" - " It is very pleasant tp see the fine ef fects of good and 'seasonable rains upon the crops. From Asheville to this point the eye is greeted with such, corn as ftas not been seen in many yearsT The beau tiful vallev of Mill river seems a granary in itself, the Boilston valley through its whole length seems one vast field of corn, surpassed by the exuberant pros pect along Davidson river. In Buncombe and in Henderson, a good deal of tobacco is seen, and in fine condition. The acreage of this :crop in Transylvania is small. : Mr. Young tells me he has six acres in cultivation, which promises well; but this is the only ex ample in this county, of any thing larger than a patch.-. There has been a snrpris ingincrease in the cultivation of Sorghum. Some farmers will make from 300 to 500 gallons of syrup. ;A. W; Connell, not far from Brevard has a field often acres. The cutting and boiling will begin next week. Several varieties of seed have been plant ed, all of which has a different period of maturity. lae uDenan 1 Deiieve is tne earliest.-- .';'- .. ' - '" ; : I noticed in Buncombe and the north ern part of Henderson large fields of buckwheat, but none,' in this county along the road. : There is much rye sow ed in Transylvania for. winter and early spring TrastUrage. ' Farmers sow from 40 to 100 acres.; : -They are seeding now, and some crops are already .up. ;. A";. :A It is only a question of time when the No-Fence law will be adopted here. The sentiment of the people is steadily grow ing in favor of the adoption of such law. The fact that this market is not sought now as eagerly as it had been by South Carolina buyers of beef cattle, because theyjieed not now go abroad for supplies owing to the improvement pf stock unr der the operations of the fence lawrid an argument that cannot fail in: its forcible presentation of the question. ; Another argument has grown to have some weight. 01 iaie many neaa 01 cauie nave Deen killed in the range, whether as trespass ers, or from malice cannot be known. But it suggests a danger that cannot be guarded againsY only in one way. Cattle must be kept "under the eye of the owner. I have seen, little fifuit here. It is too early for fine apples. Tho frost of the 10th of May did much injury to apples, I think the crop is a small one. Few peaches are to be-seen. Grapes seem to thrive, though I have only seen what Jasper Orr was kind enough to present me. He brought me yesterday a section of vine about two feet long so thick set with bunches as to appear like one large cluster. The cluster weighed four and 3. half pounds and there was not a defec tive berry among the whole. It was the Concord grape. I have always thought this section peculiarly suited to the grape and the production of wine. Mr. Lucas from his vineyard succeeds in making a real and a very excellent wine. ; . . ,!'. ; It is very easy to appear extravagant in writing of Transylvania. : It is surely a most beautiful country with its strong cuiitrasb- vi wiiu or majestic mountains and unbroken forest, and of broad and peaceful valley, margined with fine dwellings and well cared for farmsteads; with grain and grasses, and shrubbery and flowers and ever animated shade tree! and groupings of picturesque and stately white pine, which seems to de light as, a transplanted tree inf tha soil of this and Henderson count'; aud jhen tO'theae things may be added the large herds of cattle which are the wealth and the ornament xf the. valley farina. ; ine county - is aisoTictr inr tne -pictur esque, scenery and in the number of ob jects in nature grand and beautiful. lhere are probably more waterfalls of beauty and of magnitude than in any other part of the mountains, and most of these are within a few miles of Bre vard. Those on Little, river, eight or ten miles away are perhaps the finest, as having the largest volume of water, and perhaps the highest falls.. But quite as beautiful, while much nearer, are the Maiden Hair Falls, three miles away, Conestee Falls, eight miles (which Xviait to-morrow,)Looking Glass Falls, up -on Davidson's river, Toxaway Falls, and a number of others, the supplies of which come from high up in the Ble Ridge, the Balsam, and its offshoots; leaping out when half fledged from their rocky nests to sport themselves in the placid vallevs below.' It is the country for the tourist insearch of the beautiful and picturesque at the expense possibly of roughing it sometimes in somewhat sequestered re cesses. . ' . . ' Besides the exuberance of, vegetable nature in-this country I have bo ques tion there will be much mineral ,toeas-, ure to reward research 'when the wil derness shall, have been laid bare a little more. It is. reasonable to expect that goia ana other metals will be discovered besides mica, corundum, asbestos, &c. Latterly, a gold vein has been opened about a mile from the Courthouse, just beyond the farm of Mr. Lucas, and it is creating some" excitement. Col. Clayton tells me of an old work he was familiar with in his younger days. . It was a tun nel on the side of Little mountain, five miles north from here, run evidently in search of metal. , It was run in to the depth of about 300 feet, and was the work of . men usinsr iron in excavating. Iron tools, or rather the- fragments of iron - furnaces were found. ' The work was done anterior to tho settling. up of the country4-by out' people.

Rogers, of Prattaville, Alabama, accompanied by. his wife, came to Asheville for his health, stopping at the Western Hotel. He was rapidly- improving, and every hope was entertained for bis permanent recovery. Tuesday night, feeling somewhat restless, he asked for a dose "of morphine, which he was in the habit of taking,' but asked that the dose, be increased. - He seemed to rest all night, but in the morning . his wife calling him-he seemed ia -heavy stupor. Dr. Cain, the attending physi cian was sent for, and upon examination it was found he had taken too much morphine and all efforts to resuscitate him proved unavailing. At 1 p. m. the unfortunate man died. All deeply sym pathize with his greatly bereaved wife and family. His remains were taken home yesterday, A Pleasant Tbjp to the Black. Mr. W. H. Ross of the Western Hotel returned this morning from a five days' camp on the Black Mountain. He was accompanied by Rev. E. B. Burroughs and Wm. Murphree,- Esq., of StA Louis.

A CARD FROM THE POSTMASTER. ... - - , POSTOFMCB, J ': ""- Asheville, Ni C-, Sept. 9.) Messrs. Editors: Your uniform cour tesy and fairness heretofore towards me, induces me to believe that you will al low me the space in your paper to make a public denial of the base charge made by the Black Mountain Pioneer of recent date, and to denounce it as a deliberate falsehood when it asscrts.that the busi ness of this office has been careless, badly and incompetently managed since it has been in my hands; and further to. say that the Advance in giving publicity to the charge but stultifies itself in that it has heretofore testified publicly to the honesty, faithfulness, and efficiency of the management of the affairs o f the of fice since it has been under my control. There have been occasional mistakes, as there have been in every office in the government, but no one can truthfully say there lias been either carelessness or inefficiency.- We have done our ut most to avoid all mistakes and keep the office in such condition as to serve the public faithfully and efficiently. When ever the President sees proper to turn the office over to othersj I am ready with correct' accounts -and - clean- hands to "step down and out," . but no one shall say I have been unfaithful to the trust which has been committed to my charge.

The genera average is 65(3)08 against 65 in Jolvj; except, as result of threshing may change : the present expectation. The winter wheat area may be placed at zi,uuu,uuu Dusneis ana tne remaining area about 13,000,000.
