Tho following from the English Garden ers chronicle seems to be opposed to the idea entertained by some that the potato is worn out by continuous planting Ami cat be restored to health Ami i or Only by introducing new seed from its native soil farm journal. To the following Short account of an Experiment in ii the growth of the l potato from South America May perhaps a Rove interest ing to some of your readers. It wan under taken with the View of determining the correctness of at least one of the surmises at to the origin of the potato Din Case namely that our seed was worn out Ami that if fresh Stock was obtained from the country to which it properly belongs the disease would not Hij fou i to attack it. The tubers that 1 planted came from Perrin a Suano ship and were forwarded to the Loyal agricultural society in March 1851. I was fortunate enough to obtain Ono or two which were planted at once in Good Warden ground they came up healthy looking plants and seemed to Prosper until the time at which they were raised in october and were found to yield very Well without any appearance of disease having manifested itself while other potatoes in their neighbourhood had us Rcd considerably. The following year they were again planted under quite As favourable circumstances but with a very Dit Terent result the Quantity taken up was Small and fully one third were badly diseased indeed from about the Middle of August it was evident that they had begun to be at tacked. However Tho sound Seta having been carefully preserved were again sown this year with a similar unfavourable result the produce hat diminished in size Ami More than one third Are destroyed. From this to May conclude i think that the Dis. Ease is due to soil or climate or to local influences rather than to a degeneration of the the Plant itself or at and rate than to this country. I. 0. Fulham. Ice House management. Thu is a Mailer of no Small importance yet How often do to see i treated not Only with indifference but u on the very wont principles possible to insure its preservation not one ice House in fifty is construct cd upon Correct principles not one in the same number is managed correctly. When we consider that Damp and heat Are the two great agents of thawing it should be our Endeavor to counteract these by every Means in our Power. To direct this ventilation must be had resource to and non conducting materials employed in their erection. Of materials we May observe that Stone is of All other the worst Tim Ber and Brick Are the Best. The usual practice of sinking the ice houses to a great depth under the surface is bail it has Only one redeeming property which u he convenience of tilling from the top. It disadvantages Are the difficulty of admitting sufficient ventilation to Correct the dampness which build them As to May Issue Otoe just in underground House. The conduct of heat from the surrounding soil and the Dit Cully of obtaining sufi Cint drainage these very fur of Ballance the advantages Alius offered. Why Are the majority of ice House and most cellars during Winter so much warmer than the surrounding Atmos phere 1 i it not from the heat conducted through their Wall from the surrounding 501u Kaith is n much belter conductor of heat than air or in other , it communicates its heat to other bodies coming in Contact with it quicker than to that element. Hence the necessity of placing Between the Earth and the ice some Mower conductor of heat Aud the slowest conductors we have applicable to the can Aitt Timber charcoal or air both Sabo resist Damp while one does not Anil besides it is a rapid conductor of heat. Water is aug a rapid conductor of heat and instances have been known where rain water has so percolated the roof of an ice House that the temperature has been raised to sixty de Grees. Hence the necessity of keeping such houses perfectly dry not Only at the top but also throughout by sufficient Drain age of the melted ice and by ventilation to Correct the dampness in the atmosphere and Wall. Indeed the Walls of an ice Honse to be in proper condition should be As dry As those of a dwelling. The cheapest Ami Best Way of construct ing an ice House is to make its wails Dou ble with a space Between them which should to tilled with that excellent nou conductor charcoal dust. Where Timber � cheapest the House should to boarded in Side and out with the charcoal dust Between the whip where bricks Are cheapest they should be used. Stine May be safely used with such a Good non com actor Between a double Wall. Dry saw dust is also a Sooil non conductor and it can be easily obtained everywhere in our country but it should not be used unless perfectly Amer icon. How shall we preserve eggs ? this is the i grand Ane tin. We have in the course of our Lite tried nearly All the expedient that have recommended and sometimes succeeded and sometimes failed from which results you will say it is no More than fair to conclude that none of the methods Are infallible. We have Learned one fact from these experiments. Eggs should be perfectly fresh when you begin to preserve them. If an hrs commenced even but a slight decomposition it is difficult arresting it indeed we Are inclined to think nothing Short of freezing will do it. The following very simple plan we have never tried and know nothing practically whether it be effectual or not. We found it in the farm journal quoted from the English agricultural Gaza tit. We pass it Over to our readers for consideration. Take a half Inch Board of any convenient length and breadth and Pierce it As full of holes each 1inches diameter As you can. I find that a Board six inches in length and one foot wide has live dozen in it say twelve rows. Then take four strips two inches Broad j and Nail them together edgewise into a rectangular Frame of the same size us your other Board. Nail this Board upon the upon the Frame and the work is done in ice you choose to Nail a beading around the top. Put your eggs on this Board As they come from the poultry House the Small ends Down Ami they will keep Good for six Mouth if you take the following precautions take care that the a is do not get wet either in the nest or afterwards. In summer hens Are fond of laying among the weeds and gras and any a is taken from such acts in wet weather should to put away for immediate use keep hem i a Cool room in summer and out of Frost in the Winter. If two boards be kept one be to join while the other is emptying. The writer accounts for the preservation of legs in this Way by supposing that the Yolk louts More equally in the White and has Les tendency to sink Down against the Shell than when the egg is Laid on one Side certainly if the Yolk touches the Shell it spoils far Mer. Do growing animals need Light there has been a theory with some that the Mure diet you can keep a fitting Ani Mal and the d irked you can keep the room i or ten that he is in the faster he will cat leu. Now it i evident that All failing animals should enjoy comparative quietude and that darkness a 4 a matter of course aids Thisu e. Common Domestic animals when shut up in a dark place do not exert them selves much. So far As this is concerned darkness May be a Benefit but a question arises whether it is otherwise beneficial whether All the unctuous of the organs of the body the easy and harmonious play of which Are necessary to perfect health will not be injured by being deprived of a proper Quantity of Light ? it is thought by Many who Havo experimented on this subject that they will and that growing animals especially need Light and if kept in total darkness they will not j grow at All. We know that All Young animals love to i bask in the Sun that they never seem to enjoy themselves better than when stretched out in some sunny spot where the full flow of the skin will fail upon them unobstructed. Animals that Are born in holes Ami caves such As foxes woodchucks bears &c., al ways crawl out As soon As Large enough to the Mouth of their Dens Aad enjoy a " comfortable up " in the Sun. Leuce we infer that list is beneficial to them and that they should have a fair share of it. Propagation of plants by layers. The Best Nodo of doing this is to Spade up the ground lightly around Tho Plant to to multiplied. Then select a Branch of this year s growth and near a Bud which i will to buried Cut in through Tho bark and then turn the knife upward toward the 1 Point of Branch and Slit it up a Little Way. When make a Small ditch in the Earth and Bend Down the Branch into it so that the place Cut will be on the Bottom of it and nil it Down with wooden pins that have a look in their tops. Bury this part two or three inches and see that it be kept moist. Koots will Start from thu part that has a on Cut. In Tho Spring or late in Tho fall the Bunch thus rooted May to separated from me Parent Stock and set out to begin i Lile on its own strength. Porno Only cat in j a notch near the Bud that they Bury and some do nothing but the branches Laid Down Are found to Root quicker by bin Slit As above directed drapes currants Goose berries roses shrubs 4.c., Are very easily multiplied in this Farmer. Sorb correspondent at a Dis Tance write a follow which May prove serviceable to some of our readers " la your Home is troubled with a sore or galled Back rub White Lead softened to a paste with linseed Oil 00 the injured part till the sore is completely covered. Some recommend for this purpose a solution of vitriol in water. Hut the former i comedy is fur preferable and on the whole More certain to at Lect a cure.

