(Knoae, at the Death of Parla.
A little while she stood, and spake no word,
. But hung above him, with white heaving breast.
And moaning still as moans the gray-winged bird
In autumn-tide o'er his forgotten nest;
And then her hands about her throat she pressed,
As though to keep a cry back, then stooped down
And aether face to his, while spake her moan:
.'0 love 0 cherished more than I can tell,
Through years of woe, 0 love, my life and bane,
My joy ana grief, farewell, farewell, farewell !
Forgetfulness of grief I yet may gain,
In some wise may come ending to my pain;
It may be yet the gods will have me glad !
Yet, love, I would that thee and pain I had !
"Alas I lt may not be, it may not be,
The falling blossom of the late Spring tide,
Shall hang a golden globe upon the tree
When through the vale the mists of Autumn glide;
Yet would, o love, with thee I might abide.
Kow, now that restful death is drawing nigh
Farewell, farewell, how good lt is to die !"
' O strange, 0 strange, when on his lips once J
Her lips were laid ! 0 strange that he must die
Now. when so clear a vision had come o'er
His failing heart, and keenest memory,
Had shown him all his changing life passed by;
And what he was, and what he might have been,
Yea, and should be, perchance, so clear were
Yea, then were all things laid within the scale,
Pleasure and lust, love and desire of fame,
Kindness, sud hope, and folly.-all the tale
Told lu a moment, as across him came
That sudden flash, bright as the lightning flame,
Showing the wanderer on the waste how he
Has gone astray mid dark and misery.
Ah, and her face upon his dying face
That the sun warmed no more ! that agony
Of dying love, wild with the tale of days
Long Bast, and strange with hope that might not
All was gone now, and what least part had he
In Love at al), ard why was Ufe all gone ?
Why must he meet the ty es of death alone ?
Alone, for she and ruth had left him there;
Alone, because the ending of the strife
He knew, well taught by death, drew surely near;
Alone, for au those vears with pleasure rife
Should be a tale mid Helen's coming life,
And she and all the world should go its ways,
Midst other troubles, other happy days.
And yet, how was it with him ? As if death
Strove yet with struggling lifo and love in vain,
With eyes grown deadly bright and rattling
He raised himself, while wide his blood did stain
Tue linen fair, and seized the horu again.
And blew thereon a wl'd and shattering blast
Ere from his hand afa the thing he cast.
Thea, as a man who in a falling fight
For a last onset gathers suddenly
Ail soul and strength, he raced the summer light,
And from his Hps broke forth a mighty cry
Of "Helen, Helen, Helen '."-yet the sky
Changed not above his cast-back golden head,
And merry was the world, though he was dead.

The Cropg ia Greenville.
The Enterprise says that the farmers on
Monday last reported things quiet at their respec?
tive homes. The crops, they say, are some better
than anticipated, yet are very light. The prepa?
ration of land for wheat has really commenced;
we hope a great deal will be put down. Thorough
cultivation of soil and the application of good
manures, domestic and commercial, should en?
gage the attention of all.
The Darlington Democrat says: "Since our last
issue, we have two more reports of the use of the
knife by colored people. In one case Mr. Richard
F. Blackman a peaceable, quiet and unoffending
youngman, was the victim. He was severely cut
in the abdomen by one Isaiah Davis, colored. At
one time his wound was considered mortal, and
he was so informed, lt gives us pleasure to an?
nounce that lt is now thought he will recover. In
the other case, both parties were colored: one was
eut In the arm, but not seriously hurt. It is time
this thing was stopped; and the respectable color?
ed people Join in this opinion."

