* OfcinrrvATioN OP THE PINDEB OB
PKANTJT.-Tho peanut baa been very
sucoessfu?3? cultivated in all the
Southern States,'. and has' found', a
ready market at remunerative prices.
A co-temporary furnishes" the follow?
ing directions for growing them :
Seleot a rich sandy loam, such a
?pot as would bi? -suitable for the
sweet potato. Break it up early in
the spring, cross-plow, harrow, and
pulverizo it thoroughly. Check ii
off with a bull tongue, three feel
apart. This preparation must bc
made by the middle of April, al
which time the planting must bc
commenced, if the frost has entirely
disappeared. Put four to six peas ir
each check, covering lightly with i
hoe or wooden harrow. Or the pet
may be planted iu drills, eighteer
inches apart, the rows the same
width as when plauted in checks
After the pea is up high euough tc
plow* run the bar of the plow ai
close as possible to the plant, plow
ing out the middle as you would oom
After the lapse of ten or twelve days
plow the second time. Then leve
the surface around the plant, billin;
just enough to keep from settlini
upon the growing stalk. The worl
of cultivating the peauut will thei
be mainly over, unless ruin shouh
set in. Theu perhaps it will be ue
cessary to plow again, iu order t<
to keep down tho grass aud weeds
' After the plants have bloomed am
the fertile blooms commence ourvinj
downward, it will bo necessary
about once a week, to cover the vine
sufficiently to prevent their growtl
and encourage the pea, leaving th
ends of the vines eicposed. Thi
must ba done with a hoe or shovel
the dirt being thrown upon the vine
lightly, at the samo time cutting an
soraping away the weeds and grast
The naturo of the peanut is not t
produce many nuts just where th
roots form, but along the point
where the blooms appear. The vine
mako excellent hay, are easily cured
and all kinds of stock will eat thei
readily. They should be plowed c
dug up just before frost. Whil
digging, shako the roots and tur
* over to the sun aud lot them remai
for a day or two to cure. Then hat
them to a barn or some buildin
where they can be kept dry, an
. separate the peas from the vine
The peas should then be washed au
thoroughly dried, when they Tviil i
ready xor market.
In building a chimney, put a qua
tity of salt into the mortar wii
which the intercourses of briok a
to be laid. Tho effect will be th
there will never bo any acoumulatic
of soot in that chimney. The pi
losophy is thus stated : The salt
the portion of mortar which is e
posed absorbs moisture from the i
mosphere every damp day. Tho so
thus bocomiug damp falls down
the fireplace. This appears to be i
English discovery. It is nsed wi
success in Canada.
REV. DR. PLUMMER.-This venera?
ble r.nd beloved divine delivered a
most eloquent and powerful sermon
before tue Young Men's Christian
Association, Inst Sunday evening, in
tbe Second Presbyterian CUuroh.
His text was from the 2d Epistle of
Peter, first chapter and sixteenth
verse: "For we have not followed
cunningly devised fables." Notwith?
standing the inclemency of the wea?
ther, qnite a large audience was in
attendance-as, indeed, there gene?
rally is whenever publio services are
held under the auspices of this asso?
ciation-and for nearly an hour and a
half the venerable minister held them
completely enchained by the power
of his argument and the earnestness
of his manner. As he stood in front
of the audience, (for, at the dose of
the preparatory servioe, before com?
mencing his sermon, he came down
from the pulpit,) with his silver
white hair and long, flowing beard,
reaching nearly td his waist, also of
silver-whiteness, he seemed like one
of the old prophets returned to the
earth, to prove.by his appearance, as
woll as by his arguments, that he had
not spent a life-time in following
"cunningly devised fables," but the
Gospel he preached and believed
was, indeed, given "by inspiration of
We are pleased to learn that the
Doctor has promised to return to the
city later in the season, and preach a
series of sermons before the Young
Men's.?Christian Association, when
our citizens may have another oppor?
tunity of hearing him.
MURDER IN WAI/TERBORO.-Mr.
Bradford, of Walterboro, merchant,
was murdered at his store in that
village, on Thursday evening last,
under the following circumstances:
He was sitting in tbe back part of
the store listening to his wife read?
ing, when two negro soldiers entered
and asked for segara. He went to
serve them, and as he turned from
them toward the shelf on which the
segara were, one of them Kt ruck him
I on the head with n club. His wife
j hearing the fall, called out to him to
I know what had fallen, and then hear?
ing him moan, BIIO rushed to the spot
and saw the negro soldiers esoupiug
througbvthe door. A black boy com?
ing up at the timo met the two ne?
groes, and gave the same description
of them as Mrs. Bradford, but
neither he nor she know them further
than that they were negro soldiers.
Drs. George Rivors and Mallory
Rivers were called in to the assistance
of the wounded man, but np to Fri?
day, at ll A- M., he remained insen?
sible, and the physicians entertained
no hope of his recovery.
THE MILLS HOUSE STABLES.-Some
time ago we called attention to these
stables, and the perfectness of their
equipments, equine and mechanical,
then under the direotion and proprie?
torship of Messrs. Deighan & Baker.
Recently Mr. Deighan bas retired
from tho firm, and now, with most
admirable assistants, the business is
conducted by the former partner,
Mr. Wm. *A. Baker. The Mills
House stablos and vehioles have al?
ways been recognized in Charleston
as of the very first class, and nader
the individual management of Mr.
Baker, we are confident that their
former reputation will be sustained.

The President of the jaine Kidgo
Railroad-Col. J. W. Harrisoa-has
published circulars, in which ho ex?
plains the position of that important
enterprise, and appeals to land-hold?
ers along tba line of the road to
subsoribe land in exchange for capi?
tal stook. This, it is hoped, will
enable the direotors to use the lands
as the basis of a mortgage, for the
purpose of raising money to com?

THE MISERABLES OF THIS

good digestion there can neither be bodily
comfort nor mental enjoyment/
Betwoen the. stomach and ; the brain
there is a olose and wonderful alliance.
If the one is disordered the other is
gloomy, dejected, incapable of effort, and
indifferent to all that makes life agreeable
to the healthy.
Is this a condition that any rational ha?
man being is wining to endure, when the
means of certain, immediate and perma?
nent relief can be obtained everywhere?
The Dyspeptio has his fate ia his own
hands. If he chooses to banish forever
the disorder that racks his body and dis?
turbs the mind with nameless horrors, he
has only to step to the nearest drug store
and procuro a supply of
