DABXXKOTON COTJOTY, August 81.-The se
ooDd drought is over, but the rains havo.
so br, been insufficient and partial, and
consequently the late corn is not likely to do
as mach as was expected two weeks SRO. No
well informed planter estimates the corn crop
of tho county at more Iban one-half of what
weald have been harvested had the season
been propitious. Cottoj, too, will fall con?
siderably below tbe expectations with which it
was planted. It bas suffered particularly from
tho excessive bot weather of the 19th, 20th and
21st instants; bat ow ins chiefly to the larger
area planted. Rood judges think that the cou:;ty
will simd to market, this year, hs many bales
as it did last year. This, and the prospect of
tho continuance of tho present high price of
the ?tapio, prevents despondency of spirit.
Traps for the cotton that now speckles oar
fields with white, in tho shapo of mean little
shops, kept by mean little men, are, of course,
set all ovor the county, and it is difficult to fiud
a Urge plantation without, at least, ono para?
site of this kind; but tbeio are those who be?
lieve that the experience of this fall will prove
the evil to be on tho decrease, mainly on ac?
count of an improved "public opinion" among
tho negroes. "So moto it be. '

the roads to be worked as of yore. There are
Bb.arp-sigb.ted nen among UB who say tbat the
reason of the recent opposition, on the part of
the Radicals, to townships, is to be found in
the fact, that experience bas already demon?
strated that their party made a tremendous

A Pim for a Debased Negro Kale.
[From the New York Timos, Rad.]
A very sinking statement, combined with a
still more remarkable argument, comeB to UB
irom South Carolina. In 18<9, says THE
CHARLESTON NEWS, tho twelve cotton States
.'will show more tine prosperity than any
other section or tho worl3." It goes on to es
timato the crop of cotton for the present year,
which it fixes at 8,000 OOO bales, ibo average
value of all the orops will amount to KM per
head of tho population. Every one will bo
glad to learn that the States in which we bave
often been told all industries were extinguish
ed, are already making such rapid progress to?
ward a recovery of their former position.
Our contemporary carries hid statistics a
little more into detail. Assuming that be has
taken the necessary pains to insure acjura :y,
there is great reason to congratulate South
Carolina on the falsification of the melancholy
predictions which have long been uttered re?
specting her. She will, we are told, yield pro?
ducts this year worth $50,000.000, or au aver?
age of $74 62 per head m a population ot 670,
000, and all this, he adds, disparagingly, .'un?
der debasing negro rule." We can only pay
that the State appears to flourish very well t t?
der the infliction. It seems to suit her. Wo
were given to understand that there wonld be
no more cultivation going on in any part of the
State when onoe negroes obtained the ascen?
dancy. Has this prophecy been justified by
event? ? If the Charleston logic is worth any?
thing, we must all agreo thai it mikes out a
very stroog case for the negroes.
There is another face mentioned by the same
writer which must have taken most Southern
peopl6 Ly surprise. "There aro now no lees than
200,000 whttos cullivating cotton with their
own bands.'' This statement is not qualified
in any way-we aro not even told, what doubt?
less is the fact, that tho whites thus employed
in cotton growing are at work on the up'acds.
But tho time is by no means remote when wc
were positively assured that white labor never
could bo extensively used ni South Carolina. To
argue against tho assertion was to expose
onoself to unlimited obloquy. What do wo
find now? That one-third of tho population
of Soutb Carolina are actively engaged in tho
very work which it was believed thc uegro was
specially created to perform. Tbc negro alone,
and in an enslaved condition, was deemed
equal to tho cultivation of cotton. Ito wonld
never work as a freeman. Every ono of these
anticipations bas proved erroneous. Tho white
can grow cotton if ho likes, and thc negro id
very willing to work if any ono will pay bim
proper wages. South Carolina will settle tho
i-otton controversy in England il BOO continues
to advance at her present rate, ibo inferior
staple grown m India will not bold tho market
even against the "short staple" of South
Carolina, and, in the taco of such competition,
the English Government- will scarcely tbiok it
worth while to expend money for the encour?
agement of cotton growing in their Eastern
(From tho New York Commercial Advertiser, Ri d.]
