THE COTTON PROSPECT ABROAD.
An English View of the Case.
From Smith, Edwards <fc Co.'3 Liverpool cot?
ton circular, for August 1st, we make the fol?
The consumption we would still put at
58,000 bales per week. The advance in cotton
has not affected it EO far, and we have obtain?
ed Information about the Increase in spindle
fiower, which appears to Justify that estimate,
t seems that an addition of about 3.000,000 of
spindles has been made since 1868-most of
this we should say in the last twelve
months. This is not entirely from the
addition of new machinery, as.many old spin?
dles have been brought into play, still, on
the whole, it indicates an increase In con?
suming power of from eight to ten per cent,
and there is also no doubt an Increase In the
amount ot turned off spindles in consequence
of the profitable nature of trade thia year.
There are a considerable number ot new mills
In course of erection, chiefly at Bolton (tine
spinning) and Oldham (average counts,} and
lt ls thought that .tte machine makers can
turn out about 2,000.000 new spindles annu?
ally, and at present they are encumbered by
more orders than they can execute. It there?
fore seems probable that we are drifting to?
wards a consumption of 60,000 bales weekly
nfcxt year, unless trade becomes so unprofita?
ble as to restrict consumption, and lt would
appear that a crop of three and a half millions
ls very necessary for the welfare ot Lancashire
next year, while four millions would scarcely
produce a glut of cotton. _ .*
ESTIMATE OF THE AMERICAN" CROP.
The crop has still to pass through three criti?
cal months; these were extremely favorable
last year, and very favorable the year belore.
Should they be again highly lavorable this
year, public opinion may settle upon 3? to 3*}
millions In October: but should they be unfa?
vorable, it is Just as likely that public opinion
may settle upon three millions. To the best
ol our Judgment the chances of the crop lie at
()resenc between these figures, lt being entlre
y a weather question.
The next most Important element in form?
ing a Judgment of our market is the stock now
held by the trade. On that subject various
opinions prevail, but lt ls universally believed
to be very large. It ls known ibat all the rail?
way companies and carriers hold unusually
large stocks, and the general belief is that
Sinners have fully 200,000 bales of surplus In
elr bands. We are inclined to look at lt In
thle way-the deliveries to the trade from Liv?
erpool and London to date are almost 64,000
bales per week; the consumption we believe
to have averaged 58,000 bales, and so In
the thirty weeks that have elapsed this
year there must have accumulated 180,000
bales of stock. This ls a large figure,
compared with the small slocks spin?
ners have been accustomed to hold for
some years past, but it is not enormous when
trade is pronlable and cotton at a moderate
price. We do not think the trade will surren?
der all this stock, except under the pressure
of a very unprofitable trade, but they may re?
duce it by 100,000 bales, and will probably do
so if we have constantly favorable accounts
from America the next three months, and they
become relieved tro m the lear ol a short crop
next yea*". Il", however, bad weather reports
again come lo hand, or public opinion takes
another of those sudden changes ft often does
In America, and low estimates of the crop
again come into the ascendant, we think spin?
ners will be unwilling to reduce their stocks
materially, and will only be driven to do so by
a further rise in prices.
PROSPECT OF A "SHARP ADVANCE."
From now until the end of the year we will
have a small Import of cotton, and our stock
can only be kept from running down rapidly
by a policy of abstention on the part of the
trade. If they use up their stock In the next
three months, that In Liverpool will not be re?
duced very seriously; but if they hold to their
stocks and buy their weekly consumption, lt ls
evident that our stock will run uncomfortably
low in October and November, and we would
be in peril of a sharp advance if unfavorable
news then reach us from America.
One thing is certain: we cannot supply the
present large consumption of American cot?
ton to the end of the year, and the trade must
be thrown more largely upon Surat?. This
must be brought about by an Increasing mar?
gin in price between the two kinds, and we
see this process already going on in the more
rapid decline that is taking place in Surats.
TH G EXPORT DEMAND
has greatly fallen off, owing to the continent
being so liberally supplied, and lt will likely
continue dull for some time; but If prices keep
moderate, lt ls likely to revive In September
or October. Trade is as highly profitable on
the continent, especially In France, and the
increase of consumption ls relatively greater
than la this country.
THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS.
This county bas had a wet spell. Cotton
picking has begun.
There was rain on Sunday-the first rain
since July 27. The Enquirer says that corn
and cotton are so far gone l'lat they would not
be much benefited by rain.
Refreshing showers lell on E linday, but were
not enough to assist the crops materially,
Throughout the county, according to the In?
telligencer, the crops are somewhat better.
Ker sim w\
The Journal says that more rain ls needed.
At Lynohe's the yield ol cotton is cut down to
a halt crop and the plant has the mst. Flat
Rock gives the same report. At Liberty Hill
the crops are middling, and "across Wateree"
tolerably good. There are some spendid rice
crops. Mr. T.W.Lang will tuke 5000 or 6000
bushels from 120 acres.
THE WHARTON 3TTSTERY.
j One Suspic lon Cleared Away.
[From the Baltimore American, August ie.] *
Professor Aiken, of Baltimore, yesterday
reported to State's Attorney Knott, of Marv- i
land, that he had completed his analysis of
the stomach ol Mrs. Wharton's son. Edward
Wharton, and that he had not found any evi?
dence oi the poison which she was suspected
of having administered to him. The exami?
nation 01 a bottle of brandy which Mrs. Whar?
ton had given a friend also failed to show any
traces ot polBon. Thus the charge against
Mrs. Wharton of poisoning her own son falls
to the ground for want of evidence. Mr.
Pinckney had anticipated the report of Pro?
fessor Aiken and previously informed Mrs.
Wharton's counsel ot the result of the analv
sls, that It might be communicated to her. lt
ls only charitable to presume that she foresaw
what would be the tenor of the report.
This Intelligence will doubtless be a matter
of congratulation to the friends oi the accused,
but lt dashes tha hopes of at least one New
York insurance company, who had cherished
the expectation of being able to recover $10,000
paid to Mrs. Wharton at the time of her son's
death. Whether there will be an investiga?
tion of the charges against Mrs. Wharton of |
poisoning Mr. Edward Wharton and his
daughter, remains to be seen. In Justice
to the accused, the bodies should certainly
be examined. The result of the analysis of
the remains of her son will have a telling 1
effect upon the sentiment of the commuai-1
ty, though as a matter of evidence it ls only
negative in character. All traces of vegetable
poisons would long since have disappeared,
and a chemical analysis at this late day can
only show that no appreciable amount of me?
tallic poison remains in the body. Mrs. Whar?
ton's health has steadily Improved since her
removal lo the tower of the Jail. She is still
weak, however, and seldom leaves her bed.
Her daughter is unremitting In her devotion
to ber mother, and furnishes an example of |
filial affection as rare as it ls beautiful.

