a practical Boot-maker of some ex-

time been sensible that there is a
desideratum to be yet supplied to tne public in the way
of a suitable burnish for boots and shoes. Mo.-t of the
articles now used either injure the leather or fall to
impart that lustre so necessary to give toman's ..
dtrxlandimr " a proper finish. He haj therefore, dur
ing the hist twelve months, been devoting himself to
the task of preparing an article free from these objec
tions, and has at length after much investigation and
experiment completely succeeded. The result is (Ji's
tie p.'u.t ultra Lurniyi." He only wishes that it
may be tested in order to establish its superiority
over all others. Call on him at his shop opposite Mr
Lauder's Marble Factory, Hay street, and be supplied

pork, &c, from the west and north, bear wit-
ness to our deficiency, while the lands themselves
present equal evidence that a destructive and
unnatural system has robbed them of their
powers of production. These are some of the
consequences of a system which makes us look
upou all grass as a pest; and mted of giving
it a proper place among our crops, and with
skill and judgment directing the effort of na
ture to cover and protect our soils with grass,
we spend an immensity of labor in counteract
ing them, although we know that nature's own
process for improvement of the soil is bv the
growth and decay of vegetable matter upon it,
and that nothing can better perform this ofhee
than the grasses. We know that no agricul
ture can he complete without a good rotation
of crops; no rotation can be complete without
the grasses; and no country can be well and
cheaply supplied with stock animals without
grasses for soiling and grazing. An old French
song expresses nearly the same ideas :
"Cultivate little but cultivate well
Your crops alternate if good produce you'd soil.
Your soil manure often : the return it will yield,
Will tenfold repay what you spend on the held.
Sow grass too. at times, if you wish to make sure
Of having a plentiful stock of manure :
Without grass you've no cattle, without cattle His
You'll have no manure; and without that no grain.
Thus the grasses, whether as a part of a judicious
rotation or as a source of forage, are indispensa
ble to every kind of agriculture civilized or
savage. We have among us no system of rota
tion, good or bad; but as a substitute, we some
times rest our lands as we call it; that is, let
it lie one year in weeds; and every one knows
their growth and decay on the land produce a
happy effect. Now very few reflect that these
weeds are just as much tt crop as any other, ana
a pestiferous crop at that; and if taken off.
would be as exhausting: or more so, than many
crops we value much higher. Why not ther.
substitute for the weed crop, one of peas,
clover, grasses, Ac, and so institute a just ana
true rotation of cleansing crops, instead of pes
tiferous weeds and brambles? ,
, Tl plpjK.,is a mighty instrument so is the
sword and an indiscriminate use of either must
make sad havoc. From a general view oi dif
ferent latitudes and their productions, we are
fodtleed to think that the plow, like the sword,
is much oftener applied to improper uses than
we of this age are apt to suppose. From the
equator to more than half the temperate zones,
production and decay are very rapid, heat in
tense, rains heavy, summers long, and evapora
tion great. It is natural to suppose that these
phenomena mnt make all summer culture far
more destructive to tlie soils of southern, than
to those of higher northern latitudes, where thev
do not exert the same power, where evapora
tion is slow, winters long aud summers short.
This again would induce us to suppose tha i
permanent crops as orchards- small graii.,
and grasses, &c, requiring but little summer !
culture, are especially adapted to southern soils,
wlule the reverse would seem more appropriate
to northern latitudes. We have no doubt,
these inferences" are just: That for all soils
permanent crops are best, because more in ac
cordance with nature, that northern soils with
stand summer culture best, and that the further
south we go (towards the equator) the less
summer culture the soil should have. Yet, it
is notorious, that present usage is just the re
versethe small grain grass and stock regions,
are mostly to the north of us, requiring but lit
tle summer culture, while all our crops at the
south, demand the constant harrassing opera
tion of the plow and hoe, exposing the soil to the
scorching suns of suhimef, and heavy rains of
winter. The whole process is unnatural, and no
doubt impoverishes the soil as much as the
crops which afe removed from it. Look at our
broad plantations in April and May- where is
the carpet of green, which the eye expects to
hnd on the hclds in these balmy mouths of spring.

these summer crops and Fummer culture

but they could be placed in a more natnral sys
tem, with a rotation embracing a proper scries
of permanent crops, which aid in giving such
fertility to the soil, that one acre world yield

But it is not only in military chieftains that f
strong will is "a jewel of great price." Nations
and individuals will, and this alike in large un
dertakings and in small. It was the determin
ed will of our forefathers to Which wc are prin
cipally indebted for our freedom.
For the first few years after the Declaration
of Independence we lost most of tbe battles
that were fought; New York and Philadelphia
were successively captured by the foe; South
Carolina fell; New Jersey was practically re
aniiexed to England; almost everything went
against us. Had the American people been
feeble and hesitating, all would have been lost.
But they resolved to conquer or die. Though
their cities were taken, their fields ravished, and
their captured soldiers incarcerated in hideous
prison-ships, they still maintained the struggle,
making the pilgrimage of freedom, if we may
speak in metaphor, literally with naked feet,
which bled at every step. Had our fathers
been incapable at Valley Forge, had they
shrunk from the storm-beaten inarch on Tren
ton, we should never have been an independent
nation. There arc people in the Old World to
.lay full of genius as well as of enthusiasm for
liberty, who yet cannot achieve freedom, princi
pally, perhaps, beeause they Want the indomi
table will to walk the bloody pilgrimage.
To the individual a strong will is as necessary
as to the nation. Even intellect is secondary"
in importance to will, A vacillating man, no
matter what his abilities, is invariably pushed
aside, in the race of life, by the man of deter
mination. It is he who .resolves to succeed,
wto begins resolutely 'again at . every fresh rn
buff, that reaches the goal, Tbe shores of for
tune are covered with the stranded Wrecks of
brilliant men, who have Wanted energy, and
therefore courage and faith, and have plrished
in sight of more resolute, but Jess capable ad
venturers, who succeed in making port. In fact
talent without will is like steam dissipating
itself in the atmosphere, while abilities controll
ed by energy are the same steam brought under
subjection as a motive power. Or will is the
rudder that steers the ship, which, whether a
fast-sailing clipper or a slow aver-haro-e, is
worthless without it. Talent, asrain. is I.Tit'f
sail will is what drives it. The inan with
will is the one that pulls the strings and catches
the dupes. Young men, starting out in life,
have a will of your own! If you do not, you
will be ruined. If 3011 do, you will succeed.
even though your abilities be moderate. l'hil

We learn that the part of this Road west of
the Great Pee Dee, was completed last week,
so that the cars now run np the river. The
Eastern end of the Road is also finished to
within three miles of the Great Pee Dee. We
are also pleased to announce that the cylinders
at the Great Pee Dee Bridge are all sunk, and
rest on a firm clay foundation, from sixteen to
eighteen feet below the bed of the river, so that
hereafter the construction of the bridge may
proceed without impediment or delay.- Marie

j of which varies, but never exceeds 100 yards.

for the famous pillar into which Lot's wife wa.v
transformed. All the disconnected masses, and
those which still adhere to the mountain, have
their surfaces deeply furrowed and indented by
the rains. And lastly, wherever the rock leans
over, its lower part is hung with stalatitics of
salt. Is it possible foexplain the death of Lot's
wife? Iam inclined to believe so, and , this
would be my solution; At the moment when
the huge mountain was feeaved up volcadieaHV,
there must have been throughout its whole ex
tent tremendous falls of detaehed masses, similar
to those we have observed at every step.
