s Spontaneous Vegetation.
. It is a well known fact, that on the first
clearing up of a new country, a new spe
cies of vegetation springs up; new woods,
new trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, all ap
pearing as if they had been sown and
planted by some invisible hand. . Burn
over this land, and still another set of
plants come to light, as if the Are had
brought them into being. Then again,
dig up marl for manure, out of the earth
10 or 15 feet deep, moisten a lump of it
and cover it with glass bell so that no
floating seeds can light upon it, and soon
white clover and other plants will be
seen starting up from its surface. In
some regions, the SinapU arvensis, a
kind of Mustard, generally grows up from
clay taken from very deep wells.
Facts like these have led many persons
to suppose that the earth has power to
bring forth certain products without the
sowing of seed upon it. Else, they in
quire, how could seeds lie buried so deep
and so long-, and not perish ? Vegetable
substances, as a general rule, decay ra
pidly, and why should seeds be an excep
tion to this rule? And what agency has
fire in promoting this vegetation ?
We dot believe that nature has the
power of spontaneous vegetation, either
in the animal or vegetable kingdom. In
the cases above referred to, we believe.
these plants were the descendants of oth
ers like them, growing at some former
time on the same soil, or in the immedi
ate neighborhood. The seeds may have
been deposited there by floods or freshets,
by the winds, by animals or birds. We
have seen rice taken from the crops of
pigeons which had flown a hundred miles
since eating it. Some seeds wiU germi
nate only under certain conditions. In
the cases first alluded to, these conditions
may have teen wanting, until the seeds
were brought up from the deep soil of
the well, or until the forest was cut down
or the fire cracked the hard and flinty
shell. Every body knows that vheat and
ether cereals taken from Egyptian mum
mies several hundred years ago have ger
minated. They could not vegetate as
Ion? as moisture and other favorable con
ditions were wanting. So it is in all
cases with seeds and plants. American
The fluidity cf the Berlin iron, from
which the finest and sharpest (although
not the strongest) castings are made, it
attributed to arsenic in the iron.
Cnrlcg Beet and Turnip Tops.
In seasons ct short hay crops for fod
der, and also upon farms whero large
quantities cf roots are raised annually,
the following method of curing beet and
turnip tops may ba found serviceable in
adding to the supply of fodder. It is de
scribed by an English farmer in the
Mark Lane Express, and is said to be
regularly practiced in France and Belgi
um, where root culture is extensively fol
lowed. The plan may be good, and we
give it as v:e tind it.
The roots are taken up in dry weather,
the tops cut off close to the bulb, and
carefully laid in small heaps. Trenches,
twelve or flffteen wide, are opened, as
for storing potatoes or turnips, and as
deeps as the dryness of the soil will ad
mit. If the land bo quite wet, the tren
ches should be dug quite shallow, and the
ridge or heap of the leaves raised above
the surface. When the trenches are
ready, a layer of lops eight inches deep
is put in, gently pressed down, and salt
sprinkled on at the rato of three-fourths
of a pound to every four cubic feet of
tops; then another layer until a ridge is
formed at the top above ground. Earth is
then thrown over the whole, and beaten
smooth and hard with the spade, and a
drain is dug around the trench to carry cfT
the water that is shed from ths sides. As
the moisture evaporates from the tops,
they will settle, and cracks will be open
ed in the earth above them, which must
be smoothed over, to shed rain perfectly.
The lower layr of leaves should be
thicker than the upper ones, to prevent
their becoming too salt by the drairage
from above.- No straw is used, it would
retain moisture and rot the leaves. The
evaporation and curing will be complete
in about six weeks, when the fodder is
ready for use, and, it is said, will remain
good until late in spring. When thor
oughly cured, the foliage is quite dry,
and hastho appearance of dead leaves.
It is said to be particularly valuable for
milch cows, increasing both the quantity
and richness of the milk. The usual
quantity fed is about one bushel a day to
each cow. All animals relish and thrive
well upon it. When fed green, especial
ly daring wet weather, the leaves are apt
to scour animals that eat them.
Decline of fiome.
On the gradual disappearance of "love
in the cottage," and the' disuse of the
"midnight lamp," "old oaken bucket,"
and other nuclei of old associations, in
consequence of the substitution of new in
ventions, a writer in the Philadelphia
Inquirer thus discourses:
"If we go on at this rate, all sentiment
and simplicity will vanish from the house
hold. Our homes will be woven together
into one immense hotel, drawing light,
heat, and rrater from the same source,
and it may be from the same material.
The whole domestic picture will have an
air of labor-saving contrivamce and ele
gant mechanism, with cushioned car3,
noiselessly gliding from, cellar to attfc;
locomotive dumb-waiters circulating with
stiff gravity through the table ritual;
steam calliopes discoursing musical asth
mas in the parlor, and nimble sewing
machines performing miracles of fancy
needle-work. The genius of improve
ment will have driven out the spirit of
romance from its last refuge and birth
place, and home itself be left disenchant
ed. In the meantime, however, let us
be consoled with the reflection that what
we are losing in poetry, we are gaining
in comfort and elegance ; and that as phy
sical conveniences are multiplied and dif
fused, the means cf domestic refinement
and social amelioration will be propor
tionably increased. The masses now live
as luxurioiu-ly as their rulers of a century
LMIe Children Dresses.
A distinguished physician, who died a
few years since in Paris, made this state
ment: "I believe that during the twen-ty-six
years I have practiced my profes
sion in this city, twenty" thousand children
have been carried to th? cemetaries, a
sacrifice to the absurd custom cf exposing
them to the weather with their arm3
I have often thought if a mother were
anxious to show the soft, white skin of
her baby, and would cut a round hob in
the little thing's dress, just over the heart,
and then carry it about for observation by
the company, it would do very little
harm. But to expose the baby's arms,
members so far removed from the heart,
and with such feeble circulation at best,
i3 a most pernicious practice.
Put the bulb cf a thermometer in a
baby's mouth ; the mercury rises to 99
degrees. Now carry the same bulb to its
little hand; if the ar.m3 be bare, and the
evening cool, the mercury will sink 40
degrees. Of course all the blood which
flows through these arms and hands must
fall from 20 to 40 degrees below the
temperature of the heart. Need I say
that when these cold currents of blood
flow back into the chest, the child's gen
eral vicinity must be more or less com
promised? And need I add that we ought
not be surprised at the frequently recur
ring aflection3 cf the lung3, threat and

Larsc Yield cf Wheat.
The American Farmer gives & State
ment from Mr. M. T. GolJiborough, of
Eilenboro, Md., from which we learn;
that a field of 27 1-2 acre3, on the farrr.
of his father, yielded this season Co
bushels of wheat to the acre. Nine of
the best acres yielded 61 1-2 bushels to
the acre. The field had been subject to
a rotation of corn, wheat and clover fora
numler of year?. , The entire corn culti
vation bad also been repeatedly manured,
with barn-yard manure, s-.varnp-rauck,
wood's mould, marl or lime, and especial
ly wih large quantities cf calcareou3ir.a '
nure, obtained from the Indian cyster..
shell banks. The field was ploughed sis
inches deep, but once, and harrowed and-
roiled'till tin earth was loose, and net a'
clod could be seen. The teed was drill
ed in with a nine-inch drill. For 13 1-2
acres, only 23 bushels cf seed was o?ed,
of white wheat. The straw averngrd 0
feet and six inches in height, but n.227''
specimens six feet four inches Icrg wr3

bushels to the acre. -
