Mr. N. O. Wallace Dear Sir:
It is an old saying: the eyes are nev
er satisfied with seeinc nor the eais.
with hearing. One cleir hriaht mnm. !
ing, when the sun in all his golden
radiaDce was approaching the horizoD,
I took my stand on one of the spurs
of the Ozark or Boston mountains,
an ulmighty structuroof God's form
ation, and stood awe-struck with as
tonishment and amazement to. see
the magnificent works of Him who
rules heaven and earth. The beauty,
grandeur, and sublimity of the scene
ry, my pen will ftil when attempting
to describe. Casting my eyes to
wards the south-west, away over tie
Arkansas riter there arose the Mig
eaine mountain, whose towering top
appeared almost to reach the clouds.
There was a vast valley lay between.
I could behold the littlo rivulets or
streams with their silver raya winding
their way towards the Arkansas riv
er. Ever and anon I could see the
stnoke ascending from some neigh-
jboriiig farm, where they were prepar
ing for agriculture. There were
'thousands of cattle grazing on the
wide-extended prairie, and the deer
bounding over the plain. Casting
my eyes towaniv tne west, l beheld
a strait in thevsonsas river, at 40
inile3 distance, running aloug the foot
of Shoal mountain. There. were the
mighty steamers of the West, puffing
their engines, heavy ladened with

been gathered from off the rich and
fertile soil of the Arkansas valley,
beuring them away down the mighty
waters to the Crescent City. Turn
ing my eyes and taking a view to
wards the north, there I beheld
mountain rising and towering above
mountain, until, in my imagination,
I made to exclaim like a man of

The Resources of the Sonih.
A little work ha just ,been pub
isbed in North Carolina, entitled "The
Impending Crisis in the South-" It
is from the pen of gentleman named
Helper, and it embodies mush useful
in!brmation - ;tf the fona 0f statistics.
The Savannah News, however, denies
many of its statements, and endeav
ors to give a true view of the South.
The editor gives the following as ex
hibiting the exports of the year end
ing June 30, 1850:
Hemp, - -Cotton
good?, - "
G 967 309
Ilemp goods and cordage, 393.217i
.- , 154,489,309
He then makes the following addi
tions: . . . .
Produce of the Seas
- a -Forest -"
V g,t:;ble food
Other r gricultural produce, 11,466
The aggregate is $170,398,011;
or nearly 57 per cent, of. the entire
foreign exports of the country. The
News further remarks:
If, now we add to. this already large
4. iL . i 1 t
u:.k x .l-. Tv-
for consumption, the balance will be
still more in favor of the South. Our
Wheat, Flour, Corn, Sugar, Rice,1
Tob: icco, and other articles shipped
North, amount annually to a very lage
sum. The shipments of Wheat from
this port alone, to. Northern ports, for
the yiar ending September 30, 1856,
amount d to about 450,000 bushels.
The present Wheat crop of North and
South Carolina, Georgia and Tenn
essee is estimated by competent
judges to amount to four and a half
millions of bushels. The larger 'part
of thi will be shipped in the shape
of Flour and Wheat from Charleston
and Savannah, and most of it to New
It thus r.ppears that instead of
being almost bankrupt, commercially,
as this Mr. Helper, and his Northern
abettors would have the people believe,
we actually contribute more to . the
productive industry of the country
than does -the, North; and, besides
feeding our own population, we have a
large surplus, which we send to
afford food and employment to those
who revile us and disparage our indas-
try- -. ' .' . . ' .
We omitted to-jmention, previous
ly, that, the export of gold and silver
coin and bullion are included in the
total' exports for the year, This
amounts to $44,148,279, nearly allbfi
which is sent from Boston and New
York, and ought; 'perhaps, to be de
ducted from the amount credited to
the North, as it is scarcely to be con
sidered an article of productive indus-
try - ' t ' ' : . '
' No excuse for it! The opponents
of the democratic party .will not say
that they were beaten in consequence
of the apathy or indifference of their
party, The known nothings from
Carter to Shelby were fully equipped
and fully aroused, and were beaten be
cause a large mrjority of the- people
are opposed to' their principles. The

- The Price of Sugar. The 1 Kew
YorkTimsS, in predicting a decline
tn .the price of sugar, says:
The prospects . of a full crop are
highly encouraging. The high prices
which have ruled tho'past two years,
have stimulated production, while
they have caused a diminution of con
sumption; and the natural consequen
ces are increasing stock and a tenden
cy to lower prices; besides, the crop of
Louisiana promises to oe neany iour
times greater than it was last year,
and the yield of maple ugar has been
much larger than was ever known be

. "Every field from; Itasca to Mon-W

ted fields scarce a blade being, left
to indicate that a flourshing crop h id,

On a few pieces of wheat, short stubs
of the stalk were left, but each with
from one to ten grasshoppers on it,
finishing the remnants as rapidly as
their digestive organs would permit.
But on the greater part of the field.,
and all indeed in the vicinity of Mon
ticello, although the crops came up
and grew beautifully for a short lime,
not a siogie , inmcation oi growing
grain of any kind whatever can be
discovered. Wheat, oats, com, pota
toes, and gardens all have shared
the same fate, and become food for
the destroyer. Nay, more, the insa

taking the crop,' forced . thtii way

Much was said, and, it rmyt be, mor3

discussion, a Mrs. Levvu,

woman delivered herself by saying:
-That she was in favor of universal
freedom, and that loving whomsoever
she chose w is a part of that freedom,
and to confine her to love ono man
was a abridgement of her rights.
She said that, "although she had one
husband in Cleveland, she considered
herself . m irried to the wholis race.
All men were husbands, and she had
an undyiug . love for them." She
said also, "what business U it to the

bia Jiorth Alabamim of the 7th says:
Rain has fallen almost every day for
the past two or three weeks, " th
water courses ar full and the roads
nearly as bad as in mid-wintei. Corn
looks finer than we ever saw it before
in this valley, and tho crop is now

planted, and we. venture tho assertion
that the yield will he l.nrgpr than has
been known in twenty years past.

that .flour will be cheap next winter.
In the face of the favorable accounts
of the Wheat crop, from all parts of
