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..

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„ f'ree of expense, and afforded time and opportunity for•thorough investigation. Those who come with a view to 'settle, should bring money to secure their purchases, as locations are not held upon refusal. The Bafest thing in Hard Times, where people have been thrown' out of employment. or business. and possess some little means or small incomes, is to start themselves a home.

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 ization. 'A few.words about the quality and value of this lanu for cultiviition, of which we have some strong proof. 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 granary and some other out. buildings. Considerable part of the land was cleared for the plow at,.s9 an acre,-and on some of it the first crop was buckwheat; limed with 50 bushels in powder per acre. This crop may be put. in July 4th to 20th, and yields 20 to 30 bushels per net~ harvested in November; when the land being sowed with 15011 is of Peruvian guano and seeded with rye, yielded 12 to 15 bushels per acre and p 0 worth of straw. The rye:stubble turned. after knoaking off a large growth of oak sprouts, and dressed again With guano and seeded to wheat., gave 15 or 16 bushels. The crop which he was threshing while we were there promi ses more, of a, very plump grain, and the straw is very heavy. We went over . the stubble, and found the clover and timothy, from seed sowed last spring, on tho wheat without harrowing, looking as well as we ever ly' end cheap home in the eon atry, and who may read and believe what vie hare truly stated, he will da 'well to go and eee for himself what may be seen 'Within a two hours':ride o it of Philadelphia.
