drained of the large body of water by wWoh it was

being free from ridges (which are so common to

of fall, by which the rain water can le carried off
by ordinary ditches. A small portion of the land
has been in cultivation about 7 years and those

persons who have seen the crops, regard the land j
as equal in fertility to any they have seen in this j
state or elsewhere. The location is healthy, the '
neighborhood good, and the access to Fayetteville ;
and Wilmington easy by means of a good road li j
miles in length leading directly to the river. Besides
this, it is within 3 miles of a beautiful little village,
upon a high and healthy Bluff, at the river, with a
Store, Ware-house and first rate landing. All which
afford many conveniences to the neighborhood. As
several persons have spoken of purchasing, this is
deemed a proper time to call their attention to the
subject, in as much as there is a crop xow growing
upon a small portion of the land, by which they can
judge of its production. fReasonable terms will
be given to the purchaser.

Word to the Girls.
Girls, you want to get married don't you?
Ah, what a natural thing it is for young
ladies who have such a hankering for the
sterner sex? It is a weakness that woman
has, and for this reason she is called the
weaker sex! Well, if you want to get mar
ried, don t for conscience sake act like fools
about it. Don't go into a fit of the nips
, ll"ltJ Jon see a nat an a pair ot wins-
n m-m-mmw-r i- - 1 1 1 I 1
ivtrio. uuii i gel iue mea into your neaus
i L i. 1 A j in. i t
mui jou must pun yourseit in tue way
of
every young man in the neighborhood, in
order to attract notice; for if you don't run
alter the men, thev will run after
Mark that!
you
A husband hunter is the most detestable
of all young ladies. She is full of starch
and puckers, she puts on so many falsa airs,
and she is so nice, that she apj)ears ridicu
lous in the eyes of every decent person.
She may generally be found at church or
meeting, coming in, of course, about
last one, always at social parties, and
the
jn j
variably takes a front seat at concerts. She
tries to be the belle of the place, and thinks
sue is. x our gin: ion are ntxing
your-
sell lor an old maid, iust as
sure as the
Sabbath conies on Sunday. Men will flirt
with with you, and flatter you, simply be
cause they love to do it, but they have no
more idea of making you a wife than they
have of committing suicide. If I Avere a
young man I would have no more to do
with such fancy women than I would with a
viper.
Now, girls, let Nelly give you a piece of
her advice, and she knows from experience
that if you practice it, you will gain the rep
utation of being worthy girls, and stand a
fair chance of getting respectable husbands.
It is all well enoujrh that you learn to fino-er
the piano, work embroidery, study grammar
&c; but don't neglect to let grandmama or
your mother teach you how to make pies
and puddings, and get a meal of victuals
good enough for a king. No part of a
housekeeper's duties should be neglected;
if you do not marry a wealthy husband,
you will need to know how to do such work;
and if you do, it will be no disadvantage for
you to know how to instruct a servant girl
to do these things as you would ' have them
done.
In the next place don't pretend to be what
you are not. Affectation is the most despi
cable of "accomplishments," and will only
cause sensible people to laugh at you. No
one but a fool will be caught by affection; it
has a transparent skin, easily to be seen
through. Dress plain, but neatly. Be
member that nothing gives a girl so modest
becoming, and lovely an appearance, as a
neat and plain dress. All the mummery
and tinsel-work of the dressmaker and mil
liner are unnecessary. If you are really
handsome, they do not add to your beauty
one particle; if y.ou are homely, they only
make you look worse. Men don't court
your face and jewelry, but your own dear
selves.
Finger rings and folderola may do to look
at, but they add nothing to the value of a
wife all young men know that. If Tou
know how to talk, do it naturally, and not
be so distressingly polite as to spoil all you
say. If your hair is straight, don't put on
the curling-tongs to make people believe it
is hot. If your neck is dark, wear a lace
color, but don't be so foolish as to daub on
paint, thinking that people are so blind as
not to see it; and if your cheeks are not
rosy, don't apply pink saucers, for the de
ception will be detected, and you'll be laugh
ed at.
Finally, girl-, listen to the counsel of your
mothers, and ask their advice in evervthinrr.
Think less of fashion than you do of home
duties less of romance than you do of the
realities of life; and instead of trying to
catch beaux, strive to make yourselves worth
being caught by them.
Common Salt as a Fertilizer.
The "Annual of Scientific Discovery" for
1858 contains the following articles on the
uses of salt for agricultural purposes, which, not
having been republished, to my knowledge, 1
transcribed for your pages:
"Function of Salt Agriculture." Mr. A
B. Northeote has communicated to the Lon
don Philosophical Magazine a paper of experi
ments undertaken to ascertain the rationale of
the action of salt in increasing the fertility of
certain land?. We have not space for details
but quote Mr. Northcote's conclusions: "The
results, then, which we must arrive at are, that
agricultural salt is a most energetic absorbent
of ammonia, botli in virtue of its choloride of
sodium and of its soluble lime-salt, and that
the proportion of thelatter especially most pow
erfully effects its action; but at the same time
its agency does not seem to be altogether a
permanent one; it will collect the ammonia, but
it is questionable whether it can retain it for
any great length of time; because in the very
decompositions which happen in order to ren
der the ammonia more stable, salts are formed
which have a direct tendency to liberate am
monia from its more Oxcd combinations. It
may however, retain it quite lonfe- enough for
agricultural purposes. If the young plauts are
there ready to receive it, its state of gradual
liberation may be for them the most advanta
geous posible; and to this conclusion all exper-
I iments on the large scale appear most obvious
