WMM speaking of Southern grapes permit me ts make a few remarks iu reg trd t them. I find th it although this frwit prospers while growing In the hot sun of the South, the intense heat of those months in which the grape ripens, is much against (he Zrutt after picking; the heat causes them to rot very quickly after they are packed. Although they may look lt before packing, during tne iratis- portatlon ttoey become so damiged that if not so il the same day tnpy arrive It becomes so apparent on the next that it is almost impossible to disoose of them at a fair market price The first effect, and least noticeable feature of this damage to the unitiat d, Is a dunning of the skin to a deadnesi that indicates a speedy decay, or the blackening of the stem and dropping of the berry, which is alike fatal to the sale of them. This dullness or the akin is followed by the juice oosing lirom the grape and standing on the kin for a short time, when they unite and wet the entire package, spoilitig tbe fruit. I had almost overlooked one variety Proceedings of the Southwest tLfTitT' T era Fruit Growers' Associa- iDoernone earnest request of several growers, I introduced them in our market, but they did not give satisfaction to our consume' s.

It is quite certain that, however p datable anil popular this fruit may be in the Sou: 1. it never will answer to send North to compete with the Northern grapes. Where to Cut and How to Broil a Good Steak. BY PBOV. AUSTIN FLiBT, JR. There Is one grent gastronomic ad vantage which the city possesses over the country, and that is the telectioi of beef. There is no reason why ;i eountry gentleman should not have the best mutton, lamb, veal, poultry, and vegetables; but it lit always dilii eull to buy good beef, unless ono has n immense amount of material from "which to choose; and even then, there li nothing more difficult to select than beef.

This is the celebrated porter-lmus" steak. It has the tenderloin, with its deli clout, soft tat, for those who like the tender meat, and the sirloin, Which is somewhat more highly flavored. The porter house steak is better than the tenderloin or fillet; the latter is very U nder, but it has not much flavor, and should be larded, or served wiih some made sauce to be a goi d dish. The small sirloin stk is almost as rood as the porter house. A magnift- eent steak and one very seiuom cut in this country, is from the rib, say the second-cut rib-, which ure usually counted the best roast ii g pieces.

Redmond and E P. Itus perly cooked that is less than an inch . Tn. on 'notion the President, and a quarter in thieknes-i, Und it is better an inch and a halt thick. To broil a good steak is easy, and at the same time it is difficult some times to make cooks appreciate the importance of minutiae, and to force thein to discard certain old-fashioned, mistaken notions. To one, familiar only wilh the results of culinary operations, it will seem almost pre- psterous to nosterous to sav mat a gooo steaii should not be pounded ; but it is a faci that implements have been devised and constructed for that purpose alone. npt Pound a Kod steak, but fl (( r wUh lQe sj(Je ()f , n it- he chopper, trim it properly, prepare it carelully, and cook it rapidly Some epicures regard it as very im Dortant to season the steak bifon c oking. while others do not put any thing upon it until it is done. This qu.-.tian, about which there is con 8 derable differerco of opinion, is of jttie practical importance. If the m -at be g od, and if the cooking be iropcrlv done, it makes no uiner n when th;? steak issalud and peppered To prepare the steak, rub in salt and nenner well with the nanu, ami urease both sides slightly with sweet lr.l or fresh butter. U.-e none of the strong butter of inferior quality, I commonly kuown as cooKing ouuej jTbe steak thus prepared should then oe placed between the bars of a well- warmed liszht gridiron, so that it can bo easily turned over the fire. Tin preparation of the Ure is the most im portant point of all. The very best is a clear fire of bright hickory coals. The next best is a charcoal fire; but e bright fire of ordinary coal will broil pretty well. It is indispensabta that the fire be hot and clear; and there should be no smoke from dripping gravy, which can easily be avoided with proper care. Put the steaK over the tire, and turn often until done. When done, place it upon a hot dish, sprinkle over it a little more salt and nenner. stiread over it a little sweet butter, and let it be served anil eaten immediately. The difference in flavor , 1 a. I I.,.,l tifnnlr uuli.n botween a well-cooked steak eaten Immediately and one served five minutes after it is done, is enormous. A great deal could be said about i the chemistry of such a stenk as we have described. As far as the devel upment of the aromatic principles of the meat is concerned, this dish is dmply perfect. The brisk heat rapid ly coagulates the tissue of the exterior and prevents Hie escape of the jaices, while frtquent turning prevents the fibre from being charred. The meat j should be cooua d entirely through, ' and the interior should be of a uui ! form red color, never dark and raw. 1 When fuch a steak is cut, if the raw j material be of the first quality the lien will ot lliuuumiu Willi nil mav which is the real juice of the meat. Such a dish is not only most savory and app -tising, but it is exceedingly digestib.e. It physicians would learn to give mjeats prepared in this way to iheir patients during convalescence; more fnquently than they now do, recoveries from exhausting diseases would ba more rapid and complete, and if m ire atteniion were paid to the little minutiae of cooking, health and happiness would be greatly pro moted. tion.

