[Below we [jive a letter from Wm.
Stiles, furnishing a detailed account
cism upon mv mode of treatment of
this grape. My own idea is that I
pruned it too severely, and allowed
it to overhear; hut my neighbors,
of his experience at grape culture who did not do this, lost their crops
near Austin. It will be observed as 1 Iost mine- If !t could be raised
that the Malaga did exceedingly
well, fruiting bountifully, but the
Black Spanish was a failure owing
to the rot. We believe this was due
to the peculiarity of the seasons in
that portion of the State—experience
shows that the climate of this sec-
tion is much more favorable to the
vine, and the danger from rot not
near as great. Those thinking of
cultivating the vine in Texas mar-
get some useful hints from this letter.
The vine does exceedingly well in
this portion of the State, and indeed
all fruits of the temperate zone—
much better than in regions further
South. Grape culture has proved
very successful in Northern Texas,
and no soil is better adapted to it
than that within a radius of three to
six miles of Denison. Wild varie-
ties, yielding fine large fruit, are
scattered all through the timber.]
Messrs. Editors—Although quite
a number of years have elapsed
since I first set out mv vineyard,
some account of the proceeding may
he of use to any of your readers who
arc thinking of doing the same thing
at the present time ; at any rate, they
may he able to profit by any mis-
takes I have made.
In the spring of t86o I prepared
my ground, about three-fourths of an
acre, by deep plowing. I first ran
the plow as deep as it would go with
two horses, then put on a third horse
and plowed in the same furrows un-
til 1 had reached the depth of twelve
inches. The ground is a chocolate
successfully it would he an acquisi-
tion, for when fully ripe it is a first-
rate table grape. Many persons do
not know this, because they pluck it
too soon ; it requires four weeks from
the time it blackens to fully ripen its
juices. Judge Paschal, who purchas-
ed them as long as I had them for
sale, always kept a supply in his
closet a week old; he said there
could he no finer eating. They keep
easily and hear transportation well.
1 have tresspassed long enough on
your time and space. If you wish
to know anything further about mv
fruit, 1 shall take pleasure in giving
you any information 1 have gained
that may be worth having.

people of Texas. The State was,
for many years, looked upon as the
home of the desperado and the ref-

That these opinions arc the result
of ignorance will be apparent to any-
one who will, for a moment, consid-
er what haunts the criminals seek in
their flight, and what are those cir-
cumstances and conditions which de-
velop the wicked and desperate. It
may he true that Texas lias been
compelled to give shelter to
criminals, and may have had her ruf-

countenance to, this class of being!

It is instructive and encouraging
to glance at the history of American
journalism. It was not until the
lapse of two centuries after the dis-
covery of the art of printing that the
idea was conceived of applying that
art to the production of anything like
a public newspaper. In the four-
teenth and fifteenth centuries, indeed,
the need of such an agency for the
diffusion of intelligence among the
people was scarcely felt, and the pre-
diction that a newspaper, in the mod-
ern sense of the word, could ever
have an existence, would no doubt
have been regarded as an evidence
of the wildest lunacy. It has been
impossible to fix with certainty the
date at which the first public journal
made its appearance ; we only know
—perhaps I should rather say conjec-
ture—that it was some time in the
16th century, and in Italy. The first
newspaper in England was establish-
ed in 1657. The Puritans had a
printing press at Cambridge, Mass.,
as earlv as 1639, hut the first - news-
paper in America—the Boston .Yews

Fourteen years earlier, however, a
single number of a journal was is-
sued, which was promptly con-
demned and probably surpassed by the
Colonial assembly. The first news-
paper of Philadelphia appeared Dec.
22, 1719; the first in N’cw York,
Oct. to. 1725. These of course
were all weeklies. Since that day
the growth of journalism in this
country is among the marvels of his-
tory, as a few figures, gleaned from
various sources will show :
In 1734. there were four newspa-
pers in Boston, two in New York,
two in Philadelphia, and one in Wil-
liamsburg, Va.; in the whole coun-
try not another. From that time till
1776, the year of the Declaration of
Independence, the number increased
considerably. I11 that year there
were seven in Massachusetts, one in
New Hampshire, two in Rhode Is-
land, four in Connecticut, four in
New York, nine in Pennsylvania,
two each in Maryland, Virginia, and
North Carolina, one in Georgia—37
in all. One of these—the Advcrtis-
cr of Philadelphia—was a semi-
wceklv ; all the rest were weeklies.
From 1776 to 1S00 the number of
newspapers in the United States, in-
creased to 200, of which several
were dailies, the first daily having
been the Pennsylvania Packet, or
the General Advertiser, which, un-
der an abbreviated title lived until
1837. According to the records of
tSto the number of newspapers in
the country at that time was 369, of
which 27 were dailies, and their to-
tal annual issue was 22.321,000 cop-
ies. Iiii83,| there-were 11 dailies
in Philadelphia and 12 in New York
with a circulation varying from 1,000
to 4.000 copies. In 1828 the whole
number of journals had increased to
852, with a yearly issue of 68.117.-
179 copies. In 1830 the number
was estimated at 1,000. The census
of 1840 returned 1.631 newspapers,
with a yearly issue of 195,838,673
copies, or an average of nearly 22
copies to each person in the popula-
tion, and of a little over 12 journals
to every 100.000 inhabitants. In
t8;o the number of dailies was 254,
with an average circulation of 1.200
copies each. In i860 there were
385 dailies, 79 bi-weeklies, 86 tri-
weeklies. and 1,173 weeklies. The
number of sheets issued annually
was: dailies, 1,478,435; tri-week
lies, 107,170: bi-weeklies, 175,165;
weeklies, 7,581,930, making a total
*if 9,342,690. At the present time,
according to Geo. P. Row ell & Co.'s
“American Newspaper Directory.”
the number of dailies in the country
is 526; of the tri-weeklies, 107; of
semi-weeklies, 113 ; of weeklies,
4.808. The amount of circulation
of all these papers is not given ; but
it is safe to assume that the increase
in the last ten years has been very
great. I think it can he no exagger-
ation if we set the number at 25.-
000.000 of copies.
