was raised : •
keretoforo„as a general thing many of
our farmers have been satisfied with grow•
ling from flute to sixty bushels of corn p
sere, but timer' have changed, and land
has become so valushle in our comity,
that good husbandry and care are required
to produde a paying crop. MY method
of cultivating the crop of *which yott slioke
was as follosis:
I I spread broadcast on my sod, about
80 loads of stable • manure to the acre,
broke it up in the last week in April, from
eight to ten inchea deep. The ground , was
then thoroughly harrowed, end marked but
three by four feet. A compost made of
,excrement, fowl manure, rich soil and
plaster. was pot in the hill before drop
ping: and the corn planted about the 10th
of May. In due time, all the euperfluous
stalks were removed, leaving but three to
the hill. , The ground was worked with
the evltivator itlone, rind the crop flourish
ed during the summer. About the 10th
of Nov. two persona 'measured off &nacre,
ten to sixteen perches, from the middle of
the rows each way. There were sixty
shocks to an acre six by eight hills. The
I barn was measured by a master mechanic
and an assistant, and it was hauled in, and
, there, were seventy-six barrels end two
bushels of ears. One of the men shelled
a barrel, and it exceeded one Uusliel and
a half," by about:halt a pint to the, barrel.
Six ears and : - a hull made -a perk of
corn : making one hundred and fifteen
bushels to the acre. The compost in the
bill pushed the crop op until it reached,
the manure and soil below, which- fed at
the time it most nettled-nourishment—at
ea ring time. The vim' was a•mixture or
