It was the watch ol the first mate, a man of greut fidelity, but being indi-posed bis place was taken by another. An unusual deg'ce ol Ic vil v and thoughtless security among ihe passengers, had just given place lo nlcep. And now all was still, 6ave the tread of the watch on deck, or the occasional toll of the bell to warn the ftihing cralf, if near, of our approach ; but we had more need to bo warned ourselves, than to givo warning Itootltera of approaching' danger.

Snll we wailed for the crash of the fore mast as the vessel was rolling in the sea. but it stood firm. Daylight, ever delight. I'ul lo those on tho deep, and peculiarly grateful to us, soon appeared. We found ourselves going on our way, alive nnd with every reasonable confidence of future life. We stood amazed at our deliverance.

The first obicct of n farmer in cultiva ting the soil is profit ; and the next to this the desire of securing ihe first with as little expenditure of labor and means as is possible. To do this, the quality of tho soil, its condition, and the size of the farm must be taken into consideration. Its very situation will, in a great measure. Ictcrmino the first; its condition will ol course bo depending on Ihe judicious or niutliclons treatment it lias received; ond as In number of ncrcs, il is evident, that ilhout n ccrlnio ntiiintily of litem, some inds of farming, such as grain raising, or wool growing, cannot be profitably under taken. Perhaps there is no one branch ol farming that can he ro readily adapted to all farm greater small, as iho dairy; nod while il is clear to raise grain exlcu-ively largo farm must bo required and much la bcr and money expended, a medium farm, one of eighty or n hundred ucres will be found best calculated for a dairy, as the hiring of servants can usually be dispensed w.l Ii in such cases, l or a man Willi but 40 acres to attempt the raising of grain for ale, and al the same time keep Iho neces sary horses and cows nod sheep required lo cultivate the farm and supply the family, would be on unprofitable undertaking; hot on such n farm a dairy may bo kept that will bo a sourco of great profit, when com pared wiili the capital invested. 1 o make tins matter clear, it may be bet lo make a few e.-titiialcs, in all cases getting as near well established results as possible, nnd where any Hung must be lell lo conjee tore, always being careful lo err on tho sale side of the calculation. A farmer wish es to commence a dairy with lew good cows not herd book slock, btvt good native an i mals. The price ofcows fur several year- past in the spring of the year has varied from IB lo 22 dollars wo will call it 20 bus making the cost of his cow.s 200 did lars.

