A BCOTCHMAN'S VIEWS OF WHEAT
CULTURE IN AMERICA.
KINTUCKY.—"That the natural pro
duce of wheat is much smaller in the fine
grazing lands in Kentucky than in the
country immeditaely to the south and north
of lakes Erie and Ontario, was testimony
of all the fanners with whom I conversed.
The same lands which yields on an average
75 bothers of Indian corn, would not
yield more than 18 buihele of wheat In
Southern Ohio and Kentucky, those con
ditions of climate prevail which are fa
vorable to producing the maximum yield
of corn, but which are not equally well
suited for large crops of wheat."
"The ground is seldom manured for
crops of any kind in Kentucky or Ohio
As yet the labor appears to be worth more
when applied in cultivating a larger area
of land than in collecting•and applying ma
nure to a smaller one. However, as the
most of stock is fed out of doors, there is
little:rnaure made about the yards, The
principle maize-producing districts in Ohio
are along the margins of the Scioto and
Miama rivers, which are too rich for
wheat. General BIERCE, in his aadress
to the agriculturist assembled at the coun
ty fair at Medinivaid that 'sandy land is
preferable for wheat over clay soils; This
sounds rather curiously to a scotch farmer
The General gave a chemical reason for
it, which I need not repeat; but the cir.
cumetance shows how much climate may
alter our ideas respecting the characters
of the soils which are best suited to cer
VIRGIN'', —"I walked over a large farm
in the alluvial land, lying south of the
James river- There were sixty negroes
old and young on this farm, which was
one of the largest in the neigborhood. Out
of this number, not more than twenty-five
hands were available for work at this sea
son.—Twenty-two mules and eight oxen
were required for cultivatieg 250 acres
wheat, 140 Indian corn, 100 acres of oats.
The produce of wheat is about 15 bushels
to the acre. Indian corn, 40 bushels, The
rotation of the crops usually followed is

concentrated on one field of wheat stub

ing it over the land for manure. 'l'te
soil being somewhat stiff, the plows were
drawn by four large mules—two negroes
to each plow, one to hold the plow and
the other to drive the animals. The oper.

WHEAT ON THE PRAIRIES.—"It iS OW.
mg to the nature of the soil of prar;es, and
not to the climate, that so little wheat is
sown in autumn. This appeared quite
evident from the fact of autumn wheat be.
ing sown on all gravelly soils of the prai
rie knolls. The high winds, attended
with intense frosts in winter, often destroy
the wheat plants, and the spring thaws
are apt to throw them out of the loose and
open prairie soils. These agents, and
the tendenoy of the wheat to mildew, are
the causes of so little wheat being sown in
autumn. Wheat succeeds well as a first
crop when the prairies are broken up, for
the plants obtain a firm hold exiting the
roots of the natural grasses and herbs; but
as aeon as the turf becomes mouldered
down into a loose and friable soil, it is lia
ble to suffer from the winter and spring
frosts, and is then far from being a sure
crop. For these reasons it is not probe
bli that prairies will ever produce much
fine winter wheat, but I am greatly mis
taken if they do no become the princibul
region for the Broth of spring varieties,
which can be rased with great facility."
SOUTHERN INDIANA A farmer and
miller, who resided in the southern part
of Indiana, informed me that the wheat
crop this year would not yield morn than
eight or ten bushels to the acre. The av
erageproduce of the best wheat soil in this
part of the country was not mor in ordi
nary years than eighteen bushels to the
acre as it produces too much straw, though
not one farmer in fifty applies any manure
to his fields, However, Indian corn ay.
erage seventy-five bushels to the acre.
Four years ago, the price of this grain
was only ten cents a bushel in Southern
Indiana, and the ordinary price was only
about fifteen cents before the railway was
opened. Barley is more productive than
wheat, often giving fifty-five b labels an
acre when the crop is winter sown."—
Genesee Fa mer,
A blsskleg passing through a town in
Ohio, bought a hat for $B, and gave in
payment a $5O bill, The hatter called
on a merchant near who changed the note
for him, and the blackleg having received
his $42 change went his way. The next
day the merchant discovered the note to
be counterfeit, and called upon the hatter
who was compelled (ourthwith to borrow
850 of another friend to redeem it with ;
but on turning to search for the blackleg
he' had left town, so the note was useless
on the hatter's hands. The question is,
what did, he lose—was it $5O besides the
hat, or was it $5O including the hat.
A New Bwindlng Dodge—How The Girls
didn't make a Fortune.
There appeared in the Dispatch, of the
80th ult.. tho following advertisement:
WANTED TO ENDAOE.—Two Of three
young hither, for a new, genteel and respec.
table business, by which they can make
from $7 to $9 per week. A capital of
$lO required. Apply at No. 24 Fifth
street. Room 8.
There are a great many young ladies
who would be glad to learn a respectable
business by which they could make from
seven to ten dollars a week—no mean
"plum" at the end of the year in any la
dy's pocket. So “Room No. 8" was be
sieged by young ladies who desired initia
tion into the mysteries of so pleasant and
profitable a business. They found there a
very affhle and genteel man, who had en
gaged the room, and they going out and
in, now and then, another genteelly dress
ed man, who was a silent partner in the
business. There was too, a good deal of
raw material, in the shape of many color
ed and beautiful papers, and such other
Indications of busines as led them to be•
lieve that there was something to be done
and learned, of value to them. So sev
en of them engaged and paid over ten dol
lars each as the terms requires—which
was dog cheap, any one will say, for a
knowledge of n business that would net
ten dollars a week ! and they sat about
But the advertisement also attracted the
attention of the Mayor, and he suspected
how suspicion grows on a man who has to
do with the wickedness of the race ! ..that
the business into which the young ladles
were to bo inducted, had as false a oottom
as a gambler's deal box. So he sent an
officer to watch over the girls in No. 8.
The officer went and inspected the premi
ses. The girls were hard at work cut-
ting, pasting, scissoring, painting; and
pretty little signs with "Hot Punch,"
"Fresh' Oysters," 'Oyster Soup," ''No
Trust," dec., or, them--•the like of which
you will see in all shops, saloons, and eat-.
ing houses—were being prettily devised
and ingeniously put togethei. The man
of besiness seemed engrossed in oversee_
tag and instructing. So the officer went
away, and reported that legitimate trade
was being carried on, and that everybody
looked cheerful. Suspicion was lulled,
and the Mayor thougi.t nothing inure of the i
Presently a second advertisement ap

