Tho secretary stated that he had no new loans to otter and no measures to pro pose, lie expressed tho belief that with the aid of shipments of coin from Europe which are looked for during the year, the nrld pre mium would gradually diappear betore tne time when the treasury would be able to re deem legal-tender notes, and perhaps before congress assembles in December. Sherman said the coin in the treasury was amply suf ficient for the purposes ot resumption, ana that he would make no further sales of bonds on this account. The members of the syndi cate expressed themselves as being in ac cord with these views, ana pieagea themselves to assist him in car rying out the resumption act. Later on in the day Secretary Sherman had a conference with prominent bank offi cials, and the conversation was similar to the above.

Wtber, Who, though Subjected to a Rigid Cross-Examination by Cox, Sticks to his First Statement. Washington, July 11. The rotter in vestigation committee resumed to-day, and Senator Kellogg was examined by tenerftl Butler. He testified that theetectfon in Louis iana in 16 was entirely legal ; a great many people in New Orleans thought x the returning-board had acted improperly in refusing to retnrn as letted certain persons who they Vl 2i5d ought to have been elected. At the request of General Butler, witness gae a 'de tailed statement to ttie composition of the restjpetfre houses of the legislature, and a"tr reciting the law of Louisiana at a con siderable length, ha stated that .Governor Packard was legally -inaugurated on the eighth of anuiry, 1617, at which time there ws a tlepublicau quorum in both houses. General Butler produced some tables com puted from the returning-board Hgufe&i which showed that after the bcrttd harl tb.rtjfrtt out a sufficient numbeV of Democratic parishes to eleet general 'assembly, that it was found there were still two Hayes electors defeated, whereupon the returning-board threw out parishes and precincts u"til they had sue ceeded in securing a majority of Hayes elec tors. Witness stated J Assuming the figures in be the correct finding s of the returning boardi it left the general assembly Republi Ua in both branches, and still It ft two Hayes electors in the minority By General Butler W hereupon the board proceeded to give the screw another turn? Witness That is not my testimony. Qaes. How much on the returns, as re turned by the returning-board, did the lowest Hayes elector run behind Packard? Ans. These tables show a majority for governor of four hundred and one, while two Republican electors, Levissee and Joseph, were in a mi nority. After recess the examination of the witness was continued. He said: The Tilden electors had a majority, I believe, on the face of the return of the votes as cast in the different parishes originally, and so did Nicholls. By Mr. Butler Did you telegraph to Flor ida any statement as to how the State had gone at any time before the sixth of Decem ber? Ans. I telegraphed two or three times, perhaps, that it had gone favorably. Ques. From what source did you obtain information? Ans. From my knowledge of the result of the election as indicated by the returns from the different parishes and the notorious fact that in certain parishes there ... .ii-i- j was a degree ot terrorism mat t oeuevea would show the absence of a fair election and justify the returning-board in throwing out tne vote; my opinion was in reiauuu vj tuo general result only; I telegraphed to friends ic Florida to that effect and also to Chandler, of the National Republican committee; 1 happened recently to come upon one of my telegrams to Chandler, dated the seventh of November, in which I predicted my belief that we had really carried the State, judging from the returns as thev came in from the close parishes and from parishes where they had betore been democratic ana wnere we were then polling a larger vote than since reconstruction. The witness produced the telegram referred to, addressed to Zch Chandler and dated November 6th, which states that terrorism existed in certain parishes, and that colored people were prevented from voting on ac count of intimidation, etc. The Witness That was the kind of a dis patch that I sent; Chandler asked me if I believed we bad carried the btale, and 1 sam I did, and sent him this dispatch. The re- turning-board, in ull cases where the parish was not disputed, would announce so many votes for the Hayes electors and so many votes for the Tilden electors, but where there were charges of irregularities these parishes would be set aside tor lurtner action. ine parishes that were laid aside were seventeen in number, where there was more or less in timidation claimed, to the best of my knowl edge and belief ; I think the returns from the unquestioned parishes would give a majority to the Republican