(F, cm the Floridian) IT!o.l* of Call! rating Tobacco iu the 1st. of Ciitin Your nurseries are the first to be attended to in your preperntion for a crap, by selecting ntrtlic proper season a rich and tolerable moist piece of ground, and prepare it by burning « off very clean, and breaking H up. J he see. is then to be sown broad cast upon it. and when they are up, they tire to be overlooked daily, to see that the cut worm docs not commit ravages among the young plants; and as fast as the nl mts arrive at n proper size, they are to be tranafrfSd to the Tobacco field, to maae room or the smaller plants of the l urserv, Aa cas- ualilics often arise to destroy some or the nur- * series’ it is necessary to guard against a proba bility of not having a suffeient number of plants by making three or four nurseries, at an inter val of two or three weeks each. Much atten- f|oo should bo observed to keep both your nur series and field very clean, particularly of grass ami for that reason new lands are prefered .or both. In Cupa they plant on an cyen surface nod distutb it as little as possible with the hoe only picking out the grass or weeds which fprir.g up. The plants, when trairofered to the field, are to be planted in squares, at about from two to three feet apart, according tp the Strength of the land. The high lands liv-Cuoa arc such ns produce the quality of Tobacco, both I.s 10 strength and color, that suits the American market best, and such lands corrcs- pmtd nearest our high hammock, ihe great- ,-m enemy to the plants, both in the nursery and fie ds (while small) is the cut worm, which lins i , be looked after early every morning, and wherever they have eaten the plants, they are ,o he found and killed, either on the plant, or „„ the ground near it. When the plant gets to be larger, then the large green Tobacco worm is to be constantly guarded against, and the suckers also continually broken off as a-t as th' V appear, and when the 1 obacco is judg- <•<1 to be of a sufficient height, it is to be tap ped and allowed to mature for cutting. t he tune of maturity is ascertained by the leaves changing gradually their color, beginning at the bottom leaves, from their deep green grow ing color, to a yellowish green ; but tl this is not sufficiently obvious, mid you deem your 1 o- bacco ripe, you may test it by crushing tooth er the tip of any of the upper leaves, which. « k snaps, is a sign of its being ripe, but on the contrary, if it docs not snap, it is not fully ma tt red. When ripe for the knife it is cut down the ground, h aving two suckers, which week or two prior, ready ice a second crop nrd ai- bi! realized in the same near have bean sparer to grow up ui d prod- so a third crop nriv manner. The Tobacco is to be conveyed carefudv iu wide thongs of cowhide to the house, to be hung up; a shed is preferred with free space for ventilation beneath* andet- ter tying the plants together, two to each string, nn 1 leaving space enough between them to in- Kelt a wo..dei.p- S , you hang them up. bv m- N-ud ng them above each rafter up to the ridge of tl jo house, being careful not to bang them so near that they will touch or crowd each other in diving, or your Tobacco will mould. Also when the weather is moist, you must make small fires enough under it, to keep out the moisture, but no. enough to heat your lobac- co:- Wnen the leaves are perfectly dry, me whole are to be taken down, and placed in a press fora few hours, the object of which is, j<*. the T.dmccoia too dry to strip oil run out breaking the leaves, that they may become soft and pliable, but great care must be taken that it does i ot beat, and it must be strctly ex- n nined, by i isertinglhe hand to ascertain that it becomes not too hot. Tbe press is made by pulling rads or poles crosswise nl each oth er, in form of a rack, and placing cowhide. under, over and m ound the Tobacco, and pla cing upon it-something somewhat weighty.— It is to he stripped lea! by leaf from the stork, and being selected, tbe wrappers from the fi lers, to bo tied at tho butts, and prepared for market. It is sometimes usual to put it again in press alter being stripped. Change of Climates.—Wc believe it was Dr Sherwo d, who a few years ago broached ib* theory that climates change every GG6 yt . R ,- s . lie also announced, if we arc not mis- ta’ on. ihutnnr climate in conformity to l.issys- t. in. would become miWer, while that of Eu rope would become colder, during the present an.I succeeding centuries. Observations on temperature in ibis country and Europe con firm this theory, and go far to convince many persons that it is well founded. Ihe public would no doubt be pleased to know more ol Dr. Sherwood’s theory.— Weekly Sun. The steamboat Si.

