Plant plenty of cotton, of course;
it always brings Ibo money; and with
it you will be enabled to pay for your
guano?that valuable and indis
pensable article, without which it
would be very foolish for any man to
try to make, a crop. It is more easily
applied, and so much better than
stable manure, and so little trouble
to procure. A ride to town or to the
depot, and the simple signing of your
name to a slip of paper will be the
means of obtaining for you all you
may desire. Stable manure and cot
ton seed are too bulky, and require
so much n.ore labor to app'y, that by
many their use is utterly ignored, and
the fashionable, cheap, valuable and
concentrated guano has taken the
plat e of the old-fashioned manures.
Plant largely of cotton. It sounds
big to talk about your crop of cotton.
It serves to make you interested in
the money market and the price of
the staple both in this country and
in Europe. It seems to quicken the
perceptive faculties, and cause you to
oaYulato how mu6h guano you can
buy lor so much cotton, for by many
this is the purpose for which it is
raised; or, if not, it is the only pur
pose to which the money received lor
it can be applied.
Plant largely of cotton und neglect
your corn crop, because if you make
cotton you can purchase corn (on n
credit, and meat, loo) but if you raise
corn and a plenty of it, you will have
fat horses, hit cattle, fat hogs, and
money in baud, and then you will he
deprived of the exquisite pleasure of
asking for credit, and being some
times refused. This luxury will have
to he dispensed with. And do you
not desire lids?of course not, for it
is such a delightful feeling to owe
your factors, to bo indebted to your
merchants, tu know that almost every
man you meet has your note in his
pocket, past due, and to be button
holed and dunned a dozen limes a
cay; it adds so much to a man's
popularity, it is so soothing to your
; nerves, so tranquilizing to your
I whole system; gives you such an ex
cellent appetite, and produces such
quiet and refreshing slumbers, that
you cannot ufiord to dispense with it.
Being in debt is such a glorious feel
ing, so conducive to healtha?d hap
piness, that, you feel it tubs your
duty to yourself, to your family, and
to your friends, to owe, and to do
this plant plenty of cotton, for it will
be sure to keep .you in debt, and if
(his will make you contented, you
will be happy indeed. You can, in
your leisure moments, sympathize,
with your neighbor who has a smoke
house full of bacon, of his own rais
ing; acorn crib well filled with largo
cars of the golden grain, who has
plenty of money and is troubled
about seeking a safe and secure in
vestment for bis surplus. Go and see
him; you can relieve him of his
trouble; your plantation lies adjoin
ing his, and as a friend, assist him in
investing his money by borrowing it,
and ^ive him a niortyngc on your
place. What a satisfaction this wilt
be to you, to know you have done
your neighbor good, and to know
that in a few years he will have con
trol of nil your premises, and you be
relieved cntiiely from the cares and
responsibilities of ownership. What
a joke it will be to tell how you have
succeeded In making your neighbor
with his corn and his meat pay the
taxes now, formerly paid by you.
Put then he deserves to be punished
in this way, because he never was
much of a planter; ho only made a
lew bales of cotton, end was hardly
known nut of his district; but you are
a big planlor?you make your hund
red bags, und nro known in Savan
nah as a gentleman who is always in
debt, whose colton crop never real
izes a sufficient amount to pay your
expenses for the current year. This
is your reputation; do you enjoy it?
If you do, plant largely of cotton. If
you do not like the picture, change
your course, and try to livo at home;
make your plantation self-sustaining;
plant corn, raise meat, and let your
cotton crop be restricted to a surplus
only, first raising everything else you
need In preference to the snowy
staple. When yon do this, then a
change will come; you will soon bo
your own master, and not be as you
arc now, and as you have been for
years?the slave of the cotton factor
and the commission merchant. Take
advice while there is time; profit by
the admonition before it is too late,
and plant more corn.? Sutuhiyeiifv j

