PREPARATION OF SEED CORN.
Our success the past year in producing such an
nbundancc of corn and all ether ne-cessaiics is not to
lie attribtitaJ entirely to a good or favorable season.
1 contend that our citizens deserve some endit; for I
think from my little opportunities of judging that
there was more planted than usual and much better
cultivated. It h::s often appeared to me that where
there is abundance there is hss'bud luck' and more
thrift and so it if with iiicvssaiics: if the farmer
plants fur an abundance and cultivates well ihc sea-
sons seem more favorable but bt him r'ant iust
-enough and bad luck' commences; his corn is a very
liad stand birds pull it up. seasons wrong &c.. &c.
I hive no doubt each of you have noticed anil felt
xu? then if you desire good seasons full cribs and
5i bad luck determine on planting enough acres at
iiO or ij bushels per acre as will leave you a ihreo
months supply at next gathering time then prepare
your seed corn plant well e-.irly and by good culti-
vation you may hes'ircof having corn to spare and
thus keep our country on the high road lo independ-
ence. I will tell yoti how to preserve seed corn and
in the words of the e.vcr lamented Jesse Buck If you
have the Cultivator refer to its 1st vol . page S3 and
you will see all he says; but as many have it not 1
will give It 3011. He says:
" I soak my seed 12 to 20 hours in hot water in
which is dissolved a few ounces of crude saltpetre
(worth in N. O. probably 10 to 12 cents per lb:) and
then add si to S quarts of corn half a pint of tar
previously wanned and diluted with a quail of warm
The corn is not to be taken out ui.il wanted and
should be well stirri-d while cooling. When wanted
to plant you will find each grain nicely coated with
tir then take ashes or lime and str well until each
grain becomes so coated that it can bo handled.
This mode will certainly protect corn in a very
great measure not only from rolling of cold after
planting but if birds &c. take to j our field the seed
having been impregnated vith the tar snd saltpetre
the stem will taste of it; and you will find even the
red birds will not relish the taste of the tender plant
nor will partridges try very open to pull it up.
I would j-Iso here ask if some such plan would net
have a tendency to destroy the increase of the weevil?
Nature provides some plan to keep up the breed of
this pest; now it is I will not pretend to say; but if
planting garden peas 2 years old or where the weevil
is' destroyed has a tendency to stop their ravages
there why not a similar plan' in corn?
The weevil gets into corn while standing in the
field and 1 doubt whether there be any increase after
IiDtisintr only an mcrrase of ability to miurc by bein
hatched in greater abundance. How do they get in
the corn in the field other than by the perfect weevil
a moth ? But how they are kept in existence in
the field during winter and until next season for mis
chief is to me unknown. Are they planted in the
corn? or arc there a supply in the weeds grass
I have gathered the garden pea carefully closed
them up in a newspaper doubled then put them up
a bag no chance of any insect if coining out of the
Tjea. to travel about yet the pea may have 1. 2 or
tnore-of thc weevil and many in two years will be
eaten up then there must be eggs deposited while in
"the haum and sometimes several in one pea.
J thin: the insect can be destroyed in the grain by
water that is hot enough and yet not so hot as lo injure
corn or turned into cold water quickly.
Yours truly HENRY.

AVhile at Zacatecas I had an opportunity to write
my friends in the United States an American gen-!
tlcman promising to forward my letters in snch a way
as would ensure their safe delivery. It turned out
that he was correct every one of them reaching their
destination. I speak of this circumstance as many
of the letters I sent from difletcnt points in Mexico
never left the country at least they did not arrive '
doubtless knew they were written by some one of the
prisoners and they probably thought they were scrv-
ing their country by withholding them.
A subscription wes started among the foreigners
in Zacatecas for the benefit of the Texan prisoners
and a sum exceeding one thousand dollars besides
no inconsiderable amount of clothing hats and shoes
raised for their necessities the Governor and some of
the .Mexicans suoscriomg iiocrany. j ne cioiumg
was U istributed and also a small sum of money to

