Spieial Correspondence of The BEPrBLicAN.
Fernandina, June 14. Florida is as
much tho land of flowers as of fruit. A gentleman
formerly of Virginia, but novr a resident of this
place, owns a very handsome residence here,
which is surrounded by beautifully improved
grounds. A very fiuo specimen of the American
agave, commonly called the century plant, is pre
paring to bloom in thfcc grounds. These plants
tloivcr but once in their lifetime, and then
die down after they attain maturity (in the
climate of Florida a period often to twenty years).
They send up a straight, upright stem twenty or
more feet in height, and at the base often eight to
ten inches ij diameter, along which arc
small suppressed l.inceolated brandies, with
a terminal panicle, often bearing from
three to four thousand flowers. The -larc ameri
Ctma was carried from America to Europe in 15GI,
and in Knropean hot-houses they were often nearly
one hundred years old before reaching maturity,
from which circumstance they obtained the name
of century plant. They ore easily propagated by
suckers, and arc used for fences iu Italian Switzer
land, and have become naturalized in most of the
southern countries of .Europe. The leaves, on be
ing macerated with water, yield a coarse fibre,
which in Mexico is manufactured into ropes, ham
mocks, and such articles. The pulque used iu
Mexico as an intoxicating beverage is extracted
from the species known as Agave viarkana.
THE AGAVE AMKP.ICAN'A
is a very beautiful aud ornamental plant, and has
now become so general iu Florida.that its bloom
ing has become an annual occurrence in the
older portions of the State. The flower is magnifi
cent in size, although neither very beautiful nor
fragrant. Advices from Tallahassee. Archer, and
and other portions of the State speak of the
drouth. Vegetation is becoming dry and parched.
The yield of Irish potatoes will not be so large as
was expected. Yet even this condition of affairs
hns its "sunny s.idc:" for it is said there is
nothing so good for the cotton crop as a
dry May. Much use is made of the
cotton-seed meal. A ton of meal contains thirty
eight pounds of pota.sh and fifty-six pounds of
phosphoric acid, with seventy-eight pounds of
nitrogen. It is. thus rich enough iu these elements
to be useful as a fertilizer, for which purpose it is
extensively used in the South. Being so rich a
food, it cannot well be given to animals except in
very small quantities, llorscsthrivc on it if given
but two pounds daily with cornmeal. Two pounds
of it are equal to ten pounds of oats. If used as a
food jtoo abundantly, however, it becomes very
injurious. This is doubtless on account of its
highly nitrogenous nature.
OKC OF THK ILL EFFECTS
of too much tibc for food of this meal is an inflam
matory condition of the system, and horaes suffer
from irritation of the skin and sore mouth. It is
as though a man was fed on extract of beef, rich
pastry, and such food only. When used judi
ciously and with a knowledge of its character and
value it is the cheapest (at its present price, S3) a
ton) and one of the most useful foods we have in
the South. As it is rich in nitrogen and oil, it
should be utcd with food rich in starch, such as
potatoes and roots. One pound of cotton-seed
meal, mixed with half a peck of boiled potatoes
nnd mashed together, will make good food for a
milking cow. One pound of cotton-seed meal is
considered equal to two pounds cf com-mcaL
have been suggested for the drainage of the Okc
ehobec swamps. It is claimed by some that except
during the rainy season portions of these lands are
amply drained by natural outlets: the rain, how
ever, w hen it is excessive, chokes up these outlets
and the lands arc covered with water, not because
they are low, but because there are no channels
wide enough to contain the floods that flow trom
S' ch an immense area. It is said that many per
sons who have passed up the St. John's by the im
mense reedy swamps south of Lake Harney are
fully satisfied that such a swift, strong current
flows from no low prairie, but an elevated table
land, aitd the late surveys fully establish this fact.
On one side this drains into Okechobce, on the
other into the St. John's, while Ten-Mile Creek and
the San Sebastian pour turbid streams of fresli
INTO INDIAN HI VCR.
