i Cotton Crop.—A letter from Ed Is- :
| to Island, received at the Chailecton!
Courier Office, says—
* The late tempestuous weather has
been of great injury !o the Oo:v»n crop j
in exposed situation-. Every field has ,
suffered hurt in a gre iter or less tf-gree.
'I'iie damage would not have been ro
much as we now find it to he, if the Col
ton had been mote forward, ils back
wardness rendered it p*’tu!iailv liable to |
be affected 'by the winds. From the j
same cause, although the plants, where
the fine seed is not planted, promises a
lair harvest, yet no calculations as to the j
resuit can be made—should ihr drought j
continue a week longer, and be succeed
ed by heavy showers of rain. I scarcely j
need say, that the eff ct will be in the J
highest degree disastrous—on the con
trary, should we be visited by moderate
showers, the crop will prob inly be a fair
one. it cannot be large. The gale of ti e
last week has di-eased the plant; low
lands, rather lands that a1** not quite
high, horn the present appearance ol the
frui-t cannot be expected to produce
much.*’

A launch belonging to the In Ypen