The value ot the cow Pea as a Fertilizer. Mr. Editor To compeiisatefor the loss of labor, the South Bust bring to her aid nil that is valuable in manure and skillful cultivation. .Much to our loss, in former times, but little attention was paid to either of these subjects The planter, rare ly ever managing his own plantation, left it to those who had uo interest in its improvement. Now, it is dif ferent. The owners of lands, in most cases, will have to superintend their cultivation, and there being much more land for cultivation than we have labor to work the idle land should be undergoing some process of fertilization, so that frequent changes conld bo made. And what red clover is to the West, the cow pea is to the South the cheapest and best crop to improve the pro ductiveness of our land. It is in t'le power of every planter having a surplus of land, to keep a portion of it in the crop. Tho land may be plowed and planted at any time be tween January and July, and the j -43 ?s may be sown broadcast or planted in drills. After the first planting, they will come up every spring, without replanting, or even plowing. Yet tho plow should be used at least once during the year, to turn the vines nnder. If this is done before the peas mature, they will have to be replanted, but after maturity the plowing will be difn cult without some improved method of cutting the vines ahead of the plow, which it is hoped some skill ful mechanic will furnish. It is estimated that three yvors in red clover restores the soil of the West to its virgin strength. The writer believes the pen will be as beneficial to the Southern lands in the same timo. The effect of the pea, besides enriching the land. would make it mellow and easy to work, and would destroy tlie weeds, to sucb an extent that the eultiva- tion would oe much less expensive, and the crop greatly increased in quantity and of better quality. All these considerations arc t)t primary importance to the planter, and should receive bis earnest atten tion. From the Central Star. HEDGES. AfWmitfigra of Pyrin -ambus for Hedging. The termination of tbe war left our i country, and by this we mean the South, in a poor condition to accept tne "situation" imposed Upon her. With a large and hitherto organized sjstem of well controled labor, there was no effort to keep up tho Value of lands, but as soon as one Held was worn out, another was cleared, until large and increasing fields covered the whole country. Where this would have stopped, it is hard to imagine; yet certain it s, that sucli a state of things could in the end produce but one of two results, an abandonment of that system of cul tivation, or that of the country for new lields of labor. Most of the good timber for rails had been cut, and various expedients been resorted to in making fences, so that the end found us with dilapidated enclosures, a disorganized and demoralized class of laborers, and no laws to afford protection to property. Stock es pecially Buffered the consequences. The first object in view to every one resident here, was to . "cure peace, and then prosperity. Expe rience has tamght us to expect little peace or protection from our conqucr ers, and to our own efforts wo must look for both. Not that we are at all bellicose, and would renew the struggle; but there is a ine.rtrt left us by which our fields can be perroa nently and seen rely protected from all rtraTntvders, be they of the genus Ikdiii) or quadrupeds. Thus prevent ing stealing, or storit disturbing the growing crops, with a consequent loss of time and injury to the slock, we shall be in a condition to enjoy Somewhat of seem ity and peac, wit li mit seeking a degrading condition ol fraternity. This can be done by hedging. Ill" difficulty of making fences under our present system of labor is patent to all. Preedmen and white men dislike rail-splitting, notwith standing the illnstrioasT) example of an American President! Vet such is the case, and not even the hope or prospect of attaining snob weighty distinction, can induce one of Atii ; ca's humblest Sons to admire the business.

