. ' IHE llOHVEUSTA TE J' A I It. Extracts J roil the Speech of Hon. X. li. l ance. Tbo.1 highly favored both in soil and climate, what abnll wo produce mainly f Witb biuocrs diffidence I shall cfl'er a few suggestions in this regard : la a country o sparsely Milled as ours, aod Whore lands: are he'd iu aucb Urge bodies, tbe theory of a division of labor ia not sound teonomy io farming operations. Every farm should be an nearly independent and lelf supporting in all respect us it can possibly be made. Id mercantile parlance, a far mer should, if possible, be a yenerul dealer to at least tbe extent of bi own coubUtiiDtion. riuntiiii?, therefore, as cootradistiuiruiabed fiom farming by which we understand a special devotion to cotton, rice, tobacco, or any great stu pie, is liable to ibis objecliou, it is cot aelfsustuiniDg. An impcrtect and ua wise arrangement, that is, by which so many of our planters expend tue pro oecds of their staple crops for provisions and stock, thus paying double profits and commissions, as well a.s shipping away the fatness of their soils every year and placing uothing back in lieu of it. Every man who tills the sou as i means of living should surely first pro' vide himself with everything which bis farm will crow before be plants a single seed for sale. Another objettion to planting, or upeciul farming, is tbat it is ruinously destuctive ot tenuity and an enemy to improvement of lauds, Jt is, I believe, an accepted truto that there are do means ot permanent improve' went in our soils equal to tbe oultiva tion of aome of tbe grasses and tho rear ing of flocks, which both return and re turn fertility to tbe eartu. We are here directly on the dividing line la twuen tbe piantiutr and tue kiuzidc re gions of the United States, and by a ju dicious and scientific iutermingling of botb I give it as my unbesitutiug opin ion tbat we stand ia a belter position to secure wealth by agricultural means than auy other people oil the continent To sucessfnlly duvelopo the agricult ural wealth of our country i deeru not only necesary to reform our plan ting system, but to open out uew paths and to diversify to the utmost extent our productions. This will secure im munity, to a great extent, against tbs uccideuts of the seasons, enlarge our markets, and bring into proutublj em ploy oicnt much labor as of to men and children now so little used. Aud here permit me to remark that I regret to see tbat your committee, iu making up their very large list of premiums, have failed to offer any inducements for essays or other information in regard to many to us new departments of industry. A change in this respect is imperatively demanded by our altered circumstances. In reflecting upon tbe many new fields of agricultural enter prise upon which our people might en ter, I am forcibly impressed With tbe opinion tbat tbe two most promising of sure results, aud best adapted to our scarcity of capital and labor, are tbe cultivation of the viu in tbe lowlands and tbe orchards and dairies of the highlands in these two States. No sur er road to fi rtune, it seems to me, can be found than lies here for intelligent industry. The Scuppernog grape alone, wiih its various crossings, is a source of nn mense profit. It is extremely baidy, its culture is simple, and since tbe olus ters of Eschol. u is perhaps the most wonderfully prolfio grape io tho world. Its home 1", too, ia tbat sandy belt cov ere4 by thu loog-leafj pine, heretofore erroneously considered almost valueless. lit ta, wi bout trencbtnjr at all upon !uab! irraiu soils, enough wino could be made from St to lupply tbo markets of tb.3 world, aod plac? even in tlie cab ins of tbe poor purer ami bealtbier drink than i ton seeu in tbo salons of tbe r icb and grat. A atatcoent of tbe yiold aud tbe sales of wioe by a few geaUemeu wLo bavo recently engaged in this busiuess iu North Carolina would inake many a man tre who oontinwes to gather leu bush els of oib, or live of wb a', por acre from bis worn-out i.'lds, after tbe uian uor of bin fathers. Tbe capai'itj i.f this grape is indeed almost tuutvcllous. 1 have derived soma information ia regard to tbo subject from a practical and experience! grower of ft in llnplin oouuty, North Carolina, wh oh I give as follows : An acre nil! bear twjuty-ono vines forty feet apart At three years old each vino yields one peek of grapes ; at five, two bushels; at too, twenty-tive bushels ; at fifteen, forty bushels ; many vines actually bear ins fifty bushels. A - busbol of best grapes, weighing sixty pounds, will make four cillous of iuico, which will yield ubout tlireo and a half gallons of wise, readily coiumnudiui' io market 92.60 per gallon. Tbo poiuico will uuke five gallons of vinegai, worth fifty cents per gallon, tie nave tbus Jfll J)as the proeeeds of ono bushel; 8 150 as the proceeds of one full-grown vine, 99,4u0 as tbe possible proceeds of one ere. A result iiiui almost exccens belief, and I stale it with diflii donee on what appears to me reliable authority. Even .reducinif every item by uirje-ten tliH, it would still leave this grape too most proliuu and most protii able one iu ibo world ; which I verily believe it to be. And I aiu assured hy the best authority in the State tbat 81,000 per acre is a very moderate cal culation. Tbe labor and expenditures are very trifling, the whole not exceed ing about thirty-three oeuts per gallou, including cost ot real estate. At to tin) wine itself, when properly made, Professor Charles T, Jackson, in tbe l'atent Office Report of IH.VJ, says of it : "Tho rich flavor of thw grnpo renders it peculiurit valuable, ,ib? wine havinir the fla"or and b'siuut of the celebrated Tokay wino of lluugarv Tbe (TTipe, however, oauuot b cultiva ted in tlut open air north (if Virginia, and is a native of North Carolina It is desirable (bat extensive vineyards should be established in I but rMuto ox pressly fir the eultivation of this grape, rhieh will n.hkr a wine lint w.ll h imwaassesuai i iwh i'innnnn i most eaeerly sought for as tbe best of I American native wines." With regard to the difficulty existing in so calm a climate as ours of prevent ing tbe ascetio fermentation in the manufacture of wine, I suppose mere need be do further troublo. I believo that is now pretty well established that although our summers are long, and the grape ripens while the season is yet too warm to make wine, the proper tempera- lure can be obtained by means of taulta and te lars to secure tho vinous fermen tation iu any part of tbe States ; whilst in tho frostlcss belts of the highlands the grape has been known to hang on to tho vine in perfect keeping until De cember. This is, of course, tbe most favorable of all possible conditions for vine culture a climate sufficiently wanu to ripen the grape, and sufficiently cool at the season of the vintage to secure the vinous fermentation sixty-nve de grees reing cool enough for that pur pose. A single fct is sufficient to bhow tbe capacity of this country for grape cul ture. Ibe Scuppernog and tbe lar famed Catawba, the two best and most productive varieties on the coutinent, are natives of North Carolina. Stran gers have trans-planted them to do better soil and a far ruder ami less congenial clime, and grown rich upon their cul ture, whilat we plough our worn-out cornfields, hoe our soil-destroying to bacco, and talk of nurd times aud the scarciiy of money ! rZZERIHURG A D VER TISEMESTS.
