O Picayune, and ie.*ident in Texan. ■ stile* as follows iu reference to this npe- I Ctes of cane: j Frir the la-t six months I have hardly , opened a pap* r. w hether devoted to agri j culture, politic*, religion, sportinsr affaii-* j or what not, without .teeing some notice , °f the Sorgho Sucre, or Chinese Sugar j eane; uhy have J nut a perfect right to j add my experience to the general block I ol information in relation to the culfiva -1 lion of this new grain, or plant, or what -1 ever it mav be termed ? To then. * ° ’ In October, 1855, I purchased in Paris I a small paper of Hie s* ed Ido not think [; there wa- more than two heaping table ■! spoonsful of it. or Ipii* at the outside , j I brought it with New Orleans, . | and on arriving enl * here to be plant- • . 1 ed.- When I readied thi* place, early in j Mjrv last, it was just peering above the i i ground, two rows of it in a ten acre field, i which had beey devoted to the main to millet, oats, and :t Idle Indian rorn. and , tour short rows in our garden—the lat i ler planted last. 1 j About (he eighth of July the two rows in the larger field had shot up, headed ! out and ripened, notwithstanding the' drought, and the heavy heads were cut* fur seed. The oats meanwhile had not i Cp* **f, the was hardly, above ground, while the lh(T.*M corn was parch- * ed and drying up for want of rain. Two I . or three mornings afterwaid. on looking' at ih • field from a hill close by I noticed ' . that the two rows of Sorgho Sucre bad . entirely disappeared, while rows of In , dian corn on either side was still stand ing. On c!o-e examination, I ascertained ■ that a lot ol hog*—hogs are apt to do such thing*—had broken into the field, and ( devoured the Chinese sugar raoe root ’! and branch: it was cut clean to the ground | l; by the porkers, not a sign or vestige was I left, while, as already stated, the stalk*! t of the common Indian corn on either side f { were left standing. I was thankful I had ! (saved the seed, and thought little more i j of it. ■I Some lew day* after this—perhaps ai , fortnight—the row s planted in the garden I J were examined, the head* of seed found j (to be ripe, and the greater portion cut; , j and brought to the house, leaving the tail i stalks still standing. On ciuting down i rtne of the latter, which must have been i ten feet high, I found il to be exceed-; ■j ingly heavy, and on ta-ting the cane, it | j seemed to me to be as tHI of saccharine ' juice as the ordinary sugar cane of Lou-; I isiana. At the same time I had two or j three imported French merino sheep in I my yard, in great want of green fodder, and on cutting the cane into small pieces ! I found that they devoured it with the greatest avidity. 'After thi* I fed them on il for some time, a single stalk fur nishing a good bait. I also gave some' of it to a favorite mare, she eating it even more greedily than the sheep. Some three weeks after the ripe heads i of seed weie cut 1 noticed that new heads had shot up from the same stalk; and these new heads blossomed, filled and ripened in September, and were cut and brought to the house. All thi* lime you mu*t recollect we were suffering from I the unprecedented drouth, and Indian' I corn and sweet potatoes, water melons,! 'j pumpkins, and the like, had died down j J to the very ground. • j I now became more interested in the 11 Sorgho Sucre than ever, and although 1 j still fed out daily to the mennoes and i mare, left a. portion of the stalks stand . ing. Soon new heads were seen shoe ing forth, and these in turn blossomed' ! and ripened as did the first. I kept no I ’! account of dates, but think this third crop J of seed from the same stalk, if so I mav} j call it, was gathered about the first of i October; it might have been during the j second week of that month. I planted ■ some of this last seed, byway of experi t meat. It came up rapidly, looked thrifty, grew until it was nearly knee high, aiid , was finally cut down by f*os in Novein-> her. A great number of shoe’s or suck ‘ er*, which had sprung up from the *talk 1 first planted, were cut down at the same • 4 time; the Sorgho Sucre can stand any kind of a drought, but the first sharp frost . kill* it to ih* ground. , " DEVOTED TO LITERATURE, NEWS.

TH!-: MARINERS COMPASS. • The invention of the compass is usu ally ascrib d to Flavio Gioai, of Amain, in Campania, about the year 1302; and the Kalians are strenuous in supporting this claim. Others affirm that Marcus Panins, a Veailian, having made a jour ney to China, brought back the inven tion with him in 1260. The French also lay claim to the honor of this invention, j from the circumstance that all nations distinguish the north point of the card by a Jleur de /is, and with equal reason, the English have laid claim to the same hon or. from Hie name compass, by which must nations have agreed to distinguish i*.

