Our intelligent correspondent frmn the coast, a Creole sugar planter, doubtlems the best informed suganplanterin tie State, hav ing read all he could $nd in the Freaeh and English language on the culture and manu facture of sugar, besides being a pactiea1 and successful sugar planter, this week con tributes the following facts and figures for the columns and the readers of the Banner. To make 10 hogaheads of engar-12,000 pounds, and 12,000 pounds of molasses, in twenty-four ;houis, the planter uses 400,000 pounds of cane, which contains 10 per cent. Qf fikbde or baggasse, or 40,00(0 pounds of fibrine, and 360,000 pounds of juice. S9 ig.gBaume' would give 100 pounds of sugar and 511 pounds of water. Peligot and others say that cane juice, when perfectly defecated, and neutralized, contain only sugar and water; and if rapidly evapora ted at a low temperature would form no mo lasses. 100 pounds of cane juice at a density of 9 degrees, Baunme' are equal to 16-37 pounds of sugar. 360,000 pounds cane juice, yielding 16-37 cent. of sugar, give 58,932 pounds of agar. Many planters make } sugar, and - molasses. Sugar, 39,288 pounds at 10cts. $3,928 80; molasses, 19,644 pounds at 5cts. $982 20: Lost in sugar and molasses, 40,932 pounds, equal to $3,111. 19,644 pounds molasses contain 75 per cent. of prismatic, or cane sugar. This worked over, 50 per ,pt. ef the sugar can be saved, 7,366. 50 unds, It e5ts, $368 32, saved. To obtain the whole sugar contained in sugar, cane, the cane must be sliced and dif fused, or macerated. The baggasse then be comes very good provender, and 40,000 pounds of fibrine would be equal to 25 tons of hay, at $15, worth $375. This and the sugar saved from molasses, added to the daily loss, would amount to $3,854 32. The appaiatns needed to make this saving would cost about $10,000. HAWLEY'S TUBULAR EVAPORA TOR. Mr. Hawley has an invention for making sugar which bids fair to be a success. We saw it at .work at Mr. Price's plantation a few days since, and think well of it, princi pally on account of its fuel saving qualities. In its details, so far as cleaning the jnice is concerned, it will need a few improvements. Mr. Hawley claims that he can make be tween three and four hundred gallons of sor ghukn molasses, or more than a hogshead of sugar, without brnin more than one cord of wood. His $paral for making from three to four hogsheagl of sugar in a day costs $1000, and larger ones in proportion. The apparatus has three kettles or pans, the battery. in the middle. The battery is divided by a partition into two apartments. The interior of the furnace, above, and on each side, and in front, except the opening to receive wood, is of thin, sheet copper. The juice in the first department is over the fur nace, and by its two aides, and in front, the sheet copper separatingit from the fire. This ptsentsa large heating surface of thin eop per. At the back of that furnace are nmyar flues, each two and a half inoes and long enough to extend thro tery and grand into the smoke chim The dfae, and heat, and smoke pras through thee fines after they leave the fr , on ting off the heat from these flues. ' pre vents burning the sugar when taking off a strike. The juice is passaed from the grand to the first kettle by a large pipe connecting the two, a stop cock admitting or cutting off juice from the grand at the pleasure of the sugar boiler. The strike is drawn from the battery through a large pipe. The great merit of this invention, if we do not err in our judgment, is that it presents a large heating surface to the furnace. The heat t ad in the rmt apartment is in a grea easure taken up by the battery and grand a it paesse through the fty-aix fles, each pf thin metal, and having a surface out -defd mote than ninety square inches to the fot, anad all of these always emteloped in syrup, or juice.. The juice on one side, and the fe on the othr, eaupy more thab three times the arhse t say of the evaporating pans ve have seen.

