On the subject of Pork Raising, which we
consider of the utmost importance in the sub
?istence of our army, as also tho ^.people at
home, we present our readers the' following
valuable article,' written by a correspondent
o? Soil of the South, ia 1800, but its truths
are eanally applicable at this time, and even
more so. Read, and profit by what you read .
" Du. Cwi'D-rDear Sir :-Bacon Raised'
entirely on corn in the cotton-growing States,
has been found by most, if not all, who have
tried it, to be more expensive than if purcuas
ed fromthe grain growing regions. That is/
.the labor required to produce the corn to
raise the bacon would, if applied to the pro
duction uf.co.t/tc.n, make more cotton than the
bacon would seri for. Hence the . necessity
ifur.anhatitutiug other nutritious Substances
to rendeftl tothe interest of the cotton plan
ter to raise his own bacon and not be depen
. dent upon others that he may not prove the
. victim of extortions from the monopoly that
would iollow^erc all to abandon the idea of
raising their^fcm bacon.
"I now come to the object of this com
munication, which is to poiut ont a few of
the xodes of raising bacon without much
corn, if any. During'September I sow dowu
rye ior grain pastures, or if<*Bot this I do so in
October. After my hogs have gleaned the
peagroan?and potato fields, I turn my sows
and pigs on green rye and later in the spring
on green oats ; this will, save half com and
keep them .in better order tbau with double
the corn without the produce. Tbis course
of feeding continues say five months, at hali
allowance makes two and a haK months corn
feeding. This brings us to. harvest fields
plums, peaches, armies, mulberries, which last
till November and afford food that . will not
only support but fatten a hog almost as fat
as he can be madete We place our fattening
hogs in the pea nelda in October^ which with
the aid of potatoes^and, ground peas, prepare
*jur bogs for bacon without any com af all.
M We kill year old hoj;a and leas-ev"en (T.
mouths old ff we have plenty ol pams and po
tatoes to fatten them, which wc usually do.
and can say from experience that it is folly
to keep hog? f*o winters. Those who have
no orchards, and DO experience ia their bene
fit to hogs, would bc surprised to kuow hovr '
much advantage those possess who. own theta
as a succession of fruit of thc above varieties
can be bad for 5 mouth? or mote in which!
not one grain of corn need \m fed away dar- I
jog tho time, and no labor in fttfcdiug as ?ur
l'0g8 remain in tho orchards: all the time.
"Nie cultivate the ground pea so as i?ot tb in
terfere wirb the cotton. We picpate th"'laud
with fifteen-inch scooters, tts ducp .?s. ora?
horse can pull, in lUc t'arly spring or wintfcx.
Any time in May, when the land is we; enough
to bring thc-p?a up without ?,n additional *r.p
ply of rain, plant tu three feet; rows' drilled
one and a half ur two feet api?.r&,.,of lite shell
g? poa, and cover wku a scoter furrow.
"When up and grassy, run round them with a
sweep large enough to clean the row: Let
them gland 4P your coru "and cotton needs
your attention until you lay by, ' then sweep
t/bcm again and giv? them a good hoeing,
which is ali thc* work they require. I.some
times plant late in May and m.-.ke fine gp Mind
peas at a cost almost nomiaah ?.s ?och quan
tities eau be :'j.ide io the o?fe,'ajjd as they dc
wed o:. pev ? land that Wuul pay to cultivate
I? corn or cotton.
Mode ?rf saving 's'eei?- puira^?T^prwhen
1'u8t ripe, torn them over to dry; when dry
taul the vines home and house, or make rail
pens in the patch, put them under cover until
cotton picking is over. , I then shell from tho
vines enough lor seeiand foed the roots to
my sows and pigs* while on green pasture,
which will be found, by any ono that tries it,
cheaper than corn, as an acre will make a
hundred bushels. One-fourth of the land in
green pastures and orchards, and ground-peas,
will raise and fatten hogs and not require
one-tenth tbe?abor, which, aided by wheat, rye
and' ca"!s in the ripe state, when orchards are
not convenient, will be found cheaper than
corn, and consequently more palatable, as the
rye will remain in the held till the other two
grains are entirely gone, and even till No
vember some years, - and be sound and good,
upon which hogs will remain in fine growing
order. Besides the :advantages in point of
economy and convenience, let. it be remember
ed that these , substitutes for corn, as above
described, actually rest the land and do not
keep up the system of exhaustion which is
continually goiui- on in the process of mak
ing corn and cotton alone ; hence I say r-very
wise patriotic planter should torn a portion of
bis attention tn orchards, and raise more grain .
and peas and potatoes, and also raise his own
manure, and strive to be independent in all
things as much so as possible in order to pro
mote his own and the happiness, of' his ne
groes, for plenty of good home raised bacon,
plenty of fruit, ?c., wth save many a- Doctor's
bill, and prove beneficial in every other aspect
of the question."
