HsJ.DICjilnsoii's Peim-Tan Address,
CCiSO 1KD SOOT MAT CO ELSEWHERE.
Sir. President I desire to say but few
words ca foreign or manufactured man
ures, as the class cf men I am addressing
jis not one likely to be caught oa a hook
tailed with guano at sixty dollars per ton,
bowerer much it may do for some south
ern lands or worn-out Lon-Island soils.
There, I fncy, it only enriches the land,
as a neighbor of mine gets rich two or
three times , a yeap-th'? whole expense
of Lis o atlay in his case not exceeding- a
peck of rye, and that not well distilled.
And because some farmer has accomplish
ed much ia Ireland frosi soot, there is
good commoa sense here enough to know
that the soot made from burning bogs is
very unlike ours, and that there is suffi
cient material for renovating the soil
Yates and the surrounding counties, ca
our own farms, except plaster, the expense
of which is so trifling we can use it freely.
BIS TirWS 05 TrR5IPS.
The turnip crop, either the Norfolk,
Swede, or ruta tagas, are exhausting
crops in this country. Yet they furnish
a large amount cf food, and if fed to cat
tle cr sheep on the same land, will enrich
instead of impoverishing it; but take them
erf f cr several years' in succession, and
the soil will be very much reduced. En
flihmen sav thev draw much of their
f . i t. -
ncHjriihment from the atmosrhere. It is
not so ia this region, many of the scien
tific farmers of the day to the contrary
notwithstanding-. England has. a soft
moist atmosphere, ivhile oars at the sea
ron they need care z.nd nourishment, is
hot and dry. There is, indeed, no more
mistaken notion prevailing- than that tur
nips do lest in wet weather. They re
quire moisture but not wet ; they hare a
long tap-root, and no plant cultivated is
more easily drowned or injured by excess
AGKICCLTCRiL PAPEES A2CD 3JACHISIJ1T.
The machinery on exhibition is exceed
ingly good, and I hardly know from
which the agriculturist has profited most
for the last eiht or ten years, the agri
cultural journals cf die day, or the labor
saving machinery that has been invented
and put in operat:cn. Many, farmers
fancy that if they Lave a mowing machine
and a reaper, it is all that is necessary ;
but let me say here that these implements
are only so many more reasons for in
creasing the care and taxing the ingenui
ty of the husbandman, for they neither
run themselves, nor will they permit the
unthoughtf ul or . the wayfaring man to
profit much by their use.
CARE iXD ECOSOMT ESSENTIAL-
There has never been a time when it
was more important that the husbandman
should do his work well, and look c!osely
to his seed of every descripticn, than the
present, since the time cf the b?ack death.
The seasons have been so deranged from
what they formerly were, from warm to
cold, and from wet to dry, that more care
and protection seem to be every where
required. On your soil where wheat un
til the. last few years grew luxuriantly,
and the failure of a crop was almost un
known, you could afford to sow lime
broadcast at the rate of fifty or a- hundred
bushels to the acre. Ia the present un
certainty of the crop you cannot afford so
p of use an application, however lime is
indispensable in the growth of wheat.
Most cf your ether crops are not benefit
ed by its use, as is the case in portions
of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I ask
you to bear with me while I tell you of s.
much cheaper and equally beneficial mode
of applying it: a half pint of tar is suffi
cient to put a coat all over every kernel
of a bushel, sufacient to fasten a bushel
cf lime to that quantity of wheat, which
would be as beneficial zs fifty or aa hun
dred sowed broadcast, as the one bushel
would be brought into immediate contact
with the wheat. He who will take the
trouble to test my pracrice for three years,
by civing both a fair trial, will follow
my advice thereafter, I wiil give all the
particulars to prepare the seed for sowing
as there is no seed that a farmer can af
ford to sow cr plant without first tarring
and then applying the very thing cr things
his soil lacks. I wo-uld just as soon think
farming without tajr, lime and plaster,
as I would of keeping house without arni
ca, camphor and stickicg-salve.
THI MODE Or lr?LTISC Til, LIME, &.C.
It is very simple, yet there is a 'know
how' to everything. I will tell you how
3oa can put a coat of tar over all kinds of
seed as evenly as a painter could put a
coat of paint over a board with his brush.
An iron kettle is the best to mix the tar and
wa:er. Have sufneient boiling water to cut
the tar; mix it with hoc water; then pour
in sufneient cold to make it near blood
neat. Have sufneient water to stir what
ever grain you put in, that the water and
tar may come into contact with every part
and particle ; it will then be coated evenly
and is ready to be taken out. Shovel it
into a basket for economy the basket
may be pla ced ever a tight barrel to catch
iie water ; as soon as it is done draining
throw into a tight box, where yon can mix
and put on whatever, your soil lacks. If
wheat or barley, yon need not fear to ap
ply lime and salt. If oats, com cr buck
wheat, plaster , and salt. And on the
soils of Y'atea county it would be benefi
cial to all of the above-named grains, to
sleep in strong brine twernight. Every
species cf grass seed I sow with a heavy
coat, and fai-tea as much plaster as paisi-
lie, which draws moisture in a dry season
and prevents rotting in an excessively wet
