"We received no Augusta papers
We have received no papers west
of Augusta for nearly two weeks.
This is inexplicable to us, as we per
ceive the New OrIcans papers are re

Yes, there is indeed a screw lo6sc
somcwhere on this line. We know
from personal knowledge, of letters
being mailed in Georgia over a week
ago and directed to persons in this
place, which have not reached us yet.
Now, we would be inuch disposed to
make allowances for our atlicted
brethren in Augusta if the failure
originated with thein, but does it?
Ve opine not. There is a regular
distributing ofice attached to each
mail car and it is the distributing ofli
cer's duty to see that the mail is for.
warded to the prope- places and at the
proper time. If this is not done it
ought to be looked after by tho proper
authoI ity. Whilo speaking of the
Western Mailwe would remark that
nuel tiic and inconvenience to the
public might be saved, if there was
not such an unnecessary delay and
loss of time !i!Au.gsta Why c. h n
not the nail lie forwarded irnimedi
ately ? And why detain passengers
at Augusta, as we nre informed they
are, from two to four hours ? The'se
are great inconveniences to say the
least to the country at large, and
ought to be remnedied. If it is a
mere pretext by which to benefit the
people of Augusta it is an outrage
that ought to be put a stop to at once,
and we hope the l'ost Master Gene

"The New York Herald sometime
since bent circulars throughout the
country iii brder to obtain rom relia.
ble sources statements of' the condition
of the crops in the dif'erent States of
the Union. The result has been that
the prospect of a plentil'ul year is fir
more ifvornble than has been generally
supposed. Indeed, we have long since
ceased to place much confidence in the
reports which are circulated almost
every year of a fifilurc iii the crop-.
The interest of the producer is calcu
lated to induce him to -misrepresent
the facts in order that ta.e price of his
produce may be thereby proportion
ately increased. And even if there be
an honest intention to represent the
truth fairly, there is a tendency on the
part ofevery agriculturist to depieciate
his crops whenever he has beui par.
The llerald announces that the
wheat, crop in Upper Ciada has been
unprecedented, and that the supplies
for exportation to the United States
will be unusually large. Fron many
sources too, we learn that the grailn
crop in England has been immense.
Large tracts of country have yielded
an average of thirty bush. Is to the
acre, and in some cases the enormous
yield of sixty bushels has been real
The above, which we copy flrom the
Carolinian, must be gratifying to our
ccuntry, at large, and we do not mean,
by wihIt, we are about to say, to (e
tect from the merit of the article, yet
we would not have our people lulled
into fancied ease and security or
our favored community cozened out
of their advantages by statements
which though true in the main, yet do
not apply strictly and directly to us.
The large crops made in England and
at the Aorth (if true) must lesson the
demand for grain in those countries
%'hich have hitherto done a larger ex
porting business and must too to some
extent eflfect the price of fbod all over
our country ; but it cannot effect us
much. The crops throughout Ten.
nessee and Kentct-ky and the greater
portion of Georgia and North Carolina
-our neighbors and the great grain
markets of our Southern country
have almost been a total fiilure. We
speak knowingly, for we have recently
passed through these States with the
exception of Kentucky, and our inqui.
ries c->neerning the crops in that State
were particular and made to those who
had the best opp ortunities of knoring,
and the unanimous testimony was
that there had not been more than a
half crop made. In fact so little corn
has been made throughout Tennessee
and in portions of Kentniioky tilt ;n
some places- it could not tie haI at any
price. And as an evidence too of its
scarcity we noticed that the majority of
the Ihrmers were not fatning their
hogs-the great staple. of these coun
tries-for market. ; but on the contrary
a general willingness was manifest, to
dispose of their steck at from 2 to 2 1 2
cents per pound. These evidences are
not to be mistaken. Whatever then
may be the truth ot these newspaper
reports as to the large crops in Eng.
land auid at fthe North it can but be
wise in us to hold on to our grain and
pork until we are better satislied that
they are not to reach a higher price
than for years past. Sumitter Distriet
has to a great extent been blessed
with a bonntifulh grain crop and now
that an oppiortulnity of reaping a rich
reward is held out ahead it would be
lfoll y in our people to rush into the
market and destroy their chances when
so many evidces of coming scarcity
are all aroundl theim.
