CANE FIBRE M A NT EAc'TURE.
In n recent Issue iif the Tfixpnlch i- '. was
noticed that the Choate farm, near Norfolk
a., had been sold i,, a ,arV ,,t- t;,.lI).,ll,Ji
and thjit an estaldishmeul of what is known
as the American Fibre Company was to be
erected thereon f',,r the purpose of blowing
the cane which abounds in the southern
j South on tin- prosj.ect of tl is new mauufiic
' ture, of which it will become the seat. The
I cane, from which the fibre can Iw made in
I any ipmutity required by the wants of the
j world, js the spontaneous growth of the
swamps and lowlands of the Southern
; States. The patentees of that product, to
be known very extensively hereafter in com-
inerce as tlie enue H ie, lave senuiva.oy
their intents the monopoly of both the arti
cle itself and the peculiar profess of its man
ufacture. They have made up their minds
t iat it will be most profitable to them to
set up their works at Norfolk and Richmond
aud Baltimore, and probably Petersburg, and
to go into the business to an extent that
know no limit but the demand. It is there
fore a business that will soon amount to
tweuty. fifty, or a hundred millions of dol
lars per annum. The patentees are solid
men, and intend to keep control of the whole
affair themselves, by their agents, but pos
sibly allowing some of the manufacturing of
the articles from fibre to he done by persons
engaging to pay n royalty.
"No doubt that in the cities of the North
as now r.t St. Louis, factories for .making all
manner of articles will be established; but
the southern States can add to their cotton
staple another new article of commerce
which bids fair to be only semd to it. and
not unworthy jof such a distinguished asso
ciate. Cheap fibre cheaper than cotton.

the age And came is tlie mo-t anumlHrn.

ly been discovered that the cane can be re

cases a ton of fibre costs less than a ton of

HOW TO MAKE GOOD FARMERS.
Tills subject has often been discussed. Vari
ous . .pinion- have been offered, some of which
are very good, others quite inferior, I propone
to make a few suggestions for the benefit of the
readers of the Rural.
There are thousands of farmers in the world
who Hunk iiotlimn; I .ii t physical strength is re-
'I'ii , in noon lunucrs. vt iin sucli men
farming is neither more nor less than simple
..ii-e iiruugvry, anu yel mere is no human pur
suit so intimately connected with every depart
ment of science. It is thi, erroneous and most
pernicious impression which hits degraded agri
cultural punuiu in the estimation of so manv,
and has driven thousand of intelligent ami pro

"Ul i-u-ineni are supposed to he born such. We
very seldom mm a man, whatever his early ed
ucation may have been, who docs not feel bim-
sen perfectly competent to manage a farm. It
requires years of i.repariitory stud v to fit a voung
man for uny of wjiat arc denominated the learn
ed professions. To become a lawyer, a phvsi
eian or a clergyman, he miist devote four or five
vcars in the colleges, passing over bis books and
listening to lectures. All this is well
In fact it is indispensary mwssarv ; butanvthing
in the sliape of ahumau being, who lias sufficient
physical strength to enable him to hold a plane,
wield a scythe,, or harness a horse, is. considered
enough for a farmer. Why is this? Can it be
supposed when rigidly considered, that such men
without mental culture, can make "the princi
ples and discoveries of some of the most on.l'oiiml
and complex of human sciences, bear upon ihe
diversified and multitudinous nracliees ,,1' suri-
cdlture r I would not oe understood as sup
IMisiug this applies to all fanners. Fortunately
for our country, theie are, among the cultivators
of the soil, a very large number of very sensible
and intelligent men who would honor any pro
fession. My remarks arc designed to have ref
erence only to the too generally prevalent opin
ion that agricultural pursuits" demand nought
but broad shoulders and strong arms.
This error, I am glad to know, is now being
rapidly dissipated. For this blessing, we owe a
cultural teaching is beginmng to assume its
imt i. lace iii our institution of learning.
Mem are awakening lo ihe met thai au iulelli-
gtnt mind is a far betlir director or a strong
arm than a mind upon which the light of edu
cation has nut shed its beneficent rays. They
are beginning to appreciate the great importance
ol familiarizing themselves with the science of
agriculture a. well as with the mere art, for it
i. a si lence. 1 hey are lieginning to realize uie
necessity of understaiidihg the "prim rples which
underlie the. sagpfe as well as the practice,
These are enP'ing truths. It gives bright
hopes for the future of our country. It is lo be
hoped lliat the day is not very far distant whin
all our farming inu rc.is will be greatly improv
ed. Wc may yet possibly see the time when ev
ery department of the science will be sfliciently
understood and the necessity of each being suf
ficiently studied to make all our farmers better
n.'quainted with the biisiuess so that it may lie
conducted with infinitely more east, and success.
lAt the" importance of respecting the science and
make it a study, then, be encouraged. The good
work has begun. By all means let it be pressed
vigorously on. To every farmer I would urge
the vast importance of making handsome out
lavs of their means in order to provide their
cliildren.with the necessary books and means of
instruction to store their minds with valuable
n.rrieiiltural information. If this course was
pursued farmers' sons would become intelli
agriculturalis-ts aud useful citizens. Far:

