THE ASS AN THE FLUTE.
You must know that this ditty,
This little romance,
Be it dull, be It wity,
Arose from mere chance.
Near a certain inelosure,
Not far from my manse,
An ass, with composure,
Was passing by chance.
As he went along prying,
With sober advance,
. A-shepherd's flute lying,
He found there by chance.
Our ameteur started
And eyed it askance,
Drew nearer, and snorted
Upon it by chance.
The breath of the brute, Sir,
Drew music for once;
It entered the flute, Sir,
And blew it by chance.
"Ah I" cried he, in wonder,
"How comes this to pass?
Who will now dare to slander
The skill of an ass!"
And asses in plenty
I see at a glance,
Who, one time in twenty,
Succeed by mere chance.
W? give this week a mode of cultiva.
ting sweet potatoes, which the writer pro
nounces a very successful one. This
may be true ; our principal object however,
is to call attention to the matter, as be
ing by no Aoeans an unimportant part of
every farmer's business, and to elicit if
possible, s6mething exactly suited to us
here at home, in the cultivation of this
important article of diet. There are men
in Edgefleld, who make as good crops of
this useful and nutritious root, as the
World can show; and, to judge from some
specimens we saw purchased in our mar.
ket a few days ago, they also understand
to perfection the art of preserving them
when made. We hope some such person
will give us a plain, simple and direct ac
count .of this mode of proceeding. It
'will be thankfully received, and may be
useful to many others besides ourselves.
From the Southern Planter.
Mr. EDrrOR:-In compliance with my
promise ind your request, I will now try
to lay before your readers my mode of
raising-potatoes, and shall do it in as few
iaods ai'pos'sible; it will be, however,
necessary. to be -explicity to hefullyt un
deistpod,. and most especially in these
dasof~wild ~ho~ ~without experience.
it Zi~s i~srm college, ipd is
w1dselled in language and woul dis
dami i kalinfornoaion of an experienced
farmhdr because he sometimes has come
for ciine addourn for yours, or hoss for
horse, and so on, yet experience and prac
tice~ often costs a gentle smile, and says
hej}aid dear, very dear for his whistle.
Aind now~ to-the subject.
Ist. The land must be light or sandy,
and~it will be much better to take poor
-Iland and make it rich. The great ad.
vantage will be less vines and more roots,
Secondly. The land should be well plowed
eight or ten inches deep. The plowving
should be done the first of March, and
shoulid be ploughed over, if possible, after
every rain, say once in twvo weeks ; and
always plough the same wvay. When
the time has arrived for planting, make a
nic~e four furrow bed. After the 1st bed,
run the beam of the plough next to the
bed, leaving a small stripe for the third
furrow. In this way you will have no]
need of stakes. Never bed the land until
you have a season. As soon as the
plough starts, start your hoes to hilling.
The rows and hills should be about threei
feet apart. If the day is cloudy it is best
to iset the plants as the hills are made ;
if not, let the hilla remain until late in the
evening; then, with the hand, knock off
all the dry dust, open the top wvith the
hand four inches, set the sprout straight,
press the dirt to the roots; he careful
that no leaves are covered. The planting
being over, in ten days, should there be
rain, the hills should be scraped down,
say to thme depth of one inch. Hills are
often chopped down, and the roots left
exposed, causing a failure of the crop.
After the scraping is over and the time
for hilling, which will be in two or three
weeks, run the plough twice in each rowv,
'which will make fine dirt, and a hand can
hill three times as many. This having
been~accomplished, a third hoeing, which
I call scraping up, is to be done, and this
should take place when the runners are
about to meet, or sooner if there should
be grass. It will be rememibered there is
no grass to remain on the top of the hill.
The work is done. I dig wvith a hoe. A
hand shouldLdig thirty bushels per day.
I have assumed the position that potatoes
are raised from the sprout, and perhaps it
may benefit some to give the mode. Have
the bed in a southern exposure ; dig out a
place in the form, of a ditch, eighteen
inches deep; take the manure fresh from
the stable and as clear of straw and stalks
as possible ; pack it down hard and smooth
to the depth of twvelve inches; then cover
it one inch deep with very rich light dirt ;
place the potatoes on the dirt, so as they
wvill not touch each other, then cover with
light rich dirt three inches; make all per.
fectly level and the work is complete. In
the manner above described 1 have raised1
lag quantities for Baltimore and Fred
rosburg markets, and it is no hard job
to raise three hundred bushels per acre,
en il soil. T have kept an account
oMe(io~oalde for tuwelve years, and
theyhave averaged over fifty cents per
busheL. One or two words more, Mr.
Editor, and I have done. There is no
dAubt somaem il a if all tisi is to bo
ddne, I will raise potatoes. Be it so
there is no gains without pains, and so
farewell. NoRTH UMBEeRLAND.
Now as to the Guinea grass. Althougl
I have been cultivating it only about si:
years, I have been acquainted with it sinc
the year 1827, and was probably the fire
person that brought it to this state. 1
the summer of 1830, I brought a buncl
of this grass, in a box, from Matanza
to Mobile and gave it to my friend DA
Casey, who told me the next spring h
had planted it in his garden, and had thei
a fine patch of it.
When it was first brought into thi
neighborhood, some- eight or ten year
ago, I suppose it came from Dr. Casey'
stock in Mobile, but being informed tha
it came from Virginia, I doubted the gen
uineness of it, believing that it would no
grow in climates so far north. But th
very moment I saw it, I recognised it, an
without pretending to be a botanist, I an
very certain that the Guinea grass whiel
we are now cultivating, is identical wit
the Guinea grass of the West Indies.
For hay, I do not think it by any mean
equal to the herds grass, but for soilin
or feeding it in a green state, I know c
no grass comparable to it. It may be c
in our climate four or five times durin
the season, and if cut before going t
seed, there is no grass of which horse
and cattle are fonder.
I became acquainted with this grass i
the Island of Cuba, where I spent sever
months in the winter and spring of 182
It was growing on almost every suga
and coffee estate that I visited on the i!
land, and was universally spoken of a
their best dependence for the sustenanc
of horses and cattle. Indeed its intrc
duction there was regarded as an era i
their agricultural history.
In that climate of perpetual verdun
it can be cut every month of the yeai
and in addition to its intrinsic value a
food, it is there extensively used for o1
namental purposes. In the long avenue
intersecting the beautiful coffee estates
shaded with several rows of trees, it 1
very common to see a row of the Guine
grass on each side of the cleanly swel
walks, growing luxuriently, and triminec
with great exactness, to a given widtl
extending from one side to the other c
the avenue. When these rows of gras
attain a certain height, they are all e
down at the same time and given to th
stock, thus, combining utility with orna
I understand objections are urged, ii
our climate, against the Guinea grass o1
account of the difficulty of getting rid o
it when once set out. I have never hear
this objection to it in the West Indiei
but. from my own knowledge of it, I an
inclined to think, if it becomes well sei
it will be very likely to maintain its pc
sition with great firmness, and will suffe
no intruder,.such as the-broom, to elbrn
it out. To this roprtv. I am not inclin~
ed seriouslyfo object, for in this climats
it is very certain it cannot be propagate
from the seeds, and the process of exten
sion from the roots must be slow, and
wvould recommend that it should never bi
planted where it is not intended to remair

