    to $3O per pair. They say there is great ',dissatis
faction among the troops on account of not being
paid. Some companies on James Island stacked
their arms, and 'would not go into battle. They say
they are all very tired of the war, but their chivalry
will not allow them to offer any compromise that
would be likely to be accepted by the Government.
The negroes are receiving all attention as usual,
at the hands of Brigadier-General Saxton, (Military
Governor of the State of South Carolina). They
are spoken of as brother soldiers of the Union; but
I hope as does every true American, that 1 may live
to see white men put down the rebellion. If every
man would fight for his country, and let the negro
'question be, this war would be over - before six
t,months;. but the misfortune is that the majority of,
inen, and especially those in high rank, are fighting
o fill their pockets, and for military and political
h onors "That is what ruined our country." If
very man had been for his country, and not for
irnself, this rebellion would have been crushed in
;ts infancy; but new, through the dissatisfaction.
and delay of our army, the enemy have had a chance
to fortify, and have grown to be a strong foe who
will, if not 'arrested in theirdareer, be the victors
before long.. It !is not for the soldier to think, it is
said, as they have Generals to think for them ; but
they do and will continue to think—for it is the pri
vate soldier.enat does the fighting; and they should
do some'•of the thinking—sc far at least, as to have
vote.. Let-soldiers have a voice in the elections.
DIY the soldier hada:voice in the elections they would

retch for the sohlieh as any man is the Union. 1

where they could have their wives, mothers and sir
kers to take care of them, and make them comfort(

The Soil is, in great part, a Rich Clay Loam, suit
able for Wheat, Grass and Potatoes—also a dark and. ,
rich sandy loam, suitable for corn, sweet-potatoes,
tobacco, all kinds of vegetables and root crops, and
the finest varieties of fruit, such as Grapes; Pears,
Peaches, Apricots, Nectarines, Blackberries, Melens
and other fruits, best adapted to the Philadelphia
and New York Markets.f In respect to the soil and
crops there can he no mistake, as visitors can exam

correct, there would be no use in their being mad.

'will perceive that it enjoys the best market in the Un
ion, and has direct communicationwith NeW YOrk

miles froth the latter. Produce ethis market brings
double the price that it does in locations distant
front the cities. In this location it can be put into
market the strop morning . it is gathered, and for
what the farther sells he gets the Eighest price:
whilst groceries and other articles he purchases he
gets at the lowest pripe. In the West, What. he sells
brings him a pittance,. but for what he buys he pays
two priceS. In Ipdating here the settler has many
other advantages. He is within a few hours, by,
railroad, of all the great cities' of New England and
the Middle-States. lie is near his old friends arid
associations. He has school for his children, di
vine service, and all the advantages of civilization,
and he is near a large city.

lubrious and open, whilst the summers are no warm

line of latitude with northern Virginia.

• Why the Property hos not been Settled Before?
Thisquestion the reader naturally asks. It is be- .
cause it hits been held in large tracts by families not
disposed to'sell, and being without railroad facilities
they had few inducements. The Railroad hasjust
been Opened through the property this season, for
the 'first time.
Visitors are shown over the land in a carriage„

a view to 'settle, should bring money to secure their
purchases, as locations are not held upon refusal.