In some seasons row-boats have even penetrated
from the St. John's through the swamps and by
way of the San Sebastian to the coast. Whether
tho land is rich enough to make cane culture
profitable is doubtful ; but it is asserted that on
soil of tho same character Captain Burnham. ot
the Cape Canaveral light-house, has gathered
large crops for fifteen jears, aud this with a hoc as
his only implement of cultivation. The past sea
son lie is said to bare made eight hundred gal
lons to the acre of No. 1 syrup on land that had
been growing the sime crop for twelve years, with
only one replanting. Certainjy this can be done
in some portions of the land to bo reclaimed.
Much of it is certainly unfit for corn, cane, or any
of their kindred: but for the pineapple, however,
it is exactly fit. and it Is predicted that these beau
tiful land? will become as productive as any other
in the Slate and the pineapple take a more promi
AMONG TUE EXTOnTS OF FLORIDA
at no distant day. Even now plants are eagerly
sought for. and bring good prices, and the annual
increase in acreage is limited by the inability to
obtain sets. Most of these are obtained from Key
Largo in small boats, by dangerous navigation
through the Jupiter Inlet and down the coast. On
this block of coquinay a gentleman has thirty
acres in bananas and pineapples, and he estimates
$500 per nere as only an average yield. Truly one
may expect other than orange " booms " in Florida,
and yet many who go to the. State with no such
idea very soon become interested in orange cul
ture. In thU connection the views of a gentleman
Iroin Green Cove Springs arc interesting. He says :
' Every one who comes to live in Florida, what
ever his intentions may be, soon becomes infected
THE ORANGE FEVER,
and plants a grove. It is amusing to note the
growth of this orange mania upon the new-comer,
lie is here for health perhaps, or to avoid the cold
winters of the North: has thought to confine him
self to his profession, or possibly to the mercantile
business: if he is a farmer, vegetable raising in
connection with the old staples of the country
will engage his attention, bdt he doesn't much
believe in oranges or lemons: thinks the demand
for these fruits does not amount to enough to war
rant any man in taking the trouble to raise a grove.
Well enough to have plenty for family use, but to
try to make a fortune out of oranges nonsense;
that is all folly.' But he begins to hear oranges
talked morning, noon, and night; he sees boxes of
them shipped by the thousand ; he sees the owner
of a few hundred bearing trees getting a yearly
income of thousands of dollars from their fruit ; he
sees young groves set out by men who have been
in the Statu a few years longer than himself come
into bearing, and their owners, from having been
poor meu.working nam to make both ends meet,
suddenly placed in easy circumstances.
AlJ. THESE THINGS STAGGER
his philosophy: he begins to study the laws of de
mand and supply in their application to orange
and leinon ; ho learns why the Florida orange is
the best in the woild and commands the highest
price; he becomes convinced that the market can
never be oversupplied with Florida oranges, and
he can withstand the temptation no longer, but
fails into rauk and goes to setting out his
grove. Therefore his "orange grove" is his
hobby. He makes a living at other business, but
his spare time and money are devoted to his
groves. If he has the requisite qualities perse
verance, industry, Ac he will in a few years take
his place as one of tho "orange nabobs" of the
State. Of course there will always be thoe who
fail. Orange groves do not make themselves.
Their vslue consists in the very fact that it takes
years of labor to raise them. Those who succeed
need not thereafter be troubled about a living;
they have it safely and surely."
General Babcoclt and (ho Parkt.
The fact is gradually dawning upon the
citizens ot Wsshington that they are indebted to
General O. E Babcock for many of the beautiful
squares and reservations which add so much to
the appearance of the Capital. Farragut Square,
the site of Vinuie Ream-Hoxie's statue of the great
admiral, was reclaimed by General Babcock, and
from an unsightly dumping-ground has become
one of the most beautiful points :n the city

Babccck's exquisite taste and foresight Another
lact that u evident is that of late yeara there ha3

to its utmost capacity, not only every seat being
occupied, but the aisles and every available inch
of space. A largo platform had been built
out from the pulpit, and massed
together along the entire front wero the floral
tributes iu a variety of pretty devices. The front
of the organ-loft was heavily draped with large
American flagj, caught up at the centre and each
end with floral shields of immortelles.
