Massus. EDIToR:--I will with pleasure
accept not only the Millet seed you speak
o1 but any other kind you may wish ex
A present I have only one kind of Millet
41w Egyptian. In the year 1853, I was so
fortunate as to obtain seed enough of the
laian Millet to plant a quarter of an acre;
but the Spring was so dry that it did not get
a start until July, and the Fall being early
it did not mature, and I did not save a seed.
Since then, I have sought for it in every
seed store of note in the United States, but
haii- been linable to find it. Perhaps I gave
the wrong name.
-However, although I lost the seed of it, I
had ample opportunity to test its valuable.
tgs. as food for Stock, and I can say with
tnlh that for hogs I have never tried any
thing better. Here is the result of an ex
peiment I made with it in the year above
.uamed. I had a gang.of twelve shotes, ten
months old. About the middle of July, I
tared sirof them into a first rate oat pas
tare,-the remaining six,- without choice,-I
kept out and fed them with the green stalks
of this Millet, and nothing else. About a
month afterwards, I turned them altogether,
and the difference 'between them was clear
at a. glance. Those fed upon the Millet
were considerably larger add in much bet
teoondition every way ; which advantage
they maintained until they were killed, about
a year and four months afterwards--weigh
ig-mach heavier than the others. This is a
stabboii.. fact, which no carolling or sophis
try can get round.
-But, gentlemen, as a friend of mine would
say there has been talk enough on this
suject.. He who wont believ~e now, would

The following circular has been issued by
the Executive Committee of the State Agri
cultural Society, and forwarded throughout
the State :
To the District Societies and Citizens of
the State of Southi Carolina :
The undersigned, who were appointed an
FE/xecutive Committee, at the recent Meeting
of the Delegates, from various portions of
our State, to form a State. Agricultural So
ciety, wvould respectfully suggest to you the
imotsne rof such an object, and earnestly
request of you to call on the citizens of your
-respeitive Districts to unite and form Dis
4tict Agricultual Societies, that shall co-op
erate with the State Society in collecting
useful informgz~ion and disseminating it among
the people at large. We also propose, to
offer annually suitable premiums for the best
managed farms; for the most approved breeds
o~tock ; and for the implements of husban
dy best adapted to our agriculture; also
" for -the mecanical, artistic and domestic
productions of our citizens ;" and w~e hope
bythe stimulus thus afforded, and the rival
ry thus excited,. to bring about a gradual
and steady improvement, not only in agrn
,eptural, but in all of the industrial pursuits
of our State ; and wve trust that every citi
zen' of South Carolina, from the humblest
to the highest, will zealously enlist in so
important and patriotic an undertaking.
To accomplislf so laudable an object, it is
evident we must have the means, and those,
toorOf a permanent character. We pro.
~pose, therefore, to raise, by individual sub
raeripion, the sum of twenty-five thousand
dollars, ($25,000,) and to petition our Leg
isature for a suitable amount 6f monley, to
-be invested in stocks paying regular dividends
an'to use annually only the income from
s ur-h investment. To raise the individual
subscription-, it is proposed that citizens in
te different Districts, who are disposed to
join the State Agricultural Society, shall
become life- members upon the payment or
twenty-five dollars ($25) each, arnd that the
different District Sociqies shall pay annual
ly-thte sum of five do ar into the 'Treasury
of the State Society. From these three
sources we hope to raise abundant mneans.
At the late Agricultural Meeting in Colum
bia, there were ninety Delegates w~ho be
ame life members, and raised in a few min
tes over-two thousand dollars (82,000 ;)
and we have every reason to believe that
thka citiees-of :the District of Richiand and
the town of Columbia, will raise a like
amount; and that the Trown Council will
aso nmake' liberal donations to the Society,
by pr-oviding - the gr-ounds - and suitable ac
commodatiOns for the exhibition of stock,
impements of agriculture, ad the product
*o Ahe mechanic arts. With such bright.
.prospects before us, we entreat every one to.
use his egertions to form District Societies,
to hr-comnehinself a life member, of the State
Agricutral Society, and to procure as many
other life members as can possibly be oh.
taed. Above all, we invite each District
Society to send Delegates to the Agricultu
ral Meeting, that is to take place in Colum
hia on the second Tuesday of November
~ext; and we most earnestly request each
member of the State Society to be punctual
in his attendaice-fer it is not only by an
*interchange of feelings and opinions on the
~nbjet of agriculture, that we can hope to
give to it that importance to.which. it is so
ustly .entitled, and to excite'-that laudable
sirit of, rivalry among our District Socie
tie by ~whieh they will becoftie honorable
competitOrs in advancing the prospeig of
their respeciive Distriiets, and the means of
deyeloping and increasing the .egricultural
reo-~S of th whole State. . We also
roce.soon as a permanenit for.d. shall
pr iI; to appoint a. Secretary and
Treasurer to the State Society, who shall
azk carga of a". cf thv: rcp')t iw! c oh'r
communications from the District Societies,
and publish all that shall be worthy of publi
cation in a weekly or monthly agricultural
journal, to be nuder the control and direc
tion of the Executive Committewhich
journal shall be sent gratuitously to each
life member of the State.Agricultural Socie
ty. Thus, you will perceive that the Die..
trict and State Societies will be made to co
operate most harmoniously-the one in col
lecting information, and the other in publish.
ing and diffusing it. We therefore, most
earnest-y appeal to you to aid us in carrying
out our laudable purpose.
All of which is respectfully, submitted, on
behalf of the Executive Committee.

