MESSRS. COLTER & SCOOTER, Editors.
.V Let idle Ambition her baubles pursue,
While Wisdom.looks down with disdain,
The home of the farmer has charms ever new,
Where health, peace and competence reign."
RENARD has been received but has been
missplaced, (in SCOOTER'S pocket perhaps
away up yonder in the cotton patch) it shall
appear in our iiext.
WE have been blessed with a small show.
er of rain lately, but our planters generally,
are wanting a few more of the same sort.
FRESH AND DRIED FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.
THE relative value of fre. undried fruits
and vegetables and those which have been
dried to prevent decay, is a matter of some
importance. In an article headed "Fruit
better than Physic," copied into our last
issue, from the Valey F'armer, the writer
says: " The old fashioned mode of preserv.
ing [by drying) wilf not answer; the nature
and constitution of the fruits are changed
by the process, and'all their anti-scorbutic
virtues destroyed. The fruits must be fresh."
If this statement were true, dried fruits of
-all kindj Would be nearly valueless; but it
is not true; and therefore, well dried,.ripe
peaches, pears, apples, plums, cherries,.
grapes, figs, stawberries, and other delicious
fruits, are worth to the public far more than
it.costs to preserve them in this way for
future use. If wisely and properly con
docted, drying changes very slightly, or not
at all, the saccharine and acid compounds
in the nost delicate fruits. Their aroma
and flavor may suffer, while their prophy
lactic, and nutritive- properties are rather
concentrated than dissipated, by desiccation.
The best way to remove the surplus wa.
ter in fruits and vegetables, whose presence,
by giving freedom of motion to the chemi
cal elements in these organized substances,
favors their rotting, is a question to which
the writer has paid much attention. In put.
ting up garden vegetabes in France for the
consumption of its army in the Crimea, the
water is remo.ved by great pressure. Some
of the nutritive elements in cabbage, beets,
turnip' and-potatoes, are lost in this process,
whether cooked or Pot, yet concentration,
to favor distant transportation, is attained.
Upon the whole, we doubt whether the prac
tice has any advantage over heat-drying.
At all events, sooner than lose, as many did
last year, a fair crop of Irish potatoes by
prematurs decay, we shall try drying them
cut initoislices like peaches and apples. Sweet
potatoes have rotted badly in this neighbor
hood within the last few months. Is the
vital principle in bulbous roots and tubers
necessarily destroyed by drying any more
thnttin the seeds of grain and orchard
It is known that some bulbs and tubers
_revive and growv after having been dried. Is
the list exhausted ?
It is for eating rather than for seed, that
fruits and vegetables ought to be dried in
the most economical and thorough manner.
1in a small way for home consumption, the
best collection that we have lately seen was'
p~ut up by Mrs. R. Peters, of Atlanta. It
embraced sweet corn, Linma beans, okra,
tomatoes and other vegetables, and fruits
preserved in the usual way--in sugar, bran
dy, and vinegar, nicely .sealed to exclude
all atmosphere air. English marrowvfat peas
and others, dried like sweet corn make an
.excellent winter dish.
The plan recommended by Mdr. Nelson,
of keeping snap beans in salt, is worthy of
more extended practice-the samples sent
us having proved excellent in all respects.
Recipes for keeping all perishable commo
*dities, sent to the Cultivator, are always
thankfully received and published. Fruits
and vegetables are doubtless .better, so far
as the preservation of their volatile princi
*plea is concerned, if dried in the shade than
when dried in'th sun, The direct rays of

color and induce many other changes, are

A friend has handed us the following val

pairing is at hand we cannot serve our read.
era better than by laying it before them.
Much is said of the brilliant stucco white
wash on the east of the President's house,
,t Washington. The following is a receipt
ror making it, with some additional in-prove
ments learned by experiment. Take half a
bushel of nice unslacked lime, slack it with
boiling water, covering it in the process to
keep'in the steam. Strain the liquor through
a fine sieve or strainer, and add to it a peck
)f clean salt, previously well dissolved in
warm water, three pounds of ground rice,
;round to a thin paste, and stirred and boil
ed hot; half a pound of Spanish whiting,
Lnd a pound of clean glue, which has been
)reviously dissolved by first soaking it well
wd then hanging over a slow fire in a small
cettle within a large one filled with water.
Add five gallons of hot water to the whole
nixture, stir it well, and let it stand a few
lays, covered from the dirt. It should be
aut on quite hot, for this purpose it can be
ept in a kettle on a portable furnace. It
a said that about a pint of this mixture will
:over a square yard upon this outside of.a
iouse, if properly applied. :Brushes, more
)rless small, may be used, according to the
ieatness of the job required. It retains its
irilliancy for many years. There is noth
ng of the kind that will compare with it
ither for outside or.inside walls. Coloring
natter may be put in, and made of any
;hade you like. Spanish brown stirred in it,
vill make it red, or a pink more or less deep,
tccording to quantity, A delicate tinge of
his is very pretty for inside walls. Finely
ulverized common clay, well mixed up with
spanish brown, before it is stirred into the
nixture, makes it a lilac color. Lampblack
and Spanish brown mixed together, produces
a reddish stone color. Lampblack, in mod
rate quantities, makes a slate color, very
mitable for the outside of buildings. Yel
vow ocre stirred in makes a yellow wash,
nut chrome goes further and makes a pret
ier color. In all these cases, the darkness
)f the shade will be determined by the
juantity of the coloring mattei used. It is
lifficult to make a rule, because the tastes
are very different; it would be best to try
xperiments on a shingle'hnd let it dry. I
am told that green must not be mixed with
lime. The lime destroys the color, and the
color has an effect on the white wash which
makes it crack and peal. When walls have
been badly smoked and you wish to have
them clean and white, it is well to squeeze
indigo plentifqally through a bag into the
whole mixture. If a larger quantipy than
five gallons would be wvanted, the same pro.
portions should be observed.-Sumter Dem

THE CHINA TrJEE.-A writer in the Soil
f the South recommends plainting the Chi
na tree along our railroads to be used for

lies nine inches in diameter made of the
China tree would last for a century. And
or marine purposes, the wood is invaluable;
neither worms nor barnacles will interfere
with it. In illustration of this fact, we re
nember some years ago, a gentleman living
>n the Pee Dee had a box made of the
China tree filled with rice, which remained
or years free from wevils or any other worm,
and just as sound as when first put in the
nox, no doubt preserved from the attacks of
.nsects by -some peculiar property in the
wood.-We will adid that if the berries of
;he China tree be steeped in water, and the
water poured over tender plants, invested
with b'ugs and worms, it will drive them
nway. The tree is of quick growth, too,
and good for fuel; and might be profitably
lanted upon waste places near the home.

To ExTRACT GREAsB FROM CLOTH.
The following is infallible:
To sixteen ounces of rectified spirits of
wine add ten grains of carbonate of potash
'pure,) half an ounce of essential oil of ber
gamot, and one ounce of sulphuric either;

Apply with a piece of sponge, soaking the
loth thoroughly wben the grease is not re
lent. The mixtgire ergits a pecetliarly fra
rant odor, and being a fluid soap, claenaical
