Editor: An agricultural address was delivered at Chapel Hill on the 23d Octo ber, by John Norwood, Esq., which was list ened to with deep attention by all who heard it Mr. Norwood has been a success ful practical farmer for more than forty years in this county, and knows whereof be speaks when he talks upon the subject of farming. He spoke about three hours, and all who heard him could but regret that his practi cal views could not be brought borne to every farmer in North Carolina. A few ot liis positions will be interesting to your readers. If the. land lying west of the Durham and Rttiiboro' loads, and within eight miles of Chapel Hill, should be carefully examined, it would be found that two thirds of the cleared lands are so worn out and exhausted that they will not yield crops sufficient to pay for the labor of cultivation, and that tbe remaining third will be in the same con dition in the course of a dozen years, unless the old system of farming is changed. This is but a specimen of the deplorable agricul tural condition of North Carolina. Our boasted wealth of climate and scenery, ot mineral resources, and water power, and natural fertility of soil, is threatened with ruin by our present system of agriculture. The system must be changed or ruin is in evitable. Tour correspondent, in this connection, takes the occasion to say that if the founders and patrons of the University had establish ed an Agricultural College in the University at its organization in which the principles and practice of agriculture had been thor oughly taught it would have been of incal culable benefit to the people of the State. Instead of gullies and galls and worn out old fields, into which the best lands in the State have been converted within a com paratively short feriod, we would now have a rich mould capable of sustaining ten times our present population. There has been no wiser or more humane legislation by the National Congress than the appropriation of land-scrip to the States for the foundation ol Agricultural Colleges, and tbe stvcral Stares Tiauii ni ImijI mnn danrnil than ,( Vuitl.fi.l execution of the law making this appropria tion. The Legislature of North Carolina has committed this trust to the Board of Trustees of the University. The result will doubtless prove that it is in safe bands. The acceptance, however, necessarily involves a change in the course of study which has heretofore been pursued in the University. The dead languages must yield to tbe natural sciences. Physics mast take the place of Metaphysics. The laws of nature must take precedence of the laws ot language. This reorganization of the University will doubt less be made at the meeting of the Board in November next, and is looked forward to with an interest somewhat commensurate with the reform in agriculture which it may inaugurate. But let us return from this digression to the remedy proposed bW the speaker. The farmer has only to look over his fence upon tbe thrifty forest to learn from nature the remedy for the ruin which threatens him. The leaves which fall annually return to the soil what the growth of the tree takes from it, and the mots and leaves together prevent the land (ram being washed away. The farmer on the contrary plows his lands shallow up and down hill, so that every heavy rain may wash off part of the soil ; he plants in corn and peas the first year. At the end of summer he gathers his com and fodder and pulls up his pea vines, and then turns his cattle upon his field that they may trample it into mortar through the winter, and eat off everything that might be returned to the land as a compensation for what had been taken off in the crops. The same thing is done every year until the land is worn out and washed away. It is then turned out and another "new ground" is cleared. This is a faithful picture of farm ing in North Carolina. There are, howev er, honorable exceptions to the rule. The remedy is in horizontal plowing, hill side ditches and deep plowing. It' the soil is loosened a loot deep and plowed horizon tally, it will hold all the rain which will fall upon it, and deal it out to growing plants through the longest of our dry sea sons. I will mention here that on the day of the meeting I beard a gentleman say that he gathered this tail six barrels ot corn to the acre from a field of the same quality of land as that from which some of his neigh bors gathered less than one barrel to the acre ; and that his larger yield was due mainly to deep plowing. A crop of corn should be followed by small gram, and the land should rest every third year. If a pea crop is planted with the com, and the vines plowed under before the wheat is sown, and a crop of clover is sown with the wheat and turned under tbe third year, the land will improve rapidly. The farmer, however, should make manure. Every year, by DroTjcr mannin-menL he can make six large four horse loads for every head of cat- ue and horses which be keeps. Hence nan who keeps two bead of horses and a dozen head ot cattle, ought to make every year eighty or ninety four horse wagon loads of manure. If this is applied to eight or ten acres near his lots, and this field is properly cultivated, it will yield more than foe times the same land would without the "amire.a.nd with less labor. re "Uieai wnicu came uj u a nura.

