Letter from Hou, B. H. Hill,
b t1e Edtors of the :Augus(a Chronicla
I am reeiving quite a number of
invitations to address the people in
Georgia and the adjoining States. It
would be agreeable to mo if I could
write an answer to each speolfio re-.
quest. But 1 cannot do so, and, un
dor no ciroumstances, could I possi
bly attend one-tenth of the meetings.
I must, therefore, bog the indulgonce
of our friends to receive this as the
reply to such of their letters as I do
not answer In person.
The time hits now arrived when no
inafi Wh loves his country, or desiros
its polie and Prospority, caln vithhold
liis skipportf tho Delnocratic par
t-y. Vliatov .o.nsiderations may
have heretofore seemed.o exist to in
duco or inclil'e any of our p)ep o to
accept, its a temporary expedieti, the
Reconstruction measures, havo co4
tainly provon fallacioul. The plain,
leading idea of the Chicago plat.
form 1, to mat Ain these odious moos
tires in the ten States as porpetital
over the peoplo and supremo over the
Constitution. The plainly avowed
ieans of secturing these onds consist
in making, by Congressional action,
the Southern States vassal3 to the
Northern States, and Southern whites
vassals to the Southern blacks. In
view of these now deolared purposes
of the Radical party, hoiv fortunate is
it that the Southern white voters did
not accept theso measures ! If we
had accepted, the National Denocra
cy would have been compolled to
abide them, or subject the party to
the severe ohargo of seeking to over
turn what the qualified voters of the
States lad agreed to and established,
and, thereby, of promotilg another
revolution ; whereas, as we rejected
them, the Radicals are subjected to
the truthful, but terrible, chargo of
seeking to perpetuate upon the white
race of the South' governments which
have received no approval or suipport
except from deceived negroes and
worthless adventurers, and], thereby,
of continuing a revolution which had
no origin but in passion, which canl
have no existence but in strife, and
no end but in blood ? It is plain,
theref'ore, that all of our fullow-citi
zeiis who have beeti inclined to accept
these meastures from wlhatever motives
of policy, must now, ill vindication of
their own sincerity, abandon them,
and joiml the party Which nobly do
clares these "tisurpations, revolutiona
ry, unconstittitional and void I" And
no man will welcome to our ranks all
such more cordially tian myself.
For though I never had the slightest
faith in the wisdom or practicability
of tile idlea of accepting, with a view
of rejecting what we accepted, yet I
never question the motives of a sin
core man who d iffers with mo as to the
best motives of accomplishing a grave
end. Nor lave I ever uttered a
word, which, jiistly construed, canl
ever indicate the contrary. I do
most heartily rejoice at the now mani
fest prospect of seeing every decent
white man in the South united with
us in the glorious work of rebuking
this monstrous iniquity, its author.s,
advocates and supporters.
Junsa Kltn A lIA n.--We learni, says the
Augusta Chronaicle uand Senth.el, that at large

These may be a port ion or 11he arms which

when arrested inll ancock a few- days since,
wore furnished by Governor II ullock. It is
a very serious matter and shotuldl receivo
11he thotughttful consideration of the people.
We also learn that. on Studay last, when
the disturbanmce occurred at Johnsen's lleer
Garden on thie border of the city, mlore than

now U. S. rifles, collcCtedl in a very few

lIn othler sect ions of the State the Same
system of drilling antd arming of a portion or
the blacks, seems to be in process of com

the Columbus Sun from Stewart county,
"Considerable apprehension Is felt in this
country, in regard to the conduct of the ne,.
groes. They arc orgamtzed into military
companIes, are armed to a considerable ex
tent, and drill regularly. Their colored
speakers tso very Incendiary languiage.--..
Pullock has been informed of tihe facts."
'No0 are reluctantly cnvinced, from ther o

Some soils will grow clover vitlout

enolhIl for wheat, or good fresii iphlnjl,
with a clay foundation, from which the
salts have not been extracted by cilti
vation. But, no upland need be sowed
with clover, that will not bring, of a fair
year, ten bushels of wheat, or twentv
five to thirty bushels of corn. Almost
any oak or hickory upland, in woods, if
the timber is cut down and burned, ex
cept rail timber, and ashes spread care
fully: will bring good clover. Ashes
are an admirable manure for clover. It
is the gencral practice, at the North,
when clearing such lands, to harrow in
whot with clover. Thie wheat, of a good
year, pays for the clearing. It is not
broken up for corn until the third or
fourth year, when the roots are all deal],
and the plowing is easy for man and
beast. This is certainly the proper mi1etlh
i odl of clearing and treating hlod, where
ihe timber is not, valuable.
Bit, some persons will say , I(\\We
..ave always understood that clover is
an improver of iand."' So it is. - Ih. the
land must first be made rich dnoughi, if
not, so naturaliv, to give the clove' a
good start. Then. with l' proper rota
tion, ani a proper treatment of the clo
ver, tile land will continue to improve
without other manure, nid without re
sowing t.l clover. For instance, a
piece of geounld is in clover, which has
_gone to seed. Let it be turned over
deeply with a two horse plowv, planted
in corn, cultivated shallow, sowed in
oats in the fall, and the next fall, t he
stubble be turned over, deeply, with a
t,wo horse plow, and sowed in wheat.
The buried clover seed brought to the
surface, by the last plowving, will vege
tate. Let, the land oemain in clover two
or thiree ye ars,.and repeat the above or
a similar rotation, The improvement
of land, so treated, will be steady an~d
valuable, while, each year, it is 'paying
a handsome imterest.
It wvould occuipy too much space to
enter upon a dlescription of the special
manures for clover. Tho general re
mark may be made that, any manure,
t.hat w ill make good wheat, wvill make
good clover. The wheat ought to pay for
A gallon of seed is snfliciont for an

The best time to sow the seed1 is about
the time of sowing turnips. Sown so
early, if without grain, it may be cuit or
pastured the 1,ext spring, if wvith wheat
it should not b)0 sown later thani the
middle of October. -If not sown by that
time, it will be better to defer iit until
