weay'th county agricultural societies do.
But we do not think that they could devise
conmmercial or financial schemes , to' control
or regulate prices. Nor could any concert of
action be so agreed upon, and adhered to, as
to control prices by holding up large amounts
of Cotton until the supplies, pressed *by -sel
lets on the market, are exhausted
The amount of Cotton Is too large-the
nuinberof producers too numerous, nd scat
tered ovr teo immense an extent of country,
and their capacity to hold on to their crops
'varies too much, according to their debts, or

One reason, amng many others, why Cot
ton is so low, is that a large class of specula
tori in Europe who formnerly. bought Cotton
when it reached.a low price, s a good invest-.
nient, are an longot in existence. The capi

engineer of thiM road, comimenced letting
out the contracts for grald,&. between
this village and LgYnihes, Creek; n i
17h linst. On ihe'20th -ie informed us
that bontracts had been made for.. the
whole of'Iht. distonce. Jn a' short tiide
the first spadeful of earth will be thrown
up for the trackof-thle road.
A FRIENDLY CAUTION.
We deem i our duty to caution the villa.
gers in regard'to leaving obstructions to free
passage in the street arid on the side walk
On the dark', cold' and rainy night of' the
18th, a gentleman of the village, whilekwalk-..
iig quickly, ivas" throsvn 'over by strking
against acoton.bale left lying on the,.side
walk. lis cap and umbrella flew in different
dirctions,and he wes thrown on the muddy
walk. Such an- occurrence is unpleasant at
any time, and exceedingly so on such a night,
"A woid to the wiso is sufficient."
The main street of our, village, running in
front of the Court House, is being continued.
in a straight direction,'at its southern extre
mnity, through the land of Mr. I. Dxo1.E,
and will be 'extended in the sarne manner- to
Whena hning crosswise to Pocotaligo.
hncompleted, this will be a convenience
to travellers in that direction, lessening the
distance about a mnil6, and an improvement to
the appearance and approach in that quarter
of the village. It is, proposed to erect tene
ments on the newv street. The same is also
intended at the northern and north-eastern
extretnities of the village, as there is 'some
demand for dwellings.
A brilliant Aurora Borealis was visible
here early on the evening of the 17th.
Sonmc of the weather-wvise prophesied cold
and snowv within 48 hours. or a little later,
and such was the result.
The-morning light of the 19th brought
to our notice the full of, winter's fleecy
blanket of-.snowv, wvhich had taken place
dluring the previous night, end covered the
roofs with a thickness varying from a half
inch'to an inch. A bright sun' soon can
sed, it to disappear.

RAYMOND & Co's.. MENAGERIE.
The-18th was the most .disagreeable day
wvhich has visited us for a long time, a heavy,
cold and chilling rain prevailing the whole
day as well as the previous night. Notwith
etsuding this unpleasant state of the weoather,
theo menagerie ,mtered the village, and' was
open at the appointed hour. The tent was
thrdcgedI for, many we're induced to be pre
sent by a desire to. see Mr. Shatrer drive a
lion,"and Mr; hAflbfer enter the den of the
wvil boasts and exhibit her supromacy over
therm. These things Wv'rn done, to the aton..
isment of some and' thei fear of others. The
public, however, vere disappointed in the
mnall number of the boasts exhilbited and ii
fih'didi thit' the boasted boa constrictor was
not more 'than someo12 or 15 feet in length.
This latter circums~tance was probably owing
to the coolness of the weather, which very
much contracted the length of the reptile. A
length of somie 2( feet. was the lonas expected
