TO THE PUBLIC.
XII AVE been credibly informed that there are
persons on the north and south side of thc
Yadkin river, and on different roads leading to
my ferry, who are and have been in the habit of
telling travellers that I have quit keeping up my
ferry, which I say is a grand falsity : And some
of them have gone so far as to tell the traveller
that I charge for a loaded wagon and team from
seventy-five cents to one dollar, which is another
falsity. 1 think it my duty, therefore, to inform
the public at large, that I still keep my ferry up,
that I have as good boats as there are on the
river, and that they will be well attended to.
The charges rre as follows: A loaded wagon
and team, 30 cents; an empty, the same; a two
horse wagon, loaded or empty, 23 cents; a cart,
23; pedler's wagon, with one horse, 25 cents ;
chairs, 2.5; a four wheel carriage for pleasure,
with two horses, 30 cents; a carriage with four
horses, thc same; horsemen five cenU ; footmen
five cents. JOHN S. LONG.

TURNIPS how to protect from Fly; OATS
in thc straw contrasted with Hay as Forage.
TO THE EDITOU OF THE AMERICAN' FARMER.
Washington, 3d August, 1821.
Sir I sowed five-acres in turnips, but
they have been almost all destroyed by
the fly or burnt up. A neighbor of mine
w hom I deem the first of farmers, has sav
ed his turnips by working thc earth up to
thc young sprouts ; whereby, first, thc
roots were made more distant from the
great heat, and secondly thc earth sprink
led on thc young plants, prevented the fly
from eating thc same effect was produ
ced on cucumber and melon plants when
young. This hint I give in haste, as ma
ny persons have not yet sown their tur
nips. Oats cut with thc straw and put in thc
crib, arc better food for horses than hay,
and one ton will go as far as two tons of
hay the former are all eatand the latter
being picked out by the horses from the
racks, is half lost. Oats with thc straw
cost 50 cents per ton, and hay costs one
dollar per ton. If, therefore, I sell my
hay and buy oats unthreshed with thc
straw, I benefit thirty dollars in forty.
I trust that these two suggestions, will
compensate for my neglect of agricultu
ral subjects for some time. I mean to de
stroy my racks dry leaves and corn stalks
must he my litter in the winter Vcrbum
10th August, 1821.
I wrote a few lines to inform you of the
ravages of the fly amonj my turnips, Sec.
About a week ago I despaired of my
crop, but threw on thc rows burnt clods,
and now to my joy, find a most agreeable
change many that I thought dead have
revived The fly has disapppeared and
new leaves pushed out, although my
ground is very dry for want of rain. I
mention this in haste, that others may
save their turnips If we have not rain
soon our corn will be all destroyed. I re
ly on turnips and straw to preserve my
cattle. If others make the same experi
ment and arc successful, we may have
found a preventive against thc fly, whilst
wc add a good manure.
WORN OUT LAND A MINE OF WEALTH.
FROM THE ALBANY PLOUGH BOX.
From the first settlement of Amer
ca, lands have always been considered
so plei.ty and so cheap by our prede
cessors, that little attention has hereto
fore been had to economise the soil.
Recently, from a variety of concur
ring circumstances, especially from the
stimulating measures of numerous ag
ricultural societies, it is found much to
the interest and happiness of individu
als to renovate worn out lands, as they
have been called, in preference to sub
mitting to the privations and miseries
of seeking new lands in distant regions.
Among numerous successful experi
ments to renovate worn out lands, the
following well authenticated fact is
worthy the notice of every farmer.
David Lawton, a Quaker farmer, from
Rhode-Island, settled some years ago
in the town of Washington, county of
Dutchess, 13 miles east of Poughkeep
sje. His neighbor, Amos Herrick,
pressed him for some time to purchase
20 acres of land adjoining his farm,
which had been lying in common, as
worn out abandoned land, for seven
years. At length Lawton purchased
the 20 acres at S5 an acre, payable in
five years without interest, with the
privilege to abandon at the termination
of that period. Lawton's purchase
was the sport of the neighborhood ; it
was pronounced worth nothing, as it
was subject to a small tax, and that
even mull?.: would not grow on it.