ORANGE. FEEDING HOGS. , A practical farmer, of Chester county, Penn, gives in the Oermantown Telegraph, his method of feeding hogs, and the results of his observations. We extract the follow ing from his article : I would name fifty per cent, instead of twenty-five as the difference between letting the pigs feed themselves and feeding them in a proper manner between letting them grind their own corn and having it clone for them. For feeding purposes I prefer the breed known here as the "Chester county White," and to them my experience is-mainly eon fined. I usually have my stock pigs drop ped some time in the 10th month (October) and wean them at four weeks old, after which I feed on milk and corn meal, as much as tbey will eat up clean, feed at dif ferent times throughout the day, say every three or four hours. My experience convinces me that it is best to feed all my young stock " little at a time, but that little often," and that with this manner of feeding they will show a much greater rate . of improvement than when they consume the same amount of food in three feeds per clay. During cold weather I mix the meal with warm or hot water and in just such quanti ties as will form one feed ; as soon as done feeding I mix that for the next feed, which when the next feeding time comes, will be founi to be a thick mush, and in order to furnish enough moisture, will have to be thinned with warm water. Of course this mode of feeding only ap plies to pigs when they are small, and dur ing cold weather ; as soon as the weather is warm enough, the feed can be mixed with cold water, and in large quantities; but I am not sure whether it would not pay to continue the; hot water all the time. During the Summer, and when fattening in the Fall, I use two barrels, or half bogs heads, and in this way I am able to keep the slops mixed for three or four days before I use it and allow it to become a little sour ; if the weather is cold, a little may be left in tbe hogshead to assist in the souring of the next batch. I am well satisfied that four bushels of ground (orn fed In this way. will make as much pork as ten bushels of nnsbelled ears, fed by throwing it. on the ground, or too often on the manure in the pen. Fed in the above manner 1 think one bushel of meal (one bushel of corn will make one bushel of meal after the miller's toll is taken out) should make six to seven pounds of pork, which at present prices would cost from ten to eleven cents per pound. I have fed pigs which I thought made ten pounds of pork to the bushel of corn ; but I have also fed those which did not make four, so that I would feel safe in naming from five to six pounds as the average weight of pork which should be made from one bushel of shelled corn. I have found that if I allow my pigs the range of a field of good wheat stubble or second crop of clover in addition to their usual feed of meal, they will fatten rapidly ; in fact I have known pigs to be kept in a field of a second crop of clover, with free access to water, for four months and im prove in condition all the time. Many pigs are very fond of clover hay ; I once fed a brood sow for two months upon hay and common house slop and one quart of corn per day, and I think she improved on it. All pigs are very fond of cut clover hay when stirred among their slop, and will thrive on it By all means ring the pigs and give them the range ot a good pasture, and the more clover the better. Western Sural Journal. New Process in Wheat Cultuee. Tbe result of an experiment made during the past season, by R. A. Gilpin, ac his farm in Westown, on tbe wide planting and cul tivation of wheat appears to be quite re markable. In giving an account of the ex periment, Mr. Gilpin says : Tbe ground measured an acre within a fraction ; it was not selected on account of any inferiority, but was much the same as tbe rest of the field, and was manured and ploughed just the same. Tbe seed was the red Mediterranean, and not very good, being taken from tbe wheat grown on the place the previous season, which was injured by the weevil. It was drilled in at the rate of J of a bushel to tbe acre, on the 25th of September, at the same time as the rest of the field. The peculiarity oi tne treatment was that every other pipe of the drill was stopped, so that the rows of wheat were twenty inches apart, or aouoie me usual dis tance. In the Sprinz, when the ground has become sufficiently dry to work, a small gar den hoe barrow was nut-between tbe rows. working the ground to tbe depth of three inches: this was done only once. The effect of this working was very appar ent; tbe wheat took a rapid start and outgrew the rest of the field. As the season advanced it grew tall and stronsr. and no amount of wind or ram had any effect to lay it down; when the heads formed their greater length were very appa rent It was backward in ripening, and the rest of the field was cut and hauled in a week before this was ready. Now for the result: the experimental wheat yielded twentv-three bushsls of wheat to one acre, and the rest yielded only nine bushels to the acre; the quality of each was the same. Whether from defect in the seed, or the wet season, or the late planting, the whole of my wheat was injured both by rust ana weevil, and the experimental part' did not escape, it was effected iust as the rest was. This experiment must not be regarded as entirely satisfactory ; me season was exucpuuuai, me seed used was inferior, and tbe yield ol the experimental part of the field was not abso lutely great, but only by comparison with he rest ot tne crop, wnicn was a poor one from the effects of rust and the weevil ; but the result is under any circumstances suffi ciently reasonable to attract the attention of farmers and induce a further trial.