Guizot, from cur rent rumor, had protested against the annexa- tion of Texas to the United States, yet such a measure would find no favor with the peop.e ol France: That it was a Governmental act. which, ifitm-ant any thing more than words could never be carried into execution. Of tue truth of these assertions, I am now most tha- roughlv.convinced. Not a day elapses, that have not additional evidence that the Ministry which could have the temerity to espouse the quarrels of England, would be speedily super- ceded.* The protest was intended ny brrat Bri'ain fur » scare-crow, and thus far she could use the Government of France, humiliating as was the spectacle to chivalric and noble mind ed Frenchmen, as a cat’s paw. But let M. Gu zot dare to make tlm annexation oT lexas a cause of war against the United Slates, and ho will find himselfm the midst of a revolu tion of an utterly different character front 'hat which occnrred in Palis in July, 1830. The wounds of deadly hate have pierced too deep in the t osoms of Frenchmen, for them ever to become reconciled to the ‘"Island Giant; and the ou'break of indignation would be perfectly terrific, if the proposition was made to them to fiobt its “battle's. If I could think so disre spectfully of my countrymen, as to believe that they were to be intimidated by threats (proceeding from any quarter,) when engaged in the prosecution of an honorable object, as a stimulus in the case, I would say to them, you have nothing whatever to fear from France; She has sufficient employ mcnl in taking care ofherself. How marvellously strange does it apppar to the disintetested portion of the civilized world, that our country should manifest any hesitation, under the circumstances of accepting the over- Hires of the “lone star." The battle of San Jacinto was as fatally decisive to the hopes of Mexico, as that of York Town was to Great Britain. The independence of the two Re- publics was consummated by these ever memo rable victories. Tne war which has been wa rred against Texas since, can he regarded in no other light, by just minds, than as exclu sively a quasi one; and it is disgraceful to Christian notion* and will darken the page or history Which relates to the age in wkicn we live, that it was not brought to a termination sooner by the intervention of other powens.— An opinion is no where entertained, that Mex ico has had—has now—or ever will have, the ability within herself to subject her former pro- vince. . j / r.v ... The Annexation question is one oj such mag nitude, as to completely involve the future cles- linies of Great Britain. If it should be deci ded adversely to her wishes, she cleirlv fore sees a rival in the Western world, that, in coming lime, will ob-tcurc and cast into per- p. tuafshade, bet real and vaunted, greatness. The extension of territory, and consequent augmentation of population, will not be more withering to her ambitious schemes of aggran dizement <m the American Continent, than the dependent condition in which she will be pla ced for the sletple, from which she deri'ea not only her prosperity, but the very means of suh- siste ce, will be humbling to her pride. If Texas, through her wicked machinations could have been forced into the cruel embraces of Mexico—she laid the flattering “unction to her soot”—that, for a tr.fli* g consideration, she could have become its purchaser, and that ul timately, availing herself .if the weakness of revolutionary Mexico and Spain, she would appropriate the cntiie territory nf the one, and tl.n noecoccinnc of the other, in the West In make durable advances towards that standard ( of greatness by which nations are measured. | The “London Times,” (and when 1 quae j from the “London Times,’ I quote om tie j sentiment of the British reading public, as it .9 more read than all the other journals in ^t> 0 - laud,) in a recent editorial—its leader—-upon | the Presidential election, concludes with ’be . following remarks: , r | “If we, in common with other States ol kir ( mne, are prepared to resist the Annexation o , Texas to the United Slates as an act of ratine, ; calculated to deprive us of a USEFUL ally, to I rEKFETUATE SLAVERY. AND TO CREATE A RIVAL j OT MARITIME POWER IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, j il icnuld he no more than just. to maintain the | independence of Texas against Mexico itself ; and, above all, by a declaration of the prmci- | pal States of Europe to termi-ate this Mate ot I uncertainty and menace. Itad Texas con seated to abolish slavery, all htr political r if- • fercnccs would loi g since have been term mated; and, instead of being an ooject o, mingled con tempt and desire fo the population of the Lai- ; ted States, she Seoul I hove placed her whole , social condition on a higher and more secure itAbis than theirs, and would be prepared to play a conspicuous part in the history of the new world." w Yes, truly, if under British dictation Texas had co- seined to abolish slavery, she would have been “prepared to play a conspicuous partin the history of the new world. liar “political differences,” without any regard to Mexico, would have been at once settled, be cause, as a “useful ally,” Great Britain would have n qix red no higher justification for terminating the war of “uncertainty and me nace.” If Texas will consent toab-dish slave ry, and thus become a “us.ful ally ’ >o G eat Britain, why, she is undoubtedly an indetend ext uetublic ! 11, however, sue wishes to be annexed to the United States, the case is alter ed, according to British notions of justice, and the measure must be resisted as an act of ‘ ratine” upon Mexico. Lord Aberdeen, in his celebrated despatch to Mr. Packenham, ilso supreme the abiding evidence that the law of equal rights the soul of f ree institutions—rules the popular thought. You will find that it is m Text s. Though tbe youngest, she is real imd legitimate sister of tne O <1 I hirtcen, nndhkc them, wdlendiitv much evil b f >n; she will submit to dishonor, rflic w ll not utm the lustre of her Lone Star by either unjust de mands or base concessions, any more than ibe Union would shame her constellation by tak ing undue advantage of its power and influence. 1 am glad to see our honorable and talented friend Ex Mayor Morris, leading the .advance of the republican doctrine of fair equality. It belongs to no party, «ud proves that be can look Uevond present expediency, and k-ep step with the age. He is a man of the people, and* does not believe a blessing loses its value by I becoming universal. Those conservatives who ! expect to regulate the men ol to-day, by coit- veniio -s and observances as a hetd of unen lightened seifs, and who would arrest the pro- rr^s of liberal principles and enlarged vu-ws, by chaining the nation to a narrow and stationa ry poliey, will he left in the distance. Repub licanism is progressive and all embruci g ; and lie who cannot comprehend and share US march, or who would attempt to teach it to make sel fish and unequal exclusions, is an alien to its spirit, and must not hope to govern us councils or direct its operations.

