The Crop of 1871-?72.
Thc very low rates obtained for t?
cotton crop of last year, which was?
tivatcd under heavy expense, render.
it necessary that the present one shoo
be made, at low figures. For this pm
pose, commercial fertilizers were onlv pu
chased to the extent of about one-fourt!
the area in cotton was lessened over
large surface to the amount of one-sixt'
a full grain crop was planted, and are;
economy practiced in all expenditure
lhe early part of the planting season wi
very unsatisfactory over a great part
the South-west, heavy and continued rail
tabing place, preventing the proper worl
mg ot the fields, causing a luxuriant growl
of grass, and rendering it necessarv
abandon parts of the crop. In the Tao
northerly portions of the cotton belt, tl
weather, early in the season, acted mo
favorably, und the prospect for a full ave
age yield in proportion to the surface plan
ed was good ; but in June and July a s
vere drought in Carolina damaged hoi
Corn and cotton. Later in the season tl
complaints were more general, with repor
ot worms in the Gulf States, with rust
the Atlantic section, indicating a diminisl
ed Crop. The causes tending to reduce tl
crop are a more limited surface plante
bad weather early in the year in the mo
prolific portions" of the South, with
drought in June and July in Carolina,
very limited use of fertilizers, and gel
erally an inferior condition of tho plai
without reports of worms, rust, &c. Tl
deduction to be made for these causes
quite speculative, and may amount to 1,00C
OOO bales or over-leaving a probable cn
of 3,000,000 to 2.250,000 bales, the late
aspect rather indicating about 3,000,0(
bales, and with an early frost and bi
weather in the fall, this amount might ev<
be reduced.-Charleston News, Aug. 3

The Corpse in the Trunk,
NEW YORK, August 27.-This mora n
Coroner Hermann made a post morte
examination at the Morgue of the body
an unknown female, discovered on Satui
day in a trunk left at the Hudson Riv<
Railroad depot. The verdict was tl
cause of death from inflammation of th
bowels, brought on by abortion. Tl
corpse is evidently that of a young wc
man IS or 19 vears of age.
NEW YORK, Aug. 29.-The mystery i
the corpse in the trunk at New York
being unravelled, step by step. As ar
nounced by telegraph, the truckman, cam
forward and acknowledged that he wa
the man who carried the corpse to the d<
pot. His name was William Picket
His identification of the boy Potts, wh
helped the woman check th* trunk at th
depot, was the first step in solving th
mystery. The rest is told as follows :
Pickett says that on Saturday last, a wo
man came to his stand, on the co ncr <
Twenty-ninth street and Third avenu
and asked him to go to the basement i
No. 6S7 Second avenue and get a trun
of hers, which he would obtain by ringin
the bell and telling the people what h
wented. Then he was to put ii on hi
ti jck and bring it to the Hudson Rive
Railroad depot, whither she was going i;
a coupe. She paid him in advance, chang
ing a five-dollar bill to do so, and the;
parted. He went to the house, rang th
bell, and, the door opening, was usher?
into the basement chamber. There wa
no hall. Here he observed several womel
and a tall man, whom the carman de
scribed so accurately as to enable act?ij
police Sergeant Roonev to identify him a
Jacob Rosenzweig, whom he knew well
Acting Sergeant Ro.?ney then went ii
civilian clothes and loitered around th
CATTCRE OF THE SUPPOSED PRINCIPAL
The sergeant had bern there but a shor
time when Dr. Jacob Rosenzweig, the oe
cupant of the house, came from the direc
tion of First avenue. As the doctor ricar
ed the house he recognized the policemen
and immediately ran into Boylan's liquoi
store, at Thirty-seventh street and Secom
avenue, and tried to hide in a closet. Ser
geant Rooney was close after him, and
dragging him from his hiding place, lee
him'into the street. By this time a large
multitude, attracted by "the presence of the
police, had gathered in the neighborhood
As the sergeant returned to the street with
his prisoner, the crowd closed in on him
and the cry went up of "String the wretch
up to a lamp-post." The crowd becam
so demonstrative that the sergeant and
his men wer.- finally compelled to draw
their pistols and warn the crowd to keep
back, threatening io shoot the first man
who dared tb interfere with their progress.
Tho prisoner was then taken to the sta
tion, followed by a clamorous crowd, which,
by the time they reached the station, had
swelled to many thousands.
KNOWS TO TE2 POLICE.
The doctor has gained notoriety with
the police, to whom he is known as Dr.
Ascher. He denied all knowledge of th?
murder, and saidthat i'o was all a mistake.
Dr. Rosenzweig is a Pole. He came to
.v w York from Platz. Poland, about sev
en years ag?i and immediately comnioncctl
the Dractk-'- of medicine. He is :i mem
ber of the Eclectic College, on Twenty
sixth' strueti He is about thirty-fi vc y-.ir
old and very stout, with largo, coarse feu
tures. His hair, which is light flaxen,
curl-; tightly tu his heal, and is worn part
ed ii: the midd!" He has a wife and Bav
erai clifldreri, one an infant four weeks old.
Pickett said he believed Rosenzweig to be
the man who had given him tho trunk,
!mt he was not sure thi t he had ever stiel]
the girl before. The wi e, bethought, was
in the basement at the tune of its delive
ry, and asked him whee he was going to
tidce it. However, he was not very cleai
on these points.
On further cxemination it was found
that Mrs. Rosenzweig, w io first denied ah
knowledge (of the trun : business, said
very innocently that she was too delia te
to be down stairs oft Saturday when the
truckman called, but lustily correcting
herself, she again professe 1 totaj ignorance
of any such affair having transpired. In
spector Walling found out afterwards that
tae woman had been down to the base
nt* nt four or five times si ice ht r confine
ment. Dr. Rosenzweig h us two houses in
^which be carries on his business. Tl
' who know him say that ibout two year
ago he kept a lager beer s?he in in t
?.?ty, but probably not find ing ?tas pr ta
bleas he desired, he turned his attention
to the "practice" of medicine. H- H a

