Letter from Floridn.
Having received an invitation from |
the Hon. J. (J. Spear, the general inana- j
gerand president of-the Apopka Canal j
Co., to take a trip with him across the j
lake, and up the canal to where the !
dredge boat is at work, we accepted, j
and accompanied by four gentlemen, j
who for several days previous, had hueij |
in our midst admiring the beauties and i
advantages of this great South Apopka .
region, we drove over to the Judge's
beautiful home at Oakland, where we
,, were hospitably received and-cared for j
until i:jii i > i 11 it i Mil v hum ii i iiu.
In this connection we will say that
the Judge has just completed his largo
house, of eleven rooms, situated on :i
hill nearly surrounded tiy""a T?"r?a^itiful
oak forest, in (lie rear of the house,
sloping to thft banks of Lake John, the 1
oaks have been supplanted by orange j'
trees, showing the care thev have bad
in their unusual si/.e, thriving condition.
and in the rich .yield of golden (
fruit, which weighs them down.
At an early hour we breakfasted, and I
after a brisk walk of three-quarters ofj
a mile, to Spear's wharf, on Lake .A pop- j
kn, we boarded the steamer "Apopka"
ftnd had only a few minutes to wait he- ^
fore we were olF for the canal, at the
north end of the lake, coasting the (
v\um mium; mm duijpjnu^ at v i;umings
for orange freight. After leaving,
the first place of interest we saw was
,f the famous Burdette Island prove.
This grove, like many others on the
shores of Apopka, was made' by hudding
sweet oranges on the native wild 1
stocks, which wore found in great num- '
bers all though the hammock. Our '
first stop was at Lieu.t. Franklin's whjirf, '
from whicli point the hmd rises, with a
beautiful slope to quite' an eminence.
On this is situated his elegant mansard- *
ro >f mansion, surrounded by gigantic '
oaks, from whoso grand old -trunks and
liuihs, the ever beautiful southern grey
moss hangs in graceful clusters, sway- *
ins to the over gentle breeze from oft*
the lake. L*. Franklin teWs me that ^
his grove of twenty acres and more,
and from which he will ship this season
seven hundred* boxes ,i*f oranges. .
was only live years ago transplanted
from Cant. Minim's nursery. (This only
proves what trees can be mjldejt'o do
in a short time, with good attenti.on.)
Just across an arm of the lake, .from
Lt. Franklin's grove, is Mr. Kirk's place.
This is a very handsome grove just
coming into bearing. The- ownir last 1
season, planted two acres in string
beans, shipping in March and April to
northern markets. His net receipts
were about $1,100 and the whole crop
was made and marketed between. December
and April. Next is Mr. Stat
oil's grove, lying buck a short distance
from the lake. Then Mr. Stewart's
wharf, our next and last' stop, .du 'the
west shore, was the scene of busy action,
in loading oranges on our boat.
This grove, like all we had passed, was
in luxuriant bearing.
At last we entered the long heard of
Apopka canal, present ,terminus of oin
steamer. l''or live and a half n\iles.w.e
followed this Kauai in an air line course,
from Lake Apopka to its connection
with Lake Dora, then through Lake l)ora
to Lake lCustis, the head waters of
mu ucKiuwntiA river ; thus attordmg
when completed, through transportation,
by water from Lake Apopka to
Jacksonville, or by rail over th" T. 0.
& A. li. It., which crosses the canal one
mile from the present point of working
the dredge boat, which is toiling assiduously
under the skillful management
of Mr. Ilicks.
The entire length of the canal is frotn >
seven to seven and one-half miles, was
cut through the entire length, twenty
feet wide nnd fron. four to six feet
mood ; out alter the water ran down and
partly reclaimed the rich muck land, lying
on both sides of it, (a body of thirty-live
to f*?rty thousand acre*.) it,was
found to be both two shallow and narrow
to either afford transportation or reclaim
fully the land. So the dredge
beat was put to work on the Lake Dora
end, and cut the canal, for two miles,
thirty to thirty-five feet wide and nine
feet deep. This second out was also reHUtnod
on tho Apopka end and has
opened the canal for five and one-half,
miles, thns leaving to be completed one
an<) one-half miled, or one mile to the
Just now the work is necessarily very
rIow. as the dradge is working through
a-stiff elay and litne bed, and tho pro
gross is ejily eighteen to twenty yards a
day. Of this however, they have only
ahont two hundred yards more, when
again this rich muck bed commences, ; p
ami in this tlioy can go ahont nn<! hun- ]i
ilred yards a day. Thus, yon see, (he j pi
day of completion is not far oil*, and pi
when completed and this immense body , e
of land reclaimed, the writer ventures to j h
assert that there will be no richer body j.)
"r land in the United States ; or even | h
i..ore ; that there is enough rich muck h
in this ho'Iy, if dug to its depth, to for- ci
tilizo nearly all the pine land in the w
In the afternoon we returned to South | V
Apopka, where we hade farewell to ourjei
host and the crew, composed of Capt. j ai
A. A. Spear, engineer K. 0. Spear, and j it

lend our heartfelt thanks for their kind h

They ?:an'tget supplies, because no one
il. will advance them when the landlord

s- entitled to priority, even without re:o

?d staive. I guess, 01* emigrate. In the
