was reduced to 8,000 starving men, bas sur ?

' Ol' this fact, there cae be little question. Thc
two Generals treated each other with courtesy,
and the. honors of war Ware awarded to eur

A truce has been agreed upon between .Gens.
Johnston and Sherman. -This truce is to conti?
nue until the adjustment of terms between the '
representatives of the two?confederaci es. But, j
in the event of'either party being dissatisfied,
then a notico of forty-eight hours is required ?
before the'disruption of the terms of trace.

Heaven forbid thal, at this period, we shall be'
given over to the miserable ereatnrea-WbO have
goalong and so ruinously legislated for us. The
great question now is to whom baa been .on

jAappen: spen a communication ?n a Georgia
newspaper, in whieh a correspondent, who apr
pears to be hst /ait, describee the method of
cultivation of tho poppy and Ibo preparation
^of" tho ephim. He recommend? the wAttepoppy-j
f"n preference to. any other; but every hind
will J nstrer, according to hie plan. -Tbs manner j
of WlirVM?tt ? ?? follows:
Have good lead, wall broten, and.sow in 1
.acarce, von may.,drop fpur or five io a hill,
abouti* t-we>ive or fourteen "inches apart, then
thin out aa above. When it begin'Tte bloom I
[and antil it matures, if the weather ft dry, it
will be necessary to water ic often, as this
makes the' pods mora juicy. If your land is
food andi? well prepared by deep plowing or
ceing. your work is do??e, with a little hoeinc
and pulling ont the breeds. I saw, in 1SS4,
when in Tennessee, great" quautities of opium
made Ret? thc poppy, that waa cultivated by
, tht*ladies-and children for ornament
The way te gather opium is aa follows: Tb?
po?]* should bc a little more than. h?lf. rip?, at
which time you are to take a knife raade for
the nui-pose, with three short blades, the mid?
dle b lace the shortest, se that it may not"go
deeper than the olhcrs.Jor you will recollect
the. boll is rourflifh. With thia knife yon make
lents Uugthwayson tke pods, not quite through
I the hull, abost sunset; during the night the
milky joice wili exude from the hulls through
the outs'and adhere to the sides of the incisions,
la the morning, bxfora the aim shines, it must ba I
collected ip a ptate or vessel, with'an iron seoopf
or thin ctoolred'serapcr, made so as ta fit the
shape of the-pods. When tims collected^ yon
ar- to w?Tk it in tiie vessel, exposed.to thean*,
vjAh a wooden paddle, till the juice is euffi
! cTeitly tlm-k?ited. This is opium. Then msk?
it into.cakes with the bauds aud wrap it up ID
the leaves of the poppy; and if you have no
suitable bottles or jars to keep it ia, put it, ju
thia leather ba^s, and you cau^'kee^ it as long
as you please.
