MODE OF CULTIVATING TOBA9
CO IN THE ISLAND OP CUBA.
Your nurseries are the first to be atten
dad to, in your preparation for a crop, by
selectitig at the proper season a rih tole.
rably moist piece of new ground, and-pre
pare it by burning ii off very clean, and
breaking it up. The seed is t-hen to be
sown broad cast upon it, and when they
*ire up. they are to be overlooked daily, to
see that the cut-worm does not commit
ravages aitog the young plants; and as
fast as the plants arrive at a proper size,
they are to ie transferred to the Tobacco.
field, to make room for the smaller plants
of the nursery. As casualties frequently
arise tv destroy some of the nurseries, it is
necessary to guard against a probability of
not having a suffcienj number of plants,
by making three or four nurseries, at an
interval of one or two weeki each. Much
attention sh..uld he observed to keep both
our nurseries and flelds very clean, par
ticularly of grass. and for tflat reason new
lands are preferred for both. In Cuba
they plant on.an even surface, and dis
Iurb it as little as possible with the hoe,
only picking out the grass or weeds which
spring up. The plants, when transferred
to the field. are to be planted in squares.
at about rrom two to three feet apart.
according to the strength of the land. The
high land-, in Cuba are such as produce the
quality of Tobacco. both as to strength
and color, that suits the America market
best, and such lands correspond nearest to
our high hammocks. The greatest ene
my to the plants, both ini the nursery and
in the fields, (while small.) is the cut-worm
which has to be looked after early every
morning, and wherever they have plants,
they are to be found and killed, either on
ihe plant, or on the ground near it. When
the plants gets to be larger, then the green
Tobacco worm is to be constantly guar
ded against, atd the suckers also continu
ally broken off'as fast as they appear, and
when tite tobacco isjudged to be of a suffi
cient height, it is to be topped and allowed
to mature for etting. The time of matu
rity is ascertained by tle leaves changing
gradually their color, beginning at the
bottom leaves, from their deep green.
growing color, to a yellowish green; hut
if this is not sufficiently obvious, and you
deem your Tobacco ripe, you may test
it by crushing together the tip of any of
the tpper leaves, which, if it snaps. is a
sign of its being ripe, but on the contrary,
if it does not snap, it is not fully matured.
When ripe for the knife it is cut down
near the ground, leaving two suckers.
w*hich have been spared a week or two
prior, ready to grow up and produce a se
cond crop and also a third crop may he
realized in the same manner. The To
bacco is to be conveyed carefully in wide
ilhmmgs of cowhide to the house, to be hung
tip; a shed is preferred. with free space for
ventilation beneath. and after tying the
planti together, two to each string. and
leaving space enough between them to in
sert a wooden peg, you hang them up,
by intruding them above each rafter up to
the ridge of the house, being cameful not to
hang them so near that they will touch or
crowd each other in drying, or your To.
bacco will mould. Also when the weath
er is moist, you musL make small fires
enough under it, to keel) out the mbisture,
but enongh to heat your Tobacco. When
the leaves are perfectly dry, the whole are
to be taken down. and placed in a press
for a few hours, the object of which is. if
the Tobacco is too dry to strip off without
breaking the leaves, that they may become
soft and pliable, but great care must be
taken that it does not heat, and it must
be strictly examined, by inserting thte had
to ascertain that it becomes not too not.
The press is maude by put ting rails or poles
croswise of each other, in form of a rack.
anod placing cow-hides onder, over and
around the Tobacco, and placitng upotn it
something somewhat weighty. It is then
to be stripped leaf by leaf from the stock,
and being selected, the wrappers from the
fillers, to be tied at the butts, and prepared
for market. It is sometimes usual'- to pot
it again in press after being stripped.

lish in the Southern Cultivator, the ana
lysis of corn, of wheat, of rye, of outs, of
cotton, also the analysis of a perfect soil,
it seems to me something would be koo:n
about the means necessary to itmprove
land, and to make a good crop. Corn is
indispensable to the welfare of my family.
If I know how to supply the deficiencies
of my soil, and to feed my corn with the
(ood best adopted to its use, with the bles
sings of heaven, I think a large crop would
be as certain'as two and one jnake three.
This principle will apply to all crops. A

