FRIDAY EVENING. SKPT. 20, 1871. timely extract: But a second imperative need ol the Smith, as we nee it, is diversified industry. Wo arc aware that Mr. Ruskin, quitting tlio domain of Art Criticism, for which he possesses tlie preeminent endowment of keen aptitudes, wide observation, and pa tient study of nature, protracted residence amongst the greatest scenes and works of both art and nature, together with a won derful command of eloquent, glowing and picturesque language, has of late years taken to preaching sermons upon political economy. As was to be expected, he pro pounds some wild views upon the great social and economic problems of tho ago. We find him contending that each nation and each region should ascertain the special pursuits to which it is adapted by soil, pe culiarities of national character, and bent of natural inclination. To that speciality he maintains that all its energies should be devoted, and that other nations, not thus adapted to this particular pursuit, should wisely encourage its aspiring neighbor to its fullest and tinest productivity, by giving it a monopoly of the commodity in ques tion, and abstaining from any rivalry in its manufacture. Thus he would say, perhaps, let England (rive us iron, France silks, Belgium laces and carpets, Germany cloths, the United States agricultural implements and cotton. Now this theory of a mighty joint-stock co operative division of international labor and industry, might well answer for a world I which the unshadowed splendors of a nial day are radiantly shining, lint it i advanced for the facts as they exist. n Napoleon was in the height of his iry genius, planning the subjugation of po and the establishment of universal irchy, a copy of Fourier's first work icial Science was put into his hands, o earth must bo plowed by the sword," he, " before it can produce such har as this man dreams of. So of Mr. Lin's fine-spun theories. AYe must ac humanity as we find it. Nations arc yet ready to enter a grand Trades n. Wars will come, and woo to the that by a too exclusive devotion to any one pursuit, has crippled its powers o self-maintainance in the great struggle fo I:ional existence. I'he South shouid seek other outlets fo energies and other channels for its capi , besides tlie narrow path along which its lealthily-stiinulatod cotton culture has lied with the frantic speed of the .Missis pi through some crumbling ci-evas. . n mighty banks, spreading desolation in its weltering way. No great community can prosper, in the race of modern civiliza tion, without the judicious cultivation of tl mechanic arts. Ucologists and archaeolo gists trace the progressive eras of humai development in tlie successive epochs of llie stone, the bronze, the iron age. Sir Join Lubbock's primitive man and Mr. Darwin's descendant of arboreal progenitors, ha* equally advanced along the line of Ihe mo chanic arts, to the high estate of moder. culture. Tho city of Philadelphia, alone gives employment to 120,000 men and wo men engaged in manufacture—a nuinbe larger, perhaps, than can be found similarly occupied in the entire .South, Hero is one secret of Northern success in materia growth. Everywhere we see factories am machine shops. The air is laden witl smoke of furnaces and the ear saluted witl whirr and clang of busy machinery. The Southern people need similar enterprise multiplied amongst them. The low tha liave grown up there have proved very sue cessful. The main difficulty is to tear the rura population from tlieir life-long devotion to the one product of the soil to which they have been always accustomed. Their ar gument is short and incisive, if not conclu sive : "Wo know all about cotton plant ing. It made us in the past, rich and pros perous. We know nothing of your milk and furnaces, your enginery and shops Therefore, we will none of them." Thi !;ic needs corruption. Sound in should be disseminated broad cry manufacturing enterprise encouraged. Capital should be such undertakings. To one un „to Southern life, tliesubservien section to the great manulactur ihments of the world is absolute vable. A Southern fanner put helve into his axe, the timbe was originally cut in tiie South >rth, there manufactured and re lint for his use. lie cuts dowi ,vith a Collin's axe, turns uji th Northern plow, chops out hi l a New York hoe, gins the sta gin of New England manufac ■i it with Pennsylvania iron, haul ■arohouse on a Concord wagon it to market upon (farther] orm cars, while his small gra ~ reshed, and prepared for sale b Yankee implements. Nor is th • the arena of household eeom ml the Southerner cooking witl stove, eating from Boston earth iitting his food with Moridei ling his soup with Gorham Com d ware, by the light of a petro , made, chimney and all, under