Til K TOBACCO BXPEttZMKNT. Precautions t? bo Taken to Make lt Suc cessful.' There ie 110 plant which has a wider climat ic rango than tobacco. On this Continent, it grows wherever planted from Canada to Patagonia, but with variations of types duo to soil, climate and exposure' In tho United States we have almost endless varieties of the .ame diatiuct plant. Ohio tobacco resembles Maryland, but the ono is easily distinguished from tho other, and both havo their chief salo in Eu rope. Tho dark tobaccos of Virginia aro different from those of Kentucky, and tho tobacco of Tennessee differs from both. Even in tho yellow tobac co of Virginia and North Carolina dis tinct varieties with distinct names exist, and in western North Carolina tho tobacco varies lu different couties, although originally grown from tho samo seed. It is impossible, therefore, to predict what the South Carolina tobacco of thc future will bc, and in what material respects variation from thc parent type will be produced in thc different localities of tho State. Liko all plant other life on our globe, tobacco, oven in its assisted struggle for existence, will, in its evolution to thc most at tainable porfoct spooies, accommodate itself to tho influence of thc soil upon which it feeds and the air which it feeds, and it can only survive as a per manent typo of thc plant family to Which it belongs, subject to theso con tions. Thus tho tobacco of tho Wins ton distriot of North Carolina is rich in flavor and substanco and of an cv^gO and somewhat reddish color, wr.ilo that of Western North Carolina is thinner and a brighter yellow, and lacks tho excellcnco of flavor of thc former. Perhaps tho tobacco of thc Piedmont of South Carolina will moro nearly rcscmblo tho former than thc latter. I trust sincerely that your commis sioners of agriculture will placo at thc disposal of tho farmers carefully pre pared instructions as to thc sorts of to bacco best adapted to tl e several divis ions of soil which characterise the Stato from tho sea to the mountains. It were a lo.s.s of precious timo and ol mouoy for your people to embark in Mimi experiments with seed and con ditions unsuitable to, their several lacal itics. Given suitable soil and climate the acquisitio;. of thc highest attaina ble typo of tobacco may bc greatly hastend and assisted at thc start by a judicious selection of seed grown on similar soil elsewhere. With the same care after this in tho selection of seed nom your homo grown plant as was exercised by your island planters in t?ho progressive creation of sea island cdt ton, a typo of tobacco will bo devel oped better suited to thc soils and cli mates of South Carolina than one grown from continuous importation Sf geed from Virginia and elsewhere. Tobacco now-a-days, if wc except thc sun-cured wrappers of Virginia north of tho ?James, nnt\ tljo cigar loaf of other States,, must be cured in barns, boated by smoke-tight flues. This in volves a largo expenditure of fuel, the supply of which is a consideration of primo economy and importance. ' JJL is an error generally received that che soil of any part of South Carolina resemble that of the celebrated Vuelta Abijo of Cuba, of thc Valley of the Connecticut, or of Lancaster county. Pa. Tho Cuban, tho Connecticut ano the Pennsylvania soils arc similar, the formation being triassic, and of winch formation I can discover no trace any where in South Carolina. Doubtless the terracos of your river lauris will ?roduco good cigar tobaeco from Iavana seed. Certainly, if it can be ascertained that these soils resemble the cigar leaf soils of Gadsden county, florida, which in the past produced cigar leaf almost in excellence to that of Havana. The census of 1880 gives the profit per acre from tobacco grown on Florida soil as thc largest in the United States. There is far less differ ence between the olimatcs of South botweon the climates of South Caro lina and of Florida than there is be tween Connecticut and Cuba. As in everything else, so is it in agriculture dangerous to generalize .from . ???61atcd results. Individual farmers in North Carolina growing yellow tobacco have realized $200 and moro per acre, yet thc average price for which the crop of this Stato sold in the season just closed was not more than thirteen and a half cents a pound. At these figures an averngo of fivo hundred pounds to the aero for the whole State to be about $22.50 net. It is not to discourage thc farmers of South Carolina that f give these de ductions from facts. It is better for them to start their experimental crops Uf tobacco Oll the basis Of mod?rai ely ostimated profits than upon greatly ex aggerated expectations derived from exceptional and rare instrnces of cnor mous returns. It is given only to a few very skilled and painstaking farm ars to achieve such remunerative re sulta as are quoted by newspaper writers as if they were thc general rule. The great majority of those who till the soil with us in tho South are but indifferent cultivators, or else their efforts