FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.
Bice and Cane Crops of Louisiana.
The following crop items are taken
from the Plaquetuine (La.) Observer
of the 26ih of October, which is cer
tainly an encouraging outlook for the
planters of our sister State :
"No season was ever more propi--xioliTTBarriho'
present for rice. The
river supplied an abundance of water
nt all limes and the heavy rains that
fell during the summer did their full
share in filling and perfecting the
grain.
The weather for harvest was not
unfavorable, and the supply of labor
was ample ; hence the entire ciop was,
secured in excellent order, and we
hear no complaints ot stack-burned or
damaged rice.
The crop is undoubtedly the largest
ever raised in this parish, and beyond
all comparison tde finest in quality.
The whistle of the steam thre sher is
heard in every, direction ; every boat
goes up loaded with rice, and all our
mills are running day and night pre
paring the golitea grain for market.
Our rice planters were never in a more
prosperous condition ; the sale of their
Hplcudid crops will enable them to
meet nil their obligations, make all
neoewtary improvements on their plan
tations and largely extend the erea of
iht'ir lamls cultivated in rice.
The cultivation ot rioe is extcndiiiK
on every side, and Louisiana is already
the second State iu the Union in the
production of the great staple, and
will be at no very remote period the
first.
Accounts from all portions of the
State represent she cane crop as being
Kplcmlid almost beyond all precedent,
and should the weather continue fa
vorable during the grinding season,
which has already commenced, the
crop will, according to acreage, be
equal it not superior to any heretofore
made in this Slate.
Plaquemines seems to be no excep
tion to tho rule, tor cane here presents
a more magnificent appearance than it
has done at any time since 1861 ; the
most prolific year on record, when the
crop reached 459,410 hogsheads.
On nearly all the plantations in this
parish the stand is even and regular,
the cane unusually large, perfect and
full of juice, and is at least two weeks
in advance of that of any season since
tho warjhence grinding has commenced
at Ht'hiir and several other great plan
tation. The yield so far is exceedingly
good and will doubtless be largely in
creased as the cane becomes more ma
ture and tho juice more concentrated.
On tho whole the promise of a full
crop is brilliant in the extreme, should
no untoward weather come to mar the
flattering prospect that now gladden
the hearts of our enterprising planters.
Large Things
Courier Jour, al.l
Thivk what an agricultural
fair must be m California with cab
bages five feet in circumference, pump,
kins weighing a hundred pounds, cu
cumbers a yard long, and peaches and
pt-ara as big as your head (may be).
The fi'Ht fair was held at San Francis
co in 1854; but it was a very small af
fair indeed compared to the one held
there last month. Besides iIio'fiiow
of animals, mineral and agricultural
wealth, there was a feminine eques
trian tournament, a grand (shooting
contest, and an elegant address from
llio I'lesiilent of the Association, Mr.
lSoruck. From the following perora
tion, which is not at all overdone, it
will be seen in what degree of appre
ciation the CalifornianB hold their
Slate: "On the grounds and at the
pavillion is to bo found everything
from a cheese to a trolling race, from
oil painting to a header, from a La
Crosse match to a collection of metals,
and from a platoon drill to a plate of
figs. Tho Stato Pair is in fact the
World's Fair, for California is a world
of itself, whether considered lrom a
climate or cosmopolitan or scenic point
of view. There is no language I hat
does not find its echo here, no product
oi the earth that cannot be raised, no
animal that can not be reared. It is a
babel of tongues, the frigid and the
torrid mark our borders; the AlpB are
surpassed, the Sahara equalled. We
have everlasting snows and eternal
solitude. There are whirling pillars
of hot sand that keep sentinel guard
beside ice-cold streams, and the chill
faced anemone blossoms iu the same
garden with tho palm tree. Our min
eral wealth has been and is yet the
wonder ot the world, and our miners
the most scientific, intelligent and
persevering. Neither Switzerland nor
Italy have such lakes. Surrey and
Kent in Merrie England can not ex
hibit such wheat fields. Sicily is ri
valed for olives, Spain equalled for or
anges, our figs are approaching those
of Iiarbary, our raisins those of Mala
ga. From the turnips of Sweden to
the spices of Cayenne, from the pines
of Norway to the magnolia of the
"Sunny South; ' our list extends. With
in her four boundaries, mountains on
three side1, and the Pacific on the
fourth, California presents the world
in miniature "
The Philosophy of Strikes'
From tho Oil City Dcrrlck.J
"Where are you going with the pup
pies, my little man?" asked a gentle
man of a small boy yesterday, whom
he met with three pups in a basket.
