Hotbj' M agasine of horticulture for Ann<t, ku an article on Strawberry Culture, from wbioh we make the following extract: We shall now detail the two mode* panned by the onltiTKtor* around Boston. We My two, for there may be other*, bat we Uke moh u we hare witneaaed, and these comprise the Belmont system and that panned by Mr. Seott, end *oate other*. The Belmont growers prepare their ground well by aomeerop the preriona year to planting. They manure well and plough deep, and ae toot their plania in April or May. Tbeee are plant* ed in nogle rows, about a foot apart in tk* row, end just four fat fromjow to row, running the whole width and length of the ground, with an occasional cross alley of three feet for eaay aoaeas to the centre of the field. The ground la kept oleea entil the runners bwla to apread rapialy towards thelaatof Jane, when no more labor ia required daring the eeaaon, other than to pull oat e few weeda, for the young planta so quickly and completely cover the ground that ary few weeds will start up. By the antumn, *.% e a. * a ?? me wooje grouna win ne covered, wnen a wais boot a foot wide is cleared oat in the middle of the rows, "leaving solid beds of plants just three feet wide. This walk is for the pickers to stand in, also to afford air and light to the plants. On the approach of winter the beds are covered with meadow hay, which is removed in the spriDg, except that in the walks between the beds, which is left undisturbed in order to keep the frnit olean. The fruit begins to ripen about the middle of June, and is usually all gathered by the 10th of July, when the beds are itisnediately turned under with the plow, a new plantation made in the spring supplying the crop for the next year. The Bext spring the land is well manured and planted with potatoes or some other erop, and the following year is ready for another plantation of strawberries. This is the mode now pursued bj the best Belmont cultivators with the Hovey's Seedling, and though an old plan, pursued by English Cultivators as we have above shown, it was entirelv original here with Mr J. O T.r><>hn who first trie3 it, and with to much success tbat nearly all follow it. Tha old plan wii to keep the bedi two or three jeara, and this is still followed bj those who raisa the Old Virginia. As regards fertilisers, the Belmont growers plaat six rows of Hovey's Seedling, and then one or two rows of Jenny Lind, Boston Pine, or Brighton Pine. These are ampla to thoroughly fertilise tha plants. These sorts are subjectad to the same treatment?all plowed ap after one erop. Tha system pursued by Mr. Scott and aoaie <>f the extensive Brighton growers is different. It is as follows: The beds are marked oat three feet apart, with an alley of a foot, (which is i'ust the same as tha Belmont growers allow;) at tun rows of plant* are set oat in each bed, instead of one; these are planted about nine inehes from the edge, tearing a spaee of about eighteen laches between the two rows. The plants are allowed to corer all tha ground, (three feat wide,) tha runners in the walks baing cleared away. Tha treatment the first year is Just as we hare detailed with the Belmont growers. Bat instead of plowing ap the beds after the first crop, they are allowed to stand the second year, keeping then clean and restoring superfluous runners. The orop the seoood year is *ood. but sot eaual to tha first: after that thar are plowed and the ground cultivated a year or two with aome orop, when it it again occupied with strawberries The difference in the two modec i? thU: The fruit of the Belmont grower* ia In the highest perfection every year, (excepting drought,) with less labor in planting the beda at first, and in keeping down the weeds the second year. By the Belmont plan, there ia a crop every other year; by the Brighton plan, two crop* in three years. But it is belierea that the extra site and product of the Belmont system will yield a much greater profit than the inferior sise and diminished product of the second year on the Brighton plan. What the exact erop of Mr. Scott is per acre, taking the two years, we do not know, but the erop of Mr. Wellington was 4100 quarts in 1869, 4000 in I860, and this year, in eonsMuenoe of the dry weather, leas than 3.500. The difference in the expense of culture is, we should suppoee, not large; but the crop must be smaller and inferier the second year. TO KIFSM LATB TOM ATOM. The tomato aeason ends with the first part of autumn If the plants are pulled up nefore the froat oomes. and hung up in a well-Tentilated oeliar, with the tomatoea on them the fruit will oontinue ripening until Christmas. The oeiiar Mould not be too dry nor too warm? Gin. Farmer. [In Britain we hang them np under the roof of a vinery or peaoh-hooM, from whieh the fruit hu been gathered. In this way they ripen, although quite green when removed from the ground. So excellent a fruit, however, deeervee to be grown throughout the winter, whieh is easil r done by growing them hi twelve inch pota, ana setting them in a melon or oucamber pit, after the melon crop ii finished In a mean temperature of 66 dec. they will continue to grow and ripen their fruit until the eeaaon returns for eommenclng melon culture again ]?Seotti,ik Parmer arid Horticulturist. * Til Pcppt THAT WAS " MiSCrACTtlir IT Jakes P."?P , of 8t. Peter haa the following huge story told about him: Whila reading his paper, he saw an aceount of how sdme San Francisco Yankees advertise, by means of marking their plaoe of business upon a white dog, and sending him out into the atreeta. As our friend ia proprietor of a chair factory, the thought struck him that he might juat aa well introduce thia eheap and novel method into St. Peter, by marking a few docs with his stencil plate*. So he cautht hia dog, a short-haired 'ear, marked kin, and started him into the streets. After taking his dicaer, while 1 ottering in the bar-room of the " American," P had e great deal to .ay about his new method ef advertising.
