By mulching, the inexperienced reader

other material, upon the surface of the

vanou3 other plants. We hone ererv

the practice, but there i little danger of
it. To our new, it is one of the moit

pump the soil still drier than it would be

ground between and around the trees with
a few inches thick of forest-leaves, or
straw, or tan-bark, and the soil will con

The tress, too, will make a better growth.
xetmulcning should be applied with
some care and discrimination. For in

Summer, except in the case of newly
planted trees. Jrrom April to Junu it
would be better to kee n the soil clean and
loose with the cultivator and hoe ; for, if
covered earlier, it would keep out the
genial heat of the sun, and so retard the
growth of both leaves and roots. Wait
until the ground gets well warmed and
vivified, until the manures have been well
worked into the soil Ly the hoe, and until
the ordinary rains and dews of early
Summer seem insufficient to keep the
ground properly mo:st; then put on the
blanket of leaves, or straw, or refu?e hay.
or cut weeds. So treated, it will maiter
litter whether it rains or not, lor several
weeks at a time, for the mulch will urret

where they h ive opened out auo areoiirring on me mom
worted together which are matched atout
in tht3 same way. It is not an easy mat
ter to find a pair of horses well not to
say perfectly matched in every respect;
and we regard the thtnj as impossible,
unless they are of the same Hood on loth
sidf. In market it is essential to a pood
price that horses offered in rairs should le
of equal size, similarity cf lui!d, and
colored alike to a shade. These qualities
are of importance e.s affecting the market
val je of horses offered for sale as match
ed pairs, Lut there are, ia our opinion
other considerations of vastly mere im
portance as affecting the real value of
matched horses. They should hare the
same temperament; that is, one should
not le quii k and nervous, always ready to
itart at the first signal, and the oih r
ilo v and rhf Ignntic. ntver ready to move
until started ly the whip; and a pair of
horses perfectly matched in size and color,
but of different actions, are ill matched.
Therefore a span of well matched horses
should have the same spirit, action, tem
perament, gait and disposition, a? well as
color, from and size.
Then again matched horses should b
caited alike when they walk or trot.
Many horses that will together cannot
walk together, because one may niturally
walk fast and the other slow, and the fnst
walker takes more than his share of the
load, while the othefis greatly worried
to keep pace with his mate, and ambition
and courage never can make up for a
natural slow walking gait; and although
a pair of horses may move along together
when upon a walk because the slow walk
er has the disposition to keep up with his
mate, yet he is worried in periorming what
his mate does with the most perfect ease.
In matching, or selecting a pair of match
ed horses, there are many things to le
taken into account, besides color, size, &.c.
As we nave said above, it is a difficult
thing to get a pair of horses well match
ed unless they are the same Hood on loth
sides. A spirited, sprightly ambitious
nervous Morgan never will work well
with a dead mettled dunghill. Thorough
brids of the same stock have a similarity
.f temperament, disposition and gait, if
not of size and o-lir; and when they are
found to ma' h in color and size, the same
distrepfneies do not exit between ilum
as between dunghills. Take ihe differ nt
families of Morgans, and if kt pure.
they will be found to possess the same
general leading characteristics, and when
trot together make valuable pairs. In
this view of the subject of horse raising,
who can doubt that the wisest, cheupe&t
and lea: to bestow great care upon the
stock used for breeders? -American

where consumers must necessarily, in tho
regular course of their business, como in

Watering Pot Flowers,
In the operation of watering potted
plants per;-on-i not familiar with plant cul
tore are Bpt to make serious mistakes.
Cultivators find by experience that a ex
cess of water at the roots is very iniuri
to almost all plants, and hence it is usual
to direct that great ciutionbe used in tha
application of water, efpecally in tho
winter. The result i., that frequently
the opposite extreme is fallen into, to tho
great injury of the plants. From the
moment that the soil becomes so far dried
that the fibres of the roots cannct absorb
moisture. Some plants can bear this loss
of water wuh more in. puniiy than others;
tome again, and the erica family araonj
thu rest, ore in this way destroyed. Th
object in watering thculd be to prevent
thissfjge cf dryness being reached, at
iea;t during the time the plant iscrowirrr.
and at all times in the case cf these of
very rii;id structure ; at tho tame time
that excess v.hich would sodden th soil
and gorge tho plants is alio avoided.
nhui these Ji. nits the most experienced
persons may follow sound directions for
the application of water with safety, bu
whatever water is given to pot p!ant
enough fhould be employed to wet tho
.-oil thoroughly, and the difference be
tween j burs that require more or less
water jould be mad by watering mora
or less frequently, and not by giving
greater or 1-sa quantities at one lira.
