Tne son of life has crossertthe line:
Tbe summer-shine or lengthened light
Faded and failed, till where I stand
Tis equal day and equal night.
One after one, as dwindling hou-s,
Youth's glowing hopes have dropped away,
And soon may barely leave the gleam
That coldly seores a winter's day.
I am not young; I am not old ;
The flush or morn, the snnset calm,
Paling and deepening, each to each,
Meet midway with solemn charm.
One side I see the Summer fields
Not yet disrobed ot all their green;
While westerly, along the hills
Flame the flrat tints or frosty sheen.
Ab, middle point-, where cloud and storm
Make battle-ground of this, my life I
Where, even matched, the night and day
Wage round me their september strife t
I bow mc to the threatening gale;
I know when that is overpast.
Amone the peaceful harvest days.
An Indian Summer comes at last t
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Payment of Teachers while the Schools
The public schools in Abbeville were sus?
pended on June 23, 1871, and reopened in Feb?
ruary, 1872, and the teachers ask for a manda?
mus requiring the school commissioners to
countersign orders lor their pay during the
suspension, which orders were drawn by the
trustees ot the district. Judge Orr decides :
1. That Thomas M. Williamson, school com?
missioner, is not bound, mechanically, to sign
ali ?ich orders as the board or trustees may
draw on the county treasurer; but that he has
the power to close the schools or "limit the
school year according to Behool funds appor?
tioned to his county."
2 That, whilst the services of the relators
ought to be paid lor, and they may poss")ly
bave some remedy against those who employ?
ed them, or by application to the Legislature,
yet they were rendered after the schools had
been closed by order of the school commis?
sioner, when they were in fact no public
schools, and mandamus will not He to make
the school commissioner countersign orders
for said services.
THE GROWING CROPS.
In Newberry the weather is showery, with
good rains in many places.
The Abbeville Press Bays: "During the
past lew days we have been favored with re?
freshing rains, and are pleased to learn that
they have been very general. Sections of the
district have Buffered severely for want of
rain, and it was generally much needed. The
corn crops bave already suffered, but fruitful
seasons henceforth will do much to reinstate
them. Abbeville seems to have suffered more
this season than any of her sisters, and our
exchanges generally In the State report fina
The Williamsburg Star says: "We learn that
in some paris of the county the crops are
suffering very much tor the want ol rain. We
observed during a recent trip in the country
that the crops were looking very promising,
especially the cotton."
Tbe Orange")urg Times says: "The crops
have done splendidly and everything looks
lolly up to last year's show at this lime. The
labor market ls rather empty owing to a very ,
generally Increased disposition ot the colored
men to hire their patches and idle when not
ncti^ly engaged in said patches, which ls
onlyyhen absolutely necessary, and not al?
The Edgefleld Advertiser says: "In some
sections the cotton is small, and stands sorry,
yet with good seasons and a late tall, near an
average crop may be expected; whilst in other
portions of Edgefleld-a large belt across the
entire county-the colton crop ls. Indeed, un?
usually fine, and the husbandmen'are highly
elated with their prospect of realizing a large
yield and handsome profits in the harvest
We have from the planters of North Ala?
bama cheering accounts ot the crops. Cotton
ia somewhat backward, but doing well. Corn
ls in good condition. The wheat harvest has
begun, and we are told that the average yield
ls likely to be as great as In any previous year,
if not greater. -Huntsville Advocate.
The tanners in tbe vicinity of Pineapple, in
Wilcox, say their crops are suffering tor rain.
The past week bas not witnessed fast
growth of cotton; nights too cold and dry.
Second growth has caused additional hoeing
and trouble to planters. There ls little grass;
gronnd well cultivated, prospects ?ood. Corn
bas Improved rapidly.-Florence Journal, 12;/*.
Reports from the crops continue favora?
ble. The prospects for a corn crop are now
most encouraging. Cotton is also quhe prom?
ising, but lt is as yet altogether too early tn
tbe season to speculate as to this crop. Heavy
rains have ol ten blasted the flnept prospects
for cotton.-Greensboro' Beacon, 15th.
Throughout the-past week the weather bas
been as favorable as could be desired for the
planting interests. Cotton is growing finely,
and, where it has been properly earea tor, ls
a promising crop.-Carrol Republican, Provi?
l$e prospects for a good crop of cotton and
corn were never more precarious than at Ibis
time. Tbe dry weather of April retarded the
growth of cotton, and, with the late rains, the
cotton and corn are both needing work at the
same time. Tbe result is that tho crop ls more
uncertain than we bave ever seen it, as, on
one place, the cotton ls being worked to the
neglect or the corn, and on another the corn
to tbe neglect of tbe cotton, making one or
the other suffer upon nearly every farm. The
colton ls small, and, if. the next two weeks
are not favorable, ihe crop will presenta fair
sbowiag for a one-half crop - Panola Star.
