"PIscAron" is referred to Capt. WARD
for the necessary information in relation to

"Novrca."-.You will please refer to Dr.

caring crap grass hay. We-imagine he can
give you the requisite information.
"Parur Woois,"-You ask "Will whor
tleberries or Gooseberries' make wine."
Well, we don't know for certain, but if -wine
can be brought from them, we wish-it distinct

not for sale.
" Muon" asks " Who is the best farmer
in the District." We answer, he that makes
the most by tending to his own business and
letting other people's alone,-who raises his
own meat, mules, wool, &c.,-buys the
least of foreign produce-never waits for his
neighbor to repair each half of a copartner
ship-fence,-and who takes two or three
good agricultiral papers and pays for teem

TIE FIEAN PLOW.
Wa call special attention to the advertise
mnent of this Plow; and can speak from ex
periene, that it is. the very best plow, all
things -considered, now in use. It is superior
to all- plows in stiff 'elay soils, wvhich want
thorough culture; indispensable to sandy
-soils having clay foundations, and even as
good as the best for thorough preparation in
Spring af sandy soils without olay subsoils.
'The Stock being of wrought iron, does
not rot soon, or need any wedging up; and
if the mule runs away, and runs around the
Seid again and again, the old Iron Plow al
ways comes out best in -the- race, and is
rady to eommencee operations at the bid of
the driver. It will avoid the trouble and ox
pense of elevis and pin. It can be suited to
a long and narrow sub-soil plow hoe, or a
seodier, or coulter, or scraper or sweep and
turning plow that will turn over the sedge
.and weeds better than any plow we ever
saw, and that without -choking up. -Nay,
more, we never heard alledged one reasona
-4le objection to it from the most c~ritical
judges of what a plow ought t be. .
THE INSPIRATION OF TRUFFLES.
Here is one vegetable that we know noth
ing in the world about. We pluck the fol
lowing notice of it from the Agricultural
Division of the Patent office:
-Tde CULTIvATION OF TRUFFLCs.-It
has been suggested to the Patent Office that
measures shouald be taken to introduce the
truffle into the United States. This esculent
- which in some respects resembles the mush
*rdom, has been the favorite dish of epicures
- from time immemorial to the present day,
and yet -strange to say, they have always
been scarce .and high-prieed, few -knowing
bow to raise them, and fewer still possessing
'the proper knowledge to prepare them for
- ihe table. The royal cooks of France say
dhat "the truffle improves all it touches,"
and -happy the cuissinier who can give a
etaste of its delicacy and flavor to each bepa
A gay. French writer says: "When I
eat truflles, I at once think myself transpor
ted' to another world ; for instantly my spir.
it becomes more gay and joyous; my bloe'd
coerses my .veins with an indescribable
pleaure ; an agreeable voluptuoustiess seizes
upon -me, and my wvhole spirit is changed
by the delicious symposium. As I continue
eatimig, mny judgment becomes sound and
discreet, my wit sharp and ready, and my
imagibigi pr'the most lofty, variedl, and
beutiul-laIndeed, a strt of inspiration
comes overme, and I feel as if dould readily
writesn''eiO poem, address a popular as
sembly with unsurpassed eloquence, and
composO works.whish,;for depth of learning,
and bea';ud- linady'f style, should
astonish te world. Thetitbe agreea~le di
gestion which- followa--.ths-delioious sleep
and the ecstatic dreams Ias, language is
too poor to portray these ; and-al-yea, all
-ar inspired by truffles !".
If such be really the effect of this vegeta
bli, would it not be a good iea for editors
'-to get into the seed. -Any such agreeabf.
help to die imigination would be ar g
iboen dull, dull times. But we dare say- the
remarks of Monsieur Frenchinan, as copied
above, ought to be taken with many grains
of allowance. Dr. LEIBER, in his "Ameri
cana Encyclopedia," says that these truffles
are good enough but very indigestible.
SCOOTER"- TO "CAMRIDGE."
WE are truly sorry that our friend " CAX
BRIDGE" construed anything in our reply to
his article, into a want of kindness or loss of
temper.. We assure him again, that nothing
as yet has excited any other emotion in us,
but, a fondness for the jest. We- confess
that we were not at the time properly posted
and that some of our flings were made at
randum.- We hope he will so consider them.
Believing that his affability and confiding
nature has already suffered by being too
easily influenced by his "Ransey -Snie"
advizers, and knowing that he has soul that
can be soothed by the mellowing strains of
poetry, theifollowing lines, to this end, are
Awake ! awake! my dprmant muse,
My long neglected lyre infuse
Strike ! strike " th' enchanted shell" again,
And breathe for-me some pleasing strain.
That will not fall with-" caustic" hard,
Upon the "living" Cow-Pea bard.
O, no! we would not kill or wound
So choice a pen as we have found;
But rather, dip our pen in mirth,
And chant aloud his priceless worth,
Who throws his pallet to the breeze,
And substitutes for pills Cow Peas.
Our "-witness" lives, is living still,
But warns us-lay aside the quill;
We give it up, we cannot pull,
- 'Gainst one who sells a sway-back bull,'
With-wrinkled brow aid water face,
For "blooded Stock-pure Devon race."
." The milk of human kindness" still,
Uncurdled flows-a pleasing thrill,
For " CaasanE" ad his Ransep's" jest ;
And e'er will make us do our best,
To strengthen bonds of friendship true,
That ne'er shall end or take adieu.

