[X. O. Democrat.] Wo have received a pony of MesRjtB: Latham, 'Alexander & Co.'s estimate of the cott on crop of 1881 '82. In order to obtain some idea of the probable crop, this firm wrote to 1,190 leading men, cotton planters, bankers and others, in quiring as to the condition of the figîïe" outfcrJp of bales against Bradstreet's estimate of 4,516,725 bales. The cverage of these estimate!? is 4,650,130'bales. iswÄfö'srtsss: pondents were asked to give an estimate of the shortage of the crops in their own States and , another estimate of the entire yield V the country, it is singular to seethe difference between these, two sets of answers livitii-ily the same correspondents. Every one seems to think that the yield in his own neighborhood will prove small, yet the crop for the whole country will he reduced but little. Taking the first set of answers, the crop would be. as we have already said, 4,709,3fi7f>ale8, whereas, taking the second set, the average estimate of 1,634 correspondents is 5,454, 647 baies; The highest estimates coiue from Iyouisiana, the lowest trbn) Arkansas, ranging from 3,750,060 to 6,506,000 hales.
