Ma. EnTron: If " I am not out of order,"
I beg permission to call the attention of the
cotton.growers of South Carolina, to what I
conceive to be, and is a sad and growing evil
involving character on the one hand, and
money on the other. I allude to the improper
packing and putting up of cotton. I have
been a dealer in cotton for many years, al
most exclusively in that product; and sold
within the limits of South Carolina; and I
am sorry to say that I have had to do with
more cotton thus improperly put up the past
season, than I have had in the whole of any
three years of my experience.o Therefore you
will perceive that the evil is a growing one.
I need not say that there is. evident wilfull
fraud manifested, by the putting into cotton
any foreign substance, such as sand, rocks,
seed, &c.,-and last but not least Water
which of all, is the most objectionable, from
the fact that it is the most common. The
purchaser not only losing the weight of the
water, but to a great extent the cotton also.
Will not some or all of the various Agricul
tural Associations, that have been, and are be
ing formed in the various Distriots, take cogni
zance of this evil. Some of the States have
interposed by Legislative enactment. I would
much rather that the necessity should not
arise here. I have but little doubt that many
cases occur through inattention on the part of
owners or overseers. The result in this case
even is the same to the purchaser; and who
most generally comes to the worst conclusion
in the premises.
There are many who designedly put their
cotton up in this way, under the belief that
the cotton cannot be traced back to them. I
will say to such,-they are under a misappre
hension. The shipping of cotton is so perfect
in system; that every.bale can be traced from
Liverpool back to the planter or the first seller.
Under that imprssion, I have no doubt but
that many are induced to persist in it. Many
sellers- of such cotton have been allowed to
pasa for the sake of feeling, when it is traced
beyond a doubt, to their door.
I say, therefore, in asmuch as the evil is a
growing one, the reputation of our State and
Nation demands i relief-and right and com
mon justice demands it. I trust that the
pride of our State will. never be again com
promised and humiliated by the record in
Liverpool or elsewhere-that a ftaudulent
packed bale of cotton cleared from a port in,
(or produced in) the State of South Carolina.
Then our proud motto will be
From the Farmer and Planter.
Have I made myself understood ? Judi
eious breeding is not breeding for looks, but
for form, substance, endurance and good quali
ty ; and the only way to obtain these, is by
the selection of mares and stallioni which
will transmit their peculiarities to their otf
sprinlg. Blood, although a good thing, is not
everything. A horse may have indomitable
~game-he may be able to travel ,a great dis
tance in a short time, hut, as the jocekey said,
ho may soon "rack his capital out." One
horse may be so formed as to move a great
weight by merely throwing his own weight
into the collar, while another, owing to a de
fect in form, would-be forced to an excessive
wear and tear of muscular power, to overcome
the' same resistance. .A farm horse, or a
draft horse, should be so constructed as to do
less he is able to do it from his conformation.
His levers, and-pullies, and muscle, and joints,
must be so fitted, and play into each other
like a perfect piece of machinery ; and, what
will maike him a fine mover under the saddle,
or on the race-course, will not enable him to
move a weight behlhd him, except at a waste
of nerve and muscle that will soon wear him
ont. We have bred to the blood horse so
long, in South Carolina, that our horses are
generally game enough,but wantingin stamina
and in the right sort of action. They are too
light in the body, too sloping and thin through
the shoulder, too narrow-rumped, and weak
across the loin. How are these defects to be
remedied ? Not by breeding to every little
camel-backed, bull-necked "Kanuck," or
French Canadian, that may come into the
country ; or to every horse called a Morgan,
or a Trotter, but to such horses as are notori
ous for getting good colts, and from such
mares as breed well. Never breed to a horse
of bad tepeor one whose colt. do not
work knlfrthese tricks may be trausmit
to others from generation to generation,
truh a very fine colt.
his it that the.Morgan horse has ob
tandsuch a wonderful popularity? It is
owing to the fact that they have been bred
carefully for a purpose, and that they have a
wonderful proclivity to stamp their peculiari
ties upon their offspring. The morgan is the
horse of New England ; he is prized, and has
been for a long time, above, all others; he
commands alwas a ready sale, at a high fig
ure. Everybd breeds to the horse that is
remarkable fo-getting the best colts, and he
breeds the best mares, because he is anxious
to secure a " trump ;" and that is the reason
the Morgan, and nothing else.
