The Bread Problem.
We publish this morning- a very ine
resting and instructive artice by the
icv. li. D. Pratt, upon the bread
>robleui which is so momentous just
iow. in view of the short harvests of
a>t year. Mr. Pratt was for a large
lumber of years a missionary to South
America, and while there became
horougbly conversant with the ways.j
ie believes that the chief breadstuff of
Colombia can be introduced in South
Carolina to the greatest advantage.
Last year lie published an article de;cribing
this corn, and distributed the
;eed tree of charge, but as he gave it
he name of millet, it was confounded
vith our millets that are used for j
>rovender for stock; and this article
lid not receive the attention it deserved.
This time he has had some
>fthe corn ground in an ordinary;
jrist mill, and from the meal has had j
>read made. A.s ta?* as we can judge,
t is difficult to distinguish from our j
>rdinary corn-bread, and in fact is of
i better quality man oreau maue irom
iiich meal as is occasionally bought in j
>ur grocery stores. We commend the
irticle to the serious attention of our
armors, especially as to the line yield
nspite of drought, and as to the!
malysis which is appended. Let the!
>eople lay aside prejudice and make a j
air experiment. This is no speculaion
nor ;{job" as every one knows j
vho is acquainted with the gentleman ;
vho has written the article. lie is j
incerelv desirous of helping our peo- j
)Ie. and he believes that if given a fair i
rial this Millo Corn will prove as
>alatable and wholesome as our ordi- '
larv Indian corn, and very much j
iheaper. We commend the article to ;
>ur readers as one suggestion as to the ;
ncthod of solving the bread problem, j

on t!ie coast, where we have a dr;

have had it planted in niv garden, am
aiter it had ripened one crop of seed,
huve cut it down to the roots in tin
midst of this dry season, and had :
second crop (of inferior quality, o
course.) to shoot up at once from th
roots. I have have been told ther
ti;at a third crop of fully ripened see<
can thus be made from a single plant
ing. I do not know whv.t litis can im
ply, (for the soil at that season gets t<
be as dry as a potsherd, and nearly a
hard), unless it means that, abovi
most other plants, tms lives ot in
atmosphere, which there certainly i
densely charged with moisture iron

ty to stand drought which induced m<
to bring the seed home, in the belie
that it would be of incalculable service
to our Southern States, where on
grain crops so often fail from drought
and where a really good crop come
perhaps once in-five years, it so oiiei
as that.

Corn has always grown with the uf
most luxuriance. bearing an abund
ant yield of seed (the largest heads, s<
far as weighed, giving five or sis
ounces of clean seed apiece), and the
plants remaining green, without thi
firing of a leaf, till frost. Whether ii
lives of the atmosphere or no, I wil
not affirm; but this I will say (am
our town is full of witnesses to th<
fact) that if planted early enough t(
insure a good start, say April 15th 01
a facttr iich is as thoroughly demon
strateil in South Carolina as in Soutl
America. It stands dry weather mucl
better than even cotton does.
I committed a serious error lasi

1 am satisfied that with this graii
we can flood the State with wholesome
corn meal at twenty-five cents, i
bHshel, and insure a crop whatevei
the season may be. I am satisfied thai
with careful culture it will yield ir
Fairfield county from 50 to 100 bushels
to the acre of clean seed (60 pounds tc
the bushel by actual experiment) oi:
best uplands; and as, like wheat, il
blossoms and fruits at the iop, I believe
that, like wheat, its yield in capable
of indefinite extension. I am unwilling
to concede that 200 bushels t<;

conditions of season and of culture,
would be an impossible thing:?that i?
to say, nearly double the largest yield

