She however understood my hesita tion. “You were going to ask why I do not go to the table and mingle with the family," she said. I am out of the world. I mingle neither in its bustles nor pleasure, nor in any of its customs. They have uo charm to me, and have had none for many years. No one knows me, and I wish to make no friends. No one can afford to be sociable with me for an hour, for I shall not trouble you again. I asked no more qestions, for I perceived she bad told me all she would of herself; but I obeyed her wish, and was social with her. examined Iter books, of which she had many They indicated a highly cultivated taste.— Most of them were in German, n few in Latin, a few old English and Spanish authors. Glanc ing over the pages I observed the initials E. II wiitten on the oack of several volumes. A suspicion flashed across iny mind that Boss was an assumed name, and her manner of re serve and mystery tended to deepen it. I re solved to remomber those initials; nt some future time they might throw some light on her history. I'longed, but dared not question ber of the past. From her books I turned to her pictures but no sooner had I observed them than my eye was struck by a large painting, in a rich ly-gilt frame, which bung in otto corner of the room, and which was covered by a curtain of black silk. She saw my glance of surprise and curiosity. •• You would like to see that portrait!” she said* t* I think I cau promise you that if you live louger than 1 do, you can sec it.” 1 spent more than an hour with her, and then bade her good evening with a feeling of relief. It was like going out of a haunted chamber. As I left the room she slipped a gold piece in to my hand for my fee, and again thanked me for my services. I lived in that bouse a year longer, but I did not see her face again. She never came to the table or the parlor where the other boarders were assembled. She never left her room in the daytime.. Sometimes, when returning from a night case, in the dim grey of the morn ing, 1 recognized her tall form, in its dark gar ments, going across the fields for a morning walk ; but her face was always turned from me ; and every S.tbbaih evening, thickly veil ed, she attended the even in-service. At tho end of the year 1 married iny bolov ed Alice, the daughter of our clergyman. On my wedding Eve, as I was leaving my board ing house for the last time, (for I had prosper ed so that I hail bought a neat cottage and furnished it in readiness for my bride.) Miss Boss met me upon the stairs. Sho took my hand with a quick grasp, and put into it a beautiful pearl bracelet. “Give this to your bride,” she said hurried ly ; “ luff mind, jt is a gift from you and not from me—remember !“ And before I could collect tnyself for a reply she had disappeared in her chamber. I could scarcely proceed, so agitated was I by this strange occurence. What interest had this singular woman in my Alice or in me 1 And why must I keep secret even from my wife the fact of my acquaintance with her ? It was with a feeling of awe and dread, which I could not withstand, that I placed the costly gift on tho fair ann of my bride; and when her smiling blue eyes looked into mine, with such pleased surprise, I longed to tell her all I knew of the mysterious giver. Just opposite our ofn little pottage lived Alice's father anfl step-mother; her own moth er, she told me. had been dead many years, Mr. Hudson was a man of very reserved habits, yet of a benevolent disposition! Toward Alice he was always tenderly affectionate; between him and bis second wife there was little sym pathy, yet she was an amiable woman, and endeavored to please him to the best of her ability. I often thought that there was some grief preying upon Mr. Hudson’s mind, which was unknown even to bis familythat there was some sorrow of the past which he could neither forget nor confide to another. lie would sit musing for hours, heedless of the hum of conversation going on about him; and then, suddenly roused from his reverie to real life. I haye seen his face wear a strange, troubled expression. . ... Alice, in reply lo my questioning, said he had' always been so, and she thought he had never ceased mourning for her mother; that often, when they were alone, ho would talk to her of her mother’s beauty and rare attain ments. Ilis first wife had been a gifted wo man—superior in mental qualities to most or her sex ; but I felt that affectionate remem brance of the dead could not alone weigh down a mind of such §trcngth_ as his. The