From the Patriot & Mountaineer.
We stated, some time since, that however
much to blame Gov. Walker was for expressing
the opinion, in advance, that Kansas could not
be a Slave State, we did not think him so censu
rable as many Southern papers and conventions
of politicians have declared, i recomuenidin.g
that the State Constitution of Kansas, when
framed by the Convention, should be submitted
to the people for ratification. The same thing was
done in one-half of the States of this Union, and
it is a wholesome, democratic principle which
requires it to be done in all instances. It is
true, that the members of the Convention are
elected by the people, and are presumed to know
aud obey their wishes - and judgment in the tor
nation of a constitution. But iow often are
the constituents displeased with the action and
legislation of their representatives ? In so im
portant a matter as the. framing of a conistia
tion, the peopein may well be consulted afletr the
work is done.
We see from the papers, that in this particular
Gov. Walker is sustained unanimously by the
pro-slavery party in Kansas. and by all the lead
ing Southern inea in that Territor'. IlIe i also
sustained by the President and his Cabinct, a
majority ol whoim are Southern men. le is
opposed by the extreme ultra sectionalists of
the South, and the abolitiouists of the North!
When a party gets into bad company, they ought
to pause and think whether or not they may be
mistaken in the course they are pursuing. Be
sure vou are right, and ahvays think of keeping
your oppouent in the wrong, is a good political
maxim, which our Southern friends sem not
well to have considered. The abolitionists of
Kansas arc refusing to vote for members of the
Convention; and in all human probability wvill
refutse to vote against the ratificationt of the
State Constitution. Tis gives us Kansas by
delault; but if a majority of the people of IKan
sas are oppo~sed to slavery, and dletermimed not
to have slaves, we cannot force it tupon them.
They must be lef t to the exercise of' their own
judgment, as every other State has been.
The Virginia papers seem to take a more cor
rect iew ot this mater than some ii South Car
Know Nothings. They deprecate, in bitter
terms, the threat thrown out that a portioti of
the delegations in Congress from South Caroli
na, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, ivil not
unite with the Democratic party in sustaining
the Administration dturing the niext Congress.
Not to cutting yotur own throat is the folly of
placing your enemy in a position to do it, or re
fusing to assist an ally in defending yoursell.
UI.tassMu.-W~e call attention to an article
headed "Extremes Meeting" to be found in an
other colutmn. There will be found in it far
more truth than poetry. While the pro-slavery
party of Kansaus and Missouri are satisfied with
the laministrationt and Walkers policy, a party
in Soth Carolina are raising violent opposition
to it. The potent catuse of thme whole Kiansas
excitement at the Sotuth was to sustain Atchison
and the Missourians :now since they are satis
fled and to sustatin thent will be to allay agtea
tion,~ .some of the papers of our State are adivo
eating the~ formation of a Southern party to put
themi atll down :to array ourselIves agatinst Mary
land, Virginia, North Carolina Tennessee. Ken
tucky and Missiouri, nil of which States ar~e al
most unanimous in their appiroval of the A d
ministration's policy ; to split ill the Southern
States and destroy the harnmony which recently
exhibited itself so gratifyingly in the Presideni
tial election; and thus under the standard of
"Southern devotion" which they set tip to suit
their own ultraism, enter the South with her
columns divided and scattered into a conflict
wvith Black Republicanism. We publish the
extract from the Emp'irer, the lending paper of
Virginia, to show what injury ultraism does the
South even in a Southern State.
None know bettter thian these very papers that
they are making Walker's policy a more moti
strous one than it really is; the approval tof the
Missourianis must satisfy thenm of thiis. Their
obiject is to organize a Southern party andi to
serve this purpose they agrgravate his offence for
the purpose of creating distrust im the adlmmis
tration and the party which elected it. Whien
the South is prepared for a Southern party it
will be ready for a dissolution of the Union.
And a Southern party before the South is pre
pared for that issue will only produce dissension
at the South- We are united nowv; why then

