Last Th1rsday we hatl another north
castern wind anid rain, which was very
cold, and a the felt comfortable all day.
Bush River only lacked two feet of
being as high as at the last big freshet.
The corn that was not destroyed in the
first flood wits washied down again and
covered over with sant. ''his rain has
settled the corn crops on low lands for
this year. It will be a great loss in this
comunty. Less corn will be matlo in the
county than any year since 11365. A
great many farmers were diepetilent al
together on their lo#iland for corn, antd
some have not one acre of high land
corn planted this year. 1 have heard
several say that they would not make
as much as ten bushels, and( others say
they would not uake enough to (10 them
until Christmas. Red land corn is boom
ing, and as good as the land will lnake.
If the rains continue two weeks longer
the cotton crop will be a failure, and it
will have to be very favorable from now
on for an average crop to be made.
It is impossible for the cotton that
was planted last spring in this county
to make an average crop, from the fact
that thie grass has possession of about
one-fourth of the crop, which w%"ill be 1m.
possible for the farmers to get cleared
in tine to make enough to pay for the
trouble and time. I have seen acres of
cotten, that if the rails continue one
week longer, it will La impossible for a
one-horse plow to turn the grass under
that is growing so luxuriantly in the
middie of the rows. The farmer, with
out a doubt, leserves praise for t he way
in which he has managed1 to keep the
grass from getting possessiol of his crop.
I heard of one of our neighbors, who
rode over one of hi plantations and1 got
lost, andl offered a coloredt ienalt. 25 cents
to show him the way omit of the grass.
Mrs. Glasgow hadt a corn crib blown
down in the north-eastern gale of last
Thursday, anld one line hog an<l a goat
killed tinder tihe debris.
General Suber's (colored) wife was
found lead in bed last ThIursday morn
ing. She went to bed as usual 'Wlnes
(lay night, apparently in good health.
11er husband said he did not know what
time in the night she lied. She was
subject to heart disease.
The wells in our vicinity are nearly
full of water, ani the water in some can
scarcely be usetl. I expect. that is one
cause of so much (lysentery throughout
the colmilln ity.
