CAMDEN, S. C., March 25.
A day of constant rain confines me at home,
and enables me, by relieving me from other
engagements, to extend to you this informa?
tion "on the state of the country."
In these latter days a planter has to be very
energetic and successful to close the year's
business with the expiring year.
To have harvested all crops, to have well
gotten in all small grain, to nave repaired
buddings, to bave had rails split for repairing
fences ia bad weather, yet to have come and
to have gotten through Xmas by the new year,
ls an achievement which Ju stifles a planter In
palting himself on the back and exclaiming,
"Weil done," and "Ho for next year;" but the
laborers swarm at this season, and under the
timinnabulary echoes of Lincoln's proclama?
tion, it takes them long to eettle again; thus,
January, one of the most Important months of
the agricultural year, Is lost; February ls on
hasd before the laboro! the farm is organized,
and then bad weather sets In, hindering pre?
paration. Thus, year after year, the premises
Inevitably leading to the conclusion of a poor
crop are Axed before the year's work ls com?
I have observed and experienced but one
remedy for this, L e., "the wages system."
Under tbe "share system" the loss in wasted
time is too remote to Impress itself forcibly on
the minds of the negroes, while they can very
fully appreciate the loss of every day or week
for which the cash would be paid.
The importance of an early start was never
more forcibly illustrated (han it bas been this
season, and, unfortunately, very few planters
got that start. January was a most propitious
month for the work of the plough, except
that the freezes were so constant and pro?
longed that the ploughs could nof be run In
the early morning: but those hours could be
?employed In repairs to fences, ?c., and the.
later hours of the day sufficed to do much of
the ploughing so important .to be done in that
month. Where lt was not tWn done most of
it remains undone, for February and March
have been unprecedentedly wet and cold. We
have had eleven snows this winter, the heavi?
est of which fell on Friday last, 23d instant,
and to-day a heavy, cold winter rain has been
falling all day, and the first of April will be
upon us before the land ls again ready for the
Planters who prepared their land in Janu?
ary, planted their corn crops last week. A
week more of cold weather after this snow
and rain will cause a loss of that labor, and
will crowd the corn and cotton crops upon
each other all the season, to the injury of.
both-a result already fixed as to those who
have not planted.
A backward spring necessarily reduces the
-extent of the crop, lt ls true that propitious
seasons for the future, good preparations and
afterculture would work compensation; but
now much of these or either of them can be
There ls prevalent a very exaggerated idea
as to the Increase of this cotton crop by the
Wit of commercial fertilizers. I am an earnest
advocate for their use, and use them very
freely-so lt ls not as to the profit I raise a
.queBilon, but as to the aggregate result on the
crop. I think, under Judicious management,
a ton of good phosphate will add two bales to
'the crop: but lam confident, as used, the ad?
dition will not exceed one and a hall bales to
Tou can. I doubt not, obtain reliable Informa?
tion as to the quantity of guano and superphos?
phate to be used in the coming cotton crop. A
publication of such Information would be val?
uable, and, In my opinion, would demonstrate
that the addition to the cotton crop per the
use of ^commercial fertilizers" ls such as
might be counterbalanced by a week's delay
In) the opening spring, a week's advance of
fro.r. in the fall, stormy weather, or drought in
summer or autumn.
It is a subject of great satisfaction to those
of us who love the old city, to observe from
your weekly commercial reports that, while
the supply of colton bas fallen off so heavily in
-all other cotton port?,dear old Charleston holds
her own. Whether this be owing to the In?
creased production of the region tributary to
-Charleston, or an enlargement ol the area of
that reston, we do not know, but find sub?
jects for gratulation In either. HOBKIRK.