Were the question to be pnt to tno wbito
people of the Southern Slates to-day whether
they should or should not have slavery re?
stored, they would volo against its re-estab?
lishment by an overwhelming if not almost
unanimous mijority. Sueh was the remark
made to us yesterday by a Southern gentle?
man, who occupied a high position in tue Cm
federate army, and whose opportunities for
kuowing the changing vio wa of those who
erred with him ure by no means few. And,
judging from the general tone of the Southern
papers, and tho speeches of such men as Henry
A. Wise, we inter that thc remark is founded
on fact. Though five years bavo not passed
tinco the war closed, (he late owners ot slaves
have become thoroughly convinced that free
labor is more profitable than slave; that tbe
former system tinda thom with much more
money at the end of the year, and reliove i
them from great care and responsibilities.
We were struck with another observation
made by this gentleman, viz: That ibo South?
ern people aro really richer uow than evor be?
fore. Property in slaves could not bo regard?
ed os wealth or a sourco of wealth. Furtbor
moro. the people, prior to thc war, were al?
ways io debr, uo matter how Large their landed
e Rates. Wbilo tho bulk ot their etap'ea were
"mortgaged" ia advance by the factors, the re?
mainder was consumed in paving store bills
contracted at the North, aud in supplying
slaved-tho old and worthless as wall as tho
efficient-with clothing and tho necessaries of
life. After tho war, however, they possessed
no credit, weie unable to effect purchases on
time, and consequently now have no debts to
pay. What they now have they own them
telves. Furthermore, they aro not obliged to
support, during the unproductive season, an
idle population, as was the oise under slave
Many of our Soulhorn cotemporaries very
sensibly concur in this view of tho caso. Foi
exam plo, the CH ARLESTON NEWS affirms that
tho twolve cotton States wdl this ye ir "show
moro true prosperity than any other section of
the woild." To prove its assertion THE NEWS
shows, to its own satisfaction at l=ast. that
Ibis year's cotton crop will amount to 3,000,000
bales, and that tho averago value of all thc
crops wdl amount to $64 per hoad of tho pop?
ulation. South Carolina is doing oven batter
iban this average, and will yield this year pro?
ducts worth $50,000 000, or au averago of about
?75 per head. To crown all, THE Narwa in foi ms
OH that all this is being accomplished "under
debasing negro rale I"

Wealth and Trade of tin- South.
(From tho Baltimore Sun. |
THE CHARLESroN NEWS predicts that for
1869 tho oottou Slates '.will show more true
prosperity than auy other section of tho
world." It gjes on to estimate tho crop of
cotton for tho present year, wbich it fixes at
3,000,000 bales. Tho averago value of all thp
crops will amount to $64 per head of tho popu?
lation. THE NEWS also predicts that South
Carolina will yield products this vcar worth
$50,000 000, or an averago of $74 62 per bead in
a population of 670.000. If tho nocessary
means to insure accuracy in this ataloruent.
havo been omployed, this affords a subject of
great congratulation to South Carolina, winch
only a few years ago was apparently ruined.
Another remarkablo fact Ls mentioned by the
BO me journal: "lhere aro uow no less than
200,000 H bites cultivating cotton with their
own Rauda." This probably rclera moro espe?
cially to cotton growing on tho uplands. lu
tho old days of slavery the fa-t might havo
told as an argument against that iustitution,
but now that tho negroea are free, the wbito
man cultivating cotton is certainly a dangerous
competitor ot tho b!ac:ca. lt may bo added
that while iu all the near South there is such
distress from shortening of crops by the
drought, the merchants, planters an I others
arriving here from tho far South-the cottou
region especially-are most cheerful, and are
much encouiagcdby the success of and prices
for their great product.

TUE SPARTAS B UKO AlfJO ASHVILLE
ITS IMPORTANCE TO CHARLESTON AND SO
An A bli Speech by General Cannon.