Clover is the cheapest and best manure that can be had. Nothing pays better than a field of clover plowed under. It enriches the soil Quicker than barn-yard manure, and puts it in better condition. To plow it down well, if it stands thick and high, each morning a roller should be drawn over as much as can be plowed in a. day, and a heavy chain should be fastened to the point of the plow-beam to drag it into tbe furrow. In this way it can be completely covered. Clover contains all the elements needed to enrich the soill for all kinds of grain, and in larger quantities. Experimental Farm Journal. ' Cabbotsmb Horses.

It has been supposed by many that the origin of the society of Odd Fellows or rather the organization ot that association was of comparative modern data. . They will be somewhat surprised, however, saya the Cincinnati Ttmet, to learn that its origin dates at tar back as Nero, and was establish ed by the Roman soldiers in the year 55. At that time they were called "Fellow Citizens." The present name was given them by Titus Ljesar, twenty-tour years afterward; and they were so called from the singular char acter of tbeir meetings, and from their know ing each other by means of mysterious signs and language. ' At tbe same time he pre sented them with a dispensation, engraved en a plate of gold, bearing different emblems of morality. In the fifth century the order was established in the bpamsh dominions, and in Portugal in the sixth century. It did not reach France and England until tbe eleventh century. It was then established in the latter country by John de Nille, who, asssisted by five knights from France, form ed a Grand Lodge in London. This ancient fraternity has now its lodges in every quar ter of the globe, and by its usefulness and benevolent character, command the respect and countenance ot all who are acquainted with its nature and purpose. Those upon whose information reliance may be placed, gives credit to Baltimore for fret introducing Odd Fallowshlp into the United States, and to Grand Sire Thomas Wilde, still living among us, belongs the honor. The Great Proselyte. Charles Loyson, known as Father Hya- cintbe, was born at Orleans, in 1827, and finished his studies in the Academy of Pau, of which his father was Rector, and at an early age became famous for his remarkable poetical writings. In 1845, he entered the theological, seminary of Saint Snlpice, at Pans, and, after four years' study, was or dained Priest He was next appointed Pro fessor of Philosophy at the great seminary at Nantes. He next performed the duties of Priest in the parish of the Church of Saint Sulpice, and after ten years' trial be came convinced that his true vocation was preaching. He then spent two years in the convent of the Carmelites at Lyons, and subsequently was admitted to that order and made his first appearance as a pulpit or ator bv preaching with great success during a sniritual retreat held at the Lyceum of Lyons. He next preached the advent course of sermons at Bordeaux in 1863, and the Lent sermons at Perigneux in 1864, and in the summer of that year proceeded to Paris and preached first at tbe Church of the Madeleine and next tbe Advent course sermons at tbe Church of Notre Dame. During the last five years the sermons of Father Hyacmtne nave been one oi tne great attractions of Paris, and his preaching bas attracted large ana intelligent auui- ences. Talented Inebriates. A correspondent of the Boston Journal writes: "In the Binghampton Inebriate Asylum are eminent lawyers from New En gland, whom I have heard plead with Web ster and Choate, men of wealth and stand ins: eloaueut temperance orators, whose names and address I have seen within a year in the Journal men who have been and aru still officially connected with the city gov ernment of New York ; professional men of high standing; eloquent and distinguished ministers of the gospel; sons of eminent merchants of New York and other leading cities; some of tbe most talented artists of the land ; organists who readily commanded 5000 a vear id the city : with bankers, law yers, clerks, and eminent men ; nearly all of them under thirty years of age. Many of them are fine performen. They have organ ized a choir, conduct in superb style the worship which is held daily, and the wor ship ot tbe sabbath, give concerts, Dave en tertainments, run a small theatre once ' week, have negro minstrels, and the whole week is occupied in a round of interesting amusements.

The Fashions the Woman's Parliament, The birds that have been singing their songs through the woods and meadows, and along the sea shore, have winged their flight city-ward, and are displaying their beauty and brilliant plumage , along our gayest thoroughfare. And not content with the rural delights that have been to them a con tinual feast during the summer months, they rob the woods of their treasures, and smile in the face of the ruin they have wrought It would seem as though all tbe birds , in Christendom must be sacrificed to supply the demand for feathers ; and the - feather brained part of the population is in excess oi any mental census that bas been taken lor the past seven years.

