Tho crop of cotton in our District
thisycar will probably fall a little
short of one-third of a fall oro as es
timated in 1860.. 'That year the odt
ton crolp could not havo fidlon short.of
20,000 bales. Those twenty thousand
bales broiiglht into the Di'strict about
$800,000. ETtimating the crop this
year, I86i, at loss than one-third, sa y

Ilut thte cotton is br.ingilng, anttd will
continue to bring more tan 25 cents,
hence the amioutit tof moitney in ex
change for the cotton crop will notfall
very far short of .what it was in 1860.
Since writing the above, we have
been furn isled by request (not having
I lie statistic inl our possession) with the
nehil amount of cotton mado in the
I)istric, acori'di'g to the census of

the money for the cotton of the Dis

It is a question whether'our cotton

cotton tas is paid in Columbia, and
whtet her our nierrlbants camn sell grocer

ohants can. We would thantk sonme

the information, and cnable~us to an
swrer tiese questions. If this market
can compete withthe Colnbia market,
we have no fear as to a driving t'rado*
horo -this Fall. Producers are push
ing cotton to Columbia now bocauso
more is paid for it there than here,
and because groceries waroecheaper.
Sugar, for inst anco, ai fair lIrown sugar,
is bought there, so we are informed,
at eighteen cenuts by the barrel.'
Our merehants Surely appreciate thme

Dropeof the Distrlct this Fall. There

Appeal to thme'poekets. Tell the far

Strange Advice. .
It is advised by some not to plend
cotton because a heavy tax l6 now lid
by the General Government upon
overy pound made in the South. This
is very much. akin. to that advice
which prevailed to some extent before
the war, as to the purcihao of goods.
eloro is our advice, atd to givo it
is just as if we were . to sit on tle
banks of the Niagart and advise the
waters of that. stream to tumble over
the Falils . But here it is, and not to
give it or rather to advise against it,
is repeating the, commiahd of .the fool
ish king, when seated' in his throno
upon the sea-boach, he coinganded th'e
tidos to ceaso their flow when -they
reached his chair-of-state.
To the merchants-buy where you
call buy the cheapest.
To -the planters-plant whatever
will pay most.
To everybody. af ' his son-study
your odn interest.
The So-ith.
The dostiny of the South is the fate
of Fafeflold District.. Whflo we -have
no, desire to screen the worst as.
pl'ots of the current of .events as it
flows by, it is advisablo that a digni.
fled composure characterize us under
the veally ominous clowd now growing
darker and darker above our political
horizon. Let us push on as though the
utmost propperity awaited u6. It is
wor'so than childish to fold our arms
and growl . over the rudeness with
which wo have been treated, or puton
a long face of melancholy at what
seems to'bo in store for us. Let us
rather go on just as if there was not a
Radical outiide of 'the Chinese wall.