to none in the State,) he has the confidence of

WHAT WOULD THEY HAVE US DO I
Our friends of the Charleston Mercury and of the
Charleston 'vcning kewse seem, so far as we can gath
er, to be bent on the formation of a now party. The
former paper did not respond to the call we made up
on it last week, to announce its plan of action. But
the Necs, with' its accustomed independence and
promptness, has stkped forward and made the an
nouneement desired, of its own motion. In an article
entitled " Tin REXEDY," we find the following man
"It is evident that the remedy to be effectual, must
embrace two featured.: 'ono, a check upon the North in
converting all the territories into anti-slave States,
and, the other. a prompt Southern movement toward
securing the Indian Territory. the Garndson Purchase.
South California and a Southern Railroad to the Pa
cifie. Texas should'aid by being divided into two or
more additional slaves States. Both these results can
be secured without a disruption of the Union; but if
necessary to their attainment let the disruption take
To achieve the desired end without a disruption of
the Union. the Southern people nust forego all pres
ent and past party divisions, and unite under one
Southern Rights party-Constitutionalists."
Most heartily do wo-second our cotemporary's prop
ositions as set forth in the first of the two paragraphs
we quote. Every man at the South is for " checking
the North in converting all the territories Into anti
slave States." Neither will any Southern press or In
dividual be slow in advocating " a prompt Southern
movement toward sepuring the Indian Territory, the
Gadsden purchase, South California and a Southern
Railroad to the Pacific," provided this movement be
a defined and practicable one, and not merely loose
words on paper. But we cannot yet see that to at
tain this end successfully, it is an essential pre-requi
t site that a new Southern party be now formed, to be
called the " Contitutionalista." Certainly so far as
the "movement" indicated is to be considered, there
is no such necessity. That "movement." as fore
shadowed by the XeiN, does not ippear to be one in
the nature of governmental action, but a matter which
Southern foresight and Southern patriotism are to lay
hold of in the way of private enterprize. There is no
need of any new party organization to effect this end.
If the Southern people are determined to sleep on the
advantages that would accrue to them in "securing
the Indian Territory, the Gadsden purchase &c." we
are at a loss to know how any party organization can
prevent it. Suppose the new party formed; suppose
its "banner waving in victory over every Southern
State;" we admit and feel that any such Southern
union would be a glorious consummation. But how
would the Southern colonization of the Indian Terri
tory, the Gadsden purchase, or Southern California lie
promoted thereby ? This at last is a thing which our
people will decide for.themsclves, upon considerations
I of interest as well as of patriotism, and irrespective
s of the creed or obligations of any party, new or old.
We hold that the Sot, I will occupy the territory men
- tioned as far as it is oll adapted to slave labor, no
I farther. If thi prove to be a mistake, we reckon
- vainly upon Southern bagacity and energy. The great
r Southern heart failing to beat high in view of the ad
vantages here contemplated, it would be little short
f political quackery to think of galvanizing it by the
instruiientality of a new Southern party. How South
(rn Countitutionailism is to effect any more in this line
of exertion than Southern Rights Democracy, we wait
to be informed.
But it may be (althlugh not so expressed) that the
c Xciu hints at State action in the way of assisting cmi
gration to these new territories. If so, we are by io

0 But how, again, will the Constitutionalists bring about
0 such action by any one of the Southern States any
more readily or effectually, than can now be done.
Their name forbids the idea that they would do this
by any extra-comtitudiouuai mode of proceedure. If
b any State is now ready to take such action-(the pen.

ties noiw stand. They have claimed andl realized the
right to take slaves into any territory of the United
'States, and the further right to he protected there in
the enjoyment of their property up to the time when
t Federaul power gives place to State sovereignty. We
Scite Kansas as our instance. These rights have there
Sbeenm realized. Despite Governor Walker's tricks of
d legerdemain, they are existant and unimpaired by any
a power having authority to impair them. The act of:
Congress opening up all the territories to Southern as
0 well' as Northern occnpation is not affected in its vi
3tahity by anything this agent has done, whether with
or without tihe sanction of the Administration which
haus emaployedl him. The law is still intaet, and the
Scu's well knowvs, that if our people and our institiu
tions had the real preponderance in that territory, it
woulid become a slave state. So it is with all the other
t'erritories yet to be peopled. Aiid now, under the
0sway of Diemnocratic pirinciples, the Indian Territory,
Sthe Gadsdhen purchase and Southern C.alifornia stand
openi to Southeru enterprise; and if the people of the
South see that the climate, sol and puruodnetioins of
Cthese territories are of a kind calculated to make

tadlherence to the same principles, although like us
Sthey are provoked at Walker's intermedling. And
here we transcribe an extract from a letter to-dlr y re
eived from an oldl South Carolinian, now a rer iet
of Alabama, anud who was a staunch Carolina Nullifier
-in 1833: " We have no opposition," ho writes, " to
the Domoeratie candidate for Governor, neither is
there any for the Legislature with us,-at least by

of Independent Dlemocrats are running, as they could
not get the nomination. Walker's course in Kansas
has brought about a show of opposition in the Con

result. In your views of Carolina politics I am with
you."' This is the voice of ats true a Southerner ais

