The chcry tree is more impatient
nf nuhanhes than most other kinds.
Some- have been destroyed by, ashes
thrown round the stem. Under two
trees, the pigs were fed with corn, and
the cobs scattered over . the ground :
both, perished. . In a slight depression
ucar another, the water collected in
rainy weather, and the geese dabbled
- iii it: the tree died the same summer.
Lime whitewash has also been charged
with injuring the cherry tree; and if it
be used at all, the experiment should
be cautiously conducted.

be adapted to a greater variety of soils
than the heart cherry .tree; and may. be

"'.The apricot was 'formerly ranked
'.with the plum, but it differs enough to
stand separate. Like the plum how-
ever, it has a smooth stone, and turns
' sour with heat; though in flavor it re
sembles the peach more than any of
our fruits." It resembles it also in the
excitaDiiiiy oi me iruii duus m winter.
Its. earlier bloom exposes it rather more
. to severe weather in the spring, but
. generally it succeeds wherever ' the
peach can be successfully cultivated.
In this climate, the tree is-perfectly

causes occasionally operate to produce
similar cilccts, viz: insects, and a" start
.ing of-tho bark in winter. .
The late Professor Peck, on examin
'ing the 'branch oT a pear tree, which
;had died with fire blight, said the
damage was caused by an insect,
j(Scolytus pyri,) and that to cut off j the
limbs a foofor morc'below the. dead
part, and cmmcdiaiebj burn wm, would
be the proper remedy'. Wc .have
faithfully followed this advice; and
" though the fire blight has been sc'vcral
times m tne iruit garaen, its ravages
Jiave "ahvays been arrested at once, 'so
that wc have not lost .a tree from this
cause in twenty years. " "VYc have be
licved that the new colonies went with
us .when wc carried off and destroyed
the branches. ; ".'- "
The starting of the bark, in winter,
appears to be caused by an 'untimely
flowing of the sap, followed by intense
cold, . which expands into ice, and
separates the bark, from the. wood. Vvre
have oDserved 'such effects once or
twice, succeeded on some o"f the smaller
branches, by a blighting of the .leaves,
. but we believe it seldom occurs" in this
district. . ' ' '
The plum tree is som'e times, though
.rarely, attacked by the peach worm in
"Western New- York. .Its most for
midable enemy however, is the insect
that causes the "llacJ: gum?' similar in
its effects to the' insect that destroys
the morello, if they .arc not identical.
Be this as it may, it is rapidly increas-
, ing; and unless our farmers "shall turn
over a new leaf," the plum will soon ber
come very rare among us. In every
direction that wc travel, .branches are
covered with these excrescences;, and
. if there is one man withm fifty miles
of us who has done his duty, we should
be pleased to hear it.'
: 16 guard against this insect, the
; trees should be well pruned, though
not enough to check their vigor, so that
the buncies maybe readily discovered.
Unless this precaution be taken, it
would be very difficult to find all of
them, without spending more time than
people in general have to spare. Let
there be no delay in cutting off and
burning them when they are found.
It appears that the eggs of this in-
sect arc deposited in a slit of the bark
some time during the summer; and
where they generally pass the winter
without hatching, boon after vegeta
tion commences in the spring, a kind
ot tungous wood is formed, swelling
out cn one side of the branch, and
among this the young progeny find
nourishment and shelter. This fungous
wed however, appears not to be
ccc-:!:ncd by. the worm, for it often
occurs where there are none, but by
some,; irritating secretion from the
"parent. , j . . - .
.' - After the late severe drought, when
' the trees took a second growth, wc found
several new excrescences so late in the
. season, that probably the worms would
have perished with cold if wc had not
arrested their career. Docs the start
ing of the fungous wood cause the eggs
'Wc have spoken of insects that
depredate on the trees : we now turn
ctD such as injure the fruit by punctur
ing and then depositing a nit, so that
it becomes wormyf and drops prema
turely from the tree.
Every person "cultivates the plum

