The Plantation of lion- It. C. Wyllie
The soil is unsurpassed in richness from the accu- jjj
mutated washing? of the mountains and the mould 1
cf perhaps centuries of luxuriant vegetation. By f
judicious management such a soil can never become j
exhausted. Mr. McGregor euters upoo his herculean U
task to regenerate this large plantation with aa energy D
that is fully cceded
and those sound scientific principles of agriculture
that cannot fail of the highest results. It was with
ua feigned pleasure that I perceived the introduction
of the system of making use of the trash for fertili
zing the soil by underplougbing, and it were well for
our planters individually, and for. the country at
large, if our sugar planters would follow this method,
to often advocated and so ably argued by the highest
standard-bearers of agricultural science. Bousin- R

Thousands of acres of the most fertile soils, hundreds It
of once rich plantations in the entire range of the 5j
South of the Unite-i States of America, have been ex- U
hausted and sunk into barren wastes by injudicious 'H
firming. There are few countries where a judicious

of land is still in its pristine youth. Here we are
confined to a certain extent of arable land, whose
boundaries may easily be estimated and measured by
chain and taoeline. If we exhaust our fertile soils V
ly following in the track of so many who style
themselves firmers, but in reality are the most wanton
spendthrifts, we rob our children and coming gene
rations of a wealth which a bountiful Providence
lestowed cu us to keep for them, we leave to them
an inheritance of poverty and prison tasks, by leav
ing to them an exhausted soil, worn out acres and
do!ate homesteads. This is a subject th U pleads
not only to the head and heart of our intelligent
nlanter for consideration, but should as well receive 12
the attention of our legislature, if ever in that body i
a spirit of wisdom and patriotism should happen to
eater. The product of oar sugar lands far surpasses

If the amount of those elements taken from one acre
of cane land in Florida is already to large, what
mast it not be ou our lands, where cane yields so
enormously, and the most ignorant, by looking at H
those reliable data, cannot wonder at it when be sees
the richest soils becoming exhausted by a wanton t
waste of the most essential elements for the produc- H
profitable plan to keep S
irstome to be inlet- H
tioo of good crops. The most
op and to enrich the soil appears
ting the plough follow the cane-cutters as close as
possible, to open a deep and wide furrow for the recep-

me of the total absence on our plantations of one of
the most useful implements, and one that would be
highly prized by our intelligent planters, if once put
in uie, I mean a double mould Hall plough. Such
a plough would not only open a broad and deep fur
row fr the reception of trash, &c, but it would be

that I have seen too little attention paid to this, one
of the most beneficial operations of farming, judicial
ditching. The expenses and the labor in following
the above method would not be augmented. It would
be merely a shifting of the time cf its performances;
but the advantage derived from ploughiug under the
leaves and tops and trash in as green a state as possi
ble, is obvious from the fact that nearly three
fourths of the whole organic matter in this manner
buried into the ground has been derived from the i
air, that by ploughing in the green matter the natu
ril decay is much accelerated and ammonia and
nitric acid are to a great extent produced in the soil, '
and that the escape of the gases engendered by decay, '
is a powerful assistant to render the soil porous and J
ready to receive and convey the required nourish
ment to the roots. When it is considered that the
greea leaves absorb carbon i; acid from the air and
discharge the oxygen for the purpose of appropri
ating tue carbon, and that sugar contains 42 per
cent, of carbon, no one can doubt the advantage to
generate this carbon witbin reach of the roots to be
absorbed by them, either in a liquid state or in the
form of carbonic acid, and also that the tender shoots
of the rattoons will have the g ises evaporating from
the decaying matter ready and in abundance near
their thousands of pores to receive their food, their
existence, their vigor to rais that solid pyramid,
the sazar stock, that shall yield its generous juice for
the benefit of the planter, the laborer and the mil
lions of consumers.
But I fear that I am becoming rather prolix in
remarks that may be little interesting to your read
er.), and I perceive from the length of my manu
r;pt the necessity to move on, if I intend to leave
Kauai this year. The plantation above the mill is
dividel by the river, the greater part lying on the
right bank. What pleases the beholder so much is
the perfect level cf the whole plantation, a level so
perfect that the eye at least cannot perceive any

animal power and will permit the laying down of I
wooden railroad tracks, that will not only save labor,
eattie, carts anl time, but a large amount ol expenses.
The river being the main thoroughfare and road
toward the mill, to which the cane is transported in
numeroui scows, atford at the same time the greater
facility for a perfect system of ditching, by which
the crops cannot fail to be greatly augmented. The n
cipaoiiities or tne plantation are so great, mat 1
would not venture to make an estimate. I should
ay that before long a thousand acres will bear lux
uriant cane. With a large area of land, a soil un
surpassed, a level facilitating labor, perfect drainage,
a climate the most genial to ripen cane within a
year, sheltered from every rude blast, the plantation
of Hon. R. C. Wyllie is. to judge from my experience
iu many lands, without a rival. During my stay
there I was favored with most pleasant weather, and
it was on a beautiful morning, when the dew,
pvkled like glittering diamonds in the rays of the
au jast rising over tne nilltops, that 1 took my
leave from beautiful Hanilei and its kind inmates, N
mounting nigber and nigher alonz the windinc road, f
t"l at last the crest of the mountain was gained. 1
"a my tnp to Ko'.oa I enjoyed the society of a most
P easant comp tenon de voyage in the person of the S
accomplished engineer of Prtnceville, Mr. Webster K
&al the large experience of this gentleman on sugar fj
states in other countries made his society valuable
ni instructive to me. We took a last and a long
view over the gorgeous scenery of the valley and :
commenced our journey up bill and down hill, and p
P and down innumerable times. What a broken
coantry this part of Kaaai is ! The aoil almost uni- I

