From the New York Farmer.
MANURE IS WEALTH.
In our intercourse with some of the farm
ers residing within forty or fifty miles from
New York, on Long Island, we have been
surprised at the instances related to us of
the profitahless of farming. Sortie farmers,
known to have labored and toiled hard,
have continued yearly to fall in arrears un
til they have commenced buying manure.
Fifty-six cents are given per carman's load
at the landing, for the apparently worth
less dirt swept from the street. The very
farmers who could ndt obtain a living by
using only manure ftiade on their farms
from incumbrances, hut purchase others
in addition, are now, from the yearly prof
its of their farm, putting money out at in
terest. Ifthen it is found so profitable to
buy manure, and be at the various expen
ses attending to carting, how very impor
tant is it to give spi cial attention to increas
ing the quantity and improving the quality
of that made on th& farm. There is no
question but that almost every farmer can
double the quantity of his domestic or yard
manure, without scarcely and additional
expense. It is thought too, that at least fif
ty per cent. of the nutritive properties of
yard manure are lost by drenching of rains,
excessive fomentations, ami injurious ap
plication to soil. The more we consider
this subject the greater docs it become in
importance, and justly regarded as the pri
mary object in farming.
AGE OF TREES.
An elm is full-grown in one hundred and
fifty years, and it lives five or six hundred.
Ash is full-grown at one hundred.
Oak, at two hundred.
From a late English Paper.
Among the premiums to be given by the
Highland Agricultural Society of Scotland
at their meeting in the present year, is one
of 500 sovereigns‘- for the first successful
application of the steam power to the culti
vation of the soil.” The merits of the in
vention with reference to the conditions e
numerated, will he judged of by a commit
tee of the society, especially appointed, and
the inventor to be required to exhibit the
machinery and modes of applying it in
Scotland. Looking to the greatly extend
ed application, which has recently been
made of steam as a motive power, and see
ing that the difficulties which are opposed to
the application to the purposes of the farm
have been partially overcome by the effect
of individuals, it has appeared to the socie
ty that without exciting expectations which
may not be realized, a strong ground exists
for having this possible application ofstcam
power made the subject of ample, fair and
satisfactory experiment. A stepm engine
has recently been invented in France, w ith
which, it is said, four miles of ground can
in a single hour be excavated with an en
gine of only eight horse power, to the depth
ofa foot and the breadth of two feet. The
earth as it is turned up, is thrown into a
sort ofsail, which hurls it to a distance of
60 feet. A steam plough has been lately
shipped otffrom Glasgow to British Guiana,
intended for the cultivation of sugar in that
Colony—as a great necessity has arisen for
the employment of some other power besides
manual labor, in working the sugar es
tates. The machinery consists of two iron
boats, one containing a small high pressure
steam engine with a drum, round which the
endless chain or rope is coiled, and the
other a reversing pullv, by means of which
the chain or rope is extended, and al :
lowed to work which ever way is required,
the ploughs are attached to this chain, and
made to work backwards and forwards with
great rapidity and accuracy. The exper
iments which have been made were highly
. From the South Carolina Planter.
A GOOD WAY TO KEEP SWEET
POTATOES IN WARM WEATHER.
I now have sweet potatoes (yams,) of last
year’s growth, on my table every day, al
though the new crop has been fit to use
here for more than a month. This is the
second year of my success in keeping them
through the summer, after a great many
previous experiments and failures, and oth
ers may like to know and try the plan for
themselves. Here it is :
1. I made a plentiful crop.
2. My potatoes were dug and put up in
mild, open weather, as soon as the vines
were singed by frost.
3. The eating potatoes were carefully
picked oveiyUnd all that were cut or bruis
ed, were put by themselves for early use.
4. They w ire then put in heaps of 80 or
100 bushels each, on ground a little slo
ping. The heaps were covered first with
a layer of dry corn stalks, and these with
agood coat of earth, taken from the margin
of the heaps. By this means the earth on
which the heaps rested, was left 10 or 12
inches higher than that adjoining, besides
cutting trenches to carry off the rain wa
ter. There were no air-holes or vents left
at the top. The earth used in covering is
f a sandy loam. These potato banks were
i protected from rain by .slight clap-board
5. In the spring; at the time of planting
slips, my eating potatoes were also taken
out ofthe banks. Tire decay up to that
time was about 15 per cent. The potatoes
were generally sprouted- Those that were
entirely sound Were selected, the sprouts
carefully removed, the potatoes wiped dry,
but not exposed to the sun, ami removed to
a log house, on a dry plank floor, where
they remained for use, withoul any fur
ther attention. The loss front-decay since
they were put in the house, has been equal
to a!>out ten per cent more. I think the
loss would have been less, if there had been
more room to spread out the potatoes. A
gin-house would be a fine place to keep
them in during the warm weather. For I
have found that Irish potatoes can be kept
there longer and better than in any other
place I have tried.