Too Much Noise foh tue Size,?
After :: iust ridiculousand extrava
?j .. pica by a young lawyer, in a
trivial ens , mi older lawyer, who had
a way ot s: ying quaint tin ngs, re
run rk cd. . . opening the opposing side
of the case, that this young friend's
elaborate plea reminded him of the
experience of a neighbor of his who
was once engaged in breaking a colt,
and the story he told o*' it was in
substance like this:
The colt brnker made his young
son hide in the bush, while he himself
v as to mount the animal and put him
at his top speed I o the hiding place,
and then the hoy was to rush sudden
ly out and shout "Boo!" the ide:i
being to prove how well the colt would
stand the scars.
Every thing was done, according to
programme, but the result was alto
gether too much of a scare for the
colt, who kicked up his heels and put
down his head and the old man was
thrown over it far into the read on
Clearing the dust from his loosened
teeth he made, for the boy with the
switch he had cut to drive the colt,
and with rage began to dreas the
astonished young man down,shouting,
"What did you do that for ? What
diil you do that for ?"
"Hut father," said the crying boy,
?'you told mc to holler "boo!"
"Yes," ,.saiil the old man, "but,
dang it, yt was altogether soo big a
'boo' for strstnall a colt."
A Thoughtful Tailor.?A
young man fVom one of the. suburban
districts, say the Daubury Actes, was
in (>ne of our tailor shops getting
measured fur a vest the other after
"Married or single ?*''queried the
merchant after taking dttwh the num
"Unmar; ied," said the young man,
with, a blush.
"Inside pocket on the left hand
side, then," observed the tailor, as if
to himself, making a momorandum to
that effect. After a moment's pause
the young man from the country was
prompted to ask :
"What difference docs my being
married or unmarried make with the
inside pocket of my vest?"
"Ali, my dear sir," observed the
tailor, with a bland .-mile, ' all differ
ence possible, 03 you must see. Being
unmarried you want the pocket on
the left side, so as to bring the young
lady's picture next to ycur heart."
"lint don't the married man also
want his wife's picture next to his
heart.?" queried the anxious youlli.
"Possibly there is an instance of
that kiiM,'' .said the tailor, niching
his eyebrows; "but I never heard of

A V??.SESwAI lot.'ED EY A BOY.?
A curious and very singular accident
happened to a son of James O'llelan,
who resides on Saratoga street,
Cohoes, N; Y. It seems that Willie,
the youngest child, a bright boy of
twelve or fifteen years of age, laid
down in the corner of the kitchen,
and being tired out from play, was
soon fast asleep. The fasher was
reading at a table placed in the cen
tre of the room, the rest of the family
were all in bed, and consequently the
bouse was perfectly still. Suddenly
a startling cry came from the child,
which aroused the father, who made
a rush for the boy and asked him
what was the matter. The boy clasp
ed his father in his arms, and with
starting eyes exclaimed, "Father, I
s wal l od a mouse, and I feel him biting
me inside !" In an instant the father
bad the house aroused, and a mess
enger was scut for a doctor, who soon
arrived and administered an emetic,
which had the desired effect, and the
boy, after some terrible retching,
threw up the mouse, and, strange to
relate, the creature was alive and
active, and made his escape to a hole
in the floor. It appears that while,
the child slept he had his mouth open,
and the mouse, which was a very
"small one, got frightened by a mus
cular action of the child, jumped into
his mouth and down his throat; but
how he remained alive in the boy's
stomach is a mystery.
Benjamin Willis ami his two sisters
were equally detenu.tied on Ihe ques
tion of his marrying?he that he
would, and they that he shouldn't.
This was in Bangor, which city is
greatly excited by the row in the
Willis family, which is wealthy.
Benjamin got. married, and while in
Portland on the bridal trip, the sis
ters had him arrested as a lunatic. A
medical examination, however, de
in ?nstrated hissounduess of mind and
he was liberated.
The arc thousands of children in
this country who have never seen a
silver ten cent piece or silver quarter.
What a very interesting kindergarten
lesson there is now in slore for tho
little folks. Paterfamilias must take
the first ten cent piece that comes 10
him in trade, and carry it to his little
blue-eyed darling, and exp'ain to her
tho name of the coin, its value, and
teach her its commercial usese by
sending her to invest it in sugarplums.
Formerly it was a maxim that a
young woman - should never be mar
ried until she had rpun herself a sot
of body, table and bed linon. From
this custom all unmarried womeu
wero termed spinsters.
It wwi in a New JeraojriSunday
school. The Superintendent appro
ached a youth of color who was pre
sent for the first time, aud inquired' j
his name for the purpose of placing it
on the roll. The good man tried in

answer was returned, "Well, massa
calls me Captain, but my maiden
name is Moses."