What Should bc Done.
There are a great many things Which we
ought to do and which we put oil' from-iime
to time, through negligence or indifference,
but thero is something cow present- to us
which admits of nd, delay a's it is matter of
vital importance, demanding immediate at
tention, i lanting time is now upon us, and
we cannot too earnestly urge upon our.people
the great and pressing necessity of plauting
something on every spot ot ground. Tho army
and the people at home must be clothed and
fed, and ourplanters and farmers must see to
it that they do their whole duty in this respect.
There.is no danger i to bc' apprehended from
Mr. Lincoln and his horde of satellites, but
serious consequences would result from a
scarcity of provisions, and'the only way to
efitctually guard against such a direful ca
lamity is for every maa who has a patch of
groutid to act as if the safety of himself and
family depended upon the amount of vegeta
bles and root crop3 ho could raise. Plaut
corn, vegetables of all kindsiu the present
scarcity of meat will be most acceptable, and-,
plant as many potatoes ay possible as "the}',
are of great importance. One acre well cul
tivated aa ai garden, will go furtfier towards
subsisting a family tbau ten acres as a field
crop. Plant pea?, beans, squashes, tomatoes,
turnips, cabbages, carroto, etc. The greatest
industry should be exercised to grow provid
ions for man and beast during the present
year, as the wants of the country will require
all that can be raised. Lee us all then be
stir ourselves-'m this good work, as there will '"'
he an urausual demand for provisions of all ?
kiuds, and our success iu a measure depends
upon keeping the army well clothed and fed.
Now is tho-ifme to examine all of your bec- ,
hives, see that they are all well cleared of i
webs and other litter, see that each hive bas a '<
healthy queen, and if any hive is found' to be 1
quccnless, 'jive them a comb that has worker,
brood eggs, etc., in the cells. If any hive j
has di*d ard left brood comb it'may now be
profita!.ly used among the new swarms: give /
each new colony a few frames and you will ]
find that they will be easier hived and will t
not get so reduced in numbers, a? they will t
commence rearing workers at once ; drone or ?
comb that lina large cells should not be used
in the brood hives, as it only tends to raiss a -
host of droits or consumers when a verv few
will answer al! the requirements of ? noble
apiary. Put on ail of your 'tool hives boxes -
and g!?dsesj put so>- e whito comb" in each ii"
you have ir, if not, put a piece of any comb
you caa get. it is always bec.t to have comb
in each il posible.
April is now here and the bees are now t
beginnii g io rear their young and to gather
honey; you will bear in mind lo attend to ^
them at once, fo?if you put ?ft u&tii to mor- -?
row it will nevar come, but your bees .will' g
take wings aud fly away, and you will raise
but tittle boney, llave your bee benches and
bee hives in-readit:ess-*kcep your Lives cool.
In hiving us? the hive dry; there is no use
washing the hive with anything. As soon as
a swarm ha$ alighted give them a hive at
once, and ii' y<>u have mauy hives in close
proximity have them enter as fast as possible, j
If others commence swarming put a clean
sheet over?hiim until the others have settled: ,
If your bees seem to enter slow, you will take <
a flat stielt* or spoon and nat a, few to the en <
trance of hive ; they will soon raise that hum -I
that is so well known to Apiarians, and means ;]
that they have found a horne* They will raise !
this hum ?uy time if you wllLspreventtheir ?
entering their hive for a few minutes, or Tf ,
you close the hive and then let them fly. i
Let all your-movements he 6?ow in mana- '
gmg bees, avoid the least jar, have.your hives ;
so as they will face the southeast, "and so the
sun will shine on them early in the morning.
Use good hives of sound material. I use the
Langstroth hive, and it rs tho best that I have
ever used. Po sure to have your hlvei? well
protected from the sun. A very Btrong hive 1
with a plenty of combs will fill in eight or ten
days if the season is favorLIe, at the heighth 1
of honey harvest. The way to prosper in bees
is to keep strong stocks and you will be sure j
to be righ:. If you will blow-cotton rag smoke ,
in the entrance of a hive, they will" retreat, i
when they may, in a minute or two, be taken i
out as harmless as so many house flies, or
they will au?er you to do them as your please,
if you do not jar them, though, sometimes,
there wijrt bo a few cross ones who seem de- ?
termined to sting whatever it cost them. If
orre stings you use peppermint on the wound,
or some honey will do.
