is but a small portion of it secured yet and the
entire crop may therefore sufier great injury.
The caterpillars are ravaging the cotton fields
and nothing but warm dry weather will prevent
them from mukiplying indefinitely. The
prospect altogether is a very gloomy one.
The Winyah Obsereer of the 13d inst. says:
Our Havest Season has been a most tavora
ble one so far-ba: up to to-day a very scanty
portion of the crop has been gotten in. We
had a rain last evening. for the first in two
weeks-and this must have annoyed but little,
as it was but a shower. The harvest season
so far has been favorable.

of a malignant type--o-d the last two or three
years practice of our physicians make the
chances of recovery creditable to the profes.
The Pendleton Messeunger ottise 1ith instant
says: After one or t4o weeks of very hot
weather, we were visited on Wednesday morn

gale. It commenced raining at that time with
a cool easterly wind, and has continued with
short intervals since. and but little probability
of clearing away very soon.