surface oil and nioulJ. countless little rilld and
mountain streams gush through the gullies, and the
water so clear, so cool and crystal like, foaming over
rocks or rippling over pebbles, invites the traveler to
many & bait to take a drink, not for the Bake of
slaking thirst tut as a luxury. Our horses even
appeared to be under the same influence. At every
stream they were beouing loeir nec&s to lake a swal
low of the "liquid crystal."
The roid leads for several miles through open
groves of pandnus. Very few trees of ether growth
except the kukui are xuet with. The pandanus
where so plentiful, lends no beauty to the scenery,
but rather gives to the country an aspect t-f dreari
ness. Od our left we Lad at intervals a view of the
R sea, the deep blue ocean. A few hours ride brought

From Snn Domingo.
New York, November 1. The following is addi
tional news by the Santiago : On the 4h of October
the Spanish garrison was reduced to 1.000 by the de
parture of the greater part from San Domingo. The
same day 600 Spaniards sallied out from the fott,
and after a s evere fight drove the Dominicans from
the town. The Spaniards were assisted by the guns
of the fort, which set fire to the town. The fire con
tinued till the depirture of the S-tnliago, destroy inc.
amongst other valuable stores, those of a considerable
body of foreign merchants. In fact the whole town,
except the Wesleyan Mission House and a row of
small building?, was burned, and it was believed
that the rett of the town would be destroyed. The loss
by the two fires, at Santiago aud Port nu Piatt, will
reach 5,000,000. The whole population of the lat
ter place bad fled to foreign cou:. tries, and thou
sands had gone to the neighboring island. Some of
the principal merchants were leaving for the United
States. None saved aught but their lives. Another
accouut. from the Turk's Island Standard says : In
tue bltIe ,be Spaniards were badly beaten and
1 ft. fl. . . . 1 r . ! . 1. 1 . m IfI
driven back to the fort with loss of 450 men. A
brisk fire from the fort compelled the Dominicans to
leave the town. But few American or British offi
cial residences remain. The Catholic churches were
among the houses burned. The Spanish soldiers were
seen going about with firebrands in their bands when
the fight was progressing. Report said that the Span
iards would soou evacuate the fort as they cannot re
tain it against the Dominicans, who number 4,003 in
the neighborhood. Report also says that the wl ile
south side of the island is an actual rebellion, ami
that the Dominicans, who are reported to have joined
Santa Anna, had deserted him. The American,
British and other Consuls bad arrived at Grand
Itussia and Poland.
The reply of Prince Gortschakoff to the French
and Austrian notes on the Polish question has been
published, together with accompanying memoranda.
These replies manifest the same firm tone as that
addressed to England. Relative to the allusion made
by M. Drouyn de Lhuys to the Western Provinces of
Russia, as participating in the international stipula
tions which settled in 1815 the destiny of Warsaw,
Prince Gortschakolf maintains that the Imperial
Cabinet cannot admit that point of view, even in the
most restricted mauner. Russia will not admit the
right of Europe to interfere iu her internal allairs.
It is said that Count Rechberg. the Austrian min
ister, has advised that no respouse be made to Prince
Gortschakotl's dispatch, but that the three great
Powers now await further action on the part of the
Russian Government toward the Poles.
The Paris .Moniteur has reproduced the letter from
Warsaw of Aug. 15, aldiessed by the Polish
National Government to Prince Czartovifky, claim
ing beliiyrerant rights, and its publication in the
French official organ is considered by Euglish and
continental journals as equivalent to an unofficial
recognition by Napoleon ot the Polish National Gov
ernment. Russia was actively engaged in warlike
preparations. The Russian Emperor, in a speech,
had promised reforms and extended privileges.
Eleven iron plated gunboats, with turrets, will be

The Revolt in Hragg's Army.
New Yore, October 20. A Chattanooga letter to

E intelligent and apparently honest, told a tale which is
cheering and inspiring to all good Union men, and
which corroborates previous information. He says a
Kfull brigade of Tennesseeans, with their general at
their head, attempted to come through to our lines
in a body one day last week, and that one division cf
Kstaunch rebels was called out to prevent them. A
fffight of the most sanguinary caaracter ensued, in
H which artillery and musketry, were used for three or
lour nours, resulting in toe overpowering 01 me dis
contented Tennesseeans, after some bOO had been
slaughtered on both bides. The souud of cannon was
jg distinctly heard in our camps at the time, but nobody
N could explain the phenomenon of a brisk fire so close
Sto the enemy's rear. The officer says the matter was
hu;bed up, and has since been kept so quiet that the
pjextreuie of Bragg's army know nothing definite about
lit. Bragg's distrust of bis Tennessee and Georgia