or manners, and does not 'tear the faint' -.

A thorough search of Dr. Ros :v/.w .
pr., raises failed to discover the woman wno
had caused the trunk to be check' I. Tho
house is still under surveillance: Roseiiz- j
weig has a diploma from thc so-called
medical college of Philadeh bia. The
prisoner is very reticent, ana denies ali
Knowledge of the altair, though the polio
claim to possess positive ovid ace of his
complicity. Inspectors Jameson and Wal

A notice came to Inspector Walling to
day, from the eighteenth precinct, thal an
undertaker had called at the stationbouse
and testified that a mau called on him a
few days ago and, wished him to bury a
body, which he stated was that of his ser
vant; also that he did not care how it was
buried, bot wished it done quickly, and
that he only wanted the hearse. The un
dertaker, who gives his name as James F.
Boyle, and place of business as No. o?i>
Second avenue, was then shown the doc
tor, and identified him as the man who
called on him and wished to have the body
of his servant buried. Boyle says he ask
ed the doctor fora certificate, and the doc
tor wanted to know if she could not be
buried without a certificate. Boyle also
says the doctors manner was calculated to
. excite suspicion, as he seemed fearful of
every sound. Boyle signed the above
statement, and declared he was willing to
testify in court at any time.

We have not thought.it waseitherplea
*ant or profitable, to bestow much time
upon the proposition for substituting the
name of Democrat for that of Conserva
tive. If tho present party was too large,
?md a diminution was desirable, the sub
let might be -worthy of serious considera
Hon. Or. if the party were too small,
and one additional supporter could be won
for it by tlie change, it would challenge
our favorable regards. But gentlemen
who urge this proposition should remem
ber that there are people in Virginia who
have-as little fancy to be called or consid
ered Democrats as they have to be re
garded as' Whigs. You may call the re
pugnance very foolish-and so it may be
-but it exists, and we have not time to
waste in arguing them out of it. As Con
servatives, they are ready and willing to
do their duty as men and Virginians
and that is all we ask.
But, as intimated the other day, we are
indisposed to merge ourselves into any
Northern party. We greatly prefer the
organization of a Southern Party-inde
nenden t wholly-free to act or co-operate
with any other pirty, but devoted first
last and" all the time to the welfare of the
Southern States. We have all the mate
rials and all the inducements for such a
party! The Southern States, under any
(air apportionment that may be adopted,
will have twelve more than* a third of tho
representation in Congress and in tho
Electoral College. United and harmoni -
ous, this would control the . action of the
Government. We have common inter
ests-one especially of towering and con
trolling influence, capable of welding tho
whole ^Southern population, black and
white, into one solid mass for joint and
common action. Slavery has been abol
ished. But slaven- has never been paid
for. It was a constitutional and vested
right, if there be such a thing. No gov
ernment ever confiscated such a property
and of such magnitude without compen
sation to the individual. It would be
monstrous if it did. and it would unset
tle and confound and jeopardize all other
rights. The bLcks can be made to have
the same interest in this right as the
whites. Tho market value of the prop
erty at the outbreak of the war was esti
mated at three thousand millions of dol
lars. The half of that sum might re
- the whites, tho other ' half would
us ?le the Macks, and pros-e a far more
ubstantial blessing than the imaginary
mule and forty acres of land."
We have no idea of pressing^ this re
! tmatiun at the present time. But it isa
.hot in eur locker, which we are unwil
ling to surrender, and would be ready to
