Fs-rsatsMT CtaMn at the stoat h. Recently I Lave received letters from farmers of the Northwest mak ing inquires about Southern farms. Those letters have been prompted bj articles published in your paper, written bj myself. They say that the winters are too long and evere, and they are for sei'king' homes in a more temperate climate. They are right, for they can find in the South any quantity of lands, producing every variety of crops. All that can be grown 'orth grows luxuriantly South, and a variety of other crops that cannot be grown North. An opinion prevails with many ac the North that the South is oulv adapted for growing of cotton, rice and sugar ; that grain, root crops, and grasses do not do well. A greater error never prevailed, and in time the South will be known as a fine stocc country, and a country of diversified agriculture and pursuits. Y e say to all est, who find it too cold," come to the Sunny South, where you can plow all winter, and stock is easily and cheaply wintered. Tbe average of our win ters here for a. term, is 40 that of summer 84. A colony from Cleve land, Ohio, that are settling South Lowell in North Alabama, to embark in manufacturing and farming, will soon show what the South is capable of making. They have inexhausti ble beds of iron, coal, limestone, and the best of water power, which will be made a source of great wealth. Your correspondent, D. F. J. of 111. talks right in his letter on page 772, when he says, ' What can be grown in warm, dry countries." In Georgia farms have yielded, after properly preparing the land for wheat, over fifty bushels to the acre. The small yields made have not been owing to the climate or land, but to the wretched management 1 will state bow nine-tentns sow wheat at the South, aud when your Northern farmers read it, they wll only wonder how we raise any wheat with your farmers it will not pay as well as I presume. Wheat is sown after corn, or on stalk land, as it is called. In the first place, the corn is not gathered until October ; the stalks are left as they grew, and the ground is generally covered with a heavy crop of grass. Cattle are then turned in to eat as much grass and pickings as possible, and to make the ground plow more readily. In November the ca'tle are turned off, and wheat sowing commences, by sowing tbe seed among the standing corn-stalks and the rank grass, the plow plowing it iu the best that it canl When through this process the crop has been sown, and a rougher and more irregular piece of work can hardly be imagined no uniformity in the plowing some deep and some merely slid over, and in that condi tion it is left until it is harvested ; and with such management it will make, in a lavorable year, lroni twelve to fifteen bushels to the acre. The question may be asked, why not take more pains in preparing the ground well, breaking up before seeding, and harrowing in the seed ? The answer is cotton picking is on hand, and everything is hurried through in or der to 6ave the cotton. But I am of the opinion that there is a medium course to be adopted between the Northern and Southern systems of farming, which would prove more beneficial to the South. Wc do not require such deep plowing with our land, but still we should plow deeper than we now do ; and from what I have seen of some Northern plows with a high reputation among North ern farmers, I think there arc plows manufactured at tbe South which answer onr purpose better. In a word a Northern farmer coming South to farm has much to learn ; lie will soon ascertain that what answer ed well at the North will not answer well berc, and his observations and judgment will lead him to adopt such a course as well result to bis benefit. Diversified farming is what is needed at the South. We can grow profita bly almost any crop, but all is neg lected for cotton; hence provisions are scarce when they should be abundant To shew what can be done with even half preparation and cultivation, and no manuring, I give the gross value of the crop I made this year with five hands, as follows : 20 half enttr-o, worth 1800 bush, corn, " ,.. 260 bush, w beat, " ai.m l,t10 J76 Total, 3,97s And not counting in 300 bushels of oats, the fodder or potato crops. The expenses were nearly half the above amount. Jons II. Df.xt. Will farming- Pjr 1 Eds. . Country Gentleman. I hare read several articles in your paper and others in regard to the high price of farm labor, and the low price of farm produce. Taking one year with another, I believe the price of farm produce is high enough, and wonld yield paying rofit to the farmer if he cultivatedphia land in a farmer-like manner, and obtained the yield in crops which the soil is capa ble of prodacing. I have heard a good many farmers complain about the low prices they were obliged to accept forererything they had to sell, bnt I never beard o ne say that dry goods or groceries, articles he for the family, were too cheap. Yet the producers of these articles pro bably think the prices they get for them are too low. In fact it is a failing that most people Lave, of thinking they have to sell at too cheap rate and buy at too bigtt a price. Farmers must combine, says one, and get better prices, or else give up farming. Ibis looks