IS YOUR CORN UP?
THE late freezes and frosts have much
retarded the sprouting and coming up of the
corn crop,-especially that planted before
the heavy and washing rain of the 15th ult.,
has put many a farmer in a quandary, as
well as ourselves, in relation to replanting or
plowing up and planting over in toto. The
quandary is rendered more perplexing to
us who have spotted or dribbled what little
manure we made in the drill, and that without
being checked off-hence the difficulty of
finding the manure's whereabouts. Some of
it has been beaten into the clay and hermeti.
cally sealed with deposits of sand, and many
a handful has gone the way of Ward's geese
-away down the river.
Well, what's to be done. Well-w-h.y,
-just- We " acknowledge the corn."
It's a stumper, and our "Insider" knew it
when he put the query.
As a general rule a grain of corn, to sprout
and come up in favorable circumstances,
should be, in a pulverized and mellow soil,
within 'I to 3 inches of the surface, and ac
cessible to heat and light, moisture and elec
tricity. Corn planted before a heavy, wash
ing rain, accompanied as the one alluded to,
with wind, hail and thunder, should be
plowed up in toto and all planted over again.
We close with a question of Political
Economy for our "I hider,"-What is the
wisdom or philosophy of punishing as a crim
inal the incendiary who sets fire to one's
house, and letting another go unpunished
who burns up your plantation fences and
barns, and dwelling house with the rest?
We will gladly receive from some of our
contributors, their views on these momentous
questions. What has become of "FAR
mer" and his corn ?
THE GEORGIA AND CAROLINA HORSE.
N the article of Hon. Z. PRATT, Which
we conclude this week, it is stated that the
Carolina and Georgia horse is not capable
of hard labor. This is true, in reference
to the Kentucky Horse in general use in
South Carolina and Georgia, but it is not
true, in reference to the genuine Carolina or
Georgia horse. We are of opinion that
we can raise as good horses in Edgefield, as
can be found aiqy where, from the full blood
four mile horse down to the horse of all
wvork. We also believe that a well bred and
well raised Edgefield horse, will last as long
again as a Kentucky horse. We are near
about the same latitude as Arabia Petra, and
our soil, climate and pasture. is good enough
to produce horses and mules better adapted
to our uses than we can get from abroad.
But there is but one but in the way and that
is Cotton-we must make 8 cents Cotton to
buy our horses and mules, and hogs and
lard from Kentucky, and our shoes and nut
megs and axe-handles fromt New England!
Wereally believe we cannot do anything
with our people-so we will cut short our
Turis vegetable, whether pronounced kew
cumbers, kuck--cumbers or cow-cumbers, is
at all events a very refreshing and appetising I
addition to the dinner-table on a hot sum
mler's day. T[he smell alone, which is ex
haled from a wvell-prepared plate of them, is
enough to arouse the stomach into a condi
tion highly preparatory to the discharge of
its proper functions ini the wvay of absorption
and digestion. We are aware that many
regard them very unwholesome; and it is
probaly true that, taken in undue quanti
ties, they are so. But a little every day, to
impart a relish to one's fried chicken and
rice, cannuot surely' be very deleterious. I
Wholesome or unwholesome, the cucumber
is decidedly a favorite, and as this is the
.pcecise time to be planting them, wve ap
pond a mode, wvhich is said to be a very suc
cessful one. We are indebted, for it, to a
"Subscriber," who very modestly withholds
his name. Read it and try it:
" Saw a common..sized barrel in half, and
put one of the parts, small end downwards,
into the ground, leaving the top of the half
barrel barely even with the surface. Fill it
with rich dirt 4 inches deep. Then make a
rough box (not water-tight) about 5 inches
square, with one end nailed up but not so as
to hold water. Place the box, with the
headed end at bottom, in the centre of the
barrel, and then fill the barrel all around it
up to the surface of the ground with rich
loam, or the washings of a bottom, and wvell
rotted manure. The box should stand seve
ral inches above the surface, as the design
of it is to receive dirty water, soap suds,
&c., to nourish tho plants around it in dry J
seasons. Plant your seed, say 4 hills in th3 a
barrel around the box. Thin to one plant
in a place. Stir the earth well till the vines
begin to run, and then, if you like,, make a<
frame for ,them to run on. The more they<
shade each other the better. Cucumber I
vines, thus raised, will bear until frost and
bear abundantly." -.- +-' -
alteMA?NURE lEAPS. T: j
As altemanure of the stable and barni
lots has been hauled out, ere this time they a
should have been filled up again with strawv
and leaves, on a gOd foundation of pond
or swamp muck. And be sure to make each
load of manure next year worth twice as
mu..h ase ast, by the friflinig expense of
pouring coperas-water enough over it to fix
the ammonia, and prevent it from taking
wings and flying into the " abstruse regions
of philosophic space."
