ciiinf.sk sugar miixkt. 1'
Dr. Cloud?Dear Sir : It is almost us"- 1
loss now to say anything more about this a
plant, in regard to its qualities for yielding ?
syrup and sugar, besides several other arti- h
cles. It has now been fairly fried ail over w
the South ; and though it may not havo c
come up to so groat a yield of syrup as was li
claimed for it, still it stood its trial glori- w
The "Sugar M illet" must unquestionably ii
iorin an cpocn in inc iurmmgot the South- h
orn States. Tho sugar growing section,
hitherto wit extending much north of the v
latitude of New Orleans, has now been en- a
largcd with several'degrees further towards g
tho North. The possibility for every plan- y
tcr of making his own syrup is certainly a \,
matter of great importance. It is truly | >$
amusing, that some persons are still so far | t
"behind time" as to consider this plant b
identical with the old fashioned "Ohioken d
Corn." Why, tho more chewing of a pieeo d
of* flirt ?f:ilLr Willllil cnlVu.irtnf I ? *
even "Zack. Boss" oftlio <?;rc:it difference. a
But, 011 the other hand, its value as a for- y
age plant ought not to bo overlooked ; for, a
as such, it is unquestionably iufcrior to o
none. Many a person will perhaps think a
that T am praising it too highly, b.it 1 feci a
confident that this plant is not yet appro- ii
ciatcd half as much as it deserves. a
In cutting it for syrup, a great fault is b
pnnnniftnrl in if I
oughly matured. By all means lot the n
seed be dead-ripe before the cane is cut for '1
the mill. ]>y cutting it before that period, h
you will get a larger quantity of juice, but t!
it will be watery, require more boiling, w
shrink i >oro, and make an inferior syrup. S
There is no necessity for nor advantage in h
stripping off the leaves, or pinching off the ri
Bced-panicles, before the seed is thoroughly c
ripe. This operation would only cause the ii
stem to throw out suckers, which would be \s

In boiling the juice it is of great impor- v
tancc to strain it well, and to have tbc kct- n
tie well filled. The whole mass will slin- |(
nier much better than if the boiler is only (
half full, and not bo so apt to boil over. It
should not be stirred at all, until a thick (,
brownish crust has gathered over the whole 1
surface, when this cruat should be removed, j?,
and the liquid strained into the second S
boiler, and so on, until it gets its proper ii
The question lias been made : ' ITow to i
IcQfip the caqcs ttntH Fall?' In reply I | t:
would say that there is no difficulty in it. I n
Any barn or shed will answer; let the canes
be thoroughly matured and place theui on t
the ground lloor in a layer, say 12 to 15 ii
inches thick. Put another layer of canes
of similar thickness on the top of the first,
but cross-iati/, and so on. Cover the whole ^
pile; the best material for it is baggasse, [<
or refnxo. rain'-d wliiXli li#vn m wnil tlimnrtVi

tho mill. In this way the canes will keep si
ft very long time in excellent condition, and tl
when taken out for grinding, it will be w
found that many of the watery parts have
evaporated, but that the juice is much rich- c
cr, and will yield a very superior article of 0
syrup. When it will require about seven
^-'illons of juice from fresh canes to produo?
a gallon of good syrup, that snmo tl
quan.'ty, and of quality, can be made from v
four to five gallons of juice pressed from v
canes which have been preserved in this p
wav for some weeks.

The saccharine principle will not ?vapor- y

apples aro undergoing by being kept for some r
time. I will now say a few wo^ds about tli'o a
Sugar Millet, ns a forago plant. The saving v
of corn is a most Important matter, particu- ^
larly when prices aro so high, as has now
* beon tho case for sovoral years.
Whon planted early in April, and on good, n
high, sandy land, thin millet will, by tlio be- n
Sinning of July, have matured its ratio*,nut- si
ciontly to serve iu> ft substitute for ?orn in j,
feeding stock. Tlio nutritious qualities of g
the ?i?gar Cnne are too well kt.cwn to need
any explanation. Kven before tbo seed is
perfectly ripe, the canes can be cut for this 01
pirrpose. Let tho whole, stalku, leaves and
bom, bo cut. up in a common straw cutter, al- K(
lowing ten or twelve good strong stalks to
each working animal per iwonty-four hours, '

Lot every planter calculate for himself,

rop so easily raised, and which stands our

igorously, and in a few weeks produce a se- j

uul ceuts that tho South would dissolvo the
I'uioti. The history of long, weary years
?f unjust and unequal legislation has siilliuiently
proved that point. But when it
shall he proved to the South not only that
the sceptre has forever departed from her; i
that she Can never, concurrently with tho !
North, rule the common country, but that i
she must forever occupy an inferior and j

expand, never occupy her just share of tho
common territory; that her institutions and !
civilization are at tlio mercy of a sectional
majority, which tolerates theui only to the
snd that her people, as " hewers of wood

take her destinies into her owu hands."

a Southern man, with a natural and (one
would think) pardonable, iudignation, resents

attacks, ho is requested (< to keep

winters rest, and which should have softened

of the grave. denounce his Southern brethren
with a bitterness and vehcmenco that

Wc observe in the proceedings of the Senate
on Thursday, that the Committee 011
Territories reported against the organization
of the Territory of Arizona, and iu lieu of

act of New Mexico, which provides for a
new judicial circuit, to include the Gadsden

to giving a fair and equal .representation in

that ihese provisions will remed* 'he evils
