Southern Factories.
, la an article on this subject, tbe New Or
leans JPtcayun shows that th Southern States
have accomplished far more than they receive
credit for, in the way of manufacturing their
own cotton and woolen goods, whil a steady
progress is making In this direotlon. It says:
In Sonth Carolina, as far baok as 1850, thrt
wr eighteen cotton faotorlos, whloh were
worked with profit.
. In Georgia, thirty-five cotton ftoterlet then
were in full operation, with a capital of $1,738,
156, producing seven million two hnndrsd and
sixty-nine thousand two hundred and ninety
two yards of shtlags, and four millions one
hundred and ninety-eight thousand three hun
dred and fifty-one pound of yarn. Three
woolen factories were also In full tide of sue
oessful experiment, manufacturing three hun
dred and forty thousand six hundred and sixty
yards of oloth. '
In Alabama were found thirteen cotton fac
tories, with a capital of $681,900, and three
woolen factories, whloh returned hadsome an
nual profits'. '
In Louisiana a beginning had been male,
two eotten factories having oommnced loca
tions. Kentucky and Tennessee had embarked
more largely in this species of industry, th
former containing eight cotton and twenty
seven woolen factories, the latter thirty-three
cotton and four woolen factories.
These faots, true in 1850, do not pressnt the
condition of Southern manufacturing nter
pilse in 1859. We have made a progress in
this department of Industry really oreditable,
and the Influence of the suocess of suoh under
takings upon pnbllo sentiment will undoubtedly
render cur advance in manufacturing for our
home wants a noticeable point of tho nut
census. . ' '
The Career of a Villain.
As our readers will remember, Joseph laoy
was a short time slno convicted of setting fire
te the town of Osbkosb, Wis., on the 10th of
"day last, by which nearly the whole town was
destroyed, at a loss of about $500,000, and he
was sentenced to fourteen years' confinement
in the State Prison. Laoy is about thirty-eight
years of age, and was born in Monroe County,
New York.' He commenced his career of crime
by a robbery at Rochester, New York, on the
tow-path of the canal; and was oonvidl ana
sentenced to two years' imprisonment in ths
Penitentiary, at Auburn. At the expiration
of his sentence, he removed to Wisconsin. At
this time ho committed a robbery upon an old
man who was boarding a his house.. Last
spring be opened a house of ill-fame In Osh
kosh, Wis., whloh soon becamo so notorious
that the eitizens of that place requested him
several times to leave. He invaribly refused,
and finally carried his evil doings to suoh a
pitch, that they burned his house and drovs
him out of tbe place. He loft, swearing re
venge, and on tbe night of the 10th of May,
the town was fired and burned, as above stated.
Fruit in California.
From one of Horses Greeley's late California
letters, we dip the following:
Tbe Fig-tree grows in these valleys side by
side with the Apple; ripe figs are now gathered
daily from nearly all the old Mexioan gardens,
The Olive grows flnsly in Southern California,
and I believe the Orange and Lemon aa well.
But the Grape bid fair to become a staple
throughout the State. Almost every farmer
who feels sure of his foothold on tbe land he
oultivates either has bis vineyard already
planted, or is preparing to plant one, while
most of those who have planted are extending
rrom year to year, i have looked through
many of these vineyards, without flodlng on
that it not thrifty one that, if two years
plantsd, is not now loaded with fruit The
profusion and weight of the dusters is mar
velous to the fresh bholdr. I will not attempt
to give figures; but it it my deliberate judg
ment that grapes may be grown here asoheapiy
as wheat or eorn, pound for pound, and that
wine will ultimately be made here at a cost per
gallon not exoeodlng that of whisky in Illinois
or Ohio.
The Shirt Tree.
The aoeounts of travelers have made us well
acqualntsd with the "Bread Tree" and the
"Button Tree," but it remained for the inde
fatigable Humboldt to discover, in . tbe wild
of South America a tree whloh produce
ready-mad shirts. We copy his soount f
this tree: ' .;: ; '"'
We taw on the tlope of the Cerra Dulda,
says M. Humboldt, shirt trees fifty feet high.
The Indians out off cylindrical pieoes two feet
in diameter, from whioh tbey peel the red and
fibrous bark, without making any longitudinal
incision. . Th bark affords them a sort of gar
ment, whloh resembles saoks of a very ooarte
texture, and without a seam.
Tho upper opening servos for the head,
and two lateral holes are cut to admit the
arms. The natives wear these shirts of m tr
ims in the rainy season i they have the form
of the poneAoi and rstauo of cotton, which are
so common in a ew uronaaa, at y into ana in
Peru. At in these olunates the rioncs and
beneficenoe of nature are regarded as the
primary cause of the indolence of the inhabi
tants, the missionaries do not fail to say, in
showing the shirts of marima "In the for
ests of the Oroonoko garments are found
ready made en the trees.", ;

