From the Colunbus Sentincl.
Bright days of my youth,
I think'ofyoi still,
When in boyhood's glad time,
I roamed oer each hill;
Or chased the fleet Buck,
As he swiftly ran:
Or cross'd the 1right waters
Of my okvn native Dan.
I cherish the fond hope,
That yet I may see
The friends of my youth,
Who have loved thee like me;
That again I may wander
From the dull.haunts of man,
Alone on the banks
Of my own native Dan.
I left thee in peace,
In the spring tide of life;
have seen nothing since
But sorrow and strife
Oh! soon come the day,
When again I shall stand
On the beautiful banks
Ofrmy own native Dan.
I'll hail thee with joy,
And leave thee no more;
And live as I did,
When I l'new thee before
And when rigid death,
My life shall command,
I'll sleep on the banks
Of my own native Dan.
From ic Augusta Constitutionalist.
I am much gratified, as I presume
many of your readers are, with the inter
est you have always exhibited in ihe cause
of agriculture. If a plain man may ex
press a plain opinion, a more frequent ref
erence to the subject. on the part of the
newspaper press generally, would be in
finitely more benefit to the c mmunity
than one-half ihe political discussions with
which it is filled, ad nauseam; The col
uons of no paper can be better employed
than in spreading agriculturalinformation.
The silk culture now appears to employ
all tongues and all pens-I hope it may
prove to have employed profitably allhands;
but let us not forget that noble production
which has hitherto been our main stay;
which, according to Arthur Youna, is per
haps" the most important plant that can
be introduced into the agriculture of -any
country whose climato will suit it,"-"a
treasure, with wheat, yielding the most
food that is possible to the drawn from the
land"I mean Indian Corn. It is and must
continue to be the most useful anti valua
ble of the products of our farms and planta
tions. producing, as it does, rood for man
and beast, of the most nutricious and sub
stautial quality; every part of it, from the
tassel at the top to the remotest fibre of
its roots being of service; furnishing the
most productive crop in a eood season, and
a better chance of return for labor in a
bad one,-more surely rewarding the in
dustrious husbandman in any season, and
withholding it benefits only from tite sloth
ful who neglect it. Any attempt to im
prove the quality or increase the quantity
of this admirable grain must lie considered
cotmtendlable, and its succ'ess a suhject o~f
gratulation to all interested itn the welfare
of agriculture,--and who is not? [t is.
therefore, with pleasure I have marked the
progress of ihe Baden Corn, as frequently
noted in your columns and those of other
publications.-Thtis flne variety of ouar na
tive maize, it is well known, is the rewvard
of more than twenty years of perseverance
on the part of the individual whose narne
it bears, a~farmer of Maryland, who has
succeeded in its improvement by selectinig
every season the best ears fromt the stalks
producing the largest nuntber. It has not
answered so well in the northern States
wbere the frost which is apt to cheek its
growth prematurely,com pels the agrien Itu
rist so select such varieties as com. to the
earliest maturity. Here thtis precaution is
not necessary.-Planted in March it comes
to maturity in Augnst or early in Septem
ber, andi, consequently. fins time for its
fill developement. A considerable quans
* tity was introduced into this State last
season, but the opinions of it< cultivators,
I have understood, are various. It has
* been urged by some that it is inferior to
*the'Corn usually cultivated in this pat
of the country because the ears are
smaller.. This would hie :: valid objection
certainly, were we to buy corn by the
- dozen; butt as we huy and sell this cotmmo
dity by the -barrel or bushel, the measure
tobthe acre, and weight of a given quantity,
would appear to be the true test. No one

*- The~last was a most unpropitious season,
the'heat and drought havintg nearly ruined
the corn crop. The coming season may
be a better one,~ abd we shall have the op
portnity to-plant seed grown on our own
soil. Formynself I am perreetly satisfied
with the Baden-Corn. The ears eje un
,ttnbiodly srnaller than the g-rottad seed
iere cultivated, but they are far more
numerous, and I have fquod the grain
very plump, handsome, hdavy and white,
making excellent flour, and homony al
most equal to flint corn. I am much
pleaed with, it and shall continue its cul
tivation in my small way.
Having thus given you my opinion of
the.Baden Corn, allow me to add a word
or two touching the subject of farming
generally. We possess soil which is not
appreciated, but in which the culture of
corn or any thing else cannot be profita
ble under the system, or rather want of
system now pursued The maxim can
not be doubled that -manure is the beasis
of all good husbandry." To take every
thing front the earth and return nothing
to it, is folly in the extreme; for how can
we expect vegetable any more than ani
mal lire to flourish without sustenance?
Our new grounds are exhausted or their
decaying vegetable matter, the natural
food of plants, in at most two or three
years, and we must supply its place if
we expect to reap a return for our labor,
and a return I ama confident we may ex
pect if we do. Let our farmers then care

triously manufacture.and apply composts
from materials furnished by the hand of
nature in every field and branch and bye

