Quantity nf teed and covering.- -Vtavn us. nig too little seed, nnd n recklessness In covering it, tunny corn fields are deficient one hnll'of what ought to giow upon them. Wo drop six to eight kernels in a hill, nnd take special earn to have it covered inly with fine mould. If dung, pods, slicks or (tones are placed upon the hill, it partially or wholly prevents the plants coming. If buried too deep, the seed may rot before the soil is warm enough to induce germin ation; if ton shallow, it may lack moisture. "These uru littlo matters, though iliey have n great influence upon the profils of I he :rop. The extra expense that would be incurred to do these things perfect, might hu four quarts of seed nnd one day's labor to tho acre and tho advantages would of ten be tho doubling of the crop. Two inches is a sufficient covering, if the hill is! trodden upon, or it should bo, by tho plant-1 cr, to compress tho enrtii nnd preserve its moisture. After culture n this tho plough should not bo used if the corn harrow nnd cultiva tor can be had, nnd if used, should not be eufl'orcd to penetrate t lie soil more than two or three inches. I ho plough tears the roots, turns up and wastes the manure, nnd increases tho injuries of drought. The -main object is to extirpate weeds, and to ' keep the surface mellow and open, that the licnt, air and moisture may exert the better their kind influences upon tliu vegetable matter in the soil, in converting it iiilo nu triment for the crop. The oflener the cul. tivator is made to pass between tho rows, therefore, tlio betlcr; though ordinarily but two dressings arc given to the crop. At tho first dressing with the hand hoc, the plants are reduced, to four, or three, in a hill, the surface is broken among the plants, the weeds carefully extirpated, and a littlo fresh mould gathered lo the hill. At tho second dressing, n like process is observed taking enro that tho earthing shall not ex ceed one inch and a half, that tho hill be broad anil flat, and that the earth for this purpose be not taken from one place, but gathered from I lie mrfnee between the rows, where it has been loos-cncd by the cultivator. ITarveding The crop should bo cut up at the ground as soon as the grutn is glazed, or as soon ns it will do to top, nnd, without being laid on the ground, set. immediately in stooks. There are Tour substantial rea sons for adopting lift mode of harvesting. It secures the crop from tho destructive ef fects of frost ; it quadruples the value of ilie lodder ; it clears I lie ground early for a fall crop, and it caves labor in harvesting; and, we may add a fifth, it makes a hotter cropofprain, under auv contingency, than when it is topped in the" old way. We are confident of'tlns Inst fact. The grain con tinues to profit by the clabnrated"sap in the cut stocks, while it d v not profit by tho unolaboratcd sap, below the car, in the top ped corn. Husking anil cribbing The ears should bo gathered from the .tool's, nnd the laiter stacked, ns soon as I hey have bceoir.o sulli cienlly dry nnd cured. o- unnecessary expo sure to the weather is prejudicial to both 'lie grain nnd the forngn.

Tin-corn may be picked off nnd carried to lh bam, and it thou'd be husked within 24 or 36 hours thereafter, uitd before t he heat is perceptible in the pile, and tho stocks bound nnd placed in Ktnall stacks, so as to expose all the butts, which have become rnturaicd with tnni.-ture by standing on tho ground, to the drying influence of the sun and wind? and the Blacks topped, or covered with straw, so as to shed rain. After a I'm night or so, they may bo carried, in a dry stale, to the barn. When picking the com from the stalls, the best seed ears shou'd bo select nil, nnd im mediately bruided. and hung in nu airy loft. The com should be expo-sod. after being husked, upon the barn door, to the drying influence of the winds, nnd it mav reunite to'bo turned over and stirred, till tho cub is thoroughly dried. If this is wet, when cabbed, fermentation may ensue, or a frost may follow, sufiieient to congeal the moist ure in tho cob. either of which will impair tho quality of tho grain, nnd de.-troy ils germinating principle. In sorting the corn, wo make three par eels, viz. fc.'.'und grain for tho crib, pig corn, embracing thu ripened but defective ears. nnd tho truly soft and smutty oars, which nro not husked, b'il thrown by for unmedi nto use.

