Of the South generally I know very fit tic from personal observa tion, lint you will find throughout the Sou1 h, wherever I have been, a general tendency toward warm er weather than you ebtain in the North. worth Carolina, as you ate no doubt aware, is generally 1110 tin tainous in its geographical depart men 1, and 011 Ihe map which I pe rused as it student ihe State was of a dark blue color. Greatly lo my surprise, however, on anivi.ig here 1 found Nonh Carolina to be red. The soil, such as it is, has the same roseate hue of the adult bi ink of commerce, and continues in that condition constantly. The farms generally are not large in size, and are divided into three classes, viz: the Mansard .m, the Gothic farm and thedor er farm. A good Gothic farm near town will bring from $23 to 100 per acre, including large wall pockets to hold fanning imple ments at night, so that they will not drop out of Hie Gothic farm into i.he dormer farm below. ,'." " '". t y .lhal ...Imp talu farms are steep, slate that water readily wben applied to them. Tobacco is the great staple here. i mosliy ol the smoking varie , 1 hough on lli: bottom lauds a ety hanly dwutf plug tobacco grows easily, and during a long season planters may readily grow the large tropical plug tobacco. It is a rare sight to pass along the country road and see the navy plug tobacco of North Carolina rising io its full height In the glo rious autumn sun.wlii le through iti waving boughs the nut b'own or seal brown plug tobacco of trade, with its glittering little tin tag near tho stem, may be rtadily distinguished. Fine cut tobacco also trows bete to a great height. Every thing that goes to make life worth living may be found in the wildest prolusion. Whisky is so plen'y Im r, ilia? Inteinperanee is not a mark of distinction. Coin whisky, whether made be neath the broad glare ol the noon day fan or by 1 lie moonlight pro cess, is within the reach of all. It is so plenty that I do not care for it, hik) I know that .111 Iowa man could put in a winter here that would be memorable throughout bis life. You ask about the matter of health, and I am pleased to stale 'hat there has not been a circular printed or sent out from here do ling the past leu years that did nut state in the most emphatic terms th.it lhi is a very beaMiy country.

Mr. Allen Cupeutrr and Mr. Man.trty may be said lo b the pioueera in thi branch of fanning and both these fenilenieii have for a num ber of years found their hay crops lo be profitable. The whole of the hay used in this or any other section of Ihe South should be of home produc tion. There is no other part of the Uuited States in which there is so great a variety ol indigenous grasses us io Ihe South, and its cultivation and preparation lor maiket is so easy iu comparison with that of the everlasting cotton crop, that it is really a matter of wonder lhat Urge quantities of the now useless lands in this vj citiilr have not loug ago b-en utilized for the production ol hay. .A few acres of corutttdd, if plowed up and fertilized, will in the spring, without seeding, put up a luxuriant crop of crab grass which makes as fine bay as any grass in the world, and the farmer off these few acres wilb his mow er aud hay press would realize far more than he would from Ihe same number of acies in cotton. Either crab grass or Bermuda will furnish a perennial grass crop that will requiie no seediug, and only a single breaking up iu the fall or very early in the spring. Besides these there are many other grasses, such as Lcspedeza, Johnson grass, the various millets and others that wou.d repay rich ly the very slight cultivation they may require. Indeed bsy' might be made profitably without any cultivation. Nothing but the mowei and the bay press, and the few hands required to manage them, would be necessary on most of the plantations in this county to insure to the careinl plautsr a competency from the bay which grows spontaneously on every farm. A correspondent of that excel lent paper, the "Southern Ltvi Slock J nirnal," suggests a con vrnMon of the hay makers, and st c': and grass raisers ol the State in May next, either at .he State capital or at Slaikville, Sn a convention would be of irn hnneflt in ihe wav of direct r -. ..a C'f-toB of lhn farmeK-. or t . the ..5't-st metliodiLinakf : lli'twa iurwU tries both popular and . profitable, aud we hope (6 see it acted on by our larmers generally, Natchez Democrat.
