NEW YORK, September 10.
lae movement for the week shows a de?
crease in the receipts and an increase ia the
exports, as compared with those of last year.
We commence with this week the new cotton
year, and make comparisons accordingly
The receipts at all of the ports for the week
have been 9137 bales, against 7579 the last
week, 7844 the previous week, and 7630 three
weeks since. The total receipts since Septem- J
ber 1st have been 9137 bales, against 11,104
for the corresponding period ot the previous
year, showing a decrease of 1967 bales in
favor of the present season. The exports
from all the ports for the week have been
10,193 bales, against 3704 tor tue same week
last year. The total exports for the expired
portion of the cotton year amount to 10,198
bi*?s. against 3701 for the same time last
year. The present stock, as compared with
that ot last year, is as follows :

ALL ABOUT TUE CROPS.
The Oat-Look in Chester.
A correspondent of the Lancaster Ledger,
who his been thro igb the whole county, esti-1
mates the crops of Chester at one-fourth of
thal cf last year. Corn will average better [
than last year.
Sad Accounts of Cotton and Rice.
A Charleston factor allows THE NEWS to
make the following extracts from the letters of j
WADMALAW ISLAND, September 5.
The crops were severely injured by the late
etc rm, certainly cut off one-third.
EDISTO, September 4.
The cotton crop bas been very much dam- j
aged by the storm, and we are lust realizing
the extent of the injury. Good judges esti?
mate the damage ar one-third of the promised [
yield of a few weeks back; this is considered
Hi minimum loss.
Oe ALA, FLA., September 4.
The crops have been seriously damaged by
Storm ? do not think more than a third of a
crop can be made. The storm here was fright?
ful. No malls tor two weeks.
GRAHAMVILLE, S. C., September 7.
We have just passed through a severe storm,
and now are having weather ten times worse;
constant showers, with damp, hot weather,
which is enough to sprout the rice standing in
the fields. The accounts from all directions
are of heavy losses In rice and cotton. If we
do not have cool and clear weather soon, the
crops wlil turn out badly.
The Harvest in Georgetown.
The Times says : "The rice harvest ls In full
blast, and the rice birds are in swarms ol thou
^gands and tens ol thousands. The weather has
sFoeen unusually cool and clear until Tuesday
night, when it commenced to rain. As we
write, just before going to press, the tempera?
ture ls much warmer, and the clouds indicate
that more rain may be expected, and to the
great Inconvenience -nd probable loss to the
Laurens Fall? Short.
A correspondent, writing on the 7th, says :
* 'Since my last we have had a plenty of rain,
succeeded by pleasant weather, which has en- i
abled the farmers to put in a large breadth of |
turnips. The corn crop will be better than
was teared for a while, but the cotton will fall
far short of any crop of late years. Much fod?
der has been damaged, but the hay that is
generally being saved, with a good turnip
crop, will perhaps be equal to the wants ot the
stock that will be kept here."
The Prospect of High Prices.
Mr. William M. Lawton, of Charleston, in a
letter to General Hagood, dated Eastham,
August 8. says : "If our crop of cotton falls
below 3,500,000 bales, high prices will surely
rtile the coming season; but lt must not be
Sreseed too freely on Bale. The consumption
i very large, and spinners fully employed.
I know of one firm of sea Island spinners who
are clearing ?4000 per week at their mills."
A Half Crop in Inion.
The Times says: "Cc ton has Improved a
little since the drought ceased, but the crop
will be a very short r>ne. The rain has en?
larged the bolls and improved the fibre, but
done nothing more; and if the crop reaches
one-half au average, we shall be agreeably dis?
appointed. Although it will be much short of |
last year's yield, lt has been made at less ex
?ense; and if it is not torced into market too
astily, we believe the advance price will
make it more remunerative to the planters
than the heavy crop ot the year just closed."
Bad for Breadstuff*.
