Wo suggest the above heading as per
haps the most important subject, which
the Patrons of Husbandry in our County,
can tako'hold of. There are many farms
in Orangeburg County, upon which
there is uotn sijigjc!l|ibprer, owing to the
passion of tbetfreedmen for owning or
renting land?and this state of things is
becoming more serious each yenr.
Immigration is the best (and only)
remedy for this state of thing:-, and we
feel sure that the matter has only to be
discussed at the monthly meeting of the
Granges, to convince every thinking fur
mer"~~Tti3 a most remarkable thing that
just as wo have reached (politically)
what appears to us the "bottom," immi
grants should, for the first time, appear
anxious to settle among us, and solve our
difficulties. Patrons, if there is anything
in these suggestions, (and it is desired to
do anything this year) remember the time
is short?every day is important!
For information, write to the Editor
of the Charleston "Zeitung" Mr. F.
Do a lings with Workmen.
One of the greatest growing evils (in
this ago when their uunio is legion) with
fanners of Illinois have to contend, is
the very gouernl practice of our employes
to obtain the highest posible wages and
perform the least amount of work. For
one, I am trying a remedy, which, if|
generally practiced, would, in my opin
ion, improve the class of help referred to.
An uncle in Onondago Co., N. Y..
many years since, hud two men hired for
the season, who began to idle away much
of their time as baying was about to cera
mence, evedently with the intention of|
getting discharged, thbat they might ob
tain higher wages elsewhere.
As there was a scarcity of men out of
employment., my uuclo felt under the
necesity of keeping those be bad and
make the best he could of it. F. G,
Jcwett, afterwards Judge of the Court of
Appeals of the State, was counsellor, and
advised to keep an account ns near as
possible, each day; of the lack in doing a
fair day's work, and in .settlement to de
duct proportinnlly from the wages agreed
on* His recomendation was followed: of
course the employes "breathed forth
tbreaU-nings," and that was all. We
ought at oucc to adopt this remedy here.
Inr marketing our products, none of us
would claim full pay, if weight or measure
was found to be short; no one would call
in question our obligation to correct mis
takes of this kind: and if men hire to
work for a given price, the fact is as fully
implied that they are to perform faithful
work, ns to receive a given sum of good
money.., Genera! attention to this subject
by farmers' clubs and granges, followed
with individual action, would, in my
opinion', vastly improve the quality of
help in one year?in fact it seems that
very shortly it would be here ns in
Europe, men would stand on their merits,
and be required, on getting a situation, to
produce recomendation for faithfulness
from previous employer?a practice
which' 1ms several good features to com
mend it, and is free from any objections.

From a Farm Kit's Son.?I wish you
knew bow much I have enjoyed the pc
rusnl of your paper; also what a sou reo
of troublo its teachings have been to me
,.Puradoxical ns this may seem, it is even
bo. Much lias been .said and written
about sons remaining on the farm, but
the half has never been told concerning
trials: neither can it be by those who have
never?experienced them. When parents
never read concerning their business, and
call ali that is printed on agriculture
"book farming" and "nonsence," and re
fuse to be convinced, what, is one to do?
Also, When neighbors spend their time in
playing enrds, dancing and backbiting
each other, instead of trying to inform
themselves upon the progress made in
their own calling, and upon tho great
questions of the day, it is hard for one
who does not do these things, to get along
among them, a.
Paris Green for tho Cotton Worm.
J. R. Maxwell of Alabama reports to
the Southern Farmer that ho has been
"successful in tho use of Paris green on the
cotton worm. I had one hundred acres
of cotton ou swamp land that would have
been ruined, but on their first appearance
I commenced on them. I put eight
hands on mules, with two-gallon watering
pots and ten more bauds and two wagons
engaged in keeping them supplied with
water and poison, and went over my cot
ton twice; up one side of a row and down
the other, going thus twice to each row.
Poison, labor and all cost me about three
hundred dollars. It has saved me at the
vesy least, twenty bales of cotton. I used
the poison by putting to each caufull of
water half a tabiespoouful of poison and
three tablespoons of Hour; stirring it well.
I tried it first without Hour, but every
shower would wash all the poison oil'."
Another Alabama farmer writes to the
Southern Cultivator, that he used it on
fifty acres at a cost for the poison of G8
cents' per acre. Ho sifted it upon the
plants from a sifter on the end of a long
handle." He found the best time to be
when dew was ou tho plants. He waited
until the leaves were considerably per
forated, and yet his crop was estimated
by experts to he injured only ten percent.
In tho Rural Carolinian for December^
\V. P. Reese, Selma Ala., in auswar to
several questions, &a}s that Paris green
kills ih2 cotton worm invariably, when
properly applied. Furthermore he says
it pays twenty limes over to use the poi
son for this purpose; that it does not in
jure the cotton plant, nor is its use neccs*
rarily dangerous to the person useing it.
The cotton worm bus long been a
scourge to southern planters and if Paris
green will destroy the worm when pro
perly applied, as it docs the Colorado po
tato beetle, it is to be hoped that southern
papers will publish the remedy far and
wide; thus rendering more certain one of
the staple crops of the United States.
A student at Princeton believes in "a
place for every thing and every thing in
its place;" so he nailed his slippers to the
wall about four feet up, and all he has to
do at evening is to wheel his easy chair in
position and insert his feet therein.
Califonia agriculturists are going large
ly into ginger. They haven't got much
beyond the first syllable yet, but hope to
do so when their plants germinate.
A man advertises for a competent per
son to undertake the suloo^a new medi
cine, and adds that "it will prove highly
lucrative to the undertaker."