ticket throughout. In sev enteen of the parishes where there was more or less intimidation, in five of which, namely East and West Feliciana, Ouachita, Moore- house and East Baton Rouge, where the Re publicans were thoroughly terrorized, the col ored registration was 27,269, and the white registration 20,260, giving a colored majority of the registered voters of 6949. The vote in these seventeen parishes as cast on tne iace of the returns, of which there was no dispute about, was 10,970 Republican only, and 21, 123 Democrats. That is, these seventeen par ishes with a colored majority of nearly 7000, gave a Democratic majority ot 10,lod. lhat is the basis of intimidation. In the forty parishes where we all agreed there was no in timidation and the election was fair and peaceable, the colored registration in 1876, which was about the same as during the pre vious years was 87,999, and the white regis tration 72,034, shewing a colored majority of 15,96a. These forty parishes returned the following vote: Republican, 85,000; Demo cratic, 59,302; giving a Republican majority of 6000 and upward. These are undoubted statistics, compiled by me from official pa pers. Qaes. How did you ascertain in the regis tration whether a man was a Republican or a Democrat? Ans. We ascertained it only from the tact that the different officers kept a tally of the colored peeple registering and the white people registering, and we as sumed that the colored people voted ths Re publican ticket and the white people tho Democratic ticket, and the result showed the fact in all these forty parishes, not only in 1876, but for the previous two years. Ques. You assumed by the same reason ing that all men who voted the Democratic ticket were white and all men who voted the Republican ticket were black? Ans. Not exactly that; but we calculated from that basis with this modification, that we got as many white voters to vote the Republican ticket as thev irot colored men to vote the Democratic ticket: we judged the present by the past, because we bad tested it in quite & number of elections; East and West Feli ciana parishes were the most thoroughly Ke Dublicun parishes in the State; the registra tion of 1876 in West Feliciana shows about three hundred and ninety-nine white voters and two thousand two hundred and thirteen colored voters. You must bear in mind that there was a new registration made in 1874 and another in 1876, which was the registra tion of 1874 corrected and amended: the reg istration of 1876 in East and West Feliciana was substantially the same as that of 1874, with the proper corrections made. Oaes. The duty of the supervisor of elec tion was to correct the list, then, of 1874? Ans. Yes, sir. Ojes. Therefore there were about the same number r-jected in East Feliciana par ish, whether Anderson did or did not go there and act as supervisor t Ans 1 es, sir; about the same. U les. What then had intimidation to do wit ii altering the registration in 1S76? Ans I do tot thick it bad so much to do with altering the registration; it had probably had not much to do with that except that the new colored men would not come forward and reg ister; the bulldozers never affected regiatra lion. The witness next referred to the inau guration of the Nicboll's government and re' t erred at length to the events connected with the seizing by force of the court building, tee breaking up of the court, and the subsequent appointment of judgf-s by Governor NicholU as ine:r successors. (Jjes. Do you know of any ground of le gal right, or form of law, or constitutional provision by which Nicholls and his people were anything except an organized mob? Aaiwlkaow of no reason why Packard and his government was not the legal State gov ernment of Louisiana, and the Packard leg islature the legal legislature of liie State; and the supreme court the legal and undoubted supreme court of the State of Louisiana. Ques. Do you not know that after the M' Yeigh committee had disposed of the Pack ard legislature, Governor Packard threatened to appeal to the supreme court ? Ans. "i es, sir; he would have submitted his claim if he could, but Nicholls thrust it out. : tues. After Packard had threatened to appeal to the supreme court to determine the legality of his election, did not President Hayes destroy the quorum of that court by appointing King collector? Ans. The fact of his appointing him collector and his taking the oath of office did destroy the court, on the ground that the taking of one officer is the Virtual and lepftl surrender of the others: Ques. Then what Nicholls did by tOrce, President Hayes confirmed by appointing him collector. Was this the same King who, after he had been in office a little while, had his name withdrawn and whose nomination was not acted upon by the senate? Ans. Heis the same mc.H. VueS. After the object of the appointment had been accomplished then the nomination was withdrawn; where is he now? Ans. He is in St. Landry parish; he has retired from public life; I don't think the Republi cans wanted him as colleP,torv Uoes.Then against the wishes of the Re publicans of Louisiana this man, b'ein?? one of the legal supreme judges required to make a legal auorum, was appointed to this office? Ans. Yes, sir. Ques. And Mr. p, H. Morgan, who was one of the .ludjres who He'd orer; wa3 ap pointed by the President to be judge ot any international court in Africa'; was he not translated into that posit job? Ansl I be lieve he was atmointed to such a position. 