The head of the bird droops gracefully to one side, and is very pretty for those who like anything so dread fully natural. For my own part I thiak these mutilated songsters of the woods and fields are enough to bespeak the compassion snd energetic action of the Humane Soci ety ; and if our worthy Bergh is not author ized to stop tbe sacrilege, tbe empty nests will fill the air with wails for the departed. Such bigh-handed robbing I don't aDDrove of, and I felt so guilty I couldn't look a bird in tbe face last summer, while they seemed to sing so piteously : " Don't kill the birds, the pretty birds 1" I shouldn't be surprised if they presented their bUlt at the next Legislature ; and it's my on-nest o-pin-lon that they ought not to be laid on the table.

Virginia Vabley. For tbe Standard.' Fire In Plymouth. Mb. Editor: I give you particulars in re gard to the fire which occurred in this place on the morning of the 20th instant, at j 8 o'clock P. M. It was first discovered in the building occupied by Lee, a colored man, recently from Edenton, doing a gen eral business. It was a large new store owned by the Messrs. Latham & Brother. Lee was respected by all right minded peo ple, having conducted himself with decorum tbe short time he was in business here. It thence rapidly extended to the Hotel previ ously occupied by Wm. Rankin, northeast of it, lately purchased by E. J. Johnson, thence west to the store of Norman & La tham's, and N. D. Norman's warehouse. Mr. Cohen's and Mr. Atkinson's two new stores, occupied by Dishields, Tatum & Co., on tbe corner, where it stopped in this direc tion, the wind blowing heavily at north-' east It then communicated across the street in a westerly direction to Wm. Ran kin's grocery, burning several small build ings, and reaching the new store and ware bouse of N. D. Norman's and several small houses adjoining. . From Mr. . Rankin's it extended south up to main street, destroying the grocery of J. W. Davis, barber shop of Sam Wiggins, colored, market and grocery of Isaiah Wynn & Son, Jackson & Bro'g livery stable, and two stores owued by Mrs. Benjamin Spruill. The loss falls heavy on all, but none more so than Mr. Rankin, who lost all tbe means no had to support a large and helpless family. Tbe failure of the crops in this county fo. three successive seasons, with the heavy loss upon our citizens, is. well calculated to dis hearten and dampen tbeir energies. It will also be felt outside the limits of the corpo ration. Many of our most extensive farmers were dependent, to a great extent, for assist ance rrom those large merchants who were able and willing to wait from one crop to the oth er for necessary supplies. . This sou rce of assistance is now cut off, and with the scanty means on band, owing to the failure of previous crops, as above stated, it must produce great inconvenience if not a failure in cultivating tbe usual ouantitv of noil. Plunder was the order of the day. Most of our white citizens were absent the mer chants North, lawyers and many of our pco- piu atuuiuiag on me superior cjourt oi Martin, and jurors to the Federal Court in Edenton whose assistance was so much needed. Loss estimated at $100,000. Some insurance the amount at present not known nothing sufficient to cover one fourth the 10S8. ... ii -i j.i It is confidently believed by Lee to be the act of an incendiary.

I,,, Planets. ; , (, , The latest and ; most fantastic suggestion in tbe way oi teiegraptiy is that ot a r rench enthusiast, who, like all inventors and orig inators of grand ideas, is now being heartily laughed at in Europe for his pains, ui The old plan with discoverers, was to rack, or bum them; the new plan is to cover them with ridicule. Perhaps in this case such punish ment is not ill deserved Our enthusiast's proposal is not to . fly to the moon, but to communicate with the planets. He i, wishes to mount a gigantic mirror, capable of be ing readily moved, and to give flashing sig nals to Jupiter and Venus, ills theory is, that if these are repeated regularly at giv en intervals and in equal number of times, the inhabitants of tbe planets will come to discern them, to understand that they mean something, and to return them.'' Should they do this, a code ot signals could mani festly, without much difficulty, be devised, The proposer of this curious scheme, points out tnat even now bright spots are occa' sionally seen on some of tbe 1 planets;' and suggests that they- may possibly be similar signals from the inhabitants of those orbs to eacn other ana to us. ine laea-is said to have been discussed before, and to have been abandoned; but, however practicable or absurd, . it has been thought worthy' of serious attention by the French Academy .of Sciences.. ,, .;,, ' " ' ' Woman's Rights.
