A patron of husbandry his boldly
and candidly made the assertion that
there is more money in raisiig wheat
than in producing cotton, ard to sus-
tain the position he now cones for-
ward with this proof, gleaned from
the best information which ould be
obtained from old producers of both
crops, and if we have erred, we
would thank the knowing ones to
give us the benefit of their expe-
rience. To make the best showing
l or cotton, I make the figures all in
favor of cotton—both in quantity and
price—I base all these figures upon
oaid labor, and upon the product of
one hundred acres, to be cultivated,
giving cotton the benefit of produ-
cing as much to the hand as was the
general average, with the old system
of slow labor, which was ten acres
to the hand, and which, I am in-
formed, is the maximum :
Ten hands, $20 per month---- $2,400 00

Everybody, black and white, seen
bound for Texas. We find the fol-
lowing in a St. Louis paper:
Nearly all the western bound trains
now leaving the city are well filloi
with emigrants and travelers who
are bound for the far West, seeking
new homes in the fertile lands of
Knnsas and Texas. Most of them
come from the States of Indiana,
Tennessee and Georgia.
The Atlanta Constitution says;
“The emigration of negroes west-
ward continues to attract public at-
tention. The tide, it seems, starts
with diminished volume in Georgia,
gathering immense additions in Ala-
bama, to pour its black flood into
Mississippi, Louisiana or Arkansas.
The spirit of unrest seems to per-
meate the whole race. For, while
the Georgia and Alabama blacks
are moving into Mississippi and Lou-
isiana, a new tide starts westward
from those States to loose itself on
the immense plains of Texas.”
Let them come on. There is
room enough here for millions yet.

Now some of the devotees of cotton
will say “you are not sure of getting
twenty-five bushels of wheat to the
acre.” I11 reply we would say you
are just as sure of it as you are that
you will get three hundred and fifty
pounds of lint, to the acre. They
may say “you can’t seed down that
much land for twenty-five dollars.”
I can put it in with a drill, with one
span of horses and one man, in five
days. Another point in favor of the
wheat crop is, while it is growing,
you can cultivate, if you have the
land, about as much cotton as though
you had no wheat in, and after your
wheat is off, if you sow clover with
it, you have a fine summer and fall
pasture for your stock, and before
picking time you can break up your
stubble and seed down part of it
again ; reserving a portion to break
up during I he winter for spring
wheat, oats, or corn, to fatten your
hogs; if corn don’t do well, put it
into barley, which makes as good
pork as corn, and is one of the best
crops raised in Texas. If corn is
put in early, and well cultivated, it
will do as well here as in Missouri
It is believed that the Colorado
spring wheat will do as well here as
oats ; if such proves to be the case,
Northern Texas will be the best
wheat producing portion of the Uni-
