The excessive rains and cold of the past four months have so interfered with the usual current of farm operations that very little in the way of plowing land for spring and summer crops had been done up to the 20th February. The area in wheat and fall sown oats was cat short for want of suitable weath er for putting in those crops; and south of 32 degrees most of the oats sown there were killed by cold. A considerable quantity of cotton was left to be picked as late as the first of February. Georgia farmers are at least one month behind in ths work of preparation for planting. The occasion calls for the dis play of the most active energy and skill ful management to make up for lost time. It will not do to postpone the planting of corn and cotton one month. On the other hand it is not wise to plant without due preparation of at least the seed bed for the corn. Under such cir cumstances it is wine to prepare a part of the land and plant it at the usual time; then prepare otherland and plant, ar.d so on until all is done. By good management and by defeiring to a more convenient season everything that is not necessary to the success of the next crop, the lost time may be recovered and the corn and cotton planted in good season. In the southern parts of our ter ritory where the planting season is at hand, the soil is generally light and eas ily worked, and the land for the corn crop may be prepared by throwing five, or even three furrows together, and planting on the bed thus formed, break ing out the middles afterward. This is rather a risky business, however, *espe cially on soils that become hard in dry weather; and dry weather in April may be reasonably expected, after so much rain during tne winter. We have long advocated the propriety of planting corn on beds thrown up with the plow, rather than in the water fur row, or even on flushed surface. The opening furrow should be made in the centre of the bed and as deep as a broad and long shovel will make it at two trips, and the corn planted at the bottom of this farrow and covered lightly by a small double too'hed harrow without disturbing the edges of the furrow. Plan ted in this way the plants will be pro tected from frost by the walls of the fur row. We have seen fields planted in this way, where the plants were scarcely touched by frost and yet the general sur face of the ground was frozen. Potatoes fir draws or slips, should be bedded during the first warm spell. For this purpose the small potatoes are more convenient, and go much further, and the plants from them produce as good potatoes as from large tubers. Po tatoes are uot seeds except in the sense that they are used for propagating a new crop, and we may not expect to produce large potatoes by merely planting large roots. They are analogous to cuttings, and we may'as well expect to secure a large tree or bush, by propagating from a large cutting, as to get large potatoes because we have used large ones for planting. This’is true also of Irish po tatoes and other tubers. For the potato bed select a location on the south side of a fence or building so that the bed may get the full benefit of the warm sun, and at the same time be protected from cold winds. Cover the space marked out, with a thick coat of fine, well rotted stable manure and spade in deeply with a fork, mixing all tho r ougly and making all fine and smooth. Lay the potatoes as close as the thickeness of the finger apart, press them evenly into the mellow soil by means of a board, and cover with sandy loam or other light soil which is free from seeds of weeds. Tne covering should be about two inches thick. If too shallow, the plants will not throw out rootlets readily. Leached ashes is an ex cellent top dressing for a potato bed, and there is nothing better than soap suds from the wash-place for watering. CORK STALK SUGAR. At the recent meeting of the American Agricultural Association m New York, Dr. Peter Collier made some interesting remarks concerning the valuable process of extracting sugar from corn stalks and sorghum. He said: “During the past year there have been examinations made of 38 varities of sorg hum grown in, and received from 14 dif ferent States, and from 9 varieties of In dian corn. The results from analyses made, 1,318 in all, of the sorghums, show ed them to yield on an average 1,682 pounds of available sugar. From four of these varieties the sugar was extracted in quantity and at a rate of fully 2,000 pounds per acre. As to the corn stalks the results were most satisfactory, but the experiments were not so numberous as with soaghum. An average of 26 an alyses of the 9 varieties examined show edthem to contain in their juice an amount of sugar greater in quantity than the average of the best 30 specimens of 60 specimens of sugar-beets grown in different parts of the country. After a large crop of ripe corn had been gather ed the stalks yielded at the rate of over <XW pounds of sugar to the acre, and there appears no reason to doubt that this re sult could be obtained upon a large scale. In view of these results! feel justified in saying that there appears no reason to justify us in importing sugar which would - not justify our Importation of corn and wheat. In view also of the gradual but ■decided