Monday last, although a cold and
cloudy day, brought a considerable orowd
to Sumter. Tho fall io the price of |
cotton, caused to some extent by the full
of gold, seemed to produoe a somewhat
depressing effect upon our planters. They
have invested heavily io fertilizers, et
prices based upon higher figures for
cotton and gold, and should tho tendency
to par valu3 of ourrency continue, the
margin of difference must increase, as
the price of golton must gradually sett lo
down to a gold basis, ar.d, of course, in?

very quietly, muoh inconvenience from

some most timely suggestions, backed
up by the necessary facts aud fig.

WHO IS TO' itt. .v ni Ii i
MR. EDITOR :-I have beeu so sorely
annoyed, for the past six or cigh
months,, by thc failure of my letters to
reach their destination, that I feel cull?
ed upon to mako tho inquiry contained
in the above caption. I have, six times,
forwarded letters to Augusta, and have
reason to believo that none of them
reached that point. I mailed three of
them at Sumter, one of which I had
registered, and thu other three at
Meohanicsville. Five of these letters
were addressed to thc office of thc Ban?
tu, of the South, and the other to a
private gentleman in Augustu, covering
un enclosure lo the sume office. Anoth?
er letter addressed to the office of the
Charleston News, and ono to the editor
of the Columbia Guardian,! feel moral
ly certain, also failed to reach charles?
ton and Columbia. Many private let?
ters mailed at Meohanicsville and
Sumter by me, in courtesy requiring
an answer, have elicited no reply, and
I must think that they went the same
way as the others. Who is to blame?
Postmasters, Muil Agents, or who?
The annoyance is intolerable. If others
suffer as I have done, thc Post Office or
Mnil Agettt system may as well bc
abolished. I do not wish suspicion to
rest on any innocent party, and I call
attention to this matter thus, publicly,
that thc innocent may vindicate them
selves, and the guilty be brought to bay.
A number of thc letters mentioned by
me contained communications for the
pre.??, on all of which full .postage, and
sometimes an excess of postage, was
prepaid. Thc bulk of these letters, muy
have induced the suspicion, that they
contained money. Certain it is, that
not one of these bulky letters has ever
been heard from
