The Earth is Safe. The London
Times says mankind are nsing op the
world too faat. Incessant cultivation
it is alleged, is stripping the earth of
its coat of mold, which cannot be re
placed except by a return to the
primeval forest,. There are facts in
existence a little inconsistent, with
that alarming statement. The plain
around Benares has certainly been
cultivated for three thousand years,
and is as rich as ever. The country
around Demascus was a garden in the
beginning of history and is a garden
now. No forest ever renewed the soil
of Northern Italy, nor is the glorious
fertility of Asia Minor artificial. Dis
tricts have, it is true, perishedj but it
has always been from' human folly,
the cutting down of the trees till -the
rain ceased and the well sank, as is
now occurring in some parts of Upper
India. When we conquered the Pun
jaub that va?t province did not contain
one treej'and in thirty years would
have become like the Babylonian
desert, a sterile plain, and from the

' The importance of the clover plant ia
all systems of rotation which have for
their ebject " not only profitable returns,
but the keeping up of the fertility of the
soil, can scarcely be overrated. Well
did the good knight Schubert, more'than
two hundred years ago promise the peas
ants of Germany that, if they ''would
grow clover, they should have-ample
cause tor rejoicing, and praising the Lord
out cf the fullness of their hearts, for
fli rich blessings. In pursuance of this
adrice "clover became," in the won of
Thaer, 'the basis of agriculture, the piv
on which it should turn," which in a sys
tem of rotation with oiher crops, "yields;
an advantageous produce, and at the same
time rnaimainVthe soil in a favorable con
dition for the .following crops' If this
was true of German agriculturei it is
equally so of that of many sections of thi3
country. -,Mr. Geddes, in his survey of
Onondaga Co., for the NW York State
Agricultural Society, opens his chapter
on practical farming with these words:
"The agriculture of Onondaga County is
based on the clover plant. -It is used for
pasture, for hay, and for manure. Strike
thi3 plant out of existence and a revolu
tion would follow that would make it nec
essary to learn everything anew in re
gard to cultivating our lands." '
Properly managed, it is equally impor
tant on many soils, to the New England
Farmer. Hence we would offer, sundry
further suggestions as to soils and seedling
The soils most favorable to clover are
those containing both lime and clay ; not
too great a proportion ot tne latter, but
rather that known as a clayey loam. On
such a soil, in aproper state of cultiva
tion, it is, according to Thaer, "in its na
tive, abode; nothing is required beyond
the spreading of the seed the clover
gt3 the better of all ;h lands that grew
around it." It will thrive on any soil of
moderate depth and fertility, if favored
by a season of sufficient moisture. San-;
dy loams, however, are often deficient in
lime, and also overcharged with acid3, as
shown by the growth of sorrel and dock,
which are apt to overgrow the clover ;
but ashes or manure will so stimulate
the clover that it will finally succeed. It
is said that a mixture of ashes add gyp
sum is much the best top dressing of clo
ver, on very acid soils; greatly increasing
its growth. '
Clover is bestr sown with some other
crop, because it rarely yields mucn tne
first year, and in the early stage of its
growth it is assisted by the protection of
other grain, which should be removed as
early as may be, for 4the sooner," says
Thaer, "the crop with which clover is
grown is harvested, the greater the
growth of the clover." Tn my 'experi
ence I have found it to succeed best with
winter wheat and rye, next with spring
wheat, next with barley, and lastly with
A goocl deal of clover seed has been
sown which has failed to produce the in
tended crop, and various causes operate
to hinder its vegetation or to destroy the
young plants. One cause of non-vegetation
is the deep covering, or no covering
given the seed. Sown on spring grain,
and harrowed in with a heavy harrow,
much is pbced too deep to be able to
grow. Or," if sown on the fresh soil, af
ter the grain is covered, without any af
ter treatment, unless a heavy ram comes
soon to wash it into the soil, the failure
is equally sure. On winter grain, it is
sometimes lost because sown too late. If
sown in March, or as sooti a the fields
are Dare, tne rreezing ana mawing 01
the soil will furnish a proper covering for
clover ; on spring grains I would rather
use the roller after sowing, or pass over
it with a light brush harrow.
Another cause of failure, one from
which we have suffered more than any
other, is the drought often occurring in
early summer, befora the younger clover
gets sufficient growth t withstand its ef
fects, and it is burned or dried up. Rem
edy: the earliest sowing practicable, and
manurial aid to induce a vigorous growth.
Gypsum, plaster, usually proves such a
stimulant. A light top-dressing of fine
manure harrowed in with the spring

