: Native Wine.
Mr. Cist, in a recent number of his Ad-
vertiser, gives the following interesting!
account of the present and prospective
f condition of grape culture and wine mak-
mg m Uncinnti and vicinity. He says :
I have recently visited the wine-cellers
of Messrs. Longworth & Zimmerman, on
Sycamore St.-. Mr. Z. the active.partner,
with his two sous, have been engaged in
Europe for years in the .manufacture of

velopment.of a fine article, than the orig-'
inal manufacture. .
The wine cellars of this establishment
are lOo feet in length, an average ot 4o
in width, and 18 in height. Each sea-
son's wine is kept by himself, in casks of

Messrs. Zimmerman will put up this
season 80,000 bottles; in 1853, 40 000 ;
in 1854 ,o,000 j and in 18o5, 100,000..
What will be done beyond that period
must depend on the yield of the grape
crop in 1S52, and later seasons. All this
is Catawba wine, termed Still, in distinc-
tion from Sparkling Catawba. .

witnessed the influence of a newspaper up
