S h o u l
Tins one of the plroblt -ma
dillicult for farmers to set

writers fvllowmp in t heir wake do

what is best at the north is also
best at the south. Climat ie differ
ences between the two localities
are great, and c mnot be ignored.
Two aspects of the matter demand
attention. First, equalizing woi k,
not crow ing it too much in spring.
Second, effects upon condition and
productiveness id' the soil itself.
A t t he iht; h spi ing oieti !,f e : the

' soon as possible
alter it gets in

' lie growing seaon
sible. Hein e, a lare amount of
work has to be crowded into a lew
weeks. Any portion of it. there
fore, which can be done in the fall
:s a great relief to the northern
firmer. It gives him more time in
the spring enab.es him to start off
his crop earlier. This may fully
offset some objection to tail plow
ing. But the case is diffeient with
the southern farmer. He can pre- :
pare his I uid more or less all
through the winter. I; s seldom
covered with snow and o ilv oc
casionally locked up in lee. So.
with the southern lainier, the mat
ter turns entirely upon the com
parative effects of fail and spring
plowing upon the mechanical con
dition and productiveness of the
soil. As a rule, tall plowing bene
tits land in cold climates. The up
turned furrow flice becomes frozen 1
the entire depth, and when it
I thaws, is left mo.-t t hoi oughly pul
verized more thoroughly than ,
; plow and roller and harrow can
make it. This migh. and dOe
.-ornetimes, taky place in a south
ern climate, but with this difference.
At the north the thawing occurs
late in the spring, and just when
the farmer is ready to plant hi.
i seed aud begin the working of hi.
i Crop. At the south the thawing
j may take place at any time; the
soil is icelocked seldom longer thau
a week or t wo at a i lme. And what
is more, these Ireezes alternate
usually ;as spring approaches) with
heavy rams, which beat down and
pack the loosened earth again. The
.-oil at the south is, as a rule, ipuite
devoid ot' vegetable matter, aud
hence easil packed that of the
north is tided wfrh vegetable mat
ter and less affected by raius.
Viewed from any p inf. fall j.dow
ing does no harm at the north; it
generally does good. Vere con
ditions the same a" the sou'h, we
should unhesitatingly advocate fall
plowing here abo. November aud
December are comparatively leisure
months. Plow stcck is not bus
aud plow hands are available. The
weather is pleasant aud generalls
ground is ui tine plowing con
dition. The subsoil is still com
paratively dry. Towards spring it
is apt to be wet, even when the
surface soil is dry enough for the
plow aud much harm is olteu done
by overlooking this fact. But these
advantages tire more than offset,
generalls speaking, by the evil
effects of our copious winter raius.
These beat down, pack aud run
together a lreshly plowed soil, until
it becomes harder and more dis
posed to break up in clod, than
laud which has not been plowed
since the crop, of the preceding
summer were laid by. Why this is
so, is not apparent, but that it is
a fact no observant farmer will de
ny, it is more marteu in old
j mds ,ban -Q ,resh iu tho
desjtitute of vegetable matter, than
those abounding in it. Hence,
freh ,an(1 caa by piowed in the
(-tl, wuh gre.lter irapUuitv thau old.
r , u b f
saying ttiat mue-tentus ot the
troubles of our southern farmers
come directly or indirectly from
the absence of humus in the soil,
j Another objection to fall plowing
, at the south controuts us when we
I consider its effects upon the vego
I table matter on the land, such as
weeds, grass, stubble, etc. Iu our
, mild climate vegetable matter
i buried in the soil during the fall
months undergoes more or less de
composition till through the winter,
and a pait of the resulting soluble
compounds are liable to be leached
out b ihe spring rains before the
summer crops cau appropiiate
them. Experience has shown that
; the best results from such vege
table matter are obtained when it
rots slowly and continuously
through tliK growing season. Food
i is thus supplied from day to day to
the growing plants, just as they
ueed it. The carbonic acid gene
r tted is constantly acting upon the
other ingredients of the soil and
making them available, whilst the
plants stand ready to appropriate
them. Spring plowing starts the
decomositiou of' the vegetable
matter at the right time. It then
keeps equal pace with the growing
crops and feeds them day by day.
Again, the liabilility to wash, is
increased by fall plowing; the fresh
ly loosened soil is more easily car
ried off by running water. Every
one has noticed the disastrous ef
fects of heavy rams upon recently
plowed land. Great swaths are
often cut through it to the full
depth to which it litis been broken.
A suggestion at this point. In
plowing alway s lif t the plow over
washes aud small gullies Plowing
through them only loosens the dirt
and prepares it to be earned off by
the next rain. Lift the plow and
let an trash collected on it tall
into the wash and help to till it up.
So much for general considera
tion . Are there any facts.
