Extract from President Garland's .Jddrcss.
The first important step in the success
ful cultivation of land, is by draining, to
withdraw from it all superfluous water ;
for while as much water as a soil can hold
by cappillary attraction is useful to vege
tation, yet where it superabounds, it acts
injuriously in several ways.
1. In the first place, it will cause the
particles of the soil to run closely togeth
er and adhere, and while die water is pre
sent, it is impossible to reduce such a
soil to a state of minute mechanical divi
sion. The roots, therefore, of plants, arc
by the close and impervious nature of the
soil prevented from branching and run
ning off in search of their proper food.
2. In the second place, from land sat
urated with water, evaporation is always
going on. The heat which is essential to
the conversion of water into vapour is
drawn from the soil, which is thus render
ed several degrees colder than it would
be, if properly drained. We not unfre
quently hear one speaking of a particular
soil as being cold. It is a very proper
designation, and the cause is to be found
in the presence of superfluous moisture;
so that the draining of such soils, as John
son well remarks, is equivalent to an en
tire change of climate.
3. In the third place, the in'erstices of
such a soil, being already filled with wa
ter, are impervious to air. Now the
presence of air in the pores of the soil is
necessary to supply Oxyen to the vegeta
ble matter, that it may g.adully decom
pose, and furnish nourishment to the
4. In the fourth place, the existence of
subsoilwater prevents rain-water from do
cending into the soil and reaching the
roots. But rain water absorbs the Nitrate
and Carbonate of Ammonia as it decends
through the atmosphere, and is the vehicle
upon which these nutricious elements are
c.ftnvpvpd to r*lanf«
~j ~ i t ’
5. Lastly. Draining actually deepens
the effective soil of a piece of wet land.—
The roots of plants, (unless they belong
to the family of aquatics) will not descend
into a soil saturated with water, arid where
water lies to within a few inches of the
surface, it is only these few inches which
can avail for the support of vegetation.
% removing the water, we do thereby
deepen the effective soil, into which the
roots of plants will freely descend.
Now, as subsoil water exerts so perni
cious an influence in the several ways men
tioned, you will at once perceive the ne
cessity of removing it from the soil. This
is a branch of agriculture which our farm
ers too much neglect. I see many spots
in your fields, indeed many entire fields,
which are almost unproductive from such
neglect, and which might be reclaimed by
a moderate expenditure of labor, for which
you would be amply remunerated the first
In tlie draining of lands there is room
for the display of a good deal of knowl
edge and skill. It is not that simple pro
cess which is usually imagined. Have
you never seen a farmer spend much time
and money in ditching a piece of land, and
to his astonishment it is not thereby drain
ed ] There is great judgment in locating
the trenches; and for this purpose a
knowledge of the strata through which the
springs rise is indispensable. It would
be useless labor merely to let the water run
into the drains after it has sprung through
the surface, and of no benefit lo carry it
off after it has soaked the soil. The ori
gin of springs must be detected ; and one
single drain judiciously disposed, cutting
off the water before it runs into the soil,
may lay dry a great extent of land. A
knowledge of the geology of the country
would in every case be useful to the fann
er ; and in the want of this, the advice of
a scientific and practical drainer is well
worth the cost at which it may be obtain
ed. I cannot dwell for the purpose of
entering into any details upon this subject
If l have succeeded in pointing out to you
its importance, 1 hope you will refer for
its practical application to such works as
treat specially upon it; of which, Lord El
kington’s is the best
Tiic llan who Kissed the Three
A young man who boarded at a bouse
in the country, wheie were several coy
damsels who seemed to imagine that men
are terrible creatures, whom it was an un
pardonable sin to look at, was one after
noon accosted by an acquaintance, and
asked what he thought of the young ladies
with whom he boarded I He replied that
they were very shy and reserved.
“iSo they are,” returned the other, “and
so much so that no gentleman could get
near enough to tell the color of their eyes.”
“That they may be,” said the boarder,
“yet I will stake a million that 1 can kiss
them all three, without any trouble.”
“That you cannot do,” replied his friend,
“it is an achievment which neither you nor,
any other man can accomplish.”
The other was positive and invited bis
friend to the house to witness his triumph. 1
They entered the room together, and the i
three girls were all at home sitting beside
their mother, and they all looked prim and
demure as John Rodgers at the stake.
Our hero assumed a very grave aspect,
even to dejection, and having looked wist
fully at the clock, breathed a sigh as deep
as Algebra, and as long as a femrle dia
logue at a street door. His singular de
portment now attracted the attention of’
the girls, who cast their slow opening eyes
up to his countenance. Perceiving the
impression he had made, he turned to his
companion and said,
“It wants three minutes of the time !”
“Do you speak of dinner ?” said the old
lady, laying down her sewing work.
“Dinner!” said he; with bewildered
aspect, and pointing, as if unconsciously,
with curled forefinger, at the clock.
A silence ensued, during which the fe
male part of her household gazed at the
young man, with irrepressible curiosity.
“You will see me decently interred,”
said he, again turning to his friend.
’ O o
His friend was as much puzzled as any
body present, and his embarrassment add
ed to the intended effect ; but the old la
dy, being no longer able to contain herself,
“Mr. G , pray what do you speak
“Nothing,” answered lie, in a lugubrous
tone, “but that last night a spirit appeared
unto me /” Here the girls rose to their
feet and drew near. “And the spirit gave
me warning that 1 should die exactly at
twelve o’clock to-day, and you see it wants
but half a minute of the time ! ’
The girls turned pale, and their hidden
sympathies were at once awakened for the
doomed. They stood chained to the spo',
looking alternately at the clock and at tht
unfortunate South. Ho then walked up
to the eldest of the girls, and taking her
by the hand, bade her a solemn farewell,
lie also imprinted a kiss upon her trem
bling lips, which she did not attempt to
resist. He then bade the second and third
farewell in the same tender and affection
ate manner. His object was achieved,
and that moment the clock struck twelve.
Hereupon, he looked around, surprised,
and ejaculated, “Who would have believ
ed that an apparition would tell such a
lie ’! It was probably the glto. tof Anna
nias or Sapphira.”
Ic was some time before the sober mai
dens understood the joke, and when they
did, they evinced no resentment. The
first kiss broke the ice ; and, thanks to the
ghost, they discovered there was some
pleasure in a bearded cheek.

