From the journal of inc Royal agricultural society of England one horse carts prise essay. By Edward Bowly Siddington near circa Cosler. Having had five years practical experience in inc of wagons and nearly the same Liine of one Livorse cons on a farm of one Hundred and seventy acres of arable and to in hey acres of Quot pasture land i have arrived at a satisfy Cory conclusion As 10 the comparative Adan Marjre of tie lat Ler. I will As briefly As possible Point out what i consider to be those adv Antares. We in St first consider the saving a of capital in entering a farm by employing one ii orse Carls instead 6f wagons. From the great variety of it is i ii cell to form a just estimate of the a noun of horse Power required to cultivate a Given Quantity of land. We May however to a certain extant do so if taking for our purpose land of . Of which description my farm Couch its. 1 have no Light blowing land nor have i More to an Twenty or thirty acres of very heavy land. 1 will therefore relate my actual experience. In the employment of wagons and the old Broad we peeled dung carts i required one Wngo Iii one cart and three Hor it Euto every fifty acres of arable land. I also keep a list cart for general purposes. Now that i am employing Carls i lipid a hat j get through my work much More easily with two horses and two carts to fifty acres. The following is a fair calculation of the outlay under the two systems 1 Wagon Jec 5 1 dung cart15 9 horses co extra i Arne is.

Balance in favor of carts total for it it a 40 04 41 10.j this shows a saving of lips Nils of is. An a cres which Money Young Farmers onid find extremely useful to expend in Slock or Impi ments. There is also some annual saving in the expense of the repairs under the cirt system As Well As that keep of one horse to every 50 ii res. I believe there Are those who think this of a talc that they can keep horses at a very Small expense say from 3"t. To of per week and that if fewer Are kept Illey must be fed More highly and therefore the Cost As much the a a ame forgetting that the More horses Are kept the greater number of hands Are required to attend them whose time Ulso is wasted if the animals Are not in a state to do a goo Days s work of keeping one horse less to 50 acres j will make my calculations from my own method of keep. 1 have not for years allowed my horses any Hay. In Winter i give Rhem 10 lbs Corn f meaning outs or Barley 10 lbs. Of carrots or a weeds and As much Straw Liall As they will eat per diem. The Corn i value at its. Per week the roots at. 9 1., and the Straw with expense of cutting in. To chaff is. I making in Tho whole 8s, per week which with is. For shooing amounts to i a a a a Jho in the sunnier 1 give to Lien Creon Clov Eror Veich is without Corn which 1 value at a is. Per week Iii King Jos with is. Addition fur shoeing amp a the average therefore for the whole year will be 7s, id. Each horse. It therefore Fol Jows that if we can save one horse in the cultivation of 50 acres it will amount to nearly per acre. I will now proceed to Llie working of tie system. It is i believe generally admitted time wih horse attached to a Given weight will Mouti it More easily than two Voi ses attached o double Lii Al weight. This arises it get Only from the advantage gained by having no the Power of a iraqi gift clo get to the work nut to Sonell the Power applied at the same moment which is Al nest impossible Liere two or More having Dilfer eni wills and Steps Are attached to the weight and for the same reason one Horn of will travel Inore quickly. I have often heard it remarks d to teams have pm sed Quot How Well the horses pull to Iother Quot when Perhaj s they have been moving at something less than two i Lesan hour and this i ready working teem will draw very no Silv one Hortio pulling to Tho right hand another to tie Lei to therefore a great saving a of Lime is Oenea is oiled in the quickness of motion of one ii orse carts. When a cart is filled there is no delay in attaching the Trace horses during Winch operation Tho one horse would lie two Lindred Yards on the Road. I know this might he die More quickly by having the men ready t i of Hanse in it i horses As is the practice of conches but i am Penkin Ltd of the utter of i hot working of the system. Then again when the ,. Tho one horse turns in much less tiny than the two of three. Triese foots Are too self evident to admit of enl radiation indeed 1 believe the Economy of carting manure with one horse carts is generally allowed but Tho employment of