to complv. We have at ditlrent times, exclu
ded from our columns, on account of their
length, Democratic articles. which we were re.
quested to publish, by gentlemen of the highest
standing in our party. We did not even assign
to our friends, our reasons for so doing, as we
were satisfied, that they would not attribute our
conduct to a want of respect for them, or to any
abatement of zeal in the Democratic cause.
In a small weekly paper, such as ours, it is im
possible to publish all the political articles;
which ohr readers may desire. We must ex
clude many, in order to give general inteligence.
We will publish cheerfully, any original Whig
or Democratic article, provided it is decorous
in language, But we are necessarily compelled
to make our own selections. From this rule we
will seldom depart.
We have received the first number of the

From the pamphle't before its, it appears, that
this is a new Medical Institution. Its past ses

THE DzoCRTIc PRESS oF SOUTH CAROL.
ZI.-We copy the subjoined extract from the
inaugural of the Southern Chronicle:
"The opposition in this State have had the
entire control of the political press, and, with
one honorable exception, have only let in light
to the people in such portions as best suited
them, proscribing distitnguished individuals who
would not subscribe to their standard of ortho
doxy, and misrepresenting their acts and opin
ions, without suffiering them to speak for them.
selves through the only medium by which they
could gain access to their fellow citizes To
remedy this evil is another object for which
this press has been established."
Surely the editors of the Chronicle, must
have written the above from lack of information.
They have made a grave and sweeping charge
against nearly all the political press of South
Carolina. We cannot believe that the respect
able gentlnmen who conduct the press in this
State, are afraid to let the opinions of the
Whigs, -and of General Iarri-:on, such as they
are, be known to their readeis. With regard
to ourselves, the charge of pro.scribing any man,
. for mere opinion's sake. is utterly unfounded.
'We have never hesitated to pubhsli the opin.
ions of "distinguished individuals" of the Whig
party of this State, when the slightest intimation
was given us, that they desired us to do so.
Urasolicited, we have spread before our readers,

of r'harleston, the resolutions of the Hamburg
neetitig at Hamburg, and other things emanat

Hay MaKINo.-Philosophy teaches.
nnd many years experien-e bhas confirmed
us in the correctness of'her teiachitngs, that
notl only clover, but all hay ini which clo
ver, or any of the succutlent gr-asses, are
constituents should be cured in small grass
cocks, not rolled, but formed of layers
with the fork. The ohjections to the old
modte of curitng wholly in the sun, are. in
the first place, that the leaves and fiter
parts of grasses, dry, ctrtumble, and are lost
ere the stemns andI succulent portions are
lit to carry tn the barn. In the secotid
place, that ani intense hot sun is hurt ful to
the bay. that cnred in the shade being
always the most fragrant atnd nutritious
Third-it is liable to be seriouisly injurPed
by the dew, sudden showers, or coitntinued
rains. And fourth, it demands more labor
thain the new mode. We will briefly state
our method of management, wvhich experi
emince has induneed us somewhat to vary.
Our erass is heavy. averagingt, perhaps,
2 1 2tous to the aere, and abound< more or
leas in clover. Where this pireponderates,
or is in any considerable proportion, tWe
endeavor to cut whben the clover has just
passed the full bloom. The grass is of
course succulent and juicy. and the swaths
heavy. That wich is cut in the fore pat
ofu he day, if the weather bids fair, is turned
over in swath, but not spread or tenaded,
after three or four o'clock in order that
the wilted paort ion may be covered from the
dew. If rain is apprehended, it is ptit into
grass cocks, instead of being turded in the
swath. The grass which is mown in the
afternoon is put into cocks the followinig
afternoon, having been turited in the swath
at ten or eleven, if time will permit, or if
the grass is very heavy or wet. We never
spreast from the swath, unlegg rain fallsg
before it is cocked ; and in thIs case it is
mtade into cocks as soon as the water is
exhaled, and thegrass wvited. We prefer
to leave the cocks undlieattrbpd two nights
and one day anti utntil a fair day, in which
the eurmtg process maty be completed, atnd
the hay housed. Ii olay stand a week in
cocks without receivirng any itnjury, if they
are properly made. In the finishilng pio.
cess, the cocks are opened in the tmorninig,
say at nine or ten, the hay shaken up, that
the moistture, which is now pritncipally
tupon the exterior of the grass, may pass
freely off-it is turned at eleven to two,
and at two to four it is completely cured,
and fit to he taken to the barn. Cured in
,this way scarcely a leaf is wasted, and the
hay has a freshness, fragiance and flue
olartmuuchtohadesired. Thnbeei tea-..
ten per cent gained in quantity, and as
much in quality.
The practice of the best English, Flem
iah and French farmers, says Deane, is to
expose theif hay as little as possible to the
sun. It is carried In dry, but it preserves
its green color; and you see hay two or
three years old- in tcit inarket, of so
bright a green color, that we should scarce
ly conceive it ho be cured ; yet they are in
the practice of preserving it for years.
and value it more for its age. The cock
excludes it from the sun and preserves its
gieenness,- and if a slight fernentation
takes place there, the hay seldom heats,
and never spoils ilt the mnow or stack. It
is the best mode to make good hay.
A Bee.-Our neighbnr of the Planter,.
has been boasting of a big Beet, but we
have now on our table a Beet, that heats
his beot. It was raised in Dr. Parker's
Garden, with just comiton culture. antd is
not fully grown. It measures 161 inches
in length. 214 inches in circumference, and
weiehs 10 pounds. The Doctor has some
which he thinks will be considerably lar
ger than this when grown.-Temp'erance
The Crops of Texas.-A late number
of the Austin Gazette says: "that the far
mers on the Colorada, in the neighbrhootd
of Bastrop, are willing to contract for the
sale of their crops of corn. at the rate of
fifty cents par money, per bushel. The
yield of the early crops on the Colorada
will this year he itmmetise."
. Making Butter.-Every farnier who
makes his own butter, will be glad to learn
how to make the most from tnilk, at the
same time produce an article of good
quality. Putting a pint of cold water du
ring the mummer months into each pan of
milk, when strained from the cow will
materially aid these desirable objects.
The milk will not sour as quick, nud the
cream will rise more perfectly. The ra
son why butter made in summer becomes
rancid so soon, is owing to the imperfect
manner in which the milk frequently
soured before churning, is separted from
the butter. Retarding the souring of the
milk by the application of cold water, obvi
ales this difficulty.-Gennessee Farmer.
Largest iron Bridge.-The largest Iroti
Bridge inithe world is in Chiia, near King
tong, where it forms a perfect road from
the top of one immense mountain to the
other. It is fortmed ol'chains, twenty-one
in number, and bound together by other
cross chains. This bridge is more than
150 years old. and yet the Chinese are
considered fools by loireign barbarians.
The following story is told to frighten
young bachelors-there is not a word of
truth in it:
"Tie widow of Elphesus bedlewed the
grave of her spouse with one eye. while
she sqtinted love to a )oung soldier with,
"True love never did ran smooth." as the
lover said ven the father of his beloved set the
dogs after hitr.
