Uood apples bare huou and me still pro duued, but do what we will tbo tree isaxlwaif erery where on the low lands, or, us I inuy term it, tbe coast basin. A few miles back on tbe higher lands or bills bordering the basin the apple tree attains a more rcspoctuble size. Ye mny note however, that one prominent cause of tbo inferiority of uiauy, if Dot most ot the trees, is the inferi ority of tbe stock furnished by irre sponsible tree peuloru or eveu un scrupulous nurserymen. The vi cious method ot grafting to pieces of roots instead of strong aud heal thy seedlings bus done incalculable injury, lor such gratts even under the most tavontblo circumstances of soil and climate never develop into first class trues, and while they aro ontiroly worth I ess on tue coast where the most vigorous never at tain a largo size. Great care thon should be taken to procure apple trees from conscientious uursery men who utterly ignore the vicious practice of prop.igr.tiug their stock by grafting to pieces of roots or suckers. For the apple the soil siiould be well drained aud of fair fertility at the start. Bone dust and ashes are tho best special fer tilizer; a mulching of long manure in winter or early spring added to those will give good results. Where broken shells or sand shells are to be found near at baud and consequently at small expeuse, nothing can be better, because ap plied in Jafge quantities they fur nish a fair proportion ot .phosphate of lime, besides the curbouute m its best form and saline tngredi ents of much value. Besides their manurial or fertilizing properties, their etl'ect iu loosening the soil nud repelling insects, as I shall advert to hereafter, is very great. The enemies of the apple tree ou tbe coast are few. The scale some times Is seen for this tbe remedy is any alkalinftjvanu, Boua or pot ash, lime water to which a little salt has beeu added is very efflcieut, but of all things I prefer soup. A wash of soan suds thickened with a little salt and lime, I eousider a speciQo against almost alt insects that attack fruit trees. Of all the most destructive is the apple borer, similar but not identical with, the peitcli worm, -rliiuh bores only tf- tveeit the hark and wood whils the former bores into the wood ami the tree never recovers trout the injury as i be wound never heals though the worm be removed, which is not tbe case with the 'peach. The ap pie borer si so does not eonliuo its attack to the collar or jutictiou of the trunk with the root, but it a rag or wisp of hay be hung on a fork of a limb the moth will lay its eggs there which is not' the case with the insect t at assails the peach tree, For protection against the iusecta that lay their eggs iu tbe apple tree, producing the de structive worm, a mound of lime or ashes Las beeu recom mended by most pomologicMl writers, and has become to be the recognixed reme dy, yet txH!riciice teaches me that it is iu most instances useless if not worse. While the h mo or ashes remain caustic they do repel iusee.ts, but after a ram or two they lose their causticity, cake and shrink from the body ot the tree which their alkaliue properties have left very tender and more tender and more tempting than before they were applied to the rjy that lays the borer producing egg. It olio has a pot tree or twojn the "yard piling the ashes fioin the house or kitch en around it every few days will prove a hi feet protection, beside being mu excellent-fertilizer, and it is from examples like this, nodoubt, that book makers liavo made their fine S4.mii theory of tho protective power of ashes aud lime. Far but ter than theso is puttiug round tbe collar of tbe tree from a peck to bushel ot very fine , shells, shell- sand op oven coarso sand, either of which are free tram the objections noted ubove uud will prove a good protection for one season. Very excellent also is smearing the body from the first limbs to the ground and removing tho dirt an inch be low the level with soap: f".V good soap, barorsot't will prove effective, but tills should bo done as early us the first ot April at least ami re peated two or three times during tho summer to prove a peifect pro lection. I -will add here that all the ubove remarks us to protection against inseets applies its well to other fruit trees, and especially to the pouch. . This article being more lengthy than I nould like. 1 conclude, by ua tiling a few varieties that have been fully tested and can bo safery re commended tor cultivation on the coast: lied Astrachan; Carolina lted June, Striped June, Ilomony, Uiaveustein, and Btiiotly for home use the Cheese.

