There Appears to be a little trouble in

Our train U running through the great
sugar plantations of Louisiana, thousands
of acres In extent, representing a vast
amount nf wealth. Our planter Iriend 'n
,Ne Orleans owns three thousand acres
here, from which he sold $300,000 worth
of sugar last year. You have heard ol
people raising cane, well this is where
they raise it. One acre produces from SO
to 30 tons each season, and has heensoown
to produce 40 tons nf Ihe grceu csne. A
large amount of capital is required to
carry on this Industry successlully. The
an Is planted every three yours. They
are nearly through cutting the lost year's
crop, but it sprouts early and grows fast
md ihey will commence to cut and gather
igain In a lew weeks.
We are passing large rice fields and the
stacks ot rice look like Northern oaU,
These fields are flooded with water several
times while the rice Is growing; this la
alwn necessary to procure a crop. It
yields from 30 to 75 bushels per acre worth
from $45 to $115.
OaU do well on the highlands and are
six inches high now. Farmers are busy
plowing all through the (South where the
ground is not too wet We saw one farmer
plowing with eight horses, turning six
fur roughs at a lime. He sut nn a spring
seat cleaning his finger nails and whist
ling a lively tune.
There is t fuimer plowing with a yoke
-f oxen. He reminds me of an old fellow
that used lo come Into town every Satur
day and get drunk. The boys out of pity,
used to throw him Into the wigon and
start the oxen home. Just before be got
home they had logo down a long hill, and
the oxen when Ihey got to the brow of It
commenced to run. Now and then the
wagon itsuck a stone and gave the fellow
an awl'ul Jolt and that would wake him

glance at the cattle he would full help

A Word From Virginia.
Vienna, Va., Feu'y 8, 1880.
Editor of ExTEsraiss:
In the two pleasant visits I have maJe
to Lorain couov 1 learned of many that
contemplated Bi eking a home iu theSouili,
and us I have neither ax to urind or lauds
to sell I vi:e this with the hope thai it
may aid someone at leHHt in the select InB
of a location lor a home and perhaps lo
prevent some mlsink' s so many are lluhle
to make in reioovinK to a new aud untriel
country. The tideol immigration flowing
Southward since the war, and especially
to Virginia, has bin the oie attraction, the
mild ami even temperature ot its climu e
Situated betwecu the extreme parallels o
heat aud cold it is fieelrom the storms
aud iilizzards of the North us well hs ti e
levers aud burning heatnt Ih iex reuie

uenllv rolling or uudulatiue in ll surface
between Ihe oceau and the mountains long
level valleys ile s reiclu d O'lt between the
two ranges of mountains ami west of thi in
to the Ouio Itivi r the count-y is nion
rough and broken than the eastern part oi
the Stute. From almost every hillside a d
ravine a never-failing spring runs out to
form the sou ice ol innumerable, little rtv
erlets that wheu JolneO together make
historic Potomac or some one ol the hun
dred rivers flowing oreanwsrd. If the
soil was ever nb rich In the elements of
plant fo d as that of Ohio whou diet
mined b) the plow then years of slave
farming aud the evaporation and drainage
of 0su winters has made It a necessity to
use some klndif acummerrlal fertilizer
in restoring the land to a paying produc
tiveness, There is lor all practical pui
poses but tw o kinds or characters of our
soil and no chemical analysis is needed iu
determine its nature, for the eye can see
at a glance in the color and composition
Us needs or capabilities. If Ihe Boil be
dark in color, apparently free irora saud
and gravel, it will be easy tilled, i usy im
proved, and as lasting in production ss
any Ohio farm lands. The most sterile or
barren land Is ol a lighter shade or color,
mostly of coarse sand and gravel, with a
modicum of yellowish clay, snd while it
is worthier and never can be made pro
ductive for agricultural purposes it is par-
exceleuce for the trult culturlst, or it
colors and matures his Iruit in greater
beauty and perfection than can ever be
grown on the dark red loam. Because ol
cheap lands many a man ha bought and
set'led Iu an Isolated location away from
society or lis sclnails and churches, and In
a few year went back to the place of his
coming. I was a Union sailor In the war
and some of my beat friend and kindest
ueigliliors are ex conlrderate snldieis, yet
for all that I make the assertion without
any fear of a successful contradiction that
Southern bitterness towards the North and
its people was not surrendered at Appo
mstox, and no Northern family can ever
feel that they are welcomed among them,
and no borne life can ever be made pleas
ant unless In colonies of tbeirown people.
It might be sai.l without exception that
where there Is a passable road a new
church or a school house it Is the handi
work of our Northern settlers, and where
one had the means to pay for lands and
to improve them located among the peo
ple of his own birth or creed they are
happy and contented. No climate or sec
tion whs ever blessed, with health moie
than ours. Generous treatment ot the
laud brings generous return and many a
happy home now stand where once wo