them in harvesting is much objected to. In this respect however 1 find them equally expeditious and comm Jineal. My actual experience is that three crafts with Tho Harvest frames attached will convey As much Hay or Corn in the Straw As two wagons and that they tire bound with ropes in Tho same time therefore no time is lost in binding. They Are easier to pick to than wagons Aii i not Moro diff inuit to unload and All the advantages Are gained of Speed in travelling. The facility with which Chris Are set the a trick As compared with wagons willed to it a it Tuchi greater saving of time icon in working Flonoi a Heap of manure you can Riso draw the cart to. All sides of the Rick thereby avoiding the inconvenience of drawing your Rick aside by Tho great treading there generally is on the Side on which you unload the wagons the usual practice being to unload All on one Side Isom the Wagon being too unwieldy in turning to be Sot at the other Side. My system in carrying a Field what we Call Quot double handed a that is with two pitchers and two Road Era a is to commence with one a Art having one Pitcher and a loader. Where Tho a St is having two carts loading in the Field and two unloading at the Vick and Tho number of carts Titi played in going to and fio must a regulated by the do stance of the Field from the Rick if very near one will be sufficient and More than two Are Seldon required on Why farm of moderate dimensions. I conceive it would not be generally useful to the Nikon the time occupied in securing a Given number of acres of Corn with carts a so much depends on the bulk of the crop As Well As the Power of the men employed. I once accurately remarked the time of such an operation it in carrying a very heavy crop of ten acres of a Loi in wheat close to the Homestead which took with five carts Lour hours and a Quarter from the first cart entering the Field to the finishing off the Tho Rick with the last. The longer the distance of the Field from the Rick the greater will be the of carts. Supposing each Wagon to be drawn by two horses three Are frequently employed and that three cans will convey As much As two wagons which i am certain will be to Ethan borne out in practice then three horses will take As much in carts As four in wagons and they will perform the distance in Little More than half the time. It is supposed that an additional expense attends carts in the number of hots required to go with them this is not the Case the boys Are younger and less expensive than those entrusted with wagons and the horses do not need any boy in Tho held As when they become accustomed to their work they will walk steadily beside the Cocks without being attended. There is an impression that carts will not answer in Hilly situations we find however they Are employed to the of wagons in some of Tho Hilly countries of have certainly nothing very Steep on my land but fifty acres lie nearly two Miles from the rest of my land on which Road there Are two very Sharp pitches up and Down which i am constantly taking loads and. Have never found More inconvenience with Carls than i form Ray did with wagons. But to prevent any possibility of Accident there is now to to Hud the self acting drag which retards the wheels in proportion to the descent there also a very simple method of moving the Load Forward by Means Ofa screw when going up a Hill. But i have found the carts i have answer so Well without these additions that 1 shall not go to the expense of either of these improvements at present. In taking out Corn in Tho socks carts will be found far preferable to wagons As in All other operations carrying a greater weight with the same ease Cori mencing in this however rejected their first introduction when he econies acquainted with the system he will prefer ii. Nor is the manure nearly so valuable As when the Quot horses Mirr Betir Ststa tvs hot this mod m Iem Mitch pm carry five quarters of wheat. Nearly the whole of my wheat goes 11 a Mill seven Miles Distant on the Road to which there Are Hills. I always Send two cans carrying five quarters of wheat each with one lad of eighteen or Twenty going twice a Day and in summer when the roads nerve a Good i have put five and a half quartets behind cach horse thus two horses would deliver Twenty iwo Qun revs in a d by i have endeavoured to answer All the object Lions i have heard used against one horse i arts of Jock ions which i once strongly Felt myself. My attention first drawn seriously to Ilie subject from hiring a Man to draw some a ions for