From the Mobile Commercial Register.
Mr. Editor— Some years ago, say four or
five, 1 read in the Washington City, nnd some
other public Gazettes, an account of tho singu
larly valuable properties of a Grass, found in
the .South West, nnd principally through the
prcxinccs of South America, called by the Span
iards the ll Guma Grass." I think some timo
ago a communication appeared in your Regis
ter 01: tlte subject of this Grass, or an extract
from tlte communication of some Spanish gen
tleman. On reading in tho Washington City
papers, however, a communication from a dis
tinguished citizen of Maryland to tho Agricul
tural Society, I determined to procure, impossi
ble, the seed of it, and to ascertain whether or
not it would be fount! to exhibit in Alabama,
and its climate and soil, the same valuable qual
From the communication before mentioned,
a Doctor Hardeman, of Missouri, was stated
us he gentleman to whom the country was in
debted for bringing into notico and usefulness,
this valuable vegetable acquisition. Tho Doc
tor was not unknown to me ns one of theso few
minds who can blend together a fair and manly
pursuit after tho good things of this life, witii
that happy degree of philanthropy which can
not be satisfied without adding something to the
general stock of human comfort and happiness
—and tho omipodo of those who can wrap
themselves up in the slazy web of self, Rnd
contemplate evory thing tin ough that (».o them)
delightful medium. 1 learned that his patri
otism was equalled by his liberality and I wrote
to him my desire to give to this section of the
Union the advantages, if possible, attributed to
this valuable plant. On the receipt of my lei-
tef, he immediately forwarded me, by mail, the
remaining few seeds lie ha I left, and which 011
receiving, I quickly planted, and I now view it
us a remaining duty to the public, to put them
in possession of the result, which fixes in mv
opinion the character of this plant, to this sec
tion of the Union us almost invaluable.' To
the citizens of your town nnd vicinity, I am as
sured its vnluo can hardly be calculated.
On rcceivicg the seed, say in March, early,
I planted them in a small bed, by drilling, pla
cing the soed about six incites apart. They
caiue up a few days, and appeared in the form
of young Oats. On getting about six inches
high, I took them up after a rain, nnd sot them,
agrccahle to the Doctor’s directions, in rows,
two feet apart, and eighteen inches from plant
to plant, in sandy pine land slightly manured.
Washington City papers two or tlirea year*
back, it will be seen that a distinguished Far-,
nice and Iron Master slates, in a coimnuiiica*r
lion on the subject of this grass, he found, op
trial, such were its nutritive qualities that his
mules performed their work wi lt, with plenty of
this grass and salt, rendorifig tho addition of
corn unnecessary, I discover that it conies to
maturity one year sooner in this section of the
Union titan in Maryland or Missouri, Tito
second year I found a few seed stalks, and the
third, say last year; J gathered t ho seed, a part
ol which I send you for distribution amongst
some of your enterprising citizens who will not
forget to “go and do likewise.” In the com
munication before reforted to, it will be found
tin: e limatioo was, that “one acre was fully
competent to the support of twenty head of cat
tle during the summer” That it would be ud-
mirabiu for iho production of milk or butler,
there cannot remain a doubt, nnd 11 little atten
tion to its cultivation would preclude the neces
sity of purchasing northern hay, is as plain as
that it would add to tlte Curolbrt and general
prosperity of tho while community,* Amongst
many citizens of tlte South American republics
and 10 the West Indies, Guinea grass is culti-
vatod; but gama [she-deer or due] grass is cer
tainly far superior in value. Tim duration of
the roots I hnvo not learned—mine are putting
out most vigorously this fourth year—a singu
larly valuable properly, different from inost.o-
ther grasses, is, that when the seed is ripening
on the end of tho seed stalks, six to eight feet
high, the mass of leaves appears not to under*
go any change, and it may be cut immediately
after tho seed is all gathered, say by the middle
of June. The seed is formed, milking a joint
ed appearance at the end of the seed stalk, ri
pening and filling off one seed at a time. They
must be watched add gathered daily, as differ
ent birds appear to watch for them.