But we must not suppose that because -a
horse is a Morgan he must be a good horse to
breed'from. -*He should be a good foal-getter
-he should stamp his stock upon his colts.
Such a horse will always command a higher
price in New England than wi are willing to
give for him, and for that reason, we will not
-be ap o sueedin breeding good horses ui
-der our present system. It is miserable policy
to be going on in these guess-work experm
ments ; and as long as our people will insist
upon recognizing blood as the only recuisite
or cheapness, we will have a wishy-wasly set
of horses, and the breeders in Tennessee,
Kentucky, and the North, will get all the long
prices for fine animals
A few days since, in looking over a Ten
nesse rwe were surprised to see as ma
ny a sixorgaandTrottin stallions stand
ing in the same negbrhoalmost, at
$25. In Michigan, bedrs do not hesitate
to introduce stallios at such a figure as
$2,000 and $3,000; Lad it is worth noting,
that such operations pay well, because bree
ers are acting upon a certainty-they know
they will get an animal that will pay for the
trouble of raising him. It costa..no more to
raise a good horse than a bad one; and it
certainly is bad economy to save a few dollars
at the start, to lose a hundred at the end. I
am exceedingly anxious to draw the earnest
attention of our farmers to the importance of
devoting more attentioni to breeding horses.
The time is rappidly coming, when we will
find it necessary to introduce a mixed husban
. ror emigrate. Males and negroes will
fo6w the cotton-bales, and the march of the
cotton-bales must, like that of "Empire,
Westward" have its way. The introduction
of railroads will do away with the necessity
of much of the mule-power on the plantation,
and horses will be needed for light draft, more
and more, as social intercourse increases.
lmny farmiers are ready to argue that a
iiorse abetter than amule i farm work,
saw. wagoning, where they are worked and
eared for ba carefuzlwhite man. I believe
it is true. Ido not believe that the horse is
mnuch more subject to disease than the mule,
If properly treated; nor in the popular doc
trine, that he is shorter lived. Under good
treatment, he will perform almost double the
work, and do it kindly. Much of the preju
* duce against the horse originates from a com
iarison with the inferior animal We have
bred the best mares to the best jacks, and the
worst mare to the worst horses, as a geeral
rule. A FARME.,

How to Preserve Wheat in a Southern
bin. EDITOR :-I have been concerned in a
Wheat Mill for the last t wenty years, and-i to
the best of my judlgmsent onaetourth of the en
tire ca'op of wheat is lust every year.hy bad
management, anad one-half of the baaltnce
more oar less injured from the same cause. I
will give you nay pratctsie on the preservation
of Wheat. Wlheat should naot be cut too greetn
neither should it be too ripe-if so, there will
be considerable loss by gathering and shatter
iug out. Wheat should be bound up when
cut in small bundles and well shocked -in
small shocks to dry. At the ex;.iration of
eiht or ten days at most hanul it in and thrash
packed in houses to lay any time beflire hrash
mug is liable to get abused by rate anad white
weavils. Wheat when well sunned should be
put up In barrels or boxes not too much in a
place. If put up in large quantities it is sub
ect to heat and the black weatvil. I am told
to spread it on the floor does very well. -Neve
put covers over wheat thinking to keep out
raw for you can't do it-they are certain to
cut in and .abuse your Wheat. The best and
cheapest plan to prevent injury by rals, its to
leave the boxes containing the Wheat entire
ly open ; and keep a good supply of Cats
about the premises and allow them free access
to the granaries. Wheat injured by rats,
weavils or heating, spoils the flavor of the
flour, and is a great loss to all concerned, by
which the consumer suffers the most. Every
six weeks at most, I runa my Wheat through
the smutter to give it air ami cleanse it of the
insects that accumulate ina it. A good fan
will answer the same purpose if the nilating
bottom is lined with screen wire to convey thec
wheat from the fan, the insects will fall through
and of course will be separted from the WVheast.
In 1852 at the time my Miills were destroyed
by high water, I followed this practice anad
had a< good flour from wheat three years old
as the clay it was cut.