training. Ilea Newith abhors Only Ibur Ioen hands Higl it and a Small Carl when Tho work in accomplished so surprised me that i at once decided to try two Light Carls which a Lor sic coding Well in All other operations i employed in the Harvest Lipold and being fully a uus find with Ahcin in tuis capacity 1 soon discarded every Wagon Iron my Larm. I have carefully endeavoured to give a just Osi innate in Tho saving in horses and implements by the Tise of carts since they were first employed by to i have cited cd a greater reduction in the number of cach than is Here represented. When i kept wagons i Hal not so much land by Twenty acres in cultivation asm i then kept ten horses four wagons three dung carts and one Light can 1 now keep six carts and six horses. I however at tribute a portion of the saving Toto Uso of scarified in Many instances instead of the Low and i now very rarely put More than two horses to a plow while at that time i ire i gently had Throe on Tho other baud for two years past i have it nned i Ono Hundred and fity loads o night a soil n of a Milo and u ii and three Hundred loads of Yoad scrap Ings ��c., Hal in mile which is two third More than i did during Iho time 1 had wagons. I have also done Earch year Tho following of Ira work carted thirty tons of Quot potatoes two Nilos go tons of v ois Milf a mile subsoil Lowed Bix or seven acres and carted stones or i teen acres o draining Thiny i get Distant. I Siivo there Oro taken All these things into duo consider Iii it and giving the a Aires rep reset Union in my Power i to description of carts i make Tise of Are five common scotch carts and one Skeleton Curt of the former with narrow wheels Cost to ten guineas each and with Tho Lour Iiah wheels which i recommend �12 with Harvest Franto ��c., Complete. The Skeleton with narrow wheels Cost me 10� it will carry More Hay or Straw than Tho others its loads being in proportion of four Caits to three wagons it is Moro convenient for conveying polos hurdles and one on a farm May to use fill but it will not answer in dung carting and its Adan Taglis in harvesting Are not suf Lucienl to remunerate for the additional outlay Ofa Dotibee Ike. In conclusion 1 May remark that the principle of Ono horse carts is quickness of motion therefore Load according to the Road to be passed Over but never reduce the Pace of travelling and 1 can assure those who Are Airaid about them that they Are much less liable to Acci from the Alic Higan Karmer a for the cow in our rambles about the i City we had the Good Luck to fall in with Davis the Man who keeps better cows and has poured out More quarts of milk to the Good people of de Trot than any other Man in it. And he knows something about co tvs too. He says that you Farmers in the country hardly know the Nean Rugof a Good cow. He brings age inst you the grave charge of Quot crimping Quot your cows and Well nigh starving them in the months of Feby March Anil april so that there is nothing left of them but a Quot rack of Bones Quot and then they Are Good for nothing the whole season. For n while after being turned to grass they Are reduced to Man shadows by the scours and by Dhoti the they begin to recover from this Back set the Vilics a Ira ready to tackle them and thus the poor Are kept Down the whole summer , he says is bad Economy and it is too. Verily this is a great evil under Tho Sun and if we knew what to say or do to Correct it most glad in would we set to the . 1/ scolding would do any Good for humanity a Sake or the poor cows Sake nov july scold until you cried Quot enl Quot a and now in the name of these poor mute suffering Meek in complaint Uno fending Creel urls we a a Vonald a a what do you mean by such treatment do they not Reward you four fold for nil you do for them. If you have no conscience then no sense of Justice no humanity now cow Manity where is your selfishness where is your love for Money As Well is of milk butter and cheese surely it must to Stone Bifid. We heartily wish that those poor creatures were gifted with the Power of utterance and could speak in their own behalf that they would get up a sort of Public sen Tiitu themselves have a great cow Coli Venison discuss their , peaceably petition for a re dress of grievances and if denied turn heir horns against their that would be right and the whole world might he invoked is a witness of the Justice of their cause hid the Coto ardly bipeds who have Groin so insolent in the exercises of heir Long abused authority would turn Pale with Afi Vight and be glad enough to