The sf-Iection of a suitable location is
very important. ' "The '.bel sitjations are
generally oh hill-sides, with au eastern.
southtalern or southern exposure'.-' The
frer the location, and" the more exposed
tii the draught of our prevalent winds in
Summer, the Letter. ;The blopes adjoin
ing water courses should be particularly
aroided. 83 they are peculiarly subject to
fronts in Winter and Spring, and also,
generally, to mildew'and rot.
The soil best suited, for the vine, is a
dry. calcarious loam, with a porous sub
soil. Any soil retentive of moisture (for
example, wet. stiff-clay, or wet,- spongy
land of any kind) ; should be avoided, as
the grapet are much more subject to mil-
pulverized, either with the hoe, cultira
tor or plow. Should the vines grow ve
ry strong, they may be tied to the stakes
used for marking' off the ground, and
onlv one ehoot be allowed to grow. The
next Winter, stakes should be provided.
Here, again,-opinions diner, some pre
ferring simple stakes, others trellis. The
latter, is utid lubtedly the best aud also
the cheapest, if well made, in the fol
lowing manner. Take cedar posts, where
they can be had, if not, mulberry, wal
nu locust,' white oak. or any other kind
of durable timber, plit up about three
inches in- diameter, and seven feet long
roint tnem on one ena, any tuake nmes
with a crow bar. trto or three' feet dep
in the spaces between the vines, setting
the stakes firmly in these. To these
stakes nail three faths, one about two
feet from the ground, the others eighteen
Thny can be split from black oak, one
inch broad by half an inch thick. Pro
vided the sta es are , made of durable
dew and rot pn such soils, and' the vines I timber, such a trellis will last from.ten

The proline Should be trenched with a
spade to the depth of 2 to 2 1-2 fet-t,
and the top soil turned "under. Tne be&t
limn fT this, is in Autumn or rtry tarly
in ihe - Winter, as. the soil will then be
'mellowed by the fronts. Mr. Po-ch 1,
one of our miKst successful vvin growers,
throws in a layer of corn atalks, brush
cut with the leaves on in Summerr etc.,
at the bottom of the truch. This serves
as a partial underdrain. and also as a
manure, and is au e xcellent plan. Wet
spots may he drained by gutters, filled
with loose atones, covered with flat ones,
aud then filled with earth. Surface drain
ing may be doue by small ditchi-s in ev
ery sixth or eighth row, running parallt-l
with the hill-?idi( ami Itadmtr iut a
main ditch at the eul or middle of (he
vim-yard. Steep declivities must be ter
raced or benoht-d ; as this is, however,
very expulsive, they otiht to be avoid, d.

v.ii; tT.rrix. iix Ly six, or lew by K'.'m
feet, the proper di?tanc; the rows be
ing only eight feet apart, and the vins
four fet in the rows. . For Newton's
Virginia, six by seven feet jand for Her
bemont, m'x by eisht feet,' the rows being
six feet apart, and the vines being eight
feet apart in the rows, as this U a very
rampant grower. This will'give free cir
culation of air between ihe rows, one of
the grt ai preventives against mildew and
rot; and al?o eives ihe roots ample ipace
toj-prt-ad." Much of the quality of the
fruit also depends on this, as a free ad
mission of un and air will, of course,
materially improve the fruit.
Much diversity of opinion also exists
as to planting with cuttings or with not--d
vines. My' experience is decidedly in
favor of the latter, for the following rea
sons: 1st. A vine ought to have its prin
cipal roots at lea.-t a foot b- low the cur
face of the gruuud, but a cutiing will of
ten strike nearly all its roots near, the
eurtace. and will then ''never make a
good, healthy vine; when as, in planting
rooted vines, the roots can be placed
where they ought to be. 2d. Some cut
tings will always fail to grow. tvii if
two are planted in the same place ; the
vineyard '.ill netd muvh replanting, aud
the second planting will not make as good
plants, as the first. Where no rooted
vines can be had, I would advise plant
ing cuttings in a nursery bed, in tbe fol
lowing inauner: Plant them iu moist,
.-andy. wtll pulverized soil, in row three
feet apart, and three in :hes apart in the
rows in a slanting, position.' one foot dt p
with the lover end, with - the upper eye
just above thi ground, and ket ptnt-ni fr e
I rom weeds during summer, if ihe sea
son is favorable, they will make fine
strong plants for next Spring's platitiner.
The cuttings should be made of sound.
v II ripeni d,, young wood, and coutain
at least four y's or joints,' cut them elf
closely lilow the lower eye and ah.mt
au inch alove the upper; if a heI of the
old wood is left attached so much the bet
t-r. They should be. cut iu th- Fall,
tied in bundles, and buried in the ground
iii.:il wanted for. 'planting. This refers,
of emirs, only to such varieties as Ca
tawba, Labell.-i. and other kinds which
will grow from cuttings- Many of the
most valuable kinds, such as Norton's
Virginia. Delaware, and others, will not
jrovv from eufiturs. and must be propa
gated -by. layering, graftin2. etc. As a
general rule,' thie va'ieties which have
very firm, hard wo and but little piih.
will not propagatc-wry readily from cut
lilig. " 1 :; : '-!
In planting the vineyard, lay the ground
off with a lin. and put down a stick six
teen to eighteen itp-hes m , where ihe
plant is to grow. Dig a hole eighteen
inches deep in a slanting direction, then,
having pruned your vin to two buds; of
the young wood," lay it in and take care
to spread the roots properly; then throw
in a shovelful of rich, wtll pulvenz d,
surface soil about the roots, aud : fill up,
takin-T care to pulverize' all 'thoroughly,
aud leave one bud above th- ground. Oi
course, the planting sdiould be dune w hen
the ground is diy enough to be light aud
mellow, s ...-.,. : . ...
to fifteen years; is much more conveni
ent for tying with vines and training
the young wood to them, and will prove
the cheapest in the end, although it costs
more at firt, as it will not need revetting
as the Mnall stakes dot very Spring.
Th next Spring cut the-young plants
back to two eyes, and also cut otf the up
per roots on or two joints below the sur
face of the ground. Should the vine be
very strong, two shoots : may be left to
grow. Keep them neatly tied to the trel
lis with straw or lark, and pinch off all
suckers and laterals to one joint or leaf
beyond the 1 ading shoot3. The vine
yard mut be kept clean from weeds, us
ing the plw or cultivator between the
rows; and for the first hoeing around the
vines, um the two pronged German hoe,