ORANGEBURG, S. C., March 28.
The cheering Influence of sucha day as this,
. after weeks and months of weather unparallel?
ed tor rain, ice, snow and Siberian contribu?
tions generally, gives one a desire to say how
much we enjoy the advent of bright, joyous
spring. Already the woods are ringing with
the glee of children searching for the jessa?
mine, and the farmers are pressing to put
In tbe seed. Many are yet prevented from
planting on account of the sobbed stale of the
soil, and the task of replanting will fall to the
lot of some who were too early. The use of
commercial fertilizers is largely increased;
the demand has exceeded, by a heavy per?
centage, that of any previous year. A better
knowledge of application and the reduced
price of these manures have Induced this
It ls a mistalte to suppose that cotton will be
planted to the exclusion of provisions. The
farmers of this section generally have an eye
to a good granary. Some changes ot late have
indicated progress in our town. The erection ol
new places of business, the spirit of improve?
ment lnlused by the "Agricultural Society,"
the competition of two lines of telegraph, the
weekly Issue of the -'Times,'' an ably edited
and true anti Radical paper, and the more
convenient location of the Express office, are
all appreciated. The "Elliott Hook and Lad?
der Company" are preparing to erect a fine
truck house, and will sot apart, the upper por?
tion for a public hall, a want much felt. The
merchants of Charleston will find the "Times"
to be the proper medium for advertising. X..
THE PLANTERS BEHINDHAND
A Host Unfavorable Season-The Pros?

all Guess Work.
[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT. J
CLINTON, LAUBENS, S. C.
Like your correspondent, Mr. James, I have
been surprised at your weather reports, at the
head of your cotton market reports; such
weather as be describes, or worse, has prevail
ed in this county, and no doubt all over the
np country, and perhaps throughout the cot?
ton region. We have had the coldest winter
and the most unfavorable to tarm business.
think we have ever experienced. Snows,
sleets, rains and frozen ground have been the
-rule, working weather tbe exception. Of
course we are lar behind with our ploughs.
But little corn is planted yet, (March 27th)
and much stubble land ls yet to break. Wheat
-not as much sown SB usual-is winter?
killed, and looks poor. Oats-perhaps as
much as usual-the early sown winter killed;
the moBt ol lt put In late. Whether we can
afford to lessen our corn crop, each one will
Judge for himself. Perhaps the cotton crop
area will be Increased, although this is not
certain, and certainly, under the circum?
stances, ought not to be. Owing to tbe very
had roads, there will not be BO large an
amount of fertilizers used, as with better
roads there would be. Whether a large cot
ion crop, or in fact any other crop, 1B to be
raised, ls among the uncertainties of the
future. All past experience proves this.
Speculations on the next crop are sheer non?
sense. J. H. D.
THE FLOODS IN GEORGETOWN.
[From the Times.]
Floods of rain have lallen since our last is
fiue. The streams are fail, the rivers are lull,
the rice fields are lull, and wo:k ls delayed,
and planting must necessarily be postponed.
Ail work is a month behind -hand, and the
prospects of the planters look by no means
propitious. But let them not be discouraged.
It may stc~ raining some of these days. On
Monday night we had thunder, lightning and

We make this departure from the ordinary
methods of party action from a deep convic?

is under the control of those who will use it
chiefly for personal purposes and obstruct a
a free expression of opinion upon Important
matters which the gentlemen whom you re?
present have laid before the people of the
United States. We believe the time has come
when political offences of the past should be
pardoned; that all citizens should be protected
Tn the enjoyment of the rights guaranteed, to
them by the constitution; that Federal taxation
should be Imposed for revenue, and so adjust?
ed as to make the burden upon the Industry ot
the country as light as possible; that reform
lu the civil service should be made, which
will relieve political action from the influ?
ence of official patronage; that the right of
local self-government as the foundation ol
American freedom should be reasserted, and
encroachments of Federal power checked.
We believe that at this time a special duty
rests upon the people to do away with corrup?
tion In office. The exposures recently made
In this State have brought to light evils not
confined to one party, nor to a Bingle locality,
and disclose dangers, more P-rmidable than
any which the Republic ha? encountered.