Tho organ was very handsomely deco
rated with flags, and in the centre was a
large square of red. with the figures "1SS1"
worked upon it in white flowers. Vhcn the or
chestra sounded the first notes of the grand march
the young ladies, twenty in number, dressed in
pure white, with flowers in their hair and at their
belts, entered from a side door and tiled upon the
stage. Their appearance was greeted with applause,
and as they took their seats, forming a curve,
the demonstration of the truth that the curve Is
the true line of beauty was at once apparent. On
one side of the platform sat Trustee Lovejoy and
Superintendent Wilson, and the principal, Miss It.
E. Smith : and on the other.'.Commissioner Dent,
General Eaton, Commissioner of Education, ex
Trustee Browne, Rev. Dr. Bullock, end Professor
Gregory. Mr. B. G. Lovejoy, on behalf of
the Public School Trustees, then made a
brief speech of welcome, and called
upon Rev. Dr. Bullock, who made a
prayer. The young ladies then came foward to
the front of the platform, and, under the leader
ship of tho teacher of vocal music. Mr. Joseph II.
Daniel, rendered in a very acceptable manner a
vocal selection entitled "Tho Red Cross
Knight." Prolessor John M. Gregory, LL.D., was
then introduced, who delivered an address
upon some of the phases of modem education.
Ecforc the delivery of the address. President Gar
field, in company with Mr. C. L. Pruden, his pri
vate secretary, came upon the platform, and was
received with great applause. Upon tho conclu
sion of the address another vocal selection was
rendered by tho young ladies. Commissioner
Dent then, in very complimentary terms,
called upou the President to confer the certificates
upon the graduates. President Garfield, before
conferring the certificates, said that it gave him
great pleasure to take any part in introducing
the class to the active duties of life.
It was probably true that once a teacher
always a teacher. Ho was proud of the
fact that a considerable portion of his
life had been spent as a teacher. He rejoiced to
welcome these new teachers to their life work.
He then conferred certificates upon the following
graduates: Marion Wallace Anderson, Lizzie
Preston Brown, Emily White Dyer, Estelle Mont
gomery Fisher, Lucy Overton Fishback, Consuclo
Heilpriu, Lillian Farquhar Hershey, Cora Hodg
kins, Lida Winslow Hollister, Sarah Binetta j!c

FIRST WARD LITTLE FOLKS.
The closing exercises yesterday of schools, grade
1, proved a happy occasion for the little folks. A
pleasing programme of recitations, singing, spell
ing, &c, was presented to a goodly assemblage of
the friends of the pupils. Conspicuous among
young misses who distinguished themselves on
this occasion were Misses Ethel Camp, Katie Mc
Moncgle, Bessie Young, and Gracic Altsciiee.
Major Morgan, who was present, addressed a few
brief remarks to the children, wishing them a
pleasant vacation. Brief addnisscs were alo
made by General E.D. Townscnd and Supervis-
in? Principal Copp.
I COLORKD SCHOOLS.
j The schools of the first subdivision of the first
j division, sll grades except the eighth, located in
; the Sumner, Stephens, and Miner Buildings, were
j c!ocd yesterday. The attendance of parcnLs was
j very large at each of the buildings. A very notice
able feature in all the schools was the general
neatness of attire of the children and the prompt
manner in which the questions were answered.
The "-rtiool officers were much gratified with tho
subsian'ia! evidences of progress in these schools
and apparent increased intorest of parents and
friends, as shown by the great crowds in attend
ance. 3Ir. S. C. Elliott's Cenefit.
