this oat as being a very excellent kind. It
grows taller on thin land than any other
oat known, often reaching to the height of
eight feet. The straw is as good as that of
any other kind, and yields an abundant crop
of grain. Those who have seen it and are

THE UMBP lE,
WE hope our readers will read attentiyely
the remarks of our cortespondent-"FARX.
ER," upon the Oregon Pea. "FARMER,"
makes a plain unvarnished statement of facts
with regard to the cultivation and success
of this pea which is so generally believed to
be a "humbug." It is too often the casethat,
when a new variety of any of the .crops,
whether of grain. or cotton, is introduced to
the notice of planters, that the mere opinion
of the incredulous brands it as a humbug,
when the practical experiments of more solid
men are entirely disregarded. Those. who
are unwilling to give themselves the trouble
of the experiment necessary to test the value
of any pew variety, are, too often, first to
cry humbug ! h1niunig! !
Facts alone'can be relied on, and "FARM
ER" has-as all honest men should do
given us the facts upon 'whicl is founded his
opinion of the Oregon pea.
. - BLACI BLAST IN OATS.
THE Oat crop is.one of great value to the
farmer, and as all oat-crops are more or less
injured by the blast, it may be interesting to,
our readers, to learn how this disease may
be prevented. As to the. cause 'and, origin
of the blast we know nothing but what we
have learned from the various speculations
of those men, who give to their brethren the
benefit of their experience abd researches
in agricultural science. Such. is the ingrati
tude of the human' heart, that such 'men are
too often sneered at for their benevolent in
tentions and their humble efforts to enlighten
and beneft their brother farmers,-are ridi
culed as the humbuggery of book farming.
Whatever may be'the cause of blast, we all
know that the injury, sustained by the oat
crop from its pernicious effects, amounts to
a large proportion of the yield of grain, and
a great injury to the straw as rough food for
stock. If the oat crop is so. materially in
jured by. blast, its prevention is a very im
portant'matter, and should engage the atten
tion of farmers. We were informed a few
days since, by a very successful farmer, of
a simple remedy for the blast, and as -it has
been tried and experimented upon, and
proved effectual, we recommend it to our
readers as a. valuable recipe.
Soak for twenty-four hours your oat seed
in a solution of Blue Stone, the same as for
smut in wheat. "Try all things and hold
fast to that which is good."

When you speak to a-cotton planter about
raising his own meat, and enough to supply
his, doctor, merchant, blacksmith, &c., he
will, without hesitation tell you that it will
not pay. Hie can make more by planting
cotton, even if he has to buy his own meat,
or the greater part of it. This we admit is
true, wvhen cotton ranges at better prices
than at present, provided he has to feed.his
hogs exclusively on corn and peas. .But we
do not admit the' necessity of this process of
making. bacon. There is a much cheaper
process than this opened* to all the planters
of this country, and -a better one thau to
make-cotton, and pay freight to Savannah,
and then pay freight on hogs from'Tendes
see. Some of our cotton planters h'ave long
since got a partial insight into this plan, and
the result has been that they are much bet
ter off than those who buy their own bacon.
The* most thrifty planters in Hancock, are
those who raise their own flour and pork,.at
the 'risk 9f raising less cotton, and yet there
.is a -plan by which they can raise it much
cheaper than they do.
Every farmer should have- a hog .range
attached to his farm. It should have a good
stream if running water, and might-emibrace
from ten to one hundred acres, according to
the amount of pork to be raised. The major
part should be a forest which would answer
the double purpose of raising timber for
wood and acorns for, your hogs. 'All the
undergrowth should be cut out and burned.
The dead trees cut down and split for wood
and rails, as well as all the thick growth of
saplings, pines, gums, dogwoods, anid in
fact all but oak, hickories, walnuts, mulber
ries, persimmons? &c. The oaks. should
not stand thick, but let in..plenty of air and
sun, and they will bear much better. One
oak standing. thus isolated will bear as much
as a half a dozen crowded.. Particular at
tention should be paid to persimmon trees,
in saving all that might bear'. They 'will
prove or immense value.
Now for the orchard part. .As many as
you please. Plant plum trees that will ripen
in May, June and July and somn oven later,
in squares six feet each wva,amd' thg wili
soon over the ground.' Set ont poach trees
tenfeet each way, of such kinds as'-will ripen
from .June to October, and (fy and plow
them twice a year if possible, and 'you will
have fruit that will gladden the heart of a
por-ker-. Farmers .who will begin this fall
by transplanting all'the volunteer peach trees
about their premises will, in three years, have
'a ie orchard for their hogs.
With such a hog range, the farmer would
have but little need to make drafts upon his
rib, only in quantities to keep his hogs tame.
The acorns; hickory nuts, &d., woulk keep
them during the winter and spring, and
peaches, with the 'gleaning of 'the -oat and
wheat fields, *rduld keep them till falL Then
the pea crop and the persimmons would
bring them up to acorn time again. Pota
toes,.ground peas, turnips, mulberries, black
berries, muscadines, &c., would help, and
the result would be, instead of sendinag off
bndeds annually to Kentucky and Ten..
hessee for pork, it would return into your
own pockets in various ways. You would
not only save your-bacon, but you would -in
crease the value of your farm, the amount of
such a farm, with no such appendage. Who

