A OlOUY FOR i'EOPLK WTO WANT MOKE LAND.
I WhW? a man and ho lived in Jones?
Which Jones is a county of red hills and
And he' lived pretty much by getting of loans,
And hi-.f nuil c.j wore nothing but skin and bones,
Andmkliogs ?were flat as his corn-bread ponea
'?iiiV he had 'bout a thousand acres of land.
Thta man?and his name vras also Jones-?
He swore that he'd leave them old red hills
For he couldn't make nothing but yellowish
And1 little of that, for his fences wero rotten,
And what littlocotton he had, that was boughten
And ho couldn't get a living from the land.
And the longer he swore tho madder he got,
And ho rose and lie walked to the stable Tot,
And ho halloed to Tom to come there and hitch
For. to cmigrato somewhero where the land
Was rich/ ?
And1 t'6'quit raising cockburne, thistles, and
And waUlng their time on barren land.
So bim and Tom they hitched up tho mules,
Protesting that folks were mighty big fools
That 'ud stay in Georgia their lifetime out,
Ju?t scratching a living when all of them
Get places in Texas where cotton would sprout
By the time you could plant in the land.
And ho drove by a house where a man named
Was living not far from the edge of the town,
And he bantered Brown for to buy his place,
And said that seeing money was skacc,
Arid seeing that sheriffs were hard to face,
Two dollars an acre would get the land.
They closed at a dollar and fifty cents,
And Jones he bought him a wagon and tents,
And loaded his corn, and his women, and
And moved to Texas; which it took
His entire pile, with the best of luck.
To get there .and get him a little land.
But Brown moved out on the old Jones' farm.
And he rolled up his breeches aud bared his
And he picked all the rocks from off 'n the
And he rooted it up and ploughed it down,
And he sewed his corn and wheat in the land.
Five years glid by and Brown one day
(Who got so fat that he wouldn't weigh)
Was sitting down, sorter lazily,
To the' bulliest dinner you ever see,
When one of the children jumped on his knee
And sayea 'yan's Jones which you bought
And there was Jones, standing out at the fence,
And he'hadn't no wagon nor mules nor tents
For he hatf left Texas a foot, and come
To Georgin to see if he couldn't get some
Employment and he was looking as hum
Blc as if he had never owned any land.
But Brown he asked him in, and he sot
Him down to his victuals smoking hot,
And when he had filled himself and more,
Brown looked at him sharp, and swore
That" whether men's land was rich or poor,
There was more in the man than there was
in the land."

??~ The crops of the County are re
port to bo at least two weeks later than
last year. The corn crop will probably
be short?the recent long rainy spell
causing a sappy growth, which will suffer
under the rays of a July sun. In many
places, it is "firing," and will need sea
sonable showers to counteract the effects
of the present hot weather. Cctton is
growing finely, but the grass has been
subdued on very few farms, and the stand
has been badly injured in the combat
with General Green.
USa, Wo welcome our correspondent
"Observer" to our columns, and hope to
hear again from him.
What is Agriculture ??We pre
sent a spicy answer to the above question
from "Respondent." He has not cover
ed tho whole ground, through, and this
being a most important matter, tvo have
determined (though we can ill afford it)
to make tho following offer: For the
beat article onthe subject "Wbat'.is Ag
riculture?" we will give to the writer
the first large watermelon which is pre
sented to the Agricultural Editor of this
paper. s t
Mr. Editor:?I am continually hear
ing old Farmers discoursing plans for
the extinction of the Mole, believing as
many do that it feeds upon and diptroys
their corn. There never was a greater
mistake. Moles do not eat grain of any
kind. They live upon worms, slugs and
other insects. In destroying the mole,
you get rid of your best friend. It is true
that occasionally the mole in its search
for worms l'?ns so near the young corn
as to uplift it and thereby expose the
root so that the plant dies, hut from close
observation I am satisfied that he saves
a thousand plants from tho worms where
he injures one.
It, is said by Naturalist? that its vorac
ity is great and that it soon perisha if its
food be scarce, or wanting, so wo may
infer that where there arc many moles
worms arc plentiful and we should not
destroy our friends. "Wo may give you
something on Fro^s at another time.
* Agriculture Explained.
Mr. Editor:?Agriculture in its
modern and most restricted sense implies
the right of the agriculturalist to go io
town at-8 A. M. and return at 5 P. M.
provided always ho does not laKe more
than twelve drinks in the meantime.
Agriculture covers a multitude of
drinks; corn, rye, old peach, apple,
grape, sorghum, &c, all arc included in
the list. Agriculture being the basis of
all other pursuits, agricultural drinks
are tho basts drinks of agriculturalists,
except where one drinks water, which he
seldom does, save by variety. Then too,
agricultural drinks arc so lubricating.?
By them agriculture is made easy, Af
ter an agriculturalist has swallowed 80?
Fahrenheit of old corn or a blood red heat
of apple jack he can put the learned J.
F. W. Johnson, in umbrage on thesubject
of agriculture. He can persuade a sterile
old field up to a bale to the acre and not
half try, make his corn shoot right and
lett, has the best horse, dog and gun and
wife (I ain't got any of the latter ) of any
man in the county. And if his wife (I
ain't got ony) docs have to stay at home,
blow* the horn at noon, run the chickens
through the dilapidated fence and per
form divers other little agricultural du
ties, what difference docs it make, so
long as her husband drinks agricultural
ly, talks agriculturally, owns an agricul
tural horse, dog, gun and wife. Ain't
his calling agriculture, and aint he got a
right to do anything which pertains to
it? It is high time agriculturists should
assert their rights and quit going to-places
where they have no business.