are crippled by inadequate cap ital. Ilowover, if thc men who take hold of tobacco in South Carolina can, with the altered conditions of labor, do for this plant what theiu forefathers did for rico and sea island cotton, then as suredly will South Carolina become a great tobacco State, but they have everything to learn, and thc first steps towards success must bo taken in a spirit of patient investigation. Science cannot altogether supply tho placo of experience. Il can, nt best, only Indi cate tho short cuts by which this richly dowered daughter of time and experi ment is to bo wooed and won. Tho botanical chemist, as a rule, lins left tobacco severely alone. Ile has anal yzed the ashes of the dead leaf, but thora bas been no vivisection of thc live plant, no analysis of its snp, which Ja tho blood whoreby it grows. A natural born alchemist at a rough hewn log barn discoverod in a moment of inspiration tho temperature (record ed by a twenty-five cont thermometer) at which the golden yellow of trans formation was to be caught and fixed in the leaf aa an enduring color. The whole cultivation and curing of to bacco is thus more or loss a tradition. In it. as in much else, wc to-day only stand upon the threshold of future pos sibilities. On the SM of this month tho West ern North Carolina Agricultural Fair will open at Asheville. Unusually large premiums will be offered for ex hibits of tohaaco. and un admirable opportunity will be afforded to any of your> farmers interested in tho culti vation of tobaeco to see how our far tamed.goldoti leaf is prepared for mar it is ?old on our vrare Witbln a cl few miles nrc hundreds of tob?ceo barns, lu somo of which, possibly, curing may still bo going on at that timo. In conclusion, those formers in tho Piedmont ol* South Carolina who this your for tho first timo tried grow ing tobacco, must not bo disheartened if their leaf docs not como out uni formcrly yellow. This difficulty has been common, moro or les?, to the whole bright tobacco belt. Even in this mountain region, whero every condition for making a crop of exce? lcut color prevailed, the samo persist ent reddening exists to somo extent this season. J. ll. HAMILTON. Asheville, N. C., October 10, 1885. ein? Straw Mnunre. (From th? Avgusta Chronicle.) In tho Chronicle of September 25 tho following appears: "Mr. P. J. Bcrckmans says that pine straw renders manure almost value less. Southern farmers should ko AV this and bo wisc accordingly." At thc August meeting of the Rich mond County Agricultural Society, tho subject for discussion being tho "Management of Cattle," tho question of matorial for bedding purposes was broached, and ia my comments upon tho very able paper of Mr. Staples, who was the essayist for that month, 1 stated "that pi?o straw as bedding material was undesirable, as it ren dered tho nianaro almost valueless, aad, if used ia large proportions, it often proved aa injury to tho land." Your reporter gave tho correct words, but by publishing them has placed you under tho necessity of re ceiving tlie explanation of thc reasons upon which I ba6c my assertions, and if you seo proper to publish these, 1 will thus be enabled to reply to several inquiries which have lately been made upon thc subject. In an essay upon "Manures," read lu 18?e before the Richmond County Agricultural Society, when referring to animal manures. I said: "Although this term, strictly speak ing, means only such as arc produced cither from thc excrements of animal! or from their flesh, blood or bones, ii is usually applied to manures pro doced from thc excrements of animal and thc admixture of straw, leaves, oi other vegetable matter used as litter this being commonly termed stabil manure. The quality depends mud upon thc food given to cattle, as wei as upon thc nature of thc litter used Thc riclicr tho food, thc richer will b thc manure produced. Wheat and oa straw, oak leaves, hay, grass, cori stalks, and similar vegetable matter should be freely used for litter. Avoit pine straw, pine sawdust, or pin shavings, all being injurious to bun from the resinous principios tho eon tain." This assertion gave risc at the tim to considerable discussion and a rcpl to many arguments against it wa published in the Chronicle. I canoe better answer thc queries lately rt coi ved than to refer to my reply. "Pine straw asa mulch is good. A a disintegrating medium for very st i clay soils, impermeable to air, it ca be beneficial, but only for that put pose. The. leaf of the pine is con posed of silicate (a hard mineral sui stance) vegetable libre and rosin. Rot silicate and vegetable base arc insoli ble, hence not available as plant foot Thc ashes of pine straw, submitted l analysis, give less potash ns a resu than thc ashes of any other vcgetabl the proportion being 0.45 in 1,0< parts. Wheat straw, after the grain formed, gives 3.90 of potash in 1,0( parto, and before thc heads are formt yields 4.70 parts of potash; corn stall contain 17.6 parts; cow peas from 20 to 25.0 in 1,000 parts; oak