Wo also separate the grainless lips nnd stems of hat which we place in crib--, for tho like ca nons, and to preserve tho grain in a sound unjriii coiiumnn. The forage from the corn crop, when sa ved in tho manner wo have directed, is on excellent fodder for neat cattle, if cut for feeding cut. Wo have used it in this way, exclusive of hay, for two years, and find it nnswors all the purposes o'hay.

From the fncts charged in tho indictment, it appears that in April, Ifi3G, Itnthbun was in New-York, (as is supposed' for the purpose of raising funds.) In n letter written by him to David R.

Ofthe position of South Carolina to tho new administration, he obcrvcd. 'The new Administration had themselvcH decided it they came in ns a Jackson Ad ministration they gloriod in bearing thu name and wearing tho livery; it was but a fresh batch of politicians struck out by Now York machinery like tenpenny nails! But they nsked us to wait nnd try ihemhad wc not tried them for the Inst eight ypars! Should wo try them again? God forbid? Lot the't'n buy nnd sell tho-so who were in the shnrnblcs Smith Carolina had no price". Their aim wns to prevent union hero, to keep a wake sectional jealousies, to shower g'fts and honors lo make golden prom'ues. to all, to tickle the North with one side of the hIicII and the South wilh the other, while the little animal at tho centre runs off with the oyster." The Charleston Mercury gives some ac count of Mr. Calhoun's Speech on the same" occasion. "Mr. Calhoun alluded lo abolition ho consido-ed it the mightiest evil that had ev. er threalcnod our Government, nnd Iho only caiiic now in operation sufficiently powerful to effect a dissolution of the Un. inn lie IHieved the great lnuly ofthe tliern people to be sound on this question t but wc must remember thai the Northern Sia'es wero themselves divided upon great principle-', full of parties, and agitated with sharp nnd absorbing controversies all thcif local interests lav between us, and cut off or chilled t heir sympathy with the South ; the abolitioni?ts were strong, active, uncom. promising their support was an object vf sufficient importance to enforce the silence in many instances to buy the voices of those who wished us wellwo could not depend upon the North wc could not de pend upon the Government wo could on ly depend noon ourselves. Ho left it to the people of the South to determine the time ond mode of action nn this momentous subject, but it was his opinion that lo be successful, it must be prompt, energetic and univor.-al. Ho spoke of Texas, and at that namo was interrupted with long and loud cheer ing, and his concluding words on that topic, pronounced with deep emotion, that 'Texaa must be annexed to the Union !' wero ans wered with a universal buri-t of npplausc thai showed how glowing the t-ympa. thy of the penple of Sooth Carolina wilh ilie heroes of San Jacinto. He uotlned out clearly the vital importance to the S uth of Iho annexation, and after n few other remark-', concluded, amid great cheering-. with a suitable (oast." The Mobile papers give an instance of a most daring robbery, perpetrated within a few miles of that city, on a Mr. Woodyard. lie was waylaid, dragged from his horse. blind-folded und carried into n swamp and tied and then robbed of nearly 3,000. The plunderers even 'divided tho money near by him, within his heuring, and quar reled nbout their shares. They left him bound and blind -folded nnd said within Ills' hearing that thoy would go to tho road nnd cover up their tracks and some blood which had been spilled. While they wore gone, he got one arm loose from tho cord and then released the oilier and got the ban dago Irom his eyes, nnd striking away deeper into the swamp effected his escape. Rag Munw. A bill bus passed tho Senate ol Ohio, creating twenty seven new banks, with nn nggregnio capital of four millions five hundred thousand dollars. It was introduced by. a Van liurcn member, and passed by n T'oii liurcn Senate, and yet these aro the individual who denounce banks as monopolies and their notes Ob pa per rags. Just so with tho Van Burcn Houso of Delegates of Virgina. Thoy havo enacted a bill which more than doub les tho banking capital of the State. A Patent cannot bo obtainod in Eng land at a less expense limn $1800 or $1050, Wo shouid havo few patented inventions in Yankco laud, if ingenuity was taxed such an enormous price for protection. A motion is now before the House of Com mons, that $1000 shall bo paid for cw- pHent, and lliat sum to cover all r -j penses. tiiL