well in print, and no doubt sounds well to the car of many, but what good would result from it, supposing 6uch a result could be attained f I will answer the ques tion myself. J. be consumer would have to par more for bread and vou wonld go on skinning the soil, taking off crops year after year, as yon have done for years past, and returning little to the land to keep np its fertili ty. What then ? Why, if you can raise the price once, you can do so again, and as your farms become less productive, make the consumer pay for your past and present shiftless mode of fanning. ljut you cannot influence the prices of farm produce ; the law of supply and demand will regulate that matter. But I will tell you what you can do, and you Lave been told the same thing nearly every week in the Country Gentleman. You can raise larger crops, and when you follow the teachings of this and other agricultural papers, every year increasing and keeping tip the fertility of your farms, yon will come to the conclusion that farming will pay, and not bother your brains about the price of farm produce. For you may remark it when and where yon will those who bare the most to say about the low prices of farm produce are those who obtain the smallest crops. In regard to the price of farm labor, there is ft different cry made it is en tirely too high! We cannot obtain skilled help at any price, says one. Here I must take the other side of the question again, ami say that this state of things is chargeable on far mers themselves. You have driven help away from j-ou by pursuing the course you have for many years past How? "in not paying wages enough, in the first place, to keep good, relia ble help on the farm ; and, in the sec ond place, by over-working them. Do you think'lhat a smart farm hand will stay and work for you fourteen and sixteen hours a day for twenty or thirty dollars per month, and eat pork and potatoes three hundred and sixty-five days in the year, when he can get better pay, better fare, and only work eight or ten hours a day ? Farm hands must begin work as soon as it is light enough, two or three hours before breakfast, and work till dark, and then probably have to do the chores about the barn. Do .you wonder that your boys leave you to seek other employment ? I know that, as a general thing, farm help is poor enough, and I also know several farms in such poor condition that un der the present system of working them, if the labor were furnished for nothing, the crops would not pay for working them. Still there is a remedy for all these troubles, and the magic word is, targe crops. You have pre cept and example, facts and figures to guide you ; cultivate less and do it better. Don't play farmer any longer, for vour war of .farming has been; about as much like the real thing as little boys playing soldiering is like real soldiering. 1 have done a little of that kind of farming iu my time, but if I can be forgiven for it I will try to do better in future. Keep more stock, make more manure, or take lettcr care of what is now made, buy fertilizers and improve tbe fertil ity of your farms. Every year get five or ten acres in better condition, so as to have larcer crops, work rea sonable hours, and make home attrac tive, so as to keep the boys with you, and you will soon find that you can afford to pay wages that will secure you good reliable help. L. II. Links. Onr Horse. The condition of horses in the wide crgion where epidemic has prevailed- will not iermit with safety muenneg. ligence in their winter management, It is likely the effects of the di.sease will be seen for some time after the maladv itself has passed. They will be liableTto other forms of sickness, and many valuable animals may be lost if they do not receive the best of care. Among the points to be close ly looked after, thorough grooming is prominent The skin should be kept clean and the pores open, so that the system can throw off the poison the disease has generated, readily. Oth erwise an additional slisrhtlv induc ing cause, as a cold, or chill, may throw it back on the vital organs and result in serious derangement Well ventirated stables should be provided and great care taken not to expose the animals to storms, or if so expos ed, to protect them thoroughly from a chill until they are dry and rested. The food should be varied and of a nature to give strength and keep the, Itoteels moderately loose. Farmers who have been in the hab it of taking their horses off grain on the approach of winter, should not now follow their usual custom, but give in addition to hay, some more nutritious but not highly stimulating food. Carrots are extremely valua ble. So also are potatoes, an occa sional feed of which, say twice a week, a half peck at a feed will be found beneficial under almost any cir cumstances during the winter. Oat meal, or meal made from a mixture of oats and corn, equal parts ! found a good feed. Instead of hay, give horses good, bright oats traw, to which add ft slight increase of chopped feed, and their chances for escaping anything ljke a chronic cough are vastly improved. The best practice with the disease has been to sustain the urengtn ana ap petite of the sick animals, by cooling, yet nutritious . food, grooming