TIE COTTON CROP.
- We have been enabled toglean from our exchanges the following information relative to the situation of the Cotton Crop, from which, our Planters wl1 be able to judge, whether it is better to dispose of their crop at present pri ces, or hold on for better. The Mobile Journal of ,'onmcrcc, of tIe20th -nlt., says: ' With regard to the estimate of this season's crop, we,have until very recently inclined to the behef that it would reach 1,900, 000 bales and n more From representations made to us within the last three or four weeks we believe it may probably fall somewhat low er, thought the havy rains that have fallen with an the last six weeks have not, we are inclined to-think. destroyed altogether the cotton in the fields, and with what may bi yet saved and brought into n:arket. though inferior and ordi nary in quality, there is sone plausibility in counting upon a crop of from 1,800,000 to 1. 850,000 bales, Estimates, however are made in New Orlean as low 1,600.000 bales. ' The Mobile len cantile Adcertiscr, ofthe 21st ult., says:-Accounts come in very unfavora bly from every section of the cotton growing country of late. The rain has probably con pleted the destruction of neatly all the cotton in the fields and such as has not been housed. There has been no weather favorable to gath ering for the last six weeks, and the cottons unpicked previous to the commencement of the rains, we learn from all quarters, is either beaten out of the bolls and into the earth, or has commenced sprouting in the bolls that still adhere to the stalk. The Register of the 22d tilt. says:-Acconnts from the country represent the rains as exces sive, all the water courses being filled to over flowing,'and the low lands inindated, to the - serious damage of the residue of the cotton crop remaining in the fields. Here. we have had nearly a week of constant rain day and aright; yesterday it cleared off with the pros pect of fair weather. The New Orleans Balletin of the same date says:-The weather continues exceedingly in. element; so much so, that in all the lower ct ton region, picking must be entirely suspended, and the remaining bolls greatly injured if not destroyed, Business in the city is also much retarded by the same cause. The Tuscumbia North Alabamian says: " If other portions of the growing donntry have suffered from the long continued rains propor tionably with this. the expectation of an abu., dant crop is not likely to be realized." From the complexion of the accounts we have lately received from the interior. we should not be surprised if the receipts of this year at the port of Mobile should fall short of 400,000 bales. Mad Dogs. -Tnie Pendleton Messenger of the 19th tilt. says : " Fur two weeks past, the country has been in a state of alarm respecting mad dogs. About that time a dog passed through our village, which from certain cir cumstances, was supposed to be mmad. c started nine miles below this, and in his pro gress, till lie was killed five miles ahov., was - known to have bitten several dogs. and hogs. A man was also hiten by hint on the little fin. ger, which was taken of' about 2.1 hours after. When we last heard from him,he had exhibited no symptoms of Hy Iouno.ia, a- d ::"e e -v ery probability that he will not :.e efferted by it. A Cow and a hog in the neighbtorhood be came diseased, and the symptumis were those generally exhibited by rapid animals. Yet it was not known that either of these;' ad been h~itten. .ir that the dog alluded to, had been 'in either of tihe places they were. We have hmeard of one or two persons being bitten tm the.s trict below us. buit do' not know how much confidence is to be reposed in thme rumor." --. Fo'rthe Adcertiser. Unr.x Ve c-r, or Astragalus L., a genns of inrdigeuns, perennial plants. counsistintg of 80 species; the principal of which, is the Glycy guhylilos.commoni or sweet Milk Vetch, Liquor ice Veteb, Wihd Liqnorice, or Liquorice Cock. shed: it growvs in meadows, pastures, and on ditch banks, where it flowers in the months of June amid Juty. This plant wvili thrive with: tuncomnmpn 'luxuriance in poor barren soiIs; amid yield an abnndance of tender and steecn lenut herbage. Its cultivation has therefore. been strongly recomamended by Dr Anderon, who observes, that it would be an excellent winter fodder, for cattle, which devour it with avidity. Cows depastured on this plant. are said to yield an abundance of ridh milk; from which circumstance it has received its most proper E nglish name.-Domestic Eancydiopedia.

