BROOM CORN AND BROOM MIK(INiG. at
Why is it, Messrs. Editors, that the cul. Sj
tivation of the broom corn is so much neg- tr
lected in Virginia, when there is scarcely a af
more profitable crop in the State? We b<
pay yearly a lairge revenue to the New es
York and New England fltrners for this li
article, which can be raised as successfully bi
here as in any part of the world. t.
I have been informed that the ihrmers on ce
the Mohawk river are making fortunes by ei
the cultivation of broom corn, while the
manufacturers are also realizing fortunes by tl
broom making. I am advised of the exis- it
tence of only one fhrm in Virginia on which it
the cultivation of broom corn and making b
brooms is carried on a large scale. l<
Messrs. Look & Lincoln, two enterprising L
gentlemen from Massachusetts, now located w
about two miles from Christiansburg, culti- d
vate, as I have been informed, about thirty p
acres of broom corn, and manufacture si
brooms for market, for which they find rea- a
dy sales at full prices. These gentlemen a
also manufacture cheese of very superior L
quality, while their wives manufacture very fi
excellent palm leaf hats. b
Too much praise cannot be awarded to r
these gentlemen and their families for the p
energy, skill and enterprise with which they w
have gone into these various occupations ; b
and they deserve from their fellow citizens l;
the most liberal patronage. v
I thought that Petersburg would afford a si
One opening for a professed broom maker, w
tond if I could procure a man acquainted it
with the namagement of the crop, from the p
planting of the seed to the manufacture of Ik
the broom, I should be glad to aid in start- e
ing such an enterprise.
It is time for us to take upon ourselves ii
the manufacture of all articles of prime ne
cessity. insteal of sending to the North for ;
everything. From a wooden button to a s<
saw mill, all must come from the North. w
Our hats, our shoes, our books, every arti- it
cle of our wearing apparel, the finery that ft
adorns our wives and daughters, in short, ai
everything, even our fashions, must be drawn n
from the North. tr
It is time to establish our independence.- si
We have been too long pouring the profits ri
of our labor into the overflowing coffers of
that rich North whose people, so far from it
sympathizing with us of the South, curse us g
in their hearts, denomuncc us as worse thtan h
savages, and are seeking, with a fieiud-like tt
malice and envy, to seatter firs brands in ii
But to return to broom lnmking, I have
no statistics from which to prPijre an esti
muiate of the <anount paid out by the South "
for this article ; I am certain that if the [b
tramount were stated, it would strike some of a
your readers with profound astonishment.' I
It is the fashion of the day to decry the
low state of Virginia agriculture and the "
slave labor :s the catues of our comparative
poverty, but it is not true. It is this ever- a
lasting tribute to the North that makes her. tU
self rich and ourselves poor. Our money U
is ever tlowinig in copious streams North
ward-none, comparatively, ever returns.
We not only buy all our goods, wares and k
merchandise from the North, but our pro
duce must be shipped in Northern vessels.
We have indeed become "hewers of wood 12
and draws of water" for the North.
WVell, where is your remedy for these
evils suggested by a simple reference to
broom makingi In one word the " division
of labor." Our noble rivers and our milda
climate, afford facilities for manufacturing
not surpassed by any country. Let the
capitalist lay out his money in various large ,
factories; let him call on Virginia farmers
to feed his operators, let the farmer buy and
consume his tabrics, and then the money :
that now goes to pamper the capitalists of
the north will circulate at home, and Vir
ginia will soon become rich.-But let us -.
continue to draw all our goods, &c., from
these, our worst enemies, and our manifest
destiny is poverty, poverty, unmitigated

CHINESE SU!GAR WAE IN TEXAS. A
A subscriber, (E. B.) wvrites us from Gon
zales, Texas, as follows: TI
I have tried the Chinese Sugar Cane here ai
and find it an imiportant acquisition to our 1)
agricultural resources. It stands drouth bet- ~
ter than any other plant that I ama acquaint
ed with. It seems admirably adapted to
our climate here. Its introduction into this
country must produce an enitire revolution
in our rural operations. its culture will su
perceed that of Indian corn and other forage J
crops to a considerable extent, and the mo- ot
nopoly of sugar will no longer be restricted ol
to the State of Louisiatna; it will afford am- VI
p~le opportunity of raising poultry, muaking.
butter, cheese, pork, lard and bacoin, and bc A
the means of producing a quantity of ma- C
nure where that is needed. I doubt wheth. '
er it will answer as well on poor land as has i
been replresenited by somie writers; except. a
probably when sown broadcast for forage. I
find it easily affectcd by frost. In every
other respect the accounts whlich I have seen.
are entirely within the bounds of truth.
I planted thme Sorgho on the 14th (of April.
plowed it once and subsoiled and hoed once
We had no rain after the 13th of May.
The grain matured about the middle of July J
and produced at the rate of 50 b)ushels to Ii
the acre as to the land planted, but from
depredations of bugs and p)oultry there wmls a
not hlf a stand. After the grain was gath- a
ered the stock was turned in the field and I L
hadl no opportunity of ascertaining what a -
second crop wvould have produced. The 'i
stubble is now green, the sprouts have been
destroyed from time to time as they have
appeared by stock, and recently by the
frosts. E. B.
AN INTEatEsTING FAcT.-The recent inves. J
tigatioins of Prof. Wray, chemist to the
Royal Agricultural Society of England,
have brought out a curious faict, which may
throw light upon the rationa/e of some im. C<
portant practices in agriculture. Rain wa-a
ter contains ammonia and nitric acid, and-k
is from these two substances that the nitro
gen of plants is obtained. A series of ex
aminations of the water discharged from
underdrains, show that it contains less am
mnonia and more nitric acid than rain water.
