CHARLESTON WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 1, 1872.
EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR.
THE LIBERAL CAMPAIGN.
THE MEANING OE THE APPROACHING
Why Senator Schurz Signed the Call.
CBICAGO, June 14.
The announcement irom New York that
Senator Schurz had signed the call lor a meet?
ing in sympathy with the party headed by
William Collen Bryant, receives flat contra?
diction from Mr. Schurz's friends. He was
not asked to a conference to take action
against the Cincinnati nominees. The repre?
sentations made to him were that the meeting
was to be composed of those In opposition to
the present administration, and the question
of the Cincinnati movement up to this time
has had no part in the proposed movement, BO
far as lt ls understood by the friends ot Mr.
The St Louis Republican, to-morrow, will
contain the following, attesting the correct'
ness of the assertions of Mr. Schurz's friends.
Says the Republican, in the exact language
suggested by Mr. Schurz in reference to the
proposed New York consultation:
The meeting or gentlemen opposed to the
re-election ol Grant, which, according to adis
?atch published yesterday, will be held in New
brk on the 20th of this month, ls to be com?
posed of men representing all the different
shades of the. opposition,'and not, as has been
suggested In some quarters, of men unfavor?
able to Mr. Greeley as a candidate for the Pres?
idency. Its purpose ls to unite all the elements
of opposition to comuioa action. The list of
the signers of the invitation can hardly have
been complete, as we are Informed on trust?
worthy authority that the use of the name of
Senator Schurz was obtained only upon the
understanding that the Invitation should be
signed also by some other gentlemen known
to be friendly to Mr. Greeley, and distinctly
representing the Cincinnati nominees, and
should be addressed to prominent men known
to be of the same way of thinking.
The Republican further states that the "as?
sumption which has gone out from the East
that because Mr. Schurz was disappointed In
the result of the Cincinnati nominations he
will not support Mr. Greeley, ls very far from
being true. We have no doubt whatever that
the senator, should uo opportunity be em?
braced before, will in his own emphatic man?
ner establish the troth of this statement at
the meeting in New York on the 2 o th. The
senator regards it as now certain that the
only candidates lor President before the peo?
ple next November will be Greeley and
What ls Said About lt In Washington.
WASHINGTON, June 14.
The existence of the circular, published in
New York this morning with so much parade*
contal nine: the names ot Senator Carl Schurz,
Jacob D. Cox, William Cullen Bryant, Oswald
Ottendorfer, David A. Wells, and Jacob Brink
erhoff, recommending a meeting and confer?
ence of gentlemen opposed to the present ad?
ministration, at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, on
the 20tb instant, was known to many promi?
nent politicians here when lt was first circu?
lated, but it was not deemed proper to refer
to lt lo a public manner until lt should come to
the eyes ol the public through the regular
channel. The meeting ou the 20tb, if lt cakes
place at all, will not, it is well known, be un?
friendly to Mr. Greeley. Every gentleman sign?
ing that cal!, with, lt may be, one exception,
will heartily support the Cincinnati ticket, al?
though they were all originally strongly op?
posed to the selection of Mr. Greeley, and the
call expressly sets forth that lt is to be a
conference of gentlemen opposed lo the pres?
enta dm inls t ra tio u.
Political Talk In Was ll In gt UR.
WASHINGTON, June 14.
The administration is working upon Senator
Sumner through several, sharp colored politi?
cians, IQ prevent him irom openly declaring
in favor of the Cincinnati nominees. The sen?
ator said recently that the nominations at
Philadelphia demonstrated that tbe military
cllqne at the While House have no regard
