Cotton Progfccts in th? Sont li.
The following extract is from a
letter from a very intelligent gentle?
man residing near Vicksburg, Missis?
sippi, who enjoys the amplest facili?
ties for obtaining correct information
on the subject of which he writes.
Those interested in the cotton crop
may rely upon bis statements :
"I have never seen crops look finer
.where the seed were good. But
much old seed was planted and has
failed to come up. Mr. E-has,
for example, plowed up and replant?
ed 300 acres. He has uot yet finish?
ed, and many are in his fix. It is
now raining very hard, and has been
doing so ever since last night; and I
have little doubt that the West is en?
countering the same trouble. With
us the high water is a terrible danger
and curse. The South is almost en?
tirely overflowed and tho rivers high
and rising; and a flood from the
North coming down on the top of all,
increased and sustained by heavy and
disastrous raina The crops are so
late that weed!, grass, and cotton
must all come rp together, and the
lan ter, stinted in labor and injured
y grass and weeds, must fail.
*The present overflow cannot nov?
:bly run off in time to plant the
undated lands in cotton, and out
dependence will be in corn. It
a rare occurrence that cotton plant
later than the present period oi
e year yields moro than half a
rop, and the overflow will be upon
for weeks to come. During an ex?
perience of over thirty years in the
South, I have r?ver known so large
an amount of water to fall in the
month of April as has fallen in the
m<- ith just n?sset Such is also the
experience of ill I have conversec
with. May (now just commenced) is
bountifully 'supplying us with tht
..music of "falling waters;" and if she
continues the strain, Southern peoph
will dance from another cause than
joy. I only hope that rain will cease
and' give those not overflowed a last
: Chance to clean their cotton.
"Of one thin^. ii?wever, you maj
feel assured, tTwit: That water, in
its phases, has as snrely settled the
cotton question, as the snows of Rus
sia settled the invasion of Napoleon
<The crop is forced to be short.
"Labor, in its present meagn
Suantity, has been concentrated ir
ie rich valleyi of the Mississipp
and her tributaries, a large extent o
which has not been prepared for cul
tivation. Of that portion which ha
been prepared, a very large portion i:
now under water and cannot be ren
dered available this season. Beside
all this, I fear fie crab grass, which
when thoroughly set around th<
plant, cannot be displaced, withou
destroying it, akd-'as you know tba
cottony cannor>p,- worked when th<
earth is wet, i fear tnat such will b<