"Goin' to drown them," was the
reply.
"I want a pup for my little boy to
play with; what do you say to letting
mo take one of them?'
'I will sell you one,' spoke up the
boy with true American enterprise.
'I will sell you this yellow one for half
a dollar, the spotted one for 15 cents,
and the spotted one is worth a dol
lar.' 'I think my boy would like the spot
ted ono best, but you ask too much for
it. Tou had Intended drowning all of
them; but I will give you 25 cent and
save you the trouble of drowning tho
spotted One.'
'Twenty-five cents for that spotted
pup!' exclaimed the boy, 'I can't stand
it; taxes is high; rent is high; groceries
is high; oil is down and going lower
oh, no, I can't take less than one dol
lar.' 'But you intend to drown '
Take tho black ono for 75 cents.'
'My little boy wouldn't like the
black one.'
'Take the yallcr ona at half a dol'ar,
and ho is dog cheap.'
'I don't like his color.'
'Well, then, yon had better tell
your little boy to play with his toes.'
And he continued on his way to the
river, remarking that ''no party can
dead-beat his way on me these times.'
The Last of the Davises.
DKATII OF TUB ONLY SON OP TUB EX
l'HKSlDKNT OF TUB CONFEDERACY.
Baltimore Gazette
Mr. Jefferson Davis lufs outlived all of
his sons, and when he dies the family
name will become extinct;
His oldest son, Jefferson Davis, Jr.,
who died near Memphis the other day
of yellow fevcr.had scarcely passed his
twenty first birthday, and though he
did not inherit tho intellectual ability
of his father, ho was a young man of
considerable promise. Early in the
summer,and before the fever broke out,
young Davis went North with his sis
ter aud her husband. The latter re
turned for some purpose and was
stricken down with the fever. When
his wiie'heard ol it she insisted upon
going to him, and young Jeff accom
panied his Bister. Before the husband
was convalescent ins wile was
attacted. Young Davis nursed his
sister through her illness, and in a few
days she becamo the nurse and he
the patient. Four days later he died.
In 1864, while Mr. Davis was president
ol the Confederacy, he returned to his
residence from a short visit to the cap
itol, aud found, lying in ono of the
halls, the dead body of his second son,
whom he had left but an hour or two
before the picture of health. The child
was but five years ot age, and during
the absence of the family fell lrom a
rear balcony to a paved yard beneath
and crushed his skull. lie lived but a
short while. This boy, Joseph, was
the most intelligent of the family and
a special favorite with all tho great
men who in those days frequented his
father's house. lie was a bright boy,
and tho whole city of Richmond
mourned his death, Willie, the young
est son of Jefferson Davis, was born in
Richmond during tho war, and died
when but threo of four vears of age.
There are now left but two children,
both girls. The eldest, Maggie, was
married about a year ago, and it was
while caring for her that young Jeff.
met the terrible destroyer. Miss Win-
nio, the other daughter, is still at
school.
A Tramp's Romance-
Tho talk in Leadville, Col., is about
a vagabond ot a miner, Bassick, who
tramped into town without a cent in
his pocket and jumped into an income
of $2,000 a day. lie began to dig in
Tyndall Hill, and three feet below the
surface struck a rotten chalky sub
stance that formed the entire eminence.
Everybody laughed at the hep-gar and
derisively called his find "Bassick's
Whitewash Mine." But Bassick found
the stuff rich in carbonate of lead car
rying silver, and.digging down, found
boulders and pebbles that were coated
with silver chloride. From the surface
down to 200 feet the miue has paid
richer than any other in the country,
yielding thus far $64,000 a month.
A notorious thief preached to a
North Carolina Baptist congregation
six months before he was found out.
His conduct during that half year was
excellent, his sermons eloquent, and
ho says he intended to turn over a
new leaf.
What is an editor? An editor's
bizncss is to write editorials, grind out
poetry, sort manuscripts, keep a migh
ty big waste-basket, steal matter, file
other people's battles, take white beans
and apple sass for pay when he can
get it, work nineteen hours out of
twenty-four, and be damned by every
body. Herald and Presbytery.
The entire amount of gold in the
world at present is estimated at $7,
000,000,000 in value in United States
coinage. This immense sum is hardly
comprehensible to the mind, but if it
wero put in a solid mass it would
measure only seventeen feet high,
twenty-right feet wide und fifty-six
feet long.
Widow Doubhnon, having heard
that "pnrlor matches" are extremely
dangerous, has ordered her daughter
to take her beau into the kitchen aud
do their courting there hereafter.