'iues. And just about that time, was it not? Ans. It was about May of last year, I think. Ques. Then, when Morgan and King had been appointed, Packard had not rnuc chance, with, the Nicholls fudges, had hei Ans. I don't think he had. Qties. I want to ask you, in all solemnity, this: Do you believe, from your knowledge of what took place, that there was any other reason for appointing King collector than to get him out. of eonrt) bo that Packard Would not haVe his' rights tried by a legal court? Mr. Hi8cock commenced to make objection to the question, when the witnessed answered that he could hot Say as to the matter refer red to, whereupon Mr. Hiscock withdrew his objection to the auestion. Mr. Butler The objection being with drawn, I will now ask you if you do not be lieve that to be the tact state whetner you believe it or not? Mr. Hiscock I object to that question j I think it hardly Competent fbt ahyone to swear as i- what influenced the President in making such an appointment, or what operated upon the mind of Governor Nichols in his action in the matter. By Mr. Butler 1 will ask you, then, if you know on whose recommendation King was appointed? Ans. I think he was appointed on the recommendation of Thomas (J. Ander son, and I recommended him also. .That the President did or did not appoint King with reference to his connection with this court I cannot, of Course, say. but I know that Mr. King Was an tld resident, and, above all he was an Old-Line Whig. Laughter. Ques. Did Boulds Baker recommend him ? Laughter Ans. I should not be surprised if such was the case. He had been a mem ber of the legislature for a number of years, and I recommended him on the ground of his being an old resident and an Old-Line Whig. Ques. Do you know who recommended Judge Morgan to the position he obtained ? Ans. I think he was appointed by Mr. Evarts upon his own application. Ques. Was not the question mooted about Governor Packard's appealing to the supreme court before the court was broken up? Ans. I think the matter had been discussed by himself and friends before that. Ques. Do vou remember whetoer Mr. King's name was withdrawn about the Jime that Boulds Baker returned from lexas--1 Laughter. Ans. I do nit think his name was ever sent in; there was an extra session of the senate afterward, and Lawrence's name was sent in for collector; it was said that King declined at the last moment in or der to relieve the President of all embarrass ment, and not, I think, until it was under stood he would not be reappointed. Adjourned until triday. The Kew Orleans Division. New Orleans, July 11. Before the Pot ter sub-committee to-day, HIRAM SMEDLET testified. Being shown by Mr. Cox the An derson-Weber agreement, be said: 1 saw the name of D. A. Weber signed to that p:i- ner bv J. W. Jones, a notary public, in the back room of my coffee-house, on Exchange alley; Jones spent most of his time at my place; only saw Jones sign Weber's name once; don't know whether the paper was a single or double sheet; about two months ago, before Dix went to Washington, I had a conversation with him; he said they wanted him to swear that he had seen Weber sign the Anderson-Weber agreement, but he could not. . . Ques. Bv Mr. Blackburn: Jones had the reputation of signing other people's names and fixinsr up crooked papers? Ans. "To the best of my knowledge and belief, wnen Ln and Wilder cert.fv that Weber's name was signed to the Anderson-Weber agreement at the date given they cirtity to aiaiseuooa; l told Seymour a few days ago that he knew his certificate was untrue. E B. WEBER was examined by Mr. Cox as to his testimony given in Jackson, Mississippi, before the Boutweli committee. Mr. Cox read from the report of that committee the questions pro pounded and the answers given by Weber at that time, and asked witness whether they were true or false as to each question which relate to violence, intimidation, threat", mur der, and all manner of outrage, as charged at that time, including the acts of the regu lators. The answers given by witness were simi lar in almost every case, only slightly varied by circumstances. Witness said his testi mony was given then in most