ABBEVILL, THE BANNER DISTRICT.-A
friend has just written to a member of the
Executive Committee of the State Agricul
tural Society, that Abbeville, since the re
turn of her delegates, had subscribed five
hundred dollars to the society. A. commit
tee, consisting of Dr. Barratt, Capt. Byrd
and Col. Marshall, have agreed to canvass
the district, and already the citizens of the
beautiful villages of Greenwood, Due West
and Lowndesville, have tendered barbacues,
in order to bring the agriculturists together.
In Abbeville this great movement originated,
all her delegates to the Convention became
life members, and now she has evidenced
her devotion to the good cause by affixing
to her banner a motto of speaking dollars,
which-tells the proper tale. A district so
noted for richness-of soil, thrift of her agri
culturists, prodigality in her hospitality, and
whose true intelligence is evidenced by her
acts, can only be properly appreciated when
she is properly known. She has in her bor
ders more lovely villages, she was first to
establish the most noted private seats of
learning in the State, and now in this great
industrial movement, she is where her enter
prise places her, at the flag staff. When
will her sister districts "face the music and
fall into ranks ?"-South Carolinian,

" We know of a field in an adjoining coun
ty that has been cropped for thirty years,
and is now in a high state of fertility. The
surrounding fields are nothing like it, and
with similar cultivation would by this time
have been utterly impoverished. The for
mer is the site of an old Indian burying
ground, and when-.the country wvas first set
tied, was indented with graves within six
feet of each other, all over its surface. The
dead were buried in a sitting posture,. not
over two 'feet below the surface, and the
writer, when a boy, filled his pockets many
a time with beads and arrowheads, turned
by the desecrating plowshare. The half
decayed bones of the aborigines are this day
to be seen mingled with the soil, and, sad
as it may seem, furnish food to successive
crops of grain and grass. If the soil at any
time gave signs of impoverishment, the occu
pant merely run the plowshare a few inches
deeper, and turned up a fewo more Indians.

anything else but striding over half a mile

avoided general length, as it is termed, in
breeding hunters ; if, however, there must
be length, let it neither be in the spine of a
stallion, or in liis legs, but horizontally, or
right through him. We then get a thieki
horse instead of a long one; such are com
pact horses, and not only calculated to car

THE Undersigned, late Editor of The South

to publish, in the city of Columbia, a Literary, Pe

In making this announcement, I am aware Ahat
I propose to engage in an enterprise not free from
difficulties; but these I will endeavor to provide
against, by securing a Subscription List that will
place the paper beyond the reach of failure. South
Carolina can richly support, at her Capital, a leading
Literary and Political Weekly Journal, and to her
people I now issue this Prospectus, feeling assured
the enterprise will be sustained, and that they will
support a Home Journal of the character of that
now proposed. As a
For the home circle, the Examiner will be eon
ducted with a view to render jt atleast equal to any
ever published at the South. The choioostselections
of English and American Literatye will be made
for its columns, and a number of able Contributors
will be secured. I will endeavor, in this department,
to make it a journal worthy of the patronage and
steady support of the people of this State and of the
South. As a
The Examiner will abide by the old land-marks of
the State Rights Democracy. Independent of na
tional parties, it will take a stand as a faithful co
operator in the great work of maintaining Southern
Rights and promoting Southern union. It will be
the organ of no political party-the exponent of no
political creed-which has not for one of its cardinal
principles " the Equality of the South in the Union,
or Independence out of it."'- This is no new faith,
but one which South Carolina has long and earnest
ly contended for.
The Examiner will contain the latest News, For
eign and Domestic, received up to the hour of publi
cation. It will give full and correct Market Reports
and Prices Current. Our readers in the country
may rely on strict attention being paid to this impor
tant feature.of a newspaper. It will give full and
accurate reports of the Proceedings of the Legisla
ture and of Congress, and the aets and doings of the
various political organizations. All news worth
giving to its readers will be carefully culled for its
SIZE AND STYLE. --
The Examiner will be one of the largest Weekly
Journals in the Southern States, printed with new
and elegant type, on fine white paper, and issued in
large quarto form of eight pages, containing forty
columns of interesting reading matter. It will be
the handsomest paper ever published in South
I have thus given an outline of the principal fea
tures of the Examiner. Carolinians or the people
of the South ought to need no further appeal, in
view of the present aspect of polit' l affairs, to in
duce them to sustain with vigor efficiency their
own Press and Literature.
Two Dollars per annum, payable in advance.
The first year's payment will be required on the
receipt of the first number of the paper, which will
be issued so soon as-I receive a'sufficient number of
subscribers to ensure its success. Send forward
g Postmasters who will be so kind as to for
ward me names of subscribers will confer a favor,
and will receive a copy of the Examiner without
charge. Address me at this place.

THE THOROUGH BRED HORSE
WAILL stan.l the ensuing season ,
V at MY STABLE about one
mile from Edgefield C. H., at $15
the season and $25 insurance. All
Mares sent will be considered by the season, unless
some instructions to the contrary shall accomnpany
them. Season to end 10th November.
Gamubie was bred by Col. BAanY, of Galatin
Tennessee, and was six years old last Spring. H<
was sired by Imp. Sovereign, his dam was Celerity
by Imp. Leviathan. Celerity's dami was Patty Putl
by Paeolet; Patty Puff's dam was Rosa Clack.
For Pedigree and performances GA MBLE will
compare with the best horses of Ihis day. He corn
bines strength and action with fleetness and endu
ranc. H~e ran in Charleston in February 1853 the
best race of tw~o mile heats ever run over the course,
and but fur an unavoidable accident would have
distinguished himself as a four miler.
gg I will feed and pasture Mares at forty-ive
cents a day, but will not take upotn myself any re
sponibility for accidents or escapes.

THIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the Saraa
-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 wonderfV 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 iur the Liver, and by freeing the blood
from its impurities.
For children. it is a great pr ventive of worms
and supercedes the necessity .f 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 Edgeleld District, either for-profef