well, giving moderate exercise in the mid dle of the day, and keeping" them com fortable in the stable. In fact itis best for the interest of all horse owners to adopt the treatment alwve indicated, as a permanent practice. Draft IIrr. The Prarie Farmer savs on this subject: Tbe market for these is not half supplied, although as reliable ana constant as that for good ueci, or pork or any other commodity of hu man consumption, A nan or inrec quartcrs blood rerchcron or Clydes dale is always a 6taple cash article, is sound and free from vice. Any sound marc of mixed blood, part Morgan or thorough-bred, or Canadian or what not any of the common marcs of the country, even if somewhat below medium size, if bred by a full Wood Norman, Percheron or Clydesdale stallion, will, ninety nine times in a hundred, produce a colt which, with ft mate or without one, will sell for two or three hun dred dollars, at four or Eve years old. Breeding in this way, the best females may be retained by the owners for further use in the ftud, and in a com paratively fhort time a sufficient num ber of grade blood mares may be ob tained to produce an annual income. just 53 certainly as bonds and mort gages, and much larger, in compari son with the capital invested. Con ducted by any careful man of aver age intelligence, there is no hazard or experiment about such an operation. The opinion, once quite prevalent that the dam must be larger than the sire or failure will sure follow, has exploded on trial. It may be better that it should be so, but it is not in dispensable. Marcs that may now be bought in this region at from sev enty Eve to one hundred and twenty. five dollars, are good enough to start with, and there is probably no local i ty in the United States where such an enterprise would not pay. It would certainly do so anywhere in the north, west or south. Farming aa l( I. The farmer has for all time been on individual dependent on storm and sunshine, and at the same time often the victim of the very elements which contribute so much to their prosperi ty. These things have niado him, in reality, feel that he is the creature of circumstances, and that tbe smiles and frowns of heaven have quite as much or more to do with his crop than his individual foresight and la- tar. 1 his state of things has been productive, in many instances, of a sort of discouragement that in many cases is calculated to drivo workers from the farm. A study of this subject convinces most men that farming, after all is one of tbe sciences, and as a science ranks high ; and it is imperative that he Mho would attempt to follow, his calling, must make op his mind to be come ft student in the great school where is taught not only the nature of soils, but the production of the 6oils. Study will reveal the fact, and any soil can be made productive, un der nearly all circumstances, and that to successfully pursue the high and noble science, we must devote our selves diligently to the work of prq aration. Agriculture is, and always has been, a profitable pursuit, even in the faee of the many drawbacks enumer ated. I he farmer has grown ncu , while the tradesman has grown poor, side by side these two callings may be judged, and wo leave it to any fair minded man, if the farmer has not al ways a better result ; the same encr-o-rn1 thi Mine amount of money form will, in nine cases out of ten, prove the most successful ; not withstanding the many difficulties, and particularly the great waste and wretchedly bad management of many farmers, wc see a steady growth in our agricultural hoards. The coun try is growing rich from the grain made on the farm, and these grains are tbe results, not of good manage ment, but from the factofthe demand made for the products of agriculture. Imparlance ef Having- Uoosl Barns The American Stoc-k Journal says: The word barn is of Saxou origin. It is derived from here, barley, and ern, a close place or repository. In the earlier history of mankind, it seems to have a very limited applica tion. Any structure adapted to the storing of grain, was defined by this term. In later years the word has received a very much wider applica tion. It embraces a structure, of whatever capacity, designed for-stor ing farm crops and protecting stock of whatever description. Had we time it might be deeply interesting and highly instructive to trace the progress iu.tbe construction of barns during the last 150 years. In a climate so changeable as ours, the proper care and stabling of do mestic animals arc of more impor tance to their health and thrift than a large number of farmers seem practi cally to admit Fall, winter, and spring storms of rain, snow and sleet not unirequently last two davs and sometimes three. No human, prudent farmer would leave so important and valuable do mestic stock as horses and cattle ex posed to sucL storms during the day or night, aud if his stables are well liirhted. dry comfortable and suffi ciently ventilated, his stock will en dure the confinement cheerfully and with no desire to be out-doors. Besides, a good barn will contribute to the convenience of the laborers and mparts an air of thrift, neatness and order to the entire place that never fails to favorably impress all who visit it