Vitality of Eg3.
Eggs for hatching should be as fresh
as possible. Some say they should not
be orer two week's old about the time
it takes a hen to lay a clutch of eggs.
It is no easy matter, in fact it is im
possible, to fix upon any precise period
when the vital principle in the egg Is
destroyed, since it varies from the
first, according to ths vigor of the
parents of tho enclosed embryo and
the mode of preserving the eggs.
A safe' rule, however, 13 to secure
fresh eggs. TLosc who are anxious
to secure a valuable variety, one
chicken of which would he worth a
whole brood of ordinary or common
sorts, will run all risks; after Sevan or
tight weeks their chance is not entirely
"one : some of their chicks will be found
hatched,'if they Survive the first forty
eight hours the great difficulty are
afterwards no rioro weakly nor trou
blesome than others.
Whether for hatching or eating, it
is advisable to collect the eggs every
afternoon daily. Ihey should be
shaken a3 little as possible, for fear of
rupturing the ligaments and mixing
the albumen with the yolk; in. the
meantime air should be excluded from
the plants as much as possible. They
should be carefully packed in oat3,
bran, cut straw, or any other dry, soft
substance. It ia best to set them on
end, and not suffer them to lay and
roll on the side. Set them into a
moderately cool, dry room of even
temperature. A careful observance of
the foregoing rules may save many
from disappointment in rearing some
of the choicest varieties of fowls.
Wo have before said es for hatch
ing should'be as fresh as possible, and
if early in the season, care should be
taken that they do not get chilled or
frozen, as that would destroy their
vitality ; as soon as layed they should
be marked with a pencil to show their
age and stock.
The last week in March or first in
April will be a good time to set your
hens, and the pullet9, if well fed from
these clutches, will lay through the
following winter. Select the egs of
good laying hens, of good shape, and
of regular size ; by this means you
may much improve your stock. Some
who are very particular in these mat
ters will only put eggs from one fowl
under a setting hen, in order that no
mistake may arise as to the identity of
the chicks. In raising game fowls
this, of course, will be a very impor
tant rule; as the mail bird is the
object desired in this stock, observe
eggs of a good shape, that are longest
and sharpest at the small end are
generally found to produce males, but
not always, while the round and large
ended ones produce females. Last
year in a clutch of thirteen eggs there
were ten cocks and one pullet hatched.
Many person --rr 'a
l.:,lJ,j ror want ot a little attention
to them. It is an old but true axiom,'
that "a thing worth doing at all is
worth doing well," and this will apply
to the rearing of chickens as well as
to other matters. Convenient nest3
should be provided for the hens to lay
and hatch in. They should be secured
in sheltered places and filled with cut
straw, hay, or somo soft substance.
Old nests or boxes should be cleaned
scalded with boiling lime water, and
the bedding removed and replaced with
fresh. , A good hen will cover fifteen
of her own sized eggs, but somo think
thirteen area sufficient number, aod
there are others who give the prefer,
ence to eleven ; we think the medium
the most successful.
Place all the eggs, whether eleven
or thirteen, under the hen at once, and
mark with chalk or pencil, in a cons
spicuous place on the box, a date
twenty-ona days advance the time
occupied in hatching. Cor. Country
A correspondent of the Marl: Lane
Express, who highly extoles the cab
bage for feeding milch cows, store
cattle, sheep and swine, and more es
pecially for spring-feeding of lambing
ewes, says that the average product
per acre in England may be stated at
25 ton3. He gives' the. following di
rections for planting them :
The cabbage plants freshly drawn
from the nursery-bed, with tho ex
treme end of the slender fibrous root
cut off, are brought to the field and im
mersed in tubs of water, with the roots
downwards, and taken from tho ressels
as the plants arc required for nsc.-
Persons provided with dibbles insert
tho plants on the top of the drills, at
the distance ot two feet from each
other, making a hole with the dibble
for tho' insertion of the plant to the
depth it has stood in the nursery bed,
and pushing with the dibble the sides
of the hole together, in order to give
the plant a firm position. It must be
very carefully observed not to insert
the plants deeper or more shallow than
they stood in the nursery bed, as a
transformation of the exposed or
earthed up skin is the consequence,
and a necessary delay in the onward
progress of the plant. All plants with
a large foliage require much moisture,
and tho dung that is used for cabbage
must be thoroughly moist, and even
wet, whether it be cool or fermented;
the plants immersed in water, and the
insertion in the ground should be per
formed in the wettest weather in which
the work 13 possible to be done.
When any plant3 are seen to be dead,
the place3 must be immediately filled
with fresh plants in order to ensure a
full crop all over the field.

