Corn and Cotton vs. Cotton.
Editors Southern Cxdtivator:?Fpj;6ome
limo past 1 have been thinking that I
would writu an article setting forth the
profits accruing to the cotton planter who
raises his own coro.
You may demonstrate to any class of
men that if they pursue a certain course
of conduct, the good of the country will
be subserved thereby, still they will not
pursue it, unless it conduces to their indi?
vidual interest. Ton might address the
cotton plantors of these Southern States
month after montb, for the next fifty
years, on the patriotism of planting more
corn and leas cotton, and not induce them
for that reason, to raise an additional
amount, sufficient to pay for tho ink and
paper consumed in the publication of
your addresses. Thoir answer will over
ho i "I cannot afford to sacrifice my indi
uidual interost for the little good it will
do the country." If by concert of action
you could secure a pledge from all, to
plant one halt their land in corn and the
balance in cotton, doubtless much good
would be accomplished. But I appre?
hend that it is next to impossible to bring
about this concert of action. In the win?
ter of 1866-7, so many persons suffered
throughout this section of country, (and
doubtless other portions also,) that there
was a general ventilation of this subject,
and apparently a univorsal determination
.to-plant enough land in the future, to in?
sure a supply of corn. What was tho re?
sult? I will give you an illustrative anec?
dote, in reply.
Italy, as you know, is a wine growing
country, and it ib customary for every one
there to drink wine. The people in a
certain neighborhood agreed among them?
selves, that they would furnish the parish
priest with his wine. For convenience,
an empty barrel was placed at the door
of the Cathedral, and every man was to
bring his contribution with him the next
Sabbath morning, and empty it in the
barrel. One man, Mr. Sneak Thrift}',
reasoned with himself after this wise:
" I have no more wine than I want to
consume or sell, and as all the others will
carry wine, a little water will not be de?
tected?so I'll fill my two bottles with
water." He did so, curried thern to the
Cathedral, and inset ting tho necks of the
bottlos into the bung of the barrel, as did
the others, emtied them, and went into
the house. Wow Sneak Thrifty felt as if
he had played a vory cute trick. After
servicc^the priest went to sample his wine,
and to his astonishment, and that also ot
his congregation, discovered that the bir
rel contained nothing but water. All
had reasoned as Sneak Thriity. The re?
sult was, the priest, as their confessor,
condemned them to pay four barrels, by
way of penance, for duplicity. Now for
In tho spring of 1867, all concurred in
the opinion that it was tho best polic}' to
plant more land in corn and less in cot?
ton, and nearly every one thought that
corn would be plentiful in tho fall. But
before the tune tor planting arrived, most
id docided that every one would pliint
'?n?''VJ^f^itn, and would of necessity
crop. Corn, in ^qut^a^J?Z
cheup, and cotton high. Tnev -Fnx.nca"
thoir crops accordingly. Thus it will ev?
er be, Mr. Editor, unless you oonvince
men that it is to their individual interest
to raise provisions, whether others do so
No one will deny that the produce of
one or one hundred acres of land cultiva?
ted in cotton, will sell for more than tho
same number in corn. We will give the
figures j but before doing so, let us settle
a few preliminary points:
One (1) bale of cotton to three (3)
acres ot land, is a good crop for tho plan?
tation in this country?in fact it is above
the average. Weighed as picked in the
fields, it will require 180U lbs. of seed cot?
ton to make one bale of lint. Any three
(3) acres of land that will yield one (1)
bale of cotton, will yield thirty-six (36)
bushels of corn?twelvo (12) bushels to
tho acre. Valueing corn at 81.50 per
bushel, (a low average price.) and cotton
at 20 cents per pound net, the figures will
tand thus :
3 acres of land, a bale, 500 lbs.,
20 eis. $100 00
acres of land in corn, 36 bush?
els, SI.50...354 00
acres of land, 350 lbs.
fodder, $1.25. 4 37?58 37
Showing a difference of 041.37 in favor of
the 3 acres cultivated in cotton.
Suppose wo take these figures and ap?
ply them to practice. Every observing
tarmer knows, that for each additional
acre of land planted in cotton, two must
be deducted from tho number in corn.
In other words, if a farmer is able to cul?
tivate 20 acres to the hand?10 in corn
and 10 in cotton?he will not bo able to
cultivate more than 15 acres in cotton
alone?13J would be nearer correct.