cases from in formation received, and proceeded to explain the circumstances under which he testified at the instance of Governor Kellogg, and said that many of his statements were made for political effect; that he knew at the time they were not true; some of tho statements he believed at that time were tr.ie, but he knew now they were false. Witness explained bis misunderstanding of the objects of the regulators, which he knows now were to break up stealing, raids on seed-cotton after night, etc.; witness said the statements then made were not willfully false, but from hearsay and imagination; his intention was to tell the truth, and think" in most instances he did tell the committee the truth as understood by him at that time, but he knows now that those statements were false; he was never warned away from the parish, and had no information that would justify him in making such statements. In answer to a question by Mr. Cjx as to the Sherman letter, witness said he found it in a box sent from his brother's at Bayou Sara to his father-in-law's warehouse in Donaldsonville; found the letter after Mrs. Jenks's visit; showed it to no one; tore it up at once, because it exposed my broth er's . wrong doings; my brother told me there were no grounds for protesting the parish. Witness admitted that he had been indicted, forfeited his bond, and afterward, at the suggestion of the district-attorney, made a falsa affidavit in order to have the bond restored. Weber was on the stand three hours. Under Mr. Cox's cross-examination he several times becitnie very much excited, and accused UTr. Cox of brow-beating him and appealed to the committee for protection. Kaae-Itall Scores). Cleveland Forrest City. 7; Hornells, 21. Marine Chronicle. New York, July 11.

LoNbow, July l!.-The epcitemprtt in re gard to the Anglo-Turkish alliance nas noi. subsided, and there is much agitation among the political parties at present. Only a vory srilsUl majority cf the opposition . favor di rectly challenging the government .policy. Lord Hartington; the liberal leader, will to day, in the hoiise of commons, call for papers rind information on the suhiect of the Anglo Turkish convention, and when these are pro duced the opposition will decide what course to take. The conservative press continue warmly to support the government's meas ure, and the l'imt8 argues that the cost un dertaker! cSflla i'oft hie been practically avoided, and wonld have been inevitable, sooner or later. Some of the liberal press, however, claim that there is more acute anx iety among the conservatives than can be es timated by reading conservative newspapers. A London correspondent of the Manchester IHtardian says : A SHORT LIFE IS PREDICTED FOR THE ALL! By some it is pointed out that Lord flea coasfield'8 arrangement robs the pashas of their right to plunder the populations they misgovern. The Bureaucratic class will vote against the foreign protectorate, which for bids peculation and punishes for misgovern ment, and they Will soon intrigue for the es tablishment of a Russian protectorate. If Russia is so inclined the British protectorate can be terminated at any time by a memorial. The sun ender of these Russian acquisitions in Asia, which were a specific condition for England's interference for these difficulties, the present convention between Turkey and England PROVIDES NO REMEDY. A Berlin dispatch , sajs the hews from Italy, and especially from France, seeiiis to indicate that public opinion in regard to the Cyprus treaty is seriously affect-ng the pri vate interests of these nations. On this sub ject, one of the plenipotentiaries of Great Britain said: "If France and Austria, at the end of the war, had declared themselves ready to act together for the maintenance of the integrity of Turfeey, England would have joined them. Unfortunately, they could not. or would not. Then England, from consid erations of superior interest, was obliged to guarantee the Porte's Asiatic possessions.

It decided, therefore, upon occupying Cyprus. France, on considering the absolute necessity imposed on England, will soon see that the occupation of Cyprus was only suggested to Eoeland bv her ardent desire to reconcile her absolute interests with the sympathies of i ranee.

Berlin, ; July 11. Emperor William's physicians have issued another long state ment in regard to his condition. 1 hey as cribe his majesty's relatively slow progress toward recovery to the great loss of blood and aDDetite : to the shock to his system, and to mental depression. His attainable degree of strength is not regained, and his power of locomotion is 6mall. Mis bands are helpless, and he can only eat with assistance. His physicians, however, are confident of his re covery by the influence of time and exercise. THE READING OF THE TREATY COMPLETED. Berlin. July 11.