P`- ! " AN EXAMPLE FOR TH PEOPLE OF. With all bo i~ dence, there 1 ae still vasle lespns t~realearned by us, irn people whoin t l inflation of our vanity, we afect to espise Enjoying priv l-ges wia seveq yet fell t the lot of any nation, we have outstripped all the nations of the earth in the facility with which we have relinquished them. Four years' war has reduced us to a depth of servility not reached by other people after centuries of op pression. With a cause to inspire us, around which, a few years ago, our enthusiastic fancy threw a mantle of the brightest glory, we now deem it a favor to be permitted to crave the pardon of our conqueror for having es poused it; we have abdicated our principles as freemen, and given our sanction to that monstrous heresy of modern politics, that might makes right. We have tamely sub mitted to the ostracism of those gallant men who battled for the lost cause-have raised to offices of emolument, and trust, and po wer, those who triumph in our misfortunes. Out upon our vaunted freedom; never invoke we again the spirit of our forefathers. We might have stood aloof while the chains were forgi ing with which our limbs were to be shackled; but cursed be the thirst of gain, the last gol den chance of asserting the freedom of our souls was lost; we rushed precipitately in, and put on those chains ours4 yes. In another land, not favored as ours by a partial Providence; unequal in resources, and in the number of its inhabitants; girded aroue d its gera lhically insignificant cir cnmfence ~ ua Ia, whose proud boaht of "ruling the wave" has never been success fully contested. Yet, seven centuries of bloodshed have not been able to drown the spirit of independence. In that little land, freedom still can shriek, and at that shriek the heart of her oppressor quails. "Freedom's battle once began, Bequeath'd from bleeding sire to son, Though batled oft, is ever won." Ay, the spirit of freedom is never crushed Where it once ezis ,it abides forever. Chains cannot overpow r it; dungeons can not imprison it; blood itself cannot drown it; if denied an asylum on earth, it goes back to its native heaven. Hell is the home of tyranny. " In these remarks, the writer refers to recent occurrences in Ireland. In Ireland, as must be known to any one interested in the politi cal agitation of our day, we are set the exam pie of a people who have stood alone mfr seven hundred years, protesting, at the sacrifice of all they held dearest in life, against the rule of an usurper. Even o,.after that long period of trial, my native country, when call ed upon to send her representative to the British Parliament, in placaf choosing a minion of a hostile power, a greedy office seeker of the government whose protesting is felt only in the clanking of its chains, she repairs to the convicts' cellt and there selects the man she judges fit to reltesent her. The most chqrished memories of our late causeless struggle cling to the Hermit of For tress Monroe. Opinions may differ as to the merits of that struggle and those who were the ehief actors in it; all, however, agree in regarding Jefferson Davis as its sublimest impersonatioh. Yet, what Southerner e*r dreamt, in the boldest enthusiasm of South ern chivalry, of voting Jefferson Davis back into Congrees t Still, Ireland has done a bol der thin Her felon, unlike ours, whom the spirit freedom, not yet extinct in this conntr ould not suffer to be brought to trial, was tried and convicted, b a jury condemned to consort with the most degra ded of his race; a scholar, precluded from the distractions of literary relaxation; a Chris tian, shat in, as far as human tyranny could shut in any one, from every glimpse of heaven. Our nature revolts at the slightest interference with the economy of even brute society; O'Donovan Rossas' arms threw them selves open in a spasm of conjugal affection the wife of his bosom was torn from his em brace; the little babe she carried in her arms was not permitted to lisp its father's name. To practical men-to the men who rule our utilitarian age-to the solid men of this fnan cering country of ours, O'Donovan Rossa would be, to all human intents and purposes, dead, but, thank God, merit is still apprecia ted on earth, and this the men of Tipperary have not unlearned. They have elected O'Donovan Roses for their representative in the British Parliament, and in the British Parliament they will be represented by none other. For their devotion to the sacred cause of liberty--their earnest appeal from tyranny to right-their fearless assertion, in the very teeth of coatemporanemus cowardice, that man seed notle a slave, those Tipperary pa triots challenge the admiration of the world, and have entitled themselves to the gratitede of every man hn this earth, who who wheald be free.

So far as we are able to learn planters feel utterly unable to pay the prices of 1869. The disastrous failure of the eaop this year has thrown a deed ever the hopes of most of the planters. LIst year S Mary pad nearly te dollas highd wages than they pald in Terrebonne, Leamrehe, or In the coast parishes. Next year we judge wages will range on the Teche about $1- , fqr ordinary el hands,$17 to $18, r gs hands, ad\. for t bhest.