Its roots possess ani extremely bitter taste, together with gli the virtues of the American Rattle Snake root. According to *Dr. Hammel, it is eiven with success in Piur itic cases, operatiung as a ptirgative, enmetic, and dieretic. A spoonful of te deeoctiomn, made by boiling ani ounce of tbe herb in a pinit of water, till one haif be evaporated, sensibly -promotes perspiration, as well as expectoration, apd has therefore been used with advantage in Catarrhal fevers and defluxionse on the lunmgs -three spoonsfuli of this imdicine taken eve . v hour. have sometimes afforded considerable relief in dropsical cases. YA.-Yam, or Dioscorca Bulbifera, C., is a -native of Ceylon, whmence its culture has been introduced into the WVest Indies, anid other parts of America; it is divided into two varie ties, k nown under thme iame of red and white; from the color of their bulbous roots .Yams flourish best onm pour soils; and retaini their beautiful verdure till a late pteriod in tho year; hence they are said to ameliorate the grounid nearly as mumchi as a crop of turnips. Being propagated by setting the eyes, their culture cormespmnds with that of potatoes, amnd like these roots. Yams ofteni prove an escellenit preparatory crop for wheat. Farther, they mre very productive; so that, thme red variety yields, in general, 12 tons per acre: thme white -isort is less fruiitful; hut, being more delicate, it is chiefly raised for the table, in thme W~est Indies. The culture of these bulbour roots in Britain is, at present, we understand, confined to the counties of Mid-Lothmin, and Stirling; where they are given to cows, thme milk of which is thsconsiderably increased, without affecting its quality or flavor. Asan article of food,the Yam possesses sim ilar properties with the potatoe, excepting that - 'is less mealy; in a raw state, it is vicions; bbiwhen roasted, this bulbous root is equally wvhaebame and nourishing, so that the inhabi thuts of tlih..yotst Indies pnrefer it even to bread. valnable than potatoes; because the former are much lighter, and more easily digested when first Tug out of .the ground, then dried in the sun, and ptlverised from humidity, in casks full of dry sand, they may be kept for several years, uninjured by frost. and without losing any parts of their nntritive quality. These beneficial roots may'also be pulled, de prived of their moisture by pressure. and dried it the same manner as Mr. Millington directs potatoes to be preserved, (see vol. v. page 326.) In this manner, Yams may be packed in casks, like flour, and imported in a perfectly sound state, from the WVest Indies; when grated, and mixed with wheat or barley flour, they may be formed into a light and salubrious bread, Nor are the% less nourishing, when converted into pottage. or pudding, with the addition of milk. Thus Mr. R. Pearson (Annals of Agri. cuture, vol. xxxv.) informs ns that the meal, obtained from the boiled or grated roots, when beaten up with milk and eggs, without any flour, yielded a firm and welt flavored dish, which would with difliculty be distinguished from a common batter pudding. By this treat ment, the Yams are divested oftheir saccharine taste. which renders them at first disagreeable to some persons; though sur.h property, is, on the whole, of considerable use; as it saves the expense of sugar L.' Allered Bile.