from Gen Grant is promulgated by

ordor for instruction and guidance
of all concornod. Grant approves
Buchanan's courso both in regard
to tho State and municipal govern-
ments. He says officers elected can-
not bo installod until tho State is ad-
mitted that until then tho Stato
government is provisional and en
tirely under liucbanan s control.
Ho loaves the mattor of oaths to bo
taken by tho now officers entirely
to Buchanan's judgment. Ho sug
gests however that tho oath pro-
scribed by the new constitution only
should bo required. This latter sug-
gestion if allowed will permit many
olriccrs to qualiiy wno couiu nut
othorwiso do so.

Now this position ia equally un-
tenable for within the last three

planted with wheat and shared llio

in either tho soil or quality of the

important questions and more easi-
ly asked than answered; ycl 1 think
u correct answer may be given with
much less skill and labor than it
will require to muko tho answer
available to tho Texas farmer: First
it is necessary to havo good seed
and that of n sort that will maturo
early and stand tho winters well;
sow early say in September on land
well prepared and give the requisite
quantity of seed and with ordinary
seasons such as wo have had in years
gono by wo will bo again blessed
with good crops; but with such sea-
sous as wo have had lor tho last
threo years and with our farms in
the condition that thoy havo ever
been in and aro now in and with
tho best seed either riati vo or foreign
Hint over was planted in Texas wo
shall fail to muko a crop not bo
causo of tho bad seed not because
tho land was not sufficiently well
plowed at and beforo tho planting
timo but becauso of tho peculiar
character of tho soil upon which wo
plant and the lute hour wo did plant
say Novomber and December the
want of rain in tho fall and early
wintor and tho superabundance in
the spring. Now wo cannot make
it rain at our will or stop it at pleas
ure but wo can do much to lessen
the delotorious effects of a drought
or flood upon the crap. To accom-
plish this we must ditch and drain
the land to tho depth of at least two
fo.it. To do this it requires skill
and labor tho last of which
scarce and hard to command at this
time. By a skillful and well order-
ed system of underdrawing so as to
roliove lhe surface of tho land in cul-
tivation of the superabundance of
water we make the elements neces-
sary to the growth of wheat availa-
ble wo get rid of a great quantity
of stagnated wator that without this
or somo other efficient mode of tlrai n -ing
must remain in tho subsoil Uu
til disposed of by evaporation dur-
ing which timo the subsoil is kept
cold becomes sour produces or
causes fungi which seizes upon the
wheat in tho form of rust first upon
the blado and then tho stalk and
the crop is lost; but this is not all :
when tho land is ut full saturation
both Burfuco and subsoil Wheat Will
not grow it cannot make roots and
without roots tho stalk and heads
fail. Think of this there aro but
few plants that can flourish upon a
wet cold sour subsoil; an excess of
water will defeat any and every
coreal crop and moro certainly the
wheat crop than any other.
Now. I wish to propound a dues
Hon to those farmers who have been
raising wheat cn tho block lands of
this country for tho last ten to fif-
teen years : Havo you not mndo

been done rapidly heretofore becauso
certain arrangements giving tho

These arrangements ns wo tinder-
