Cotton planters and farmers throngh
out all the cotton growing states watcI
with intense interest the prices of this ar
ticle. Still the experience of a long se
ries of years conclusively slhews that no
thing more than a lowv'average price cai
be ex pected -and obtained. Week alte
week, the papers give the sales; and wera
we to sity that from 5 to 6 cents is the av
eralge, it w"ould generally be correct. 1
must he mortifying to the planters contin
ually to hope for an increase in price ani
be disappointed. Under such circumi
stances and in view of the results of Ioni
experience, they would cqwell not to ex
pect prices above a oe'rthin average ani
make their caloiilations and.pxpensen ac

attendant ha rrnasing anxieties.
In accordance wvith our cu:stom and tIe
repeated requests of our subscribers, w
give the price of cotton in the Charlestoi
market, at the last report, as at from 5 1
to 6 1.4, varying, we perceive, but littl
from the average above mentioned.
