S'PARTA NBURG C. H. Aug. 9. 1845.
To ihe- Editor ef the Mercury.
A meeting of the Carmers of this Dis
trict do Monday last, to take into consi'd
eration tbe state of the 'provision crop,
was most runerously attended. and frot
tie authentic.inforitatin then derivod,
our worst fers have. Ien confired.
The. provision. crop will rail short fully
tWo ihirds,- oan so far as we liad the tneans
of obtaitning. information, the opinion %%as
that the whole upper country is in about
the same condition. -The surplus of the
old crop- in Rutherford, Hender--in and
Buncombe. N. C.,.is in a great degree ex
hansted, by the demand from this State.
Our pieople are afready sending their
wdgons into Teblesseefo'r Corn. thereby
,necessarily enhancing' itd price to ruinous
rates, and uterly plicitig it out of the
power of the pooiedr laboring classes to ob
tain bread.- Many of this class are al
ready living by the ciharity which haos not
yet qiite- ailed-hut which must fail if
relief frotm some quarter is rnot afforded
them. The monied resources of tie up
per country are so near dried up that the
capital is not amongst us to relieve our
people. It is true they are emigr'ating in
droves, yet charity cannot sustain the bail
once. It will he impossible for your rea
ders to realize the excitement now pre
vailitig amongst all classes, or -to credit
without plenary proof the lamentable
condition of the farming interest. The
crop that is now making is alnost exclu
sively confined to the bottom lands-the
Uplal in many iplaces is so toial a failure
that litany are cuttintg nown their fields tt
save the stalks for -fodder. There are
hundred?isf acres that will not maue the
seed plamtd. I know mten. who int or
dinaiy titmes -are called "good liver<,"
that will not make as many perks as they
usually make barrels tf Corn. - Men speak
with fear and trembling of the prospect
bel'ore them-and those who have Corti
feel and know they will not long be he:ter
off titan those who have none. Starving
nieu never have been cont'rolled by reason
or the law, and we have no ri'ght to hope
thev ever will be.
Wkith the well ascertained fact of the
falure in the provision croo,. ad in view
of the invitable consequences which a
short time will develope-the tnen of pro
perty, the tax paycr3, have come to the
almost unainous conclusi'n ihai it is tihe
duity of tihe Stite to interpose its shield
oft protection against the tireatened en
lamity, it, tavor of its sul'ering children.
Spartanbutr has adopted the general pritt.
eiple of -*relief to the people," timnd invi
ted her co-sufferers to an'extression of
tf opiniosn and a prompt co-operation in
tle ieans of carrying out the principle.
No details have been oflo'red. No idi
%itdtal or sectional opiniloi set up for tihe
government of others. We trusi it tthe
parental feeling of' the State, as well as to
its wislotr. Will site see her sous and
datighters-the small fitrier<. fle botte
and sinew of the State. drive i into exil-.
or suffer them to starve ol her soil. Our
people trust not.
I have been reqnested by many respec.
table gemilemen to brittg the matler itefore
the public throuh the columns of tihe
Mercury. I an well tware that on tihe
first blush of this question of relief, matt
will treat the idea with ridicule, as ci-i
ierical, no tunecssary-inexpedien , of'
doubt ful policy or even untconstitutioual
but it' the country be ini 'he situation gen-.

Supposing that asme accotunts of' the
erops tuay be interesting to the readers of
the Journal. I take this occasion to say thtat
I have never knmowti thems as bad as this
year. From Milledgeville to this place.
the droutght has operated most injuriously,
both upon corn and cotton, and inteed ev
ery thitng.else. Not-more than half a cror
of corn wil-be m'adej and fron what I
can gather in the counties of. Monroe
Butts, Pike, 2ierriwether. and indeed it,
all Ithis section.of Georgia, not one-thira
o(a cotton crop.will be made. Many will
not mohe one-firth of a crop-some not
more than one-sixth, while none calculate
upon-making more than half a crop of
cut ton. Up jo the.. middle of June, the
crops of cotton' were never better, but
since then the drought has' caused- the
'squares, and in many -instances even' the
leaves, to drop, aud even if there shouldbe
a good season from this tine out, the in
crease would not be much.. I have passed
many fields of corn that did not look like a
hushel to the acre could' be gathered
while-he very best did not promise more
than 20 or 25 to the acre, An intelligent
gentleman-fron the Cherokee section ol
Georgia, informs us that the late corn is
now suflering much for rain-, and the pros
pect of an orditary crop diminishing daily.
I have seen gentlemen iroim the new settled
part of Aiabamaj.atid their ecounts are
ver) itte, il-au better than the above.
About a hall crop of can is made-and
farmers who have heretofore averaged 1000
to 1,200 pounds of cotton to the acre, do
not calculate upon getting this year more
than 300 to 4100, and (in the best lahds inure
-than 5U0'Ibs. to' the acre. One cannot
Put feel glooimy, while. viewing such a
state of things, and that gloominess is only
relieved upon the 'reflection that the ef
fects of the drought upon the cotton may
be the samne throughout the U. States, so
that the price tumay be enhanced, and 'the
farimer iay be etialded to got enough .to
make UI) for the quantity thus lost.

SILVER MINES IN NoaRm CAROLtIA.'
Prior to 1833, but liatle silver ore had
beea obtained from mines in the U. States.
Indeed it was not known to exist in this
cotntry in it.s native stale ; hut is mostly
contained itl the argentiferous lead ores.
fromitihich it was soneimes extracted.
Indeed it i-i generally extracied fram lead
ores; the annual prioluce in Great lIriiati
frotm these ores, is ,bout 10.000 lbs. valued
at some 14 orf$15,000. It seems, however,
fripoi an .article in the last number of
Hunt's Merchauis' Maxazine. that the
Washington Mining Company. incorpo
rated by the Assemtbly of North Carolina
in 1839, have been operating at the mines

The Washington mmtte, it seems, is sit

silver had beetn extracted-fromt the ore to
the value of $20,000, and of gold 87.253.
TIhis amnunit. of ore has produced fromt
about'160.000 lbs. of lead, maaking an av
ernae produce of over 240 ounices of ailver
to the ton, 4,000 lbs. of lead. From the

of lead, or galena, was first met with, in.
small quaniities; but the bulk of the ore
continued similar to to the 4Q feet level,
being a carbonate of lead,- with the excep

at the 100 feet level.
Arriving at the hundred feet level, the
galena prodominated; but, in other res-.
pects,.the tiiine presented the dame aspect
as at the 60 feet; increading in regularity.
. At the one hitundred and sixty- feet level.,
the vein is nearly all sulphuret, as regards
the lead, and the area is enlarged. It was
estimated that this argentiferous ore, lo
cally termed "the black ore," produced
on an average from.. $87 50., to $100 per
ton, in equal proportions as to 'the value Of
