FARM MACHINERy.-The Portable Farm-Produce Mill, from Mr. Crosskill, of Beverley, which was announced last week to be tried at Canterbury, on Saturday last, was worked in a field near the Cattle Market, in the presence of many of the leading agriculturists in the neighbourhood. The experiment was very satisfactory it ground oats and beans, and to show what it waft capable of doing, flint stones were ground to fine powder, by putting different kinds of grinding plates in, an operation which was attested in about fifteen minutes; and from which it appears that any substance can be ground, from flint stones to bartey meal. The mill was driven by the portable steam engine belonging to Mr. Nume. of Selling, who, we are informed, has purchased the mill, and to whose spirit and enterprise, the farmers of this neighbourhood owe this opportunity of seeing the merits of this useful machine fairly attested. At a private trial at Mr Neame's farm on Friday, at Selling, the mill crushed oats at the rate of 30 bushels per hour, and split beans at the rate of 60 bushels per hour, and ground barley to fine meal at the rate of 8 bushels per hour, besides grinding bones, and crushing flint stones, bricks, etc.