At tho annual meeting of the stockholders of
thc Spartanburg' and Union Railroad, the HOD.
Gabriel Cannon was invited to deliver an
address on tho subject of tho Ashville con?
nection. General Cannon accordingly dc
scribed, with bis usual clearness and force,
the important advantages that the State and
this city mnst derive from the building of a
railroad from Spartanbnrg to Ashville, by
which wc should reach to the very heid of the
trade of the West. IIo said:
Qentitmtn of the Convention-Another year
bas rolled aroand. and brought you agiin to
hear the report of the officers as to tho oporu
tiOLS and prospeota of tho road. Tbercpoit of
the president, under all circums'anees, ii quite
satisfactory. Notwithstanding the heavj re?
pairs that ba/e been made during tho year,
the report shows on income over all cxponses
of near $20 OOO; and no doubt with a good crop
and fair business next year, it will far excood
that som. but there is a subject which pres?
ses heavily upon the friends of this road, i
mean tho "extention of tho same to Aslivillo,
N. C. i know that the whole country has been
impoverished, and we aro poor, and probably
some ot you may say, too poor to talk ol build?
ing railroads; but the great importance, yea,
I may say necessity, for extending this enter?
prise, makes il necessary that we bestir our?
selves. If wc cannot do much, lol each do
what he is abb, andi hive confidence that wo
shall euee 'ed.
We made application to tho L?gislature, at
its last session for aid, and, afor mature con .
aideration by that bo ly, the House pr seed it
by more Iban a two-thirds vote, and it remains
in tho Senate as a part of tho unfinished busi?
ness, and it is hoped that that body will paps
it through at ao early day. I am also much
gratified to think thal tho pcoplo of Charles?
ton and the South Carolina Railroad Company
have at last begun to appreciate tho impor?
tance ot this connootioo. They see that a
large portion of the most valuable trade that
Charleston formerly bad bas been troDBferrod
to other maikete. Twenty-five or thirty years
ago all Western North Carolina and a large
portion of East Tennessee came ugularly to
Chai leaton for their goods. Now, I ask any
Charles-on merchant when bo has acid a b ll of
goods to a merchant from either of these sec?
tions ? They are gone. Wo musl give thom
facilities, and Charleston must hold out tho
inducements, and they will r3tnrn. lt is thoir
natural markot. _ Tim trado will brnl'J up your
road, runuing directly through the coutre o'
the State by tho cipital. tbono on the Couth
Carolina Railroad to Charleston.
This roulo has the advantage over any
other, both as to distance, grades and curva?
ture. Starting from Cincinnati, tho dint mee
is 200 miles to Cumberland (Jap, from l'uni
belaud Gap to Paint Rock, (North Carolin*,
lino) 95 miles, i rom Paint Rock to Spartau
burg 117 miles, Spartanbnrg to Columbia 93
miles, Columbia to Charleston 130 miles. Total
dietanco from Cincinnati to Charleston G35
mile?, and from Louisville to Charlesion by
thc French Broad, it ia only 629 miles. Charles?
ton has tho advantago in distance of G7 miles
over Norfolk, 123 miles ovor Haltimoro, via
Wheeling. 119 miles over Beaufort, North
Carolina, and 33 miles over Wilmington, North
Carolina. You will Hun see that Charl.?ton
lian so decided an advantage over all tLt mar?
kets cajt of tho route, thatsh9 wilidtaw the
truie on all opposing lines, and make them
feeders in Head of drawing business away.
Lot ns now seo how it stands on the west
side. Taking Louisville, Kentucky, as the ob?
jective pomt, Charleston bas Ibo advantage in
distance1 over Savannah, via? Chattanooga, ol
113 miles, and via Knoxville and thc Blue
Ridge Of 74 mile*. Tito French Broad is 60
miles shorter than the Blue Ridge via Knox?
ville and the Greenv.Co Railroad. You will pci
ooivo that this route has no corape itor, and
cannot have, io point nf distance Let us now
seo t'.e advantages in cost of construction,
grado and curvature Coming sontb from Paint
Rock via Ashville, there is no grado over tony
feet per mile, and gomg from thia place to
Paint Hock, two and-a-mir miles around Tryon
Mountain, have a grade of sixty-three foot per
mile No other grade over forty feel. The
curvature is said by tho cngiueers to be very
light indeed. Tho COHI ol the road as estimat?
ed hy M ijor McNeil in 183G, sud again IA- Major
McCalla tu 1800, will bo loss than $2,000 000.
and wben finished to Ashv.llo, N. C.. the
whole road to Louisville and Cincinnati will be
secured beyond uVubt.