Thh Fbkxoh Floating Batt!Biss, Of the
five floating batteries destined to operate
against 'Pesohiera on the Lego dl Garda, one
was put together as an experiment on its re
turn to Toulon. ' They were of one hundred

where they were stopped by tho peace or Villa

A TcxiiiL Bkniatb tub Eholish Chamkbl.
With regard to the proposed tunnel beneath
tho English Channel, M. Ami Bono stated be
fore the Geological Sooiety, in London, at the
session of May l, tnat no tnougnt it nigniy
probable that tbe Channel had not been ex-
oavatad merely by water-action. ' He supposes
that it owed its origin to one of th lines of
dlstuibaoos whloh bad fissured that portion of
the earth's erust, and that, without doubt, the
fissure still existed to muoh greater depth that
tbe soundings, it hsing filled with compara
tively loose material, wnion wouia prove
aeilous obstacle to a submarine tunnel. ,
Boldbmko Bboki Lwm. M. Milne Ed
wards has been making some experiment in
feeding animals whose limbs had Men broken,
with phosphate of lime. Out of six rabbits
and ton dogs, whose legs he broke in tho same
wav. half were fed on food mixed with ground
bones, and their bones united mch mor
rapidly than those of the unphosphated ani
mals. He thinks ths use in human oases will
bo dtddsdly benefiolal. ' , . . . ,
An Editorial Palace.
T. W. Brown, editor of the Wisconsin CKUf,
gives the following graphlo deioription of his
homestead, in reply to an old fogy who oh-
noted to paying Mr. Brown for a series of
leoturot, beoanse he "was rich and lived in a
perfect palsoe." .
AU truth. Wo are one of th nabobs. Ilk
tho fellow who would hav four oblpmonks
when he killed the one he was after and three
more, to we shall have some land when wo
got it. Our palace is principally of pine
82x80, one story, and most sumptuously fun
Uhed. It Is neither plastered, wanerod nor
paioted inside euoh furnishing is too plebeian.

The fight was one of th most desperate char
acter, but tho Muridcs, placed between two
fifes, saw that resittancs or flsbt was eauallv
impossible. Out of four hundred men, who
formed the garrison of Gounlb, forty-seven
only remained alive. Sobamyl shut himself
up in ono of the habitations whioh were out
into the rook. The plateau was covered with
oorpses. We lost one hundred men. When
Earitinski arrived on the plateau, he stopped
the firing, and addressing Sohamvl. summoned
him to surrender.
Tbe Imsum, appearing at an annertura
wbioh had beon made in the rock, asked on
wnai nonunion ne was reci aired to vield.
Leave your retreat unconditionally." moiled
the Commander-in-Chief. He who had been
our bitterest enemy for so many years then
came forth. "Are yon Sohamvl?" asked the
Prinoe. "Yes," replied Imaum. "Then vour
me is spared, ana you win retain your wives
and property. But I shall send you to St
Petersburg to-morrow, and your fate must
finally depend on the will of th Emperor, my
august master." Sobamyl bent bis head
without uttering a word. "Tbe General then
said: "I waited a long time for you at Tlttis;
I hoped you would come of yourself and make
your submission, but you forced me to oome
here in search of you." Then turning to
Lieutenant-Colonel Grabbe, be said: "Proceed
forthwith to St. Petersburg, and report to the
Emperor wnat you nave seen. To-morrow I
will send a report and Sobamyl himself."
One of Men who Lectures the

re
lates the following joke at tho expense of an
editor of an agricultural paper: .', .. ,,
I wat in the eara going to tbe State Fair at
Freeport, some time ago, and unintentionally
overboard a conversation. Tho parties to tbe
conversation were a farmer rrom Lake County
and an agricultural correspondent. When
near Nevada, the member of the "staff" wat
in tho hlght of an animated explanation of
how "we" bad benefitted the farming interests
by having agents alwayt traveling reporting
the prospects of crops, . Just at that mo
ment a field of buokwheat in bloom attracted
attention. ..-,:. .,..
"What a fine field of white beans that Is,"
exclaimed the traveling editor.
"Beans!" ssid tbe farmer, "that is buok
wheat" ..
"Oh! what a beautiful white grain It has; I
must make a note of it, and write a letter
from Freeport about it. Buokwheat Ilk that
la not to be found at the Eastl The specimen
have been accustomed to tee produced a
very dark flour."
"Why of course the buokwheat will pro
duce a dark flour," rejoined tbe farmer; "what
you saw was not the jrratn tnat was tne
bloom I"
"Oh Ah!" said the editor, who quickly
dosed his "notes on buokwheat," and shortly
after went into th smoking oar, ,
CbtabiotibIstios of Pidaxtbt. A man who
has been brought pp among books and is able
to talk of nothing else, Is a very indifferent
companion, and what wa call a pedant ' But
we should enlarge the title, and give it to every
one who does not know how to think out of
bit profession and particular way of life. What
is a greater pedant than a mere man of town?
Bar him In tne playhouses a catalogue or tne
reigning beauties, and you strike him dumb
Tbe military pedant alwayt t.lks in a camp,

fighting battles from one end of the year to

The law pedant it perpetually putting eases,

convinced of the distance of a Place, or of tho
most trivial point In conversation, but by dint
of argument, ine state peaant u wrapped
up in newt and lost in politic. If you men
tion any of the sovereigns of Xuropo, he talks
vsry notably; but if you go but of the Oazett
you drop him. Iu short, a mere courtier, a

