. Delmont, Jugutt 27thf 1817.
Dear Sir. I have ai much leisure at this
moment as I may hive at any time, to answer
your of the 1 4th August instant. I do lrt pre
sume, that my opinion on a subject of much pre
judice and opposition, can be of much weight,
because a few practical proofs will far exceed all
personal assertions. I have been through my
life a friend to deep ploughing. I never plough
shallower than 3, and generally 7 inches. My
soil is of various qualities : Some of it has a
substratum of reddish isinglass sand, and looks
when trenched 12 inches deep, liV.e the moulder
ings of ao old "brick kiln. I prefer ploughing
deep in the fall ; because the winter operates fa
vourably on the fallow. But, spring or fall, I nev
er break up shallow. I had the last harvest a
better ciop of wheat than my tenant, (a good
plotfghman,) and as good as anjr I have known
not lest than 30 bushels to the acre, on a field
broken up in the fall of 1 8 1 5, 9 inches deep. The
sod was rotted by lying undisturbed and unturned,
and became itself a manure. I seed shallow,
and generally harrow in my grain, with orchard
grass for hay, or pasture. This is now above the
stubble, and I shall mow it in a short time. I
generally lime ray fall or spring fallows ; prefer
ring the former season. After a Crop of corn on
my ifmed land, I generally sov wheal, (but not
the same year with the corn,) and dung moder
ately for the wheat and grass. Without manure
I would take my chance of deep, against shal
low ploughing; but am littje acquainted with
sowing for profitable crops without bestowing
some manure, to entitle me to beneficial results.
I have been informed of some sandy lands on
the Eastern Shore of Maryland, which did not
answer well when deep ploughed. Out in most
instances within my knowledge, it is so much pre
ferable to shallow ploughing, that I have never
been shaken in my opinion or practice. I have
always ploughed new ground deep when it re
quired no manure ; and worn land invariably ;
though 1 assist it with manure, which is doubly
more efficacious with leep, than with shallow
ploughing. I know you will have to encounter
many prejudices. Some rising out of honest
ignorance, or wrong conceptions ; and some
founded in an indolent disposition to follow a
beaten track. Set an example yourself, and get
some neighbour to do the same. This will be
the most effectual mode to force conviction.
There ate, no doubt, some lands on which deep
ploughing will do no good. Hut such lands must
be very little worth j or be subject to very peculiar
circumstances, whereof no one can judge at a.dis-
tarice."';"''.'"'".,".', 77" 77""" '

Kvcry body knows the use of mixing, by deep
ploughing, u substratum of clay with a s-indy sur
face, and ice versa ; also turning up'vlrgin earth
to mix with an exhausted surface will in winter
operate on the fallow, before cropping.
I can give you no better answer to your queries.
I wish you success in your agricultural objects)
most sincerely. '
The country people around me thought me
crazy, when I trench ploughed 40 or 50 acres of
niy farm. The crops convinced them that insane
persons hit on some good things. Some of my
fields are yet the better for the operation, though
my fust essays were made at least 45 years ago
Although I cannot prevail on them to trench,
the most of them plough deeper and better thai)
formerly. My fields have been gene f ally assist
ed by all the manure I could obtain lime nev
er omitted. When I cannot manuret I do not
cultivate, Miracles have ceased, and no adequate
returns can be expected from worn lands, without
renovating fertility by artificial substitutes for tho
bountiful fruitfulness of nature.
Good ploughing is the foundation of all postern
or operations. How roots of any plant can thrive,
when they are impeded by an hard arid impene
trable substratum, I am at loss to conceive The
fact is notoriously otherwise ; and one would ira-'
agine that experience would supersede the ne
cessity of all reasoning. In England their e (Torts
are constant in promoting aration to its greatest
perfection. Ploughing matches and premiums
to ploughmen, are objects of the first considera
tion, among those who devote their talents, time
and money to the encouragement of agricultural
improvement. And yet I have scn as good
ploughing in this country, as I ever saw in that.
But good ploughing, or good crops, never met
my eye, among those who talked about turning
up clay and barren earth by deepening their fur
rows. A wandering exception may occur to any
general observation ; and one such exception
n viewed by prejudice through a magnifying
I should not know how to define deep plough
ing, unless I compare it with the superficial
scratching of too many old fashioned farmers. I
call ploughing of 5 or 7 inches deep common
ploughing ; us it is with most in this quarter the
Uiual practice. At least it is so with me.
