sowed upon it one and a half bushels of wheat,
from which he reaped fifty-seven dozen, on
the 17th of June last, which yielded thirty
bushels of clean wheat. The doctor thinks

clared a tru:e, and having already amassed a
small siced fortune, has gone, it is said, to the

effects of the campaign through which he has
i, nat passed. Before he left, great crowds of
negroes gatheied at tbe courthouse nearly
every Saturday, and frequently oftener; hat
since his departure scarcely a ripple has dis?
turbed the serenity of the politic*! waters. In

negroes-tbe; whole constitutum a guard for
the arma at the jail, and kept up at an expense
to the county of about fifteen hundred dollars
' per m out h. . The authority by which thia force
ia kept here is underwood to be the joint reso?
lution of the General Assembly authorising
the Governor to employ an armed force for the
preservation of the peace. But that resolution
only authorizes tbe employment of snob a
force "when in any county io the State it shall
become i m poss, ble to enforce the.laws and

and incendiaries, have never worked better.
The presenoe of the arma at the courthouse,
land the "knot" of constables and negroes
guarding them, would now excite very little
comment, were it not for the tact that it is
taking fifteen hundred dollars a month out of
the taxpayer's pockets. But what matter to a
party whose sole purpose is spoliation and
plunder? Peace and good order in tbe State ia
entirely incompatible with the interesta of the

season of the year.. .A good many have ap?

PROSPECTS OF THE CROPS.
Reports Kee ri vee! at the De par ment Ot*
Agriculture ihr Present Month.
A Washington correspondent has made up au
interesting compilation from the August report
on the growing crops, received at the Depart?
ment of Agriculture. It appears tbat New J er
Bey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, in tbe East;
West Virginia, Kansas and Nebraska, in the
West, and Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Flor?
ida and Texas, in the South, aro the only States
which claim an average or more, in condition,
of the corn crop, as compared with the same
date last year, with a. slightly increased acre?
age ia New Jersey and Pennsylvania, six per
cent, increase in Nebraska and West Virginia,
thirty per cent, in Kansas, seven per cent, in
Texas, and ten per oent. in Florida; and a
somewhat decreased acreage. in Arkansas,
Lonisi ina and Delaware.
In the great corn-producing State of Illinois,
the average estimate of condition, in about
sixty counties, falls fully thirty per cent, below
last season at same date; Ina ana the second
State io production, puts the figures nearly as
low; Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota rate
twenty to thirty per cent, below; Iowa twenty
percent.; Missouri, Kent ocky and Tennessee
ten per cent. The New England States range
from ten to fifteen per cent, below; New Yon*
twenty to twenly-five per cent.; Maryland, Vir?
ginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and
Tennessee ten per cent.; and South Carolina
thirty per cent, below. Texas promises twenty
per cent, better yield than last year, with an
increased acreage as noted, and Kansas and
Arkansas ten per cent, better than last year.
In few of tue Urger States will tho increase
?of acreage make np for decrease in general
condition, while in several of the largest corn
!'rowing States the aoreage has been reduced
rom last year, owing to the very unfavorable
spring; henos it seems hardly possible that a
crop equalling that of last year can now be
made under the most favorable future, while
tbe indications tue that the yield of the season
will fall considerably below that of 1868.
Drought has done much damage in some sec?
tions, succeeding the excessive rains which
had previously retarded the growth of the
crop. Favorable weather henceforth, with hte
fall, may do much for the general yield; but a
short corn crop appears inevitable. Illinois
and Indiana produced about one-fourth of the
crop of the whole country last year, and now
threaten to reduce their product twenty-five to
thirty-five per cent. Ohio, Iowa, Missouri,
Kentucky and Tennessee, which raised one
third of the crop of 1868, promise a decreased
yield of ten to twenty per cent. The season,
which has been unpropitious for this great
national crop, has, however, p'oved favorable
to mo st others; and though the corn be cut
short, there most be abundance in the land.
INCREASED OOTTON CHOP.
While all the cotton States, exoept Georgia
and Florida, reported the condition of the cot?
