the arrears of interest on tho five bonds
sued upon. Rut, wo suppose, this is
intended to SCttlo the point that was in

without an express direction from tho

This language seems too plainly to

of the ordinance shows clearly that this

The following letter appears in the
New "York Hullcliu, of Monday lust.
While wc trust that the writer's antici
pations of lo\v prices for cotton m ay not
be realized there is much iu the letter
that will interest our readers:
Mobile, August 17.
The favorable weather has continued
to greatly improve our cotton crop pros
pects ; from all quarters wo receive ;iono
hut satisfactory accouots, and from some
localities the plant is represented as
exceeding in vigor, developin int and
fruiting the very best years within the
memory id' planters. We hive thus
been carried into mid August, thu most
critical month, with every circumstance
to cucourugc the very bj.st hopes/and if
from now forward nothing Unfcseen
occurs, of a disastrous nature, and a fine
dry autumn ensues, not unlikely after
tho rainy summer wc h ive had, woahajl
VQ luubtt dly h ive an u t->n illy I irgo pro ?
duction. Oi coursouvorybody indulges
; in calculations as to what crop figures
IS74 may liu;:lly turn up, the favorable
estimate pretty much alt over the South
being 4,000,000 bales, and beyond this,
should wc have ? lite killing frost.
I perceive, from the report of the
bureau of agriculture, at Washington,
tl.-t U,C5U oo ? **r?a .... I t- Bul?irwV|o0
ought to yield 4, 00,000 hales iu the
i \ out of a protracted picking >e tson into
full time, taking late yens as a basis,
but that sotuo disaster might cripple-it,
so a? to produce but 3,700,0 I i u 3,800,
000 hales. Drawing it line between two
extremes, we have 4 000,000 to 4,250,
000 bales, which either favorable or
unfavorable circumstances will decide
! during tho Coming tour miulhs.
1'iling, then a crop which has every
appearance of Lo ng a bountiful one,
upon one that certainly has proved of
respectable dimensions, in not there eve
ry argument of plain logic in favor of
lower prices? This year wo have no
horse di>ea>e. or at leust there is no ap
prehension of one at present, and horses
ami mules tlo not fail us at a time when
wc require their nssiatanee most. My
expectations of low prices are fixed in ire
particularly upon the period InvirJsthe
close of the year, when we may rcoua
bly expect heavy receipts.
Our market lemaius quiet; the only
purchases making arc for account of
some lcniiatt houses in New Orleaus,
in qualities principally ranging between
ordinary and good ordinary, at from 15
to 10c. Our stock has now been redue
ed to 7,000 bales, with a most sparing
selection. N essels are scarce, and I fear
much that the extreme scarcity of sail
ing craf t will be one of the features of
the Coming campaign, inasmuch as tho
lack of available bottom is the geoera!
complaint everywhere for some time past
for maritime disasters during the past
three years have been more frequent
than is usually the case, and the ship
building that has been going on during
the interval does not till the gap thus
made by one half. The lumbering in
terests on the coast of the Cottou States
alone has became so vast that it absorbs
u number of vessels beyond all precedent
to carry the iueaeased production of our
saw mills on the seaboard. Now, it si
chances that this timber business soems
to be a most protituhle one, nnd that it
can stand even exorbitant rates of freight
thus $13 per thousand to Cuba, -Ml to
Texas, $14s$l(i to 1'hiladephia ami Bos
ton, and us much as $32 to Montevideo,
which is precisely on a par with |d. for
cotton to Liverpool.
Ex- Governor Button, of Alabama, in
a letter to The. South, says that the
dividend paid by the Augusta cotton
mills is ovor 20 per cent, n year. A
cottou mill at Petersburg, Virginia,
pays 25 per cent, a year. One at Co
lumbus, Georgia, pays over 20 per cent.
Tho mills in this State do at least as
woll. And at this very timo the Now
England mills ore struggling along with
small profits, and oven talk of working
short time so as to reduce stocks and
improve prices. The difference between
their focble and sinking condition and
the vigorous activity of the Southern
mills is accounted for by the "five cents
a pound" advantage which the Southern
manufacturer has in his tilt with New
