"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."
A correspondent of the Charleston Stand
ard, writing from Texas, makes the follow
ing sensible remarks in reation to emi
"Instead, therefore, of persuading the
young men of South Carolina to leave their
native State, I would say to them, "Turn
your attention to every new branch of busi
ness that is honorable and remunerative.
Build up manufactories of every kind. In.
troduce the culture of everything that yields
a large return from a small extent of land.
Use your boundles extent of water to irri
gate your lower lands and make them yield
five or ten fold as much as they are now
doing. Plantgroves around your dwellings
to shield you from the miasma that rises
from the creeks and rivers. Ineshort, do
everything that is necessary to increase and
multiply the resourcesand independence and
power of South Carolina."
We have, on more than one occasion,
within a few years been compelled to give
the parting hand to most useful and valued
citizens of our district, who were about
seeking more desirable homes, and a greater
Yield for their labor, in the distant lands of
the West. And we also have been called
upon to record the melancholy fate, and per.
haps too, to learn of the wreck of fortune
of those who relinquished abodes, smiling
with healtb, plenty and prosperity, in their
maternal and native Carolina. An uncalled
for or imaginary dissatisfaction, or, may be,
a thirst for more rapidly increasing gain, we
fear, in too many cases, prompts the actors.
The soil and the various departments of
mechanical and industrials pursuits in South
Carolina, all of which tend to the develop
ment of our resources and the building up
of our commercial importance and State
rights independence, still hold forth induce
ments and rich rewards for the investment
of enterprise and capital. Many are the
noble and never-failing streams, coursing
our native valleys and embodying within
themselves the element of power necessary
to put in motion the driving machinery and
busy loom, whose waters of wealth have
been permitted to flow on, yielding no
increase. The soil, too, with a proper and
judicious system of cultivation, has never
failed to render a remunerative return.
Why, then, will the sons of Carolina, who
have been nurtured in her lap and reared to
manhood beneath her genial sun, desert her
standard, and lend their enterprize and
means to enriching and building up other
lands!i Gratitude, and respect and venera
tion for her honored name, if nothing else,
should deter them.-Sumter Watchman.
Not one farmer in twenty knows what it
is to have his table well supplied with early
vegetables, although the cost of a hot-bed is
trifling, and it can be made in a few hours
at a time when the work on the farm is not
very pressing. Choose a warm, dry border
facing to the South or Southwest, and out of
the range of buildings and shade-trees, so
that it will have the full force of the sun's
rays. Dig a pit from one to two feet deep
over which to place the frame. Make thme
frame of one anid a quarter inch plank. 'The
size may be from 3 to 5 feet in wvidtht and
of any desirable length. When the frame
is adjusted over the pit fill it about half full
of fresh horse-stable manure, of which hats
been well kept and not exposed to the ac
tion of the weather. Put on the sashes anmd
allow thema to remain for three or four days,
after which the soil can be put in fronm six
to eighit inches in de'pth. This must be the
best mould that can be procured fronm the
garden. The seed should not be planted for
several days after the bed has been made, as
there is danger of destroying the germ if
seed is put over the hot manure too soon.
Air sho'uld be given to the bed before it is
The frame should be banked up with warm
manure and soil on all sides to protect it
from cold, and when the weather is unusual
ly inclement it would be wvell to cover it
with straw. The bed should be sprinkled
with water daily until the plants appear, and
when the weather is sufficiently mild the
sashes can be removed to allow the entrance
of fresh air, and make the plants grow strong
PRUNING TREES IN FEnRLARY.-The pru
ning of small twigs and shoots can be donme
at almost any season of the year without
material injury to the tree ; but when it is
necessary to take off large limbs it can he
attended to with advantage in February or
the early part of March, in wvhich months
the tree is not so full of' sap as later in the
season, wvhen the tree is in vigorous growth.
Large limbs should *be taken off with a
fine smooth saw, after which'the corners of
the wound (where the bark meets the wood)
may be trimmed smooth with a pruning
knife. When the wound is left ragged and
torn so that rain will settle in, it will often:
rot and injure the tree materially. Sonme
experien'.ed horticulturists recommend that
the place left by cutting off a limb should
be touched over with some cheap paint to
prevent the destructive effects of air anid
moisture. Tar, pitch and wetelay are often
applied for the same purpose.
Loose no time in riesetting the orchard.