The testimonial benefit tendered to
Mr. S. C. Elliott by the leading amateurs of Wash
ington will take place at the National this even
ing. The comedy or "Romance and Reality,"
which will be presented, isone of John Brougham's
best efforts, and no pains have been spared in the
matter of thorough and careful rehearsals to in
sure a pleasing presentation of the play. The
cast embraces the best amateur talent in
the city, including Messrs. XV. C. Murdock,
J. Kimbsll. jr., Mis3 May McCaulay. Mias Will
iams, and others. The play is said to be peculiarly
attractive, bright in dialogue, effective in ecenery,
and with well worted-up climaxes, so that the in
terest increases to the close. Mr. Elliott ia a
youug gentleman of good talent, well known in the
city, and, as he has always readily responded when
asked for his services, he should now be rewarded
by a big house.

Close of a Highly Successful Commence
Salem, Va., June 1G. To-day closed a
very successful commencement week rt Roanoke.
Tho hall was early filled to repletion. The
platform was elaborately decorated" with ever
greens and wreaths, festooned with flags and set
off with flowers. Over the middle of the stage in
the fear, in large letters, could be read "Roanoke
College Commencement Class of 'SI Palmam
quam meruit Jerat" (the college motto.) In the
centre was a portrait of President Bittlo, bordered
with evergreens and flowers. On either side, above
and below two large wreaths, appeared the names
of tho eight States represented in the graduating
class. The effect of the whole was most pleasing.
The stage was completely filled with the trus
tees, faculty, granduating class and prominent
visitors. The young gentlemen appeared as fol

and during this period of twenty-eight years only
two gentlemen. Mr. Scudder being the second,
have received the degree of Doctor of Laws.
THE COMING COMMISSIONER.
Those TYilllnc and Anxloni to So Ap
pointed What tho Citizens Want.
The matter of a change in the Commis
sioners of the District seems to occupy tho atten
tion of numerous aspirants to serve the Govern
ment in Hint capacity. The persistent Bowen, not
content with sending a delegation daily to
the White House, yesterday inflicted an inter
view upou the unoffending Critic in order to
set forth what h believes to be his peculiar fitness
for the position. In referring to some of his acts
while mayor, Mr. Bowen says : " In my message
to the councils (June 29, 1S6S), I recommended tho
abolition of the contract system in tola and the
employment of laborers by tho day to perform cor
poration work, which alienated the contractors
from me, and that alienation exists to this day."
The writer Avell remembers some of tho day
laboriug that was performed during tho
Bowen administration. Ablo and stalwart
frcedmen were seated upon tho curbstone
of many of the streets diligently cutting the grass,
which sprouted between the cobble-stones in the
gutters with a common case-knife. Oh. no!
Bowen was not a friend of the contractors: he was
the able supporter of the laboring man, he was.
Having disposed of Bowen, the other patriotic in
dividuals willing aud anxious to draw $T,000 per.
annum as Commissioners may be grouped in one
lot. There arc some who arc making a still hunt
and whose names have not yet been brought to
the surface. The most prominent of the
candidates are Messrs. J. W. Thompson,
Major II. A. Hall, cx-Scnator West, of
Louisiana; ex-Congressman Rice, of Maine;
General W. Birney, William. B. Reed, Colonel E.
C. Dean, and M. M. Holland. It is asserted that a
chango will certainly bemadeby tho first proximo,
and the earnest hope of all interested in tho wel
fare of the Capital City is that some young and
vigorous man, who has a mind sufficiently com
prehennivc to grasp the grand possibilities of
Washington's future, may be eppointed. This Dis
trict is of too much importance to allow its princi
pal offices to be rilled by decayed politicians whom
tho Executive may desire to reward for services
rendered in their early manhood before tho flood.
"STRANGE AND QUEER."
TYhat is Said ofSome or the Statements
George H. Bethard sends The Repcbli
cas? the following : " I notice in yesterday's Repub
lican an article by somebody putting into an ar
gumentive shape the historical references to Christ,
and repudiating all of them as spurious. Said
writer makes some very strange aud queer state
ments. He fixes the date of Christ's crucifixion be
tween the years 27 A. D. and 33 A. D., and then
makes the statement that the Jews crucified no
body on the Passover, nor on Friday, and that
there could have been no full moon in cither of
those years at the time it is said Christ was cruci
fied. This article of tho gentleman, or lady, is of
no interest to me, except that I wish in a word to
show the fallacy of all such exegetical reasoning.
