T?r i!.o Ad\otu?er.
A pallid moon looks IkrV aad clouds,
That strive to hide her gleamiugs
On rain-drenched flowers that long havo watched
For moon or starry Learnings. N
Alas ! the moon is cold and palo
And not as erst they kuow ker,
When balmy winds stolo trout the South,
And she beamed clear thru' ether.
The dowers droop to earth again,
And lean their petals sadly,
And long for morntng's'genial sua,
'2o smile upon .bom gladly.
' .IV.
Thus our bowed hearts see earthly joys,
In the dark night of sorrow ;
Turn from them to a sweeter hope.
And wait for Heure?'* morrow.
? That Honest Creature, Becky By
How refreshing it is to beheld ber ! Such sim
plicity, such candor, such artlessness ! lteally, I
don't tbiuk the equal of Becky exist? in this Con
federacy. Bc? ky is one of thoso kind-hearted
people who are so much interested in the ?Buirs j
of her fellow-oreatures that she ba6 no spare time |
for her own ; and such is Becky's utter unselfish- j
ness that ?ho devotes her days to propagating the j
most delightful little bits of news; perfectly j
harmless, you know-Becky never talks ?caudal 1 ,
-and when she, generous ero-tu re, drops iu upon I
you some bright morning wben Snooks has gone ?
off to the store, and you ar- left iu disconsolate j
solitude to darn stockings aud meditate, it is so ;
pleasant to sec this honest creature's Itoman Duse j
enter your sitting room. She throws aside that j
cunning little bat with its flouting plum.' -(Beck) i
still wears ringlets aud hats as sue did tu my eer- 1
tain knowledge twenty years ago-but then, you
know, some people Lever grow o:d : " The heart
retains its youtbtul trust";-and draws out from
her pocket a sock-(Becky beiuga pLi'authropint,
H devoted to the soldiers; knitsinuumerable socks;
in fact, i? Vice-president of tbs ".* Soldiers Belief j
uud Aid Association")-aud fulls to work in u,
kia 1 ol' pleasant, trilling, desultory way to tull:
and knit. What a blessing it is to bea good
talker ! As I often tell Snooks, Becky By nu m is
ar. accomplished talker, thu' 1 dou'tverily believe
she knows it, ?be's so unpretending uud bumble
but Becky By nu tn, says I,- would go this world
I'Vtrand nevrr get into trouble: she could entertain j
the old (jkniieoan himself. So winning and j
pleasant ?md artful-I mean artless.
I dun't wish you to think by this that Becky ?j j
?.nc of your so ';, persuading kind of people. Oh,
tu>, she is genuinely candi'!. As she says hcrcell
-.. ?ly dear Mrs. Snooks, I have a great many
faults, but deceit is not one of them. Would to
llaavou"- and hero she clasps ber bauds and
rasia up her eyes so pathetically it always most
makes mc weep- " Would to Heaven 1 wereiioi
s ? impulsive-so apt to forget my.-elt'. and ?pen
my nvnrt ?o tito ga io of the cold end unfeeling !
worid."-end that night. Itell Snooks that night, i
that Becky Byr.um io certainly au injured crea- I
ture, n?.d I know if any body ever did, sho de- J
serves a home iu some celestial sphere abete ;
pcoj-le cnn speak out without fear nf inUcon: ?vue- I
lion. Snooks always says "Yes" in a Very \
sleepy, indifferent kind of a way, tho'I don't i
believe he ever understands what I am snyirg. j
These men are so unjust to poor b-nely women ?
like Becky Byuum. Some of them,* .Mr-. Pi r
kins' husband for one, bail the unkindness tu say >
- she was a meddling, impertinent old maid; but j
if I ever hear Snooks say such a thing I'll, I'll,- |
Well, I don't know what 1 would do, but 1 think j
I wouldn't call bim V Honey" for a mouth, and j
that would we'! nigh kill bim.
I was teated in the aforementioned manner u '
few mornings ago when Becky entered.
