Plnwing late in the Tall and luring win
ter may in some instances be bentiticial ;
in °theirs injurious. As a general rule, the
principal reason that can lie given in favor
of the practice, is that the wort, is perform
ea at a time of leisure, and the farmer is
relieved from the pressure and hurry which
'omnld attend the crowding of all his plow
ing into a few days of spring. Loose
gravelly and sandy lands are not, proliably
injured by late plowing ; lint compact
if plovted in fall, are sometimes so beaten
down by the heavy rains of winter and
spring, that more labor is actually required
ur bririg them into suitable condition for
crops, than if they had been touched till
near die time of sowing or planting.
The idea that anything is gained by the
decomposition ofsward by late fall plowing.
is, we are convinced, a mistake. On the
contrary, every one who has had an op_
immunity of observing, may have seen
that sward which is broken up after the
weather has become warm, and the grass
somewhat started in the spring, rots much
sooner than that which was plowed in fall
or winter.
But clayey soils, which have been well
drained, may be greatly improved by fall
plowing if it is done in the right way.—
The ground should be thrown into narrow
ridgr;s; Which should run in such a direr..
tion as will most readily turn tithe water
from the field. Let two furrows, as deep
as can well be plowed, be turned together,
in the form of what are called "back-fur
rows," and the whole field be plowed in
this way. This will expose a large por
tion of the soil to the action of the frost and
air. The ridges will be dry, and the soil
being frozen and thawed while in this state,
it will become loose and friable, and on
cross-plowing the ridges, when the proper
time arrives for seeding, the soil will be
mellow. and in excellent condition for a
crop. This course has produced good
crops of grain and vegetables on land which
would yield little or nothing in any other
Land which is overrun with couch-grass,
Wray also be plowed in ridges in the fall to
good advantage—especially if the soil is of
a compact nature. The freezing of the
roots will tend to weaken their vitality, and
greatly facilitate the cleaning of the land,
which should •be'' done by a thorough fal
lowing, and working out the grass roots,
which should be collected and burnt the
next season.—.llbany Cultivator.
lleNs.—These useful fowls should at
all times be carefully attended and provi
dedfor. Comfortable lodgings in severe
weather ; a plenty of food, drink, and oth
er articles required by their peculiar hab
lILS and constitution, should by no means
be denied. An old farmer informed one
recently that he considered the neat profit
of six hens, properly attended, equivalent
to the neat income of a tolerable cow.—
"But," said he, "they must be fed and ca
red for, else they will nut only prove an
annoyance to the owner, but a source of
greater expense than income." As a gen
eral rule, it may be remarked, that the bet
ter we keep our domestic fowls and ani
mals of all kinds, the greater profit
they of us. A half starved cow, ox,
horse, turkey, duck, or hen, is not only a
pitiable but a profitless object. liens
should be constantly provided with meat,
as this constitutes, during summer, their
chief substance ; hence, tvhen they are
confined during the inclement nBSOBS of
the year, they should be favored with it in
proper quantity, and at proper times.
Lillie, sand, bones, &e. are necessary to
their health, and to promote fecundity.

l'arsEavixo, airma.—The farmers in
the parish of Udney, in the county of Ab
berdeen, Scotland, practice the following
method of curing their butter, which gives
it a great superiority over that of their
neighbors :----Take two parts of the best
common salt, one part of sugar, and one
part of saltpetre ; take one ounce of this
composition for sixteen ounces of butter ;
work it well into the mass, and close it up
for use. The butter cured with this mix
ture appears of a rich and marrowy
consistence, and tine color, and never
acquires a brittle hardness, nor tastes
salty. Dr. Andersen says. "1 have ate
butter cured with the above composi
tion, that had been kept three years,
and it was as sweet as at first." But it
must be noted that butter thus cured, re
quires to stunt] three necks or a month
before' it is required to be used; if it be
sooner opened, the salts are not sufficient
ly blended with it; and sometimes the
coolness of the niter will then be perceiv
( d vihich totally disappears afterwards.—

Matsysta.—The old Scotch proverb that
"many a little makes a muckle," ought to

t‘trous Of economising. Franklin has said
that "a penny saved is two pence earned."
In the business of accumulating, and econ
omising Materials for manure, the applica
tion ut the principles of industry and fru
gality, are indispensable. No business is
of more vital importance on a 1 . ,1 rm. Let

Gtr the last seven years, promises have been
made of excelling .'Graham" by every petty
pretender; yet the Magazine still maintains
triumphantly the a s cendant.
We promise our readers in January such a
number as shall pain "the ineffectual fires" of
our imitators, who seize a good idea witted' we
have executed, and make it common by the
baseness of the copy.
Portraits of our army Ifrroet.—We have al

of GEN. TAX Lon, and have now ready ex
vented a magnificent likeness of GEN. BUT

of all the leading men who have distingUished
themselves in the present war. This series of
portraits will be prized by every patriot.
We design to commence in the January
number, in addition to New Novels by Willis

which has been highly praised by the best
judges. and has only been withheld from our
readers in the last volume as we had already

a determination to make A GREAT NATION

merits of its literary matter, and excellence of

ny in favor of your External Remedy, Hunt's Lin

now ten years of age, has been tar the last eight
years a cripple, caused by falling from a chair
when he was two years old, and wrerwhing his
spine. From the time of the occurrence we have
tried every means to restore Mtn to his natural
shape, but all without avail. We took him to N.
York, and placed him under the cam of
,a physi•
cial of skill, and, after remaining there for some
time, we brought Min Ironic no better than when
we took him there. For several days at a time
he wag so helpless that he could only walk by
placing his hands upon his knees for simport,giv•
ing hint the appearance of a deformed hunchback.
Ile was also taken to Newburg and prescribed for
without any better stalceSs. At tines he would be
strong enough to go out of doors, but atter play
ing an hour, would come in perfectly exhausted,
and for several days after would be again perfect.

restored to his natural shape or strength ; but it
kind Providence placed your External Remedy in
my hands. I have used but tour bottles. and am
rejoiced to say that the boy is now as straight as
any boy of his age. Any of my neighbors will
testify to the truth of this statement. I take sin
cere pleasure in stating these facts for the benefit
of others suffering under a like calamity. Yntir's

Near the close of the year h. 15, I had an attack
of the Pleurisy and while recovering from it; I
took a snare cold. Sly condition boon became
alarming and I grew gradually worse and Worse.
The symptoms manifested by my disease were
those ordinarily found in pulmonary affections--
but mine were of an exceedingly aggravated char
acter. For a long period 1 expectorated a great ;
quantity of matter, which appeared a mixture of •
pus and blood—at times it seemed as if 1 was dis
charging the very substance of the Lungs. My
voice was gone so as to be unable to utter a
. few
words without great difficulty, and I experienced
a thousand othees 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 only at
night, but also during the day so as to keep my
cloths at all times 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
battled all their, e ff orts. They indeed raised me
front my bed. but they also pronounced me inctM•
able. The last Physician attending me, told me
at one time, that I had but a few days to live—at
another time I might linger on a hew weeks or
months, but that it was utterly impossible that I
could get well, or ever be able to attend to my
