Agriculture is the great channel of
industry in our State, and yet it is-the
. ..east progressive of all industrial pur-
Why it is so, is difficult of ex
vlituatison, for our fanners equal in
intelligence any other class on the
continent engaged in the great work
pf That they have had
bitter, narrow prejudices—inherited
from their fathers—to overcome, and
thus learned to regard with suspicion
every innovation . on= the-zold time
method of 'sowing and reaping their
harvests, is only too true ; and as early
.and ardent innovators have nsuallV
paid the penalty of bankrupte;r-for
tikir .efforts to enforce progress - .in
farming, it is perhaps not much a
matter of -surprise that ft class emi-
tient for their steady, habits arid safe
operations as are our farßiers, could
.be slow to accept , new ideas. -But in
spite of themselves they have pro
gressed. Grain drills and reapers have
usurped the broad-ctist sowing. and
the uld scythe and cradle; fertilizers
are enforcing their virtues by necessi
ties -which demand improvement or
poverty; and each year the wisdom -
and. economy of farming only so much'
as can be farmed well, are being mot,-
widely accepted. .
Agricultural machinery has impro
ved with - wonderful rapidity of late
years; and did the farmers as a class
keep pace with the inventive genius
devoted to their interests, the science
of Agriculture would stand in the very
front t rank of progress. Plows are
now made to turn the soil so as to
give it the utmost possible life instead
of dealing out death in every furrow;
wagons are made for utility rather
than to wear out horses needlessly.;
corn-planters and cultivators - now do
the labor of three men with one; fod-
der eaters feed five eat - tle where buf
one was fed before; hay-rakes make-
the, harvester master of the situa
tion•, in hay-making, and scores of
other implquents have quietly work
ed their way into the hands of farm
ers, who would perhaps to-day so far
forget th6mselves l as to denounce
- hook farming. •
.Wehave*retofore in these columns
called the attention-of our farmers - to
the manifest advantages of the tread
'rawer over the old lever-power for all
purposes !for - whic}r. horsepoYel'• is
needed about barns. Since- then we
have thoroughly tested it, and can
sAak advisedly on the subject. Hat
ing had considerable experience in the
- use of the mammoth threshing. ma
• chiaes nowin general use, we resolved
to dispense with them if possible.
Wheewe wanted to thresh, whether
a large Or small quantity, it required
a half day to get the machinery' in its
place and in' order, and them from six
to eight horses were, necessary and
.an equal number of laborers. %Vhen
the threshing was done, the horse,
power Was difficult - to move. And ever
in -the way, or' exposed lo Weather,
and-the thresher and separator are
equally unmanageable in the barn and
- always interfering with oher opera
tions on the floor One year we tried
a large sept,rator,iind'we Ivruld about
as soon haVe a good sized good or a
modqate fire on the premises. It re;
quired eight horses, rid worked them
severely - ; eight hands, and the straw
.had to be thrown out, as such a ma
chine_could not be put up more than
once= for a moderate crop, and the
whole of the - threshing had to be done
whileour hand was in. We concluded
there must be a better way of man
aging affairs about a barn—some plan
by. which • a farmer could have his
threshing under some control and his
machinery practimble for ready and
Nquent use: We carefully examined
the machinery of several leading man
, ufacturers, and adopted the tread
• power and small thresher and cleaner
manufactured by W. L. Boyer & Bro.,
- Philadelphia. We had rave doubts
as to the Power - of a tw--horse tread
machine to thresh, separate and clean
grain;- but it was guaranteed as am
ple and we resolved to try it.
The horse-power manufactured by
Boyer & Brother is ten feet long by
four feet wide and in a floor eighteen
feet wide it can stand at its place all
the time and - never interfere with
hauling or other operations in the
barn, It is :therfore never moved„ .
and, is not. in the way._ The thresher
and cleaner is hut little larger than a
common sized wind-mill; it divides
into two parts and-can be thus hand
led With:all ease by - four men. .The
first trial we made of the- machine
was with damp pats mixed with green
weeds. (We don't usually raise weeds
and oats, together,- but in war tithes
we. farm as best we can and not as we
would.) It threshed perfectly clean
—the power Was ample, and- four
hands and two horses did the whole
work, including the garnering of the
grain. Since then we - have tried it
frequently—threshing an hour, a half
day, a day; or more, as may suit. the
farmer or as bad weather, may
tate; and we would not now accept
any lever-poWer machine as a gift and
agree to use it. The horse-power is
always in its pace-and never in, the
way—the thresher can be Put, in its
place' and in order'in ten minutes;
the horses require no other hitching
than tying the halter strap; four
hands perform all the labor With en
tire .case, and when we
the Igraials in the garner and the
straw in the mow. With this'sinip/e
n can threith in wet wea
ther, when o other labor can be
done, and twenty minutes is always
ample to start the 'W.irk. We can
thresh, with- fear hands and two
horses. 150 bushels of White - Bough ,
ten?! "ivheat in a day with ease, and
have everything out of the way in
th a. evening ; an d, taking 014 average
of wheat crops from year to year, 100
bushels can be threshed day after day
with this little machinery_ without
taxing either horses or laborers as
severely as the old machines do: The
donamon idea - that tread-powers are
ruinous to horses is a mistake. :Most
horses when first tried willfret and
jex-h n t themselves, but with kind
management they will, soon become
aecustomed to it, and will work
the'. tread-power from day -to • daY
withcait any injury whatever.
We feel that we cannot too strong
ly urge the adoption of these machines
-by our farmers. They are so easily
started, dna perform , so much with so
little labor, that no one will discard
them who once tries them: In addi
tion to running a threshing inachine
and cleaner by our tread power, we
run a fodder-cutter, a eireular. saw, a
. corn-shellerand a chopping-mill: Any
of these machines can be attached to
the power in a few minutes, as two
men can carry one of them with ease.
and one hand and one horse can, in
half a day, chop as much grain and
cut as much fodder as will be fed by ,
any ordinary farmer in a week. We
can chop twelve bushels of oats, corn
or rye in an hour with one horseTand
one man can do all the work comfort-,
ably; and with two horses - and two
hands 800 bushels of corn can he shell
ed in a day. This whole machinery
—including horse-power, thresher and
cleaner, chopping-mill,- fodder-cutter,-
corn-sheller and circular saw,—can
be bought for about 8400—but little
more than the price of a large thresh
'big machine, and on any good farm
they will pay their entire-cost in one
, year. The fodder wih eed fully four
times the number of Nat
that it will feed without dating ;
grain of all kinds is worth one
more if chopped than it is if fed wh e;:

old, for which it much larger price Was paid, and which
have not one-filth as touch weight of frail of an inn
mewitirablyinferior quality. 'The purchaset showed me, ,
by calculation 1) tied upon the value of the fruit now on
the vines, that your vines were cheaper at the price
which he paid than the others would have been if he
had recer ved them free with a gratuity of $2 each, with
every vine. Mr. Mottler was right when he. decided to'
plant none but your best - Delawares?' Dated Hartford,

letter from Mr. Charles M.lleaell ' also of Hartford: "I
