'Grape Cnltnre in Virginia.
A. i!ii('i'i"'li'lrllt -of tli Richmond
Whig gives us tltrt fallowing observa
tion and fnggeitioue upon grpo culture
in Virginia, which should not fail to
engage (ho attention of tlione who have
or contemplate raising vineyard :
Tbe land to be clevoted to (Lis lusi
ncss;, in tho beginning, need nut le
much. Odo acre will ens We one to
make a pretty clever Etart, especially if
tho boginnor is poor r pounced of but
littlo capital. Aud if, after: pnyinff (or
the vines, the) beginner cannot nurd a
liorse to plow the land, it may lie dug
up with tUo pick and spade. It doc
not take a very long time to dig up
an aero of land. One hand con
stantly engaged on it can very nearly
or quits prpparn it in a weak' lime, lu
another week the saiuo bund can plant
the vines. Hut to uiuke sure of it, lut
us give thin ono hand cue month to do
tlio work in. The work of jrepaviiig
and planting the ground u then -done,
aud ilono at an expense for tools, labor,
Ac., of less than twenty. five dollar. If
tho planting is done; in tho full, which
is, perhaps, lie?t all things consid
ered the land chould be mulched, that
is, covered over to tho depth of an inch
. or two with ola leaves, pinctara, or souie-
thing of the sort, which will require the
labor of ouo man and a horse say a week
to petiorm. jiuin more is now
Deeded till the vines beiu to start in
the spring, which will be early in Hay j
thou a cultivator tnoulJ be run turoueh
.111 . i .
. mo lanu every i: u uuyg or so, aurtug
the summer, and the ground be kept
tree Irom crocs ov weeds.. At this tuno,
, that is at time of tho first plowing, the
vines should bo carefully overlooked,
. and all tho buds or shoots, except the
.. strongest ono nearest tbe earth, rubbed
- off, and n small stake, four or live feet
in length, stuck up by each ouo, to
. which the youn shout should bo tied
us soon ns it has attaiucd sufficient
. length to cna-blo the operator to do so
liy the time the third plowiug (or
digging up n tno cultivator bas uo
jneiins of plowing) has been completed.
,' the vino will bavo probably grown to I wcor tc"r
, tho length of 18 or "20 inches and made July 24, 1SQ3.-Cw
, ten joints. If so, they may then bo
f topped, if profit is to bo derived from
Jho vinos tho first year. This will cause
, the suckers to grow, and t tho same
. time make tho vino ltow more stocky
nnd heavy, which is of importance to
. its lutuio value.
Some timo in July, not later than the
25th, tho viues may bo layered; that
is, taken down trout , the stakes, and
covered with earth; and if this is pro-
, perly done, each uckcr ou them will
y make a good vino for tiozt year's plant-
. Jng, or to sell to your neighbors, who
may also want a vineyard. The one
thousand vines planted on this oue acre
, of land, amy in this way bo made to
. yield at least five thousand greenwood
, layers, or vines from layers, worth in
'. any market at least Jvo hundred de liar si
. Thus it will bo seen that a vineyard
properly oared for aud cultivated, way
, be made to pay the whole expense of
plants, planting and cultivation even
, the first year, aud leave a small margin
of profit to the owner besides.
i 15ut tho work must bo carefully nnd
thoroughly cone, or it will fail.' Jivcry
j part ot the Jabor must bo perfuLined
r promptly and well, and at the right
time, j acre must tie no mincing, uo
' 4 half work. It will not answer in gVupo
culture. Ju fact, I do nut believe it
, nuswcis well in the cultivation of uuy-
Mow, tho fall of tho first year has
been reached. t uu exjieuse, all told, of
not over, three Itundred dollars, which
, has been more thau met by the pro
ceeds, how shall wo begin the next or
i second) year's work t
Aftor we bavo carefully taken up our
new made vines, aud uaiit set up the
. old oue, which is uow cut off uear the
. earth, r with oue or two buds still at
tached, tho ground is thoroughly cleared
' , und again mulched, uud left quietly till
spring. Tho young vines, ure carefully
cut apart, una either, immediately set
j into viueyards,. or houled tit in tho
, cround somewhere, where they can bo
eouveuiontly bud whon called fur,
, ii wouiu prouaoiy bo best to cum
inc n co iuc siuiug a woik whii tbe tree
. tioa t'f ticllid for tho proper training
or tbo viuo this year, liut this is imt
absolutely necessary. We can use the
, saiuo stake) that helped us a!on; so weil
. last year fur this reason. Tho ground
, hhouid be well cultivated as fur tbu first
year; that is the cultivator should be
run through itut least oneo a fortnight,
, uud ail the giuss and weeds kept dowu
JJut 1 do not intend now to trouble
tho reader with my views of the best
. manner of training viues the second,
, thud and -tmbscquciit years. I will
leave that . fur sumo . future article
r Sull'uo it to, say, ut piesent, that there
. ought to bo eousiderablo prutlt derived
from tho viues tho second year, uud
more than en JUgh to pay expenses, largo
as tht' w4!'. necessarily be, if the vines
lire trclliscd, and enough to satisfy even
, a Virginian that his future suceens is
certain, nnd his vineyard to bocoiuo a
. paying institution.
.. l'Vow tho foregoing views, threo
things would appear to bo certuitu'
Fust. That any ouo who has uti aero
of land suitable fur a vlucyaril, .(and
. auy laud that will grow good wheat will
i;row good grapes,) enough .inoiiey to
, iurcbus o:i'i tliuuMind vines, and tools
to dig up the land with, is qualified to
become u grower of that most delicious
. of all fruits tho grapo.
St'oond. That with but little more
cost fur labor than it would requite to
produce an ueie f voru,:nd with quite
us much cci'taiuty, a crup of gr;ipuvaes
may be. produced, which , will pay all
the expense of production and leave a
iiiargiu besides fur a profit that would
pun. luxe moro coin thau the same acre
of land would produuo if plai.lcd iu
Third, That any number of acres of
land, f i om one to one hundred, may be
. treated ill the same way wittl the same
.results. The world is wide, und, the
domuud wilt grow pari yuitu with the