Light, warmth and ventila tion are indispensable to the health, and development of animals, and these conditions should be found in every stable ; tbe preservation of farm implements, harness Sic. ; con venience in working and performing numberless jobs about the place ; a safe and commodious reception for grain, fodder Ac. ; many a farmer ioses more than enough grain in the course of live or six years, to say nothing of wbat is saved by the ease and expedition in feeding the stock, these are some of the advantages that will be derived from a good barn. Then, too, an ample well-arranged building of this kind will supply the place of several other unsightly structures which occupy space and necessitate trouble. But is it urged that it is expensive to erect such a building. I bey need not cost ex travagantly and the advantage and convenience resulting from tbcm, de monstrate that it is true economy to have them. Better do without some thing else and secure neat convenient stable and barn ; each succeeding sea son will prove more clearly the wis dom of the investment. When cattle arc kept at pasture, at least during the day time in summer, it should be a very good reason that induces a farmer to so place bis barn that he cannot have the yard on the warmest and sunniest side of it Or dinarily the coldest winds of winter blow from the north and northwest, while tbe warmth of the morning sun in winter falls best into nooks where lookout is toward the southeast. Therefore a southeast exposure is usually the best If there are to be several buildings, they should be so arranged as to shelter the yard from the north and west Shelter from the east is not so important, but if it can be conveniently procured it has a cer tain advantage, if so arranged as to allow the early morning sun to fall in the yard. A close fence, six or seven feet high would be better than a high building. When a shed is to be used build the barn on tbe north side and the shed on the west side of the yard or it will be better to have a shed all around tbe barn yard which will not only pay largely in increased comfort to the stock but will also protect and shelter the manure. After the cattle are turned out in the spring the manure should all be piled under the shed. Male tfee Farm. The American Slock Journal says: There always has been a great deal of prejudice in some parts of the country in regard to using mules on the farm. It is .true if they are not properly handled and broken in the first place they are apt to be some what unruly at times, but not more so than some horses, and if properly broken and kindly eared for, they are not nearly ho liable to run away or frighten as horses. It is true they do not look so well to a carriage as horses, but where economy is consul ted much is to bo said in favor of the mule, as it does not cost much over one half the amount to feed and shoe a pair of mules for oncryear, that it does a pair of horses, and, taking the year through they will do more work ; besides this, they will last twice as long. These are all important considera tions in determining the most econo mical to use on a farm. Every far mer, in moderate or straightened cir cumstances, is willing to forego some thing in the matter of pleasure if thereby his gains are greater. If an animal can be raised to the age of usefulness, for lesa expense, can be kept after that time on cheaper food, if his sickness and shoeing cost the owner less money, and his working years are greater, a farmer can well j afford to accept some drawbacks in the matter of appearance or ease of management But there are many purposes for which tbe mule is al most universally regarded as the superior of the horse. One 9uch em ployment is plowing corn, potatoes and other cultivated crops. For this purpose the mule has many advanta ges, llis feet are small and bis dis position is to put them down very nearly in a line. This being the case he seldom injuries ridges, hills or crops by treading on them. The plowing of cultivated crops roust be attended to during the severest heat of summer. Horses are rendered more impatient by insects, and are less able to endure the extreme heat of the weather than mules ; their skin is also easier chafed and they are much more liable to be laid up at the most important period of the year by various diseases that ore then preva lent . , In tbe south the mule is almost ex clusively employed for plantation la bor, as well as for draft purposes on the road. For plowing cotton, corn and tobacco, or even for turning the shallow furrows, generally seen there in the grain fields, or those appropri ated to cultivated crops, the mule seems singularly adapted His gait is fast enough for his negro driver, whether on the turnpike or in the fur row. He is not epicurian in his tastes, and warm weather agrees with him. A mule in a cotton field is tbe right thing in the right place. Breeding mules for the cotton and sugar plantations of tbe south has long been a very profitable branch of business in the Blue Grass regions iu Kentucky. They are taken south in droves, or are transported in cars or on boats. New Orleans, Mobile and Atlanta are now the leading mule markets. Grade rattle. Many of our farmers arc deterred from tho