The subjoined abstract of a prize essay on the cultivation of Potatoes, was pub lished in the Advocate, about this time last year, and was so much sought alter by our agricultural readers, that wc have thought it would be doing them an accep table service to publish it again, especially os it is the subject of inquiry sod discus sion now pending before the Farmers' Club of this district: This is a crop almost as universal as corn, and one which every farmer or gar dener is sure to raise, if but ever so small a patch. In an essay, for which a prise of SIOO offered by Rev. Mr. Wylie, of Pennsylvania, was paid to D. A. Compton, of Wayne county, Pa., who had been en gaged in tanning from early youth, we give, says the American Farmer, the fol lowing as the substance of the essay : The toil best suited for potatoes is a warm, dry, sandy, or gravelly loam, well filled with decayed vegetable matter —new lands, or those lately denuded of the forest, if no* too damp, produce tubers of the beat quality, and grown under such circumstan ces, the potato always cooks dry aud mealy, and with a flavor and aroma not to be ob tained in older soils. Clayey soil he thinks cannot produce the potato in perfection as to quality, but in favorable seasons large crops of coarse fleshed tubers can be raised. He enriches the soil by plough ing under elover, buck wheat, peas, or other green crops, or by swamp muck that has been drawn to the field in winter, exposed in mall heaps to the ft-rat. and mixed in the spring with a little lime to neutralise the acid. Sea-weed he consid ers as having no superior os manure for potatoes, if bountifully applied. Mr C. thinks that stable manure predisposes the tuber to rot, detracts from its flavor, aud that not half as large a crop can be raised with it as that other manures, and conse quently no stable or green barn-yard manure should be used on this crop. This is very contrary to the practice almost universally adopted. It is a good plan to sprinkle a handful of super phosphate, wood ashes, or lime in the bills at planting, and an equal quantity of wood ashes, or lime slacked in strong salt brine, just before the last hoeing. Astonishing results are obtained from dusting the vines, as soon as they are fairly through the soil, with plaster, and again immediately after the last ploughing and hoeing; and at iutor vaia through the whole growing season— the first dressing light, the second heavier, and after that more bountiful, to the extent of 200 the. to the acre—the action of plaster is fatal to many of the fungus fami ly, and renders the plants less palatable to insects, the vines retain a bright lively color, and the tubers continue swelling until stopped by the froet; the tubers are less liable to rot, and more easily kept till spring. Mr. Compton has seen a field, oil of the some soil, all prepared alike, and ail planted with the same variety, at the same time, on one-baif of which, that had re ceived no plaster, the yield was about 60 bushels per acre, and many rotten ; while the other half, to which plaater had been applied in the manner above described, yielded 360 bushels to the acre, and not an unsound one among them. It is ad visable to change the location as well os the potato—loamy soil frequently used in their culture is apt soon to become heavy, compact and lifeless, and troubled with weeds, aud deterioration in Quantity and quality soon render the crop unprofitable Mr. Compton thinks that the poor results attending cat tubers are traceable to poor ones improperly cut—Urge, mature, sound tubers should be used, cut in pieces two or three eyes each with as much flesh as pos sible around and under each eye, to the centre of the tuber. The best and most extensive growers procure new seed every two or three years. When the tops arc two inches high, run a corn plough 5 inches deep, c/ose to the hills, turning the furrows /rum the hills; plough both ways —thus standing on the squares of the earth, warmed on alt sides by the air and sunlight, the potatoes grow rapidly. As soon as the tops are 6 or 7 inches high, plough 7 inches deep, midway between the rows, turning the furrow to the hills. Hoeing is generally unnecessary, but when Deeded, draw mellow earth to the plants, with the hoc, keeping the top of the hills somewhat hollow to catch the rain—then, as far as stirring the soil is concerned, let it alone, as after a certain