pleasure and mine where a luscious Jead is sure to be struck every year From the Patent Office Report for A few Facts Soils Soils contain ns a general thing not more than one part in a thousand of the atoms in an available condition which nature consumes in forming u crop of any kind This statement expresses a fact of great practical importance for the husbanding of these fertilizing atoms is the first step toward arresting the im- provement of the earth It is the mailer in soil which makes crops in one ar- rangement of its atoms and forms nure in another condition of the same atoms that the farmer should learn to preserve from waste and toss Soils of differen degrees of ness where mechanical texture and physical properties are alike always con- lain unlike quantities of the food of crops It seems to make littls difference how small is the amount of the lacking dient in the composition of cultivated plants Its absence is fatal to the farther growth of the crop after its appropriate aliment fails in the soil It is easy to discover the wisdom of this universal law Suppose nature should organize grass grain and other plants which serve as th daily food of all tho higher orders of animals as well without of lime as with that mineral it be passible for such and grain to yield to the blood of domestic an i and of rimn himself that solid earthy matter which imparts strength to human bones and to those of oxen horses sheep and swine f Certainly not though iron la always present in the food nnd blood of animals no farmer ever killed a calf a pig or an ox which had iron far the frame of its system No atomist ever h bone in the body of a person formed of other earthy thaM such Providence ft ad f Kerf for function in The brains and muscles of nil animals contain both sulphur and phosphorus as elements If daily food derived ns il is from the soil lacked either sulphur or phosphorus must not this cal defect in their nourishment soon induce weakness nnd disease and finally result in premature To prevent so disastrous and so obvious refuses to organize plants out the presence in the soil in an available form of those peculiar atoms adapted alike to wants of vegetable and animal vitality This wise should be carefully studied by every who desires to enjoy sound health and a long nnd life Most of the ills flesh is heir as well ns most mal- of their in the lation of nature's iaws The growth and constitutional vigor of all living beings not less the tion of the earth on its axis iro governed by immutable laws One of these pears to bo atom of carbon coal shall not perform function of an atom of iron nor can nn atom of iron perform the office of an atom of carbon or that of any other element concerned in organism of and animals There are only some fifteen kinds of bodies used by nature in ing every vegetable and animal substance produced on the farm in the orchard or in the garden The science economy consists in the systematic study of atoms and the laws by which they nre governed whether lhay exist in solid or crumbling rocks in loose earths in vegetable or animal mould in fermenting manure in iho living sues and cells of organized linings or in the form of invisible diffused through the atmosphere Every product of cultural labor is either a vegetable or on animal substance and in its production not an atom of new is called into existence nor is it possible to annihilate an atom when it decays In ths language of science nil matter which ia neither vegetable nor animal in- air and water is mineral All minerals aro either solids like sand clay and lime or like water or gases liko common air The deals largely with atoms in each of these forms and hence he should be with the several sciences which treat of the al phenomena Witnessed in the mineral vegetable animal kingdoms lie should know that plants alone subsist on mineral or disorganized if were no plants in the ocean nor on the land neither marine nor land animals could have a being In the absence of all vegetation it is obvious nil mals must be carnivorous or cense to con- sume organized Being wholly on mutual for the means of subsistence every day would diminish the supply of food and the last animal would soon die of starvation From tho above reasoning it is that vegetable lilo is older on this planet than animal life and that plants mny i have flourished thousands of years before iho lowest lype which depended wholly on organized food for subsistence was created It will also be seen that the line of between and plants is well defined by the fact that tho latter can organize the elements of all vegetable and substances into com- pound bodies which the former do All plants produce nnd increase matter all animals nnd ish the quantity of organized food Ill is gratifying to see the reaped which is uniformly paid to the of the Democratic State Convention the Whigs aro giving them tha most flattering throughout the Stain The ing from
