for the benefit of themselves and their friends,

Leaving Salisbury on Wednesday morning of
the 14lh, ult., as we did with music sweet and

there,. but a great many more were expected.

Feed Hogs in Warm Weather.
The Journal of Agriculture says that
the pmci ice of taming hogs into the woods
to make their own living till cold weather,
and theu shotting them up aud feeding
them on eorn alone ia a very expensive
way of making pork. To be sure, tke
summer feed costs nothing ; bat then, as
a general fact, the hogs make very little

cause cotton n quiring clean culture tbe
laud is in better tilth, and fewpr furrows
are necessary. The bauds while picking
cotton during the winter will trample
opon the sprigs, and make iL-mq stool out
better therefor. Sheep will winter on
oa's iu a cotton field and never molest the
cotton till they have eaten up the oats.
Where cotton is the exclusive crop,
there is uo little vexation and harrassiug
doubts at harvest time to him who ven
turer to sow small grain. In June the
cotton and eorn need the attention of the
lob.uer constantly. Hence, tbe policy,
almost necessity, of interesting the labor
er in the ownership at least of the oat
crop. A fair contract, in this regard, is
for the employer to furnish the seed, f r
tilixer, and land, and require the employee
to supply the labor of seeding aud bar
versting, and at harvest time divide tbe
crop, oue-fourth to the laborer and three
forths to the employer. An acre of land,
producing twei.ty bushels of oats, would
thus give the laborer five bushels of. oats
