TH2 POTATO ITS 02IG2T AXD USES.
This ra.lna.l3l ft rseulent is ascertained
t?.be a native of South America, having
been found in a wild state both in
IJcunos Ayres and in Chili. Sir. Joseph
Banks considers that the potato -was
...Crst introduced into Europe from the
in the neighborhood of Quito, where
' tcy vrcT.Q- called "papas," to .Spain,
."in the early part of the ICth century.
TVhnr Kmin v?V.Arn tliov wfro cnllpd
'.'battatas," they appear to have found
their "way first to Italy, where they re
ceived the same name with the trufile
'taratoulii.. Hie potato was received
bv Clusms, at Vienna in 1583, from
t're Governor of Moris, in Hainault,
who h'ad nrocured it the rear before
from oris of the attendants of the Pope s
It gate, under the name of "taratoufli,"
a id learned from him that it was in use
Ti.i t ' r ?t j ii
in naiy. m ucrmany it received ice
nimeof "cartofTel," and spread rapidly
in .the 'time of Clausius.
. -It - is supposed that the potato was
first introduced into" England by the
colonists .sent ' put ' by Sir "Walter
Rajiegh", who returned from Virginia in
1)86.- Thomas Herriot, in a report of
'ir e country, describes a plant called
""openank," with "roots as large as a
wilnu-t, and others much larger; they
grow' in. damp soil, many hanging to-
' gather, as if on ropes; they are good
.food either boiled or roasted." Gerarde,
'in his Herbal, published in 1597, gives
a figure of the potato, under the name
of the. "potato of Virginia," whence,
he -says, he received the roots; and this
aj-pclatio'n it appears to have retained,
in order to" distinguish it from the
"dattatas, or sweet potato, till the year
. IT'40 if not longer.
It is said that, the potato was first
'plinted by Sir Walter Raliegh on his
. cs'iatc; -of Younghill, near Cork; and,
says a .writer, "was cherished and cul
tivated for food" in that country be
fore its value was known in England,
tlic:ugli they .were soon carried over
frenr Ireland to Lancaster. Gerard,
. wr. o had this plant in his garden in
-i r t : i a. . c cLTt-ii-i
AOyfj uuutT tue iiauie ui jiauaiaiir-rjiniana"-recommends
the roots to be
cat cir as a delicate dish, not as common
ibocL Parkinson mentions that the
tubers were sometimes roasted and
steeped, in sack and suar, or baked
' with-ftf arrow and snifos. and avpti nrp.

Jrccjame better understood. It was near
the middjc of the 18th 'century, how
ever, before they were generally known
oyer the country. Since that time they 1
Jrave -been most extensively cultivated.
It ia within the recollection of the
writer, when a few rows round the corn
.ficld, or a small patch of a fourth or
Jialf aji acrc of potatos was considcr
'ed quite a large quantity for a farmer
.to ?row ' iwo ' varieties were onlv
C . - - r
known at that time, the "horr" and the
"red?' potato the former a strong, ill
fhv6rctL, c'oarsc-meatcd, soggy con
cetn, only 'fit for the animal whose
name' it bears; the latter was finer and
cloef-rineated, of' good flavor, not
raealy,,but an excellent late potato, and
not very -prolific. It is about sixty
yc;;.rs -since 'the variety called "English
Whites" were first introduced into this
cou ntry. They were of good size,
l M- IV. .jrviwj - - X
lei.ted; form roundish; flesh white,
' fine grained, mealy, farinaceous, and
-of cood. flavor a great improvement
tv n r w i r l fvi' i 'it i ui urr i v 111-
on'thc former kinds. Alter the mtro
.duction'of the "English Whites," the
consumption increased until they have
m j w .
itSm. in table use.
"As -an article of human food, the
. ll .i. 4 J -V
,anl is 'of the greatest importance in
.thb eve of the political economist.
"I'rom no other crop that can be culti-
va!;ed'.will the public derive so much
focid as from this valuable esculent; and
ft? ndmits of demonstration, that an
. aci of potatoes will feed double the
." the 'number of people that can be fed
from an acre of wheat. Potatoes are
also a nourishing, healthy food, relish
ed'bv almost every palate; and it is
Believed there is hardly a dinner served
.up in any part. of this country without
' th'.'tn. In Ireland particular!, we all
krow they constitute the principal
ar acle of food for the poor. When
thi potato crop fails there, a famine
. x.innou lounu meaiy potatoes to con-
i n" r j 1 j i. a
;ta n twenty-four per cent, of their
we ight of . nutritive matter. In making
, a proper estimate of the value of any
' article of food, it is necessary that we
should not give too much importance
tCt a single' element which it may con
tain. Starch, as is well known
- abounds in the potato, and its nutrient
value is supposed by. many to depend
. 'nrincipally. on its presence. This
opinion, however, is not well sustained
' by experience, inasmuch asits sustain-
in r powers are greater than is due to
. ' this clement. "Albumen' says Prof.
Emmons, and casein also exist in this
vegetable, as well as in organic matter;
to which, along with starch, its value
mist depend. Hence, in the analysis
determine its value as food,' it is quite
essential that its aibamen and casein
ct:.. should be determined, as well as
it-- starch and surrar. This will appear
in a. clear light when it is known
that albumen ,is one of the con
st tuants of blood, and one of the mate
rials which supply . the wastes of the
sj;cm of animals. Albumen and
csscla abound in those fluids and solids
which " appear to be designed to build
up the original structures. ; Milk, . the
white of err:rs, and other albuminous
mattery .are furnished to the young of
11 1 1 j 1 l. I ir
an animais, ana xnougu iu cuuiu in
stances they appear to be of animal
origin, yet when traced back to: their
sources, they are found to be derived
from the vegetable kingdom."
"In addition, then, to starch, the
potato contains several other important
materials, which are capable of supply
ing the wastes which a living being is
continually undergoing. .
"It is not the purpose, of this brief
essay to show that different varieties
differ in composition, and that some
are better calculated to perform the
part of a nutriment than others, but
rather to exhibit the general compo
sition of this vegetable. It is,; how
ever, undoubtedly true that the nutrient
properties of some varieties are superior
to others, and it is also probably true
that those which are inferior, in their
amount of starch may be the best for
supplying the wastes of the body." .
The following organic analyses of
the Mercer potato by Mr. L. Salisbury,
shows that it is composed of the fol
lowing elements: ' ;

