Cultivating liquorice in Texas.

--The San Antonio (Texas) Ledger, says that a Mr. Poinsard, of that city, has been eminently successful in the culture and acclimation of liquorice root, which he had imported from France. Of all the plants imported, one alone survived. So luxuriant was its growth that it radiated, notwithstanding the drought, covering the ground for a circumference of fifteen feet, proving that irrigation is not necessary to its successful growth. Indeed so successful has Mr. Poinsard been, both in relation to its acclimation and culture, that he looks forward to the liquorice root becoming speedily an article of extensive export from Western Texas.