The mayor has given his ultimatum to the effect that he will carry out his proclamation and prevent the procession front taking place. For this purpose he will swear in five hundred special constables. He has marched a large body of police to O ran ere hall, on at James street. where they are stitioned in front of the building, with a force of detectives inside searching for arms. A vast crowd collected. Observing the situation, the Irish Catholics assembled in Union hall to consider what action they will take. The attendance is immense, and the excitement intense Three of the magistrates who signed the requisition to call out the military had an in terview with General Smyth, to learn his views as to the course he. will adopt, in pros pect of a conflict of action between the mayor and magistrates. He said his first desire was to preserve the peace; he would take his or ders. however, from the magistrates. Mat1 ters are now in a more complicated condition than ever, and no one can tell what may oc cur at any moment. The streets are filled with ueoDle. and the greatest excitement pre vails.

Socialist Scare in Germany. The Socialist scare continues in Germany. A young man traveling for a Silesian paper house happened to be talking to a customer in Berlin, when the customer's wife said, "My, how much you resemble Noblingl You might be taken for him." "Is that so?'' said the young man, j'fctingly; "then I must re semble a very handsome man. Next day was arrested aiid locked un- M. L. Kigon- dand, Berlin correspondent of the Paris Soleil, was arrested tor "looking wicaeoiy at tne Column of Victory." He was immediately released, of course, but the incident is signifi cant. There is a sadder case that ot iierr Loewenstein, a furniture dealer, who com mitted suicide in prison, having been unable to brook the disgrace of being led manacled through the streets. He denied emphatically having used the seditious expressions attrib uted to him, and it came out atterwara tnat he was innocent and had been denounced by a personal enemy. Altogether, things in the ficrman canital remind us of the witty Paris ian pageant (described, we thiik, by Lord Albemarle) where, in the scene representing the reisrn of terror, the dancers, crying, "Til tn'es 8usvect!" marched each other off till only one was left, who seized himself by the throat and, shouting, "Je me suis suspect!" denounced himself and danced himself off to prison. Indeed, the only sensible man in the German empire seems to be a Bavarian tav- ern-keeDer who. when an inebriate guest be gan babbling bloodthirstily and beerily that "it served, the kaiser right, took mm oy the collar and launched him into the street with three tremendous kicks, administered "in the name of the emperor, of the king of Bavaria and of the German people." A Lucky Field Day. Sherman (Texas) Register: A farmer named John Daniels, a resident of the mid dle portion of Hunt county, called on us this mornintr. and v.'ith his face wreathed in pleasant smiles, related an account of a lucky haul he made from mother earth last fourth of Julv. He Baid he let his wife take the old gray mare and wagon to take the children to a fourth of July frolic in a neighboring grove, while he remained at home to celebrate the day by grubbing an old knarly stump out of his field. While working away at one of the roots, about u foot and a halt below the sur face, his nick struck something? hard, which on further investigation Droved to be an old iron pot, over the month of which a piece of well-tanned buffalo hide was stretched and tied down with a rjiece of rawhide in a per fect state of preservation. He took out his pocket-knife, npped open the cover, and to his great astonishment his eyes met a snug little pile of silver money. On removing the silver, which consisted of Mexican and Amer ican half dollars and quarters, and about double-handful of dimes and five cent pieces, in all four hundred and twenty-six dollars, he came nrxin a bonanza of fifteen twenty dollar gold pieces. On top of the money was an old "silver goblet, severely dented from hard usage, evidently an old family relie. on one side of which was engraved : "To John Mvrick. From his mother." It seems that duriue the war a family named Myrick did live in that neighborhood; but what became of them, or what was the cause of their sudden departure, no one can lruag ine, and probably no one will ever know. A Father Kills Ills Son. Okolona Messenger: One of the most hideous crimes it has ever been our lot to re cord was nernetrated last week in the north western rjortion of Pontotoc county. The circumstances, as