Masas. EDITORS :--I will with pleasure
accept not only the Millet seed you speak
o4but any other kind you may wish ex
At present I have only one kind of Millet
.'- Egyptian. 'In the year 1853, I was so
fortunate as to obtain seed enough of the
Ilan Millet to plant a quarter of an acre;
but the Spring was so dry that it did not get
a stie 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
h144 been inable to find it. Perhaps I gave
the wrong name.
Hosvever, although I lost the seed of it, I.
had ample opportunity to test -its valuable.
as. as food for Stock, and I can say with
tii, tliat for hogs I have never tried any
thing better. Here is the result - of an ex
perimae't I made with it in the year above
.named. I had a gang.of twelve shotes, ten
months old. About the middle of July,'I
turned sirof them into a first rate oat pas
turothe 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
ter eondition every way ; which advantage
thejimaintained until they were killed, about
a year And four months afterwards-weigh
ing-mnch heavier than the others. This is a
stmbbisi fact, which no carolling or sophis
try can get round.
-But, gentlemen, as a friend of mine would
s there has been talk enough on this
ubjet... He who wont believ~e now, would
not, thiough he were to see with his own
Hliggins' Ferry,'Sept.S8, 1855.
The ilowing circular has been issued by
the Executive Committee of the State Agri
cultural Society, and forwiarded throughout
the State :
UO'o the District Societies and Citizens of
-the State of South Carolina :
The undersigned, who were appointed an
Eetive Committee, at the recent Meeting
of the Delegates, rrom various portions of
our State, to form a State. Agricultural So.
ciety, would respectfully suggest to you the
iupostane of such an object, and earneed~y
request of you to call on the citizens of your
.sepetive Districts to unite and form Din
4ct Agricultual Societies, that shall co-op.
erate with the State Society in collecting
usefli nformaftion and disseminating it among
the people at large. We also propose, to
-fier annually suitable premiums for the best
managed farms; for the most approved breeds
ot~tock; and for the implements of husban
igy best adapted to our agriculture; also
" for -the mecanical, artistic and domestic
productions or our citizens ;" and we hope
bythe stimulus thus afforded, and the rival
ry thus excited, to bring about a gradual
and steady improvement, not only in agni
,cltural, but in all of the industrial pursuits
of our State ; and wve trust that every citi
enof South Carolina, from the humblest
to the highest, will zealously enlist in so
inportant and patriotic an undertaking.
To accomnplisliso laudable an object, it Is
evident we must have the means, and those,
too,.of a .permanent character. We pro.
.psew, therefore, to raise, by individual sub
aserption, the sum of twventy-five thousand
dollars, ($25,000,) and to petition our Leg
islature for a suitable amount df monley, to
-be invested in stocks paying regular dividends
and e-. use annually only the income rrom
'such 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 of
twenty-five dollars (825) each, and that the
differedt District Soci les shall pay annual
lythte sum of five do ar into the Treasury
f the State Society. From these three
sources we hope to raise abundant means.
At the late Agricultural Meeting in Colum
'a, there were ninety Delegates who be
ame life members, and raised in a few min
utes over-two thousand dollars (82,000;)
nd we have every reason to believe that
the itisees-of :the District of Richland and
the tow~n of e lumbia, will raise a liko
amount; and ait the Trows Council will
-also miake- liberal donations, to the Society,
by providing -the grounds -and suitable ac
commodationls for the exhibition of stock,
implemets of agricutlture, and the product
oF the mechanic arts. With such bright
posets before us, we entreat every one to
use his -eartions to form District Societies,
*to become himself a life member, of the State
Agricultural 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 Agricults
ral Meeting. that is to take place in Colum
bia on the-sesonid Tuesday of November
iext; sud'ice most. earnestly request each
member of the State Society to be punctual
in his attenidance-fer it is not only by an
interchange oif feelings and opinions on the
ubjec of agriculture, that we can hope to
gve t6 it thatimportanse : to 'which it is so
~sy entitled, and to sexeite -that laudable
spirit og~ rivalry among our District Sdeie
tie by 'whieh they will becofbe honorable
comptitOrs in advancing the prospergof
their respective Districts, 'and the tneads of
'euopP and increasing the .agricultural
-eotS of the whole State. . We also

ber I96 t appo int a Secretary and
Treasurer to the State Society, wvho shall

communications from the District Societies,
and publish all that shall be worthy of publi.
cation in a weekly or monthly agricultural
journal, to be under the control and direc
tion of the Executive Committee-which
journal shall be sent gratuitously to each
life member of the State.Agricultural Socie
ty. Thus, you will perceive that the Dis.
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
earnestly appeal to you to aid as in carrying
out our laudable purposes.
All of which is respectfully, submitted, on
behalf of the Executive Committee.

ABBEVILLE, 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 ?"-Sontk Carolinian,
LASTING EFFECT OF BONES AND ANIMAL.
MATTER.-We have seen a crop of turnips,
by their increased luxuriousness, mark the
land where thirty years previous about one
hundred bushels of crushed bones had been
applied per acre. rhe Rural New- Yorker
" We know of a field in an adjoining coun
ty that has been crbpped 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
tled, was indented with graves within six
feet of each other, all over its surface. Trho
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 he seen mingled with the soil, and, sad
as it may seenm, 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 fewv inches
deeper, and turned up a few more Indians.
HoxsEs.-MIany advocates for thorough
brds .remuark that they hate short-back
horses; but [ take it there are few who ever
saw a long-backed one which was fit for
anything else but striding over half a mile
of turf, and on this' account I have always
avoided general length, as it is termed, in
breeding hunters; if, howvever, 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 thick
horse instead of a long one; such are com
pact horses, and not only calculated to car
ry weight, but take care of themselves into
the bargain ; their very formation and short
quick action enabling them not only to gal.
op smoothly over ridge and furrow, but to
jump like bucks, and to chuck themselves
right into the middle of the next county
when you come unawa~res upon doubled
dithe, or an traplike description of fence.

New Literary and Political Journal,
STO . rUuEZiiD AT COLUBIA, a. C.
THE Undersigned, late Editor of 2'e South
Carolinian and Columbia Banner, proposes
to publish, in the city of Columbia, a Literary, P.
litical and News Journal, to be called
In making this annoneement, I -am aware -Abhat
I propose to engage in an enterprise not free from
difficulties; but These I will endeavbr 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 con
ducted with a view to render it atleast equal to any
ever published at the South. The cboioostselections
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
- - POLITICAL JOURNAL,
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 acts and doings of the
various political organizations. All news worth
giving toits 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 political affhirs, to in
duce them to'sustain with vigor 't 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 asI receive a'sufilient number of
subscribers to ensure its success. Send forward
W 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.

TAmt'parilla which grows in the Southern States and

Its effect upon the system in all cases in which Sar
saparilla is indicated is wonderftf . I.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
galive or laxative. It not only mildly moves the.
Bowels, but givestone 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 supercedes the necessity f giving them so
much worm medicine; at the same time it improves
their general health.