whatever for the interests of the Republican
par.'y, and that this clique was determined to
both role and ruin it.
The news from every quarter received
through au extensive correspondence at the
Greeley and Brown headquarters in this oliy
ls of the moat encouraging character. Let?
ters from prominent Republicans in many of
the Eastern and Western StateB who will not
pronounce ia favor of Greeley and Brown
until after the Baltimore Convention give as?
surances that at least twenty-five per cent, ot
the Republican votes will be given for those
gentlemen should the; be endorsed at Balti?
more. As a sample of many other letters, the
following extractB are given from a letter
dated at St, Anthony's Falls, Minnesota :
"Hun most happy to be able to state that a
decided majority of the Republicans of this
city are in favor ol Greeley and Brown, and In
the event they are endorsed at Ballimore,
Minnesota will give them a majority of twen?
The news from the mining regions of Penn?
sylvania is very satisfactory. . It is thought by
gentlemen well Informed that In that section
of the State one-third of the Republicans will
vole for Mr. Greeley, as he is recognized as a
true friend of laboring men.
The Democratic opponents ot Mr. Greeley in
Washington have been quietly Laying their
plans for Borne time, and have bad great hopes
of success until very lately. The action of the
State Democratic Conventions held In Kansas,
Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa and Wiscon?
sin, bas completely overwhelmed them, and
they are forced to admit that there is a stam?
pede of the Democratic party to Greeley.
They feel now that the case ls hopeless tor
them unless they can get Mr. Greeley to with?
draw, and of this they admit lhere is very lit?
tle chance. *
lt ls beyond all doubt thal Maryland and Vir?
ginia will send solid delegations lor Mr. Gree?
ley to Baltimore.
No Earthly Deubt of Baltimore En?
[From Brooks's New York Express, Dem.]
Information now concentrated here leaves
no earthly doubt of the nomination ot Greeley
at Baltimore by a great, a very great majori?
ty, probably two-thirds and more. The nomi?
nation will be a cheerful, hearty one, and will
thus start commanding success. Wheo the
nomination ls made, nine hundred and ninety
nine oat ot every one thousand Democrats will
come into the Hue, and for every Democrat
lost there will be tea Republican galos. We
novfk-hnve, as lar as conventions have been
hela, every Western State pronouncing for
Greeley, including-and very unexpectedly
Indiana, despite Dan. Yoorhees's pronuncia
meato. Hendricks, the old staunch Democrat,
and George W. Julian, the earliest ot the old
Abolitionists, have joined hands there, and a
Republican is run on the general Congress
ticket with Kerr, (Democrat.) Bendricks
will be ' elected, thea' go to the Senate,
nod tbet Democratic candidate lor lieuten?
ant-governor, who is a Methodist of
great wealth, will take his place aa Governor
ol the Suit. Morton will thus be permitted
to stay at home. The Eastern States will all
be Greeley. Tbere sra a lew exceptions-one,
perhaps, in Rhode Island. The Central States
will ail be Greeley. Delaware excepted, whose
eyeB have not yet been opened to the tact
that the thirteenth and fourteenth amend?
ments are irrevocably in the Federal consti?
tution. There may be some little trouble
irom New Jersey, but lhere are no great signs
of lt. The majority of the Pennsylvania dele?
gation are known to be for Greeley, and la
*he end the vote of the State, lt Is believed,
will be a unit The Southern States, without
excepilon, will be Greeley, unless there be a
divided vote Irom Georgia, where the Bour?
bon element has not yet heard of the civil war.
In Ballimore, where the convention ls to be
held, the enthusiasm for Greeley is Interne.
The b'hoys are preparing the biggest sort of
demonstrations to welcome the New Yorkers
and all the other States of the Union. The
big ball ls rolling-and whoever does not roll
ou with lt, will roll under.

