It is now no uncom mon thing for farmers to sow twonli, thiily, ami sometimes fifty bushels and upwards : and until ilhstanding tlio ll.ix is tiMi.illy de stroyed, the seed alone, as a general thing, pay s as well, ami frequently heller, than any oilier crop. The Mix is considered of no value fcom the fact, that the expense of pull ing, rolling, dressing anil prep uing for mar ket, over halauros its worth, and lienre fai-iiii-h have (suited to the unil expeditions modes of getting li.l of it, such as hurtling it, llirniving it into wetuiaishi places, Ste.

I wish to mention another impoitant fact .n maticii, to raising nax-seei. lime,, every lariuer should know-. .Several farmers ul . , , my acqnaiiitance, Iho past season, sowed ll ix-seed and barley on the same ground, and in every instance the.yield of evei v kind, as great as if sawed seperatelv, besides llix and barley straw combined, make very excellent foddfir.

If, by sow nig ll ,x. seed ami hirley logelber, twice the iiiuoiiiil j can bu oblaijied from the sanio ground, is it, not worth at least the consideration of every ! firmer ? communictions We Ii ivc. received several in reference to hrariic f fl.. v nuu ii irn'v nf't'i cr. u i n imv ini irnr n tiv t , ' c . pi'ir.e.nal e.-Jpei leniv.

I hive seven old apple decs which bad be come' hide bound, the haik being haul and scrubby, lo such a degree as to prevent the circulation of the sap, in consequence of which lltey bore very li.ilo fiuit and that of an infeiior quality. Around these trees I dug a trench about six feet from the trunk, and applied dung, plaster, ashes, and salt, mixed well with earth, and shaved the oilier bark from the tnlitu trunk of eath. The trees blossomed full, and to my surpiise, bore better fruit llitu bad ever biirno before. I have tried this experiment on other fiuit trees with equal success. Youts truly, Ki:unr..' WiiixLLit.

Ho had known a gander who hid visited his town as a magnetic lecturer, and who drew together an audience composed almost ontirely of geese. Their actions though quilu human, were still enough like geese to betray their nature.
