"tLe idle.Ambition her baubles pursue,
Wbile'WIsdom looks down with disdain,
The bome of the farmer has *harms ever new,
Where health, peace and competence reign."
O- a visit to Dr. TuOMAs LAxe, the oth,
day, wo saw a pair of these invaluahlo pa.
hers, which he has lately brought on frill.
the North. Judging from this specimen w,.
reel no-hesitancy in pronouncing them th
best bacon hogs we have ever seen. The
are the "w rhole hog," for the farmer, and %
doubt not that every one, who is a judge ii.
this matter, on Eeeing them, will concur wi'
us in the opinion that they are the bacovn
hog in perfection. In form, they much r<
semble the Suffiolk breed, and while th.
apparently take on fat as readily. they i>
as large or larger than the Irish Graziet
They have a fine coat of hair, are mn's
active and industrious than the Sufflolks, ami
in fine are just the kind of hogs that Sout,
ern farmers need.
As the Doctor expects to exhibit one of
them at our coming District fair, our farme
cin have an opportunity of judging f
themselves. Those who wish to get ii'
this improved stock of hogh, had better il.
ply early, as we understand that a larg
number of pigs are already engaged.
The crops of corn throughout the Distrie
we believe will fall short of a medium yiel-.
Though ic many sections there are some fi".
fields of corn, the drouth has cut short
large portion of the acres planted, and it i
now obvious, that though many of our In
mers may make a bare sufficiency, thern
will be many more that will either have t
economise, or buy. Were it depending up,-i
the present crop, it is also obvious that thee
would be no sellers; but owing to the larg.
amount of old corn on hand, we doubt m.
that the needy will be supplied, but we fea
that the price will be much higher than it ie
The cotton crop has suffered very muc!
within the past month, the drouth has canus
it to shed much of the fruit and forms;t a'nd
as it is now too late, to expect much fron.
the latter crop of boles, a short crop ma.'
be expected, at least, so far as we can leur'
from many portions of our own District, ne
well as from some portions of Abbeville

addition to the resources and comforts ot
the plantation; and we are glad to perceive.
by an article which may be fo~und ini another
column, that an abundant supply of seed
has been secured in Washington city.
Of an Experiment in making Syrup from
the Chinese Sugar (.ane Corn or Sugar
Millet, made to the - Beach Island Far
mer's Club,'" August 2, 1856.
A rule of this Club, requiring every menm
ber to make and report, each year, an Ag
ricultural experiment, I ie ill take this opapor
tunity to acquit myself of that duty. One
of our members-Mr. Redmond, of the~
Southern Cultivator--distributed among us,
last winter, some seeds of what is conmon
ly called Sugar Millet. lie very kindly
gave me enough to plant half an acre
about a pint. I prepared a plot of gro~und
on a northern slope, of old, stifF and worn
out lane, in such a manner and with so
much manure as would probably have made
it yield, with average seasons, about 20
hiushels of corn per acre. On the 22-i of
Mlarch 1 planted the Millet geed in 3 reet
drills, dropping every eighteen or twenty
inches some six or eight seed. it wvas plongh
ed and hoed often enough to keep the grass
down, and about the 1st of July begun to
head. The heat had then been unusually
intense for two weeks, and has continued so
up to the presenit time; and, latterly the
drought has been very destructive I do
not think this half acre would have yieldest
five buabels had it been planted in corn.
Having intended, howvever, to ascertama
whether the :l.illet would make Syrup, I
had a rude mill put up with two beech tt nod
Finding that by the 22d of July the most
advanced heads, had passed the milk staget.
I had 1750 canes cut, that I supposed wtere~
a fair sample of the patch. Tlhe first 3 or
4 hundred were passed through the ni II
twice, the remainded four times, anid the
yield was 194 quarts of juice. H ut 10 canes
that I selected and passed 7 times through
the mill, yielded 3 quarts. Mr. Clark, o'ne
of our-members, was present wvhen this t'as
done. The juice was received in common
tua and tested by a Thermometer, and a
Sacchrometer with a scale of 40 degrees.
The Thermonieter stood in every instance
at 780. The 8. cchrome'er varied from 21j
to 220. At the latter point the juice would
*floats afresh egg. I boiled it in a deep. old
fashioned co* pot, and, after 6 to 7 hours
- i,'g ,obtiued 32 quarts of tolera~se
*The next dag I selected 10 canes, the
o bich were'fully matured, 104tnre

