The census reports show that in 1800, Sorghtlm was cultivated in nearly ov- j cry State and Territory of the Union, I the yield that year being 7,235,025 gal- ! lons. Since then a larger experience j in cultivating and constantly improv ing machinery in manufacturing havo tended to increase the breadth plant ed every year. Although the newspa pers and the agricultural reports of the patent office at Washington called at tention to it about ten years ago, yet, I believe, no Sorghum molasses was manufactured in Mifflin county before the fall of '64:. Will it pay, was, of course, tho first question. The eropof 1565 answered that question satisfacto rily in tho affirmative for many of our farmers. Last summer was unfavora ble to tho crop owing to the unusually early occurrence of dry weather, which prevented the plants from getting a fair and early start. Sorghum is a hardy plant. With moisture enough to give the roots of the plant a fair start a good crop may be expected even in a dry season because tho roots ex tend very deep into the ground. Much of the cane was damaged last fall for want of care in cutting and setting up in the dry soon after tho appearance of heavy frost. Some farmers tied the cane in bundles while wet and green, then packed it into a wagon or even in piles out in the field, and kept it thus a week or two until it was halt rotten; then, of course, the manufactu rer refused the job or made a dark, stringy, ill flavored article, as was to be expected. Others cut the cano when dryland set it up loose in the dry, and were rewarded, notwithstand ing the unfavorable season, by a fair quality and quantity of syrup. For productiveness and mildness of flavor tho regular Sorghum stands sec ond to none; the Liberian would be as desirable were it not a few weeks la tor in ripening. The White Imphee does not yield quite so well. The lied Imphee is a few weeks earlier than the Sorghum and is about as well-flavored. Sorghum will grow where corn will, but the best flavored and highest col ored syrups are made from cane rais ed on high, dry, and rather loose soil. It should bo planted as soon in the spring as the soil becomes warm enough to cause the seeds to germi nate. Plant in hills about twenty in ches apart dropping about eight seeds to a hill; or, it can be most easily kept free from grass and weeds by "chock ering" it like corn. When the hills are as far apart, as corn-hills about fifteen seeds may be dropped in a hill; if they all grow, which is not likely, pull up four or five stalks. The seeds should never he covered more than half an inch deep, and grass and weeds must be kept down until tho plants arc about two feol high. Now lot us come back to the ques tion, Will it pay? Let us see. One hundred and twenty gallons is a very common 3'ield per acre; as high as two hundred gallons.were raised by sevor al farmers in Kishacoquillas Valley in 1865. Suppose you plant half an acre; if properly cultivated and harvested you may confidently expect sixty gal lons, and if your soil is good and the season favorable you may have eighty or one hundred. But suppose you get only forty-eight gallons and pay one third for manufacturing; you still have thirty-two gallons left, and at seventy five cents per gallon you havo twenty four dollars worth of syrup off half an acre of land. But I have made tho fig ures very low. On good soil, with proper care in cultivating and harvest ing, you will be just as likely to net fort}' or fifty dollars worth of syrup off your half acre. I have done it on more than one-half acre. Can sugar bo made from Sorghuin ? Numerous attempts have been made; a few partially successful, others fail ed. But Mr. Wm. Clough, editor ol the Sorgo Journal, has at length dis covered a process which, according to the published reports, is full of promise to the Sorghum enterprise. A corres pondent of the Independent speaks as follows of his invention as exhibited before the Ohio State Surgo Associa tion, at its lato meeting: " But the most interesting feature of the conven tion was the exhibition by Mr. Win. Clough, editor of the Sorgo Journal, of his new deodorixing and clari fying process. This is one of the most important discoveries of the 19th century. "Upon his gas-stove, in the presenceof theaudience, he treated the most miserable syrups which could be found in the collection of samples, and also those which had been clarified by the use of liine; and all were astonished at the enormous deposit ol impuri ties, rendering syrups which were before opaqueand of uauseating taste transparent and of the most deli cious sweei—in fact, pure simple syrup. Syrups thus treated crystalize readily, so that the convention felt as if great progress had realty been made, and the success of Sorgo culture fully established. In view of this discovery, and in fact that nearly every mem ber present had made more or less Sorgo syrup last year—large specimens of which were on exhibition— the convention passed unanimously the following resolution: " Unsolved, That the success of tho past year in manufacturing sugar froui the northern cane gives unmistakable evideuee that it can be done ultimately with equal paying advantage with that of making syr ups." When our people once produce their own sugar and molasses a decided step wormsmimSj, SCHIKHMSS <s®OTyuT 8 ipigsrsa will have been taken, not only in indi vidual but also in national economy and prosperity, for notwithstanding the large quantities of sugar and mo lasses produced in the United States a large amount is obtained from abroad In 1859 the sum paid for imported su gars exceeded 831,000,000, and in the same season 30,000,000 of gallons of molasses were imported, iPenc© tho culture of the northern cane may be advocated from national as well as from individual and local considera tions. ENTERPRISE. Opening of tlie Great Universal Exposition. PARIS, April I.