ton crop in July as considerably below the
average of the crop of 1868 at correspoddlbg
date, nearly all now report an improvement
upon those estimates, and several of the more
important cotton regions report the condition
as better than in August of last year, the
weather havinir been generally propitious, and
the injury by tbe worm comparatively incon?
siderable, though there is no lack of apprehen?
sion of damage from the latter. Mississippi,
the largest producer of this staple, with au in?
crease of ten per cent, in aoreage, reports the
condition fully up to tbat of last season at that
date. Georgia, condition equal to last year,
with fifteen per cent, increase In acreage;
Louisiana, ten per cent, better ic condition,
and fifteen per cent, increase in acreage; Ar
kinsas and Texas report condition above
average, with twenty per cent, increase of
acreace io the former, and thirty per cent, in
the latter State; and Florida, condition above
average, with twenty-five per cent, iocroase ia
On the other hand, North Carolina reports
the condition five to ten per cent, helot* last
year, though the increase of acreage, ten per
cent., balances the loss. Tennessee alone re?
ports decreased acreage, and also reports con?
dition ten per cent, below last year. Alabama,
with eight per coot, increase io acreage, places
the conditioo of the crop at ten per coot, below
that of last year. South Carolina makes the
worst showing, reporting the condition twen?
ty-five percent, below the crop of last year,
hot with an increase of seven to ten per cent,
io sci jage. In view of the oocertaioties of the
weather, aod the danger of damage by insects
to which the crop is subject, it is yet too ear?
ly to estimate the production of the year with
any degree of certainty; bot it is reasooable to
anticipate, with an average increase of acre?
age equal to fifteen per cent., a yield fully up
to the figures of 1868, which reached 2 500,000
balee, and there is noU?hg in the present
prospect to discourage the present expecta?
tion of a considerable increase, which can
alone be prevented by some signal disaster
from weather or destructive Insecte.
LABOE POTATO OBOP.
With quito a large increase in the area
planted in potatoes, tbis ci op promises a large?
ly increased yield over the product of last year.
New York and Pennsylvania, which produce
nearly if not quite one-third of the entire crop
of the country, report an increase of three to
five per cent, in acreage, witb an advance of
ten to twelve per cent, in general condition
and promise. Ohio reports six per cent, more
acreage, and abont fifteen per cent better in
condition; Illinois, ten per cent, better, and
ten per cent, more acreage; Indiana, a sligbt
increase in acreage, bnt ten per cent, advance
in condition; Iowa, ten to twelve per cent, in?
crease in acreage, and as much better in con?
dition; New Jersey, twelve par cent, larger
acreage, and condition fifteen per cent, above
last year; Alaine, Vermont, Michigan and Wis?
consin are tbe only States which report de?
creased acreage; and tbe crop, without un?
foreseen casualties, must be arge.
The tobacco crop is not producing so great a
yield as last year. Virginia, the largest pro?
ducer, reports the condition as ten to twelve
per oent. less promising than last year at the
same date, with a decrease of seven to ten per
cent, in acreage. North Carolina, Tennessee
and Kentucky have put in an acreage six per
cent, larger than in 1868, but report the condi?
tion aa five to ten per cent, below last year.
Maryland and Indiana report an average acre?
age and prospect. Illinois and Ohio five to ten
per cent, decrease in acreage, and about five
per cent, decline in condition.
The spring sown wheat is generally yielding
well, though in some sections it falls below an
average. In I linois the retorna indicate a pro?
duct thirty to forty per cent, below last year's
crop. In the Northwest, however, the yield ia
rep rted much better, as also in the New Eng?
land States, (and in northern New York, where
the spring varieties are grown. ? The results of
the wheat harvests, both fall and spring varie?
ties, though not yet estimated, were approxi?
mated, and will doubtless be found to con?
siderably exceed the yield of 1868. The spring
grain is not yet all garnered. Buckwheat ap?
pears promising everywhere, with abont an
Should the drought now prevading many
sections of the country long continue, the
growing crops may fall considerably below
present anticipations, but the probabilities
favor a generous general harvest for the year