ly to tend. It is described as an excellent
check to the too forcing power of guano; and
from Mr- Barral's experiment, we see that it
either prevents the too rapid erernacausis of
the latter, or stores up the ammonia as it is
tormed. As a manure for growing crops, all
experience and all theoretical considerations
therefore show it to be the most valuable; but
j when employed to mix with manure heaps which
have to-stand for considerable periods of time
theory would pronounce, as practice has in
many cases done, that its power of retaining
ammonia under those circumstances is at the
best doubtful."
This statement is one of interest to our far
mers, and otiht to receive their attention.
There is no doubt that salt is a most valuable
fertilizer. In England, the salt used for agri
cultural purposes amounts to too or three mil
lions of bushels annually . Mr. Johnston has
several times lately alluded to the beneficial
affects of salt upon his farm, in his correspon
dence published in your columns. In the vicin-
ity of the salt works salt is used as a ton-dressing
to a considerable
extent. "Second quality"
of salt, that is damaged or duty salt, is carried
off for this purpose by the wagon load. I have
heard good farmers say that they got two three
uusueis oi uaney ior eacn busitcl oi salt put on
the growing crop when, from six to ten inches
in height. From experiments conducted under
my own observation, I am satisfied thai it is
the best possible preventive for the ravages ef
worms likely to infest any crop the wiro
j worm in corn, for example, and the worms that
attack cabbages and onions in lield cultivation.
Carefully conducted experiments in Great
hrittain shows that salt may be spread upon
land to the extent of sixteen bush Js per acre,
oelore it begins to destroy vegetation much,
hut three bushels per acre is perhaps as laige
au application as ij oidinanly needed.
Jurisdiction in Slava Trade Cases.
We extract the following from the charge)
of Judge Sprague to the Crand Jury of the
M assachusetts Circuit of the United States
Court, as reported in the Boston Journal:
Among the capital cases to be examined
was one known as piracy, usually considered
as robbery on the high seas. In this of
fence, however, Congress lias enacted spec
ial statues, one of which enacts that robbing
a vessel, running away with a vessel, stealing
feloniously from a vessel to the amount of
850, shall bo considered as piracy.
Another special law makes the canning
on of the slave tr ide to be considered as
piracy. In 1794: United States citizens
were forbid to carry on the foreign slave
trade, and in 1S07 the importation of slaves
to the United States was made a capital
offence of this nature. Now, to be cniratred
in tue slave trade, in general, is denomina
ted piracyvand is punished capitally. Ono
such case, he was sorry to say, would como
up before the jury; but as he was not inform
ed as to the particular evidence to bo
brought forward in the case, he should give
no special instruction as to the law to bo
applied to the evidence.
On one point, however, he wished to say
a few words, and these to apply to the ques
tion of jurisdiction. By the constitution of
the United States, all offences a:rainst her
laws, committed within the limits of the coun
try, a"ie to be tried within the State and dis
trict where such offences were committed.
This is provided by the constitution. For
offences committed on the high seas the con
stitution makes no special provision, but
has left it for Congress to enact such laws as
may be deemed proper. On this point sev
eral acts have been passed, one in. 1700,
and another as late as 1835. By the gen
eral provisions of both, it is enacted that,
when a crime is committed on the high seas
the offenders shall be tried in the district in
wTiich they are first apprehended, or into
which they are first brought after the offence
is committed. But from the terms of the
statutes some doubts have arisen as to their
true meaning, and to the true exposition
which should be given them. The one stat
ute contemplates that a party may be found
in a judicial district, and if first apprehended
there, there he is to be tried, and the other
has reference to cases where the party is
brought into the district, and the question
arises, what is the meaning of the term,
"being brought into a districtV"
The true interpretation of the term seem
ed to him without doubt to mean the fir3t
district into which a prisoner is brought af
ter he is apprehended. A sailor may com
mit an offence on board a vessel, and be
taken into a port, and from thence taken to
another port and district, and still be appre
hended and tried in the latter, for it is in the
district in which he is apprehended that ho
must be tried. But there are lavrs of tho
United States which c-ive certain officers of
government the power of apprehension on
the high seas; and a party thus apprehended
must be tried in the district into which he is
first brought. If first brought into the dis
trict of Massachusetts, then he must be tried
there ; if first carried into another district
then it is there that he must be tried.
Under the various slave acts of the United
States, authority is given, and it is made the
special duty, of all officers of , the United
States Navy, to cause crews and vt
ssels
found engaged in the slave trade to be ap
prehended, taken into custody, and brought
to. the United States. Under this authority
it appeared plain to him that a party arrest
ed on the high seas for a violation of the
slave acts, is certainly there apprehended,
within the meaning of the laws, and must be,
tried in the first district of the U. States
into which he is brought.
SrSome precious poet defines beautiful
extract' to be helping a young lady out of a
mud puddle. This is almost as bad as the wit
of Hartley Coleridge, wlio once being asked
which of Wodsworth's productions he consid
ered the prettiest, very proroytly replied, "his
daughter Dora."
The New York Sun says that a few days
since the sheriff sold out the effects of a mer
chant who has been ruined by the purchase of
lottery tickets: He bought for years, but never
gained a prize until a few weeks ago, and the
lottery men refused to pay the only bit he made.