THE LABOE STRIKE LU JSEW YORK
Beginning of tho Long Branch Season
The Radical Summer Mecca-Mr. Ben?
nett's Funeral-The Future or the
Herald-Arrival of the Heated Term.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ]
NEW YORK, June 12.
' The labor strikers are not going to achieve
the great triumph they anticipated. The
"eight boure' demonstration'' on Monday was
a failure. Instead of thirty thousand men In
line, there were 'CBS than three. Many trades
refused to join the procession at the last mo?
ment. Yesterday the cause was still further
demoralized hythe caving in ot the employees
of Singer's sewing machine factory, over fif?
teen hundred in number. These men returned
to ten hours labor, their old hours, and aban?
doned the exaction of twenty per cent, ad?
vance in wages, after having stayed away
from work one week. They adopted a set of
resolutions humiliating themselves in the dust,
which doubtless was the price of their em?
ployers' forgiveness. The present strike will
prover only a partial victory. Some of the
strikers have succeeded; others still hold out;
but many have returned to work minus a
couple of weeks' wages. The sympathy of
the community is usually with the working?
men, but the violence which has characterized
the present movement has deprived It of
much of ibe outside moral puppert which ls
necessary to its success. Still the great ques?
tion ls by no m&ns settled. The working?
men surrender because their ammunition hos
given out, but they surrender sullenly, and
with a determination to renew the war at the
The summer season began at our suburban
watering place, Long Branch, yesterday by
the advent there of the President and his
train wf domestics, military secretaries, bull
dogs and horses and political hangers on. The
court took possession ol the handsome cottage
by the sea and others In its neighborhood,
and for the coming two months there will be
the seat of government of the United States.
A brilliant season is expected at the Branch
this year. It is true that two of the three :
ruling spirits of the great fashionable resort ,
in the past have been snuffed out. Fisk, who ,
did more to build np Long Branch than any
other man except Grant, ls dead. Helmbold 1
le in a lunatic asylum. But it they can reap
pear no more, they at least established the
notoriety of the place before they left, and lt
can now flourish without them.
Ail the hotels will open for the' reception of
guests next Saturday. New steamboat and
railroad connections with New York and
Philadelphia have .been perfected. The
through Journey can now be made between
this city and the Branch in an hour andAhree
quarters. During the past winter and spring
over a hundred new and expensive villas have
been erected by private gentlemen. Some ol .
the diplomatic corps have rented cottages for
the season, and the rich theatrical people
have gone there In greater numbers than '.
ever. Still, Long Branch is not in favor with '.
"our best lamilles." It Is munificently pat- i
ronized by the shoddy people. Tue politi?
cians and the sporting fraternity, Fisk, Grant
and Helmbold, are very fair types of the !
classes which frequent lt most and give tone
to Its society. Our ''aristocracy," whetner
o? birth or Intellect, Instinctively shrink from :
euch associates. Probably Newport Is the 1
watering place most favored by the exclu- '
elves. It has lost something ot its summer :
business of late years, but has gained more j
proportionately in heavy respectability. >
After lying in state for two weeks, the re- i
mains of Mr. Bennett, of the Herald, will be }
burled In Greenwood Cemetery to-morrow, i
The son and heir arrived from Europe in the 1
