The editor of the Montgomery Ledger, wLo is a+raCliCul farmer, has m-nic the follow is, proposition to his former slaves in order to secure their labor for next year. The plan at first blush seems a little extravagant, bin when it is remembered what a difference iu production results from stimulated and un willing or ill rejuitted labor, the moral excel lence of it cannot be over estimated; and again, when reduced to figures it will uoi seem so far out of tbe way as at first may appear “ Our proposition is to offer them one hall tbe crop made—they paying half tbe ex penses, half the land rent, &c. We have proposed this to our former tie groes, who are still at home, aud they have expressed their willing assent to it, and these are the first negroes that we have heard ol who have made a contract for uext year. Negroes, as a general tiling, where they hare been treated properly heretofore, pro ter to remain at their old homes, when they can feel assured that they will not be imposed upon. Although there has been great effort to drive them from their old owners, by dil ferent sorts of reports—as for instance that if they make a contract to remain with their old masters next year, they will remain iu slavery for five years longer. Where such re ports start lroin we are honestly uuabte to say*; but they are in circulation, and we must take the proper steps to correct them if we wish to retain them, and the best way to do this is by offering liberal terms for worth We have not confirmed tie terms with our servants, as yet, but will draw up the arti cles of partnership as soon as we have the time. We will now proceed to figures, auei fake thirty bauds for the number. These thirty hands will easily cultivate 600 acres, of this 300 will be in cotton, making 160 bales, 200 acres in corn, making 4000 bush els—lSO bales weighing 500 lbs, at 80c. will come to $22,500, 400 bushels corn at 60c. will be S2OOO. The total of the crop will then be $24,500. At $3 per acre rent, tin half 500 acres will Come to $750. Allowing 160 lbs. meal to the h .nd, lor 30 bands, the total will be 4500 lbs. which at 20c. wilt come to $9oO, tbe hall of which is $450. Half ol the corn used lor ten mouths, beginning Ist November, fur 20 mutes and thirty baud-,, will be about 2500 bushels, the half of which at 60c. will be $625. Toe hiie ol half the routes at $25 each, w ill be $250, t x,'t-nst s lot tools of all kiuUs SSOO, bait $250. The sum total ot expenses mi firs, of September next, $2375, this taken from me half of $24,500 will leave to be divided between 30 hands $10,125 or $837 in r tuud numbers. The proprietor will get $12,250 as liis ball of the crop, with $750 added lor their part of the lent, making $13,000. If this calculation can be relied on, the negro is Stimulated to work, and the pro prietor does better than he ever did w hen he held him us a slave. Some plantations will go over this estimate, and some will couie ender it; we have only taken middle ground. We have told ours that wo would not em ploy the mothers of small children, but leave ibern to be supported by the men and sucu children as couid work ; the children to eui ploy.'d to be estimat and, by agreement, as in now many should constitute a full liaud.— The mothers to have their own gardens and potato patches, spin clothes and wash tor the lamily. AH to pay their own doctor's bills, and to be charged witit loss of time j all to he under the direction of a superin tendent, black or white, as the contractor sees fit; and all obligating tbemseiver togoou older and obedience, and to carry on ah the usual wotk ol the plantation, oi whutevci kind—cleaning ditches, making tenCes, build ing necessai)’ houses, working gaiueus, &c. This is our p.au. Any planter who can suggest a better, let us near bom him.

E.wtuv s Improved Cotton-Gin.— Among the numerous valuable improvements iu ma chinery on exhibition.at the Fair of the American Institute, few attract more atten tion, and none are of greater intrinsic value than the Universal Patent Cotton-Gin ot Horace L. Emery, of the Agricultural Works st Albany The advantages of this gin j; irst. that it prevents ail bridging, clog ging and breaking of the roll, and ccono raizea the force required to driye the giu : second, it delivers the lint free from' dust aud sand; third, its portability, efficiency and cheapness, euablea all growers of cotton, large or small, to own and manage it. ’ 'This gin was exhibited at the W« r d's Far, in London, where it was commended, anu adopted as best calculated to promote the ' f rowth of cotton in India, Egypt, Turkey, taly and Brazil. It was approved by the Cotton supply Association of Manchester.

IV. Children of 14 years of age and up wards shall have the right of selecting their own master or mistress, provided Uie person thus designated is not unsuitable. V.
