A FEW WORDS TO FARMERS.
, Ask many a farmer how long he can
ct efficient service out of a mule with
out feeding him, and he will probably
Tiew the question as an offensive re-!
ficctiofPupon his good sense; ask him
how long he expects his over-worked
lands to yield good crops without
cither food or rest, and you open up an
entirely new subject for reflection.
f And yet both questions are to the
; point, and a little reflection must satis
fy any sensible man that food is as
essential to growing crops as to labor
ing animals. We all know, without
reasoning upon the subject, that an
abundant snpply of the products of
the soil willl give health and strength
to the animal, but many seem not to
know that he thrives and fattens on
the life-blood of the soil that ele
ments which enter into the develop
ment of the plant are assimilated to
to the bone and muscle of the ani
mal. And hence it is that the waste
matter of stables and barn-yards con
tribute so materially to fertilizing the
soil to which they are returned it is a
simple restoration to the field of the
elements first consumed by the crop,
then absorbed by the animals that feed
upon it, and by them thrown off in
the form of waste matter.
. The farmer may reply to this, that
the manure he can save will go but a
little way towards fertilizing the large
area which he cultivates. This may
be true, but in answer to his objection,
we beg leave to suggest that the plant
food is not exhausted from the poorest
of his fields; that beneath the shallow
surface which ho has been stirring,
year after year, there lies a large sup
ply awaiting only a subsoil plow to
reach and bring into active play. The
fibrous roots which creep along a bar
ren surface, in search of food, are not
strong enough to jicnetrate the hard
pan, created by years of superficial
plowing, and if they were, the food
thus buried beyond the reach of sun
and air and rain is wholly unfitted for
absorption until subjected to those
iigencics by which food can be prepared
to be taken up by the almost invisible
roots which couvey nutriment to the
growing plant, By deep plowing not
only is plant food brought within reach
of the surface roots, but through the
agency of light and air it is disintegrat
ed, end the carbonic acid which de
scends with every shower, dissolves it,
when it is ready to be absorbed by the
diminutive feeders thrown out from
the growing stem.
But, the fact that deep plowing
brings up a supply of plant food, hith
erto out of reach, is not the only ar
gument in favor of subsoil prepara
tion. Moisture is as indispensable to
vegetable growth as lightand heat, and
to provide that moisture, in case of
drought, nothing is so efficient as a
deep preparation. It enables the rain
to sink deep below the surface and the
looseness of the soil acts as a preven
tive f the rapid evaporation inci
dent to compact ground. Besides,
every rain brings down with it more or
less ammonia, an indispensable cle
ment of plant food, in addition to the
carbonic acid which dissolves the sili
cates and phosphate, and, by liquify
ing, fits them to be taken up by the
delicate roots always in reach of them.
The farmer who adopts the system
of deep cultivation will find himself
materially aided, in his efforts to im
prove his soil, by the hand of nature,
because thus prepared, light, heat, air
and water can freely enter, each con
. tributing its fertilizing influence, but
without such preparation, these con
tributions arc rejected by an imper
vious surface, the crops fail, the soil
bd'omes poorer and the unenlightened
firmer attributes his want of hucccss
to the natural sterility of his fields
and the unpropitions character of the
seasons. Feed your lands, or they will
not iced you is the plain English of
all we would say on the subject, and
whilst we have indicated deep plowing
as a very effective .ncaus of rccuierat
ing exhausted lands, we would, by no
means, intimate that other means
should be neglected such as manur
ing freely, rotation of crops, raising
grass, turning under rye, peas uud
other greeu crops, seeded for that pur
pose and, last, though not least, a fixed
determination to cultivate no larger
surface than can be well prepared,
well manured and tilled in the most ap
proved style. The time has come wheu
farmers must calculate profits rather
than gross proceeds. The contest is
between the price of labor and the
nett proceeds of the farm, and it is
time that the farmers were ascertain
ing whether a fair proGt on ten acres
is not better than no profit on one hun
dred acres Labor on poor laud costs
as much as labor on rich land, the crea
in cultivation being the same. Then
-v if fifty acres of well fed bind will yield
is much as one hundred, poorly fed,
tH'.ere is a saving of one half the labor
required for the cultivation of the lat
ter, and a doubling of the yield of the
former, then the double yield and the
half cost of labor furnish tfic data
. upon which the farmer can calculate
his profits. When he learns that en
riching his land will save labor, in
crease the yield and bis profits, he will
have le imed the first lesson iu pro
gressive prosperity, and each succeed
ing year will illustrate the wisdom of
feeding his bind as well as his mules,
if he would make both efficient as
well as profitable. Poor land and
hired labor never did, aud never
will pav. and the sooner farmers re
cognize this f ict, the better f-r them
wives and for the general prosjienty f
ail .lojtcuddit upon agriculture the
life-blood of art, science, commerce
TUK company, with a capital of 20,
()i,tK)(t. that is to buy up the Telegraph
lines, with power to extend them iu
deSnittfly, with stations at every post
- office, is, ofcourse, a government ring.
It is a ruse, by which the government
is to secure all the power and patron
age to be derived, from such a scheme
without seeming to be a party to the
villainy. The reasoning is that the
Jew patriots iu the North, will not be
-alarmed for the fate of the govern
ment, by a seemingly private enter
prise and tbat a despotism can be
erected before the people are aware of
it. Such precaution u unnecessary;
lhe government is already absolute,
and all that is needed is the Autocrat's
uoclaiuation to that effect.
THE SE1T TORE TBIBCTfE. -
However the question of who is to
be editor of the New Tort Tribune
may be 6Cttled, one thing is certain, it
will never, under the editorial control
of any man, have that unbounded in
fluence which hitherto it has wielded
over the public mind iu America, when
it was the embodiment cf Greeley's
genius. The elder Bennett passed
away, but not until his son had caught
his spirit and learned his plans and
purposes- The mantle of the founder
of the Herald was not merely taken up
by the son, after the father's death, but
even while living, the father had hon
ored his successor with a seat by his
side on the editorial throne which he
had established. Greeley left a king
dom in the Tribune which he had
founded, but he left no heir apparent
And whoever may undertake the work
of editing the Tribune will find it a
work of great difficulty. Mr. Gree
ley's name had a magical power over
the millions who n ad his paper. The
story of his triumph over poverty and
discouragements, the fact that he was
a self-made man, caused the people
to regard him as one speaking with
The Independents and their tools
who elected, from Tennessee, seven
Radical to three Democratic members
of Congress, are so satisfied with the
glorious and patriotic achievement,
that they seem disposed to enjoy their
victory, in self-satisfied retirement from
political turmoil. We don't hear of
one of them demanding of the Radi
cal administration the reward due
their services to the Radical cause.
They certainly deserve credit for their
modesty, if not for their political wis
dom. Mayuard ought to know what
their leaders want and not wait for
them to blush and then ask. It may
be, however, that Radicalism, as well
as Conservatism, distrusts the purity
of their motives, and is slow to reward
party treason, as a dangerous experi
ment nothing having transpired to
show whether the Independent lead
ers are Liberal Republicans, or mere
guerillas from every party. They are
certainly candidates for crumbs from
some party table, which ever supplies
them, can fix their ttafus, at least so
long as the crumbs last. We do not
suppose that the big Injun of the
tribe would be satisfied with a Post
mastcrhip, as he has had his measure
taken for a seat in the Senate to be
followed by a second Presidential
term a position he will find it difficult
to reach in the absence of a Booth.

