A Visit to Centre Grange- It was our pleasure to bo present at the Regular meeting of this! staunch Grange on Saturday Nov. 13th. We made the acquaintance of several worthy Brothers and wero delighted to see the deep interest manifested by all present in the work ings of the Grange. Tho ladies par ticularly indicated a spirit of zeal that assures the success of the Grange. Worthy .Vaster A. Scarborough deserves much praise for the excel lent condition of his Grange, and the several officers reflect much credit upon it by the thoroughness with which they discharge their respect ive duties. We fully appreciate the honor conferred upon oa in being re quested to preside over a 'Grange consisting of so true and carnost Pats rons, and thank sincerely the Grange for their endorsement, and selection of the Mat aa their organ, and shall use onr best endeavors to provo it worthy of the high compliment. The beauties of tbe Orange display them selves in their grandest form out in the country where nature lends ber charms ia profaseness, indicating her appreciation of the cause, and when such true and genuine hospitality is uieeted out tbe scene is complete.

Cor. Western Farm Journal. How tiiey 00 Down. Freights, end commission on grain are on the tumble. One house after another is sues circulars to tho farmers announc ing a great reduction in these partic ulars. Tempting inducements are offered- " What What's" the mat ter?" What's the cause of all this ? They did't do so in former yenrs. The Grangers are in the field They cannot be deceived by theso circulars, issued by different houses, all of which are regulated by ono grand central wheat rinsr. They propose to do their own' business in their own way to make their own arrange ments and follow them out, sly dodges and tempting offers to the contrary notwithstanding ; and in this firm decision lies their own safe ty. Should they, at this critical stage of tho game, allow themselves to bo hoodwinked by any of the artful schemes adopted by their adversa ries, and lose tattb in their own abil ity to mauago their own 8 Hairs ; should tliey allow any of tho misrep resentations concerning their choren leaders and agents to cause tlicuv to hesitate or warcr in their firm, unit ed support to these their representa tives, that moment victory will porch upon the bancer of the foe, and tho defeated farmers will fall back help less into the hands ot their former tyrants. Grangers, stand by those whom you liavo chosen to act for you. Their actions are all open to your inspection. Should they prove unworthy, the remedy is in your own hands.

It is time that t.is stato of things be remedied. It can easily bo done. You ask how ? Let there be formed an Orange Growers' Associa tion, and let this association appoint intelligent committees to report on tho bc.it method of gathering, park ing and chipping' tho manre, nnd en the best markets for the orange, and the cheapest methods of reaching these markets. Let the orange grow ing belt be divided into district, and let intelligent nud practical orange men be appointed to make a curelul sur vey of each oistrict, say in the months of Juno and July, nnd report to tho association the probable amount of fruit or number of birrels of c ranges that will rir.cu m.d be for market in each district. Then let the as.-ociatian fend to St. Lonhi, Cincinnati, Chicago, end other citien in tho North and West, trusty ascnts duty it shall bo to form good and substantial business relations with fruit houses there, so that when the time ol gathering fruit comes, the oi augo growers will know where their fruit is wanted and; can bo cold, aud will bo nblo, therefore, to fill orders through the association and its agents and in that way to reap the benefits of their own la'jor in securing the highest possible prices for their oranges. By knowing before Ihc oranges begin to be gathered about the number of ban els that wilPbe rais ed, it will be easy to fix upon a fair price for the fruit at the opening of the market, based upon the princi pl: of supply and demand. As it is now, the only principle thutgoverns tho price of tho fruit is the umount on hand in New Orleans at any one time. If a few hundred barrel hap pea to'eome in at a time, the market falls because tho local market is said to be glutted. If arrangements were made with the Northern and West- ern markets, as above suggested, there would be no such thing as glut ting the maiket with the compara tively few thousand barrels of oranges now grown iu Louisiana. Ten times the number could be thrown npon the mar ket and yet it be poorly supplied, if the fruit growers would see to it that their oranges got to the markets where they are wanted, when they are wanted, and in the condition they are wanted." Thcee suggestions aro equally ap plicable to the growers of the Coast. Although the production of the orango pays well now, with an ussnci ation of tho kind, it would pay still better. Let our people reflect over this matter and inaugurate a system ot this kinda at once, this season. Rest assured it wil pay you for your trouble. We will lend our asssist ance iu any way towards bringing the producers in direct contact with tho coneumcrs. . t - : " i - i . "it- 1 f - I !.. f. . ! !

