[Republished by request of the Committee on
Ploughing, like navigation,. has its
theory, as well es its practical part; and
the better both are understood, the more
profitable, and the easier the plough
man can perform hiswork.. The theory
Of ploughing differs much in different
soils, and in different seasons of the
year, arid for different kinds of crops;
for instance, if greensward, well- ma
reared, is turned over for corn in the
Spring, it .should not be ploughed so
deep as the came ground ploughed at
the same time without manure, for sum
mer-fallow, or buckwheat ground, sho' id
be. Also spring wheat ground, plough
ed in the spring, should not be ploughed
too deep, (I speak of our red-shale soil) ;
with few such exceptions, deep plough
ing suits me the best. And deep plough
ing I have practiced, both on this and
on the other side of the " briny ocean."
Mr. President, before I leave what I
think is in connection with the theory
of ploughing, I beg permission to con
demn one habit that I have seen in this
cuuntry,.and which is still more or less
practices, without any earthly reason
for so doing, only the same as the man
going to mill with grain in one end of
the bag and a stone in the other, be
cause his father and grandfather did so.
And that habit is cross-ploughing every
other year. It never was practiced in
the school that I have been to, except
ing summer-fallow or bailey ground ;
and in both those eases it is ploughed in
very large lands, in order not to make
it uneven ; for when the lands are
ploughed six or eight paces wide, (which
os the ordinary width of lands in dry
ground;) the whole field is thus made
uneven. Wherever the back-furrows
cross, it raises the ground, and wherever
the dead-furrows cross, it forms a wide
low spot, from which spots the surface
water can never be drained off; and af
ter heavy rain, water remains on such
spots, until the infant sprout catches
cold on its mother's lap, and it never
comes to maturity. Besides a loss of
several bushels of grain per acre, it
makes the ground unfit for both mower
and roller, when seeded down for a mea
If such practice is considered profita-_
ble among the stumps on new land,
then the stump machine itself certainly
ought to be considered a sufficient sign
that it is out of date for such fields as
the stump machine is used upon.
Much more could be said on the the
ory of ploughing, but I hasten, for I ex
pect others to speak, who I know are
fall as capable of handling both the
subject and the plough.
Next the practical part. Having no
ticed much negligence in performing
this important part of our occupation,
I have for many years considered it ne
cessary for some one to make a public
notice, and correct the negligent, and
teach boys a better style. And while I
am at that, the scientific and practical
ploughman will be considered as the
well man, who needs no medicine.
The first neglect I notice, is, not to
commence in the right place; and that
is, to plough a shallow furrow to form a
headland, the width of which should
be in proportion to the tearnB—if a sin
gle team, the length of the team, har
ness and plough will suffice ; if double,
so much wider; which furrow will
serve as a mark to keep the furrows uni
form in length. '
The headland should'be ploughed last,
in the same manner as the other lands,
reversing it every other year by back
furrowing it, in order to keep . it even. _
Nothing I despise more than to see a
man ploughing without headlands ; for,
by ploughing round, (or square, if you
please,) the team must be driven on the
ploughed ground, in every corner, tram
pling the furrows, until it looks more
like a road or brickyard than ground
turned over on which to produce a crop.
The second negligence, which is not
the least, is not to measure every land
before it is struck out, for it should be
uniform in width, and straight, in order
that the last:farrow may be whole and
avoid turning back in the middle of the
I hope none of these boys will ever
undertake to strike out a land without
a mark; for even our Bible teaches us
to look on the mark, and not turn back,
but hold our hands on the plo ugh straight
to the end. I hope you will have pride
enough to plough straight, if nothing
else. Show me a ploughman who has
no pride, and I will show you one that
I don't want to employ, to plough for
me; for I follow my occupation for plea
sure as much as for profit.
The - house-builder, and the wheel
right, &c., have their chalk-line and
square to use; and it is right they sho'ld
use them—for without they would waste
both time and lumber.
Why not plough by rule? Business
men have their detectors; farmers ought
to know how to detect poor ploughmen ;
for there are many worthy capitalists
who invest in agricultural pursuits, who
are not judges themselves ; and also
widows, having lost their life-mateg,
and are dependent on others to do their
First, they' can be detected generally
by their voice; but most always, like
hog-shearing, more noise than wool.—
Nest they curse, and whip or stone the
team, sending the plough to a warmer
climate, and him that made it, when in
fact the fault lies all behind the plough.
I beg leave to address myself once
more to you, boys. Never keep much
noise when ploughing, nor allow your=
selves to curse nor swear.
I have no doubt if the ploughing
match., once existing under the influ
ence of our county Fair, had been con
tinued, that it would have done much
good ere this. I propose that another
shall be organized. One sob-district is
enough in which to hold a ploughing
match. By so doing, we would raise a
spirit of pride and competition, without
which we shall never have the pleasure
of seeing much reform.

ALL persons interested in the production of pra , tl-

Investigate the merits or
NE.NDERSON'S HAND POWER LOOM.
This loom will do all kinds of hand weaving.
It will weave jeans, blankets, plain cloth, satinet,
kersey, flannel, seamless sack, double width blankets,
or any kind of cotton, wool, or flax cloth. It treads the
treadles, throws the shuttle, lets off the web, and takes
up the cloth. It makes the upper shed as the batten
comes forward, and beats up the filling after the cross
in mode, making better cloth and better selvage that,
can bo made in any other way.
It is the only hand loom that is suitable
for weaving wool,
as no loom that makes all the shed as the batten goes
back, will 'weave wool satisfactorily.
It has no strings to stretch and get out of order; has
treadles at both sides of the loom, making the shed
complete at both sides.
This loom is made to weave the different kinds of
cloth, by simply changing the pins that make the up