THE BILL BUG OR CORN BORER.
MR. EDITOB:-I am happy to learn from the last
issue of your valuable paper, (the Advertiser) that
our worthy friend Col. JoN QUATTLEBuM, has
awakened up to the importance of the Bill Bug or
Corn Borer, so commonly called the bud worm,
for I am convinced when such men as my friend
Col. Q. has been properly aroused to such an im
portant subject as that of the origin of the Bill
Bug, something beneficial to the planting interest
must inevitably be the result.
But my friend has not gone quite far enough in
his examinations into the history of the Bill Bug,
for lie says I found from bottom to top of the
weed in which were deposited eggs and young
worms-the worms in full shape being near the
the root. And again he says, " Those Eggs, I
suppose, were deposited by a kind ofifly." Thus
it goes to show that my friend Col. Q. is somewhat
in the dark yet, in regard to the origin and history
of the insect, that has done so much damage to
the young corn. In order to set him right on the
" Bud Worm," so erroneously called (for there is
nothing as a "Bud Worm,") such and all others who
may take an interest in an investagation of this
great and important sulicct, I will give a portion
of my experience and investigations in thu matter,
to which I have given much conecern.
But before I enter upon that portion of my sub
ject, and to show that I do not stand alone, allow
ine to give to your many readers a short history of
the Bill Bug or Corn Borer from our worthy Sena
tor, Judge EvA s: The insect Bill Bug or Corn
Borer is from four to six tenths of an inch in length,
and of a reddish brown or reddish black color
the head is furnished with a long trunk or bill,
lwce its common name. It is very destructive to
corn in imany parts of the South and South West,
and brought here for examination by Senator
EvtIs. He states it is very injurious to the crops
,n the Pedec River. Ile says the perfect insect
cuts into the stalk of the corn either below or just
at the surface of the ground, where it deposits its
eggs. After changing into a grub, the insect re
mains in the stalk, devouring the substance until
it transforms into the proper state, which occurs in
the same cavity in the stalk occupied by the grub.
It makes its appearance the following spring in the
perfect state, again to deposit. its eggs at the foot
of the young corn plants. These inscts destroy
the main stem or shoots, thus causing suckers to
-pring tup which usually pirodluce no grain, or i
any, of very inferior qutality to that of thb gener
al yiel. Swamp lands or low grounds are the
places most generally attacked. And again, he
says, at the same time the plant they infest
should be discovered and also destroyed. It
shows plainly that the Senator was convinced that
they infest some other plant except the corn, but
In the spring of 1856, I wvas led to the examina
tion andl investigation of this insect by diseoverinig
a number of smiall holes or cavities in almost every
old stalk of the Rag or Carrot weed during the
process of sowing my oat crop, and also in the
breaking up of my stubic lands. I determined then
to watch throught the coming season to see what
had made these immerous holes or cavities int thte
dry weeds. A bout the middle of May I discovered
in a small Rag weed which had grown to the
height of about four inches a snmitl puncture near
the top ; Icxamined it carefully and founid it con
tainied a small yellow egg, something smaller than
a small mustard seel. I then kept up a stricter
watch than ever to see whtat kintd of an insect had
deposited the eggs, fur as the weeds becamte more
numerous the more plenty were the eggs to be
found. I began at one time to believe that the
eggs imust he deposited in the night time, as I cottld
make no discoverv of the inseet. Bitt as thme sea
son advanced, and they became more plenty, their
whereabouts coul very easily be detected. I conahl
ind them all through the day depositing their egg
in the tender stem of the Rag weed, which they
do by making a small incision with their long bills.
A fter the egg has beeni deposite i two weeks or less,
it is hatched into a small worin or grutb. It there
assumes a diff'erent transformation before it becomes
the usual bug which it does in the same cavity of
the stalk, where the egg was deposited. liere I
much diffe~r with our worthy Senator. He believes
that the eggs were deposited ini thme stalk of the
corn abotut or near the sgrihece of the grounid. I
have exanminedl a great tnmber of stalks and foundt
that a punct ure or hole is mtade just, below the sur
face of the grottnd and abotut half an itnch above
the old grtub. In thmis they go for the pttrpose of
food; corni is of coutrse about tihe first, veget ationi 1up
at this reason, and is genmerally very luxuriant and
sappy, anid consequently aflbrds fine succor for
the bugs that hate been kept ini the cavity of the
old wveed during the whole wintr-and whpn the
Spring has become warm they cut thetmselves out
of thme old statlk or weed, miany of whaich: are al
ready plowed in:to ground. They are then ready
to conmnence their depredationas upjoni the yoting
1 ant well pleased with Cohl Q's. advice to the
farmers to aval themselves of an early opportni
ty oif destroyintg these very troublesomi weeds
forthwith, for I believe with him, that, in decstroy
ing the weeds we will save much labor' and sate
corn. But [ votl have been better pleased wvith
our friend Qn.. if lie had given his plan dlestroyinig
t~e wveeds more defitnitely.
Dtirinig the last sunimer and fall, I made sonie
little pretentions to destroying thmese pests; for I anm
thoroughly of the opinion that, if these weeds wtere
destroyed the Bill Bug would cease to exi-t at all.
Btt if the farmers generally woubtl take hold of
thiis inatter anmd become as deeply interestedl as the
as the en,:e actutally requires, thmese weeds and htigs
woutld ait once be eradicated. My mode for their
lestrution is, to cotmmencee about the last of
Aigus to turnt tlhe land under with a large turnintg
low, just before seeding timte of the weeds. And
the 1p10n is to cut them downu in your sttible fields
with grass blades which answer a very good pur
poee. But I like the former best-the land is left
in a better- condition for thme next cr0op.
I founid this spring a very perceptiblo decrease
>f weeds, amnd also tlhe bugs both, where I turned
le hand over in Angtist last-and also, where I
ut them down with blades. In layinig by the
rop, reqtuire the hands to triam dowii all thme hedge
rows, ditches, and branch banks, as they finish thme
:rop. By these modes if persevered in, the pilan
ers generally can rid themselves of their obnox
ous weeds. I would say to my friend Col. QUAr
rLmEBUM, persevere in your investigations, and you
trill soon find something more for the readers of
ie Advertiser, and for all othcrs that may take a1
lively interest in this subject.