cne, and I never fail to hare my rrass I
seed take welL Ana to me wneaMarm
ers let m say that the importance this
process for their clover is two-fold; it
not only dispenses with the necessity cf
sowing plaster on the wneat to enke the
clover catch, but the quantity that is fas
tened to the clover does not come into con
tact with the wheat sufficiently to give it
the rapid growth rendering it liable to
HJSTS OX SAtTHrG STOCX.
Mr. President, believing that I can use
Professor Backley ta advantage for a few
moments, I will again call your attention
to what he says: "Bat when the Hen.
Senator says that the grass growing next
the ocean contains salt, and that that
growing in western New York does not,
and farther that the chemist canuot detect
salt in the former, but that his ox can.
and hence his ox knows more about the
composition of the grass than the chemist
he talks about things beyond his ken. We
know the chemist can detect the salt."
The argus-eyed Professor knows the che
mist could detect the salt in the grass. I
gave him a fair trial and he failed. What
I said then I will rep-eat, as L regarded
it important information to farmers, and
even Mr. Buckley might profit by it. (was
it not too simple and plain for a ..Profes
sor's understanding) if he has oxen, cat
tle and sheep to look after, and profit by
their being correctly salted.
The Philadelphia meadows axe much
unlike the pasture land of England and
Ireland, or other pasture lands lying with
in the influence of salt waier, for on lhein
the grass on which the cattle feed, is al
ready so seasoned with salt that they will
not eat it in other forms. The meadows
of which I speak, are those which have
been made by dykeing, and the salt wa
ter comes sutnciently near the surface for
the grass to partake cf it; for on pasture
equally near the Delaware, upon the up
lands, the cattle anl sheep will eat salt.
I regard those meadows as the best fat
tening land ia the world. I have seen a
bullock that was fattened there without
grain that had two hundred and fifty
pounds of gut fat.
, I said that I pastured my cattle many
years since on the Philadelphia meadows,
and after they had been there one week,
they would not touch salt. The pasture
seemed to be seasoned just to their taste,
while in Yates county, or on my pasture,
they ould eat a handful in each week
more in wet than in dry weather. Most
of the grasses in loth places being cf the
same kind, and to all appearances preci
sely identical, I cut and cured on the Phi
ladelphia meadows as much as I could
bring home in my valise, and then cut and
cured the same kinds at home, labeling
them so that each might be distinguished.
I then carried both to a celebrated pro
fessor of chemistry, and told him there
was as much difference ia the grass as
there would be if one had grown on hard
water and the other on soft water land,
but did not tell him that such was the
fact; that I wanted a thorough analysis
in order to determine which contained
the best fattening qualities. After a fair
trial, he told me he could find no differ
ence; I then told him what the difference
was, and I remarked neither he nor my
self knew as much about grass as my ox;
and from that -time to this I have been
trying to learn from my cattle their
wants, by consulting their tastes as to
what they would eat or drink, and I do
not hesitaie to say here ia the presence
of practical farmers, that I have not only
learned from my ox, but from sheep, more
as to their wants and how to treat them,
than from all the chemists, professors of
agricultural colleges, royal or state nurse
ries,and government trial fields, oa earth.
And I am quite anxious to impart a few
of the most important of the truths deri
ved from the observation cf the instincts
of animals. These instincts are much
stronger with wild than domesticated ani
mals, which latter are looked after by
man, while the former select their food
with much more care. Thirty-five years
since, Red Jacket, the child of nature,
told me how to salt deer, or in other
words, how to make a deer-lick, by bor
ing holes in a log and patting salt in them;
and he Temarked that they were much
founder of fish brine, and would leave
their licks made of salt, and feed wholly
on those made cf fish brine. I tested this
thoroughly and found it to be true.
SAI.TI5G SHEEP WITH FIJ.H BRUTE.
I then tested it thoroughly with sheep
for many years, and say to you that a
flock of fite Saxony ewes in a dry season,
will make their lambs at least four
pounds heavier each, by having fish brine
than common salt, while the common ewe
will not increase the weight cf her lamb
an ounce; nor do I believe the Bakewell,
Southdown or Leicestershire would in
crease them. The reason is, the fine Sa
xony sheep, Ike the goat, gives very rich
milk, but a small quantity of it not suf
ficient for the rrowth of her Jamb. Lak
in-y the fish brine best, she eats more
salt than she otherwise would her appe
tite for water is increased, and the more
she dnnk3 the greater xhi quantity of
milk she yields, and this gives greater
growth to her lamb, n mist large ccarse
wooled ewes' milk not being so rich, but
in larger quantity, in many cases it would
be injurious to pursue the course in ques
; tion. The cow can by the same process
be Erode is increase her milk and not her
butter. Too much salt 13 injurious in
fattening, but it should be regularly fed,
and more ia warm thaa ia ciid weather.

