Ye promised our subscribers to ise: theni, in our present number, 39n'oUniit of an experiment made EUTthe course-of the last year, -ith Guan6 and Plaster on corn and l ovr.- The corn land experimented n, was ten acres of a field df -about - AIhirty-the whole much exhausted, ind tuined out' some years since, and ieice-grown up In sedge and poverty grass. Thait part manurea we consid ered the poorest part of the field. In the previous winter the land we plow ed with one of Ruggles, Norse, & Mison's Centre draft plows, which run froin 5 to 3 inches deep, and complete fly reversed the sod. This plow was followed by a one-horse sub-soil grop her, which run some three or four inch e4s deeper, making in the whole from eight to ten inches. The soil of the part experimented on, is somewhat light, having a due admixture of sand The subsoil a stiff red clay. The land thub prepared lay until the usual time of planting, when it was laid oiT with a-short narrow plow, at a distance of Vie feet distance, and in this furrow-, .he corn.wis planted three feet apart 'on the iow, and covered by ridging - 1ghtly on it; care being taken j.:ot to :stArb the light coat of vegetable arnatter that had been buried by the tiniig plow. And we will here state t6t, tbr- the same reason the crop was alfivated altogether superficially with he tivator -and sweep one time e v oh e 6b hoeing. .Mark this brother fai.era, and rellect ho w mnch ir night be'saved in Che -'ilture of oUr crops by -properly prelpar"ng the ased.lFor we assure yoti, Vroim our own experience, that land having but Alight coat of vegetable matter on it, . hus preparod will need no plow in cul rp--for, even if it is dnot rni to . thrd. ud .2ir en w %va or, harrow, or iweep only; and wit. either Iof w hich the ground may be paSe oover rapidly and with conpara 1&ely light labor to both men and Worie. Excuse this digression, and we will proce. d to state how our ma nuro was prepared, -applied, tand the ri"stlb. In preparing our compost we ti' the Peruvian guano and plaster of Paris, ground, coal dust, or rather the serapings from the coal-house floor, which was passed through a coarse seive, and leached ashes, in the follow Ing order and proportions. First, a bushel of coal dust (as we shall term it) spread to about two inches thick ness; second, one gallon (1-2 peck) guano, spread unilfrmnly over the coal bed; third, the same quantity (pr ba bly twice as much as was necessary) ..plaster; fourth, one bushel of coal dust; fifth, half a bushel of leached aih e. The same course was continued uitil the quantity of guano and plaster pr,ocured was exhausted. The heap thus formed, remained undisturbed for two weeks, when it was shovelled uver-which we were convinced at-the time should have been done earlier. ii order to prevent ftihe tllg oi' plaster, wh'4h we were not able again to reduce to a powder. This setting -we presunge was occas'onally by the moisture imbibed from the damp coal ~duts4 animignt have beenm prevenated fahife lng over the heap inuanedi 4tely af'ter it was fmnished. Tun APPLIcATIONs.-Of this nix - ture we spread in a circle of 18 to S24 inches diameter, around each hill of corn, when from six inches to a foot high,.one jill, and followed with a light -running cultivator, as near on each Bide of the corn as could be not to tear it up. This partially covered aid mixed the compost wvit': thme s oil. In this state it was left, though a drought of sonie weeks, without ap parent benefit. After the first rain, however, we saw that. the corn was taking the start of that in thme same ield not manured. It continued to gain onit to thL mtuit o tihe j., croli, and resulted in a gain of 33 per *cent. -over the unmanured portion. Which was ascertained by gathering two rosmanured, leaving two, one .anured and one iunmanur-ed, and gathering the next two~ uinmiianured. The corn was measured in the ear on: nasrdmore, but was bte na ,pearauce than that from he unimanu red: rowa. .Ily. caoluationi it -will bo~ asce-rtainedl t-'hAt the quami ty of