has ordered a mandamus to tho Comp

petitions and "suggestions" of Morton ,
Bliss A Co. In othor words, the Comp
troller is dirocted to fix tho taxation nec
essary to raiso a sum sufficient to pay
the arrears of interest on the five bonds
sued upon. But, we suppose, this is
intended to scttlo the point that was iu
disputo as to tho power or duty of the
Comptroller to fix tho rato of taxation,
without an express direction from tho
Legislature. By what procons of reason

sion, can bo only matter of conjecture,

Some ol the questions involved are not

upon any other issue* than those involved

That ground is: I hat the City of

rclators for the issuing of licenses to
them as hanks, or to issue the executions
against them, first, because the power of

Both the pleadings and the argument

That this aidinauoe assesses, and the

for tho purpose of raising revenue. In

This language seems too plainly to
establish uniformity as tho rule of taxa

tiik future of prices'
The following letter appears in the
New "York Bulletin, of Monday last.
While wc trust that the writer's antici
pations of low prices for cotton m-iy not
be realized there is much in the lector
th.;t will interest our readers:
Mobile, August 17.
The favorable weather has continued
to greatly improve our cotton crop pros
pects ; from all quarters we receive .tone
hut satisfactory aocouots, and from some
localities the plant is represented as
exceeding in vigor, development and
fruiting tin; very best years within the
memory of planters. We b tvo thus
been carried into mid August, tho most
critical month, with every circumstance
to encourage the very beat hopes, and it
from now forward nothing uuhVsccn
occurs, id* a disastrous nature, and a fine
dry autumn ensues, not unlikely after
the rainy summer we have had, w; shall
undoubtedly have an mindly lirg; pro
duction. Ol course everybody indulges
in calculations as to what crop figures
1874 may Bually turn up, the favorable
estimate pretty much all OVOT the South
being 4,000,000 bale*, and beyond this,
should we have a bite kil ing frost.
I perceive, from the report of the
bureau of agriculture, at Washington,
il.-t 0,650 OO ? M??s*> r cialtit.nloli
ought to yield 4, ;00,000 bales iu the
event of a protracted picking SOison into
fail time, taking late yens as a batis,
hu*? that some disaster mj^'ot cripple it,
so a? to produce hut 3,700,0Jd t? 3,S>)0,
MliU bales. I h awing n line between two
extremes, we have'4 000,000 to 4,-J?O,
000 bales, which cither favorable or
unfavorable circumstances will decide
I during tho c lining lour ui uuhs.
i'iling, then a crop which has every
appealance of Lo ng a bountiful one,
upon one that ccrtuiuly bus proved of
respectable dimensions, in not there eve
ry argument of plain logic in favor ot
lower prices? This year wc have no
horse disease, or at leust there is n?? ap
prehension of one at present, and horses
and mules do not fail us at a time when
wo.require their assistance most. My
expectations of low prices are fixed more
particularly upon the period tnvirJ-ithe
close of the year, when we may rcona
hly expect heavy receipts.
Our marke' i e mains quiet; the only
purchases making arc for account af
some icmian houses in New Orleans,
in qualities principally ranging between
ordinary ami good ordinary, at from 15
to 16c. Our stock has now been reduc
ed to 7,000 bales, with a most sparing
selection. N essels arc scarce, and I fear
much that the extreme scarcity of sail
ing craft will be otic of the features of
the coming campaign, inasmuch as the
lack of available bottom is the genera!
complaint everywhere for some time past
for maritime disasters during the past
three years have been more frequent
than is usually the case, and tho ship
building that has been going on during
the interval does not fill the gap thus
made by one half. The luinhering in
terests on the coast of the cottou States
alone has became so vast that it absorbs
a number of vessels beyond all precedent
to curry the iuoacased production of our
saw mills on the seaboard. Now, it si
chances that this timber business seems
to be a most profitable one, and that it
can stund even exorbitant ratos of freight
thus $13 per thousand to Cuba, 814 to
Texas, S14a$lQ to Philndephin and Bos
ton, and us much as $32 to Moutcvidoo,
which is prccisoly on a par with j 1. for
1 cotton to Liverpool.
Ex- Governor PaVton; of Alabama, in
a letter to The South, says that the
dividend paid by the Augusta cotton
mills is over 20 per cent, a year. A
cotton mill at Petersburg, Virginia,
pays 25 per cent, a year. Ouo at Co
lumbus, Georgia, pays over 20 per cent.'
The mills in this State do at least as
well. Aud at this vory time the Now
England mills tiro struggling along with
small profits, and even talk of working
short time so as to reduce stocks and
improve prices. 'J'ha difference between
their foubie and sinking condition ?sd
the vigorous activity of the Southern
mills is accounted for by the "five cents
a pound" advantage which tho Southern
manufacturer has in his tilt with New
