(:7 WE have not h'eard from our friend
- and co-laborer "ScooTERn" since he left,
some three weeks since. We dislike to sur

befallen him. Perhaps his funds, like all

he can't get home. At any rate we hope
nothing worse has otccurred to him.

the recipe for making the Tumeric pickles,
oe append it. There is no better fixin of
the kind this side of Jordan. Try it those
of you that have i aot yet done so. Plenty
of time. 'There are lots of young cncum
bers, gherkins, snaps, pepper-ods, cabbages,
green-corn, tender melons, onions, &c., still
to be had, atd all these things agree together
finely in a big pickle jar. Here's the receipe:
You first take a jar and Lut into it one
gallon of vinegar (very strong), one pint of
sugar, one pound of white-mustard seed, one
pound of black-mustard seed, one ounce of
Tuameric, four nutmegs (grated,) one handfull
of black pepper (ground,) one ounce of
cloves, ono ounce of slieed ginger, 2 boxes
of mustard (to be smoothly mixed with a
smalliquantity of vinegar before being pour
ed into the jar with the other things,) garlic
and horse-radish to your taste, and a few
onions cut in quarters. Mind now-all
these ingredients are to be put in your pickle
jar, and, together, they form the juice and
seasoning of your future pickles. This mix.
ture should be stirred at least once every
day. You can put in your vegetables as
youget them ready from time to time.
To prepare your vegetables-gather them
and put them in brine immediately. There
let thenm stay some 24 hours. Then take
them out of the brine and wipe them perfect.
ly -dry with a clean towel. Spread them on
dishes and put them in the sun. Trey should
be exposed thus until they are bleached.
When they have become. so, drop them in
your pickle-liquid as made above. Continue
to stir gently the increasing contents of your
jar until they become too thick to admit of
it. Your pickles wvill be fully fit for use by
the Winter. They will get better as they,
get older. Next year, the same liquid will
suffice for another pickling.
SAVE THAT WHIICHI IS MADE.
THEn above .maxim is a good one-one
that contains a lesson which all farmers
should learn and put into practice. The
wheat and other small grains that are annual
ly losat . 9r seriously injured by the neglect
of a duty-on the fart of farmers, so obvious
ly taught in the above golden-ruic, would
astonish us, could 'we only he permitted to
imagine one half of the quantity lost. It. is
strangethat farmers .wilL become so infatuat
ed, in their warfare with ". Gen. Green," that
they. will risk the entire loss of their small
grain in order to clean a few acres of cotton
which will not, in the end; yield them three
hundred pounds per acre. How many have
lzad their wheat crops injured during the pre
sent harvest; that are nowv wishing that they
had sasved that 'yhich .was made. And how
many have solemnly vowed 'that, for the
tiine torweoumpghey will'. never be guilty of
iuch folly again. ~ And yet, such is our
proneness to forget, even the' 'teachings of
experience, that we venture to predict, that.
many more will be caught in the same trap
next year. A wheat crop is worth more.
then thme time it takes to save'it, is worth to
thi potton crop. 'It is alwyays the' best poli
cy, tosave that which, is pjade.'

have'learned much from its instructive col
umns; ankil bai been muchr interested in

t're and edideation which I have derived
fro- your "Depament," but fearing that
you will not relish my.flattering praise, I
beg you will take the will for the deed. My
object in writing now is, to make an inquiry.
I have seen in various agricultural papers,
many experiments reported upon the subject
of Topping Cotton, and although a majority
of. these experiments- resulted in favor of
topping, yet I am at loss to know at what
stage of the crop, or at what particular time
cotton should be topped in order secure the
greatest advantage. I have heard many
planters discussing this interesting subject,
but so various are their practice and theories
that the question is still, to my mind, un
satisfactorily settled. Some contend that
from the 20th of July to the 10th of August
is the proper time to top, while others con
tend that as soon as ever the weed is knee.
high, without regard to the day or month, is
the time. And others again .will tell you
that unless the weed is in a rapidly growing
condition, topping will do more harm than
good. If you can throw any light upon
this mooted question it will be thankfully
received by A PLANTER.
Remark-:-" A PLANTER" has our thanks
for his flattering insinuations &c., and had
we any experience relative to the question
of" topping cotton" we would gladly avail
ourselves of the opportunity of giving him,
and others, a full benefit. But unfortunate.
ly we are in the same quandary with regard
to this important subject. We-venture, how
ever, to make the following suggestion. As
topping Cotton is generally practised in or
der to secure a greater yield, and conse
quently for the benefit of the planter. We
suggest that (in our opinion) the best time to
top cotton is, in planting time.
Will not some one, who has experience,
answer the query of " A PLANTER" for us ?
We hope so.
FOR THE ADVERTISER.
MESSRS. ErToRs.-While enquiries are
passing to and fro, I would like to know-if
it is possible for a farmer who has no hogs
to suit himself in the location of his stables ?
also,'whether a cistern, half full of water, is
worth more or less? By answering these
questions, you will oblige one who is ever
ready to eat any thing that may be set be
fore him, without a thought of disadvantage
to his neighbor.
Remarks.-You are facetious, Mr. "' RED
HILL," or else your brain is fuddled by
endeavoring to think on a subject unsuited
to your capacity. At present we must de
ine the pleasure of gratifying your thirst
for information. Write to us in one of your
luid intervals (if any such you enjoy,) and
we will see what wd can do for you. As
at present advised, we should urge your
friends, if they have any regard for you, to
have at least a "committee" appointed by
the Court of Equity to take charge of your
incomings and out goings. You must be
decidedly too dangerous a man to be suffer
ed to walk at large in any community.
LoNG CANE ROAD, Aug. 4, 1855.
Messrs. Colter 4. Scooter :-H aving visi
tedl one of my neighbors this morning, at his
request, to advise as to best construction of
a Cotton Screwv, he insisted on my remain
ing and witnessing a barbecue dinner to be
given that day to his negroes, in celebration
of their victory over the common enemy of
crops, well known as Gen.' Greene. Not
being very busy at home, I concluded to re
main, and was glad that I did so.
About 11 o'clock, after all-white, black,
old and young-had partaken freely of the
choicest fruits and melons, my neighbor's
little son mounted the long table in the back
yard, and read in a car and distinct style,
DECLARATION oF~ iNDEPENDENCE.
WHuEN in the course of human events, it
becomes necessary for onie farmi to dissolve
the vegetable bands which havo connected it
to the yoke of General Greene, and to as

