MESSRS. COLTER & SCOOTER, Editors.
"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."
We have received a fine specimenof flour
from the mill of G. M. WEVEn, on Shaw's
Creek. Those who want a good article and
good turn-out can get it at this mill.
WE strolled down the Columbia Road a
week or so since to see the prospect for
crops. As we expected to see something
fine, we were not disappointed of course.
MR. H. J's cotton had a little too much
grass and rain.-Messrs. L's cotton and
corn pretty good, and must have had a large
crop of wheat judging from the acres sown.
PETER LNDSAY'S crop is decidedly the best
in that locality. Mr. B's crop of cotton and
corn though good, is not so good as last
year, but clean and well cultivated. Dr. R's,
cotton is decidedly good, clean, well nursed
and presents a decidedly healthy and fruitful
appearance-expects to make some corn
also-Dr. K's prospect not so encouraging,
distressingly healthy; but he studies. . Mr.
McC's crop shows work and its accompa
ning reward of fine cotton and shocks of
grain, provided it rains. WIDOW C's and
Uncle Jixur's are as good as the land will
allow. C. W's crops in keeping with the
rest-good and encouraging-his flock of
Cashmeres was the best we saw. Mr. L.
W's was well cultivated and. clean and in
fine growing condition. Mrs. M. W's plan
tation was a beautiful prospect of both cot
ton and corn, her watermellons sample de
liciously. The next plantation was that of
a life member of the State Agricul'ural So
ciety and of course it was the best of all.
His spacious and level fields of cotton were
illumine with the blossoms both white and
red of the short staple. The aroma of his
corn tassels gives promise of an abundant
harvest of autumn shocks and a big corn
Being satisfied with our jaunt, we put
back for our sanctum, firmly persuaded that
the old Advertiser w~ill make all the lands
richer and richer.
For the Advertiser.
MR. EDITOR :-In the agricultural depart
naent of last Week's " Advertiser" is a para
graph uder the caption " Reports of large
Crops," in which there is an appeal to the
author in common with others of your cor-.
From the very flattering description given
of my prospects on a former occasion, it is
but reasonable to suppose that I should have
reported progress before this, My neighbours
admit that I am a good Winter and Spring
farmer, but the general impression is, that I
atop short in the Summer. I acknowledge
that I failed to give my last years crop the
finishing touch and consequently was unable
to report as many bales of cotton, and
bushels of corn to the hand as some of the
competitors for the Colonel's Watch; but
I made an abundance of forage, the proof
of which is I did not lose a single cow du.
ring the last Winter, which will long be re
membered for its unparalleled severity ;
and which is probably more than can be
said by many of the reporters of the mamoth
crops. I certainly was more fortunate than
my friend who has a plantation on the Co
lumbia Road, and who I am creditably in
formed had nine fresh hides thrown a cross
the pole the same day! Leather certainly
will fall I am glad the Watch, has not yet
been awarded for I am in the ring for it this
year. I have planted my entire crop of cot
ton with Boyd's prolific seed. In the way
of corn I have the old gourd seed, the Me.
Dowel shoe peg, the Baden, the Rare ripe,
the Doorab, and the Wyondot ; and I had
nearly forgot to mention that I have a beau
tiful lot planted with the Strawvberry variety
-and take this occasion to notify my par
ticular friends that by early application they
shall have a limited supply for seed at a dol
lar a bushel.
I have a fine Flag of Truce mare which
will compare favourably with the Morgan
stock. My Durham calves are looking fine,
I have some beautiful Suffolk pigs and any
number of poultry from the Cochin China
dowvn to the little white Bantern,all of which
shall have a showing at our District Fair
which is to come off next November.
As to " our change of diggins" that de
pends entirely upon circumstances. I have
recently discovered some beautiful speci
mens of quarts of the Honey comb struc
ture, which by the aid of my little Lens give
a beautiful exhibition of the precious metal.
Indstead of a change of diggings I may go
to diging change.

VINEYARDS IN THE SOUTH-MR. AIT'S VIE11
OF CRAPE CULTURE, ETC.
