It is a much applauded saying of Dean Ewift, that he whttdiscover bow to make two tpirei of grass grow where only on grew before, it enti tled to more real glory thar the greatest of he roe. ' For tin ram reason it may be Mud, that fee who introduces into a country a new . specie f nutritiout co (HMf of more than four time ' the value of any hitherto cultivated in that coun try, merit the lasting gratitude of every man in it. The public, more iarlicu!arly that part to ' whom the following article if addressed, and to whom it fill find iu way through (be medium of ear country paper, will thankfully receive it, and, wo presume, will, without delay, avail themselves of the information it to liberally com - nyiiiicBtes. For the MewYtak Etcning Put. " To tar mm and Gardeners. When I publish - : 1, torn tune ago, my account of the crops el . Itula Saga, or Rat - in, or Swedish turnip, I was by no means aware, that I wai exposing myself to any species of criticism much les did I imagine, that I wa in the way to incur the charge of being - a prtlendar to any merit at all, and, fljll let of a merit, to which I had no claim. Two gentlemen, Mr. Lewis and another who signs himself Q, have, however, given, written anil rmblnhed proof, that they look uirtn me ai hav - in; put forward a claim to the introduction nf thii valuable root, tnougn I una so miiy tposeii of the use to which found xt put in America, and though i had expressly till, that it was cultivated bore under the name of Rvuia Turnip! No : it was not the roof that I expressed my hope t J introduce t it wai the cultivation of it upon a large sealt and a catlle food ; un in this way the root has not yet been introduced, rur. Q says, that Ruta Baga seed was brought into Pennsylvania by Mr. Hordley 25 years ago, and distributed by him. Very likely. Me was a public - spirited man.1 This I kuivw, however, that, last winter. I could find bo Pennsylvania farmer, that knew it trn by name, though two ol the many that I talked with had a few niwera ble roots of It in their gardens. I have pone another way to work. I have toised about hundred Long Island tgion - loadi of this root, and bare sent about 60 waggin - losdt to N. York market, and have soli the whole at an average of haf a dollar a bushel, rather dearer, bushel for bushel, than eons in the tar. And this has been the produce of seven acres of land, the poorest in this neighborhood ! I change two bushels and a half of turnips torsi bushel of an pie in May. I track turnips for com in the ear ' at par. How soon I should, at thi rate, sweep into my pocket the produce of the orchard and the corn - fields ! Can there be any better prool than this, that the ew Hurt of the root ha not yet ; been introduced r If I were a greedy nun, and could have my wish, I should need, in order to make me an enormous fortune, nothiog but to insure the culture of this root to remain, for five Sears, no more extensive than it was in 1817. ' 1 had been a cunning fellow, I should have kept my own counsel, and s "J0?1 swear." I mi;ht have had nearly a mooAjioly tr another year. Thi has not been my toursc. Seeing, in September, how the root nourished, I lent home (for my home Eoglan I is, and always will be,) for somo seed for myself and for tome alto to tell, in order thai others mi - ht share with me In the advantages attending this culture. Thi seed I now sclli - nJ Iho markot, at the anP' - "oa'h "nTA' - wfTirh he said, was of the same tort as thnt which produced my roots. This same man, I am in formed, soul one of my large tunniu, whi':h has served a N ew - York toro - ko icr as a lien for the tale of his Russia turnip seed ! This gentleman's teed may te as go I as mine ; but, at any rate, those facts prove, thut there was sonu thing ex traordinary in my crop, and Uiul the culture bad not been fairly uiiroUticJ into tins country. .Mr. Q begs, that, when I goAowie, at the une of which word be appears uispleareri, I will not, In the account of my "rerWi," put in any claim to this work of introduction. He may be assured, that I shall never :ny of America that which I am not ready to my to hr facf; and, indued, that I will not publish any ttiinj; a', out tlii' country fil a sttddm departure Jihh nut nvrtko previous publirntion here impcnsiblc,) Uul I do not publish bore before my leaving the coun try. Indeed, a part of these " Ti ot e," to ne hi own word, is now in the press at JWir - lVfr, and will bo published in a very fewd iys. In I giving an account ol my nimlo ol cuttur, it truck me, that I ought to begin with an account of the climate aud soil. Thii led me to louk into my daily notes. This looking led me to suppose, that the daily account of year's residence here might be very useful in England. Out of the?e thought a little book was easily engendered ; and, therefore, if Mr. Q has a mind to know what 1 hall say about America after I get home, he may be gratified befure - hand at a very trilling