Ra'n water tilteritig through the soil, then,
parts with its ammonia, but dissolves out IA
nitric acid fronm the soil or manures. Flow I rc
is nitric acid formed in the soil ? Probably, tao
.says, Prof. WVray, from the oxyidation of _
iitrogencus mantures; and he recommiends
a more perfect admixture of manures with
the soil as the most likely means to prevent
the formation of nitric acid, and the loss of1 L
nitrogen from leaching. It appears to us, th
too, that if the manure was thoroughly de- ~
composed before applying it to the land, it ~
would not only be easier to mix it ultimate
lv with the soil, but there would be less ni
tr'e acid formed, and coasequently less loss. ful
CULTURE OF CELERY.
The principal difficulty in raising large
d well bleached celery is to get the plants
rly, and sufficiently stocky. This is best
complished by sowing them early in the
)ring in a hot bed, and when an inch high,
ansplanting them into a cold frame, and
terwards transplanting them into a warm
>rder where they can remain till the trench
are ready for them. This will seem niore
bor than most people are willing to bestow,
it frequent transplanting is the only way
get strong, healthy plants that will re- To
ive little check when planted in the trench
during our hot June and July weather.
In making the trenches the soil should be
rown out at least two feet deep, and twelve pot
ches wide at the bottom; the first six has
ches being placed on one side, so that it PR
used for covering the manure. Good the
af compost, or "spit manure," as the ni
ondon gardeners say, from old hot beds, or sec
'hat is still better, the liquid and solid the
Toppings from a manure cellar, well com.
asted with thoroughly decomposed peat r
mould be put at the bottom of the trench L
bout sixteen inches thick, and covered with on.
)out six inches of rich, light surface soil. of
et the plants be well watered 24 hours be. Fo
ire transplanting, and take them up with a
all of earth round the roots,. and they will be
aceive little or no check. Good super-phos. the
hate of lime either in solution or mixed M
'ith the soil before transplanting, has a very "
eneficial eilect, in giving the celery an ear' ar
start. We have also used with great ad- w
antage Peruvian guano, applied in a weak Ithe
>lution, .ay a teaspoonful to two gallons of Th
ater. Celery is a gru.s fieder, and revels
Samimotiiacal manure. and the well decom?
used organie matter or humus of dung,
ayes, peat, &c. The soil should be kept
>nstantly stirred till the plantzs have got a i
,od start. and it is not weil to he in too
such hurry to Colsniicnce earthimg up.
It is indeed a disputed liint whether it is
ist to earth up at several tites during the
.:son as the plants grow. orto ido it at once, -
hen they have nearly done growing, late -
the bill. We have always adopted tl.e
rmer practice, and have had good succe .s;
id, on this account, are inclined to recom
end it. In earthing up, came should he
ken that the soil does niot get hetween the
alks, rnd is not well to press it too tightly
nmd the plants at first.
In England, celery is allowed to remain
the ground all winter; but from the
-eater severity of our winters, it is better.
?re, at the North at least, i take it up af
r it has done growing, and stow it away in

THE PRINCETON PRESS.
r IIE design of the inventor was to get up a
1Press which would answer every requirement
of the offer made by George Bruce, of New York,
in 1851, viz: CHEAP, LIGHT, EASILY MAN
AGED, and capable of throwing off at least 600
sheets per hopr.
This PRESS will throw off from 500 to 800
sheets per hour, doing the work equal to any Cylin
der Press. The bed stands about .thirty inches
from the floor, and is the most convenient of all
Presses to make ready the form on. It is adapted
to jobbing or book work, as well as newspaper, and
will register as well as any other Cylinder Press.
It requires to work it, a man to turn the fly wheel,
and a boy to feed the sheets.
The Inking Apparatus Is very complete, and
differs from the apparatus used in Cylinder Presses
generally, being more like that used in'the Power
Platen Presses. Two rollers pass over the form
twice to each impression, taking ink for each sheet.
A Press of this description for newspaper and
jobbing, bed 14 by 28J inches, with roller mould,
roller stocks, blanket, flying and registering appa
ratus, &c., complete, will be furnished for $500. If
intended for book work chiefly, an extra ink foun
tain will be furnished fur $20.
The Press, fly wheel, &c., will weigh about 2000
pounds. The sides, &c., are iron. Length of frame,
seven feet; height to front edge of feed-board, three
feet six inches. Any size made to order.
The following is a list of the sizes and prices, as
far as established:
Bed 28 by 20 ...................$400
" 36 " 24 ................... 450
" 44 " 28J ............ ..... 600
" 46 t 30 ................... 540
" 48 " 31 ........... ....... 580
" 50 " 32 ................. 600
" 52 " 32 .................. 625
" 56 " 36 ................... 800
Boxing and Carthage, $13.
The beds will take chases their full breath, and
within two inches of the length.
TERMS.-One half cash; one half note, four
months, with approved security ; or 21 per cent.
discount for cash.
For more than four years the Oventor of the
above Press has been improving it, working it Ml
the while, and ascertaining with great care and
expense, thebest mode of carrying out all the de
taiis, and he now flatters himself he has succeeded
in perfecling it. Within the past year important
improvements have been made.
No Press will leave his premises without being
thoroughly tested, and without it performs to the
entire satis'action of the purchaser.