undersigned have adopted the above, as
X the significant title of a Monthly Paper,
which with sufficient encouragement, they pro
pose to publish in the City of Macon, to he de
voted to the interests of Temperance, Educa
tion and Religion.
The plan ofthis work was first suggested, in
view ot the rapidly growing numbers within the
ranks of the Sons of Temperance, and the in
creasing demand for light, touching the objects
and movements of this benevolent and flourish
ing“ Order.” We believe that a Divine agency
is manifest in the startling progress and triumphs
of this great moral organization. It is God’s
work. He is now summoning his “embattled
hosts” for a crusade against the greatest foe that
ever scourged the earth. Temperance, there
fore, will stand prominent upon our banner.
But while we march under the “triple flag,”
and solicit the patronage and fostering care of
“The Sons,' yet, we shall claim the privilege
of striking some good blows for Education and
Religion. “The Order of the Soils,” we regard,
under God, as the handmaid of the Church, the
harbinger ofßeligion—“preparing the way ofthe
We shall spare no pains to make Tile
Crusader a work of standard merit ; to give
it a decided character for u-efulness, and to
make it a work interesting to general readers.

ly numbers, containing Sixteen quarto pages
each, at One Dollar per annum, payable on the
delivery ofthe first number. The Second Num
ber will in no ease be sent to a subscriber unless
the subscription price shall have been forwarded
previously to the time of its issue.
Persons acting as agents will receive ten per
cent, upon all amounts remitted. Upon the re
ception of twenty cash subscribers, the agent
shall also be entitled to a copy of the work as a
bonus. It is especially desired that those who
may become agents, or may interest themselves
in obtaining subscribers, will act immediately,
and forward such names as may be pledged, at
the earliest possible date, as it is our wish to
make our first issue by the Ist of February, if
the requisite patronage can be secured.
Editors who may be friendly to the enterprise,
will oblige us by giving this Prospectus an inser

of the Editors.