in addition to the dressing of plaster and
On land running down to a very low

About Cattle. The way to sum
mer your cattle well is to winter there
well ; and half the secret of. good
wintering is to keep them warm.
Animal heat is generated in propor
tion to the abundance and excellence
of their food. Exposure to the cold
air withdraws heat rapidly, and of
course makes more food necessary to
resupply it, just as an open door
makes it necessary to have more wood
in the stove. . If your stock is run
down in the winter and come out lean
and feeble, all the summer will not
fully bring them in condition again.

In a late Lor.don journal we find a re
port of the proceedings cf a public meet
105 at York, at which the Lord Mayor
presided, and several Canca3 cf the
church avowed their beany supp-jrt of
the cause of the Norths -
The Rev. Canon Hey propesed a reso
lution declaring " that this meeting cor
dially approves of the policy cf nonin
tervention in" American affairs pursued
by her Majesty's Gorernrnent, ani avows
it3 entire agreement with the sentiments
expressed by the Earl of Derby ia tho
House of Lords, that it would be prema
ture to recognize the nationally of th
Confederate States,' at all event before
the Government cf Washington shall, by
an abandonment cf hostilities tgsinst
them, virtually acknowledge tneir inde
pendence." He then said, that in sign- -ing
the requisition calling the Govern
Bent of Washington shall, by an aban
doned of hostilities against them, virtual
ly acknowledge their independence."
He then said, that in signing the requisi
tion calling the meeting, it was for two
objects " non-interference " and " no
slavery." On these two grounds hs
thought there could be no' difference of
opinion ; but, at the same time, th:re was
that disposition among Englishmen to
take the side of the weaker party, and
say, " Well done, little one." Bat it was
their duty to look oack at the orig:not
the quarrel, and however they admired
the conduct of the Southern Confederacy
they must acknowledge their case was a

policyof the South had always been not
only to maintain slavery, but to extend
it and make it nggiessive. They had
only remained in connection with tha
rerihern States so. long as they had a
President to favor their own views, acd
the moment they found the Presidential
chair occupied by President Lincoln the

therefore asked if the meeting could call

who were disposed to take up ana sympa

nothing could defend the system cf turn

reference o a present interference be
tween the belligerents he said aa em
phatic No; Interference in the present
state cf public feeling would be not only
useless, but would embroil the parties
more and more. Applause. ' V
Uhe Kev. E. A-Teller then proposed:
"That this meeting, having in view cer

Clares it? belief that direct aid and co-op
erations Lave been afforded to tne Con
federate States by their sympathizers ia
this countjy, who havo negotiated loans
anp fitted out and manned vessels of war
on their behalf ; the meeting therefore
desires emphatically to - protest agaiust
such proceedings as an infaingment of
the Queen'n proclamation, and as alto
gether disrespectful and disloyal to the
status of England as a nutral power."
The reverend gentlemrn supported the
resolution by a n;ost earnest speech, in
which he showed that slavery was a sin
against the law of God. and that the sup
porters of those who were doing as was
refered to in the resolution were guilty
of a wicked act. , .
The Rev. Canon Robinson, ia intro
ducing thefolJowing resolution, boldly
avowed himself a Northern sympa.hiaec.
'That, this meeting is decidedly of
opinion that ths conflict now raging be
tween the two 'sections of the North
America republic had its origin in the
question of slavery ; and that as the ob-
ect of the Southern section is, by the ev
idence cf thtir own official document?,
to establish a great slaveholiing Confed
eracy, the meeting, entertaining that ua
mitigated aversion to slavery which has
characterized Englishmen and foreigners

time to express its hearty appreciation of

A great Union Convention was-held in

Tha position of Kentucky seems mora
emphatic now than at any former period .
of the war. The only disturbing ele
ment in the Convention, so far as w
have seen the proceedings, came from
Indiana. Mr. Cravens, frcra that State,
undertook to make a speech ia which ha
had no sooner begun to drag ialiis par

position was raised, and Mr. Craven
was obliged to desist. The Coavenuoa