steamer yesterday, and first heard of his i
lather's death from the Sandy Hook pilot. ]
Though he had been summoned nome In haste, i
he had not expeeteu me mun nu wa so soon. 1
He bad the mournful satisfaction, however, i
of looking upon his father's lace once more. 1
The keeping of a body so long before burial ls \
unusual. The embalming wes only partially ?
successful, and decay, assisted by the hot I
weather, bas been rapid. The countenance of i
the deceased ls said to have changed BO much '.
as scarcely to be recognizable.
The younger Bennett becomes sole owner :
and publisher of the Herald. Hitherto he has :
shown more luterest In sporting matters than j
Journalism. It romains to be Been If, with the
possession o? a great positionne will feel the 1
the weight of the new responsibility, and will
turn from bis pleasures to duty as Prince
Harry did when he became king. It hardly
seems probable, though, that Mr. Bennett will
take his father's place. If he ever had any
last? for Journalism he would have exhibited
lt before now. The report is that the property
is given to bim on condition that lt shall
never go out of the family. Mr. Bennett, Jr.,
has bad the advantages of a liberal education
and better social surroundings than his lather,
and it may reasonably be expected that he
will elevate the Herald to a higher plane than
that it basso long occupied. With Its cir?
culation and notoriety, and the money behind
lt, it might aspire to be the real "Thunderer"
in American Journalism.
We have summer weather at last. Up to the
latter part of last week the. days were cool,
and overcoats were necessary for evening out?
door wear. With the heat came swarms ot
mosquitoes-six weeks at least belora their
time, and fleas Innumerable. Southern visi?
tors are arriving ia great numbers, and scat?
tering off to the watering places and moun?
tains. Yon would be surprised to know of
the hundreds of Southern families who spend
the entire summer in the mountain villages of
Vermont and Western Massae hus ens, and
along the banks o? the Connecticut and Narra?
gansett. It would almost seem as If there
were no mountains and rivers worth visiting
in the South. As of pld, what is made at
home In the winter ls brought here to build
up the great North in the summer time.
THE HEW TOBACCO TAX.
A Serious Misunderstanding of the
Provisions .ot the Law.
WASHINGTON, June 17.
The tobacco manufacturers who have been
storing large quantities of tobaoco In bonded
warehouses since the 6th of June, tbe day
when the new revenue law was signed by the
President, are astonished at the recent decis?
ion of Commissioner Douglass that tobacco
put In bond aluce that date and withdrawn tor
consumption must pay the present tax ot
thirty-two cents per pound. The commis?
sioner s .ya that the working of the law la to
that effect, and that only the tobacco in bond
on that day is entitled to be withdrawn after
July 1st at the new rate ot twenty cents per
Telegrams and letters in large numbers were
yesterday received irom merchants in New
York, Philadelphia, Ballimore and Richmond,
as'r.lug If there was not some mistake. Mr.
Douglass replied that he had no discretion In
the matter, and that the parlies aggrieved
must ur>peai to Congress for relief.
A number of tobacco dealers are under the
Impression that alter July 1st they will be en?
titled to have the difference bet ween the old
tax of thirty-two cents and the new tax of
twenty cen-s on all tobacco io their possession
returned ia them, but Commissioner Douglass
ls preparing a letter to the effect ibat such ap?
plications are useless, as no such provision ls
made In the new law.

