Wyllie The soil is unsurpassed in richness from the accu- jjj mutated washing? of the mountains and the mould 1 cf perhaps centuries of luxuriant vegetation. By f judicious management such a soil can never become j exhausted. Mr. McGregor euters upoo his herculean U task to regenerate this large plantation with aa energy D that is fully cceded and those sound scientific principles of agriculture that cannot fail of the highest results. It was with ua feigned pleasure that I perceived the introduction of the system of making use of the trash for fertili zing the soil by underplougbing, and it were well for our planters individually, and for. the country at large, if our sugar planters would follow this method, to often advocated and so ably argued by the highest ' sr-4 standard-bearers of agricultural science. Bousin- R giult, Thaer, Litbig, Johnston, Mulder, Gray, kc. Thousands of acres of the most fertile soils, hundreds It of once rich plantations in the entire range of the 5j South of the Unite-i States of America, have been ex- U hausted and sunk into barren wastes by injudicious 'H firming. There are few countries where a judicious Course oi tarmiog in so mucn neeueu as in mis. in ri , ,. : ri of land is still in its pristine youth. Here we are confined to a certain extent of arable land, whose boundaries may easily be estimated and measured by chain and taoeline. If we exhaust our fertile soils V ly following in the track of so many who style themselves firmers, but in reality are the most wanton spendthrifts, we rob our children and coming gene rations of a wealth which a bountiful Providence lestowed cu us to keep for them, we leave to them an inheritance of poverty and prison tasks, by leav ing to them an exhausted soil, worn out acres and do!ate homesteads. This is a subject th U pleads not only to the head and heart of our intelligent nlanter for consideration, but should as well receive 12 the attention of our legislature, if ever in that body i a spirit of wisdom and patriotism should happen to eater.

Such a plough would not only open a broad and deep fur row fr the reception of trash, &c, but it would be uumu v1 u j u a ava vakuau i wi a v r 0 ava lauiiiig ty nrl f,w Ptinnlnif . 1 i f fi an. I hora ltt m a a rri .1 r lr that I have seen too little attention paid to this, one of the most beneficial operations of farming, judicial ditching. The expenses and the labor in following the above method would not be augmented. It would be merely a shifting of the time cf its performances; but the advantage derived from ploughiug under the leaves and tops and trash in as green a state as possi ble, is obvious from the fact that nearly three fourths of the whole organic matter in this manner buried into the ground has been derived from the i air, that by ploughing in the green matter the natu ril decay is much accelerated and ammonia and nitric acid are to a great extent produced in the soil, ' and that the escape of the gases engendered by decay, ' is a powerful assistant to render the soil porous and J ready to receive and convey the required nourish ment to the roots. When it is considered that the greea leaves absorb carbon i; acid from the air and discharge the oxygen for the purpose of appropri ating tue carbon, and that sugar contains 42 per cent, of carbon, no one can doubt the advantage to generate this carbon witbin reach of the roots to be absorbed by them, either in a liquid state or in the form of carbonic acid, and also that the tender shoots of the rattoons will have the g ises evaporating from the decaying matter ready and in abundance near their thousands of pores to receive their food, their existence, their vigor to rais that solid pyramid, the sazar stock, that shall yield its generous juice for the benefit of the planter, the laborer and the mil lions of consumers. But I fear that I am becoming rather prolix in remarks that may be little interesting to your read er.), and I perceive from the length of my manu r;pt the necessity to move on, if I intend to leave Kauai this year. The plantation above the mill is dividel by the river, the greater part lying on the right bank. What pleases the beholder so much is the perfect level cf the whole plantation, a level so perfect that the eye at least cannot perceive any ti.:. i .. ....... - 1 ..f HTllllUU? 1 UI3 VI tl'UITC D-llta !

The river being the main thoroughfare and road toward the mill, to which the cane is transported in numeroui scows, atford at the same time the greater facility for a perfect system of ditching, by which the crops cannot fail to be greatly augmented. The n cipaoiiities or tne plantation are so great, mat 1 would not venture to make an estimate. I should ay that before long a thousand acres will bear lux uriant cane. With a large area of land, a soil un surpassed, a level facilitating labor, perfect drainage, a climate the most genial to ripen cane within a year, sheltered from every rude blast, the plantation of Hon. R. C. Wyllie is. to judge from my experience iu many lands, without a rival. During my stay there I was favored with most pleasant weather, and it was on a beautiful morning, when the dew, pvkled like glittering diamonds in the rays of the au jast rising over tne nilltops, that 1 took my leave from beautiful Hanilei and its kind inmates, N mounting nigber and nigher alonz the windinc road, f t"l at last the crest of the mountain was gained. 1 "a my tnp to Ko'.oa I enjoyed the society of a most P easant comp tenon de voyage in the person of the S accomplished engineer of Prtnceville, Mr. Webster K &al the large experience of this gentleman on sugar fj states in other countries made his society valuable ni instructive to me.