-Our attention was yes terday called to another case of deception in a batik bill, which it is proper to notice in order to prevent fraud. A twenty dol lar.bill was sent to a metcantile house in this city, purporting to be of the Commer cial Bank of Columbia, but on examina tion proves to he an old plate of the Com mercial Bank of Macon, long since extinct the words "Georgia" and "Macon" are extracted by some chemical process, and "South Carolina" and "Columbia" inser ted in their place. The hill is dated 20th May. 1841. and signed A. Blanding, Pres ident, and J. Ewart, Cashier. The for mer gentleman was once President of the Columbia Bank but departed this life; much lamented, some time previous to the above date, and while occupying the sta tion of President of the South Western Rail Road Bank, -and the latter named never occupied the station of Cashier. The plate is so difl'erent from those in cir eulrtion that detection will be easy with aiv one who pays attention.-Charleston C'ourier. From the Augusta Chronicle & Sentinel, Mail Rtobery.-The subjoined letter from a gentleman in Washington. Wilkes county. to his friead in this city, gives the details of another mail robbery. Would it not be well to ascertain of the driver his reasons for putting the mail in the hind boot ? This circumstance, unexplained .,,t; ratter :"lisktv." Dear---:-Our citizens were al' thrown into consternation yesterday morn ing, on the arrival of the Hack from Don io Wells without the mail. The driver did not know it was missing until It. drove to the Post Office to deliver it: and. upon examination, found that the fasten ing behind, where the trunks are carried, was broken open, and a trunk gone with the mail bag, which he had also put he hind, a thing altogether here unusual, Mr. Vickers, the contractor, immediately went in pursuit of the mising mail,'and found. in about a mile of Double Wells, some forty letters all broken open and rifled of their contents-the trunk broken and all in it taken out. supposed to contain wear ing apparel only. Mr. V. carefully picked tip all the letters and brought them to our Post Oice.-Yours to me, giving account of sales of my 8 bales cotton, was among them. but no check : alsi, one from you to J. t. Lewis of same character, and ma ny others. As yet, none hnve beeti found with bills enclosed. We cannot tell what will lie the extent of this robbery. Youtrs, &c. Man Killed.-We learn that a man na-nd Harper was killed by the Georgia Rail .Road. cars, .jeau Madison, oni Sa turday morning. Hie was subject to fits, aiid it is supposed had been attacked atid lay down wvith his head on the rond, jnst at the ertminattion, and on the itnside of n short ctttrve, and wns not seen liy the en gineer until he was so ntear that lie could nor possibly, with, all his e(trts, stp) ' e engine unitil it had passed over the head of the unfortunate man. From thme Saran:nahr Georgian, Dcembecr 25. Fire.-We stop the Press to announce the destruction by fire of te Fotndery of Mr. A. N. Miller, on the Eastern wvharves. The alarm wvas given abotut half past two o'clock this morning, and before assistance could avail, from the remoteness of the po sition and the hour of the nighit, the earn ings of an industrious and worthy me chanic were wretedi from his possession. His loss is a'out seven thousantd dollars, including machinery atid buildings. No insturance. His Carpenter's shop only, and by the weoll dlirected exertions of the firemen, wvas saved. In a communhty like this, we hope to see some relief, in tho form of a loan, afforded io our worthy fel low citizen, which will enable him to'comn mnenee agaiu his useful pursuit. WVe have not seeni a drunken man in the -treets of Augusta during the holidays. There has been, doubtless, much dritnking goitng on behind the scenes; but it has niot come otnt to open dlay lIght. It is one important effect of the Ternperatnce move ment that occasional drunkenness has be come more disgraceful than it was formner ly reckotied, and drinking at all is qttite in disrepute. There can be no question that there has been a great change in thisr~e spect.

