Southern Emigration to Brazil.
Tho planters of Lafourcho, LouiBiana, lately
?ickl a meeting to discuss tho subject of ouiigra
iion to Brazil. Tho Thibodoau Sentinel eiieukB of
them ns native-born Louisinnians, who havo como
to tho conclusion, after repeated oiTorts to sustain
iho planting interests, that tho cultivation of tho
augur cano must be abandoned for lack of labor
ers; that there aro ninety-nine chances to ono
?gainst the bucccbb of cotton culture; and a gen
eral cultivation of corn, as a last resource, would
cvprstock tho market and ruin tho planter.
Tho Sentinel editorially declares that tho agri
cultural prospects of tbo State are not aB gloomy
as then?: planters think, and adds that, even if tho
evils of which thoy complain be irremediable, the

The present population of Chicago is reckoned
at something over 200,000, which ?b double what
tho city had in 1860. Tho directory shows 11,000
moro names than last year. There are bare
ly sufficient tenement houses to accommodate
this rapi? growth. By 1867 it ?b expected that
two great undertakings will havo been accom
plished?the tunnel under Lake Michigan for a
?upply of puro water, and tho lowering of tho Uli
moiB and Michigan Canal below tho level of tho
lalio in order that tho Chicago River may connect
tho two, and so be cleared of its impurities, which
.have long annoyed and endangered tho city. Last
year the fire-alarm telegraphic system was put in
operation. Building, manufactures and commerce
havo all flourished in spite of the war. Periodical
literature is abundant; thero aro six dailies, two of
"which are in German.

McBBrs. Fisher k Haskcll, Cotton Planter? at Newborn, N. C, write, July, 18C5, as followa:
"The Phosphate of Lime we purchased of you give? good satisfaction. Last year we applied fifty-five (55) ton? to
three hundred and Bcvcuty-fivc (375) acres of land for cotton, say about (?WO) three hundred pounds per acre. We rub?
bed the seed in the PhoBphate, and aleo sowed It in tho drill with the seed at the time of planting. On a portion o? "
the land we applied a top dressing of the Lime at the second hoeing. Throughout the season the cotton plants grew
well?tiie lcaveji were of a darle, healthy color, and no nusr " was seen on tho plantation. The ravages of the
1 army worm prevented us from realizing the benefit from our outlay for the Lime in full, still the large number ot
. partly grown bolls and forms gave some idea of what tho crop would have been could they have matured. Al
though wo saved a large quantity of manure on the place last year, our confidence in the value of your Phosphate
led ?iH to purchase of you last spring seventy tons, one-half of which we used ourselves, and the balance waa
- bought for a friend, who wan satisfied of its worth in cotton culture. At the time of writing this, our crop is look
ing finely and promises an abundant yield. Ono portion of our plantation consista of highlands with a clay sub
Boil running near the surface; the remainder is flat and inclined to be sandy. The owner of the place tolls us that.
he did not succeed with cotton on this last part; but owing, as we think, to the liberal use of your Phosphate, wo
have now a good crop growing upon it. This is but the second season of cotton growing with us; still, from our
experience thus far, wo do not hesitate to recommend your Phosphate of Lime as a manure well adapted to tho
f wants of the cotton planter. ' '

" Professor J. J. Mapes? Dear Mrs I bought twenty bags of your Nitrogenizcd Superphosphate of Lime, of
your Agents, Messrs. H. k N. E. Solomon, Hamburg, 8. C. (who solicited a statement of its ofTects), and applied it
v to forty acres of my poorest cotton land.
This land is on the public road, where its effect? were seen. My neighbor?, who are acquainted with the land,
*" were astonished at the luxuriant growth of the cotton where I used your Superphosphate. It produced better cot
ton and a larger amount, than on my good land; less work was needed in making the cotton than on my other
land. Not apartide of rust was to be seon where I applied your Superphosphate, while the rust pro?.ailed over
every other portion of the crop.
ov-ry ?m _ Respectfully your?, DAVID PAYNE.
j,-OTE_Mr. Payne's good land compares favorably wit ft the best cotton lands on the Saluda River. The ?aluda
i- bottoms are proverbial for producing large quantities of cotton.
Co_-_tbia, 8. C, October 18, 1850.
Mr. J. J. Mapes? Dear Sir: In reply to yonrs of tho 1st lnst., 1 cheerfully state: I have used Mapes' Nitre .
centred Superphosphate of Lime on my cotton of the present year, and am perfectly satisfied with its yield.
I can recommend it to my neighbors with confidence, as a pure and effective manure, and would give it the
?reference to any other In the market