But the march of civilization is far from being terminated : the wonders we have witnessed may still be surpassed. The Europeans have not confined them selves to the shores of that Atlantic ocean which, immense as it appeared to Phce- 1 nician and tfie Greek navigators, is only an arm of (he sea, compared to that ocean w hich, under the names of the Indian, the Pacific and the Eastern, extends from | pole to pole.

joiced at the iall of my b*4 friend and, ! companion.** THE MARYLAND PENITENTIARY. During the last session of the Legisla ture application was made by the Board ttfdirector. of this establishment for an impropriation large enough to enable JbfethAo build a new and capacious build ing for confining their convicts in when not engaged at labor and it was proposed lot purchase a portion of the Jail lot be longingtc city for locating this new building on* iV the appropriation needed could he obtained. That appropriation Was un wisely deif|Rr?by the Legislater and since then, as we learn, the city authorities have dug the foundation for their new and commodious Jail so near the Penitemary wills, that all prospect of obtaining a location for the proposed aew Penitentiary building on the Jail lot, is forever lost. If, therefore, the present Penitentiary buildings cannot be *o re constructed as to find separate confine ment during the hours of relief from la bor for all tiie't convicts, the State will be compelled to purchase a new site for , a Penitentiary and erect new buildings out and out. Under such circumstances no place can be so suitable for the erec- , tion of a new Penitentiary as the neigh borhood of Annapolis. The Capital of the Slate is where the State Prison ought to be any how. \\ ith but three or lour exceptions, ev ry State lias erected her State Prison at her Capitol, and as An napolis has shown some signs of life and j improvement during the last few years, ! the State of \! xryland ought by all means 1 to stimulate our energies a little more by giving us the benefit of the erection of her Penitentiary in oar vicinity. An napolis is yet destined to becomf a city of some importance in our country, and the man is now grown who will live to see a part of I tie products of the coal beds of Allegany brought by rail rad to our wharves. It will require two or three double track rail roads to bring all the Allegany county coal to our sea roast, for which there will arise a # deuiand within the next quarter of a century, and one of these track must during dial time find its way to Annapolis. It may be said that stone and brick of the right sort cannot be obtained in An napolis or its neighborhood, but will have to be brought from Baltimore fggSi* ' L * nn * to be worthy ofcons TdeVat6r?, P aMf ifM J more than made up in the course of a few years by the low price of fuel in this neighborhood compared to w hat has to be paid in Baltimore. Annapolis deserves the fostering care of the State on account of its ancient renown among the places of note in the country, ami her legisla tors will not scruple about lending her the aid that she will receive from building and location ot a new Peniten tiary in our suburb* for the paltry con sidertion of a few’ dollars and cents.— Baltimore is no longer a fit location for the Penitentiary. The city improve -1 ment have surrounded it and v. e learn that it is daily overrun with city visitors who are provided with fiee tickets whilst nine out of every ten countrymen who wish to view the place have to pay their twenty-five cents each. This is not fair. The people of the whole Stale should he treated alik**. If one class are required to pay for th•r admis>ion ail ought to be. We areoppesed to privileged class j es any where. We repeal: if the present Penitentiary i buildings cannot be so re-arranged as to ! afford separate confinement on nights , and Sundays to all its inmates, let us ! have a new one built, and Annapolis ( city selected for it* location. Some of our people will be found enterprising enough to furnish it w ith ail its sup* lie* on terms just as advantageous as they 1 can he found in Bal imre, and Directors i and Managers can be found among Us j who will conduct its business quite as profitably to the Stale as it has been con ducted of late years beyond all question. We ho >e that our bretbern of the Press | in Ibe State will second our motion for ! erecting the new Penitentiary in Annap oli?, if the erection of a new one by the 1 State shall he shown to be a positive ne ! cessily — J\td. Republican The Tracedv at Louisville—Fur ther Particulars. —The telegraph ha* 1 already mentioned that Thomas Travers j had been arrested at Louisville, Ky., j charged with the murder of his wife, ! Mary Travers, on Thursday night last. The Courier states that Travers had been j intoxicated for several day*, and that the neighbor* heard him when he came ; home about 12 o’clock at night. It then proceeds: * | They heard no unusual noi*e in the room during the night, and in the morn ; ing their curiosity was first aroused by I the unusual stillness that prevailed in the I room. As the day wofe away suspicion was aroused, and about noon a hole was punched through the partition wall, and : the man and wife appeared to be a*leep lon the bed. They were called, aid he , mn replied, saying that bi* wife had | gone out to attend to some sewing.— . Thin was known to be false, and informa i lion was conveyed to the police oTthc suspicion that some foul play had been enacted, as the unfortunate woman Had previously told her neighbors that her husband had threatened her life. The door was burst open by the officers when a horrid sight was revesied The unfor tunate woman was found dead in her bed a mass of gore* The man, all cover ed with blood, had been lying quietly beside his murdered wife apparently sleeping until disturbed by the police.

Thf body was yet warm. ! though life was extinct. The bed and bed clothes were completely saturated with blood. On an examination it ap peared that she had received two stabs, one in the right breast, severing the lungs and the other on the left side, I glancing to the shoulder blade. The wound on the light side was mortal. Travers is an awning maker by trade and had been married but eight months to lus wife. She was a young woman, not over 24 years of age, and said to be very prepossessing in appearance.— I Eveiything in the room bore traces of i nearness and careful housekeeping, a* far as she concerned, but on the table near the bed was a bottle of liquor, half drained of its contents. This fact reveals at least one incentive to the hor rihle murder, as it would he hut charita ble to suppose the man partially insane from drink, or how could he commit such a deed?