A Procession all Over Boston-Twenty
Thousand Voices in Full Blast.
BOSTON, June 17.
The grand International Peace Jubilee opens
with delightful weather and brilliant prospects
of success. The special feature in the morn?
ing was the arrival of the British Band about
sunrise, while cannon were firing and-Dells
ringing in celebration of the battle of Bunker
Hill. The band was received at the depot by
the jubilee executive committee and break?
fasted at the quarters.
The reception procession for all the visiting
bands, except the French, (which had lis r??
ception last, week,) formed at eight o'clock,
and embraced delegations of all the British,
scotch and German societies of Boston and
vicinity, and citizens generally. The First
Regiment M. V. M. acted as escort, with a
cavalry battalion and the boston Fusiliers.
Dense crowds thronged the sidewalks and
windows along the whole route, and the
visitors received a hearty welcome. All the
bauds appeared In parade dress. A review by
the city government and a collation ended the
People are pouring into the city from all
quarters and by all conveyances. Every State
and Territory ls represented in the chorus al?
ready hpre. The city is decorated with flags,
and nearly all business ls suspended.
The last touches hare been made to the
Coliseum building, and lt is far superior to the
former o.ie. Great crowds, including people
from all parts of the country, are In the vici?
nity, attracted by curiosity. The grand chorus
assembled for the first tim? In the Coliseum
this morning, assumed the, seats assigned to
them for the Jubilee, and rehearsed the pro?
gramme of this afternoon's concert. Cari
Zerrahn, Herr Strauss, Franz At>t and Gil?
more, in turn, assumed the baton.
The Pirat rx*t'? Programme.
Tt will be seen by the above dispatches that
the tremendous enterprise, over *vhlch little
Boston and little Mr. Gilmore have gone well
nigh crazy, has begun under the most auspi?
cious circumstances, and with a favorable aug?
ury of a success proportionate to the size of the
undertaking. The final preparations for the
affair and the programme of the first day's
concert are described as follows by a Boston
correspondent of the World:
The lime ls now drawing near when the
walls of the Coliseum shall resound with the
mush al enormity ot the Peace Jubilee-that
hypertrophy of sweet Bound-that elephantia?
sis of tone. The painters are doing their best,
and are making the building a sight which, to
the New England mind, is "truly Inspiring,"
and by the time next week shall nave arrived.
Mr. Roeth, tbe great decorator, will have done
his utmost to make the structure bright and
decorous, and flint, as the Frenchman said of
Napoleon's tomb, with the "grand, the sub?
lime and the proper." The celling of the re- i
ceptiou room ls. receiving its white cloth, 1
which will be frescoed; the floor of the parquet i
will Boon be planed and polished till it shines I
like a barn door, or like tue face of a regene?
rated esoteric philosopher chanting orphic
rhymes, and, to crown all, Dr. Willcox
will gratuitously Introduce in the great organ :
the megalophonia slop to drown the poor lillie
vox humana and vox coelestls. The whole af
lair will be conducted on strictly temperance
principles, so far as the welting of whistles ls
concerned, and at the Coliseum not one drop
of ale, wine, or liquor ol any degree of ardor
will be sold, save only lager beer, which the
foreign musicians must have or die. The 1
notion of having liquor exclusively for <
foreigners ls one of those amiable pieces of I
humbug of which the Bostones? are BO eml- i
aently capable. The dark and mysterious I
bourbon and rum will not, however, be walled I
up, aod ns of old men-even strangers-may :
with safety attempt to explore them. It is l
supposed that the Grenadier Guards will ar- '
rive here from fair Albion next week, and
Brltlsh-born residents have already set about
ta make arrangements to give them a graud
reception. It will be a flue affair, aud lt ls
rumored that some of the Harvard boys think
of challenging the band to an International
musical regatta tobe blown and sailed on the
Charles River. These Britishers must be
beaten In some way and-best of all ways-on
Amerlcan'soll. The band Balled from Queens?
town, in the City of Brussels, on Friday last,
and will have ample time to brush np its mu?
sical and aquatic knowledge on the trip.
The Prussian band will room at the Lancas?
ter House and the Marine band at the Quincy
House. SHU everybody is os busy as a nailer
rehearsing. Last night the Boston Club had a
mass rehearsal In Music Hall, whero Professor
Tonrjee directed it. On Thursday the Handel
and Haydn Society, the West Roxbury Union,
the Lynn Choral Union, and the Salem Orato?
rio will show In Music Hali a Jubilee apprecia?
tion of "Israel In Egypt." New Yorkers will
doubtless be overjoyed to bear that all the
lesilval bands will visit New York when the
Jubilee has snag and blown and twanged Itself
out of breath, wind, muscle and patience.

