add, that throughout the country, planting
was thrown backward by the late Spring,
and should an early frost ensue great injury
may be done; planters have also mnd to
eontend against a season of extreme
drought, folloved by heavy rains which
aus lhave been injurious to their crops.*
Before ,losiug this article we would call
a'tention to the appended extract from the
New Orleans Pices Current, its remarks
may not be applicable to our planters here,
but is nevertheless worth noting.

whlich somae parties are dishonest enough
to re'sort to; with evident view to defraud.
In thtese cases the discovery of the defraud

the faictors have sent back upon them cer

statp of: the country 'in regar d to the
hog and cattle market
In the dounty .of ayet 1e
first county of the State inagriculture,
I caused the Commissioner of'Tax to
take the census of hogs more fully than.
the law required. Tihe'result is,: listed
in 1852, 13180 hots over-six nioithis
old;. this year, 20,363; all, six.niontlis
over and, under, 39,303-nearly all of
wiiich latter number may be brought
into market At home or abroad.
The report of the Louisville Courier
will give you an idea of the number of.
hogs over six months old, and the
abov'e data a proximate estimate of the
whole ntun'her, All of which shows an
amount of hogs Inprieedented ii our
State. Similar causes, no doubt, have
produced like results 'iA all the
rihe two months' drought prevailing
all over the State caused the purchas
ers of hogs, for future d-eli%:erV, to
have some apprehension of high prices;
but the late rains have been very
find, ard corn will be an average crop
all through this section, and as far as
I can hear throughout the State, except
upon the poorest soils. I shoufld say
that all hogs suitable for fatteni4g will
be made fat.- Stock hogs are three
dollars per hundred, gross and freely
offered. Fat hogs refused at same price.
The amoint of old corn is consider
able, at $1,50 per barrel in the crib.
New corn is selling at *1.25- per bar
rel in the field.
Cattle comnig M'' to winter and
rWl beef are' more* si're- than I e'
er knew them. I am now grazing
700 cattle-only ohe hundi-ed ofthem
will be fit for killing this fall, whereas
usually one-half would have been
good beef. I found it utterly impos
sible in Kentucky torget aged cattle for
grazing fat. Beef is six cents per
pound here now, and must advance with
the fall demand.
The California trade has talen off
most of the extreme Western cattle,
and oxen have been bought in this
country for that mifrket. Tennessee
has even been hunted over fhr old oxen
to feed for the New York market by
Kentuckeians and Ohioans.
Hoas.-The hog market in touis.
ville, Cincinnati, and Madison. fidiata,
is reported quiet. The following are
extracts- from letters from 'diflerent
sections of-the western country,- from
which it ivill be seen that the price of
hog: is very unsettled. -A writer to
the Louisville Journal, from Lexing
ton, Ky., on the 20th August, says "As
for corn you may feel assured that
there was a better prospect far -a
fine crop, and prico's are iver3-dny-eel.
ing the effect of it.-Farmers -who
asked $1 75nd *2 per barrel (5 bush
els] in the field a tnonth since are now
willing. if not anxious to sell at *1
25 and do' not fine buyers at that
price. Hogs -are abundant also, and
prices are getting near the reach of
reasonable men. Three dollars per
100 pounds gross is now the asking
rate' in this and the surrounding cnn
ties, though but few buyers are willing
to take hold at that price. The unusual
iy large number of hogs in the coun..
try, joined to, the factgof the' corn
cropJ beimg so line, makes people rath
er seary about specbittions ini them,
and we may expect operators this
year to beo more prudent than they
The following are extracts from
letters to the Citncinnati Praice Cur
rent: From Milton, Wayne county, In
diana: "The number of Hogs in this
vicinity about the same a~s last seas

below. Feeders are calculatinig on a
consid erale reduction in price, though
there have been no contracts made yet
that I have heard of."
From Dublin. Indiana: "It is be

was last year. Price of Stock Hlogs
3 ents per lb.; hear- of no price
for- fat Hogs, but it is the judgment of
huyers that, *3,00 to 3,25 will be about
the price per 100 lbs. net."
F'rom Gr-eenwood, Indiana: "The
number of Hogs in this section of
country is at least equal to that of
last year-. Stock H~ogs have sold fr om
*2,75 to $3,00 gross, but there is some
hesitancy in taking hold, in conse
quencee of the anticipated failure of the
corn crop, this cr-op haviing suficred
severely fom drought."
From Freedom, Owen county, Tn
diamia: "Trho present stock of Hogs is
full 10 per- cent.; larger than that of
last. The gener-al opinion is -that
Ilugs will be low.. Stock Hogs have
been selling at *3,00 gross, but are
dull at that, and buyers arec hold
From Clinton, Indiana: "It is the
general impression here, of both
feeders and buyers, that the number oh
Hogs is about the same .as. last
year, and that the price wvill range fromi
3 to 4 cents, according to the final re