20 hands, 15 acres each in cot?
ton, 300 acres, 1 bale cotton
to 3 acres, 100 bales, 20c.. $10,000 00
20 hands, 10 acres in
cotton, 200 acres,
1 balo to 3 acres,
66s bales, 20c... $6,666 66
10 acres in corn, 200
acres, 12 bush, per
acre, 2400 bushels,
1000 lbs fodder
to 100 bushels
lbs., $1.25. 300.00-3,900.00
When reduced to practice, you perceive
that the planter makes a clear gain of
$566.66, by producing his own corn. He
has pasture for his miiles and horses ? ho
can raise cow-poas on his corn hmd with?
out any additional expense. The vines
are valuable for stock, and good for ma?
nure for his land; his 663 bales, picked
out in good time, and in better condition
will command a better average price than
j the 100 bales will. If he finishes hisgath
! ering beforo Christmas, ho can turn his
I hands loose and save expense; or what is
much better, ho can make manure by
hauling leaves and trash of every descrip?
tion, into his horse lots, cow-pens and hog
lots, and do a hundred other profitable
things. Land is abundant and labor
scarce. As I wish to make as much mon?
ey as possible to the hand, I plant the
[ same number of acres in corn that I do in
j cotton. Respectfully, J. R. R.

A Thrilling Incident.
The New York Commercial Advertiser
says : "One of our oldest Merchants, who
formerly carried on business in Beaver
street, residing, as it was the custom in
old times, over his store, tolls the follow?
ing thrilling narrative, which he occasion?
ally relates with wonderful effect:
"A party had been collected at his house
to give eclat to one of those little family
life, and cheer the human heart in every
clime. It was his daughter's wedding
day; crowds of her young acquaintances
circled around her, and as the father gaz?
ed proudly on the face of the 3'oung bride,
ho wished as bright a prospect might
open for his other children who were
gambolling merrily among a crowd.
Passing through the passage connecting
the lower rooms he met the,6ervant maid,
an ignorant country wench, who was car?
rying a lighted tallow candle in her hand
without a candlestick. Ho blamed her
for this dirty conduct, and went into the
kitchon to make some arrangements with
his wife about the supper table; the girl
shortly returned with hor arms f?ll of ale
bottles, but without the candle. The
merchant immediately recollectod that
several barrels of gunpowder had been
placed in his cellar during tho day, and
that his foreman had opened one of the
barrels to select a sample for a customer.
'Where is your candle V he inquired in the
utmost agitation. 'I couldn't bring it up
with me, for my hands were full,' said the
girl. 'Whore did you leave it?' '-Well,
I'd no candlestick, so 1 stuck it into some
black sand that's there in one of the tubs.'
The merchant dashed down the cellar
steps; the passage was long and dark, and,
as ho groj?ed his waj' on, his knees threat?
ened to give way under him; his breath
was choked, and his flesh seemed sudden
denl}' to become dry and parched, as if
ho already felt tho suffocating blast ol
death. At the extremity of tho passage,
in the front cellar, under the vciy room
where his children and friends were re?
velling in felicity, ho discerned the open
powder barrel, full almost to tho top, the
eandle stuck lightly in the loose grains,
with a long red snuff of burnt-out wick
toppjng the small and gloomy flame.
This sight seemed to wither all his pow
ers, and the mciry laugh of tho youngsters
above struck upon his heart like tho knell
of death. Ho stood for some moments
gazing upon the light unablo to advance.
Tho fiddler commenced a lively jig, and
the feet of dancors responded with in?
creased vivacity; tho floor shook with
their exertions, and tho looso bottles in
tho cellar jingled with tho motion. He
fancied the candle was moved?was fal?
ling ! With desperate energy he dashed
forward; but how was he to remove it?
The slightest touch would cause tho small
live coal of wick to fall into tho loose
powder. With .. unequalled presence of
mind he placed a hand each sido of tho
candle, with the opon palms upward, and
the distended fingers pointed toward the
object of his caro, which, as his hands
I gradually met, was secured in tho clasp?
ing or locking of his fingers, and safely
! removed from the bond of the barrel.
When he reached the head of tho stairs
the excitement was over; he smiled at the
danger he had conquered ; but the reac?
tion was too powerful, and ho fell into fits
of most violent and dreadful laughter.
Ho was conveyed senseless to bed. and
many weeks elapsed ero his nerves re?
covered sufficient tone to allow him to re?
sume his habits of overy day lifo."