Total expense, g254 00 If a il.iirv is a cheese dairy, much will be depending as lo the receipts on the qttnli ties' ol Ihu milk produced, and Ihe skill shown in making. Tne quantity of cheese produced vanes much in different dairies and in estimating profus, a medium rate must be selected. Mr. It'uwu, of Olsego county, made from thirteen cows 4700 lb of cheese, or 3GI lbs. to each cow. Mr F. Perkins, of Trenton, Oneida county, from 711 cows, made 3J.000 lbs. or 410 lbs. to eh cow; and in the same communication In; states, that the dairies' in that chec; making region vary from 200 lo 500 lbs. cheese to a cow. Some experience in the dairv business, nnd an acquaintance with latry district, leads us to suppo-u that 3j lbs. to a each cow would not be an extrav agant estimate. The average price ol'gooil cheese when sufiicienlly ripe lor sale, lo several vears past, has not been less than cents per lb., and many dairies find their sites have averaged 0 or J9 50 per cwl. Miking our estimate al U cents per lb., Hi receipts of a dairy often cows would slam! as follows : 3500 lbs. cheese, 0 els. per lb. jj2S0 00 100 lbs. butter, 15 cents per lb. 15 00 Whey for swine at 42 per cow, 20 00 g3l5 00 Alaking tho receipts irom each cow lor six months. 431 50 or, if we deduct tlie butter, as being most ol it necessary in the dairy ro on, it will leave the sum uf 10 per cow In some of tin.' best dairy dislrict- of New Fiigland, il has been common lo dispose of tho cows to drovers after the dairy season has closed, but little feeding in ij necessary lo render litem good beel. Cow.s are not as high in Ihe fall as in the spring, by about 20 per cent, and if our tanner determines to sell his cows in pre feiencu to keeping them over ihu winter, ihev will bring htm about I GO dollars. This sum must be added lo the receipt of tho year, making a total ol 475 dollars. I he will thuii stuud thus : Receipts, gJ73 00 Expense?, 254 00 asm becntn' bitter; and tl too high, ns is usually Ihu case in the summer, Ilia milk sours beforo the cream has time to separate, by which much of Ihe cream is lost, and Iho bullcr rendered of an inferior quality. In making butler, tn 'ro is depending on the quality and richness of the nolle than making cheese; as some cows, Irotn llie nine qiiatilily of milk will give double tbu amount ot cream that others will ; and hciico tho selection of animals must be made with reference to this very point. his fact accounts for the discrepancy shown in the quantity of bolter produced in different dairies, and tho varying estimate? consequently made upon the butter each cow will produce in a season. TIim are ome cows tlnl.will nuke a pound of butter day for seven or eight months, with gootl eepiug. and there nro others, that, if thev give half a pound a day, may bo considered ns doing well. The breed of cows has a great influence in determining the quantity or qnnhly of Ihe milk. The earl of Chesterfield, a short tune since, instituted a scries ol experi ments on some favorite cows of different breeds, the result nl which was as follows: In the height of the season the Qts. milk. Oz. Holderncss gave per day, 23 jonj; Horn 19 Alderney, 19 Devon-lure, 17 Ayrshire, 20 I'linf there arc few if any cows native breeds that will approach this qnnu tity of milk or butler, mosl innM be willing lo admit : indeed, an able writer on catth Hie rarmer, lliinUs Unit lew dunes ot ows in Ibis country will average more than from IG0 lo 10 pounds n jear. From some experiments we have made, and the reports ol some few ordinary dames fin holler, we nro disposed lo di-senl from tin- writer, and believe that with ordinary can in the selection of cows nnd the manage mcul of the dairy, 200 lbs may easily b reachjd. Mr Curtis, of Marhlebeinl, from common cows nnd ordinary pa-lure, for three years, made butler as follows: 1IUR cows, 1272 lbs. butter. 1I129--7 " 1175 1H30--G ' 1090 Which last is at the rate of 131 pounds to i cow, and Hint under favorable circtim tones to make the most oft he milk, tt'i know of cows thai produce a pound n day for nl leost three mouths in the higlil the season, a nil that without extra care or feed; still a naiivu cow to do this, mti-l I) .rood. For three years past, bit! lur. lakmg the whole season, will average 15 cs. pe lb., ii ml calling Ihe amount produced from cow 200 lbs. the balance would stand thus: Ruttcr from 10 cows. 2 000 lb. gjoo 00 Skimmed milk 43 per cow, 30 00 butler. 31:1 31 of our Insanitv.--A young man named James Down, was seen whilst standing on n pier at tnu Last llivcr, lo deliberately cut In throat from ear In ear and then throw himself into tho river. Immediatco tfjrls were made In rescue him, which he at tempted lo frustrate, but ho was taken out alive and carried to the Uily Hospital. 4221 00 Giving to tho farmer n clear profit of leven dollars upon each ol the tweutv acres used fur the dairy. Il mu-l he re marked however, thai lo produce this result, Ihu cows must be in guod hearl ond tolera ble order on Ihe first of May, and have omul feed for the summer. Cows that "shirked" through tho winter, nnd pasture on daisies, johnstvorl and thistles, through tho summer, will not reach the above mark. and the owners may think themselves lor lunate if the "summing up should nut show a balance Iho other way. If the dairy is lo be devoted to making butler, there will be bul little difference to the result ; though if conducted under la vorable circumstances, wo think making httltor rather inure proglablc than cheese. Many persons, however, connected with the dairy, think otherwise, and the odds at any rale cannot bo very great. To malto butler through tho summer, the dairy must he so situated and constructed that a uni form ptoper temperature may bo maintain 4330 00 Making a difference of fifteen dollars favor of butter over oheosenrikmg. When the milk is churned new from the cows, th quantity ol butter will ol course be greal er, but we have never made it in that wnv and have no authentic information by which the difference, and of course Ihe profit:, can be correctly estimated. Various estimates have been made of the expense ot getting in n crop oT wheat or corn; but whero wheat is put in after n summer fallow, as is usually the case, the expense of too ploughing, harrowiugs, seed, interest, ant! wear of implements and i lie land, cannnl be c-limaicd al less than ten dollars per acre. Admitting the average crop ol wnea; to ue twenty bushels per acre, which must, taking the whole, be considered liberal, and a profit of ten dol lars per acre, wheal at one dollar per hush el, which may be considered the average price, will bo the result. It would becnv lo make n list of the ileitis of expr.use. nnd hero, ns every wheat grower can make ihe estimate for himself, il he needs to be con vinced that Iho above statement is not far from lite truth, If the crop to be compared is ono of com, csiinntes mule with great care, by Judge Duel, Clark, and others, show that in ordinary cases the expense ol a crop, including labor, seed, itc., is al lea-t fifteen dollars per acre. The profits of a com crop are more variable in our lat itude than most others, sometimes rootling very high and al others, being literally nutiiing : and we believe thai if the ave rage c-tim ito of profit on nn acre nf corn is put the same as wheat, tl is as high, as ihe experience of the funning community will justify. If llie above calculations arc correct and il" Ihcy are not we should be happy lo have Iho errors pointed out, by any one pracne nil v acquainted with Ihe si.bjecl then the difference in profit per acre b.lween the dairyman nnd the wheal grower, is not so much in favor of the hitler as has bee generalU supposed. 1 1 liny however b said, Ihat the practice of dispo-itig of the cn.vs by ihe dairyman alter Hie season t closed, would in iho end be suicidal to tin business, if generally adopted, nnd hence. as a general rule llie cows must he kepi over Ihe winter unking r. necessary lo do I net from Ihe prnti's tho cviiensc of keep ing through the winter. Tins may be ad mitted, nnd Hie result would then bo as follows' a cow will eat a Ion and a hatful hay in the winter, wlnc'i at Ihe average price ofeight dollars n Ion would be twelve dollars for keening; rather exceeding, if there is any difference, the neat profit on each cow the fir.t season, then the dairy man enters the field nti Iho second year, with an unencumbered capital ; the cows nre paid for. and the entire anion, il ol'lln'ir produce, with the trifling deductions above stated, are lo bo counted as profit. L 'I our dairy cuunties luok at this nutter caro. Fully- it is well worth iheir attention. W. G.