more familiar I became with him. the warmer my attachment grew for him, "and the more I be came convinced that he was haunted by pain ful recollections. lie spent much of his time with us; oftcu, upon a summer day. coming to our little gar den to write or think upon his sermons. v\ hen our little girl was born, he seemed d™ wn wards us by a new tenderness, vv e named it Eleanor in memory of his first wife, and from that day it seemed to us that the child had the first and brat place in heart. Three years after our marriage. Mr. Hud son suddenly grew ill. I attended him. and watched him almost constanly during his brief sickness. Going earlier than usual, one morn ing into bis room. I found a splendid bouquet lying upon his Ublc; white and blush roses, heavy watcr-lillics, and rich phanstes, of and purple hues. As I entered abruptly he made a motion to conceal them, hut, meeting my glance, he only laid them upon the outside of his bed. I approached, and, while standing by his bedside, carelessly took the flower, m ^••Thcsc are beautiful!” I said. “It cannot be that Alice has brought them to you so ear- ly ’“No,” he answered, taking them rather eag erly from my hand, “ Alien did not gtvc me theso—my wife brought them in to me. I said nothing more, but the little circum stance struck me as singular, for Mrs. Hudson was the last person from wl.otn I should have expected such a gift. True, she was ammb e and kindly disposed, but senUment was no part of her nature. She loved only the use ful; the beautiful she did not comprehend.

She looked sur prised and thoughtful, and could not but thim. it strange that her step-mother had suddenly grown romantic; but she did not doubt the truth of her father’s reply. From that morning he rapidly grew worse. Sometimes his mind wandered, and then the name always on his lips was Eleanor. “Is she come V he would say; looking a- bout him with a wild moumfuhicss. •• She promised to see me once more—Jet me hear her voice once again. Oh. why wns I so rash, and she so proud ? She always loved me.

His mind seemed to wan der, his manner was cheerful, and he appear- ed again like himself. One evening he said lie could sleep without watchers, and urged us all so strongly to retire, that we yielded and left him alone. After a restless night, I rose as as it was Hawn, and hastened to liis room, approached liis bedside quickly, but there I stopped, and gazed in breathless silence upon the scene before me. Mr. Hudson lay dead, with a serene smile upon his lips, nnd in his folded hands I saw again a beautiful garland of flowers! Years passed. The grass grew over his grave, and new cares and new joys made us forget our mourning for him. But often, in the wakeful hours of night, that solemn picture would float before me. and I tried in vain to account for its seeming mystery. Last night, a stormy December cveuiug, as I sat by the fire, reading with my daughter, the door-bell suddeuly pulled violently, and I went myself toanswer it. A servant man stood there, drenched with snow, and iu hurried accents besought me to go to liis mistress, who was dy ing. 1 looked out iuto the night. The storm was increasing and my warm fire and the society of my family seemed never so irresistible. Is she really dying ?” I asked. Yes, sir," was the reply, “they say she will never sec the morning.” Then, my man, there is no need of my go ing. She will be better with only her frieuds about her. I cannot do any good. The man looked up into my face. “Are you not Dr. Ware?” he asked. “That is my name,” I replied. “And did you not practice once elsewhere?” And he named our former residence. Yes,” I answered again, with some wonder. Then, sir, you must come to my mistress. It is not that she thinks you can save her, hut she wants to sco you ; and your wife is to come with you. She hade tne say she had something to tell you. I said no more, hut immediately set out, accompanied by Alice, who wondered greatly at the unusual request. The man walked oil by our side, serving as a guide. We passed through several streets, ami at last stopped nt the door of a large bouse, llcfore I could read the uamc on the (date a woman opened- the door, uud led us, by a broad staircase, to lofty ami richly-furnished chamber. Here we waited while sho entered an inuer apartment As 1 wanned myself, standing by the lire something struck inc as familiar in the appear ance of the room- Where Imd l seen that mosaic table, those antique books, those rich, softly colored paiutings ? 1 mused in vain.

