. Sometimes this process of decsy ia counteracted
by the singular natural provision, of a conversion

which itself resists decomposition -peat." But,
with this exception, the tendency of the decay of

Alt heroa'ceous plants, whose projuceis carried
off the ground which product I lie in, may be said
to exhaust the toil upon which tliey grow. But all
such plants do not exhaust the soil ia the same de
gree j fir, after soma species the anil it seen to be
moro impoverished than after others. , ' .
Ami not only do different species of plnnts ex
haust the anil iu a greater or less; degree than
others, bttt the en me species does so according to
the different period of its growth at which the
plant ia removed from the ground,. ,
When a herbaceous plant is sulk red to grow un
til it hM matured Hi seeds, it exhausts the soil
oiore tliijp when it is removed before its seeds are
matured. All herbaceous, plants therefore, when
cut iu their green state, that ia, before they have
matured their seeds, exhaust the anil lerMhan
when they remain until they have ripened their
seeds. I hint the turnip; when used in its green
stale, is one of the leant exhausting in the agricul
tural clasa pf plants to which it belongs ; Cut the
turnip, when allowed to remain upon the gtound
until it hns ripened W seeds, ia one of the most
exhausting plants that ta cultivated amongst us j
and so it is with the rape and others.
t unher, certain plan la by the larger or smaller
quantify of manure which the comumption of them
fronts, are more or leas used in maintaining the
fertility of the farm. '
W hen a herbaceous plant ia sullered to mature
its semis, and when any part of these seeds is ear
riel off the form, the plant affords, when consumed
by ajilmnU, a atnaller return of manure to tlie farm
than if the same plant had been cut down before it
had matured its seeds, and been in that stale enn
sumed by animals. Thus it is with the turnip
plant referred to. 1 bia plant ia with us sown be
Tore rilidiumrrier. Iu the firsf seasoir It f nn
napiform root, and puis forth a large system of
leaves.- Lsrly in (he following season it puts forth
a Ions stem, which bears flowers, and the seeds are
generally matured about midsummer. If lliit plan'.
is removed in (tin first stage ot Its growtn 5 mat is,
after it baa put (brtb its large leaves and formed tt
roots, and ia then consunit-d py animals, it returns
a great quantity of manure ; but if it remains un
til the second state of ita growth, then the consump
tion of its roofs and leaves returns scarce any ma
nure. The juicea of the root have apparently been
exhausted in affording nutrition to the flower stem,
the flowers, and the seeds. k ' '
It is beyond' a question, that, in order to brings
plant to ita entire maturilyr hy the perfecting l
its' seeds, a larger quantity of the nutrient matter
of the soil ia sucked up by it than when it la
brought onlv toils fees advanced eta gea- When
crops of plants, therefore, are suffered to arrive at
maturity they are greatly moe exhausters of the
soil on which' they grow than when iheytare cut
