Tlic30 experiments with rice lands
nre on an ample scale, and will be
conducted to the end with care and
exactness. It' no accident intervenes
to thwart the development of their
legitimate results they must be of
great practical value to our planters
It is said that our rice planters
make now, under tho most favorable
circustnuces, only a new for an old
dollar, and if a storm, or n f reshet, or
a Fait river conies, or n break in the
1 >nnk occurs, they do not even this.
Now, Mr.Daniel Heywur I, of Savan- j
nab River, a practical, observant and
a successful planter, has told us that
the production of rice land may bo i
raided from forty to seventy bushels |
by fertilizing it vilh 'lie cow pea
under ordinary cultivation. Can any
iiii> conjecture wl til it may uttuiu to
?in laud after peas with I lie >sh cle
incut? There will prohabij be .some
licht on this material point from
Lam el Spriug next autumn.
Dr. J. 11. Rartou,of Rowesyille.
Ornugrhurg County, writes under
date of the 20:h of February: "1
cannot as yet give you any definite
result from any experiment I am
now making with the ash element.
In dune last I sowed broadcast on
eifti t acres five hundred pounds ash
element per acre, und peas sufficient
to give a thick htand. The peas grew
luxuriantly, and made a heavy crop
of vines. When matured I sowed
two bushels of ihc red oat, and turned
peas and oats ifder with a two-horse
plough. It guve a good stand, and
the oats nre now looking extremely
well. From present appearance they
will double my former crops.
"1 have not as yet made aiiy ex
periment with the vetch, but have a
few plants, and intend getting seed
and sowing the coming autumn.
"I shall try ash clement and peas
in June, let the peas mature and die
on ihe land, and plant cotton on same
land in the spring of 1879. I shall
be pleased to give you the result of
any experiment I may make with the
ash (dement, peas, A.c., etc."
Mr. D. Lynch Pringle writes from
Ivtiihlield, Georgetown outhclOih
February : "In June last I prepared
two acres, as follows : Ou one simply
sowed two bushels of cow pe:is; ou the
Other I applied four hundred pounds
of the ash (dement and then sowed
the peas. The difference was very
marked between the two acres. The
one on which I applied the ash ele
ment producing the most luxuriant
crop of peas I have ever seen. The
other pioduced only a poor crop. I
allowed the. vines to remain untouch
ed upon the land unil the middle of
November, when I turned them under
and sowed oats. The difference in
the growth of the oats is as marked
ns it was in the pens; and, in fact, one
I consider a beautiful crop; the other
poor. 1 sowed perhaps a little more
oats on the one acre than on the other ,
but not enough to ma e the differ
ence as marked as it now is."
Mr. Pringle also kimlh offers to
aid your committee by giving them
any informal! ?n within his r -ach and
Mr. Pan- S Im hier, agent of I lie
"Stale Grange of South Carolina,"
has obligingly furnished the following
notes of experiments begun on his
plantation in Orangeburg:
"About ten acres of laud, dry and
rather sandy, with a gradual slope
ol about one foot to tho bund rod loot,
planted ono year in cotton, the next
in corn, and in the fail of 187(1 in
oats, umde about fifteen bushels to the
acre. Gats were cut in June, calves
and bogs pastured on land until lat
ter purl of July; then a mixture, two
parts calcined marl and one part each
ground phosphate and German
kainit, was sowed, with cow-peas,
broadcast on eight acres at tho rate
of |opr hundred pounds of tljo former
and one bushel of the Inttor to the
acre, and were turned under. The
peas grow luxuriantly, the vines cov-'
I ered the land completely, fruited Well,
and it was, necessary to drag the wood-,
en side of the harrow over the fie'iHu
November in order to level thoni be
fore turning under.
"The remaining two acres wcro
sown in pens, without the mixture., at
the Fame time with the eight, and tho
crop was not good on them by o:ie
half at the least.
"In November, without pickin g
tho peas, the .en acres Wfresowod
down, about a half acre in barley, one
aero in wheat, and the rest in oats, and
peas, and vines, barley, wheat and
oats were turned under with a Watt
"About two or three weeks after, a
part of a cot to.i held manured for cot
ton with two luindr d pounds Georgia
.Slate Grange Fertilizer to the acre
was planted in wheat. The result ho j
far is j.hat i'- bar'ey, wheat and
oats planted with the *ash element'
(a* the above mixture is called,) >ia I
peas turned under uro far ah m I >f ;
"To sum it up. I ha e eight aeic* >
j of oats, bar'ey and wheat planted
I with ash element and peas, two in
! oat.s after peas alone four acres of
wheat and twenty five of oat.s in the
cotton hold manured with two hund
red pounds Georgia StaLe Gnt"ge
Fertilizer per acre when the cotton
was planted, and about forty acres of
oatp on rested land."
Mr John Stoney Porcher, of Wal
worth, upper St Jobu's.writes: "I
had three-fourths of an acre in peas,
with two hundred and fifty pounds
ash element last spring, for wheat in
the fall. Owing to abme mistake the
wheat was not planted until the 5th
of February. It looks very well now,
but is too small to conjecture any
thing about it.
"The ash element was used nil
peas that wore planted, invai tab' .\
to feed to mules in the summer, w*7^fr
pood results. On six acres 1 put
200 pounds per acre, applying i* to
every other row. The. effec t was
quite apparent, both in color and in
Quantity of vine and peas. They
were cut in August as needed. The
vines with ash element put out again,
and made small fruit, But for the
drought they would hnv made a
good second crop. The vines with
out the ash clement put out u few
leaves, but made no fruit. The land
was quite poor.
"One of mv ucighbors planted
three acres of pens with the a>-h ele
ment, (the quautity of this used I do
not know,) last spring. Hogs were
allowed to eat off the peas. Two acres
were put in wheat and one in rye, the
last week in January.
"These are the only experiments in
progress here. Several will be under
taken this year, using the five hund
red pounds of ash element per acre
with peas, preparatory for small
grain and cotton."
It is understood that Mr. \V. G.
Hinsou and other planters on James
I Island will begin experiments this
I spring. Mr. Joseph T. Dill will do
J the same.

