Tbo.1 highly favored both in soil and
climate, what abnll wo produce mainly f
Witb biuocrs diffidence I shall cfl'er a
few suggestions in this regard :
la a country o sparsely Milled as
ours, aod Whore lands: are he'd iu aucb
Urge bodies, tbe theory of a division of
labor ia not sound teonomy io farming
operations. Every farm should be an
nearly independent and lelf supporting
in all respect us it can possibly be
made. Id mercantile parlance, a far
mer should, if possible, be a yenerul
dealer to at least tbe extent of bi own
coubUtiiDtion. riuntiiii?, therefore, as
cootradistiuiruiabed fiom farming by
which we understand a special devotion
to cotton, rice, tobacco, or any great stu
pie, is liable to ibis objecliou, it is cot
aelfsustuiniDg. An impcrtect and ua
wise arrangement, that is, by which so
many of our planters expend tue pro
oecds of their staple crops for provisions
and stock, thus paying double profits
and commissions, as well a.s shipping
away the fatness of their soils every
year and placing uothing back in lieu of
it. Every man who tills the sou as i
means of living should surely first pro'
vide himself with everything which bis
farm will crow before be plants a single
seed for sale. Another objettion to
planting, or upeciul farming, is tbat it is
ruinously destuctive ot tenuity and an
enemy to improvement of lauds, Jt is,
I believe, an accepted truto that there
are do means ot permanent improve'
went in our soils equal to tbe oultiva
tion of aome of tbe grasses and tho rear
ing of flocks, which both return and re
turn fertility to tbe eartu. We are
here directly on the dividing line la
twuen tbe piantiutr and tue kiuzidc re
gions of the United States, and by a ju
dicious and scientific iutermingling of
botb I give it as my unbesitutiug opin
ion tbat we stand ia a belter position
to secure wealth by agricultural means
than auy other people oil the continent
To sucessfnlly duvelopo the agricult
ural wealth of our country i deeru
not only necesary to reform our plan
ting system, but to open out uew paths
and to diversify to the utmost extent
our productions. This will secure im
munity, to a great extent, against tbs
uccideuts of the seasons, enlarge our
markets, and bring into proutublj em
ploy oicnt much labor as of to men
and children now so little used. Aud
here permit me to remark that I regret
to see tbat your committee, iu making
up their very large list of premiums,
have failed to offer any inducements for
essays or other information in regard
to many to us new departments of
industry. A change in this respect is
imperatively demanded by our altered
circumstances. In reflecting upon tbe
many new fields of agricultural enter
prise upon which our people might en
ter, I am forcibly impressed With tbe
opinion tbat tbe two most promising of
sure results, aud best adapted to our
scarcity of capital and labor, are tbe
cultivation of the viu in tbe lowlands
and tbe orchards and dairies of the
highlands in these two States. No sur
er road to fi rtune, it seems to me, can
be found than lies here for intelligent
The Scuppernog grape alone, wiih its
various crossings, is a source of nn
mense profit. It is extremely baidy,
its culture is simple, and since tbe olus
ters of Eschol. u is perhaps the most
wonderfully prolfio grape io tho world.
Its home 1", too, ia tbat sandy belt cov
ere4 by thu loog-leafj pine, heretofore
erroneously considered almost valueless.
lit ta, wi bout trencbtnjr at all upon
!uab! irraiu soils, enough wino could
be made from St to lupply tbo markets
of tb.3 world, aod plac? even in tlie cab
ins of tbe poor purer ami bealtbier
drink than i ton seeu in tbo salons of
tbe r icb and grat.
A atatcoent of tbe yiold aud tbe sales
of wioe by a few geaUemeu wLo bavo
recently engaged in this busiuess iu
North Carolina would inake many a man
tre who oontinwes to gather leu bush
els of oib, or live of wb a', por acre
from bis worn-out i.'lds, after tbe uian
uor of bin fathers.
Tbe capai'itj i.f this grape is indeed
almost tuutvcllous. 1 have derived soma
information ia regard to tbo subject
from a practical and experience! grower
of ft in llnplin oouuty, North Carolina,
wh oh I give as follows : An acre nil!
bear twjuty-ono vines forty feet apart
At three years old each vino yields one
peek of grapes ; at five, two bushels;
at too, twenty-tive bushels ; at fifteen,
forty bushels ; many vines actually bear
ins fifty bushels. A - busbol of best
grapes, weighing sixty pounds, will
make four cillous of iuico, which will
yield ubout tlireo and a half gallons of
wise, readily coiumnudiui' io market
92.60 per gallon. Tbo poiuico will uuke
five gallons of vinegai, worth fifty cents
per gallon, tie nave tbus Jfll J)as
the proeeeds of ono bushel; 8 150 as
the proceeds of one full-grown vine,
99,4u0 as tbe possible proceeds of one
ere. A result iiiui almost exccens
belief, and I stale it with diflii
donee on what appears to me reliable
authority. Even .reducinif every item
by uirje-ten tliH, it would still leave this
grape too most proliuu and most protii
able one iu ibo world ; which I verily
believe it to be. And I aiu assured hy
the best authority in the State tbat
81,000 per acre is a very moderate cal
culation. Tbe labor and expenditures
are very trifling, the whole not exceed
ing about thirty-three oeuts per gallou,
including cost ot real estate.
At to tin) wine itself, when properly
made, Professor Charles T, Jackson, in
tbe l'atent Office Report of IH.VJ, says
of it : "Tho rich flavor of thw grnpo
renders it peculiurit valuable, ,ib? wine
havinir the fla"or and b'siuut of the
celebrated Tokay wino of lluugarv
Tbe (TTipe, however, oauuot b cultiva
ted in tlut open air north (if Virginia,
and is a native of North Carolina It
is desirable (bat extensive vineyards
should be established in I but rMuto ox
pressly fir the eultivation of this grape,
rhieh will n.hkr a wine lint w.ll h
imwaassesuai i iwh i'innnnn i
most eaeerly sought for as tbe best of I
American native wines."
With regard to the difficulty existing
in so calm a climate as ours of prevent
ing tbe ascetio fermentation in the
manufacture of wine, I suppose mere
need be do further troublo. I believo
that is now pretty well established that
although our summers are long, and the
grape ripens while the season is yet too
warm to make wine, the proper tempera-
lure can be obtained by means of taulta
and te lars to secure tho vinous fermen
tation iu any part of tbe States ; whilst
in tho frostlcss belts of the highlands
the grape has been known to hang on to
tho vine in perfect keeping until De
cember. This is, of course, tbe most
favorable of all possible conditions for
vine culture a climate sufficiently wanu
to ripen the grape, and sufficiently cool
at the season of the vintage to secure
the vinous fermentation sixty-nve de
grees reing cool enough for that pur
A single fct is sufficient to bhow tbe
capacity of this country for grape cul
ture. Ibe Scuppernog and tbe lar
famed Catawba, the two best and most
productive varieties on the coutinent,
are natives of North Carolina. Stran
gers have trans-planted them to do better
soil and a far ruder ami less congenial
clime, and grown rich upon their cul
ture, whilat we plough our worn-out
cornfields, hoe our soil-destroying to
bacco, and talk of nurd times aud the
scarciiy of money !