—Tho great Paris Universal Exposition was formally opened this morning. The day was observed as a holiday by the entire population of the city. The morning dawned cloudily, but tho sky cleared at an early hour, and by ten o'clock in the forenoon the weather was most beautiful, like that enjoyed on a fine day of May in New York. The state of the weather may be taken indeed as typical of the exhibition building, which is now in great confusion, but when fully completed will be one of the wonders of the world. Viewed at a distance the building resembles a mammoth gasometer dress ed' wi*3h flags, but when entered it is found 5 to be in every way convenient. At eleven o'clock a. m., the doors were opened, and by the time of the Panpcror's arrival there were five thou sand persons inside. Outside, along the banks of the river Seine, and on all the hills and roads for miles around Paris, at least one hundred thousand people bad assembled There were eight thousand policemen on duty, and the order was excellent. Every car riage in Paris seems to beemplo) r cd in journeys to and from the building. The grounds of and around the ex position building are in a lamentable state of confusion. Wagons and work men were busy carting away the rub bish when the Emperor arrived. Heaps of dirt and straw and packing-cases lay around or were temporarily thrown into the unfinished arbors and fancy cottages. Inside the building was the same scone, everywhere debris; not one tenth of the- goods opened or ar ranged, but the French department, of course, in the best order; next to that the Russian, and third tho English ; all the other departments not ready. Tho American department is one of the most incomplete, and the commis sioners, exhibitors, and Americans gen erally in the city are much dissatisfied with Commissioner Beck with, who ap pears totally inefficient. Tho only de partment in operation is the restau rants, but even here the Americans are behindhand. The only goods which have been damaged on the voyage are American. At one o'clock the invited guests as sembled in the art gallery, where America made a fine show, man} 7 fine pictures being exhibited and well hung, but tho English display was much greater. When the guests gathered, however, the superiority of the Amer ican ladies was conceded. They were the belles of the day. A brilliant company blazing with diamonds and opbirs tilled the central hall to welcome the Emperor and Em press, who came precisely at two o'- clock in the afternoon. The crowd outside the building was good natured but not demonstrative toward them. No cheers greeted the imperial party. They drove up a long avenue covered with a velvet canopy of green and gold, decorated with flags aud lined with soldiers. They alighted at a splendid pavilion specially built for the Empe ror. The Emperor immediately reappear ed, and gave his arm to the Empress, and proceeded on foot to the main door. During the imperial progress full bands played the national airs.— The cheering now grew louder, the Americans and English present lead ing with hearty " hurrahs," and Jap anese, Turks, Italians, Prussians, Ger mans, and French joining in the dif ferent styles peculiar to their several countries. The Emperor and Empress bowed repeatedly to the crowd as they as cended the platform whioh runs around tho machine gallery. The Einperor wore a plain evening dress, with a scarf of tho Legiou of Honor, and car ried a heavy oane. He looked smiling, but pale and fatigued. The Empress was robed in black silk, and looked in fine health. The Prince Imperial and Prince Napoleon were not present. r l he Princess (Jlothildo wore a brown vel vet dross, powdered with gold. A distinguished party of senators and ministers formed an eseort for the imperial party. Prince Lcuchtenburg represented Russia. Tho members of tho diplomatic corps accredited to tho French court, cloth ed in uniform, had special seats re served for them at the opening scone, SsSßHfei Vol. LVII, Ko. 15 but they were completely bidden from view. Preceded by the chamberlain, the party passed round the entire gallery, nearly a mile long. The different na tional commissions stood on a platform over the sections allotted to their countries. Turks, Japanese, Russians, Moors, Tunisians, antl Persians wore their full national costumes. The Emperor spoko a few words to oaeh commission, but at the American department ho stopped with the Em press and bowed to the crowd, who were cheering heartily. Half an hour was consumed in this tour. Then the cortege descended and passed through the art and a few other galleries, and at three o'clock returned to the palace. The exposition will not be ready till May. One-half of all the space is allot ted to France, and that is not com plete. The English are very strong in machinery, beating the Americans in that department. England being near Paris accounts in a great meas ure for this. There is nothing like so many stran gers here as were expected. The number ot Americans is not much greater than usual every season. Prices have gOne up fearfully. The hotels raise their prices fifty per cent, after this week, it is useless to come to see the exposition before May. Intemperance a Social Evil. It reaches abroad to others—invades the family and social circle-and spread# woe and sorrow all around. It cuts down youth in its vigor—manhood in its strength—and age in its weakness. It breaks the father's heart —bereaves the doting mother—extinguishes nat ural affection —erases conjugal affec tion—blots out filial attachment— blights parental hope—brings down mourning age in sorrow to the grave. It produces weakness, not strength; sickness, not health; death, not life. It makes wives widows—children or phans—fathers fiends—and all of them paupers and beggars. It hails fevera feeds rheumatism—nurses gout— welcomes epidemics—invites cholera— imparts pestilence, and embraces con sumption. It covers the land with idleness, poverty, disease and crime. It fills your jails—supplies your alms houses, and demands your asylums. It engenders controversies—fosters quarrels and cherishes riots. It con demns law —spurns order—and loves mobs. It crowds your Penitentiaries, and furnishes victims for your scaf folds.

It bribes votes; disqualifies votors; corrupts elections; pollutes our institutions;andendangers our government. It degrades the cit izens; debases the legislator, dishonors the statesman; and disarms the patriot. It brings shame, not honor; terror, not safety; despair not hope; misery, not happiness And now, with the malev olence of a fiend, it calmly surveys its desolations, and insatiate with havoo, poisons felicity; kills peace; ruina morals; blights confidence; slays rep utation ; and wipes out national honor; then curses the world, and smiles at its ruins.
