There is one general feature in the' topography tf Pia wh
no other country in the United States pnuruaeesnd wg ieh'afftibA
great security to the health of the inhabisents. It ii; this; tht th6
pine lands which form the basis of the oounttry and whick arstel
mostuniversally healthy, are nearly everywhere studded, t inter-
vals' of a few miles, with hammock lands of the richest quality.
These hammocks are not, as is generally supposed, low, wet lands';
on the contrary, they are high, dry, undulating lands, that neter
require either ditching or draining. They vary in extent fronu twen-
ty acres to twenty thousand acres, and will probably average fire
hundred-acres each. Hence, the inhabitants have it everywhere in
their power to select residences in the pine lands, at such convenient
distances from the hammocks as will enable them to'cultivate the
latter without endangering their health. Experience has satisfacto-
rily shown that residences only a mile distant from cultivated ham-
mocks are entirely exempt from malarial disease, and that the ne-
groes who cultivate the hammocks and retire at night to pineland
Ssaidenoes, maintain perfect health. indeed, it is found that reML.
dences in the hammocks themselves are generally perfectly healthy
after they have been for a few years cleared. In Florida, the di-
eases which result from these clearings are, as stated above, gen-
erally of the mildest type, (simple and remittent fevers,) whle in
nearly all the other Southern States they are most frequently of a
severe grade of bilious fever.
Te topographical feature here noted, namely, a gegeral inter-
spersion of rich hammocks, surrounded by dry, rolling, healthy pine
woods, is an advantage which no other State in the Union enjoys ;
and Florida forms in this respect, a striking contrast with LouisTa-
una, Mississippi and Texas, whoee sugar and cotton lands are gener-
ally surrounded by vast alluvial regions, suject to frequent inunda-
tions, so that it is impossible to obtain, within many miles of them,
a healthy resident.
It would eem paradoxical that the malarial diana of esat
Florida, abounding as it does in rich hammock lads andetpoed
to a tropical sun, should general be ota d tch slider bm thoan
those which prevail in more northern latitudes. That seh, hiw-
ever is the fst, there can beno doubt, fortlbd fikr tv.d by an

The situation, of Florida, in the southern part of the temperate
zone, between two eas, the great Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf. of
Mexico, and embracisg six degrees of latitude and as many of lon-
gitade, appears to be the natural cause of the goodness of its cli-
mate, for, on the one hand a southern latitude exempts it from all
the inconveniences of extreme cold, so a maritime situation, and its
lying within the course of the sea breeze that daily blows across the
peakisula, is the cause that the heat of the sun in summer is miti-
gated by the freshness of the sea air, which in a hot climate is much
more salutary than the air of an extended continent. All America
to the north of the river Potomac, is greatly incommoded by the
severities of the weather for two or three months in the winter. In
East Florida there is, indeed, a change of the seasons, but it is a
moderate one. In November and .December many trees lose their
leaves, vegetation goes on slowly, and a slight trace of winter is per-
ceived. in the northern part of Florida, above 29 or 30 degrees of
latitude, there occur frost, but not very frequent. At 28 degrees
and below, roset is unknown, -and vegetation never ceases the year
round. Snow has never been known in the State. The tender plants
of the West Indies usually remain unhurt during the winter in the
gaidems of St. Augustine.
The foas and darkt gloomy weather so common in England and
other countries ;o much surrounded by the sea, are unknown in this
oomnty. : At .the equinoxes, Specially the autumnal, the rains fall
heavily every dy between eleven o'olock in the morning and foei in
the afleMorhe/Cr some weeks together: When a shower is over,
the sky does not continue cloudy, but clears, and the un appears

Dr. Torry says.: "Compared with the other regibhs of the Uni-

The limen orange, and the fig. fnd their genial tempr ture;, the
course of vegetation is unceasing; culinary vegetables acwcutivateM
in all seasons, and wild flowers spring up and flourish in the rdatlt
of January ; and so little is the temperature of the Iakeand rivers
diminished during the winter months, that onA may aknnet at any
time lbathe in their waters. The climate is so exceedingly ruild and
uniform, that besides the vegetables of the Southern Stesgenerally
maly of a tropical character are produced. The palmetto, or-ob-
bage: palm, the live oak, the ideoiduous cypreu.,-rand to le v'rietles
of the pine are common farther north, but the lignuh .vite, maheg.