THE NEW ART; OR, "TIlE PENCIL
There has been published an account
from a French paper of Lwonderful dis
covery made recently bfM I. Daguerre
that of transferring the picture of any ob
ject to paper, by the action of the solar
light acting by means of the camera ob
scura; which paper, being prepared and
endowed with certain chemical properties,
will retain the impression for an iudefinite
length of time; and thus a perfect copy
from Nature may. be prodiced. This
discovery, it is obvious, will be of the
greatest advantage to the arts: and, unless
the accounts which we have received from
abroad are grossly exaggerated, it has al
ready been brought to very great perfec
The London Literary Gazette of 2d
February contains a long and very inter
esting account of a similar discovery, which
has reccutly been made in England by
H. Fox Talbot, a gentleman of great
scientific acquirements. It appears that
Mr. Talbot has for some years devoted
much labor and atttenttion to the perfection
of this invention, and having brought it to
a i)oiut deserving the notice of the scien
tihc world, and while actuaily engaged in
drawing up an account of it to be presen
ted to the Royal Society, the same inven
tion has been announced byM.Daguerre in
France! Who is entitled to the honor of
the original dliscovery,is a grave question to
be settled by scientific men.
Mr. Talbot has pruduceed a numiber of
exquisite speciments, which mtark his pro
gr'ess and demonstrate his success-from
which it appears that there is a very con
sierable ditference between rte materials
employed by Mr. Talbot, the means used,
attd the results obtained, and those of M.
Dagtterrc. At the Royal institution, a
variety of specimens were exhibited by
Mr. T'albot, which dilfered fromt those of
M. Daguerre, especially in this, that Mr.
Talbot reverses the natural effect-repse
seting dark objects light and ligh t objects
dark. Diferent preparations of silver are
supposed to be tused to etfect this singular
result; anil Mr. Talbot has sueCeeded ad
mirably in devising a method of fixing his
drawings so that the sun can affect or alter
them no more. lie copies from engra
vings, by first getting them with the lights
and shades revemsed, andh then again copy
ng from the reversed impression.
Mr. Talbot, in a letter wvhich is publish
ed itn the Literary Gazette. after speaking
af various instruments which have beetn
devised at vatriotus times to airidge th'e Ila
bor of the at-tist in copying natural objects,
and showing that, after all, nll that they
can do is to guide his eye and correct his
judgment, but that they do not work for
him, goes on to say: "Fromn all these pri
or ones, the present tnventiotn diff'ers total
ly in this respect, viz, that by means of
this contrivance, it is not the artist who
makes the picture, but the picture : es
itsell! All that the artist does, is Jo dis
pose of the apparatus before toe object
whose image he reqluires; he then leaves it
for a ertain length of tim~e, at the end of
which he returns, takes out his picture and
finds it finished! The agent in this opera
tion is solar light, whbich being thrown by
a lens on a sheet of prepared paper, stamps
up itihe image of the object, whatever
that may chance to be, that is placed be
fore it." -
Again, Mr. Talbot qgys, in another part
of his communieation, "No matter whmeth
er the subject be large or small, simple or
compound; whether the flower-branch you
wish to' copy contains one flower or a
thousand, you set the instrument in action,
the allotted time elapses, anid you fitnd the
picture finished in every point, and in every
In a paper relating to the transactions of
(h Royal Society it is stated that pictures
which Mr. Talbot has had in his possession
for years are now as vivid as whena they
were first produced. The image obtained
is white; but the groutnd is beautifully col
red, and readily .obtainable, either sky
blue, yellow. rose-color, or black-green
is excluded. .Objects the most minute
are obtained-the delineations of the
lanes of plins, the mesr mint and
iny bivalve calyx-nay. even a s-aow,
is followed by the spell of the inventor.
and remains perfect and permanent long
after it-has been given back to the sun
beam which produced it-in short, the
picture is "ended as soon as begun."
It appears that Sir Humphrey Davy
made sone unsuccessful attempts to bring
about this great result, but fortune did not
smile upon his undertaking. and ie aban
doned it. By laying the nitrate of silver
on paper, he succeeded. by means of the
camera obscura and the solar rays, in
obtaining perfect impressions of any object
but on exposure to the light they faded,
and after a while totally disappeared.
The French call this instrument by the
name of its inventor, the Dagueroscope.
It is also called, in poetical language, the
Pencil of Nature. Mr. Talbot calls the
process the art of Photegenic Drawing.
But, whatever it may be called, it is cer
tainly one of the most wonderful inventions
of the age. Henceforward, travellers who
have never taken lessons in drawing may
bring home the most finished and accurate
sketches. They may even multiply them
on the spot to an indefinite extent. Hence
forward, every man may be his own

When lie left the turf, he was rearded onie o
the best three-mile horses in the State, and twc
miles unequalled, and although he has rm
many hard races, lie never broke down, an.
