Judge Jewett ran for governor in 1861

one hundred thousand dollars and a
salary of forty thousand dollars a year

Sugar From Corn Stalks.
A correspondent of the New York
fe:ald, writing from Washington,
makes some startling statements re
garding the orogress made at the agri
cultuiral bureau in extracting well
graniulated sugar of a high grade from
sorgiui and from millet and corn
stalks. Professor Collyer Is the
chemist inl charge of the experiments,
froi whoi, and from Professor Le
Duo, the following facts are obtained:
Previous to 1877 all methods to
manufacture sugar successfully from
beets or sorghum had fa!ed, and it
was believed that the only sugar-bear
ing products were the real ribbon-cane
and the sugar maple. Of the latter
only twenty-eight million pouds are
anially produced, a mere drop in
tihe bucket, and the forests arc being
rapidly killed cut. The suigar pro
duelig belt on the Gulf yielded two
hundred and fifty million pounds,
while the imports were seventeen hun
dred nillion poimnds of sugar, besides
quantities of molasses, melado and
different formis of isierose, being an
increase of three hundred million
Volinds over that of the preceding
year. It is estimated that 4lie an
nutial conbumptionl of sugar in this
Country is forty pounds pcr capita,
against sixty pounds per copita in
Enigland, and munch more inl Fe,ancc,
showing that sugar is not yet cheap Or
abundant enough in this country. At
sixty pounds each, our pleople 'would
consume 'thr'ee thousand million
p)ounds, costinig, at seven cenits a
pound1(, two hundred anid ten million
dollars. Yet sorghum sugars last year
brought readily ten cents a 1)ound(.
By means of limprovedl methods,
Professor Collyer has priodunced the
following per centage of' sugar: From
Louisiana cane sixteen per cent.,
Amber sorghum seventeen per cent.,
Chinese sorghum fourteen per cent.,
Liberian caiie fit'teen per cent., lIon
duras cane fifteen per cent., and firom
Pearl millet eleven per cent. One
acre of Ilondur'as cane has yielded
t wo tonis of sugar', and from others
one tonl each. But the most remarka
ble results were from white field cor'n,
known as the "horse tooth,'' of which
an acre pr'oduccd sixty-nine bushels
- of cor'n, while the stalks, when gr'ound,
yielded half a ton of sugar of a good
variety. The ground stalks made good
food for cattle.
The abov'e facts fbrnish the founda
tion for air castles of the most mag
nificent description. Taking the value
of this corn crop for a year at four'
hundred mililoi dollar's, and the posB-c
Bible yield of sugar at half as much 1
nior'e, the magnificent bonanza of six i
hulndr'ed illioin dollars a year Is pos
The11 machinery for making sugar oft
* sorghum or cor'n is said to be of a sim
l)le and inexpensive nature, and til
though Commiissoier LeDuci's drecam
may never be realized to the extent of
corn-stalks, It 18 never'theless certain j
that a new imp)etus wvill be given to
the cultivation of the better varieties
When the Fir'st Napoleon, when' I
Franice, under the blockade of the i
English navy, was cut off' fr'om her i

* ~more to France thani all is victoi'ies

we estimate the value of these newv ap.

of sugar fronm sorghum and corn

E OHAt"BSTON CONNECTION.
Sone PerUnent temarks on tho Extiting
BrQ.uk at Columbia-Why Charleston is
Interested In Keeping a Close ConnectIon
wit the Up-Country.
(From the Yorkville Enquirer.)
A reporter for the Charleston Vews
oad CoUHer recently interviewed Mr.
Peck, stiperintendent of the South
Carolina Railroad, on the subject of
making close connection at - Columbia
with the C. C. & A. Road, thereby
placing Charleston IIn closer comnuni
cation with the up-count.ry than at
present. The superintendent inform
ed the reporter that. there Is no present
inteition of chnging the schedule on
the South Carolina road so as to make
the connection desired. lie said that
"the South Carollina road has very lit
tie travel for the Charlotte road, and
the present.slcehule suits tihe people
very wll; that the Inaking of the con
nection at Columbia would not be to
the advantage of any body except, per
hags, the News Iad Coarier."
For the information of the Charles
ton people. it is deemed not amiss to
say. that jlst such at policy as that inqi
cated by Mr. Stperintendont Peck 'has
had inuch to do with diverting the
trade of the Piedmont section from
that city-the inetropols of tite State,
in whose prosperity all our people
would rejoice. But It is idle to talk
about the people of the upper counties
having business relations with Charles
ton, when Atlanta, lichmond and
Baltimore can be reached in a shorter
time. Mr. Superintendent Peck, wheth
er he means to do so or not, pursues a
course the effect of which is to drive
trffic and travel from the commercial
city of the State. le forgets that
wlille his road could be an important
feeder to that city, emptying into her
lap the products of a rich and fertile
section, it is after all but local in its
signiftealce, and cannot control the
movements of longer and equally in
portant lines. The railroad system of
the State, or of the South, will hardly
stop to consult the convenience of the
South Carolina Road, ntor wNill it."e se
riously atIected by the movements of
that rad; and in this respect Mr. Su1
perihite4ent Peck might derive a les
son figm Mahonet. When that wor
thy, after calling the mountain to him,
discovered that it was iiot likelv to
obey le sumnions, w*ith a courtesy
rarely' witnessed these days the accom
mnodathig prophet gracefully and un
conditionally wvalked up to the moun
tain. 'Jnf the circumstances, Alahomet
could have done nothing neater.
Butour own people, as well as those
of Charleston, may congratulate them
selves upon the fact that within a few
months at farthest, a new outlet will
be opened from this section to the City
by the Sea-a line that will be entire
lv independent of the South Carolina
ltail ;oad. When this line Is complet
ed, the inanagement of the South Caro
lina Railroad mnv discover that much
of the n'eigilt it lias heretofore handled
will go over the new line, 'and the ne
Dessity forclose connection at Column
bla may then be even less than at pres
Dnt. The new line to which we refer
will be over the North-Eastein Reilroad
to Cheraw; thence by the Cheraw and
Wadesboro Railroad to Wadesboro,
where connect.ion will be made with
lte Carolina Central, which line con
iects with the net-work of roads con
etrat.ing at Charlotte.
The distance between Cheraw (the
iorthern terminus of the North-East
arni:Raikond) and Wadesboro is twen
~y-six miles. The Cheraw anad Wades
ioro road,.has been graded the entire
ength,pnd.the ttrainas are runnaing on
t twointy miles fromt Cherawv, leaving
nly six miles to finisha, for which the
aecessary iron has been ordered and
vill be.put down at once after Its ar
'ival. Theon the people of the up
~ountry can go to Charlestona within a
easonmablo time, though to do sc) they
nay haave to travel around their own
state anad tharough another-all because
heo various lines txtentdinig from the
North to the South do taot arrange
heir time-tables to suit the conven
once of the South Carolina Railroad.