Mysu5 Enrrons :-.."Humbug," cries
one;-" Wont do," cries anothe;-" No,
I'll be blamed if it will,"-.cries a third.- Such
are the expressions I hear uttered- whenever
the Oregon Pea is mentioned ; but-these peo
ple know nothing about the Oregon pea
they have never tried it, and their decision is,
thefore, not to be depended-on. -
The Oregon Pea is doing better with me
this year than any other kind, and -i. have
three other kinds- planted, all having an
equal chance with the Oregon. Whilst the
other kinds are taming yellow and shedding
.their leaves, the Oregon is green, flourishing,
broad-spreading and literally bowed down
with fruit. I have now one of the best pas
tures I ever saw, from the Oregon pea,
planted about the first of June in a corn field,
which had only one plowing and one hoeing
after the peas were planted. And I hive the
Georgia black pea-one of the best bearers
I have ever tried--planted on good land and
having in every respect an equal chance with
the Oregon, which presents quite a poor
prospect for a pasture.. "Talk enough,"

For the Advertiser.
Mass. Eurroas:-Your brother of the
"Inner Temple," had something to say, a
week or two ago, about some large ears of
corn that somebody. had sent him from some..
where. He said that one ear contained 1200
grains, which is certainly a pretty large ear;
but, 'if I am not greatly mistaken, I have
counted over 1300 grains on one ear, though
not this year.
Enclosed I send you a few grains of a
kind, of which one grain this year produced
_3,200! I consider- that a wonderful yield
and hard to beat, and I hereby challenge
your brother to beat it. He may go to the
"Red river bottoms," if he likes.
A few grains of this corn was sent to me
in a letter from the North, last winter, where
they raise it for bread; but I don't think it
" will do well here-it is too far South for it.
The grain is so soft and floury that the we
vii gets into it before'it is ripe.
Higgins' Ferry, Oct. 4, 1855.
REMARKs:-We are under many obliga
tions to "FARMER" for the seed be has been
kind enough to send us and we will try and
keep themn upon file for the next planting
time. 'I he speciinen sent, we judge to be
identical with the variety which was adver
tised by some one in Alabama at a' cent a
grain, which was wvarranted to yield from
ix to -eight ears to the hill, or the same
amount from each grain. We verily thought
that it was a lwmbug; but we have since
seen it growing at Col. H UIET's, and it has,
so far, fully come up to the representations
made by the grower. As to its softness and
liability to be destroyed by wevils "FAEXWn"
may be correct; but even this defect might
.be obviated by mixing or drossing it with our
flint varieties. It is possible that our climate
might have the effect of hardening the grain ;
if so, we would prefer planting it to itself,
in order to retain its prolific qualities.
IIlJIES, TREIR PRICES, .&c.
TnlE exorbitant prices demanded by our
Kentucky neighbors, for mules for the- last
fewv years has become a subject for serious
consideration to every Southern planter.
Every year the price of mules rises without
any regard to the price of cotton. I saw a
fine gang of mules a few days since passing
through the country, picked out a good look
ing one and asked the price-two hundr-ed
dollars--can planters afford to use mules at
two hundred dollars! I think not, and it
becomes them to look around for a remedy
or substitute. .
In order to remedy the evil it is only ne
cessary for each planter in the gtate to raise a
mule every year-lu three years the demand
for mules here would totally cease except
for a fewv large planters-I have resolved
for one to commence the system-a friend
who has made the experiment,.and who has
. a fine team of Georgia raised mules, informs
me that they did not cost him up to two
years old, more than it would cost to raise
and fatten a two year old hog. He assures
me that they are more haiy, equally active,
and stand' the climaste better than the Ken
The system of forcing niules forward by
every means that can. be devised so as to at
tain an unnatural size, has rendered the Ken.
tucky much less set-viceable than formerly.
They are brought to market at two or three
year old, placed immediately at hard work
and either die premature, or become too slow
for the plow. In a few years their places
must be supplied; these go through the same
'process and with the same result. How long
can this game be played, where the planter
is always the loser, it becomes us all to con
Again, I propose. the horse as a substititte
for the mule, or rather. to restore the horse
to the position from which-he has been driv
en. I am aware that for the rough usage of
negroes and for the wagon, mules are regard
ed as preferable. BItt for this rough usage
there is no necessity,~and in these days of
railroads the amount of wagoning done by
the farm mules is comparatively small and
for those planters who reside on their farms,
or whose plow team is sometimes forced to
do duty in the carriage or buggy, there is no
excuse for using a mule. Indeed I have
looked with amazement on the number of
muales now used iii buggys and. pleasure
carriages, and when I have seen a fine car
riage filled with pretty girls and the farmer's
wife, drawn through the streets by a pair of'
braying muls, I have- regarded'him asg a fit
subject for a commission of lunacy. But in
dependently of the looks, a Georgia ralsed
horse which is accustomed to. thre climate,
and has been raised-on the scraps, is as good
as a mule any where. He will do. mote
plowing, will pull more in a wagon, and then
is better than a miule to ride to church-per
haps I ought to have said drie to church;
for in this age every body, overseers, emn
ployers and all, fide in buggies..
But an irresistable argument in favor of
the use of the horse, is the fact that if the
exclusive use of mules for all work continue
much longe, te breed of honrses and rmles
will be lost. It is to this cause-the
that with the male his r$ce stops-tha
high price of mules is now mainly attril
ble. If the system cont' , the scarci
brood mares will conti istill more t

prices must continue to rise. A retor