It was Miss Boss who had sent fur me. was now aunmnuJ i-itii I lie licit r-Hiiu ; and there, as 1 expected, on it bed ot snowy whiteness, lay the strange lady who hail once so troubled my imagination, i went to lu-r and took her hand. I am sorry to find you ill. Miss Ross,” said quietly. She looked nt me earnestly, nnd said : “You recognize me, then ; I am glad you remember Is this Alice ? Yes,” I answered; and Alice and I sat down by her bedside. She hail grown old fast in the years which had elapsed since our last meeting. There were deep lines about lier keen black eyes, yet they had lost none of their keenness: and the mouth, though thin and closely drawn, yet retained traces of its former beauty. She looked nt us both iiffcntly, but when lier eyes met those Alice, there was a sweetness and tenderness in their expression which I liad never seen before. I am going to tell you something,” sho said, which may make you feel sad, hut cannot now make you unhappy. I know that your happiness is secure, iu your mutual love for your beautiful child. I have watched you. Alice, ever since you were a babe in the cra dle; and I have watched you. Dr. Ware; ever since the day you began to love Alice, 1 have always been uear you since, and I know you arc worthy of each other. “Long ago—I am old now, and this Imp pencil when I wns very young—I became at tached to, and soon inarrifd. a young man whom I «hall call Lewis.

My acquaintance with Lewis was contrary to the wishes of nty pa rents ; they urged mo to give him up, and I. seeing they would never consent to our union fled with him from their displeasure. He was a wild young man, but I did not enre for that, since he was handsome, gifted, learned, anil knew how to display every accomplishment to the best advantage. But I was his equal, even in learning. No pains or expense had been spared in my educations ; and how I gloried in the consciousness that I wns fitted to be the companion of such a inind as '"“We love each other ardently; nnd life, viewed by the light of enthusiasm, promised only happiness. My husband had studied ledicinc. and began practice iu a small town „1 a distance from my native place. We were poor, and our style of living was very differ- entfrom that to which I hail been accustomed, but I found perfect conlentmcut in iny hus band’s confidence and affection. In two years a babe was born, and life, from wild romance, grew suddenly real. I loved the child, and willingly staid away from all social enjoyments to devote myself to it; auu , did he love it; yet he was so vexed that could uot now, at any moment he Wished, leave my infant to join him in some amusement, that he began to learn to do without tne in his pleasures ; and then, for mo, began the bitter ness of life. I cannot tell you the trouble that ensued. Gradually his early habits of dissipation re turned, until he grew reckless and passionate, and I impstient and weary. Yet, even then, at intervals, he wonld be peuiteut, and with llic most ardent promises would seek toregnd my affection. But that he always had. Moved him more than all human beings, even when he wronged me most. I strove to win him hack to home affections; I implored him to i,ity his innocent child, cveu if he had no more love for me. He would bo softened for •i while, would caress me, call me his good an- ccl but at the first temptation the wine cup would bo lifted to bis lips, and misery would f ° “One night as I *at along, rocking my child ijen n year old, and weeping over my sorrow ful lot, there was a knock at my door, and a voun- man, an old acquaintance and neigh bor of my girlhood, entered. He brought a message from my father, now my only parent, who Was dying, and had sent for me to come and receive his "blessing and forgiveness. Tlic words sent a thrill of joy through my heart. “When shall I go?” I asked of young William Gray. “Now,” he answered. “I was desired not to wait for yon an honr, bat to bring you im mediately hack with me. To all appearances yonr father is on his death-bed, and lie longs to see your face once more.” “1 will go instantly.” I replied, nnd laying my bafts in the cradle, I called my servant girl to watch her. I knew that Lewis might not be in before morning; and ere that time 1 could lie a good way on my journey. I told tho girl where I was going,—bade her take care of the child till my return, nnd leaving message for Lewis, explaining iny sudden de parture, I hurried away. In less than nn hour, we were driving rapidly out of the town, scarcely waited for the changing of horses, so eager was I to embrace my dying parent. I thought of nil liis passionate fondness for inc when 1 was a child, pride in my brilliant ami happy girlhood, iny