PASSING by the residence of a friend and
subscriber the other day and observing him
busily engaged in what seemed to be his
water-melon patch, we remarked, after the
customary saluations on meeting, " Fixing
to plant water.melons to-day, I see!"
" No !" he replied, " Only fixing to plant
some of the seed."
"Taken down fairly, by all that's merry!
But tell us, neighbor, your mode of plant
ing. We are on the look-out for facts, large
and small, in the way of practical husban
dry; and, knowing you to be a skilful raiser
of melons, we would be glad to have your
real plan of culture."
" Well of course, if I give you any plan
at all, it shall be the genuine one."
"Oh, of course -of course. We don't
doubt that-only, some people, you know,
dislike to disclose to every body the secret
of their success."
1 Welf, I aint that kind of a person
never was and never will be."
And our neighbor proceeded, leaning on
the fence, to dictate the following:
First and foremost, be sure you get good
seed. The best soil is, unquestionably, a
sandy one. The Surest way of manuring is
by cow-pening. But a thick coat, broad
cast, and well plowed in, will do. Lay offI
the ground ten feet each way. Right in
every cross, dig a hole, 18 inches square.
Fill these holes, with soil and manure well
mixed to a little rise above the level of the
ground. And then put your seed in these
ills. Let the hills, or beds, be thinned out
arly, leaving not more than two plants in a
place. Tend your patch well with the hoc
antil your vines are 18 inches or perhaps 2
7eet in length. Then plow carefully with a
urning plow, so as to make your ground
iigher at the hills. Leave a deep furrow in
he middle, so that as little water as possible
may stand in your patch after a hig rain.
This cause more than almost any other ruins
watermelon vines. It makes them turn yel
ow and fail directly. After this plow
ng, use nothing but the hoe. Keep your
atch clean all the time. If you wish large
nelons, when you find some two or three
iealthy ones to a vine, cut off the top and
dil the suckers or scions that may come ;
ind you will hardly be disappointed in fruit
>f the finest quality.
Is addition to what we said last week of
his new cotton, we copy from the Farmer
t Planter the opinion of " BRoo31SEDGE,"
i favorite agricultural writer of the day and
i decidedly sensible man. He remarks:
By the way, while talking we may as
well say that the best variety of cotton we
iave ever planted, is called thu " Calhoun
Cotton." Where it originated, we are nut
ible to say. Capt. Byrd kindly sent us
half a bushel of seed, from which wve have
picked 511 lbs. of very beautiful cotton.
The overseer counted 70 bolls uponr one
stalk not over knee high. It is no humbug
-for we have selected our seed for years,
rrom fancy stulks, and being side by side,
ve have been compelled reluctantly to give
True Albany (Gam.) Patriot has the follow
ng remarks upon this common but very ex
~ellent fruit-bearing root. We remember
~nee seeing a patch of five acres or more on
he plantation of the late GRoRGE MCDU-F
'IE. He, like the gentleman alluded to by
lie Patriot, raised an immense quantity per
ire. His object wvas to fatten his hogs in
his way. His success wve never learned.
We doubt not, however, the adaptedness of
he ground pea to this purpose, and conm
nend the matter to the consideration of our
Thus speaks the Patriot :-" A gentle
nan residing near this place, informs us that
ie has dug and measured a sufficient quanti
y of ground peas to ascertain that they will
verage 105 bushels to the acre ! The
and planted is ordinary pine land, on which
vas put a little manure. The labor bestow
edwas not more than would be necessary to
>lanlt and attend the same ground in cotton.
