THE COTTON CROP OF TEXAS,
[From the Salves ton Raws, inly 28th. ]
"July makes the cotton crop," is a com mon
saving among planters. Sinoe 1863 we have
not had it dry, ox comparatively so, in the
month of Joly until now. The rain oeaaed on
on the 5th of the month, and up to the present
time, with the exception of an occasional
shower during the past week, ibo weather has
been hot and dry. The progress cotton has
. made In growing this mooth has been most
marked, and we expect , to heat of picking
bein? general at least two weeks earlier this
season than last. The total failure of the crop
in our coast counties io 1867 was attributable
more ' lo the excessive and continuous rains
winch -fell in Joly and August than to the rav
agesxof the caterpillar. Reports come to us
from tbe country of the appearance of this
cotton destroyer m many sedttoos; but we do
not fear hts assaults while the weather, as a
general thine, continues lair.
Lai t year's otop is now al) in and disposed
of, aggregating some 183.000 bales at this
point. The principal chaunel through which
our receipts have come is tho Central RaiUoad,
which broogut down some 90 OOO bales since
the first of September hst: patting the receipts
by boat from the Trinity River at li,500 bales,
and from Sabine, Indianola and La vaca at 5500
bales, would lea e 23,0- 0 for toe Harrisburg
and Columbus Riad. Makiugampleallowaaca
for the damaire to the crop on the Colorado
from tbe overflow, we expect to see the re?
ceipts by this road the coming season doable
what tbey were last. A tall crop to the acre?
age, throughout the region tributary to Galves?
ton w?.old swell our receipts to 200.000 biles for
1869-70-but as already stated the crop io the
West bas met with a severe backset fr m an
unexpected source, and taking int .? account the
liability to injury, from varions causes, ot
this product, we may assume that 150,000 to
175.000 bales will be nearer a correct estimate.

10 TQB EDI TOB OF THE NIv?J.
Some animation seems pervading the lone
lethargic people of Beaufort, and onr people
axe not over-willing to pay tue arbitrai y de?
mande of the s'rangor wbo introduced himself
as .Keownty Treasurer." 8oms ot the instan?
ces of excessive taxation m the midst of us are
somewhat striking. Ono of tbo most highly
honored or our citizens anncuoeoI "this un?
righteous tax" to be triple what he had over
paid on bis several thousands of acres when
productive, and the slaves that made them
so. Aooher, a good honest farmer of very
limited means, rendered nervous by the as?
sessment of bis land, sold at that price
before the august treasurer announced veri>a
b'e t:xilion, witb the Stipulation that his pur?
chaser should pay the tux. In good limo the
rcprcre.itauve ot the powers that be, make?
his astounding announcement to tho anfortu
11 a t-e purchaser at double the price paid for the
land. Xbese things startle some of us. Aod,
b jside these general evil*, the planters of the in?
terior are contemplating being "haled bet?re
the Judge" Kr a fortnight's term at the Town oj
Beaufort with elongated visage. And well they
may at this soasan, for somo co from neigh?
borhoods six'y fivc miles distant, with?
out any but private transportation. This
pricking imposition has united Upper
Beaufort and Southwestern Barnwell, which
sections consider themselves similarly aggriev?
ed by the removal of the old district
seats of justice, A mass meeting is called toi
10th mst., to consider, on middle ground
the bert means by w lucia to OD; ai a the expe?
ditious formation of a new county, comprising
thoso sections, aud to be called Caosawba tobie
lt is there understood that the interest and
influence of the several county officer* of
Bevufort are thought by the incumbents to be
seriously involved, and therefore opposed, un?
wholesomely, to the ire3 action ot our legisla?
tors. The prevailing idea is to have a court
boase at a central point oo the line of the Port
Boyal Railroad, :f at a meeting of that com?
pany next week a president is elected, in whom
the people oan fe 1 a confidence, and there ap
pear any immediate prospect for the compie
tion ot the road. Much is expected from
that enterprise under the > direction of
some man of financial strength and
daring, and of an influenoo with Western
railroad connections-if such an one oan be
reached. Then we can extend cordial invita?
tions and offer some inducements to John
Chio.amai>, about which many are eche.tous

true, it ia very commeniable ia the gen?
tlemen of tba dub to hivj carefully
and patiently investigated tbe case and then
to take so decided a position as that indicate J
by the dame. Thoso shops of snob diarepata

tion of the contract system of labrar, much too
numerous for the welfare of planner or negro,

adopt this wholesoms measure earlier. We

with great foros of argument, tnat the bo
suffrage qualification would be "ability to rei

