" Ho that by the Plow would thrive, EimwH mu't either hold or drive." Fi om ike Con*tiiutionnli?t. The Ajusta Fertilizing Company The necessity of enriching the soil was never greater than at present. So poten tia! has fjeen this requirement that mill ions of collars were expended, last sea son, for various kinds of manure. Near ly every dollar of this money went North ward ; and, we are sorry to say, it did not secure, in all cases, a profitable return for such very hard cash. We should judge, from numerous complaints, that many of the manipulated manures were cross impositions. The desire to grow rich suddenly ts, probably, as conspicu ous in this line of busiuess as in nearly all others, and so, a number of confiding planters had to pay dearly for credulity. ' Under such circumstances, we are pleas ed to learn that a Company has been formed in Augusta to supply the agricul turaPcommunity with a genuine fertili zer, and one, too, within the reach of all. The well-known integrity of the gentle men engaged in this enterprise, and the materials within their grasp, warrant the assumption that the article offered to the public is what it represents to be. The nitre-beds of the Confederacy have been purchased and become the bases of an extensive development. Beside these rich deposits, valuable collections of peat have been discovered in the immediate vicini ty, and appropriated and worked with success. Jn the process of manufacture, true Southern hospitaTtty is practiced. There are no secrets and no mysteries. All interested aie invited to an investi gation, and the Company is determined to deserve everything it wins in the way of encomium or trade. To enable the planter to restore to the soil that which has been extracted from it by small grain, cotton, corn, vegeta bles, &c, the Company, with an enthusi astic and commendable diligence, has its agents scatteied broadcast, engaged in ransacking the city and county for all the clements which enter into the composi tion of plants. The refuse of the city is carefully removed and premiums offered to all fur articles, which, hitherto consid ered nuisances, are made immensely val uable when brought under the dominion of science. A two-fold benefit is thus produced. The city is rendered healthy by the scrupulous removal of all noxious matter ; and the soil is enriched by those very materials which cumbered the earth and were an offense to all. A movement of*this kind is one in the rig', t direction. It is a bold and honorable attempt to en courage Southern independence and an example for other branches of industry in the important item of keeping thc money of our people at home. The manures produced by thc Augus ta Fertilizing Company have ceased to be experiments. They are now of es tablished reputation, and those who were so fortunate as to try them, during last year, have reaped a substantial har vest. The chemist of this company is Gene ral Rains, whose fame is not limited to any narrow area, but is familiar to the Old as well as to the New World. With such a directing genius, in conjunction with such an honorable company, there ?6 no such word as fail. All the requisites of success have been combined, and we feel convinced that the progress of the enterprise will be commensurate with its undoubted excellence. The attention of all concerned in agri culture, who read these lines, is directed to" the subjoined remarks, which proceed from one whose clear understanding, critr ical research and long experience entitle him to a hearing. Gen. M. C. M. Ham mond thus writes of-the Augusta Fer tilizing Company and the result of its la bors : u A hiyh cultivation, on less land, with more manure, is the great object of modern tdlage.'' If this remark be true in a general sense, it is especially applicable to the South, where capital is greatly reduced and labor impaired and uncertain ; where large plantations and annual clearings to supersede the worn or exhausted laud are no longer practicable, and where the utmost production from present open fields has become necessary for subsist ence. The prime question is, where to pro cure the least costly and most* effective fertilizer?-Heretofore, we have import ed, at high prices, many kinds of manures -Peruvian and other guanos, phosphates and other saline compounds, raw and dis solved bones, etc. The larger portions of these have been specifics and applicable properly to soils containing all the other ingredients, and requiring only these com paratively few of the many elements de manded for tbs perfect growth of plants. These requirements of the plants have been left generally to conjecture-some times have been discovered by often re peated experiments, and, only on rare oc casions, by analysing the soils. But the deficiencies cannot be ascer tained every where. It is utterly impos sible, from want of skill and means, te obtain analyses of every one's fields or farm ; and, without these, the selection of special-fertilizers or specifies;-few com bining more than five or six of the twelve or fifteen substances essential for vigor ous vegetation-is mainly guess work. Even the mixture of several of these, per formed by certain planters at an outlay of labor, time and expense, while an improvement on the application of simple manures, has not entirely obviated the difficulty. The desideratum is a concentrated m.