of Solon llobinson, Esq., published in the New York
Tribune, in reference to %indeed. All persona eau
read this report with interest.
Advantages of Fanning near lionte—Vineland—Re
marks upon Marl—,Soil. its great.-Fertility—The
Cause of Fertility--Amount of Crops Produced--
It it eertuinly one of the most extensive fertile tractsy
in an almost level position, and ;w r itable condition for
pleasant farming that ore know of this side of the west
ern prairies. We found some of the oldest farms appar
ently just as profitable productive as when first cleared
of forest fifty or u hundred gears ago.
The geologist would soon discover the cause of this
continued fertility. The whole country is a marine
deposit, and all through the soil we found evidences
of calcareous substances, generally in the form of
indurated calcareous !marl, showing many distinct
forms of ancient. shells, of the tertiary formation;
and this manly substance is Seattered all through the
soil, in a very comminuted 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 England, from the tittne it was occupied by
the Romans: and in France and GermLny a marl
bed is counted on.as a valuable bed of manure, that
can be dug and carted and spread over the field.
How much more valuable then it must be, when found
already mixed through the soil. where new particles will
be turned up and exposed, and transformed to the owner's
use every time he stirs the earth.
Raying, then satisfied our minds of thecause, they
Rill not be excited with wonder at seeing indubitable
evidence of fertility in a soil which in other situa
tions, Laving the same general_ characteristics or at
least appearances, is entirely unrenumerative except
as its Prothictiveness is proMoted by artificial fertil
A few vrortts about the quality and value of this

Our first:visit was to William D. Wilson, Franklin
township, Gloucester county, who purchased some
.eight miles,north of'illiflville, about three years-ago,
for the purpose of establishing a steam mill, to work
up the timber into lumber, to send off by the nen
railroad, as well as the firewood and coal,, for which
he built a branch tracks mile and a half long. He
also furnished. sixteen miles cf the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the mill profitable, though
his main object was to.open n farm, haying become
convinced that, the soil was valuable for cultivation.
this he has not been disappointed, as some of his
.crops prove. For instance, last. yesr, the second
time oncropping, 306 bushels of potatoes on one
acre, -worth 60 cents a bushel in the tell. This year
seven acres, without. manure, produced 356 bushels
of oats. In one field, the first crop was potatoes,
planted timing the roots, and yielded 75 bushels.—
The potatoes were dug, and wheat sown, and yield
ed 16 littshels ; and the stubble turned under end
sown- to bliekwhcat. which yielded 33 a bushels ;
and then theground was sown to clover and timothy,
'which gave as Ore.' crop 2+ tons per acre.
The fertilizeri applied to these crops were first,
ashes fromcleaiings': second, 225 pounds of super
phosphate of lime; third, 200 pOunds Peruvian gu
ano; then 50 buehels Of slaked lime has been spread
upon the'Clover since it was mowed, and turned in
, Mr. Wilson's growing crops. and the wheat stub
ble of"tlie present season, all indicate his land as
roduCtivc as any part of the State.
