An improvement in these useful implements of husbandry has been made by Samuel Churchill, of West Henrietta, N. Y. The nature of the invention consists, in a peculiar manner, of elevating and depressing the frame which holds the shares, and the shares themselves, by means of which they may be made to penetrate the earth the required distance, anil make deep or shallow furrows, as desired, or be raised, and kept entirely from the earth when the implement is being drawn from one locality to another. The mode adopted by Mr. C, to accomplish this object is by means of levers and connecting rods or stirrups attached to the frame, which are under the immediate control of the driver. Measureshave been taken to secure a patent. By the late news from Europe it is supposed that war is not far distant h-itween Russia and Turkey.
