Though the article of rice has been one
of the j staple , products of North .Carolina
ever since; 'its earliest existence, it was not
until vary lately that a general Interest be
ganjto be awakened as to its importance.:
It is now considered that US cultivation
mayprbve more remunerative, than that of
cotton,: the hitherto favorite jtaple of; the
South. sAuudtng to the subject the Monthly
BuQetiti issded by the 'State Department of.
tgriculture .says , "The , crop T presents
- singular .instance; of ..the revolutions
which ; are accomplished by the. break up
of pld's ystems ; of industry and '; the latro
duction of new systems. Before the tern
mloation-of the war, the valley of the Cape
Fear possessed a monopoly of ibis crop in
I this State. That event broke up; the old
system of labor and broke down the calf

pbed it tcould. be ;grpwn only, under; tbe
peculiar conditions tube there found.; But
during- the war v r icej " was furnished as an
article of .food generaiccessiblei to our
people. These circumstances combined led
to general1 experiments in its cultivation,
and rbese experlaisnts proved It could be
grown upon ; lo w'lyicg lands up to the foot
of the 'mountain range. :. The introduction
of upjaud ice gav a : still further impetcs
to its coltivationi; , This ne w industry dew
because under conditions so different from
those existing before has now . becomej an
established and a naost . 'Important one.J It
has become a staple crop in .counties where
aoue wis produced a few years ago.'
