Cowl, CLOVRIt. ITS VALUE Tim CATTI.i:. VOU SEED, AM) V II THE SHI I.. We hnve received ti eiiminunicatinn from Mr. Henry Brewer, nf Eifield, Toiupkins illuslrtiling flirongly thn value of clover. as o menus of keeping up iho lertiltty ol hts land, mid of rendering tis culture pro fitable. Mr. Brewer was frnin old Dutch es,, the land of clover. Do ptirchusuil lu lu mi in Enfield in tho year I!I30. nl (If) .10 per acre. It now gives a product ol from fifteen In fnriy dollars per acre per annum; and the improvement and Hm ptu- 1 1 1 he ascribes principally to llic cultiva tion nf clover. As Hie coinuuinicuiion is very lengthy, and having Ihe writer's per mission t.0 to do, we give the purport of it in n condensed firm. Mr. Brewer remarks, that Now York farmers pay lo those of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, nuniially, ninny ihousnud tlullars for clover seeil, which ihey nnghl raise for ihemselvet with profit. Ho would as soon 1 1 1 1 1 1 Ic of buying his seed nuts and seed wheal, as Ins clover seed. He prefers the soutliprn or dwarf clover, benniiso it ib fit tn cut five, or ten days earlier than tho tall growing or northern kind, nnd is more ccrlntn of ripening tho seed of iho second crop. Ho sows with his small grnin, at a rnto of 15 ib. per nere, and sotoeilmes ow his cornfields ufter ihe lnl ho"ing. Mr. Brewer appropriates In clover lo three very va'onblp itirpiises in ford hia slock, lo fertilize his In ml. and m fi'l b' purte nnd hrj has Miccecded admirably in them all, so far ns we can judge. His eat. He thrive upon it bold as a green nnd a dry crop in summer nml wtiuer ; his whpnt ami corn feed nnd thrive upon it. when buried nnd deciimpoiug in tho anil; nnd Ins purse increases with Hie increase nf bis eaiih.' nud his crop. And filially, besides feeding hi cal'le and ferlthz ng In Foil, Hie seed of Ins teciinil ciop gives him nn nereabli' profit, ninuinlly of from fifteen IQ fin. y dollars. Now there is no secret in the bu-itie nu patent rigln. I In gives; vou his whole process, i lint you may profit bv bis example if yon will. Wu will en deavor io give it in concise and plain terms. Clover is cither used for hoy or pa'luro Hie first crop, nnd uniformly for seed and lornge ihe second crop, If for pasture, ho turns upon it his stuck about tho first of May, nr when the soifhas become eo firm Hint the feet of the cattle will not potcli the snd. Al l his lime lb growth is such as to enable Hie cattle tu thrive. Ha pastures till about the twentieth June, and the closer it is cropped nt Ibis time, tho better, he thinks. The cuttle nrc then withdrawn, nntl tho second crop is permit 'ed to grow en (I ntninre its seed. If tho first crop is designed for buy, M is ctn irnui the twentieth to the twenty fifth of Juno, although it tuny tint hnve pass' d the bloom ir arrived al thai stale when most fanners loom it in a proper condition to cut. It i important lo cm it as early as Iho twenty huh. Mr. B. Hunks, in order to give tho -econd crop limo to grow nnd maiuro its seed before it is injured by ihe frosts of niuiioin five iJ'iys olien making a materi al diff'rence in the seed crop. We do not ike Mr. B.'s mode of curing ibis early cut clover: h" takes it when partially cur ed, in Ins liarn, and spreads ii about upon Mnfftlds nud pules till made, nnd then puis it uilo Ins bay. Tuts causes unnecessary labor. Cured in grass cocks occording lo our directions, il will bu ns good ns wiien spread over a barn, ond more than half ihn labor will bo saved. Mr. B. thinks clover hay made in the shade is much bet ter than Hint made in the sun. The next way of curiitj this green clover, eays tho writer, is with wIipoi straw, that ha9 been kept in I lie barn for that p'urpopp, by lay ing a course of hay nnd I hen of straw, and so on until ynu have it nil secured.'' The inipottaiice of mowing the first crop early, it tllu-trutod by i hfc fnct. thai one of Mr. II. 's neighbors who hail been persuaded to cut his fir-t ernp siime days earlier I linn usual, acknowledged that be should obtain last season, thirty bushels more clover aceu than usual, in consequence of it. i he seed crop is gathered with care and brought In the barn as soon as it is fi , ''iat rain upon it or unnecessary exposure tn tho weather may be avoided, both nf which materially impair the buls or straw fur milder. I he heads mo -eparnted with n fi'iil, ond the seed extracled by Robert lliticnhousn & Co.'s patent clover ma chine. The. average pmduci in seed, is 4 to 5 bushels the acre ; which, at present prices i-- worth sixty to seventy dollars a tolerable ncrcablc prnfil for a second crop. In regard to Ins clover mnchuic. Mr. B. has cleaned fnttr hundred bit-hels of seed wiih In without a dollar's expense for re pair. It is puttnbie ; and when thcro it once n machine in a neighborhood, pays Mr u. 1 think the larmers wt.l rat-e their own toed, ns is the case in my neighborhood. And if they raise it themselves, they think il costs nothing ; Ihey then sow liberally and get a booniiftill return. The machine costs sixty dollars nnd it would verily seem to be worth that amount annually to tha farmers of the iieiglibothnod, Mr, Brew er's innctiiue wa made by Blnckwcll of Album. Ot leans county. In regard Hie value of clover in keeping up ihe feriiluv of I Ii o (arm. Mr, B. cou-td ers it of the firai cousequence ; fur, say, he, I Hunk 1 can manure my fnrm with clover, cheaper than I cart nut my manure from my own bam yard ; ul'hough I hive ii nil curled nui in Hie spring fur my lined crops, while iinferinented, because I Hnrik it nl more value In hare it rut in Iho soil 'lian in the horn yard. I do not wi-h to Inivi! it under. mod that I mn nn advocatrt of Hie misernblit pniciice of leaving my uinnnrn in my barn ynrd as many of my neighboring larmers do, tn wa-to one half nf us he-i quili'ies, fur I have it thor Highly cleaned every year.

There was but two aces of meadow upon il, nud (It'll was inn wet In plough. Bui this, snys he, did not discourage me. I purchased two nnd n half bushels of clover seed the first spring, winch poiue of my neighbors tlto't was enough in seeil my whole farm ; but I sowed it mi six acres. Such was Mr. Brewer's beginning; and the render is already advised that thi spirited beginning tins been followed up eight years, with increasing ndvaningn Tim wheal crop has nyerngei! from 10 to '.4 bushols per uctr.
