Who is He? A correspondent of the;

Friday, says :
"The Prof, was accompanied in his

well as a photographer. "
Who this distinguished artist is, our
communitv is at a loss to know.
R. It. Mketino. The Commiwioners of
the Seaboard & Raleigh Rail Road meet
here to-morrow. It is to be hoped that
some practical good may eventuate from
this meeting. If the road can he built it
will give us a direct line from Salisbury to
Williamston and, if the Western Exten
sion is ever completed, we will have al
most a straight line of communication from
Western, N. C, to the seashore through
the middle of the State.
Stop It. Has the attention of our au
thorities ever been directed to the nuisance
that is constantly practiced by watering
loose droves of mules at the public pumps ?
The surroundings of the pump on Church
street are kept in a miserable condition, to
a great extent by this means, to say noth
ing of the inconvenience to pedestrians, es
pecially ladies. Mules should be carried to
the river or creek to lie watered.
PLANTING OATS.
(The following was read before Panola
Grange at its meeting last Thursday week.
On motion a copy was sent to the Enquih-er-Soctheener
and the State Agricultural
Journal with a request to publish. )
To the Panola Grange, No. 22 :
It is a fact worthy of note that mere
opinions, in practice, or practical discus
sions have ceased to he of value, except to
the exteut they are suggestive, and the re
marks here submitted are intended to be
confined to the limits assigned to them by
the facts given. Many- persons concede,
as a fact, that most crops seem to have a
specialty either as to the time or manner of
planting, or both, as may be observed by
crops planted at or near the same time on
the same or similar soil. There is often
seen a great difference in crops planted
within two or three days of the same ; this
may or may not, result from a change in
planting from the moisture of the soil
which may control the depth at which the
seed are planted, as well as the altered
condition of the soil.
I here submit the proposition that there
is a heavy loss annually to the State from
the rude and defective maner in which
the oats and wheat crop are planted, es
pecially from covering the seed too deep ;
that from 1-5 to 1-4 of the crop is thus lost
in the Eastern part of the State.
The facts given to support this seeming
ly bold proposition are taken from the re
port of the Agricultural College of Penn
sylvania, for the year 1870, pages 38 and
41.
The oats were planted on the 28th of
April ; when the seed were planted 3 inch
es and under most of the seed came up in
9 days ; whilst of the seed planted 6 inches
only 1-8 came up, and only 1-12 of them
matured ; yet every seed planted under 1
inch came up ; under 1 inch is considered
a light covering or shallow planting. I
have heard opinions expressed years ago,
even before the war, that the difference in
harrowing and plowing in oats was equal to
from i to J the value from using guano, but
the facts are not at hand, if in existence,
to substantiate the foregoing suggestion.
I have never heard any farmer deny that
harrowing in small grain pays, yet in this
section the custom still prevails of plowing
them In, a strong evidence to the extent to
which farmers follow custom Yet they
incessantly complain of the want of pro
gress in farming. There are improvements
in this county which have been in practice
from 1 5 to 20 years which have not extended
over the county ; as for instance the barrel
distributer for cotton seed for manur
ing, which is constructed by putting an
axle through both heads of a barrel with
shafts attached to the axle, with a sufficient
number of holes in the center of the bulge
of the barrel to scatter the requisite quan
tity of eed.
At present I shall say nothing of the
different kinds of oats, nor of the advan
tage from the harrow in the improved con
dition for the reaper, and for the mower in
the after crop of grass, for since the intro
duction of the mower much valuable hay is
saved after harvesting the oats.

From investigating the foregoing table it
clearly appeals as far as a single series of
exjienments conducted only through one
season can prove, that other things being
equal, up to a certain deptlt, wheat and
oats produce in proportion to the depths
they are planted ; the seed planted shallow
est producing most. Those planted 1 inch
and under ytehHnj? fees:, then by gradually
Increasing in depth they diminish in pro
duction until between 6 or 7 inches they
cease to produce.
In 9 days at 3 inches only 1-12 of the
seed came up, whilst in the same time at
i inch and under ever seed came up and
at 1 inch 11-12 came up; a good many
seed came up after the 9th day, but at what
time they came up does not apiear ; but
the table clearly shows that the seed or
stalks did not tiller in proportion to their
thinness, but generally in proiwrtion to the
depth planted ; and "generally the weight
was controlled by the same fact ; and in
further proof the plants which came up
planted below i inches died.
The loss from planting : inches deep is
over half, or a .'! 15-24 to 8 H-21, which is
certainly a heavy loss from the manner of
planting ; whence we may j.ay from the
indications of the table there is a heavy loss
by using the plow as compared to the har
row. It would seem that the loss from iWn I
covering would range from 1 -5 to over half
the crop.
Is not the above a startling propoMtion ?
Is it not a duty w e owe as w ell to our Grange
as to the public to settle this question ? !
If the statement are untrue they ought to ;
le proved so and rejected if they aw? true,
then we ought to disseminate tlit-m as wide-,
ly as possible for the benefit of the public.
I would add that my own eterience '
points in the same direction, but not so
strongly as the alove facts indicate. From
tlie same report it appears that in wheat
harrowing in as compared to plowing in is
as 108 to 87, or where the plow yields 87
bushels, the harrow ields 108, a licit gain
of 21 bushels.
To lie continued. John L. Kkidoeks.
Tarboro', Feb. 5th, 1874.
For the Enquirer-Southerner.
YVhjt.ikers, N. C, Feb. 12, 1874.
Mr. Editor: The fine rock mill-dam'
across Fishing Creek belonging to Dr. Jno. i
T. Bellamy, three miles aliove this place,
was washed down two nights since, involv
ing a heavy loss. There has lieen for fifty
or more years a good grist mill there, and
the Dr. has recently nearly completed a
large rock building for a factory, on the
opposite side of the stream.
The Grange at this place has gone to
work in good earnest, and is bringing about
many reforms for the welfare of the com
munity. In their meeting yesterday steps
were taken looking to the navigation of
Fishing Creek by light Steamboats having
in tow flats, or barges if necessary and
possible, (smile not incredulous) from
Washington, Greenville or Tarboro, as far
up as Bellamy's Mill, or farther if need be.
We think the plan feasible and eminently
praiseworthy, and earnestly invoke the aid
and sympathy of all lovers of cheap trans
portation. The country through which
Fishing Creek passes is very rich, and as
prosperous as any section of the South, and
the people would exert themselves to sup
port an enterprise of this character, know
ing, as they do, it would lead to their ad
vantage in so many ways. In any event
every effort will be made to bring about its
accomplishment, although the near future
may not see it. You may hear from us
again on the same subject.
The preparation for the coming crop is
more tardy than usual, wages range from
$4 to $7 for women and $10 to $13 for
men.
The health of the community is gener
ally good.
Yours,
Senex.