An average condition of the supply of any article of trade of general use and whose value regulates that of many others of daily consumption and commerce, pro duces, a medium stare of prices the most conductive to general prosperity. Let us apply this general remark to the present condition of the cotton market. We can not but perceive that while an average crop was expected there was nothing to excite speculation. With the leading. provocative to mercantile excitement the great abundance of money, all was quiet ness and tranquility. But this expecta tion became changed. A defciency, to an unascertained extent, succeeded this anticipation. The speculative feeling has been gradually growing stronger as this assurance of a deficiency became con firmed, until speculation begins now to assume the features ofalarmn--say alarm, for nothing could be more effectu'al in ar resting the return of the country to confi dence and prosperity than a speculative excitement in the article of cotton, the great regulator of o:her values, It is to be perceived that the market is not govr-rned as usual by a natural, but by an -tificial state of supply and de mand, ' ed by the comparative abun dunce of money on this side of the Atlan tic. The consumption and wants of the European market have ceased, for the mo ment. to regulate the value on this side. Capitalists have consequently the power of holding over in the American markets to the great temporary injury of a sound and wholesome condition of trade. We say temporary injury, for the reaction cannot be delayed longer than a shipment of specie, caused by the retention of Cot ton on this side of the water and the con sequent scarcity of lills drawn against it shall rectify the eyil. The Spring impor tations from Europe compared with 1842 and '43, will be large, and the coin now accumnlared in our banks, which should be diffused over the interior, to supply the void caused by the withdrawal of pa per money, may and will go back in a large stream to Europe. Any considera ble movement of specie to rectify a ba lance of trade. produced by artificial scar city, is a great evil, and however some parties may appear to benefit by this scar city, in theenbanced price of the exports, the country at large suffer. injury in all its other business relations. In the present condition of things a reflux of the current by which any large portion of the preci ous metals shall he driven back to Eu rope, must retard the restoration of con fidence with a healthy state of trade. The channels of domestic and internal commerce want replenishing with a spe cie currency that will invigorate it. The abundant crops of the present year would enable those parts of the Union which have been deprived of their bonk to snp ply the equivalent for s eeie in the pro ducts of their industry. But if fictitious values send the stream of hard money in an opposite direction to that which nati ral causes would lead it to take, every well wisher to the regularity of trade will have cause to regret the circumstances by which such a forced condition things is produced. From the Old Dominion. MENRY CLAY AND THE ANTIMA SONS. This desperate gambler having placed his stakes for the Presidency in the "po litical wheel of fortune," on the wh/ite and black. Slavery and Abolition, and having risked on the cotunter columns of a Pro tective Tariff and Free Trade ; has, to take "all the chances," now laid heavily on double zero, sacrificing to ttnchiastencd amnltition his oldest atnd best friends, on the altar of Ant inasonry. There is one fact stared tby Mr. Clay wvhichn will somewhat astonisht the public, as it has done us, and that is, his -'great repugnance to appear before the puiblic oun airy sttbject," when Ire has been wriuiung Ileters on euery subject for (he public eye trom a protective to ritT, dlowtn to a bottle orf Cologne water, andI a b/ue-ash pole. But to come to the matter before rus. Mr. Clay has been adl dressed by an Anrimnasotn, iMr. Reigart, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to knowv "itn what relation that individual stands to the Institution of Free Masonry?" to whibch Mr. Clay answers, that be became a mason ini early life ; that he never had any taste for, nor was much skiled in rho mysteries of the order, although he bears testimony that all the objects of the Itusti tution, so far as he was made acqunainted wit h them, were "charitable and benevo teat." Is it it for these i-invut:s that Mr. Clay has but little or no taste? Further to ingratiate ~himself with this fanatical and proscriptive band, he gives them no tice that he officially, wvithdrewv from the order "NtNETEEN YEARs Auo." and to identify himself with, and show that he was wor-thy of their ,support, ho goes on to state thrat he is now opposed to and by the most eminent men in the country. who are masons, and further, partic-ulari zes Iris own acts: "in 1825 I s'otedl FOR Mn.

Titere is no doubt that Mr. Clay is a good enough AN TrMasoN for them ; hav ing for the last "ninety years" acted with theta; on all questions, lie is sure for their vote.