The ensuing spring Lawton fenced in
the 20 acres with substantial rails, and
proceeded as follows :
First year, ploughed deep, sowed
oats, and put on 8 quarts of clover
seed ; and a bushel of plaster, immedi
ately after sowing, to the acre ; and
soon alter the field became green, a se
cond bushel of plaster to the acre ; left
the crop to ret on the ground, and per
mitted no creature to run on the land.
Second year, put on another bushel
of plaster to the acre in the spring ;
there was a good crop of clover, which
was again left to rot on the ground,
and no creature permitted to feed on it.
Third year, nothing was done in the
spring, but a vigorous growth of clover
covered the whole twenty acres, which
was ploughed in with 4 oxen to a good
depth ; the whole field smoked while
the clover was in a state of decomposi
tion. As soon as it was sufficiently
rotted, the field was cross-ploughed,
and when mellowed it was thoroughly
ploughed for a crop of wheat, which
was: neatly got in, and in a suScient
quantity, in the month of September.
In the 4th year, reaped as fine a crop
of wheat as Dutchess county had ever
produced, which sold for two dollars a
bushel. Lawton paid the purchase
money before it was due, refunded all
his expenses, and had J520 in pocket.
Two years after he refused 50 an a
cre for the same land, and fairly turn
ed the tables upon his sneering neigh
bours. The soil was a dark loam in
termixed with coarse gravel.
On looking over files of English pa
pers the following instance of the hor
rible effects of the beastly practice of
intoxication, presents itself:
4i A very distressing event took place
at the house of Mr. J. Christopher,
inn-keeper, in Ecleston, near Leyland.
A man in a state of beastly drunken
ness, went into a room adjoining the
one in which he had been drinking, and
sat himself down upon a cradle in
which a child was sleeping. The mo
ther, that it might not be disturbed by
the noise and confusion of the compa
ny who frequented the tavern, had re
moved into the retired apartment.
The anxiety she felt on seeing the cra
dle occupied by a drunken man may
therefore easily be conceived but the
shock was inexpressibly increased,
when, on removing the stupified brute,
she found that the poor innocent had
breathed its last, having died through
Although wre have not heard of any
occurrence so shocking as this in our
country, yet scarcely a week passes
without a coroner's verdict being re
turned of one, sometimes two persons,
dving of intemperance. This vicious
propensity seems, indeed, to be gain
ing ground every day, notwithstanding
the many fatal consequences which a
rise from its indulgence. Nor can
this be a matter of surprise when it is
considered, that spiritous liquors are
now selling in some of the grog shops
of this city at a price little higher than
the price of milk. So long, therefore,
as it can be got at this easy rate, and
with so much facility, it is in vain to
denounce the use of liquor, or to ex
pect a diminution of the many acci
dents, and the innumerable crimes,
consequent on its abuse. The evil
must be attacked at its root : the num
ber of dram shops must be reduced ;
and all. kinds of liquors must be in
creased in price, before any effectual
check can be given to intemperance.
It is in the power oi the police to with
hold licenses from liquor stores. The
general government might, by a tax on
foreign and domestic spirits, lessen
their consumption. We believe a
measure of this nature would be gene
rally acceptable. Considering that it
would greatly increase the revenue, we
trust that a project so essential to the
preservation of public morals, will not
be lost sight of. National Advocate
Rye, manufactured by a process simi
lar to malting, is becoming extensively
a substitute for imported coftv.e. The
manufacture has thus far been carried on
chiefly, if net wholly, in Philadelphia, and
almost every vessel from there to this!
port brings ten, twenty, or even fifty bar
rels. It is perhaps a closer imitation of
foreign coffee than any thing else which
has been hit upon. It hr.s been substitu
ted in many respectable families. The
price is from four to six cents a pound,
not more than one fifth as much as the
Cobbctt is publishing, monthly, a work
entitled Religious Tracts, in numbers, at
three fience each. The following are the
titles of his three first numbers :
No. 1. Naboth's Vineyard; or God's vengeance
against hypocrisy and cruelty.
No. 2. The Sin of Drunkenness in king,
priests, and people.
No. 3. The fall of Judas; or God's vengeance'
Upon this publication, in his advertise
ment he says, " The six acts of parliament
tying down the press, make an exception
in favor of religious iiublicationsy and the
author thought it hard, if he could not
get his nose in among the privileged