At this time, wnen the minds of tlf Southern people are turned towards manufactmi-g es tablishments, the flowing improvement in cot ton spinning must be peculiarly iuteres-mg, We copy the following information irom tne New York Event g Post : Imptrrtant Improvement in Cotton Spin- jiinrr.—Frances McCully, an American by birth, ancf from his infancy a resident "f the town of Patterson in New Jersey, wheiebe has been engaged in ttie eon*lructioD of machinery, lias recently made an imp >rtant simplification in the proc-ss of spinning cotton.

Cobb, Chappell, Sti’es, and Lumpkin, of the House of Representatives,for valuable public documents. We publish in to-dny’s paper an able letter signed Agricola, from the Richmond Enquirer, and commend it to public attention How creditably does its broad, liberal and American like view s contrast with the petty, selfish, and sectional views of those who nave done all that thev could to def-nt that great national meas. ure, the annexation of Texas. CONGRESS. We have not received our Washington City papers regulaily this week. The Senate nad not up to the latest advices from Washington, acted upon the Texas resolution*, though we have little doubt judgingfrom the toneoflhe pa pers at the scat of Government as trefl ns' from private advices from that quarter,' th'.t the resolutions will pass. Benton and Niles and one at least of the Ohio Senators, with the newly elected Senators from New York will, il is s .id, vote for the Resolutions in their pres ent shape. We are indebted to the Charleston Mercury for the (bllowi g synopsis of the pro ceedings of Congress the past week. “Tne Senate was i ot in Session, Friday and S-ilurdaj’. In tne House the Oregon bid was debated, mtd on Saturday the Committee of tbe Whole voted on ihe amendments and re ported it to the House. O. e of the amend- was discovered to be on fire, Which being of a very combustible nature, as well as the build ings immediately adjacent, the fire spread with <rreut rapidity. In less than an hour nearly the whole block between Main and Company stivet was destroyed. The fiamts rapidly passed to the West side of Main street, and suddenly enveloped all the VV est side in flumes, except the store house of Messrs. Logan and Stone. The new brick ware-house, lately erected by Mr. Wm. T. Hartnett, ns well as the wooden building, was destroyed with d large amount of Co'ton, not 1< ss than 1600 bales.

Bv very great exertions, the Ho tel, at present occupied by M's. McNcel, was saved. A gentle breeze blowing lo the South East earii.d the flames across the street and consumed tne fine new brick edifice, nearly completed, and belonging to Mr. A.

