that point. Ho does not deny that
white inmigration to the State is
inall, that white emigration is great,
oni that negrooimnigration from the

negroos "will slide down to the coast,"
rather proves that they will also slide
down from Virginia, Kentucky, North
Oarolina qud Tennessee.
. We are also obligod to dissent from
J. W. D's 6rgument that the number
of deathsAthong the whites being one
in 76, and among the blacks, one in
66, proves that the rate of'inoroase is
greater among the wbitosthan among

greatly doubt if the number of deaths
in the san)o number of native whites
was less than among the blacks.

fields in very little better condition, a
patch of original woods here and
there, and a few temporary buildings.

Nature we will learn from one of IIer
insects when to put the manure. It
might not be a bad plan to put some
deep and some shallow. Why not
run a deep furrow in the cotton mid
dles in early winter and frail down the
cotton stalks in it and lap on thema,
and let them decay by the time the
next crop will need the same sub
stances? To be able to do that, the
crop must b,e gathered early, and to
be able to gather early the crop must
be highly manured in order to make it
mature rapidly. Another advantage
will be that all the cotton will be

Address F. G. DeFontaine, Esq.,
A large number of dewborries are
brought into our town every day, and
as many of-our lady friends, doubt
less, are engaging themselves in wine
making, we publish for their benefit
the following recipe, for making that
delicious beverage Black and Dew
berry wine, which we clip from an'
exchange. It is as follows:
"To one gallon berries, put 2 tis.
1.oiling wan' 'e, and let them sandl
twenty-four hours ; then strain, and
add two lbs. of loaf sugar, to eaoh gal
lon of liquid;4 put up in demi obus or

When luckless printers stoop to credit,
And find too Into that men won't pay
What chnrms can soothe the scribes' who
What art can wash the doubt away ?
The only art their cnse can bttor,
To wring the mon )y when 'tis due,
To give repentance to the debtoo,
And wring his pockets-is to sue.

A New York paper says: "Our wo

the highest heeled boots, the most iw
possible bats and bonnets, and tw
worst novelties in gloves, which are
never even dreamed of in Parls-the
most exaggerated coiffures,. the great.