Two Young Men of Fcfnland Pay a Tislt and Do Several Other Thlugs. Two young men at Fcrnland con eluded to pay a visit ou the evening of March 25. -After wearing out two blacking 'brushes on their Ko, 9's tlioy started with many antici pations of pleasure.' Their objective Kint was the residence of Mr. O., a farmer, who lives near Fernlaud, and who has three charming dangh ters. J. S. L. and J. W. F the young mcn,soou reached their desti. nation, and were met at the door by Mrs. 0., who cordially invited tliera to be seated. The young Indies soon came in the pari, also, Mr. E., their brother. Conversation flowed on smoothly and naturally, nnd time flew by "onangol wings" for our two nice young men. Mrs. G. step pod out, but soon returned aud told B. her son, that bo would bave to make a bee hive. J. W. F., asked if tho bees had swarmed, aud upon being answered affirmatively by Mrs. (i. ollereu his services to help make the hive. So did J. S. L.. So theyjall repaired to a shed in the In and began operations; it. sawed J. S- L. held tho plank while J.W.F looked on and whistled. The hive was soon ready. Two work benches wore then placed under the sapling. a small black gum, upon which tho bees bad settled; planks were laid across there, and the hive placed iu position. A rope was then 'tied to a limb mat aoovo tho bees by J. w F., who then asked B. to help him incline the sapling towards tho hive, aud asking J. S. L. to jar tho sapling with an ax. But J. S. L. wouldn't do it, but suggested that ho and K. pull on the rope, while J VV. F. jarred tbe sapling. This ar rangement was carried out. As the bees fell, then rose, and began to look around lor business openings, R. and J. 8. L. Incontinently fled, J. VV. F. didn't ruu, but he talked very fasti (The young ladies were looking, you know.) He hud not walked far, however, before a little tusu took L'uu ou tbo enr. , He rnu tlu'ti, yotitict ; but lil not get away befoie another singer took hiiu reutiy on tho oilier au iv'e. 1C and J. 3. L. kept at a safe distance, aud were w icked enmigh to laugh at the atlei'tiou displayed for J. W. F. by the Does. By this time some of the bees h id settled buck on the sail ling, and others ou the hive. J. tt. L. suggested that J. W. F. shake ?em gain, aud lw sarcastically remarked hat he had never s-u liees hived on the outside of a hive before, J. W. F. retorted that, at they seemed to know so much about it, they hud better utilize their knowledge for his benefit, and that of future gener ations. They respectfully declined, so J. W. F. had to shake 'em again. The fates wero against him, for in making his escaiie a boc with au ex ccedingly warm end got iu his work on the luckless youth's chin. J. S. L. laughed in such a diabolical manner that J. AY. F. determined on having littlo revenge. Contriviuf -to capture a lively little siuuer, he in troduced it into the month of J. S. a. shoe. The yell emitted by the ietiin of this piece of wickedness would have charmed au opera house. Ho gyrated very amusingly for awhile, then gntied his shoe from his foot and hurled it I torn him ; it struck a hound m the rear, who grablM'd it so fiercely that his teeth went through aud met. Elevating his tail, he struck out across the Acid with the shoe iu his mouth, add i s owner iu hot pursuit. The pursuit was useless, for the dog cleared tho field, jumped the fem e ami took to the woods. J. S. L. re turned, looking very unhappy. K. kindly hunted up an old o. 11 cow- udo hoot to replace the lose snoes . The bees now are all gone in the hive, and tbe young ladies, tt., and out two young men went In tho par lor. J. vv. l s. face was a sight. From each car depended what ap peared to bo an intlati'd toy balloon, a similar ornament seemed to be at tached to hia chin, aud resting on his breast. After a few minutes he put on lits hat and 'started to go. iljiiiK'inn" tonus in front ot the mirror, the 'sight was too much for it. itiid It snawed into a dozen piece). The hri-uking of the glass startled J. 8. 1', so, that he made a movement to get up, the heel ot his No. 11 caught in tho round of his chair, it shot forward, he shot back ward, and thrro could be but one ro m;lt. In his idlorU to extricate himself, the 'o. 'It flew oil' and struck tho balloon-like appendage on the chin of J. Y. F., who sprang rmward w ith mich force as to strike tho ceiling, jamming his hatdowu over ins eyes. At tins interesting moment two young ladies, visitors, were ushered m, nnd as their eyes fell upon these two unfortunate youths one fainted dead away, and the other sat down ami began laugh- ing iu an idiotic manner. She had cone suddenly insaiicl J. w. l made ft) rush for the door, ns he thought, but be made a mistake and wont through the opeu window, fall ing a distance of several feet and landing in a rosebush. J. 8. L. made his exit safely, and two miser able looking devils it wis that met outsideJShook hands, embraced, and made an appointment lor the next Sunday. They then cut for their resiKjctive homes. Telsen, Tho Credulous Briton. St. James' Gazette, A remarkable instance of pres enco ot mind on the part of au no tress is reported from Cholseaville, In Texas. At A part ot the piece where she was tho only person on the stage she was informed from the wings that a fire had broken out behind tbe scenes. Instead of making a precipitate retreat, aud thereby causing a disastrous panic as nine persons out or teu in her position would bave done she quietly ordered the curtain to be lowered, and, stopping to tbe foot lights, she said to the uudieuuu: " Ladies dud gentleman A drama iu reallile us tumble as unexpected has just bceu enacted behind the scenes. Our manager, iu a tit of jealousy, has killed the leading lady and out his own throat after ward. This double tragedy pr' vents, of course, the continuance of the performance. Tbo bodiea have been removed to a ueighbor ing bouse, where they ore to be soeu." The publio whose curiosity was uaturnlly very much excited, cleared the tlirearro with the ut most promptitude, but without ao cidenf, no one feeling tbe sen so of danger which constitutes, in tact, the greatest peril on such occasions: but, instead or the two corpses w hich they expected to Dud, they only saw a thick comma ot smoke rising from the rear of the building they baa just vacated. ben man is dismissed from employment he always has a good deal to Bay against lua late ein ployers.