Should the cultivation and possession of this
plant prove a source of additional wealth, and
add to tho welfare of tho citizens of your vicini
ty, I shall congratulate myselt for my good for
tune in being instrumental in producing so desi
rable a circumstance. I shall forward an addi
tional parcel of seed this summer.

and readily cured, Tho last year gave a moat
decisive proof that it is hardly affected by
drought its production being equal to the pre-
vioui year—and the iajt winter, that our se
verest cold does not affect the roots, now about
six inches in diameter, penetrating the eatth
perpendicularly, to a great depth,
A most accurate cutting nnd weighing, has
determined, that an acre will yield (of pine
land.manured) from two hundred to two hun~
A good Shot.—One of the best shots 1 ever
heard of, was made with a percussion gun.—
About ten or twelve years ngo, an Eastern saoro
vessel was frozen up in this rivor, and her pro
visions- exhausted, the Captain went on shoro
to see “how the land laid,” in other words, to
to make a rccunnoissunce oflieu roosts. Old
Mrs. — ■ , who was celebrated for the num
ber of her domestic, fowls, could not bargain
with the Captain for any of his “assorted car
go;” at length he agreed to give a silver dollar
for a shot among the poultry, and agieed to
shoot a gun without a flint—this was accepted
by die old lady, provided she loaded the gun,
which she stipulated to do fairly. Capt. Eob-
stay, who was up to a thing or two, went on
board took down Old Blue Trigger, (just al
tered to the percussion principle) a large silver
sighted trumpet muzzled gun, imported beforo
the revolution, to slmot swans 011 the Potomac,
put in six fingets clear of the wads, then rut off
tho ramrod level with tho muzzle, and returned
on shure, reinforced by his mate and ronk.—
TI10 old lady, after trying the ramrod, very de
liberately took off n small thimble, which sho
used ns a charger, and having loaded with a
[nimble full of powder nnd an equal quantity
of shot, delivered the gun to Cup'. U"h*iny t
who thea placed six fence-rails iu two rows, at
1 foot distance, mid baiting with com hriweeu
them, so soon ns the poultry mounted the rails
.■nd began to feed, with their heads between
the rows, Bobstny took a position so as to en
filade the whole defile—slap, bang, went Old
Blue Trigger, with n most horrid explosion.'
Huzza, for Old Blue Trigger, shouted tho
Captain—huzza, shouted tho mate—huzza,
shouted tho cook—“God have m rcy on mo,”
s tid the old lady—hiss, went the geese—gob
ble, gobble, gobble, went the turkeys—quack,
quark, quack, went tbe ducks. 'evemeen
turkeys, nino geese, five ducks, thirteen chick
ens, and the house pig, were the fruits of Capt.
Bobstay’s exploit.—Sport Magazine.
Curious method of splitting Rocks.—In tho
granite quaries near Seriiignp.mim, tho most
enormous blocks are separated from the solid
mck by the following neat and simple process.
Tire workman having found a portion of the
lock sufficiently extensivo, and situated near
the edge of tho part already quarried, lays bare
die upper surface,and makes 00 it aline in tho
direction of tho iattfuded separation, along
which a groove is cut with a chisel, about 4
couplo of inches in depth. Above this groove •
narrow lino of fire is then kindled, and main
tained till the rock below is thoroughly heated,
immediately upon n hich u line of men and wo
men, each provided with u pot full of cold wa
ter, suddenly sweep off the ashes, arid pour tho
water into tho heated groove, when tho rock at
iiueo splits with a clean fracture. Square
blocks of six feet in the side, and upwards of
eighty feet in longth, are sometimes dotached
by tliis method. Such a block would weigh
nearly 500,00(7 pounds.
A lawyer who was pleading, happened to be
situated between two gentlemen of tbo name of
Taylor, and wishing to be witty, remarked at
the close of his speech, that it tviug two Tailors
on tiis side, he roulil not fail 10 obtain hi* suit;
1 hereupon his adversary was polite enough tn
congratulate him, but at tho same time observ
ed that the supporters to whom he alluded must
bo miserably poor, as it was evident they bad
but one goose between them.