NEW YORK, November 9.-In domestic there is
not much doing, and prices are in thc buyers'
favor. The offerings are free, but the dealers pur?
chase only as they have occasion to use. We no?
tice sales of 120 tes at 7a7 V cts. Rangoon is dull
and prices are heavy. We quote for lots in bond
3a3,\ic gold. We clip the following from Messrs
Dan Tal mage's Son's circular, compiled to-day:
Since the opening of the crop thc market hos
declined very rapidly, such decline being over l>,c
f lb. This has not been thc consequence of heavy
arrivals, as nearly every parcel has been sold
promptly from wharf, but owing in part to thc
fact that purchasers took hold sparingly, buying
only from "hand to mouth,'' or for immediate
The arrivals of Carolina at this port have been
1386 tierces up to date as against 1503 tierces for
same period last year.
Our present rates seem by comparison very low,
and some arc inclined to think that the minimum
point for the crop has been reached, and that it ls
the proper time for laying aside their stock in our
line for the coming season. "Not inclining to
their opinion we venture to uttei ours, giving
sound reason for our belief, that prices must de?
cline still further, ruling materially 'owcr during
the whole season.
By our latest advices from the South we have
estimates of the crop in the various sections,
which will be found io agree very nearly with the
actual yield. The production has been, viz: In
North Carolina equal to 2400 tierces; in South
Carolina equal to 40,OOO tierces; In Georgia equal
to 27,000 tierces; In Louisiana equal to 32,000
tierces; total, 101,400 tierces.
The yield, which we believe is rather under
than over estimated, is largely in excess of that
ef last year.
Heretofore the amount raised has not been
equal to the demand, and it being well known
that before a subsequent crop could be produced,
recourse would have to be had to East India
kinds, thc rices of the latter exerted a control?
ling Influence over the Carolina. This year the
growth has attained such dimensions that lt must
go Into more general use than heretofore. To ac?
complish this it will have to bc placed sufficient ly?
lo w io compete with breadstuff's and esculents
generally. Flour is selling even at lower rates
than before the war, potatoes and other vege?
tables likewise, and such prices will undoubtedly
prevail during the winter. These arc In brief
some of the causes which have depressed the
prices of our article, and which must continue
until rates have reached a basis at least propor?
tionate to those at which it was sold prior to the
war. The minimum point will bc reached about
the middle of December to first of January, by
which time the bulk of the crop will bc on the

NASHVILLE, November 9.-COTTON.-The mar?

urday the market was irregular, closing at 23 ?4a
23J?. On Monday thc market was depressed, 23M
being the outside figure.
To-day the market has been characterized
throughout by extreme dullness, and the unvary?
ing teuor of the dispatches from both Liverpool
and New York, representing those markets as
dull, heavy and declining, caused buyers to ope?
rate very cautiously, even at the decline. We
quote: Good ordinary 22>?a22>i ; low middling 23.

extra $6 25a6 SO: double extra $6 50a6 76; family

rpo SEA ISLAN! COTTON PLANTERS.
The small yield of Sea Island Cotton (peculiar
to that fariety, and yearly lessened by increased
ra-agesof worms,) is not nearly compensated by
the greater value of its long staple, and a change
of Seed ls imperatively demanded-experience
having fully proven that thc earlier maturity of
other kinds greatly lessens the danger from
worms. The question, then, is: The proper varie?
ties to adopt; and this ls a problem easier solved
than formerly, when little attention was paid to
this subject In the cultivation of Cotton by the
great majority of Southern Planters. The sub?
scribers have recently witnessed with pleasure
the increased interest in improved varieties ex?
hibited by the numerous responses (nearly 100 In
number) to their letters Inquiring of Planters
abont the characteristics of all thc known varie?
ties of Cotton, and the effects or change of cli?
mate and soil on different kinds. Thc established
facts we have thus collected we arc prepared to
apply to different soils and climates; and to any
Planter (or association or Planters) who will ad?
dress us, describing the characteristics or their
localities, we will freely give the fruits of onr
knowledge. Our different correspondents have
given ns the control of every variety of Seeds we
have heard of. Our hst comprises as many as
twenty distinct varieties, and our specimen room
of staVks, limbs, bolls and lint, that have been
sent to us, ls a marvel of its kind. We are now
prepared to HU orders (after a few day's notice)
for "PETIT GULF," "DICKSON'S," "Monterey,"
"Peeler's," "Boyd's Prolific," "Vick's 100," "Goo?
sey's," and "4 Bale;" and, with a few day's addi?
tional notice, we can promise to procure almost
any other denomination that may bc ordered.
