against subsoiling, because it has
succeede,:I on one place as often as
it hasfiiled in. another. Finally,
after repeated experiments, it may
be ascertained that the difference
consists in the fact thlt one field
needed underdrainring, while the
otrier ,.rid not ; and thus, at last, the
very important conclusion may b'-
reached, that sctbsoiling pays well
where the land is dry, ibut that it is
useless itf the subsoil 'is wet. We
mention these cases by 1vy of illus-
tration ; and we might cite expelri-
meats in every department of agri-
eurtural and rural economy ; but
these suffice to enforce the idea that
experiments must be cautiously
conducted to make them reliable.

Bowlegs about to Treat.
We learn firom a passenger who ar-
rived here, on the' stage from Tampa,
on the 5th inst., that there is now. a fair
prospect of an immediate termination
of the Seminole war The Delegation
from the West had been into the In-
dian country, and being, unable to find
anything of Bowlegs, or his tribe, had
returned ;but soon made another effort
to find him out. On thle last occasion,
they had not proceeded far before they
met a bearer of a white flag. and soon
met Billy himself, with several of his
men. -Billy said that he was satisfied
with the war. as were most of his men:
but he wished to see Jumniper, who did
not go out with the rst of the Dele-
gation, before he could -.ay what he
would do. It is understood that Billy
antid Jumper have been at enmity for
some time past, and it is supposed that
if they can make up their difficulty,
the Seminoles will agree to go "West at
once-. Wc think the war in I'lorida is
at an end but would have no effort re-

R ailroad Meeting.
There is something which we cannot
\crstand in the following announce-
m1nt. which appears in theTampa
Pt.mnsuhr of the -27th ult though it
accords with a report ?ome time since
current in this community. A meet-
ing is to be held at Ocala, on the 1_th
inst., for the purpose of re organizing
the Railroad, Company formed in Jan-
uary last, but we can find no person
from Micanopy o'r viciniity who knows
anything about a meeting to bc held at
that place on the day mentioned. The
mistake, (and there certainly is a mis-
take.) probably originated in a remark
made use of in a communication from'
Fleming.'on, which we published on
the 16th ult, and front which we learn
that the writer supposed that a Rail-
rowd meeting was to hare been held at
MNIanropy on fbe-ftmt of March. -We
lipe this slight explanation will serve
to correct all misunderstanding on the
subhj,.ct before the day of meeting ar-
rives, and that. none will be disappoint-
ed on account of any false reports
which have go)ue out in regard to it:

We will not venture an opinion on
this subject, but would be glad to see
definite action taken by our people,
either to compel the Florida Railroad

them from the obligation and build it

While thus engaged, the son-in-law

To this was returned a tart reply, when
the old man asked an explanation of
his conduct. Insulting monosylables
were the only response. The old man
approached Mr. V., who was on horse-

Mr. V.. struck hiu in the breast with

every day. A similar movement com-
menced at about the same time in Eu-
rope and on the shores of the Pacific,

that all Christendom is awakening'to
grace. In this city there are, twelve
daily public prayer meetings of all the
evangelical denominations. There are
also daily services in all the Bpiscopal
and Roman Catholic Churehet These
services are attended by not l&as tliani
ten or twelve thousand person every
day ; theprayer meetings are crowded,
'and the attendance at' the Lenten
Church services is greatly in excess
over any previous year.' We read that
in ill the previous meetings "there
seems to be a desire to avoid all do-
nominatioual bias, and to make all the
women who come perfectly easy in their
minds on the score of possible offence
at their preconceived ideas." The
same zeal prevails the country, and the
sinners are flocking in great armies tb
