Messes. Editors : I had the good fortune
to bear the candidatesfor Governor at Bolivar
on the 3d inst., and was truly delighted with tbe
result. Mr. Hatton led off, and candor com
pels me to admit that be made the best of a
bad cause; but his speech was long, prosy,
and insipid, and elicited but little applause.
But not so with Gen. Harris, who did honor to
a good and National cause. His speech seemed
to wake up the people. It was animated, log!
cal, and witty, and every Democrat and Old
Line Whij;, judging from their looks, were well
pleased and satisfied with Gen. Harris as their
standard bearer. Mr. Hatton objecetd to being
called Know-Kothlng, and said he would make
Anti-American, &c., ring in the ears of Gen
Hy throughout tbe canvass. Gen. IL re-
carted that bis calling him these names would
' not amount to anything. " That a rose by
any otaer name would smell as sweet," cut,
as to their name, they assumed it themselves,
and he intended to hold them to it if possible ;
but they kept up such an everlasting changing
of names, he did cot know bow he would suc
ceed in this particular. From the signs of the
times I judge old Hardeman will do much bet
ter than usual. Success to your invaluable

For lis Memphis Appeal-l
Messks. Editors: As tbe business interest
of this stction is identified with the produc
tionsof cotton, I offer for publication in your
valuable journal my observation of the present
prospects of the grotving crops. The planting
commenced in North Mississippi at tbe usual
time, the cold weather set in tbe first of April,
put a stop to it, and the seed planted was
lost. The unusually cold weather continued
throughout April; the few first days of May the
weather moderated : the planting commenced
again and was finished about the 10th of May.
On the lllh, 12th and 13th the weather was
unusually cold, with frost winds blowing strong
from the North during day, and cold, chilling
nights, for a week after the plant was up or in
sprout, Tbe effect was, as soon as the weather
j got warm, about tbe 18th or 20th of tbe month,
plants commenced dying, and by me first or June
many fields had lost a stand, and had to be
replanted, and those that failed to replant have
failed to get a stand, and in many cases what
they have in their fields is unhealthy. From
the best estimate 1 can make, three-fourths of
a stand is a fair estimate for North Missis
sippi, and later by six weeks than an average
season. This may be taken to be a fair estimate
of the entire cotton region north of the 33d
degree of latitude, and east of tbe Mississippi
river. With a reasonable growing season and
an average frost this fall, half a crop is a full
estimate and generally low cotton at that.
I have been a resident for forty years in
cotton raising section, and feel satisfied that
I never have known the prospects of the cet-
ton crop at this season of the year as unpro
mising as it is at tbe present time, and with an
unfavorable growing season and an early frost
next fall, there will be the shortest crop ever
grown before to the acre in this section of coun
try. I have made this communication to call
the attention of those interested to facts from
which they can make their own estimate",
believing it is to tbe planting and business in
terests of the country not to make an over esti
mate of the cotton crop, but to be prepared
to meet the lowest estimate that may be real
lied. NORTH MISSISSIPPI.
Holly .Springs, June 9.
The Washington Riots.
There are some facts connected with this
matter, says the Washington Union, which are
1. There was a city election on Mo'Iay last
under a law of Congress, and there were two
Ue"eU regularly uominatej the Union and the
Kiiow-Nothing. That last year the Union
party elected the Mayor by a small majority,
and was likely to prevail this year.
2. That the judges of election this year were
all appointed by Ue Know-Nothings and they
selected tbe place of voting and designated the
mode and manner of receiving votes.
3. That Borne forty or fifty reckless rowdies
and bullies came here from Baltimore. Their
fare here and back was paid by one person.
That their meals here were all ordered by one
Eerson, and paid for by one person. That when
ere they mostly roamed about the city in a
body accompanied by Know-Nothings, very
many of whom were congenial spirits. They

treated them as associates, and marched from
place to place and noil to poll with them.
5. That a Know-Nothinr. havinir in his nos
session a brass cannon formerly borrowed from
the navy-yard, let Know-Nothing rowdies bring
it from near that place, and when the chief of
ponce drewits cnarge lie found it heavily loaded,

submit these to the thinking and well meaning,
and ask them to reflect and express their onin-

The Des Arc Ciluen, of the 7Ji inst., speak
ing of the weather, crops, &c, remarks :
The weather continues very cool for the
season, me bta day or June is nen-, ana
scarce three really warm ilavs have been felt.
The stands of cotton in Prairie, White, Jack

We extract thefollowing in relation to wheat
crops and weather from the Little Rock Gazette,
of the 6th inst
" Contrary to the fears of many, the wheat
crops, in almost every direction, appear to be
promising; aad when the fact is considered,
that there is, this year, a much greater quantt

" We must except from the above a small dis'
trict on the Ouachita, commencing near Hot
Springs and ending about the Magnet Cove ; as
we learn that, in this region, tbe wheat crop has
been almost, if not entirely, destroyed, by aome
thinglike the army worm.
" The weather has been cold, unusually so
for tbe season of Uip year. The cotton grows
slowly, and we much regret to say, Is being ef

The following in relation to "weather,
crops, and river," we extract from the Pin
Bluff Enterprite of last Saturday:
"Tbe weather for the past week has been
degree warmer than mentioned in our last is
sue, especially tjwards tne latter part. Tours
day and iricay are really me only days w
have bad any ways approaching that degre
of temperature usual to the season in this lati
tude. " We have carefully watched every item and
news from all parts of the State in regard to
me present crop, fromwnatwe gamer not
withstanding tbe long continuous cold weath
er, the cotton plant was never more vigorous
and indicative of a heavy yield. The crop of
this (Jefferson) county is very promising. The
planters concur in the general expression, that
tnougame cotton plant is small for the season
yet they never saw it looking more healthy and
vigorous. Tbe diseases iucidental to the plant
about this period of its growth, such as sore
shin, rot of the tap-root and lice have not
made their appearance yet. We therefore see
no reason to alter our figures of last week.
The cotton crop of Jefferson county will go a
high up as28,000 bales this year. The river

