The lake at Menzanillo, Mexico, burst
its confines and poured into the see. The
lake was full of alligators and the harbor
of sharks. When the monsters met. a
water battle immediately began, and it
was waged for several days in the pres
ence of most of the people of Mnnzanillo.
For a long time victory trembled in the
balance. but the sharks finally prevailed

agricultnralist, "No manure. no crops,"

For the want of the most rudimentary
knowledge of agricultural facts and
principles, the planters of the South
new for three-quarters of a century
wasted nine or ops of cotton for every one
made, by failing to utilize the chic pro
duct of their fields—cotton seed—for re
turns to the soil, which needs but little
more to maintain its full productivcnesa
forever. Such a crying evil as this would
hardly have beenallowcd to exist so long

John Wentworul on l‘ulhoun and Bon
l John Wentwortlipi Illinoisl delivered
\ a lecture in Chicago recently on remin
i iscences of some great statesmen whom
ihe has known. In it he said 0! Calhoun:
‘ “He invited me to his residence one
‘ evening, and he had me alone. He was
the most charming man in conversation
whom [ever heard. He spoke 0! Chi
cago very interestingly, of which he had
derived considerable information
through his otlicial intercourse with the
officers of Fort Dearhorn while Secretary
‘of War from 1817 to 1825. He spoke of
the West as the natural ally of the
South, and of the Mississippi and uppen
lakes as great inland seas. deserving the i
i same governmental consideration as the a
} oceanic waters. He presented me with a‘
; hook containing his biography ‘
y and speeches with his com
pliments and autograph. I
wrote a narrative of the evening's
conversation and pasted it in the book,
but the Chicago fire has prevented me
from giving you the seuuctive language
of one who had been for years plotting
the dissolution of the union to a young
and inexperienced member of congress.
I overtook Colonel Benton on my way
home, and when he ascertained where I
had been and saw my book, he became
extremely violent, averting that he
could tell me every word that Calhoun
had uttered. He said it was Mr. Cal
houn's custom to early procure inter
views with young men and instil into
their minds the seeds of secession, nulli
flt-ntion and treason. At the close of the
Tyler administration he went into ri
vate life, and there he remained until’he
came to the senate in December, 1845,
where he continued until his death,
March 31, 1850. I heard his last speech,
and was at his funeral."
