" Yo road in America much of the ' ex
hausted soil of Jatrope.' 1 have seen
uono of it. So far from heiiiy; exhausted,
I think tho soil of Ihirnpu is now hotter
than ever. How can wul l.e exhausted,
which has, fur centuries, received plenti
fully of manures, and manures made upon
tho best po.ssiblo hysleins I 1 think a little
reflection, coupled with a proper oh.-orv-nnco
of I'ltropoau agriculture, inu.-t lead
to the conviction that the soil of I'uropo is
constantly reeeivimr more l ack in manure
&c, than ii taken away in products. Of
all farm products, thu atnio.sphero nnd
rains furnish tho Jur-jor ipiantities (f its
compoiieiit partt, and wherever a proper
system of immuring exists, tho ground
must hecoino constantly enriched.
In I'uropo, inanuro is the ever-present
idea of tin; furinor, nnd hy gntlierinq; all
ollals, and making manure in any con i iv
abe way, he does not only hy green ma
nuring, such as plowing clover under, hut
Ly stuhle, factory, street and dwelling
manure, take goe4 care to return to mother
earth tho rental she reipiiros, nnd to do it
without compound interest. Soil is only
there exhausted wliero crops are raised
which nro entirety removed, and of which
nothing is returned to the nl f ir instance
tobacco. This is very little the enso in
Kurope. Tho fine wheat crops which
smilo upon tho traveler, as he is ruhed
Juist than by railroad speed, would be an
impossibility, if tho idea of exhaustion
wrro true. 1 he meadows, too, which are
mown thrice every year, and each time
give a good crop, hn s I ecu mown for
ages, contradict this exhuustion theory.
Nol the l'uropean fawner and his land,
are always on good terms with each other.
The man yields good husbandry and the
land yields good crops. Correspondent

Am I Itemly for Winter.
' This is u ipieeliuu which every hcnc-id
farmer ought to put to himself in regard
to several departments of his business, in
order to ascertain if he has all things in
readiness for w inter. Wo do not propose
to name all the things, which upon most
farms reipiire to lie attended to before the
setting in of winter, but only two of lh-w
yvmeh wo think are neglected far to Ire-
riuenlly. How often, especially in new
fottleinnts, are stock of all kinds left u:t-

Me'. stalling during the u.iold of winter.
Nothing lo 1,0 seen about a man's premises
ia the winter gives us a more mif.ivoinhk'

fight of animals sull'ering from the waot

mutter much netrlected is the proper ear

Having noticed that currant hushes may
ai well lie made trees ns shrubs, I conclude
to toll yon how I have seen it done, In
the spring of 1SU, my father commenced
n garden, and among other things set cutting-1
for currant bu.-hes. I determined to
experiment on one of those cittings ; and
as soon as it grew, I pinched oil' all the
leaves, except the top tuft, which 1 left
grow. Tho cutting was about fourteen
inches long, nnd during the Miinmer the
sprout from this grew t"ii inches.
Tho next ipring I pinched oil' all the
leaves to nbout half way up the first year's
growth, so ns to leave the lowest limbs
two feet from the ground. It branched
well, and became a bandsoino litilo dwtirf
tree. When it came to bear fruit, it was
more productive man any oiner tm. ii in
the garden, and tho fruit larger.
Il was less infested with spiders and
other insects ; hens could not pick off tho
fruit, nnd grass and weeds woro more
easily ki .t from tho roots, mid it was an
ornament instead of a blemish. Now I
would propose that currant cutting bo net
in rows about four or live feet apart each
way (let them be long and straight ones,)
and trained into trees.-Michigan Fanner.