As to the best method of keeping sweet
potatoes in winter, the following story may
direct your attention to a quarter, from
which you may obtain some useful infor
In the Fall of 1833,1 called at the house
ofJ.G. near the Watcree canal. He had
just put up his potato crop —chiefly in a
house of the following construction. It
had a double log wall, and the space be
tween the walls [ 15 or 18 inches,] was fill
ed with earth. The top or loft was floor
ed with stout puncheons, and these covered
over with clay 10 or 12 inches thick—a
bovc which there was a common board roof.
The ground floor was sunk about two feet
below the surface of the earth. The area
of the house was about 8 (cct wide, 8 feet,
high, and 10 leet long, which he computed
to hold 800 bushels. It was entirely tilled
What struck tnc most, was, to see the
door (the only opening to the house,) clo
sed up, and all the scams in the shutter and
facings, carefully chinked up with cotton
and tar—if I remember right, Mr. G. gave
the following explanation. For two or
three years, on first housing'his potatoes,
he was careful to have the door kept open
until they had gone through a sweat—yet
found that lie often lost a third by dry rot.
At length ho was told that the air ought to
be carefully kept out until the sweat was
over. The truth of this was strongly con
firmed to his mind, by the recollection that
in using his potatoes he found that the far
ther they lay from the door the sounder they
had kept, lie id led that he had preserv
ed two crops on the new plan, with entire
success—and that after the sweating stage
was past, the door was often left open all
day, in cold weather, without any sensible
injury to the potatoes.
Would it not confer a public benefit, for
you to learn if this plan continues success
ful, and give your readers the information?
From the Baltimore American.
SOAKING CORN FOR HORSES.
A gentleman who resides in Baltimore
county, and who is one of the most success
ful farmers in our vicinity, informed us a
few days since, that hc'saved at least one
third of his com by the manner in which
he fed it out to his horses : He has two
hogsheads placed in his cellar, where they
are secure from freezing. These he first
fills with corn in the ear, then pours in a
sufficient quantity of water to cover the
corn. After the ea/s have been thorough
ly soaked he commences feeding, gives to
his horses two thirds of the usual quantity
allowed. As one of these hogsheads be
comes empty, he refills it; and by the time
the other is empty the one last filled is suf
ficiently soaked for use. In this way the
cobs become so softened that the horses con
sume the whole of them, and they are thus
made to add fully one third more to his
stock of food. He assures Us that the hor
ses eat the cobs with avidity, keep in good
order, and are just as competent to perform
plantation labor as when they consumed
the grain alone. The success of our in
formant should stimulate his agricultural
brethren to follow his example, as the labor
of preparation is nothing, compared with
the great saving, effected.
TAMED BEES, WASPS, AND OTHER
Education does much among animals :
they are singularly susceptible, especially
when certain methods, which it would he
interesting to know, are used. One Wild
ham, an Englishman, had a peculiar talent
for educating bees, wasps, and even several
other flies. On the 4th of June, 1774, in
the presence of the Stadtholder and his con
sort, he made several experiments on the
education and economy of bees. He dis
played a comb full of these insects ; and,
in the space of two minutes, he caused them
to leave the comb, and settle upon the hat
of one ofthe spectators. Thence, he caused
them to alight upon his naked arm, and
form him a rnuff. Next, he caused them
to settle upon his head and face, on which
they made a kind of mask. He afterwards
Caused them to march upon a table, accor
ding to his orders. That which was most
extraordinary, in the conduct and talents
of this singular man, was that he cCuld
make the same experiments with whatever
swarm was offered to him, and even wasps
and other flies ; and that he could tame the
most mischievous in ihe space of five min
utes, without danger of being stung.
DON’T KILL YOUR BEES.
A writer in the Genessee Farmer says
that hv using the smoke ofthe fungus max
iuius, or puffball, the bee owners will a
dopt a mode of treatment much more hu
mane and profitable than that which gener
ally prevails. It has a stupifying effect
on the bees, rendering them as harmless as
brimstone does, without the deadly effects
of the latter. It is likewise stated that by
means of the stupifying effect ofthe smoke,
weak swarms, which would not live through
the winter, may be united to strong ones,
and that two swarms thus united will not
consume more honey in a winter than 1 Crib
would in its natural state. Farmers, give
this a trial.
