From the Florida (St. Augustine) Herald.
The annoxed observations upon the culture
of the cane, have been made by a French gen
tleman of considerable planting experience in
the West Indies and in Florida, and they em
brace some interesting particularsi»if ho can be
charged with any error, we think it is in under
rating the advantages and overrating the disad
vantages attending the cultivation of sugar in
Florida: for instance ho estimates the common
produce of an acre to be twelve hundred
pounds, whereas at Tomoka, we are credibly
informed, that four hogsheads are expected.
Wo jhink it probable that the real produce
will be between these estimates, but the fact
will soon be ascertained. Another advantage,
which seems to bo overlooked, is that which
we have over the West India planter, in the
duty on the importation of this article; and the
comparative cheapness and facility with which
we can erect our buildings and apparatus. Wo
hope soon to present a detailed statement of
the actual expenses of these to tho public. A-
nother advantage, which our observer com
plaints of as a nuisance, is this, that the press
ed cane or bagadro may be applied as manure.
The disadvantages of which ho speaks as
resulting from storms in the fall and from frost
in tho winter, are certainly of very partial and
rare oc6irrcnce, more especially to the south
of St. Augustine; and the inexperience of
thoso who have hitherto been engaged in the
culture, although it has rotarded the interest
of the parties concerned,' yet it is an evil which
is gradually correcting itself, and must; give
way to the enterprise of our planters. Our
intelligent observer, we trust, will excuse these
remarks, and we thank him for tho opportunity,
he has afforded us of laying his observation's
before tho public on a culture of such great
and increasing interest.
CULTURE of SUGAR CANE and its PRODUCT.
An nere of good land cultivated in cane
with the requisite care, ought to yield
commonly 12(J01bs of Sugar at $8
It yields also in addition a barrel and one-
fifth of Syrup
A negro, besides attending to provisions
and forage, ought to cultivate three a-
cres of cane, at $114,
Forty negroes, according to the same pro.
portion, ought to cultivate one hundred
and twenty acres, which, at the rate of
$342 per head, would be $13,680 00
From this production, we must deduct a
fourth for expenses and wear and tear 3,429 00
might be nevertheless advantageous, if.there
were sufficient chaff to manure tho half of the
culture. ‘ .
Sugar cane may bo planted in January, Feb
ruary or even in March, it vegetates and rises
from tho ground at the' beginning of the
Spring, languishes in May aud June during the
dry season, begins to be vigorous in July, and
in the space of 3 months only, favoured by
rain and heat it rises thickens and at the end of
October is in ctmdition to be cut and .ground
with advantage. T^ie precaution Is necessary
of pulling down the cane and placing it in co
vert rows before the severe frosts, This cul
ture offers certainly great advantages, but
which are not without their inconveniences.
’ The first of these ago storms or gales of
wind in September and part of October, for at
that epoch the cane receives their assaults be
fore having acquired its entire maturity, and
thus thrown down it deteriorates promptly by
tho vegetation which it has not entirely lost, by
the humidity of tho soil on which it lies, and
by the confusion and deficiency of air winch
makes them stagnate, and in this condition they
can give only a middling quantity of bitter
Tho second inconvenience is the influence
of winter which although very temperate, is
nevertheless intermixed with days, and above
all by night very cold, accompanied with frost
which makes it necessary to make the sugar in
the time of somewhat over four months, in the
only time when it is possible to take advantage
of the cane, and the most vigorous of tho ye;ir,
and the least favourable to the labour of cul
ture, as well from the shortness of tho day as
from intemperance of the season.
Tho third inconvenience is the defective
supply of manu'-o which this country affords,
and finally the inexperience of those which are
superintending a culture which presents many
obstacles from the necessity of the operations
and tho novelty of tho labour.

I assume, in these calculations, the houses
to bo already established; for the formation of
a property of this kind leads to great expense.
The workmanship, however, If well attended
to, docs not require renovation in mass, but of
ten nevertheless may be estimated at about
thirty thousand. "*
Connected with this calculation, it would be
necessary to have good land, and a resident o
verseor who has been used to the cultivation
and is-a good economist; for such an overseer
would commonly produce moro with twenty-
five negroes nnd with ordinary land than ano
ther with fifty vigorous negroes and the best
soil: This difference, which is observed eve
ry where between the result of good and bad
management, is much more sensible and consi
derable. here than elsewhere; in the nature of
the culture, the nature of the negroes (who can'
not be lost sight’of for a moment Without tho
work being stopped, retarded or.badly done)
and finally in the imperious disposition of ^the
soil and climate.
■ Allowance being, made for different obsta
cles,'which are encountered in the course of
the grinding seasons, which commence at the
end of October, and ought to last till the end
of February; otic may count upon more than
forty-five days of grinding season, in which the
quantity of three thousand pounds in twenty-
four hours, which-is wlmt can bo realized, with
the'proportional molasses,. &c. 250,000lbs of
It must not bo forgotten, that'besides the
land necessary for cultivating the sugar, there
must be added that which is nocossary for pro
visions nnd -forage; for, at tho 'time of the
grinding season, tho animals must bo*fcd chief
ly at the hand; and one may calculate here as
nothing, the assistance from the pressed cane,
for it decomposes mid putrifics in a little time,
owing to tho watery particles which it still con-
•ins, and winch the cold and frequently, humid >Kinley.
climate hinders from disengaging itself freely;
and which, on the contrary, is only an em
barrassment to the planter who: is obliged to
make it in heaps at a distanco from his build
ings. One must also add to tho work already
montioUcd, tho necessary firewood, winch can
not be fixed at less than three hundred cords
for a grinding soason of one hundred thousand
pounds of sugar. This wood must bc-placcd
cut and piled’ near the furnace; to be conveni
ently employed for fuel. ,
.During tho six months from the bcgitlning
of October to tho end of March, the sugar
planter is commanded by his work which pres
ses on him with force and rapidity; so much
that the crop of provision and forage, the dif
ferent operations which the grinding season
imperiously prescribes, the preparation -of the
land which occasions tho different cultures at
convenient seasons. -The other six months he
commands for other work, such as repairing in
closures, digging and repairing drains and weed
ing, which demand great attention.
The nature of the soil and climate does not
admit of cultivating the cane after it is 3 years
old and to pass from this to a further ratoon of
which the product itself is very iudiiTvr.ut, it
