J. Tho subjoined extract from the letter
t written by liient. Mtiury fo the Southern
Convention, contains souie facts which it
would he well for the citizens of nil the
1 States to consider, especially those who arc
' continually harping upon the superior cni
terprise of the free states. It exhibits
! the South in a plain and proper light :
' Tho Southern people have achieved
great things ; and though it is common to
taunt them lor a lack of that energy and
enterprise which characterize the people of
. the North, yet I have long beer, of the
I opinion ihnt, if the balance could be fairly
: struck, it would appear that the native energy,
enterprise and industry ofthe South
have contributed quite as largely as the
i vaunted enterprise of (lie North has done
to the national wealth of these United
States. Both sections have done marvellously,
and far be it from me to disparage
either. I only wish to state a fact or two
that I may induce you to take a view with
me from my stand point, and see if those
I wno uniw?:\na tncir name is legion?uufavorable
contrasts between the North and
South for clergy and enterprise, do not
draw their conclusions more from the apparent
than the real state of things. Let
us throv; little Delaware, out of the question
as belonging properly neither to the slavery
or auti-slavery side of Mason and Dixon's
line; we shall then see that we commenced
our career as a nation with seven free
and five slave States : that the five nricr.
f ... V..Q .
itial slave States, have, of their own ener'
tries, almost entirely alone and unaided by
foreign immigration, reclaimed, from the
( savage and tho wilderness, nine or other
wealthy and flourishing prosperous States j
I that the seven original free States have also
reclaimed nine others no less wealthy,
flourishing or prosperous; but to do this,
the seven Northern States have had the ass
bistance and capital which nearly the whole
3 foreign immigration has brought with it
into the country. When Arkansas was
c settled, it was done merely bv the transfer
f of so mucli population from some other
r slave States; but when Wisconsin was sctt
tied, it was settled not merely by thetrans!
fer of one population from the other free
p States, but in a great measure by people
. from beyond the sens, who brought, with
them so much industry and wealth. Now
if we could detect the value which the foreign
immigration has added to the wealth
of the North, and then if we could compare
r the internal improvements of the South,
and the value of the property of all sorts
in the fourteen slave States, with the internal
improvements and property in the sixteen
free States?we should see that, nc
wunuuj^ iu me population, me >>outii lias
gone much farther than the industry of
' the North towards the creation of national
* wealth. .But the achievements of the
- South in its feats of industry and itnprovct
ment, arc quietly made, and the press of
? the South has nut the multitudinous voicc
which enables that of the north to inalW'
r itself hcifRX?i..u *ho four quarters of the
Cdlture ofthk Bi.ackberky.?The Agri
culturist has the following with reference to
the Lowton blackberry :
f " As a markpt crop, wo think this black.
berry would nay well. They arc as easily
cultivated as a corn crop, and need no second
planting. Set them six or ci^ht feet apart,
' and the only caro required i? to koo>i out
! weed . and the excess of plants that continu.
i ally spring up over the gifl^nd if not kept

covering it over with a layer of straw or re1
fuse hay is useful. It would be well to work
into the soil n rrood Kiinnlv nf vn?l mntmrA

before setting out the plants. On poor soil,
. an occasional top-dressing of manure may be
, "It will be noticed by those unskilled in
blackVicrry culture, that, like the raspberry,
fruit u only produced upon canes of the pre"
vious summer's growth. The plants can be
> set in autumn or spring, though wo much
prefer autumn, as they got well rooted and
i_ usually yield more new canes tbe following
summor than if not set until spring.
" The plants bear transplanting and car?
riago well. Tho chief caution to bo observed
is, to have the ground ready prepared before
opening the plants, and set them at once,
- without exposure to sun or wind. Thesamo
remark applies to raspberries, and indeed to
nil other plants. They appear, thus far, to
5 grow well on almost any soil. Somo recommend
moist loam, or even clay. Tho best
I growth and fruiting wo have seen is upon a
, rocky side hill, though perhaps not hotter
. than others <in a dark muck and peaty soil.

Tho English Indian Army.
It uuty not be uninteresting to our readera
to know that the Knglish Indian Army
ut this time is the most gigantic garrison
that the pages of history gives record of.?
It is a subject full of thought and room for
This army holds in subjugation 120,000,000
of British subjects,and 40,000,000
of dependent natives of ilindostan, of all
manner of races, religions, and languages
?the latter, wo believe, amounting to twenty-five
distinct tongnes besides an incalculable
number of local dialects. This may be
called its home service; it has likewise to
deal > about 10,000,000 of Persians}
5,0' ,n of AlVghans, 1,500,000 Beloehe:
, o.o00,000 of independent States in
Ilindostan, and 5,000,000 of Burmese,
with most of whom they have been at war
within the last few years, to say nothing
ot an occasional protcssional debate with
China?whose population amounts to 400,000,000.
The force tlint is to perforin this
feat amounts to about 30,000 of all denominations,
and its composition mitst henceforth
be matter of deep reflection to all
who feci that the sword is, in the last resort,
the real tenure of England's Indian
empire. 1)f the Queen's troops there are
under 5)00,000 men ; of all the Europeans
in the East India Company'**service, under
20,000, including officers attached to native
rcgimotits; and they can hardly number
less than 6,000, and probably exceed that
number considerably. The natives in the
Company's service amount to 210,000 and

addition to this they have the contingent
troops of the native States, commanded by
British officers, and available, under treat*
ies to the British Government, amounting
to about <>2,000, of whom we learn on?? of
the principal bodies, Sciudiah's the (Clwalior
contingent,) 8,400 strong, has already
moved to English assistance j and Tlolkar
and the Raj h of Nagpore are bound by
treaty to furnish contingents, the former
of 8,000, and the latter of 1,000 horse;
but these latter troops are not commanded
by British officers.
The disproportion between the Europeans
and Asiatics jo tin; Company's service
is striKing enougn, nut ovon tins uocs not
represent the number of natives actually
in arms in India. Scindiah, for instunuft,
who has lately so loyally tendered his aid,
furnishes the British with the H,100 men
before alluded to ; but for his own purpose
of government and police lie keeps on foot
22,000 men, and can in time of war produce
00,000 horsemen, 20,000 infantry,
and a well-organized artillery, llolkar i?
bound to furnish the English with 3,000
horse, but lie keens 30,000 and 4.000 in
fimtrjr of liin own ; and altogether the personal
military resources of the native princes
of India do nut fall much short of 400,000
men, not. including the polico corps ot
the quotas which the military ehiofn arc
bound to furnish to their feudal superiors.
No doubt when the military force of a native
prince is not under the command ot
European officers it is rarely rogulwrly paid,