' THE AGRICULTURAL CONVENTION.
OUR farmiers should give their serious and
areful attention to the following Report of.
the Committee on Business to the Agricul
ural Convention recently assembled in Co.
The Committee. to whom was referred
the prepgration of business for the coissidera
ion of thisConvention, respectfully report:
That they have calnly and maturely re
feted upon the objects which have caused
o large and intelligent a number of citizens
o convene at this place. Your Commitee
ave come to the conclusion, that a period
as arrived in the agricultural history of
South Carolina, where something ought and
must be done to stop the retrograding mo
tion of -our agricultural interests-some
means must be adopted, by which her citi
zens will be aroused from their present state
of lethargy, and some effort made to unite
them in one coummon band of brotherhotod,
for the purpose of advancing tho agricultu.
ral, scientific and mechanical interests of
Your Committee would earnestly bring to
the attention of this Convention the mourn
ful fact, that the interest heretofore taken by
ur citizens in agricultural improvemient has
become stationary ; that our 'old fields are
nlarging; our homesteads have been de
reasing fearfully in numbers; and her en.
rgetic sons at-e annuaill seeking the rich
and- fertile lands of th southwest, upon
which they imagine that treble the amount
of profits can be made upon capital, than
upon our own soils. Nor is this all. We
are not only. losing some of our most ener
geticoeitisens, to supply the bone and sinew
of other States, but we are losing our slave
population, which is the true wealth of the
State; our stoocks of hogs, horses, mules
nd cattle are diminishing in size and de
easing in number, and our -purses are be.
ing strained for the last cent, to supply their
plaes from the northwestern States. This
state of affairs should not exist. We must
arouse, by some means, the dormant ener
gies of our people. We must bring them
n contact with each other,'where they can
see .a hear. each fr himself some nserul
and practicable suggestion of his neighbors,
and from the citizens of other parts of the
:State. We must see and bear how our citi
zens are restoring oar worn-out lands-the
improvements they are making upon, their
stocks of mules, hogs, cattle and shee
what great increase in the yield of eir
crop, by a judicious selection of seeds-the
mode and manner of planting and tilling
their.land-and lastly, to see the great im
provement that are daily being made in ag
ricural implements. When our people
see and hear these things for themselves,
there will be a spirit of inquiry awakened
in the-breast of every one, and the echo will
fly from the mountain to the seaboard. We
will stand by the old Palmetto Statel Our
sons will no longer seek the god of mam
mon, in the fertile lands of the south-west ;
but an attachment and zeal will be engen.
dered in the bosom of* each - for -our homes
and the land of our birth, that will never die
as long as this spirit of inquiry and emula
tion is kept alive. When we take into con:
sideration the natural advantages we enjoy,
our great system. of railroad inter-communi
cation, by. which is daily developed the hid
den resources of our State-our easy access
to one of the beat and cheapest markets on
the -Atlantic-the comforts of life and health
we enjoy in the middle and upper districts,
and then contrast them with the low wa
ters in the western rivers-the cholera, the
yellow fever and mosquitoes .which scourge
the south-west, we will then be convinced
that our homes in South Carolina are more
durable, and our land will yield us great iett
income over the lands in the south-west.
The question then, suggests itself, how
are the energies of our people to be awaken
ed upon the all-important subject of agricul
tural improvement ! We answer, it can be
done by the establishment of a State Agri
cultural Society,.aided and assisted by dis
trict societies-by collecting useful facts and
instriretive opinions, which are known to
numerous individual farmers, the embodying
s.* useful information, and diffusing it
throughout the State-by the annual exhibi
tion of the agricultural, mechanical, artistic
and domestic productions of our citizens.
At these fairs our people will be brought in
contact with each other--expression of opin
ions will be elicited, inquiry will be set on
foot, and our people will return from each
annual festival with new ideas, and 'in fixed
determination to turn over a new leaf in
agricultural improvement. To encourage
us in the establishment of a State Agricultu
ral Society, we have but to cast our eyes to
our sister States, Virginia, Maryland; North
Carolina 'and Georgia, and see what
State -Agricultural Societies have done in
giving a new impulse to the energies of
their people; their old fields have been re
claimed, expatriation of their sonsas in a
great measure ceased, and thej now linger
on the fatherland, tied by kindred and hal.
lowed associations. We feel that something
should be done to arrest the deterioration of
our land, and the expatriatiott- of our ener
getic sons from our proud old State, made
glorious by the brilliant achievements of the
sages and patriota that have gone before us.
Your Committ'ee, therefore, without ex
pressing any opinion as to the management
and working of the Society, for they con
cede that to be the appropriate duty of the
Executive Committee, beg leave to submit.
the following resolutions, for consideration
of the Convention:
Resolved, That a State Agricultural So
ciety be formed.
Resolved, Tbat the State. Agricultural
Society shall consist of individual members,
upon their paying an annual subscription of
two dollars, or twenty-five dollars for lire
Resolved, That a committee of five be
appointed by the Pr esident, to draft a suita
ble Constitution, that they proceed forthwith
to the discharge of their duties, and report
the same at the earliest practicable moment
or ratification by the Convention now in
Resolved, That if suitable arrangements
an be made with the citizens of Columbia,
this Committee recommend that the Society
be established at this place.
All which is respectfully submitted.

