' I beg leave to report through' the
columns of your paper the result of
my - Experiments in the1 culture anil
manufacture of the Sorgho or Chinese
Sugar Cane : :-' ''" rI- -i
My experiments were made not with'
the view of reporting ; extravagant
results to speculate upon, but to: obtain
such a result as wo might in future
confidently expect from- an ordinary
crop of the Sorgho' grown' in : this
climate: "I planted the seed at yarious
times from the 10th of May to the 10th
of June, and not being very sanguine
of a satisfactory result I bestowed but
little care or attention upon it,' yet it
greiVfineh'uninjurcd by any'inscci:;
grasshoppers, etc., and commenced
ripening about 1st September,
Being' resolved tcr thoroughly '--test
its Sugar and Syrup making, qualities
I went to work to make a mill to crush
the canenot having the necessary
tooli.and .machinery to assist in con
structinV adll, I 'founti it in exceed-.
ingly difficult task to construct one
that would work. After several lalruT'cs
I finally succeeded in getting one to
operate';- w hlcli for the 'purpose of - e x
perimenrinVanswe'red; very well.. It '
was made entirely of wood, two rollers
10 inches in diameter and 13 inches
longiwith wooden cogs iaeacH to makei
them turn together, one of the rollers
projecting upt through the frame for
the attachment of a lever X drive- by ,
horse. ' This. , mill will crush out 12
gallons .of juice .per hour. , A mill
built'uppn a.tsimilar plan with - three"
rollers oi'. good seasoned . timter. , and
iron cog wheels, costing not oyer fSpj
would 'be amisly sufficient to w'ork 'up
say. five acres of cane per season, and
with care will last for years. . .
.Taking part of an acrcas a test to
experiment upon I found that it yielded
at the rate of 131 0 gallons , of juice
per acre which woyld make 230 gallons
syrun ; througn another test of .ajdif
fcrciit lot cf cane;52 1-2 gallons juice
yielded llt gallons of ; syrup. This
Syrup . -is pronounced ;;by all , who
have tas-ted it .to be, a, .very,. superior
article, , having - a verj. pleasant; and
entirely different taste from the Orleans
or. Maple molasses. , But, our .efforts
to granulate. it have so far been un
successful; it will not granulate by the
s ame process that the Orleans ; and
Maple,, Sugar, will. I attribute .this
failure entirely, to ignorance, Sugar has
beenrmade frpm it, .andwe. have only
to,.lefirn: therSecret of crystalizing ,to
make sugar from it, and ere another
crop is raised-we will know it. :
. , Apart , from., the .manufacture .-. of
Sugar or, Syrup the Sorgho is valuable
as a forage, crop, its adaptation to this
soil and climate, its growing perfectly
free from. the ravages of the .various
insects, grasshoppers, stc, which have
been so 'injurious to vegetation here,
the value of its seed, and the enormous
amount- of fodderit yields renders it
onesof,the iaost -valuable, crops we can
grow Kef e., :v. . . .. f

Sorgho, raised this season; also a barrel

illing off and;the stocks commenced
drying, another from cane after it had
been killed by the- frost, to test its
keeping qualities and ascertain the
precise time to . cut the cane lo obtain
the largest yield and the best Syrup.
The result together with some impor