" The nutritious qualities of the ground
aea are generally known. They are said
>y those who have made the experiment, to
>e superior to corn for fattening hogs, and
or that purpose they are raised and fed with
ess trouble than any other Crop. 'They
ied not be gathered, but remain good in
,ho ground until March or A pril. Duridg
tix months from the first of October to the
irst of April, hogs may be turned into the
eld of ground peas and kept as fat as
ough they had free access to a crib of
:orn. What farmer in Georgia will here.
fter buy Western pork ?"
Tiua following method of planting sweet
rotatoes may be worthy of adoption. There
s certainly an appearance of frankness and
-easonableness in the writer's style of an
ouning it. Whether it is the thing or not,
ye have yet to learn ; and that wve propose
o do by trying a half-acre or so of the next
rep. We extract from that adlmirable Ag
icultural publication, the " Southern Culti.
The old method of planting sweet potatoes
a hills and ridges, in this dry climate, anid
ur hard upper 'country lands, is all wvrong.
~otatoes must have moisture and soft earth
o do well. But they lack both in the com
non culture. Hills arid ridges are the driest
'rms in wvhiich you can put the soil. Flat
ulture is the only right kind for potatoes,
>r anything else, in our burning climate anid
m our clay uplands. Potatoes should be
lanted as flat, and may, in that wvay, be
>lanted as easily, as corn.
First, break up the land wvell; then lay off
owvs 4 feet wide with a shovel plow ; run
!eip in the same track with a rooter, anid
hen, if you want it perfect, deep~er still
a the same furrow with a common new
:round coulter. Next, list upon both sides
>f this in same way ; that -is, with shovel,
ooter and coulter--one right in the track of
he other. Trhis makes deep work, and the
eeper the better. It is soon done.- Your
~round is now ready-deep, loose and moist,
nd will keep so all ummer.
Now for planting and culture. With a
rooter draw a shallow furrow on the. top of
the list, just over the first shovel track, to
guide you in dropping. In this drop the
seed, cut roots, sprouts or vine-cuttings,
twelve or fifteen inches apart, and cover
lightly. Plow them- a few times, just like
corn, running close to the potatoes with a
rooter, and finish off each with a cultivator,
or some other plow to keep the middles
This mode of culture is not one-fourth as
troublesome as hills; the crop is wonderful.
Tlhis is not theory, but is my constant prac
tice. By this mode the vines never turn
yellow; the crop comes forward early in
August, and the owner has no chance to
to talk about "small potatoes."
W give below the couclusive remarks of
Hon. ZADOCK PRATT on the Horse.
I will only mention one other English
horse, before proceeding to another topic.
It is " Flying Childers;" the first native born
English race horse, and the progenitor of
the now unequalled English horse for the
race-course. He was the immediate descen
dant of an Arabian horse, obtained from
Aleppo, and as he was the first, so he was
the fastest race horse ever in England. He
ran over a race-course, three miles, six fur
longs, aid ninety-three yards, in six minutes
and forty seconds. At another time, he ran
four miles in seven minutes, and in one sin
gle minute he ran with a small fraction of a
single mile. This speed has never been
quite equalled in this country, the fastest
horse being Fashion, and the quickest time
being seven minutes and thirty-two seconds,
over a course four miles in length. The great
double race, between Eclipse and Sir Henry
has often been spoken of, as one of the best
contested and most remarkable. I think
that Sir Henry was the best horse, and, in
the first race, he beat Eclipse by twenty-two
feet. In the second trial, however, lie was
beat by Eclipse, hy eleven feet, and the vic
tory was undoubtedly gained by the superior
management of his rider. I refer to the
fact as evidence of the necessity of having
good riders and those who thoroughly un
derstand the animal, as well as to have a
good horse itself.
Though I am not an advocate of horse
racing, I consider it an innocent and benefi
cial amusement, when compared with many
others, and I believe the day is riot far dis
tant when America may invite every other
nation to a trial of horses, and beat them
The Canadian horses are of French ori
gin, and to this stock we are indebted for
most of the trotting horses in the United
States. It is a marked peculiarity of the
Canadian horse that he always trots, as the
Arabian horse always canters. Other breeds
exhibit ill the peculiarities of movement,
including the trot, canter, and amble, but the
Arabian horse never tr d the Canadian
rarely canters. Besides the trotting horse,
we aro indebted to Canada for many of the
most serviceable specimens of the cart and
dray horse, of their size, and in the northern
part of this State, in Vermont, and other
sections on the Canada line, they are met
with in great abundance. .