office. A young man in the city having
that amount idle, as well as himself, wrote
as directed, and was requested, in reply,
to call at "Room No. 8; Iron city Build

mated sight that so Imposed on the officer.
and lister ing to the blandishments of the
man of business, lie invested the capital
and embarked in the enterprise.
On Monday last, the young man, we are
told, appeared at the Mayor's, detailed the
methods which had been used to allure him
into the investment of his seventy-five dol
lars, and stated that he suspected that his
ser.ior partner, as well as the senior's si
lent partner, had left the city, as ho has
seen nothing of thorn that day, and could
hear nothing of them. The Mayor, recur
ring to his "original view" of the enter
prise, coincided in
. his conclusions, and
started with him for 'No. 8: As soon as
the Mayor entered, the girls—some ten of
them then—recognized him at once, end
divining the true state of tho case, burst out
into the most hilarous merriment. They
gave his Honor a description of the origi
nators of the enterprise, and forming them
selves into a committee of ways and means
concluded to carry on the business till the
material on hand was all worked up—a
very sensible conclusion. The young man
who had invested tho seventy-five dollars,
also concluded to make the best of a bad
bargain, and took charge of the enterprise.
While the May or was there two or three
ladies came in, who wanted to invest their
ten each, and learn the art, by which seven
or ten dollars can be made in a week.— l
When they wore informed of the melan
choly collapse of the concern they would
hardly believe it, and instated that the girls
already employed were like gold diggers
who strike a lucky lead, and represented
prospects discouraging, purposely to keep
others from entering into the business.—
They were at last convinced, and went a
way with their ten dollars and their origi
nal ignorance of the valuable and pleasant
and profitable enterprise. The ten dam
sets and the manager, we regret to say,
were much discouraged when they learned
—as they did when they undertook to sell
the articles made up—that the market va
lue of a “Fresh Oyster" sign or a ..Hot
Punch" sign, had been greatly exaggera
ted by the now missing proprietors. That
in fact, instead of being worth a dollar a
piece, they would not command over t‘ven
ty.five cents when the market was the live.
liest. But we believe they are still in the
trade, and if any of our readers want such
signs and ornaments for their shops, they
should go to "Room No. 8" to purchase.
The missing partnere, in the meantime,
will be looked up.

The success of my treatment in the above di