'* My de ? Mrs. Snooks," she cried, in hcrgny,
artless wa;, .' I have just run iu to chat a lillie
with you; it's such a comfort to be able to tai k
openly with aDy oue, and you are thc only ?a Iv
tn ibis community I can be honest with, for yu ?
ure caudor itself." So with a little ?.qu< ese and ;
a little kiss, Berky scated horsclf. Off went the ?
cunuiug hat with its black plumos, and out came i
tho inevitable sock, while I sent Anna Maria out ;
of the room-for I don't tbiuk cbiiuren eau up- !
predate Becky's honesty-and we were quite t
ready for our "little chat."
" My dear Mr?. Snooks," ?bc began, " I wnn't
to tell you something which has been on my mind j
a long time, but dared n?t mention it for fear of j
misconstruction. I know it witl lie safe with you." ;
Sho smiled, nodded, threw br.ck thc "clustering j
ringlets," and went on. I don't think I can re- .
peat here what she did say, for it was a strango I
story ; hut as Becky told it I believe it all KS
Qrmly as I do Bulwer's. I am astonished to hesr j
such things of Captain Wiggins, but, HS Becky i
says, "ono-balf tho world never knows what's j
going op in ibe other naif." If this is what's gu- '.
iug on I'm content to daru Snook's socks and ro- !
main in ignorance. To think of such heartless- j
ness. But I don't believe Becky minds ?tat al!
as she confesses herself, she bas bad two ninny I
.'affaire* rfu coeur" to lot it affect ber deeply;'
but sho wishes poor Euphrosyne Huggins' eye? ;
could be opened, for he bad been gallanting and j
visiting ber over since be deserted
" Yet my darling Mrs. Snooks, I wouldn't have 1
you mention it for thc worid. Vou know what a
simple, honest creature I am, and that I coufa?? ;
these things on the impulse nf the moment. I :
would bo utterly miserable if 1 thought poor dear
Eupbrosyne should ever find ii out."
I am ture I never betrayed Becky, hui ?orno- |
body did; and I hear that Captain Wiggins went I
off in a rage to Virgil ia tnt-, morning, sweaiing I
ho nevor ?poke a dozen words to that-I Tont re
peat the hard names bu called poor Becky. That !
silly creature Euphrcsyno Buggins is cry.ug ber 1

I confessed it all to Snooks this evening, r?rd '
instead of sayiug "Yes," In his old sleepy way,
bo begun lo gi? on just like Mrs. Perkin's h lisbon di
and Captain Wiggins : and, tho' I did it with tours
in my eyes, I was obliged to promise never again
to see that "good, honest creature,? Becky By

Thc Chinese Sugar Cane.
5 Y ll ur.
The Chinese Sugar Cano, during this War',
which will hist tito years longer, is debt n.uti
to piny .m important part in Southern Agr:
ctiUure, and to funiisb our peuple and army
with Hie only Syrup within our reach.
The extravagant pretentious claimed fur it, in
1855-"5C, .when first introduced, and when
novelty ?.uve point and emphasis tu enthusi
asm, uiav-now be considered obsolete; and,
henceforth, thia plant will rank, according to
its intrinsic merit, fur its furnge and Syrup
pi tiper! its. During lin 'Blockade, il. will pay
belter limn any crop prowl?, except. Tobacco,
and furnish ?yield ? '* S\rup nearly equal to
that of the \Vest India Sugar Cane. There
fore, its proper culture and tnanulaeture into
Syrup should be generally ki.owu.
' 1st. Its Culture.-lt convenient, select a
rich si?miy bani, or auch lands as are com
monly kJo<vti ns Ht ut mock*, or alluvial study
bottoms. Where tins can't be don?, any bimi
will do. which will tunke cort:, with precisely
similar ivsult--, as to yield,except, that in no
case, are hard still1 clayey la?.ds suite 1 to this
plant, lt is true, ?nd bear ic in mind, that
your land planted will yield as many guUun* \
of 'Sorgho Syrup per uae, us it would pedi*
of corn.