Unfortunately very lew direct ex
periments to test the matter have
been made, or at least published.
Mr. D ivid Dickson has put on re
cord h s experience, lie sometimes
left uuplowed strips through fields
plowed iu the fall. These strips;
were broken iu the spring, lie
states that in dry, cold winters fall
plowing gave best results, bat that
such seasons did not occur, on an
average, more than on?e in seven
years. In the other six, spring
plowing gave best results.
If a firmer has sufficient stock to
or do his plowing in the spring, with
out getting behind hand in his
work, let him defer it till spring.
If he has not a sufficiency, let him
choose between two evils and take
the lesser. Lt him plow in the
fall such 1 it.d as has most vegetable
matter on it - tiffclays rather than
light soiK Let him ridge hi.-! Kid.
leaving the surface rough and well
exposed to frost and air; and let
him provide, by furrows at proper
intervals, for rapiil escape of sur
face water. A tlat. smooth surface
is that which packs, bakes and
crusts most. W. L. .1.. in Atlanta
Editor of the Star: It appears to
me that all vho are acquainted
witl what has been attempted and
what his been accomplished m the
way of internal improvements in
this State, as well as the different
roads under contract, and that;ee:n
likely to be soon constructed can
not fail to see the importance and
necessity of ha ing the Noi th Caro
lina and the Atlantic and North
Carolina Railroads united and
operated as one road from Charlotte
to Morehead City under a lease,
with all necessary and proper re
strictions for a term of ninety nine
years to the Richmond ov Danville
All who are well posted as to
what is doing and will soon be done,
cannot fail to see that such a step
should be taken at as early a day
as possible. If this is not done, I
cannot see how it is possible to pre
vent great and lasting injury being
done to the roads in question and
to many of our towns, cities and to'
the State general.
I am largely interested in our
railroad-, and I have been driven
to this conclusion from stubborn .
been force,1, on mv
If we wish the above roads to
contnbute the greatest good pos
sible to our people ! he consolidat ion
and lease should certainly be made
and that at an eaily day. Such was
the design of those who first pro
jected the Central Railroad lrom
Beaufort harbor to the Tennessee
line, and their purpose should be
carried out, and can only be done
by adopting the dan 1 have sug
Time and experience have con
clusively demonstrated in this and
most of the other States and that
at the cot of untold millions, that
improvements of no kind, cost or
length, can be prudently and profit
ably managed by o-tate officials
appointed tv partizan legislators
or State officials, however patriotic
or gifted they may be.
The Cape Fear c Yadkin Valley ;
Raill oad is soou destined I hope to ,
bo extended to W lhningtou, and to
the Virginia line, there to connect
with the Norfolk & Western Rail
road. When this important con
uectiou is made it will open a long
and direct line ot road from Pulaski
City to Wilmington, which will pass
through as tine and productive a
country as is to be found south of
the Ohio river.
When the road and its branches
are all completed and fully equipped
the freight that will be crowded on
it lrom the great coal and iron
mines and furnaces of western
Virginia, to say nothing of the
lum her and other articles of freight
that will be offered for transporta
tion along the line, will soon stir
prise the most sanguine of its
Iu one word, the two roads will
be the great North Carolina State
highways that are soon destined to
tell with great power upon the
growth and prosperity of our State
and people. So, in order that every
part of the State may share in the ;
great benefits that may by good
management be made to flow from
these two general lines of improve
ment. New Berne if she is wise
will exert herself to the utmost to
have a railroad speedily constructed
lrom Wilmington to her owu
wharves there to connect witUthe
above named roads, which if man
aged as they should be, will do alp
that can now be done by such im
provements for our State.
The Seaboard system is essential-:
Iy a Norfolk system, and the road ;
now under contract from Hender -i
son via Danville, Madison, Win-;
stou, Wilkesboro, Taylorsville to1
Charlotte, promises to do as little
for the commercial growth and
prosperity of North Carolina as
they do to benefit and enhance the
value and prosperity of the North
Carolina Railroad from Charlotte
to Goldsboro and still less for the
Atlantic and North Carolina and
New Berne road.
A lull and useful survey of all
that is going on in the State it
seems to me, cannot fail to con
vince auv and all well informed
minds that the policy I have above
attempted in a hurried way to de j
scribe, is the only one that can be
adopted that will prevent great
harm coming to my native State.

Th" North Cirolina swamp lands are

into sources of wealth
"Ten barrels of corn per acre is a

molested or made th.m afraid. But a
change has come. A railroad from
