Gr.ipe culture is Bxtrading Gaftra rspidly than I am a strong advocate lor luising grapes ns'vely from seed, but not Irom the seed of foreign grapes, orossed with our native urapes, _.■ been recommended.

The berry was larger than the largest Black Hiimlmrgh on exhibition, though raised un-' der glass. In raising plants Irom the seed ot the Catawba,- grapes ot great value may be produced, and varieties wilhout aamber. But tha (paster portion will go back to its grandfather, the Tax ; and many of them of great l>cau!y of color, and being of large site. The fox grape is rrmfily dit-tin- hed by the extreme white color of the leaf on the under side ; and where a full-blooded fox, the stem wilt be covered with a hairy down. Where there is a dowu ihe plant should he thrown asiile as soon as Ilie r-lvn ■.'■:■:.■'.[. Where the stem is smooth, tf the leaf is white, it may produce a good fruit. Whei'8 the nod it side of the leaf has less or not more ofthe lex character than Ihe Catawba, a plant of valr.e 111:17 be expected, The commou fox .Cape, as the shin is thick and pulp hard, yields but little mii^t, and mout of them not much sugar, and kbetftfolft are not valuable as wine grapes. Where wine is made from them, I should put but 12 onnces of loaf sugar to the gallon. If a sv/eei wins la desired; 30 onooaa. It will have a good annua and flavor. I find grapes from the North, generally, when cultivated here, to possess le«s sngar than thoie Irom a warmer region, and in making wine North an addition of sugar before fermentation will insure good wine. Even here, persons profess to h ve a wine kepi sweet, and all fermentation pre- \ ented by a charm. I am satisfied that no grape will make a tweet wine without the addition of sugi.r, unless the grapea be dried'or tho must boiled. Fermentation Ib easily prevented by drugs, but are highly injurioua to wine, and [regret to see such wines lauded by persons who make or sell them. It is to the moderate latitude". w« must lock generally for our best wine and table grapea. Thus North Carolina stands ahead ot all other States. I have a new variety from that State on trial, that I deem may be of great vulue as a wine grape, but fear it will require a more southern latitude than ours. In another year if it equals my prea- u.it e-pectations, I shall bring it to puhlic notice. Increased grape culture will hereafter enable us 0 buy all the wiue we want of superior quality, iy paying an extra price; and I believe our 3till Cilawba, when of proper age, will rival the best pure wines ol Europe. II rny life is spared I shall ry lo prove it. To mannlact.ire wine of the best quality, requires great neatness and care only, anil s a- easy as to make good butter. The northern part of Georgia ano South Carolina will produce good wines, but may, like Sherry, Port, and Madeira wine.-', require some spirit (u be added. Deep, arched cellars, may be all that is necessary ; hut ihey must not expect tbe wild vision now existing there to be realized.