An immense movement of which the mormons Are the pc cursors is turned towards the West of North America. The railway which is now in projection will unite the two oceans. From that moment the Anglo Saxon will take a position truly Central Between these two oceans and the parts of the world which they Bathe but this Central position of the United states will be truly conquered Only when the narrowest portion of the continent which is the shortest passage from one sea to the other belongs to them when they Are at i Mexico and Panama.

If the intellectual a sources and moral Power exist and grow in prop Ilion to these physical resources and this Materi al Power the United slates will reach a de Gree of development to which Iho human race has vol yet attained. Iho intellectual movement in North America which is just beginning is most worthy of attention. Now that old Europe is becoming More and More unfruitful it is curious to know if life forces of thought will be renewed and gain new Macip the from the now sources or if decidedly the originality of mind Iho Power of inn inn Hon the eternal sentiments of Iho heart of Man will to entirely forsaken disdained by Industrial societies and pitilessly sacrificed to Tho useful arts Ami material Well being. It is the opinion of Many that Heie after poetry the Fine arts must give place to machines and no longer occupy the place in the life of Man Hoy formerly did but join the superstitions and prejudices of the has scorned to take these ideas seriously for it produces Little and its intellectual products become less and less substantial and valuable. Will the United states create a now literature if they create it they will Triumph Over the opinion now admit de by Many minds hit Industrial societies can have neither poetry nor arts and that Iheson Noble pro Duci Iovu of the mind Are the a Panage of uncivilized societies. However it May be the americans Aro seeking to give them selves a National literature. They arc working with ardor they Are not i Leav snug now at least to i Usitalo Europe their Romanco writers and their poets Endeavor to express now Sioui innels under a new form and in a great number of their recent1 books the haired of imitation Seius to have replaced the ardor of emulation which for Merly made them wish to equal the silo and manner of the different writers of eur i rope. 1 heir style than Joe to this extreme Csire of originality m olten whimsical of fooled Ami amusing but is not wanting in Force nor local zest.

He has tried to make american applications of the German philosophy and thence his Fine essays in which the most extreme metaphysical elevations of Kant and Hegel Are mingled with who practical science of Trio Bunko inn i hard lie has seen followed or rather accompanied in this path by a great number of bold and original writers. In the intellectual movement of the last year there May to distinguished two literary currents which Are beginning to separate and Low on Paoli by itself Accord ing to All appearance will separate still More. We shall Call one the germanic influence the other the protestant influence. At Tho head of Tho school of German tendencies is Emerson who announced a few months a of a new volume 4 impressions of a tour in Europe the Mont distinguished poet of this literary group is or. Henry Longfellow whose Success in England and America increases Ivory Day. I Theodore Parker the theologian Tho author of the discourses upon matters Cou i earning religion has just published a new volume ten sermons on religion full of eloquent a sages and bold thoughts but whose christianity almost Elbow simple deism and As it i called in England and America infidelity.

The gratuitous distribution of the journal has Long been a favorite object with us and sometimes it is so very Dull that we fee conscientious about making people pay for it. We have Only been wailing for the and Advent of that " Good Lime " predicted when business generally should be conducted on this principle. Accordingly our paper maker who has regularly charged us an Advance on every renewal of the contract happening in we proposed to him the new Ariazi moment and suggested that the next thousand reams of paper should be on the gratuitous principle. It is not necessary to give his exact language but it was so decidedly and emphatically in the negative As plainly showed that the new philosophy had not made the least impression on him. We have not tried the proposition on our other creditors but the Lirt reception was so in promising that we propose to defer it for a Lew Days and this will account to our Wes Tern admirers for Tho non reception of our paper.
