But while we- insist upon the truth ol these facts wa ate sorely puzzled to account f straogirs and to ourselves, why it is that, almost every day, we sou arriving at our wharf, delivered for rule, and lor th coniump'.ion. of our people, utmost even article (except hemp, tobacco and wheat) which our rich tad thrifty agriculturist. ought to produce and furnish. Savin. nothing of plows, carta, wagon, casting-!. and other agricultural articles which ui mechanic ought to furnish, we are pained to see, almost every dy, landing from above and below, corn, corn-meal, flour, chop-sturT for feed, potatoes, butter, and even eggs. It Is well known that our fam ily grocers, In order to a supply, for the demands of the city, ore contained to go or send to our more frugal or more indu strious neighbors of Illinois and Iowa, or to St. Louis, for large quantities of the above mentioned articles. But the city people are not their only customers. Respectable farmers are often found buying potatoes, bacon, flour and meal, so imported ! How is this? Will any one furnish the true cause? We alio import largely of another pro. duct of the Held ; but on this, except as to the quality, we manage to make up the dil ference In exchange. We import largelv of whisky ot a good quality.

So that, except to tnuc,h of it as we indirectly exchange for hemp, tobacco and wheat, in the buck country, we are nearly even-with our neigh, bora on that article. This exchange is in direct, it is true, but thoe other article- operate in a manner to produce a direct drain of my and a Itss. It may be that our country u not suflicie&tly settled; or that the facilities of good road ar wimtiag. Botlx, perhaps, may be pleaded , but we hope that, when our plunk roads are fin ished, and when the railroad shall be put in motion, that instead of importing we shall be able to obtain supplies for home con sumption and for export. We could ray much on this subject, but our limits forbid, at this time.
