A late letter from Tangier has the fol lowing account of a case of capital punish merit: In my last I believe I gave vou an ac count of a Moorish execution. Another instance of capital punishment here was attended with the lollowinjj singular cir- cumstances : A Moor of the village of Sharf had shot with a pistol, in the market at 1 angier, a fellow villager whom he sus pected of intimacy with his wife. The brother of the murdered man started im mediately for Meyuinez, where the Sultan was then residing, and claimed the life of the murderer. The Sultan heard the com plaint, acknowledged the justice of the demand, and summoning the plaintiff into his presence, delivered the following deci sion: We grant you our permission to take the life of the murderer of your brother, with the same instrument of death with which he was assassinated, and on the same spot, and at the same hour of the day. But,'' added the Sultan, why seeke'st thou also to be a man-slayer? Accept the price of blood which is lawful unto true believers, and we will guarantee you its payment from our Sherafiau hands, and two hundred mitzakel shall be the sum." To this the plaintiff' replied: 'Can that sum purchase me a brother?" 4iGothy way," said the Sultan; we have heard and understood a letter will be given you by the vizier, in which our mandate shall be written." Furnished with the sentence of death, the man returned to Tangier, and present ed it to the Governor. On the same day of the week and at the same hour, the mur derer was brought out of prison and seated on the very pot where he had taken his fellow villager's life, while crowds of peo ple attended to witness his death. The pistol was now given to the brother of the murdered man, who loaded it, went up to the criminal, walked slowly round him and said ln the presence of God anil man, I call upon yon to answer me truly : Didst thou slay my brother?" To this the criminal replied, did." One of the multitude now stepping forward, addres sed the brother of the murdered man: 'Ac cept the price of blood," said he, and I promise you 100 ducats in addition, which those assembled will gladly give." "Worthless words,'' said the villager; and again he walked round his victim. Again fie asked him the same question, and again the same reply was given. A second offer was now made of two hundred ducats, and again the villager walking round the criminal, repeated his quetion, adding, Say what thou believest ; 1 am about to take thy life." "That God is God, and Mahomed is the Prophet of God," responded the criminal. Scarcely were the words uttered, when the pistol was discharged- The muzzle had been placed at the small of the back, being the same spot where he had shot the man for whom he was now about to die; but the wretched criminal, although mor tally wounded, did not expire for some hours. California Fifty-Dollar Pieces. We had the pleasure of seeing yester day a fifty-dollar gold piece, the coinage of California, which is a beautiful and unique specimen of the abjlity of that in fant sister of our confederacy. It is octa gonal in its form, and on the front bears the following inscription: ''United States of America, 880 Thous. 50 D. C." On the reverse is a layed circle, ('a star, and around the edges Augustus Humber, United States Assayer of Gold, 1851." This ingot, which is stamped at the assay er's office in San Francisco, will not legally pass as currency, because there is yet no law to authorize it. But there is no question of its circulating freely in California and many other places, it is also in contemplation to strike ingots of one and two hundred dollars, like the fifty dollar piece, only it will be proportionally thicker. "The ingots of five hundred and one thousand dollars will be in form paral lelograms, about five inches long and one and three-quarters in width, ami varying in thickness, the smaller being about three- tenths ot tenths." an inch, Union. and the larger six- Germans in the West. Of the two hun dred thousand souls in Wisconsin, more than one hundred thousand are said to be Germans. This race of men are settling the countiy on the sources of the Missis sippi very rapidly, and in that region, if in any part of the Union, the German char acter and customs seem likely to impress themselves on the population. On the night of Monday and morning of Tuesday last, we had one of the most hea vy and devastating rains ever seen or felt in the vicinity of Wadesbo rough. In this all our planters, so far as we have seen them, agree. One gentleman told us that he had fences washed away on Gould's Fork where he never knew the freshet to reach before. Hill sides have been dreadfully washed, and low lands flooded, and we fear that a great deal of the planting done before the rain will have to be done over again. Up until this rain the spring has been so far very favorable. Wadtsboro' Jlrgas. MANAGEMENT