Letmcsaythat tho strong probability is that Christ
NEARLY FIFTY YEARS OLD
at the time of his execution on the cross. Tho
Jews did not crucify Christ, but the Roman regi
ment, composed of German'soldiers. They cared
very little for the Passover or Friday or any other
day. As to the historical references to Christ, it is
well known by all scholars that Josephus-is un
reliable from beginning to end, and that all aucicnt
histories have been worked over, not only in tho
case of Christ, but in all other matters. It is
known that Dionysius, in the fourth century, un
dertook to find out when Christ was born and
missed the date by at least four years. He placed
the day of his birth on tho 25th day of December.
It is known that no flesh knows upon what day of
any month Christ was born. An archbishop
wanted to know how long the world had been cre
ated, so he
TOOK THE OLD TESTAJIENT
and figured up the national records of the Jesus
and found that God made the universe about six
thousand years ago, right in the face of tho first
Ycrso of Genesis ' In the beginning God created
the heaven and the earth.' That might have
been six million years ago, instead of six thousand.
All scholars know that all history, especially an
cient, is terribly mixed up, and the foolish for
geries and interpolations of bigots who thought
they were lying for God's service have all been
detected; but all these silly follies and crimes of
bigots must not be thrown at the cross, and it is
outrageous to make Christ responsible for these

Payne and Barbe.
Special to Thb Kkpudlicak.
Alexandria, Va., June 16. In my dis
patch last night I could only give you the brief
fact that Mr. Louis E. Payne, formerly clerk of the
County Court, had been shot by Edmund Burke,
the Commonwealth attorney for tho county of
Alexandria, in the Tontine restaurant. The affair
caused intense excitement, and has been the prin
cipal topic of conversation to-day. Both parties
are well known, have been actively en
gaged in local and State politics, and each has
a large circle of friends. There is a history con
nected with tho shooting that has not yet been
published, tho facts of which I have
known for some time. It is stated that
ono night last rr.ary. as Pnyne was
ncaring his home after a trip into the country
to attend a political meeting, ho saw Burko come
from the door and walk rapidly away. Upon en
tering the house Payne found his wife in such a
condition as to leave no doubt on his mind that
she had been unfaithful to her marriage vows,
and or course Burke was the suspected party of the
second part. Payne has not since lived
with his wife, who has, since their separation, re
sided with her mothor iu this city. Believing that
Burke had seduced his wife, it is natural that Payne
should have felt extremely bitter toward him, and
whenever he was under the influence of liquor
he would threaten to take Burke's life.
These threats he has frequeully made lately,
and Burke, hearing of that fact, armed himself,
and when Taync entered the restaurant ho deter
mined to get the drop on him. and so fired. Payne
was not severely injured, tho ball entering his
right coat-sleeve at the wrist and p assiug out at the
elbow, grazing the arm on d inflicting only a slight
flesh wound, amounting to nothing more serious
than an abrasion. There is another side to the
story, which is to the effect that Payne was in
the habit of frequently getting grossly
intoxicated, and, while in that condition, abusing
and ill-treating his wife, and that she was com
pelled to leave him on that account. Her fricnd3
stoutly maintain her innocence, and assert that
Payne's charges of her infidelity are wholly
unfounded. I give you both versions as
items of news gathered from tho gossips,
resulting from tho unfortunate occurrence of last
night. This afternoon Piiyno was put under bonds
by Justice Thompson in the sum of S500, with
General Lomax as surety, to keep the peace for
ono year. Burko waived an examination, and
was committed to jail to answer an indictment at
the next grand jury term of the Corporation Court.
He was subsequently taken before Judge A. W.
Chilton on a writ of habeas corpus, and was ad
mitted to bail in tho sum of S500, with C. II. Smith,
R. T. Lucas, John T. Hammond, and Robert Bal
lcnger as sureties. Mr. A. W. Armstrong appeared
for Mr. Burke and Mr. S. G. Brent for the Com
monwealth. GEORGE'S CREEK CROSSING.