leaves 1.5: willow leaves 2..'35; elm and map leaves 3.90 parts of potash in 1,01 parts. Potato vines arc also rich potash. Potash being one of thc ma constituents of tho plants wc usual grow as agricultural crops, lt is c\ dent that a soil deficient in it cann be productive and pine straw cann givo what is required, because it ca not undergo a transformation win would make it soluble and thus bc a sorbed by plants. "Referring to tho analysis of so of different countries, it is shown tli resinous matter is contained in soi stcrilo soils, and in such rust attac wheat, rye or oats. "This is so well known in portie in Europe where pine woods abou and where the inhabitants arc conced to bc thc best agriculturists in t world, and as careful of produci and saving manures as arc thc ('hine; that no tiller of the soil however slit of raw material to bed bis cow or j) will allow any pine straw to bc us for that purpose (this article is us for fuel only by the poorer classcf they well know that rust would bc I rcstiltif used in thc manures. One our tenants covered a part of a fit willi pine straw, and for several yoi afterwords could not raise cither win or clover on it, notwithstanding bea manuring afterwards. "Five years ago I planted Ir potatoes and gave thom a heavy mill ing of pine straw, thc ground bel well manured previous to planting potatoes. The straw was plowed during winter and tho ground plain in corn the following spring, and tl portion previously mulched prod tu stalks two feet smaller than the otl portion of tho field which had, he ever, never been manured before. 'I second year the field was sown in ot and thc difference in tho yield be less than half upon the mulched p tion. "Thc samo result has been noti in the vegetable garden, whero sovr classes of vegetables, especially pt could not be grown successfully wi indng mnnurc made with pino strai when manure made with either strnw or oak leaves was used tho yi was always bottor. "I could say more, but deem tl remarks sufficient to sustain my o| ion, which is thc result of perso cxporienco, although it may cont with that of others." Since this was wrillon many yo havo passed and nothing has occur to change my opinion ns regards lack of value of pine straw for man material. Pine straw which has b subjected to the drippings of cattle doubtless shown good results in so soils, and in some especially moist s sons, and upon certain crops, but t is duo solely to thc fertilizing prop ties which were taken from tho sta in combination with the straw i despite the presence of tho latter tho soil, The writer causod tho lu lng from tho city, for several years succession, of from three to four h dred heavy loads of livery sta mannie and had to discon"nno practice, owing to the barren rest obtained. Tho average material u for bedding hoing pino straw and p shavings, which, in many instanc proved a decided injury to the soil, yield produced thereon-especially grain crops. Having paid dearly for my oxperienco, by an outlay of an j nverago of $300 a year, tor at least ten years, besides thc cost of hauling heavy loads a distanco of live miles from" thc livery stables to thc tarin, 1 believe tliat 1 am entitled to thc opin ion expressed at thc heading of this j article; and if a careful comparison is made with using inanuro made with pino straw upon a given portion of a Held, and with manure made with wheat or oat straw, corn stalks, oak leaves or pea V?IICB, using equal pro? portions ot each, tho result will speak for itself.

Dr. Curry, the newly ap pointed Minister to spain, spent a dav last week at the State Department, where he consulted with thc Secretary and Assistant Secretary of State, with his predecessor, ami with Mr. Wil liams, United States Consul-Gciierul to Cuba. To a reporter of the Associated Press, Dr. Curry said ho expected to leavo for his post on tho 51 h Novem ber. "It is said, sir," remarked the reporter, "that you were once in com mand ut Andersonvillc, and wcro in part responsible for tho cruelly prac ticed toward the Federal prisoners." "I never was in Andcrsouvillc in my life," replied Dr. Curry, "and 1 never had command of Federal prisoners in my life, except such as I captured my self and those I turned over at once. 1 cannot imagine how such a story got its start. I shall be glad if you will make my denial broad und emphatic. "Thc critics of your appointment," continued thc reporter, "question tho propriety ol sending Baptist clergy near a court t?o strongly Catholic." "Thc criticism is unjust," was the reply, "lt would be a strange thing if tho strongest denomination in thc country-you know wc aro the strong est-were to be disqualified for diplo I malic oilices on religious grounds. A luau's religion, 1 holtl, is a thing bc ' tween his God and himself, and one with which the Government has noth ing to do. I am a little surprised at thc criticism too. Thc hardest strug gle I have hud when In politics was as a candidate for thc Legislature in Ala bama during the "Know-Nothing" ex citement.