sick anJ infirm as well as to carry the small bundles
of the men. The lives of many of our men werci
wc found our blankets had already been taken and
our places occupied by some of our fiiends. leaving
us nearly as badly situated as was poor Falconer
The night was raw. rainy and uncomfortable and
we were obliged to lakciip our qua iters near the
door. A drunken sentinel whose duty it was to
walk outside and see that none of us escaped finally
opened the door and took his station inside and no
content with thus annoying us he howled the disa-
greeable "scnlincla alcrlat' in our ears every five
minutes until Dr. Whittaker look a summary way
of getting rid of both his presence and his noise.
The doctor told the fellow to shut both the door and
his m.iuth at once: the sentinel answered him indig-
nantly: and the next moment thc doctor knocked him
sprawing into the mud outside musket and all. and
then immediately closed and fastened the door after
him. We expected the fellow would instantly make
a complaint and that we should receive a visit from
the officer of the guard for an explanation; but wc
never heard anything more of it.
Early the next morning thc waggons which had
been hired arrived and soon after five horses aspres-
ents for some of our officers from the Mexican gentle
man who had treated us so kindly in the city. After
pa 1 taking of an excellent breakfast sent us by a
French gentleman we were ordered to prepare for
our iourney and shortly we were again upon the
road for the city of Mexico. The main body of
prisoners was guarded with no more strictness than
heretofore but an extra guard was detailed for the
special purpose of watching Messrs. Navarro and
Falconer riding close by their side and watching
their every movement. There was something pecu
liarly hard in the case of the latter. He was more
anxious than any of the prisoners to examine thor
oughly such of the cities and towns as wc might pass
through had never harbored a single hostile feeling
toward the country was innocent of any inimical act
against the Mexicans and was now kept a close pris-
oner and debarred every little privilege granted the
rest of us for no other reason than that Thovias Fal
coner sounded and looked more like Robert Foster
than any other name on the list. Tornel had seen
the name of the latter attached to some of the papers
taken at the capture of Gen. McLeod and supposing
that he was an important personage and among the
prisoners had ordered him lo be closely confined and
strictly watched. The real personage was all the
wliile peaceably and quietly pursuing his nvoeations
as principal clerk in thc war omcc at Austin

A Bath Strange Vis tiers Cuiloms of the

Kenluckian His Adventure with Rablado Es-
pirllu Santo 1 Fandango at Night Arrival
at La Parada.
Early in the af'ernoon of the 4th January after a
pleasant days march wc reached the town ol Ujo
.Calienle. Here wewcre allowed to ramble about!
wherever ne pleased and there bein" a noted warm1
well in the edge of the lown several of our party
visited it for the purpose of bathin?. The water boils i
up in great quantities and forms a large and deep ba-
sin from the very fountain head. Vc immediately
divested ourselves of our clothing and dashed into the
refreshing element diving and swiining about in
water just warm cr.oudi to be comfortable. Rofore
we bad left the larsc natural bathing-tub cur party i
water about ihem; now diving to the bottom and then
rising to the surface shaking the water from their
(longhair and paddling about like Netvfoundland
dogs. It may not have been generally remarked
and may not be always the case but nearly all the
females I have seen swim Mexicans Indians and
all paddle along after the manner of Spanish water1

That the females living upon many of the rivers
deemed highly indelicate in other lands: and howev
er much the foreigner may at first be tempted to
doubt their strict correctness he soon learns that no
conventional rules oppose a barrier to such acts
True modesty consists in the thought which governs
every action; and viewed in this light there was cer-
tainly no immodesty in the girls of Ojo Calicntc in-
dulging in a bath even if they did appear "right be-
fore folks" as thc philosophic Sam Slick would
On the ensuing night we reached El Carro a fine
hacienda belonging lo the Count of Jerral. About
noon on the Gth January .vc stopped at the town of
Salina where there are extensive salt works. Here
at the fonde where we were ha.'ttd we found a stout
j Kenluckian named Harris who was one of the own-t
ers of an American circus company then perform
ing at San Luis Potosi. Harris was now on his
way to Zacatecas for thc purpose of obtaining a suita-
ble place in which to perform in that city and al the
same time the consent of thc governor. As he had
arrived at Salina a short time bfore us he had of
course selected lhe best room in the fonde for his own
use. This room happening to please Capt. Roblado
he ordered H. to leave it; but the latter told him at
once he had the best right and should retain posses-
sion as long as hc pleased. Roblado fumed and
swore a little and then left the place thrcatning to
bring the Alcalde to his assistance. The Kenluck
ian started soon after for the Alcalde's residence but
before he had reached il he found that Roblado had
been there before him. and had procured a uril
ejectment. Harris was now i
lorecd lo leave Hie room;
. . .
but hc remarked that if he could but have reached
thc Alcalde's first and slipped a dollar into his hand
hc could have retained possession of the room even
though fifty Roblados had wanted it. The dollar is
thc most powerful weapon with many of the officers
of justicein Mexico. and when employed in the cause
of u man law and equity must step aside.
Thc next day we reached Espiritu Santo a splen-
did hacienda having a fine church and a very well in-
formed and gentlemanly priest Here too we found
an excellent blacksmith and as the road ahead was
rcnorted as vcrv lockv several of us had our horses
shod. The OAner of the hacienda had two or three
verv nrettv daughters who had been educated in
Spain and there were also a number of ladies of the
uriest's family who lived inthesame house with them.
At night a fandango was given to the Mexican ofn-:
cersbytnc former to which a number ol the 1 exans
were invited. One of the girls was an extremely
graceful waltzer played em the juiwr with much
taslcand feeling and uiih a ...inpliwis supper it