are nearly lo,ow hills to the acre, and
even in this exceptionally dry summer,

{; pit', above all in this cot rou-j: rowing ' l1
L'j section, where ail grain and forage !l
[ ! crops are so uncertain. v
1 ' The plant is aliied to the Sorghum s
f j and the Guinea Corn families, and i ?
! j shouid not be planted where there is ! 1
i j danger of mixing with t!;em. The ! l;
| graii' is smaller and more mealy ! 1
i I than the Guinea corn, the heads are I
r j larger and less compact, and the col -r ' '
i I is milk white instead of red. !t differs ! i!
t from the sorghum in this, that the j 0
r i snjrar it contains is fully concerted j s
i j into corn when the grain matures, j )
| so that the pith of the green stalk be- [ :l
t j oomes as dry and tasteless as that <>t i 1
f Indian corn when tlie stalk is dead, j :l
s Except for this, and as the valuable j '
k- product of leaves is green till frost, j:l
. the whole might be converted into | !
] j ensillage, after the grain from the ' c!
I main stem is harvested. If desired for ; l'
] the latter purpose, it can be planted on 1
. wheat or oat land, by improving the :i
r ^iant<fl abwii the fir^ot\viiiW# V,Uw !
e he in blossom, and therefore ready to '
.. cut. about the first or middle of No- *
r vember. As a green food for cows, s
) to be cut repeatedly during the sum- f
] mer. it has few equals.
j This grain should not be planted \ 11
1 near the house, for the chickens will j a
scratch it all up if thev get at it, and j s
' ' * " " ' I ! S
a wnt'ii 11 i;e win 11 v up uii.j me
f ing grain, clutch the stalks with their 1
3 feet, and bend or break them down in s
e order to ye"; at the heads. Fully n *
1 fourth of my best corn was thrown j s
. down in this way. The wccvels arc as s
. fond of it as tnc chickens, so that if a
j put u;> in tin; head, it should he
s sprinkled v?ilh salt, or interspersed 0
c with sassafras or hickory leaves, to pro- [
c tect it against their ravages. It docs ]'
5 nut. shell out and waste like wheat, and 11
1 yet it could readily be threshed out, a
. I suppose, in a wheat thresher. In a c
i> small way it can be threshed with a 0
f flail upon the floor, or with a stick in 11
2 a strong b;ig. The cows are fond of
r the empty heads, which makes it the c
. less necessary to thresh them quite l;
s clean. * s
j It will not be amiss to add that from j1
the time this corn is waist hisrh (June ;!
- - * ... -? i 11
. or July) until frost, n so ucuseiy *
i shades the ground as to kill out grass a
s and weeds. I believe that l?y this crop s
j nut-grass can be exterminated in two j'
i- or three seasons. "

i doubt not the analysis would have Y

Last Saturday the exodus began. and
since thai- time four or live hundred of ij
the emigrants reached Augusta, on *
their way to what they regard as the ?.
promised land. A large number came j tj
in Sunday on the trains of the Char- (|
lotte Columbia and Augusta Kaiiroad, j
and more came by the same means on i
Monday and yesterday. They seem to tj
i be thoroughly in earnest. They came ; c
| from near Edgefield Court House.; a
j from the Kidge, from Ninety-six, and ;',]
: other points. According to their ' ^
j statements, all the colored people in : a
; entire settlements have left, and some ! v
! large plantations are left without any. ;
j A number of those in Augusta reached ; ;J
here in their own wagons, or on their ^
own mules, expecting to sell these j t
i when they arrived here, but so far the ()
! majority of them have not been able to ' fi
| find :>ale for the property. Some of j j
! them say tliey cannot sell because the \ j,
! white people do not wish them to : j
i l ave, and. will not buy from them. A j t|
Chronicle representative conversed j jj
j with a number of them in regard to | j.
j why they lel't and what they exported 0
to do. They said a colored preacher,
named John Hammond, preached to '0
them and advised them to go to Ark an- 0

and sent i:im to Arkansas to invysti- n

It will thus be-seen that on the whole
the appropriations are slightly less
than last year, and that both the deductions
in certain items and the increase
of others are amply justified by
i tli3 circumstances. The above table
I does not include the legislative expenses
which will be provided for by
I the special legislative appropriation I
bill at the end of the sc.- sion.
Roiibeky and Inckxdiauism.?The '
ginhouse of Mr. G. W. Xirkpatrick. of
the Halsellville scction, was destroyed :
; by an incendiary fire last Thursday !
\ night about 9 o'clock. There were
l also destroyed sixteen bales of cotton.
I 2.000 bushels of col ton seed, a three-;
| quarter wagon, four sets wagon bar-!
ness and other articles. The loss will
amount to ?2,000. Xo insurance.
During the burning of the <rinhouse i
jhe family of Mr. Kirkpatrick left tho
residence for thesccneof conflagration,
and during1 their absence the house
was entered unci a trunk containing
$210 taken therefrom. Two hundred
dollars was taken, but ten dollars iii
gold remained in the bottom of the
triink and was recovered. There is no
doubt that the ginhouse was burned
for the purpose of committing/ the
robbery, and that the deed was/done
by the same parties. Four .Colored
men, two living on the place and two
on an adjoining place, wen*'*arrested
on suspicion. A preliminary examination

I Tiwro Li nothing more oalnful tfcese
diseases; but the pain can be removed and
tlie disease cured by use of Perry Davis*
Pain Killer.
This remedy Is not a cheap Benzine
or Petroleum product that must be kept
away from fire or heat to avoid danger
of explosion, nor Is it an untried experiment
that may do more harm than good.
Pain Killer baa been In constant use
for forty years, and the universal testimony
from all parts of tie world la, It never
fails. It not only effects a permanent cure,
but It relieves pain almost instantaneously.
Being a purely vegetable remedy, it is sal?
In tlie bands of the most Inexperienced.
The record of cures by tbe use of Paw
Killer would fill volumes. Tbe following
extracts from letters received sbow whac