The pandanus where so plentiful, lends no beauty to the scenery, but rather gives to the country an aspect t-f dreari ness. Od our left we Lad at intervals a view of the R sea, the deep blue ocean.

The following is addi tional news by the Santiago : On the 4h of October the Spanish garrison was reduced to 1.000 by the de parture of the greater part from San Domingo. The same day 600 Spaniards sallied out from the fott, and after a s evere fight drove the Dominicans from the town. The Spaniards were assisted by the guns of the fort, which set fire to the town. The fire con tinued till the depirture of the S-tnliago, destroy inc. amongst other valuable stores, those of a considerable body of foreign merchants. In fact the whole town, except the Wesleyan Mission House and a row of small building?, was burned, and it was believed that the rett of the town would be destroyed. The loss by the two fires, at Santiago aud Port nu Piatt, will reach 5,000,000. The whole population of the lat ter place bad fled to foreign cou:. tries, and thou sands had gone to the neighboring island. Some of the principal merchants were leaving for the United States. None saved aught but their lives. Another accouut. from the Turk's Island Standard says : In tue bltIe ,be Spaniards were badly beaten and 1 ft. fl. . . . 1 r . ! . 1. 1 . m IfI driven back to the fort with loss of 450 men. A brisk fire from the fort compelled the Dominicans to leave the town. But few American or British offi cial residences remain. The Catholic churches were among the houses burned. The Spanish soldiers were seen going about with firebrands in their bands when the fight was progressing. Report said that the Span iards would soou evacuate the fort as they cannot re tain it against the Dominicans, who number 4,003 in the neighborhood. Report also says that the wl ile south side of the island is an actual rebellion, ami that the Dominicans, who are reported to have joined Santa Anna, had deserted him. The American, British and other Consuls bad arrived at Grand Turk Island. Itussia and Poland. The reply of Prince Gortschakoff to the French and Austrian notes on the Polish question has been published, together with accompanying memoranda. These replies manifest the same firm tone as that addressed to England. Relative to the allusion made by M. Drouyn de Lhuys to the Western Provinces of Russia, as participating in the international stipula tions which settled in 1815 the destiny of Warsaw, Prince Gortschakolf maintains that the Imperial Cabinet cannot admit that point of view, even in the most restricted mauner. Russia will not admit the right of Europe to interfere iu her internal allairs. It is said that Count Rechberg. the Austrian min ister, has advised that no respouse be made to Prince Gortschakotl's dispatch, but that the three great Powers now await further action on the part of the Russian Government toward the Poles. The Paris .Moniteur has reproduced the letter from Warsaw of Aug. 15, aldiessed by the Polish National Government to Prince Czartovifky, claim ing beliiyrerant rights, and its publication in the French official organ is considered by Euglish and continental journals as equivalent to an unofficial recognition by Napoleon ot the Polish National Gov ernment. Russia was actively engaged in warlike preparations. The Russian Emperor, in a speech, had promised reforms and extended privileges. Eleven iron plated gunboats, with turrets, will be completed by spring. ".IIOTIIKKS! JIOTHCUS ! ! .iiotiii:i:s ! ! ! DON'T FAIL. TO I'ROCl'KK MRS. Wl- gLOW SOOTHING SYUUI for CHILDREN TEETHING.

He says a Kfull brigade of Tennesseeans, with their general at their head, attempted to come through to our lines in a body one day last week, and that one division cf Kstaunch rebels was called out to prevent them. A fffight of the most sanguinary caaracter ensued, in H which artillery and musketry, were used for three or lour nours, resulting in toe overpowering 01 me dis contented Tennesseeans, after some bOO had been slaughtered on both bides. The souud of cannon was jg distinctly heard in our camps at the time, but nobody N could explain the phenomenon of a brisk fire so close Sto the enemy's rear.

Frederick the Great, a century ago, wished to enlarge his possessions and his palace. A certain mill obscured the view, and be offered the Prussian a fair price for it. He refuse 1 to sell it, because it w.s a paternal estate. Frederick then ordered the mill torn down, which was done. The miller stood calmly by, saying that he would abide by the law. He must obey bis sovereign, but the law did not compel him to sell his mill till be chose. He appealed to the courts, and the courts decided that Frederick should rebuild the mill. This be cheerfully did, thanking God that he had a court not influenced by impeial lear or favor Twenty years ago the present owner of the mill became involved and offered to sell it to Frederick William, the suc cessor of Frederick the Great. The sovereign refused to buy, but freely gave hitu $G000, saying that the mill must stand as a monumeut of the triumph of law, and Prussia stauds to-day as a constant monu ment of the nmjesty of law.