The Walhalla Courier says: "In our county
reports of great Injury to the corn crop from
the late freshet comes from every quarter.
The bottoms of the Keowee, T?galo, Little
River and Cane Creek, with their tributaries,
were completely flooded, and several farmers
?consider the Injury from this cause will prove
more serious than from the drought. The up?
lands cannot average a halt' crop.''
COTTON ly OTUER STATES.
Thc Cyclone in Georgia-Immense Dam
V. age to Crops and Railroads.
The Augusta Constitutionalist says:
Last Wednesday a terrific gale, accompanied
by heavy rain, swept over the country, be?
tween Milledgevllle and Macon, prostrating
the cotton and blowing down fences. The
floods did great damage to the Macon and Au?
gusta Railroad and the Central Railroad. On
the latter, the track was washed up lor some
.distance, and several culverts and trestle
?orks were carried away. The passenger train
hlch left Augusta at 12 o'clock Wednesday,
on this road, was stopped at Roberts's Station
by employees of the road who gave the con?
ductor intormatloa ot the break in front, an'l
almost at the same time nf ?va was received ot
the damage which had happened to the t"flck
In the rear of the train since its passage, thus
cutting it off completely. The cyclone extend?
ed as far down as Burke County, doing great
Injury to the cotton in that section, and was
more severe than any storm experienced
there tor years. Other counties yet to hear
from, no doubt, have been equally damaged.
Tblj storm has, perhaps, done greater injury
to the crops than the cyclone which d^pas
tated the coast some time since, as il passed
over a larger tract of country and Immediately
through thc cotton belt.
Blore Bad Accounts from Georgia.
TheAlabany (Georgia ^ews says: Weare
now in possession of reliable data from the
whole of Southern and Southwestern Georgia,
relative to the condition of the colton crop,
and lt is our painful duty to reporta disastrous
failure. This ls no sensational announcement,
and is not based upon doubtlul information.
The best sections ot this portion ol the State
?cannot possibly reach two-thirds ol an average
?crop, while the poorer sections will scarcely
exceed one-third. The acreage or the latter
being much the largest, the plain deduction is
that a halt crop will not be realized. Before
the recent storms and continued rains, the
better lands promised a good yield, but oot a
lull crop. Now the rust 13 making fearful
ravages, and the caterpillar is spreading with
destructive rapidity. We have direct iutelh-1

CRIME IN THE STATE.
A Desperate Knife Duel In Chesterfield.
The Lancaster Ledger prints the particulars
of a desperate rencontre, which took place
near Zoah campground, in Chesterfield Coun?
ty, on Saturday night last, between Mr. Ran?
som Arant and Mr. Joseph Plyler-the former
a citizen of Lancaster, and the latter living
just over the State line lu Union County, N. C.
It appears that a difficulty had sprung' up be?
tween the parties that evening, while riding
along the road on their way to attend preach?
ing at the campground, which was quieted
down, and, as it was thought, satisfactorily
settled. Upon returning home Plyler's horse
happened to kick Arant or the leg, which caused
Amur, to make some id'e threat* against the
horse. From this a quarrel sprung up and both
of them sprang from their horses, drew their
knives and went for each other about the
3ame time. Two gentlemen who were in com?
pany with them endeavored to keep them
apart, but both the combatants being stout
men and resolute in purpose, they rushed at
each other as madmen bereft of reason and
insensible to danger. Tae contest continued
until Aranl's knife (whose hand was wet with
the blood of his antagonist.) slipped from his
hand, when he seized a piece of rail and
knocked Plyler down three times. Other par?
ties arriving at the scene about this time'thc
combatants were separated. Both Piker and
Arant had been drinking cider and were a lit?
tle intoxicated. Plyfer was cut In seven and
Arant in five different places. It is thought
both of them will recover.
Another Stubbing Affray.
