. Fattening sheep in winter, if properly
attended to, is one of the most profitable
branches of American agriculture. It is
so not: because ihe sheep increase much
in weight, but rather because of the en
hanced price of mutteo in the spring.-. If
we had to depend merely on what .sheep
gain. in weight; it .would hardly, pay to fat
ten the m i n wi n i e ri The increase m mu t -ton
would scarcely, payi for the amount at
fodder consumed, ; Thas a, sheep,, weigh
ing ;100 pounds,; would eat Jthree -pounds
of hay per day, or its equivalent; and in
crease say7 bnend a half - pounds pef
weeku ! From ;:the- middle; of Novernber
until the: middle of March, such a'sheep
would eat.330 pounds of hay ; and all we
get! to . pay for.it is.2i pounds of mutton
. ... tk MM
wortn,- at sit cents pr pound 31.44. or
S8.57 per ton ior the hay. But supposing
such a. sheep talae now. worth ihree cents
per pound, we should get. for.the 336 lbs.
of : hay consumed,. S3.20, ofc over S 1 9.00
per . ton 'This is: -the -proper ? light ;i 111
which. we consider the questiorrtjf fatten-i

repeat.- Do -rioti. torce tnem upoxL; tne
market,, and' thus crowd do'vn .the pfiue('
of mutton, which w'.tod low already. -
Mcttoa is now Ljequently sold by the.car-j
cass - in i.NewoYorki at: three, cents per
pounds. True isAea) com mind high prices,
but it ' is -on a ccount of the high price of
pelts, v and not because mvilon is in de

Ve have s:iid nothing about the value
of the manure, because, as'yet, the. farm
ers do not take this into consideration.-
Fattening: sheep in winter, will Day w'ith-

clear-that in. estimating the comparative

on the farrai the value of the manure

About Snakes,.,, ;; -
- r.The. subject probably- has a frbidding
sound to the reader. .' Many of us expe
rience a nervous shrillof uirpleasantness at
the very idea suggested by the name,
snake. ' But after all, about the only
harm they do us is in their disagreeable
effect on the mind. We. have the- habit
of associating the snake with evrryrhing
low, vile and treacherously fasinatinj,
and as emblematical of that lowest s'.ate
spoken of in- scriptural history.' But
snakes are not with us such very bad fel-
loWSfe',; They; are hardly ever injurious

eleven species native to ' this "Siate,:but
the most numerous and common-are' the
striped, the green, and, the red, snakes.
The rattle and black snakes are rare.
As before mentioned,' most' persons
have an aversion to the very name, much
more to the presence of a snake: but there
are ; still numbers of.- persons who are
not the least affected,, and handle them
with 'perfect . composure " and "freedom
front all those hervoas qualms; "A young
man- of this sectionwhile1n, the Western

specimen. of the -rattlesnake (Croialus
rorridus), and brought him home alive
in his valise, lie was upwards oi tour
feet in length, and was possesed of four
teen rattles. His stuffed skin is now in
possession of a gentleman interested in
specimans of Natural History. A little

