Our Duty and Policy.
The result of the late Presidential
olection places the Southern peoplo in
an exceedingly embarrassing position,
and they need all wisdon and pru
doneo to steer safely through the po
litical breakers by which they are
now surrounded. 'their situation is
embarrassing from various eause.s, tho
nature of whioh is known to us all.
The defeat of Grooley may have tho
tondoncY to place the S.,tth in a falso
position, inasnuch as ho received his
entire support from this seetion of the
Un ioni, while lhe proved di.tasteful to
the Nort hern palate. But when it is
rem iebred that his acceptance by
the Sou I was looked upon as a peaco
meicasure, and as an ini ation that her
people wore ready "to clasp hands
acro.,s the Llordy chasm," her courso
cannot :. r wher than patriotic,

The result of the late oleotion, sayl

be a source ot considerable solace t(
every Southern heart. We presum4
that there is no reason to doubt nov
the authentioity of the reports which
have been undenied, that the Conser.

by several thousand majority. Thi

of the Kellogg Custom House clique

re-organization of the State, unde1

and an utter disregard of the true in
terests of the commonwealth, hav
there as hero cbaracterizd the rul(

doubtless, take a btund forward or

we can discover, why every Sou.hert

Speech of President Woodward before
the Agricultural and Mechanical As.
sociation of South Carolina.
Upon being-oonducted to the chair
by Messrs. 1uhvjor, Felder and Gary,
Major Woodward, tendered his
thanls in the following brief but ex
pressive charactea istIc qpeech :
I am very prond, gentlemen, of the
high 'bonor th-at you have cmnferred
upon me. I regard it the most en
viabld position to which an honest
t man date now aspire in South ('aro.
i lina. I am well aware, however, that
r these honors are duo to no merit or
sure you that they are eve, the moreS
Sappreciated when I say that in my
S opinion they are the result only of
a the hindly personal feelings of the
a members of the Society towards me.
And,bhene it is that I nssume the du
ties of your . presiding oflicer, not
a .without feelings of hesitancy, for I
I well knew that there has never been
t. a time in the history of the affairs of
this Society, when greater wisdom
and mere general business tact and
energy,w wore demanded of its ofiicers.
6 There is within me however, a spirit,
I a prnioiple, which forbids that I
a should evade any responsibility
devolved upon me by Carolina
' gentlemen ; and if tinme develops
as I fear it will, that I am not
the mian for the place,-'pon your
shouldera rests the responsibility, for
I can truthfully declare that I have
~evinced no ambition in this matter.
Many and grave difficulties surround
us, it is true. Our financial affairs as
iyou all know are in a critical condi
tion, The signs of the times, I am
sorry to say indicate that we have
enemies-jealous of our success, en.
vipus of our gentility.
The ,Oovernment under which
we Jive, has jso far shown only
an inclination to retard agriculture,
to plunder agriculturalists. Bu~t de
spite all these difficulties, under the
leadership of Carolina's own distini.
gni'bed son ;-mzy courteous,ecult iva
I ed and practical predecossor, much
very tzuch has been accomplished.
Why not then, taking heart by the
past and hopiog for bettor things uin
drtefir promtises of the recently
elected State aduministration, but re
lying~r solely upon our oton energies, push
forward the consummation of thiu
Igreat apd glorious work so auspieious
ly biegon. TIhero are other and dear
er Issues Involved in our existence
than dollars and cente. With our
fall goes down theo last lingering, visi
ble vostigo of Carolina's gloiions
ante b.ellumn institutions ; vanishes her
only emblem of civIiition. With
out- failuro departs for a season at
least, those inducements that call us
together isi this noble old City, samdly
cheanged it Is true, but still the belov
jed Mecca to which Carolina's sons an d
daughters are wont to make their
yearly pilgriidage, and enjoy that
sweet communion with each other, so
elevailg to our natures, so purifyinig
to our souls, and to obtain that temn.
1 orary oblivion of our distress so
solkolsig to us in our advesity. In
doderments then are not wanting for
continued and renewed energies. For
myhdlf I will say this, having boon
honored by yone confidence as I have
been, and aided by the counsels of
wise Inen upon my EzeootLve Com.
mittee, with I believe the best and
most indefatigable Secretary in the
State, and relying upon those gener.
ons exertions that have ever ebarac
terized you, I shall, sumnmoning what
ever of judgment and energy I am ja
pable of bringing to bear, bolily un
furl our industrial banner, and con
fidently invoke for us that success
that I am sure awaits the proper ex
penditure of energy.
Is it not wonderful how our South.
ern planters, even those who try to
raise their own provisions and are as
much opposed as you are to buying
Northern hay to food their stock,
cannot be persuaded to grow lucerne,
which, in my opinion, is the most
valuable forage crop there is ? A
few try a little millet, a few-the
number is happily increasing-have
a clover patch ; but the main depend
once to feed the stock is fodder,
which is by far the most expensive
long stook feed we raise. Scarenly
any one raises lucerne, which, if
sown with ordinary care on well pre
pared, clean land, will yield two or
three heavy cuttings of excellent hay
the first year and Jour or live every
year for five or six years, without any
labor except the cutting and an ocea
sional top dressing in the fall. Muelh
as I admire clover I think lucerne is
preferable for forage. The yield is
larger, it does not salivate stock as
second growth of clover will ; it is a
better milk prod ucing food, and ill
sorts of stock like it. clite as well as
they do clover. As ihe time is now
at hand when luecrre sh''uld be sown, I
I ask a pInec in your columns to -urge
its value upon your readers, and to
give a few hints as to its cultieic.
The best land for lucerne is that
which has been in corn, and well cul
tivated so as to be clear of weeds and
grabs. The richer the land, whether
naturally or attiticially, the better.
There is no usc in sowing lucerteo on
poor, thin land. It will not p-Iv.
The land Imuit be dleeiply broke, we-l
hubsoiled, thoroughly pul verized, and
made pertectly clean. A deep, pir.
ons seed-led is eseintial. .A libe.ral
surface dressing of lime betre pl w
ing corn land will be fo:unid to Ie
profitable, and if the lanild Ie I't vIe r
rich, it cannot b1" to) heivil.. .
I would sow in drills tVent v ii -he,
apart in the first oI. third wectk of
October. I rccomeinil the r ill
sou ing because it, enaid s you to keep
the '(op (ite clean of weeds 1111d
grass during the eatly stages (f its

it will soon take entire posses-ion
and hold its own ngainst all in trud ers.
If sown in October the young piais

seed, purohnused fron a se(ed sman t who