Insurrection Among the Slaves.
BALTIMORE, October 7.
The following dispatch hat jut been re-
oeired from Froderiok. It seems very Im
probable, and should be received with caution
.
"FREDERICK, MD., October 17.
"An Insurrection la reported to have taken
plaoe at Harper's Firry. Aa armed band ol
Abolitionists have full possession of tbe
United States Arsenal at Harper's Ferry. '

Into twice, and one of tbe railroad bands, s
negro, was killed while trying to get the train
through the town. '
"Tho mob arrested two men who cam in
with a load of wheat, took tbe wagon, loaded
It with rifles and sent It into Maryland. The)
are led by about two hundred and fifty whites,
with a gang of negroes, fighting.". .-

driving his family to church, has paid the
fine, and publishod a card, In which ho says
be was quite ignorant and bad been allowing
transgressions of the law, . though he had
often studied it carefully, and officially de
clines carrying the case any further, because
there may be suitors before tbe Supreme
Court in other cases and they ought not to be
embarrassed by having one of its judges pe
cuniarily interested. Judge Lowrie is one
of the three Judges who rendered an opinioi
adverse to the Excelsior Omnibus Company a

The Trade in Toads.
Nuno but Fronchmen, of oours'o, would think
of making a regular business of trading in
these brown-ooated gentlemen, and accordingly
we find the trade flourishing in Paris alone.
Toads for tome years havo boon' the Indis
pensable allies of tho French market gardeners,
cnltivating rioh and most fertile grounds.
Many of these men fill their, gardens with
them to get rid of a throng of insects injurious
to the vegetables they have raised by laborious
and scientific culture. Especially do toads
attack and demolish tbe slugs and snails which
in a single night sometimes utterly destroy
the comsseroial value of lettuce, carrots, as
paragus, and even early fruits. ' In having re
course to these singular auxiliaries, tho Frsnoh
gardenors imitate tboir English brethron.
A great portion of the vegetable supply of
London is derived from kitohen gardens in the
vloinity of that immense city, cultivated, it it
said, by thirty-five thoasand persons. These
gardens are a perfect marvel of laborious
oulture. You tee, eometimei," acres and
acres covered with - hand-gUasot. Riohly
manured and sedulously tended, some of these
garden spots are so managed as to yield five
crops annually. Not only Is there not a weed
among them, but the vegetable are examined
with lenses to detect mildew and fungi. Bo
sides toads, wbioh thoy pay six shillings a
dozen for, they make use of fowls to destroy
the aphides, rigging them with boots, whioh
prevent their scratching, and allow them only
the use of their bills. , , i ,
Tbe price of toads is lower in Paris than in
London; in the former city they are still sold,
notwithstanding' the demand, for about fifty
cents a dozen, and many are exported to Eng
land. The dealers In this strange commodity
keep them in tbe bottom of huge casks, into
whioh thoy are constantly plunging their bare
hands and arms, without showing the slightest
fear of the liquid scoretsd by the toads, whioh
science has sometimes deolared harmless, and
sometimes pronounoed vonomous. Busy little
fellows, these repulsive looking oreatures are,
and worthy of all possible encouragement and
patronage. . . ;. , i ' K vi"'
Widg-MAKiNO IB Texas. A letter to th
New Orleans Pkaymt, ' from . Washington
County, Texas, July 15, speaks of the work,
then In progress, of gathering th wild grapel
for wine. The writer aayt : .
The wine made last teason dost not content
me. It baa arloh oolor and bouquet, ana a
peculiar and fine flavor, and a good body; but
it is intensely aoid yes, iaUuuly is the term.
This acidity I shall try to lessen greatly la
that now being made. Tbe process or making,
as we pursue it, Is simple enough. The grapes
are passed through ono of Hiokok's Older mills,
(made at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and just
tbe thing for tbe purpose.) ana passes oireotiy
Into th frmnting-tub, whenoe it is drawn off
into barrels or. eu:ss, after fermenting some
seventy or oighty hours. There It remains for
a time, when it is fined and , racked off, ready
for bottling, and for use. There is not
doubt but that a very superior red wins can be!
made from this grape. But the process must
be well understood, and the different manipula
tions nroperlv gone through with.:
A gentleman there from Madeira thinks col
onies oould be established iu Texas of many
who are now suffering In Madeira, who would
cultivate grapes upon the same terms thsy did
in that Island before the disease attaoked and
destroyed the vines that is, giving the pro
priotorof the land one-half of the -must, and
soiling tneir nair at a nxou rate.
