'ThcroVa beautilul song on the slumbrotw air,
That drift a through the valley of dreams;
It comes from a clime where the roses are,
And a tuneful heart and bright brown hair
Thai waves in the morning bean?.
Soft eyes of azure and eyes of brown,
And snow-white foreheads are there;
A glimmering cross and a "glittering crown.
A t homey bed and a couch of down,
.\o st hop c-3 and lea Act u of prayer.
A breath of spring in the breezy woods,
Sweet woifa from the quivering pipes?
Sine violet eyes beneath green hoods,
A bubble of brooklets, a scent of buds,
' Bird warbles and clambering vines.
A-rosy wreath and a dimpled hand,
A Hng and a plighted jrow?
Three, golden links of a broken band,
A tiny track on the snow?white sand,
A tear and a sinless prow
There's a tincturo of grief In the beautiful song,
That sobs on the slumbrous air;
And loneliness fell in the festive throng,
JSinks down on the soul as if trembling along,
From tho clime were the roses were.
"We heard it first at the dawn of day,
And it mingled with matin chimes;
But years have distanced tho beautiful lay,
And its melody floateth from far away.
And we call it now. "Old Times."

Mr. Editor :?In the Times of tho ]
J8thofMay, your correspondent "B*F.
W." says: "all efforts made to grow
?lover or foreign grasses has been a fail
ure in this county, and in the issue of the
15th, "Edisto says: "Espeiionce teaches
4t dear school and none hut fools will
leam therein'^?which I believe, for T\
have been taking lessons in that school
for many years. But to the olover, I
wanted to try it for myself, so I got a
few seed, Jast Bpring, and planted a few
yards square. Though I got the seed too
late for a fair trial, I now have some,
six and seven inches high; now if I can
make it on few yards square, I can on an
aore square, and will let you know in the
Fall how I come out with it. Mr. Edi
tor, we have been having a great deal of J
rain, and crops that have been worked
well are doing finely, but unfortunately
in some places the grass seems to be as
good or better than the cotton.
Are Manures Stimulants ?
Mr. Editor :?I don't deny that ma
nures furnish furnish food to the plant,
but they nlso stimulate tho roots and
force them into the soil, in search of other
food. This can be easily ascertained by
applying manure in bulk, twelve inches
from the plant, several inches deep ; and
when tho plant shows, by growth and
development that it is receiving good
benefits from the manure, dig down to
tho place, and you will find countless
numbers of roots diverging into the soil.
These roots are tho main feeders, and if
manures furnished food only, these roots
would not go from the food. You will
find comparatively very few coming to
the manure, but a great many going from
it. I have been forced to conclude that
?manures are stimulants, from experi
menting for tho purpose of asccrtaing
their relative value. I had a field 1 j
acres long, i acre in length, which was a
truck patch, and very rich; one-half acre
was level and good natural soil, the other
half acre was hill-side, with tho best of
soiled washed off. I planted cotton, ma
nured with cotton seed, stable manure,
and guano, and loft several rows unma
nured. I put down the manures with
Ay fingers, and put enough certainly.?
On the hill side, the guano doubled the
unmanurcd row, and the cotton seed and
-.?.-r-??- "; ?
stable manure- doubled the guano. On
the level part there \vas a very percepti
ble difference; the cotton seed and stable
Manure each producing one-fourth more
than the guano. In the truck patch there
was no difference between tho cotton seed
and stable manure and guano. There
was a considerable difference between
the three and the unmanured row. Now,
sir, what other conclusion ? could I come
to, than that the guano was a Btisttdan't
as good as cotton seed or stable manure,
but-did not furnish' the some amount of
food to the plant. In our commercial
manures you will find the stimulating
properties of manure abundant, hut do*
ficient in food. These manures stimu
late the roots of tho cotton, and they
soon take up tho lictle nourishment in
the soil, and rust is the consequence, be
fore the season is half out. I think I
have furnished proof enough; if not, lei
me know, and you shall have it
Mr. Editor :?I am due thanks te
your correspondent "F." Please tender
them to him for me, for tho valuable in
formation given on tho subject of plant
ing, cultivating and* curing long-forage
from corn?to me n very important item
in our revolutionized state of fanning,
and valuable to every progressive farmer
who reads and thinks.
If more of our farmers would come to
the front, and through your columns tell
"what they know about farming/' and
what they do not know?and ask for
im form at ion from their brother farmers,
it would bring out tho practice and expe
rience of our best cultivators of the soil,
and would be of great benefit to the
farming interest of the country. Wo
have all, as farmers, much to learn, and
there are but very few if any, from whom
we cannot glean some new thought or
idea, which if properly applied will aid
us in our avocation. At least, such is
the experience of
Receipt for Making Tea.?The most im
portant thing in browing a cup of tea consists
in having the water in the teakettle freshly
boiled, and one should never use that which
has been steaming and stewing for several
hours. So turn out all the water in your keUle
and fill it np with fresh, pure water; then boil
it up briskly, and, as soon as the steam appears,
turn a small quantity of water into the tea-pot,
and shake it about in it. Then pour it out, and
add 0*0 teaspoon ful of tea for each person
who will drink from the pot, and one teus
poonful for the pot?(this is the old rule 0}
our grandmothers.) Over this pour one large
coffeecup of boiling water, and for breakfast
tea let if boil exactly ten minutes; boil bard.
But for green and Japan teas, proceed as above,
and then place tho teapot on the back part of
the stove, or upon the elevated reservoir for
water, and let it deep from Ovo to eight minutes.
Tea made from freshly-boiled water, and
steeped in this manner, is an entirely different
beverage from that prepared in any other way
In water, when first boiled, there is always a
small amount of alkali, which seems to have a
peculiar effect in extracting the pleasant prop
erties of the tea; and I can tell, the instant 1
taste a cup of tea' whether the water has just
boiled or been boiling for even half an hour.