My county was a pivotal one, anti my competitor thc ablest mau on thal side of the Slate. My success was very gratify ing." "Were you an anti-Know-Nothing!" "Yes; I was a champion, I can't say of tho Catholics, but of thc principle of Americanism, which is embodied in thc Constitution, of equal rights and privileges for all." "Of course you anticipate no obj? tion from tho Spaniards to your recep tion?" 'Certainly not. Thc Spanish Gov ernment knows my mission hus nothing to do with religion." "I am very mucli gratified by two things, I may say three things," con tinued Dr. Curry. "When I was ob jected to on the ground Of being un known, so strcog a Republican paper as tho Providence Journal vouched for me and said'l was nil right.

AUGUSTA, GA., October 22.-Tbie 1 beautiful olly is so near to Edgeflold luul is so intimately connccteil with the county that no day passes that several Edgeliold inen ure not seen on thc umbrageous streets. It is easy, therefore, to obtain the gossip con cerning tho Edgeflold affairs which rarely linds its .way i ito print. The all-absorbing topic in Edgctlcld at this time is tho lynching of CuIbt'Oath, and it must he admitted that the state ments which uro made in Augusta upon tho subject dringe materially thc aspect of thc deplorable affair. It is nsscrted that Mr. Culbreath treated his wile with thc utmost bru tality after her lather's death, and that his conduct was so otl'ensivc to thc people that it is surprising that he was not lynched nt an earlier day. Among his other offences, lt is said that in a drunken fit ho lushed his wife severe ly with a buggy whip, and when re monstrated with by her mother lashed that lady in tho same way. As a con sequence of his behavior, a separation took place. Mr. Culbreath, however, continued a stu veillunce over his wife's actions, and without any reason what ever was furiously jealous. As is known, Mr. I lammond was assassinated in tho yard of Mrs. Culbroath's house where he had gone at the request of her son to remain tor the night. One of my informants says that ho knows it to'bc a faot that Mr. Culbreath caused [lammond to be assassinated, and that he was as much thc assassin as though he hud actually pulled the trigger. This, at all evenjs, was be lieved in the county and was thc imm? diate cause ol'the lynching, Tho peo ple of the county felt that such con duct should bo tolorated no longer, and they unwisely look thc law into their own hands. An Edgeflold man whom I talked willi said, with great emphasis, that he held that lynching was never justifiable, but if ever it was to bc justifiable it was so in Culbroath's case. There are now in Edgeflold (ail more than thirty persons who aro nccuscd of participation in tho lynching. Thc accommodations arc altogolhor Insuf ficient, und tho prisoners arc threaten ed with disease by reason of thc condi tion of tho buildings in which they are confined. They did not apply for bail, but have BU Ile red severely al ready, and their Bullering is not in their confinement alone. The nccuscd form tho hulk of the adult male popu lation of two or more townships in Edgeflold county. They arc taken from their plant?t ions at a busy season of thc year, and in their absence it is impracticable to control tho colored laborers, who arc niching thc colton from thc fields right and left, ll is asserted in all seriousness that, many ramilles will l?o deprived of bread and meat by the arrest of the accused, all of whom, it is said, arc ready to give bail to anv amount that may he requir ed. 1 give theve statements in order that the publie may know what is said by those who are acquainted with the lynchers, and who lcd that thc act was so nearly justifiable (hat there is no reason to keep thc accused in jail, and who maintain, further, that thc facts to he developed before the grand jury or in open Court will satisfy the pul lie mind that no great wrong has been done. When it. ls urged thal thc Courts should have boon resorted to, it is shown that the original olfcUCOS of Culbreath could not have been made the subject cf a judicial investigation without a public scandal. As regards tho assassination of liam? mond there is a feeling, I am sorry to suv, that whatever- the evidence, Cul breath would md have been convicted, and that lynch law wat the only law that would meet his case. The accused arc said lo he highly respectable, in dustrious and well-behaved citizens, who would never, save as a last resort, be gulley of un act ol'violence of any kind. All ?his is given to thc readers of thc News a nd Courier, without comment, and in order that they may know what I is thc opinion held by those who claim to he familiar with thc facts of thc case.