disobedience, flic reward of all his love. What if he should die heforcl reached him ! The thought was inexpressibly painful. lint before the next sunset, and when with in a few miles of my father’s residence we were suddenly overtaken by my husband, who, to iny uuutterablo-aurprise. accused me of eloping from him with young William Gray, and commanded me to return home. I indig nantly denied the shameful charge, and refus ed to obey his violent command. Many words followed, bitter and stinging on both sides, for be, in rage, licrsistcd in his false accusation, and 1. mortified and indignant, refused to turn back with him. At last, in defiance of liis anger, I hade William drire ou with speed, and I was soon within the shelter of iny father’' house. “I had intended to return the next day, but burning with a sense of injustice and wrong, I waited for Lewis to come after mo and con fess his error. He did not come. Weeks lasscd, and in mental anguish which cannot >c told, I waited for him to take the first step toward reconciliation. My heart yearned to ward him with all its early fondness—it yearn ed with love and pity too painful to bear, to ward my tender child; hut 'pride, iny ruling lassion. would, as ever, domineer over all my letter feelings. I had been insulted; and should I, by ail attempt at reconciliation, up pareutly confess that I had been in error ? No —I had ever been true to him when he least deserved it. He Imd wronged inc; nnd lie, not I, must sue for pardon. “My father ilieil, :m«l left me the heiress of all his wealth. How I h-nged to bestow it all on these beloved ones ! The desire overcame iny pride. I wiotcto l-icwis explaining again the perfect inuoceucc of my abrupt departure, telling him how I had waited and watched his coming. I informed him also of my suddeu wealth, and begged him to come for me and share all that was become mine. The letter was haughtily anil coldly returned without an answer. Then all iny pride awoke again, nnd I re solved that if ever we were reconciled, it should be hr his confession of injustice. I remained in iny fat lief s house, living alone, mistress of its now cheerless splendor. Mouths, years passed, ami no word, no message from 1113- hus band, assured inc that lie oven remembered my existence, '.ill suddenly came the startling news that he had sued for a divorce. I scorn ed to oppose him, lie proved to satisfaction my abandonment of him. and f became that out cast iu the world—a divorced wife! “Tliis crisis past, my pride was shattered, and remorse alone remained tome. Oh. if I could have humbled myself, have gone to my deluded husband, and by tears ami prayoru, besought a return of liis love ami confidence, ere it was too late! But now all my self-re proaches were in vain—he was separated from me forever; and the child, as il grew up. was taught to believe me dead. Lewis told her no falsehood. I was dead lo llu-iii and all Ihe world beside. • -Mm«; I rthror, Ottttl Uj, r.Le hermit in my gloomy mansion. Then came a deep longing, and irresistible impulse to sec them once more. They had been my idols through all; and though unseen and unheeded, I must still worship tliciq. I sold iny posses siotis, and went in search of them. At lust I found them—but how changed! The terrible event had altered my husband's whole nature. He had lain aside forever liis dissipation and folly, and in a silent corner of the world he was living an obscure clergyman.—Within a few ye.-irs lie had married again ; liis child was growing up in beauty and intelligence - he seemed happy and at peace. “I could not see them face to face, for now it would only bring to thorn misery and sor- I hid myself under a feigned name, where I could watch them unseen ; mid I shun ned all friendship or acquaintance, that I might never coinc in their way. My daughter thought me dead ; my husband—I call him mine, for lie never truly belonged to another—thought me still in my father’s home. “At last I knew that be was dying. In the days of our old love we had often gathered flowers together ; and now, one early morning, I gathered a rare bouquet, that might sccin like the Eleanor of old times, and watching my opportunity, I entered liis chamber. Had a spirit risen from the dead, he could not have been more overcome. I. too. trembled in my very heart with emotion, hut X felt that my hour had come—that I had suffered aud wait ed long, aud now I must speak. I told him a- gain Ihe story of iny innocence,-as I had told him long ago, when he was too angry to believe me. I called Heaven to witness that I loved him unceasingly, even when neglected and wronged by him—that it was pride alone which had sundered us. I told him of the years I had