OF MANURE OR COMPOST HEAPS. As the collection of manure is admitted on 'all hands to be the prime source of agricultural prosperity, 1 submit the fol lowing, on the management of certain mat ters, with a view to that subject: The first thing to be attended to is, the selection of a suitable spot for a manure heap. This should be on the top of some rising ground, or on a ground at least so level that there can be no ran of water to and from it, in case of violent rains. A true regard to economy, will also suggest that it should be placed on some field for which benefit it is mainly intended. Having marked out the ground say 25 feet by 16, or any other dimensions suita ble to your means, sink stakes' three or four inches in diameter, two feet below the surface of the ground, and rising to any convenient height above, at each corn er, and at proper distances along the sides and ends- Now collect from the woods, sufficient leaf mould or rich virgin soil to cover the whole space inclosed, one foot deep, laying old rails, or any other materi al at hand fit for the Durnoe. alonir the in- side of the stakes, as the mould rises, to confine it within its place. Next, take from the stalls of your animals, (the way of managing which, will presently be given,) as much manure as will cover this mound, all over equal 1 v, to the depth of one foot, except the sides and ends which should invariably be mould onlv for at least six inches from the rails, by which means it will be percei"ed that the rich and enriching material will be so cased up as to prevent me escape oi tne gases. i'hen cover this layer of manure, as soon as may be, in order to prevent loss oy evaporation, with mould from the woods, to the depth of six inches, and cover the whole with any kind of straw, as wheat. oat, barley, rye, or buckwheat, one foot deep This will do much to enrich the surface, at the same time it prevents injury from the sun and wind. Leaves will do, but straw is much better Q?3 Let it stand in this state until your stalls again require cleaning. You will then remove the straw, and spread another layer of ma nure, except the sides and ends, to the depth of one foot, and over that, a new lay er of mould six inches deep, as before, fi nally replacing tne straw as in the first in stance. Go on repeating the process till stakes,; then replace the straw and let the whole stand till required for use, commen- cinga new neap any where else most con venient. As it may be thought the layers of ma nure would be too thick, I will now give some directions for the management of the horse stable, cattle stalls, hog pens, &c. , from which it is to be taken. Before en tering upon this, however, I would pause one moment to remind the reader of what I he has been again and again told in this valuable journal, namely, that any animal that is worth keeping at all is, on all ac counts, worth keeping well. Probably there is nothing in which the farmer errs so fatally to himself, as in the system of starvation so often pursued with regard to his poor, suffering brutes. One animal well fed is of more profit in the end, than three half fed; and for the same reasons, the manure from one well fed, is worth all the poverty-stricken droppings of three times its number, half-starved. Few things are more evident than these; and yet, there are. very few things which some men of intelligence are so slow to receive and act upon. It is with us, respecting animals, very much as with regard to acres; every one is crying "more, more;' when in nine cases out often, every indi vidual acquisition is a positive and mate rial loss. It would be difficult to lay down .1- r I a rule on mis suoject, oi universal appli cability. This much, however, may safe ly be said: it you want good animals, and good rich manure, (which it properly man aged, will al'-vavs be a fair compensation for the food consumed in making it, you must not stint your animals; you must feed as nearly to" the full, in quantity and quality, as you can without waste. Another rule highly necessary to success in manufacturing manure is, that ever? an imal on a plantation should be housed at night, the year round; and in winter, by day, except so much time as is necessary for them to get water, and take sufficient exercise. In very cold weather, they should be iet out only to get water, and then immediately put up again. This is the writer's own rule, and he finds it works well in evey case, except in regard to hogs, which, for some reason, do not appear to bear confinement in the day time, in this climate. This practice is rare at the south. If there is another instance of it in North Carolina, he is not aware of it. The advantages of it, however, are obvious, and sooner or later it will be adopted bv all. Into the stalls of these animals, before they are allowed to enter, mould should be thrown to