TEXAS—OUR rRIXflPLeS. We extract the following just and inc.gnant rebuke upion the opponents ot annexation, from that old and staunch republican banner the Richmond Enquire!. It expresses the senti ments adopted, provided for not ce to the Brit- j mmts of the u publican P arl > ish G> • of the termination <>f tbe Trea- I try, and we care not whethei that gnat nation nenses with'the use of bands, makes a smaller tro ieabl > ; bui not so if you cho . S e to defy the L „r enables one person to att- ltd Boris 1 Government in t'.e manner propos d in whatever the consequence to other nations.” A r sidence of more titan (wo years abroad has but served t<» increase my admiration ol American institutions. At no period o »n\ life has my love of country oeen so strong as whpn I have witnessed the wanton vitupera tion t<> which it has been subject, d unceasingly, in the columns of the London and other Euro pean papers, within the last few weeks. 1 arti sail feeling, which I entertained to- a limited extent at home, has utterly expired in my bo- ^ som ; and I no longer look upon “every d ti -r- GrCal ence of opinion” ns “difference of prmripte. J We must save the United States., Tins wn duty—an imp rative dny—one above a 1 orir- ers;—and closely identified with i*» >n Tact, t av inn- an immediate hearing upon the result, stands the annexation of Texas. If ever there was a question wliieh should b« decided purely upon its own merits, it assuredly is tins. In ns ad justment, a pariy voice should not be raised, nor a party vote recorded. I he treaty should 1,0 regarded, as I ant sure it will prove, if rat ified, as one making the Americ-n Repub he tbe most independent a. d permanent of Ml the States and fiuti-ms on tr e fice of the globe.

Ou Friday, Mr. Ad ams spoke at length on the .-ubjeet. He said he was ready to say that the terms of the tre - ty with Great Britain, were he-ehy termi aled. He did hot agree that the President should take it upon himself to give this notice. Tliis House was the war power. No act of this House, that ihe had ever as sented t<», or probably ever could consent to, would be given with more pride than that giv ing notice to Great Britain that the treaty of 1827 was terminated. If tins notice was giv en and induing e’se done, we had the prospect of a more immediate and more happy settle ment of this question than we could l>y any oth er meins. This done, there would be a pros pect tif putting an end to negotiations and that the possessions of the other, dies. Then, then indeed, in tbe majesty of power, the chorus to the National Air, “Rule, Brit.mia rule,” would have re-echoed over our heads from her dominions on the North to her dominions on the South, its a tantalizing requi em :o our self-immolation. 1 have sa d that Great Britain has not only her prosperity, but her very existence, in tbe article nf raw cotton. At present slio has no ot her a terna.ive titan to receive her supplies from ttie United States, and hence she sees and feels that sin; is tributary to them. Is it nor natural, apart from thaf monopolizing spirit of dominion which knows and recognizes no high er principle than interest, shat she should be desirous of creating comp -tirio i in cultivation 1 A nd in what qua‘ter. afier tho partial fai ure o effectually as Texas'!

Beach, Esq., Dear Sir— I congratulate you on the re sati.m of your favorite hope. Y-u were among ttie first to enter the list fur the annexa tion of Texas,- and may fairly rejoice on the al most certain success nf that great and Amcii- can movement. Tiie bill lias passed the House of Representatives, in affirm which I have no doubt will be readily accepted by the peopled Texas. Although it contains a restriction which I do not fully approve of myself, yet its general provisions are just to that country, and honorable to the United States I cannot be lieve for a moment, ttiat tbe Senate will attempt to defeat a measure, which Uie nation at latge has so emphatically pronounced upon; and which is so indispensable to its permanent peace and prosperity. „ . The me.-ti g at Tammany Hall last Ft ula>, judging from newspaper reports, was signifi cant. 1 do not recognise it as a party move ment.

Tragic Fnle of Burton in iVIissom-i. A y..ung lady, belonging to a genteel and ,verv proud family in Missouri; was beloved by a young man named Bu to •; but utiffifu* imtely her affection* were fixed upon another, less worthy. He lef' hT with a t -roisued re putation . She was by nature energetic and high spir ted ; her family were proud, and she lived in the midst of a society which considt-r- . d revenge a : virtue, and named it honor.— Misled by ffiis false popular sentiment, and her own excited f clings she resolved to repay her lover’s lidaCaery wirii death. But she kept her secret sh well that no one suspected her purpose; though shd purchased pistols, and practised vwth them daily. Mr. Burton give evidehcb of his strong at tachment by renewing hi-- attentions when tno world looke.l most coUly tipon' Iter; His generous ku dm ss won her bleed)' g heart, but thu sufie-ring influence of love did not lead her to forego the dreadful purpose she had tdr- med. She watched for a favor-ble opportu nity, and shot her b- ttuyer, when no o .e was near to witness the horrible de' d.

As to the Representatives, from the Ninth, they cannot have the least expec tation ot annexing Texas to the Union, on such terms, we cannot believe, consistently with the least respect for their understandings, i If a traitor from the South could be found to vote for it in Congress, there is not a man in T.-xas who would not reject it with indigna tion and scorn.