Witb this as a universal qualification test in :
Federal and State elections, the ballot-bt
wonld be protected against ignorance, and, I
a very large extent, against-the possibility i
the brazin impudence of this sugeostit
(from such a source) cannot be sufficiently a

tho anther meant the ballot, but his phrase
literally correct)-"into the bands of the iga

preferred as sufficient to correct the evil is "i

Ur, as affording a obeck against that control o

now dreaded in the future by our wisest states
The confession by an organ of tbe adminis
(ration that the fundamental action of the Rad
leal organization, "if continued, cannot tail tr
lead to very serious, if not disastrous results,'
is important, and will be hailed as "tbo ring o
true metal." Yet the remedy suggested ("be?
yond looking to tho disfranchise mont of some
white voters,) isa mere "running around Robic
Hood'* barn." Wty not repeal the Rocon
strnctio'i laws-allow the Southern States tc
alter their constitutions, eniorced upon thea
nt the point ot tbo bayonet, and reject the Fif
teeni h n rj.oadment ? These measures, ( if cou?
pled with prudout alterations of our naturali?
zation laws applicable to the Chinese and other
1'agan immigrante,) would effectually afford
"a check against that control of the ballot-box
by ignorance and corruption," which has been
inaugurated by Radical rascality, aud now bit?
terly complained ol by their leading presses.
It will be seen that our government has been
foiled in its attempt underhandedly to buy
Cube. Some ot the Northern papers assume
to give the precise instructions furnished to
Sickles. At tbs time of his departure, and
even b lore it, the Administration doteimice3,
for reasons then tully stated, to throw cold wa?
ter upon tho movement for Cuban indepen?
dence, unless annexation and Radicalism was
sure to follow in its train. Hence, the vigorous
enforcement of our neu rali tv laws, and tho at?
tempt to purchase the island. The xumor now
is that tho Ccspodes "Government" bas (after
a fashion ) toed tbe mark, and given the neces?
sary assurances of ' loyalty." Hence, it may
be, that Spain herself may bo made to ex?
perience the cooscqti stress of daring to violate
our sacred neutral law*. There cannot, how?
ever, nf course, bo any "recognition" yet,
though for a very different reason than that
assigned in Northern dispatcher. Mr. Fish
has very little respect far tho ridiculous point
made by Sumner that such a course would
complicate, our relations with England ia re?
spect to tho Alabam i imbroglio.

It is said to-day that his Excellency peremp?

DEEP CULTURE EOE COTTON.
Tbc Method and the Benefit.
The following letter to tbe Macon Telegraph,
from Mr. 8. 1. G?stin, a prominent and suc?
cessful cotton planter of Vineville. Georgia,
will be read with interest by everybody inter?
ested in the cultura of oar great staple :
V IKEY ru. E Augnst 4.-I feel embarrassed
by the prominence which baa been given my
cotton patch in (ho Telegraph, as yon are
aware that I bave no taste tor a public contro
[ veray with those who advocate a different cul?
ture! But as you and some ot your readers
seem anxious to get more information about
it, I will try lo describe, as briefly as possible,
my method of culture on this patch.
I am thoroughly convinced, tro m experience,
that the benefits of deep ploughing in winter
and spring are IOBI, toa great extent, if it is
not followed ap by deep calf ure afterwards.
Becauss the ground soon becomes bard and
compact underneath, if only thc surf a co soil is
cultivated in a Bnailow mano ?r; the disadvan?
tages of which I will speak hereafter.
The cotton patch in quent 100 is on a gentle
slope of a red hill, and more soil bas been
washed from it, to the ianda bolow, than bas
been washed upon it from those above. It is
tree from stones and stumps. Bat was nearly
as hard as a brick when it waa pion?ned for
the flr?t time in the early part of May. last.
Bet?re ploughing. I sowad apon it broadcast
' Gustm's Super-pit'.'spuiie." at the rato of 500
pound-* par acre. With lour ni rx'ts to one ot
Bnuiey'a largest sised prairie ploughs it nos
ploughed eight inches d?op-followed in the
same fnriow by a subsoil plough, running
swerve inches deep. Hie same quantity of
supei phosphate was again sown broadcast and
harrowed in. The soil was thu3 protty thor?
oughly pulverized and (disintegrated to the
deplb ot oigbteea or twenty inches, and en?
riched with tfupeiphosphate at tbe rate of 1000
pounds per acre.
You will say that that is pretty expensive. Bat
I will venture to say that this land will pro?
duce quito its much cotton aud as much corn
as the brit land ott a plantation in Floyd coun?
ty which sold for $100 per acre a tew weeks ago.
AtVr harrowing it was checked off with a
small p;ough 3x6 feet in widen the seed were
phmte J-a singlo plant only was lett to a bill
and covered wu b a hoe, which was the only
work doue with a hoe-as the subsequent cu '
ture was doue entirely with- MapeV Subsoil
Lifter sod a horse hoe. It has boon onltira'ed
fonr times with the subsoil lifter and twice
with the horse hoe.
Tbis subsoil lift r is made of wrought iron
is light aud can easily bs drawn by a single
mole or horse where the ground ha* kwen pre?
viously subsoiled. From its peculiar construe -
tioj it turua no furrow, but works under tbe
round like a mol*, to th? depth of about
fteen inches, slightly raising the soil aa it
moves along. The soil in falling back is pul?
verized at least a foot on either tide of its
The horse boo is an improvement on the cul?
tivator and effectually destroys sll woeds and
thoroughly pulv?risas the aurfaoe soi1.
At the first working of thc cotton the subsoil
liner was ran four times between the rows tbe
wide wav-three times the second-twice the
third timo-aud once at the last working, run?
ning as olosaly as possible to the plants every
lhere is no danger of destr.ying or injuring
the roots oy this method of culture it the
plough is not run so near that the swiagle-troe
breaks the branob.es -on the contraxv. it is the
very best preparati m for the rapid multiplica?
tion and extension of the small fibrous roots
whioii are the feeders to tbe plants.
This deep culture must be kept np from tbe
beginuing. If the roots are prevented from
growing downwards by the hardness and pov?
erty of the soil below, and are forced to extend
themselves only near the surface, deep plough?
ing, nuder such circumstances, would undoubt?
edly mutilate th iee roots, to the injury of the
pl&ut and cause it lo shod ita fruit.
This COttun IS now Ubont ov^od . half feat
bitrb, and where tho stand is perfest, th?
branches meet m overy direction, and arc so
heavily Inden wilh fruit that some of the
branches are splitting off with the weight.
It was plauted on tbo 9th of May, and has
grown rapidly from the start. Il was not in?
jured ia the feast by the drought, and at that
time not a single fallen boll, square or form
could bo found. Since the rains i have noticed
a few fallen G quites. Plants growing on a foil
cultivated so deeply eau hardly bc injured by