of culture, manufacture of Syrup, etc,

i .Plicnoniiia of the Pressure. . ,
In the .balmy; - days of the United
States Bank, . commercial revulsions
and monetary' panics were always, at
tributed to the "monster" in Chestnut;
st.r, and deputations of merchants and
bank officers used to go on to Phila
delphia from New, York, Boston and
other citicSj'tQ entreat Nick Biddle to
afford the 'needed relief to the mer
cantile world.; lie . was regarded;??
the Great Mogul of the financial world,
aitd jva3! supposed to possess the power'
as he doubtless did to a certain extent,
o mak5nmottey'plantyorrscar'efeJ,' as
suited 'his convenience! .'Philadelphia
was then the central point of thefinan
cial world on this continent, ' and the
Bank, with its branches, was able to
controlifhe destiny;bf the -country.
Even After General Jackson had suc
ceeded in depriving it of its charter,
and it had no longer any connection
with the Government, it still was sup-:
posed to exercise the same power in
finances that 'it had done before,! and
Biddle w as still regarded as a kind of
Pontiff 'in the commercial world. - In
tho'great panic' -6f 1837, to which the
present pressure has been most absurd
ly likened a deputation of our : mer
chants: wa3 Bent on. to Philadelpha to
beseech Mr.-Biddle'to come here and
afford some consolation to our suffer
ing merchants by leiting'the light of
his countenance shine upon the dark
ness of Wall street. He came accord
ipJi' and' no monarch was ever more
graciously received -by his submissive
and admiring subjects than was -the
financial potentate by our business men',
and there are, doubtless, 'many now
wh'oTeel the'force of the 'preseht5'pres
sure, who were then among the crowd
that gathered around the Chestnut
street Gamaliel and derived comfort
and consolation from his promises of
succor and support. But a! little time
after, and Biddle, Bank"and all ; were
involved in one ctiamo'nsmash. j AVith
the fall of the United States Bank fell
also the financial supremacy of Phila
delphia, and New York became, by the
natural order of affairs, the financial
"centre:'6T the American continent.--13uYit:i8
a centre nvitBout! a point,Yan
Empire without an Emperor. I here
is no Nick Biddlenow to whose power
andjWisdojnftlio people can appeal.
Instead of a manager they haye a sys
tem, and it is only., by understanding,
sustaining and r trusting, in this that
they can sustain . themselves. .The
' '; "". n ' '' '' '.''.1 . iLl"
present nurry, tor serious as ine unan
ciai pressure nasoeen, we cannot rej
adopted .elsewhere, ..will insure us
against the".1 recurrence .of what has
"b'een. deemed an inevitable commercial
revulsion about, once' in. twenty years.
This city is noAv , regarded as the
financial regulator of the whole country.
Before Boston could determine whether
to suspend specie payments or not she
waited first to know what New York
would do; and. Philadelphia is now
convinced that if she had acted with
the same prudent caution ,she might
have saved, herself from the commerV
cial disgrace which she has brought
upon herself. ... r ,
There are several marked phenoin-
ena attending the present "crisis in
money-aliairs, which have never been
i.-. tj -'-- -i'iw.;-' '--'-. 'i
witnessed m.any previous commercial
revulsion, and one of the most remark--
able of themjs that, theJ revulsion has
come when .the entire country., is in a
condition . , of , ; unwonted prosperity,
when the great staples of the .country
are. more abundant than .they , were
were ever betore, and when the whole
nation has been literally flooded with
gold. The great panic of 1837, which
extended' over nearly five years", could
easily have been foreseen, or at least
accounted forby the merest tyro, in
political economy ;- the. breaking up of
a long-establisiied banking system, and
speculation .fictitious fland projects,
tho "great fire-" arid-.a succession of
short crops.- produced thq great mer
cantile disaster of that period..- Since
then we have enjoyed a succession of
prosperous., years, and the only dis
turbing causes have b9en the discovery
of the .California gold mines, and the
growth of our railroad system. But
these arc elements of prosperity, and
not of ruin - Our railroads have cost
us , something more than 700,000,000,
which has j been expended during the
past fifteen years,-and, a considerable
portion of which has been contributed
from abroad, and not been, repaid. It
is about the. amount that England
spent in two ycarsn her, Crimean war
for which she received not a-shilling
in return,, while, our, railroads, 'have
more than paid for themselves by de
veloping the resources, of the country.
Monetary panics haye heretofore been
universal in -.their influence, but ;we
now find certain classes; of merchants
who do not appear to have been touched
by., the pjmic.' , In. the list of the 'rer
ported failures, we do not- find, the
names of any. grocery; yet they form
a most important class of our business
men and their transactions are to very
heavy amounts. One of the assigned
causes of the superior stability ofj: the
grocers is that they give shorter credits
than other Jobbers, but the real cause
probably is that the commerce in arti
cles which come under the head of
groceries is limited to the actual wants
of customers, .while in dry goods and
ether- articles . of luxury there is no
limit to consumption.
,!;The present panic is ( mainly the
result of a timidity of' feeling which
would .r long since have - worn itself
away, and given place to a more confi
dent tone in the stability of our, com
mercial ; institutions, but for the two
accidents of , the failure of the. Ohio
Life and Thrust Company and the loss
of the Central America. -But the ill
effects ; of thee.. untoward events ' are