use whenever opportunity presents itself.
A. Southern conference, either the conting
winter or at some future time, can arrange
the programme, tho mode, measure and
time for urging this claim. We would
not hurry it-it is a permanent bulwark
ind source of safety and harmony to all
the distracted elements of Southern socie
ty. Whenever the signal is given it will
bring white and black together, shoulder,
to shoulder. The North sold their slaves and
pocketed the money, and then confiscated
the slaves of the South, for what they pre
: ended was the public gond. They must
?ay for it. It is only a question of time
-and though wc are all, white and black,
very poor, we are not impatient. They
urned the poor blacks out of house and
home, with the delusive promise of o
mule and forty acres-and left them to
the. cold charity pf the world. The blacks
must be paid for their confiscated home
and right to protection.
But, as already stated, we do not urge
it at tho present time. We, however, .are
unwilling to abandon it, or jeopard its re
covery by disbanding an independent
party organization. That independent
party may save us, when all other expe
dients shall fail. Gen. Grant himself
might be willing to achieve a re-election
by according to us all and more than we
ask. At any rate, it is the best trump
out, and if judiciously played, may win
The weather is too warm for elaboration.
Hints must suffice. Wise men can take
and ponder them, and if there be good in
.hom. like bread cast upon tho waters, it
will return to bless us after many days.
We think the South should forego no
advantage which it moy possess. Tliat.
united, compact and harmonious, and ani
mated by a common will, directed to a
common end, can achieve more than if
scattered and confused, acting without
concert for no definite result. All South
ern mon, however much they may disa
gree about merging themselves into a
Northern party, anil undertaking to sup
port all ito dogmas and isms, might find
themselves agreed in this. A party, es
sentially, primarily and ultimately, devo
ted to Southern interests, but ready to

that nioit nearly approximates our views
of pu!'he policy, lt may be that the res
toration ol habeas corpas-the supposed
birthright of every American-now sus

and patriotic men everywhere who seek

Judge Abell, of tho First District

them to sell claims to his friends. Abell
says: " The Stat? Treasury was once tho

of her creditors has been literally turned

The following hopeful and encouraginp
irediotion of a good business year, com
nencing this fall, is from the N. Y. Fi
lancial Chronicle, which ought to be re
:anlcd as respectable authority. The
iromise of a defeat of speculating rings,
md a nearer approximation to thc old
tandan! of "supply and demand" in
he regulation of prices, is particularly
beering, as.that is a preliminary to the
ccuring of the just rights of the pro
luccr and the laboring man. The Chroni
lc says: "There is every probability
hat the year to come will bo nearly thc
everse of that now almost passed. The
peculator may not be able to make so
mich money, yet he will not bo in dan
cer of losing so much ; while the com
nission house, practicing ordinary pru
Icncc, may reckon upon having a year
?f comparative safety before it. In cot
un, the new relations of supply to de
naud are much better understood noo
nan one year ago, and variations from
he estimated supply are not likely to
iroducc the great fluctuations which
lave been witnessed in tho past year.
ihe excessive stocks of breadstuff* which
vere in store ono year ago, have been
?artially disposed of, and prices are now
t that happy medium which is assurance
f safety. Provisions of all kinds have
leelined to prices which are lower than
hose which have been current in many
ears ; and although tho demand is largo,
ho prospectivo supply is so largo that
peculation for a rise is discouraged."