The Union Times states that a difficulty oc?
curred on the night of the 31st ult., at Cross
Keys, between Joseph Smith and Wesley
Bobo, in which the lalter wa* ?o severely
"laooed that he now lies in a very precarious
condition. It appears that a party of young
men were out serenading, when a part of one
of the musical instruments was dropped. In
hunting for lt Smith and Bobo came in con?
tact and one of them was pushed down. A
slight difficulty had occurred between them
some time before, and this collision renewed
the ill-feeling. A scuffle ensued, when Smith
plunged his knife deep into Mr. Bobo's side,
reaching the liver. It ls hoped, however, the
wound will not prove to be mortal. Smith
immediately made his escape. A warrant has
been Issued for his arrest. Both were young
men-one aged nineteen, and the other twen?

Sharp and Decisive Talk from Horace
Mr. Greeley was recently in the West at?
tending agricultural conventions, but he nev?
ertheless did not leave his politics at home,
fa ..tassing through Chicago he was met by
.lr. .'entworth and Mr. Grlnnell, formerly
n. .-.uer of Congress from Iowa. In reply to
some personal suggestions from the latter, he
ls reported to have said:
If we nominate Grant we shall certainly be
defeated. The public will stand no more horse
jockey and present-taking Presidents; we have
had enough of them. I tell you, gentlemen,
we must take a new departure, and I can as?
sure you that we of the East are determined
that lc shall be done. I have been rather quiet
about lt so far, but I want everybody now to
understand what I think. When we take
hold ot Grant lt will not be with silk gloves on
our hands. It has got to be done. We must
throw Grant overboard, or we shall be de?
All I want is to have a good man nominated,
who, if elected, will consent to give up the of?
fice at the end of hi3 term. Besides. I want to
nominate a man who, If elected, will elevate
the office to where it was in former days-a
man who will not take presents or use the
military or his office-holders to advance his
own aspirations for a second term, and in the
meantime neglect the interests of those whose
ruler he is. Besides, I want a man who is
above mere pleasure-hunting; a man who will
not dawdle away one-fourth of his term amid
the follies and frivolities of a watering-place,
and one who when called upon -or an expres?
sion of his views on political and other sub?
jects of national Interest, can give them in
clear, comprehensive language. That's the
kind of a man the people want, and (bringing
his fist down on the table) that's the kind of a
man we haven't now. I want you, gentlemen,
to tell your people here in the West thal we
are going to tight against Grant to the extent
of our ability. We will not remain passive or
indifferent, but, to use his own words, "we
are going to fight it out on this Une."

A Sketch of th? Character or Genen
[From the Walhalla Courier.]
General John A. Wagener, Mayor elect <
the City of Charleston, ls spending a rei
weeks in our town. He is regarded, in
great degre?, as the author and founder c
Walhalla, and as such is highly esteemed b
all our citizens, both German and American
Under his auspices the German Society wa
formed, lands purchased, the town laid on
and the thrifty German colonized In our conn
ty. What is now the flourishing Town o
Walhalla, was then a poor, sandy ridge, th?
land being considered a hard bargain a
twenty-five cents per acre. The count'
was without a market or railroad
What a change bas been affected in the las
twenty years, much ot which is Justly at
tributed to General Wagener. He is man o
strong native Intellect, good physique, soun<
judgment and practical Information. In man
ners he is a polished gentleman, affecting n<
ostentation in dress or conversation, the mai
to be popular and to retain the good, will of th<
people by a fair and dignified bearing towarri:
all and a fearless and faithful discharge of th<
duties of a good citizen. During the first ses
sion of the Legislature after the war, he seemed
to appreciate, more fully than any other mern
ber of that body, the great danger, both pollti
cal and industrial, which threatened the peo
pie of the South from emancipation. To pre
vent or mitigate the evils Impending ovei
South Carolina, he strenuously advocated th<
encouragement of foreign white immlgratiot
and introduced a bill Into the Legislature ask
lng aid for that purpose. Aller much opposl
tlon the?pltllul sum ot $10,000 was granted, ?