stated to us by a gentleman living in Pontotoc, are as follows: A man named Albert Hardy, residing in the portion of the countv above alluded to. and his son James, a young man near twenty years of aire, were nlowinz in the field. IhemJe which James was driving became unruly, and he ierked him and slaoned him with the lines. Trip father, who was at work some distance awav. cemmandei him to desist, which it seems the son did not do instantly. This so pnratred the old man that he left bis plow. Bpizpd a sincrle-tree. and running up to his arm. struck him a violent blow, from the ef fect of which death ensued in about three hours. After being stricken down by the in human parent, before his death, the youug man recovered sufficiently to say, rather, k, lrilln.t ins " The brute replied. with an oath. "That is what 1 intended to An " Annrher nainful fact connected with this most brutal murder is that the justice of the peace before whom tne preliminary tnai was had admitted the murderer to bad in the sum of three thousand dollars, which amount was deposited with the sureties (Albert Hardy is said to have plenty of money) and the mis erable telon is now a iugiuve irom juauias. THE CROPS. Unusually Full Returns from Every Part of Tennessee Give Assurance of a General Average, Taking One Thin? With Another From Georgia and Flor ida the same Good News is Heralded The Cotton Crop Promises a Fair Yield. Htate Crops and Statistical Reports for Jane, 1M7M. STATE BtSKiU OF AGKICCLTCRK. STATISTICS I amd Mines ahd Immigration, V Nasbvillk, Tenn., JuVj lo, 1878. ) I have unexceptionally full returns from sixty-three counties; twenty from East Ten nessee, twenty-eight from Middle Tennessee, and fifteen from West Tennessee. weather. The weather has been, in the main, highly propitious for growing crops. During the past month showers have been frequent, but in some localities there ere heavy and long continued rains, which have thrown the farmers batk in their work and caused con siderable iojury to the hay and wheat crops. In East Tennessee 18 counties report season able weather, and 2, Hamblen and Loudou, dry. In Middle Tennessee 24 seasonable and 4 wet, viz.: Franklin. Humphreys, Maury and Trousdale. In West 'fennewMje 9 sea sonable and 6 wet. WHEAT. Information fnorigb has been obtained to justify the conclaslCr! ttat previous estimates of this crop were not too ki Ja the report for May, the estimate was put at two-thirds of an ordinary Crop. Since the threshing has begun, even this may ap?ar too large, inas much as the average yield so far" Is about four aid a half bushels per acre. Assuming the acreage of wheat sown the past fall to have been 1.500.000 acfei Miss will give an aggre gate for the wheat crop of 6,750,000 bushels, which is about bait ot tnat last year ine heavy rains which nave prevailed in some sections of the State have seriously damaged the white wheat. The red varieties, where well-stacked, bave so far been uninjured, ex cept a little discoloration of the grain in the exposed bundles. A lew counties noiaoiy, Clsibrne, Hawkins and Scott still report heavy crop3 of wheat; but these are excep tional, and it is possible that the estimates may prove too high when the turesner snail have done its work. More than half the counties in theSUle repoit only half a crop, many one-third, and a tew three-lourths. PATS. Though the wheat crop, has proved almost a failure in the State, it is gratify itig to know tbt the oat crop is the best that has been raised for several years. h,very variety ap pears to have done well, and but few cases of rust appeared up to the first of July. Some damage was done the crop in many counties from severe and long continued rains. In low places, where the oats were rank, the oats have fallen down ana nave ueen materially injured. The weather tor harvesting this crop has been bad, and the harvest in the northern parts 01 tne otit-3 is not over hi tne date of this repoit. The facts justify me in putting the crop at 110. TOBACCO. Thouffh the seasons in the tobacco growing counties have been frequent, latp planta have been exceedingly scarce. When set ot tney nave, in a majority of instances, been scald ed by the intolerable heat of a summer's sun. All fields planted after the thirteenth of June are badly missing. That planted previously stands well, but the growth has by no means been uniform or healthy. Early buttoning is complained of, as well as a spindling and sickly growth. In fact, the season has not been the most tavoraole tor the growtn oi this plant. Too much ram injures the crop, causing it to french and to grow badly. In many places