Your committee are indebted to
Mr. James G. Holmes, Jr., for a re
port of very interesting experiments
with wheat and grass on the rice
lands of Cape Fear River, North
'Carolina, prepared when on a visit to
Wilmington last November. Mr.
Holmes assures your committee that
the statements may he relied on as
they were obtained from gentlemen
wht planted the crop, and as he
places the report at the disposal of
the committee, it is introduced entire:

" The great hope of society is indi
vidual character, because it. not alone
effects the individual himself, but al
ao the society iu which he lives.
Emerson says that the character of
men make the conscience of society in
which they live. Benjamin Franklin
attributed all his .-success among men
to the character he established for
illiuseil imu um iu aiijr m J! I iilUC V 0?
intellect. Character is capital in it
self. It is a victory organized, and
docs not depend upon birth, fortune
or influence. There is no capital
goes so far or pays so well, and bank
ruptcy iu character is seldom repair
ed iu a life time. To establish char
acter, feelings have to be disciplined,
habits mould*d and controlled in
obedience to reason and moral con
science, and when proper y fashioned
make the surest passport through life.
We find in everyday life that'when a
person of doubtful character circu
lates a peioe of news it is received
with suspicion, whereas when it is at
tributed to a man ot character people
hinten svith eager interest and convic
tiou. The bo<t time to testa man of
character is when the tide, is against
him. GtorgG Washington was a true
example of a man of great character,
who s. owed iu times of danger and
difficulty a loree of will, a tenacity of
purpose that have never been sur
passed. It is loss of character that
has fi led prisons, poorhouses and
lunatic asylums, and only when
people appreciate the true worth of
character ?how jealously it should
be guarded and transferred as a pro
cious heritage t?> their offspring?will
the world furnish lewer causes of hu
man misery, sorrow ami degradation.

A Beautiful Idea.
I cannot believe thatea. th is man's
abiding place. It cannot be that our
lile is cas up by the ocean of eternity
to float lor u moment on its waves
and sink to nothingness. Else why
is it that the glorious aspirations
which leap like ngels from the tern pie
of our hearts are forever wandering
about unsatisfied 'I Why is it that
the rainbow and the elouds come
over us with beauty that is not of
earth, then pass off and leave us to
muse upon their faded loveliness?
Why is it that the stars who hold
their festivals around the midnight
throne are set above tho grasp of
limited faculties, forever mocking us
with their unapproachable glory?
And finally, why is it that the bright
forms of human beauty presented tJ
our view and then taken from us,
leaving the thousand streams four
ajfceiioiis to flow back iu Alpine tor
rents on our hearts? We are bom
tor a higher world than that 61 tho

never lade ? Where tho stars will be

that pass bet?re us like shadows will

Too Beautiful to Leave.
We have it from a gentleman of
undoubted veracity, says the Colum
bia Register, who conversed with
McEvoya few days before his execu
tion, that the unfortunate man, while
talking with his counsel on the day
alluded to, said that he had always
been indifferent about being execu
ted, and more especially since his last
escape.?even upon the day on which
he was respited by the Governor, at
which time he expected to bo'iu oi?.*
nily within an hour after the arrival
ot tho respite. 'But now, sir, life is
very sweet to me. Never, before did
the world look so beautiful to me.
The songs of the birds sound sweeter,
the leaves on the trees look greener
and fresher, the (sun which I have
never seen anything particularly
beautiful,) breaks through my cell
window, and, for the first time in my
lite, 1 see beauty iu that, too."?
The First Step.
There is no step so important as
the first step in any direction, espe
cially a wrong one. Having once
taken it, you are very likely to go
farther. One who steals a penny will
remember it when he thinks of steal
ing a sovereign. If he steals the
sovereign first, when he is tempted by
thousands ho will remember he is al
ready a thief. A perfectly innocent
person drca Is the soil ofauy sin upon
his soul, but after the slightest smirch
he cannot say, ''I am clean*" The
vulgar proverb, "One might as well
be hung for a sheep as for a lamb,"
means a great deal. Often the lamb
was stolen years before, and why not
take the sheep ?