Fences rot rtrtt;0ii,. nnj f-,. .. ,. . - """". ..ww. - newals ; hedges, however, especially those ot ryracanthus, are very long lived, rtncl the tnird generation will probably realize their protection. The advantages of Pyracanthus, an evergreen shrub generally known throughout the country, are these : 1st. It never grows to be a tree taller than twelve or fifteeu- feet, in the richest land, and sends up no suckers, nor extends its roots to the injury of crops. 2d. It never sheds its thorns, and or need For a durable "hedge, prepare the land in November or December, by making a bed of six furrows made by a turning plow, each fnrrow fol lowed with a shovel-plow, making 'the whole as deep and thoroughly plowed as possible. If the land is not naturally rich, it should be well enriched with some vcll rotted man- : ure before plowing. Open a deep furrow' in the centre of this bed, and ; plant the cuttings from ten to twelve inches -apart in this furrow, and lean them to one side. Prepare the cut tings from nine to twelve inches long, and cofer 'two thirds of their length iu the ground, and Slightly pack'the ground around' them. After 'the fVap recedes in these, generally the following fall or winter, cut off the tops of the plants to within three or four inches of the grbhnd, and follow the same process the next year. The land near the plants might be lightly stirred when they are young, hut not nehr' eriough to disturb their growth. Cuttings might in favorable seasoii's be set out as late as February, bht not With so much certainty of their living. In planting seeds, gather them af ter the first killing Irost in the fall, butt 'put them away in sand, l i a warm and moist place, and sow'ih drills iu February. From these beds they should be transplanted the fol lowing fall or winter. Keep the weeds alltl grass hoed away from the seedlings in drills. J M. The Supply of Meat TIMELY WARNING TO THE MCTII A St. Lours pork-packer issues the 'following circular, which con cerns the people of the South. It shows the absolute necessity of rigid economy in the use of meat, and is 'the strongest argument that could be advanced for the home produc tion of this essential article of food : Evidence daily accumulates going to show that the present year the South will demand and consume double the quantity of provisions that she did last year. In View of this, what is the condition of the hog product in the West at this time? The South is consuming the meat of the hew crop, while the old stock was consumed long hefore the new cure could be bronght forward. This is unusual for the season, irnd is of great importance. In the lace of this fact, we have the evidence that there is at least an even chance for a small crop of hogs to give us the meat for the coming wauts. Could we conic np to last year's ciop, we should then be deficient, for that only met the necessities which were cramped by the lack of means to pay. Now, with increased facilities for payment, and a con sumption so far of the new crop, as tonishing and unusual, and yet legit imate, as we have before this re marked, the ' hog product" is to be short this year, in any event that can now occur. Some writers tire tkaauitiBg upon the fact that the higher prices are checking the ex- irortatrons. To our mind this is of little concern, for from present ap pearances, die West will have no provisions to send out of the coun try. The home consumption will be as much as we can meet ; aud we may not be able to do even that, if tne nogs t'.o not come forward m a larger supply than they have done thus far, aud than many predict tbev will. Relative to bigU prices, we ; state, without fear of contradiction, that be who buys boffs at 9ic srross. and sells tbe product at tbe present rati s, loses money on every bog so slaughtered. One thing is palpable, either bogs must come down in price, or tbe product must go higher than at anj price we have yet seen. It is estimated at tbe present time that the stock of bogs is only about half, and that of pork about one-quarter, of the .-toek of last year at Chicago, and other points also short. A Mixed Husbandry. An exchange, in a disquisition ou farming policy, says : It will bo seen that wo must now lay our plans for a mixed husbandry that is, the product of the field, the orchard and tbe Harden. Not only these, but there is another small Itetii or two that should not be overlooked.

It is true that this is a Crop not maturing in one yedr; but it is nev ertheless a crop we must plant and wait patiently for the harvesting. Our old forests will soon be stripped of timber for this purpose, and the new supply must come from the farms; we must; therefore, begin at once to supply this new dem.tud. We shall have more to do with tbe garden and the orchard, and as besi) must be sheltered from the bleak winds, and as there is nothing better for tho purpose than the for est trees that we shall need for rail road ties, which will grow in these shelter belts a thing of annual va' ne autl in tho end make largo re tnrns of capital wo should' plant herd.