MENT OE THE PRESIDENT.
The Usurpations of ?'Our Smoky Ca
sar"-The San Domingo Outrage-D s
graceful Nepotism and Official Corr up
tion-Packing the Supreme Court
The March tu Anarchy.
The political sensation of the hour at the
North is the terrible onslaught on the Admin
istratlon, made last Saturday night by the dis
tlnguished Republican senator from Missouri*
Carl Schurz, in an address before an immense
assemblage of the Germans of Chicago. With?
out giving more copious extracts Irom bis
speech than our space allows, it ls difficult to
convey an Idea ot the unsparing severity with
which he condemned and repudiated General
Grant, not only opposing his renomination,
but declaring his election, If renominated, an
act unworthy of a free people. Of the Presi?
dent's use of the navy to influence the affairs
of San Domingo, Mr. Schurz says :
There stands the naked usurpation. No
public danger provoked it; no public Interest
was served by lt; no public voice called for ic.
The honor of the country would have been far
better guarded without it Not the shadow
of a valid j us ti ri cat lon excuses it. A naked
act of usurpation, performed merely to further
a favorite scheme of the White House. And
for this the constitution was violated, and the
peace of the country endangered. And can
such an act pass without the most energetic
opposition of Congress, and without emphatic
public condemnation ? It would seem so. And
more than this. The same officer of the gov?
ernment who was guilty ot this act is held up
by a great many as the man above all others to
be reinvested with the power and honor of the
National Executive. Do you know what that
We are living in a country where precedent
often, but too often, acquires the authority of
law and constitutional rule. What ls a mere
fact to-day ls apt tobe looked upon as law to?
morrow. Il this act of usurpation passes
without authoritative censure, thus passing as
a precedent Into our history, future Presi?
dents and their sycophants will dad therein.,
sufficient proof that a President may arrogate
io himself such a power, for President Grant
had done BO, and done so not only with im?
punity, but the American people, alter he had
done so, had again rewarded him with the
highest honors of the republic. And what will
that signify? That henceforward a most
flagrant and wilful breach of the constitution
by a President will be considered no reason
w'hy the same position of trust and power
should not be confided to bim again And
when the Republican party will meet In na?
tional convention, to select a candidate lor the
Presidency, the question will not merely be,
Do we preter this man to any other that is
mentioned ? but the question will be, Are we
prepared lo sanction executive usurpation?
May the party whose public services form eo
brilliant a part of the history of this republic ;
not end with such a descent ? If such a ques?
tion should ever be submitted to the people,
it ls to be hoped, for the sake of constitutional
liberty In this country and In the world, that
the Americamnatlon will not hesitate to give
an answer worthy of a free people.
Of the President's policy of appointments to
office, Mr. Schurz says :
The cousins and brothers-in-law of the Pres?
ident may, as officers, be no worse than
others; but when he puts them to the public
crib, the Chief of the State teaches his subor?
dinates by his example, which is everywhere
visible, that in his opinion a public office may?
be used for selfish ends, to make out of lt
what can be made. And who will wonder,
when those subordinates also make out of
their offices all that can be made ? When the
Chlet of the State takes presents, and then
puts the douors Into high offices and digni?
ties, the men so appointed may be very worthy
men, and the presents may have had nothing
to do with their appointments, but the Chlet
of the State bas shown his subordinates that,
in his opinion, an officer may take presents
and then grant his official favors to the donors
In an official way, and who will then
wonder when the subordinate, following
the high example, also take presents and tri ve
their official lavors to thc donors ! The New
York papers are making much clamor over
the tact that while Republican conventions
pass resolutions in favor of civil service re
lorm, a United States marshal declares to a
subordinate officer, whom he has Just remov?
ed, that for the removal there were only polit?
ical reasons, and none arising out of any offi?
cial shortcomings. Is that surprising when
the chief of the government, alter haring de?
clared himself in his mettam in tavor of civil
service reform, continually and persistently
removes officers whose official conduct was
unimpeachable, merely for the purpose ol
putting political tools In their places ? When
ne. as : nave shown to you In one instance,
carries the trade In consciences so far that the
world laughs at lt ? Like master, like man.
We ought to be surprised at nothing. No,
gentlemen, these are not trifles, which show
that from the highest position where a model
should be exhibited for imitation, that in?
fluence proceeds which undermines all ?ne
feeling of official honor.
On the reversal of the legal-tender decision,
he says : ?
I cannot take leave of this subject without
mentioning an event which has made a pro?
found, but, perhaps, not a prolound enough,
impression upon every thinking mind in this
country, io showing the decay ol' constitutional
life. I allude to the reversion of the decision
of the Supreme Court concerning the legal
tender act, In consequence of the appointment
of two new judges changing the majority ol'
the court. It has been charged that these
judges were appointed lor the very purpose of
effecting that end. Whether the charge is
well founded or not I am not able to say of
my own knowledge. Birt lt Is certain that
almost the whole country believes it to be but
too well founded, and that events have given
support to that belief. Neither do I attach
much importance to the question whether the
original legal-tender decision was right or
wrong. That ls not the question at issue.
But what is to become of th? authority ol our
courts: what of the popular respect for the
sanctity of law; what ol the fixity ol constitu?
tional principles, if the practice obtains of
packing the highest tribunal of Justice. In the
Republic like a ward caucus ? AlreadyflWe see
the consequences of such a precedent. Al?
ready we rind In Democratic papers the pro?
ject openly discussed of subverting the con?
stitutional amendment embodying the results
of the war by adding to the Supreme Court a
sufficient number of Judges sound on that
question, In case the Democrats obtain com?
plete possession of the government. Where
will this Republic land If nothing, nothing is to
remain untouchedbv the changing whims of
the unscrupulous partisan rule ? In auarchv,
under the guise ot law.
A COBEN I A L SHOO TING
[From the Camden Journal.]
On Thursday morning last, a little eon of Mr.
Anderson, who lives about iwenty miles from
town, was severely shot, under the lollowlng
circumstances: His father bad been down to
the swamp and had carried his gun along,
which, upon his return, he placed on a table
out in his yard. He then went down to his
watermelon patch, and while there heard the
gunfire. Hearing his wife scream, he ran to
the house, and upon arriving lhere, found
that his eldest Bon had been plaving with the
breech while the little fellow was examining
the muzzle of the gun. which had exploded
and shattered the first joint of the first finger
of the right hand, and also passed through the
flesh ot his right arm above the elbow. It is
the opinion of the physicians that he will re?
cover, and that no amputation, beyond taking
off one finger will be necessary.