improvement of our Western lands, which a carefully compiled result of the acreage yield for the past 18 years establishes, it seems most wise that we -turn our earnest attention to this question of sugar production. You are also aware that the ash of corn is composed of mat ter derived from the earth, and unfor tunately consists of those two substances least abundant and most valuable, viz, phosphoric acid and potash. Indeed, so great is our corn crop—occupying 37 per cent.of our cultivated landsin the United States as it does—that at the prices we pay for these two substances the amount present in our corn crop aggregates the enormous sum of over $100,000,000, while the entire value of our com crop is about $500,000,000, so that when the time comes, as come it may, that to keep up the fertility of our Western lands we must return what we take from the ground, it will require, as will be seen, a sum equal to 20 per cent of the entire , value of a crop." • THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1881. BARLE Y-RICE -PEAS. A correspondent writing from Medi na, Tennessee, enquires as follows: I want to know the time and mode of planting or sowing barley and what kind of land is best suited to it. Also, the time it is harvested and if it is threshed like wheat, and the average yield. I want also the same information con cerning upland rice. If there are any whippoorwill peas in the market and the price per bushel. BARLEY. As most of our realers know, barley is grown to a very limited extent in the South. We do not remember to have seen more than five acres in a patch, (and that during the war) in Georgia. It i-t grown chiefly on rich grazing lots near the house and is rarely harvested for the seed. In the North and West and par ticularly in Canada, it is largely grown for malting purposes—tint is, making lager, and other kinds of beer. it is usually sown about the same time, era little latter than wheat; ar.d where wheat does better sown in spring (as is the case in the case in the North west) barley is also sown in spring—as early as the ground can be worked after the winter freezes are oyer. Barley delights in a rich soil, a me dium between heavy clay and light san dy, and should be seeded at the rate of from one and a half to two and a naif bushels per acre when grown for harvest ing as grain. But for grazing purposes, orgreensoiiing, the quantity per acre, should be not less than four bushels, on very rich land. When sown at the same as wheat, it ripens a little earlier, and should be promptly harvested in precisely the same way as other grain, and is thresh ed in the same manner. The yield per acre is somewhat great er than that of wheat. UPLAND RICE. Rice is now grown to a limited, but annually increasing extent on the up lands of Georgia. There is no special skill required in its cultivation, and fair crops may be made on high, dry lands. The seed are sown late in spring, or about the usual time of planting cotton and tender vegetables, in drills two or three feet apart The seed may be sown continuously and the plants chopped out so as to leave a bunch every twelve or eighteen inches, or dropped at first in bunches of ten to twelve grains. The cultivation is simple, the object being to keep clear of grass and weeds. The rice will be ripe in about four to five months and must then be cut with a sickle. After it is thoroughly dry it is hauled up and threshed like wheat. The most troublesome and inconvenient ope ration connected with rice culture, is cleaning the rough rice, or removing the husks. Several efforts have been made to perfect a small, cheap rice huller, for domestic use, but hitherto, without sub stantial success. Most of the rice grown in the lower parts of the States of Geor gia and South Carolina, goes to market ia Charleston and Savannah ia its rough state and is cleaned in the large steam rice mills in those cities. There are, however, several small custom mills in different parts of Georgia, that do satis factory work—cleaning at the rate of a hundred bushels or more a day. There is no reason why rice may not be successfully grown in Middle and West Tennessee. It grows well in White County, Georgia. The yield of upland rice in Georgia may be safely stated as twice that of corn on the same land and with same seasons, or from twenty to seventy bush els (rough rice) per acre. PEAS. The market in Atlanta is almost bare of seed ccw peas. Merchants are asking $1.50 per b'tshel for the whippoorwill peas. The last fall season was exceed ingly wet, and unfavorable for saving anything —especially cow peas. Seed will be very scarce and dear in Spring —in Georgia at least—unless Tennessee can supply the demand. HORSFORD'S ACID PHOSPHATE is prepared according to the directions of Prof. E. N. Horsford, of Cambridge, Mass., the well-known authority on nutritious bread and the cereals. Useful in Dyspepsia, Nervous Diseases, Mental and Physical Ex haustion, etc. “Home, sweet home” is much sweeter where Dobbins’ Electric Soap, (made by Cras gin & Co., Philadelphia, Pa.) is used labor, clothes and temper are preserved by its use. Trial shows its merit. Have your grocer get ATLANTA MAIIKETS. Atlanta, February 24,1881. COTTON. Very little cotton in market. Prices are merely nominal.