IT is probably well known to most ol
our readers, (says the Southern Cultivator,
that Mr. Charles A xt, now of Crawfordville
Ga., has been chiefly instrumental in awak
ing among us an interest in the culture o
the Grape for Wine Making; and that, sc
far, his efforts in various parts of Georg4i
and the adjoining States, have been attende
with marked success. A brief statement ol
his views (as set forth by him during a re
cent conversation with us on this most inter,
esting subject,) may not, therefore, be unac.
ceptable to our readers:
MR. AXT ON VINE CULTURE.
Healthfulness of the Grape.-The Grape
is universally admitted to be one of the
healthiest of all fruits, as it is among the
most delicious. It was one of the first fruiti
that claimed the attention of man, and ha:
never failed to return a rich and abundan
reward for the care bestowed upon it. The
fruit of the vine is cooling and refreshing
and has a very salutary effect upon the
system-being both nutritious and medicinal
it attenuates the blood, and gives it a fret
circulation-delighting the young and reno.
vating the old. Taken freely it is diuretic
and gently laxative. It has often provec
effectual in severe cases of dysentery, ever
curing whole armies. In inflammatory dis
eases, it allays thirst and reduces tho heal
of the system. It is, also, of the greatesl
use in phthisical and pulmonary diseases, o
where there is any 'difficulty in breathing
Dried Grapes, or Raisins, are good for th<
dessert, and in various ways of cooking, anc
are used extensively throughout the civilizec
world. There is no reason why they shouk
not be made in vast quantities and in the
greatest perfection, in the Southern States
Natural Wine--its Domestic use-Pro.
otion of Temperance and Sobriety.-Natu.
ral Wine is the pure fermented juice of the
Grape, entirely free from any admixture ol
sugar or alcoholic spirits. Wherever these
are added, the result is a " made wine," cor
dial or syrup-not a pure and true wine
Nearly all foreign or imported wines are
badly adulterated, and most of them unfil
to drink. Many of them, in addition tc
sugar or spirits, contain decoctions of drug
highly deleterious to health-as any persor
can determine for himself by the disagreea
ble after-effects of a free indulgence in then
at a dinner party or over night. Pure and
atural wine, on the contrary, when drank
in moderation, produces only a slight exhil.
eration and buoyancy of spirits; it is tonic
and strengthening and is followed by nc
nausea, head-ache or confusion of ideas
Where such wine is used habitually in i
amily, and the children have free access tc
it, they grow up sober and temperate, as ih
abundantly proved by the statistics and
statements of travellers in all wvine-producing
countries. Where pure wine can bo hat
abundantly and cheaply, there is no tasti
so denraved as to indulge in fiery alcoholic
spirits as a beverage, and, therefore, drunk
enness, with all its attendant horrors anc
rimes, is almost unknown in wine countries
All lovers of temperance, of good morals
of virtue, lawv and order, should, therefort
encourage the culture of the Grape and the
making of a pure and healthy natural wine
Advantages in Vine Culture pssessed b3
the South over all other Countrice.-The
South possesses great and decided advanta
ges in Grape'growving, over either Europ'
or the Western States. In the latter coun
tries, the Grape is very fastidious in it:
choice of soil and exposure-thriving onl2
upon warm, porous, deeply-trenohed ant
well drained hill-sides, facing the sun. Ii
these countries, tho first cost of land suita.
ble for the Grape is often from $100 t<
400 per acre. In the South, where th<
Grape flourishes on almost any soil or ex
posure, land can be bought from $3 to $1(
per acre. In Europe and at the WVest, ow
ing to the defects of climate and cold natur'
of the soil, the preparation of land for Vine
yards, (such as trenching, terracing, walling
&c.) cost from $50 to $200 per acre; whih'
in the more genial climate of the South, ha2
the use of the subsoil and deep-turninig plow
followed by the spade or shovel, we cal
prepare land for Vineyards at a cost of $4(
per acre, or even less.
Early Bearing and Maturity, at the South
--At the WVest, (in Ohio and elsewhere) th<
Vines only begin to bear a few Grapes th<
third year ; and, if well managed, from thb
sixth year onwards, will average from 301
to 400 gallons of wine per acre. In the
South, we can easily get one thousand (1000
gallons of wine per acre, the third year aftei
planting the cuttings; and, under favorabbi
circumstances, from the 5th year, onwards
each acre will average from 2000 to 250(
gallons of pure unadulterated wine. It
Ohio, one good vine-dresser can attend t<
#ve acres; while, in the South, from the
increased length of the season and additiona
time to do the work, the same hand can en
sily manage ten acres-both, of Course
needing much additional help at the gather
ing time and vintage.