introduction of improved blood into their herds )f cattle by the immense outlay of money necessary to engage in any extensive scale in the propagation of thoroughbred stock. While it is true that it re quires a handsome capital to embark successfully in the raising of blooded stock, it does not involve much ex pense to produce grades that are of as much practical value to the pro ducer, as those of pure blood. We do not mean to disparage in the least the production of thorough bred stock, for unless we have those who engage in this, our facilities for secur ing a high order of grades must soon disappear. Yet men of limited means must advance their interests as they can. Let them then invest $150 or $200 in a Shorthorn bull calf of pure blood ; not a grade, for it is im possible to perpetuate the desirable characteristics of a race of cattle by propagation from a grade, however deep in the blood ; but from even a fair quality of native cows, bred to a pure Shorthorn, we may get a class of grades that for size, weight, rapid growth, and taking on of flesh, arc quite the equal of thoroughbreds. And it is this fact that misleads so many, causin? them to suppose that a grade is equally good to breed from. I or the butcher a good grade is nearly or quite as good as thorough breds; for propagation be is absolutely worthless. Kansas Sptrit. Filial Love Among the Indian. A correspondent of a San Francisco naiier. writing lroni tue scene ot tnc Modoc war in Oregon, says: The Indian in charge of this band rejoices in the euphonious name of "Shack astv Jim." Jle is but twentv-five vears old, but is regarded in this neighborhood as next to Sear Charley, the most desperate warrior of the Modoc tribe, lie is moreover a dead shot with a rifle, as indeed, are all the Indians here, being able to shoot the eye-ball out of a squirrel, at 100 yards, nine times out of ten. He has a bitter hatred towards the whites, and has only been held in check thus far by reason of his plight ed word to Fairchild and others. Yesterday a Government wagon ar rived from Fort Klamath to take the Indians to the Reservation: and ob serving this, and knowing that further delay wu imposiblo "Jiiu" and his warriors left for Capt. Jack's camp. Before going however the gentle Shack made some domestic prepara tions. First, ho packed up his wife's clothes and saddled her pony;' and then he dressed the papooses in their very best, and having done this he murdered his mother. The goo d old lady had been suffering for some time with neuralgic gout, and was hardly able to travel. The Indian doctors had labored long aud faithfully to cure her but all in vain. She was quite old, being seventy years, more or less, and therefore, according to tbe Indian faith, had well nigh out lived her usefulness. She could not ride, and Jim was too good a son to leave her behind to the tender mer cies of the whites. There was only one thing to do, and that was to mur der her with his own trusty hunting knife; therefore, Jim ended the old lady's sufferings, and strapping ber body across the back of a pony, tbe tribe left for Jack's camp. Once there the funeral rites will be perform ed and all will go lovely. Notwith standing, Jim refused to leave his mother behind, he did permit old "onccpey" ana nair dozen young squaws and children to remain. Old "Sheepey" is upward of eighty. He is the former Chief of this section of the tribe and of course he could not be killed. He was, therefore, left be hind with a half dozen squaws to take care of him. This sudden and unexpected move ment of these Indians created wide spread alarm. Mr. Fairchild at once sent his family into Yrcka, seventy miles distant, and got his vaqueros to gether, and made tue most active pre parations for defence. To-day, when the Chronicle expedition rode up, the place looked like a fortification. Hen strode about with rifles lashed to their backs, revolvers strapped to their hips, and their wild mustangs saddled and bridled and ready for action in case it should be necessary to run. Fair child, who has hitherto regarded the Modoc demonstration as a mere mur derous riot, is now tboronghly alarm eu. lie regards bis own place as in imminent danger, and a glance at the map will convince any one that bis fears are well founded. Hot Creek is two miles from the southeastern cor ner of Little Klamoth, and is the nearest ranch now to Capt Jack's band. The military are off in another direction, being north, at the mouth of lost river. Capt Jack's camp and Fairchild's camp form the base of an obtuse angle, of which the military camp is the apex. So it will be seen that tho troops arc no protection whatever. A hotel clerk who was banged up in a railroad accident recently, sued the company for $20,000 for damace to his check, but the Judire told the jury he "did not want to influence them in their verdict, but thought ten cents would bo an ample sum for the injury done. ? j !,;''' i ... : . .::w It is asserted on authority that en tire droves of beef cattle reaching our great Eastern markets by rail, al though on their arrival , choking with thirst, and at the point of death, from hunger, are prevented from eating and drinking, lest their increased weight might; add c, per pound to their value.