Marriage for SiioTr.
To the question often asked of young
men as to why they do not marry, we
sometimes hear the reply, 'I am not able
to support a wife.' In one case ia three
perhaps, this may be so ; but a3 a general
thing, the true reply would be, I am not
able to support the style in which I think
my wife ought to live. In this again,
we see a f ilse view of marriage a look
ing to an appearance in the world instead
of a union with a loving woman for her
own sake. There are very few men, of
industriou3 habits, who cannot maintain a
wife, if they are willing to live econcmi- !
cally, and without reference to the opinion
of the world. Tr.p ptmi pttiI k thp !

There are thirty green-houses, each firm

bears one thousand peaches. It is the

steam and hot water pipes, which ia all
are six miles ia length. The apparatus
consumes six hundred tons of coal in a
year. We saw banana trees twenty feet

tropical plant that can be named. Several
of the palm-trees are from fifty to sixty
feet high. The smoke cf the immense

coal is brought in a tunnel 600 yards un

The young folks of Ashland Ohio, are
''warring with their wishes" in a rather
humorous way. The Times say3 :
"A society has been formed among the
young ladies of Ashland, having the com
mendable object in view of inducing the
young men to abstain from all intoxicating
drinks even ale, beer, wine or cider. A
provision of the society debarring young
ladies from associating with those who
refuse to sign the pledge Laving become
public, some of the young gents refused
to sign, protesting against such action, and
formed another society, which requires of
young ladies, to make them eligible to
'good society,' to abandon -hoop, paint,
and Alabama silk. We have not heard
whether the two parties design nominat
ing candidates for the Presidency."

Who Is Afraid or a Lion?
Livingston, the African traveler, says
when the breeding impulse is upon these
animals, and a man happens to pass to
windward of them, both lion and lioness
will rush at him, 'but under ordinary cir
cumstances the lion is a cowardly animal,
and never attacks a man except stealthi
ly, unless wounded. A very curious pe
culiarity about him is, tha; at the very last
he will not make aa attack where he sees
anything to produce the suspicion of a
trap. A horse belonging to CapL Loc
rington, ran away, but was stopped by the
bridle catching a stump. He remained a
prisoner during two days, and when he
was found the whole space around was
marked by the footprints of lions, which
