THE DELAWARE GBAPE.
This fine grape, which was first disse
ruinated from Delaware, Ohio, and from
which it derives its name, is becombg
generally known, and is universally re
garded, wherever it has been introduced,
as eminently superior to any other native
American grape in cultivation. The per
fect hardiness of the riiie; its great pro
ductiveness ; the exqaisifa'beatrty, both in
form and color, of its rich clusters; its
surpassing excellence of flavor and qua
lity, together with its early ripening, give
it at once claims to public favor which no
other grape yet known possesses. I have,
in repeated instances, placed the Dela
ware before my friends, together with the
finest foreign varieties cultivated under
glass, such as Black Hamburgh, the Fron
tignans, Chasselas Musque, &c, and in
almost every instance the Delaware has
had decided preference over all the oth
ers. Mr. Charles Downing, one of the
most distinguished pomologists in Ameri
ca, says upon this point: "I have until
recently maintained preference for my
old favorite, the sweet, luscious Black
Hamburgh. But to the pure, rich, sugary
wine of the Delaware, I must concede my
preference. It constantly grows upon my
liking, and when I consider all its excel
lencies, regarding its fine, healthy, vi
gorous habit, as well as quality of fruit, I
can scarcely speak of it in measured terms
It is much to be regretted, that soon
after the introduction of the Delaware,
an idea obtained prevalence that it was a
foreign variety, the Traminer, which
grape it resembles in some degree; but
differing entirely in quality, hardiness,
vigor of growth, and all other respects
which constitute a hardy, out-door grape.
Under this false impression, thousands of
spurious vines have been sold for the De
laware, and in some localities they have
been propagated from for sale, and sent
out for the Delaware, by nurserymen who
probably never had a genuine Delaware
vine in their possession. In many, and
perhaps most instances, this evil has been
done unconsciously; for many persons,
Mr. N. LongworUvof Cincinnati, among
the rest, at first believed the Delaware
and Traminer to be the same. A letter
from Mr. Longworth, dated August 27,
1859, now before me, places this matter
at rest. He says: "The Delaware is
certainly a native grape. I do not believe
it has any connection with the Fox family;
and from its hardy character, cannot be a
seedling of the foreign grape. It greatly
resembles the Traminer."
The Delaware ripens from the 15th of
August to the 1st of September, in this
latitude, about '.hree weeks before the
Isabella. This fact, combined with its
power of enduring the severest winters
unprotected, and without injury, renders
it particularly desirable for northern loca
lities, where Isabellas and other native
grapes will no mature.
THE LOGAN GRAPE
Is a variety newly introduced, and hav
ing some claims to public favor. It is. a
grape very much resembling the Isabella,
both in bunch and berry. It is, however,
distinct in foliage and flavor from that
variety, and is also of greater hardiness,
and much earlier, ripening at the same
time with the Delaware. It is a fruit of
higher flavor than the Isabella, highly re
garded by all who have tested it, and was
placed by the last United States romolo
gical Convention upon the list of grapes
"promising well." This variety, with
the Delaware and Concord, are the only
ones in my collection which have endured
all our late severe winters unprotected,
without injury. It is therefore peculiarly
adapted to northern localities.
Is a new white native grape, of fine
quality, and great beauty. The tendency
of the vine to mildew, while young, is an
objection; but with increased age, and
vigor of growth, I have found this ten
dency greatly to decrease; and I regard
it as a variety worthy of a place in every
collection, and deserving more extended
trial, although it does not sustain all the
high characteristics claimed for it upenits
Is deservedly increasing in public favor.
It is a very delicious grape when well
ripened, and may be relied upon wherev
er the Isabella will mature. The vine is
a vigorous grower and tolerably product
ive, the fruit handsome, and scarcely ex
celled by any native variety, except the
Delaware. It is worthy of more exten
Is a very large and beautiful grape,
rivaling the Black Hamburgh in size and
appearance. It is a very strong grower,
and good bearer ; usually thought rather
better than the Isabella. When planted
in rich soil, is a most rampant ,'grower,
and requires some protection in winter.
Has been before the public for some
years, and although not of the highest
flavor, is well worthy of cultivation. The
vine is very vigorous, hardy and product
ive, and the fruit large, handsome and
good ; ripens early and hangs well on the
THE HARTFOBD FROHFIC
" Is a grape recently introduced from
Connecticut. Is of fair quality, quite
early, hardy, and very productive. Con
sidered especially valuable for northern
localities, where Isabella and Catawba do
not ripen well.
MODE AlfD TIME OF TLASTI5G.