on thav flourish it is- nteessary that it should
strike its roots down-through the sand thirty leet
to reach permanent molsjUire. This it does, and
grows in great luxuriance where all elseisshriv
elled and part lied bv heat. But this is not all.
If it were simply a huge melon, with smooth
and delicate skin, every one would be destroyed
by wild beasts before half matured. To prevent
this, Nature has armed its outer rind with a cov
ering of long, sharp terrible thorns, which so la
cerate the mouths and noses of animals that they
are glad to leave them alone in all their tempt
ing freshness. Man, with his hands and sharp
knives, finds little diflicidty in opening the lus
cious fruit. The natives have no necessity for
putting fences about their melon patches, r
the plants are self-protective.
The Episcopal Church in Irkj-and
The most important religious news we have re
ceived from England for a long time is the an
nouncement that the Irish bishops (we presume
of course) of the Protestant Episcopal Church,
although it is not so expressed, have resolved
that a general synod shall assenibly at an earlv
day, in which the laity as weU as the clergy shall
be' represented, and also to convene ihe provin
cial synods to consider local changes liM-essary
to Is? "made in the church. This will be the first
mectimr of a svnod of the English church in the
.British jftles in. w J u i;h -lay rc( n e.-i uta i ii n j J ui s c y 1 1
obtaiiHsJ reeof niti. n. So long as the church was
an establishment connected with the government,
Parliament and the Queen retained in their own
hands the entire power lo regulate its affairs.
T"he bishops were members of theHouse of
Beers for that reason ; but with the disestablish
mcnt of the church in Ireland and the cessation
of the right of Irish bishops to seats in the
House, the church in Ireland resumes its right
to self-government, and therefore its synods will
he imnortant bodies. The form of government
for the church in Ireland has yet, to be uro-
vided, and this is the principal object for which

AMEBICAN BIBLE SOCIETJ.

TtldivERY ClTtZKS OF XoUTH CaBOLIXA.
XUMgnericaii Bible Society was instituted for
tlushlnnle imi...-cof increasing the circulation
of the Holv Scriptures without note or comment.
Since its organization in 1810 it has sent out
more than twenty-five millions of comes ot tne
Scriptures in out, own country and in other
lands. Its facilities for carrying out its sole ob
jectthe circulation of God's word are greater
now than ever before.
The Society desires to place a copy of tlie
Holv Scriptures in the hands of every family.
To those able to pav for it we sell at cost, and
give to those unable to pay.
This i the. work to be done in North Caroli
na. Every family in the State idronht'have a
copy of the Scriptures. We call upon every be
liever in the Bible every lover oi tJod every
disciple of Jesus every friend of man every
patriot every one who desires the prosperity of
his country one and ah to aid us m this work.
The American Bible Society has acted nobly,
generously in these trying times. Rising above
il,.. oiiMirn and nreiudiee of the hour it has
sent to our impoverished South hundreds and
thousands of Bibles and Testaments as a dona
tion, ami in this and other ways aided to the
amount of three hundred thousand dollars.
Shall we not show our appreciation of such a
course by a cordial -co-operation ia increasing
the circulation of the Scriptures, and contribu
ting to its funds according to our ability? Let
us all rally to the rescue and do what we can iu
this glorious cause. i
God hath spoken to man. He hath uttered
his will. He hath made known to us his name
mid nature his irreatness and his goodness his
might snd his mercy. .. He hath pointed out the
own remedy for the evil of society. U.Hhihg

remedy the evils that now afflict us. Lei us put
