are sorry to differ in opinion with our friend

any advantage in the Boyd's opening so
fast, all at once. We would prefer to have
cotton open as fast as it could be picked out,
but no faster. -Especially on the red hilla
of Cambridge, it would be a serious objece
tion for all the cotton to be open at once,
as the greater part of it would be, before it
could be picked out, on the ground-nankin
-died in the wool. But we know this va
riety to be well worthty the attention of out

them as a source of profit.

30YD'S EITRA PROLIFIC COTTON SEED.
MssMs EnTros:-As planting time is
approaching, it would he well that farmers
arrange their plans to the greatest possible
advantage. Some farmers contend that the
most essential requisite in ensuring a good
crop is a good stand, either in corn or cotton.
'That is certainly true; but in order to ensure
the greatest yield per acre, with equally
good stands, it is essentially necessary to
plant improvedl sced-seed that will, from
their prolific qualities, produce a double
yield from the same amount of weed or
To illustrate my position: you may plant
pop-corn and if you gather any thing at
all, it will be a small yield of pop-corn. This
rule will also hold good with regard to mean.
er varieties of cotton, wheat or any other
seeds. There are many varieties of improv
ed cottons, each one if which has its strenu
ous advocates; but of all the yarieties that
[have yet tried, or seen tried 'by others,
I give the preference to au improved cluster
cotton, well known in many portions of this
District, as "Boyd's Extra Prolife." Among
the many claims to superiority which this
variety possesses over all others, the first is,
that it can be crowded in the drill, and the
rows need not be wider than 30 or 36 inches
apart, either on up-lands or low-ground. If
your stand is thin or missing, it will throw
out branches at or near the ground, each
one of which w-ill bear a crop equal to an
ordinary stalk. This seems to be a provision
of nature and peculiar to this variety-thus
enabling it to mature a heavy yield either
in a crowded or in a thin stand.
In the second place, I do not pretend to
say that it will mature or commence making
more early than other varieties, but when it
" Just lay down the plow and the hoe
And throw away the fiddle and bow."
For it does certainly make faster than any
cotton that [ have ever had any thing to do
with, and when it commences to open it does
its work with telegraph speed. This I(con
ceive-to ho a great advanitage. It does not
open a few boils to day, a fewv another day,
or commence in July and hold on till Janua
ry, as is the case with other varieties. Its
last, but not least advantage is, it does not
shed tho squares or boils in rainy wveather
or in drouth. This is the main secret of its
prolfic qualities. It is like an old miser; it
makes all it can and holds on to all it makes.
Though in extreme* drouth some of the
squares dry up,yet it does not shed and fall
off, compared with other cottons.
I might mention its superior staple, its
rapid growth and small seed among its other
advantages, lbut those who wish to know
more of it, had better try it for their own
I hesitate not in saying that, from my ex
perience with this cotton, if planted on good
land, crowded in the drill, in rows at the
proper dIstance, and with good seasons and
cultivation, it will produce fromn 1500 to
2000 lbs per acre. In proof of the correct.
ness of my opinion (apparently extravagant)
I give you the net product of a small crop,
made last year, not three miles from Cam
bridge. Twenty-six acres produced 44,000
pounds of seed cotton, or about 1700
pounds per acre.
It has bees planted by several persons in
the neighborhood of Cambridge for two or
three years, and I have not seen the first one
who does not hold it in the highest repute.
One of these gentlemen, of mostunquestiona
ble judgment, told me, that he believed that
the Boyd Cotton would make, per acre,
from 300 to 500 lbs. more than any other
cotton now planted.
I think I had better stop now, for fear that
some may think that I only wish to puff
Boyd's Ex'tra Prolific beyond. its true merits.
It is not so; [ only write for the benefit of
my brother cotton plasters, and having giv
en them my honest opinion of the value of
this improved variety of cotton they may
take it for what it is worth. But try it, and
you, will be very likely to entertain the same