Report of Solon Robinson,
113; z - :1 7- The following is un extract from the report
of Solon Robinson, Esq., published in the New York
Trebune, in reference to - Vineland. All persons can
read this report with interest.
Advantages of Farming near Home—Vineland—Re
marks upon Marl—Soil, its great Fertility—Thep
Cause of Fertility—Amount of Crops Produced—
Practical Evidence.
It is. certainly one of tie most extensive fertile tracts,
in an almost level position, and suitable condition for
pleasant farming that we know of this side of the west
ern prairies. We found some of the oldest farms appar
ently just as profitable productive as when first cleared•
of forest fifth or a hundred years ago.
The geologist would soon discover thecause of this
continued fertility. The whole country is a marine
deposit, and all through the soil we found evidences
of calcareous substances, generally in the form of
indurated calcareous marl, showing many distinct
forms of ancient shells, of the tertiary formation;
and this manly Substance is scattered all through the
soil, in a very comminuted form, and in the exact
condition most easily assimilated by such plants as
the farmer desires to cultivate.
Marl, in all its forms, has been used to fertilize
crops in England, from the time it was occupied by
the Romans; and in France and Germu.lly a marl
bed is chanted on as a valuable bed of manure, that
can be ?dug and carted and spread over the field.—
How mach more-valuable then it must be, when found
already ',mixed through the soil, where new particles will
be turned up and exposed, and transformed to the owner's ,
use every time he stirs the earth.
flavink then satisfied our minds of thecause, they
will not be excited with wonder at seeing indubitable
evidence of fertility in a soil which in other situa
tions, having the same general characteristics or at
least appearances, is entirely unrenumerative except
as its productiveness is promoted by artificial fertil
'A few.words about the quality and value of this
lanu for cultiviition, of which we have some strong
Our first visit was to William D. Wilson, Franklin
township, Gloucester county, who purchased some
eight miles north of Millville, about.three years ago,
for the purpose of establishing a steam mill, to work
up the timber into lumber, to send off by the new
railroad, as well as the firewood and coal, for, which
he built a branch track a mile and a half long. lle
also furnished sixteen miles of the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the mill profitable, though
his main object was to open a farm, having become
convinced that the soil was valuable for cultivation.
In this he has not been disappointed, as some of his
crops prove. For instance, last year, the second
time of cropping, 306 bushe," rif ,potatoes on one
acre, worth 60 bents &bush el in the field. This year
seven acres, without manure, produoed 356 bushels
of oats. In one field, the first crop was potatoes,
planted among the roots, and yielded 76 bushels.—
The potatoes were dug, and wheatsown, and yield
ed 16 bushels ; and the stubble turned under and
sown to buckwheat, which yielded 33-1- bushels.;
and then theground was sown to clover and timothy,
which gave as a-first crop 2+ tons per acre.
The fertilizers applied to these crops were first,
ashes from clearings: second, 225 pounds of super
phosphate of lime; third, 200 pounds Peruvian gu
ano; then 50 bushels of slaked lime has been spread
upon the clover since it was mowed, and turned in
for wheat.
Mr. Wilson's growing crops. and the wheat stub
ble of the present season, ull indicate his haul as
productive as any part of the State.
At Mary Barrow's, an old style Jersey woman
farmer, several miles south of Mr. Wilson's, we were
so particularly struck with the fine appearance of a
field of corn, that we stopped to inquire of the hire&
man how it was produced. We found that the laud
had been the year .but one before in wheat. sown
with clover, and this cut one season, and last spring
plowed once, with one "poor old nag," and planted
with corn.
"Yes, but you manured high, we suppose ?" we
said interrogatively, and got this reply
"Waal; you see, we couldn't a done that; 'Ollll3O
we hadn't but forty one-horse loads altogether, for
23 acres, and we, wanted the most. on't for the track.
'The truck consisted . of beets, carrots, cabtat i le,
cucumbers, melons, &c., and a very productive patch
of lima beans, grown for marketing. So we were
satisfied that the soil wa ll s not infertile, even unaided
by clover, which had fed the coin, because the "truck
patch" had not been in cultivaticn long enough to.
obliterate all signs of the forest. '
- Our next visit was to the large farm of Andrew
Sharp ; five miles north of !di Urine, from 'half to a
mile east. of the railroad, and just abouf in the cen
tre of Vineland. Mr. Sharp commenced work hers
in December, 1.858, upon 250 acres. In less than
three years, he has ,got 234 acres cleared and in
crops'this season, as well inclosed and divided into
several fields, with cedar rail or pole fence; has
built a twostory dwelling. about 36 by 90 feet, and
a smaller house for farm laborers, and a stable ,and