In the garden of Mr. James Wilson,: in this city, can be seen ~ n
orange tree with fruit on it. The seed from which this tree grew
was planted by Mr. Wilson himself four years ago. A utmlber of
five-year old trees in diflfrent parts of the city have fruit on them.
Fine orange trees grow still fiirther north, about Fernandina,
that have ndver been injured by frost. The quantity of orange laud
in this State is almost unlimited. We do not advise new settlers to
rush into the cultivation in any place they may find cheap; first
make careful inquiries and take the advice of older hands who can
mhow "what to do and how tl.go about it. Every local agricultural
society should carry on the discussions, that every light may be
thrown on it at the next grand meeting of the. Fruit-Grolve'rs Asso-
ciation. .


This tree thrives lx"st in a rich calcareous soil. We have seen no
Ihier -fruit on the MediterrLnean than anthat :produced from trees
growing on the shell and red coquina lands of our Florida coast.
It will, howcvtr, alt,'pt itself to almost any variety of noil, though
if the ground is too poor,' it will be but a barren fig tree, and if too
,uolst the fruit will be of an inferior flavor. Unlike the orange, the
fig tree should not, he pliAted where it is at all shaded by other tre.-s,

r* From extensive e iperinitnts 'orelrees ad oliservations among
our neighbors, we find that there are no peach trees that do as well
as the native Florida varieties.
Very many trees have been imported into our State the last four
years from Northern Georgia, and from New Jersey and they have
been given a thorough trial.
The native seedlings excel them greatly. in vigor of growth and in
Searing qualities. A tree .once starters in. those colder soils and
atmospheres seems to acquire, and always after retain the habits of
slower growth and of the time of putting forth and throwing off
their leaves, peculiar to the latitude where they began life. Our
Street grow more in one.year than these strangers willing two.
For choice varieties and early fruitage, we have only to bud from
the few most excellent trees which may be found in every neighbor-
hood. We have them in the State, we are credibly infornmeu that
ripen the. last of May.:. .. .. .
.The best of.the Northern varieties may, however, be cultivated
here very successfully by, budding from the early aorts brought from
the North, although puny- in. growth, into .our vigorous seedling
Stock. In this way we get the Hale's, Troth's, Crawford's Early, /
and Early, Tillotsou with a.vigor almost equal to the.native: 1e i
do not, however, get these varieties to ripen any sooner than they
do at the-N orth.. .,i .-.r.',. .- *' .: .., .- -
.We should hesitate to risk our reputation-for, veracity with.our
friends in the slow growing regions of the. orth:upon a statement
tof the rbia facts as to the rapidity of growth of the pech- tree. in this
;latitude, .We will. venture..the assertion,, h(wew-er..ttatt we often

I will also state In connection herewith that this acre of land -p-
rred to aboyveJad one hundred young orange trees set on it at reg-
r distances pap rt,each, ofwhichl occupied a-space equal.to ten
et of row, 1,000 feet in all,; oo.nearly one-tenth oE an acre ;. but I
ve made no deduction therefore, because the plants or hills nearest
ese trees gave aucb .ap e.traordinary yield that I counted it as a
ole acre; these plants:sent roots:into the mulching of oai leaves
d grass around the- trees:and: produced from five- to -fohrteen
unds to the hill, and a similaryied was obtained from the ends of
cry row where the plants lad plenty of room. If by the proper
plication of the right kind tof manure. the land can .be' made:to
uce evenly at the rate we find in some places or spots,.we should
upwards of.400 bushels per acre ;- this is about one bushel from
enty-seven. feet., of. row,. Have dug .a bushel. fom twenty-two