Corn was selling at Des Arc for $1 25 per

that there is not enough corn in Prairie county
to bread me people, iiiu is extraordinary
What has become of the corn? It is only
worth 90 cents in Memphis. Strange it will
be, if Arkansians have to go over to Metnphi
to buy corn. Some of this comes of the cot
ton mania. We always did like to see peopl
have prudence enough to raise their own bread
and meat, and not go mad after a utile cotton
and neglect meir grain and stock. But our
likes don't influence the farming operations of
our neighbers, and we are afraid our advice
will not be taken. But-' experience is a good
teacher,' says tbe proverb, and to said proverb
there hangetb a tail which, for the Bake of
brevity, we omit, We never hear of farmers
getting ont of corn here, unless they are over
taken by a mnch worse drought than they ex
perienced last year.

last year; and, indeed, we have no cause for
complaint, in regard to tcarcity for anything."

SPEECH OF GEN. WALKEK.
Frcza the Sew Orlum Delta
An immense throng of people assembled last
evening, on Canal street, to hear the addressof
Gen Walker ou the recei.t movements in Nica
ragua, lne balconies adjacent tbe stand were
tilled wiib ladles, while the street was crowd
ed with Nicaraguati sympathizers. The speak
er wag chtercd vociferously, and bis remarks
were received with great enthusiasm. We lay
the following report of the speech before our
Fellow-Citizens: I stand before you, not
to vindicate a cause, for it needs none. What
is just neeas no vindication., -mis concourse
of citizens and tbe sympathy here manifested
attest the interest you feel. But I stand to vin
dicate Americans and the acts by which an
American cause has been upheld by American
citizens. In examining the motives of these
acts, I ask you to discard all prejudices, and to
Biaiiu ucic i juu vtcic posterity, to juage oi
Mauy and unscrupulous have b?en the means
resorted to, to place me in a false light before
my countrymen. These it is necessary to re
move, aim i challenge my enemies to point O a
single act of mine which has been in violation
of civil, national, or international rights.
Cheers. I challenge any one present to name
any act of mine in Nicaragua which has not
been stamped with me seal of justice
There are those who have charged upon me
such motives as, to attempt to vindicate them,
would be a sheer mockery. There are those
who have charged upon me motives ot avarice
and mere personal gain. From such I scorn to
vindicate myself. The men who were with me
in Nicaragua my fellow-countrymen in armB
will vindicate me from the charge of having
entertained such motives. Bnt there are other
motives not so degrading at first blush : that I
was a mere soldier of fortune, attempting to
carry out my ambition, to make myself a name
and fame. This imputation I reject as equally
unfounded; and I hope to convince you that I
am not a mere soldier of fortune, risking the
lives and fortunes of my countrymen for the
sake of ambition. The actions of my hand
prove a nobler motive. If I have exerted my
self for any purpose, it has been to extend
American influence and Americanize Nica
For thirty-five years, a struggle for liberty
has been going on among tbe Central American
Republics. The civil wars showed that the
people were incapable of self-government.
Nicaragua was in a state of anarchy when I
accepted the offer of Castillon. I refused to
ad in open violation of tbe laws of tbe United
States. But I said there was no violation of
the laws of our country in their asking me to
fight in behalf of tbe Democratic party. 1
sent an agent to Castillon, to tell him that the
contract between us must be made accordingly;
that I had a invitation from Gen. Canduras
to assist the Bondurians, and would go there
if Castillon apprehended any danger from tbe
presence of Americans in Nicaragua. On
bended knee, and with suppliant tones, the
Provisional President of Nicaragua, insisted
that I should remain, and wished me Ameri
cans to be on his own side, for be knew them
to be loyal and true.
After my success on the transit route, 1 made
a treaty by which the presence of Americans
was approved by Corral and his party. I did
this to secure tbe good will of all. There was
not a Nicaraguan who could Bay, in the face
of this treaty, that he had not approved the
presence of Americans. Seven days af;er, in

that our policy was pacific, and that under

opposition was unavailing. They wanted an
American to speak the American language,
xou all know, fellow-citizens, how he was re-
ceived. None can paint the surprise of the
mcaraguans, because, on the plea of fierce
and JNIarcv, he was rejected on account of his
being born in the United States. I well knew
the result, and told them of tbe relations tbat
exiated between the United States and Nicara -

and cabinets that I had infinite confidence in

in which the little Nicaragua n schooner was
successful, will be recurred to with pride by
tbe historian, and tbe eleventh of April will
long be remembered by the American people.
Who of you cannot feel proud at tbe spirit of

It was reserved for Capt Davis to make
himself a party to an alliance with the British
and the mongrels of Central America to drive
his own race from tbe Is'bmus. He expressed
bis determination to seize the Granada, and we
were bound to yield to him. Yes, fellow-citi
zens, we were forced to make terms, and to
surrender to an officer of the American Navy.
Great was our indignation when we learned
that tbe Americans had thus interfered with
tbe American cause in Nicaragua. Why this
action of Davis? Because be bad received in-
structions from Washington. But why were
these instructions given It was because here
was presented the real Issue between the