.The following description of a valuable
improvemet, we copy from the R.deigh,
C. Register :
i" The notice, ih this paper, of a new
Pfatent, for so altering the Stories of an or
d.inary Grist Mill, as to grind up Corn,
Cob and Shuck entire, while at the same
time increased power is given in the grind
itg of Meal..ought to attract the notice of
every Miller and large Planter in the State.
It. has been tried on the Mill of William
Boylan, Esq in this vicinity, and the re
sults are almost incredible to a person who
has not witnessed them. A half buihel of
Corn, with the Shuek on, was reduced in
50 seconds to a pow'der nearly resembling
verv coarse Meal. This mill, an ordinary
one, will grind 437 bushels of this feed in
one day. -Before the improvemn'et was
applied, it took the Mill 6 minutes to grind
Mushel of Meal-now, it grinds the same
quantity in less than two. Of one thing
welare confident-the more this improve
ment is examined, the mnore popular it
will become. The right for this State, it
will be-seen, is now in the hatids of Maj.
William F. Collins, of this City, whose
go --head-itiveness will soon make its ad
vaItages known throughout t he old North."
*,Tbacco Growing in Mississippi.-We
A he-follding in the Vicksburg Whig,
of the 7th inst :
. For the information of our planting
friends, we would state that a genrleman
in Madison Parish. La., atiout eight nilet
from this city, tried an experiment of rais
ing tobacco on his farm last year ; the
seed was from Ilavana, and the product
was sold to Mr. )ays. a tobacconist in this
city, for fifteen dollars per hundred, who
says it will bring twentv-five dollars per
hundred, in New Orleans. Hio opinion is,
that nothing bt age.is wanting to make it
equal to the best I-lavana, which sells ini
New Orleans 'at $60 per hundred. He
tmade it into segars, .and sold thett to a
merchant of this city at the rate of $30 per
thousand. The land produced at the rate
of from 1000 to 1900 pounds per acre.
The Black Pea.-Froi experiment we
are fully satisfied it is the interest of every
farmer to raise the black pen for his stork.
Nothing is better for hogs cattle and hor
ses, and they can he raised with corn.
without mnuch labor, and the groutid will
be materially benefited by the decay of
the vines, and the excrements of stck
while consuming the peas. We think the
black pea preferable to others on acconut
of the 'act that it is not so liable to rol as
the crowder. or any other kind we have
tried. Many farmers suppose, from their
frequent failures, that the pea cannot be
profitably raised with corn, but the mis
take originates from the practice of plan
ting the pea too late. If they are plantedl
when the corn is six inches high and kept
ilean, it is our opinion on most lands.th.e
paea crop will he wvorthi as much as the

the majority for a shorter period. They

the tear of sympathy and the heart that

iebg- when a Boy.-Liebig was distin.
guished at school as a . bobby,' the only
talent ~then cultivated in German. schools
being verbal memory. On one occasion,
being sneeringly asked by the .master,.
what lie proposed to become, since hewas
so bad a scholar, and answeiing that lie
would be a chemist, the whole school burst
into a laugh of derision Not 'long ago
Liebig saw his old ichool mastei, who
feelingly lamented his own former blind
neas. The only boy in- the same school
who ever disputed with Liebig the station
or ' hooby,' was oneWho never could learn
his lesson by heart, but was continually
composing music, and writing it down by
stealth. in scbool. The same individual
I Liebig lately found at Vienna, distinguish.
I ed as a composer and conductor of the im.
perial Opera house. I think his name is
Reuling. It is to be hoped that a more
raiional system or school instruction is
gaining ground. Can any thing be more
absurd or detestable than a system which
made Walter Scott, and Justus Liebig
'boobies' at school, and so effectually
concealed their natural talents, that for ex
ample. Liebig was often lectured before
the whole school on his being sure to cause
misery and broken hearts to his parents,
while he was all the time conscious, as
the above anecdote proves of the posseE.
sion of talents similar in kind to those he
has since displayed.-Prenologicia Jour