lt must be remembered that the atmosphere
is the great store-bouse from winch plants do
rivo at least nino-temhs of the substances of
which they are oomposed. Ammonia is con?
stantly escaping into the atmosphere from de?
cay IL g animal and vegetable matter. Car borne
acid gas and water are largely diffused in thc
atmosphere, and the hotter tho weather the
more water is held in suspension. We all know
how large n, portion of a tree is charcoal or
carbon, and that when it is burnt and combines

into tbs atmosphere-bow httle ie lett bobine!
as a residuum. Tbat little is the product of
tbe soil. What has disappeared is substance
derived from the atmosphere.
Now, it the soil be deeply pulverized, so as
to al ow a free circulation of tbe atmosphere
thiough it, tho watery vapir is condensed by
coming into contact with tho cool eu ts tra tu no
of the earth, on the same principle that the
atmosphere condenses upou tho sides of a
pitcher filled with cold water npon a warm
mid-summer day-thus supplying the roots
with moisture holding ia solution these fertili?
sing gases which tho atmosph?re contains, so
necessary to the growth and development of
tho plant, and in tins condition BO readily to
be taken ap by its roots and fibres.
Besides ali this, those atmospheric gases
and water make f olublo and a food for the
plant other substances in tho earth, winch
without thom would remain insoluble, inert
A deeply pulverized soil has still another ad
vantngo IQ dry weatbor. lt draw* np the
moisture from below, upon tho principle of
capillary attiaotion, which may bo illustrated
by holding a lump of loaf sugar part way im
merced in your cup or coffee. The su ?ar will
immediately draw up tuflkiont of the liquid to
become saturated with the moist uro.
All tboso advantages aro greatly diminished
or entirely lost in a bard, compact soil. When
tho rains tall-impregnated with these fertiliz?
ing gases-if tho soil bo deeply mellowed and
porous, they are absorbed at once and pene?
trate to tho roo.B of the plants, with their rich
burdon of lite and health. But if only the f-ur
ta:e is mellow, and tbo ground bj sloping or
hilly, most of who rain rnns off, carrying with
it much of the surtaco mould into the streams
below, ?u the other hand, should tho ground
ba level it lies jpon tho surface till evaporated
by tho san and tho conching gases escape
agnin into the atmosphere which should bo ap?
propriated by the crop.
Water which hos upon tho 6urfac3 till evap?
orated by the sua makes the gtouod cold. It
takes the boat from it to convert tho water into
vapor, upon tho samo principio that a roeni ir
sidewalk is cooled by sprinkling with water on
a sunny day. Finally, it the water remains
upou tho sutfaco long enough to Lecomu stag?
nant, it becomes so poisonous to thc plants
that they turn yellow aud sickly.

