AGRICU LTURAL. TJic Value ot Red Xtnst VroOTOnUt. In the Rural for Attzust. 1874, I published an experiment with red oats, that several friends nsscrted was ex- wniinniMp 1-wiino "it. was frrowinf t , - o I 6:its too cheap." Another year has come and gone. I have repeated the experiment, succeeded equally as well, the Place properly cared for and se- their cattle will relish the hay thus pre nnd am pleased to say, I have witness- cured; his tools, implements and flock pared and how it will take them d a better success with more than one of my neighbors. Red oats can be frrown at an expense of twenty-five cents per bushel ou any ordinary farm m the oautu, every sucn uusnei win i w . . fiii ii i -. i.. ...!, a - r Tfeigu uuriy piuus, uuu a puuu oaU will produce just as much muscle and fat as a Dound of corn. 1 have tent a horse far two years without ever feeding him an ear of corn or a blade - I of fodder, his d uly diet being shelled 6ats aud straw, or cut oats from the hheaf; he has been ploughed, wagoned, hacked about in a bugy, and ridden under the saddle, and there never was a time he was not ready and willing to do a full share of work. Any land that ever I have seen in the South will produce two bushels of oats where it wul grow one bushel of corn; each farmer for himself can calculate the cost of growins the two crops, Bed oats will yield more gram to the straw, and more delicate straw than any other oats I have ever grown Sawn in the fall, they will produce a r 0 , if frozen out during the winter to a ringle stool to every square foot. They are heavier than any other, and have Uever been known to take the rust. A few vears a-ro.

Not even a blade of the red oats were touched, though the acre was iu the midst of those most thoroughly ruined. The time is upon us when they should again be rsown,though they are remuner ative ifsown at any time between this and the 1st of next March. I prefer to sow in cotton-land broad cast, and plough in with three or four sweep furrows. This lays by a cotton crop as well as sows a small grain crop, hence a saving of half the labor. It is cheaper to sow in the cotton field even if postponed till September or October, because cotton, requiring clean culture, the land is in better tilth, and fewer furrows are necessary. The hands -while picking cottoa during the winter will trample upon the young sprigs, and make them stool out better there- lor. bheep will winter on oats in a cotton field and never molest the cot ton till they have eaten up the oats. Where cotton is the exclusive crop, there is no little vexation and harass ing doubts at harvest time to him who ventures to sow small grain. In June the cotton and corn need the attention of the laborer constantly. Hence, the nolicv. almost tiMrasitv. of intpntinrr the laborer in the ownership at least of me oai crop, a iiur contract, in tins regard, b for the employer to furnish the seed, fertilizer, and land, and re- quire the employe to supply the labor of seeding and harvesting, and at bar- Test time divide the crop, one-fonrth to the laborerand three-fourths to the em- ployer. An acre of land, producing twenty bushels of oats, would thus give the laborer five bushels of oats for about two days work (ploughing, scat- tering manure, knocking down stalks, and harvesting), and fifteen bushels to the owner, one and a half bushels of eeed.threeandahalfbushelstopayfor fertilizers, aud ten bushels for rent.

The AldiOe while issued with all or the regu lar! ty, has none of the temporary or timely Ut' leretu cnsraeierisue ot ordinary periodicals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and graceful literature, and a collection of pictures, the rarest collection of artiitio skill, la black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, tits real value and beauty of The Aldine will b molt appreciated after it is bound np at the close of ;ne year, n one otner publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of a similar class, Tho Aldina is a nnique and original conception alone and uaipproached absolutely without competition in nice or character, ine possessor or a complete vol ume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine pa per and enefarln-j In any other shape or nam ber of volumes, for ten timet ill cost; and tien, tiere it tit eiromo, letidet! The national feature of Tie AlJ'ne most bs taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo politan. While The Aldina is a strictly Ameri ran institution, It does not confine itself to the peprodnetioa of native art- Its mission is to cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, one that will discriminate on grounds of intrinsic) merit. Thus, while pleading before the patrons of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic the productions of the most noted American artists, attention will always be given, to specimens from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the pleasure and instruction' obtainable from hems or foreign sources. The artistie illustration of American f cenery, original with The Aldine is an important fea ture, and its magnificent pfatei ore of a site more appropriate to the satisfactory freatstant of details than can be afforded by any inferior page. The judicious interspersion of landscape, marine, figure an! animal subjects, sustain an unabated interest, impossible where the scope of the work confines the artist too closely to a single style of subject. The literature of The Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment. worthy or the artistic features, wsia only sues technical disquisitions as do not interfere with the popular interest of the wotS. premium: fob 1S73.