ADDRESS OF JOHN QUINCY ADAMS
A Broad and Stoat Platform.
At the D?mocratie 8tate Convention of Mas?

last, to nominate a State ticket, Ur. J. Q.
Adams, wbo beads the ticket for Governor,
made a lengthy address. The following ex?
tracts are sufficient to indicate the spirit of the
As things actually stand to-day, what mea?
sures will best serve the general welfare ?
This, gentlemen, with great deference of
opinion, seems to me the only course open to
os. To act otherwise would resemble the wis?
dom or a general who, beaten in a battle
which he had joined, in order to cover certain
points, Bhould, after tho victorious passage of
his opponents, and occupation of the disputed
territory, rally his army anew, on the battle?
field, and tbero fight au imaginary foe, while
he leaves all behind bim to the unopposed pro?
gress ol his antagonist.
Let us leave such strati gists to bang off
their big guns lt empty woods and waste their
ammunition upon tho debris of battle-fields,
while we press on to assume a new position full
m the enemy's front, -wh -ro, when we have re?
stored om* fines and reunited our rinks, suc?
cessful battle may yet be fought and redeem?
ing vx-tory won. In this spirit we would say
to our former fellow-citizens in the excluded
provinces: "Come into the Union; atand not
upon the order of your coming, but come at
once; when you are in, and we can act as fel?
low-citizens once more, we will meet to?
gether and consult upon future measures."
ibis, gentlemen, in brief, is the spirit
wbioh, as it seems to me, should animate our
"action upon past issue:-; foi* the present and
the future are very important in these days,
and will allow us scant time eveu to celebrate
the funeral rites over our dead past. Eternal ac?
tivity is the price of party living, "nd the road
behind i9 strewn with caroasses of the factions
whicb could not see that in politics a dead prin?
ciple is a mere prejndice, nauseous to the peo?
ple. Vague declamation upon natural rights or
wrongs, whether white or black .female or other?
wise, no longer delights a people that is being
gradually taxed out of bouse and home. The
man wno finds it daily more difficult to find his
children bread, will relax his anguish that the
negro has a vote; the most passionate lover of
his colored kind may recognize a fellow-crea?
ture in a planter, it they both agree that tho
price of coal is an outrage, the duty on iron a
swindle, and tba tariff an abomination to be
abolished. In truth, it is high time that, after
some twenty years of a refreshing season for
tbe national sonl, we should take a short term
of attention to the public body-which needs
it badly enough.
I undertake to say that there is no nation in
the world which is taxed as we are taxed. No
wonder that the men who work for wages grow
desperate, as they decline in well being and es?
tate. No wonder that the air is full of strikes
and labor moveaients an i associations and de?
mands and protests of woilringmt n and women,
i hey aro in tho ns ht m their nnrest and up?
rising, although the practical measures pro?
posed as remedies are sometimes unconsider?
ed and unwise; for it is true that the system of
taxation they endure is not only onerous, but
practically operative in the interest of capitd
alone. It is true, as the very able and candid
commissioner of reven ue BJ ya and proves, that,
although the aggregate wealth of the country
is increasing, probably os rapidly as at any
former period, yet it does not follow that there
is the same increase in general prosperity.
The laborer, especially be wno has a large
family to support, is not as prosperous as he
was in 1850; his wages have not increased in
proportion to the increase in the cost of bis
living. There is, therefore, an inequality in
the distribution of our annual product whioh
we must refer to artificial causes, and he asks,
"Whence comes this unnatural distribution of
the results of labor?" And he tells you, and
not ho only, but every man who ever was sup?
posed to know anything abont political econo?
my will tell you, that it must be the result of
an enforced uso of unconvertible heaps of
paper money, which involves a most oppres?
sive tax, which falls heaviest on the laborer
and lightest upon the owner of capital. In
one significant sentence, he sums't- up; "The
rich become richer and the poor poorer."

the dividing lino of Hancock and Greene Conn
tics, was murdered, by a party of unknown per?
sons in disguise, lt seems that the negroes
in the neighborhood became greatly ex?
cited, and supposing Mr. Marchman to
be implicated in the murder, a body of
thirty-five to forty organized themselves into
a regular armed company, on the night of the
18th ins'ant, and repaired to Mr. March
man's bouse. They surrounded the house
and, with horrid oaths and vows of ven?
geance, commenced an indiscriminate fire on
the premises, in which Mr. Marchman was se?
verely wounded. After keeping up the fire for
fifteen or twenty minutes, on the assurance of
Mrs. Marchman that they had killed her hus?
band, they left the premises uttering the most
bitter curs, a against the whites. So far as we
can learn, the negroes ma ie no effort at con?
cealment. Mr. Marchman made his escape in
disguise and soon procured assistancs. The
civil authorities acted promptly, and fifteen of
the party have been arrested and confined in
the jail at Sparta. They have made a full con?
fession abd given the names of all the parties
implicated. Floyd Moore, the leader ot the
gang, is yet at large.

SW SOLOMON'S BITTERS.-THIB PRE?
PARATION, compounded by one of our oldest and
moot esteemed diuggists, has, during the short time
in which it has been offered to the pnbUc, attained
a reputation which has almost entirely driven out of
market the various tonics sad stimulants which, for
a few mon'hs, by exorbitant pufflngand heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for their projectors.
fco'omon's Bitters are not of the flashy style, de?
pending upon large advertising, bought puffs and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition ls well known to sad ap?
proved by many of our best physicians, and the pro?
prietors depend upon tbe intrinsic merits of their
medicine to make lt as popular as lt is curative.
They do net pretend to offer a medicinal prepara?
tion that will cure all the ills that flesh is heir to,
but they do contend that the judicious use of these
Bitters will greatly alleviate human suffering, and
bring very many to a state of comparative health
who have long been strangers to that great blessing.
One good genuine recommendation of any pre
fessed curative is worth dozens or hundreds of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONS
have only published a few out of the hundreds of nn
so'iclted testimonies which the have received. We
this morning give a copy of a letter from Hon. ALIX.
H. STEPHENS, whose peculiarly enfeebled condition
for the past six months has been known to the whole