THE CROPS IN GREENVILLE.
A Glut of Peaches and Famine of Ap
plea-The Wheat, Corn and Catto
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
GREENVILLE, 8. C., August 16.
The peach crop of 1371 deserves special com
ment and record. It is the largest ever known
in the up-country. Every tree everywhere,
under all circumstances, ls full of fruit. The
branches are breaking with the weight ot fruit
every hour, and you are startled night aud day
with the reports. Thousands of bushels are
fed to hogs, after all human wants are sup?
plied, and tens and thousands of bushels are
being distilled. The spring was so genial that
frost did not even thin out the bloom.
THE APPLE CROP OF 1871,
on the other hand, deserves special comment
and record. It ls almost a total failure. Here
and there In an orchard, a few trees have a
few apples; no trees loaded, and generally
they have none.
The conditions thus so favorable to the
peach, seem to have been adverse to the
THE CROPS OF 1871.
The wheat crop ls estimated at not more
than one-fourth, a little more than the seed
planted, and of inferior quality. This ls a
severe loss to the farmers, who are generally
very poor. But the crops of corn and cotton
were unsurpassed, and the disappointment
was borne with cheerfulness. Since then, the
drought of ten weeks reduced the prospect
from a more than full to half crop of cotton
and corn, and as the drought still continues,
the question ls, what shall we do? And no one
can answer. The partial showers have done
some good, but not much.?
The lazes loom up; winter supplies, debts
for fertilizers, debts for necessaries to make
crop and for labor, all make the prospect
gloomy. Five millions would not indemnify
the loss by the drought to this State alone.
The people here all rejoice and are refresh?
ed by your success In the election in Charles?
ton. It was truly, uQui meruitPalmamJerat."
The day ls breaking; this is the morning star.
ALL ABOUT THE STATE.