*?. nure, combining all the elements in all plants cultivated in field and garden, in a state of assimilation, of ea*y transporta tion, and at a price which the most of our people can command. Farm-yard (including stable) manure, especially of animals fed on grain as well as Jong forage, and properly saved, pos sesses all the nutriment needed by plants. And this is universally saved, after some fashion, and used. But it is too bulky for our diminished horse power, insuffi cient in quantity, and promises to decrease surely under tho aggressions upon stock by the freed people. Night soil is equally effective. But among us I am not aware that the first step bas been taken to rival the Chinese in their careful preservation and use of this valuable material. Its value is well known io inie?ige?t planters, and has been I? urgently commended to their attenti for more than twenty years. Nccess will some day overcome the prejudice its manipulation, and the manufactu will contrive means to collect and p pare it as a fertilizer. Until then, Northern poudrette will continue to applied, which is the same thing in a st comparatively emasculated. . The Ammonia Phosphate, howe\ made by " The Augusta Fertilizer M ufacturing Company," comes nearest the desideratum suggested. With a sm er proportion of silica (according to published analysis and a partial kno edge of thc process of manufacturing) J a larger one of potassa, it would ab fulfill the required conditions. It is cc posed of materials derived from the th kingdoms of nature-the animal, the n eral, the vegetable-(the organic and inorganic) ; bones and carcases of anim solvents to hasten decomposition, abs bents to intercept and fix the valuable caping gases. lt embodies, therefore, all the substa and elements which unite to stimul growth, to perfect thc structure and vclop aud mature the fruit. And so cc bined, that in affording ample sustenai to the herb of plant or flower, it is mt lied by chemical-appliances and aflinil toward all injury from the tenderest gel Thc^uanos, thc phosphates and al kal phosphates and the other natural and tificial fertilizers will all find their co terparts. their essential constituents, int woven in this compound. It is with the planter to determine quantity to be applied, which will def ? on the quality of his land, fresh or wo rich or poor, less on the character of soil, stiffor loose, as alumina or silex p dominates. It will not injure any a may benefit all. The advantages to the purchaser a that it is made at home, and by w known persons, whose intelligence w not be questioned, thus guaranteeing honest article, and, . as its process of p paring and analysis are open to public spection, assuring a most valuable one. M. C. M. HAMMOND. BEECH ISLAND, S. C., January, 1868. Since the above was written, we ha authority for stating that the impro> mcnts suggested have been adopted, vi increasing the proportion of potassa ai lessening that of silica. Besides, the coi pany has taken the first step-to " rival t Chinese in the preservation and use night soil." Nothing will be left undo to make " Ammonia Phosphate" the mc perfect manure in the land. Agricultural Societies* These associations have never been d ly appreciated by the Southern peopl and this fact is easily accounted for. Du ing the days of slavery, when labor w abundant, and subject to our control, th< were, perhaps, not so important, and co sequen liv received but little attention. The object of every farmer is, of cours io realize the greatest possible yield *: proportion to the quantity of land in ct livation, the number of hands employ? and the capital invested. Todo this 1 must exercise, the very highest degree skill in the management of his farm. No how many are possessed of this degn of skill ? You may find a few here at there, but a majority of the meir no managing plantations know literall; nothing about scientific farming, and tl [ misfortune is, they do not care to lie taugh ignorance is always bigoted, and many i them think that what they don't know not worth learning. No man is perfect. No man has eve arrived at perfection in any trade, occupj tion, or profession. A few excel, but th great majority never rise above medi ocrity. In order, therefore, that the many shoul realize the benefits to be derived from th wisdom and experience of the few, ther should be associations formed throughoi the land. These should be regularly 01 ganized and officered, and have state times for meeting. At these meeting every subject pertaining to the cultivatio of the soil, could be freely discussed. Th valuable information scattered over th country, could here be brought togcthe en masse. While one member would b able to advance some valuable thought o which the others are ignorant, he himsel would be benefitted by acquiring thi knowledge of others. The kind of ma nure best adapted to particular soils, th< mode of applying it, the best time foi planting the various crops, thc best im piernones for cultivating them, the short est and most efficient means of gathering them, embrace a few of the many sub jects that might here bc discussed wit!; profit to every member. Another sub' jeet, also, might, thus receive thc attention its importance demands, and that is, the introduction on Southern farms of the modern improvements ill agricultural machinery now used at thc North. That any man of even ordinary means, who in vests his capital in tilling the soil, should discard these labor-saving machines, is more than " passing strange." To say they are u humbugs" now, is simply to expose your ignorance. Throughout New England, the Middle States, and the Great West, they are in gencrul