canopy of Pittsburg smoke personal apparel, and our firs i decked out in Yankee muslin lchusetts ribbons in their hair Island ear-bobs in their ears • dresses are held together b) .t buttons, vvaterbury hooks am 'ohoes ping. Thus from shoe lair-pins there is a mortifying de ipon Northern thrift and indus lid we inquire into the highe intellectual life, we find book pen and ink, newspapers ah< , mainly furnished by tho Norlh Now until this state of utte ihall have been radically altera cannot hope to assert its co-equal ity and maintain its claims, amidst free am prosperous communities. aa, —_— [From it Corretpondence oi the Whig.] The Belmont Vine)uril—The Blno llldse fo Fruit. Erunt Eoyal, September 25. —The Be mont vineyard—the property of Mr. M. B Buck, lies on a spur of the Blue Jtidgo, mile south of Front Koyal. It is the mos extensive vineyard in the State. It cover many acres about half way up the nioun tain. The soil is a sort of mountain allu vium—composed of the detritus of folds par, which greatly abounds, and. which i a perpetual source of fertility. This is the character of a large portion of the Bin Ititlge slopes, and is admirably adapted to the production of fruits. It needs no un derdraining—the grapes do not mildew— and the most delicate apples attain tin highest perfection. This may be said o the entire Blue liidge range fi-om the Poto mac to Georgia. The climate is everywhere favorable—the soil and exposure variou. and suited especially to the grape, the apple the peach and pear. 1 regard Mr. Buck as tlie most useful 1 .ti/en of Virginia. He was the first te teat the capacity and adaptability of this region to fruits, and particularly to grapes All his experiments, conducted at his ow expense, will enure to the profit of the pul lie, lie takes a new variety of grape, am alter years of trial, ascertains its virtues o dcl_u, and the result of his labors is a encouragement or warning to others. This i coueUluu---. him _ K_*t puhlk l_i_l_i..,. < )no has only to ramble through his mag nificent orchards of apples and peaches ami over his vim-clad hills, freighted with pur e grapes, to be impressed with a sense of i what may be achieved by energy and into] .■•■!. As tho Archangel said to Allan, hen praising tin- repast of fruit set before him by Eve: Tli'iui_ in ll_v*i) r.i tre_ Of Lite nmbroMiil Irnim. bear, unit vill«* Vii-ld nectar: ilinn-li from oil' boogha 11 ;, mm II .- brush nvlUllu.iiis dows, and lind tie- grouud Cover'd with pearly grain ; yel find hath here "arivd hi* bounty so with new doUghl , As may compare with Heaven. The varieties which Mr. Buck is now sing, and thinks highly of, are thcCataw i, the Ives, the ('uncord, Norton Seedling id the Delaware. The first and last make lute wines; the other three red. The Norton promises a wine, when matured by age, comparablo to the Burgundy. The Ives also promises well. The ('uncord, which is a very hardy and prolific grape, yields largely in juice, and will make a good table beverage. Mr. Paid had, before com ing to Mr. Buck's, made experiments with the Cunningham, a native of Cumberland or Prince Edward, aud has a very high opinion of its merits. While very much like the Norton in appearance, it makes a delicate and beautiful white wine. Though much has been done by Mr. Buck, much remains to be done. Other varieties must be tested, and in different soils and exposures. A. native of France, who had cultivated the grape, both at home and here, expressed tho opinion to tho wri ter that a northern exposure, at least iv middle and tidewater Virginia, would pro bably be better than a southern one. But his is of the details, which time and exper iment must determine. Mr. Buck's enthusiasm over the adapta bility of tho southern slope of tho Blue Hidge to fruit culture is intense. For that purpose, especially for grapes and appti -, lie regards it as the choice portion of the intinent. In quantity and size, the Pa cific slope may surpass it, but in delicacy of flavor, it has no rival. The apple may be made quite as great a source of profit M tho grape. The varieties of highest quality here alone have their home. Tho Albe marle pippin, the most fastidious of its genus, and, when in perfection, unsur lassed hy the golden fruit of the llesperides, is found nowhere else. And even hero it is very choice in soil and exposure. A railroad from this point to Richmond would on many accounts be a great public blessing. It would link this important portion of the Commonwealth to the capital —make direct communication with V\ est em Pennsylvania, and open the great fruit region of the Blue liidge "To the outside orld, and vastly enhance its value. Can | Richmond do nothing to secure such a con minatiou '.' It is worthy of its serious nsideration. E.