of bis own color, at Dick's Creek tunnel, in
Georgia, has been arrested In Pendleton.
-There ls a project on foot, In Georgia, to

five thousand five hundred dollars, made up

year's appropriation, unexpended, $8000; poll
tax, $1200; school tax, $1000. This is a large
fund, ample, we think, for the present wants
of the County. But only $800 ot this sum has

QUIRER will enter upon its seventeenth volume;
and the success with which the proprietor has
met in the past, m his efforts to publish a first
class Literary and Family paper, has Induced him
to present attractions In the future, superior to
any heretofore offered. With this view, and for
the purpose of securing
ORIGINAL SERIAL STORIES
of a high order, remunerative prizes were offered
for toe three best competitive stories. From a
large number that were submitted, a committee,
composed of disinterested and competent literary
gentlemen, selected as the most entertaining,
"AVLONA," "TEMPTATION," and "THE LOST
DIAMOND;" which, on opening the seals contain?
ing the anthon' names, were found to'be from
the pens of some of the most popular story wri?
ters; and these productions are pronounced equal
to the stories issued from any weekly press in the
THE PRIZE STORIES

the paper, and will be followed by three other
Original Stories of absorbing Interest, written ex?
pressly for the ENQUIRER, entitled, respectively,

ing," adapted to all classes, the Agricultural De?
partment, containing practical and useful Infor?
mation for the Farmer; "Reading for the Sab

man of marked ability, whose graceful pen embel?
lishes his department in every number; a column

appropriate topics: a compend of the News, at
home and abroad; Commercial and Market Re
ports, and being one of the l?gest papers pub?
lished In the South, printed In the best style on a

of every fireside, and sustain Its reputation as a

PRIZES TO SUBSCRIBERS.
With the determination to keep np with the
spirit of the times-the distribution of Prizes be?
ug a popniar Idea-the proprietor has deter?
mined to adopt a system of GIFT DISTRIBUTION
among the subscribers of the ENQUIRER, bnt upon
a plan different from that so prevalent, in which
brasa Jewelry, "dumb watches" and shuting pic?
tures are the chief attractions. It ls deemed pre?
ferable to award a substantial gift, in an equita?

roughly mixing the names, one name will be
drawn from the box-the person whose name
shall be so drawn to be entitled to a prize of FIVE
DOLLARS in cash, aa-AB names are added to the
hst they will be placed in the box.-ea The name
of the person drawn each week will be announced
in the issue of the paper succeeding the drawing,
