IMl'OKTANT TO COTTON t'LiNTEUS.
We ate happy lo have it in our power
to state, that Jas. A, Buchanan, Ya. of
this city, has. imported, through llic me
dium of our worthy Consul at the Isle d
I'raticci Martin llickham, F-sq. a bag of
cotton seed, upecially picked and prepar
ed for tlio purpose by a planter of hih
staiidiuj;, in that colony, who has kindly
furnished some interesting remarks upon
the nissi improved pltt tif cultivating it.
Wc utitleratand this seed i- dcpostied at
the store of the Warren Factor., No. 3,
1 1 jiiover-sti ttt, where all applications, ci
ther by letter or otherwise, for tsinal! quan
tities, will be graitiitously attended to
while it lasts. Ve hope the disttibutioti
trf this truly valuable aeeil will be judi
ciously made by Mr. I5urhai.an, for it is
well Known, tliat the cotton of the Isle of
Fi ance is superioi lo any in the woild,
with the exception of our very best long
staple Sea Islands. It behoves our most
active planters to follow up this attempt
to introduce a new desctiption of t ottoti
into our country,, and we entertain the
most sanguine l.oprs.'.hat the issue oflhcse
exertions may realize the expectations of i
the KeiitiiUian with whom they origina
ted. We shall of course expect all thoc
who may receive any of this seed, with a
view to make trial of it. to give us, from

CULTIVATION OF COTTON AT THE MAU
It is plante.' heie in trie months of No
vember and December (our spring,) tnd
the trees last three or four years; after
the first year they are cut off nearly even
with the earth, and they shoot up sain to
neatly their usual height, when it is ne
cessary to turn off their tops, and keep
tbeiii id the height of about four feet and
a half. 1 hey are planted in rich ground
a 7 and 8 feet distance, one from the oth-
cr; ant! in poor ground, at about 5 feet
distance) only two plants are left in the
same hole, and the seeds are planted
..bout one inch under ground ; it is neces
sary to keep the f.elJ very dean, and clear
of weeds, and let the cotton be pcrfcctlv
c'ry -before it is collected : the plants ought
to bo heed, and their toots well' covered
when wunLr. After the cotton is collec
ted, it is passed llifou jh a mill, and clean
d by means of cylinders, after which it
is picked l v l.;l)rf, and frrcd of all dirt,
and impuiitics, then sent to the press to

To J. S. Skinner, Kditor Am. Far m,
l'rorn the Albany Daily Advertiser,

On the farm of Isr. e' l-oomis, sen. iy
the town of Wanrn. Herkimer cotn;tyi
N. V. about 65 miles west of Alb.mv , 1 1
miles souUt of the can.il, and half milo
north of the third great western mi i.,'uo
road, is a small spring or run of w-if r,
which, to all appearance, necr ahf is in
(uniitity, either in wet weather or in dry.
The watci is prtfectly soft and is consid
ered the best jn the region.
Now to the phenomenon, Always, in
variably, befote a north east storm, this
spring becomes turbid. I hi mu.uliiiess
commences about 24 hours uelore tbo
storm, and continues from 4 to 10 hours,
affording to the power of the storm wttit Ii
is coming : this invari .bly takes plce
ptevious to the north eai storm, and at
no other time. Previous to a moderate
storm, however, this ntudcliness of tho
water does not continue more than two
hours, and then runs clear again. ' I here
can be no pos.iblc error in this statement.
The w ater is now conducted in aijutdu. ts,
and the spring is coveted, so that no pos.
sible external cause could prouure this
effect. I hiive now sta'ed ficls as they
are. I be respcr table agt-cl people who
have used the waters of the spring more
than CO ets, tell me that thev can pre
dict a north east storm r.s certainly as they
can the nsingor setting of the sun ; ant! that
when ti c weather is prrfcc:ly mild, and
the wind in the south or in the esi. and
no prrc eptihle signs of any storm at h-nd,
still, if their spring becomes muddv, they
are prrfecilv sure tint north-east storm
will commence within 24 hour.
This spring is situated the north foot
of a small hill, which is ihe most north