A. STRANGE TRAGEDY.
The Wife of a Prominent Boston Phy?
sician shot Dead in her Parlor in the j
Presence of htr Family.
? strange ind terrible murder took place in
Boston on Tuesday evening last, the particn
hrs of which are given in the Journal as fol?
About halt-oast ten o'clock last evening, Dr.
Alvan fl. Hobbs, wbo is an old and bichly es?
teemed physician of this city, rebiding at No.
1266 Washington-street, rushed breathlessly
into tho fifth station, and stated to Captain
Small that his wirV had been shot. Sergeant
Hawthorn was immediately dispatched to the
scene of the tragedy, and arrested Major
Thomas L. White, said to bo a resident of j
the State of l'ennesBoo, but for some time
past residing in the family of Dr. Hobbs
for medical treatment. This White was
tho author of the tragical' event, and w?s
brought to the station-house without anv re?
sist ince. The statements ot inmates of Dr.
Hobbs' family are to the effect that the mem?
bers, including the murderer, had taken tea
together in the most friendly and agreeable
manner, and at thc conclusion of the repast
Major White retired to his room in the upper
part of the house, where he commenced to
road aloud. Mrs. Hobbs proceeded up stairs
and inquired why ho read in so high a tone, to
which Wune replied : "In order to develop my
Jungs," or words to that effect Mrs. Hobbs
soon afterward co ne down stairs again, and
was about to enter the parlor, when, turning
her head m the direction of the room above,
she saw White coming down with a pistol iu
bis hand. She seemed to bo apprehensive of j
White's murderons intention, for she imme?
diately called out to ber husband, "He is
coming, and with a pistol," and almost
simultaneously with this ejaculation tho
first shot from ?be assasin's pistol le
souoded through tbe house. This shot
proved ineffectual ?a fa as striking
the murderer's viotim v. :;n;erned, who rm
media ely closed the d: jr-dtwaen herselfand
White. Bat, strangely, tbe second shot -
which almost immediately followed the first
after passing through a panel of the door,
entered the left breast of the unfortunate wo?
rn in. p-isf ed through her body and came out
under the right arm, and she fell to the floor,
and in a few momenta breathed ber last. The
dre-idtnl aot was witnessed by the husband
and young son of the victim-a boy about nine
years ot age, who bas since been almost fran?
tic with grief and horror.
Whon tho officer entered tho room wherein
the terrible cn mn took place, the murderer
stood in the middle of the apirlmen t contem?
plating his fiendish work, and still holding in
bia hand tue tata! instrument of death. Im?
mediately, however, upon th a entrance of
Sergeant Hawthorn, he ex ended bis arms in
a theatrical manner,->B tying. "I'm your mani"
and was immediately secured and conducted
to the station-house, whither ho proceeded
White is a good looking man, apparently
somewhere in the vicinity of thirty years of
age; and? in conversation with the offi?
cer on the way to the station, although ox
pressing no regret at the horrible deed he had
committed, remarked tbat there ought not to
bave boen causa enough for him to have done
what be did. Tbe murd ired woman, Mrs.
Katie Hobbs, was the second wife of the doc?
tor, and was about thirty-five years of age.
It iB stated tbat tho murderer had been a
friend and acquaintance of Mrs. Hobbs from
early childhood, and no teasou was given last
night showing what impelled the murderer to
commit the awful deed. While, last night,
waa unaware ot the extent of his crime, and
seemed to be nnder the impression tbat his
victim was still alive. It is deemed ad nsable
by those in authority to leave him in that con?
dition for the present.
An examination of tbe/oom of the murder?
er after his arrest revealed a scene of tha wild?
est disorder. Books and papers wore scatter?
ed about in every direction, and innumerable
letters were roan 1 tn a partially consumed con?
dition. The murderer, White, carno from
Nova Scotia. When tho war commence! be
03listed ia tho Ninth Massachusetts Regi?
ment as a private. He was so morely wounded
at Fredericksburg, and subsequently promo?
ted to the rank of major. Of late ho has re?
sided in Mississippi, and was a delegate from
that Stato to tho ('mc ago Convention of 1838,
and since has acted aa a regis try officar, a pos i
sitiou secured for him by bis friend General
Dent. He carno to Boston about two weeks
ago from Mississippi, Bartering from a palm >
nary complaint, and having bjon an intimate
friend of Dr. Hobbs and wife, was taKen into
their family for madical treatment. It ts as?
serted that White was in love with Mrs. Hobbs,
and, m fact, a monomaniac iu his devotion to