The ;Sotcli Gray," it must be ob
served, is an excellent potato, being
heavy, firm, and not much inclined 'to
decav. It will be observed also, that
it contains less water than the Mercer,
and that it is rich in the valuable or
The quantity of farina which pota
tos produce varies not only according
to the species, but . according to the
period when the extract takes place.
The variations produced ; by this last
cause are nearly .as " follows : -Two
hundred and forty pounds of potatos
produce of farina, or potato flour, in
23 to 25'pounis.
32 to 3S , -32
to 40 "
33 to 45
.S3 to 45
20 to 23
The extraction of the farina should
be discontinued at the period when the
potatos bejrin to crow, the farma
being destroyed by germination. Red
potatos produce a smaller quantity
of farina. Those which are blue on
he outside give little, but it is of good
quality; the white, which is often tinged
with red in the interior, is the least
calculated for this extraction. The
best of all is that which has. a yellow
mt, as its farina is abundant and of
very good quality. ., , . , f l.
Uses. The ordinary economical ap
plications or uses of the potato, next
o those of the culinary; and baking
arts, are in starch making and the dis
tillery. Tne manufacture of potato
flour is carried on to a considerable
extent in France, and is sold at a pric?
considerably higher than that of wheat
for the use of confectioners and ior
bakers who prepare tho finer sorts of
bread. Tapioca is also manufactured
from potatoes. Wine, of .a good qual
ity, may be made from frosted pota
toes. .Votash may be extracted from
potato leaves and stalks." Among ex
traordinary applications of tho potato,
may be n.entioned cleaning woolens
and making wine and alcohol. The
water decanted from the starch power
is excellent for cleaning silks, without
the smallest injury to the color.

EZAN3 Ef SAND.
Much of the soil in this western
country is unsuitcd for raising beans,
on account of its great richness. The
beans run too much to vine. Hence
the best beans are raised on those
portions which have a thin surface soil,
(as on the elevations,) as the plow here
turns up a portion oi the subsoil, which
generally consists of a mixture of clay,
sand, gravel, &c. V nenever this can
be mixed with the surface soil, not only
the best beans, but the best corn, wheat.
&c, (though not the largest growth,)
are raised. Un account of the gre
depth, and richness of the soil of tins
country, generally, it can never be
come exhausted. It is only necessary
occasionally to increase the depth of
the tillage, which may be done m dif
ferent places to the depth of two - or
three to twenty feet or more.
But I have strayed from my subject.
Last year I planted sev eraH hills o
beans in the edge cf a pile of sand
that had been left after building." I
dug through the sand, placed the beans
on the ground beneath, and covered
them with the sand. They grew and
produced. The pods were the longest
and largest of any of the kind thaj I
raised last year. . This year I a.m doing
the same thin on a larger scale, and
with a fair prospect of success.

P ATENT GRAIN SEPARATOH
ri inE SUBS CRIBER is now prepared to f ar
X nish Farmers and others with his
7 '-GRAIN SEPARATOR," : .
for the present S'jason. It is unnecessary to speak
particularlyof the xnerit3 of these Machines, as they
are too well known throughout the country to need
extolling ; but the fact that they bave heretofore and
are continuing to receive the premiums at the State
and County Faira where they have been exhibited is
sudden t to induce all those in want of such a ila
chine, to" purchase one of these. . .
At a practical test of this Separator in competition
with the best of those made in Ecdand, in 1853, it
received the highest commendations of the press, and
Df the leading crisrulturalisrs of that country.
I have a large number of them" on hand, ready for
the eomin'r crop, made of tho best material, and war
ranted to do eood work.
1 have made many valuable improvements in these
machines within thelastycax,andliave no hesitation
in warranting them superior to any in use. .
I am also preparing a large nmnber of Crawford's
, Improved, Clover llulleru, j i
patented in 1854; which are greatly superior to hU
patent of . 184, being in itself foe,der, and greatly
ahead of it in Other respects.' Ihey will bo mann
factured . under the-, immediate supervision ; of the
patentee, who hug permanently located m this place,

TIIE continued liberal patronage of the citizens of
St. Joseph, North Vestern Missouri, Kansas, Ne
braska and Western Iowa, or all of which we feci
thankful, has induced us to incrcaso-our facilities for
doing business. Having built last spring, a very
large Manufactory Establishment on Francis street,
and having employed somo of the very best workmen
in the Eastern cities, we are now determined not ' to
be out done by any other FrsRure Establishment in
the .Missouri Valley, in quantity, quality, durability,
styles and prices.- Our stock consists in part of Rose
wood, .Walnut and Mahbgony Bureaus, marble and
solid tops of every style; extension, centre, card, din-
ana siao table; iJooK cases, Yash stands. Work
tables and Wradrobea,. Sofas, :di vans, ottomans nnd

say then to all who niay want good Furniture, either
for hotels, partors or bed rooms, give us acall and ex
amine oux work and prices,; and we think you will
leave your money hero in place of sending ito St

price you can get a good on here at.
J Our motto is the cash system, which will enable us
to sell atjmallcr profits than ours or any other estab
