it, it
must tic borne in mind that in large quan
tities it is capable of suspending fermenta
tion altogether, so that if the farmer wants
his dung to keit well, he must be careful
in the use of salt; but in small quantities
during the fermentation, or in full supply
to the manure a short time before its ap
plication to the land, salt is likely to be of
great service. Not only does it render the
ammoniacal compounds less volatile, but
it is capable of destroying the germs of
both vegetable and animal life, for there is
little doubt that we too often introduce in
to the soil with the manure the weeds
which choke, and the insects which de
vour, our crops. Salt will prevent all
seeds [ruin germinating when they are
sufficiently saturated with a solution of it.
No fear, however, need be entertained of
its effect when the manure has been pro
perly mixed with the soil ; it is then too
diluted to interfere with the germination

Near the close of the year 1845,1 had an attack
of the Pleurisy and while reentering from it, I
took a severe cold. My condition soon became
alarming and I grew gradually worse and worse.
'Theityniptems manifested by my disease were

voice was gong so as to be unable to utter a few
words without greet difficulty, and I explerienced
a thousand other painful sensations that cannot
be told. Ode of *most unpleasant attendants
of my 'disease were chilling sweats. The cold
perspiration ran from me continually, tot only at
night, but also dating the day so as to keep my
cloths.at all twee continually wet. -
I employed every means of cure I could hear,
and was attended by several eminent and skillful
Physicians. But the Obstinacy of my disease
bated all their,efforts. They indeed raised me
front my bed, bits they also pronounced me incur
able. The last Physicies attending me, told me
at one time, that 1 had but a few days to live—at
another time 1 might linger on a sew weeks or
months, but that st was utterly impossible that I
could get well, or ever be able to attend to my
business. Thus, with no prospect of recovery I
lingered on doting the greater part of the year
1846—for three months of which period my
friends sat up with me, expecting every night to
see my sufterings end in death.

Dear Sir—AbOut three weeks ago my itife
taught a severe cold, which troubled her a food
deal and gave her great uneasiness; she prepared
• 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 lei 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 were engaged and see if I
could not get something that would relieve her,
when you gave me a bottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me tl.at it would cure her, she commen
ced taking it that night, not, however, without
great opposition on the part of borne 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,
and now fat all knutv the Resuit 1 From taking the

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, fur the last time for nearly
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest mat by
the time she had finished the first battle, she was
entirely mired. Make what use of this you think
proper, for such an invaluable medicine should be
made known to the afflicted every where. With
best withes for your success,