come to terms. But we must rain our indignant pen. The Best Breed for . D., ii inks that a mixture of the Durham Devonshire and common Breeds make better milk cows than either one of them without pure Durham he thinks Tho least valuable of them All for milk As Hev go dry a Long Ime and even very Orlvin tiie season there to be a falling off in their milk and besides it is Ofin Perior Quality. The Best Breed for beef or. Thinks the Durham incomparably the Best Breed for beef. He says that you May select two beef cattle apparently of the Sartre size and fatness he one a Durham Atid the other of any other Breed and the in ring upon being killed and dressed will weigh a third he Uriost. The butchers he remarked this matter Well and when they go it to thu Colin try Ufier beef they always make a pitch for the Dir hair j tide of Trado and Many of the a Quatt tors and get them if they can ind the Liu , he. And strolling Indiana followed for a Ticino added ought to be a i be to it too no other in siness. J he that and so they had if such be the fact. The their skins Are not Cuifici entry firm and the Allyl Catok which i i�3 called the Cayman by Tho , is closely Allied to the Crocodile the principal Between them being that its head acid part of its Nick Are much Niobe smooth than Thorsti of the latter and that its snout h More wide and Flat and More rounded at the . The usual length of inc Alligator ii a seventeen or eighteen feet but it sometimes exceeds this. This is a native of the Wanner parts of America in some of which it is Aston ii singly no mar oils. Its voice is loud and dreadful and its Musky of Echt is so climes so pow Crft a a a to be exceedingly of intensive. The. Habits of Tho. North am incan Alligator arc described with great accuracy and in i very at using manner by or. Audubon. Quot one of the most remarkable objects connected with the natural history of America that attract the traveller s Eye As he through i the Mouth of the mighty sea like River Mississippi is the Alligator. There along the Muddy shores and on the Large floating logs animal Are seen lying stretched at full length basking and a sleep or crossing to and fro the Stream in search of food with the head Only out of water. It is Here neither wild nor shy nor is it the very dangerous animal i presented by travellers. But to give you details that probably May not be uninteresting i shall Der Cribe their More private haunts and relate what i have experienced and seen respecting them in their habits. Quot in Louisiana All our lagoons bayous creeks Ponds lakes and Rivers Are Well stocked with them they arc found where Ever there is a sufficient Quantity of water to hide them or to furnish them with food and they continue thus in great nun Bers As High As the Mouth of the Arkansas River extending East to North Carolina arid As far West As i have penetrated. On the lied River before it navigated by steam vessels they were so extremely abundant that to see hundreds at a sight along the shores or on the immense rafts of Floi iting or Strande Timber quite a common occurrence the smaller on the backs of the larger groaning and uttering their bellowing noise like thousands of irritated bulls about of meet in fight but in i so careless of Matt that unless shot at or positively disturbed they remained , suffering boats or canoes to pass within a few Yards of them without noticing the i in the least. The shores Are yet trampled by them in such a manner that their Large tracks Are seen is plentiful As those of a sheep in a fold. It on that River particularly thousands of the largest size were killed Wiki the mania of having shoes boots or addle eats made of their hides lasted. It had become an a the night they being Jesa Likely to be disturbed and having a better Chance of Surprise a litter of pigs or of land Tco noises for prey. Quot the Power of the Alligator is in Hig Reat strength and the chief Means of his attack or defence is Bis Large Tail so Well contrived by nature to Supply Bis wants or guard him from danger that it reaches when carved into half a Circle his enormous Mouth. Woe be to him who goes within reach of this tremendous thrashing instruct sent for no matter How Strong or muscular if human he inst suffer greatly if he escapes with life. This monster As he strike a with Quot this forces All objects within the Circle towards his jaws which As the Tail makes a motion Are opened to their Fuli Stretchy thrown a Little Side ways to receive the object and like battering Rama bruises it shockingly in a moment.