The Legislature of North Carolina has re?
moved all restriction as to gauge; c TS may,
therefore, pass through with unbroken bulk.
Tho western ex ensioti of thc North Carolina
Ccntr.il Road is now let to contract, between
Ashville and Paint Rock, and operations com?
mon .'ed from Paint Rock to Morristown,,on
th J KuBt Tennessee and Virginia Railroad; a dis?
tance of 44uiir%s, tho road is completo and
in running order, (this ie in tho heart of East
Tennessee, one ot tho finest provision conn
tries in thc United btatns.) From Mqmstown
to Cumberland Cap, 51 miles, which is tbe re?
maining link of tho Cincinnati, Cumberland
G ip and Clnrloiton Railroad, thev bavo State
aid of $10 OOO per mile, and $100 000 f jr each

Thc road, direct from Louisville to Cumber?
land (jip, is all provided for.
The above statements bave boen collected
from the reports and surveys of tue various
eugincers who havobeen on the line from 183G

Blore Interesting Details-Time and Dis?
tance Correctcd-Cirapalc Description
of tho Contest, ??wt.
lt ia clear now that in tho recent interna
tiona! boat race on the River Thames, thc
Americans were not beaton KO badiy by their
opponents, thc Oxford crew, as at first report?
ed. The latei cable dispatch, published yes?
terday, stated that the judge had declared that
the Harvards, at the end of tho rac:, were only
half a length clear water in the rear of their op?
ponents, indicating that they lost the race by
about a length and a half. Now, the special
correspondent of tho New York Tribune con?
firms this statement, and says:
Thc defeat of thc Harvards in the interna?
tional boal race was less than reported. AH
reckoned on the prest boat it appeared to bc
four lengths, and I BO telegraphed; but tb;
judge at Mortlake, Sir Aubrey Paul, personally
informa me that the actual difference at the
finish was but ono length and-a-ualf. Thc
time, loo, given in my first dispatch wa? in
correcl. Tho true time was 22 minutes 20 sec?
onds and three-?fths, as tiken by Frodsham's
chronograph, registering independent fifths of
seconds, this is nearly 21 seconda less than
the time given by tho Louden reporter-; bnt I
took it myself, a:d am confident it is accurate.
The same writer givca a graphic description
ol'the race, and Hie report seems to be, at the
same time, critical, perfeotly fair and more sat?
isfactory than any other account that has yet
boen reoived. He says:
Ibo boats started abreast of (he umpire's
steamer. Blaikie gave tbe word "Go" at ex?
actly fire boura lourteen minn tea forty-one
8Bcondsand two-fifths. The tide bad almost
oeased running up. and the whole race waa
rowed on nearly slack water. Harvard jumped
away a?, tho word, Loring (tho Boston Btroke)
bernnnintr with the impossible stroko of forty
six to tho minute. Darbisbire (the iinglisli
stroko ) who wilt never be harried, was eon
tent with forty. Tho paco wau tornfic irom
Harvard borran almost immediately to lead,
drawing away from Oxford amid loud cheers
and rowing well togetber, and in botter form
tuan ever before At Craven Cottage tboy
wcro full half a length ahead, and thence to
d ab Tree kept steadily gaining. Both crews
wcrodoingall they wanted; but Oxfotd, which
was nevor undor any stress, increasing its
measure stroko of forty to the minute, rowed
with a precision beyond all praise. Darbisbire
is like a machine, and is never flurried by an
opponent's load. *
Long before Hammersmith -vas reached,
Harvard, having a cloar lead Burnham (Chi?
cago coxswain) should have (akin Oxford's
water; but frying to do so, he grew nervous,
sheer cd wild, teemed thcu to loso his bead,
and never aftor regained bis composure. Ho
lost at leaat a length on the wholecourso. Ox?
ford steered admirably well, making a straight
lino irom Crab Tree to the centre ot Hammer?
smith bridgo, and thenoo diu not loso an mcb
to tho end,
At Crab Tree. Harvard was a good length
ahead, the time being Ave minutes and fifteen
seconds. But here the paco bea an to tell.
