GRASS IS KING.
Charles Seyrahur, in an address before
the Wiscousju Slate Board of Agriculture,
"British agriculture is almost perfec
tion. Taking the farmers ot Great Brit
ain as oOT instructors, we may derive
some valuable hints from their experience.
Of the fifty millions of acres under cul
tivation in the United Kingdom of Great
Britain, less than twelve millions of acres,
are. devoted to 'white crops' or cereals ;
while over twenty-six millions of acres
are kept in permanent pasturage; Bix
millions of acres utider clover and rota
tion grasses ; and six millions of acret!
devoted to turnips and other vegetable.
Euglandi Wales, Scotland and Ireland
have about two and three-fourths millions
of horBes. ten millions of cattle, and oyer"
thirty millions of sheep. Repetition: of
white or grain crops is not permitted. In
stead of the -old process of restoring ; or
testing land by keeping It fallow eveiy
fourth year; which was equivalent to jibe
permanent withdrawal of one quarter! of
the tillable land from cultivation, the tur
nip crop, which its broad leaves that
sbield the sil from the rays of the sun,
and with its nutritious roots that are f-d,
before ripening, to cattle and sheep, is re
sorted to as the most effectual method of
benefiting both laud aud stock; as bien
nial plants derive their chief nourishment
from the air, aud do not exhaust the soil,
if used "before they ripen.''
The soluble part of the soil 'is the in
organic food of the plants. Itaiu water
ranuot come in contact with the soil,: or
even with argravel heap, without 'dissolv
ing some of it. Expose almost any stone,
or handful of gravel, washed clean, to the
action of a quart or so of rain water sev
eral day?, and, upon evaporating the wa
ter, it will be seen from the residue left,
that a portion has Jeen dissolved. Now,
let these same stones be exposed, covered
or partly covered with water, in a saucer,
to the action of frost, setting them out of
doors for two or three, cold nights, taking
I care I that they thaw , by day. Pour off
: . -.1 r l
the vater, vinsiug with fresh, and evap
orate as above, aud it will be seen that a
very much larger quantity has come into
solution. The res sun ia, that all stones
being somewhat p r us, by the action; of
the frost their outer portiou is broken up,
ecaled and fissured, and a Taslly greater
surface is exposed to the action of the
water, even though this flssnnin-j is not
visible to ihe naked eye. When land' is
'exposed to alternate freeiingr and thawhie.
I the same effect must take place. Spien