I have found little difference in the
growth of vines, whether planted in the
fall or spring, When planted in the fall,
and slightly protected during the first
winter, an early start, and usually a more
vigorous growth may be expected, thai,
from vines transplanted in spring. A
deep and pervious soil, moderately rich,
is undoubtedly best. ' A clay loam, well
under-drained, will produce good, healthy
vines and fruit; and if abounding some
what with gravel or pebbles, so much the
better. If lime does no: exist naturally
in the soil, it should be pretty freely sup
plied; and if the soil ia poor, enrich it
with any well decomposed manure at
hand. A situation where water will settle
and stagnate about the roots will not an
swer. Such a soil must be under-drained
to raise good vines and grapes.
Geo. W. Campbell.
Wm. L. Morgan, of Pottsville, Warren
county, Indiana, says that seed from the
butt of an ear of corn will ripen its pro
duct all at the same time, and some three
weeks earlier than seed from the little
end of the same ear. He recommends
farmers always to break their seed corn
ears in two .in the middle, and use the
butt ends only for seed.
The above statement i3 worthy of a
trial. The facts for farmers are not all
known yet. Accidents and experiments
are yet to unfold much valuable informa
tion. Very much relative to seed and
seeding may yet be learned. That seed
should be perfect, grown under favorable
circumstances, full of vital strength and
instinct, with a vigorous constitution there
can be no doubt. The plant, like the ani
mal, inherits a certain constitutional
force, and certain qualities from its ances
tral seek. Plants have physiological and
pathological conditions, healthy and dec
eased states, laws of inheritance and be
quest, as much as animals. And all the
information relative to the laws by which
they germinate, live and grow, is import
ant to the farmer. He lives upon the
plant and animals. His profession relates
to them. They, therefore, should be his
study. All that can be known of them he
should know. All that can be made cut
of them he should make. Thoroughly
informed should he be in all that relates
to plants and animals. Expenseless ex
periments may be made on every farm
every year all over the country, and thus
many useful discoveries be made. The
spirit of investigations may do much for
Bayard Taylor thus described the mag
nificent green-house, which the Czar of
Russia maintains for the production and
growth of tropical and other exotic plants,
amidst the snows of Russia:
The Botanic Garden, in which I spent
an afternoon, contains one of the finest
collection of tropical plants in Europe.
Here, in latitude 60 degrees, you may
walk through an avenue of palm trees 60
feet high, under tree ferns and banannas,
by ponds of lotus and Indian lilly, and
banks of splendid orchards, breathing an
air heavy with the richest and warmest
odors. The extent of this giant hot-house
cannot be less than a mile and a half. The
short summer, and long, dark, winter of
the north, requires a peculiar course of
treatment for those children of the sun.
During the three warm months they are
forced as much as possible, so that the
growth of the six months is obtained in
that time, and the productive qualities of
the plant are kept up to their noimal stan
dard. After this result is obtained, it
thrives as steadily as in a more favored
climate. The palms in particular, are
noble specimeus. One of them, a phce
nix, I believe, i? now ia blossom, which
is an unheard of event in such a latitude.
A Kentucky farmer has been making
experiments in feeding several lots of
hogs, changipg them from raw to cooked,
and ground to unground food, with the
following results :
One bushel of dry corn made five pounds
and ten ounces of live pork. One bushel
of boiled corn made fourteen pounds and
seven ounces of pork. One bushel of
ground corn, boiled, made, in one in
stance, sixteen pounds seven ounces, m
another, nearly eighteen pounds of pork.
Estimating corn at 90 cents a bushel, and
pork at 8 cents a pound, we have for one
bushel of dry corn, 45 cents of pork : for
one bushel of boiled corn, 81,15 worth of
pork, and for one bushel of ground corn
boiled, 81,36 worth of pork.
If you invest money in tools, and then
leave them exposed to tho weather, it is
the same as loaning money to a spend
thrift without security a dead loss in both
The Art ornotllcarln
The art cf not hearing should be
taught in every well-regulated family. It
is full as important to domestic happiness
as a cultivated ear, for which so much
money and time are expended. There
are so many things which it is painful to
hear many which we ought not to hear
very many which, if heard, will disturb
the temper, corrupt simplicity and modes
ty, detract from contentment and happi
ness, that everyone should be educated to
take in or shut out sounds, according' to
their pleasure. - -
If a man falls into a violent passion,
and calls me all manner cf names, the
first word shuts my ears, and I hear no
more. If, in my quiet voyage of life, I
find myself caught in one of those domes
tic whirlwinds of scolding, I shut my ears,
as a sailor would furl his sails, and, mak
ing all tight, scud before the gale. If a
hot and restless man begins to inflame
my feelings, I consider what miichief
these fiery sparks may do in the ciaga
zines below where my temper is kept,
and instantly close the door.
Does a gadding, mischief-making fel
low begin to inform me what people are
saying about me, down drops the portcul
lis of the ear, and he cannot get ia any
further. Does the collector of a neigh