lived within sight of his dwelling unknown and unloved by human kind. His heart was melted; lie forgave me; and with tears, such as only a strong mail weeps, he implored iny forgiveness. A footstep approached, and I fled away, for I had no desire to bring unhap piness to the woman who had taken my place. ■Once more I saw him; he promised to be alone one morning to sec inc. Before dawn I went to him. They thought he died alone. It was uot so. He breathed liis last in my sup- r jrtiug arms. 1 folded his hands on my breast, kissed his beloved brow, I closed liis eyes, and thanked the Almighty that unto me and not another, had been given this last, sacred duty of love. “Alice, my daughter!” Her lips faltered in !hc utterance; she sank back and closed lie; eyes. Alice hung weeping over her bed. I step ped into the next room and lifted the veil from the mysterious picture. It was a faithful por trait, drawn by the jvcucil of memory and af fection, of l^-wis Hudson, the father of Alice. Cii.uiArrrit better than Ciikoit.—\Ve often hear young men who have credit but no means, dolefully contrasting their lot with that of rich men’s sons. Yet the longer we live, the more we arc convinced that the old mcrcluint was right, who said to us when wc began to live, “Industry, my la«l, is better than ingots of gold, anil cliar acter more valuable than credit.’’ \Ye could furnish, if need were, from 3 score of illustra tions to prove the truth of his remark. 111 all branches of business, in nil avocations, charac ter, in the long run, is the best capital. Say* Poor Richard: "The sound of your hammer at live in the morning, or nine at night, heard by a creditor, makes him easy for six months Ion- ger; hut if he sees you at a gambling-table, or bears your voice at a tavern, when you should be at work, he semis for liis money the next <lay.” What is true of the young lucclianic, is trite also of the young inercliaiit or young law yer. Old ami sagacioua linns will not long con tinue to give credit for tliousands of dollars, when they sec the purchaser, if a young man, driving fast horses, or lounging in drinking sa loons. Clients will not intrust their eases to advocates, however brilliant, who frequent the card-table, the wine party, or the race course. It is better in beginning life, to secure a repu tation for industry' ««d probity, than to own bouses and lands, if with them you have no character.—U.

To the extreme right of the town, looking it from the river, may be seen a comfortable- looking building, surrounded by China trees; just such a place as sentimental misses dream of when they have indistinct notions of “settling in the world” This little “suburban Kmdbox,” however, is not occupied by the arts of love, nor the airs of the lute, hut by a strong limb of the law, a gnarled one, too, who knuckles down to business, and digs out of tlie “uncertainties of his profession” decisions, and reason*, and causes, and effects, nowhere to-be' met with, in the science called par excellence, the “perfection oriiuman reason.” Around the interior walls of this romantic- looking place may be found an extensive libra ry, where all the ‘‘statutes,” from Moses’ time down to the present day, range side by side; in these musty I looks the owner revels dav and night, digesting “digcsls,” and growing the while sallow, witli indigestion. On the evening-time of a tine summer's day, the sage lawyer might have been seen walled in witli I*ooks and manuscripts, his eye full of thought, and liis bald high forehead sparkling with tho rays of the setting sun, as if his genius was making* itself visible to tlie senses; page after jage he searched musty parchments were scanned *n expression of care and anxiety in dented itself on tlie stern features of liis face, and with a sigh of despair he desisted from his labors, uttering aloud his feeling that he feared the case was a hopeless one. Then lie renewed again his mental labor with tenfold vigor, making the very silence, with which he pursued his thoughts, ominous, as a spirit were in his presence. The door of the lawyer’s office opened, and there pressed forward the tall, gaunt figure of 1 man, a perfect model of physical jiowcr and en durance—a western flatboatinan. The lawyer liecded not liis presence, and started its if from a dream, as the harsh tones of inquiry grated upon his ear: “ Docs a '.Squire live here?” “ They call tne so,” wits the reply, as soon as he had recovered from his astonishment “ Well, .Squire,” continued tlie intruder, “ have got r. ease for 3 011, and I want jestess, if i costs the Ik's! load of produce that ever came from In-di-an.” The man of law asked what was the difficulty. “It’s this, ’.Squire: I’m lioimd for Orleans, anil put m here for coffee and other little lixins, map with a face whiskered up like a prairie ig, sa3’s, says he, “ ‘Stranger, I sec 3'011’ve got cocks on hoard of your Imat—bring one ashore, and I’ll pit one against him that’ll lick his legs off' in less time than you can gaff him.’ Well, 'Squire, I never take a Jar. Says I, ‘Stranger, I’m thar at wunce;’ and in twcnt3* minutes the cocks were on the levee, like perfect saints. •• We chucked them together, and ni3‘ bird, Squire, now mind, ’Squire, my bird never struck t lick, not a single blow, but tuck to his heels and run, and I13- thunders, tjirew up his feed, nelewclly vomited. The stakeholders gave up he money agin me, and now I want jestess; as lire as frogs, uiy bird was physicked, or he’d lood up to his business like a wild caL” The lawyer heard the shny with patience, nut flatly refused to have any thing to do with tie matter. Prchaps,” said the boatman, drawing out orpulent |MH'ket-liook, “preliaps 3’ou think I an’t pay— hero's the money; help 3'oursclf— ive me jcslcss, and draw on 1113- purse like an ox team.” To the astonishment of the flatlioatiiian, the lawyer still refused, hut unlike maiy of liis pro- r.vouon, pncliw would-be client, witliout charge, some general advice a I suit going on board of bis ■at, shoring off for New Orleans, and a ban- douing the suit altogether. The boatman stared with profound astonish ment, and asked Ihe lawyer, “ If lie was a sure noiigli ’Squire ?” Deceiving an affirmative reply, he pressed •very argument he could use, to have him un- lertake 1.1. ••*«. and get him “jestess;” hut hen he found that Ins eno,o Z. ..nnvaflin- he quietly seated himself for the first tinitypul iiat aside—crossed his legs—then looked up to the ceiling with an expression of great pa tience, and requested the “ ’Squire to read to him the Louisiana laws on cock-fighting,” The lawyer said ho-did not know a single sta tute of the State upon the subject Tlie lioat man star toil up as if ho had been shot, exclaim ing— No laws in the State on cock-lighting? No, no, 'Squire, 3’ou can't jiossuiii uie; give us tlie law.” The refusal again followed; the astonishment of the boatman increased, ami (browing himself into a coinieo heroic attitude, he waved liis long lingers around the side of the room and asked, “ What all them thar Ixxiks were about?’' “All about the law.” “ Well then, ’Squire, am I to understand tliat not one of them thar books con Lain a single law on cock-lighting?’ You are.” And, ’Squire, am I to understand that that* ain’t no laws in Louisiana on cock-lighting?” ' You are.” The astonishment of the lioatman at this rcpl3' fora moment was unbounded, and then sudden- ceased ; the awe with which lie looked upon i* **’Soilin'” also ceaseiL nnd risimiini. his the Squire” also ccaseil, and resuming his natural, awkward and familiar carriage, ho took iq, his hat, and walking to the door, with a broad grin of supreme contempt in liis face, he observed— “ That a ’Squire who did not know the laws cork-lighting; in liis opinion, was distinct^* infernal chuckle-headed fool.” Now anil Then. Mr. Simmons, a Senator from Rhode Island, the debate on tho Pacific Kail Road Bill made the following statement in regard to the manner and expense of getting cotton to mar ket daring the last year with Great Britian. In 1811, I remember to have scon twenty waggons come into Providence loaded with cotton from the State of Georgia, at a freight of twenty cents a pound, and that was the cheapest war ,wc could get our cotton, in time ~ war. I have some sons engaged in the cot- tou business, and I knew them to contract for cotton, in Memphis, Tennessee, lust fall, aud have it transported by railroad and steamboat New York, for one cent a pound, and it was not more than one eighth of a cent more than it would cost by steamboat to go dowu New Orleans and from there to New York by water. Hundreds and thousands of bales of cotton were ordered late in the last fall from Memphis, Tennessee, by railroad aud steamboat to New York, at a cent a pound freight, as great a distance as the cotton trav eled by wagons, in 1814, at twenty cents a pound. This is the practice; and tho reason of it is this : there has keen a declining ten dency in the cotton market, nnd they could make bargains and guaranty the delivery of the cotton in New York in fourteen days, and it cost only one eighth of a cent more than if it went all the way by water. \Vc can get cotton from .Memphis, Tennessee, to New York now for less than common insurance. That is the difference internal improvements liave made in supplying the people of this couutry with materials for clothing, since the war of 1812. JuDOMKNT AGAINST Cot.