use, and-have been for years. Do you suppose a Yankee farmer, who culti vates but ten, fifteen or twenty acres of land, would use a " humbug" ? Landreth's extensive seed farm, near Philadelphia, is cultivated entirely with these improv ed implements. This farm has no equal in the world, and there is no other u; on earth where science and skill are carried to a greater degree of practical perfec tion. Will any one suppose thc proprie tors of this farm are to be M humbugged" in any implement they usc ? Glanders in Horses? Will you be so kinTl as to inform me through your excellent JOURNAL the symp toms of glanders, p.nd its treatment I bave a fine animal that has symptoms of it. C. K. II., Wilkesville, Ohio. The symptoms of glanders are : A dis charge of matter from one or both nos Lrils ; enlargement 'of on? or both sub maxillary glands. When one nostril only ia affected, the corresponding gland is al most invariably found enlarged. The schneiderinn membrane (lining of the lose) is generally of a pale or leaden hue, md sometimes ulcerations are visible on ts surface. The discharge usually ad ?eres to the nostrils, and is sometimes vhite and thick, but often of a grayish ispeet. A discharge from the nostrils, i ind the appearance of ulceration, isni?t|< ilone sufiicien? to establish the presence I < ?f the disease ; for these ulcerations are I ometimcs produced by the acrid nature ? if the discharge from the catarrh. In i he first stage of the disease, there is a I lischarge from one nostril only, of a \ whitish humor, which is inconsiderable, s xcept when the horse has been exercised fc air some time. There is an increased h edness of the membrane within the nos. r rila; the swelling of the glands under c ic jaw ia oa the aame side as the affected ? nostril ; the horse's coat appears healthy, and the* animal in good condition. The symptoms of glanders, arising from com munication with a glandere^J horse, are different from those of glanders produced by bad provender, excessive'exertion, ?ic. In the former the discharge is from one nostril only, or much more from one than the other ; and there is no cough or other symptoms of catarrh or cold, or any other disorder. In the latter on the contrary, there is a cough, either dry or moist ; and it is preceded by loss of appetite or falling off in appetite, and depression of spirits. The instant the above symptoms are observed, .he horse should bc immediate ly removed ?o a place by itself, and as soon as the cas,-? is clearly diagnosed to be glanders, the animal should lie put out of the way, for there is no cure for the disease.-American Stock Journal. Tbe Irish Potato. The question of "whole" or M cut" po tato sets has elicited much discussion in the agricultural journals of this country and Europe; and with the view of aiding our readers in arriving at correct conclu sions on this and other important points in potato culture, we give thc following summing up from a I*rizc Essay of Mr. George May, of Benlhall, Eng, who made careful experiments on'129 trial plots: ( Eu. So. CULT. 1. Every increase in the size of the set, from one ounce lo eight ounces in weight, produces' an increase in thc crop much greater than the additional weight of the set planted. The net. profit, over and above the extra weight of sets, in planting four ounce sets in li^u of one ounce sets, amounted, on the whole series of experiments, to between three and four tons per acre ; and the further profit, on the increase of thc size of the set from faur to eight ounces, averaged about five tons per acre, all the intermediate steps partaking proportionally of the increase. 2. The advantage of large sets is more marked in the early varieties. 3. In the use of small sets, of one to three ounces in weight, a large balance over and above the weight of the sets was obtained by planting from six to nine inches apart in the rows than at wider intervals. 4. Increasing the intervals at which the sets are planted, even of the largest size, in th* rows, to more than twelve inches, diminishes the crop, and the wider inter? vals induce no increase in the weight of the produce of the individual sets. 5. It may bc broadly stated that the weight of the crop is proportionate to the weight per acre of the sets, and that small sets will produce the same crop as an equal weight per acre of large sets. The fact is, however, of limited application, as a weight of very small sets, equal to a weight of full s:zed potatoes, could not be got into the ground, except by plant ing them so close as not to be beneficial to the crop. Thc advantage, therefore, of the large set remains practically un impaired. ?. Weight for weight, cut sets produce as nearly as possible the same weight per acre as the whole pot-toes, but, for thc reasons given above, thc weight of the sets should not be reduced by subdivision. 7. Smaller sets give a larger produce in 'proportion to their weight than the larger sets. 8. When the intervals between the sets in rows are diminished to less than a foot, the produce of each individual set is proportionately diminished. Though this is not necessarily accompanied by a dimi nution of the weight of the crop, no in crease in the produce of each individual sec is caUi d by placing the set at inter vals wider than a foot. 9. With reference to the relative pro duce of different varieties a late red sort takes precedence throughout thc experi ments ; and of the several varieties of Fluke, "Spencers King of Flukes," and "The Queen of Flukes," are much more prolific than the ordinary variety. As to the manure best adapted to the potato, it was found by Dr. Lang that all nitrogenous dressings, tried in Devonshire, were rather prejudicial than otherwise, as regards the potato disease, but that wood ashes (which abound in potash) and lime and salt were beneficial. Experiments with regard to manures were carried on under thc direction of Prof. Voelcker, and on examining them the following deductions have been made : 1. The best crop was' obtained by thc usc of rotten barn-yard manure. 