age new tubers ; arc formed, each time the soil is disturbed: and if the last ploughing be deferred until tho vines are large, a groat proportion of small potatoes is sure to bo the conso- 1 quenoc. Tho ploughing for patatoes should be thorough and deep, and pulverized well by harrowing and rolling As soon as the frost is out of the ground and the ground is prepared as suggested above, lay off the rows 3 feet apart. The views presented by Mr. C. are worthy consideration by 1 every potato planter tlie nearest road home. It wonld be fully | dark when she wonld pa*H bis house, and the chances were that he would not see her. She wouldn’t hare him sen her for , I Hi h 1 1 Her first impulse was to harry up; but some powerful influence prompted her to ) U *op. She did so, and stood timidly at the , ( further side of the road, gaiing longingly at I i the house that had been a home for her- I t first of happiness, then of misery. By and j c by she felt an irresistible yearning to look u at the Ulterior of the room once more, c Ho was evidently within, and there was no d danger that he wouid see ter So she h waited hurriedly across the road, opened s the gate, and softly stepped into the lawn, k Another moment she was at the window tl Inokimr in. pi How to Renew old Ftaoh Trees. j Peach trees of the age of ton aud fifteen I years in moat eases begin to fail. After every heavy crop aud after every cold I winter there is more or less of dead wood lin tho trees. If this is taken out every | year or two as it should be, the bearing wood remaining will every year be further ! from the trunk ui the tree, and consequent | iy the fruit will be out ou tho ends of long branches. Every experienced fruit grower must have observed how much inferior peaches so growing are, compared to thoee growing on a sprout or young branch that may have grown out where a branch was taken off the year previous. Now for the remedy. , The pruniug-kuife and a fine tooth saw and a Udder are all the tools necessary. The branches should be sawn off at a distance of from one to five feet from the trunk of the tree. Trees of the age 1 have named will in most cases have a fine young sprout started from the large branches that should be preserved, aud the old branch sawed off three or four inches above the strangest sprout or sprouts. The pruoing-knife should be used to smooth off the surface made by the saw, it being a noted fact that roc begins much soon er on a sawed surface thauon a cut surface. The month of January I consider tho best season to do it, though the first part of February will do very well; but bear in , mind the colder tho weather and the more the frost is in the wood the more vigorous will bo the new growth the following sea son. The sap is at that season in the roots. The mild weather of February, 1 especially toward the Utter part of the > month, starts the up. Large branches I taken off at Chat time will bleed, and it is a well known fact that the sap is the life of ■ the tree. There may be old branches where there are no visible sprouts or buds where it U necessary to saw it off. If branches of that kind are sawu off nut less than three feet from tho trunk of the tree, there will be plenty of dormeut buds that will r start from it. The question with many . will be, the trees arc full of buds for an . expected crop. If the trees have not yielded a crop the year previous the r branches arc very full of fruit buds, and if ! you cut off fuiiy one third of the Urge - branches, the tree will not have ail the l fruit it can mature properly, and I am satisfied if but one-half was left on in sea sons of Urge crops, the one-half would net 1 more money than ail. Besides you will have a young growth for the next year, , from which you will gather fruit as good . if not better than that grown on young 1 trees. The trees should have thorough .. cultivation, and manure of some kind. If f the Und U light, bone dust, ashes or stable manure can bo used on trees of that age . without risk of breeding injurious insects. „ Stable manure applied to young peach trees . appears to increase the depredation o( the . borer. Mack applied alone or mixed with s ashes or a little lime is good. How il strange thousands of dollars arc annually v sent oat of the State fur the many puffed up phosphates, Ac., when the very Farmers I who bay it, perhaps, have thousands of . 