The United States do not, as I have
mentioned, possess anything which can be
called a native stock, but many of the hor
ses found here, are superior to any others,
owing to judgment in crossing breeds, care
in raising, and by a close observance of all
circumistances which will improve good
.ualities and correct defects, so that I may
say, without hesitation, and after long obser
vation, that they combine all the excellen
ies of other nations. It was supposed that
the horse sent from Mforocco to Geni. Jack
son, and the Muscat horses sent to President
T'yler, would materially im prove the Ameri
can race, but they were small though justly
made, anid I thiink the country has derived
no benefit from their possession.
Much of this excellence is obtaindt by
changing a horse froni one section to anoth
er, provided the change of climate is not
one which will have a dheleterious effect.
Thus a horse brought from the Western
prairies to the seaside, soon gains in weight,
power- of endurance, and value; and the
same is observed when an Eastern horse is
carried West. A horso with the heaves ta
ken from New York to Illinois will he cured
of the disease, and I have noticed many
other favorable changes. Still thiero is al
ways more or less necessity for acclimation,
but a judicious course of management will
result in much good to the horse. The
change, however, will be injurious, if the
new climate is not healthy. Thus, a horse
taken from here to South Carolina, soon1
depreciates and becomes of less value. A
horse taken to Mlexico, feels the change of
climate~at first, very sensibly, but the purity
of the air, and the excellence of the feed,
soon adds largely to his usefulness and value
and lie is much more highly estimated than
the native Msxican mustang, which partakes
of the uncertain and flighty character- of the
people who raise him.
The horses of Carolina, Georgia, and
other southern States, cannot work as well
as those of a more temperate climate. In
fact, I have frequently observed that the
horse attained a hiigher degree of excellence
in a temperate section, while mules and the
darkey were fitted for the south.
No horse can endure labor all the time.
A fewv months in the pastur-e, after being
high fed, and worked for several years, will
renew his energles, as stated periods of rest
and recreation will preserve the vital ener
gies of man unimpaired through a long life;1
atd by a wise law of providence, wvhich is
as beneficial to the beast as to the man, a
horse will do more labor in the six days than
if he were worked the whole seven.
In reference to the peculiar excellence of
the horses of this State, I might say that I
have driven a pair- two hundred and forty
miles in three days, or eighty miles per (lay,
without injury. Amongst the many hun
dreds, anid perhaps thousands of drivers and
teamsters in my emlploy, I had a slowv mould
ed man by the name ef Dania Brown, wh'lo
drove for me some ten years, and always
drew the largest loads ini the same time, and
with less fatigue to his horses, than any
other driver I ever kne w. His horses would
look better on the sanme feed than those of
any other, and they always appeased in good
condition, wvhile those in charge of others
ave unmistakable evidence of improper
usage. Forty, fifty, an~d eveti sixty hundr-ed
weight has lie drawti over the Catskill moun
tainis with onie pair of horses, anid I am only
doing him ani act of justice, to say that he
never wore out a lash, and hardly a snapper
in the whole time. Whilst other teamsters
ad sick hor-ses, his were always in gotnd
ondition. T'ho whole number of teams I
ad in one year, averaged in every three
orking days, 2,600 pounds to Prattvide,
ad 3,000 pounds to Catskill, a (distance of
36 miles, making about twvo and a htalf mil
ions of pounds in all. I mention these facts,
s illustrating the groat benefit of good
nanagement of horses, and of good roads.
In feerding a h.o..e, it shonl be remenm.
bered that corn has a tendency to make him
slow, as may be witnessed in the slow mov
ing corn fed horse of Ohio. Oats are more
suitable to develop all his qualities, and from
twelve to sixteen quarts per day should be
With retard to the natural longevity of a
horse, nothing can he said with certainty.
They have been known to live thirty or
forty, and in some rare instances, even 60
years; but ill usage frequently destroys
them before thev are -nine or ten. I think
that under ordinary circumstances, fourteen
years would be a fair average.
