Ihe Carolinas and the Northwest.
A hilst a continual stream of immigration '
is pminng into the Xorthwest, the equally

both by Europeans and Xorthem men. ? This

' It is said that fitrurcs do not He. At anv
rate we presume that official intelligence
carefully collected by the agents of the gov
ernment is reliable. From an examination
of the statistical tables embodied in the Re
port of the Commissioner of Agriculture for
1809, we are satisfied that "the resources of
our section as an agricultural region are not
fully understood. . To illustrate .what we
mean we projose now to make a comparison
between the Carolinas and three Xorth west
ern States lying in a body together, viz :
Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Taking
the articles of corn, wheat, rye, oats, barley,
buckwheat, potatoes,-tobacco and hay as a
basis of comparison, we have the following
statement of the value per acre of the pro
ductions in the States mentioned for the
Average value per acre.
Xorth Carolina, - 15.75
South Carolina, , - 10.07
Wisconsin, - - 13.71
Minnesota, - - 13.02
Iowa,. - - - 13.04
That the correctness of this result may not
.be doubted we give more in detail the value
per acre of some of the principal crops in the
Corn. Wheat Oats. Potatoes. I lay.

Look at the column headed ''Wheat," and
note the figures. One acre of Carolina wheat
was worth in 1809, (averaging the two
States) 1 3.32, whilst an average acre in the
three Xorth western States was worth S.fl2
a difference in favor of the former of fifty
But the reader must observe that the
above comparison has regard to those pro
ductions of the farm to which the Xorthwest
is peculiarly adapted. If we bring the to
bacco of Xorth C arolina into the comparison
we find its average value per acre to be
$09.59, and we state it as a fact which can
not be denied that one-half of the States of
Xorth and South Carolina, and especially
the former are adapted to tobacco culture.
Again the cotton crop is not mentioned in
tlie comparison. The average production of
the Carolinas in cotton the past year is esti
mated as follows by the Department.
Carolina 175 lbs. lint cotton per acre. South
Carolina at 170 lbs. per acre. Estimating
mis to oe worm aoout 14 cents per lo., we
have as the result an average acre of Caro
lina cotton 24.15. There are no crops in
the Xorth with which we can fairly compare
tlie tooacco ami cotton crops. c nave
thought it best, however, not to omit these
as they are really two of the most important
crops. It costs but little more to cultivate
an acre of cotton in the Caroliuas than an
acre of corn. The difference in the value is j
several dollars in favor of the cotton. This, i
however would be .-ibsorbed in tl vth-tisks
of picking and the cost of fertilizers, so that j

Isaiah wrote this long before the Star of
IJethlehem arose. The light of Jesus had u
not beamed upon the world. What would
Isaiah say now ? The professed daughters ,
of our Zion are 'haughty taken up with' -'tinkling'

all tlie ages of the world; has fashion excr-
I cised such unlimited sway. Tlie hired. 'ser

worn. The hat is a perfect tower, without ''-

The ladies heads remind one of Xut
Cracker,' he being nearly all head. And
where is the taste in the present style of ;-4
dress? A fashionably dressed lady looks
as if she had passed by a mantua-maker ;
milliner's sliop, ami the contents had been T
hurled at her without regard to order. . V, '
young , minister recently, in speaking of i
fashions, said:. 'It is strange what an
amount of labor, time and money the ladies -expend
to disfigure themselves.' The gaudi
ness of dress at the present day must be -1
truly appalling to men who are trying to .
recover lrom war embarrassments. J
It is not strange that men who have wives .'
and daughters to dress get w rinkled ,aud '
gray so early. Fashion is a cruel mistress, i ,
and her plow makes ugly furrows on tho
human lace. It is not strange that youiijj '
men shrink from marriage. Xor is it
strange that the missionary cause should ,
languish. Xo wonder that churches and J
parsonages are not built and repaired. It .
is not astonishing that the cause of Christ is ; '
not better supported. The people are poor I ! '
Churches were destroyed, iu time of the late
war much, an innumerable amount of other
property was also destroyed, and the South
ern warrior's independence was destroyed!

of soul as well as of pocket? Ye cannot

to devote to Cod, when it is all given to

the brain is planing them! When a collec