Gambling in Charleston-I f the followv ing Ire true-it ought to be wvidely known: We have it from the most unquestionable authority that a youtng man out of employ merit, poor, but very respectably connec ted, and having a large circle ofacquain tances, both itt the city' and on thne neigh boring islands, was olfered a salary of 8600 a year, together with his'board at ny otel whIrch he migaht selectndw his tailors bill paid, provided he would act as a decoy to:one ofithe Gambling Estaplish ments in the city. But as he declined the temptinglhait; it is very probable some oth er person with less scrupiesofconsecieuce and moral prineples to oprcome, has sold himself to the same piractiral gang. And many a green. one,--a planter,--or the son of a planter,-a merchar.t, or the clerk of a merchant,---may be caught in the mesh es thus laid for their feet.-We also learn from the same source, that similar estab lishments, are numerous; and they are fre quented by persons who are suspected of hnaving any gambling propensities. One of these 'las lately caught, and under the ex citement of stimulating drink, played deep er than liis purse, and for the deficit gave his note for $400. When he had fairly come to himself, -he resolved that he would not pay the note, and returned to the es tablishment, where he announced the res olutton.---\Whereupon the noto was at once produced, and torn up before him ; and he warned never again to appear in the estab lishment. The effect was wonderful. Poor man he had forfeited his honour! The Gamblers, by profession, were themselves, far superior to him in nobleness of soul, and he was thus thrown into that condi tion which was bordering upon lunacy; and it was with difficulty be could be pre vented from laying violent hands upon himself. The money ofcourse, was paid, though his honest creditors, or his family may have been sulil'era. We give these incidents as war-ings. And as this city is becoming more and more the rendezvous of Gamblers, it i. quite time that some decided stand should be taken to abate the nuisance.-The num-' her of them is variously estimated at from one hundred to three hundred; and including all that are in there employ, decoys, sha vers, and th like.-the last estimate is not perhaps any too large.-Charleston Observer.

Commercial. A VoUsTA, Dec. 2S. Remarks.-We observe by the western pa pers that the rains continue to flood the cotton growing region. This, of course. has given strength to the opinion, that the present wvill be a greatly dimmnished ciop. Indeed many of the speenlations which came to us front the west. argue the probability that the crop will not exceed 1,600,0010 hales. The facts upotn which this conclusion is founded are meagre atid questionable, and we 'cannot hesitate to prononnce the opinmon dangeroUs; jnst as much so as the opposite one, that the crop will reach 2,000,000 hales. It cannot he pretended that either of them' arc formed wvith an unbissed t..,tument. The moderate of both parties in this country, appear to agree in the amount of 1,800,000 bales, the nearest airoximation. Admitting, then, that the crop w not exceed this amount, are we certain of results which would spring from such a diminished crop. Hove we any reason, with such a state orthe case, to ex pect an advance upon present.prices. It murt he apparent to all, that even the, existing de mand is specnlative in, its character. It may. be more rational than the feverish excitement which imprudence has so often engeidered. It may be better founded in well ascertained facts than the speculations which have former ly proven so disastrous: yet. notwithstanding, it must be admitted that it has no better ascer tained' data than the probable- extent of the crop, and the probable amount ofconsumption. We learn that in Liverpool the impression pre vailed, that the crop would not exceed 1,800, 000 bales; but we heard of no material ad. vance, which speenlation would certainly have produced, if it had been warranted by a proba ble consumptive demand. They anticipated, on the contrary, a fine export trade in the- .arti cle, from the fact that prices are higher here than there. We would not say that present prices in America will. not be sustained; for that would also be speculative ; but we will not refrain from repeating our advice to purchasers and holders, of cautiotsness and moderation. Colton.-Tho receipts during the week have been 'noderate, and principally by Rail Road. The sales have been limited, owing to the fact that very little Cotton has been offering. The advices per the Hibernia has had, no percepti ble influence upon the market; the impiove ients of last week having been well sustained, and holders continuing firm in their demands. We qnte the extremes of the market at from 71 to 9e. A choice lot would bring something over the above rate.-Constitutionalist. CowuanuA, Dec.28. Colton.-There is but little coming in, as usual during the oChristmas holidays. and of conrse but little doing in the article. The late Liverpool acounts by the Hibernia have pro duced no change in this market, as yet, and whether they will do so, will depend on the ad. vices to be received of their effect on the Northern markets. There had been previously a slight advance on our quotations of Wed nesdiy last, and the current rates may now be quoted at 74 a 9 cents, extremes. We under stand that 94 Bents were offered for several liidred hales yesterday. and refused ; and that for one lot us nigh as 10 cents were offered. CarolLuua. Selling oil' .11t Reduced Prires.