Too much importance cannot l3e placed
upon the judicious breaking and manage
ment of this noble animal. It should be
like that of a child. By no other means
can he be reduced to a cheerful and ready
obedience. A sullen and dogged submis.
sion will result, it'is true, from cruel and
brutal treatment, but a prompt and eager
response to the wish of the rider can only
be obtained by patient kindness. I think
there are few horses baujky by nature, and
I believe most are made so by drivers who
are blessed with far less brains than the
horse himself has.
On the subject of the diseases of the
horse, and other points concerning him, as
nearly every one is his own doctor, I will
get over that point very quickly.
There is one thing to be remembered,
however, in obtaining good horses, which
must receive attention, or the stock will
inevitably 4eprcciate. It is, that the same
stud horse should never remain in the same
locality more than three or five years at the
farthest. The constant mingling together of
the same blood in the human family leads to
both physical and mental depreciation, as is
peculiarly illustrated in some of the old
crowned heads and aristocracy of Europe.
Owing to their prejudices against other clas.
ses of society, they have intermarried with
each other, until they have become so close
ly related, that they are far inferior to the
common people. It is a fact well known,
that the lower branches of European legis
latures possess far more intellectual ability
than is found in the aristocratic branches,
and it is from this cause. The superiority
of the American race is mainly owing to
its freedom from prejudices of rank, so that
marriages are made without reference to
absolute high social position. The same
rule holds good with all inferior animals.
There is hardly any farmer who is not famil
iar with the fact, as applied to his poultry
yard; and, as I said befoe, it is of immense
importance in ke 'a i the good qualities
of the horse ; so , that great disap.
pointment will sureJ irut, if it is forgotten.
In conclusion, I dsire to say that the his
tory of the horse can hardly be entered into,
without obtaining a general knowledge of
the various epochs in the history of the
world, and in that point of view alone, it
may be considered a matter of no secondary
importance. Though apparently only a
research into one branch of natural history.
it opens a field of examination into the
manners and customs of different ages, and
exhibits the gradual, but sure march of in.
tellect and intelligence, from one generation

Dzaa STa:-Isend you tWis to certify to you that jour
Extratofo Yellow Dock and Barsapa lla hs performed
one or the most wonderful cures on me that lies etel been
elfected on man. I have been aillicted fbr foily years wit!
eruptions on my legs and feet; in 188 thef got so bad.
that I had to go on crutches, and in 1849 1had oae
auputated above the knee. In about ninemonthsaflez
other leg broke out in large eating and running sores fro
mny knee to my foot, and discharged a great deal of olfeno
sire matter. My groin also broke. out in large biles, which
discharged much offensive matter, and at the same time
my left band broke out in largo runningsores nearly to my
elbow. The misery that I have suffered for the last two
years I cannot describe to you. I was in such agony thas
I never rested day or night.
In October last my son brought me one of your bottle'
wrappers; I read it, and found record of some wonderffl
cures performed by your " Extract of Yellow Dock and'
Biarsaparilla." I sent and got two bottles of it, and com'
menced taking it. In two weeks, to great astonishment,
ny sores all became easy, and I coud sleep all night, &.
thing I had not done for two years. When I had taken'
six bottles, my sores got well as if by exchantment. I have'
now used in all eight bottles of your "Extract of Yellow
Dock and Saraparila." and I conslider myself well.
I entreat all of the afflicted to try this medicine, for I beo
leve it will cure any known disease in the world. Lay
aside all prejudice and ust try it, and prclaim its' reat
worth to sufliering mankind and entreat tem to take rt.or'
it will cure them. My case is well known to X large portion'
of South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, and if say sould' .
doubt the above qure, I invite them to call on in and I,
will show them the scars. I can be found in T apooss
Co,, Ala., one mile from Stoe's Ferry.
C" The Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla Is peculiarly
adapted for femalesof delicate health, resulting from =i u
larity of menstrual discharges, and other diseases ar
to their sex. The proprietor has in his po~scailon a great
number of certificates of cures pt rfarmed, of the above de
scription. We assure the afflicted, that a bottle or two-ot'
Dr. Guysott's Extract or Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla will
at once regulate those difficulties and renew the natural
