Mb Wbight, Dear Sir, — I am id reoelpt of youra of the lltb, re lime, and beg to say that I bave used a good deal of it the last; few years, and have get very good results from Its uee for both oati, and wheat, I cropped the land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of it with fog tons of small lime to the aore, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore. Next cropped with oata and barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oati to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put m wheat and gave 40 bushels to the lore. I thoronpbly believe we could not get anything like the crops we do if it were net for the lime. Thii yesr I booght another property, and I Intend to use 500 tons. I gat it at Mllburn Lime Kilns. Tblsßsme faim I bought about | ten years ago, the party that had it pnt on a few loads of the email lime, and It ■howi as daitlnotly ai poiiible ; 60 bushel* waa about the highest I ever got ol Oeta until 1 used the lime.