tloth guanmo and plpster applied to the hilt was but the ~ne eleventh part. or a jill, or one 9 itysscond part of a jill of each. c4i)egjaently, there becing 292 hills, 6eb .three, in an 1cere, it will re. i]tregh1out haf bu-l of each gu-. no iimuiclasitr to an dnre. CL.Ov PU Of the above omixture we spre adVL mnmi, a halmf bussmuls on onte a peck each of guano and plaster, and j whili resulted in a most decided im- - provertnt o the 'crop. We regret that ive did not leave a portion unma nuiala thit we might have ascertained the Aif'erence in the product. Judg- h ing from appearanes however we have < little doubt but that it was doubled by 4 the application.-Parnier & Planter. I MPORTANCE OF COAL DUST.-Sci ence has spoken the importance of carbon, and we now state that a soil without -carbon rarely, if ev er produces a perfect plant. Our object is not at present to show its importance as a necessary constitu ent of a good soil, but to awaken in the mind, the value of this element in the economy of farm management. We see thousands of loads of this useful matter, lying about, consider. ed by many, as a cumberer of the ground. What we are going to say of its value, we say knowingly, and we ap peal to all who have coal dust at their commana, to ilse and test it. Carbon i3 a porous body and read ily absorbs ammonia, (of the impor tance of ammonia we need say noth ing,) this being the fact, its utility is clearly established, and its applica tion as elearly pointed out. The an nual loss of ammonia from the cow pen, stables, horse lots &c., du ring the year-., is very great This prodigality in one of the principle el. (11nt8 in the pabulum (food) of plants, can catily be arrested by use of coal dust, and sn fixed that when put on the soil, will supply the necessary auvunt regnired by the plant. Our mainer of doing this is as follows: we cover the floor of eve ry stable about four inches thick, then cover to any depth with leaves from the forest, pine straw, or aby other organip rouhnes we may i t lT" ifj'has aozum aied we take it out and lien it; if we have coal dust enough, we cover the top of the pen with it., this keeps the heat in and the water iom rains out, pre venting leaching, and other loss, and saves a great amount of weight in hauling out. 3.

'We would iilingly describe the process of mnanufaicture, but could noit do so intelligibly without proper d awings. TIhe following skeleton may, hiowever', serve to give some idea of' the successive steps in the process. Th'le rags, as we said be fore- are nasd into the recnnci se. ry of the building. There they are sorted, dusted and 'cut, and thence are pas'd down into the Cylinder Bleach. This is a large iron hollow cylinder, six or eight feet in diame ter, and fifteen to twenty feet long. It is revolved by water power, and when filled and in motion, a stream of steam constantly passes through it. This gives the rags their first bleathing. After this they are pass ed into the engines-a sort of iron tub, at the bottom of which is an in clined plane, travel'sod with knives, with their edges slanting upwards. above which revolves a sb'cession of. blades, set-into a cylinder. In these engines the rags are thoroughly washed, and slightly reduced to pulp. Thence they are passed into the steep chests for a thorough bleaching. Thence the heating en gines receive, and, with their sharp knives, reduce them to a complete paste. This is passed into the stuff chest, whence it is transferred to the machines, whieh., through their suc. cession of rollers, and hollow cylin ders heated with steam, roll it out into dry white paper, ready for the folder. The web of paper, before it reaches the cutters, may be of. any width up to t6 inthes.the width of the machines, and its length is limit ed only by the supply of.the pulp that being constant, the operator may roll out a cotinuous web of in many thousand yards as he chooses.. -Mr. Walker, the agent of the Company, is now receiving from the mill daily supplies of book, news, and brown pap'er.