the depth of one foot. As soon as this has become saturated, a mix ture of virgin soil, leaves and old logs, suf ficiently decayed to break up finely, to gether with the scrapings from beneath and around them, should from time to time be added in sufficient quantities to keep all dry and comfortable. A little shelled corn thrown into the stalls and pens, will induce the hogs to root, and mix up the whole together, in the bet manner, at no cost. When the accumulation la become too great for convenience, let it be taken out and put upon the pile, as above direct ed... Before the animals are again put in,, throw mould, as at first, or ai.y material fitted to absorb and retain the urine and; juices, to the depth of one foot. From mis it win be seen that no manore goes into the pile in a state tending to waste. When required for use, the pile is cot down perpendicularly, as evenlv as nossible. in order to pulverise it well, and make the whole mixture equal. lue writer has now pursued the plan to a greater or less extent for several years. Its advantages are, that it saves the ex pense of all tedious preparations to pre vent the escape of fertilising matter. It is adapted to every man's capacity, am! every man s means. INothmg is ever seen escaping from one of these piles -no ammo nia on a damp or frosty morning ascend ing like smoke from a furnace a case so common where the contents ofstabiesare thrown out without any admixture to ab-. sorb it. The rain nerer falls in more than sufficient quantities to afford the necessary moisture, while the straw al ways to be kept on top, is an effectual protection from sun and wind. Its ten- leocy to promote the health and thriftiness of the animals must be obvious. Their stalls are alvvavs sweet and comfortable. Of course, this plan also saves the expense of building manure houses. Its super iority to the mode of managing these mat ters commonly recommended, that is- following out the barn yard into the form of a ditch, and throwing the manure into it to he-washed away and wasted by rain, wind, and sun, will readily appear. Ani mals should not be permitted to run in a barn yard except in going to and from their places of confinement; and to prevent any loss from this, it should be kept con stantly covered with mould, leaes, straw, &c, which, once ox twice a year, ay be scraped up to put on the heap between the layers of manure. There are numerous other sources from which materials may be drawn to augment and enrich these heaps, such as weeds, the scraping of garden walks, the contents of privies, fowl ami pigeon houses, rotten chips, saw-dust a capital thing to throw into pigsties and cow stables old rags, hog's hair, coal ashes, soap suds, dish wa ter, urine from the chambers, whicn may be poured upon them daily, and last, tho not least, corn cobs. These are sadly wasted at the south Give a really iron 1 o ,nanaer acres oi land, and the corn ii'isa uiaiaiE uuiiicu, ui iiiruwu away up on some of our large southern plantations, and 1 very believe, though as poor as pov erty at the outset, he would in a few years become a very comfortable liver. By this plan, these will of course be preserved. Where corn is fed to hogs and hor-ies in the ear, the cobs will be mixed vp with the materials under foot where they are final ly thrown; when shelled for family use, or other purposes, they should be carefully gathered up and thrown upon the barn yard or into Ihe hog pens A person who has not tried this plan, could hardly conceive how laige a mass of rich fertilizing matter may thus be collect ed in the course of a year from a very few animals, and how greatly, if well followed up, it will add to the value of landed pro perty. It is well known that the whole mass by lying a sufficient time, and at last thoroughly mixed together, will become nearly as valuable as so much raw stable manure. While a place along side of it of equal, perhaps far greater origVnal value, is going perceptibly and rapidly to ruin, the one on which this, or some better sys tem is pursued, will be quite as rapidly improving in beauty, fertility, and the va rious means of comfortable living. The garden,- which at first produced scarcely anything eatable, begins to send forth daily its stores of the finest vegetables; the fields, which produced only sedge grass, and that with much atlo, become loaded with yearly increasing crops of grain; bare unsightly patches arc clothed in rich ver dure; tne orchard, renewed and invigorat ed, teams with fruit sweet to the taste, healthful to the body, and delightful to the eye; everything looks cheerful, smiling, and happy. The very animals participate in the general blessing. Their glossy hides, their sportive motions, their indol ence and their ease testify their comfort, and the enjoyment they find in the abund ance they have thus been instrumental in creating around them.
