.[Essas. EDIroRs: The cultivation of
the diflereit, kinds of small grains his
!iot received from u(rIII planters tha-it
attention which they' so ftully ilerit and
so amply repay. It is pretty gener
ally proved that Wheat caint be
produced on our Sea Islaird lands, but
it is not necessary to go flr from
salt water in order to be able to grow it
with reasonable success. When it can
be grown) So Cheaply, I caln see Ito ra
Soi for devoting every etlbrt to the1
productioni ofa staple so inciertaii, anid
at timrues, SO un1pllitable, as C(ottoni
aid depeiding upon other to supply
us with wheat flour, which can be inade
quite as good and as cheaply at home.
To raise Barley, it is absolutely le
cessary that it should be sown in
land rather sandy, ail either natural.
ly rich or made so by liberal manuring.
Barley is not used aimong us as
food, but when cut green is the sweet
est, and anong the earliest, of all the
small grains, and when ripe, furnishes
excellent and very early fiod for hor
ses and poultry.
Rye can be grown in alirost Cv
ery soil, even the poorest, though it
prefers a sandy one, and the prod: 1.
very inaterially depends upon the fir
tility of the soil. For citting gr een, it
is neither so early nor so) palatable to
stock, as cither W heat or Barley, but
it can stand severe cold and close pas
turing inuch better than either of them.
The Oat is the (ost valuable as
well as the iost gencrally cultivated
in the lower country of all the
small grains.
For cutting green or pa!stuiring, Sep
teiber is the proper imoith flr sow
ing all of these grains, but when the
grain is the consideration, October is
the better season. When sown later,
both Wheat and Rye are less produe
tive, more liable to rust, aid more til.
ceitain; while Oats and Barley nav be
profitably sown during the months of
January, February and March, though
the earlier they are sown, the more
productive and certain the crop will
generally prove. An excellent time
to sow Oats is the first half of Jan
uary, as when sown at this time they
will be tip and green before the cold
spell that we usually have in Febru.
ary, which would kill them if in the
white sprout.
The largest and best crops of all of
these grains that I have ever made were
made, by running a furrow with a
small plough, whether Barshare or
Bull-tongue, on the Cotton, Corn or
Pea beds, as close to the stalks or
vines, which need not be cut fir this
purpose, as can be done convenient
ly, turnin the earth downwards into
the alley. The grains are then sown by
hand, and covered by another furrow,
of the same plough, tak- n from a lit
tle higher up.
The quantity of seed necessary will
materially depend upon the fertility of
the soil and the time of sowing. Early
sowing and fertile soils require less
seed than late sow~ng a poor soil, when
sown in tile above miannier about half
the usual quantity of seed per- acre on
ly is required as it tilleis much1 more;
when a lar-ge crop is, desired, and the
cotton seed can b~e had, six parts of
cot~ton seed may ho miixed with each
part of grain, and the two sown to
gether. It is easy to jnudge whent the
sowing is as thick as desired. I have
successfully pursued another- plan ini
root potatee land, where no hogs nre
kept or- allowed to have access; this
consistslin stri pping dowii the vines and
siding or underimining the beds as
usual, then strew or soiw the (oats &'c.
over the vines &c. and cover by pul
ling with care, the earth from the mid
dle of the bed across the alley, so as
to coverall or most of the seed. Cirops
sOwn in either wvay neither admit of
nor requir-e any fur-ther cultivation,
even in very stitf soils, resist drought.
or rains much better tihani when sown in
the usual way, and produ~ce very near
ly, if not quite, as much. TIhie p'a-t sea
son I sowed 1 1-2 acres of Rye and
4 acres of Oats to the hand, "by the
fir-st method, without missing the la
bor roqtuired to saw the crop, iand
although the spring was unusually
unfavorable yet I made the Ilargest crop
of both these grains that I have ev
er made, and bothl filled well.
I have made good cr-ops of both
Rye and Oats by ploughing up the
land, trenching fun-rows ever-y 25 ih
es with the bll tongue plough, and
covering with another furrowv of the
same plough; when thus sown, they
require to be worked in thle spr-ing at
least once, and the best cult ivation thien
in stiff soils, is one furrow of a subsoil,
or rather ground mnole plough. w-hich
breaks tup the soil three or fouir iinch
es deep. .Without sonme such plou1gh.
ing, the crop on suchl soils is atpt to
be poor-, even though worked thlrough]
wit h the hoe. This wvorking cani ver
seldom be given without muchel incon
venience. The cr-op thnts made, ev
en though it may somect!:nes prove a
better one, yet always costs much, and
sometimes more than it is worth.
If the corn, &c. stalks are at an
time cut down' these crops might, ev.
en in bedded lands, be harvested wsith
little labor or loss of timre, by using
the reaping machine of either Hlussey
or Mc~obmick.

the hailee is anthorised to employ hill
in any business to which slaves are oi

that the slave was only to be en

My Friends:-lf you have to 'ex.
ecute the enclosed W ill, and nothing in
the character of either of the men
snould change your views, I rcom-n
imend that Robert W. Estlin and
Thomias 1B. Lee should succeed to my
commercial house and wind up, tin.
der your directIon, my old commer.
cial business. It will be a fortune to
them, and I wish them to have it. I
would have been glad for James
A.- M Allmser t. e assoiated, but he
has always objected to New-Orleans. I
know them to be faith/ful, Capable
and honest.
My charities will all be done in
my life-titne, and justice to nil while
livinig; so I leave ito obligations only
gratitude and friendship.
Charge fiii cominissiois on tny
estate. It is worth this day over fi'
teen hundred thousand dollars.
I believe in the Christian Religion,
though an unworthy believer.
I want 1i1y Iegros well tFc'ated: But
for abolitionism, i should have been
able to do more for them.
May God bless you!

cut slightly on tile bias not enough to

You are bridegroom now and bride,

Warmest love till death divide.

That should sorrow e'er distress you,
You may meet and love in Heaven.
OBITUARY.
Departed this life, on the 22nd September,
M~rs..SUSAN LEONoRA WILDEa, wife of Mir.
WVAIaREN TI. WILDER, after a painful illness of
a few days, in the 24ith year of her age. DIr.
Wilder has left an affectionate husband, one
beloved brother aiid sister, and a large circle of
relives and friends, to mourn their loss.
She embraced Religion when quite young,
and united herself with the Baptist Church, os
which she was a worthy member during life.
1Her manners were mild and unassuming: great
amiability of, character-a noble, generous
forgiving heart ! But she has gone from among
us. In her deathl the church has sustained a
loss,-ihe husband a most devoted and affee
tionato wife.
Tro the bereaved family I would say, stay
your grief, for It is written of the Righteous
"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord !
too lovely to remain in this sinful world, the
Saviour chose her to be with him.
And Angels from the throne on highi,
Have welcomed her to regions fair,
Another bright Star gilds the sky,
A Seraphim is shiing there.
While dwelling here the lovely flower,
Blushed betneathi the roses shade;
Now she adorns a heavenly bower,
Where its hues will never fade.
So bright a gem seemed better far,
To gleam beyond the sky,
Shi was given to show what Angels are,
Then like a flowver to-die!
