IS A FARM PROFITABLE.
I see the above question is often asked is
your journal. It might as well be asked, is
trade profitable ? Can commerce be so man
aged as to secure a competency to him who
invests hi* capit >1 in ships and merchandize
to send to foreign ports ? Can the lawyer,
withaM his hard study and diligent applica
tion of knowledge to the various exigencies
of life secure a living for hiinselfand tamily ?
Can the mechan c. after ceaseless labor and
toil, earn his daily bread, or anything more ?
Now, sir. t' e man who is incompetent
for what he undertakes will not succeed in
either of the ah occupations, and it is the
same with farming. He who would earn
his bread by farming, and anything more,
roust have grounds and must know how to
cultivate 'he grounds—be must know what
kind of seed is suitable for peculiar soils—he
must know how to sow, and when to plant,
and when to mow, aud what preparation is
necessary before putting the seed into the
ground. We not only have the promise of
u seed tune and harvest," but we have the
assurance of a crop, if the right seed is put
into the right ground.
Let a man select a sterile piece of land,
and perhaps, take the wrong kind of manure,
spend SSO in preparing one acre of ground
for the seed aud he mav not find a crop that
will half pay him for his labor and expense
of preparation ; but let him take a suitable
piece of ground, and with less than half the
labor and expense, the crop will pay him
100 per cent, on his investment. It is 6o in
every pursuit of life. In order to succeed in
life, an an must unders , and his business and
must apply himself to whatever he under
takes Some never succeed in anything.
From the want of common un 'ersfanding.
thev fail in everything, while others, with
much less labor and hnsMe, succeed iu what
ever they wish to pursue.
In all probability nr> investment of a small
amount pay s better than what is judiciously
expended in farming. Every dollar risrbf ly
expended is generally sure to pav double,
or treble. The gains are sh>w to be sure,
but the investments are generally' light.
Let a man be so sitna'ed that he could ad
vantageously use §50,000 in preparing
ground for the seed, and he would be more
6urely remunerated, than he would in buy
ing merchandize, and selling, for cash, and
on time, as business is usually conducted.
The farmer is often discouraged, because
of small gam He forgets the small amount
invested. The average of those who live by
farming in New England are not worth ovei
§2.000. I sir, think, from careless observa
tion, that it will appear that more men have
become rich—l mean what country peopP
call rich—from furn.irg than from any other
pur*uit.— New England.
A New Hero.— General BTRNSIDE is AT
last a hero ! Foiled at Fredericksburg, he has
conquered in Kentucky. Obeying the man
dates of his masters at Washington, he took
such measures, during the recent election in
that State, as to secure what is called and re
joiced over by the Abolition press as a Re"
publican v ctory. The moment he proclaim
ed martial law in Kentuekv his designs were
made pla nly manifest ; and no one who had
any respect for liberty or law failed to regard
with utter contempt the disgraceful opera
tions of ibis miseiable tool of a faithless and
imbecile Administration. He has at length
won a battle, and he should at once be pro
noted for his brilliant services. It is to be
hoped that his hue success will not turn top
sy-mrvy the small quantity of brains that
were lett him afieer he da-hed a gallant ar
my against the iton walls of Fredericksburg*

fall into, disorder and
decay. The scrofulous
contamination is variously caused by mercurial
disease, low living;, disordered digestion from
unhealthy food, impure air, filth and filthy
habits, the depressing vu**, and. above all, by
the venereal infection. Whatever be ita origin,
it is hereditary in the constitution, descending
"from parents to children unto the third and
fourth generation ;" indeed, it seems to be the
rod of Ilim who says, " I will visit the iniqui
ties of the fathers ujion their children." The
diseases which it originates take various names,
according to the organs it attacks. In the
lungs, Scrofula produces tuliercles, and finally
Consumption ; in the glands, swellings which
suppurate and become ulcerous sores; in the
stomach and liowels, derangements which pro
duce indigestion, dyspepsia, and liver com
plaints; on the skin, eruptive and cutaneous
affections. These all having the same origin,
require the same remedy, viz. purification and
invigoration of the blood. Purify the blood,
and tlies- dangerous distem|iers leave you.
With feeble, foul, or corrupted blood, you can-,
rot have health ; with that " life of the flesh"
healthy, you cannot have scrofulous disease.

this afflicting distemper, and for the cure of the
disorders it entails. That it is far superior to
any other remedy yet devised is known by all
who have given it a trial. That it does com
bine virtues truly extraordinary in their effect
upon tins class of complaints, is indisputably
proven by the great multitude of publicly
known and remarkable cures it has made off
the following diseases : King's Evil or
Glandular Swellings, Tumors, Erup
tions. Pimples, Blotches and Sores, Ery
sipelas Hose or St. Anthony's Fire. Salt
Bheum, Scald Head, Coughs from tu
berculous deposits in the lungs, White
Swellings, Debility, Dropsy, Neuralgia,
Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Syphilis and
Syphilitic Infections, Mercurial Diseases,
Female Weaknesses, and, indeed, the whole
series of complaints that arise from impurity
of the blood. Minute reports of individual
cases may be found in ITER'S AMERICAN
ALMANAC, which is furnished to the druggists
for gratuitous distribution, wherein may be
learned the directions for its use, and some of
the remarkable cures which it has made when
all other remedies had failed to afford relief.
Those cases are purposely taken from all sec
tions of the country, in order that every reader
may have access to some one who can speak to
him of its benefits from personal experience.
Scrofula depre-ses the vital energies, and thus
leaves its victims far more subject to disease
and its fatal results than are healthy constitu
tions. Hence it tends to shorten, and does
greatly shorten, the average duration of human
life. The vast importance of these considera
tions has led us to spend years in perfecting a
remedy which is ad- quate to its cure. This
we now offer to the public under the name of
AYER'S SARSAPARILLA, although it is com
posed of ingredients, some of which exceed the
best of Sars i/KtrilJa in alterative power. By
its aid you may protect yourself from the suffer
ing and danger of these disorders. Purge out
the foul corruptions that rot and fester in the
blood; purge out the causes of disease, and
vigorous health will follow. Bv its peculiar
virtues this remedy stimulates the vital func
tions, and thus t'xfiels the distempers which
lurk within the system or burst out on any
part of it.
We know the public have been deceived by
many compounds of S*irstiiirilla, that promised
much and did nothing; but thev will neither be
deceived nor disappointed in this. Its virtues
have been proven by abundant trial, and there
remains no question of its surpassing excellence
for the cure of the afflicting diseases it is in
tended to reach. Although under the saron
name, it is a very different medicine from any*
other which has been i.efore the people, and is
far more effe<-tiial than any other which has
ever beeu available to them.
The World's Great Remedy for
Coughs, Colds, Incipient Con
sumption, and for the relief
of Consumptive patients
in advanced stages
of the disease.
This has been so long used and so univer
sally known, that we need do no more than
assure the public that its quality is kept up to
the best it ever has been, and that it may bo
relied on to do all it has ever done.
