their new store on Second street, which
is one of the fitest business buildings in

The Splendid Crop Prospects.
Never before in the history of this
country have the crops given such pro
mise of plenty. The hay crop, one of
the most valuable, is now beyond the
reach of any ordinary calamity, and the
yield will be unprecedented. Our city
readers can hardly understand what s.n
immense gain this is to the country.
During the last season the farmers in
many rural districts saw the bottom of
their hay mows for the first time in a
score of years, and $40 to $50 per ton
were often paid in the heart of agricultu
ral districts largely devoted to grass
culture. The crops of 1860 was put
down in the census at a little over $19,
000,000; that of 186.i.by the Agricultural
Bureau, at 21.978,627 tons, valued at
$317.561,737; but the yield of 1867 is
likely to be over 30,000,000 tons, a gain
whose importance can hardly be over
The wheat crop of the United States
for 1866 is given by the Bureau at 151,
999..906 bushels, valued at $333,773.646.
The yield this season is still subject to
more contingencies than the hay crop ;
but the testimony from all sections is
more universally cheering and favorable
to the largest crolp than ever before in
our experience. The same is true of the
corn crop. '1'The yield of Indian corn for
last year was given at 867.946,296 bush
els. valued at $261,6653,29i5. For this
year the promise now exceeds twelve
hundred million bushels. Other grains,
and most of the fruits are equally pro
T'1he effect o." such a supply upon the
finances of the country will be almost
counterb,alanced by the grossest mis
managenment of national affairs. We
have seen a statement in print, intended
to show that it made little difference
to, the country whether the yield of any
specified crop was large or small, since
the price was enhanced by searcity,and
as much was obtained tora small return
as a large one. This sophistry is too,
transparent to need refutation. The re
lief to all class-s of laborers and producers
to be found in the overflowing abundance
now promised never came at a time
when it was more sorely needed. It
should be accepted with devout grati
tude, and a due acknowledgement of its
divine origin. No heart should be un
touched yl the teeming bounty which
breaks in so signally upon the general
desipodencdy.-X. Y. T ies.
