The Chops. A Milledgeville correspondent
of the Augusta Constitutionalist writes :
1 am pleased to bear cheering report of tho
growing wheat, and of tho abundance of food
in the country. Many members declare that
there is a surplus of all kinds of food, except
wheat, save in the upper part of the State. I
am inclined to think there is much truth in
this impression, and that thero is no occasion
for the panic which holders are trying to get
up on the wheat question. The disposition
seems general to discourage the planting of
cotton, and thus make doubly sure the supply
of food. Tt would bo a paradox for a people,
blessed ns wo are, with tho most bountiful soii
on irtli, to be reduced to vassalago for want
of food. There is no danger of such a result,
and if every acre is put in food this spring in
six months there will be sucu a disgorging of
granaries; and warehouse as will rnako cn-grosr-ef,
vampires, and all kindred traitor?

The Burning of Jacksonville,
Fla. Yankee Account.
A correspondent of tho New York Tri
bune, writing lrom Jacksonville, Fla.,
.March 2S, gives n record of Yankeo
arson and outrages porpetrnted iu that
beautiful State, which exceeds in enor
mity any of tho devilish deeds .which
have heretofore reached us. It will
be seen that these outrages were per
petrated by the Cih Connecticut and
bth Maine regiments, and that these
demons have been brought to Port
.Royal to participate in tho operations
against Charleston and Savannah.
Should a land fight occur at either
place, and any members of tho regi
ments specified be jcaptured, wo trust
our officers will not lose sight of tho
atrocities perpetrated by them in Flori
da. Tho following is the Tribune's
"Jacksonville is in ruins. That beau
tiful city which has been for so many
years tho favorite resort of invalids
from tho .North, has to-day been burnt
to the ground, and, what is sad to
record, by tho soldiers of tho national
army. Scarcely a mansion, a cottage,
a negro hut or a warehouse remains.
Tho long lines of magnificent oaks,
gr ion and beautiful with tho thickest
tbliago ; the orange groves perfuming
the a'r with their blossoms, the syca
mores, the old century plants adorning
every garden ; the palmetto and bayo
net trees, ever tropical in verdure; the
rose and' tho jessamine all that at
this season indeed, I might say
through all seasons has made Jack
sonville a little Eden, has been bin ned,
and scorched, and crisped, if not en
tirely consumed to ashes, by tho de
"Yesterday the beautiful little cot
tago used as the Catholic parsonage,
together with the church, wns fired by
some of the soldiers, and in a short
time burned to the ground. Before
the flames had fairly reached the
church, the soldiers burst open the
doors and commenced sucking it of
everything of va'ue. Tho organ was
in a moment lorn to .-trips, and almost
every soldier who came out seemed1 to
be celebrating the occasion by blowing
through an organ pipe.
''J'o dav the same spec-fade lias been
repeated, only upon a much rgraudor
scale. There mu.-t have been some
understanding among tho iucendario.
with regard to the conflagration. ,
H o'clock the flames burst from several
buildings in different purls of tlio city,
and a later hour still more wero iired.
The wind then rose to a stiff gale, and
the torch of the incendiaries became
unnecessary to increase the fire. The
only mansions of any value left .stand
ing, as we move down tho river, are
tho elegant mansions of Col. Sander
son and Judge Burritt, both rebels and
scoundrels of the deepest dye. The
negro troops took no i art whatever
in the perpot ration of this vandalism.
They hud nothing to do with it, and
were, simply silent spectators of the
splendid but sad spectacle. The if.h
Connecticut charge it upon tho 8lh
Maine, and the Sth Maine hurl it back
unou the Glh Connecticut."
Among tho most important and
most neglected products of the coun
try is the Chinese Sugar Cane. A
small scope of land and a small amount
of labor is enough to fatten pork and
supply sirup plentifully for a large
family. The cultivation in cane, of a
given space of land, will not require
over half tho labor that it would in
cotton ; and about, double tho amount
of money would be realized, even at
