IMPBOVED COTTON CULTUBE_The energy
and intelligence of the Southern plautor ls being
brought to lear in numerous efforts to enlarge the
amount of cotton grown per acre as well as to im?
prove the quail ty, and we are hopeful that a rapid
advance may be looked for in this direction tn a
short time. IheYorkville (S. C.) Enquirer, of the
14th instant, says :
A gentleman in Edgefield, in this State, raised last
year fifteen hundred pounds of lint cotton to one
acre of land. He planted two stalks to the hip, at a
distance of e:pht feet each way. 'J bc hills -nero
prepared each woy as it for transplanting fruit trees,
being dug down to a depth of twenty inches and two
feet diameter. Sandy loam and manure were then fill?
ed in, and the seeds planted. The enormous yield ls
attributable to the thorough sub-soiliug, thc man?
ure and the space-thc latter being ?ufflci?ntto al?
low the rays of the sun to penetrate to the lower
branches ot the plant and develope these tully. As
cotton is essentially a sun plant never tb ri vim: un
le? - fully supplied with sun warmth, the philosophy
of this method is at once apparent. Another method
has been tried iu Union District with the Dixon im
piwed seed. This is 11 subsoil deeply, and plant in
bills three feet each way, thinning out the plants
when large enough, to two in each hill. About fif?
teen hunored pounds of seed cotton to the acre was
obtained trr.m a five acre field planted, late in the
spring, in thi.- way.
NOBTHEBN RADICALS ON SOUTHERN PBOS
PECIS.-The New York Tribune of Wednesdoy says:
Border State and Southern bonds continu? strong
and active. Thc question of free labor seems to be
solving it-eli very rapidly in the South; from all the
accounts wc have tho planters of cotton and sugar
are realizing the fact that they are makins more out
ot ftee labor than they ever did out of slave. The
rise ic plantations during tho past few mot.ths has
been verv groat Thc New Orle, ns Crescent hays of
sugar plantations :
"Plantations which were bought for $10,000 two
years ago, the owners now could get $30,01)0 ?or. One
which was bought about two months agj for
$130,?J0, the ownerrefused $170,000 for. Of course,
this is not to be wondered at, when the net proceeds
of r'ontations that can be bought for $30,0C0 or
?40,u00, with on outlay of 515,000 or $2J,?U0, will
make a crop of $CC',000 or $80,000 per annum. Capi?
talists, every body knows, are very cautious; but
when thc results ore so patent as this year, it is no
wonder that Western mon are going aloo'g the river
examining and selecting plantations for permanent
Based upon this advance in real estate and the
general peace and prosperity of the entire South, it
is not surprising t nat Northern capitalists should be
large investor* in Southern bonds, and this aeco nts
for the advance In Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana
bond?. There is no reason why these Fix percent,
securities, which now sell at from 87j?a80 per cent,
should not soon approach the prices of United
States euri ency bonds, and all Northern States bonds,
which sell at from lC0ai02, which they inevitably
will do under tho present prosaerou- slate of the
country. Yesterday the market for Southern State
securities was steady, with less doing. A good in?

GENTLEMEN-In an-wer to your inquiries in re fer?
ence to cy experience with Pacific Guano, I rcgi ot
that I am unaole to s:ate facts based ou carefully
made experiments. In 1837 I used Lut two bogs Pa?
cific-one to corn, the oth r to cotton. It was urcd
by the side of No. 1 Peruvian-the sama money
value per acre-applied at tao sume time and in tue
same woy as the Peruvian. The young colton r-rew
off earlier whore the Pacific was used, and reached
an earlier maturity. 1 think the rotative yield was
about the same on both corn and cotton. The past
year I used (ll) ele vn tons Pacific Guano again by
thc side of No. 1 Peruvian. I ii tended to note care?
fully the relative yield, but (be experiment was lost
on account of my absence from hoiuo at the time of
gathering. I propose using both tho Pacific and
Peruvian next year, with the view of determining
which ray? best The Pacific gives young plants an
earlier start which I think will ma'. o it a valuable
manure for cottys. I applied both Pacific aud IfxUr
vian to my turnip crop; the crop is nearly a failure,
aud worst where the Pacific was used-both were
used at the rate cf two bags per acre. I have never
applied the Pacific to the potatoes, wheat or oats.
I am, very respectfully.

