Introduction of the Jute Plant
in Newberry, S. C.
Tios. F. Greneker, Editor of the New
DEAR SiR.-I have seen it stated fre- i
quently that the above plant was super
ceding cotton. The production of cotton
in India was greatly stimulated by the
high prices incident to our late war, but
since its conclusion it has been checked
by a decline of prices. Jute on the
contrary, though it also received a
stimulus from the war, still continues
to increase. It is the che'apest fibre
produced, and on that account has been
and still is extensively used as a sub
stitute for cotton. In India the land
which in ordinary years returns about
70 lbs. of cotton per acre, in Jute
yields 550 lbs., and is more easily cul
tivated. The writer has this season
four rows growing fiom seed imported
from India. If I can introduce the
plant in this State it does appear to me
that it will greatly develop our pros
peritn he cotton fabrics from the
looms of England have broken down
the cotton manufacture, once carried on
to great perfection in India, but the
manufacture of Jute is replacing it.
Its manufacture requires little capital,
skill or machinery. The export of cot
ton from India decreases, while the ex
port of Jute from that country shows an
increase of 50 per cent. in a single year.
Jute is applied to a variety of uses, and
our gunny cloth and bags is made from
it. The value of Jute imported from
India alone to the United States in one
year in gunny cloth amounts to the
enormous sum of $5,500,000, and be
sides, Jute is grown in France and Al
-giers. The plant will grow from four
feet to sixteen feet high. I deem it a
great acquisition to the South, and if we
will devote to Jute a part of our cotton,
I think we will accomplish several im
portant objects. Its culture will intro
duce a diversity of pursuits. Our ten
dency is to over production in cotton,
and if we would bnly make three mil
lion bales we would receive as large a
return as four millions of bales give us.
IA half million bales of Jute would save
several millions of dollars sent out of
the Cotton States every year to purchase
gunny cloth, and it is said that Jute can
be produced for one-eight the cost of
It has been in good demand, and sells
in Boston from six to seven cents per
pound, and is fast gaining upon cotton
and superceding it. I hope the South
ern States will surely not be in the rear
in introducing this plant in this branch
of agricultnre. Besides, it would em
ploy female labor. If I succeed in ob
taining seed from what I have planted,
I hope to be able to distribute some next
year. If any persons wish to see it
grow they can do so by coming to the
Four Mile House, where it can be seen.
In the future I may give directions for
cultivation and preparation for market.
It is not -only. used for gunny cloth, but
but much of it is used in carpets and
other fabrics as a substitute for wool,
cotton, flax and hair. It does appear to
me if the Grangers would take this
matter in hand we might do wonders.
MEMBER BETI1 EDEN GRANGE.
Edgefield, in addition to its other
woes and burdens, is developing cata
mounts. Nor do we joke. It is literally
true. On our table at this moment lies
the paw of a huge Catamount, killed at
Red Hill two days ago, by our friend
Mr. B. F. Glanton-on his own planta
tion-in the wild and goody fork of
Stevens and Turkey Creeks. Serious
and singular depredations had been
noticed for a long time, and a watch
having been kept up, the trail of the
Catamount was finally discovered. He
was pursued into the swamp by a party
of hunters, where after a - fierce and
bloody fight, he was dispatched by the
unerring rifle of Mr. Glanton. The
animal weighed 90 lbs., and was tre
mendously strong and savage. It was
a male. Not a wild-cat. The latter is
never so large, and has a very long tail.
A regular catamount! Our Glanton
catamount had a short, stump tail. This
is really true-and most certainly re
markable. Our friend Ben is keeping
a sharp lookout for the female wild
beast, but we hope, if he should dis
cover her, that lie will not kill her. We
want her for judicial purposes. We
will explain when we meet.
CADET ERiNEST A. GARLINGTON. -

Academy, West Point, and see con

Carolinian as Orator of the day.
It is pleasing to know that this dis
tinguished honor has been conferred
upon one who has been promoted at
each succeeding examination of his
class during the three years he has been
a cadet at the Academy, and gratifying
to see our Southern youth again repre
sented at West Point, and claiming the
palm of oratory.
His father, Gen. A. C. Garlington,
graduated with distinction, taking the
first honor at the University of Georgia,
and in the days of Dr. Thornwell, his
uncle, Prof. Robt. Garlington ,graduated
with the first honor in the South Caro

ff on last Thursday. The evidence
vas very conflicting, the witnesses on
he part of the State, all colored,
wearing that they saw Hardy shoot
3luford, while those brought in for
he defense, both white and black,
wore that Hardy did not shoot Blu
ord. On the part of the defense
he case was very ably argued by
Uessrs. Muornian & Schumpert, of
ewberry, and Gen. M. W. Gary, of
Zdgefield. Friend Schumpert, though
iuprepared, acquitted himself hand
omnely; and though we were always a
vari friend and great admirer of T.
. oorian. we were not prepared for
he sDIendid effort made by him in
he defense of his client. Gen. Gary,
vho is known as one of the best, if
iot -tle best criminal lawyer in the