Gilmore has planned opens on Monday with a
remarkable programme, as follows:

PAXTON, ILLINOIS, June 17.
A construction trula on the Lafayette,

TBE GENEVA TRIBUNAL.
Both Governments Fighting- Shy-The
English Agent Decline? to Present the
British Cage, and Pleads for an Ad?
GENEVA, June 17.
The question of adjournment will occupy
the tribunal to-day, and probably longer, as
the arguments can only be heard to-day. and
the delicate issues Involved will not be deter?
mined hastily. The English case was not pre?
sented Saturday. The American argument
was presented to the courela an octavo vol?
ume of six or seven hundred pages, with a
smaller supplementary volume printed only
in the English language, and tbe American
agent declared himself ready to proceed.
Tne English agent failed to comply with the
stipulated formality of presenting papers, and
simply asked for an adjournment in order that
the governments might have a further
opportunity to endeavor to reconcile their
differences on one main point at Issue, but he
did not ask lor an adjournment tor a fixed
period or definite number of months. The
Americans answered that the request of an
adjournment without the presentation of final
papers was not according to the procedure
laid down In the treaty, and that they found
th?mseives in the presence of an eventuality
not contemplated by their Instructions. They
hoped, therelore, that the tribunal would not
decide without giving them an opportunity to
refer the subject by telegraph to the United
States Government, inasmuch as the whole
legal ground upon which the tribunal stands is
a comparatively unexplored region, the exact
character?and power of the arbitrators not
being well defined, and the scope and limit of
their power being undetermined. It wjs
Judged wise to accept this proposition, and
Munday was fixed os the day upon which the
couosel should present, in the light Of their
latest advices from the two governments,
their argumenta upon the point (resented by
the English Government. It thus becomes
apparent that neither government has thought
It sate to trust Its case altogether to KB agents
here,.but each keeps up such constant com?
munication by telegraph that in fact the
real agent for EnglAd ls Earl Granville,
and for America Secretary Fish. As the
English representatives have uncompromis?
ingly adhered to their determination not to
present their papers, lt is but natural to sup
pose that the Americans will also adhere to
their views that the English are ' not properly
In court, and that they uuk,the court to wan?
der from Its juridiction on* a point tor which
the treaty makes no.provision. Il the English
Insist that they are properly In court an Im?
portant consequence will follow, for If they
are In court they are bound to recognize the
validity of Its judgments, no matter upon what
point. It ls possible, therefore, that they may
suddenly Cud themselves involved In a posi?
tion from which they could not escape with?
out flagrant disregard of diplomatic propriety
and disrespect to the tribunal. The proceed?
ings on Monday will, however, depend entire?
ly on the latest dispatches irom Earl Granvlllo
to the English agent. The Americans are
fully Instructed as to every step, but the Eng?
lish are drilling, and lt Is impossible to say
with what result. They are availing them?
selves ol every chance io ascertain the temper
of the court and how far the Americans will
go In conceding lenglh ol time on the adjourn?

It "meant business," and as the great beast
stood erect lashing bis tawny sides with

be was "monarch of all he surveyed."
The Utile "kitten" or baby lion partook of
the general excitement, and mewed piteously.
At limes ihe lioness would seize lt In her
mouth and look lurlouely about, as if upon
the point of leaping into the darkness in
search of a safe retreat, aod lor a time things '
looked squally. The lion lamer, however,
was at work, and procuring a stout rope he
succeeded In throwing lt over the head of the
male lion, and In a few moments he waa se?
curely fastened to a tree. The female, how?
ever, wlthf a perverseness peculiar to her sex,
and perhaps Infuriated by ihe recent loss of
two of her "kittens," waB not so tractable and
showed light; but Professor White's determin?

one waa seriously Injured, nor were any very
valuable animals hurt. Four cars, with their

dangerous ones that were let loose. Great
credit Is due to Professor White for his intre?

POETS AND WOMEN.
Their Missionen nd Their Privilege.
[By Oliver Wendell Bolmes.]
A woman, notwithstanding she la the best
of listeners, knows her bnelness, and lt Is her
business I o please. I don't say that it is. not
her business to vote, but I do say that the
woman who does not picaseis a false note in
the harmonies of nature. She may not have
youth or beauty, or even manner; but she
must have something in her voice or expres?
sion, or both, which lt makes you feel better
disposed towards yonr race to look at or listen
to. She knows that BB well as we do; and her
first question alter yon have been talklngyour
soul Into her consciousness is, Did I please ?
A woman never forgets her sex. She wonld
rather talk with a man than an angel, any
The less there ls of sex abont a woman, the
more she ls to be dreaded. But take a real
woman at her best moment?, well dressed
enough to be pleased with herself, not so
resplendent as to be a show and a sensation,
with the varied outside influences that set
vibrating the harmonic notes of her nature
stirring in the air about her-and what has
social lite to compare with one of those vital
Interchanges of thought and feeling with ber
that make an hour memorable ? What can
equal her tact, her delivery, ber subtlety of
apprehension, her quickness to feel the
changes of temperature as the warm and cool
currents of talk blow by turns? At one mo?
ment she ls microscopically Intellectual, criti?
cal, scrupulous in Judgment as an analyst's
balance, and the next as sympathetic as the
open rose that sweetens the mind from what?
ever quarter it flads its way to her bosom.
' That poets are treated as privileged persons
hy their admirers and the educated public can
hardly be disputed. That they consider them?
selves so there 1B no doubt whatever. On the
whole, I do not know so easy a way of shirk?
ing nil tbe civil and social an J domestic duties
as lo settle it in one's mind that one Is a poet.

