OUR DAILY BREAP.
A beggar stopped at a rich man's door?
'''I'm houBoie?, and friendless, faint and poor."
Said the tattered boy, as tho tear-drop rolled
Down his thin check, blanched with want and
"Oh, give mo a crust Atom your board to-day,
To help tho starving on his way 1"
"Not a crust nor a crum," the rich man said j
"Be off, and work for your daily bread."
The rich-man went to the parish church,
Ilia faco grew gravo as ho trod tho porch,
And the thronging poor, tho untaught mass,
Drew back to let the rich man pass.
The service began, the choral hymn
Arose, and Dwelled through tho aisles dim;
Then the rieh man knelt, and the words lie said
Wero "Grvn: ub this day our daily drcad I"

is the Pasis of all others, and there

plutUmrlt ibtltrr on tiiu "?uhny South"
from Mr. M. L. Baldwin, of our County.
I@u "We have beert promised an ar

The American Farmers' Advocate.
Published at Jackson, Tenn., the pio
ncer paper in tho inauguration of the
great farmers' movement and specially
devoted to the great subject of co-opera
tion among the tillers of the soil should
bo on every farmers' table. It is a very
largo and well filled pape. Single, it is
81 per year, or in clubs of four or more,
50 cents each. We will furnish it to all
new subscribers with the Times at 82.50
During tho last six years the farmers
of this county (I don't mean those who
take no pride in their avocation?who
cannot be coaxed or kicked into improv
ing themselves or bettering their con
dition, nor do I mean those who have
reached the climax of perfection in Ag
ricultural science, and are too wise to
learn anything further) have made con
siderable progress in agricultural im
provements. They are cutting loose
from the old notion of "going to null
with corn in one end of the sack and
stones in the other end to balance, be
cause their fathers did so before them."
They are quitting tho two inch system
of skimming their land, and have gone
into deep and enrly breaking up, and
shallow and clean aller culture. They
arc la}'ing aside the old-fashioned horse
killing shovel plough and buzzard wing
sweeps, and are using improved, light
draf:, lnbor-saving implements, such as
the Brinly and Watt, one and two-horse
ploughs ; the eubseiier, and various pat
ters of light-running sweeps, cutting from
fifteen to thirty inch furrows. With the
Dow'Eaw and other cotton-planting ma
chines, a band and horso plants five acres
per day and docs it well. Then there is
the batchelor and other corn planting
machines, with which one hand with a
horse can ojicn, drop and cover from ten
to twelve ncres of corn or peas per day.
A hand can now do as much work as
could be dono by two or three, eight or
ten yean ago. They arc now making
from six to twelvo hundred pounds of
seed cotton por acre, and from twenty to
thirty bushels of corn, instead of, as for
merly, two or throo hundred pounds of
seed cotton, and from six to eight bush
els of corn. They have learned to feed
their lands bountifully, and they find it
pays them back "an hundred fold."
Now, Mr. Editor, this is certainly pro
gress in that department of husbandry.
Cannot something bo done to improve
our stock of cattle?
Perhaps in a future iss?o of your paper,
some crude suggestions may be made on
the cattle question by a
[From the Southern Cultivator.
I want to say more about working out
cotton into yarn and cloth after making
tho great staple. Thero is one thing cer
tain, we arc all in for a big crop this
year. Judging from the largo quantities
of Guano that arc said to be going over
lands and sen to all parts of tho South,
the great demands for labor, mules, and
in fact a demand for everything that is
necessary for tho production of cotton.
All tbeso things go to show that the
planters are going to try to get all of the
"Golden Eggs" at once, so that they
won't have to watch tho "Old Goose"
Well 1 with the big crop what must we
expect? Low prices for cotton, high
prices for provisions, and last but not
least, the abuse of the Northern Manu
facturers becauso our cotton has sonic
trash and saud, which under tho present
circumstances, (I mean such labor as wo
have to get it out) is unavoidable.
Rather stvange when the crop is short
we don't hea-i of theso things ; the great
mistake is in raising large crops unless
wo would manufacture ihe greater por
tion of the crop ourselves, and I say em
phatically, wo can?and the next crop at
Farmern and merchants can form com
panies and erect factories, and work the
staple up that is raised in the country,
and thin can bo donowith a small amount
of money from each person, and more
over, it will give work to tho poor women
and children who are not able to work
out in the fields.
Let me beg you to bring this subject
before the Southern people as strongly as
yon can?when brought about, it will
surely bring wealth to us. Without it I
can sec very little hope for tho rising
generations of tho South.
The Yankees see these things, and al
ready you hear of factories going up in
different parts of the South. Co-opera
tion is easy enough with us now, after
they get here it won't be so easy. The
manufacturing interest, is the moneyed
interest. Money is power.

lias stiff soil, and will use plenty of lime
