ThsE*EPFECTS OF THE VrOuST.
So long as it was at all probable that
the devastation occasioned to the planting
interests by the late frosts was restricted
in its area to Georgia and the adjoining
cottongrowing States, it was a matter of
selibus regret,gloom and apprehension to
the:planter of those States. But now that
it is fully ascertained that the frosts have
extended through nearly the entire cotton
growing region, and the destruction has
been general. ii becomes a <jesiion'wbeih
e- the latter will, in truth, be a calamity
or not. Accounts from every direction,
North, South, lail and West. conclusive
ly indicatc that all have endured a com
mon Nie, and that 'the coion 6rop of 1849
mtsi h greatly curtailed. That it will be
hnelicial to the plinters of ihe $outh that
it should be curtailed, provided that cur
tailment. is genera?. is a matter already
admitted. . It tas been admitted by the
assent universally given to the proposition.
that there has been an overproduction of
late in the cotton-growing States, that
more cotton has been made than was re
quisite to supply the-Ademand, that a di
minution of-production would occasion an
increase of price, aid that the farmer, in
case but half a crop should be produced.
would receive the same amount of mroney
for it, saving at home all The labor attend
not upon picking. growing. packing and
prepraing it for sale, and transporung it to
market. If the efects of* the late frusts be
a's general as we have sn)llose thetn, they
will have prnctically carried out the objects
of the various associations which "hive
been proposed frdtn different quarters of
ih'e South, for tie' purpose of secarmig a
ge'etail.reductioni ot the rop of cottoe.
5o far as the planter is concerned. there
fore, we do not see so much cause fur
gloom on account of th~e late apparent c..
Ianmity. It is true that it is melancholy
enough to see a promising crop,.just shoot
* itrgron the earth. withered and black
ened by frost. It' is like the nipping hope
in thabud. - Yet it'the vdasummati6n shall
be effected to which we have rel'ed, it
may be discovered in the end, that, as is
frequently the case with the dispensations
of- prvsidence, appnramnt evil is positive
good, sad what is thought to be a curse at
irst may prove to be a "lessing at last.
Nor, in .the view which we have taken
of the' matter, will the genetal pecuniary
in'ternsis of the'-South be materially aflect
ed, since the same amount of money will
be paid for her half crop of cotton.
As a Aenetral'thing we may take it for
g-aated that the amount paid for the cotton
erop of'the 'Souih, does not very greatly
vary,- from year to year. if there is more
produced the price is lowered; if Jess is
grown, the prico is raised --and a calcu
lation would show that the common stand
ord is reached at last. One thing is certain
-that over-production in the growing of cot
to -bpnefits no one less than the planter,
a tunder production injures all others

-.1has the price of cotton must rise appears

frost of the spring will tnot be answe-red (as
is generally the ease) by an early frost in
the fall, It is reasonable to believe, from
reports received, that much or similar will
be, the sat e of thtings throughout the South.
'The price of cotton. thterefore, must rise,

ARREST OF A dOUNTERFEITER.
We have just learned from a friend,
that Jeptha A. Doyle, the worthy Sheriff
of Pickens distict, vas badly Wounded
by a pistol shot in arresting a man ih Pick
ens district, on Sunday last charged with
passlbg counterfeit money, The circum
stanes as related to us *ere as follows:
two travellers, of respectable appearance,
and well tnounted, called to stay all night
at the house of Col. Jeptha Nortonj a few
miles above PickensC. H. In the morn
ing they each presented a $20 bill to have
changed to pay their expenses. &c. Cpl.
Nbrtin took their money and gave them
small bills, but did not exinaine it particu
larly. After some time, however, he dus
pected all was not right, and upon exami
nation discovered that the bills were coun
terleits. The travellers by this time were
several miles on their way. Col. Norton
got a warrant. placed it in the hoods of
Mr. Doyle the Sheriff if Pickens, who
summoned a posse, and made pursuit.
TI-ny came up with the men at West Union
12 miles above, wf6u upon being question
ed rs to where they lodged &c. the night
befote,.took to their heels. The race Was
codtinUed for some distauce ott horseback,
when Ieing plosely pressed, the travellers
left their horses. separated, and attempted
to escape through the woods. Mir. Doyle
pursued one, a-d onouempting to seize
him, the man turned on him and fred a
pistol, which took effect in his arm and
side, inflicting a severe. though it is hoped
not a fatal wound. Doyle's friends corn
ing up, ho was overpowered and taken to
jail. The other escaped. Tpon the person
ofthe one arrested, was found a large
amount df good money.
Since writing the above, we are inform
ied .thit Jivo *'eh, of a similar.descriptiou,

Mr. A. D. H enbree. of this District. a fe'v

crtf fire ias been heard nAuch oftener
than laual in our city. and in almost every
case where the risi' of very extensive dam
age was most imminent. In two of these,
on the wharves, where huudreds of bales
of Cotton are exposed; on the Neck, in the
midst of okl wooden buildings and stables
with hay-lofts, forniiig' material as ivell
calculated to feed a fire as any that could
be collected. This'morning about 2o'clock,
a fire occurred in a locality just of this
character. ~ It commenced in a store where
dry goods were sold, by a Mr. Cochran,
situate in Kinlg street, one or two doors

sumed instantly some eight or ten'woodet

stayed in its '-devouring" career by the
exertions of the Charleston Axrnn-sus

a limit to the flames when the wind not
being very high they subsided.

heard that one!of the fire companies, the

engine, the Hlose having been cut in sever

that the fire was the act of an incendiary.
