Wo have comliled from the census
of 1860 the following table of the

the differont Districts of the State,
and it is a very fair Index of tho pro
portionato Agricultural wealth to the
acre of the Nistricts at that timo, as a
careful oxaminati-i of the difl'oret
products and amounts to;the acre, will
convince any one who will study the
problem. The failure of the ric eul
turoc and the comparativ'e failure of
the culture of long cotton, of course
r'end(er the table an inaceurate comn
p)arativo test as applioablo to the
present time. Negro labor, too, is
now inore efficient in gomoe Districts
thah in others. With, this preface we
give the table, calling attention to
tho fact that Fvairfield District is proved
to be~ by/ it one of the bcst planeing re

Conafning our view to ootton alone,
the consus seems to prove t.hat Abbe- a
vileo District is the best cotton region ,n
ini the State, anfd WO IaOe bo a
informed, that an artiolo in DeBow' s
Recview, undertook, hofore thoewar, to tj
prove, by a careful exanmination of the a
statisties, that Abbovik)e was from
year to year, the surest and the mest
remnnerativo Cotton region in the (
world. We believe tho. theory a very I
probable one. Next to Abbevile, (
Fairfield, as a cotton growiag region, |
ranks upon an ennalkty wih the up. '.

,as tho i0gest, 27,000 bales ; of
larnwell next, 22,000 bales ; and of
lairflold next) 10,000 bales. But
ouble the area in proportion to eaoh
ale was plauted' in Edgefield and
larnwell. 8 that oiAr proposition
tands good, that considlered simply as
cotton groiwing region, next to Abbeville,

less for 1808. You will find by reading th:
letter, that I did not say so, for such a pos

crop of cotton for 1807 and 1868, up I
July 10, is 2,083,683 bales, and to the sar
time last. yeni', 1,4100,000 bales. I said th