Break np your land broad cast w ith tun:
plows, open furrows fbur feet, apart with j
scooter*, drill one peck of seed tj tLe rere ?
continuously v.\ these rows, and fiver wile !
scooters, by.running up one aide und down j
th? other. lu eight days knock ofl the drill I
rows with boards, if planted i:i March, or iu j
/ire days ii in April, Hud, at any time, aff.tr a I
hard iain, before tho earth bakes. This ?rill
ensure a yoe.'! stand. I have 1'jo acre-, most? j
Iv planted this way. on iii? 21-.I and 2:? i ot j
March, and Um stand is exctUieut, the plants
eotning un in 1 ? t" 1" days, after flooding
rains und much cold weither.
Where -e-d are vrry ?-cure*, 1?}' elf the
drills four fret.apart. '?ro?. ti to l?s.vd every
f ml apart. Mid cover with the fvot lightly,
if you plant in April or Maj ami lb? ground
is damp, soak the seed 24 bouts before p.atil
As tl.e Chinese Sugar Millet niatitrci its
seed aud stalks in fice months you may plant
from thr 2'*Uh nf .Varch lo tie l5//< of May,
bat as in ease with ;;ll cereals, in this latitude,.
the earlier the belier.
The First working i.? boil. delicate and im- j
portant. The plant now is srotill, rescmWps I
gross, and of -slow growth. ?Je ir in mind, j
i oar object, now is to clean the drills, and gel ?
a good stand, upon which your success- t?ir
a large crop essentially depends. Here the
cultivator must use bis good sense, aud judg
ment, .md either put me hoes before the j
plows, if v-ry grassy and the plants small, or
the plows b fife tbe lons if not grassy, as thc
condition of the land may indicate*.
in this way, lie Qins't hoe anil plow it nut
to a stand, say lo two or three stalks pvory
12 or 16.ir.ches, orto one sfaf./c every 8 inches.
1 insist that this is the proper culture, ns
against, the old mode of planting in checks
and giving greater distance. I have proved"
it. by exp?rience, and, besides, all the ch:!r:e>
leristic analogies of the entire millet family
sanction this culture.
UiUe"stund is missing^ irar,splr.ni of
rainy days', when thc laud ia wet. This is
better than replanting. After this, say ia 15
days, give one de'1]' and thorough plowing
and once cr twice af.eiward-, sweep, and lay
lin' crop hy, when wois?-li{gh|

DEATH OK A BRAYE MAN.-We mentioned
in yesterday's Express that Liiut. Gambrill,
of Mississippi] a Confederate scout. w?s kill
ed on Sunday last, about ten miles Irom the
Blackwater River, by thc enemy's videttes.
A gentleman just from late of Vi iglit County
gives us the particulars of Lieut. Gambrili's
death. They stamp him one ol thc bravest
iiie-i this war hus produced. Lieut, li. was
overhauled near Barham's Cross Hoads, Isle
nf Wight-Countyj by twenty nine of theone
tny, who immediately demanded a surrender.
Ile instantly replied, M I never have surren
dered, and never itilend to," at tue sume time
drawing h's revolvers and emptying tiie bar
rels ol' each, belore ?ie full. Seven of the en
emy were killed and two wounded III the

tenant it'll mortally wounded. The siirvivoi*
then repaired to tba house of MYs. Ely, ia the
i mm .-dit<tt6 vipiaity, and told ber that a par
ticular friend of han was lying dead iu the
road a short distasen oil". Upon asking h s
nam-, and being told tliut it waa Lieu:. Ga? .
brill, Mrs. Ely icplied that sne would bury
liim il ii co?I her nie." " You ought lo," rj
j.lilied ibe Yankee, " for a braver man never
lived,'' and they then related to Mrs. Ely the
particulars of h s death, and how desperately
lie defend?! himself. A Lieutenant who
commanded thc gang, said to Mrs. E., that be
thought at one time, Gambnll would have
killed him, but added, that had he done EO,
it would Uiive consoled bis friands to know
that he met. death aube bands of as brave a
man as ever breathed.
True-to lier pledge, Mrs. Ely procured a
cart, nnd ca ling upon a C?iiplu cw ladies in
tho neighborhood, scour d the body, washed
it, and with her own hands, assisted by brr
lady friends, gave the body ol'Lieut. G, sep*
