Steplien I. Pool,
As 'orth Carolina has become
to some extent identified with the
history of volcanoes, it may not be
altogether devoid of interest to com
pile a few facts in regard to these
terrible terrestial phenomena.
The number of active volcanoes
in the world, that is of those that
have wiven evidences of having betn
in a state of eruption within a com-
parativeh short geologicil period,
is shout two hundred and seventy.
Of this number more than three
fourths occupy the islands or the
shores of the Facific Ocean. The
Atlantic Ocean and Europe togeth
er number about thirty-seven volca
noes, while there is not one on the
entire continent of Africa. There
are ten upon the west coast of
Xorth America, the most active in
the United States being Mt. St.
Helen?, on the Columbia river, in
Oregon. With very few exceptions,
the active volcanoes of the world
are found either in islands, or, if on
continents, in situations compara
tively nar the sea-shore. The
position of Bald Mountain is there
fore not unfavorable for a valcano.
The loftiest volcano in the world is
Aconcaqua (one of the Chilian
Andes) which rises to a height of
Eruptions are generally proceded
by loud subterranean noises, and
frequently by slight shocks of
earthquakes. Fountains and springs
dry up, and the air, pervaded by
an unnatural stillness, seems close
and oppressive. The sounds are
described as being sometimes of the
most awful description, and the
noise, according to soma, writers,
resembles discharges of heavy ar-
tillpry, ami awful rnaringS.
Cne of the most remarkable in
stances of volcanic eruptions occur
red in the island of Sumbawa in the
year 1815. It commenced on the
fth of April, and did not entirely
cease until July. Its influence (i. e.
shocks, and the noise of the explo
sions) was perceptible over an area
1,800 miles in diameter, while with
in the range of its more immediate j
vicinity, embracing a space of 400
miles, its effects were most terrific.
In Java, 300 miles distant, it seem
ed to be awfully present. The sky
was overcast at noon-dav with
clouds of ashes, which the light of
the sun was unable to penetrate,
and fields, streets, and houses were
covered with ahes to the depth of
several inches. At Sumbawa itself,
immense columns of flame appeared
to burst forth from the top of the
volcano, Tombora, and in a short
time the whole mountain appeared
like a mass of liquid fire, which
gradually extended in every direc
tion. As the eruption continued, a
darkness supervened, so profound
as to obscure even the light of the
flames ; showers of stone3 and ashes
fell continuously over the whole
island ; the sea rose twelve feet
higher than it had ever been known
to do b. fore ; and finally a whirl
wind ensued, which tore up the
largest trees, and carried them into
the air, together with men horses,
cattle, and whatever else came
within its influence. Of 12,000
inhabitants in the vicinity only six
are believed to have escaped, and
of some entire villages not even a
vestige remained. Numerous other
instances can be mentioned where
the terrific effects of volcanoes have
been felt over hundreds of miles
With such facts as these before
u-j we could scarcely contemplate a
probable eruption at a distance of
.p.ly two hundred miles with per
l'.ct complacency. If there should
be a volcano at Bald Mountain the
effects would to a greater or less
degree be sensible at this distance,
But who believes " Old Baldy " is
doing anything more than growl-
THE FLOODS AND THE COTTON
It becomes a question of practi
cal import to cotton-growers what
effect the terrible floods in the
South and Southwest will have
upon the price of the coming cotton
crop. A large portion of country,
includin? nerhans the most fertile
parts of Mississippi, Louisiana,
Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas and
Texas, has been suffering overflows
and raius almost unprecedented.
The Mississippi river and other
lesser streams have broken through
all bariers and spread destruction
Over hundreds of miles of the finest
cotton-growing section of the Uni
ted States. The disaster too has
come at a very inopportune time.
It has rendered worthless the great
amount of labor expended in pre
paration for the crop, which, if it
has no other effect, must delay the
nlantin? to a most unseasonable
The practical question for us is,
what effect will this produce upon
the cotton crop ot 1874 ?
It is impossible to argue the
extent of the future crops with any
absolute certainty , an account of
numberless eontcngencies which en
ter as active ingredients, any one
of which might materially effect the
result and the happening or not
happening of which no one can pre
dict, but it does seem evident, from
two simple facts known to the pub
lic, that the cotton crop of 18T4
cannot be a large one. In the first
place, the low prices of last year
left the farmers in such a crippled
condition that they were materially
unable to expend t'e moans upon
this crop necessary to produce a
large one. In the second place,
the floods have not only greatly in
creased the expense of the present
crop but will also render it so late
as to effect the quantity of produc
tion. We think therefore our farmers
may s.ifcly calculate upon a dimin-.
ish crop and a proportional advance
in price this fall. But while this
should encourage their energies, it
should not render them too sanguine,
nor so zealous in the production of
cotton a3 to neglect the staple sup
plies of the farm. They may work
with a hope of good remuneration,
but should never forget there is no
safety for a farmer who has to spend
his income for such things as he
could eas'ly produce himself.

the Times as to any material
fact, both being doubtless
equally honest and earnest as to
the end to be attained, i. e. the
promotion ot the interest of rhe
Democratic party, but we differ as
to the be-t means of reaching
this end. The point taken in
our first article on thi3 sub
ject was, that opposition, that
H soim r.artv opposition, could
effect no good for us while it would
infuse activity in and arouse all the
energy of the Radical party; grant
ing that we would also suffer to
some extent from inactivity but not
in a decree commensurate with the
injury that would finally work in
the ranks of our enemies. We see
no argument advanced bv the
Times to cause us to change our
opinion, its position, that the
radical party would all vote wheth
er it had opposition or not, is to a
certain extent true : They would
certainly continue with their pre
sent compactness, which we have
to a considerable degree produced,
for perhaps two or three years, but
in our opinion would finally become
so weakened by want of opposition
and so tofn by internal dissentions
that it would disintegrate entirely.
We confess, however, that it is a
simple matter of expediency, upon
which much may be said pro and
con, and hence we will cheerfully
abide by any action our party may
think best to persue.
