The Potato Rot—How it may be Pre.
The general prevalence, all over the
country, of the disease known as the pots.
to rot, has greatly unpaired th, value of
the crop, and prevented many farmers from
cnltivating to the same extent as was for
merly done. So serious has been the evil
to the agricultural interests, that both men
of science and the practical farmers have
given much attention to investigating the
cause el the potato disease, and to the
discovery of a remedy.
A day or two since, we received a let
ter from lrtvin Sampson, Esq., a very in•
telligent farmer, who has tilled the soil all
the days of his life, in the rich country
near New Wilmington, in Lawrence coun
ty, in which he gives us whit ha cleims
as a sixtple, and cheap preventive of the
potato rot. He is satisfied, from experi
ments which he himself has made, that
the following is a sure remedy for the
'rake a double handful of well rotted
oak wood, and aoatter it upon the seed po
tatoes in the hill, and then cover with earth
in the usual manner, and there will be
no signs of rot. He made the discovery
three years ago, in a clearing, just made
and planted with potatoci. He observed
that where the roots of the potato ...acne in
contact with ashes, the hill was entirely
rotten, but that in adjoining hills where
the roots came in contact with the old
rotten oak wood of the clearing, every po
tato was sound and dry. In hills where
there was neither ashes nor decayed oak
wood, the potatoes were about one half
rotten. Takii% the hint from these ob
servations, 4r. Sampson has tested the
discovery for three years past, and has
never found a diseased potato in the hills
where the pulverized oak wood has been
applied, and in patches where there were
no decayed p itatoes, the roots were found
to grow larger and healthier, and of a bet
ter flavor where the oak wood was used,
than where it was not. Mr, S. is but a
plain practical farmer, and does not at
tempt to give a scientific reason for this
result, but simply announces the fact, and
the result of his experiments. It is well
known that the oak possesses high anti
septic and other peculiar qualities, as tan
nin enters largely into its composition. It
is for scientific men to ascertain what is
the peculiar principle which produces this
result. The farmer can avail himself of
the knowledge of the fact that it do s
prevent the rot, for Mr Sampson's state
ments are fully reliable. Eve ry one who
cultivates the soil, in this part of the coun
try at least, can readily obtain rotten oak
wood in sufficient quantities to make the
experiment for himself with all the pota
toes he may plant.—The discovery is an
important one,and we hope our readers
in the country districts will try the exper
iment this season and, communicate to us
in the fall the result for publication.—Ex.
PRESERVING FLOWERS. u r fair read
ers, all of whom, we know, long flowers—
the season of which is now at hand—will
be int-'rested in the following manner of
preserving them from wilting. which a
cotemporary assures us is highly success
ful. The plan is this :—Procure a flat
dish of porcelain, into which pour water;
place upon it a vase of flowers, and all
over the vase a hell glass with its rim in
the water. The air that surrounds the
flowers being confined beneath the bell
glass, is constantly moist with water, that
rises into it in the form of vapor. As fast
as the wa'.er becomes . condensed it runs
down the side of the bell glass; so as to
prevent it evaporating into the air of the
sitting room, the atmosphere around the
flowers is continually damp. 'rhe plan
is designated the .Hopean Apparatus.'—
The experiment may be tried on a small
scale by inverting a tumbler over a rose
bud in a saucer of water.
Remedy for the Cumuli°.
An old farmer in Haverferd informs us
that he has discovered a certain remedy
against the ravages of the Curculio, one
of the most dangerous enemies to differ_
ant kinds of fruit the farmer and nursery
man have to contend with. His plan is
to take lime and slake it to the coma
tense of thin whitewash. 'Phis wash he
sprinkles liberally over the fruit trees in
the month of May, as soon as the blossoms
fall, and whilo the dew is on, or the trees
are wet from a shower. The method of
applying it is by means of rr common gar
den pump, or syringe, such as is used to
wash windows. Our informant states
t hat, after an experience of six years, he
is iatisfied that it is effective. The ex
periment is easily tried, and the cost, if it
fails, does not amount to anything. For
peaches, pears, plums and cherri,s, it is

of paint, put a handful of hay in a pail of

And all Diseases of the Lungs and Throat,
CURABLE HT INHALATION.
Which conveys the remedies to the cavities in
the lungs through the air passages, and coming
in direct contact with the disease, neutralizes
the tubercular matter, allays the cough, causes
a free and easy otpectoration, heals the lungs,
purifies the blood, imparts renewed vitality to the
nervous system, giving that tone and energy so
indispensable tor the restoration of health. To
be able to state confidently that Consumption is
curable by inhalation. is to me a source of unal
lo3ed pleasure. It is as much under the ma
trol of medical treatment as any other formid
able diseaso ; ninety out of every hundred ca
ses can be eared is the first stages, and fifty per
cent. in the second ; brit In the third stage it is
impossible to save more than five per cent., for
the Lungs ere so cut up by the disc., as tc hid
defiance to medical skill. Even, however, in the
last stage% Inhalation affords extraordinary re-
Sono the suffering, attending this fearful sconrgo
which anneally destroys nineiy-five thousand'
persons in the Uditcd States alone ; and a cor
rect ca'culation elthats that of the present popu
lotion of the earth, eighty millions are destined
to fill the Consumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver o! death line no arrow so fa
tal as Consumption. Intell ages it hns been the
great enemy of life, for it spares neither ego one
sex, but sweeps o il the br,lve, the bentiti
fill, the graceful and the gifted. I,IY the help o
that Supreme Being from whotn ceistllh every
good and perfect gift, I em enabled to MTh , In
the afflicted a permanent and speedy core In
Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is
from impure blood, and the immediate effect pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre
vent the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
entire system. Then surely it is more rational
, to expect greater good from medicines entering
' the cavities of the lungs than those administered
through the stomach; the patient will always
find the lungs free and the breathing easy, after
Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally and
with more potter and certainty than remedies
administered by the stomach. To prove the pow
erlul anti direct influence of this mode of admin.
istration, chloroform inhaled will entirely de
stroy sensibility in ft few minutes, paralyzing
the entire nervous system, so that a limb may be
amputated without the slightest pain; inhaling
the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the sp.-
1 tem when faintMg or apparently dead. The o
/ dor of many of the medicines is perce ',tibia in
the sktn a Jew minutes after bring inhaled, end
maybe immediately detected in the blood. A
convincing proof of the constitutional effects of
inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always pro •
aimed by breathing foul air—is not this positive
evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepar
ed and judiciously administered then' the longs
should produce the happiest t•esults 2 During
cighteen years' prectice, many thousands sulfur
ing from diseases of the lungs and fluent, have
been under my chre, and I have eflimted many
remavimb le cures, even after the sullerers had
been pronounced in the last stages, which hilly
satislies mo that consumption is no longer a tit
bit disease. My treatment of consumption is
,~ri.;imr 1, and founded on long experience and a
tlmrough investigation. My perfect negnaintanee
with the nature of tubercles, &e., enables me to
ilhdingnish, readily, iho various forms or disease
that simulate consumption, and apply the proper
remedies, rarely being mistaken even inn single
case. This familiarity, in connection with cer
tain pathological and microscopic discoveries en
ables non to relieve the lungs from the cßets of
contracted chests, to Wargo the chest, purity
the blood, impart to it renewed vitality, giving
energy and tone to the entire system.
