Fruits in the Low Country.
It is a very common opinion that ours
is not a fruit county. But who docs not
remember, exquisitely flavored peaches
which he has seen raised on the pine
lands? Ah, yes! they were delicious! But
how shoon they lost their flavor and de
generated. Of course they did. What
ever is the object of artificial culture will
degenerate, unless man's vigilant, eye and
careful hand are ever at work to foster
?v' th'em. Without trouble, nothing good is
to-be had in this world. Nature shows
us what our soil can do; it, is our part to
see that she is assisted in her effors. A
century ago, when our fathers lived per
manently on their plantations; they
revelled in peaches, pears, plums, and
grapes. Occasionally even oranges wero
found; and we know that the olive will
grow on our soil. The fig, indeed canuot
bear transportation in its fresh state, but
so freely does it grow and bear, that I
have no doubt that the dried fig will some
day be one of the staple products of the
low country, Unhappily for us, all the
intelligence of our country, -under tho
fatal influence of our climate, has been
for the last eighty years so completely
devoted to cotton, that all other indus
tries were abandoned, and now that cot
ton has fnilad to support us, we cannot
get out of the old grooves, but wo go on
wasting our energies and impairing our I
intellects, in still treading over tho old
ground, making ouselves the willing
slaves of those who helped to ruiu us,and
turn a blind eye to the tempting gifts
which nature offers to our grasp.
A Good Fertilizer.
The Scientific American says farmers have
to pay a high price for an article, which' with
a little skill, they could make themselves dur
ing the winter months or on rainy days, when
they have little else to do,and gives a recipe by
farmers in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The for
mula presented below is, howevet, wanting?
except incidently, as recommended?in the
ingredient which is most apt to give trouble
and to cause injury in transportation and haul
ing?vie, oil of vitrol, or sulphuric acid?and
is doubtless a good one, if the article is applied
in sufficient quantities. The mixture is espec
ially recommended for potatoes and wheat by a
farmer who has tried it, and who says he has
used it with success on corn and other products;
It is as fellows: Take 1,000 pounds of good
mold, sieve and screen it to get the gravel out,
and make it as fine as possible; then spread on
a floor, add 100 pounds sulphate ammonia, 100
pounds common salt, and mix with a rake,
when thoroughly mixed, add 25 pounds of
pear] ash and 22 pounds sulphate of soda, mix
well; then add 400 pounds ground bone, 25
. pounds best Peruvian guano, and 150 pounds
ground plaster. Mix the whole thoroughly,
throw in a pile for forty-eight hours, and it is
fit for use. If it is to be used for potatoes in dis
tricts where the potato hugs are numerous, five
gallons sulphuric acid may ho Rpriiudcd over
the mass. Tho caution is added thnt the acid
must not be used in a confined place, as the
fumes are injurious to health, and that if it is
spilled on the floort water must be thrown on
it as the mixture generates great heal.
What the Farmer Must Know.?Ho
'should know Ins soil?that of each lot not only
should also know what grain and grasses
) each, j.
He^houid know when it is the time to
work them, whether they need summer fallow
He should know the condition in which, tho
ground must he when ploughed, so that it be
not too wet nor too dry.
He should know that some graini requires
earlier sowing than others, and what those
lie should know how to put them in.
lie should know that it will pay to
have inachincay to help hiui as well as mus
'??He-should ! mow about stock and manures
and the cultivation of tress and small fruits and
many4AUier things?in a word, he should know
what experienced, observing fanners know, to
be sure of success.

Steeping and Preparing Seeds before
^ This preparation,lately introduced to the Ag
ricultural world,api?ear from recent experiments
to surpass all that has ever been attempted in
that line. It not only contains all the elements
and fit food for the seed in its infant state, which
enables it to come up strong and vigorous, but
positively claim that no rust smut or blight can
exist where K is applied, and proving a certain
preventive against the Potato rot. It dissolves
readily, and forms a mucilage by wliicli any
material can he made to adhere to the seed.
Coal Tar being a very small portion of this valu
able compound to prcvenl tin- ravages of birds
and insects, but so united and prepared as to
form a dry powder, wliicli dissolves readily,onc
pound producing one and a half gallons, or
fifteen pounds of mucilage. Qn every farm there
are to be found in abundance val?ablo mate
rials for rolling seeds in before planting, which
should never he ncgle? t> ii. 'i In so are rich dry
black earth an.l wood a ir. ;. Or lime,and should
he mixed in proportions of one part of wood
ashes or lime, to three parts of earth. By tin;
aid of toe mucilage, much of this material can
he made to adhere to each s.cd, which never
fails to show good results. It has boon tried on
corn, rice, cotton, wheat, potatoes, peas and all
the cereals with marked efl'ect, none showing
any signs of rust, blight or fungus where it was
applied. Put up in one pound Packages at 80
cents per pound, which dissolves and form one
ami a half gallon of Mucilage, sufficient to roll
seed for one acre land. 000 Planters used it last
season with remarkable success.
Every Fanner and Planters should use it.
