Generally observed-tilting ski
water-falls and other people's b
Tb. Wild L?nd. ot ttl* ScAtth.
In some of the Southern States,
especially in Arkansas, Louisiana and
Florida, there are large tract? of wild
land inviting settlement, and great
inducements are held out to Northern
people to go aud take possession of
them. The soil is so rich as to re?
quire no mannie, the timber is so
valuable that it will pay for the clear?
ing, and if one will engage in the
growing of fruit and vegetables for
Northern cities, he will get rich.
There is some truth in this, but men
with small means should be upon
their guard. To engage profitably
in the lumber business requires capi?
tal and hard work. More money has
been sunk in saw-mills than has been
made in them; and unless one is on
the banks of a river, where the sale
of cord-wood is certain, it will cost
not' less than $20 an acre to clear
land. There is no other business so
little profitable as that of preparing
the trees of the forest for sale, whe?
ther it be in the shape of lumber,
cord-wood or staves. The reason is
that coarse, hard-working and illite?
rate men, who can do nothing else,
competo with- each other, and in fur?
nishing large supplies, they keep
down the price of labor and the price
of their productions.
One who purposes raising fruit and
vegetables should consider first that,
to be successful, a good knowledge of
the business aud considerable capital
are required. Take the tomato crop,
for instance. No matter how far
South, on shipping waters, one may
go, somebody will be found already |
there, with extensive hot-beds ana
sashes, for the production of early
plants. However short the wiuter
may be, there is an attempt to make
it shorter. It is a great mistake to
suppose that in going South you will
get the start of somebody else. An
energetic fruit-grower will bo likely
to do well with nn orange plantation,
but it is indispensable that he knows
what fruit-growing is, and he must
not be afraid of work. Still, there
will bo no great success without capi?
tal and good management, either
taken thither or acquired on the
ground, and with them one will suc?
ceed in New York or in Minnesota.
But it is well to cousider tho fact that
in all Northern seaboard cities ono is
urged to buy oranges at from fifteen
to twenty ceuts a dozen, while apples
are sold ou the stand at fifty ceuts a
dozen. It. is doubtful whether apples
will not bring as much in the orchard
in November as oranges will in their
orchards in March. There is one
thing, regarding the South, which is
scarcely understood; that is, it is an
undeveloped country. The timo is
coming when new and valued pro?
ducts are to be introduced, and, per?
haps, in comparison, cotton will be
insignificant. But to secure this re?
sult, not only men of large minds will
be required, but Government patron?
age, widely administered, is indispen?
There is good reason to suppose
that many of the statements about
the semi-tropical South are made by
land speculators. For a Northern
mau to go thither aud pay from $5 to
?10 for wild land, except in some
choice localities, can end iu nothing
but disaster. Tho truth is, there are
thousands of acres that can be bought
at ^1.25 un acre. The only way to
settle such regions is in colonies, and
tho cost of land should not exceed 82
au acre. If large lauded proprietors
had not so much confidence iu tho
effect of thoir statements, they would
be wise in giving a part of their land
free to actual settlers; that is, pro?
vided they were able to pay for it.
Each member of the colony should
go with means to carry on work and
to support his family for two years,
at least. At the best, there will bo
privations and disappointments, and
many things must be learned which
neither they nor the people of tho
country know. But let no ono ex?
pect that riches will come suddenly.
Prosperity and even the common
comforts of life result only from time
and patient industry. Still, by their
help, they will come.

THE SEVEN-THIBTIES.-There aro
yet $20,000,000 of the first series of
the seven-thirty notes, dated July
15, 1801, to be received by the Trea?
sury Department. . There were ori?
ginally $380,000,000 of these notes,
but on the 15th of the present month,
when the time for redemption or con?
version into five-twenties expired,
only $40,000,000 were out.
Secretary McCulloch extended tho
time for their redemption to Sep?
tember 15, as has- already been
stated. On Saturday, $20,000,000 of
these notes were received by tho
Treasury Department, $5,000,000 of
which came from Boston bankers.
Most of this amount would have been
received the day before, if it had not
been for the storm. It is probable
that tho other $20,000,000 will bo
either redeemed or converted long
before the time given by Secretary
McCulloch expires.-Ballimore Sun.

the bird's crops, and caused their
death. This was not credited at first,

shown the insects alive in the rup?

dead birds' throats.