strongly opposed to the Fourteenth and
Fifteenth amendments as ever. He de
nounced the reconstruction measures of
Congress, claiming that all thc recon

DTTBLINV September 4.-There was
iercc fighting all night. The police

lived reinforcements and charged the
nowd desperately. They were driven
into.the barracks again. Tho sally was
repeated several times, but with the
?ame result. A bar of iron which was
thrown from a public house at the
police, led to the storming of the house,
and, capturing its inmates, an attempt
was made to rescue them by the mob.
In the battle which followed thex house
was completely wrecked by the mob in
its frantic rage. Half of the policemen
engaged in tho affrays wero injured.
Prisoners sang national songs all night.
There is great excitement, and it is in
SANTE FE, September 3.-The Post, of j
yesterday, had the following correspon
dence from the Larnsella election: "The
excitement in this village culminated to
day in the wortt affray ever witnessed
here. It is nc exaggeration to say that
the plaza hai been literally drenched
with human Hood. At the present wri
ting (Sunday Bvening, 27th), it is known
that seven parsons have been killed,
while it is estimated that tho wounded
will reach as high as thirty-seven or
eight of whom are fatally injured. From
5 this afternoon .till 6, tho plaza resound
ed with pistol shot and groans. For 15
minutes the firing was incessant, and
continued during the rest of the hour.
The RepnbUcanjand Democratic parties
had each .selected to-day as the most
suitable time for the ?rand demonstra
tion of the campaign,, and at an early
hour this morning both parties commen
ced th eir preparations. The leaders were
evidently desirous of avoiding distur
bances. The respective parties formed
in procession and passed each other's
place of meeting without any outbreak.
Nothing happened until the meeting had
adjourned. At 5 p. m., both parties met j
in the plaza, when a pistol shot was
fired, whereupon ageneral fightoccurred.
Men, women and children hurried to
their houses, but the fight was kept up
from windbws and houses, tho dead and
wounded falling on all sides. Hon
John Lemon. Republican candidate for
Judge, was the first killed; the killed
and wounded are mostly Mexicans. An
other fight took place at Antorichico,
near Losvegas, in which two persons
were killed and six or seven wounded.
The people arc terribly excited here, but
every th i ng is being done to preserve peace
and good order."

#SS^ Another Terrible Calamity has
overtaken tho unfortunate Island of St.
Thomas. A hurricane and earthquake
recently prostrated almost all the houses
on tho island and made nearly six thou
sand persons homeless. No more dread
ful commotion, of the elements can be
imagined than the disturbance which has
thus afflicted St. Thomas. The island
bas been so frequently devastated by
earthquakes and storms that it may be
considered well nigh uninhabitable. Cer

iS>-The Washington Republican has
quite a sensational article under the head
" Martial Law to be Proclaimed in Spar
lanburg and York Counties, South Caro
lina.'' This action, it is said, is urged by
Senator Scott, the Chairman of the Joint
Congressional Committee, which visited
this State, and who claims that President
Grant should issuo a proclamation and
station military forces in these countios,
to ensure the execution of all orders.
And it is quite probable that martial law
will bc established in Spartanburg and
York Counties, but to any people accus

GOOD FOR GEARY.-Gov. Geary stands
to his ground as to the bayonet election
law. " If Grant don't like my position,"
he remarked the other day to an inter
viewer, " I can't help it." As the Gov
ernor of this Commonwealth, I was bound
in my message to allude to that, and to
condemn the action of the general Govern
ment in using the marines at Philadelphia
during the election of last year. I don't
believe in that policy, and "I never can bc
rifade to believe in it. Had I the power.
I would give the South universal amnesty.
Then 1 would say, ' You are put upon
your good behavior. Hold your elections
in your own way. Elect your own candi
dates. Let the electious" he conducted
fairly. If you are not able to maintain
order, let your Governors or legislators
call upon me, and 1 will back them with
the whole strength of the Govcrrment.' I
believe that would have done more to se
cure peace than anything else. You can'i
govern (his people with the bayonet.
Whenever it conies to that, the Republic is
a failure, and wc had hotter confess it."