Superior Climate of the South.-Ohit
and other Western States are liable to manj
disasters from the -fickleness and variable
ness of the weather; it being often too wet
too cold, too damp, foggy, &c,, &c., to say
nothing of various other mishaps; causing
loss nearly every year or half the crop. It
fact, a fine, warm, sunny summer is indis
pensably necessary, at the West, to make
good crop of Grapes, and a finely flavoret
Wine. For instatnce, the year 1853 pro.
duced a very superior crop, and the vintag<
of that season is still deservedly esteemed
but, neither at the West or in Europe car
they depend on such a season more that
once in ten years. In the unfavorable years
the Wine is generally too rough and soui
to drink in its natural state, and it is, there.
fore, necessary to add sugar to product
what is known as Champagne or " Sparklina
Wine." This popular drink is very pleas.
ant, palatable, and not particularly injurious;
but in point of purity or healthfulness il
does not rank with the perfectly pure " Still
Wines" before alluded to. We, of thec
South, are exempt from all climate disasters
-the only contingency being a frost in'
lay, or a hail storm during the period ol
Fruiting. The summer weather of the South
is always favorable to the Grape, and we
are, therefore, able to make, every year, a
rull, heavy crop, allowing the bunches tc
ang on the vines until they are fully ma.
tured-an indispensable requisite to the ma.
cilg of good Wine. At the West, the vint.
er is often forced to pick the Grapes before
hey are fully ripe, owing to decay comn
nening. By allowing our Grapes to attain
u1 perfection on the vine, we cnn produce
a Wine equal or superior to the very finest
imported;t and such Wine, if " made" into
a Sparkling Champagne, wvill be mild, fruity,
entirely free from roughness, an'd altogether
nri1e1 by any in the world.
General Propositions.-From the facts
above stated, any person acquainted, by
travel and observation, with the different cli.
mates and modes of Grape culture in this
and foreign countries, will readily admit that
if the South, with her cheap land and slave
labor-her unrivalled climate, good soils,
wealth, &c., &c., will only enter upon and
prosecute vigorously the culture of Grape
and Wine Making, she will in 30 or 40
years hence, control the Wine markets of
the world, as she now does the Cotton mar
ket; and that, too, without any serious de.
triment to the production of the latter-for
the Grape has been and can be easily and
successfully grown upon our exhausted cot
ton fields and old waste lands, by proper
preparation at first and a slight annual ma
nuring afterwards. Indeed, we can afford
to make Wine in the South at 50 cents per
gallon, and than realize more money than
from almost any other crop. In Ohio, how
ever, owing to the uncertainty of the crop
and the comparatively small yield, such a
price would not be sufficiently remunerative
to hold out inducements for men of enter.
prize to engage in the business. [in making
the foregoing comparisons between the West
and the South, no invidiousness is intended.
We cheerfully award the highest credit to
the enterprizing and skilful vintners of Ohio
and other States, only claiming for our own
favored region, those natural advantages
which it so obviously possesses.]
Invitation to the Vineyards of Mr. Axt.
Mr. A. states that he has not, Yet had the
good fortune to see, in this section, a Vine
yard well and properly planted, trimmed
and managed; especially with reference to
the peculiarities of our soils and climate.
He is, therefore, willing to throw open to
public inspection the Vineyards now under
his direction at different places in the South.
In Wilkes Co., Ga., he has 1, 2 and 4 year

All persons who take any interest in the
Grape enterpi ise are cordially invited to visit
any or all of these Vineyards in the latter
part of August of the present year (1856)
to witness the gathering of the Grapes, the
making of the Wine, &c. With the Vines
and the Grapes before them, Mr. Axt will
be better able to give his visitors satisfactory
explanations on the subject, and to remove
from their minds all prejudice, doubt and
misapprehension. His Grapes being in per.
fection, he will, lie hopes, be enabled to sat
isfy the palate as well as the eye and the
judgment of all who may avail themselves
of his invitation. He will, also, be happy
hereafter to answer, through the columns of
this journal, all inquiries on this subject, and
solicits the views and opinions of all inteli
gent and experienced Grape Growers
throughout the South.
