THE CULTURE OF TOBAOGO, Ac
The following letter addressed to Meanrs. Row
land & Green, will be read with interest. It it from
one of our first Tobftcco Planters in this State:
Montgomery- Farm, Trigg county, )
Februarv 3d. 1853. f
G-ettlbmex : In reply to your favor of the oast J
aatc, requesting us to give you some Tobacco seed,
from which our beat mumtfacturing article is pro
duced, together with the most approved method of
cultivating, curing and prizeing, we would respect
fully state, that we have this day forwarded to you
by steamboat, a box of yellow prior tobacco seed,
which kind we have found bc9t for manufacturing
.purposes, from the fact that it has a broad fine leaf
with small fibers, and in ripening it naturally ac
quires a yellow color, from whence its name ig de-
'rived, and is susceptible of being cured with less
fire than any other variety.
The seed should be sowed in rich ground, tho
roughly burnt and well prepared; the beds then
tramped or rolled, and closely covered with fine
brush to protect the young plants from frostand the
drying winds of spring. After the plants arc about
the size of a half dollar, the brush should be remov
ed. Much depends upon the nature of the soil and
manner of cultivation. If the ground ia very rich,
the tobacco' will be very large, and consequently
coarse, and liable to fire or spot before it matures.
It is therefore best to grow manufacturing tobacco
on fre3h oak land. As soon as the plants are of suf
ficient size, the' should be planted on hills about
three aud a half feet apart, and well cultivated until
itarrivesat the topping stage, the cultivation should
then be discontinued. The plants then pinned to
within six inches of the surface, and topped to 8 or
10 leaves. It would be unnecessary to speak of the
importance of keeping it free from worms aud suc
cors. A majority of the planters who aim at mak
.ing the above description of tobacco fail in conse
quence of cutting it before it is thoroughly matured
too much importance cannot be attached to this
suggestion.lor the best management cau never make
a good article out of green tobacco.
If tobacco is cut in the heat of the day, it is apt
to auburn, if cut in the morning whilst the dew is
on it, is liable to break and be disfigured by dirt
and trash; hence the evening is the most suitable
time generally for cutting. It should be hung upon
the sticks as soon as it can be done without braking;
for it is a fact worthy of note, that the more tobac
co is withered, the easier it is to be bruised. We
find four feet and a half the most convenient length
for a tobacco stick, upon which we hang seven
plants. It should be crowded on the scaffold, and
suffered to remain in that situation for about forty
eight hour?, and then scattered so as to permit the
air and rays of the sun to pass freely between the
p'arti. The length of time it is to 'remain on the
gcafibld must be determined by the state of the
weather, if it could be entirely cured in the sun it
would be a)i the better, but as soon as we discover
tliere is a prospect for rain, it is to be carried to the
barn, and placed upon the tear poles, leaving a space
of twelve inchesbetween the sticks. Aud now the
process of firing is to commence, which forms a very
critical period in the curing of tobacco for a few
hours: bad management at this time will forever
blast the prospect of making a fine article. Dry
sound bark is an excellent article to use at first, be
cause it produces more heat in proportion to the
quantity of smoke than almost any description of
fuel except charcoal The fires should be email at
first and so distributed that the tobacco may receive
as near as possible an equal portion of heat. The
temperature of the house may be raised about as
high as it is in the sun, and kept at that point from
'21 to 30 hours. Dry, sound seasoned wood may
be used, aud the fires gradually increased. ; As soon
fas the leaf is entirely cured, the firing may be dis
continued; unless the atmosphere is very damp, in
"which case it must be continued until the stack is
cured also, otherwise the sap will pass from the Steele
into the leaf and change its color after h is cured.
Two important difficulties present themselves if it is
suffered to hang too long it will loose much", both
pf its fine color and texture; on the other hand, if
;itis put into bulk too soon it will carry with it all
Ui bod effects of the smoke. In order to avoid
onchaB much is possible, wc think it advisable to
-take it down before the cold harsh weather of win
ter, assort it carefully, making three qualities; tic it
up neatly, six leaves to the hand and bulk it down.
In the spring, or when the weather becomes mild
-and pleasant, we re-hang it, for the purpose of get
ting it in the proper order for .prizing, A warm
.season is altogether essential fbr this purpose, and
jttet as soon as it can be handled without cracking
the leaf, it is to be taken down and put in bulk
again it is then ready to go in the hogshead. Wc
make our hogsheads 5G inches in length, and -14 in
'che in diameter, which is much larger than those
generally used by planters of your portion of the
State. We aim to put- in about 1,400 pounds when
"designed for 3'our market, when it is intended for
the New Orleans market from 1800 to 2,000 pounds.
Much more might be said in detail upon the subject
of the culture and management of fine tobacco, but
we deem it unnecessary at present We shall be
pleased at all time3 to hear from you.
Ysvy respectfully, yours, "

OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS.
The state of our relations with foreign govern
ments i3 of such really delicate nature, that the
greatest circumspection will be necessary to prevent
serious collisions. That Gen. Pierce will .be found
equal to the emergencies of the high position he oc
cupies, is a. fact upon which we do not think there
can exist any reasonable doubt, with any acquaint
ed with the incidents of his life or the sterling traits
of his character. The Jackson rule will be Ins rule,
asklibthin- but what is right, and submit to noth
ing that is wrong."
?u iietides the general feverish and heaving stale of
6fEuropeah affairs, Ave have unsettled, a Central
t-American question with England, made more crit
ical bv the differences existing among our states-
men as to-the construction of the Monroe doctrine,
and the blunders of whig diplomacy. . In this con
nection we c6py the following extract from the New
York Tribune :

us that the State of.Honduras had taken possession
of "the English settlement of Limas," and had de
termined to hold it by force. This place Limas is a

tates a.forcible rescue of Ruatan. with a view of
tasting tne'gqarantees ot the United btates, as rc-
tpeuis ooiomzauon in central America.
The river Roman, it should be remembered, flows
into the Eca near Truxillo, the principalport of Hon
duras. In addition to this difficulty with England, com
plicated as it is, by whig diplomacy, we also have
the Tehuantepec affair with Mexico. These are
plain and practical issues between our government
and those of Mexico and England. The tameness
of our past policy will be found a serious embar
rassment to any honorable adjustment of these mat
ters, and may lead to solemn involvements. With
nations as with individuals there are causes justify
ing a resort to the last arbitrament of life against
life. It certainly is to be hoped that no such ne
cessity will arise, and we arc confident, that if these
conflicts can be honorably settled without war, it
will be done. If.not, Pierce like Polk will take
the responsibility of vindicating national honor, and
leave his conduct to the approval of the people.
Whig papers are full of such miserable cant 'as
"Young America" and f'old fogies." We are not
aware that there is any such line of demarcation
between members of the-same party. All united
in the election of Gen. Pierce. And all will be
found equally ready to give a cordial and consistent
support to his administration. The only hope for
whigs ever again to regain power is by democratic
divisions. We cannot believe that democrats will
be foolish enough to' gratify whigs by permitting
these dissensions. Sucli a course would be absolute

The Tehuantepec resolutions of Mr. Mason were

only strengthen them. Gen. Cass' resolutions, and
Mr. Mason's, are strong with the people, and this
fact alone will help them through Congress. Eve
ry great measure requires an outside pressure of
public opinion to break through legi?Iative prejudi
ces or party combinations in the National Parlia

from which we learn that he early shewed a taste
f0r .mechanics, and at the age of eleven he attracted
the notice of Count Platen, who obtained for him a.
cadetsbip m an engineer corps. He afterwards en
tered the Swedish army; and was employed in the
survey of Northern Sweden. While occupied with
this favorite study of mechanics, he projected his
flame engine. In 182G he visited England. While
therein 1829, he competed for the prize offered by
the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, for tbebest
locomotive, and produced the wonderful speed, at
that time, of fifty miles an hour. His propellor, his
seiin-cylindncal engine, his centrifugal blower, his
distance instrument for measuring distances at sea,
hisliydrotastic guage. his pyrometer, and other in-
genius inventions, have already made the name of
Ericsson famous in the sciontfic world. The calor

rejected' by men of science asanimpractibility, and
as involving the absurdity of perpetual motion.

finally conceded the practibility of the invention,

WEEKLY REVIEW OF THE MARKET.
The weather for the past week has been for the most part,
excessively cold Tuesday, however, there was a breaking
off, and rain fell copiously during the entire day. j.
Dusinoss has tot been as active during the week as might1
have been reasonably expected, in view of the high stage o
the river. New Orleans boats have been arriving and de-'
parting continually, and a large amount of Cotton and To
bacco have gone forward.
Corrox. The week's business has been small, owing in
part to the small quantity ofTering, and in part to a dispo
sition on the part of buyers to holdofl) regarding the ruling
rates as too high. We left the market dull at the close of
our last Weekly Itcview, in the small sales at 7Ja3 60.
Thursday there was no improvement, and wc heard of no
material change in quotations. Friday there was a rather
more active demand, though the small quantity on the mar
ket limited transactions. Sales were made at S 05. Satur
day ihc demand continued good, and tales were made at
8 05, and a small lot of extra fine brought S76. Monday
there was nothing doing, buyers being disposed to hold oil
in anticipation of the, Niagara's news, which was made pub
lic on Tuesday morning, giving accounts of an advance of
in Liverpool. Sales on Tuesday reached about 200 bales,
at 73aS Cd. '
Yesterday there was very little doing. About 100 bales
sold at 7uS Co.
The receipts of the week amount to IdSG, against 2S7S for
the same time last year, showing "a falling off this year of
1302. The total receipts since 1st Sept amount 1o 80,314,
against 2-1,411 for the same tipiclast year.
Toiiacco. Sales are being made almost daily at the dif
ferent warehouses. Prices vary from 3 to $G according to
quality. The best sale of the season so far was made on
Saturday of 3 hhds at 5 00, 6 00 and C 05. On Tuesday 18
hhds sold at Johnson & Horn's as follows: Nine hhds, the
crop of J. J. Williams, of Williamson county, sold at 8 05,
5 25, 5 35, 5 at 5 50, aud 1 at 5 70. Four other hhds sold at
"3 50, 4 45, 85 and 5J0. ' ;
Yesterday sales reached 40 hhds. as- follows:- 20 hhds. at
Johnson & Homo's at 4 60 to 5 SO; 14 at A. Hamilton's at
an average of 4 G5,!and G at an average of 5 70.