Tho next point I vistcd was Chic ago. Hero I called npou Mr. W.

It is ge::eially conceded, th.it the South is the most favored outlet for thd people of the N'irtli-West ; our inter e.ts being identical ; tho two sections so closely connected by water and railroad communication, and the nat ural exchange of the products ol tho North and South. I would hero remark, that I found a Btrocg fcoiiug in favor of tho gen eral government improving the out let of the Mississippi river, thus abler-ding to the North-west, comjieti' lion and consequently cheap trauspo-. tation lor their products by way of the Gulf and Atlantic, to the Eastern States and to Europe. 1 next visited Cincinnati, where I found a deep interest exhibited in fa vor of developing the resources of the South, which is manifested in part by the very interests that city is taking in tne building of what is known as the Great Southern Rail road from Cincinnati to Atlauta, at a cost of many millions of dollars, which, when completed, will only give that city aecesi to a portion of ihc South, pos.?esing far less natural ads vantages, fertility of tho toil, etc, than the lower Misississippi Yalrey. From Cincinnati I went on to In dianapolis, the great railroad city ot the Uuited States, where our enterprise was osjain received with great favor by the press ui.d eople generally that city having direct railroad com munication with our section of coun try, by way of Vmccnnea and Cairo naturally feels a deep icier est ia the ....

In view of tho languishing coali tion of our section of country, and the necessity for, and great ndvantas ges to bo derived from immigration to our State, would it not bo wise on the part of the land-holders and railroad incorporations of our State, to co-operate and organize at once with a view of pressing this noble enterprise forward. As a business transaction I am convinced that it wauld pay the landholders of tho Stale to donate one fourth of their lands to good and thrifty farmers, who would move upon and cullivato thera for a given te- in of years, and thus enhance the vluo of the lands and lessen the burdens of taxation by a legitimate nicreaso in the valua ot property thus occupied and cultivated, to say nothing of other advantages resulting therefrom. I run pleased to learn that thcro is a general feel ing in favor of such a scheme. Notes oa Advertising. To cure dull times apply an ad vertisement to the afflicted part. A sign board e n't tell anything. It takes on advertisement to do that. All who advertise do not get rich, but very few get rich without it. The world is full of advertising, yet every one wants to see what is new. The world's memorv is short. It will forget you if you do not jog it frequently. 1' he world is sure to find out an honest man ; but it will find him out b great deal quicker if he advertises. CoTTisa Flower.. Never cut fl iweis during intense euushine, nor keep them exposed to the sua cr wind. Do not collect thorn in large bundles or tie them together, as this hastens their decay, Do not pull them, but cut them cleanly off with a sharp knife cot with scissors. When taken indoors, place them in tho shade, and reduce them to the re quired length of stalk with a sharp knife, bv which the tubes, thro' gh which they draw up the water, is permitted to ascend freely ; whereas, if the stems are bruised or lacerat ed, tho pores are closed up. Use pure water to Bet them in, or pure send in a slate of saturation, slicking the end of the stalks into it, bat not in a crowded manner. If in water alone it ought to be changed daily, and a thin slice should be cut off the ends of the stalk at every change of water Ex.

A. GOELZKR, Master, J. J. Delchamp, Secretary. Remarks. Wo most heartily en dorso the above action of tho Gulf City Grange, ("Mobile Ala,) and would earnestly iccommend a like action on the part of every Southern Grange.