We learn from some of our farming friends
tbat the crops of both corn and cotton are
doing very well-Indeed, are better than last
year at same time. Altogether things look
Hopeful, though the dull season has set in in
dead earnest, and the merchants complain of
no business, and weall complain of no money.
The following ls from the Field and Factory,
the official crop reporter of Mississippi: "We
deduce from onr crop and weather reports for
the month of May the following facts: Tbat
the acreage In cotton has been very little, if
any, reduced by the severe drought; but at
least one-half of the crop is very backward,
and unless we bave a propitious season and
late frosts the cotton crop must lall short of
an average one. The corn crop Is very back?
ward ana the plant small, but worked well
and in good condition, the prospect for a
large yield encouraging. Tbe late sown oats
almost a total failure; whereas red oats, sown
in the Tall and early winter, have made a good
We bear favorable accounts of ibe pros?
pects of Bea island cotton from various points
wtwre that staple is planted around Galveston
Bar. On the north shore, about Turi le Bay,
in Chambers County, on what ls known as
"The Bidge," Wallacevllle, Ac, the usual
breadth has been planted in the silky staple,
which ls doing well. "The Bidge," which Is
some three miles in length, ls divided into
good sized farms, and each planter has a por?
tion of bis acres in sea Island. No worm bas
yet appeared, and the prospect is fair fora
good crop. At Virginia Point, Judge Jones,
who may be regarded as the pioneer in the
planting of the sea Island varieties on the
shores of Galveston Bay, und who has made it
a success, bas a breadth of about one hundred
acres in, and a good stand. Two and a half
miles north of the point, near Campbell's Bay?
ou, lhere are about twenty acres and a good
stand. Here no worm has yet put In an ap?
pearance.- Flake's Bulletin June 13.
The Gonzales Inquirer, says that the crop
prospects are as flattering as could be desired,
darring the slight damage sustained by a few
farms from the grasshoppers and Ihe recent
The Austin State Journal hos been presented
with a colton bloom. The season 11ms far has
been more favorable to (be crops than ever
before known in Texas.
The Clarkville (Red Blver) Standard says
that farmers are pressed to get their crops
clean, but are working manfully and will soon
be out. Corn and cotton are thrifty, and the
real warmth of the summer having set in will
fairly Jump now, unless there are excessive
rains which would be out of season. The few
wheat crops In the county are excellent.
The Position of the English Spinnen.
The United States Economist, (New York,)
ofthe22d instant, says: "The attention of
the cottoL trade, both in Europe and America,
lajust no? directed to the growing crops in
Ctib Southern States, with an Intensity of in?
terest that was only paralleled during ihe cot?
ton crisis induced by our civil war. The very
large deficiency in the American cotton crop
last year was not followed by any corresponding
reduction In consumpi lon either io this country
or in Europe, and neither the scarcity of the
American staple or the comparatively high
prices tbat have ruled for it during the last
lew months produced any effect in stimulat?
ing supplies trom other sources. The results
are that at the present rate of consumption
the supply of cotton from all quarters will
only barely suffice until the new American
crop becomes available. But even here there
Is a difficulty; cotton spinners In Encland man?
ifest a areal and increasing repugnance to the
use ot East India cotton. Nearly four hundred
thousand bales are now lying almost unsale?
able lu Europe. The reluctance to nae it may
be best illustrated by the fact that although
American cotton ls now from seren lo ten
cents per pound higher than it was last year nt
this time, and although the stock is Deina rap
dly reduced, yet the choicest kinds of East
Indian is only 1 to 2c. per pound dearer, and
sales for average qualities are difficult and
scarce at lost year's rates; and this,'too, In
view of a reduced supply this year from
the East. On the 30lh ol May middling Or?
leans was quoted in Liverpool at ll jd., while
best Surat was only 5.?a6.id. per pound. The
fact IB, nothing but a downright cotton famine
can force East Indian Into general consump?
tion. It certainly has nnt held its own with
manufacturers during the last few yeara. Nor
is thlB to be wondered at. The fibre as com?
pared with the American staple ls In every
way inferior. It is difficult to manufacture,
the existing machines must be adapted to its
use, ut considerable cost, and finally, the
manufactured article is coarse and Inferior,
and has neither the textile strength nor finish
ot the American article. From these and
other causes, the average consumption of East
Indian colton is decreasing, while the con?
sumpi ion of American and all oilier kinds is
increasing. The high price of cotton during
the lost few months hos produced a great de?
pression In Manchester. Many spinners are
manufacturing without profits, and a number
have actually experienced a loss on their
recent operations. The fact ls once more ap?
parent that cotton cannot be profitably manu?
factured In England when it advances above
9d. or lOd. sterling per pound. It has been
above these figures for some lime, and the re?
sult is a depression In the trade that begins lo
excite serious misgivings, not only in Man?
chester, but algo throughout England."
