^poetry over tho mind of the old Greek
; was beautifully and truthfully shown by
rj the fact, that in his Theology, the Goa
Who guided the sun in his course was the
5 Same who presided in the realm ol music.

It is not a subjeet fur reasoning, but

glorious productions, was himself stono
deaf, and when, in reading over his own
grand pieocs his soul seemed ravished
with delight, the untaught people who
witnessed the touching scene wondered
that ho could appreciate thc music.
They kuew not tho great truth that tho
fond mother, Genius, knows her offspring
intuitively, and delights in tho children
ef her own- rearing, iu whatever manucr
they may bo prcseuted to her.
She fondles tho in her bosom, presses
thom passionately to lier own throbbing,
swelling heart, with such delight aa only
thc mother can know. It ono door of
her house is closed by thc ruthless hand
ef Misfortune, she hastens to throw
opcu another through which her loved
ones may gladly conic in und exult in
the gushing tenderness nf a fond moth?

closed forever, but bid eyo was slill open
and through this window of tho soul did
his music float, and stir his heart to

CHARLESTON, S. C., January lit, 1810.
Respecting the morita of the Ammoniated Solable Super-Phosphate of Lime which I used lut
nenson upon my Cotton landa, I would elute thnt it lins exceeded my expectations, its oppllcstloi
having been attended with the most favorable resalta^ I used it in connection vith the p?pela
Phosphates of the day nnd Peruvian Guano, ?nd unhesitatingly give the preference lu Messrs. Va.
Crichton A Hon's Atntnonioted Super Phosphate, which I regard us the best fertiliser for Cotton Oil
bas been ofiored to the public.

.In reply to your enquiry regarding Wm. Crichton A Son's Auituoniaied Fertilizer >ent to ta.UM
spring, I cnn give my own nnd Mr. J. M. Fowler's experiments. I trie I it on Cotton, side by ?iii
with Peruvian Guano-costing tl 12 per tan-and in the some quantity, and the diff?rence wm en
aiderable. being in favor of the Fertilizer. The Cotton grow fmdl two to throe inches taller, lit
wita bolled in proportion.
Mr. Fowler, one of ?ur best farmers, and closest and moat accurate observen., told me h. trlei
Peruvian Guano, Soluble Pucific. Wando Fertiliser, and six or seven others, tho cheapest of ebltb
cost $65 per ton, und Crichton's Fertilizer beat them all.

I used Wm. Crichton A Son's Ammoniated Phosphate on both Corn and Cotton, at the rsl?of
200 putinds to the acre. The results were very good, although we had a very dry season. Isa
satisfied it is a valuable manure, as it was applied on poor land, which is tbe place to test anvtbiif
of this kind. I recommend it to planters as a good fertiliser.

"Thia year I have experimented with ten diffbrcnt fertiliseT nf tho must popular brands-sei
"Wir. Crichton A Son's Ammonioted Soluble Super-Phosphate ol Lime" ?sat present onlr equslltd
by two of the manures. I nm not quite thr ugh picking, but ibero is so little yet lo be picked, (bit
it will not materially alter ti e above statetnei t or result.
I can without hesitation recommend this fertiliser to planters as a No. 1 Cotton Manure.

"I used tho AtnmoT ia'od Super-Phosphnto nf Limo of Wm. Crichton A Son on thn-e acres of Cot?
ton. The summer was remarkably dry; yet I am well pleased with the result. The yield of Collo?
being much greater where the fertiliser was used, and paying me handsomely. I can cheerfully r?
commend it as a first class fertiliser. The weil known integrity of the manufacturen- is asufficint
guurantee for its uniformity."

Messrs. Wm Crichton A Son, Ballimore:
"I write to say, that so far as I have heard from tho "AMMONIATED SOLUBLE SOPBR
PHOSPHATE," the reports aro very favorable indeed. Several planters who have used Hist sid
the Peruvian Guano sido by side, say they cannot distinguish any difference* I have used both, IN
think your fertiliser shnws fully ns well ns the Peruvian, and believo them wilt be * great deiat&d