This institution for the education of
young men was founded about the
year 1852 by the Masonic fraternity.
It was named in honor of Prof. "Wm.
M. Stewart, who devised liberal things
for it, and then served it as professor
and president for a number of years,
and always without remuneration.
Owing to some divisiong among the
original founders the institution was
not as successful as was anticipated, !
it was therefore sold to certain liberal
gentleman of the city who furnished
the money and took the titles in the
name of the Presbyterian church.
At the reorganization Dr. McMullen
of hallowed memory became the presi
dent and drew around him a compe
tent corps of teachers. This was about
1S5C. He secured a subscription to
the permanent endowment fund of
He and his corps were achieving an
initial success when the war came on
and blighted all their prospects. The
citizens remember the desolations of
the war, the utter dismantling of the
builings, destruction of enclosures, the
scattering of the libraries, the remov
al of apparatus and cabinets with
which the institution had been hand
somely provided by the liberality of
Prof. Stewart Nothing was left but
the bare walls and part of the floors.
Matters were in this condition for two
or three years after the war. Then
the buildings were partially repaired
and school was conducted in the build
ing by Br. Wardlaw, afterward by
Prof. D. JI. Quarles. About three
years ago the buildings were put in
thorough repair, at an expense of
some $ 6,000, for which we are indebt
ed to the generous aid of many friends
out of Clarksville as well as in it In
J uly, 1870, the Board of Trustees se
cured the services of Rev. J. B.
Shearer, D. D., as president and or
ganized the Faculty. About $40,000
of the original endowment remains,
yielding G per cent. This, and the
patronage of the institution and the
liberality of intelligent friends have
secured the present cheering success
of the institution. The building is
now furnished with scats, desks, black
boards philosophical and chemical ap
paratus and other appliances of suc
The literary societies, the Stewart
and the Washington Irving, are full of
generous rivalry and are beginning to
fit up their halls, and are rapidly ga th
ing libraries in the place of those lost
by the war. The people here will re
member the signal success of their
orators at their anniversary in June
last. Visitors from abroad stated free
ly that they never heard their efforts
surpassed on such occasions and sel
dom equalled. We anticipate for
them a high career of usefulness and
success. If any of our citizens in
looking over their libraries happen to
find a volume marked with the name
of cither society, they will know where
to send it. And many of our . people
may have volumes they can spare from
their own shelves for the libraries of
the societies. They are frequently
receiving just such favors.
There is a movement on foot for con
centrating the Presbyterian church in
the South-west on one school, and if
the efforts succeeds, it will be the
planting of a noblo institution. Many
of those who seem best informed on
the subject expect this concentration
will be effected on the nucleus of this
institution. If this can be accom
plished it will be of great value to
Clarksville in every point of view.
Other places will, no doubt, bid high
for the location of such a school ; but
there is no reason why Clarksville,
with the nucleus of her present school
and her known liberality, may not
outstrip them all. As for suitableness
of location in all respects, those who
know anything of our city, do not need
a siug'e word of endorsement from
The number of studeuts the first
year reached 100, and last year 124, of
whom about one half were from
abroad. And the reputation of the
institution is rapidly increasing. This
is just as it ought to be when we con
sider the material out of which the
faculty is composed, and the method of
instruction adopted by the institution.
The faculty consists of six men;
of whom five arc young and active
men of indomitable perseverance and
energy. The honored name of Prof.
Wm. M. Stewart is retained as pio
fessor emeritus, but the infirmities of
age rreclude his doing more than to
aid his colleagues with his counsel.
There is no man in our community who
is more highly esteemed for his vir
tues, and honored for his worth, than
this distinguished professor and nat
uralist. May he yet live long to bless
The other gentlemen of the facul
ty arc between the ages of and 40,
in the very vigor and prime of mature
manhood. They are vigorous, earnest
educators, who have made teaching
their profession, and whose ambition
is to place it in the very front rank of
the learned professions. cjnecd not
say that they are succeeding as they
justly deserve. Give us a born teach
er, proud of his calling, a teacher by
choice, devoted to his work, polite,
cultivated, refined and genial withal, a
man who feels that he is doing work
for time and eternity both, that he
molds and fashions the man, and
whose noblest ambition is to leave the
impress of a high intellectual and moral
culture, if not of true greatness, on
tho minds and hearts of the pupil.
Such are the men who compose the
faculty of Stewart College ; and it will
not be their fault if they do not suc
ceed in their highest aspirations.
And they are succeeding. For no man,
who sees the students passing along
our streets and marks their never fail
ing modesty and courtesy coupled with
a genuine manliness, can fail to un
derstand thr.t intellectually and moral