Mr. Charle? W. Mixon, of Edcnton, Chowan County, N. C, writes to Mr. Bockover:
j In rogard to MapeV Phosphate it worked admirably for me, the product being fully equal if not superior *o -
* both tho manures before mentioned. It did not start tho young plant as early as either the other manures; but it
u" seemed to retain it? color and pods much better, and no symptom of rust was ever seen where it was applied?a_t
at the land I planted in cotton being about the samo quality and strength. CHARLES W. MIXON.
Extract from a letter from Colonel Gideon Dowse, of Berzella, near Augusts, Ga., August, I860:
J. J. Mates?Dear Sir: I have no hesitation In saying that on my own farm your Superphosphate has been,..
and is now, superior in its effects, where I have applied it on my cotton, to either lot-manure or cotton seed; and,.
?- as compared to the land without manure in the same field (in my opinion the only true way to test it), it is as four -
- to one in the number of grown bolls, and as ten to ono in the young fruit and forms, in favor of tho Superphos
id This opinion Is formed from a close and critical examination by my overseer and myself. There Is ono result.
from its application, which, if it had nothing else to recommend it, is of Incalculable value, and that Is, It doesv .
seem to guard against thai worst enemy of the cotton plant, uamely, tho rust.
I have applied it to laud that invariably rusts cotton, and there ?b as yet not a sign of rust in it, while the samo
kind of land Just adjoining is complete i y ruined by it already.
This experiment osnnrms that inado by Mr. Lomas, of S. C, last year; and I am fully persuaded that any plant?.
manured with it does withstand a drought better and keeps green longer than with any other application thai, has -.
come under my notice I have seen cotton, corn, okra, melons and other garden plants, that havo kept green
MM, during the terrible drought that has so completely destroyed all our gardens, and my nutmeg melons are as green
and blooming as beautifully as In spring.
I have written this as tho result of my Judgment from close observation. When I shall have gathered my crops :
It will give me pleasure to give you the result from actual weight and measure.
Yours, GIDEON DOTO&.

of "We hsvo, in the course of an extensive agricultural correspondence, gathered evidence of the superior valu?'
.? of Mapes' Nitrogenlzed 8ui?en>h?i?pUate of Lime upon tho cotton fields of the South, whero Peruvian Guano had
* ' been used with partial success. The bolle have been /trailer, and of greater number, the yield of cotton per acre hast
11 been larger, and what is also of the greatest consequence, no rust is discovered in cotton fields where this article 1st
applied, to which may be added its peculiar lasting power of fertilization, and its comparative cheapness. These.
A fids have come to us in correspondence from parties who have used other like agents, and who give this by far tho
i'We have arrived at the conclusion, after considerable experiment ourselves, and of careful search for the re
sults of tho trials of others, that Mapes' Fertilizer has more of tho property needed in a central manure, in horticul
ture and. agriculture, than any thing else of the kind we are acquainted with."

na 3. 3. Mapes, Esq., New York?Z><-?ir Sir: I bought four tons of yonr Superphosphate of Lime foi- my cotton- "
crop, also some guano, and have tried them side by side on tho samo quality of land. Not a particle of rust was to
be seen whero your Superphosphate was used; and I also applied stable manure? on a portion of my land Tho
cotton had the mot whon tho latter was used. The yield of cotton wits splendid when tho Superphosphate war
used, despite the extraordinary dry year. When I applied the other manure the yield was not good.
I appliod tho Superphosphate st tho rato of 100 lbs. per acre, and believe It would havo paid better If I had put
?,? more per acre. "
, I sold my cotton in Hamburg yesterday at ,'io. per pound over tho usual market price. The lint was consid?
a%l ered very strong and heavy. I consider yours a ro'lablo manure.
