Our Lands, < J
t T ' •■’** > * y The lauds of Florida are of three vari eties, hammock, high pins and fiat woods. Of these the host quality of soil is found in the hammock, especially for the propagation of vegetables and general farm products. Bat the ex penca of clearing these hammock lauds is enormous, and from all we have been able to learn, for farm or garden pur poses, we are driven to the conclnaion that they will never pay the interest on the cost of clearing—the clearing aver aging about one hundred dollars per acre. Next in value comes onr high pine lands, which are found in limited belts in various parts of the State.— These lands can be prepared for the plow at an expence of from twelve to to twenty dollars per acre, and with a little fertilizing are rendered equal to the best hammock lands for all citrns fruits, the orange, lemon, etc., and for most farm products. But by far the larger portion of the State, save that which for the most part lies under water, is flat woods. The surface is very nearly lev el, the soil is dark, almost black, and most new comers from the North could be easily misled into the belief that these are valuable. They do produce poor forage for cattle, and so for stock rais ing have some value; but are generally regarded by experienced men as worth less for all other purposes. The upper soil is a sort of sandy loam from one to two feet deep, then comes a hard-pan. In a dry season the moisture all forsakes this upper soil and leaves v it like a bed of ashes, while in a wet season, the wa ter stands on this hard-pan and so drowns out the vegetation. There is no question but that our hign pine sandy soil will endure either super-abundance of rain or drought bet ter than any other lands in the State. If the rain fall be to great, the loose sandy soil takes it up; if it be to limited, the sun calls back from the depths be low the needed moisture that has been , hoarded there. "We have seen weeeks of almost perpetual rain and no water left standing on the lands, we have seen five or six weeks with soarsely a drop of rain, and yet the soil was moist with in two or three inches of the surface. There is no question but that, all things considered, these high pine are our best lands for all purposes save stock raising; and Southern men, meu who are ac quainted with the soils and prodnots of the South, in coming to this State seek these lands.— Our Paper. —lf not convenient for you to visit the city; sendvonr orders for boots and shoes to us and If goods are not perfectly Satis— tactory they may be returned at our ex!