'iinSed through the mill seven times, and
iclded nearly the same quantity of juice
*hout three quarts for every ten canes. The
uice, tested by the Sacchro., showed that
he yonngest cane had rather, the most and
he oldest rather the least sacch'arine matter.
I'he whole together, with that of a few other
Wod caneh, exhihited at 801 of the Ther.
4IJ of the Sacchro. From 42 pints of
he juice I obtained, after four hours boiling.
ne pints of rather better syrup than that
Iiade the day before. In these lailings I
nixed with the cold juice aboti a teaspoon
full of lime-water of the consistency of
-ream for every five gallons.
These seleeted canes grew on the he-4
spots of the patch, and whete probably corn
.ight have been produced the present sea
-.n at the rate of 20 buelhels per acre. 'hey
,ere 1 inch in diameter, at the large,,t end,
.,mkd 7J feet long after cutting off' the henad
,od a foot of the stem.
After this I eut dowin all the inferior ca'e
-ud cured it for forage.
On the 28th of .lelv, two of the memobers
if the Club (Dr. Bradford and AMr. H. La.
*aar) being at my house, remained to see
tie result of pressing and boiling 400 canes
ihad cut and stripped. Each of us seleet.
ed 10 canes, and put them through the press
, times; the result being as before, about 3
piarts for every 10 canes. Buot even after
ie pressure, juice could be wrong fromin tie
canes by the hand, and we agreed that at
ast one-lourth of it, and that the best. re
.,linied in the cane-so iieffivient was my
.dl. The rest of the cane , ordered should
- pressed 6 times, but we did not ourselves
-mliait ti see it done, nor did we count the
00 canes. The yield of the whole, how.
-,el, was 37J quarts. With the Thermotne
ter at 85Q in the juice, the Sacchrometer
-iod at 2410; %e booiled the juice. until
run together in the rim of the ladle and
.mug iii a tratisparent sheet half an inch he.
,.i it before talling. And this in 2J hours.
11e result was 6 quarts of choice syrup
m'ne next day I repeated the experiment on
i larger scale, with equal success, and I
...te brought to the Club enough of the
yrup to enable every, member to try it and
1dge of its quality. All who have tasted it
gree that it is equal to the best that we get
..i New Orleans In these last boilings I
.ut a tablespoonfull of lime-water, prepared
i.- before, to every 10 gallons. The whole
irocesz of clarilying and boilitg was caried
anlugh in the same pot. and that very un.
4oitable from its depth.
I measured the grain from a number of
e-d-, and the result was an average of a
,l from each. I weighed a half peek of
atured grain, after several days exposure
the sun. It weighed 44 lbs., equal to 38
Is. per bushel. I weighed 20 of the best
- me cut for forage, after it was cured suffi
ently to house. They weighed 24 hia.,
qual to 30.000 lbs., for 25.000 canes, whici
thitnk might be grown on land that would
iake 26 hushels of corn with average sea
-ons. I have tried horses, cattle, and bogs,
nd find they eat the cane, its leaves and
eed greedily, and fowls and pigeons the~
ast. I think, howvever, that when allowed
in mature, the cane should he cut up fine
r anitmals. as the outer coat is hard.
I did not attempt to make sugar, tiot hay.
ig prepared for that. There can, however,
je no doubt that sugar can be made froni
uch syrup as this. Anid, as they make
nore sy rup in the Weat Indies per acre thana
ieydo jo Louisiana, only because the cane
unture, better, it is not unreasonable to im.
er that the Millet, which mtutures here per.
retly, and will even make two crops in one
'ear, will yield more aid better sugar than
te Louisianna cane.
Beginniang to cut the cane as soon as the
ead is fully developed, it may be cut fo~r a
moth before it will all ripen-how long
ifter that I do not know. A succession ol
irops niight be easily arranged so as to ini
sure cutting and boilinsg from the 1st ol July

ioused some stalks immtediately from the
field to ascertain, hereafter, whether thus
