SEPTRMBKB 29, isJwT McC lellak’s I’RospRt-Ts—We are indebtod to our friend ('apt. J. W. Stranjre, now stationed on the Biackwater, for a copy of the New York WorM of the 19th inst. More than 21 columns of it, in •umll typCj are devoted to a depcription of im- naeuse McClellan ratidcation meeting, qf series of ineetings, that took place at Union 8q ’arp on the lith. The World claims that there %»ere lUO.OOO p^’ople pr *8eDt. and that they yrere ei'thu-iaptio in their dttermifmtiofl to elect Mct.’lellan. Meetings were organized at ten different stiinds around the Sqnarc, and speeches were bemp delivered ut iili of them at the same time. 68 McCleilau dijhs, from t_he didt'rent W ards of the city and the surroundinsr towns and villages, joiDcJ the grnnd procession, onl- haui with batinefs and lights.

There appears to be more of vitality in hia party than ^'e L;ui f'upposed. Bat then‘ is one view which may decidediv coh>- plicati' % election. I’he theory orth« Uhlted'state^ 18 that tWre are stitl or 40 States, as the ca.se may be, in tat Union. It requires a majority of ah the votes of all the States, to elect*. Now suppose all ihei>tates, including i^-e ('onfed»rate States, be entitled to .5»H) votes. Lincoln mnst receive l.^G to elect him. He Must get these 156 rotes in the Lnited States. Kve-y (.’oafederate State that fails to vote in the election, is. in effect, equivalent to a vote for-McOlellan, and therefore, if ne thould ac tually receive some TO or 75 votes, though he till not of course be elected, neither will-Lincoln b*e. Aud the same result may happen iu the jiouse of licpre- s^tativee, into which the election would then be thrown LincMn must there get a majority of all the .Sut^. aud it will not do for him to say that the Confederate States are not par^of ihe Uuiied States. It is said that the New if oik Trioune concedes that ilcClelian will carry tive or six Stafes iu the Elec- loral colleges. So wc uray yet hope for trouble to the yankees from the election. Though we may cart* but little whether acoln or McClellan be citcted, we ',io care, and are very deeply interested, mat they get into another revoludon iu consequence. —There are neany a nundred thousand occupying the grievous position of prisoatrs of \»:*r—ne»ny 60.000 on each side.

Many inquiries have fl?ei^TOde of me in regard to ilie Cuinese Sugar Caue auU its treatment; allow me to repiy through your paper. First, as to its poisoning cattle: M.y opiuion i» that the cause is similar to a theory which I h.tve in pri vate expressed as to the cauie of tne lanaous Milk .Sick, it is a noted tact, iu our mountains at least, ihatlf cat Lie are kept up uutil the dew dries off from the grcea forage and diiveu in before the dew falls inlhe evening, taat ihe^- never eutfcr fiom this sick- ue.ss. ilcuce 1 urew the idea that it was caused by some poisoauua exhalation waich comoining either with tiic Hydrogen oi tne dew or wnth some of tue cut micai eiemeats of tue plants—perhaps botli lonned as loug ai tao dew lasted a poison— •luiiiar to Hydiocyanio (PrasBicj Acid or some oi its coaibiuauou.-. .^t anv ratA: I am. ^i>ruied •'! .1 7itfrisii tree on OUT Oionntam even of our coaimon wild Cherry wuen wet with dew are d.-adly poisoa, but when dry iiom the sun are uarmlesa. I'ne similar theory 1 nave in relation to tne sjoighum is that us poisonous qualities, if it has any, are due to » similar coitjomatioa of its acid witn soaie other cuemical constituent with the dew, and tuat the reason ot its being more injurious to cattie m certain sections—swampy regions for instance—is because the dews are heavier ana more fully laden' with the hurtful gascs in tnose sections. Tnis is theory it is true but theory drawn from observation. I’neu too fiome may puil it with dew on, others in tne middle of the day. Tueu agaia that caue grown on* high sanay'iaud is not-so apt t»poiaou as tuat grown ou ricn swamp or low laad. ;Some think tlie cause IS from the horous matter accumuiatiug in. the sto mach and, oeing hard aud indigestible, tnus tijls me passages aad produces dcata. i do uot liunk auy oue nas proved thi3 oy openmg tne stomacu of an auimal, uead from eating the bugar Caue; and if it were so the same result would occur lu oue section as wed as in anot^r. vS'ueecas a geutleman «t bampsou says his uaiiie died trom eating the ciiagar Cane, whiie geutlcmeu from Kichmond aud ^(obeson bay ta»ir catile live ou it. i am ia^ witn these ideas oui/ luey may serve some oue, wuo has tne abiUty, for t'oandauoas on wnich to base experiments Uext year. M.y opinion is that sugar cannot be made to any profit, from the riorgaum. The only part of the caue wbvcp. Will make -sugar is tuat waiuu has a red heart, and iL It IS jdoaired to make sugar tne butts up to uear ’'Vue.e tue red ueart ceoseii must be cut oH at^fi 'I'ouDi for that purpose, dome varieties have no red tieart. Tne ^vperiinjuts waich i have made show that it IS very nard i^tr tne caue to get too ripe, aad if kept or d.;v.-i.'al ua}s altei' rut Will yield less juice out aiore ’ ?yrup, iu«i if cut and imaiediately pi'esseJ. Ihe Setcchi^riue lUattcr does not evaporate, it loses ouiy the waLeiy Akcid. The gam is; saving of time la pr^-^siag aud boi/ing. Tnus: instead oi maKing io «:aiioao ol s^i up from 100 gallons of juice you maiO besidea. tne syrup is better. A.§;ain, liLer taiorougu eipdriments I found tne su rest way of maiiu^ gv^d syrup to be uot to use any soda or iime. x tkjaed the juiCe aown to say oue- nalf aad thea aduu i two or taroe buckets of j;ood spring water, boUdd down again and if thuughc ne- ceasary added uiwre waiter lad tneu ooiled it to a syrup. If tne soda Or other aiiiali ia added at the proper time—when tue acid matter is far lu the mi- a- ruy it may do good, out if added at auy Ume wnen Uie acia uas th€; preponde.'aace it la almost certam to Rire the syrap that quality which blackens the ,eeih. Tii3 great secret, though, is in having tue caue ^ully ripe, j^till i tluuK uuiess under very care- tul mauagenieat tnak sodu had best not be uaed. Jiy opiuiou 13 that high sandy land fairly manured produces the caue froui wtiicu to make the best syrup.