Tho stroko bad fallen from 46 to 44 and 40, and
then went up ugiin lo 43. Flesh and blood
could stand it no longer.
Beyond Crab Tree, Oxford bogan to creep up,
?nd at tbe soap works wero alougbido. This
Loring would not eu O'er, but drove on his boat
with spirit, and shot Hammersmith Bridgo a
length ahead ones more, Darbisbire impassive
ly pulling 40 to tho minnte, and never getting
many inches astern of Harvard's rudder.
'lbe bridge was a bedlam of varying Bbonts
ind olieers tor the two struggling crews. Har?
ford passed under it in aa unprecedented
lime-oigbt min?tes sod thirty seconds-bat
ila? and alas, the effort bad not only been tre?
mendous, hut desperate. To critical eyes tho
race was lost while Harvard was still a good
ength ahead. Their rowing grew wild, their
[orm, hitherto good, was lost, their time for?
gotten, And saddening symptoms of distress in
: ne American boat became evident not far De
pond Hammorcmttb. Oxford a second timo
bagan to draw np ou tho loading bo? t, never
?ccelerating their stroke, but rowing with that
Ina! test of Defect oarsmanship, a spirit with?
out basto. It was tho last roa I struggle of tho
race. Harvard hld little Ief-; *o answer Ox
ord's challenge; tho dark brno drew swiftly
evel, then ahead, (hen a full length ahead, and
off Chiswick Church took Harvard's water.
Prom thit moment Oxford had a clear lead,
j. h J race was over.
There remained two milos and moro to row,
but the last chance and hopo of Harvard was
;one. Thence they rowed ou, os bravo men
wu! row, a hopeless racu-a race tboy knew to
bo hopeless, and yet contested with heroic cour
180. Burnham frantically threw water over
Loring, checking tho boat without relioviDg
tho crew, and his wild Btoonng ?till went on.
Barreu'e bridgo was passed in eighteen min?
utes. Oxford apparently several lengths ahead,
ind Harvard vainly spurting before and bo
yond tno bridge. To tell thc plaiu truth, Ox?
ford won ns they liked after passing Hammer?
smith. To tho passionate effort a of Harvard,
Darbisbire was contont to respond with just
effort enough to koep Ibo lead undiminished,
and eo tho two bravo fours rowed on.
At tho final momon*. Luring, ia np hopo of
success, but for honor's puro sake, rallied the
last energies ol' his exhausted crew, and they
drew to wi1 bin a length and a half ot that still
vigorous, indomitable Oxford four. And with?
in a length and a half of opponents whom tboy
were bound to respect in defeat. Oxford rowed
s tea lily past thc judge's boat as tbo signal gun
heavily boomed out victory to St. George and
leitet to the stare and Stripes.

a few mon hs, by exorbitant puffing and heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in buddins a profitable busi?
ness for th-ir projector;.
fco'omon's Bitters are not of thu flashy style, de?
pending upon large advertising, bought puffs and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition is well known to and ap?
proved by many of our best physicians, and thc pro?
prietors depend upon the m'rinsic merits cf tb'ir
medicine to make it as popular a* it i-> curative.
They do net pretend to ofler a medicinal prepara?
tion that will euro all tho il'.s that flesh is bar to,
but they do contend that the judicious use ot ihe.-e
Ritters will greatly alleviite human suffering, and
bring very mauy to a state of comparative health
who have lon.", been straugers to that gri-o' blessing.
One good gc nui'ie recommendation of any pro?