The vast re sults to flow, not only to this town, but to the portion of the State through which it runs, in developing resources of agricultural wealth by affording facilities to market, pre sented considerations of no little im portance to the philanthropist and pa triot. In 1848, when only about $800,. 000 were subscribed in the capital stock. It was decided by more than two thirds of the stockholders to begin work. This was regarded by many as a fool hardy adventure, and failures were predicted and ridiculed in overy direction except here and along the line, and even here for a time, with a few honorable except ions, the final success was almost dlespaired of. But an energy and dletermtiination animated those who commenced, to press forward-, relyinig as they did - ' r the progress of events, then faint 13y lawning to guide them onward. Ini the winter of 1848, the Legis ^lnture ofi 8euth Carolinai made a subscription or--200,000 in the stoek of th&'8. C. iR. Jt Co., then at (i8; conditioned to be p.eLwhen tesom~ of $750,000 of capital sw nwas subiscrihed from other sources, to he paid in as the work progressed. Th le condition of this subscription was, after hard exertions, complied with, and in 1850 the Legislature of North Carolina subscribed a like sun in the stock of the W. & R. R. Co., then at 50. Neither of- these sums were immediately availaible, but still the work progressed, to be paid for in the stock of the (Company a t par. The con tractors in South Carolina, clinging oni with a deter milintiontiot to be bafilled by croak ing or predictionis of defeat. '.Ifhe town of Wilmington also came for nward, after hard fought contests, anid put up her $100,000 and issued her bonds to pay the stock oni which the a term. With these bonds, arnd the sales of the S. C. R. Rt. stock, which had adIvanced. the B3oard of Directors detem ineid to purchase 6000 tons of Iron, and contracts were made at $41 and $42 for the samne, deliverable in Charleston' and Wilmiritoim The, Compaiy t1e canrie. foi-ward wV Ivith their. mortga e bordl, (the C4 iyments of stock not being li c :ient to justify large contracts, oeir tr ,urther purchase of Iron, as instal- ic nenlt Were payable every 90 days,) s1 x portiobf which are not Yet real ized. ' By putting t'heie bnhi's in 'mark 'c et to the extent of $600,000, 'with t a fair exhibit of the Conipany's.pros. r pects. public confidence was secur4ed and the nett'sales reached within a fraction, if not quite 90 to the 100; a sale under the circunistances far bet ter than the averge of new wors, withas little as was then done. The I'snVe of the iron, 7,000 tons, and 8 locomotives, were secured by these bonds, which put the Com pany beyond contingency. The saving in theo riahsactiobs, compared with the present prices of iron, is scarcely less than $400,000, and in the -work, compared with the present prices of labor, perhaps $1 000,000. The Bonrd in obr judg nent 'have appfied these fund Vo th' best advantage. Instead of exp'end ing them on costly points of the road, they haye pushed forward the track from both termini and are thus enable'd from the income of the1 road to realise something to meet fu ture demands. The work across Ea 'lea' Island is let, and will, we fearh, b'.coinplete'd by 1st July. The Whole of the 'cylinders have arrived from the foundry for the Pee Dee Bridge, and that work is -in effi cient hands. The track from the eastern terminus is being pushed for w'hd tvith energy, and we. are begin ning to feel n'd' soob will i-ealite its effects.

Sooner than We .ebtA; tooner even than we now tlink, will the re sources of a region of timber and an improving cotton region be in a few hours of us, and in view of it, is there any one who regrets the invest ments made, either by themselves as individuals, or by the corporation ? The town is paid in the increased price of its real estate alone. .. The Board of Directors have had the foresight to calculate coming events, and have atnple facilities in a water front of 1 1-2 miles to accoin modate any amount of trade. The reliable resources of the Com pany amount now to upwards of $400,000, and we learn that the ostimate of the Engineer in that (in cluding $50,000 for contingencies.) $450,000 will finish the road with depots, care, inachlinery and every thing to p~ut it im successful opera tion. Sotne of these resources cannot at once be realized; a part of the stock subscription is not yet due, and a part is unilaidl, (we regret to say the greater portion in Wilmington.) and rather than delay the work the Boar are making arrangremcnts to e ll $200,000 2nd mortgego b36nds, 1 whe tis thought will sell (o ou yar asthesecurity,1-ow is at leadisd.600 000 fo ,400,000.