borhood its separate and equal station, to
which the lawis of nature and natui-e's God

our neighbors, require that we should de
clare the means which, under tho blessing
of a merciful God, we have so narrowly es.
caped destruction from this mnercil-ss foe.
We hold these truths to bdi -self-evident:
That all farms are not' crested .equal-that
they are endowed by their Creator with cer
tain .and peculiar soils, that among these are
clayey, sahdy, and a combination of these
two-a.me rich; and some poor indeed !
That poor land will not bring much grass.
But to prove to a candid world that ours is
not a poor plantation, we can point to
stumps in the field still covered with heaps
of our foe-nay more, we point- to large
piles of worn out plows, weeding hoes, shat
tered plow stocks, poor mules, and -a corn
crib whose floor is illumined by the King o'f
Day. We have stemned the floods, wve've
braved the storm and the hurrioane, we've
not flinced from the scorching rays of the

EXPERIMIENTS WITH BOILED POTATOES.
No fact in rural economy is better estab
lished, than that cooked food is far more
more valuable for feeding animals, than the
same food when given in a crude or uncook.
ed state. Probably every practical man is
aware of this, yet very few avail themselves
of the advantages it is calculated to secure.
Last season I commenced boiling potatoes
for a hog, allowing him one peck a day,
and the same time shut up his mate-about
the same size,-the first being only five
pounds heavier, and began giving- hini un
cooked potatoes. -They were both fed at
the same time, morning, noon . and night,
and both were allowed all they would con
sume. Now while the peck of boiled pota
toes amply sufficed for the first, the, peck of
unboiled ones did not suffice for the second ;
he. was restless, continually traversing his
pen 'and sqealing as if in distress, while the
first took his breakfast, and then quietly re
tired to his straw where he enjoyed his
siesta till his dinner arrived, which was pre
cisely at 12 o'clock, M. Aware that the
allowance was insufficient for.the wants of
the system, I increased it, giving him twelve
quarts per day instead of eight, the quantity
with which I had commenced. This kept
him somewhat more quiet, yet at times his
old restlessness would return, with its usual
,accompaniment-squealing, but no- farther
alteration was' made, and he continued to
receive his twelve quarts per day-four at a
meal-till the experiment was completed,
and both put up "to fat." On weighing
the two, I found that the one fed on one peck
of boiled food, had gained one hundred
pounds in three months, while the one fed
on raw food, had increased in weight but
fifty-six, scarcely more than the increase of
growth-and the start which the first one
thus gained, kepit him in advance of the
other till blh were brought to the tub.
Some may say that the cost of fuel, and
time in cooking, would be more than an
equivalent for the forty-four pounds gain;
and so perhaps it would; but it is not con
templated to' cook with ordinary apparatus,
or for one' hog only. Where there are sev
eral -to feed, the farmer can afford to fur
nish himself with a steaming'- apparatus,
which wvilj render the business both economi
cal, and easy to perform.-A Montgomery
County Farmer, in Germantowcn Te'legruph.

GEORGIA SARSAPARILLA I
A- PURE & UNADULTERATED ARTICLE,
FOR DISEASES OF THE LIVER,
Afl 1 N 1 2 3303iDO.
THIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the. Sarsa
parilla which grows in the Southern States and
nothing else. It has the natural Sarsaparilla taste.
Its effect upon the system in all cases in which Sar
saparilla is indicated Is wonderful. It is a great
safeguard against diseases arising from a torpid state
of the Liver, or impure state of the Blood.
Generally, it acts upon the Bowels as a mild pur
gative or laxative. It not only mildly moves the
Bowels, but gives tone to the system by restoring a
healthy action in the Liver, and by freeing the blood,
from its impurities.
For children it is a great preventive of worms
and supereedes the necessity of giving them so
much worm medicine; at the same time it improves
their general health.
A better and more useful medicine cannot be in
troduced into Edgefield District, either for profes
sional or family use, than the Georgia Sarsapar a.
This Sarsaparilla is not to be sold on commis
Price, per bottle,$51--Six bottles $5. For sale by
07 Those ordering this article from Druggists or
Commission Merchanti, should-expresa in their or
ders, Dennis' Georgia Sarsaparilla.
