To me all rental luxuries are fables; Oh 1 where's the Spring in a rheumatic leg stiff as a table s? In short, all panegyrics He. in fullmtuc odes too many to be cited; ||ita Sow to have s Heat Farm. To those who are desirous of giving more orderly appearance to their premises, but who don’t quite know Vhat to take hold of first, Hearth and Home offers some helpful hints: Take a yoke of cattle or a span of horses, and pnt them to a wagon or a cart. Fasten a stone boat behind. On the atone boat put a crowbar, a pick, I a hoc, a spade, an ax, a saw, a bush-hook or seythe. a hammer, nails, spikes, a few bolts of different sixes, a monkey wrench, and such other tools as you will be likely to want, and drive along the side of every fence on the farm. If you come across a piece of board or a broken rail throw it into the wagon. If you find a plow point, a cultivator tooth, a broken reaper guard, a horse-shoe, an oil-can, or an old hue, put it on thg stone-boat and bring it home. Stones may be thrown on and drawn to some convenient place. If a board is loose on the fence, put a nail in it. If a gate sags, straighten it up. If there are any bolts in the gate, see that the nuts are tight. Take a man or a boy, or both, along with you. Von will find plenty of work. If there is a plank bridge across a stream, see that the sleepers are not rotten. The hot son has probably warped the planks, and they will need another spike or two. If there are any slicks or weeds in a ditch, remove them, and throw om any dirt that may have been trodden in from the side by the cattle or hogs. In this way go over the whole farm. Then attend to the barn yards. Pick up anything that may be lying around and pat it in its proper place. Boards that are of any use should be placed in a pile by themselves under cover. Those that are useless should be sawn, and split up into kindling, to be piled by itself in the wood-shed. If there are any loose stones in the yards, draw them off. Scrape up all tho scattered manure or dirt, and place it in a compact heap where it will ferment, or draw it at once on the grass land and spread it Go into the garden and sec if there is ant rubbish there that ahonld be removed, or any sticks nr pieces of boards or tools to pick up. Possibly you will find sumo barrel staves or hoops abont. Make kindling of them. If there is any old iron about the premises, it is a good time to dispose of it. It is worth one and a half cents per pound. Old imple ments, machines, tools, etc., that are worn ont and of no farther use, had hotter be knocked to pieces and the iron sold. If there are any parts that may be useful in repairing, they should be preserved by themselves. This is true of the wood work as well as of the eastings. Almost every thing, sooner or Ister, comes in use on a farm. But unless yon have abundance uf room, it does not pay to lumber up the premises with useless implements and ma chines. Have all your bags mended ; mark them and hang them up. Mark all the forks, rakes, hoes, spades, shovels, corn cutters, etc. Rob them over with petroleum, and pnt them in their proper places. All har vest tools and machines should be painted with petroleum and stowed away. If you are snort of room, much space may be saved by taking the wheels off the steel toothed rake, and the poles and cutter-bars of the mower and reaper. Any one who has not tried it will be astonished bow matry implements and machines may be stowed away in a small space. Tills will do for a beginning. Then, when any im plement is done with for the season, rub it over with petroleum and stow it away. When once things are in order, it is a comparatively easy matter to keep them in order; but still it is a daily work. It is, however, work that pnys over and over again. Roles tor the Care of Sheep. 1. Keep sheep dry under foot, with litter. This is more necessary than roofing them. Never let them stand or lie in mud or snow. 2. Take up ram iambs early in the summer, and keep them up until Decem ber let, following, when they may be turned ont. 3. Begin graining with the greatest care, and use the smallest quantity at first. 4. Give the lambs a little mill feed in time of weaning, and never frighten sheep if possible to avoid it 5. Separate the weak, or thin, or sick, from the strong in the fail, and give them special care. 6. If any sheep is hart, catch it at once and wash the wound; and if it is fly time, apply spirits of turpentine daily, and al ways wash with something healing. If a limb Is broken bind it up with splinters tightly, loosening is the limb swells. 7. Keep a number of good bells on the sheep, to frighten dogs. 8. Do not let the sheep spoil their wool with chaff or bnrs. 9. Cut tag-locks in early spring. 10. For scours give pulverised alum in wheat bran ; prevent by taking great care in changing dry fur green feed. 11. Hhear at once any sheep commenc ing to shed its woo), unless the weather is too severe, and save carefully, the pelt of any sheep that dies. Home of tho Catawba Grape. The following extract from a letter uf 11. W. Baveoel, Esq., the distinguished botanist of South Carolina, written to the Ganlrner t Monthly. giro* a true state ment as to the native home of the Catawba ■grape “The place of its origin has al ways been ascribed to the French Broad Biver, in Buncombe county, North Caro Ihm. not far from Asheville, and on the y, tho son of 'as Srstfonnd, remembered, *1 vine at his eaten grapes UtoM vinca to his residence, and from thence took them to Washington, where I had thus stotem mt from Mr. Murry him- I its ntidEubted origin thert. . Planting Potatoes. Tho potato tho year was ,* failure 1 in quality on secuunt of the great heat Many tubers were so sconced that they became watery and rank * and some vert i near tho surface or partly exposed, assumed the green color and hitter taste of the vine, i making them unfit to toed even to stock, on account of the poisonous property engendered by the rays of the sun The remedy is, plant deep, from aix to seven inches. This for various reasons: It will permit very early planting—an ad vantage —securing thus the seed against the frost, or if reached by it, it will permit it gradually to draw out, which will save it; it will favor it in a drouth, and prevent the setting of tahers too near the surface, ao that the sun cannot injure them; hilling can also be dispensed with, and only the cultivator used to make mellow and keep out grass, with no danger of hnrting the roots or the tubers. By putting out early, with the first mellow soil, the potato will sprout and grow on, unimpeded