TRANSPORTATION FOR FARM TRUCK.-A meet?
ing of the executive committee of the Agricul?
tural Society of South Carolina was held on
Saturday evening at the Board of Trade rooms,
called for the purpose of taking into consider?
ation the means of transportation which the
farmers in the vicinity of the city would have
for their farm truck during the present season.
Mr. Alexander, the agent for the American
transplanter, exhibited the method on which
the invention worked, and made several ex?
periments with the machine to the entire sat?
isfaction of all present.
The condition and prospects of the crops
were discussed at length, especially with a
view to obtain a reliable way ol transportation
to the North by steamships and railroads for
the larm produce lor thia season, and Mr. H.
W. Kinsman, Dr. A. B. Rose, Dr. H. B. Hol?
beck and Mr. James Price were appointed a
committee to confer with the various steam?
ship and railroad lines as to the facilities and
rates of transportation which they would
severally be able to offer.
-This is one ot the most Important and grow?
ing Industries winch exists In and near
Charleston. In the past year it has doubled
the value of farm land near the city, and the
rates of profit have attracted a large amount
of capital to this investment. It also affords
an unfailing source of freight to the railroads
and steamship lines when all other traffic ls
dull, and it is hoped that the matter wllj re?
ceive that consideration and encouragement
which Its Importance to the true interests of
the city deserves.

Charleston on Saturday noon. The opinions
of Messrs. Porter ? Conner, and Mr. C. G.

was unanimous that, r brought to a test in the

sustained. Some dlvtrslty ol opinion existed
as to the most appropriate and feasible method
of testing the questioi, and a full and free dis?

resolution, on the molon of Mr. Barker, that
a committee of three be appointed to confer
with Messrs. Porter atd Memmlnger and re?
quest them to arraogt for the testing of the
license law before th? courts at the earliest

M ULE A BULLER T.
A Lively Sketchby John Phoenix.
Out In a certain Western fort, sometime ago,
the major conceived the idea that artillery
might be used effectively In fighting with the
the Indians by dispensing with gun-carriages
and fastening the canoon upon backs of mules.
So he explained his views to the commandant,
and it was determined to try the experiment.
A howitzer was selected and strapped upon
an ambulance mule, with ihe muzzle pointed
toward the tail. When they had secured the
iron, and loaded it with ball-cartridge, they
ed that calm and Bteadlast mule out on the
bluff and set up a target In the middle or the
river to practice at. The rear of the mule was
turned toward the target, and be was backed
gently up to the edge of the bluff. The offi?
cers stood around in a sem-lclrcle, while the
major went up and Inserted a time-fuse in the
touch-hole ol the howitzer. When the fuse
was ready, the major lit lt and retired. In a
minute or two the hitherto unruffled mule
heard the fizzing back tbere OD his neck, and
lt made him uneasy. He reached his head
around to ascertain what was going on, and,
as be did so, his body turned and the howitzer
began to sweep around the horizon. The
mule at lau became excited, and bis curiosity
grew more ann tnore intense, and in a second
or two he was standlog with his four legs in a
bunch, making six re; slutlons a minute, and
the howitzer, understHDQ, threatening sudden
death to every man within t^lt a mile. The
commandant was observed to cttmb suddenly
up a tree. The lieutenants were seea sliding
over the bluff into the river, as if they didn't
cate at all about the high price of uniforms;
the adjutant made good time toward the fort;
the sergeant began to throw up breastworks
with his bayonet, and the major rolled over
the grouud and groaned. In two or three
minutes there was a puff of smoke, a dull thud,
aud the mule-oh! where was he ? A solitary
jackass might have been seen turning succ?s
I sive back-somersaults over the bluff; only tc
[ rest at anchor, finally, with his howitzer at the
bottom of the river, while the ball went o fl
toward the fort, hit the chimney in the major's
quarters, rattled the adobe bricks down lote
the parlor, and frightened the major's wife lu?
to convulsions. ? They do not allude to lt now,
and no report of ihe results of the experiment
was ever sent to the War Department.
