Pagina 272 - All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
Pagina 133 - In most of the towns there, for it is not quite general, there is much resemblance of some rich parts of France and Flanders. The inhabitants are collected in villages and hamlets ; and almost every house you see, except very poor cottages on the borders of commons, is inhabited by a farmer, the proprietor of his farm, of from four or five...
Pagina 395 - ... their profit, at the same time that their farms are in better heart : if they were in the habit (could it be effected on a large scale, of which I have little doubt) of treading their straw into dung by their fat sheep, sheep, they would have still less occasion to buy bullocks. Cattle in Norfolk of other sorts, do not offer much that is interesting : they have a breed of their own which possesses no qualities sufficient to make it an object of particular attention.
Pagina 364 - ... and southern counties. The county of Norfolk, the home of the new agriculture, was preeminently the land of long leases. Arthur Young wrote of this county : "The great improvements which for seventy years past have rendered Norfolk famous for its husbandry, were effected by means of twenty-one-year leases, a circumstance which very fortunately took place on the first attempt to break up the heaths and warrens in the northwestern part of the county.
Pagina 444 - ... tillage consists in three earths, with harrowing sufficient to make the soil perfectly fine ; and it is laid flat, with as few furrows as possible. The Rev. Mr. Mills, of Bury, observes, that the land should be well worked, and manured with thirty loads per acre, about a fortnight before seed time. Hemp may be grown with success on the same land many years by manuring annually.
Pagina 25 - For the first great benefit resulting from an inclosure, is contiguity ; and the more square the allotments are made, and the more central the buildings are placed, the more advantages are derived to the proprietors in every respect.
Pagina 149 - Drilling is a practice which will be found to answer to a certain extent; and with a certain degree of skill and attention. But when a minute attention flags, and the scale is much extended, then it is found that the conclusions drawn from one or two fields were not applicable to a whole farm ; that the necessary operations militate with other objects; and what was profit becomes loss. Were all the men, known who have tried this husbandry, and laid it aside, the advocates remaining would not figure...
Pagina 440 - A crop is gained at a very moderate expence, which is usually worth from 40s. lo 31. an acre ; oftentimes much more. But this crop is cleared so early from the land, that, it would remain exposed to the sun through the most burning part of the summer for three months,* as that ingenious gentleman rightly observes ; if left so, there would be a call for three ploughings to do mischief, except in the point of killing some weeds. (!) To give one earth immediately, and harrow in buck wheat, spares that...
Pagina 383 - In 1800 Mr. GILPIN, of Heacham, a considerable maltster, bought some beautiful barley that had not received a drop of rain, and trying a small parcel of it, found it malted badly : he tried a most uncommon experiment, and founded upon an idea very contrary to all common ones on the subject : he kiln-dried it by a gentle heat, watering it lightly with a watering-pot twice or thrice, six hours intervening ; dried it : after which operation it malted well, every grain sprouting, and no malt could be...
Pagina 440 - One ploughing puts in the winter tares ; that earth is given in autumn, and consequently opens the soil to the influence of frosts ; as the spring advances, and the sun becomes powerful enough to exhale the humidity, and with it the nutritious particles of the land, the crop advances and screens it from the action of his beams. Whatever weeds are in the soil, vegetate with, the young tares, and are either strangled by their luxuriance, or cut off with them before they can seed. A crop is gained at...