in tho ground instead of the cellar, and get the benefit of the winter's moisture, which in an early drouth, is of importance. Particularly should the Early Rose be put out early. Tho ex perience here is decided and unvarying, that you cannot get it out too early in case you have mellow ground for it. It will grow in the worst uf weather, snow and frost excepted, and 1 seems to delight in it, while at the same time other sorts are at a Band still, thus making this emphatically what it is, an early potato. Plant close rather than wide apart, say twelve to fifteen inches in the row, as this sort keeps its tubers close together, a ne-t of them, and easily gathered. They will then also be of a medium rather than a large sixe. which is favorable to quality ; and by putting but one or two eyes in a hill, there will be few small potatoes. Thus a crop of Early Rose can be ripened verly early, and of a superior quality and yield. But the ground must be dry or well drained ; and as a guard against rot, there should be more sand than clay in the soil. Late sorts should receive the same treatment as early. They will then, by being put out very early, get the whole season a growth, and will ripen in time for dry gathering. A potato wants to be grown rather slowly, but continuously, and well ripened. It will then be sould and solid, fine grained, and uf better flavor ; also more mellow. Rank growth will give a rank taate, and a watery condition a less concentration of substance. Experience has demonstrated that it is bettor to manure in the hill than to apply broadcast. Better a poor soil, with some good fertiliser in the hill, than rich land ; and the best fertiliicrs arc ashes, guano, reduced bone, plaster, Ac. Ashes are a speeal manure for this plant. Will our farmers who arc not in the secret of early planting, try it this year. Try it on a small scale if no other. Put I ont with the very first mellow soil, if it is I in March ; but be sure and plant deep. ; never less than six, and better seven i inches. When 1 say better seven I mean ■ it particularly with the Early Rose. But do it with ail sorts. Do not fear the frost 1 with the seed so deep in the ground. Put 1 a good quantity of uulesched wood ashes i and bco dung in the hill if the soil Is not i rich. The ashes and dung should be . applied and covered at once, as soon as i mixed, as else the strength by tho union will escape, and that rapidly. Keep out i the grass, and keep the ground mellow.— i Country Gentleman. Manure. We had been taught that from the time , when the manure was first voided by the ' animal it was subicct to constant loss from the evaporation of ammonia—its most val uable ingredient—and that consequently it was the only safe plan to compost it with muek or some other absorbent material. Dr. Voeicker proved, by a scries of analy ' ses of manure at different stages of de composition. and after various sorts of treatment, that there is no formation of volatile ammonia except when tho mass is sufficiently large fur the accumulation of enough heat to favor an active decomposi tion, and that even then there is no evapo ration uf ammonia, fur the reason that the organic acids which are simultaneously I formed—arc always sufficient to take it up and form non-volatile compounds. At the same time, although these compounds arc not subject to evaporation, they arc highly i soluble, and the juices flowing from the dung-heap, and the rain-water passing through it, remove it most easily. Con : seqnently. it is of the greatest importance that manure should be kept under cover— if it is kept in store at all. The most im , portant deduction from these investigations is, that the much-reiterated recommcnda , tion of agricultural writers on no account should manure be taken to the field (unless , to be composted) until it could be almost - immediately plowed under the soil, was not well founded. The best practice of all, is one which many of the most successful farmers have always followed—and against which the agricultural press has leveled its biggest guns—the practice, namely, of ; hauling manure afield as soon as a few loads have accumulated, spreading it at once over the ground, and plowing it under i early or late or not at all, according to circumstances; the best effects following i its application to the surface of grass land, or its harrowing iutq the very topmost film , of plowed land. In neither of these cases can ammonia escape, because no volatile ammonia is formed, while the soluble parts i —are distributed through the soil by the water of rains the more evenly, the nearer , to the surface they lie. When they are i once absorbed by the soil they are held in an available futjn until required by the i roots of plants. Clover. i —; — i If clover for hay is left till very ripe without cutting, the starch and sugar of | the plant will change to woody fibre, thus i causing brittleness if much exposed, and 1! rendering the hay almost valueless. The j nectaries of clover heads, when fully de- I veloped, are rich in a honey-like liquid, I I bnnted for by bees, and if the crop is mown . before the seed ripens this saccharine pro perty will be preserved. In growing seed, it is common to pasture the first year's i growth, or cut a crop of hay, and leave r the second growth lor seed; but if the catling is not done early, the frost may ehock its growth, thua preventing its ma j tnrity After threshing, it is ran through ; a hulling machine, and then a fanning •! mil!. Clover is much more succulent than any of the grasses usually grown for hay, requiring more time to part with its mois ture, and should be ent only when free from dew. If dried by a hot snn, it Iteats in the sward, wilta, becomes dark-colored, and loses flavor and aroma. It ahonld be saved in the cock, and only so much mown at one time as can easily he bronght under cover if rain threatens. Make no hand or rake rolls; use forks; any unneeessary ooiupression breaks the structure of the plant, and makes the sap exude, which should at much as passible, while parting with its moisture, leave the elements in sointion as nature diatribntod them through the plant. The usual application uf salt at the time of patting it in the maw is beneficial. In special esses the mixing of elover hay with straw or other fodder of the previous season is desirable, especially if it be not thoroughly dried. Green elover hay imparts flavor, aroma, and freshness to old fodder, thus causing animals to re lish the admixture. Agriculture is the great leading interest of the world; the basis of all others.
