CULTIVATlOJf OF INDIGO. From a communication in the Nevbern Sen. ilncl, we mike the following extract, relatire to the history of Indigo, it cultivation, &c. This plant (the Indigo fear of the botanist) is a native ot the warm re gions of Asia, Africa, and America. It was first introduced into South Carolina, in the year 1748, by a Mist Lucas, From the period of its intro duction, its culture gradually extended both here and in Georgia until the re solution, when it had become the se cond staple in each of these, then . colonize The. English government encouraged the cultivation of Indigo, "by a considerable bounty. - In a letter written by Oarbe de Marbois to Comte de Vrrgennes, dated Philadelphia, IMarch 13th, 1782 the former says : ThAlsmbtyf:Cir6Uu&iso1b to make levies, of men, and has im- Eosed pretty large sums ; as there is ut little money in the country, the taxes wilt be gathered in Indigo," Stc. In North - Carolina, too, this article ivas prepared for matket-before and sce iherrevolution'l "persons now living whb"rernemher (o have seen Indign fields of twenty acres in Nenbern District. At this time our god house-wives are in the haMt of making Indigo for domestic purposes, much in the same way our tirmers made cotton previous to 81 8-19, Subsequently to the revolu '&a, the Indigo cCrtttrre from variot causes, declined in tct bauUerjitatM. Am'oigheac causes may ce enumcra- ted the emigration ot joaicious ana rr,erienced Dbntcrs to British India, the patronage of the British Govern. ment in Us cultivation mere, nu mo introduction of cotton here, just as this country was rising from the deso lation of war. Whether the time is not near at hand for the South to return to Indigo,1 is a question demanding the serious invesiieation of every one Interested in Us agricultural prosperity. Our Inidn-o at present U generally in- ferior- to the, ituported.Bnt we have hifrh authority for saving, that this is obrwipgW"iwrHect fn ou aoil or exoerienctd dealer of New York says 44 1 know that prime Indigo can be made in the Southern States, -having during rpertod of - thirty yews, bought several amall lots made in South Caro Irrra; tndthe-MWsisippiotxclleBt quality. It is true-, the general run of the iodigo is of an inferior quality f but this deficiency most be attributed to the want of skilful manufacturers j for if one or two lots be made good, the whole raiy be, provided the condition! necessary to make a perfect article, be observed." An eminent agricultural ist of Georgia, says 44 13 ut the time has arrived for our return to the; cul ture of Indigo, and it will be soon seen that we can drive competitors out of the market as easily in Indigo, as we have done in cotton with one only precaution, that we . use pure wa ter in extracting the coloring 'matter from the plant, I now look, back to the recollections of my youth with as- tdhlshmmt," wfttri 1 -it mraher: having seen - the contents -dtrtupuddkt pumped into the vats, &c. -ti . If then, we can make Indigo, equal to the imported, pf which . there seems to be Tittle doubt, the latter must be excluded from our market, whenever the home supply shall satisfy the home demand. The foreign cannot -compete with the domestic under the dis advantages of a duty which in a few years Will be 50 cents per pound, in surance, Ireight, commissions, sc. Let it be here remarked, that the t.x on foreign indigo, is the only item in the Tariff Bill designed for the bene fit of the South, and for this, it appears from the newspapers, that we are in debted to Mr. Senator Benton, of Missouri, a. native oT our state, to whom we- should leel . grateful for.his kind intentions, whatever may br its effect.. To return, hoevr, to our subject it is thought by many that the preparation of Indigo is an unhealthy employment. This unhealthiness is said to be owing to the rapid absorp- tion of vital air, which takes place xlur- ing the oxidizement of the tinetnt matter, &c. So great is this absorp. tion, that a lighted candle will not bum near the surface of the liquor. But it is aid to be practicable by cheap and, simple machinery, to enable the the vats, and out ol the region of this impure air, which would completely remove the objection of unheahhiness. For prime indigo we shall always find s ready and profitable market at home The annual domestic demand is sup posed at present, to amount to from 5 to 6 millions of dollars j and owiog to the great increase of our manufactures it is said to be probable, that in ten years this demand will be doubled. This sum added to the annual income of the sonth will greatly enhance its wealthy and prosperity." Let us then prepare ourselves to enter on the culti vation of this valuable and neglected plant, as soon as the high duty goes into operation, if not before, un less some more lucrative employment should offer. c.

This raited Mr. Derbigny birh in the t-ttimation of, his fellow-citixem , anj . among hia warmett tuppvrtert at the late elec tion, were many friendt of CenV JtclapnT " They " could not think thtt r inuring the eaute of the CeneriL Lr tiiliUp Ii" the rlmlnn n- m.

He wa accordingly voted fur by numbers of Jackaon men, who un. der other circumetances would have bern found in favor of Mr. Iingttoo. And again: Mr. Livingston'a absence from the state caused the estrangement of many of his friends. 1 will not now positively assert, Ahat the 1st congret tinnal district is in favor of Gen.

Jack; the party oppoaed to him-ad-mit this.

Again : I Intra this election did not, n all tbfl par'uhes, turn on party grounds t for many of the friends of Jackaon voted for the administn tion candidates. And besides this, I will, in conclusion, remark, that in all Mr. Gurleys con. gressional district there waa but one administra tion member of assembly elected..-. and he front the parish of East lUton Rouee, a decidedly Jackson parish. " From this it re conclusive that. . that diftlrict is strong for Jackaon : and it is rroof thatr even slMwW thC: amidst rtwn bo strongest in the other two congressional li-:" tricts, the Jackson majority in this ia sufficient to counterbalance their superiority. -"' I am therefore satisfied, in my own mind, that the five electoral votes of Louisiana will be given to Jackson.