the crop has suffered for want of proper cultivation. Weeds and grass are painfully conspicuous in many tooacco neias. and the continued wet weather in the Clarksville tobacco district gives but little opportunity to work it. The first planting is now coming in top, but the leaves are narrow and poorly developed. I have heard no com plaint ot the horn worm (sphunjc Carolina) and it is to be hoped we shall have a sur cease of its ravages during the season. Un der all the circumstances I do not anticipate that more than a two-thirds crop will be housed. The average in Middle lennesseeis 73 5-12; in West Tennessee, 79 7-10. Sev eral counties heretofore raising it have abandoned its culture for market. HAT. The crop of clover has been exceedingly luxuriant, and those who took advantage of the favorable weather in early June saved a large amount of excellent hay. Timothy and herds-grass have also had a fine growt h, but unfortunately the harvest began just as the wet weather set in. A large amount ot nay has l-een ruined or seriously damaged, and though the growth of the trass was every thing that could be desired I am not pre pared, with the lniormauon ueiore me, to give more than an ordinary average ot this crop. CORN. Never in the history of the State have there been better prospects for this great cereal. Everywhere the fields are waving in the beau ty cf a luxuriant growth. It has now ar rived at the period of silking and tassehng, ami without somo unforeseen calamity the crop will be a heavy one. Usually it has been well tilled, but in a few counties the grass and weeds have damaged it to some ex tent. I feel justified in putting the crop at 110. COTTOJT. Too much rain is complained of in many of the counties. Lice are also affecting the plant. In West Tennessee, Benton reports the crop at 80, Crockett at 90, Decatur at from 75 to 80, Dyer at 110, Fayette at 100, Hardeman at 100, Henderson at from 75 to 90, Henry at 75, Lake at from 75 to 90, Lauderdale at from 80 to 100, Madisoitat 110, Obion at from 75 to 80, Shelby at from 96 to 100, Tipton at from 75 to 90, being on an av erage of 92 for West Tennessee. For Middle Tennessee, Dickson county reports lor cotton 60, Franklin 60 to 75, Giles 50, Marshall 75, Maury 75, Rutherford 100, Wayne 50 and VV ilson 50, being un average of 65 for this division. East Tennessee raises cotton only for domestic consumption. PEANUTS. The planting has been considerably reduced in consequence of the low prices which pre vailed in early spring. I have not full re turns from all the peanut growing counties, but the cron as reported is 75. LABOR. Ii is a fact upon which the people of the State may well congratulate themselves that fewer complaints as to the efficiency of labor has reached this department than usual. When the laborers have been well and promptly paid, and managed with decision and firmness, very little trouble has been ex perienced. On the other hand, where there has been slack discipline and payments for wages deferred, compla nts have been com mon on both sides. The system of cropping has also about run its course. Land-owners now know that, the fertility of the soil and the improvement of the farm cannot be kept up under such a pernicious and miserable system. The only profitable way to employ labor on the farm or in the workshop is to pay promptly and exact obedietce in a'l matters relating to the per formance of the duties for which the laborer is employed. There cannot be two masters on one farm or in one workshop. It is as necessary to success to have a controlling head as to have a center to the solar system. The price of farm hands in East Tennessee, with board, varies from $7 to $12: without board, from $11 to $16; in Middle Tennessee from 8 to $15 with board, and from $12 to $20 without board. The same prices peevad in West Tennessee. G-nerally the highest prices are paid in the tobacco-growing coun ties. IMMIGRATION. Immigration to a southern State invariably falls off in the summer months. During the manth of Jane only eigby-seven reported to this office a having madu the State their permanent abode. Notwithstanding this falling off. it is believed that the State never has bad a better outlook in Xhia regard. Many Luge coloni's are forming with a view of settlirg in Um State during the fall and wintr Ltrge tracts of land have b"pn examined, and negoti itions are pending for their transfer to persons formincr coloni'-s. I'tte-s received from many prominent u n leui?n in the noith give the assurance ot a Urge and profitable immigration Ihi-i full. Not less than a dozen colonies arc now forming. J. B.