2. Superphosphates ond crude potash- , salts-a purely mineral maluning-gave a nearly equal increase. The mixture of superphosphates and crude poiash-salts appear to be specially useful for root-crops on light land. 3. Common salt, enhances the efficiency nf t'e superphosphate- and potash-salts, but when used alone it slightly diminishes the crop. 4. Potash-salts applied alone, though by no moans the most desirable manure for potatoes, nevertheless had a better effect than, common salt; for while the crude, potash-salts give an increase of nearly 8 cwt. per acre, common salt pro duced 7 cwt. and 44 lbs. less than the un inanurcd plots on the average. The Barberry Hedge. One of the wants of the agricultural community at the present time, is a good hedge plant. Nearly every one that has been tried thus far has exhibited some radical defect that unfits it for the pur pose. Our native thorns, for instance, are subject to the attacks of the borer. Thc English hawthorn cannot stand our dry summers, nor the Osage, orange our hard winters. The buckthorn is too open and ragged at the base, lt is doubtful if any plant, whose natural growih is from i twenty to twenty-five feet high, can I e kept down within the bounds of an ordi- ; nary hedge and retain a healthy state. And even if they could submit to thc : pruning, the annual expense of keeping < them in shape would bc more tharr the American farmers arc willing to bear. A ? hedge-plant, to become popular, must be perfectly hardy and easy to propagate. ? It should also be vigorous enough to grow f ivell in ordinary soils without manure. lt should be thorny to keep cattle from looking it, and strong enough to keep hen from breaking through it. Finally, t should be low enough ?to require little ?r no pruning. The common barberry Barberies ruiyarics) combines these [utilities better than any plant we are ac piainted with. The barberry is a native if the northern part of Europe and Asia; ?ut has become thoroughly naturalized in America, and is now found growing wild ii thc waste grounds of New England. ? t is a remarkably hardy plant, thriving j rel I in a great variety of aoils. and is J aid to live for centuries. Jt has a shrub- 6 y habit (growing from six to ten feet in ' S eight,) yellowish thorny wood lea vos in * esettes, yellow flowers on drooping ra emes.'and scarlet oblong berries, very cid, but making delicious preserves. An mportant item in regard to this shrub, is ?ts habit of sending up stout shoots from the collar, which will in the course of five or six years form a thick impassable hedge, that will take care of itself. This plant does not sucker from the root. We have a barberry hedge on our grounds at WMIingford. twenty fm? rods long, arid niue years old, from I he seed. This hedge has been clipped a little two or three Urnes, to keep it even, and is now six to ten feet high, with a. firm, compact bas-\ perfectly impervious to the smaller ani mals, and is stout enough to turn cattle. On our grounds at Oneida, \. Y., we. have a barberry hedge fifty rods long, and eight years old, from the seed, lt was kept clean with the cultivator the. first four years and clipped a little, once or twice. It is now from seven to eight feet, high, thick and compact at tho base, and already so strong that the fence was taken away two years ago, leaving in its place, only' a slight railing of a single board, six or eight inches wide, as a tem porary guard until the hedge could gain another year's growth, it being situated on a highway where cattle are passing daily. DlKECTIONS FOR RA?SIN?? A UEDGJV Seed gathered in the fall should be imme diately planted or mixed with moist sand, and exposed ti) frost during winter. Sow in drills two feet ?part, thc saine as for apple-seed, and cover about one inch deep. Transplant the seedlings into hedge row when one or two years old. Set the plants one foot apart in tho row at an an omie of forty-five degrees, and cut dowrTto about eight inches of the ground.-The Circular.

COMPAHATIVE RESULTS FROM WHITE ANO NEGRO LABOR.-A. writer in the Southern Planier und Fumier states that a gentleman in Charlotte county, Virgi nia, thus tested the comparative results of white and black labor: fie furnished thirteen negroes with mules and imple ments and provisions to raise a crop, and at the same Lime furnished an outfit to two white men. The negroes raised 94 barrels of corn, 7 slacks oals and 5,000 pounds tobacco. The two white men, with n little negro girl to cook for them, raised i 1*2^ barrels of corn, 10 stacks of oats and 8,000 pounds" of tobacco. The. negroes returned the mules in a poor, emaciated condition. Thc white men turned tl eirs over fat and sleek. The negroes worked four mules, the whites two. The gentleman referred to will, this year, work white men exclusively. To show thc improvidence of the negroes, he said the cart and mules were*at their ser vice to haul wood, yet they preferred to burn rails. Comment is unnecessary. ESTABLISHED 1802.