The following is given in the. Plattville
(Wisconsin) Badger, as a recipe for taking
the fever and ague. We fully assent to the
conclusion in the last sentence :
“ But oil a pair of cotton or linen panta
loons, (yellow if possible, a long-tailed, pale
blue, old jean coat, a high crowned, peaked
topped, straw or chip hat, and a low pair of
shoes without socks ; then seat yourself on
a high stump, next morning after the first
frost and rest your head on your hand, and
your elbow on your knee, and look over the
fence wishfully into a cucumber patch ;
if you can stand this operation for two hours
without your teeth chattering, you are proof
against the ague ; if the experiment fail,
you may attribute the failure to the healthi
ness ofthe climate, and not the inefficiency
To lie Remembered !
“ llcsolved, by the Senate and House oj

That, in the lute campaign ugainst. the Indians
upon the Wabusli, Governor William Henry
Harrison has hehuved like a hero, a patriot,
and a general; and tlint, li.r Ins coni, delibe

of Tippecanoe, he well deserves the warmest
thanks of his country and his nation.”
Legislature of Kentucky, Jan. 7, 1812.
“ General Harrison has done more for his
country, with less compensation for it, than
any man living.” President Madison.
“ I profess to he somewhat acquainted with
the history of G-neral Harrison’s political,
military, and private life. 1 am his neighbor,
and live iri his county. As to his private life,
l know of no stain that for a moment, sullies

Colonel Richard M Johnson, now Vice Pre
sident. c.f the United Suiies, said, in Congress:
•• Who is General Harrison ! The son of one
of the signers of ihe Declaration of Indepen
dence, who spent the greater part of his large
fortune in redeeming the pledge he then gave,
of Ins ‘ fort min, life, and sacred honor,’ to se
cure tiie liberties of Iris country.
“ Os Ihe career of General Harrison, ! need
not speak ; the History of the West is his his
tory. For forty years lie has been identified
with its interests, its perils, and its hopes.
Universally beloved in the walks of pence,
and distinguished by Ins ability in the coun
cils of his country, he has been yet more
illustriously distinguished m the field. Dur
ing the late war, lie was longer in actual
service than any other General Officer; he
was, perhaps, oftener in action than any one
of them, unu never sustained a defeat.”
Colonel R. M. Johnson to General Harrison,
July 4, 1813, says :
We did not want, to serve under cowards
or traitors ; but. under one [Harrison] who had
proved hnnseiflo be wise, prudent, anu brave.”
On llic night before the final question on the
Missouri restr.etiou was taken, General Har
rison was warned by one of his associates, that,
if he voted against the restriction, he would
ruin his pupularny at the North ; lie fearlessly
•• I have often risked my life in defence of
my country —1 will now risk my political po
pularity in uetcnce of the mi on.”
General Win. 11. Harrison says:
In all ages, and in all countries, it lias
been observed, that the cultivators of the soil
are those who are the least willing to part
with tlieir rights, and submit them to the will
of a muster.”
On the subject ot selling white men for
debt, General Harrison says, in a letter to Mr.
“ So tar from being willing to sell men for
debts, which they are unable to discharge, 1
am, and ever have been, opposed to all impri
sonment for debt.”
In a letter, on the same subject, to the Editor
ot the Cincinnati Advertiser, he says:
“ Far from advocating the abominable prin
ciples attributed to me by your correspondent,
I think that imprisonment for debt, under any
circumstance but those where fraud is alleged,
is at wai with the best principles of our Con
stitution, and ought to be abolished.”
In a letter to the Hon. Sherrod Williams,
dated “ North Bend, May 1, 1836,” General
“ I have before me a newspaper, in which I

The following paragraph, from a memoir of
General Harrison, by J. K. Jackson, Esq., bears
valuable testimony to his religious character :
“An incident which occurred at Philadelphia,
will serve to illustrate his character. On the
evening preceding a Sabbath he was to spend in
that city, two gentlemen waited on him, and
stated, that there were two sects there, more nu
merous than others ; and, therefore, it would be
good policy in him to attend one of these sects in
the morning and the other in the afternoon.
‘ Gentlemen,’ he replied, ‘ I thank you sincerely
for your kindness, but I have already promised
to attend divine service to-morrow ; and when I
go to church, I go to worship God, and not to
