Thus "it is written," and we should ponder upon the lesson. We have urged our people to " plant corn," as their fathers were advised by Jackson to do, after the war of 1812 - 15, and themselves by Lee, after that of 1861 - C5. But we do not mean to say that they shall " live by bread alone." There are other things whereby man should live. The good book says : " Not by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." This certainly points us with a wisdom, which many centuries of experience proves to us that we must diversify our means of living, not only as to modes and occupa tions, but as to that which we produce from the earth, whereby we " live, move and have our being." Here, in this peculiarly agricultural region, it is tho more necessary and useful that we should diversify our agriculture. Wc are not a manufacturing people, thus drawing the moneys of other countries to us to procure their necessary apparel, or that whereby to build or beautify their houses. We are not a commercial people, through whose bands the products of divers nations must pass to yield us tribute. Such manufactures as we have, such commerce as we enjoy, almost wholly depend upon ana gamer toeir revenues trom our own people. It is a pity since we are not thus taxing others, that we are taxed, ourselves by others, that we are not altogether furnishing our people with such things as they need. As it is, we are substantially an agricultural and not a manufacturing or commercial people. It is, therefore, the more necessary that we should make our agricultural self - dependence perfect and complete, that oht meat should be raised on and from the pro ducts of our soil, that our fiuits, etc., etc., which we use as dessert upon our tables, should be gTOwn by us, and that so far as in us, and in our soil and climate lies, we should live " by every word," or living thing, whether animal or vegetable, which the God of the Harvest has given 113 to use. The truth is that in the past the Southern planter has lived and made money, whenever he has made it, in spite of the misuse of his land, and the means given him by Providence to be employed on it. The land has been wastefully worked, crops have been taken off that their proceeds might be spent in things which have melted in their use, or have gone to enrich other lands, and the net wealth of the State has decreased rather than increased; whereas, every year the land should have grown more and more valuable, and the independence of the planter more and more 6ure. We still urge the farmer to plant corn rather than cotton or sugar or other crop for sale ; but by no means corn alone, or he will, with his corn, be in like condition as he Las been with his cotton. Do not try to live by bread alone, but by every other thing which your land will produce. Eai?o a little of everything ; keen vour tables bountifully supplied and have a surplus at all times for sale. Be planters and vendors of cabbages, potatoes, turnips, beets, onions, oranges, strawberries, pears. peaches, pecans, butter, chickens, eggs, mutton, beeves, wool, cotton and sugar all alike. Encourage no factor to exDort vour business who turns up his nose at your small crops. If he be too proud for this, get some one who " will condescend to men of low estate." He deserves to break if he cannot thus condescend. Even if you cannot make some of these things as profitable in the sale of them as others, you will in the use of them, and they will bring you many a handy dollar in the dull and comparatively discouraging portions of the agricultural year. pecial to the New Orleans Picayune.

Impeachment Trial Conclusion of Jjudge Nelson's Speech. Washington, April 21. Nelson continued, (quoting Boutwell,) that the advice of Cabinet officers was that of serf to their lord. Nelson reminded the managers that they had put in evidence a message which showed that their friend Stanton had proflered the advice thus characterized. Nelson proceeded to consider the charges separately. He maintained three propositions : That the tenure of olhce bill was void ; that Stanton wa not covered by it, and that even if valid, and covers Stanton's case, tbe President was not guilty of crime, because he acted from laudable motives. Nelson sustained the President power to make removal by a great number of quotations from laws, debates and opinions of judges, and acts of Johnson's predecessors. Nelson discussed the peculiar relatione between the President and the Attorney General established by the constitution and elaborated by the laws. The legal opinion of the Attorney General must have the weight of a judicial decision in guiding the President, who is olten unskilled in the law and without leisure to examine the bearings of acts of CongTesa Nelson quoted Jefferson and Jackson, both of whom went beyond Johnson, in claiming the right to disregard laws which they deemed unconstitutional. Nelson's defence of the President's freedom 01 speech is regarded as very happy. The speech occupied seven hours in delivery. Washington Items. Washington, April 24.