sum totally Inadequate to any extended bene
flt. How much might then have been done tc
permanently better our condition and pros?
pects by a liberal appropriation and the adop
tion of generous inducements to settlers who
would immigrate to our State? Before ano?
ther session, the storm cloud, which has deso?
lated our Stale with oppressive taxes and an
army of corrupt and extravagant officials, had
arisen. The golden moment was lost; but the
lultllment of the prediction of General Wage?
ner illustrates his good Juggment none the
less forcibly. He ls to day perhaps the most
popular man in the City of Charleston. In the
late contest tor city officers he was selected
by the Conservatives as the man who could
concentrate the greatest number of all
classes and races, and bore the banner
of that party to victory. We predict
that bis administration of the city govern?
ment will be a success, fair and just to all races
and conditions, and satisfactory to the public.
With the characteristic of his race he will
doubtless use every exertion to Inaugurate
economy, reduce taxation, Improve the finan?
cial condition ot the city, preserve order and
enforce a system of cleansing and policing,
which will In the future defy all epidemics and
malarial fevers. The prospects ot Charleston
are brighter by his election, and If she will be
true to herself and spread her banner before
the public, she will soon regain and retain her
old prestige as a market and prosperous sea?
port city. 80 mote lt be.

pS* PURIFY THE BLOOD.-IT IS AN
established fact that a very large class of disor?
ders can only be cured by such remedies as will
enter Into the blood, and circulate with lt through
every portion of the body; for by this means only
can thc remedy be brought into immediate con?
tact with the disease. Ta obtain this desirable
end no preparation has ever been SJ uniformly
successful as DR. JAYNE'S ALTERATIVE. Scro?
fula, Ring's Evil, Cancer aud Cancerous Tumors,
White Swellings, Enlargement of the Bones,
Chronic Rhumatlsm and Gout, Eruptive Diseases
of thc Skin, Old and Indolent Ulcers, Goitrous
Swellings of the Throat, *c, are cured with a
cerialnty which has astonished every beholder.
It ls, besides, one of the most pleasant articles
that can be takea Into the stomach; operating as
a tonic, it removes Dyspepsia and Nervous Affec
tions, and imparts a glow of animation and health

pS* INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE
ON HEATLII.-In the fall the difference between
the temperature of night and day ls greater than
at any other time of the year. In the early au?
tumn the quicksilver sometimes rises as high dur?
ing the day as In the most fervid summer weather;
while a: night it often sinks to an almcs: wintry
point. The Inman body no: being made 0: steel
or India rubber, sensibly feels these tremendous
changes. To fortify the system against them, a
genuine tonic i3 reqairtd; and the public 1".aa long
since discovered that araeng thia description of
medicines HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS ls
infinitely the beat. I: gently quickens the circu?
lation, regulates the bowels, tones the liver, bra?
ces the nerves, and thus pats the whole physique
on Its defence against the vicissitudes of tempe?
rature in our ciima'e. Few, if any cases 0.' epi?
demic fever are heard of in localities where i: ls
In common use. As 1: becomes more and more
widely known, and the demand for it increases,
chills and fever, and the bilious remittent seem
to recede before ir, and If ever 1; should come
into univers ?1 use, iheae d!sea3C3 would cease to
be known as the scourges of our low-lying and
marshy districts. That homely blt of proverbial
philosophy, tba: ' prevention I* better than cure,"
should be especially berne in mind in the autumn
months; and indeed in all seasons, together with
the fact that, among si! the preventlvc3 of mala?
rious disease, Hostett r'a Stomach Bitters ia the
most safe aa.I potent..
Be certain, however, to obtain the genuine arti?
cle, as countless imitations of a pernicious char- ,
cter are abroad. See that the externals are all
right, and remember that Hostctter'a stomach
Bitters ls sold In bottles aloa?.