Impulsive feat of terpsichorean agility, so th
the occasion after all was really a jolly ai

listeners with heroic fortitude, and Wltl

TO THE EDITOR OF TBE SEWS.
Let us bave it, and In profusion; the objec?
tion to the tapping of the upper Edlsto by tbe
few rice planters, at its outlet, notwithstand?
The tapping of the Edlsto," at the point pro?
posed, will not ruin their lands.
It may (or may not) have the effect of ren?
dering them less available for rice culture, but
lt will enhance their availability for the culture
ef the doest cottons, lor sugar-cane, and for
provisions of all kinds.
Moreover, there are thousands of acres of
rich swamps and bottoms, upon that noble
river, around and above "Wllltown," that are
now so liable to overflow as to be unfit for any
agricultural purposes. Tirase areas will be
enhanced an hundred-fold In value by tbe pro?
posed depletion of the upper Edlsto.
While, therefore, the region near the ocean
may be rendered less safe for the culture o?
rice, (a culture most certainly on tbe wane in
Carolina,) that very region will obtain greater
facilities for the cultivation o? all other cereals,
and of tbe great Btaple of the country. The
vast "Pon Pon Lands" will be made to bloom
and blossom. Where the swampy prairie now
only can be seen, corn-fields will laugh and
sing; the healthiness of the whole region will
be vasily improved, and the State, or body

WASHINGTON, Jone 17.
The following is a bri ei synopsis ol the state*
ment of area and condition o? Ute present cot?
ton crop, which will appear in the Jana report
of the department ol agriculture : ^
AD Increase in the cotton area ls reported Ia
every State. A very small proportion ot coun?
ty returns show a decrease of acreage.
Planting was generally retarded,by a protract?
ed season of drought, and rle.ds that were
planted late occasioned some tron?le la
obtaining perfect stands, bnt the recent
rains and renewed efforts in replanting
have finally, secured ; stands; .-af j Average
completeness. The percentage of increase
la area-last year's crop being tbe basis of
comparison-ls as follows: North Carolina,
sixteen; South Carolina, nine;Georgia, twelve;
Florida, ten; Alabama, eleven; Mississippi,
ten; Louisiana, eleven; Texas, eighteen; Ar?
kansas," sixteen; Tennessee, twelve. The'
average Increase throughout the cotton States
will aprox?mate thirteen per cent.. Texas has
naturally made the largest relative increase,
not only in having enjoyed a favorable season
tor planting, but also during the last year hav?
ing received accessions of emigrants who are
cotton planters. The condition ot the plant
throughout the cotton section is very nearly a
full average. Separating the Atlantic lrom
the more Western States, the' former
stand a little below - the average; tho
latter are fully up to the standard. of fair
condition. The drought which prevailed ia
April and the first half of May delayed growth,
and cold nights in the more northern belt bad
a further retarding effect, bot the abundant
rains and genial temperature which followed
have.wonderfully Invigorated and advanced,
the crop. Tho following figures represent the
condition of cotton In the several States, one
hundred standing for an average: North Oar-,
olino, ninety-six; South Carolina, ' ninety-two;
Georgia, ninety-six; Florida, ninety-five; Ala?
