J7The propriety of calling a county meet
ing at an early Jay to settle upon men to ffll
Legislative and county on tee.-, has been sug
gested to us by several of our most prominent
county men, anj also to appoint delegates
tu the Stale convention, and to settle ns far as
the wish of the people of this county is con
cemtdt the Umt of holding said convention.
The move meets with our hearty approba
tion. This matter should come up at as ear
ly a day as convenient. Will some of our
friends si.e s a hint as to the time most pro
per and the place of convening such a meet
ing. We have no llmi or place to suggest,
lid the old men of the party send In their
suggestions and they may rest assured, wc
shall adhere to whatever they think advisable
for the advancement of a strict and thorough
party organization.

Gentlemen: There has little improvement
in business operations here within the past
few days. The last news from Europe gave
a very considerable impulse to our cotton
market. 'I he price advanced
1-S io 1-4 on all classes of cotton, and the de
mand much improved. It seems to be the
general impression here, that the article of
cotton, has now reached the highest maxi
mum point. Shippers think that the increas
ed amount of production the past year, and
the lale season at which the river's opened
has had a very considerable tendency io sus
tain prices thus far. As the rivers are now
all in navigable condition, with a fair pros
pect oi nieir continuing so for some weeks,
ii .ippicneiiucu ;nai ine receipt of supplies
will materially lessen the demand, if not the

UTThe Debt or Pennsylvania. It seems
doubtful, notwithstanding the strong nrray of esti
mates, and the poitive assertions of Gov. jPorU'r's
message, whether tlm State of Pensylvania will lit
enabled to meet the approaching instalment of in
rerest on its debt. Tho Pennsylvania" states tnt
ilnirn is now outinndin nnd dup, a million nnd n
half of relief issues and domestic creditor scrip.
The nnnual inter ?st duo amounts tn a million nnd u
half. The revenno of tho public works will be about
half a million. The balance of tho amount to meet
the scrip and relief insues and the intercut, must bo
met from tho State tax. The revenues from other
sources than the income from the public work nnd
the tax, will all be required to pay tho current ex
penses ofthe State

Nation Laws, but stops far short of the 21 yenrs