lOW TO MAEONE FARM EQ)JAL TO THREE.
In a recent address by G. T. Stewart,
Esq. before the Ohio Agricultural Society,
he thus speaks on this subject:
Many farmers are destroying the prodpc
tiveness of their farms by shallowv work.
As they 'fid that their crops are diminishing
they think only of extending their acres of
surface, as if they supposed their tidle deeds
only gave them a right to six inches of earth.
If they will take those deeds, -study their
meaning, and apply the lesson to their fields,
they will soon realize in three fold crops,
the act that the lawv has giveni them three
farms where they supposed they had only
one; in other words, that the subsoil,
brought up and combined with the top soil
and enriched with-the atmospheric influences
and those other elements which agricultural
science will teach them to apply to their
ground, will increase three fold the measure
of its productiveness.
To showv to what extent the fertility of
the soil can be increased, I rerer to a state.
ment in the last Patent Office Report. In
the year 1850, there were nine competitors
for the premium cornt crops of Kentucky,
each of whom cultivated ten acres. Trheir
average'crop was about 122 bushels per
are. At that time, the average crop of
wheat per acre in the harvest of Great Bri
tan on soil cultivated for centuries was
about double that produced on the virgin
soil of Ohio. Why is this! Simply be
cause British farmers are educated men and
apply work wisely. They pay back to the
earth whiat they borrow; they endeavor by
every means in- their power to' enrich their
ground and in turn it enriohes them. If our
farmers instead of laboring to double their
acres, would labor to double their crops,
they wvould find it a vast saving of time and
soil, and an increase of profits.
Many of themi never think of digging 10
inches into the soil, unless they have dream
ed- about a crock of gold hidden in the
earth;~but if they would set about the work
of digging in earnest, every man would find
his crock of gold without the aid of dreamt
We have great advantage over British
farmers in the fact that our farmiers nearly
all hold the lands which' they cultivate in
fee simple, while in England they are chiefly
tenants hiring the land of the nobility, 'pay.
ing enormous rents to the proprietors, be
sides heavy taxes to the government. Taxes
here are comparatively light, and our far.
mers are their own landlords. Hence they
have been able to pay three 'fofds wages for
labor to those in Europe, and the cost of
transportation and yet undersell the British
farmers in their own market.
THEn leading brewer of Buffalo in prepar
ing to close his business on the Fourth of
July, was heard to say; "Selling liquor
is an infernal mean business. No man knows
how me.n it is till ho has tgiven it un."
Success to the jolly old firmer,
Who sighs at the tail of the plow,
The monlarch of-prairie and forest,
'Tis only to God hemay bow.
He is surely a fortunate fellow,
He raises his bread and his cheese :
And though bard is his labor in summer,
In winter he lives at his easb.
Whenthe reign of-winter is broken
-And spring oozes to -gladden and bless ;
When thefrogs iii the meadow are sporting,
And the robinis buildint her nest
The farmer wallrthato iis labor,
And manly an . is his tread,
And he scatters " e seed for the harvest
That yields to the nations their bread.
His banks are all't ed by nature,
Their credits ard ample and sure ;
His clerks never slopeilith deposits,
Pursued by the Aurse of the poor.
His stocks are the best in the market;
His shares are thebsares of the plow ;
They hing the bright gold to his coffers,
And pleasure and health to his brow.
When his crops are gathered and sheltered,
Wheq his cattle are snug in the fold ;
He site himself down by the fireside
And laughs at the tempest and cold.
A stranger totpride and ambition,
His duty he strives to fulfill
Determined whatever betides him,
To let the world jog as It will.
His trust in Him who has given
The seasons, the sunshine and rain,
Who-has promised "seed time and harvest,"
So long as the earth shall remain.
And if from his duties he wander,
Led on by his venturesome will,
Through life and its changing relationis,
God's Providence follows him still.

Inever rested day or night.

T HIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the Sara
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-irising from a torpid stute
of the Liver, or impure state, of the lilood.
. 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 at
healthy action in the Liver, and by freeing the blood
from its impurities. ..
For children. it is a great preventive of worms
and supercedes . the necessity of giving them so
much worm medicine; at the same time it improvet
their general health. -,
A better and more useful medicine cannot-be in