We commend the following anecdot<
to the particular consideration of thosi
who are yet addicted to the practice o
shallow ploughing, and who think n<
good comes from deep stirring of the soil
By adopting the practice of deep plough
ing, a new source of wealth wvould be
apened on many farms, which the skin
sing culture of a century or twvo ha:
ever developed. But to the anecdote
which, though old, is just as good as ifi
were " bran new:"
" An old farmer, on his death bed, tok
is sons, who were not very industrious
ads, that he had deeply buried his mone'
a a particular field, which was the mos
marren land on his farm. Ini consequenet

aur farmer's sons, should they imagine

ars in some barren field, and be led tc

heir exertions would be amply rewvarded
es is illustrated ini the anecdote.
In further evidence of the great utility
f deep plowing, we copy the following
aragraph from the Report of the Hon
El. L. Ellsworth.

One of our subscribers, says the Rhode

turning to the boy, inquired

- "Any Santa CruzI"
, "Well, pour till I tell thee stop."
t It was done, and the boy mixed the
, contents of the tumbler, which was brim
ful, in the usual mode, our Quaker friend
f raised it to his lips, and poured down in
one continuous stream the whole "ar
t rangement." without the interruption of a
breath. Then, with a look of satisfac.
tion to the inner man, which on such oc
casions, is seen but not described, he sat
down his glass, and inquired what was to

ELMORE, BUaEE Cy., Dec.22, 1850.
Ma. J. E. MAasua,,-Dear Sir: In compli
ance with your request, I make this simple state
ment of facts. My boy Daniel stuck a thorn in
his foot about the first of last June, the thorn
was extracted, and no more thought of it for 15
or 20 days, his foot then began to swell, and in a
few days it was opened. It discharged a large
quantity of matter. The discharge continued
for eight days, and then eeased. His foot then
re-commenced swelling and extended up his leg,
thigh, and hip, with violent pain. He then be
gan to spit from his lungs matter similar to that
discharged from the abscess on his foot. I then
called in medical aid, and from the remedies used,
he was alternately better and worse for eight or
ten weeks. During this time a large abscess
formed upon the hip, the discharge was large,
and as soon as it ceased, a general swelling of his
leg, thigh and breast commenced, which was very
hard to the touch, and at times experienced much
difficulty in swallowing. Medical aid seemed of
no further avail, and was discontinued. I then
had recourse to your "Magical Pain Eradicator."
In forty-eight hours, from the time I commenced
its use, his foot began to soften ; the swelling on
his hip and breast subsided, and I am pleased to
say he is now well.
I again used your remedy in a case of Neu
ralgia, with great success, giving immediate re
lief. I have tried it also for Tooth-Ache, with
my youngest child, with entire success.
From the success I have. had in the use of
your " Magical Pain Eradicator," I have no hesi
tation in recommending it to the public...
Yours tEuly . .'
1. W. HUGHES."
'The above statements of the use of "-M.ar
shall's Magical Pain Eradicator," arc known by
me to be truie.

T HE above reward will be given for the ap
prehension and delivery in any convenient
jail, of TWO NEGROES, the property of the
-subscriber, a man and a woman.
rThc man's name is AUSTIN, very dark com
plected, has one of his upper front teeth out, five
feet eight or ten inches high, and weighs near
two hundred pounds.
The Woman's name is PHYLLIS, copper col
ored, chunky, and about 22 years of age.
-The fellow ranaway about two years ago, and
was for nine months in Auagusta, Ga., hiring his
Btime to diff'erent persons. It is probable he is
now in that place, as when lnst heard from, he
was making his way in that direction.
Half the above reward will be given for the de