Mr. J. S. Gibbes then offered thc following pream?
ble and resolutions :
Our Board has assembled under circumstances of |
unusual solemnity. Scarce a day had passed Binoe
our first meeting under a new election, when we
were startled and saddened by the announcement
that our President, D. L. MCKAY, was numbered
with thc dead.
On Tuesday he presided over our deliberations.
The noxt dar he passed trom time to eternity.
Death has made his wesene* almo-t visible to us.
With hearts overwhblmed br the suddenness of
this calamity, we moot to pay the lost tribute of res?
pect and affection to his m om cry.
Mr. MCKAY h :d firm'y established his reputation
as an ab'o financier aad an experienced banker be.
fore he toik charge of this institution. Haviust de?
veloped hts rare talents in extending the business
and insiataiaing thc credit ol'the Bank of George,
town, and afterward ia restoring, securing and
strengthening the prosperity of the People's Bank,
he deservedly occupied a place in the first rank of |
our Southern financiers. When tho war ended, and
the da rn of peace found us prostrate and apparently
ruined, he aided lo obtaining thc first banking I ?
tal fer Chariestou, and was am.m : the earliest pro?
moters and founders of this National Bauk.
His untirias enorgy-his eminent ability-his on
Iargcd experience-his firm yet courteous discharge
of the delicate duties of his position-bis enlightened
interest in the welfare ot the community, and his de.
votion to the iuterests of the bank, have been of in?
calculable service to our city and this institution. Hia
place cannot be readily supplied or easily tilled.
We who were h's associates, and who enjoyed such
full opportunity of seeing how efficiently he met and
how ably he discharged the duties devolving upon
him, desire to make some enduring record of our
estimate of him as a man of business- of our respect
and esteem for his character, and of our regard tor
him os our friend; be it, lhere'ore,
Resolved, That tho Board of Directors of the Peo?
ples' National Bank noam in sorrow the death of

this Bank has sustained a great loss; that as a Board
wc beor testimony to his untiling zeal and devotion
to the interest of this Bank; exhibiting, in every day
life, those steriing vir mos and ind:sputable financial
abilities, combined wi h kindness and benevolence,
which eminently qualified him to promote the inter?
ests confided to his rare, while be secured tho es?
teem and affection of all who valued the JO inestima?
Resolved, That this Board tender th.-ir sympathy
and condolence to the family of the deceased under J

*2-'ALITILE BILIOUS."-HOW OFTEN
this is thc ro'ponso to the inquiry after a friend's
health: a? if io be bilious was a trifling matter, hard?
ly worth (nicking about lint let it bc remembered
that, as "tall oaks from little acorns grow," eo
formidable diseases ariss frora b;ing " a little
Severe bilious at'jcks are moro common in spring,
bummer and autumn thu iu winter, but tho seri?
ous disorders of the liver which so often occ ur at
those season.', might ho traced, in hundreds of in?
stances, to winter indulgences and their neglected
consequences. More highly seasoned food is eaton,
more flory drinVs Imbibed, in cold than ia warm
weather, and thus tho biliousness u produced which,
under a warmer temperature, culminates in remit?
tent and intermittent fevers.
The very best medicine for persons who ore
either a LITTLE or a OOOD DEAL bilious, is H03TET
TER'd STOMACH BITTERS. No blue pill or calo?
mel U required m such cases. Those powerful
mineral medicines cut two ways, like a double
edged sword. They act, it is truo, upon tho liver,
but react most deleteriously o a other parts of the
system. They "stick" there, and cannot be got rid
of. The Litters ccaluiu vegetable agents of an anti
bilious tendency, that prod CM a specific and most
genial effect upon the biliary organ, without entail?
ing any evil cons?quences whatever. They are
altogether wholesome, and act favorably and simul?
taneously upon tho stomach, the h vcr, the bowels,
the nerve rs system, and tho brain.