quainted with the eurculio, both by
sishtand character, mere ougnu io
sood drawing of this insect, but
we have seen none; and at this season
of the year, wc cannot have one pre
pared. It is however, a dark -brown
bug, about "a quarter , of an isich long,
and of singular form, having a slender
neck and head. "When it d;:cps from
the. tree, it lies still, pretending to be
dead; or if a dried blossom or leaf be
near, where it can hide, it moves
cautiously under, fearing to be seen in
motion. When crushed between, the
thumb and finger, it feels like Indian
meal, and like no other insect that wc
It i3 timid: and when hogs; sheep
or cattle pairs frequently under, the
trees, it is scarcer than in more retired
places. . Trees that stand near a door
where there is much passing, are often
entirely exempt from its visits: and the
same result occurs where they stand
in. a lane or barnyard... The late Thos.
Forrest of Germantown", near rhila
. -a a
delphia, tied one end oi a cord to a
plum tree, and the other end to his
pump-handle, so that it shook the tree
whenever they drew water. . It saved
lms insect on one point is very
sacious. It is unwilling to have its
progeny drop on the, pavement, or into
water. The same shrewd horticulturist
set his nectarine trees leaning over the
fish-pond, and not a eurculio disturbed
them. In regard to pavements, we
have had several accounts of their
efficacy. A friend . of ours had' his
plums to ripen perfectly over a pave
ment, while others, without this protec
tion, though otherwise favorably situ-
a ted,-were entirely destroyed.
Only a few trees, however, can be
guarded in this way. . For' the fruit
garden, wc want something more com
prehensive, and have already referred
to tht) services of swine and poultry.
They devour much of tha wormy fruit,
and the young curculios along with it;
but some of the" insects .probably es
cape, besides all such as leave the fruit
before, it falls.. How long they live,
is not known; but if wc .may iudgc
from their difference of size,, it maybe
many years; and to tliis company, the
new brood is annually added. Unless
the swine and poultry, therefore, can
induce them to migrate, the .fruit must
suffer greatly from their ravages, and
ch has been our experience.'
Finding many of our trees nearly
unproductive we determined in the
early part of last summer, to call these
depredators to account. Accordingly,
wc followed the same plan that we
recommended" some years ago in the
Ncio York Farmer: spread -sheet,
under the trees, and jarred the branches
violently. The little nraraiiders taken
by surprise, "fell down by 'dozens; and
the contrast .ot colors, enabled us to
detect them at a glance. ; "Wc chose
the cool' of the moruing for this pur
pose, when they were slightly benumb
ed; and preserved till wc had destroy
ed nearly seventeen hundred; In con
sequence, all the trees that.wc visited,
bore fruit in abundance; and to prove
that our labor was rewarded, a tree that
wa3 overlooked bore three apricots
while another of less. size bore half a
bushcT.. ' "
During its migrations, the eurculio
doubtless uses its wings; and near its
native spot it may occasionally fly into
the tree; but from several circumstances
wc conclude that' it generally ascends
by crawling.' With this belief, circular
tin troughs have been fastened round
the trees;' and. being filled, and kept
filled, With water, have been found use
ful for this insect' is no navigator.
These appendages, however, should be
applied very early in the spring, before
it gets up the trees. ' Afterward they
arc not likely to be of. any benefit
"When the earlier accounts of the
eurculio were published, it wa3 believed
to be identical with the worms that in
fest the apple, pear, and quince; but
NoycsJDarling of New Haven, more
than ten years ' ago, discovered that
they were very, distinct: and wc re-,
peatcd his experiment with the same
result. It is a dark-gray miller that
attacks the apple, and the pear, and
probably the quince. " It was also
thought that the eurculio continued its
ravages until- autumn; but the same
sagacious horticulturalist found that its
work was .finished before, midsummer.
The mark which it leaves on the
fruit that it punctures, is in form of a
crescnt; and we have never seen that
mark except on stone fruit.
The down of the peach generally
protects it against the eurculio, but the
nectarine, which is only a smooth' skin
variety of peculiar flavor, often suffers
even more than the plum or the ap
The peach worm (JEgcria exitiosa)
attacks the tree at the root, where the
bark is soft from the moisture of the
ground, or the shading of grass; but it
avoids the hard, scaly part, so that old
trees arc often undisturbed for years.
On the reverse, young trees arc much
injured by it, and sometimes destroy
ed, especially wncrc two or more are
at work at the same time. If the
encircle the tree, there is no hope of
recovery, uui tins is rarely accom
plished by one worm.

once recommend them to all Farmers. It is carried

The method by which the seed is planted with this
Planter i3 new, and, it is believed, possesses advan
tages over every other, not only in facility of use, but
in hastening germination. The seed is forced, by
pressure, obliquely from the surface of the ground
to th required depth, thus insuring the immediate
absorbtion of moisture, by bringing it into perfect
and Lard contact with the soil, under and around it,
while the earth falling loosely over, cannot obstrnct
the coming up and growth of the blade.
The economy cf using this Planter, that will more
than pay for itself if only wanted to plant in a com