1 loads of the most valuable of plant food on ■ their farms. I, fur one, am not surprised k at the cry of hard times, money scarce, 9 poverty of the Und, Ac. Farmers and i, fruit growers, wake up! It is high time ■ you were up and doing. —Peninsular .Veter B and Advertiser. On Soiling Stock. , At a recent gathering, where nearly all 1 the speakers were practical farmers, and i most of them engaged in making milk, one 1 . of them spoke earnestly and decidedly in | r favor of soiling the stock. LIU opinion . was formed after grazing bis cows fur years , upon natural pastures, upon pastures form- I i ed by ploughing mowing lands and then 1 j re-seeding, and then by cutting the forage . and feeding it out in the barn. He had i : no doubt but the Utter courrc would be : : generally cheaper, aud in the long run, ! easier, aud that it would produce mure milk ; i than cither of the two former modes. , By proper care in feeding and giving | i the stock opportunity fur exercise at suita-1 • bie times, the health of the stock could be | i preserved just as perfectly as it U when they run in pastures. Fed and tended in ! i the barn, they will get clean water regu- I Urly and abundantly, and their meals at . regular intervals. That will be a great . gain over many pastures where water is . taken from stagnant pools—sometimes in an offensive condition—and in other cases, l where they can get no water, good or bad. " At the gathering of farmers at Lowell, . last September, Mr. H. Sedgwick, of Corn , wall, Ct, referring to the short feed of the r fall of 1871, said:— I ‘-Our fiirmers all declare they will not | I go back to the old way of feeding stock. \ | Wc cut up our straw and everything avail | able. Many of us hare adopted the pUn i | | of steaming the food for our cattle, and we I . I arc satisfied from the experiments we have . ■ made that wc save a third of our provender ii by steaming it. As a sample of what this . i ( manner of feeding stock will do, I will re i late an instance of a young man, who. a year ago this Ust spring, bought a farm of ; eighty acres of Und for SII,OOO. The farm then kept eleven cows, four or five yearlings, and a horse or two. The young . i man took hold of that farm and immedi ately put in fourteen acres of sowed corn, j , He increased the stock to twenty-five cows, and kept them on twelve acres, feeding 1 ■ them the sowed corn. and also cutting his i oats green fur food. Ilia receipts the first ■ ■ year were over $3,000. This year he has , summered on that same farm twenty seven -1 cows, and he told me the other day that . | his twenty-seven cows would average him j . i SIOO each from the profit of milk."—_V. | : 1 E. Farmer. Special Manure for Peach Trees. Mr. P. H. Foster, of Babylon, N’. Y., i in the Horticulturist, gives the fallowing . formula for a manure for Peach Trees: — j 1 ‘‘l have used, the past year or two. a , special manure on my peach trees witli I marked success. So far as I have tried it, | , I have found it equally good fur vegetables, and I see no reason why it is not a good manure for frait trees of all kinds; in fact, I have known it to bring peach trees that were dying with yellows, back into a bear ing condition. 1 think very likely it will: prevent the summer blight in pears, I i 1 intend to try it the coming season on small I : pear stock. I use for each acre, bruad ! cast, the same quantity as for an acre of - : potatoes, and the following are the proper- 1 lions: 120 Jte. Nitrate of Soda. 80 “ “ Potassa. 100 “ Superpboshsle of Lime. 1 160 “ Sulphate of Lime. . The N. of potassa should be ground. 1 I After mixing the above together, add tbroe (or lour parte of fine mack. When apply ; | ing the mixture for the benefit of peach i trees, spread evenly as far as the roots j extend, and before a rain.” Where these cbemieaU are not readily obtainable, a compost of wood ashes, bone dust and woods mould, make an excellent application, and one more suitable tban , animal manures. > I , i Sweet potatoes succeed best of course on a deep and rich sandy soil, with a warm exposure. The ground should be - well plowed, and harrowed fine. Plow in crosses four feet square, and at each an gle make a bole and fill it with some rich compost and the surface soil mixed, and draw op tbe earth so as to make a fiat hill, in each hill plant two sets, covering ~ about two inches deep, and as they grow j } keep drawing the earth around them with 1 the hoe.