Pure Cblccic Sugar Cane Seed.
Ma. EDITOR : In tho March number
of the American Agriculturist, on page
63, will be found an article enquiring for
seed of the above description. Chinese
Sugar Cane Seed in the country has. be
come deteriorated somewhat by hybridiz
ing with other plants of the sameenu3,
such 0.3 douiah cum, Lruuiu euro, irf.phec,
Stc, and that frequent enquiries had been
made for pure seed, where they could
be obtained, which they could not answer.
In the April number of that very useful
journal, on page 101, may te found an
article headed pure Sugar Cane Seed not
obtainable, statiiig that in Francs and
Algiers pure seed could not be obtained
known to be urhybridized. For general
information I will state that in the year
of 1S55I received fron the United Statsa
Patent office two packages cf the seed
of the Chinese Sugar Cane, which had
been obtained from M. Vilmorin, of
France, and brousht to America ty Jay
Brown, Esq., and distributed for the first
time throughout the country. I planted
one package in my garden, the other in
the field, for the purpose of obtaining
seed alone. ! ' -
In the Spring of 1So3, l used the seed
obtained from the fiald package for farth
er experiment, whilst that of the garden
seed was laid carefully away, without
farther use, and would, perhaps, have
yet so remained had not the article al
luded to met my eye. I have since t3ken
it from its resting place and excluded all
other seed of the sorghum cr sugar cane
kind, as well as those of its genus, such
as doarah, broom, or chocalate corn, from
my place. I Lave now planted, cf this
pure sed, as much as three acres, which
will produce as much seed as will for the
next year satisfy the demands ot this part
of our country. It can have no othsr
chance than to remain pure, as there is
no broom corn or others of ,it3 ayecifls
growing wunin miles CI my piaca. I nave
tested its vitality, some of it is already up
and growing ficely. More on the sub

Cultlratlon of Tobacco.
Ma. Editor : As the cultivation of the
above named article must, from the ne
cessity of the times, become profitable to
a certain extent, correct information upon
the subject may bo acceptable to many of
your subscribers. If you believe with me
on this subject, I propose to furniih three
communications : First, the subject of this
will be the cultivation from transporting
to the time of gathering and houseiog:
Second, at the proper season', housing and
curing: Third, for next springs operation,
the best method of producing the plants.
The soil fur tobacco growing should be cf
alight, friable kind, commonly called a
sandy loam, muat be rolliog, not liable to
drain in excessive rains, new ground in
timber land is best. It is useless to take
up space in your valuable paper describing
the preparation of the ground, it is enough
for a good farmer to know that it must be
well prepared and checked by running
furrows each way three feet apart, large
flat hills should be made with a depres
sion in the centre, at the cros3 of the
angles, the plants should be removed from
the hot bed to these hills mthe latter part
of May, or as soon thereafter as possible.
In taking up the plants great pains must
be taken not to bruise or break the stems
or leaves. Plant one stock in a hill about
the depth i: stood in the bed, press the
dirt firmly but gently about tho plant,
afterward pour cn a pint or less cf wator
and cover with moss or a broad leaf and
ycur plants will live. Hoe out the weeds
and draw a little earth to your stock when
the transplants are ten days old, which i3
all the working your ground will require
Your next great trouble i3 with the
enemies to- the plant. The cut worm
will be the first while plants are tender.. A
day inu3t not pass without great !;!i jenca
in this part of your business, the green
and black headed worms may be killed
by simply pressing the leaf between, the
thumb and finder; with tha bud worm
skill is required or ycu m:y do as much
harm as the. worm, by destroying the bu'i
of the plant in kiiiiog it, fur rtnictaler
tha smallest piece' pinched will destroy
half thslcaf. -. OaiLyiionn error tfiapros-"
cation of this part of your work will de
pend ycur success in tolacco raisin what
the plant has attained iu groivth thsrii
will be formed at the top a gem 'or button
which will throw; cut fiuwers, "finally
throwing out capsules containing . the
seeds. Having selected a few cf.tne
best stalks for seed, top the rest cf tho
crop by. breaking eff tha button socn
after it is formed, if your plants show a
diminutive growth top lower than the but

of labor, and, consequently, the man who
accepts the sentence and faithfully carries
it out is a nobler man than he who tries
to live other than by the "sweat cf his
face." I said the fanner was at fault, I
shouid have said the fartntrs are at fault
for no solitary farmer can da muchalcne