With the exception of one who was
educated at Columbia, South Carolina,
in the davs of her glory, tho faculty
were all educated at the University of
Va. 1 wo ot them carried ol the Jugn

of them are counted among her best
graduates. Several of them have been
educated at other institutions besides,
which is of great value to them in
avoiding a blind imitation of any one

watch word is thorough instruction
and a high standard. They advertise
no royal road to knowledge, noquackery
of learning made easy, no patent nos

they prefer honest, earnest work for
teacher and pupil. And what is bet

At some future time we will call the
attention of our readers to the person

and Persians. They propose to make
merit the criterion of success both for

CLARKSVILLE TOBACCO MARKET.
As the weather is no w suitable for hand
ling tobacco, we may expect at an early
day, largely increased sales and an active
market. We notice thearrival of two for
eign buyers during the past week, who ad
ded to those already here, make our board
unusually large. This intermixture of
foreign buyers, we like to see. Where
there are but few bidders, aud they Inti
mate, and in daily intercourse, it is an ea.y
matter to form rings and keep down prices;
butif the board is full and is composed of
men who are strangers to each other, there
is no danger of such combinations; and
for this reason, it would be vastly to the
interest of the planters. If the tobacco
known as "Clarksville," could be concen
trated and sold at one point If this could
be done, the buyers and orders would all
come together, and the number of bidders
be doubled on every hogshead.
We cannot bUme the citizens of other
towns for trying to build up home mar
kets, it is to their interest to do so, but
whilst they are promoting their own inter
ests, they are certainly damaging the plan
ters. Clarksville is the oldest and best es
tablished market in the West, and is better
known in Europe than any other off the
seaboard. If the people will bear this in
mind and consult their Interest, our sales
this season, will be largely increased.