SAVANNAII, January, 1859. Public attention being now directed to the pur chase of Fertilisers, we beg leave most earnestly to calf your attention to the above Card. Mr. G. Ober, the Genetal Agent in Italtimore for the sale of Kottlowoll’s Manipulated Guano, testimonials of so strong a character, as to autho rise us in commending to your most favorable aiten tion this valuable Fertiliser. We believe it to bo the most reliable and economical Manure now offer ed to the public. H will commend itself for the fol lowing reasons: 1st.—Because it is imported Guano, intimately combined, so as to meet the wants of Crop and Soil, and not a manufactured article. 2d.—Its fine and dry conidtion—making it ready for immediate application, without seiving or grind ing. - 3d.—In production of Crop and permanent im provemeut of Land, it surpasses all other Fertilizers, not excepting Peruvian Guano. 4th.—Its low price. Peruvian Guano contains 16 per cent Ammonia and only 25 to 30 per cent Phosphate of Lime: Ry reducing the costly Ammonia one-half, nnd doubling the Phosphate of Lime, a far more valuable Fertili zer must be produced. It has been demonstrated that 8 per cent of Ammonia is enough for all crops— more is injurious, besides expensive. Indeed, many prefer the No. 2 Manipulated Guano, because it cou tains a larger per centage of Phosphate of Lime the simple reason why Cotton Seed is so valuable i Manure is owing to this element alone. In Mary land and Virginia this article has been in use exten sively for several years, renovating the old and worn' out lands of those States, Our sister State, South Carolina, is a large patron. Cotton Planters give it the decided preference where it has been tried. Wo have transacted business with Mr John Kettlewell of Baltimore, tho Proprietor of this article, for sove ral years, imd have entire confidence in his integrity We beg that you will «t least try this article, if you are not disposed to vent are largely. Our object is to dissemiiiHte as widely as possible what we Relieve to be a public good. As hii intelligent Planter, you cannot hesitate, if you will but examine for yourself, and see how im portant it is to make our worn out lands to staud along side with the viigin soil. We are now ordering a supply from Dalttmcre, and if you will advise us on receipt of this, we will forward to your address such an amount as you may designate, at Baltimore prices viz : $48 per ton fo No. I, and 643 per ton for No. 2, of 2,010 lbs., adding cost of freight, Ac.—cash or its equivalent. If put ’ ii store the price will be 653 and 48 per tou in 8a- annah It is put up in new sacks and in beantifnl order. It can be applied broadcast, in hill or drill, in im mediate contact with the seed, without injury, an important advantage in quantities precisely as Pe ruvian, say from 100 to 300 lbs. per acre, with the benefit of improvement to lands, tne more it is lib erally applied.