will iniure them1 for a long time. Treat
th-m the same way as the Summer be
fore, with the exception of the caues left
for bearing, which must be tied to the
trellis iu the Spring, and all the shoots
on it showing fruit should be pinched
back, before they bloom, to just above
the last bunch of grapes; and the suck
ers, which afterwards appear, to one joint
A'ter the third y?-ar the vine may be
considen d as established, aud a full crop
expect d. It is in pruuing now that the
nicest judgment, n to the capacities- of
the vine for -bearing, is required, as the
success of the vintner in raising a good
crop, and also preset ving his vines in a
healthy condition, depends principally on
this judicious Summer pruning, in prun
ing, the vintner should have a twofold
object in view. First, to rai.-e a good
crup of well-devr loped and wtll-npened
fruit; and, secondly, to get a good sup
ply of strong, weli-ripeni d young wood,
to give a goo 1 crop next season. If he
prunes too long, he taxes the vine btyond
its strength, anf he will have au immense
crop of small, worthless fruit, which will
not lipeu well, and consequently; will not
make a good wine ; the young wood will
be weak and not ripn well, will of ten be
killed by the frot the coming W'inter.
and his vines will languish and often die.
If. tin the other hand, he prunes too
short, excessive growth wi'l be the con
st quenoe, and mildew and rot will fol
low, as the superabundant growth will ex
clude all circulation of air. There is a
ci nain medium point, which the obser
vant vintner will soon learn to find to
tax each vine to its full capacitw, but not
b-j'i'tid that when both objects will be
accomplished and a vieyard nnd r such
treatment will improve every yar and
lust. a long time. It is au impossibility,
iu a treatise , of this kind, to give Hie
length to which each vine ought 10 be
pruned ; as tliis depends on the condition
of the . vine, the variety of grapes as
some varieties require inuen l ;ng- r pruu
ing than others.) soil, locution, tc. We
prune a Catawba vine generally to oue
spur and one can, the first to two eyes,
the latter o from ten to twen'y. sometimes
even to twenty-five eyes, according tthe
strength of the? vine. Norton'- Virginia
can be pruned much longer.
Leave no more young shoots to grow
than are necessary to produce two good
ernes, which ought to be grown, if pos
sible, in the spur. All superfluous growth
should be ch eked, a? it will materially
weaken and injure t..e grapes. The prin
cipal con-siderati-m ' our climate rnuibe
to f rce th grape- as much as (Hissible,
as the mildew will seldom ' attack them
when the herries are larger than small
peas.. This is accomplished by pinching
'IT ihe fruit-bearmg shoots as soon as
the fruit is visible, beyond the lat bunch
of grapes, and afterwards pin. hing back
all suckers to oaf leaf, until the latter
end of July, when all jnay be left to grow
unchecked, to produce- young leaves,
which will -hade the fruit when ripening.
The first pinching in ought be done before
the blossoms xjiand.and then they should
not be disturb d until the bloom is ever.
Tie the young cans away from the fruit-
bearing canes, to give freer circulation of
oil. The n-xi spring it may be cut
about half - way through., chse to the pa
rent vine, and the second spring it can
b cut'of altogether.' Thus insertod, it
will strike roots at every joint and grow
rapidly; but as it takes much of ltsnour

replanting with young vines.
The summer culture of the ground is
precisely as in the first and second years.
It is generally observed, as a rule, that
during wet seasons, the ground should
be kept dean aud smooth, stirring but
ittle. During dry seasons, the ground
should be drawn t p to the vines, and well
stirred. Should a vineyard show a de
crease in vigor, it can be manured by
digging a trench just above the vines.
aying in manure, and covering up again
with the plow or spade. Vegetal le ma-
i .I -
nure, compost etc., l snouiu consiaer
most suitable ; but good decomposed sta
le- ard manure will al-o Jo. Ashes is.
no t'oubt. very beneficial to the vine?.
Shuiild a vineyard lay on a very steep
declivity, it will le liable to wash. This
can be partially guarded against, as re
marked before., by surface drains every
ixth or eighth row. But if two much
ground is taken away, it must be rcplen-
shed with ground, lhis caii be carted
to the vim yard, and then wheeled in be
tween the rows with a wheelbarrow.
This is very material, ns the vines should
always be kept wellsupplitd with ground
over ihe roots.
Pruning is best done late in the fall, or
early winter; but it can be followed up
all winter, until first of March. Fall
pruning is best, howi v- r, as it will pre
vent all flow of sap, ai d the cuttings are
also better, if cut in the fall, and hunt d.
than if winten d t- t ?!: vi-ies. In py-