A young tree should not be planted in the
same place where an old diseased one has
stood, unless the earth is removed, and vir
gin soil pelted in around it. Examine the
bark of the apple and pear tree, and destroy
the eggs of insects; scrape the gum from
around the roots of the peach trees, and
pour boiling water into the holes of thme
worms that have caused the gum. If the
soil in the fruit orchard be now manured,
plow lightly, and mulched all over with
leaves or straw, thme crop of fruit will be .
improved astonishingly next season, If
rabbits bark young trees, rub their trunks;
with soft country soap.-Plant out orchards
of apples, pears and peaches. Select strait,
well formed trees, budded or gm afted low I.
down. Patronise only those nursery men <
that take up and pack trees with care, and I
then plant them carefully. Young trees are
generally planted too deep; the young,
rootlets want the surface soil and not the
subsoil. Therefore small trees are safer to
plant than large ones. In planting out a
tree, the hole should not be dug as if a post I
was to be planted. The hole should be
du..thre times a large s the roots ex
end. Fresh surface soil should be filled in
round the roots, and the tree planted firm.
y at once; it is a bad practice to water
he roots at planting; the tree will hardly
,et a firm hold in the ground; the ground
hould be moist, but not wet. Much of
he prosperity of the orchard depends upon
he first setting of the trees.-Cotton Plan
er and Soil.
THE FARMER'S SONG.
I envy no. the mighty king
Upon the splendid throne
Nor crave his glittering diadem,
Nor wish his power mine own;
For though his power and wealth be great,
And round him thousands bow
In reverence-in my low estate
More solid peace I know.
I envy not the miser-he
May tell his treasures o'er,
May heap on heaps around him see,
And toil and sigh for more:
I'd scorn his narrow, sordid soul,
Rapacious and unjust:
Nor bow beneath the base control,
Of empty, gilded dust.
My wants are few and well supplied
By my productive fields,
I court no luxuries beside,
Save what contentment yields.
More pure enjoyments labor brings,
Than wealth or fame can bring,
And he is happier who lives
A Farmer, than a King.
CARE OF BEES IN WINTER.
The trouble of Wintering bees is the
rreatest cause of failure in their successful
propagation, by young and inexperienced
%piarians. Some advise keeping bees in
ellars through the Winter. When this is
practiced, the cellar should be perfectly dry,
as moisture is very injurious to them.
In New-England we have seen holes made
in the ground, into which the hivesare placed
and surrounded with straw: leaving plenty
of room for the entrance of air, and to al
low the bees egress and ingress, if they de
sire to leave the hive, as they often do.
A good plan is to place the hive on the
ground, and surround it with straw, which
can be kept in place by wooden stakes, driv
en close together around the hive. This al
lows plenty of air, and darkens the hive suf
Sometimes a box is made large enough to
cover the hive on the stool upon which it
stands. This is a very convenient mode.
The box should have holes to allow the en
trance of air, and permit the bees to go out.
BUTTER-MAKING IN WINTER.
To make good butter it is necessary to
have a suitable milk-room, or cellar, which
should be dry, light, and well ventilated.
The milk should be set away in clean pans,
which can be made of earthen-ware or tin.
When milk is set in a dark, damp cellar
there is danger of its becoming inouldy;
and if it stands without being churned for
some time, it becomes either bitter, cheesy,
or sour, which taste it imparts to the butter
Butter should never be washed in water
or taken into the hand to be wvorked, as the
water destroys imuchi of its delicate aroma,
and the heat of the hands melts and makes
it oily. It should be taken from the churn
with a wooden ladle and placed in a tray;
the salt is then wvorked in by the use of the
ladle, and the buttermilk worked out. It
can then be set awvay in a cool place for
twenty-four hours, after which it should be
again wvorked, until all the buttermilk is
thoroughly expelled, when it can be packed
down in pots, and will keep for a long time
if air is excluded.

" LATEST IMPROvEMENT IN TnlE SAw Gix."
-Mr. .Janmes L. Orr, of Alabama, who olh
tained the premium for the best cotton gin
at the late~ thir ini that State, has since made
a very i mportanut imiprovet ment, hatving imn
pirove~d his gin to that degree of perfectiont,
as regard-s the samp~le, that lhe fears no0 supe
rior. Iis attention has been directed to
the increase of speed; and after many ex
perinments, he has invented a new method
of getting elear of the seed, b.y a new plan
of ribs, which sheds the seeds at three pla
ces; there~by supplying the feeth with cou:
ton instead of seecd, and which causes an
increase of cotton ginned from fhrty to fifty
per cent. Tfhis improvement is rendered
more valuable ihri not having to ~resort to
the old method for making gins pick fast,
which injures the sample.
We learn from a gentleman that saw one
)f these gins at work, that a forty satw can
be made to pick 100 pounds in five minutes,
md smakes a good samuple. A patent for
this gin has bee-n obtained by Mr. Orr.