I'o the Honorable Inferior Court of Ilibb County'
The undersigned in obedience to your request,
has carefully examined the Books and Pnpejs
showing the indebtedness of the County of Bibb)
and he is happy to state that lie finds that the
County is able to pay all its debts.
Since September, 1847, there lias been paid
and canceled, County Orders amounting to the
sum 0f5i12,477 27.
A plain record has been kept of the payment
of each Order and a copy in substance of each,
and by whom paid, is entered on the Minutes
of this Court, that every tax payer who Avislies
can see what lias become of bis money paid to
the Tax Collector.
3 he indebtedness of the County- as shown from
the Clerk’s Books, is $2,546 20
Assets Avhich can he made available, 2,639 00
Excess in favor ofthe County, $92 80
This may approximate to the true amount, but
I regret to add that it is not altogether reliable.
In some instances Orders marked “paid” on the
Bill book,are yet in circulation, and some Or
ders are in circulation that have never been
entered on the Clerk’s books. I would respect
fully suggest that a iicav set ofßooks be opened
and that after the amount now due the Countv
is applied in extinguishment of outstanding debts
that all persons holding Orders, if there should
he any, present them to this Court and secure in
lieu thereof, County Scrip, redeemable in Taxes,
and that all Orders issued hereafter be redeemable
in Taxes, and so expressed in the face thereof
This would give the County a good credit and
enable it to obtain labor and materials at fair
prices. T. I’. STUBBS,

THE GLOBE :
.J Congressional, .Agricultural and Literary
FB3HE Editors of the Congressional Globe pro-
X pose anew publication. To deserve the
patronage which Congress has accorded to their
' reports of its debates, in receiving and making
! the Globe the official register, they intend to add
promptitude to whatever merit has hitherto re
commended the work. They will publish a
Daily Globe, to record the proceedings and de
bates as they occur ; and a Congressional Globe
periodically, as heretofore, embodying the re
ports of Congress separate from the miscellaneous
matter which will accompany them in the daily
print. To fill the sheet of the daily newspaper,
it is designed to gather the news from all quar
ters, and complete the contents by drawing from
every source that may be of most interest among
literary novelties, and of greatest utility in scien
tific and practical works on agriculture. For
material, the leading journals and periodicals of
France and Great Britain, treating of such sub
jects, will be consulted, and, it is hoped, advan
tageously used. Original essays, especially on
topics connected with agriculture, will be obtain
ed from the most enlightened and practical men
of our country.
i The Globe, as a newspaper, and ns a vehicle
i of information and amusement in other respec's,
I will be under the charge of Francis P. Blair
I and James C. Pickett. The Congressional
; department and business concerns of the paper
will be under the management of John G. Rives.
The public are familiar with Blair and Rives as
connected with the press. In introducing Mr.
Pickett as one of the concern, they will be al
lowed to say a few words of him. lie is a gen
tleman favorable known to the Government, for
talent and judgment which distinguished his di
plomatic service while connected with the mis
sion to Quito ; and more recently when Charge
d'Affaires to Peru. From his pen mainly the
Globe will derive the selections and translations
from the French journals and periodicals, the
comments on them, and the other literary articles
which will he found among its chief attractions.
The Globe will be published daily during the
session of Congress, and Weekly the balance of
the year, and will undergo distribution in the
form of a Weekly Globe, a Congressional Globe
arid an Appendix.
The Weekly Globe will he the vehicle of the
miscellaneous articles of the daily print, w ith a
synopsis of the Congressional proceedings.
The Congressional Globe will embody, as it
has done for the last sixteen years, Congression
al pioceedingsand debates exclusively.
The Appendix will embrace the revised
speeches separately, and the messages of the
President of the United States, and the reports
of the Heads ofthe Executive Departments.
The Congressional Globe and Appendix w ill
he published as fust as the proceedings of Con
gress will make a number. Subscribers may ex
pect one number of each a week during the first
four weeks of a session, and two or three num
bers of each a week afterwards, until the end of
Nothing of a political party aspect will appear
in the Globe save that which will he found in
the Congressiohal reports. A paper assuming

maintain its character if the editorial columns
reflect a party lute. The Editors of the Globe