expense. Mr. Q. speaks of the value of the Ruta Riga, . compared with that of the Potutoc, and reminds the public of my having written in disparagement of the lifer, while I was in England. I then spoke of it a compared with wheat, as food for man; arid, though I have been much abused far my I'liiniont, I have nerr been antieered. If Mr. Q. rooolUct what I wrote, let him antieer it; if he do not, he will do well to let that matter rest, liut, as food for cattle, what is the state of the case Few men can raise three hundred bushels of potatoes upon an acre; Mr. Lewis eayi thit be raised, last year, itjthl hundred of Kuta Baga upon three quarters ol an ncre. 1'ht 1'otatoe requires rich land, must be a month longer sis thrrronnd, than the Ruta Baga, costs ten inure a much for seed, requires four times the expence in harvesting and jiresming, and is exposed to many ritk which the Ruta Bag is not. But, the ralvfi the quality; the comparative pnudm ts and efficiency; what are these? We men have our prejudices and our tolitics. Wc are apt to suffer our opinions on one subject to run in and mix themselves with our opinions on other sut - ject. IjcI us, 'heretore, appeal to the C and the hog, who, bei let beiu endowed with the Dot facultiot for judging, luive 00 in terest in deading contrary to truth. Let, theu, any mau take a gnnd Russia Turnip, give it a chop wilb a spado, and tost it down along with a gallon of 1'otatnet before an ox, a hog, or a tbeep, (it rou - t be clean for a sheep,) and if (lie animal touch."

No: I know well, That there it nothing equal to Corn, at cattle food, bushel for bushel; but, surely, I may believe, that crop of Ruta Baga it better than a crop of Corn, if the former will yield eight hundred bushels with lets expence than the latter willy ieldorrjr twAef x My poor harmless iog could not escape Mr. Q. who doe not want any better tort of this ani - , ma! thaa he already see in Pennsylvania. He ho. ihMi. ilui rirtueofeonfenf in a supreme de gree ; for, though I saw hundreds upon hundreds throoghout the finest parts of Pennsylvania, I solemnly declare, that, if I projected a settlement n this country, ana coum gei no u'i"J " home," I would not, " I" hundreds, ex - clmnf nine bora that I now have, and seven out of the nine are but young pigs. Prejudice it often too strong for reason and Justice ; but, it seldom overcome interest, when the latter it very manifest. The bogs of Loos - Island are tcAife; mint are black as a coal i and, nnless I am very mutn deceived, there will not, in few yean, be many white hogt upon thit island. If I should re' main in America till I have any considerable number of pigs, I shall tell them, or some of tnem, if any body choose to buy them, alive, at the market price of the dar - 1 want to potstt. no monopoly, nor any advantage over my neigh' bours. In the little 6ool, aforementioned, I have given an account of these hogs of mine. If I remain here for eizh tor nine months longer, (and I may, perhaps, for a year or more,) I will send one ol them to ew York; and then Mr. Q. mar, if he please, satirfv himself to a ccrlamty, whe ther it be not uossilile to change the breed nf Peuniylvauia lor tomethiug better.

Irfst eveuing, between three and four o'clock, wind from the north east bkw us a storm, accompanied with rain and hail, more teniblc nud desolating iu its (uusagr, than any ever he - lore witnessed in this section of our country. The wind continued to blow from that direction for about Ihe spare of 2(1 iniuutes, when it suddenly hiftedto theuorth - weit, and continued to blow frm that quarter with increased violence for a - bout ten minutes, when the fall of hail suusided into a moderate ra n. Vegetation in general bas received a severe chk ; and tile trees in our vicinity aro literally stript of thi ir foliage. The windows ofourolhYe are completely shattered, and believe those of our neighbors have shared the same fale. The roofs of mauy of the houses iu town were broken through by (he hail stones, which, when they struck the earth, caused the mud to fly ten and fifteen feet. The prayers aud suppbeations of the affrighted to God lor mercy, toe ether with the galloping of horns wlii h broke from the waons and the stand to 'which thry were fastened, seeking in Vain for a . - hc ltrr, rendered tho scene truly awful. Some of the hail stone - , which we measured after the hurricane ceased, were between seven and eight inches in circumference. .Some persons we have seen, who were out iu the storm, were severally brtii:cd and cut, and ono man knocked down with the hail, hut we have as yet heard of none 'rinjr dangerously hsrt. We have not yet learned how far Ihe hail extended, but we under stand that it was most heavy and destructive below us ; some of its stones which remained till this moming were at targe as hen - eggs. At this time, and indeed at any season of the year, such a storm must be seoiii ly felt by all withiu the scope of its ravages.