Cow out upon the wight that dozes on,
When the grey cast her opal gates unbars;
Then the glad prelude nature's harp has strung,
Goes up to Heav'n amidst the paling stars;
When earth with universal voice pours forth
Pwans of glory to the day-god's birth.
lhen in the early morn, ere yet the din
Of busy life enthrals the weary heart,
)h ! what a sense of happiness within
Does each attendant of the dawn impart!
A new baptism brings to life each flower,
And giveseach panting breast, or lagging arm,
[lark! to the winding of the dietant horn,
Whose softened echoes o'er the hill-tops play!
List! to the cadence in the rosy morn,
Of trilling brooklets in their roundelay!
Each dewy zephyr from the wak'ning grove
Bears on its pinions many a boon of love!
And then the herdsman with his loud yo, ho I
The rustic tune the ploughman loves to sing,
he mist amid the hills, the mystic glow
Of light and shade abroad with arrowy wing,
Touching the landscape with its pencilled rays,
Charaing the bosom with our Master's praise.
lo! laggard, rouse thee from thy sickly dreams,
All nature calls thee with its loud refrain;
Spring from thy bed, 'Lis not the friend it seegs,
Nor seek its influence in the morn again.
Oh! wherefore let thy morbid instincts rule ?
Forth to thy duty, seek some loftier goal!
Thy wit too, laggard, sure its point must lose,
When at the little lark its force is thrown;
A lesson it will teach thee, shouldst thou choose,
If thou hast not all holier joys outgrown;
T'would whisper to thee if thou fain would'st
That praise to God the morn's first beam
Oh, thou false reasoner, leave thy couch of down,
And breathe the air of heaven fresh and pure;
Thou wrould'st inhale it, with a zest unknown,
Nor o'er thy day-dreams drop one lingering tear;
Throw thy false theories to the bat and owl,
Come he a man-dont ape the meanest fowl.
If thou canst, boat no better deeds than come
Of dreams and dozes, thoud'st do well to find
A refuge in some cave, a fitting home
For snails and dormice, and such lazy kind.
Methinks no Angel bright would plume its
To be the guardian guest of such a thing.
I wish thee better of thy fancied joy,
Ah! burst thy fetters c'en as Sampson did;
Rise with the lark if thou would'st life employ
As best thou should, nor let thy light be hid
Beneath thy ennervating counterpane,
Come, rouse thee up and be a man again.
Sleep is a blessed thing, a gift from Heaven,
And guardian spirits o'er the guileless bend;
But for the night this priceless boon is given,
When, mid the hush of nature, calmly blend
Our fevered tl houghts, our busy earking cares,
With dreams of Hope beyond the coming

" The droughteontinues excessive in this coun

The rich bottom lands of the Guadalupe river
which, in fair seasons, yields more abundantly
than any other portion of the West, is now
scorched like a desert; and in.many places the
corn and cotton is wilting on 4estalks. From
every church and hamlet the prayer for weeks
has gone up: "God send us rain, or we perish."
The Herald says:
"From the best information we can gather,
we are led to conclude that in Eastern and Aid-.
die Texas, tolerable crops will be made. The
rains have been partial, and in some instances a
full yield of cotton will be obtained, so that, al
lowing for extreme deficiencies,'we may look for
a three-fourths crop. West of the Brazos, the
planters' prospects are not so good, and taking
the whole district of country west of that stream,
but little over half a crop of cotton .can be pro
duced this season, while in corn there will be a
serious deficiency. It is doubtful, in many
places, whether enough corn will be gathered to
furnish the people with bread.
"On the lower Brazos And Caney, -1he sugar

seasonable showers will yet ensure a fair yield."
