indurated ealeareous marl, showing many distinct
forms of ancient shells, of the tertiary formation ;
and this manly substance is scatteked all through the
soil, in a very euniminuted form, and in the exact
condition most easily assimilated by such plants as
the farmer desires to cultivate.
Marl, in all its forms, has been used to fertilize
crops in Englandi from the time it was occupied by
the Romans; and in France and Germi.ny a marl
bed is counted on as a 'valuable bed 44 manure, that
can be dug` and carted and spread over the field.—

township, Gloucester county, who purchased soma
oight miles north of Molville,,about three years age,
Tor the purpose of establishing ale Sin mill, to work
up the timber into lumber, to send off by , the new
roam:W, as well as the firewood: and coal, for which
he built a branch track a mile a nd a half Ling. H.
also furnished sixteen miles of the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the mill profitable, though
his main object was to .open a farm, having become
convinced soil watovaltiable for cultivation.
In this-het.has. nut been disappointed, as some of his
,oropir, prove. For humus, last year, the second
time of cropping, 806 bushel! of potatoes on one
acre, worth 60 fonts a bushel in the field. This year
seven acres, without manure, produced 856 bushels
of oats. In one - field,' the first crop was potatoes,
planted among -ibis rob's. and yielded 75 bushels.—
The Potatoei; were dug, and wheat sown, and yield
ed 26 bushels '
- and'th e s tubble turned under and
sown .to buokwheat,' which yielded 33i bushels :
and then theground was sown to clover and timothy,
which. gave as a first ;crop 2 tons per acre.
The fertilizers applied to these crops were first,
ashes from clearings; second, 225 pounds of super
phosphate of lime; third, 200 Teoundo Peruvian gu
ano; then 50 bushels of slaked lime has been spread
upon the clover since it was mowed, and turned in