How to Enlist a Company.
Djring the revolution, Capt. E-
ainember of one of the first families of
Charleston, paving lost, in a skirmish
most of his men," went into the interior
of South Carolina for the. purpose of en
listing recruit". "'Having appointed a
rendezvous, he spent a day.' or two in
looking, about the country. ; At the time
and place appointed he found a large
number assembled, ' not". one . of whom
would; enlist.' 'After some 'hours spent
to' c'opurpose, ;he appointed a rendezvous-for
the next day ann left the ground.
: N?xt day came, and with it the same
crowd, but he met wiih -no better success
than before. What could the matter be?
It was the first time during the war that
a recruiting' officer had been' unsuccess
ful, Somethihgiixnut' be .wronglacihe
.dterrafed to ;knor v,;hL Sfa&m
ing one of the rustics aide, he then said:
.''Why is it I get no recruus?"-.
'You don't think,' answered the coun
tryman, lthat we are going-to 'list, under
such a looking man as you are ? You
are dressed tuo tine to be much cf a
fighter." . . -
In those days knee breeches and silk
stockings were fashionable, and the Cap
tain wa3 dressed in that style J there lay
his unpopularity. . He turned to the coun
tryman; and remarked ? .if'
.- So ,5'ou , object, to my dress do you 1
Come, iiere 'to-morrow, and I shall i.ave
'The next "tlay the same crowd had as
sembled anxious' to know what idea the
dandy captain had got into his head.
After the crowd had assembled. Captain
K. stepped out and said," in a clear and
distinct voice; V 11 ; ' '
"My friends, I understand that you ob
ject to me besause am dressed finer than
yourselves. You think I am unable to
fight on-that account. . I. will whip as
many cf ; you as will come out, one at a
time, .'with the understanding that every
man is to enlist after he is whipped ; pick
your men and send them" out." '
i After-some consultation a huge, broad
shouldetedi fellow came out. The Cap
tian .drew . off his coat very cooly. He
was large and well made, and a superior
boxer. The countryman rushed up, in
tending to brush out the captain m a few
moments. Tie' mistook his man, how
ever, anil soon measured nis Ipngtn on
the ground. A greater bully than the
firit stepped out to take his place, and
soon took his place on the ground The
countrymen stared ; they had no idea
such a man could fight he had howev
er, enlisted two men, and must i:0t be
allowed to go further." The bully of the
crowd now stepped out to take the gen
tleman i a hand. He was a .stout fellow,
weighing about two hundred pound, and
brajrged that. he hid never been whip-
rpeo. He knew nothing however about
sparring;, and'ne soon tollowed nss com
panions, Never was a' crowd so strictly
confounded,' .Three. oMheir. best men
whipped by a man from the city. They
could haidly realize it, and stood motion
less. ,;-. .,- -, . .- ..
.'"Well, my friends, are you satisfied.
I have whipped three of your best men,
I -suppose you have no objection now to
follow their example."
"Not a bit I" responded ono of the
crowd. , .
"You'll do to tie to old fellow, Come
boys, fall in!"
: 'They did so, and in a short time the
Captain had his company filled and had
offers f, mora-than he could find room
for. ' . .
""From tne Sorgho Jo arnal,

;' Millions of gallons of excellent syr

year; while Dayton nnd Columbus.

made less than 100 gallon of the syr
up, and, some have gone as high a3
10,000 gallons and one firm in Illinois
has probably reached 50,000 gallonsj
for this season alone..-! If it bo a hum
bug, it is. surely getting to be a very
large, one ; and if we may judge from
the satisfactory reports of its cultiva
tors, it is one which will. pay well. -
.:This:, "however,' we shall speak of
elsewhere, and now give some items
of the early history of Sorgho,, and its
introduction into tne country., M :
"The tefmV Sorgho, is a Japanese,
of a' Chinese " word, and'by them ap
plied to a large number of gramina, or
grasses, many of which. are not prop
ably ' eugar-producirig plants. The
Japanese, who, in respect to agricuU

than the Chinese, cultivate the Sorgho
to extractrom i siijdr and alcohol.

cow, inl the-year-1852,8ome of the
stalks "ere exhibited uniJer the title,
uRecieux Gaouthlam de la Chine. "
The first appearance of the Sorgho,
in Europe, we believe, dates no fur
ther back than 1851,. at which time
Count' de Montigny, the then consul
of France at Shanghae, in China, sent
a collection of plants and seeds to the
Geographical Society of Earis, among
them the ''sugar-cane of the north of
China." About the : same time Mr.
Leonard Wray sent to the same insti
tuti n some seeds - of a plant having
much 'the appearance "and properties
of the Sorgho, from the east coast of
Africa, the country pf the Zula Kaffirs.
.. Through the interest which he im
parted to the subject, considerable at
tention was given to .its culture and
manufacture, and probably to none is
more credit due than the cele.brated
seedsmen of Paris, Messrs. Vilmorin,1

Although slavery is not recognized by aw,
yet practically the Indian is his employ

as the wages he gets for his daily labor

lessonsof the Wheat III fee "
Th8 midge has taught us a great less
on one'which could not have been taught
us so effectually in any other way xt
musfarm bdttr. We must sow less land
with' grain; raise more clover; keep mora
stock; make more and richer manure.
What land we sow to wheat .must be
well prepared and the seed put in eirly.
It has taught m that it is much better to
raise a thousand bushels of wheat from
thirty acres than from sixty. We havu
learned that if the midge five bushels of
wheat from a field that would yeald 3J
bushels to the acre. the loss is less than
if it takes the same quantity tr om a crop
that would yeald enfy 15 bushelf per acre.
The preporiio-n of loss is much greater
in the one case for than in the other. la
the one case, for every hunderd bushel
we obtain, 50 bushel have been destrsy
ed by the midce; in the other, only 10
bushels. And this is assuming that tha
midge does as muoh damage cath9 good
land as oo the poor, which is by na
rceans the case. Our motto cum bo,
"sow enly as much land to wheat as caa
te made rich and put in early and ia
good condition." This is what we havo
advocattd for years; and experience ts
fdemonstratid its correctness. Gerxesit