John Kettl»well, Ksq.; Dear Sir.—Your favor of the 13th inst., came to hand yesterday, desiring me to give you the resnlt of iny experience with Peruvian and “Manipulated Guano'* Ibis year, upon my cotton crop, which Ido with much pleasure; but )t is necessary and proper that I inform you, that the “ Manipulated Guano” was not received till 10th April, which was abont ten or twelve days after I was done planting whore a had applied the Peruvian Guano; and I put the Manipulated” upon old and inferior land and tho yield has been about equal per aero. I used it upon poorer laud, that I might lie bettor able to know its value as a manure; and 1 am fully of opinion, that the production was doubled by tin* use of it, and the r**V #‘f better quslity, than upon the same kind o land where uo imuuh »*«» uaLu. *-*.., , : ment has proven so satisfactory to me, tnat I shall hereafter continue the use of your Manipulated, in preference to the Peruvian Guano. Yours, Ac.. ISAAC T. ROBINSON. P. S.—I perceive no difference in the quality of coUoq grown from the Manipulated and Peruvian Guano. SOUTH CAROLINA—COTTON AND CORN. Abbeville, 25th Oct. 1858. John Kettlewell, Esq ; Dear Sir:—Your favor of the 12th instant, asking my experience in the use of your “ Manipulated Gu uuo” is just to hand—I reply, with pleasure: I have ased five tons of it in the growth of cotton ou both old and fresh lands <xf mulatto soil, and the result is, that, on the former/where without the use of your guano, I have made 200 lbs. of sued cotton per acre with it—I will gather this year—which has been one of sqcb drought that cotton will be cut at least one third short on tny place—400 lbs. per acre, aud on the latter, the increase of yield wilt be abont 2 to 1. I am satisfied, that if tne season had been more favorable, the result would have been more manifest. There can bo no question but tnat your“ Manipula ted Guano” is an admirable manure —its cheapness over tlie Peruvian Guano, together with its adapted ness to the production of cotton, will oertainly re commend it to the cotton planters I expect to use ‘ much more liberally on my next jrear’s crop. I am truly yours, A. JONE8. Charleston, OcL 27tb, 1858. John Kettlewell, Esq.; Dear Sir:—In reply to your letter of 14th inst., in which you make the request that 1 should give you “ the results of my experience with your Manipula ted Guano, especially m comparison with tho Peru vian, both as it regards qualify and quantity.” For the last two Years, I have used your No. t Manipulated Guano largely for my fanning purpo ses, and in various experiments to test it with the best Peruvian in quantity and quality. They have been conducted with great minuteness, and iu every instance the Manipulated Guano has nroved superi or to the Peruvian alone—the growth of the plant being moro vigorous, and the product heavier.— This result was more particularly applicable to corn; yet, as to other crops, say barley, oats, Ac., tlie su- priority of the Manipulated was apparent. 1 think t a stronger and a cheaper manure—cheaper, be cause it requires less to the acre, and also on account of difference in price. I therefore use it In prefer ence to Peruvian, on all iny crops. Not planting cotton, I have no personal experience of its effects that plant. Yours, very respectfully. BENj. S. UHBTT. VIRGINIA—TOBACCO. Petersburg, Va., July 14th, 1858, > West Hill Warehouse. $ Messrs. John Rowlett fc Co—Gents: la reply to your inqairy I with p.easnrw state, that sometime in the early part of this year, the Inspec tors at this Warehouse sold for Mr. F. R. Wills, a successful farmer of Prince George's, and a gentle men of high character aud undoubted integrity, two lots of loose tobacco, one of which as stated by him was made on land where Manipulated Guano had been used aud the other where Peruvian Guano bad been used; the former bringing 69j per cwt., the latter only 67. As indicated by the prices there was a very marked difference in the two lots so far as to the quality and character of tho tobacco ; that of the former being heavier and rich ; ol the latter, then, bony, course and poor. In addition, 1 will state, that so far as I tun inform ed, the tobacco grown on land where KettleweU'a Manipulated Guano has been used, is generally of a superior quality, and consequently several of our large tobacco growers are now using this guano on their tobacco crop in preference to other manures.