While scanning th columns of jour issue of the 23rd ult, uiy eye fell upon an article on the mot cou spicuous page of your paper over the non do plume of Tclsen, and iir order to remove any unfavorable im pression it may have made tiHu the reading public asto-the conduct of this musical trio upou that occas ion, I apply myself to the task of making it a reply, and ask of you the favor of giving it a place in your columns. As I was oue of the principal actors in this semuade of which my churn Telsen givessucu an extravagant description I do not wish to loave the many render of the Democrat Star under the im pression that this article certaii-l.v must have left them under. I there fore take pleasure in Informing them that the writer ef thia appareutly scumlousk'tter was none other than the violinist, J. W. F., w ho has no doubt now became eounuced that it requires some sweeter and more be setting thai in to quote the smiles and win the hearts of tho fair dams els of Ferula ud than the music of a iolin. In this reply I w ish to make a correction of some mis:ukes made y mv musical friend Telseu iu his description otthat memorable seren ade, lie certainly must have been seized with a fit of color blindness when his eye rested upon the fair vision which he beheld iu the parlor door, for it proved to bo only the housemaid he saw, w ho is a native American of African descent. And again, why should ho have been so iiesumptitous as to think mo uoiso he heard in tho yard was tho hasty retreat of a yonng lady wheu it was only the rapid hoof-stroke of a little, pet calf who had been aroused from his midnight repose by our approach, llaving cleared up these mistakes on the part of my unmr tunate companion, who like myself, was exercising his musical accom plishments in vain, 1 have a ord of advice to all misguided young men who like .ourselves tire apt to place too exalted un estimate upon their musical powers. 1 would, therefore, say to them, profit from our experience, ami remember tne reception met with by a yotithtul serenade, who, While ho sat 'neath the window sill 8m&!ug his darling's charms, Slip sat iu tlio parlor iliwk aud still, Iu another fellow's arms. To. u. a. No North, No South, Prairie Faraier. The loilowing clipped from the editorial columns ot the "Indus trial South," published at Kicli mond, Va., bits tho right ring. The sentiments breathed herein should be widely taught aud Incul cated iuto the breast of every true American citizen : Life is too short and the re sources aud opportunities of this country are too great for the Amer ican people to be divided among themselves. All Aortbcru nieu should 'be proud of every thing Southern that reflects credit upou tho country ; and all Southern uieu should eutertaiu a similar feeling towurd the North. It is a crying shame to this country nnd this peoplo that tho Southern States of this uuiou should ever be so mis represented through the Northern press as to iuduce fair minded meu, not only in the JMorth but in the foreign lauds, to look upou tbe people of the south almost ns race of barbarians; and it should be equally a shame to the civlliza tion of the ago it there should ever be found any Southern man of iu tolligeuce ready to revile the North ern people, its au unworthy race. The truth is, that people aud this people are the same people, with equal virtues and equal vices be tweeu tbeui iu proportion to their numbers. It is all provincial bigotry and unrrow-iuindeduess tor any American citizen or either sec tiou to assume thut tbe personal attributes of any man characterise him as a Northern Jmau because he was born in the North, or as a Southern man because he was bom in the South. Aud. to say nothing of high patriotic considerations' the great business interests of this country, both North aud South, de maun au elevation or Atncrieau sen timent to tho unqualified recogui tion of one country and oue people, everywhere within the boundaries of the United States, Prof. Bluchie once chalked on his notice board in college: "Tho Pro fessor is nimble to meet his classes to morrow," A waggish studunt removed'tlie"c,n leaving iflusscs." V lien the professor returned he no iced the new rendering. Equal to the ocoasiou, the professor quietly rubbed out the 'l,w and joined in tho hearty laughter of theasBes. It is estimated that it will cost the State of Georgia $50,000 to a, ; aemblo the legislature this spring i to couuttbo vote for governor. Assessment ot Real Estate. Natch Democrat. " We published yesterday rooming a very sensible and practical article from the Aberdeen Examiner and by tbe way it is wrely we find a srtiele iu ibis valued exchange which is not sensible and practi calin relation to the duty of every citizen of the State to give the as sessor a fair estimate of tbe value of his landed pro(arty. The ascessmeut of the proiertr of tbe State is the basis niton hlch its whole financial statue rests, and securing proper assessment of tbe values of proirty should be most carefully pro ided for by le gislative enactment. Our present system it will be admitted by all who give tbe subject tbe slightest attention, does not meet tbereqaire incuts ot a just and proper valua tion or property, particularly or landed piOx-rry. The office ot as sessor if not estimated at its pro per value, or its Importance to tbo community. The suiall comiwusa tion attached to the ofnee it is con sidered is suQlcietit to remnnerato the offlcT for the short time re quired for him to ride over tbe county and receive from each indi- idual a statement of his owu esti mate ot his proH.-rty for taxation. This is probably true, and if no more is required of him than this, it might be as well to abolish tbe office, nud requiro each citizeu to reiiort his assessment to the sheriff. under a penalty tor ueglect ot tho requirement. . But as the whole tax system of the State nud of tbe counties ia ba sed upon the assessment, it is of tho greatest importance that the best ability and integrity iu the several on n ties should be secured tor in forming the duties of this office. Tbo assessor should be selected for his good judgineut of values aud for his integrity and impartiality.
