The committee Are sorry to find Tat one entry for spading. The value of this irn element for thorough cultivation certainly cannot be properly estimate in a Community where this could be the Case. The Spajer on this occasion John Mccullum of Saco was evidently familiar with its use and though perhaps somewhat embarrassed by being the observed of All observers showed that it was capable of doing some thing besides inverting or disturbing the Ward not Only was the Sward inverted but the soil so thoroughly pulverized that a gentleman standing by remarked u it was fit for an onion the committee Alanl him the first pro Indium of s4. After this Benj. H. Lowell proposed try ing his Apon the adjoining lot and al though he went Over it in rather less time your committee did not deem the work so Well done. As by making entry in season he is debarred from a Premium a gratuity of one Dollar is recommended. For the committee s. L. Goodale. To raise Cunt aim ugh. A writer in one of the Early volumes of the sort icon tourist or. Downing we believe tells us How to grow common asparagus to that it will always rival any giant production lie Imi is every Oue who hits seen my Beds has begged me for the med thinking it a new sort but i have pointed to the manure Heap the Farmer bust Bank and told to lion that the secret All Laih there. The sight was Only such As might to seen in every Garden. About Tho first of november As soon As the Frost has Well blackened the asparagus tops 1 take the scythe and mow All Down close to the surface of the bed let it i a Day or two then set fire to the Heap of talks Burn in to ashes mud spread the ashes Over the bed. 1 then go to my darn yarn i Lake a loan of clean Iresh stable manure and add there to half a Bushel of Hen manure turning Over and mixing the whole together through out. This Tuake a pretty powerful com Post. I apply one such Load to every Twenty feet in length of Iny asparagus Beds which Are six Leet wide. With a Strong three pronged Spud or Fork i dig this dress ing under. Tie whole is now left for the Winter. In the Spring a Early As possible turn the top of she bed Over lightly once More. Now of the asparagus grows naturally on the Side of the Ocean and loves Salt water i give it an unusual Supply of its favorite condiment. I cover the surface of the bed about a Quarter of an Inch thick with Tine packing Salt it is not too much. As the pouring Rains come Down it gradually Dis solves. Nut a Weed will appear during the whole season. Everything else pigweed Purlin All refuse to grow on top of my As Paragus bods. Hut it would do your eyes Good to see the Strong Stout tender stalks of the Plant itself push up through the sur face Eaily in the season. I do not at All stretch a Point when i say that they Are As Large around As my Hoe handle and As ten Der and succulent As any i Ever rated. The same round of treatment is Given to my bed every year. Tan8i l.v.\ti? Tran and is now Prei to generally admitted that All Hardy Trees and shrubs can be As successfully moved in the fall us in the Soring. Now is the Timo to do this successfully. It is of no consequence if the leaves Are not All off. As by that Timo they Aro in what is called a Stato of rest and in most cases have Well ripened Wood. If Success is desired care must be taken with Tho roots and it is use less to cd pet Success if Tho roots no chop Ped off nearly close to the Stem. The proper Way to take up a tree or Shrub of any age is to begin three or four feet from the Hole or in the Case of Large Trees More,1 and Uko out a Trench one foot wide All round the Stem As deep As Tho roots Are Likely to go then take a Fork and gradually break the soil from Tho roots until the whole it Hare this prese Tea the fibres the great feeders of the tree. The tree or Shrub can now be lifted to its future place a Hole hav ing been previously prepared for its Rocepa Tion at least a foot larger All around than its roots. The soil should now As carefully be filled in about the roots taking care not to Bury too deep about two inches below the surface is sufficient. If the Sou is poor some manure Well rotted or what is better decayed leaves should be mixed with the Oil to go in and about the roots. If the soil should to dry a Good soaking of Wator should be Given to Settle the Earth about Tho roots. Another Neces Arv precaution is to secure the newly not a Trees by s Akes from being fucked about by the coun try gentleman. Cold very. One of the editors of the agriculturalists in noticing the Garden of j. 11. Peck of Burlington vt., say we a a in this Garden a cold winery in which Are matured every son the finest of the foreign Grap Anil Jet the Structure was so cheap As to be within the reach of men of very moderate meant. Most horticulturists Are deterred from the cultivation of these grapes by the idea that they Are Nace Ataily very expensive.

Here is an account of the storm in of Chapultepec " it was it sombre morning Tho heavens being obscured with dense muck Clouds therefore not a Wall of Tho Eastlu was visible t j Tho Rye not even Tho Hill on Nhoh it stood could he seen nothing but Tho Bill. Saint lights that illuminated it Atli acted the eve presenting a grand imposing spectacle a concentration if Brilliant meteors suspended from the Black Clouis above be ing the neatest similitude to it. As we neared the Castle Tho greatest possible Cau Tion was observed. The men were cautioned not to allow their tin canteens to strike against their Musket or Cartridge boxes not a word was allowed spoken in Tho ranks every possible precaution was taken to keep the enemy in igbo Tantico of Ltd approach Onward we March with noiseless Steps i Lent tongues Ami palpitating hearts. Nearer and nearer we approached file formidable Castle bristling with Hen a raillery and containing twelve Thon and of Mexico s Best troops and commanded by one of her bravest and Best generals. Suddenly we were brought to a halt the division to which i was attached being intended to support a Battery under Tho command of capt drum Whiteh Hart Boon erected during the Niolu directly under the Castle. Just As to Hal Ted the shrill tote of a trumpet assailed our ears. Then the rolling of Drums was heard and presently a full brass band joined in. It was the enemy playing the reveille. A death like prevailed in our ranks at the time not a whisper or a breathing could be heard therefore so unexpected a the music that when it struck the ear it caused a momentary thrill to shoot through my Frame i Felt a Peculiar Siule scribble sensation. I have no doubt others experienced the same. Tho music was suddenly interrupted. Bang or wont one of Tho huge pieces of artillery from drum s Battery nud for a moment Trio dreadful Whiz z of its Iron death messenger was heard through Tho air and then its fatal crash As it struck Tho Castlo. Instantly every Lyhl in Tho later Wax put out and it was in Siblo shrouded in dark less. Silence was to longer observed in our Tho commanding word of Baxter Forward was heard.

The loud report of a nun from Tho Camlo and the startling noise of Rapo and cannister As it went crashing tearing through the tall dense Pul que Plant in my in mediator Vici Ity checked All further reflections on Ray part. The emmy had discovered us and was evidently determined to do us All Tho injury that he to ably could.

The fellow had conducted himself in this manner for two or Turco Houra when a shot from our Battery made desperate havoc with j the out works of Tho Castlo.
